The move is continuing to eat my brain, but here's a Dr. Orly-rich dispatch. With the California State Primary being today (8 June), Dr. Orly is in her media whore element. In addition, Larry Sinclair is getting sued. JB Williams shows that to the birtherstani, it really is simply the fact that Obama is President that has them upset. The Restore America Plan people are still claiming big things any day now. Michael Weiner speaks from his nether regions. Pam Barnett wants the court to order that no votes for Damon Dunn be counted. The Pest and eFail is at least honest about the Soviet-style censorship they practice. Former Gen. Vallely jumps on the rebellion and coup bandwagon. The painter of pancakes is raising money for a legal fund. And TPM gives an idea of what's in store for Lakin.
3 June - Looks like Larry Sinclair might be facing a lawsuit.
"A political blogger claims a gadfly defamed him with "wild allegations" about colluding with then-Senator Barack Obama's campaign to hide the murder of a church choir director, cocaine use and gay sex. Daniel Parisi sued Larry Sinclair in Federal Court, and also sued a radio talk show host, Sinclair Publishing, Barnes & Noble, Amazon.com, and Books-a-Million.
Parisi claims Sinclair published a book in 2009 that accuses him of colluding with Obama's adviser David Axelrod to rig a polygraph exam that would debunk Sinclair's story that he had sex and took cocaine with then-Senator Obama.
Parisi claims that in 2008 Sinclair posted "wild allegations regarding the purchase, sale and use of drugs and sexual activity by and between Sinclair and Obama," on YouTube. "
4 June - Over at "Citizens Tsunami", JB Williams babbles inanely.
"More than 400 civil and criminal suits have been filed in countless courts across the country raising a myriad of challenges to Barack Obama’s legitimacy for the office of president, or Commander-in-Chief."
"So far, every court has declined to hear any evidence against Barack Obama. Name one time in history when you could find not one court willing to ask the most obvious questions on a matter as pressing as who the president of the nation really is?"
Well, when was the last time a group of insane conspiracy nuts tried to get the courts to take their wingbat theories seriously??
"It has been well established that no matter who Barack Obama’s real father might be, or where on earth he might have been born, he is NOT a ”natural born citizen” of the United States and he is therefore, ineligible for the office he currently holds."
Now this line is interesting - because it shows very clearly that there is absolutely no level of evidence that will change their minds. It's not about de Vattel, or the Constitution, or a birth certificate, or anything like that. It's simply that Obama is president and they don't want him to be.
"The entire justice system has been eliminated as a peaceful option for redress concerning Barack Hussein Obama. No court in this land will allow any American citizen, civilian or soldier, to question the legitimacy and authority of this particular president.
Our justice system has failed. It has failed at the highest level, to uphold the US Constitution and protect the people from all enemies, foreign or domestic.
Far more troubling than the truth about Obama himself, is the truth about our broken legal system. Without a right to peaceful redress in the courts, what remedies remain?"
Someone wants their civil war fix I see.
5 June - Larry Sinclair is being sued, and Zach Jones couldn't be happier.
"Well, finally some good news for Larry Sinclair. He’s being sued! This is good news because the ultimate defense for defamation is the alleged conduct, etc. is ‘true’. It’s good news because it is another opportunity for the state run media to cover a story they have been trying so hard to hide. It’s good news because Larry Sinclair will have another opportunity to review the results of the ‘polygraph’ exam results. For those who have been following Larry Sinclair’s story, most are aware that the results were not definitive. It seems that Larry Sinclair passed a computer analysis of the results. All good news! I wonder if Larry can subpoena the records of ‘Man’s Country’ to verify recent news stories about Obama and Emanual’s memberships there. That would be great! Maybe a reward for former lovers to come forward. I said COME not &*)(! How about the subpoena for Axelrod.
I think Larry Sinclair will welcome his day in court. It’s always been about the TRUTH for most of us following Larry Sinclair’s story. We have watched how Mr. Sinclair has been vilified and threatened. It is TIME FOR THE TRUTH!
What do you want to bet that somehow this lawsuit goes away? Some may not want people to have the opportunity to judge for themselves who’s more credible – Larry Sinclair or Obama."
7 June - Dr. Orly does some campaigning.
"Apparently birther conspiracy kookiness has gone mainstream in Republican circles. Birther Queen, lawyer-dentist Orly Taitz was feted by the Republican Jewish Coalition as a special guest over the weekend. Taitz, who was recently hit with a $20,000 fine by a federal judge in Georgia for her “frivolous and sanctionable” birther suit, which “borders on delusional,” is running for secretary of state in California.
