Obama Birth Certificate- Supreme Court Schedules Conference

This news is a few days old (17th) but does not seem to have been reported elsewhere. WND reports that the US Supreme Court “has confirmed that it has distributed a petition for rehearing in the case brought by attorney John Hemenway on behalf of retired Col. Gregory Hollister and it will be the subject of a conference on March 4.

In January the court refused Hollister’s request for a hearing. Hemenway then submitted a request for a rehearing, pointing out that the situation appeared to be violating the rules of the U.S. Supreme Court.

“The real question here is one of getting members of the judiciary to take seriously the oath that they swore to protect and preserve the Constitution,” Hemenway wrote in his petition for rehearing. “To continue to avoid the issue will destroy the constitutional rule of law basis of our legal system when it is under vigorous assault as surely as if the conscious decision were made to cease preserving and protecting our founding charter.”

This is quite interesting news given that so many leading Republicans are still intimidated by the left and refusing to take a stance on the issue, including Sarah Palin who said it was “unimportant”. Nevertheless, to stand for re-election in 2012, Obama will still have to clear the hurdle of the 12 or more states that have introduced new regulations regarding proof of “natural born” status.

Full Story.

  1. Will those states accept the “new official” cert..?

  2. It looks like this was a purely technical issue that they couldn’t avoid, i.e. the circulation for rehearing is nothing but remedying that problem by putting the petition on the list again, where it will suffer exactly the same fate, namely being declined for hearing without reason.
    The topic is simply too hot to handle for SCOTUS. There is more hope for success in the approach by a some states. If only one or two actually come through with legislation and force Obama’s hand he is finished whether he can provide evidence or not.
    I suggest this is precisely the reason the left is heating up the issues all across the US and the globe, they haven’t got much time left before things get more difficult for them. Expect a huge and accelerated power grab through regulatory and executive agencies and increased “community organising”. The statists will want to recruit and indoctrinate as many brownshirts and gumshoes as possible.

  3. “The topic is simply too hot to handle for SCOTUS.”

    Agree. It would indeed be a brave Supreme Court Judge who put the Constitution above all in America today.

  4. I would like to know where the Supreme Court stands on this question of eligibility as of March 28, 2011. Did SCOTUS rule on it? Have they tabled it? I sure would like to know.
