Tea Party calls conservative talk host Mark Levin “The Great Enabler” of Obama

Mark Levin

Mark Levin, The Great One?

By Dwight Kehoe, editor of TPath.org (Tea Party Advocate)
March 4, 2015

Several years ago Mark Levin, tagged by Hannity as The Great One, was offered and then accepted a full time gig doing a “conservative” talk show on the ABC radio network and affiliates.  He began that job not as the Great One, but as the Great Enabler.  He may have been told that it was not in his best interest nor the best interest of the network to discuss the eligibility of Barack Islam Obama relating to Article II or any aspect of his credentials which might actually prevent an illegal presidency.

Can we prove that he was given this conditional requirement?   No, but there are numerous instances from many ex-employees of the national radio and TV networks who have denied that order was ever given to them, until that is, they no longer worked for them.  These personalities fervently  refused to admit this ever happens.  One quite famous individual who also denied this fact while working for FOX has now admitted that he was prevented from speaking of several issues.

Even though this gentleman has not admitted that the “off limit subject” related to Obama, coincidentally enough this guy finds himself in the same sinking ship of fools as the Great Enabler. Both are now struggling to keep their integrity afloat, frantically bailing the birther issue and the messengers of it, overboard.

As the evidence against Obama becomes more pronounced, so too does the boiling anger of the Great Enabler which he directs at those who have been warning this country about Obama from the very beginning.  Those who have refused to be cowed, refused to forsake the Constitution and the rule of law have now become a bigger enemy to Mark Levin, than the illegal usurper.

We can be fair and suppose that when Levin agreed to ignore these issues, if he indeed did agree, that early on he was too busy impressing Hannity with his greatness to have had the time to look into the reality of the Obama saga.  Then, after having adopted and implemented such a nasty stance, it would have taken a true Great One to admit he was wrong.  But alas, the Great Enabler prevailed.

He understands now that his early acquiescence and his subsequent denial and cover up will implicate him, the self proclaimed constitutional scholar, as one of many selfish actors who have aided and abetted the destruction of our country. He smothers his personal guilt under the cover of belittlement of those who know he has failed us.

Once again this past week, after exiling a patriot form the call in phone line, the Great Enabler said this:

“You have to call this show about the birth certificate? Oh that’s been really effective. It has failed in every court. The birth certificate…with all the problems we have with this President, that’s all you have?”

That statement is of course as ignorant and deceptive as any Obama could have uttered.  Actually however, it was not a statement, but a series of questions.  He offered them rhetorically and with his typical sarcasm.  They must have been rhetorical because he hung up on the patriot before he could answer.

So, Mr. Levin, we would like to take a minute and answer them and as with many questions like that, yours have elicited several questions of their own.  No one will hang up on you before you can answer them.  It will take courage to honestly answer, so we hope you don’t mind if we don’t hold our breath while waiting.

First we answer your questions:

Q – “You have to call this show about the birth certificate?
A – Are you not the supposed Constitutional expert?  Who should I have called, Eric Holder?

Q – “That’s really been effective?”
A –  No it has not been effective because everyone in this country who could have made a difference and made it effective, put their careers ahead of the future of  America.

Q- “With all the problems we have with this (President/ Usurper), that’s all you have?
A – Real world to the Great Enabler,  if you and your ilk had of done your job, worked with the Birther Patriots, all of the problems this country has now, would never have been.  Barack Islam Obama would be back with his communist  gangster comrades in Chicago and not in Washington DC endangering the entire world.

Now a few questions of our own:

1.  Are you not aware that the Founding Fathers, after much discussion and communication between George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and John Jay, amended Article II to include the  “Natural Born Citizen” requirement?

2.  Have you not read any of the Federalist Papers and other writings where they stated many times that legal terms they use were based upon Vattell’s work, The Law of Nations?

3.  Did you never take the time to find out that, according to the Founders, Obama would not qualify as a Natural Born Citizen, regardless of where you “think” he was born?

4.  Did you ever consider looking at all those court cases you claim have been adjudicated in favor of Obama?  Did you not see that none of them ruled or affirmed Obama’s eligibility on fact, but supposition by the judges?

