As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Obama to Ignore Order to Appear in Atlanta Court

President Obama will ignore an order by an Atlanta judge to appear in court Thursday for a hearing in a case challenging his qualifications under the Constitution to be president.

According to the White House, Obama will continue with his current trip out West, starting the day in Las Vegas and then continuing on to Buckley Air Force Base in Aurora, Colorado before heading to Detroit where he will spend the night.

The Associated Press reported last week that the judge had denied a motion to quash a subpoena for the president to show up for the hearing, which is scheduled for 9 am ET. Obama may still be sleeping – it will only be 6 am in Las Vegas.

The case centers on whether Obama, whose father was Kenyan, qualifies as a “natural born citizen,” as required of a president under the Constitution. Some contend that “natural born citizen” means both of a presidential candidate’s parents must be U.S. citizens.

The Atlanta lawsuit would deny Obama the right to participate in the March 6 Georgia Democratic primary, though backers of the suit clearly hope to establish a precedent that would help make a national issue over whether Obama can serve as president.

A letter apparently sent by Obama attorney Michael Jablonski Wednesday to Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp asks Kemp to “bring an end to this baseless, costly and unproductive hearing by withdrawing the original hearing request as improvidently issued.”

Jablonski states that while waiting for Kemp to do as requested, “we will, of course, suspend further participation in these proceedings, including the hearing scheduled for January 26.”

A letter that appears to be from Kemp to Jablonski rejects the demand and holds out the threat of punitive action should Obama and his attorneys withdraw from the proceedings.

“To the extent a request to withdraw the case referral is procedurally available, I do not believe such a request would be judicious given the hearing is set for tomorrow morning,” the Kemp letter states. “Anything you and your client place in the record in response to the challenge will be beneficial to my review of the initial decision; however, if you and your client choose to suspend your participation in the OSAH proceedings, please understand that you do so at your own peril.”

I possess copies of both the Jablonski and Kemp letters, and I have little doubt that both are genuine, but I have not as of late this evening been able to contact officials to absolutely confirm their authenticity.

UPDATE: Obama and his attorneys skipped the hearing. Also, the Jablonski and Kemp letters are genuine.

  1. My considered belief is that Stanley Ann Dunham’s illegitmate son was fathered by Frank Marshall Davis, who was a US citizen, not Barack Obama from Kenya.
    Davis was a communist black friend of our president’s white grandfather, (also a communist) who hung around the Dunham house when Stanley Ann was a teen-ager. I also believe the whole Barack Obama fairy tale was cooked up to A) Keep old man Dunham out of hot water for allowing his pal to knock up his teen-aged daughter. B) Keep Davis from being charged with statutory rape of a minor.
    Barry, as his mother called him, gives his name as Barack Hussein Obama “the 2nd”… not “Junior” like anyone else named after his dad.
    Evidence is, Barry applied and was accepted to American colleges as a foriegn student from Indonesia, where he was largely raised. If so, it’s just early fraud from the Affirmative Action failure screwing up our country.

  2. Folks, the time for this type of legal challenge was back in the Democratic primaries in 2008. Although I think he is the worst president since Jimmy Carter, he’s in office now. Let’s drop these legal challenges and get it done at the ballot box in November.

  3. how dumb is this? this whole issue could have been placed at rest years ago if a certified, acceptable birth certificate had been disclosed. one lousy piece of paper would make this whole thing go away. but, because the president doesnt intend to do so, you have to then wonder if there isnt some merit to all of this. its simply logical.

    • Obama doesn’t need no certified birth certificate.

      Obama has the Main Stream Media on his side. He can just hand draw a birth certificate on toilet paper and the rigorous fact checking by the media will prove the birth certificate is official.

  4. The President of the United States is supposed to be the protector of the law as written in the Constitution. This one has flaunted the Constitution and the law flagrantly and with contempt for the principles this nation was founded on. When he loses the election, all of the piccadillos his administration pulled behind the scenes will come out and we will see the first former president of the United States go to prison.

    • The sweet thing about that is since Obama has removed himself from the case he might not have to be notified.

      The first clue he would have is the ballots were printed without his name on it.

      Not that it would make any difference. Obama will be lucky to win New York and Florida, let alone Georgia.

  5. Another instance that shows how Obunghole puts himself above the law. If anyone else were to do such a thing, he would be arrested for contempt of court. He has no respect for any law but his own.

  6. This court case is designed to “prove” Obama is a citizen. It does so by diverting away from the real issue. It’s easy to prove there is no such requirement that both parents be US citizens, so Obama will eventually win this case.

