Attorneys who argued in a Georgia court this week that Barack Obama isn’t eligible to be president say Administrative Law Judge Michael Malihi considered granting a default judgment before they even argued the case.
That presumably could have recommended that Obama failed to prove his eligibility and therefore should not be on the 2012 ballot, since he and his lawyer snubbed the hearing, for which Obama was subpoenaed.But the attorneys argued against such an easy victory on the point of the single hearing, expressing instead their desire to get the evidence concerning Obama’s eligibility or lack of it in the record, so that it would be there should the case elevate to an appellate level.The attorneys also said the strategy decision by Obama to simply ignore the subpoena and the hearing may ultimately backfire, because judges typically aren’t pleased to listen to arguments from someone who wants to introduce evidence during an appeal.
“The judge … was considering just entering a default judgment against Obama,” Hatfield said today. “The plaintiffs’ attorneys uniformly did not want the judge to do that because there wouldn’t be any evidence in the record at all.”

(“Clyde Wilson [send him mail] is a recovering professor. Now that he is no longer a professor of history he can at last be a real historian.”) ~ The Founding Fathers’ Guide to the Constitution by Clyde Wilson
…..James Madison is reputed by those who don’t know any better to be the “Father of the Constitution.” In fact, Madison lost more votes than he won at Philadelphia, although he did more maneuvering and scribbling than any other delegate.
In his almost half-century of post-ratification life Madison was all over the place, contradicting himself numerous times on constitutional interpretation.
But Madison himself in one of his more lucid moments tells us where we should look for the meaning of the Constitution.
The meaning of the Constitution, he avowed, is to be found in the understanding of those who ratified it, who alone gave what was merely a proposal all the authority it possesses.
So we must look for understanding at the discussions that preceded the ratification conventions and at the conventions themselves. McClanahan knows this ground thoroughly and tells us in convincing chapter and verse on each article what those who ratified the Constitution intended and, perhaps more importantly, what they did not intend.
The opponents of the Constitution feared that the document would prove an instrument for the incremental establishment of a centralized dictatorship over the people.
They were right. But, as McClanahan makes clear, the proponents of the Constitution swore point by point that the powers granted were limited and no cause for alarm. These assurances persuaded some of the doubtful.
Ratification would never have passed otherwise, and, as it was, it only passed with assurances that amendments would be swiftly adopted and with several States making it clear that their ratification was revocable.So in interpretation we ought to be guided by what the proponents of the Constitution plainly said it intended. This is what McClanahan elucidates point by point. If we accept what its proponents said, then those who ratified it believed that it established a limited federal power.
Third-string “political philosophers” and “Constitutional scholars,” and even learned jurists, have made an icon out of The Federalist, but it is only one of many discussions of the Constitution. It was a partisan document designed to overcome the objections of New York, and was not very convincing to its audience since ratification passed in New York by the narrowest possible margin Furthermore, it discusses the Constitution as it was merely a proposal under consideration and not the Constitution as ratified by the people of the States, who made their intentions clear in the undisputable language of the 10th Amendment.
The authors – Madison, Hamilton, and Jay – were all disappointed that the Constitution did not centralize power as much as they would have liked, yet realized what they had to say to win over the majority. On the part of Alexander Hamilton, contributions to The Federalist were outright dishonest, because once he got into power he worked to do all sorts of things that he claimed the Constitution did not authorize.The Federalist, which we see cited all the time as the key to the Constitution is speculation and was never ratified by anybody.
Nixon at least respected the judicial branch enough to have his attorney’s show up in court and follow procedure. Nixon’s fight in the courts followed existing law. Nixon acknowledged the authority of the judicial branch even while he fought it.
Obama, on the other hand, essentially said yesterday that the judicial branch has no power over him. He ordered his attorneys to stay away from the hearing. He didn’t petition a higher court in a legitimate attempt to stay the hearing.
Instead he showed complete contempt for the entire judicial branch and for the rule of law. Rather than respecting the legal process, Obama went around the courts and tried to put political pressure directly on the Georgia Secretary of State.
When that failed, he simply ignored the judicial branch completely.
The idea may seem a bit out of place in a campaign that has been overwhelmingly focused on the more terrestrial concerns of a struggling U.S. economy, but it isn’t actually that novel a concept.
NASA had plans for the construction of a moon base during the George W. Bush presidency which have since been scrapped. China, Japan, and Russia all have moon base plans at various stages of development.
But beyond nationalist bravado, pure scientific research, or the fun of space tourism, is there any reason for people to be on the moon? Is there anything we want there? Gingrich himself proposed one idea in a recent presidential debate. Moon mining:…..
you are not your brother’s keeper.
Rather, your primary purpose is to the live the best life that you possibly can. This means being your own master and living on YOUR terms. You will be the most successful when you are the freest to pursue your goals and dreams. Unfortunately, this important debate is all but ignored during most political campaigns. Until we address this threshold issue, not much human progress will be made
As Dr. Brook puts it, all statistics and collectivists assume your purpose on Earth is to care for your brothers in need, whether you want to or not.
His campaign’s decision to bypass Florida has virtually guaranteed that Paul will stay out of the news cycle, at least until the state’s primary election on Jan. 31.
After tonight’s debate in Jacksonville, the candidate plans to spend the weekend campaigning in Maine — not exactly a hotbed of political activity these days.
As crazy as it seems, Paul’s schedule is actually very strategic. Senior advisors for the campaign say that they remain focused on picking up as many delegates as possible — and that means allocating its resources efficiently.
In a recent interview with Business Insider, Paul’s campaign manager John Tate pointed out that there is no benefit to spending precious time and money in Florida, where Paul is polling in the single-digits. The expensive winner-take-all state lost half of its delegates by moving up its primary up to January; even if the state is forced to divide its delegates proportionally, by Congressional district, there is little chance that Paul will win any district outright.
“It’s just so expensive, and we figure, spending $9-$12 million in ads might not be worth it,” Tate said. “We’re spending our money more wisely….Spending half a million dollars to win all of North Dakota’s delegates is a lot more efficient than spending $12 million to maybe win some of Florida’s delegates.”
One of the attorneys who argued before a Georgia judge today that Barack Obama is ineligible to have his name on the state’s 2012 presidential ballot says the president’s decision to snub the court system and ignore the hearing is a dangerous precedent that threatens the foundation of the United States.
“We have a president who has openly refused to comply with a legal order of the judicial branch,” Van Irion told WND after today’s hearing before Administrative Law Judge Michael Malihi concluded in Atlanta.
Malihi’s recommendation on the issue, whether Obama’s name should be on the ballot or not, is expected later and eventually will end up before state Secretary of State Brian Kemp.

