No, I’m not talking about my checking account; I’m referring to the Supreme Court’s reaction to Gary Kreep’s appeal of Keys v Bowen to the Court. The defendants, too, had no interest since they all declined to even file a response to the petition for writ of certiorari.
Another one bites the dust
It was actually Gary Kreep who petitioned SCOTUS for certiorari in Keyes v. Bowen.
Kreep’s website was busy milking the birther base for paypal money before the SCOTUS conference date with pleas about how he would need tens of thousands of dollars when the SCOTUS agreed to hear the case. The idiots were told that once the SCOTUS granted cert he would have to wage a costly battle at the SCOTUS against Obama. What a con man. He never disclosed that the SCOTUS conference was highly unlikely to do anything but stick the case on the list with 300 other denials in the week it came up.
Birthers deserve these con men. LOL
This is evidence of my level of interest in this appeal.
Thanks for the correction.
I note that in this case President Obama’s personal attorney spent millions not filing anything in this case, rather than the US Justice Department.
It’s easy to get confused, because Orly was the lead attorney before Keyes decided that he wanted Kreep to take over for him.
Incidentally, Kreep says that he has another active case, Wiley Drake v. Obama, which apparently is awaiting a Court of Appeals ruling in the 9th Circuit.
Oral arguments were heard five months ago, so it occurs to me that the Court of Appeals may have been waiting to see what SCOTUS did with Keyes v. Bowen, since the issues are pretty much the same.
The issues are not the same. The Ninth Circuit has the heaviest caseload in the nation and it typically takes anywhere between five and eighteen months after oral arguments are heard before a decision is rendered.
The sole question for determination in Keyes v. Bowen was whether a duty to vet a candidate’s eligibility can be read into the state Secretary of State’s function as chief elections officer where there is no statute charging her with that duty. The sole issue in Drake v. Obama is whether Wiley Drake has standing under Art. III. The appellate court does not need to look to California state law to resolve that, but if it did the federal court will follow the law as announced by the highest court of the state. We know how the California Supreme Court came down on that, well, because of Keyes. See? There is justice.
Thanks for clarifying that.
Well you know, the millions of not paper not filed by Obama’s Attorney in this case cost a lot of not dollars to produce.
Kreep has still not bothered to mention this latest failure on a stack of failures on his USJF website.
No surprise there
And of course he (and other birthers) claim *this* will be the game changer (“no, seriously, this time really really, I promise!”).
That’s like saying “my previous attempts to crush Mt Everest with a single fluffy ball may have failed, but wait for the next one, that one is *blue*, that’ll show him!”…
Maybe he’ll “pull an Orly” and try to see what The Hague can do for him.
Oh For Goodness Sake is reporting that Orly is now soliciting donations for her 2012 Senate run.
