Orly blocks Supreme Court nomination

bordercrossing2

If Barack Obama isn’t really president, then he can’t nominate justices to the Supreme Court, or at least that’s the thinking of  California dentist-cum-attorney-cum-conspiracy theorist Orly Taitz, DDS. She has on her web site the first page of an application to stay the process of replacing Justice Souter.

I guess this shouldn’t be a surprise, but I admit that I think of Orly as being so irrelevant to what’s really going on, that to associate her with a real national event is a clash. It looks like Orly has added  a cover page to one of her old cases (note the removed staple) and recycled the “evidence” (ranting unsubstantiated claims) in support of a stay. The application was sent to Judge Souter, himself.

You couldn’t make this stuff up.

    Orly could not argue her way out of a traffic ticket, much less argue a case to the Supreme Court.

    And Liddy is now saying Obama is not a NBC. From the mouth of a convicted felon.

    Andy Martin, authority non pareil: “vexatious litigant”;”now asserts Obama’s real father is not Barack Obama Sr., but Frank Marshall Davis”;”he called the judge “a crooked, slimy Jew who has a history of lying and thieving common to members of his race”;”Martin stated, “I am able to understand how the Holocaust took place, and with every passing day feel less and less sorry that it did.”

    This is Taitz’s new BFF. And after what she went through in the Soviet Union. Guess she didn’t have enough.

    Truly the rattles of the clinically insane.

    What is hilarious is that she forgot to include Congress, who is the only one who can decide not to proceed with the hearings. After all, President Obama has already nominated Sotomayor.

    Orly seems to be getting further and further out of touch with reality.

    One of her commentors in response to the above:

    “…Every day I pray Souter will do what is RIGHT and FAIR and JUST and deliver you to the floor of the Supreme Court where you will make HISTORY.”

    So do I. Best comedy ever.

    An email received this morning claims Orly has received death threats. She also says her husband’s car has had a fuse to disappear, and her own car has a gas leak.

    However bad her behavior, this is not the right thing to do (threats). While I sincerely doubt that her auto maintenance issues are related to her political activity, I don’t condone pranks either.

    Supposedly from Orly:

    A couple of days ago my husband’s car just suddenly went dead, he took it to the shop and they found that a fuse was missing. What was strange, is that they couldn’t find that fuse anywhere on the floor of the car. At the same time a warning light went on in my car. I was busy, I had to go to Tulsa OK. When I came back, I took the car to the mechanic. He called me today and said that there is a gasoline leak. It is dangerous, the car could’ve ignited.
    See in the attachment- a couple of e-mails from some sick people. One is talking about burning my body for the world to see.
    Look at the attachment about Catherine Smith- she died in a fiery crush under suspicious circumstances. My local FBI is doing nothing. I don’t know what to do

    TO: obamaconsiracy.org

    I find it interesting that you choose to hide your identity from the public. You also take the oh so stereotypical Commiecrat path of demonizing and trashing those you disagree with.

    As far as the illegal Kenyan Muslim mulatto usurper currently squatting in OUR White House, I’d like to hear YOUR explanation of the following on his Hawaiin “COLB”…
    His “father” (sperm donor who abandoned him at the age of 2) is listed under “Race” as “African”. Here’s a little newsflash for you, Commiecrats.

    African is a NATIONALITY, NOT a race. Negro or Black would be the correct description. If “African” was a “race”, then how are WHITE South Africans categorized, hmmm?

    Additionally, if the Hawaiin COLB is “legitimate”, then how was it created by a computer using Helvitica Fonts? Any document created in 1961 would have most likely been done using a manual typewriter with Courier Fonts, the ONLY one in use at that time!

    And oh yes, a LEGITIMATE birth certificate ALWAYS names the Hospital and delievery doctor, NONE of which appear on the phony Hawaiin COLB.

    Also, would you care to explain why the illegal Kenyan Muslim has spent up to a MILLION $ to keep ALL of his Occidental College records, LEGITIMATE Birth Certificate, and other school records sealed?

