Orly Taitz Thinks UN Can/Will Protect Her

Queen Birther and international lawyer-dentist Orly Taitz has asked the United Nations Human Rights Council to protect her. We know that she is in hiding from other mean lawyers because she issued a press release, about how she is hiding. It comes under the name of “Dr. Jonathan Levy,” supposedly her lawyer, even though she is a lawyer. Neither of these people actually exist. [Washington Independent]

    And people wonder why the UN can’t get anything done. It’s because they spend their days dealing with shit like this.

  2. ManchuCandidate

    Dear Orly,

    Please think of the UN that helped the Koreans and Cypriots, not the one who let the Arabs and Israelis go at it or watched helplessly in Rwanda and the former Yugo Republics.

    BTW, Kenya is a member of the UN…

    Did she apply for UN protection because she really needs it, or because she thought their helmets would nicely complement her eyeshadow?

    What the hell’s going on today? I wish there was a calendar for sale that would announce holidays like Insane Chattering Paranoid Rightwing Second-Stringers Spew Their Crap All Over the Internet Day or whatever this is. I didn’t even have time to make a covered dish.

  5. SmutBoffin

    This is weird and stupid and hilarious. Orly just doesn’t wanna pay her big court bill, so what’s a dumbass to do?

    Imma go cry to the U.N. about these bills to the power company and “Katya’s Dungeon of Discipline”, BRB.

    Does “Barrack” Obama have anything to do with Barack Obama? Maybe she’s been right about this Barrack character all along.

    Did you see? Dr. Jonathan Levy is the world’s leading authority on the mysterious political organization known as the Intermarium! This is a high-powered player she’s got on her team!

    Sorry, this is my fault. I proudly announced to the household this morning that “this week can’t get any more insane”.

    @ Einstein: Ol’ Crazy Eyes hasn’t been heard from yet this week. She’s probably Friday’s headliner for Wingnuttaggedon Week.

    When I saw this was in the Washington Independent, I thought to myself “could this have been written by David Weigel?” … why yes, yes it was. Is Dave just getting the crazies these days? Oh yeah, the comment section is great. Not sure if some are really Wonketteers — that is how crazy some seem to be, but the birfers are grade-a nutzos.

  11. The Other Sarah T

    “Dr. Taitz, a well known Constitutional attorney…” Well known at Camarillo State, maybe. And “Dr. Taitz” ? Is that “doctor” as in Hook or Detroit ?

  12. JMP

    A while back I was a little on my student loan payments and started getting annoying phone calls from them; now I know that I should have applied for asylum from the UN.

  13. anonymousryan

    I DEMAND that the UN censure KENYA until their AFRICAN PRESIDENT stops threatening poor DOCTOR ORLY TAITZ DDS ESQUIRE. I also DEMAND that the UN extend this protection to DOCTOR CONGRESSMAN RON PAUL MD until this AFRICAN KENYAN DICTATOR is removed from power and replaced with a WHITE CHRISTIAN President who shares at least 66% of his DNA with RONALD REAGAN.

  14. Limeylizzie

    [re=518160]Mr Blifil[/re]: OK I had such a foul visual of Orly getting a ride on said John Bolton’s moustache…Wingnut Love…shudder.

  15. Lascauxcaveman

    Neither of these people actually exist.

    I believe it was Voltaire who said “If Orly Taitz did not exist, it would be necessary for Wonkette to invent her.”

  16. Aloysius

    “Brimstone & CO. is a multijurisdictional law firm – primary licenses in Washington D. C. and Nigeria.”

    Where is her attorney’s birth certificate?

    And why does he want the UN to allow Orly to temporarily deposit money into the UN’s coffers?

    And what is his connection to the Underwear Bomber?

  17. Darkness

    [re=518213]desertwind[/re]: I’m not even going to go look because I have to cling to the belief that you made that up.

  18. Crank Tango

    [re=518203]Gregoire[/re]: with backwards ligature marks? I say it’s worth a try. I just hope she doesn’t david carradine herself. No wait, I do hope that. Sorry.

  19. kudzu

    Don’t these fuckers hate the UN? or is it like Rick Perry, who wants Texas to secede but still wants to get dough from the Feds?

  20. PlanetWingnuta

    ok ok this is my favorite comment to a birther who’s off her rails (*as they all are):

    chrisjay: Lafayme, you’ve gone & crossed the line with your outrageous and unsupportable contention that Elvis is NOT alive. Where do people like you get off making such scurrilous claims? Obviously you are one of the unwashed rabble who were taken in by the “funeral” , as well as the “gravesite” at Graceland. I have been demanding for years that the State of Tennessee produce the ORIGINAL LONGFORM death certificate for Elvis Aaron Presley; those Al Gore-appointed thugs have been evading, obfuscating and LYING! I don’t care who thinks he’s dead—-I know the King lives. I have all the proof you need here at PresleyLives.com ——-see for yourself if you dare.

  21. Mad Brahms

    And with this, all the UN aid workers in Africa drop what they are doing and go on a mad hunt for the Long Form Bird Certificate.

  22. V572625694

    If you had to choose a combination of “professions” that could collectively cause you more pain, expense and misery than any other set, dentist, lawyer and real estate agent would be a strong contender for the best.

    [re=518188]Darkness[/re]: Thanks! I’ve been on an endless conference call and reading this stuff has me all giggly and every now and then I remember that I’m supposed to be participating on the call, so I pop in with a non sequitor based on the comments.

    This comment is my favorite.

