Article on Eligibility Cases makes Drudge Report and More, Press Conference to be Held at National Press Club on Monday

This morning and into the day, as many of you have pointed out, Matt Drudge gave a prominent spot on his Drudge Report site to a Chicago Tribune piece, published by the Houston Chronicle, questioning whether the U.S. Supreme Court will hear Leo Donofrio’s presidential eligibility-related case. Tomorrow, the Justices will address whether or not to hear the case in their typical weekly conference.

Also, in a piece in today’s Washington Times, reporter Tom Ramstack stated, in his lead, that “[t]he Supreme Court plans to decide Friday whether to hear a case that could determine whether President-elect Barack Obama ever becomes the nation’s full-fledged president.” Furthermore, from the tinny sounds of a radio in the Record Room at City Hall here in Philadelphia, I even heard a few seconds about the case during a top-of-the-hour news-break.

However, the Chicago Tribune/Houston Chronicle article linked to by the Drudge Report incorrectly states that the Court declined to hear Philip Berg’s case against Obama, first filed here in Philadelphia on August 21, 2008. In fact, Berg’s case is still active, a motion for emergency injunction was filed yesterday, and my sources in Berg’s office and in the Court tell me that it, too, will likely be scheduled for the routine conference within a week to ten days. With any luck, even if the media attention on Donofrio’s case fades, Berg’s will once again garner some attention.

While Berg offered no comment as to the time-line on his own case, he told America’s Right this afternoon that he, too, is anxiously awaiting the outcome of tomorrow’s Supreme Court decision on whether to hear Donofrio’s case, and that his staff has sent notice of the needed correction to the proper people at the Chicago Tribune and beyond.

This is the second time that the eligibility-related actions have made the Drudge Report, the first time being when Berg’s case was dismissed from district court in Philadelphia. I have been surprised, but have grown numb to, the absence of the mainstream press from this matter. For me, these cases go far beyond the matters of Barack Obama’s documentation and childhood — these efforts transcend the political candidate and his past and seem to encapsulate so many different issues prevalent in the political landscape of this nation during and in the wake of this year’s historic presidential election.

Most prevalent among those underlying issues is media bias, with no better demonstration than how the New York Times first inquired into Sen. John McCain’s birth in the Panama Canal Zone on February 28, 2008, yet somehow forgot to present similar questions to any other candidate. In that article, the Times noted that McCain’s birth outside the continental United States once again highlighted “a musty debate that has surfaced periodically since the founders first set quill to parchment and declared that only a ‘natural-born citizen’ can hold the nation’s highest office.”

Mr. McCain’s situation is different from those of the current governors of California and Michigan, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jennifer M. Granholm, who were born in other countries and were first citizens of those nations, rendering them naturalized Americans ineligible under current interpretations. The conflict that could conceivably ensnare Mr. McCain goes more to the interpretation of “natural born” when weighed against intent and decades of immigration law.

Yet, since McCain provided his documentation, the so-called “musty debate” was apparently over, despite several unanswered questions regarding McCain’s eventual opponents’ birth and childhood. Had these questions continued in perpetuity about McCain, or about any other GOP candidate, the media would be devoting its time and energy, non-stop, to fleshing out the truth.

Another underlying issue-in-chief is how these cases expose the difference in the interpretation of our Constitution among those on the political left and political right in this country. On so many left-leaning Web sites, when the topic of Barack Obama’s eligibility arises, there is inevitably an onslaught of “who cares”-type comments, people who feel that the Constitution–or at least Article II, Section 1–has worn out its welcome in the United States of America. Yet, on the right, and especially among people like myself, the issue at the heart of the cases filed by Philip Berg, Leo Donofrio and Alan Keyes is not so much Barack Obama himself, but the office he hopes to hold and the constitutional requirements to do so. The language of the pleadings and even the veracity of the claims are drowned out, for many, by the glaring failure to even acknowledge the Constitution, nonetheless enforce it.

Tomorrow is a big day for America. The American public deserves to know that their leader is qualified and eligible to be in that ultimate position of leadership. So far, I’ll be the first to admit that Barack Obama, in his non-office and with his non-authority as not-yet-president-elect, has indeed been more pragmatic than I originally thought, likely driven to that pragmatism not by his own intentions or ideology, but rather dragged there by the shackles of extrinsic evidence with regard to the current global climate and domestic struggles. Still, regardless of his approach to the presidency, he should nonetheless be obligated to show that he is eligible to be there in the first place.


