Sam “Mr. Mensa” Sewell over to The Steady Drip is applauding the fact that Larry Klayman, Esq.has joined the Florida Birther Battle. Here are a few excerpts from the Press Release, and the entire story can be found at the link following:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – :FLORIDA Obama eligibility battle – Larry E. Klayman is jumping in as lead attorney
PRESS RELEASE – March 20, 2012FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Iconic public interest attorney Larry E. Klayman is jumping into the long simmering Obama eligibility battle and will represent clients in Florida and other states to challenge Obama’s inclusion on the ballot .
Larry’s entre into the Obama eligibility lawsuit arena was facilitated by the Obama State Ballot Challenge 2012 (OSBC) (obamaballotchallenge.com) organization. The group’s Communications Director, George Miller, said it was necessary to bring in a heavy hitter who knows how to force governments to be accountable. Sam Sewell is the group’s Florida Project Manager and OSBC Director Pamela Barnett is the California Project Manager.
Sewell stated “An analysis of several national polls on the subject of AKA Barack Obama’s eligibility shows that about half the citizens in American are unsure or don’t believe that he is eligible to be President. It makes sense that Obama supporters would want the issue settled along with everyone else. I would conclude that those opposed to releasing all of Obama’s history are frightened of the truth, just like AKA Barack Obama.”
Asked whether he has the goods on Obama, Klayman exclaimed, “Of course! Others have already gathered what we need, with more in the pipeline. The task at hand is to compel court proof, official acknowledgment and removal from the ballot, as well as present the damning facts about Obama to the court of public opinion.” Asked what he’ll do to help succeed, he stated: “accurate reading of applicable law, attention to rules of evidence, researching case law, venue selection and use of ‘political theater’ out of court.” Case: Voeltz v. Obama, et. al.(Case No.: 2012CA00467) and is filed in Leon County Superior Court.
Hmmm. I think you can translate present the damning facts about Obama to the court of public opinion and use of ‘political theater’ out of court into Larry Klayman, Esq. plans to make an ass out of himself just like every other Birther lawyer to date.
What Sam Sewell, and the other Birthers, like Dean Haskins, who are down on Orly Taitz, Esq. don’t understand is that their problems in court don’t have much to do with the particular lawyer. It’s their case that sucks. Sewell has a link in his Internet Article which shows just how badly their case sucks:
In these excerpts, you can see where Sewell stumbles out of the gate:
There are three types of citizenship in theUnited States:
1. Naturalized Citizen – Born in another country of foreign parents, and completed the naturalization process –
Naturalized Citizens can hold any elected office except President or Vice President.
Example: Former GovernorArnold Alois Schwarzenegger who was born in Austria of Austrian parents and become a Naturalized Citizen.
2. Native Born Citizen – Born in the United States of foreign parents –
Native Born Citizens can hold any elected office except Vice President or President.
Example one: Senator Marco Rubio was born in the United States, but his parents were not citizens of the United States at the time of his birth.
Example two: So called “anchor babies” who are born in the United States and are thus citizens of the United States, but whose parents are not citizens of the United States.
3. Natural Born Citizen – A Natural Born Citizen is a “second generation American citizen.” They are the natural offspring of citizen parents, and the history of the Constitutional phrase Natural Born Citizen emphasizes a citizen father.
Only two elected offices have the constitutional requirement of “Natural Born Citizen;” President and Vice President.
Example: Citizens born in the United States to two American citizen parents are Natural Born – Both George Bush and Bill Clinton are Natural Born Citizens.
Yes, that is right. Sam “Mr. Mensa” Sewell is sending Poor Larry Klayman, Esq. right back into the same place as the Birthers who got clobbered in Ankeny v. Governor (2009), to wit:
[c]ontrary to the thinking of most People on the subject, there’s a very clear distinction between a “citizen of the United States” and a “natural born Citizen,” and the difference involves having [two] parents of U.S. citizenship, owing no foreign allegiance.” Appellants’ Brief at 23. With regard to President Barack Obama, the Plaintiffs posit that because his father was a citizen of the United Kingdom, President Obama is constitutionally ineligible to assume the Office of the President.
The Ankeny Court did not see it that way:
Based upon the language of Article II, Section 1, Clause 4 and the guidance provided by Wong Kim Ark, we conclude that persons born within the borders of the United States are “natural born Citizens” for Article II, Section 1 purposes, regardless of the citizenship of their parents.
The three different types of citizen stuff has lost every time. It will lose again. And, the Ankeny case continues to rack up Persuasive Authority Brownie Points in case after case.
Perhaps the Birthers do not need a new lawyer. Maybe they just need a new Kindergarten Teacher to help them learn how to count??? With that in mind, I present the following for Sam Sewell and the rest of the Birthers to study up on. Maybe it will save some wear and tear on the brick walls of the nation. And their skulls:
Now, after they realize that “3” is not a Happy Number for the types of citizens, they can study this one!!!
I hope this helps!!!
