What’s really going on in Taitz v. Colvin

There must be a pony in here somewhere!1

Orly Taitz is nothing if not an optimist. She’s particularly excited about a recent ruling from Federal District Judge Ellen Hollander in Maryland, allowing her to file a second amended complaint in her Taitz v. Colvin FOIA lawsuit attempting to get Social Security records of one “Harrison J. Bounel” born in 1890.

Various right-wing web sites have mistakenly assumed that the government has been ordered to produce records within 21 days. In fact, Taitz’s first amended complaint was dismissed, and she has 21 days to file something else or the entire case will be dismissed.

Taitz interprets the judge’s ruling this way:

This is a great development. This all but assures that the judge will order the SSA to release the SS-5, Social Security application of resident of CT, Harrison (Harry) Bounel, whose CT SSN 042-68-4425 was stolen by Obama and used in Obama’s 2009 tax returns …

What Taitz fails to comprehend is the reason behind the judges ruling. Judge Hollander cites a previous government response:

We were unable to find any information for Mr. Bounel based on the information you provided to us. Mr. Bounel may not have applied for a Social Security number (SSN) or may have given different information on the application for a number.

Once the government responds to the FOIA request, then the FOIA lawsuit becomes moot. Judge Hollander notes that: “[Taitz] did not address the defendant’s argument regarding mootness.” Further, the judge notes that Taitz failed to challenge the adequacy of the search which indicated no records for Mr. Bounel, which is the only remaining grounds under which Taitz could continue her lawsuit.

What is significant is what has been known since the government’s original response: they don’t have any records on a Harrison J. Bounel born in 1890.

Praying for the welfare of Orly Taitz

Orly Taitz has her hopes up [link to Taitz web site] that her FOIA lawsuit against the Social Security Administration will yield universe-shattering disclosures about the President’s social-security number. She wrote:

Taitz will be very careful not to be Breitbarted or Fuddied in the next 21 days.

I certainly hope that Orly Taitz will still be one of the 7,200,285,955 (estimated as of this writing) living persons on the planet at the end of 21 days, and indeed still so on January 20, 2017.

I don’t think I could deal with the conspiracies that would erupt should anything happen to her.

 


1This refers to a joke often told by Ronald Reagan:

Next the psychiatrist treated the optimist.  Trying to dampen his out look, the psychiatrist took him to a room piled to the ceiling with horse manure.  But instead of wrinkling his nose in disgust, the optimist emitted just the yelp of delight the psychiatrist had been hoping to hear from his brother, the pessimist.  Then he clambered to the top of the pile, dropped to his knees, and began gleefully digging out scoop after scoop with his bare hands.  ”What do you think you’re doing?” the psychiatrist asked, just as baffled by the optimist as he had been by the pessimist. “With all this manure,” the little boy replied, beaming, “there must be a pony in here somewhere!”

    She has such little respect for the plight of the families of those who have died in the Sandy Hook tragedy, and the Boston Massacre, and is not above harassing those affected, to support her windmill chasing. This minute she’s trying to get her supports to pester the release of Fuddy’s autopsy to those who have no business seeing it. If Orly dropped dead tomorrow, at least her family members would be safe from such an indignity, as no one gives a damn about the bitchy old skank but them! That’s to say that they even care about her. If I was related to her, I’d have changed my last name and gone into hiding years ago!

    Is there really no way to get this ghastly women out of the legal profession? I can’t think of any other country where to accuse of treason a judge who ruled against you would not result in swift and crushing professional sanctions. A Canadian lawyer was suspended recently just for being sarcastic about his opponent. As Taitz is the worst lawyer imaginable [interesting that she hasn't mentioned the Klayman decision, presumably because he achieved something -for now - that she never has, which is actually winning a case] who doesn’t ever read statutes or decisions, and doesn’t understand them when she does, there must also be serious questions around her professional competence.

    My article “Praying for the welfare of Orly Taitz” has been integrated into this article, and the two comments preceding moved here from that article.

    “I don’t think I could deal with the conspiracies that would erupt should anything happen to her.”

    For the truly diehard, lifer residents of Plana Amabo, if Taitz passes peacefully in her sleep 30ys from now, it will be because They (the Obamagoons) finally Got to Her. There will be only one possible cause of death, no matter the means to that particular end, whether it be cancer, heart disease, aneurysm, whatever, or whenever, it will be Them.

    Only consolation is, the longer she lives, the less likely that much will be made of her passing.

    Unless she finally wins that Senate seat someday. And installs the first dentist’s chair on the floor of the US Senate …

    It is unlikely that I will be alive, or if alive able to remember who Orly Taitz is 30 years from now.

    Don’t be such a pessimist: if we (I think I’m about the same age) are still alive, it will probably be because they’ve found treatments that delay/prevent senility.

    Unless, of course, it’s because they’ve found a way to plug us into The Matrix to power the youngsters’ electric sky sleds and recoup some of our excessive withdrawals from the SS Trust Fund…

    Not to mention those who’ve been run over by bread trucks, or burned by poorly-designed space heaters, and are waiting their turn in our glacially-slow court system while she ties it up with her self-important grandstanding.

    What this country needs is a reality-TV network of moot courts, where we can force people like Taitz and Apuzzo to play out their fantasies in an arena that doesn’t have real impact on real people. It’d give them the attention they crave without harming others.

    it’s an irresistible theme:

    “waiting for stockman”
