Supreme Court Decides Against Hearing Case on Obama’s Citizenship

I’m sure this won’t put an end to the conspiracy theorists, but the Supreme Court decided not to hear the case claiming that Obama is not a natural born US citizen. AP reports:

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

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.

I previously commented on these claims and linked to evidence against them here and here. Alex Koppelman reviews the debunked claims here. Of course no amount of evidence will convince the conspiracy theorists who already have found ways to deny all the evidence verifying Obama’s citizenship. The Supreme Court’s decision will most likely convince them that the conspiracy is even bigger than the previously suspected.
