Donofrio absquatulates

Leo. C. Donofrio

Leo. C. Donofrio

In an article entitled The Truth, anti-Obama theorist and legal challenger Leo C. Donofrio announced the closing of his blog, Natural Born Citizen. After one last gasp of legal assertion about how to unseat the President (quo warranto in the DC federal court), he wrote:

The blog is taking too much of my time and energy.  Therefore, it is going dark.  I have work to do.  My legal blogging days are over.  I may eventually publish a book on this era of my life.

Not only has Leo written that he’s going to stop posting, he deleted all of the blog’s former content including his articles and an extensive base of commentary from others.

Leo has withdrawn before, and wiping the slate totally may just be be a way of escaping all the legal mistakes and crank history he’s written up until now. Time will tell. I personally don’t think we’ve heard the last of Donofrio and Obama Conspiracies.

    At such times we need the words of the sages. No not Hillel and Akiba, but Donald Fagan and Walter Becker (AKA Steely Dan):

    Now you swear and kick and beg us that you’re not a gamblin’ man;
    Then you find you’re back in Vegas with a handle in your hand
    Your black cards can bring you money so you hide them when you’re able
    In the land of milk and honey you must put them on the table

    You go back, Jack, do it again, wheels turnin’ ’round and ’round
    You go back, Jack, do it again

    I would have to agree with the Doc. Leo may be back when he decides he misses the adulation of the birthers…However his unique legal theories will live on…Look at this post from the Post and Fail website…

    TIME TO COME TO THE AID OF YOUR COUNTRY
    (Dec. 1, 2009)

    Dear Mrs. Palin:

    Congratulations on the successful launch of your new book, Going Rogue, and for writing the book on your own, unlike someOne who has to depend on a ghostwriter to get the job done. I have not read the book yet, but from what I’ve read about the book and its enthusiastic reception I think I see where you are headed.

    I believe you are going for the gold—white gold, that is, as in the White House—and I believe you are at a critical juncture in your career. These lines from Robert Frost come to mind:

    Two roads diverged in a wood, and I —
    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference.
    —from “The Road Not Taken”

    The 2009 Sarah Palin Calendar emphasized her all-American qualities

    One path to the White House is long and circuitous, and it is the one prospective candidates usually travel by. But you, Mrs. Palin, have a unique opportunity to straighten out the path and to transform it into a veritable freeway. I urge you to take this transformative path today.

    Your effort would be small, but you must have the courage to risk controversy in the interest of justice for the sake of our nation. I know you have a strong, patriot heart, and I trust you to consider your options thoughtfully.

    There is a little legal underbrush to get through on the more direct path to the presidency, and it involves clearing away the Democrat thorns we now face. This means taking on Barack Obama now instead of waiting until 2012. Your way to do that—and it is uniquely suited to you—has been laid out clearly by attorney Leo C. Donofrio at his weblog in an article entitled “Quo Warranto for Interested Persons’ ” (October 8, 2009).

    Congress long ago provided a way to simply ask of an office holder, “By what warrant (right) do you hold office?” There is a harder way (Section 16—3502 of the Quo warranto statute in the District of Columbia Code) and an easier way (Sec. 16—3503, your way) to pose this question. The place to do it is the D.C. District Court. To quote Mr. Donofrio:

    Section 16-3503 of the federal quo warranto statute allows an interested person’ to approach the DC District Court concerning a quo warranto trial (by jury) without requiring the permission of the US Attorney General or the US Attorney for DC. An interested person’ may sign a certified complaint’ which states facts and those facts must be sworn to under penalty of perjury. Only facts may be sworn to, not allegations. The interested person’ gathers up all facts known to him/her and puts them in the petition, swears to them under oath and hands that in to the Court. Pretty simple, folks.

