— A Kansas judge has indefinitely postponed a court hearing on an attorney's legal challenge to President Barack Obama's place on the state's Nov. 6 general election ballot.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that Shawnee County District Judge Larry Hendricks will decide first whether California attorney and dentist Orly Taitz has the standing to file a lawsuit in Kansas.

Orly Taitz, left, a California attorney and dentist, talks to reporters about her objections to President Barack Obama being listed on the ballot in Kansas after state officials took action to make sure that he is, Monday, Sept. 17, 2012, in Topeka, Kan. Behind her are Topeka activists T.J. Gaughan, center, and Sonny Scroggins, right, whose sign refers to Secretary of State Kris Kobach and Joe Montgomery, a Manhattan, Kan., man who previously had objected to Obama's candidacy.

Taitz promotes the discredited idea that Obama is not eligible to serve as president.

Last month, she sued Secretary of State Kris Kobach and a state elections board he leads after the board kept Obama on the ballot.

The board created a stir by taking time to authenticate information in a copy of Obama's birth certificate from Hawaii available online.

But Kobach is asking Hendricks to dismiss Taitz's lawsuit.

You'd think an attorney might have had the foresight to check whether or not she had standing before she filed the suit.

BRING ON EMPLOYMENT = THE GREATEST REPUBLICAN FEAR ON EARTH!!!

Repubs fear a dramatically improved quality of life for all WOULD keep them out of control for decades….. we would hope.

Keep in mind a prospering america can overcome repub fear mongering... it must.

What is the repub party afraid? Why do they ALWAYS say no?

What do Repubs fear?

--- Fear a dramatically improved quality of life for all americans

--- Fear Jobs Jobs Jobs for americans

--- Fear New USA industry thus new wealth for america

--- Fear new cleaner energy sources because it would create so many new jobs and reduce rates across the board

--- Fear Medicare Single Payer Insurance for = huge tax dollar savings to government,public schools,small business and all of us in general. Single Payer Medicare is the answer. http://www.healthcare-now.org/

--- Fear Clean Collar Industries which produce jobs that cannot be outsourced

--- Fear educated Americans because WE ask questions

--- Fear losing of tax incentives/tax breaks for the wealthy that actually create tax increases for entire spectrum of the middleclass

you all joke, but what IF THE CLAIMS ARE TRUE?

suspend your beliefs for one minute, and imagine were you to wake up tomorrow, and all the news media was talking about obama not being eligible due to fraud?

better yet, and a lot of people forget this tidbit of info:

obama himself, does not have to know anything other than he was born in the usa. it in entirely possible, someone has kept this secret from him as well.

i mean, GWB didn't know about 9/11!

Ms. Titz knows form me that the president is eiigible due to birth in Topeka Ks of natural born parents. The real dad has never been published in the media. On 9/14/12, I filed and affidavit of my eye witness account with the Sec of state of Ks. and also spent over an hour on the phone as the staff checked databases for his records. i was able to supply names and places as they searched including Forbes Air force base Hospital where my mother, Florence hardy took her to have the president. Compounding all this is that Ann was a witness and victim of a vicious racial attack on the banks of the Kansas river that left three dead and her searching for bodies that went under the water. all the authorities wanted to do wa shut her up. Ann died in 1995, still a witness that could have been called to testify if any trial had ever occurred. On 7/26/12 , after some severe chest pains, earlier that evening I began publishing on my websites and face book the circumstances and eyewitness account. I have continued each day labeled Daily recap. The media had the real story and the Topeka capital has blocked me form commenting on their stories about this. They have been sued so much by Fred Phelps ; clan ; of lawyers at westboro Baptist church where Ann was left with some of her mother's relatives to finish capper Jr HS. and they parted ways. My mother had to go get the gdnshp papers for schools signed over and I went with er one Sunday Am. and bolted form the church over the racist remarks in his sermon. Please do not fault the sec of Sate for doing his job and gong the extra mile to verify the truth. This indicates to me, that they did find the real record. Now, the president needs to be told, and may not know ye; to ask for his records. Linda Joy Adams

Hot off the press! It now appears that the real push about the Obama birth certificate validation was not based so much on the certificate itself, but on the apparent age of Barack Obama. According to Trump, Limberger, Sherrif Joe, and all the rest of the "birther"s", Obama appears to be older than he professes to be. They conclude that the 13 hour difference between Kenya and Hawaii is apparent in Obama's appearance, thus giving him more gray hair and crowsfeet than a person born 13 hours later in Hawaii. All of this based on evolutionary science, which is ironic since all of them are creationists non-Darwinites. God bless us all, each and every one!

you cannot validate an item by grabbing it off the internet. set aside your mainstream media fed brains for a little while and watch how an actual investigation works.
