Academics, citizenship to be investigated
NEW YORK – Though he’s been in office some 16 months, one-third of his elected term, a multitude of questions still linger as to whether Barack Obama is legally eligible to serve as president of the United States.
And one organization, in Harlem, has decided to move the issue front and center by sponsoring what it calls “a real trial” it contends will “shed light” on the questions surrounding the 44th president.
Starting Friday and for a full week, the Atlah World Missionary Church will hold in essence a citizen’s court in what it bills as “the greatest trial in American history.”
Stuart Varney interviewed Congressman Paul Ryan about the current out of control spending in Washington, and his plan to rein in spending and alleviate the $108 Trillion of unfunded liabilities we are now carrying.

Elena Kagan was born in April 1960 in New York City.
A week after Ronald Reagan’s presidential victory in November 1980, Kagan, who was then a student at Princeton University, contributed a piece to the Daily Princetonian, wherein she gave voice to her angst over the apparent demise of the left. She wrote that her immediate “gut response” to Reagan’s election had been to conclude “that the world had gone mad, that liberalism was dead, and that there was no longer any place for the ideals we held or the beliefs we espoused.” Soon thereafter Kagan predicted, with a hopeful spirit, that “the next few years will be marked by American disillusionment with conservative programs and solutions, and that a new, revitalized, perhaps more leftist left will once again come to the fore.”
The following year, Kagan penned her senior thesis—titled “To the Final Conflict: Socialism in New York City, 1900-1933”—wherein she specifically thanked her brother Marc, “whose involvement in radical causes led me to explore the history of American radicalism in the hope of clarifying my own political ideas.” In the body of that work, Kagan lamented that “a coherent socialist movement is nowhere to be found in the United States”; that “Americans are more likely to speak of … capitalism’s glories than of socialism’s greatness”; that “the desire to conserve has overwhelmed the urge to alter”; that “in a society by no means perfect,” no “radical party” had yet “attained the status of a major political force”; that “the socialist movement [had] never become an alternative to the nation’s established parties”; and that the Socialist Party had “exhausted itself forever and further reduced labor radicalism in New York to the position of marginality and insignificance.” Kagan called these developments “sad” and “chastening” for “those who, more than half a century after socialism’s decline, still wish to change America.”
