Last one standing

“I am the last attorney standing with an ongoing court case to unseal Obama’s records and remove him from office for fraud”

That’s what Orly Taitz said in an email to Obama Conspiracy Theories, notifying us of a new WorldNetDaily article today about Orly Taitz and her lawsuit in DC federal court. (I find the use of the word “standing” particularly ironic.) Ever ready to give birtherism a boost, WND writer Bob Unruh, wrote a flattering account of the case and its sole plaintiff.

What is interesting about this article is this:

“Plaintiff is seeking a preliminary injunction … to obtain the vital records of the defendant prior to the February 26 deadline for document and response submission of the response by the plaintiff to the [California] bar,” she wrote. “Plaintiff is seeking a preliminary injunction within 20 days, as prescribed by LCvR 65.1 (d) to be scheduled by the court prior to March 1.”

While I was not able to verify that this is an actual filing with the court, it is the first reference I have seen that shows action has been taken by the California bar against Taitz. Will her troubles with the California Bar finally give her an individual stake in Obama’s eligibility? She seems to think so.

I do not see that Obama’s election had a direct causal connection with Taitz’s sanctions nor her other troubles. And in any case, her conduct was sanctionable, no matter where Obama was born.

    If Orly is indeed trouble with the California Bar, she may be attempting exercise her due process by demanding discovery which would defeat the allegations against her by the California Bar.

    John February 13, 2010 at 6:59 pm #

    If discovery were to prove Orly assertions, then allegations against by the California Bar could not be established. Perhaps such an allegation by the California Bar maintaining that Orly engaged in frivilous court action could be defended with discovery into Obama’s records.

    John is incorrect. Taitz’s misconduct has to do with her unethical behavior. It has nothing to do with where Obama was born. Even if she had a viable case (and she isn’t even close), that does not excuse her misconduct abusively filing motions for reconsideration and partnering with a disbarred lawyer to pursue her cases.

    Having read her injunction. Available here:
    http://www.scribd.com/doc/26822540/Taitz-v-ObamaPrelimInjunction

    All I can say is what a brilliant legal strategy it is to preempt the CA Bar by filing a court document that includes the following assertion:
    “28. Members of CA bar are predominantly Democrats and among largest donors and supporters to Obama campaign and Democratic National Campaign. Taitz has a legitimate concern that CA bar will be used as a tool for retaliation against her, particularly in light of recent wrongful disbarment and imprisonment of former Assistant US attorney, community activist and antitrust constitutional lawyer Richard Fine.”

    I can’t see them taking offence at that. She really is one of the dumbest people I’ve ever encountered.

    Yeah, good luck with that John. You must really get off on failure and being wrong.

    Discovery ain’t gonna happen. You really can’t be that stupid to take such a notion seriously.

    So what are you going to do when your beloved Orly is disbarred?

    Orly do not have an idea of what due process is! She filed law suits with all those crazy allegations then expected the court through discovery to prove that her allegations were factual and correct. The burden of proof was on Orly not the court.

    If indeed, the California Bar is investigating her, then that will be about her well documented inappropriate behavior before the court. She has to show cause why she should not be punished by the bar for her barratry. However, I guess that she will ignore why she should not be punished by insisting that the burden of proof about her allegations is upon the court.

    The dosage of her psychiatric medications needs to be adjusted to bring her down to the world of reality!

    All I can say is what a brilliant legal strategy it is to preempt the CA Bar by filing a court document that includes the following assertion:

    As brilliant as her other attempts at legal strategy. The same brilliant approach which landed her in Judge Land’s court to receive sanctions.

    Orly already knows that there is a greater likelihood for her to be punished by the California Bar. When that happens, then she can claim that she was a victim of a conspiracy against her thus…

    “28. Members of CA bar are predominantly Democrats and among largest donors and supporters to Obama campaign and Democratic National Campaign. Taitz has a legitimate concern that CA bar will be used as a tool for retaliation against her, particularly in light of recent wrongful disbarment and imprisonment of former Assistant US attorney, community activist and antitrust constitutional lawyer Richard Fine.”

    Let me reiterate, she needs some serious psychiatric help!

    Actually no. Because the complaints to the bar have very little to do with Obama and everything to do with her unprofessional behaviour in the courtroom, abuse of and attacks on judges, and gross ethical misconduct.

    If that was possibly true, all any lawyer (or even any plaintiff) who was frustrated by discovery would ever have to do it misbehave in court a bit and get themselves sanctioned. Then they could turn around and use any punishment as an excuse to get the discovery they weren’t otherwise entitled to.

    It doesn’t work that way. There is *no* excuse for misbehaving in court or for abusing the judicial system.

    What is sad is it seems Orly believes such nonsense and clearly will bring up all her whole diatribe in her hearing including the 39 social security numbers etc. Even if Obama wasn’t eligible, her filings were still frivolous, many making no legal arguments at all, and her conduct was, and continues to be, a disgrace to the legal profession.

    Even more funny was some of her other paragraphs….

    29.Taitz clearly became a dissident against Obama regime and her license, her livelihood, well being of her family and, judging by the case of Richard Fine, her very freedom is at stake.

    28. [Sic] Additionally she saw a group of convicted criminals, convicted document forgers, who appear to be working in concert, submitting perjured affidavits, forging her signature in order to derail her cases and endanger her license

    30. There is a clear concerted effort to destroy her legal actions, undermine her law license and destroy her as a human being.

    31. Such attacks were unrelenting, coming from each and every direction not by the hour, but by the minute. The attacks have risen to the level of hate crimes. Pro Obama „main stream media” has covered her by a barrage of insults, assaults and harassment.

    32. After she received a threat to kill her and burn her body for the whole world to see, there was a warning signal in her car. Test by a mechanic showed that the fumes emissions hose was disconnected and hot combustable fumes were going back to the engine which was a dangerous condition for her and her family riding in the car.

