Orly Unraveling

I thought it was ironic that during the Vice-Presidential debate, Paul Ryan accused Joe Biden of playing the fear card, when Ryan was the one saying that Social Security and Medicare would come crashing down and American foreign policy was unraveling across the world. “Unraveling” is a very evocative word when applied to anyone’s policy and so I use it here only after this warning that the word can be abused.

Photo: Orly Taitz similingOrly Taitz is making a “huge” deal of her upcoming trial in Indiana, October 22. In her world, it is huge because it is a real trial before a Superior Court and she has an hour (maybe more) to call witnesses. She has real court-issued subpoenas  sent out.

As others have pointed out, those subpoenas are unenforceable outside of Indiana, something Orly hasn’t quite grasped. She desperately wants Mike Zullo and Sheriff Joe Arpaio to appear and they’re refusing. Orly is threatening legal action against Arpaio and believes that someone, perhaps WND or Jerome Corsi is telling these folks not to help her. John Sampson, the retired immigration enforcement officer who testified for her in Atlanta says he’s involved in an election campaign, and won’t be going anywhere until after November 6.

She hoped for a whole day for the trial. She’s getting an hour for her side. If the trial happens at all (and I still have doubts about this) she will have to face real attorneys who are going to show up, not an empty chair. Based on the limitations placed on causes of action by judge Reid, I’m not sure Orly even has a relevant witnesses, much less qualified ones (Paul Irey is coming, but I don’t see how anything he says is relevant in a trial solely involving the Indiana Secretary of State and the Elections Commission, plus he’s not a qualified expert). The rules of evidence and relevance will be applied. This not going to be pretty.

Meanwhile Orly is sending letters to Sam Begley, the attorney representing the Mississippi Democratic Party Executive Committee, threatening him with criminal prosecution for sending the Court a readable copy of President Obama’s long-form birth certificate. Instead of cringing in his boots, Begley perhaps has the best attorney reply to her that I have seen in a birther case, “Go away.” Orly in turn has been recruiting new Mississippi plaintiffs, but that case will be dismissed before she ever gets to amend her complaint to add them. You might not be able to read this because of formatting problems on Orly’s site, so here is Begley’s reply:

Dear Ms. Taitz In response to your letter to me dated October 11, 2012 and e-mailed today, your claims are preposterous, your evidence non-existent, any evidence of a fraud exists only in your own mind, and (as we wrote in our motion for judgment on the pleadings) ignoring you does not constitute a RICO violation. Also, under Mississippi law your current ridiculous claims are time barred and as an out of state resident you have no standing to bring them. If I have not made it clear in the past, go away.

Orly’s manic ride is unraveling, and I don’t know how she will take it. She seems to ride the rollercoaster through its peaks and valleys and keep on riding, but from my point of view it’s painful to watch as the next sharp drop looms.

    It is not painful at all to me. Hopefully she will get exactly what she deserves. I know it sounds mean, but I wish I could be there when she finally cracks and is on the floor in a fetal position with drool coming out of her mouth. She is vile human being who combines her ignorance of the law with an unjustified arrogance of the correctness of her position and her legal “talents”. I believe that judges have been way too lenient with her and she needs to be smacked down, HARD.

    I am amazed at the restraint that judges have had as they watch and see her threaten them as well as anyone who disagrees with her. Aside from calling several judges traitors, she has released the social security number of at least one, sued one (has she ever heard of judicial immunity?), and threaten any number of them with criminal prosecution. She has tried to silence anyone who disagrees with her and demanded that her flying monkeys do her bidding by attacking anyone who criticizes her.

    We all know what Lena is and I will not apologize for wanting her to crack. She is an evil, mean spirited blight on the legal community.

    I find it painful to watch but I don’t know why; Orly herself has no capacity for embarrassment. I always come back to the question of will her family intervene or do they enjoy seeing her make a fool of herself?

    “She desperately wants Mike Zullo and Sheriff Joe Arpaio to appear and they’re refusing.”

    Did they actually respond or just ignore her?

    She’s trashed Arpaio on her blog many times yet keeps requesting he testify for her.

    To all you attorneys out there who comment here: Can we join in a movement to get this included in the next edition of West’s Legal Forms? This deserves to be immortalized as a classic of truth-telling snark.

    I never noticed until now that Orly must have selected a theme for her site called “Make Me Look as Batguano Crazy as Possible”.

    Her novel-length post titles (does she not know the difference between titles and actual posts?), such as:

    An extremely “professional” response from the attorney for the Democratic party of Mississippi, Sam Begley. Keep in mind, that in his pleadings he claimed that our prior challenges were not ripe until Obama is nominated by his party. MS requires to go to the candidate’s party first and does not limit the election chalenges to the residents of MS

    are bad enough, but I didn’t realize until I copied and pasted one that they are automatically rendered in all caps:

    AN EXTREMELY “PROFESSIONAL” RESPONSE FROM THE ATTORNEY FOR THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY OF MISSISSIPPI, SAM BEGLEY. KEEP IN MIND, THAT IN HIS PLEADINGS HE CLAIMED THAT OUR PRIOR CHALLENGES WERE NOT RIPE UNTIL OBAMA IS NOMINATED BY HIS PARTY. MS REQUIRES TO GO TO THE CANDIDATE’S PARTY FIRST AND DOES NOT LIMIT THE ELECTION CHALENGES TO THE RESIDENTS OF MS

    …plus a nice crowded line spacing, for that extra “LET ME FEENISH!” touch.

    Sorry, but I hope TV cameras are there to record her breakdown – which is coming. Popcorn.

    She’s a nogoodnik.

    I got myself arrested at a Soviet Embassy demonstration for the likes of her.

    The Maricopa County attorney in the Farrar Case actually responded that the subpoena was not valid. I’d have to read some more on her site to see if there is a response this time.

    i read it (“threating”) a few times to see if you were quoting orly

    when i type “threating” on my screen, it’s underlined in red

    this is still in your article: “Orly is threating legal action”

    Presumably, that worked with Charles Lincoln III, but Arpaio’s shame threshold seems far too elevated to kick in at the mere implication that he too, could share her dental chair.

    The only real problem I have with the title is that it assumes that Orly was “raveled” at some point. She’s been unraveled for several years, as far as I’m concerned. I’m waiting for the epic meltdown, judges slapping her with hefty sanctions (and vexatious litigant status), or both.

    Now you’ve done it. By extension, must we also assume that Orly was, at some point, “glued”? Was she ever “hinged”? It’s hard to imagine she was ever “sufferable.” Certainly she’s not looking as “kempt” as she once did.

    It defintely has me nerved.

    The day “loltaitz” and “icanhazsanctions.com” become part of internet lore, birtherism will be truly and finally dead. 😉

    Yoda: We all know what Lena is and I will not apologize for wanting her to crack.

    Still I am somewhat partially sympathetic towards her because she is a mental nutcase and can’t help herself. There are many other birther figureheads who are mentally sane and know exactly what they’re doing (for money, for political gains, for their pure racism), those I despise much more.
