In today's dispatches, Arizona's birther bill may get shocked back to shambling unlike for a third time. Dr. Orly starts to aggressively court plaintiffs for her ballot jihads, including a conspiracy nutter for one and a convicted rapist for another.
The "Chicago Liberal Examiner" publishes some of the letters she got from the charming, polite birtherstani. Thomas MacLeran shows delusions of adequacy and has decided he's going to be the grand general of the upcoming coup himself. Dr. Orly downloads a pre-signed subpoena form and sends off a raft of special subpoenas that have the birtherstani peeing on the carpet in delight.
Swiftboat liar Jerome Corsi is upset that the birthers favorite tribble mobility scooter won't pony up some TrumpBucks to help the cause. And Ed Hale tries to get the court - or Berg - to dismiss Linda Starr due to illness.
10 December - Oh look. Arizona may try for birther bill 3.0 in 2012.
"A little birdie told us Rep. Carl Seel, R-Phoenix, is planning to run the "birther bill." Again. It would be the third time lawmakers have considered whether to require presidential candidates to show proof of U.S. birth in order to get on the ballot in Arizona.
Last year, Seel got the bill all the way to the governor's desk only to see Gov. Jan Brewer relegate it to the trash heap with a veto.
Apparently, the bill landed in the recycle bin. Seel's looking to revive it and to get some national attention in the process."
12 December - Dr. Orly gets conspiracy crank and vanity presidential candidate Laurie Roth to join her ballot jihad. (Malware and redirect warning)
"Attorney Orly Taitz and Plaintiffs in this case are hopeful, that they will be able to finally brake this wall of corruption and criminality, that surrounds Obama and individuals associated with him."
Gotta love Dr. Orly's abuse of the English language.
12 December - Julie Driscoll of the "Chicago Liberal Examiner" version of the fake examiner shows us some of the extra special comments she got from the birtherstani from her last article.
"Yesterday, I wrote an article about the "birther" movement entitled, "Birthers: First annoying, then distracting, then alarming, now dangerous." A couple of things happened here: First, the birthers came out of the woodwork to comment and, if the comment thread on the article is any indication, they proved my point - and then some. Second, there's no getting around it: People who cling to a screwy belief - such as the birthers do - that has been so widely debunked have more than a few screws loose. Knitting with one needle. The wheel's still turning but the hamster's dead. That kind of thing."
And then provides us examples like:

According to established case law, the "birth certificate" is totally irrelevant. The ADMITTED FACT that Obama I was NEVER a U.S. Citizen means that, no matter where the lying S.O.B. was born, Obama II CANNOT POSSIBLY (and very obviously does not) legally possess the status of "natural born Citizen". (You libtards are in for a shock. At this very moment, behind closed doors in D.C., the removal of Obama is in progress.) The big wet dream of you Marxist and Muslim fools is finished.

