Today Orly Taitz says [link to Taitz web site] she gets 20 minutes1 to present her side in Grinols v. Electoral College today at 2 PM before Judge Morris C. England, Jr., arguing for a temporary restraining order against Congress counting the Electoral College votes tomorrow, and to prevent her subpoenas from being quashed. One of her witnesses, commercial printer Paul Irey, is none too happy about the 15 minutes she promised him, writing in an email [link to Taitz web site] to Orly:
When did you figure this out? I just finished pasting up the 13 exhibits on foam core. 15 minutes is not nearly enough … nor is it worth flying across the country and back for 15 minutes total time to testify. You probably have 2 hours and the attorneys are going to spent that time objecting to the hearing … simply because they don’t want the evidence presented. Why can’t you stop them? That’s what they did the last time.
I spent over a week preparing for 15 minutes??? Sure … the less testimony the better … for the criminals avoiding conviction. I’m going to run everything that I can’t testify to on WND and say so. Judge did not want to hear it. Obama’s attorneys do not want to hear it. I was ready to prove the forgery about 15 different ways … but now we can say that the courts run us out before we can present the testimony … then the press censors it and the congress does nothing.
I am getting out of this country where Mickey Mouse can run for president because there are no laws against it … and no one has “standing” to challenge treason.
Personally, I don’t see how Orly could begin to think of giving Irey 15 of her precious 20 minutes and I sincerely doubt that she will. The issue at today’s hearing is not whether Obama’s social-security number is fake or whether his birth certificate is a forgery; the issue is whether a federal court can order Congress not to count votes tomorrow. It’s a legal question. If Orly tried to put Paul Irey on the Stand, it would be a repeat of what happened in Indiana, the defense would be objecting to everything said, only this time in front of a much more competent judge. It would be a total fiasco. If Orly wanted Irey’s testimony considered, she should have done by affidavit.
I don’t know if this was made public by accident, but an exchange was published on the Fogbow that discloses some of the defense strategy. Read it quick before it’s deleted. Some anti-birther folks should be in attendance today, and we may expect reports to filter in. Reality Check hopes to have some eye witnesses on a special edition of his radio show tonight at 9 PM. Those are always entertaining and informative.
