I'm on and off "vacation" (okay a staycation) the next few days, so updates *might* not be every day. I'll try and keep up though.
The biggest thing in this entry though, IMHO, is that Dr. Orly finally drops all pretense of being anything other than a racist, hate-filled bigot. Several entries from her website deal with diatribes against African-Americans, as well as calling for hate crimes against Muslims. (Ironically enough, what she's calling for could be considered a hate crime against Jews if they were done to her as well. But she simply can't SEE that though her own hatred and bigotry.
She also gets told "no" by the Supreme Court. Again.
Elsewhere in birtherstan, we have more examples of far-right extremists wanting their civil war and rebellion fixes. A Kansas GOP candidate gets himself in hot water for tweeting a story from Bob Pinkstaff. Gary Kreep actually does a moderately sane submission in Keyes/Barnett v Obama. Sharon Meroni is trying to teach grandma to suck eggs. Lakin's supporters are pissed because Lakin is being treated like, well, a criminal suspect. The SPLC reports on the Sovereign Citizens movement. Margaret Hemenway is trying for John McCain and a binky. We have video of Obama's passport (gee, he must have submitted something like, oh, I dunno, a COLB for that...) The Fantasy Tiddlywinks League has a new idea - try to get the FBI on their side! The birthers think that harassing and threatening Lakin's Commanding General is a Really Good Idea. And Dr. Orly still thinks she's going to become Secretary of State in California.
3 August - Media Matters reports on the far right's fetish for rebellion
"This is not the first time Owens has openly discussed armed revolution. After the passage of health care reform, Owens expressed"some hope" that the bill would be ruled unconstitutional and Democrats would be voted out of office so that Owens and "freshly-experienced combat veterans" would not be forced to resort to the "morally-required alternative."
3 August -An article at "The Daily Kos" about the continues the Media Matters article on some right-wing sites.
"This guy agrees. If your political party gets bad press, kill the press!
I abhor voilence, yet I increasingly feel it is inevitable. When it comes, the first targets should be the MSM.
And this guy is all fired up about Obamacare. That way, when he shoots someone he can be sure that even if they live, they'll go broke
I have been saying for a while now that if the Republicans win the house this November... repeal ObamaCare.....If the Republicans botch it, the only way will be armed rebellion.
Generally, this stuff is as embarrassing as your freshman yearbook picture:
The skirmishes will start out small in fly-over country, and there will be serious bloodshed as the Government attempts to quell the uprisings. Remember that match being lit? The Governments’ use of deadly force on her citizens will ignite the rage that will sweep across the nation, like a wildfire on a hot, dry prairie in August.....At the very least, the major metropolitan areas will be isolated (they are already surrounded by Red) and there will be no escape. To get anything in or out of a Blue county, it has to go through Red at some point. Good luck with that. When the Blue areas are sufficiently starved, they will come looking for food, and they will either be set right to the facts, pardoned or pacified. If not, we will refresh the tree of liberty with their blood!
Maybe that's not as racist and genocidal as it sounds
Those nice safe, white suburbs are a sheep pen totally unprepared for the wolves’ assault.
OK it is...
"First there are the Randian libtard mutant libertarian who say "Obama and Bush are the same," so kill them all. Riiiightt, except at the moment "killing them all" will mean killing 100% Democrats. These folks want you to believe that they were just as angry at Bush, but it's just a natter of timing that they are going to shoot Democrats. Just coincidence. "
Yeah, that is funny, isn't it??
"Second there are the folks who say that Obama is some uniquely bestial and hideous form of evil. These guys say that the Democrats are the "fat cats," who must be crushed so that the Founding Fathers' tax cuts for the rich can be extended, because that is where the interests of the regular people are. Seriously, it's hard to believe, but they expect the Tea Baggers to throw themselves onto bayonets to protect some debutantes trust fund."
But then the far right has been very good at going against their self-interests in favour of the wealthy. The irony being that Obama lowered tax rates for the majority of Americans, which helps them directly.....
"Having said that I took the oath also and am prepared and hoping if the staus quo doesn't change in November change will be forthcoming. "
In other words, "if we don't win, we'll start a civil war and YOU'LL BE SORRY!!"
"Third there is a group which the wingnuts don't want to talk about - the Christian Reconstructionists, who are likely to touch off megachurch vs megachurch clashes much like mosques at war with each other in Iraq. Sharron Angle is pandering to this crowd."
As does Sarah Palin.
"Finally, there is a fourth group which is the elephant in the living room - the folks that have been prepping for Helter Skelter for years, the people that have been hoping for a national crisis so they have excuse to kill black people and other minorities. These are mean little bastards, and they don't just admire the Nazi SS, they even have the uniforms. Where are they? They are keeping a low profile, but they provide a lot of the the energy on the right. These are some nasty little douches."
And gee, isn't it surprising how many anti-Obama pictures, claims, etc., all have their foundation at places like "Stormfront", isn't it?
12 August - Kanas GOP Candidate Mike Pompeo got himself into a bit of hot water it seems.
He tweeted out to his followers the following message:
"Here’s a good read about the Team Pompeo campaign: http://bit.ly/cF05mp"
The link went to a (since removed) by our old friend and Fitzpatrick supporter Bob Pinkstaff, and was a racist diatribe against Pompeo's opponent, State Rep Raj Goyle (who's Indian-American)
(Bold face from article)
"As I was listening to radio station 1330 about a week ago, the radio station did an interview with goyle and should be on tape and available to the public. The interviewer asked him what religion or faith he belonged to and this guy mumbled and stumbled around the question, never directly answering it. Like his comrad obama, he wouldn’t give an answer, only that he was not a Christian. This guy could be a muslim, a hindu, a buddhist etc who knows, only God, the shadow and …goyle knows! One thing’s for sure … goyle is not a Christian!
Since the 2008 election of the evil muslim communist USURPER, barack hussein obama, political candidate “BIRTH CERTIFICATE & RELIGION” information is now a vital part of the vetting/nomination/election process for any and all American citizens seeking political office.
Just like his evil muslim communist USURPER comrad, barack hussein obama, This goyle character is just another “turban topper” we don’t need in congress or any political office that deals with the U.S. Constitution, Christianity and the United States of America!!!
Pinkstaff seems to have problems with that whole "Freedom of Religion" thing in the Constitution.
Goyle's campaign said about it:
"The Goyle campaign put out a press release this morning, saying the tweet went “beyond the rules of engagement in politics. This violates the principles and core values of Kansans.”
And Pompeo tried to do damage control.