Lolli Lolli Lolli hasn't noticed what some of his fellow birtherstani have been up to of late, has he??
12 December - I guess Thomas MacLeran has decided to lead the coup himself.
"Listen up. I don’t care if you’re retired, ex-military or not, current active duty military, a civilian who loves America; we’re all in the same boat. this is our country and we’re TAKING IT BACK."
"It’s been years since we’ve heard a whisper of truth from the mainstream media, but that’s going to change. I want every Patriot to know the location of your local radio and television stations. Just look in the phone book, and then drive by and scope the layout."
And then do???
"Look, this isn’t fun and games. We’re not going off to play war; we’re going to kick people out of our country and we’re going to convict traitors."
You are, are you??
“Political Correctness” has just ended. If you are a Muslim, you are a terrorist and we Patriotic Americans don’t want anything to do with your Sharia nonsense which includes your so-called “honor killings,” when, IN FACT, there is no honor in premeditated murder. OUT OF MY COUNTRY!"
"FRAN!!! Check under the bed for Muslims!! I just KNOW there's hiding there……."
"You illegal immigrants, thanks for the respect that you’ve shown my country and me. And as payment for your disregarding my laws, I’m kicking you out, and that includes anchor babies."
"….and never mind what that pesky Constitution says!"
"I have many contacts in the military and have received thousands of emails in support of what I say from our troops"
I suspect these are his contacts:
"….and that’s the troops in all of the services, including the police."
Last I heard, the police aren't part of the military.
"Add those guys and the millions of us civilians who are armed, believe in the Second Amendment, are true Patriots, and I’m telling you, WE WILL PREVAIL."
"There is no question that we outnumber our enemy at least ten to one, perhaps higher."
Yeah, just look at the tens of people that attend birther rallies and the like!
"All we need is to get ready, and be ready. If you want to call it criminal, or sedition, or unlawful, please yourself. Stock up on what you’ll need to get the job done, and I’ve a feeling it’ll be sooner than later. Won’t be a walk in the park, but we’re overwhelmingly on the side of the Constitution; what the hell do they have?"
The real Constitution, not the fake one you seem to want to follow, US law, US legal codes, and a whole bunch of real patriots who refuse to allow a handful of hate-filled seditionists to steal their country away.
Wow, I guess he figures he'll just lead the coup and take power for himself, rather than a pesky thing like an actual election.
12 December - The people at birther report are piddling themselves with glee over Dr. Orly's "subpoena".
"RS said…[Reply] Well, hello Fogbum OBots. What do we see here? We see a court ordered subpoena by a JUDGE.
Now, what were you silly clowns always yapping about? Oh yeah, what don't you 'Birthers' NOT understand? That's not a "Court ordered subpoena!"
It certainly looks like we have one here you Commie OBots. LoL.
December 12, 2011 6:00 PM
And someone tries to enlighten them:
Anonymous said…[Reply] The answer to this subpoena will be the same answer as it was the last three times Dr. Taitz asked. First, there must be a valid subpoena, issued out of the proper court. Dr. Taitz failed at this before in Taitz v. Astrue. Second, it must be properly served on Loretta Fuddy. Again, Dr. Taitz has failed in this aspect before, causing her multiple trips to Hawaii.
And third, Hawaii will not comply until Dr. Taitz shows the required interest under Hawaii RSA 338-18.
Should this new subpoena actually be served, expect that the State of Hawaii will respond with a motion to quash and the motion will be granted.
December 12, 2011 6:07 PM
"Anonymous said…[Reply] First: Georgia courts have no jurisdiction over Hawaii agencies or Hawaii residents. You need a Hawaiian court for that.
Second: There is no indication that it has been served at all.

My how articulate and literate.
12 December - Swiftboat liar Jerome Corsi is upset that tribble mobility scooter Donald Trump won't cough up his money to support the birther jihad.
"Despite his continued assertions that Obama's birth certificate is a forgery, billionaire Donald Trump has refused to contribute financially to Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's law-enforcement investigation into Obama's eligibility to be president.
Michael Cohen, executive vice president and special counsel to Trump, told WND it was "highly unlikely" Trump would be making a financial contribution to the Cold Case Posse conducting the investigation under Arpaio's direction."
Maybe because they didn't let him rename it the "Trump posse"??
"Reilly told WND he was frustrated by Trump's continued refusal to put his money where his mouth is.
"We are disappointed and perplexed that we at the Surprise Tea Party have not received a single reply to our numerous emails," Reilly told WND.
"If Mr. Trump truly believes that Barack Obama's birth certificate warrants further investigation, we would respectfully ask Mr. Trump to consider making the success of the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office Cold Case Posse investigation his top priority. Actions speak louder than words."
Or maybe it could be that for all his blathering, Trump knows that birtherism is a streaming pile of horse apples, and he would rather spout off on it than actually waste money with it.
And in comments:
"Tom Mc · Top Commenter
Ask yourself who or what is he, a Marxist, Socialist, Communist or a pathological liar?
He claims by fraudulent documents he is qualified to be our president but the U.S. Constitution denies him any right to be one, and he is an anti American S.O.B.
Why would Mrs. Lolo Ann Soetoro, white mother of Barack H. Obama aka Barry Soetoro, ever re-change her name and her two children’s names (Maya and Barry) once born and living in Indonesia, back to a divorced-penniless, polygamist and a bigamist’s name of deceased black African Barack H. Obama Sr.? When it is assumed she unwittingly at 17-18 years of age, married into a by-racial African Muslim multiple marriage group’s name from Kenya and bear Obama. Thus making Obama‘s name and the use of it null and void and illegal by law in America, and in all his later stated 57 plus states! Now accepted as just one of Obama’s idiotic Harvard educated honest and transparent statements, that he did not sign an Executive Order to deny or seal yet.
Ignoring the racist aspects of this particular rant, since when has Maya Soetoro-Ng ever used "Obama" as a surname, rather than the name of her biological father, Lolo Soetoro??
Wow, the stupid is strong with this one.

