Obama Ordered To Georgia Court In Birther Hearing

Just when you thought the birther movement was dead, it raises it’s head once again. A Georgia judge has ordered President Obama to appear at a hearing in Atlanta on Thursday in which a citizen has filed a complaint saying that he is not a naturally born U.S. citizen. Although the President’s lawyer tried to kill a subpoena which requires him to appear in court, Deputy Chief Judge Michael Malihi denied the motion that would have done so.

According to a report by a CBS Atlanta affiliate, the complaint that Obama is not a naturally born U.S. citizen has been brought by a Georgia resident with the intention of keeping Barack Obama off the state’s ballot for President during the primaries in March.

Just a wild guess, but I doubt the President of the United States will show up in Atlanta for a birther hearing unless he happens to have a campaign fundraiser scheduled somewhere in the area on Thursday.

    Interesting.  Judge must be a birther as well.

      Or maybe he’s bought into that idea that the 14th Amendment preemptively naturalized people not yet born.

      • borderraven

        The 14th Amendment did not exist in 1787 and it did not amend Article 2 Section 1 of the US Constitution.
        The 14th Amendment only defines a “First Generation Citizen”.
        Barack Obama is a “First Generation Citizen”.
        A Natural Born Citizen is a “Second Generation Citizen”
        Obama fails POTUS eligibility by one generation.
        He got into the 2008 election by fraud or error.
        He got through the election by mistake.
        Our Founding Fathers never intended the Executive Branch be open to persons born to a non-immigrant alien.
        Stop the denial.
        Accept the truth.
        Repair the damage.
        Don’t do it again.

          So, Borderraving, where does the gold fringe of the Admiralty flag come in? And the covert op to plant demolition explosives in a pair of skyscrapers filled with 50,000 people every day?

          I just want to make sure I have it all clear.

          Where in the Constitution does it specify that “natural born” means “2nd generation”? Which penumbra emanates that?

        • http://www.wizbangblog.com David Robertson

          Apparently borderraven is borderline.  President Obama was born in the state of Hawaii. In the SCOTUS case of United States v. Wong Kim Ark, the Court ruled that a person born inside the USA is automatically a natural-born citizen.

          • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_IAAKTRWEGKL5D7NTI4FJFN63NQ Jim

            “Natural born citizen” is not mentioned in Wong Kim Ark, which is all about “citizenship,” not naturalborn citizenship.”

          • repwin2012

            The child is only considered a natural-born citizen once his father becomes a naturalized citizen. If he does not, then the child is considered a citizen of his father’s country of natural birth.
            The problem for Obama is that his father was never a U.S. citizen. It’s simple, really. It has everything to do with his father.
            Obama can hold many offices, but the founders were rightly concerned about a non-citizen having a child in the U.S., then taking them to their home country to raise them.
            Should the child return and become president, he would possibly bring foreign influences to the highest office in the land.
            Mr. Obama certainly has some strange and foreign concepts which we could fairly say are un-American. His disregard for the constitution is one that readily comes to mind. He has run roughshod over it.
            The fact that congress doesn’t always do what he wants, does not give him carte blanche to ignore it.
            If he doesn’t like the rules, it’s time to get out of the game.
            He’d be a great solitaire player.

  • jim_m

    The judge was appointed in 1995 which means he was appointed by a dem.

    Heh!

    • JWH

      Are you sure?  Michael Malihi is a state-level judge.  Who was in charge in Georgia at the time?

      • y_p_w

        I think Zell Miller was the Guv.  Although he’s a Dem, he hasn’t been that friendly with the Democratic Party as of late.

        However, I’ve been hearing that only the chief administrative judge is appointed by the Guv, and all other administrative judges are picked by the chief judge.

        • jim_m

          Zell Miller was the Gov.  And yes he has not been friendly with the dems of late, but this was in 1995 when he was still playing ball with them.

          But having never lived in Georgia I am unclear as to the exact mechanism of appointment in that state.  I believe the judge in question is from Fulton Co, which includes Atlanta, so it is likely that he was appointed by a dem.