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.georgia obama eligibility What Really Happened in a Georgia Courtroom on January 26, 2012?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.

Instead, they sent a letter to Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp suggesting the judge was letting attorneys “run amok.”In response, Kemp warned Obama and his counsel that if they chose not to participate in the proceedings, “you do so at your own peril.”Excerpt Read more at alerts.worldnetdaily.com …

Soledad O’Brien would not brand Saul Alinsky as a leftist radical, and neither would she say President Obama was influenced by his writings – but she had no problem tying Alinsky’s controversial beliefs to the Tea Party movement on Monday’s Starting Line.As a community organizer in Chicago, Barack Obama mirrored the tactics Alinsky laid out in his book “Rules for Radicals” – which featured a tribute to the devil Lucifer, “the very first radical.” GOP candidate Newt Gingrich has recently tied Obama’s name with Alinsky, sparking a media debate over the matter.
O’Brien wanted to set the story straight on Monday, and delivered a neutral take on the controversial community organizer. “He spent his life helping minorities in poor neighborhoods exert their political force by organizing them to get to the polls,” she stated.And O’Brien’s soft take echoes the coverage by her network.

(“The Purchase of A Presidential Candidate”) ~ Adelson, Gingrich, and the Selling of America by Justin Raimondo
If you want to know what’s wrong with our campaign finance laws – and our political system in a more general sense – look at the way Sheldon Adelson is buying the Republican nomination for his sock puppet, Newt Gingrich
.Right now, the anonymous donors to a political action committee, or PAC, can buy ads on behalf of – or against – a candidate, and spend unlimited amounts as long as there is no official connection between the PAC and any candidate. This degree of separation, however, is pure fiction: in reality, “former” aides to the candidate can and do operate these “Super PACs,” which are funded by one Daddy Warbucks or another: no overt coordination is necessary. What’s important here is disclosure, or the lack of it: the PACs don’t have to say who is funding these ads, only that the “Committee for Good Government” or some such semi-fictional entity is paying for it. In this way, Adelson – a casino billionaire, one of the richest people in the country – can drop a cool $10 million into the race with more in the pipeline and in effect buy the election, without the average voter knowing who is paying the bills.

