Will the Real Scott Easterling Please Stand Up?

Here’s yet another lesson on critical thinking and the nature of the Internet in spreading hoaxes and urban legends.

There is a blog named Scott Easterling on blogspot. In the article: Why I want to be Court Martialed, “Easterling” says:

My attorney, whom I have grown to respect, has informed me that I can subpoena “President” Obama, and that I can then ask the Court to direct his counsel to produce a valid, legal United States Birth Certificate. If he will do this, I will immediately obey any lawful Order he or his subordinates render.

But is this really Lt. Scott Easterling’s Blog? Commenters here at Obama Conspiracy Theories have been skeptical. Now Orly Taitz says:
1st Lt. Scott R. Easterling Does NOT Have a Blog.

Who do you trust? Do you trust a name on a blog? Do you trust Orly Taitz?

    Hi! I want to know:
    (1) Is Lt Scott Easterling really in the U.S. Army, and if so, is he really on active duty?

    (2) Is Lt Scott Easterling an imaginary plaintiff that Dr. Orly Taitz, Esq. created?

    (3) Is Dr. Orly Taitz, Esq. from Russia, and is she NOT a natural born citizen herself?

    (4) Does Dr. Orly Taitz, Esq. really have a license to practice law?

    (5) Does President Obama have the 14 years RESIDENCY REQUIREMENT to be President? Remember, on the Certification of Live Birth of Barack Hussein Obama is gives a legal notice:
    (Rev. 11/01)LASER which proves he received it in or after November 2001.

    (6) IF Lt. Scott Easterling is really an active duty U.S. Army combatant, then I hope he will read the legal research I did for him. What I read says that soldiers have to follow procedure in Military Tribunals. He shouldn’t be allegeldy led astray by some possibly Russian attorney who may not even be a natural born citizen herself. Scott, please read http://crisericson2010.blogspot.com where I have quoted some of the laws you might want to know.

    Sorry about the delay; the spam filter misfired.

    Hi! I want to know:
    (1) Is Lt Scott Easterling really in the U.S. Army, and if so, is he really on active duty?

    I’m fairly sure he is, based on the article about him on Military.com.

    (2) Is Lt Scott Easterling an imaginary plaintiff that Dr. Orly Taitz, Esq. created?

    I think his participation in the suit [if it’s ever filed] is real, although his BLOG is probably fake.

    (3) Is Dr. Orly Taitz, Esq. from Russia, and is she NOT a natural born citizen herself?

    That’s right. Orly Taitz emigrated to Israel, attended the Hebrew University there, and then came to the United States. She is not a natural born citizen.

    (4) Does Dr. Orly Taitz, Esq. really have a license to practice law?

    Yes. You can verify her law license on the California bar web site.

    (5) Does President Obama have the 14 years RESIDENCY REQUIREMENT to be President? Remember, on the Certification of Live Birth of Barack Hussein Obama is gives a legal notice:
    (Rev. 11/01)LASER which proves he received it in or after November 2001.

    Yes. Obama has been a resident of the United States for about 38 years (since around 1971), see Hawaiian school year books, Occidental college photos, etc. etc. I must be misunderstanding your question as the date on Obama’s birth certificate is unrelated to where he has been living.

    (6) IF Lt. Scott Easterling is really an active duty U.S. Army combatant, then I hope he will read the legal research I did for him. What I read says that soldiers have to follow procedure in Military Tribunals. He shouldn’t be allegeldy led astray by some possibly Russian attorney who may not even be a natural born citizen herself. Scott, please read http://crisericson2010.blogspot.com where I have quoted some of the laws you might want to know.

    We have some of those laws posted here in comments, and there are also extensive comments on them at Politijab.com. I think Easterling is in some serious hot water.

    If you seriously want anybody to read your blog, I suggest you change those horrific colors, to something more readable.

    Hi! I went on over to U.S. Department of Defense Press Resources and clicked on U.S. Army and submitted a question about Lt. Scott Easterling.

    http://www.defenselink.mil/faq/questions.aspx

    I also did a search for news about him in all the military news at

    http://www.defenselink.mil/news/

    and there is none.
    Apparently http://www.military.com is not an official news source.

    I am a retired atorney with 40 years of practice.

    If Orly files for a declaratory judgment, it will be dismissed. Although the Constitution does not specifically designate how the issue of “natural born citizen” is to be addressed, there is strong indication that the only way to deal with this is through an impeachment procedure in Congress.