"We spoke to Pompeo spokesman Josh Wells, who said that the tweet was a mistake; it was supposed to go to this post. According to Wells, both posts came in the same Google alert, so there was a copy-and-paste error. He said that they recognized the mistake “within minutes” and took it down. The Pompeo campaign did later tweet the correct post, but that too is now gone. Wells said he didn’t know why it was down. He added that the Pompeo campaign does not endorse Pinkstaff’s views in any way."
Yeah, sure they don't......
12 August - As a follow up to Dr. Orly's appeal in Keyes/Barnett v Obama, Gary Kreep (and his assistant, Christopher Tucker), file their half the of the appeal
(Scribd link here)
31 pages total, with no attachments or affidavits.
"This appeal is brought as a result of a judgment of dismissal of the First Amended Complaint filed by APPELLANTS and the group of Plaintiffs represented by TAITZ., RESPONDENTS (CT 1158). The Court’s order granting RESPONDENTS’ Motion to Dismiss was in error because RESPONDENTS failed to establish that there was no triable cause of action on the critical Constitutional issues of whether OBAMA has met the eligibility requirements to serve as President of the United States."
I dunno, I thought Judge Carter said "no" quite well.
" The Court in Hollander v. McCain noted “a candidate or his political party has standing to challenge the inclusion of an allegedly ineligible rival on the ballot, on the theory that doing so hurts the candidate's or party's own chances of prevailing in the election.” (Hollander v. McCain (2008) 566 F.Supp.2d 63)."
And the court told Markham Robinson "no" on that case as well, didn't they?
"Here, DRAKE was a candidate for Vice President of the United States running against OBAMA in the 2008 election. As a Vice Presidential candidate, DRAKE has an interest in having a fair competition for that position"
Actually he was running against Biden (and Palin) as VP, not Obama.....
"OBAMA entered this race without having met the eligibility requirements for the office of President of the United States"
"The fact that KEYES and DRAKE were only on the ballot in one state for the office of President of the United States and, therefore, could not have reached the requisite 270 Electoral votes to win the office does not nullify their injury."
Actually it does quite well.
"APPELLANTS allege that OBAMA is ineligible to serve as President of the United States by reason of not being a natural born citizen as required by the U.S. Constitution (hereinafter referred to as “U.S. Const.”), Article (hereinafter referred to as “Art.”) 2, Section 1"
Which they define as??
"Here, in like manner, APPELLANTS allege that OBAMA is legally disabled by his birth status. Therefore, all votes cast in favor of the OBAMA/BIDEN joint and unseverable ticket by the California Electors should be deemed null and void, since the votes were cast for an individual ineligible to run for the office of President of the United States of America."
Yeah, good luck with that.
"APPELLANTS seek a Court declaration that the votes cast by the California Electors in favor of the OBAMA/BIDEN ticket were of no legal force or effect."
For someone who says they don't want a particular party installed as President, they certainly seem to trying to convince the court to overturn 2008 and give the Presidency retroactively to McCain / Palin.
The funny thing about this is? While they keep saying Obama is ineligible, nowhere I can find does it say *why* he is. No mention of supposed Kenyan birthplaces, Indonesian citizenships, and barely a whiff of de Vattel. Seems odd to me to try the "he's ineligible because we say he is" defence.
12 August - Some video goodness with Sharon Meroni trying to tell the Illinois Board of Elections their jobs.
It's interesting to listen to get getting more and more snotty and obnoxious as the video goes on, and she starts to lose it at the 3:00 minute. At 4:10 she goes into this finger-banging tirade:
"I am really not a litigious person, I don't want to go to court. But I will! I promise you! No matter what it takes! No matter what it takes! Someone died for me today, and for you and you and....."
I'm sure that impressed them....not at all.
12 August - Lakin and his supporters are pissed because the Army feels the need to escort someone who's deliberately missed movement to and from court.
"American Patriot Foundation has asked supporters of LTC Lakin to contact his commanding General, MG Carla Hawley-Bowland via (redacted), fax (redacted), and email: (redacted), and ask her to insure that LTC Brodsky cease interfering in her chain of command. You should do this after 9a eastern on Friday, Aug 12, 2010."
You know, pissing off your commanding general by having your supporters do an Orly Taitz is NOT a smart thing to do. MG Hawley-Bowland is going to want this smarmy little blue falcon out of her command ASAP.
"The afternoon before the hearing, LTC Steven Brodsky told LTC Lakin's counsel that Lakin must report hours before the hearing to his duty post at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in order for him to be "transported under escort" to make sure he showed up at the arraignment "to avoid embarrassing his unit." Brodsky rejected all pleas from Lakin's counsel that this was not merely highly unusual and that an enlisted man facing similar charges would not suffer such indignity, but that there was zero chance that Lakin would not attend a hearing when he had, quite literally "invited [his] own court martial." Brodsky told Lakin's counsel that an Army Colonel had been detailed to be Lakin's escort and that he, Brodsky, would not reconsider. However, Brodsky is a judge advocate, and as such his job is to prosecute LTC Lakin. He has no role -or at least should have no role-in deciding the manner in which Lakin relates to his commanders, and vice versa."
Funny, they're treating him like, well, an officer being court-martialed.....
"Lakin is a Lt. Colonel with almost 18 years of unblemished service to the Army"
Yeah, pity he decided to flush it all down the crapper.
"Immediately prior to Lakin's refusal to deploy, his commander, COL Dale Block wrote of Lakin "Dr. Lakin is an extremely talented, highly knowledgeable senior Army clinician...he can always be counted on to provide me with expert advice...LTC Lakin is clearly one of the top clinicians in the Northern Regional Medical Command. He has superb clinical skills, rapport with patients and staff...Terry is the best choice for tough assignments...Already on the promotion list to Colonel, he should be groomed for positions of greater responsibility." COL Block concluded by describing LTC Lakin as "best qualified" and recommended that LTC Lakin be selected for duty as a Clinic Commander (in other words, Block's own position)."
And then he publically violated direct orders from his immediate chain of command, and showed his unfitness for further promotion or responsibility.
12 August - Oh look. More lies from The Globe Magazine.
"In a bombshell world exclusive, GLOBE reveals that President Barack Obama has a phony Social Security number and is embroiled in an elaborate scheme to conceal that he is NOT a natural born U.S. citizen!"
And it's even old, long-since debunked garbage as well
"Sources say the shocking new evidence will prove for once and for all that Obama's presidency is illegal"
Floyd Brown again?? Or some other right wing nutjob?
"It's must reading for every American!"
