“THE COURTS HAVE GONE WILD”
by Sharon Rondeau
(Apr. 11, 2012) — The Post & Email has spoken this morning with Nicholas Purpura, one of the plaintiffs in the ballot challenge heard in Mercerville, NJ by Judge Jeff Masin on April 10, 2012 about his reaction to the judge’s ruling against them.
At approximately 7:30 EDT last evening Judge Jeff Masin contacted via email Purpura’s attorney, Mario Apuzzo, to advise him that “As far as I’m concerned, Obama was born in Hawaii,” stating that he would be ruling against the arguments of the ballot challenge.
Apuzzo has filed an appeal of the decision in a 32-page brief.
Obama’s attorney, Alexandra Hill, admitted during the hearing that Obama had submitted no paper documentation of his identity, birthplace or citizenship and agreed that the images released on the internet would not be used “as evidence.”
“When it comes to the argument of ‘natural born citizen,’ no one will beat Mario’s argument,” Purpura said. “It’s irrefutable.”
Masin had prohibited certain information to be entered into the court record because of questions about whether “printouts off the Internet are legitimate fodder for a court hearing.” Obama has presented only images to “prove” that he was allegedly born in Hawaii, and Masin refused to consider whether or not an online image is sufficient proof. “As far as I’m concerned,” Masin said, “Obama was born in Hawaii.”
Purpura said that “under the New Jersey constitution, you can only put someone on the ballot who is eligible. In all the cases, they’re shirking their responsibility and leaving the American people out in the cold.”
The Cold Case Posse of Maricopa County, AZ stated that there is “probable cause” to believe that the images made available to the public bearing the name “Barack Hussein Obama” are forgeries. “We don’t know who he is,” Purpura said, referring to Obama. “Is he above the law? It appears that every judge is so afraid of this administration that they’re disregarding all the rules.”
Purpura reported that in court yesterday, Judge Masin refused to address the case of Minor v. Happersett, which states that at least one definition of “natural born Citizen” is a person born in the Untied States to two U.S.-citizen parents. “They’re disregarding our laws,” Purpura said. “The courts have gone wild. They’re issuing opinions which contradict the Supreme Court of the United States!”
Purpura stated that the New Jersey constitution, Article II, Section 3a, specifically says that the Secretary of State has an “obligation to the people to place someone on the ballot that is eligible.” Purpura said that it is the job of a court to define what “natural born Citizen” means.
Purpura reported that Judge Masin had called Georgia Administrative Law Judge Michael Malihi, who had declared Obama eligible to be on that state’s ballot in early February, “a friend.” Purpura at that point said, “It was a predetermined decision.”
