Road trip!

The fresh, floral air energizes you. The warm, tranquil waters refresh you. The breathtaking, natural beauty renews you. Look around. There’s no place on earth like Hawaii.

HawaiiBeachOur intrepid “band of birthers,” Orly (“Let me feenish”) Taitz, Paul (“I know typewriters”) Irey, and Douglas (“Scanners? What a deal have I got for you!”) Vogt, is heading to Hawaii in just over a week with a laptop and a portable scanner to view and copy Barack Obama’s long-form birth certificate, reports WorldNetDaily. The Taitz subpoena from the Taitz v Astrue lawsuit, specifies August 8, the 50th anniversary of the registration of Obama’s birth by the Hawaii Health Bureau, for the viewing.

I’m afraid it’s going to be Kona weather1 for our travelers2. The State of Hawaii has already said in a response to an earlier Taitz subpoena that Hawaiian law prohibits them from complying, even if the subpoena were valid.

Surprisingly, Taitz is not optimistic about the trip, and according to her, did not intend to publicize it (Vogt and Irey spilled the beans to WND’s Jerome Corsi). Tatiz wrote about her prospects:

I personally did not arrange any press conference, as I expect last minute stone walling. It is my understanding that a New York Times reporter made plans to be there, but I have nothing to do with this preparation. Right now I am swamped over my head with a million things. My father is having a minor surgery and I do not expect to be in HI till the last moment. I am still having to spend enormous amount of time on this bogus law suit filed by Philip Berg, his local counsel Gary Kreep and his sidekicks Lisa Liberi and Lisa Ostella. This is an enourmous [sic] waste of my time, money and energy, which could have been used for something much more important, but the courts want me mirred [sic] in this for over two years now. I am sorry, I missed the interview on KOCE 1000. I did not sleep last night, had a terrible migraine and missed the call. I will record the interview and they will play it later or I will do it live in a couple of weeks.

If Orly can’t see the certificate, she has (undisclosed) plans “B” and “C.” Orly is much less sanguine about her chances than when on the 25th she described herself as, “on pins and needles.”


1Kona weather is a weather pattern in Hawaii when the trade winds stop blowing, a time associated with ill portents, bad feeling, and irritability. I use this solely as a metaphor for the travelers’ mood in response to inevitable failure seeing the birth certificate. In actuality, the Honolulu forecast for August 8 is winds 15 mph

NE.

2One Taitz commenter, Florence Stone, says that the Hawaii Deputy AG in charge of responding to the subpoena is on leave and that Health Director Fuddy had “left the island.” That was a couple of weeks ago.

    I like how they are all Taitz, and Vogt and Irey in Corsi’s article, providing lowered expectations…already planting the seeds of their cover story.

    J.Potter: planting the seeds of their cover story.

    That would be my first assumption. Corsi must have real attorneys working for him who would let him know the subpoena is worthless. So this might be an attempt to get the DOH to respond before the 8th, to avoid the news conference and publicity.

    Taitz doesn’t shy away from the camera, and this road trip is doomed to fail. I will bring the popcorn.

    I’m still confused about the “Subonena.” Did a judge sign it? If not, what makes it a subpoena? Can she subpoena a birth certificate in Hawaii in a case about whether or not the Social Security Administration should release certain documents under the FOIA? But most of all, is it really a subpoena???

    Yes, apparently people were told that Loretta Fuddy has “left the island”. P&E under public record law has asked for Fuddy’s work calendar to verify if this so. P&E doesn’t trust Hawaii for a second; http://www.thepostemail.com/2011/07/23/did-the-hawaii-health-department-director-really-leave-the-island/

    Because it is so unusual for people to take vacation in the summertime.

    Where do you suppose that Hawaiians go on their vacations? To Hawaii?

    When the greys forcefully transmit their telepathic instructions to their pawns, it can cause excruciating pain when received by lower life forms. The message are often interpreted as visions. The neural overload can result in periods of dreamlike semi-consciousness, and cause memory-loss.

    Don’t believe me? Look into the history of “migraine” sufferers.

    If only those cruel aliens would just turn down the volume.

    Doc C. – Question

    If you know, what is the size of a 1961 BC. The one that is kept in the vault. I’ve been assuming that it is 8 1/2 x 11. Or is it smaller (6 x 8)?

    If it is 8 1/2 x 11, that would mean that when they copied it onto the green security paper, the had to reduce it.

    I really don’t have a good answer for you. As best I can tell from the White House PDF (assuming that it is a scan of an 8.5 x 11 document), the typing on the certificate appears at about 14 characters per inch. Typewriters typically produced 10 cpi or 12 cpi. That would suggest that the original certificate is reduced on the certificate.

    I have seen older older original certificates over the years that were much smaller than 8.5 x 11 but none from Hawaii.

    I suppose some study of lots of samples might give a better answer than mine, but for a good answer one would have to contact the Department of Health.

    This image of Mrs. Nordyke holding her daughter’s BCs, makes me think that the original vault copy is larger then what is issued to to the parents.

    The image area in the PDF is just over 6” x 5” and the typed characters are 9pt high. The checkboxes are ≈ .1″ on a side.

    That’s pretty small.

    That implies that the original is reduced while making the copy. Just another level distortion added to the mix.

    It was signed en blanc by the clerk of court in DC. I would presume that some objection will be raised prior to August 8, and the subpoena will be quashed (or something to the same effect).

    What escapes me is why she would be given the blank forms when there is no pre-trial discovery in a FOIA case.

    I think Orly “pre-quashed” this subpoena, saving HI the trouble of having to go to court. It is fraught with procedural errors including, of course, improper service (which I don’t think Orly has ever done properly). It is not a valid subpoena.

    J. Potter July 29, 2011 at 9:18 pm #

    Yeah, but her fans believe it is, and will believe the state is stonewalling, as they expect an entity in on it to do. Ah, the frustrating joys of self-reinforcement!

    No need to quash it, Doc. The subpoena was never served on Ms. Fuddy.

    Orly, in one of her comments on her site, says she is in contact with lawyers in HI. Are there really birther lawyers in HI or is she finally coming to her senses and getting someone involved who understands the law? I have my doubts that they will give her the answer she so desperately wants.

    She says she has been in contact with them, not that they have agreed to represent of even see her.

    “Hello this is Orly Taitz, I need to make appointment for see Mr’ Bloggins to have him pursue legal matter involving usurper of Presidency.”

    “Yes Mrs Taitz, Mr Bloggins is familiar with your case but regrets that he, and his entire firm, are completely booked for the next 200 years for any cases involving nutba….. er I mean usurpation of political office.”

    Dr. Conspiracy:

    It is a ministerial duty; the clerk doesn’t ask questions about the case. You write, request some signed subpoena forms, and the clerk complies.

    Oh: Taitz eventually figured out that she would a subpoena from Hawaii; her latest subpoena was signed by a clerk in the District Court of Hawaii.
