Now that the Supreme Court has denied certiorari to the New Jersey Donofrio case, it appears the CFR-controlled
Corporate Big Media are using more of their resources to add to the perception that this vital constitutional issue
really has no significant credibility. After greatly under-reporting the story, now the Establishment Media can today
report a defeat on this particular legal challenge to Obama's constitutional eligibility to be elected president. There
are other legal challenges, notably the Pennsylvania Berg case, and the California Keyes case, still in the legal
pipeline. Pay attention to how much coverage the Establishment Media gives to these other ongoing cases, not
only today, but also in the days ahead. Or, if the CFR-controlled media manipulators of public thought and attention
will under-report once again.

A word to the wise, be wary of what you hear from CFR-member Brian Williams (NBC anchor-propagandist); from
retiring interim NBC's "Meet the Press" host CFR Director Tom Brokaw (and former NBC anchor-propagandist), from
CFR-member Katie Couric (CBS anchor-propagandist), from CFR-member, former CFR Director Diane Sawyer
(ABC News-propagandist), from CFR-member Barbara Walters (ABC News-propagandist), from FOX News (overseen
by CFR-member Rupert Murdoch, Newscorp. CEO), or from the PBS Newshour ("CFR Evening News") crew,
including CFR-member Jim Lehrer, CFR-member Judy Woodruff, or CFR-member Margaret Warner, or any of
the other CFR mouthpieces in the broadcast, print, or internet media.

Do your own research from independent and varied sources, especially on the internet (blogs, e-mail).
Check out plaintiff Phil Berg's (Pennsylvania case) website (www.ObamaCrimes.com) and Leo Donofrio's
blogsite (http://naturalborncitizen.wordpress.com). Links to reports from various media, just from Dec. 7 - Dec. 8,
are provided below. Take note of all the Establishment media outlets reporting on today's defeat, and then
watch in the days ahead how much reporting Big Media does on the ongoing Pennsylvania and California
cases.

God says, "As for My people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O My people, they
which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths." Isaiah 3:12

and, "For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed." Isaiah 9:16

To paraphrase this nation's Founding Fathers, Only a Virtuous People is Capable of Liberty; Only a Moral People is
Capable of Freedom; Only a People which can Govern Themselves as Individuals, can practice Self-Government
corporately. To apply the Scriptures above, America has gotten wicked rulers because we ourselves as a People are
wicked: a nation that practices, tolerates, enshrines, advertises, supports financially both privately and publicly, and
protects in law: child-murder-by-abortion, fornication, adultery, and sodomy, etc.
Can such a nation survive ? NO.
America's only hope is Repentance, beginning with those who profess to be Christians.

Repent Church (2 Chronicles 7:14). Repent America (Psalm 9:17, Proverb 14:34).

OBAMA WATCH CENTRAL
Supreme Court denies citizenship challenge
Justices won't give questions about eligibility full hearing
Posted: December 08, 2008
www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=83041
[excerpt, emphasis added]

The U.S. Supreme Court today announced it has denied bringing Donofrio v. Wells – one of several cases
challenging Barack Obama's eligibility to serve as president – before a full hearing.

The case of Leo C. Donofrio v. New Jersey Secretary of State Nina Mitchell Wells claims Obama does not meet the
Constitution's Article 2, Section 1 "natural-born citizen" requirement for president because of his dual citizenship at birth.

Where's the proof Barack Obama was born in the U.S. or that he fulfills the "natural-born American" clause in the
Constitution? If you still want to see it, sign WND's petition demanding the release of his birth certificate.

Unlike many of the lawsuits regarding Obama's "natural-born citizen" status, the Donofrio case makes no allegation
he was born on foreign soil. Instead, Donofrio contends Obama was a British citizen at birth, because of his father's
citizenship in a British colony, Kenya.

"Don't be distracted by the birth certificate and Indonesia issues," Donofrio writes on his Natural Born Citizen blog.
"They are irrelevant to Senator Obama's ineligibility to be president. Since Barack Obama's father was a citizen of
Kenya and therefore subject to the jurisdiction of the United Kingdom at the time of Senator Obama's birth, then
Senator Obama was a British citizen 'at birth.'"

As WND has reported, Donofrio's case is only one of several filed around the country challenging Obama's
eligibility to be elected president under the Constitution.