    Now the beauty of this for you, Sarah, is that once you have established that you are an interested person and have stated your factual reasons for questioning Obama’s right to hold office under Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 of the Constitution (the natural born citizen clause), you are done. Voila, you have done your duty to God and country. As per Mr. Donofrio, “If the court is satisfied that the person issuing the petition is an interested person’ then that person is not needed any longer for the trial.” See how easy it is for you, Sarah, to relieve this nation of the injustice of a fraudulent election under which it now suffers?

    Well, then, are you an interested person? Of course you are. If Obama had not fraudulently claimed to be eligible for the presidency, you might well have a White House office right now and be deeply engaged in accruing presidential credentials which nobody could deny.

    John McCain, who was born in Panama, will not question Obama’s eligibility because McCain himself was not eligible, despite the Senate resolution declaring him to be so. That resolution has zero legal force vis a vis the Constitution.

    Hillary Clinton could be an interested person but is not about to destroy her future in her party by challenging Obama’s eligibility. Moreover, she herself violated the spirit and, I believe, the letter of the 22nd Amendment, which was intended to limit presidential power to two terms. She and Bill were co-presidents, that being the basis for her campaign, and she and Bill (”my closest advisor”) are united in marriage, making them a legal UNITY. Hillary, or more truthfully Billary, was not eligible either.

    So it is up to you, Mrs. Palin, to petition the D.C. District Court to verify that Obama is eligible for office. You are uniquely positioned to serve the nation in this way, as you clearly “have standing which is unique and special compared to the public at large.” (Donofrio 10-08-2009)

    Finally, what facts would you present to the court? The minimum would be these:

    1. Obama has stated in his book and on the internet that his father was a British citizen and that British law governed his birth status. This means that Obama swore falsely when on November 30, 2007, he signed the Arizona “Candidate Nomination Paper” (A.R.S. 16—242) declaring “I am a natural born citizen of the United States.” It is impossible for the birth status of a natural born U.S. citizen to be governed by British law.

    2. Obama has never established as a fact that he was born in the United States despite an ongoing public outcry for him to show proof of his birthplace. The unverified and possibly forged Certificate of Live Birth posted on the internet is not a genuine birth certificate and is wholly inadequate as the basis for a presidency. It is possible that Obama is not even a U.S. citizen, much less a natural born citizen as required by the Constitution.

    Many additional relevant facts could be assembled, but those are the essentials. Sarah Palin, history has opened up a pathway for you above all others to take, and if you are wise and brave enough to take this path, it will become a six-lane highway for the army of patriots behind you. Now is the time. I pray you will step out boldly.

    Good luck and Godspeed,

    Harry Hunter

    Mr Hunter should know better. Sarah Palin cannot be President (nor Hillary either). Let’s once again use logic (of the birther variety) here:

    1. The Founding Fathers never imagined a woman President. See any Founding Mothers there? Didn’t think so.

    2. The 19th Amendment gave women the vote. It didn’t say anything at all about them being eligible to be President. Therefore, the Founding Fathers’ ideas are still controlling on this question.

    Evcen great legal minds like Leo, Mario and Orly can’t get around that.

    At first I thought the entire article was written as a sarcastic joke, as it started with:

    “Dear Mrs. Palin:

    Congratulations on the successful launch of your new book, Going Rogue, and for writing the book on your own, unlike someOne who has to depend on a ghostwriter to get the job done.”

    Wow…talk about the ultimate of projection ironies in play here! Sarah Palin’s team has never hidden the fact that her book was ghost written.

    This has been widely reported on and the ghost writer is even prominently named in the authorship. Authors appear as follows Sarah Palin with Lynne Vincent but Lynne of course did the work.

    I love how these birther goofballs are now trying to be revisionist and create their own false reality for their “St. Sarah” on something as trivial and petty as trying to not only pretend that she didn’t have a ghost writer but to go as far as to use her as a contrasting analogy against ghost writers! Now that takes audacity!

    My favorite is the twisted interpretation of how Hilary wouldn’t be eligible. In usual birther fashion, the only way to protect the Constitution is to destroy it with convenient lies.

    I’m still not convinced that Leo’s whole adventure in birtherism was nothing more than him initially trying to pull another “Jet Schizo” Andy Kaufman style performance.

