“Why does a judge swear to discharge his duties agreeably to the constitution of the United States, if that constitution forms no rule for his government? if it is closed upon him, and cannot be inspected by him?”… Chief Justice Marshall opinion, Marbury versus Madison

“If Philip J. Berg as an American citizen, a respected Democratic operative and former attorney general of Pennsylvania doesn’t have the “standing” to bring this type of lawsuit against Obama, then who in America does have standing?”…Ellis Washington, professor of law

 From Citizen Wells Tuesday, June 21, 2011.

“The SCOTUS, Supreme Court of the United States, provided a decision in Bond v. United States on June 16, 2011. The ruling addressed standing and the Tenth Amendment.”

“Before accessing the impact of the ruling, especially regarding eligibility cases, the Citizen Wells blog will revisit some articles from 2008. It was apparent to us and many legal scholars that any citizen had standing to question the eligibility of Barack Obama, especially when many states indicated they had no authority or responsibility to do so. Per the Tenth Amendment, that gave the power to citizens.

It is also important to remember that the US Supreme Court did not render a decision on any eligibility case. It was lower courts that deemed that the plaintiffs had no standing.”

There are probably multiple reasons why the US Supreme Court chose to not take on any of the Obama eligibility cases. Clearly one of them is the fact that there are provisions in place to safeguard elections. One of them, grossly ignored, is the right of citizens to uphold the Constitution via Tenth Amendment Rights.

NC State Officers and Election

Officials are in Violation of the Law
             2008 Presidential Election

Eligibility for presidency

US Constitution
Article II
Section 1

“No person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained to the age of thirty five years, and been fourteen Years a resident within the United States.”

How President is elected


“The following provisions of law governing Presidential Elections are contained in Chapter 1 of Title 3, United States Code (62 Stat. 672, as amended):

§ 8.   The electors shall vote for President and Vice President, respectively, in the manner directed by the Constitution.”

The states are responsible for the primaries, general election and events leading up to the Electoral College vote

US Constitution
Article II
Section 1

“Each state shall appoint, in such manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a number of electors, equal to the whole number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in the Congress: but no Senator or Representative, or person holding an office of trust or profit under the United States, shall be appointed an elector.”

NC Officials responsible for upholding the US Constitution and Federal and State Election Laws

Governor Mike Easley has overall responsibilities as well as Electoral College certification.

Attorney General Roy Cooper is charged with compliance with all Federal and State laws.

Secretary Elaine Marshall is responsible for the NC Election process.

NC Board of Elections is responsible for the NC Election process.

NC Electoral College Electors are responsible for complying with Federal and State laws.

NC Judges ruling on election matters are bound to uphold the US Constitution and Federal and State laws.

Laws that apply to NC State Officials

US Constitution, Article II, Section 1. Presidential eligibility.

US Constitution, Article II, Section 1. States are responsible for Presidential Elections up to Electoral College vote.

Federal Election Law dictates that Electors must vote in a “manner directed by the Constitution.”

Article VI of the US Constitution states:

“The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislators, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by
Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution;”

NC Statute § 163-114.  Filling vacancies among party nominees occurring after nomination and before election.

“If any person nominated as a candidate of a political party for one of the offices listed below (either in a primary or convention or by virtue of having no opposition in a primary) dies, resigns, or for any reason becomes ineligible or disqualified before the date of the ensuing general election, the vacancy shall be filled by appointment according to the following instructions:


Vacancy is to be filled by appointment of national executive
committee of political party in which vacancy occurs”

NC Statute § 163‑19.  State Board of Elections; appointment; term of office; vacancies; oath of office.

“At the first meeting held after new appointments are made, the members of the State Board of Elections shall take the following oath:

I, __________, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support the Constitution of the United States; that I will be faithful and bear true allegiance to the State of North Carolina, and to the constitutional powers and authorities which are or may be established for the government thereof; that I will endeavor to support, maintain and defend the Constitution of said State, and that I will well and truly execute the duties of the office of member of the State Board of Elections according to the best of my knowledge and ability, according to law, so help me, God.”
NC Statute § 163‑23.  Powers of chairman in execution of Board duties.

