United States District Court Judge R. Barclay Surrick dismissed a lawsuit against the candidacy of Barak Hussein Obama because, he ruled, voters do not have legal standing to challenge a non-citizen running for US President.
The lawsuit, brought by Democrat Attorney Philip J. Berg of Pennsylvania, established as a legal fact that Barak Obama is not a "natural born citizen" of the United States. The lawsuit established as a legal fact that Obama was born in Kenya and, later was made a citizen of Indonesia. As such, Obama is Constitutionally ineligible to run for US President.
Despite being a loyal Democrat, Mr. Berg filed the lawsuit because the Constitution REQUIRES any candidate for President to be a natural born citizen and he knew Obama was not.
Judge Surrick dismissed Berg's lawsuit ruling any harm from an allegedly ineligible candidate was "too vague and its effects too attenuated to confer standing on any and all voters.
The ruling is legally incorrect on its face. Pursuant to Amendment Ten of the Constitution for the United States, "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."
Since there is no federal agency or person responsible for enforcing the Constitutional requirement that a candidate for President be a natural born citizen, and since there is no state law or state agency with such enforcement powers, then legal standing to deal with the issue falls directly to "the people." As such, Philip Berg did and does have legal standing to bring such a lawsuit. So do each of us!
Federal District Judge Surrick knows this; or is supposed to know it. His ruling makes me believe that either:
1) Judge Surrick is incompetent because he doesn't know the most basic laws of the nation, OR;
2) Judge Surrick is corrupt because he knows the law but refuses to obey it.
Either way, Surrick deserves to be impeached from office for the bad behavior he has perpetrated through his inane ruling.
In the past, I would have published the home address of the judge involved so citizens could
express their outrage. Since I am now using Google's free blogspot service, I cannot make
such a publication because this blog would be immediately shut off.
Had my listeners supported me better in the past, we could have continued
enjoying the freedom of my own web site on my own server. Alas, that freedom is gone.