So true. Cowards. The cowards in Congress are terrified of the black-lash. In truth, educated African Americans from coast to coast are horrified at what Obama has revealed himself to be; others will perceive the attacks on the legitimacy of the election of the ineligible 'Manchurian' Muslim from Mombasa as a racially motivated 'lynch mob.' That's not our problem. Our national security is threatened by this Muslim practicing taqqiya illegally occupying the Oval Office.

12 December - As part of her Georgia ballot jihad, Dr. Orly issues another "subpoena" to Loretta Fuddy" (malware and redirect warning)
(Scribd link here)
What Dr. Orly is demanding is for Fuddy to:
"…Produce the Document on the Attached List:
Original typewritten 1961 birth certificate #10641 for Barack Obama, II, issued 08.08.1961, signed by Dr. David Sinclair, Stanley Ann Dunham Obama and registrar Lee, stored in the Health Department of the State of HI from 1961 until now, as well as the microfiche roll for August 1961, containing above document Pretrial deposition will be conducted on January 5, 2012 at 1250 Punchbowl Ave, Room 325, Honolulu, HI 96813, 10arn."
Some people point out the obvious - namely what validity does a Georgia Court have over officials for the State of Hawaii???
December 12th, 2011 @ 5:53 pm
How does a Georgia administrative hearing court get jurisdiction in Hawaii? Can’t/won’t Fuddy, just ignore this?"
December 12th, 2011 @ 6:21 pm
What is the basis for jurisdiction of the Georgia Administrative Court over Hawaii resident Loretta Fuddy?"
And someone notes that Dr. Orly would have to pay travel expenses.
December 12th, 2011 @ 8:13 pm
You do know you have to pay for her travel costs as well as hotel stay etc."
She doesn't handle this well.
December 12th, 2011 @ 8:47 pm
do you want to help me pay for the expenses or you want to make me feel bad?"
Making you feel bad is simply a plus.

I have a court reporter lined up in HI, but I am sure Nagamine and the rest of AG will raise hell and she will refuse to testify, as she did it with the federal subpoena. It is a one big mafia there, I will need Sheriff Joe there with me"
So let me get this straight. Dr. Orly wants the sheriff of Mariposa County, Arizona, to go with her to Hawaii to enforce an improper subpoena issued in the State of Georgia.
What part of "out of jurisdiction" does she not understand??

"CAN SOMEONE HELP WITH LOGISTICS IN SEATTLE, WA AND IN DC?
Posted on | December 13, 2011

I WAS WONDERING, IF I COULD FLY FOR ONE DAY TO SEATTLE WA AND RENT A CONFERENCE ROOM AND SERVICES OF A VIDEOGRAPHER AND A COURT REPORTER TO DEPOSE BOB BAUER, JUDY CORLEY AND SDDHARTH VELAMOOR OF PERKINS COIE.