5.  Did you notice that all the cases otherwise ruled, that those bringing the case had no standing?  No standing is the answer all progressive judges use when they can’t produce evidence to support a decision they have been ordered to make.  No standing now  describes your standing with real constitutional conservatives.

6.  Did you happen to notice that there are errors on Obama’s birth certificate which can only be explained by it being a forgery?  The  youngsters who dominate the “basement underwear brigade”*, those who did the forging, made errors in terms and words which are common today, but never used back in 1961.

7. Did you happen to note when you reviewed Obama’s Birth Certificate that it states the name of the hospital as it is called today, even though it went by another name in 1961?

8. If you were running for President and needed to show a birth certificate, would you have one forged, which could possibly send you and the forgers to prison, if you had a real one?

There are Mr. Levin, many, many more questions we could ask you.  As with these, the answers will not sit well with the image of  The Great One.

Finally, if you are a Constitutional Scholar, then you are also a coward.  It’s impossible, with your record, to be one and not the other.

Investigative journalist says Obama joined a “gay club” at Occidental College

Charles C. Johnson is an investigative journalist and author (full bio below).

Last night, Johnson went on a Twitter binge, firing off a series of tweets about Obama, including one I’d never seen/heard of before — that Obama joined a homosexual students’ club when he entered Occidental College in southern California in 1979.

Charles Johnson tweet

In his other tweets, Johnson also claims the following:

  • He knows most of the classes Obama took in Occidental College and Columbia University.
  • He knows who “really funded” Obama’s purported biological father, Barack Hussein Obama Sr.’s education at the University of Hawaii.
  • Obama’s roommate at Columbia U., the Pakistani named Sohale Siddiqi, is “gay”.

  • Obama’s mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, lived in Pakistan in the 1980s.
  • The FBI had a file on Obama’s maternal grandfather, Stanley Armour Dunham.
  • There is no evidence Stanley Armour Dunham ever sold furniture in Hawaii although that’s what Obama claimed in his memoir, Dreams From My Father.

If Charles Johnson knows all the above about Obama, he should fess up instead of teasing us with these tweets!

Charles C. Johnson is the editor of GotNews.com and a contributor to the Daily Caller. Most recently, he is author of Why Coolidge Matters: Leadership Lessons from America’s Most Underrated President (Encounter Books). He has written for The Wall Street Journal, The New York Post, The Los Angeles Times, The New Criterion, The American Spectator, The Claremont Review of Books, City Journal, Reason.com, National Review Online, Tablet Magazine, The Weekly Standard, Powerline, and The New York Sun. His work has been featured on Real Clear Politics, the Drudge Report, Hotair.com, The Blaze, Breitbart.com, Rush Limbaugh’s Show, and the Wall Street Journal’s Best of the Web. He has been on Fox News with Megyn Kelly, Sean Hannity, and Lou Dobbs and numerous radio programs, including Larry Elder, John Batchelor, Rusty Humphries, Dennis Prager, Larry Elder, Mark Levin, and Larry Kudlow.

Dennis Prager, Michael Medved and the Gatekeepers of the Right

Dennis Prager

Do you ever listen to Dennis Prager?

I do. He’s a very wise man.

So is Michael Medved, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, Bill O’Reilly, Rush Limbaugh, and a host of other conservative talk show hosts. All of them very wise men. By listening to them speak, or by reading their books, you can learn a lot about morality, conservatism, liberalism, the right, the left, economics, etc., but the one thing you’ll never hear is the Truth.

As wise as all these men are, they choose to live in a sort of conspiratorial fantasy world. A world where if it’s not on the front page of the New York Times, or front and center on the NBC Nightly News, then it’s not real. It doesn’t exist.

This is ironic, because all of these men constantly rail about lies and distortions in the mainstream media. And yet they allow this same mainstream media, though proven by their own experience and observation to be untruthful and riddled with bias, to dictate their reality. Think about that for a moment. These are otherwise very intelligent men, who represent millions of other otherwise very intelligent men, who allow their lives to be controlled and manipulated by the very same media sources which they themselves know to be filled with disinformation and lies. It’s positively mind-boggling.