“In the performance of the duties enumerated in this Chapter, the chairman of the State Board of Elections shall have power to administer oaths, issue subpoenas, summon witnesses, and compel the production of papers, books, records and other evidence. Upon the written request or requests of two or more members of the State Board of Elections, he shall issue subpoenas for designated witnesses or identified papers, books, records and other evidence. In the absence of the chairman or upon his refusal to act, any two members of the State Board of Elections may issue subpoenas, summon witnesses, and compel the production of papers, books, records and other evidence. In the absence of the chairman or upon his refusal to act, any member of the Board may administer oaths. (1901, c. 89, s. 7; Rev., s. 4302; C.S., s. 5923; 1933, c. 165, s. 1; 1945, c. 982; 1967, c. 775, s. 1; 1973, c. 793, s. 4.)”

The following facts and conclusions are self evident:

  • The State of NC, State Officials and Election Officials are responsible for the Presidential Election in NC up to and including the vote by the Electoral College Electors of NC.
  • The Electoral College Electors of NC are bound by the US Constitution and Federal and State Election law to vote for an eligible presidential candidate.
  • The Governor’s office, the Secretary of State’s office, the NC State Board of Elections and the Electoral College of NC has been notified in public and private of major issues surrounding the eligibility of Barack Obama.
  • The office of the Secretary of State and Board of Elections was notified multiple times, prior to the general election, of the Philip J Berg lawsuit and facts regarding Barack Obama’s ineligibility. The notification was via telephone conversation and emails as well as notification on the internet. The Board of Elections stated they had been aware of these issues for several months.
  • There are pending lawsuits in NC courts, other state courts, as well as US Supreme Court, challenging the eligibilty of Barack Obama.
  • Barack Obama has refused to supply legal proof of eligibility.
  • Pending or dismissed lawsuits have no bearing on the obligation of NC officials to uphold the rule of law.
  • Failure of NC officials to uphold the law and their election duties may result in the disenfranchisement of millions of voters.
  • The state of NC has complete control of the presidential election process in NC up to and including the Electoral College vote.
  • Placing a candidate on the ballot at the direction of a major political party does not relieve NC election officials of their duty to ensure eligibility of candidates.
  • The state of NC in NC Statute § 163-114 provides for replacing a candidate that “for any reason becomes ineligible or disqualified”.
  • The Tenth Amendment to the US Constitution gives power to the people not reserved for the federal government or the states.
  • The laws on the books not only allow, but require that NC officers and Elections Officials demand proof from any presidential candidate of eligibility.

If the officers and Election Officials do not perform their legal obligation to demand proof of eligibility from Barack Obama or any other presidential candidate, they will be subject to one or more of the following:

  • Prosecution
  • Lawsuit
  • Impeachment
  • Recall
  • Expulsion
  • Dismissal

Citizen Wells will be providing this information to the officers and Election officials of NC. If a satisfactory answer is not received soon, petitions will be initiated to remove non compliant officials from office. Judges are not immune.

What is the alternative?

The answer is in the Declaration of Independence.

    Obama needs to be removed. Corsi’s book has crapped out for whatever reason. Farah is nowhere to be seen and WND is putting out one or two lukewarm articles a week. I am telling you that if I was Farah, I would have had a 3 day birther convention organized at the Watergate Hotel already with all the names and evidence! That’s all it takes to get it mainstream.

    “Apparently, the ‘president of the world’ doesn’t need the authorization of the U.S. Congress”

    Monte Kuligowski
    Wednesday, June 22, 2011


    “At this point, no lingering questions should remain as to whether Barack Obama is faithful to uphold the Constitution and the laws of the United States.

