Judge: Obama eligible to be Georgia candidate
A state administrative law judge on Friday flatly rejected challenges seeking to keep President Barack Obama from being a candidate in next month's Georgia primary.
In a 10-page order, Judge Michael Malihi dismissed one challenge that contended Obama has maintained a Hawaiian birth certificate that is a computer-generated forgery, has a fraudulent Social Security number and invalid U.S. identification papers. He also turned back another that claimed the president is not a natural born citizen.
Last month, Malihi heard testimony and took evidence in a hearing boycotted by Obama's lawyer.
With regard to the challenge that Obama does not have legitimate birth and identification documents, Malihi said he found the testimony presented by lawyers of the so-called "birther" movement and their evidence "to be of little, if any, probative value and thus wholly insufficient to support plaintiffs' allegations."
A number of the witnesses who testified about the alleged fraud were never qualified as experts in birth records, forged documents and document manipulation, Malihi wrote. "None of the testifying witnesses provided persuasive testimony," he wrote.

“natural born citizen” has nothing to do with the location of one’s birth. You’re real close, at least you didn’t bring up the Lamaze birth.
He’s been a thorn in our butts for a long time. There are still quite a few out there but that’s for another day.
So...The thing to do is prepare for when the SHTF, because it is inevitably coming. The only glue that has held our nation's experiment in self-rule together is the basic morality, honesty, and good will of the citizenry. That glue is no longer there.
Of course it makes him happy, but probably not as happy as his ZOT makes me. :P
Ok let’s say for the sake of arguement the birth certificate is “real” check. And the several experts say it was fake are wrong..check. And the girl who ran the SS# and found it was issued to someone in 1890 was inept...check. All facts were inconclusive to make a judgement or whatever...check. HOW does the judge explain that in Obamas on book “Dreams of my Father” said his dad was Kenyan when that means he could be a natural born citizen if both parents are not US citizens. I looked it up and they pitched a fit about McCain and had him turn over his info cause he was born in Panama however his dad was in service stationed there and both parents were US citizens. One more question..does this now mean that if I am subpeoned to court I can blow them off and not show up??? Obama is not who he says he is or he would not have spent millions to cover it up, if he couldn’t be in court (not) he would have gotten documents and sent his attorney. He didn’t show up didn’t send attorney and was In contempt of court but judge says he won’t file contempt of court. Obama needs GA votes to win again.. looks llike he has shown once again “I AM ABOVE THE LAW”
Which is rather curious since no legal proof has been presented to the courts to prove that Obama was born in the U.S.
The assistant vice-chancellor in New York ignored Supreme Court precedent from Inglis v. Sailor’s Snug Harbour that disproved his belief. There’s a reason why this case is NOT quoted as precedence.
actually, the ruling was that the judge didn’t see the evidence as being compelling. of course, this doesn’t mean that the defense, which never showed up, carried their burden of proof... proof that the candidate was eligible
unless the defendant WAS represented... by the judge
this ruling does not state how he is eligible to be on the ballot
The under the radar lib dogz left the building. See above.
Knowing that, the judge simply did not want to be the one who went against a sitting president, since he wouldnt be the final rule anyway. So, he played it safe.
The significant thing that happened here was that by allowing the case to be heard, he gave it standing and let it into the system.
This will be decided by the USSC, or not at all.
Praying you're right.
I believe we're getting there, but there are a lot of switchbacks and hairpin curves as we ascend the mountain.
“Stop gasping for breath, people. Think it through - no matter who won at this level, it would be appealed.”
Maybe I am overly optimistic and looking at this as the “glass half full”. But perhaps Malahi has done the plaintiffs a favor in this ruling? If he had judged this in favor of the plaintiffs, it would only be a recommendation to the SOS and may not go anywhere after that. Or even if the SOS did rule against Obama, he could just give up on Georgia and move along since Georgia is a red state anyway.
With this outcome, the plaintiffs now have the opportunity to continue the appeals process to a higher court. Isn’t it in their best interest for this to be appealed all the way to SCOTUS??
There might have been, in the past, but times have changed.
Common Law is trumped by legislation.
The Constitutional “Natural Born Citizen” language has remained valid, of course, but the definition of that term can and has been changed by Congress.
It has always been true that a Natural Born Citizen was a Citizen from the moment of birth. That was harder to achieve under Common Law rules, but those rules no longer control the matter.
John F. Kennedy hints at the threat of secret societies. He is talking about communism, but he is ALSO talking about the secret societies that run America behind the scenes. He is speaking out against the very people that assassinated him.
JFK was the first president to effectively use television to speak directly to the American people. No other president had conducted live televised press conferences without delay or editing.
Looks like he DID get tossed...
When did that happen?
I doubt that. Anybody who believed, even for a second, that any judge in any courtroom in this country was going to embrace any of this this birther nonsense is an idiot.
