Lets play a hypothetical. Play along with me on this one.
A President and Vice President are killed. In haste, the Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court swears in the Speaker of the House as President.
After the swearing in, it is learned that the Chief Justice didnt ask the age of the Speaker of the House, and just assumed that they were old enough per the Constitution. He just assumed and didnt know that the new President was NOT qualified due to age.
Now the newly sworn in President CLAIMS that they are old enough, but refuses to release their birth certificate to the public.
Just who has legal authority for review after the Speaker of the House has been sworn in as President? According to this ruling, it isnt the judicial branch. Because no crime has been committed, the President cant be impeached, so it isnt the legislative branch (and because the Speaker of the House is from the majority party, that party controls the House as well). The President is chief executive over the executive branch so they wouldnt out themselves.
So I ask again, who would have legal authority?
I certainly dont get it.
I don't get it either. They all seem to be pointing at the other "guy" saying, it's not my job...it's theirs!
I've posted this elsewhere, but it bears repeating, IMO:
From Judge Carter's ORDER:
"The Court must establish that it has jurisdiction before it may reach the question of interpreting the natural born citizen clause of the Constitution."This statement is found in the SCOTUS brief overview:
"Jurisdiction. According to the Constitution (Art. III, §2): The judicial Power shall extend to all Cases, in Law and Equity, arising under this Constitution"http://www.supremecourtus.gov/about/briefoverview.pdf
Apparently, "we" are all supposed to believe the party line that a question specific to Article II, Section 1 Clause 5 in the CONSTITUTION itself (& not some election law, or state law, or statue, etc) is something the "judicial" branch can not address. Carter and all the other judges that ruled the judiciary doesn't have jurisdiction is, IN PLAIN SITE, contradicting the Constitution.
May I post it with attribution on this thread I started?
Or would you like to do it yourself, and join the fun there?
Not my job.
