A couple "better late then never" updates from PolitiFact. Dr. Orly is spinning tales of look-alikes and evil twins. We have comments about the political usefulness of birtherstanis, Dr. Orly's followers ignore who shared the Dental Chair o' Luv with her. In a circular firing squad of stupidity, World Nut Daily cites the Pest and eFail. Dr. Orly starts hitting up her remaining followers for $20,000 worth of stupid. CNN points out that claims of Presidential Ineligibility isn't anything new. The media picks up on Dr. Orly's lien. Allan West flirts with the birtherstani. Joseph Farah writes a shrill and dishonest article - again. Dr. Orly takes a big hit off the nitrous tube of conspiracy and rides the pink unicorn into wingbattia. Chris Strunk whines in court that the evidence doesn't support his beliefs, therefore the evidence is wrong. An interesting - and disturbing article on the less savoury tactics in modern conservatism. And the OC Weekly reports on Dr. Orly fishing for donations.
28 June - Missed a couple updates from PolitiFact. Like this one on the Pakistan trip myth.
"Obama has said he traveled to Pakistan in 1981. He was on summer vacation from college, and, after visiting his mother in Indonesia, he traveled to Pakistan with a college friend. However, according to the U.S. Department of State, the department in charge of issuing travel bans, Pakistan had a green light for adventurous U.S. citzens.
"According to our Pakistan experts," said Ivna Giauque, a public affairs officer at the State Department, "there was no travel ban to Pakistan in 1981."
Without the original premise that Pakistan had a travel ban, the rest of the argument deteriorates. The author of the e-mail may have been confusing a travel warning or travel advisory with a travel ban. The University of Illinois at Chicago Library has an archive of State Department documents, including one from Aug. 17, 1981, issuing a travel advisory for Pakistan. It is the oldest travel advisory document in the archive related to Pakistan.
Even if Obama traveled after the advisory was issued instead of earlier in the summer, the State Department confirmed it wasn't illegal. Our good friends at Snopes and Factcheck.org found a travel article about visiting Pakistan published in the New York Times in June 1981, and it mentions nothing about such travel being illegal. An August 1981 letter to the editor in the New York Times by the U.S. Consul General in Lahore, Pakistan, encouraged people to come visit. We also found an ad in the New York Times from March which listed Karachi and Lahore as two destinations in their travel package.
In 1981, travel to Pakistan was not illegal or prohibited. Somebody was just looking for an excuse to promote the birther conspiracy, so we rate it Pants On Fire."
Which is what i've been saying here for quite a while now.
30 July - And PolitiFact covers a few more birtherstani myths.
"An alleged AP article asserts that the Justice Antonin Scalia agreed that the Supreme Court would hear a case challenging Obama"s eligibility to be president. In reality, the article is fake, and the court did not agree to hear the case.
In the same "article" is a claim that that Obama was an Indonesian citizen and attended Occidental College as an undergraduate on a Fulbright scholarship. The falsehoods in that claim led us to consider actually dousing a pair of pants in gasoline and lighting them on fire in the Politifact office.
The last of our claims was the most interesting because it seemed theoretically possible. The e-mail argued that since Obama traveled to Pakistan in 1981, and Pakistan was on the U.S. State Department's "no travel list” in 1981, Obama must not have traveled to Pakistan as a U.S. citizen. We knew it was true that Obama traveled to Pakistan in 1981, so we checked to see if the rest of the claims were. Nope. It was perfectly legal to travel to Pakistan as a U.S. citizen in 1981.
While we are fully aware that our investigations will not end the birther fantasy, we can still try."
30 July - The OC Register covers Dr. Orly's tilting at pinwheels.
"Taitz then turned her attention to a $20,000 sanction for misconduct she was given in October by Georgia Judge Clay D. Land in another Obama case and still hasn't paid. On July 7, she asked Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas to stay the fine.
"Allowing sanctions by Judge Land to stand will signify beginning of tyranny in the United States," she wrote in her lengthy brief. She also has an offer on her website – "World's Leading Obama Eligibility Challenge Web Site" – to send you a bound, autographed copy of the brief for $100.
Thomas dismissed the request on July 15, but Taitz immediately questioned why his dismissal, posted on the Supreme Court website, didn't carry his signature, and asked the court the verify that Thomas did indeed reject her request.
On July 27, Taitz complained on her website that she had resubmitted her request to stay the fine to Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito but that clerks had not docketed it. She asks her supporters to call the Supreme Court on her behalf. Perhaps it's a slow time of the season for them as well."
