CARTER SAYS REPEATEDLY THE CASE WILL GO FORWARD
Reported in person by Vivian Rixen
(Sept. 8, 2009: Santa Ana, California) — In a case watched intensely throughout America, Federal District Judge David. O. Carter, of the Southern Division, held a Motion hearing for the case Pamela Barnett, et al., vs. Barack H. Obama, et al., pleaded by Attorney Orly Taitz, esq., and the U.S. Attorney General, CA District, respectively.
The hearing finally took place about 11 A.M., local time, due to a change in rooms, ordered by Judge Carter to accomodate the large numbers of visitors.
Carter appears to want the case to ‘play out’. He said that the American people are surrounded by rumors of their President and should not have to live with this… Additionally, the military who are risking their lives deserve to know they have a legitimate Commander-In-Chief. Carter repeated this about 3 times during the circa 60 minute hearing.
Judge Carter also went on to say that this case should not be dragged out for months or years and people deserve to know, to which the audience responded with rounds of applause.
Dr. Taitz attempted to have Lucas Daniel Smith heard by the judge, and have his testimony on record. Dr. Taitz flew him out for the hearing, and told the court that he was receiving death threats. In addition she mentioned to the court that another person with information about the case was found dead. Judge Carter, however, who wanted to follow proper procedures recommended his deposition be taken this week instead.
To this the U.S. Attorneys objected. To which Judge Carter responded, saying, “Why would you have a problem with his deposition taken while he’s in town, I would think you would like to know where you stand on this, to know what your dealing with…!” (Carter said this about 3 times to the Gov attorneys).
The Government Attorneys, from Los Angeles, had no real excuse for not wanting to take his deposition, they simply did not want to take the deposition of the guy who submitted the Kenya BC !
Dr. Taitz insisted on a prompt deposition, out of fear for the life of Mr. Smith. Members of the audience, later speculated, that it appeared the U.S. Attorneys wanted as much time as necessary for those who would want to harm Mr. Smith.
Then Judge Carter mentioned he had a mafia drug trial in December and wanted to get the Obama case over quickly as the America people and military deserve an answer! So he scheduled a January-February pre-trial?
Taitz’s supporters showed surprise and gratitude when they heard Carter schedule the trial for January. Contrariwise, the Gov. attorneys were almost speechless. And then voiced an objection to the date of the trial, to which Judge Carter responded: “I can be here at 7 AM or have court at 6 PM or 7 PM; I will make myself available ‘at any hour of the day’ and read motions on the weekends, I have no problem with that.”
The Government attorneys had filed a Motion to Dismiss, based on rule 12B, on Friday, September 4th. During the hearing, today, the US Attorneys attempted to present the Motion for hearing; but the judge refused, saying that they had to observe proper procedures, and file it downstairs (in the Federal Court House), for it to be be logged in, so as for it to be forwarded to him upstairs in the proper manner.
Judge Carter showed noticeable annoyance at the US Attorneys for filing a Motion to Dismiss in such proximity to this hearing; and ruled that this Motion would be heard on Oct 5th.. However, Carter said that 12B Motions for Dismissal are not always effected, and that he did not expect that such a motion would result in dismissal of this case, though he would follow proper procedure and hear it.
Judge Carter also asked Dr. Taitz to reduce the number of individuals cited as defendants; and seemingly indicated to Taitz that Barack Hussein Obama would be sufficient.
No parties for defense were there. Cameras were not allowed in the Court Room.
It remains to be seen, with the fairness of Judge Carter so evident, whether the US Attorneys will move for a change of venue, to get the case put in the hands of a Judge more amenable to the Obama Administration.
As one American citizen in the audience later remarked: “Carter has given me and probably millions of us little American’s a restored faith in America and our Justice System/Judges.”
