Lost Law Licenses: Presidents Obama, Clinton, and Nixon

Written by Gary North on September 7, 2012

In my article on the letter I received from a lawyer who insisted — inaccurately — that Michelle Obama let her license to practice law go inactive when her husband surrendered his license in early 2008, I responded: “Did Romney surrender his license? No. Did either of the Clintons surrender theirs? No. Did Nixon surrender his? No.”

I was responding to the argument that it was to be expected that a candidate for the nomination of President would surrender his right to practice law. On the contrary, it had never happened before in American history.

Then I listed people who had not surrendered their licenses: Romney, both Clintons, and Nixon. I thought this point was obvious: I was talking about the nomination. Romney is not President. Neither is Mrs. Clinton.

Nixon surrendered two licenses after he left the White House: California and the Supreme Court. He tried to surrender his third license in New York State. The state Bar’s disciplinary agency disbarred him in July of 1976. It asked him to sign a statement that he was innocent of obstruction of justice. Not wanting to perjure himself, he refused.

Clinton’s situation was similar. The Wikipedia entry on the legal case of Clinton v. Jones explains.

On April 12, 1999, Wright found Clinton in contempt of court for “intentionally false” testimony in Jones v. Clinton, fined him $90,000, and referred the case to the Arkansas Supreme Court’s Committee on Professional Conduct, as Clinton still possessed a law license in Arkansas.

The Arkansas Supreme Court suspended Clinton’s Arkansas law license in April 2000. On January 19, 2001, Clinton agreed to a five-year suspension and a $25,000 fine in order to avoid disbarment and to end the investigation of Independent Counsel Robert Ray (Starr’s successor). On October 1, 2001, Clinton’s U.S. Supreme Court law license was suspended, with 40 days to contest his disbarment. On November 9, 2001, the last day for Clinton to contest the disbarment, he opted to resign from the Supreme Court Bar, surrendering his license, rather than facing penalties related to disbarment.

So, Nixon escaped disbarment in two instances, but not the third, by surrendering his license. Clinton resigned his Supreme Court license in order to avoid disbarment. He was suspended in Arkansas, but not disbarred.

My points in all this are simple with respect to the Obamas’ licenses to practice law: (1) Michelle Obama went inactive in 1994, despite a Harvard Law School degree, which is very strange, unless she was doing so to avoid a hearing on something; (2) her husband “retired” in January 2008. I am not saying that they were ever formally charged with misconduct. I am saying that the most plausible reason for their having abandoned their licenses was to avoid disciplinary action and the threat of public disbarment. That was what Nixon and Clinton fully understood. My critics do not, or, being lawyers, pretend not to.

Obama’s supporters — several of them lawyers — have sent me emails crying “foul.” I don’t much care. This is not a court of law. This is a court of public opinion.

The Snopes entry does not deal with the problem, namely, providing a plausible explanation for two people walking away from the lifetime income and prestige to be gained by certification by Harvard Law School. Michelle Obama was 29 when she quit (went inactive). The Bar granted her this request when she turned 30.

Let me remind readers of the main point I was making in my original article, namely, that President Obama is not a Marxist, because he does not believe in proletarian revolution. Barack Obama is a Left-wing social climber with a wife who loves to shop.  Second, he is under control by his handlers, because they know why he and his wife are no longer allowed to practice law.  It was voluntary on their part in the same was that it was voluntary on Nixon’s part and Clinton’s part. If you want to avoid being disbarred, you can retire or else go inactive.

    Makes one wonder, did their expensive educations cost them anything out of their pocket to be willing to let it go so easily or did someone else pay for all that, Hummmm?

  2. uh, gary you used Wikipedia as your source? Earth to Gary!

  3. Always like the ambiguous terms such as "handlers". WHO specifically do you mean? Always helps to know the enemy.

  4. Americans (that leaves-out the occupier-fraud-in-chief squatting in OUR White House): where there is smoke there is fire. Why has the lame-stream media skirted from mentioning why "mooch elle" let her "law license" lapse? gee, to avoid publicity and disciplinary action for questionable practices kept under the radar? just like the obummer documents under wraps? BTW, a President should not have the relinquish a law degree just because of getting elected, as in the forthcoming President Romney.

  5. Wikipedia is not the only source of infomation. For instance, when I saw the video of Obama telling veterans that his father fought in WWII and got veteran's benefits when he left the army in 1945, I didn't have to check Wikipedia to find out that Barack Obama, Sr., was born in 1936, making him 5 years old when WWII started.

    this isn't a court of law. There is no provision here for legal loopholles to block common sense.

  6. Jacvob Steelman says:

    There has been no modern day President who has been more unwilling to disclose personal information than President Obama and his wife. From a simple birth certificate to giving up his law license he refuses to make any disclosures and yet the media does nothing. People are not that stupid – if you are not willing to disclose personal information then you are hiding something, hiding so big that the American people (who are a relatively forgiving people) will not foregive.

    Obama is the Manchurian candidate created and manufactured by someone or some group who is opposed to America and the American people. Is it the CIA, some foreign intelligence agency, or an economic interest such as a middle eastern sheik such as Saudi Arabia? or big insurance companies? or bogus solar energy companies?

  7. Luis D Rey says:

    Mr. Gary North:
    How you could you state/post that The Mudslum Obama is not a Marxist?
    How do you know what THIS SON OF PERDITION AND IMPOSTOR has in mind whether is proletarian revolution or not?
    Don't you know that THIS PUPPET/CLOWN who sit at The Black House wants to destroy our American way of living or are you defending these couple while pretending not to?

  8. "…or an economic interest such as a middle eastern sheik such as Saudi Arabia"
    And BO gives speeches at AIPAC every year pledging undying support of Israel, dons a yarmulke and goes to the Wailing Wall on Easter Sunday to prove what a committed Ay-rab he is. Yeah, right.

  9. He can always have a job with "ACORN!" as the "sweeps up man ! We sure as hell dont need him…..

  10. Don Butler says:

    America must not re-elect Obama! For all the reasons elequently and not so elequently expressed, the American body politic is divided. Lincoln said: "A divided nation cannot stand". Jefferson said: "The problem with democracy is: People eventually get the government they deserve". Franklin said: "Any man who would sacrifice liberty for security, deserves neither security nor liberty". Alexis Detoqueville, (French philosopher), visting America in 1833, said: "America is great, because America is good. When America ceases to be good, America will cease to be great!". Alexis Detoqueville again: "America will last until the majority of it's citizens realize they can vote for themselves largess from the public treasury". Should the unthinkable occur, i.e., Obama and his commie cronies, become re-elected in November 2012, this once God fearing nation will be destined for the dustbin of history. I fear if, God forbid, Obama and his commie cronies are re-elected, we will be living witness to the demise of America, resulting from within, i.e., the voting booth.

    My grandfather once told me to take anything an attorney said with a grain of salt. He also said that anything lower than a whale’s fecal matter is a lawyer/politician. He said that any time one of them surrended his or her law license it was to avoid being disbarred for malfesence. They always have something they do not want you to know about themselves.The criteria seems to be to lie and deny. Professional politicians are only interested in enhancing their bank account.We definately need term limits for elected officers and stop appointments to positions of trust, responsibility and authority. James William Johnson.

    Yhat heading should read “James, not jamea”. jwj

  13. What a crock. Recycling Tea Party lies and baseless ad hominem attacks to flim flam the suckers. In the court of public opinion you're guilty of being a hack. Both the Obamas can reactivate their law licenses any time they please. There is exactly nothing suspicious about attorneys going onto inactive status or voluntry retirement if they are not then actively practicing law.

    Tea Party propagandist? Yes. Tea Party economist? Not so much.

  14. scgator2001 says:

    Hussein has shown anyone with an IQ even approaching room temperature that he is a Muslim supporter.

    Libya? Used US Military illegally to overthrow a relatively friendly government.

    Egypt: Muslim Brotherhood is now killing Christians. Obama sent $$ and supports them. Obama has a Muslim Brotherhood adviser in the White House.

    Syria: Overthrow the government, expect the same Muslims to gain power.

    Iraq: Removed US Troops ASAP, Muslims are working to overthrow government now.

    End game is Syria, Egypt, Libya, Iraq and Iran: Destroy Israel. Next: USA.

  15. Sue have you ever heard of george soros , helllllllo !!!

  16. James William Johnson says:

    The reason obama has not been arrested and incarcerated is because congress and the senate did not get off of their steatopygias and check that Kenyan out until he had passed so much, that they approved, that they just couldn’t bring themselves to admit that they had screwed up. Mea culpa. I’m 84 now and probably too old to live out a term. Woulda, shoulda, coulda.

    I’m really a little lighter now. James William Johnson. May

  17. Yellow Lab says:

    it is only $250/yr. I'm sure they can afford that. The usual procedure in Illinois is to retain your license and THEN go on an inactive status for a fairly legitimate reason such as illness, illness of a family member, or a sabbatical.

