Skip to comments.Obama eligibility case lives! Supreme Court's own precedent cited in new demand for resolution
Posted on 08/18/2014 6:00:08 AM PDT by Ray76
The question of Barack Obamas eligibility to occupy the Oval Office under the Constitutions natural born citizen requirement is once again being appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court, which has refused to hear a number of previous cases.
Judges have ruled Obamas eligibility is a political question that is not for the courts to decide. They have argued the plaintiffs didnt have standing, the requirement that they have sustained or will sustain direct injury or harm that can be redressed by a court.
Now, however, a plaintiff has surfaced who claims he has suffered a specific and individual injury the $90 he is seeking to have returned by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

It’d be nice if it does go somewhere, but I’m thinking it won’t go anywhere. If it did, it would negate everything he inked.
Cautiously optimistic for a resolution, but my guess is that by the time they’re done, every anchor baby and illegal alien, along with the entire African continent, will all be Natural Born American citizens and signed up for obamacare.
To quote Dirty Harry, "Make my day!"
Sorry son, $90 is small claims territory, you have no standing in this court...
lol I thought I was the only one who uses “cautiously optimistic”. I also use “falsely optimistic”.
I guess I'm showing my age and need to step into this new century.
"Cautiously optimistic" about American politics is so 1980s.
"SAY WHAT THE LAW IS That is all I and my FRiends have been asking for the past 7 years in regard to Constitutional Eligibility.
I have no idea what the SCOTUS' answer might be is they deign to accept this appeal. Frankly, I don't even care. For this institution to have failed in its basic duty to the Republic and the COTUS is far worse than anything the gay disbarred Kenyan/Indonesian/Subject/Citizen could possibly have done.
Answer me this. What is an American Citizen? Howe can the offspring of aliens automatically receive citizenship? What is a Natural Born Citizen? Unless you are presently cashing a SCOTUS paycheck, do not even attempt an answer.
OBTW, totally wack-o brief. But the best of luck!
Isn’t $90 a rather small injury for a full-blown court case?
So a particularized injury is no longer enough, the particularized injury must be severe? Talk about moving the goal posts. I’ve come to expect that kind of crap from these attorneys in robes.
No it wouldn't. There is a legal doctrine called "Defacto Officer." Which means everything he did stays put.
That’s not the issue. The questions would be a) would a court even hear it? It’s small potatoes for even a small claims court, and b) could the worst verdict possible be enough of a threat to even bring out a response, rather than a simple default?
(I’m no attorney.)
I would like to believe you are right, but it is my experience you can't go too far wrong by always assuming that the worst possible outcome is the one which will happen.
Sure looks like it would apply according to the link Ray76 provided:
as a wise attorney once told me.. a little knowledge of the law can be a dangerous thing...if the defacto officer doctrine would apply, then the current case is moot...I did not see that being indicated in the case, did you?
And I don’t see that any court has recognized the validity of the claim, do you?
If they’re going to argue that all legislation signed into law by Obama is unenforceable, then I’d think they’d be able to find an injury greater than $90. Heck, Obamacare has cost me many times that already.
I presented my opinion, based on my research, you of course are free to disagree, I suggest you dig deeper into defacto officer doctrine
I simply pointed out that you didn’t seem to present anything that countered the OP’s source. I’m sure we’d all like to be enlightened by you.
