Many cases challenging Barack Obama’s presidential eligibility have come and gone, but now an appeal has been filed with a state Supreme Court led by a newly elected chief justice who has expressed doubt about Obama’s qualification for office.
“We are hopeful that Chief Justice Moore and the rest of the jurists on the Alabama Supreme Court will follow the law,” Klayman told WND.
Klayman says he and his team “have great respect for Chief Justice Moore and his integrity and legal acumen.”
“He is one courageous and brave man. There are few in this country.”
The case is an appeal of a dismissal by the Montgomery Circuit Court.
In his brief, Klayman says “credible evidence and information from an official source” was presented to Chapman before the election indicating Obama might not have been qualified for Oval Office.
The complaint argues Chapman failed her constitutional duty as secretary of state to verify the eligibility of candidates.
Moore is on the record questioning Obama’s eligibility.
Moore said he had seen no convincing evidence that Obama is a natural-born citizen and much evidence that suggests he is not.
Moore said Lakin “not only has a right to follow his personal convictions under the Constitution, he has a duty.”
“And if the authority running the efforts of the war is not a citizen in violation of the Constitution, the order is unlawful,” he said.
Klayman asserts the secretary of state “has an affirmative duty that stems from her oath of office under both the U.S. and Alabama Constitutions, to protect the citizens from fraud and other misconduct by candidates.”
As a result of her refusal to investigate the qualifications of candidates for president, Klayman says, “a person believed to be unqualified for that office has been elected.”
The remedy, he said, “is to require each candidate to do what every teenager is required to do to get a learner’s permit.”
“It is to produce a bona fide birth certificate … and the Secretary of State is the official to cause that to happen.”
McInnish is a member of the Madison County Republican Executive Committee and also sits on the state Republican Executive Committee.
Citing the investigation of Maricopa County, Ariz., Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse, Klayman says Chapman “gained knowledge from an official source that there was probable cause to believe the Barack Obama had not met a certifying qualification.”
The appeal brief notes McInnish visited the secretary of state’s office Feb. 2, 2012, and spoke with the deputy secretary of state, Emily Thompson, in Chapman’s absence.
Thompson, the brief says, “represented that her office would not investigate the legitimacy of any candidate, thus violating her duties under the U.S. and Alabama Constitutions.”
As WND reported, Arpaio and his team concluded that Obama’s long-form birth certificate was a computer-generated forgery.
Klayman, in a previous brief, argued the secretary of state, “having the power to certify candidates, can surely de-certify – in effect disqualify – them if they are found to be ineligible.”
In his new appeal, Klayman points, as an example, to California Secretary of State Debra Bowen’s rejection of Petra Lindsay on the 2012 California primary ballot because she was 27 years old. The U.S. Constitution requires the president to be at least 35.
In his conclusion, Klayman argues the fact that the election is over does not make the case moot.
“It would be paradoxical beyond measure if the real and grave question of the legitimacy of the de facto President, a question which lies at the very heart of our American Constitutional Government, were left unresolved for want of the simplest of documents, a birth certificate.”
If either a bona fide birth certificate is produced or an admission is made that it does not exist, he writes, “this most important of legal questions will have been answered, the purity of Alabama’s ballot maintained, and the anxiety of Alabama citizens stilled.”
If the issue is not resolved, he said, citizens will be left with the impression “that their government was dysfunctional and has ignored their real concerns.
In an earlier step in the case one year ago, before a panel of Alabama Supreme Court justices, one justice raised doubts about Obama’s eligibility.
The justices denied a petition filed by McInnish seeking to require Obama submit an original birth certificate before he could be placed on the state’s 2012 ballot.
Justice Tom Parker filed a special, unpublished concurrence in the case arguing that McInnish’s charges of “forgery” were legitimate cause for concern.
“Mclnnish has attached certain documentation to his mandamus petition, which, if presented to the appropriate forum as part of a proper evidentiary presentation, would raise serious questions about the authenticity of both the ‘short form’ and the ‘long form’ birth certificates of President Barack Hussein Obama that have been made public.”
