In today's dispatches, Mark Hatfield files his appeal paperwork. Kansas wants their own 2012 model birther bill. Manning is double-downing on the nutty. Birther Report takes a potshot at Dr. Orly, while she tries to take her road show to Indiana.
Dr. Orly hears a word she should be quite used to hearing. Thomas MacLeran tells why he's running his vanity campaign for president. Charles Kerchner sends out AN ALL CAPS press release. Tracy Dorsey / Fair does her own birther ballot jihad filing, and it's has crazy as her videos are. And Mark Hatfield doesn't want taitz sprayed all over his cases.
15 February - Mark Hatfield seems to be filing separate appeals for each of his clients. Kevin Powell being the first one.
First document is Petition for Judicial Review.
(Scribd link here)
"Pursuant to O.C.G.A. § 21-2-5(e), Petitioner now appeals and seeks judicial review of the Secretary of State's Final Decisioni n this case, and further seeks a reversal of that FinalDecision, for the reason that substantial rights of thePetitioner have been prejudiced because the findings, inferences,conclusions, and decisions of the Secretary of State are:
(a) In violation of the Constitution and laws of this state;
(b)In excess of the statutory authority of the Secretary of State;
(c)Made upon unlawful procedures;
(d)Affected by other errors of law;
(e)Clearly erroneous in view of the reliable, probative,and substantial evidence on the whole record; and
(f)Arbitrary and capricious and characterized by an abuse of discretion and a clearly unwarranted exercise of discretion."
So not quite as "wahhh, I lost to an empty table", but still annoyed.
"The administrative law judge, and consequently the Secretary of State adopting the initial Decision of said judge,erred in issuing a single ruling applicable to the cases of Petitioner and certain other individuals (represented by separate counsel) who independently challenged Respondent's qualifications, despite the fact that the evidence; testimony;and legal argument advanced by Petitioner Powell differed from that offered by such other individuals;"
Translation - "The Judge got taitz smeared all over my case."
"The administrative law judge, and consequently theSecretary of State adopting the initial Decision of said judge,erred in failing at Petitioner's request to certify to thisCourt, for a determination of appropriate action including a finding of contempt, the facts of the contemptuous behavior of Respondent (and Respondent's counsel) in knowingly,intentionally, and deliberately failing to comply withPetitioner's Notice to Produce served upon Respondent"
Translation - "Damnit, I demanded that BOY show his papers, and you ignored my demand! I want that uppity darkie to show his papers NOW, do you understand, son??"
The second is a letter from Hatfield to SoS Kemp

The third is a letter from Hatfield to Judge Malihi

15 February - Kansas tries for their own 2012 birther bill.
"Rep. Scott Schwab, an Olathe Republican and chairman of the House Elections Committee, said origin of House Bill 2224 was tied to anxiety about Obama's birth status.
He said the amended version had more to do with acknowledgment candidates for state and federal office in Kansas should be held to the same identification requirements applied to people casting votes in the state's elections."
And in comments:
"The Birther Bill
By KobachKrusaderKid | 02/15/12 - 12:47 pm
I believe we are faced with a very real and serious problem, and that problem is illegal immigrants are coming to our country to be elected as public officials, and mooch off of our hard earned tax dollars. This bill is the only way to stop that. And this problem is as old as our country itself. George Washington? Born in a British territory. Barrack Obama? Born in Hawaii. That's not even a state! Stop the illegal immigrants from stealing our jobs..now!!!"
"The Kenyan coward
By ksdb | 02/16/12 - 03:09 pm
When Obama was challenged in Georgia recently, he refused to show his alleged certified birth certificate, as would be required by this bill. In other words, he holds himself to a lesser standard than average citizens for whom he voted a citizenship verification requirement in 2005 that requires birth certificates when you apply for a drivers license or ID card. The law he voted for also has a standard process for verifying birth certificates with the issuing agency. Obama had a chance to verify his alleged birth certificate in court. Both he and the issuing agency refused to verify it. This is a bill that needs to be passed to prevent frauds like Obama from getting elected."
