DONOFRIO v. WELLS – THE ONGOING CENSORSHIP ATTACKS

What is it that they have to fear?

Who am I referring to when I say “they”? I’m talking about the Obama’s thugs that hacked into Leo Donforio’s original site at at blogtext.org 5 days ago. His blog, Natural Born CItizen, went down as Leo was discussing his case Donofrio v Wells on Plains Radio. This case is scheduled for a closed conference between the Justices of the Supreme Court on December 5th. At that time, should the Justices agree, full arguments will begin in front of the court that will determine if Barack Hussein Obama was ever eligible to run for the office of POTUS.

In Leo’s own words:

Yesterday, Nov. 21 2008, my previous blog – blogtext.org/naturalborncitizen – was taken down as was the entire blogtext.org network.

I have relocated here to Blogger.com. Mirror sites containing the exact content have been (or will be shortly) set up. Everybody is hereby authorized to mirror the contents of this blog.

Today I visited the new site at http://thenaturalborncitizen.blogspot.com and read a cautionary message that said in effect “enter at your own risk.” Why would this be necessary . . . it’s just a blog, right? Right! I am directing people to Leo’s newest site so they can view the court documents, and an array of posts, videos, etc. that pertain to this case.

Let me make a couple of quick points:

  1. People censor that which they fear . . . in this case, the truth about Obama’s eligibility.
  2. There are numerous mirror sites that will continue to contain the information about Donofrio v. Wells, even if Leo’s newest site, goes down again.
  3. To those who keep messing with the site, videos, etc. Every incursion and attempt to stop discussion and information dissemination is further proof that Leo and a host of others who have lawsuits pending are on the right track.

Here’s another video asking for Obama to produce his birth certificate. The Donofrio suit is not anchored to the birth certificate issue, but to Barack’s dual citizenship at birth. The question remains . . . why not just produce the documents?

OBAMA WILL VIOLATE THE CONSTITUTION IF HE APPOINTS HILLARY SECRETARY OF STATE

(H/T) OIL FOR IMMIGRATION

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Well, how’s this grab you? It seems MSNBC has suddenly found out that there is a document that we live under called the Constitution. Ah, gives me faith in humanity once again, because I was beginning to think we were living in a Banana Republic. With apologies to Banana Republics world wide, of course!

After all, the gang at MCNBC thinks Bush should leave office NOW so that our “Dear Leader” can ascend to the thrown post haste. (opps, I meant throne, it was the election that was thrown!) Never mind that pesky problem of Obama’s ineligibility due to his having been born a dual citizen.

Memo to those fine folks at MSNBC who think they can pick and choose those parts of the Constitution they like and toss out or disregard the parts they don’t like… read a little further in the Constitution to Article II Section 1. Your buddy, Obama, is in deep sneakers if the Supremes decide to hear the the Donofrio v Wells case. They are our last hope against the barbarians trying to tear our Republic apart!

You heard it for yourself in the video. Hillary has a problem being named to the post of Secretary of State because of that pesky old Constitution, you know, the document that is supposed to make us a people and a nation of laws . . . what a quaint concept!

According to Michael Stokes Paulson, a Law Professor who has written on the application of the Emoluments Clause in the past, he says this regarding the Clinton appointment:

[…] The Emoluments Clause of Article I, section 6 provides “No Senator or Representative shall, during the Time for which he was elected, be appointed to any civil Office under the Authority of the United States, which shall have been created, or the Emoluments whereof shall have been encreased during such time.” As I understand it, President Bush’s executive order from earlier this year “increased” the “Emoluments” (salary) of the office of Secretary of State. Last I checked, Hillary Clinton was an elected Senator from New York at the time. Were she to be appointed to the civil Office of Secretary of State, she would be being appointed to an office for which “the Emoluments whereof shall have been increased” during the time for which she was elected to serve as Senator. The plain language of the Emoluments Clause would thus appear to bar her appointment … if the Constitution is taken seriously (which it more than occasionally isn’t on these matters, of course).

[…] Unless one views the Constitution’s rules as rules that may be dispensed with when inconvenient; or as not really stating rules at all (but “standards” or “principles” to be viewed at more-convenient levels of generality); or as not applicable where a lawsuit might not be brought; or as not applicable to Democratic administrations, then the plain linguistic meaning of this chunk of constitutional text forbids the appointment of Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State.

Listen to entire video, particularly towards the end when Pete Willams says Obama will disregard the Constitution.

