Observers may attend Taitz hearing today

Observer character (bald man in black suit using opera glass) from the Fringe TV seriesDiscussions at The Fogbow and on Reality Check Radio last night intimate that there may be anti-birther observers attending the Appeals Court hearing in Taitz v. Obama at 9 am Pacific Daylight Time this morning.

If so, we may look forward to the characteristically entertaining “Boots on the Ground”™ reports at The Fogbow and possibly a special edition of Reality Check Radio tonight. When I get links to the BOTG thread and to the RC show, I’ll add them to this article.

Taitz may be in big trouble as it appears that the Defendants will be represented by the terror of all birther attorneys, The Empty Chair™.

Orly has posted on her site:

Taitz v Obama was argued today at the 4th District Court of Appeal of CA. The court was full of my supporters, many of them oath keepers. Everyone felt good about the hearing, we are waiting for results. Will post TV and radio interviews when they are available

BOTG reports say Orly had about 20 supporters attending, and at least 8 Obots. Present for the anti-birther side included:

  • Wavey Davey
  • Objective Doubter
  • Woodworker
  • Dr. Caligari
  • Geritol
  • JonBeck
  • Kate520

For entertainment value, listen to the RC Radio Show. There wasn’t really anything new that I could see. Orly was Orly. Her argument was basically what was in her brief. The judges asked no questions. Orly brought 2 witnesses, but never tried to call them. Someone commented that under California Law, the Appeal must be decided within 90 days of today.

Afterwards Orly gave an interview to this video guy that follows her around. Also Wiley Drake was recording for his own radio program. Somebody passed the hat among her supporters and she was seen stuffing dollar bills into her purse.

    They’ll be easily recognizable, as the people doing their best to contain their laughter, I assume.

    `most losses in court by an individual lawyer to an empty chair – orly taitz’

    that is of course if anyone after all this time can actually class her as a lawyer

    It looks like the hearing didn’t last long, because the docket was updated at 10:05 a.m. PDT. The only appearance was by Orly, and the docket now shows that the cause has been submitted.

    He probably interviewed Orly in the parking lot.

    I’ve wondered if anyone has seriously thought about attempting to make a documentary about her? Charles Manson Superstar meets Grey Gardens.

    Squirrely was given 30 minutes to speak, no zibits, no witlesses, and no rebuttal, and was basically ignored by the justices. She appeared against her arch nemesis, the infamous M. T. Chair, yet again for all the other parties noticed and otherwise. They were supposedly very polite to her, I put it down as veiled sarcasm of too high a caliber for her to detect. Considering that they just let her ramble for her 30 minutes, it is a pretty good bet that the conclusion was long forgone before she ever made it to court this morning. The only question is was the actual decision already written off the pre-hearing memorandum or not, and will they wait a decent period of time, like maybe two days, before releasing their decision, Friday would be good for me. Considering what was actually being heard and at issue today, as opposed to what Squirrely thinks was going on, the decision could probably be boiled down to one or two sentences amounting to NO, and HELL NO!!! lower court sustained. Dismissed and closed.

    That’s “the undefeated, undisputed, penultimate terror of all birther attorneys, The Empty Chair™.”

    Or maybe ‘scourge’ instead of ‘terror’ 😉

    I think both are appropriate as Mr Chair is definitely a source of terror, at least for Squirrely, and certainly a scourge when it comes right down to it as he has won all his appearances whereas they are 0 for all.

    Forgive me, but is “Somebody passed had among her supporters and she was seen stuffing dollar bills into her purse” actually “passed a hat”?

    Doc, you left out Kate520 who was most certainly there. Yes, a little bit caught up in traffic, but she made it. 🙂

    Thanks. I knew she was supposed to be there, but never heard specifically. Story updated.
