More social-security troubles for the President?

Gregory Hollister, plaintiff in Hollister v Soetoro, has put forward a story that pours salt on Barack Obama’s social-security number wounds.

Readers will recall that dentist cum attorney Orly Taitz, Esq. DDS sloppily redacted social-security numbers for Barack Obama and others in one of her court filings, announcing to the world Barack Obama’s number. Journalist Spencer Kornhaber verified that this is the number that President Obama used when registering with the Selective Service in 1980 through a public Selective Service verification web site. reports that Hollister used the Social Security Number Verification System (SSNVS) provided for employers by the Social Security Administration to verify Obama’s published number with the SSA, and claims that the SSA system said, “SSN not in file (never issued)”. Following is an image that claims to show the verification (or lack thereof) for President Obama:

What’s wrong with this picture? Simply stated, what Hollister claims to have done is a crime: Continue Reading →

High court rejects rehearing in Hollister

The denial by the Supreme Court of a request for reconsideration of its previous denial in Hollister v Soetoro1 was considered by me, even here in this den of Obama conspiracy stuff, too unimportant to warrant an article. It was a foregone conclusion; nothing really “happened”.

I wouldn’t be writing about it now except that CNN reported the story and it was picked up by a Fox News station in Kansas City, MO. So if the Supreme Court’s denial is not news, the CNN coverage is.

So, if you haven’t heard, Gregory Hollister asked the two justices appointed by President Obama to recuse themselves, and that the Court reconsider his petition to review the dismissal of his lawsuit over Obama’s eligibility.

However, the Court didn’t even ask President Obama to reply. No recusal, no reconsideration, end of story except that CNN reported it.

Hollister v. Soetoro Dismissed

Philip Berg

Philip Berg

In a strongly-worded memorandum and order today, Judge James Robertson of the US District Court for the District of Columbia dismissed Philip Berg’s “interpleader” lawsuit, Hollister v. Soetoro. The court said: “I do have jurisdiction” dismissing the suit for failure to state a claim (since the interpleader claim had already been ruled “frivolous”).

Judge Robertson, who acknowledged that the issues raised by Berg were important on the bolgosphere and among conspiracy theorists went on to say:

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.

But it gets worse for the plaintiffs: Continue Reading →

Snowball's chance in hell

Gregory Hollister (and lawyer Philip J. Berg) is suing President Obama and Vice-President Biden to force them to settle their dispute over which one of them is really president. The action is called an “interpleader” suit, typically used by insurance companies to force the issue of who they should pay a policy to by bringing a suit against the claimants so that the court decides the issue.