    FOR YOUR INFORMATION, CONSERVATIVES WRITE IN ALL CAPS BECAUSE WE ARE VERY, VERY ANGRY! AND ALSO BECAUSE OBAMA’S JACKBOOTED THUGS ARE UNABLE TO READ CAPITAL LETTERS. IT’S TRUE! LOOK IT UP! LEAVE ORLY TAITZ ALONE YOU SOCIALIST FASCIST ANARCHIST CLARINETIST COMMUNISTS! SOME OF US LOVE HER. I HAVE A PICTURE OF HER RIGHT HERE NEXT TO MY PILLS. NO WAIT: THAT’S PETER WELLER IN A BLOND WIG. NURSE, WHERE IS MY PICTURE OF ORLY TAITZ?

    Well played, Derek.

    WELL LETS THINK FOR A MINUTE. OH I FORGOT, NOBODY IN THE SAD LAND I WAS BORN INTO DON’T THINK. I WISH I HAD A WAY TO DO SOMETHING FOR ORLY. I STUMBLED UPON HER WHEN THE SINCLAIR PRESS CONFERENCE TO THE PRESS CLUB ACCURED. IN MY WORLD I PUT ORLY AS THE MOST QUALIFIED PERSON TO EVEN UTTER THE WORDS “I AM AN AMERICAN”. SHE IS THE ONLY TRUE AMERICAN. SOON I WILL MAKE UP MY MIND ON A NEW COUNTRY TO SETTLE IN. ANYONE ALREADY GOT ON THAT BUS YET? SUGGESTIONS? IM THINKING MEXICO. HELL IF PUSH COMES TO SHOVE, FULL ON JUNGLE TO SETTLE INTO.

    ORLY I KNEW THIS WAS GOING TO HAPPEN AND WISH PERSONALLY WISH I WAS ABLE TO PUT A PROTECTIVE SHELL AROUND YOU THAT NO ONE COULD PENETRATE. PEACE TO THE ONLY TRUE AMERICAN. DR. ORLY TAITZ. THE EAGLE OF WHAT WAS AMERICA.

    p.s. people get your head out your shoe and recover your stolen thought process. Hell its too late I am pretty sure. So never mind.

  27. PlanetWingnuta

    [re=518372]snakedart[/re]: oh noez she’ll say Tyler Perry isn’t the Federation President and will want to see his birth certificate in the new timeline.!!!!!!!

  28. S.Luggo

    [re=518171]loquaciousmusic[/re]: The firm consists of two lawyers: Dr. Levy, DDS, and this Nigerian dude who studied in Cuba and is admitted to practice only in the Bahamas. You get what pay for, Orly. Heh.

  29. S.Luggo

    From law.laywers.cornell.edu

    “Dr. Levy is considered one of the world’s leading experts on topics such as the Vatican Bank …”

    That will certainly help.

  30. Berkeley Bear

    [re=518393]S.Luggo[/re]: Sadly, it appears he is a legit PhD (Univ. Cincinnatti) and fellow of Orly’s in the Taft on-line law school alumni group (they must be so proud). He claims he teaches at “prestigious universities” which is code for U Phoenix online or something equally unimpressive, has gone on rants about the Illuminati, is the “acting Attorney General” of the government in exile of some seperatist group in Angola, and absolutely hated Pope John Paul II. Notable cases include representing Chen-Shui Ben, disgraced former President of Taiwan (claiming somehow the US should shelter him from prosecution on corruption on a theory he was an agent of our military), suing the Kuomingtang party (mainly on behalf of backers of Chen-Shui’s party) for recovery of monies the KMT supposedly transferred to various bank accounts in 1950 to pay off defaulted bonds, seeking money from the Vatican for some Ustasha treasury allegedly improperly given to them after WWII, and seeking that FIFA (soccer’s governing body) investigate a frame up of his seperatist group by other Angolan groups in the attack on Togo’s national team a while back. That last one is my favorite – like the UN/Orly shit, it just ignores the fact the body appealed to has absolutely no authority to do what they are asking and wouldn’t give a crap if they could.

    Of course, he declares himself an “expert” on all sorts of crazy crap like this without ever showing his cards/prior experience. Your basic fame whore from hell attorney – he and Orly will get on just fine.

    [re=518217]Carson[/re]: If there is life in outer space, they will never forgive us for sending her there.
    Admittedly, though, it would shorten their search for intelligent life in the universe. “Scratch that planet off–on to Jupiter we go…”

  32. Mad Brahms

    [re=518490]Berkeley Bear[/re]: Ah, Angola! The little (read: Africa’s longest and one of the bloodiest) civil war that could…not ever seem to make the evening news, in spite of the fact that successive American administrations poured cash into right-wing groups for decades with the help of alleged-pariah-state Apartheid South Africa. And oh, what celebrity conservatives it involved!

    Big lawyers have little lawyers
    Upon their backs to bite ‘em,
    And little lawyers have littler lawyers
    And so ad infinitum.

    This weeks batch of meth must have been especially good this week.. or especially bad.

    Barrister & Solicitors based in Nigeria? I think I’ve gotten emails from that law firm.

  35. rmjag

    this little ‘it’ person tries to destroy Obama’s citizenship thru fraud etc n ‘it’ is being persecuted ? That is why ‘it’s’ acquaintances refer to ‘it’ as ‘stinking asshole’ .

  36. One Yield Regular

    This is a fascinating development, but I feel I must withhold judgment until Ms. Taitz’s case has been appealed to the Galactic Federation.

  37. Mad Brahms

    [re=518651]One Yield Regular[/re]: Case refused due to the Prime Directive against interfering in the culture of those who are retarded.