  18. Handlers refers to the global elite cabal of bankers, industrialists,oil barons, Bill and Melinda Gates and other billionaires, european royalty, current and former politicians and many others who have made and stolen mega millions off the backs of the world's working people. These heartless, arrogant handlers all agree that the world is overpopulated and requires thinning in the name of environmental sustainability. They believe that the middle class is specifically to blame, because they consume more of the world's resources than the poor. Google UN Agenda 21 for a complete understanding of the evil, selfish, tyrannical beliefs of the elite monsters.

  19. Mooch lost her license for insurance fraud someone on another site went to the freedom of information act and posted the results

  20. They paid nothing for their college. If you will remember a speech that Michelle did before Obama was elected she stated that she hated it that she had to go to school on the white mans dime.

    his überlordship may not be a Marxist, but he did belong to Chicago's kommie-sympathizing 'New Party. http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/06/0

    And I heard from a former New party member and Illinois Supreme Court page who wishes to remain anonymous that this is the reason both he and she 'went inactive' legally speaking.

  22. Bless2live says:

    Always count on a left wing liberal democrat nut to be mixed with the Devil ! Ha ha! Hi swift-boat Kerry! Ha! Hey,it is what it is!

  23. In my life I have know and had many friends in the legal profession , in all I trust perhaps five of them . Two of these individuals were Quakers and elders at Friends Meeting when I was in my early teens . One a friend and neighbor and the last two my own personal business lawyers . All have given wise advice at various times either off the cuff or as part of their employment . All are or were honorable men who would no sooner relinquish their law license then they would knowingly break any law . As two of these individuals are now deceased I relied on the three remaining when I asked them for their take on this . The answers I got were interesting especially since one of them is a registered Democrat or , should I say was .

    He in fact told me that it was the very question of the legality of this president that caused him to abandon the Democratic Party . He felt that no one would seal all of their past records unless there was something very big being hidden nor would they give up their law degree and license for any reason lest it was to avoid the disgrace of being disbarred . And by the way , this gentleman is my business lawyer and a member of the Hispanic community where I live . He like the other two stated that the questionable practices of this administration and the obvious circumvention of law and the Constitution was evidence enough that this president had no respect for law and could quite possibly have been under investigation for questionable practice . Something that would not bode well for anyone seeking to run for president . And as there is no law that requires that a president give up his license to practice it is not logical to assume Obama nor his wife gave theirs up so willingly other than to hide something .

    That said , I would question it based on the old saying , " Where there is smoke , there is fire "

    Me too! She hated it so much, she took the money. She could have said no and worked her way through college. She. is a lying hypocrite

  26. DieHardPatriot says:

    I am going to have to bring some people up to date including the author of this article.
    Michelle Obama was ORDERED BY A COURT to stop practicing Law
    Barack Obama just didn’t bother to renew his license because he did not supply all his alias name on his original application (Fraudulent application)….which would have lead to probable disbarment and fines…..so true to the Obama Character he skipped renewing at all! Both Michelle and Obama’s records as to why they no longer were practice law are listed in two different records. Michelle’s was where no lawyer ever wants to see his/her name.

  27. WW-II started in 1939. The US entered the war in 1941 but the war started in 1939! (Hence, to your comment, Obama's dad would have been 3 years old.)

  28. vaquerobob says:

    Also very troubling, I cannot recall a presidential candidate EVER sealing their records from public review. The vetting process for the office of POTUS was always intense and considered "part of the deal". I do recall prospective candidates deciding not to subject themselves and their records to whatd has been called a backside orifice exam… which considering the importance of the office is totally appropriate. Yet Obama has been allowed to prevent the American electorate from seeing his records??? When did the vetting process get changed???

    Soros, axelrod, and jarret. Valerie Jarret is the puppiter for obozo and his wife. Jarret was a barnuckle on Daleys cohone. She is entrenched in the chicago politcal scum. The woman behind the throne…..definately a godless murdering POS like the DNC party.

  31. EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT SYNOPSIS!!

    I might add parapharsed from the Art of War by Sun Tzu – "Change the mind, change the culture, DEFEAT THE ENEMEY".

  32. That is why the obamas have to amass all they can at the public trough before they have to find jobs.

  33. Once again, Gary proves himself to be a #$%ing idiot.

  34. George Soros, for starters.

  35. Nik, before making yourself appear to be an uneducated moron and obvious Obot, I suggest you do some research of public records in Illinois. You do understand the concept of research before speaking with any sense of authority, don’t you? Reasearch does not include looking up a topic in your Obot Handbook. One’s party affiliation has nothing to do with it.

    Barack surrendered his licence when it was discovered that he had lied on his Bar license application. He said he had never been known by any other name than Barack Obama. That was a lie. Michelle voluntarily surrendered her law license in lieu of being charged with insurance fraud. It’s amazing how attached you liberals are to your rose colored glasses and ear plugs.

  36. UN Small Arms Treaty. Google it.

  37. The lack of transparency in itself is questionable. I all were above board then there would be no need to speculate, now would there?

  38. who else good ole sugar daddy george soros
    the puppet master and obumba the puppet

  39. If it’s not suspicious why did Michelle surrender her license 14 years before her husband ran for office?????

  40. Idylewylde says:

    The Media did not vet Obama because the media created Obama.
    They've been scripting the DNC since Carter. They actually felt that they could create any persona they want, or reverse engineer any persona they want .. like Clinton.
    Obama is their first attempt to actually manufacture a persona from scratch.
    This is so Orwellian that you have to wonder who and what is behind it.
    Soros comes to mind, but, frankly, he's such an apparatchik that he must be a sock-puppet.
    No, this is deeper .. probably a hidden brain-trust project coming out of the Ivy League schools supported by a government grant.
    If this is true, not one polititican in the DNC is real .. not really .. they're just 'Reality Show' TV stars fronting for a hidden think tank, all of it coreographed by Hollywood producers, all of it marketed by the Media, especially the Lame Stream Press.
    Obama is an empty suit … the teleprompter is his script … his party is a Punch&Judy skit to distract us from what is really going on.

  41. Why isn't anyone stepping up for a Full Investigation of this Liar. Start Impeachment Now.

  42. Try George Soros.

  43. I have a hard time believing anything about these two liars!

  44. Thanks to all who wrote and I'm not really sure why I had so many thumbs down? This is exactly what I wanted! Why don't the authors of such articles place blame where it belongs instead of ambiguity? Thanks again to all who "defined".

  45. Nik-Let's see how quickly they "reactivate" their licenses after they get removed from the White House come Jan. 20, 2013.

  46. Mitt got his law degree (at the same time that he got his business degree) because his father wanted him to have it (and he graduated with HONORS in both). It's rather delicious that Mitt does not use his law degree but can practice law IF HE WANTS TO, but Mr. & Mrs. Obama cannot use their degrees even if they want to!

  47. Think about it, I'm sure you can figure it out . It goes deeper into government than they want anybody to go. I'm sure threats have been made and favors called in to not pursue this. But again just saying…. cannot prove.

  48. Why not? Because our Congress is overflowing with criminals just like him!

  49. islam is a Germ says:

    When, what you say may happen, Don Butler,… thats when the REAL WAR starts and the real BLOOD FLOWS by the tens of thousands of gallons! The Civil War of the 1860's will be a baby's fight, compared to what will happen now … !

    There are Patriots, believe it or not who WILL NOT STAND FOR, what you say will happen! It will be beyond comprehension to the people of today!

  50. islam is a Germ says:

    You have just told everyone,… you are a stinking communist, you are also a P.O.S.

  51. Bravo! Bravo! Such a comprehensive detailed rebuttal of the article, full of facts to back it up. You are one of those rare Obama supporters who knows how to defend the man without using ad hominem attacks.

  52. Anti-Obama Lawyer says:

    If you you don't trust Obama (and I certainly don't!) then even if he did release records, how would we know whether any records he releases are genuine, or fabrications?

    Am I supposed to presume that he is a liar about taxes (he is), a liar about his parents participation and his role in the Selma Civil Rights March (where he lied again), and a liar about hundreds of other things (where he actually has lied), but then assume that when it comes to releasing a copy of his "records", that he's going to suddenly become Mr. Truthful and release only genuine records, not falsified records? Please!

    With most of these "records" people are demanding, if he were to release them to you, you'd have no way of figuring out whether the records are genuine of not. If he "released" something to you that said "Harvard Transcript" or "Columbia Transcript" on it how would you know whether or not it was real? The liberals at Harvard and Columbia aren't going to contradict anything Obama says anyway.

    From Obama's standpoint, or the standpoint of most any other office holder (Sarah Palin, Mitt Romney, or otherwise) there is really NOTHING to be gained by releasing personal records. If you release them, that just prompts critics and opponents (who are going to complain anyway, no matter what) to insist that documents are forged. This emboldens them to demand more records. Appeasement only encourages them!!! Mitt Romney realizes this which is why he has (correctly, in my view) decided not to release even more years of tax returns. Remember what happened after Romney gave in and only released ONE year of returns. That just prompted the Democrats to demand additional years!