The “certain documentation” is the findings of Arpaio’s investigation.
“The Alabama Constitution implies that this court is without jurisdiction over McInnish’s original petition,” Parker explained. “The office of the secretary of state of Alabama is not a ‘court of inferior jurisdiction’ that this court may control through the issuance of a writ in response to a petition.”
Now, however, the case is coming from a lower court.
‘Obama violated the Constitution’
Moore told WND in an interview after his election last November that the country must return to a standard in which the rule of law prevails over politics.
He said Obama violated the Constitution when he bombed Libya, because the Constitution stipulates only Congress shall declare war.
“No president has the power to violate constitutional restraints of power,” Moore said.
“The Constitution is the rule of law, and [my job is] to uphold the rule of law.”
Government’s job, Moore said, is to secure and protect those rights.
“There is little regard for the Constitution in the courts today, even the U.S. Supreme Court.”

A press office staffer for Vice President Joe Biden forced a credentialed reporter from the University of Maryland’s Philip Merrill College of Journalism to delete photos taken Tuesday at an event in the Washington, D.C. suburb of Rockville, Md.
Vice President Joe Biden’s press secretary, Kendra Barkoff, has since apologized for the thuggery.
The trouble began when he unintentionally took a seat in an area that wasn’t specifically designated for members of the press.
“I didn’t see any demarcation that would have designated a press entrance versus a general entrance,” Barr told Capital News Service.
Once the event started, Barr said, he snapped a few photos of each speaker.
“People a few rows in front of me were also taking photos,” he added.
“She said, ‘I need to see your camera right now,’” Barr told CNS.
“I assumed that I’d violated a protocol,” the student reporter added. “I gave her the benefit of the doubt that she was following proper procedures.”
Rosenzweig’s rationale was that Barr’s presence in an area of the crowd that wasn’t designated specifically for the press gave him an “unfair advantage” over other nearby media representatives at the event.
It’s unclear what this advantage could have been.
Biden’s staffer then made Barr delete all the photos from his camera. She watched him the whole time to make sure he obeyed. She also scrutinized his iPhone to confirm that he didn’t save any photos.
Rosenzweig wasn’t done violating Barr’s rights just yet. She told him to wait while she found her boss. After about 10 minutes, the staffer told Barr she was terribly sorry, and allowed him to leave.
Lucy A. Dalglish, dean of the Philip Merrill College of Journalism at the University of Maryland, later filed a formal complaint with the vice president’s press office.
Dalglish informed Biden’s press secretary that her staffer had broken a federal law (the violation of the First Amendment notwithstanding).
“This was pure intimidation,” Dalglish told CNS. “It’s clear from the circumstance that the journalist did nothing wrong.”
This incident follows an enduring pattern of heavy-handed behavior by Biden’s staff toward the press.
In August 2012, Biden’s staff was busted trying to convince journalists not to report a host of ridiculous things Biden had said, according to Fox News.
In 2011, as ABC News reported, Biden’s coterie had to apologize for forcing a reporter to stand in a closet for an hour.

It is well known that Obama supposedly attended Columbia University for his supposed last year of undergraduate studies. However, the name used for the financial aid that he reportedly received has been an unanswered question until now. There can be no denying that Obama used a different name to obtain monies reserved for foreign students to pay for his tuition to Columbia University back in the 80’s when was supposedly an undergraduate student.
In October of 2011 I was conducting one of my daily database searches for any information relating to Obama and his alter identities such as his other last name of Soetoro. I discovered an anomaly using the database information that was pulled when I used the last name of Soetoro in and for the state of New York. The following exhibits are the items that were pulled when the searches were completed.
Exhibit 1 shows the database pull that details two names, one for a Barack Soetoro and the other is for Barack’s sister Maya K Soetoro.
