    ANNE WORTHAM Anne Wortham is Associate Professor of Sociology at Illinois State University and continuing Visiting Scholar at Stanford University 's Hoover Institution. She is a member of the American Sociological Association and the American Philosophic al Association. She has been a John M. Olin Foundation Faculty Fellow, and honored as a Distinguished Alumni of the Year by the National Association for Equal Opportunity in Higher Education. In fall 1988 she was one of a select group of intellectuals who were featured in Bill Moyer's television series, "A World of Ideas." The transcript of her conversation with Moyers has been published in his book, A World of Ideas. Dr. Wortham is author of "The Other Side of Racism: A Philosophical Study of Black Race Consciousness" which analyzes how race consciousness is transformed into political strategies and policy issues. She has published numerous articles on the implications of individual rights for civil rights policy, and is currently writing a book on theories of social and cultural marginality. Recently, she has published articles on the significance of multiculturalism and Afrocentricism in education, the politics of victimization and the social and political impact of political correctness. Shortly after an interview in 2004, she was awarded tenure.
    Here is her article:
    Fellow Americans,
     Please know: I am Black; I grew up in the segregated South. I did not vote for Barack Obama; I wrote in Ron Paul's name as my choice for president. Most importantly, I am not race conscious. I do not require a Black president to know that I am a person of worth, and that life is worth living. I do not require a Black president to love the ideal of America .
     I cannot join you in your celebration. I feel no elation. There is no smile on my face. I am not jumping with joy. There are no tears of triumph in my eyes. For such emotions and behavior to come from me, I would have to deny all that I know about the requirements of human flourishing and survival - all that I know about the history of the United States of America , all that I know about American race relations, and all that I know about Barack Obama as a politician. I would have to deny the nature of the "change" that Obama asserts has come to America .
     Most importantly, I would have to abnegate my certain understanding that you have chosen to sprint down the road to serfdom that we have been on for over a century. I would have to pretend that individual liberty has no value for the success of a human life. I would have to evade your rejection of the slender reed of capitalism on which your success and mine depend. I would have to think it somehow rational that 94 percent of the 12 million Blacks in this country voted for a man because he looks like them (that Blacks are permitted to play the race card), and that they were joined by self-declared "progressive" whites who voted for him because he doesn't look like them.
     I would have to wipe my mind clean of all that I know about the kind of people who have advised and taught Barack Obama and will fill posts in his administration - political intellectuals like my former colleagues at the Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government.
     I would have to believe that "fairness" is equivalent of justice. I would have to believe that a man who asks me to "go forward in a new spirit of service, in a new service of sacrifice" is speaking in my interest.. I would have to accept the premise of a man that economic prosperity comes from the "bottom up," and who arrogantly believes that he can will it into existence by the use of government force. I would have to admire a man who thinks the standard of living of the masses can be improved by destroying the most productive and the generators of wealth.
     Finally, Americans, I would have to erase from my consciousness the scene of 125,000 screaming, crying, cheering people in Grant Park, Chicago irrationally chanting "Yes We Can!" Finally, I would have to wipe all memory of all the times I have heard politicians, pundits, journalists, editorialists, bloggers and intellectuals declare that capitalism is dead - and no one, including especially Alan Greenspan, objected to their assumption that the particular version of the anti-capitalistic mentality that they want to replace with their own version of anti-capi-talism is anything remotely equivalent to capitalism.
     So you have made history, Americans. You and your children have elected a Black man to the office of the president of the United States , the wounded giant of the world. The battle between John Wayne and Jane Fonda is over - and that Fonda won. Eugene McCarthy and George McGovern must be very happy men. Jimmie Carter, too. And the Kennedys have at last gotten their Kennedy look-a-like. The self-righteous welfare statists in the suburbs can feel warm moments of satisfaction for having elected a Black person.
     So, toast yourselves: 60s countercultural radicals, 80s yuppies and 90s bourgeois bohemians. Toast yourselves, Black America . Shout your glee Harvard, Princeton , Yale, Duke, Stanford, and Berkeley. You have elected not an individual who is qualified to be president, but a Black man who, like the pragmatist Franklin Roosevelt, promises to - Do Something! You now have someone who has picked up the baton of Lyndon Johnson's Great Society. But you have also foolishly traded your freedom and mine - what little there is left - for the chance to feel good.
    There is nothing in me that can share your happy obliviousness. God Help Us all...
    Anne Wortham