    For a measely TWELVE ($12.00) DOLLARS, the illegal Kenyan Muslim mulatto could put ALL of this “controversy” to rest, yet he chooses to spend HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS on lawyers to keep it hidden.

    And here’s a question for those of you who hide behind your website:
    Are you now, or have you ever been a member of the Communist Party?

    I think those of us who pay close attention know the answer to that question.

    Google: “The 45 Stated Communist Goals for the Takeover of America” entered into the US Congressional Record in 1963, just months after they killed JFK…and make no mistake about it, Communists killed Kennedy. Of course, not foreign Commies, by American ones. Read the 45 items. Then ask yourselves which U.S. political party’s agenda it is.

    GOOGLE: “The Sworn Affidavit of Bishop Ron McRae” and read it in it’s entirety. Especially take note of the part that states that Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s “church” allows MUSLIMS to be members WITHOUT forfeiting their Muslim faith or beliefs.

    I keep my identity to myself so that my political activity will not spill over in a negative way onto my family and work.

    Your objection about fonts and the word “African” come from two misunderstandings, first about what the COLB is. I have articles on both these topics on this web site:

    http://www.obamaconspiracy.org/2009/04/the-african-race/
    http://www.obamaconspiracy.org/2008/12/not_born_in_hawaii/

    http://www.obamaconspiracy.org/2009/03/birth-certificates-101-part-1/

    And no, I’ve never been a Communist. I’ve never even MET a Communist (that I know of). What a silly idea.

    “African is a NATIONALITY, NOT a race. Negro or Black would be the correct description. If “African” was a “race”, then how are WHITE South Africans categorized, hmmm?”

    Whenever i visit the USA i ensure that people understand that i’m an African (Nigerian), & not an African-American. I dont mind being to as “black”, but not AA. Also, in forms one has to fill, its what you refer to yourself as that is stated on the form

    “I think those of us who pay close attention know the answer to that question.”, this is a lie !!!, Anyone who has been following this issue knows that the COLB has a june 2007 date + stamp reflecting that it was obtained in 2007. Obama or the DNC requested for the BC in 2007 & received a COLB because this is what hawaii issues now, this is something that Birthers dispute but its a reflection on the date on the COLB

    I respect your right to challenge Obama credentials & anyone else for that matter but your challenge should be based on true facts & fair

    The farther afield they go with their craziness, the sooner they dissolve. After the government comment site spam incident, they have managed to become noticed in the wider media as nuisances, not citizens with legitimate concerns.

    Keep it up mrunpc. Post your thoughts far and wide. Show America what kind of people birthers are. A normal adult would not be able to read your entire screed. It’s the rantings of an unhinged individual.

    “GOOGLE: “The Sworn Affidavit of Bishop Ron McRae” and read it in it’s entirety.”

    What prompted McRae to interview Obama’s grandmother?

    Why isn’t McRae’s Kenyan interpreter’s real named used?

    Does it strike you as odd that the birther movement insists on Obama’s transparency while relying on the testimony of informants who hide behind aliases?

    I’ve known two missionaries working with Muslim populations; both would have been thrilled to have Muslims attending their churches. Perhaps Rev Wright would share his secret with them.

    The more he accomplishes, and as the rest of the world advances with an Obama Administration, the less relevant and more marginalized birthers are becoming. Their tantrum on the govt website labeled them in the media as a nuisance. Jake Tapper called their birther “facts”, insane rumors. If Orly’s motion to stop Sotomayor’s confirmation gets wider coverage, she will be a laughing stock. I hope they keep it up.

    If you read this affidavit you can’t prevent yourself from laughing. It is actually high comedy. There are so many statements that have been disproven that I can’t understand how someone would even reference it as an actual factual document. I can’t figure what is worse; this affidavit or Larry Sinclair’s fiction. Pure unadulterated comedy.

