Orly Taitz - Legal Genius

Orly "Birther Queen" Taitz continues to have a weird and unfortunate time with her legal odyssey to have Barack Obama declared ineligible for the Presidency. We've reported before on her now-infamous - and quite harshly debunked - Kenyan birth certificate, but did you know it was thrown out for being improperly filed?

The latest news is that she improperly tried to remove two clients from the lawsuit, and has yet to file proper paperwork on the case.

Last week, she asked for Magistrate Judge Arthur Nakazato to be thrown off the case, complaining he’d rejected a previous Taitz document because of “trivial technicalities.” ....

(Federal Judge) Carter said he’ll hear that allegation in court on Sept. 8 - if Taitz first properly serves the U.S. Attorney’s Office with the complaint and summons, something she has still not done.

The Taitz document thrown out by Nakazato asked that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton verify a registration produced by Taitz that she claims is a Kenyan birth record for Obama. Taitz refiled that document with corrections last week.

Click here to read about plaintiffs Wiley Drake and Markham Robinson seeking to replace Taitz as their attorney on the case – and Taitz saying that they can’t because she’s kicked them off the case.

Carter wrote Friday that Taitz’s court filing attempting to remove Drake and Robinson from the case was filed “improperly and without their consent.”

So let's see: she can't file the paperwork and evidence properly, doesn't know how to remove her clients, doesn't seem to be able to get what she needs done and talk to who she needs to talk to, she can't talk on television without sputtering out into a flailing, brownshirt-fearing wreck, AND she's being sued by Birther Phillip Berg for "going too far?"

It sounds like the Birthers need a better queen. Is Jack Thompson doing anything these days?

Birther Representative Hits the Trifecta!

Here we have Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz) - a man not afraid to let his fool flag fly.

It's a rare thing for one person to be so wroGn that you have to give them an award. Today, Trent Franks is that man.

At a town hall meeting with his constituents this last Saturday, Rep. Franks not only questioned whether Barack Obama was born in the United States - and is therefore a Natural Born Citizen, and eligible for the Presidency - but said he might actually bring a lawsuit forward to force the President to produce his birth certificate.

Franks said there was not enough evidence that Obama is not an American citizen. He did say there was a lot of conflicting evidence of Obama's citizenship and that he was considering filing a lawsuit, the only congressman to do so. Franks asked why the president did not simply produce a birth certificate.

Of course, those of you who've been paying attention - and not given to believe in stupid, time-wasting political sideshows - may be laughing right now. But wait! It gets better. Because not more than a month ago, this exact same Trent Franks said the exact opposite thing!

“I believe Barack Obama was born in Hawaii, stayed within the United States and, therefore, is a constitutionally natural-born citizen of this country,” Franks told (firedoglake's) Mike Stark.

“I’ll be quite honest with you,” Franks continued. “When the information came to us that there were a lot of questions, it was very fascinating information. My office did some in-depth research. And we found birth records in the newspapers in Hawaii that couldn’t possibly have been forged. That’s my perspective, that you can’t go back and rewrite those.”

And it gets better still! He wants to bring a lawsuit against the President to make him provide a birth certificate, when he already has? Is this the same Trent Franks who was a sponsor of the Lawsuit Abuse Reduction Act of 2004?

Why yes, it is!

Trent Franks: Birther Doofus, Flip-Flopper, Hypocrite - and winner of the rANT Farm's Trifecta Award for this evening.

In other Birther News, Crooks and Liars reports that the proof of the pudding may lie with the First Penis. Birthers at Freak Repub... er, Free Republic want to know: is the President circumcised?

Natural Born 54
I am having a vision of a court room scene. The judge turns to O sitting in the witness chair to his left and says “I am sorry, Mr. President, but I am going to have to ask you to stand and drop trou .....”

And I bet they'll all want to be there to watch, those pervs ; )

Is your money addicted to coke?

Ever wonder why so many fat cats like to sniff their money?