UPDATE, 5:00pm:

This, from The Wall Street Journal’s MarketWatch Web site:

Mr. Obama’s Eligibility to be Aired Monday at the National Press Club
FROM: WSJ MarketWatch

QUEENSBURY, N.Y., Dec 04, 2008 — On Monday, December 8, 2008, at 1:30 pm, the We The People Foundation will conduct a press conference at the National Press Club in Washington D.C.

The licensed attorneys who initiated lawsuits in PA (Philip Berg), NJ (Leo Donofrio) and CA (Orly Taitz), challenging Mr. Obama’s legal eligibility to hold the Office of President of the United States, will briefly summarize the facts, legal arguments and status of their cases. They will answer questions from the press.

Prior to the start of the conference, at 10 am, the Supreme Court of the United States is expected to announce whether it will consider applications from these attorneys who have asked the Court to delay the proceedings of the Electoral College pending a determination of the underlying constitutional question – the meaning of the “natural born citizen” clause of Article II of the Constitution and its application to Mr. Obama.

Robert Schulz will briefly discuss Mr. Obama’s response to the publication of his Open Letter in the Chicago Tribune on Monday and Wednesday of this week. For the reasons given in the Open Letter, Schulz asked Mr. Obama to: (1) immediately authorize Hawaiian officials to provide a team of forensic scientists access to his original (“vault”) birth certificate and (2) arrange for the delivery of other documents needed to conclusively establish Obama’s citizenship status. Mr. Schulz will answer questions from the press.

“Under our Constitution, no one is eligible to assume the Office of the President unless he or she is a ‘natural born citizen,’” said Bob Schulz, Chairman of the Foundation. “To date, Mr. Obama has refused all requests to release his original birth certificate or other documents that would definitively establish his citizenship status and thus his constitutional eligibility.”

The Open Letter to Mr. Obama summarizes the evidence against Mr. Obama and the adverse consequences that would befall the Nation should he assume the Office of the President as a usurper.

“Should the state members of the Electoral College cast their votes for Mr. Obama in the face of such overwhelming evidence, and without verification of Mr. Obama’s eligibility, they would be committing treason to the Constitution,” said Schulz.

Check back later today (or possibly very early tomorrow), as I hope to post a new interview with Berg, during which he talks not only about the status of his own case, but also Donofrio’s case, the Supreme Court, Andy Martin, and more.

    You must have access to the records. HIPPA Federal Law makes access highly unlikely without proper verification.
    I just don’t understand why there are three separate legal firms working to keep Obama’s eligibility under wraps.

    In 1981, when Pakistan was a forbidden travel destination for U.S. citizens carrying U.S. passports, how did Barack Obama II go to Pakistan and return to the U.S.?

    If he used a freshly-renewed Indonesian or other foreign passport, he had to renounce his U.S. citizenship to get it. That makes him an illegal alien.

    Get it?

    I think that the hospital issue is very interesting…and it goes along with an idea that I have had for a while. Has anyone looked for hospital records for that time frame in the name of MADELYNE DUNHAM, not Ann Dunham Obama? Even in laid back Hawaii, it would have very difficult for a 40 yr old married woman to give birth to a child that was OBVIOUSLY NOT her husband’s! What if “Toots” is really BHO’s mother and that is the info that he doesn’t want to come out? It would also explain the last minute trip to Hawaii just before the election…to see his “terribly ill” grandmother (but he waited five days to go) even though her own brother said that she had broken hip but was otherwise okay. Then, the night before the election, she passes away from cancer? (But has no funeral) Has any enterprising journalist looked into whether her condo is on the market…or if perhaps she is still living there, but BHO wanted to make sure that she wouldn’t get the chance to be ambushed by any reporters asking questions, so he faked her death, (with her full knowledge of the plan)? Maybe she is getting rambly in her old age and he was concerned that she would forget the “storyline” and tell the truth about him and contradict the fable we’ve all been fed by his publicists in the MSM. I know it all seems far-fetched but there are SO MANY holes in this guy’s life story that it almost invites people to come up with the most outlandish explanations. Why won’t he just produce the D%#@ long form Certificate!?

    You’re wrong. It was not forbidden for US citizens to travel to Pakistan in 1981. It was simply very difficult.

    A US citizen could then, as one could today, travel to Pakistan by obtaining a tourist visa from Pakistan and use it along with a US Passport. When Obama traveled to Pakistan in 1981, he traveled with a citizen of Pakistan; a friend of Obama’s from college. So it is conceivable that a tourist visa was granted and provided to Obama at the border of Pakistan when Obama visited. The Pakistani friend and family could have cut through the red tape on Obama’s behalf, vouched for him, and taken responsibility for his actions there while visiting.

