Former Ron Paul aide endorses Taitz

imageNine years ago, Eric Dondero (right) was a “senior aide” to Congressman Ron Paul. Nowadays he runs a web site called Libertarian Republican, and the big news is that he’s endorsing Orly Taitz for Senate (although not on the web site so far as I can tell). Here’s what Taitz reports from Dondero:

"Yes, when she first burst on the scene, many conservatives and libertarians were a little skeptical. But Orly Taitz has been completely vindicated. Whether or not Obama was born in Hawaii, or whether he was born in Kenya and then was flown by his mother to Hawaii a couple weeks later to gain U.S. citizenship, may never be known for sure. Perhaps Obama himself doesn’t know. But, those like Orly who were way out front on this issue the last couple years, have now been proven right. Obama was not fully vetted. And now with the author booklett (sic) that lists Obama’s birthplace as "Kenya", the truth is out.

Orly deserves to be our Republican nominee for US Senate in California. She may have a tough fight against Feinstein. However, it’s an opportunity to bring the issue of Obama’s birthplace out in the media. She is also a dedicated free market anti-nanny-state GOPer.

I enthusiastically endorse Orly Taitz for US Senate."

One might ask why Dondero would endorse political novice Orly Taitz. It appears she has the essential credentials. Dondero wrote at Libertarian Republican in a comment:

Ran, I want the fucker brought up on charges of treason after President Romney takes over.

I want Obama thrown in jail for lying about his birth certificate, and his US citizenship. We Republicans need to be ruthless with our Democrat enemies.

Just imagine if a Republican was in Obama’s shoes and lied about his citizenship? The Dems would be asking for him to be strung up at the nearest tree.

    What these birthers do not get is that their radical skepticism and rejection of the legal definitions of evidence and proof leads to no one able to prove they can be president. Everyone’s records can be question. All records, being constructs, will have mistakes, errors, questionable aspects which cannot be answered. Radical skepticism can never make a positive assertion. This is why the US has made room by only accepting reasonable doubt following the rules of evidence which requires basic things like official documents as being accepted as evidence…

    I also find it funny how “Libertarians” promote — well hate to other groups, seeking death and destruction and all out war with people of differing positions. Shows their policies are as Libertarian as Stalin’s was Communist. It is just a rhetorical tool basically saying “I want what I want, I must have what I want, damn the rest.”

    So Orly has received another endorsement from someone who holds absolutely no influence with CA voters. She’s a on quite a streak there!

    So, finding someone to continue pretending that Obama isn’t eligible is the one and only issue for this guy?

    Any progress Orly has made in her political career has been bought. She’s not a politician. She’s a horrible public speaker. She even can’t coherently articulate her one issue. She can’t work with other people. She’s so easily duped. She will be tolerated by smaller Republican organizations only as long as she donates to them.

    I find it difficult to believe that the RNC won’t find a way to derail her should she come close to winning the primary but then again they couldn’t stop Christine O’Donnell.

    This guy isn’t a libertarian. He’s an extremist wingnut. The only libertarian ideal I could find anywhere on his blog is the legalization of drugs. Otherwise he supports people like Brownback and war with Iran. He is another big government Republican.

    The website seems to be a large anti-Islam rant with some Romney thrown in for flavor. Given Orly’s Birtherism stems partially from anti-Islamic paranoia, she does have a bit of a common cause with this one.

    This former Ron Paul aide does seem a trifle miffed with his former employer. I wonder how this might play with Orly’s FMs who tend to lean toward Ron Paul (though the hatred of all things muslimy and the worship of theTaitz may be all the Flying Monkey’s really need).

    What did Democrats do when a Republican with questionable status as a natural born citizen sought the presidency?

    They voted for a Congressional resolution affirming his status as a natural born citizen. But, yeah, that’s pretty much the same thing as stringing someone up to the nearest tree, I guess.

    Bob:She’s not a politician.She’s a horrible public speaker.She even can’t coherently articulate her one issue.

    i caught a radio ad for orly’s campaign the other day on KFI, LA’s main talk radio station. i was surprised ( and disappointed ) that it actually was rational and coherent. it doesn’t feature orly and there is no direct mention of anything birther. if i remember correctly the main push was that she’d “work to bring jobs back to california and fight against the corruption in government”.

    one thing i found entertaining was the announcer’s pronunciation of her name. he called her “tights” ( i’ve always pronounced it “tates” ) and was oddly light on the “r” in her first name. so it sounded like he was repeatedly saying, and with emphisis, “oily tights”.

