Judge Dismisses Case Against Obama’s Birth As Nail In Coffin For Cause

September 16, 2009

US (ChattahBox) – The case opened by US soldier Capt. Connie Rhodes has been thrown out by U.S. District Court Judge Clay Land, and Rhodes and her attorney have been threatened with sanctions if refiled.

Judge Land made it clear that he will refuse all future ‘frivolous’ lawsuits in this matter, and has chastised both Rhodes and her attorney Orly Taitz, who is a leader within the much ridiculed ‘birthers movement’.

According to his case summary judgment:

“(Rhodes) has presented no credible evidence and has made no reliable factual allegations to support her unsubstantiated, conclusory allegations and conjecture that President Obama is ineligible to serve as president of the United States.

“Instead, she uses her complaint as a platform for spouting political rhetoric, such as her claims that the president is ‘an illegal usurper, an unlawful pretender, [and] an unqualified imposter.’”

He also pointed out that in the various primaries, the campaign, and the final election there was plenty of time for people to come up with credible evidence against President Obama’s birthplace.

Rhodes has been accused in the past of using her case as a means of escaping her tour duties in Iraq, though this is doubtfully the actual reasons behind her lawsuit. However, the case is now over, and she faces legal consequences if she files within the same district again.

    This is by no stretch of the imagination “the nail in the coffin of these lawsuits”. There are over 100 practicing attorneys (including me) preparing very similar actions at this very moment. Dripping water will eventually wear away stone. Obama is NOT Constitutionally legal to serve and we WILL prove our case and see that he is removed from office. Until people understand the applicable law and know that “birthplace” is only one of many legal requirements to make a person a “natural born Citizen”, folks need to remain silent on this issue. Being born in the U.S.A. does NOT automatically qualify a person as a “natural born Citizen”, the law, on which Senator Obama voted “yea”, also requires BOTH PARENTS MUST BE U.S. CITIZENS IN ORDER FOR THEIR THEIR CHILD TO BECOME A “NATURAL BORN CITIZEN”. FACT : Obama’s father was here on a student visa, he was NEVER a Citizen, therefore Obama CANNOT meet the legal test. End of story.

    Ernest – So far the ‘Birther’s Movement’ have done nothing but create widespread disdain, and not just from those on the Left. You won’t win given the most vocal leaders of your movement have been so widely discredited and mocked, but by all means, keep trying. It will be a long four years for you, and I doubt it will prove fruitful.

    This is all just propaganda from those who are terrified of the changes this country is facing. We have had criminals in the White House the last eight years..where were your laws and convictions then? But throw in a president with a father born in Kenya, and it’s time to rally.

    Give me a break.

    @ernest: Are any of those practicing attorneys any good? It’s pretty obvious that *you* aren’t, any moron can see that the “birth certificate” the birthers are circulating is a fake.

    And, in fact, the law most certainly does NOT require both parents to be US citizens (or a least it didn’t when Barak Obama was born).

    Your inability to grasp the facts of the case indicate that you are not qualified to practice law in the US. Where did you take your bar exams? Nigeria? Took them by email, did you?

    Face it: We have our first Black President, and he’s smarter, better educated, better looking, and a damn-sight better President than the half-chimp crossbreed Texan that preceded him in office. If you don’t like it, move to Cuba.

    “There are over 100 practicing attorneys (including me) preparing very similar actions”. Hahahahahaha. Practicing what? Dentistry?

    Ernie, me lad:
    Better familiarize yourself with Rule 11(b).

