Megyn Kelly Neil Abercrombie panel biased and uninformed, Fox News fair & Balanced?, Fox biased, Boobs on news shows

Megyn Kelly Neil Abercrombie panel biased and uninformed, Fox News fair & Balanced?, Fox biased, Boobs on news shows

I held off of letting Megyn Kelly have it until yesterday even though she had made some stupid, uninformed comments about the Obama eligibility issues. She was undoubtedly influenced by the pontificating, bloviator Bill O’Reilly. She crossed the line a few days ago when she interviewed two biased and uninformed panelists regarding the Governor Neil Abercrombie remarks about Obama’s birth and birth certificate.

First of all, Fox News touts being “fair and balanced.” This show was one of the most unfair and unbalanced that I have viewed. It almost gave MSNBC credibility. The guests were:

Dan Gerstein, president of Gotham Ghostwriters, a Democrat Strategist and clearly a Orwellian spin meister for Obama.

Rich Lowry, editor of the National review. All he did was regurgitate the standard lines from the left.

Not only did Megyn Kelly not ask probing journalistic questions such as:

 Why has Obama, for over 2 years, employed numerous private and government attorneys to avoid presenting a legitimate birth certificate and college records?

Isn’t Obama ineligible due to not being a natural born citizen? His father was Kenyan/British. The founding fathers had to be grandfathered in to be eligible. Senate resolution 511 stated that McCain had 2 US Citizen parents.

The Certification of Live birth, COLB, placed on the internet. Do we have proof it was issued by the state of Hawaii? Isn’t the COLB, as Lou Dobbs stated, just a piece of paper that refers to another piece of paper? Is it possible to get a COLB and not be born in Hawaii?

There are obviously more questions that could be asked. Not only did Megyn Kelly not ask real questions, she joined in the “feeding frenzy” and lent credence to comments made by her biased panelists. This was one of the more disgusting displays I have ever witnessed on TV!

And Megyn Kelly is a law school graduate. She referred to comments made by FactCheck.org and to birth announcements in newspapers as evidence.

LTC Lakin incarceration, Surrender to Obama?, Nuts!, General Anthony McAuliffe, Defeat enemy, Free Lakin

“Why has Obama, for over 2 years, employed numerous private and government attorneys to avoid presenting a legitimate birth certificate and college records?”…Citizen Wells and millions of concerned Americans

“Nuts!”…General Anthony McAuliffe response to Germans December 22nd, 1944

Nuts! is also my response to the enemy. The Obama camp and those that fight to keep a usurper in the White House and ignore the US Constitution.

I next want to point out a couple of interesting things that came out of the LTC Terry Lakin court martial.

First, LTC Lakin’s efforts to get answers and his encounters with congressmen.

“He testified that he started to have concerns about the Constitution during the primary elections, when he was stationed at Aberdeen Proving Grounds. He learned that there was controversy as to the natural-born-citizen status of both major political parties’ general election candidates.  He said Senator McCain provided everything he could to address his status, including a birth certificate with the doctor’s name and hospital’s name.  He compared that with

the lack of scrutiny that Senator Obama received.  He had questions about the image of a certificate of live birth on the Internet and relatives stating they were present at his birth in Kenya.  He said he had an open mind, but he was skeptical.  One candidate went through scrutiny, but there was a lack of information as to the other.

Mr. Puckett pressed, “Why were you so interested in this?”  I think he expected the answer to be because of the oath of office, but LTC Lakin instead gave an answer about reading newspapers.  LTC Lakin testified that after the election, he became “extremely concerned.”  He said the issue wasn’t about politics or anything else (probably an implicit denial of racism) but the Supreme Law of the Land.  He stated that he “wanted a valid Commander-in-Chief.”  He testified that after the election, he was no longer comfortable with being selected for deployment.  He was “concerned that the Constitution wasn’t being followed.” 

He believes his “oath as an officer is to protect and defend the Constitution.”  He believed questions about the President’s eligibility “may weaken the Constitution.”  He said he doesn’t know if the President is ineligible and he doesn’t believe that anyone can know.

