    Baier: And now some fresh pickings from the political grapevine. A state judge in Georgia has denied a motion by the Obama Administration to dismiss a complaint challenging the president's eligibility to be on the ballot there. Attorney Orly Taitz filed the complaint back in November on behalf of a Georgia resident contending Obama is not a natural born citizen and therefore should not be on the March presidential primary in Georgia. You'll remember last year the White House released the president's long form birth certificate, however Taitz, along with many others in the so-called "birther" movement, is still not...

    The liberty Legal Foundation has announced that the case pending in Georgia, challenging Obama’s eligibility, has been ACCEPTED. This is great news considering Obama and his team of attorneys had been actively trying to have this case DENIED!! The Georgia court in agreeing to hear the case could well be setting the stage for other states in which quite similar cases are pending. Arizona and Tennessee both have such cases waiting right now. This case, in Georgia, deals specifically with the Natural Born Citizen issue. In a previous article, we brought up the Minor vs Happersett case from 1875 in...

    Georgia pistol-packing permits aren’t published on paper any more. In recent weeks, local probate court offices have been processing Georgia weapons carry licenses on a new system, which will produce cards that look something like a driver’s license with a photo, holographic seals and other security features. The old paper licenses are much more basic. Jerry Henry, executive director of GeorgiaCarry.Org, said the new licenses at least look better. “The remark I hear most often is the existing ones could be made by a fourth-grader and a crayon,” said Henry, who lives outside Fairburn. He said he objects to the...

    A Wendy’s manager turned his gun on robbers early Thursday morning and shot a man dead, Savannah-Chatham police say. Robert Cody Dasher, 22, was held up at 12:55 a.m. at the Wilmington Island Wendy’s, located on U.S. 80 near Johnny Mercer Boulevard. Dasher was closing the restaurant when the robbery happened, according to a police report. His employee left the door open after taking out the trash. Two men, their faces covered and wearing black, accosted Dasher inside the restaurant, putting a gun to his head, forcing him into an office and robbing him. The robbers made off with an...

    Yet for folks like Bill Evelyn, a founder of the State of Georgia Tea Party, the revolution has only begun. Having learned lessons from the past two years – including the necessity of vetting big-office candidates and trying to channel endorsements to avoid splitting tickets – the loosely organized tea party movement has thrown its anchor in the muddy trenches of local politics, reviving the GOP's moribund precinct nomination system, grooming candidates from the ground up, and setting into motion an audacious ground game patterned in part on the Democrat playbook of door-to-door canvasing and kitchen-table convincing.

    Five Georgia men have challenged President Barack Obama’s inclusion on next year’s presidential ballot, with at least some citing an oft-discredited theory that Obama is not eligible for office because the Constitution says that a president must be a “natural born citizen.” All the challenges have been made through the Georgia Office of the Secretary of State, which referred them to the state administrative hearings office. Hearings have not yet been set.

    A scare at the busiest airport in the world, as a gun goes off at a security checkpoint at Hartsfield-Jackson airport in Atlanta. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that TSA agents spotted a .22-caliber Magnum in a bag that was going through the x-ray machine on Sunday. It turns out the gun was loaded with small game pellet ammunition known as "snake" bullets. An Atlanta police officer who responded to the scene was trying to unload the gun when it went off. No one was injured, but the officer wrote in his report: “I was grazed by a pellet fragment on...

    Licensing should not be part of exercising the right to keep and bear arms, the grassroots group Georgia Gun Owners asserts in a press release issued today. Announcing the pre-filing of the Georgia “Constitutional Carry” Act of 2012 (HB679) by State Representative Jason Spencer, the bill promises to eliminate the requirement to have a Georgia Weapons Carry License to carry firearms openly or concealed, as is currently established lawful practice in Vermont, Alaska, Arizona and Wyoming. Per Georgia Gun Owners, the legislation will: * Eliminate the mandatory intrusive government requirement for background checks of law-abiding Georgia gun owners; * Eliminate...

    Only a week after there was a formal hearing in the state of New Hampshire on a request to remove Barack Obama's name from the 2012 presidential primary election ballot over allegations of fraud, state officials in Georgia are facing a related request. Activist Carl Swensson, who runs the RiseUpForAmerica.com website, and has been integral in campaigns to have Obama investigated, told WND that not only has he petitioned the state secretary of state, but some half a dozen others have done the same thing. In his complaint letter to Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp, Swensson wrote that while...

    ATLANTA, Nov. 14 (UPI) -- Prosecutors dropped felony charges against an Atlanta veteran who fired four shots into the ground outside his home to scare off a man he suspected was a thief.

    WASHINGTON -- A group of Mexican senators announced Tuesday they are preparing to meet with state legislators in Georgia and four other states next month, hoping to head off more stringent immigration laws like the one Georgia enacted this year.The senators plan to share information with state lawmakers that shows illegal immigrants generally stay out of trouble and contribute to the economy while they are here. Sen. Carlos Jimenez Macias, a member of the Mexican Senate’s Foreign Relations Committee, confirmed those plans Tuesday at a workshop on immigration reform in D.C. at the German Marshall Fund, a nonpartisan public policy...

    MARIETTA, Ga. — Families of three teens killed by a drunk driving illegal immigrant are mounting a campaign to keep him from being paroled and deported. The families believe if Sergio Montelongo-Sanchez is deported back to Mexico he will come back to the U.S. and cause the same type of crash that killed their loved ones on Sandtown Road near Booth 11 years ago. They're also not happy he could be released after serving less than a third of his sentence. "He served just a little over 10 years. That's not very long for killing three beautiful young people," Delores...

    The event was billed as a candidate forum, but it quickly shaped up as a battle among the participants to stand out in a crowded field for a single vacant state Senate seat. Seven of nine District 28 candidates participated in the Thursday night forum at Whitesburg Elementary School, sponsored by the Carrollton-Carroll County League of Women Voters. About 50 people were in the audience. The Senate district represents a portion of Carroll County. The other two candidates, unable to attend, sent representatives to deliver prepared opening statements, the only recourse allowed them under forum rules. All candidates want to...

    I support the Second Amendment. That might seem like a strange subject for your consumer investigator, so allow me to explain. I’ve wrestled with how much say the government should have in our right to bear arms my entire adult life. I’ve reported many cases of innocent children accidentally shot and killed through the negligence of adults who didn’t secure their firearms. Those are gut-wrenching experiences. I was sharing one such case with a friend when he expressed his reasons for supporting the right of private citizens to bear arms. He said, “the fear of an uprising from armed citizens...
