Skip to comments.Outrageous: Judge Decides Law Doesn’t Apply To Obama
Posted on 07/08/2012 2:45:27 PM PDT by IbJensen
A Circuit Court has decided that Florida election law applies to everyone but Barack Hussein Obama. In response to a suit brought by Florida resident and Democrat Party member Michael Voeltz challenging Obamas eligibility to the Florida ballot, Circuit Court Judge Terry Lewis ruled that Florida election law is not applicable to the nomination of a candidate for Office of President of the United States. This means that the Florida Statute which says, the nomination of any person to office may be contested in the circuit court by any elector or any taxpayer is null and void when it comes to Mr. Obamas nomination to the presidency.
If the plaintiff was challenging the candidates eligibility for any other office, his analysis would be correct and [the law] would apply, said Lewis of Voeltzs suit. However, according to the Judge, Political parties determine their [presidential] nominee at a national convention pursuant to rules that the parties draft and approve In short, Mr. Voeltzs contest of Barack Obamas eligibility will NEVER be permitted in a Florida court; for voters do not nominate the president, political parties do in balloon filled convention halls! With this ruling, Lewis has spared Barack Obama the necessity of having to prove his eligibility for office as no Florida voter will have the right to question it, the language of the states election law notwithstanding!
Lewis also passed judgment on the natural born citizen challenge of plaintiff Voeltz, ruling that as Barack Obama is a citizen of the United States, he is also a NATURAL BORN citizen and therefore meets that constitutional requirement. The judge equated being a citizen with a natural born citizen and cited no authority to conclude the two terms are the same, exclaimed a stunned Larry Klayman, the attorney who handled the suit for Mr. Voeltz.
Perhaps the most remarkable of Lewis contentions was his statement that it is the plaintiffs burden to allege and prove that a candidate is not eligible. For the judge did not allow Klayman the right of discoverythe right to subpoena Obama for proof of his eligibility! How can you say we have the burden of proof, then not allow discovery? Klayman asked. He says we have burden, but doesnt allow us to meet it.
Klayman, the founder of Judicial Watch, went on to say The decision issued today by Judge Terry Lewis was poorly reasoned and written. It goes against prior Florida Supreme Court precedent in particular, thus making our chances on appeal great.
The bias and lack of honor displayed during the past year by the American legal system represents not only a threat to the Constitution, but to the continued existence of the Republic. When citizens mistrust the integrity of the court, they lose faith in their right to expect and receive justice. Klayman said if the Florida courts ultimately decide to obey their own election law, we will prevail in the end.
Unfortunately, ignoring both the law and the Constitution has become standard fare for the nations judges. Mr. Klayman may need a miracle if he expects the law to be fairly applied in his clients appeal.
How have so many in this country in positions of power decided to turn a blind eye to Obamas questionability? Its as if they just dont think the law appllies. Its as if Obama was to murder a 17 year old white kid, it would be seen as totally acceptable under the circumstances. If Obama didnt pay his taxes, it would be okay because Michelle was down for the struggle. If Obama stole a car and crashed it while smoking various substances and completely out of his mind, and the cops said the pressures of the office could mitigate this all would not only be good, but would not even be reported in the media. If Fox mentioned it, they would be dismissed as liars.
The judge was appointed to the bench by a Democrat governor. He must be beholden to the parry elite.
The “fix” is in ..... all the way up to SCOTUS.
I think there may be some very serious cases of judicial intimidation going on! Surely there is one honest judge in this Country who cannot be bought or intimidated?
Tell that to Al Gore.
I think a lot of these “judges” are afraid that they might be labeled as being “rasis” if they don’t side with Barry. Everybody Loves Barry. Especially the so called “courts”. Who needs the U.S. Constitution when they’ve got Barry?
How ironic: this is the same judge that decided Gore v. Bush in 2000.
I guess blind justice is above his pay grade.
I like absentee ballots in FL so I can google every judge that is on the ballot.
Klayman is a sort of Al sharpton or Jessie Jackson with a law degree
wed see a lot more common sense and less egomania and a lot more justice
Dictators don’t have to follow the law. If he gets elected, he will attempt to change our laws so he could stay in office forever. Don’t laugh at this one folks, that’s what dictators do. Then there will be only one way to get rid of him.
Well, that was 2000. Today, it’s the Chicago Way.
SHOCKING! Obama is above the Law! Shocking!
BTW, do you think that Traitor John Roberts had an influence with this Judge?
Larry Klayman ... this guy is snake bit ... has he ever won a case?
No challenge to Obamas legitimacy is ever going to go anywhere.
I just love these satire pieces.
Agreed. They’ve proven they can get to anyone. Anyone at all. If sending Col. Lakin to jail didn’t prove how serious they were about keeping the lid on, nothing will.
The truth is never going to come out as long as he’s in office. Afterwards? He might release it himself. It would be the ultimate F-U to a nation he obviously hates and did his best to destroy.
