Rhodes v Gates

Rhodes v Gates

Rhodes v Gates

Will another military career be wrecked?

From Orly’s bag of military lawsuits: filed August 28, Dr. Connie Rhodes, a US Army medical officer has been activated with orders for Iraq. Oh, but she can’t go until she finds out if Obama is really her commander in chief.

While the filing for a temporary restraining order below shows the United States District Court for the Middle District of Georgia, it was actually filed in the Texas Western District.

Rather than leave you in suspense, the motion has already been denied. That’s a record for speed. While the motion could have been stricken on technical grounds (e.g., Orly forgot to sign it!), Judge Rodriguez wrote:Β  “Given the time-sensitive nature under which temporary restraining orders are sought, this Court will continue its evaluation of the application in the event that Plaintiff complies with the requirements of the federal courts [to sign the motion]”. In that evaluation the court left no doubt about what it thought of the “merits” of the application for a restraining order (all 80-something pages of it).

“Plaintiff has no substantial likelihood of success on the merits. Plaintiff submits nothing but conjecture and subjective belief to substantiate the basis for her claims, citing, for example, ‘opinion’ and ‘doubt’…. Given that the underlying bases for Plaintiff’s claim cannot succeed on the merits, there is no irreparable injury that Plaintiff can suffer. A review of Plaintiff’s verified complaint shows that it presents speculation and vague claims that fail to rise to the requirement that it present ‘specific facts’ …”

    Doc, Who knew? I mean we knew it would be denied. But, I thought it wouldn’t be recorded until Monday due to weekend. Whew!

    BTW, did you see the other document where Orly says she was granted pro hac vice for 3 states: TX, GA, PA. Huh?

    Also, the TRO request was riddled with errors. More than those pointed out by the Court. Orly didn’t even change the caption from the one she did for Cook. It still says United States District Court for the Middle District of Georgia.

    Orly’s back!

    I suppose its not that surprising that Taitz is finding a handful of right wingnuts in the military that share her views.

    I would think that a doctor would be smart enough to not throw away her career, but if she thinks the Army will let her out because of this – she’s crazy.

    Instead she will get poor OERs and will not be promoted as fast as she otherwise would have and will likely draw some pretty bad duty stations if she doesn’t end up doing something stupid that earns her a court-martial, a federal conviction and time in Leavenworth.

    Is Orly a great “client’s attorney” or what?

    Most troubling to me is that Dr Rhodes hedges on his/her gender in the plaintiff verification – one moment it’s ‘she’ then it’s ‘he’.

    If you aren’t sure whether you are an automatic or stick-shift, are you really qualified to be checking under someone else’s hood?

    Quote of the day:


    Plaintiff submits that judicial resolution of festering sores such as occur when people feel they cannot trust their leaders to follow the law, to live by the law, and to respect the concerns of all the people, especially when it will cost their leaders almost nothing to restore or bolster confidence, is a major public policy reason why this Temporary Restraining Order should be granted.

    Funny how once a judge rules against the birfers, the judge is an “Obot.”

    Judge Rodriguez was appointed by George W. Bush. Prior to being a federal judge, he had been appointed to the Texas Supreme Court by Governor Rick “Secession” Perry.

    Judge Rodriguez ruled on exactly what was in front of him. And Judge Carter will eventually dismiss the case in front of him.

    These Obama eligibility have been handled uniformly by all the judges who have handled them, according to the law and the rules that govern the federal courts.

    Judge Carter will do the same all these other judges have done, he will make sure Orly does not fail on a technicality and will then throw out the case because of lack of standing.

    If you, like Orly believe that Carter has promised that he will grant Orly discovery then you are sadly wrong.

    Rather than leave you in suspense, the case has already been denied.

    The court denied the TRO request; the case itself is still active. (OCT’s docket sheet is in error when it lists this case as dismissed.)

    Now, a TRO denial is the judge telegraphing that you don’t have a good case. But it isn’t necessarily fatal.

