WND Exclusive BORN IN THE USA? D.C. court case demands Obama explain eligibility Contends president's allegiance is to Britain, Kenya, Indonesia Posted: January 29, 2010 12:20 am Eastern By Bob Unruh © 2010 WorldNetDaily A prominent attorney who has shepherded a number of high-profile legal cases challenging Barack Obama'seligibility to be president has brought a "Quo Warranto" case to district court in Washington, D.C., alleging his allegiances have included Britain, Kenya and Indonesia. A Quo Warranto action, first recorded some 800 years ago, essentially is a demand to know by what authority a public figure is acting. The case, brought by California attorney Orly Taitz on behalf of herself, was assigned to Chief Judge Royce Lamberth. Taitz told WND that in a separate action she has filed a notice of appeal with the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals of the dismissal of a case she brought on behalf of Ambassador Alan Keyes and dozens of other individuals in California challenging Obama's eligibility. She previously attempted Quo Warranto cases on behalf of government officials, without response. This time she filed the action directly with the court on her own behalf. "The case revolves around the federal question of eligibility of the president under Quo Warranto," she wrote.

You shills ought to give this up. His mother was an American citizen, and any child born to an American citizen is an American citizen, no matter where in the world the child is born.
Obama father was not a citizen of U.S.A. so he’s
ineligible to be my president. He is a muslim, radical,
racist, america hating scumbag.
...and you ought to educate yourself. AFAIK, nobody disputes Obama’s American citizenship—what is in doubt is whether or not Obama is a NATURAL-BORN citizen as required by the Constitution.
Give the definition of what a natural born citizen is according to the Constitution.
That is not the same as a constitutionally required Natural Born Citizen. We will give up when Nobama produces a real birth certificate.
His mother was too young to do that.
The white house is full of muslim, homosexual, racist,
radical communist chitheads. And Michelle is the ugliest woman to ever sleep in the now black house.
It is ironic that you should use a word like shill to describe people on a thread like this.
People, like myself, who believe the constitution is worthy to defend are entitled to see the evidence that is admissible in a court of law that shows Barack Hussein Obama is a natural born citizen. The first item in that determination is his birth record(s) from the state of Hawaii that shows the hospital and his parent(s) (I am not discounting he could have been a bastard child on his original record).
That is correct. However, the Constitutional requirements for a President are "Natural born citizen". That means both parents must be American citizens, and the child is to be born on soverign American soil. (That includes consulates or military bases.)
Nope, not according to the law in effect at the time he was born, and many years afterward. That knowledge is basic to understanding the whole matter. I suggest you read up on it.
Last night.O’Reilly held up a copy of Obama’s birth announcement in the Hawaii paper as proof of O’s Hawaiian birth. When any of my grandchildren were born all I had to do was e-mail an announcement to the local paper, about their births, and it would be printed in the next edition. So, I say big deal O’Reilly. He also held up the short form birth certificate as proof.
Your message has merit.
Well now you know someone. I do.
When I return to the USA, my citizenship is doubted and so I must show a passport. To get my first passport I had to show a certified copy of my birth certificate. I can put my hands on such a copy and on all of my old passports within minutes. The only reason I might not want to show any of these to anyone would be if I wanted to travel to an Arab country, some might not like the Israeli stamps on the visa pages. (And soon maybe even England won't like them either!)
Further there is no evidence, nor any suspicion, that I ever was a citizen of some other country nor that I renounced my American citizenship.
By comparison, the is such evidence that Obama was an Indonesian citizen. There is evidence that his parents renounced his American citizenship on his behalf. There is evidence that he was born in Kenya. He refuses to make certified copies of his birth certificate available or to produce his old passports available for inspection.
I cannot imagine why anyone would NOT harbor some doubt about Obama citizenship.
Read about Breckenridge Long in the Post and eMail. Long was later AG for FDR. Woodrow Wilson's opponent in 1916, Charles Evans Hughes, had a British father. Breckenridge wrote a perfectly clear essay for the Chicago Law Journal explaining that Hughes, later chief justice of the supreme court, was ineligible because he was born of British parents. Read about Dr. David Ramsay, President of the Congress United (Continental Congress) in 1785, before the Constitution. Ramsay was the author of History of the U.S. Before the Revolution. He wrote an essay about citizenship, restating and explaining the history of the definition “born in the country of citizen parents.” You can find the Ramsay essay in the appendix to the Kerchner Appuzo suit at http://puzo1.blogspot.com.
If the house is returned to conservative majority in November, there may be the will to raise the issue. The supreme court will need to confirm the historical - common law - definition. Obama appointees will probably need to recuse themselves. Turmoil will follow, but no worse than the the impending failure of our economic system. Then there will be another election, since every senator refused to investigate Obama’s eligibility and both Hillary and Joe Biden were among them. Nancy Pelosi signed at least two vouchers stating that Obama was a natural born citizen. This is not about birth certificates, it is about dereliction of duty by our representatives. Obama is patently ineligible because of a definition confirmed by three supreme court chief justices, Marshall, Waite, and, ironically, Charles Evans Hughes in Perkin v. Elg in 1936, even though he tried to ignore Article II Section 1 when he ran for president. It was also clearly stated by the remarkable author of the 14th Amendment John Bingam, the abolitionist congressman from Ohio who prosecuted Lincoln's assassins.
Either you are being reimbursed to post this or you honestly support Obama.
