It appears as though Hillary Clinton isn’t the only one who is above the law these days. Apparently President Obama and Loretta Lynch really know how to play the shell-game. One would think Lynch would be watching her behavior after the appearance of a conflict of interest in meeting privately on an airplane with Bill Clinton right before the final Benghazi report came out, but apparently not.
President Obama. along with the top law officer of the United States, Loretta Lynch, as the Attorney general made life extremely difficult for a veteran law enforcement officer and process server to deliver a Federal District Court Summons and Amended Complaint in the nation’s capital a few weeks ago.
The rules for serving process are very clear under the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and it should not take a Harvard graduate to make an appointment to accept service. It is a simple routine process that is not complicated. However, in this case, the US Marshalls may need to get involved.
Mr. Gregory, a retired law enforcement official of 32 years, was tasked with serving the legal documents to the President of the United States and head of the DOJ among other prominent federal officials that oversee subordinate agencies under the Executive Branch of government. He was successful with serving every agency on his list, wherein authorized representatives accepted service of the Bilbro Lawsuit, except for President Obama, the Whitehouse staff, the DOJ and Loretta Lynch.
It was during the attempted delivery that Mr. Gregory was made to wait outside the White House for two hours in the heat, while the uniformed officers spoke to Obama’s legal team. He was informed that an appointment would be made for him with someone who would accept the Lawsuit. After staying an additional day to make the appointment, the Defendants named gave the process server the run around.
In the end they never accepted the papers, but instead sent him on a wild goose chase to the DOJ building where an appointment supposedly was made for him with a “Ms. Monique Nixon” who would accept the papers. After nearly 2 more hours, Ms. Nixon was a “NO Show” and Mr. Gregory finally had to leave without accomplishing his task. The Amended Summons and Complaint have been mailed certified to an address that the Secret Service gave Mr. Gregory, and the Plaintiff is waiting for the signed proof of certified service.
The lawsuit involved was filed in February by Ms. Lauren Martel, an attorney for Mr. Brian Bilbro, which named Governor Nikki Haley as well as specific non-profits and the subordinate agencies responsible for resettling refugees in South Carolina. The “non-governmental agencies” that are heavily funded by the government are Lutheran Services and World Relief. Very early on Lutheran Services retained the Southern Poverty Law Center to represent their interests in this Lawsuit. It has now expanded to demonstrate an amazing stand of courage and will be heard in the Federal District Court of Columbia SC.
Martel, who received her BA and JD from Syracuse University, is a seasoned lawyer who has been in practice serving the people of the Low country since 1992. She is from a lineage of leaders who fought for liberty and freedom and enlightened society. As an attorney of over 24 years, Lauren has argued in the Supreme Court of South Carolina, lent her legal talent to countless successful businesses and leaders across the country, and has spearheaded several initiatives on the restoration of families and communities. Both she and Bilbro speak publically about these issues.
Martel says that the President and Defendants are not above the law and are subject to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. Apparently the case took a necessary advance when she filed the Amended Summons and Complaint with the Federal District Court in Columbia, South Carolina.
As a result of a decision to stay in Federal Court Bilbro and Martel added many new causes of action and new Defendants to the lawsuit. Those added to the suit are, most notably President Barak Obama, DOJ head, Loretta Lynch, DHS, Immigration, Leon Rodriguez and the Department of Treasury and other prominent federal officials. New State Agencies were added as well. See Amended Summons.
Bilbro who has a wife and young daughters maintains serious, well-founded concerns about how the refugee program may affect he and his family’s personal security, livelihood and the country’s national security. He seeks to stop this overreaching federal program before irreparable harm is suffered either by him or any other South Carolinian due to the ramifications of it. He cites specific taxpayer loss and adds the claims set out in the Brownsville Lawsuit that was successful in upholding a restraining order preventing further abuse of executive amnesty and executive overreach.
The concerns of imminent risk to his family are bolstered by three experts, one being Michael Cutler who has an extensive background in immigration and testified in front of the 9/11 Commission. Adding weight to his worry is the recent sexual assault of a five year old in Twin Falls, Idaho by immigrant Muslim boys, and the horrific behavior of 20 Somali men who terrorized a neighborhood, threatening the rape of a housewife in Minneapolis, Minnesota just last week.
This attempt to stall by making it difficult on a veteran law enforcement process server won’t affect Martel as she moves forward. All the Defendants will be served, eventually. She believes Bilbro has a substantial interest as a taxpayer in this case because the Refugee Program provides immigrants access to all federal, state and local welfare programs when they enter the US. This fact heaps an insurmountable financial burden and taxpayer loss on the American citizens who have a stake in the economic, educational and public safety health of the country.
Parts of the United States v.Texas case related to DAPA/DACA that was just decided by a split decision in the Supreme Court last month, will be cited in Bilbro’s case. The decision allowed the United States District Court ruling in Brownsville, Texas by Judge Andrew Hanen to stand.
The case brought light to the constitutional Take Care Clause, which essentially holds the president accountable to “take care that the Laws be faithfully executed.” This clause is also being relied on in the South Carolina lawsuit.
Martel believes we are in a period of time where the legal system is being used to engage in what is known as “Lawfare”. She says it’s crucial that Justice and Due Process of Law and the Take Care Doctrine be infused back into American Jurisprudence. Her Amended Complaint speaks to all of the meritorious claims and violations of the State and US Constitutions.
Incidentally in the Brownsville, Texas case, Governor Nikki Haley and the state of South Carolina are Plaintiffs against the federal government and Obama. In the Bilbro Lawsuit, Haley is on the same side as Obama, taking a very inconsistent position in official legal matters.
Another sticking point for Bilbro is the fact that Family Court is being used by asylum seekers as a way to circumvent the vetting process while encouraging border smuggling of children and further criminal acts. Another expert witness in the Bilbro Lawsuit, Jessica Vaughn, states:
“The government and its contractors do not conduct background checks on the individuals who volunteer to serve as sponsors for the minors.”
This displays yet another way the government has systematically ignored the proper laws and created policy that willfully disregards Americans’ personal and public safety as well as their tax payer dollars.
Bilbro is simply trying to protect his family against an administration that has a track record of not being concerned about the citizens of this country. He is silhouetting himself by standing against government overreach and by doing that attempting to provide public safety for others. The public should be supporting and watching this case closely.