You can prove this to yourself very easily: call up one of their shows and mildly suggest that perhaps the truth about Sandy Hook or the Boston Marathon bombing are not quite what we’ve been told in the mainstream media. You’ll be insulted, slandered, and hung up on so fast it’ll make your head spin.

Forget facts. Never mind evidence. Those subjects are simply off-limits. So are the words “crisis actor”, aka Obama’s Connecticut social security numbers or homosexual past, satanism in the entertainment industry, the 1982 Consent Agreement between the RNC and DNC, any mention of the connection between vaccines and autism, and a whole host of other subjects.

Some people suggest that these men are professional disinformationists, or controlled opposition. I’m not sure about that. It’s hard for me to imagine Dennis Prager or Michael Medved as less than honorable men. And yet they are far too intelligent to be labeled useful idiots. Perhaps useful intelligentsia.

Rush Limbaugh is too damn smart not to know what’s really going on. Is he afraid of losing credibility if he speaks the Truth? Is that what they’re all afraid of?

These men have all built nice cushy careers peddling a form of mainstream conservatism. Is their fear of losing their prestige greater then their sense of duty to God and country? I wonder if they really believe in the fantasy world that they claim exists. It takes courage to face reality and look evil in the face. Most men are just too frightened to do that. For most people, the idea that evil exists and the possibility that the reality they’ve grown up with might be false is enough to set off alarm bells in most people’s heads and short circuit their brain.

MSM who never vetted Obama begins anal probe of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker

The liberal mainstream media, from the 2008 presidential campaign season to this day, refuse to look into and vet Obama’s background.

More than that, the media took their lesson from satanist Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals , especially No. 5 (Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon), mocking Americans who question The Annointed One’s birth eligibility to be president by giving them the derisive label of “birthers.”

ScottWalkerGov. Scott Walker

Now that Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is polling at the top of likely 2016 GOP presidential candidates nationwide and even in California, lo and behold, the MSM are giving him the anal probe, with the Washington Post’s David A. Fahrenthold leading the way.

Below are excerpts from Fahrenthold’s article for the Washington Post, Feb. 11, 2015, “As Scott Walker mulls White House bid, questions linger over college exit“.

David A. Fahrenthold

Scott Walker was gone. Dropped out. And in the spring of his senior year.

In 1990, that news stunned his friends at Marquette University. Walker, the campus’s suit-wearing, Reagan-loving politico — who enjoyed the place so much that he had run for student body president — had left without graduating.

To most of the Class of 1990 — and, later, to Wisconsin’s political establishment — Walker’s decision to quit college has been a lingering mystery. […]

Walker clearly liked college politics more than college itself. He had managed to line up 47 campaign endorsements, including ones from the ski team and the varsity chorus, but he had trouble showing up on time for French.

And, after four years, he had faltered on both fronts. He’d lost an ugly race for president. And he apparently had far too few credits to graduate.

[…] Walker’s own explanation has been short and simple. He got a job. He meant to go back. But he just never found the time.

Today, Walker, 47, is the governor of Wisconsin and a strong contender for the GOP’s 2016 presidential nomination. He is known for an astounding political hot streak: Since 1993, he has run 11 races for state legislature, county executive and governor — including a highly unusual recall election in 2012 — and he has won them all.

But before that streak came a string of defeats: the campus election, his failure to finish college and his first campaign for state office.

[…] Walker was not available to comment for this article, according to a spokeswoman for his new political committee, Our American Revival. He is visiting London this week, conducting a trade mission and bolstering his foreign policy credentials.

Blah, blah, blah.

Sandy Hook and Obama’s Connecticut Social Security number

One of the many curiosities about the sitting President of the United States is the fact that, unlike us, he has not one, but multiple Social Security numbers (SSN).

In 2010, two licensed private investigators, Neil Sankey and Susan Daniels, found that multiple SS numbers are associated with Barack Obama’s name. Daniels and Sankey put their findings in sworn affidavits. Dr. Orly Taitz further verified their information with a third source, a retired Department of Homeland Security senior investigator named John Sampson.

