Notes from the infectious disease ward

UPDATE: Orly’s site is entirely down now. [5 PM EDT, 2 July 2014]

UPDATE 2: It’s back up.

This the third day since Google again identified OrlyTaitzESQ.com as an attack site, passing on malware to visitors. I take such warnings more seriously than I used to. Here’s a taste of what’s going on at the Taitz web site obtained through the browser on my phone.

Taitz continues to focus on immigration issues with this headline yesterday:

  • Response from Attorney Orly Taitz to Obama’s today’s speech: our immigration system is not broken, the only thing that is broken, is the path of neuron connections in Obama’s brain. Obama did not need to dispatch Biden to Central America to search for the cause of the problem, he had to dispatch himself to the nearest mirror

Taitz is praying for more Republicans to drive drunk in this item about Pete Perry who was quoted on this blog yesterday. The title of the article is:

  • As some of you may be aware by now, Hinds County GOP chair Pete Perry, a man that many believe is behind the shenanigans on June 24, was arrested for speeding and drunk driving this past Saturday night. Here is his mugshot. Hopefully there will be more pics like this in the future! We can only pray!

 

In another Mississippi McDaniel/Cochran story cut and pasted in its entirety from the Jackson, Mississippi, Clarion-Ledger, Taitz headlines:

  • Mark Mayfield family to sue the police of an unprecedented abuse of power

Tea Party leader Mayfield committed suicide subsequent to being arrested for conspiracy along with two others. The Clarion-Ledger reported:

Authorities say the vice chairman of the Mississippi Tea Party and two other men conspired with Clayton Kelly to photograph U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran’s bedridden wife in her nursing home and create a political video against Cochran.

The Mayfield family wants police charged with trespassing for entering the Mayfield home to confirm a report of his suicide.

Next Taitz focuses on a local scandal:

  • CA rocked by another corruption scandal. Top officials in CalPERS, largest public employee public fund engaged in conspiracy to commit fraud, fabricate documents

Taitz then has an article with no title, but a link to an article at Gateway Pundit:

  • Thad Cochran Campaign Manager Busted In Vote Buying  Scheme

The Gateway Pundit title is misleading to me. I understood the word “busted” to a raid by police, or an arrest. In this case, it’s nothing more than an allegation by a private individual (who was paid for his story according to Breitbart News) who claims he was offered money to deliver votes for Cochran, complaining because he says he was never paid. Upon closer examination, this claim seems problematic. The quote from Rev. Fielder is that his efforts brought “hundreds or even thousands” of black Democratic voters to the polls. If he actually expected to get paid for these votes, he would reasonably know exactly how many he was to be paid for, not fumbling over the order of magnitude. Also, the news outlet, GotNews.com, that paid Fielder is run by Charles C. Johnson, and the video was produced by collaborator Joel Gilbert, the same fellow that made the anti-Obama videos falsely claiming Obama’s mother made pornographic photos. The pair also reported a dubious story that Corey Booker, mayor of Newark, never lived in Newark. Johnson wrote claims that Barack Obama must have been an Indonesian citizen.

Taitz skewers two for one in her title:

  • Muslim barber refuses to cut hair of lesbian: whose rights trump whose? – Liberty Unyielding

Still waiting for something birther, and disappointed, I find another link to Gateway Pundit:

  • SHOCK REPORT: US Power Plants Under Cyber Attack from Russia

No right-wing web site would be complete without something on global warming. Taitz doesn’t understand climate variation, drawing this unwarranted conclusion:

  • Global warming is proven to be a total fraud and a Ponzi scheme. No global warming for the past 17 years. NOAA Quietly Reinstates July 1936 as Hottest Month on Record.

Dan O’Donnell says:

It’s kind of amazing how easily “settled science” can be changed, isn’t it?

NOAA has been making adjustments to climate data to account for temperature measurements being made at different times during the day in different years. 1936 was during the American “Dust Bowl” and it is believed that the record temperatures are made worse by the lack of vegetation.

