Maxine Waters of California is an example of Democrats
entrenched in Congress who have contributed to the
mortgage crisis and economic downturn and if allowed
will turn this country into a socialist state.


From a Wall Street Journal article dated March 12, 2009:
“Waters Helped Bank Whose Stock She Once Owned
California Democrat Has Championed Minority-Owned OneUnited on Capitol Hill and Criticized Its Government Regulators”
“WASHINGTON — When Rep. Barney Frank was looking to aid a Boston-based lender last fall, the Massachusetts Democrat urged Maxine Waters, a colleague on the House Financial Services Committee, to “stay out of it,” he says.

The reason: Ms. Waters, a longtime congresswoman from California, had close ties to the minority-owned institution, OneUnited Bank.

Ms. Waters and her husband have both held financial stakes in the bank. Until recently, her husband was a director. At the same time, Ms. Waters has publicly boosted OneUnited’s executives and criticized its government regulators during congressional hearings. Last fall, she helped secure the bank a meeting with Treasury officials.”
“Such potential conflicts of interest are more serious as the banking system’s crisis has led the government to take an increasingly active role in overseeing financial institutions, including OneUnited. The financial-services committee on which Ms. Waters sits oversees banking issues, and the lawmaker is a potential future chairman.”
“Sheila Krumholz, executive director of the Center for Responsive Politics, a watchdog group, says Ms. Waters should have recused herself from any matters involving the bank. If her support helped OneUnited, “it was a disservice to her constituents,” Ms. Krumholz says.”
“OneUnited’s executives have donated $12,500 to Ms. Waters’s election campaigns.”
“Ms. Waters and her husband, Sidney Williams, were investors in two African-American owned California banks that merged with other lenders in 2002 to form OneUnited. Congressional financial-disclosure forms show Ms. Waters acquired OneUnited stock worth between $250,000 and $500,000 in March 2004, as did Mr. Williams. Mr. Williams joined the board of OneUnited that year.”
“In a brief interview in January, Ms. Waters said she was unaware the bank received $12 million of TARP money, which arrived in December. OneUnited was “just a small” bank, she said.

A provision designed to aid OneUnited was written into the federal bailout legislation by Mr. Frank, who is chairman of the financial-services panel. Mr. Frank has said he inserted the provision to help the only African-American owned bank in his home state. He said in an interview that Ms. Waters’s interest “had zero impact on the outcome because I would have done it anyway.””

Dean Haskins, of Restore the Constitutional Republic, has produced
a video for the We The People Foundation. The video, produced
February 14, 2009, addresses how government is out of control and
not accountable and why we have a economic catastrophy and
Constitutional crisis. Plans for a Continental Congress 2009
are also announced.

“The We The People Foundation is committed to educating Americans
about their Fundamental Rights and the history, meaning and power
of the Constitution, and the essential Principles of Liberty.

Where our servant governments have abused the limited authorities
that the People have delegated, the Foundation confronts and holds
these governments accountable to the federal and state written
Constitutions.”

A letter received by the Citizens Wells blog that was posted
in the US Constitution Hall of Shame on on January 6, 2009:

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the
Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and
domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same;
that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation
or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge
the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.”

Hall of Shame

A letter received from Representative John Mica of
Florida regarding Barack Obama’s eligibility issues:

“August 18, 2008
Thank you for your fax message regarding Barack Obama’s eligibility
to run for president. I appreciated hearing from you.

As you know, emails questioning Senator Obama’s eligibility to serve as
President have been circulating in the internet for number of months.
Generally they are considered to be hoaxes and without merit. As you may
know, Senator Obama was born in Hawaii two years after Hawaii became a
state. While I do not support his candidacy for President, I have not
seen evidence that cause me to question his eligibility to run. If valid,
I am confidant these questions would have been raised by Senator Clinton’s
campaign, or one of the several other candidates during the Democratic
primary.

Thank you again for writing.

