Obama Citizenship Update
(Barack Obama is shown circled in yellow in a group photo during a graduation ceremony at the SDN Menteng 1 school in Jakarta, Indonesia.)
Here is an overview of where the Obama Citizenship lawsuits stand.
For those who are interested in the Certificate conspiracy, here is a detailed overview offered by Ron Polarik, PhD. I don't know if I buy into this aspect of the concerns, but you can review the information and decide for yourselves I suppose.
Justice Kennedy denied the application for an Injunction to Stay Electoral Vote Count by Congress on January 8, 2009. However, the Writ of Certiorari is still pending and is now scheduled for Conference before U.S. Supreme Court on January 9, 2009. The other conference concerning the Application to Justice Antonin Scalia for an immediate injunction to Stay the Joint Session of Congress from Counting the Electoral College Votes is scheduled for January 16, 2009. Both of these can be verified on the supreme court's website:
I'm still put off by this whole situation. What floors me about all of this is that American citizens simply do NOT understand or even care about this issue. We have a President Elect who may or may not be Constitutionally qualified to be the POTUS. To prove his qualifications, all he has to do is release his birth, adoption, travel, and school records. Obama has overtly refused to do so and the American people haven't batted an eye. THAT'S what bothers me. We have a clear subsuming of our Constitutional republic, an elected leader who has show us by his actions with this issue that only HE can decide to what issues he will be held accountable.
Look, I don't think it's world ending that Obama may or may not technically qualify to be President. It's important, but it's not the world's biggest issue. What gets me riled up is that this man was even put in the position to be elected BEFORE he released his records. Since when, in a democracy, is it not acceptable to ask our representatives to prove their qualifications?
Obama is not God. The President of the United States is NOT God. He is a representative of the people, for the people, and elected by the people. He is restricted and governed by the Constitution regardless of how "cool" people think he is.
I understand he's the first black president, and that's nifty. But black, white, yellow, orange, tan, green... whatever, he is to be held to the same standards as every other president of the US of A. So far, that has not happened. He has given our Constitution and our people the middle finger by refusing to make his records (birth, adoption, travel, and school) public and he's on the cusp of getting away with it.
In the very, very, very least, EVERY American citizen should want Obama to release his records so that we can be assured he is qualified to serve as our president. I want this conspiracy to go away, don't you? Only one man on the planet can make this all go away - Barack Obama.
If you'd like this matter to be laid to rest, sign THIS petition if you'd like to see Obama release his records.