"....with the IQ of floor wax that is"
13 August - Charming supporters Lakin has....

"Comment by Louis McCarten 14 hours ago
Obama is as we all know is an illegal immigrant from a third world country (Kenya). What he has introdiced is third world repression, as evinced from the US government's treatment of Ltc. Lakin. I think we can all assess that Obama ordered Ltc. Lakin to be tortured in order to gag and prevent him from challenging Obama's illegal "presidency."
Someone MIGHT point out that the Obama "administration" is now stooping to torturing American citizens who challenge Soetoro's usurped presidency. Tasering is more of a torture than waterboarding is, that's for sure.
Note that Lakin has committed no actual crime, merely an infraction of military policy. And look at all the crimes committed by that deadly Marxist/Islamic assclown Obama/Soetoro--including the stealing of the office of the US presidency."
So escorting someone being court-martialed is "torture"??
And missing movement is a very real crime according to the UCMJ.
12 August - The Southern Poverty Law Center releases a chilling report on the Sovereign Citizen movement.
"It would be tempting to dismiss the violence that took place that day as an isolated event — an unstable father and son who exploded in a moment of vicious, unexplained fury. The truth, however, is more frightening. Jerry Kane and his young son were active participants in the sprawling subculture of "sovereign citizens" in America: hundreds of thousands of far-right extremists who believe that they — not judges, juries, law enforcement or elected officials — get to decide which laws to obey and which to ignore, and who don't think they should have to pay taxes. While law enforcement officers may disagree on how to deal with or even label this extremist subculture, one thing is certain: it's trouble. The sovereign movement is growing fast, and its partisans are clogging up the courts with their indecipherable filings. When cornered, many of them lash out in rage, frustration and, in the most extreme cases, acts of deadly violence.
It is difficult to say precisely how many sovereigns there are in the United States today, in part because there is no central leadership and no organized group that members can join — instead, there are a variety of local leaders with individualized takes on sovereign citizen ideology and techniques. Those who are attracted to this bizarre subculture typically attend a seminar or two, or visit one of the thousands of websites and online videos on the subject, and then simply choose how to act on what they've learned. Some start by testing sovereign ideology with small offenses such as driving without a license, while others proceed directly to taking on the IRS as tax protesters."
Oh, and lookie here:
"Most early sovereigns, and some of those who are still on the scene, believed that being white was a prerequisite to becoming a sovereign citizen. They argued that the 14th Amendment to the Constitution, which gave blacks U.S. citizenship, also made black Americans permanently subject to federal and state governments, unlike themselves."
Remember all the birtherstani who like claiming Obama's "only a 14th Amendment citizen"??
Wonder where they got that idea?? Looks like from their buddies in the Sovereign Citizen movement. To cite the report:
"14th Amendment citizen
Sovereign citizens describe 14th Amendment citizens as subject to federal and state governments, unlike themselves. Because the amendment gave citizenship to freed slaves, a racist variant of sovereign-citizen theory holds that blacks are subject to the governments and that being white is a prerequisite to being a sovereign citizen. Others claim all state citizens were converted by the constitutional amendment to "Federal Citizens," who can only be freed by a process known as "asseveration.""
And this sounds.....familar:
Pseudo-legal courts set up to hear matters concerning sovereign citizens, sometimes also called "freemen." They have been used to put enemies on trial for such offenses as treason, rule on matters of interest to sovereigns and, frequently, to formalize citizens' declarations of sovereignty, a process often known as asseveration."
Under leaders, we have a familar name or two:
"James Timothy Turner, 54
Tim Turner burst onto the redemption scene three years ago, offering a series of very popular seminars that promise attendees that they can pay off their mortgage, credit card debt, and income tax bills using the "power of negative averments." He also claims to have cured leukemia in five days. Turner's programs teach his clients to file dozens of meaningless court documents, and when the opposing parties don't respond accordingly, to file absurdly large retaliatory property liens against them. For example, in one foreclosure case in which Turner was not even a party, he filed nine fraudulent liens totaling more than $158 billion against the bank, its attorneys, the court trustee, and miscellaneous other participants. While Turner told his followers that he won the case, he was actually sanctioned $22,500 by the court. Most recently, Turner has taken over the leadership of the Guardians of the Free Republics, a group that earlier this year fruitlessly demanded that all 50 governors step down and now claims to have established common-law courts in all 50 states. According to his followers, Turner has canceled his seminar schedule and was in hiding at press time. In the past, Turner has worked as both a commercial fisherman and a FEMA employee."
This must have been written before he declared himself "President"
12 August - The Pest and eFail publishes an extended whine by Margaret Hemenway demanding to know why Sen. John McCain won't come to their aid.
"Senator McCain: Come to the aid of your country
IF YOU NEEDED TWO U.S. CITIZEN PARENTS TO QUALIFY, WHY DIDN’T YOUR OPPONENT, AND WHY DIDN’T YOU QUESTION IT?"
Nice little tip of the hat to the de Vattelist crowd there.
"During the 2008 presidential campaign, the media (the original “birthers”) hounded you about your “natural born” status- a law professor in Arizona even made the outrageous assertion, completely unjustified, that you were not “natural born” because of your birth in Panama. As a result, you released your original birth certificate."
Actually no he never did. There was even a court case that tried to force the issue (filed by Markham Robinson, remember him?), that was tossed out for exactly the same reasons the courts toss the birther cases against Obama.
"The controversy grew so heated that your Senate colleagues held a hearing and passed a unanimous, albeit non-binding resolution proclaiming you were “natural born” and therefore eligible to run for President. Senator Obama and Senator Clinton even co-sponsored this resolution. The Senate resolution was conspicuously silent on Senator Obama’s “natural born” status."
Well, McCain was born in Panama, and therefore some would question that status (though with a US citizen parent, he does qualify). Obama was born in Hawaii, and therefore there is no question about that status except from conspiracy-minded asshats.
"Unfortunately, you never asked your rival to produce his original birth certificate– even though a roiling controversy still surrounds his birthplace"
His campaign looked into the charges - and decided there was no substance or credibility to them. Next?
"with no hospital in Hawaii willing to claim to be his place of birth"
They can't. HIPPA.
"..and recently, a senior elections clerk offered to testify in court that everyone in his office knew"
Except Tim Adams wasn't a "senior elections clerk", he was a temp hired from Manpower, and the elections office wouldn't have those records in the first place.
"Three prominent Kenyans have declared Obama was born in Kenya, contrary to his official birth narrative– including his paternal step-grandmother, Sarah Obama"
Except she didn't say that. She said, quite clearly, he was born in Hawaii.
"Army Lieutenant Colonel Terrence Lakin is being court-martialed for asking Obama to produce an original birth certificate- consistent with the oath he swore as an officer- of loyalty to the U.S. Constitution. "
No, he's being court-martialed for ignoring orders from his immediate chain of command, consistant with a violation of his oath as an officer.
