if you have the florins, we have the fauna

I hereby resolve to post here more often.The last time I wrote, we still had a private banking system and what was good for General Motors was good for the nation. And Obama hadn't yet become a failed usurper-elect, after whom we could name the cardboard shantytowns springing up in Central Park. Darn his do-nothing policy of not taking office! But shall we call them "Obamavilles" or "Barackbergs"?


  1. Challenge, can anyone prove this wrong?:–

    1. Constitution Article II requires USA President to be “natural born citizen”.

    2. BHO’s website admits his dad was Kenyan/British, not American, citizen when BHO was born.

    3. BHO is therefore not a “natural born citizen” (irrespective of Hawaiian birth or whether he may be a 14th Amendment “citizen” of USA) — as confirmed in the Senate’s own McCain qualification resolution agreed to by BHO.

    4. Supreme Court has already docketed two upcoming conferences, 1/9/09 and 1/16/09 — between dates Congress counts electoral votes (1/8/09) and Presidential inauguration (1/20/09) — to address Berg Case and fashion relief on BHO’s eligibility to be President.

    5. Since no facts are in dispute, Supreme Court rules on Summary Judgment to enjoin BHO’s inauguration as President.

    6. Therefore, BHO is not inaugurated as President.

    7. Vice President Elect Biden is inaugurated Acting President under the 20th Amendment to serve until new President is determined — the procedure for which determination to be set out by Congress and/or the Supreme Court so long as in conformance with the Constitution.

  2. TEDBOT!! YOU FOUND ME!!! What a thrill. Your challenge is child's play: #3 is where your argument goes south: any child born of a US citizen, or born in this country, is a citizen of the US, a native, and eligible for the Presidency. Whatever "agreement" you reference doesn't obviate Obama's citizenship; he can't simply accidentally it away as you imply he did. Nice try, though. Did you ever make a living as a mortgage lender? Because there's something about you that just screams adjustable-rate.

    The Supreme Court's manner of dealing with idiotic lawsuits is to put them on the conference docket so ALL the justices can reject them at once, instead of having embarrassing scenes with parades of nitwits from one justice to the next. It saves the SCOTUS time.

  3. "...can't accidentally SIGN it away."

    Really, I should preview more as well. Resolution #2.

  4. Mrs. Polly -- Stand by. Ted's already circulating a follow-up ultimatum to Congress.

    Feel free to alert the FBI. Everyone else has!


    When counting the electoral votes, either Congress finds by 1/8/09 that Obama, not being an Article II “natural born citizen”, fails to qualify as President whereupon Biden becomes the full fledged President under 3 USC 19 (free to pick his own VP such as Hillary) or thereafter defers to the Supreme Court to enjoin Obama’s inauguration with Biden becoming only Acting President under the 20th Amendment until a new President is duly determined.

    The preferable choice, at least for the Democrats, should seem obvious.

  6. BY THE WAY, you on this thread don't seem to understand that "CITIZEN" as under the 14th Amendment is NOT the same thing as "NATURAL BORN CITIZEN" as a unique qualification for President under Article II of the Constitution.

    (While BHO may or may not be a "citizen", that's not the point. Even if he's a "citizen" he is NOT a "natural born citizen" since his father was Kenyan/British, not American, citizen, when BHO was born.

    Case closed.

  7. Thanks for the heads-up, Strange. But look, he's he-ere, owlishly blinking in the unaccustomed strong light of logic beaming from the liberal blogs he says he only visits to spam, but can't tear himself away from.

    Ted,Ted,Ted. Open the little ears.

    President. Barack. Obama.

    May I refer you to the very excellent website Yes To Democracy, where Patrick Mackinion, a much more patient person than I, answered you in full? I am pasting the salient legal point here:

    :At least two cases where one or both parents were not US citizens determined that a child born in the US was a natural born citizen.

    Wong Kim Ark:

    "It was held that a person born within the jurisdiction of the U.S. to non-citizens who "are not employed in any diplomatic or official capacity" is automatically a citizen, per the Fourteenth Amendment. "

    Perkins v. ELG:

    "The U.S. Supreme Court concluded that Marie Elizabeth Elg who was born in the United States of Swedish parents then naturalized in the United States, had not lost her birthright U.S. citizenship because of her removal during minority to Sweden and was entitled to all the rights and privileges of that U.S. citizenship. In this case, the U.S. Supreme Court affirmed the decree that declared Miss Elg "to be a natural born citizen of the United States."

    Perkins v. ELG also references a earlier case of a Prussian subject who came to the US, had a son, and returned back to Prussia. Quote:

    "'Young Steinkauler is a native-born American citizen. There is no law of the United States under which his father or any other person can deprive him of his birthright. He can return to America at the age of twenty-one, and in due time, if the people elect, he can become President of the United States"

    So the citizenship of Obama's father doesn't mean anything. By US law and multiple decisions of the Supreme Court, a child born in the United States is a "Native Born" US citizen and therefore qualifies under the US Constitution, Article II, Section 1, Clause 5."

    Snap! NOW the case is closed. What are you doing January 20? We're having a potluck inauguration ball. We need someone to bring the cheese board. Ted? Do you serve anything but spam?
