Supreme Court Order Expected Monday in Obama Case

Washington, DC -- The nine justices of the U.S. Supreme Court conducted their weekly "conference" on Friday, December 5 to decide which, if any, cases they will choose to review.

Among the cases they considered is Donofrio v. Wells, wherein a New Jersey citizen challenges Barack Obama's eligibility to be elected President of the United States.

The lawsuit claims that at birth, Barack Obama was not a "natural born citizen" of the United States, but instead was a British citizen by virtue of his father being a citizen of Kenya.

Based upon past Supreme Court conferences, an ORDER regarding the case is likely to appear on the Supreme Court web site sometime early Monday, December 8.

If the justices voted to accept the case, the order will lay out when the parties to the lawsuit must submit papers and make oral arguments. Merely undertaking this review will call into question whether or not Barack Obama can be "elected" by the Electoral college when they meet in each of the 50 state Capitols on December 15.

If the Justices chose to reject consideration of the case, the Order will say so and that will leave the nation with a President who is clearly ineligble; an intolerable situation.

It seems to me there are only two possible outcomes from this situation:

If the court enforces the natural born citizen rule and prevents Obama from being elected, the minorities throughout the country will rise up in massive civil unrest.

If the court refuses to enforce the constitutional eligibility issue, the country will likely fall into civil war.

The last time a Supreme Court decision of this magnitutde was considered was the Dred Scott decision. I imagine the justices of that time never thought their decision would cause civil war. It did.

Here we are again.

Civil unrest or civil war? Stay tuned.