    I mean threats to kill and being a dissident? Is this the 1980’s in the old USSR?

    John, thanks for the link to the article…It was hilarious…I mean could the WND writer be more biased and less journalistic?

    “Taitz’ filing in Washington argues she’s facing a $20,000 penalty imposed by Judge Clay D. Land in the Rhodes case and possible action by the California Bar Association, to which Land forwarded his highly critical order.

    “Plaintiff is seeking a preliminary injunction … to obtain the vital records of the defendant prior to the February 26 deadline for document and response submission of the response by the plaintiff to the [California] bar,” she wrote. “Plaintiff is seeking a preliminary injunction within 20 days, as prescribed by LCvR 65.1 (d) to be scheduled by the court prior to March 1.”

    She said the U.S. Supreme Court has concluded, in a previous case, a sitting president “has no immunity from civil law litigation against him from acts done before office and not related to the office.”

    Taitz stated she has “a unique standing to bring this case as she suffered unique damages and she was … harmed by the actions of the defendant.”

    Her “Defend Our Freedoms Foundation” has been under repeated hacker attacks. She operates through a mailing address of 29839 Santa Margarita Parkway, Suite 100, Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif., 92688.

    “Obama has refused to unseal any of his original vital records,” she said. “No one was allowed to see his original birth certificate, college application records, financial aid forms or his medical records,” she argues. “The only record Obama presented was a short version Certification of Live Birth issued in 2007 which didn’t provide the name of the hospital, name of the doctor in attendance or signatures of any witnesses.

    “In light of the fact that the state of HI statute 338-17 allowed foreign born children of Hawaiian residents to get Hawaiian birth certificates and statute 338-5 allowed birth certificates to be obtained without any corroborating documents from any hospitals, there is no verifiable prima facia evidence of Obama’s birth in Hawaii,” she argues.

    “Plaintiff is seeking an order by this honorable court directing the defendant to release by February 26, 2010, his original birth certificate, which was allegedly obtained based on the defendant’s birth in Kapi’olani hospital in Hawaii [in 1961],” she seeks.

    She’s also asking for school and university records as well as passport records.

    “When one compares the weight of hardships on both parties, the hardship on the plaintiff greatly outweighs the hardship on the defendant,” she said.

    She argued that the U.S. attorney’s office should not handle Obama’s defense.

    “In case the U.S. attorney’s office is not recused and it is found that the defendant has committed federal criminal offenses, the same U.S. attorney’s office will be prosecuting him, which will deny him fair trail.”

    Orly will be disbarred when she unleashes that Russian/Israeli temper at the hearing.

    I don’t believe the Feb. 26 deadline is a hearing date; just a deadline to submit her written defense of the allegations to the Bar. But, given her track record, what an epic defense that will be! (A dumptruck might be involved.)

    I do hope she posts it on her infested site.

    Orly seems to be confusing civil and criminal actions again. She’s right that a civil lawsuit may move forward against a sitting president. However, if some crime were discovered of which Obama was accused, he could not be indicted or tried during his term of office (according to past AG opinions). Therefore, the current US attorney’s office would not be prosecuting. Only Congress has power to remove the President for crimes during his office.

    Taitz’s problem is that no action of Obama directly and causally links to her troubles. Obama didn’t hack her web site (nobody did as far as I can tell), and he didn’t sabotage her car (if that ever happened) and he didn’t force her to spend time trying to get him out of office, and he didn’t make her file frivolous lawsuits leading to sanctions.

    The funniest part is the article comes off almost more as an advertisement / donation piece for Jerome Corsi and WND’s paypal account and seems just to use their tabloid rag version of Orly’s crazy claims as window dressing.

    WND continues to demonstrate that they lack the most basic journalistic chops. Alien Elvis love child stories in the crappiest of tabloid rags are written better and even those stories don’t all come off like a hack 3-am infomercial on a UHF station for a crappy scam product.

    The Romans practiced this method of mass hysteria as the Jews and Christains were exterminated.

    The RCC and its Jesuit Miltia is had at work herein.

    The Way I can tell the difference between those who embrace the teachings of the Messiah and those who are barbarian savages is the simple teaching:

    Do Not Kill someone simply because he or she does not believe in what you beleive in.

    The Mythral RCC cult and its agent sword arm Islam believe there is no salvation outside of the worship of Baal from the beginning of the split from Orthodoxy. The radical Sunni Muslin Usurper is the Agent of the Worshipers of Baal! The Usurper is an agent of the Republican and Democrat Jesuit’s Rhodes Round-Table Fabian Society “Social Justice” inquisition of heretics to unfold soon if not stopped. What end game is afoot?

    Although Augustine is not a good example of a Christian whose writings are to be quoted; his writings were condemned because of predestination etc., He died in communion with the church at his death, but is not a Saint in the Orthodox (Original Christianity) Faith;

    Anyhow; Extra Ecclesiam nulla salus (no salvation outside the church)was PROCLAIMED EX-CATHEDRA by the popes infallibly throughout the Roman Church’s history and was used as a means to proclaim their supremacy and as a means to kill those who refused Rome’s supremacy, and as in St Thomas Aquinas’ writings he specifically speaks to the fact (of Romanism) that heretics must be exterminated’. These are all teachings that have come as a result from splitting away from the original understanding of Christianity. One would rather die for their faith than kill others to force them to believe it! Theodosius was punished by St Ambrose when he tried that in the 4th century, and did repent.

    The point I see is where did the Knights Templar come from? Why? Because of what? Then why did the crusaders come about, then why the inquisition, and now why the silent inquisition? Why the killing of the Serbs over 700,000 of them???? Because they were Catholics? No, because they were the original church.