And some sanity
"OK, proud Republican here… By longhawk | 02/15/12 - 04:45 pm …but can we please stop with the "Birther" nonsense? Seriously, I don't believe the president altered every micro fiche article in every library that had reference to the president's birth in Hawaii. Nevertheless, the "natural born citizen" requirement for the presidency is antiquated--couldn't give two squirts where the president was born. If he's an American and became a citizen by legal means, God bless him.
I will not vote to retain Obama as our president. I don't agree with a lot of his philosophy for governing our nation, and I do believe that some of his policies have intruded upon important American freedoms.
But for the love of God, accept that he's an American, and (God help us), we elected him fair and square. Out of respect for the office, show a little respect for his integrity on this point."
15 February - Wow. Manning is getting crazier and crazier.
In a nutshell, Manning claims that "God" told him that Saudi Arabia that has long as Obama is president, there will be no more "9/11" style attacks due to "Muslim protection" of Obama, and that any legal action taken against Obama will be seen as an attack on Islam.
Oh, and that every birther group has an Islamic spy in it to sabotage their efforts.
The insanity is pretty intense here.
15 February - Get the feeling Birther Report is trying to tell Dr. Orly something?
15 February - And then there's what Hatfield filed for Carl Swensson.
Petition for Judicial Review
(Scribd link here)
It's pretty much the same as what he filed for Powell, with the names changed.
16 February - "Reality Check" tells what the birthers really need.
"Yes, a Tardis is exactly what they need. The use of a Tardis is the only way any of their claims could magically become true. Look at these examples of their claims that could be dramatically improved and other events that might have a better outcome through the judicious use of a Tardis:
*They could go back and change the hundreds of Civics books, legal articles, and guides that say anyone born in the US can become President.
*They could actually have mentioned the two parent citizen nonsense before late 2008 so it didn’t look like they pulled it out of their ass thin air.
*Mario Apuzzo and Leo Donofrio could have represented Ankeny from Indiana on appeal at SCOTUS (OK, it wouldn’t have helped but it would have been fun.)
*They could go back and stop Gary Kreep from bringing Orly Taitz on board in his eligibility case with Alan Keyes. (Now that would be a complete shame.)
*Someone could tell Orly that the Orange County LGBT HQ was not the proper place to file her petition to run for California Secretary of State.
*They could tell Terry Lakin to find a better set of friends and an attorney with a specialty other than dog bite cases to advise him on how to express his concerns about the President’s place of birth.
*The could hint to Jerome Corsi that he consider finding another subject for a book.
*They could advise Donald Trump to never, never mess with President Obama. Remember how he snatched that fly in mid flight?
I am sure you could think of many more. Fortunately, Doctor Who is not ready to sell his Tardis and would never consider putting it in the hands of these fools. It would indeed lead to an irreparable rift in the space time continuum."
16 February - Dr. Orly sends her latest Birther Ballot Jihad attempt to Indiana. (Malware and redirect warning)
"IMPORTANT ELECTIONS FRAUD COMPLAINT AND CANDIDATE CHALLENGE TO OBAMA IS BEING FEDEXED TODAY TO IN ELECTIONS COMMISSION. DRAFT OF THE COMPLAINT IS ATTACHED
Posted on | February 16, 2012 "
16 February - Dr. Orly is told by Judge Wright in Georgia, "No, you can't have Pro Hac Vice, not yours"
(Scribd link here)
"The majority of the required information set forth above was not included in the Motion for Pro Hac Vice of Ms. Taitz as required by Uniform Superior Court Rule 4.4(E)(1).Moreover,the Motion included no Verification affirming that the applicant read the application,was knowledgeable as to its contents,and that said contents were true. The Motion also failed to demonstrate, through proof of service, that it would be served upon the Office of the GeneralCounsel of the State Bar of Georgia"
In other words, Dr. Orly failed to follow instructions, Again. Though it's nice to FINALLY see a judge deny her PHV attempts.
