Skip to comments.Judge rules Obama must PROVE presidential eligibility in Georgia courtroom Thursday
Posted on 01/23/2012 9:02:19 AM PST by Oldpuppymax
For those who have waited 3 years for a judge to finally rule that Barack Hussein Obama must prove that he is legally and Constitutionally qualified to run for or serve as President of the United States, the day may have come at last.
For on Friday, Georgia State Office of Administrative Hearings Judge Michael Malihi ruled that subpoenas demanding the presence of Barack Obama in his Georgia courtroom on January 26th along with the original form of his Hawaii birth certificate and information on his myriad Social Security numbers will remain in force.
Obama s attorney Michael Jablonski had filed a motion to quash those subpoenas, arguing if Obama were made to answer questions before the court it would [require] him to interrupt duties as President of the United States (1)
It was also Obamas claim that presidential electors and Congress, not the State of Georgia, hold the Constitutional responsibility for determining the qualifications of presidential candidates. (1)
Well Judge Malihi did not agree with Obamas arguments that the laws of the State of Georgia were somehow irrelevant to the process, or that his presence in the court would materially interfere with his ability to discharge the duties of his office.
In his decision to allow the subpoenas to remain in force, Malihi wrote,
Defendant (Obama) has failed to cite any legal authority evidencing why his attendance is unreasonable or oppressive, or that testimony...

He won’t show up.
He knows sooner or later, he’ll find some liberal activist judge to throw the case out.
The ONE is above the law and answers to not even God.
Find another judge to tie this up for a decade...

Would that count as “contempt of court”, with all the associated legal trauma?
Where’s the pool on which excuse the idiot in chief will use for his non-appearance?
An educated guess of mine would be a no-show by Obama and the plaintiffs win judement by default. Obama the canidate would not appear on the Georgia ballot.
Not for the messiah.
Isn’t he already in contempt on another matter?
Has any major news outlet even reported on this because this is serious business now.
Doesn’t the FBI or CIA have anything on this? What if there is fraud and those Social Security numbers are truly his?
The question is, how will the Georgia Supreme Court rule on this, and how fast can it get there?
I don't think the President should have to personally appear to answer a subpeona. That opens the door for every crackpot liberal judge to issue subpeonas when there is a republican in the White House.
"Just send your lawyers along with the requested documents ... that will be fine. Otherwise, you will not be on the ballot."
It’s going to be interesting if the judge rules against Obama, and orders his name to not be put on the ballot. At that point Obama isn’t a candidate in Georgia. He would have to appeal to get the judgement reversed. That means he has to go through each higher court in Georgia. I think the law is you have to exhaust all of the state court avenues before jumping to the federal level.
Meanwhile he’s off the ballot and will be eliminated as write in. If it works in Georgia, expect copy cat lawsuits in several states.
This judge’s name is Michael Malihi which sounds very Hawaiian.
If he is part Hawaiian, I wonder what he knows?
I hate to say but I don’t think this strategy will do more than garner some bad press...if the press pays it any attention at all. Because eventually someone will point out that Obama obviously qualified for the 2008 ballot and therefore bringing it up in 2012 is effectively moot.
I would expect the US Supreme Court to rule this way and to take a punt on the matter.
But what makes you think that with all the resources at his disposal, he could be brought down by this? He can fabricate, lie, buy, blackmail, "disappear", or arrange for the untimely demise of anyone he wants to. Do you think that capability was unique to the Clintons?
This is a fun exercise and keeps some folks off the street, but it just ain't gonna work.
There's also the possibility, of course, that he actually can prove eligibility, and if cornered, will do so. I'm not saying I believe or have facts one way or the other, just that it's a possibility, too.
So,... best of luck with that.
Isn’t this the way he beats his opponents? By eliminating them? looks to me like turnaround is fair play....
Until the Dems move to overturn in Federal Court and the issue is placed on the 2014 calendar by the Federal Circuit in Atlanta.
