7/28/2009: Commentary: Military Personnel Preparing Challenges to Obama Eligibility; House Passes Resoultion acknowleging Obama's Birth In Hawaii, Heading For The Senate:
Behind the scenes, at many military bases across the country and around the world, a not-too quiet challenge is developing against Barack Obama and his questionable qualifications to be President of the United States.
Most Constitutionalists are familiar with the ongoing civil litigation against Obama. Plaintiffs claim he is not constitutionally qualified to be president because he does not meet the legal description of a “natural-born citizen.”
Obama’s lawyers have never entered pleadings on the MERITS of the plaintiffs’ cases. They oppose the plaintiffs’ suits on the issue of “standing.” They claim the plaintiffs do not have a right to sue. Generally, that “standing” claim is well-founded. Giving every citizen the right to sue the president would be a nightmare. Can you imagine George Bush defending 10,000,000 individual suits by Dems over the war in Iraq?
BUT... recently, one plaintiff had a strong chance of being given “standing to sue.” The plaintiff was an Army Reserve Major, Stefan Frederick Cook, from the Tampa area. His call-up to active duty positioned him as a person who could demonstrate the likelihood of real damages if Obama was not a legally-elected president. Cook could be killed, wounded or even charged as a war criminal if Obama was not legally the president.
He sued, claiming Obama was not legally qualified to be President, not legally qualified to order him to do anything.
The judge was set to begin preliminary hearings when the government lawyers dropped a legal bomb. They canceled Maj. Cook’s orders for the obvious purpose of denying him standing. With Major Cook longer on activation orders, the case was moot and was dismissed by the judge.
This hugely significant legal surrender by the government was noticed by every lawyer in the country watching this issue. It also immediately became an enormous topic of conversation in every barracks in America. If Obama was willing to cancel one soldiers deployment orders because of a court challenge to his right to be president, what would he do the next time someone raised the issue?
As a result, service members and lawyers began action immediately. It is believed that as many as 100 lawyers are preparing to file litigation such as Maj. Cook’s. This litigation would be in many courts across the country and put a huge strain on the Obama-DNC legal team. Do they cancel 100 sets of orders this week, only to face 1000 suits next week?
Even worse, sources close to some of the potential litigants state that at least four lawyers, including one very well known conservative Vietnam veteran lawyer, are seeking enough clients so they can petition the court for the establishment of a Class of Plaintiffs in a proposed class action case. If that happens, then every military service member on orders would be covered.
At that point, Obama has no viable legal option. He has proven himself unwilling to try the case on its merits, and willing to cancel orders to avoid having to face discovery. How can he be POTUS and CINC if he cannot issue orders to the military he claims to command?
From there, every time Obama tries to act under color of law in any matter, military of not, someone sues and Obama’s action ceases.
This is an important turning point in a case of incredible constitutional and legal significance. In the meantime another clash is brewing within the Congress. <>Things move fast in Congress and, in this case, even faster as expected. President Obama's birth is part of a recognition of Hawaii's 50th anniversary of statehood.
(Washington, DC) - The U.S. House today gave unanimous approval to a resolution recognizing and celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the entry of Hawaii into the Union as the 50th State. The resolution was introduced by Rep. Neil Abercrombie and cosponsored by Rep. Mazie K. Hirono.
The actual anniversary date for Hawaii’s entry into the union is August 21st, however Congress will not be in session, so the resolution was scheduled for a vote of the House today. Senator Daniel Inouye will introduce a similar resolution in the Senate tomorrow, cosponsored by Daniel K. Akaka.
Recognizing and celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the entry of Hawaii into the Union as the 50th State.
Whereas August 21, 2009, marks the 50th Anniversary of President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s signing of Proclamation 3309, which admitted Hawaii into the Union in compliance with the Hawaii Admission Act, enacted by the United States Congress on March 18, 1959;
Whereas Hawaii is `a place like no other, with a people like no other’ and bridges the mainland United States to the Asia-Pacific region;
Whereas the 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama, was born in Hawaii on August 4, 1961:
The final vote was 378-0, with 55 Representatives (35 Democrats and 20 Republicans Not voting.

This one is bound to get Orly Taitz’s head spinning but there is a hidden danger here. If the Military does bring this to light in a Court and Obama is instructed to produce all the records required and or asked for, the members of the Congress in both the House and Senate MIGHT be libel for prosecution, aiding and abetting, if Obama is found to be a fraud. I would say this is going to be a very interesting event, to say the least!!!! Inouye and Akaka should be updated as to what is going on and then let them step into the Snake Pit if they so wish.
