Posted on 01/04/2012 4:24:42 PM PST by Smokeyblue
A Jefferson County judge today set a Monday hearing on a lawsuit challenging President Barack Obama's citizenship and right to be on the 2012 ballots in Alabama.
Circuit Judge Helen Shores Lee will consider a request by Mark Kennedy, chairman of the Alabama Democratic Party, to dismiss the suit filed against him on Dec. 14 by Birmingham resident Albert E. Hendershot.
The hearing will start at 9 a.m. Jan. 9 in Lee's Birmingham courtroom.
Hendershot wants Lee to issue an injunction blocking Obama from being certified as a candidate in Alabama. His suit claims he has "staggering evidence" that Obama is using a forged birth certificate and a false Social Security number.
"Barack Hussein Obama II is not a natural born citizen and is not qualified to be on the ballot as a presidential candidate," Hendershot wrote in his suit, which he said is part of an informal effort in several Southern states to keep Obama off ballots in those states.

We’ve been this far before. Somehow they always get dismissed. I’m too jaded to get excited about this round.
Staggering is a good word for it.
Woman judge = Dismissal
Worse than that. She's a Democrat that went through social services employment (as a clinical psychiatrist) before becoming a judge. She is also black, and seemingly harbors racial resentment.
She reached a breaking point one day when a group of white kids in a car began circling the block around her familys home. They stopped many times in front of the house and, each time told the family to go home while using a racial epithet.
Her father told her to ignore them, but Lee, then 12, decided otherwise.
I tried to ignore them, but they didnt go away, Lee said. Unbeknownst to my father, I knew where he kept his Colt 45 in the house. Quietly, I went into the house and removed it from its holster. I came back on the front porch and waited for them to come back down the hill again, she said. They did, shouting the same obscenities. I stood up, took aim and as I prepared to fire, my father saw me and deflected the shot in the air, Lee said.
He told her that if she had hit one of the group, she would likely have spent the rest of her life in prison.
Lee grew up angry because of the violence her family faced.
I will bet this is going absolutely nowhere in Alabama.
Wow. I didn’t know that. Thanks for posting.
OTOH e know how she stand on second amendment. ;~)

Does anyone know how many states have cases challenging his eligibility to be on the ballot?
How is it that every time a “conservative” issue goes before a court it is always assigned to a “liberal” judge, but not the other way around.
Conservatives need to do exactly what the Lberals do...they Judge Shop! And if they dont get the judge they want, they simply dismiss their own case and re-file at a later time until they get the judge they want.
It seems like every Obama Eligibility case, Immigration Law Cases, etc. goes before a minority Obama or Clinton appointee
The supremes need to grab the NBC issue and issue a decision before we get too far into next year.
Last year the White House released copies of Obama's long-form birth certificate saying he was born in Hawaii in 1961.
Wrong-o. Was a copy of material abstracted from "data on file" at the Hawaii DOH. The WH apparently re-copied it on some more "official" looking stock, and allowed the MSM to call it a copy of the Birth Certificate. It is not. It is, repeat, an ABSTRACT.
Federal judges dismissed lawsuits in 2008 and 2009 challenging Obama's citizenship and right to serve as president.
Of course, no court has agreed to hear the cases on their merits. All have been dismissed for "lack of standing" and other procedural concerns. As Hendershot is a private citizen, I expect the dismissal will be along similar lines. Although a Judge at this level has the discretion to issue an injunction pending the presentation of the candidates's bona fides, somehow I doubt that will happen.
Were I of a cynical nature, I might even have the wee suspicion of a set-up designed to make the GA case look "racist."
An official of the Alabama Board of Elections (or equivalent) needs to join Hendershot's call for an injunction.
Trust me, this woman is LIBERAL personified and this case will be dismissed within 10 minutes. Besides the fact that she’s dumb as a box of rocks and probably LOVES her some BHO. Sickening is not the word! Guarantee you, the defense attorney had something to do with her getting this case, as if that would surprise anybody. Disgusted!
“She is also black, and seemingly harbors racial resentment.”
Ah... but we are moving into a different stage of the game now.
BHO, by giving Congress the finger with these illegal and unconstitutional appointments, is seriously moving into “separation of powers” territory.
The Supremes have been more than diplomatic in their relationship with Obama, but I don’t think there is very much love lost in either direction. Obama could be giving them a perfect tool with which they can slap him silly.
This could get interesting.
Sorry, can’t fix the bad formatting in my previous message.
i would love to see a court judge show, any of those TV court shows taking on the Obama case.
If not that create one with a real judge in a studio and post it on the web.
If needed find a way to get it broadcasted.
With the addition of Commie Kagan and the Wise Latina, this Court has been slapped silly already. Silly in love with the Mombasa MF.
You have 4 Dependables and 5 Wobblers. Out of the 5 Wobblers, you have 3 who would tear up the Constitution and feed it to the dog. A rather low point in the Court's history, I'd say, with the Liberals still looking for payback on the Dred Scott decision.
The 4 Dependables are starting to piss me off, too. Where the hell are they? You also have to remember that the machinery of the court ... clerks and especially the employees ... in its day-to-day operations is slightly to the left of Gorbachev. They can, will, and have put the fix in on the eligibility issues.
Never forget for a moment that Washington DC is Democrat country, lock stock, and barrel. The Republicans have no voice in the machinery of government. Haven't had since the 1930's. In fact many of your favorite House and Senate members staff their offices with .... Democrats.
It looks exactly like the sort of thing I believe in. I will certainly consider joining it.
Thanks for the ping!
At the link I provided he has three followup videos that answer questions and criticisms he received.
Now about these documents. We are simply not ever going to know exactly what the heck document the lawyer The Mombasa Chappie sent to Honolulu got from the DOH.
Suffice it to say it was not a "Certified Copy of a Birth Certificate." The DOH described it as an "Abstract of Data on File." The White House admitted as much for about the first 15 minutes.
What they haven't admitted in so many words is that they or someone took the contents of that document and rearranged them in a more presentable form (from their POV)and digitally created what the MSM obligingly accepted as a copy of the BC, and printed it on more "official" looking stock, or just put the stock pattern in their digital doc.
No big deal, any good MAC driver in any graphic arts studio or Kinko's in Anytown, USA coulda done it. And Mimi, it certainly was good enough for Government Work.
Any elected Republican official will tell you that "he was born in Hawaii." You, I, and Sheriff Joe know better. Team Obama is going to brazen this out. The heck with Superbowl. Let's see who wins this shootout!
Is there anything new to report on this story?
As expected the judge dismissed it. See post #7. This is more about the judge than the actual merits of the case.
Judge dismisses suit to keep Obama off Ala. ballot
A state judge has dismissed a lawsuit aimed at keeping President Barack Obama off the ballot in Alabama this year.
Circuit Judge Helen Shores Lee ruled Monday in Birmingham against a complaint that argued Obama isn’t a natural-born U.S. citizen and can’t legally serve as president. The judge’s ruling followed a brief hearing.
Thanks. All so frustrating!!!!