6 August - Dr. Orly must have taken an extra big hit off the nitrous hose. (malware and redirect warning)

If you were in CA in the court room during Judge Carter hearings and could see a difference in his appearance, please, let me know"
Cue the letter to the Supreme Court claiming Judge Carter was replaced by a doppelganger in 3...2...1.....
6 August - AOL News Surge Desk comments on the birtherstani, starting with Lakin.
"Birtherism is useful politically to select Republican politicians, but it's most tangible accomplishment so far has been the self-destruction of a couple of military careers and the boosting of the profile of Dr. Orly Taitz, Esq."
7 August - I guess Dr. Orly hasn't mentioned a military coup in weeks.....(malware and redirect warning)
" I believe that each and every member of US military should support Lt. Col Lakin. They can put one officer in prison, they can’t put the whole military in prison, in order to allow this Kenyan communist usurper to continue defrauding the nation, for the courts continue avoiding this issue and for corrupt congressmen and senators, who got into office via compromised elections, continue selling out the whole Nation"
And in comments:
August 8th, 2010 @ 2:33 am
Orly does not want any one with criminal record to be associated with her. Phil Berg is discredited for employing one with a criminal record."
Does the name "Charles E. Lincoln, III" ring any bells? Or "Lucas Smith"? Or "Larry Sinclair"??
9 August - World Nut Daily has definitely gone to de Vattelville. quoting from - surprise surprise - the Pest and eFail.
"Bilbray disagreed with most of the arguments raised by the challenges. He said a natural born citizen is someone who is born in the U.S. or overseas if the birth is registered with the government.
He said the key is having a parent who has an obligation to the United States, such as Obama's mother. Bilbray said it doesn't matter that Obama's father, governed by his Kenyan nationality, was a British subject when Obama was born. "
True in so far as it goes.
"But he also explained parents can denounce a U.S. citizenship for a child, and that's why Obama critics should be hunting not for any birth documentation but the passports on which Obama traveled earlier in his life. "
NOT according to US law. If Rep. Bilbray said that, he was unware of the 1952 Immigration and Nationality Act, Title III, Chapter 3.
"Personally, Bilbray said he believes Obama was born in Hawaii, "but I don't know what his status is."
"He's a U.S. citizen until proven otherwise," he said. "
Great way of playing both ends against the middle Bilbray.
Next to the Duncan Hunters, Duke Cunningham, and Darryl Issa, Bilbray is the worst US Rep San Diego has produced.
9 August - "Help, I need somebody!" screams Dr. Orly, calling upon her Cavity Creeps to help her with that pesky lien....(malware and redirect warning)
"I NEED YOUR HELP
Posted on | August 9, 2010 | 1 Comment
My application with Justice Alito was filed on August 4. Typically they act within a day or two on applications for stay. It has been a week, no answer yet."
"Wahh! They're still not paying attention to me and are still on vacation!! Wahhh!"
"Holder is trying to attack me before Alito has a chance to respond. They filed for an abstract of Judgment and they are concerned that Alito might actualy grant me a stay, in which case they will look like fools, so they are trying to force the issue, they are trying to make my application for stay moot. "
It's called "doing their jobs".
"They are trying to hurt my whole family, by trying to actually collect those $20,000 before the Supreme court has a chance to act. "
"Hurt your whole family??" Your husband has a freaking Tesla and is an executive for a high-priced software firm. You have a very expensive house in a very expensive neighborhood.
Your family is NOT hurting for money. Your behaviour hurts them more than that $20,000 lien does.
"It is a coordinated attack: Obama-Holder Department of Justice on one side, Convicted Forger and Thief, Lisa Liberi who is working as a paralegal to Phil Berg on the other side."
"You can clearly see a coordinated effort between Obama-Holder and Berg-Liberi, working together to silence me"
Well, at least Philip Berg and Lisa Liberi are in good company.
"I represent active military"
You had *one* active duty person as a client. Who fired your butt.
"I bring forward Vattel theory,which is the most detrimental to Obama"
Actually Apuzzo did more to bring that theory into the courts. And was rejected by the courts too.
"I will appreciate donations to pay this $20,000, in case they move before I get relief from the Supreme Court"
I'm sure the ol' PayPal button will be going click click click all day now.....
"...or before a new Congress has a chance to impeach Obama, kick him out of office and convict him for this massive fraud perpetrated upon the whole nation"
"....to dream, the impossible dream...."
