Obama Ordered To Appear Before Atlanta Judge

by Keith Koffler on January 21, 2012, 11:39 am

President Obama has been ordered to appear before a judge in Atlanta in a case challenging whether he is qualified to be president of the United States, according to the Associated Press.

The judge set the hearing for this Thursday after denying on Friday a motion by Obama’s lawyer to quash a subpoena that requires Obama to personally show up.

Obama, however, will be nowhere near Atlanta on Thursday. According to the White House, he will be out West promoting the agenda he plans to lay out in Tuesday’s State of the Union address. Obama Thursday plans to make appearances in Las Vegas and Denver areas before traveling on to Detroit to spend the night.

Litigants in the case say he is not eligible to run in Georgia’s March Democratic primary because they claim he is not a “natural born citizen” as required by the Constitution, since his father was not a citizen. But they clearly hope a ruling against Obama will make the issue a national cause and raise questions about his eligibility to run in the general election.

YOU can Continue for as long as you live,To Convince Me President Barack H Obama IS LEGALLY Qualified to be PRESIDENT of The United States of America, But The Case Being Heard on Thursday,Is A Discovery Case,NOT A CRIMINAL TRIAL,So Far Your Comments are meaningless….
Your Comments Are Politically Motivated For The Administration…..
But The Fact Remains,Obama Fails To Qualify,Under the CONSTITUTION of the UNITED STATES of AMERICA,Because His Father was a citizen of Kenya,And Under Great Britton Rule,So Obama Has Evidently Triple Citizenship,Kenya(BRITISH) and Indonesia,Under yet another Name,BARRY TOESORO,SO He HAS Devided Alegiance,in many ways………

Remember.The Federal Marshals work for the AG (Erick Holder). You seriously think Obummer doesn’t have the cards stacked against any attempt by the States to maintain the rule of law when it pertains to him or his friends? He had overstepped the United States Constitution and The Bill Of Rights without concern to the fact – many people sacrificed, even to their death to protect our freedom and independence from the oppressive actions of this administration and others. Keep this in mind while at the voting poles.

I need to clarify here for answer 2 and 3. Pleae forgive me, I was tired and typing this on my smart phone. Not a good combination apparently. :)

It would be a logistical nightmare for Obama to show up. The cost would be detrimental to the US government and the state of Georgia. The manpower for the Secret Service, background checks for every person working at that court house, having to clear the docket for that day, having a 2 block minimum radius cut off for security, having to hire the local police and state feds for added security detail, the bomb checks… This is not yet including the background checks for all those working in the area. Plus all the techs needed to monitor the area at ground zero and back home and where the President will stay during the court battle. Same procedure for the hotel as well.

Once Obama wins, he had every right to sue all those involved. Don’t be surprised if the government sues these morons to cover court fees, cost for the President to be there which would add up to millions of dollars.

The judge would never be anything but a local judge for going through with this. He would be blackballed. Same for the prosecuting attorney(ies).

The President’s life is to be protected above all else even if there is collateral damage with civillians to protect the President.

The President makes only around $250,000 per year. He works 24/7/365. Actors make more than the President. He gets, no matter who is President – male or female, death threats on a daily basis. He does not get to leave his job behind at the end of the day like you and me. So if the Secret Service has to be his shadow, so be it.

Illinois? Lisa Madigan? Please. Illinois is the last state that will investigate Obama’s eligibility. I lived there. Obama ran for the state senate and a county judge threw off his competition. Then when he ran for the senate, the media spread a story of his democratic competitor had beaten his wife. After the primary, oops, we were wrong, he didn’t beat his wife. Then they pulled the same trick on the republican. Obama got a sweetheart land deal to buy his home, his wife got a 250k job at UofC that didn’t exist before and didn’t exist after she left, the WH was talking to Blago daily about the senate seat and then on one day no one would take a call from Blago anymore meaning the DoJ tipped off the WH of the tapping.

I’d fall off my chair in shock to find out Illinois was investigating their favorite son. The state and the president are as corrupt as a 3 dollar bill.

