Mark Begich Pulls a Political Ad Out of His Ass

Mark Begich is running for his political life and decided to pull a political ad out of his ass.

It seems the liar and BS artist wants the Alaska VA to be a model for the country.

Sure he does - But Veterans in Wasilla seem to have a problem with the Alaska VA.

Begich is pushing an audit that was done in Anchorage Alaska but it didn't include Fairbanks, Kenai, Juneau or Wasilla.

The guy is a fraud and the Alaska VA is not a model for the nation.

The Alaska Supreme Court Bungles the Political Doctrine Question

I was waiting for the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals to uphold the California Secretary of State's decision to remove a presidential candidate from the ballot.

I notified the Court on the 9th circuit case to ensure that they had the necessary information to come up with a logical decision. They blew it big time.

Even though they issued a MOJ in my case against President Obama, the MOJ according to the Alaska Supreme Court Appellate rules can be cited to so that leaves the court in a legal predicament if another scenario comes up.

The 9th circuit case decision can be read here.

Bottom line, as the 9th circuit court points out, the state has the authority to make a decision on the eligibility of a candidate and can keep them off the ballot.

The MOJ in my case can be read here.

It is evident the Alaska Supreme Court bungled the political doctrine question.

The Russians Are Coming to Alaska: Maybe

Remember all of the talk about a tunnel from Russia to Alaska - one Leftist blogger who lacks an intelligent design, thought Oh Boy that's a great idea for Alaska's economy.

A Political Question: If Orly Taitz Was Secretary of State of California?

The Obots have been keeping score on the loses of the so-called birther cases in court. Many of the cases were dismissed for lack of subject jurisdiction.

The legal reason - the political question doctrine.

The Ninth Circuit has taken up the issue of whether the court has jurisdiction to settle a dispute if a candidate for the presidency is eligible.

The case is  Peta Lindsay, et al v. Debra Bowen.


You can listen to the oral argument here and the opening question from the Court is where their decision is heading and the lawyer for Lindsay sounds exactly like the Obots argument and he cited case law which is meaningless.

He admitted she was less than 35 years old.

The direction of the Court is heading the same direction as I argued in my case against the president.

Could you imagine if Orly Taitz was SOS of California and kept the birther Barack Obama off the California ballot using California election laws?

And since Congress is a Republican majority - the Obot's head would be spinning - screaming all along the court has to settle the dispute.

It's A Public Right to Know: Lamb v Obama

Here is the link to the oral argument that was before the Alaska Supreme Court.

While the Obama supporters continue to call this a birther case, the case was never about the president being born in Kenya.

In 2008, I wrote about his adoption.

Unfortunately, litigants like Orly Taitz have muddied up the legal landscape with poorly argued cases that rendered poorly thought out legal decisions that are used as case decisions to bolster more poorly crafted decisions.

It has now become a nightmare to litigate in a court, an argument that can break through the idiocy that has been laid by Taitz and enshrined in court decisions.

In the oral argument you will hear how the DOJ under Eric Holder misrepresented the fact that Barack Obama's own campaign admitted he held a dual citizenship (side bar: Ted Cruz is in the Left's sights) in court documents.

So while Justice Winfree focused his questioning on if I could sue a judge or Governor Parnell and Joe Miller's employment records, the fact of the matter is: the Alaska court can order the release of the college and birth records of the president.

That is a legal fact.

How the Alaska Supreme Court rules on your right to know what the facts are? That question will soon be answered.
