Skip to comments.Birther or believer? (Judge rules in favor of trial challenging Obama's eligibility)

Urban Dictionary defines a 'birther' as "A person who believes that Barack Obama has controversy and/or fraud surrounding his birth "
At last count, at least 17 lawsuits had been filed in 17 different states questioning Barack Obama's status as an American citizen and his right to prop his feet up on the desk in the Oval Office.
One of those lawsuits will now get the chance to see the light of day.
Dr. Orly Taitz, attorney for Alan Keyes in Keyes vs. Obama, announced late this evening that a judge has ruled in favor of Mr Keyes' request for a trial to discover whether or not Obama is an American citizen and, as such, entitled to be President of the United States of America.
Two weeks ago, World Net Daily posted a story outlining the difficulties Taitz encountered in attempting to serve the President with a subpoena. Taitz has filed multiple legal actions around the country alleging Obama does not meet the constitutional requirements to occupy the Oval Office.
Monday's hearing was on a request by Taitz for a default judgment, since she notified the president of the action weeks ago, and his lawyers failed to respond.
U.S. District Judge David O. Carter ruled in favor of Taitz and granted the "motion for reconsideration of order to show cause or in the alternative to certify question for appeal.". A trial date will be set and Taitz "will immediately request access to Obama's birth records and other documentation that could determine his eligibility to occupy the Oval Office."
Bottom line? Whether one is a 'birther' or a 'believer,' this case will definitely be worth watching!
Excerpt: Bottom line? Whether one is a 'birther' or a 'believer,' this case will definitely be worth watching!
U.S. District Judge David O. Carter:
He was a Marine! Who received the Bronze Star and Purple Heart.
“Carter is a “Double Bruin,” having received both his bachelor’s degree (B.A. 1967) and his law degree (J.D. 1972) from the University of California, Los Angeles. Carter graduated cum laude and was a candidate for the prestigious Rhodes Scholarship in 1967.
After graduating from college, Carter enlisted in the United States Marine Corps. He was promptly dispatched into service in Vietnam during the Vietnam War where he fought in the Battle of Khe Sahn in 1968. Carter was released as a First Lieutenant following his service in Vietnam. His military awards and decorations include a Bronze Star and a Purple Heart.”

Go look on PACER.
I believe that we have the Judge we were looking for!
You wrote: “I just want the judge to follow the rule of law as found in the Constitution and then let the chips fall where they may.”
I have no idea what PACER is.....Can any of you help?
Where is this court ?
Federal Court, Santa Ana, CA.
Thanks.... just getting ready to post it... Do you have/need the name of the judge?
I think we will have a real chance of having this examined in an honest fashion.
Should we break out the popcorn?
Dr. Orly’s website and PayPal:
This is for real, then ?
Another article regarding Obama’s eligibility court hearing.
My attitude with this one is wait and see.
Obama’s lawyers havent kicked in yet.
Will he try to block it? Will he succeed?
Will the case be heard impartially?
Calpernia is saying that it isn’t, but I don’t know what PACER is or how to use it to check the information.....I do know we waited up really late last night hoping to get more information and found article posted by AP and LA TIMES...
