    Reading between the lines (that is, ex-con Judy’s unreliable narration), it sounds like the judge didn’t promptly kick ex-con Judy out because the court needed some time to consider ex-con Judy’s “miracle” document. Upon consideration, the court has now decided that ex-con Judy’s miracle document didn’t have the power to stop an eviction.

    “America’s Toughest Sheriff”™ is a groveling coward without that badge to hide behind. Its gratifying to see such a wicked person getting their just desserts. Even if he doesn’t see a single day of jail time, no one will remember him as a tough guy after this trial.

    A continued thought on my last post:
    That’s really what its all about for guys like Arpaio: Image is everything. I’d wager its not the six months in jail that scares him, so much as he’ll have “Convicted felon” as a legacy. To someone who sees themselves a real-life lawman from a John Wayne movie, that’s a fate worse than death.

    Then you have the other side of the coin, Judy. To whom image means nothing. He doesn’t care that people are going to remember him as a complete kook. Just so long as he’s got, in his mind at least, the slimmest chance of the smallest legal victory, then its all worth it. He strikes me as someone who would show up to court dressed as a baseball mascot, speaking in only dated fast-food slogans, if he thought it would help his case. And Judy, if you’re reading this from your neighbor’s couch, it just might so give it a go! *wink*

    Arpaio is being tried for a misdemeanor, not a felony. But any conviction would be tough for Arpaio to accept.

    [Given that the certificate was in a bound volume, I find this highly unlikely. Doc.]

    From FOX News:

    More than a month before Donald Trump began his media blitzkrieg over the issue of President Obama’s birth certificate, the document was quietly moved to a more secure location within a dual combination-key lock safe inside the state’s health department vault.

    The certificate was moved there by Alvin Onaka, Hawaii’s State Registrar, in response to what had already become an increasing number of media requests by FoxNews.com and others, according to sources.

    “It is my understanding that the book has been placed in a smaller locked container in the same secure safe,” Chiyome Fukino, who served as Hawaii’s health department director for eight years until last December, told FoxNews.com in late February. “The safe is still in the department.”

    Fukino and others claim the additional security measure reduces the number of people with access to the much-sought-after document from a handful to just one: Onaka himself.

    [skip]

    “After the 2008 elections, the Department of Health received a significant number of requests for a copy of President Obama’s original birth registration by individuals who believe that the president is not a U.S. citizen,” Fukino explained. “To assure the safety of the record, the bound volume was removed from the file vault and placed into a fireproof safe with limited access.”

    Fukino was ordered by then-governor Linda Lingle to view the document in 2008, and said she remains among the very few to have seen it prior to Monday, when Obama released a copy of his records to the public.

    Obama’s original certificate of live birth is bound with one ledger containing 499 other certificates of people born in Hawaii in 1961, according to Fukino. There are 500 sheets per book, and 35 volumes of 1961 birth records. The last series of digits in the registration number found on Hawaiian long form and current computerized-format birth certificates indicate which number volume the original document can be found inside the health department first-floor vault.

    According to Fukino, all books bound in the 1960s, including the one containing Obama’s birth certificate, have a bright orange elasticized canvas cover and the year of the birth designated on its spine.

    Is it true that you murdered Georgette Bauerdorf? And Elizabeth Short as well? I’ve heard that rumor from a normally VERY reliable source.

    And we do have your digitally-signed confession that places you in the exact same geographical area and social circle as Georgette’s murderer – at the exact same time – and also your confession that you were still in California at the time of Elizabeth’s murder, too.

    Here’s a fun tidbit!

    Judge Derrick Watson last night issued another order striking down parts of the latest version of the Trump Muslim ban (http://apps.washingtonpost.com/g/documents/politics/hawaii-ruling/2500/).

    On p. 15, he writes:

    “Equally problematic, the Government’s definition represents the antithesis of common sense. Common sense, for instance, dictates that close family members be defined to include grandparents. Indeed, grandparents are the epitome of close family members. The Government’s definition excludes them. That simply cannot be. See generally Klayman v. Obama, 142 F. Supp. 3d 172, 188 (D.D.C. 2015) (noting that courts should not ‘abandon all common sense’ when considering injunctive relief).”

