Obama Birth Certificate filed in Citizenship Case

In the case of Army Captain Pamela Barnett v. Barrack Hussein Obama, Attorney Orly Taitz has filed a copy of Obama’s birth certificate in the US District Court in Santa Ana, California in preparation for court trial January 26, 2010.

The certificate shows Obama was born August 4, 1961 in Coast General Hospital, Mombasa, Kenya. If Obama attorneys cannot produce a valid US birth certificate, then Obama cannot be president and may even be deported back to his native Kenya.

This blog may be verified by contacting the Santa Ana Federal Court, or Atty. Taitz at 949-683-5411, e-mail dr_taitz@yahoo.com. Contrary to the belief of liberals one cannot be a US President unless they were born in the US.

PolitiFact, a political fact-checking feature done by the St. Petersburg Times, has reported convincingly, and in some detail, that this was a forgery. Taitz and her peeps evidently used a Kenyan birth certificate an Australian man had posted on a genealogy web site. Google "politifact kenyan birth certificate" for more -- unless of course you have something better to do with your time.

There is no "Kenyan birth certificate an Australian man had posted on a genealogy web site". No Australian man posted a Kenyan birth certificate online. There is however a Kenyan birth certificate which allegedly is based on that of a South Australian man -- called the Bomford template document. A blogger has claimed to be able to fake the embossed seal using a 2-shilling coin. But, this only shows the first document Orly Taitz had needs forensic scrutiny.

Taitz has another, more recently acquired document, the Lucas Smith "footprint" BC. Which is a first generation photocopy of an original Kenyan BC. An affidavit of sorts indicating existence of an original, held in custody of the Kenyan Government. A first generation photocopy won't show details of a footprint, but it has a blue ink stamp, indicating it is not a second generation copy.

Ok, there are pictures of Obama in Africa right? He had to have a passport. Surely there are records of the documentation he submitted to get a US passport. To my knowledge a valid US Birth certificate is required...or if you have naturalization documents instead those are accepted. Which did he submit?

Also, btw. It is not a requirement to be born in the US to be president. That is a myth. You must only be "natural born". When I was a kid some texts stated that meant you could be born on a military base in another country, but actually the legal definition of "natural born" is that you must not be required to go though naturalization. So a report of birth abroad is aceptable. But this doesn't help Obama since his parents were not both US citizens, which is a requirement for the RoBA.

It involves a judge right here in good ole' Georgia...a Bush appointee no less!

COLUMBUS, Ga. (AP) -- A federal judge in Georgia fined a leader of the movement challenging President Barack Obama's citizenship and warned her against using the legal system to pursue ''political rhetoric and insults.''

U.S. District Judge Clay D. Land's scathing 43-page order Tuesday said California lawyer and dentist Orly Taitz filed ''frivolous'' litigation and attempted to misuse the federal courts to push a political agenda.

Taitz, a leader of the so-called birther movement, sued in Georgia federal court on behalf of Army Capt. Connie Rhodes. Rhodes sought to avoid deployment to Iraq by claiming Obama wasn't born in the U.S. and that he was ''an illegal usurper, unlawful pretender and unqualified impostor.''

Documents show the president was born in Hawaii.

Land, appointed in 2001 by President George W. Bush, had already dismissed the lawsuit, but Taitz continued filing motions. He said he fined her $20,000 ''as a deterrent to prevent future misconduct and to protect the integrity of the court.''

''The absolute absence of any legitimate legal argument, combined with the political diatribe in her motions, demonstrates that Ms. Taitz's purpose is to advance a political agenda and not to pursue a legitimate legal cause of action,'' Land wrote.

He added that while Taitz's speech is protected by the First Amendment, ''the federal courts are reserved for hearing genuine legal disputes, not as a platform for political rhetoric and insults.''

Taitz told The Daily Report that Land's order is ''an absolute outrage.''

