OBAMA SUED
BET ^ | 11/21/08 | Staff

Posted on 11/21/2008 2:13:23 PM PST by pissant

Less than two weeks out from losing yet another presidential race, Alan Keyes has started a fresh campaign against President-Elect Barack Obama – in the courtroom.

Alan Keyes and other members of the American Independent Party have filed suit in California Superior Court in Sacramento to stop the state from giving its electoral votes to Obama until the former Illinois Senator can produce a birth certificate showing that he is indeed a natural-born citizen of the United States, according to party.

Keyes, who is from Maryland, ran against Obama as a Republican for the U.S. Senate seat in Illinois in 2004. Obama won that election to serve his first and only term in the U.S. Senate. The Obama campaign countered similar accusations early in 2008 by posting Obama's certification of live birth, and saying: "Barack Obama was born in the state of Hawaii in 1961, a native citizen of the United States of America."

Obama sued sounds a bit like “A Boy Named Sue”. (Is that why he won’t release his BC?)

Actually it was from yesterday, the 20th.

Why the date at the top says 21, I can only speculate.

But I think BET has to get approval from Obama before they report anything.

Hey, everybody, it's parsing time again!

What does this sentence not say?

Notice how they don't mention how Keyes came to be the last-minute candidate against Obama?

It’s just possible the SOS of California could be ordered to request a birth certificate. This will be interesting to watch. They have until January 20 at the latest.

“Natural born”. That’s because Obama was hatched.

A detroit radio station called the Kenyan embassy after the election of Obama. After a lot of trouble they get through to the ambassador of Kenya.

The ambassador of Kenya says that obama was born in Kenya and that his birth place has become a national shrine.

Listen to the recording here

The quote is around 12:35, so if you don’t have time to listen to the whole thing, you can jump ahead.
The transcript reads: 12:05 Radio Jockey: President elect Obama's birth place over in Kenya -- is that going to be a national spot where he was born Ambassador: its already an attraction. his paternal grandmother is still alive Radio Jockey: his birth place...they'll put up a marker there Ambassdor: its already well known.
Be sure to download the recording as well. The chances of it remaining online for long are remote.

If you have the skills to post it on Utube...please do.

The Arnold would have run for president long ago and likely won if he were a "natural born" american. He's not. He's naturalized. So he can't run. And he knows it. (though there were some trial balloons sent up a couple years back about changing the law.)

Like the Arnold, Obama looks to be a naturalized citizen--but maybe he's not even that.

In any case the supreme court--at Justice Thomas instigation-- is taking up the issue Dec 5

They called him a Republican, too. A tactic that was surely designed to rile up their obvious audience.

Fact is, Alan Keyes has left the GOP, and is part of our new vehicle for conservatism, America's Independent Party.

I'll keep correcting folks every chance I get until I see such inaccuracies ceasing to be repeated on FR.

Senator McCain was not born "in the Canal Zone." He was born in Colon, in the Republic of Panama, in a civilian hospital.

Conservatives have nothing to fear from the truth.

Will they punt the US Constitution too? Will they kick it to the curb? I hope and pray they won't.

Let's please keep the facts straight, here. John McCain was not born in the Canal Zone. Coco Solo Hospital was not built until 1941. John McCain was born in 1936. That means he was born in the hospital in Colon, Panama. That is what his birth certificate indicates. He was not born on US soil.

BTW, Certification of Live Birth is NOT the same as a Birth CERTIFICATE. Two different things.

Yup, that is what I was getting at. He was born in a foreign country with only one parent being an American citizen. If both had been, then there would be no question.

That COLB is a canard. It really means nothing. Where is the CERTIFICATE with the signature of the attending physician? Time and date and birth weight etc. I was born in 1943 and my certificate has all that information plus both my mother’s and father’s occupation at the time and their race! It was important then and should be important now.

The real birth certificate isn’t the only important question here, I would like to remind everybody. There are real questions about what Kenyan and/or Indonesian citizenship might have done legally to Obama’s American citizenship status.

You can be natural born, and lose citizenship.
