Solved: The Mystery of the Missing Motion

You know how it is in Orly Taitz land. Everybody is out to get her and to sabotage her cases. The most recent report from her blog says that the court deep-sixed her latest brief in Taitz v. Colvin, and not only that: When she tries to call the court, her call is disconnected! The article is titled: “So far MD District Court did not docket my reply with the complaint about prior documents disappearing from the docket. what is going on? A complaint will be sent directly to Judge Hollander. I need your assistance in calling the court and asking to docket the reply and exhibits ASAP. Every time I call the court at  (410) 962-2600, I am being disconnected[.]” [Link to Taitz site]

What is her solution?

  1. Write a blog article about it!
  2. Ask her readers to call the court for her!
  3. Promise to complain to the judge!

To put this in perspective, Orly wrote this desperate plea for help yesterday and the court received her paperwork [wait for it] yesterday. If Taitz had let the dust settle until today, all would have been made clear.

I am not a lawyer, but just nosing around I have found this legal principle that says the movant gets the last word. For example:

  • Plaintiff: Mommy, Tommy hit me!
  • Defense: Did not!
  • Plaintiff: Did too!

At this point, the dispute would be “fully briefed.” Tommy has had his say in the matter. Now Tommy might want to say something else, but he has to get permission first:

  • Mommy, can I please say something else?

Should Tommy’s mother give permission for something else to be said, that would be called a “surreply” and then another response to that could be made.

  • Defense: Did not!
  • Plaintiff: Did too!

In Taitz v. Colvin we have docket entries as follows on a Motion to Dismiss/Motion for Summary Judgment:

ECF # Date Description
28 1/30/2014 MOTION to Dismiss the Second Amended Complaint or, in the Alternative, for Summary Judgment by Carolyn Colvin Responses due by 2/18/2014 (Attachments: # 1 Memorandum of Law, # 2 Exhibit A, # 3 Exhibit B, # 4 Exhibit C, # 5 Exhibit D, # 6 Exhibit E)(Loucks, Allen) (Entered: 01/30/2014)
31 2/19/2014 RESPONSE in Opposition re 28 MOTION to Dismiss the Second Amended Complaint or, in the Alternative, for Summary Judgment filed by Orly Taitz. (Attachments: # 1 Exhibit 1, # 2Exhibit 2, # 3 Exhibit 3, # 4 Exhibit 4)(aos, Deputy Clerk) (Entered: 02/19/2014)
32 3/2/2014 REPLY to Response to Motion re 28 MOTION to Dismiss the Second Amended Complaint or, in the Alternative, for Summary Judgment and Response to Plaintiff’s Motion for Summary Judgment filed by Carolyn Colvin. (Attachments: # 1 Exhibit A, # 2 Exhibit B, # 3 Text of Proposed Order)(Loucks, Allen) (Entered: 03/02/2014)

 

So Defense’s Motion to Dismiss has been fully briefed.  Orly then files a “Reply in support of a motion for summary judgment in favor of plaintiff” only there was no such motion that I can find (however, see update below). Here’s how the court sees Orly’s last brief, in an entry docketed today indicating Taitz’ brief would be returned to her:

Update:

An attorney commenting on this article points out that Taitz had attempted to make a motion for summary judgment piggy backed on another motion (a practice the courts frown on and may disallow). I do not know the process through which the Court discovered what Taitz was trying to do, but later yesterday, the court docketed her brief.

Taitz in a new article today [link to Taitz web site] and speaking of herself in the third person, describes the appearance of the docket entry as “miraculous” and goes on to take attorney Scott Tepper and unnamed web sites to task for assassinating her character. So here’s the best I can do by way of apology:

Orly, what you did in filing your brief in Taitz v. Colvin was not completely inept as I first thought, but just procedurally confusing and contrary to best practices. You’ll still lose the case.

For everyone’s reading pleasure, here is the brief and the attached exhibits:

And now for something completely different:

I realize that targeted advertising doesn’t have any special significance, but tell me, is there some resemblance here?

Add showing fairy that looks like Taitz

    Taitz’s filings often have more than one action in them. Docket Entry 31 is a RESPONSE in Opposition re 28 MOTION to Dismiss and a Motion for Summary Judgment in favor of the Plaintiff. Here’s the link on her google docs (https://docs.google.com/gview?url=http://www.orlytaitzesq.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/Taitz-v-Colvin-MSJ-02.19.2014.pdf&chrome=true)

    Docket Entry 32 is the government’s REPLY to Response to Motion re 28 MOTION to Dismiss and an opposition to her motion for summary judgment. (http://www.scribd.com/doc/210208053/Taitz-v-Colvin-Opposition-to-Plaintiff-s-MSJ)

    The pile she filed this week is her reply to the government’s opposition to her motion for summary judgment.

    Taitz screwed this up by including more than one action in a single filing, something the person who made the docket entry didn’t pick up on. I believe she is entitled to the filing that the court rejected today.

    Though Taitz’s filings are usually a FUBAR, I tend to agree with THINKER on this one. She filed a dual motion and I think this is her reply to the defense’s opposition to that portion of her dual motion.

    Could be wrong as she’s hard to follow at times, but just sayin’.

    I’m not sure Taitz effectively filed a motion for summary judgment. (There are certain things required to go with such a motion. Taitz filed none of them. Good for the clerk not to be distracted.)

    I would deny her leave.

    I think this is another example of Taitz sternsigging her pleadings.

    At this point, if I were the court, I would not want to bother to figure out whether it is a response/reply/something new, or a mix of both. If she is in entitled to a reply, then file a proper reply. If the court cannot tell what it is, too bad Orly.

