Terrifying dentist-lawyer Orly Taitz recently filed another suit on behalf of some wingnut soldier who didn’t want to go fight in the various wars — although had no problem remaining in the military, in America! — because Barack Obama is from Kenya and cannot ergo make her do that, so there. Well, here is a judge in Georgia making fun of Taitz, and this soldier, for 14 pages. It is brilliant. [Court Doc]

    “The American taxpayers paid for her third and fourth years of school and financially supported her during her subsequent medical internship and residency program. In exchange for this valuable free medical education, Captain Rhodes agreed to serve two years in active service in the Army. She began that term of active service in July of 2008 and had no concerns about fulfilling her military obligation until she received orders notifying her that she would be deployed to Iraq in September of 2009.

    Captain Rhodes does not seek a discharge from the Army; nor does she wish to be relieved entirely from her two year active service obligation. She has not previously made any official complaints
    regarding any orders or assignments that she has received, including orders that have been issued since President Obama became Commander in Chief. But she does not want to go to Iraq (or to any other destination where she may be in harm’s way, for that matter).”

    Yee-ouch.

  • dementor

    Another choice bit from the doc:

    “[She] claims that the President is “an illegal usurper, an
    unlawful pretender, [and] an unqualified imposter.” (Compl. ¶ 21.)
    She continues with bare, conclusory allegations that the President is
    “an alien, possibly even an unnaturalized or even an unadmitted
    illegal alien . . . without so much as lawful residency in the United
    States.” (Id. ¶ 26.) Then, implying that the President is either a wandering nomad or a prolific identity fraud crook, she alleges that the President “might have used as many as 149 addresses and 39 social security numbers prior to assuming the office of President.” ”

    I count at least 5 potential band names in there.

    Two years Medical School paid for by US America Gubbiment
    One coward who didn’t want to go to Iraq because she’s afraid to get hurt (should have joined the Peace Corps, dumbass) in violation of her contract with Army
    One whacked out insane Rooshin immigrant with no sense of irony
    14 pages of legal bitchslapping
    Plus having to pay court costs for everyone involved

    = Priceless

  • One Yield Regular

    If Captain Rhodes still has an itch to continue litigating, she could sue Orly Taitz for legal malpractice. At least there she’d have a terrific chance of prevailing.

  • WIDTAP

    ORLY swears that it’s a “Kenian [sic] hospital Birth Certificate”, and World Nut Daily backs her up with their customary unimpeachable gusto!

    “Is that the footprint of [tar]baby Barack Obama?”

    Only time will tell WND! ONLY TIME WILL TELL AMERICA!!1!

  • MOG

    I do not wish to be in harm’s way. But I also do not wish to have my dental school education paid for. So I’m good. What is Rhodes’ problem? How can someone intelligent enough to complete dentist school also be dumb enough to fall for the chicanery of O. Taitz?

    Pretty strange when a previously convicted forger won’t lie.

  • BobTheBuilder

    Well hell, that Judge Clay D. Land is just one of them “activist judges” we’re always hearing talk about. A good old REPUBLICAN judge would’ve kicked out that Illegal Usurping Wandering Nomad Alien.

    What? Clay D. Land was nominated by George W. Bush and approved by the Republican Senate in 2001?

    Never mind.

  • Dangerous

    Apart from the obvious holding in the order, the only parts that make a difference are that 1) plaintiff has to pay back the defense (U.S. Government) for the costs to defend that nonsense, and 2) if the lawyer files any more lawsuits in that matter, the the court will attach sanctions for filing frivilous lawsuits.

    Neither item is a small matter. The court precedent should put an end to any such claims filed by anyone related to Obama’s birth. Pressing such a claim in court is now, in effect, illegal and subject to civil penalties. No doubt, the birthers will see it as proof that they are right, and the government has silenced them. Then again, twisted logic is their only ally.

The courts put up with a lot of bat-shit craziness before they finally say enough. Our justice system would be a lot more efficient if judges could just find someone bat-shit crazy on the first go and stop all the never-ending nonsense. The amount of money innocent folks (and our government) have to spend to humor the bat-shit crazies is ridiculous.

  • President Beeblebrox

    This is what it’s like to get bitchslapped by a Judge – in a footnote, where judges love to bitchslap.

    The Court observes that the President defeated seven opponents in
    a grueling campaign for his party’s nomination that lasted more than
    eighteen months and cost those opponents well over $300 million. See
    Federal Election Commission, Presidential Pre-Nomination Campaign
    Disbursements Dec. 31, 2008, http://www.fec.gov/press/press2009/
    20090608Pres/3_2008PresPrimaryCmpgnDis.pdf (last visited Sept. 15, 2009).
    Then the President faced a formidable opponent in the general election who
    received $84 million to conduct his general election campaign against the
    President. Press Release, Federal Election Commission, 2008 Presidential
    Campaign Financial Activity Summarized (June 8, 2009), available at
    http://www.fec.gov/press/press2009/20090608PresStat.shtml. It would
    appear that ample opportunity existed for discovery of evidence that would
    support any contention that the President was not eligible for the office
    he sought.

    Furthermore, Congress is apparently satisfied that the President is
    qualified to serve. Congress has not instituted impeachment proceedings,
    and in fact, the House of Representatives in a broad bipartisan manner has
    rejected the suggestion that the President is not eligible for office.
    See H.R. Res. 593, 111th Cong. (2009) (commemorating, by vote of 378-0,
    the 50th anniversary of Hawaii’s statehood and stating, “the 44th

    Birther Orly Taitz Compares Self To Mandela, Wants Judge Tried For Treason

    In an interview with TPM just now, Birther evangelist Orly Taitz fired back at Clay Land, the U.S. district court judge who tore apart Birtherism and threatened Taitz with sanctions in an order today, saying that “somebody should consider trying [the judge] for treason and aiding and abetting this massive fraud known as Barack Hussein Obama.”

