Posted on 07/28/2009 9:43:04 AM PDT by MindBender26
Behind the scenes, at many military bases across the country and around the world, a not-too quiet challenge is developing against Barack Obama and his questionable qualifications to be President of the United States.
Most FReepers are familiar with the ongoing civil litigation against Obama. Plaintiffs claim he is not constitutionally qualified to be president because he does not meet the legal description of a natural-born citizen.
Obamas lawyers have never entered pleadings on the MERITS of the plaintiffs cases. They oppose the plaintiffs suits on the issue of standing. They claim the plaintiffs do not have a right to sue. Generally, that standing claim is well-founded. Giving every citizen the right to sue the president would be a nightmare. Can you imagine George Bush defending 10,000,000 individual suits by Dems over the war in Iraq?
But recently, one plaintiff had a strong chance of being given standing to sue. The plaintiff was an Army Reserve Major, Stefan Frederick Cook, from the Tampa area. His call-up to active duty positioned him as a person who could demonstrate the likelihood of real damages if Obama was not a legally-elected president. Cook could be killed, wounded or even charged as a war criminal if Obama was not legally the president.
He sued, claiming Obama was not legally qualified to be President, not legally qualified to order him to do anything.
The judge was set to begin preliminary hearings when the government lawyers dropped a legal bomb. They canceled Maj. Cooks orders for the obvious purpose of denying him standing. With Major Cook longer on activation orders, the case was moot and was dismissed by the judge.
This hugely significant legal surrender by the government was noticed by every lawyer in the country watching this issue. It also immediately became an enormous topic of conversation in every barracks in America. If Obama was willing to cancel one soldiers deployment orders because of a court challenge to his right to be president, what would he do the next time someone raised the issue?
As a result, service members and lawyers began action immediately. It is believed that as many as 100 lawyers are preparing to file litigation such as Maj. Cooks. This litigation would be in many courts across the country and put a huge strain on the Obama-DNC legal team. Do they cancel 100 sets of orders this week, only to face 1000 suits next week?
Even worse, sources close to some of the potential litigants tell me that at least four lawyers, including one very well known conservative Vietnam veteran-lawyer, are seeking enough clients so they can petition the court for the establishment of a Class of Plaintiffs in a proposed class action case. If that happens, then every military service member on orders for SWA would be covered.
At that point, Obama has no viable legal option. He has proven himself unwilling to try the case on its merits, and willing to cancel orders to avoid having to face discovery. How can he be POTUS and CINC if he cannot issue orders to the military he claims to command?
From there, every time Obama tries to act under color of law in any matter, military of not, someone sues and Obamas action ceases.
This is an important turning point in a case of incredible constitutional and legal significance.
Just release the long-form birth certificate. That’s the best evidence.
The main factor driving my suspicions of SOME kind of problem is Obama himself.
This is beginning to remind me of Nixon and the tapes.
Should be interesting how they handle this (if true). One thing is clear...it ain’t going away.
This might explain what is happening right now. The attack has been widespread,vicious, and relentless.
I am not sure you could keep this kind of thing quiet..so it may be rumbling through the inner sanctum and thus the call to arms from Rahm.
Wouldn’t it be ironic if this pushed congress towards increased tort reform?!
This will never go away until the truth is known!
like, they are leaving town? the democrat party is up to its neck in this if zerO is proven fraudulent
Now don’t leave us dangling....give us a litle more info, what do you mean “more tomorrow”?
If this happened under Bush or McCain, we would call it mutiny or desertion. It’s the same thing under a president we dislike. The vast majority of people in the armed forces understand that Obama is the Commander in Chief and do their duty.
It is very irresponsible for Freepers to support these actions. I don’t think the birth certificate “issue” is real, but even if it is, there are plenty of civillians to pursue it.
That’s what I’ve been saying all along....a class action
suite. Yeah, it’s about time....
Please keep us informed, I am afraid for the Republic.
I was willing to consider that BO was not a lawful President until Bill O’Reilly (BO - hmmm coincident?)
pronounced him native born because Hawaii sent him his birth certificate — guess that closes the case —— what a buffoon!
Under what national authority is our military being sent to war? Kenya? Indonesia?
IF.... Oboma was born in Hawaii in 1955, Hawaii was not a U.S. state at the time. They didn't gain statehood until 1959. IF....he was born before Hawaii got U.S. statehood. He was, if fact, born on foreign soil under a foreign government.
Just a thought.
Almost all our Military officers take this oath seriously:
“I, [name], do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”
God bless them and God bless the United States of America.
Don't know why I didn't make the connection between the outcome of the Maj. Cook case and the sudden barrage of naysaying from the MSM over the last week, but there is is.
It's pretty obvious to me, that the order from Rahm and Axelrod went out to the Obama Ministry of Propaganda (aka, the MSM) that the eligibility issue had to be crushed with overwhelming force RIGHT NOW.
This is obviously why. They're scared to death now.
Who is the author of this article? Is this just another opinion piece fron an anonymous source?
I guess you haven’t been following along.... the courts keep ruling that we as citizens do not have the right to ensure that our President complies with the mandates of the constitution. Therefore, there are not civilians who are able to persue this action - many have tried - none were allowed.
Is it unreasonable to expect a person to prove “natural born citizenship” when it is clearly delineated in the constitution? Heck, my son had to show a birth certificate to play little league, and some might argue tha the Presidency is a little more important than second base!