Well, why shouldn’t he disregard this part of the Constitution, as well. After all, isn’t BHO paying attorneys $1,000 an hour (at 3 law firms) to withhold corroborating documents which prove his eligibility to hold the office of POTUS. This obfuscation is because Obama reveres the Constitution, right? Right? (For the dullards out there, that last statement was dripping in sarcasm!)

SO I say, why have a Constitution when our law makers think the laws/rules don’t apply to them? BTW, if you missed it, in a recent national survey of our country’s lawmakers, the majority demonstrated that they are as ignorant about civics and how our government works as the Obama voters. When recently tested, only 44% could pass a government civics test! 44%! And I thought Senator Claire McCaskill was only corrupt . . . guess she’s dumb and stupid, as well.

BTW, don’t anyone write and tell me to be nice. This is my blog and I can rant if I want to. Hey, isn’t that a song?

COWARDICE OR COMPLICITY – WHY THE MSM HASN’T COVERED THE OBAMA/DONOFRIO/SUPREME COURT ISSUES

For weeks bloggers have been asking this (seemingly) rhetorical question . . . why haven’t the MSM picked up on the explosive nature of the lawsuits questioning Obama’s eligibility to run for POTUS? We have the first person of color, elected to serve as the president of the most powerful nation on earth, multiple lawsuits have been filed questioning if Obama was ever eligible to run . . . and there’s a virtual news blackout. Hmm, what’s wrong with this picture?

On its face, this may be one of the two or three most important news stories of the decade, so why the blackout? The Donofrio lawsuit isn’t anchored to the “standing” issues that have plagued Berg and others. Mr. Donofrio’s suit alleges ineligibility because Barack’s father was a British citizen at the time of his birth, therefore Barack held dual citizenship thus him making ineligible to run for the office of president.

Think about this, Donofrio’s case will be discussed in conference by the United States Supreme Court ( docket no. 08A407, Donofrio v. Wells) on Dec. 5th . . . ten days before the Electoral College meets and the sound you hear is silence. If the Supremes decide this case has merit, lawyers will be arguing this case in front of the highest court in the land! Gosh, maybe it’s me but this seems more important than Palin pardoning a turkey.

I’ve finally come up with two reasons for this intransigence, the only ones left in my estimation, other than the MSM has suddenly turned stupid. Their refusal to investigate Obama’s eligibility and the potential for a Constitutional crisis is either cowardice or MSM has always known about Obama’s ineligibility problems and chose to intentionally keep this information away from the general public. If it turns out that Obama was never eligible to run for POTUS, as determined by the Supreme Court, then the MSM will have been complicit in a cover-up bigger than any fraud perpetrated by Nixon and his gang of Watergate conspirators.

Some have suggested that the MSM’s cowardice is because they “fear” racial strife, riots, and worse. To which I would say these kinds of thoughts have been put out there by the MSM itself. Candidly, I have always been surprised that leaders in the black community haven’t come forward to condemn this stereotypical image of black violence in our community. Leaders in the black community should condemn this stereotyping as it demeans the black community and all of America. Further, if the MSM really felt that violence was/is a possibility, why haven’t there been shows on the futility of violence, or discussions about how all American’s need to come together and not pulled apart despite disappointment in individual politicians.

Should it turn out that Obama was always ineligible,  we can still be proud that this country demonstrated it could elect a black man, a man of color, of mixed heritage to the office of POTUS. There was no “Bradley effect” . . . Obama won because people of all ethnicities voted for him. Nothing changes that fact! Regardless of ultimate outcome of Obama’s eligibility for the office, let me say again, nothing changes that fact. We have grown as a nation. We can be proud of that growth.

If it turns out that the MSM has been complicit in a cover-up, the consequences will be devastating, particularly for the voters who were swayed into voting for Obama by the CNN, MSNBC, the NY Times etc. The fourth estate will have destroyed itself, imploded on itself because of its own arrogance and lack of foresight.

Mr. Obama . . . end the speculation, step up to the plate, put your ambitions aside, be a patriot. If you love America, release all the pertinent documents so we can move on. History will not judge you kindly until and unless these eligibility issues are cleared up, once and for all. Doubt will hang over your presidency like a thick fog. The whispers will always be there, “he was a fraud.”

Here’s yet another voice asking why no birth certificate. (H/T Oil for Immigration)

Pssst! BARACK THE SUPREME COURT IS LISTENING!!! UPDATE – DONOFRIO v. WELLS

As I write this, I find it incomprehensible that MSM is virtually silent on the Constitutional crisis that is before us . . . one that could have been easily averted if Mr. Obama had simply produced the records that prove that he is a natural born citizen as described in Article II Section 1of the Constitution.

