Tag Archives | Taitz v. Colvin

Post hoc ergo Taitz propter hoc

Orly Taitz takes credit for delay in the confirmation of Carolyn Colvin to head the Social Security Administration. Confirmation was delayed, says Taitz, after she sent a “criminal complaint” to the FBI, alleging Colvin’s complicity in Obama ID fraud. Taitz’ article (and there is really an article under this headline) is: “Press release: Second high ranking Obama official involved in the cover up of Obama’s fabricated IDs, resigns, third official had her confirmation hearing postponed by Senate after Taitz filed a criminal complaint with the FBI.” Taitz wrote:

After Attorney Orly Taitz filed a complained with the FBI relating to acting commissioner Carolyn Colvin’s complicity in cover up of Obama’s use of a stolen Connecticut Social security number 042-68-4425, Senate confirmation of Carolyn Colvin as a full Commissioner of SSA was stalled for five months.

Colvin had been serving as the acting head of the Social Security Administration and was nominated by President Obama for the regular position. The Senate finance committee voted 22-2 to recommend the nomination to the full senate last September.

The background is that Orly Taitz had named Colvin in a lawsuit against the Social Security Administration under the Freedom of Information Act. A query at a database aggregator service returned the name “Harrison J. Bounel” and the year of birth 1890 attached to the social-security number used by President Obama, and publicized by Taitz. Taitz assumed this data item, the source of which remains unknown, must indicate that the number actually was issued to Bounel and that Obama had used it fraudulently. The Social Security Administration could find no such person in their files (nor has anyone else located this individual). This is what Taitz sued over and why she thinks Colvin is covering for the President.

Taitz also thinks she may have had a hand in the resignations of Attorney General Holder and Postmaster General Donahoe. both named in lawsuits. Taitz lost all of those lawsuits.

A waste of money

So Orly Taitz wrote in an article yesterday [link to Taitz web site] that she had appealed Taitz v. Colvin to the 4th Circuit. I ran a search on PACER to find the case, wasting ten cents on getting no results as of close of business today. Taitz, no doubt, wasted a lot more filing a case that has zero chance of going anywhere. We’ll just have to wait for the text.

As I was writing this article, my browser rested on the Taitz site and some of those dodgy download messages started appearing.  I thought about adding a sidebar feature, a Taitz web site threat alert level, but that wouldn’t be good unless it was always up to date. Here is today’s alert anyway:

I’ve been impressed by the various judicial opinion’s I’ve read in the course of writing about Obama conspiracy stories. It’s sort of a mini legal education. I can’t read Judge Hollander’s decision in Taitz v. Colvin without hearing in the background, “See? This is how to frame a legal argument!”

How do I make this sound interesting?

Readers may recall that the FOIA lawsuit Taitz v. Colvin, an attempt to force the Social Security Administration to release a non-existent record for the apparently equally non-existent Harrison J. Bounel, was decided in favor of the Social Security Administration. They looked, and didn’t find anything.

Cover-up, screams Taitz and blames a conflict of interest on the part of Judge Hollander, who was appointed to the federal bench by Barack Obama.

In an article [link to Taitz web site] including her motion to re-open and recuse, Taitz cites the rules on judicial recusal and, in my opinion, fails to find anything relevant.

Update:

Thanks to a commenter here, perhaps it got more interesting. This is from Taitz’ motion:

Further, revelation of a conflict of interest by a judge represents a new evidence, which satisfies Rule 60(b)(2).

But was it “new evidence”? Here is a screen shot from Orly Taitz’ web site:

And here’s another:

Taitz responds to comment 41, suggesting that she was well aware last January that Judge Hollander was an Obama appointee. Is Taitz trying to deceive the Court?

Well, she would, wouldn’t she?

Taitz lost her bid to become Attorney General of California, and so despite her recent attempt to play one in US district court, she is still not a prosecutor. She filed a notice with the United States District Court for the District of Maryland, making the prosecution of Obama for treason a cause to reconsider the decision against her in her FOIA lawsuit against the Social Security Administration, Taitz v. Colvin, which Taitz lost on the merits. Taitz also moves that her “evidence” be forwarded to a federal grand jury. This is Taitz’ second motion for reconsideration in this case.

Taitz had argued that (somehow) the recent Bergdahl prisoner swap conducted by the Obama administration empowers her to intervene, even though she does not represent Bowe Bergdahl, nor any of the detainees in Guantanamo. Taitz alleges:

Obama committed a high crime of treason, giving aid and comfort to the enemy under 18 US§ (sic) 2381.

While Taitz does not mention Hitler, she does mention Himmler, Goebbels, Heydrich, Goering and Eichman (sic).

Despite the fact that Taitz published an article today (18 June 2014)  [link to article] on this filing, it had already been denied last week (13 June 2014). Judge Hollander wrote in her Memorandum Opinion that there are no grounds for reconsideration, specifically:

Here, plaintiff has not identified any intervening change in controlling law or newly discovered evidence.

Judge Hollander further states that Taitz’ new emergency motion has nothing to do with her case, saying:

Needless to say, plaintiff’s disagreement with President Obama’s presidential decision-making does not provide support for her allegation that the SSA’s response to her FOIA request was inadequate.

According to NBC News:

The Army has appointed Maj. Gen. Kenneth Dahl, a two-star general, to lead an investigation into the circumstances of Bergdahl’s disappearance and capture.

Congress will also investigate the prisoner swap. There is simply no place for Taitz in this business.

Taitz loses SSA lawsuit on the merits

The somewhat complex litigation history of Taitz v. Colvin is admirably detailed in the Court’s detailed memorandum opinion. US District Judge Ellen L. Hollander declined to dismiss Taitz’ second amended complaint as moot, but rather ruled on cross motions from both sides for summary judgment.

Judge Hollander, a recent Obama appointee, examined in detail the parties’ allegations and representations to determined that, as a matter of law, a trial was unnecessary, and determined that summary judgment should be awarded in favor of the Social Security Administration. She also declined to forward Taitz’ allegations to a grand jury, saying:

…even assuming that 18 U.S.C. § 3332(a) provides district courts with discretion to  present evidence to a grand jury or to appoint private litigants to present evidence to a grand jury,  plaintiff has not provided a basis for me to exercise that discretion.

One can learn a lot about FOIA by reading the opinion.

Orly Taitz on a roll

or more accurately a “continuous loop”

  • April 4, Taitz web site, headline: “No decision yet from Judge Hollander…”
  • April 3, Taitz web site, headline: “Still no order from Judge Hollander …”
  • April 2, Taitz web site, headline: “No decision yet in MD case…”
  • April 1, Taitz web site, headline: “No decision yet … Decision by Judge Hollander is expected any day now”

  • March 25, Taitz web site, headline: “still no answer [in MD case]
  • March 24, Taitz web site, headline: “no answer in MD case …”

What’s that all about? Does she think Judge Hollander reads Taitz’ blog?

On a lighter note, while scrolling back through Taitz articles to catalog the headlines preceding, I came across another article titled, “Orly Taitz Really Could Finish Second in the Attorney General Primary Vote — and Go to November” by Greg Diamond of the Orange Juice blog (an Orange County web site). Taitz seems to have just copied [link to Taitz web site] the blog entry in toto. The photo’s HTML <title> attribute copied onto Taitz’s own site is “Orly Taitz (red eyes).”