16 February - Wow, the stupid, it burns.
Thursday, February 16, 2012 at 3:03 PM
Basic reason #1 why I signed-up to be a Republican candidate for president in 2012 was to get in on the debates where I could “set the record straight”. For instance, if the moderator would ask, “OPOVV, what do you think of the president’s selling Israel down the river?” I’d answer, “You mean the de facto president? You mean what do I think of the South Side Chicago con-artist, the illegal immigrant, the Muslim plant, the “Clown of American politics”, the imposter, the low life, the future detainee at Gitmo, the sorry excuse we have masquerading as president, you mean, his selling Israel down the river, is that who you mean? He’s not the president, don’t you know that, Mr. Media Moderator? Obama, or whoever he thinks he is today, doesn’t meet the qualifications set forth in the Constitution to be president, or did you miss that particular memo, or maybe you weren’t paying attention in American Civics class, or maybe your Commie teacher skipped that part of the lesson plan. Ask me the question again, but this time, get it right”."
He actually thinks he's getting into any debates??
16 February - Charles Kerchner announces, in all caps, a press conference after his planned Pennsylvania Birther Ballot Jihad filing.
"CONCERNED CITIZENS OF PA, RESIDENTS OF AND DULY REGISTERED MEMBERS OF THE ELECTORATE, WILL HOLD A PRESS CONFERENCE 3:00PM, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 17TH, AT THE CAPITOL ROTUNDA IN HARRISBURG, PA, TO ANNOUNCE THAT A STATE LAWSUIT, IN COMMONWEALTH COURT, WILL BE FILED ON FRIDAY, SEEKING A JUDGEMENT TO HAVE CANDIDATE BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA’S NOMINATION PETITION OR PAPERS SET ASIDE DUE TO HIS FAILURE TO MEET THE NATURAL BORN CITIZEN CONSTITUTIONAL ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS OF THE OFFICE HE SEEKS.
CHARLES KERCHNER, THE GROUP’S LEADER AND A RETIRED NAVY COMMANDER, AFTER MANY YEARS OF RESEARCH, HAS DETERMINED THAT CANDIDATE OBAMA IS NOT ELIGIBLE TO HOLD THE OFFICE OF PRESIDENT BECAUSE “HE IS NOT A NATURAL-BORN CITIZEN ACCORDING TO THE US CONSTITUTION.” “WE ARE A NATION OF IMMIGRANTS BUT CANDIDATE OBAMA’S FATHER WAS NOT ONE.” HE SAID. “UNTIL CANDIDATE OBAMA CAME ALONG, NO PRESIDENT SINCE THE FOUNDING GENERATION HAS HAD A FOREIGN BORN FATHER WHO NEVER IMMIGRATED TO THE USA.” OBAMA’S FATHER WAS NEVER A CITIZEN. CANDIDATE OBAMA WAS BORN A BRITISH SUBJECT AND DUAL CITIZEN."
The people at Birther Report have some commentary.
"Famous Spearthrower said…[Reply] Good luck with this court challenge. I believe this is the forth one file across the country including 3 I have heard of in Arizona, Georgia and Illinois. Aside from seeking at minimum an FBI examination and authentication of his birth certificate I think many Americans ought to consider his other "constitutional disability" as spelled out in Section 2 of the 14th Amendment and DEMAND the vote necessary in both Houses of Congress to remove that disability based on his relationship with Bill Ayres and his previously convicted wife Bernadette Dorn. February 16, 2012 1:42 AM"
Article II of the 14th Amendment states:
"Section 2. Representatives shall be apportioned among the several States according to their respective numbers, counting the whole number of persons in each State, excluding Indians not taxed. But when the right to vote at any election for the choice of electors for President and Vice President of the United States, Representatives in Congress, the Executive and Judicial officers of a State, or the members of the Legislature thereof, is denied to any of the male inhabitants of such State, being twenty-one years of age, and citizens of the United States, or in any way abridged, except for participation in rebellion, or other crime, the basis of representation therein shall be reduced in the proportion which the number of such male citizens shall bear to the whole number of male citizens twenty-one years of age in such State."
I'm still trying to figure out what the hell the commenter is talking about.
