Hawaii will ask for sanctions

Calls Taitz a “vexatious litigator.”

imageThe State of Hawaii has had enough, and has asked Judge Rhonda Nishimura to issue an order barring Taitz from filing more motions without leave of the court and says that it will request sanctions and repayment of the costs of responding to her frivolous motions, in this case trying to enforce a unserved, illegal and facially invalid subpoena from the Georgia administrative action Farrar v Obama under a suit already dismissed,

Plaintiff’s history in this case alone demonstrates that she proffers theories without legal authority or merit. The present motion is another example of Plaintiff’s documented practice of filing unsubstantiated moving papers. A few hours of legal research was all it took to discover the applicable Georgia law pertaining to administrative hearings and administrative subpoenas. Either Plaintiff did not take that minimal mount of time before she presented her frivolous and unsubstantiated claims to this court, or worse scenario, she did take that time and actually knew that she had no merit to her claims. Either way, the result has been a waste of Defendants’ counsels’ time and resources, as well as this Court’s time and resources.

The State’s attorney pointed out that Georgia law says that their subpoenas are only valid in Georgia, and even if they were valid in Hawaii, the type of discovery Taitz seeks isn’t available even in Georgia for the type of administrative proceeding in Farrar.

Read the State’s motion:

    Lets see, based on the Judge Land debacle, what are the odds that Mad Ole Orly will be able to restrain herself from screeching USURPER, TRAITOR, EBIL, COMMUNIST etc etc at the AG and the judge….?

    You obviously haven’t even read the State’s motion. They showed that the subpoena isn’t even valid in Georgia.

    I don’t know why you put “Esq” next to your name, but it is obviously not because you’re an attorney.

    Now that is a creative argument. Seriously flawed, but creative. So, this line of reasoning is that the President must be removed because his BC, which was forged anyway, is invalid, because Hawaii will not recognize other state’s documents? That’s what HG is going for?

    The State of Hawai’i unconstitutionally refuses to acknowledge the State of Georgia’s valid subpoena. Consequently, the State of Georgia can refuse to accept Obama’s Hawai’i BC.

    Without proof of birth in the US, Obama should be removed from Georgia’s ballot.

    Apart from the simple fact that you’re a simpleton, states don’t get to “surrender” that which is in the Constitution, you may not be aware of this but there a bit of a scrap between the North and South a bit ago that settled that once and for all.

    And Orly’s response on her site?

    “I just arrived in HI and checked my e-mails. Deputy attorney general Nagamine represents a pinnacle of corruption of a governmental official. Not only she refuses to comply with the subpoena, but she claims that my demand for the original birth certificate is frivolous and that the judge should charge me the cost of all the hearings and deem me a vexatious litigant, not allowed to bring any more actions in HI without leave of court.

    She completely disregarded the fact, that judge Malihi ordered Obama to stand trial on January 26 and prove his eligibility, that eligibility is the essence of the case and the birth certificate is the most important evidence . The level of corruption in the state of HI is unprecedented in human history. Don’t forget that the husband of this attorney is a family attorney for Obama’s family and he handled Obama’s sister’s divorce from her first husband.

    I really hope that the judge will show integrity and will not be a part of this corrupt establishment. This remains to be seen.

    All I know, that during Watergate a number of top governmental officials went to prison, among them attorney General of the U.S. and White House counsel. What Nagamine does is criminal, it is a violation of the civil rights of my clients and my civil rights under a color of authority. She is using a color of authority, her position as the deputy attorney general to cover up forgery, elections fraud, obstruct justice and on top of that she is harassing me and attempting to intimidate me under the color of authority.

    This woman belongs in prison for what she is doing to me, to my clients and to the whole country.
    She belongs in prison together with Obama and Fuddy and a number of others. This regime will not last forever. These people will be prosecuted. It remains to be seen on which side of history the judge will be: will the judge aid and abet this forgery and obstruct justice or will she uphold the law and the constitution and will fight crime in the White House and in the office of Attorney General of Hawaii.

    You can see how much stress I have to withstand, you can see the financial threats that are applied towards me by corrupt officials of Obama regime. I was up from 4 am CA time It is 12:30 HI time or 2:30 am Ca time. It is nearly unbearable to withstand all of this stress of this criminal regime.”

    There is no Full Faith and Credit Clause for subpoenas my dear friend. If Obama’s BC is not valid then for sure there is no reason to have it subpoena’ed anyway…

    Sorry my friend by subpoenas are not covered by the Full Faith and Credit clause. i am sure that when you read the clause, you will know why.

    Furthermore, the subpoena is only valid in GA and since it came in a proceeding in an administrative tribunal, not a Court, and since it was never a court order, there is no reason for Hawaii to take the subpoena seriously. Furthermore, under HRS 338-18, Hawaii cannot release the document unless there exists a valid court order.

    Similarly, under the rules of evidence, a duly certified COLB is admissible in the GA court system.

    I want to scream when she keeps stating that President Obama has been “ordered to stand trial” when it is an administrative hearing before an ALJ.

    Further, it’s been clear from the get go that the subpoenas were invalid because Georgia doesn’t have subpoena power over Hawaii – not even in our civil procedure code do we have that power and it clearly states in the OSAH code that the subpoenas are valid “anywhere in Georgia.”

    According to our civil procedure if I want to subpoena someone in a county in Georgia other than the one in which the case is pending for a deposition or for records, I have to get a court in the county in which the deponent resides to issue the subpoena. There is no recorse for out of state other than a direct order from a judge.

    Yes, the rules of evidence have no relevance to the subpoena, surely you must understand the difference? You were arguing reciprocity and I showed that none exists. In fact, you have still not shown your familiarity with the Full Faith and Credit Clause. Surely you could look it up… What exactly does it say and does it include ‘subpoenas’?

    Why don’t you go away? You’ll get nothing but abuse here for spouting nonsense like that.

    For starters, Georgia hasn’t subpoenaed anything. Orly Taitz filled out a blank form she got off the state web site. Second, Georgia law says that the subpoena isn’t valid outside Georgia. Third, Taitz hasn’t even bothered serving her invalid subpoena. And finally, the subpoena asks for discovery beyond what Georgia law allows for administrative proceedings.

    Hawaii isn’t corrupt; Taitz is incompetent. And you’re an idiot.

    Hermano Gonzales, Esq.: The State of Hawai’i unconstitutionally refuses to acknowledge the State of Georgia’s valid subpoena. Consequently, the State of Georgia can refuse to accept Obama’s Hawai’i BC.

I recall seeing a do-it-yourself, pre-signed subpoena apparently generated from the court’s website … Orly whipped one up and addressed it to Obama, another at Hawaii demanding records. Are these the “valid” subpoenas we’re talking about? Good luck enforcing those in court. If those are valid, I’m gonna draw a picture of a $100 million bill and take it to the bank right now!

    Well, Hermano, let’s see what the Full Faith and Credit clause says, shall we?

    “Full Faith and Credit shall be given in each State to the public Acts, Records, and judicial Proceedings of every other State. And the Congress may by general Laws prescrie the Manner in which such Acts, Records, and Proceedings shall be proved, and the Effect thereof.”

    Let’s take a look at this “subpoena”.