    It’ll be interesting to see if Rhodes continues to press this suit. If so, it’ll be interesting to see how the government responds. (Both in this case, and against Rhodes.)

    But given the track record of others from other military conflicts who objected to their orders, it is a fantasy to think this case will lead to the fabled discovery process.

    The Soldiers and Sailors Civil Relief Act prevents the case from moving forward if Capt. Barnett is deployed. Thus, the urgency of the TRO.

    There could be a strategy being played. Capt. Barnett is moved to the lead plaintiff. Capt. Barnett’s TRO is denied due to incomplete paperwork. Then Capt. Barnett will have to be removed from case for the case to progress. Once Capt. Barnett returns stateside, then her case can begin.

    Meanwhile, Keyes v Obama moves on without Capt. Barnett.

    On May 15th of this year 501 brigade out of Fort Campbell, KY, currently stationed in Iraq, has requested a support of medical personal in Iraq. Two days ago, August the 23rd, an order was given through the chain of command via e-mail for Captain Rhodes to arrive in San Antonio TX, Fort Sam Houston for Tactical Combat Medical Care Course (TCMC) to be held from August 30th till September 4th and next day, on September the 5th to arrive in Fort Benning in Columbus GA for immediate deployment to Iraq for a period of one year and twelve days from September 5th, 2009 until September 17th 2010.

    There are military courts. If she truly does not believe in the legitimacy of her orders, then she need only disobey them and wait for the court-martial.

    Actually, I assumed Taitz learned from her debacle and Florida, and filed a complaint along with the TRO. But I see she didn’t.

    The Soldiers and Sailors Civil Relief Act prevents the case from moving forward if Capt. Barnett is deployed.

    I doubt that the material presence of Rhodes is relevant to the pending case.

    50 U.S.C. App. § 521)

    At any stage thereof any action or proceeding in any court in which a person in military service is involved, either as plaintiff or defendant, during the period of such service or within sixty days thereafter may, in the discretion of the court in which it is pending, on its own motion, and shall, on application to it by such person or some person on his behalf, be stayed as provided in this Act unless, in the opinion of the court, the ability of plaintiff to prosecute the action or the defendant to conduct his defense is not materially affected by reason of his military service.

    It’s also quite likely that the case in question will be dismissed soon anyway.

    Not necessarily. A stay of a civil proceeding is not automatic. The service member has to apply for the stay, and the court does not have to grant the stay if it is determined that the plaintiff’s miltary obligations do not materially affect her ability to prosecute the action.

    Section 201

    (50 U.S.C. App. § 521)

    At any stage thereof any action or proceeding in any court in which a person in military service is involved, either as plaintiff or defendant, during the period of such service or within sixty days thereafter may, in the discretion of the court in which it is pending, on its own motion, and shall, on application to it by such person or some person on his behalf, be stayed as provided in this Act unless, in the opinion of the court, the ability of plaintiff to prosecute the action or the defendant to conduct his defense is not materially affected by reason of his military service.

    On the face of it, I don’t see anything in this action which would require Captain Rhodes’ physical presence.

    Besides, if the action were to be stayed until she deployed to Iraq and then returned, the entire matter would be moot.

    Small quibble with description of the order.

    The motion was not stricken (or denied) due to Orly’s failure to sign the pleading. The motion was denied on the “merits.”

    It is true that the Court noted that because the TRO was unsigned, he would have to strike the pleading unless, after being informed, Taitz failed to correct the matter. HOWEVER, he continues to address the merits before concluding that the motion for TRO is DENIED.

    The fact that the TRO was DENIED (rather than being stricken) makes it clear that the Judge denied the motion on its merits, and not for the technicality he noted in the beginning of his opinion.

