The Oath of the President of the United States

US Constitution, Article II, Section 1

Before he enter on the execution of his office, he shall take the following oath or affirmation: "I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States."

The case could be made that Obama has violated the oath of the office of the Presidency of the United States in not closing the borders at the threat of a global pandemic of the Mexican flu, the violations of the U.S. Constitution in the CIFTA, and his refusal to clarify the circumstances of his birth. Think about it.

Amendment XIV
Section 1.

All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

A writ of coram nobis is an order by an appeals court to a lower court to consider facts not on the trial record which might have changed the outcome of the lower court case if known at the time of trial. Coram nobis is a Latin term meaning the "error before us."

In deciding whether to grant the writ, courts have used a three-part test: a petitioner must

1. explain her failure to seek relief from judgment earlier,

2. demonstrate continuing collateral consequences from the conviction, and

3. prove that the error is fundamental to the validity of the judgment.

An example of when it might be used includes prosecutorial misconduct hiding exculpatory evidence from the defendant. A writ of coram nobis is issued once the petitioner is no longer in custody. Its legal effect is to vacate the underlying conviction. A petition for a writ of error coram nobis is brought to the court that convicted and sentenced the defendant.

Coram nobis is limited to cases in which a "fundamental error" or "manifest injustice" has been committed. A high burden of proof is required. It cannot be used to reopen and reargue points of law the courts have decided, but only to raise errors of fact that were knowingly withheld by the prosecutor from judges and defendants. A writ of error coram nobis is an extraordinarily rare remedy, known more for its denial than its approval. It is distinguished from a writ of error coram vobis which brings before the court certain mistakes of fact not put in issue or passed upon,such as the death of a party, coverture, infancy, error in process, or mistake of the clerk.

Although the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure expressly abolished the use of coram nobis in civil cases in the United States, see Fed. R. Crim. P. 60(b), the issue of the writ's availability to correct fundamental errors in criminal cases remained uncertain for many years. In United States v. Morgan, the Supreme Court resolved this question, holding that coram nobis was still available in federal court for criminal cases. See 346 U.S. 502, 512 (1954).


Case from 1886. In the Supreme Courts decision included interpretations of a citizens or a militas right to bear arms and how a state violates the 2nd and 14th Amendments.

Columbia v. Heller

U.S. Constitution: Second Amendment

Second Amendment - Bearing Arms

Amendment Text | Annotations

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.


Prior to the Supreme Court's 2008 decision in District of Columbia v. Heller,1 the courts had yet to definitively state what right the Second Amendment protected. The opposing theories, perhaps oversimplified, were (1) an "individual rights" approach, whereby the Amendment protected individuals' rights to firearm ownership, possession, and transportation; and (2) a "states' rights" approach, under which the Amendment only protected the right to keep and bear arms in connection with organized state militia units.2 Moreover, it was generally believed that the Amendment was only a bar to federal action, not to state or municipal restraints.3

However, the Supreme Court has now definitively held that the Second Amendment protects an individual's right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in a militia, and to use that weapon for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home. Moreover, this right applies not just to the federal government, but to states and municipalities as well.

In Heller, the Court held that (1) the District of Columbia's total ban on handgun possession in the home amounted to a prohibition on an entire class of "arms" that Americans overwhelmingly chose for the lawful purpose of self-defense, and thus violated the Second Amendment; and (2) the District's requirement that any lawful firearm in the home be disassembled or bound by a trigger lock also violated the Second Amendment, because the law made it impossible for citizens to use arms for the core lawful purpose of self-defense.

The Court reasoned that the Amendment's prefatory clause, i.e., "[a] well regulated

Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State," announced the Amendment's purpose, but did not limit or expand the scope of the operative clause, i.e., "the

right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." Moreover, the prefatory clause's history comported with the Court's interpretation, because the prefatory clause stemmed from the Anti-Federalists' concern that the federal government would disarm the people in order to disable the citizens' militia, enabling a politicized standing army or a select militia to rule.

Further, the Court distinguished United States v.Miller,4 in which the Court upheld a statute requiring registration under the National Firearms Act of sawed-off shotguns, on the ground that Miller limited the type of weapon to which the Second Amendment right applied to those in common use for lawful purposes.

In McDonald v. Chicago,5 the Court struck down laws enacted by Chicago and the village of Oak Park effectively banning handgun possession by almost all private citizens, holding that the Fourteenth Amendment incorporated the Second Amendment right, recognized in Heller, to keep and bear arms for the purpose of self-defense.