    Besides, if you don't release the records, then your opponents WASTE THEIR TIME complaining about the refusal to release records instead of focusing on more important issues, such as criticizing your disastrous liberal policies. Every minute an opponent wastes complaining about records that undecided voters don't care about, is a minute that is not spent persuading undecided voters that Obama's tax policies are wrong. Undecided voters are going to care about college transcripts. Democrats will vote for him anyway, whether or not he releases transcripts, and Conservatives won't vote for him no matter what he releases. So why bother releasing anything?

    "Releasing records" is like talking to the cops, no matter how innocent you are (or no matter how innocent you *think* you are), there is nothing to be gained by releasing all your records. Just as an innocent person gains nothing by talking to the cops (although most non-lawyers don't understand this point because they do not understand how the rules of evidence work and they don't understand the game of "selective quotation" played by cops and by the media.)

    Of course, Obama is not particularly innocent. Just look at his Rezko dealings for starters. But just because people have decided to stay silent or not disclose things in general doesn't mean they've done anything wrong. Maybe it just means they don't want to give their opponents anything to selectively quote.

    Since Obama didn't have much of a legal career, I suspect that he was not under investigation, he just didn't want to bother having to go to CLE classes to keep his license active, especially since he is not using it.

    Fellow conservatives, let's focus on Obama's REAL scandals (there are more than enough of them) and not spend too much time going down rabbit holes. Maybe the Obama's ditched the licenses to avoid disbarment, or maybe they didn't need the licenses to earn a living anymore, and that being the case they didn't want to attend CLE classes and pay fees to keep them active.

  53. Anti-Obama Lawyer says:

    Typo correction:

    Paragraph 5, sentence 3 should read:

    "Undecided voters are **NOT** going to care about college transcripts."

  54. Anti-Obama Lawyer says:

    A general point:

    "Releasing records" is like talking to the cops, no matter how innocent you are (not that Obama is innocent), there is nothing to be gained by releasing all your records — just as an INNOCENT person gains nothing by talking to the cops (although most non-lawyers don't understand this point because they do not understand how the rules of evidence work and they don't understand the game of "selective quotation" played by cops and by the media.)

    From Obama's standpoint, or the standpoint of most any other office holder (Sarah Palin, Mitt Romney, or otherwise) there is really NOTHING to be gained by releasing personal records. If you release them, that just prompts critics and opponents (who are going to complain anyway, no matter what) to insist that documents are forged. This emboldens them to demand more records.

Undecided voters are going to care about college transcripts. Democrats will vote for him anyway, whether or not he releases transcripts, and Conservatives won't vote for him no matter what he releases. So why bother releasing anything?

  55. Anti-Obama Lawyer says:

    In the 1990's many states imposed new rules requiring that lawyers attend hours and hours of CLE classes (Continuing Legal Education) in order to keep their law licenses active. They also imposed new annual/biennial fees that lawyers had to pay every year in order to keep their licenses active. The result is that if someone with a law license is presently working in a job where the license is not required, that person will (typically from what I've seen) either "retire" or go into "inactive" status or "resign" or otherwise quit (the exact terminology varies from state to state).

    If there were no annual fees and CLE class requirements to maintain a license, you might be right. But the CLE requirements and fees give no-longer practicing lawyers a good reason to deactivate their licenses. Why attend hours of classes and pay hundreds of dollars every year to maintain a license you no longer use? Seriously, why?

    Do you spend hundreds of dollars and waste time to maintain state licenses that you no longer use? I wouldn't. Would you?

  56. Anti-Obama Lawyer says:

    Don't confuse law DEGREES (conferred by schools) with law LICENSES (conferred by the state). Mitt got the DEGREE but as far I as can find, never bothered to get the LICENSE and hence he would not have gone through the character and fitness review that lawyers must go through in order to be admitted to the bar.

    Mitt, as far as I can find, does not have a license to practice law (he has only a law DEGREE from a school), although he could probably get a license to practice law if he wanted one. You usually need a law degree in order to get a law license (although there are some exceptions).

    If Mitt wanted to practice law, he would FIRST have to get admitted to the bar. He could do this by using his law degree to sit for the bar, then he'd have to pass the bar and pass a character and fitness review.

    After some searching I could not find any record of Romney being licensed by any particular state to practice law. Attorney records are usually pretty easy to locate. Maybe I missed something although I doubt it. If you have evidence that Romney in fact holds a state bar LICENSE (not to be confused with a law DEGREE conferred by a school!) please let me know which state it is, and what his state Juris Number is.

    Thus, as for all this talk that "Romney didn't turn in his law license": IF Mitt never had a state law LICENSE then Mitt has never turned in his state law license if for no other reason than the fact that Romney never had a state law LICENSE in the first place!

  57. Anti-Obama Lawyer says:

    The Obama's are multi-millionaires because of his book sales. Like most former presidents, Obama stands to make a fortune on the lecture circuit (Clinton made about $100 million), even though no person in their right mind should pay to listen to anything Obama has to say.

    With all the money they now have and all the money he'll will unfortunately make from giving speeches, I doubt the Obama's will ever go back to practicing law (which is not nearly as remunerative). Thus, I doubt they'll ever try to "reactivate" (or whatever the term is) their law licenses.

    At this point, those licenses don't do them any good. Seriously, what would you expect either of them to do with a law license at this point if they had one?

  58. Anti-Obama Lawyer says:

    "If you've been injured in an accident in Illinois, call Barack and Michelle and we'll fight the insurance companies to protect your legal rights and make sure you get what's fair!"

    I suppose I might hear that ad on TV someday, but I doubt it.

    Not after all the business that guy just gave to the insurance companies. Besides, since when does Obama fight for anyone's legal rights?

  59. gary north is an democrat obama drone!!

  60. Blair Franconia, NH says:

    Here's hoping Holder loses his.

  61. A gutless congress, a complicite senate. or a bunch of traitors to America. Take your pick. We wouldn't be in this place if the C. and S. were real American patriots, instead of a bunch of communist, cowards or stupid individuals. (Like the rep from the South who thought that Guam was going to capsize because of the population. And on top of that he is a lawyer?)

  62. her licens was taken , becouse she was in an insuresssnce swindle , he had to give his up for other duings,

  63. Obama lost his license because of perjury. Michelle losr hers because of insurance fraud….Just shows you the type of people sitting our huse in D.C.

  64. Nik, OWEbumbler not only LIED about NOT using an alias–he was Barry Soetoro much of his life, accusations are he attended Occidental College as Barry Soetoro of Indonesia. He also failed to disclose several hundred dollars of BACK TRAFFIC FINES he owed and had not paid at time of his license surrender.

  65. Agree! That is just what I read when I googled it yesterday.

  66. One day I was trying to explain to an intelligent, uneducated older gentleman my feelings about attorneys. Having been raised during a period before patriotism became anti-American and before maladjusted, same gender people became mommy and mommy or daddy and daddy. Even before really mixed up people weren't sure if they would be a mommy or daddy so they had an operation and becamed dammy. But I digress, That old gentleman put barristers, jurists and lawyers into very clear persepctive for me. He said he would put lawyers in the same catagory as sex offenders, perverts and those dammies I mentioned. But! He said that would be totaly unfair to the sex offenders, perverts and those dammies and give them all a bad reputation.

  67. andy reich says:

    Dear Sir, I think your comment is quite extraordinarily honest. Few would say this. I've tried and tried to find how this most egregious situation occurred. How did this travesty happen to the American people? I have no answers. And, I remain continually perplexed. So much so that I will be a political activist. Hopefully others will understand our plight.

  68. just some guy says:

    Yes, but isn't the information posted in Wikipedia footnoted with third party sources? That is a lame 'point' meant to discredit those who want the truth disseminated. Don't believe me? Go to Wikipedia and do some research by yourself instead of relying on the opinions of others.

  69. Nope! 0'Bamas foreign and Domestic factions that CREATED him paid for HIS! After it was decided by the(same creators()_people with the agenda, that he needed a normal family, they picked up HER tab too! Funny no history of HER history in the USA is transparent! Their "happy family hype" is just that! Hype! HE has been on welfare all his life! Without skills experience, knowedge, business acumen, nor political savvy! He came FROM nothing but radical friends and family! He will leave the same way! Except for the millions in oil revenues safely put away as bonus's for his "job-well done" on America!!

  70. Obamination went to Harvard on an oil sheiks dime. He is and always has been a fraud. His grandfather Dunham is rumored to have been in the CIA. This could explain his possession of a Conn. Social Security number and his early determination to become POTUS. Just saying, could be……

  71. Obama gave up his lisence for lying on his application, Michelle gave up hers for something to do with her job that was bought and paid for by Obama. It was some sort of fraud, so rather than being disbarred she relenquished it.