    Is it an Act? No.

    Is it a public record? No, certainly not.

    Is it a judicial proceeding or judgment? No.

    So doesn’t look like the clause applies at all. Sorry, you lose.

    Now how about the birth certificate…

    Is it an Act? No.

    Is it a public record? Yes.

    So we move to the second sentence. Has Congress set national standards for birth certificates such that they can be considered “proved”? Yes they have. Does the certificate release by Hawaii meet those standards? Yes it does. does Congress describe the effect of such a record if it meets those standards? Yes it has, and the effect is that it is accepted as a legitimate document proving the fact of birth.

    So no, Hawaii doesn’t have to accept the Georgia subpoena (although they could pass laws that state they would, many states have not), but that does not affect the fact that Georgia must still accept the birth certificate.

    I don’t think what’s she’s asking for in her off the wall subpoena even meets those standards. The original document requested doesn’t even have any of the features that make up a certified birth certificate that would be admissable as evidence of birth in a court proceeding, such as an official seal of some sort, or a certification mark attesting to the authenticity.

    And what the heck is she doing asking for the entire microfiche roll? So she wants some fishing expedition so that she can look up all the random birth certificates filed in that timeframe for some kind of dirt? By the way, is there even such a thing as a “microfiche roll”? I remember using microfilm at the public library, and those were in roll format. Microfiche comes in flat sheets.

    J. Potter: She’s been watching too many melodramatic movies. In which spooked teens frantically roll from page to page of the local paper’s archives at the public library, looking for the history of a crazed killer or a creepy old house. It’s always microfilm in the movies.

    J. Potter: Good catch! Betrays Orly’s unfamiliarity with real libraries? Shocking. She makes it too easy. She’s been watching too many melodramatic movies. In which spooked teens frantically roll from page to page of the local paper’s archives at the public library, looking for the history of a crazed killer or a creepy old house. It’s always microfilm in the movies.

    On a serious note, if a court were to somehow grant an actual court order authored and signed by a judge for such an entire roll of vital records microfilm, would anyone else with a certificate image on the roll (or their families) have cause to have the order blocked? I’m assuming it would be a court order that would be subject to Full Faith and Credit, such as in a child custody dispute where they might need the record to establish the age of the child. Or perhaps the judge is “going rogue”. If I found out that my totally unrelated Hawaii birth record might be released without my consent, I might just seek an injunction blocking the court order unless it were narrowed down. However, I wouldn’t think that a typical court order would ask for anything more than a certified copy.

    I know with the California Public Records Act, there are limitations even with public records. Someone can only inspect the originals if they are deemed not to contain information that is otherwise protected. California birth and death records are considered public, and most people file public marriage licenses. I’ve seen the certified informational copies of Michael Jackson’s death certificate, and it’s been redacted for information like social security numbers. Marriage licenses might contain certain private information like the addresses and phone numbers of the bride/groom as well as the addresses and phone numbers of the witnesses. However, I do remember the Jon Hunstman birth certificate copy, which had the contemporary form which included the mother’s address, and San Mateo County didn’t redact that. Probably doesn’t matter since they’ve long since moved.

    http://www.aolcdn.com/tmz_documents/0707_mj_deceased_wm.pdf

    As far as PDFs go, it’s pretty clear what parts were redacted by the county office and what parts were blacked out by TMZ. There are other versions of this out on the internet, and some of them show everything that wasn’t redacted by the county.

    NBC: Similarly, under the rules of evidence, a duly certified COLB is admissible in the GA court system.

    Nobody’s even seen that nor had such a paper form in hand….even its actual presentation in its original form (a first), with the former HI DOH official’s public description of it after seeing it as being half written and half typed, will be rather difficult to square with the latter in realville.

    IANAL, but wouldn’t a court just request images from the film? Y’know, cetrified copies? How, conceptually, is the film different from the copy? An image is an image. Unless you want to discuss generations and degradation. The only thing better than a cert. copy is the original itself. Asking for one kid of copy over another is pointless, unless some aspect of the case concerns the nature of the copy itself…like perhaps the microfiche had been altered. But Orly didn’t say as much, has no sane reason to expect as much, other than wild birther speculation. Probably had her fishing pole in hand while typing that one up!

    Au contraire mon frere.

    NBC White House correspondent Savannah Guthrie claims to have seen and touched the certified copy. She even took a couple of photos with her camera phone:

    http://lockerz.com/s/96540937
    http://lockerz.com/s/96540721

    BTW – What you’re getting at was a paraphrase by the MSNBC reporter Michael Isakoff, who interviewed former Heath Director Fukino. There’s no evidence that she actually said “half typed and half handwritten”, or otherwise that would have been noted in quotation marks.

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/42519951/ns/politics-more_politics/t/ex-hawaii-official-denounces-ludicrous-birther-claims/

    Before she would do so, Fukino said, she wanted to inspect the files — and did so, taking with her the state official in charge of vital records. She found the original birth record, properly numbered, half typed and half handwritten, and signed by the doctor who delivered Obama, located in the files. She then put out a public statement asserting to the document’s validity. She later put out another public statement in July 2009 — after reviewing the original birth record a second time.

    Sure they have. FactCheck took multiple pictures – from the front, and side, showing it folded, showing it had three dimensions – of the COLB, including those that showed it clearly had a Hawaiian certification seal on it.

    Likewise, multiple reporters said they saw the form at the press conference at which the LFBC was released. The Hawaii Dept. of Health has a webpage about it attesting to the authenticity of the paper document released, and they link to the White House page. Even WND’s White House reporter saw it and said he was convinced (which pretty much led him to be dropped by WND – gotta tow the line!).

    The original will never get released, original documents are never made available. What a court would get, were one to request, is a certified copy, which is exactly what we’ve all seen pictures of. A certified copy they’d accept without question, and which none of the birther experts would be allowed to even testify about (as none are qualified document experts).

    You’re kidding right? Besides the fact that his SSN has been disclosed publicly and he could have easily had it invalidated with a replacement SSN. Besides the numerous reports of people who have had their Self-Check or E-Verify checks come back as non-matching for reasons including a misspelled name or the wrong variation on a middle name. Besides the fact that the Self-Check system was used contrary to government regulations that only allow the person with that SSN to run one’s own SSN through the system.

    The government has specifically noted that an E-Verify first pass is not adequate to make a final determination. They make note that there may be tentative non-confimations that may need human intervention to adjudicate final eligibility. A human being can check for little things such as name misspellings or perhaps entry mistakes.

    If the original were to ever leave the Hawaii Dept of Health offices or were somehow transported except for perhaps a carefully orchestrated move to another building, would it be a violation of the chain of custody?

    As far as certified copies go, my kid’s California birth certificate can be ordered from the city, the county, and the state. Each one has issued a slightly different looking copy based on little scanning pixelation artifacts. The original is on file in a building in Sacramento and will almost certainly never be pulled out again unless there’s some sort of rescan ordered by the state. We’re living in an era where signed photocopies, FAXes, and electronic copies are considered as legally binding as the original.

    Agreed. Either document (COLB or Long Form) is End-Of-Story right there. FFAC & prima facie right there. Nothing more is needed.

