Why our president “gave up” his law license
Lawyers: Why our president “gave up” his law license. And so did his “lawyer” wife, too. THIS should be a real eye-opener. .And every statement is backed up by a link to verification. Make sure this makes the rounds before election day.
I knew they had both lost their law license, but I didn’t know why until I read this. This is legit. It can be confirmed at https://www.iardc.org (Illinois Attorney Registration And Disciplinary Committee). It’s the official arm of lawyer discipline in Illinois, and they are very strict and mean as hell. (Talk about irony.) Even I, at the advanced age of almost 65, maintain my law license (at the cost of approximately $600/year) that I worked so hard and long to earn.
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-barack-obama-editor-of-the-Harvard-law-review-has-no-law-license/
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:
7. The former Constitutional Senior Lecturer (Obama) cited the US. Constitution during his State of the Union Address. Unfortunately, the quote he cited was from the Declaration of Independence, not the Constitution.
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. Wrong citing, wrong founding document. 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? When you are a phony it’s hard to keep facts straight. Keep this moving — educate others. It is important to forward to your entire address book. Do it now if you care about this country.
Pass this along please – Everyone should know just why Barack and Michel no longer have their law license!!!!!!!