In “theory” the judge could hold Obama in contempt and order a body attachment for him. In federal court the US Marshal’s Service would be the ones to execute the arrest. Since this is a state court, it would be up to the state law enforcement agencies to make the arrest. However, if the “warrant” would be entered into NCIC (National Crime Information Center), and the warrant stated the the state of Georgia was willing to extradite from any other state, then any law enforcement officer nationally could make the arrest. He would then be held until Georgia sent officers to pick him up and bring him back to the judge that issued the warrant. Realistically, the Secret Service, having care and control of him could be obligated to arrest him.

Imagine if he is in Arizona and Sheriff Joe Arpaio was the one that picked Obama up.

If Obama does not show up, my question is would that be sufficient for the House to move on impeachment? He would have blatantly disregarded a court order to appear, and would be in such a position as to not be able to execute his duties as POTUS due to the possibility of arrest by law enforcement.

Shofar January 22, 2012 at 6:39 am

If you are using Sec. 112 of the act, “(c) DELEGATION OF DUTIES.—The President may not delegate or assign the duties of the President under this section” as an argument as to why POTUS is not able to be held accountable to the varied states and their laws, I would have to say that you are mistaken.

“SEC. 112. (50 U.S.C. 404) (a) PROVISION OF INTELLIGENCE
INFORMATION TO THE UNITED NATIONS” simply states that for this section POTUS may not delegate or assign duties, not that other duties cannot be assigned per POTUS discretion. The act was not established to act as a shield for the President, but rather to define and codify the varied intelligence and military organizations within the US and to provide direction to the President with regard to Congressional oversight and reporting.

Further, the Twenty-fifth Amendment, Section 4 states clearly, “Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.” If in fact Obama is held in contempt of the Georgia court, and due to orders set forth by that court, then the VP and Cabinet OR “such other body as Congress may by law provide” the President can be side stepped as POTUS until such time as he/she is able to resume the office.

Given the enormity of the situation facing Obama, if Georgia falls, how many other states will be emboldened to take similar action and scrutinize his CV and citizenship status. Due to the Constitutional implications, the case in Georgia is destined to be fast tracked to SCOTUS. If, in fact the Justices finally decide to review the matter, the question is will those appointed by Obama be forced to recuse themselves from any decision? On its face any Obama appointee would have a conflict of interest, given that they may be removed from their post if in fact it is determined that he did not meet the Constitutional requirements for office.

I would be more inclined to see DOJ or Obama’s WH council or personal attorney attempt to quash any subpoenas or warrants under the argument that the states do not have jurisdiction with regard to federal elections. That argument is fallacious, in as much as it is the SOS’s responsibility to certify that any candidate meets the minimum requirements for office. The case law is clear, in 1968 the CA SOS removed Eldridge Cleaver from the ballot because he was only 33 at the time, and the Constitution clearly states that a candidate for POTUS must be 35. The removal was upheld.

This entire Constitutional nightmare can be avoided by Obama showing up, and answering questions for the Georgia court. However, it will also open up the possibility of a perjury charge if Obama lies to the court. The states still have the right to act against a sitting President, as was the case with Clinton when he was stripped of his law license while POTUS for lying during the Lewinsky affair. Don’t underestimate what states can do, the Tenth Amendment is still in effect the last time I checked.

Mitt Romney’s father was born in Mexico to American citizens.

Via Wikipedia -
George Wilcken Romney (July 8, 1907 – July 26, 1995) – Romney was born to American parents in the Mormon colonies in Mexico; events during the Mexican Revolution forced his family to flee back to the United States when he was a child. The family lived in several states and ended up in Salt Lake City, Utah, where they struggled during the Great Depression. Romney worked in a number of jobs, served as a Mormon missionary in England and Scotland, and attended two universities in the U.S. but did not graduate from either. In 1939 he moved to Detroit and joined the American Automobile Manufacturers Association, where he served as the chief spokesperson for the automobile industry during World War II and headed a cooperative arrangement in which companies could share production improvements. He joined Nash-Kelvinator in 1948, and became chairman and CEO of its successor, American Motors Corporation in 1954. There he turned around the struggling firm by focusing all efforts on the smaller Rambler car. Romney mocked the products of the “Big Three” automakers as “gas-guzzling dinosaurs” and became one of the first high-profile, media-savvy business executives. Devoutly religious, Romney presided over the Detroit Stake of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Thank you for mentioning the real issue: that the citizenship of one’s parents is a factor in determining whether one is a “natural born citizen.” One born on U.S. soil is only a “native born” citizen. Te be a “natural born” citizen requires birth on U.S. soil AND two U.S. citizen parents at the moment of birth. Obama is therefore not a natural born citizen. Nor is Marco Rubio. Nor is Bobby Jindal. (If Rubio is chosen as the GOP vice-presidential candidate, lawsuits will fly – for the same reason many have challenged Obama’s status since day one.)

