This story is not being reported anywhere but in my local papers (two). This should be a big story, because even the most skeptical person in regards to Obama’s right to hold office, has to listen to this case in Alabama. It was JUST agreed to be heard by Circuit Judge Helen Shores Lee. Before Obama and the DOJ even attempt to play the southern race card, or insinuate the Tea Party is behind the fact their party was DENIED Judge Lee is a black, registered democrat. She has served on this court since January of 2003.

I want you to think on this:

Jefferson County Circuit Judge Helen Shores Lee today denied a request to delay a hearing set for Monday to consider if she should dismiss a Birmingham man’s lawsuit seeking to block President Obama from being listed on ballots in the March 13 Alabama primary. A request by Mark Kennedy, chairman of the Alabama Democratic Party, to dismiss the suit filed against him on Dec. 14 by Birmingham resident Albert E. Hendershot. DENIED !

Instead she has set a Monday hearing on a lawsuit challenging President Barack Obama’s citizenship and right to be on the 2012 ballots in Alabama.

Now, if Albert Hendershot did not having some substantial proof, would this Judge, a democrat, even have granted Albert the hearing on (Jan. 9, at 9am cst) in Lee’s Birmingham courtroom? At the same time denying Mark Kennedy, chairman of the Alabama Democratic Party unless this has some teeth?

No! She in fact is allowing Hendershot the opportunity to present his evidence, which she must have thought worthy to even consider a hearing.

Hendershot wants Lee to issue an injunction blocking Obama from being certified as a candidate in Alabama. His suit claims he has “staggering evidence” that Obama is using a forged birth certificate and a false Social Security number.

NOTE: Federal judges dismissed lawsuits in 2008 and 2009 challenging Obama’s citizenship and right to serve as president.

“I don’t hate him,” said Albert E. Hendershot. He was an Obama supporter who became convinced the president is fraudulently using forged documents.

Before the left tries to discredit Albert, Here is his Linked In profile. I could find nothing negative about him in an extensive search.

Orly Taitz, a well-known figure in the “birther” movement that questions Obama’s citizenship and right to serve as president, announced on her web site today she has agreed to represent Albert E. Hendershot.

According to WND, Alabama is the 3rd state facing challenge over Obama candidacy. Earlier challenges to Obama’s candidacy were filed in New Hampshire as well as Georgia. State officials in New Hampshire, noting that the application was filled out and the $1,000 fee had been paid, rejected the complaint, which now is being appealed.

I have learned there are Ten states have pending proposals that would require future candidates for president to provide legal proof of their constitutional qualifications for that office. Each of these state measures is currently pending approval and is at one stage or another of the process of enactment. Without regard to the status of the various bills, what follows is an alphabetical recap of them:

(March 2011)

* In Arizona, State Representative Judy Burges joined with 16 of her colleagues from the state senate in sponsoring a bill that is being deliberated by relevant committees of the state legislature.

* In Connecticut the language of the legislation is much simpler. SB 291 requires that “the Secretary of the State to be presented with an original birth certificate of any candidate for the federal office of president or vice-president that certifies that the certificate holder is a natural-born United States citizen, prior to certifying that the candidate is qualified to appear on the ballot.” This bill, introduced by State Senator Michael McLachlan, appears stalled in the Committee on Government and Administration and Elections.

* In the Hoosier State, Indiana, State Senator Mike Delph has offered SB 114 for consideration. In a tone much like that of the other similarly-targeted measures.

* Another midwestern state, Iowa, has seen the introduction of a bill that would seek more ironclad proof of a presidential candidate’s Article II qualification. State Senator Kent Sorenson has sponsored SF 368 in an effort to accomplish that worthwhile goal.

* In Maine, the state assembly will consider a bill sponsored by Representative Richard Cebra that requires “a candidate for nomination by primary election shall [sic] show proof of United States citizenship in the form of a certified copy of the candidate’s birth certificate and the candidate’s driver’s license or other government-issued identification to the Secretary of State.”

* A bill in Nebraska that requires a candidate for president to provide “affidavits and supporting documentation” before being allowed to have his name appear on the ballot is still being debated by a state committee. Senator Rick Brinkley (R-Owasso) of Oklahoma authored SB 91.

* In Tennessee, veteran states’ rights supporter, Senator Mae Beavers (Beavers battles boldly and relentlessly to beat back the encroachment of federal statutes into the sovereign territory of the Volunteer State), has introduced SB 366 which would require all presidential candidates who wish their names on Tennessee’s ballot in presidential election years starting in 2012 to file an “original long form birth certificate” with Tennessee’s Secretary of State, along with a sworn affidavit declaring they do not hold dual citizenship in another country.

* Last, but never least, Texas, the Lone Star State, is considering HB 295. This bill would prohibit the Secretary of State from certifying for election any candidate for president or vice-president that does not present his “original birth certificate indicating that the person is a natural-born United States citizen.”