But he hasn’t and the only logical conclusion one can reach is Obama can’t prove he meets the eligibility requirements for president as determined by the Framers of the Constitution. We all know that and so too the Obamabots. I remain incredulous that citizens should be forced to the take the extreme action of filing suit in order to obtain such basic information.

Why would Obama fail to comply with basic requests that include his school records etc? Possibly as, Dr. Kate wrote a few days on TD Blog, it’s because his sealed records, including college financial aid applications, papers, and coursework, and his financial aid applications (would) reveal his foreign status.

[…] I believe his Columbia and Harvard papers could reveal his examination of the “weaknesses” of the U.S. Constitution and ways to “remedy” them using “administrative procedures” as discussed in this 2001 radio interview.

Think it’s possible that the shuck ‘ jive routine about Obama’s thesis is because it concentrated on topics like naturalized, natural born, or dual citizenship as regards the eligibility for POTUS? And before anyone writes to tell me his thesis at Columbia was on nuclear negotiations with the Soviets . . . don’t. Copies of Michelle’s thesis from Princeton are available on line, but not Barack’s. Curious don’t you think? No one can find a single page, a draft, anything that resembles hard copy.

As anyone who has been following this knows, Obama, the DNC, and his teams of lawyers have ignored all requests to present these documents . . . documents that would be requested of anyone seeking the highest office in the land. And so, with the January inauguration around the corner we now have a case resting in front of the Supremes. If the Justices of the Supreme Court agree to hear this case, I cannot help but wonder what kind of shock wave is going to go through this country.

I have this picture in my mind of all those people on the Titantic, sailing in that sea of icebergs, about to hit one head on . . . clueless about the tragedy ahead of them. The Captain of the ship who was aware … ignored the warnings. Along side of these visions I keep thinking about the MSM, aware of the consequences if Obama is found to be ineligible, ignoring the warnings. Possibly hoping like the Captain of the Titanic, that icebergs could be averted?

The Donofrio v Wells lawsuit is the only one that is not anchored to Obama’s birth certificate, instead focusing on the fact that Obama held dual citizenship at birth. This case does not face the same challenges regarding “standing” that the long list of other lawsuits face. For this reason alone, it has (IMHO) the best chance of succeeding. What has happened since Monday and as detailed on a new site I recommend to anyone looking for more in-depth coverage is that:

the United States Supreme Court scheduled the case – Leo C. Donofrio v. Nina Mitchell Wells, Secretary of State of the State of New Jersey – US Supreme Court Docket No. 08A407 – for a conference of the nine Justices. The conference is a completely private affair and the public may not attend. If four of the nine Justices vote to hear the case in full, oral argument may be scheduled. The conference is scheduled for December 5, 2008, ten days before the meeting of the Electoral College.

According to Attorney Donofrio:

US SUPREME COURT TAKES EXTRAORDINARY EXPEDITED ACTION IN FAST TRACKING NJ CITIZEN SUIT CHALLENGING ’08 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION.

I am awaiting clarification from the Clerk’s office at the United States Supreme Court as to whether my stay application has now been accepted in lieu of a more formal full petition for certiorari (and/or mandamus or prohibition). Such a transformation is a rare and significant emergency procedure. It was used in Bush v. Gore, a case I have relied on in my brief.

We do know the case has certainly been “DISTRIBUTED for Conference“, a process usually reserved for full petitions of certiorari. Stays are usually dealt with in a different manner. As to a stay application, a single Justice may; a) deny the stay; b) grant the stay; c) refer the stay to the full Court.

If you haven’t looked at the CONSTITUTION, Bill of Rights, and the other key documents that form our democracy in a very long time, please visit The Charters of Freedom.charters_doc_image_821 It is a great site to visit and I highly recommend that people that want to comment on the merits of the Donofrio suit may want to visit before posting their comments.

PROOF – OBAMA’S ACKNOWLEDGED DUAL CITIZENSHIP MEANS NEVER ELIGIBLE TO BE POTUS – INFO ALWAYS IN PLAIN SIGHT

Well here we are boys ‘n girls, coming full circle to where we were in August 9th when I first queried about Obama’s dual citizenship; fully acknowledged on his own website.

My question, a the time was, “can a person with dual citizenship run for the office of POTUS?” The question arose because of post on the Rocky Mountain News website, that briefly alluded to Obama’s dual citizenship. At the time I was not familiar with the relevant part of the Constitution that reads:

Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5 of the Constitution of the United States:

“No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.”