    Small detail? Yes. However, details matter πŸ™‚

    It is interesting to see some of the people jumping off the so called Orly train wreck…An open letter from the so called “David Crockett” below had some good stuff….I guess they finally figured out that Orly is not even writing her stuff and is involved with a convicted felon….It is some good stuff…A quote from the letter…

    “For that reason I and many others are deeply saddened about a number of inconsistencies in respect to both the legal approach as to alliances the latter for example in respect to Charles Lincoln who has a proven criminal track record”

    http://www.oilforimmigration.org/facts/?p=3145

    Also read the comments from some posters…

    From commenter Mike Poirier

    “She is good at getting money out of people. While most in the movement are dieing for financial help she is wallowing in huge donations and sucking down all the money. she then does everything wrong and loses all cases and crys she is a victim.”

    In reading the comments over at “oil from immigration” (for my morning daily dose of humor) the folloing comment I found hilarous…

    Longknife 21 // Aug 30, 2009 at 6:43 pm
    Off topic, but good news,
    Rasmussen has Obama’s Strongly Disapprove rating at 42%, this is a new high for Strongly Disapprove.
    His Strongly Approve was 32% for a rating of -10. This may sound high but his core supporters of far-left/libs, politicized Blacks, and welfare clients give him a guaranteed Strongly Approval of about 28% as long as the welfare checks get mailed. So his approval numbers among normal’ people are really in the tank.
    47% somewhat approve, with 52% disapprove.
    On a question to keep or remove all of Congress, 57% said throw them all out and start over ( How ’bout that, Morgan!). Only 25% said keep them.

    http://www.oilforimmigration.org/facts/?p=3145

    So only “politicized Blacks and welfare check recipients are supporters of the President….That Rasmussen poll is a wonderful thing…If I recall they had McCain winning some states during the election that President Obama eventually won, so I am not sure how accurate it really is…

    Another funny comment is the following…

    NewEnglandPatriot // Aug 30, 2009 at 5:04 pm
    I don’t like tearing anyone apart, particularly not publicly. I think there is merit to all the comments above. However, if someone knows Orly personally and has the means to contact her privately and share these concerns, I think that would be better.

    Despite the fact that many seem to think she’s a loose cannon or goes off on tangents that seem to lead nowhere, she is still the only attorney who has a case before a judge who is actually taking action. While Mario Apuzzo’s case has gone beyond the first level, Orly has a September 8 hearing with Judge Carter, who obviously agreed, over the objections of the original judge, that the Kenyan BC document needed to at least be discussed.

    I agree that Orly should not be speaking for herself at all times. When she did that interview with MSNBC after having just flown from CA to London to Israel, she was exhausted and in no shape to appear on TV, particularly with the Obama shills at MSNBC. Rather than do the interview, she probably should have opted to schedule it for another time when she could have been a littel more composed.

    I heard a subsequent radio interview done with Michael Savage that was professional, contained appropriate detail, and explained the barriers to Obama being eligible. She was composed, coherent, and obviously at her best.

    I think each eligibility lawyer has a different personality. We probably have all wondered about all of them from time to time. Certainly, no one should be using anyone with a history of felony. If that is the case, it should be stopped immediately. But this is advice that people who know her should relay to her directly, in my humble opinion.

    Someone blogged at BTR last night that Gibbs and Hillary have been issued subpoenaes to appear on September 8th. I don’t know if that’s true, as I haven’t seen it confirmed anywhere. It might have been wishful thinking on that person’s part. I do know that Orly stated that if expedited discovery were allowed, she planned to issue requests for information of Hillary Clinton and Robert Gates to determine what information they have on file as to Obama’s legitimacy, e.g., birth certificate, passport, selective service registration.

    Somehow, she has still gotten a case farther than anyone else.

    Wow…Supporters of Orly and the so called movement really have set the bar pretty low. I especially like how the make up stuff, like the following comment “Orly has a September 8 hearing with Judge Carter, who obviously agreed, over the objections of the original judge, that the Kenyan BC document needed to at least be discussed.” Really, I don’t recall Judge Carter saying that. But I guess the poster was reading Orly’s version of events…Funny stuff…

    Wow, well said, Mr. Crockett.