    —-
    Oh yes, and the connections keep unfolding.

    My new hero is the late Sergei Magnitsky, a competent and dedicated attorney who had the courage even to endure physical torture rather than flip on his client and his cause. The Russians essentially tortured him to death, because he never caved under the pressure. Any lawyers worth their salt should think about this and feel humbled by Magnitsky’s courage and fortitude to do his job without compromising himself and his duty.

    Meanwhile, Attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya is making a career of besmirching the name and work of Magnitsky. She gets paid to try to get the Americans to strike the Magnitsky Act, so the people who got rich by robbing Magnitsky’s client and killing Magnitsky can launder that money in peace and without sanctions. Until then, Putin won’t let Americans adopt those white Russian babies they like so much.

    Sounds to me like the Russian government was offering white babies and dirt on HIllary, in exchange for Republicans dropping sanctions and letting that dirty blood money flow.

    After Tiffany does two years at Georgetown Law, I’d like to ask her this question:

    “Choose one. Who is the better and truer lawyer — Sergei Magnitsky or Natalia Veselnitskaya?”

    I have hope for Tiffany yet. We shall see. Her father treats her like crap and a pregnancy that shouldn’t have happened. Maybe she will turn into the complete bane of her father’s existence, i.e., a lawyer who pursues real justice. Maybe not. This choice will be hers.

    In Judy’s latest diatribe he fantasizes that corporate donors to the Obama library will have egg on their faces if he win his appeal.

    What he doesn’t realize is that even if he were to win his appeal, the only relief that the Court of Appeals could grant is to send the case back to the trial court, where he has yet to establish that the defendants were properly served.

    But of course his appeal is doomed because he doesn’t have a clue. About anything.

    Notorial Dissent July 17, 2017 at 3:43 am #

    More to the point, his appeal is/was doomed, since 1) it is over a matter that is already far too long dead and buried, 2)it isn’t really an appeal to start with, 3)it was all word salad and totally incomprehensible, and 4) like all his previous efforts he didn’t actually appeal anything having to do with any of his previous total gibberish filings, so double DOA.

    The Appeals court would first have to be able to make some semblance of sense out of his word salad in order to even be able to guess at what he was going on about, and I think that is more than they will be able to do. So they will ultimately reject it for gibberish content.

    I can’t remember now, did he ever pay the filing fee or did he finally get IFP?

    The Appeals Court, anticipating your question, provided an answer.

    07/14/2017 [10482840] Order filed by Judges Briscoe, Hartz and Bacharach denying Appellant’s motion for leave to proceed in forma pauperis filed by Mr. Cody Robert Judy. Appellant must pay the filing and docketing fees to the Clerk of the District Court. If Appellant fails to make timely payment, the Clerk shall dismiss the appeal for failure to prosecute. See 10th Cir. R. 3.3(B)(1), 42.1. Fee is due by 08/03/2017 for Cody Robert Judy. Served on 07/14/2017. [17-4055] [Entered: 07/14/2017 04:08 PM]

    “Cody Robert Judy appeals the district court’s denial of his motion for relief from
    judgment and a later motion for reconsideration. Because Mr. Judy’s appeal is frivolous, we deny his motion to proceed in forma pauperis and decline to consider the issue further unless and until Mr. Judy pays the required fees.”

    Notorial Dissent:
    More to the point, his appeal is/was doomed, since 1) it is over a matter that is already far too long dead and buried, 2)it isn’t really an appeal to start with, 3)it was all word salad and totally incomprehensible, and 4) like all his previous efforts he didn’t actually appeal anything having to do with any of his previous total gibberish filings, so double DOA.

    As he was told multiple times, none of his appeals addressed the primary reason his case was dismissed in the first place, namely the failure to state a claim for which relief could be granted. He framed his lawsuit as a tort and he was asking for monetary damages, which he wouldn’t have been entitled to even if his factual claims happened to be true.

