Hollister to Berg: Butt Out!

The case of Hollister v. Soetoro, having been previously dismissed, is now before the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. It was widely believe that the legal “brains” behind the case where those of Philadelphia attorney Phillip Berg, although the complaint was signed by DC attorney John Hemenway. Hemenway drew a sanction from the court for the frivolous nature of the lawsuit.

Hemenway is pressing the appeal on behalf of Mr. Hollister, and Berg is no longer welcome. Now in documents filed by attorneys Phil Berg and Lawrence Joyce, we learn that Joyce claims to have written almost all of the Hollister suit, and that Berg and Joyce want to file an amicus brief in the case, largely it seems to defend their honor.

In any case, in a motion in opposition, Hollister and Hemenway have made it clear that they want nothing to do with the amicus brief.

The legal wrangling seems to be over whether other court decisions in other federal districts should be introduced as part of the appeal.

    From the Post and Fail regarding our friend Fitzpatrick…He is actually delusional to think that this could somehow lead to “charges against Obama”…Wow….

    (Dec. 2, 2009) — On Tuesday, December 1, 2009, Commander Walter Fitzpatrick III (Ret.) appeared before the Tennessee Grand Jury to advance his claim of fraud and treason against Barack Obama/Barry Soetoro. This followed Fitzpatrick’s original complaint to Tennessee state officials, the Electoral College and others “right up to Dick Cheney” before the November 4, 2008 presidential election and his subsequent criminal complaint filed March 17, 2009 with U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee, Russell Dedrick.

    In September 2009, Commander Fitzpatrick appeared before a four-member panel of the Tennessee Grand Jury but, according to Fitzpatrick, was obstructed by the jury foreman, Ralph Pettway, from presenting his evidence against Mr. Obama. Fitzpatrick also claims that Pettway forged Fitzpatrick’s signature on court documents and refused to look at the evidence Fitzpatrick brought against Obama/Soetoro.

    The hearing yesterday gave Commander Fitzpatrick the opportunity to present evidence of obstruction of justice against Mr. Pettway. According to Fitzpatrick, according to Tennessee state law, the grand jury has no choice but to hear the charges against Mr. Pettway because Mr. Pettway committed a crime in obstructing Fitzpatrick from presenting his evidence. Fitzpatrick stated that the grand jury “has no wiggle room at all” in this regard.

    This evening on the American Grand Jury radio broadcast on BlogTalkRadio, Commander Fitzpatrick stated that he first notified “every law enforcement agency” in the state of Tennessee without result before appealing to the grand jury about Obama’s usurpation of the presidency. He also stated that he received a death threat today and reported it to the FBI. Commander Fitzpatrick has been visited at least twice unannounced by the Secret Service because of his criminal complaint filed in March of this year. This document is now part of the American Grand Jury presentments which have been filed in over 400 jurisdictions across the country, according to AGJ Founder Bob Campbell.

    The local television station, Channel 4, covered the hearing outside the courthouse and stated that they contacted the White House regarding the charges, but as of this evening they had received no response.

    Photos of the morning’s events will be available on the http://www.americangrandjury.org in the next day or so.

    More information can be found at Commander Fitzpatrick’s website, http://thejaghunter.wordpress.com.

    The goal of the American Grand Jury is to remove Obama from office for fraud and treason. AGJ has convened at least 14 online citizens’ grand juries which have examined various pieces of evidence suggesting that Obama/Soetoro is not a “natural born citizen” as the U.S. Constitution requires of the president.

    Commander Fitzpatrick is expecting another hearing in front of the grand jury in the near future to complete his claims of obstruction of justice on the part of the jury foreman. He stated that once that claim advances, the jury must uphold its oath to the Constitution and examine the merits of Fitzpatrick’s original criminal complaint against Obama/Soetoro.

    Interesting attempt to link Obama somehow with the guy that shot those cops in Washington…I know there are a lot of Post and Fail articles but there are some that are just ridiculous and that was why I reposted them…

    BLACK, ANGRY & SICK, ALLOWED TO EVADE JUSTICE IN HORRENDOUS CASE OF RACE-POLITICS
    by John Charlton

    (Dec. 2, 2009) — Maurice Clemmons, the man who executed 4 Washington State policemen in a coffee-shop over the weekend, was a pedophile pardoned by former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, in 2001.

    In a horrendous case of race-politics gone awry, the mercy received by Clemmons did not stop him from killing again.

    CNN reported the history of Clemmons’ career in crime:

    Clemmons has “extensive violent criminal history from Arkansas, including aggravated robbery and theft,” the sheriff’s department said in a statement.

    He also was recently charged in Pierce County in connection with the assault of a police officer and the rape of a child, according to the statement.

    According to a local prosecutor in Arkansas and past articles published by the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, a repeat offender named Maurice Clemmons had his 95-year prison sentence commuted in 2001 by then-Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee.

    Huckabee cited Clemmons’ young age — 17 at the time of his sentencing — when he announced his decision, according to newspaper articles.

    “It was not something I was pleased with at the time,” Larry Jegley, who prosecuted Clemmons for aggravated robbery and other charges in Pulaski County, Arkansas, told CNN Sunday.

    Dr. Orly Taitz reports at her blog that she had received numerous death threats and harassing emails from the same areas of the country; and though she had complained to local authorities there, nothing was done. It is not clear if these threats emanated from Clemmons, or whether he was an Obama supporter.

    However, according to Wikipedia, Clemmons did claim to be the brother of Barack Hussein Obama and Opra Winfrey; he made these statements following his arrest on July 1st of this year.

    Clemmons was shot dead, after a statewide manhunt to track him down. The liberal media still claim that he was the “alleged shooter.”

    Look how Charlton uses the term “race-politics” even though there is no evidence that race played into the decision by Huckabee in granting him clemency…

    Even more ridiculous was the following line “It is not clear if these threats emanated from Clemmons, or whether he was an Obama supporter.” So what would be the reason that Clemmons would be a Obama supporter? Or why would there be any reason that the so called “threats” would have come from him? Is it because they were in Washingotn? Or was it because of race? Somehow when you dig deeper with the birthers, that always seems to be an issue.

    More about Fitzpatrick here:

    And of course even if this grand jury were to buy into Fitzpatrick’s theories, a state grand jury has no authority to hand down a indictment for treason and the D.A. has no authority to prosecute a charge of treason. But “Charlton” doesn’t care about facts.

    Aside from the jurisdictional aspects… real grand juries need to hear evidence.

    Tennessee apparently allows anyone to seek a Grand Jury hearing. If, for example, I witness my neighbor breaking into another home on our block — and nothing is done after I report the incident to the police – it looks like I could ask to go before the GJ in my county in Tennessee and testify as to what I had seen there.

    But if I find my home broken into and possessions trashed or stolen…. and I suspect a neighbor who I have argued with in the past — and ask for a Grand Jury hearing and then testify that I don’t like the neighbor and suspect he is the type who would so something like that… then we could expect that the GJ would ultimately return no bill. They don’t need proof beyond a reasonable doubt, but they do need some sort of evidence that could be presented in a court of law to hang their hat on.