    Well said, Jeff, that tomorrow is a big day for America.

    I’m sick of hearing the left say that this issue doesn’t matter. How can it not matter if the POTUS has family members who are citizens of other countries? Are we supposed to believe this won’t affect treaties or other matters of state?

    How can they overlook his actions on behalf of Odinga in Kenya two years ago?

    I pray that the Supreme Court will hear this case and decide that natural born means no divided loyalties to other countries.

    Disturbingly absent will be Alan Keyes. His appearance there discussing his lawsuit would remove a lot of the cries of racism after the press conference.

    I don’t know why he is not scheduled to be there but I think it would have been a lot better if he were.

    Alan Keyes Lawsuit: “Obama, Prove You’re A Natural-Born Citizen Before You Take Office”

    Former presidential candidate Alan Keyes (pictured) and other members of the American Independent Party have filed suit in California Superior Court to stop the the California Secretary Of State from giving its 55 electoral votes to President-Elect Barack Obama until documentary evidence is provided that proves he is a natural-born citizen of the United States and thus meets the U.S. constitutional requirement to take office. The certified Electoral College tally occurs next month. The Keyes v. Bowen petition for writ of mandate can be read here.

    You’re wrong. It was not forbidden for US citizens to travel to Pakistan in 1981.
    ———————–
    No, It is you that is wrong.

    Apparently, according to the Obama campaign, In 1981 — the year Obama transferred from Occidental College to Columbia University — Obama visited his mother and sister Maya in Indonesia. After that visit, Obama traveled to Pakistan with a friend from college whose family was from there. The Obama campaign says Obama was in Pakistan for about three weeks, staying with his friend’s family in Karachi and also visiting Hyderabad in Southern India.

    NOW, It all sounds very innocent, “a college trip to Pakistan”.

    Pakistan was in turmoil in 1981 and ruled of martial law. Millions of Afghan refugees were living in Pakistan, while the Afghan Mujahedeen operated from bases inside Pakistan in their war with the Soviets. One of the leaders that based his operation in Quetta, Pakistan was Usama Bin Laden (The Sheik).

    Pakistan was on the banned travel list for US Citizens at the time and all non-Muslim visitors were not welcome unless sponsored by their embassy for official business.

    The would be only a few reasons a young Westerner of the Muslim faith would travel to Pakistan in 1981:

    To Participate in Jihad, which is the duty of every “True Believer”.

    For religious education in a Wahabbi sect, Saudi funded, Madrassa.

    In order to purchase drugs from the drug marketplace.

    Pakistan was not a tourist stop nor the place to hang out with someone’s family in 1981.

    It sure looks like Obama’s people, as far back as early 2006, have looked into the inconvenient U.S. Constitutional requirement for a POTUS to be a “natural born” citizen – a requirement that it increasingly appears he does not meet.

    Just thinking out loud:

    1. When a person applies for a job with the Supreme Court, say, a job as a low-level clerk or as a lawyer, does the person have to provide a long form birth certificate—the one with the doctor’s signature and the name of the birth hospital?

    2. Or, can the job applicant choose not to attach a long form birth certificate at all, but he can do so if he wishes?

    3. Or, can the job applicant tell the Supreme Court personnel director something like this:

    “I don’t want to give you my paper birth certificate for personal reasons, but if you really need to see my birth certificate, you can see it on my website.”

    4. Oh, and what about the job applicant’s college records?

    5. Can the job applicant, say, a lawyer, choose not to release his college records to the personnel director of the U.S. Supreme Court?

    6. Imagine the following scenario:

    He tells the Supreme Court personnel director something like this: “I can’t release my college records to you because of privacy concerns. I’m a little embarrassed about what you might see in those records.

    “I hope that you understand.

    “Of course, if you get a court order telling me to release my college records, I will probably release them after first
    checking out my options with my lawyer.”

    As I said earlier, just thinking out loud.

    I have some questions.

    What happens if Obama is disqualified? I have heard several people opine but I have not heard from someone who actually knows.

    What if Donofrio prevails and Obama and McCain are both declared ineligible.

    I may be wrong but my layman’s interpretation of what I found on Wikipedia seems to indicate that in either case the electors elected on 11/04/08 are then free to vote for whoever they want when they meet. If that is true then since the majority of electors would be Democrats it seems that we would most likely end up with HRC.

    What if disqualification would occur after the Electoral College meets but before inauguration?

    Does anyone know?

