Betrayal: Georgia judge rules Obama is eligible

Rate this post

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.

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.

  1. I had a feeling, and you were right it was too good to be true.

  2. Well THAT is disappointing.

  3. We may as well put a match to the Constitution and just get it over with.
    Sunk far, we have.
    Think I’ll load up FS and go flying for a bit – someplace like northern Alaska.
    I’ll catch you guys tomorrow.

  5. 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.

  6. The ‘judge’ has been bought off or his life was threatened. No doubt! When will there be someone who is brave enough to die for his country?

  7. 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. I nearly fainted.
    Anyway, Carl Svensson is a good man and I know he will do his best. In the meantime, the new argument is not that the plaintiffs don’t have “standing”, it seems now that the criteria is that the experts weren’t qualified enough to know if a birth certificate was forged or not, and that remarks about a fake SS number have to be verfied by someone who is “qualified”. So we have to be on the lookout for this kind of expert. Don’t worry you’ll,
    God is in control and his timing is impeccable so he knows when the time is right, he’s always on time.
    He’s and ontime God, so we have to keep on pressing towards the mark and he will be God. Okay?

  8. 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……………………………….

  9. This makes me sick. I had figured Judge Malihi’s life was at stake when I first heard about this court case.

  10. 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 us and under what law could they. They cannot if you believe we are the government.
    Just forget it. The verdict will not be overturned by a State or Federal judge. Are you kidding me?

  11. God help us! This is so Not the outcome I had expected. 🙁 If you or I were to ‘not’ show up for court, there would be a warrant for our arrest.
    I am outraged…you bet I am! Someone or something got to him, and this is beyond any reason of acceptability… it’s appalling.

  12. wow! cool! a den of Afterbirthers!
    Well, somebody has to tell Americans that he was born in Antarctica to Jihadist penguins.

    • Too bad the organization you blog about, Planned Parenthood, doesn’t promote “afterbirthers”….
      And it’s an insult to penguins, rather cute and kind creatures, to associate Skippy with them.

    • Look, ‘Creeptron’… DUDE! Your attempt at -[ahem]- humor is sorely lacking. You are free to take a flying leap… K? Thanks! 😉

    • So just how many skins of murdered minority children are your lampshades made out of, you worthless, child-murdering, NAZI racist piece of shit?

    • Too bad your parents didn’t abort the spawn I am sure has them embarrassed beyond words to this day.
      Of course, you probably knifed them in their sleep long ago.
      And I bet you are a homo that boinked your sister when she was 11, too – once you figured out how.
      My guess is you require tweezers for self-gratification, along with a lot of help from your friends.
      Sucks to be you, I guess.

  13. The power is still in the hands of the people.
    And the outcome is truly in the hands of our ALL-POWERFUL Loving Lord.
    He took Satan to the mat 2,000 years ago……don’t think for a second He won’t do it again!
    Whoa to those who believe otherwise.
    The Cobbster

  14. I think he promised them the seven virgins.

  15. 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 to report. It got to get people’s attention and education.
      God bless America’s people.
      Fear No Evil.

      • 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 and with Obama continuing to default. (He has no other choice unless he wants to spend his remaining days in jail.)
        That would have opened doors to the rest, with him still going to jail or being executed for treason.

      • Dear “Fear No Evil,”
        You are exactly right. Although Judge Malihi was prepared to issue a default ruling because the defendant and his attorney boycotted the hearing — or so it’s said — the plaintiffs’ attorneys wanted to have the hearing regardless because they wanted their arguments and evidence to be entered into the court’s PUBLIC and PERMANENT record. You are also correct that the purpose of that is so that any future defense or judge’s ruling on this matter will have to address their arguments and evidence.
        In his ruling, Malihi did refer to those attorneys’ arguments and evidence, and purportedly found them wanting. But what is questionable is that (1) Malihi did that in the absence of any defense; and (2) his objections to some of those arguments, evidence, and witnesses are themselves questionable. All of which means there’s ample grounds for the plaintiffs to appeal Malihi’s ruling.
        More on all this in a post to come, probably tomorrow: “An Autopsy of Georgia Judge’s Eligibility Ruling.”

  16. the system is to far gone to the left to be of value

  17. Justice is truly blind, especially after its eyes are gouged out.
    Goodbye Constitution and America it was nice while it lasted.
    Good riddance to patriots who just talk about it and won’t fight in the streets for it.
    Hello New World Order, what do you want us to do Massa, wez is yo monkey.

