Hall of Shame

A letter received from Senator Jeff Sessions of Alabama
regarding Barack Obama’s eligibility issues:

“Thank you for your recent letter regarding President-elect Barack
Obama. I appreciate your comments and welcome the opportunity to
respond.

The Constitution of the United States requires that all candidates
for the office of President must be at least 35 years of age, natural
born citizens, and residents in the United States for the previous
14 years. As you know, stories have circulated that call into question
President-elect Obama’s citizenship. To this end, lawsuits have been
filed allegging that Obama is not a natural born citizen of the United
States, and therefore is constitutionally ineligible for the office
of President.

One of the most highly publicized suits was filed by Philip Berg on
August 21, 2008, in the U. S. District Court for the Eastern District
of Pennsylvania. This suit was dismissed on October 24, 2008, and Berg
subsequently filed an appeal. The decision to hear the case is still
pending before the United States Supreme Court. A related suit, filed
by Leo Donofrio, was recently submitted to the Supreme Court. On
December 8, 2008, the court declined to hear Donofrio’s suit.

Senate ethics rules preclude me from becoming personally involved in
pending litigation. I sincerely hope this matter can be fully and
promptly resolved by the courts. In the meantime, please do not
hesitate to contact me in the future should you have a question
regarding an issue over which I have jurisdiction.

Thank you again for writing. Your comments and suggestions are always
welcome.

Very truly yours,
Jeff Sessions
United States Senator”

Senator Jeff Sessions, first of all I suppose you should be
congratulated for not spewing a bunch of uninformed or biased
statements, as many of your colleagues have done.
However, you stated the following:

“please do not hesitate to contact me in the future should you have
a question regarding an issue over which I have jurisdiction.”

We are contacting you now. Congress meets on January 8, 2008 to count and
validate the Electoral College Votes. We are asking you carry out your oath
of office and request proof of eligibility from Obama, a candidate who is
not a natural born citizen and probably is an illegal alien. I am certain
this is within the realm of your “jurisdiction.”

Why Obama is not eligible

  1. Can we get some truth here?

    CW,

    I too, believe most of these letters look like form letters. Please continue to post them and I’m sure you will be keeping a list. Let’s all remember these Senators and Congressmen for the next election cycle.

    Let’s vote them … OUT !!

  2. “Senate ethics rules preclude me from becoming personally involved in pending litigation.”

    Does anybody know what this means?

    Thanks.

  3. stand up and fight

    Yes i do l. That statement means i don’t have the guts to object to this issue.Why didn’t he state exactly what senate ethics rule he was referring to?It must be the same type of rule a senate resolution bill falls under.

  4. To Catherine,
    This means that BHO will probably get away with it. Congress will probably confirm the Electoral Vote in January. The Democratic Party says that as non-government organization they do not have subpoena power, so they could not qualify the candidates. Most Electors also claim that it is not their job. Ordinary citizens have no “standing” when filing law suits according to current law. The Philadelphia court in the Berg case clearly stated that only Congress can enact such law to enable citizens to have standing. If such law existed most of the state courts would have probably ruled in favor of the plaintiffs. However, Congress does not want touch the issue.

    Those who have standing, like McCain, Hillary, GOP, Attorney General will not touch the issue with a ten foot pole either.

    Understandable for DNC, also for Hillary who will get a nice job. More difficult to understand the current administrations position, except that they do few things right. McCain is a hero but not a fighter, so one can understand his passivity.

    What puzzles me why the GOP does not file a law suit? Maybe because their leaders such as Bush gave the order to be passive? If you watched how the White House spokesman reacted when a reporter asked a related question, you sure have that impression.

    Can anyone explain the passivity of the GOP to me? After all this is pretty much the end of the GOP

    A reply from my congressman, John Tanner, 8th District of Tennessee

    Dear Mr. B:

    Thank you for contacting our office regarding the allegations that President-Elect Barack Obama was not born in the United States. I appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts with me on this issue.

    There are claims that President-Elect Obama was born in Africa and not in the United States which would make him ineligible to become president. The Obama campaign released a scanned copy of his birth certificate in June 2008, but many people believe it was a forgery. The non-partisan organization Political Fact Check (this group monitors the factual accuracy of political information) has examined Mr. Obama’s birth certificate and they report that it is valid and he is a U.S. citizen. I have included a link to a Newsweek article that was written on this subject and includes links to pictures of the birth certificate (http://www.newsweek.com/id/154599).