In 1862, Congressman John Bingham—the “father of the 14th Amendment”—stated, “All from other lands, who by the terms of [congressional] laws and a compliance with their provisions become naturalized, are adopted citizens of the United States; all other persons born within the Republic, of parents owing allegiance to no other sovereignty, are natural born citizens. Gentleman can find no exception to this statement touching natural-born citizens except what is said in the Constitution relating to Indians.”

In 1866 Bingham stated, “Every human being born within the jurisdiction of the United States of parents not owing allegiance to any foreign sovereignty is, in the language of your Constitution itself, a natural born citizen.” Bingham’s definition was never disputed by other Congressmen. (Unscrupulous Obots—including attorneys filing briefs with the U.S. Supreme Court—have omitted the words “of parents” when quoting Bingham’s statement, in a shameful and intentional effort to mislead.)

In Minor v. Happersett (1875) Chief Justice of the Supreme Court Morrison Remick Waite wrote, “The Constitution does not, in words, say who shall be natural-born citizens. Resort must be had elsewhere to ascertain that. At common-law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were natives, or natural-born citizens, as distinguished from aliens or foreigners. Some authorities go further and include as citizens children born within the jurisdiction without reference to the citizenship of their parents. As to this class there have been doubts, but never as to the first.”

Further, Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution includes a “grandfather clause” that exempts the nation’s earliest presidents from having to be natural born citizens because, of course, neither George Washington nor anyone else had U.S. citizen parents at the time of their births. But those who claim that “natural born citizen” means nothing more than born on U.S. soil must then explain why there is a grandfather clause. That is, the grandfather clause serves no purpose if the president need only be born on U.S. soil. But the Founding Fathers did not require that presidents be “native born;” they required that they be “natural born.”

Chester A. Arthur was the nation’s first illegal president. His father did not become a U.S. citizen until after Chester’s birth. Chester Arthur went to great lengths to hide his father’s status, and even burned documents. Why would he have done so if he did not know that natural born citizen was affected by his father’s citizenship status?

In 1968 some questioned whether George Romney was a natural born citizen. He was born in Mexico to parents who were Mormon missionaries. They owned property in Mexico and thus no doubt became Mexican citizens. When George was born, he was automatically a Mexican citizen, and was therefore not a natural born citizen of the United States. But the issue went away because George Romney lost to Richard Nixon in the primaries.

Obama wanted John McCain in 2008 and Mitt Romney in 2012 to be his opponents because their natural born citizenship status is questionable. That works in Obama’s favor, of course, because one cannot challenge him without challenging the other.

From Timeline’s post: They owned property in Mexico and thus no doubt became Mexican citizens.

Again via Wikipedia -
Eligibility

While Romney was born in Mexico, he was still considered a viable and legal candidate for United States president. His Mormon grandfather and his three wives had fled to Mexico in 1886, but none of them ever relinquished U.S. citizenship. While the Constitution requires that a president must be a natural-born citizen, the first Congress of the United States in 1790 passed legislation stating: “The children of citizens of the United States that may be born beyond the sea, or outside the limits of the United States, shall be considered as natural-born citizens of the United States.” Romney and his family fled Mexico in 1912 prior to the Mexican Revolution. However, the Naturalization Act of 1795 repealed the Act of 1790[citation needed] and removed the language explicitly stating that the children of U.S. citizens are natural-born citizens. As such, it is not clear that Romney was actually eligible for the office of president.[

Oh there most certainly is language in the Constitution that demands exactly this… it states that to be POTUS, one must not only be a native born citizen (born on US soil), but also a natural born citizen (BOTH parents must be US citizens). The reason for this is simple: The founding fathers wanted to make sure our POTUS had allegiance only to America. Right there in writing, very simply and straight-forwardly written. Look it up, dear.

