Supreme Court Is Evading Obama Eligibility

Appearing before the House Appropriations Subcommittee, conservative Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas made allusions that suggest SCOTUS is deliberately evading Obama’s birth eligibility issue due to internal divisions.

Justice Clarence Thomas: We’re ‘evading’ eligibility

Does testimony hint at division behind Supreme Court’s doors?

By Drew Zahn – WorldNetDaily – April 17, 2010

Justice Clarence Thomas

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas told a House subcommittee that when it comes to determining whether a person born outside the 50 states can serve as U.S. president, the high court is “evading” the issue.
The comments came as part of Thomas’ testimony before a House appropriations panel discussing an increase in the Supreme Court’s budget earlier this week.
Subcommittee Chairman Rep. Jose Serrano, D-N.Y., actually raised the question first amid a discussion on racial diversity in the judiciary. “I’m still waiting for the [court decision] on whether or not a Puerto Rican can run for president of the United States,” said Serrano, who was born in the island territory. “That’s another issue.” Yet after Serrano questioned him on whether or not the land’s highest court would be well-served by a justice who had never been a judge, Thomas not only answered in the affirmative, but also hinted that Serrano would be better off seeking a seat in the Supreme Court than a chair in the Oval Office. “I’m glad to hear that you don’t think there has to be a judge on the Court,” said Serrano, “because I’m not a judge; I’ve never been a judge.”
“And you don’t have to be born in the United States,” said Thomas, referring to the Constitution, which requires the  president to be a natural-born citizen but has no such clause for a Supreme Court justice, “so you never have to answer that question.”
“Oh really?” asked Serrano. “So you haven’t answered the one about whether I can serve as president, but you answer this one?”
“We’re evading that one,” answered Thomas, referring to questions of presidential eligibility and prompting laughter in the chamber. “We’re giving you another option.”
A portion of the exchange, captured on video by C-SPAN, can be seen below:
[…] As WND reported, Justice Thomas had previously resurrected a case challenging Barack Obama’s eligibility to be president not based on his birthplace, but on whether Obama, a child born to a foreign national and admitting dual citizenship, would still be eligible under the Constitution’s Article 2, Section 1 “natural-born citizen” requirement.
Hints of division within the Supreme Court on the issue existed as far back as December 2008, as Justice David H. Souter had initially denied the case a hearing, but Justice Thomas agreed to bring it back for review. The case did not, however, obtain the required approval of four justices to move it forward to a full hearing. So far, the Supreme Court has not yet heard any case challenging Obama’s eligibility on any grounds.

Why will NO ONE in authority touch the eligibility issue?? It needs to be brought to the forefront, if for no ther reason than to prove that he is legitimate (which I do not believe for a second).. Something here is definitely NOT right, and America deserves answers NOW!!!

I’m wondering if maybe, just maybe, obama’s socialist manipulators and compadres alike aren’t saving legitimate eligibility (or lack there of) as their hole card. Like when things are undeniably circling the porcelain bowl (the Holy Grail of their collective cults) they will flush him down, like the turd that he is, and cling to the rim like a life preserver to save themselves. “We don’t know nothin’ ’bout no Burf Sur-tif-E-cut” will be replaced by, “Our ultra-super-secret-hush-hush investigative task force has uncovered the true origin of his birth…and upon hearing the news of this egregious trickery and deception Vice President… Read more »

In order to Make America Great Again we must open this can of worms and put to rest who is a Natural Born US Citizen and the requirements to be US President under US Constitutional law Article ll Section 1 Clause 5 of the US Constitution . We The People have to demand the US Congress honor their oath to the US Constitution and enforce US Constitutional law under Article ll Section 1 Clause 1 of the US Constitution even now when we have a LEGAL sitting US President in President Donald J. Trump .