Neal Puckett asked, “What did you do as a soldier.”  LTC Lakin said his “sought out advice” from his command and from his friends.  He contacted legal assistance at Aberdeen Proving Grounds, who said they would research the issue and get back to him, but then they would never return his calls.  He talked to his  commander and supervisor who said there was an issue and there were questions, but they did not know what to do to answer them.  He then filed an Article 138 complaint.  He was asking, “Please, someone in my command, tell me there’s not an issue about illegal orders.”  He submitted the Article 138 complaint to his company commander and asked him to forward it.  The reply he received back was that his Article 138 complaint was deficient, so the Army didn’t have to answer it.

LTC Lakin then wrote letters to his two Senators and Congressman.  One Senator didn’t reply.  One said the issue had been raised “and Twittered about and been found not to be an issue.”  His Congressman forwarded his letter to Military Affairs.”
“LTC Lakin then became aware he was “on the short-list for deployment.  This greatly concerned me.”  He went to Capitol Hill for face-to-face meetings with one Congressman and high-level staffers.  He was told that the issue was a concern, but the media ridiculed it, so they let it go.”

http://www.caaflog.com/2010/12/16/lakin-court-martial-day-two-part-v/

Second, Neil Puckett uses the word Obsesses about LTC Lakin’s concern over presidential eligibility. I assume that Mr. Puckett is merely trying to protect his client.

“Dr. Lakin innocently and naively thought” that disobeying orders “was the only choice he had.”  Mr. Puckett told the members that “the Army didn’t fail him.  The Chief of Staff didn’t fail him.  He had questions and concerns.  And it became an obsession with him.”  He compared LTC Lakin to someone with obsessive -compulsive disorder.  Mr. Puckett then explained that he obsesses over people who don’t board airplanes and “get their butts in the seat” quickly enough. But Dr. Lakin’s obsession was the President’s eligibility.  “And it ate away at him.”

http://www.caaflog.com/2010/12/17/lakin-court-martial-finale-part-iii/

I will address the word “obsess” used by Neil Puckett.

“But Dr. Lakin’s obsession was the President’s eligibility.”

Obsession is a rather odd word to use for survival instincts and duty.

I will try to write real slow so that the folks on the left and mainstream media can understand. Folks like Maureen Dowd.

Oxygen
Water
Food
Shelter
Safety

The above list of items fall under the heading of basic survival. Do you speak in terms of being obsessed about breathing? Drinking water, etc.?

The list is prioritized with safety last, but still crucial to survival. Referring to presidential eligibility as an obsession is like calling breathing an obsession. What good is breathing if you are not safe in your home, safe from unwarranted arrest or nuclear attack.

Now Congress.

I personally was involved in 2008 in trying to get the attention of three congressmen as well as NC election officials. I prepared an article on what a Natural Born Citizen is and it was made into a video. We had a friend of the family of Ron Paul as an intermediary. Here is the response that we got from Ron Paul:

Late in December of 2008, Congressman Paul was asked if he would
challenge the Electoral votes in Congress. Here is his response:

“If I did that, I would be laughed out of Congress.”

You probably know where this is leading. The US Congress let the whole country down in 2009 when they failed to challenge Obama’s eligibility. This led to the patriot LTC Terry Lakin being court martialed. We are going to hold Congress accountable.

I, by God, had better not hear another congressman quote Twitter or Factcheck.org.

Let’s roll!

“Why has Obama, for over 2 years, employed numerous private and government attorneys to avoid presenting a legitimate birth certificate and college records?”…Citizen Wells and millions of concerned Americans

And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed
–if all records told the same tale–then the lie passed into
history and became truth. “Who controls the past,” ran the
Party slogan, “controls the future: who controls the present
controls the past.”…George Orwell, “1984″

Not every item of news should be published: rather must
those who control news policies endeavor to make every item
of news serve a certain purpose.”… Joseph Goebbels

As reported here yesterday:
“The Citizen Wells Citizen News site has a new page devoted to Obama eligibility information and lawsuits. This is an effort to organize numerous articles and information on the subject as well as introduce information to a new audience or an old audience with clearer vision.”

http://citizenwells.com/obama-eligibility/

As part of this process, I have been revisiting the early history of the Obama eligibity issues and in particular the COLB that was posted on several pro Obama sites. Two of the mouthpieces of the Obama camp, Wikipedia and FactCheck.org will be presented as examples of Orwellian, Nazi Germany type propaganda and the far left agenda of “the end justifies the means.”

