Friday Nite Smackdown!!! – “Triple M” Hits Birthers With The Metal Folding Chair Of Truth!!!

As He Lay On The Mat, Mario "The Mangler" Apuzzo Pondered How He Could Spin This Loss

On Friday, February 3, 2012,  Administrative Law Judge Michael M. Malihi aka Triple M, clobbered the two-citizen parent Birthers with his decision in the Farrar, Welden, Swensson, & Powell v. Obama presidential eligibility suit. Here is the decision, from the Native and Natural Born Citizenship Explored blog, which is a very good place to get legal information on the Birther issues:

http://nativeborncitizen.wordpress.com/2012/02/04/ga-farrar-v-obama-the-verdict-is-in/

No real surprises to anybody who can read. Minor v. Happersett was properly NOT recognized as PRECEDENT for resolving the issue in language lifted straight from the Ankeny decision, stating:

The Minor Court left open the issue of whether a child born within the United States of alien parent(s) is a natural born citizen.

This finding left Leo “The Paraclete” Donofrio figuratively in the following position:

After His Signature Wrestling Move, The Minor Happersett Atomic Butt Buster, Proved A Dud, The Paraclete Foolishly Decided To Head-Butt The Metal Folding Chair

Relying mostly on the Ankeny v. Governor decision from 2009 and by extension, Wong Kim Ark from 1898, the Malihi Court pretty much told the two-citizen Birthers the same thing myself and others have been telling them for quite some time. To wit:

Relying on the language of the Constitution and the historical reviews and analyses of Minor and Wong Kim Ark, the Indiana Court concluded that persons born within the borders of the United States are “natural born citizens” for Article II, Section 1 purposes, regardless of the citizenship of their parents. Just as a person “born within the British dominions [was] a natural-born British subject” at the time of the framing of the U.S. Constitution, so too were those “born in the allegiance of the United States natural-born citizens.”

916 N.E.2d at 688. The Indiana Court determined that a person qualifies as a natural born citizen if he was born in the United States because he became a United States citizen at birth.

For the purposes of this analysis, this Court considered that President Barack Obama was born in the United States. Therefore, as discussed in Ankeny, he became a citizen at birth and is a natural born citizen. Accordingly,

CONCLUSION

President Barack Obama is eligible as a candidate for the presidential primary election under O.C.G.A. § 21-2-5(b).

SO ORDERED, February 2012.
MICHAEL M. MALIHI, Judge

Plaintiff David Farrar seemed to have accepted the loss with the most calmness and serenity of any of the Plaintiffs.

Meanwhile, the other plaintiffs, and most of the Birther “legal experts,” are exhibiting various degrees of oral frothing, ill-tempers, and paranoia.  To be on the safe side, I am reviewing and updating my Zombie Plan.

Tee Hee! Tee Hee!

Note 1:  The judge’s name is Michael M. Malihi.  Sooo, Triple M is a word-play on Triple H, a well known professional wrestler.

Note 2. Folding Chairs in Wrestling. Wiki says:

Many items are used as weapons in professional wrestling. Some of the more common weapons used include chairs, guitars, folding tables, title belts, “kendo sticks”, and trash cans. While picking up the upper half of the ring steps for use as a weapon is illegal, slamming an opponent into the ring steps is not considered illegal, though it is frowned upon. However, these weapons are legal in hardcore matches.

Chair shot

A wrestler simply hits the opponent with a chair. In modern wrestling steel/metal folding chairs are used with the strike being performed with the flat face of the chair to slow the swing and distribute the impact, to prevent injury.

    Re: FARRAR V OBAMA OSAH-SECSTATE-CE-1215136-60-MALHI

    Dear Sec. Kemp,

    Please allow me an opportunity to disassociate myself from any and all criminal allegations made by my attorney, Dr. Orly Taitz, against Judge Malihi in her EMERGENCY APPEAL motion now before you. They were not only unauthorized, but unsupported.

    In looking back over Judge Malihi’s recommendation, it seems apparent he may have erroneously combined the testimony and evidence submitted from all threes cases into one to arrive at his recommendation, when such is not the case. We do have a separation order signed by Judge Malihi just for that reason. We have different case numbers and we are three separate and distinct cases. This is the reason many leading jurists around the country are confused at just how the judge arrived at his recommendation given the evidence and testimony submitted, most notably, Mario Apuzzo, Esq. When he recently wrote:

    “But there is no evidence before the Court that Obama was born in the United States. The court can only rest its finding of fact on evidence that is part of the court record. The judge tells us that he decided the merits of the plaintiffs’ claims. But he does not tell us in his decision what evidence he relied upon to “consider[]” that Obama was born in the United States. The judge “considered” that Obama was born in the United States. What does “considered” mean? Clearly, it is not enough for a court to consider evidence or law. It must make a finding after having considered facts and law. The judge simply does not commit to any finding as to where Obama was born. Using the word “considered” is a cop out from actually addressing the issue. Additionally, we know from his decision that neither Obama nor his attorney appeared at the hearing let alone introduced any evidence of Obama’s place of birth. We also know from the decision that the judge ruled that plaintiffs’ documents introduced into evidence were “of little, if any, probative value, and thus wholly insufficient to support Plaintiff’s allegations.” Surely, the court did not use those “insufficient” documents as evidence of Obama’s place of birth. Nor does the judge tell us that he used those documents for any such purpose. The judge also does not tell us that the court took any judicial notice of any evidence (not to imply that it could). The judge did find that Obama has been certified by the state executive committee of a political party. But with the rules of evidence of superior court applying, this finding does not establish anyone’s place of birth. Hence, what evidence did the judge have to rule that Obama is born in the United States? The answer is none.”…Mario Apuzzo, Esq.

    For more click here, but the point is clear: somewhere Judge Malihi assumed that Dr. Taitz had allowed candidate Obama’s birth certificate to come into evidence in our case, when it did not, as it did in the other two cases. For this reason, you should set aside Judge Malihi’s recommendation and insist candidate Obama, at the very minimum, enter a certified copy of his Official Hawaiian birth certificate, with the embossed/impressed certification seal visible, into evidence in our case.

    I am sure, like Judge Malihi, Mr. Secretary, you do not condone the action of the defendant in this case. Part of the action undertaken by Mr. Jablonski, I am lead to believe, was an attempt to supply you with a copy of his client’s birth certificate on an ex parte basis, in a brazen attempt to enter this document into the court file without giving the Plaintiffs access to either the records this document was created from, nor an opportunity for the Plaintiffs to offer any rebuttal. If this is true, it would represent a patently unfair process and cause all our efforts to date for a fair hearing on the issue to be questioned. Such action, if true, only serves to demonstrate candidate Obama understood only too well the key element in this case was the submission of his birth certificate to judicial scrutiny. Without proper submission of this document into evidence, all our efforts to clearly establish candidate Obama’s presidential qualifications will have been in vain.

    The purpose of this lawsuit was simply to have candidate Obama’s birth certificate properly examined and reviewed in a court of law. Sadly, it seems, candidate Obama’s has been able to bamboozle your efforts in this regard if you accept the recommendation of Judge Malihi.

    My recommendation is to stand firm and insist candidate Obama’s name will be taken off the Georgia ballot until such time as he can properly submit a certified copy of his birth certificate for judicial review. This course of action will send a clear message to candidate Obama, and to anyone else who would so insult the conscience of a Georgia court in such a flagrant manner, that such action should be taken only at one’s own peril.

    Moreover, Mr. Secretary, the rest of the states are closely watching Georgia to see if it can preform this much needed function of vetting presidential and vice-presidential candidates at the state level rather than at the national level through the candidates own national political party.

    CONCLUSION

    Mr. Secretary, you, and by extension, the great State of Georgia, are at a unique point in election history where progress can be made, not to mention good law, with determined action on your part to insist candidate Barack Obama submit a certified copy of his Hawaiian birth certificate to the court, as a minimum requirement for placing his name on Georgia’s Presidential Preference Primary ballot.

      • HistorianDude

        I am curious. What would make you imagine that separating the cases makes evidence that has been submitted in one case suddenly disappear in another? The court knows the law, and the court may take judicial notice of anything that is judicially noticeable, to include evidence presented elsewhere.

        This is not a high school debate. A judge does not award a “win” to the best rhetoric. A judge rules in conformance with the law.

  • Reality Check

    David Farrar seems to be under the same mistaken impression that Mario holds that the ALJ had to decide the cases independently. The OSAH web site always showed them as a single case and Judge Malihi came to one recommendation based on the evidence from the hearing and other case materials. Even his own attorney introduced a copy of the birth certificate then paraded up a crew of discredited amateurs who failed to impeach the authenticity of it.

    Also does he realize that Vince Russo as a law student helped author an article together with his professor at Emery University that directly contradicts the the two parent citizen definition of natural born citizen? I hate to be the party pooper. Well, actually, I don’t.

    • David Farrar

      Reality Check,

      Yes, we all were under that impression, according to the motion to separate our three cases indicates.

      I think what happen was whoever wrote Judge Malihi’s decision for him was unaware that a separation order had been previously granted. But that’s just me.