    The Long Form was never even necessary, as the COLB 100% satisfies that requirement, as it is the only current official HI document for such info. Merely showing a certified paper copy of the COLB makes this an open and shut case right there. The only reason we are even mentioning the Long Form in this scenario is because, due to the exception that Obama was granted, 2 official certified paper copies of that were issued to him by HI as well. Therefore, they ALL serve the exact same purpose and are equivalent for those purposes. Only one or the other is needed, not both.

    However, it is even more important to point out that this case doesn’t even require that level of proof to be put forward in order to fully satisfy the burden of the law that he’s legit.

    All the DNC has to do is produce a signed application that states the candiate attests to the truth of the information contained on the application and that he meets all the required qualifications for that office.

    Therefore, Obama’s signature attesting to that ,on an official DNC application with such wording, would be sufficient and stand on its own merit as satisfying the burden of proof threshold required under law.

    J. Potter: photoshop? a new level of ignorance has been expressed.

    To start with, just what cave have you been living in in recent years? Did the darkness cause an inability to see the light or…at least read it?

    We’re waiting for your tutorial re: the many intricacies publicly questioned and noted re: the many forms so “transparently” submitted for distant public scrutiny. Now, if you really want to get into the weeds, well, you brought it up….begin here:

    We could begin, in the order of the law and its place for a search for truth for the public’s sake:

    http://obamareleaseyourrecords.blogspot.com/2011/02/notre-dame-professor-charles-rice.html

    Charles E. Rice, professor emeritus at Notre Dame Law School …. that it’s time for a new approach on the eligibility issue.

    On the other hand, it is fair to say that the Obama controversy involves significant issues of fact and law that deserve some sort of official resolution.

    I suggest no conclusion as to whether Obama is eligible or not. But the citizens whom the media and political pundits dismiss as “birthers” have raised legitimate questions. That legitimacy is fueled by Obama’s curious, even bizarre, refusal to consent to the release of the relevant records. Perhaps there is nothing to the issues raised. Or perhaps there is. This is potentially serious business. If it turns out that Obama knew he was ineligible when he campaigned and when he took the oath as President, it could be the biggest political fraud in the history of the world. As long as Obama refuses to disclose the records, speculation will grow and grow without any necessary relation to the truth. The first step toward resolving the issue is full discovery and disclosure of the facts.

    Then follow with, (re: photoshopping)….at least one could have tried to find a good forger!!: (contains the explanation of the OCR objections):

    http://www.archive.org/details/WashingtonTimes-NewlyReleasedObamaBirthCertificateForgery

    Ooh…so much secrecy and sooo many unanswered specifics by the sooo “transparent” public servant: http://obamareleaseyourrecords.blogspot.com/2011/04/busted-white-house-now-claims-they.html

    The convenient evolving HI “rules” (differing as they are within their own departments themselves) for what is and what isn’t presented to individuals, the framing of which changes according to inquiries:

    To ease your taxing brain efforts you can just scroll down and begin here:

    How Many Does Obama Have?
    By my count, we are up to nine Obama BCs.

    1. The one Obama said he had in “Dreams…”

    2. Version 1.0

    3. Version 2.0
    4. The .pdf the White House put up on its website
    5. The one they handed out at the press conference

    6. The monochromatic birth certificate
    7. The Kenya birth certificate

    8. The Blaine birth certificate
    9. And on April 27, 2011 the bogus “long form” birth certificate was released.

    How long will it be before we hit an even dozen?

    I would say then that the level of ignorance here is related to the apparent real lack of curiosity on the level of promised “transparency” not forthcoming from your “man”. Your protection and water carrying is rather a sham re: any intelligent approach to truth.

    Oh so many neglected facts, so little time, and so little adjacent brain cells to work with in the “emperor’s” clothers!!!

    FAIL.

    All of these frivolous Birther cases were tossed out so early in the process that very few of them even resulted in defense teams getting involved. In the few where they did, it was simply to issue basic requests to dismiss the case, because they lacked any merit or right to be there in the first place.

    NONE have required evidence to be submitted by the defense in order to dismiss them.

    So NO – we have yet to see a single instance where the COLB was introduced into the case.

    If and when that ever becomes necessary, they aren’t going to provide some “internet image”, they will do what everyone does when they provide authentication – produce the actual certifield paper copy of that document and it is END OF STORY right there.

    You simply fail to grasp the basic no-brainer of what the judge said – that there is a right to verify PERIOD. The actual COLB or even a mere signed statement ATTESTING that the information on the application is true is sufficient on its own.

    You wrongly add the word “further” into the equation, when you mistakingly state “further verification”. That would imply that that a process of initial judicial verification ever took place in the first place. It hasn’t. That is simply all the judge is saying that there is a right to do – verify, PERIOD.

    Once the very basic minimum requirements of legal verification are stated (as I already explained), that is END OF STORY right there. No “further verification” even comes into the equation. Nor did the judge ever imply that.

    The rules apply equally for all. Your “show us your papers boy” mentality of demanding only “certain” types of people to satisfy additional burdens of proof of who they are, beyond what everyone else has to, is simply unlawful and sheer bigotry. Bigots might think that way, but the courts aren’t going to go down that unlawful path. At least not here in the 21st century.

    So, hey, good to know that you’re so gullible that a mere online circle-jerk of the same damaged people repeating the same delusional nonsense impresses you….

    Sorry, but you and your sites are all a bad joke. None of these clowns are “experts” in any real sense of what that would mean in context of the subjects they spout blowhard kook nonsense about. None of them would meet the basic threshold to appear in that capacity in any court of the land. None of the Birther claims match up to reality or law at all.

    Sorry, but you’re just a bunch of hate-obsessed nuts getting your stroke-off fix from each other and playing fantasy pretend games. That’s all.

    And that is why you so predictably and miserably fail every time you try to push this nonsense in a real world setting or court.

    Too bad you still can’t see the obvious smack-down the courts will be handing down in all these cases. Such a shame that while all of us will knowingly be able to laugh at the entertainment, you folks are too blind and stupid to see it coming.

    Sorry, but no-one here is going to shed any tears for you at being *shocked* when the ruling turns out exactly as we warned you about and tried to explain to you all along…

    antiquatedtwinkie: Your bias even fogs the mind for the facts presented? They are verified in sooo many reliable sites that back up with the actual evidence as sited here, only summed up there for your limited energy….your search engine broken or something? I personally enjoy facts over emotional habits of biased generalizations. If you have time to repeat the excuses for not learning you can easily compare, for quality sake, the experts with the bad forgers and the obfuscating HI “officials”. Then again, clothing the naked….in this case not a corporal work of mercy….is a hard habit to quit.

    Larche: You must have graduated from the same online law school as Ms. Taitz to believe this.

    Sure. Besides the fact that there’s doubt about whether or not a subpoena is a judgement or ruling per se subject to full faith and creidt. I understand that typically the parties receive a blank form with a reproduction of a judge’s signature, it gets filled out, and the clerk stamps it. More than likely the judge never saw it and never got to rule on whether the request was relevant or just a fishing expedition.