Here is just a snippet of the propaganda from Wikipedia:
“conspiracy theories.

The Obama campaign released his birth certificate, certified by the Hawaii Department of Health, and posted a scanned image of it online. The posted certificate states that Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, on August 4, 1961.[1] The certificate also states, “This copy serves as prima facie evidence of the fact of birth in any court proceeding”. Frequent arguments of those questioning Obama’s eligibility are that he has not released a photocopy of his “original” birth certificate, and that the use of the term “certification of live birth” on the document means it is not equivalent to one’s “birth certificate”. These arguments have been debunked numerous times by media investigations,[10] every judicial forum that has addressed the matter, and Hawaiian government officials—a consensus of whom have concluded that the certificate released by the Obama campaign is indeed his official birth certificate.[11] Asked about this, Hawaiian Department of Health spokeswoman Janice Okubo stated that Hawaii “does not have a short-form or long-form certificate”.[12] Moreover, the director of her Department has confirmed that the state “has Sen. Obama’s original birth certificate on record in accordance with state policies and procedures.”

The paragraph above is loaded with Orwellian lies and misinformation.

Congress and the US Supreme Court will be held accountable. I will be making a followup call with Senator Richard Burr’s office this week. I hope to simplify the presentation of information regarding the pseudo birth certificate and get their attention.

My article on the truth about the COLB wil be presented soon. The intent is not to replicate other efforts or reinvent the wheel, but to present a simplified summary that even a congressman can understand.

Congress acted on misinformation and lies in 2008 2009, Obama eligibility, Congressmen better pay attention now

Congress acted on misinformation and lies in 2008 2009, Obama eligibility, Congressmen better pay attention now

“Why has Obama, for over 2 years, employed numerous private and government attorneys to avoid presenting a legitimate birth certificate and college records?”…Citizen Wells and millions of concerned Americans

I don’t always reveal all that I am thinking about or working on. I do continue to support LTC Terry Lakin as well as uphold the US Constitution. This blog, as often stated, is a group effort. Major players in the Obama eligibility issues send me info on a regular basis. A recent one was a reminder that Richard Burr, senator from NC, made foolish, uninformed statements regarding Obama’s eligibility. As a resident and lifelong citizen of NC, I feel an obligation to set the record straight with Mr. Burr. I intend to do so.

As reported by The American Patriot Foundation.

“Certain Members of Congress based their claims that Obama was born in Hawaii almost entirely upon an online document (a Certifi-cation of Live Birth – not to be confused with an original birth certificate) – which the State of Hawaii has refused to verify as a state-issued document. In some cases, Congressmen out-sourced research on the eligibility issue to Senator Obama’s office, or to Obama-friendly websites such as FactCheck.org. or friendly news-papers. Yet with regard to McCain, the Senate Judiciary Committee held a hearing to try to determine his “natural born” status and approved a non-binding resolution affirming his eligibility. Senator McCain produced a long-form birth certificate (with hospital and attending doctor’s name) after being subjected to relentless ques-tions about his eligibility. Senator Obama co-sponsored this legisla-tion, but never produced a copy of his original birth certificate, and to this day, refuses to provide the name of a hospital of birth or an attending physician’s name to corroborate his claimed birth in Ha-waii.”

“Richard Burr:

Statement: “It is my understanding that President-Elect Obama
has released an official copy of his birth certificate. Since
he was born in 1961 in Hawaii, he is eligible under the Constitution
to run for and hold the office of President of the United
States. In addition, President-elect Obama’s birth records
have been certified and validated by the Hawaii Department
of Health as well as by experts from the University of Pennsylvania.”
Editorial comment: A Certification of Live Birth is NOT an
original birth certificate. No one from the the University of
Pennsylvania has ever certified and validated Obama’s original
birth certificate or any birth record from the Hawaiian Dept of
Health.”

