In what can only be described as an unbelievable ruling, a Georgia judge has ruled Barack Obama can be on the ballot this year.
President Barack Obama’s name will remain on the Georgia primary ballot after a state law judge flatly rejected legal challenges that contend he can not be a candidate.
A Georgia judge rejected a "birther" challenge that claimed President Barack Obama was ineligible for the Georgia ballot.
In a 10-page order, Judge Michael Malihi dismissed one challenge
that contended Obama has a computer-generated Hawaiian birth
certificate, a fraudulent Social Security number and invalid U.S. identification papers. He
also turned back another that claimed the president is ineligible to be a candidate because
his father was not a U.S. citizen at the time of Obama's birth.
The findings by Malihi, a judge for the State Office of Administrative Hearings, go to Secretary of State Brian Kemp, who will make the final determination. Last month, at a hearing boycotted by Obama's lawyer, Malihi considered complaints brought by members of the so-called "birther" movement.
With regard to the challenge that Obama does not have legitimate birth and identification papers, Malihi said he found the evidence "unsatisfactory" and "insufficient to support plaintiffs' allegations."
A number of the witnesses who testified about the alleged fraud were never qualified as experts in birth records, forged documents and document manipulation and "none ... provided persuasive testimony," Malihi wrote.
Addressing the other claim that contends Obama cannot be a candidate because his father was never a U.S. citizen, Malihi said he was persuaded by a 2009 ruling by the Indiana Court of Appeals decision that struck down a similar challenge. In that ruling, the Indiana court found that children born within the U.S. are natural-born citizens, regardless of the citizenry of their parents.
Obama "became a citizen at birth and is a natural-born citizen," Malihi wrote. Accordingly, Obama is eligible as a candidate for the upcoming presidential primary in March, the judge said.
To call this ruling beyond belief would be an understatement. First, Obama and his legal team boycotted the proceedings. Unfortunately, the eligibility legal team might have made a strategic error in not simply accepting a default judgment.
According to the order that was issued, the Judge offered them that option but instead they insisted on a trial, which allowed the Judge to make certain rulings he would not have been able to make.
The ruling from the trial court is here. Hopefully it will be appealed and quickly, as the evidence in this case seems very strong.
Bobby C: Sebelius, the white house occupant's HSS Secretary today said there is nothing wrong with the regime's rule as it relates to religion -- she is also a Catholic.
So much for Catholic women doing the right thing.
I called and wrote the Archbishop today.
There is no backing down on this issue.
One freedom leaves, many more follow in rapid succession.
I will write the Pope as well.
Nanzi Pelosi should have been excommunicated a long time ago.
Ck this out:

I am not catholic, but I think that anyone who believes in abortion should be excommunicated from any church. The Pope should do it and be done. No warning, if she was believer she would know what the price is for shedding innocent blood.
KathleenSt...I did not realize that Sebelius was Catholic also...need to put her in for ex-communication also. My uncle (a deacon) is buddies with Cardinal Sean O'Malley of Boston and he is on this big time. we shall see what happens.
but BHO is the sitting President and unfortunately there's not much we can do about short of the election
Wrong, any unconstitutional act is illegal. It does not matter if the President does it. He is still bound by the Constitution and if the Congress, judiciary and/or the DoJ does not do their job. It is up to we the people. Why do we always think we have to follow every illegal act that Congress passes or the President decrees?
Thank you Thomas.
Best thing to do is keep pumping "nullification" legislation in to your state legislature. It is gaining a lot of traction in states under Tenth amendment.
Gerald: I have a news flash for you. We are already, and have been since the 1860's, under martial law. Drop me a note. I'll explain it. email@example.com
You mean that is when the first nail was driven in liberty's coffin.
Once again all the loud barking of our freedom, the changes bho an leftist are doing to us is still behind the fence they built around us. That is all for nothing unless we the people are willing to open the gate now and fight our enemies and TAKE our Nation and Freedom back!
Our true Oath Keepers for the most part are still thinking of waiting to see what happens next. Now you know the fears electors are faced with.
The Democratic Party is unknowingly becoming the communist party of America.
I think they know they are part of the USof A communist party. All part of their strategy to take America down and control every aspect of our lives.