''All I can say is that this order is issued with a goal to intimidate me, harass me and retaliate against me for bringing a legitimate action on behalf of my client,'' she said.

so that they can pass a bill requiring all Presidential candidates to produce the long form BC for public view. That will put Mr. Obama in the really uncomfortable position to either produce one or veto the bill. It is VERY interesting that he has also not made public his college records. I can't wait. This should all be very interesting.

Yes the Republicans needs lots of wins in 2010 to stabilize Congress and neuter this out of control rookie President - just like 1994.

But to dream about a birth certificate scandal is really a waste of time. If the Kenyan birth certificate this attorney filed with the court is real it would have leaked years ago. Besides, you don't file things with the court way ahead of time. If he had that would have leaked as well. Quit dreaming about something silly and work to get rid of Prezbo's enablers in Congress.

I don't believe a Republican majority is reachable, but I'd settle for some more sensible Democrats. Don't care if they want to have abortions, just focus on some financial responsibility and stop drinking the Kool Aid.

I must admit that while I haven't followed this matter closely, it's impossible to avoid it entirely.

Like just about everyone, I don't have any personal knowledge, whether Obama was born in the US or not. I mean, I wasn't there, wherever "there" may have been.

But assuming that he was born in, say, Kenya, the fact remains that he did grow up in the US. So, I was wondering if someone out there could tell me how he got here, if he was in fact born abroad?

Obama should have supplied all up front

I am not for or against Obama. What I would like is for him to supply the same documents that all past presidents and candidates had to produce. McCain proff of birth,military records,tax returns,medical records etc. Palin had to even produce medical records for the birth of her last child. Correct me if i am wrong.When Obama was asked for a birth certificate he posted something on his web site,and people in Hawaii verify they saw it but it was not released, When asked for his medical records he submitted a 1 page letter from a doctor stating he was in good health, he froze all his school records.
He was applying for a top position and should have produced what was required. If you apply for a job and you are asked to supply certain documentation you do it if you want the job.
i did not vote for obama the reason being the more he spoke the more confused I became on where he stood. I did not vote for Mccain for the same reason.
I know they both have ideas and made promises but if congress does not go along not of the ideas or promises will come to light.
Bush was not this countries problem, Obama is not the problem Congress is and always will be unless we vote them all out. The president is only a whipping post.

As I've already stated. I supplied this same type "short form" BC to my insurance company to verify my son as a dependent. It was rejected. I was required to supply the long form BC. Yet you and many others readily accept it for a president that hides so much already. And as I've also already stated if Obama ever claimed citizenship in another country he lost his natural born status (if he ever had it) and eligibility to be president. Many believe that he did just that. Get it?

Seriously, get a life and wake up. I don't know how many conservative and even beyond far right commentators and columnists have told the birthers just how WRONG they are, WHY they are wrong, and they still don't have a clue. They are simply wasting the oxygen we all need to live.

If some raving idiot got in my face with some accusing words asking for my birth certificate, I'd tell them to go pound sand and enjoy spending 10's of thousands of dollars on legal fees trying to get me to produce it. FactCheck has seen it and they are about as independent and neutral as it gets in the political arena. Many others have seen it that are believed to be impeachable. The idea that a conspiracy could be so vast and so well-planned for decades and no one blow the whistle is ludicrous.

I give credit to Obama for jerking these morons around. Make them spend tons of money and waste their time and look like conspiracy nuts. I can almost guarantee you that 95% of the birther crowd uses the words "Ruby Ridge" at least once a week.

Presidential candidates have an obligation to show that they meet Constitutional requirements. That's all I ask. Show us the freaking birth certificate! Not the CERTIFICATE OF LIVE BIRTH. THE REAL THING!!!!! This issue is not going away. I believe it will have to be answered in court. I love how people who simply want the law to be followed get called names like "birthers" from the likes of Chris Matthews, etc. I think because BO had a father who was not from here, he has a special obligatgion to show where he was from. I can't believe that anyone in this country is not a little bit suspicious about BO's evasiveness.

