Orly Taitz: It’s a racket

Racketeering seems to be a theme at the Orly Taitz web site these days, exemplified by her latest article: “I need your help in getting names and addresses of the Presidents of the major networks to put them on notice of possible RICO charges against them.” I didn’t hyperlink to the article because there is no article, just the title. RICO is, of course, is the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act. I can only speculate what Taitz means, but I assume it must have something to do with the media’s criticism of the Arizona Cold Case Posse. She’s going to have a hard time proving that the “media” is an organization, much less a criminal one.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz photoFollowing the racketeering theme, Taitz threatened Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (pictured right) in an article, “Press release! Chairwoman of the Democratic National committee was put on notice of possible civil racketeering charges.” Taitz sent Schultz copies of her failed pleading in the Georgia case of of Farrar v. Obama and threatens that if she certifies Obama as the Democratic candidate, Taitz will add the Florida congresswoman to her little RICO list as well as sue her for fraud, forgery, wire fraud, Social Security fraud and treason. Gee, I didn’t know you could sue for that?

    Why the State Bar of California continues to let this woman “practice” law I’ll never show. Her law license should’ve been burned in a dumpster on live television years ago.

    RICO! Youngblood! Wake up!
    Prohibition is over, but the country’s still a mess!
    They need us out there!
    We’ve got some cleaning up to do – especially when it comes to
    THIS GUY . . .

    we haven’t had so much humor since the Rowan & Martin show, but seriosly this madwoman needs to be banned from all courthouse, there is only one house she needs to be in, that’s Bellview Hospital, they have jackets with very long sleeves.

    I would love to see Orly attempt to prepare a complaint for civil RICO! One of the most complex and irrational parts of the law.

    I agree that the State Bar is woefully negligent and delayed. The only excuse is that they are delayed in every case they have.

    richCares: there is only one house she needs to be in, that’s Bellview Hospital

    It’s “Bellevue Hospital Center,” most often referred to as “Bellevue”, founded on March 31, 1736 and is the oldest public hospital in the United States.

    That’s where I was born, buster. You got a problem with that? ‘Cause I got your hospital right here. True story: When the US Mint said they were going to issue quarters for each state, with the state’s motto, I wrote suggesting for New York, the motto should be “I got your quarter right here.” No reply.

    Alert – New York humor.

    . “Obama and threatens that if she certifies Obama as the Democratic candidate, Taitz will add the Florida congresswoman to her little RICO list as well as sue her for fraud, forgery, wire fraud, Social Security fraud and treason. ”

    Maybe the lawyers can chime in on this- isn’t telling someone that you will sue them unless they do as you tell them considered blackmail?

    I still get giggles thinking of her running as a Republican candidate in California….

    Orly is just weird. I can’t think of any other single adjective that works better. She’s like a child in that she throws temper tantrums every time she can’t get her way. Only in addition to temper tantrums, she uses frivolous and misapplied legal action.

    I won’t say that she precisely understands the law at the same level as a child. She seems to know of the existence of various legal terms, and a vague understanding of what they are (for example she knows that RICO is used to target organized crime), but can’t understand how to apply them. That’s probably one step above a child’s understanding. I remember hearing the term “law suit” for the first time when I was 7 years old. I thought it applied to the clothes lawyers wore in court. Orly at least knows what a law suit is even if she doesn’t know the proper rules for filing them.

    It’s Orlylaw, plain and simple.

    She believes that EVERYONE who is against her and will not listen to her is “in” on the Grand Conspiracy (TM), therefore – they are all eligible to be prosecuted under the RICO law.

    It’s GENIUS, I tells ya!

    orly, orly, ORLY!!!!!!!!!!! I want to take her by both arms and shake her and say, listen you lunatic…….anyhow, orly is just tiresome. I suppose she’s largely harmless, but who knows with these folks.

    The CA Bar is probably doing exactly what it should not do, and that’s ignore her until she does something egregious and they HAVE to act. What that might be, I have no idea. I guarantee that when they do act, orly will sue them and maybe this is why they just ignore her.

    I can’t believe she’s as stupid as she seems.

    Orly has the mind of a magpie….She sees (or hears) as shiny new magical word or phrase and suddenly she KNOWS if she only repeats it loudly and longly enough it wil work ANY DAY NOW……The fact that the new shiny is intrinsically useless and isn’t ACTULLY what she thinks it is always eludes her.

    Favourites have included “misprision of felony”, “ObamaFraudGate” and “subpoena”…….

    She threatens a lot of things. The threat is the important thing for her. The threat is what gets donations (it certainly wouldn’t be the results she’s gotten).

    Her pointless scheme to send a transcript of the Georgia hearing to all 50 secretaries of state was forgotten when she found out it would cost $23,000. I guess it wasn’t all that important.

    I can’t believe she doesn’t have a personal assistant to do things like take care of her mess of a website. Often the letters from her “supporters” are little more than insults that she doesn’t understand because English isn’t her first language. She seems impossible to work for and her ever having a viable dental practice is unimaginable.

    OH SNAP! THat is hysterical!!! Just when I was thinking the birther calendar had thnned back out to watery gruel!

    Barratry … champerty …. holy crap, birtherism has worked miracles for the zombie trade. The last (only?) time I came across those arcane terms was in a Dickens novel. OK, not really, but dang, them words is dusty.

    This the same day that those lawyers suing their law school in NY got bounced. Heh.

    Here’s hoping this goes the distance.