    Now, Mr Sterngard, where is your apology to Dr. zahnwalt Orly Taitz Esq. ?

    /quote
    While the documents were missing, Obama supporters on one of the blogs, which is a bull-pulpit for Obama’s personal attorney Scott J. Tepper, attacked Taitz mercilessly, assassinated her good character and called Taitz the worst lawyer and many other names, claiming that Taitz does not know how to file documents and pleadings. Now the order by Judge Hollander revealed that Taitz knows how to file and an error was made not by Taitz, but by the court itself and it was corrected by the court itself. Taitz does not hold her breath waiting for an apology from Obama supporters.

    The Dist of MD has a very specific procedure to follow when doing something like this (L. Rule 105.2.c, and their ECF manual at III.C.12). Another part of the problem, is Orly feels compelled to stuff a whole bunch of unnecessary carp into her titles. Had she simply titled her initial opposition as “Opposition to Motion to Dismiss, and Cross-Motion to Dismiss” the court would have probably caught what she was doing. Another big help to the court would be had Orly actually requested the ability file electronically, and followed the procedures to file a cross motion…but then again, this is Orly. She expects that she can half @ss everything, and everyone should be able to figure out what she intended to do, and just ignore all the rules she disregards. The woman can’t even be bothered to format a document properly, much less follow the rules of civil proceedure or local rules. She purports to have passed a state bar exam. There is no reason for the courts to go out of their way to accept and try to interpret the garbage she hoists on everyone.

    You’re certainly welcome to wait. And we all await the judge’s final ruling. That said, this is a simple FOIA case. Nothing more. There is no way in hell Orly gets the SS-5 of a living person. The SSN she links to “Bounel” is not “Bounel’s” SSN. In fact, there’s no showing that any Harry, Harry J., Harrison or Harrison J. Bounel even exists, much less that he was ever assigned a SSN.

    The SS-5 Orly is requesting is (or at least was) President Obama’s. She’s been told at least 10 times that it belongs to a living person. She’s too stupid to read (or is just being obtuse or engaging in her usual pathological lying) the affidavits and comprehend what they say.

    The only remaining issue here was if the agency did a proper search, according to the law. They have more than demonstrated that they did. They are not bound to search the paper records (if they still exist) but if the judge orders them to, fine. The result will be the same. She will not receive the SS-5 of a living person. And if the judge completely loses her mind and rules she can have it, it will most likely be immediately appealed and will be most likely be overturned.

    If I’m wrong I’ll come back and apologize. I don’t think I’ll have to.

    She doesn’t have a snowball’s chance in hell of winning. Orly (and others) misinterpreted the 1940 census. The Russian immigrant wasn’t named Harry Bounel. His name was Harry Boymel, and he didn’t have Obama’s SSN. His SSN was 080-18-6078 and was issued in 1941.

    http://www.obamaconspiracy.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/Boymel-SS5.pdf

    Since Harry Bounel’s real named was Harry Boymel, the SSA can’t possibly have a record of him as Harry Bounel. Do you understand now?

    Everything Orly Taitz submits in her lawsuits is deficient in some way, usually in many ways. In the case of the current filing, she has not properly redacted all the Social Security numbers. And the whole thing about a document being removed from the public docket is BS. It was never on the public docket. Taitz herself commented on it at the time it was filed (but not posted publicly):
    “it was not posted on the docket by the court and it is my understanding that SSA does not want it made public, at least this is my understanding from talking to the investigators”
    http://www.orlytaitzesq.com/?p=431178#comments
    Taitz’s claim that someone removed the document from the docket is demonstrably false. If Taitz really believes that the document was removed, then she has failed to diligently research the content of her brief. And if she realizes it was not removed, then she has lied in her brief. Most judges would skewer a real lawyer for this type of behavior. But Taitz gets away with it over and over again.

    Does this mean the judge is incompetent? I doubt it. I think it means the judge is pragmatic. She can see that Taitz is an incompetent lunatic and probably realizes that the quickest way to get to a final ruling is to let a lot of stuff slide, just as most judges have done.

    It’s a travesty of justice, in my opinion, to let Taitz continue to abuse the legal system with her nonsensical lawsuits. Unfortunately, I’m not a judge and can’t do anything about it except expose her lies and incompetence.

    The Truth: With all due respect to your comments, If Orly did not follow a statute with the laws of MD, or a procedures of the courts, the judge would not have allowed it to be entered. Should we then also assume the judge is incompetent?

    Here’s the actual title of her combined motion:
    Opposition to Motion to Dismiss or Summary Judgment for Defense and a Motion for Summary Judgment for the Plaintiff Due to Admission by the Defense that They Never Even Searched for SS-5 of Harry Bounel Which They Were Obligated to Search Under FOIA and the Record They Were Obligated to Provide Under 120 Year Rule; They Searched the Numident, Which is Not What Was Requested and Not What They Were Obligated to Do

    Is there a statute under the FOIA that states they are not bound to search for paper records? Are we to assume that every FOIA document ever released was only based on what was available in an electronic file? You are correct, it is basically just a FOIA issue in my opinion also, however, the law is the law. I have asked before, if it is just a matter of looking at archived paperwork, one would assume it should be somewhat organized and not to difficult to search for it. Why would the federal government not want to perform this search and instead choose to spend taxpayer money for attorneys and court costs, is it cheaper than a document search? I would assume that if Taitz did not have standing this would have been thrown out already, but, maybe that is what the judge is trying to decide on based on the available information.

    It has asolutely nothing to do with “standing”. It has to do with (as you continue to point out) the law. There is law and precedent setting out what is a proper and adequate search and what one is entitled to under FOIA.

