OBJECTORS SEEKING JUDGMENT TO KEEP OBAMA OFF BALLOT FOR ALLEGED INELIGIBILITY – DISMISSED “ON JURISDICTIONAL GROUNDS”
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – 01 MAR 2012
PA ATTORNEY KAREN L. KIEFER TODAY CHALLENGED IN COURT A ‘NOMINATION PETITION OBJECTION’ IN THE COMMONWEALTH COURT OF PA IN HARRISBURG PA ON BEHALF OF ‘OBJECTORS’ CHARLES KERCHNER AND DALE LAUDENSLAGER CHALLENGING THE BALLOT ACCESS PETITION FOR CANDIDATE BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA
Objectors Charles Kerchner and Dale Laudenslager, concerned citizens of Pennsylvania, residents of and duly registered members of the electorate, along with their Attorney Karen L. Kiefer, brought a challenge at 10:00AM today, Thursday, March 1st, in the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania in Harrisburg PA, seeking a judgment to have Candidate Barack Hussein Obama’s nomination petition or papers set aside due to his failure to meet the ‘natural born citizen’ constitutional eligibility requirements of the office he seeks.
Charles Kerchner, the lead plaintiff/objector and a retired Navy Commander, explained that after several years of research, it has been determined that Candidate Obama is not eligible to hold the office of President and Commander-in-Chief of the military because “he is not a natural-born citizen according to the U.S. Constitution.” “We are a nation of immigrants but Candidate Obama’s father was not one of them.” He said. “Until Candidate Obama came along, no President since the founding generation has had a foreign-born father who never immigrated to the USA.” Obama’s father was never a U.S. Citizen nor even wanted to be one and returned to his native country of Kenya after a few years sojourning in the USA on a student visa while attending college. Candidate Obama was born a British Subject/Citizen via his foreign-national, non-U.S. Citizen father and a basic U.S. Citizen via his mother and thus was born with dual-citizenship and not sole allegiance at birth to the USA. A dual-citizen at birth is not a ‘natural born citizen of the United States’ to constitutional standards.
A ‘natural born citizen’ is someone born in the country from parents that are both U.S. Citizens (born or naturalized). The founders reasoned that unity of citizenship and sole allegiance at birth to one nation and only one nation was a prerequisite to the office of President and Commander-in-Chief. This requirement was entered into the U.S. Constitution for national security reasons as a “strong check against foreign influence” and allegiance claims via birth status on the person who would be the Commander of our armies and the President, according to John Jay’s letter to George Washington, the presiding officer of the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia PA in 1787. George Washington later became the first President under the new Constitution. John Jay later became the first Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court under the new Constitution.
A ‘natural born citizen’ is a 2nd generation American via both parents, i.e., both parents must be U.S. Citizens (born or naturalized in the parents’ case) when their child is born in the USA. The office of President and Vice President are the only elected offices in the USA which require under our Constitution that the person must be a ‘natural born citizen’ to be eligible for those offices. A first generation U.S. Citizen can hold any other elected office. But the person who would be President and Commander of our armies, per the U.S. Constitution, must be a natural born citizen, i.e., a 2nd generation U.S. Citizen via both parents when born in the USA.
Pennsylvania was the keystone state in the birth of our Republic and the drafting of the U.S. Constitution and other founding documents. Let not Pennsylvania be any part of the death of our U.S. Constitution and Republic.
Obama slipped through the vetting system cracks as to his constitutional eligibility in the 2008 primaries. But he will not be permitted to get by without being properly vetted in the 2012 primaries as to his exact citizenship status and true legal identity.
Update, March 1, 2012, 9:02 p.m. ET: From CDR Charles F. Kerchner, Jr.’s blog:
Without reaching the merits of the challenge, Pennsylvania Judge Keith B. Quigley dismissed the ballot challenge lodged against Barack Hussein Obama II by Charles Kerchner and fellow Pennsylvanian Dale Laudenslager.
The Candidate’s Affidavit in PA is routinely signed under oath stating the candidate is eligible for the office they seek. Candidate Barack Obama did not sign under oath the Candidate’s Affidavit which states that he was eligible for the office he is seeking. He did not even sign it at all. The top half was filled out by a lawyer on his behalf and the bottom part with the signatures was left blank. It was subsequently learned that a Pennsylvania statute provides an exception for presidential candidates that they do not have to complete the Candidate Affidavit, and Obama availed himself of that exception. Hmmh, I wonder why. Other presidential candidates such as Mitt Romney, Ron Paul, and Rick Santorum signed the sworn affidavit stating they were eligible for the office they seek. But since Obama did not sign his, and under PA law he did not have to, it gave Obama an escape hatch in that Obama was not claiming to PA that he was eligible for the office he seeks and thus the court said it did not have any jurisdiction over his eligibility and dismissed the case. The court refused to hear any arguments from the objectors’ attorney, Karen L. Kiefer, that Obama has not proven to any controlling legal authority his exact citizenship status or true legal identity. The court ruled that it is not their jurisdiction to determine candidate eligibility and legal identity for presidents and dismissed the case. So once again we see that no one in the entire USA is willing to assume the responsibility for vetting presidential candidates and thus a fraud like Obama gets away with his criminal identity fraud and as a result of the PA challenge being dismissed, he will thus get another crack in PA to continue his usurpation of the Oval Office and ignoring of the U.S. Constitution, Article II Section 1.
