Fed Court: Eligibility Question “Important and Not Trivial”

Last week I reminded you that one of our Certification Class Action lawsuits was filed in State court in Tennessee, and that that case had been “removed” to Federal court by the defendants. I also told you that LLF had filed a motion to remand the case back to the State court. Last Friday the Federal court denied our motion.

While we’re disappointed that the Court denied our motion, there is some good news that came along with the denial. In its 12-page opinion the Court made several very positive statements about our case. Here are some quotes:

“The Court finds that the federal question presented, the meaning of the phrase ‘natural born citizen’ as a qualification for the Presidency set out in Article II of the Constitution, is important and not trivial.”

“The issue of whether President Obama is constitutionally qualified to run for the Presidency is certainly substantial.”

“It is clear that the stated federal issue of President Obama’s qualifications for the office are ‘actually disputed and substantial.’”

“It is also clear that there will be a legal dispute over the Constitution’s definition of ‘natural born citizen’ and the Supreme Court’s decision in Minor.”

The Court’s statements strongly imply that it has already decided many of the issues that usually lead to procedural dismissals, and that it has decided them in our favor. While it is certainly dangerous to read too much into such an opinion, the statements from this Federal court are encouraging. The Court appears to understand the most critical issues presented by our complaint.

The Tennessee Democratic Party, the Democratic National Committee, and the DNC Chairman Debbie Wasserman Schultz have already filed motions to dismiss our case. LLF will be filing our opposition to these motions within the next two weeks. We will post our filings as soon as they are filed.

As you know, LLF is taking several simultaneous approaches to addressing the eligibility issue. Our lawsuits are moving forward through the various courts. Please continue to help us by spreading the word about LLF and donating to support our efforts.

Liberty Legal Foundation’s ballot eligibility challenge in Georgia will be the first eligibility case to reach the U.S. Supreme Court on the meaning of the Constitutional term “natural born citizen.” Other eligibility cases have reached the Supreme Court, but all were dismissed on procedural grounds such as lack of standing. LLF’s Georgia case is the first such case to get a ruling on the merits. The Georgia courts reached the wrong conclusion, but the lowest Georgia court did rule on what “natural born citizen” means. Because of that ruling we are able to ask the U.S. Supreme Court to address this ruling, rather than a procedural dismissal.

In other words, we will be the first to give the U.S. Supreme Court an opportunity to confirm that “natural born citizen” means what the Court said it means in its 1874 Minor v. Happersett case.

We’ll post our Supreme Court filing the moment we get it filed.

I briefly was interested in the birther thing, but then I wasn't when it was clear he was born in Hawaii, nothing to see here so I forgot about it.

I assume you're my pal until you let me know otherwise.

Seriously, how can you prove or disprove this either way with today's tech????

Maybe in 20 years this stuff will be rock-solid, but the dude is like 50 now or thereabouts, right?????

We're living in a world where even common criminals can afford fake papers if the money is right.

You don't think that if Obama was really born in Kenya that he didn't have millions of dollars at his disposal to make irrefutable proof otherwise?

I'm not saying he wasn't born here, but I'm just saying that there is absolutely NO WAY anybody could prove otherwise.

Just because he hates America and wants to see us fail, doesn't mean he wasn't born here. There are plenty of people I know personally who grew up here and hate themselves and their country. We've officially turned into a post-WWII Germany.