Taitz spends her days filing “delusional” lawsuits to prove that “the de facto President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama,” is an illegal alien, when she isn’t practicing dentistry.
On her website, described as the “World’s Leading Obama Eligibility Challenge Web Site,” Taitz boasts about her invite to the Republican Jewish Coalition’s “annual summer bash” at the swanky Beverly Hills Hilton. The event touted Republican operative Karl Rove, as the featured speaker, along with Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN). And Taitz mingled with other “special guests,” including Republican senatorial candidate Carly Fiorina, former Sen. Norm Coleman (R-MN), Reps. Connie Mack (R-FL), Mary Bono Mack (R-CA) and right-wing actor Jon Voight.
Is this a sign that extremist birther conspiracy theorist Taitz is now being embraced by the Republican establishment? If so, what’s next, flying saucers and microchips implanted in our brains?"
7 June - The "Restore America Plan" people claim an amount of supporters.
"NOW 40,000,000 RAP SUPPORTERS AND GROWING"
I suspect the total has a 4 in it. It might actually have a zero or two as well.
7 June - And more about Dr. Orly.
"Birther/dentist/insane person Orly Taitz, seen here in a home movie, has a chance to win the Republican primary for secretary of State tomorrow, which would be hilarious. She would then embarrass all the other Republicans running for office before losing to the Democratic candidate by 80 percent."
Oh, and the "home movie" in question?
7 June - More from RAP.
"The Announcements Last Evening by obummer - No Go - This advance intel was faulty. Action still open. obummer is dragging his feet again!
Prosperity Packages deliveries NOW MUST Follow Announcements --- Geee, wonder if obummer got cold feet! LOL?
Before it was assumed by some that packets can go out before the announcement, which was wrong.
The deliveries blockage again is by obummer.
Per RAP activities - ongoing - too sensitive too reveal. VERY POSITIVE "
Someone should have warned him that store-brand rice krispies lie.
" So if it all comes down to just one Obummer holding up the show, just ARREST him, there are enough charges out there that everybody that reads anything know about. Didn't Poof say awhile back that any people obstructing progress would just get bulldozed aside? I don't care if it's a King, Queen, Dictator, Premier or President, if somebody's holding up the show, get him/her off the road! Guess we'll see pretty soon just how much power the 'good guys' really have and if they're willing to use it or not. Seems like from everything that has been said recently, NOW is the time. If not, then WHEN???
June 7, 2010 6:27 AM "
How does "never" sound?
(Bold face mine)
I agree with all the others & I have a real big problem with Obama & don't think he is doing anything positive for us.
Some say he is a double agent...I don't believe that either.
If the RAP elders & GJ's are in control of the military (as we were told) they need to go take him out of the picture..."
And today's Secret Service visit goes to....
So Obama is the holdout keeping things as they are, right?
Maybe Tim and the other Elders can get word to the dejure grand juries to vote to remove Obama by force. I know this was supposed to be a quiet change over, but with Obama, nothing is going to be quiet if he is the one that has to be sacrificed. He's going to be leaving kicking and screaming like a little child, instead of being a man about it. The sooner people know this, the sooner the right things will get done.
I, for one, am looking forward to the mother of July 4 celebrations, and Obastard is apparently keeping that from happening.
June 7, 2010 1:51 PM "
Make that two visits.
7 June - Gawker asks if Dr. Orly could actually win.
"Terrible possible news for the California Republican party: the most famous and eccentric birther in America, Orly Taitz, could win her GOP primary tomorrow for California secretary of state—a high-ranking position that involves certifying election results!
Orly Taitz is a dentist and/or lawyer from California who does not believe that Barack Obama is a citizen of the United States. She thinks that he is either from or Kenya, or perhaps the Moon, and that he could be a spy for all the wrong people, whoever they may be. This, combined with her incredible love for filing junk lawsuits against the president and frequently going insane on television (when they still invited her) in a funny accent, established her as the Queen Birther during the big "show us your birth certificate Obama!" hoopla. Eventually Tea Party organizers stopped inviting her to their events, she asked the UN to protect her from Barack Obama, and she got her name on the ballot for California secretary of state in what sounded like—and probably originally was!—a stunt."