To: Senator Burr
From: Citizen Wells

I will be contacting your office to inform you of this article and my intentions. I believe that you are an honorable man and a decent senator who, like so many others in Congress and the nation, were fooled by a slick Orwellian propaganda machine. However, that does not relieve you of your obligation to learn the truth and follow your oath to defend the US Constitution.

Senator Burr, first ponder the simple question:

“Why has Obama, for over 2 years, employed numerous private and government attorneys to avoid presenting a legitimate birth certificate and college records?”

Next, read the rest of the article quoted above.

http://www.scribd.com/doc/42576597/LTC-Lakin-A-Sampling-of-Common-Blunders-and-Uncorroborated-Statements-by-Members-of-Congress-about-Obama%E2%80%99s-Birth-and-Constitutional-Eligibility

I will be glad to explain this to you in  more detail, with copies of press releases and court records, but to further get your attention, consider this.

These two characters look like they just left a frat party.

From The Obama File.

“I was looking for a photo to add to the left column, when I re-discovered these photos of the two people who “certified” Obama’s eligibility to serve as POTUS.

They are employees of FactCheck.org, an organization that bills itself as “non-partisan,” but is part of the Annenberg network of liberal-left causes and organizations — just like Bill Ayers’ Chicago Annenberg Challenge — Annenberg, and its causes, are way left of center.

As the world now knows, FactCheck.org published a web page entitled, “Born in the U.S.A. — The truth about Obama’s birth certificate.”  The entire webpage is ONE BIG LIE!

The counterfeit document FactCheck.org is proffering on this page, and refers to as a birth certificate — 31 times — is not a birth certificate — it’s not even real — it’s a bunch of zeroes and ones on a server database.  At least three qualified examiners have said it’s bogus.  But that didn’t stop FactCheck.org from employing Goebbel’s “Big Lie” technique:
    

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie.  It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

   
And it worked!

This absurd webpage, and the bogus document it contains, has been referenced by judges, members of Congress and the ObamaMedia as prima facie evidence that Barack Obama is eligible to serve as Commander in Chief, even though the Obama Campaign has publicly admitted that Obama was — “at birth” — a citizen of Kenya, a British subject and is a “native [born US] citizen” — it’s on their websiteanchor babies are “native born citizens.”

“Native born” citizenship status is different than “natural born” citizenship. “Native born” American citizens are simply not eligible to serve as Commander in Chief.

FactCheck.org identifies their anal-ists as Jess Henig and Joe Miller.  OK, that’s fine, but who and what are Jess Henig and Joe Miller?  Are they qualified to perform an analysis of ANY document, or are they just a couple of guys hanging around FactCheck.org’s office, or are they political operators?  What are their bona fides?  FactCheck.org doesn’t say.  Wonder why?”
“Well, I found out.  The two FactCheck.org employees who were granted access to Obama’s bogus Certification of Live Birth (COLB) are NOT document examiners or experts.  Joe Miller has a Ph. D. in Political Philosophy — so he’s a political operative — while Jess Henig has an M.A. in English Literature — I’m not sure her dye-job is a political or esthetic statement. “

Oh, Mr. Burr, one more example of why you should take this seriously.

CNN Orwellian news, CNN rewrites history, Lou Dobbs spoke truth, Citizen Wells open thread, August 8, 2010

CNN Orwellian news, CNN rewrites history, Lou Dobbs spoke truth

“Winston dialed “back numbers” on the telescreen and called
for the appropriate issues of the Times, which slid out of
the pneumatic tube after only a few minutes’ delay.  The
messages he had received referred to articles or news items
which for one reason or another it was thought necessary to
alter, or, as the official phrase had it, to rectify.  For
example, it appeared from the Times of the seventeenth of
March that Big Brother, in his speech of the previous day,
had predicted that the South Indian front would remain quiet
but that a Eurasian offensive would shortly be launched in
North Africa.  As it happened, the Eurasian Higher Command
had launched its offensive in South India and left North
Africa alone.  It was therefore necessary to rewrite a
paragraph of Big Brother’s speech in such a way as to make
him predict the thing that had actually happened.”…George Orwell, “1984″

As noted months ago and again yesterday, Lou Dobbs, while still at CNN, had this to say about Obama not providing a legitimate birth certificate.