Taitz, in a move to deprive her fellow attorneys of their livelihood titles:

  • We need an immediate hearing by the House of Represntaives, we need statistics: how many illegals were caught crossing the US border in 2013 and first half of 2014 and how many were deported or remved by the border patrol. We need 130,000, who crossed in the past 9 months, to be removed by the border patrol without any court hearing and sent back to Mexico. We have 42 million illegals, at a current rate of 409,849 per year it will take a 201 years to deport them, meanwhile by virtue of natural population growth the number of offspring of illegals will double or triple this number

The 42 million number is far outside the range of estimates typically seen. The Center for Immigration Studies put the number at 11 million, down from 12.5 million estimated for 2007. DHS puts the number at 11.4. Taitz’ number of annual illegal entries into the US is, however, not out of line, but she fails to note that the number is less than half what it was in 2000. In 2012 the Obama administration spent 18 billion dollars on immigration enforcement programs; more than the budget for all other federal law enforcement agencies that year combined. [Source: Wikipedia]

Taitz, no star performer before the US Supreme Court, cites USA Today in this title:

  • In spite of a few positive decisions in the last week or so, Supreme Court hits new low: only 30% have confidence in justices. Prior unconstitutional decisions by the Supreme court in upholding Obamacare, in turning the whole nation into slaves by overrighting the state laws defining marriage and refusal to deal with Obama’s lack of legitimacy to presidency no doubt affect rejection of the Supreme Court by 70% of the population.

The Gallup poll cited by USA Today puts confidence in Obama at 29% confidence and Congress at 7%. :shock:

And finally, so that we have some Obama conspiracy for the day:

  • War: Obama Classmate flays Obama; He’s a Manchurian Candidate, lied to everybody

That’s a link to Birther Report and the Wayne Allyn Root video. Note that BR classifies Root as a “non-birther.”

    In the back of my mind, I kept thinking that sometime in the past someone had already used my title, “Notes from the infectious disease ward” to talk about Orly Taitz. It turns out that it was me in 2009. :oops:

    I’m not sure exactly how this title became a part of my memory. It might be a synthesis of Dostoevsky’s novella “Notes from Underground” and Solzhenitsyn’s book “Cancer Ward.”

    The last time I posted a comment on Orly’s website she accused me of slander and posted my IP address.

    The comment was:

    “Your moral compass is apparently broken” and never made it through moderation.

    The byline on the original story (from http://www.gotnews.com) about the guy who says Cochran’s campaign bribed voters names two very, very birther-friendly guys as the authors. One is Joel Gilbert, of “Dreams from my Real Father” infamy, and the other is Chuck Johnson, who has said that he has proof that Barack Obama became an Indonesian citizen. Two slimy and completely non-credible ‘journalists.’

    I read the Clarion-Ledger article yesterday and couldn’t help but think of birtherism:
    .
    .
    Mayfield’s friends and family have also accused Madison police of being heavy-handed during his arrest in May.

    (Mayfield’s brother-in-law, attorney John) Reeves said: “The Madison Police Department sent six police officers down there (to Mayfield’s office), flung open the door, scared the secretary, guns out and they cuffed him, put him in a holding tank … They treated him like a criminal.”

    There have been news and social media reports that Madison police sent a “SWAT team” to arrest Mayfield.

    But Sanders said only an investigator, a warrants officer and a Hinds County deputy went to arrest Mayfield, and it happened without incident and no guns drawn.

    “When they arrived, Mr. Mayfield was not even at his office,” Sanders said. “They spoke with Mr. Mayfield’s receptionist as she came off the elevator. They spoke with Mr. Mayfield, who was down the road, and waited for him to arrive. He arrived, gave some paperwork to his receptionist, and they stepped into his office to discuss what was going on.

    “He was completely cooperative and left with them,” Sanders said. “Now, it’s likely they did use handcuffs … At no time were any weapons drawn. There was no SWAT team, nor was any SWAT team on standby at any time.”
    .
    .

