Orly Taitz Loses Yet Another Birther Case, Pisses Off Federal Judge In The Process

by @ 12:50 pm on September 16, 2009. Filed under Barack Obama, Obama Derangement Syndrome, Politics

As promised, the Judge who heard Orly Taitz’s latest birther lawsuit issued an opinion today, and it’s not a good one for the lawyer/dentist/real estate agent:

Orly Taitz_0195As-not-cropped-thumb-280x350U.S. District Court Judge Clay Land today tossed out a complaint by an Army captain fighting deployment to Iraq by questioning the legitimacy of President Barack Obama.

Land also put attorney Orly Taitz, who represents Capt. Connie Rhodes and is a leader in the national “birther” movement, on notice by stating that she could face sanctions if she ever files a similar “frivolous” lawsuit in his court.

“(Rhodes) has presented no credible evidence and has made no reliable factual allegations to support her unsubstantiated, conclusory allegations and conjecture that President Obama is ineligible to serve as president of the United States,” Land states in his order. “Instead, she uses her complaint as a platform for spouting political rhetoric, such as her claims that the president is ‘an illegal usurper, an unlawful pretender, [and] an unqualified imposter.’”

(…)

In his order, Land states in a footnote that Obama defeated seven opponents in a “grueling” primary campaign that cost the contenders more than $300 million. Obama then moved on to the general election, where he faced Sen. John McCain, who Land states got $84 million to wage his campaign.

“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,” Land says.

The judge adds that Congress hasn’t started impeachment proceedings against Obama, appears satisfied that he can hold the office and has rejected the suggestion he isn’t.

Ouch, that’s gotta hurt.

Update: Here’s the Dismissal Order:

    Opps,

    Something tells me however that she will just find another court to pester. At what point does the state bar association step in?

  2. I am literally BEGGING you to leave Orly Taitz’s photo out of these posts. On my knees, hands clasped in prayer, tears streaming down my face BEGGING.

    She should be a Democrat Congresscritter she is so very unattractive.