  18. Well, the antichrist was supposed to usher in a period of lawlessness, no?

  19. Is it okay to use a stronger word here than shenanigans? We aren’t talking about a fraternity prank here. this is deadly serious and affects the fate of the nation.
    The beat down decision smacks of corruption or criminal intimidation.

  20. 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.

  21. 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.

  22. 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 not give in and quit are now in a small minority. I concider myself to be one of those of the minority.
    As far as the belief, proposed by many, that we are nearing the tipping point is absolutely laughable. To assume that this nebulous line drawn somewhere in the future is eronious.
    It is an excuse to avoid the physical confrontation that is necessary to stop this slide into the NWO socialist abyss.
    The Point of no return has been passed by years ago.
    Enjoy the useless complaining of other fools like me who realize this and are to old to physically pull off the revolution to Constitutional restoration.
    Yes talk ‘talk’ is cheap, but that is what is left to us.

  23. 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 and Republican have been deluded into see the Presidential candidates as ‘Conservative’; when it is far from the truth. The presceived view of conservative has changed drastically from what it was decades ago. Now conservatism is that which is less liberal than a Democrat.
    I n which case liberal Republicans like Romney, Gingrich, and Santorum are lauded as true conservatives. Go figure.
    Now you have liberal and tainted Republicans through 40 years of progressive liberalism through the liberal controlled educational system in the USA.
    I am 63 and I have to constantly check myself for that which is fact and not the programmed educational liberalism I was taught to believe in Southern California.
    I have had to read the Constitution over and over sentence by sentence to get my head straight from a knee jerk reaction that is unconstitutional. And have taken also a few classes on the Constitution.
    So when I see or talk to another; no mater how ‘conservative’ he or she says they are, I have to do double takes to make sure we are on the same page.
    Now, as far as physical confrontation matter. I do understand very well what the cost is in this matter.
    As the Bible says:
    Blessed are the peace makers.
    We should live peaceably with all men ( humanity) if possible.
    It is the phrase if possible that seems to be where we are Biblically and Constitutionally today that is the problem.

    • 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 better than BO…
      If the ballot box doesn’t work and we must resort to arms to refresh the tree of liberty, then we will do so, are you in or out Mike…
      I am in and am willing to die to save America for my progeny are you…

  24. I suppose this is coming from someone who watches from the sidelines and obviously is neive.
    I spent most of my life on the front lines of the battle to fight against what we have arrived at in the last number of years, so I have at least some concept of what is going on.
    Then again it would be useless babble to such a one of your high intellect.

  25. Dr. Eowyn,
    I have left my email adress for them, but no takers as yet.

  26. Kheta,
    I am in, and always will be if it comes to that.

  27. Steve,
    I am sorry, take two aspirin, and mail your money to your doctor.

    • Steve,
      I like your spirit,and don’t give it up.
      I. Doubt we are close to the same age?
      My older grand children are being trained to take up the gauntlet.
      Things change when you have a lifetime of contending against the enemy, losing more than you win, and I do not like loosing.
      I still rattle their cages, sometimes shaming some into action.
      I am sure we are not as far apart on some things as you might think.
      I am not up on this blog thing and how it works.
      I do most of my communications by email or in meeting I talk at and attend here I SC.
      To Know who I am and what I do as a fighter even at 63, look me up on face book. Contat me.
      If you are in some other state, I could get you in touch with my Intel-Network of movers and shakers.

  28. Yo KhetaAmenti —
    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.

  29. Kheta,
    The Tea Party,
    I was there in its infancy supporting and helping put on a couple in the Southeast and my nephew helped in Arizona.
    Yeah, I have been in this fight for our Constitution for 40 years and in some cases in California got our tail kicked. But se la vie.
    Now in SC its a little better.

  30. I hope judge Mahili got enough Mony to retire and go live in Cuba, Aruba, Venzuala or maybe south Africa He Would be welcome there

  31. Got word from Carl Swensson, one of the plaintiffs. Georgia’s Secretary of State Brian Kemp is siding with the judge, Malihi. The betrayal is complete.

  32. 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 the last presidential elections; and, it would appear that all one needs to do to beat a rap is to just refuse go to court. This takes “civil disobedience” to a whole new level.
