Americans Cannot Challenge Obama in Court

In a brief filed with the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, U.S. Attorneys have made the startling claim that the American people cannot challenge Obama’s eligibility to be President.  The U.S. Attorneys are attempting to convince the court not to hear various lawsuits that have questioned whether or not Obama is a “natural born citizen” under Article 2, Section 1, of the U.S. Constitution.

In addition, the U.S. Attorneys make the incredulous claim that even if there is a constitutional question, it is a political issue not a judicial one. In their brief they say that it is a matter for Congress not the courts, and the American people have no standing to challenge Obama’s eligibility.

The majority of the lawsuits filed against Obama are asking that he at least produce his official long form birth certificate to prove he is a “natural born citizen” since it is well known that his father was a Kenyan and a British citizen. Obama has steadfastly refused to show his documents, without explanation, and has spent an estimated $1.7 million to keep his records from the public.  

The U.S. Attorneys also pointed out that previously the district court had ruled in part that to accept the case would be “a great intrusion by the court into the political life of the other branches.” Now it is up to the 9th Circuit Court to decide if the Constitution is merely a political issue and if the people have the right to know the truth or not.
