Obama Disrespects Court, State, America, Constitution by Skipping Eligibility Hearing

Dave Tombers, WND.com

One of the attorneys who fought a court case over Barack Obama’s eligibility to be president all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court says he fears that even if the U.S. Supreme Court declared Obama unqualified, he’d simply ignore the ruling and continue issuing orders.

But those who observed a court hearing today in Atlanta say it could be the beginning of the end for the Obama campaign, because of the doubt that could surge like a tidal wave across the nation.

The comments came today from Leo Donofrio, who led the pack in filing lawsuits over Obama’s 2008 election and his subsequent occupancy of the White House.

He was commenting on today’s hearing before a Georgia administrative law judge on complaints raised by several state residents that Obama is not eligible to run for the office in 2012. That hearing went on after Obama and his lawyer decided to snub the court system and refuse to participate.

A decision from the judge, Michael Malihi, is expected soon.

The Georgia residents delivered sworn testimony to a court that, among other things, Obama is forever disqualified from having his name on the 2012 presidential ballot in the state because his father never was a U.S. citizen. Because the Constitution’s requirement presidents be a “natural born citizen,” which is the offspring of two citizen parents, he is prevented from qualifying, they say.

The historic hearing was the first time that a court has accepted arguments on the merits of the controversy over Obama’s status. His critics say he never met the constitutional requirements to occupy the Oval Office, and the states and Congress failed in their obligations to make sure only a qualified president is inaugurated, while his supporters say he won the 2008 election and therefore was “vetted” by America.

In Georgia, the law requires “every candidate for federal” office who is certified by the state executive committees of a political party or who files a notice of candidacy “shall meet the constitutional and statutory qualifications for holding the office being sought.”

State law also grants the secretary of state and any “elector who is eligible to vote for a candidate” in the state the authority to raise a challenge to a candidate’s qualifications, the judge determined.

Citizens bringing the complaints include David Farrar, Leah Lax, Thomas Malaren and Laurie Roth, represented by Taitz; David Weldon represented by attorney Van R. Irion of Liberty Legal Foundation; and Carl Swensson and Kevin Richard Powell, represented by J. Mark Hatfield. Cody Judy is raising a challenge because he also wants to be on the ballot.

Donofrio’s case – like all the others that have reached the Supreme Court – simply was refused recognition….

    • Yes, you know what, his job running the country is more important than giving credence to a BS lawsuit like this. If you really think he isn't qualified for his job, then vote for someone else in November, but by buying into this nonsense, you just make yourself look incredibly stupid.

        What is "nonsense", specifically, Brandon? He IS running the country…over cliff, and it is that reality that actually lends strong credence to claims about his technical ineligibity on Constitutional grounds, as well as his functional and intellectual ineligibilities…did you hear his recent speech about how he wants us "to make stuff and move stuff and ship stuff.."? Obanomics…make "stuff". Like awesome, dude… So what is the specific nonsense? Logic would dictate that if there is "nonsense", facts will bear that out and prove it. So why the objection to letting the process run it's course?

        It appears to me that you are the leftest brainwashed stupid! This nation has had an illegal president in violation of our Constitution which is the only guaranteed of our freedoms, which in fact have been violate several times just recently by not just a rogug president but also by a rogue Congress. And you think we should just ignor the violations of our founding document. Yes you are not just stupid, you are an enemy of the Republic! The only incredibly stupid looking people these days are the ones that have had three years to study and find the truth of this Obamanation and have not!

  • This is bullshit and anyone with a brain knows it. This is COMPLETELY ABOUT RACE. If Obama's name were, say, David Johnson, would this be happening? No. This is the right's attempt to continuously portray him as a foreigner, as strange, as alien. It has failed. This country makes me sick. He is the President of the United States. He won a fair election, and he will win this November. Get over it. America doesn't want anymore right-wing fascists in the WH. The 'birther' movement is insulting to those of us with even below-average intelligence.

      Isn't it entirely possible that if his name were "David Johnson" , he could still be of any race? You speak with a lot of emphatic,but baseless, absolutes, Brandon…"This is COMPLETELY ABOUT RACE." How so? Just because you said so? The reasons for the court action have merit, and race is not one of those merits. I'm puzzled,,,you say that anyone with a brain knows this is bullshit, and yet you go onto characterize your own self as having below-average intelligence. Exert yourself intellectually and drop the knee-jerk, bumper-sticker platitudes that are a poor substitute for failing to think things through. Sorry this country makes you sick…where will you go> Greece? Egypt? Venezuela?

      Another incredibly stupid comment from and incredible stupid leftist!Romney is not black and I am saying though he has a better claim than the Muslim usurpert, he to IS NOT a "natural born" citizen and is not Constitutionally eligible to the office of president, though he is about 10000 times as capable as the Obamanation. Rubio is not black, but he is not by virtue of being born to non-citizens even on US soil not eligible to the office of president! You either support the Constitution or you do not. If you do not you are an enemy of the CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC, and as such my enemy. You have a lot to learn. I note that you confess to below average intelligence, that is a correctable situation, but only in those who care! You might start by looking up 'fascist, in a creditable dictionary or encyclopedia. It is incredible how much more intelligent one can sound by just using correct words for the sututation at hand. Hint fascism is not necessaryily that of the right. the socialist nazis were fascist, and the Obamanation socialist are close. PS

      When he's found to be ineligible to hold office then maybe you and your family can live in a grass hut with the former illegal preident.

  • Jimmy Dean/TX

    I worry too that even if the U.S. Supreme Court declared Obama unqualified,he’d simply ignore the ruling and continue issuing orders and acting like Our President ( who he isn't) . He is nothing but a crook, and him and his cronies, Holder, Napolitano and the whole bunch deserved to be hung for Treason and trying to kill our lady of liberty – THE USA…

  • ByeByeObama

    You know the sad thing is that people who read this will believe that it is true. And what I mean by that is, Do you honestly think that the man who has wrecked our country for the past four years, passed bills in almost secrecy, passed a bill that allows the fed government to detain us citizens upon the thought of them being a terrorist or involved with a terrorist organization. You honestly think that any court is going to stop him from being on the ballot… really/? I will be utterly shocked if he is not on there. I dont think that he will win another election, but on that same note… Im not so sure that he will not throw us into another war just to keep office. I am all for getting our country back to the basics of where she was founded. Liberty, Freedom, all under God… If you think the governemtn owes you anything, or your want the goernment to take care of you so you dont have to lift a finger, while the rest of us who strive to provide for our familes have to take care of your lazy self… Why dont you move.
