Thousands of urgent appeals for the U.S. Supreme Court to consider the question of Barack Obama’s eligibility to be president of the United States are being delivered to the justices as part of WND’s campaign to seek the truth.
The high court has conferences scheduled on cases addressing Obama’s eligibility tomorrow and again on Jan. 23. They cite Article 2, Section 1 of the Constitution, which stipulates the office of president can only be filled by “a natural born citizen.”
Because the Supreme Court justices do not accept faxes, e-mails or telephone calls, WND assembled an option for a delivery of letters through FedEx, and 1,344 people signed up to send a message to the justices, resulting in 12,096 messages.
The campaign was a followup to one in December that generated more than 60,000 letters sent by overnight courier to the nine Supreme Court justices. That campaign resulted in 60,138 letters in 6,682 FedEx packages of nine letters each.
“If we didn’t do everything possible to let the Supreme Court justices know what a concern this is to millions of Americans, I would feel like I was letting down the Constitution and the men who framed it – not to mention every citizen of the United States living now and in the future,” said Joseph Farah, WND’s founder and editor. “This constitutional eligibility test has become a key issue with me because if the plain language of the Constitution is no longer taken seriously by our nation’s controlling legal authorities, we have become an outlaw nation – no longer under the rule of law but under the rule of men.”
Join more than 200,000 others in signing WND’s online petition calling for release of Barack Obama’s birth certificate and verifying beyond any shadow of a doubt his constitutional eligibility for office.
Farah personally drafted the letter for the justices as part of an effort that also includes a petition drive that calls on all controlling legal authorities to ensure the Constitution is followed on the question of eligibility and for full public disclosure of the facts of Obama’s birthplace and parentage.
Obama has claimed in his autobiography and elsewhere that he was born in Hawaii in 1961 to parents Barack Hussein Obama Sr., a Kenyan national, and Stanley Ann Dunham, a minor. But details about which hospital handled the birth and other details provided on the complete birth certificate have been withheld by Obama despite lawsuits and public demands for release.
The letters read:
Dear Associate Justice ______:
If the Constitution doesn’t mean precisely what it says, then America is no longer a nation under the rule of law.
A nation no longer under the rule of law is, by definition, under the rule of men.
Article 2, Section 1 of the Constitution clearly stipulates “No person except a natural born Citizen” shall be eligible to serve as president of the United States. That statement has clear meaning, and the Supreme Court of the United States is one of the controlling legal authorities in ensuring that the Constitution is enforced – even if doing so may prove awkward.
Throughout American history, the Constitution has served as the very foundation of our system of governance, and the U.S. Supreme Court has been the ultimate arbiter of what that Constitution means. With the Supreme Court scheduled to hold conferences Jan. 9 and Jan. 16 to one of many cases challenging Barack Hussein Obama Jr.’s eligibility for the office based on Article 2, Section 1, I urge you to take this matter most seriously – and judge it only on the clear, unambiguous words of the Constitution: A president must, at the very least, be a “natural born citizen” of the United States.
If you agree that this clear constitutional requirement still matters, the Supreme Court must use its authority to establish, beyond any shadow of a doubt, that Barack Hussein Obama Jr. qualifies for the office under that standard.
There is grave, widespread and rapidly growing concern throughout the American public that this constitutional requirement is being overlooked and enforcement neglected by state and federal election authorities. It’s up to the Supreme Court to dispel all doubt that America’s next president is truly a natural born citizen of the United States.
I urge you to honor the Constitution in this matter and uphold the public trust.
