Barack Obama is a source of ultimate frustration for Republicans.  They don’t have anything on him, so they have to make up things.  At least Bill Clinton had the courtesy to get a BJ, so they could overreact as though he lied us into a war or something.  But Obama has a clean slate.  So they call him a Communist, a Socialist, a Nazi, a traitor, and most of all, a Kenyan.  On that subject, here’s some good news.

3taitz looney tunesOrly Taitz, the California dentist and attorney who has gained notoriety for her relentless efforts to prove that President Obama is inelegible for office, suffered another blow last week when an Orange County judge rejected her attempt to retrieve Obama’s college records.

As first reported by the school’s student paper, the Occidental Weekly, Taitz had filed a legal motion to compel Occidental College to release transcripts and other records from when Obama was an undergraduate there in the late ’70s and early ’80s, alleging that Obama was not born in the United States and is currently using a fake social security number. The private college’s counsel, Carl Botterud, pointing to privacy concerns, deemed Taitz’s case "frivolous" and "without merit." The self-proclaimed "queen of the birthers" then argued that the matter of Obama’s alleged foreign birth was important enough to overrule privacy laws…

…Orange County Superior Court Judge Charles Margines rejected Taitz’ argument, citing procedural errors and questioning the quality of her evidence….

“You should know that evidence is not stuff printed from the Internet,” Margines told Taitz, according to the Occidental Weekly.

Margines also ordered Taitz to pay the college $4,000 to cover the resources spent defending itself…

That defeat may well be the last straw needed to end Orly’s Birther rampage, but she still has career opportunities left.  She can go to work for Rupert and become one of the most credible goose-steppers on Faux Noise.  Or she could teabag a fellow Republican in a safely gerrymandered district in 2014, get elected, and take on Michele Bachman for the title Batshit Queen of the House.

  1. Why does the song, 'Beauty School Dropout', come to mind……OOOOOOOOOOO, Birther Queen Shut Down….da da da da….
    I wish they would all just STFU and go away….far away…..say the Caymen Islands or…the Great Pacific Garbage Patch….

  2. Excellent idea Terrie – the Great Pacific Garbage Patch would suit the Birthers very well – after all, they have caused a lot of it and would surely feel at home there!

  3. No President has ever been asked to show his transcripts before- for that matter the Presidents only requirements are that he be born in the godl ole USA and be 32 yrs of age–
    I am so damm sick of all this "birther"  BS—This woman is from Canada , or so I understand–what the hell is her stake in all this ?
    Barack Obama is the 2X elected President– now STFU!!!!!

    • Just to keep our "i's" dotted and our "t's" crossed, you actually have to be 35 (not 32) years old.
      And in addition to the age and "natural born citizen" requirement, there is one more: you have to have lived "within the United States" for 14 years.

    • This creature was actually born in Moldova, she has nothing to do with Canada. We tend to have few racists of this ilk, we ship them back to where they came from, if they come out  with treasonous comments like she does. 

  4. She is on a par with Trump in her theories. Here are just some of them from Wikipedia:
    Taitz alleges that President Obama is not a natural-born citizen of the United States and is therefore ineligible to serve as President. She claims he was born in Kenya and that he falsified his Selective Service papers and his application to the Illinois bar.[22] "I believe [Obama] is the most dangerous thing one can imagine, in that he represents radical communism and radical Islam: He was born and raised in radical Islam, all of his associations are with radical Islam, and he was groomed in the environment of the dirty Chicago mafia. Can there be anything scarier than that?"[23]
    Taitz has made other Obama-related claims, including:

    A number of homosexuals from Obama's former church have died mysteriously.
    Obama has dozens of Social Security numbers, and his passport is inaccurate. Taitz claims that a person who was cooperating with the FBI in connection with Obama's passport died mysteriously, "shot in the head".
    A Kenyan birth certificate with the name "Barack Obama" is authentic.
    Obama's first act as President was to donate money to Hamas, which she claims will be used to build Qassam rockets.
    Obama, or someone connected to him, has made threats to Taitz's life and vandalized her car.[21]
    Obama is having the Federal Emergency Management Agency build internment camps for "Anti-Obama dissidents".[16]
    Osama bin Laden was killed years ago, with his body kept on ice, and the announcement of his death was timed to divert attention from an upcoming court case she is litigating challenging Obama's citizenship.