  72. Southern Girl says:

    Sue, He didn't need to explain really as most of the readers here fully understand who Obama's "handlers" are. But, glad you clarified your questioning. I take it you are a bit behind on the subject of Obama and his mentors.

  73. Fred From SC says:

    Valery Jerrett, Axel Greaser and Rohm Emanual know the story and anyone that doubts they are the handlers have been sleeping next to Rip Van Winkle.

  74. John, isn't Snopes really spelled Soros?

  75. You really don't think they paid for education? obama was supported by the soros family early on then his gay rich lover started picking up tab. I read that he and michelle had their license revoked and I am trying to find it again. If u go to utube and type in obamas gay lover murdered (right after obama was elected) and the media never touched it.

  76. NM Patriot says:

    And IL is one of these states? Although I cannot believe that a Chicago lawyer would be able to do anything egregious enough to be singled out for potential disbarment. Maybe 'Shelly just wanted to be a stay at home mom. Or maybe the fact that her $80,000 a year job was suddenly worth $300,000 when the little hubby got himself elected?

    Of course getting elected in Chicago is sufficient probable cause for an indictable offense accusation, too…

  77. You say Obama is not a Marxist because he does not believe in Proletarian Revolution. How would you know that? It appears to me that is why he is always stirring up charges of racism and trying to instigate class warfare. He has people so upset with each other it scares me to think what will happen if he is not reelected and if he is reelected. There is no telling what is going to happen. I see people on the internet that are screaming they'll riot and burn things down if Romney is elected. I think your remark is short-sighted to say the least..

  78. I think he said his grandfather, not his father. Hell, he doesn't even know who his father is.

  79. NM Patriot says:

    That, unfortunately, would require an act of an empty scrotumed congress. Probably happen the day after the Pope gets married. Albeit it would make a lovely wedding present…

  80. Surely you understand that this country's "Law Enforcement" would not tolerate any such action against the Chimp in Chief. After all, he DOES sign their paychecks. And that is ALL that matters to the Praetorian Guard…

  81. Footnoted or not, Wikipedia is NOT a trustworthy source, nor it is a scholastically or professionally acceptable source. Surely, his information being good, he could have found a better source to quote from? Or at least a secondary source to back it up.
    Not saying the point here isn't a good one, but really, Wikipedia? Come on!

  82. Re-activation of a license can only happen within 2 years. After that the license is gone. Nik is either just some virtual persona, not a real person, or a paid commenter for the dnc. Everything involving this admin. is smoke & mirrors. You reply to these fake persona's and they get your location in which they can concentrate the attack knowing where the anti-bo comments are coming from. Persona management software, we are replying to a computer. All of these conservative sites are riddled with PMS. It is all fake, the poll numbers, the unemployment numbers, the jobs created numbers, the supporters, the commercials, the campaign, all of it because NO one wants 4 more of bo. BO stinks. People want fresh clean air. Look around and look at what is actual. When you look around what do you see? Anti- bo bumper stickers, billboards, signs, chairs, t-shirts, toilet paper & email's. You do not see any "in support" signs for bo anywhere. In 2008 at this time, 60 days before the election, the support signs were everywhere. I do not and have not seen any in el swing state FL. Since the RNC convention all I see is empty chairs on many lawns with signs that say "EMPTY CHAIR". FL primaries went 67% conservative, we are not a swing state, we are Romney country like most of the U.S.A. Every election since 2010 has gone RED. November will follow suit. 2012 is the end of an ERROR. Keep the faith!

  83. George Soros!!!!!

  84. I say no matter your political persuasion, all of us need to see the movie, "2016". Dinesh D'Souza does a fairly decent job of explaining Obama's hell bent drive to dismantle this nation and devastate our people. And, he will destroy each and every one of us; the poor and middle class included! I say D'Souza does a decent job, because he tries to make his documentary as factual as possible. Had D'Souza access to some or all of Obama' sealed information, then he could have blown this whole sham open-wide. Instead, he used what lttle info we have to put the puzzle together. Make no bones about it; Obama is out to decimate our nation. He would love it if we took a back seat to the middle east, Russia and China. He is trying to make it happen. How else do you explain his refusal to stop spending trillions of dollars for nothing but entitlements and pet projects of his liberal base? How do you explain his treatment of Israel? Or how do you explain his calls for reduction of US nukes below that which Russia and China will have in ther possession? He is an imposter….no doubt about it!!

  86. One other thing that all of you should know. Today I received a call from a very conservative party member of the party called, America's Party. They want their leaders name on the ballot because they cannot tolerate Romney. The leader is Tom Hoefling, a virtual unknown. This party has worked for 6 or more years trying to get Alan Keyes elected. Now, they want this other guy elected. The thing that bothers me is that these people have drunk the kool-aid and want their following of thousands of tea party members to vote for this Tom guy. If they do, we are screwed. I implore all of you to expose them. If you look it up, you will see this party's former name was the American Independence Party.

  87. What makes you act so stupid?

  88. critical questions concerning Barrack Obama (AKA Soetoro) Where was he born; What is his real name “Obama” or “Soetoro” Indonesian Citizen. And how was he able to by pass the vetting process when he became a Democratic Candidate for the Presidency where he would have been exposed and disqualified for not being an American Citizen. He cannot hide or block the following information..Obama is presently using a forged Soc. Security

    # 042-68-4425 belonging to:

    Jean Paul Ludwig, who was born in France in 1890, immigrated to the United States in 1924, and was assigned SSN 042-68-4425 in the state of Connecticut. He moved to Hawaii in 1969 where he died in 1972. The first 3 digits 042 of a SS # is assigned only to Connecticut……. Why is he getting away with this Federal Offense which is an indictable crime….Hundreds or thousands of people are prosecuted for stealing SS numbers each year and doing time in federal penitentiaries…… FACT: He stole the SS # because he could not get a legitimate one since he is not and never was a US Citizen. HE NEVER SHOULD HAVE BEEN ALLOWED TO RUN FOR THE PRESIDENCY.

    Obama (AKA Soetoro) says he needs another four years to solve all of the problems he made far worse than when he took office. Why didn’t he at least do something? instead he made things more worse than can be imagined. If he worked in private industry; he would have been fired after three months.

  89. Just like everything else they are trying to cover up: what ever it is, I'm sure it is "smelly"

  90. Robert, not meaning to insult your intelligence but it would be the most stupid thing that hap happened since his election. There is not enough time left in his first term to do anything and all this practice in stupidity could accomplish is cause a lot of the moronic voters that helped put him in office but have decided not to bother to vote for a lost cause, to, out of sympathy for him, go to the polls and vote for him on election day. I don't care what happens to the creep after he leaves office. If you want revenge on him, then do what you must, just leave him alone until after the election.

  91. Obama Lied on his Illinois Law Application about his being a foreign exchange student and that he used a different name. Michelle surrendered hers when it became evident that charges were pending for her disbarment. This Info was available prior to the Obama's having that info sealed.

  92. Let's put the blame squarely where it belongs, if the American vogtfer cared more for his country than he cares about his favorite sport and team, and he was more involved in politics than he is in sports, then maybe, just maybe Obama would not have gotten elected. The Republican party has to take a lot of the blame for nominating John McCain to run on the GOP ticket. If you really want to know who is most at fault for Obama being in the Office of President you can meet this character in your bathroom tomorrow morning when you shave. Just look in the mirror.

  93. Rose-Marie Noa says:

    Try George Soros!!!!

  94. Arlinda DeAngelis says:

    The disbarment of the Obamas, a critical event in any lawyer's life, appeared no where in the media. As a matter of fact they were continually referred to as "Constitutional Lawyers". Obama garnered the title Professor of Constitutional which he was not. The closest he ever got to teaching law was as an adjunct for six months who was not invited to return because he was such a second rate teacher. The Illinois.gov website used to list the birth year of the attorney. The birth date that was listed for Barack Obama was 1890 which I thought was a typo. Then came the issue of one of the two social security numbers he was using. One of them was issued in Connecticut to a man born in 1890!!!!! Then I realized that date was not a typo. It was the date that appeared when they checked his SSN. You are correct, no president has ever voluntarily surrendered their law license. In the case of the Obamas why would they have given up their law licenses worth abut $10 million dollars each because they are graduates of Harvard Law School. Harvard is the most expensive law school in the country and on what planet would anyone voluntarily permanently surrender their law license thereby crippling their ability to repay the loans they took out. Obama like John F. Kennedy was never questioned, accused of and/or investigated for anything they'd ever done. They were darlings of the media, the country be damned.

  95. I think the tree desperately needs to be refreshed right now.

  96. Mike Armstrong says:

    My understanding, as you say, was that she lost hers because of insurance fraud. He gave his up because when asked by the Ill. bar if he had alias’s he said no. I don’t know if that’s perjury but they didn’t like it.

  97. Hey Big John, instead of asking us all of those questions, why don't you just tell us the answers?

  98. awkingsley says:

    I think neither of them wants to practice law after Obama leaves the White House. I believe they want to retire to Africa where the wealth has already been re-distributed, and they will be the only ones who have any,.

