Further to my previous post, good news, America!
For some time now, I have deliberately avoided discussing the eligibility issue. Why? With so many legal developments on so many fronts, it was simply too daunting to keep up with, and the dead ends and disappointments were so painful. I also believed that, in time, the truth would have its day in court. And so it has!
Art2superpac.com live streamed the court proceedings which took place on January 26th. Though the audio was often garbled and unintelligible, I watched and listened with a mixture of foreboding and vindication and monitored what few authoritative after action reports I could find on the internet.
In a fairly packed court on January 26th, the OSAH court in Atlanta was gravelled to order by Judge Malihi @9:33AM. Having been informed on January 25th by Obama's attorney, Michael Jablonski, that neither Obama not his attorney would appear at the hearing, in a pre-hearing with plaintiff attorneys Taitz, Hatfield and Irion, Judge Malihi signaled he would enter a "default judgement" against Obama. Delighted but cautious, plaintiff attorneys requested that for the first time ever the actual evidence of Obama's ineligibility be entered into the record. Judge Malihi agreed and allowed for a relatively speedy hearing (aprox 2 hrs).
Note: this is the first time a court has allowed arguments and evidence on the merits of the controversy over Obama's eligibility. Heretofore, the evidence was never allowed to see the light of day by sitting judges. And this: only matters of law--not the evidence itself--may be appealed. Clearly, the Obama machine stumbled big time when it arrogantly failed to appear. Since they didn't take the time to refute the arguments, the evidence is, for all practical purposes, unassailable--the evidence presented at the hearing cannot now be disputed later on appeal. A major victory!!!
With the help of expert witnesses flown in from all over the country, the attorneys cogently, calmly, substantively, albeit hurriedly, discussed the constitutional meaning of "natural born citizen" (relying upon an amicus brief from Leo Donofrio and an analysis of the 1875 Minor v Happersett ruling on the subject), the illegitimacy of Obama's Birth Certificate, and Obama's fraudulent use of a Social Security number assigned to a deceased person born in 1890.
Following the testimony and presentation of evidence, Judge Malihi ordered all attorneys to file briefs and a summary of "facts and points of law" to him by February 5th. At that time, he will review the evidence and, per Georgia law, render a "recommendation" to the Georgia Sec. of State as to whether or not Obama's name should appear on the Georgia presidential ballot in 2012.
From all reports, Mr. Kemp, Sec. of State, has agreed that he will act in accordance with the Judge's recommendation. Of course, how soon after his review of the evidence and facts of law on February 5th Judge Malihi will actually submit a recommendation to Mr. Kemp uncertain. In any event, my hope is that his decision will, at long last, be just and timely. And at this juncture, and despite a possibly vengeful Obama whose ruthless sycophants are capable of considerable mischief, there is nothing to persuade me that the judge will be anything but judicious, forthright and fair. He is to be roundly commended for his unprecedented courage and integrity, and I urge all readers to contact him thank him for his extraordinary service.
Note: I scoured the internet for evidence of media coverage of this seminal development. Except for Druge and American Thinker, NADA. I was able to view one telecast of an Atlanta WST-TV newscast about the hearing, but, true to form, it pooh-poohed the hearing and erroneously reported that plaintiffs were trying to prove once again that Obama is not a "US Citizen". Another insidious example of the media's willful ignorance or calculated dissembling, or both. Notable too was the disturbing silence of "we're watching out for you" O'Reilly and "question with boldness" Beck. Hiding under their beds, to be sure. Frauds!
I cannot overstate how monumentally important this hearing has been. Evidence of Obama's ineligibility is now part of the judicial record and cannot be expunged or otherwise ignored.
Finally, and on a more sobering note, what my abiding concern is the possibly tumultuous effect this will have on the country. Can we properly manage a painful constitutional crisis of this magnitude and all the legal and political ramifications such a crisis will surely entail? Will ruthless remedies be relied upon by darker forces at work to nullify this historic turn of events? Frankly, I am no longer sure that most Americans--and most certainly not our entrenched political elite--are up to the challenge of peacefully, fearlessly and properly restoring constitutional order. But, come what may, we can all be proud and buoyed by the fact that the Constitution and the Rule of Law won a resounding victory yesterday. Now let's pray that Judge Malihi and Sec. of State Kemp do their jobs judiciously and forthrightly.
Stay tuned. I would strongly suggest your monitoring Citizen Wells, TalkWisdom, and the Post and Email for authoritative and credible analyses and updates.
God Bless America! And God Bless those few Americans who refused to surrender in the face of derision, threats and lies. Let's keep on marching forward to a better day for America!