In May 2010, the mystery deepened when it was determined that the SSN Obama is currently using (042-68-4425) has a Connecticut prefix, 042, but Obama had never lived in nor had associations with the state of Connecticut. Obama has been using that 042 SS number since 1979 when he was 18 years old.

In an article for Western Journalism, Stephen Baldwin writes:

All told, there are 49 addresses and 16 different Social Security numbers listed for a person whose name is spelled “Barack Obama.” […] the one Social Security number Obama most frequently used, the one beginning with 042, is a number issued in Connecticut sometime during 1976-1977, yet there is no record of Obama ever living or working in Connecticut. Indeed, during this time period Obama would have been 15-16 years old and living in Hawaii at the time.

In late February 2011, the mystery further deepened when retired US Air Force Col. Gregory Hollister, the litigant in an Obama eligibility lawsuit, conducted a search for Obama’s Connecticut SSN in the Social Security Number Verification System used by small businesses to verify employment eligibility. The results came back as:

Failed: SSN not in file (never issued)

To the question of why Obama obtained a Connecticut-issued SSN instead of one by Hawaii, Joel Gilbert, maker of the documentary Dreams from My Real Father, has a plausible explanation: Obama’s peculiar Connecticut-issued SSN is related to the question of Obama’s birth certificate.

At the inception of the program, all SSNs were assigned and cards issued based solely on information provided by the applicant. However, in the 1970s, Social Security Administration began requiring proof of age, identity, and citizenship. In 1977, lacking a valid birth certificate, Obama was forced to buy a SS number so he could get his first job at a Honolulu Baskin Robbins. Gilbert surmises that Obama was sold an SSN that was Connecticut-based so it couldn’t be traced back to the Hawaii SS office. (See “Why Obama has a Connecticut Social Security no.”)

It goes without saying that it is a crime to use a Social Security number that isn’t yours. It is also a fact that once the Social Security Administration issued a SSN, even after the recipient died, SSA will never reissue that number to another person. There is one Numident record for each SSN ever assigned. A numident is the social security number itself, which is only assigned once and is never used again unless it is stolen.

So who was the original owner of Obama’s Connecticut-issued Social Security number?

In May 2011, blogger The Obama Hustle conducted a database pull for SSN 042-68-4425 and got the names of Harrison J. Bounel and Barack Obama (see below), indicating that one SSN was being used by both men.

Search results on SSN 042

Since Obama uses Harrison Bounel’s SSN, a search for the relatives of Harrison Bounel shows Michelle Obama as Bounel’s spouse (see below).

Michele as Bounel's spouse

So who is/was Harrison J. Bounel?

Leslie Bishop, a genealogy expert with over 25 years of experience, found a 1940 Census document showing a Harry Bounel, age 50, residing in Bronx, NY, which would make 1890 Bounel’s birth year. Harry Bounel’s listing is on line 48.

1940 census

closeup of 1940 Census

In September 2012, Leslie Bishop sent a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to the Social Security Administration for information on a Harry Bounel with the SSN 042-68-4425. Below is the letter she received (you can also see the letter on Scribd):

Letter from SS re. Harrison Bounel

In the letter dated November 16, 2012, Dawn S. Wiggins, Freedom of Information Officer at the Social Security Administration, wrote that in spite of Leslie Bishop’s FOIA request, her request is declined because “disclosing this information would be a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.” Mind you, in 2012 Harrison Bounel would have to be 120 years old, which means he had long died. But SS Administration nevertheless claims revealing information about his SS number would be an “invasion” of the dead man’s privacy.

Bishop stated that Social Security Administration “acknowledged my request for THAT numident and denied my request. In other words, that record exists and since there is only one Numident per SS# and that Numident for Harry Bounel with SS# 042-68-4425 apparently exists, then its not possible that O is using that number legally and it is apparent that Bounel is the original holder of that number.” (Source: The Obama Hustle)

Dr. Orly Taitz writes on Jan. 18, 2013:

According to 1940 census Harry Bounel was born in Russia in 1890. This is the date of birth on some of Lexis records associated with the Social Security number 042-68-4425…. Also, we had some records showing Harry Bounel residing with Robinson family in CT in 1910.