    Again, thank you for sharing your views with me and I hope you will feel free to contact our office with any issues of concern to you in the future.

    Sincerely,

    John Tanner, M. C.

  6. I received exactly word for word the same letter from Jeff Sessions in response to a letter I had written to him.

    This is how I responded to him. Bear in mind that this was written before I knew the good senator was sending out “form letters” in response to citizens’ concerns. To say I’m angry is an understatement.

    Honorable Senator Sessions:

    Thank you for your response dated December 16, 2008, to my concerns regarding Mr. Obama’s “natural born” status as a citizen of the USA. I appreciate your candor, which is more than I can say for your counterpart in the House of Representatives.

    Let me be clear when I say that I am very thankful for your service to the great state of Alabama, and our nation. While I’m certain that I’ve not always agreed with you, I can’t think of a single occasion when I didn’t.

    With all due respect, Phillip Berg’s case has hardly been publicized, so stating that it is one of “the most highly publicized suits” isn’t saying much. The neglect and blatant bias of the media in this election cycle has been sickening.

    Sir, I have not, nor would I ask you to become “personally involved in pending litigation.” What I have asked of you, Senator Shelby, and Congressman Rogers is to uphold your oaths of office.

    Evidently all one has to do to be eligible to run for President of the United States is say they are a “natural born” citizen.

    One cannot get a passport, nor register one’s child for school without providing an actual birth certificate. I, and at least 198,592 other citizens think it is prudent to ask that all candidates for federal office (that constitutionally require “natural born” status) provide their birth certificates.

    Obviously, Mr. Obama has never been required to provide this documentation. I say that not because I know he is not “natural born,” but because if he had released it to anyone, ever, it would already have been leaked to the press, and this issue would be resolved one way or the other.

    For our elected officials in the Senate and the House of Representatives to continue to bury their heads in the sand, and wait for the Supreme Court to hand down a decision is unacceptable to this citizen. This is not an issue for the Court, and it never should have been made into one.

    It is within the scope of duties of the Senate and House of Representatives to ensure that the constitution is upheld on this issue. All that is required is an actual birth certificate which the state of Hawaii has stated is on file there. The state did not say, however, that the document was a Hawaiian birth certificate. At the time of Mr. Obama’s birth Hawaii allowed registration of foreign births, and it has been publicized on the internet that more than one member of Mr. Obama’s Kenyan family, including his own grandmother have stated that he was born in Mombassa, Kenya. I’m sure that you can see how this has a great number of Americans questioning the motives behind Mr. Obama’s refusal to release the necessary documentation regarding his birth. These are things that our ‘elected representatives’ need to address at the federal level. It would seem to this citizen that a good way to approach this would be for someone in the House, or the Senate to introduce a resolution requiring all Presidential and Vice presidential candidates to produce valid U.S. birth certificates starting with the 2008 elections. It may get more support than anyone realizes. Even if it is not passed at least the people who need to be talking about this issue will be doing so. It seems to me that almost everyone is putting Mr. Obama above the law, the citizenry, and the constitution.

    I fear for my country, sir. We cannot allow an ineligible candidate to be sworn in as President.

    If Mr. Obama has no reason to fear the consequences of the release of this document it seems logical that he would have allowed it. The fact that he hasn’t, and has defrauded the citizens of this country with a fake document on the internet speaks volumes about the character (or lack thereof) of our President-Elect.

    Please keep your oath to uphold our constitution. Sir, my father died in service to this nation on July 20, 1967. He kept his oath to “defend” our constitution. Will you?

    I expect nothing from Mr. Sessions on this issue now that I see he doesn’t even have the courtesy to respond individually to letters from his constituents.

    If I can find the brief letter I received from Congressman Rogers I will forward it to your site. It is beyond shameful, & needs to be added to the Hall of Shame. Thanks for the great posts.

