Skip to comments.Georgia judge considered 'default' against Obama
Posted on 01/28/2012 3:09:53 PM PST by Panzerlied
Attorneys who argued in a Georgia court this week that Barack Obama isnt eligible to be president say Administrative Law Judge Michael Malihi considered granting a default judgment before they even argued the case.
That presumably could have recommended that Obama failed to prove his eligibility and therefore should not be on the 2012 ballot, since he and his lawyer snubbed the hearing, for which Obama was subpoenaed.

The best comment I read about this hearing, is that the non-appearance by Obama’s local attorney Michael Jablonski could lead to disciplinary actions by the Georgia Bar Association which would threaten the loss of his license to practice law.
Anyone choosing to launch an ethics probe of Mr. Jablonski’s willful neglect of his professional duties, can consult http://www.gabar.org/ethics
I hope this case leads to bigger things. I would love to see Obama’s name not placed on numerous state ballots.
Martial law,here we come.Obama will not go quietly you can bet on that.
What if 0bama gives orders to his people of a “not go quietly” nature and they simply turn to him and say “the jig is up, you’re done” and turn their backs on him?
It’s my assertion that there are a lot of people in his inner circle that know he’s ineligible and will only stick by him as long as there seems to be a chance of him getting away with his fraud. They’ll abandon his ship when it begins sinking.
It would be nice for some of these powers-that-be do something other than “consider” action; do something proactive, take a chance, jump into the water, make the decision for a default judgement, your career might skyrocket.
Since this is happening in a redstate, it may go nowhere, but if they can get this going in someplace like Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, or Michigan, Obama will go to political DEFCON ONE.
You obviously don’t know hard-core leftists very well.
Please be careful sir, your country is counting on you.
"If Obama were to appeal in Georgia, only this election is in play, and only as to Georgias ballots, but if he loses in Georgia, appealing to the SCOTUS brings in his entire eligibility, and the legitimacy of his current administration, Donofrio warned.The Narcissist-in-Chief really believes he can continue the charade.
My personal belief is that if the U.S. Supreme Court held that he was ineligible, he might simply ignore the ruling, and test the will of the nation, just as he is testing the will of the state of Georgia, he said.
If the judges recommendation and Ive been told that its going to be to disqualify Mr. Obama as a candidate is followed by the secretary of state, Mr. Obama has got a real problem, said Gary Kreep of the United States Justice Foundation."
Bless you Leo!
I know a few leftists, but not many. From what I’ve gleaned, they seem to be utopian wusses that talk a lot and claim to be the smartest guys in any room but don’t have the balls to put their own safety and well-being on the line if the odds turn against them. Fair-weather friends works for a good moniker for many leftists. I may be completely wrong, but wanted to throw the question out there for general consideration.
"You obviously dont know hard-core leftists very well."Oh I know them well, spineless wimps when push comes to shove.

Separation of powers, Federal vs. State jurisdiction, sovereign immunity, acceding to presumption of jurisdiction through presence... there are so many issue involved in subpoenaing the president of the U.S., and virtually none of them are being discussed.
But the bottom line is that Georgia is going to either block Obama from the ballot, or not. If they do, Obama will sue in FEDERAL court, and if he loses there it will go directly, do not pass go, do not collect $200, to the Supremes. if, that is, it doesn’t go directly to the top in the first place.
Yes, that's what happens when a defendant fails to appear and argue against the plaintiff. The plaintiff's case is laid out in the pleadings filed with the court; no supporting argument is generally required.
But how can the federal court claim jurisdiction when states are each allowed their own election rules?
The states made the federal, not the other way around.
It seems that someone smarter than I am would have a solid answer as to why Zero couldn’t sue in a federal court.
If 0bama is afraid to go directly to the courts, I look for action by Holder and the Dept of inJustice. Several states have to submit changes to their voting rules to the DOJ, under the Voting Rights Act. He might use this to force the usurper to be included on the ballot. This is contrary to the 10th Amendment, but that was one of the first parts off the Constitution to be cast aside.
Obama swore an oath to uphold the Constitution.
If he files with SCOTUS to reverse its interpretation of the “natural born citizen” clause and loses, then refuses to obey a ruling, technically that is grounds for impeachment.
0bama could simply produce all the documents that prove he is eligible for the position of President. Thus, he does not need SCOTUS to overturn the Constitution.
He’s already committed impeachable offenses, but with the congress we have, they won’t act. I’m not sure they’d act even in the scenario you cite. We might be able to get the House to enact articles of impeachment, but to remove him, we’d have to get through Harry Reid and a bunch of other traitors in the Senate. There would definitely be a crisis.
What is absolutely disgusting, is that we’re into the last year of Obama’s first term, and these cases have been non-stop from day one, yet the courts have not allowed an airing of the facts, history, or precedent regarding eligibility.
People all over this country are demanding it!
Until such time as the courts do, these cases will continue.
“Since this is happening in a redstate, it may go nowhere, but if they can get this going in someplace like Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, or Michigan, Obama will go to political DEFCON ONE.”
Well since Orly Taitz is the only attorney who will do it and she is just about out of cash, I don’t see anymore being filed by an attorney. And if you file pro se, it will go right in the garbage.
If people interested in this issue want this to work, they will have to make donations. So I guess that’s it.
Some more updated info on this, straight from a source in the interview:
What will Obama’s next move be?
In a round about way, the US supreme court has let it be known that its none of their business. Fine. It's our business.
By next weekend we should have a ruling. If he words the ruling in a fair way and DQ’s Obama, it will create a blueprint for the next state, next judge.
Can you Imagine running for president and telling people you refuse to release all birth documents? Brass Balls. This judge has probably seen dozens of A-holes like Obama before, and shoving it back up his pipe is routine.
A president fighting the states. Only Obama, the communist tyrant.
So the plaintiffs reject a default judgement? Wow - they are pretty confident that the judge will agree with them.
" Understand that the goal of the Georgia ballot challenge was to have a court rule on the merits of the Constitutional question: Does the term natural born citizen in Article II of the Constitution require a Presidential candidate to have two parents that were U.S. citizens at the time the candidate was born? Obama wants to avoid having a court rule on this question. That is why he didnt show up and ordered his attorneys to not show up.
Obama was hoping that the Georgia court would enter a default judgment rather than rule on the merits. If the court enters a default judgment, Obama will have succeeded in avoiding the Constitutional eligibility question. He will then appeal the default judgment, get the appellate court to suspend the default judgment pending appeal, and then delay the appeal until after the primary. This is undoubtedly Obamas plan."
Pennsylvania's legislature has Senate Bill 1282 on the agenda. Rather an PA be a winner-take-all state, in November the electors would be allocated according to which candidate got each congressional district, plus two electors going to which candidate got the most votes statewide. So Obama could win the popular vote in PA, mostly from Philly and Pittsburgh, and most of the electors could go to the Republican.
I don’t think it will be a default judgment — the judge has already indicated this based on the arguments of the legal teams that actually showed up.
It’s going to be an interesting next few days.
