Eligibility Case Continues

Posted by JRed

I apologize because I was late to the party in reporting on this news from last week. No matter though since I guess we can file this under the "Move Along! There's Nothing To See Here" category:

Sanctions Sought In Eligibility Case
"A high-powered team of Los Angeles attorneys representing President Obama in his effort to keep his birth certificate, college records and passport documents concealed from the public has suggested there should be 'monetary sanctions' against a lawyer whose clients have brought a complaint alleging Obama doesn't qualify for the Oval Office under the Constitution's demand for a 'natural born' citizen in that post. In fact, the President's attorneys filed a motion demanding birth and college records be withheld from public."

Now, why would he want to spend all that money on "a high-powered" legal team and withhold records from the public if there's nothing to hide? I've asked that question from day one and I'll continue to ask it until someone can provide me with a suitable answer.

Perhaps this is why:

Now, former presidential candidate Alan Keyes is a plaintiff in one of the many lawsuits seeking to verify whether Barack Obama qualifies under the U.S. Constitution's requirements to occupy the Oval Office. He's saying the tactics adopted by lawyers for the President confirm there is an issue for the courts to investigate.

The onetime U.S. Ambassador says,
"It confirms the common sense suspicion that he won't act forthrightly in this matter because he has something to hide."

Hmmm, I think I'll be sure to file this under the "Spiritual Deception" category instead. Another sign of the times.

What I find rather interesting is the sudden uptick in news about those wanting to legally force the issue. Why now? Why not before the election? Why all of a sudden after months of intense investigative reporting by me and many others?

I won't be surprised in the least bit, but I will be extremely frustrated if something does eventually come of this and it becomes a mainstream issue front and center.

***UPDATE 2/23/09 : Senator Questions Obama Eligibility : Right on cue, a U.S. Senator has weighed in on the continuing controversy over Barack Obama's eligibility for office by saying he has never seen proof the new President was actually born in Hawaii. "Well, his father was Kenyan and they said he was born in Hawaii, but I haven't seen any birth certificate," Senator Richard Shelby, R-Alabama, told constituents in Cullman County. "You have to be born in America to be president." Interesting how this story continues to develop and only confirm what we were looking at months ago.***

***UPDATE 2/24/09 : 2nd U.S. Soldier In Iraq Challenges Eligibility : Another U.S. soldier on active duty in Iraq is joining a challenge to President Obama's eligibility to be commander-in-chief. Says issue could decide if "we are a Constitutional Republic."***

***UPDATE 2/27/09 : Major General - President's Eligibility Needs Proof : On the heels of two active duty members of the U.S. military serving in Iraq calling for President Obama to prove his eligibility to be president, a retired major general has agreed to join the case, saying he just wants "the truth."***

***UPDATE 2/27/09 : Eligibility Lawyer Argues For President's Deportation :
A Democrat who served as deputy attorney general in Pennsylvania and now is leading a number of lawsuits over the eligibility of President Barack Obama to occupy the Oval Office has told radio talk show host Michael Savage that not only is Obama not eligible to be president, he's probably an illegal alien and should be deported.***
