One more observation: has anyone noticed that, no matter where these cases are brought, federal, state, election commission, secretary of state (hell, I think she delivered a petition directly to the Supremes) NO ONE HAS JURISDICTION OVER WHETHER OBAMA IS QUALIFIED TO RUN FOR PRESIDENT AND NO ONE HAS STANDING TO CHALLENGE OBAMA’S QUALIFICATIONS TO BE PRESIDENT. Does this make sense to anyone? Can it truly be the case that no one has the power to adjudicate this issue and no one has the right to bring a case? If that is the result it is absurd and outrageous. It virtually means a 20 year old guy could get off the plane from Fredonia and sign up to run for President and no one can stop him. WTH?!
Am I wrong? Has any judge ruled that there is a way to challenge eligibility by anyone anywhere?
How about this from poster Kenny Bunk:
(oh, he just made another comment, too - he’s smoking!)
In this astounding tour-de-force, Donofrio sums it all up. I am in awe.
However, this Amicus Curiae brief would be better read by the SCOTUS, not heard in an Administrative Hearing. Even if his ruling finds for the plaintiffs in the matter, Judge Mahili cannot order the relief they seek. The real test here is not in the Hearing Room. It is in the hearts and minds of the GA Officials who have within their power ....RIGHT NOW ... to strike the Mombasa MF from the ballot, as does every SOS in the 57 states. All Mahili can do is give them more legal basis for doing the right thing ... more than they need, if truth be told.
IMHO, all of us, including Leo, have gotten this thing Bass Ackwards. It is not us who should be bringing suit against Obama. It should be Obama in the role of Plaintiff, seeking relief from the SsOS who bar him from the ballot in their various states on Article II grounds.
It is he who has “standing.” The courts would have then to decide what a “Natural Born Citizen” is. If The ALJ finds for the plaintiffs in this hearing, that should be the signal gun for the start of the contest, but by the cold light of legal dawn, Mahili can actually do very little for us
Obama has eluded capture as a defendant. Therefore, he must be made the plaintiff if we are to get justice.
