In today's dispatches, the concept of "Ideological Birtherism" rears it's head from the swamp, with interesting commentary on the subject. The Tea Party has a birtherstani infestation. Dr. Conspiracy gives us Farah as pornographer. Last, Dr. Orly fires off the latest attack in the birtherstani civil war, and Berg fires back on all guns.
12 September - Thanks to the people at Rumproast for pointing out the concept of "Ideological Birtherism"
Basically it's how certain people in the GOP are using Obama's origins to paint him as the "other", an "outsider", that somehow he's not just "outside the American mainstream", but "foreign" in his very thinking. This has the advantage of playing on the same fears and racism that the birthers play to, without having to spew forth conspiracy theories that keep getting debunked by pesky facts.
This started when Dinesh D'Souza published this piece of tripe in Forbes Magazine.
"...we have been blinded to his real agenda because, across the political spectrum, we all seek to fit him into some version of American history. In the process, we ignore Obama's own history. Here is a man who spent his formative years--the first 17 years of his life--off the American mainland, in Hawaii, Indonesia and Pakistan, with multiple subsequent journeys to Africa.
A good way to discern what motivates Obama is to ask a simple question: What is his dream? Is it the American dream? Is it Martin Luther King's dream? Or something else?"
Cute dismissal of Hawaii there. Yeah, it's a state, but it's not part of the "American mainland", that somehow the other 48 (or 49 to make the Palin worshippers happy) are the "real" America.
"From a very young age and through his formative years, Obama learned to see America as a force for global domination and destruction. He came to view America's military as an instrument of neocolonial occupation. He adopted his father's position that capitalism and free markets are code words for economic plunder. Obama grew to perceive the rich as an oppressive class, a kind of neocolonial power within America. "
Wow. Interesting leap of logic there.
"Colonialism today is a dead issue. No one cares about it except the man in the White House. He is the last anticolonial. Emerging market economies such as China, India, Chile and Indonesia have solved the problem of backwardness; they are exploiting their labor advantage and growing much faster than the U.S. If America is going to remain on top, we have to compete in an increasingly tough environment."
And why are many of those economies doing so well?? Oh, right, because US jobs and US industries were outsourced there.
"Incredibly, the U.S. is being ruled according to the dreams of a Luo tribesman of the 1950s. This philandering, inebriated African socialist, who raged against the world for denying him the realization of his anticolonial ambitions, is now setting the nation's agenda through the reincarnation of his dreams in his son. "
Wow. The racism is strong in this one.
Interesting note about the author in comments though:
"Posted by wisewords | 09/15/10 08:13 AM EDT
Forbes should take a look at how D'Souza thinks, and how his old Indian caste-system view of the world would prompt him to write--yet again--such nonsense. In the 1990s, D'Souza caused a rift at the American Enterprise Institute with a book that was filled with so many negative stereotypes about African-Americans that black conservative economists resigned from the AEI. D'Souza has written that some of the civil rights laws shouldn't have become law. He doesn't see anything wrong with allowing companies to discriminate based on race, gender and other factors. The problem with D'Souza is that he has a colonial view of the world, which he brought to this country with him from India. He views African-Americans as the lowest caste and are therefore unworthy of respect. Even though he's been in the U.S. for decades, he really doesn't understand this country and why we try so hard to create opportunities for all. If he had his way, the U.S. would be more like old India, where everyone knows his or her place and where no one can rise above his station. It is amazing to me how people from troubled societies come to the U.S., and want to change our society to resemble the troubled countries they ran away from."
And others all but pleasure themselves over copies.

It's time my fellow Americans woke up. It is simple. Obama IS a Muslim who has lied to us all. He is bent on destroying America and he's about to do it.
Wake up America. Time for ACTION!"
And what "action" are you talking about, eh??
12 September - It seems like Newt Gingrich just adored the "neocolonialism" article by Dinesh D'Souza, according to this 11 September article at the National Review.
