    Man critical of Obama case judge visited by marshals
    'I told your Gestapo goons we had nothing to talk about'

    A Washington, D.C., man who believes Barack Obama probably isn't eligible to be president – and colorfully stated as much to a federal judge who dismissed a case challenging Obama's residency in the White House – says he got a visit from U.S. marshals for his exercise of free speech.

    Jesse Merrell told WND he was reacting to Judge James Robertson's decision to throw out a case challenging Obama's eligibility because the issue had been thoroughly "twittered."

    Merrell sarcastically gave the judge a "good-for-you."

    "How dare people use a flimsy thing like the Constitution to darken your sanctimonious door!" he wrote to the judge. "The insane idea that a blue-gum baboon slashing our Constitution has to prove U.S. citizenship – as our silly old Constitution demands – is too absurd to consider in the sacred chambers of the tiny tin gods of the Potomac, adorning the royal purple and sipping Jim Jones Kool-Aid."

    "Thanks to smug, slimy shysters like you, Obama gets a free ride – snootily stomping on our foolish Constitution, which supercilious idiots like you have long ago shredded for their own stupid opinions!" Merrell continued in the letter, a copy of which he provided to WND.

    He finished with his speculation on what "ought" to happen to the judge, a physical act not appropriate for a family-oriented report.

    A short time later, he said he found two U.S. marshals on his doorstep.

    "After reading your story about Federal Judge James Robertson dismissing a suit challenging Obama's natural born citizenship, and suggesting sanctions, I wrote him a very critical letter," Merrell told WND. "Two U.S. marshals came to visit me, making threats to silence me.

    "I told them unless the First Amendment had been repealed, or they had a warrant for my arrest, we had nothing to discuss," he continued. "But they insisted on coming in, and making further threats.

    "I responded with another letter, with firm language, but nothing I haven't used for 30 years, and quoting Thomas Jefferson's warning to bind judges with the 'chains of the Constitution' to prevent mischief."

    WND called the U.S. marshals service for comment, but there was no comment on the specific case. A WND message left for one of the officers involved also was not returned.

    A media office spokeswoman who took the message did confirm that "anyone who may write a letter referencing a judge or put something in a letter causing the marshals to be concerned about the well-being of a judge, they would look into it."

    Merrell told WND his particular dislike of "government tyranny" has existed "since my fourth-great-grandfather, Captain Benjamin Merrell, was hanged – hanged, drawn and quartered – by the British Royal Governor of North Carolina in 1771 for protesting high and unjust taxes."

    Where's the proof Barack Obama was born in the U.S. or that he fulfills the "natural-born American" clause in the Constitution? If you still want to see it, join more than 335,000 others and sign up now!

    In his followup letter to the judge, Merrell's language was a little more salty.

    "I told your Gestapo goons, of course, that unless the First Amendment had been repealed, or they were there to arrest me, that we had nothing to talk about.," Merrell's letter said ."One of your Brown-Shirt Nazi bullies, however, could not resist threatening me with some obscure law – one he didn't know where it was, or when it was created – which he said made it a crime to say something that caused a federal judge 'emotional distress.'

    "Emotional distress? What unbelievably unadulterated horses---!" Merrell wrote. "What about the repulsive, stomach-turning 'emotional distress' you black-robed baboons speciously dish out to the American people daily – haughtily spitting on our precious Constitution with your nauseating, decency-stomping, judicial-jack--- slobber!

    "If it is illegal for a Constitution-loving citizen to chastise a Constitution-scorning judge, who has spitefully spat on America's consecrated moral bedrock, then the slimy, steel-laden tentacles of unspeakable tyranny are already wrapped tightly around helpless citizens – awaiting the final hideous strangulation.

    "But not as long as one end of my red-blooded tongue is loose!" Merrell's letter said.

    He put the challenge directly to the judge:

    "The Constitution clearly states, with no possible ambiguity – in Article 2, Section 1 – that 'No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President,'" he wrote.

    "America is going down the drain – economically and Constitutionally, with terrorists and illegal aliens pouring across our borders like invading armies practically unopposed – but our insufferable, over-bloated, dictatorial government, while turning a blind eye to all that, has time and money to send two high-paid federal marshals – probably $130,000.00 each – to harass a citizen daring to exercise his precious First Amendment rights, which you want to destroy," he wrote.

    "When you solemnly swear to uphold and defend the Constitution – then loathsomely lacerate and despicably desecrate that hallowed document – perhaps you should fear for your safety, for you have stopped being a dutiful servant of the people, and started arrogating unto yourself the venomous trappings of their tyrannical slave-master," he wrote.