Oh, and send money

I'm trying to figure out why she needs to come to Seattle for this though. Checking the Seattle office of Perkins Cole, none of the attorneys mentioned work in that office.
Robert Bauer works as a partner in the Washington DC office of Perkins Cole. Judith Corley used to work as a partner in that office before going to the White House. The only Seattle connection is that Siddharth V. Velamoor was an associate in that office, but he seems to have his own practice now on Mercer Island.
13 December - Dr. Orly is trying to figure out the judge hearing her ballot jihad in Georgia (malware and redirect warning)
"I am trying to get a feel, as to who is the presiding judge in GA. For other judges the court posted info and bios, but not for judge Malihi. I am trying to find, where did he study, in what area of law did he work before becoming a judge. "
Planning your usual attempts at harassment or arse-kissing??
"We know that the regime got to judge Carter and he changed his rulling. as a matter of fact the regime got to all of the judges dealing with this case."
Nobody got to Judge Carter. He said he would rule on the merits if said merits were established. You failed to establish the merits, and he dismissed the case.
And at some point it's got to soak though to your nitrous addled brain that the reason the judges keep ruling against you is that YOU HAVE NO FACTS, EVIDENCE, OR LAW TO BACK UP YOUR INSANE CLAIMS!
" I am afraid, they will get to this judge too. All I can tell, is that Malihi is an Arabic name, but I am not sure, whether it is Arabic Christian or Muslim. "
Oh noes! Dr. Orly is worried about Arab cooties!!
"Edward Paard December 13th, 2011 @ 4:06 pm “Malihi” is being a common name in the country of Iran. This may be cause for the concern, as he may have family ties there or be under the cloak of the “taqiyya” muslim practice."
13 December - Two updates in the Texas branch of the birtherstani civil war.
"12/13/2011 197 ORDER: Pro se Defendant Edgar Hale mailed to the Court the attached motion to dismiss all of the Plaintiffs' claims against co-Defendant Linda Sue Belcher. Defendant Hale did not mail a copy of that motion to the Clerk's office.Defendant Hale is not a licensed attorney and can not represent any other party in this lawsuit. To the extent that this pleading is before the Court, the Court will not rule upon it. (Ordered by Judge Mary Lou Robinson on 12/13/2011) (egg) (Entered: 12/13/2011)"
(Scribd link here)
"MOTION TO DISMISS
Your Honor, I am not asking for this dismissal for myself, but rather for my codefendant, Linda Sue Belcher.
On August 18, 2011, Mrs. Belcher suffered a massive heart attack. Her heart stopped beating for almost 5 minutes before the medical people arrived and shocked her heart back to beating. She was in CCU for 10 days with life support keeping her alive. Mrs. Belcher has suffered irrerversal brain damage and will not be able to defend herself in this court. She is now in rehab, trying to put what little of her life back together."
Linda Sue Belcher is, of course, the PUMA and former Berg cheerleader turned Dr. Orly supporter "Linda Starr"
I would take just about anything Ed Hale said with a truckload of Morton's, but if she did suffer such a heart attack, then my thoughts and prayers go to her and her family in hopes that her recovery go well.
Of course, Ed Hale has to go over the top though:
"I ask that the Plaintiffs for once in their lives to have some compassion and agree with this motion. Mrs. Belcher was their friend for many years before they turned on her. They did everything they could to destroy this woman and now they have done it."
If it hadn't been for Linda Starr telling Philip Berg all the claims about Kenyan births, Indonesian citizenship and false COLB's, it's possible Berg would have never filed his original lawsuit. Berg owes her for making him a birther.
And while part of me may want to see her illness as karma in action for her past behavior, I really wouldn't wish heart attacks and issues like that on my worst enemy.
As for the second:
"12/13/2011 200 ORDER REFERRING CASE TO NON-BINDING MEDIATION: The parties are to select or designate a mediator. Alternative Dispute Resolution Summary form provided electronically or by US Mail as appropriate. Deadline for parties to designate a mediator is on or before 12/30/2011.