"You are ranking on the Senate Armed Services Committee with oversight over the Department of Defense- it is incumbent upon you to raise your voice- to ask Obama to release his birth records and to avert this court-martial and the ruination of a fine officer’s career- a man who has served 18 years, was selected for promotion to Colonel- and who has deployed multiple times, including to combat zones, in service to his country."
"....help me Obi-Wan McCain, you're our only hope"
"f we do not resolve this controversy now, you might expect that soldiers who were part of Obama’s surge, who will come home missing arms and legs, and like others before them who served in uniform, will undoubtedly file lawsuits in other courtrooms, asking judges if they have standing. This will rip apart the Armed Forces- it is causing dissension already among our people and emotions are escalating."
The only people "ripping apart the Armed Forces" are people like Lakin, Cook, Easterling, and others like them. And among the rank and file, they're being treated like the "blue falcons" they are.
And it looks like the readers have made up their minds about McCain:
" Papoose says:
Thursday, August 12, 2010 at 8:38 PM
If two married American parents give birth to a child while in China, does that make the baby Chinese?
Do they really think we were all going around thinking that John McCain was Panamanian?
John McCain betrayed his Country, in real time, in living color. He continues to do so every single day of his life.
bogus potus in not a full-blooded American ~ and that half is caucasian, whether he admits it or not. He has stolen the honor and title of the First true African American President, whomever he or she might be.
Thief. Liar. Charlatan."
If I'm reading this correctly, "Papoose" is claiming that only Obama's caucasian half is American.....
" Unbamboozleus says:
Thursday, August 12, 2010 at 3:16 PM
McCain knew from the start that neither he nor Obama were eligible to be POTUS. There will be no answer to this letter because McCain has been in full collusion with the defrauding of America from the get go. He was a patriot and a hero at one time but something apparently persuaded him to sell his loyalties – and it is We the People who are paying the price."
Yeah, but I betcha if McCain had won, these birthers wouldn't be anywhere near as loud or angry as they are over Obama....
13 August - Obama's passport - reveled!
The funny thing is that to get ANY US passport, blue "tourist", brown "official", or black "diplomatic", Obama would have have provided the State Department proof of US citizenship - usually a birth certificate or other official state document. And don't the birthers keep insisting once can't even play little league - much less get a passport - with a COLB??
Gee, they're wrong *again*. Though I fully expect them to explain it away. Maybe Polland / Polarik can write a long rambling mass of crap that "proves" the passport is a forgery based on the video. Mind you, it would be meaningless, but that hasn't stopped him before.
13 August - A look though "The Globe Magazine's" 12 June fishwrap starts out with:
1) repeating Tim Adams debunked claims. (And no mention of Adams saying these things at a White Nationalist convention and radio show. The Globe must have gone to the same school of journalism as World Nut Daily)
2) An unnamed "beltway insider", which more than likely only exists in the Globe's pages.
3) A claim by unnamed "experts" that Obama is ineligible due to his father not being a US citizen.
4) A "Kenya Family Portrait" they claim dates to 1987, they offer as "proof" Obama was born in Kenya, with no explanation as to why it's "proof"
5) Repeat of the Sarah Obama claim, calling her his grandmother rather than step-grandmother, and repeating the lie she claimed she was in the delivery room, (transcript and tape of the interview states quite clearly she said he was born in Hawaii). It also calls her "Sarah Hussein Obama" Hussein is a male name, not a female.
6) "Critics question the validity" of his Hawaiian COLB.
They spend two paragraphs with Hawaiian officials rebutting these claims, but end with Tim Adams again.
On second thought, don't wrap fish in it. It already stinks.
13 August - Haven't heard much from the Fantasy Tiddlywinks League of late, particularly since Manning's play trial was a bust and some of the tiddlywinks players came down with a bad case of the cRAPs. So what is their latest? A Criminal Complaint filed with the FBI, written by PUMA birther Arnie Rosner
They don't aim small, do they?
We have the Criminal Complaint and it is ready to go. Arnie Rosner along with American Grand Jury will deliver to Robert S. Mueller, Director of the FBI, a written COMPLAINT charging Obama and his shadow government with fraud upon the people, corruption, treason and theft, in addition to personal identity fraud by Obama himself.
They even have a letter in PDF format for you to read (dated 17 August 2010, curiously enough)
(PDF letter here)
(Scribd link here in case they pull it)
"We the undersigned concerned citizens, have grave concerns about the existence of a domestic enemy currently controlling our government."
"Wahhh There's an uppity darkie in our WHITE House!!"
"The lawless subversion of our Constitutionally based government was converted into a competing form of government through other than constitutional means."
So they're saying a presidential election is unconstitutional then??
"This bloodless coup was facilitated by members of Congress who chose to engage in a conspiracy, encouraged by the extreme levels of corruption within the Obama Administration."
You forgot "majority of American voters" too.
"We believe the purpose of such an agenda is to undermine and destroy our current form of government."
That's nice. Do you believe in the tooth fairy and Santa Claus as well?
"We see evidence of the progress of this strategy on a daily basis"
"Wahhh! The uppity darkie is STILL THERE!!!"
"We are confident proper investigation by the FBI will expose the true nature of those participating in this conspiracy"
I think the FBI had only one agent who's specialty was wingbat conspiracies, but I don't think Fox Mulder is available anymore.
"Since we believe you to be a man of great integrity and ethics, we are counting on you to perform the functions of your job, consistent with your role as director of the FBI."
"...help us Obi Wan Muller, you're our only hope..."
And who gets copies of this steaming pile??
"US Attorney General Eric Holder"
I thought you people thought of him as Satan's right hand man?
"Chief Justice John Roberts"
You mean the guy who swore in Obama?
"DOJ Inspector General Glenn Fine, Inspector General, Civil Rights & Civil Liberties Complaints"
Funny to have a bunch of bigots complaining to a civil rights inspector.
"Admiral Mike Mullen"
Still wanting your military coup, eh?
"Chair of Senate Judiciary Committee Patrick Leahy"
Yeah, good luck with that.
"...one of these things, is not like the other...."
"The Post & Email"
"...one of these things, is not quite the same....."
So what are their complaints?? Well, three pages, most of which is the same debunked lies we've come to expect from Birtherstani who could care less about "facts", "truth", or "reality".
"Obama campaign donor lists -
The provision of Obama campaign donor lists to ACORN in 2007 and 2008, more complete than the ones he provided to the FEC. ACORN used the lists to raise money for Obama’s election from donors who had already maxed out their legally allowable contributions."