    I care not that the race card was played in this just past election. It was inevitable. That does not alter the facts in one tiny way. The man that won the election is not competent to fill the office; too inexperienced by at least half. Kudos to Wortham for the guts to speak up, and to the likes of Cosby and Freeman as well that take stances counter to those of the Sharptons of the world that can't seem to get past race.

    It's a crying shame that this letter has not or can not be vested as being the truth. I searched, and found more questions than answers. I found her email address and started to email her but, for the life of me couldn't come up with a polite respectful way to ask what I wanted to know. You see this letter hit the internet as early as 6 november 2008. Yes it has been around that long. Don't you think if the letter was truly her's that there would be some follow up to verify same. She probably has been asked over and over about this letter. I suspect she is truly tired of the whole thing. If she wrote the letter and wanted to state that loud and clear to the world she would have done so already. I suspect the letter is either fake or has resulted in dangerous threats to her well being. Either way we should leave it alone and respect her privacy and wishes to let the past be the past. JMHO of course. I will add one other thing however, I am not saying this post is an intentional misleading one. However, there are those who do post on this forum misleading stuff intentionally about serious issues. I for one never lie,..... unless I follow up at the end of the same post ... JUST KIDDING !!! THAT FOLKS IS ONE OF MY PET PEEVES.

    OK, lets take her name off it and I will claim it. Outside whether she wrote it or not, the words are still true.
    From this point forward, Anne Wortham will be known as Sniper-66. You see, "I was born a poor black child...."

    Quite possibly the Anne Wortham letter may be fact. I have done additional online research, and believe I may have found the original online poster. My email to him follows.

    LewRockwell.com
    Dear Mr. Rockwell,

    A copy of Anne Wortham's letter of 6 November 2008 "NO HE CAN'T" was posted on a forum I belong to. It spurred a great deal of lively discussion. It was posted on our forum on 7 July 2009. Obviously the letter has caused a great deal of discussion all over the internet. The detractors and naye sayers unfortunately overwhelm the discussion hands down. There are almost no supporters or sources to verify that someone by the name of Anne Wortham actually wrote the letter. It appears that your website might be the original poster online of this letter. The contact email link for her does not work. I sir am a truth seeker. I would love to be able to be able to fully support this letter if indeed it is a true letter. Can you help me? Will you help me.

    By the way, I just found your website while researching this. It appears to me as an interesting and informative website. I have bookmarked it for further web reading pleasure. I will decide to subscribe after I have followed it for a bit.

    Thank you for your time and consideration on this matter. I hope for a timely reply.

    [dunno][dunno] I hope he sheds some light on the whole issue. I will get back to you if he replys.

    If this letter is true, she did NOT "abandon" The Kenyan - she never supported him to begin with. Not all African-Americans drank the Koolade.

    As I said before, all is good. Anything to help discredit the guy living the the White House.

    Here is another one.

    While I've little interest in getting in the middle of the Obama birth issue, Paul Hollrah over at FSM did so yesterday and believes the issue can be resolved by Obama answering one simple question:

    What passport did he use when he was shuttling between
    <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:smarttags" /><st1:State w:st="on">New York</st1:State>, <st1:City w:st="on">Jakarta</st1:City>, and <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:City w:st="on">Karachi</st1:City></st1:place>?


    So how did a young man who arrived in <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:State w:st="on">New York</st1:State></st1:place> in early June 1981,
    without the price of a hotel room in his pocket, suddenly come up with the price of a round-the-world trip just a month later?