    “TENTH CIRCUIT APPEALS DECISION on Judy v. Obama Check it out: In some ways it means Justice is only for sale. Proving my income was below the Federal Poverty level, and continuing to order fees paid in the face of so much lawful evidence suggest this.Further, the District Court ruled in the affirmative for my Motion for IFP. The suggestion by the Court reflects justice might be “For Sale” and certainly amplifies the poor are discriminated against in the Court.”

    Judy quickly blocks anyone who tries to educate him about his frivolous case. Rickey posted the text above. Judy just doesn’t get it that an IFP application is not approved merely based on need. One has to have a serious case too. The district court probably granted his IFP based on expediency then quickly tossed his frivolous motion to reopen the case.

    Of course Judy might actually understand all this and is just lying.

    I had a brief exchange with him on Facebook. I pointed out that he was denied IFP status because his appeal was deemed to be frivolous, not because of his financial condition. Then he wanted to know why they gave him a deadline to pay $400. So I told him that they are giving him a choice – he can pay the $400 and have his appeal denied because it is frivolous, or he can refuse to pay and have it denied for failure to prosecute. Either way he loses, of course.

    http://www.thepostemail.com/2017/07/17/appellate-court-says-obama-eligibilityforgery-plaintiff-must-now-pay-court-fees-proceed/

    I posted the following comment, which probably won’t make it through moderation:
    .
    The fact that the District Court granted IFP status is irrelevant. Rule 24 (a)(3)(A), Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure, applies to appellants who were granted IFP status by the District Court:

    Rule 24. Proceeding in Forma Pauperis
    (a)(3) Prior Approval. A party who was permitted to proceed in forma pauperis
    in the district-court action, or who was determined to be financially unable to
    obtain an adequate defense in a criminal case, may proceed on appeal in forma
    pauperis without further authorization, unless:
    (A) the district court – before or after the notice of appeal is filed –
    certifies that the appeal is not taken in good faith or finds that the party is
    not otherwise entitled to proceed in forma pauperis and states in writing its
    reasons for the certification or finding.

    Judy’s appeal was found to be frivolous in part because he never addressed the reasons why his lawsuit was dismissed in the first place.

    Cody, I know you still read here. It is quite clear from the order. If you pay the filing fee, they will dismiss the case as frivolous.

    Despite what “evidence” you claim to have, your case is asking for something the court cannot give. This was explained to you and you ignored it. They have warned you that if you pay the filing fee, your case will be dismissed. Now may be a good time to listen to what they are saying.

    If ex-con Judy doesn’t pay, the 10th will dismiss for failure to prosecute, and he’ll be able to complain to SCOTUS about the 10th saying he was not entitled to IFP status due his appeal being frivolous.

    If, however, ex-con Judy does pay, the 10th will affirm the district court’s denials, and he’ll be able to complain about the 10th’s inevitable ruling that his appeal was frivolous.

    Ex-con Judy’s a predictable creature: he’ll not pay and take the failure-to-prosecute dismissal (while pocketing any donations he may have received). His inevitable SCOTUS petition will imagine a war on the poor. Once that is denied, he’ll again play the martyr.

    This comment, astonishingly, made it through moderation at P&E:

    It’s obvious that the people commenting here don’t understand why Judy’s lawsuit was dismissed and why it has been found to be frivolous. The dismissal has NOTHING to do with Obama’s birth certificate.

    Judy filed a civil lawsuit asking for money damages under 42 U.S.C. § 1983, the Sherman Anti-Trust Act, and the Clayton Act. In 2014 District Court Judge Stewart ruled “After carefully reviewing Plaintiff’s Complaint, the Court finds that Plaintiff’s suit is frivolous. Plaintiff’s claims lack an arguable basis in law or fact…” In other words, Judge Stewart was saying that Judy failed to state a claim which is legally recognized under the statutes he cited in his lawsuit. Judy appealed and the Court of Appeals affirmed Judge Stewarts’s ruling, stating:

    “Judy cites no basis in law for his claim that he is entitled to damages under § 1983, the Sherman Act, or the Clayton Act. Even taking all his allegations as true and construing them in the light most favorable to his case, we see nothing even suggesting that he would ever be entitled to any sort of relief for President Obama’s (and the other Defendants’) supposed wrongdoing. Judy cannot point to a single case that construes any of these statutes in a way supporting his claims for relief. Next, because we see no scenario where he would be entitled to relief under § 1983, the Sherman Act, or the Clayton Act, we also agree with the district court that his complaint was frivolous.”

