Supreme Court Could Remove Obama from Office

February 25, 2010

Gary Kreep, attorney for the United States Justice Foundation, who is involved in several cases challenging Obama’s eligibility to hold the office of President of the United States, has said that he believes there is legal precedent for Obama to be removed from office if he is found to be ineligible for not being a “natural born” citizen as required by the Constitution.

U.S. Supreme Court

Kreep cites several federal laws that would apply to Obama and which are felonies that carry substantial penalties as well. According to an USJF analysis reported in an article by Bob Unruh of WND they would include:

1) Falsely assuming or pretending to be an official or employee of the United States (18 U.S.C. § 912).

2) Conspiracy to Commit Offense or to Defraud United States (18 U.S.C. 371).

3) Activities Affecting Armed Forces During War (18 U.S.C. 2388(a)).

4) False Statement in Application and Use of Passport (18 U.S.C. 1542).

5)  False Personation of Citizen of the United States (18 U.S.C. 911).

6)  Perjury (18 U.S.C. 1621).

If Obama proves to be ineligible to be President because he is not a “natural born” citizen of the United States, he could be charged with all or any of these felonies. Until his official birth certificate is shown in court his eligibility remains in doubt as he has absolutely refused to allow the document to be seen.

U. S. Appeals Court Listening to Obama Lawsuit

February 25, 2010

The 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has accepted a brief challenging Obama’s eligibility to be President of the United States.  Attorney Mario Apuzzo has filed a lawsuit on behave of his clients that claims Obama is not a “natural born” citizen as required by Article 2, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution.

The lawsuit is also suing the Congress claiming that Congress did not follow the Constitution and “fully qualify the candidate elected,” as must be done for presidential candidates.

Questions about Obama’s eligibility have arisen because it is known that his father was a British citizen and his own grandmother claims she attended Obama’s birth — in Kenya.  

Additionally, since the controversy arose, Obama has steadfastly refused to provide his official birth certificate. His campaign posted a similar document, but it is not an official birth certificate and is available in Hawaii whether the person was born in the state or elsewhere. Complicating the issue, a forensic analysis of the document showed it had been photoshopped; it appears to be a fraud.

Multiple lawsuits have been filed questioning Obama’s eligibility and instead of simply providing his official birth certificate (for a cost of about $15), he has spent an estimated $1.7 million hiring law firms to keep his birth certificate and other documents secret and out of public view. A reasonable person would wonder why. Eventually, the courts will have to decide.

Candidate Demands Obama Birth Certificate

February 11, 2010

Congressional candidate Miki Booth is demanding to see Obama’s long form birth certificate. At a recent political event she showed the crowd copies of her husband’s and her son’s long form birth certificates from Kapi’olani Medical Center in Hawaii, the same hospital Obama claims to have been born at. However, the certificate Obama posted online looks nothing like the official birth certificates shown by Ms. Booth.

It is immediately noticeable that the official birth certificate (above) has a great deal more information, such as name of the doctor, various addresses, signatures, etc., all of which do not appear on what Obama posted (see below).  Independent forensic analysis has said Obama’s document is fake.

Ms. Booth is running for the U.S. House of Representatives in Oklahoma’s second district. She characterizes herself as an independent constitutional conservative. 

Despite  Ms. Booth’s insistence and numerous lawsuits, Obama has steadfastly refused to show his long form birth certificate, and many suspect he does not have one (at least not from Hawaii), especially since his own grandmother claims to have attended his birth–in Kenya. However, given Obama’s continuing refusal to show the public his records, eventually, the courts will have to decide if he must produce his birth certificate.

More U.S. Officials Question Obama’s Eligibility

February 5, 2010

The list of governmental officials and lawmakers who question Obama’s eligibility to be President continues to grow. For the past two years Obama has steadfastly refused to release his long form birth certificate or other pertinent documents, such as his passport, school and college records, etc.

Obama's Indonesian School Record

The U.S. Constitution requires that the President be a “natural born” citizen in Article 2, Section1. Dual citizenship is specifically not allowed. Since it is known that Obama’s father was a British subject, and later his step-father moved the family to Indonesia where Obama was enrolled in school as an Indonesian citizen, and his own grandmother claims she attended his birth, in Kenya, legitimate questions about his eligibility continue.

Obama has given no explanation why he has hidden all of these documents from the public or why he insists they be kept secret. Currently various lawsuits are winding their way through the courts regarding Obama’s eligibility. Eventually, the court will have to decide whether Obama has to release his documents or not and whether he is eligible to be President or not. He has refused to cooperate or explain.

Happy Groundhog Day — 10,001 Milestone Today

Groundhog Day has just passed and coinciding with this momentous holiday the Nightwatch blog has passed the 10,000 hits milestone, officially reaching 10,001 as the day ended. Thanks to all of you who have stopped by to take a look these past many months.

Hopefully, by this time next year, this blog can concentrate on topics of a different and broader nature, as it was originally intended to do.

Obama Lawsuit Cites Precedents for Removing Ineligible Candidates or Governmental Officials

February 2, 2010

A lawsuit filed in California cites legal precedents for removing candidates or governmental officials from office when they’ve been deemed ineligible. In the ongoing legal battles challenging Obama’s eligibility to be President under the rules of the Constitution, courts have been reluctant to take on the issue citing lack of jurisdiction or questioning the court’s authority to remove an elected official.

However, attorney Gary Kreep’s case points to two precedents. Eldridge Cleaver was declared an ineligible Presidential candidate for failing to meet the Constitutional requirements and removed from the ballot in California in 1968. The Supreme Court upheld the decision. In North Dakota, Thomas Moodie was elected governor, then removed from office by court order when it was determined he was ineligible to be governor under state law. The court upheld the ruling.

Obama’s eligibility remains an issue because his father was a British subject and his own grandmother claims she attended his birth — in Kenya. Either would make him ineligible to be President, and since Obama has steadfastly refused to produce his long-form birth certificate or other documentation, the court will eventually have to rule on his eligibility.