  99. If the CIA was involved, don’t you think they would do a better job of creating false identities or patching/fixing errors that others created?

  100. Does Soros belong to the more or less underground group, the Builderbergers? Or any other international group composed of the people who REALLY call the shots?

  101. Wally Yes Beev says:

    Obama when a student made sure that his professors were of Marxist teaching's. He was raised by his Marxist believing Mother and Islamic Muslim Step Father Lolo S. …who when living in Indonesia gave him a pet Monkey called Ta ta. Lolo S. would take little Barry to pray to the monkey God Uagadugu. And induct Barry into Islam. Later in life once in Hawaii where it is thought was born or perhaps not… Was raised by Grandma Toot for a very few years…e.g. White Grandma Toot somehow Knows of all people Franklin Davis… Franklin a 60's black rights eradicable Mentors Barry S. who changes his name to a Muslim birth name… Barack. Barack becomes addicted to alcoholic and hard drugs over being who he is e.g. White. Now an Adult lives on mainland America…enter Rev J Wright etc.,

  102. Anything I said that was not to your liking? site administer?

  103. They already have. If you can't accept this, why should anyone? See what I mean??

  104. Valerie jarrett

  105. No, Obama went on Fulbright scholarships, at least to Occidental and Columbia, on which he's listed as an Indonesian national.

  106. Soros, for one; not sure who others may be, as they're too well hidden in shadows.

  107. Hers was fraud; his was lying to the Bar about having used aliases or names other than that which he listed with them; they found out about his adoption as Barry Soetoro.

  108. Further, his father wasn't even in the US, to join our military, until 1960, makes it real hard to be a vet and receive benefits from WWII too. And as he was only on a student visa, that wouldn't even have gotten him in to go to Vietnam!

  109. The Communist party for one is a good bet. Don't know if you're old enough to recall Kruschev banging his shoe on the desk at the UN, screaming :"We will bury you!" or not. I do, and being a kid at the time, thought he meant with nukes,of which there were enough between us and them to kill every man, woman, and child about 10 or so times over at that time! Now I'm not so sure; they've totally taken over our schools from K through PhD, and indoctrinated about 2 1/2 generations to believe their sick lies…I also remember coverage of the McCarthy Congressional hearings, and I also wonder if he'd pursued them more aggressively, we might have weeded those out before the damage was done.

  110. ProudUSAVet says:

    Obama went to school on a Fulbright scholarship, which is given only to non-citizens, or foreign students. He had to declare he was not a U S citizen, that is why he doesn't release his collegiate transcripts.

  111. @Gary North: How exactly does a person, raised from CONCEPTION quite literally, grow up surrounded by Marxist/Stalinist Communists{mother, maternal grandparents, father, and high school and college schoolmates at least} WITHOUT being thoroughly indoctrinated by them??? Of course he's one too; same as he's still a Muslim and an Indonesian national!

  112. ProudUSAVet says:

    The reason he was disbarred was that he lied on his application for the Bar in Illinois. They asked him if he had ever used another name, and he answered no. In fact, some of the investigations conducted by Sheriff Joe of Arizona found that his name in Indonesia – Barry Soetero – had never been officially dropped, so his legal name now is Barry Soetero, not Barack Hussein Obama.

  113. tali, Amongst us, we have questioned and detected obama’s agenda and idiology, long before the movie. I will see it and find a small light at the end of the tunnel that may start to expose this Manchurian Candidate, something the Media never bothered to do. Exposing obama, is a sure thing that you will be labeled a bigot and racist, because of obama’s ethnicity. Hopefully D’Souza, has started the boulder down the hill and as it rolls will pick up speed and cause an avalanche of huge proportions. I truely believe this Alinsky Marxist is bent on destroying this country, block by block. Those who choose to vote for their candidate outside of the two major candidates is only hurting the country and our chances to rid ourselves of this pretender. I know Ron Paul is a obstacle, that could cause obama to be elected,also Gary North, could take votes away from Romney. All this at a time when our one objective is to blow this Marxist out of the office he has tainted. One can only hope that at the last minute and those who are of question, decide at the last moment,for the country, not to suit their politics only.

  114. Thomasstewart says:

    Right-On blueglas Just Remember Our Birther-In-Chief Barry Soetoro, Was Adopted By Lolo Soetoro, Yikeess, Plus Being A Patholgical Liar When Asked If He Ev er Used Another Name Other Than Barack Obama??? No!!! Case Closed Barry. God Bless America And Sarah Palin.

  115. Richard Vandervort says:

    It's simple to see that the Obama's were shown and warned of the problematic implications that could arise if caught up with their list of sorted impropriety to the law.
    Clinton learned the hard way and I'm sure that he conveyed his learnings on to the Obama's.

  116. You can go to the Illinois State Bar and see that Obama voluntarily gave up his license to practice law. I already checked this out a year ago. It's public record!! Do a little more of your own research John and you will get to the truth.

  117. NancyNotPelosi says:

    sorry I don't have the link but search Dr. Coleman on the New World Order or One World government. Pretty scary stuff that when mentioned most people will just laugh and say that can't happen. Read "Hope of the Wicked" just the first chapter quotes from organizations some as early as 1900 that have reported the way to bring america down is to infiltrate from the inside: government can influence: education, taxes, economy, healthcare, environment, science; media and hollywood can work to spread the lies and strip God away from the people (homosexuals, abortion, promiscuity) There are documents from the UN that describe unarming the US to "provide a peaceful world!" Get the video "Agenda" It's better than 2016. I allready know about Frank Marshall Davis and Obama SR and their influences. Agenda tells how our entire society is being shaken down by communists. I cannot keep up with the crap that is being thrown at us to divide and conquer. Doomsday is closer than we think. WAKE UP PEOPLE

  118. Richard Vandervort says:

    To think that even Orson Wells twisted mind couldn't have come up with and created such a Demented and Horrifying monster to the well being of mankind such as Obama but the Democratic Party and Lame Stream Media sure did with ease.
    Dementia seems to be the new normal of the far left liberal minds of the Democrat's and this is what we have to change by removing them from places of power in our society.

  119. Vetting was from Pelosi as speaker of the house. She approved all his statements or did not vet him at all but just "approved" by signing and certifying two pieces of paper, certifying as "True" Obama's statements, on the application as a candidate. She did not bother or she is in cohoots or a lot of "winking" happened.
    After that all his personal records were sealed. Millions of taxpayer money he spent to hide these personal records from everyone.
    I agree with you Bob.

  120. everyone should be required to see the movie 2016 and see the real Obama. Why he is doing what he is doing to this country.
    You will go away with the way the man thinks and his motive for destroying this great country of ours.

  121. Kay,
    Stop and think about the millions of jobs Bill Gates created for our country.
    When was the last time that you got a job from a POOR person????????

  122. Sumerian Man says:

    Your an idiot. Not to mention maroon. Nobody, but nobody, able to legally keep their law license, whether they be blind, cripple, deaf or dumb, ever surrenders their law license – unless it's to hide from public and private scorn, ridicule, or contempt of court or by way of falsifulcation of admission lawsuits, or death, nobody, period.

  123. I agree. Professional politicians are the source of our troubles. Most of them work at keeping their jobs, not at doing what is right for America.

  124. Bilderberg Group. You need to know who is in this group.

  125. Anywhere Obama dips his hand in Islamic countries they turn to the Muslim Brotherhood. The Egyptian leader belonging to the Brotherhood has visited the White House twice that I have read and probably more. He just forgave $1 billion in Egyptan Debt. Money hard working folks here lose that was probably borrowed from China. All of you please Google Bilderberg Group List 2012. See who is in power now we cannot trust. I know at one time the Clinton's were on this list. If these lists are true is there any wonder why Bill Clinton is stumping for Obama?

  126. Does anyone know what insurance fraud she commited? Maybe I can find that. How serious was her offense. Pretty bad if she lost her liscense over it I bet?

  127. Keep digging, patriotic revolutionaries! But get ready. In these economic, cultural & moral civil wars, I predict that there WILL be fighting in the streets– no matter who wins in November! But especially if Romney wins! Think 60's. The Left doesn't handle being-out-of-power passively (except MLK). Why do you think they fired up the Occupy proletarian peasants!? Gettin' em ready. (Some may like my Obama toons) http://edenpoliticalcartoons.com/?category_name=o

  128. George Soros for one.

  129. Probably the most influential. Never understood the relationship between Jarrett and the Obamas.

  130. Go to the Global Research website and read the article "The True Story of the Bilderbrg Group" and What They Are Planning Now.

  131. critter19930 says:

    In the interest of disclosure, I am a registered Republican who did not vote for President Obama and will not vote for him in this election. However, I find the author's conclusion to be uninformed and flawed. I am attorney who was "inactive" for 8 years. I've never had a blemish on my record nor has my integrity or ability ever been called into question. I chose to go"inactive" because, at that time, the economy was strong and I decided not to work; like President Obama, I also had planned to "retire" from the profession.

