Thousands of urgent appeals for the U.S. Supreme Court to consider the question of Barack Obama’s eligibility to be president of the United States are being delivered to the justices as part of WND’s campaign to seek the truth.
The high court has conferences scheduled on cases addressing Obama’s eligibility tomorrow and again on Jan. 23. They cite Article 2, Section 1 of the Constitution, which stipulates the office of president can only be filled by “a natural born citizen.”
Because the Supreme Court justices do not accept faxes, e-mails or telephone calls, WND assembled an option for a delivery of letters through FedEx, and 1,344 people signed up to send a message to the justices, resulting in 12,096 messages.
The campaign was a followup to one in December that generated more than 60,000 letters sent by overnight courier to the nine Supreme Court justices. That campaign resulted in 60,138 letters in 6,682 FedEx packages of nine letters each.
“If we didn’t do everything possible to let the Supreme Court justices know what a concern this is to millions of Americans, I would feel like I was letting down the Constitution and the men who framed it – not to mention every citizen of the United States living now and in the future,” said Joseph Farah, WND’s founder and editor. “This constitutional eligibility test has become a key issue with me because if the plain language of the Constitution is no longer taken seriously by our nation’s controlling legal authorities, we have become an outlaw nation – no longer under the rule of law but under the rule of men.”
Farah personally drafted the letter for the justices as part of an effort that also includes a petition drive that calls on all controlling legal authorities to ensure the Constitution is followed on the question of eligibility and for full public disclosure of the facts of Obama’s birthplace and parentage.
Obama has claimed in his autobiography and elsewhere that he was born in Hawaii in 1961 to parents Barack Hussein Obama Sr., a Kenyan national, and Stanley Ann Dunham, a minor. But details about which hospital handled the birth and other details provided on the complete birth certificate have been withheld by Obama despite lawsuits and public demands for release.