By “Robinson family,” Dr. Taitz means Michelle Obama’s family, the Robinsons (Michelle’s maiden name is Michelle Robinson). Taitz continues:

Michele Robinson Obama’s great grand mother Rose Ella Cohen, the name strikes me as a name of a Jewish woman from Russia…. It actually was not uncommon in those days for Jewish immigrant women from Russia to marry African American man, these Jewish women were not raised with any prejudice against African American men and also were persecuted.  I want to know, if Harry Bounel was related to her. He was born in 1890. She was born in 1893-1896. Very close in age, he could be her cousin. From what I understand Harry Bounel never married. In this case the only family, who would be his next of kin,  who would  be Robinson family.

Another weird coincidense. We see Bounel residing in CT in 1910. The Social Security [number] was issued in 1977 in CT. He was 87 at that time. There was a hospital next to Newton [sic]. It was a Newtown psychiatric hospital, where some elderly without family resided their last days. The hospital later was renamed to Fairfield state hospital. This is where the bodies of the Sandy Hook victims were taken for autopsy.

Dr. Taitz received the letter below from a reader:

I’m in my 60’s and grew up in Bridgeport CT until 1961. When I was a kid in the 50’s, we used to joke that if you’re bad you’ll be sent to the “Newtown nut house”, a psychiatric hospital in Newtown that was just next to Danbury. […] You had surmised that the identity [Obama’s Connecticut SSN] was taken from someone at a local Danbury NURSING HOME. The official name of the “Newtown nut house” was the FAIRFIELD STATE HOSPITAL. (renamed Fairfield Hills Hospital). Mentally ill patients who had died were buried on site.

Dr. Taitz found that in 1976-1977, when new SSN laws were adopted, elderly individuals like Harrison Bounel needed to get a SSN in order to get Medicare benefits. “When people were elderly or patients in the psychiatric hospital, the applications were filled out by the hospital employees,” that is, personnel at Fairfield State Hospital probably helped Bounel to fill out his application for a SSN.

According to Wikipedia, Michele Obama’s great great grandfather Jim Robinson’s second wife was Rose Ella Cohen.

A sharp-eyed reader of Taitz’s blog named Marshman noted that in the 1940 Census, right beneath the entry for Harry Bounel was Sam Cohen (line 49), which meant the two men lived next door. Bounel was identified as a “lodger” while Cohen was a “head” of household. Was Rose Ella Cohen a daughter of Sam Cohen?

closeup of 1940 Census

There you have it:

The original owner of Obama’s stolen Connecticut-issued Social Security number was Harrison J. Bounel, an immigrant from Russia who was born in 1890, who seemed to have had some connection with a Jewish woman named Rose Ella Cohen, who was the second wife of the great great grandfather of Michelle Obama. This same Bounel, whose Social Security number is one of Barack Obama’s many SSNs, was institutionalized in and probably died in the Fairfield State Hospital, a now-abandoned psychiatric hospital in Newtown, Connecticut which was closed down in 1995. The same Newtown, CT, where on Dec. 14, 2012, an alleged lone gunman named Adam Lanza allegedly shot to death 20 children and 6 adults in the Sandy Hook Elementary School — a massacre that every available evidence and sound reasoning point to it being a gigantic hoax. (See our “Sandy Hook Massacre” page for links to all the posts we’ve published on this hoax.)

What coincidences!!!

Here are 2 pictures of Fairfield State Psychiatric Hospital taken by citizen journalist “Barry” in his recent visit to Newtown. Barry said Newtown has a spooky ghost-town quality, with many abandoned buildings like Fairfield. Read his account here.

Fairfield State Psychiatric Hospital2Fairfield State Psychiatric Hospital

The weirdness doesn’t end. Stephen Baldwin writes:

Nevertheless, all this mystery surrounding Obama appears to be a generational thing. Researchers have discovered nearly a dozen aliases, at least two different Social Security numbers, and upwards of over 99 separate addresses for [Stanley] Ann Dunham, his mother. […]

The lack of documents regarding Obama also extends to his mother and to his [maternal] grandparents [Stanley and Madelyn Dunham]. Indeed, researchers have been unable to find marriage licenses for his mother’s two marriages, assuming she was ever legally married. Ditto goes for the marriage license for Ann’s parents. They cannot find birth certificates for her, her parents, or for even for her grandparents. Even more so, despite Obama’s boast of his grandfather’s military service, there’s no record of that either. For reasons no one knows, much of Obama’s life, his mother’s life and his grandparent’s life has been erased from the records as if they never existed.