    For giggles, I did Google the “45 Stated…”. Let me list the obvious issues with it:
    a) no way to verify its true
    b) the list is apparently created by a anti-communist activist- with no citations- we have no idea where she came up with this stuff
    c) the fact that it was read into the congressional records is meaningless- it neither verifies that its true or false.
    d) the list itself is well to put it charitable- all over the place.
    d) Which parties agenda is it- since you just copied and pasted your post from one of the dozen other site with the same wording- do you really have any idea?
    e) For instance- one of the stated ‘goals’ was opening relations with China- which was initiated with that well known Democrat, Richard Nixon.
    f) I bet the whole list comes from the paranoia of the anti-communist groups of the era. I would suggest it was made up now, but some of the stuff so dated- and so doesn’t support what they think it supports- that I can’t imagine someone actually writing it now.
    g) The only thing surprising about the list was it failed to mention electing a black muslim president.
    h) Oh yeah- that communist take over of the world is going so well isn’t it? Look at a world map of Communist governments in 1963 and look at one now….pure silliness.

    She wants Passport, border crossing records from when Obama traveled there with Richard Lugar in 2005. They were detained in Perm for several hours while officials decided to search their plane. Orly thinks it was because there was an “issue” with Obama’s passport. ( a sign of delusion is thinking everything is about you)

    No such case on any federal court docket.

    Do you think maybe Orly got hit in the head after she wrote her bar exam, and that explains her lack of knowledge of legal procedure?

    I’ve spent waaaaay to much time being entertained by all of this craziness, but I’d never heard about that before. Even if Obama was born in Kenya, and subsequently became an Indonesian citizen, does she really think that he would have traveled as a US Senator on an official trip with a non-US passport? Yeah I know, nothing is too crazy ….

    No, the Taft Law School is an unaccredited correspondence outfit. They teach enough to pass the California bar, but there is no practical experience.

    She is waaay over her head. She should stick to wills and cavaties. I don’t know if she is even a good dentist. I read there are some malpractice suits against her for dentistry.

    Jurisdiction over what? A writ of mandate to block a Supreme Court nomination?

    I don’t think any court has jurisdiction -that is, I think its beyond the jurisdiction of the judicial branch to block the executive branch from exercising the powers clearly delineated to it by the Constitution.

    That is, it’s the President’s job to name candidates for the Supreme Court, and the Senate’s job to confirm the appointees (or not).

    So how could any court possibly have the power to enjoin the President from doing his job? (That’s the exact opposite of what a writ of mandamus is for).

  38. avatar
    Dr. Conspiracy June 5, 2009 at 9:15 pm #

    Uhhh, I don’t think ANY court is going to claim it has the jurisdiction to enjoin Congress from carrying out it’s constitutionally mandated duties.

    Judge Robertson pointed out when dismissing Hollister v. Soetoro that this was just Berg v. Obama rehashed. Berg doesn’t have standing to litigate the president’s eligibility, even by putting his case in a new envelope. (The phrase, “lipstick on a pig” comes to mind.) Orly is bringing Lightfoot v. Bowen again, with a new cover page stapled on. After the president is inaugurated, his eligibility is simply not justiciable.

    They refuse to accept Pres Obama is legally the President and the only way to remove him is by impeachment, by finding a candidate to run against him in 2012 who can get more votes, or when he becomes ineligible by term limits in 2016. They think if a court declares Obama ineligible, it will negate the election, his inauguration and any legislation he has signed, appointment he has made. I think they think they’re going to get either a do-over, or McCain will become President. They think he’s not legally the current President. This is why I say they are useful fools for the neocons and hard right-wing powers that be who want to undermine Obama at every turn and diminish his accomplishment.

    Over at Orly’s site today she’s feeding the frenzy that DHS exercises in late July are related to rounding everyone up and locking them in FEMA camps. They sure are afraid of the FEMA camps. It reminds me of what the righties used to say when defending Bush’s wiretapping program: if you’re not doing something wrong, what are you worried about? Oh the irony.