Please note the name of the first person in this particular search. The first name is Barack and the last name is Soetoro. This is the name that “Obama” was using when he was a child living in Indonesia. Now, when he returned to the United States and began living in HI he started using the name of Obama, but secretly he was using his legal last name of Soetoro as of his tenure as a student at Columbia University.
Exhibit 2 details the search that I completed using Barack Obama’s name in and for the state of NY.
The significance of these two searches is that the result shown in (exhibit 1) was the first search completed which lead me to complete the second search detailed in (exhibit 2) which I completed using Obama individually as the search for the state of NY. The information that pulled was Barack Obama linked to the same address as Barack Soetoro. This address is 2960 Broadway, New York, NY 10027. Now, why is this significant? Here is why this information is so significant.
I completed a search on the Columbia University website using the address 2960 Broadway and what pulled up in the search was this information in the search results on page 2:
Exhibit 3 below is in the from of a PDF file that I downloaded from Columbia University and it details the process for permanent residents wishing to obtain a social security number through Columbia University.
In order to obtain funding, permanent residents must obtain a number to apply for financial aid and or seek employment. Now it is not known whether or not Obama had a job or not while attending Columbia University, but documentation was required for financial aide. So did he Soetoro / Obama obtain a SSN using the alias of Barack Soetoro through the International Scholars and Students Office?
International Scholars and Students Office:
Office & Courier Address: 524 Riverside Drive New York, NY 10027
Mailing Address: Mail Code 5724 2960 Broadway New York, NY 10027 212-854-3587 Fax 212-851-12350
The following excerpt is from a PDF that dictates how registered foreign student status is handled at Columbia University:
J-1 Exchange Visitor Status
– There are many categories of
J-1, including a student category. To be eligible for the J-1
student category, over half of your funding must come from a
source other than your personal or family funds. Common
sources of funding for EVs include funding from a government,
international organization or university. Students fully funded by
Columbia would be eligible for J-1 status.
Certificate of Eligibility
– This document certifies eligibility for
F-1 or J-1 status. It is presented to the U.S. consulate to apply
for a visa and to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS)
official when you enter the U.S. The Certificate of Eligibility is
also referred to as the Visa Certificate, I-20 (for F-1 status), or
DS-2019 (for J-1 status). Students are eligible for the Visa
Certificate if they have been admitted to Columbia University,
will study in F-1 or J-1 status, and have documented their ability
to finance their education.
– The I-20 is a form issued by Columbia University for use
in applying for the F-1 visa and entering the United States. The
I-20 is issued to admitted students who have shown proof of
their ability to finance their academic program. It includes your
biographical details and information on your source of funding
and academic program. You must keep all I-20s that are issued
to you. It is recommended that you also keep a copy of all I-20s
for your records.
– The I-94 is a small white card that records your legal
entry in to the U.S., your immigration status, and how long you
can stay in the U.S. You complete it before seeing the
immigration officer who processes it and gives you a portion of
the form that s/he usually staples in your passport. The I-94
also records your arrivals and departures. Each time you leave
the U.S., the I-94 is removed (unless you are traveling to
Canada, Mexico, or the Caribbean). You receive a new one
each time you enter the U.S. For as long as you are studying,
you must have an I-94 that shows you are in either F-1 or J-1
status. Though the I-94 does not look important, it is one of the
most important documents you have. It is recommended that
you make a photocopy of both sides of the form each time you
get a new one in the event that your original form is lost or
What student status and what forms did Barack Soetoro use at Columbia University?
In February of 2010, someone had to have accessed the records of Barack Soretoro at Columbia University and altered them therefore creating the imputed data creating the file for Barack Obama on the same day of February 2010 so as to produce the results obtained by me as of October of 2011.
I challenge anyone to disprove my findings. We will have to open the records and examine them completely so as to disprove my findings and get to the truth once and for all.

(CNSNews.com) – In a final regulation issued Wednesday, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) assumed that under Obamacare the cheapest health insurance plan available in 2016 for a family will cost $20,000 for the year.
Under Obamacare, Americans will be required to buy health insurance or pay a penalty to the IRS.
