Those stories will be coming up right after an update on Sarah Palin’s shoes, Michelle Obama’s ring, and an in-depth look at whether Britney Spears is getting married again......

I heard it mentioned on the PBS news. It was a blurb, but it was mentioned.

The MSM has done and OUTSTANDING job of ignoring the rapidly growing elephant in the room. They just can't ignore it any longer.

I caught some of Mark Levin this hour and he was ranting and raving about the abuse of the constitution.....where are the James Madison, John Adams, etc. Meanwhile Leo’s case is right there in front of him and he’s stone cold silent.

Obama will be removed from office due to this Constitutional issue....about a week before his second term ends. Appeals, appeals, appeals.

Tin foil hat stuff. Could Obama be putting Hillary up for SoS knowing that her nomination would run into this, be reported by the DBM as such, and then resolve the matter with an appropriate pay cut, citing earlier precedents, all the while using the controversy as a smokescreen to keep the birth certificate thing below the radar?

You forgot these other pressing news questions usually put forth by Faux News-Obama:

- Will there be any murders as a result of the ruling, and will any of the deceased be blondes?

- Will any of the legal parties be driving white Broncos?

- Have any of the Supreme Court Justices offered an opinion on the OJ Simpson case?

The Hillary issue can be resolved. I don’t think the same can be said about the bc. This is getting legs and it won’t go away even if this is a smokescreen.

It’s NOT about the birth certificate.

Donofrio’s lawsuit is about establishing whether 0bama is a “natural born citizen”. Obama must be born on American soil of an American mother and American Father.

0bama’s father was NOT a US Citizen! 0bama is NOT ELIGIBLE based on that fact! He is NOT ‘NATURAL BORN’!

Nah. You want the ads to get into a wide circulation periodical to get the most exposure for your buck. Pinch has ensured that the NYT does not qualify. Heh-heh.

Yes I agree. But the fact that it is being mentioned is a first. IMO it won’t be resolved until there is a case brought by someone with standing. The cases before the Supreme Court might get tossed but surely one will stick. I just hope it happens sooner rather than later.

I've heard of a few others but haven't heard of the Steve alias yet. This guy has more alias than an illegal immigrant involved in criminal activities. Oh, wait....

I heard it also. I guess since the case is going to be reviewed by the Supreme Court FNC feels it’s safe enough to mention it.

It has to do with the fact that Congress voted for raises for the SoS while Hillary was in office.

IMO, it is not a big deal since other SoS had the same issue. Congress will need to pass legislation and Hillary will likely need to accept lower pay.

I know that. I was just proposing the deliberate use of the controversy as a tool to distract attention.

More tin foil hat stuff. Alternatively, it could be conditioning. Suppose he proposed her knowing there would be a violation of a clause of the constitution, that the fact would be brought out in the press and then he got the matter fixed legislatively (pay cut). The idea is to condition the American public to having a violation of a clause of the constitution fixed legislatively (no amendment). That might be a useful tool for him later.

Hi there. This is the complication with Hillary. Hillary Selection Calls Obama's Respect for the Constitution Into Question.

No Senator or Representative shall, during the Time for which he was elected, be appointed to any civil Office under the Authority of the United States, which shall have been created, or the Emoluments whereof shall have been encreased during such time...

They maybe able to wiggle out of this by paying her the same rate as a senator or something like that.

Steve isn’t an alias of Obama. At the ROAST for candidates at former NY Governor banquet held during every election, it’s where candidates laugh at each other and themselves.

Obama’s comment was ‘You’ve heard a lot about my name (responding to Hussein middle name comments) and to tell you the truth it’s not Obama it’s actually “Steve”. He said whoever named him didn’t realize he would ever run for President. It was funny stuff...and McCain was really good.

"Tin foil hat stuff."

I hope you are wrong. The Hillary possible ineligibility is news to me, but at least 4 Supreme Court Justices have agreed to take the Obama "citizenship" case and they will hear it on Friday.

>"Exactly who do you appeal to when the Supreme Court has decided a case?"

You don't. In Obama's case, if they rule that he is not a natural born U.S. Citizen, he would be ineligible to serve. The Congress cannot enact emergency legislation to help him, because it would require an Amendment to the Constitution, and there isn't a 2/3 vote in both the House and Senate, nor will 3/4 of State Legislatures be able to pass it. He would be Kenyan toast.

Maybe Brett was referring to the fact that the first filing to SCOTUS was mishandled by a clerk and Souter - and tossed. Then, the second "case" would be the one Thomas will bring to conference on Friday. All it takes is 4 to refer to full review. That's MY take on it, but I could be wrong.

Atty. Leo Donofrio. He’s brought suit to prove that 0bama does not have ‘natural born’ status because his father was not a US citizen.

“What is this about Hillary not being eligible for SoS? I haven’t heard anything about this. Can someone fill me in please?”

As usual, a whole lot of echo-chambering. The chances of Hillary being found ineligible for the SoS are about equal to her chances of suddenly being arrested. In other words, Hillary Clinton will be Secretary of State.

People should ask themselves if they really believe whoever Obama would appoint NEXT, someone like Cindy Sheehan or Michael Moore most likely, would be a better choice.

It’s growing legs as far as I’m concerned. A 5th U.S. Supreme Court case challenging Obama’s non-citizenship is coming out of Texas.

Natural Born citizen:

Born Citizen = Anybody who received citizenship at birth.
Natural Citizen = Anybody who received citizenship without going through immigration/naturalization.

Natural Born Citizen = Combination of Above

Son of Two illegal Immigrants born in US = Natural Born Citizen

If Obama was born in Hawaii, he is a natural born citizen and the SC will tell you as much. You are either a natural born citizen or naturalized citizen, if Obama is not naturalized he is natural born, simple as that.

Hillary, as SoS, would only be become POTUS if Obama is sworn in and Biden (VP) and Pelosi (House Speaker) cannot or will not serve.

I THINK Amendment XX suggests that Biden would serve in the interim while a new President is chosen, should Obama become ineligible after the Electoral College vote and prior to taking the oath of office.

“...if the President elect shall have failed to qualify, then the Vice President elect shall act as President until a President shall have qualified.”

Not according to Donofrio.

Naturalized - born on foreign soil and took on American citizenship.

Native Born - born on American soil of one or two non-citizens. My son is native born as my husband is Canadian and I am American. Our son was born on American soil.

Natural born - Born on American soil of two American citizens. Either the parents are both born on American soil, or the parents can be naturalized, but the child must be born after the parents take on citizenship.
