Today was a big day in the state of Georgia! The hearing to see if Obama is eligible to be on the state’s ballot come November was held in Atlanta this morning. Three cases against Obama were brought before Judge Malihi starting at 9AM ET. Although subpoenaed, Obama, nor his attorney were in attendance. (Prior to the start of this hearing Obama’s attorney, Michael Jablonski tried to quash proceedings in every imaginable way. A letter was sent to Secretary of State in Georgia, Brian Kemp, requesting a “halt to this circus” and attached was the live birth certificate that Obama’s camp released to the media earlier in 2011. The letter also stated that Mr. Jablonski and Obama would not be participating in the proceedings including the January 26th hearing in Atlanta. You can view the full text of the letter here. Obama was cautioned by S.o.S. GA Brian Kemp that missing the hearing would be “at his own peril.” See full text of Kemp’s letter here.)
A meeting was held in the judge’s chambers with all the attorneys involved before the hearing started. The judge decided that since Obama nor his attorney were in attendance he would be entering a default judgment AGAINST Obama, meaning that he would recommend that Obama not be put on the state’s ballot. (Also see this article: GulagBound: Obama Eligibility Discussed in Georgia) The attorneys in attendance ( Orly Taitz, Van R. Irion, and J. Mark Hatfield) requested to be allowed to present an abbreviated version of their cases so that they would be on record. Judge Malihi agreed giving each attorney the requested time to present their cases according to Dean Haskins (attending and reporting for his own blog which you can read here). Irion and Hatfield presented their cases in short order. Taitz then presented her case which took a bit longer bringing in witnesses to testify and herself taking the stand as well. She gave her closing argument and the court was adjourned. You can watch the archived live feed at the Article 2 Super Pac website, here. On the other hand, there are reports that Judge Malihi has made no ruling at all and that there is no timetable for a ruling in this matter. This is what is being reported by the Atlanta Journal Constitution. You can read their article, here.
The expert witnesses that were brought in spoke about the birth certificate and evidence that it had been forged, the social security numbers and how they were registered to dead people from 1869 and only showed to belong to Obama when pulled up with certain records dating back to 1977. Also covered were supreme court decisions supporting the claim that Obama is not a “natural born U.S. citizen” as his father was not a U.S. citizen. The supreme court cases that were presented were precedents on the definition of a “natural born citizen”. See these cases here.
Much to the chagrin of the die-hard left, this case proceeded and Obama will not appear on the GA ballot. According to the left, this case was a waste of tax payer money and state resources as Obama has “proven his status” with the birth certificate release by the state of Hawaii in 2011. They argue that the right wing that’s claiming the birth certificate is a forgery are just conspiracy theorists that are racist and don’t want a black man in the Whitehouse. The right wing, of course, vehemently denies this and states Article 2 section 1 of the Constitution and asks why, if Obama is who he says, would he spend thousands of dollars concealing his college records and any others that might be pertinent to his defense? You would think that Obama would want to clear all of this just to shut the right wing up, but instead he has dodged every question, accusation, and court hearing, now. This only serves to make the right wing more convinced than ever that they are right and Obama is most definitely hiding who he really is.
There are other states that are filing the same kinds of lawsuits to remove Obama from the ballots in their states as well. It looks to me like this is the first domino in a line and not something that is going to go away neatly as Obama had hoped. Other states filing similar law suits include: Alabama, Virginia, New York, California, Florida, Louisiana, and Maryland.
You would think that before ANYONE takes office they would have to present their credentials (i.e. birth certificate, social security card, driver’s license, high school diploma, and college transcripts) as anyone applying for a job with the government has to do. I believe this is what has the right so up in arms. If you present these documents to an employer and they are discovered to be false, you get fired or you don’t get the job in the first place. No one ever cleared the credentials to say Obama was able to hold this office…in fact, he wasn’t vetted properly by his own party! (Wrong form intentionally filed for DNC claiming Obama and Biden as their candidates without constitutional statement of eligibility. See story here.) So many inconsistencies will breed questions and conspiracy theories! It’s all coincidence you say? To each his own opinion, but do you really trust the government enough to just take their word for it? I’ve given you all the evidence to look through and research. It’s up to you to decide. If the shoe was on the other foot, how would you feel? Is it just party bias or is there really a conspiracy? For those of us that don’t align with either party, we just want the constitution to be followed to the “T” and if there is any question, one should be required to produce those documents immediately to quash any question of eligibility. It’s that plain and simple. So why make such a fiasco out of it? You either are eligible and can prove it, or you aren’t and can’t. So which is it, Mr. Obama?