Here are two excellent articles that expose CNN in their Orwellian attempts to rewrite history.

From “I Took the Red Pill”

“Here’s what Fukino did and did not say in her October 31, 2008 statement: Parsing the Statement by Dr. Fukino about Barack Hussein Obama’s Official Birth Certificate

Here’s what Fukino did and did not say in her July 27, 2009 statement: Which Government Organization Was The First To Say, “Obama was born in Hawaii”?

Now, Governor Lingle falsely claimed that the October 31, 2008 statement said “that the president was, in fact, born at Kapi’olani Hospital in Honolulu, Hawaii.” That is patently false. Regardless of whether Lingle is being intentionally dishonest or just clueless, it doesn’t matter… she is speaking lies, and cannot be trusted.

If that weren’t bad enough, CNN is now selectively editing Governor Lingle’s words in order to conceal her lie and create their own lie… the lie that Lingle “certified Obama’s birth certificate as legitimate”.  CNN says (again, bold emphasis mine):

The Republican governor of Hawaii, Linda Lingle, has recently certified Obama’s birth certificate as legitimate.”I had my health director, who is a physician by background, go personally view the birth certificate in the birth records of the Department of Health,” Lingle recently told WABC. “The president was in fact born at Kapi’olani Hospital in Honolulu, Hawaii. And that’s just a fact.”

Do you see CNN’s distortion?  Do you see what they left out?”

“Via CNN and my vault; The scum at CNN should be ashamed to continue to spead the disinformation regarding Obama’s eligibility to be POTUS.  The video clip below is CNN reporting on LTC Lakin’s court martial hearing that took place on August 6th, 2010, in Ft. Belvoir, Virginia.  The clip includes LTC Lakin’s attorney Paul Jensen.  LTC Lakin is refusing all orders until Obama proves his Constitutional Eligibility to be Commander-in-Chief.

In 2008, the Obama Campaign used a great deal of money from undocumented donors, a legion of paid bloggers, internet thugs and a complicit press to spin their Orwellian lies. The Obama Campaign paid The Huffington Post $ 55,354 in 2008. That of course is what was reported to the FEC and  is the tip of the iceberg. I have heard Obama refer to The Huffington Post on several occasions. The last time was the last straw. The Citizen Wells blog has written about The Huffington Post acting as an arm of the Obama camp to smear opposition to Obama. You can expect more.

Listen to the following Obama speech, if you can stomach it. He mentions The Huffington Post at around 1 minute 57 seconds. The speech is cleverly (in the wicked sense) written. It mixes truths, half truths and lies.

From Citizen Wells December 4, 2009.

“Right on cue, The Huffington Post, one of the paid arms of the Obama camp, has come to Obama’s rescue. The American people are increasingly unhappy with the Obama Administration and are certainly more open to learning the truth about him. Several weeks ago Lou Dobbs asked why doesn’t Obama produce a legitimate birth certificate. Now, in a recent interview, Sarah Palin has stated that she believes Obama’s birth certificate being questioned is fair game. The Obama camp Orwellian attacks are predictable as explained in this Citizen Wells article

“Sarah Palin Goes ‘Birther’: Obama Birth Certificate ‘A Fair Question’”

“Sarah Palin declared on Thursday that the legitimacy of President Obama’s birth certificate is “rightfully” an issue with the American public, and that it is “fair game” for politicians to question Obama’s citizenship.”

“FactCheck.org has done the most comprehensive debunking of the various conspiracy theories related to Obama’s citizenship. Here is their bottom line:””

“Why does The Huffington Post do the bidding of the Obama camp?

Here is one of the reasons.

Remember, the monetary payments below are only from Obama For America and those reported to the FEC. Based on the services provided by The Huffington Post to the Obama camp, the actual total paid should be significantly higher.”