    BatGuano,

    She can pay for help for an ad. What she cannot do is speak. If her performance at the ballot challenge hearings are any indication, she cannot speak extemporaneously or even with preparation. She can’t even write simple sentences on her own blog.

    Right now she is complaining that Obama replaced the sound on one of her videos with music but what happened is that it is longer than YouTube accepts. Someone that paranoid cannot function in the real world without the buffer of money.

    Boy, has this guy totally discredited himself! Taitz a Libertarian? Her views on political freedom are Stalinist. That is,.she’s always saying that her opponents should and will be executed when the righteous side — hers — takes power. That’ll never happen, of course, thank God. The difference between Taitz, who grew up in the Soviet Union, and Stallin, is that he had the power to kill those who crossed him, or that he only suspected were thinking about crossing him. And he exercised this power to the fullest. Taitz is only, and forever, a wannabe..

    As I’ve noted many times, Orly and her crowd are actually fascists. I have posted this before:

    Dr. C., I think you’re misreading the story here. Eric Dondero is, as Ron Paul’s campaign put it, “a disgruntled ex-staffer.” He is purposely endorsing the highest-polling opponent (Orly Taitz) of the Ron Paul supporter running for Senate (Rick Williams).

    This has nothing to do with Ron Paul and Orly Taitz, as Dondero is no longer a Ron Paul supporter.

    Dr. Conspiracy May 28, 2012 at 11:47 pm #

    I think you are misreading my story. In no way did I say that Dondero was a Ron Paul supporter, and explicitly stated that his last official connection ot Paul was 9 years ago.

    Notice that Leo Berman, the East Texas state rep whjo ent deep birther on Anderson Cooper’s show 1 1/2 years agoi got whipped in the GOP primary Tuesday:

    State Representative District 6
    Leo Berman REP 8,172 42.32%
    Matt Schaefer REP 11,138 57.67%
    Berman, you may recall, defended birther lgends such as the Pakistani travel that even many birthers had given up for dead.

    Orly was endorsed by the Santa Barbara News-Press, the only daily newspaper in a town of 90,000 (but circulation 26,000, according to this wikipedia article).

    Careful visiting Orly’s, malware alert.

    I think that’s important news. It’s a broadsheet daily, endorsing a birther for the United States Senate. I’m going to try to generate some publicity about that, and I invite you to join me.

    LOL!

    Unlike her endless shameful debacles in the courts (which do have major entertainment value, but I hate to see continue, because they are such a waste and disgrace upon our court system), I do see nothing but sheer entertainment value about her attempts to run for political office (except when she inevitably just starts filing even more stupid lawsuits as a result).

    Simply by her mere infamous name recognition alone, combined with the unstable nature of such a large and weak field under such new and unusual voting rules, she actually is considered a “factor” in this CA Primary race…

    ROTFLMAO!!!

    If enough comedy votes get cast her way (as Feinstein’s seat is so overwhelmingly safe at the moment), it is actually possible that she could bumble her way into that 2nd slot for the General against Feinstein.

    Now THAT would be the comedic GOP EPIC FAIL race of the Century, hands down!!!

    Hey, crazier things have happened… Who can forget Alvin Greene’s inexplicable nomination for Senate in SC in 2010?

    So yeah, this CA Senate Primary is probably the ONE and only rare exception where I’m actually rooting for Orly to pull it off…. (of course we’re dealing with Orly here and the only thing she seems to be able to accomplish is failure….*sigh* )

    There have been comments on this site and TFB (probably others too) questioning Orly’s citizenship. My understanding is that naturalization info is public and is stored at the local NARA site. Maybe someone in CA could please take a little trip and let us all know if Orly really naturalized in 1992 as she claims? I think this would be a case where absence of evidence really would be evidence of absence.

    Orly has posted what purportedly is her U.S. passport (see http://www.thefogbow.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=5161&start=2350#p383620 ). (I haven’t checked it for layers yet.) The comment on TFB is that this only proves she has been a citizen since 2004, but doesn’t prove she has been a citizen for 9 years, the requirement for a senator.