Could all of these efforts be rendered moot if President Obama would voluntarily release the exculpating documents that would prove beyond a reasonable doubt his own qualifications for the office of president? Perhaps. In the meantime, it is encouraging to see so many of the people’s duly elected state representatives riding to the defense of the Constitution on so many different fronts and using all the constitutional weapons at their disposal.

BirtherReport.com. actively pursues information about Obama’s background, reports that among the various documents for Obama that remain concealed include his passport records, kindergarten records, Punahou School records, Occidental College records, Columbia University records, Columbia thesis, Harvard Law School records, Harvard Law Review articles, University of Chicago scholarly articles, Illinois State Bar Association records, Illinois State Senate records/schedules, medical records, Obama/Dunham marriage license, Obama/Dunham divorce documents, Soetoro/Dunham marriage license and adoption records.

Keep in mind led by Texas with 34, the states seeking some law account and control 107 Electoral College votes.

In closing, Obama has so many impeachable offenses against him and yet we sure do have a ‘Do Nothing Congress’. All in the name of the 2012 Election, an ‘Inconvenient Time’. By Hook or Crook he will try to attain a second term, with TRUTH we need to make sure he does not! ~ JP

Two days after defying Republicans and appointing Richard Cordray to head the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, President Obama visited the new agency to take a little time to gloat.

Making a victory lap of sorts at the independent agency, Obama cracked a joke, telling employees that he came by to help their new director move in.

“Now that Richard is your director, you can finally exercise your responsibilities under the law,” Obama said. “We can help give people the clear and transparent information they need” to make the right financial decisions, he said.

Updated at 1:15 PM: Contacted by HUMAN EVENTS, the White House press office did not have a response, but requested questions in writing.

In a scathing letter sent to Barack Obama this morning, Senator Marco Rubio said that under the President’s first term in office, “more and more people have come to believe that America is becoming a deadbeat nation.”

Rubio went on to pledge that he would challenge any further increase in the debt ceiling, arguing that “we [Congress] need to make it routine to actually spend no more than we take in.” In the letter obtained by HUMAN EVENTS, the Florida Senator said that President Obama’s upcoming request to increase the debt ceiling by a whopping $1.2 trillion will cause the nation’s public debt to surpass the $16 trillion mark.

“I will oppose your request to continue borrowing and spending recklessly.”

President Obama is expected to request the new borrowing power from Congress once the Senate and House return from their holiday recess.

The president must notify Congress when the debt closes within $100 billion of the ceiling, according to the Budget Control Act passed in August. This triggers for Congress their only available option to block an increase, in this case $1.2 trillion, by passing legislation. However, even if the House and Senate do that, the president can still veto their objections. In short, there is very little Republicans can do in a Democratic-controlled Senate to block an increase.

If President Obama led the charge to reduce the country’s unsustainable debt in mid 2011 rather than punt the enterprise to a “Super Committee,” asserted Rubio, we’d already be on a pathway toward economic growth and prosperity. “Unfortunately, the first three years of your presidency have been a profile in leadership failure.”

The letter concludes: “America deserves leaders who will stand front and center, level with the American people about our challenges and offer real solutions to solve them. Instead of simply asking for another debt ceiling increase, I urge you to come forward with a real plan to tackle our debt in 2012.”

This is the latest salvo in the debt ceiling debate in Washington.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Just days after Iranian leaders warned the U.S. to keeps its aircraft carriers out of the Persian Gulf, a U.S. Navy ship that had just finished operations in the Gulf rescued an Iranian fishing boat that had been commandeered by suspected Somali pirates.

U.S. Navy officials said that American forces flying off the guided-missile destroyer USS Kidd responded to a distress call from the Iranian ship, the Al Molai, which had been held captive by pirates for more than 40 days.

A U.S. Navy team boarded the ship Thursday and detained 15 pirates who had been holding the 13-member Iranian crew hostage and were using the vessel as a “mother ship” for pirating operations in the Persian Gulf.

On Thursday’s O’Reilly Factor, Bill sat down with Chris Kyle, a former Navy SEAL sniper credited with 150 certified kills and author of the book American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History.

Kyle, the recipient of five Bronze Stars and two Silver Stars, revealed to O’Reilly why he punched former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura, knocking him to the floor. Kyle said that he encountered Ventura at a bar while attending the wake of a fallen SEAL, and that Ventura started bad-mouthing America, then-President Bush, and the Iraq war. When Kyle asked him to tone it down so as not to upset the family, Ventura said, “You [the Navy SEALs] deserve to lose a few guys.” Kyle then punched him and took off running!

O’Reilly asked Kyle about his experiences in Iraq, where he was deployed four times. In his book, Kyle refers to enemy Iraqis as ‘savages’. He explained why to O’Reilly saying, “The way they live day-to-day as far as the violence they commit on American troops – the beheadings, the rape of innocent villagers and townspeople, just to intimidate them. They live by putting fear into other people’s hearts. Civilized people just don’t act that way.”