Many questioned what was going on Wednesday night as a Black Hawk helicopter and four OH-6 choppers – or “Little Birds” – flew over the city, at one point hovering just above the US Bank building downtown and later flying low over the Staples Center as the Lakers played inside.Someone could be seen sitting inside an open chopper with his legs hanging off the side.Sky9 spotted the Black Hawk in the dark, making what appeared to be a drop off at a park before quickly ascending back into the air.Throughout the exercise, the five rotorcrafts were staged at Dodgers Stadium.
The Dirty “little” Secret Of The Natural Born Citizen Clause Revealed.
I have emphasized the word “little” because the truth of the law on this issue is very simple, folks. So simple that the mystery is deciphered by application of one of the most clear, concise and undeniable rules of law; the code of statutory construction governs, and therefore, “natural born Citizen” must require something more than being born in the United States.
Let me put it to you in appropriately simple language:
FEMA CAMPS EXPOSED: Alex presents newly exposed footage filmed at LAX airport in Los Angeles confirming a ‘rendition hub’ capable of processing thousands of people per hour from straight off the tarmac and other transportation points.
President Obama’s state of the union address lacked any clear explanation of how his Administration will eliminate the national debt, reduce unemployment, and promote economic growth and prosperity. In typical Chicago style political fashion, he presented a patchwork quilt of promises aimed at specific constituencies needed for him to achieve re-election (veterans, small business owners, taxpayers earning less than $200,000 a year, and public employees), and included a gross omission: not one word on how he would balance the budget and save the nation from economic collapse.
More fundamentally, Obama’s speech revealed that this President remains out of touch with the very problems he promised to overcome in 2008. He remains hopelessly wedded to government planned economies replete with government selected winners and losers.
It is a cliché to speak of “spineless Republicans”-google spineless republicans and you will see.
They talk “conservative” when they campaign; but once in office, they go along with the progressive agenda. That agenda is to grow the federal government until it controls every aspect of our lives.
Why don’t they oppose the progressive agenda?
But on this, our Rush is wrong. Rush is a man of Principles; but he doesn’t understand the Constitution. So he doesn’t see that the spineless ones also don’t understand it; and that their failure to oppose the progressives stems from their lack of any Standard to guide them.
However, his description was hypothetical and purportedly unlikely. Madison paints a picture of what the union would look like under healthy conditions and then contrasts that with terminal conditions that would destroy the union. His portrayal is fascinating and worth applying today.In Federalist Paper 46, Madison discusses the happy and healthy situation where the Federal and State governments respect their constitutional boundaries.
Madison says, “[the federal government will] be disinclined to invade the rights of the individual States, or the prerogatives of their governments”. Congress would be the “guardians of a common interest” and would not make “improper sacrifices…of local considerations, to the aggrandizement of the federal government”.
A disturbing report prepared by the Ministry of Defense circulating in the Kremlin today states that Russian Military Officials were rebuffed by NATO yesterday after questions were raised regarding massive troop and war equipment movements in the United States region of California and said to involve over 78,000 soldiers from various countries.

A participant on this thread brought to my attention that Newt Gingrich has directly addressed the Agenda 21 issue.
I have viewed the following brief clip of his comments and offer it here for you to look at and consider for yourselves.
Months before websites all over the internet voluntarily went dark
in protest of SOPA, the internet censorship bill which was being
considered by congress, Obama signed onto the Anti-Counterfeiting
He did so way back in October of last year using his claimed
authority to make ‘executive agreements‘, which basically means he
doesn’t intend to, or even believe he needs to, get the congress to
ratify this TREATY.
Yesterday the European Union signed onto ACTA without any debate.
ACTA has become a reality far worse for internet freedom than
either SOPA or PIPA ever even threatened to be.
Here’s what you really need to know about ACTA…
YES HE CAN !!!!!
(“Court says he fears that even if the U.S. Supreme Court declared Obama unqualified, he’d simply ignore the ruling and continue issuing orders.”) accused of disrespecting court, state, Americans
One of the attorneys who fought a court case over Barack Obama’s eligibility to be president all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court says he fears that even if the U.S. Supreme Court declared Obama unqualified, he’d simply ignore the ruling and continue issuing orders.
But those who observed a court hearing today in Atlanta say it could be the beginning of the end for the Obama campaign, because of the doubt that could surge like a tidal wave across the nation.
The comments came today from Leo Donofrio, who led the pack in filing lawsuits over Obama’s 2008 election and his subsequent occupancy of the White House.
How does establishment media bias shape the theme of presidential elections?
Most veteran conservatives have long known that television personalities and major newspaper reporters give far more political donations to Democrats than Republicans, with almost no donations at all to genuine conservatives. The Washington Examiner reported in 2010 that, according to a Center for Responsive Politics survey about employees donations in 2008 at the three major news networks (ABC, NBC, and CBS), “The Democratic total of $1,020,816 was given by 1,160 employees’ of the three major broadcast television networks, with an average contribution of $880.

