Georgia Judge Orders President Obama To Appear In Court To Defend Citizenship

And the birthers just refuse to go away. Ever since President Obama embarrassed the hell out of birther king Donald Trump by releasing his long form birth certificate, birthers have been desperate to keep their claims alive and have filed lawsuits across the country to have the President removed from the ballot in 2012. All of these filings have failed, that is until now.

A judge in Atlanta, Georgia has ordered President Obama to show up at a hearing concerning a complaint filed by a citizen of the state who contends that Mr. Obama is not a natural-born citizen and therefore should be removed from the ballot in the Georgia Presidential primary.

On Friday, Deputy Chief Judge Michael Malihi denied a motion for dismissal of a subpoena that requires the President to attend. The hearing is set for Thursday.

This is clearly a frivolous lawsuit brought by a racist fool who happened to find an equally racist judge. The President was born in Hawaii and he has released his short form and long from birth certificates. President Obama has better things to do than appear before a hack judge in the hack state of Georgia, like finding and killing terrorists and fixing the economy. That being said, President Obama should appear, bring his birth certificates and any other documentation he can find, win the case, and then sue the person who filed this lawsuit. This racist hick should be forced to pay all the legal fees, attorneyís fees, and should be forced to repay the taxpayers all the money it takes for the President to fly on Air Force One with a security detail to Georgia, not to mention all of the security precautions necessary to protect the President en route to the courthouse and inside the courtroom. Thatís going to cost a LOT. And if this moron refuses to pay up, the IRS should garnish his wages and seize his belongings, property, etc. Thatís the only way to deter other racist birthers from continuing to file lawsuits. More on this story as it develops.

..."if necessary, hold the president in contempt, "

Deputy Chief Judge Michael Malihi issued the decision after previously declining to dismiss the case, one of dozens around the country brought by so-called “birthers.” Malihi, appointed in 1995 by Gov. Zell Miller, presides at the Georgia Office of State Administrative Hearings, which hears complaints against state agencies.

Last year, eight people filed challenges to Obama’s citizenship with the Georgia Secretary of State’s office, which administers elections. The agency referred the dispute to the administrative hearing office as required by law, an office spokesman said Monday.

Lawyers for those pursuing the challenges recently issued a subpoena for Obama to attend the upcoming hearing. Obama’s legal team filed a motion to quash the subpoena, but Malihi declined. In his order, Malihi noted that Obama’s legal team had argued that no president should be compelled to attend a court hearing.

“This may be correct,” Malihi wrote. “But [Obama] has failed to enlighten the court with any legal authority.”

Obama’s court filings fail to show why his attendance would be “unreasonable or oppressive” or why his testimony would be “irrelevant, immaterial or cumulative,” the judge wrote.

The White House on Monday referred questions to Obama’s reelection campaign, which had no public comment.

“It’s a major victory,” said Orly Taitz, a California lawyer who represents five of the people who filed challenges.

Taitz, who is also a dentist, is a leading proponent of challenges to Obama’s citizenship. Last year Obama released a long-form birth certificate showing he was born in Hawaii. Taitz said Monday she considers it a “cheap, computer-generated forgery.”

Marietta lawyer Melvin Goldstein, who is not involved in the case, said if the hearing goes on as scheduled without Obama, Malihi could refer the matter to a Fulton County Superior Court judge. It would be up to that judge to decide whether to enforce the subpoena and, if necessary, hold the president in contempt, Goldstein said.

Georgia is a prime example of trying to make the people 'afraid of government' in order to become that fearful government in the name of anti-government.

(Heh, I'll just offer the luck of my 11,111th post to our very civic-minded patron Goddess, on that score. )

The White House appears prepared to ignore a recent ruling by Georgia Deputy Chief Judge Michael Malihi that would require President Obama to attend a birther hearing in Fulton County, Ga., on Thursday.

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney outlined Barack Obama's weekly agenda on Monday, noting that the president is scheduled to hit Las Vegas, Denver and Detroit on Thursday in a whirlwind tour to talk middle class job creation.

That's not likely to sit well with Malihi, who last week rejected an effort by Obama's legal team to quash a subpoena that would require president appear in court that day. The complaint, like many others of its kind, claims Obama isn't a natural-born citizen and therefore can't be president.

ack, way to make Georgia look terrible. its bad enough georgia votes in the presidential election are basically meaningless, we don't need to ad insult to injury... to ourselves, by doing things like this. all thats going to do is give the north and ignorant folks more fuel for the 'racist south' idea. its hard to stand up in defense of what is right, when your state does such stupid things. lets face it, some people, especially here in the south, hate obama precisely because he's a black man. and pretty much only because he's a black man. if he were white and called himself a conservative, he'd be hailed as the greatest thing since Regan. man, this country never fails to make me ashamed.
