Constitution and Government; an Unexpected Encounter

Gentle Readers, at the risk of contradicting His Majesty’s post SLOW NEWS DAY; I think we have some news of import. Allow me to explain.

Back on June 3, I imposed a post on you; NATURAL BORN CITIZEN. Short form. There is a case in Leon County Florida, VOELTZ -v- OBAMA. Michael Voeltz is a registered Democrat who is suing to have Barack Hussein Obama removed from the presidential ballot in Florida on the basis that he does not meet the Constitutional qualifications to be President. Voeltz’ attorney [Larry Klayman, founder of Judicial Watch] has introduced a number of disqualifications that are possible; including the case MINOR -v- HAPPERSETT, 88 U.S. 162 (1874) 88 U.S. 162 (Wall.).

This was the case I discussed, and quoted. Because it turns out that despite the claims of the Democrats [and of course it is unheard of for Democrats to lie for their own benefit]; the US Supreme Court defined “Natural Born Citizen” 138 years ago. Unanimously. And the definition is not to the benefit of the pResident who currently occupies the White House.

Today, at the Leon County Courthouse, there was a hearing in front of Circuit Court Judge Terry Lewis. The attorneys for the Democrats tried to claim that the court could not rule Obama off of the ballot because he was not the nominee. This is despite the detail that the Democratic Party has filed papers with the State of Florida saying that since he was unopposed, he was the nominee. I don’t think Judge Lewis was amused.

TWANLOC wanted to short-circuit this, before it reached the hearing stage. They failed. Judge Lewis has a history of standing up to them. It is just possible that there will be a court ruling that Obama cannot be on the ballot, absent his filing specific proofs. Which he has either declined to do or is incapable of doing. The next batch of motions is due next Monday, June 25.

That lower court ruling would not be the end, of course. There will be appeals and all sorts of delays and maneuverings. But the lower court ruling is going to put a world of hurt on the Enemy. We can make that hurt worse.

Many of my fellow citizens of the Empire are active in the TEA Party movement. The TEA Party is anything but monolithic. It makes herding cats look like the Marine Corps Drill Team. We do nothing top down. We do everything bottom up. And that is part of our strength, because we cannot be anticipated.

I want to offer an idea, if not to the whole Universe, at least to the small fragment of the Universe that is the Empire. And if there are some who want to take it and run with it, they can. I don’t charge royalties for the idea, although I do reserve the right to kvell at any particularly elegant implementation.

For those LC’s who are active in the Patriot movement, perhaps it is time for quiet talks with like-minded souls and some preparations to react. Sound out supporters, consider lawyers, compare venues in your state, and your state’s particular election laws. And keep up on the case. Know the precedents cited, and the evidence submitted. Watch the various twists and turns as Obama’s lawyers are, well, lawyers. And if a decision comes down that bars Obama from the Florida ballot or demands a level of proof that he will not submit; if you are already prepared you can possibly file a parallel action in your own state.

Every state that he cannot appear on the ballot takes him farther away from the 270 electoral votes he will need to win. Every dollar that the DNC and the Obama campaign has to spend defensively to keep him on the ballot [and it will be expensive for them, especially for the twists and turns needed to try to do it while carefully not proving he is legally eligible [which I don’t think he can do based on MINOR -v- HAPPERSETT alone] is a dollar less of Agit-prop he can buy.

If he can prove it, indisputably, that leaves the question why for 4 years he concealed the evidence in the first place, when releasing it when his own campaign was attacking the bona fides of every political opponent would have saved the entire nation a great upheaval. Of course, doing anything for the benefit of this nation never has been on his to-do list.

Here and here are some links where the case can be watched.

And of course, do a regular web search.

We will, certainly, have to deal with unscrambling everything he has done if he is not qualified to be the President. I suspect that subject will occupy ALL of us should that be the case.

    Thanks, Subotai. It was a slow one until you made it not so. I appreciate that. :)

    And I enjoy the news too. Not that I know that this is a particularly prone to be successful route to take but I, unlike the Gentry Establishment, do believe that conservatives can walk and chew gum at the same time. Hitting the enemy on one flank does not preclude hitting him on the other as well.

    Every blow weakens or, at the very least, distracts him.

    And there IS a case, as you correctly point out. There IS precedent. This is NOT an unknown territory that is a “distraction” to the “real” issues that is best left for another day since “we don’t have the time” to go over it right now. The precedent is clear. Should a new one be set? Perhaps. Personally I think it’s ludicrous that my Heirs can’t run for president as they were born to a foreign citizen on U.S. soil as they’ve never left this country and are as American as the proverbial apple pie, but if that needs to change then it needs to change the PROPER way.

    That’s how a nation of laws works, if any respect is to be had for its laws in toto. And I don’t give a flying fuck if the Country Club GOP thinks that it’s “unhelpful” or “uncivil” for us lowly peons to talk about it.

    I agree there are more prominent issues that the front runner ought to be spending his time on right now, and by all means let him do so. That doesn’t mean that the rest of us can’t go on pursuing it.

    And, besides, no matter what, I agree with you and have said from the moment the whole birth certificate started: You DON’T spend years and millions of dollars hiding something unless there’s something TO hide.

    It’s just plain common sense.

    The Imperial motto (one of them): We’re a pack, not a herd.

    If that confounds our “betters”, then so much the better.

    We did know they weren’t dog people, didn’t we ?
