U.S. Supreme Court denies another application to stay election

WASHINGTON, D.C. – On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court denied yet another application to stay the electoral vote in Cort Wrotnowski’s case challenging Connecticut Secretary of State Susan Bysiewicz, due to her failure to verify the eligibility of presidential candidates Barack Hussein Obama and John Sidney McCain.
Wrotnowski claims neither candidate is a natural born citizen, citing Obama, whose father was a foreign national from Kenya, which was under British rule at the time, was born with British citizenship, and McCain was born in Panama, which is not and has never been a territory of the United States, and, therefore, neither are eligible to be president of the United States.
On Friday, another application to stay the electoral vote was submitted to Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy by Attorney Orly Taitz on behalf of Gail Lightfoot in a challenge against California Secretary of State Debra Bowen, claiming Obama is not qualified to be president of the United States until he provides proof he is a natural born citizen. As of Tuesday, after the electoral vote, Kennedy still had not responded.
It has been reported, rather than release his Hawaiian Certificate of Live Birth, at a cost of $10, to prove he was born in Hawaii, Obama has spent upwards of $800,000 in legal fees to avoid having to do so.
On his website, www.barackobama.com, Obama claims he wants to “create a transparent and connected democracy,” and states he wants to “open up government to its citizens.”
He goes on to say, “Our nation’s progress has been stifled by a system corrupted by millions of lobbying dollars contributed to political campaigns … and privileged access to inside information – all of which have led to policies that favor the few against the public interest,” and claims he will use “cutting-edge technologies to reverse this dynamic, creating a new level of transparency, accountability and participation for America's citizens.”
Yet, $800,000 later in legal fees, Obama is determined to get to the White House without providing citizens any proof, whatsoever, he is qualified.
As all attempts to stay the Electoral College vote have failed, citizens bombarded electors with letters, apprising them of concerns about Obama’s lack of eligibility and reminding them of their obligation to the Constitution.
And, as the 538 presidential electors were gathering in their respective states to vote and officially name Obama our 44th president, the Columbian, a newspaper in eastern Washington, interviewed Jane Buchanan-Banks, 73, an elector from Felida, Wash., who, as a life-long Democrat, said she was excited to have a role in this historic moment.
Buchanan-Banks was also reported as saying all the electors have been “inundated with mailings” regarding questions about Obama’s birthplace and his ineligibility to hold the office of president.
Buchanan-Banks reportedly said she would abstain and expect others to do the same if there was any merit to the claims. However, the article states “she looked into them and was confident they were false.”
Electors, per federal law, have the authority to select any candidate for president and vice president. However, Washington law requires electors to vote with their party or be subjected to a $1,000 fine.
In California, it remains unclear how its electors were selected, as Sonoran News pointed out previously, one of the Democratic electors, Ilene Huber, representing District 28 in Los Angeles, has been dead for more than seven years.
It is also unknown if an illegal post-election substitution for Huber was made.
Although his two applications to stay the election have been denied, Attorney Philip Berg’s petition to the U.S. Supreme Court, requesting review of U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Judge R. Barclay Surrick’s dismissal based on lack of standing, is still pending.
Berg’s case takes Obama’s birthplace to task, as Obama has stonewalled all requests to produce a valid copy of his vault birth certificate and other documents that might provide proof of his citizenship. Obama’s Certification of Live Birth posted online has been deemed a forgery by experts, while Obama’s Kenyan grandmother insists she was present in the delivery room when Obama was born in Mombasa, Kenya.
Other issues raised by Berg: Obama’s travel to Pakistan in 1981 when Americans were prohibited, Obama’s refusal to produce his college applications and acceptance forms, and school records in Indonesia reflect Obama was an Indonesian citizen enrolled as Barry Soetoro, son of Lolo Soetoro, his stepfather.
Another issue that has cropped up since Berg filed his complaint includes what appears to be a forged Selective Service System registration form, which Debbie Schlussel posted on her website last month.
Failure to have registered for the service by the time he turned 26 would preclude Obama from ever being able to obtain a job with the executive branch of the federal government, which includes the office of President of the United States.
Another recent discovery includes a video taken during the Democratic National Convention, which reveals New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson speaking in Spanish to a group of Latinos, emphasizing how Obama was the best candidate for the Hispanic community. Richardson clearly states in that video, “Barack Obama es un inmigrante,” (Barack Obama is an immigrant).

So, as the evidence piles high to indicate Obama is unqualified to hold the office of President of the United States, the Electoral College, regardless of warnings, either voted purposefully in disregard of the Constitution, voted blindly or to avoid a $1,000 fine, elected Obama on Monday.