    Now, I’m sure that his direction was driven in part by his personal prejudices on the issue – whether against Obama specifically or democrats in general or whatever.

    I have a feeling he kept at it for so long because of the “birther following” he developed, which stroked his massive ego, which after all, seems to be the main driving factor behind everything he does.

    Now that the writing on the wall for his “movement” is overwhelmingly against him, he’s wisely trying to cut bait, wipe the slate clean and move on to his next ego trip.

    G-To understand Mr Donofrio’s actions, we once more need to consult the sages. Confucious and Lao Tse? Not at all. No, one Kenny Rogers, author of that masterpiece of philosophy, to whit The Gambler:

    On a warm summer’s evenin’ on a train bound for nowhere,
    I met up with the gambler; we were both too tired to sleep.
    So we took turns a starin’ out the window at the darkness
    ‘Til boredom overtook us, and he began to speak.

    He said, “Son, I’ve made my life out of readin’ people’s faces,
    And knowin’ what their cards were by the way they held their eyes.
    so if you don’t mind my sayin’, I can see you’re out of aces.
    For a taste of your whiskey I’ll give you some advice.”

    So I handed him my bottle and he drank down my last swallow.
    Then he bummed a cigarette and asked me for a light.
    And the night got deathly quiet, and his face lost all expression.
    Said, “If you’re gonna play the game, boy, ya gotta learn to play it right.

    You got to know when to hold ’em, know when to fold ’em,
    Know when to walk away and know when to run.
    You never count your money when you’re sittin’ at the table.
    There’ll be time enough for countin’ when the dealin’s done.

    Ev’ry gambler knows that the secret to survivin’
    Is knowin’ what to throw away and knowing what to keep.
    ‘Cause ev’ry hand’s a winner and ev’ry hand’s a loser,
    And the best that you can hope for is to die in your sleep.”

    When he’d finished speakin’, he turned back towards the window,
    Crushed out his cigarette and faded off to sleep.
    And somewhere in the darkness the gambler, he broke even.
    But in his final words I found an ace that I could keep.

    You got to know when to hold ’em, know when to fold ’em,
    Know when to walk away and know when to run.
    You never count your money when you’re sittin’ at the table.
    There’ll be time enough for countin’ when the dealin’s done.

    Dear Mr Donofrio: In case you are reading this, I want to apologize for the musical interlude and commend you for your service to the country. I don’t want you to think that I fail to grasp the grave risks of having someone with a non-citizen parent in the White House. We can only be certain of the loyalty of those born on sacred US soil spawned by those of sacred citizen blood-people such as Aldrich Ames, Robert Hanssen, John Walker et al. Only with men like that, of 100% American background and no foreign parents, can we feel safe.

    ABSQUATULATE
    The source of some words can be blurry
    Which makes etymologists worry.
    From the “latin” one gleans
    That “absquatulate” means
    “To abscond” or “depart in a hurry.”

    Also, what Leo means is that the wind has gone out of the birther sails and he’ll be moving on. We’ll find him on the fringes of the Next Big Thing.

    I had a long debate on the Turley blog with a bloke named Boyle on just this issue.

    You did not list his killer argument: (3) the Constitution consistently refers to the President as “he” and “him.”

    If Hillary had been elected, the “birthers” would all be with us as “sexers.”

    Scientist December 2, 2009 at 8:30 am #

    Vince-No doubt.

    Fundamentally, the birthers argument comes down to “The Founders wouldn’t have wanted a man like Barack Obama as President.” My response is, “Maybe, or maybe not, but either way, so what?”. The Founders might not have wanted a black, a woman, a Catholic, someone who wore long pants or any of a hundred other types of people as President. They also never imagined the President jetting around the world on Air Force One, nor people discussing him on the internet either.

    Those of us alive today have a perfect right to interpret the Constitution in a way that meets the needs of our world. Those that want to pretend it’s still 1776 should look for Ted Kaczynski’s cabin. I believe it might be available.

