Annals of Obama Derangement: Larry Klayman

WorldNetDaily's resident sue-happy defamer is driven around the bend -- and toward clear acts of libel -- when it comes to President Obama.

By Terry Krepel
Posted 10/4/2012

For a guy who makes his (meager) living these days unsuccessfully suing people for defamation and generally being a failure as a lawyer, Larry Klayman shows surprisingly little reticence in defaming people.

Case in point: President Obama. Klayman devotes much of his WorldNetDaily columns to hurling smears and falsehoods at Obama -- to the point that the president may very well have an excellent chance of winning a libel and defamation lawsuit against Klayman, should he decide to pursue one.

For instance, take Klayman's May 12 column, which contains the following actionable claims:

  • He twice refers to Obama as the "mullah in chief," despite the fact that Obama is not a Muslim.
  • He falsely accuses Obama of personally having "disclosed that so-called double agent CIA operatives infiltrated al-Qaida and uncovered an airline bomb plot." There is no evidence to support this claim.
  • He insinuates that Obama is gay because he he endorsed gay marriage, writing: "If there is any humor to this – which there is not – one could ask, 'What’s a guy to do if he is married to Michelle?'"

Klayman kept it up in his May 25 column:

Third, Obama has harmed our national security by illegally disclosing classified information about our intelligence-gathering methods, sources and capabilities. In recent front-page New York Times stories I have previously written about, Obama had his minions at the CIA, National Security Agency and Defense Department criminally leaked not only how we gather intelligence on the Iranian nuclear program, but also our war plans if the United States is drawn into a conflict between Israel and the mullahs should a unilateral Israeli attack of the nuclear facilities prove necessary.

There was no evidence at the time that Obama personally played any role in making such disclosures, and Klayman did not provide any.

You'd think a guy with such a record of legal failure would be much more careful in choosing his words. Apparently not.

That meltdown-prone level of anti-Obama bile inside Klayman, it's no surprise to learn he's a birther as well -- indeed in that same May 25 column, Klayman declared that it's an "unlikelihood" that Obama was born in Hawaii and that his birther certificate was "doctored." He also asserted that "Obama was not eligible to be president of the United States" because "As provided for in the Constitution, only a “natural born citizen” can become president – that is, someone who is sired by both an American citizen mother and father."

Klayman repeated that claim in his Aug. 31 WND column, which begins:

The Constitution is as clear as the nose on your face. According to Article II, Section 1, to be eligible to be president or vice president of the United States one must be a “natural born citizen.” That means born in the United States to two American citizen parents.

In fact, as even WND has admitted, the Constitution does not define what "natural born citizen" means, and the Supreme Court has never weighed in on the issue as it applies to presidential eligibility. Thus, what Klayman is stating about the definition of "natural born citizen" is an opinion, not a fact. His apparent inability to tell the two apart is further evidence of his incompetence as an attorney.

Since this is Klayman, he segues to making even more libelous attacks on the president:

Obama can claim all he wants to be a patriotic Christian American, but anyone with half a brain and who is not comatose knows better. He is the Muslim version of the “Manchurian Candidate,” in effect an Islamic mole who – aided and abetted by communists, socialists, radical gays, lesbians and feminists, Muslims, white-haters and others on the subversive fringe of American society – defrauded his way into the White House. As a result, after four years of what in effect is Obama’s “reign of terror,” we find ourselves not only on the precipice of economic disaster, but living the nightmare of having a charlatan “Muslim” socialist impostor as the head of the greatest nation on earth. The framers are more than turning in their hallowed graves.

Klayman also asserts that Obama "claims falsely that he was born here," which is true only if you ignore all the evidence to the contrary, which WND does.

Those are just the most egregious examples -- Klayman has been using his WND column to spew a steady stream of Obama derangement. Here are some examples from 2012 alone, which are heavy on calling Obama "anti-Semitic" and accusing him of treason:

Second, Romney must stress the fact that Obama is ineligible to be president because he is likely Kenyan-born and not a natural born citizen – meaning that both of his parents were not U.S. citizens at his birth. The framers put this requirement into the Constitution to avoid the harmful foreign influences we are now living through with Obama. Romney must take the gloves off and pound away at this legitimate eligibility issue, which underscores, reinforces and explains why Obama’s actions have been un-American and severely harmful to the United States. -- Sept. 14

