SCOTUS Kills "Natural Born Citizen" Arguments Against Obama

SCOTUS released its orders from Friday's conference this morning and effectively killed the viability of all future claims against Obama's eligibility to stand for the Presidency based on his dual citizenship at birth. Their decision on the last case to reach them on this topic was released this morning:

The application for stay and/or injunction addressed to Justice Scalia and
referred to the Court is denied.

Today's release of SCOTUS's denial (without comment) of this case occurs cotemporaneously with the meeting of the Electoral College electors today across the country to certify the electoral votes of the states. These two events, both occuring largely out of the public and media's eye and attention, essentially ensure Obama's ascendency to the Oval Office as the 44th President of the United States.

The Court has removed the last potentially viable constitutional challenge, and the Electoral College with its votes today will firmly cement Obama as the President Elect and invest him with the commensurate responsibility and authority granted that title by the Constitution of the United States.