    Well, lawyers are supposed to be interested in the truth, not just satisfying their clients. Of course, we all know that these simplistic notions do not lead us anywhere.

    We have seen recently in the CRU how scientists are human as well although much of their sentiments did not result in ‘selecting data’ to support some political agenda.
    Nor is the idea that the viewpoints of others are equally valid, logically supportable. Or we would end up granting creationists equal standing, side by side to the flat earthers.

    As far as I know, there has been virtually zero mention of the birther controversy in Western European papers.

    I only remember one very cursory mention (2 or 3 lines) in a French paper that some folks had questioned whether Obama was born in HI or not, but nothing about the lawsuits, Orly, natural-born citizenship, etc.

    I sometimes feel that the US is increasingly at odds with the rest of the civilized, modern world, and that saddens me greatly.

    The reality of global warming (if not its causes) is widely accepted by everyone. So is evolution. Abortion is barely an issue, and certainly not a political one. Stem-cell research and peak oil are not debatable issues either.

    This translates into scientific, engineering, transportation and energy policies that are increasingly ahead of what’s happening the US. You have to import wind turbines because you can’t make them. You’re falling behind in so many ways you don’t realize, unless you go abroad.

    Smart people across the planet are asking themselves how we’re going to transition when the US kind of collapses. There’s already talk of a new virtual reserve currency backed by oil, euro and yuan. What scares people is what that’ll do to the $. (And we all own a lot of $.)

    Right now, the US remains the useful gendarme of the world, and the second largest consumer’s market, but we all know it’s not going to be able to afford to continue spending nearly $1 trillion in year in military expenses (vs under $6 billion for China) and its credit has nearly reached its limit.

    In the meantime, your casino economy has devastated the world’s financial market, states like California (the 8th largest economy in the world) are already circling the drain (were it a sovereign state the IMF would already be there rewriting its laws), and your political gridlock, virtually a one-party state, prevents much-needed, drastic economic reforms.

    (In 1944, Americans making more than $200,000, ie $2.5 million in today’s $, paid 94% in income tax. That’s how you finance an Empire.)

    I was in Moscow under Gorbachev in the late 80s or early 90s setting up a film production deal, and I found a lot of the same crank, delusional notions everywhere than I see in the US today. The birthers are just another canary in the mine.

    Americans are a terrific people and the US has tons of natural resources but like Russia, you’re going to have to go through 10 or 15 years or so of pain to get back into the race.

    Mario- I’m really glad you used that analogy. If I write a scientific publication that gets rejected by the first journal I send it to, I might try sending it to a second journal. However, what I would NOT do, is, after being rejected by 65 journals, send it to a 66th, all the while claiming that the paper is brilliant and the reviewers (my scientific peers) are evil Communists who have been bought off or threatened by my rivals.

    So I ask you, Mario, when will you birthers accept the 66 or so verdicts already rendered by decision makers (judges) and stop the nonsensical “lawsuits”?

    Interesting article in the Post and Fail…Anyone ever read the crap from the site? It is worse that Orly’s because they attempt to seem like they are actually legitimate….

    Anyway this is the lastest bit of birther “proof”…However note that the so called Marine is a “Freeper” or member of the Free Republic site…Which explains his motivation…

    ADMISSION MADE TO MARINE, TESTIMONY PUBLISHED ON-LINE
    by John Charlton

    Race Bannon, U.S. Marine
    (Dec. 3, 2009) —

    The stunning admission was made to a member of the U.S. Marine Corps, in a chance meeting in the vicinity of Kalakaua Blvd., one evening in early August of 1980.

    The now, former Marine is a highly respected member of the Free-Republic online-community, and he has published the account of his personal meeting with the then Barry Soetero online at the Gathering of the Eagles Blog. After the divorce of Barry’s mother from his adopted father, Lolo Soetero, he began using the name “Barack Hussein Obama,” by which he is knows the world over, today. At the Free Republic, the ex-Marine goes by the name Race Bannon.

