Top Secret Clearance? : Obama Doesn't Qualify

As a presidential candidate, one would think that you should be able to gain the highest top secret clearance one could gain. This is a great problem that may plague Barack Obama.

Like everything that involves our government, there are procedures. One of those procedures, but not limited to, is being questioned before qualifying to fill out the standard background check form, SF86. One of those questions that would be asked to Obama would be:

"Have you ever sold any illegal drugs for profit?"

We know that Barack has openly admitted to using drugs, but we don't know if he has sold them. One could assume that during one's questionable teenage years, in which he claims to have had a tough life, he could have sold them. Which leads us to look at another question that would be brought to Obama. And that being:

"Have you used any illegal drugs (including anabolic steroids after February 27, 1991), other than marijuana, within the past ten years, or engaged in more than minimal experimentation in your lifetime?"

Once again, Barack's drug use comes into play, having admitted to more than just recreational use of more than marijuana. Having spent time explaining it in detail, in a book that he has written, saying that he has used marijuana and "maybe a little blow(cocaine)." Also saying that he didn't try heroin because he didn't like the person who was trying to sell it to him. That sounds like a little more than "minimal experimentation."

As stated earlier, these are just some of the questions asked before one even begins to fill out the standard form for FBI background checks, the SF86. If Obama was able to make it past the preliminary questions, take a look at some of the questions he would face in the SF86.

  • People who know you well
  • Your relatives and associates
  • Your foreign activities:
  • - Do you have any foreign property, business connections, or financial interests?
  • - Have you ever had any contact with a foreign government, its establishments (embassies or consulates), or its representatives, whether inside or outside the U.S., other than on official U.S. Government business?
  • - Explain if you answered yes to any of those questions.
  • Foreign countries you have visited
  • Your association record
  • - Have you ever been an officer or a member or made a contribution to an organization dedicated to the violent overthrow of the U.S. Government and which engages in illegal activities to that end, knowing that the organization engages in such activities with the specific intent to further such activities?
  • - Explain if you answered yes to that question.

While we don't know exactly how Barack Obama would answer these questions, we do know that they will be asked if he were to be elected President. When that time comes, one would ask if the FBI would be able to legitimately grant him the highest level of top secret needed to be President of the United States.

We have taken a small look at Barack and his history. We have taken a look at what it would take to achieve a top secret clearance granted by the FBI. We only hope that people will start to realize that Obama would bring a lot of change. A change that would bring total disgrace to this great nation. Call upon your VOICE and choose the right candidate, and not one that cannot even have a top secret clearance.

Obama Marches To A Different Drum

Who is Barack Obama? That seems to be the question that many Americans want to know the answer to. The other question that Americans want answered is: How do we find out who Obama is when he doesn't answer the questions? Barack has shown the people how to eloquently answer questions without really answering the question. So, how do we know who Obama is? One way is to take a deeper look into who he aligns himself with, what they believe, and how long they have been actively believing those beliefs.

We have taken a little time to observe things that his "spiritual adviser" has said, but we have not spent much time looking into who Rev. Wright has aligned himself with. Remembering that Barack has been a part of the Trinity United Church of Christ for 20 years is very important. Why? When Obama says he looks to someone as a spiritual adviser and also looks at them as an uncle, one might say that who is aligned with that person would also have a profound impact on Barack also.

Rev. Wright has been a long time supporter of and for Louis Farrakhan and his Nation of Islam. How much of a supporter? Enough to have been noted as having a helping hand in the organization of the Million Man March (MMM) in October of 1995. Wright has written in great detail describing how it was "a once in a lifetime, amazing experience." If Rev. Wright was so passionate about the MMM, who could deny that Obama also had a helping hand? Barack was at a time in his life when he was tirelessly working as a community activist trying to make his name known before running for a spot in the U.S. Senate two years later. Was he "advised" by Wright to help in the organizing of the MMM?

Rev. Wright has also accompanied Farrakhan to Libya to meet with Muammar al-Qaddafi, considered by many to be America's arch enemy. Farrakhan considers al-Qaddafi to be a "trusted friend," "brother," and "fellow struggler in the cause of liberation for our people." While it is unsure if Wright holds al-Qaddafi to the same respect that Farrakhan does, it is to say that they are close if they are out traveling and meeting together. Also, Rev. Wright has also been noted as sending a letter to Saddam Hussein, a deceased enemy to America, calling him a "visionary" whose demise would "mean a setback for the goal of unity [among Muslims]."

So what does this say about who Barack Obama is? Simple. He has surrounded himself with people like Wright, Farrakhan, and possibly al-Qaddafi for many, many years. He has used the guidance of these men, even to the effect of writing a book, The Audacity of Hope, based on a sermon that Wright preached. He has a high regard for some of these men, even to a point of modeling his life after them to some extent.

Obama does "March" to the beat of a different drum. One that does not beat for the progression and advancement of America. America needs a VOICE for change, just not the "change" he would bring.

Obama Lacks The Change Lincoln Was Known For

Barack Obama has been under a lot of attention lately, and for good reason. It is critical for Americans to know everything about who they elect. We need to know who they surround themselves with, and also need to know what they believe in order to know what really makes the candidate the candidate they say they are.

One candidate, Obama, has brought back to light the racial tensions that still separate this country. His whole candidacy is built on "change," and how he would unite America in many ways. Unfortunately, Barack brought a change that this country has been trying to ratify for many years. While Obama has not taken a formal stance on changing the racial issue, Abraham Lincoln was well known for his stance.

Stephen Douglas made the observation that Lincoln "holds that the negro was born his equal and yours, and that he was endowed with equality be the Almighty, and that no human law can deprive him of these rights, which were guaranteed to him by the Supreme Ruler of the Universe." How profound is it to be known by the people how you stand on an issue? In a time when the nation was needing to be united, one man running for the office of President took a stand and made change happen. How is it, now that the people know what Barack studied on a spiritual level, that he could be elected?

Unity is what this country needs. It needs to be united in supporting the troops and their efforts. It needs to be united in the downsizing of our government, and controlling the way they spend our money. It needs to be united in decreasing taxes. Also, it needs to be united on the race issue instead of supporting the possibility that we may face a civil war on whites versus blacks. That would allow us to take our attention away from the borders, and the security thereof, allowing this country to be taken over by illegals.

Barack Obama is in opposition to all the right "change" America needs. Be a VOICE for the right change.