    The real issue is proving whether he was born on US soil or not. If he was, case closed. If he was not born on US soil, the law is clear. At least one parent must be a US citizen AND have lived in the US for 5 consecutive years AFTER their 18th birthday, prior to his birth. We know his mother was only 18 and living in Kenya, so she does not qualify.

    As it stands now, Obama has released a birth certificate proving he was born in Hawaii. On the other side, several Adobe engineers, anaylsts and document experts have stated it is a tampered document.

    The solution is simple enough. We just need an unbiased court to look at all the original documentation and decide if it is real or not.

    • “It’s easy to prove there is no such requirement that both parents be US citizens, so Obama will eventually win this case.”

      It’s easy? See Minor v, Happersett and Schneider v. Rusk, which support the argument that Barry needs two U.S. citizen parents – as do Marco Rubio and Bobby Jindal.

  7. Barry Soetoro thinks he is above our laws. It is time to end this charade! He ignored the subpoena, his attorneys laughed at the court, and it is time for the judge to issue a bench warrant for Barry and drag his Kenyan behind iin to stand before the judge.
    Who in America really believes a DUAL citizen could ever be a Natural Born Citizen under our Constitution?

  8. From http://www.crossroad.to/Quotes/communism/alinsky.htm

    “Obama learned his lesson well. I am proud to see that my father’s model for organizing is being applied successfully beyond local community organizing to affect the Democratic campaign in 2008. It is a fine tribute to Saul Alinsky as we approach his 100th birthday.” –Letter from L. DAVID ALINSKY, son of Neo-Marxist Saul Alinsky

    Obama helped fund ‘Alinsky Academy’: “The Woods Fund, a nonprofit on which Obama served as paid director from 1999 to December 2002, provided startup funding and later capital to the Midwest Academy…. Obama sat on the Woods Fund board alongside William Ayers, founder of the Weather Underground domestic terrorist organization…. ‘Midwest describes itself as ‘one of the nation’s oldest and best-known schools for community organizations, citizen organizations and individuals committed to progressive social change.’… Midwest teaches Alinsky tactics of community organizing.”

    Hillary, Obama and the Cult of Alinsky: “True revolutionaries do not flaunt their radicalism, Alinsky taught. They cut their hair, put on suits and infiltrate the system from within. Alinsky viewed revolution as a slow, patient process. The trick was to penetrate existing institutions such as churches, unions and political parties…. Many leftists view Hillary as a sell-out because she claims to hold moderate views on some issues. However, Hillary is simply following Alinsky’s counsel to do and say whatever it takes to gain power.

    “Obama is also an Alinskyite…. Obama spent years teaching workshops on the Alinsky method. In 1985 he began a four-year stint as a community organizer in Chicago, working for an Alinskyite group called the Developing Communities Project…. Camouflage is key to Alinsky-style organizing. While trying to build coalitions of black churches in Chicago, Obama caught flak for not attending church himself. He became an instant churchgoer.” (By Richard Poe, 11-27-07)

  9. For all of you Koolaid drinkers trying to paint this as a ‘birther’ issue, here’s a clue. This has nothing to do with the validity of Obama’s BC. This is a question of the citizenship status of the his parents as specified on the BC supplied by Obama. Nice try though!

  10. Who is the greater traitor?
    Obama or those who protect him?

    I say its those who protect him.
    They have the opportunity to act every single day and yet they do nothing.

  11. If Obama is elected to another term, there is no hope for the United States. Obama et al., have done so much damage, that the country will default on it’s obligations. There is not enough money in the world to bail us out.

    Vote for anyone but Obama in 2012.

  12. Perhaps the judge will do what he would do to you or the mighty Boa and send the sheriffs to bring him in,,,,,,,,,,

    Yeah, sure. If he DOES, the mighty Boa will be writing him in for President……

  13. In reading the comments below it saddens me to no end that the people of the US cannot get passed the fact the we have an african american president. Furthermore, at what point are you going to realize how stupid you look to the rest of the world. Do none of you understand the meaning of ‘united we stand, divided we fall’? All the division displayed just lets the rest of the world know that we are a weak nation at heart and how to you conquer a weak nation, make the people fight amongst themselves. they’ll destroy each other.

    WAKE THE HELL UP AMERICANS!!!! We are all americans whether black or white! What other countries do you see airing their dirty laundry and ignorance more than the US! The the hell is wrong with you people!

    As for PORTIA, stop wasting you time arguing with fools!! You’re making yourself look just as foolish as them. You seem like an intelligent person! Say what you have to say and move on! Misery loves company and your playing into the misery that is surrounding the folks who have nothing intelligent or worthwhile to say! Bottom line is the energy they are putting into tearing down the President, they need to direct it towards something postive and become productive members of society!! Screw ’em! They’ll get what they have coming! Gene pool needs cleansing anyway!