    "Oh, and my ancestor, Captain Benjamin Merrell, wasn't just hanged – but hanged, drawn and quartered: which means he was hanged, but taken down while yet alive, his abdomen violently sliced open and his entrails cruelly cut out and brutally thrown in his face and set afire...and then his body barbarically slashed into four quarters," Merrell wrote. "So, naturally, I'm more than a little suspicious of dictatorial power such as you brandish. And I'm not alone."

    WND reported a challenge to the judge from the lawyer handling the case. Robertson threatened attorney John D. Hemenway with sanctions for representing client Gregory S. Hollister. Hollister is a retired military officer subject to being recalled who is demanding to know Obama's eligibility to discern whether any orders from the president would be legal.

    Robertson dismissed the case, ridiculing questions of eligibility as having already been "blogged, texted, twittered and otherwise massaged."

    Hollister is represented by Philadelphia lawyer Philip Berg, who has brought several motions on the eligibility dispute to the U.S. Supreme Court that have been ignored. Hemenway acted as local counsel in filing the action on behalf of Hollister.

    Robertson wrote: "The plaintiff says that he is a retired Air Force colonel who continues to owe fealty to his Commander-in-Chief (because he might possibly be recalled to duty) and who is tortured by uncertainty as to whether he would have to obey orders from Barack Obama because it has not been proven – to the colonel's satisfaction – that Mr. Obama is a native-born American citizen, qualified under the Constitution to be president.

    "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," Robertson wrote.

    Hemenway has responded with a suggestion that if the judge wants to pursue sanctions, the attorney then would seek a discovery hearing to demand the president's original birth certificate as court procedures would allow.

    The clients concerns also are valid, he wrote.

    "These are not frivolous matters, as the learned Judge Robertson has suggested. Possible illegal orders are a matter of great concern to officers in the armed forces. … The legality of orders in and out of combat is of paramount importance," he wrote.

    The lawyer also criticized the judge for citing hearsay in his court opinion.

    "It is not helpful for a United States district judge to endorse obfuscation when a constitutional issue is involved. Under these circumstances, to threaten sanctions against an attorney who, in good faith assisted in the filing of a lawsuit involving issues none of the many judges and attorneys from coast to coast have found 'frivolous' is to employ the Rule 11 as a device to deprive the undersigned attorney of his civil rights and the right to due process. Without even a hearing or access to discovery being granted to defend against the charges, such a sanction would be a veritable lynching," Hemenway challenged.

    "If the court persists in pressing Rule 11 procedures against Hemenway, then Hemenway should be allowed all of the discovery pertinent to the procedures as court precedents have permitted in the past," he said.

    "The court has referred to a number of facts outside of the record of this particular case and, therefore, the undersigned is particularly entitled to a hearing to get the truth of those matters into the record. This may require the court to authorize some discovery," Hemenway said.

    I guess that Kool-Aid tastes good to some people, not me! :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad:

    Good for Mr. Merrell. We all may be in his situation before long. Once they have our guns the only thing we'll have to shoot off is our mouths. Imagine the time U.S. Marshalls would have with a Thomas Paine or John Adams.

    Ditto, ROMT.
    He could have done without the blue gum comment, but I'd raise a glass to Mr. Merrell and his long dead kin. ;)

    If obama had what he needs to prove his citizenship would he have spent over $800,000 in legal fees so far to keep it hidden?

    I like that Merrell guy, he has a colorful way of getting his point across. I'd buy him a drink anytime.

    "Be cool or be cast out!" -Rush

    When the ACLU and other anti-American organizations send amicus briefs to the court they are expressing their opinion, obviously. What is less than obvious is the threat that, "If you the Judge don't see things our way then you will be mocked privately by us, your peers."

    When was it that the marshals knocked on the ACLU's doors to tell them to stop exposing the judge to "emotional distress"?

    Mr. Merril certainly has a unique use of adjectives. I hope that he stood his ground and not permit the marshals entrance into his home without a warrant.

    I beg to differ Sir, are they listening to us now, when we are presumed to be taking the high road? To date, what has "taking the high road" achieved for us? Has it changed anyone's mind or are we just doing it so we are not "pulled down to their level?" At what point does one do away with niceties to win the war? I'm not saying I would have used the "blue gum" verbiage, but we need to make up our minds that this thing is going to get dirty and to win, we may have to get dirty ourselves, and I am perfectly okay with that. If being "mean spirited" is the only way I can get their attention, then look out because the sh!t is about to hit the fan.

    Case in Point: I'm tired of being labeled as a right wing Nazi by the Drive By's. I am not a Nazi and all Nazi's are LEFT WINGERS. They are Marxist, Socialist, Communists, Progressives, all of them espouse liberal ideas, so they are all LIBERALS and it's high time we redefine it for the F-ing liberal media pigs. The Drive By's are nothing more than Socialist wh_ _ _ s! :mad:

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not upset in the least with you. I just had to rant. ;)