    FM 5-0 is a good place to start regarding structure and planning.

    My two cents is that we begin with becoming educated as to why Mr. Obama is ineligible for office at this very moment, vis a vis his DUAL CITIZENSHIP at birth.

    Y’know it shouldn’t be very difficult for some old vets like yourself to brief the group as to the THREAT and the various courses of action to counter such. Upon wargaming the COAs, a consensus can be decided and the OPORD written.

    David Crockett // Aug 31, 2009 at 2:18 am
    Mr. Nothworthy,

    “I couldn’t agree with you more, FM.5-0 is the right place to start.

    I suggest we thoroughly study it in an effort to arrive at a blueprint for the most effective way in which to structure the movement. I included in the Betrayal Blog’s Research Community for which I will forward an invitation.”

    Interesting comment from that same article regarding Orly…

    “…You want to see a laughing stock? Wait till the new lawsuit Orly is fixing to present, wherin she is going to try and sue the US Government asking for an injunction challenging the US Constitution! That sounds just like something this Charles Lincoln, II would talk her into. Talk about utter nonsense?That has been his MO with all of the courts he has been in. When they rule against him, he sued the Judge, and you wonder why the Courts have no respect for this convicted felon?
    I can assure you if this happens as I have been informed is soon coming, Orly will become the laughing stock of the Nation. That doesn’t help us or our cause. It will destroy the movement, what is left of it by then.”

    I hope that is true, that she is trying to actually sue the US Government. Whatever credibility she may have had would go straight out of the window…

    “I heard a subsequent radio interview done with Michael Savage that was professional”

    Wow- I have never heard any interview with Michael Savage that was professional. It must have been a good old hate fest there- I bet they were patting each other on the backs and agreeing that Obama is clearly a communist and America hater.

    I actually read that mess. Some of my favorite quotes:
    “being compelled to wage war under an illegal dictator compared by many and actually comparable to Adolph Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Mao Tse-Tung, Idi Amin, and Francois and Jean-Claude Duvalier, especially when this leader has repeatedly expressed his admiration for Fidel Castro”

    Personally, I would wait until someone has ordered the execution of at least 1000 people before comparing them to Stalin or Hitler, but I guess I am just too conservative.

    “this Secretary and Department of Defense appointed by a “Darwinian Man” would constitute involuntary servitude or judicially sanctioned rape of her individual autonomy.”

    Holy Smears Batman! What judge could fail to agree with that logic.

    “This original application was denied on the same day as it was filed, on the grounds that Plaintiff’s objections to the Constitutionality of the current Presidential Administration, Chain of Command, and Department of Defense were speculative and based on opinion, belief, and conjecture”

    Another one of those corrupt judges.

    I particularly love this portion:

    Plaintiff asks this court to declare and adjudge that all commissioned officers on active duty are and ought to be excused from any further compliance with any orders issued by this administration, except those necessary to defend this nation against invasion and repel any actual attack by foreigner armed forces attacking or invading the territory of the United States,

    So….who would be in charge of the military exactly?

    “until such time as the Executive Orders of January 21, 2009, have been repealed, rescinded, and voided, and all information thereby concealed has been revealed to the officers of the United States Armed Forces and a determination made by those officers regarding the legitimacy of the current Presidential Administration.”

    Al the Military would be in charge- she is asking the Courts to authorize military officers to a coupe!

    “All that is asked of the President is that he humbly acknowledge…that he then confirm and acknowledge that he cannot be President because one of his parents…”

    I like that statement- “all that is being asked is the President acknowledge he can’t be President”

    All I have time for- this stuff is great!

    Chatter from the usual suspects is that what was posted was Lincoln’s final draft.

    Whether Lincoln/Taitz (or Rhodes) held off from filing, or the court bounced it….

    One notes that the filing in Texas had “Georgia” as the court. Perhaps this is the genesis of a rumor.