9 August - CNN comments on past claims of Presidential ineligibility.
"One American president's legitimacy was questioned because he was accused of wearing women's underwear.
Another's qualifications were questioned because he got drunk at an inaugural ball.
A third president didn't belong in office because critics said his rich daddy stole the election.
A recent CNN poll revealed that one out of four Americans doubt that President Obama is a citizen. Many are "birthers" who believe he is an illegitimate president because he wasn't born in this country.
But historians say Americans have long accused their presidents of being illegitimate officeholders for all sorts of dark, and bizarre, reasons."
9 August - The Ledger-Enquirer reports on the court lien against Dr. Orly.
"A legal document filed Monday in the $20,000 sanctions case against “birther” attorney Orly Taitz creates a lien on all her real property, the notice states.
The notice, titled “Abstract of Judgment,” is the first step the government has taken to collect the $20,000 plus interest in sanctions U.S. District Court Judge Clay Land imposed on Taitz in October, said Columbus attorney Frank Martin.
“This is a notice that the federal government has put a $20,000 lien plus interest on Orly Taitz,” Martin added. “This lien trumps the Internal Revenue Code. This lien has priority over everything else.”
The Abstract of Judgment creates a court record, which means the government has a basis to move forward with collecting the sanctions. That could mean the government can force the sale of Taitz’s property or potentially seize her property, Martin said.
“She may can drag it out,” Martin cautioned."
"...pardon me while I drag this out....."
9 August - Oh, and lookie what's on Dr. Orly's blog (malware and redirect warning)
"Islam is not a religion.
It may have a following of religiously indoctrinated people, but the pathological narcissist Mohammed’s cult of islam is Mohammed’s invention to build his empire via greed, power-seeking, deceit, hate, violence, war,looting, raping, theft, torture, murder, religious vilification, oppression, misogyny, and eradication of Jews.
Mohammed plagerized Jewish Torah and added his own ‘talks with angel Gabriel’ to suit his own vile disgusting agenda.
Let the useful idiots of Islam who have been duped by the sugar-coating worship Mohammed’s invented ‘god’ in their own private places, say no to Islam."
"...but we're not racists, honest!"
9 August - Tea Party favourite and congressional candidate Allen West shows his birther street cred. (Bonus Pam Geller fawning)
Somehow I didn't think that playing Little League Baseball was supposed to a requirement to be President. And what the hell is "American DNA" ???
Oh, and Allen West has his own....history. He retired from the Army as a Lt. Col. after an incident with an Iraqi policeman that he "interrogated" with a 9mm pistol. He was relieved of command, and was given an administrative Article 32 hearing that resulted in his being fined $5,000 for misconduct and assault. According to Fox News:
"An outpouring of support — the conservative blogosphere characterized West as a victim of a flawed system — and a letter signed by 95 members of Congress to the secretary of the Army may have helped West avoid more serious punishment.
Having been relieved of his command, West decided to retire from the military in 2004 after a 22-year-career. His pension and benefits intact, he moved his young family from Texas to Florida."
10 August - Dr. Orly goes "Wahh, I haven't heard back from the Supreme Court yet, wahh! Why didn't they drop their summer break and head back IMMEDIATELY to review my case, wahhh!!"(malware and redirect warning)
"SO FAR NOTHING FROM JUSTICE ALITO
Posted on | August 10, 2010"
She then goes on a rant.
"The Obama supporters might be concerned, they are intensifying attacks on me, Sarah Palin and other Tea party leaders by calling us faschists."
I think the term you're looking for is "fascist". And you're the one hanging around racists, white nationalists, and neo-nazis, not us.
"They bring up an example of the assassination of Prime Minister of Israel Rabin, and claiming that my criticism of Obama can cause some young man to assassinate Obama, just like criticism of Rabin on the right caused death of Rabin."
And you're trying to tell us that the thought of such doesn't make your panties all moist and humid???
"I am not sure, what exactly is going on."
First honest thing you've said in a while now.
10 August - More verbal diarrhea from World Nut Daily's Joseph Farah.
"Just as Richard Nixon lost the battle of Watergate because of cover-up and stonewalling, Barack Obama has lost the battle over his constitutional eligibility for the same sins."
Key difference here - Nixon WAS covering up and stonewalling. Obama has done no such thing. What we have here is a bunch of partisan hacks and conspiracy nutters CLAIMING that Obama is covering up "the truth", but they don't have any evidence to back their claims up.
"Not only is it a winning issue, it is the only issue that can effectively undo the nightmare of the Obama era in one fell swoop."