Why Do Adults Believe In Fairy Tales?

What do the following all have in common:

Global warming.

The Boston Marathon terrorist bombing.

The Sandy Hook shooting.

An epidemic of rape and sexual assault on college campuses.

The legitimacy of aka Obama’s birth certificate and presidency.

The solvency of the US economy and the authority of the Federal Reserve.

The theory of evolution.

Answer: they are all fairy tales. Fairy tales concocted by elements of our own government and perpetuated with the full cooperation of mainstream media.

There is no global warming. If anything, we have a mild case of global cooling.

There was no terrorist bombing at the Boston Marathon.

There was no school shooting at Sandy Hook.

There is no epidemic of rape on college campuses.

Aka Obama’s birth certificate is a proven fraud and he has no legitimacy to the office he holds.

The US economy is tanking by the minute and the Federal Reserve, which is neither federal, nor holds any reserves, does not have the authority to print currency.

The theory of evolution is just that – a theory. There is no evidence to support it, and if it really were true, we would have a fossil record showing distinct evolutionary changes from one species to the next. Such a fossil record does not exist.

And yet, if you stopped 100 random Americans on the street and asked them about the above topics, I’m willing to bet that over 95% of them would say that they believe the official stories regarding these same topics. Why is that?

Why do adults believe in lies, false evidence, and fairy tales?

I have several theories. The first is the power of criticism. It’s said that the number one fear most people have is the fear of public speaking. What that fear really indicates is a fear of public criticism. A fear of being laughed at, particularly on a public stage. Today we are told that anything outside of the “official” story on any topic is delusional thinking. Those who dare to question the official story, as presented by the government and mainstream media, are labeled “conspiracy theorists.”

The term “conspiracy theory” seems to have sprung into being just after the JFK assassination in order to label anyone who questioned the official narrative of that event. Today, there are very few thinking Americans who believe in the “lone gunman” explanation of JFK’s murder. The only ones who do believe in the “lone gunman” theory are those who have never taken the time to study any of the evidence.

Thus, fear of ridicule, of being labeled a “conspiracy theorist,” seems to be at the root of why most Americans believe in fairy tales and lies. They either know the truth, but deny it, or they simply refuse to look at available evidence, because their fear of being criticized is stronger than their desire to embrace reality.

I believe another reason why people choose to believe in fairy tales and lies, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, is because it provides them with an excuse for cowardice. Think about it. If you choose to deny reality, your life is simple. You can go through life eating bad food, watching bed television, and believing everything the mainstream media tells you. Plus you save a ton of time by not educating yourself.

On the other hand, if you choose to learn the truth about the world, and suddenly come face-to-face with the enormous level of deceit, treachery and evil that such a study reveals, now you have a responsibility to do something about it. You can’t just bury your head in the sand. You can’t pretend any longer that the truth doesn’t exist. You now have a duty, both to God and to country, to act on what you know. And that is just too damn frightening for most Americans.

I think most men fall into the second reason for believing in fairy tales, and most women fall into the first. Being called a coward is one of the most insulting things a man can face. Most men will do anything to avoid it. That’s why they deny reality, to relieve themselves of whatever responsibility the truth would require of them. They no longer have to act on what they know, because they choose not to know it. Out of sight, out of mind.

Women seem to fear criticism more than men. (If you doubt this, ask yourself why most women are overly concerned with fashion and style.) For that reason, they tend to deny reality primarily for fear of seeming out of place and different. You can include in this group the gatekeepers of the right, those conservative talk show hosts and leaders who tow the party line on every topic, and refuse to even allow any discussion of the topics above.

In either case, the result is the same. Adults believing in fairy tales.