If Newsweek can dub President Barack Hussein Obama, as it did on a recent cover, “the first gay president” because of his affinity for gays and their agenda, he deserves even more the mantle of “the first Muslim president” for the same reason. -- July 13

* * *

Then there is the regime of Barack Hussein Obama. Having defrauded American voters that he is eligible to be president, given that he is not a “natural born citizen” as required by the Constitution, for “good measure” he spent the next four years not only foisting his evil socialist, anti-Christian, anti-Semitic, pro-Muslim agenda on our nation and Israel, but also compromising the national security of both countries. His latest criminal atrocities include, but are not limited to, releasing into the public domain highly classified national security information about how we spy on Iranian nuclear sites, select drone targets to eliminate terrorists, how we killed Osama bin Laden, how we used cyber-warfare to attack Iranian atomic bomb plants, how we plan to wage war against Iran if we are drawn into a unilateral Israeli attack on the nuclear bomb plants and a host of other outrageous national security breaches and acts (such as not destroying the drone that fell into Iranian hands), which were intended or have the affect of aiding and abetting foreign enemies of the United States. These treasonous acts – undertaken not just to boost his re-election prospects but obviously also to help his Muslim brothers in Iran and elsewhere – are so severe that even hapless and two-faced members of the Washington establishment club, like Republican Sen. John McCain, have been forced, thanks to my and your outcries, to finally speak up in protest – having been largely silent for the better part of Obama’s presidency. Obama’s treasonous acts are the most serious and damaging in American history! -- June 17

Obama’s failure to act on this real threat and his support of other radical Muslim interests, such as the ascension of the granddaddy of terrorist groups the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and throughout the Middle East, is perceived by many to be the result of Obama’s own conflicted Muslim roots – his Kenyan father having been a Muslim who had to be deported from the United States. Obama’s actions and words over the last three and a half years have supported this view, and now even many leftist Hollywood Jews, who previously voted for him, believe he is a not too latent anti-Semite bent not just on harming the interests of Israel but also American Jews and evangelical Christians in general. -- June 1

The French delicacy of foie gras – light brown goose liver served in many culinary forms – should become the official food, if not symbol, of President Barack Hussein Obama’s 2012 campaign to win re-election to the presidency. -- May 25

With government corruption and treasonous acts running rampant, particularly with regard to President Obama and his administration, many have asked what ordinary American citizens can do to legally mete out justice. Short of violent revolution, there is only one strong legal mechanism that can be invoked. That is the so-called “citizens grand jury,” by which Americans themselves can enforce the law.

-- April 20

* * *

Obama’s vocal and loud endorsement of Trayvon Martin as a boy he would like to have sired sent a message to the nation and the world – much like his offensive threatening statements about the sovereignty of the Supreme Court – that he does not respect the rule of law and that he, as the nation’s fuehrer, can decide for the rest of us who is guilty and who is innocent. And, true to his black-Muslim leanings and associations, President Obama refused to, as is the correct approach, keep his mouth shut so as not to influence law-enforcement authorities or any eventual jury. Instead, he improperly used his office to judge for himself, and then broadcast, who caused the sad death of this young boy.


So, once again, Obama has shown his true colors; he is a racist, black-Muslim sympathizer and Jew-and-white hater himself. For this, with all of the whoredom on display in the last weeks, he wins the prize for the biggest and most evil whore of all. -- April 6

Now, almost a decade later, our government, as well as our society as a whole, has grown even more corrupt than even during the Clinton years. The “regime” of President Barack Hussein Obama – who defrauded the American people to elect him president, his having taken advantage of the people’s political reaction to eight years of a disastrous and failed George W. Bush presidency – is more than a threat to our Judeo-Christian heritage and American way of life. Obama is, plain and simple, the black communist equivalent of the Manchurian candidate, an evil force who is bent on destroying our beloved nation and our religious freedoms. It is no coincidence that Hillary Clinton is his secretary of state. -- March 30

In the last weeks in particular – following the visit of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to the White House to discuss the Iranian nuclear threat – Barack Hussein Obama has stepped up his “Muslim crusade” to discredit the Jewish state’s assessment that Iran is close to acquiring weapons of mass destruction and that a pre-emptive joint military strike is now necessary. In this way, Obama hopes to justify his refusal to join with Israel to use force to remove these nuclear weapons before they are targeted against the Jewish state, the United States and our European allies to further Tehran’s Islamic revolution. Outrageously, in so doing Obama’s “evil anti-Semitic and anti-Christian express” has committed additional acts of treason against the United States, seriously compromising our national security.