    STepper,
    Thank you for your comment. Orly’s petition was filed today. I haven’t personally viewed the final draft, but am hoping Orly made many changes from the one I recieved. Hopefully that is why it wasn’t filed yesterday as it was suppose to have had, especially when it states she is going to Afghanistan when her orders say Iraq!”

    He was more cautious earlier so perhaps it is genuine.

    Technically a rumour – but recently a very strong one. There was an earlier ‘complaint’ circulated on the internet but I doubted on the internet but recent reports seem to be more plausible. Unfortunately none of us will know for certain until any action is taken .

    Yes, and it has the following errors. But first note how the presiding Judge is Judge Land who also ruled on Cook v Good…

    1. Orly forgot to sign
    2. Still referring to Afghanistan not Iraq
    3. Failure to apply for Pro Hac Vice status
    4. Failure to ask for a hearing on the motion for TRO

    It’s almost as if they do not want to win… I wonder how Connie Rhodes feels about that…

    Ok, legal eagles. Isn’t it at the least really bad form for an attorney to file for her client in federal court in Texas, get denied, then move over to federal court in Georgia, while her client is also a plaintiff in a case in a federal court in Cali? I mean, it’s all one big federal court system, no? Isn’t this “judge shopping?”

    Rickey September 4, 2009 at 2:50 pm #

    NBC,

    Yes, I found at least four instances in which Orly refers to Capt. Rhodes going to Iraq (paras. 50, 57, 127, 147); elsewhere she says Afghanistan.

    She also demands release of Obama’s records with the Social Security “Commission” (para. 142).

    At least she deleted the references to “Darwinian Man.”

    Orly also failed to sign the Motion for a TRO, and her exhibits were not properly attached. She brings new meaning to the term “on the job training.”

    Orly’s off to Georgia:

    “Tomorrow at 2pm hearing for Captain Connie Rhodes MD in GA
    I just got word from Ms. Sweeden, clerk for District Court Judge for the Middle District of GA. We were granted an emergency hearing for Captain Connie Rhodes, MD, flight surgeon, who is scheduled to be shipped to Iraq day after tomorrow on September the 12th. Capt Rhodes states that she is willing to go to Iraq, as long as she knows that the orders going down the chain of command are lawful orders. We asked this case to be certified as a class action case, as she represents a whole class of plaintiffs situated in similar position. The hearing will be tomorrow at 2pm in Columbus GA, Federal Building 1201 12th street. Judge Clay D. Land courtroom. Judge Land was gracious and a real Southern gentleman in that he waived the technical requirement of a signature of the local counsel as a contact”

    Judge Land was gracious and a real Southern gentleman in that he waived the technical requirement of a signature of the local counsel as a contact.

    This part still cracks me up.

    I’m guessing the judge didn’t actually “waive” anything. And this is the same “Southern gentleman” that told Major Cook to get lost.

    Speaking of Major Cook: How’s that quest to get his old job back going? (Funny how the birfer crowd has totally forgotten about him.)

    Cpt Rhodes has a history of conduct that is unbecoming. She forged another doctors signature on her own medical profile in April to avoid a PT test. She helped create a fake military document in August to facilitate her adultrous affairm using official military letterhead with the Dept of Defense emblem on it. She abandoned her family over a year ago after having sent them to KS a few months ahead of her military move so they could begin school. She ultimately moved to KS, but with the man she is having an affair with. A year later, her family still receives no support, still has received none of their personal items(not even the kid’s toys). Yet, she is still receiving extra compensation from the Army for having two dependents. Her efforts here are simply to not get deployed. It has nothing to do with Obama. She would likely be pregnant by now to avoid deployment, but as previously said, she left her husband(is still married though)….and if she were to get pregnant by someone other than her husband (the man she is having an affair with) that would not look good for….especially considering the Army issued a no contact order to her regarding the man she is having an affair with. Its difficult to get pregnant, if you really are following a no contact order. Dont buy into those who are trying to raise her up as some courageous person. She simply wants to avoid deployment. Nothing else.