    Yeah you actually are defending her. You want the government to bend over backwards to coddle her incompetence. She can’t file a FOIA normally why should they have to bend over backwards for her? The law doesn’t allow the abuse of the system which she seems content to.

    The Truth: Is there a statute under the FOIA that states they are not bound to search for paper records?

    The law says that the agency’s search must be reasonable. It need not be exhaustive, or the method preferred by the requester (or armchair pseudolawyers).

    In Taitz’s case, the SSA has submitted evidence of not only the search results (zip), but also its methodology. The judge will have no problem accepting the SSA’s evidence, and entering judgment in favor of the SSA.

    That you think you know the SSA’s business better than the SSA impresses no one (but perhaps yourself).

    Absolutely not. FIrst off, it’s Federal Court. Federal Courts will rarely boot pleading for messing up on technical errors of civil proceedure, particularly when a party is pro se (although Orly, as an attorney shouldn’t be given any slack). Secondly, it would be someone in the clerk’s office, not a judge making these calls, so your desire to label a federal judge is misplaced. Thirdly, Orly’s failure to comply with the rules wasn’t the sort that directly impacted that particular filing. The title of her document opened “Opposition to Motion to Dismiss,” followed by a paragraph of other fluff. Since it was a timely Opposition to a Motion to Dismiss, there would be no reason not to permit the document to be filed. Her failure to properly identify the cross-motion part of the filing is why the Goverment’s reply and Opposition to her Cross motion was only identified as a reply, and her reply to their Opposition was treated as a Sur-reply, requiring leave of court before filing. Again, you attempt to label our federal judges (or clerks) falls short.

    Ok, once again I will ask. Under the FOIA where does it state a paper search is not included. I must now also ask, what statue states that you cannot abuse the system? I see frivolous lawsuits every day. I have sat as a jurist twice when the state should have never indicted the defendant, it was a waste of time, the jury decisions where made in less than ten minutes on both cases (that includes juror instruction and the walking to and from the jury room), that could also be seen as abuse in my opinion. We have the court system for a reason, we may not all agree on its use but the law is the law.

    Actually, you have no proof it will rise tomorrow just an assumption based on historical fact, which by the way I tend to agree with, in my opinion it will rise tomorrow. The point is, before the judge has ruled I see no reason to accept the final outcome before it happens. If the judge rules in Taitz favor some comments here will be totally false presumptions leaving you the same predicament Taitz has put herself in with past claims. If you don’t like her that’s fine, but then why stoop to her level?

    The Truth: Ok, once again I will ask. Under the FOIA where does it state a paper search is not included. I must now also ask, what statue states that you cannot abuse the system? I see frivolous lawsuits every day. I have sat as a jurist twice when the state should have never indicted the defendant, it was a waste of time, the jury decisions where made in less than ten minutes on both cases (that includes juror instruction and the walking to and from the jury room), that could also be seen as abuse in my opinion. We have the court system for a reason, we may not all agree on its use but the law is the law.

    Read the Government’s filings…you know, the ones that actually cite law and cases. FOIA and the case law interpreting it makes it clear, once an agency has given their answer, either by providing documents, or saying none exist, the burden is on the requester to show the agency failed to make a reasonable search. That is all that is required of the government. Make a reasonable effort to locate documents. It doesn’t put any specific burden on the agency beyond making a “reasonable effort.” Neither does it give the requester the option of deciding how they want the search performed. SSA has a database of all the information. They searched the database and nothing matched the infor Orly asked for. End of story. And actually, the case law and recent amendments have actually pushed things to the database search side as not only be adequate, but the preferred methods.

Dec. 15, 1999) (finding that an agency is not required to conduct a physical search of records “if other computer-assisted search procedures available to [the] agency are more efficient and serve the same practical purpose of reviewing hard copies of documents”).

    The Truth: Actually, you have no proof it will rise tomorrow just an assumption based on historical fact, which by the way I tend to agree with, in my opinion it will rise tomorrow.

    Well, no proof except for accept science…but unlike the Orly winning a case, it is likely that some day in the distant future, the sun will go supernova, expand and consume the earth, thus resulting in some day the sun not rising.

    The Truth: The point is, before the judge has ruled I see no reason to accept the final outcome before it happens.

    Except that, as usual, Orly has no law to support her wild claims. Orly just wants, but has articulated no legal reason why she is entitled.

    The Truth: If the judge rules in Taitz favor some comments here will be totally false presumptions leaving you the same predicament Taitz has put herself in with past claims.

    The difference being is I have an understanding of the law, and base my conclusions on an examination of the relevant statutes and case law. Orly is just guano crazy. If by some chance the judge throws her a bone, I will be suprirsed, and will admit my errors.

    The Truth: If you don’t like her that’s fine, but then why stoop to her level?

    Again, my conclusions aren’t based on a dislike of Orly. They’re based on an actual examination of the law and facts. That is why, even on the very slight chance I am wrong, I will never stoop to Orly’s level.

    Sef: This is obviously not the case or there would never have been any birther cases as they have all been dismissed on procedural grounds.

    The Georgia case (“Taitz loses to an empty table”) went to trial. I’m pretty sure there is a single-digit number of others that have, too. I believe one in Indiana did, because there’s been whining abiut Irey’s limited acceptance as an expert witness. I hink that was also one where the judge ruled Obama is an NBC.