    I wonder where David got the idea that the Georgia law requires a candidate to satisfy the curiosity of Georgia voters?

    I wonder where David got the idea that Georgia law requires a candidate to submit documentary evidence in an administrative hearing in order to give objectors a chance to review the materials?

    I wonder where David got the idea that Georgia law requires a candidate to submit documentary evidence for “judicial scrutiny.”

    I wonder where David got the idea that, under Georgia law, that the SOS cannot consider documentary evidence submitted by a candidate, even if the evidence was not submitted in the context of an administrative hearing?

    ??Anyone have a citation to authority for these positions David’s now taking?? I can’t seem to find them ………………….

        Were that true David, I would have expected you to answer Tes’s questions. But as that response stands, it looks pretty much like a dodge.

  • Doubtful

    David seems to be under the impression that we are playing a sort of game, and that the judge can rule that Pres. Obama has a birth certificate for the purposes of rounds one and two of the game but doesn’t have one for round three.

    This is not a game. It is a search for the truth. If the judge is convinced that there is a birth certificate and that it deserves the legal deference which is normally due official state documents, that is simply a fact that cannot be true concerning one complaint and false concerning another.

    • David Farrar

      Doubtful,

      I certainly agree with your assertion that this is not a game, and that this is a search for the truth. And I agree, “If the judge is convinced that there is a birth certificate”…once that document has been properly introduced into evidence.

      The point that you are missing is that we were quite prepared to address the “legal deference” normally due “official state” documents, as Defendant Obama, and his attorney, well knew, which is why we were never given the opportunity to address that issue in the normal course of moving a certified birth certificate into evidence. Instead, Defendant Obama chose to try and enter this document behind our back and was soundly dealt with by Sec. Kemp, if not the Malihi court.

      Your last point is quite wrong in your belief that what is not true in one complaint can somehow be true in other complaint.

        David: “Your last point is quite wrong in your belief that what is not true in one complaint can somehow be true in other complaint.”

        You do agree, don’t you, that Malihi was required to give Kemp a single recommendation based on whether or not he found Obama to be eligible for office?

        What did you expect him to say — that he knows that Obama’s father wasn’t a citizen because he has a reliable BC that says so, but he doesn’t know where Obama was born because there’s no reliable BC to tell him that?

    • David Farrar

      Doubtful

      I would have expected him to recommend candidate Obama’s name should remain off the Georgia ballot until he places his birth certificate into evidence.

      In the other two cases, since they stipulated to candidate’s Obama’s birth certificate, that issue wasn’t before the judge.

    If I were Brian Kemp I would ignore your letter after reading the first paragraph because although you dissociate yourself from the absurd accusations made by your attorney you imply that she is still representing you in this matter by failing to follow that with a clear statement that she is not. As long as you retain Orly Taitz as your attorney what she says is said on your behalf. You cannot have it both ways. Either Orly Taitz is your attorney or she is not.

  • Dr. Conspiracy

    I should point out that this is the third “smack down” in as many weeks for the “two citizen parent” theory. The first was in a federal court in Virginia in the Tisdale case (citing Wong and Perkins v. Elg), the second was a Hearing Officer recommendation and election board decision in Illinois last Thursday, followed by Malihi’s decision last Friday (citing Ankeny).

    I can appreciate the passionate attachment some folks have to this two citizen parent theory of presidential eligibility, and I doubt any argument I could make would be persuasive in the face of such strong emotional and intellectual investment; nevertheless, you should be prepared to deal with an unbroken string of loses in court for as long as this theory is litigated.

    • Squeeky Fromm, Girl Reporter

      Hi DrC!!!

      Thank you for pointing this out. I am working on a new Internet Article about the Virginia Tisdale thingie. I am trying to do it along the lines of “Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. . .”, you know like “Yes, Viginia, there is NO two citizen parent clause”. . .but it is requiring some real work not to strain the metaphor. (Or is it simile???) You have to keep this stuff interesting IMO (which means In My Opinion)

      I did not know about the Indiana thingie, sooo I will look it up. I have a had a two month vacay from the whole Birther thing, and it is hard to get back in harness. Which I am determined to do, though. Plus, I am going to try to read thru Mario Apuzzo’s whole Internet Article and refute his legal theory. (With my BFF Fabia Sheen, Esq.’s help)

    @David Farrar

    “somewhere Judge Malihi assumed that Dr. Taitz had allowed candidate Obama’s birth certificate to come into evidence in our case, when it did not”

    Yes, it did, David, as I pointed out to you over at the Atlanta Journal Constitution. Taitz did introduce Obama’s birth certificate into evidence, together with Linda Jordan’s affidavite proving its entire provenance. I don’t know how you can continue to assert otherwise. Here’s the link to the 208 pages of evidence Orly entered:

    http://www.scribd.com/doc/79963546/2012-1-26-Farrar-v-Obama-Exhibits-1-7

    Go down to pg. 41 and there it is. Further, on pp. 51-55 she entered Linda Jordan’s affidavit which lays out the entire provenance of the birth certificate.

    • Doubtful

      David seems to be under the continuing misapprehension that a certified paper birth certificate must be entered into evidence so that his side will have an opportunity to challenge it.

      But the evidence that Orly herself introduced by way of Linda Jordan’s affidavit bypasses the need for a physical document. The affidavit shows that Hawaiian officials have attested to the veracity of the contents of the .pdf posted on the White House web site. Once such officials have attested to the President’s birth data, there is no need for a paper document saying the same thing.

  • David Farrar

    Nathanael

    I see, so let’s go back to Mario Apuzzo, Esq take on your point:

    “We also know from the decision that the judge ruled that plaintiffs’ documents introduced into evidence were “of little, if any, probative value, and thus wholly insufficient to support Plaintiff’s allegations.” Surely, the court did not use those “insufficient” documents as evidence of Obama’s place of birth. Nor does the judge tell us that he used those documents for any such purpose.”

    I guess, if we can’t find where Sec. Kemp and Judge Malihi connected the dots to arrived at a properly entered birth certificate, we will have to appeal.

    ex animo
    davidfarrar

    • Doubtful

      David —

      Isn’t the intellectual dishonesty in Mario’s comment obvious to you?

      ALJ Malihi did not say that any of the documents was “insufficient.” What he said was that the documents, taken together, were “wholly insufficient to support Plaintiff’s allegations.”

      That does not mean that he didn’t rely on any of them for anything. All it means is that they were not remotely sufficient to support your claims.

      • David Farrar

        Doubtful,

        I suppose if you want to find an excuse, you can always make one up. But unless a certified birth certificate was entered into evidence, the one where the raised emboss seal can actually be felt, Judge Malihi doesn’t know, as matter of a proven fact, where candidate Barack Obama was born.

        ex animo
        davidfararr

      • Doubtful

        No, David, that’s not true. If he is aware that the appropriate Hawaiian officials have attested to the President’s birth data based on their personal inspection of Hawaii’s official records, then he does know as a matter of proven fact when and where the President was born.

      • HistorianDude

        Remember also David, that the standards of proof vary depending on the nature of the proceeding. While this was not an Article 3 court, it is clear at least to me that the standard here is the civil standard… i.e. “the preponderance of evidence.”

        Given the evidence before him, how could you possibly maintain that the preponderance of evidence available to him was not indicative of a a Hawaiian birth exclusively? Did any one in any of the three cases make even the bald assertion that he was born anywhere other than Hawaii?

  • ChillyDogg

    “The Minor Court left open the issue of whether a child born within the United States of alien parent(s) is a natural born citizen.”

    It appears that it’s you and the Ankeny court who can’t read. The Minor court left open the question of whether or not a child of aliens is a “citizen”. A “citizen”, period. In addition, we all know that they did in fact answer that question anyway because they defined NBC as “born on the soil to citizen parents”. It’s right there in black and white. Can you read? Just because you and the Ankeny court make shit up to support your position doesn’t make it true. If anything it proves you wrong.

    • Squeeky Fromm, Girl Reporter

      Hi ChillyDog!!!

      For some reason your comment went to the spam thingy here. Anyway, on Minor Happersett. . . what you say is just YOUR opinion. My opinion, and the opinion of all the judges who have read the case is that the Minor Court left the issue open period. There are numerous Internet Articles here which explain this.

      In short, your main argument boils down to the fact that the Ankeny disagrees with YOUR opinon. It is past time for you and the other two citizen parent Birthers to face facts- – - you’re just wrong. That is why all the courts are ruling against you and the course of history is at odds with your interpretation.

      Girl Reporter

      • ChillyDogg

        It is not my opinion, it is the opinion of the Minor court else they would not have included it in their decision. Whether or not the definition of NBC given in Minor is dicta or precedent is for the SCOTUS to decide, but for the case in Minor it is the pertinent definition. Ankeny is clearly a case of selective reading. They emphasize the “doubts” quote, which only talks about “citizens”, while ignoring the NBC definition. You can not say that Minor left the issue open because at least for that one case they did define NBC and it does not include the children of aliens. Basically Ankeny inserts the words “natural born” were they do not exist.