Our so-called president must not only be quickly removed from office by all legal means, but he must also be prosecuted for treason. If the Justice Department or a military tribunal won’t act, then the “citizen’s grand jury,” which the Supreme Court has acknowledged exists in principle in the Fifth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, must now be taken out of the legal closet to indict Obama for these treasonous acts.

The nation’s national security and well-being depend on quick and forceful justice for this truly evil president and commander in chief – particularly since time is short with regard to Islamic Iran and its nuclear plans to annihilate Israel and to kill other infidels, meaning Jews and also Christians worldwide. -- March 23

Months ago I wrote a column about Obama entitled “A president of ‘His People,’ not ‘We the People.’” This characterization has certainly been borne out even more with the Bell revelations and the president’s penchant to further the Pigford fraud.

The Breitbart videos linking Derrick Bell to Obama, showing the president as a Harvard law student leader asking his black compatriots to open their hearts and minds to this racist and anti-Semite, and then hugging Bell, more than unmasks who Obama really is. Whether it is Pigford black reparations or his disdain if not latent hatred for the Jewish state of Israel and his endorsement of the Ground Zero mosque – or a host of other similar outrages toward whites, Jews and Christians – this president certainly does not represent “We the People” but instead “his own people.”

That is why we must use all legal means to remove Obama and his racist, anti-Semitic comrades from access to the White House, and we must do so in short order before the country devolves further into a racial and religious civil war, and our nation and Israel are destroyed, by virtue of the president’s actions. -- March 16

* * *

Sure, President Barack Hussein Obama – a Muslim sympathizer not coincidentally born to a socialist Muslim Kenyan father – has intentionally been negligent, along with his Democratic comrades, in allowing this cancer to grow to the point where it not only is an imminent threat to Israel, but also Europe and the United States – but Republicans as well bear a significant responsibility for the mess we now find ourselves in.


Obama is a traitor, but there has been no political counterweight to his treachery from the other party. We no longer have a republic, but just a bunch of dangerous political hacks from both sides of the aisle occupying time, space and “growing fat” in Washington, D.C., at our expense! -- March 9

* * *

In conclusion, you probably thought that Larry Klayman was finally writing a column devoid of politics. But sorry to disappoint! As you may know, President Barack Hussein Obama has openly admitted that he too is addicted to his Blackberry and had one made that is secure from wiretapping or interception by adversaries foreign or domestic. While this may help explain the president’s poor performance in office – apparently he is distracted and unable to concentrate, like the nation’s youth – at least his smart phone insures his privacy. Not so for the rest of us; the government and other entities can easily and do tap into your communications. -- Feb. 10

* * *

But we as humans, being the revolutionaries Jesus wants us to be, must do all that we can to save our promised land. We cannot allow our so-called president, Barack Hussein Obama – with his now not too latent anti-Semitic and pro-Muslim policies and actions implemented by the equally ethically compromised Hillary Clinton as secretary of state – to join with radical Islamists to destroy our land of Israel. -- Jan. 29

* * *

Fourth, while not likely to be Iran – which has likely bribed Hussein and Ms. Hillary to avoid military action to remove the regime in Tehran – the administration will try to create a “wag the dog” scenario, similar to what the Clintons did in the runup to the elections in 1996. A good little international crisis will serve them well in helping to convince voters that “now” is not a good time for change. In effect, Hussein will convert his “schtick” from the “change” candidate of 2008 to the “we cannot afford change” candidate in 2012.


So we come back to square one again. “We the People” must do everything within our lawful powers to remove Obama and his comrades from office; be that enmeshing them in an impeachable or peaceful civil disobedience that makes even Ghandi proud. Yes, we are in a revolutionary state, and as it stands today, the ballot box is not likely to remove the most disloyal, anti-American, pro-Muslim, anti-Semitic, anti-Christian, socialistic and destructive president in our country’s brief history. And, if Hussein is not bad enough, think of the likelihood that he will be joined by the criminal Ms. Hillary and backstage by another felon, her lovely hubby Bill, in “ruling” – and ultimately in destroying – our beloved country for another four years! God save the republic! -- Jan. 20

Remember, not only has WND hired Klayman to write a column, it has hired Klayman to represent WND in court, in lawsuits against Esquire magazine and the White House correspondents Association -- both of which were swiftly tossed out of court.

It's such a perversely symbiotic relationship that it's clear these two seem to deserve each other.