    Thinker:
    Here’s the government’s Memorandum in Support of Defendant’s Motion to Dismiss the Second Amended Complaint or, in the Alternative, for Summary Judgment. It tells you everything you need to know about the applicable case law and statutes related to Taitz’s request and why she will lose this case.
    http://ia600909.us.archive.org/8/items/gov.uscourts.mdd.244215/gov.uscourts.mdd.244215.28.1.pdf

    Taitz doesn’t understand how to plead a case. She usually doesn’t bother to address the actual arguments the defense presents because she’s always focused on her nonsensical conspiracy theories. This case is no different.

    I have read the document previously, but thank you for the link. It does state the SSA went electronic in 1980 (from my memory, which is getting worse with age). My contention is, if the person ever did exist, did the SSA enter in all information electronically for every person who ever received a SSN since the SSA system began? I do not know this answer maybe someone here does. I would find it unusual that the SSA would hand enter hundreds of millions of applications previous to 1980, I have no idea how many people that would be. In order to provide case precedence I would assume it would need to be based on a case that is relevant to the timeframe incurred in this case. In other words, if someone asked for FOIA for a document from say 1990, that would be a huge difference in relevance for an adequate search.

    The Truth: Thank you for updating the article. In your “apology” you stated she will still lose the case, I suggest we wait and find out what the judge rules before assuming again.

    You do realize that the so-called “missing document” ECF 7, which was not removed from the public docket but never was on the public docket, has zero, zip, nada relevance to the case at bar, right?

    It is related to the Original Complaint which is no longer the operative Complaint.

    The Truth: There is nothing to understand. All the SSA had to do was make a search of paper archives, verify her claims are false and be done with it. Unfortunately, the FOIA is misused at times but it is still the law. I am not defending Taitz, I am questioning the resistance to follow the law.

    The SSA has, as of 2008, issued more than 450 million Social Security Numbers. Do you really believe that “all the SSA had to do” is to examine 450 million paper records in an effort to find one which has the name “Harry Bounel” on it? Where would you suggest that they begin?

    The SSA, just like every other large organization, uses indexes to search for records. The Numident cross-references Social Security Numbers with names. They can enter a SSN and match it to a name, and they can enter a name and match it to a SSN. That is precisely what the SSA tried to do, and they found nothing which matches what Orly requested.

    Upon receiving Orly’s first FOIA request, which contained only Bounel’s name and Obama’s SSN, the SSA entered Obama’s SSN and saw that it matched his name. He is still alive, so they were prohibited by law from releasing any information to Orly.

    Orly’s second FOIA request added the following information:

    1. Bounel was an immigrant from Russia.

    2. Bounel was born in 1890.

    3. The year that Orly believed he entered the United States.

    4. The year that Orly believed he received his SSN (circa 1977).

    Orly, of course, made several mistakes. First of all, she made the mistake of assuming that Bounel was born in 1890 simply because the 1940 census says that he was 50 years old that the time. What she failed to consider is that the information on that page of the census was obtained on April 16, 1940; if Bounel’s birthday was April 17 or later in the year, he was born in 1889, not 1890. Second, she failed to comprehend that the census enumerator never spoke to Bounel; the enumerator obtained the information about Bounel from his landlady, who obviously did not know his date of birth and who clearly guessed at his age. Third, Orly failed to consider the possibility that the landlady and/or the enumerator misspelled Bounel’s surname. Fourth, Orly mistakenly believed that the particular page of the census was for 915 Daly Avenue in the Bronx – a non-existent address. That census page actually was for 915 Elsmere Place in the Bronx.

    Other records – including naturalization records, draft registration records, the 1920 census, and the SS-5 which I previously provided a link for, show that “Harry Bounel” really was Harry Boymel. Boymel was born in 1886 and was 53 years old at the time of the 1940 census; he was an immigrant from Russia; he was a fruit dealer; and he lived at 915 Elsmere Place in the Bronx.

    I am sure that even you would agree that it is impossible for the SSA to produce records which do not exist. “Harry Bounel” does not appear in the 1920 census or the 1930 census. There are no naturalization records for “Harry Bounel.” There is no record of “Harry Bounel” in the Social Security Death Index. There is no record of “Harry Bounel” ever registering for the draft. All of those records exist for Harry Boymel, but none exist for “Harry Bounel.”

    Orly will never get the SS-5 for “Harry Bounel” for the simple reason that he never existed. Since he never existed, Obama could not possibly be using his Social Security Number. Case closed.

    I am not familiar with the people on this blog. Perhaps you are an attorney, perhaps others are, at this point no one has claimed to be an attorney. I am not, which I am sure is obvious. I am trying to better understand this case, I do know from reviewing the files that an enormous amount of federal government money has been spent reviewing case precedence and statute as well as submitting the pleadings, and as a taxpayer I contribute to that cost so I am concerned. I agree that if Taitz claims are bogus it is a waste of my tax dollars but I am also a business owner so I question why the SSA didn’t just spend a fraction of the cost to look at paper files and be done with it. At that point if they find nothing then in my opinion as a taxpayer the government should be able to ask for a cost reimbursement to prevent future bogus claims, but that’s not our system. Perhaps the SSA should establish a $10,000 fee or some other amount so this feature is available in the future, at least for anything over 120 yrs old which is the now the requirement I believe. Oh to have a perfect world would be nice, of course then some of us would not have jobs ;)

    And you think if the SSA jumped through Taitz’s hoops that she still wouldn’t sue? How quaint.

    The SSA gets sued under FOIA all the time. This is just one case on one attorney’s desk. Think big, or continue you think you know how to manage the SSA’s business better than it.

Many people use the FOIA to do research and this case may create another precedence to overcome in future research.

This relates to something that is allegedly over 120 years old and should have no bearing on Obama.

