Supreme Court Denies Eligibility Challenge

The U.S. Supreme Court has denied the petition challenging Obama’s eligibility to be president under Article 2, Section 1, of the U.S. Constitution. The Court’s statement was terse and without explanation:  “The petition for a writ of certiorari is denied.”

In the past, courts have been avoiding the numerous lawsuits filed against Obama by saying that the plaintiffs have lacked “standing,” roughly meaning they have not suffered loss or injury and therefore have no legal grounds to sue.

The Court did not comment on its decision, but the petition had asked that justices Sotomayor and Kagan recuse themselves from the consideration of the petition because they could have a personal stake in the outcome of any court decision since Obama appointed them. Neither recused herself, which changed the vote needed for approval.

This might effectively stop the Kerchner et. al. vs Obama et. al. case, but it will not stop the issue that has been raised by having a president who seemingly does not meet the requirement of being a “natural born” citizen as the Constitution demands. Some States are already preparing laws that will demand that presidential candidates prove they are “natural born” citizens by producing their long form birth certificate and other such documentation, the very documentation Obama has steadfastly refused to show the public, the Congress, or the courts.

Another case, Barnett v. Obama, currently before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, might be more difficult to stop by claiming lack of standing since Alan Keyes, former U. S. Ambassador to the U.N. is one of the plaintiffs and he was a presidential candidate in 2008. And so it goes, until the truth is told.
