I think the Constitution does not allow a judge to compel the POTUS to appear in court while he is in office. In other words, he cannot threaten him with contempt of court penalty. However, I believe he could rule in favor of the complainant and strike his name from the Georgia ballot if he does not appear.
Well, well, well indeed.
But, if Georgia keeps him off the ballot due to his failure to provide proper documentation, then other states can do the same thing. A new case was just filed in California. IL has a case and NH has a case and they can use this to decide to keep him off their ballots too.
Yes, I totally agree. Obama can't even get past step one.
Stand up, judge! Wot? Oh.. never mind.
What he does is irrelevant. The plaintiffs are suing to keep him off the Georgia ballot. If they win, then the State of Georgia may not print his name on ballots. No doubt he's going to lose Georgia anyway, but this will become a national story. Even his most avid supporters who believe his fable, will ask, "Why stay off the ballot? Why not just provide the documentation?" That's when the facade will begin to crumble.
It *IS* a real loss. He isn't LOSING Georgia, he is getting KICKED OFF THE BALLOT in Georgia because he was DISQUALIFIED.
I have been blowing this trumpet for three years. If he gets kicked off the ballot in ANY state, the media will not be able to explain why he would allow this to happen rather than just show an original birth certificate. The ONLY person that would do such a thing is one that has no other choice.
If he gets kicked off the ballot in ANY state, it will create more inquiry and more doubt about his legitimacy. If he cannot prove his legitimacy, it will cause people to question the legality of all of his acts. This has the potential to force him out of office and rescind much of what he has done. (although I think that will be too much to ask for.)
This could turn out to be a very big deal.
Calling all foreign and domestic aspirin factories. Be on the alert between now and 1/26/12.
“If he gets kicked off the ballot in ANY state, it will create more inquiry and more doubt about his legitimacy.

Great point. I hope this comes to pass.
Since when is golfing a Presidential duty?
Presidents and Subpoenas
Since United States v. Nixon, executive branch claims of immunity from the normal processes of the American legal system have been tempered by the fact that the constitutional demands of due process of law and justice are likely to outweigh claims of executive immunity from subpoenas.
Didn’t Clinton have to testify?
Amongst reasonable people, his facade will start to crumble, but I can just hear it from his supporters.
Everything from “it shouldn’t matter, he shouldn’t have to show it” to “they didn’t ask any white guys for their birth certificates”.
Holy Crap things are getting interesting:
Sat - Newt crushes in SC
Thur - Obama disqualified from GA ballot
Fri - Riots
Does Obama have to pay royalties??
I think this is about the Democrat primary ballot. Since he has no national opponent, it would be meaningless as far as him receiving the party’s nomination. What other impact it could have, I don’t know.
If one cannot qualify for the primary ballot, one cannot qualify for the general ballot either.
As I understand it a Federal Court, I think it was the Ninth Circuit Court, Disallowed a suit because the plaintiffs had no standing the reason given was that they DID have standing until the Election or maybe the inauguration for Obama was held.
But once that event occurred they no longer had standing only the Congress of the United States had standing and that was pretty much limited to impeachment proceedings.
Now with that logic then in this election season the President has two roles, One is as a seated President and the other is as a candidate running once more for his current office.
Therefore if my reasoning is correct, we as concerned citizens DO have standing as far as the person of the CANDIDATE for President is concerned and can voice our concerns via the Local And State Legal processes. We just don’t have any standing as far as the CURRENT President goes as long as he is ONLY in the role as President and not in the Role as Candidate for President.
Therefore a Lowly State Judge can have standing in enforcing the laws of his state on a current candidate for office.
Bookmark and (((ping)))
I have watched Obama singing several times. It sure sounds and looks like he is saying “I” instead of “I’m”
True, but not being included on just one state’s ballot will open this thing to an entirely new level.
The good people of GA need to find and fund professional personal security folks to insure this Judge does not fall victim to an “accident” or other means of demise....
While you are correct, see my post at #50, if GA says he is not qualified for the state primary ballot then hence he is not qualified for the general election ballot in GA either.....
If he does not qualify for the primary ballot in Georgia, then how could he be permitted to run in the November election there? Does the federal government's authority supersede state authority for federal elections? How can that be legal when the SOS for each state must certify the eligibility of the candidates?
Thank you for the ping!
This administrative law judge is treating the defendant as no more than a (insert your favorite expletive here) politician who is on the campaign trail. Singing at the Apollo may have been a tap dance too far.