The IRS’s assumption that the cheapest plan for a family will cost $20,000 per year is found in examples the IRS gives to help people understand how to calculate the penalty they will need to pay the government if they do not buy a mandated health plan.
The examples point to families of four and families of five, both of which the IRS expects in its assumptions to pay a minimum of $20,000 per year for a bronze plan.
“The annual national average bronze plan premium for a family of 5 (2 adults, 3 children) is $20,000,” the regulation says.
Bronze will be the lowest tier health-insurance plan available under Obamacare–after Silver, Gold, and Platinum. Under the law, the penalty for not buying health insurance is supposed to be capped at either the annual average Bronze premium, 2.5 percent of taxable income, or $2,085.00 per family in 2016.
In the new final rules published Wednesday, IRS set in law the rules for implementing the penalty Americans must pay if they fail to obey Obamacare’s mandate to buy insurance.
To help illustrate these rules, the IRS presented examples of different situations families might find themselves in.
In the examples, the IRS assumes that families of five who are uninsured would need to pay an average of $20,000 per year to purchase a Bronze plan in 2016.
Using the conditions laid out in the regulations, the IRS calculates that a family earning $120,000 per year that did not buy insurance would need to pay a “penalty” (a word the IRS still uses despite the Supreme Court ruling that it is in fact a “tax”) of $2,400 in 2016.
For those wondering how clear the IRS’s clarifications of this new “penalty” rule are, here is one of the actual examples the IRS gives:
“Example 3. Family without minimum essential coverage.
“(i) In 2016, Taxpayers H and J are married and file a joint return. H and J have three children: K, age 21, L, age 15, and M, age 10. No member of the family has minimum essential coverage for any month in 2016. H and J’s household income is $120,000. H and J’s applicable filing threshold is $24,000. The annual national average bronze plan premium for a family of 5 (2 adults, 3 children) is $20,000.
“(ii) For each month in 2016, under paragraphs (b)(2)(ii) and (b)(2)(iii) of this section, the applicable dollar amount is $2,780 (($695 x 3 adults) + (($695/2) x 2 children)). Under paragraph (b)(2)(i) of this section, the flat dollar amount is $2,085 (the lesser of $2,780 and $2,085 ($695 x 3)). Under paragraph (b)(3) of this section, the excess income amount is $2,400 (($120,000 – $24,000) x 0.025). Therefore, under paragraph (b)(1) of this section, the monthly penalty amount is $200 (the greater of $173.75 ($2,085/12) or $200 ($2,400/12)).
“(iii) The sum of the monthly penalty amounts is $2,400 ($200 x 12). The sum of the monthly national average bronze plan premiums is $20,000 ($20,000/12 x 12). Therefore, under paragraph (a) of this section, the shared responsibility payment imposed on H and J for 2016 is $2,400 (the lesser of $2,400 or $20,000).”

- IRS: Cheapest Obamacare Plan Will Be $20,000 Per Family (ConservativeActionAlerts.com)

White House spokesman Jay Carney on Monday answered growing questions about whether big donors to President Barack Obama’s nonprofit Organizing for America (OFA) are being promised access to the president.
His answer? Well, kind of.
While Carney had responded “no” when Fox News’ Ed Henry asked if a recent report “suggests that access to the president is being sold,” his explanation sidestepped the issue. He offered instead a string of policy proposals, definitions and a recitation of campaign finance rules.
On Friday, New York Times reporter Nicholas Confessore wrote of an alleged pay-for-access arrangement through OFA: “Giving or raising $500,000 or more puts donors on a national advisory board for Mr. Obama’s group and the privilege of attending quarterly meetings with the president, along with other meetings at the White House.”
On Monday, Carney emphasized that the group, which was born out of the president’s campaign committee, is an “independent organization”; that administration officials follow rules regarding separation between outside groups and the administration; and that the president supports campaign finance transparency.
When pressed again to explain the reports, Carney referred questions to OFA.