    Thanks, Ken

But, Jeff, if you examine the philosophies of many of these appointees they are quite UN backers and surrendering our sovereignty to One World governing. Obama himself keeps emphasizing that we now face problems that must have a world wide input into remedies. And they are filled with pro FOCA people which would make us the most pro abortion country in the world…and you remember that the man even tried to prevent the Born Alive Infant Protection bill. There is still a dangerous agenda that is now taking advantage of the Alinsky chaos manipulation.

    I have a seriously stupid question to ask. What counts as Obama’s official birth certificate, and why is the one that he has released invalid/insufficient? Is it because it was printed last year instead of the one printed in 1961? Does this mean everyone whose parents lose their birth certificate are ineligible to be president? That seems odd to me. We should be able to rely on state records for verification.

    I’ll admit that I’m pro-Obama but I obviously wouldn’t want him to become president if he has lied about this and/or he is ineligible.

    As for anonymous who wrote this: “How can it not matter if the POTUS has family members who are citizens of other countries?”
    The requirements for POTUS are to be a naturally born citizen, 35, and having lived in the US for at least 14 yrs. If you’re born the US, you are a naturally born citizen, period. Doesn’t matter if both of your parents, all of your siblings, etc are non-US citizens. Maybe you still think that matters in terms of your loyalty to the US and all, but that’s what the constitution has to say on the matter.

    There is no question about Obama’s father not being a citizen. The question right now is whether Obama was born in Hawaii or elsewhere.

So I started here on the state level…NC Sec of State who passed me on to the NC Board of Elections who passed me over to their attorney. He explained that they(the NC electorate) do not check a candidates qualifications nor does the RNC but that it should’ve been done by the DNC since he’s their candidate. They assume that if he is a registered voter in the state of Illinois then he’s qualified. Since Obama was an elected official on the state level then whatever background they might have checked there is sufficient…we all know about the Chicago political machine and it’s corruption so I’d bet that there wasn’t much background checking going on there. Last time I checked when I applied for a job they checked every ounce of my background including my credit report and I”m an MRI tech. And this guy doesn’t even have to show a birth certificate or a medical record or college transcripts? What has this country come to? I feel like we’re all just rolling over and playing dead!

    Has anyone stopped to consider that Obama might have a valid birth certificate all along, and is cynically using this issue to discredit as many of his enemies as will take the bait? He just plays games with the courts for as long as he can get away with it. Eventually when, or if, he is legally obliged to produce it by a court order, he just says “sure, here it is” and instantly discredits for life every blogger and activist who took up this cause. It’s a simple tactic and not beyond his hardball approach.

    “Pakistan was on the banned travel list for US Citizens at the time and all non-Muslim visitors were not welcome unless sponsored by their embassy for official business.”

    Support that assertion. On whose banned travel list? The US or Pakistan's? I've heard your assertion expressed many times over the past three months, and I have yet to see it supported by anything other than copy & paste from one blog to the next. Just one big circle of repetition.

    It is known that Obama traveled with a Pakistani citizen and stayed with the friend's family. Military rule or not, an exception could have been made in Obama's case. The Pakistani friend and family could have made it possible. Maybe they didn't, but it is possible that they could have.

    Until Berg, yourself, or others decide to support the Pakistani on the banned list theory, and also provide evidence that Obama used an Indonesian passport, his traveling to Pakistan has alternate explanations other than the outlandish speculation of "Jihad" participation.

    Jeff,

    Do you know why no one representing Alan Keyes’ lawsuit will be at the Monday press conference?

    There can be only one reason why someone would go thru every possible legal & illegal obvuscation of the facts that surround Barack Obama's Birth Certificate. And that is that it has Candidacy Killing information on it!!! Now does it state that BHO was born in Kenya, that could be, as his Sister Maya has a Hawaiin COLB and Everyone knows that she was born in Jakarta, Indonesia, and there are stories of Korean Citizens having COLB's,so the COLB as Proof of Legal Birth is lacking to say the least. So just what does his Vault form BC state, and unless it doesn't exist, there can only be one other damaging fact that can be on it, that would warrant this top secret status it seems to have achieved, and that is that Stanley Anne Dunham Obama, was NOT his MOTHER, But instead his SISTER!!! Which would mean that he is Not the Proud Son of a Kenyan Warrior line, but the Love child of a couple old Swingers in Hawaii, namely Frank Marshall Davis and Madelyn Payne Dunham!

    Yep, this last scenario would fit all the parameters for concealing a birth certificate from the public, (although there is a Mortgage Company in Chicago that does have something he presented as a Birth Certificate when he bought his home), but if he was the offspring of 2 old dead swingers, why continue the deception and obvuscation?

