Obama Case at Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals

May 2, after a two-year battle, a lawsuit challenging Obama’s eligibility to be President will finally be considered by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. Originally filed in 2008, the case has slowly been working its way through the federal court system.


Over 100 cases have been filed challenging Obama’s eligibility to be President under the Constitution’s requirement that the President must be a “natural born” citizen. Most have been dismissed for “lack of standing,” meaning the plaintiffs had suffered no injury, and no lawsuit has yet been tried on the merits of the case. Obama has spent an estimated $2 million keeping these lawsuits from coming to trial.

However, the case coming up before the Ninth Circuit includes former ambassador and presidential candidate Alan Keyes, 10 state representatives and 30 members of the U.S. military, plus it has been joined with another lawsuit that includes Wiley S. Drake, a vice-presidential candidate in 2008. It may make it difficult for the court to dismiss this case for lack of standing when the plaintiffs include a 2008 presidential candidate and a vice-presidential candidate.

Obama’s lawyers and governmental lawyers have tried various tactics over the past two-plus years to avoid having an eligibility case heard in court going so far as to insist that the constitutional issue is not within the jurisdiction of the courts but is a political issue which only the Congress can deal with.

So far Obama has succeeded in refusing to show his long form birth certificate or any other documents the lawsuits have asked to see, including school records, college records, law school records, passport information, etc. Questions about his eligibility arose some two years ago before the election because it is well known that his father was a British subject from Kenya and his grandmother said she attended his birth in Kenya. It is also suspected that while in college he traveled to a restricted country on a foreign passport. More recently, questions have arisen about his Social Security card as there is no record the card was officially issued and the card number indicates it came from Connecticut, where Obama has never resided. 


Perhaps this time the court will actually hear the case and judge on the merits of the case. If discovery is granted, the first thing that will be requested will be Obama’s elusive long form birth certificate. It remains a mystery why he hasn’t simply shown it and ended the speculation and the lawsuits. This might finally be the case that settles the issue.

    The Vegas Oddsmaker currently have the odds at $5,000,000 to 1 odds that the 9th Circus will allow for discovery to actually take place. If they announce that they will allow it, every Judge that favors that decision will be confronted by the same clowns that got to Judge Carter after he announced he was going to allow the plaintiffs to view Husseins’ documentation. They will then come back a month later and announce they changed their minds.