    You haven’t been commenting here long and I don’t know if you’re new to site as a reader. If you are, then let me explain to you briefly what we know about Taitz’s FOIA with SSA. We have found, and it’s quite solid, that the Census record Taitz is searching for has the name wrong. The information for the Census was provided by a landlady, and not the person himself. His name is Boymel, not Bounel. There is no one named Bounel from that time period in SSA files because we have checked the Social Security Death Index, and places like Ancestry.com. On the other hand, we have made our own FOIA for Boymel and it was found handily, and of course he is also in the Death Index. We know his SSN and it’s nothing like Obama’s and it was issued long before Obama was born.

    As long as Orly asks for Bounel, she gets nothing. It doesn’t matter where they search–the record doesn’t exist.

    I cannot speak for Taitz, but I don’t think she would be willing to pay for a search of the physical records.

    The Truth: I am not questioning anything about Obama in this case, I understand that is the Taitz motive, but its not mine. Many people use the FOIA to do research and this case may create another precedence to overcome in future research.

    The Truth: Where did you arrive at that number, is that the official statement of the SSA?

    That’s a silly statement. You do understand that one can make informed guestimates? I know, it does require the ability to collect relevant data and so on, and I do understand that such novel concepts may not be high on your list but still, you need to understand that attacking the numbers is not really going to make things happen your way. The simple fact is that the SSA did what the law requires them to do. The thought that somehow they should go into their warehouses and search through any and all boxes that are relevant and perhaps not relevant seems rather outrageous. After all, it is easy to ‘misplace’ a document and Orly is not very clear about the search parameters.

    The case is simple: the SSN Orly believes to have been assigned to “Bounel” was not assigned to him, and the SSN that was assigned to the person who appears to be “Bounel” from her “research” was named Bornel [Boymel, Doc.] and his SSN does not match the one assigned to our President. One which he has been using since at least 1980 and which passes IRS scrutiny.

    Again, reason and logic do not permit a different interpretation of the facts. Orly filed a FOIA and the agency complied. She has exhausted her remedies. The judge will soon confirm this. It’s the logical action given what is known, and Orly’s “assertions” lack in foundation in law, or fact.

    A manual search is infeasible.

    I would expect the records are on microfilm. Microfilm can only be ordered one way, and the only ways I can think of that are reasonable are SSN order/range or accession date order.

    Taitz doesn’t know the SSN. We know from earlier responses that the SSN she gave in her FOIA was found by SSA and belongs to a living person (and that person is Obama). Searching paper records by number is pointless, since the record was already located in the index.

    The other possible ordering would be by accession date, but Taitz has no idea what the date of issuance of the record was. She THINKS that it was around 1977 and to be safe one would have to visually scan every SSN issued from 1976 to 1978. That’s not reasonable. It’s not only unreasonable, but pointless because the date on the record she wants is not between 1976 and 1978 in the first place.

    The only other way to find a microfilm record efficiently is by index, and we already know from SSA that it’s not in the index.

    Of course readers here know the SSN the date of Orly’s lodger in Census records: 080-18-6078, and the date of application was July 11, 1941.

    The Truth: So you are telling me the SSA has all the paper documents in a big pile in the shed out back? Since you have so much faith in the government why wouldn’t you conclude that it should be organized in an understandable fashion.

    Thank you for the respectable response, I know you have experience in records so I cannot refute your expertise. I would suspect then the judge might request a specific date and year to make any search feasible, that would be the only reasonable positive thing Taitz could expect in her case, and, in my opinion would be fair, if she cant provide it then its over.

    What specific date and year would you suggest? You can’t possibly believe that Social Security records are organized by date of birth, do you? The only other way to do it is by knowing the time frame during which a particular Social Security Number was issued. If “Harry Bounel” did exist, Orly has no idea when his SSN would have been issued. Theoretically it could have been anytime between 1936 and 1978. How long would it take to search through 32 years of paper files?

    When I ordered Harry Boymel’s SS-5, I provided the SSA with his name, date of birth, and SSN. They had no trouble finding his SS-5 through the Numident. It took them less than a month to respond.

    One thing to keep in mind about FOIA: Only basic FOIA requests that don’t take a lot of time and don’t return a lot of copies are free. Taitz would have to be willing to pay for a search that took a long time. I suppose SSA could give her an estimate.

    But let’s not lose sight of the fact that Orly Taitz is trying to prove that the 042 social-security number belongs to Bounel, and SSA has already said that it doesn’t because they found that record in their index and it belongs to a living person, not someone born 124 years ago.

    Bonsall Obot:

    You on the other hand… I stopped counting at EIGHT utter fabrications you made that were demolished by various posters here. You are really very, very bad at making a case.

    In that vein – As long as “The Truth” is posting in this thread, and the previous thread in which he was talking about Stanley Ann Dunham and Subuh has been closed, I figure that this is as good a place as any to summarize the debunking of his claims.

    Sometime in 1959, after the summer but while Mercer Island High School was in session. Dunham and a male friend named Bill Byers decided to make an impromptu trip by car to San Francisco. We know that it happened during the school year because another friend, John Hunt, was asked to go along but he refused in part because “They would get in trouble for cutting school” (“A Singular Woman” by Janny Scott, pp. 67-68). “The Truth” believes that Dunham was impregnated by Subuh during her time in San Francisco. His belief is easily debunked, if for no other reason than the incontrovertible fact that Subuh was not in San Francisco at any time after July 14, 1959.

