3. So, we have the first black President and First Lady -

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-IL.) "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

7. The former Constitutional senior lecturer cited the US
Constitution during his first State of the Union Address.
Unfortunately, the quote he cited was from the Declaration
of Independence . not the Constitution.
B-Cast posted the video:
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. 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. President Obama then lectured the Supreme Court moments
later in the same speech

I have checked the ARDC website and found this to be true.
How could we have elected a man that is an enigma wrapped
in a conundrum.
Pres. Barack Obama - Editor of the Harvard Law Review- Has
No Law License???
May 15, 2009 by Johnny
I saw a note slide across the #TCOT feed on Twitter last
night that mentioned Michelle Obama had no law license. This
struck me as odd, since (a) she went to school to be a lawyer,
and (b) she just recently held a position with the University
of Chicago Hospitals as legal counsel - and that's a pretty
hard job to qualify for without a law license.
But being a licensed professional myself, I knew that every
state not only requires licensure, they make it possible to
check online the status of any licensed professional. So I
did, and here's the results from the ARDC Website:
She "voluntarily surrendered" her license in 1993.
Let me explain what that means. 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.
Here's an illustration: I'm a nurse. At various times in
my 28 years of nursing I've done other things when I got burned
out; most notably a few years as a limousine driver; even
an Amway salesman at one point. I always, always renewed my
nursing license - simply because it's easier to send the state
$49.00 a month than to pay the $200, take a test, wait six
weeks, etc., etc. . . I've worked (recently) in a Nursing
Home where there was an 88 year old lawyer and a 95 year old
physician. Both of them still had current licensures as well.
They would never DREAM of letting their licenses lapse. I
happen to know there is currently in the Indiana State Prison
in Michigan City Indiana an inmate who is a licensed physician,
convicted of murder when he chased the two burglars, who entered
his home and terrorized his family, into the street and killed
them. (And I can't say I blame him for that, either.) This
physician still has an active medical license and still sees
patients, writes prescriptions, etc. all from inside the prison.
And he renews his medical license every two years, too.
I tried looking up why she would "Voluntarily surrender"
her license, but Illinois does not have its 1993 records online.
But when I searched for "Obama", I found this:
"Voluntarily retired" - what does that mean? Bill
Clinton hung onto his law license until he was convicted of
making a false statement in the Lewinsky case and had to "Voluntarily
Surrender" his license too.
This is the former editor of the Harvard Law Review who doesn't
seem to give a hoot about his law license.
Something else odd; while the Search feature brings up the
names, any searches for the Disciplinary actions ends quickly.
As in, Too Quickly. Less than a half-second quickly on a
Search Engine that can take five seconds to Search for anything.
As in, "there's a block on that information" kind
So we have the first Lawyer President and First Lawyer Lady
- who don't actually have licenses to practice law.
There's more to this story, I'm sure. I'll let you know when
I find it..