    In order to prevail on appeal, Judy has to convince the Court that he is entitled to damages under § 1983, the Sherman Act, or the Clayton Act. But his appeal doesn’t even try to do that. Instead he just introduced more material about the birth certificate. But under the Federal Rules you can’t even get to the facts of your case until you have established that you have a legal claim for relief. Judy didn’t do that the first time he appealed this lawsuit, he didn’t do it when he appealed to the Supreme Court, and he hasn’t done it in this appeal.

    Finally, he was denied In Forma Pauperis status because the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure specify that IFP motions must be denied in cases which have been ruled to be frivolous. Judy’s lawsuit has been ruled to be frivolous by both the District Court and the Court of Appeals, so he isn’t entitled to IFP status this time around.

    Oh, the irony: ex-con Judy leaves this comment in the tiny island of the P&E’s comment section.

    “Obots” (whatever that means) aren’t reduced to anything: Obama completed two terms, is credited with a successful and popular presidency, and content knowing that no birther suit got past the sniggering stage.

    Ex-con Judy lives his life like it is a reality show, and then he wonders why the audience snickers at his every pratfall? Birthers like ex-con Judy believe both that distracers mean they are correct and silence means they are correct; there is simply no pleasing the unpleasable.

    I always consider the source and motives behind such frothing excitement over saving everyone they don’t care about or know

    Ex-con Judy deserves every misery he inflicts upon himself. But his child doesn’t. If ex-con Judy enjoys the periodic visits with his son, he’ll need housing more secure than the neighbor’s couch.

Despite the best efforts of the goalie (played in the clip below by Sen. Al Franken), the puck has hit the back of the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals’ net.

    By the way, the WND “reporter” that Franken mentions, in reference to one of John K. Bush’s cray-cray blog posts, is none other than the infamous Jerome Corsi.

    @Bob

    As the saying goes, you can lead a horse to water but you can’t make it drink.

    The District Court did rule that “Plaintiff’s factual allegations border on the irrational and wholly incredible. Moreover, the suit could not survive a motion to dismiss because Plaintiff’s claims rest on conclusory statements rather than factual allegations that plausibly state a claim for relief.” But the Court of Appeals ruled that even if Judy’s factual allegations were true, he still wouldn’t be entitled to relief.

    So what does Judy do? He re-litigates his factual allegations, of course.

    bob: Part one (of two!) is up.

    Judy, always oblivious to the obvious, tells Rondeau:

    “As for getting a different ruling…I’m not sure about that. We do not know how in-depth the Circuit Court got into the review before they used the excuse of ‘friviolous’ laid on by the District Court. If they stopped their review shortly after assuming the denial of IFP, it could be a different outcome.”

    From the Circuit Court ruling, 7/14/17:

    We have reviewed Mr. Judy’s ifp motion, his appellate briefs, and the district court record. Mr. Judy has made no serious attempt at showing how the district court erred.”

    Oops

    Not to beat a dead horse, but Judy’s case has now been reviewed by six different judges on the 10th Circuit, including the Chief Judge, and all six agree that the case is frivolous.

    When in the 10th Cir. the first time around, ex-con Judy requested rehearing en banc. No judge voted yes, including the one since elevated to the Supreme Court.

    Judy did pay the fee. It was received on Friday and docketed this morning.

    The only question now is how long it will take the 10th Circuit to deny the appeal. It could be a couple of months because the next regular session isn’t scheduled until late September.

    Judy has convinced himself that the Tenth Circuit is now going to review whether the District Court erred when it ruled that his lawsuit is frivolous.

