SANTA ANA, Calif. " On Sept. 8, U.S. District Court Judge David O. Carter ordered a scheduling conference for Oct. 5, 2009, allowing the Obama eligibility case filed by Dr. Orly Taitz, Esq. on behalf Captain Pamela Barnett, Alan Keyes and others to proceed.
Carter wrote, “The responsibility for the progress of litigation in the federal courts falls not only upon attorneys in the action, but upon the court as well. Accordingly, the court issues this order.”
Taitz filed a declaration of Lucas Daniel Smith with an exhibit on Friday.
Smith, a 29-year-old American citizen from Iowa, signed an affidavit, under penalty of perjury, stating he “traveled to Kenya and Mombasa, in particular, with the intent to obtain the original birth certificate of Barack Hussein Obama,” as he was told previously it was on file in the hospital and under seal, due to the fact the Kenyan Prime Minister is Obama’s cousin.
Smith states he visited Coast General Hospital in Mombasa, Kenya on Feb. 19, 2009, accompanied by a citizen of the Democratic Republic of Congo, and said he had to pay a cash “consideration” to a Kenyan military officer on duty to look the other way while he obtained the copy of the birth certificate....
gungasnake, never met a conspiracy theory he didn't believe:
From Wikipedia, "Barck Obama citizenship conspiracy theories"
"On August 2, 2009, Orly Taitz released and attached to court documents what she alleged to be an authentic Kenyan birth certificate. Legal documents submitted describe the document as an "unauthenticated color photocopy of certified copy of registration of birth".  The document was almost immediately revealed to be a forgery. It purports to have been issued by the "Republic of Kenya", when in fact, such a state did not yet exist at the time of Obama's birth as indicated on the document (Kenya was a Dominion of the British Crown until 1963).  Mombasa, the city indicated on the certificate as Obama's birthplace, was, in 1961, in theory part of Zanzibar, but actually part of Kenya.  Subsequently, evidence was unearthed that the alleged Kenyan birth certificate is a modified version of a 1959 Australian birth certificate found on an online genealogy website.  The Washington Independent website cited an anonymous blogger as having taken credit for the forgery and posting four photos substantiating the claim. Examples of actual 1961 Kenyan birth certificates have also been revealed, which look substantially different from the document Taitz submitted to the court."
