Birthers sue to force Calif. to verify candidate eligibility; Obama, Romney status questioned

April 7, 2012 @


SACRAMENTO
, Calif. — People who believe President Barack Obama was born in Africa have filed a lawsuit demanding California‘s secretary of state verify the eligibility of presidential candidates before allowing them on the November ballot.

Attorney Gary Kreep tells the Los Angeles Times that stems from Romney’s parents living in Mexico for many years.

Minor party politicians and voters aligned with the so-called birthers movement filed the suit in Sacramento that also raises questions about Mitt Romney‘s eligibility to run for president. Attorney Gary Kreep tells the Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/GKLyiq ) that stems from Romney’s parents living in Mexico for many years.

The suit was filed by Republican primary write-in candidate John Albert Dummett Jr., Markham Robinson of the American Independent Party of California and others. Robinson was among those who claimed in 2009 Obama was ineligible to be president.

Obama has released a birth certificate showing he was born in Honolulu.

    The question on Obama’s eligibility has been hanging around since the spring of 2007 – FIVE years ago. In 2008, Congress vetted McCain because he was born in Panama and declared him eligible because he was the child of two US citizens born in what was American territory at the time, while his father served in the US military. He met the standards.

    The Dems will question Romney’s eligiblity and demand that he be vetted. Fair’s fair, this time around the Republicans need to grow a spine and demand the same for Obama. Sheriff Joe’s investigation found there is no legitimate US birth certificate for Obama, no US birth certificate and a Kenyan father? he flunks on two out of three parts of the requirement…

    As a very concerned American Military veteran, I too would welcome a thorough
    and verified vetting of both Romney and Obama for the Office of POTUS. This action should be implemented immediately, time is of the essence. Consider how long this “Birther” incident has been swept under the carpet by an enabling media. Also let’s not forget the very considerable efforts of none other than Elena Kagan to derail, delay, and stand in the way all efforts to get at the TRUTH of the NAGGING OBAMA ELIGIBILITY QUESTIONS.
    And while at it let’s also see why Elena Kagen refused to recuse herself in the
    ongoing SCOTUS case?????

    The bottom line is that the Supreme Court ruled years ago that both parents must be US citizens to meet the natural born clause. Obama’s father was NEVER a US citizen that is a fact! The fact that he was born in Kenya, per his grandmother, and the fact that no airline in 1963 would allow a 9 month pregnant woman to board an international flight, vs. his lie of being born in Hawaii really don’t matter because he was NOT born to 2 US citizens!

    I would like to see this happen but when Zero and Medvedev were leaked, and even before that, I was certain the Anti-christ would control our country next year. I’m not sure if Putin is he our if it will be Zero but everything they are accused of goes unpunished. From the Fast and Furious debacle to the murder of the gay choir director. My feeling is come Mayday everyone that is paying attention should be ready to run to the hills and be a survivalist. Don’t take any cell phones or tracking devices. There has never been any takeovers where the dictator hasn’t slain thousands our millions. The one solace is folks that are in the Cat Birds Seat will be the first to go, like Peloozi, Maxine, Ol’ Stupid, Joe, Rev Al and Jessie… Hang on folks this ride is going to get bumpy but like all good novels, ours (if you believe in Christ) has a happy ending. Pity those who are asleep. MJB

    Why do the Republicans not try to force the issue? Has everyone been threatened, as was the Clintons? Even O’reilly on Fox News, who claims to be standing up for the people, will not touch this with a 10 foot pole although he talks about the liberal media all the time for not doing their job. Everyone in this country is starting to be afraid like they were of Hitler. Scary isn’t it?

    By his own admission, Obama is ineligible to be president. The Constitution requires the president to be a “natural-born” U.S. citizen. To meet that requirement, both parents must be U.S. citizens at the time of potential office holder’s birth. No “anchor babies” allowed. Only Obama’s mother passes the test. Obama’s father is listed as Kenyan on his birth certificate which is strange considering the country of Kenya didn’t exist until 1963, two years after his birth. Also, the name of the hospital listed on the birth certificate didn’t exist until 1978, 17 years after his birth.

    Clearly there is doubt as to his eligibility for office and hence, the eligiblity of both of his Supreme Court appointees if he’s eventually found ineligible to hold the office. The man has legitimate questions to answer to the American people, including what country’s passport he used to travel to Pakistan in 1981 when the State Department refused to allow U.S. citizens to travel to that country.

    The most “transparent administration in history” needs to bring in a window washer so we can get past all of the grime blocking our view. His idea of transparency makes me miss the days when Nixon was operating in the shadows. Nixon, while odious as he was, was less dangerous than the current office holder. At least no one was murdered during Watergate. Obama and his personal gang of “plumbers” can’t say the same about “Fast and Furious”.