    Contrary to popular belief, Mr. Obama did not first violate the War Powers Resolution (Act) on June 19, 2011. The president was in violation the day he committed U.S. Armed Forces to military operations in Libya on March 19. Why the Congress gave him an initial pass is inexplicable.” (snip).

    The very last sentence of Obama’s letter reads:

    “I am providing this report as part of my efforts to keep the Congress fully informed, consistent with the War Powers Resolution. I appreciate the support of the Congress in this action.”

    Unfortunately, for Mr. Obama, the report to be submitted within 48 hours of military deployment is subsequent to section 1541 of the War Powers Act. There is no way around the fact that, without Congressional authorization, the Libya offensive required an emergency created by an attack on the United States. (snip).

    Indeed, at this point, as the New York Times reported on June 18, both the Pentagon’s general counsel and the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel have soundly rejected Mr. Obama’s untenable justifications for bypassing the Congressional authorization mandate of the War Powers Act.

    In short, the White House essentially argues that NATO is in charge and the president is leading from behind. And, because Obama is only killing people and blowing up things via air strikes from U.S. fighter jets and warships, authorization from Congress is not required “because U.S. military operations are distinct from the kind of ‘hostilities’ contemplated by the [War Powers Act].”

    Ironically, in 1973 Congress chose to use the sweeping word, “hostilities” over “war,” in the War Powers Act to foreclose the baseless argument that Obama presently makes: hey, it’s not a “war.” It’s just a humanitarian “operation.”

    Unfortunately, for Obama, the Act doesn’t require “boots on the ground” for application. Under the Act, a president may not “introduce United States Armed Forces into hostilities” without prior authorization of Congress—unless, of course, we have a bona fide emergency.

    In the Libya situation we have neither. But we do have a defiant president preferring the surrender of the U.S. Constitution to the authority of the United Nations. Apparently, the president of the world doesn’t need the authorization of the U.S. Congress. ”

    “Obama was never eligible to run for the office”

    Alan Caruba
    © Alan Caruba, 2011

    Sunday, June 19, 2011


    “I always thought it was creepy the way Barack Hussein Obama has repeatedly referred to the likelihood of his being a one-term President. It is as if he knew, even as he campaigned in 2008, that all the loose ends and unanswered questions about his life would eventually disqualify him.

    It is now widely acknowledged that the mainstream media ran interference for him, ignoring or disparaging those who questioned his eligibility.

    After two and a half years in office, however, his arrogance and incompetence is so manifest that even they can no longer cover for him.

    Obama has single handedly generated a mass political movement called the Tea Party and election results for governors and members of Congress have put opposition candidates into office.

    On March 31, 1968, then-President Lyndon B. Johnson announced that he would not run for reelection, responding to the massive opposition to the war in Vietnam. On August 9, 1974, Richard M. Nixon announced his resignation in the wake of the Watergate scandal to avoid impeachment.

    I predict that Barack Hussein Obama will resign before the end of his first term. He may well do so prior to the September 2012 Democratic Party convention. (snip).

    The recognized definition of a “natural born citizen”, a requirement to be President, does not require much more than common sense. In a May article published by Canada Free Press, Lawrence B. Solum, the John E. Cribbett Professor of Law at the University of Illinois College of Law, is quoted as having written in September 2008, “Anyone born on American soil whose parents are citizens of the United States is a natural born citizen.”

    “Outgoing US Defense Secretary Robert Gates is worried about the shape of things to come in US foreign policy. In an interview with Newsweek over the weekend, Gates sounded the warning bells.” (snip).

    “Obama’s policy toward Libya is in many respects unique. It marks the first time since the War Powers Act passed into law 30 years ago that a US President has sent US forces into battle without seeking the permission of the US Congress. It is the first time that a president has openly subordinated US national interests to the whims of the UN and NATO and insisted on fighting a war that serves no clear US national interest.” (snip).