Former presidential candidate Alan Keyes and others filed a court petition in California asking the secretary
of state to refuse to allow the state's 55 Electoral College votes to be cast in the 2008 presidential election until
Obama verifies his eligibility to hold the office.

The California action was filed by Gary Kreep of the United States Justice Foundation on behalf of Keyes, the
presidential candidate of the American Independent Party, along with Wiley S. Drake and Markham Robinson,
both California electors.

"Should Senator Obama be discovered, after he takes office, to be ineligible for the Office of President of the
United States of America and, thereby, his election declared void, Petitioners, as well as other Americans,
will suffer irreparable harm in that (a) usurper will be sitting as the President of the United States, and
none of the treaties, laws, or executive orders signed by him will be valid or legal," the action challenges.

Supreme Court Rejects Appeal Over Obama’s Citizenship
http://thecaucus.blogs.nytimes.com/2008/12/08/supreme-court-rejects-appeal-over-obamas-citizenship/?hp
[excerpts, emphasis added]

Without any comment whatsoever, the Supreme Court today declined to take up an appeal by a New Jersey
man who questioned President-elect Barack Obama’s eligibility for the presidency, based on his birth to a father from
Kenya and a mother who was a United States citizen.

The case, brought by Leo Donofrio of East Brunswick, N.J., contended that Mr. Obama could not be considered a
“natural-born citizen” ­ a constitutional ground for becoming president of the United States ­ because he had dual
nationality at birth.
The state of Hawaii has declared that Mr. Obama was born there in August of 1961, and is a United States citizen,
but that hasn’t stopped a small squall of Internet-fueled rumors from trying to debunk his citizenship. The issue of his
birth certificate has long been the subject of rumors, to the point that Mr. Obama’s Web site posted a copy of it on its
“fightthesmears” mini-site to try to staunch the innuendo during the campaign.

This is the kind of doubt-bending thing that lives independently online, but from the looks of today’s decision by the
highest court in the land, the accusation isn’t gaining much ground in the realm of reality.

UPDATE: The Supreme Court has turned down an emergency appeal from a New Jersey man who says President-elect
Barack Obama is ineligible to be president because he was a British subject at birth.

The court did not comment on its order Monday rejecting the call by Leo Donofrio of East Brunswick, N.J., to intervene in
the presidential election. Donofrio says that since Obama had dual nationality at birth -- his mother was American and his
Kenyan father at the time was a British subject -- he cannot possibly be a "natural born citizen," one of the requirements the
Constitution lists for eligibility to be president.

At least one other appeal over Obama's citizenship remains at the court. Philip J. Berg of Lafayette Hill, Pa., argues that
Obama was born in Kenya, not Hawaii as Obama says and the Hawaii secretary of state has confirmed. Berg says Obama also
may be a citizen of Indonesia, where he lived as a boy. Federal courts in Pennsylvania have dismissed Berg's lawsuit.

The campaign challenging the legitimacy of Obama's 1961 birth certificate or the legality of his taking office is chronicled by
WorldNetDaily, a popular, politically right-leaning site that was the 26th most-visited news and media Web site during
November, according to Hitwise, which monitors Net traffic.
"If this [Obama taking office] happens, the question of eligibility for the highest office in the land will no longer even be a
matter for concern," wrote Joseph Farah, founder and editor of WorldNetDaily.

"Precedent will have been established. Arnold Schwarzenegger will suddenly be eligible to run for the office in 2012,"
Farah wrote, referring to the Austrian-born California governor and film star.

An Obama spokesman declined to comment for this story.

Mr Obama's father was born in Kenya

The lawsuit claimed he should be disqualified because, it claimed, he acquired the same British citizenship
that his father had when he was born.
This meant he was not a "natural-born" US citizen, as the US constitution requires, it alleged.

Mr Obama's birth certificate shows he was born in Hawaii.

The Supreme Court rejected an attempt Monday to declare Barack Obama ineligible to be president.

The court turned down a long-shot emergency appeal from a New Jersey man who claimed that Obama could not serve as
president because he had dual nationality at birth. Since his mother was an American and his Kenyan father was a British subject, he
failed to meet the constitutional standard of being a “natural born citizen,” argued Leo Donofrio of East Brunswick, N.J., in his appeal.

