In March of this year, Michael Voeltz, a registered Democrat, filed a lawsuit in Florida challenging the eligibility of Barack Obama to run for or serve as President of the United States. Larry Klayman of Freedom Watch USA served as Voeltz’s attorney in the case. He explained that the legal challenge was being made on two issues.
The first had to do with Article 2, Section 1 of the US Constitution that states that the President of the United States much be a ‘natural born citizen.’ In 1875, the US Supreme Court ruled that a natural born citizen is a person who is born in the United States and that both parents are US citizens at the time of birth. In Obama’s case, his father was a British citizen, never had US citizenship and therefore, according to the Constitution and Supreme Court, is not eligible to hold the office.
The second aspect of their case rested on the legitimacy or lack thereof, of Obama’s birth certificate. They cited the findings of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department Cold Case Posse investigation and findings that provide substantial evidence that the birth certificate presented by the White House is a forgery.
In July, Florida Circuit Judge Terry Lewis ruled that Obama was a US citizen and dismissed the case with prejudice, citing at the time that Obama was not the official candidate of the Democratic Party and thus his eligibility could not be contested. In the case, Lewis stated that everyone born in the US is a citizen, but he did not address the issue of ‘natural born citizen’ which was one of the main aspects of the lawsuit. Lewis also ignored all of the evidence submitted by Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
Now that the election is over, Klayman, on behalf of Voeltz, has refilled a legal challenge to Obama’s right to hold the office of President. The challenge explains that under Florida state law, this lawsuit is within the proper time frame to contest the election statutes of the state. In the complaint received by Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner, it read in part:
“Defendant Barack Hussein Obama is a direct threat to the safety and security of the United States, and it’s Constitution, which plaintiff must protect and defend by oath.”
“Plaintiff asserts that Defendant Barack Hussein Obama is not a natural born citizen of the United States because he was born a British subject of a British subject father, Barack Obama Sr., who was married to the mother of Barack H. Obama at the time…”
“Barack Obama Sr., a citizen of the British colony of Kenya, and his children, were subject to the operation of the British Nationality Act of 1948. By the operation of Part 1 Section 1 of that Act, Barack Hussein Obama became a British subject, upon birth to a British subject father. It is not known whether he has lost that birth allegiance to the British crown.”
“Law of Nations defines the term of art ‘natural born citizen’ as one born in the country [to] parents who are that country’s citizens.”
“Plaintiff Michael C. Voeltz has standing, as a Florida voter, and taxpayer, to challenge the ‘nomination or election of any person to office’ based on the winning candidates’ eligibility for the office sought. … The state of Florida has chosen, by popular election, the electors for Defendant Barack Hussein Obama to be president … Plaintiff has fulfilled all aspects of the Florida election statutes for this challenge of eligibility, as to timing, venue, and indispensable parties.”
The timing of the case was made at this point in time before the Florida electors cast their formal vote for president. The lawsuit asks that upon a:
“Judicial determination of the ineligibility of Barack Hussein Obama to serve as president … and to certify the electors for Mitt Romney as the winner.”
If by some rare chance a judge rules on law in this case, Barack Hussein Obama should be declared to be ineligible to hold the office and that Florida electors would have to go to Mitt Romney. A cascade of similar lawsuits could then result in an overturn of the election for the first time in US history.
However, as much as l would love to see this happen, I am not going to hold my breath for it to happen. The Obama administration is far too corrupt to allow such a ruling to happen. They will do everything possible to coerce or threaten any judge who would dare rule against Obama, regardless of what the law and Constitution say, and thus ends the last freedom recourse we have as voters short of another revolution.