    • I believe the point that most people are infuriated about is Obama’s blatant disregard of a court order, showing he views himself to be above the law. That is something no one, black OR white, should do, especially not one who has sworn an oath, to God and the People of this Great Nation, to uphold and defend…

      • I can understand and respect that. However, haven’t they gone down this road before? Isn’t it a waste of the tax payers money? Are there not bigger issues that need to be addressed as far as this country is concerned? And sadly, it all boils down to the color of his skin. Honestly, would this be going on if he were caucasian? That’s the part that frustrating. The injustices that continue in this country. When are people going get over the past atrocities of this country? Injustices were done to blacks and whites! At what point are the people of american going to realize we need to pull together to become a stronger, greater nation!

        • OH I AM SO SICK OF THIS ACCUSATION!!!! Racism has nothing to do with his eligibility and he brought this on himself with spending such ridiculous amounts of money, time and effort to hide his identity. But all you see is race – YOU are racist. That is all YOU see.

    • If anyone is a fool it’s you, let me repeat again, if you don’t and can’t understand, Odinga is not a citizen of the U.S. . he stated it in his own book, his father was a British royal subject and that makes him illegal to sit as the president. it’s you who is ignorant and are using racial garbage to muddy the waters. Well, that dung don’t work any longer, you people have out used racial torture to many times and it has no meaning anymore, your washed up in that field. all you have left to listen to your bull shit is the liberal left wing commie bastards.

  14. I’m confused as to why Obama is being supenaed. The events at his birth happened when he was too young to form adequate memories. His testimony would not be useful to either side.

    • it’s very simple you simple minded fool, to prove for once and for all his origin of birth. one can only prove that if he shows his long form birth certificate with the raised seal and that would have ended the entire case. he can’t show it, because he does not have it, you idiot.

  15. Is it any wonder that Caesar — I mean Emperor Obama — would defy the rule of law? He doesn’t believe in it, after all! He considers himself to be ABOVE the law!

    • since he never sowed up mat the hearing, he should immediately brought before the congress of jackals and impeached and removed form office by force. her is sitting in the oval office , illegally, and dung face knows it.

  16. Would this be an issue if his father were a white non american (european, austrailian, etc) and his mother were black? hmmmm!!! makes you wonder!!

  17. He knows he won’t win GA anyway…if this happened in one of the battleground states (CO, FL, NV, NH, NM, OH, VA, WI) he would unleash all of his minion bullies

  18. He knows he won’t win GA anyway…if this happened in one of the battleground states (CO, FL, NV, NH, NM, OH, VA, WI) he would unleash all of his minion bullies.

    • in this case it’s a little different, his name would be removed from the ballot all together, a default is tantamount to pleading guilty. and lets face it, dung face liar is guilty.

  19. Thats typical Obama tactics, this guy is not only a joke, he is dangerous…get out and vote in 2012 and vote this clown out of office….this country is going nowhere with Barry Obama in the White House!!! Obama had no qualifications to be President we all know why he was elected President…now its time to get back to seroius business and get someone in that position who can turn this country around…Obama had his change, he is a complete failure.

  20. I am not sure about lawas in Georgia like other states, but if he refuses to attend when ordered, I would think the judge has legal standing to summarily rule in favor of the plantiff in the case.

  21. I THOUGHT Obama was a smart lawyer and believes in upholding the law, yet it appears that he chooses to BLATANTLY ignore a JUDGES’ ORDER to appear, making me wonder just WHY he thinks he’s above the law. He confounds us ALL with his shenanigans! I have looked at Obama’s “official” Certificate of Live Birth from Hawaii, and in the capital “A” of the Hawaii State Registrar, Alvin T. Onaka, there is a “smiley face, no doubt put there by Onaka himself, yet not ONE reporter has ever asked Onaka about that smiley face, so my question is, “Why not?”

  22. If this were a fundraiser for $37,500 per person Obama would be sure to be in Atlanta but since it is just a legal matter and he is above the law he won’t show. I hope he is served a WARRANT and found guilty.

  23. Does Obama think he is above the law? The birth certificate has been proven to be a fraud and photo shopped. Why does he have so many SS numbers, and none of them from any state he has lived in? Too many questions, and I applaud the State of Georgia in seeking the truth. This man is a delusional, inept fraud!

  24. Can anyone answer this……..Would the Presidents citizenship be an issue if his father were a “NON AMERICAN” WHITE MAN and his mother a BLACK WOMAN? hhhmmmmm! makes you wonder!!

