Will the 3rd time be the Charm in Challenging Obama's Eligibility?
Like the Energizer Bunny, the cases challenging Obama's eligibility are still going strong. There have been a ton of lawsuits challenging Obama's right to take office with fellow Democrat Philip Berg taking the lead.
To date Berg has filed several injuctions, all of which have been denied except his original compliant that is scheduled to be heard by the U.S. Supreme Court on January 9th, 2009.
From WND --
"I know that Mr. Obama is not a constitutionally qualified natural born citizen and is ineligible to assume the office of president of the United States," Berg said in a statement on his ObamaCrimes.com website.
"Obama knows he is not 'natural born' as he knows where he was born and he knows he was adopted in Indonesia; Obama is an attorney, Harvard Law grad who taught Constitutional law; Obama knows his candidacy is the largest 'hoax' attempted on the citizens of the United States in over 200 years; Obama places our Constitution in a 'crisis' situation; and Obama is in a situation where he can be blackmailed by leaders around the world who know Obama is not qualified," Berg's statement continued.
On one hand, it is almost hard to believe Obama's origin of birth could still be an issue at this point his political career. On the other hand, with cult-like support rivaling David Koresh & Charlie Manson that the "Anointed One" has generated, I do not put anything past them in advancing their socialist agenda.
If the birth certificate is legal and can be verified - he should produce it and put an end to this circus-like spectacle of challenges...
A partial listing and status update for several of the cases surrounding Obama's eligibility to serve as president is below:
Philip J. Berg, a Pennsylvania Democrat, demanded that the courts verify Obama's original birth certificate and other documents proving his American citizenship. Berg's latest appeal, requesting an injunction to stop the Electoral College from selecting the 44th president, was denied. But the conference on the case is set Jan. 9.
Leo Donofrio of New Jersey filed a lawsuit claiming Obama's dual citizenship disqualified him from serving as president. His case was considered in conference by the U.S. Supreme Court but denied a full hearing.
Cort Wrotnowski filed suit against Connecticut's secretary of state, making a similar argument to Donofrio. His case was considered in conference by the U.S. Supreme Court, but was denied a full hearing.
Former presidential candidate Alan Keyes headlines a list of people filing a suit in California, in a case handled by the United States Justice Foundation, that asks the secretary of state to refuse to allow the state's 55 Electoral College votes to be cast in the 2008 presidential election until Obama verifies his eligibility to hold the office. The case is pending, and lawyers are seeking the public's support.
Chicago attorney Andy Martin sought legal action requiring Hawaii Gov. Linda Lingle to release Obama's vital statistics record. The case was dismissed by Hawaii Circuit Court Judge Bert Ayabe.
Lt. Col. Donald Sullivan sought a temporary restraining order to stop the Electoral College vote in North Carolina until Barack Obama's eligibility could be confirmed, alleging doubt about Obama's citizenship. His case was denied.
In Ohio, David M. Neal sued to force the secretary of state to request documents from the Federal Elections Commission, the Democratic National Committee, the Ohio Democratic Party and Obama to show the presidential candidate was born in Hawaii. The case was denied.
In Washington state, Steven Marquis sued the secretary of state seeking a determination on Obama's citizenship. The case was denied.
In Georgia, Rev. Tom Terry asked the state Supreme Court to authenticate Obama's birth certificate. His request for an injunction against Georgia's secretary of state was denied by Georgia Superior Court Judge Jerry W. Baxter.
California attorney Orly Taitz has brought a case, Lightfoot vs. Bowen, on behalf of Gail Lightfoot, the vice presidential candidate on the ballot with Ron Paul, four electors and two registered voters.
Private investigator Douglas Hagmann of Homeland Security US reported earlier he found 13 cases challenging Obama's eligibility still active or semi-active.
One last tidbit for you to chew on.... what if the birth certificate in question is a fraud?
What if, through these filings, the Supreme Court KNOWS Obama is not eligible to be POTUS but is thinking of the socialist $#!+-storm they will cause should they rule his election null and void?
Let me go out on a limb and say no, it won’t be the charm.
Nothing will come of this either. Flame away if I turn out to be wrong on my prediction.
It really doesn’t matter. It is all in the Senate’s hands now, and hell will freeze over first.
Yup, probably won’t fly, but I am looking forward to the Big-0 having to prove his citizenship in Oklahoma in four years...;^)
yes. it will pretty much run out of steam.
I’m with you, it on’t be the charm. That charlatan Obama can do no wrong in the eyes of the media. They are so far up his bum that they can do a colonoscopy. His good luck isn’t going to last...tick...tick..tick..he’ll step it in big time.
Just don’t argue from silence, as if you know the future. We all know there’s a strong possibility this won’t get justice with the SCOTUS. But arguing as if it has already happened is an argument from silence. This is a legitimate constitutional issue, a constitutional crisis.
I have no hope the Senate will lift a finger, and if even one senator raises an objection it will be voted down. It’s in the SCOTUS hands. They’re paid to protect the constitution. I hope they do their job.
While I hope and pray somwething will stop him from becoming President, I believe that nothing will stop his coronation.
I agree that it’s a very legitimate issue. But I have no confidence in SCOTUS getting involved. Other branches of government? Sure. Pelosi and Reid will hold hearings. Not. McCain will be telling that this issue is “off limits”.
0 is not playing some silly game, there can't be anything so profoundly embarrassing that he could not have a true copy of the original to show the Court, out of public view. This man is a real mystery--and about to be President of the US.
I would like to propose that nothing from the WND ever be posted here as news - if you feel the uncontrolable urge to post something from there, please do it on an entertainment blog. Thank you.
I did not post it, why are you telling me?
But I have no confidence in SCOTUS getting involved.
***I still hold a mustard seed’s worth of confidence, where there should be a mustard tree orchard.
Can I ask you a question in the hopes you won’t get offended? I notice that there are a bunch of oldtimer FReeper CoLB trolls who seem to have the same level of no-confidence in SCOTUS. Now, let me be very straightforward here: I’m NOT calling you a troll. What I wonder is whether this lack of confidence is what causes the FReeper CoLB trolls to lash out at those who are slightly less cynical?
The Court can only act when Congress raises the question of elibility.
***Can you please point that out in the statutes or the constitution? I’ve been following this issue for a long time and it’s the first I’ve heard of that.

I’ve seen it in posts in the last week or so—one yesterday which was posted last night or the 20th. Let me check.
I wasn’t pointing this at you, it was a random thought/request
