Without an explanation, the United States Supreme Court has declined to hear the first of what will inevitably be NUMEROUS challenges to the eligibilty of President-Elect Barack Hussein Obama II to serve as the President of the United States.
The Court declined to issue an emergency stay on the Electoral College votes, scheduled for December 15th, as requested by Leo Donofrio in his challenge to Obama’s citizenship. Donofrio acknowledges that Obama was allegedly born in Hawaii, but that his Kenyan and British citizenship precludes him from being considered a “natural born” citizen.
The case filed by Philip Berg, a Pennsylvania attorney, which alleges that (a) Obama was born elsewhere, such as Kenya, and/or (b) his Indonesian citizenship as a child of Lolo Soetoro, making him ineligible to be President, will have his case considered some day this week or next. Additionally, there are at least 16 other challenges at the state and federal court levels nationwide, including the case filed to stop the California Secretary of State from certifying the election and the Electors by Alan Keyes.
Despite being referred to as nutcases, right-fringe, and delusional, there are still many who believe that Obama could settle this matter very quickly, so that it does not fester as a cloud over his administration. While I would prefer that he not serve as our President, I do want our next President to be able to work on our Nation’s problems without being plagued by issues that cast doubt over his capacity and eligibility.
In a twist of irony, all the mainstream media that either refused to report anything on the birth certificate issue, or buried it in the body of the news, are reporting the Supreme Court’s denial of the Donofrio case like a wildfire: The Associated Press, The Chicago Tribune, the Washington Post, the Boston Globe!!
Just before he was scheduled for a press conference at his hotel, Dr. Jerome Corsi, PhD., author of An OBAMA Nation:Leftist Politics and the Cult of Personality was arrested and is presently being detained in Kenya. FOX News has confirmed the story.
Joseph Farah, of World Net Daily said that it is unclear as to what the circumstances are surrounding the detention of Dr. Corsi.
What is known thus far is that Dr. Corsi had postponed several radio appearances earlier, citing that some “doors” that had previously been unavailable to him in his research on Sen. Barack Obama had “opened” and he was traveling to Kenya. At this point, it is still unknown as to what information Dr. Corsi had found, and what connection it has to Obama, let alone the impact on the Obama campaign.
Sen. Barack Obama and his cousin, Kenyan Prime Minister Ralia Odinga
Sources in Kenya are trying to determine what role, if any, that the Prime Minister of Kenya may have played in Dr. Corsi’s arrest and detention. After all, Prime Minister Odinga is Barack Obama’s cousin, whom Obama campaigned for, allegedly at the expense of the American taxpayers.
As would be expected, Obama spokesperson Bill Burton had no comment on behalf of the campaign.
UPDATE: THE AP is reporting that Corsi is being deported over questions about his visa.
In another one of what appears to be a McCain Bold Strategic Move, Real Clear Politics is reporting that the McCain campaign is restructuring its resources in the Michigan area to other battleground states to concentrate more on states that can still be swayed to the Red column.
RCP is stating that all radio and television ads have been pulled, the McCain mailings have either been cancelled or scaled back, and only a minimal McCain staff will remain in the state that is purple, leaning Blue! The Associated Press has now stated the same thing.
While the liberal media will call this a win for Obama, it is clear that McCain knows that that it is important that he protect the Red states that are needed to win the Presidency. This, of course, does not rule Michigan out of the McCain column, because, after all, there are still 33 days left, and October can be full of surprises.
