This issue just won’t let go of me. I just went to attorney Donofrio’s “Natural Born Citizen” blog, to see what the SCOTUS had done regarding Cort Wrotnowski’s case today:
[UPDATE]: 11:26 AM – Dec. 12 2008 : Rumors of a decision denying Cort’s application are unequivocally false. A SCOTUS Spokesperson just told Cort Wrotnowski there has been no decision. She indicated there will be no decision until Monday. The conference is sealed, no clerks are allowed in.]
Interesting… most lawyers I have read were predicting the SCOTUS would perfunctorily bat it away. Even more interesting, was the post to which this was an update. Donofrio seems to have had enough of the MSM et al demonizing him as some hateful nutcase, and dismissing his Constitutional issue as frivolous. He unloaded, and were I a reporter or lawyer guilty of such, I would be compelled to hang my head in shame upon reading “NATURAL BORN CITIZEN”: DEFINED BY 14TH AMENDMENT FRAMERS AND IN TREATISE RELIED ON BY SCALIA:
This week has been quite enlightening as to the blatantly obvious fact that our “Fourth Estate” press corps have been transmogrified into propaganda ponies polly wanna crackering whatever may be handed down to them from “The One Corporation – your source for everything…” (cue eery theme tune). They don’t report the news anymore. No. Now they tell you what they want the news to be. There’s a huge difference.
For the record, my law suit was brought to remove three candidates from the ballots – three candidates who have big Constitutional issues as to their eligibility.
At the time of his birth, Obama was a British/Kenyan citizen by descent of his father. Because I pointed out pesky international laws which governed his citizenship due to the fact that a father has every legal right in the world to have the laws of his nation apply to his son, I have been labeled a conspiracy freakoid of nature.
Never mind that I included demands for Panama [born] John McCain and the Nicaraguan born Roger Calero to also be removed from our ballots. No, they don’t want to talk about that do they – because it would blow the “he’s just another Obama hater” mantra clear out of play.
A citizen (me) raised the Constitutional issue of first impression as to the meaning of “natural born Citizen” in Article 2, Section 1, of the United States Constitution – that ultimate pesky legal document for those who would rather “be” the law instead of following it.
What are the Fourth Estate propagandists worried about? Thou doth protest too much. Me thinks so. Why? Because the law is against their man – it indicates Barack Obama is not a natural born Citizen of the United States. And most of the media pundits have basically agreed by default. I say this because when yelling and mocking the issue, their main argument is not that the law is on their side (they know it isn’t), but rather that the law shouldn’t be discussed at all.
He then clearly, convincingly, and, for a lawyer, succinctly lays out the legal justification for his assertion that Obama is not a “Natural Born” citizen. Please read it. One doesn’t have to be a lawyer to understand it, and frankly, any lawyer who could read it and continue to dismiss the issue as frivolous, is a rank partisan and no friend of our Constitution. Similarly, any reporter who could read it and dismiss the author as a hateful nutcase, is a rank partisan and no friend of the novel concept of unbiased reporting of the truth. Both are shameful and ought to feel ashamed… but the arrogant fools won’t. ◄Dave►