    The birthers, the tea baggers, the screamers, and the deathers continued extreme minority presence will become tiresome to mainstream America, if it has not already done so. To all the birthers in La, La Land, it is on you to prove to all of us that your assertion is true, if there are people who were there and support your position then show us the video (everyone has a price), either put up or frankly shut-up. I heard Orly Taitz, is selling a tape (I think it’s called “Money, Lies and Video tape”). She is from Orange County, CA, now I know what the mean when they say “behind the Orange Curtain”, when they talk about Orange County, the captial of Conspiracy Theories. You know Obama has a passport, he travel abroad before he was a Senator, but I guess they were in on it. In my opinion the Republican Party has been taken over the most extreme religious right (people who love to push their beliefs on others while trying to take away the rights of those they just hate) and that’s who they need to extract from their party if they real want to win. Good Luck, because as they said in WACO, “We Ain’t Coming Out”. I heard that she now wants to investigate the “Republican 2009 Summer of Love” list: Assemblyman, Michael D. Duvall (CA), Senator John Ensign (NV), Senator Paul Stanley (TN), Governor Mark Stanford (SC), Board of Ed Chair, and Kristin Maguire AKA Bridget Keeney (SC).

    “And, in fact, the law most certainly does NOT require both parents to be US citizens (or a least it didn’t when Barak Obama was born).”

    Old Man, could you please cite me this law – I’m looking for such a law so I can dispute a comment similar to Ernest’s on another blog and for the life of me, I cannot find such a law!

    And while I agree with most everything you said, he is most definiately better looking- I’d be real careful about touting Obama as a smart cookie – just cause he can read from the teleprompter doesn’t make him genius. I think the jury is still out on him, but I’m still holding out hope! Also, I’m a little dubious about his education since he won’t release his records….I won’t release mine either, but then I didn’t do very well in school – I hope that isn’t the reason he won’t release his!

    Re: “Being born in the U.S.A. does NOT automatically qualify a person as a “natural born Citizen”,

    Actually, that is what Natural Born means. The term “naturalize” comes from Natural Born. In naturalization a person who was not born in the country is made like someone who was born in the country, someone who was natural born. The term Natural Born was in use in the American colonies and in Britain before the Revolution, and it simply meant someone who was born in the colony or in Britain.

    As the Wall Street Journal commented: “Some birthers imagine that there is a difference between being a “citizen by birth” or a “native citizen” on the one hand and a “natural born” citizen on the other. “Eccentric” is too kind a word for this notion, which is either daft or dishonest. All three terms are identical in meaning.”

    There have been many cases questioning President Obama’s eligibility. one of them was not dismissed and is moving forward with discovery. This is the order setting a scheduling conference and allowing discovery:


    There is a virtual media blackout on the issue when progress is being made by those who question President obama’s Eligibility. Please do your own research before letting the main stream media determine your facts. Googling Obama Birth Certificate IS NOT ENOUGH. You will have to also google the Judge’s name: David Carter. Adding MSM to the google search will show sites that notice the media blackout as well.

    I don’t know what is the truth about President Obama’s eligibility is, but I can spot a media blackout when I see one.

    2. DNC Chair Pelosi failed or neglected to vet her candidate (fingers pointing —><—) and fraudulently misled 48 state election officials who put Obama on the ballots. And we are to believe Obama was only going along for the ride to see how far he could get, before getting caught.

    3. A procedural error by VP Cheney in the counting of the Electoral College votes, opens door to Congress members second chance to challenge.
    See 3 U.S.C. § 15 Counting electoral votes in Congress
    “Upon such reading of any such certificate or paper, the President of the Senate shall call for objections, if any.” Watch: 2008 ELECTION 2009 Electoral College Vote Count
    Observe: Following the electoral vote count at about the 27:00 minute mark, what failed to occur?
    I guess by fraud, ignorance, malice, corruption or conspiracy anyone can become a US President. Hang onto your chairs, and enjoy the ride.

    Re: “A procedural error by VP Cheney in the counting of the Electoral College votes, opens door to Congress members second chance to challenge.”

    It wasn’t a procedural error. Congress had adopted the rule that if anyone wanted to object, he or she would file the intent to object beforehand. There were none who had filed an intent to object.

    Re: “one of them was not dismissed and is moving forward with discovery.”

    That one also has now been dismissed. (http://www.scribd.com/doc/21808122/Judge-Carter-Ruling-on-MTD)