    “This is so outrageous what this judge did — it goes in the face of law and order,” said Taitz, reached at her office in Mission Viego, CA. “Not every judge is as corrupt as Judge Land. Some judges believe in the Constitution. And some judges believe in the rule of law.”

    I look forward to hearing about her getting kicked out of Detox for screaming non-stop at her fellow meth-heads about “the Kenyan usurper” – & not even the most craven FoxNews media-whore will gives her so much as a twenty for her sob-story … 2012? 2014? Next March? The sooner the merrier.

    I especially love the reference to Terry Schiavo. That was one case that KILLED the repugnicans, and now it comes back to haunt them again.

    In response to those people who correctly assert that sanctions might apply to Ms. Orly only in that court, You can me sure that with this ruling if she (or anyone else) tries to file a similar lawsuit, opposing counsel would certainly file a Rule 11 motion seeking dismissal and sanctions. The defense would cite this judge’s opinion, and any litigant and counsel filing the lawsuit should have been aware of that ruling.

    Note that each court doesn’t have to give the plaintiff (or defense, for that matter) very much latitude in filing frivilous lawsuits or motions. A plaintiff and their attorney will now have to think twice about filing another claim, since they will have to expect almost immediate dismissal, will be forced to pay the defense’s costs, and would likely be sanctioned. The last penalty is punitive, but the others are likely to be too expensive to make the fools-errand worthwhile.

    Not that this will matter. They’ll take the court ruling as proof that they are right since now the courts *have to* protect Obama from proving he’s a U.S. citizen.

    I could probably rant about this woman’s (Orly) insanity and need for a padded cell, but if she tries again maybe the judge will take care of that for us. Or I could go on about how he/she has incited the racists to show their true colors, and how destructive her actions have been for our country. That, by her ridiculous low brow ignorant way of thinking, it would also be acceptable for the ‘sane’ people of the nation to join together and file a class action suit against her for all the hate and racism she has incited, or dozens of other reasons.
    But what I just can’t get over is that ANYBODY would be listening to this woman (she is a woman, right? there have been questions about that too) who brags of not only being a lawyer and a dentist, but also a Realtor. Really??
    Seriously, someone lock her insane rear-end up in a padded cell, give her shock therapy of something. Maybe her brain cells will be activated. Otherwise, send her racist a** back to Austria where she can try to re-institute her ‘pure race’ campaign and they will already know what to do with her. I’m sure they will not be as tolerant of her hate filled thoughts as Americans have been. Maybe that’s why she ran from there to begin with.

    Orly Taitz is a Kenyan! Well, a Somali, actually. But everyone knows all those African countries are the same one!

  • Old Man Dotes

    Oh, this just gets better and better! O Rly files for reconsideration!

    [re=412831]shadowMark[/re]: Uhh, Taintz was not born in Uhmerika. If Sarah Palin for any reason cannot fulfill her duties as Ms. America (aka POTUS) then ORly will have to accend to the orfice. Which she will be ineligable 2 do unless she can produce a birth certificate that shows that she was born in Honolulu, Hawaii on Aug. 4, 1961.

    That last post was a reply to “Palin/Taintz 2012”

    Dr. Taintz needs to run for congress and be swept in during the 2010 Repub landslide – which will happen because libtards don’t vote in mid-term elections. “What? There’s no election if no one’s running for president.”

    The new republican congress will impeach and deport B.H. Obama and then impeach Biden just because, making the new Speaker of the House John Boner president.

    President Boner will repeal admendments 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 19, 22, 23, 24, and 26. The 2nd amendment will be amended to insert the words “of white men” between “the right” and “to bear arms”. All liberals, muslins, sex perverts (That is homosexuals not republican politicians), anyone not being a full tithing memebr of the new official American Christian Church, and “Obama voters” will be rounded up and shipped to the new Gitmo, formerly called Puerto Rico.

    Old Man Dotes: Have you read that joke of a refiling yet? The rule she quotes seems to me that responses to motions have to be made *within* twenty days… but she turns around and bizarrely says the rule means the court was not allowed to respond *until* twenty days had elapsed. WTF? I mean, I know English isn’t her first language, but her very first argument is PREPOSITION FAIL.

    Then she goes on to basically ramble on with a conspiracy theory about how the 11th District Court is corrupt, bought and paid for by the eeeevil shadow libruls.

    I swear, it’s like reading the diary of a paranoid schizophrenic. I was so dumbfounded by her train wreck of a response that I had to register and post here just to express my amazement.

  • Gregly

    Oh, it gets better: Judge responds to Orly’s request, starting off with quoting Yogi Berra.

    This guy is my HERO.

  • Jurisrachel

    For any doubters, here is the link to the court’s website posting of the actual opinion: http://www.gamd.uscourts.gov/divisions/rhodes-v-mcdonald.pdf. You can backtrack from there to get to main website for that district court as well, for heavy-duty double-checking. (Y’all made me doubt, made me do it too … .)

    Hooray for judges who can put aside potential partisan alliances (note who appointed Judge Land) and lay a righteous smackdown on attorneys who file garbage claims. (As an attorney, this pisses me off as well … makes us all look bad.)