          • y_p_w

            I believe it’s a special state court. Technically it’s the Georgia Office of State Administrative Hearings.  My reading of the rules of the office are that the chief judge appoints the other judges.

            http://www.osah.ga.gov/documents/procedures/administrative-rules-osah.pdf

            “616-1-2-.01 Definitions. Amended.
            As used in this Chapter, the term:
            (a) “Administrative Law Judge” means an administrative law judge or other person appointed by the Chief State Administrative Law Judge, and includes any other person appointed to preside over a hearing.”

            If it were a regular superior court, wouldn’t the governor usually made appointments?  That’s the way most states operate.

    Nice to see the Georgia racists have their day in court.

    Too bad the President won’t be there.

    • jim_m

      Agreed.  (oddly enough)

      I don’t see why a President should have to heed the summons of an administrative judge and I think it would be foolish to think that he should.  However, he will have to send a proxy.

      Unfortunately, this is nothing more than a pointless sideshow and it makes obama look sympathetic.

            A racist system run by Democrats? That explains what Bob Beckel meant when he said that he once contributed to the campaign of a Republican political candidate because the Republican was running against a racist incumbent Democrat. Beckel, by the way, is a liberal Democrat.

      • jim_m

        Cut him some slack.  He only said “Georgia racists” so that includes both parties, and since it appears that this judge is likely a dem, obviously Stephen is trying to say racist without having to say democrat.  Kind of like how the MSM never mentions party affiliation when it’s a dem who is found with the bribe money in his freezer.

      Why is race being brought in this?  Really.  Get over it.  Not all criticisms about Obama is about race.   I am not a birther by any means but the incessant cries of racism when race has nothing to do with the issue is ridiculous.  But then everything Stephen says falls into that category.

      • jim_m

        Look more closely. There is good reason to think that the judge is a dem.  so I am willing to back Stephen in his absurd charges of racism.  It’s obviously the racist democrats trying to force obama off the ballot so they can run a white person who might actually win.

        Maybe the dems have decided that obama isn’t as clean looking as Biden once said he was and he certainly has proven less than articulate when the teleprompter is off.

    • 914

      If he were there the racists would be in court.

  • borderraven

    The Mainstream Media (MSM) is to blame for unqualified Obama being passed through the 2008 presidential elections. The MSM hyped and sensationalized Obama on skin color and refused to give challengers to his eligibility fair and unbiased access to media.
    The MSM aided and abetted the fraud of the 2008 election. So, now the MSM cowers in shame.

    Maybe you should stop and pay attention to the birther message and consider the vocal few just may be aware of something you choose to ignore. Just maybe birthers are seeing a critical situation that you need to accept and support, or you will find yourself in a very expensive fight to correct a problem and recover the Constitutional Republic.
    I may be wrong, but you cannot afford it if I prove to be correct, and I lose.
    Give it some thought.

    One thing about Obama’s birth certificate that is strange is the name of the hospital is on it. Also, the name of the hospital on it is not the same name the hospital had at the time he was born there.
     
    My birth certificate has the name of the state where I was born on it, not the name of the hospital. The same is true for my kids, three born in Oklahoma. One was born in Arizona and two born in Missouri. The name of the state is on each one, the name of the hospital does not appear on it. Different states for my kids because I was in the Air Force and stationed at different bases.

    • y_p_w

      Yes – in many states, it’s possible to get a birth certificate for a person born out of state if the parent can prove residency in the state.  That’s not unusual.  That can be done in Michigan (I saw a report on an adopted child getting a Michigan birth certificate that state.  One can do that in Hawaii too.  However, in all cases someone born out of state must have the place of birth listed.  You can get your kids’ original birth certificates registered in the original states, although it’s my understanding some of those states (definitely Missouri) no longer issue “long forms” with the name of the hospital.  If you need to get them passports, I’m not sure how the State Dept handles birth certificates that list an out of state birth.

      http://www.azdhs.gov/vitalrcd/birth_index.htm
      http://health.mo.gov/data/vitalrecords/index.php

      Every state or city has its own form and its own requirements.  I don’t see anything unusual about listing the hospital given how many states do that.  In California, the hospital name has been listed since forever.  My kid’s California birth certificate clearly lists the name of the hospital. In California they’re also considered public records, although “public” certified copies have something added that prevents them from being used for passport/driver license/etc applications.  Here’s the one for Tom Cruise’s kid (born in St John’s Medical Center in Los Angeles):

      Good for you splash.  Wish the MSM, or LSM (Lame Stream Media), was as investigative as you. But we know better; they never intended to do any of that.

