Poll: What’s your favorite birther image from 2014?

I have a couple of images from 2014 that are my personal favorites. One is the logo for the Orly Taitz Super PAC. Originally, the OTSPAC had laughably bad graphics, leading many to the correct opinion that the site was a spoof. The spiffy updated graphic made the site a little more credible. The anonymous designer is not a Taitz supporter, and was not responsible for putting up the site.

My other favorite image is one I made myself, altering a real TV news clip showing Mike Zullo, and highlighting the “universe shattering” revelations that never happened.

Commenters have offered another Zullo image (courtesy of RC Radio), part of the brief KPHO-TV interview where Zullo admitted taking the $10,000 gift:

Taitz claims victory in California AG vote

Wins Tea Party straw poll in Yuba City

Yuba City sits right at edge of Sutter Buttes in Sutter County.

The Sutter Buttes Tea Party Patriots held a straw poll last week (May 19), and Taitz reports she won the Attorney General race. Taitz was invited to appear at the Sutter Buttes Tea Party Patriots “Meet the Candidates” in 2012 when she was running for the Senate—don’t know if she made it, but she had confirmed. Orly Taitz got 3.9% of the Senate Primary vote in Sutter County in 2012.

The Territorial Dispatch (the local newspaper) mentions the “All Candidates Mixer” in its May 14 issue mentions, but the May 21 and May 28 issues don’t mention the result. It only appears on their blog.  The Sutter Buttes Tea Party Web site has some photos of the event.

I did find this cryptic item in the Territorial Dispatch for May 21:

Meanwhile, the Orly Taitz Super PAC is taking credit for Orly’s win in Yuba City. In an article titled: “Stunning success for Orly Taitz Super PAC” they write:

This is HUGE!

Followers of the Orly Taitz Super PAC may remember Pat M’s comment on our Supporter’s Page:

I was real excited at the presentation at the Protect Our Freedoms Foundation workshop in Yuba City. What your doing is very important and I just wish I had more dollars to spare.

Well Pat, thanks to you and many more, we’ve achieved a stunning success in Yuba City. Candidate Taitz on her blog reports the news that:

the Sutter Buttes Tea Party Patriots announced the results of their 2014 Gubernatorial Primary Election Straw Poll. The Straw Poll was conducted using secret ballots submitted by members who attended the “All Candidates Mixer Extravaganza,” Monday, May 19, 2014.

Their choice for California Attorney General?

ORLY!

Fakes and Frauds

Orly is saying that someone created a fake Facebook page for her. She asked that it be removed, and the link Orly supplied doesn’t work now, so maybe Facebook did remove it.

Run, Orly Run: web site has problems

I was looking for polling results on the California Attorney General race—didn’t find any. Commentary I read says that Democratic incumbent Kamala D. Harris is a shoe in–no idea who will be #2. California has a “top-two” primary system, where all the candidates run together, and the top two, regardless of party, move on. In California it’s not unusual to have two Democrats facing each other in the general election.

Anyway, I came to the Ballotpedia web site entry for the 2014 California AG contest, which links to Orly Taitz’ campaign web site. Her site is a WordPress blog with a nice header graphic featuring the Golden Gate Bridge, and Orly’s smiling face. The articles have a named author, in this case Chito Papa, a Florida “computer guy” that testified for her in the Farrar case in Atlanta.

Benign neglect

Whoever is running the site isn’t all that concerned about its appearance, evidenced by this leftover on the front page:

Also on the Orly Gear page, there is a month-old inquiry from a KFBK  staffer asking for an Orly Taitz’ photo for their candidates page at KFBK.com. There is no reply on Orly’s web site, and the KFBK page now has that really goofy Washington Post photo by Jonathan Alcorn.

No one expects…

The Orly Taitz Super PAC put up a message a few weeks back that they had moved to a new and faster server. It seemed to have worked as I got about 3 second response on that home page. They have a new short article up complaining about the Los Angeles Times ignoring Taitz.

Battle of the bumper stickers

The official Orly Gear page has a bunch of different bumper stickers that you can order from MakeStickers.com. The Orly Taitz Super PAC is also offering bumper stickers from the same company, only just a single design. Both competing web sites are charging the same $4.95 for a standard-sized sticker, so neither is making any money off them. Orly says that a t=shirt is coming soon, but they better hurry because the race is likely to be over in 11 days.

Independent reporting

I came across an independent progressive web site covering the California AG race, that had some comical things to say about Taitz.

California Primary, June 3

Interesting true story. I was talking to one of the anti-birthers at the Fogbow meetup Saturday. It appears that she had attended a meeting, not suspecting that there would be one of those “patriotic presentations” from the Orly Taitz Super PAC as part of the program, including the handing out of OTSP bumper stickers. (No one expects the Orly Taitz Super PAC.) So I asked her, if she was going to vote for Orly Taitz for California AG. She said no, that even for a joke, her vote was too valuable to her.

I can certainly appreciate such a sentiment. On the other hand, I know some folks who want Orly Taitz to be in the AG runoff race for the entertainment value. Contrary to popular belief, I won’t be voting and will remain neutral on the contest.

On an unrelated Taitz story, Orly received an invitation to attend an International Criminal Court school for attorneys and NGOs in Ireland. She’s asking for donations to pay her way ($2,500) for the June 16-20 school about how the ICC works. I think I’ll save up my money for the Fogbow meetup in Hawaii next year instead.

Orly Taitz Super PAC responds

I just saw this in the Twitter feed.

Readers may recall that Orly Taitz in her most recent two filings in Mississippi raised the issue of the Orly Taitz Super PAC, alleging that it was stealing money from her campaign. Now the Orly Taitz Super PAC has responded with an article sympathetic to Taitz, and this pledge:

We give our solemn assurance that every penny raised by the Orly Taitz Super PAC is used to promote Orly Taitz’ candidacy for Attorney General.

This article has been updated to show the spiffy new graphic for the Orly Taitz Super PAC. According to the Volunteer page, it was donated by someone with the initials PA.