    He seems to have forgotten that the Tenth Circuit already weighed in on that back in 2015:

    “Judy cannot point to a single case that construes any of these statutes in a way supporting his claims for relief. Next, because we see no scenario where he would be entitled to relief under § 1983, the Sherman Act, or the Clayton Act, we also agree with the district court that his complaint was frivolous.”

    Rondeau surprisingly is allowing some anti-birther comments to be posted. Maybe she has discovered that it is driving more traffic to her site.

    Anyway, these are my responses that are current pending moderation:

    @Gary Wilmott

    1. It is impossible to establish that the birth certificate in Hawaii’s vault is a forgery without a documents expert examining it. Unless, of course, someone can produce evidence that Obama was born somewhere else.

    2. There is no evidence that Obama’s Selective Service registration – which was released by the Bush Administration – is a forgery.

    3. Obama’s SSN was never issued to a man born in 1890. In fact, you can enter the SSN at the following link and you will see that it was issued in 1976 or 1977, when Obama was 15 or 16. http://www.ssnvalidator.com

    And please don’t bring up Harrison Bounel, a non-existent person. That name came from a stray error in a database which is rife with errors. No U.S. census up to and including the 1940 census contains the name “Harrison Bounel” or “Harry Bounel.” Orly Taitz thought that “Harry Bounel” was found in the 1940 census, but further investigation revealed that “Harry Bounel” actually was Harry Boymel, who was born in 1886 (not 1890), and whose Social Security Number was 080-18-6078. I have a copy of his application for a Social Security Number.

    @Cody Judy

    Your response to me is a non-sequitur. The point is that both the District Court and the Tenth Circuit have ruled that your lawsuit is frivolous.

    As for pointing to cases, the Tenth Circuit was referring to legal cases and your inability to state a legal claim for relief. As usual, instead of addressing the LEGAL ISSUES you try to re-litigate your argument about the definition of natural born citizen. What you don’t seem to understand is that the District Court, Court of Appeals, and Supreme Court don’t care what you believe about the definition of natural born citizen. The rules of jurisprudence require that you first establish that you have a viable claim. Then and only then can your assertions of fact be considered.

    Birthers are coming out of their caves to join the discussion at P&E. Gary Wllmott is peddling the nonsense about the mythical person who supposedly was born in 1890 and somehow was issued a Social Security Number when he was 86 or 87.

    Also making appearances are John Steadman and Ed Sunderland.

    I think Rondeau is learning that more comments = more traffic = more money. And that her birther-related articles are much more popular than anything else.

    Still, the ability to comment at the P&E depends on Rondeau’s good graces, which I expect will capriciously change soon enough.

    So, are you saying that Harrison Bounel wasn’t a Russian Jewish immigrant born in 1890 who lived with Michelle Robinson’s family before she was born, later applied for social security while in a nursing home, later went on to marry young Michele–all before Obama married Michelle so he could steal Harrison’s social security number?

    Ha! I wonder if Wilmott is bright enough to realize that someone who waited until age 86 to apply for a Social Security Number would receive zero benefits. With some exceptions (e.g., survivor’s benefits), you can’t collect Social Security and/or go on Medicare unless you made contributions to the system.

    Talking With Birthers

    I wrote this: “Obama’s SSN was never issued to a man born in 1890.”

    Wilmott’s response: “I am well aware of Rick Damon’s response. However IMO he IMPLIED that I believed the SSN was issued in 1890… I simply stated that it was issued to a man born in 1890.”

    My retort (pending moderation): “I wrote “Obama’s SSN was never issued to a man born in 1890.” I did NOT write “Obama’s SSN was never issued to a man in 1890.” It should be obvious to everyone that nobody was issued a SSN in 1890 because Social Security didn’t exist then. Don’t blame me for your reading comprehension deficits.”

    Wilmott’s (ironic) flounce was pretty good: “I am done addressing obots whose anti-American agenda is based on lies.”

    I am really surprised by Rondeau’s sudden tolerance. Unlike the not-so-distant past, she is approving comments as long as they stick to being factual and polite. (Unless you are a birther; then lies and insults are permitted.)