    (Article & Videos)

    Paul Joseph Watson
    Wednesday, June 22, 2011


    “I wonder what those same individuals would make of the following clip, graphic and disturbing, which brings home the repulsive hypocrisy of the “humanitarian” hoax behind the bombardment of Libya that Obama ignored his own constitutional lawyers to oversee without congressional approval, a campaign we were told would last “days, not weeks” that is now approaching its third month, and an intervention that was launched to “protect Libyan civilians”.

    After months of reporting that every claim of civilian casualties was a Gaddafi propaganda stunt, the establishment media was forced to concede that dropping bombs on apartment blocks isn’t a very proficient way of liberating people, unless you’re seeking to liberate their limbs from their body.

    NATO had to admit that a “rogue missile” destroyed a family home, killing nine civilians including two children, but not to be discouraged they followed it up 24 hours later with another bombardment that killed 15 people including three more dead kids, having bombed Tripoli’s Nasser University the week before.

    Recall that the May 1st slaughter of Gaddafi’s three grandchildren was also met with a collective shrug of the shoulders from the establishment press, even as Obama deceitfully claimed that the mission had nothing to do with targeting Gaddafi himself directly.

    Watching this video stirs harrowing feelings of senselessness, but taken from a wider perspective, the act of killing toddlers could actually benefit the NATO powers in the long run.

    With efforts to label the bombardment of Libya as a “no fly zone” and then a “kinetic military action,” anything basically to avoid what it really represents, a war absent congressional approval or any kind of moral legitimacy, Obama and NATO are desperately scrambling for any justification on which to base the inevitable ground invasion set to be launched in early October.”

    Americans, Immediately Arrest & Immediately Remove this insane man & place him in an insane asylum hospital, or he will get the USA and other nations destroyed in nuclear war!!

    “Meanwhile, Obama and NATO will continue to work with their own Al-Qaeda terrorists to achieve regime change at any cost – so expect many more babies to be “silenced” as part of the Nobel Peace Laureate’s quest to “protect Libyan civilians” and “stop violence”.

    In reality, this war has nothing to do with humanitarian protection and everything to do with violent and bloody conquest. As Louis Farrakhan spelled out during a recent speech, we have yet another “murderer in the White House.”


  13. Who Needs Congress?… Obama Rams Through DREAM Act By Executive Order

    The US Senate voted down the DREAM Act in December. But, it doesn’t matter. Obama pushed the law through by executive order last week.
    The Examiner reported:

    On Friday, the Obama administration issued a memo announcing that federal immigration officials do not have to deport illegal aliens if they are enrolled in any type of education program, if their family members have volunteered for U.S. military service, or even if they are pregnant or nursing.

    This new policy of “prosecutorial discretion” was quietly announced on Friday afternoon, and completely ignored by the mainstream press.

    “President Barack Obama’s administration is quietly offering a quasi-amnesty for hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants aiming to win reelection by mobilizing a wave of new Hispanic voters without alienating the populous at large, say supporters of stronger immigration law enforcement.

    The new rules were quietly announced Friday with a new memo from top officials at the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency. The “prosecutorial discretion” memo says officials need not enforce immigration laws if illegal immigrants are enrolled in an education center or if their relatives have volunteered for the US military.

    “They’re pushing the [immigration] agents to be even more lax, to go further in not enforcing the law,” said Kris Kobach, Kansas’ secretary of state. “At a time when millions of Americans are unemployed and looking for work, this is more bad news coming from the Obama administration… [if the administration] really cared about putting Americans back to work, it would be vigorously enforcing the law,” he said.”

The controllers of the New World Order believe they can achieve their one world government by destabilizing every country in the the middle east and northern Africa which will draw Russia and China into crisis to create a world-wide catastrophe. Once this event occurs, and the world is brought to the brink of total obliteration, the global banking cartel plans to move in with their final phase: a one world government and eugenics agenda.