7 June - Over at World Nut Daily, they repost Michael "Savage" Weiner's latest verbal diarrhea.
"Michael Savage, the nation's No. 4-rated radio talk show host, blasted America for either disregarding or covering up questions of Barack Obama's eligibility to serve in the Oval Office and the possibility that "the presidency may have been usurped by a foreign power."
"To have elected an unknown man of unknown origin, a man who's probably not even an American citizen – How can the whole military not know this?" Savage asked on air this past week. "How could the entire military establishment not be asking the same question that millions of Americans are asking?
"Do you think it's plausible that the entire United States military complex does not understand the extreme dangers of having a commander in chief with dual allegiances in the White House?" Savage asked of Obama, who has publicly admitted he was born to a British father and therefore born a dual citizen. "Do they not understand that the presidency may have been usurped by a foreign power?"
They know that a Natural Born US citizen was democratically elected by a majority of American voters, and is therefore the legitimate Commander in Chief.
7 June - And Pamela Barnett wants the courts to tell the state not to count any votes for Damon Dunn.
(Scribd link here)
(Note - The author of the PDF is "Baggot", but the title is DUNN EX PARTE 2 - CHRIS. I suspect Chris Strunk is still helping her.)
"3. Dunn does NOT meet this qualification to be on the ballot for Secretary of State under Statute for CAL ELEC CODE 201, and does not meet the requirement to be a Registered Republican for either the 3 or 12 month requirements based on his perjured void voter registration on file under CEC 8001(a)2. However he was also last registered as a Democrat and would need 12 months as a registered Republican under the law."
Yes. If he had registered in CALIFORNIA.
"4. This is a vitally important matter before the court, because if the court allows the count of the votes to occur for an ineligible candidate, Damon Dunn, that did the preceding actions, will the court be complicit in breaking Cal. Elec. CODE 18500 and 18501 codes? This would put a dark cloud on the honorable court and the integrity of the elections in California, and would cause major disenfranchisement of a large group of voters which would then open up the doors to many lawsuits against the State of California. You can’t put a price on the breach of trust of the California electorate."
It's also the same matter that the court has already rejected.
"Plaintiff, a pro se party did research how to get an expedited hearing on removing Damon Dunn from the ballot. While Plaintiff attended an important matter in New York from May 12, 2010 through May 20, 2010. Plaintiff did assign an agent , Shirley Freemen, assigned to file plaintiff’s proposed Order to Show Cause (OSC)..."
I'd love any defense attorney worth his or her salt to point out to the judge the "important matter" was Manning's play trial.
7 June - Talking Points Memo Muckraker also reports on Dr. Orly's campaign stop.
"Witness the mainstreaming of Orly Taitz?
The longtime Birther agitator and dentist who is now running for the GOP secretary of state nomination in California was a "special guest" of the Republican Jewish Coalition at the group's "annual summer bash" at the Beverly Hills Hilton Sunday. Also in attendance: GOP heavyweights Karl Rove, former Senator Norm Coleman, and California Senate candidates Chuck DeVore and Carly Fiorina.
The program for the event, touted by Taitz on her website, lists about 15 "Special Guests" including Coleman, Reps. Connie Mack (R-FL), Mary Bono Mack (R-CA), Edward Royce (R-CA), and Taitz. Speakers included Rove, who gave the keynote and Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) (with whom Taitz is already acquainted)."
7 June - Like most birther sites, The Pest and eFail practices a level of censorship that would make Stalin happy. But at least they're honest about it.
"Comments disagreeing with editorials or articles will generally not be published unless the commenter is objecting to the fairness and objectivity of the article and has sound reasons to do so."
Translation - "Departure from the party line is thoughtcrime and will not be tolerated.
"Additional Editor’s Note: Because there is a mountain of evidence indicating that Barack H. Obama is not a natural born Citizen as required by Article II, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution to serve as President, The Post & Email does not refer to him as the “President.” Therefore, if your submission refers to “President Obama” or “Mr. President,” the wording will be changed unless and until Obama proves that he meets the eligibility criteria. Anyone not in agreement with this policy should withhold his or her submission."
So no comments from the reality-based community allowed, and not only will they censor your comments, they'll edit and rewrite them to fit their political bias and pre-concieved theories.
But at least they're honest about being a propaganda source.
7 June - And still more about Dr. Orly.
"Stinque’s favorite Israeli-Russian emigre, birther, dentist, and soon-to-be-disbarred member of the California Bar may very well end up winning the GOP primary for California Secretary of State tomorrow. While she’s only raised $6,000 for her campaign (H/T Bloggie), and there has been no official polling for this race, straw polls at Tea Party events indicate that the teabaggers are rallying to support Orly Taitz’s campaign against a former professional football player, Damon Dunn, who is the party establishment’s choice.
