US court challenges Obama's presidency


A US court has tossed out a lawsuit challenging President Barack Hussein Obama's US citizenship and his eligibility to serve as president.

After nearly a full-term in office, US President Barack Obama's eligibility for presidency is being challenged as an Atlanta court has summoned him.

A Georgia judge has ordered President Obama to appear in court on Thursday for a hearing on a complaint that says Obama cannot be president as he is not a natural-born US citizen. It is, however, unclear whether a court could force a sitting president to appear in court.

California attorney Orly Taitz has filed the lawsuit which is challenging the presence of Obama's name on the March presidential primary ballot.

Taitz says she has been working on the case over the last three years.

“This will be 100 times bigger than Watergate,” she said referring to the 1970s political scandal that brought down former US President Richard Nixon adding, “There are high ranking judges and federal officials who are involved in this cover up. The ramifications of this trial will be enormous.”

Although Taitz said that she knew the president's legal team would fight his appearance in the Georgia court, she went on to say that, “If he [Obama] is appealing this decision, then he looks guilty. The whole nation understands this man is a fraud.”

Taitz's lawsuit is one of many such lawsuits filed nationwide against the president. Yet Obama campaign officials say such claims have no merit.

The Georgia judge has denied a motion by Obama's lawyer to nullify a subpoena that requires Obama to show up.

The allegations against Obama come as primaries and caucuses are scheduled to be held over the next few months in every US state to vote on the Republican Party competitors before a final nominee is elected at the party convention in August to challenge President Obama in the 2012 elections.

  1. That is not an accurate report.

    Here is what really happened. The lawyer for some of the plaintiffs in the case, Orly Taitz, got a blank subpoena form signed by Judge Malihi from a state web site and has it served on Obama’s attorney. The situation is that although the judge has so far refused defense motions to quash the subpoena, he has NOT issued any order for Obama to appear, and in fact he cannot issue such an order.

    Why not? Because in Georgia, an administrative law judge does not have the authority to compel testimony. That requires an order from the state Superior Court.

  4. The president did not show up, and the judge did not say a word about it.

  5. The judge has asked the lawyers to file briefs by Feb 5th after which he will make a ruling after that.

  6. The judge has now made his ruling. He found for Obama, saying that the birthers had not proven that Obama was born outside of the USA and that he believes that every US citizen who was born in the USA is a Natural Born US Citizen.

  7. The proof is available to download…Please share it and get informed! The US Government has threatened the judge in the case. Even though there is now an appeal in process, the information was admitted into evidence and can be picked up by anyone in any State to charge Obama. This is not over by a long shot!

  8. Orly Taitz CLAIMED that the US government threatened the judge, but the judge did not say so, nor is there any confirmation at all.

    Birthers have the right to appeal, and appeal and appeal, and they will lose and lose and lose.
