The Hemenway v Robertson smackdown. This round goes to Hemenway in the Hollister v Barry Soetoro lawsuit. The question is will Judge Robertson follow the Constitution and do what’s right or will the court turn its head, while shoveling in another spade full of dirt over this precious document.

BORN IN THE USA?
Judge ripped for using blog eligibility hearsay
Obama case lawyer says he’s entitled to birth certificate discovery hearing

A lawyer threatened by a federal judge with sanctions for filing one of the myriad legal challenges to President Obama’s eligibility has responded by criticizing the judge for relying on “hearsay” blog information for his decision and suggests he should be given a hearing that could include discovery of the president’s original birth certificate.
dismissed a lawsuit filed by John D. Hemenway on behalf of Gregory S. Hollister, a retired military officer, who is subject to being recalled to duty and therefore would need to know the legitimacy of any order coming from Obama.
In his statement dismissing the case, Robertson ridiculed the complaint, which never had a court hearing, ruling that the eligibility issues had been “blogged, texted, twittered and otherwise massaged.”
Hollister is represented by Philadelphia lawyer Philip Berg, who has brought several motions on the eligibility dispute to the U.S. Supreme Court that have been ignored. Hemenway acted as local counsel in filing the action on behalf of Hollister.
Robertson wrote: “The plaintiff says that he is a retired Air Force colonel who continues to owe fealty to his Commander-in-Chief (because he might possibly be recalled to duty) and who is tortured by uncertainty as to whether he would have to obey orders from Barack Obama because it has not been proven – to the colonel’s satisfaction – that Mr. Obama is a native-born American citizen, qualified under the Constitution to be president.
“The issue of the president’s citizenship was raised, vetted, blogged, texted, twittered, and otherwise massaged by America’s vigilant citizenry during Mr. Obama’s two-year-campaign for the presidency, but this plaintiff wants it resolved by a court,” Robertson wrote.
Wrong on most counts, Hemenway contends.
“This is not what Plaintiff Hollister’s concern is,” Hemenway wrote in a court-required response. “Plaintiff Hollister is a retired colonel, who is subject to recall. Plaintiff’s concern is how an order received from Soetoro/Obama is to be regarded. Would it be a legal order which he must obey or an illegal order which he must disobey?
“These are not frivolous matters, as the learned Judge Robertson has suggested. Possible illegal orders are a matter of great concern to officers in the armed forces. Undersigned counsel himself entered the Army of the United States during WWII and was promoted to Infantry Second Lieutenant preparing for the anticipated landings in Japan which were scheduled for November 1, 1945. But for President Truman’s use of nuclear weapons to end the war, this would have transpired. The legality of orders in and out of combat is of paramount importance,” he wrote.

Hemenway continued with a “second point” Robertson raised.
That is, he said, that “the president of the United States had been properly vetted.”
“This assumes facts not in evidence and was not addressed. It is clear that the constitutional qualifications of President Soetoro/Obama have not been properly vetted. Judge Robertson even cites an earlier case filed in Pennsylvania by one of the two lead attorneys in this case, in which the judge claimed candidates in the recent presidential election had never been more closely vetted. Nothing was further from the truth. Effectively, the Pennsylvania District Court judge was introducing his own hearsay and opinion into the case as if it were acceptable evidence,” Hemenway wrote.
“It is sad to read this court’s use of material from the Internet to imply that the issues in the numerous lawsuits filed have been resolved by the ‘twittering and blogging’ to determine that the litigants are invoking ‘conspiracy theorists.’ It suggests that the intellectual capacity of this court focused on the issues in the instant suit at a very low level, perhaps for political purposes, such as to win attention from the highest authority when a seat on the Supreme Court of the United States becomes vacant,” Hemenway wrote.
Further, Hemenway wrote, Robertson is threatening him with sanctions for “the costs allegedly borne by the defendants when all that would be necessary to terminate this political chicanery (substitute ‘crisis’) that now has involved hundreds of thousands of concerned citizens would be for President Obama to display his actual birth certificate.”
Instead, ranks of attorneys have been hired to block “access to his records by sealing his college records, refusing access to his ‘vault’ birth certificate; and all other documents which would provide his citizenship status.” …Continue Reading

It is long but is well worth the read.
Chief Justice John Roberts – Have you had time to review the documents given to you by Dr. Orly Taitz last week? It is time to end this situation and ensure that all Americans can trust that the person in the Oval Office is eligible. Obama will not be my President until he shows some character and establishes that he is eligible to serve as President of the United States. Way it stands right now, the only person I see acting as President is the Teleprompter. However, to be clear, I don’t agree with most of the Teleprompter’s positions.
“The Obama Deception” continues to spread like a wild-fire across the internet. The film but it is well done, thought provoking and entertaining. Agree or disagree, it is worth a look. It is worth watching if for no other reason than the Main Street Media is not making a peep about it and Facebook has apparently been attempting to silence people linking to it. I insist that I, not the media, will be the one who decides what I read, see, hear and/or think about.
I started following Larry Sinclair’s allegations that he and Obama did cocaine and engaged in consensual sex in 1999 because it was clear that the media was trying to hide Mr. Sinclair’s story. It is clear to millions of Americans that the media effectively hid enough of the most damning evidence against the “Obama Fairy Tale” to get Obama elected. It is unacceptable that the media continues to daily shape the news about Obama.
