Americans have finally made the acquaintance of a judge who is willing to adhere to the demands of the Constitution and the laws he swore an oath to uphold upon taking office.
Georgia State Office of Administrative Hearings Judge Michael M. Malihi ruled this week that, as stated in Georgia law, “every candidate for federal office shall meet the constitutional and statutory qualifications for holding the office being sought.” (1)
In his ruling, Mahili stated quite simply that “the court finds that the defendant (Barack Obama) 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.” (1)
The suits which resulted in Malihi’s ruling were brought in response to Obama’s inclusion on the 2012 Georgia State primary ballot. And one of these complaints in particular might cause problems for the acting President of the United States.
In October of last year, attorney Van R. Irion of the Liberty Legal Foundation filed lawsuits against the Democrat Party both in Tennessee and at the federal level, “…requesting injunctions prohibiting the Party from certifying that Obama is Constitutionally qualified to run for the office of President in the 2012 election.” (2)
It was this same complaint that comprises the Georgia case for which a hearing is scheduled on January 26th.
Irion’s action has nothing whatever to do with the validity of the birth certificate Obama’s minions posted online last year. And the attorney doesn’t care whether Obama was born in Hawaii or not.
“The only fact relevant to this case,” says Irion, “is the fact that the defendant’s father was not a U.S. citizen.” It is Irion’s contention that as Obama’s father was not born in the US and was never a citizen, Obama himself cannot meet the Constitutional standard requiring that a president be “natural born.” (1)
Irion cites an 1875 Supreme Court ruling in which the court stated:
The Constitution does not in words say who shall be natural-born citizens. Resort must be had elsewhere to ascertain that. At common law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were natives or natural-born citizens, as distinguished from aliens or foreigners. (3)
If Irion is successful in obtaining an injunction preventing the Democrat Party from certifying Obama on the Georgia ballot, it will also act to prevent his Party certification and therefore appearance on ANY state ballot nationwide. (2)
Obama has spent a million bucks in legal fees to keep his personal history from the American public. Maybe this will be the one that gets him.