    The crucial part of his testimony regards what he writes in his essay, “Another crappy day in paradise, or The things you see when you ain’t got a gun.” Speaking of his encounter with Soetero, Bannon writes:

    He also told me something that I never forgot, for it caused me to do some other things in an effort to be nice to him and possibly a favor. We spoke of where I had been and the world as I saw it. I told him I had been to Africa , Mombassa specifically, and he said to me abruptly, “I was born there.” I told him he is not eligible to be president if that was true, but I remembered he said his mom was an American, so, maybe it was okay. But it was what I did after that makes this a true memory: I went back to the barracks and told others of this guy and suggested we all grab our photo albums and visit him again and show him pictures of Mombassa so he could see where he was from.

    No one wanted to go, and at that time, my camera had failed me weeks before we hit Mombassa and it was late August or early September until I had borrowed someone else’s pictures to develop myself so I had copies of where I was. But I never forgot meeting that man for those reasons. I was going to do him a favor and show him his home country of birth. And I never went back for some reason, most likely I forgot to or just felt that a one time chance encounter would be meaningless to both of us and didn’t mean we were friends.

    Bannon then closes his testimonial with the following observation:

    In the light of what is called “The Birther” movement, these memories are still foremost in my mind concerning this. While I cannot swear it was Barak Obama, all the details I do remember of that chance encounter fit the profile of the man who some people claim is born in Kenya and others claim he was born in Hawaii . The man I met was about 18, thin, Mulatto, told me he was born in Mombassa, raised overseas, was living in Hawaii and hadn’t yet been to many places in the world outside of those places, mostly, hadn’t been to the mainland of America for any long time period if at all. And he openly told me he wanted to be President.

    And I remember that face, the face of a young man who sat on a table to my right front, his hands resting on the edge of the table, him leaning forward, his smile, all teeth. It was Barak Obama. I don’t know if I’d bet my life on it, but I am willing to tell people openly at the risk of my ridicule. I was there, and saw him, spoke to him, and he openly told me he was born in Mombassa, Kenya, not Hawaii .

    Does it matter? Of course it does. It should not have to be explained as to why it matters.

    Race Bannon’s testimony is corroborative of that of two witnesses to the uncut version of the Obama vs. Keyes Senatorial Debates of 2004. The first and second testimonials of which can bre read at The Post & Email. Five African News Agencies also reported that Obama was born in Kenya.

    A discussion of Bannon’s testimony can be found at Free Republic, repleate with comments by the Marine himself and other photos of himself, from his time in the U.S. Marines.

    Finally, The Post & Email has employed the modern spelling of Mombasa; but Bannon has used the former spelling.

    So lawyers advocate whatever their client wants them to? And Judges may rule that a particular plaintiff/lawyer has become a legal nuisance and restrict their access to the courts.

    Scientists face the scrutiny of 100’s of other scientists when they work. That scientists get a bit tired of dealing with the few deniers of the facts is understandable. In the end, its the actions not the thoughts that matter.

    What a convenient memory that Marine has. 1980 I was travelling around Europe and I met lots of fascinating people. I cannot tell you verbatim a single word of my conversations with any of them.

    And amazingly enough, even though I have met Americans who were not born in the United States, I never thought that what I should tell them was that they weren’t eligible to be President.

    I also like how he then dances around and says that he can’t swear that it was the President, but of course wants us all to believe it was the President.

    I wonder if the guy was ever even a Marine?

    Slartibartfast- Good to see a fellow scientist here.

    I’ve had papers rejected too. Unlike the birthers, I read the referee’s comments carefully and tried to address their concerns. If they told me, like Judges Land, Carter, et al have told the birthers, that my work was utterly without merit, I would go back to the lab and start over, likely on a completely different line of experiments. I wouldn’t keep re-submitting the same piece of garbage hoping for a different result, that’s for sure.

