PASADENA (CBS) — Despite the long-form birth certificate released by President Barack Obama last week, lawyers Gary Kreep and Orly Taitz will appear before a three-judge federal Appeals Court panel in Pasadena Monday to argue that he cannot be president of the United States.

Kreep has said he and Taitz are unfazed by the president’s release of his Hawaiian birth certificate last week.

Kreep and Taitz have lost several legal efforts to disqualify the president from holding that office, and have faced sanctions for abusing the federal court system.

“The only recourse for the people is the courts,” Kreep, who is based in Ramona, told the panel. “Nobody has been willing to take on Mr. Obama.

Taitz, of Rancho Santa Margarita, added, “Mr. Obama, the evidence shows, committed a fraud.”

Assistant U.S. Attorney David DeJute insisted that the courts were not the proper venue to challenge the president, saying only Congress can do so through the impeachment process.

The panel heard about an hour of arguments, then took the matter under submission.

Taitz has already been sanctioned by a federal judge in Georgia for misusing the court system to press the issue, but has three separate court actions pending to challenge President’s Obama’s qualifications to serve the nation. She told City News Service last week that she questions the birth certificate’s authenticity because it lists the president’s father’s race as African, instead of negro.

Kreep and Taitz also will challenge the president’s citizenship because they believe he was adopted by a foster father while living in Indonesia as a child, according to the United States Justice Foundation, of which Kreep is the foundation’s executive director.

    For a believer, no evidence is needed. For a skeptic, no amount of evidence is enough!

    Doesn’t matter, Obama will be out of office in 2012.

    He did not create new jobs as promised in his 2008 campaign..

    He did not end the WAR as promised in his 2008 campaign..

    Unpopular Universal Health Care Law which is gonna cost $1 Trillion a year to maintain..

        Pinhead racist. What a loser, go back to your trailor and put on a shirt. Oops, you might be my son.

      2. joke says:

        Why not?They blame him for our economy, that is a result of the previous idiot.

      3. AJ Morgan says:

        Hardly a racist TB. Though I do notice that’s the only thing people like have to say when your beloved is ever slighted. You think simply because someone doesn’t like him or approve of him, they have to be a racist. Typical of the Bama Sheoples.

        He’s doing what all other Presidents do, taking credit for other peoples work, will use it to further his own goals, and distracting the week minded simpletons to the fact he hasn’t kept his caampaign promises.

        So far, he has been a waste of my vote.

      4. AJ Morgan says:

        @ Joke; Bush and his republican fanatics did more harm to this nation than any president in recent memory.

        I would have loved to of seen his ‘used car salesman’ face when he saw the OBL was taken out, and he couldn’t claim credit for it.

    Tea baggers, dirt baggers. Whatever.

  9. J Cryst says:

    Let’s send them out to the bottom of the sea to check if Bin Laden is really dead.

    1. DMAN says:

      There is one race in the US, that constantly refuses to change, while they accuse the other races of not assimalating.. Instead they hide behind a computer, making elementary remarks and racist insults, to account for their new found deficiencies, suddenly realized upon their awakening in a world where their historcial preferential treatment abruptly vanished when they laid eyes on a President that no longer reminded them of their Great Grandfather..The irony of it all is that they claim to be “civilized”…..

  10. Shiloh says:

    The guy’s name is “kreep”? How appropriate.

  11. Elephant Memory says:

    Don’t forget Obama promised to close GITMO Bay

    Don’t forget Obama promised to get OUTSOURCED JOBS back to the U.S. and tax Corporations that didn’t bring jobs back here…

    Those Corporations said if that happened they would just leave the U.S. altogether and they would not have any jobs here. (Throw the Americans a few crumbs)

    1. Sharon Filipski says:

      Obama promised many things to lots of people. Jobs, Medical Care for Free to those who voted for him..Has he delivered? He has borrowed the U.S. so far in debt with his Credit Card..He had Cah for Clunkers, Cash for new Appliance and Going Green, has that created JOBS? Nothing he promised besides HealthCAre which no one gets until 2014……..Now you give him credit for killing Bin Laden..If it wasn’t for Bush water boarding the Radical Muslims, Bin Laden would still be alive……Wake up people…….Promises are made to be BROKEN by Obama……

  12. Eric D. Doane says:

    The form used for the certivicate of live birth (upper left corner) indicates STATE OF HAWAII. The birth certificate shows Obama’s date of birth as August 4, 1961. Hawaii became a territory on August 12, 1898 and did not become a State until Agust 21, 1959. Therefore, Obama was not born in the United States, but rather the Territory of Hawaii which does not qualify him citzenship to the United States. Finally, The citzenship rules for people born outside of the United Stes between December 23, 1952 and November 13, 1986 must have two (both) US citzen parents at the time of birth of their child. Obama’s father was not a US citzen at that time. Therefor, Barack Hussein Obama is not a US citizen as defined by immigration citizenship rules. I appears that people in Washington do not read the laws, just like the ones they vote on without reading or understanding.

    “…because it lists the president’s father’s race as African, instead of negro”????

    These idiots must not have any kids. If they did they would know that race classification on a birth certificate is provided by the PARENT who fills out the BC questionnaire. “Race of Parent” is not a multiple choice field (you must actually spell out whatever you decide to put in this box, just as you do for all other boxes).

    Secondly, although the term “Negro” was commonly used as race classification for black Americans at that time, Obama’s father would not be considered as “Negro”, simply because he is African (which is not the same as “Negro” or “Black”). Only an ignorant person would have used “Negro” in place of African in this case.

    Heck, my BC (as well as siblings) has the word “Creole” listed as race of parents, and I was born the year BEFORE Obama …in the USA.

  14. Desiree says:

    I response to Eric – I’m a little confused about your comment. If Hawaii became a state in 1959 and Obama was born 2 years later in 1961, I don’t understand your point that he was NOT born in the United States? Am I missing something?

    1. AJ Morgan says:

      He sounds like another fanatical birther.

      Hey birther, time to find a new dead horse to pound on!

    2. beth says:

      you must reread this look at the differance between Territory and state then you will understand the tweet

  15. Tony95683 says:

    The Obama birth certificate is counterfeit and not worth the $25,000 Obama paid for the fraud.
    *Obama daddy’s country of origin is British East Africa not Kenya that did not exist til 1964.
    * Stanley Ann Dunham signed the BC as Stanley Ann Dunham Obama. She was a single mom and never married Obama’s father.
    *Race of father: ‘African’ African is not a race.
    Race categories in 1961 were Caucasian, Negro, and Other… African was never used.
    *Baby Obama is listed as not ‘Jr’, but ‘II’ which is only used for royalty.
    * Opening the BC on Illustrator produces layers of MANY grouped images, including sections of the background image. It appears they were using Photoshop to paste the
    images on the BC lifted from other BC.
    *Seattle is a possible place of birth for Obama because his mother was attending the University of Washington in the fall semester three weeks after Obama was born.