    And once he was on a plane, shuttling between <st1:State w:st="on">New York</st1:State>, <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:City w:st="on">Jakarta</st1:City></st1:place>, and
    <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:City w:st="on">Karachi</st1:City></st1:place>, what passport was he offering when he passed through Customs and Immigration?

    The American people not only deserve to have answers to these questions,
    they must have answers. It makes the debate over Obama's citizenship a rather short and simple one.


    Q: Did he travel to <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:country-region w:st="on">Pakistan</st1:country-region></st1:place> in 1981, at age 20?
    A : Yes, by his own admission.


    Q: What passport did he travel under?

    A: There are only three possibilities.
    1) He traveled with a U.S. Passport,
    2) He traveled with a British ! passport , or
    3) He traveled with an <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:country-region w:st="on">Indonesia</st1:country-region></st1:place> passport.


    Q: Is it possible that Obama traveled with a U.S. Passport in 1981?
    A: No. It is not possible. <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:country-region w:st="on">Pakistan</st1:country-region></st1:place> was on the U.S. State Department's "no travel" list in 1981.

    Conclusion:
    When Obama went to <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:country-region w:st="on">Pakistan</st1:country-region></st1:place> in 1981 he was traveling either with a British passport or an Indonesian passport.


    If he were traveling with a British passport that would provide proof
    that he was born in <st1:country-region w:st="on">Kenya</st1:country-region> on August 4, 1961, not in <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:State w:st="on">Hawaii</st1:State></st1:place> as he claims.
    And if he were traveling with an Indonesian passport that would tend to
    prove that he relinquished whatever previous citizenship he held, British or
    American, prior to being adopted by his Indonesian step-father in 1967.


    Whatever the truth of the matter,the American people need to know how he managed to become a "natural born" American citizen between 1981 and 2008.
    Given the destructive nature of his plans for America, as illustrated by his speech before Congress and the disastrous spending plan he has presented to Congress, the sooner we learn the truth of all this, the better.

    the peoples' prosecutor kneels at the throne:

    http://www.obamacrimes.info/

    For Immediate Release: - 06/11/2009
    U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder Refuses to Prosecute President Obama
    Under False Claims Act whereby Obama was accused of Defrauding the U.S. Treasury by Illegally being a U.S. Senator from Illinois as Obama is an Illegal Alien, not a U.S. Citizen
    Berg brought action against Obama and after months of delay Holder’s Staff refused to investigate
    Berg raised issue of “Conflict of Interest” and why Discovery was “not” turned over
    and Judge Roberts Dismissed case against Obama on June 9th
    obamacrimes.com is the web site for the truth about Obama
    (Washington, DC – 06/11/2009) - Philip J. Berg, Esquire, the first Attorney who filed suit against Barack H. Obama challenging Senator Obama's lack of Constitutional "qualifications/eligibility" to serve as President of the United States and his cases that are still pending, Berg vs. Obama [2 cases – 1 under seal] and Hollister vs. Soetoro a/k/a Obama, et al announced today that United States Attorney General Eric Holder refused to prosecute President Barack H. Obama for Obama illegally running for and holding the U.S. Senate seat from Illinois because he was Constitutionally ineligible to be a U.S. Senator.
    A False Claims Act [FCA] case is when a person has knowledge that another party has obtained money from the Government based on a false claim. In this instance, in order to be a United States Senator, you must be a United States Citizen for nine [9] years. Obama is not a United States Citizen and therefore, usurped the Office of U.S. Senator for Illinois and obtained payment from the U.S. Department of the Treasury based on his false statements that he was a U.S. Citizen and constitutionally eligible to serve the position of United States Senator.
    Berg said, “What a miscarriage of justice! At a closed door hearing on June 9, 2009 because of the status of the “sealed case,” sealed because of the nature of the case, that being a “Qui Tam” or FCA [False Claims Action] case, the Attorney General through his representatives refused to proceed with the prosecution of Obama for fraudulently serving as a U.S. Senator from Illinois for 3 ½ years. [FCA cases are usually used in Medicare/Medicaid fraud cases]”
    Berg continued, “I presented overwhelming evidence that Obama was ineligible to be a U.S. Senator and therefore, Obama fraudulently received a salary and benefits of nearly $1 Million Dollars.
    Since the case was ‘Dismissed with Prejudice’ it is now ‘Unsealed’ and the record is open for review. The case, Berg vs. Obama, U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, No. 08-cv-1933 and is available on Pacer or our website, obamacrimes.com. I, Phil Berg, will be Appealing this case !”
    Berg said, “During oral argument, I raised the issue of a ‘Conflict of Interest’ as Attorney General Holder’s boss is the President Barack H. Obama, so how could they properly review this case? I suggested the appointment of a Special Prosecutor. I also raised the issue that any Discovery used in the Government’s decision to have the case dismissed, which was secured by the U.S. Department of Justice and U.S. Attorney General’s Office should be turned over to me as the Relator, however, no Discovery was turned over.”
    Article II, Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution entrusts the Executive, which includes the United States Attorney General, with duty to take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed. Berg stated, “I am very disappointed that U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder through his Staff has failed to uphold his duties.”
    Berg concluded, "I am not giving up and am continuing my legal fight to prove Obama is not constitutionally qualified/eligible to be President of the United States. I am proceeding for the 305 + million people in 'our' U.S.A., for 'our' forefathers and for the 1.5 million men and women that have died defending our Constitution in the many wars over the years and the 1.5 million men and women who were injured in those wars,"
    * * * * * * *
    The following is an update on my three [3] pending cases regarding my challenge to Obama's lack of qualifications/eligibility to be President.
    As you know, I was the first to legally raise the issue - having filed my lawsuit on August 21, 2008, before the DNC Convention.
    Status of Cases:
    Berg vs. Obama, Third Circuit Court of Appeals No. 08 – 4340
    Briefs have been filed by all parties.
    This is case that was dismissed in U.S. District Court, Eastern District of PA
    Judge Surrick dismissed for lack of "standing" by Philip J. Berg
    This is case that I bypassed Third Circuit to U.S. Supreme Court - where U.S. Supreme Court denied several Injunctions and to hear case.
    However, case is still alive in the Third Circuit.
    Oral argument is tentatively scheduled for September/October 2009.
    Berg vs. Obama, U.S. District Court, Case No. 08-cv-1933
    Case originally filed under seal on 11/07/08. The Government moved for the dismissal of the case that was granted on June 10, 2009 at which time Judge Roberts ordered the case unsealed.
    Case will be appealed.
    Hollister vs. Soetoro a/k/a Obama,
    U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, No. 09-5080
    U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, No. 08-cv-02254
    This is the case of retired Air Force Colonel Hollister who is on lifetime Presidential recall.
    Hollister needs to know if recalled by Soetoro/Obama - must he obey an Order by legal President or disobey the illegal Order by a Constitutionally ineligible/unqualified "Usurper" President.
    Case was dismissed and Sanction of “Reprimand” imposed on our local attorney.
    Appeal has been filed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. We are waiting for the briefing schedule so we can file our opening briefs.

    (Lafayette Hill, PA – 06/09/2009) - Philip J. Berg, Esquire, the first Attorney who filed suit against Barack H. Obama challenging Senator Obama's lack of Constitutional "qualifications/eligibility" to serve as President of the United States and his cases that are still pending, Berg vs. Obama [2 cases – 1 under seal] and Hollister vs. Soetoro a/k/a Obama, et al announced today that he had filed a lawsuit against Orly Taitz for her unprofessional and unlawful tactics by disseminating birth dates and Social Security Numbers and other vicious lies to harm innocent people.

    Berg said, “Orly Taitz, Esquire must be disbarred ! Orly has been grabbing the headlines, but doing disservice to the millions who want Obama to prove he is constitutionally eligible/qualified to be President of the United States.

