The Betrayal blog, as it often does, reports/copies information from Dr. Orly Taitz, DDS as in an article entitled: A Raft of Subpoenas. I’ve commented on the ridiculous lawsuit already in my article: Alan Keyes Needs a Good Lawyer , but I let fly on The Betrayal just now anyway.
Orly/Betrayal: As per Executive Order: Granting Reciprocity on Excepted Service and Federal Contractor Employee Fitness and Reinvestigating Individuals in Positions of Public Trust, see attached, please provide copies of any and all records in regards to level of character and conduct necessary pertaining to Barack H. Obama, a/k/a Barack H. Obama, II a/k/a Barry Obama, a/k/a Barry Soetoro. These documents have direct relation to holding a Position of Public Trust.
Dr. Conspiracy: Dr. Orly failed to read the fine print at the end of the Bush executive order which in plain language says it cannot be used as grounds for a lawsuit. See section 7(d) which says: “(d) This order is intended only to improve the internal management of the executive branch and is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its agencies, instrumentalities, or entities, its officers, employees or agents, or any other person.”
Oh, and “Sec. 8. Effective Date and Applicability. This order is effective upon issuance and is applicable to individuals newly appointed to excepted service positions or hired as contractor employees beginning 90 days from the effective date of this order.”
Which points out that it wouldn’t apply to the President (not a Federal Contractor nor a Civil Service employee) and it even if it did, President Obama was “hired” before 90 days after the signing of the order on January 16, 2009 and hence it’s “not applicable”.
I’m not sure what this lawsuit was for, but winning is clearly not the reason.
The Bush executive order cited by Orly has disappeared from the White House web site, I suppose due to some house cleaning by the Obama webmaster, and possibly because Obama canceled it. Of course, I have friends inside who got me a copy. [That’s inside the Google cache, not inside the White House.]