    Using Occam’s Razor, it is clear that the Constitution and Supreme Court cases such as US v Wong Kim Ark, 169 US 649 (1898) recognize only two classes of citizen: natural born and naturalized. All citizens are one or the other.

    The birthers are trying to create multiple classes of citizenship:

    Natural born (both parents citizens),
    Native born (father citizen),
    Semi-natural born (mother citizen),
    Unnatural born (neither parent citizen),
    Naturalized.

    This is ridiculous.

    Obama gave a speech at USMC Camp Lejeune earlier today. This speech will not make Orly Happy. All those U.S. Marines cheering is certainly not good for her cause. When Obama said “Semper Fi”, those U.S. Marines cheered wildly.

    While the browser window is active, you can press alt-PrintScreen. This will put a nice sharp image of your browser windoe onto the Windows clipboard. Then must paste into a program and save to disk. You’ll get much better results than with photography.

    But why are you pasting screen images instead of just the text?

    If Orly were to get past the standing issue, and the issue of jurisdiction of the subject matter, which has not yet been raised, the then next issue would be for Obama’s counsel to move to require Orly to make the case a class action one making all 300 million of us parties. This would become a total circus, with tens of thousands of lawyers representing various groups of parties. The case would probably be tried somewhere about the year 2075.

    Re: Step Grandma Obama’s statement on which Taitz and Berg have been heavily relying.

    I have listened to the complete tape. In answer to the question of where BHO was born she clearly responded Hawaii the first time. MacRae became very flustered.

    Below is a transcript of the tape filed by Berg in One of his lawsuits. Emphasis has been added by me.

    Please note that MacRae references her son as the one running for President.

    Here is the transcript:

    BHO I was born in a very small rural village in Western Kenya; I believe that Sarah Obama (the step-mother) comes from the same village. “Present” doesn’t necessarily mean in the same room. In any case, we don’t know the relationship between the step-mother and the birth mother — they might have been very close friends. There’s a good wikipedia article describing the village, which is called Nyang’oma Kogelo:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nyang’oma_Kogelo

    (current population about 3600 — but I don’t know what it was when Obama’s father was born)..

    Expelliarmus March 1, 2009 at 10:14 pm #

    Just an added note to get a sense of how isolated that village is: the village did not get electricity until November of 2008, after Obama’s election. Sarah Obama’s house was one of the fist to be connected. See: http://www.nation.co.ke/News/-/1056/493964/-/item/0/-/ytfh4tz/-/index.html

    Expelliarmus March 1, 2009 at 10:16 pm #

    Of course — the conditions in the village are one more reason why the notion that Stanley Ann Dunham would have given birth in Kenya or that Sarah Obama could have witnessed it is preposterous.

    His certification of birth, in the lower left corner, says that the birth was recorded on August 8, 1961. I am 68. Some of you older folks, like me, will remember that they used to keep you in the hospital forever. If, as they claim, BHO II were born in a hospital in Mombassa on August 4, 1961, she would not have been discharged until the eighth. Add to that a very tiring train trip to Nairobi of 10 hours and at the barest minimum a 30 hour air trip to Honolulu, she could not have been in Honolulu on the 8th to register the birth. Considering that there was only one flight a week to London abd three flights a week to Bombay in 1961, the trip would have been a lot longer.

    THe Berg and Orly people are thinking with their emotions, which raises the question: What is driving them? The most logical answer is racism.

    Those people need to come back from the Land of Oz and need to take a logical, realistic and unemotional look at Obama and the mess he is trying to deal with.

    I have seen many blogs claiming that he is stupid. Get real!! He did not become editor of the Harvard University Law Journal by being stupid. I have seen claims that he is a Communist and a Muslim. That is idiotic. Those two groups despise each other with an intense passion.

    I fixed a typo on the birth recorded date (6 to 8).

    Berg was fixated on 9/11 conspiracy theories too. I won’t guess about motivations, but there is surely a great deal of knee-jerk and unexamined criticism of Obama. But that’s another story for another blog.

    No documents as of yet however did speak to my father & uncles (they all studied in Uk, Europe & the USA) some of whom married white woman none would return home till the 1970s. It was not just that most cultures didnt readily accept the wives there was also the fact that one would stand out as a swore thumb in the midst of all the black folks, & this was AFTER colonial rule.

    I will see if i cant get documents but you must remember this is black Africa we dont exactly keep record the way there kept in Europe but i’ll see what i can find
