    “Fairness Doctrine” or communism. Everybody knows that in communist China the press is controlled. ‘bamy will fail at this. I predict that nothing will come of it and it will be protected under Freedom of the Press and Freedom of Speech. Let’s review what the Supreme Court has said about Freedom of Speech in the past. You have Freedom of Speech but you do not have the freedom to shout “Fire” in a crowded theatre. Now let’s review what ‘bamy has done with his campaign promises. Pulling troops out of Iraq within 11 months. His target as of now is August 2010. You’ll have a good one and I’ll be back shortly enough with more earth shattering facts…

    In regard’s to Judge Robertson’s order:
    (WHY DID OBAMA’S LAWYER, BOB BAUER EVEN SHOW UP AT COURT
    UNLESS THERE WAS A CONNECTION.)

    ON OBAMA’S ILLINOIS BAR EXAM, WHEN ASKED IF HE EVER WENT BY
    ANY OTHER NAME(s). HE LEFT IT BLANK. WHY DOESN’T THAT BE LOOKED INTO.

    The lawsuit didn’t even use Obama’s legal name but called him “Barry Soetoro,” the name he went by while attending elementary school in Indonesia. It’s one of many that has been filed claiming Obama is ineligible to serve as president.

    Robertson ordered plaintiff’s attorney John Hemenway of Colorado Springs, Colo., to show why he hasn’t violated court rules barring frivolous and harassing cases and shouldn’t have to pay Obama’s attorney, Bob Bauer, for his time arguing that the case should be thrown out.

    Poppet,

    “The lawsuit didn’t even use Obama’s legal name but called him “Barry Soetoro,” the name he went by while attending elementary school in Indonesia. It’s one of many that has been filed claiming Obama is ineligible to serve as president.”

    Philip Berg presented the case as “Gregory Hollister vs Barry Soetoro et al., so Judge Robertson dimissed the case as it was filed. The Judge does refer to Obama as President Obama in the memo accompaning the order.

    Defend Our Freedoms Foundation Posted the following

    Judge James Robertson should be removed from the bench
    Please read some background on the judge that decided Hollister v Soetoro. This judge should be removed from the bench. Additionally you will be able to understand why I am skeptical of our judiciary and why I believe, that it ultimately will be up to our military to arrest and prosecute the Usurper in Chief for massive fraud of American citizens and treason.

    Here is a little background info on Judge Robertson. It clearly shows he was biased from the beginning and had a defiant conflict of interest and should have recused himself..

    Appointed by Clinton.

    From 1965 to 1969, he was in private practice with the law firm of Wilmer, Cutler & Pickering. From 1969 to 1972, Judge Robertson served with the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, as chief counsel of the Committee’s litigation offices in Jackson, Mississippi, and as director in Washington, D.C. Judge Robertson then returned to private practice with Wilmer, Cutler & Pickering, where he practiced until his appointment to the federal bench. While in private practice, he served as president of the District of Columbia Bar, co-chair of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, and president of Southern Africa Legal Services and Legal Education Project, Inc. Now Wilmer, Cutler and Pickering is also known as WilmerHale LLP. ( the 23rd largest law firm in the world ) They donated $119,245 to the Obama campaign.

    Obama served on the board of the Chicago branch of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law.

    Below is a link that explains the : Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law. If you look at the questionnaire part 1, you will see where Obama lists that he was a member of this committee. The judge was the co-chair of the committee. This link also explains about what this committee did.

    Link

    Here is an excerpt from an article on what the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law does :

    Uses the courts to bypass the electorate and its officials in order to gain what it perceives as desirable and “just” outcomes

    Today LCCR uses the courts to mandate race-based affirmative action preferences in business and academia. Its “major objective” is “to use the skills and resources of the bar to obtain equal opportunity for minorities by addressing factors that contribute to racial justice and economic opportunity.” “Given our nation’s history of racial discrimination, de jure segregation, and the de facto inequities that persist,” LCCR elaborates, “the Lawyers’ Committee’s primary focus is to represent the interest of African Americans in particular, other racial and ethnic minorities, and other victims of discrimination, where doing so can help to secure justice for all racial and ethnic minorities.” …

    An article about this judge: Article

    From the last paragraph:

    Of course, the media neglect to mention that Judge Robertson was responsible for dropping two charges against Clintonista and Friend of Hillary, Web Hubbell. “Don’t be surprised if Democrats win the White House one of their nominations to the Supreme Court is Judge James Robertson. Don’t be surprised, ” said Sid Francis

    —–

    Here is the link to the judges opinion. It looks like something written by a 10 year old.
    https://ecf.dcd.uscourts.gov/cgi-bin/show_public_doc?2008cv2254-21

    Now a couple of quotes from his opinion:

    …..because it has not been proven — to the colonel’s satisfaction — that Mr. Obama is a native-born American citizen,….

    This shows that this idiot judge didn’t even read the stuff presented to him or doesn’t under stand the difference between native-born and natural-born.

    ….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…..

    This judge is actually ridiculing a plaintiff for wanting to have a legal issue decided by a court ? In the judges opinion, blogs and public vote decide a Constitutional issue and it is a nuisance to the court to even have to consider it ?

    …That case was the subject of a scholarly opinion by a judge who took Mr. Berg’s claims seriously –- and dismissed them….

    The merits of the case were never heard by Surrick . It was dismissed on lack of standing

    And finally …

    ….Mr. Berg and Lawrence J. Joyce, an attorney who lives in Tucson, Arizona, signed the complaint in this case. (They have been filing electronically although they have not been admitted pro hac vice, see [#10].) They are agents provocateurs

    An agent provocateur is a person employed by the police or other entity to act undercover to entice or provoke another person to commit an illegal act. He is suggesting that Hollister is committing an illegal act by filing this suit and that Berg encouraged him to do so. Plus the other disparaging remarks he made about Hollister not being the real plaintiff, that it was really Berg. Those are outrageous ( and if not done in a court opinion – libelous ) allegations for a public official, let alone a judge- to make about a party in a lawsuit.This judge should be removed from the bench for such biasness. In the least, if any other cases come up before him on this issue, he should be immediately challenged to be removed from the case.
