Team defending Obama, Biden warns of 'costs, expenses, fees'
A Washington, D.C., law firm defending President Obama in a lawsuit challenging his eligibility to be president that earlier was tossed by a district judge because the issue already had been "twittered" now is threatening sanctions against opposing counsel if he doesn't withdraw his appeal of that decision.
The warning from Robert F. Bauer of the Washington firm Perkins Cole was delivered via letter to the plaintiff's attorney, John D. Hemenway. It is not the first such warning issued. Lawyers trying to kill a similar California lawsuit filed on behalf of Ambassador Alan Keyes also said they would seek sanctions against the plaintiff's attorneys in that case unless they left the issue of the president's eligibility alone.
The warning from Bauer noted that the firm represented Obama and Vice President Joe Biden in the case brought on behalf of Gregory S. Hollister, a retired military officer who is subject to being recalled to duty and, therefore, would need to know the legitimacy of any order coming from Obama.
"For the reasons stated in Judge Robertson's ruling, the suit is frivolous and should not be pursued," the letter warned. "Should you decline to withdraw this frivolous appeal, please be informed that we intend to pursue sanctions, including costs, expenses and attorneys' fees, pursuant to Federal Rule of Appellate Procedure 38 and D.C. Circuit Rule 38."
Hemenway. But Robertson quickly backed away when Hemenway noted the judge had cited hearsay in his ruling. Hemenway argued that if he was going to be penalized, he was eligible to a discovery hearing in which he could see documentation of what the judge cited as fact.

The Obot lawyers must know that they are in such a crappy and weak position in defending Obama.
The Lord hates corrupt judges.
Select capable men from all the people—men who fear God, trustworthy men who hate dishonest gain—and appoint them as officials over thousands, hundreds, fifties and tens. Have them serve as judges for the people at all times, but have them bring every difficult case to you the simple cases they can decide themselves. That will make your load lighter, because they will share it with you.
Do not pervert justice do not show partiality to the poor or favoritism to the great, but judge your neighbor fairly. Leviticus 19:15
Do you rulers indeed speak justly? Do you judge uprightly among men? No, in your heart you devise injustice, and your hands mete out violence on the earth. Even from birth the wicked go astray from the womb they are wayward and speak lies. Psalm 58:1-3
Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly defend the rights of the poor and needy. Proverbs 31:8-9
Hurry up and dump this scammer, we need the new holiday in his ‘’honor’’.
What we discussed a day ago. And see rxsid article right above this thread:
The thing that I think will be the pull string on the undoing of Obama is the problems with his Selective Service Registration. For what it is worth, the whole doom ,they got the momentum thing that has been hanging over my psyche like the sword of Damocles lifted about a week ago or so.
Which part the Selective Service Registration part or the sword of damocles part?
No, the “the whole doom ,they got the momentum” thing.
I just put that out there to see if anyone else was feeling like the momemtum that the crazys had, thus the feeling of doom, had turned in the direction of the good guys. I wasn’t refering to the economy or anything just the whole us versus them thing.
I’m curious about the Selective Service thing.
There is IMHO a significant supernatural element to this. In a saner time, an Obama wouldn’t even have gotten the nomination.
I am about to expose my internet ignorance but what does IMHO mean. There are numerous places on the internet to read about the problems with Obamas Selective Service Registration. Just google Obama Selective Service Registration Fraud. DebbieSchlussel.com has a good explanation with the actual form ,showing the problems with it with explanations of the problems.
In My Humble Opinion.
Thanks. I have been meaning to google internet lingo and printing out a list. I have now been shamed into doing it.
He must be a DU pant trying to proyrct Zero, he’s only been here 13 days.
If we had a nation of informed, intellegent people, this would scare the crap out of everyone.
A President who REFUSES to show he is even eligible to sit on the seat he RULES from is threatening anyone who dares to challenge him?
I just crack myself up...
That’s one thing I love about FR (Free Republic). You can get a helpful, straight answer without a bunch of static.
As a new emplyoyee I remember attending a human resource (HR) meeting one time and they kept talking about “POS”. It was so distracting that I finally asked, and I explained to them what “POS” meant at my old job. I noticed at meetings after that when they used various abbreviations they used the whole words the first few times before going into the acronyms.
These Obama lawyers are charging somebody a lot of fee’s.
Where is the money coming from?
Is Obama paying this personally? Is it campaign funds?
Sarah Palin cant have a defense fund and yet Obama is spending millions to hide his birth certificate. WTF is going on here.?
These millions arent being spent for nothing. The fact that he is spending them is proof that something has not been exposed in that document.All he has to do is produce a document and it goes away. Or he does. And thats why it cannot be shown.
I was with a group designing a “Point of Sale” system.
I tried to get them to use a different acronym...
But, no, we designed a POS system.
