State Legislators Join Lawsuit: Show Us Your Birth Certificate, President Obama!
The Andrea Shea King Show ^ | Feb. 16, 2009 | Andrea Shea King

Posted on 02/16/2009 3:11:06 PM PST by patriotgal1787

We might have just arrived at the tipping point -- the critical mass to get Obama to release his birth certificate.

Four Tennessee legislators have signed on as plaintiffs in a lawsuit forcing Obama to prove his US citizenship.

Two more legislators have publicly announced they will also join the suit, one from Arizona, the other from New Hampshire.

Tonight, we talk to two of the Tennessee legislators, and the attorney bringing the suit forward.

Don't miss it -- we hit the ground running at 9 p.m. ET.

Link to here to hear.

Obama - natural born citizen?

Seriously!

I’m tempted to think that there’s a one-word answer: kneepads.

THe portions of the government that allowed him to get there were already under his control.

Well, given Obama’s actions, I’m sure that these members of the legislature are worried about how restive the citizenry are getting.

Besides, the press is only now paying attention to this. Remember, just because the press does not report it does not mean it never happened.

Doesn’t this make SEVEN legislators total if we include Dr. Mike Ritze of Oklahoma ? Does having plaintiffs that are state legislators add weight to the case, or will the
spineless judges continue to dismiss with out comment ? Sometime (before I die) I’d like to see the dam burst on the Usurper...the Saudi Arabian sponsored media cannot prevail too much longer. What will it take for Hannity, Rush or O’Reilly to FINALLY cover this ? Is Ann Coulter a consideration ?

I head Glenn Beck comment that we didn’t know who he was when we elected him and we still don’t know who he is. That tells me that this issue is alive in the consciousness of the media.

What I can’t understand is why Obama was allowed to regisiter as a presidential candidate in 57 state and territorial primaries and then 50 state general elections without have to show proof of eligibility to hold office. If some of the states had taken that action, it would be Obama who would be suing.

The media have broad resources for research. If they singularly or collectively gave a damn "who he is," they would have found out and broadcast the findings. The fact is, they couldn't care less, and likewise the populace at large.

Reporting can take one of two forms: 1) do the tedious and sometimes fruitless footwork, search for information, and dig out the truth; or:

2) repeat what someone else tells you.

Both approaches pay the same.

The four Tennesseans, plus Dr. Ritze from Arizona and another legislator from New Hampshire are the ones Dr. Taitz told me about this afternoon. There could possibly be more joining the list. She said she would know more tomorrow.

Roger Calero is a known resident alien who was on several state ballots this time out. He even sued in states that wouldn’t allow him on the ballot based on the double standards.

Perhaps you cannot understand it because your premise is incorrect.

What do you mean? You can't even sign up for little league without showing a birth certificate, but Obama was allowed to register as a candidate for president in every state without having to actually document his eligiblity to hold that office. After that the courts found that no one has standing to sue Obama to produce such documentation. The whole system is backwards. A candidate should not be allowed to have his or her name placed on ballots without first filing documentation demonstrating qualifications to hold the office. The burden of proof should be on the candidate to provide the documentation. If the states and their attorneys general hadn't been sitting on their butts in the first place, they could have forced Obama to document proof of "natural born citizen" status.

What do you mean? You can't even sign up for little league without showing a birth certificate, but Obama was allowed to register as a candidate for president in every state without having to actually document his eligiblity to hold that office.

How do you know he did show either his BC, passport or other document to one of the secretaries of state?

After that the courts found that no one has standing to sue Obama to produce such documentation.

This is very basic. Courts do not allow people to sue unless they have standing. To have standing, you have to show that you have an interest in the case that is greater than that of the general public at large. This is a very long-standing rule and standard in our court system, and it is there for good reason. The courts could not function if any private citizen could sue any public official over any matter that affects the public at large. No court system could handle such a caseload.

That is why we have a political process (i.e. elections & elected officials) to handle matters that concern the public at large. The courts have no business intervening in such things. This is all part of the conservative doctrine of judicial restraint.

If one of the electors or secretaries of state were not satisfied with Obama's elgibility, and wanted proof, they would have standing. But not a single one of them has raised the issue.

Why do you suppose that is? Are all 50 secretaries of state, and all 400+ electors in on some huge conspiracy?

I didn't say that he did. In fact I implied the opposite. Reread what I wrote. I was trying to contrast how Obama' applications for ballot access were treated compared to ordinary mundane things that ordinary citizens have to do. I talked to one of the top legal advisors to the Texas GOP last summer. He said its pracically impossible for anyone to have standing to sue a candidate's qualifications. He also said that all a candidate has to do is to say he meets all the qualifications - not actually have to document them.

You seem to have a considerable amount of negative comments pertaining to those who think Obama’s birth certificate is bogus. I gathered that from your “in forum” section. Are you a certified authority on that subject with 100% proof? If so, then you calling those who question Obama’s birth certificate as a tinfoil hat thing is right. If not, then your word is based on pure speculation which is what you are calling those with whom you disagree with.