"What if [Obama] is so outside our comprehension, that only if you understand Kenyan, anti-colonial behavior, can you begin to piece together [his actions]?” Gingrich asks. “That is the most accurate, predictive model for his behavior.”
“This is a person who is fundamentally out of touch with how the world works, who happened to have played a wonderful con, as a result of which he is now president,” Gingrich tells us.
“I think he worked very hard at being a person who is normal, reasonable, moderate, bipartisan, transparent, accommodating — none of which was true,” Gingrich continues. “In the Alinksy tradition, he was being the person he needed to be in order to achieve the position he needed to achieve . . . He was authentically dishonest.”
Doesn't Gingrich have a sick wife to serve divorce papers on??
13 September - The Economist comments on how Dinesh D'Souza thinks. Including what might be some projection on the part of D'Souza.
"....while I don't have any trouble understanding how Barack Obama thinks, I have a lot of trouble understanding how Dinesh D'Souza thinks. And if I were to try to understand his thinking using the same methods he uses to interpret Mr Obama, I might look to his Indian background, which is where he says he gained his insight into anti-colonialism. Mr D'Souza notes simply that he grew up in Mumbai, but a more complete accounting is that his parents were members of the Christian community in the state of Goa, which was colonised by Portugal. The last name "D'Souza" is a common family name in West Africa, where it indicates that the family is descended from the slave-trading coastal mixed-race elite. In India, however, it indicates that the family likely belongs to the Roman Catholic Brahmins, Hindu Brahmins who were converted by missionaries beginning in the 17th century. Interestingly, the Christian community in Goa retained a Hindu-style caste system, with Catholic Brahmins continuing to discriminate against Catholic dalit or "untouchables", whom they refer to as mahara or chamaar. Elite Catholic Brahmin households in Goa sent their children to Jesuit schools (like the one Mr D'Souza attended) and often spoke Portuguese at home, referring to the main local native language, Konkani, as the lingua des criados ("language of servants")."
"Goa remained a Portuguese colony until it was annexed by India in 1961, which happens to be the year of Mr D'Souza's birth. Many Goan Christians did not welcome the annexation, fearing they would be subsumed in the Hindu-Muslim mega-state. A later source of anxiety was India's affirmative action (or "reservation") policies, which set aside university slots and civil-service jobs for people from recognised historically stigmatised groups, known as "scheduled castes and tribes". Beginning in the early 1980s, when Mr D'Souza was off studying at Dartmouth, these affirmative-action policies engendered widespread resistance among India's elite classes, who were terrified of losing their privileged status in a colossal country where hundreds of millions of indigents might overwhelm the available spots at top schools (and reduce their kids' chances of, say, going to Dartmouth). Goa itself has set itself up as a redoubt against the reservation policies: it has the fewest scheduled castes and tribes of any Indian state. This is largely because elite Christians have refused to acknowledge discrimination against the Christian dalit, or to allow them to be recognised as a scheduled caste. Pope John Paul II rebuked Indian bishops for these practices on his visit to Goa in 2003."
*Raises an eyebrow*
"There's no need to search for abstruse reasons why an extreme movement conservative like Dinesh D'Souza might oppose raising taxes on the rich or defend privilege in access to education. And it's not surprising that a centrist liberal like Barack Obama thinks people earning more than $250,000 per year ought to be paying more taxes. In fact, that conviction is shared by a majority of the American electorate. If Mr D'Souza finds it bizarre, it's not Mr Obama who's out of touch with America. "
13 September - And another from The Economist
"Certainly nobody can accuse Mr Gingrich of pretending to be normal, reasonable, moderate, bipartisan, transparent and accommodating. As for the article by Dinesh D'Souza in Forbes, from which Mr Gingrich plucked this "insight", it is no less deranged. The author concludes:
Incredibly, the U.S. is being ruled according to the dreams of a Luo tribesman of the 1950s. This philandering, inebriated African socialist, who raged against the world for denying him the realization of his anticolonial ambitions, is now setting the nation's agenda through the reincarnation of his dreams in his son.