      • Doubtful

        @ChillyDogg — “You can not say that Minor left the issue open because at least for that one case they did define NBC and it does not include the children of aliens.”
        __

        This is logical double-talk. They did not define NBC. They acknowledged the NBCship of a particular individual who had two citizen parents. They explicitly said that they would leave the question of whether two citizen parents were required for NBCship for another court at another time, and it is widely understood in the legal community that the question was settled by Wong Kim Ark.

    • Slartibartfast

      I know it’s gotta be hard birfing after such a painful loss to an empty chair, but that’s just lame.

      The dicta in Minor left the issue open–the holding in Wong Kim Ark closed the issue.

      • ChillyDogg

        The “dicta” in Minor did not leave the question open IN THE MINOR CASE! Whether or not the definition in Minor can be applied elsewhere is for the SCOTUS to decide, but for the Minor case the definition absolutely excludes the children of aliens as NBC.

      • Doubtful

        @ChillyDogg — “but for the Minor case the definition absolutely excludes the children of aliens as NBC.”
        __

        I am sorry to say it, but that is an outright lie. Minor did not “absolutely exclude” anything. What it in fact said was, “[f]or the purposes of this case it is not necessary to solve these doubts.”

      • HistorianDude

        @ ChillyDogg

        You are committing among the most elementary of logical fallacies; denying the antecedent.

        There is a statement that if p then q.

        But that does not imply that if not p, then not q.

        For example:

        If it’s raining, then the streets are wet.
        It isn’t raining.
        Therefore, the streets aren’t wet.

        There are other reasons a street might be wet than because it is raining.

        There are other ways a person can be an NBC than because they were born on US soil to two citizen parents.

        There is no definition, and specifically no exclusive definition of natural born citizen in the MvH decision.

      I was under the impression that your complaint with Obama was that he wasn’t born in Hawaii, even though there’s no evidence to suggest that.

      But now you’re saying that, mirabile dictu, he’s doubly ineligible, because of the completely unrelated NBC argument?

      That’s quite a coincidence, isn’t it?

      • David Farrar

        Doubtful,

        We think we have brought enough evidence and testimony to the table to seriously question candidate Obama internet posted evidence. If this was not so, Jablonski would have never bothered to stuff his client’s birth certificate into his letter of non-participation envelope. I think the burden of proof rests squarely on his shoulders now to produce his birth certificate in a court setting.

        The “burden of establishing a delegation of power to the United States * * * is upon those making the claim.” Bute v. Illinois, 333 U.S. 640, 653 (1948). And if each of the General Government’s powers must be proven (not simply presumed) to exist, then every requirement that the Constitution sets for any individual’s exercise of those delegated powers must also be proven (not simply presumed) to be fully satisfied before that individual may exercise any of those powers.

        The Constitution’s command that “[n]o Person except a natural born Citizen * * * shall be eligible to the Office of President” is an absolute prohibition against the exercise of each and every Presidential power by certain unqualified individuals. Actually (not simply presumptively or speculatively) being “a natural born Citizen” is the condition precedent sine qua non for avoiding this prohibition. Therefore, anyone who claims eligibility for “the Office of President” must, when credibly challenged, establish his qualifications in this regard with sufficient evidence.
        We, and the nation are still waiting for candidate Obama to establish his qualifications instead of running away from this responsibility.

        David — Lots of luck with Bute!

        But you have ignored my question. Doesn’t it seem like a really remarkable coincidence to you?

        I mean, here’s a President of the United States who went through grueling primaries, a hard-fought general election, a resounding victory in both the popular and the electoral votes, the unanimous approval of the Electoral College’s vote by both houses of Congress, numerous legal challenges, etc., etc.

        And not only do you claim that he is ineligible in a way that, surprisingly, has completely failed to keep him from reaching and holding office — but, in fact you claim he is ineligible in two completely unrelated ways, both of which have completely failed to keep him from reaching and holding office!

    “The Minor court left open the question of whether or not a child of aliens is a ‘citizen’. A ‘citizen’, period.”

    That little word “include” is the ringer, and the point at which your whole argument fails.

    Minor is talking about natural-born citizens. It says so right there in the first sentence of this paragraph. Specifically, it is asking the question, “who are natural-born citizens?”

    Common law is quite clear, Minor said, that all those born within US jurisdiction of citizen parents (i.e., jus soli+jus sanguinis) were natural-born citizens. All agree on that.

    “Some authorities go further and include as” NATURAL BORN “citizens children born within the jurisdiction without reference to the citizenship oftheir parents.”

    To claim Minor means at this point anything else than natural-born citizens is to strain the logic of the passage beyond breaking: What are natural-born citizens? Jus soli/jus sanguinis folk, by everyone’s account, are. Some go further and also inlcude jus-soli-only folk as natural born citizens, though others dispute that.

    And of course all that ignores the more fundamental problem, which is that Minor v. Happersett is, at this point, dicta, not holding, and is therefore NOT precedent.

      Mr. Farrar:

      Are you familiar with the concept of “confirmation bias”? This cognitive process is, I believe, the best explanation for the ability of folks who dispute the eligibility of President (Candidate) Obama to question the validity of his Hawaii Birth Certificate, the 1961 birth announcements, the congressional certification of the electoral college vote, etc. The wishful thinking which precedes every “birther” court case, despite the 0-99 loss record is the hallmark of “confirmation bias”. The long form and short form birth certificates have been released and certified by the State of Hawaii. What additional evidence would a rational individual require to accept the assertion that President Obama was born in Hawaii?

  • Nathanael

    @David Farrar

    Following up on Doubtful’s line.

    “I see, so let’s go back to Mario Apuzzo, Esq take on your point:”

    I’d rather not, thanks. I’d prefer a more reliable source. To wit, here is what Malihi’s ruling actually said:

    “1. Evidentiary Arguments of Plaintiffs Farrar, et al.

    Plaintiffs Farrar, Lax, Judy, Malaren, and Roth content that President Barack Obama is not a natural born citizen. To support this contention, Plaintiffs assert that Mr. Obama maintains a fraudulently obtained social security number, a Hawaiian birth certificate that is a computer-generated forgery, and that he does not otherwise possess valid U.S. identification papers. Further, Plaintiffs submit that Mr. Obama has previously held Indonesian citizenship, and he did not use his legal name on his notice of candidacy, which is either Barry Soetoro or Barack Obama Soebarkah. (Pl.s’ Am. Compl. 3)”

    It continues on to describe the evidence your case presented, then continues in the third paragraph:

    “The Court finds the testimony of the witnesses, as well as the exhibits tendered, to be of little, if any, probative value, and thus wholly insufficient to support Plaintiffs’ allegations.”

    The answer is simple: Malihi is stating that your evidence was of little probative value specifically with respect to proving the claims you made. Your claims were that Obama maintained fraudulent SSNs, a forged BC, was an Indonesian citizen, etc., etc. The judge did not say your evidence didn’t prove anything; merely that it didn’t prove your claims.

    • David Farrar

      Nathanael,

      yes, I think your take is correct. But remember, Judge Malihi also made a finding earlier in the case that said candidate Obama must met the qualifications required to hold the office sought.

      One of those qualification is to be born in the United States.

        davidfarrar

      • SLQ

        Actually, that’s not true. A certified copy of his birth certificate has been on file at his campaign headquarters since 2007. So, the people who are responsible for presenting him as a qualified candidate have had the proof they needed to ensure he met the requirements. That copy was certified by the state of Hawaii, and is accepted as proof of birth for any purpose under the full faith and credit clause. (Though this is irrelevant, the certified paper copy was inspected by factcheck.org, as I’m sure you know.) All discussion of the internet copies presented for the general public’s information are completely irrelevant. You have been allegedly searching for something that has already been proven to exist and has been at the place it needed to be since 2007 — campaign headquarters — bearing the seal. http://factcheck.org/2008/08/born-in-the-usa/ (Note that factcheck.org has merely verified that the actual certificate is on file where it needs to be.)

        You state President Obama is required to present it in court to satisfy your curiosity, but you give no reason why you think that is true. It simply isn’t true. He provided the official copy in 2007, provided a copy of it for the public’s information in 2008, and provided yet another copy of his long form BC in 2011. The last two internet copies were never meant to be “official” proof of his birth for any purpose. The “official” proof resides at campaign HQ. It’s possible Kemp has another “official” copy now, but as long as he is satisfied of the information contained in either his “official” copy (if he has one) or the copies in the court record, the case is closed. You may attempt to appeal, but the result will be the same. No attempt to discredit the online copies will change the fact that the people that need to be assured of his birth in Hawaii, via his actual paper certified copy, are already assured of that simple fact.

        Just because YOU haven’t seen and inspected an official copy doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist, nor does it mean you have a right to see it. Malihi and Kemp are satisfied that he was born in Hawaii, largely because the BCs were introduced as evidence in your cases (yes, yours, too — see Orly’s document dump, page 41 and Powell’s affidavit.) As stated above, your disbelief does not give you the right to demand to see it. The people who do have that right (i.e. the campaign HQ and Kemp) are satisfied.

