I'll bet you thought the issue of President Obama's eligibility to be President was dead and buried...just like President Obama's involvement in Operation Fast and Furious, or his position on BAIPA (the Born Alive Infant Protection Act). I'll bet you thought that media had successfully turned this into a stale old joke instead of a sincere inquiry.
Well, maybe not.
Excerpted from Marv Dumon's article at examiner.com - a right wing web site, sort of like democraticunderground.com, but without the hatred and general nastiness:
On Wednesday, Chief Justice John Roberts of the Supreme Court scheduled a birther case brought on by Orly Taitz which calls into question Barack Hussein Obama's eligibility to be president of the United States. Dr. Taitz, a lawyer from Santa Margarita, Calif., also made the announcement on her website on Jan. 9.
As of this writing, major news networks such as ABC, Fox News, CBS, and NBC have yet to report on the high court's decision to review Barack Hussein Obama's eligibility to hold political office in the United States or any of its territories. The case is identified as Edward Noonan, et al., v. Deborah Bowen, California Secretary of State.
On Feb. 15, all nine justices will hear arguments on whether Obama used forged government documents and fake identification in order to get elected as commander-in-chief. Edward Noonan, et al., contend that if Obama had been ineligible to run in 2008, other Democratic candidates should have replaced him on the presidential ballot. Additionally, electoral votes from states such as California that went towards Obama should have been deemed null and void.
The Supreme Court's website shows that docket file no. 12A606 was originally denied by Justice Anthony Kennedy, a Reagan appointee, on Dec. 13. On Jan. 9, Chief Justice Roberts sent Dr. Taitz's application to the full court for a review scheduled for Feb. 15.
On Wednesday, Dr. Orly Taitz, who represents the birther cause, posted the following on her website:
The case. . . . provides a mountain of evidence of Barack Obama using a last name not legally his, forged Selective Service application, forged long form and short form birth certificate and a Connecticut Social Security number 042-68-4425 which was never assigned to him according to E-Verify and SSNVS. Additionally, this case provides evidence of around one and a half million invalid voter registrations in the state of California alone.
A team of forensic experts organized by Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio have looked into Obama's birth certificate. In July 2012, Arpaio told Fox News his team's conclusion that Obama's birth certification is "definitely fraudulent". After months of investigation, his forensic investigators had discovered code errors, computer-generated marks, and manipulated seals on the document.
In April 2011, the White House retracted the Hawaii certificate and replaced it with a long form version. .
Is it true? is the Supreme Court going to hear arguments regarding Barack Obama's eligibility to be President? If this article is accurate, it certainly looks that way.
Should we dismiss this story because mainstream media have not covered it? Nope: while it may or may not be true, media's pathetic-and-worse record in reporting negative news about Barack Obama - such as the two examples I cited at the beginning of this blog, among others - leaves them with no credibility.
So I will wait, and report what I find out when I find it out, probably having to rely on non-mainstream sites because mainstream media dare not tarnish the image they have created of their lord and savior Barack Obama.
Let me say, again, that I do not claim to know for certain whether Mr. Obama's documents are forged. But, as anyone who has read this blog for the last few years knows, I have significant doubts...and significant reasons for having those doubts.
Maybe we'll finally have a legal body - the biggest one of all - make that determination for once and for all.