    Alex urges his listeners to get the word out about this point in history. We are right now in the beginning stages of world war three. If this situation escalates, it can result in the worst world war that mankind has ever suffered.”

  23. bob strauss

    The republican candidates running for president have already shown themselves to be unworthy of our support. Not a single one of them are even talking about the unconstitutional, non-natural born Citizen, usurper in the White House.

    People, we need to turn up the heat, so that Obama’s unconstitutional status, and lack of eligibility, becomes a subject of debate during the 2012 election season. If the usurper is going to be dealt with, it needs to happen during this election cycle, and these candidates need to get off of the politically correct band wagon, and get on the side of the oath they took to defend the Constitution. This is the most important issue before the country right now, do we or don’t we have a President of the USA? I think we all know the answer to that question, that is why it is so important that this issue is addressed by anyone running for President. It’s time to stop pretending, and get serious.

  24. “‘Rathergate’ expert doubts Obama’s birth certificate”

    “There is something deeply wrong here,” Newcomer told WND. “There are artifacts in the birth certificate document that are strongly suggestive of a forgery. The document screams out that something is wrong.””

    Huntsman’s an Obot, he will be out soon.

  26. From Attorney Apuzzo

    No conspiracy here. This is fact and it is from our good friend, Attorney Leo Donofrio. Leo has done a new analysis and has confirmed what ‘WE THE PEOPLE’ have known and that is Barack Obama is not eligible for the presidency. Leo brings up new analysis with the case Wong Kim Ark and the Arkeny V. Governor of the State of Indiana. Donofrio has been a true American Patriot and we should show him our gratitude for a job well done exploiting these false rumors that those cases are the catalyst that makes Obama a natural born citizen and that he is eligble to be president, I will now present Donofrio’s brilliant thorough analysis that proves Obama is not eligible and is usurping the office of the presidency. We must contact our lawmakers to make them aware of this and I encourage you to flood your local online newspaper forums and blogs with this information.

    Here we go.

    The title of this article is correct. After having completed a more thorough review of the relevant US Supreme Court cases discussing the Constitution’s natural-born citizen clause, I have discovered precedent which states that a natural-born citizen is a person born in the jurisdiction of the US to parents who are citizens. Read that again. I said precedent, not dicta. The precedent holds that Obama is not eligible to be President of the United States.

    Up until the publication of this report today, all discussion of the natural-born citizen issue (from both sides of the argument) agreed there had never been a precedent established by the US Supreme Court, and that the various cases which mentioned the clause did so in “dicta”.

    Dicta are authoritative statements made by a court which are not binding legal precedent.

    Black’s Law Dictionary defines “precedent” as a “rule of law established for the first time by a court for a particular type of case and thereafter referred to in deciding similar cases“.

    Precedent that must be followed is known as binding precedent. Under the doctrine of stare decisis, a lower court must honor findings of law made by a higher court. On questions as to the meaning of federal law including the U.S. Constitution, statutes, and regulations, the U.S. Supreme Court’s precedents must be followed.

    It can no longer be denied that there is controlling US Supreme Court precedent concerning the definition of a natural-born citizen according to Article 2 Section 1 of the US Constitution. I predict satori will overcome those of you who have labored over this issue. This is not a remote obscure reading. It is, when revealed, a clear undeniable holding and binding precedent established by the highest Court of our nation which specifically defines an Article 2 Section 1 natural-born citizen as a person born in the US to parents who are citizens.

    Therefore, Obama – according to US Supreme Court precedent – is not eligible to be President.



    The Supreme Court in Wong Kim Ark directly construed the 14th Amendment and specifically avoided construction of Article 2 Section 1. The two case are not in contradiction. They are consistent.

    Wong Kim Ark is specifically limited to determining who is a citizen under the 14th Amendment.

    Minor is specifically limited to determining who is a US citizen, natural-born.

    According to the US Supreme Court precedent established by Minor, Obama is not eligible to the office of President of the United States.