CAVEAT: Please pay close attention to semantics.
When FactCheck claims they "saw, held, examined the REAL BIRTH CERTIFICATE", what they actual saw, held and examined, is the AUTHENTIC AND GENUINE CERTIFICATION OF LIVE BIRTH. Did you catch the difference? Notice how I embellished that statement with big words like "authentic and genuine"? You see in truth, FactCheck, never got near even a copy of the Barack Obama, birth certificate (the document signed by doctors, and stamped as it was processed, and filed. So, although FactCheck, tells the truth, they tell a parallel, but misleading truth. BTW -- Check to see how your state records births and what sort of birth certificates are issued and do not let them give you a computer generated false record.

I am awake and have never used the term "Ruby Ridge" but I am proud to be a BIRTHER and I would hope that anyone who cares about the Constitution of our once great country would be too.

You are forgetting that this so called "conspiracy" did not have to run for decades only for the last couple of years - when people began to ask questions. And the Birthers may be spending thousands of dollars in legal fees to try to get him to produce it - but Obama has spent over ONE MILLION dollars to keep his records private. I have not asked an Obama supporter yet, including my own sister, who has been able to give me an answer as to why he does not want to release these documents. Your answer, to torment the Right is a weak answer, considering the amount of money and trouble spent, common sense says there is something there that he does not want the American public to see. I would want him to release it if I supported him! The Constitution is more important than the President, unless you are the arrogant ONE.

For anyone wanting a complete understanding of the "Certificate of Live Birth" issued by the state of Hawaii that the White House wants us to accepts as Obama's official birth certificate - please go to


and read "Clearing the Smoke on Obama’s Eligibility: An Intelligence Investigator’s June 10 Report"
This is a rather lengthy report but it explains in great detail why us Birthers do not accept the COLB as having any more value than the paper it is written on.

My own opinion as to why the 12 or so cases have been dismissed in Obama's favor has nothing to do with these judges protecting the Constitution - in fact, far from it. They are absolutely scared to to their bones of the fallout from and impeachment, or making the election results of America's first BLACK President null. Once again it is about race. I know now for saying this people will call me racist, that's fine. A very smart man a long time ago said what people call you is not important: It is what you answer to. So it comes down to this:

Do we as a nation defend and protect our Constitution and let the chips fall where they may? Or do we run in fear as these judges have ? If we choose to run and not stop and fight and defend -where does it stop I ask you?

And the mainstream media's complicity in this by refusing to even bring up why he is spending all this money to keep his records sealed and just accepting the COLB and FactCheck.org is just unbelievable! I can understand the usual Obama outlets, NBC, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, CBS but when Fox News won't even run the story want gives? I mean is this guy completely untouchable? Are we living in old Russia, where the media is controlled by the politicians?

I am truly fearful for the future of our once great nation. I am 51 years old and I can probably slug it out no matter how bad it gets but I have a beautiful 14 year old daughter who we have taught good values to of God, Country, Family and study hard and work hard and the sky the limit in a great country like ours - Used to be true. Her mother and father and grandparents were examples of that. She has a 4.0 GPA so far. But with a plan like Obama's, I'm not sure it will matter anymore. I'm afraid he is going to screw this country up so bad that it will never recover. It won't matter how hard you study or work -the slackers will get just as much out of life as the ass-busters and risk takers.

Obama has proven his citizenship at least twice, first when he got his passport and again when he filed his papers to run for the Presidency. It's not an issue for him.

As to his supporters wanting him to release it, why on earth would they? Reread these posts here. Birthers are the fringiest group of all. They don't believe the State Department which accepted the proof of citizenship for his passport, they don't believe the Federal Election Commission, they don't believe the state of Hawaii, they don't believe the MSM, and they don't even believe the Republican Party's news organization.

However, they do believe that Obama hasn't complied with the Constitutional requirements to hold office, even though that has been certified; they believe that Hawaii is involved with a vast conspiracy along with every federal judge that hears these cases; they believe that the media, including FOX, is controlled by the government, and they are quick to believe in this Kenyan birth certificate that has already proven to be a fake.

