ARE DEFENDANTS TRYING TO RUN OUT THE CLOCK?
by Sharon Rondeau
(Dec. 26, 2012) — Atty. Orly Taitz announced on her website that one of her lawsuits, Noonan et al v. Bowen, is to be ruled upon by U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts after having been denied by Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy. The case asks for a stay of the certification of California’s 55 electoral votes pending an investigation into Obama’s original documentation.
The case names California Secretary of State Debra Bowen and Attorney General Kamala Harris as defendants by plaintiffs who were presidential candidates in 2012 and contends that Obama is using fraudulent identification, including a stolen Social Security number and fraudulent birth certificate.
Taitz said that Roberts can grant the application for stay, deny it, or refer it for a conference of the nine U.S. Supreme Court justices. “I have to wait and see,” she said.
In another case filed on December 13, Grinols et al v. Electoral College, a response was due on the part of Joe Biden, Obama, the U.S. Congress, the Electoral College, and other defendants with the Eastern District of California. “Typically they wait for the last moment,” Taitz told us during our interview earlier today. However, she later posted on her website that the defendants, through a U.S. attorney, have requested more time to submit their response.
The case is scheduled for oral argument on January 3, 2013, just three days before the electoral votes are scheduled to be certified in a joint session of Congress. Obama and Rep. Darrell Issa have been subpoenaed to appear. Judge Morrison England will preside.
Social Security Administration Commissioner Michael Astrue defaulted on a deadline in a case Taitz filed in Mississippi alleging racketeering and forgery against the Mississippi Democratic Party, Obama for America, Obama, Nancy Pelosi and others. Taitz has requested a default judgment and is awaiting a decision from Judge Henry Wingate. The case had sought a certified copy of Obama’s original Social Security number application, which was denied through a Freedom of Information Act request and subsequent lawsuit.
On Thursday at 9:00 p.m. PST, Taitz will appear on Dr. Monty’s radio show discussing her cases challenging Obama’s eligibility and identity documents, of which there currently are seven.
The mainstream media have failed to report on nearly all of the numerous cases brought over the last four years challenging the constitutional eligibility of Barack Hussein Obama to occupy the White House and the claim by a law enforcement investigation that his long-form birth certificate is a “computer-generated forgery.”
Update, December 27, 2012: Taitz has reported on her website that the defendants filed an opposition through two U.S. attorneys employed at taxpayer expense to her TRO to which she must respond by December 28.
In their brief, the U.S. attorneys state that “plaintiffs lack standing to bring their claims under Article III of the Constitution; and their claims are barred by the Speech or Debate Clause of the Constitution; and their claims are barred by the political question doctrine.” They state that only Congress has the ability to contest the counting of the electoral votes on January 4, 2013 and that “the entry of a temporary restraining order would throw the result of the 2012 Presidential election into doubt, disrupt the continuity of governance, and intrude into the internal matters entrusted by the Constitution to the United States Congress.”
The counting of the electoral votes was changed by statute earlier this month because January 6, 2013 falls on a Sunday.
On page 21 of the brief, the defendants’ attorneys state that “Whether or not the President is in possession of a valid social security card, selective service registration or any particular type of birth certificate is simply irrelevant to his eligibility for the Presidency under Article II, section 1 of the Constitution.” They also contend that “it is well settled that those born in the United States are considered natural born citizens.”
