Is this really true. I have been reading and didn't know there was a ruling in a case called 'Ankeny et. al. v The Governor of Indiana, Mitch Daniels'. It is a case I have never heard of on Obama's Eligibility and I sure didn't hear it or see it in the media or anywhere around the forum boards. What struck me is that in this case they ruled that Barak Obama is a Natural Born Citizen by stating this:
Based upon the language of Article II, Section 1, Clause 4 and the guidance provided by [the US Supreme Court in 1898 in the case of US v] Wong Kim Ark, we conclude that persons born within the borders of the United States are natural born Citizens for Article II, Section 1 purposes, regardless of the citizenship of their parents. Just as a person born within the British dominions [was] a natural-born British subject at the time of the framing of the U.S. Constitution, so too were those born in the allegiance of the United States natural-born citizens.Indiana Court of Appeals, Ankeny et. al. v The Governor of Indiana, Mitch Daniels, Nov. 12, 2009.
Why has this slipped under the radar and can Obama use this court case as proof that he is a Natural Born Citizen as his defense in Kerchner vs Obama and Lt. Col Terry Lakins court martial which proceedings start next week?
Here is the case:
Like about 97% of what is posted on this topic - it is complete BS.
Yeah, wasn’t it Indiana that declared pi is equal to 3?
This is bs. They will do anything to make sure the public doesn’t know the truth about Obama. I think it’s time to find out the truth and how people like Pelosi and others have helped Obama pull what looks to be a scam.
I don’t believe he is actually a legitimate President anymore.
It has slipped through the radar because the reasoning and conclusion are patently false although the after-birthers strumpet it.
If this was true; it would prove he was not legitmate when he ran and lied to Americans.
Yea but what bothers me is the ruling say that he is a Natural Born Citizen regardless of Citizenship of Parents!!!
That means they didn’t care if his dad was a Kenyan British Subject. That also means that a ‘Anchor Baby’ born to two illegal mexicans can grow up and meet the requirements of Article 2 Section 1 to be President. This really is disturbing.
His daddy was not American.....therefore he was not ..is not a “natural Born” American.
Not exactly, although a bill redefining pi did almost pass. It was so confusingly worded, it's hard to say what exact relationship the author intended to substitute.
It’s BS and more BS on the part of Indiana State.
They and their courts do not have the authority to speak for the country as a whole. State court decisions are binding and precedent in that State only, unless overturned by their respective State Supreme Court (or whatever its name is) of the USSC if the state decision can be appealed to the USSC level.
Indiana ... Go Home. STFU!
The stench of Chicago is strong on this one.
So who’s gonna appeal??? Should go right to SCOTUS.
No, the ruling is quite real.
So if pi=3 and obama=citizen then pi=citizen /indiana logic
Agreed....Who is Retired Intelligence Officer?
It will be interesting in the next election when some states will be demanding proof of NBC before being put on the ballot and apparently the standards for meeting the NBC requirements will vary from state to state. Nevertheless, if you are not an NBC according to a particular state you will not get on the ballot.
Seems like a forumula for election chaos.
At best, that court decision would create a usable precedent in Indiana, affecting solely how the State of Indiana sees the issue. That’s because it’s a decision made by an Indiana State court—and not even that State’s Supreme Court.
The meaning of “natural born citizen” is an issue regarding the interpretation of the US Constitution involving the qualifications for a US Constitutional office, and so can only be decided by a US Federal court.
