How can you tell the difference between a house of cards and a house of bricks? Hit it with your fist.
Bloody-knuckled birthers continue their attack on President Obama, trusting to the theory that everything that follows from what they believe is an eligible President will fall down like a house of cards, once he is proven ineligible. Frequent filer Montgomery Blair Sibley has selected some folks who have a very personal interest in the house falling down, people convicted of fraud under a law President Obama signed May 20, 2009.
DCist.com reports the story that Sibley has created a motion template for people convicted under the 2009 Fraud Enforcement and Recovery Act (the act makes it easier to prosecute cases of mortgage fraud and predatory lending). They can petition the court to have their convictions overturned because Obama isn’t really President, forcing, Sibley believes, the courts to adjudicate the President’s eligibility.
One wonders whether the creation of this template constitutes the practice of law, which disbarred Sibley is not permitted to do.
It’s a scheme worthy of Orly Taitz, who indeed is trying something quite similar regarding invalidating actions by Obama appointees (who aren’t really appointed because Obama, so she says, isn’t really President).