  • http://twitter.com/joewarn Joe Davis

    Some of you miss the point.   The plaintiffs finally came upon an honest, patriotic judge who ruled their cases could be heard.   Who knows what the outcome will be?  But that’s what the courts are for, to address grievances brought by citizens.  The other judges have been corrupted, threatened, and some perhaps misguided but they have all in lock-step refused to hear the cases brought before them and simply dismissed on some trumped up procedural excuses without hearing any charges or evidence.  That’s un-American.  Why not let the case be heard and let the chips fall where they may?   And why is Obama keeping his papers secret and fighting so hard to not show he is eligible to be president?   Could it be because he isn’t?? 

    • y_p_w

      What does he need?  Eligibility is established with natural-born citizenship, age at least 35 years, and 14 years’ residency in the United States.  The plaintiffs are taking this as an opportunity to request all sorts of things that this particular court has no power to compel (especially subpoenaing federal records) and are irrelevant to the case at hand.  If the defense shows up with a copy of President Obama’s certified Hawaii birth certificate and evidence that he’s lived in the US for 14 years, it’s pretty much over for the plaintiffs.

      In addition to that, apparently this administrative law judge can choose to quash (or not) as subpoena, but it’s my understanding that he’s got no power to compel anyone to appear.  He’s not a superior court judge.  He’s got no power to issue bench warrants.  And Georgia courts have no power to compel anyone out of state to appear.  If it were a criminal trial, then most states cooperate.  I know some people are getting their hopes up, but the reality is that state courts only have limited reach.

        Do you really think Judge Malihi would subpoena Obama without knowing if he could or not?

        • y_p_w

          Again, the judge did not subpoena Obama.  Attorneys are the ones to issue subpoenas.  They typically receive blank forms that are pre-signed by the judge, although this tribunal has a blank form in Word format with an image of the judge’s signature and the stamp of the court.  You’re not supposed to use one if you’re not a party to an action before the court, but they’re available for anyone to download.

          http://www.osah.ga.gov/documents/subpoenas/subpoena.doc

          A lot of people are pretty sure that attorney Jablonski failed to get this quashed because his motion to quash was poorly written.  Several of the plaintiff’s attorneys have been interviewed as saying they believe Jablonski is going to file an amended motion to quash and that if Jablonski doesn’t make the same mistakes, the judge will.

          “Defendant’s motion suggests that no President should be compelled to attend a Court hearing.  This may be correct.  But Defendant has failed to cite any legal authority evidencing why his attendence …..”

          No part of the denial of the motion to quash says that the judge has ordered President Obama to appear in court.  I understand that this judge has limited powers and would have to refer it to a superior court judge for an order to compel appearance or an order to produce.

      So, Joe, other judges did not do what you wanted them to do. Thus, you say that those judges are corrupted, threatened or misguided. How pathetic!

      President Obama isn’t “keeping his papers secret”. He has already provided an authentic birth certificate which shows that he was born in the USA. SCOTUS has already ruled that a person born in the USA is automatically a natural-born U.S. citizen.

      I don’t want Obama to have a second term in the Oval Office, but I’m not foolish enough to buy into the debunked conspiracy theory that is still being promoted by birthers.

      All that birthers have proven is that kool-aid drinkers exist on both sides of the political aisle.

        Why do you think it took Obama almost three years to show the world his forged birth certificate? (Actually, no one “saw” it.  If you recall, Carney just held it up at a distance).  Wish him luck in Georgia in producing it. Even if he should somehow come up with his genuine BC, he still has to answer the charges of forgery and using a stolen SSN.  (Is that jingling sound I hear handcuffs?)

    And the media goes: Quick, look over there – a shiny thing!

    IF this story gets legs, I’m going to be very surprised if it’s not a *snicker-snicker, look how stupid the Georgia Cretins are* type of coverage.  I honestly think we’ve got too many lawyers, all looking for some sort of work – and you end up with crap like this where the phrasing and meanings are tortured (hey what happened to the Geneva Convention!) to serve political purposes.

    Obama’s compulsive secrecy on his school record is another matter – for an administration supposedly dedicated to open honesty there’s one hell of a lot that’s not open.  While the media shoves a proctoscope into every aspect of Republican candidate lives, they still refuse to give the same sort of examination to Obama’s past.

