You’re welcome, CottonBall. I depend on pings to help keep up! There’s a lot happening.
Does it strike anyone else as ironic that the side that’s been screaming for years that Bush and Cheney had shredded the Constitution, now don’t seem to care if THEIR choice for POTUS is Constitutionally eligible?
“I disagree. If someone can make a compelling case, the Court will touch it. Donofrio’s case wasn’t compelling enough and was riddled with issues. If Cort’s case can draw 4 votes, then this thing will explode and O’dummy’s sphincter will be in a spasm.”
Is this case about Obama’s dual citizenship? Or is it the “Born-in-Kenya” angle? Option one might have merit (original intent), while option two - like I stated in the other thread - is plain silly.
Stealing wildly from the best conservative Obama expert, Steve Sailer, the Born-in-Kenya scenario goes something like this:
“Has anybody advocating this actually looked at a globe and thought about what a trip from Honolulu to Nairobi would have been like on a first-generation jetliner in 1961?
Hawaii and Kenya are on almost exact opposite sides of the world. The Boeing 707 had a range of only 3700 miles, so the outbound portion of their supposed trip would have looked something like this:
* A flight from Honolulu to the West Coast.
* Then a flight from the West Coast to the East Coast.
* Then from the East Coast to a refueling stop at Gander in Newfoundland.
* Then Gander to London.
* Then London to somewhere to the south (Cairo?).
* Then on to Nairobi in one or two more segments.
(The Great Circle distance going the other way around the world is slightly less, but there would have been even fewer flights available.)
They would have been in transit for, say, 100 hours each way.
It would then have taken a day or two on buses to get to the Obama family farm near Lake Victoria.
Two round trip tickets for this ambitious expedition would have been prohibitively expensive for anyone, let alone two young students.
Barack Sr. only got from Kenya to Hawaii in the first place due to the famous Tom Mboya Airlift, an expensive Cold War project funded by Americans to woo the next generation of Kenyas elites away from Soviet influence.
Not surprisingly, theres little evidence that Obama Sr. ever went home to Kenya during his four years in America. It was just too expensive.
Its especially unlikely that he would have taken his heavily pregnant bride on such a grueling trip to Kenya.
Besides the difficulties of travel for a pregnant woman, Obama Sr. had a little problem that would have dissuaded him from taking his new wife to see the folks. See, back in Kenya, he already had a wifeKeiza, and two kids, Roy and Auma.
His bigamous marriage to Obamas mother was a criminal act in Hawaii. Fortunately, for Barack Sr., the state of Hawaii didnt know about his other wife.
I find the above very persuasive. Feel free to argue the contrary.
Look at Donofrio’s conjecture on his site. There is a rosey scenario.
The whole BC thing is going to die the death of a million yawns. Nothing in the constitution states original birth certificate is required to prove NBC. The whole thing is a waste of time for all involved.
Okay, troll. I’ll play your game.
Suppose you are correct. Where is the damned birth certificate?
Actually, our so-called journalists should’ve uncovered this. Instead, they were spending time investigating an ordinary citizen. Joe.
Love your tagline...Ha!
“The Constitution sets qualifications for the president, and then the people decide who they think would be the better president”.
Bill Clinton, August 2008, when asked if Obama was qualified to be president by ABC.
I finally noticed you already pinged us to this thread! You are too quick, LucyT. I don’t know how you keep up with all this. But thanks. It does help keep me going each day with a little hope.
We aren’t at the stage where anyone who doesn’t believe that Obama was born in Kenya is a troll yet.
Of course, if that gets turned into official movement policy, conservatives will be too busy fighting over a piece of paper the next four years to actually oppose Obama in an effective way.
As for your question, I assume anything I link to will be dismissed as a forgery, right? So I might as well save myself the trouble.
Go for it. Remember your references, listed in http://investigatingobama.blogspot.com/2008/12/donofrio-dual-citizenship-natural-born.html
It really is just that simple.
Please note my tag line.
I have worked in a few African countries, and I am yet to see anyone prosecuted for bigamy. I doubt if that charge even exists in the law books of most African countries. In Nigeria for example, one can have as many wives as one wants, all of them legal.
I see very little reason why Obama’s baby daddy would be the least worried about taking his white “wife” home to Kenya.
Not to mention, Obama’s baby daddy was one of the sleaziest, most irresponsible men I have heard about, with very low morals, a drunkard, and a serial chaser of women, who constantly cheated on any woman he was with. This kind of thing would not be exactly new to him.
According to the 12th Amendment there are TWO separate candiate lists and separate votes--one for president the other for vice-president. Biden has been nominated for Vice-President and, it would seem to me, to have to remain on that list. If Obama is shown to be ineligible, then his name comes off the presidential candidate "list."
Can nominations be reopened after the panel of candidates are drawn up?