Furthermore, the birthers seem unable to grasp even the basics of how government and the Constitution work. If Obama were to be proven not to be a citizen, which isn't going to happen, he would not then be removed from office. The only way to remove a President is through impeachment. If there was an impeachment bill introduced, which isn't going to happen, then the Dems would never let it get out of committee. If there was an impeachment trial in the Senate, there would never be enough votes to approve it. If Obama were to be impeached, what would happen? That doesn't make McCain President as was written here. It makes Joe Biden President and then he selects a new VP.

In short, the birthers believe things that are demonstrably untrue (Obama hasn't produced proof of citizenship), are credulous and gullible (the proven fake Kenyan birth certificate), are willing to contort reality in bizarre ways to rationalize their conspiracy theory (Hawaii, US government, media, all the Federal judges are in on it), and fail to grasp the real outcome if they win (Joe Biden becomes President).

For Obama supporters, the birthers are the gift that keeps on giving. Their job is to tie the birthers to the Republican Party and portray them as mainstream representatives of the right to demonstrate how the Party has been taken over by the lunatic fringe.

Common sense? We are discussing modern politics, aren't we?

I agree that the Dems have some embarrassing fringe groups like MoveOn. However, I don't think the Republicans have been very successful portraying them as leaders in mainstream Democratic politics.

The Dems, on the other hand, have been very successful in portraying the ordinary Republican Party leaders as captivated by, cowering from and catering to their fringe base.

Here's a bunch of Republican Congressmen afraid to cross the birthers:

Capital Hill Doesn't Know If Obama Is A Natural Born Citizen

Really now, do you think that any of these Congressmen actually believe the birthers conspiracy? Of course not, they wouldn't be Congressmen if they were that stupid. (OK, I can't back that up but it might be true). No. What they are doing is cowering, not wanting to irritate a significant part of their base.

Take the birthers; add Palin's deathers; add the bowing and scraping for Rush; tie in the rabids like Savage and the stupids like Laura Ingram; the one trick ponies, radical on single issues, like Tancredo; the apocalypse prophets like Beck; etc., and the Dems have a super rich environment in which to define the Republican Party's philosophy as way outside the way normal people perceive reality. And I think they've done a really good job of it; far, far superior to the Republican's attempts to define the Democratic Party.

You've got more faith in the Independents than I do. We only need to sway 5%.

BTW: There's a very interesting analysis circulating comparing the talk shows influence on voting (practically nil) to the perception of their influence by Rep. Party leaders (very high), which causes them to cater to a base far to the right of the voters who can be influenced. Next time I run across it I'll post it for you.

"In 2005, Jamie Leigh Jones was gang-raped by her co-workers while she was working for Halliburton/KBR in Baghdad. She was detained in a shipping container for at least 24 hours without food, water, or a bed, and “warned her that if she left Iraq for medical treatment, she’d be out of a job .” (Jones was not an isolated case .) Jones was prevented from bringing charges in court against KBR because her employment contract stipulated that sexual assault allegations would only be heard in private arbitration.

Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) proposed an amendment to the 2010 Defense Appropriations bill that would withhold defense contracts from companies like KBR “if they restrict their employees from taking workplace sexual assault, battery and discrimination cases to court.”

His amendment passed the Senate by a 68-30 vote, but 30 Republican members voted against it, including John McCain and our own Saxby Chambliss and Johnny Isakson.


30 Republicans for Rape

Remember, it is still "alleged rape", however just last week, the Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans ruled that her case will get a jury trial. It is still a shameful display of inaction on the part of our legal system. And the Franken amdt didn't say "companies like KBR", it specifically named them but then went on to include any other company/contractor who made employees sign an agreement to solve complaints via arbitration. I'm guessing if they had left out any specific company name and just made it a blanket statement, the vote just may have been different. Regardless,I'd like to hear the rationale used by those who voted "no". And it's a stretch to categorize those who voted "no" as being "for rape"---and you know it's a stretch.