      What compulsive secrecy on his school record?

      No other President or major Presidential candidate (Republican or Democrat) has ever voluntarily released a school record for public viewing.  The only school information that has been released to the public has been from military records that contain such information.  Military records are subject to FOIA requests, but direct school records are protected by federal law.

      There have been subpoenas issued in this hearing regarding Obama’s school records.  Even if the defense doesn’t object, I’d be surprised if the judge didn’t disallow that kind of information as being irrelevant to the purpose of the hearing.  This is an eligibility hearing, and if it’s not relevant to eligibility matters, then the judge will shut it down.

    • http://www.wizbangblog.com David Robertson

      This may be a side topic, but I’m going to ask anyway:
      What does Obama’s school record have to do with anything relevant to his presidency? The last time that I checked, the U.S. Constitution does not require the President to have a college education. Ranting about Obama’s school record is a case of trivial pursuit.

      • y_p_w

        I’ve heard the rationale.  Some birthers claim that Obama must have been on some sort of financial aid at Occidental or Columbia that might have only been available for foreign nationals and/or he used a different name.

        They’re basically looking for dirt and using their one chance to see if they can get it.  I think they’re also hoping that they can see his grades, as it may be embrassing if he weren’t an A student.

        I don’t believe this is the kind of hearing where failure to show up or produce evidence results in a default judgement.  A birth certificate issued by Hawaii complete with a seal is practically bulletproof according to Georgia’s rules of evidence.  Everything else is a sideshow.  The usual stuff they handle in the administrative courts is rather mundane.  The court website only notes that not showing up may mean that one’s input is not considered by the judge.  It’s not like a criminal trial where one has to be able to face one’s accuser.

        My sincere hope is that some of these are so consumed by their hate that once a certified birth certificate is introduced, someone tries to destroy it in full view of the judge.  At which point Michael Jablonski just pulls out another one from his briefcase.  Hawaii has some of the lowest prices for certified birth certificates in the US.  They’re only $10 for the first copy and $4 for each additional copy.  They could order up dozens or even hundreds just to be prepared.  If they can affirmatively show that Obama meets the eligibility requirements, there’s nothing the plaintiffs can do to persuade the judge.

    TWBI doubt the President of the United States will show up in Atlanta for a birther hearing

    Not entirely sure about the rules regarding this sort of thing and whether or not it’s acceptable simply to send in an attorney, but Barry had better NOT just blowt this thing off.  Yes, it’s silly.  Yes, it’s a waste of Barry’s (and everybody else’s) time.  BUT, he has been served a lawful subpoena by a judge.  Nobody has the right to blow that off.

    • y_p_w

      Judges don’t serve subpoenas.  Attorneys do.  The courts issue pre-signed forms that the attorneys fill out and send without having to clear it with the court.  It’s up to the judge to quash them if there is a motion to quash.

      You want to issue a subpoena, “signed” by the judge? Feel free to do so.  Just download it and fill it in:

      http://www.osah.ga.gov/documents/subpoenas/subpoena.doc

      I’m not actualy suggesting you do this by the way, but you can clearly see that the judge didn’t issue the subpoena. The attorneys have blank forms already pre-signed and stamped by the court. Georgia is also lax in that they allow a subpoena to be mailed without any attempt at personal service.

      • herddog505

        Love to see the look on the judge’s face when somebody shows up bearing a subpoena that the judge knows nothing about.  It would be ALMOST as choice as the look on the attorney’s face after the judge calls him to his chambers.

          I think in order for a subpoena to be technically valid, it needs to be properly served, references a hearing that is before the court, be received in time (this court says five days before the hearing), and be filed with the clerk of the court.  Even if the judge doesn’t quash a subpoena, that doesn’t mean it’s enforceable.  Those are two separate matters.  There are several subpoenas that “attorney” Taitz has improperly served to offices/people outside of Georgia, and for the most part they’ve been ignored because the recipients know they’re not properly served and are otherwise unenforceable.  DHHS sent a letter back to Taitz informing her of laws (that a state subpoena has no effect on a federal office) that you’d think an attorney would know.

          That doesn’t mean the judge is going to order that anyone show up.  Dr. C noted that a Georgia administrative court judge has no authority to compel anyone to show up or even produce evidence.  They can quash a suboena though.

