Chief Justice Roberts in Idaho


Chief justice publicly accepts WND's eligibility petition

Attorney Orly Taitz talks to Roberts, who agrees to read Obama-birth docs


Orly Taitz confronted the chief justice yesterday with legal briefs and a WND petition bearing names of over 325,000 people asking the court to rule on whether or not the sitting president fulfills the Constitution's "natural-born citizen" clause.

According to Orly Taitz, the attorney who confronted Chief Justice John Roberts at a lecture at the University of Idaho, the judge promised before the gathered crowd that he would, indeed, read and review the briefs and petition.

"I addressed him in front of 800 people in the audience," Taitz told WND, "including university officials, the president of the Idaho State Bar and the chief justice of the Supreme Court of Idaho, and in front of all them, [Roberts] promised to read my papers."

Roberts was lecturing on Abraham Lincoln to approximately 1,200 attendees of the annual Bellwood Memorial Lecture Series at the Moscow, Idaho, university. Roberts has been chief justice of the Supreme Court since his nomination by President George W. Bush and subsequent confirmation in 2005.

Earlier in the week, Taitz confronted Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, who told her the issue of Obama's eligibility, which has been raised before the Supreme Court at least four times but has yet to be given a single hearing, still lacked the votes of the required four justices in conference before it would be officially heard.

Taitz said, "I told Scalia that I was an attorney that filed Lightfoot v. Bowen that Chief Justice Roberts distributed for conference on Jan. 23 and now I represent nine state reps and 120 military officers, many of them high ranked, and I want to know if they will hear Quo Warranto and if they would hear it on original jurisdiction, if I bring Hawaii as an additional defendant to unseal the records and ascertain Obama's legitimacy for presidency."

The legal phrase Quo Warranto essentially means an explanation is being demanded for what authority Obama is using to act as president. An online constitutional resource says Quo Warranto "affords the only judicial remedy for violations of the Constitution by public officials and agents."

At the lecture in Idaho, Taitz grabbed the attention of Justice Roberts by boldly addressing her allegation that a clerk had buried the case.

"I said, 'Justice Roberts, my name is Orly Taitz. I'm an attorney from California, and I got up at 3 o'clock in the middle of the night, flew and drove thousands of miles just to ask you a question. So please give me some leeway,'" Taitz told WND. "My question is, do you know there is illegal activity going on in the Supreme Court of the United States?"

According to Taitz, the room was stunned silent as she continued, "I have presented my case to you, and you personally agreed to hear this case in conference. But your clerk refused to forward a supplemental brief to you. He has hidden this brief from you. He refused to put it on the docket. Additionally, my case was erased from the docket one day after the Inauguration, two days before my case was to be heard.

"Outraged citizens and members of the media and state representatives are calling the Supreme Court, demanding to have the case reentered on the docket," Taitz told Roberts.

Then she held up the WND petition and continued, "Moreover, here are the names of U.S. citizens who signed this petition and who sent individual letters to individual justices, including you, Justice Roberts, all of them demanding the same thing – that you hear my case in regards to Barack Hussein Obama's eligibility for presidency."

According to Taitz, Roberts approached the microphone and said, "I see you have papers. I promise you I will read all your papers, I will review them. Please give them to my Secret Service and I will review all of them."

Shortly thereafter, Taitz told WND, a Secret Service agent identified by his badge as Gilbert Shaw accepted two suitcases of documents and pledged to deliver them to Roberts.

One voice crying in the light can start a whole nation crying. With one voice, together, we can tell everyone that America will NOT go quietly into the night. We WILL fight, we WILL NOT be silent, for we've done it for far too long. I hope to God Roberts reads it and we get it voted on before Obama has a chance to put his own liberal lefty loons on the bench. He needs to cough it up. If I have to cough up mine to get a job, then he has to as well. He works for me and you, and it's a part of getting the job, so we want to see it. And we want to see it now!

It was given to the SS, I wonder if Justice Roberts was able to get it back in order to read it. The SS took Scalias documents and we don't know for sure if he's even seen it.

Let's hope and pray that this effort is successful. Yes, I worry that SCOTUS will put it aside until the court is heavy Left. It seems so simple, just produce a frigging birth certificate. Almost all Americans have to do so several times in their lives.

I am almost positive now that Obama is not a naturalized American. It is possible he is and is holding out for a gotcha moment to produce a BC. Those Kenyan relatives though claiming he was born in Kenya carry a lot of weight with me and I think Obama was born in Kenya.

It's obvious that the Senate hasn't done their job, not in a long time I might add. They either didn't verify 0Bama's eligibility when he entered the U.S. Senate initially nor did they question his eligibility when he ran for higher office. The question isso simple to resolve if he is legitimate, produce the requisite birth certificate. Instead we get the obfuscated verification from Snopes or FactCheck, both of which are decidedly biased towards 0bama(That O is a zero, it is used as a placeholder in place value, that is all 0bama is, a zero). Roberts, no matter how noble he is, is one of the opposition, I harbor no illusions that he'll even lift a finger, there is an imperious attitude in SCOTUS going back as far as I can remember, that can be alleviated only in the removal of those who legislate from the bench, pick any method of choice.

Born in the USA? Barry Hussein Soetoro could have been born on the desk in the west wing of the white house. His DADDY was a citizen of Kenya. He was therefore born a citizen of Kenya. It says on his own website "fight the smears." His Kenyan citizen ship expired on his 21st birthday. But it clearly means he was born as a citizen of Kenya. This much we do know. What we do not know if he has any American citizenship at all. His mother was a minor, he schooled in Indonesia, where dual citizenship is NOT recognized, we just do not know if he ever was part American citizen, but we know he was part Kenyan citizen, and thats all we need.
