Update January 28th: There is a very interesting blow-by-blow account of what happened in that Georgia court at The National Patriot. Hat tip: Judy (If the link isn’t opening for you, search The National Patriot and scroll to the post on January 26th—ed)
Jerome Corsi writing at World Net Daily reports on what happened in a Georgia court yesterday where Obama’s lawyers failed to appear.
Georgia citizens today delivered sworn testimony to a court that Barack Obama is slam-dunk disqualified from having his name on the 2012 presidential ballot in the state, because his father never was a U.S. citizen, which prevents him from qualifying as a “natural-born citizen” as the U.S. Constitution requires for a president.
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. His supporters, meanwhile, argue he won the 2008 election and therefore was “vetted” by America.
The hearing was before Judge Michael Malihi of the Georgia state Office of State Administrative Hearings.
The primary argument that those who brought the case charge is that because his father was a Kenyan (British citizen at that time), that would make Obama not a “natural born citizen” as envisioned by the founders (they say). Most Americans would like to see the US Supreme Court rule on this point simply to get the issue resolved one way or the other for all future elections.
He [expert on the Constitution cited by Corsi] told WND the fact that Obama’s father was a Kenyan citizen should be sufficient.
“That is much stronger than the question of where he was born,” he said. “That alone is evidence. … They don’t need anything additional.”
Other allegations were raised by an attorney for the plaintiffs:
Taitz argued multiple prongs of the case: that the birth certificate released by the White House is a forgery; that he probably has had several citizenships, such as when he was listed in Indonesia as an Indonesian citizen; and that he’s been known under the names Obama, Soetoro and Soebarkah.
She also had a private investigator, Susan Daniels, testify that it appears Obama is using a fraudulent Social Security number.
Documents and imaging expert Doug Vogt asserted the birth documentation released by the White House was a creation of a software program and not a scan of any original document. That would mean Obama’s documentation, despite what the White House released in April, is still under wraps.
It would be nice to have all these issues finally put to rest, but….
Obama and his attorney boycotted the proceedings…
