I’ve put Orly Taitz (pictured right) on a 24-hour watch starting at 4 PM EDT tomorrow in anticipation of some sort of grand implosion by Taitz as she executes Plan “B” (or Plan “C”) following the inevitable refusal by the Hawaii Department of Health to break Hawaiian law in response to her subpoena [link to Taitz web site] and let her peek at, photograph and scan Obama’s original birth certificate. According to Taitz, unqualified volunteers Douglas Vogt1 and Paul Irey2 will be serving as her “experts”, and a reporter from the New York Times will record the fiasco.
In a related story [link to Taitz web site], Orly Taitz is actually exhibiting some skepticism about Dr. Ron Polland’s assertion [link to Polland web site] that he forged Obama’s short-form birth certificate. When I read Polland’s claim that he had forged the certificate that resides on Obama’s Fight The Smears web site, I assumed that I had just misunderstood what he meant – and didn’t really care to waste the time to figure it out. Taitz, however, takes Polland literally and is demanding a sworn affidavit from him, which she says he refused to give, before she’ll accept it. After all, Lucas Smith provided a sworn affidavit associated with his birth certificate forgery, why shouldn’t Polland be held to the standard?
Back before Polland’s real name was revealed, he was willing to sign affidavits for Orly:
1I will concede that Douglas Vogt is expertly-qualified to operate a scanner. Of course, Vogt denies that there is any original to look at. If he should ever get a chance to look at the original document, his theory is shot to hell.
2I had the opportunity to talk directly with Paul Irey on the Reality Check radio program, and for all his odd views and biases, he is an honest and straight-shooting guy. If he should ever get a chance to look at the original document in person, he may well recant his analysis (or perhaps claim the White House copy wasn’t based on the original).