The court denied the request without providing an explanation, which is common practice.

Donofrio’s suit was one of a few around the country seeking to nullify the election, but his had a noteworthy case history: It
was referred to the high court by Justice Clarence Thomas, the court’s only African American.

Whisper campaign persists despite election

is secretly not an American is still going strong.

Even with the election decided, the widely debunked whisper campaign claiming that Barack Obama is secretly not
an American, and thus not qualified to be president, is going strong.

The Supreme Court Monday rejected one case contending that Obama is not a "natural born citizen," as the
president is required to be under Article II, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution. The case, referred to the court by
Justice Clarence Thomas after Justice David Souter had rejected it, argued that because Obama's father was a
citizen of Kenya, at the time a British colony, the president-elect was born with dual citizenship.

Another case, filed by Attorney Phillip J. Berg, effectively contends that Obama has outright lied about having
been born on American soil. The high court has yet to rule on that argument.

A decision by the court to take such a case is unlikely, as at least four of the court's nine judges must approve before
a case is heard and the great majority of the petitions brought before the Court are dismissed without comment. Still,
it's further grist for what's been an active conspiracy mill.

"I think there are just a lot of people who just want to believe it," said Paul Waldman, who has studied the conspiracy
theories over Obama's citizenship for Media Matters.

Waldman said that like with the claims that the Clintons killed White House Counsel Vince Foster, a certain
segment of the population will continue to believe Obama won on illegitimate grounds no matter how often the claim
is disproved.

[section omitted]

"... Bob Schultz, who heads the "We the People Foundation" which has raised tens of thousands of dollars raising
questions about Obama's background and promoting Berg's legal action with full-page ads in the Washington
Times, Chicago Tribune and the conservative newspaper Human Events. The group is now eyeing buys in the
New York Post and USA Today.

Schultz's Web site, which had previously been dedicated to promoting Rep. Ron Paul's (R-Texas) insurgent
presidential campaign, hosts an array of documents and web videos offering conflicting arguments - that Obama was
born outside of the United States, or that he lost his citizenship upon moving to Indonesia with his mother and step
father and then must have re-entered the United States illegally.

The claim has reverberated in conservative media outlets, especially talk radio. According to Media Matters,
conservative radio hosts Michael Savage, Brian Sussman, Lars Larson, Bob Grant, Jim Quinn, Rose Tennent
and Mark Davis (who was guest-hosting for Rush Limbaugh) have all repeated the widely discredited claim.

The people of Iraq have far greater freedom to enshrine their national religion of Islam in the legal structure of their
country than do Americans to honor Christianity and Biblical Law in the United States. Christianity was by far the
predominant faith of the founding generations of America, from Jamestown in 1607 to the Declaration of
Independence in 1776, and beyond, as the historical record clearly shows:

www.christianlifeandliberty.net/NoKingbutKingJesus.doc


The Sixth President of the United States, John Quincy Adams (son of John Adams, the Second US President, and
a signer of the Declaration of Independence), said: "The highest glory of the American Revolution was this; it
connected in one indissoluble bond the principles of civil government with the principles of Christianity." and
"From the day of the Declaration... they (the American people) were bound by the laws of God, which they all, and
by the laws of The Gospel, which they nearly all, acknowledge as the rules of their conduct."
Tragically, today in 2008, American law has become exceedingly anti-Christian. Witness the government-
protected murder of One Million pre-birth human beings each year (www.ldi.org).

The Constitution of the United States should be amended as first proposed by the National Reform Association in 1864, with a
Christian Amendment:

Confession of the Saviour (Messiah) as the Ruler of Nations, including America, by amending the Preamble to the
United States Constitution
In 1864, the National Reform Association advocated amending the Preamble of the Constitution of the United States to read, in
substance:
    "We, the people of the United States, humbly acknowledging Almighty God as the source of all authority and power
     in civil government, the Lord Jesus Christ as the Ruler among the nations, his revealed will as the supreme law of
     the land, in order to constitute a Christian government, and in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice,
     insure domestic tranquillity, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the inalienable
     rights and the blessings of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness to ourselves, our posterity, and all the people, do
     ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America." http://candst.tripod.com/nra.htm