With my regards and best wishes, I remain

Sincerely,
John L. Mica
Member of Congress”

First of all, in fairness to Representative Mica, his letter was written
August 18, 2008 and he does not provide a litany of falsehoods. If he cares
to respond and look at the evidence, his errors can be forgiven.

Representative John Mica stated:

“Generally they are considered to be hoaxes and without merit.”

Mr. Mica, did you do any research on the eligibility issues surrounding
Obama?

Representative Mica then stated:

As you may know, Senator Obama was born in Hawaii two years after Hawaii
became a state.”

Mr. Mica, how would you or anyone else know for a fact that Obama was born
in Hawaii? Obama has never produced a birth certificate despite many
attempts in court to force him to. Obama, instead has spent hundreds of
thousands of dollars and employed numerous attorneys to avoid proving
eligibility. Furthermore, being born in Hawaii is not sufficient to make
Obama a natural born citizen. If it did, then British citizens vacationing
in Hawaii and delivering a child would enable that British child to be
president.

Why Obama is not eligible

What Hawaii Health Official really said

Latest information on court cases

From the Alan Keyes lawsuit

“A press release was issued on October 31, 2008, by the Hawaii Department
of Health by its Director, Dr. Chiyome Fukino. Dr. Fukino said that she
had “personally seen and verified that the Hawaii State Department of
Health has Senator Obama’s original birth certificate on record in
accordance with state policies and procedures.” That statement failed to
resolve any of the questions being raised by litigation and press accounts.
Being “on record” could mean either that its contents are in the computer
database of the department or there is an actual “vault” original.”

“Further, the report does not say whether the birth certificate in the
“record” is a Certificate of Live Birth or a Certificate of Hawaiian Birth.
In Hawaii, a Certificate of Live Birth resulting from hospital documentation,
including a signature of an attending physician, is different from a
Certificate of Hawaiian Birth. For births prior to 1972, a Certificate of
Hawaiian Birth was the result of the uncorroborated testimony of one witness
and was not generated by a hospital. Such a Certificate could be obtained up
to one year from the date of the child’s birth. For that reason, its value
as prima facie evidence is limited and could be overcome if any of the
allegations of substantial evidence of birth outside Hawaii can be obtained.
The vault (long Version) birth certificate, per Hawaiian Statute 883.176
allows the birth in another State or another country to be registered in
Hawaii. Box 7C of the vault Certificate of Live Birth contains a question,
whether the birth was in Hawaii or another State or Country. Therefore,
the only way to verify the exact location of birth is to review a certified
copy or the original vault Certificate of Live Birth and compare the name of
the hospital and the name and the signature of the doctor against the
birthing records on file at the hospital noted on the Certificate of the
Live Birth.”

US Representative Sue Myrick, United States Congressman, NC Representative , US Constitution, Congress, Charlotte office, North Carolina constituents, The WHY initiative, Restore the Constitutional Republic, Update, February 13, 2009

February 13, 2009

I called the Charlotte NC office of Representative Sue Myrick
today, February 13, 2009. I decided to call the Charlotte
office after contacting the Washington DC office on February
5, 2009 and sending an email to Sue Myrick. I have received
no response. I was prompted to contact Sue Myrick’s office
after the absurd response that a commenter on my blog
received from Andy Polk, an aide of hers. I called this
morning to give Sue Myrick another chance. It appears that
a lot of the problems the public is having in getting
straight answers from congressmen is the filtering of
information being done by their aides. Since I had written
several articles about Sue Myrick as part of the “WHY”
Initiative I wanted to be fair to her. One of these articles
has received approx 2000 views in less than 24 hours.

A nice lady answered the phone. I gave her a brief overview
of why I called. She wanted to pass me on to a press
secretary and I declined. I simply, in fairness, wanted to
inform them of our efforts and resolve to get answers.
I asked that the lady pass this information on to Sue
Myrick.

Obviously Sue Myrick and most people in Congress are very
busy and get many requests. I understand that. I, so far,
have no reason to dislike Sue Myrick. I have heard good
things about her. However, to my knowledge, she has
expressed no interest in the eligibility issues surrounding
Obama. I have no record of her standing up in Congress
and challenging his eligibility or asking questions. If
Andy Polk speaks for her, then we have a problem.