    So a plain-clothes investigator and two uniformed officers effect an uneventful arrest of a cooperating suspect and somehow it becomes a SWAT team of six officers busting in with guns drawn… and a presumably respected attorney is not just repeating this but planning to go to court about it…

    Or, perhaps “infectious disease ward” is the perfect metaphor, so why mess with perfection? What else are ya gonna call it? The Good Ship Lollipop?

    Though I s’pose you could say there’s an imperfection in the metaphor, since in a real infectious disease ward some actual healing could be expected.

    The songwriter’s worst nightmare is having that nagging sense of familiarity with your latest creation turn into the realization that you didn’t come up with something new at all– you just remembered something old. It’s not nearly so bad when it’s your OWN something old.

    Silly me. I used to think that the SCOTUS was the final arbiter on what is or isn’t constitutional. If they say it is, then it is. For example, as heinous as the Dredd Scott decision was, it was the law of the land until they changed the Constitution via a Constitutional Amendment.

    What is your point? The “people” understood the Scott decision was a bad decision and complained that the Supremes got it wrong too. Thus the amendment (which fixed TWO bad SCOTUS decisions). Are you saying that SCOTUS decisions cannot be controversial.

    I had to scroll back myself; I believe faceman was referring to Taitz’ claim about “(p)rior unconstitutional decisions by the Supreme court in upholding Obamacare, in turning the whole nation into slaves by overrighting the state laws defining marriage and refusal to deal with Obama’s lack of legitimacy to presidency…”

    Point being, the Court can decide something wrongly, or controversially, or unpopularly, but cannot, by definition, decide something unconstitutionally, since they are the arbiters.

    Judicial Review wasn’t spelled out succinctly in the Constitution because the founders knew that the highest court would abuse it, I believe. Perhaps they should have spelled it out and made it unconstitutional to go beyond precedent.

    Bonsall Obot July 3, 2014 at 4:40 am #

    Perhaps. But they didnt, and judicial review is pretty ironclad at this late date. It’s silly of Taitz to refer to “unconstitutional decisions by the Supreme (C)ourt.”

    bgansel9: Judicial Review wasn’t spelled out succinctly in the Constitution because the founders knew that the highest court would abuse it, I believe

    I thought “all Cases, in Law and Equity” was pretty succinct.

    Question for the lawyers: doesn’t the definition of “cases in law” specifically include ruling on issues like whether a statute includes “merely pointing a gun at someone, without actually shooting” when it says “taking by force”, or what the Constitution means by “cruel” punishment?

    Doc, this is a question, not in any way a challenge:

    In just the last couple of weeks, Taitz has advocated armed revolution and the kidnapping of brown children, caused further unnecessary costs and delays in the courts, and jeopardized untold numbers of computers with her malware-infested website.

    What’s it going to take to earn her a transfer from The Bad to The Ugly?

    Dr. Conspiracy July 3, 2014 at 12:34 pm #

    “Bad” is sort of the default category for a birther site. None of them is particularly nice. “Ugly” is usually assigned to a site that I judge lies intentionally.

    I don’t disagree that Taitz has been pretty “ugly” of late (and before that). Maybe I’ll move her over someday. Dunno.

    faceman July 3, 2014 at 1:43 pm #

    Bonsall – that was exactly my point. I forget what the original case was, but Brown v Board of Education revisited an earlier decision and declared ‘separate but equal’ was not constitutional. And as I said, a constitutional amendment was passed to nullify Dredd Scott. The point, as you said, was that the Supreme Court gets to decide what is, or isn’t, constitutional. It may not have been explicitly spelled out in the Constitution, but that’s the way the legal system works. Except for cases where they have original jurisdiction, as specified in the Constitution, they usually don’t get involved in cases where either different district courts have ruled differently from each other (one appellate court has ruled some is OK, and another has ruled it is not), or if there is serious concern that a law violates the Constitution. In either case, they are settling the dispute as to whether something is constitutional.

    The case that Brown v. Board of Education overruled was a case by the name of Plessy v. Fergueson.