More than a few party operatives are chewing their fingernails at the thought of another Rand Paul-type upset in a GOP primary.
On the other hand, your West Coast editors at Stinque are overwhelmed with excitement at the thought of four months of covering Meg, Carly, and Orly campaigning across the state. Oooh, and what if Talibunny joins them on the campaign trail?"
7 June - AlterNet comments on Dr. Orly being a GOP nightmare.
"I have never wanted a candidate to win a primary more than I want Orly Taitz to become the GOP nominee for Secretary of State of California. She’s the underdog, but she’s running against a dimwitted “establishment” Republican who’s not taking her very seriously, no doubt underestimating the frothy madness of the GOP primary voters who will turn out in a year like this. And because they are going to be absolutely insane, she just might win!"
7 June - The Huffington Post comments too.
"Birther queen Orly Taitz's claim to fame might not have seemed like an ideal launching pad for a Republican campaign for California Secretary of State, but now her momentum has the GOP quaking in their boots.
Taitz is facing a rather weak primary challenge from former Jacksonville Jaguar Damon Dunn on Tuesday, and Republican officials are worried that the controversial conspiracy theorist could go all the way.
As Politico reported Monday, the GOP would see a Taitz victory as a lost opportunity"
7 June - Former Gen. Paul E. Vallely, who's supposed to be one of Lakin's witnesses, calls for the "Resignation of Barry Soetoro". And someone forgot his oath to protect and defend the Constitution.
(Bold face mine)
"Being a representative republic, not a democracy, “rising up” means other than revolution by means of arms. The people must “rise up” from the grass roots across this great country as we think of the greater good of this and future generations. We are limited in the peaceful transfer of power … resignation, death, elections, and impeachment.
“We the People” have had enough. Enough is Enough. The Obama White House and identifiable Members of Congress are now on a progressive socialist, treasonous death march and are bankrupting and weakening the country. We have watched them violate their sacred oath of office. “We, the People” cannot wait for and solely rely on the next round of elections in November of this year. It is now and each day that these public servants must put the citizen’s interests above self-interest by resigning immediately. Our so-called Representatives and Senators are more interested in party loyalty than performing their duties. So, do not expect them to resign en masse or be impeached. Therefore the “people” must decide. A civil uprising is still not out of the question. They know which side of the bread their butter is on and it is not on our side.
We now must call for the immediate resignation of Barry Soetoro (AKA President Barack Hussein Obama) — based on Incompetence, Deceit, Fraud, Corruption, Dishonesty and Violation of the US Constitution.
And a call for a National Petition for new elections to select the next President of the United States of America must be initiated. We can wait no longer for a change of Power and new Government."
Vallely retired in 1993. I get the feeling someone having major problems with the idea of an uppity black man as Commander in Chief.
7 June - And more still about Dr. Orly. She must really be enjoying the attention.
"You might remember Orly Taitz, maybe. She’s the white haired banshee woman that sometimes gets to be on the television where, naturally, she just shrieks as loud as possible about any sort of inanity that comes into her funny looking head. One such inanity that she’s essentially taken the throne of is the Obama Is A Kenyan National And Not An America Citizen “movement”.
She is literally so crazy that even the people who have similar concerns as her, other very crazy wingnuts, don’t want to be seen with her at all anymore. But it’s OK! They will get to be seen with her all the time and then vote for her to take up lots of important responsibilities for the entire already ruined state of California this coming election when she wins her Republican primary for secretary of state!"
7 June - And the laughs keep coming.
"Taitz may well win, simply because the birther movement is so rife within the Republican Party. In 2009, Research 2000 found a plurality of Republicans thought Obama was not born in America (42-28%), while PPP found Republians closely divided on the issue (38%--44%, PDF, page 18) This election is thus a major referendum about the acceptability of loud and out birthirsm in the Republican Party. If she wins, other Republican candidats might become more willing to go public with their own, likely watered down, brand of birtherism.
Amid ongoing voter disenfranchisement in Arkansas, the Taitz campaign is also an election integrity issue story worth noting. While many Open Lefters are not too thrilled with Obama's presidency, Taitz overtly stating her desire to bend the law in any way means necessary to help defeat Democrats, but during and after elections, should send a chill down your spine:
"Barack Obama is a terrible president, and we have to get him out of office by any weird loophole we can make up," she said on an appearance last summer on the Colbert Report.
