Eligibility Dispute is Serious

The Obama File has several posts of interest regarding the question that seeks to answer Obama's eligibility under the U. S. Constitution's Article II, Section 1's "natural born" requirements.

How can a self-admitted British subject and citizen of Kenya ever be considered a "natural born" American citizen?

Despite the fact that this radio station titles their post with the incorrect question: KTBB's Question of the Day: Is There Enough Proof President Obama is a U.S. citizen? the comment section (347 comments and counting!) is filled with CORRECT QUESTIONS regarding this vital issue.

Eligibility Dispute Is Serious

A judge hearing one of the cases challenging Barack Obama's eligibility to be president has taken the unusual step of describing the dispute as a serious constitutional issue and further has begun adding letters of comment from the public to the court record.

Word of the action by U.S. Magistrate Judge Joel Schneider in Camden, N.J., comes from attorney Mario Apuzzo, who is handling the Kerchner vs. Obama case, which Apuzzo filed in January on behalf of Charles F. Kerchner Jr., Lowell T. Patterson, Darrell James Lenormand and Donald H. Nelson Jr.

Named as defendants are Barack Hussein Obama II, the U.S., Congress, the Senate, House of Representatives and former Vice President Dick Cheney along with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

The case focuses on the alleged failure in Congress to follow the Constitution. That document, the lawsuit states, "provides that Congress must fully qualify the candidate 'elected' by the Electoral College Electors."

The Constitution provides, the lawsuit said, "If the president-elect shall have failed to qualify, then the vice president elect shall act as president until a president shall have qualified."

"There existed significant public doubt and grievances from plaintiffs and other concerned Americans regarding Obama's eligibility to be president and defendants had the sworn duty to protect and preserve the Constitution and specifically under the 20th Amendment, Section 3, a Constitutional obligation to confirm whether Obama, once the electors elected him, was qualified," the case explained. "

Congress is the elected representative of the American people and the people speak and act through them," the lawsuit said.

The defendants "violated" the 20th Amendment by failing to assure that Obama meets the eligibility requirements," the lawsuit said.

I had previously read (I believe it was at The Obama File) that the defendants (who have postponed presenting their evidence several times already) have a new deadline on June 29th. We shall see what happens.