Messrs Gingrich and D'Souza have a perfect right to express such opinions. But, really, they are well outside my comprehension."
13 September - As Talking Points Memo Muckraker points out, the Tea Party seems to be quite infested with Birtherstani.
"In fact, I couldn't find a single tea partier to talk to yesterday who didn't have doubts about Obama's citizenship status or his faith. Of course, that doesn't mean everyone at yesterday's 912 rally felt that way -- just the ones I talked to. A year after 9/12/09 tea partiers were roundly criticized for images and rhetoric questioning Obama's faith and past at their big DC rally, it seems the movement has not strayed from the idea that Obama is not just a bad president but some kind of other or "usurper" (as one banner calling for his overthrow on display put it) illegally occupying the nation's highest office.
"People here know he's not an American," a tea partier from DC who would identify himself only as "Randy" told me. He launched into a refrain I would hear more than once during the day -- Obama has not displayed enough paperwork proving his U.S. birth to get a driver's license, not to mention a job that requires a security clearance.
The facts, clearly, do not matter to some. Obama was born in Hawaii, case closed. The case is so closed, in fact, that Hawaii's Republican governor, Lisa Lingle, recently signed a law allowing state officials to ignore repeated requests for the president's birth certificate from misguided birthers.
Nevertheless, the president's citizenship is an open question to the tea partiers I spoke with at the rally yesterday. "I have my doubts," Jack Smith, a tea partier from Georgia, told me. "He needs to show us the documents."
And, of course, it's not like they're bigoted or racist or anything like that.....
14 September - Over at Obama Conspiracies, "Dr. Conspiracy" makes a very interesting point about World Nut Daily's Joseph Farah.
"Pornography is at its essence the objectivization of sex, sex removed from the context of affection or procreation and packaged to create arousal. Information pornography is the objectivization of language, removing it from the context of truth and information, and packaging it to create the arousal of false belief and anger.
This brings us to one the top purveyors of information pornography on the Internet, Joseph Farah, specializing in material for the anti-Obama/birther fetish market. "
13 September - The Columbia Journalism Review gives their take on the D'Souza article in Forbes.
"So it’s come to this: Forbes cover story on “How Obama Thinks” is a gross piece of innuendo—a fact-twisting, error-laden piece of paranoia. This is the worst kind of smear journalism—a singularly disgusting work.
Forbes for some reason gives Dinesh D’Souza the cover and lots of space to froth about the notion popular in the right-wing fever swamps that Obama is an “other”; that he doesn’t think like “an American,” that his actions benefit foreigners rather than Amurricans. It’s too kind to call this innuendo. It’s far too overt for that."
The idea that Obama is the "other" is a rootstock of birtherism, IMHO
"It’s all here but the birth certificate!
Let’s unpack that stuff a little bit. First of all, D’Souza perpetuates the Cokie Roberts idiocy—that Hawaii is somehow less American than the rest of the U.S. But hey—no problems with Alaska, which came into the Union the same year. Somehow, Sarah Palin always seem to be an examplar of “Real America.” Hmmm."
*Chuckle* I see I'm not the only one who thought that.
"The veneer of respectability, if you can call it that, that D’Souza and Forbes put on this noxious near-McCarthyite junk is that Obama is an “anticolonialist.” It’s thin gruel. And, hey—I’m an anticolonialist, too. And so were George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and the rest of the gang."