And, of course, their only proof that said lists exist was that Obama won. Because they can't believe the majority of US voters voted for the uppity darkie.
"Voter fraud including voter intimidation -
Widespread voter fraud including voter intimidation, ballot stuffing, falsified documents, and threats of violence against Hillary Clinton supporters committed by the Obama campaign and ACORN during the 2008 Democrat primary election. For more information see my CFP article How Obama Used an Army of Thugs to Steal the 2008 Democratic Party Nomination."
Yeah, funny how PUMA never managed to prove that claim either.....
"Not constitutionally eligible to serve as President -
Obama’s refusal to release his long form birth certificate which would show conclusively that he is a dual citizen and therefore not constitutionally eligible to serve as President. Obama’s college records, which have also not been released, would also contain information regarding his dual citizenship status.
Cute. Complaining that Obama never released his "long form" birth certificate and then in the same sentence saying it doesn't matter anyway because of the whole de Vattelist thing.
Lying to the American people by promising they could keep their healthcare coverage if they wanted to, when in reality tens of millions will be forced out of their current plans.
And your proof of this is??
Oh, right, you don't have any.
"abuse of power -
Bullying BP to set up a $20 billion slush fund to compensate Gulf Coast businesses and residents affected by the oil spill, to be administered by an Obama political appointee without any judicial or congressional oversight.
"Wahhh! That uppity darkie is picking on poor little BP!! Wahhh!"
"Abuse of Power -
Recess appointment of Donald Berwick as head of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services without even a token attempt to put him through the Congressional nomination process, signaling that Congress’s constitutional obligation to vet presidential appointees means nothing to Obama. The same can be said of the 30+ Obama administration czars."
So, did you complain about Bush II's recess appointments or his 47 "Czars" appointed during his terms in office? No? Why?
"Abuse of Power -
The Sherry Sherrod incident.. the original judgment of “Pigford v. Glickman” in 1999 only applied to a total of 16,000 black farmers. in 2008, a junior Senator got a law passed to reopen the case and allow more black farmers to sue for funds. Senator was Barack Obama.
You mean Shirley Sherrod, and how she was hounded by the right wing including known right wing liar Andrew Breitbart??
Abuse of Power -
The White House sham investigation of BP’s involvement in the release of the mass murdering Lockerbie bomber from prison. The Obama administration not only knew beforehand of the Scottish government’s plan to set Abdel Baset al-Megrahi free on “compassionate” grounds, they even sent a letter to Scottish authorities stating their preference for his remaining in Scotland over his transfer to a Libyan prison.
So you're complaining because the Obama administration wanted him kept IN prison and voiced their disapproval in releasing him??
"Abuse of Power -
The hardest to prosecute in court,"
Maybe because it's complete bullshit?
but worst crime of all that Obama has perpetrated against the American people is the economic tyranny that his socialist policies have wreaked upon our nation. While Obama has been living the life of a king, including frequent 5 star vacations,"
Remind me again, HOW many vacations did Bush II take in office??
Here's a hint - 487 days at Camp David, and 490 days at his Crawford ranch. 977 days, or 2 years 9 months of his 8 years in office at those two locations ALONE. Over 25% of his Presidency was spent on vacation. Add other trips, and Bush spent over 33% of his terms in office on vacation.
Obama has spent 26 days during his first year in office (Bush II took 69 days, Bush I look 40 days, Reagan took 42 days. Clinton took 21 days, Carter took 19 days. In Obama's first 18 months, he took 33 days as opposed to Bush II's 96 days.
Kinda puts things in perspective, doesn't it?
"dozens of concerts at the White House and endless rounds of golf, all paid for by taxpayer money"
Ah, so you're upset that the uppity usurping darkie is....being treated like the President.
"—the increased transportation and security costs alone are in the millions of dollars"
Gee, I wonder why....
"—he has called for the rest of us to endure economic sacrifice. The annual trillion dollar deficits and borrowing of 41 cents of every dollar of government spending by Obama is leading to unsustainable and potentially catastrophic debt."
And WHO did Obama inherit that debt from?? Oh, right, the same guy who spent 1/3 of his presidency on vacation

I smell "sovereign citizen"....
"So why doesn’t the FBI walk in and arrest him and the whole White House staff?"
Maybe that whole pesky "they haven't broken any laws" thing?
"After all, they have admitted they are there to destroy the nation instead of protecting it from enemies by their membership in organizations that openly have declared that as their mission. They have shown they are aiding and abetting, have not only committed fraud, but have been caught red-handed committing felonies, least of all the multiplicity of use of Social Security Numbers for one person, and the other 25 (and counting) items on the “treason” list."
Am I the only one who thinks it.....ironic.....that a "sovereign citizen" would be worried about social security numbers??

13 August - You know Lakin's claims he was threatened with a tazing by one of his Army escorts? According to Talking Points Muckraker, not so much....
"After the hearing, my lawyers asked COL Craig for permission for me to speak to the press, since both CNN and NBC had sent camera crews, but she rudely refused, and she ordered me back into her vehicle to be transported back to Walter Reed."
Wait a minute! I thought Lakin was disobeying all orders until Obama provided his birth certificate?? So orders not to speak to the press (except his handlers) he'll obey, but orders to deploy to a war zone to provide medical care to our troops, not so much?
Yeah, he's a blue falcon alright.
"Late, Late Update Army Public Affairs Officer LTC Robert Manning told TPM that he was "there at the arraignment and I did not hear" LTC Brodsky's alleged comments. "I was there at the proceedings the entire time," he said, adding that the Army is "committed to ensuring that Lt. Col. Lakin receives fair treatment and due process."
"Protecting his rights is paramount to the command," Manning said, but "I did not witness or see any of that.""
It looks like Lakin and Hemenway might be lying.
What a shock.
13 August - Military Law Blog CAAFlog comments on Lakin's appearance on the G. Gordon Liddy show.
"LTC Lakin and his civilian defense counsel, Paul Jensen, were on G. Gordon Liddy’s radio show today, along with WorldNetDaily poobah Joseph Farah"
There's a surprise.....not. I get the feeling that Farah has some involvement in the Lakin thing beyond simply his usual far right dishonesty.
"First, LTC Lakin himself spoke far, far more during this interview than he has during the previous media appearances by the Lakin/Jensen team that I’ve seem or heard. "
That is a surprise. Usually Lakin's been Jensen's muppet.
"After a break, Mr. Liddy told his radio audience that LTC Lakin wasn’t in the studio because he “had to excuse himself for a few minutes. I believe he’s in the men’s room.” Mr. Liddy took advantage of LTC Lakin’s head call to encourage listeners to call MG Carla Hawley-Bowland, whom he identified as LTC Brodsky’s commanding general (is that right?), to complain about his actions. He also provided her telephone number.”