...I'd say that this good 'ol boys club of 30 Republican Senators, primarily from the south of course, are sending the clear message that the rights of government contractors are far more important than those of rape victims.

One Senator, John McCain, even thinks that the topic of rape is so funny that he finds it acceptable to tell jokes about it.

"McCain's specific jokes can be harder for some to stomach. ...reported in the Tucson Citizen, an Arizona paper, during his 1986 Senate campaign: "Did you hear the one about the woman who is attacked on the street by a gorilla, beaten senseless, raped repeatedly and left to die? When she finally regains consciousness and tries to speak, her doctor leans over to hear her sigh contently and to feebly ask, 'Where is that marvelous ape?'"

My point being that there is an ingrained culture of misogyny, racism, homophobia and xenophobia within the Republican party and I don't see any positive attributes within the GOP anymore. As Jeff pointed out, the R's have become a party of right-wing "fringers" and conspiracy theorists, swimming far outside the main stream.

Can't you understand it's not just about rape? And the case in question is still "alleged" NOT proven factual. The jury trial will decide that. And regardless of what Jones signed, the US DOJ still had jurisdiction and though it took much longer than it should have, she will have her day in court.

Yes, nuts like that give liberals a bad name which is why I have advised the "birthers" to employ reason - I fear that they give a bad name to anyone who swings a little to the right. It is important to realize that those like Bill Mahr do not represent all liberals anymore than Limbaugh represents all conservatives.

We knew everything there was to know about "Joe the Plummer" in a very short time. Nothing is going to come of this birth certificate controversy because of the war that would follow. Do we even know what kind of grades he made in college? Do we know if he actually attended college? We know just about everything about our past presidents. Why can't we see all of his official paperwork ie longform birth certificate, high school and college transcripts. I ask again What is he hiding?

It's obvious that back in August of 1961 the Rockefeller's and the Trilateral commission and probably some unknown Jewish bankers, all of whom are in the secret cabal which REALLY controls the world, got together a picked out this black baby in Kenya and decided that they would make him President of the United States one day. So they got together and placed birth announcements in not one, but two! Hawaiian newspapers and somehow coerced the hospital in Hawaii to fake a birth certificate for the child and also bought off the State of Hawaii.

Now this showed extraordinary foresight. If you remember back to 1961 you will surely be struck by the audacity of the scheme! Who would have ever thought back then to come up with such a plan for a black Kenyan baby. Talk about a forward vision! It was a breathtaking plan. Really, if you think about it, shocking in its conception and diabolically clever in its execution. Remember, this was at the very beginning of integration; back in '61. Just a few years after Rosa told that bus driver that her feet hurt and she wasn't going to move to the back of the bus and two years before(!) Martin had his dream and gave a speech about it.

The effrontery of the plan is simply astonishing and you've just got to give props to whoever thought it up in the first place.

Now, I know that some people scoff at the unlikeliness of it all. But to those who see the TRUTH!, to those who have not let themselves become overwhelmed by rational thought, Obama's presidency itself is proof that the plan is real and the cabal that implemented it is fantastically powerful. You might ask, if they have so much power, why don't they rule the world? The answer, of course, is that they do! They just choose to remain hidden and pull their puppets strings.

Obama's presidency by itself is proof of their reach and power. How else can you explain the little Kenyan baby's birth announcements in two Hawaiian newspapers and his birth records in the hospital files? What other possible explanation can there be?

And now, after all of that, we find you posting links to propaganda web sites trying to explain why the long form birth certificate has not been produced. As if such a silly and minor thing would have been overlooked and could not be instantly rectified! So what I want to know (and I promise not to tell anybody) is, how long have you been part of the conspiracy?

