    Court: No review of Obama's eligibility to serve

    Associated Press

    WASHINGTON – 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.

    Donofrio also contends that two other candidates, Republican John McCain and Socialist Workers candidate Roger Calero, also are not natural-born citizens and thus ineligible 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 Hawaii officials have 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. Federal courts in Ohio and Washington state have rejected similar lawsuits.

    Allegations raised on the Internet say the birth certificate, showing that Obama was born in Hawaii on Aug. 4, 1961, is a fake.

    But Hawaii Health Department Director Dr. Chiyome Fukino and the state's registrar of vital statistics, Alvin Onaka, say they checked health department records and have determined there's no doubt Obama was born in Hawaii.

    The nonpartisan Web site Factcheck.org examined the original document and said it does have a raised seal and the usual evidence of a genuine document.

    In addition, Factcheck.org reproduced an announcement of Obama's birth, including his parents' address in Honolulu, that was published in the Honolulu Advertiser on Aug. 13, 1961.

    Nasikia ziko mbili na tunasubiri ile nyengine itaishia wapi.
    Yaani wamejaribu kila mbinu kuhakikisha kua jaluo haingii
    Whitehouse.Jamaa kashinda kura by a convincing majority
    na bado wanamuandama eti si raia.

    Kama asingelikua citizen kwani angetoboa zile primaries?

    Hii demokrasia pia ina ishu zake.Watu wengeni afadhali
    wanyamazishwe.I wonder even why the courts give them
    an audience.They should have some standards at least.

    Hehehe!! Mh mambo ya kiwinta na ukajiloeke kwenye lake sijui na mambo kama hayo ni noma tupu.

    Ila unajua hii demokrasia inaleta mambo mengi sana imagine umeshapitwa mwezi na Obama anakaribia kuapishwa ila bado tu kuna watu wana kesi mahakamani za kupinga kuteuliwa kwake wakati mtu ameshashinda. Hivi uvumilivu na kusikilizana kama huku ungekuwepo kwenye nchi zetu za Afrika ingekuwa vipi?

    ...Africa ingekua bomba kinoma!

    Some of these frivilious lawsuits being brought up are attention seekers,
    ama labda ni chuki zao tu kuona mtu mweusi kapata urais.
