SCOTUS message to the American people
January 20, 2009
On Wednesday, January 14, 2009, at the invitation of Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, Also Known As Obama (hereafter known as AKA) and his sidekick, Joseph Biden, paid a visit to the United States Supreme Court, spending the better part of an hour sequestered in secrecy with eight of the nine United States Supreme Court Justices. Justice Alito was not in attendance.
According to an Associated Press release, written by Mark Sherman,
"When employees glimpsed Obama on his way out, a loud cheer went up in a building that exudes decorum."
Can one surmise the Supreme Court ecstatic over the illegitimate ...
The invitation of Chief Justice Roberts, the behind closed door meeting with a man who is the subject of lawsuits coming before the Supreme Court concerning his eligibility to the office of president, was not only inappropriate but leaves questionable the judicial conduct of the justices with whom AKA and Biden met.
Judges are to refrain from appearances of impropriety and partiality; from engaging in activities that compromise the mandate of an independent judiciary. According to the AP piece,
"Eight years ago, President George W. Bush did not visit the court before he took office, but the circumstances were to put it mildly unusual.
In December 2000, the court decided the case of Bush v. Gore by a 5-4 vote, ending the legal battle over the contested Florida election and effectively sealing the presidency for Bush."
The circumstances surrounding AKA are just as "unusual", considering the question of eligibility because of his refusal to produce the one document that would prove (or disprove) his eligibility to the office of president his long form vault copy Hawaii birth certificate a document that ....

She makes very good points about the fraternizing of the SCOTUS and POTUS.
Because of appearances of impropriety, all nine justices will recuse themelves from this case.
The Supreme Court has become Obama’s and the left’s whipping boys and girl. Sad.
Actually, I believe the critical part of the case on the 2000 election was 7 to 2 or 6-3.
This is what ethics is all about. Just the appearance of Obama and the Justices amounts to the same thing as committing an act of unethical behavior. How can we believe a President and Justices who do this? Especially when the Justices are denying without comment every case which I consider based on a legitimate question (Is Mr. Obama eligible to run for the POTUS).
Yep. Sounds like his trip to Hawaii to ‘visit his sick grandmother,’ whom he blew off after she died.
The man is a fool and it will eventually backfire on him. I just hope we are given time to get the you know what out of the way.
I thought it was from “The Onion”!
Welcome to New Kenya (Africa U.S.A.)
"Where the law of the jungle has replaced the Law of the Land"
Can the SCOTUS not see the Results of this?
If the Constitution is dead, so is our nation!
It’s a great article, although Lynn Stuter might want to be sure that her affairs are in order, as she’ll be one of the first to be rounded up and shipped off to whatever gulag opens up in her region of the USSPR (United States Socialist Peoples Republic).
At this point, it should be very obvious to the American people, no matter their party affiliation, that the executive, legislative and judicial branches of the United States government no longer consider themselves the servant of the people, but their master.
Thank you, 'null and void' and 'autumnraine'.
Orly had to explain to Mr. Bickell when he called her how we citizens got concerned when we saw the information about the cases we have all supported, worked on, and followed disappear from the docket.
Orly also had to explain to Mr. Bickell that many of us citizens are also concerned about the 8 out of 9 justices meeting privately with Mr. Obama. No reporters were allowed. No attorneys were invited on behalf of the Plaintiffs. This causes many of us citizens to question the rules of judicial ethics and causes us to question the impartiality on behalf of the justices.
Quite a number of people have contacted their senators and congressmen because of this meeting and want the justices impeached because the plaintiffs and attorneys weren’t present.
It is a good article.
This inappropriate behavior by the SCOTUS was and is wrong. No amount of excuses and explanations given by some FReepers are acceptable.
Right is right, and this wasn't.
And thanks for the Ping LucyT!
You are correct .. IT WAS 7 TO 2
The 2nd part was 5 to 4 against the FL State court.
He is a liar.
I was looking all over for that too. Than I remember Obambi actually went to the SCOTUS.
It is beginning to look like it. I am disappointed in the Justices right now.
Well .. what if the Chief Justice realized that taking the case before a court where the media would be listening might prove uncomfortable for the country and cause a Constitutional crisis.
What if the Chief Justice told the new President - either produce a birth certificate or you’re out of office.
Wouldn’t anybody want to avoid a Constitutional crisis - especially since 95% of all the blacks in this country would tear it apart if they thought for one moment - the white man - took away their black president.
I just wish a little more common sense would prevail in the world .. it would save a lot of hyperventilating.
You’re welcome, Aurorales.
One, I don't buy that "Blacks" are going to rip the country apart, most are law abiding citizens. To think otherwise is racist.
Two, you don't run a Country by a few peoples self appointed "common sense"..that's called a dictatorship.
Three...if a crisis were to arise, the fault would not be on the citizens who raised questions but on the person who perpetrated the secrecy that gave rise to the questions.
Ill be using that as reference in the future.... Thanks!
Make that eight of the nine; “Justice Alito was not in attendance.”
What if I don’t trust “What if”.
I am sure someone has talked about this but in the photo of Obama in the Justice chambers did anyone happen to notice the document on the table?
Its size and color?
Not only would there be massive protest and rioting no doubt...by white and blacks who view this as conservatives overturning and election...the GOP and conservatives would be finished for a generation...I’m not worried because the Supreme court will not play politics with this issue.
Those of you who righteously talk about the constitution are fooling yourselves...it’s not about the constitution. Overturning an election would be unconstitutional. It’s about a refusal to accept the election results. Our guy lost period. Better luck in four years. If the court did what you want...ruled on natural born and then retroactively applied it to the 2008 election...now that would be unconstitutional and would destroy our election process.