  132. critter19930 says:

    By chosing to "inactive status" with my state's bar, I wasn't required to take the costly continuing legal education classes, pay higher bar dues, be covered by malpractice insurance, etc. "Inactive" does not mean that the attorney has or may have done anything questionable; it just means that you aren't actively practicing for whatever reason. Once I decided to go back to work, I notified the bar, got put back on active status, started taking CLE courses, etc. So, if the author wants to draw his conclusion that the Obamas may be guilty of something nefarious, he needs better evidence than inactive status.

  133. Florida Jim says:

    While in Chicago attending Jeremiah Wright's Black Liberation Theological church Obama discovered that whites liked blacks that smiled and did not like angry black men like Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton or Louis Farrakhan. He has used that tactic well ever since but that does mean he actually likes whites Valerie Jarrett is ant–white her father was a communist and Jarrett is known as "Obama's second brain". We see the famous huge smile from Obama but now you will know it is artificial rather than saying something distasteful he simply flashes his fake smile and he is less threatening. Now you know!

  134. Let's face it, handlers are the new world world order, the CFR, TRILATERAL COMMISSION, BILDERBERGS, ROTHSCHILD S. HE was a foreign exchange student, getting money for his schooling in the U.S. obama was indeed born in the U.S. His mother moved to Indonesia with Barack, gave up u.s citizenship became an Indonesian citizen, attended public school system, Indonesia does not take any citizens other then it's own. Adopted by Mr seroeto, obama's Legal name is Barry seroeto not obama. That's why the sealing of his school records, the transcripts show he is a Indonesian citizen. His mother moved back never applying to become u.s citizens again, not his fault he was still a young boy, but the fact is, he is not a u.s. citizen. These are proven facts, to debunk them, you need to show his records.

  135. new world order.

  136. obama said his grandfather, not his father.

  137. The New Dealer says:

    Of course, more silliness, baseless attacks, insults, libel and slander. Any other moronic claims?

    President Obama graduated from Harvard Law School in 1991 and was admitted as a lawyer by the Supreme Court of Illinois on Dec. 17, 1991. Prior to being elected to the Illinois state Senate in 1996, he worked as a civil rights lawyer at the firm formerly known as Davis, Miner, Barnhill & Galland. Four days after Obama announced that he would run for president in February 2007, he voluntarily elected to have his law license placed on “inactive” status, according to Grogan. Then, after becoming president, he elected to change his status to “retired” in February 2009.
    Michelle Obama graduated from Harvard Law School in 1988, and was admitted as a lawyer by the Supreme Court of Illinois on May 12, 1989. Following graduation, she joined Sidley Austin, a corporate law firm in Chicago. But a few years later, in 1994, while working for the Public Allies project in Chicago, Obama voluntarily had her license placed on “inactive” status.
    But the claim that the Obamas “surrendered” their licenses to avoid ethics charges has no basis in fact. Neither of the Obamas has any public record of discipline or pending proceedings against them, according to the online public registration records of the ARDC. We also confirmed that with Grogan, who said that the Obamas were “never the subject of any public disciplinary proceedings.”
    The Obamas haven’t said exactly what prompted them to change the status of their licenses. But Grogan said that it was fairly common for lawyers who didn’t intend to continue practicing law to go on inactive status. It was actually one of the reasons, he said, that the rule was changed so that lawyers wanting to switch to inactive status no longer had to petition the Illinois Supreme Court to do so. In 2011, more than 12 percent of the state’s 87,943 registered attorneys were on inactive status (see Chart 2), according to the ARDC’s annual report for that year.
    In addition, prior to June 5, 2012, the Obamas would have been required to pay an annual fee of $289 (now $342), and take classes to satisfy the state’s Minimum Continuing Legal Education requirement, in order to keep their licenses active. Lawyers on retirement status, however, don’t have to pay an annual fee or take classes. And lawyers on inactive status also don’t have to take classes, but they do have to pay an annual fee of $105.
    Perhaps one reason for these false claims is that the online registration record used to list Michelle Obama as being “on court ordered inactive status.” But that wasn’t because of any wrongdoing. As previously mentioned, before 1999, an Illinois Supreme Court rule required active lawyers who wanted to change their registration status to do so by petitioning the court.

  141. The New Dealer says:

    Speaking of you and your father's inane remarks: President Obama graduated from Harvard Law School in 1991 and was admitted as a lawyer by the Supreme Court of Illinois on Dec. 17, 1991. Prior to being elected to the Illinois state Senate in 1996, he worked as a civil rights lawyer at the firm formerly known as Davis, Miner, Barnhill & Galland. Four days after Obama announced that he would run for president in February 2007, he voluntarily elected to have his law license placed on “inactive” status, according to Grogan. Then, after becoming president, he elected to change his status to “retired” in February 2009.
    Michelle Obama graduated from Harvard Law School in 1988, and was admitted as a lawyer by the Supreme Court of Illinois on May 12, 1989. Following graduation, she joined Sidley Austin, a corporate law firm in Chicago. But a few years later, in 1994, while working for the Public Allies project in Chicago, Obama voluntarily had her license placed on “inactive” status.
    But the claim that the Obamas “surrendered” their licenses to avoid ethics charges has no basis in fact. Neither of the Obamas has any public record of discipline or pending proceedings against them, according to the online public registration records of the ARDC. We also confirmed that with Grogan, who said that the Obamas were “never the subject of any public disciplinary proceedings.”
    The Obamas haven’t said exactly what prompted them to change the status of their licenses. But Grogan said that it was fairly common for lawyers who didn’t intend to continue practicing law to go on inactive status. It was actually one of the reasons, he said, that the rule was changed so that lawyers wanting to switch to inactive status no longer had to petition the Illinois Supreme Court to do so. In 2011, more than 12 percent of the state’s 87,943 registered attorneys were on inactive status (see Chart 2), according to the ARDC’s annual report for that year.
    In addition, prior to June 5, 2012, the Obamas would have been required to pay an annual fee of $289 (now $342), and take classes to satisfy the state’s Minimum Continuing Legal Education requirement, in order to keep their licenses active. Lawyers on retirement status, however, don’t have to pay an annual fee or take classes. And lawyers on inactive status also don’t have to take classes, but they do have to pay an annual fee of $105.
    Perhaps one reason for these false claims is that the online registration record used to list Michelle Obama as being “on court ordered inactive status.” But that wasn’t because of any wrongdoing. As previously mentioned, before 1999, an Illinois Supreme Court rule required active lawyers who wanted to change their registration status to do so by petitioning the court.

  145. I have been asking the same question for 31/2 years. Where is Congress ???

  146. CFR, ( THE WAR MACHINE). THE TRILATERAL COMMISSION ( FOREIGN ENTITY'S ) BILDERBERGS, ROTHSCHILD S ( BANKS, MONEY BEHIND THE WAR MACHINE) COMMUNIST HAVE BEEN IN THIS COUNTRY FOR 80 YEARS, 1920'S THEY INFILTRATED THE LABOR PARTY, THE DEM PARTY, LABOR TOOK ALL THE COMMUNIST AGENDA'S

  147. Don C. hayward says:

    The view that Obama is not a Marxist because he does not belive in a proletarion revolution is to deny that we have been and are in a non volent proletarian revolution characterized by the Alinsky method of collapsing the system by overload. Revolution by collapsing capitalism may not be classic Marxist but the method of revolution is Marxist ideology along with communistic overtones as well as the element of Fascism as well. Ideological purity is hardly relevant as is most labels.

  148. Anti-Obama Lawyer says:

    Says Gary North: "It was voluntary on their part in the same was that it was voluntary on Nixon’s part and Clinton’s part. If you want to avoid being disbarred, you can retire or else go inactive."

    How do you actually KNOW this Gary? Where is your evidence? "That by handing in her license she was walking away from lifetime income." Many lawyers practice less than 5 years. They burn out. Or wash out in the first few years and go into some other line of work. The women often leave to have children (sometimes called the Mommy track ). This is common. And maintaining the license is an expensive pain in the neck. Do you maintain high-maintenance state license credentials that you don't use? I wouldn't. Would you?

    Michelle went into another more lucrative line of work where she didn't need the license anyway: I refer of course to that crooked hospital administrator gig of hers. She and Barack are now both multi-millionaires from his book sales. They stand to make millions more on the lecture/guest speaker circuit when he leaves office. These days she certainly won't be looking to 'reactivate' her license that's a 'ticket to lifetime income.'

    And there are a lot of lawyers out there who will tell you that a law license is most certainly NOT a "ticket to lifetime income."

    For a 29 year old woman with a husband to quit a high-stress, high pressure career at a big law firm (Sidley Austin is AmLaw 100) isn't unheard of. I'd go so far as to say its common.

