Will Supreme Court Take Case on Obama’s Citizenship?

“CHICAGO — The U.S. Supreme Court will consider Friday whether to take up a lawsuit challenging President-elect Barack Obama’s U.S. citizenship, a continuation of a New Jersey case embraced by some opponents of Obama’s election.

The meeting of justices will coincide with a vigil by the filer’s supporters in Washington on the steps of the nation’s highest court.

The suit originally sought to stay the election, and was filed on behalf of Leo Donofrio against New Jersey Secretary of State Nina Mitchell Wells.

Legal experts say the appeal has little chance of succeeding, despite appearing on the court’s schedule. Legal records show it is only the tip of an iceberg of nationwide efforts seeking to derail Obama’s election over accusations that he either wasn’t born a U.S. citizen or that he later renounced his citizenship in Indonesia.

The Obama campaign has maintained that he was born in Hawaii, has an authentic birth certificate, and is a “natural-born” U.S. citizen. Hawaiian officials agree.

Among those filing lawsuits is Alan Keyes, who lost to Obama in the 2004 Illinois Senate race. Keyes’ suit seeks to halt certification of votes in California. Another suit by a Kentucky man seeks to have a federal judge review Obama’s original birth certificate, which Hawaiian officials say is locked in a state vault.

Other suits have been filed by Andy Martin, whose case was dismissed in Hawaii, and by an Ohio man whose case also was dismissed. Five more suits, all later dismissed, were filed in Hawaii by a person who is currently suing the “Peoples Association of Human, Animals Conceived God/s and Religions, John McCain (and) USA Govt.” The plaintiff previously sought to sue Wikipedia and “All News Media.”

The most famous case questioning Obama’s citizenship was filed in Pennsylvania in August on behalf of Philip J. Berg and sought to enjoin the Democratic National Committee from nominating Obama. The U.S. Supreme Court declined to accept the case. Earlier, a federal judge rejected it for “lack of standing” — ruling that Berg had no legal right to sue. In cases like this, judges sometimes believe the matter is best left to political institutions, such as the Electoral College or Congress, said legal scholar Eugene Volokh of the University of California at Los Angeles.

The remaining case with the highest profile is Donofrio vs. Wells. Because it was distributed by Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas to other justices for conference, it gained undue importance for people unschooled in how the court works, Volokh said.

Many petitioners seeking stays of pending events have their cases distributed to the full court, he said. Of those, Volokh found that 782 were denied in the last eight years while just 60 were heard — and not all of those ultimately were successful.”

Well go figure. Obama’s birth certificate is locked in a vault, and we’re all supposed to believe what the State Government of Hawaii tells us, without looking at it. It’s really simple, SHOW US THE BIRTH CERTIFICATE!

Oh well we can count on the Republican Party to jump on board and help us out on this right? WRONG! The Republican Party’s two biggest mouthpieces are urging people not to pursue this issue.

The Republican Party is Obama’s Best Friend

In case you don’t recognize these ‘characters’, the fathead, in the top photo, is Sean Hannity, the one in the bottom photo, is Rush Limbaugh………..they’re both traitors, in my opinion.

Why do I say this? Simple: To both of these Neocon talk show hosts, the Constitution is nothing more than a piece of scrap paper.

Take the growing outrage over the secrecy of Obama’s birth certificate; both of these clowns say that it’s a non issue.

I heard Limbaugh make this comment before the election. He said that the issue, of Obama’s birthplace, wasn’t worth fighting. He went on to say that we’d be better off concentrating on issues that we could do something about. Now this may not be the exact words of Limbaugh, however, the content is the same.

What’s interesting, is that, I called the RNC two days before and voiced my opinion on this matter. Now of course, I didn’t get to talk to a real person, just a voicemail. I told them, or the machine, that if they wanted to win the election, they’d better verbally pound Obama on his birth certificate……relentlessly.

As I said, two days later Limbaugh commented of “kooks” that had been leaving him E mails. E mails from people urging him to expose this matter of Obama’s place of birth. He went on to say something like, ” there’s no way we can prove that he was born in Kenya, so why mess with it.”. Like I said this is not a direct quote, but the content is the same.

Today, I heard Hannity speaking on the same subject. His response is even worse than Limbaugh’s. Hannity rambled on about how it’s an issue, but it’s not an issue. He went on to say that he is taking Obama and his family ‘at their word’ that he was born in the U.S.!

The one thing that Hannity and Limbaugh are apparently not worried about defending is the Constitution. Apparently, They would rather make nice than do their duty as so called ‘ conservatives’: defending the Constitution!

I wonder if they’re helping the RNC out of the goodness of their hearts or is the RNC paying them for their help?”

I think that this is fairly simple to figure out. They’re scared to death that Obama is going to push the “Fairness Doctrine” so they are trying to gain favor with him.

Why?

So that they can continue to espouse the Republican ideals of Conservatism? No. So that they continue to earn their millions by telling you how to think.  It’s not about ideals with these fools, it’s about dollars.
