9th Circuit Court of Appeals Dismisses Obama Suit

Right before Christmas, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco finally released its ruling on the lawsuits challenging Obama’s eligibility to be president under the requirements of the U.S. Constitution. The Court dismissed the cases and refused discovery basically saying that whereas the plantiffs might have “competitive standing” to sue, Obama’s  inauguration wiped out any claims the plaintiffs had about the election being unfair. In other words, this ruling means that once he took office, it’s too late to challenge the election whether there was fraud or not.

The plaintiffs in these cases included two 2008 presidential candidates, Alan Keyes and Gail Lightfoot, and one vice presidential candidate, Wiley S. Drake, plus other officials and interested parties. The judges stated in their surprising opinion that once Obama was sworn in the plaintiffs were no longer candidates, therefore their claims to an unfair election disappeared with the administration of the oath of office since the lawsuit was filed hours later, meaning too late.

Currently, the attorneys for the plaintiffs are weighing their next move, though attorney Orly Taitz has vowed to fight on until all avenues are exhausted and justice is done. So far no court in the country has agreed to hear the case on its merits and most have dismissed the dozens of cases brought forth on various technicalities, usually on the question of standing, though the Ninth Circuit may have put a crack in that claim.

It is well known that Obama’s father was a British subject from Kenya and that the U.S. Contitution does not allow dual citizenship for the office of president. A president must be a “natural born” citizen meaning both parents must be U.S. citizens. Sooner or later the Court will have to rule on the constitutionality of Obama’s presidency, hopefully before the next election.
