Leo Donofrio Responds to Benjamin’s Obama Eligibility Thesis….

“The common law is gone. The federal courts never applied the common law and even in the state courts it’s codified now.” (Associate Justice Antonin Scalia, Nov 22, 2008)

LEO DONOFRIO COMMENTS ON JUDAH BENJAMIN ARTICLE CONCERNING NATURAL BORN CITIZEN AND THE COMMON LAW

Leo Donofrio has responded with his comments and corrections to the Judah Benjamin thesis on Barack Obama’s eligiblity which was published at TD Blog two days ago. Doonofrio writes:

While I enjoyed reading this article, and I agree with the conclusion – that Obama is not eligible – I disagree with the basis upon which that conclusion was made.

Specifically, I disagree that the common law is controlling on the issue of “natural born citizen”. It is “national law” which is controlling. I don’t know if Mr. Benjamin is a lawyer, but his reading, explanation and understanding of the natural born citizen issue is not exactly on point.

I do agree with Benjamin’s conclusion, that Obama is not a natural born citizen, but for the wrong reasons…..

Donofrio’s conclusion:

….All in all, Mr. Benjamin has made a valiant attempt to provide a clear analysis of the natural born citizen topic. Please do not assume I am bashing him. I respect his passion and research, but it’s not entirely accurate. And considering what Scalia just said to the Federalist Society about the common law being gone (only three days after my case was scheduled for conference), it’s important to keep things in their proper historical perspective.

We reported here earlier (11/28):

This issue of how ineligible candidates were allowed on the ballot will be coming to a head on Dec 5 when the U.S. Supreme Court (SCOTUS) has scheduled a conference on the merits of Leo Donofrio v. Nina Mitchell Wells, Secretary of State of the State of New Jersey – no. 08A047

Regarding local Connecticut case (Wrotnowski v CT Sec of State) which has also garnered national attention Donofrio notes:

Today we are watching for the SCOTUS AUTOMATED Docket to be updated with two important developments, one in Cort’s case and one in mine.

We hope the docket will reflect that Cort Wrotnowski has renewed his application to the Honorable Associate Justice Antonin Scalia as of this morning. Cort’s application for an emergency stay and/or injunction was denied by the Honorable Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on November 26, 2008. Cort sent it by Express mail on Saturday Nov. 29, 2008.

    “Dirty Pool” at the Supreme Court apparently on behalf of Obama currently usurping YOUR Constitution: Leo Donofrio’s companion case, brought by Cort Wrotnowski, with fuller/better briefing showing Obama is not an Article II “natural born citizen” reportedly has been sidetracked to the anthrax lab to deprive the full Court from seeing those filings in connection with Donofrio’s case this Friday, Dec 5, 2008. DO SOMETHING AMERICA!!!

    Although Hawiian Officials have “vouched” for Barack Obama’s Birth Certificate as being True, Genuine, Authentic & Valid;

    THAT does NOT In & Of Itself MAKE The “Birth Certificate” that Mr. Obama has Stashed, Holed-up and/or Locked Away in a “state vault” any MORE True, Genuine, Authentic & Valid: EXCEPT or UNLESS It Be RELEASED FOR PUBLIC & PROFESSIONAL AUTHENTICATION & VIEWING BEFORE MR. OBAMA IS “ELECTED” PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA BY “THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE” THIS 15th OF DECEMBER, 2008 !–

    AND THUS MR. OBAMA CAN OFFICIALLY BE SWORN IN AS PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA ON JANUARY 20, 2009 !

    WHY HAS MR. OBAMA AGGRIVATED FURTHER DOUBT ON THIS MOST GRAVE MATTER OF U.S. CONSTITUTIONAL LAW; AND PRE-REQUISITE FOR FULFILLING THE FEDERAL & LAWFUL REQUIREMENTS: FOR LEGALLY BEING ELECTED TO & LEGALLY EXECUTING THE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA ?

    WHY HAS HE SPENT OVER $ 800,000.00 IN LEGAL FEES & FUNDS TO DENY HIS “LOCKED IN A STATE VAULT” BIRTH CERTIFICATE FROM PUBLIC SCRUTINY & AUTHENTICATION ?

    THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA DEMAND A CLEAR, HONEST, MORAL, ETHICAL & FORTHWITH ANSWER –

    ALONG WITH THE PUBLIC DISCLOSURE OF THE “LOCKED IN A STATE VAULT” BIRTH CERTIFICATE OF BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA BEFORE DECEMBER 15, 2008:

    AND MOST DEFINITELY BEFORE JANUARY 20, 2009 !

    ANYTHING SHORT OF THE ABOVE DEMAND IS TO COMMIT TREASON AGAINST THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA; THE SEVERAL (50) STATES OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA; AND THE PEOPLES OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA: ALONG WITH ITS TERRITORIES, POSSESSIONS AND ASSOCIATED STATES (I.E. PUERTO RICO) & ETC.!!!

    TRUTHFULLY, HONESTLY & RESPECTFULLY YOURS,

    Tony Lopez-Cisneros
    2002/2004 Candidate For Congress,
    United States House of Representatives,
    4th Congressional District,
    State of Illinois.
