Wednesday, January 25, 2012 was the longest day I would never want to re-live but feel it necessary to document for posterity. The day had its ups and downs and ins and outs and Article II, Section 1.5 Constitutionalist, also known as “birthers,” “racists,” “wing-nuts” and “fringe” were holding our collective breaths and praying like never before.
The day actually began much earlier when, for the first time in over three years, a judge had agreed to hear a lawsuit that would require Barack Obama, leader of the free world and most powerful man on earth, to appear in a Georgia courtroom. This time it was not a federal case as in many challenges brought by attorney Orly Taitz and others, but instead, an administrative judge for the state of Georgia would hear the case. Judge Michael Malihi scheduled the hearing and issued subpoenas. Obama’s Atlanta lawyer, Michael Jablonski, quickly issued a Motion to Dismiss. Of course we expected this. Obama’s dream team of Perkins Coie and his stable of attorneys across the United States and under the auspices of Eric Holder’s DOJ and Elena Kagan, Obama’s pre-election counsel and now sitting Supreme Court Justice would come down on Orly Taitz like an iron fist. But on January 3, their Motion to Dismiss was DENIED.
This was big. Would we really have our day in court? It was almost too good to be true. Dozens of lawsuits over Obama’s eligibility had been dismissed for “lack of standing,” “wrong jurisdiction” or “procedural errors.” But this time a judge actually moved our case forward because he read the Georgia law correctly in that it explicitly gives Georgia residents the right to challenge candidates wanting to be on the state ballot.
We blogged, we called, we emailed and got the word out to as many people as we could. We anxiously monitored the mainstream news but again, nothing except a small mention on FOX Brett Baier’s “Grapevine,” where he tossed in the “birther” epithet meant to discredit us. We were used to that. The lawsuit moved forward.
Obama’s lawyer, Jablonski, spoke to reporters saying the lawsuit would be dismissed just as every challenge has been defeated and Obama would not be going to Georgia. Of course the traditional media carried his story to the ends of the earth. But we moved on Orly would line up her witnesses and arrange to pay their way to Georgia. We had Susan Daniels who discovered Obama’s stolen identity in a CT social security number and experts on Adobe and a former INS agent. All these witnesses had overwhelming evidence of fraud and forgery. The copy of Obama’s birth certificate posted on the White House website confirmed that Obama is not natural born as required in the Constitution. Early on Wednesday, we learned that Leo Donofrio, renown authority on the Constitution and federalist papers, had filed a 200 page Amicus (friend of the court) Brief which joined the documented evidence irrefutably proving that Obama is not a natural-born Citizen and even his status of “native born Citizen” is questionable because of the suspected birth document forgery.
Within hours, Orly Taitz and the attorneys for the plaintiffs in two other lawsuits that had been consolidated were copied on a letter from Obama’s Atlanta attorney, Jablonski. The letter was sent to Georgia Secretary of State, Brian P. Kemp to stop the hearing. It came at approximately 3:00pm but by five o’clock, SOS Kemp responded to Jablonski rejecting the request and stated it would not be judicious given the hearing is set for the next morning. He added, “…if you and your client choose to suspend your participation in the OSAH proceedings, please understand that you do so at your own peril.”
About the same time I was working diligently to get the latest news out to my contacts including posting the information on Facebook, I got a comment and link to Leo Donofrio’s naturalborncitizen blog. The news was stunning. Leo was alerted to information in the government’s own INS/ICE handbook delineating a distinct difference in “natural-born citizen” and “native-born” citizen. I scrambled. Did my Birther Summit team know about this? I painstakingly emailed the information to my 500 or so contacts and posted on Facebook. It was too let to get it into the court records but it didn’t matter. Our case was air-tight as it was.
It had been a long day and I began receiving emails from friends and supporters saying they would look for me in the live-stream video provided by The Birther Summit and Art2superPAC sites. I didn’t have the energy to tell them I wasn’t going to Atlanta. I could not afford to go but it was nice so many people really thought I would be there. This is what we all worked so hard for.
There was so much traffic on the live video feeds and many of us had long periods of blackouts but I did see Orly and the other attorneys leave to go with the judge to his chambers. What really happened yesterday was the judge decided to award a DEFAULT JUDGEMENT to the plaintiff’s since the defendant didn’t show up. But an abbreviated hearing took place. The first two cases were heard and Orly presented her witnesses and argued her case and the evidence all went into the record. We had our day in court.