    The one thing I’ve noticed is that subpoenas are way too easy to file, and way too easy to quash. If something absolutely outrageous is asked for, there’s nothing to prevent the clerk from just seeing if it meets their format requirements and stamping it. I’ve heard of attorneys sanctioned for issuing subpoenas asking for irrelevant documents where they were simply trying to inconvienience defendants and perhaps frustrate them. Or asking for documents that are protected by state or federal laws.

    I’d like to see Orly just try and try to subpoena the President’s educational transcripts, just to see her declare success that she managed to file a subpoena, but only to find that it’s not legally enforceable.

    Hello… learn to read. This site already has addressed all these topics and debunked them. Those articles and links are all here, for your viewing and anyone else’s to find.

    Everything you’ve brought up is all very old news and there isn’t even a wrinkle of anything new in what you say. So there is no point in covering ground well traversed, when it is all right here.

    There is a search button, an FAQ, tags to categorize topics and even a Handy Debunkers Guide.

    There is simply no excuse for you to be too lazy to look up the answers that are already here.

    Oh and “Chavez, Castro, or even Odingo….”… WTF?? Seriously? What does that have to do with anything at all? LMAO! Boy, you really have a bunch of bogeyman fears that haunt your every steps, don’t you?

    Watch out, the black helicopters and the Illuminati are on to you as well! They monitor this site and know where to find you and wisk you away to the waiting FEMA camps..!

    LOL!

    antiquatedtwinkie: So far haven’t seen all your refuting facts….just knee jerk responses from apparently experienced knowledge of the institutions and professionals (since you brought them up)so easily brought into the otherwise fact supplied responses. But then, the proverbial suicidal lemmings don’t know where they’re headed. They’d rather rely simply on “promises”….how have those “promises” of “transparency”….”hope”….and the “change” so innocently expected actually concluded in our present conditions? That old Democratic question lurks behind the scenery….”are you better today than you were 4 years ago”?? I guess that depends with the criteria used….comparing with the worlds of Chavez, Castro, or even Odingo….perhaps still so…but I wouldn’t hold your collective breaths if your little unverified world is allowed to continue!

    antiquatedtwinkie:

    The so called personal verification of publicly displayed COLB is already out there and has been for some time….accepted in many hearings but apparently not enough for this judge.Since the judge maintains the public’s right to know that right apparently has been satisfied in your mind.So why the permission for further verification?Why not the parroting of approved response….”he has shown his COLB”???

    The reality is that Judge Malihi is not said anything about what, if any, evidence of eligibility he will require of President Obama. The only ruling that the judge has made is that the plaintiffs have the right to have their challenge heard.

    http://www.obamaconspiracy.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/Farrar-Motion-to-dismiss-by-Obama-is-denied.pdf

    I expect that, as with any other civil case, the burden will be on the plaintiffs to make a prima facie case that Obama is not a natural born citizen. How they plan to do that is a mystery to me. They have no admissible evidence that Obama was not born in Hawaii. Likewise, there is no admissible evidence of Social Security fraud – and even if there were such evidence, the “issue” is a red herring because someone could have 100 Social Security Numbers and still be a natural born citizen (unless some birther can show me where the Constitution says that a natural born citizen must have one and only one Social Security Number).

    That said, it would not surprise me if Obama’s lawyer shows up with a COLB from Hawaii, presents that to Judge Malihi and the challenges are then dismissed.

    Rickey: That said, it would not surprise me if Obama’s lawyer shows up with a COLB from Hawaii, presents that to Judge Malihi and the challenges are then dismissed.

    I honestly can’t say what I’d prefer:

    (1) Malihi denies plaintiff’s motion because they can’t bring an argument supported by admissible evidence

    (2) Malihi accepts a sworn statement from Obama attesting to his eligibility

    (3) Malihi accepts a certified copy of the COLB

    But since #1 would mean for the 99th time birthers would scream “we never get a ruling on the merits” (they will easily spin it as such since the judge “never heard our experts”), #2 would mean for the 54th time birthers would scream “he’s lying, the judge allows him to get away with it”, maybe I’d settle for #3. Though that would probably spoil the fun of more birther lawsuits since there would be precedent both legally (within the same circuit, I suppose no court would entertain any more challenges) and procedurally (Obama would just submit a COLB in any first case in every circuit, creating above precedent).

    And if court cases are virtually dead and gone as an avenue, what more fun can we have? It’s not like they’ll suddenly get triple figures for their rallies. And I can’t stand the issue being confined to crank blogs where people keep writing “any day now”. 😉

    Obama released his birth certificate in 2008. Prof Rice is clearly detached from reality. No responsible academic would use the assumption of guilt from the absence of a record.

    I wrote about Rice in March of 2011, pointing out that his writing is partisan and not academic. The telling fact about Rice is that he served for eight years as State Vice-Chairman of the New York State Conservative Party.

    1. SR 511 was done in *support* of McCain, by all sides of the aisle. It is exactly the *opposite* response to what you Birthers are trying to pull: In that situation, everyone was leaping to support him and argue he deserves all benefit of doubt in order to put the entire line of questioning on this topic out of reasonble bounds for him. Birthers however, do the opposite and refuse to give any benefit of the doubt or accept the full volume of evidence for Obama’s NBC status at hand. Birtherism is nothing but an endless line of ever-increasing levels of demand for “more proof” and is the polar opposite to being satisfied right off the bat.

    2. Further and more importantly, McCain did NOT have to provide anyone with his BC in this situation. NOR did he ever release it to the public. One reporter stated that he had briefly and privately been shown McCain’s records, but that’s it. No BC FROM McCain or his campaing posted online – NADA. Zip. Zilch.

    3. McCain’s situation is truly different and unusual, as even Constitutional scholars had long pointed out – UNLIKE everyone else, McCain was NOT born on US Soil, and therefore, the question of parentage for him does come into play – and ONLY for that reason.

    4. Obama, being born on US soil (Honolulu, HI) is an open and shut case. There are no serious questions in any serious circles about someone who is BORN here being NBC. That simply does it right there.

    5. Hint: Why do you think there has been such concern in some circles for decades about “anchor babies” – i.e. people with NO citizen parent whatsoever at all who happen to be born on US soil. The whole issue is that it makes deportation difficult, because those “anchor babies” ARE NBC by birth here and therefore, while the parents can be deported, the child’s citizenship comes from the USA. People who are unhappy about it would have to go about getting a Constitutional Amendment to change this. Simple as that. Born on US soil = NBC. It is not the ONLY condition under where one is NBC in this country, but it is the easiest and most straitforward one and requires nothing else. Parentage does not come into that part of the equation.

It is very clear in this topic and commentary what we’ve said will happen in these cases – including exploring a full range of options for what the defense might provide (COLB, LFBC or even just a signed affidafit), should this case actually get that far – and the arguments have also been presented for why it might be dismissed before ever even getting to that stage.

    We’ve further been very clear on stating that will be the end of the case and satisfy the legal thresholds.

    So, how much clearer can we be – Birthers FAIL on this, as they have in 100% of their cases so far. We’ve not only told you the outcome, we’ve broken down all the main possible avenues of activity that might take place leading up to that DISMISSAL.

    YOU seem to think these cases will accomplish something – we’re simply scoffing at you on that and explaining to you why all they will end up with is DISMISSAL and FAILURE, just as all the other failed attempts before them.