    Hmm,Could it be, that when Anne went to Kenya, that Madelyn went with her to have the baby? Was all this a Ruse to hide a Black baby from Madelyn's New Bank Employers / associates, and palm the kid off on her Daughterm while paying BHO's sr to play along? I bet BHO grew up thinking that BHO sr had abandoned him and the woman who he thought was he mother, until he found his BC in an Old Book, and found out the truth, and it is this reason that he moved back to Hawaii to live with HIS REAL MOM, while still pretending that she was his Grandmother and still be able to grow up around his real dad too.
    No wonder he drank & did drugs! Living a Lie your whole life, and having to each & everyday conceal the truth like some kind of Comic Book Super hero!
    So what do we have here:
    A Hard Working and Brilliant man, who has worked hard at what his has wanted to do, and yet forced to hide such shameful past, and upbringing that was as far from Ossie & Harriet as one could possibly be. And because of a couple of careless Swingers during a Xmas party in 1960, a middle aged woman was forced to have a love child in Kenya, blame it on her daughter, and force a Mulatto child to live a life, completely different from everyone else on the planet!
    Growing up knowing that you were the Xmas Gift of 1960 that no one wanted, and couldn't return!

    I just want to say that both my kids 12 and 7 are born in Maui Hawaii and both of their Birth Certificates look just like Obama’s. And if you call Maui Mermorial Hospital they will not tell you if they were born there.It is a privacy issue with the hospitals they cannot give out that information. 17 years in Hawaii and married to a local born and raised I think I know more than most of the doubters. Thsi is how Hawaii’s Birth Certificates look ask any local who’s child is born here.

    if BHO is disqualified PRIOR to the electors voting … then the electors a free to vote for whomever they want (which actually is the case either way)

    not sure what happen if he is disqualified after the electors vote but prior to the Senate confirming the results. Maybe is tossed to the House for selecting the president and then the Senate for selecting the VP??

    If the senate confirms the results and then he is disqualified, my reading of the constitution the 25th AMD would kick in and Biden would become president. He would then have to appoint a veep which would require confirmation.

    Maybe there is a constitutional scholar that can weigh in.

    Anyhow, its all a pipe dream – I don’t think the court will touch this with a 10 foot pole.

    To Gakkel Ridge:

    I agree that there is a strong possibility that Madelyne is actually his mother…and the birth certificate says so and that is why the Hawaiian officials are agreeing to keep it under wraps. He has probably told them that he promised “Grandma” on her “death-bed” that he wouldn’t tell her deepest secret…regardless of the fact that it would mean that his whole life was a lie. I think you may also be correct in surmising that his father ISN”T BHO Sr. They probably just had to find a black man to “marry” Stanley Ann off to since the child would obviously be half-black. They probably paid him a good sum to agree and he never gave his “wife” or “kid” another thought.

    It’s amusin Jeff that as I look around from the perspective of an objective observer, on the left I see only bloggers dissing questions about Sidi Obama as the obsession of cranks and conspiracy theorists.
    On right leaning sites however (the one I read at least – I avoid the nutters) I see numerous cogent arguments based on the very simple legal premise that Sidi Obama and his followers cannot seem to grasp.

    SAME RULES APPLY.

    It really isn’t that complicated, you would expect even a man whose lips move when he tries to think without an autocue to help him could get the idea, so keep plugging away and maybe the message will get through in the end.

    Anonymous in Hawaii with two kids:

    1. Where are the kids’ birth certificates with the doctor’s name and birth hospital on it?

    2 Have you ever seen them? There has to be one somewhere.

    3. Hospital release of your kids birth records: If you sign a release, wouldn’t the Hawaii hospital release them?

    4. Name of Hospital: Interestingly, you mention the name of the birth hospital.

    5. Obama, on the other hand, has not officially told us what Hawaii hospital he was born in.

    6. It seems, if we are to believe Obama’s half-sister, Obama was born in two different Hawaii hospitals.

    7. There is a simple solution when it comes to Obama:

    Obama, release your long form Hawaii birth certificate—the one with the doctor and birth hospital names on it—and your birth hospital records.

    8. My goodness, Obama, what terrible
    thing could have happened to you some 47 years ago when you were born?

    9. The event must have been so terrible 47 years ago that you are so scared or embarrassed to let anyone see those birth records today.

    Donofrio says he was NOT invited to teh Press Conference and will not be there. Why would WTP hold a press conference and not invite Sonofrio, who also has a case that is relevant to the overall discussion and findings of the SCOTUS??