I've been hearing this for two years now. How's that working for you skippy?
"There would be no need for repealing Obamacare if it turns out his presidency was a sham from the beginning.
There would be no need to wait until Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan retire or die to see them replaced on the Supreme Court if it turns out his presidency was a sham from the beginning."
"....any day now. He'll be arrested and removed any day now. He'll be arrested...."
"There would be no need to wait until 2011 in hopes that a new Republican majority might impeach Obama if it turns out his presidency was a sham from the beginning.
There would be no need to wait until 2012 for another chance to replace Obama if it turns out his presidency was a sham from the beginning.
That's why this issue is so important."
Yeah, you were saying similar things about impeaching and overturning Clinton. How did THAT work for you?
"I've had many confidential conversations with influential people whose names you would know well"
Tony the Tiger, Cap'n Crunch, and the Trix Rabbit??
"First of all, Obama is never going to produce that document. I don't know why he won't, except that it will reveal something extraordinarily embarrassing – something completely at odds with his official narrative."
Or, more likely, he has, and he knows any further evidence provided will be ignored and disbelieved by Farah and friends.
"Secondly, even in the extremely unlikely event that Obama were to produce a birth certificate that affirmed his birth story, it will merely serve to refocus the debate on eligibility. The best-selling new book "Manchurian President" devotes an entire chapter to exploring whether Obama could be constitutionally eligible as the son of Kenyan father."
And now you know why no level of proof will make the birthers happy. Show them a "long form", and they'll fall back on the de Vattelist claim.
"In other words, this is a win-win issue for those of us who don't want to live any longer in the Obama Nation – not now, not next year, not the year after."
Yeah, you just keep telling yourself that.
"A year ago, I was a lonely voice crying in the wilderness on this issue."
That was after you confirmed Obama's COLB as legitimate, right?
"No longer. So-called "birthers" now represent a majority of the American public."
Since when is 11% a "majority"? Hell, even if you figure in "Probably born in another country", that's still only 27%.
Oh, right. You're counting the 29% who said he was "Probably born in the U.S.".
For someone who claims to be a Christian, Farah is awfully good at "bearing false witnesses".
"I predict next year you will see more than one or two state legislatures approve bills that require presidential candidates to prove eligibility before getting on the ballot. "
And I predict you'll see birthers heads explode as Obama meets those requirements, and the challenges the birthers attempt get rejected by the courts.
"You tell me if there's a better way to achieve that objective than an uprising that demands he prove what he should have been required to prove in 2008."
The problem is that none of the birther "uprisings" have shown that many people. And he HAS provided that proof - World Nut Daily confirmed it before they decided to troll the sewers of Birtherstan.
10 August - More Dr. Orly wingbat goodness. Methinks she's getting more and more into conspiracyland. (malware and redirect warning)
"I remembred that about a month ago they found a burned body of Jim Miller, a Republican elections chair, and Obama supporters tried to pin it on a Conservative retired Commander FitzPatrick, who filed a criminal complaint against Obama."
Actually quite a lot of us were careful to report there was no known connection at that time.
"I wonder, if someone is preparing to stage an exit? Keep in mind, there were no witnesses to the death of Stanley Ann Dunham and Madeline Dunham. There was no death cetificate with a name of a doctor and hospital, just like there is no birth certificate with a name of a doctor and the name of the hospital, certifying Obama’s birth. I have never seen a family, where there are no doctors present when they are being born and when they are passing away. Have you seen such a family?"
I wonder if someone really needs an intervention staged on them? Keep in mind your batshit insanity has been reflecting badly on you and your family for a while now, and maybe it's in their best interest to get you the mental help you so obviously need.
"I need to explain, that I spent over $40,000 of my own savings to run for the sec of State, in order to clean up the mess and get proper documents from the candidates come 2012.
Paying another $20,000 after all the expenses will be a heavy burden, "
Nobody forced you to file those lawsuits. Nobody forced you to mouth off to Judge Land. Nobody forced you to run for office.
Bed. Made. Lie.
"considering that I am working on this case 24/7 and don’t have time for anything else"
At least your former dental patients are getting better quality care as a result.
"Help from the public is important. Others are asking for help, but you don’t see much being done. You can see all the work here. Yesterday I got $220 on Paypal. Thank you Mr. Eldridge, Ms. Whelan and Mr. Wiltse."