The Court reasoned that this right is fundamental to the nation's scheme of ordered liberty, given that self-defense was a basic right recognized by many legal systems from ancient times to the present, and Heller held that individual self-defense was "the central component" of the Second Amendment right. Moreover, a survey of the contemporaneous history also demonstrated clearly that the Fourteenth Amendment's Framers and ratifiers counted the right to keep and bear arms among those fundamental rights necessary to the Nation's system of ordered liberty.

Crowds gather in NYC, DC after bin Laden killed

Crowds gather in NYC, DC after bin Laden killed


Sorry to burst anyone's bubble...this is not a factual report. ORF is simply sharing another view of the Obama administration announcing the death of Osama Bin Laden.

This morning, like many other Americans, ORF staff were diligently listening to several media sources giving accounts of or discussing the announced death of Osama Bin Laden. The announcement was made public last night.

As this morning's radio talk shows focused on the meaning of Osama's death to Americans and the President...a disturbing call came into the Peter Boyles show...Denver...KHOW 630AM.

The caller alleges the gatherings of Americans outside the White House and at Ground Zero were SEIU members (Service Employees International Union). The caller alleges the SEIU members were gathered at near the White House and Ground Zero when the public
announcement of Osama's death was made. Jubilant celebrations by patriotic Americans at these two locations were immediate.

ORF asks: what political expediency would President Obama garner from the death of Osama? At a time when the birth certificate issue is being hotly debated, the South has been ravaged by tornadoes, fires plague the West, and the 2012 Presidential elections are looming
in the future...who would profit from the death of Osama Bin Laden? Has Osama been dead for some time...killed in the past and the fact with held from Americans?

If the threat of retaliation from Al Queda is deemed a national security risk, what extreme measures would this President impose on Americans to protect us from terrorists?

Again...ORF is simply asking the questions after hearing the public discourse.

Earth Hour: A Dissent

Ross McKitrick

In 2009 I was asked by a journalist for my thoughts on the importance of Earth Hour. Here
is my response.

I abhor Earth Hour. Abundant, cheap electricity has been the greatest source of human
liberation in the 20th century. Every material social advance in the 20th century depended
on the proliferation of inexpensive and reliable electricity. Giving women the freedom to
work outside the home depended on the availability of electrical appliances that free up time
from domestic chores. Getting children out of menial labour and into schools depended on
the same thing, as well as the ability to provide safe indoor lighting for reading.
Development and provision of modern health care without electricity is absolutely
impossible. The expansion of our food supply, and the promotion of hygiene and nutrition,
depended on being able to irrigate fields, cook and refrigerate foods, and have a steady
indoor supply of hot water. Many of the world's poor suffer brutal environmental conditions
in their own homes because of the necessity of cooking over indoor fires that burn twigs and
dung. This causes local deforestation and the proliferation of smoke- and parasite-related
lung diseases. Anyone who wants to see local conditions improve in the third world should
realize the importance of access to cheap electricity from fossil-fuel based power generating
stations. After all, that's how the west developed.

The whole mentality around Earth Hour demonizes electricity. I cannot do that, instead I
celebrate it and all that it has provided for humanity. Earth Hour celebrates ignorance,
poverty and backwardness. By repudiating the greatest engine of liberation it becomes an
hour devoted to anti-humanism. It encourages the sanctimonious gesture of turning off
trivial appliances for a trivial amount of time, in deference to some ill-defined abstraction
called “the Earth,” all the while hypocritically retaining the real benefits of continuous,
reliable electricity. People who see virtue in doing without electricity should shut off their
fridge, stove, microwave, computer, water heater, lights, TV and all other appliances for a
month, not an hour. And pop down to the cardiac unit at the hospital and shut the power off
there too.

I don't want to go back to nature. Travel to a zone hit by earthquakes, floods and hurricanes
to see what it’s like to go back to nature. For humans, living in "nature" meant a short life
span marked by violence, disease and ignorance. People who work for the end of poverty
and relief from disease are fighting against nature. I hope they leave their lights on.
Here in Ontario, through the use of pollution control technology and advanced engineering,
our air quality has dramatically improved since the 1960s, despite the expansion of industry
and the power supply. If, after all this, we are going to take the view that the remaining air
emissions outweigh all the benefits of electricity, and that we ought to be shamed into
sitting in darkness for an hour, like naughty children who have been caught doing
something bad, then we are setting up unspoiled nature as an absolute, transcendent ideal
that obliterates all other ethical and humane obligations. No thanks. I like visiting nature
but I don't want to live there, and I refuse to accept the idea that civilization with all its
tradeoffs is something to be ashamed of.

