Obama Citizenship: Supreme Court Updates

by LukeAmerica2020
Of the more than one dozen court cases challenging Barack Obama’s citizenship and eligibility to become President, three cases are at the forefront of the grassroots movement by concerned Americans. This is not a partisan or a racial issue; it is about the constitutional qualifications to be eligible for the Presidency. Moreover, three aspects of this ongoing ordeal are most astonishing.

First is that most of the lower court cases have been dismissed due to the plaintiff’s lack of standing, ie, ordinary citizens have no right to question a Presidential candidate’s eligibility. Second is that Obama and the DNC have spent almost one million dollars in legal fees to prevent the candidate from having to reveal his original birth certificate. Third is the fact that Obama likewise refuses to release numerous relevant documents and records that should be innocuous (Occidental College records, Columbia College records, Columbia Thesis paper, Harvard College records, Law Practice client list, Law Practice billing records, etc.)

 
Leo C. Donofrio case update …
Today (2008-12-08), the Supreme Court turned down an emergency appeal from the New Jersey man who says President-elect Barack Obama is ineligible to be president because he was a British subject at birth. The court did not comment on its order rejecting the call by Leo Donofrio of East Brunswick, NJ, to intervene in the presidential election (Leo Donofrio vs Nina Wells).

Donofrio reports that since Obama had dual nationality at birth — his mother was American and his Kenyan father at the time was a British subject — he cannot possibly be a “natural born citizen,” one of the requirements the Constitution lists for eligibility to be president.

Donofrio also contends that two other candidates, Republican John McCain and Socialist Workers candidate Roger Calero, also are not natural-born citizens and thus ineligible to be president.

Cort Wrotnowski case update …
The Cort Wrotnowski vs Susan Bysiewicz (Connecticut Secretary of State) lawsuit that is before the US Supreme Court, has been Distributed for Conference on December 12, 2008. The application was referred to the court by Justice Antonin Scalia. This case also contends that Obama is not a natural born citizen because he was a British citizen at birth.

Tomorrow (2008-12-09), Wrotnowski will submit a supplemental brief concerning the newly discovered ineligibility of twenty-first President Chester Arthur due to his having been born as a British subject.

SCOTUS docket: Application 08A469

Philip J. Berg case update …
Philip Berg, the first attorney who filed suit against Barack Obama challenging Senator Obama’s lack of “qualifications” to serve as President of the United States, today (2008-12-08) filed with the US Supreme Court an Application for an Injunction to Stay the Electoral Votes on December 15, 2008 and prohibit Vice-President Dick Cheney, the House of Representatives, and the Senate from counting any votes for Obama until Obama Proves he is “Qualified” to be President.

Berg argues that Obama was born in Kenya, not Hawaii as Obama says and Hawaii officials have confirmed. He also says Obama may be a citizen of Indonesia, where he lived as a boy.

    The Donofrio suit was hyped from the beginning as something that could potentially change the election, but it never had the capability of doing that, however it was decided. One is thankful that the Supreme Court thinks like lawyers instead of conspiracy theorists or fringe anti-immigrant zealots, and put Donofrio’s lawsuit to rest (although Obama Citizenship Denial conspiracy theorists will be here long after Obama’s term in office is over).

    Wow…just…wow. You are an idiot.

    Obama inaugurated 1/20/09? No way. No how. Read this: http://www.newswithviews.com/Vieira/edwin186.htm

  4. Kevin says:

    I don’t know how closely you’re following Obama Citizenship Denial, but in the latest I’ve seen that points out exactly how crazy this thing has gotten, Donofrio has posted on his Natural Born Citizen site evidence that President Chester A. Arthur had a British Citizen father, and therefore was not a legitimate president of the US.

    Donofrio maligns Arthur for making contradictory statements about exactly where he lived and when, but Arthur did state publicly that his father immigrated from Ireland and never claimed he became a citizen before Arthur was born. The Donofrio article is here:
    http://naturalborncitizen.wordpress.com/2008/12/06/urgent-historical-breakthrough-proof-chester-arthur-concealed-he-was-a-british-subject-at-birth/

    There was also a “show us the birth certificate” episode with Arthur with some claiming (like some do for Obama) that he was born in Canada.