  30. The natural born issue is no longer a matter of opinion and has been ruled upon by the SCOTUS.

    U.S. Supreme Court Precedent States That Obama Is Not Eligible To Be President.


    In spite of this SCOTUS ruling the birth certificate issue is of prime importance in the moment of now. If Obama has released a phony birth certificate, which is almost certainly true, he has committed a felony and will be forced to resign or be impeached.

    However our elite ruling class may give him a “graceful” way out.

  31. Obama has just turned Afghanistan into our generation’s Vietnam. He is surrendering. Shameful.

  32. “Therefore, Obama – according to US Supreme Court precedent – is not eligible to be President.

    This finding by Attorney Leo Donofrio and especially the endorsement of his finding by the great Attorney Mario Apuzzo is, in my opinion, a real break through. This establishment of precedent by the Supreme Court, coupled with the Court’s recent decision re. the Tenth Amendment and “standing” for U.S. citizens, should be able to gain real traction in a case that is forthcoming. What say?

    In comments at Mario Apuzzo’s site:


    “Puzo1 said…

    I am Mario Apuzzo, Attorney at Law of the State of New Jersey. I represented Commander Charles Kerchner and other plaintiffs in the case of Kerchner v. Obama/Congress which went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.

    This is to let anyone who is interested to know that there is an “Apuzzo” posting comments on the internet on the Obama eligibility issue who is not me. I hope that whatever this other Apuzzo has posted is supportive of my and others’ efforts rather than destructive. One can see an example of such posts at the following link which are in reference to Leo Donofrio’s latest essay on Minor v. Happersett.

  34. Charles Mountain,
    Why not have a convention re. the eligibility question? I think it would be great, if the great minds could come together for several days, gain some sort of news coverage, and lay out the entire case from all angles. Summer is not a good time, because people’s minds are on vacation and pleasure. The early fall would be better.

  35. GORDO | June 22, 2011 at 10:31 pm
    Gordo, thanks for the enlightenment re. the case cited by Leo D. It seems from Apuzzo’s website:

    …… it was Mario Apuzzo who has previously written extensively on the Minor v. Happersett case long before Leo D. “discovered” it. So it is rather that Leo agrees with Apuzzo and really not the other way around. Interesting comments over there.

  36. “Rep. Allen West: Lt. Col. Lakin was “Led Astray”
    by Sharon Rondeau

    “The Post & Email published a citizen letter dated May 15, 2011 sent to Lt. Col. Allen West (Ret.), now a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from Florida’s 22nd District. West’s response came in the form of a handwritten note on official stationery, pictured at right.

    Sir, first of all thank you for your service in the US Marine Corps. I must explain the LTC Terry Lakin case. He was led down a horrible path & was used. When he came to realize that he asked for my assistance. I was able to provide him with my defense counsel from Iraq. Things could have been much worse for Terry. The people who led him astray are to blame.

    Steadfast & Loyal, Allen”

    “Rep. Allen West to birthers: focus on Obama policies instead”
    by George Bennett | February 23rd, 2011

    “Said West: “I will tell you this: That is the dog chasing its tail. The most important thing is, it’s the policies. That’s what we have to be standing on.”

    “What is your objective? Your objective is getting back to a constitutional republic principles and values. If you spend your time worrying about someone’s citizenship, you will never get to that objective.”

    West didn’t offer his own opinion on Obama’s citizenship during the public forum. So PostOnPolitics asked him after the meeting.

    “He is a citizen. He’s the president. I mean, that’s all I know. I am concerned about his policies,” West said.”


  37. “The American political and media elite have determined, for whatever reason, that the Constitution’s eligibility requirements for the presidency are not important.

    That is the only conclusion one can draw from the misinformation, disinformation and disinterest they have shown to the serious questions swirling around not only the unique case of Barack Obama but also to the definition of “natural born citizen” in future presidential elections.