From the article:

When we switch off the electricity, many of us turn to candlelight. This seems natural and environmentally friendly, but unfortunately candles are almost 100 times less efficient than incandescent light bulbs, and more than 300 times less efficient than fluorescent lights. Using one candle for each extinguished bulb cancels the CO2 reduction; two candles emit more CO2.

The park would be nearly twice the size of Maine's Acadia National Park.

Congress introduces legislation to make American Community Survey optional.

From the HSLDA article:

On March 3, 2011, Congressman Ted Poe (TX) introduced H.R. 931 to the House of Representatives. H.R. 931 would allow most of the questions on the American Community Survey to be optional. If H.R. 931 became law, the only questions that would be mandatory would be questions on your name, date of response, contact information, and number of people living at the same address (similar to the information asked on the original census in 1790).

HSLDA has long been concerned about the level of personal information collected and the invasiveness of the American Community Survey. We are grateful to Congressman Poe for introducing H.R. 931 and giving the American people control of what personal information they share with the government.

Is Charlie Sheen going to run for governor in New Mexico? ORF hasn't heard he has any inkling of running for any office in New Mexico, but ORF thought we'd throw it out there.

What are his qualifications:

1. He doesn't live in New Mexico, yet he might want to be governor here. Worked for Hillary.
2. He's from Mars. Right away he's in with the Spaceport crowd.
3. He has tiger blood. Great, he could advocate for the re-introduction of tigers to New Mexico.
4. He appears to have a substance abuse problem. Who doesn't?

What would disqualify him from running for office in New Mexico?

All of the above.

Now, think of who else, besides an illegal visitor in this country simple looking for work, could use the information on this website. Someone like an Al Queda dude?


Most ORF readers have either read or heard, on talk radio, the NPR debacle concerning the NPR CEO and some other intellectual elite resigning, after being caught in an ACORN style sting. The NPR dude was caught on video with some guys posing as Muslim types, who wanted to give NPR $5 million.
The NPR guy was recorded talking smack about the Tea Party, Americans, Jews, and giving credence to Islam and Sharia law and wanted to give Sharia a voice in the U.S. Why the big stink?

History lesson...history you will never find in your kid's text book.

The Muslim Brotherhood, also called Muslim Brethren (Arabic: جمعية الأخوان المسلمون Jamiat al-Ikhwan al-muslimun, literally Society of Muslim Brothers) is an Islamic organization with a political approach to Islam. It was founded in 1928 by Hassan al-Banna in Egypt after the collapse of the Ottoman Empire.

The Muslim Brotherhood opposes secular tendencies of Islamic nations and wants return to the precepts of the Qur'an, and rejection of Western influences. They also reject extreme Sufism. They organize events from prayer meetings to sport clubs for socializing.

The organization's motto is as follows: “Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. Qur'an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.”

An important aspect of the Muslim Brotherhood ideology is the sanctioning of jihad such as the 2004 fatwa issued by Sheikh Yousef Al-Qaradhawi making it a religious obligation of Muslims to abduct and kill U.S. citizens in Iraq.

The Muslim Brotherhood is working to spread its concepts and gain more followers. They work on the levels of school students, university students, inside mosques and at work. The tools they use are cassette tapes, booklets, camps for youth in schools and universities, and recently the Internet.

The Mufti and the Führer

By Mitchell Bard

In 1941, Haj Amin al-Husseini fled to Germany and met with Adolf Hitler, Heinrich Himmler, Joachim Von Ribbentrop and other Nazi leaders. He wanted to persuade them to extend the Nazis’ anti-Jewish program to the Arab world.

The Mufti sent Hitler 15 drafts of declarations he wanted Germany and Italy to make concerning the Middle East. One called on the two countries to declare the illegality of the Jewish home in Palestine. Furthermore, “they accord to Palestine and to other Arab countries the right to solve the problem of the Jewish elements in Palestine and other Arab countries, in accordance with the interest of the Arabs and, by the same method, that the question is now being settled in the Axis countries.”1

Juan Williams

FORMER NPR CEO Lilian Schiller fired black journalist/report from NPR because Williams expressed his personal view that he is uncomfortable when seeing someone dressed in Muslim garb in an airport. Schiller said something to the effect that Williams should discuss his problems with Muslims with his shrink. Go to the link below and see the video of Williams responding to the big stink in NPR. He nails it.