    Orly is at it again.

    http://www.scribd.com/doc/23612301/KEYES-BARNETT-v-OBAMA-100-letter-to-judge-Carter-filed-by-Plaintiff-Pamela-Barnett-gov-uscourts-cacd-435591-100-0

    It’s good for more than a few laughs. Orly claims that a Colorado P.I. named John Samson, supposedly a former immigration officer, accessed a secret database and pulled up Obama’s “immigration records.” Samson actually logged onto an online service, http://www.inteligator.com which anyone with a credit card can use, and obtained a “report” which is less than useless. Orly now seems to believe that Obama is actually from Equatorial Guinea. She obviously does not understand the difference between “ethnicity” and country of birth.

    She is getting desperate and is now trying to do anything to persuade Judge Carter that her case has some merit. Of course, nothing in this filing addresses her standing problems, even if her outlandish allegations happened to be true.

    Dear Doctor Conspiracy,

    In August 1961, I was an American Missionary in Kenya. On August 5, I had a very odd encounter with an American woman. I remember the date, because that was the day I was getting my hair cut.

    I met this American woman at a market, carrying her newborn mulatto baby. She was accompanied by her Kenyan husband and his mother, who kept telling me that she was there when the baby was born in the village. I still remember how distinctive the woman was, with her red Mao cap perched on her head and her exhortations to the shop keepers to reject capitalism. Occassionally her husband- who appeared to be a Arab jihadist- would interupt her in what sounded like Russian- which I thought was kind of odd.

    I looked forward to talking to a fellow American so I approached her, and while she was very engaging(she just oozed sexuality and bragged of her numerous sexual liasons with non-Caucasian men) I quickly tired of her trying to convince me about how evil America is, and the solution to the worlds problem was microfinance.

    She told me that she hoped that someday her son would grow up to be the President that bring down the American Empire and usher in the Communist Revolution. Her husband interupted and said he wanted HIS son to make America a revolutionary Islamic Caliphate.

    I casually mentioned that her son wasn’t eligible for President since he wasnt born in the United States.

    The mother just smiled at me and said that I shouldn’t be naive. And then told me how one of her many dark-skinned Hawaiian lovers had already agreed to help her forge a Hawaiian Certificate of Live Birth and the Communist newspaper workers in Hawaii had agreed to put birth announcements in the local newspapers. Granny kept interupting though and mentioning in African that she had witnessed the baby being born in Kenya. She didn’t stop until the father threatened to hit her “like I do at home”.

    At that moment a vaguely Indonesian man ran up to the woman and said that they needed to leave the market immediately in order to make their flight to Honolulu, and they ran off before I could get a picture of them.

    Now I can’t swear that that baby was Barrack Obama, but considering that the mother was a licenstious commie and the father an Arab Islamic Jihadist I think that any rational Birther would agree that this is concrete proof of all of our suspicions.

    Sincerely

    Elmer Gantry

    (my apologies if I spelled some words correctly)

    You almost had me there. I believed the entire story until the very end. There were no flights to “Honolulu” from Africa in 1961.

    oh goody, the birthers are getting themselves excited about something again, which means … wolverines!!!

    cars, quo warranto, and obama (donofrio update)

    neil cavuto welcomed former chrysler dealer james anderer to his show on fox business news daily to talk about a case that has been filed by a group of dealers who lost their businesses in the washington D.C. district court. lead plaintiff anderer mentioned a team of legal experts while describing the case to cavuto, and an anonymous source has named leo donofrio and steve pidgeon as having been retained by a group of chrysler dealers who lost their franchise in the chrysler bankruptcy sale. they have been retained to bring two actions:

    1. a motion to reconsider the court’s approval of the dealer rejections. 2. a quo warranto in the D.C. district court pertaining to obama and his administration.

    I see Leo Donofrio’s strategy and tactic of going dark as more of an operational security motivation. Orly Taitz is broadcasting strategic planning, and while hers and Leo’s sites were both entertaining and educational, it makes sense to conceal case planning until the trial ends. Loose lips sink ships. Well anyway, it appears just as the last gasp has left the dieing horse, it gets hit by lightning and comes back to life.