    Greetings and Hello All Patriots across AMERICA!!!
    Hooray for Gary Creep, and Dr Orly Taitz and Sheriff Arpaio, and all the others who have investigated and found that this is a FALSE AND DECEPTIVE WHITE HOUSE we are experiencing. BHO is a plant and a TROJAN HORSE as well as a USURPER!!! What we Patriots have known since the summer of 2008, is now coming to the forefront. I encourage and ask that all who believe this POTUS to be a FRAUD, UNCONSTITUTIONAL, AND MOST ASSUREDLY A TRAITOR TO CONTACT and DEMAND that the Secretary of State of your particular state before his name goes on a ballot he has to prove his right to run with a verifiable, recorded and dated Birth Certificate or he is not on the ballot in any state where he cannot meet the CONSTITUTIONAL REQUIREMENTS FOR THIS OFFICE. We Patriots all know that he cannot under any circumstance do that so he will be off of every state ballot if the CONSTITUTION IS FOLLOWED TO THE LETTER OF THE INTENT. Americans must not allow this worst mistake ever to continue. End it NOW!!!!!

    There has been no such BC released by the fraud in the WH, he gain tried to pass off a counterfit COLB and will not remove the legal restraint from his ordinary records, has a questionable SS# and draft card, so far everything about this uproven citizen reeks of a scam and the cowards of the politburo, the worthless MSM and all the spineless government law agencies haven’t the guchels to even defend their country knowing their orders are coming from a usurper…..and I would bet a cheap lunch on this just to hear the numbskull excuses from the left.

    If one of you clowns on the left have a valid BC for proof then cough it up…..

    I hope the left totally vets Mitt Romney’s birth certificate as well as all other candidates. That would make it much harder for the Marxists Democrats to block investigation of the questionable Obama Birth Certificate. Let the Leftist open that door a little wider.
    Never ever vote for a Democrat.!!

    Add Santorum to the list of people to check for eligability,
    I hear his father is a naturalised immigrant, which would exclude him from running.

    “Obama’s mother passes the test”
    Does she really”
    Didn’t she gave up her U.S.Citizenship when she married soeroto and moved to Indonesia, I believe she had to so she could be a citizen of a muslim country to live there and for “little barry” to go to school..

    This entire debacle with B.O. is a national tragedy and must not be allowed to continue. I say arrest B.O. and George Soros and everyone involved with hiding the true identity of B.O. I want to see all of them even if some are Republicans take the fall of this outlandish scheme. Americans from one end to the other need to know the truth and get this cancer out of the White House. My pet fish are more qualified to be in the White House than this moron. Because of the audacity of B.O. to carry on such a scam on the American people I believe he should be tried and sentenced as the laws require for top treason. He should be removed at once from power and all the wrong righted. American is too good of a place to allow a punk like this to ruin everything and for all our brave troops from when our country was founded to see what is taking place in our country with a fraud running things would make them turn over in their graves. I am sick and tired of seeing the clown get on TV and spew his crap to the people everyday. I’d like to see while he’s making such outlandish statements while on TV to have a hook come from the side and jerk him right off the stage and throw the idiot into a paddy wagon for all to see. Then after that you’d see a new America re-emerge. We cannot allow this crap to continue.

    “Obama has released a birth certificate showing he was born in Honolulu.”

    this statement has been proved wrong, and they know it..yet here it is again… Americans will eventually catch up with these crooks and they are foolish to think otherwise.. soon come ,mon.. soon come

    This is what I have waiting for. Finally a chance to have my voice heard. We need more sites to provide for comments. I have doubted BO’s eligibility from day one, and since then, becauuse of all of the fraud and other pertenant info that has popped up I now firmly believe that he is ineligible.
    One thing that has bothered me is, everyone talking about impeachment. If he is a usurper,(and I use the word “if” very loosely) then he cannot be impeached, because impeachment would imply that he is in there legally, and has just abused his power. Using the term usurper implies that he is a foriegn entity who has no right being there in the first place. This would make his presence in the w.h. an act of espionage not treason. If he holds dual citizenship then he would be guilty of both treason and espionage. To whit he has supplied foriegn powers with military equipment, has given away classified info to foriegn powers, has violated the constitution on numorous occasions,has allowed foriegn entities to enter our country illegally, and has looked the other way while our citizens have been murdered.
    At this point, filing for impeachment has become a moot point. By the time it all takes place, his tenure will be over. But we can still charge him with espionage and send a message to the rest of the world (“DON’T TREAD ON ME”). While doing this keep in mind that both charges can carry the same punishment. One that this time, I believe we should not allow for a presidential pardon lest we show weakness to a faction of the world that would take it as signal that we are easy prey. This we cannot allow to happen.
    I still believe that we can recover what we have lost but we must act fast before it is to late. We the people must regain our voice, and make sure that it is our voice that representatives carry to the government, and not their own. When we allowed our reps to be our voice on issues of law, education, health, commerce, and God knows how many oter things, we very nearly gave away our freedom. This must stop. Stand up, speak up.
    Remember, this is not America, this is the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
    A concerned citizen and patriot,
    Lloyd

    Something I failed to point out in my earlier comment, if BO is charged with espionage, he can be charged and arrested immediatly and heald without bail if for no other reason, terrorism. This would justify issueing warrants to sieze all records regarding his national affilliation/s. And it seems to me that any attourney should know this,,more than myself or any other layperson. The fact that it has been confirmed that the documents shown to the public have been forgeries, should be enough to start the ball rolling, so that we can put an end to this nonsense. They need to keep in mind, that freedoms lost will apply to them as well. If they want to make sure BO does not get away with his crimes, this, in my opinion seems to be the best course of action.
    GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

    I still dont hold out any hope of anyone being able to do one single thing. They have all the right people in places of authority to block it. Where are those conservatives in Washington. Why are they not doing anything??????? Are they for us or against us. Are they actually covering for Obama?????

