Help reading map and other Orlybits

2012 Electoral College vote mapHave you seen this graphic?

It’s like all over the Internet. I snagged the image on the right off the Huffington Post web site, but it’s easily available from any major news web site or from the Wikipedia.

Orly Taitz, however, can’t read or can’t be bothered to read stuff like this. Rather, she has people to do things like that her, writing:

I remember that the difference was 1-2%, but I don’t remember how many states exactly voted for Obama. I need to figure the exact number of the states…

She also wants the names and addresses of all the secretaries of state in two lists, one for states that went Obama and one for states that went for Romney. (Thank goodness Maine and Nebraska went one way this time). She wants to send them a threatening letter or something along with a few hundred pages of crank expert testimony.

Other Orlybits:

Orly has a hearing scheduled in Indiana on the 27th. She’s asking Judge Reid whether it’s still on. The subject of the hearing: an order to show cause why Orly should not be held in contempt for publishing the audio recording of her trial last October 22. I understand that the recording was originally on her web site, and Orly sent a copy to the Court in Mississippi. An anonymous person published it on YouTube. Orly’s excuse “There  was never any order stating that parties are not allowed to post on you-tube audio recordings lawfully purchased from the court.” [Link to Taitz web site] The story made the The Indiana Law Blog. I do not take any position on who did what, nor on whether what was done was illegal.

Orly has, of course, bought into the massive vote fraud conspiracy theories and since she believes that all officials are corrupt, that’s pretty easy to do.

Orly is getting some obscene fan comments, which she gleefully posts on her site. If you are offended by certain words, you might not want to click on this [Link to Taitz web site and this comment]. The miscreant here appears to be from Canada or Texas—hard to tell.

Orly offered what she describes as “Additional evidence of proof of service on Attorney General of HI…” [Link to Taitz web site] It’s also evidence that she served the Hawaii Defendants in their official capacity under which they are immune from RICO. Oopsies.

After reading Orly’s bizarre article titled: “Is Nancy Pelosi President of the Electoral College?” [Link to Taitz web site], I was prompted to ask how Orly passed her citizenship test (much less her bar exam).

Oh, and Orly is claiming that folks are tampering with her web site again because she can’t upload some documents. She put them on Scribd instead. Excellent idea. And while on the tampering theme, I offer this bit of irony (screen taken November 20):

    Awesome comments there … Orly confronted with reality …. reacts predictably (shield your irony meters!):

    That is false. There is no “president” of the electoral college. The President of the Senate presides over the vote tally, after each state sends in their votes.

    this sounds like something completely made up, no basis for this statement.

    … and a link through to yet ANOTHER ludicrous “democrats” steal elections conspiracy meme:

    Why the GOP won’t challenge vote fraud
    http://fellowshipofminds.wordpress.com/2012/11/15/why-the-gop-will-not-do-anything-about-vote-fraud/

    .. in which it is posited that the Reds agreed in 1982 to let the blues steal elections.

    Which explains so much about why the POTUS elections have split evenly since 1982 (4 each. I can count to 4, right?), and the Reds have pulled off a Congressional resurgence.

    Because the Blues have been stealing elections wrong. Until this year, when they finally got it right. ;)

    I’ve been meaning to ask: Do real attorneys frequently post their court motions, filings, subpeonas, etc., on their personal web sites? I know that competent attorneys sometimes write blogs (such as my favorite, the Bob Loblaw Law Blog), but surely they don’t just repost court documents up there.

    Well, if the point of their filing, and the whole case, is so everyone will “look at me” they will certainly put it on a personal web site. That is, except when ebil Obots are messing with here site again.

    Should we give Orly solitary confinement or make her live in a ward with fifteen other mental patients in whichever FEMA detention camp we end up sending her to?

    Don’t let Orly know that in New York the election results are certified by the Board of Elections, not by the Secretary of State.

    Orly’s on an internet radio show right now. http://www.theamericanvoice.com/

    Apparently she went on early.

    She would have also spent another month trying to figure out how Nebraska split had that happened.

    They’ll probably just decide that shooting her is less expensive to tax payers.

    Dr. Taitz has published her letter to Judge Reid on her web site. It is completely delusional. Doc, you ought to print it here.

    I like how someone offered to help her, sending her his home phone number — which she promptly published on her site. No good deed goes unpunished in OrlyWorld.

    Oh, dear. Someone forgot to tell Mitt Romney before he spent 7 years and around 50 million of his own dollars (as of 2008, it’s surely more now) to run for president.

    No wonder he’s acting so angry and bitter right now, lashing out at everyone, pointing fingers and trying to shift blame.

    > Orly is getting some obscene fan comments, which she gleefully posts on her site.

    Another typical birther pattern. Obot posts which are obscene/illiterate (and I would bet my bottom dollar those are birthers posing as Obots) are posted (to show how “rude” and “stupid” those ebil libruls are), Obot posts which point out where the birther is wrong are lost in translation moderation.

    US Citizen: She would have also spent another month trying to figure out how Nebraska split had that happened.

    I guess it would’ve spurned some rounds of “Can we get other states Obama won to split, too? Then Romney could still win!”…

    Heh.. no kidding!
    Besides, according to her we’re a banana republic now.
    It would seem logical to split given that status.

    For those birthers willing to give Orly money and who never saw this before, here is Orly’s house:

    Now tell me again why you give her your money?

    Now tell me again why you give her your money?

    According to Realtor.com, homes in her zipcode range from $300K to $21M. Her home is ~1,000 feet from the Pacific Ocean.

    Her home would go on the market > $1M. Homes that close to the ocean, are > $1.5M.

    My 500 sq.ft. Chinatown loft is furnished exclusively from IKEA and eBay. It has not appreciated even one dollar in ten years. Before the stroke, I did not own a car – I just had a Honda bike, parked in ramp, one block away. The space rental went up every year.

    Dr. Conspiracy:

    Thanks. I was going to say something about the same.
    Her home is about a half mile from the beach and appears to be around 6000 sq ft or so.
    That would place it in the millions here in So Cal.
    I’ve seen 80 year old 900 sq ft homes in the San Fernando Valley go for over $500K.
    Her home is much newer, in a gated community and with a pool and jacuzzi.

    I can’t believe that people pay that much money for the privilege of living on top of their neighbors. We had 9 acres in PA for slightly more than Orly’s faux mansion’s listed price. I’m in NC now where prices are far more reasonable along with taxes. Not to mention, if Orly was my neighbor, I’d move due to the fact that sooner or later one of her neighbors will do something to set her off and cause a meltdown like the one she’s exhibited in the past with her son’s school.

    I don’t think she has near the number of supporters she pretends she does. There are far too many sock puppets that use phrases similar to her and speak of her as Dr. Orly Taitz, ESQ., a sure sign of her inflated ego.

    My takeaway from your post is that it might still be affordable to live in San Francisco.
    You didn’t share the price of your unappreciated loft with its nearby parking space :-) In all seriousness, when I was searching for exactly that, it wasn’t available for any price I could afford on a $105K salary, and I ended up not moving to California because of it.