    Her dropping the license, by itself, without more evidence, doesn't show that Michelle Obama was about to be disbarred. It shows that Gary, a non-lawyer, doesn't understand how the legal profession works, although he presumes to. Most readers here, also non-lawyers, don't understand how the legal profession works.

    And why shouldn't Obama drop the license or go inactive when he becomes president? Is he supposed to take lawyer CLE classes while he is sitting in the White House? Really? (I notice that no one here, including Gary, seems to ever address this issue).

    And with all the money the Obamas now have from book sales, what would Obama do with the law license anyway? Why should we expect Obama to keep active a law license he is no longer using? Or are we to expect that while serving as President, Obama should also open a law practice on the side and enjoy his "ticket to lifetime income". Should we expect him to start taking out TV ads:

    "If you've been injured in an accident, call Barack and Michelle at the lawyer helpline right now and they'll fight for your legal rights against the insurance company."

    And if we don't expect Obama to open a law practice when he leaves office, then why precisely should we expect that he would bother maintaining a high-maintenance license that he is no longer using? Please provide an answer to this question.

    I am certainly no Obama supporter, but I have to object to all this wrongheaded ignorance on the part of non-lawyers who haven't gone through the lawyer licensing process and who really don't understand it. There's nothing nefarious about a lawyer who inactivates or otherwise gets rid of a law license. Unless the lawyer is currently employed in a position requiring the license, I would actually EXPECT the lawyer to let the license be, at the least, inactivated.

    The "prosecutor" in this case, with the evidence and arguments he has presented so far, couldn't get a jury of rabid angry dogs to convict a ham sandwich.

    Thanks again for the info.

  157. Anti-Obama Lawyer says:

    At last! Someone else on this board who understands the lawyer licensing process! You are correct. Gary is very good on many issues, but he's way, way off the mark on this matter. The same thing with so many of the other posters. They seem to "know" so much that just isn't so.

    I suspect that since people dislike Obama (I do too), they are automatically willing to believe the worst about him, and willing to spin the "evidence" in any way necessary in order to confirm their preconceived notions. Obama is probably guilty of a lot of things (e.g. Rezko) but the fact that he retired his law license certainly does not prove attorney professional misconduct.

  163. Records listed at the Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission of the Supreme Court of Illinois list her status as "voluntarily inactive and not authorized to practice law."

    It further states that Michelle license is "on court ordered inactive status."

    if there was a court order, there was a legal reason for such an order. she was given the choice to either surrender her license of be charged with something…what's the 'something'????? http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2308476/

  164. I wonder if, when the Obama's were chosen by their handlers, they had to sit down and make a list of all the things in their life they would have to pay to have hidden from the American public. The list could look like this:

    Birth certificate
    SS # card
    Selective Service
    Friends
    Family
    Flag burning party photos
    Drug use photos
    College records
    Law school records

  171. Even a dumb ass gun toting, bible reading rednect from Mississippi knows that some one does not give up a law license just for shits and giggles………….the Odamas stink to high heaven like a run over skunk. The so called "American media" does not have the balls to question them……………………….pitiful, pitiful….what ever happened to journalism and the desire for the truth?

  172. Anti-Obama Lawyer says:

    Prior to 1999 in Illinois a lawyer had to apply (make a motion) to the court to get approval to be placed on inactive status. When the court gives this permission, by granting the "motion" of the lawyer asking to be placed on inactive status, the court issues an "order" granting the motion.

    Non-Lawyers tend to get tripped up on this, but here's how it works:
    When you ask the court to make a decision on something it's usually called a "motion," and when the judge rules on the motion, he issues an "order" either granting or denying the motion.

    Example of what a typical court order might look like:
    ORDERED:

    The foregoing Motion having been heard It is hereby ORDERED that Petitioner's Motion to the placed on the Roll of Inactive Attorneys, dated xx/xx/xx, is hereby GRANTED.
    By the Court,

    [Judge's name]

    The term "Court Ordered" can sound nefarious to non-lawyers (who naturally wouldn't be familiar with the inner workings court procedure). But the fact that something is "ordered" by a court is not necessarily a sign of wrongdoing — especially if the court is "Ordering" somthing that you've specifically asked (motioned) the court to order.

  173. Anti-Obama Lawyer says:

    If we Impeach and remove Obama from office, then we get President Joe Biden. Do you consider this to be an improvement?

  174. Anti-Obama Lawyer says:

    It costs hundreds of dollars a year in fees to keep a law license active, and the lawyer must also spend many hours attending CLE classes to keep the law license active. Why should someone who is no longer working as a lawyer go through all this trouble and expense to maintain a license he is no longer using? Do you spend hundred of dollars a year and many hours on classes (that you have to pay for) in order to maintain a state license that you no longer use? Why would you? Wouldn't that be a waste of time and money? Explain to me why you think this would be a good idea.

    The fact is, lawyers who are not presently working as lawyers FREQUENTLY put their license into inactive status. In this economy, many unemployed lawyers put their license into inactive status.

    The non-lawyers posting on this board really don't seem to understand how the lawyer licensing system works. They should ask a lawyer who has been through the licensing process about it.

  175. Why not?? He was an Indonesian citizen. Most of his education/support was given by a Saudi prince. He was bought and paid for when running fur prez by none other than George Soros.

  176. Don't know if it's true or not, but I read on another website that Michelle Obama surrendered her law license voluntarily, which is very unusual for one so young. Usually an attorney would only do that if they knew there was something that is being investigated or some allegation or charge going to be filed against them and they give it up voluntarily instead of going through the process and be disbarred. In Michelle's case, the article said it had to do with an allegation of her participation in Insurance Fraud in Illinois. Of course the Press would jump right on that and investigate it as I'm sure the Illinois Bar Association has some records on it (probably sealed" ) Oh, I forgot, we don't have any Journalism or Investigative Reporters any more. That's what died when they jumped on board with the Obamas! Maybe Bob Woodward will cover that in his new book. He did a pretty good job of investigation Watergate.

  177. Maybe Barack Snr was the big kid on the other group at our estate, I was born in 1937 just a year or so younger. I seem to remember group wars between estates fought by groups of kids. Maybe that was the WWII that BHO was referring to?

  178. Sorry Nik, burying your head in the sand will not improve your view of life, just make it that much easier for the Imposter and his cronies to screw you. Sure they can get their licenses back . But based on the secrecy this pair have exhibited, the odds of them staying active for very long will not be good. I would say the odds of them being disbarred or keep their licenses would be 100 to 1 that they keeep their license and one in a million that they would not be disbarred

  179. See Saul Alinsky RULE 5: Ridicule is mans most potent weapon. There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions.

    (Pretty crude, rude and mean, huh? They want to create anger and fear. I can remember when liberals were nice people who were just wrong about most things. Now they are wrong and nasty.)

    The “progressive movement” has shown itself to be a cesspool of intolerant bullies. The trademark personal insult, name calling, ridicule, and ad hominem attacks characterize the debate style of Obama’s people That tactic has worked quite well on the ignorant and those who value feeling more than reason.

    This is not new, transformational politics. This is the rise of a New American Fascism.

  181. Believe me, I do, and how they link up with their subdivisions, the media, and the UN.

  182. According to one news resource (found it buried in the internet), she was being indicted as she was rushing to surrender her license. Once her license was surrendered, the authorities stopped the indictment process. The fraud included real estate/insurance. I think there were som other charges, but nothing was elaborated on.

  183. It won't happen quickly–obama refuses to acknowledge the name 'barry soetero' and the wife was disbarred for fraud; she just barely avoided arrest so I don't think she will be reactivating anything.

  184. That's a lot of bull hockey, New Dealer, and you know it. A lawyer never gets a "court ordered inactive status" UNLESS there has been wrong-doing by the affected attorney. Michelle obama was gulty of FRAUD that involved real estate and insurance—there were apparently other charges as well. As for the nit in the Oval Office, he is guilty of wrong-doing as well, for fraudulently withholding pertinent information from the Bar Association. It wouldn't surprise me one iota if he were also guilty of committing some criminal act that would cause him to lose his license–he certainly has committed enough criminal acts while in office.

  185. Spoken like a true lib/prog/dem troll—you can never speak your own mind, but you always resort to canned spam in generating a comment. This is the 2nd iteration of the speil given earlier; how many times have you reiterated the same on other sites? I have read your "response" on other sites, names of the submitter are different, however. You may as well give up in spewing another obammy lie—the people are on to you and your nonintellectual ninnies.

  186. IF congress had acted earlier, we could have controlled the gaffe-ridden biden. As it is, it's a bit too late to discuss impeachment for the liar in chief squatting on the Oval Office. Besides, congress refused to do anything and when the issue did arise, reid and company made sure nothing happened, making him [reid] an accessory to the crimes. The best we can do now is to have him indicted and arrested after he is voted out of office.

    Big surprise.

    Former Constitutional Law Lecturer and U.S. President Makes Up Constitutional Quotes During State Of The Union (SOTU) Address.