    • bob

      The fault isn’t mine

        Actually, it is not “just good leadership” to respond to a bunch of yahoos who question a state-certified document that was provided almost 5 years ago and has been verified as accurate by the state of Hawaii.

        In fact, for the President of the United States to respond to every Tom, Dick, or Harry about minutia is the opposite of good leadership. His focus remains where it needs to be — on leading the country on issues of national importance.

        You may believe that continued harassment regarding the state certified and verified fact of his birth is a matter of national importance. But it is not.

  • Nathanael

    @David Farrar

    “Malihi also made a finding earlier in the case that said candidate Obama must met the qualifications required to hold the office sought.

    One of those qualification is to be born in the United States.”

    To which end the evidence submitted by the plaintiffs was sufficient to conclude in the affirmative. Irion and Hatfield both stipulated to the birth certificate and, your insistence to the contrary notwithstanding, there is no evidentiary rule that requires Malihi to forget a fact he already knows. Even were there such a rule, your own case also submitted the birth certificate both by way of exhibit during the hearing and into evidence afterwards together with the Jordan affidavit laying out its entire provenance.

    Remember that all three cases presented the birth certificate. In your own case you claimed it was a forgery, but Malihi concluded your evidence didn’t support that claim. If you enter a birth certificate as evidence, but fail to prove it’s a forgery, then the only reasonable conclusion left is it’s not. QED.

  • Doubtful

    David —

    I’ve been thinking a little more about this. You say you don’t know where President Obama was born, and I have to admit, I don’t know either. I have no personal knowledge about the President’s birth or any other aspect of his personal life. I am in exactly the same position as you.

    But his eligibility for the Presidency has nothing to do with anybody’s personal knowledge. It has to do with what is considered true under the law. There are certain basic principles that the law uses to determine what is legally considered to be true.

    For example, there’s the Full Faith and Credit clause of the Constitution. What it says is that any fact that’s contained in the official records of a state is legally true.

    I think the reason you are getting nowhere is that you keep making it a matter of whether you yourself are convinced — or whether the relevant evidence was introduced in a particular hearing.

    But this is a question of legal truth, and perhaps you should instead be focusing on the widely held notion that, from a legal point of view, we in the United States consider Barack Obama to have been born in Honolulu on August 4, 1961 simply for the reason that an official state record says so.

    • David Farrar

      Doubtful

      “The Full Faith and Credit Clause—Article IV, Section 1, of the U.S. Constitution—provides that the various states must recognize… public records”…

      I don’t see a conflict here. Rest assured, when candidate Obama enters his birth certificate into evidence, the FF & C clause will be duly recognized. In effect, a properly certified document is self-authenticating, not self-appearing. Even if a certified document is self-authenticating, it doesn’t mean the information contained on that document is correct or true. All it means is that that information matches the information contained in certifying agency’s files, mistakes and all.

        No, David, read it again. I am not talking about a birth certificate. What I am saying has nothing to do with any birth certificate.

        An official state record, David. Not a birth certificate. An official state record. The one in Honolulu. The one that competent state officials confirm to contain the information that you don’t want to accept as legal truth.

  • bob

  • bob

    Rest assured, when candidate Obama enters his birth certificate into evidence, the FF & C clause will be duly recognized.

    President Obama’s birth certificate already was admitted into evidence (“duly recognized”), without objection.

    Even if a certified document is self-authenticating, it doesn’t mean the information contained on that document is correct or true.

      • SLQ

        Please note, also, that the FF&C does NOT require that a record be presented in court. It says that GA shall give full faith and credit to Hawaii’s records, i.e. the birth certificate. So Malihi and Kemp must recognize it, whether or not it was presented in your case.

        To reword it, it doesn’t say that “Full faith and credit shall be given IN THE WAY THAT DAVID FARRAR AND ORLY TAITZ WANT IT TO BE in each state . . .” If Kemp has a certified copy of the BC, or if (as we know) he has a copy of it, along with knowledge that Hawaii has verified the record, he must give it full faith and credit, i.e. accept it as true.

  • bob

    Not in our case, it wasn’t.

    Yes, it was.

    And if you think Malihi would accept the birth certificate for one challenge against a candidate, but deny its existance for another challenge against the same candidate, you are even dumber than you already are.

    Moreover if there are mistakes in the Hawaiian Health Department files, and we know there are, how do we know there aren’t more, and how do you know information pertinent his eligibility is true

    David, you can continue to play epistemological sceptic if you like, but the legal question is settled beyond dispute.

    How many mistakes there are in the HDOH files is utterly irrelevant to the question of legal truth. Whatever the HDOH files are is the legal truth for FF&C purposes. FF&C says no state nor court is competent to question what the state of Hawaii says is true. If it’s in the Hawaii records, and Hawaii certifies that’s what’s in their records, that’s the end of the line. You can go no further.

    If you think there are errors in the HDOH records, then you need to be taking that up with the HDOH. As far as an administrative hearing in Georgia is concerned, once Hawaii certified Obama was born in Hawaii, the door was shut to any further questioning of the record. A Georgian administrative judge has neither competence nor jurisdiction to question what the state of Hawaii says is true. Again, if you think you have evidence that Hawaii’s records are in error, you need to pursue that with the state of Hawaii.

        You had the right to challenge the President’s qualifications for being a candidate in Georgia, and a hearing was held. But you have no legal authority to require that the President prove his eligibility in any particular way. There was no “order of a court of competent jurisdiction” requiring the production of a birth certificate, and simply stamping your feet in protest doesn’t change that.

        SoS Kemp directed ALJ Malihi to make a determination, he did, and SoS Kemp concurred. Sorry you’re not satisfied, but no one had the obligation to satisfy you. The obligation was to follow the facts and the law and arrive at the truth, and that’s just what happened.

        I believe it’s not discovery you’re after, as that usually refers to a process of opposing attorneys disclosing their evidence to each other before a proceeding.

        I think the relief you desire and that you were roundly denied, is a free pass for an extralegal inspection of vital records for which you have no tangible interest. Relief that you knew prior to the proceeding could not be granted under any circumstance.

        Discovery is not court-ordered access to any vital records department anywhere you desire, to “discover” some evidence.

        Your assertion that somehow the judge can only rule in favor of the president if he or his attorney were the ones introducing the favorable evidence is, like all of birthism, downright insane.

        “once we are granted discovery in a trial setting, we have won.”

        You won’t be. Appeals aren’t do-overs. You don’t get to introduce new evidence, or even rehash old stuff. Appeals address procedural defects or dispute conclusions of law. The evidentiary record is what it is and remains closed.

        On appeal there is no new evidence, no discovery.

        Here’s a link and some quotes:

        http://www.massachusettsappealsattorney.com/Why_Appellate_Advocacy.html

        “An appeal is not about challenging the facts.”
        “An appeal is not a second chance at a trial.”
        “Appellate advocacy focuses on legal error and judicial discretion, not witness credibility.”

        And here’s one for you to consider:

        “The appeals lawyer has one opportunity, consisting of mere minutes, to plead your case to the appellate court before decision.”

        Recalling that in the pre-hearing confab with Malihi your own counsel requested a full two hours to present her case, are you confident that she can restrict herself to mere minutes and present a tight cogent case that argues points of law rather than rehashing her same evidence? I’m not at all convinced Orly has the discipline or organizational abilities to serve you at the appellate level, even if she does manage to find somewhere to sponsor her pro hac vice motion. You may be better off finding representation that has experience at the appellate level.

        We have been told, both by Hawaiian officials and on State of Hawaii web sites, that the official records of the State of Hawaii show that Barack Obama was born there on August 4, 1961. Under the Full Faith and Credit clause, that makes it a legal fact, not to mention the fact that it’s completely uncontested — there’s not the slightest evidence to show he was born anywhere else.

        You are quibbling over how the judge is going to explain how he knows that this is is fact. You can quibble away, but since it is a fact, you’re going to lose. The requirement is that the Secretary of State make a decision based upon what is true.

        You are trying to make the argument that the truth should be ignored. That won’t help you. No court in the land is going to buy an argument like “OK, it’s true, but ALJ Malihi and SoS Kemp were not permitted to use legally established facts to come to their decision.”

If you are still turned down on appeal, does that mean you were wrong, or does it mean that the Superior Court is wrong? Do you really think you know more about the law than all the judges in Georgia (and perhaps beyond)?

        Thank you for making that so clear. It proves that you do not have a ghost of a chance.

        There is simply no doubt in the law about what it takes to prove where someone was born. If the facts of someone’s birth are recorded in a state’s official records, that is definitive proof. The Constitution guarantees it. There’s no way around it.

        Pretending that someone has an obligation to meet your definition of proof rather than the Constitution’s definition of proof is a non-starter.

    “You had the right to challenge the President’s qualifications for being a candidate in Georgia, and a hearing was held. But you have no legal authority to require that the President prove his eligibility in any particular way. There was no “order of a court of competent jurisdiction” requiring the production of a birth certificate, and simply stamping your feet in protest doesn’t change that.”

