Orly weighs options

Orly Taitz writes on her blog that she is contacting the various plaintiffs in her cases to see if they want to proceed, or withdraw. She concludes:

I will see in the near future, if there will be support from the GOP or major donors. Without the support I might need to withdraw my cases and seek dismissal without prejudice. I’ve done more than most people to seek justice and uphold the  system of justice in this country. I will decide in the near future if I will proceed with the remaining challenges. I appreciate the support and encouragement from all of you. My supporters gave me the strength to go on while I was viciously attacked, however without support from the GOP and major donors and without one single honest judge willing to hear the case on the merits, I do not know if I can continue much longer.

It cost Taitz $4,000 just for one frivolous motion to compel a non-party in California, paid in sanctions to Occidental College for one opposition  legal brief and one appearance in court. Multiply that by 6 cases, over 30 defendants, multiple court appearances and thousands of pages in legal briefs. The result is staggering.

Orly can play Lady Liberty, but in the end for her it’s all about the money.

    The best advice I can give Orly is to tell her and her supporters to begin a frenzy of contacting Congressmen and Senators and have them file a written objection to the Joint Session of Congress based on the investigation by Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Even if the BC is a losing issue, they still can weigh the Selective Service forgery of Obama. If Obama is guilty of forged Selective Service, he can’t serve as President as failure to register for Selective Service forbid anyone from holding Federal office.

    You are a shonde and momser. You destroyed your dental practice, and strained your marriage.

    Go away.

    Orly is so toxic that the Republican Party and Conservative superpacs spent well over $500 million this election cycle but still they can’t fund her ugly little smear. Even someone as repugnant as Gnome Coarse-y got to ride on Mitt’s campaign plane yet Orly is completely shunned.

    Taitz and her co-plaintiffs can’t just withdraw from her Mississippi case. Several defendants have filed answers in that case; under the federal rules, a plaintiff can’t voluntarily withdraw if an answer has been filed.

    People on the Fogbow are reporting that some of the defendants offered to let the case be dismissed if Taitz would pay them $25,000, and she refused.

    Could be a safety issue. I think her voice could cause metal fatigue, and what sane person is going to risk that on a plane?

    No, Orly! No! Every vexatious litigant pauses momentarily and feels misgivings as they enter the fifth year of their non-stop quixotic assault on our legal system.

    Take a day off and treat yourself to an oil-of-cloves massage, while I compose your daily messages to your fans. Use it – no charge.

    Oily : “This is huge! A 79 year-old man out walking in rural Alabama stepped on a grass hopper crossing the road, and the resulting stain on the sidewalk looks very much like Obama is ineligible to the Presidency.” IMPORTANT! (I need my supporters to call the justices of the Supreme Court and demand that they dig up all the paved roads in Alabama, immediately.)

    Also could the supporter who said they have their own amateur video of Obama making the sign-of-the-cross at his victory party in Chicago last night, send me a crayon sketch of that event? We think the “cross” is a forgery.”

    Shhh! Don’t tell Orly ;)

    The settlement offer was genuine, and was refused. Attorney Scott Tepper said on Reality Check Radio that they may seek “six figures” in sanctions, and could justify it.

    I am bemused by your comment. Surely you know that the Constitution sets the eligibility requirements for the President. Congress can’t just make a law with a new requirement. Even if the silly selective service rumor were true (which it most certainly is not), the law could not apply to the President.

    As Scott Tepper said, and has been reiterated here, neither Orly nor the other Plaintiffs can simply with draw the action without prejudice. There would be “conditions” to the withdrawal, and I assume that means paying attorney’s fees and that the cases be withdrawn with prejudice. I am sure that Scott can think of a thing or two more.

    If you follow Orly as closely as I have though, this is just a depressive state following the election. She will soon be back in a manic phase and all it will take is something said to her in MS or some other state that she considers “outrageous” and off she will go with renewed vigor.

    Hmm.. It sounds like he has been hanging out at St. John’s Across the Street to much. If he demands incense at his consecration inauguration, then you will know he has crossed over. Maybe a new conspiracy because birthers would be quite certain that an Episcopalian would never be ineligible, since they are in league with the Brits (or at least one of their Pointy-hatted Prelates).

    From Orly’s blog today:

    “THIS IS TREASON! I HOPE EVERY AMERICAN FIGHTS THIS TREASON AGAINST THE RIGHTS OF THE U.S. MEMBERS OF THE MILITARY.”

    That was in response to an article she published written by ‘DREW’ about absentee ballots destined for U.S. Military abroad being late, or buried in mine fields or whatever and how they could have swung the election for RMoney.

    I tried to leave a comment, but the ‘connection to the server was reset while the page was reloading’. Here is what I tried to say:

    This military absentee ballot ‘issue’ just is not true. The entire story is fiction from the first words ‘Sources confirmed’ (what sources? how do they know?) to the final period in the last sentence.

    For example, folks in Grand Rapids, Michigan were up all night counting the approximately 600 military absentee ballots they received (along with the several thousand of non-military absentee ballots). In addition, 31 States allow overseas military and private citizens to vote electronically over the internet – eliminating the need for absentee ballot papers altogether.

    Before you start shouting TREASON at perfectly reasonable, patriotic, fellow Americans, you could at least TRY to validate the charges. It really doesn’t take much effort to validate this kind of thing.

    You might also look up the definition of treason in America.

    I never look at Taitz web site, and I don’t really know what the heck inspired me to do so. I guess I’m still in withdrawal from trading in my old car after 15 terrific years.

    Sadly, John, that probably IS the best advice you can give her. That says a lot more about you and your laughable beliefs than it does about President Obama.

    Keith: The entire story is fiction from the first words ‘Sources confirmed’ (what sources? how do they know?)

    You can always tell it’s a (birther/RWNJ/…) made-up story if it starts by referring to anonymous sources (or non-verifiable sources such as “an internal report by the KGB”).

    Credible reports would always refer to things like “as John Doe, spokesman of the Alaskan SOS, confirmed, …”.

    But it was to be expected that lots of “Romney would’ve won if foul play hadn’t been involved” stories would pop up, if only to infuriate the wingnut base.

    In this case, the article she refers to is not only fiction, it is an intentional spoof (voting 8 months early?).

    http://www.duffelblog.com/

    She likely only saw the parts of the site that told her what she wanted to hear and not the far more important titles: Romney Surges In Polls, Following Promise To Personally Pay Entire Defense Budget.

    Orly,

    Never give up, Lady Liberty!
    The Electoral College hasn’t met yet. There is still time to serve subpoenas and litigate the truth!

    The Magic M November 8, 2012 at 11:54 am #

    Oh yes, I forgot subpoenas! The magic book of spells that will remove the usurper, like it has done at least 20 times before!

    Orly should subpoena all electors from the EC to each and every remaining active lawsuit she has, and RICO (and a pony).
    Or send them Clown Joe’s affidavit and hope some will then vote for Romney instead.

    If Orly recovers, we will see all kinds of inventive activity.
