Taitz under attack, surrounded–threats loom

While I’m at the dentist’s office, you can read this tale of Orly Taitz inserting herself where she is not wanted, but herself found wanting a legal theory to support her action.

Thanks to the Jack Ryan collection for this tidbit that contains some perhaps over-the-top language, which I borrowed for the headline.

Taitz’ motion is subject to attack on many fronts; between Plaintiffs and the Defendants, she is surrounded.

In sum, Taitz has not articulated any specific common question of law or fact, much less one compelling enough to overcome the looming threats of delay and undue prejudice.

Judicial Watch v King (SD Ind) – Order Denying Taitz Motion to Intevene by Jack Ryan

Can the President be arrested?

This is the second article with a similar title, the first being “Can President be Arrestedor?” from April of 2009. Once again Orly Taitz is sitting at her computer spinning fantasies about how she can discomfit the President, not realizing how utterly absurd the whole concept is.

In that 2009 article I linked to a 2000 US Attorney General opinion that answered the titular question with “no.”

This time, Taitz has lit upon a Connecticut law that allows three electors to swear a complaint against someone for elections law violations, upon which the judge is supposed to issue a warrant for their arrest. Her article’s title is: “It looks like I have 3 individuals from the state of CT, who can file the affirmation of Obama violated laws relating to elections. I need help with research of any and all laws, including CT laws of identity theft, theft of a Social Security number to include in the complaint”.

The law that Orly cites is Chapter 151, § 9-368, which says:

Sec. 9-368. Arrest of accused. Upon the written complaint of any three electors of a town in which a violation of any law relating to elections has occurred to any judge of the superior court for the judicial district within which the offense has been committed, supported by oath or affirmation that the complainants have good reason to believe and do believe that the allegations therein contained are true and can be proved, such judge shall issue a warrant for the arrest of the accused.

Besides the insurmountable problems with any state trying to arrest the President, there are some details that get in the way of Orly’s gambit in Connecticut, namely, her failure to read the statute completely, “Chapter 151 Elections: Prohibited Acts and Penalties.” None of the unlawful conduct listed refers to candidates. They refer to voting and the conduct of elections. I read in the title of Orly’s article that she doesn’t have a clue what Connecticut elections law the President allegedly violated and she expects her Internet followers to be her legal research assistant.

A warning to anyone who plans to get involved with Orly Taitz: Consult an attorney before doing something stupid. Orly Taitz is out to get the President at all costs and does not consider the risk to others.

The Great Mother of All Natural Born Citizen Quotation Pages

Partial lists don’t carry the full impact of citations scattered here and there. This project is to collect everything accessible and to the point into one place If it takes much context or argument, a brief reference and a link is included. I promise you that the quotations will mean the same thing when you read them here than they mean if you read the larger context, and the larger context will be linked to the text. No tricks, no deception.

For additional citations, see The “Natural Born Citizenship” Clause (Updated) to whom this article is indebted for some of these citations. And for EVEN MORE citations see SCOTUS & “Natural Born Citizen” – A Compendium, Books on Google that define “Natural Born Citizen” and History of US citizenship laws.
