Sarah Palin recently stated that bringing up questions about Obama’s birth certificate are fair game and she’s right. She’s also the only one in the country that could bring a lawsuit challenging Obama’s citizenship status & eligibility for POTUS that the courts and the MSM could not ignore!
Why? Because she, as a plaintiff, would have undeniable standing … meaning she has been DIRECTLY effected by Obama’s ineligibility to hold the office of POTUS.
To have standing one has to demonstrate injury (loss the the election to an ineligible candidate) and the fact that the defendant’s conduct (refusal to provide any documentation that BHO is a natural born citizen) was the reason for injury.
While the Obamabots have been quick to report that every suit brought to date has been dismissed, what they haven’t reported is the reason why. Aside from jurisdictional and procedural issues , the primary reason for the dismissals has been because the courts have held that the plaintiffs in these suits did not have the standing necessary to move forward.
What the Obamabots have also refused to discuss is the fact the no case has reached a point where the merits of the Obama’s eligibility have been explored in open court.
I asked my first questions about Obama’s eligibility to hold the office of POTUS in summer of 2008.
The questions were simple enough. Can a person with dual citizenship be President (no) and how could Obama be a natural born citizen as required by Article II, Section1 of the Constitution if his father was a British subject? The answer is he cannot which also means, it doesn’t matter whether BHO was born in Kenya or Hawaii, his citizenship status at the time of his birth automatically disqualified him for POTUS.
At the time I asked these questions about Obama’s eligibility, I was naive enough to believe that the MSM would do their jobs, investigate the allegations, and bring the truth to the American people. At the time, I was also naive to believe that the DNC, that the 50 Secretaries of State, Constitutional lawyers, the Electoral College, and whole host of other players, including the courts, would also do their jobs.
Well, as anyone who has been following this story from the beginning knows, we were all wrong.
What we couldn’t know at the time was that people intent on bringing Obama into office were willing to go to any lengths, ready to do anything including committing fraud, knowingly falsifying records, using intimidation tactics, ridicule and violence. It has been reported that the suspicious death of one of the men who looked at Obama’s passport records early in ‘08 was to silence him and prevent him from ever being questioned.
What we couldn’t know at the time was that over 200 members of Congress, themselves attorneys, knew of Obama’s ineligibility and did nothing! Some were cowards, some were intimidated, and some knew (see nonfeasance) that if Obama’s eligibility went unchallenged then precedent would have been set. This would now allow other candidates (like Schwarzenegger) who were not natural born citizens to hold the office of POTUS … and voila the Constitution would have been changed without a single Senator or Congressperson having to cast a vote. This is subterfuge, pure and simple.
Never forget what law Professor Peter J. Spiro made abundantly clear on the topic …
[…] “Constitutional questions do not require constitutional decisions. If non-judicial actors—including Congress (Frank, Hatch, Kennedy, Waters, Graham, McCaskill, Conyers), editorialists (NY Times, MSNBC, LA Times et al), leading members of the bar (Turley, Dean, Epstein, Toobin) , and the People themselves (can you say Kool-Aid?)manage to generate a constitutional consensus, there isn’t much that the courts can do about it. In cases such as this one, at least, that seems to be an acceptable method of constitutional determination.”
He laid out the blueprint for the destruction of the natural born citizen clause. Reduced to its simplest common denominator, the plan was to deny, obscure,refuse to produce documents that the voters of this country have a right to inspect and review, and ignore the issue.
Members from both parties are guilty of malfeasance as it relates to Obama’s eligibility to office. Some belong in jail, including Pelosi and Dean (IMHO). When the complete story finally told it will show that there was a conspiracy to put a pretender in office, by pass the Constitution, and turn this country inside out.
All of which brings us back to Sarah Palin. Sarah you can change the direction of this country … you have to bring suit against the usurper in the White House.