    You seem to be trying to have a conversation and argument with yourself, which is detatched from the reality of what has taken place on here so far. Your odd reaction is completely disconnected with the responses you’ve faced here so far.

    All I can conclude is that you are obviously resorting to mere PROJECTION. Again, nothing we’re surprised to see by you clowns here either. It seems to be a fairly common affliction and insecurity defense tactic amongst you Birthers.

    antiquatedtwinkie: Once again specifics please. And get over your emotional tantrums as your excuse for some kind of rebut? Then again they might play here when you sing the same old worn out cliche verses to the usual choir. BORRRRRING!

    I’ll have to find time to pull up the tape of the actual interview to see.

    In that public press speech, Obama explained pretty much the same info as what was also provided, discussed and released in the press packet copies and then posted online.

    That included a official letter from the HI authorities, which detailed the entire chain of events leading to them authorizing his exception request and also specifically stating the full process and chain of custody the followed in honoring his request and also specificallys stating exactly what they were issuing to him in return – (2) certified “LFBC” paper copies along with that very official “chain of custody and explanation letter” itself.

    I will have to rewatch the tape to see if it looks like he indicates or shows that he has what they gave to him there.

    Regardless, HI then came out with an additional statement on their own DOH website, validating and confirming Obama’s press statements and what they gave to him.

    Dr. Conspiracy: How do you know that the two official copies were present in the room? I’m pressing this question because it would be great if such a claim could be sourced but I do not have a source for it.Guthrie said that she saw the form, but not when or where.

    There are four issues involved in ‘said verification of eligibility’: NBC, age, residence, term limits. The Birth Certificate proves the first two, common public knowledge proves the other too. End of story.

    like the proven Obama use of a SSN

    Nothing to do with eligibility.

    that govt’s own verify site has objectively replied with a non-match.

    There is no evidence of that anyway. Just an image of a result of an illegal search for which the search terms are unclear. Even if it were correct, it proves nothing at all, since the SSA has probably issued him a SSN to replace the one Orly compromised.

    Hmmmm…..Beyond the purposefully hidden birth documents,

    Publishing images of a Birth Certificate on the internet is a strange way to ‘purposely hide’ them.

    Dear antiquated twinkie:

    There has been one commenter who names herself after an assassin. Now we have you, which brings to mind:

    “Twinkie defense” is a derisive label for an improbable legal defense. It is not a recognized legal defense in jurisprudence, but a catchall term coined by reporters during their coverage of the trial of defendant Dan White for the murders of San Francisco city supervisor Harvey Milk and mayor George Moscone.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twinkie_defense

    Just add in a clinically insane refusenik, and we have the trifecta. Ding, ding, ding.

    John Reilly January 14, 2012 at 1:34 am #

    Two observations:

    Doc: The state of Hawaii is not asking for sanctions in the above legal paper. The state says it will do so in another procedding in the future.

    Full faith & credit: I think the full faith and credit clause dopes apply in this situation, just not the way Dr. Taitz or Attorney Gonzalez wants to twist it. If Dr. Taitz goes to a Georgia court and gets whatever the paper is called to be able to take an out-of-state deposition of a third party. and takes that paper to Hawaii, a Hawaii court must issue a subpoena granting full faith and credit to Georgia’s request. If the witness has reasons not to comply, that dispute goes to the Hawaii court to decide. However, the fact that Georgia has made the request must be honored to start the discovery process in the distant state. The Hawaii court cannot say that it never honors out-of-state requests. Dr. Taitz and Gonzalez just don’t get it, that someone had to go to a court, and not a web site, in Georgia, and get a court order to present to a Hawaii court to get a Hawaii subpoena. The frustrating thing for observers here is we have been down this road with Dr. Taitz before, and it is clear she cannot learn.

    Now Hawaii suggests in its opposition, above, that no Georgia court will issue that paper in the first instance, and that may be true. But, fundamentally, the power of the Georgia court ends at the South Carolina border. And birthers refuse to understand that.

    They’re actually stamped with a sell by date similar to breads. It’s only about 3 weeks.

    They might actually be reasonably safe to eat well after the sell by date, but they’re going to be dry as heck. The only preservative in Twinkies is sorbic acid, which is pretty innocuous. Supposedly what it does is inhibit mold, which is an issue with any kind of relatively moist cake or bread. I remember it was a common preservative in sterile contact lens saline solutions and a few other optical solutions. It has a really funky smell though. Most contact lens solutions and some types of saline basically smelled like water, but anything with sorbic acid has a distinct odor.

    Supposedly the hydrogenated oils also help increase the shelf life.

    I haven’t looked at a lot of Taitz’s filings, but does she normally put an X to the left of a check box?

    What I learned from helping someone file a standard California civl-action forms and various government forms is that a lot of documents now come in compact PDFs (as opposed to large PDFs that serve as a container for images) that can be filled in and/or saved. You can cleanly fill in check marks and other things, but what the end result looks like can vary depending on the PDF reader used (I use Adobe Reader or Mac OSX Preview). Some of the PDF programming is pretty crappy too. Once I couldn’t even fill in a complete courthouse address, so I could either fill it in by hand, or physically cut out the address from another printout and affix it. Then I made a copy of the result for final filing.

    Rickey: They have no admissible evidence that Obama was not born in Hawaii.

    Prima Facie evidence is invalidated when the plaintiff shows up where the evidence is stored and demands to inspect and copy relevant records. Prima Facie is only valid until contradictory evidence is presented.

    Orly has been blocked from obtaining contradictory to the prima facie because the defendant and his criminal conspirators don’t want to be exposed. The prima facie evidence is invalidated once the judicial notice of the proceeding to obtain contradictory evidence is presented to the Judge in Georgia.

    Also, Plaintiff suspects a person’s birth certificate number and/or data from a person born near the date of birth of the defendant has been improperly usurped and the State of Hawai’i has asserted the person has privacy rights. The person has been dead for nearly 50 years. Dead people don’t have privacy rights.

    The Defendant cannot and should not be rewarded for intimidating witnesses and suppressing evidence which would expose the truth to the trier of fact.

    Poor Sven is hopelessly confused again.

    In the Georgia proceeding, the burden of making a prima facie case is on the plaintiffs, not on Obama. The plaintiffs need to produce admissible evidence that Obama is not a natural born citizen.

    Think about it for a minute. Even if Judge Malihi were inclined to entertain the Vattelist argument, how does Orly propose to prove that Obama had only one citizen parent? The only admissible evidence which I am aware of that Barack Obama Sr. is the President’s father is the Hawaii birth certificate. But Orly claims that the birth certificate is a forgery, so how can she use it?

    For that matter, what admissible evidence does Orly have that Barack Obama Sr. was not a U.S citizen? We all believe that he was not a citizen, but does Orly have certified documents from the government proving that he was never naturalized?

    This is the conundrum which the birthers have faced since day one. They have no admissible evidence of anything.

    So let me get this straight, since some of this is pretty confusing. Taitz apparently was a able to download (a PDF no less) of a mostly blank subpoena sheet with the judge’s signature and a prepared image of the clerk’s stamp. Then she can theoretically ask to see anything she wants, because the judge doesn’t actually have to approve anything? What kind of racket is this? Couldn’t Georgia theoretically sanction her for misuse of court materials?

