Eligibility challenge returns to haunt Florida
WorldNetDaily ^ | December 1, 2012 | Bob Unruh

A lawsuit challenging Barack Obama’s presence on the 2012 presidential election ballot because of questions over his constitutional eligibility that was thrown out by a judge who earlier determined it wasn’t timely has returned to haunt election officials in the state with a request that the Obama victory results be quashed.

“Defendant Barack Hussein Obama is a direct threat to the safety and security of the United States, and its Constitution, which plaintiff must protect and defend by oath,” according to the complaint, which was delivered to Secretary of State Ken Detzner today.

The case earlier this year was dismissed by Circuit Judge Terry Lewis, who said Obama’s eligibility could not be challenged at that time because under Florida election law, technically, Obama hadn’t been nominated to the position.

As WND reported, Michael Voeltz, who identifies himself as “a registered member of the Democratic Party, voter and taxpayer in Broward County,” had challenged Obama’s eligibility, arguing that the “natural born citizen” clause was rightly understood in historical context to mean a child not only born in the U.S., but born to two American-citizen parents, so as not to have divided loyalties. Obama, however, readily admits to being born a dual citizen because of his father’s British citizenship.

In his decision then, Lewis noted that the United States Supreme Court has concluded that “every person born in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction .......

It matters not.
Never let the Marxsist/Muslim usurper sob rest.
Keep digging- phony birth certificate, ‘Fast and Furious’, Benghazi, his sordid hidden past (that he’s paid millions to lawyers to keep under wrap)

The Supremes are praying this won’t ever get to them... they certainly don’t have the fortitude to rule according to the Constitution on this issue...but then that rarely stops them... see Obamacare for example !

State courts in Indiana and Georgia ruled that Obama is a natural born citizen. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit ruled that Obama is a natural born citizen. (I am talking here only about decisions on the merits, not the 100+ decisions throwing out eligibility suits on standing or other procedural grounds). The Supreme Court has declined to hear appeals from any of these cases, without a single recorded dissent. They are unlikely to ever agree to hear this issue unless there is a split of authority in the lower courts.

Next we’ll have people running for president who really don’t have any idea who their father is, much less his nationality. So much for two US citizen parents. I suppose that will be fine too.

The supremes will probably say that the election eligibility issue is really a tax levied by congress on behalf of those without genuine paperwork.

Determination of eligibility is up to the states. No court has, nor should have power to remove a Presidential candidate from consideration by electors.

Can you cite specifically when and what was the actual ruling? And, dismissing the case because of some phony “does not have standing” is not a ruling on the merits of a case

Also, any of these judges subpeona and VIEW the official copy of Obama’s Hawaii Birth Certificate? And, not the two fake ones Obama’s people have produced

Last time I checked there has been ZERO rulings and decisions based on Obama being eligible or Natural Born.

Unfortunately, there are way too many Obama Supporters on FR, and not enough pro-Eligibility people.

I am not counting rulings based on procedural grounds, of which there are over 140. The Indiana courts held, on the merits, that Obama is a natural born citizen because he was born in Hawaii. Ankeny v. Indiana, 916 N.E.2d 678 (2009). The Georgia courts held the same thing in Farrar v. Obama (2012), which was appealed up to the U.S. Supreme Court (which refused to hear the appeal). A federal court in Virginia held the same thing in Tisdale v. Obama, which was affirmed by the 4th Circuit on June 5, 2012.

None of these courts subpoenaed Obama's original birth certificate, but the Georgia courts heard testimony from supposedly-expert witnesses claiming that what Obama posted on the internet was a forgery; the judge found that the witnesses were not "experts" and that their testimony was not credible.

There is a case pending now in federal court in Mississippi, Taitz v. Democrat [sic] Party, in which the defense has submitted certified documents from Hawaii. That case is awaiting a decision.

They were “experts” called by Orly Taitz, who were totally unqualified. Neither was a certified document examiner. One was a scanner salesman.

I think this is the goofball that claimed he found "layers" in the document that proved it was a fraud. If it's the same guy he had a bunch of youtube videos.

You don't have to be an "Obama supporter" to believe that: (1) the courts have held that anyone born on U.S. soil is a natural born citizen, and (2) Hawaii has said that Obama was born in Hawaii.

I am far from an "Obama supporter," and I voted for Governor Romney, but pursuing eligibility cases in court after nearly 150 straight losses is just a waste of time.

State courts in Indiana and Georgia ruled that Obama is a natural born citizen.

The state court in Indiana did NOT rule that Obama is a natural-born citizen. The "court" that "ruled" on Obama in Georgia was an administrative law judge who based his "opinion" on the Indiana decision which never said Obama was a natural-born citizen along with an undocumented consideration that Obama was born in Hawaii. I'm pretty sure whatever U.S. court of appeals decision you're referring to is equally deficient in legal foundation.

No you don't, but you would have to be very gullible or a paid shill.

Let’s just wait for the election...

You can’t still possibly believe that the WHLFCOLB.pdf is a true scan of an original paper document bound in book in HI?

Can you?

Really?