I can't see where this is going to do anything other than backfire in Lakin and his supporters faces.
"After some additional discussion with his other guests, Mr. Liddy said on air: “Franklin, can you see if Colonel Lakin is finished in the men’s room?”
Flushing what's left of his career down the toilet??
"Mr. Farah raised the issue of whether LTC Lakin would be satisfied that President Obama was a natural born citizen if it was demonstrated that he was born in the United States or if LTC Lakin thought that the President’s father’s foreign citizenship would still prevent him from being a natural born citizen. Mr. Jensen cut in and said they would “start with the records in Hawaii and see where to go from there.”
I suspect this means if the records in Hawaii show what Obama has been claiming all along, then the next step is to go de Vattelist on Obama. And also means that there's no level of evidence that would satisfy their demands.
What a shock.
"During a discussion of discovery, Mr. Jensen said that any refusal by the Government to produce the requested records from Hawaii would be litigated before the military judge and “I can’t think of a single reason why the government would adopt the Government’s position.” (That’s quite a failure of imagination for a birther. How about Military Rules of Evidence 401 and 402 for starters?)"
"The show ended with Mr. Liddy, Mr. Farah, and Mr. Jensen discussing the historic nature of the case. Mr. Liddy opined that if LTC Lakin prevailed, every official act of the U.S. government since President Obama was inaugurated, including the health care reform law, would be nullified. Mr. Jensen agreed that “every official act of President Obama would become null and void,”
"...to dream, the impossible dream...."
14 August - A choice comment on World Nut Daily's billboards.
"The birther conspiracy theory that President Obama is an illegal alien, is nuts, it’s crazy and it has been completely and thoroughly debunked, but it still persists. Why? Blame it partly on racism, xenophobia and fanatical adherents, such as WorldNetDaily founder Joseph Farah. And the right-wing anti-Obama smear machine of talk radio, extremist right-wing lawmakers and tea party groups, also keeps the kooky conspiracy theory alive. And WorldNetDaily, known as the fevered swamp for radical right-wing conspiracy theories is erecting one of its notorious birther billboards, asking “Where’s the Birth Certificate” to greet President Obama and his family, as they visit the Gulf Coast region this weekend. Nice, huh?
WorldNetDaily is very adept at monetizing its kooky conspiracy theories and apocalyptic fearmongering, by running fundraising campaigns to pay for the billboards, as well as selling right-wing merchandise from its Superstore. The online store sells birther T-shirts, bumper stickers and scary-sounding books with such titles, as “The Manchurian President.”
And Farah is offering a $10,000 reward for “persuasive evidence” proving the place of President Obama’s birth. But no evidence exists to satisfy Farah and his tin-foil-hat-wearing minions."
14 August - Lucas Smith takes a page from Polland/Polarik's mad You Tube skillz and shows a document that doesn't say what he claims it says, all set to badly recorded music.
"I had hopes of returning to Africa and tracking down additional 1961 birth records of President Barack Obama which I believe are located in Zanzibar. President Barack Obama, by law, was born a subject of the Sultan of Zanzibar!"
This seems to be based, if I'm reading this correctly, on this observation that the hospital the birthers claim he was born at doesn't exist in this referenced colonial report because it was in Kenya, not Zanzibar. How he got to this conclusion seems to have required a lot of KY jelly and Miralax, because I can't see how he pulled it out of his ass otherwise.
14 August - One might get the idea that Dr. Orly has some.....problems.....with people of colour. (Malware and redirect warning)
"It is incomprehensible, that somebody Jewish can act like such a fascist, where he would be willing to taser a medical doctor, a war hero, and for what purpose? "
This coming from a (Jewish) woman who practices rabid censorship, espouses the most paranoid conspiracy theories, has called for the extermination of Muslims, has published racist-filled rants against anyone she doesn't like,
"In order to promote his career in the rule of the Fascist regime of this Muslim Communist usurper sitting in the White House without a valid Social Security number and a valid long form birth certificate? "
There are times Dr. Orly sounds iike a particularly ill-trained parrot.
"In my opinion each and every prosecutor in this country should follow the example of the Association of the Border Patrol agents and issue a vote of non-confidence to this regime."
Except that pesky thing called "rule of law" you see...
"I remember a few years ago, when my children were younger, they did a program for talented youth, organized by the John Hopkins University.
One day my oldest son called. He was about 10 then, he was really upset. Somebody took his new Harry Potter book. We taught our kids that they have to earn what they have. He worked hard in studying, sports, helping his brothers in order to get this book, and it was taken from him by someone, t was stolen. "
Assuming this story is real (and I have my doubts), it's also possible her kid misplaced said book.
"A boy, who happened to take this book, happened to be African-American. This boy got mad, when he was told to give back the book and told my son, that “Hitler had a good idea in killing all of your people, and stupid Americans didn’t let him finish the job”.
My bullshit meter just pegged. And notice how the supposed "thief" excludes himself (in Dr. Orly's narrative) from being an "American", just like she claims Obama has.
There's a lot of projection and fiction in this story.
"He also told my son’s roommate, who happened to be from Alaska, that he was “a dumb redneck and he probably got into program with bad grades”.
My bullshit meter just bent the needle.
"My husband told me: “You take care of this” (knowing my big mouth, it was understandable)"
I suspect it was more her husband couldn't be bothered to stop her once she got on her high horse and started ranting.
"Next day I called the director of that program in CA, where the camp was located. To my amazement this man tried to defend this boy’s actions and stated that the boys need to learn to share. He was clearly one of these brain dead ultra-liberals without a drop of common sense."
Or, is more likely, the director told her the book wasn't stolen but lost, the boy in question never said such things, and kindly get out of my face lady.
"I responded that there is a big difference between sharing and stealing. today it’s a book and tomorrow it will be this man’s car."
I smell a touch of bigotry here.....
"This boy obviously was never taught the meaning of the word no."
Much like Dr. Orly I suspect.
"He was taught rabid hatred, antisemitism and he was taught black racism"
The smell of bigotry just got stronger.
"I demanded from this director of the program to clean up his act immediately. I added, that I have in front of me a list of all the major donors for John Hopkins program, vast majority of whom happen to be Jewish businessmen, and if the directors of the program do not clean up their act, Iam writing to all of the major donors, to let them know what kind of antisemits and black racists are getting their money, their financial help. "
In other words, she was completely and totally willing to play the racial stereotype card FOR HERSELF to get what she wanted / demanded.