    She really thinks that she can ask for the entire microform (sheet or roll) that could include private information. So she could also ask to see anything, including the original certificates Stig Wadelich and others? I’m pretty sure some of this might have gotten back to Judge Malihi. I’d think he’d get pissed if someone is using the subpoenas to ask for information that no state or local vital records office would even think of giving up.

    Since the form was removed from the court website, I’m guessing that they know what Orly has been doing and are not amused. Given the manner* with which Orly is almost certain to breeze into her “most important trial, in the history of, history, ever,,”, January 26th looks to be interesting. I expect Orly to be grabbing rope to hang herself with immediately upon entering the courtroom.

    I noticed that ORYR managed to save a copy of the pre-signed form before it got pulled off the servers of the Georgia administrative court. So it looks like Judge Malihi did sign it and a clerk did place the stamp. So is that (being honest that a judge doesn’t actually have to sign off on the subpoena) part of the reason why Orly is angry at ORYR, or does this stem from some earlier incident?

    No, the Judge maintains a Georgian’s right to challenge, to present evidence that Obama shouldn’t be on the ballot. In the US, candidates are presumed to be eligible for the offices they seek on their own statement. Challengers have to prove their claims.

    Since the Georgia challengers have no evidence that Obama isn’t eligible, it could end there. I personally would like to see more material aired (including a COLB) just to make it easier for me to bash birthers in the future.

    I think that the problem is that ORYR committed double plus ungood Orlyspeak by questioning Orly’s adherence to proper procedure–the comments on all of the related threads are hilarious–a combination of “ungood Orlyspeak == obot” and “you’re right–she’s making us (the birthers) look bad” (without an inkling of the underlying irony) and obots pointing and laughing.

    y_p_w: I noticed that ORYR managed to save a copy of the pre-signed form before it got pulled off the servers of the Georgia administrative court.So it looks like Judge Malihi did sign it and a clerk did place the stamp.So is that (being honest that a judge doesn’t actually have to sign off on the subpoena) part of the reason why Orly is angry at ORYR, or does this stem from some earlier incident?

    Hawai’i has the special circumstance of being the resting place of Orly’s holy grail–they need to declare her a vexatious litigant or she wont leave them alone (and other seekers will follow). This is probably not nearly as big an issue for Georgia. I would expect (as a non-lawyer) that any sort of action comes sua sponte from the judge in Georgia rather than in a motion from the defense as in Hawai’i. The president’s lawyer is probably just interested in winning the case–in the instances where President Obama has been awarded legal fees they haven’t requested very much (when, by birther logic, they could have asked for the whole $2+ million… ;-)).

    Assuming, as Doc did, that you are referring to the PDF of the LFBC posted at the WH website, and allegations that it is a forgery, to my knowledge no accredited document expert has done such an analysis, and no “expert” endorsed by birthers has based their analysis on a control sample, a PDF file created by scanning a Hawaiian LFBC with a documented chain of custody.

    As for why not? The forgery claims aren’t credible enough to be worth the effort of obtaining a Hawaiian LFBC, petitioning the WH for use of its equipment and software (or at the effort of inquiring about their hardware & software setup and then recreating it), thoroughly documenting the entire processes, legal and technical. People expressing unreasonable doubts aren’t going to be impressed with reason and evidence.

    Complaints about the PDF stem from flawed logic. The PDF is not the legal document in question, only an image if it. In questioning the PDF, the birthers allege that either it was altered after scanning, or is a complete fabrication. In light of the multiple available images of the LFBC, that clearly weren’t made from the PDF*, it is clear that there is a document behind all of the images. think of them as photos of the same person taken in different lighting condition: colors change, features remain the same. As the wording and letterforms matches in all images, alteration is also ruled out. The PDF is a faithful representation of the same document represented in the other images.

    That leaves considering what all the images represent: is that document genuine, or a forgery? The state of Hawaii has certified that what has been shared with the public is a faithful representation of what they have on file.

    Which is more likely? That the White House and State of Hawaii are telling the truth? Or any of a limitless number of conspiracy possibilities are at work here? That Hawaii faked it with or w/o Obama’s participation, or that the WH faked it and Hawaii is covering for them? The lack of coverup is a far simpler explanation.

    So, no, exhaustive PDF analysis hasn’t been done, as it is unnecessary, pointless, and wouldn’t stamp out birtherism anyway. It would be a fun experiment, something to rub certain noses in … but also pretty stale at this point.

    * Press scan of photocopy in press packet, Savannah Guthrie photos of the certified copy, WH PDF.

    I refuse to consider any site claiming the LFBC is a forgery until the “expert” provides the same “in-depth analysis” on a LFBC known to be authentic. Has anyone done this?

    I’m noticing a few things that are different about the subpoena sent by Orly and the blank form. It’ doesn’t look like it was actually some sort of printout or typing. I don’t have a Scribd account, so I haven’t downloaded the form, but I think it might be some sort of composed PDF that can be altered with certain editing software. It doesn’t look like one of those forms that have fixed boxes but can be filled in ordinary consumer PDF reading software. Notice that the X’s to the left of the check boxes align with YOU, while the check boxes do that in the original. There doesn’t seem to be room to place an X to the left of the “Petitioner” check box, in the original.

    Also – I remember I got called out by a few people when I mentioned that I was hoping that the Georgia Democratic Committee would present a certified birth certificate copy (and perhaps both the standard COLB and a special request long form), although I might have said something about being compelled to do so. I think it would be interesting, and it looks like Doc C and a few others think it might just come to that. It’s not that I think they are somehow compelled to do so by law, but that having overwhelming evidence sounds like it’s a good thing for such a hearing. It’s one thing to stick to your guns, but sometimes it’s better to just do what you have to and move on.

    Besides – I understand there’s a bulk discount on birth certificates with the Hawaii Dept of Health. I only wish the ones I got for my kid were so cheap.

    A judgment is a court order and I expect if Georgia or Hawai’i or both imposed monetary damages on Mrs. Taitz they would expect the cooperation of the California courts to collect it.

    So it looks like FF&C isn’t absolute, but that each state has laws (some quoted here) on how to “prove” out of court documents or proceedings. How a subpoena could be enforced in Hawaii has been mentioned.

    Now if a certified copy of Obama’s BC copy is delivered to the Georgia administrative hearing, I would think that they would have a legal policy on how it will be authenticated. Wouldn’t it involve something similar to how the State Dept authenticates birth certificates for passport issuance? If somehow (and this is about about as unlikely to happen as I can imagine) the original and microform is delivered to Georgia, would there even be any kind of way to authenticate it?

    Of course I can’t imagine it would happen because Hawaii law is meant to protect the privacy of every name on that microform, and because it would set some crazy precedent that a proper chain of custody for original vital records can be broken.

    Rickey: …how does Orly propose to prove that Obama had only one citizen parent? The only admissible evidence which I am aware of that Barack Obama Sr. is the President’s father is the Hawaii birth certificate. But Orly claims that the birth certificate is a forgery, so how can she use it?

