Duty Honor Country Birth Certificate Obama West Point MacArthur

December 2, 2009

Barack Hussein Obama showed at Eisenhower Hall at West Point New York that he is no Douglas MacArthur.


Douglas MacArthur, the youngest of three sons, was born in Little Rock, Arkansas, in 1880, while his parents were stationed there.[5][6] His parents were Lieutenant General Arthur MacArthur, Jr. (at the time a captain), a recipient of the Medal of Honor, and Mary Pinkney Hardy MacArthur (nicknamed “Pinky”) of Norfolk, Virginia. Douglas MacArthur was the grandson of jurist and politician Arthur MacArthur, Sr., a Scottish immigrant. (The remainder of MacArthur’s ancestry was English.) He was baptized at Christ Episcopal Church in Little Rock on May 16, 1880. In his memoir, Reminiscences, MacArthur wrote that his first memory was the sound of the bugle, and that he had learned to “ride and shoot even before I could read or write—indeed, almost before I could walk and talk.”

MacArthur’s father was posted to San Antonio, Texas, in 1893. There, Douglas attended West Texas Military Academy (now known as T.M.I.: The Episcopal School of Texas), where he became an excellent student. After two rejections,[7] MacArthur entered the United States Military Academy at West Point in 1898. His mother also moved there to a hotel suite overlooking the grounds of the Academy.[8] (The story is that his mother would use a telescope to look over into his room to ensure that he was studying.) An outstanding cadet, he graduated first in his 93-man class in 1903. For his prowess in sports, military training, and academics he was awarded the coveted title of “First Captain Of The Corps Of Cadets.”[9] Upon graduation, MacArthur was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.


Obama can’t come up with a doctor signed hospital issued birth certificate.  Hawaii allowed his parents or grandparents to simply apply for and receive a birth certificate, regardless of where he was actually born.  We still don’t know where Obama was born.  We don’t know if he applied to college as a dual or multi-citizen.  Obama is a natural born Muslim.  He has said he would stand with the Muslim.  He has bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia and the Emperor of Japan.  Sort of like the opposite of General MacArthur.


General Westmoreland, General Groves, distinguished guests, and gentlemen of the Corps. As I was leaving the hotel this morning, a doorman asked me, “Where are you bound for, General?” and when I replied, “West Point,” he remarked, “Beautiful place, have you ever been there before?”

Has Obama ever been there before?

But this award is not intended primarily for a personality, but to symbolize a great moral code – the code of conduct and chivalry of those who guard this beloved land of culture and ancient descent.

Obama Hillary finger brings up short videos you can watch it.

Duty, Honor, Country: Those three hallowed words reverently dictate what you ought to be, what you can be, what you will be. They are your rallying points: to build courage when courage seems to fail; to regain faith when there seems to be little cause for faith; to create hope when hope becomes forlorn.

Those are words that prisoners of war in Vietnam were comforted by.  John McCain was such a prisoner and he got comfort from those words and this speech even if told to him by others in the camps.  The speech was given at West Point May 12, 1962.

Obama McCain finger.

The unbelievers will say they are but words, but a slogan, but a flamboyant phrase. Every pedant, every demagogue, every cynic, every hypocrite, every troublemaker, and, I am sorry to say, some others of an entirely different character, will try to downgrade them even to the extent of mockery and ridicule.

Obama Sarah Palin pig.   See the video.

As I listened to those songs of the glee club, in memory’s eye I could see those staggering columns of the First World War, bending under soggy packs on many a weary march, from dripping dusk to drizzling dawn, slogging ankle deep through mire of shell-pocked roads; to form grimly for the attack, blue-lipped, covered with sludge and mud, chilled by the wind and rain, driving home to their objective, and for many, to the judgment seat of God.

I do not know the dignity of their birth, but I do know the glory of their death. They died unquestioning, uncomplaining, with faith in their hearts, and on their lips the hope that we would go on to victory. Always for them: Duty, Honor, Country. Always their blood, and sweat, and tears, as they saw the way and the light.