The numerous lawsuits (at least 8 in various states) that have been filed challenging Obama’s eligibility to run and serve as President have changed that. It wasn’t until tonight, however, that the importance of my August question became clear. Thanks to Leo Donofrio, for finally putting all of the pieces in place . It finally makes sense.

Mr. Donofrio, who, on Monday, November 17 he will renew his application for an Emergency Stay of the ’08 election in the Supreme Court, refers to the same Rocky Mountain News piece, as does FactCheck.Org in its attempt to “clarify Obama’s citizenship. His blog, Natural Born Citizen, which is tracking his legal moves in this critical Constitutional case said this evening:

Obama admits he was a British Citizen at birth and therefore, just like the Framers, he was not a “natural born citizen” of the United States

The Framers distinguised between”natural born Citizens” and all other “Citizens”. And that’s why it’s important to note the 14th Amendment only confers the title of “Citizen”, not “natural born Citizen”. The Framers were Citizens, but they weren’t natural born Citizens. They put the stigma of not being natural born Citizens on themselves by law.

[…]

The Framers were not natural born citizens because, “at birth” they were all British citizens. That’s why they included a grandfather clause in Article 2, Section 1. The Framers wanted to make themselves eligible to be President, but they didn’t want future generations to be Governed by a Commander In Chief who had split loyalty to another Country. They recognized that they were NOT “Natural Born Citizens”, because “at birth” they were subject to the British Crown as was Barack Obama.

The Framers were not comfortable with the possibility of future generations of Presidents being born under the jurisdiction of Foreign Powers. The Framers declared themselves not eligible to be President as “Natural Born Citizens” so they wrote the grandfather clause in for a limited exception.

Nobody alive today can claim eligibility to be President under the grandfather clause since nobody alive today was a citizen of the US at the time the Constitution was adopted.

Note, Article 2, Section 1 of our Constitution does not allow for dual citizenship, in fact, the Framers of our Constitution went out of their way to make sure that no person serving as President of these United States would have to suffer conflicting loyalties to more than one country. It has already been suggested that Barack has demonstrated divided loyalties because of his association with Raila Odinga in Kenya.

Why this is important; according to Fact Check, Obama was both a British Citizen and U.S. citizen, thereby making him ineligible to be POTUS. Quoting directly from the site:

When Barack Obama Jr. was born on Aug. 4,1961, in Honolulu, Kenya was a British colony, still part of the United Kingdom’s dwindling empire. As a Kenyan native, Barack Obama Sr. was a British subject whose citizenship status was governed by The British Nationality Act of 1948. That same act governed the status of Obama Sr.’s children:

British Nationality Act of 1948 (Part II, Section 5): Subject to the provisions of this section, a person born after the commencement of this Act shall be a citizen of the United Kingdom and Colonies by descent if his father is a citizen of the United Kingdom and Colonies at the time of the birth.
In other words, at the time of his birth, Barack Obama Jr. was both a U.S. citizen (by virtue of being born in Hawaii) and a citizen of the United Kingdom and Colonies (or the UKC) by virtue of being born to a father who was a citizen of the UKC.

Here’s the bottom line, regardless what the vault copy of Obama’s birth certificate reads, when he was born he was both a British Citizen and U.S. citizen.

He does not meet the requirement of having been born a natural born citizen of this country and it was always in plain sight!

OBAMABOT CHALLENGE #2 – USING LOGIC DEFEND OBAMA’S REFUSAL TO PRODUCE RELEVANT DOCUMENTS PROVING HIS CITIZENSHIP

Two days ago, I issued a challenge to the Obamabots. Prove that those of us who are fighting so hard to get Obama to release the vault copy of his birth certificate which would prove he is eligible to run as POTUS, are wrong.

Even on the surface of this challenge, one would think that the Kool-Aid kids would want to silence the criticism with the truth once and for all. The truth being, that Obama needs to release the vault copy of his birth certificate, his health records, his college transcripts, college thesis, and all relevant documents pertaining to his background. It isn’t as if this is new hurdle for Obama to jump or that he has somehow been singled out. THIS IS BASIC!

Not surprisingly, all I received were predictable responses from the Obamabots . . . every one diverting attention from the central issue. Think about how outrageous it is that American citizens have been forced to file suit in order to get Obama and the DNC to provide verification that he is indeed a citizen of the U.S. How tough is this… really!

