U.S. Supreme Court: No Clear Path Re Obama Eligibility….

Perhaps one can sense now why Barack Obama chose constitutional law as his personal field of specialization. It is becoming increasingly clear that Mr. Obama has known all along that he is constitutionally ineligible for President of The United States but has nevertheless mounted  an extremely successful campaign which threatens an end run around the Constitution and has brought him nearly to the U.S. Presidency. I will be writing here only about the issue of  Barack Obama’s dual  citizenship, acknowledged as fact on his website, because of his Kenyan Father’s status as a British subject. There are other important issues that need airing concerning the validity of the birth certificate posted on his web site and the possible forgery involving Mr. Obama’s Selective Service Registration.

Let me be clear from  the outset that the constitutional issues clouding Barack Obama’s eligibility also pertain to John McCain (born in Panama), Governor Bill Richardson (a dual Mexico U.S. citizen), former Governor George Romney (Mitt Romney’s father, born in Mexico) and one Roger Calero, who was on the ballot this year as a candidate of the Socialist Workers Party. Calero is clearly not a U.S. citizen as he is a Nicaraguan here on a Green Card.

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

Attorney Donofrio’s case seems to be the most promising among the dozen or so that have been filed in various states as well as at SCOTUS. (A Connecticut case has found its way to SCOTUS: No. 08A469 Title: Cort Wrotnowski, Applicant v. Susan Bysiewicz, Connecticut Secretary of State)

A most interesting discussion of the legal ramifications surrounding the “natural born citizen” issue appeared today at TD Blog. (Also see The Federalist Blog)  Contributor Judah Benjamin at TD Blog states at the outset that:

The next time you are feeling particularly sure “the fix is in” and that my abiding notion that the main problem with this Election isn’t a gigantic conspiracy but a mass of small conspiracies and cabals and a vast mass of negligence, incompetence, ignorance and just plain a-holeism consider the candidacy of Roger Calero. You might also want to think about Governor Bill Richardson’s candidacy, Richardson is a Mexican-American bipatride and a natural-born Mexican citizen, or national, under the Mexican Constitution. It isn’t just BHO II, not even close.

Judah Benjamin is not at all confidant that SCOTUS will hear Donofrio’s case :

….granting that Roberts, Alito, Scalia, Thomas and Kennedy are all either Federalists, or inclined towards the Federalist position, it is my belief that Donofrio’s case will probably not be heard because the whole issue is, as one of my legal friends in England called it “a poisoned chalice”. The Justices can follow the Law and risk calumny and civil disorder, or ignore the plain Common Law reading of the Constitution and risk usurpation and civil disorder.

That’s it folks; “calumny and civil disorder” or “usurpation and civil disorder”! Whatever it is it won’t be pretty but The Constitution must be defended and amended if warranted.

    Real Americans settle our differences far different from other nations. We are Unlike Taiwanese politicians who fight during a Taiwanese Legislature session with other politicians pushing … with some even throwing shoes across the room at the house’s speaker. Recently, Romanian candidates throw water on each other during a TV Debate. We can never imagine Obama doing that to Hillary.
    Obama’s group considers statements like “calumny and civil disorder” or “usurpation and civil disorder” as fear mongering. Their cowardness should force Obama to pull out immediately as fast as he would pull out of Iraq.
    The pressure of the silent “growing” hoodwinked majority to make a stand: “Whatever The Constitution must be defended”. Amended to effect retroactively is unAmericann.

  2. Ted Says:

    On Dec 5 the Supreme Court will either all0w or disallow the usurpation of both the Constitution and the Government of the United States — easily the most pivotal decision since our nation’s founding — and the silence of the news media is deafening (if not downright scary).

    An Open Letter To The Supreme Court

    The letter below was written to the Supreme Court. I believe it clearly defines what needs to be done to certify that Barack Hussein Obama is or is not qualified to be President of the United States.

    Please pass this on to many others, blogs, media, etc., and ask them to pass it on to many others too!

    November 25, 2008

    To the Most Honorable
    Chief Justice John G. Roberts
    Supreme Court of the United States
    One First Street, N.E.
    Washington, D.C. 20543

    Dear Chief Justice Roberts:

    Although this letter is addressed to you, your Honor, it is in reality an open letter to all of the Honorable Justices of the Supreme Court of the United States. And, my hope Sir is that you will make its content available to your esteemed colleagues on the Bench.

    Ever since the founding of our great nation, from the signing of the Declaration of Independence, through tenuous and uncertain times at Valley Forge, Washington’s crossing of the Delaware, and thereafter to the final battle of Yorktown, our nation’s future and Liberty hung tenuously by a slender thread. Since those perilous times, we have faced together many other challenges to the existence of our freedom. We endured the war of 1812, the Civil War, two world wars, and most recently the attack on the two World Trade Centers in New York City.