    Judge Malihi made eight findings in this case. Finding Number Eight (8): “Accordingly, this Court finds that Defendant is a candidate for federal office who has been certified by the state executive committee of a political party, and therefore must, under Code Section 21-2-5, meet the constitutional and statutory qualifications for holding the office being sought.”

    So, does he meet the qualifications? Official Hawaiian state records tell us that he is Hawaiian-born and over 35, and other public records show that he has been in residence in the U.S. for at least 14 years. Wong Km Ark tells us that his Hawaiian birth makes him a natural born citizen.

      When a judge makes a “finding” in your case, both parties would do well to read it and take heed of its meaning.

      Now from Judge Malihi’s finding, we asked ourselves: What has candidate Obama done to prove he has met the constitutional and statutory qualifications for holding the office being sought?

      Answer: He has posted an image of what purports to be an uncertified, or defectively certified (no emboss seal visible) Hawaiian birth certificate on his White House dot gov site.

    David and the other plaintiffs seem to be under the impression that based on Georgia code and case law that anyone can challenge any candidate without a shred of proof that the candidate is ineligible and force them to produce a certified copy of their birth certificate into evidence at a hearing. When you peel away the Orly BS that is exactly what Farrar’s case is all about. I posit that if that were the case Georgia would have law requiring every candidate for president to file a COLB with the SoS. I seem to remember that a bill that would have required something like that was proposed and died an ignominious death last session.

    • Doubtful

      Yes, R/C, I think you’ve hit it right on the head. And yet even that demand is self-contradictory. David has long since acknowledged that the “vault copy,” the original Hawaiian record, carries the same information as the COLB and the LFBC; his latest contention is that those original records themselves could be wrong.

      How he intends to show that by examining a certified COLB is, however, beyond me.

      Of course, if there were any factual evidence to show that the President was born anywhere other than where his records say he was born, it would have been absolute legal malpractice not to introduce that evidence at the hearing. It sounds like what David wants is a fishing expedition, and he’s sure as hell not going to get that.

    It does no such thing. It says the President must meet constitutional requirements. It does not say the President himself must submit the evidence. You’re playing word games.

    As I said upthread, your own case introduced the birth certificate then failed to prove it’s a forgery. At that point, the only reasonable conclusion left is it’s not.

    Look, Malihi wrote Finding Number Eight. It’s up to him, not you, to determine what he meant by it and whether its requirements have been fulfilled. As Doubtful pointed out, you’re left with petulantly stamping your feet and whining that the judge didn’t reach his determination in a manner YOU approve of, but that’s just not your call.

    “we weren’t putting forward evidence to ‘prove’ candidate Obama was ineligible. We were putting forward exhibits and testimony to show why simply posting an image … on his White House dot gov Internet site is insufficient….”

    And the judge didn’t buy your argument. Or are you already forgetting his ruling? Malihi determined there was sufficient evidence to prove the President was born in Hawaii, and no competent evidence to the contrary. You’re unhappy the judge apparently didn’t restrict himself to evidence or lines of reasoning pre-approved by David Farrar, but them’s the breaks.

    “As I look back over the transcript of OUR case … I cannot find any reference to Hawaiian officials [etc.]”

    You’re obfuscating, David, and it would appear we know better than you yourself what was said and introduced in your case. Go to the link I gave you over at the AJC site and again upthread here and look at the evidence YOUR counsel admitted into the record. Read Linda Jordan’s sworn affidavit. She goes into excruciating detail laying out all the statements the state of Hawaii has made regarding President Obama’s place of birth and proving the provenance of the birth certificate your same counsel also introduced into the record. You may not approve of the ways in which Malihi used your evidence, but just because it’s your evidence doesn’t mean you get to dictate which conclusions the judge is allowed to reach.

    The bottom line is this: the judge has declared that your evidence failed to support your claims, and that there was convincing evidence the President is qualified for the office of POTUS. If you think the judge stepped all over some procedural or evidentiary rule to reach those conclusions, then good luck with your appeal. You’ll need it.

That’s dead on 616-1-2-.18. It’s not the copy of a birth certificate entered into evidence or the image.

        Did you read what I wrote? You are too focused on the piece of paper, which is the physical and portable version of the official record. Read the regulation again. A reasonably prudent person would rely on the official statements of a government agency. That’s what the DoH website is. The paper isn’t necessary if the official acts of the agency confirm the record. They do, they have, reasonable people know this. Therefore the rule applies, and no raised seal on an unnecessary piece of paper is needed. Certified copy of birth record = official notice from the certifying agency. It’s another form of verification.

        Your appeal on this point is another futile effort.

      No, David, they’re not going to wonder about anything. Let me try to find another way of explaining it to you.

      Just for the sake of argument, let’s suppose that the lawyers on both sides neglected to state in their submissions that the Barack Obama they were referring to is the President of the United States.

      Does that mean that the judge in his ruling cannot consider the fact that the candidate is also the President? Of course not; the law doesn’t turn on technicalities like that. The judge will simply take notice of the fact that Barack Obama is the President. Nobody has to put it on the record for him, because it is legally recognized as fact.

      Similarly with the President’s date and place of birth. That information is known with legal certainty, because we know how it appears on official state records. Therefore in can be taken notice of by a judge or hrearing officer. No one has to put it on the record.

      • David Farrar

        Doubtful,

        I don’t think you are right. In our case there was absolutely no reason, nor justification, for the judge to take “official notice” that candidate Obama was the president. If he had wanted to do that, then he should have simply issued “Finding Number 9.

        If Judge Malihi wanted to recognize Hawaiian health Department statements, fine. Issue a Finding and we all can go from there. The fact that Judge Malihi didn’t state what fact(s) he based his consideration upon, the very reason we were there, makes a mockery of Georgia’s judiciary system — yes, I know it wasn’t an actual trial. But in the eyes of the birther community, it was a sham.

  • Slartibartfast

    Mr. Farrar,

    First off, I don’t believe that you deserve anything more than a court refusing to overturn SoS Kemp’s decision (likely on the “technicality” that you have no basis on which to appeal, but the inability for your lawyer to file anything correctly or your complete and utter lack of merit in your case would both spell your doom (and rightfully so) on their own.

    More importantly, I have a question now (after all, you’ve had your question about President Obama and the GA ballot answered–even if you don’t like the answer and want to move the goalposts…): Are you a racist?

    Let’s look at the facts:

    You have an unquestionably racist lawyer–as evinced by things she’s written in public communication, posted on her blog personally, and allowed through her heavy-handed moderation. By the way, you “disavowal” of Orly’s statements was pathetic. I’m sure that if SoS Kemp’s office still had any respect for you (unlikely) it was destroyed by your whiny attempt to argue your case instead of just saying you wanted nothing more to do with your vicious, hate-filled, incompetent lawyer.

    You are using an unquestionably racist argument. The “two citizen parents” argument (straight from the same mis-translation of Vattel written a decade after the Constitution) was the cornerstone of the Dred Scott decision. If you think Dred Scott wasn’t racist then that’s convincing evidence that you are a racist right there…

    You participate in a movement which uniformly tolerates racism (plus sedition and plenty of other hate-filled bile…). I’ve never seen a birther call out one of the many racists in their midst–why is that? Why do you feel comfortable “paling around with racists”?

    It seems to me that the evidence that you are a racist is much stronger than the evidence that President Obama is not eligible. Can you offer us any proof that your Quixotic quest to overturn a lawful election is based on anything other than racism? (it sure isn’t based on the facts or the law…)

      First of all, you’re being willfully ignorant here. You’ve been told repeatedly that ALJ Malihi is permitted to take judicial (administrative) notice of things not in the record, and the relevant law had been quoted to you several times. Sticking your fingers in your ears and pretending not to hear is a juvenile stunt.

      But, most important, say you are right. Just for the sake or argument, say that the Superior Court of Fulton County is displeased that ALJ Malihi failed to state the source of his knowledge of the President’s birth data.

      Then what? Will they reverse the decision?

      Don’t be ridiculous. The Superior Court too lives in the real world and will not hesitate to apply what is widely known in the United States: Legally, the date and place of President Obama’s birth are matters of proven fact since we’ve been officially told what’s in Hawaii’s state records.

    The plain simple fact of the matter is, here was Sec.

      Well, let’s see how his actions worked out for him. On the one hand, he’s got a whiner on blog sites accusing him of running away; and on the other hand, he’s got the presiding ALJ (with the concurrence of the Secretary of State) saying:

      “The Court finds the testimony of the witnesses, as well as the exhibits tendered, to be of little, if any, probative value, and thus wholly insufficient to support plaintiffs’ allegations…. None of the testifying witnesses offered persuasive testimony. Moreover, the Court finds that none of the written submissions tendered by plaintiffs have probative value. Given the unsatisfactory evidence presented by the plaintiffs, the court concludes the plaintiffs’ claims are not persuasive.”

      Tell me again why he’s the one coming out of this looking bad.

    A court would not “find” HDOH statements, it would “consider” them. Ditto for Obama being president.

    “The fact that Judge Malihi didn’t state any in his decision, leads a person with common sense to believe he didn’t use any.”