You seem to worry about what is constitutional where you like rather than with respect to actuality. Overturning an election is a duty to the Constitution if the election itself is Constitutionally flawed.
Moving constitutional issues aside in the Obama case; Obama has a duty to the country and those who voted for him, not to mention to himself and his agenda, to end the question of his birth and show the document being so speculated about. It is the adult thing to do. It is the American thing to do. It is the RESPONSABLE thing to do.
it's not the Marxist DemocRAT thing to do.
>>>Two, you don’t run a Country by a few peoples self appointed “common sense”..that’s called a dictatorship.
also called terrorism.
Terrorism: the threat of violence against civilians in order to attain goals that are political
Now it comes packaged under ‘political correctness’ too.
The skinny in DC is that Barry’s Real Immigration status is going to be covered up. Official and unofficial DC considers having an unconstitutional President LESS dangerous than the civil unrest throwing his worthless ass out on to the curb where it belongs.
Yea it makes me sick.
ex parte communication in an ongoing case is something no judge should allow.
Hawaii officials are guaring the vault BC as if it were the Shroud of Turin The BC is the property of Hawaii, not Obama, so there would have to be collusion with high-level officials to pull a smash and grab.
Obama knows for a fact that he cannot get his grubby little hands on it, and even if he could, its non-authenticity would be a lot easier to spot as a forgery than the image was.
We shall see.
One cannot deny a volcano out of existence.
It’s all plausible. What’s more, is anyone in Hawaii in 1961 could have registered a birth. Regardless of where the baby was actually born, he could easily have been born in Kenya and brought to Hawaii and then registered as having been born at a STREET ADDRESS as opposed to a hospital. He would then have a Hawaii Certificate of birth, but still have been born in Kenya. All it would take would be for his mom and a witness to lie. No one would have asked for any proof whats so ever. If there are real records in Kenya, thats relevant! If there are real records of Indonesian citizenship, THAT is relevant. His Immigration status is RELEVANT because if he held citizenship of ANY other country, Britain, Kenya, Indonesia, BY LAW can NOT be a Natural Born Citizen. He is a naturalized Citizen.
It was a fraudulent election. There is nothing retroactive. We have someone who refuses to prove he is eligble, who raised hundreds of millions from unknown and possibly offshore sources, who has already signed orders that could benefit Islamic terrorists. A polling firm showed terrorism is #3 out of 15 things important to Americans. Faux global warming was last.
If SCOTUS and other courts keep “dissing” the citizenry then the next case should be filed by thousands of military members - retired, active and reserve.
Let the SCOTUS and other courts tell men and women who risk their lives and who take an oath to protect the Constitution that they have NO standing.
The project appears to be already happening with preliminary efforts through the VFW and other veterans groups.
I agree completely.
It IS tampering with the judges that have cases IN DOCKET against the defendant B. Hussein O.
Whole damn Government REEKS of Obama’s corruption now.
Other elected Presidents have tried coverups - some succeeded...some did not!
If this is true, then the Tree of Liberty is in dire need of watering.
Seems as though all the suits in DC are empty. Either eunuchs or evil.
Wish I could say that I still have great hope in SCOTUS. I still can not imagine Justice Thomas, Alito, Scalia and Roberts letting this issue go unanswered. If Monday brings no comments from SCOTUS on the Orley case, I will know they are turning their backs on our Constitution.
If DC thinks a cover up won’t create civil unrest, they are in for a sad awakening.
I see the “loophole factor” as being involved.
Think of it from a criminal case perspective. Years ago, say a law was passed that nobody ever broke. Nobody even got around to deciding whose job it was to enforce the law. Then finally somebody breaks the law. In a criminal case, while yes, it is the law, few judges are going to convict, or even try, somebody for breaking it, if nobody even has been determined to be in charge of enforcing the law.
But all hope is not lost. While Obama is going to get over—once—at some point the Supreme Court is going to tell congress that they had better legislatively pass an exception, or there is no way in hell they will let Obama run for re-election, if it comes to that. With a congressional exception that they declare him to be naturally born American, no problem.
More importantly, the SCOTUS will give fair warning to the political parties that they had better vet the heck out of future candidates so this doesn’t happen again. That’s what they are doing right now—crossing the t’s and dotting the i’s.
Yes, this time, the courts let the bank robber walk because of a loophole in the law. But don’t do it again, or else.
Right. It must be emphasized that John Jay's intent about this is not about presidential elections, per se. It is about making sure that anyone who serves as Commander in Chief is a natural born Citizen and without foreign allegiance.
Permit me to hint whether it would not be wise and seasonable to provide a strong check to the admission of foreigners into the administration of our national government ; and to declare expressly that the command in chief of the American army shall not be given to, nor devolve on any but a natural born citizen.
You are correct. It was 7-2.
Has everybody forgotten the time that Scalia and Cheney went hunting while the Supreme Court was deliberating a case against Cheney? What is illegal is for a judge to talk to a party about the case.
Seeing as-- unlike Bush v. Gore-- the Supreme Court has not agreed to hear any case against Obama, I'm sure whatever Obama and the Justices talked about, it wasn't the cases against Obama.
Meeting with Obama is not illegal. Talking to him about his birth certificate would have been illegal. I'm sure Roberts did not hand Obama the grounds to have Roberts impeached.
That's why Conservatives stay home while Liberals bus people all over.
No, conservatives won’t riot like liberals. But they aren’t staying home either.
