  • Tenneesse Democrats admit Obama's lack of eligibility

    Another ballot challenge has been dismissed, this one on the basis of legal standing. Most ballot laws allow any voter or citizen to challenge an ineligible candidate, but perhaps not Tennessee. But that's not the most interesting part of this legal decision. Instead, the Tennessee Democrat Party makes a baffling argument which includes a pretty obvious admission that they can't prove Obama is eligible for office: "Defendants assert that the Tennessee Democratic Party has the right to nominate whoever it chooses to run as a candidate, including someone who is not qualified for the office." What other point is there...

    The Mississippi Democrat party just filed a motion to dismiss a ballot challenge in from Orly Taitz on behalf of a couple of Mississippi voters. The motion, which is more than 200 pages contains a citation and copies from every known so-called "birther" case that has been filed. Also, in this challenge, they they seem to think this satisfies the Federal Rules of Evidence in regard to self-authenticating documents. The actual idea behind that rule is to submit certified copies of records to the court so that the documents can be inspected by all parties to ensure they contain the...

    <p>Standing alongside President Santos of Colombia and singer Shakira in the Plaza de San Pedro, Obama reflected on his own ancestry.</p> <p>"Early in my presidency, my family and I visited Ghana in West Africa and we visited the historic Cape Coast Castle and I'll never forget my two young daughters, the descendents of Africans and African-Americans, looking out through the door of no return where so many Africans began their forced journey to this hemisphere," he said.</p>
  • Wong Kim Ark dissent agreed with majority; NBC is separate from the 14th amendment

    Vanity ^ | 02-29-2012 | edge919
    Contrary to uninformed opinion, the ruling in U.S. v. Wong Kim Ark (WKA) did NOT make natural-born citizens of everyone who was born in the U.S. One of the best ways to understand this is by reading the dissent, which defined natural-born citizens (NBC) directly from Vattel's Law of Nations. Before the Revolution, the view of the publicists had been thus put by Vattel: The natives, or natural-born citizens, are those born in the country of parents who are citizens. As the society cannot exist and perpetuate itself otherwise than by the children of the citizens, those children naturally follow...
  • Eligibility verification bill in Kansas past committee; needs support

    The elections committee in the Kansas House just passed a an eligibility bill requiring state and federal candidates to show a certified copy of their birth certificate as proof of citizenship. This coincides with a similar effort in Kansas on voter identification. "A House committee approved a bill Wednesday requiring candidates for state and federal office to provide proof of citizenship, a reflection of the "birther" movement raising questions of President Barack Obama's status as a U.S. citizen." - - - "The objective of the bill, he said, should be to require proof of citizenship for state and federal candidates...
  • Triangulating Minor's definition of Natural-Born Citizen; why it's an exclusive definition

    equilateral triangle ^ | 02-07-2012 | edge919
    I've been giving this some thought, because it's clear to me, but others seem to have a hard time understanding why the natural-born citizen definition is an exclusive, self-limiting definition. The new Obot case du jour is Ankeny v. Daniels which claims that Minor's definition of NBC left it open as to WHO could be a natural-born citizen other than those born in the country to citizen parents. It's a false assumption because it ignores that the Minor court explored every known permutation and possible combination of parentage and birth location criteria for defining the different classes of citizenship. We'll...
  • Malihi overruled by Georgia Secretary of State [extrapolation from 2000 press release]

    Georgia Secretary of State ^ | 02-06-2012 | edge919
    I just discovered this news release and hadn't seen it reported elsewhere. Our honorable Judge Malihi evidently has a tradition of being overruled by the Secretary of State. Could history repeat itself ... or maybe like the Obots have claimed, this judge is incompetent??? June 7, 2000: Georgia Secretary of State Cathy Cox today ruled that House District 29 candidate Randy Sauder will remain on the ballot as a Democratic candidate in the 2000 General Primary and General Elections. In an order signed today Ms. Cox ruled against a challenge to Rep. Sauder’s candidacy brought by petitioner Marston H. Tuck....
  • Ankeny's Error: Virginia Minor could run for president; Wong Kim Ark could not

    Indiana Appeals Court ^ | 2/5/2012 | edge919
    In the ballot hearing in Georgia, Judge Malihi cited Ankeny v. Daniels from the Indiana Appeals Court to define natural-born citizen, using jus soli criteria to declare Barack "No Show" Obama to be eligible for Georgia's primary ballot, despite the lack of actual legal evidence to prove whether or not Barry was even born in the United States or not. That aside, the ruling is based on an errant conclusion. Keeping things simple, the best way to emphasize why Minor v. Happersett is the one & only legal precedent and Wong Kim Ark is not, is to use Ankeny v....

    This looks like Obama is trying to float a test excuse as to why he won't be showing up at the ballot-eligibility hearing in Georgia on Thursday. Carney: Obama sees ‘regrettable level of hyperpartisanship’ in Washington"Even though he promised to bridge partisanship before coming into office, President Obama “accepts that there is still a regrettable level of hyperpartisanship,” White House spokesman Jay Carney said on Monday. Carney said there were “instances” in which the tone on Pennsylvania Avenue “got in the way of moving forward.”

    Hawaii Revised Statutes ^ | 11/04/2011 | edge919
    This is the time to start a plan of action to challenge the inclusion of any Constitutionally deficient presidential candidates on your state's primary or general election ballots. It's important to research your state law and see what time frame is allowed for filing a challenge with the chief election officer. It's also important to have a clean, clearly stated and factually supported challenge. In Obama's case, he does NOT meet the Supreme Court's definition for natural-born citizen as used to satisfy the meaning of the term in Art II Sec I of the U.S. Constitution: all children born in...
  • Obama should have been deported with Barak Sr.

    It has been claimed by Obama apologists that in relatively recent cases, circuit courts have given their opinion on the term "natural-born citizen" as meaning nothing more than being born in the country. Supposably this would presume that Obama, if it can be legally proven that he was born in the United States, as he claims, is a natural-born citizen in spite of being born of a foreign national father and NOT being born to citizen parents, as the Supreme Court defined NBC in Minor v. Happersett, etc. One example of such a recent decision is Diaz-Salazar v. the INS...
