Open Letter - Request to refile Petition Lightfoot v Bowen with chief Justice John Roberts

Cover Letter

Request to refile Petition ‘Lightfoot v Bowen’ with Chief Justice John Roberts

Dear Justice Roberts,

This cover letter is an open letter that is being posted on the Internet, including the ‘YouTube’ website, and will be read on a number of radio stations, particularly radio stations around military bases. It will be forwarded to all members of Congress, Senators, and Governors, as well as to the media.

This legal action, as well as 20 other actions filed in the past few months, is seeking Judicial intervention in the Presidential confirmation process, due to the fact that Mr. Barack Obama, whose father was a Kenyan-British citizen when he was born, is not a ‘Natural Born’ U.S. Citizen, and therefore is not eligible to be President of these United States.

The suit also alleges that Mr. Obama has not established his citizenship status since, from 1911 to 1972, the State of Hawaii allowed issuance of Hawaiian Certificates of Live Birth to foreign-born children of Hawaiian residents for up to a year after their birth. In addition, there is mounting evidence that Mr. Obama was not born in Hawaii, and therefore he would not be a U.S. citizen until ‘Naturalized’ by subsequent application for citizenship.

The Plaintiffs in this action are a Vice-Presidential candidate on the California ballot, California electors, and registered voters. A number of the plaintiffs have served years of their lives in the U.S. military, and, as such, have risked their lives, pursuant to their sworn oath, to defend and protect the Constitution of the U.S. against all enemies, foreign and domestic. The plaintiffs, as well as many other sworn members of the U.S. military, are deeply concerned about the fact that none of the cases related to Mr. Obama’s lack of eligibility has been heard on the merits.

The plaintiffs are also concerned about a program you have recorded: “Conversations with Chief Justice Roberts”, wherein numerous high schools students were flown in to Washington D.C. in order to participate in discussions with you about the Constitution, the Law, and the Supreme Court. As it clearly states on the video, this program was fully funded by the Annenberg foundation, and it appears that you, as a Justice of the Supreme Court, consider Annenberg to be a reputable organization that supports the Constitution, and that you support their efforts. A problem I see with this is that the Annenberg Foundation’s ‘Annenberg Challenge’ board included one William Ayers, an unrepentant terrorist who participated in the bombing of a police headquarters in 1970, the Capitol building in 1971, and the Pentagon in 1972. As late as 2001, Mr. Ayers stated in a NY Times interview: “I don’t regret setting bombs. I feel I didn’t do enough”. Also, beginning in 1995, the chairman of the Annenberg Challenge was Mr. Barack Hussein Obama.

In addition, The Annenberg Challenge has created an offshoot internet organization called (Annenberg Political Fact Check), that purportedly provides unbiased checking of political facts. In reality, Annenberg Political Fact Check has actively and intentionally defrauded the American public into believing that Mr. Obama is a ‘Natural Born’ citizen, and therefore eligible for the U.S. Presidency. Annenberg Political Fact Check has intentionally omitted the following relevant facts:

The definition of ‘Natural-Born citizen’ (Law of Nations by Emmerich De Vattel) is one who is born in a Country to parents who are both citizens of that Country. They also omitted the statements of John A. Bingham, author of the 14th amendment, that a ‘natural born citizen’ is one who was born in any U.S. territory to parents, neither of whom owes allegiance to any other sovereignty. Since, admittedly, Mr. Obama’s father was not a U.S. citizen and instead owed allegiance to Kenya-Great Britain, Mr. Obama did not qualify as a ‘natural born citizen’ then, and therefore does not qualify for Presidency of the U.S. now.

Fact Check intentionally omitted any discussion of Hawaii Statue 338-19 which allowed, from 1911 to 1972, for foreign born children of Hawaiian residents to obtain a Hawaiian Certification of Live Birth, regardless of which foreign country they were born in.

They also omitted the fact that such Certification of Live Birth can be obtained based on a statement of any one relative only, without any corroborating evidence.

It omitted the fact that there has been no corroborating evidence of Mr. Obama’s birth from any hospital, nurse or hospital administrator in Hawaii, while there have been numerous affidavits and statements from Mr. Obama’s Kenyan grandmother, a U.S. Baptist Bishop (with extensive missionary service in Kenya), and the Kenyan Ambassador to the United States, asserting unequivocally that Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. was born in Kenya. In this case, Mr. Obama certainly was not then (and quite possibly is not now) a U.S. citizen, and he will instead need to apply for ‘Naturalized’ U.S. citizenship status (or show proof thereof). Either way, he is therefore Constitutionally unqualified for the Presidency of the U.S.

Until now, the only information the American public has received about Mr. Obama’s qualifications has been from sources such as Annenberg’s, an extremely biased political organization, some of whose members have highly questionable backgrounds and motives, to say the least.

My clients, as well as 300 million Americans, including thousands of members of the U.S. military, who are asked to pledge their lives to defend the Constitution of this country, would like to know if the Supreme Court Justices, and in particular the Chief Justice (whose duties include administering the oath of office to a Constitutionally-qualified President of the U.S. on January 20th 2009), are willing to give a few hours of their time to hear the Oral Arguments in defense of this Constitution. They want to know if the Justices believe in the Constitution on which this country was built, or whether or not they allow it to be torn apart to the advantage of large money interests.
