Doc foresees latest Taitz move in a dream

imageI mentioned briefly in a comment a couple of days ago that I had a dream, a really strange one, where I kept finding boxes of cranks and  boxes of dirt. It wasn’t obvious why I had this dream, but I think now that it was prophetic of the latest legal move of Orly Taitz in Grinols v. Electoral College.

Not long after being rebuffed by the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in Taitz v Democrat Party of Mississippi, where she attempted to obtain a Writ of Mandamus to require the judge to declare Michael Astrue, former Commissioner of Social Security, in default for failing to respond to a defective service of the complaint, she turns around and files an appeal of Judge England’s refusal to find President Obama in default in Grinols, where the judge had explained in great detail why her service was defective in that case also.

imageThe legal form of the two appellate actions are different, one to force a judge to rule  with a writ of mandamus and the other an appeal of a ruling, but the underlying defect is the same: Orly Taitz doesn’t follow the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and local rules when serving plaintiffs. Repeated legal failures makes one a crank [Note: at the time this written I thought “crank” meant the same as “crackpot”] , and I think that this is what my dream meant, particularly as Orly Taitz once inexplicably said on her blog [link to Taitz web site]: “I used this motion to simply pour dirt on me.”

Note: there is a hearing on a motion to dismiss in this case on the 18th of this month.

Not worth the risk

A joke is a very serious thing.

–Winston Churchill

The clock has clicked past midnight and it is now April Fools’ Day. In many countries, it’s a day to play practical jokes and to make up outlandish stories and to try to trick others into believing them. I’ve had a lot of fun listening to the faux April 1 stories from National Public Radio.

In the Obama Conspiracy business, birthers are so ready to believe anything and everything, and so slow to give up such beliefs even when they are shown to be false, that it’s really not work the risk of playing an April Fools’ joke with an Obama Conspiracy theme. A major thread of birtherism is the belief that Obama attended college receiving student aid as a foreign student, and yet that was nothing more than an April Fools’ hoax.


Taitz dental office seized by feds

This is breaking news from OC Weekly, the best local coverage of Orly Taitz and her antics. In a pre-dawn raid, agents from the Drug Enforcement Administration seized the building at 29839 Santa Margarita Parkway in Rancho Santa Margarita, California, housing the dental practice and law offices of Orly Taitz, Esq. As we reported last year, Taitz had leased part of the building to a medical marijuana distributor.

While legal in California, the sale and possession of marijuana is still against federal law, and statutes allow seizing assets, including buildings and vehicles, used in the drug trade.

OC Weekly speculates that this is pay-back from the Obama administration for Taitz’ string of harassing lawsuits against the President. Taitz, in a characteristic response, has posted a string of articles [link to Taitz web site] on her blog, describing herself as a political dissident and urging her readers and supporters to flood the Justice Department  and California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger with complaints.
