This case was held up by a clerk, but is now going before the US Supreme Court (and the clerk is being charged with misconduct). With the Berg case also going there, this issue doesn't look like it's going away. Our President-elect could be in some trouble here.
Also being challenged is the legitimacy of the candidacy of John McCain, who was born in Panama while his father was serving in the military. However, despite my not being a McCain supporter, I do believe a good case could be made that McCain, being born to two American parents in US-controlled territory while serving in the military, could easily pass the legitimacy test, especially if he were born in a US military hospital or other similar facility.
Obama, on the other hand, was allegedly born in Kenya to parents who were of different nationalities (an American mother and a Kenyan father) and not serving in the US military or other similar mission. There is also documentation from Barack's Indonesian school that suggests he may have been recorded as a citizen of that country at some point as well. IN addition, Obama's Hawaiian birth certificate has been called into question due to technicalities that exist within that state's laws.
The only way to stop all this would be for Obama to allow his original birth certificate to be released to the public. While this would be ridiculously simple and easy to do, he has steadfastly refused to do so, despite court orders ordering him to do just that.
I recently renewed my driver's license. I was required to show multiple forms of identification. Any time you start a new job, you are required to show certain forms of identification, largely to prove that you are eligible for the job. Why then, should our new President not also be required to show documentation proving that he is eligible for his job?
Mind this as well: If Barack Obama satisfies the order to show his original vault birth certificate and it turns out to be legitimate (to my satisfaction - which will be easy), then as far as I'm concerned, this issue is closed and I will deal with his successes and failures as they come. I am not bringing this to the fore for any reason other than to participate in the enforcement of the law set forth in the Constitution. Once the constitutional requirement is satisfied, so then should the law be satisfied. If it turns out that Obama was born on foreign soil, then he should be ashamed of himself for defying the Constitution in that manner, and so should his party. I would even support criminal charges being filed against him and the DNC for knowingly nominating an ineligible candidate for President of the United States. Should the SCOTUS drop the ball and not apply an appropriate ruling, then they also should face the wrath of the people.
If we cannot expect the US government to take the Constitution seriously in this matter, then that goes a long way in bringing its prior usurpations to the fore. Based on this and those prior usurpations, why would anyone be so stupid as to assume our elected officials will EVER take the Constitution seriously?