*** Update below  March 7, 2010, 10:06 ET ***

The following comment was posted on this blog at 2010/03/06 at 10:13pm.

“HUGE NEWS AT FREEREPUBLIC!!!
“My name is Chanise Foxx. I work at a office supply store in Kenwood, IL. After nearly 3 years of silence and death threats to me and my family to stay quiet, I am compelled to come forward and tell the world my secret.
“I helped Obama campaign staffer Divorah Adler create a fake birth certificate for use in the famous Fact Check story to prove the world of Obama’s birth in the 2008 election. Divorah approached me in early 2007 and held onto the birth certificate until she released it in August 2008.
“As I’ve been making fake IDs part-time for local college students for about eight years now, faking a birth certificate was actually quite easy. Our first step was to get our hands on someone else’s birth certificate from Hawaii. We then created the stationary to match.
“Next, we had to create an embossed stamp and rubber signature stamp for Hawaiian officials. With the help of a high-resolution scanner at the store, I did most of my work at night when the place was vacant…””

This morning around 8:00 EST, I attempted to access the article on Free Republic and was unable to access the article or Free Republic. I searched on Google and got this.

“Results for: Chanise Foxx free republic
DOH indirectly confirms: Factcheck COLB date filed and certificate …http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/bloggers/2465278/posts?page=6 … My name is Chanise Foxx. I work at a office supply store in Kenwood, IL. …

This proved that the article had been posted.

I then tried to access the cache and was unable to access it.

Another commmenter on this blog was unable to access Free Republic when I made the request.

It will be interesting to see how this plays out.

“Devorah Adler
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
Devorah Adler is a political consultant and opposition research specialist for the Democratic National Committee in the United States. A former Assistant Director for Health Policy during the Bill Clinton presidency, Adler later served as Director of Research for the Democratic National Committee in the 2006 election cycle, and served as Director of Research for the Barack Obama campaign for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination.[1]

Adler was one of the Obama 2008 campaign’s first hires in January 2007, assigned to debunk a widely circulated anonymous set of emails that rumored Obama was Muslim. Interviewed at that time by Politico.com, Adler said, “We’ve been bird-dogging it from the beginning; the first research document that I put together was a response to the ‘Who is Barack Obama?’ email.” [2]

The Citizen Wells blog has often quoted “1984″ by George Orwell and for good reason. Early in 2008 it was apparent we had entered the age of Big Brother in the sheep’s clothing of the Obama camp. It was not just the Obama campaign that was orchestrating the totalitarian control of information. The Mainstream Media, paid or obediently following, presented information that glorified Obama, Big Brother, and belittled or attacked any opposition.

Right on cue, The Huffington Post, one of the paid arms of the Obama camp, has come to Obama’s rescue. The American people are increasingly unhappy with the Obama Administration and are certainly more open to learning the truth about him. Several weeks ago Lou Dobbs asked why doesn’t Obama produce a legitimate birth certificate. Now, in a recent interview, Sarah Palin has stated that she believes Obama’s birth certificate being questioned is fair game. The Obama camp Orwellian attacks are predictable as explained in this Citizen Wells article

“Sarah Palin Goes ‘Birther’: Obama Birth Certificate ‘A Fair Question’”

“Sarah Palin declared on Thursday that the legitimacy of President Obama’s birth certificate is “rightfully” an issue with the American public, and that it is “fair game” for politicians to question Obama’s citizenship.”

“FactCheck.org has done the most comprehensive debunking of the various conspiracy theories related to Obama’s citizenship. Here is their bottom line:”

Notice that The Huffington Post has tagged Sarah Palin with birther. Then they quote the lies and misinformation from FactCheck.org. Lou Dobbs is no fool. He acknowledged that the piece of paper (alleged COLB) provided by the Obama camp is just a piece of paper referring to another piece of paper. The Huffington Post will not ask the simple question, the required jounalistic question, the question that a fifth grader can understand.

Why?

Barack Obama has employed a legion of private and government attorneys to prevent revealing his country of birth. Innocent and eligible persons seeking the office of president do not do that.