    There is a wonderful article on the conspiracy theory aspects of Obama Citizenship Denial here: http://www.salon.com/news/feature/2008/12/05/birth_certificate/

    Ted said: “Obama inaugurated 1/20/09? No way. No how. Read this: http://www.newswithviews.com/Vieira/edwin186.htm

    “Dr. Edwin Vieira, Jr., Ph.D., J.D.” has a fundamental flaw in his criticism of the Hawaii court ruling. The certification Obama already published is, by Hawaiian Law, prima facie evidence that he was born in Hawaii. What “irreparable harm” could come from Obama being inaugurated from the point of view of a Hawaiian court?

    One also wonders why Dr. Vieira’s PhD dissertation is not indexed by:

    There was no definition given for a natural born citizen in the US Constitution. So in 1795, that’s right 1795 our forefathers decided they would clear this up and passed the Naturalization Act of 1975. Many of the forefathers that were at the Constitution Convention were involved in the crafting and the passing of this legislation of Title 8 of the U.S. Code filling in the gaps of US Citizenship. Its sad that a politically motivated case like this can actually be brought to our court system but it proves the court is accessible to everybody, even wackos. So for future reference, this is who qualities as a citizen:

    Who is a natural-born citizen? Who, in other words, is a citizen at birth, such that that person can be a President someday?

    The 14th Amendment defines citizenship this way: “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.” But even this does not get specific enough. As usual, the Constitution provides the framework for the law, but it is the law that fills in the gaps.

    Currently, Title 8 of the U.S. Code fills in those gaps. Section 1401 defines the following as people who are “citizens of the United States at birth:”

    * Anyone born inside the United States
    * Any Indian or Eskimo born in the United States, provided being a citizen of the U.S. does not impair the person’s status as a citizen of the tribe
    * Any one born outside the United States, both of whose parents are citizens of the U.S., as long as one parent has lived in the U.S.
    * Any one born outside the United States, if one parent is a citizen and lived in the U.S. for at least one year and the other parent is a U.S. national
    * Any one born in a U.S. possession, if one parent is a citizen and lived in the U.S. for at least one year
    * Any one found in the U.S. under the age of five, whose parentage cannot be determined, as long as proof of non-citizenship is not provided by age 21
    * Any one born outside the United States, if one parent is an alien and as long as the other parent is a citizen of the U.S. who lived in the U.S. for at least five years (with military and diplomatic service included in this time)
    * A final, historical condition: a person born before 5/24/1934 of an alien father and a U.S. citizen mother who has lived in the U.S.

    Anyone falling into these categories is considered natural-born, and is eligible to run for President or Vice President. These provisions allow the children of military families to be considered natural-born, for example.

  7. Truth Exists says:

    Not so (prima facie evidence). At the time of O’s birth, parents could (by declaration) get a Hawaiian certification of birth for a baby born outside of the country. Look up Hawaiian law; I did and so can you. That’s what the hub-bub is about.
    Presumably the long version birth certificate would have information that would say whether that is what was done. The long version is what Obama won’t let anyone see.

    When I was in law school (about a thousand years ago), a famous prosecuting attorney told us that when it came to evidence, think horse, not zebra.
    Obama’s spending a ton of money to hide his orginal birth certificate is some kind of horse.

  8. richCares says:

    “Obama’s spending a ton of money to hide his orginal birth certificate is some kind of horse.”
    what wingnut told you this, how brilliant you miust be, where did get this information, pull it out of your Rear End?

    listed are some Supreme Court Cases
    go to each one and see who is listed for respondents lawyer then get back to us Idiot!
    Go to Supreme Court site:
    http://origin.www.supremecourtus.gov
    1 click on “Docket” at prompt type “Donofrio”
    Respondant Lawyer:
    None listed

    2 click on “Docket” at prompt type “Berg”
    Respondant Lawyer:
    G. Garre, Solicitor General, United States Department of Justice

    3 click on “Docket” at prompt type “Wrotnowski”
    Respondant Lawyer:
    Richard Blumenthal, Attorney General, Office of the Attorney General

    Now you will know who are the lawyers,you will find that State cases are similar, why do you keep insisting on proving you are an idiot led by the nose by some idiotic wingnut site. you people are called “Birthers”, a term of derision.