    • you missed the point! re-read the question! matter of fact….don’t bother. you comment below just lets me know your mentality, regardless of your skin color, which, is blatantly obvious! no need to communicate with closed minded ignorant people who are incapable of thinking outside of the box! racism = ignorance! no matter what your skin color is! ugh! people like you make the world a miserable place live!

      • How about Eric Holder refusing to prosecute when the victim is white? How about the wise latina who believes simply being latina makes her superior? How about telling the Black Panthers “now don’t you bring those machine guns to the polling places until 2012 you guys”?

    • not it would not, it’s still the same issue,according to the constitution two parents must be natural born and that’s it. read the law yourself, because you sound ignorant on this subject which most of you people are anyway. Stop muddying the waters with your racial bull shit.

  25. why would the obamanation listen to any court the list of US laws he has broken and flaunted is longer than the list of 40000 new laws he has shoved up the american buiness,s arse. if i owned a buisness i would not invest 1 dime as long as this sociolist trash is in office and if you check you will find that the day after he was elected there was more money moved off shore than any other day in history. the job creaters know that if they invest while he is in office they may as well burn there buisness and collect welfare and food stamps. there will be no recovery with him in office. he said he would bring both sides together and has devided america like never before. he has wasted more money than 9/11 and 2 10 year wars combined. And if he is re-elected i am going to canada for at least 6 to 10 years, it will take that long to fix all he has broken. carter was seen as the worst prez ever and bush was second but they have both been demoted. Obama is 300 times worse than carter and a 1000 times worse than bush

  26. As an Attorney, it comes as quite a shock someone who has had the same legal training and knowledge, including someone who has “taught” a class in Constitutional Law IN A LAW SCHOOL would so blindly ignore that which he has sworn to uphold and defend. As for not appearing in court, Mr. Obama is (once was) an attorney as well and he knows the full ramifications which would be levied against any other citizen who failed to appear by court order. Just because he is the President does not mean he can blatantly choose to ignore the law, and pick and choose from the Constitution when it suits him. He has made a mockery of the office, one where it seems he shouldn’t have been able to qualify for in the 1st place. If he is a natural born citizen, here’s an idea that would have been useful from day 1: just release the long form certificate, and put this to rest; why then, do you think he has not done so after nearly 4 years? Either he is CANNOT produce the original, or he simply like the attention; either way, it is a far cry from the upstanding behavior which should be exhibited by any President in this great nation; especially when it comes down to a regular habit of picking and choosing when to obey the laws and when he feels he is above them and they do not apply.

  27. Presidents as congress men have an immunity other wise we’d never get anything done with everyone challenging everyone else in court, this is totally ridiculous. All these issues have been settled in the Supreme court long ago. It’s time for the people not the Judges to make the choice.

    • They have immunity only when acting in the official scope of their office; therefore by disregarding a court order pertaining to him as an individual, not as The President, he would be unable under the Constitutional to claim Official Immunity, but then again, its not like he follows the laws in the Constitution in the 1st place… (I might add the same was claimed with Richard Nixon and the Supreme Court found that immunity only takes hold for official actions of office, not personal ones)

  28. The course of action is clear, issue a bench warrant for Mr. Obamas arrest, the same as would be done for you or I. This man should not be above the law, regardless how he himself feels and acts.
    “Book him Danno”

  29. You cant impeach him as long as there are dems in congress. he could commit mass murder on americans and they would make excuses for him and look the other way.

  30. Obama is legally a citizen of U.S. His parents were married in Hawaii in Feb. of 1961 and he was born in Aug. of 1961. The natural born citizen clause was done away with by the founding fathers.

  31. That’s part of his record; ignoring Judges orders. The last Judge that rendered Obamacare illegal and put a cease and desist order on it was ignored too.
    Obama feels he’s above everything and everyone. He’s an arrogant, narcissistic jerk!!

  32. Racism is always the charge by the Media when anyone expresses a political opinion that differs from the political opinion of a liberal.

    Racism charges are a side effect of the tolerance the Media has for moral failures by Liberals with political opinions exactly the same as theirs.

    • you are right, but try not to listen to them any more, because there charges of racism don’t work any more , at least with me they don’t. don’t let these fools in media stigmatize you for your beliefs.

  33. issue a warrent on obama and server it. if he doesn’t reply or comply then send in Dog the Bounty Hunter to collect him. Or if Airforce One lands in Atlanta, hold the plane on the tarmack and serve it on him there onboard the plane and then gice State Police the authority to arrest hi and book him.