     
    I think she belongs in a rubber room before she hurts herself or somebody else.
     
     

  5. Sorry Phyllis, being a Canuck, I didn't want the US to try and send her to us, so I checked Wikipedia:

    Orly Taitz was born to a Jewish family in Chişinău, Moldavian SSR in the Soviet Union (present day Moldova). Both of her parents were science teachers.  In 1981, Orly immigrated to Israel, where she obtained a dentistry degree at Hebrew University.  In 1987, she met Yosef Taitz who proposed four months later. Orly immigrated to the United States in May 1987, marrying the Latvian-born Yosef in Las Vegas, Nevada.  Taitz became a naturalized United States citizen in 1992.  She received her law degree from Taft Law School and was admitted to practice law in California in December 2002.

    She is NOT a Canuck by birth, thank goodness.  There is a lot more info on her shenanigans listed in Wikipedia that is a bit of a hoot to read http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orly_Taitz .  I particularly like the one about taking an attorney misconduct decision to SCOTUS because the misconduct sanctions were repeatedly upheld by the lower courts.  It was assigned to Injustice Thomas who denied her request.  Unbelieving, she appealed to Chief Justice Roberts, who in full court, denied it again.   The woman is 7 beers short of a six-pack!  She was sanctioned to the tune of $20,000.
     
    I question whether this will be the end of her birther crap because the woman is a lunatic.  However, it can last no more than 4 more years because at that point, Mr Obama will no longer be POTUS, or she will be in an asylum for the criminally insane, whichever comes first.

    • I got quite a laugh out of her theories on Wikipedia. I find it hard to believe this highly educated woman is so stupid.

    • Noted that Ayn Rand is also from the former USSR.

      • What is that the Russians are attracted to Republican/Teabaggers? . . . or is it the other way around?  Somebody should have told Romney before he declared Russia a US enemy!  Oh, wait!  Maybe that is why he declared Russia the enemy . . . it sent some nut jobs like Rand and Taitz to the US!

        • Under the USSR, they became used to a totalitarian culture based on one party rule.  The Republican party is what is familiar to them.

  6. Michele Bachman, owns the title Batshit Queen of the House, and seriously doubt that Orly Taitz will ever replace Bachman even if Orly were ever elected.

    Orly has had only one issue: The Birther issue of Obama where she has effectively been shut down and put her into her place. Bachman, on the other hand, continues to put herself into many political issues and continues to say the most outrageous comments ever heard in Congress.

    Only one other group has the title of “batshit” and it is the people in Bachman’s district who continue to re-elect her as their “representative”. Now, who do you think who or what deserves the title of “batshit”… lol…

    Ty, Tom.

  7. I saw Orly Taitz being interviewed on TV once.  She has what psychiatrist's call "loose association." She rambles on and on about paranoid right wing gibberish, and her voice gets louder when ever someone tries to save her from tripping over her own tongue.  Her way of being interviewed is to shout down the questions with insane irrelevancies. She is truly obnoxious and I don't even think other birthers could stand listening to her for more than 30 seconds.  Fox couldn't do anything with her.  My guess is that Fox won't even entertain the idea of hiring her. However, I have been stunned before by the things that republicans like, so I know that they could surprise me again with their low expectations for credibility and rational behavior.

  8. What kind of show would Fox giver her anyway?  What would they call it?  My vote is for, "A Dentist Who Is Also A Lawyer Has Delusions of Grandeur."

  9. By this point, you would think all the "birthers" would have gone away, sadly they are not smart enough to do it.
