Supreme Court Asked To Halt Tuesday's Vote

Supremes asked to halt Tuesday's vote

Constitutional crisis feared over Obama's 'qualifications'


The U.S. Supreme Court is being asked to help the nation avoid a constitutional crisis by halting Tuesday's election until Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama documents his eligibility to run for the top office in the nation.

Democratic attorney Philip Berg had filed a lawsuit alleging Obama is ineligible to be president because of possible birth in Kenya, but as WND reported, a federal judge dismissed the complaint claiming Berg lacks standing to bring the action.

The 34-page memorandum that accompanied the court order from Judge R. Barclay Surrick concluded ordinary citizens can't sue to ensure that a presidential candidate actually meets the constitutional requirements of the office.

Instead, Surrick said Congress could determine "that citizens, voters, or party members should police the Constitution's eligibility requirements for the Presidency," but that it would take new laws to grant individual citizens that ability.
"Until that time," Surrick says, "voters do not have standing to bring the sort of challenge that Plaintiff attempts to bring."
In a statement today, Berg said he is applying to Justice David Souter for an "Immediate Injunction to Stay the Presidential Election of November 4, 2008."
"I am hopeful that the U.S. Supreme Court will grant the injunction pending a review of this case to avoid a constitutional crisis by insisting that Obama produce certified documentation that he is or is not a "natural born" citizen and if he cannot produce documentation that Obama be removed from the ballot for president," Berg said.
"We must legally prevent Obama, the unqualified candidate, from taking the office of the presidency of the United States," Berg said.

Wild Thing's comment...........

I would hate to get stuck with Obama and then find out yet another truth about him. The Supreme Court could make it where his birth certificate question has to be answered.

Obama is the one that has made this a big deal by his actions and not doing what he was supposed to do.

The thing is he has got to be an American running for President as it says in the US Constitution. We have the right to know if he is an imposter or not.

....Thank you Mark for sending this to me.

Oh Lord, that would make a lot of people very angry, wouldn't it?
I would say, have the vote, and order him to produce the birth certificate and if it shows him other than an American Citizen, he is stripped of his win (if he wins). All the votes for him would then be tossed out. Too bad, so sad. They would do that to McCain too if he weren't an American Citizen. Obama's career would be over for good.
I knew he went to Hawaii for some other reason than his ailing grandma. It was to have that birth certificate sealed. I'm surprised the governor did that, knowing she's a republican. Did he threaten her too?

I commented on another Blog that all Obama would need to do is produce the Passport he used to travel abroad when he was a college student. A US passport is proof of citizenship as a birth certificate must be presented to obtain one.

Another commentator than pointed out that when Obama was a college student, he had an Indonesian Passport. Why would a supposed American Citizen have and utilize an Indonesian Passport?

It's gonna be stalled!!! Souter is a Liberal. I hope he does get the injunction and that the SCOTUS mandates Obama prove his citizenship. But I have less than optimum hopes.

Hot damn that all sounds familiar Chrissie, back in '68, I and 20 of my fellow soldiers petitioned Justice William O. Douglas over the constitutionality of sending troops into an undeclared war when their terms of enlistment forbade the practice. The written contract or terms of enlistment were reworded after '66, Douglas stalled and 6 months into my tour we got his refusal to act on the grounds that we were already serving in a combat zone. He didn't mind keeping our retainer fee either. I got drunk celebrating that son of a bitch's death. FDR lied to get us into WWII, Truman and Kennedy /Johnson got us into two undeclared wars and these asshole Democrats blame Bush for all their woes when the enemy attacked us first.
As Bob pointed out, that certified birth certificate is mandatory to get a U.S. Passport. Also to get a security clearance you have to prove citizenship and undergo screening, how did Obama pass the scrutiny for U.S. Senator? Bought and paid for by muzzie connections might answer that question.

I don't know if Barack Hussein Obama is, in fact, a natural born citizen according to the Constitution. However, as BobF states, a birth certificate is required to obtain a passport. Many Americans provide their birth certificate as one item of proof of citizenship to obtain the new high security driver's license's in many states as I did in New Jersey.

So, why won't Barack Obama provide his original birth certificate to shoot down any question of his citizenship qualification to be President of the United States and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces? If millions of ordinary citizens do this all of the time, what does Barry Obama have to hide?

As far as a disqualification after the election goes, I am not sure what happens. Section 3. of the 20th Amendment to the Constitution seems to address this but I don't see a clearly defined path of resolution.

"3. 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."

What does "if the President elect shall have failed to qualify, then the Vice President elect shall act as President until a President shall have qualified;" mean? How and who does a new President qualify? Do we hold a new general election while crazy Joe Biden "acts" as President? Or, does the Democrat controlled Congress or Senate alone select the next President who the general public never voted for? Hillary Clinton? Nancy Pelosi?

Lynn, good point, I wonder too if he threatened her the Gov. there or paid her off or something.