    Subuh gave four talks in San Francisco during the summer of 1959. The first was on July 3 and the last was on July 13. He then gave five talks in Los Angeles, and by August 1 he was in Oslo, Norway. He remained in Europe until January, 1960, when he traveled from Greece to India. Subuh was nowhere near San Francisco when Dunham was there, so he could not possibly have impregnated her.

    http://www.subudstories.info/bapak/talks/talks.html

    “The Truth” has offered two fallback theories. One is his claim that Dunham “disappeared” shortly after she returned to Washington. But that isn’t true. “Whatever the case, sometime shortly after graduation in 1960, Stanley Ann vanished.” (“A Singular Woman” p. 71). Not only is “The Truth’s” time frame wrong, in context it is clear that she did not literally vanish. She was upset that her parents were moving to Hawaii and that her father would not let her attend the University of Chicago, and she reacted by cutting off contact with her high school friends. As her friend Maxine Box said, “She was upset that she had to move.” (“A Singular Woman” p. 71).

    The other fallback theory is that Dunham met Subuh in Chicago during the summer of 1959. President Obama has written that she told him that she worked as an au pair in Chicago that summer, and this is supported by her aunt, Arlene Payne, who has said that Dunham stayed with her for a time while Payne was doing graduate work at the University of Chicago (“A Singular Woman” p. 71). Subuh, meanwhile, gave three talks in Chicago in 1959. The first was on June 17 and the last was on June 25. He then was in Denver on June 30. The population of Chicago in 1959 was 3.5 million; the idea that Dunham would have met Subuh during the ten days or so that he was there is rather remote, even if she happened to be there at the same time (and “The Truth” has no idea what part of the summer she spent in Chicago). However, simple arithmetic tells us that Subuh could not possibly have impregnated Dunham while he was in Chicago. If she had conceived during the last week of June, she would have given birth in late March or early April of 1960, during her senior year in high school. None of her many high school friends who have been interviewed have any recollection of her being pregnant.

    “The Truth” then makes the evidence-free suggestion that Stanley Ann became involved in Subud during her time in Indonesia. In fact, Subud is mentioned only twice in “A Singular Woman” and Subuh is not mentioned at all. In 1970 Stanley Ann was recruiting teachers for the Ford Foundation. “A half-dozen of them [teachers] accepted her invitation, many of them members of an international spiritual organization, Subud” (“A Singular Woman” pp. 116-117). One of Stanley Ann’s many friends in Indonesia was Mohammad Mansur Medeiros, “a reclusive and scholarly Subud member from Fall River, Massachusetts” (“A Singular Woman” p. 121). Those are the only mentions of Subud in the book that I can find, and there is not even a suggestion that Stanley Ann ever joined the organization. The fact that she met a few members of Subud is hardly a dramatic or significant revelation.

    So much for “The Truth’s” so-called research.

I was attempting to learn the specifics of the case and the law interpretation to be better informed but it is now a parade of Obama propaganda supporters. I really see no need to continue here, between this site and the birther report site its hard to say which is worse on slander at a personal level of the poster.

    I don’t think one can appreciate Taitz outside of the context of her many cases. I’ve actually been in court when she was counsel. It was painful to watch. She often has cases dismissed for failure to follow the rules, and she was sanctioned by the courts three times.

    You asked Bob if he was a lawyer. I don’t know. There are several lawyers that post here, Sterngard Friegen is the only lawyer I see off hand commenting in this thread. We also have some private detectives, scientists, mathematicians, journalists and law students.

    I don’t know any way to deep dive Taitz’ legal misadventures quickly, but if you were to enter: Taitz lawsuit in the search box, you’d probably get the best you could at this site.

    I have read all the docs on this case. I am not an attorney so it is hard to understand some of the language. I would be the first to admit she rambles on in what seems to be irrelevant issues but I tried to get to the core of what she was asking for. It didn’t seem unreasonable for me to request a paper search, Dr C helped me to understand the actuality of what would be involved so I better understand the cost involved. I commented she should specify a specific item and date she is looking for, as well as pay for the search if it is beyond what would be normal. That’s where I am at but this thread is getting out of hand now.

    We tend to respect Doc’s pronouncements on vital records and searches… but it didn’t require Doc’s expertise to understand that searching hundreds of millions of paper records is unfeasible, IF they even EXIST in paper form any more. I defy you to count 10,000 of ANYTHING…. pennies, if you want…. without even having to look at the dates on them, much less a very specific name. That will take you DAYS. Then do it again… and again… and AGAIN… you will die of old age before you reach 100 million, let alone 450 million.

    Titles or even occupations are not nearly as important as facts. Sometimes, an expert is needed to interpret facts… but you have rejected the expertise of over a dozen cited experts in just the few days you’ve been here. In fact, taking Doc’s word this time is the FIRST time you’ve conceded that someone might know more about a topic than YOU do.

    The Taitz case that is most important to the current Colvin case is her 2011 Taitz v Astrue, in which the Social Security Administration said that she is not entitled to the SS-5 for the Social Security number that she believes Obama stole from someone named Harry Bounel because the person to whom that SSN belongs is still alive and the SS-5 is therefore exempted from disclosure under FOIA. She lost that case and it was upheld on appeal. If she were a competent, ethical lawyer, she would not have filed a second FOIA lawsuit seeking something that the courts have already determined she is not entitled to.

    It must tough being the smartest person on the planet.

    A freebie: If Taitz’s thought there was a problem with the SSA’s record-keeping system, it was her job to present the court with admissible evidence (which is not idle speculation in comment threads). She didn’t, so the court won’t worry itself with this imaginary problem.

    I would like to know, how are people here ever going to convert anyones beliefs with personal slander, all it does is piss people off.