    In an Administrative Hearing, the Defendant is required to attend or the Judge will issue a default judgment ruling for the Plaintiff.

    The reason a Defendant is required to attend is so that Plaintiff can compel Defendant to answer questions, under oath, which will prove Plaintiff’s case.

    For example, Orly could ask of witness Obama:

    1) Who is your father?
    2) Has your father ever been a citizen of the United States?
    3) Was your father a Permanent Resident Alien of the United States, commonly referred to as a Green Card Holder?
    4) In your lifetime, has your mother, father, grandmother or grandfather informed you that you are a citizen of Indonesia, Great Britain, or Kenya?
    5) Have you ever told anyone in your lifetime your first name was Barry?
    6) Have you ever been issue a passport from Indonesia, Kenya, Great Britain or any other country besides the United States?
    7) Have you ever lived in the State of Connecticut?
    8) When you were 10 years old, did you travel from Indonesia to the State of Hawai’i?
    If so, were you placed in Federal Protective Custody as an unaccompanied minor and placed in the Federal foster care program? Who was named your legal custodian?

    And on and on …

    As you can see, Obama can never allow anyone to prove any truth about his life. Otherwise, he’d be thrown out of office.

    That’s the Madison proposed version. Madison didn’t actually want each State Legislature to have that, because that would actually take the enforcement out of the clause and basically make the clause meaningless to begin with. By “legislature” he meant the Federal Legislature. This is reflected in the final version which is in the Constitution: “Full faith and credit shall be given in each state to the public acts, records, and judicial proceedings of every other state. And the Congress may by general laws prescribe the manner in which such acts, records, and proceedings shall be proved, and the effect thereof.”

    So it looks like FF&C isn’t absolute, but that each state has laws (some quoted here) on how to “prove” out of court documents or proceedings.

    Actually, the power to set standards of proof resides with the Federal Government, not the State Governments. This is all trivial, since Supoenas are not covered under “public acts, records, or judicial proceedings”.

    Now if a certified copy of Obama’s BC copy is delivered to the Georgia administrative hearing, I would think that they would have a legal policy on how it will be authenticated. Wouldn’t it involve something similar to how the State Dept authenticates birth certificates for passport issuance?If somehow (and this is about about as unlikely to happen as I can imagine) the original and microform is delivered to Georgia, would there even be any kind of way to authenticate it?

    The Federal Government has set up standards. The COLB meets every one of those standards. If Obama was to present the same COLB that he released out on the Internet almost 4 years ago to the hearing and presented it as evidence, the court would be forced to take it under the Full Faith and Credit Clause as proving that Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, and therefore a Natural Born Citizen.

    All of these, in a compentent hearing, would be objected to as irrelevent, and sustained. Sven, you know better. A 1st year law student would get every one of these questions out of there. Ultimately, the only questions that would be allowed are “where and when were you born?” and “have you lived here for 14 years?” Those are the only two questions that actually have relevance. And since the birth certificate actually proves the place and place, there is absolutely no reason to ask Obama that, even if it did get that far.

    .

    I was just thinking that perhaps there have to be procedures in place at the state level to enforce FF&C and reasonable means to deny if orders valid in one state somehow violate the law in another state. Some concealed carry weapons permit holders want their permits to be honored even in states that don’t allow for concealed carry in the first place. Suppose (throwing away the incredulity of this being possible) that one state allows anyone to subpoena an original birth record for a court proceeding, and someone wants to apply that to Hawaii via FF&C.

    I realize that FF&C has its limits. For example, a state couldn’t just come up with any kind of certified birth certificate form it wants and expect that every state will just accept it. For example, the California Certified Abstract of Birth is pretty much useless these days. California no longer issues them and generally won’t accept them. Some have mentioned that the out of state enforcement of subpoenas in Hawaii requires that specific procedures be followed, and they probably have limits on what kind of orders they can enforce.

    That is a problem inherent with all birth certificates, and can even be an issue with other documents and photo ID. I remember a DHHS report on the misuse of birth certificates. Part of what they talked about was fraudulent registrations (i.e. rampant Texas midwife fraud along the border with Mexico) as well as stolen or illegally obtained birth certificates used by someone other than the named person. The report indicated that the vast majority of fraudulent use of birth certificates involved certificates that were actually issued by a legitimate governmental entity and not forgeries. Puerto Rico had to invalidate older birth certificates because of a culture of using them for everything, along with schools holding onto the certified copies. There were thieves who would burglarize school offices just for the birth certificates. They could be sold (a few people even sold their own) for several thousand each, which an otherwise undocumented Hispanic person might be able to use as a “foundation document” to get a driver license, Social Security card, and other documents to establish an ostensibly legal presence in the US.

    In California, there was a recent case where an undocumented worker from Mexico went to work for 2010 Gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman years ago. She presented the Social Security card that belonged to her sister, who had a similar name. She got her driver license at a time when the California DMV was less strict about what documents were needed.

    We also had issues in California when just anyone could order a full birth certificate, and desk clerks weren’t even allowed to ask to see ID of the person making the order. There were cases of people getting them and establishing a new life using the birth certificate. California law has been changed, where birth certificates are still considered public, but where there are two classes of documents. Only a person with a “tangible interest” can get a full copy, while someone who doesn’t attest and present evidence of a “tangible interest” can only get an “informational copy” (possibly redacted) that includes a statement that it’s not valid as an identity document (i.e. getting a passport, SS card, driver license, etc.). They’ve also done the same for death certificates and more recently marriage certificates. I remember when I was married in California, I applied for the standard non-confidential license with the knowledge that my full marriage certificate could be ordered by just about anyone. Then in 2008 the law was changed so that just anyone off the street couldn’t obtain a full copy, but could get an otherwise identical copy with the “informational” statement. Here are some examples of California vital records with the “informational” statement:

    This forum thread even includes scans of a certificate for the same person obtained before and after California changed its law:

    y_p_w: “Full faith and credit ought to be given in each state to the public acts, records, and judicial proceedings, of every other state; and the legislature shall, by general laws, prescribe the manner in which such acts, records, and proceedings, shall be proved, and the effect which judgments, obtained in one state, shall have in another.”

    Are you printing your own private version of the Constitution? From where did you get this bizarre rewriting of the most fundamental document of the nation?

    Every printing of the Constitution that I have in my library, and the online version published by Cornell University (from where I got the following ‘cut/paste’) reads:

    (Article IV Section 1) Full faith and credit shall be given in each state to the public acts, records, and judicial proceedings of every other state. And the Congress may by general laws prescribe the manner in which such acts, records, and proceedings shall be proved, and the effect thereof.

    The words I have placed in bold are different from the words in your Constitution.

    I ask again: WHERE DID YOU GET YOUR BOGUS VERSION OF THE CONSTITUTION FROM?.

    Who, exactly, is so desperate to pervert the Constitution that they would distort the document? And why are you promoting this dreck?

    Sef: I am reasonably certain that “legislature” in this context means U.S. Congress, not a state legislature, otherwise the final clause would not have meaning.

    Since y_p_w’s version of Article IV section 1, you can change ‘reasonably’ to ‘absolutely’.