A new study shows that up to 90% of American currency is contaminated with cocaine -- either from being used to snort it, or being in contact with bills that were.

Data released by the American Chemical Society says that “cocaine is present in up to 90 percent of paper money in the United States, particularly in large cities such as Baltimore, Boston, and Detroit. The scientists found traces of cocaine in 95 percent of the banknotes analyzed from Washington, D.C., alone.”


The problem is growing rapidly. Two years ago, the number was 67%.

This is not the time for panic and worry. This is a time to get very familiar with your buckage. Very, very familiar.

NASA Finds Obama's Birth Certificate!

The good news is that, thanks to the Hubble telescope, we can now put the whole "Birther" thing to rest, as Obama's Long-Form Birth Certificate has been found.

The bad news? It's orbiting Saturn.

t looks for all the world - or worlds -- like some small object on an inclined orbit has punched through Saturn's narrow F ring, bursting out from underneath, and dragging behind it a wake of particles from the rings. The upward-angled structure is definitely real, as witnessed by the shadow it's casting on the ring material to the lower left.

We understand that Orly Taitz is organizing an expedition to go and get it. However, by the time she gets there and back, Obama's first term will most likely be over.

No, I don't think this is right. I think this is bull.

But here's his side of the story. Make up your own mind, and hope they don't finger you, too.

Angry Muppet Claims to Have Obama's Kenyan Birth Certificate

The Birther saga got a little more surreal over the weekend, when it was discovered that a box of Kenyan detergent duly registered Barack Obama's entry into this world on August 4th, 1961.

California Attorney Orly Taitz, who is representing an Army Major trying to escape duty in Afghanistan by claiming that Obama is not eligible to be President -- and therefore not a legitimate Commander in Chief -- was purportedly given the document by an anonymous source.

Taitz told WND that the document came from an anonymous source who doesn't want his name known because "he's afraid for his life."

The article at World Net Daily also claims that the document "bears none of the obvious traits of a hoax." However, their counter-claims about the Republic of Kenya notwithstanding, there are some obvious oopsies, according to this article at Daily Kos.

First, the hospital is Coast Provincial General Hospital (sometimes said to be Coast Province General Hospital), not Coast General Hospital.

Second, Kenya was a Dominion the date this certificate was allegedly issued and would not become a republic for 8 months.

Third, Mombasa belonged to Zanzibar when Obama was born, not Kenya.

Fourth, Obama's father's village would be nearer to Nairobi, not Mombasa.

Fifth, the number 47O44-- 47 is Obama's age when he became president, followed by the letter O (not a zero) followed by 44--he is the 44th president.

Sixth, EF Lavender
(listed as the registrar) is a laundry detergent.

NBC had the document's "discoverer" on their show, and it quickly turned into a spectacle even more surreal than the birth certificate, itself.

What can we say? If Major Cook is relying on this lady to get him out of his obligations to the armed forces, he should be getting his money back, instead.

Happy Birthday, Mr. President. Happy birthday to you.

Barack Obama = "Antichrist" in Hebrew?

Our friends at Whirled Nut Daily... er, World Net Daily seem to think so. Except that they don't really. But they WILL post this article so you can make up your own mind. Really.

Thus, on the video, the announcer notes, "If spoken by a Jewish rabbi today, influenced by the poetry of Isaiah, He (Jesus) would say these words in Hebrew ... 'I saw Satan as Baraq Ubamah.'"

"Gosh, was Jesus giving us a clue or was this just a freak coincidence?" thought the filmmaker at the time of his research.

"I want to emphasize I'm not ashamed of what I put there," he told WND. "I'm not proclaiming he is the antichrist, or that I'm some kind of a Hebrew expert, but the word associations are indisputable. The Hebrew word for lightning is 'Baraq' and the word for heights or high places is 'Bamah.'"

The movie has a prominent disclaimer stressing the film does not declare "BHO" [Barack Hussein Obama] to be the antichrist, but is merely pointing out the Hebrew words and their "striking" correlations to Jesus' statement.

It's journalism at its highest form!