14 December - Dr. Orly is trolling for clients (malware and redirect warning)
"What I can recommend, is that you file a following letter with the office of the Secretary of your state"
And what does said letter say?
"I am not an attorney. I do not have an in state attorney and I cannot afford one. I am requesting a consent from the office of the Secretary of State/Election Board to allow an out of state licensed attorney to represent me and bring on my behalf an election/ballot challenge."
So at what point does the California State Bar finally pull their thumb out and take disciplinary actions against Dr. Orly??
" I will try to write on your behalf. If no answer, I might be able to add you as an additional named plaintiff and bring your secretary of state as an additional defendant in one of my cases, that I am bringing on behalf of Presidential candidates, who have standing."
Once again she goes for quantity, not quality.
14 December - Dr. Orly starts off the North Carolina portion of her ballot jihad with a letter to Don Wright, legal counsel for the North Carolina Board of Electors. (malware and redirect warning)
It seems that she hooked up with one Danny Vestal, who has been told "no" by the board before and has a reputation for frivolous lawsuits. He was told by Don Wright:
"You have filed nothing with this agency. You have sent us e-mails involving a matter filed under Hawaiian law. The North Carolina State Board of Elections does not have jurisdiction over social security numbers , the President’s birth records from another state, or whether the name he uses for legal purposes today is different from his passport records when he was a child. Finally, any question about his eligibility to be on the ballot in the future is not yet ripe as he has not been named the nominee of a political party for 2012.
Several court decisions have confirmed that he was and is qualified to hold the office of President. They have been no court decisions to the contrary.
Again we have received your e-mails, but they are not considered as filings since they are under Hawaiian law and we lack jurisdiction over the subject matter. Also I know of no provision in North Carolina law that allows the State Board of Elections to hold an emergency hearing on the qualifications of a setting U.S. President."
So, of course, Dr. Orly starts off nasty and goes downhill.
"1. your response to Mr. Vestal was an insult to human intelligence and a de facto violation of Mr. Vestal’s civil right to participate in a lawful election, which was done under the color of authority"
And once again we see Dr. Orly's ability to win friends and influence people.
"5. I demand an immediate hearing for me and for Danny Vestal to appear before the Secretary of State or the elections board and provide all the evidence, Mr. Obama can provide his rebuttle and a decision has to be made, if he can be on the ballot in N.C. primary. If this is not done, than you are criminally complicit in elections fraud, forgery, uttering of forged identification documents by Obama, obstruction of justice, misprision of multiple felonies and possibly treason, and a criminal complaint will be filed with all the proper agencies against you, elections board and the Secretary of state in due time."
And once again we see Dr. Orly going "you do what I say or you're a treasonous no-good poopyhead!!!!"
Seems to me that Mr. Wright might want to took at rule 5-100 of the California State Bar Rules of Professional Conduct.
"(A) A member shall not threaten to present criminal, administrative, or disciplinary charges to obtain an advantage in a civil dispute.
(B) As used in paragraph (A) of this rule, the term "administrative charges" means the filing or lodging of a complaint with a federal, state, or local governmental entity which may order or recommend the loss or suspension of a license, or may impose or recommend the imposition of a fine, pecuniary sanction, or other sanction of a quasi-criminal nature but does not include filing charges with an administrative entity required by law as a condition precedent to maintaining a civil action.
(C) As used in paragraph (A) of this rule, the term "civil dispute" means a controversy or potential controversy over the rights and duties of two or more parties under civil law, whether or not an action has been commenced, and includes an administrative proceeding of a quasi-civil nature pending before a federal, state, or local governmental entity."
It would also be nice if the California State Bar would ENFORCE these rules against Dr. Orly for a change.
14 December - BTW, Danny Vestal has a bit of a legal history, according to the North Carolina Department of Correction.
That is, unless you don't count serving 9 out of 25 years for second degree rape charge and "indecent liberty with a child" as " a bit of a legal history.
Can we say "slime" boys and girls?? And this is who Dr. Orly is using in North Carolina.
He also tends to be a bit frivolous with lawsuitsas this 4 February 1997 decision notes (PDF),
"Danny Alan Vestal is before us as plaintiff/appellant for the seventh time within a year. All of Vestal's claims in the past have been totally frivolous. This appeal is no exception. Vestal now argues that the President of the United States and the Governor of North Carolina are "breaking the Laws of God" by swearing oaths on the New Testament upon taking office. Complaint at 3. Vestal concludes that, as a result of this action by President Clinton and Governor Hunt, Vestal is "suffering undue punishment and distress because the defendants are breaking the Law of God in speaking and conspiring against the Holy Commandments resulting in plagues upon this nation and my situation." Complaint at 3-4 (internal Biblical citations omitted). Vestal adds, for good measure, that "the defendants should be visiting the prisons." Complaint at 3. Because of the utter frivolousness of this appeal, we impose sanctions upon Vestal pursuant to Federal Rule of Appellate Procedure 38.
Vestal began his pro se legal career claiming that during his incarceration at Davidson Correctional Center in Lexington, North Carolina, he was subjected to cruel and unusual punishment and that his First Amendment right to religious freedom was violated because he was denied his request to visit his terminally ill grandmother. Vestal claimed that these alleged violations entitled him to $3,000,000 in damages. The district court dismissed the action as frivolous, and this court affirmed. Vestal v. Freeman, 1995 WL 551277 (4th Cir.).
Next, Vestal brought an action under 28 U.S.C. § 1983 claiming
that understaffing at the Davidson Correctional Center created stress and overwork for guards. Neither Vestal's concern for the prison guards nor his general request for "better security" lifted this claim above the realm of the frivolous. The district court dismissed Vestal's claim as such, and we affirmed. Vestal v. Murphy, 1995 WL 607816 (4th Cir.).
In Vestal's next challenge to the conditions of his incarceration, he claimed a constitutional right, under the Privileges and Immunities Clause, to the amenities enjoyed by other state and federal inmates, such as better televisions, computers for personal use, private rooms, and air conditioning. Again, this court affirmed the district court's dismissal of the complaint as frivolous. Vestal v. Hunt, 1995 WL 734447 (4th Cir.).
