"Stunner! Supremes to give eligibility case another look
Challenge to Obama getting 2nd conference before court
In a stunning move, the U.S. Supreme Court has scheduled another "conference" on a legal challenge to Barack Obama's eligibility to occupy the Oval Office, but officials there are not answering questions about whether two justices given their jobs by Obama will participate.
The court has confirmed that it has distributed a petition for rehearing in the case brought by attorney John Hemenway on behalf of retired Col. Gregory Hollister and it will be the subject of a conference on March 4.
It was in January that the court denied, without comment, a request for a hearing on the arguments. But the attorney at the time had submitted a motion for Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan, who were given their jobs by Obama, to recuse.
Should Obama ultimately be shown to have been ineligible for the office, his actions, including his appointments, at least would be open to challenge and question.
At the time, the Supreme Court acknowledged the "motion for recusal" but it changed it on official docketing pages to a "request." And it reportedly failed to respond to the motion.

Question is, will enough of them actually agree to hear it this time and will Sotomayor and Kagan recuse themselves?
Sotomeyer and Kagen are just about as good in quantum physics as they are in law.
Bimbo is as bimbo does....er bimbos is as bimbos are.
Every law he’s signed,
Every appointment he’s made,
Every Executive Order he’s issued,
Everything he’s done in office is on the line..........
But wait...we need a wise female Latino...

Some time ago... maybe a year ago, I predicted that a bunch of people were going to have to die as the result of this fraudulent president’s incompetence and anti-American agenda before anyone in a position of power would have the balls enough to stand up for the constitution.
I think a lot of people now are starting to realize that if something isn’t done soon, that people WILL die.
I wonder if it’s too late though.
that’s a nice logo.
that’s a nice logo.
We have a wide female Latino..
Under the Constitution a requirement to become POTUS:
Requires “Both Parents” must be Citizens of the United States to be considered a Natural-Born Citizen!
Mr Obama has stated in his book Dreams of My Father & several times at speaking engagements , that his “father” was a Kenyan with British Citizenship!
Mr Obamas........ Legal.......... father was a “Kenyan with British Citizenship”.
Under Vattels Law of Nations ( which our Founding Fathers used in defining Natural-Born Citizen). The Country of the Fathers is therefor that of the Children; and these become true citizens by their Tacit consent.
I say,that, in order to be of the country, it is necessary that a person be born of a father who is a Citizen; for, if he is born there of a foreigner, it will only be the place of his birth and Not his Country!!
Also, as a Kenyan native, Barack Obama Sr. was a British subject whose citizenship status was goverened by The British Nationality Act of 1948. That same act goverened the status of Obama Sr.s Children.
British Nationality Act of 1948 (Part II, Section 5):
Subject to provisions of this section, a person born after the commencement of the Act shall be a citizen of the United Kingdom and Colonies by descent if his father is a citizen of the United Kingdom at the time of the birth.
In other words, at the time of his birth, Barack Obama Jr. was a citizen of the United Kingdom and Colonies (or the UKC) by virtue of being born to a .....”Legal”..... father who was a citizen of UKC.
Therefore, Barack Obama Jr. is ..........Not............ eligible to be POTUS.
It is time for Congress to stand-up for the Constitution!!
Mr Obama Needs to be removed from the White House!!
Nancy Pelosi realized that Mr Obama did Not meet the requirements to become POTUS so; she notorized & signed 2 different affidavits certifying that Mr
Obama was elegible to be nominated by the Democrat Party. The only State that had the words Certified under the Constitution was the State of Hawaii.... All other states
received the second affidavit that said he was eligible to be nominated but; the words Certified Under the Constitution were eliminated.....
This is Fraud & Corruption!!
Mr Obama knows that he did Not meet the requirements to become POTUS !!