    1. Point to one instance where you’ve been slandered. (I’ll note that you actually mean libeled, since slander is spoken (I KNOW THAT WITHOUT EVEN BEING A LAWYER OR FEDERAL JUDGE,) and libel is written, AND that “The Truth” is an absolute defense against a charge of libel. People have said a lot of things that may hurt your fee-fees, but they’re also TRUE things that hurt your fee-fees.)

    2. Who said anyone is here to convince anyone or change their minds? All we do is discuss facts; wise people change their OWN minds when confronted with facts.

    3. Most Important: what could anyone say to change your mind anyway? Your mind is made up; you said so yourself.

The issue is, I want the Taitz case to be successful so they look for it, if they don’t find it my theory is still intact, If by some freak deal they find Taitz is correct my theory is blown out of the water, of course that would make my case irrelevant at that point anyway.That is my interest in this case.

    Ah but that places the responsibility solely on the courts. However, before one takes on a ‘theory’ or better stated a ‘hypothesis’ one should do more than just adopt it. One should find ways to understand, explore, support it and then proceed to think about what would it take to rebut it and research these angles.

    The case is of limited interest really because it is based on a flawed premise. However at the simple FOIA level, the case also provides little support both for Orly’s claims, which are quite outrageous, but also at the level of legal success. If Orly gets to pay for a manual search and is willing to pay for it, then we will find out in a few months, or years that she was wrong again. There is just no logic to support her position, other than a spurious entry of a name Bounel in data which is infamously unreliable. You do know that the same data shows President obama’s birth date with day and month switched as well as a 1990 DOB. Once you understand how these online databases are created and vetted, do you understand why Orly’s is a foolish quest.

    President Obama has consistently used his SSN from as early as 1980 and there is NO evidence that the number ever belonged to anyone else. The search by the SSA further supports this, even though Orly has failed to understand the language used by the SSA to inform her of this. Now, in Orly’s defense, I have observed how Orly’s reading comprehension skills are quite poor.

    Given what we know, it is quite straightforward to make an informed prediction. I or we may be mistaken, that’s the nature of hypotheses, but the likelihood of such is quite small.

The federal attorney is just a random ‘victim’ who gets assigned to having to respond. I fail to see the logic in your arguments here.

    You also argued

    It does state the SSA went electronic in 1980 (from my memory, which is getting worse with age).

    Again, that is not exactly what the document said now is it?

    JPotter: Reading comprehension fail on page 9. Re-read the whole para. The gov’t stipulates that the Numident was fully electronic as of 1980, that is, records were no longer submitted via hardcopy. No reason at all to get the impression the SSA began computerizing in 1980.

    Common sense alone should suggest otherwise. From the beginning of SS, managing the information by manual means was out of the question.

    Ok, so exactly what is the definition of electronic in the document. Link or evidence please.

    Mommy’s Special Snowlake Fails Reading Comprehension:

    As I have been told here many many times here, read the links provided, it is in this thread. As you would say, why should I do the work for you.

    As an act of kindness which is seldom found here, this is the link. It is at the bottom of page 9

    http://www.scribd.com/doc/210208053/Taitz-v-Colvin-Opposition-to-Plaintiff-s-MSJ

    For the record, pumpkin, I had no way of knowing which of thousands of documents you were referring to until you so kindly provided that link…

    … which, SURPRISE, does NOT say what you claimed it did.

    YOU said

    Mommy’s Special Snowflake:

    The SSA started the electronic system in 1980.

    But the document you so kindly linked to says “The Numident became
    fully electronic in the 1980s (i.e., it includes older records that were submitted in hardcopy).

    Do you understand that there is a difference between when a thing begins, and when it ends? No, you do not. Because you are not very bright.

    By the way, the rest of that document explains very goddamn clearly why Taitz is going to lose yet another case; as has been explained to you, all reasonable efforts have been made to find what she’s looking for, yet doesn’t exist. A judge ruled so, and was upheld on appeal.

    While I point and laugh at your failure, I thank you for your kindness.

    nbc: You do understand the burden of proof? Orly brings a complaint and it helps to understand the history of her filings before one jumps onto the case. The research involved is pretty trivial. The federal attorney is just a random ‘victim’ who gets assigned to having to respond. I fail to see the logic in your arguments here. Do you disagree that if you had properly done your research, you would not be where you are right now?

    No, I am interested in the outcome, as I mentioned I want them to look and I hope they find nothing. I have NEVER stated Obama’s SSN was a stolen number. I don’t care if Taitz wears a pink polka dot bikini in court with a whirly bird hat on her head, that is irrelevant to me. I must admit though, now that I have seen more of her past I have my doubts, maybe I will get lucky.

    The Truth: Its not my case, it belongs to Taitz so you will need to ask her

    So let’s limit it to 1977, the year when Orly believes that a Social Security Number was issued to Bounel. There were approximately 7 million SSNs issued that year. Do you seriously believe that a hand search of 7 million records is feasible? If a Social Security employee examined a record every ten seconds, eight hours a day, 365 days a year, it would take more than 6 1/2 years to examine 7 millions records. Obama will be three years into his retirement by then.

    Really? That is hard to reconcile with other things you have said but I will take your word for it. If you are interested in the outcome, it is even more important to understand the foundation of the case, as well as its history. If it is all about getting “lucky” then you must be used to disappointments? Understanding Orly, the history of the case, her ‘arguments’ and the response by the Government, combined with FOIA precedents, should have helped you understand that ‘getting lucky’ in this case would have to overcome the laws of probability in this universe.