"When I flew to Northern Ca to pick up my son, Mr. Brodsky was waiting for me at the doors of the auditorium, expressing his deep apologies; “Mrs. Taitz, I am so sorry, this will never happen again”.
The bullshit meter just blew a fuse. Unless it was more like "Ms. Taitz, due to your threats and behaviour towards my staff and students in this programme, you and your children are unwelcome for next year. Thank you"
"Bottom line, you don’t let evil win, you fight. I hope this kid learned a lesson. I hope he will not grow up to be the next Obama or next Eric Holder, both of whom simply happen to be Black racists.
Decision of Obama-Holder Justice Department not to prosecute Black panters or any other blacks for voter fraud, for elections fraud is nothing but Black racism, and every decent American, White or Black or Asian or Hispanic, need to fight it. This is the reason, why Obama is not prosecuted for elections fraud, this is why my opponent in CA Republican primary, Damon Dunn was not prosecuted for elections fraud. We have to stop it now, or it will be too late."
Yeah, I think we can safely assume Dr. Orly is racist to the core alright. This is one of the single most bigoted things she's said, and shows a clear problem she has with African-American men.
Notice the bad guys throughout this entire narrative. The kid who supposedly took her son's book. Obama. Holder. Dunn. All of whom are African-American. The secondary bad guys are those "helping" the primary bad guys.
Yes, Dr. Orly is Jewish. But anyone can be a bigot, anyone can be racist. By claiming that Obama, Holder, and Dunn are "black racists", Dr. Orly is projecting her own racism upon them and then reacting as she *thinks* they would act towards her. And shows herself to be as much of a bigot and racist as the neo-nazis and white nationalists she likes to hang around with at gun shows.
Bottom Line - I don't believe the story about her son and the book. I believe that her son may have lost the book, the other student found it, and may have wanted proof it was her son's. Or even the book was returned but Dr. Orly automatically assumed it had been stolen because it was one of "those people". And Dr. Orly, being the racist asshat she is, inflated it to a long tale of "black racism" and anti-semitism.
14 August - And Cody Judy, via the Pest and eFail, also is harassing Lakin's Commanding General
"The Constitutional eligibility of Barack Obama for the Office of President is challenged by myself, who has standing or equal say as a fellow candidate, and I tell you he is NOT A NATURAL BORN CITIZEN, and tell you He is NOT CONSTITUTIONALLY QUALIFIED FOR THE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT. "
Somehow I don't think they're worried much about the rantings of a known felon with mental health issues.
He also includes the Amicus Curiae he filed on "behalf" of Lakin. With friends like this, Lakin might want to get used to Kansas. He even cites Manning's play trial!
"The framework of the CIA Columbia Obama Trial held in Harlem, NY May 14-19th 2010, brought a comprehensive and collection of evidence never before packaged in such a way at great cost and sacrifice and should be presented for Senate/House Congressional Trial to Judicial Committee by a coalition of presenters, and to this Military Court"
Who will ignore it as irrelevant and having no legal validity.
15 August - Dr. Orly comes up with a great idea - provoking her readers into committing a hate crime!!
"great Idea from reader Laura, we need a pig head at the site of the proposed mosque. Who has a pig farm and can ship a pig head to that building?
Posted on | August 15, 2010"
So how would she feel if someone left a pigs head on the door of her Synagogue? Or a burning cross?
The more she fails, and the more she slips into insanity, the more obvious her bigotry and racism starts to come out.
16 August - And the Supreme Court tells Dr. Orly to get the checkbook out.
"The Supreme Court has upheld a $20,000 fine against a leader of the movement challenging President Barack Obama's citizenship.
The high court on Monday refused to block a federal judge's October 2009 ruling that required California lawyer and dentist Orly Taitz to pay the $20,000 fine for filing a "frivolous" litigation. The judge said Taitz attempted to misuse the federal courts to push a political agenda.
Taitz sued in Georgia federal court on behalf of Army Capt. Connie Rhodes. Rhodes sought to avoid deployment to Iraq by claiming Obama wasn't born in the United States.
Justice Samuel Alito on Monday rejected Taitz's second request to block the sanctions. Justice Clarence Thomas had rejected the request earlier."
No doubt Dr. Orly will appeal this to the UN, the Hague, and the 4th inter-galactic circuit court on Altar IV.
16 August - Meanwhile, Dr. Orly is still advocating hate crimes. (malware and redirect warning)
"Let me know, what do you think. do you want to do it to stop a mosque at ground zero? Do you want to organize a protest with piglets in front of that mosque at 9/11 or 9/12? Do any of the people who want to protest on 9/12, want to go to that building at ground zero and protest with their dogs and piglets and signs “we don’t want a mosque at ground zero!!!’"
And as for that $20,000?
"Recent contributions: E Porche $25, Nancy Walker $20, Sandra Cooke $20, Loretta Stone $20, John Martin $20. Thank you! This is a fight for every decent American against this fascist regime. If these Nazis succeed in intimidating civil rights attorneys, than there will be nobody to fight for you, when they classify you as a domestic terrorist under the patriot act. Attorneys will be scared, that they will be disbarred or fined $20,000 dollars, a lien will be placed on their house,"
And she's still got a mad against Damon Dunn for daring to defeat her in the primary.
"I filed a legal action against Dunn, it will go to trial. I requested a deposition, but so far there was no response from his attorneys. I might have to compel his deposition. Somebody in GOP old establishment is promoting Dunn. Yesterday he was on Sean Hannity, lying about his past. Can you call Hannity and demand equal time for me? "
"Look at me!! LOOK AT ME!!!"
"While the straw polls showed me winning with 85% of the vote, it was announced that he won in the primary. "
What straw polls were that?? You won exactly ONE small county in California, and none of the polls showed you having even a remote chance.
"i believe he will be found at trial, that he committed fraud."
And you can believe that magic pink unicorns will wave their horns and instantly make you Secretary of State as well, but that doesn't mean it will happen.
"I need decent Americans, calling Hannity show and demanding that he give me an opportunity to speak."
"LET ME FINISH!! YOU NEVER LET ME FINISH!!!!"

ORDERS IN PENDING CASES
SAIN, CHARLES J. V. SNYDER, CAROLYN M., ET AL. (09-1332)
The application for an injunction addressed to The Chief Justice and referred to the Court is denied.
TAITZ, ORLY V. MACDONALD, THOMAS D., ET AL.
The application for stay addressed to Justice Alito and referred to the Court is denied."