    It’s not unprecedented that failing republics dumb down eligibility requirements for the presidency. It’s not unprecedented that failing republics ignore or obscure eligibility requirements for the presidency. It’s not unprecedented that failing republics make tragic mistakes in permitting non-qualified candidates to serve in the presidency.”


  38. Mr. Bill(ms. helga)

    Gordo – Article hit the nail on the head, especially the last line –

    “Not only are we about to allow Obama to seek re-election as an ineligible candidate, we are about to AMEND THE CONSTITUTION BY DEFAULT.”

  39. Contrary to what Farah has to say, our Constitution CANNOT be amended via default. Because somebody says this doesn’t make it so. You Must remember that a lot of people are trying to SAY a lot of things. Many of these things are not founded in truth. This is simply another ploy designed to make everyone believe that “UP” is “DOWN”, and everybody should support this insane logic. Do your homewqork! Read the laws,and what is necessary to amend the Constitution. When you have finished you will see through this sort of PROPAGANDA.

  40. HOMEWORK TYPO…………….but I think you all know what I meant.

  41. Good morning. Interesting affirmation of lower court coming out of 2DCA.


    HASSAN v. U.S.
    ABDUL KARIM HASSAN, Plaintiff-Appellant,v.UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Defendants-Appellee.
    No. 10-2622-cv.
    United States Court of Appeals, Second Circuit.

    June 21, 2011.

    …..Moreover, even were we to credit Hassan’s proffered intention to run, Hassan has nonetheless failed to allege with any specificity how the natural born citizen requirement has already injured him or is likely to injure him in the immediate future. Hassan does not allege, for example, that any potential voter or contributor has declined to support him in light of his ineligibility for office if elected, nor does he allege that he has been rebuffed in any attempt to get on the ballot in any state or affiliate with any party. Indeed, Hassan’s complaint does virtually nothing to distinguish him from the millions of other naturalized citizens all of whom are similarly impacted by the natural born citizen requirement…..

    At least they recognize there is a problem for naturalized citizens.

  42. GORDO | June 22, 2011 at 10:31 pm |

    Yeah I saw it this morning, Thanks.
    It sounded good, L

    OldSalt79, what we need is someone to enforce the laws we have, and as we have seen, this usurper has stated, he will only enforce the laws that he chooses to enforce. Violations of the US Constitution, especially Article II, will not be enforced.

    This usurper needs to be arrested, to get him out of the White House, and we should also arrest every member of congress, along with every member of SCOTUS, and their staffs, and charge them all with treason, and conspiracy, but where is the enforcement?

  45. It looks like UA Law Professor Jack Chin has changes his position on who is NBC just prior to the release of BHO’s LFBC, just incase BHO was not born on US soil.

    From His 2008 article challenging John Mc Cains eligibility.

    (In the most detailed examination yet of Senator John McCain’s eligibility to be president, a law professor at the University of Arizona has concluded that neither Mr. McCain’s birth in 1936 in the Panama Canal Zone nor the fact that his parents were American citizens is enough to satisfy the constitutional requirement that the president must be a “natural-born citizen.”

    The analysis, by Prof. Gabriel J. Chin, focused on a 1937 law that has been largely overlooked in the debate over Mr. McCain’s eligibility to be president. The law conferred citizenship on children of American parents born in the Canal Zone after 1904, and it made John McCain a citizen just before his first birthday. But the law came too late, Professor Chin argued, to make Mr. McCain a natural-born citizen.

    “It’s preposterous that a technicality like this can make a difference in an advanced democracy,” Professor Chin said. “But this is the constitutional text that we have.”)
    Now this from Chin just days before the release of BHO’s LFBC.

    (Most scholars, including me, believe that natural born citizenship extends further, to all of those who obtain citizenship at birth by law. Calvin’s Case was about subjectship, duties owed by subjects to a monarch who claimed to rule by the grace of God. U.S. citizenship, by contrast, involves membership in a political community based on democratic principles. Those born overseas are natural born citizens not because of natural law, but because Congress determined that they are naturally part of the political community.