    Consider this:

    1. President Barack Obama, former editor of the Harvard Law Review, is no longer a "lawyer". He surrendered his license back in 2008 in order to escape charges he lied on his bar application. A "Voluntary Surrender" is not something where you decide "Gee, a license is not really something I need anymore, is it?" and forget to renew your license. No, a "Voluntary Surrender" is something you do when you've been accused of something, and you 'voluntarily surrender" your license five seconds before the state suspends you.

    2 Michelle Obama "voluntarily surrendered" her law license in 1993. after a Federal Judge gave her the choice between surrendering her license or standing trial for Insurance fraud!
    3. So, we have the first black President and First Lady – who don't actually have licenses to practice law. Facts.
    Source: http://jdlong.wordpress.com/2009/05/15/pres-barac
    4. A senior lecturer is one thing, a fully ranked law professor is another. Barack Obama was NOT a Constitutional Law Professor at the University of Chicago.

    5. The University of Chicago released a statement in March 2008 saying Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) "served as a professor" in the law school-but that is a title Obama, who taught courses there part-time, never held, a spokesman for the school confirmed in 2008.

    6. "He did not hold the title of Professor of Law," said Marsha Ferziger Nagorsky, an Assistant Dean for Communications and Lecturer in Law at the University of Chicago School of Law.

    Source: http://blogs.suntimes.com/sweet/2008/03/sweet_oba… ;

    7. The former Constitutional Senior Lecturer (Obama) cited the U.S. Constitution the other night during his State of the Union Address. Unfortunately, the quote he cited was from the Declaration of Independence … not the Constitution.

    8. The B-Cast posted the video: http://www.breitbart.tv/did-obama-confuse-the-con
    9. Free Republic: In the State of the Union Address, President Obama said: "We find unity in our incredible diversity, drawing on the promise enshrined in our Constitution: the notion that we are all created equal.

    10. Um, wrong citing, wrong founding document there Champ, I mean Mr. President. By the way, the promises are not a notion, our founders named them unalienable rights. The document is our Declaration of Independence and it reads:

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

    11. And this is the same guy who lectured the Supreme Court moments later in the same speech?

  195. Mr. North,
    Obama is Marxism American style. See: http://www.RevoltAgainstMarxism.com

    The Democrat Party does not exist. It was high-jacked by George Soros eleven years ago and the Kennedys, Clintons, Carvilles, Jesse Jackson and others have been pushed aside. It now is the Communist Party of America.
    They have a grip on our Executive Branch and intend on keeping it. They may win out yet. Obama is Commander In Chief of the greatest military in the world. Valerie Jarrett grew up in a communist family, David Axelrod grew up in a communist family, Leon Panetta, Sect. of Defense has communist associations, Van Jones is a full time communist, Rahm Emanuel is an enabler, John Podesta is will do anything for money and Andy Stern (SEIU) is lurking in the weeds! Why do you think Bill Daley left early and in a hurry?
    The Tea Party and the Internet have made the decline of Main stream media, the Democrat Party and we have an opportunity to crush the communists and the Washington "establishment" of both parties this election and future elections. We must "fundamentally change" the federal government by down sizing it by 40% and watching each elected official like a hungary hawk!
    See: http://www.USASurvival.org and please begin to talk publicly about the communists and Islamists that have infiltrated our government! Obama is only one of them.

  196. banner1939brp says:

    I'm still amazed that Obama was elected. The majority failed to investigate him prior to voting. If they had he would not have been elected. He will probably be reelected because the majority still do not know him. GOD Bless America!

  197. diamond1957 says:

    while most people think of attorneys as some sort of necessity the truth is their a parasite, they bring nothing to the table and generally take more then their share for the least amount of effort. Wherever a government is set up to install laws you'll find these parasites, soon after laws become more and more inaccessible to the average citizen's realm of understanding, a power base forms between lawyers and Judges(more lawyers), politicians some lawyers themselves, or bankers or worse professional politicians, then comes the corruption, cause money and power corrupts. When the populace "trusts" these types to do the right thing over time they weave a web that in no way will ever lead back to the culprit, will we ever have true justice ? doubtful, can this mess ever be cleaned up ? again doubtful, after two hundred plus years very doubtful. The founding fathers thought by now there would have been another revolution or more, but the system was too good to too many people, and without a class system anyone could rise up through the ranks and stick a finger in the pie.

    I PERSONALLY WOULD LIKE TO SEE ALL OF OBAMA RECORDS UNSEALED. MITT ROMNEY SHOULD BRING THIS OUT DURING A DEBATE.

NOT MY LIFE, AND KNOW NOT THE GOVERNMENT. I HOLD ALL POLITICANS RESPONSIBE FOR THE VIOLIATION OF THE FIRST ADMENDMENT. A LAW WAS PASSED BY ALL OF THE SENATE UNDER THE NOSES OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE THAT NO ONE CAN PROTEST DURING A PRESIDENT HOLDING A SPEECH OR AT A FUNCTION HE IS ATTENDING, THIS GOES FOR OTHERS ALSO. THEY HAVE VIOLATED THE FIRST ADMENDMENT. I THINK ALL LAWYER SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO SERVE ANY OFFICE. THE COMMON MAN SHOULD . THROW THEM ALL OUT AND START OVER.

  199. Is Homeland Security falsifying crime statistics for the Mexico border area?

  200. She knows where all the bodies are buried ?? She knows where all the preverbal bodies are buried ?? I really believe that BO is either at least bi-sexual. I feel she is responsible for NO Vetting being done on this pond scum..
    I remember seeing BO in Chicago (back when I used to have a job) we were walking back to the tour bus after dinner.. All these black SUV's stopped in front of a fancy restaurant and a guy got out and asked us to stop walking down the sidewalk and to cross the street.
    The Obummer clan all exited the car in the middle. My boss said "Who is that?" I said "I am afraid You are looking at the next president of the United States" he said "NO that will never happen". I said obviously you didn't hear his speech at the DNC last time.. When the security asked me to cross the street again I said "No problem .. I wouldn't spit on the guy if he was on fire and I don't want anyone thinking I associate with the likes of him" Lets face it he is a Post Turtle !

    I've read they only are reporting Mexicans crossing over, not those from the middle east, and it may seem strange, but when caught they all say their all heading to Chicago,

  202. He should be reported under the new rules related to "Stolen Valor".

  203. […] that he was innocent of obstruction of justice. Not wanting to perjure himself, he refused.READ MORE September 9th, 2012 | Tags: Law License, Lawyers, Michelle Obama, The Bar | Category: […]

    Someone holds alot of power over the Obama's and i twould probably scare us to death to find out who or what group it is. Scary thoughts isn't it?

  205. But at the DNC, she told the audience that their student loan payments were more than their mortgage…which was it Michelle? They lie so much they can’t remember them all!

  206. open minded says:

    Well i am not a lawyer but now I know how to tell when OBama is lieing and also his minions as well ( When he opens his mouth )

  207. Very strange. For several years now, I have only used my bar card to do some minor volunteer legal work, however, even if I discontinued that I would never voluntarily give up my bar card. There is something fishy about this.

    Are you mad or just pretending. Get back to TCM it is safer for you and your keeper.

  209. The New Dealer says:

    Did you finally escape from your straight jacket. After November 6th what are you going do? You could do some ritual sacrifices? How about burning a cross. That hasn't been tried this year!

  210. The Advocates says:

    I just heard the War of the Worlds rebroadcast. That's more realistic then your moronic drivel. Are you really an adult? Does your mom know you are abusing the keyboard? Better get another tool!

  211. The New Dealer says:

    She stole your brain- and won't give it back!

  212. The Advocates says:

    No evidenc of that- nothing ever mentioned- more lunatic fringe bull-tickie. Cite you source! Just more bigoted slander.

  213. The Advocates says:

    Are you a clown?

  214. The Advocate says:

    Sure he never went to the Harvard Law School, never made Law Review prexy in a blind selection. That all never happened. What drug induced dream forced you to envision that tripe? Maybe he never taught at the University of Chicago Law? Any other dope issues?

  215. Walter W. Charles says:

    That would never happen. Should anything happen to Obama where he would be incapable of performing the duties as president, Joe Biden's Secret Service detail has instructions to shoot Biden! Than would make the weepy John Boehner, the Speaker of the House, the acting president until the next election.

  216. Who cares about those fakers?

    I believe the only reason Obummer went to law school is to destroy the Constitution

    Handlers in the case of our illustrious President, probably means George Soros or his long arm.

  219. […] Nixon surrendered two licenses after he left the White House: California and the Supreme Court. He tried to surrender his third license in New York State. The state Bar’s disciplinary agency disbarred him in July of 1976. It asked him to sign a statement that he was innocent of obstruction of justice. Not wanting to perjure himself, he refused.

  220. I would not be aware that the way i ended up here, however I believed that put up was previously very good. I wouldn’t identify the person you might be but you’re going to your well-known doodlekit should you usually are not already. Regards!