13 September - The American Prospect also notes the D'Souza article.
"This is birtherism with big words. This is the witchdoctor sign without Photoshop, WorldNetDaily without the exclamation points. D'Souza doesn't need to stare at Obama's birth certificate for hours to come to the same conclusion as the birthers, which is that the president is a foreigner. But neither is "Kenyan anti-colonialism" a superficial term. At once, it engages all the racialized elements of the conservative critique of Obama -- not just that having an African father means he isn't really an American but that his inner life consists of a deep anger toward white people, and the office of the presidency is merely the means to secure a collective payback. It also manages to nod in the direction of another conservative racist meme, that having a black president makes the United States somehow analogous to African Third World countries run by bloodthirsty despots. Newt Gingrich took a break from his clownish Islamophobia this weekend to embrace this idiocy and drew a much harsher reaction, in part because we're still so silly about race in this country that we're still disarmed when a person of color makes a blatantly racist argument."
13 September - And another one, this time at "The Fourth Branch"
"Newt’s comments are beyond asinine and are clearly designed to play on already existing paranoia regarding Obama’s race, citizenship and ideology. Gingrich doesn’t even bother giving a single example in support of his argument but instead generally refers to a recent Forbes article, written by Dinesh D’Souza, on the topic. Gingrich must have been thrilled to read the Forbes article. It allows him to attack Obama on multiple levels. First, the argument invokes the “Obama wasn’t born in the US” meme without having to say it. Note how he argues Obama has perpetrated a “wonderful con” immediately after pointing out that Obama’s actions derive from “Kenyan” behavior. That’s no accident. Second, he can play on racial fears by pitting the anti-colonial African (Obama) against the average white American. Third, he suggests that Obama is an extremist- so extreme he is “outside our comprehension.” We can only predict his behavior by looking at “anti-colonial tendencies,” whatever that’s supposed to mean."
14 September - And Dr. Orly files off the latest broadside in the Birtherstani civil war.
(Scribd link here)
It's about 18 pages of drivel, boiling down to Dr. Orly claiming she's the legal avatar of all that which is good and holy, and that Berg is a mean old poopiehead.
"Most notably Taitz did not receive a copy of the drivers license of Lisa Liberi, submitted to this court on 08.07.09 during the hearing. This document is material to the case and represents the linchpin of the case."
I suspect Liberi is rather happy that's one less document for you to post on the internet about her.
"Berg and Liberi claim, that she is an innocent woman, who was not convicted of any crimes, who is physically residing in PA, and physically working in the office of Philip Berg, and not a recently convicted document forger and thief Lisa Liberi, who is assisting Berg, working of site, and who was convicted in CA of multiple counts of forgery and theft,"
Sayth the woman who submitted a document from a known felon and forger in another case and tried to claim it was real, and was bumping uglies with a disbarred felon and scam artist at the same time.
"The defendants provided affidavits from a licensed investigator Sankey, from a long time friend and volunteer for Attorney Berg, Linda Belcher, as well as Ed and Caren Hale."
Let's see. Sankey couldn't investigate his way out of a paper bag, and Linda Starr Belcher (not to mention the Hales) have a grudge against Berg.
That's gonna go well.
"Apparently, the Court was influenced by these documents and wrote in the Order to Sever and Transfer the case, that "Lisa Liberi is a resident of PA". Defendants never received these documents. Not providing those documents to the defendants, represents an impermissible extrajudicial communication, an impermissible ex-parte contact, that materially influenced the case."
Again, maybe because you've shown a tendency to spam private info about people you see as your enemies all over creation.
"Plaintiffs claimed, that their residence documents should be sealed. Plaintiffs made fraudulent statements, alleging, that they are being harassed by the defendants, however Plaintiffs presented zero evidence of any harassment, the case lasted for a year and a half and nobody harassed them.
Sayth the woman who kept publishing what she claimed was Lisa Liberi's social security number over and over and over and over and.....
"There are only despicable insane absolutely fraudulent allegations, brought forward by the Plaintiffs, without any shred of evidence, claiming that they want their personal information sealed because they believe that Taitz, a licensed attorney and doctor, who never had any criminal record, attempted to make a deal with some criminal, to kidnap and kill the plaintiffs, their husbands and children."
