So Obviously Ineligible that the Court is Afraid to Look

The case is open and shut- if any court had the moral courage to hear the case. Barack Obama is not a natural born citizen of the United States as defined by law and is thus constitutionally ineligible for the office of President. The soon-to-be Emperor is about to take the throne buck naked and most everyone is afraid to look at the plain language of the law for the sake of a man. This is a dark hour for the Republic.


From Forseti on PAPUNDIT on what the Constitution says about the courts tackling this issue......

"What about the United States Supreme Court? The first paragraph of their own website makes the following promise to the American People - “As the final arbiter of the law, the Court is charged with ensuring the American people the promise of equal justice under law and, thereby, also functions as guardian and interpreter of the Constitution.”

If the Court has this duty to function as guardian and interpreter of the Constitution, then when must it act to qualify the President elect? Before, during or after the election? Should it be barred from deciding this issue because of timing, i.e, the candidate has already won the election, so it’s too late? Perhaps we should turn to the 20th Amendment for guidance.

“If, at the time fixed for the beginning of the term of the President, the President elect shall have died, the Vice President elect shall become President. If a President shall not have been chosen before the time fixed for the beginning of his term, or if the President elect shall have failed to qualify, then the Vice President elect shall act as President until a President shall have qualified; and the Congress may by law provide for the case wherein neither a President elect nor a Vice President elect shall have qualified, declaring who shall then act as President, or the manner in which one who is to act shall be selected, and such person shall act accordingly until a President or Vice President shall have qualified.”

Section 3 of the 20th Amendment does allow for the possibility that a President elect might not qualify. The language of the Amendment suggests that the qualification period can come between the period when the candidate wins the election and when he is sworn in. As the guardian and interpreter of the Constitution, it’s arguable that the Court must scrutinize the President-elect’s natural born citizen evidence during this time period. If the Court, instead, turns a blind eye to it, then just who will be the judge of “if the President elect shall have failed to qualify,…?” Furthermore, what will be the fate of the Constitution, the Court, and the country if it is later discovered that Mr. Obama is not a natural born citizen? Will every treaty, law, military act become void ab initio? Will the nation be launched into a state of civil unrest and unyielding division? "


Watch the video, there is simply no doubt that Obama is not a "natural born" citizen. He likely is a "naturalized" citizen- a citizen by law who nevertheless has circumstances of birth which raise questions about one's undivided loyalty to the United States. Such citizens are constitutionally barred from the Presidency.