Why does The Huffington Post do the bidding of the Obama camp?

Here is one of the reasons.

Remember, the monetary payments below are only from Obama For America and those reported to the FEC. Based on the services provided by The Huffington Post to the Obama camp, the actual total paid should be significantly higher.

Judge Clay D Land ruling, Judicial misconduct, Captain Connie Rhodes motion, September 16, 2009, Orly Taitz, Rules for judicial conduct, 28 U.S.C., Judge Land guilty of judicial misconduct

*** Update below September 17, 2009  5:30 PM  **

Despite the lack of respect for the US Constitution, the rule of law, concerned American citizens and not obeying their oaths of office by judges and state election officials over the past year, I, Citizen Wells, respect the office of the judiciary and do not take lightly charging a judge with judicial misconduct. However, due to the serious nature of the Captain Connie Rhodes’ motion, it’s consequences for the military and nation in general, and the non judicious attitude of Judge Land in dismissing the motion, I believe it is the lesser of evils, and certainly in the best interest of ongoing jurisprudence, to check this judicial abuse of power.

The Citizen Wells blog reported yesterday, Wednesday, September16, 2009, on the ruling by Judge Land.
Citizen Wells response to Judge Land ruling
For simplicity’s sake, we reported on the ruling by Judge Land. We will leave to others to debate the courtroom banter, motion word smithing and argument methodologies.

This is indeed a serious matter. At stake is the integrity of our judicial system, upholding the US Constitution and rule of law, insuring that we have a qualified president and supporting the military as they faithfully uphold the oath they have taken to defend the US Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

Judge Land, as a District Court Judge, is subject to the RULES FOR JUDICIAL-CONDUCT AND JUDICIAL-DISABILITY PROCEEDINGS.

“These Rules govern proceedings under the Judicial Conduct and Disability Act, 28 U.S.C. §§ 351–364 (the Act), to determine whether a covered judge has engaged in conduct prejudicial to the effective and expeditious administration of the business of the courts or is unable to discharge the duties of office because of mental or physical disability.”

“these Rules provide mandatory and nationally uniform provisions governing the substantive and procedural aspects of misconduct and disability proceedings under the Act.”

“(e) Disability. “Disability” is a temporary or permanent condition rendering a judge unable to discharge the duties of the particular judicial office. Examples of disability include substance abuse, the inability to stay awake during court proceedings, or a severe impairment of cognitive abilities.”

Disability, such as “severe impairment of cognitive abilities”, will not be addressed, although after reading the ruling, that possibility did occur to me.

“(h) Misconduct. Cognizable misconduct:

6 (1) is conduct prejudicial to the effective and expeditious administration of the  business of the courts. Misconduct includes, but is not limited to:

(A) using the judge’s office to obtain special treatment for friends or relatives;
(B) accepting bribes, gifts, or other personal favors related to the judicial office;
(C) having improper discussions with parties or counsel for one side in a case;
(D) treating litigants or attorneys in a demonstrably egregious and hostile manner;
(E) engaging in partisan political activity or making inappropriately partisan statements;
(F) soliciting funds for organizations; or
(G) violating other specific, mandatory standards of judicial conduct, such as those pertaining to restrictions on outside income and requirements for financial disclosure.”

First, note, “Misconduct includes, but is not limited to”

Judge Land is obvious guilty of two of the offenses above.

 

(D) treating litigants or attorneys in a demonstrably egregious and hostile manner

Egregious defined: “conspicuously bad : flagrant <egregious errors>”

(Note dictionary example – “egregious errors”)

This motion was filed by a captain in the US Military who was required to take an oath to defend the US Constitution. The following was also made clear to Captain Connie Rhodes:

Officers in the service of the United States are bound by this oath to disobey any order that violates the Constitution of the United States.

Judge Land’s persistent reference to “birther” and “birther claim”, aside from having political connotations, is condescending  and demeaning. Judge Land is  both ignorant and misinformed regarding Obama’s eligibility.

