This case was seen as having the best chance (so far) of being accepted by the court for a hearing, as an elector (plaintiff) was considered likely to have standing, if an average citizen didn’t, per the lower court’s opinion. Actually, the SCOTUS hasn’t given it’s opinion on any of the denials.

I think the SCOTUS wants to dodge the issue and hopes that everyone will eventually just give up and quit trying.

Maybe the best plan of action would be asking the Srotus just exactly who has standing.

Well it seem that the constitutional requirement to be a natural born citizen is invalid because no one will take charge to verify.

The “constitutional lecturer” ran through the loophole.

Additional context to the topic/thread.

Lightfoot v. Bowen: Motion Filed to Declare Obama Unqualified, Certiorari Before Judgment

Dr. Orly Taitz, lead counsel in Lightfoot v. Bowen, filed a motion to declare that the President-Elect fails to qualify under Article 2, Section 1 and Amendment 20, including Rule 21 (2)(B) and (4) of the Constitution.

SCOTUS denied the motion today.

I think it was another of the Obama Birth Certificate lawsuits. For whatever reason, no one ever likes to tell laymen what the topic is about. We’re supposed to go looking for ourselves, then learn to speak lawyer.

On the one hand, I’m not surprised. On the other hand I’m disgusted. Reminds me of the OJ trial jury. The facts were ignored and the jury aimed to right history’s wrongs against blacks. Jury nullification of the facts. Here, it’s judicial nullification of the facts. In denial, the SCOTUS displays it’ cowardice. The battle shifts to the legislature in every state, where qualifications and procedures on qualifying have to be enacted, such as what Oklahoma is in the process of doing, turning said efforts into law. A VERY UPHILL BATTLE, to say the least, with congress and the white house under one party.

It will be a mess because a candidate might qualify in one state but not another...the supreme court will then throw the laws out...watch.

>>> I think the SCOTUS wants to dodge the issue and hopes that everyone will eventually just give up and quit trying. <<<

I’d have to agree with you.

It’s getting more obvious by the day, or more obvious by each and every denial.

KEYES v BOWEN (I think it’s Bowen anyway) is on deck.

From one lay person to another... I’m right there with you. Carpentry is my trade. No lawyering here. I’m still trying to figure out what ‘certiorari’ means. ;o)

We need to send up cases twice a month with military (reserve, retired and active) plaintiffs. Let SCOTUS keep denying them for No standing. We make sure everyone in the military, VFW, any other veterans group or web site.

The military needs to knew we are all serfs now if we do not have standing. The financial system is destroyed - mainly due to corrupt politicians. People have no confidence in the financial system or the government. SCOTUS was one of the last parts of the govt that anyone had respect for.

I pray some day Obama is proved to be the liar he is.

I am beginning to believe that in order to stop the lying in politics, we’re going to have to start incarcerating the convicted.

Where is the courage in this country?

Alan Keyes has a suit before the court in CA. He is a candidate. The SCOTUS has denied average citizens (Pro Se) and attorneys. Now an elector has been denied. Should Keyes be denied as a candidate (and it's not looking good) it begs the question: WHO DOES HAVE STANDING?

ACORN will be running all the elections from now on. Obama wants to bring in “refugees” by the millions with families to sponsor them for fast track green cards and citizenship. This is not a joke. You will have millions of refugees plus millions of illegals already here. Good luck winning any elections.

"Let SCOTUS keep denying them for No standing."

SCOTUS hasn't given "no standing" as a reason. They have denied all the cases without comment.

As I said, SCOTUS has not denied a case on standing. They have simply denied them. They are not obligated to take any case.

Even if one of the cases does have standing, they are going to deny them, because they aren't being given anything that makes any sense.

NO ONE HAS STANDING.....anymore.

they are all avoiding this issue like the plaque....and it is the plaque to them, because when they confront this issue, SCOTUS, the House, Senate, will all be very very ill and there is no medicine strong enough for the cure. They will all be shown up as dumb a$$es because no one bothered to check it out before hand.

I appreciate your clarification on what the court has or has not done. If my memory serves me correctly, one or possibly multiple lower courts have ruled that the plaintiff(s) did not have standing, permitting, by way of denial, the elevation of the cases to the SCOTUS.

That a loophole/flaw exists in the vetting/qualifying of candidates for election to office, at just about every level is painfully obvious. I think the SCOTUS can make sense of said problem. Whether the SCOTUS should be part of the solution seems to be a resounding no, from their point of view.

It is my [decidedly pessimistic] belief that I will not live to see another Republican president or “legitimate” election.

They have finally found the perfect combination of techniques to completely run the table.

I pray that I will be proved wrong.