  9. DCH says:

    The Wrotnowski case was denied on Friday. It was not on the list posted on the SCOTUS website. This is over.
    As for Hawaii, you can register a foreigh birth, but that is for adoption. The state issues a Certificate of Foreign Birth in such cases and lists the place of birth (not in Hawaii).

  10. richCares says:

    Lightfoot case is Toast
    Donofrio case is Toast
    Wortnowski case is Toast
    do you wingnuts want butter or jam with your Toast

    the only value these cases had were as fund raising ploys, a way to sucker money away from wingnuts, you should ask for a refund!

  11. Adam says:

    Richcares. you are an eighteen Karet flaming idiot. You might also be interested in knowing that us wingnuts are what holds the wheels on the wagon. Apparently the constitution means absolutely squat to you in preference to your dreamstate money handouts that you have been promised for you vote. This usurper issue will not go away no matter how far you stick your head in the barachomud. You talk about fund raising ploys, giggle giggle. Where was your ihre when your savior bilked the world for 600 million for his bogus campaign? I assure you we will bring this fraud down for a lot less,

  12. stophate says:

    Sorry Adam, Mr. Obama was vetted in all 50 states and was elected by the PEOPLE ( not by corporations ) in an overwhelming majority. The US Supreme Court has thrown this garbage out on its ear. Its called the rule of law. And the law and the US Constitution are not on your side. Luckily there are protections in place to protect the American people from the right wing wackos like yourself. Maybe you’ll have a better candidate next time.

  13. Linderella says:

    What it boils down to is this, how could you trust someone who was elected to represent this great country that you know absolutely nothing about. I just would like to know a few basic things about someone I am being told to trust. I would more than likely share some of these basic questions with a neighbor or possibly someone who I am beginning any sort of relationship of trust.
    Where were you born, where did you go to kindergarten, where did you live, what did your parents do, where did you go to college? Is it necessary to seal your entire background from a good friend? Wouldn’t it make you a little nervous about your neighbor? I wouldn’t want a friend like that, much less the POTUS. I might have to give him the key to my house to watch the dog sometime when I’m out of town. I don’t understand why the Obama supporters aren’t even a little bit curious about this whole subject.
    A certificate of live birth is not the same thing as a birth certificate. Just try and get a passport with a certificate of live birth. I know, I tried and was very firmly denied one. I was born abroad to two U.S. citizens. I now have a birth certificate that shows that I am a naturalized U.S. citizen, born abroad. I did also have to go through the whole natualization process upon coming to the U.S. with my parents as a small child.
    I really don’t care to have him thown out of office. I just would like him to come clean with the truth. Let the people of this country weigh the evidence and decide for themselves. We should at least be able to ask some simple questions, questions most of us would be proud to share with each others, especially if you would be asking for our trust and respect. Just tell me who you really are Mr. Obama.

  14. Whamoo says:

    This whole thing about President Obama’s birth is so disgusting. Why? Could it be because he is a Black man? Well, history has proven that there were five other Black presidents prior to President Obama. All of this has been denied because all those five presidents were allegedly “White”. Not to mention that the very first President of the US before the post was called “Predident”, was also an Black man. There is no doubt that President Obama is a born American. All these White racists pigs need to go and find something constructive to do. That stupid Army doctor should be discharged from the military and put in prison for refusing to take up deployment. The US Government should be aware of deploying folks like him, because it might not be the best for the country – he might just sell us for naught.

  15. Ton Press says:

    Hi,

    What a great list. I am always on the look for top lists, and your list is great starting point. Lists are very useful.