          I was just pointing to the pre-signed subpoena as an indication that A) it’s too easy to send out a subpoena, and B) that the judge has nothing to do with composing or theoretically even signing a subpoena.

        y_p_wJudges don’t serve subpoenas.  

        An inartful phrase.  I don’t suggest that judges run about personally serving subpeonas, but rather that a subpoena is issued on behalf of the judge (the court) and carries the weight of his authority.

        • y_p_w

          The authority of a Georgia Administrative Courts judge is apparently pretty weak.  They make it way too easy to serve a subpoena; an attempt to make personal service isn’t even required.  The judges only make recommendations to government agencies.

          Besides that, even superior court judges don’t have much power to enforce a subpoena out of state.  Judge Malihi sure as heck didn’t order that President Obama show up in his courtroom; he declined to quash the subpoena based on the weakness of the motion to quash.  In order for him to actually order Obama to sho, that would require an order to compel attendance, which I understand an administrative court judge in Georgia can’t even issue.

          I understand that a typical case handled in this system would be someone denied a state license or permit trying to persuade the judge to ask an agency to reconsider.

            So you would have a Usurper and Criminal as your President. 

          • y_p_w

            Well he’s not a “Usurper” if he’s eligible to be President.  I believe he is eligible.  I’m just waiting for the birth certificate to be introduced in court, but I believe that there is a genuine representation of the birth certificate hosted on the White House website.

            I think you’re suffering from “confirmation bias”.  It seems like you have a specific outcome that must happen, and you’re only accepting so-called evidence that confirms that bias.

    What is it about Georgia lately?  A newspaper editor in Atlanta just advocated that Israel assassinate Obama:  http://www.myfoxatlanta.com/dpp/news/local_news/Atlanta-Jewish-Times-Column-Suggests-Hit-on-Obama-20120120-pm-pk

      I’m not certain that any publication that claims a weekly circulation of “several thousand” should be considered anything but fringe. and not really representative of anyone other than the crackpot that is writing it.  I’ll further note that the editor who wrote the opinion column is also the owner of the publication. 

      The Atlanta Constitution it ain’t.

        Half the posts on Wizbang are devoted to outrage about fringe leftists and Muslims saying something crazy.

          Chico, would you care to back up your claim with verifiable statistics?

          • Commander_Chico

            No, because I can indulge in hyperbole just like anyone else here.

    Judge Malihi has NOT ordered Obama to do anything. Orly Taitz took a blank subpoena form with the judge’s signature on it from a State web site and served Obama’s attorney with it. While the judge has denied a motion to quash that subpoena, an administrative judge in Georgia has no authority to compel anyone to appear before him. That takes an order from the Superior Court. Let me add that I see no evidence to support speculation that Judge Malihi is a birther.

    • acerbic

      Ayup. I’d like to add that anybody who still takes at face value any birfoon claims about what a judge ordered is an incurable moron.

      If this Hearing takes place, it will be shown that Obama has usurped the Presidency, is using a stolen SSN and allowed forged birth documents on his website and on line.

       He will not appear because there no way he will sit there and face these charges in person.  He will not honor the subpoena and could care less.  This President has shown many times his contempt for the law. Why should he stop now?

      You show your indifference to the law and an appalling  lack of ethics by trying to maneuver Obama into a postion of innocence.  Shame on you.

        George W Bush ignored every single Congressional subpoena that he received while he was in office.

    The issue is quite simple. To be President of the USA or to run for the Presidency of the USA, Obama must be a “natural born citizen” according to the Constitution of the USA. The term “natural born citizen” has been defined previously and it requires two conditions:
    1) Obama must be born in the USA.
    The forged document provided by the White House web site of Obama’s supposedly long form birth certificate is simply that, a bad forgery!
    Therefore, the only way to check this long form birth certificate is to go to Hawaii and to check directly the original long form birth certificate and in particular to assess if even this original is genuine that is if it is not also a forgery!!
    2) Obama’s parents MUST BOTH be American citizens.
    We know that Obama’s father was a Kenyan and that he NEVER was an American citizen!!!!!
    Therefore, THIS SECOND CONDITION ALONE DISQUALIFIES OBAMA TO RUN FOR THE PRESIDENCY OF THE USA AND IT ALSO DISQUALIFIES OBAMA TO BE PRESIDENT OF THE USA, NO MATTER THE FACT THAT HE WON THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION!!!!!!