You do realize that the grandfather clause had to do with the fact that our 1st president could not be a natural born citizen of the United States of America because there was no country called the United States of America until after the Revolutionary War. It was going to take a generation or two until presidential candidates were naturally born on the soil of the USA because the 1st presidents were born as colonists and thereby citizens of other countries, generally Great Britain. As long as a person was born on US soil, regardless of whether or not their parents are/were US citizens, has reached the age of 35, and has lived in the US for 14 years, they are eligible to be POTUS. Barak Obama meets the criteria. This judge should be disbarred or at the very least sent back to law school. It’s a contentious suit, a waste of time, and a waste of tax payer funds.

The Obama Timeline author January 21, 2012 at 6:08 pm

It is not a trial; it is a hearing. Of course Obama will not appear. If the judge ultimately rules against Obama, I believe that means only that the issue goes to the Georgia Secretary of State for a determination. (Although I may be wrong.)

Obama lost Georgia in 2008 and will lose it again in 2012. If he is kept off the Georgia ballot, he will use it to his advantage: charging that GOP and southern racism is behind the effort. The media will of course side with him against “backward, knuckle-dragging, southern racists who want to return to the days of slavery.”

On the other hand, key Democrats and power-brokers may have decided that it is now time to oust Obama – before he loses the White House and the Senate for them. That is, behind the scenes they are greasing the skids to get rid of Barry… so they can bring in Hillary Clinton to save the Party, the White House, and the Senate.

Stranger things have happened…

I’m calling BS on your theory of why Obama’s message of “change” is being rejected. His loss in Georgia has nothing to do with the color of his skin — more like the content of his character. Most well-informed people can recognize a Marxist when they see one.

Obama and Holder are suing the state of Georgia over immigration laws the state legislature passed. That action will come back to bite them now that the states are starting to fight back. Good luck Georgia.

Is there a plaintiff? Is there a defendant? I would assume that there is. If so, it is a lawsuit.

“…and then sue the person who filed this lawsuit just because they STILL can’t having a black man as President!” (sic)

What would the charge be? Nothing illegal about what you describe.

why is it that when a democrat makes false charges and allegations over a wild range of unrelated topics, it is quickly declared GOSPEL by the Democratic Propaganda Machine, yet, when a conservative selects a multitudes of points, each inter-twinded and inter-related, showing a realistic and highly probable course of actions and re-actions clearly described with the precision of a military Battle Plan, in sequence and correlations clearly indicated. . .suddenly begin to cry “Your Rant. . blah, blah, blah”? are Democrats seriously believeing that conservatives are so stupid as to be distracted by pompous and aggorant “Proclamations and fluff”? or do they seriously believe that only their over-liberally indoctrinated mind is capable of grasping the full force of their insidious plans to enslave and destroy the working class of these United States of America? or is it just the Democrat’s 200 year ingrained way of saying”Boy! it I wanted you to have a thought, I’d beat it into you!”?

further reading of KENYA”S newspaper indicates Barak Husein Obama ILLEGALLY interfering in the KENYAN Electorial Process by supporting a MUSLIM JIHADIST RADICAL who was pressing to become elected, and INSTALL SHARIA LAW, legally outlawing Christianity in KENYA. this interference was in opposition to the Constitutionally elected President of Kenya who was supported/befriended by the U.S. Government.
when the Muslim lost his bid for election, a muslim reign of terror, robberies, rapes, and murders rolled thru KENYA. . .Murdering tens of thousands of KENYAN CITIZENS. the worst was the ANTI-CHRISTIAN VIOLENCE just a few miles from Obama’s grandma’s. . .500 Christians locked into their church by the muslims and the church was put to the torch, burned to the ground KILLING MEN, WOMEN, CHILDREN, AND INFANTS INSIDE.
WHILE BEING A NATURAL BORN CITIZEN IS NOT REQUIRED FOR THE CONGRESS OR SENATE, IT IS REQUIRED TO BE NATURAL BORN CITIZEN NATURAL BORN CITIZEN DEFINED AS A CHILD OF AMERICAN CITIZENS WHETHER NATURALIZED OR BORN WITHIN THE CONFINES OF THE BORDERS OF THE UNITED STATES.
this is why we must push to impeach this ISLAMIC FUNDAMENTALIS JIHADIST
