March rolls around and the birther belfrey battery continues. Orly gets new suckers for her military case and continues her international media tour. Berg and Donofrio mutters dire warnings about Dr. Orly, the tea bag brigade has to deal with the birthers riding on their backs. The usual treasonberries are hard at work wiping their rears on the Constitution they claim to uphold and respect, and regular conservatives are trying to figure out what to do with the birthers they helped create.
23 February - CNN also spanks Sen. Richard Shelby
25 February - Leo Donofrio also decides to spank Dr. Orly about her recruiting military personnel
"I hoped the issue would go away, but it didn’t. This week an active military officer signed a consent form to be a plaintiff in a future law suit brought by Orly Taitz. Besides erroneously reporting that the officer had defied a Presidential order, the officer’s name was released and inflammatory and contemptuous statements were also released via World Net Daily, Orly’’s blog and the Drudge Report.
I complained vehemently and eventually the incorrect headline which grossly and erroeneously stated that the officer had defied a Presidential order was changed at all three sources.
Unfortunately, the damage had already been done. Review the following statement by the officer:
“Until Mr. Obama releases a ‘vault copy’ of his original birth certificate for public review, I will consider him neither my Commander in Chief nor my President, but rather, a usurper to the Office – an impostor…”
This statement should never have been made public. If Orly Taitz is going to solicit active military to join her potential law suit and sign consent forms thereto, then she should be charged with the responsibility of knowing the exact punishment her clients will be subjected to, and she should be protecting them from any unnecessary jeopardy.
There was absolutely no need for contemptuous language to have been uttered as such language is clearly in violation of Article 88 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, which states:
Article 88—Contempt toward officials
a. Text of statute.
Any commissioned officer who uses contemptuous words against the President, the Vice President, Congress, the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of a military department, the Secretary of Homeland Security, or the Governor or legislature of any State, Territory, Commonwealth, or possession in which he is on duty or present shall be punished as a court-martial may direct.
Maximum punishment. Dismissal, forfeiture of all pay and allowances, and confinement for 1 year.
Clearly, calling the President an “imposter” and a “usurper” is contemptuous language by any possible definition of the word."