    Presently Orly has only one [1] case pending and in my opinion, not very strong and definitely not on point. On the other hand, I [Berg] have three [3] lawsuits pending, all in Federal Court, two [2] in the Appellate Courts [Third Circuit – argument was scheduled end of May 2009, but now the earliest it will be heard is September or October of 2009 on the issue of ‘standing’; the other in the District of Columbia Court of Appeals (Hollister case)]. The 3<sup>rd</sup> case is ‘under seal.’”

    Berg continued, “Orly has gone too far by e-mailing the Social Security number of my assistant, Lisa. By doing so, with the help of Neil Sankey, Sankey Investigating, Inc. and the Sankey Firm, Orly has violated State [California] and Federal laws and has admitted to the mass e-mailing distribution to tens of thousands of individuals. After suit was filed against Orly and other Defendants, Orly’s Answer was due May 26, 2009, however, it was not filed. I requested Default to be entered against Orly and other Defendants for their failure to Answer the Complaint. The Court entered the Default on May 27, 2009.”

    Berg stated, “On or about May 28, 2009, Orly faxed a one [1] page Motion to Set Aside the Default entered on May 27, 2009 against her and Defend our Freedoms Foundation, Inc. I, Berg, filed our Response in Opposition to Orly’s Request to Set Aside the Default on June 8<sup>th</sup> and can be found on my website at obamacrimes.com.

    Neil Sankey appeared on Plains Radio Network on May 28, 2009 with a made up story that Lisa Ostella sent him emails and asked him to investigate my assistant, Lisa and me. This was a completely fabricated story. Neil Sankey and Orly conspired and not only altered emails sent from Lisa Ostella, they created emails using Lisa Ostella’s email address, which Lisa Ostella did not have any knowledge of, never gave any permission for anyone to use her email address, never gave authorization to draft emails on her behalf, she never drafted the emails nor did she send them. In so doing, Neil Sankey and Orly altered and forged documents (emails) of Lisa Ostella. On May 31, 2009, Orly posted the altered and forged emails on her website with a statement that Lisa Ostella sent them to Neil Sankey, knowing the information to be completely false.”

    Berg continued, “We are fighting to uphold our Constitution and the laws of our Nation. Neil Sankey and Orly are not helping our cause by degrading those working so hard to learn the truth and breaking the very laws we are desperately trying to uphold.”

    Berg said, “Our focus should be on whether our President, Barry Soetoro a/k/a Barack H. Obama is constitutionally eligible/qualified to serve as the United States President, as it appears he is not a “natural born” United States citizen and eligible pursuant to the United States Constitution.”

    Berg requested, “All those that want to prove that Obama is constitutionally qualified, please send letters and emails to the White House requesting that the President of the United States show his credentials proving he is in fact a ‘natural born’ United States citizen and eligible to serve as our President.”

    Berg continued, “The Obama candidacy is the biggest ‘HOAX’ perpetrated on the citizens of the United States in 230 years, since our nation was established. Obama must be legally removed from office.
    I believe that 15 to 20 million people are aware of the Obama 'HOAX,' and we must make 75 to 100 million people aware. When people are made aware of the Obama 'HOAX,' that Obama has not proven he is constitutionally 'qualified/eligible' to be President; that Obama has not produced his original (vault version) 'Birth Certificate;' that Obama has not produced legal documents to show he legally changed his name from his 'adopted' name of 'Barry Soetoro' from Indonesia; they will demand Obama be removed from the Office of President of the United States."

    Berg concluded, "I am proceeding for the 305 + million people in 'our' U.S.A., for 'our' forefathers and for the 1.5 million men and women that have died defending our Constitution in the many wars over the years and the 1.5 million men and women who were injured in those wars, with our legal fight to prove that Obama is not constitutionally qualified/eligible to be President."

    * * * * * * *

    The following is an update on my three [3] pending cases regarding my challenge to Obama's lack of qualifications/eligibility to be President.

    Also, I am preparing to file a 4th case - Quo Warranto [challenge person in office - that does not meet the qualifications].