Actually Jeff, I went to high school and college with those persons who concocted this conspiracy - and they allowed me to become a member. They assured me that before long, my standing as a black women would change - and I might even be allowed to vote in Georgia one day without having to count the jelly beans in a large jar! (Those were the days when I had to use a 'colored' restroom.) I really thought they were out of their minds about the Kenyan child who would one day become the President of the US. But these guys and gals were true visionaries. In 61, the most integrated place on earth for 'black leaders' was the military.. . .and the thought of a 'black' president was unheard of!! But my friends, the visionaries were way ahead of the game. They made sure that the mother was from the 'heartland' of the US - and had very tolerant parents. But please Jeff, don't tell anyone . . it is still a secret. (They're working on a woman president AND a woman Secretary of State serving at the same time!! Revolutionary!! Keep your promise - and please don't tell anyone!!

But here's the problem. David's Mom is not a Judge. Obama's Kenya birth certificate states the mother's name as Stanley Ann Obama and the father's name as Barack Hussein Obama. Baby's name as Barack II. At the time of birth mother & father were married under the name of Obama and living in Kenya. Confucius say, "if you want US President, don't vote for illegal alien from Kenya". GET IT!

"The first section of the second article of the Constitution uses the language "a natural-born citizen." It thus assumes that citizenship may be acquired by birth. Undoubtedly, this language of the Constitution was used in reference to that principle of public law, well understood in the history of this country at the time of the adoption of the Constitution, which referred Citizenship to the place of birth. At the Declaration of Independence, and ever since, the received general doctrine has been, in conformity with the common law, that free persons born within either of the colonies, were the subjects of the King; that by the Declaration of independence, and the consequent acquisition of sovereignty by the several States, all such persons ceased to be subjects, and became citizens of the several States, [...] .
The Constitution having recognized that persons born within the several States are citizens of the United States, one of four things must be true:
First. That the constitution itself has described what native-born persons shall or shall not be citizens of such State, and thereby be citizens of the United States; or,
Second:. That it has empowered Congress to do so; or,
Third. That all free persons, born within the several States, are citizens of the United States; or,
Fourth. That it is left to each State to determine what free persons, born within its limits, shall be citizens of such State, and thereby be citizens of the United States.
If there is such a thing as Citizenship of the United States acquired by birth within the States, which the Constitution expressly recognizes, and no one denies, then those four alternatives embrace the entire subject, and it only remains to select that one which is true."

Just because his Mother is a Citizen does not make him a Citizen unless born IN THE UNITED STATES..

I stand corrected. . but Hawaii is a state. Right? Smiling I don't think Obama's mother was a psychic - and wanted proof that her son was not born in Kenya just in case he ran for the Senate or the presidency. It is surprising that some even went to the effort to forge a Kenyan birth certificate. Sad.

I know where the "birthers" are coming from.. It flows from injustice.. That feeling you get when a younger more physically fit person gets the promotion you yourself is a hundred times more qualified for.

If they flaunt it in your face you tend to let's say assist in their failures.

Some of it is racial.. absolutely... Some of it's not my guy syndrome, but some of it's real.. Some wants the Constitution to mean something..
I have talked to a few of the latter and a few of the former.. Like all groups it is made up of individuals. Warts and all.

The truly sad part about all this is I think the controversy is contrived.. Meant to separate us divide and conquer... and all that. That is why the BC was never released and still today a type of BC most times not accepted is presented as factual.. Keeps everyone polarized.

Personnally.. as I said.. I want him to stay right where he is.. The Enemy I know and all that..

In trying to define natural born status I did some research. I found this analysis to be the closest thing to a condensed version of it that I could find. If you pay attention to Number 5 it states that even if a citizen is born a citizen he can not keep natural born status if he ever claims citizenship to another country which many believe Obama has done. I can find nothing that claims natural born status solely based on the mother being a citizen. Now having said this I agree that the case will be thrown out of court. Because to over throw the Obama presidency now would cause more problems than it's worth. My commentary ends here. The rest of this post is from the source noted below.