The Media, Congress & the Supreme Court need to get their heads out of the sand & face the Facts
Mr. Obama Is Ineligible to be POTUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Court after court denying fair and just hearing of these cases is causing the average American to distrust the nation’s court system. It is already a given that the 9th Circuit Court is liberal without a glint of question. We, the people, might as well live in a banana republic while politically appointed judges make activist decisions and spit on the US Constitution while they do it. Where are patriotic judges who respect our nation and everything its founders stood for? The question asked in these cases is Constitutional and bypassing that document to seat a leader of our land is tyranny and malfeasance of the highest degree at the very least.
Can someone tell me if this is the first time Barry Soetoro and not Barack Obama was sued? Or if the fact that a sitting President has an alias and why? Or why all of his records are sealed?
Doesn’t the chief justice alone make the decision on which cases will be heard?
Thanks! I stole it fair and square.
Keeping fingers crossed.
Drum roll please.....
There are not the collective stones in this Supreme Court to find the obvious. Maybe they think they can put the issue to rest by having a hearing and denying it. It won’t die, but I have zero faith the Supreme Court will do the right thing. For the record, I had an overwhelming suspicion AZ would fold on the Eligibility issue, and they did.
All the powers that be are STILL scared witless [if you get my drift] of the rabidly PC MSM, and the full frontal, unrelenting, brutal, savage, barbaric and underhanded racist assault the MSM would launch on anybody who dared question the eligibility of our first ‘black’ president.
Sotomayor, Kagan, Obama and Holder have the same knowledge of the the Constitutionh and Juris Prudence as my dead dog. (note my dog has been dead for many years).
I am torn on this, if he is ever NOT found to be eligible what will happen next. Yes, some good things, we no longer have BO as President. All laws he signed and all appointments he did are null and void. Turmoil. Who IS the President? John McCain? Joe Biden? The Constitution sets forth the succession, but not if a usurper takes over.
People voted for a non-eligible ticket
Default to the only eligible but only if the Electoral College is used, then it is John McCain.
I think riots would become the normal here.
The brain damage that makes them would drive them insane.
And if they decide Joe Biden is POTUS? Oh my, that would be one big idiot in charge. He wouldn’t get the OBAMACARE Bill, and would NOT get re-elected, that is for sure.
No. Four justices have to agree to hear the case. In legal circles, it's known as "the rule of four".
While the CJ does enjoy some administrative privileges as being recognized as the most senior Justice, his only substantive power comes from deciding who will write the majority opinion, and that only happens when the CJ is holding with the majority.
Case motion for recusal of Sotomayor and Kagan "Despite a vigorous campaign that he has conducted to make 'unthinkable' the very idea of raising the issue of his eligibility under the Constitution to 'be' president the issue has not gone away," Hemenway said.
"Instead it has steadily grown in the awareness of the public. Should we be surprised that he shows no respect for the constitutional rule of law? What else would we expect?" he wrote.
The U.S. Supreme Court today did not respond to WND questions today about whether the two justices would participate in the conference, and there was no response to WND's request that questions be forwarded to the justices themselves about their plans.
"The real question here is one of getting members of the judiciary to take seriously the oath that they swore to protect and preserve the Constitution," Hemenway wrote in his petition for rehearing. "To continue to avoid the issue will destroy the constitutional rule of law basis of our legal system when it is under vigorous assault as surely as if the conscious decision were made to cease preserving and protecting our founding charter."
That the justices are "avoiding" the Obama issue already has been confirmed by one member of the court. It was last year when Justice Clarence Thomas appeared before a U.S. House subcommittee that the issue arose.

Whatever happens cant be worse than the way it is now. We might have riots but thats better than a violent revolution.
Has anyone EVER heard the State Run Media refer to the prior names, and subsequent alisases, of The Messiah?
I love the idea that Barry Soetoro is even mentioned, let alone identified !
Nothing “stunning” about this at all. The petitoner filed a request for rehearing, so it automatically gets set for another conference.