Obama Ratifies the ACTA Global Internet Censorship Agreement(W/O Senate)

In another example of how little Barack Obama cares about the United States Constitution and the role of Congress -as bad as it can be- the current U.S. president ratified the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement or ACTA. President Obama had signed the first binding draft of ACTA last October 1, 2011, also in secret.
As we reported yesterday, ACTA is much more dangerous than SOPA, PIPA or OPEN, because it is the accord that legalizes internet censorship on a global basis.
Secretary of State warns Obama – miss hearing “at your own peril”
Paul Joseph Watson
Friday, January 27, 2012
President Barack Obama was accused by prosecution lawyers of being in contempt of court after failing to show up for a ‘birther’ hearing in Georgia that seeks to establish whether he is eligible to appear on the state ballot in November.
As we reported earlier this month, so-called ‘birthers,’ those who claim there is evidence to suggest Obama was not born in the United States, hailed a judges decision to hear the case as a potential roadblock to Obama even being permitted to run for a second term in the White House.
“Lawyers for area residents mounting “birther” challenges told Deputy Chief Judge Michael Malihi that Obama should be found in contempt of court for not appearing when under subpoena to do so. But Malihi did not indicate he would recommend that and cut off one lawyer when he criticized Obama for not attending the hearing,” reports the Atlanta-Journal Constitution.
“It shows not just a contempt for this court, but contempt for the judicial branch,” lawyer Van Irion told Malihi.
Earlier this week, Obama’s lawyer, Michael Jablonski, requested that Secretary of State Brian Kemp suspend the hearing, claiming it was not a legitimate issue and insisting he and his client would boycott the hearing. However, Kemp fired back, warning that the hearing was necessary under Georgia law and that Obama and Jablonski’s failure to participate would be “at your own peril.”
The federal constitution ratified by the people of the States provided for a limited government to handle specified joint affairs of the States. The document describes itself not as “the U.S. Constitution” or the “Constitution of the United States,” but as a “Constitution FOR the United States of America.” With this in mind, read what follows in the preamble as the purposes of this instrument: “forming a more perfect Union,” “common defense,” and “general welfare.” Throughout the document “United States” is a plural (the States United) and treason against the United States consists of levying war against THEM.
As clear and simple as these facts are and have always been, grasping them seems to be beyond the abilities of presidents, congresspersons, supreme court justices, and professors of “Constitutional Law” at the most prestigious institutions.

Obama’s Vision for a Spartan America
Townhall.com ^ | January 27, 2012 | Jonah Goldberg
Posted on Friday, January 27, 2012 7:16:12 AM by Kaslin
The president began with a moving tribute to the armed forces and their accomplishments. But as he has done many times now, he celebrated martial virtues not to rally support for the military, but to cover himself in glory — he killed Osama bin Laden! — and to convince the American people that they should fall in line and march in lockstep.
He said of the military: “At a time when too many of our institutions have let us down, they exceed all expectations. They’re not consumed with personal ambition. They don’t obsess over their differences. They focus on the mission at hand. They work together. Imagine what we could accomplish if we followed their example. Think about the America within our reach.”
That is disgusting.
What Obama is saying, quite plainly, is that America would be better off if it wasn’t America any longer. He’s making the case not for American exceptionalism, but Spartan exceptionalism.
It’s far worse than anything George W. Bush, the supposed warmonger, ever said. Bush, the alleged fascist, didn’t want to militarize our free country; he tried to use our military to make militarized countries free.

For more than two years, the Michigan Education Association has had a manual that urges its members to use students as propaganda in contract negotiations and also lays out how to organize strikes, which are illegal in Michigan.
A 28-page manual, “Building Full Capacity Locals — Crisis Planning, It’s Never Too Early To Start!” has one section that reads: “Strikes: Aren’t They Illegal?” and follows with a civil disobedience quote from Mahatma Gandhi. The manual appears to have been created in July of 2009.
“What’s really troubling about this publication isn’t what’s inside, it’s right there on the cover. This organization has decided it is above the law that has empowered them so much in so many other ways,” said Paul Kersey, director of labor policy at the Mackinac Center for Public Policy, in an email. “We have given them the authority to represent employees who individually may not support them, and to collect dues and agency fees from them and have them fired if they refuse. But the union does not feel it is bound by the law’s prohibition of government strikes.”
The manual states that the “MEA … supports and defends its members who engage in a strike.” It also says that not all job actions are strikes. It offers advice on how to pull off “Work-To-Rule” actions where employees refuse to do anything outside of what is included in their contract.
“Understand that a local is limited only by its collective imagination when it comes to specific work-to-rule actions,” the manual states. “If you carefully examine your contract you will probably find a number of work-to-rule opportunities. Keep in mind, however, that you don’t want to violate the contract or past practice; you want to adhere to it … exactly!”
Doug Pratt, spokesman for the MEA, didn’t respond to an email seeking comment.
One section of the manual appears to quote almost verbatim Saul Alinsky’s “Rules For Radicals” — a handbook for community organizing. Alinsky’s book includes: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.”