Wong Kim Ark Analysis


From reading all the material on the subject of natural born citizens I can’t help but conclude the following:

1) Citizens of united states was never properly defined by the framers mainly because only state law could define whom were born a citizen of the state which in return automatically made them a citizen of the united states under article 4.

2) Congress in 1866 recognized not all states recognized people of color as citizens and set out to define who were citizens of the united states through statute and amendment to the constitution.

3) Congress decided to recognize all persons born or naturalized as citizens of the united states as long as they could not be claimed as subjects of another country.

4) The 14th amendment was clearly designed to recognized only those politically attached to the nation (citizens) and no other.

5) Just as a naturalized citizen cannot be claimed by any other foreign power as their citizens, neither can anyone born.

Obama cannot be a citizen of the united states under the true meaning behind born or naturalized subject to the jurisdiction of the united states. Justice Gray himself confirmed this in Elk v Wilkins writing for the majority in defining subject to the jurisdiction as political attachment and not mere place of birth. This was in perfect agreement with acts of congress of 1866, 1868 and 1874.

This crazy notion that place of birth controls citizenship is so contrary to written law makes you wonder how so many got carried away with such an easily debunked belief.

While I think this is a dead issue, just because you're an American citizen, it doesn't make you eligible to be president. There's that born in the USA thingy to deal with.

And think about this:
No matter what nightmarish scenario would follow in such a chain of events (and I'm not a birther by any measure, okay?), it would be extremely unlikely that any of the stand-ins would be black. That means that we can criticize the elected officials again without being dismissed as racists! That's huge. I'd also like to again argue with my esteemed opponents without dealing with the almost religious fanaticism that Obama supporters seem to have. Maybe the political debate could then return to the usual brand of insanity rather than the completely hysterical tone we've seen over the last year or so.

While a few recent comments explore various scenarios for who might be President after NObama is exposed for ineligibility, there is actually a superceding issue to all of this - which also answers the question.

The *correct* new Administration would/will be a fully Joint Administration, comprised of the top remaining candidates from the two largest American political parties, as the new Prez and VP... i.e., McCain as Prez and Hillary as VP, or the reverse of that, or even remotely possibly McCain and Obama (however unlikely in the wake of the impostor status finally revealed...) -- all of which is the perfectly correct and legal mandatory result from properly striking down the Twelfth Amendment, during the unfolding of this ongoing NObama qualification case, into the larger matter for all America.

What? You already forgot your American History, in that from the very beginning, even through and during the Civil War, and past that, all of sudden finally stopping in the 1870s, we ALWAYS had our President and Vice-President coming from the TWO largest political parties???

Yes, that's right. The 2008 Election result *should* have been only one of two legal possibilities (notwithstanding Obama's impostor citizenship issue), once the Dems and Reps finalized their nominees:
-- either Obama would be Prez and McCain would be VP
-- or McCain would be Prez and Obama would be VP

And, even if NOT striking down the Twelfth Amendment in this same process, the last Election *still* gets redone, because the existing (evil) Twelfth Amendment requires *DISTINCT* voting for the Vice-President (NO "running mates" allowed!!), meaning we might end up with:
-- McCain and Biden
-- Baldwin and Palin
-- Baldwin and Biden
-- Hillary and Palin
-- etc.

Read your American History, plus the current Twelfth Amendment to the Federal Constitution, plus what it replaced: Article II, Section 1, Paragraph 3...

You'll figure it out.

However, the government will do what it damn well pleases. If the court rules that Obama was born in Kenya, the government might just as well say, it doesn’t matter. But, from the academic stand point, Biden wouldn’t become president because he’s illegally elected VP. What should happen is that either McCain would be declared President as being the only viable, legal candidate or we’ll have another election call. Otherwise, God forbid, Nancy Pelosi become President. Now, that’s very scary Halloween.

If the current VP becomes President, I believe the new President chooses a new VP and that choice must then be approved by both Houses of Congress.