Their resolute and determined defense, their swift and sure attack, their indomitable purpose, their complete and decisive victory – always victory, always through the bloody haze of their last reverberating shot, the vision of gaunt, ghastly men, reverently following your password of Duty, Honor, Country.

Reverend Wright God Damn America

Yours is the profession of arms, the will to win, the sure knowledge that in war there is no substitute for victory, that if you lose, the Nation will be destroyed, that the very obsession of your public service must be Duty, Honor, Country.

William Ayers Obama

The long gray line has never failed us. Were you to do so, a million ghosts in olive drab, in brown khaki, in blue and gray, would rise from their white crosses, thundering those magic words: Duty, Honor, Country.

Obama Recited the Muslim Call to Prayer to Kristof in Arabic.


The shadows are lengthening for me. The twilight is here. My days of old have vanished – tone and tints. They have gone glimmering through the dreams of things that were. Their memory is one of wondrous beauty, watered by tears and coaxed and caressed by the smiles of yesterday. I listen then, but with thirsty ear, for the witching melody of faint bugles blowing reveille, of far drums beating the long roll.

In my dreams I hear again the crash of guns, the rattle of musketry, the strange, mournful mutter of the battlefield. But in the evening of my memory I come back to West Point. Always there echoes and re-echoes: Duty, Honor, Country.

Obama saying Officer Crowley Stupid

Today marks my final roll call with you. But I want you to know that when I cross the river, my last conscious thoughts will be of the Corps, and the Corps, and the Corps.

I bid you farewell.

Obama bow King Saudi Arabia


Following lunch, General MacArthur gave that great Duty, Honor, Country speech. I’m sure you have heard it many times. He had no notes except one 3 x 5 card with one word on it—“doorman”—you have heard the joke. The occasional ‘klunk’ on the audio is the sound of the General’s ring hitting the wooden podium as he shifted his grip. When he finished he turned around and saluted his wife on the Poop Deck. At the end there were no dry eyes on my table.

    Obama has posted the official birth certificate of Hawaii. It is not a doctor-signed birth certificate, but no president has ever posted or shown his birth certificate before. The official birth certificate is sufficient to prove that he was born in Hawaii.

    As the Wall Street Journal says: “Obama has already provided a legal birth certificate demonstrating that he was born in Hawaii. No one has produced any serious evidence to the contrary. Absent such evidence, it is unreasonable to deny that Obama has met the burden of proof. We know that he was born in Honolulu as surely as we know that Bill Clinton was born in Hope, Ark., or George W. Bush in New Haven, Conn.”

    It is NOT true that Hawaii ever gives or gave out birth records stating they were born in Hawaii when they weren’t. The for he provided is the same birth record the State Dept. uses to approve US passports, which he has had since he was 6 and moved to Indonesia. There is NO evidence he was born elsewhere. Don’t yyou think if he had been born in another country there would be some record of his mother entering the country with a child? Do you realize that to get a US passport you have to present a legal birth record? He traveled the world in his 20s and as a US Senator(they need passports too) There is no such thing as a “natural born muslim”. He said he would stand by AMERICAN muslims, who are just as American as anyone else and deserve the same rights and protections as any other citizen. You aren’t born with a religion and he was not raised a muslim. In Indonesia, a country made up mostly of muslims, he attended both a muslim run school and a catholic run school. He was a 6 yr old CHILD when he went there. There is no evidence he ever practiced Islam as an adult. You may not like the minister of the church we do know he attended, but it is NOT a mosque. Besides, you are allowed to be muslim and American just as much as you are allowed to be Catholic and American so the point is moot aside from your bigotry.

    you’re an idiot.

