Obama Seizes Control of 'Second Highest Court'
News Max ^ | Jan 09, 2014 | John Gizzi

Posted on 01/10/2014 4:00:29 AM PST by Texas Fossil

The Senate is poised to confirm Robert L. Wilkins to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit — the final battle in a bruising war between the White House and Senate Republicans over the "second highest court in the land."

The D.C. Circuit deals with cases against the federal government. Anyone who has a complaint with a regulatory agency or wants to challenge an excess of the federal government usually winds up there.

>snip

In November, Obama effectively gained control of the 11-member court when Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid triggered the "nuclear option" — reducing the threshold needed to stop a filibuster from 60 votes to a simple majority.

The power grab continues. Obozo can see that he is being exposed and must suppress exposure in court at all cost.

AND November 2014 is coming.

The House should defund that court, or at least cut their funding. Let the caseload go to a court that has not been packed with traitors, or be delayed until the traitors die and are replaced by Americans.

I truly believe that we are one death away from permanent Democrat rule.
All Lord Obie needs is one of the four conservatives on the Supreme Court to die and SHAZAM.

Exactly. Yes, that is what must be done. But the defunding can only occur when conservatives hold House, Senate and White House. Until 2016 then, the DC Circuit is free to stop lawsuits against Obama’s federal agencies.

This isn't directed personally to you.

In all honesty, I would appreciate a well-thought vanity post by those who think something other than peaceful means will restore our freedoms.

Congress is popularly elected, and the president is elected every four years, so how do we revolt against ourselves? Keep the constitution? Amend it at the point of a bayonet? Maybe a national referendum to elect a despot for life who could be counted on to maintain order and stop the bloodshed?

If a nationwide or sectional Jeffersonian watering of the tree of liberty is point "A," I would like to know more about the intervening points "B-Y" that lead to the goal of freedom at point "Z."

You are correct.

It is deathly important that conservatives or at least the GOP regain Senate majority and increase House majority in November elections. It is each our responsibility to work like Trojans for an end to Dingy Harry’s rein and bridle nobama before they can load the SCOTUS.

I say conservative or a least the GOP because the relatively low numbers of hard rock conservatives running, but “half a glass” is a lot better than and empty one.

This is life or death for America as we know it, America can not afford another block of conservative voters to sit this one out just because they didn’t get the perfect candidate as happened in 2008 and 2012.

The leftist courts and El Presidente’s bureaucrats increasingly write the law, not congress.

The only powers Hisself doesn't exercise are those he doesn't think he can politically get away with.

Elections mean little more than pre-condonement, (if that is a word), or advance forgiveness of future crimes.

All the more reason to take the senate in ‘14, make sure they hold the nuke option and pay back the RATS. Hopefully, what goes round comes around.

If conservatives or the GOP had complete control, the left would do what they do - use other means to try to get their way. Boycotts, sit-ins/take-overs, riots. The problem is, the left is diametrically opposed to American values, traditions & laws. The left has effective control over most of the countries institutions, even if they all don’t realize it. They have brainwashed much of the country. This will not end well.

You do everything that you can within the confines of the US Constitution and the tools available to you as a civilized man... if ALL else fails... revolution... and that is the last option on the list. Why? Because millions of Americans will die if it ever happens and that should be avoided if at all possible... but never should it be avoided at ALL COSTS... because that would mean that the millions of Americans that have died to ensure our Freedom and Liberty would have died in vain. We owe it not only to ourselves and our future... we owe it to our past as well. That is why it must only be a last option when your back is against the wall... like the lives and times that our Founders endured. I pray it never happens... if it does... I will answer the call.

As I’m in my 72nd orbit around the Sun, I have some experience with these people. The Republic is finished. We are a European Socialist nation now. Our currency is devalued and we’re in debt that can’t be repaid. Congress is worthless, the USSC is compromised and the Executive Branch is ruling by EO and regulation. We are divided by conflicting cultures by design. I’ll just be a spectator.

