Congressional analysis: Obama eligibility never was confirmed
WND ^ | NOVEMBER 8, 2010 | Jerome R. Corsi

Posted on 11/08/2010 5:11:53 PM PST by RobinMasters

A congressional document that has been posted on the Internet confirms no one – not Congress, not the states and not election officials – bothered to check Barack Obama's eligibility to be president, and in fact, that status remains undocumented to this day.

It's because state and federal law did not require anyone in Congress or elsewhere to check to see if Obama was a "natural born Citizen" under the meaning of Article 2, Section 1 of the Constitution, according the document.

The analysis by the Congressional Research Service, a research arm of the U.S. Congress, openly admits no one in the federal government, including Congress, ever asked to see Obama's long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate. In fact, it explains no one was required to do so.

Technically, the CRS is a public policy research arm of the United States Congress that is organized as a legislative branch agency within the Library of Congress; the CRS works exclusively for members of Congress, congressional committees and congressional staff in an advisory capacity, answering questions.

Nothing pisses me off more than idiot politician who refuse to follow the law “because it would case chaos”

I say BRING IT ON

We have to do more than JUST SAY that the law applies to everyone in our country.

Paying lip service to the law is a road that leads to much much more chaos.

Of course no one checked on his eligibility. They would risk being called racists.

Obama is payback for Chester Alan Arthur (whose eligibility is also disputed).

Before they voted to confirm the election the “Electors” had the right and obligation to confirm his eligibility. They DID NOTHING even though they knew there were questions yet unanswered. That amounts to malfeasance and possibly TREASON!

The world expects us to operate morally and fiscally within lawful parameters and with Obama, those parameters have both been breached.

Obama introduced as "fellow Kenyan"

It seems no matter where President Obama goes, he continues to be called a "fellow Kenyan" for some strange reason by Kenyan officials.

As reporter Jake Tapper of ABC News notes, "There was an odd little moment with Spice Jet founder Bhupendra Kansagra when President Obama spoke to CEOs Saturday in Mumbai.

MR. KANSAGRA: "Thank you. Welcome, Mr. President, to India. As a fellow Kenyan, I'm very proud to see that you have made --

THE PRESIDENT: "Made something of myself." (Laughter.)

It’s more than non-feasance, it is mal-feasance because there was clearly enough noise over the eligibility issue long BEFORE the election took place. No, feigning ignorance by those who are ciminally liable will not work as a defense for those who now need to go to jail over this.

It's because state and federal law did not require anyone in Congress or elsewhere to check to see if Obama was a "natural born Citizen"

I thought that duty fell to the states' Attorneys General.

Not true. According to other documents, Nancy Pelousy and Howard Dean allegedly certified his “eligibility” documents.

Most of us know that they were fraudulent, but Pelousy and Dean certified that they saw his documents.

I’m not defending anyone, particularly zero, Dean or Pelousy, but I’m taking issue with the report. Something’s fishy.

Simple solution, to make sure this never happens again —

Propose an Amendment to the Constitution to update Article III, Section 1. (I’ll leave it to sharper minds to provide the actual verbiage.) The Amendment should (a) define natural born and (b) provide a mechanism for verification, along with (c) a method for appealing a rejection.

It won’t be easy but it will solve the problem, permanently.

I've seen that theory proposed and the facts could well fit.

There was a story earlier today that ex-CIA agents were on somebody's mission to go around the world rounding up documentation of Zer0's furr'in exploits.

It may get interesting soon.

I’ve always wondered why it was reasonable for John McCain to be subjected to Congressional hearings to determine if he were eligible to run for President, but completely out of the question for Barack Obama.

I hope some states actually do enact legislation requiring Presidential candidates to provide documentation of eligibility before they are permitted to run in state primaries or general elections.

If at least one state refuses to allow candidates to run for election or re-election until they provide authentic, verifiable proof of eligibility as a natural born citizen it will be the end of the socialist road for Obama.

Here is where the Congress is COMMANDED by the U.S. Constitution to verify eligibility of a President-elect or name a replacement.

The Twentieth Amendment, Section 3 reads as follows:

”3. If, at the time fixed for the beginning of the term of the President, the President elect shall have died, the Vice President elect shall become President. If a President shall not have been chosen before the time fixed for the beginning of his term, or if the President elect shall have failed to qualify, then the Vice President elect shall act as President until a President shall have qualified; and the Congress may by law provide for the case wherein neither a President elect nor a Vice President elect shall have qualified, declaring who shall then act as President, or the manner in which one who is to act shall be selected, and such person shall act accordingly until a President or Vice President shall have qualified.”

Exhibit B U. S. Code, CITE: 3USC19

TITLE 3--THE PRESIDENT, CHAPTER 1- PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS AND VACANCIES

Sec. 19. Vacancy in offices of both President and Vice President; officers eligible to act

”(a)(1) If, by reason of death, resignation, removal from office, inability, or failure to qualify, there is neither a President nor Vice President to discharge the powers and duties of the office of President, then the Speaker of the House of Representatives shall, upon his resignation as Speaker and as Representative in Congress, act as President. “

Exhibit C: U. S. Constitution, Article Six Oath of Office for elected officials:

” The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.”

The portion in bold stating “or if the President elect shall have failed to qualify” in section three is particularly interesting in that it plainly seems to infer that a “qualification” of some sort must be made in order to serve as President. Certainly, one cannot argue that it does not require a qualification process for one to “qualify”. To infer that the lack of a “specified” qualification process means that stated eligibility “qualifications” for the office of president can be ignored is fallacious. The wording of this passage in the twentieth amendment clearly infers that a qualification is required, regardless of how this is done.

There is only one set of qualifications listed anywhere in the Constitution that are not health related and they are listed in Article two, section one.

” No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.”

To satisfy meeting the requirement of the twentieth amendment to “qualify”, a president elect must present evidence that he meets it’s requirements for eligibility to serve. This means that a proper birth certificate HAD to be presented by the president elect in order to serve as president. In fact, without establishing whether or not the President elect is "qualified", Congress would not know whether or not to step in and name a temporary replacement as the Amendment requires. Certainly, this means that the proof of "qualifications" must be presented to Congress.

If this was done, where is that certificate and to whom was it presented? If this was done, why would we not have the right to verify and inspect it under the freedom of information act?

If it was NOT done, then under the provisions of the twentieth amendment, Barrack Obama has “failed to qualify” and should not be serving as president of the United States of America.

Based upon the above, I conclude that:

1. We currently have a vacancy at President because no one has yet “qualified” as required in the Twentieth amendment. The terms "The President elect shall have failed to qualify" clearly places this burden upon the President elect and not on someone raising their hand in objection.

2. Anyone serving in Congress (see “Congress” in bold in Exhibit A), or anyone who is currently serving under the oath of office in Article six has "standing" and can DEMAND that their oaths be met by receiving proper “qualifying” documentation from Mr. Obama. This charade at the time of counting the Electoral College votes does not limit their ability to do so at any time they so choose. The very fact that they are duty-bound by oath to "support" the Constitution REQUIRES them to respond to any and all attacks against it. No judge can deny any of them the standing to do so. It would ask them to break the law in their effort to enforce the law.

3. We need to start pressing legal charges against all of our local representatives and senators covered by the oath of office in Article six for disobeying their oaths to support the Constitution as it pertains to the language of section three of the Twentieth amendment. Put PRESSURE on them to represent the document that gives them their authority in the first place. We are looking into how best to do this down here. We all should be looking into this approach. NOW.
