Supreme Court Justice Souter: Obama must present to the Court an authentic birth certificate by Dec 1 [Update: Or maybe not]

November 7, 2008

Wow You could of knocked me over with a feather. Extremely anxious to see how this pans out.


If The Supreme Court Decides…?

At this point, Supreme Court Justice David Souter’s Clerk informed Philip J. Berg, the lawyer who brought the case against Obama, that his petition for an injunction to stay the November 4th election was denied, but the Clerk also required the defendants to respond to the Writ of Certiorari (which requires the concurrence of four Justices) by December 1. At that time, Mr. Obama must present to the Court an authentic birth certificate, after which Mr. Berg will respond.

If Obama fails to do that, it is sure to inspire the skepticism of the Justices, who are unaccustomed to being defied. They will have to decide what to do about a president-elect who refuses to prove his natural-born citizenship.

“I can see a unanimous Court (en banc) decertifying the election if Obama refuses to produce his birth certificate,” says Raymond S. Kraft, an attorney and writer. “They cannot do otherwise without abandoning all credibility as guardians of the Constitution. Even the most liberal justices, however loathe they may to do this, still consider themselves guardians of the Constitution. The Court is very jealous of its power – even over presidents, even over presidents-elect.”

Also remember that on December 13, the Electoral College meets to casts its votes. If it has been determined that Mr. Obama is an illegal alien and therefore ineligible to become President of the United States, the Electors will be duty-bound to honor the Constitution.

    WOW, this is HUGE! He better produce it, because they can’t prevent President Obama, there would be world wide riots. We will disagree with him every time we feel he’s making or made a BAD move.

    BUT we WILL NEVER call Obama worse than Hitler (and certainly not McChimpy), or side with terrorists, dictators and ‘enemy’ countries over OUR President.

    Conservatives must try to influence the President with sensible debate and persuasion. The main reason the Left is so vicious is because the so-called ‘Progressive’ ideology is bankrupt at its core, and deep, deep, deep down where logic and rational thoughts dwell, I think they know it.

    I want to believe that Obama won’t be as bad as some people think, but I’m quite sure, that at best, he won’t be as good as most people hope he will be.

    I wish this site had come out earlier, I had some Obamabot friends finding out that they had big differences with Obama’s positions:

    Years ago I was knocked off the voting rolls here in this very Blue City when I was a Republican, on election day I found out I was knocked off as an Un-Affiliated. Next time I should register as a Democrat, maybe I won’t get knocked off then.

    The biggest dangers come from the Left anyway, so my votes in this Blue State’s closed primaries would be more important there.

    Telling Moonbats I’m a Democrat would stop some in their tracks too, maybe making it easier to chip away at the false veneer of so-called ‘progressivism’.

    Let’s hope he does well, at least not too badly, with the least amount of despair possible. May God Bless and help guide President Obama. And may God Bless and help save America! Keep the faith!

    Im not sure this is true. I’m pretty sure the court would have to accept the Writ of Certiorari (request for judicial review) before hearing arguments or looking at evidence.

    Even then id think they only make a decision on standing, and then if Berg succeeds throw it back to the lower court, and have it look at the evidence.The Judicial system is not exactly efficient.

    If this doesn’t happen before the electoral college meets on Dec 13th then McCain will obviously not receive 270 electoral votes. If for some reason Obama was disqualified after this point I’m pretty sure it would go to the house like in 1824, as the constitution mandates if nobody has an electoral vote plurality. I don’t think it’s within the court’s power to decertify the election altogether.

    USpace I wish I had known about the test before the election too. Believe me!
    I took it just for kicks.
    My results

    You DISAGREED with the Barack Obama position on 48 of the 48 test questions. This means you disagree with the Obama position 100% of the time.

    I hope this will help you make an informed decision on Election Day!

    I suppose in a round about way. 😉

    Any candidate for the office of POTUS should have to prove his Constitutional qualifications. Why hasn’t BHO?

    McCain, when challenged, produced the necessary information.

    If Obama is a fraud, and I believe he is, the cost to this country will be great as the integrity of our elections are once again in question. It baffles me that you need a BC for everything from driving a car to getting a passport to getting a job (it’s one of the requested documents that you have a choice to present). Yet, you don’t have to show documentation when registering as a candidate for the Presidency? Unbelievable!