16 August - You don't expect a little thing like the entire US Supreme Court saying "no, pay up" to Dr. Orly would actually STOP her now, did you?? (malware and redirect warning)
"Certiorari brief was submitted to the Supreme Court. Only application for the temporary stay was denied, and even that was denied without signatures of the Justices. We have now a situation, where the clerks run the Supreme Court, they issue releases, but there are no signatures of any Justices, so there is no evidence that the Justices ever read a word of these pleadings."
Translation - "Wahh! They told me NO! Wahhh!"
"In parallel with the certiorari I will be filing an appeal in an international court of Human Rights. The world needs to know about the fact that United States has an illegitimate usurper sitting in the White House without a Social Security number of his own and without a long form birth certificate."
The world thinks the birthers are a batch of nutcases and wonders why on Earth the US allows them to roam free.
"The world needs to know that our judicial system beacame a sham, when the most important issue of legitimacy of the US president was never heard on the merits., where brave members of the US military Like Major Stefan Cook or Lt. Col Lakin are persecuted and where attorneys like me a persecuted."
Let's see - Stefan Cook volunteered for reserve duty so he could file a lawsuit. And the Army took said lawsuit as "Oh, he didn't want to go afterwards."
Terry Lakin publically disobeyed movement orders from his immediate chain of command. The only way those two people would have anything in common is if Cook's orders hadn't been revoked and he refused to go.
"It was important for the world to know about the human rights violations in Stalinist Russia, in Iraq, in Iran. It is important for the world to know about the Human Rights violations in the United States during the illegitimate regime of the Kenyan born communist dictator Barack Hussein Obama aka barack (Barry) Soetoro, aka Barack (Barry) Soebarkach ."
The fact that Dr. Orly isn't in prison trading cigarettes for her life (along with other birthers) tends to show the complete lack of human rights violations taking place in the United States. It's only in her mind that the $20,000 she was fined due to her courtroom behaviour equals the USSR under Stalin or Iraq, or Iran. In those regimes, Dr. Orly would have been jailed - or worse - ages ago. Here she's still running free and publically spouting her nonsense.
16 August - And yeah, she's blaming the clerks. Again.
"So-called "Birther Queen" Orly Taitz hadn't yet heard about the Supreme Court's decision to uphold a $20,000 fine against her when TPMMuckraker reached her on Monday.
But Taitz told TPMMuckraker she is convinced that none of the members of the court read her request, and that clerks made the decision for the justices. She cited a passage from a book co-authored by Justice Antonin Scalia in which, she claimed, Scalia said that less than one percent of cases are not read by a judge.
"It was never seen by Justice [Clarence] Thomas, there's not evidence it was seen by Justice Thomas," Taitz said. "I don't believe the Justices read a word of the pleadings." She said she wanted to see the original court document with the signature of a member of the court."
Like that would satisfy you?
16 August - Meanwhile the New York Daily News also reports on the Supreme Court's decision. Complete with a great photo of Dr. Orly.
"Supreme Court tells “birther" leader to pay up
A leader of the generally ridiculed movement which believes President Obama was not born in the United States must pay a $20,000 fine she was slapped with in 2009, the nation’s highest court ruled Monday.
Orly Taitz, a dentist and lawyer in California, received the fine for a lawsuit she filed in Georgia on behalf of Army Capt. Connie Rhodes, who refused to be deployed to Iraq, arguing that the orders weren't legitimate since Obama is not eligible to be President.
The judge in that case called the lawsuit "frivolous," and accused Taitz of wasting the court's time."
Oh, and lookie at this one:
"In a Daily News online poll, which recorded nearly 20,000 votes, 95% said that President Obama was "definitely" born in the United States. One percent indicated he was "maybe" born here, with only 4% voting "probably not" or "no."
So between 4 and 11% then if you look at the CNN poll as well.
16 August - Supreme Court Docket report
Title: Orly Taitz, Applicant
Thomas D. MacDonald, Colonel Garrison Commander, Fort Benning, et al.
Docketed: Lower Ct: United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit
Case Nos.: (09-15418)
~~~Date~~~ ~~~~~~~Proceedings and Orders~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Jul 8 2010 Application (10A56) for a stay, submitted to Justice Thomas.
Jul 15 2010 Application (10A56) denied by Justice Thomas.
Aug 4 2010 Application (10A56) refiled and submitted to Justice Alito.
Aug 10 2010 Application (10A56) referred to the Court.
Aug 16 2010 Application (10A56) denied by the Court."
16 August - Oh, and Dr. Orly still thinks she's going to the California Secretary of State (malware and redirect warning)
"I also received $100 from William Black and $25 from Mr. Savaryn for my Orly Taitz for CA sec of state. this money will got to pay the court reporter for the deposition of Damon Dunn. If I can prove in copurt, that Dunn committed fraud, I will be able to be on the ballot in general election to become CA sec of state and stop Obama in 2012. considering how long the court actions last, it might end up being a special election next year, which is fine, as long as it’s over before 2012."
So let's see..... Debra Bowen is still polling ahead of Damon Dunn. If she wins in November, then anything that Dr. Orly does will pretty much be moot anyway. (Remember, even if Dunn is disqualified, it doesn't automatically mean that the state GOP would give the nomination to Dr. Orly.)
If Bowen loses, then Dr. Orly's claims wouldn't be moot, but a "special election" on the slim chance Dunn was disqualified after the fact wouldn't mean that Dr. Orly would win either. With 25% of the vote, the State GOP would rather find a few more people that would actually have a chance, and Bowen could always run again.....
Of course, Dr. Orly thinks that she's a special snowflake and the courts should just *give* her the position rather than having to actually campaign for it.
16 August - The Ledger-Enquirer reports on the Supreme Court's decision.
"The U.S. Supreme Court has denied “birther” attorney Orly Taitz’s request that $20,000 in sanctions against her be tossed out.
According to supremecourt.gov, the full court denied her application for stay today.
U.S. District Court Judge Clay Land imposed the sanctions last year after he warned her and then gave her a time limit to explain why he shouldn’t fine her in the September 2009 case of Capt. Connie Rhodes, who questioned the legitimacy of Barack Obama’s presidency.
Taitz appealed the sanctions to the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta. That court upheld the sanctions in March, and Taitz sent an application for stay to U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas on July 8. Thomas denied it a week later.
Taitz then refiled it with Alito on Aug. 4. That request was referred on Aug. 10 to the entire nine-member court, the Supreme Court’s website states."
16 August - At Salon, Alex Pareene comments on the far-right hubbub about the planned Islamic community center in New York.
"At least birther queen Orly Taitz is being more proactive than Vitter and Angle with her opposition to the Cordoba House! She is calling on her followers to erect a pig's head at the shuttered Burlington Coat Factory building, which will put an end to this whole mess."
