"Super American Grand Jury" Indicts Obama

You've heard of do-it-yourself home decorating, and probably even do-it-yourself recording. But a do-it-yourself grand jury? That would be a little over the top, right?

That is, unless you're convinced the President of the United States isn't a citizen, and are looking to do something about it.

According to a self-style “indictment” dated June 24, a group of 172 concerned citizens declared themselves a “SUPER AMERICAN GRAND JURY” and voted to charge Obama with treason. Specifically, they accused him of not being an American citizen. The group then proceeded to file their charges at the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, where it landed of the desk of Chief Judge Royce Lamberth.

Judge Lamberth, not generally known for his low-key personal or writing style, dismissed the “indictment” in a straightforward, two-page order dated July 2 but released today.

“The individuals who have made this presentment were not convened by this court to sit as a grand jury nor have they been selected at random from a fair cross section of this district,” the judge wrote. “Any self-styled indictment or presentment issued by such a group has no force under the Constitution or laws of the United States.”

I don't believe that America is run by politicians in Washington. I believe it's run by people like us, in places like this. -Tulsa OK, January 29, 2004

We must assure investments in the technology infrastructure — the broadband and wireless access improved and modernized highway, air, and rail transportation systems, and the access to affordable, reliable sustainable energy essential to continuing economic development. We must have a real plan to achieve energy independence. And we need to do so without further damaging our fragile environment. In fact, sustainable energy and so-called green engineering provide major growth opportunities for American ingenuity, and we must move in that direction. - "Real State Of The Union," January 30, 2006

We need to really get to the bottom of the Abramoff scandal, we should have a special prosecutor appointed for that, we really need a congressional investigation of the whole business of the NSA wiretapping and how far that goes, there's been a lot of squirreling around the edges; we've never completed the investigation of 9/11 and whether the administration actually misused the intelligence information it had - the evidence seems pretty clear to me, I've seen that for a long time. I think Americans are best served by a strong 2-party system and that's been out of whack and what I can do in 2006 is try to help the right Democrats get into office and that's what I'm going to do. - "This Week," March 5, 2006