When this case was first before SCOTUS, the Government waived its right to respond to the Petition, and the Court didn’t ask the Government for a response. That means that none of the 9 justices thought the case should be heard. Expect nothing different this time around. The petition for rehearing will be denied without comment and without any recorded dissent.
IIRC, 3 of 5 judges in a review committee must agree to take the case. (I could be wrong, though)
I could see the weasel McCain doing something like re-signing all the laws Obama signed as a show of solidarity or something of the sort if it came to that. He’s already said that the thinks Obama is a pretty good president.
It’ll go to Biden. Might be different if McCain was, well, you know - popular.
a “conference” is all 9...and ya need 4 votes to proceed to hearing. So far, have only been able to get 3 votes. This is big because there is a request for the two dufus broads appt by dunham to recuse themselves. If that happens you would then need 3 votes to proceed to a hearing!!!!
I wonder, if he’s found not qualified, will the MSM issue apologies for their portrayal of us as crazy “birthers”?
Nah...I guess not.
Yep, I was wrong.
I speak to people all the time that are not political junkies at all that all think Obama is hiding something. His grades,his name,his alias. People say nothing would be done because of the very crisis it would cause. But I think the crisis of Obama within itself is far worse.
Because it is unprecedented does not mean it shall not happen.
When I first saw the Headline, I thought it might have to do with the Motown Black History Month Extravaganza that we taxpayers are paying for coming up at the White House.
Probably not-- Google "de facto officer doctrine."
Obama lied, freedom died.
Don’t just google de facto officer doctrine, read it read the case law on it and you will find it does not apply.
You are correct if OholyO’s two backscratchers recuse themselves.
Sotomayor and Kagan better recuse themselves.Are they even legally Justices if Obama is not eligible?
Bah. Half the US could die because of this wannabe Hitler, without anyone in power lifting a finger.
Remember what they said about Bill Clinton being able to rape a woman on the house floor without anyone intervening? Democrats and RINOS haven’t changed.
(1) There have never been any votes to hear any eligibility case. All have been denied without comment and without dissent and, most tellingly, without any call for a response from the Government. (When a party asks the Supreme Court to review a case, the opposing party doesn't have to respond; if any of the 9 justices are possibly interested in hearing a case, the court will "call for a response." Obama and the DOJ have never responded to any cert petition in any of the eligibility cases, and the Court has never asked for a response.)
(2) Even if 2 justices are recused, it still takes 4 votes to grant cert.
"the House State Administration Committee had tabled the bill earlier that day. The vote was 9-9, with three Republicans joining six Democrats in opposing the bill. "
Surprised? It does in fact look like there are many that are fearful of ridicule from the state run media.
Requiring documentation and proof of eligibility for office are clearly not a bad thing...unless of course your trying to subvert the requirements.
Hat tip to BP1 for the article.
My thoughts as well. The closest I have come to hearing any MSM is Matthews MAYBE calling him Barry.
The print and TV MSM have been using a broad brush this week to AGAIN paint all BIRTHERS as crazy and removed from the GOP blah blah blah.
The mere fact that this Is *still* being discussed after two years is telling.
The Gov. of Hawaii’s mess he caused in saying he saw ‘a notation’ is telling.
The fact that there are more than one archives of Obama bragging about being Kenyan born in his early political days to make himself look more BLACK than Keyes and others is telling.
Why no college records? Was was someone killed surrounding passportgate? Why no disclosure of his alias?
The more they say folks are crazy the more they have to hide.
Why not just release all records instead of calling people crazy?
IMPROPER DISCLOSURE OF BARRY SOETORO OBAMA (whatever his real name is) And the media is ALL I VIEW AS CRAZY!
If BO is found to be inelligle, then the job would revert to Biden. He was born here and to two American citizen parents. Biden is actually qualified. But that’s ok, I don’t think he could find his way into work everyday.
“..one big idiot in charge..”
Sounds like the best Biden’s crew could come up with for a campaign slogan.