One hopes the subpoena provides he is to bring a certified copy of a BC for examination by the court. If so, and a professional examination reveals no defects, then he is on the ballot pending resolution of the foreign father element. Alas, there has been any number of years to prepare such a document; in which event, the “original of it” no doubt resides in the HI archives.
However, if the examination identifies defects, or if he doesn’t produce such a document, he ought to be toast! (At least in GA.)
The picture of Obarry with the golf club behind his back reminds me of the scene in ‘The Ten Commandments” where Moses, standing before Pharoah, is bound by chains , with his arms secured by his staff wrapped around his back.
HA, I posted the same thing as you were at the same time. This thread is growing too fast!
I have written my governor, Christie of NJ and the Secretary of State to have obummer prove his eligibility. Now if that happens we will have something. I am not holding my breath on this though.
To “The Working Man”, I think you are correct. That is how I see it too. Once 0zer0 was inaugerated, there is nothing the citizens can do. Only Congress could impeach him, and that won’t happen. The only hope is to challenge him as a candidate for re-election and have him removed from the ballots. Then he has to be elected as write-in.
I suspect the next line of attack from 0zer0 will be to play the race card against this Old Confederate State. If he can whip up the crazy occupy crowd and align them with blacks and have a few riots, then he can run against a “do nothing congress” and “ultra conservative rascits thugs tyring to deny the black man”.
The last thing he will do is produce his LFBC. Allowing himself to be removed from the Georgia ballot works to his favor in his twisted hate America world. We have to be prepared for dirt the likes of which we have never seen before. 0zer0’s narcissim will never allow him to quit, but will make him take down everyone else around him.
You are close.
It was the Taitz case with Judge Carter presiding (Keyes v Obama) in late 2009.
Judge Carter ruled that candidates, even those from minor third parties, have standing to challenge eligibility, up to the time of the election.
Citizens still don’t have standing because it is the electors that actually vote for POTUS. We vote for the electors.
Question: Would BO be stricken from the general election ballot should he not make the primary ballot?
The "truth" is self evident. Obama is NOT a natural born Citizen.
Keep the faith, politicians can turn on a dime. Especially, once they are able to get their brain around the obvious.
Agreed. Maybe I should have said proof of the truth so blatant and clear that the MSM can’t ignore it.
Great news. A quick question, Will this apply to both the Primary and the general election? If it does, this is bigger than Georgia. The public will want to know Obama can’t back up his claims. Also, other courts will probably feel less presure to make the same type of ruling(s). I can’t wait for Sheriff Joe’s investigation to be revealed. I believe he knows something “new” because Obama & Co. are really scared of Joe.
I don’t think a winning write in candidate is acceptable if they are not in the end willing to prove their eligibility.
Yeah, like that’s going to happen.
Interesting, nothing appearing about the order for Obama to appear in court in the media so far, at least according to google and yahoo news searches for “Mahili.”
Well Gov Dude, yes to answer your question. See my post at #50 and #77
I think a write in candidate, would have a hard time winning. But, if he gets the most votes, then the next question will be will the electors actually vote for him? That is the constitutional question you bring up. Buth this question won’t happen to deny anyone from writing in a candidates name. That is the freedom to vote for whoever you want, even Mickey Mouse. So you can’t stop someone from writing in Barack Obama, but that doesn’t mean he will get the electors vote. That’s when the real constitutional fight begins.
Georgia Deputy Chief Judge Michael Malihi
edit - I think a write in candidate, would have a hard time winning. But, if he gets the most votes, then the next question will be will the electors actually vote for him? That is the constitutional question you bring up. Buth this question wont happen to deny anyone from writing in a candidates name. That is the freedom to vote for whoever you want, even Mickey Mouse. So you cant stop someone from writing in Barack Obama, but that doesnt mean he will get the electors vote. Thats when the real constitutional fight begins.
edit - Because the 2nd place finisher will have STANDING, and will challenge the eligibility.
You should also send it to Bret Baier at SpecialReport/Fox News. He’s the only one who has consistantly reported on this and similar cases.
From past experience multiple emails work best.
I hope Judge Malihi isn’t holding his breath. Barry is not going to appear. He will claim executive privilege. Of course the judge can just then keep him off the GA ballot which works for me.
How do we know he hasn't already?
Who has a photoshopped PDF file for a BC anyway? No body!
His SS is from Connecticut! Yet no one has shown the # he first used with the US employer Masonic and Robins 33 degrees CIA Ice cream in Havaii.
