Skip to comments.OBAMA ELIGIBILITY COURT CASE…BLOW BY BLOW
Posted on 01/28/2012 5:48:45 PM PST by GrandmaPatriot
Given the testimony from todays court case in Georgia, Obama has a lot of explaining to do. His attorney, Jablonski, was a NO SHOW as of course, was Obama.
The following is a nutshell account of the proceedings.
The case revolved around the Natural Born clause of the Constitution and whether or not Obama qualifies under it to serve. More to the point, if found ineligible, Obamas name would not appear on the 2012 ballot in Georgia.
Over the last several weeks, Obamas attorney, Michael Jablonski, had attempted several tactics to keep this case from moving forward. He first tried to have it dismissed, then argued that it was irrelevant to Obama. After that, Jablonski argued that a state could not, under the law, determine who would or would not be on a ballot and later, that Obama was simply too busy with the duties of office to appear.
After all these arguments were dispatched by the Georgia Court, Jablonski, in desperation, wrote to the Georgia Secretary of State attempting to place Obama above the law and declared that the case was not to he heard and neither he nor his client would participate.
Secretary of State, Brian Kemp, fired back a letter hours later telling Jablonski he was free to abandon the case and not participate but that he would do so at his and his clients peril.

Ya know - the thing about making threats is if you don't follow through, your credibility suffers.
Got a working link? Thank you!

The link in the post worked for me...Took me here:
"Georgia lawyers are bound by strict rules of ethics in all of their professional dealings. The Georgia Rules of Professional Conduct help define a lawyer's obligations to clients, to the judicial system, and to the public.
Although the Supreme Court of Georgia retains ultimate authority to regulate the legal profession, the State Bar of Georgia's Office of the General Counsel serves as the Court's arm to investigate and prosecute claims that a lawyer has violated the ethics rules.
The Rules of Professional Conduct are found at Part IV, Chapter 1 of the Bar Rules. Part IV, Chapter 2 contains the procedural rules for disciplinary actions against lawyers. In addition to the Rules, the Bar and the Supreme Court periodically have issued Formal Advisory Opinions that clarify a lawyer's obligations in certain situations. A complete list of Formal Advisory Opinions follows Part IV, Chapter 3 of the Bar Rules.
Lawyers who would like to discuss an ethics dilemma with a member of the Office of the General Counsel staff should contact the Lawyer Helpline at 404-527-8720, 800-334-6865 or by e-mail. Members of the public who believe that a Georgia lawyer has violated the rules of ethics should contact the Bar's Consumer Assistance Program at 800-334-6865 "
Is this case being held in a Federal Court - in Atlanta?
I’m surprised to find out that Jablonski is a GA attorney. I figured he was just one of several attorneys from DC that would represent the president. There’s absolutely no excuse for him not to have appeared as long as he is local and if I were the judge and the SOS, I would make sure he pays dearly for not appearing in the hearing. According to a search, he represents the Democrat Party of GA.
The only way out of this is for an apparent epidemic of apparent suicides to happen to all those testifying for the prosecution, not to mention the judge. Can you say “Vince Foster?”
That's the difference between a threat and a promise.
It is being held in Georgia so I assume it is Atlanta.
OH Ya!!! Vince Foster times 1000.
Thank you, Kept giving me a 404 error!
“Is this case being held in a Federal Court - in Atlanta?”
It is not a federal issue.
It involves only the state.
By the way, the posted link seems to have quit working, but
Nationalpatriot.com does work.
Ping for later...
LOL, Obama's attorneys disagree.
Thanks on Federal classification but is Court ‘in’ Atlanta or ‘where’? Anyone know; Perhaps I missed it?
Obama was hoping that the Georgia court would enter a default judgment rather than rule on the merits. If the court enters a default judgment, Obama will have succeeded in avoiding the Constitutional eligibility question. He will then appeal the default judgment, get the appellate court to suspend the default judgment pending appeal, and then delay the appeal until after the primary. This is undoubtedly Obamas plan."
