    Springs man's claim to have Obama records starts buzz A Colorado Springs “birther,” retired Air Force Col. Gregory Hollister, has Internet blogs abuzz with what may be an illegal foray into an online Social Security data base and how he obtained a copy of President Barack Obama’s draft registration from 1980. “Col. Greg Hollister, USAF (Ret.) contacted the Selective Service, falsely impersonated President Obama, improperly registered his own address as President Obama’s address, and by this false impersonation and identity theft he managed to obtain a duplicate registration acknowledgement card with President Obama’s Selective Service information on it,” a blogger...

    "Stunner! Supremes to give eligibility case another lookChallenge to Obama getting 2nd conference before court In a stunning move, the U.S. Supreme Court has scheduled another "conference" on a legal challenge to Barack Obama's eligibility to occupy the Oval Office, but officials there are not answering questions about whether two justices given their jobs by Obama will participate. The court has confirmed that it has distributed a petition for rehearing in the case brought by attorney John Hemenway on behalf of retired Col. Gregory Hollister and it will be the subject of a conference on March 4. It was in...

    "New eligibility challenge reaches Supreme Court Attorney calls for recusal of Obama judicial appointees"There is a widespread perception among 'conservative' media figures such as Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin that judicial appointments have been made by the respondent Obama with the expectation of favors in return. This has combined with a campaign of ridicule and 'unthinkability' on these serious issues led by the press spokesman of the respondent Obama among others," said a "motion to recuse" submitted by attorneys working on behalf of Gregory S. Hollister, a retired military officer. The motion cites Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor, both of...

    On March 25th, Clinton-appointed Judge James Robertson (U.S. District Court), after having threatened to impose financial sanctions on John D. Hemenway for having enjoined the Berg lawsuit to force President Obama to release his birth records to prove his citizenship, backed down. Instead of financial penalties, the Judge issued a reprimand tinged with flippancy. Judge Robertson reconsidered his previous sanctions threat, possibly fearing monetary sanctions might spark a backlash and give a boost to the grassroots effort to force Mr. Obama to relinquish his records for public scrutiny. While the Judge gives passing tribute to Hemenway's long career of public...

    HOLLISTER, Calif. - The City Council has canceled an annual Independence Day motorcycle rally that attracted more than 100,000 bikers a year from around the country and inspired the 1950s Marlon Brando outlaw biker movie "The Wild One." The council voted 3-2 on Feb. 6 to scrap plans for this year's Hollister Independence Rally, arguing that the city cannot continue paying for police patrols at the event. The city paid $250,000 last year after the rally's nonprofit organizing group said it could not pay, city officials said. But Mayor Robert Scattini, who voted for keeping the rally, said the council...