10 August - Speaking of verbal diarrhea, we have Chris Strunk's "PLAINTIFF DECLARATION IN OPPOSITION TO DEFENDANT’S MOTION FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT TO DISMISS" It's 113 pages, of which 29 is the actual declaration, 5 is a affidavit from one Phillip Hans Jacobsen about his getting his mother's passport data, and the rest is repeats.
(Scribd link here)
Strunk, BTW, starts off with the Sovereign Citizen name game, writing his name as:
"Christopher-Earl: Strunk © in esse"
So we have the magic colon, a copyright symbol, and the mystic words "in esse". For 350 bonus points on the bullshitometer.
"Plaintiff opposes Defendants’ Motion for Summary Judgment on the grounds that Defendants’ agents:
a. have not made a good faith effort to search for and disclose records within the purview of their fiduciary responsibility and duty to safeguard and disclose under 5 USC §552 and related law;
By which he means "they didn't say what he wanted them to say"
"have spoliated records"
Is "spoliated" even a word?
"...associated with the commission of high crimes and misdemeanors perpetrated by John O. Brennan, Barack Hussein Obama (a.k.a. Soebarkah “Barry” Soetoro), Michelle Obama, Eric Holder, Sovereign Military Order of Malta members Hillary Clinton, Robert Mueller, Janet Napolitano, Leon Panetta, Zbigniew Brzezinski and others as yet named in violation of the U.S. Constitution,"
I'm surprised he didn't throw in Barney the Dinosaur and Skippy the Bush Kangaroo on that list.
"have spoliated records associated with the egregious violation of Article 2 Section 1 Clause 5 in regard to a cover-up involving Soebarkah “Barry” Soetoro and Barack Hussein Obama (BHO);"
Is "spoliated" even a word?
"that by spoliation and concealment have maliciously aided and abetted BHO to conceal Soebarkah Soetoro’s acts of treason"
Is "spoliation" even a word?
"and that based upon the facts associated with the documents released to date Soebarkah Soetoro is an Indonesian Citizen from six years of age till the present by the BHO adoption by Lolo S. Soetoro Mangunharjo, an Indonesian colonel in General Suharto's Armed Forces;"
There is nothing in those documents that say any such thing? What did he do, use a magic 8 ball to read them with? Because it's full of "reply hazy, ask again later"
"that by spoliation intended to conceal that Soebarkah Soetoro never renounced the allegiance to Great Britain, Kenya and Indonesia, with citizenship there that when he attained majority he failed to take an oath of allegiance to the USA and renounce all other allegiances, and that even upon his marriage to natural Born Citizen Michelle Robinson failed to take an oath of naturalization required under the Immigration and Naturalization Act and related law (INA)
People who are born in the United States don't have to take an oath of allegiance to the United States. Nor do they have to renounce any other citizenships they might have had at birth.
"f. have aided and abetted a conspiracy to deny Plaintiff substantive due process and equal treatment with 5 USC §552 along with those similarly situated to maintain a republican form of government and thereby violate Plaintiff’s 1st, 5th, 9th and 10th Amendment right to protection associated with life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness"
"...Wahhh! I'm unhappy that Obama is President!! Wahhhh!"
"16. As shown in the record of this proceeding that after January 27, 2009, when Barack Hussein Obama in esse was notified he is fired, fired fired by Plaintiff"
And you're still batshit crazy, crazy, crazy.
"19. That Plaintiff filed with the Court the evidence of the pattern of concealment by Barack Hussein Obama as the discovery of the conspiracy reported by NewsMax in the press on January 12, 2009, with the theft of the DOS Data Disks containing the Obama passport data from the National Archives believed to be associated with the April 2008 assassination of the material witness Federal Officer Quarles Harris Jr"
You mean the petty criminal and identity thief Leiutenant (note the spelling) Quarles Harris Jr? Who wasn't any sort of federal officer??
"p. On an unspecified date in 1971: Barry Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro returns from Indonesia to Hawaii alone, unaccompanied by his mother (Source: "Dreams from My Father," p. 53). Obama asserts he hands his grandparents his U.S. passport upon arrival in Honolulu (Source: Dreams from My Father, p. 54) Passport No. F777788, issued July 19, 1965 as amended in 1967 since he is named therein that he used for such travel and not the August 13 1968 renewal where BHO is removed."
Well, a sane person would therefore conclude he used his own passport, not his mothers. Particularly since his mother didn't come with him.
"q. Nothing in the released FOIA State Department documents indicates Dunham Soetoro assisted her son in obtaining a U.S. passport in Indonesia after she amended her passport to remove his name.