    If this argument is right, then even if Obama had been born overseas, he is still a natural born citizen, because he obtained citizenship at birth through his mother who unquestionably was a U.S. citizen.)

    So according to Professor Chin, a child born to a US citizen mother in a foeign country is a Natural Born Citizen POTUS eligible,unless that childs name name is John McCain. DOH!

  49. There are many, many people out here, both black and white, Hispanic, and others, that will vote for anyone that is running against the Illegal Obama. People are so disappointed, tired and totally fed up with the Obama regime and his consistent lies and corruption. There is no way that Obama will survive another election as long as there are intelligent people that can see through the so called “transparency” that Obama was pushing on the American public. We now know that he must be removed from the office he has illegally held for the past 2&1/2 years, before an armed revolution happens and millions of people killed and injured. The only person responsible for any action like this is Obama.

    “With apologies to none, I am calling out Congressman Allen West.”



    “Congress will vote on engagement in Libya, where U.S. forces have been assisting reb”els (pictured).”

    By Jonathan Allen
    June 21, 2011

    “House Republican leaders have drafted a pair of Libya resolutions — one of which is designed to end U.S. hostilities — that may be voted on this week.

    These War Powers Act resolutions are a response to President Obama’s determination that he need not seek congressional consent for a Libya mission that is more than three months old.

    One resolution would affirmatively authorize the use of force while the other would demand an end to U.S. engagement in Libya, with exceptions for non-combat activities.

    Increasingly, rank and file Republicans and Democrats are voicing opposition not just to the mission itself but also Obama’s insistence that U.S. activities — including strikes inside Libya — do not require congressional consent.”

  58. Hitler was ineligible for presidency, too


    By Joseph Farah
    Between The Lines
    June 23, 2011

    “The American political and media elite have determined, for whatever reason, that the Constitution’s eligibility requirements for the presidency are not important.

    That is the only conclusion one can draw from the misinformation, disinformation and disinterest they have shown to the serious questions swirling around not only the unique case of Barack Obama but also to the definition of “natural born citizen” in future presidential elections.

    It’s not unprecedented that failing republics dumb down eligibility requirements for the presidency. It’s not unprecedented that failing republics ignore or obscure eligibility requirements for the presidency. It’s not unprecedented that failing republics make tragic mistakes in permitting non-qualified candidates to serve in the presidency.

    It happened in 1932 in Germany with a candidate named Adolf Hitler.

    In fact, this tragedy, which resulted in the deaths of tens of millions of innocents and the utter destruction of the German republic, is documented in the biography of Dietrich Bonhoeffer by Eric Metaxas.

    We learn that on March 13, 1932, the day the German national election was being held to determine who would be president, “Nazi rowdies rode around in the backs of trucks with megaphones, stirring things up. A month earlier Hitler was found ineligible to run since he was born and reared in Austria. But this problem was strenuously shoved through a loophole, and he would run after all.”

    On Jan. 30, 1933, Hitler became the democratically elected president of Germany.

    Imagine how the course of history might have been changed had that “loophole” not been found – if the German people, political elite and media elite had held firm to their constitution that required presidents to be German-born when Hitler clearly was not.

    I can almost visualize the reaction to what I am saying here: “Farah is comparing Obama to Hitler!”

    No, I am not.

    Hitler is in a unique historical class of tyrants and fiends and mass murderers. There’s Hitler and Josef Stalin and Mao Zedong. Together they are responsible for the deaths of more than 100 million people.

    For perspective, Obama has merely contributed to the economic and moral degradation of the greatest country on earth.

    I use the Hitler illustration only to demonstrate there are real-world consequences to bending the rules in constitutional republics for political expediency.

    That’s what happened in Germany in 1932.

    It is happening again in America in the 21st century.”
