Judge rules Obama must PROVE presidential eligibility in Georgia courtroom Thursday
Coach is Right ^ | 1/23/2012 | Doug Book

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 Obama’s 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 Obama’s 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.

Would that count as “contempt of court”, with all the associated legal trauma?

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.

This is going to real unpopular, but ...

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.

I understand the drive and motivation to find Obama ineligible. Personally I think he might well be ineligible.

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.

I believe candidate Obama would have to appeal through the Georgia state courts up to and including the Georgia Supreme Court. The only path for him in Federal court would be to prove the Georgia candidate qualifying process is discrimintory and unconstitutional.

A sitting president becomes a candidate if he wishes to run for a second term. Candidates must meet the qualifying criteria in each state if they wish to be on the ballot.

Obama to Judge: (Bleep) you. I'm going to Vegas

Bad idea. Judges tend to dislike allowing a precedent like that. The judge is likely to thus rule in favor of the plaintiffs and declare that Obama's name be stricken from the Nov ballot. That will liven things up.

It would be real juicy if the appeal went to the Supremes, and they off-handedly asked Obama to produce TO THEM, the documents in question.

Thomas said SCOTUS was "evading" the issue. Evade is a negative word far worse than merely avoiding or ignoring or side stepping. That is very telling.

This particular challenge is for the DNC primary ballot for March.

It would be real juicy if the appeal went to the Supremes

A ruling by the administrative judge is a recommendation for the SoS. Two things can happen, the SoS can take the recommendation from the judge or make his own decision. I believe is not subject to appeal. But if it were it will only go to the GASC, it is not a federal issue.

Re: “It would be real juicy if the appeal went to the Supremes, and they off-handedly asked Obama to produce TO THEM, the documents in question.”

Two plaintiff’s “real” lawyers (not Taitz) aren’t reying on any documents.

They are relying on the fact that Barack Obama, at birth, was a British subject and citizen of Kenya — a fact he admits to on his campaign website — and documented on each of his bogus birth documents.

Born a brit — he’s not legit!

The sitting Governor of the Great State of Georgia is a Birther, and it wouldn’t suprise me one bit if he’s behind this gambit.

Oh, and the secretary of State, who is responsible for approving who’s on the ballot is a conservative Republican.