    Everyone is free, of course, to continue to rehash a hearing that is over and done with and what did or didn’t happen, what was or was not presented/accepted/rejected and ruled on. It is now time, however, to concentrate on the “appeal.”

    I suspect Hatfield and Van Irion will file Monday, Tuesday at the latest. Orly perhaps Monday as well. The Court will most likely consolidate the appeals as the “issue/s” is/are the same.

    Orly’s said very little about her appeal, except to ask David if he wished to join HER appeal. Are they going to Fulton County Superior Court or can they go straight to the GA Supreme Court? If they go to Superior Court first and lose will the GA Supreme Court (where GA law is pretty clearly against them) even take up the appeal?

    She’s not mentioned looking for a sponsoring attorney in GA, for instance. Does she have one or does she believe being allowed to appear before an administrative judge grants her pro hac vice in the GA courts? If she believes that and the Court disagrees and makes her, play by the real rules? Then what?

    “So when Judge Malihi made no “Finding” that candidate Obama was born in the United States, is wasn’t using the law, he was using the evidence and the legal arguments presented at the hearing to establish this “fact”?”

    Your getting confused on the language once again. The court did not “find” that the President was born in Hawaii, it “considered” it:

    “For the purpose of this section’s analysis, the following facts are considered: 1) Mr. Obama was born in the United States;” (pg. 6)

    “For the purposes of this analysis, this Court considered that President Barack Obama was born in the United States.” (pg. 10)

    Remember that courts “consider” facts and “find” conclusions of law. That the President was born in the US was a fact established through the evidence provided, and perhaps judicial notice and his own research. Legal arguments apply to conclusions of law, not finding of facts, so no, based on Malihi’s language, no legal arguments were used in determining Obama was born in the US; that was established on the strength of the evidence alone.

    • David Farrar

      Nathanael,

      Actually, I think we are both wrong here.

Not to mention that its veracity can be inferred from official statements from Hawai’i. You can’t un-ring the bell and you can’t change the rules of evidence. Truthfully, you (personally) are completely irrelevant in any case–and you have been ever since you had the poor judgement to put your argument in Orly’s incompetent hands. I really hope you get sanctioned for this frivolous shit–you certainly deserve it.

  • Nathanael

    “I now think Judge Malihi’s statement … was directed to his analysis only of the natural born Citizen issue raised by all three cases.”

    Which means what, exactly? That it didn’t apply to the rest of your case? But as Malihi rejected all your evidence as not probative or supporting of your claims, you’re still left with nothing. And the evidence for Obama’s US birth remains unassailed.

    “In actuality there was NO evidence ‘presented at the hearing,’ in response to subpoenas or submitted pre-trial upon which Judge Malihi could base his decision”

    There was of course a LOT of evidence presented at the hearing. It’s just that both you and the fine folk at WesternJournalism.com continue to operate under the misapprehension that evidence in favor of the defendant can only be in favor of the defendant if it was submitted BY the defendant. That somehow plaintiffs are insured by some mysterious application of a non-existent statute from shooting themselves in the foot by proving the defendant’s case for him.

    Note that the citation from Malihi’s decision doesn’t say “as well as the evidence and legal arguments presented BY THE DEFENDANT at the hearing.” There is no restriction placed on who is allowed to submit evidence favorable to the defendant, and if the plaintiffs want to go ahead and do that, I’m sure Jablonski is grateful for the help.

    Again, you do not get to decide for the judge what use he’s allowed to put evidence to. You can’t say, sorry, Your Honor, but it’s OUR evidence, therefore you’re only allowed to use it in ways favorable to us. That’d be like a defendant submitting a picture of himself committing armed robbery, then complaining when the judge finds him guilty.

When you make statements claiming the decision “looks like” it was written Obama’s attorneys and call that proof you should be ashamed. I hope your attorney is sanctioned and the defense moves for costs. You should pay with your wallet for this crap.

      • Frank Bolivar

        Of course, first she has to be admitted to practice before the court. According to her (second) submission of her pro hac vice application (the first the judge wrote her a note and told her to read the f’g rules) she can’t find a GA attorney willing to risk his license by signing off on her ridiculous pleadings. David may have to look elsewhere or go it pro se. Based on his obvious excellent legal knowledge as posted here, I’m
        sure he’d do an excellent job.

        OR, perhaps that GA attorney that assisted him in drawing his initial complaint would be willing to step in.

        I am speaking of the appeal that she filed in your case. She submitted it to the Superior Court in your name.

        She has already been sanctioned once in Georgia, as I’m sure you know, and it hardly strikes me as a good idea to be insulting respected public officials, especially when you’re trying to get your side of the argument seen in a favorable light.

  • Reality Check

    @David Farrar

    Are you saying you didn’t even read what your attorney filed? That is astounding. I skimmed it for five minutes and was aghast at the stupidity and arrogance of it. Your attorney could end up costing you some bucks if costs are awarded for a frivolous filing. Do the other plaintiffs know they might be on the hook? Since you live in Georgia it will be easier for the state to go after you of course. It is not as easily undone as you think either. A judge is not going to like seeing a communication directly from the client explaining that his attorney is an idiot while she still the attorney. I hope you didn’t sign that unethical document that Orly has posted saying you will not sue her for malpractice.

    Best of luck my friend.

    • Frank Bolivar

      Reality Check… of course, she has to be able to be his attorney first. She has thus far failed all 9 requirements of the pro hac vice application (and this her second attempt).

      And she’s not a party (and can’t be) so if she’s not admitted phv David will have to find another attorney (good luck) or go it pro se. He certainly could do no worse than Orly will if she’s permitted to appear phv.

      It does not surprise me one bit that David has not read the tripe his “attorney” filed on his behalf, for several reasons, the main one being Orly has no “clients,” she has a name on a pleading that allows her to spread her crap to courts. There’s no way she submits pleadings to clients for review and approval. That would be acting as a real lawyer and we all know she’s as far from being a lawyer as one can get.

      • Reality Check

        You are probably correct. I suspect Taitz didn’t send a copy to any of the “plaintiffs” before she filed but only afterwards. However, he is her attorney whether she is admitted to practice or not and the motion was filed. Even without the criminal accusations the case is nonsense and frivolous, however. The other 3 are also.

        I don’t know whether you heard my show last night but Sterngard Freigen thinks that once the plaintiffs refile against the correct defendant (who knows how long that will take) that the GA AG will argue that the SoS has no jurisdiction in a PPP primary and the cases should be dismissed. Now that would cause some Brifer heads to kaplode.

          Yeah, I get that. I even stated so in another post… he signed it so he owns it.

          He’s also pro se unless she’s admitted, which would probably be a good thing for him.

          And she can’t appear pro se, as she seems to think she can, as she was not, nor is she now, a party.

    Doesn’t matter whether he read it or not. Unless Orly forged his signature, he signed it, so he owns it.

      Absolutely, if his name is on it he owns it. Now there are some potential actions he could take but I think we have helped enough already. ;) (One obvious show of good faith would be to fire Taitz and lodge a complaint with the California Bar but my take is he is too much of an Orly sycophant to do that. )

      You know, David, it hasn’t been that long since you smugly gave us your personal assurance that you had been awarded a default judgment and that President Obama was definitely not going to appear on the 2012 ballot. There was no doubt in your mind that that was the case, though of course events have proven otherwise.

      I’m not accusing you of lying. I think you were sadly misled by deceitful, incompetent people that you trusted.

      But don’t you ever learn? There’s one person on this scene who has consistently, reliably been absolutely wrong every single time

      You can see that, can’t you? Why are you blindly following the path that leads nowhere but into the abyss?

      • David Farrar

        Doubtful,

        I am not concerned over the fact that I might be wrong. For all I know, Barack Obama might have met his qualifications. My point was, he has never actually had his credentials vetted properly. Unfortunately, instead of coming into the courtroom and slapping down his birth certificate, and challenging me to prove he is wrong, he chose to run away with his tail between his legs. Just think about it, Barack Obama ran away from little Orly & David. How pathetic is that?

        ex animo
        davidfarrar

      • Doubtful

        LOL, as you might expect, I see it very differently.

        The President of the United States was so unconcerned with the little Orly & David show that he simply went about his business, allowing the show to proceed unimpeded. It meant taking the risk that the President would be undefended in case any evidence of real substance against his eligibility were brought forth.

        And it was a risk well taken. Even the ALJ, who might have been inclined to give Team Obama a hard time for taking the day off, was forced to watch the silly show and say, “You’ve got nothing. Your witnesses are unpersuasive. Your evidence is non-probative.”

        That’s legal talk for labeling a case absolute garbage.

        You seem to be misunderstanding the whole point of the hearing. The President was under no obligation to satisfy you, and no one was obligated to convince you that a proper “vetting” had taken place. It was a fact-finding hearing, the purpose of which was for ALJ Malihi to decide if the President had met his qualifications to appear on the ballot, and he decided in the affirmative.

        You keep using the childish “tail between his legs” crack and it makes you sound like a poor loser. The President not only won big but came out of this with his dignity fully intact. I can’t say the same for your side.