See Background: Obama Bypasses Congress … AGAIN

Two of President Obama’s “recess” appointments will begin their tenure at the National Labor Relations Board without having undergone background checks required of all nominees to the board, which are used to determine any past impropriety or conflicts of interest.

The Senate committee handling the nominations of Democrats Sharon Block and Richard Griffin to the NLRB never received the required paperwork from the two nominees. The president submitted the nominations to the Senate on December 15, a day before it entered pro forma session, with most Senators returning to their home states.

~ Note ‘most’ and they were not gone for 10 days when Obama pulled this stunt. Which shows his arrogance of he can do what he damn well pleases with his unprecedented display of executive power, uncertain legal territory, threatens the confirmation process and fundamentally endangers the Congress’ role in providing a check on the excesses of the executive branch.”

While controversial, nowhere in the Constitution is a recess expressly defined, though the document does give the chief executive the “power to fill up vacancies that may happen during the recess of the Senate.”

The Senate WAS NOT in Recess! ~ JP

“The president should stop allowing his Chicago political campaign to make his Washington policy decisions,”

— Rep. Patrick McHenry, R-N.C., chairman of the Oversight Subcommittee on TARP, Financial Services and Bailouts of Public and Private Programs

The paperwork includes information required for a background check, “which addresses whether taxes are paid and if the nominee is facing any pending civil or criminal investigations,” according to a committee release. “This also ensures that there are no conflicts-of-interest before being confirmed for the position.”

After the committee receives that information, staff generally conduct interviews during which they ask nominees about the information provided. A source familiar with the committee’s advice and consent work said its staff – and hence committee members – would be woefully uninformed on the nominees until paperwork was filed and those interviews took place.

The president has invoked alleged congressional gridlock as justification for his likely-unconstitutional “recess” appointments (not actually made during a recess), repeatedly invoking his “We Can’t Wait” slogan.

“Senate Republicans’ disposition towards [the NLRB nominees] could not have been more clear,” claimed White House press secretary Jay Carney on Thursday. But committee spokesman Joe Brenckle said members had not taken positions on the nominees, for the simple reason that they had not undergone even the most basic vetting procedures. In other words, there is no evidence that the committee – let alone the full Senate – would have blocked those nominations even if they had come up for a vote.

In fact, HELP committee rules specify that action cannot be taken on a nominee until five days after the paperwork is filed. So even if members had wanted to move Block and Griffin forward, they would have been unable to do so by the committee’s own written procedures.

The Senate’s advice and consent duties act as a check on the executive, but they are also a mechanism for weeding out unsuitable or unqualified nominees. The president’s end run around the Senate is not just an affront to the separation of powers; it undermines the practical and immediate importance of the Senate’s role in vetting candidates for federal office.

This unconfirmed report goes back a few months but is simply more interesting given the mounting tensions with Iran.

An article from the May 2011 Jerusalem Post reports Tehran is building intermediate-range missile launch pads at a base on the Paraguaná Peninsula in Venezuela (via Die Welt).

The J-Post says the Revolutionary Guard-controlled engineering group Khatam al-Anbia is helping build the site said, that will include missile defenses, special forces units, and control stations.

Iran’s oil revenue is reportedly going to the construction of bunkers, watch towers, barracks, and 65 foot deep rocket silos.

The article points out that the base will allow Tehran to conduct missile strikes at “Iran’s enemies” if Iran is attacked.

From Caracas to Miami is about 1,300 miles, maybe a couple hundred more than from the Peninsula — possibly within the range of Iran’s Ashoura medium-range ballistic missile that can cover a distance of over 1,200 miles.

Update: latlongpacific sent a paper with with a more comprehensive analysis of the possible Venezuelan site along with coordinates for a possible location. The exact location from Google Earth is pictured here. The download offers details on the base and missiles that Iran would likely park there, including the Ghadr-100A with a possible range of 3,000 km or about 1,800 miles.

Iran isn’t limiting its apparent efforts to counter U.S. initiatives to South America. The Sydney Morning Herald reports Tehran has renewed its efforts to align itself with the Taliban.

Arpaio willing to go to federal court to vindicate his department

Maverick Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio is challenging the Obama administration’s Department of Justice to present evidence to back its charge that his office is discriminating against Hispanics.

“Prove it,” Arpaio said in remarks directed at Holder in an interview with WND.

“If Eric Holder has evidence that the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office has engaged in systematic violations of the civil rights of Hispanic, then show me the evidence,” Arpaio said.

Arpaio contends that the 22-page complaint the Department of Justice released Dec. 15 against his office was nothing more than anecdotal and didn’t prove there are systematic sheriff’s department policies aimed at depriving Hispanics in Maricopa County of their civil rights.

Nor was Arpaio concerned that the DOJ might take him and his sheriff’s department to federal court.

“If the Justice Department wants to take me to court, I’m ready,” Arpaio said.