Maybe because such things would be part of Obama's passport records and NOT Stanley Ann Dunham's??
"i. At the same time Barry Soetoro was attending Occidental [College in Los Angeles, 1979-81], BHO used the name Barry Soetoro and an Indonesian passport issued under the same name,"
Funny that all public information from Occidental College and interviews with classmates all say "Barack Obama" or "Barry Obama", and not "Soetoro".
"r. When Barry Soetoro graduated from the private Punahou High School in Hawaii in 1979 and transferred to Occidental College in Los Angeles. Punahou High School was also the alma mater of another US Senator, Hiram Bingham III of Connecticut, who was said to be the inspiration for Indiana Jones, the movie character popularized by George Lucas and Steven Spielberg. At the time, the CIA was engaged in a major recruiting campaign, including on college campuses, after Admiral Stansfield Turner, the CIA director, was ordered by President Jimmy Carter to clean up the agency after previous scandals."
What on earth is he babbling about? Sen. Hiram Bingham III attended O'ahu College (later Punahou School) in the late 1800's!!
"During her grandson's presidential campaign in 2008, Madelyn Dunham refused all media interview requests. She died in Hawaii two days before her grandson was elected president."
Gee, I can't imagine why someone who was terminally ill and in pain wouldn't want to deal with a group of nosy reporters??
10 August - An interesting article in "Veterans Today" on "The Transformation of the American Conservative Movement into Fascism"
"Obama’s multiracial background was crucial in cultivating resentment among the shock troops. Those who rejected Obama’s legitimacy to serve as president on the basis of his background gave birth to the “Birther” movement that sought to challenge his citizenship. The movement’s most visible figure, and therefore the most eccentric, was Orly Taitz, a dentist and self-trained lawyer who had immigrated from the former Soviet republican of Moldova to Israel before settling in the conservative bastion of Orange County, California. Convinced by claims on the far-right Web site WorldNetDaily that Obama planned to create a “civilian national security force,” Taitz told me she “realized that Obama was another Stalin–it’s a cross between Stalinist USSR and Hitler’s Germany.”
After becoming transfixed by online conspiracy theories claiming Obama’s family had forged his birth certificate in Hawaii, Taitz snapped into action. She filed a lawsuit in November 2008 with California Secretary of State Debra Bowen demanding an investigation into Obama’s eligibility to serve as president. Taitz’s plaintiff in the case was Wiley Drake, an Orange County radio preacher and former second vice president of the Southern Baptist Convention who once publicly prayed for Obama’s death. While her lawsuit went nowhere, and subsequent suits earned her angry rebukes from judges, Taitz became an instant media sensation, delivering heavily accented screeds against Obama before friendly interviewers from Sean Hannity to CNN’s Lou Dobbs, who Taitz called her “greatest supporter” and who was eventually fired as an indirect result of his hosting of her.
In March 2009, Texas Rep. Randy Neugebauer signed on to a Birther bill proposing that future presidential candidates must prove their citizenship before becoming eligible to campaign. The Birther movement had found its voice in government and made an indelible impact on the Republican grassroots. By June 2009, 28 percent of Republican respondents to a Kos/Research 2000 poll said they thought Obama wasn’t born in the United States, while 30 percent “weren’t sure.” “Obama should be in the Big House,” Taitz shrieked to me, “not the White House!”"
10 August - The OC Weekly reports on Dr. Orly's current attempt to scam her supporters into paying that pesky $20,000
"But while the MSM isn't watching, the Orange County dentist says she is on the verge of winning with federal prosecutors (but not Attorney General Eric Holder because he's part of Obama's plot). She says they will "convict [Obama] for this massive fraud perpetrated on the whole nation."
There is a slight problem, however.
She says she needs $20,000 immediately to pay for her ability to keep the Obama conspiracy in front of the U.S. Supreme Court.
"I need your help," Taitz wrote in an email to supporters this morning.
Act now because she says Obama is trying "to silence" her.
Conveniently, her website accepts credit cards
"Your donations to the cause are much appreciated," wrote the unsuccessful 2010 Republican Party primary candidate for California secretary of state."
And in comments, someone points this out:
Let's see, Orly drives a Lexis, lives in a multimillion home, the family owns a number of cars including a Tesla car worth over $100,000. Her family is worth something like $25 million. She's and her family are currently vacationing in Europe. And she expects folks living on social sucecuity to pay for her screw-ups?
BTW, despite what her site says, donations to her foundation are NOT tax deductible because it has never received 501 c approval by the IRS.