This is a starkly anti-democratic statement. Tomorrow, we will find out if it is the majority opinion of the Republican Party. "
8 June - Politico calls a possible win for Dr. Orly a GOP Bad Dream.
“It’d be a disaster for the Republican party,” says James Lacy, a conservative GOP operative in the state. “Can you imagine if [gubernatorial candidate] Meg Whitman and [candidate for Lt. Gov.] Abel Maldonado — both of whom might have a chance to win in November — had to run with Orly Taitz as secretary of state, who would make her cockamamie issues about Obama’s birth certificate problems at the forefront of her activities?”
“There is no Republican candidate for statewide office that would be willing to have her campaign with them,” says Adam Probolsky, a spokesman for the Orange County Republican Party.
But longtime California GOP strategist Allan Hoffenblum, who publishes the California Target Book, says a Taitz victory is entirely possible. “It will be a complete embarrassment if she wins, but these things can happen,” he said."
8 June - From "Citizen" Larry Wells' primate cage.
"Bill G // June 8, 2010 at 12:24 am
Letter today sent to Officer Driscoll
Dear Officer Driscoll
I read with interest your determination of June 1 regarding the Lakin hearing."
Translation - "I screamed and bitched and stamped my tiny feet."
"Please keep the following in mind as you deliberate. Your hearing lacks legal standing, if Barack Obama is not a Natural Born Citizen. You need to make a determination that he is qualified under Article II as POTUS to even convene a hearing. Since Mr Obama has admitted publicly on many occasions, and there is no dispute, that his Dad was British, he cannot be NBC and he knows this. You also know this. No evidence or testimony need be proferred by any party regarding information that is commonly know to all parties."
In other words "please ignore 200+ years of US law, please ignore the facts, and only do what we tell you to."
"All orders received through the chain of command, from an illegal, usurper President are illegal. Any party obeying such orders is violating their oath to the Constitution and committing treason. I am sure you understand the consequences for treason. I suggest you consider the effect your decisions will have on the USA, you personally and your family."
Yeah, threatening the Investigating Officer and his family is going to go over SO well.
"Lakin is not on trial, you are."
Nope, it's Lakin, but thanks for playing "America's Biggest Loser"
8 June - Salon also covers the GOP nightmare that is Dr. Orly.
"Orly Taitz, who is a legitimately crazy person, is running for California secretary of state. Taitz, a dentist and attorney, has dedicated her life to suing Barack Obama over and over again until he finally admits that he was secretly born in Kenya. And she just might win the GOP nomination today.
Taitz' opponent has apparently barely even campaigned, just relying on the fact that he's running against a crazy person to win the nomination. (Taitz, meanwhile, has filed a number of suits against him, attempting to get him off the ballot because he was once a registered Democrat.) But that might not be enough."
8 June - Dan Lacey, the "Painter of Pancakes" seems to getting harassed by Dr. Orly, and is raising money for a legal fund.
Donate to his legal fund, and you get a chance to win his latest, "Orly Taitz: The Naked Pancake Truth"
8 June - Dr. Orly even made the UK papers.
"Meanwhile, in the running for the GOP nomination for California's secretary of state is the Birther queen herself, Orly Taitz, best known for her ludicrous lawsuits regarding President Obama's place of birth (which was Hawaii, in case you were wondering). According to Politco, Taitz has a shot at winning the Republican nomination, which would spell hours of fun for the whole family, as well as being terrific for the Republican party's image in California and the rest of the country."
8 June - Talking Points Memo Muckraker gives the readers an idea of what to expect at Lakin's hearing friday.
"The most dramatic Birther stand of the Obama era is set to begin in earnest Friday when the military kicks off a preliminary hearing in the court martial of Birther Army Doctor Terrence Lakin. The process is likely to last several months and may well end with Lt. Col Lakin dismissed from the Army or even in jail, two military lawyers tell TPMmuckraker,
Lakin refused orders to deploy to Afghanistan earlier this year. He believes -- and said as much in a widely viewed YouTube video in March -- that Obama is not legitimately president, and that therefore all military orders are invalid. He faces charges of missing movement and not obeying orders.
In advance of Friday's preliminary hearing at Walter Reed Medical Center, where Lakin is based, here's a look at how the process will unfold, and how it differs from the civilian system."
