President Obama's Eligibility Challenged

Two men, including a Monmouth County resident, are challenging President Barack Obama's placement on the state's primary ballot.

Two New Jersey residents, including one from Monmouth County, are challenging President Barack Obama's place on the state's primary ballot, according to the Bayshore Tea Party Group, which operates its branch headquarters in Middletown.

Despite the release of a longform birth certificate by the White House in April of 2011, Nick Purpura, of Monmouth County, has filed a challenge along with Ocean County resident Ted Moran alleging that Obama has never shown adequate proof that he was born in the United States.

Their claim, based on their own Constitution interpretation, is one commonly associated with the Tea Party — that his father was never a citizen of the United States, so Obama is not a natural born citizen. Obama was born in Hawii, in the United States. 

The challenge will be heard by an administrative law judge Tuesday at the Administrative Law Offices in Quakerbridge and the Bayshore Group has asked those interested in attending to consider carpooling.

The primary election is scheduled for June 5.

The petition, which was uploaded to the the document-sharing site Scribd, cites sources that include World Net Daily, Sheriff Joe Arpaio, the controversial elected sheriff of Maricopa County, Az., and videos posted on YouTube as evidence why Obama may not be eligible to be this country's president.

From the petition:

"Candidate Obama has not conclusively proven his identity and he is perpetrating a fraud upon Objector Purpora (sic) and Moran by not revealing his true identity which is harmful to their rights as voters and citizens. The objection to Candidate Obama's nominating petition is twofold. We first allege that he has not conclusively proven that he was born in the United States. We also allege that even if he was born in the United States, he is still not an Article II "natural born Citizen" because he fails to meet the requirements of the traditional American common law definition of the clue which is a child born in the country to two U.S. citizen parents."

I absolutely can't believe that this issue is coming up again. So many dummies. Get over it. Obama is an American, like it or not.

The elected President is the foreign influence the founding fathers intended to prevent Today’s America is threatened by many foreign influences. Islam, as a political and legal system, is more dangerous than any nation because it is an international movement. In many ways the Islamic movement has been more successful than communism at influencing our nation. Most of us could not imagine that a man whose father was a communist and who was educated in a communist country who had a name like Boris Rumanov could ever be elected as President of the United States. Yet a man whose father and step father were both Muslim and whose early childhood education was done in a Muslim country and has a distinctively Muslim name is now President of the United States. http://thesteadydrip.blogspot.com/2012/04/elected-president-is-foreign-influence.html

Yes, because a blog is a totally acceptable source to prove your wacked out opinions. He released his long form birth certificate. Get over it.

Oh, that's rich! <p> </p> So our right-wing, Republican in all but name President is a (Shhhhh!) Secret Muslim? Really? <p> </p> Well, that explains his ongoing war in Afghanistan, the drone strikes in Pakistan, and, best of all, the Administration's ginning up for another Neocon war against another Muslim country, this time Iran. <p> </p> <p> </p> But hey, I guess the mirage that there's actually still two parties in the United States instead of a corporatist oligarchy will keep some folks busily focused on distractions, while the 1% continues to decimate the middle class and take what's left of our freedoms.

GLC you are a FOOL. It has NOTHING to do with being. born American. Read the US Constitution, where it is defined that our President must be a Natural Born United States Cotizen, This means that BOTH of he's parents are US citizens too. Obama's fake. Birth certificate he recently reissued shows his father is NOT a US CItizen thus he should immediately resign before clueless doltsike you catch on and the whole country is in civil war Between those who have taken oaths to uphold the constitution and people like you who desire to not only destroy our constitution' it the United States too.

Obama's rapidly growing problem is that any American can go to the Apple Store or Best Buy and purchase the consumer software needed to validate Sheriff Joe's claims. Then all they need is a free download from the White House web side of the PDF containing the concocted birth certificate. This isn't secret CIA stuff. Opinion simply doesn't enter into it.

Although and in depth understanding of what it means to be a"Natural Born" Citizen, in order to separate and understand the three types of citizenship afforded us through the constitution and regulations "law", instituted by congress, the simplistic explanation toward the understanding is that one must be born of two American Citizens at the time of birth. This is not the case for Barack Obama. But beyond this most obvious issue, I find it highly unusual that a person seeking the most powerful position in the world "POTUS" would not be required to show proof positive ID. If for nothing else but for security reasons. Our government has become far to reckless when it comes to what it's elected members might be required to do. Yet, they seem to worry about what it's citizens do far to much so, as in what we do such as what we eat, where we go and what we do. Far beyond what is allowed by the people and the states as laid out in our constitution. Our elected officials have all but completely thrown away the rule of law when the law restricts them from imposing themselves on the population. Best way to understand whats constitutional when congress legislates is to ask, could I do to them and others, what they allow their legislation to do to us. I think many people would recognize that our Federal government has gone completely rough. As for the naysayers, I say get educated on the subject. To us that know the facts, you come off ignorant in your rhetoric.

Robert, by the way, what's a Teabegger? Here's a few places where you can become educated on this subject. I suggest reading them in the order as posted.

Teabeggar (n.) - Member of the Tea Party, usually old and poor, yet they consistently champion the causes of the wealthy class. They sincerely believe that very shortly, they will join that wealthy class. Hint: They won't.
