UPDATE AT END OF POST!
Citizen Wells blog reports that many concerned veterans and citizens attended the hearing today in Federal Court in Santa Ana in the lawsuit against Barack Obama to determine his eligibility to be President and Commander in Chief. About 150 people showed up, almost all in support of the lawsuit to demand that Obama release his birth certificate and other records that he has hidden from the American people.
Judge David Carter refused to hear Obama’s request for dismissal today, instead setting a hearing date for Oct. 5, since Obama’s attorneys had just filed the motion on Friday. He indicated there was almost no chance that this case would be dismissed. Obama is arguing this lawsuit was filed in the wrong court if you can believe that. I guess Obama would prefer a “kangaroo court” instead of a Federal court. Assuming Judge Carter denies Obama’s motion for dismissal, he will likely then order expedited discovery which will force Obama to release his birth certificate in a timely manner.
The judge, who is a former U.S. Marine, repeated several times that this is a very serious case which must be resolved quickly so that the troops know that their Commander in Chief is eligible to hold that position and issue lawful orders to our military in this time of war. He basically said Obama must prove his eligibility to the court. He said Americans deserve to know the truth about Obama.
The two U.S. Attorneys representing Barack Obama tried everything they could to sway the judge that this case was frivolous, but Carter would have none of it and cut them off several times. Obama’s attorneys left the courtroom after the 90 minute hearing looking defeated and nervous.
Lucas Smith was at the hearing. He read his signed affidavit (at link) and presented what he says is Obama’s original Kenyan Certificate of Birth (at link).
Court records show that summonses were issued in the case of an Army captain seeking to stop her deployment by questioning the legitimacy of Barack Obama’s presidency.
Capt. Connie Rhodes claims Obama is “an illegal usurper” and “an unlawful pretender” and that she cannot lawfully act under his authority. Defendants include Obama, U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates and Thomas MacDonald, Fort Benning garrison commander. According to the summonses, the defendants have 20 days to answer the complaint once received; they have two months if they are an officer or employee of the federal government.
Great day in America for the U.S. Constitution. The truth about Barack Obama’s eligibility will be known fairly soon — Judge Carter practically guaranteed it!
Video from the press conference after the hearing coming soon. Congratulations to plaintiff’s attorney Dr. Orly Taitz. She did a great job and won some huge victories today. She was fearless.
The expedited trial has been set for Jan. 26, 2010, just 4 1/2 months from now.
Here’s Dr. Taitz’ video comments.
I have a real problem with Obama being represented by Department of Justice (DoJ) civil servants. I asked one attorney, and here’s what she had to say:
Well, to be honest, I’m not sure how the Department of Justice attorneys don’t have a conflict of interest.
While I do not completely understand it’s authority, my assumption is that the DoJ is similar to the States’ District Attorney’s Office; established to defend the Constitution and prosecute those charged with crimes against the United States and/or its People.
Sooooooo, isn’t it the DoJ who should be charged with the responsibility for bringing the claims of Obama’s ineligibility on our behalf as opposed to defending him??????

(Oct. 17, 2009) — In a stunning blow to the impartiality of the American Judicial system, Federal Judge David O. Carter, who is hearing the case Barnett vs. Obama, in the Central District, Southern Division Court at Santa Ana, California, has just hired a lawyer who works for a law firm where Robert F. Bauer, one of Obama’s top lawyers is a partner. And that, just days before the Oct. 5, 2009 hearing on the Motion to Dismiss, in which his demeanor radically changed, according to Dr. Orly Taitz, esq., lead counsel for the Plaintiffs.
Siddharth Velamoor is the lawyer chosen by Carter to serve as one of his two official clerks, from Oct. 1, 2009, till Sept. 30, 2010, according to Wikipedia. Velamoor is listed as an associate with Perkins Coie, LLP’s office in Seattle, Washington. It is not clear if he has broken his relations with the firm. Perkins Coie, LLP did represent Obama in a previous case litigated by Dr. Orly Taitz last winter. Velamoor is also listed as a clerk for Judge Carter in an official court document.
Robert F. Bauer, is a partner of Perkins Coie, LLP’s office in Washington, D.C.. His bio at the company identifies him as holding the Chair of the Political Law group at the firm; general counsel to Obama’s Campaign for America and general counsel to the Democratic National Committee.
Mr. Bauer’s wife is none other than Anita Dunn, the White House’s Communication’s Director.
Mr. Bauer, who represented Obama in a case challenging his eligibility in the spring, wrote a letter on April 3, threatening a citizen if he should continue to seek justice in the courts. You can read more about that case and letter here.
Since it appears that Siddharth Velamoor could be influenced by Perkins Coie, if the case did not go Obama’s way; his presence in Judge Carter’s chambers clearly impugns the integrity of the court, and will be the cause of dismay among the general public. Indeed since Velamoor will in the near future need a job reference from Perkins Coie, he will always have to be careful not to offend them politically.
“Therefore, for the reasons stated above, Defendants’ Motion to Dismiss is GRANTED. IT IS SO ORDERED. DATED: October 29, 2009″
It looks like the Judge has been had. He granted the motion to dismiss the suit against Obama, stating that over 69 million people wanted the Obamamessiah and he wouldn’t overthrow him. In saying so, he is also saying that The Constitution is no longer in effect — and he used a bogus Constitutional argument to do it.
“Plaintiffs request asking this Court to sweep away the votes of over sixty-nine million Americans with the stroke of a pen and order a new election during which the country would be in a state of turmoil, ignores the Constitution’s processes and separation of powers that were developed by the founders.”
What Carter said:
• It’s OK to ignore Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5 of the U. S. Constitution.
• Votes trump the U. S. Constitution.
• The U. S. Constitution does not allow the judicial branch to interfere in a coup d’etats.
Did Robert Bauer get appointed by Obama after successfully suppressing this lawsuit?
The lawsuit was dismissed 10/29/09; Robert Bauer, connected to Perkins Coie (also represented Obama in birther lawsuits and the DNC) was selected as the new White House counsel 11/13/09.
Coincidence? YOU decide.
