SCOTUS Seeks Obama Birth Certificate
Remember, this is an issue because he consistently and steadfastly has refused to release his birth certificate. Most people, including myself, speculate Pbama won't release it because he wasn't born in Hawaii as he claims. He's not a naturally born United States Citizen, therefore, he does not meet the Constitutional Requirement to serve as President of The United States.
From The Valley Truth:
Supreme Court Justice David Souter’s Clerk informed Philip J. Berg, the lawyer who brought the case against Obama, that his petition for an injunction to stay the November 4th election was denied, but the Clerk also required the defendants to respond to the Writ of Certiorari (which requires the concurrence of four Justices) by December 1. At that time, Mr. Obama must present to the Court an authentic birth certificate, after which Mr. Berg will respond.
If Obama fails to do that, it is sure to inspire the skepticism of the Justices, who are unaccustomed to being defied. They will have to decide what to do about a president-elect who refuses to prove his natural-born citizenship.
“I can see a unanimous Court (en banc) decertifying the election if Obama refuses to produce his birth certificate,” says Raymond S. Kraft, an attorney and writer. “They cannot do otherwise without abandoning all credibility as guardians of the Constitution. Even the most liberal justices, however loathe they may to do this, still consider themselves guardians of the Constitution. The Court is very jealous of its power - even over presidents, even over presidents-elect.”
Also remember that on December 13, the Electoral College meets to casts its votes. If it has been determined that Mr. Obama is an illegal alien and therefore ineligible to become President of the United States, the Electors will be duty-bound to honor the Constitution.
From The Philadelphia Bulletin:
Philip J. Berg, the attorney who filed suit against Mr. Obama challenging him to produce his original birth certificate to prove he meets the constitutional requirements to serve as U.S. president. Mr. Berg filed a Writ of Certiorari in the U.S. Supreme Court late in October, in an effort to force Mr. Obama to produce the document.
Accordingly, the U.S. Supreme Court has said that Mr. Obama, the DNC and all co-defendants are to respond to the writ, on or before Dec. 1.
The judge in Mr. Berg's original case ruled that Mr. Berg does not have standing to enforce the constitutional requirements on a presidential candidate. Mr. Berg appealed the ruling to the Supreme Court.
"I look forward to receiving defendant Obama's response to the writ and am hopeful the U. S. Supreme Court will review Berg v. Obama. I believe Mr. Obama is not a constitutionally-qualified natural-born citizen and is ineligible to assume the office of President of the United States."
Mr. Obama put an electronic photo of a birth certification on his "Fight the Smears" Web site, a document that his critics have found unconvincing.
In Honolulu, Andy Martin, a longtime critic of Mr. Obama, filed a lawsuit in October, in an attempt to get the Hawaiian Department of Health to release Mr. Obama's birth certificate records. Mr. Martin announced last week that he plans to get members of the Electoral College to pressure Mr. Obama into presenting his birth certificate.
"We are going to start organizing a 'Goal Line Stand' in the Electoral College to force Barack Obama to produce his original 1961 birth certificate for review by the American people," Mr. Martin said. "Republicans, conservatives and independents have a new rallying point. Don't let Obama pass through the Electoral College until he has produced his original birth certificate and ended the mystery shrouding his origins."
No one, aside from Department of Health officials, has seen the original document.
and why are you automically assuming Obama is Muslim?
Because I can.
oooooh, blame the Bushes for everything right?
The Supreme Court is not a court that rules on facts. It rules only on law. (Sadly, the allegation that Justice Souter asked for the birth certificate came only from Berg, and no one should believe it.)
The court has not asked Obama to respond to the question of whether or not he is a citizen.
The court has asked Obama and the US election commission (part of the US government, represented by the US Solicitor General) to respond to Berg's case that his suit was improperly dismissed by the lower level courts because he did not have standing to sue.
Obama does not have to respond. The US government is enough, and if it argues that Berg had no standing to sue, and the court does not grant Cert, then you lose. If the court grants Cert, it would then hear the case of whether Berg had standing to sue, ONLY the case of whether Berg had standing to sue. And, in the unlikely case that it grants Berg standing to sue, it would order the case back to the lower courts for findings on facts.
And then, you could lose on the facts, since there is no evidence that Obama was born anywhere else than Hawaii and good evidence he was born in Hawaii.
In other words, you have about one in a hundred chance.
Why are you so defensive on this birth certificate issue? Why do you not care that his citizenship is verified?
Why does he refuse to release it? That, you cannot answer.
(Sadly, the allegation that Justice Souter asked for the birth certificate came only from Berg, and no one should believe it.)
Got a legitimate site or reputable news site that supports your statement? We'd all like to see it. Let us know.
Certainly SOMETHING is going to happen with this, even though there are a few Nay sayers among us.
I prefer to keep Hope alive. Yes indeed!
Would this not be THEE GRAND CONSPIRACY if it involved a Republican President Elect !?!?!!
It's fun being able to lob conspiracy theories back at The Left. Well, at least it is for me. I've got four years ahead of me to do this too!
This birth certificate issue can be one of many things that will haunt Obama's entire presidency, much like "selected not elected," "warmonger," and such haunted Bush for 8 yrs.
Give The Left a taste of their own medicine. That's what I do.
The question will be why doesn'
t he ? If he can prove this than do so and move on. He should have done this a long time ago and we wouldn't be here now, (if he is a natural born citizen and one who lived here for at least 14 years after repatriating.
If he does not it will haunt him forever just like Prseident Bush in 2000. Except then the Dems will be calling the Republicans a bunch of sore losers along with the main stream news media who will harp in as well.
Don't give up though, expose this fraud for what he is. Even if he stays in office. They hounded President Bush for 8 years, it's our turn now. I feel bad for President Bush, I hope the man can have some peace in his retirement.
Thank you for your input. I agree, that the birth certificate will haunt his term forever if he does not produce it.
Like many, I cannot understand why he will not release it and keeps it under seal.
The only reason, then, is to conclude that he is not a Naturally born U.S. citizen and therefore is not entitled to the office of the Presidency.
