Betrayal: Georgia judge rules Obama is eligible

It was too good to be true.
Even before the hearing began on January 26, 2012, Georgia’s administrative law judge Michael Malihi was prepared to make a default ruling in favor of the plaintiffs for the simple reason that the defendant, Barack Obama, and his attorney skipped the hearing, thereby, forfeiting their defense.
At the time, there were some who wondered why Malihi would need several days to issue his ruling. But I remained optimistic.
I was wrong.
Today, Malihi issued his ruling in favor of Obama. And so Barry Soetoro’s name will remain on the Georgia primary election ballot.
Bill Rankin reports for The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Feb. 3, 2012:

President Barack Obama’s name will remain on the Georgia primary ballot after a state law judge flatly rejected legal challenges that contend he can not be a candidate. 

In a 10-page order, Judge Michael Malihi dismissed one challenge that contended Obama has a computer-generated Hawaiian birth certificate, a fraudulent Social Security number and invalid U.S. identification papers. He also turned back another that claimed the president is ineligible to be a candidate because his father was not a U.S. citizen at the time of Obama’s birth.

The findings by Malihi, a judge for the State Office of Administrative Hearings, go to Secretary of State Brian Kemp, who will make the final determination. Last month, at a hearing boycotted by Obama’s lawyer, Malihi considered complaints brought by members of the so-called “birther” movement.

With regard to the challenge that Obama does not have legitimate birth and identification papers, Malihi said he found the evidence “unsatisfactory” and “insufficient to support plaintiffs’ allegations.”

A number of the witnesses who testified about the alleged fraud were never qualified as experts in birth records, forged documents and document manipulation and “none … provided persuasive testimony,” Malihi wrote.

Addressing the other claim that contends Obama cannot be a candidate because his father was never a U.S. citizen, Malihi said he was persuaded by a 2009 ruling by the Indiana Court of Appeals decision that struck down a similar challenge. In that ruling, the Indiana court found that children born within the U.S. are natural-born citizens, regardless of the citizenry of their parents.

Obama “became a citizen at birth and is a natural-born citizen,” Malihi wrote. Accordingly, Obama is eligible as a candidate for the upcoming presidential primary in March, the judge said.

Even though Malihi ruled in Obama’s favor, he expressed displeasure that the president’s lawyer, Michael Jablonski of Atlanta, refused to attend the recent hearing.

“By deciding this matter on the merits, the court in no way condones the conduct or legal scholarship of defendant’s attorney, Mr. Jablonski,” Malihi wrote. “This decision is entirely based on the law, as well as the evidence and legal arguments presented at the hearing.”

Mr. Malihi, you will have to answer to God for your abominable ruling. If I ever meet you in person, I will spit on you.

UPDATE:

Got word from Carl Swensson, one of the plaintiffs, via my friend Mark McGrew:

This was round one of a 4-round fight. Swensson is appealing Malihi’s ruling to Georgia’s State Superior Court, then to the State Supreme Court, and then to the U.S. Supreme Court. So let’s gear up and let people know it’s not over.

I wrote back to Mark: “They’ll have to kill me to stop me.”

Update (Feb. 7, 2012):

Carl Swensson says Georgia’s Secretary of State Brian Kemp is siding with Malihi. The betrayal is complete.

I am feeling very disappointed but I am also feeling very angry. We have a country without law. Malihi was plainly shown US passport records showing the name change to Soebarkah. He was given documentation showing Mr Soetero failed E Verify. He was clearly shown the photoshopped certificate of birth was not a scan of an original document. He was threatened, paid off or he is just a coward but he certainly did not live up to his oath of office.

The rats are all leaving the sinking ship. One by one these punks are showing their true colors. We have a DOJ headed by Eric Holder, and yesterday, the Issa investigation of Fast & Furious was streaming live. The display of threatrical greasiness by Elijah Cummings and four other Black Americans, plus two White Guys, one of which was Denis Kucinich, who said he was late because guess what, he had just come from the National Prayer Breakfast with President Obama, and that he had been praying for Eric Holder there.

When it comes right down to it the judge is just a person that wants to continue getting a paycheck.
If you were set down and intimidated by government spooks and know your life would be over; no job, no money, a ruined family, followed by your suicide, and to top it off being a gutless coward; the results would be the same as the judge presented.
So don’t blame him for folding under pressures that you can’t even imagine.
No excuse, just reality.

