Posted on 03/13/2009 1:49:01 PM PDT by barnieca
I was at the proceedings today for Keyes v. Bowen. Keyes contends that California Secretary of State Bowen did not qualify Obama to be on the ballot for POTUS.
Hon. Michael P. Kenny presided and upheld his Tentative Ruling.
Gary Kreep, Esq. represented Plaintiffs.
Peter Kraus Esq. represented defendant Secretary of State Bowen.
Michael J. Strumwasser, Esq. represented defendant Barack Obama.
Pro Hac Vice Robert F. Bauer, Esq. was a no show.
Proceedings began about 9am at the Superior Court of California, Dept. 31 as scheduled.
Kreep, Kraus and Strumwasser all spoke. Kreep made the argument that its the SOSs job to qualify Presidential candidates and Strumwasser and Kraus argued that it wasnt the SOSs job to qualify federal candidates that it was the U.S. Congresss job to qualify the POTUS.
Judge Kenny obviously agreed with this agrument from looking at his ruling. Kenny made a comment in court along the lines of a state SOS does not have the power to overturn a ruling of POTUS qualification by the U.S. Congress. (not a direct quote) This brings us back to the argument that the SOSs should have checked qualifications before placing POTUS candidates on the ballot. If the SOS does not do the investigation of a candidate and the U.S. Congress does not do the investigation of candidate then any person qualified or NOT can be appointed POTUS by the U.S. Congress, to include illegal aliens under 35 y.o. that had just migrated to America. (Is Hugo Chavez going to be our next POTUS?)
As Californias chief elections officer, the Secretary of State is responsible for overseeing all state and federal elections, this is Debra Bowens statement on the SOS CA website http://www.sos.ca.gov/elections/best-practices.htm
Bowens statement on the website contradicts her attorneys and Obamas attorney arguments that it is NOT her job as SOS to qualify candidates for POTUS.
With this statement and ruling, Kenny is saying it is fine to Usurp the POTUS Constitutional Requirements in State elections and it is up to the U.S. Congress to find the mistake.
Kreep is already working on the appeal.
There will never be a Democrat-appointed judge in this country that’ll rule against 0bama in any circumstance.
We are no longer one nation. The rule of law means nothing to libs.
The Constitution is dead. God save our Republic.
NO judge is going to hear this case...ever.
That's not hyperbole or polemics, either. No regard for the rule of law is inherent in their worldview. The utterances of elite intellectuals are all that matters, not the writings of stodgy old white guys in history who obviously CAN'T know as much as the modern day elites.
“The Court further finds that the two categories of documents petitioners seek are vague, overbroad, and are of no relevance to this litigation.
Petitioners demand access to all of President Obamas academic and housing records.
However, the relevance of such records is not established.
The issues raised in the First Amended Petition concern the duties, if any, of the respondents to demand proof of natural born citizenship of a candidate for President.
Petitioners have not shown that any of the documents sought could assist in answering this question.”
Did they ask for the vault birth certificate? Sounds like the judge was saying they over reached and asked for too much. The judge didn’t seem to squash the case because of standing. Right?
Judged said information requested was:
I don’t know how relevance would not have been established with the request of the vault birth certificate unless it wasn’t requested.
Thank you for the update. I appreciate it.
Here is a link for the tentative ruling that was upheld today.
Every despicable decision that pushes this controversy further and further under the rug of socialism is another nail in the coffin in which we are allowing the US Constitution to be buried.
It is sad that the judiciary refuses to do its job, and continues to find ways to ensure that 0bama doesn’t have to answer to the people regarding his origins and his background.
IF we allow this to go unresolved, then we deserve the government we get...all of it.
It’s time to take back the country.
As a reminder, Gary Kreep of the United States Justice Foundation, is representing Keyes pro bono.
His website is wwww.usjf.net if you can spare some cash for justice.
The man must enjoy losing.
Gary Kreep has won lawsuits in defending the Minutemen and to require Planned Parenthood to report incidents of STDs in children, just to name a couple.
You can go to www.usjf.net to get more info. I believe donations to his foundation are tax deductible.
When the truth comes out, and it will, there will be hell to pay for our legislators for allowing this to occur. Everyone of them should be brought up on charges for what they’ve have spinelessly have allowed to happen. Who in the senate/congress is potentially using this info for their own self interest? Because you know someone knows, and has probably made it known that they know. There is no more “we the people”, only us vs. them. Useless courts, useless representatives and a nation dying on the vine before our very eyes.
Remember, our own stodgy old white guys were sitting in office watching all these things happen. we have been stabbed in the back by our own congressional reps, and that is the first issue that needs to be corrected.