    CORRECTION

    Obama produced an electronic image of a Birth Certificate but has never actually produced a bona fide paper copy of a CERTIFIED DOCUMENT. And the Electronic Version has been proven to be forged. When will people wake up and accept the truth that Obama is NOT going to ever release any records that show who he really is.

    If you are born in this country you are a natural born citizen. It doesn’t matter where your parents were born. I don’t know where people got the idea that both parents have to be citizens. I think they confused that with being born in another country, but having both parents US citizens. That would also make you a natural born citizen. That was the case with John McCain. Born in Panama.
    Romneys father was born in Mexico, but both his parents were US citizens, and Mitt was born in the US, so there is no question there. There is a lot of ignorance going around. Read the Constitution!

    Anybody that can read and do their own research KNOWS that the birth certificate obama produced was a fraud and Sheriff Joe was one of several that proved it. If you READ the USA Consitution…. ‘No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.’

    To be a natural born citizen you must be born of TWO America Citizens at the time of your birth.

    Also, read the following of the Consitutional laws and SEE how many of them obama has broken …

    ‘The President shall, at stated Times, receive for his Services, a Compensation, which shall neither be increased nor diminished during the Period for which he shall have been elected, and he shall not receive within that Period any other Emolument from the United States, or any of them.

    Before he enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation: — “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

    Section. 2.The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States; he may require the Opinion, in writing, of the principal Officer in each of the executive Departments, upon any Subject relating to the Duties of their respective Offices, and he shall have Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offences against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment.

    He shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law: but the Congress may by Law vest the Appointment of such inferior Officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the Courts of Law, or in the Heads of Departments.

    The President shall have Power to fill up all Vacancies that may happen during the Recess of the Senate, by granting Commissions which shall expire at the End of their next Session.

    Section. 3. He shall from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such Measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient; he may, on extraordinary Occasions, convene both Houses, or either of them, and in Case of Disagreement between them, with Respect to the Time of Adjournment, he may adjourn them to such Time as he shall think proper; he shall receive Ambassadors and other public Ministers; he shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed, and shall Commission all the Officers of the United States.

    Section. 4. The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.’

    Section 4 tells US that with all the laws obama has broken HE should be impeached.

    Uh…..Obama produced a FORGERY as his birth certificate. I personally downloaded the document from the White House website and personally dismembered it with my Adobe Illustrator! That isn’t possible if it were not FAKE! Someone (i.e. some liberal) needs to explain why ALL of Barry’s records ….ALL of the them…are sealed! He is INVISIBLE! George Bush’s records are not sealed. Clinton’s records are not sealed. NO PRESIDENT’S RECORDS IN HISTORY ARE SEALED EXCEPTING BARRY SOETEROS! HEEEEELLLLLLOOOOO!!

    Understand this PLEASE! If one READS the DUMMETT DICTUM they will KNOW that the filing is “TO ENFORCE the CONSTITUTION on how Canadates are to be VETTED! This is NOT a BIRTHER issue, it is a CONSTITUTIONAL ISSUE! IF the AP, and all other MEDIA would allow the PEOPLE to know the TRUTH, and STOP their LIES to the PEOPLE on even the subjects, like they do everything else. Then maybe just maybe WE WOULD get this NATION in the RIGHT direction! But then again the Media doesnt read anything like “some others on the Hill” do they?

    I am the person who filed the lawsuit vs Secretary of State Debra Bowen and it has nothing to do about where anyone was born. I am a registered with the Federal Elections Commision Republican Candidate for President of the United States. In the Lawsuit I filed in California where I reside I seek to do two things.
    1. I am asking Debra Bowen, the Sevretary of State of California to ensure that all candidate, including myself, meet the Constitutional requirements set forth in Article II, Section I, Clause V of the United States Constitution and 2. Define what the term Natural Born Citizen is. This is it. I don’t care where any candidate is born. I am not attached to the duragatory term ” Birthers”. I am a Constitutionalist who only seeks to make sure that every candidate running for President meets the qualificatios for President, spelled out in the Constitution. If people or organizations don’t stop aligning me with the so called “Birthers” I will sue them for libel and slander. I am only aligned with the Republican Party and am trying to make sure the people of the United States are not defrauded and that the people I have to run against are legally able to do so. http://www.johndummett.us