And if anyone knows despicable insane absolutely fraudulent allegations, it's Dr. Orly Taitz.......
"Phil J. Berg, without any shred of evidence to make up such allegations, such outrageous slander and defamation of character"
Is Dr. Orly worried that Berg is horning in on her act??
"Liberi and Berg tried to justify their requests with insane, absolutely untrue and bizzare allegation"
In other words, they were acting just like Dr. Orly.
"2. If Liberi indeed provided Judge Robreno with a valid Pennsylvania License, than Defendants are entitled to get a copy of that license, so that they can forward it to her probation officer and San Bernardino, California District Attorney's office for revocation of her probation, as well as to the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania and Pennsylvania bar, to commence an action against Philip J. Berg for aiding and abetting felon on probation, to violate her probation."
Assuming, of course, it's the same person. Dr. Orly has never given any sort of credible proof that Berg's legal assistant is the same Lisa Liberi who's the felon and forger.
It would be interesting to call in the forger Lisa Liberi's probation officer and confirm if he or she has been getting regular contact and check in's from that Lisa Liberi and knows her current location.
"Defendants have shown that according to her probation she can reside only in CA or NM, she is subject to the jurisdiction of CA, therefore the case at hand has to be dismissed as citizenship of Liberi was not provided to resolve the issue of diversity to allow it to proceed in Federal court."
Is she questioning Liberi's citizenship now?? What's next, claiming Lisa Liberi is a citizen of Indonesia??
Oh, wait, that's Berg's gig. Oh well, wouldn't be the first time Dr. Orly stole from Philip Berg.
"To assess sanctions against the Plaintiffs and their attorney for instituting a frivolous action based on fraud on the court and perjury"
I wouldn't bring up sanctions to the court if I was Dr. Orly
"attorney Philip Berg is submitting documents to courts and conducting nationwide fundraising"
Someone's worried that the PayPal donations won't come her way......
I suspect she did a cut and paste from other documents as well. Because among the people she copied on this bandini mountain outcropping are:
Judge David Carter (who had nothing to do with this case in the slightest),
The US Commission on Civil Rights,
The Public Integrity Section of the Department of Justice,
The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) - Special Rapporteur on the Situation of Human Rights Defenders,
And the United Nations Commission for Civil Rights Defenders,
14 September - The Daily Nation of Kenya comments on the Dinesh D’Souza and Newt Gingrich's take on it.
"Gingrich’s position on D’Souza’s piece is even more baffling considering that he is a former history lecturer who should have known D’Souza’s article was pure hot air.
But who is surprised really? Gingrich’s main intention is to push the narrative that the President is exotic, non-American, and not “one of us” as the November midterm elections approach. He is trying to appeal to voters’ fears.
He comes from the same party that instilled fear in senior citizens, lying to them that Obama is trying to kill them by way of passing health-care reforms.
It is unfortunate that now “Kenya” has become the buzz-word used to score political points. The conservatives would really love to replace the name “Kenya’’ with the word they want to use, “Black”, but for the sake of political correctness “Kenya” seems to be a good cover."
16 September - Broadside #2 in the Birtherstani civil war.
(Scribd link here)
"Defendant Orly Taitz has been stalking Lisa Liberi and her son; and Lisa Ostella and her children.
Due to the facts that Defendant Taitz’s behaviors have now escalated to an extremely dangerous level against the Plaintiffs, their husbands and children, e.g. Felony Stalking across state lines and what appears to be Defendant Taitz’s attempt to hire an individual with a violent background to physically harm Lisa Liberi, her son and husband; as well as Lisa Ostella and her children, it is imperative that this Court refer this matter to the United States Attorney’s Office or the United States Department of Justice immediately, before one of the Plaintiffs’ are physically hurt and/or killed."
I'd worry less about Dr. Orly and more about some of her followers.
"Defendants Orly Taitz and Neil Sankey only want verification of Plaintiff Liberi’s actual residency in order to carry out their violent, serious threats to destroy and get rid of Plaintiff Liberi.The entire docketing system of this case gets published all over the Internet by Defendant Taitz."
