Thank you for not asking for "some nutcase to explain this shell of a case," Jay.

It is basically the same as the Donofrio case, but better crafted with a better route to the SCOTUS:

...and above in the blog.

This is his primary contention, as quoted from his written submission to the SCOTUS:

CONCLUSION

For all of the foregoing reasons, it is respectfully submitted that a natural born Citizen – as required by Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5, of the Constitution of the
United States - is a person born in the United States to parents who are both citizens of the United States, and as such Barack Obama would not be eligible to be president.

Let’s get to the truth. That’s all I want. The Justices just have to do their jobs. Just the fact that the Justices are paying attention to these cases gives me hope.

Hey, I’ll take one parent and born on American soil to qualify as natural born. I don’t think Obama can even clear that bar.

Just hear the case SCOTUS. That’s what the founding Fathers put you in place for.

If Obama is really a natural born citizen but is just hiding his real birth certificate because Wilt Chamberlain is his Dad and it’s embarassing, than fine.

He would still be my President. I’m an American and I would wish him Godspeed and much success.

Just get it over with.

Well craft, poorly crafted, witch crafted, whatever... Just tell the freakin' justices that Obama has not yet demonstrated that he meets the qualifications as specified in Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5, of the Constitution of the United States.

Wouldn’t it be diabolical if Donofrio focused so much attention on his own case knowing that it would be thrown out by the Supreme Court and be a straw man and that actually this Wrotnowski case was explicitly placed under the radar to escape the attention of the MSM and other critics? If so this strategy was brilliant.

God, when I hear comments like that I am honor bound to say that "You, sir, due expressly to the amount of log in time you have on FR, are free to express your well respected thoughts...

But what I want to say, in my loudest voice from the top of the highest mountain is:

STFU and go to a knitting thread...leave these threads for real patriots and get your nurse to push your out in your wheelchair to the end of your long dock on Golden Pond, you freakin' dinosaur, while you dream that no one takes away your evenings of drinking boxed wine from your refrigerator.

Then you can have your nurse wheel you back in to bed and leave the country to people that care.

Of course I would never say that because I have manners and respect for FReepers who have been here forever...even the ones who show contempt for the constitution and show a willingness to be defeated in obvious abandon for the flag and what ot stands for. God bless you, sir.

This is going to lead to unforeseen, unintended and unknown ramifications.

While the MSM has characterized this as tinfoil hat stuff, the public is now at least aware that there is a controversy.

If the Supremes or the Electoral College don't require Obama to turn over his birth certificate for a look-see, I guarantee you that some tabloid is going to get a copy through a back channel (who will be well-compensated), and the fun will begin.

Congress screwed up the safe harbor for Ozero as far as the mother is an American citizen so the child is oddly enough in the person of Winston Churchill.

His mother was born in Brooklyn NY. He was born in England but if his mother's citizenship counted then why did they make him an honorary American citizen in 1963?

It’s really not that sinister or complicated. I was thinking along your lines until I actually researched it.

My guess is that Obama was born in Kenya. Other FReepers have correctly pointed out that if his mother was an American he can be born on the moon and he would still be an American citizen.

The law says his American mother had to be a citizen for 5 years after the age of 14 if Dad was a foreigner. Anne Dunham was 18 when she gave birth. Do the math.

That’s why this is being covered up.

That Constitution is a pesky document. That’s why libs wipe their ass with it.

Much like every other law that is Unconstitutional this will probably go nowhere. Does that make you happy?

Jeezus! Give it up people! He aint going no where! SCOTUS will punt!

What is your problem? it is not an unreasonable request that the man produce evidence of his eligibility.

To this day no one has any knowledge of where precisely he was born.

No one has produced conclusive evidence he was even born in the USA.

All the media claims that he was born in Hawaii are based on the false assumption that having a Hawaiian birth certificate means you must have been born in Hawaii.

McCain, when challenged, produced full documentation in five minutes flat.

0bama has spent a fortune on resisting giving any information whatsoever despite the fact we know he has birth certificate that he could easily release on file in Hawaii.

Ginsberg didn't want the Court to look at this case and Scalia did. The case was refiled and Scalia referred the case to the Court. I'll have to read this case, but this is on the issue that Obama must show his Certificate of Live Birth. The Constitutional issue of Obama being a natural born citizen is the question. Scalia sees what we see now let's see if he can push this case far enough.

"This is going to lead to unforeseen, unintended and unknown ramifications." by Thumper1960 (A modern so-called "Conservative" is a shadow of a wisp of a vertebrate human being.)

Now, Felipe de Jesus CALDERON Hinojosa & Schwarzenegger can run for US el presidente in 2112! They can run the pro Gay/Green Governator with the Presidente of Mexico for co el Presidentes of the 57 states.

With the voters in Mexico, South America, Canada, Europe, Iran and "new voters" in the Former USA, the Governator can be co presidente with the Mexican Presidente for life.

They will win by 200 million votes, and that settles that. No one will challenge either one including a lot of Freepers as they will fear riots if the constitution is considered. Just move on to 2040.
