Skip to comments.Obama eligibility lawsuit reaches Supreme Court
Posted on 07/18/2012 10:00:44 AM PDT by Oldpuppymax
Of the dozens of lawsuits denying the constitutional eligibility of Barack Hussein Obama to be President of the United States, one has finally reached the docket of the Supreme Court. Should the Court accept the case for review, it will be the first upon which the justices will issue a substantive rulingone based on the merits.
On February 3rd, Georgia Administrative Court Judge Michael Malihi ruled that Barack Obama is eligible to appear on the Georgia ballot. It was a case during which Malihi received not one scrap of evidence from Obama or his attorney; subpoenas from plaintiffs were ignored; Obamas clear burden of proof was NOT imposed; plaintiffs motions for contempt were neither acted upon nor forwarded to higher courts and U.S. Supreme Court precedent took a back seat to the rambling, non-substantive pronouncement of dicta from an Indiana justice.
Yet in his 10 page ruling, Malihi had the monumental gall to claim This decision is entirely based on the law, as well as the evidence and legal arguments presented at the hearing. Malihis ruling was then rubber stamped through the Georgia Superior Court and eventually denied review by the states Supreme Court as both refused to apply basic principles of jurisprudence to the legally indefensible tripe offered by the Administrative Court judge.

But on June 28th, the Petition for Writ of Certiorari in Plaintiffs David Weldon, Carl Swensson and Kevin Richard Powell v Barack Obama was filed with the Supreme Court. These are the...

No way they will listen to this case ...
I know it is wild wishful thinking, but wouldn’t it be a hoot if Roberts decided the way he did with Obamacare knowing this would reach their docket and they WILL take up the case. :-)
Hey, a guy can dream!
(YAWN) ...they will do NOTHING regardless of the evidence.
‘Should the Court accept the case for review, it will be the first upon which the justices will issue a substantive rulingone based on the merits.’
LOL, good luck w/ ‘substantive ruling...based on the merits’ esp after the slop of Barrycare and Kelo. The Supreme Court is a joke mostly as are the other 2 branches. They could have been very different if the electorate had been awake...but that seems to have been too difficult.
We can no longer rely on the SCOTUS.
Wasn’t it Benjamin Franklin who said this Republic will last so long as the citizens trust the SCOTUS?
Obama is shredding this country.
Because the supreme court is so...fair and just, I’m sure they will be color blind to the case.
Sure they will in the next term after the election.
Big deal. Anytime I see...”reaches Supreme Court”, I stop reading. SCOTUS is worthless.
Can’t let anyone call you a racist now can you??
and regardless of what you do or say about obammy, if you challenge anything he says or does you are a f-ing racist.
Eligibility lawsuit reaches the SC but an illegibility lawsuit has to prove standing?
When I read the headline I was so hoping it was Col Lakin with a lawsuit! God Bless that man!
I watched that sham of a hearing in that GA courtroom. Decision based on no facts, the judge ruled what he wanted ‘because he can’.
They same type of judge NEWT addressed during the debates and had plans to reign in! Another Patriot who stood for Freedom and WeThePeople but America lost.
And then they won’t hear it because they’ll say it’s “moot”.
The next term of the USSC begins in October. Nothing will be done especially if Zero manages to win in Nov.
Based on past history, Big John will not allow this to proceed. He will cover for The 1. This will die as surely as all other cases have. We are stuck with The Kenyan Clown forever. We are cursed.
If they take the case the USSC won’t actually release the ruling until next June/July at the end of their session. Either (1) Obama will be an ex-president at that point, or (2) they will be dis-inclined by the election result to rule that Obama is ineligible. We know the latter because of the ‘courage’ (sarcasm) exhibited by Chief Justice Roberts in the Obamacare decision.
Nice legal exercise going nowhere.
Neither this court, nor congress will do a damned thing about this kenyan puke.
W/O the support of others, he couldn't! The country, with help of elected officials, has gone into the abyss with him leading the way. Evil seeks where the powers are to destroy what it wants to destroy. If 'the powers' are godless, evil has it's way.
There is a compelling need for the SCOTUS to rule on this matter, REGARDLESS of the consequences.
