Obama’s Citizenship Lawsuits

by LukeAmerica2020
As reported by WorldNetDaily, more than a half-dozen legal challenges have been filed in federal and state courts demanding President-elect Barack Obama’s decertification from ballots or seeking to halt elector meetings, claiming he has failed to prove his U.S. citizenship status. Most have been dismissed due to the plaintiff’s lack of standing. Some of these have pending stays and writs hoping to beat the December 15 deadline when the electors of the Electoral College meet to select the President and Vice-President.

Presidential candidate Alan Keyes, vice-presidential candidate Wiley S. Drake, and the Chairman of the American Independent Party, Markham Robinson, have filed suit in California Superior Court in Sacramento seeking to bar Secretary of State Debra Bowen from certifying to Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger the names of Electors, and from transmitting to each presidential Elector a Certificate of Election, until documentary proof is produced and verified showing that Senator Obama is a “natural born” citizen of the United States, and does not hold citizenship of Indonesia, Kenya or Great Britain.

Connecticut resident Cort Wrotnowski challenged the authenticity of Obama’s birth certificate on October 31, and asked the court to order Secretary of State Susan Bysiewicz to verify Obama’s citizenship before allowing the candidate to appear on the state ballot. State Supreme Court Chief Justice Chase T. Rogers threw out the case for lack of jurisdiction within a half hour of reviewing it.

Reverend Tom Terry of Atlanta, GA, appealed to the Georgia Supreme Court the day before the election to determine authenticity of Obama’s original birth certificate and his qualifications to be president.

“I bear no personal ill will against Barack Obama,” Terry, an independent, said in a statement. “In fact, his election solely on the basis as the first African-American president-elect is a very positive thing for our nation. However, as an American, I have very grave concerns about Mr. Obama’s possible divided loyalties since he has strenuously and vigorously fought every request and every legal effort to force him to release his original birth certificate for public review and scrutiny. I think that is significant.”

On October 24, Georgia Superior Court Judge Jerry W. Baxter denied Terry’s request for an injunction against Secretary of State Karen Handel. “I don’t think you have standing to bring this suit,” he said. “I think that the attorney general has argued the law. I think he is correct. I think you are not a lawyer.” Terry is appealing his suit even though Obama didn’t win Georgia because he said he wants to set an example for other states. He is asking the court to direct Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel to decertify all votes for Obama.

On October 17, Andy Martin filed a writ of mandamus in Hawaii’s Supreme Court to compel Gov. Linda Lingle to release a certified copy of Obama’s vital statistics record. His request to expedite the circuit court was denied on October 22.

Martin now has a pending case seeking access to Obama’s original 1961 typewritten birth certificate. The circuit court hearing is set to begin November 18.

New Jersey
Retired attorney and New Jersey resident Leo C. Donofrio asked the U.S. Supreme Court for an emergency stay on November 3 prohibiting three candidates from appearing on New Jersey’s ballots: Republican candidate John McCain, Democratic candidate Barack Obama and Socialist Worker’s Party candidate Roger Calero.

Donofrio claimed the candidates are not “natural born citizens” as enumerated in Article 2, Section 1, of the Constitution of the United States, which states, “No person except a natural born citizen of the United States, at the time of adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President.” He wrote, Obama is not eligible for the presidency “even if it were proved he was born in Hawaii, since … Senator Obama’s father was born in Kenya and therefore, having been born with split and competing loyalties, candidate Obama is not a ‘natural born citizen’ …”

David M. Neal of Turtlecreek Township, Ohio, filed suit in Warren Common Pleas Court in October to force Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner to request documents from the Federal Elections Commission, the Democratic National Committee, the Ohio Democratic Party and Obama to show the presidential candidate was born in Hawaii, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported.

Warren County Magistrate Andrew Hasselbach denied Neal’s request, saying, “The onus is upon one who challenges such public officer to demonstrate an abuse of discretion by admissible evidence – not hearsay, conclusory allegations or pure speculation.”

Prominent Pennsylvania Democrat and attorney Philip J. Berg filed suit in U.S. District Court three months ago claiming Obama is not a natural-born U.S. citizen. Berg claimed that by failing to respond Obama has legally “admitted” to the lawsuit’s accusations, including the charge that the Democratic candidate was born in Mombosa, Kenya.

U.S. District Judge R. Barclay Surrick dismissed Berg’s argument on October 24, ruling that he lacked standing to bring the case. He said Berg’s allegations were “too vague and too attenuated.”

