Keyes: President 'has something to hide' about eligibility

Says Dem 'asked to be chosen, therefore must answer'

Alan Keyes

Alan Keyes, a 2008 presidential candidate who now is a plaintiff in one of the many lawsuits seeking to verify whether Barack Obama qualifies under the U.S. Constitution's requirements to occupy the Oval Office, says the tactics adopted by lawyers for the president confirm there is an issue for the courts to investigate.

Keyes, who was the candidate of the American Independent Party, cited a recent exchange with lawyers representing Obama in which they warned they might seek monetary penalties against those raising the question of Obama's eligibility under the Constitution's requirement that the president be a "natural born" citizen.

"It confirms the common sense suspicion that he won't act forthrightly in this matter because he has something to hide," Keyes wrote on his blog after WND reported the warning about "sanctions" was raised by Obama's defense lawyers.

The onetime U.S. ambassador explained on his posting that those raising questions over Obama's elibigility – so far – have simply been ignored by courts.

"In effect, the courts are refusing to admit plaintiffs on this matter into the courtroom, thereby denying them justice," he wrote. "Madison wrote, 'Justice is the end of government. It is the end of civil society. It will be pursued either until it be obtained or until liberty be lost in the pursuit.'"

Why do I expect the Zero administration to impose some kind of law against questioning a president’s legitimacy or background.

Even if it's providing a ten dollar proof document?

I would think that if there was nothing to hide they'd pony it up real quick. They'd then have more money left over to consume on their lust for power.

The fact that they won't speaks volumes.

'Thugs in robes' meet litigant ex parte, and secretly agree (wink, wink) to quash all future "natural citizenship" issues,
as they laugh over the grave of stupid, powerless Judge John Jay who warned of their treason.

We've had the fear mongering already, now...

Somehow, I’m beginning to wonder if all of this isn’t more about The One’s tuition sources at Occidental College and elsewhere...places where he may well have played the small con by letting the admissions and tuition assistance offices believe that he was a foreign student. If so, it’s not that he’s ineligible to be president under the Constitution. It’s more about the likelihood that he’s a liar and a cheat, and if there’s any justice in all this, it’s because now he has to spend millions in legal fees to prevent anyone knowing that in the 1980s he successfully defrauded some school of a few thousand dollars in tuition assistance money...

Alan Keyes! He ran for president a few years ago. I noticed that the media totally ignored him. They made him the invisible man. The bastards in the media did NOT start chanting “first black president” over Keyes.
The media is full of hypocritical leftist bastards.

Alan Keys, I supported him because of his impeccable Constitutional and Christian values. If I'm not mistaken, Keys said if he becomes president he would not sign any bill that did not meet Constitutional muster. The republican party didn't like him for that reason. I submit, he should have been our first black president. Keys and Palin, great ticket for 2012.

I love the way Obama leans on his host’s chair. No manners, no couth, poor grammar — but lots of arrogance and class envy.

Tah duh! You're the winner!

No matter what the answer is regarding his BC the next questions begs itself to be answered.

So you are a Natural Born American, well then, tell us about your college loans and admissions. What documents did you use obtain both? Did you claim status as a foreign national to secure your admission to college and dorm with, presumably, two men from similar cultures.

Your college loan as a foreign national would have favorable terms when compared to a “Genuine American”. Did you claim British, Kenyan or Indonesian Citizenship to swindle these loans?

What passport did you use to travel to Pakistan in the 80’s?

In jeopardy, no matter the answer.

But, absolutely cannot allow the BC case to move forward. If the plaintiffs prevail then the setup is to proceed with the examination of citizenship claims at various time during his life.

They will continue to have these suits quashed. But, they cannot succeed at all of them. They may even have developed strategies should a plaintiff succeed in having their claim duly examined.

Somebody in one of these institutions is not going to be able to help him- or herself. And most cellphones have cameras these days. The National Enquirer has become the newspaper of record for Democrat irregularities.

I agree. If Obama is so innocent- why was it reported on the 13th of this month that his high dollar attorneys filed to block access to all from his records from colleges to his so called BC? I do not accept any public servant thinking he/she is above the law, needs to or can legally hide behind attorneys blocking access to information that the public/ voters have a right to see/know, and somehow claiming special status that no one else in public office or all those serving this nation in uniform can claim/do.

My experience supports the facts that the FBI runs BI checks on all TS securtity applicants and checks into the same information that he is blocking from us and the FEDS.

Does he think he is better then those who serve and/or does he really think his past is not an indication of his qualications? Do we really want a president having access to TS Intel, while telling the FBI and all of us that the same rules do not apply to him the same way as any NCO/officer while he serves as their CINC? Hell, even civilian gov employees who have access to classified information cannot do what he did and get a security clearance past those that merely require a NAC.

I do not.

Although I am sure I’m not the first, I would like to add my voice to any others out there and call for Obama and his entire corrupt administration to step down. This may seem ineffectual right now but given time and enough voices who knows? We have to start somewhere...

Dr. Orly -- WRITE EMAILS TO GET ORLY ON TV http://defendourfreedoms.us/2009/02/20/letters-needed-to-the-world-over-with-raymond-arroyo-in-ewtn.aspx Letters Needed to The World Over with Raymond Arroyo, in EWTN Dear Citizens, We need to get Orly on TV, one show at a time. Unfortunately only a very small minority of American citizens know that Obama is not a Natural Born Citizen, and we, you and me, need to change that PRONTO. The first TV show for Orly should be The World Over with Raymond Arroyo, in EWTN. Orly told me that she would love to appear in that show. Why that show? It is outside the networks, it has over 100 million viewers worldwide, tens of millions of viewers in the United States , and the host, Raymond Arroyo, is unapologetically critical of Obama. Mr. Arroyo has opened the doors for us, especially for us. At the end of his last show, he said that once a month he will interview one guest selected by the viewers via email. Thatʼs us. I need 3000, yes thatʼs three thousand, of you to send an email to raymond@raymondarroyo.com with only the word: Topics in the subject line. Those are his specific instructions. In the email (please be very polite) tell Raymond that you want him to interview Dr. Orly Taitz, Esq., the lawyer who has a case pending in the United States Supreme Court challenging Obamaʼs Natural Born Citizenship. If we get her on TV, and tens of millions of Americans watch what she has to say, then the cat is out of the bag. This site has three hundred and fifty thousand (350,000) hits per week; I only need three thousand of you. I need three thousand Patriots to step forward. Please do your share. Help her! Step forward! Sincerely, Carlos Vazquez