          You are, of course, welcome to your opinion, but the two PTOs tell a different story. The fact is, Jablonski was so cocky he could get this case dismissed, so “…unconcerned with the little Orly & David show that he simply went about his business, allowing the show to proceed unimpeded”…never bothering to prepare his PTO for the eventuality his motion to dismiss just might be overruled. When his motion to dismiss was overruled it left Jablonski and his client with no other recourse but to stuff two copies of his client’s .jpg internet images of his two birth certificate into an envelope, shove them in front of Judge Malihi and Sec. Kemp as they both ran away with, you guessed it, their collective tails between their legs. That is what this little charade was all about…how to get his client’s prima facie evidence into the record when their PTO would not allow it.

        You can play games from today to tomorrow about PTOs, but you’re just dreaming. The President is in fact qualified, there is plenty of evidence to show that he is, there is no evidence to show that he’s not. No one has to satisfy you, they only have to satisfy the authorities, and so far they’ve had no trouble doing that at any level.

        Let’s face it, David, what looks like a great charade to you is simply another day’s work for ALJ Malihi and SoS Kemp. They did what they had to do under the law, and they will be upheld.

        The statement, taken from United States v. Rhodes (1866), was quoted in Wong Kim Ark.

        But I’m not a Constitutional attorney, and I’ll leave it to others to explore the minutiae of the decision with you. I am satisfied from all that I’ve read that WKA is essentially universally considered to be settled law on the question of Natural Born Citizenship — I haven’t seen a single legal opinion to the contrary from a single soul who is recognized as an expert in the field, and while there is always a chance that a future SCOTUS decision will undo what’s been done in the past, I doubt that you or your partners have found the secret quote that, mirabile dictu, will undermine the way the legal community has viewed this decision for over a century with no credible dispute whatsoever.

        But look where we are! Once more, you have turned on a dime from questioning the authenticity of the birth certificate to quote-mining over WKA. As I’ve told you repeatedly, your ability to believe that the President of the United States is ineligible to hold office for not one but two separate and distinct reasons that have nothing to do with each other, and yet both have passed unnoticed by all the opposition research and legal research that’s been brought to bear —

        Well, I ask you again. Isn’t the coincidence simply remarkable?

    He satisfied all of the Constitutionally required vetting (ballot requirements, popular election, electoral college, Congressional certification and the oath of office. You want to make him jump through hoops that weren’t required for any of his predecessors–and you refuse to accept that he has already met a standard of proof that you are completely unable to impeach–a standard that none of his predecessors has even come close to.

  • Slartibartfast

    Mr. Farrar,

    Two of the three attorneys (including your own) introduced evidence of President Obama’s Hawai’ian birth. If the judge was supposed to ignore your evidence why did you bother with this in the first place? The Judge made a finding of fact based on the evidence before him and you have no credible argument that he did anything improper in doing so. I understand that you’re a hypocrite who can’t stand President Obama’s success and I hope one day you will realize what a pathetic person your irrational hate has turned you into.

  • bob

    Is Farrar using the blogosphere as a dress rehearsal for the arguments that he will have to make on his own behalf in court, or will he open his checkbook and hire a Georgia attorney?

      Funny, isn’t it — just a couple of weeks ago David offered some advice to President Obama about how he should pursue a complaint against Jablonski for inadequate representation.

        Didn’t you read ALJ Malihi’s ruling? He said:

        “None of the testifying witnesses provided persuasive testimony. Moreover, the Court finds that none of the written submissions tendered by Plaintiffs have probative value. Given the unsatisfactory evidence presented by the Plaintiffs, the Court concludes that Plaintiffs’ claims are not persuasive.”

        The testimony was uncontested, but ALJ Malihi doesn’t seem to have concluded that it was the truth.

        Are you suggesting that he is in fact the one ignorant of the law?

      • Doubtful

        Frankly, no. I assumed you had an actual argument, rather than a gripe that the Administrative Law Judge himself failed to understand what it means to be a “trier of fact.”

      • Frank Bolivar

        No, it’s not. The testimony, even uncontested, is still subject to the same scrutiny of any testimony… credibility of the witness, knowledge of the subject matter testified to, etc.

        If you believe uncontested testimony must be accept as truth by the trier of fact, you are not near as smart as i initially gave you credit for. Did you learn that concept from Orly? It sound like crap she’d believe also.

        I also find it very difficult to believe you were ever a court reporter and believe such nonsense.

        @David Farrar — “Lacking any other rebuttal evidence, uncontested testimony is the truth.”

        ______

        Uh, no. Not if it is not credible or probative.

        In your case, the ALJ found that your unrebutted evidence was neither.

        The standard on appeal is that the court will accept the findings of fact by the ALJ unless they are clearly erroneous. This is especially true of witness testimony, as the ALJ was in a unique position to assess the demeanor of the witnesses in judging their credibility. You face a nearly impossible task in demonstrating that Judge Malihi’s impressions — unfavorable impressions — of your evidence is clearly erroneous.

  • Slartibartfast

    Mr. Farrar,

    You would have us believe that if one of your witnesses had testified that he had seen the sun rise in the north that morning then the judge would have had to assume that to be true for the purposes of his ruling. If you believe that is the case then you are an even bigger idiot than I thought. You do nothing but embarrass yourself, the state of Georgia, the Republican party, and the country and I’m sure any rational judge will toss your case on one or more of its many procedural defects rather than get into the utter batshittery of your arguments. Please keep birfing as loud as you can–it will help President Obama get reelected.

      Well, just like David was huffing and puffing a few weeks ago about how he was definitely going to get a default judgment, a couple of days ago he had renewed his bragging rights with the claim that any uncontested testimony that his side provided would necessarily have to be taken as true.

      Perhaps he has come to his senses. That claim is totally bogus, as any real lawyer will tell him, and his dreams of a win on those grounds are just as empty as the one about the default.

      David, are you there? Are you still confident that you are firmly on track — that “everything is proceeding as planned”?

  • Doubtful

    Hey, David, you’re back in the news!

    Do you realize that Orly has filed another document in your name (even though she is not legally permitted to represent you in this matter), in which she insults many reputable people and specifically suggests that there were payoffs involved in ALJ Malihi’s and SoS Kemp’s decisions?

    “Malihi, who was supposed to rule based on precedent and facts, did the opposite, totally disregarded precedents and facts and for yet to be determined consideration and without one shred of evidence “assumed” that Obama is eligible to be on the ballot. For yet to be determined consideration secretary of state Kemp rubber stamped Malihi’s decision.” [emphasis added]

    DEAR FRIENDS –

    Please join the Atlanta Tea Party, GA. Tea Party Patriots, Georgia Conservatives in Action, North Georgia Tea Party Alliance, Founding Fathers Tea Party Patriots, and many Tea Party and 9-12 Groups from around Georgia as we celebrate the first annual Tea Party Day at the Capitol this Wednesday, February 22nd beginning at 9:30 AM in the House Appropriations Room #341 in the Capitol.

    We will have citizen lobbyist training, and hear legislative updates from Secretary of State Brian Kemp, Senate President Pro Temp Tommie Williams, Representative Ed Setzler, and many more.

    We will also hear from all of the Presidential Campaigns, so you can have direct access to get involved!

    We will have a panel discussion on TIA/TSPLOST, the most talked about topic in Georgia this legislative session.

    The day will finish with a press conference on Tea Party Day with Representative Tommy Smith who will issue a Proclamation in the Georgia House of Representatives identifying February 22nd as Tea Party Day in Georgia!

    Lunch will be provided to you free of charge provided we receive your RSVP no later that noon on Tuesday, February 21st.

    ***Please remember to call Representative Tommy Smith and thank him for his proclamation and his long-standing dedication to Tea Party values. He has voted with conservatives his entire career and has never sought one moment of press or glory for it. He does the right thing and cares about our principles. Please remember to call him and thank him for it! Rep. Tommy Smith – 404-656-5105
    Secretary of State Brian Kemp
    Leading the way toward fiscally responsible, good government!
    Did you know that the State of Georgia has 43 different boards that license over 460,000 professionals every year?

    It can often take several weeks or even months for hardworking Georgians to get required professional licenses or to resolve compliance problems. This is yet another example of red tape and bureaucracy keeping hardworking Georgians from working.

    Recently Secretary of State Brian Kemp relayed this story:

    “Almost every week, I see a situation like this arise. A salon owner had a location in a strip mall, but decided to move to a better suite in the same strip mall when it became available. When a state inspector visited, he noticed the address on the owner’s license was correct, but not the suite number. As Georgia law requires, the inspector issued a cease and desist order that closed the salon until the Board could hear the case. This caused the owner and her employees to be out of work for an extended period. While it is important that license holders follow the law, it is absurd that a business be shut down for months over a small technical issue that can be easily resolved.”

    Secretary Kemp is working to change this ridiculous bureaucracy, and he needs our help!

    Secretary Kemp has proposed legislation that will streamline this process and cut through red tape and bureaucracy. His proposal will create a single, 7 member board to handle compliance issues that will meet regularly and empower his staff to process licenses and minor complaints. He believes this will slash the cost to taxpayers for having all of these 43 boards meet.