Under normal circumstances yes, BUT, since Barack Obama is on the verge of triggering World War Three, thermonuclear warfare no less with Russia and China and India, and is armed to the teeth especially with nuclear submarines, then worrying about your health or family won’t do much good………… the oligarchs behind Obama won’t stop at the judge, they won’t be happy till we’re all blown to smithereens. So he missed his chance to be a hero, I bet he’s not sleeping easy.
Never mind, God will not leave himself without a witness, so ………………….NEXT……………………………….

just forget it folks. These stories and incidents are made to string you along. You pay far to much attention, and pay to much homage, to the system. Forget the system because it will never ever work for you. It is laced with bought-off criminal gov employees who serve their corporation. Your meer attention to these issues signifies you are wholly concerned with the corporation, thus making you a servant/employee to the corporation. Forget the system. Divest from the system. Why is it that people think we are “stuck” with this corrupt system? Start a new one! WHo’s to stop… Read more »

Someone tell Carl that all the lawyers screwed up big time!! It was incredibly stupid to present evidence when you had an offer for a default order.
When a case is so ridiculously politically charged like this one is you don’t give the judge ANY wiggle room AT ALL if you have the chance!
If these lawyers are involved in cases in any other states, they MUST take the default!!
1- Get the default
2- AFTER you get the default get the contempt of court
3- After #2, go for the natural born citizen angle
4- then get the “quo warranto”

Kelley, You are might be an attorney. I went to law school at night (NY) only to get educated as I was Soviet refugee; and now proud US citizen for 35 years. I think, the strategy behind was to have evidence in record. Appeal from the record, and Obama will have to respond from same record. It also might help other complaints in other states. “Natural born citizen” angle failed before even on appeal to SC i.e. Dinorfio. Only Congress can bring POTUS on criminal charges etc. I hope it eventually works somewhere, and media will have no choice but… Read more »

I’m not an attorney. I understand their strategy. You can see where that strategy left them. The first goal is to take Obama off the ballot. Once that thought permeates the public consciousness, then it is easier to take the next step. Instead, the plaintiffs have just made it almost impossible to win this case due to the politically charged nature of the case. With the default it would have changed everything., because it would have started to change minds. Now we are asking judges to do the unthinkable. With a victory. It spreads to more states with greater ease… Read more »

This unconscionable ruling fits, ‘like hand in glove’ – – OJ Simpson style, what the DOJ has been doing to America since Holder and obama usurped the Judicial and Executive offices.
Our last and only chance is a blistering landslide election of honest, Constitutional folks, at Local, State and Federal levels in November. Their first task will be to nullify the un-Constitutional acts of this regime; i.e., nearly everything that has ‘passed through’ Congress.

The curtain may never be drawn back for Americans to see the truth. Our best bet is the coming election. My hope is to bury this President in a landslide victory for the Republican Party and my wish is that this country wake up and never again elect someone with as few credentials as this President has.

You can bet on the fact that the majority of American voters are no longer capable of having the intelligence to not repeat this fiasco over again and again. The belief that the Republican candidate is going to change the direction of this country for the better except for one is an idiot. The New World Order will not permit this to happen and the foolish hope that somehow a pack of lying sacks of hyena ding will miraculously become our saviors is also believed by idiots. Which one is your favorite hyena. We are truly finished. Those who will… Read more »

You can always count on the Sheeeple to run around bleating for a leader to follow. There are very few good leaders and those are maligned out of existence and those who weather it like Ron Paul have a informed following that will never fall back into complacency. In his case even those who know his position and fear and hate him have something to worry about; it is the return to a Constitutional government. The Constitution, which they have been educated to believe is obsolete and socialism is the way of the future. People who classify themselves as conservative… Read more »

Complacency, Ah yes the mark of my generation, I hate to admit that we were complacent, but we are not anymore. BO’s election woke us up, after Santelli called for another tea party, we accommodated him and we had no “leader”. Glenn Beck had already started his 912 movement and they happily joined the tea party. I cannot remember a more unjustly maligned group than the tea party. But we press onward because we MUST reclaim this country for our grandchildren. As far as a “true” conservative goes, anyone with just a little conservative in them, at this point, is… Read more »

I’m having trouble finding Glenn Beck since Faux Noise fired him. I think he’s on the Web. Like me.
I’m easily duped by foreigners masquerading as USA-born citizens, so I voted Obama in 2008, and this GOP Klown Kar … well, it looks as if I’ll be voting Obama again in November. I got $5 says me and the other easily duped voters will give him a second term.

Guy’s and gal’s we have ourselves a serious problem. It simply defies any semblance of logic that any sane person could sit in judgment over a trial as straight forward as the one in Georgia and not find for the plaintiffs. There simply must have been something more pressing than truth or the law involved here — and, I believe it was something more compelling and far less polite than a simple offer of money. Take this and that similar refusal by the DOJ to find against those people who refused to appear at trial for disrupting the voting in… Read more »