Why would you support this absolutely obvious imbecile of a person that for every apparent reason is trying to change America into something that America doesn’t want to be?
Do you have any children? Do you want them to live in Obamas future ideas of America?
Can you honestly say from the heart that Obama loves America and has its BEST interests in mind? Have you ever seen anything he has done that is truly positive?
I’m actually hoping you are getting paid to post this because I can understand jobs are scarce but if its otherwise then I truly feel sorry for you.
Thanks for your explanation. But I doubt any republicans will stand up for the constitution if they haven’t by now.
I never said I support the 0ne.
But by law he’s an American citizen. I think you birthers are the shills for the dimmocraps.
So I guess you feel we should just wait out his 4 year term as the great affirmative action first black American person to be elected as a President?
Read the years in residence and age of parent part as well...his mother did not meet the criteria.
Uncalled for. Just lowers us to their level.
Under what name(s) was/were Barry Soetoro Barack Hussein Obama's passport(s) issued, by what nation and with what documentation?
And you should learn the law that existed in 1961(and still does today with some slight changes). His mother didn't meet the criteria necessary for him to be a US citizen if he was born out of the country, to ONE US citizen parent, it has to be two if the criteria isn't met. Look it up or simply pay attention. It has been explained about 10,000 times on FR alone. Why else do you think Bozo is fighting so hard to keep this out of the courts?
I am not a birther but I would love to see this guy's BC, the real one, not the fake POS paper that was touted as his.
Don't break out the champaign yet. All he did was render the original MTD moot when Orly amended her complaint. A little bit of legalese that birthers (who've never shown any understanding of how the legal process is played out) will naturally misinterpret as a huge victory.
Here we go???
This would be a nice quote, but it doesn't appear to be accurate, at least when I scanned its text. (Link to Sen Res 511 here)
Could you provide a direct link? I don't doubt that the Ramsay essay exists but I have not been able to find a copy. There was one at scribd, but it has apparently been pulled.
He can(?) be an American citizen, but there is NO way he IS or have ever BEEN a natural born citizen. Native citizen, maybe, but also in question. Dual, triple and quadruple of his citizenship are at play here. Illegal to occupy the White House as the “Resident”!!!
"But for the first time in my lifetime (2008) I am proud of my country", hello???
That is a legitimate slam. Physical appearance is not. Ugly on the inside? You bet!
I can just see it now. The claim will be "Mr. Dunham was elected even though he wasn't eligible so I should be able to run for POTUS too. A precedent has been set and it must be followed."
Somebody had better act soon!
“Give the definition of what a natural born citizen is according to the Constitution. “
Impossible, since the Constitution doesn’t define natural born citizen. The Courts and Congress have held it to mean anyone born in the USA, or born abroad of two American parents.
“By comparison, the is such evidence that Obama was an Indonesian citizen. There is evidence that his parents renounced his American citizenship on his behalf.”
The Supreme Court has ruled that the actions of a parent cannot change the citizenship of someone born in the USA. Nor is there evidence (in the form of legal documents) that Obama was made an Indonesian citizen.
If Obama was born outside the USA then you are entirely correct - he cannot be President. That will require proof that overturns the COLB from Hawaii.
“Since Obama told us that his father was never a citizen, and was in fact a British subject, making Junior a British Subject, no birth certificate, and no other document is necessary or relevant. Obama is not a natural born citizen.”
50 states, the voters, Electoral College, Congress and the Supreme Court disagree. I don’t know who else you think will change the definition and overturn the election for you...
By what law? Is it the one that says if you claim it you are? (And he really has to be a natural-born citizen, but I guess you think those are just superfluous words in the Constitution.)
If you want to do ANYTHING in this country that requires citizenship, you must produce some official document that is evidence of citizenship. Period. Except for some who think that to be President, this is not necessary.
The magic word!!
Time to feed the pests!!!
Supreme court disagree on WHAT???
Really? Could you point me to such a decision? I do not doubt that someone in Obama's circumstance is entitled to reclaim his supposed citizenship, but it is my understanding that some action would be required on his part to do so.
All the right reasons to not just sit and wait.
With limited tools and resources we are just like the crew of Apollo 13 back many years ago, if we do not use every tool at our disposal we will perish.
If the constitution says why and who as the Law of the Land then ignoring it now will only compound further mistakes down the road.
The bottom line is this, Obama failed to qualify, its as simple as that.
Failed to qualify.
And he reminds us every day what a bunch of suckers we are, publicly mocking Americans that defy him, all because of the simple truth that he was born with divided loyalties.
Failed to qualify, failed in loyalty.
You Obami shills should just give it up and demand your commie provide his documents to the court.
There is no certificate of anything from Hawaii. All there have been are some disputed jpeg images which supposedly, if presented and valid, would not be sufficient documentation to enable one to obtain a passport.
.any child born to an American citizen is an American citizen, no matter where in the world the child is born.
WRONG....I was born in Germany, to American citizen parents, in a US military hospital. When I came to the USA I had to be naturalized...and have naturlization (citizenship) papers.
Any military dependent born overseas to American parents BEFORE 1965 was not considered a “citizen” for they had to have naturlization papers.
Obama, born in 1961, would have to have been NATURALIZED if he was born outside the US....regardless of the citizenship of the parents. He thus would not be NATURAL BORN
That would be news to thousands of children of American servicemen in Vietnam, Korea, Phillipines and Thailand.
You know, it's a funny thing. There are these things that are called "laws" and they don't always turn out to be what you imagine them to be.