16 February - Some people at Birther Report are seeing the writing on the wall.
"Anonymous said…[Reply] Glad the efforts are being made but SC will never hear this and all appeals will be denied until it gets to that level. Our country has been taken over in a bloodless coup. We have until November to find his(whoever he is) real birth certificate, adoption records, and school applications which likely show he applied as a foreign student. Dude was not born in Hawaii or else he is lying about his entire identity and could be the Son of Sam for all we know. Birth records may be impossible to find because there is no such person as Barack Obama Jr. Ever think about that? That should matter a lot. He is no more the son of that Kenyan then my white honkey ass. Without these documents or proof of who he is, Obama wins reelection by fraud in 2012 and then the Constitution will suffer its final shredding. These appeals are a total waste of time. February 16, 2012 6:57 AM"
"(CAPT-DAX) said…[Reply] I'm starting to think this is one big Circle jerk..all these Treasonist and complicit… MTHR FKRS!! will end up against the wall, after were all taken off to Extermination Camps.. February 16, 2012 8:07 AM"
"Anonymous said…[Reply] The result of this appeal will be the same as the last case to go to the Fulton County Superior Court, i.e. nothing.
This "movement" which once was so promising, is day by day coming more and more to resemble the WW2 Japanese soldiers who kept holding out in remote locations for years, even decades, sfter the war ended.
February 16, 2012 8:36 AM"
16 February - Tracy Dorsey nee Fair, AKA "KenyanBornObamAcorn", comes up with the Maryland Birther Ballot Jihad.
And if you thought her videos were crazy, well….
(Scribd link here)
Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5:
No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty fiveYears, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.
14th Amendment Section 1All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof,are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall maker enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of theUnited States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws. Article 1, Section 8, Clause 10:To defame and punish Piracies and Felonies committed on the high Seas, and Offences against the Law of Nations"
Yes, she actually cited the phrase in the Constitution that the de Vattelists claim shows that the entire thing is based on a translation of "The Law of Nations" that didn't exist until a decade later.
"The term Natural Born Citizen is not based upon English Common Law, but rather on Vattel's definition written in his legal treatise of 1758 titled, The Law of Nations or Principles of Natural Law."
Except the term doesn't appear in the original French OR in the English translation that was available at the time.
"An interesting illustration is offered by some early statistics concerning courts: within 31 years, from 1789-1820 Grotius was cited in pleadings 16 times, Pufendorf 9 times; Bynkershoek 25 times; Vattel 92 times. "
And in the founders own writings, Blackstone is cited more often than de Vattel, and de Vattel was never cited as a legal reference in said writings.
The whole thing goes to 52 pages (27 of which are exhibits), most of which is de Vattelist cut and paste, with some historical revisionism thrown in for good measure. (Bonus, page 45 is Lucas Smith's Fake Kenyan Birth Certificate! Extra Bonus, page 46 is the Fake Kenyan Birth Certificate with the Dutch background!!!)As a pro se complainant, she makes a decent videographer.
The conclusion is where the true Tracy Fine shines though. (Bold face mine)
For the reasons stated above, I feel I've proved there is no other choice but to remove Mr. Obama from the ballot for not filling the Natural Born citizen requirements needed to run for the Office of the President. Leaving Mr. Obama's name on the ballot in not only unconstitutional, but violates all Maryland citizens 14th amendment rights by enforcing a law that abridges the privileges or immunities of citizens oft he United States, not to mention our right to free and fair elections by qualified candidates. If this constitutional error is not made right, it will set precedent that all one needs, is to be is born here to be President and it won't be long before we have an anchor baby allowed to run for the Presidency and because their parents allegiance is to another country, the child will have no allegiance to this country whatsoever. That will be the end of America, if the unconstitutional President doesn't ruin it first.
Just in case you needed proof that deep down in her fetid little soul, she's a freaking racist.
17 February - Looks like Dr. Orly is throwing her
"I verified, that the documents were received with the first shipment by 8:30 am and called the court several times. I included $213.50 for the filing fee, $200 for Pro Hac Vice-out of state attorney application and paid some $100 for the FedEx. I got a call back and was told that the fee is not $213.50, but $245.50 and an additional $1 for the motion, so unless someone brings a check for $33 or cash, they will not file the case. I called the plaintiff, Mr. Farrar, he brought additional $33. I told him, that when I spent thousands of dollars and thousands of hours, no sense of playing games and arguing with them for $33. "
Don't you just love how she's always talking about the money she's wasting on this garbage??
