Skip to comments.The Known Facts Currently PROVE He is not a Legal President
Posted on 04/19/2011 8:00:40 PM PDT by Uncle Sham
Fact Number One
Congress is REQUIRED to ensure that the President elect is eligibile for the office or they must name a replacement if the Vice President elect is also ineligible. (Twentieth Amendment, section three)
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.
Fact Number Two
The burden of proof is on the President elect to prove eligibility. The sequence of words from section three stating "if the President elect shall have failed" is describing an action by the "President elect" that he failed at.
Fact Number Three
The eligibility requirements in Article Two, section one clearly state that NO PERSON who fails to meet the eligibility requirements can serve as President. "No Person" leaves absolutely no wiggle room for anyone who might possibly fool his way into being sworn in through fraudulent representation or Congressional neglect in enforcing section three of the Twentieth amendment.
" 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.
Fact Number Four
Since Congress must act if the President elect fails to qualify, Congress must be made aware of whether they must act or not. This means that a legal "qualification" is fully known by Congress and that there is no mystery whether someone was eligible to serve or not. That is, if that "qualification" was made.
Fact Number Five
We have mystery about the eligibility of the person currently calling himself "President". Nothing but mystery.
Fact Number Six
Since we have "mystery" this means that a "qualification" was NOT made and thus the President elect has "failed to qualify" and cannot be serving legally as President.
Fact Number Seven
"We have no birth certificate" EQUALS "We have a usurper".
Fact Number Eight
It is the duty of Congress to immediately address this issue as per section three of the Twentieth amendment or they are breaking their oath of office from Article Six to "support this Constitution".
Throw Obama out the next election...
President Bush was born in Mexico, and he was president for 8 years.
“....a Congress unwilling to address it.”
Of course they’re not willing to address it — many of them are the reason 0 ended up in the White Hut.
Congress qualified Urkel and there is no appeal. That fact trumps everything else.
However, if even ONE state passes a law requiring candidates show a long form Birth certificate then Urkel is done for 2012.
If you have to show a birth certificate to play little league baseball, is there even a question that it must be shown to be POTUS?
What are you talking about? GW Bush was born in New Have Ct. GHW Bush was born in Milton, Ma.
Congress must act? Or what? Is there one person you voted for in the last election who has asked Obama to prove his citizenship?
??? George W was born in New Haven, Connecticut. George H.W. was born in Milton, Massachusetts.
Before he enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation:"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."
They don't give a crap. And, ALL OF THEM would be implicated in a malpractice of their duties were it to be discovered we have an usurper in the office. It's less career limiting to accuse birthers of being crazy rather than looking into this as they're afraid of what they might find.
“President Bush was born in Mexico, and he was president for 8 years.”
Go back to DU, puke. George W Bush was born in Connecticut.
You are just a hater
This case has been in the court system all along and they are totally corrupt...not even willing to hear the case. We KNOW it is not about a birth certificate since he actually admits to being fathered by a British citizen. There is no rule of law in this country.
A little proof would be greatly appreciated.
” 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.
Yes, he is shrouded in secrecy and questions. He is a completely unknown, and completely dangerous guy. But please, don’t let this be your swan song of reasons to oust him.
The eligibility question will be the conquering blow of anyone who stands against him in the next election. The ONLY reason we can legitimize the eligibility question is when we ask “Why is he doing SO MUCH to cover his past?” and “Simply SHOW the birth certificate!”
The guy was likely born in the U.S.. We can’t go after him based on this. We need to go after why, and how is being so secretive and so shady. Certainly not presidential material, this one.
And we need to ask this not to his face - But to the face of his party. Ask the Democrats why they made Hillary concede to him, when she had the Superdelegate votes. Ask why they railroaded her in favor of this empty suit. Ask why they follow him, Lock-step, when they even agree that Bush got it way worse. Ask questions of the party.
Barry Soetoro has no business being president.