NPR was been revealed to be an elite white supremacist organization that is run by white libs who don't like Blacks, Jews or most of America. Would you condone your tax dollars going to fund a multi-million dollar Klan or Aryan organization? Probably not. Where is the outcry from the Southern Poverty Law Center, the Anti-Defamation League, and the entire main stream media on the revelation that NPR is more than willing to degrade Jews and Blacks and take money from an organization posing as an arm of the Muslim Brotherhood?

Gila Livestock Growers Association

PO Box 111

Winston NM 87943


772 words

On March 5 in Silver City New Mexico, a rally organized by the new group, Keep Our Forest Open drew over 700 people, both citizens and elected representatives from throughout the state to voice their opposition to planned road closures and limiting of camping and hunting opportunities on the Gila Forest.

Still, the mainstream media focused the majority of their efforts in covering the rally held the previous day at Gila Hike and Bike, a private business in Silver City. A rally to support of the plan to seriously limit access to the Gila National Forest. Attending that earlier support rally, were far less than a hundred people, even after counting game commissioner Dutch Salmon and at least two dogs.

Why is the press so determined to pursue the agenda of the Environmental movement? The public is often not given the full story on events due to this strong tendency to elevate the wishes of government agencies or the small but vociferous environmental community over the interest of the general public. Here is the story on the innocuously named, Travel management plan.

The USFS proposed action, alternative G, will drastically limit where people can drive in the Gila Forest, and worse, will eliminate 93 percent of the streamside dispersed camping opportunities. This “crowding” of campers and hunters into designated camping areas will contribute to erosion problems not currently caused by dispersed widespread camping. It will also severely limit options for those who want to experience a restful and quiet forest experience. This is not analyzed in the TMP draft document.

Limited camping areas will severely impact other legitimate multiple uses that are occurring simultaneously on the forest. For instance, having 8 camps in a canyon instead of the normal 1-2 will cause stress to livestock and wildlife from the larger human presence. This will move animals into more confined areas with less human presence. Possibly even into that 93 percent of stream sides where camping isn’t allowed. This domino affect will create difficulty keeping grazing utilization under required standards and would competition between livestock and wildlife and put both in closer proximity to predators at water sites.

There is no doubt, there will be less public access to the forest if this goes through. Every visitor to NFS lands needs motor transportation to pursue his/her activity. The number of visitors who absolutely wish to avoid all motorized activities is tiny, and that number is reflected in the small number of recorded Wilderness visits compared to general forest access visits. When supporters tell you this is a compromise what they really mean is, we have a ton of wilderness opportunities we currently do not use much, but we want more, because our moral value judgment is that vehicle access is bad, so you the public, should have less of it. That is what is important to those supporters that you the public have less every time, not that compromise and equity is reached.

It doesn’t help that the USFS has removed as a priority, road maintenance choosing to focus instead on wild-land fire fighting. Budgets are limited in a strained economy but with more uses removed, reduction in multiple use generated jobs and careers are creating less production revenue for the USFS. The answer to road maintenance is not shutting more uses down but opening more up. We need more timber production, more livestock production, more recreational and hunting access opportunities. That will put more money into the local economy and in turn, more into the coffers of the agencies.

The agency instead has placed itself above Congress by attempting to create more contiguous roadless areas. It is not the agency's job to eliminate and limit multiple uses from forested areas. It is congresses job. Wilderness areas were created through the Wilderness Act through the intent of congress.

The Gila has 700,000 acres of designated wilderness for those who wish to escape the sights and sounds of vehicle recreational access, or who wish to experience a primitive hunt. To attempt to use other laws such as NEPA to create more Wilderness or to establish de-facto wilderness as is occurring in this plan, violates the intent of congress. Congress never intended the USFS to expand and create wilderness through administrative procedure. The so called Travel Management Planning process is currently ongoing in all forested regions in the United States and each plan bears close scrutiny.

Multiple use is currently the USFS prime directive. Until Congress changes that, and declares that all NFS units should seek to

create roadless and Wilderness-like characteristics, the agency is bound by law to support diversity and multiple use, and the

production of goods and services for human use.
