LIGHTFOOT, GAIL, ET AL. V. BOWEN, CA SEC. OF STATE
The application for stay addressed to The Chief Justice and referred to the Court is denied.
Ah, some context would be helpful.
Yeah, I saw that too...bottom of page one and top of page two...anyone surprised?
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.
Keep trying what...no court will get involved this is evident.
What the hell are you people talking about?
Maybe the best plan of action would be asking the Srotus just exactly who has standing.
It’s posted on SCOTUS website that Lightfoot is denied...bottom of page 1 and top of page 2.
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.
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.
It’s over. The coup is a complete success.
The race card trumped the constitutional card. Leo Donofrio nailed it good when he called ‘the’ Supremes wussies. Cowards is more like it...
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.
The day they drove Old Glory down!
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 is one of the birth certificate cases...I don’t know if it’s one of the natural born ones (Dad British citizen) or show me the birth certificate ones. I can’t keep them straight.
It seems that we have just moved fromshalom b'SHEM Yah'shua HaMashiach Adonai
a constitutional Republic
to a lawless democracy with
the help of those so-called
conservative justices appointed by George.
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.
