The Federal Courts Are


Committing Treason
to the Constitution!
Chief Justice John Marshall’s
voice from the past cries out for
taking jurisdiction in today’s
Obama Article II eligibility cases.
Per the great U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Marshall,
U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Marshall
the federal courts and judges are committing treason to the
Constitution by not taking jurisdiction and getting to the
merits in the various cases before them regarding the Article II
eligibility clause question for Obama.

It is worth keeping in mind the words of U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Marshall when he wrote in Cohens
v. Virginia 19 US 264 (1821):

“It is most true that this Court will not take jurisdiction if it should not: but it is equally
true, that it must take jurisdiction if it should. The judiciary cannot, as the legislature
may, avoid a measure because it approaches the confines of the constitution.
We cannot pass it by because it is doubtful. With whatever doubts, with whatever
difficulties, a case may be attended, we must decide it, if it be brought before us.
We have no more right to decline the exercise of jurisdiction which is given, than
to usurp that which is not given. The one or the other would be treason to the
constitution. Questions may occur which we would gladly avoid; but we cannot avoid
them. All we can do is, to exercise our best judgment, and conscientiously to perform
our duty. In doing this, on the present occasion, we find this tribunal invested with
appellate jurisdiction in all cases arising under the constitution and laws of the United

States. We find no exception to this grant, and we cannot insert one.”

The Judges in the various Obama Article II Constitutional eligibility cases should simply read the words of U.S. Supreme
Court Chief Justice Marshall from the past and take jurisdiction of the constitutional question of the Article II eligibility
clause in the Constitution and proceed to a fact finding hearing and trial on the merits to see if Obama is Constitution-
ally eligible or not. I say Obama is NOT eligible. Obama is not a natural born citizen of the USA. Obama was born a Brit-
ish subject. Obama’s father was not a U.S. citizen nor was he even an immigrant to the USA. The DNC covered up for
Obama. Congress failed in their duty to vet Obama’s eligibility. Congress said this is a legal matter for the courts. We
need the federal courts to take the cases, get to the merits, and get a U.S. Supreme Court ruling to settle this.