Anyone notice how bent out of shape Dr. Orly gets when someone finds out anything about her, but she has absolutely no problem publishing the slightest detail about anyone she doesn't like??
"Since this Court entered its Order severing and transferring the within Case, Defendant Taitz has continued obstructing justice by filing frivolous motions.
Dr. Orly's entire legal career has been one long frivolous motion.
"It appears Defendant Taitz sent copies of this filing to everyone in the world, however, neglectedAGAIN to serve the undersigned."
Not a surprise there.
"Defendant Taitz loves to play with the minds of her readers and followers."
Such as they are.
"It appears that she wants to manipulate her followers into believing that she is again the victim whose rights are being trampled upon, instead of the fact that is proven by a preponderance of evidence filed with this Honorable Court that she is indeed the perpetrator and the within Plaintiffs are the actual victims."
Of course. Dr. Orly always plays the victim card, even when she's at her worst.
"...these filings containing falsified allegations pertaining to the Plaintiffs were sent by Defendant Orly Taitz to Judge David O. Carter and Chief Judge Audrey B. Collins, U.S. District Court, Central District of California, Southern Division, the same Court this Court Ordered Transfer of the within action for no permissible purpose.Defendant Taitz is attempting to prejudice the Court against the Plaintiffs and conflict out these two Judges in California and make it difficult for the Court to handle Plaintiffs’ case."
I'd normally say "don't attribute to malice what can be explained by insanity or stupidity", but in Dr. Orly's case, malice doesn't rule out the other two.
"Defendant Taitz has employed volunteers, most of who have felony criminal convictions, which Defendant Taitz has failed to disclose.Several have many different convictions throughout the years with multi prison terms.Most of the felonies are forgery and theft type crimes; however, a few of Defendant Taitz past and/or present volunteers have criminal convictions for violent crimes.Some have severe psychiatric issues with a history of violence and hospitalization in mental institutions.A few had a "falling out with Defendant Taitz" due to Defendant Taitz asking them to lie or perjure themselves in Federal Court about several matters. They provided Affidavits to Federal Judges about Defendant Taitz's attempt, and to the California Bar.One Affidavit also included information regarding Taitz's adulterous affair with Charles Lincoln III."
"Defendant Taitz has been stalking Plaintiff Liberi and her son, having her supporter’s Neil Turner (Neil Turner is also Defendant Taitz’s Plaintiff in a dismissed case) and Defendant Linda Belcher send out to all the Militia and White Supremacy groups,"
I'd feel sorry if Berg wasn't hanging with similar groups himself.
"Plaintiff Liberi’s picture1, which Defendant Taitz illegally obtained, along with the address in which Defendant Taitz believes Plaintiff Liberi resides, calling Plaintiff Liberi a “Blood-Red Herring”.
A what??? (Takes a look at the link provided) (malware and redirect warning)
Ah, here it is. (Bold face mine)
"if the ‘BIRTH CERTIFICATE’ is a red herring** here (no matter where in the universe he was born, Obama’s admitting that his father was not a U.S. citizen, openly concedes that he [Obama] does not meet the Article II requirements for the Office of President and Commander in Chief), then attorney Philip Berg’s arguments, actions, and employees are ‘blood-red herrings’!
Red herring (logical fallacy), a deliberate attempt to change a subject or divert an argument"
In other words, normal birther debate tactics.
"Berg, an admitted ‘life-long Democrat’, was, and still is, a “Hillary Supporter”, and, when he didn’t get his way by having her as the Democrat Presidential candidate in 2008, he stayed in the game of ‘Obama’s not eligible’ in order to:
1. Make money with his ‘half-truth’ argument (being born on soil not under U.S. jurisdiction would also make Obama ineligible);
2. Keep his ‘Hillary for President’ hopes alive (and an eventual appointment as U.S. A/G perhaps);
3. Destroy other attorneys who might have a better case for Obama’s removal, and might just implicate Hillary in the deception, fraud, and the treasonous altering our form of government by unconstitutional means."