    That slender thread was and has always been, the courage and wisdom of the men in the breach of history, whose moral and mental compass turned their wills and their souls unerringly to the cause of liberty, and to the preservation of our nation and its Constitution.

    Comes now into the breach in the year 2008, the Supreme Court of the United States. Our founding fathers knew that our nation could be lost by direct assault, or by subterfuge. And it was the latter case to which they addressed the Article 1, Section 2 of the Constitution to direct all citizens to the diligence of electing only a “natural born” citizen of this country to be President.

    This matter was of such import that they being men themselves born in another nation, excluded only themselves and men alive at the signing of the Constitution, leaving forever thereafter, that only men born of this nation according to the law, and men who preserved their citizenship status only to this nation would ever become President.

    Whether the current and most recent candidate elected to that office would ever misdirect our nation or do harm is not the consideration. Whether he indeed meets the qualification of “natural born” citizenship, and has maintained only that citizenship in the United States, is the crucial issue that must be resolved.

    If he could have readily clarified this matter and ended this contention, it would seem to honorable and respectful citizens that he should have already done so, as the matter has been brewing for several months. But alas, critical and numerous documents that might shed light on his qualification in this regard have been purposefully and carefully “Sealed” to prevent revelation to public knowledge.

    The 300 million citizens of these United States deserve to know, beyond a reasonable doubt, that they have elected a man who indeed meets the Constitutional qualification requirements to become their President or otherwise as the case may be. This President needs that same stamp of approval of those same forefathers who signed the Constitution in order to serve honorably in this most high office.

    Two separate cases have now come before the Supreme Court, and another just was lodged in the Superior Court of California and has undoubtedly began its journey to your court. Unless this matter is resolved to the letter of the law and the Constitution, there can be no civil rest among the vastly growing number of those who have and those who will yet become aware that a growing shadow of doubt falls upon the qualification of our highest elected official.

    Two clear courses, and two consequences lie before us. And the Supreme Court holds the charge and the key to resolution of this most crucial issue. The issue is historical, and critical because a most dangerous precedent can be set, by allowing a President to serve who does not meet the Constitutional requirement set forth by our founders.

    Thereafter, any non-citizen could challenge that provision of “natural born” citizen in Article 1, Section 2, citing the already served term of office of one who did not quite meet that requirement.

    It is apparent that other entities whose purview should have checked the qualification of the candidates for Constitutional criteria, have failed in their duty. And the matter has been allowed to continue unresolved to the point that multiple lawsuits have been filed, and more are likely to arise. Those entities that failed to verify citizenship of candidates for President must be properly brought to task and the error in their duty pointed out.

    Either the matter is taken up and clearly resolved, and the Constitution is preserved, or We the People may look back in history upon a gaping hole burned in our Constitution in the year 2008 by the simple lack of due diligence.

    Such a travesty it would be to our collective and everlasting shame, and would place our nation in new degrees of jeopardy.

    So now, We the People turn to our highest court for Justice, and for resolution of truly a Constitutional crisis of historical significance. We trust your Honorable Court will not fail to recognize the importance of this matter and will stand with that long line of patriots and defenders of liberty to preserve and secure our nation’s future.

    To this end I remain …

    Very Respectfully and Sincerely Your Humble Servant,

    Name withheld

    Excellent letter deserving of widest possible distribution. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Ed Darrell Says:

    If you won’t give respect to the official declarations of the State of Hawaii, as required under the Constitution, then you’re neither respectful nor humble, Name Withheld.

    I suppose your signature says all that is required, though, doesn’t it.

    Here are six ways your complaints fail:

  6. Leo Donofrio Responds to Benjamin’s Obama Eligibility Thesis…. « Steady Habits Says:

    […] reported here earlier (11/28): This issue of how ineligible candidates were allowed on the ballot will be coming […]

  7. Diane Says:

    The letter to Chief Justice John Roberts says it all. It dismays me to think such a person as Barack Obama would seek to fool the American people. Wonder why he majored in Constitutional Law. What on earth does he think he is doing by continuing this entire “Trial Run”

    It is crystal clear that Barack Obama should not be elected and certainly not take the oath of office on Jan. 20th, 2009. Please end this, if Obama will not fess up then the Justices and the Electorals must. It won’t be pretty but the longer this is allowed to continue this falsehood the worse the reactions will be both here and abroad.

    Yes FreeWhiteMan,
    “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”