  3. Old Atlantic Says:

    According to Islam, there is such a thing as natural born Muslim. So you are trying to impose your religion on them. How unliberal of you. Hawaii does allow birth certificates for those born abroad if their parents are sufficiently tied to Hawaii, and many other loopholes as well. The online b.c. can’t distinguish from these cases and therefore is inadequate. Obama likely applied to college as a dual citizen and so he forfeited natural born citizen status under Article II applying the original intent of no foreign or dual allegiance in the Commander in Chief, which is distinct from citizenship under the 14th Amendment. Search Vattel law of nations natural born citizen. Law of Nations is in the Constitution. Look it up.

  4. Old Atlantic Says:

    The reason for requiring the CINC to be natural born is to exclude people taught in other lands to pledge allegiance as a 6 year old child. Obama said the pledge to Indonesia in Indonesian in that school. His teacher said he was Indonesian.

    That alone disqualifies him under original intent. Any person who as a 6 year old child was taught in a foreign school that he was a citizen of that country and made to pledge their flag in a foreign tongue is thereby disqualified as natural born citizen for Article II purposes because original intent is to exclude anyone taught those feelings.

    Even if Obama was born in the US to 2 US citizen parents, being taught in a foreign school that he was a citizen of that country and to pledge their flag in their language disqualifies him for Article II purposes.

    The fairness is to us to protect us from those taught as 6 year old children to be loyal to another country. They can’t be CINC to protect us. That’s the original intent. The Constitution takes away the opportunity to be president to those taught they were loyal to a foreign country at any instant in their life, especially as a child in that foreign country.

  5. Old Atlantic Says:

    Obama manifests that when he doesn’t hold his hand over his heart for our pledge of allegiance as he has done on video more than once. Search Obama hand heart pledge allegiance. Shows the Founders had it right. What is taught at impressionable years is sufficient to disqualify from being CINC.

    Re: “The reason for requiring the CINC to be natural born…”

    Obama is natural born. He was born in Hawaii. The original meaning of Natural Born, which stems from the British common law and the laws in the American colonies, was simply “born in the country.” They used Natural Born in those days as we use “native born” today. As late as WWI, registrants for the draft were asked if they were citizens, and if they were, whether they were naturalized or Natural Born citizens.

    That is why that is why such prominent conservative Senators who are also lawyers as Orren Hatch and Lindsay Graham say that a Natural Born Citizen is simply one who was born in the USA:

    Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), said:

    “Every child born in the United States is a natural-born United States citizen except for the children of diplomats.” (December 11, 2008 letter to constituent)

    Senator Orrin G. Hatch (R-UT), said:

    “What is a natural born citizen? Clearly, someone born within the United States or one of its territories is a natural born citizen.” (Senate Judiciary Committee hearing hearing on OCTOBER 5, 2004)

  8. devin Says:

    The Law of Nations is IRRELEVENT. It is NOT in the constution. I dare you to prove that.

    Obama was born in Hawaii, he wasn’t obliged to any religion at birth. Just because SOME muslims might insist on such an idea(it is certainly not mainstream Islamic thinking) doesn’t mean it has any effect on Obama. Do you hear what you are saying? If you are born in America and one of your parents is muslim, you are held to THAT. That isn’t just ignorant and ridiculous it is the opposite of freedom as we understand it in America. Again, it simply doesn’t matter if he is muslim or not, there is NOTHING in the constitution that states you have to be in any religion to be president, that is your bigotry, period.

    The founders never said anything about ‘impressionable years’. Quit trying to make history on your side, it is absurd and insulting to the founders and our constitution.

    where do you get this idea he ever had to pledge allegiance in a school in Indonesia? You are making that up. Even IF he had, it would not change is citizenship status. You can NOT show on law in that regards. I can show you in the State dept. website however the ONLY way one can lose their citizen at birth status and that is a renounciation as an ADULT and even that is hard to do.

    There is NO laws in regards to the pledge of alligiance, that is another list of growing lies and absurdities you continue to post.

  9. devin Says:

    Hawaii has clearly said and it has never been shown that they do not put “born in city, Hawaii” if you were NOT born there. The only thing any of you nuts have shown is some chinese guy around the turn of the last century when Hawaii was a kingdom. Ridiculous.