So today, here is the new challenge. Using logic, defend Obama’s refusal to provide America and its citizens with this information. To start you off, please refer to the post originally found in the comments section over at America’s Right. It is written by Dr. Coambs who studies human reasoning and logic. Read the entire article . . . I will know if you cheated and only skimmed it.

Dr. Coambs challenges all of us to use deductive reasoning or syllogism to determine Obama’s eligibility to be POTUS. The complete post can also be found here at News & Commentary for Thinking People.

He says, in part, that Obama is disqualified as POTUS bt virtue of the following deductive reasoning:

Major Premise: To be POTUS, the candidate’s eligibility must be publicly known.
Minor Premise: Obama’s eligibility is not publicly known.
Conclusion: Therefore Obama is not POTUS.

(6) How Categorical Syllogisms work

When we learn logic in school the categorical syllogism is often taught like this. It begins with a Major Premise, like this:
All humans are mortal.
Then one introduces a second, or Minor Premise, like this:
Socrates is human.
Then we combine the major and minor premises to get this Conclusion:
Therefore, Socrates is mortal.

This method of deductive logic is more than 2000 years old and is taught in almost every introductory logic course in the world. According to these rules of deductive logic, as described by Aristotle (Prior Analytics, 24b18–20) if both premises are true, then the conclusion is true.

Logic is a branch of mathematics, and these rules are like those of arithmetic, where 2+2=4. The result is not negotiable. It is not subject to debate. These rules are universal, they apply everywhere in the known universe. At any time or place one can imagine, 2+2 will equal 4.

Just like arithmetic, the rules of deductive logic are not time-dependent and can be articulated at any time and place in the Universe. If we were to stand on the surface of Mars, then 2+2 would equal 4, and the syllogism above would also be true. If we were traveling at nearly the speed of light, these rules would be true. If all humans disappeared from existence, and only one computer remained, then it could calculate that 2+2=4, and it would be correct. If the computer disappeared, and there were no sentient beings left, and no computational devices, then still, 2+2=4. The syllogism would also be true. These rules are not the inventions of man, they are the rules of nature, and of the Universe.

The simple rules of arithmetic and deductive logic transcend space, time, matter, and energy. There is no point in trying to refute a categorical syllogism in which both premises are true. The conclusion must be true.

The conclusion of this syllogism is self-evident, because it merely requires the combination of two correct premises to produce a correct conclusion.

Here’s my syllogism, however inelegantly drawn:

Major Premise: All candidates for POTUS must be able to prove that they are eligible to run for this office and meet the requirements, as spelled out in Article 2, Section 1 of the Constitution. These requirements include conclusive proof of having been born a natural citizen of the United States.

Minor Premise: Mr. Obama has steadfastly refused to provide documents that prove he meets citizenship requirements.

Conclusion: Mr. Obama cannot prove he is a natural born citizen and that is why he has not produced these documents, and further, he is therefore ineligible to serve as POTUS.

Note to the Obamabots. I look forward to your comments, but do not send me the usual drivel.

This post is for thoughtful responses ONLY. I will toss out comments that show a lack of intelligence or insight . . . i.e. “ha, ha he won OR adjust the tin foil on your head’ GO IMMEDIATELY TO THE CYBERSPACE DUMPSTER!

OBAMA CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS – MUST READ UPDATE – 69 DAYS & COUNTING

I said yesterday that this is not going away.

Please go directly to Natural Born Citizen and read about the law suit currently pending in front of the Supreme Court (Justice Souter) as it relates to Obama’s eligibility to have run for the office of POTUS and to hold that same position.

supreme-court

As discussed yesterday the suit was brought by Leo Donofrio, a retired attorney. In the suit he has sued Nina Mitchell Wells, Secretary of State of the State of New Jersey, in the Superior Court of New Jersey demanding that as the Secretary of State that she execute her statutory and Constitutional duties to police the security of ballots in New Jersey from fraudulent candidates ineligible to hold the office of President of the United States due to their not being “natural born citizens” as enumerated in Article 2, Section 1, of the US Constitution.

Mr. Donofrio’s post on his blog goes into great detail about the law suit he has filed and discusses a post on another blog by Jeff Schreiber, a legal writer and law student. If you have never visited Jeff’s blog, America’s Right, you would not know the following.

I have never met Jeff, but have found myself drawn to his blog because his writing (in my estimation) is fairly balanced as he tries to help those of us who are not attorneys make sense of this legal mess.

I cannot comment on the legal merits on either side, however, I can say thank God we have people in this country like Leo Donofrio and Jeff Schreiber who are working so hard to insure our Constitution is upheld.