“Ignorance is not bliss.”

Representative Sue Myrick and all members of Congress. We
are going to hold you accountable to the US Constitution
and the American people.

WHY did you believe Obama was eligible?

US Representative Sue Myrick, United States Congressman, NC Representative , US Constitution, Congress, North Carolina constituents, The WHY initiative. Restore the Constitutional Republic

February 12, 2009

From the Citizen Wells blog February 12, 2009, regarding the WHY
Initiative and attempts to get answers from NC Representative
Sue Myrick:

“We are moving ahead with the “WHY” initiative to hold Congress
accountable now and moving forward. Dean Haskins has set up
Restore the Constitutional Republic under a .com for organizational
purposes and we are finalizing plans to challenge congressmen across
the nation now and henceforth. Dean Haskins, the Citizen Wells blog,
other internet websites, attorneys, businessmen, the military and
millions of Americans are united to uphold and defend the US
Constitution. We are determined to get answers from congressmen.

Why did they believe that Obama is eligible?

Why did no member of Congress challenge the Electoral votes?

Despite our many concerns about policies and actions such as the
so called stimulus bill, we are determined to uphold the US
Constitution and make Congress accountable. This effort will move
forward through the 2010 elections.

Millions of Americans were stunned as every institution in this
nation connected with the 2008 election, ignored the US
Constitution and pleas from masses of the public to vet Senator
Obama. Congressmen ignored their constituents, as if part of
some conspiracy to ensure that Obama got elected.

So we are asking WHY.
The obvious red flag that most people get, the one I am certain a
5th grader could understand is, if Obama was eligible, why did
Obama employ an army of attorneys and spend great sums of money
beginning with Philip Berg’s lawsuit in August 21, 2008, to avoid
proving his eligibility. All Obama had to do is what John McCain
did, provide Congress with a vault copy of his birth certificate,
i.e., a real birth certificate, not a record of a birth certificate
like Obama has tried to do.

If you’re not as smart as a fifth grader then consider the following:

Obama traveled to Pakistan in 1981 on an Indonesian passport.

Obama’s father was Kenyan, under British rule.

Obama became an Indonesian citizen.

There is no legal proof that Obama was born in Hawaii.

If Obama was born in Kenya, his mother did not meet the eligibility
requirements for Obama to be a natural born citizen.

Consider this letter from a Brigadier General:

 
Charles E. Jones
Brigadier General US Air Force, Retired
Lifetime subject to recall for active duty
Recipient of the Distinguished Service Medal (AF)
02.04.09

“We the People of the United States of America” are entitled to know
the legal qualifications of the President and Commander in Chief. 
For the better good and National Security of “We the People of the
United States” and for Absolute Command of the Military Forces of the
United States, I whole heartedly support the efforts of Dr. Orly Taitz,
ESQ for taking legal action to determine whether or not Barack Hussein
 Obama, aka Barry Soetoro, Citizen of Indonesia and possibly citizen
of Kenya, is eligible to become President of the United States and
Commander in Chief of the United States Armed Forces.

From Sue Myrick’s office.
Polk, Andy :Andy.Polk@mail.house.gov

“ohhh- I understand it correctly based on US Supreme Court cases interpreting
what “natural born citizen” Constitutionally means.  Had he not met the
definition, Chief Justice Roberts, the worlds leading Constitutional scholar,
would not have sworn him in because he would have violated his duty to uphold
the Constitution.  You can argue with me all you want on this issue, but I can
do nothing for you on this point.  The only thing you can do, if you feel so
strongly about Obama not being a citizen, is file a lawsuit in federal court.”

I recently called Sue Myrick’s office and after a conversation with her staff,
was informed that I should email her. Here is the email that was sent on
February 5, 2009:

“I am Mr. Wells of the Citizen Wells Blog, based out of NC. I have done extensive
research and covered the 2008 election process. I am also part of a group that is
evolving to uphold and save the US Constitution and rule of law.
I am in the forefront of a group of people that will be holding Congress accountable
now and through the 2010 election and beyond.
 
