…people can’t simply say I am an expert in a particular area because they want to be an expert.
Having read the transcript now, I think the one thing that the Fogbow reports did not convey was the sense of passion and urgency from Taitz. I got a little of this same speech when I talked to her on the phone. I think Taitz really believes that Paul Irey is a qualified expert and that Sheriff Arpaio conducted a professional investigation. She fully believes that Obama is a fraud and that she’s being thwarted by complacency and corruption.
The problem is that Irey is biased and no expert. Arpaio’s investigators were not qualified, and even presented faked evidence. The courts have uniformly and correctly applied the law. From a sympathetic point of view, it is somewhat a shame that Taitz, who is herself not technically competent to judge the evidence she presents, is uniformly kicked out of court, rather than having her experts cross examined, and her evidence ground to powder by competent experts representing the President. She remains in a sort of limbo where she can say that on one has really looked at her evidence, and continue to believe in it.
One thing from the transcript is abundantly clear: Judge England did look at her evidence. He said:
Court’s also read all of the articles that have been written about this that were submitted, has reviewed the DVD tape that you sent to the Court as tapes yesterday, read a number of other articles about the cases, read the cases themselves that you’ve been in…
Also when Orly presented her posters, the Judge knew that they came from Irey.
Personally, I think Taitz has made a huge mistake relying on volunteer experts. She spends money flying them across the country when there is no question in anybody’s mind that they are not certified and their methodology is not recognized. Every cent she spends and every word she writes in her briefs based on these people is a waste, an utter and complete waste. What Taitz should do is hire a certified electronic document examiner. I don’t know what it would cost, but it would certainly cost a lot less than she has spent to date on placebos. If that expert says the document is a forgery, then the news media would listen and then her movement might go somewhere. If that expert says that there is no evidence of forgery, then she could get her life back.