"I, also, wrote to the court, that in the administrative court I was granted the right to represent the clients pro had vice- meaning an out of state attorney representing in state client. Though usually it is required for an in state attorney to co-sign the case, when the case is handled pro-bono (at no charge to indigent client) and/or it is a civil rights case, the requirement for the in state co-counsel is waived. Judge Wright was not willing to waive this requirement. "
Every time Dr. Orly calls herself a "Civil Rights Attorney", or one of her cases a "Civil Rights Case", an angel coughs up blood.
"I got a response from her, she wanted full compliance with the in state counsel co-signing and additional information. "
Wow, you mean someone actually wanted you to follow the rules! Shock and amazement!!!
"While I have no problem supplying additional information,"
Including that minor little detail about your past sanctions??
" It is impossible to find a co-counsel who is not frightened to take upon these most explosive issues, dealing with Obama using a stolen Social Security number and a forged birth certificate."
In other words, you can't find anyone in Georgia crazy and stupid enough to put their own professional reputation on the line to help you. Got it.
"However, in my opinion bringing a limited case dealing only with the interpretation of natural born, is going absolutely nowhere. I believe it to be a waste of time and money"
"Don't waste your time with those other attorneys, send all your money to MEE!!! It's all about MEEEE!!!!!!"
"…but everyone is entitled to his opinion and I respect the opinion of other attorneys."
"So, I advised my clients, that they can proceed pro se. David Farrar, who is a resident of GA, has a better chance both legally and logistically, and he will continue pro se with this appeal."
Congratulations David Farrar, you just got thrown under the bus by your attorney! How does it feel??
"Other plaintiffs, who reside in other states, probably will not proceed pro se, but I might bring a case on their behalf in the federal court."
Good luck with that, skippy.
"I looked up the judge on this case. Anybody can look up info on judge Cynthia Wright. She is a very, very liberal Democrat. It is hard to believe she will ever rule against Obama."
Makes a good excuse as to why you don't wish to follow her rules, right?
"You can see a big difference between me and other attorneys, in that when other attorneys demand large retainers of $10,000 or $25,000 and bring very limited cases, I do it not for the money, but because I believe in what I am doing and I bring very detailed cases with the most incriminating evidence, in spite of persecutions by the regime."
You're constantly hitting up your followers for money, bitching that other birther groups aren't giving you any money, and filing any crap you can find in hopes of finding something that will stick.
And as for her Indiana Birther Ballot Jihad stop:
" I want to see, how they will justify keeping this criminal and fraud, Barack Obama, on the ballot, after they removed the Secretary of State for something minor."
Maybe because their Secretary of State actually did break the law, while you have no credible evidence, witnesses, or proof that President Obama did likewise??
"If they do that, people will revolt."
She's really starting to rattle birther cages….
And in comments:
February 17th, 2012 @ 4:57 am
You may be spending thousands of dollars and thousands of hours but it’s not nearly enough. You need to sell your home and all your belongings and really, really go for it. Do something dramatic. Show them you mean it. It’s now or never.
Keep your spirit up!"
17 February - Hatfield sends a letter to the judges of his two separate clients as to why he doesn't want them consolidated.
(Scribd link here)
"While I concede that the Farrar case and the Welden case involve much of the same subject matter, these two (2) cases consist of separate evidence and testimony from that presented in the Swensson and Powell cases I am handling. Further, the Farrar case, in particular, involves not only the eligibility issue, but also claims of Social Security and elections fraud, identity theft, and other matters.
My clients' position is that their two (2) cases, involving the same testimony and evidence, should be consolidated for hearing before a single judge. However, we do not believe that our cases should be consolidated with either the Welden case or the Farrar case due to the differing testimony and evidence submitted in those matters. In any event, we would specifically object to having our cases consolidated with the Farrar case due to the very different nature of that case, the possibility of confusion of the issues between the cases, and the likelihood of prejudice to my clients' cases as a result of the anticipated style of presentation of the Farrar case."
Translation - "please please please don't splash taitz all over our cases!!!!"