I have been in touch with Philip J berg and his assistant, Dr. Orly Taitz and her assistant,
Cort Wrotnowski, Lt Cols in the AF, business people and regular Americans that are
deeply concerned and care about this country. We are not going away. Our resolve is
strengthening.
 
I do not know where you obtained your information regarding the eligibility of Obama to
be president. There was an Orwellian like effort by the MSM and Obama camp to distort
the truth. If Obama had been eligible, he would not have employed an army of attornies
and spents thousands of dollars to avoid presenting his proof. McCain in contrast
provided a vault version of his birth certificate to Congress.
 
I was asked to do research for a documentary on Obama and the provision for natural
born citizen in the US Constitution. This was specifically done to present to Ron Paul.
Congressmen were notified prior to the election of the eligibility cloud surrounding
Obama. I posted some of the ludicrous responses that were received from some
senators and representatives in a US Constitution Hall of Shame on my blog.
I am not a conspiracy theorist. However, we are going to find out why no member
of congress took this issue seriously, why they ignored the people that put them
in office and why no one spoke up in Congress when the Electoral College votes
were certified.
 
Our team is contacting a senator from the southeast and we hope to meet with him
soon. We are going to get some straight answers and will do whatever is necessary
under the law to do so. I decided to write you (I just called your office) because
you represent my district and you seem to be a straight shooter.
 
This initiative is designed to get some straight answers now, but will build into
a general effort to hold congress accountable and remove from office in 2010
those politicians that have a selfish, irresponsible agenda.
 

I deeply care about this country.
 
Respectfully,
 
Mr. Wells
 
http://citizenwells.wordpress.com/
I have received no response from Sue Myrick. I have recently
been trying to locate someone that knows her. It is a shame
isn’t it. It is so difficult to get the attention of our
congressmen. Well guess what. We are not going to stop until
we get their attention and that includes voting them out of
office if they continue to fail us. In fairness to Sue Myrick,
so far we have only gotten responses from her staff. Sooner
or later she will see our requests and sooner or later she
will have to respond.

“Our Constitution is in actual operation; everything appears
to promise that it will last; but nothing in this world is
certain but death and taxes.”

“We must, indeed, all hang together, or most assuredly we
shall all hang separately.”

Benjamin Franklin

 

Congress Watch is an effort evolving out of the turmoil and
confusion of the 2008 Presidential Election. Millions of
Americans watched in horror as their institutions failed them.
Despite the giant efforts of thousands of concerned Americans
to prevent an ineligible candidate from becoming president,
all levels of government, as if united in a huge conspiracy
to elect Obama, ignored hard evidence that Obaba was not
qualified and thumbed their collective noses at the American
public. It was bad enough that no one in government took
seriously the vetting of Obama, but to deny the US Constituion
was the more grievous sin.

Congress Watch is not a site of one or a few people but is designed
to be a collection point for information spread across the
internet. The goal is simple, to make certain that Congress,
Senators and Representatives are accountable to the US Constitution
and the American People. One of the first initiatives is referred
to as the WHY initiative. WHY did congressmen believe that Obama
was eligible and WHY did no member of Congress challenge the
Electoral College votes in Congress. Dr. Orly Taitz has ongoing
lawsuit efforts as well as efforts to challenge congressmen. We
plan to work with her. Many other citizens and internet sites will
be welcome here as we unite for the common goal of upholding the
US Constitution. We will hold them accountable and as we approach
the 2010 election year, those that ignore the Constitution and
American people will receive their just rewards.

Aside from collecting dialogue from congressmen, we will serve as
a repository for letters, comments and initiatives involving the
US Military. Those that have been in the military take their oaths
very seriously and we are depending on them, as we always have,
to help lead us out of this mess. Of course, this effort will require
the cooperation of people all across this country.

Congress Watch belongs to the American People. Please do your part to
help.

God Bless you and God Bless America