“5 of “evidence” Plaintiff’s counsel relies upon deserves further discussion. Counsel has produced a document that she claims shows the President was born in Kenya, yet she has not authenticated that document. She has produced an affidavit from someone who allegedly obtained the document from a hospital in Mombasa, Kenya by paying “a cash ‘consideration’ to a Kenyan military officer on duty to look the other way, while [he] obtained the copy” of the document. (Smith Decl. ¶ 7, Sept. 3, 2009.) Counsel has not, however, produced an original certificate of authentication from the government agency that supposedly has official custody of the document. Therefore, the Court finds that the alleged document is unreliable due to counsel’s failure to properly authenticate the document. See Fed. R. Evid. 901.”

Judge Land dismisses an alleged birth certificate with an attached affidavit yet he quotes the COLB, Certification of Live Birth, a document with no affadavit of authenticity, which is not a birth certificate and refers to the presence of another document. Judge Land has requested no authenticating of the COLB.

“Any middle school civics student would readily recognize the irony of abandoning fundamental principles upon which our Country was founded in order to purportedly “protect and preserve” those very principles.”

Judge Land has made another demeaning statement. The irony of that statement is that any middle school student knows that the president must be a natural born citizen and that the judicial system is part of the checks and balances to prevent a usurper from taking office.

“Instead, she uses her Complaint as a platform for spouting political rhetoric, such as her claims that the President is “an illegal usurper, an unlawful pretender, [and] an unqualified imposter.”

There is no reason to believe that Captain Rhodes was motivated politically. What is readily apparent is that Captain Rhodes takes her oath of office seriously.

“I, [name], do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and
defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies,
foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to
the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental
reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully
discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter.
So help me God.”
US Military officer’s oath of office

This clearly qualifies as an unwarranted and hostile attack upon the character of the plaintiff.

(E) engaging in partisan political activity or making inappropriately partisan statements

“To press her “birther agenda,” Plaintiff’s counsel has filed the present action on behalf of Captain Rhodes.”

Judge Land’s repeated use of the term “birther”, a hallmark insult from the far left and Obama camp, reveals not only his political agenda but a disregard for the US Constitution, an officer in the US military, the plaintiff’s attorney and decent American citizens. That term has no place in the courtroom, especially being flung by a misinformed, biased judge.

“Counsel makes these allegations although a “short-form” birth certificate has been made publicly available which indicates that the President was born in Honolulu, Hawaii on August 4, 1961.“

“Acknowledging the existence of a document that shows the President was born in Hawaii, Plaintiff alleges that the document “cannot be verified as genuine, and should be presumed fraudulent.”

Judge Land uses as the basis for part of his decision a politically motivated, display of an unsubstantiated COLB.

 

Summary
Judge Land, who is clearly misinformed and makes uninformed decisions that certainly appear to be politically motivated, should be brought before a judicial review board. And, if Judge Land believes that he is making well founded statements based on substantiated facts, then the spectre of his ability to sit judiciously on the bench arises.

It is hoped that one or both of two scenarios will occur.

1. Someone will file a complaint.

 
2. I believe it is in the best interest of the judiciary system to self police this matter. Confidence in the judiciary and other branches of government is at an all time low. The American citizens need a clear signal that they will get fair treatment in court and that the judicial branch of government will fulfill it’s crucial part in the checks and balances system of our government.

** Update **

“Dr. Orly Taitz, counsel for Captain Connie Rhodes, M.D, filed today an Emergency Request for Stay of Deployment, pending the filing of a Motion for Re-Hearing, in the Case Rhodes vs. Mac Donald.

Yesterday, Judge Clay D. Land garnered nationally notoriety for his rejection of Captain’s Rhodes’ case, with a severe ruling that was widely faulted by legal experts across the nation.

Attorney Taitz in today’s filings details the errors of Land’s ruling.  What follows is The Post & Email’s summary of Tatiz’s Motions, using a copy forwarded us, by Mr. Neil B. Turner.

First, Attorney Taitz alleges that Judge Land’s ruling “violates the 5th Amendment rights” of her client, “to due process of law, in particular, by” the Court’s “violation of Local Rule 7 of the United States Middle District of Georgia, to wit:”