  7. On the contrary, I have been told by an investigator connected with Plains Radio (TX)that 3 U.S. Senators are leaning towards questioning Obama’s eligibility at the Jan. 8th Cert. Mtg of Congress–Sen. Sessions, Sen. Inhofe and Sen. Thune. Only 1 Senator is needed along with 1 Congressman to start the Senate investigation which could delay the Inauguration. Moreover, at least 7 Congressmen have stated to this investigator thru their aides that they will likely question Obama’s eligibility:

    Rep. John Linder (GA)
    Rep. Rob Wittman (VA)
    Rep. Bob Latta (OH)
    Rep. Jim Jordan (OH)
    Rep. Don Manzullo (IL)
    Rep. Michelle Bachman (MN)
    Rep. Ron Paul (TX)

    Rep. Paul just “came aboard yesterday”, we are told, after previously stating in a phone conversation with someone who went to school with him who is connected with Plains Radio (TX) that “They’ll laugh me out of Congress!”.

    The BIG news, however, isn’t just these elected officials. Ed Hale of Plains Radio announced on Friday night that on Tuesday or Wednesday, he will produce a never before seen document sent by one of his PIs–a “Port of Entry Birth Certificate for Obama” that shows that Obama was born in Kenya which will prove he is not a natural born citizen and is ineligible for POTUS. When these elected representatives are shown this document, it will be convincing. All of them as well as others have stated that they “need proof”, they “need documents” showing this to be the case. Now they’ll have it.

    There’s a lot going on behind the scenes that the MSM refuses to cover. That action is about to hit the newstands and MSM talk shows.

  8. CitizenWells,

    do you have copies of the original letters. I want to collect these letters to send to the Supreme Court.

    I would like to have the letter head on the letters and/or email responses. we can block out the sender’s names.

    my email is pb_realestate@yahoo.com

    I am tired of so much corruption in Alabama. I asked for help with my dying Mother, as my husband needed a green card to help her. I ask Jeff Sessions office to please expodite this. My husbamd was French. Nothing was done. Two years later, after he got his green card we received a letter that it was still being worked on – come on- what a lie! Also, how can sessions endorse Griffith, who everyone in Huntsville know he is a useless, who takes advantage of the poor, or should I say would not take those who had no insurance. My Mother , who was a nurse, said everyone in medicine in Huntsville knew about this useless. So many doctors would still take care of the poor though they had no insurance.It is a disgrace that you endorse him without finding out the facts!! I am sick of this pathetic state and I grew up here. There is no integrety You are pathetic – NO INTEGRITY. How could you endorse this BUM!!! Everyone here knew he was a bum – why didn’t you?

  10. Blagojevich convicted, removed.

  11. Dear fellow Americans,
    I received that same letter from Senator Sessions and was astounded because he should know that the US Constitution precludes any and all Senate Ethics rules. The fact that the media has been blacked out on this issue by some unforeseen source (I’m sure with a lot of cash) and the fact that even members of The Democratic Party are screaming for a review and full investigation of President-In-Hoax Obama, leads me to believe that “our” government has people and directives in place to keep Obama’s true citizenship from being discovered.
    Today, I will contact Sen. Sessions office again to ask him to STOP THE ACORN $5.2 BILLION GRANT. This gift in the stimulus package is bigger than the education budget in Sen. Sessions state of Alabama, this is a shame !
    And ACORN is under voter fraud investigation and is an organization that Pres. Obama has very close ties, talk about CONFLICT OF INTEREST !
    ACORN is corrupt. Blagojevich is corrupt. Senate rules are corrupt and I believe facts surrounding Pres. Obama’s citizenship are being covered up which makes it a corrupt situation.
    Call your Senator or Representative TODAY and complain about all the spending, especially the ACORN donation to breed more illegitimate votes. Get your Senator to filibuster this spending bill that will throw our nation into financial ruin. You can’t print money that you don’t have or can’t back up ! It is all a joke !
    Wake up, it is time to implement TERM LIMITS and PHOTO VOTER ID so our elections can be worth something again.

  12. hey you are doing a great job here! Do you think our elected officials that could do something are scared? of him? I mean they could end up meeting with the obama voodoo doll if they make too much fuss? Sessions is after sotomayor too, isn’t he? I can’t believe he is on your wall of shame, but I’m glad to see it. Thanks!
