OBAMA BIRTH CERTIFICATE CASE GOES FORWARD–FOR NOW
Will those who challenge the eligibility of Barack Obama to serve as president finally get their day in court–to argue the case on its merits?
It’s looking more likely.
A federal judge in California today listened to government lawyers argue that a lawsuit over President Obama’s eligibility should be immediately dismissed but refused to grant their request, saying he would make his decision and announce it later.
The result came this morning from U.S. District Judge David Carter, who already has set a tentative trial date for the dispute Jan. 26, 2010. The judge also already had lawyers draw up a tentative schedule for hearings and deadlines in preparation for the trial.
Apparently, the strategy employed thus far by Obama’s lawyers and his allies in the Legacy Media didn’t work in Judge Carter’s courtroom. That would be to call the opposition “birthers” and argue that no one in the USA has standing to challenge the eligibility of Barack Obama–in lieu of simply presenting an Obama long form birth certificate.
So far, Obama’s lawyers have been successful in arguing in other cases that no one in the USA has “standing” to sue over Obama’s questions of eligibility.
Should the lawsuit proceed, it will be the first time the merits of the dispute have been heard in open court.
WND has reported on dozens of legal challenges to Obama’s status as a “natural born citizen.” The Constitution, Article 2, Section 1, states, “No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President.”
Why has Obama’s legal team spent so much money–in excess of $1 million and counting–to fight against producing a document that the average America has to pony up to get their driver’s license?
