Obama regime has begun to fall apart
The Post and Email ^ | Dec. 4, 2009 | John Charlton

WHEN LAWYERS LEAVE ONE AFTER THE OTHER, THERE HAS TO BE A LEGAL PROBLEM

The Department of Justice announced yesterday that Deputy U.S. Attorney General, David Ogden, the second highest ranking official under Eric Holder, would resign on February 10th and return to private practice.

Nia-Malika Henderson, writing for Politico.com, a markedly liberal leaning site, could not deny the facts:

The second-in-command at the Justice Department is leaving his post, officials announced Thursday — making him the third top Obama legal official to announce his departure in recent weeks.

Deputy Attorney General David W. Ogden will return to private practice in February. White House General Counsel Greg Craig will step down in January, and Phillip Carter, a top Defense Department deputy assistant secretary dealing with detainee issues, has already left.

Ogden’s annoucement follows news that the White House ordered an open attack on the free speech rights of Commander Charles Kerchner and the Washington Times this week.

The resignation of Craig followed revelations that the Department of Health in Hawaii refuses to explain what “filed by” means on Obama’s alleged HI Certification of Live Birth, a document which the current White House Chief Counsel, Robert Bauer, would not bring himself to ask the court in the Hollister case to take judicial notice of, so confident he is in its authenticity.

As for Carter, his resignation is what any decent American would do in a similar case.

Ogden’s public statement was long and verbose, but no where in it does he explain where he is going, a fact normally contained in resignation letters, when there is a personal reason for seeking better employment. It must be concluded therefore, he left for internal reasons in the Deparment. Whether this was on account of Holder’s decision to move the terrorists’ trial to New York City, or the Kerchner Advertorial which makes it undeniably public that Obama is not legally qualified for the office of U.S. President, because he is a British citizen, is unclear as of this morning.

Odgen’s resignation is all the more remarkable since he took his job as chief operations officer at the Deparment of Justice in May. His decision to resign, therefore is a career U-turn.

FBI Deputy Director, John Pistole issued a letter in response to Odgen’s resignation, wishing him well; a letter which perhaps indicates that Ogden’s resignation had something to do with his siding with the FBI against policy decisions of the Obama regime. Clearly Obama’s handling of the Ft. Hood shooting was grounds enough for that.

Even the Huffington Post attempts to cover for the peculiarity of Ogden’s decision, by emphasizing his statements that he will be returning to private practice, without however stating what that will be.

For normal Americans, Obama’s legal problem is a no-brainer. For Obama supporters, who are so devoted to him that they checked their brains at the door, they can’t figure it out.

Ogden’s appointment caused a stern reaction from Christians and conservaties through the country, on account of his history defending the porn industry and his strong advocay of abortion.

My guess would be that we can get Holder out about the 5th of Never.

referenced link in article:

ADMISSION MADE IN EMAIL TO CONCERNED CITIZEN

Todays newest revelation discounts entirely the authenticity of the information on the alleged COLB, which bears the notation “Date filed by Registrar.”

It has been speculated for nearly 3 months, by concerned citizens who have examined the rules of other departments of Vital Statistics accross the country that this designation, “filed by” indicates “submitted to, but not yet accepted as verified.”

The writer suggests legal problems, but doesn’t speculate as to what they might be. Any ideas? Would this have to do with something we’ve been talking about (like a birth certificate), or are there other things churning beneath the surface?

Clicking on the link will bring up an outstanding picture of the beauteous Janet Reno introducing David Ogden—who looks like he was about 15 years old at the time.

There are just so MANY “legal problems” with this bunch, I was just wondering which ones are compelling the “legal” staff to jump ship. Or maybe it’s all of them?

Yes, it’s the “hidden” part that bothers a lot of us. Back when this question first came up, I was convinced it was something that would just come back to embarrass us when at some point he’d pull out a perfectly valid birth certificate for all to see. That never happened, and so I was added to the numbers of “birthers” who REALLY want to see that document. And several others that are being hidden away.

Interesting. if you follow some of the links in the underlying article, they WILL lead to a column which alludes to the legal issues that may be responsible for these sudden resignations:

http://www.thepostemail.com/2009/12/03/white-house-orders-attack-on-washington-times/

“Okubo’s response also now makes her liable for criminal charges of conspiracy to use her office under color of the law to defraud the general public.”

Sure looks like we can stop a lot of Obama’s damage in 2010,
at the same time, I sure can’t see this charade continuing for the next 3 years.
I’m not a fortune teller, but I sure feel like “somethings” coming. Kinda like Tiger Wood’s wife had to know.........

Before any of these three attorneys resigned, the U.S. Attorney in D.C. to whom Leo Donofrio asked people to send letters resigned. (I think his last name was Taylor) He resigned not long after receiving several letters from Donofrio’s readers requesting that he file a quo warranto on Obama.

Never lose sight of the possibility that the whole thing is a put up scam. For $2 million keeping the Long Form hidden, Obozo has kept an army of opposition sleuths chasing this particular objective. Compared to $300 million buying a Senatorial vote, that's small potatoes. Keep perspective. Never let go, but keep perspective!

No worries, Barry is spending Christmas in Hawaii with his sister, you know, going over granny's things, sharing memories and tears....and what do you know! Tucked away in her Bible......little Barry's "carefully aged" Birth Certif!

And all this time, he was covering for the fact that it was lost, just knowing, knowing that somehow he'd find it! A Christmas Miracle!!!!

There is a reason why he didn't visit Kenya on his recent "African Apology Tour."

For starters, he and his keepers didn't want to deal with signs like "Welcome Home Barack," and news stories like "Local Boy Makes Good - Returns To Land Of His Birth."

How many on FR can continue to deny that the claims of the Birthers are without justification?

How many can deny that Obama is a dangerous Usurper?

Moving the terrorist trials to New York could really be a dealbreaker for some legal people.

Note that both Craig and Carter were specifically involved with Guantanamo and detainee issues.