    They looked and found nothing, although Orly believe that they did. A manual search is just logically infeasible and Orly would never be willing to pay for this. 1980 saw about 5-7 million SSN applications and since the date is uncertain, Orly would want to include 1981 as well. Do the math.

    You’re rooting for Orly to win, aren’t you? There is a reason why the sports section of a newspaper lists the records of the starting pitchers for baseball games – it gives an informed reader some insight into which team is likely to win.

    Orly has lost every birther case she has filed, she was severely sanctioned for misconduct in one, and she is likely to be sanctioned in another. Would you bet on a baseball pitcher who has lost every game he has started?

    The Truth: Then explain to me how they searched for one back then? Your numbers are bogus. Provide me a SSA statement showing that figure.

    They already did the search which is the electronic variant of how they would do it in those days. There is a master record and there were cross references that allowed on the index the data. These data all have been transferred to an electronic format but the basic principle is the same. Are you saying that they should look at the index again? Or do you want them to look for misfiled or erroneous SS-5 entries which requires them to process each entry. I provided you with links

    The first group of employees keyed information from the SS-5 into a master punch card for each individual. A tabulating machine used this master punch card to set up a numerical register of accounts stored in huge loose-leaf books. These volumes contained the SSN, name, and date of birth of each number holder. Each page contained 100 SSNs in numerical order. From these volumes, employees could learn the name and identifying information of an SSN’s owner in a fraction of the time that would be required to locate the master punch card (Wyatt and Wandel 1937, 120–121). The master punch card was also used in the earnings-posting operation to establish an earnings ledger for each individual.

    Then read on as to how they cross referenced from names.

    The SSA issued 6.4 millions SSNs in 1971. It issued 5.9 million SSNs in 1967. From that I estimated that “approximately 7 million” were issued in 1977. The numbers began to spike in 1962, when the first post-war baby boomers reached the age of 16.

    Ah, but is that true… I am afraid to ask you for supporting data… And before you just quote another website, do the proper research first.

    Unemployment is down, stock market is up, gays are finally accepted to serve our country, health insurance reform was successfully passed. And that with a mostly unwilling congress who was intent to not give him a single success… Deficit is down, spending is down, consumer confidence is up.

    But the outlook has changed dramatically in just 4 years. And it has been a boon for investors, as even the safest indices have yielded a 250% return (>25% annualized compound return:)

    and

    Today the Congressional Budget Office is reporting a $200B decrease in the deficit almost entirely due to increased revenue from a growing economy and higher taxes on the wealthiest Americans. The deficit is now only 4% of the GDP, down from over 10% at the end of Bush’s administration – and projections are for it to be only 2% by 2015 (before Obama leaves office.) America’s “debt problem” seems largely solved, and almost all due to growth rather than austerity.

    Blatant mischaracterization of the case in latest birther report article, leaving one to wonder whether it was the author or Taitz’s fault:

    “In an interview last week with Freedom Outpost, Mrs. Taitz told us that she was still waiting to hear from the courts Washington, D.C. and Maryland. “I did have a favorable decision from Judge Ellen Lipton Hollander in Maryland, where she denied the motion to dismiss by the defense. They wanted a summary judgment ruling that there is no social security number… this Harry Bounel, that Obama is using his social security number.”

    “The judge said ‘No, you did not do a proper search,’ and she refused to give them the summary judgment,” Taitz said.”

    Sheesh, the court granted the motion to dismiss but gave Taitz leave to file a seconded amended complaint if Taitz wanted to allege an improper search. The court has made absolutely no finding that there was a failure to do a proper search.

    Darn, I missed the whole thing. If you are still reading, Mr. Truth, I have some advice for posting and getting real information on Doc’s blog: Ignore the posts that are merely insulting. Don’t answer at all. If a poster gives you information surrounded by insults, address the information. Don’t snark back.

    I sense you aren’t one of the many trolls we do get here that look for such treatment. Also, not all of us are sitting here all day waiting to pounce. Some of us politer, more serious folks only come once a day or so.

    That said, pretty much anyone following the docket in this case knows that it will be dismissed. Orly is clearly looking for a non-existent person. The only place this name ever existed was a single entry in a single database search. The database was one used by skip-tracers and shows names associated with the target. In other parts of the report, Barack Obama is listed with Michelle Obama’s SSN. That’s because his SSN appears with her name (as well as his) on bank accounts, leases, mortgages.

    Doc did a great article on this already, here: http://www.obamaconspiracy.org/2013/12/who-or-why-or-which-or-what-is-harrison-j-bounel/

    No other trace of the name Harrison J. Bounel has ever appear anywhere else (except in commentary about this database entry), even with both birthers and obots looking for 3 years. That says to the reasonable person that the entry was bad data.

    The Truth: that he is the worst president in history?

    That’s a little hyperbolic, don’t you think? Worse than Harding, Buchanan, Andrew Johnson? I’d ask you for specific examples of what makes him the “worst in history” in your mind, but first, that would take us off topic and second, I have no hope whatsoever that you would provide anything that would be of any substantive interest.

    So yes, even this post is too far off topic, but I bring it up anyway because you should realize that when you say something like that, it’s clear to any listener that your concept of “history” doesn’t extend back very far at all. To say that it goes back even as far as 2009 would be overly generous.

    That kind of shortsightedness tends to be extrapolated by your listeners to imply an overall laxity in any kind of rigorous thought, and this is part of the reason, but by no means the only reason, why your posts are met with ridicule.

    The key reason, of course, is that you clearly have done no research before throwing up the usual half-baked birther mantras. We’re looking for something new, and you’re just not delivering.

    If you want to be taken seriously, you should say serious things.
