Federal Judge Dismisses Birther's Obama Case

CNN reports that yesterday, Thursday, a federal judge in California dismissed a birther's case that claimed President Barack Obama cannot be president because he was not born in the U.S.A., birther misinformation that must be repeatedly debunked by folks who use logic. "Birther" is the name the media's given to these people who refuse to accept that Obama was born in Hawaii.
The lawsuit represented the claim by the so-called "birthers" movement that Obama was not born in Hawaii - despite a birth certificate to the contrary - or that if he was, his citizenship was invalidated by living overseas as a child. (CNN)
O.K. The judge ruled correctly, but you know this will not stop the birther craziness. See October 14 video interview below with birther leader Orly Taitz on the Joy Behar show. Behar tries to talk sense to this woman to no avail, and I think this interview happened the day after a Columbus, Ga., judge slapped Taitz with a $20,000 fine for bringing a frivolous lawsuit there based on her obsession with Obama's citizenship.

I think the hearing Taitz is talking about in the video below is the case the judge dismissed yesterday because she refers to a Judge Carter and that's who dismissed the case, per CNN.
In a 30-page ruling, U.S. District Judge David O. Carter of California said his court lacked the jurisdiction to rule on a case intended to unseat a sitting president.
(Behar says they are at a "checkmate" in the interview. I'm sure she meant stalemate.)



I wonder if Lou Dobbs has heard this news.

Hey there!

I haven't been by here in a while! I see you are busy, busy, busy!!

The whole issue about Obama's citizenship is preposterous because even IF he had been born in Indonesia or some other country, the laws here stipulate that children born to U.S. citizens are U.S. citizens. His mother is a U.S. citizen by birth.

It wouldn't matter where she gave birth!

The language "U.S. born" is what is the main issue for these protestors. They are attempting to add to the citizenship requirement of U.S. presidents. Being a U.S. citizen by birth is just not enough for them. I believe that they want to split hairs on this just because the president has one parent who is a foreigner...and who is b-b-b-blaaaaack.

Peace, blessings and DUNAMIS!

I wonder if a lawsuit can be brought against the leadership of this movement? I feel that they are really wasting the taxpayers money with the pursuit. It is obvious that they are stuck on this idea and they will be that way. Which is fine with me-that's their choice of beliefs. Their constant court appearances cost money. When does the legal system say STOP IT! It would seem the fine isn't enough.