    The real Constitution actually uses the word ‘Congress’ not ‘Legislature’.

    dunstvangeet: The Federal Government has set up standards. The COLB meets every one of those standards. If Obama was to present the same COLB that he released out on the Internet almost 4 years ago to the hearing and presented it as evidence, the court would be forced to take it under the Full Faith and Credit Clause as proving that Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, and therefore a Natural Born Citizen.

    With the understanding that ” the same COLB that he released out on the Internet almost 4 years ago” means the “actual document”, not the “image of the document” that was published on the internet. Birthers are fond of pretending they don’t know the difference.

    You have my apologies. I quickly looked it up from the Wikipedia article on FF&C, and apparently what I pulled up was only a previous draft of the clause before the final version submitted for ratification.

    y_p_w: Some have mentioned that the out of state enforcement of subpoenas in Hawaii requires that specific procedures be followed, and they probably have limits on what kind of orders they can enforce.

    A subpoena is NOT a court order. A subpoena is not subject to the FF&C rule.

    Your concealed carry example is a furphy and has nothing to do with FF&C. The purpose of the FF&C rule is not to make it so that every law passed in every State has full effect in every other State. That is ludicrous.

    At the risk of introducing a strawman of my own, have you ever noticed that Prime Movers that engage in interstate haulage have tax stickers plates on them with the road tax stickers of the various states that they travel through? Why doesn’t the FF&C clause apply so that each state has to honor the fact that the guy has paid road tax in his home state (which would actually be the cheapest state, of course)? The reason is the same as the concealed weapon permit.

    Birth, Death, and Marriage events can only occur in one state, but must be recognized in every state. Concealed weapon permits can be obtained in any State that allows them and need only be recognized in the state in which it is issued. Road taxes are only payable in the State that levies them and no other State has any interest in what taxes other States levy.

    If a controversy comes up in a court in State ‘A’ that is affected by whether someone had a concealed weapon permit in State ‘B’ (or had paid his road taxes in State ‘B’), then the documentary evidence provided by State ‘B’ would be subject to FF&C. That doesn’t mean the permit is valid in State ‘A’ it just means that State ‘A’ (or a court in State ‘A’) must recognize the documentary evidence from State ‘B’.

    y_p_w: I was just thinking that perhaps there have to be procedures in place at the state level to enforce FF&C and reasonable means to deny if orders valid in one state somehow violate the law in another state.

    Article IV Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution gives Congress the express authority to prescribe the manner in which such acts, records, and proceedings shall be proved, and the effect thereof.

    The procedures you are describing are called “National Standards”. For example, national standards dictate the emblems that make a Birth Certificate a nationally recognizable Birth Certificate. It needs to contain certain information at a minimum, a ‘raised or colored seal’, a signed statement attesting to its veracity, printed on security paper, etc. There are equivalent standards for every kind of document or process or whatever that Congress in its wisdom has seen fit to establish.

    I understand that. However, Orly has been arguing that the subpoena that she self-issued (without a judge or even a court clerk even handling) is a “judicial proceeding” as defined by FF&C.

    I also don’t buy the CCW advocates’ stand on mandatory reciprocity via, but it’s been commonly cited by CCW advocates. Just type “full faith credit CCW” into a search engine. There appears to be arguments that driver licenses are honored because of FF&C, but my understanding other states honor other states’ licenses due to reciprocity agreements.

    Phony lawyer Gonzalez seems to believe the President can be forced to participate in as many as 51 (or 57) different proceedins and to have to personally appear. The President has far better things to do, as Judge Carter noted in his decision.

    Well, so far Orly’s history has only shown that she is good at barking orders to her flying monkeys to do various work for her… but absolutely horrible at taking any advice from others, no matter how well clearly it is spelled out for her – that goes for advice she gets from her supporters and detractors as well.

    So I seriously doubt the inept meglomaniac would be able to follow any instructions or process properly and in full accordance with the law. She hasn’t been able to do so yet.

    I guess I was a little bit late to this, and it might have been mentioned here, but…..

    I finally saw several of the subpoenas that Orly issued, claiming that they were issued by the court/judge. I think several were to federal offices, and she was asking for all sorts of things. There has been quite a lot of discussion of this on other forums.

    I didn’t see it mentioned specifically, but they all have the same exact signature from Judge Malihi, and all feature the exact same stamping pattern (complete with the same obvious fade at the bottom) from the clerk. It was implied from all the discussion that it was a pre-stamped form. However, when they’re placed side to side it’s pretty obvious that the judge didn’t exactly sit down and individually sign these and have his clerk hand stamp each one.

    How legal is this? I remember helping someone with a civil petition and service (hired a process server actually) that an “original” with the actual stamp of the clerk had to be delivered. If it couldn’t be delivered in person to the required addressee after three attempts, then there were detailed requirements. One had to leave a copy with someone in the house and mail a copy separately; I think this was known as “substituted service”. I doubt this was preferred, because it meant more trips for the server (usually charging a flat fee) and supposedly that meant waiting longer to act on the petition.

    My impresssion is it is not legal…or at least, clearly not legit.

    I think we all knew that the judge never issued these to her… I don’t know how anyone seriously contemplated that these were ever legit. It has been quite obvious that Orly simply snagged their pre-printed form all on her own accord and has been abusing their use by filling them out and issuing them herself.

    Personally, I would consider it to be an act of intentional fraud. If it isn’t illegal, it should be.

    California has specific requirements for proof of service. California has some standard forms that can be downloaded for proof of service (that’s what the process server in our case used), but I’ve seen some packets that use non-standard forms. It might be legal to just produce a free-form proof of service, but most people won’t do that when a standard form that the courts see all the time works. I didn’t really see anything about proof of service, although I didn’t stick around too long looking at those beyond the signature and the clerk’s stamp.

    What I noticed about the Georgia rules was that they do require a proof of service certification, but I’m not sure if they have a standard form. It also mentions that once issued, it can be quashed by the judge for being irrelevant, unreasonable, etc and doesn’t say it must be requested by the other party. That sort of says to me that these things go out before the judge ever gets a chance to look at them. They also have to be filed with the court. I’m wondering what happened after the judge got wind that she’s sending requests to the SSA, the Selective Service, State Dept (for passport records), several schools that Obama attended, etc for documents that are protected by federal law. It’s also been my understanding that federal court precedent is that federal officials aren’t bound to state subpoenas in the course of their employment. And of course educational records are protected by federal law.

    See, that’s the thing. There is NO evidence that these were ever filed with the GA court.

    There is NO evidence that Orly went through any proper procedure at all.

    I would also suspect NO proof of service either. Orly doesn’t seem to be too good about following rules and details like that.

    It has been quite obvious since this whole GA subpoena thing came up that Orly’s just being mad ole Orly and taking matters into her own hands willy-nilly.

    There is no reason to believe she’s done one single step of this correctly.

    I did notice that the copy of the subpoena received by Director Fuddy’s office included a certified mail attachment to the envelope. I thought the conditions for proof of service included a certified mail receipt. And yeah – I’m not sure it was filed either, but I don’t know if we have a way of finding out yes or no. I’ve understood that all these filings are considered public documents and should be attached to the case number. I’m pretty sure that everything that was filed in regards to the civil case I helped with was placed in the same file as the main action.