    Most importantly, Kemp can reduce the time it takes to receive a license from MONTHS to less than a WEEK!

    We need to rally to support Secretary Kemp’s licensing bill. He is doing the right thing, but is being attacked by industry insiders and their high dollar lobbyists. He needs our help to overcome the same status quo bureaucracy that is hurting small businesses all over Georgia.

    SB 445 comes up for a hearing in the Senate Regulated Industries Committee on Tuesday. We need to contact the following members of that committee and tell them to support Kemp’s licensing bill.

    Most all of these Senators are very good friends of the Tea Party and conservative movement, and are happy to hear from you. Please contact them and encourage them to support this positive solution.

    Committee Members:

    Shafer, David – Chairman
    Unterman, Renee S – Vice Chairman
    Harbison, Ed – Secretary
    Ligon, Jr., William T. – Ex-Officio
    Loudermilk, Barry – Ex-Officio

    Carter, Buddy – Member
    Ginn, Frank – Member
    Henson, Steve – Member
    Hill, Jack – Member
    Hooks, George – Member
    Jeffares, Rick – Member

    We also need to call or email our House and Senate members and tell them to support Kemp’s licensing bill when it comes to the floor.

    This is the kind of common sense, conservative legislation that Republicans have been promising for years. Kemp is finally doing it and he needs our help to make real change at the Capitol. Let’s show them that we support a POSITIVE SOLUTION that gets the bureaucrats off the backs of small businesses and professionals in Georgia!

    I don’t know about you guys; but I’m going.

      @David Farrar — “I don’t know about you guys; but I’m going.”
      __

      Well, have a good time!

      And, tell me, are you planning to use this opportunity to ask SoS Kemp to divulge the “yet to be determined consideration” you accused him of taking for “rubber stamping” a decision with which you disagreed?

    • Doubtful

      @David Farrar — “I don’t know about you guys; but I’m going.”
      __

      Hey, David, the event was yesterday. Would you care to report on how it went?

  • David Farrar

    Sec. Kemp made a decision he thought was right. I can ask no more of any person.

    We are in the process of appealing that decision, again, in a fair and open process, of which I will see to it it is accessible online, as was our ALC effort.

      @David Farrar — “in a fair and open process, of which I will see to it it is accessible online”
      __

      Does the process you are speaking of include the “Petition for Letters Rogatory” that Orly just filed in your name? If so, that document is already online, and in it, she implied that both ALJ Malihi and SoS took payoffs to rule as they did.

      Are you comfortable being associated with those sentiments, and do they strike you as an appropriate level of discourse in a “fair and open process”?

      • David Farrar

        It is “open”, which is always better than being behind closed doors. As to the fair bit: I certainly don’t think so, and I have said so. What Dr. Taitz thinks, does and says — Hey! that makes three things! There are songs to sing. There are feelings to feel. There are thoughts to think. A person can’t do three things at the same time. The singing is easy, it’s like syrup in my mouth. The thinking comes with the tune. That leaves only the feeling. I’m I right or am I right?

        I can singing the singing. I can think the thinking. But you’re not going to catch me feeling the feeling; no, sir…the Singing Detective by Dennis Potter, I believe.

    David:

    Having your attorney libel Judge Malihi and Secretary Kemp on your behalf is reprehensible. You are truly racist pond-scum to have her file this for you.

    The Fulton County Superior Court denied Mrs. Taitz’s pro hac vice application, yet you insist on having her represent you illegally in the Georgia courts.

    It will be comforting when the court sanctions you and your attorney for the frivolous and unethical behavior you insist on pursuing. Maybe they’ll do the right thing and lock up both of you for contempt of court.

    I hope the courts make your life really, really difficult, you disgusting pile of excrement.

    Traitor.

      Spoken just like the Nazi brown shirts would have attacked their opponents. So are you the new Nazi Obama brown shirts coming to get me?

      I got one message for you: COME AND GET ME SUCKERS!!!!!!

        Hey, Sucker Farrar:

        For a guy who’s so sensitive about being called a racist (while he runs his mouth spewing race-based bias), you sure are quick to accuse.

        It amazes me that your hate so far outweighs any rationality that indeed may have inhabited your brain at one time in your life.

        Yeah, right. Obama’s a Nazi. Letting idiot birthers like Farrar and Taitz sue him frivolously a hundred times in court, talking shit about him on the internet, lying about and slandering him on an hourly basis.

        Just like Hitler, right?

        Your accusations about Judge Malihi and Secretary Kemp have no basis in reality. Your insistence that Orly Taitz illegally file briefs on your behalf while she’s been denied pro hac vice status is not only an insult to our court system, but to Americans everywhere. Do you really think that Adolf Hitler would have let you get away with more than one mention of this seditious activity?

        Truth is, it’s you birthers who would have us living in a monotheistic, single-party, apartheid dictatorship – much like Nazi Germany or Saddam’s Iraq.

        Despite the obvious benefits of having large groups of birthers like you exterminated, I’m far too supportive of my USA and of your freedoms ever to consider any recourse beyond our Constitutionally-protected ones, like our ability to discuss what a fool you are on this forum, while letting you prove it to us repeatedly.

      David,

      We’re not coming to get you, you worthless scumbag–we’re just hoping that the court takes notice of the vile and frivolous trash that you and your lawyer keep vomiting forth and gives you a taste of the punishment you so richly deserve.

      Personally, I wish you would either learn about the Constitution and respect it or get the fuck out of this country instead of denigrating the Constitution and real Americans like President Obama. And take your incompetent Moldavian lawyer with you.

      Don’t worry, thought, because we’ll have the last laugh–the only thing that you have a chance of winning in court is sanctions and, given the numerous hateful and baseless accusations that you have made (personally and through your twit of a mail-order lawyer) I’m hoping that the courts wont treat you kindly from here on out…

      • David Farrar

        Dr. Orly Taitz does not represent me. The Superior Court of Fulton County knows this. She is now a pro se litigant as far as I can know. What she says on her own behalf is her own business. I am speaking for myself if these matter now.

  • Frank Bolivar

    they know she’s not admitted to practice there. They have no clue whether you’re still her client.. errr plaintiff… vicitim.

    So you’ve moved to proceed pro se? Hmmm haven’t seen that yet.

    She’s not nor can she all of a sudden become a pro se party in the “appeal” of the decision of the SoS. She’s cruising for sanctions and perhaps more. If you haven’t fired her, you sure better do so quickly, and formally, though it may be too late. She filed her latest POS with your name, and others, on it, which is on your behalf, whether you like it or think so or not.

    Connie Rhodes was smart enough to do so, and it saved her butt from being liable with Orly for sanctions. Get a clue.

    • David Farrar

      Frank,

      Judge Wright has formally refused to allow her to represent me in our appeal. I am proceeding pro se. The court knows Dr. Taitz no longer represents me.

    • Reality Check

      I think we should stop trying to help David Farrar. There is no comparison with Connie Rhodes. After Rhodes saw Orly in action for 10 minute she realized Orly was going to get her into big trouble. Rhodes then served her country in honorable fashion. Farrar is trying to skate on a technicality that may or may not work with Judge Wright. He can’t bring himself to fire Orly and that is just fine by me.

      • Frank Bolivar

        Actually, I was jerking his chain a little on the filing for admission pro se. He doesn’t have to do anything in that regard, but it’s true she’s still filing under his name, as if he is still her “client” and he still owns whatever she states in that regard.

    • Reality Check

      Orly posted a private communication with her client, David Farrar again:

      “Thank you Dr. Taitz.
      Let me take this opportunity to formally request your representation of my Georgia case if and when it arrives to the US Supreme Court.
      David Farrar”

      • Doubtful

        Oh dear. David seems to be digging himself deeper and deeper into the hole.

        Apparently he feels no need to distance himself from Orly’s contumacious and possibly libelous attacks. He hoped to slip by by emphasizing the fact that she doesn’t represent him in the Superior Court action. But now it’s obvious that that’s the case simply because she was denied PHV, not because David doesn’t wish to be associated with her vituperative approach to all who disagree with her.

        Lots of luck straddling that fence, David.

      • Reality Check

        Orly has such a fine record at the Supreme Court. I think David is made a good choice.

      • Doubtful

        But don’t forget, she knows some of the justices personally.

  • Slartibartfast

    David,

    It appears that your case is going to get consolidated with the others:

    http://thefogbow.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=88&t=7261&p=346706#p346696

    You and your worthless lawyer (and Tweedledee and Tweedledum) already lost to Jablonski’s empty chair (which was pretty humiliating–at least it would have been if birthers like you had any sense of shame), now that he’s participating again maybe you’ll lose and get sanctioned…

  • Doubtful

    Just to follow up, David’s appeal has been denied along with the companion cases. The judge ruled that Jablonski was right from the beginning when he claimed that there was no jurisdiction to challenge President Obama’s placement on the ballot.

    Looks like David’s million-dollar loophole didn’t mean what he thought it did.