Note #3 there.
You know, it's always been a puzzle to me how Berg (or most of the other PUMAs) could happily hang out with and be bestest buddies with the same right-wingers who spent years spreading lies and bullshit about Bill and Hillary Clinton. Worse, how they could NOT see that many of the lies about Obama they so happily spread are pretty much the same lies about the Clintons. Hell, some of the anti-Obama folks (Corsi, Farah, etc) were behind some of the Clinton lies and conspiracy theories.
"as he beats the drum for the Kenyan birth-only (listen as he denies the ‘both parents must be U.S. citizens’ argument here: PHIL BERG DENIES de VATTEL’s “BOTH PARENTS MUST BE CITIZENS – TO BE A ‘NATURAL BORN’ CITIZEN” ARGUMENT"
Yeah, it's one of Berg's few connections to reality when it comes to Obama - that he hasn't drank the de Vattelist flavour-aid.
"Plaintiffs Liberi and Ostella have been receiving death threats and harassment from Defendant Taitz supporters, demanding the lawsuit against Defendant Taitz be dropped and threatening Plaintiffs Liberi and Ostella if it is not dropped.See the post by Defendant Taitz on her website requesting her supporters to call Philip J. Berg, Esquire’s office, but instead they are calling the private homes of Plaintiffs Liberi and Ostella threatening their lives."
Again, isn't it funny how Dr. Orly inflates the slightest criticism on her website to harassment and threats that need to be reported to the FBI AT ONCE, and completely fails to take any responsibility for the harassment her cavity creeps dish out to anyone she's got a hate-on for.
"Defendant Orly Taitz “projects” what ever she is doing onto her victims."
"Defendant Taitz has also put a “call out” to her supporters to harass State Agencies demanding the arrest of Lisa Liberi"
So she's treating Lisa LIberi the same as she treats the President of the United States then?
"Defendant Taitz’s filings are filled with nothing more than hearsay statements, conclusions of law, and speculation. "
In other words, exactly the same as every single thing she ever files in a court of law.
"Defendant Taitz only filed herfrivolous filings with this Court to use this Court and its docketing system to further publish false allegations about the Plaintiffs;"
So she's treating Lisa LIberi the same as she treats the President of the United States then?
"What Defendant Taitz doesnot seem to understand and to quote Judge Clay D. Land, “Like Alice in Wonderland, just saying it is so, doesn’t make it so"
"Plaintiffs have brought to this Court’s attention the fact Defendant Taitz willnot stop her barrage of filings until this Court takes action to put a stop to it."
Got news for you. That won't stop her then either.
"Defendant Taitz then claims that the Defendants and her are “whistleblowers”.Whistleblowers of what?This suit is about the invasion of privacy; publication of full Social Security numbers; false statements made about the Plaintiffs; right to be let alone; harassment by the Defendants, etc."
Dr. Orly must have confused Berg and Liberi with Barack Obama, Jr.........
"Defendant Taitz’s entire motion is based on lies, false statements, mis-quotations of testimony and manipulated events.Your Honor, Defendant Taitz MUST be sanctioned, otherwise this will never stop."
Again, not even then. All we've seen $20,000 in sanctions do is cause her to whine and scream more. As long as she's got a law license and a husband willing to put up with her crap, it won't stop
"Sanctions are used to deter false statements; improper filings and unbecoming behaviors of an Attorney."
And hasn't stopped Dr. Orly in the slightest.
I have precious little use for Berg in the slightest, and consider him much to blame for the foundation of Birtherstan. But Dr. Orly is a magnitude of order far and beyond Berg in the nutball conspiracy department, and has a paranoid and nasty streak in her narcissistic, rat-gnawed brain.
