The countdown has officially begun. Barack Hussein Obama is due in court this Thursday, January 26, 2012 to be held accountable to the American people after nearly four years of dodging our demands for his long-form birth certificate.

And now, we know just how his lawyers are attempting to yet again get him out of proving his citizenship eligibility to be President of the United States…

“Presidential electors and Congress, not the state of Georgia, hold the constitutional responsibility for determining the qualifications of presidential candidates,” Obama’s lawyer argued in a since rejected attempt to prevent Obama from appearing at the hearings beginning on Jan. 26.

“The election of President Obama by the presidential electors, confirmed by Congress, makes the documents and testimony sought by plaintiff irrelevant,” Obama’s lawyer said.

You read that right, folks.

Obama’s dream-team of lawyers are arguing that, because of the electoral system, Barack Hussein Obama is not accountable to the American people.

(NaturalNews) The first-ever lawsuit hinging on the link between DES and breast cancer may soon come to court in Boston. Fifty-three DES daughters are attempting to sue 14 drug manufacturers for the health consequences of one of the pharmaceutical industry’s more notorious products.

Big Pharma trying to avoid lawsuit
The synthetic estrogen DES or diethylstilbestrol (day-eth-uhl-stil-bes’-trawl) was prescribed to millions of pregnant women from 1938 until 1971 to prevent miscarriages. In 1971, the FDA told doctors to stop prescribing the drug for pregnant women after a study indicated the pharmaceutical hormone broke through the uterine barrier and had an impact on children later in life. DES taken during pregnancy is linked to DES daughters developing a rare vaginal cancer in their teens and 20s. Since the early 70s, thousands of lawsuits have been filed regarding links between DES and cancers, as well as infertility problems. Many of those cases were settled out of court.

Placement of the GPS tracking device on the Jeep violates the Fourth Amendment’s protection against ‘unreasonable search and seizure’

AP/Washington Post
January 23, 2012

The Supreme Court ruled unanimously Monday that police must get a search warrant before using GPS technology to track criminal suspects.

The GPS device helped authorities link Washington, D.C., nightclub owner Antoine Jones to a suburban house used to stash money and drugs. He was sentenced to life in prison before the appeals court overturned the conviction.

Associate Justice Antonin Scalia said that the government’s installation of a GPS device, and its use to monitor the vehicle’s movements, constitutes a search, meaning that a warrant is required.

“By attaching the device to the Jeep” that Jones was using, “officers encroached on a protected area,” Scalia wrote.

Police tactics of kettling protesters, used extensively during the G20 protests in London three years ago, have been upheld as lawful.

… Police in charge of the protest ordered the climate camp on Bishopsgate in the City of London to be kettled and then cleared, but officers were left to decide how much force they should use.

Video shot on the day showed demonstrators, who numbered around 4,000, trying to avoid being beaten by raising their hands in the air and chanting “This is not a riot” at police wearing helmets and riot gear.

In their decision, the appeal court judges said: “There was no valid basis for concluding that [Chief Superintendent] Johnson’s decision to contain the climate camp at 19.00 on 1 April 2009 was unlawful, as his apprehension that a breach of the peace was imminent was a reasonable view for him to have formed in the light of the information available to him at the time.”

“This will be the first time ever, since this whole thing began, that it will be looked on, on merit.” Those are the words of Carl Swensson, Republican Party Chairman of Clayton County, Georgia. “This” refers to an actual judicial hearing of the case against the eligibility of Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. to be, according to the United States Constitution, “Commander in Chief” and United States President.

The attorneys of Barack Obama requested a pretrial dismissal, as it had done on so many other occasions, against so many other cases. But yesterday, one judge denied and scheduled an official hearing of the case to commence, January 26.

The 10th Circuit Court of Appeals on Tuesday upheld a lower court that had blocked Oklahama’s controversial “Sharia ban” intended to keep Islamic law out of American courts. In a 37-page decision, the court dismissed Oklahoma’s claims that the law did not discriminate against Muslims. Over 70 percent of Oklahoma citizens voted the ban into law, until a district court in the state ruled it unconstitutional and issued an injunction to suspend it. Similar laws are currently being considered in as many as 20 other states.

An airport security officer can pat-search a passenger’s groin area for hidden drugs, as long as the officer is the same gender and the passenger doesn’t express an objection, a federal appeals court ruled Thursday.

In a case from Seattle, the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco upheld a search that found 700 pills of the painkiller oxycodone in the underwear of a man who was about to board a plane at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. The court said an officer who has a passenger’s consent for a pat-down is entitled to search the groin, a common hiding place for drugs.
