In an article by a contributor WND.com (otherwise known among sapient beings as World Nut Weekly), the wingnuts are offered an open letter to Chief Justice Roberts, begging him not to swear in the Kenyan Usurper, because he is not a citizen, because his father was not a citizen.
He even threatens Roberts with impeachment if he swears Obama in!
Your own oath of office, sworn before God and the American people, requires you to uphold the Constitution. (If not you, then who?) If you now administer the oath of office for the presidency to a man who by his own admission fails to meet the natural born citizen requirement imposed by that Constitution, you have violated your own oath of office and are rightly subject to impeachment by any House of Representatives, at any time, now or in the future.
I am still a little goggle eyed over the persistent disconnect from reality of the Birthers, led by her royal highness Orly Taitz. How do these people function in the real world??
Their headline article for today is THE FIRST MUSLIM PRESIDENT
The 1 honorary title Barack Obama doesn’t want – but definitely deserves. If you want a taste of what true Obama Derangement Syndrome is, read not just the article, but the comments. Delusional does not even begin to touch how out of touch with reality and what a fantasized alternate universe these people have painted themselves intellectually and in terms of their belief system.
Due to this article, I have added the categories ‘Bat Shit Crazy’ and ‘Wingnuts’ to the site, since really, although I have avoided these appellations, which these people have truly earned over the past decade, I hesitated to use them as categories. But how else to honestly categorize their unhinged ravings? In fact, I think history will use Orly Taitz as the example of what this category means.
My comment added to his article:
You really have no idea what the Constitution says, or what Stare decisis and case law as to how the Constitution has been interpreted by SCOTUS means, do you? When you publish an article this completely disconnected from reality, how can you expect anyone to do anything but just LTAO at you?
Unlike you Keyboard Commandos who apparently do not know how to use Google, here is what I found with two quick searches.
These are the facts of the matter, not your fantasized distorted feverish imaginations and moanings.
Your interpretations of the Constitution are sort of like the character in the Princess Bride, about which Inigo kept saying: “You keep saying that word, but I do not think you know what it means.”
Both from Wikipedia articles. Try Google. It is your friend. I also added some emphasis on the key points to help you find them.
United States v. Wong Kim Ark, 169 U.S. 649 (1898), is a United States Supreme Court case in which the Court ruled that virtually everyone born in the United States is a U.S. citizen. This decision established an important precedent in its interpretation of the Citizenship Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution.
Wong Kim Ark, who was born in San Francisco to Chinese parents around 1871, had been denied re-entry to the United States after a trip abroad, under a law restricting Chinese immigration and prohibiting immigrants from China from becoming naturalized U.S. citizens. He challenged the government’s refusal to recognize his citizenship, and the Supreme Court decided in his favor, holding that the citizenship language in the Fourteenth Amendment encompassed essentially everyone born in the U.S.—even the U.S.-born children of foreigners—and could not be limited in its effect by an act of Congress.
While the Constitution does not mandate that anyone in particular should administer the oath, the oath is typically administered by the Chief Justice, but sometimes by another federal or state judge (George Washington was first sworn in by Robert Livingston, the chancellor of the State of New York in 1789, while Calvin Coolidge was first sworn in by his father, a Justice of the Peace and a Vermont notary public in 1923). By convention, incoming Presidents raise their right hand and place the left on a Bible or other book while taking the oath of office.