Only trouble is, we’ve already got the House, and these candy-asses don’t have the guts to use the power they have to fight back. Why do you think taking the Senate will change that?

If they gain and keep complete control, there will be no spectators. They are not benign despots. These are truly evil vermin.

We saw these Fascists before, not that long ago. Less than 1 generation ago.

If we have become a European Socialist nation, why didn’t we become Norway? Those guys have no deficit and the government has stashed away about $170 thousand for each of its citizens from their oil money and subsequent investments. I was there a few years ago, a beautiful place. But no, we have to model ourselves after Greece....

“The power grab continues. Obozo can see that he is being exposed and must suppress exposure in court at all cost.”

Under the De Facto Officer Doctrine, a plaintiff addressing a grievance with the Federal Government can object to an appointee by an ineligible President. It is done with a motion to the Court:

MOTION FOR HEARING TO DETERMINE ELIGIBILITY OF PRESIDENT BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA II, DISQUALIFY THE HONORABLE (Name of Judge) DUE TO A TRESPASS UPON THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION

COMES NOW, Plaintiff (Name of Plaintiff) and moves this Court to conduct a hearing on the eligibility of the President of the United States Barack Hussein Obama II to make valid appointments to this Court and the qualification of The Honorable (Name of Judge) to hear this case upon objection by Plaintiff under the De Facto Officer Doctrine and states and alleges the following, to wit:

1) Plaintiff OBJECTS to all laws, rules, regulations, appointments, and executive orders of the ineligible President Barack Hussein Obama II;

2) Appointments made by an ineligible President of the United States are a trespass upon the United States Constitution, Article II, Section 2, Clause 2 of the United States Constitution, known as the Appointments Clause;

3) United States Citizens who obtained their citizenship by application of the Immigration and Naturalization Act, Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 (Pub.L. 82–414, 66 Stat. 163, as amended prior to January 20, 2009), and issued a Certificate of Naturalization at anytime in their lifetime are ineligible to hold the Office of the President of the United States, Schneider v. Rusk 377 U.S. 163 (No. 368), quoting Osborn v. Bank of United States, 9 Wheat. 738, 827. And see Luria v. United States, 231 U.S. 9, 22; United States v. MacIntosh, 283 U.S. 605, 624; Knauer v. United States, 328 U.S. 654, 658.;

4) Natural born citizenship status is not defined completely, but is not held by a person who is not a U.S. citizen, not held in perpetuity once established; nor is it held by a former U.S. citizen who has been issued a Certificate of Loss of Nationality;

5) President Barack Hussein Obama II was issued a Certificate of Naturalization in 1983 after living in the United States of America as a Legal Permanent Resident Alien from 1971 to 1983;

6) President Barack Hussein Obama II was inaugurated in January, 2009 and January, 2013 and sworn into office by Chief Justice John Roberts of the United States Supreme Court;

6) President Barack Hussein Obama II currently holds the Office of the President of the United States and is trespassing upon the United States Constitution because he does meet the Eligibility Clause to hold the Office of the President of the United States, Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 of the United States Constitution;

7) The appointments of an ineligible President currently occupying the Office of the President of the United States and are objectionable under the De Facto Officer Doctrine, Ryder v. United States, 515 U.S. 177 (1995);

Plaintiff prays for relief and requests a hearing to determine the eligibility of President Barack Hussein Obama II, the validity of appointments of an ineligible President after an objection is lodged while the usurper holds the office, and for the Honorable (Name of Judge) to recuse from this case.

Would be nice if it was that simple.

The issue is constrained by the powers who put him in office.

He is a Post Turtle.

Is obvious he does not belong there.
He did not get there by himself.
He does not know what to do while he is there.
Question is what fools put him there.

Those fools are not solely the marginal information voters and useful idiots. Voter fraud was committed using outsider’s money.

And so a Tyrant slowly consolidates his power.

The bastard needs to be impeached, all his appointments need to be removed and each and every bill he signed voided.
