WHAT WILL CONGRESS DO?
By Lynn Stuter
January 6, 2009
In my last article, I quoted 3 USC, Title 3, Chapter 1, Section 15 governing the convening of Congress on January 6, 2009 to certify the vote of the Electoral College. On October 15, 2009, P.L. 110-430 was signed into law, changing the date set for the convening on Congress in this matter, from January 6, 2009 to January 8, 2009. P.L. 110-430 has yet to be codified (added to the United States Code), leaving people, including myself, confused about the conflicting dates seen in numerous articles on the subject.
In my last article, I put down, in succinct order, with as much clarity and simplicity as possible, twenty undisputed facts of why Barry Soetoro (a/k/a, Barack Hussein Obama) is not eligible to the office of president. I received e-mails from many that these twenty undisputed facts, along with the supporting evidence, were sent to U.S. Senators and U.S. Representatives. U.S. Senators and U.S. Representatives cannot claim ignorance of the facts.
A recent AOL.com poll shows that the American public is becoming increasingly concerned with the prospect that Barry Soetoro (a/k/a, Barack Hussein Obama) is not eligible to the office of president. With 108,503 votes registered, all but three states — NY, CT and DC — show a majority of those voting are concerned about Obama’s eligibility:
- 55% saying yes, they are concerned;
- 39% saying no, they are not concerned; and
- 6% saying they aren’t sure whether they are concerned or not.
This, of course, is not a scientific poll.
What will Congress do on January 8, 2009?
Can we take our cue of what Congress will do from a little publicized event that happened on April 30, 2008 in the U.S. Senate?
On that date, with little to no discussion, the U.S. Senate, by unanimous vote (who all voted is not a matter of record), passed Senate Resolution 511. This resolution, sponsored by Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO), had five co-sponsors: Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT), Senator Barry Soetoro (a/k/a Barack Hussein Obama) (D-IL), Senator Hillary Clinton (D-NY), Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK), and Senator Jim Webb (D-VA) who all signed onto the bill as co-sponsors the day it was dropped, April 10, 2008. Amidst a growing controversy of whether presidential candidate John McCain, III, was a natural born citizen, and having been unable to pass legislation that would have clearly made him so, the title of S.R. 511 was simply “Recognizing that John Sidney McCain, III, is a natural born citizen.”
Understanding, of course, that this Senate Resolution was nonbinding and had no force of law, the Washington Post reported the following:
Senators sympathetic to McCain's position, including Democrats Claire McCaskill (Mo.) and Patrick J. Leahy (Vt.), dropped an earlier attempt to quell the eligibility controversy with legislation. McCaskill acknowledged in an interview that there is "no way" to completely resolve the question short of a constitutional amendment, a cumbersome process which could not be concluded before November.
She described the nonbinding resolution, which she sponsored, as "the quickest, clearest and most efficient" way for the Senate to send a message to the courts that McCain has the right to be president.
In the mix of co-sponsors on this bill, you will find two other presidential contenders: Barry Soetoro (a/k/a Barack Hussein Obama) and Hillary Clinton. These senators were sympathetic to McCain’s position? Is this the message Congress also wanted to send to the courts with regard to Barry Soetoro, a/k/a Barack Hussein Obama?

Should we be surprised if Congress ignores the undisputed facts concerning Barry Soetoro (a/k/a Barack Hussein Obama) and votes to certify the Electoral College on January 8, 2009, officially certifying a usurper to the office of president?