“This is a question of who has standing to uphold our Constitution,” Berg told Jeff Schreiber of America’s Right blog. “If I don’t have standing, if you don’t have standing, if your neighbor doesn’t have standing to question the eligibility of an individual to be president of the United States – the commander in chief, the most powerful person in the world – then who does?”

    LukeAmerica2020: Looming Constitutional Crisis

Steven Marquis of Fall City, WA, filed suit October 9 in Washington State Superior Court, calling for Secretary of State Sam Reed to determine whether Obama is a citizen before Election Day. Marquis released a statement saying the state has the authority to “prevent the wholesale disenfranchisement of voters” who might have otherwise had the opportunity to choose a qualified candidate should records show Obama is not a natural-born U.S. citizen.

Marquis said Obama’s Hawaii birth certificate isn’t evidence that the president-elect is a natural-born citizen because it doesn’t reveal the hospital where Obama was born, a doctor’s name or the baby’s footprint, the Associated Press reported. Superior Court Judge John Erlick dismissed the lawsuit, claiming the Secretary of State does not have authority to inquire about Obama’s birth certificate. He also said Marquis failed to name Obama as a party to the lawsuit.

    Are you serious? This ridiculous sanction of people out there has got to be a joke. Are there really people out there (of sound mind) who believe that Obama was born in Kenya? Or that his birth certificate in Hawaii was a fake? Or that Obama is indeed actually a Muslim? Or that there is some government conspiracy plot to bring a Muslim terrorist into office to help Bush “save face”? Or that He isn’t a “natural citizen” because his father was born in Kenya?? If there truly are some people out there who SERIOUSLY believe this, let me ask you who you had in mind for the Presidency… MCCAIN?? Because believe it or not, John McCain (who I thought was a decent guy, just not who I would vote into office) was born in Panama (look it up if you don’t believe me). So does this mean that McCain should have been stripped of the Presidency if he got elected? Of course not. You’d find some reason to hem-haw. And if some MORON like Donofrio brought a case against McCain for the same reason, I’d be writing this letter in support of McCain as well. GIVE ME A BREAK!! Obama won the election by 53% of the vote. That is a majority of the people in this country. GET OVER IT already people! Sheesh! We had 8 years of dysfunctional leadership. Leo C. Donofrio and all the other whiners who are desperately looking to cling to SOMETHING to try and take away the CLEAR choice of the people should be ashamed. He reminds me of some school kid on the playground who wants to cry foul because he lost a schoolyard game of kickball. Anyone who backs this guy really needs to take a serious look at what is happening here and be afraid that something like this could happen to ANY President elect. Not just Obama. Move on folks. These crackpots will try to fill your heads with anything. And unless you educate yourself on truth (not my words or anyone elses), you’ll be doomed to follow the flock of the ridiculous. I like McCain… I certainly am proud of what he did for his country. The suffering, the heroism will all be for naught if you back someone who blatently cares nothing for the voice of the majority of the American people. Sad… Sad… Sad. Any respect that Leo C. Donofrio could have, or MAY have earned throughout his career, just went out the window.

    the bottom line is…the secrecy surrounding obamas birthplace raises legitimate concerns. the fact that obama would spend over 600,000 dollars and use 3 law firms to defend these charges–when a 10.00 payment to get a copy of his TYPEWRITTEN VAULT COPY could and hopefully would silence all lawsuits begs the question
    “why wont he let anyone see it’
    the document he posted on his own website is not a birth certificate-it has no mention of hospital, attending dr, baby weight, etc
    all the things you and every reader here has seen on their own birth certificate,—the document obama posted is a lazer printed forgery…which is neither typewritten (as it should be in 1961 year of his birth) nor does it have the required info.
    all hospitals in hawaii have no records of his mom ever giving birth there-and these are open records .
    all other Obama records from selective service, to school/admissions to college transcripts that could and would show if zobama was admitted as a foreign student have been locked down and no one can see them (unlike all other past presidents who show all their history of documents)
    also, it is a known fact that Obama traveled to Pakistan in 1980-81 when travel there by anyone with an American passport was forbidden. how could Obama get into Pakistan with an american Passport….(it is because he had an Indonesian one…he has indonesian citizenship by fact of legal adoption by his stepdad)
    all in all, there are rules of elgibility to run for pres and that is you must be a “natural born citizen” obama has never shown to anyone that he is….not when he first ran for illinois senate….and not when he ran for US senate…and the DNC did not ever see any proof when he threw his hat into the ring for pres. pelosi did not ever confrim that he was eligible….learn your facts…you might find it all very suspicious. not a conspiracy theory here..just the fact that OBAMA will not show anything about his past. lived 48 years and not a person has ever come forth that knows him from college or law school…and no paper trail….