    More, Obama is a former lawyer. Therefore, he knew perfectly well that he was not entitled to run for the Presidency of the USA but he nevertheless did it DISHONESTLY, FRAUDULENTLY, deceiving purposefully the entire American people.

    Furthermore, Obama was confronted with the definition of what a “natural born citizen” is when he directly participated in the investigation of John McCain’s eligibility to run for the Presidency of the USA. Obama then signed Senate Resolution 511 from April 30, 2008 that reveals the indispensable requirement of having two US citizen parents in order to be a “natural born citizen” according to the Constitution of the USA and therefore to be eligible to run for the Presidency of the USA or to be President of the USA!!!!!
    Therefore, once again, Obama knew very well that he FRAUDULENTLY decided to run for the Presidency of the USA despite the fact that he knew perfectly well that he was NOT a natural born citizen and therefore that he was not entitled, according to the Constitution of the USA, to be President of the USA.

    First Conclusion:
    —Obama is NOT a natural born citizen and therefore he is not entitled to run for the Presidency of the USA nor is he entitled to be President of the USA, no matter the fact that he won the Presidential election!!!!
    —Finally, Obama is a former lawyer and therefore OBAMA CONSCIOUSLY, INTENTIONALLY COMPLETELY DECEIVED THE ENTIRE AMERICAN PEOPLE BY RUNNING FOR THE PRESIDENCY OF THE USA WHEN HE KNEW PERFECTLY WELL THAT HE WAS NOT ENTITLED TO DO SO SIMPLY BECAUSE HE KNEW VERY WELL THAT HE WAS NOT A NATURAL BORN CITIZEN, AS THE CONSTITUTION OF THE USA REQUIRES ONLY ON THE PRESIDENT OF THE USA!!!!
    —THIS HUGE DECEPTION IS MORE THAN A FRAUDULENT ACT, IT IS WORSE THAN ANYTHING IMAGINABLE BECAUSE:
    1) IT RELATES TO THE HIGHEST POSITION IN THE LAND, THE PRESIDENCY OF THE USA, THAT OBAMA HAS FRAUDULENTLY OBTAINED;
    2) IT RELATES TO THE CONSTITUTION OF THE USA BEING TRAMPLED UPON FRAUDULENTLY AND ILLEGALLY BY OBAMA;
    3) IT RELATES TO THE FACT THAT OBAMA INTENTIONALLY DECEIVED AND MISLED THE ENTIRE AMERICAN PEOPLE!!!
    ANY PERSON GUILTY OF SUCH SERIOUS FRAUD SHOULD AT LEAST GET A JAIL SENTENCE, NO MATTER THAT OBAMA HAS FRAUDULENTY HELD THE POSITION OF PRESIDENT OF THE USA FOR A PERIOD OF TIME!!!

    If you really want to have an expert legal explanation on what a “natural born citizen” truly is according to the Constitution of the USA and why legally speaking it is this way, then I suggest that you read at least a few articles on Attorney Mario Apuzzo’s web site “Natural Born Citizen – A Place to Ask Questions and Get the Right Answers” at http://puzo1.blogspot.com/
    In particular, read:
    —”The Natural Born Citizen Clause of Our U.S. Constitution Requires that Both of the Child’s Parents Be U.S. Citizens At the Time of Birth” at http://puzo1.blogspot.com/2009/09/natural-born-citizen-clause-requires.html
    —”Obama – Maybe a Citizen of the United States but Not a “natural born Citizen” of the United States” http://puzo1.blogspot.com/2010/03/obama-maybe-citizen-of-united-states.html

    Second conclusion:
    —If you are a rational person, no matter your political affiliation, you surely will be forced to conclude that the facts speak for themselves and that there is no doubt legally that a “natural born citizen” indeed requires that a President of the USA has two parents that were BOTH American citizens at the time of birth.
    —You now have the facts fully on the table concerning what a “natural born citizen” truly is, you cannot evade the truth about these facts!!!
    Now, what path are you going to choose? 1) Lie and hide the facts or 2) Choose to acknowledge the facts fully and fight for the truth? The choice is yours!
