I believe in the free speech that liberals used to believe in, the economic freedom that conservatives used to believe in, and the personal freedom that America used to believe in.

Orly Taitz Loses Appeal Of Sanctions Order

It’s been awhile since I’ve talked about birther lawyer Orly Taitz, but you may recall that back in October she was sanctioned in the amount of $ 20,000 by Federal Judge Clay Land for one of the birther lawsuits she filed. Taitz called the sanctions a “mockery of justice,” said she had no intention of paying the sanction, and filed an appeal with the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals.

Today, that appeal was denied:

The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals affirms, as expected, the decision of a lower court to fine birther lawyer Orly Taitz $20,000 for her conduct in a lawsuit on behalf of Capt. Connie Rhodes.

“We have fully considered Taitz’s arguments,” the court finds. “We find them unpersuasive and therefore affirm the district court’s sanctions judgment.”



Since we last talked about the dentist/lawyer/real estate agent, she has filed a new suit in her own name in the U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C. and has announced her candidacy for Secretary of State of California.

Orly’s back, folks.

    Not much of a decision. The mind boggles to consider the “substance” of her article.

    That’s “argument,” not “article.”

  3. Let's Be Free says:

    It would make for a great cabinet with Governor Moonbeam.

    In my opinion this is what the small portions of the republican party of “birthers, baggers and blowhards” have brought you. They are good at “Follow the Leader” of their dullard leaders, they listen to Beck, Hedgecock, Hannity, O’Reilly, Rush and Savage and the rest of the Blowhards. Are you surprise at what they do when you know what they think? The world is complicated and most republicans (Hamiliton, Lincoln, Roosevelt) believe that we should use government a little to increase social mobility, now its about dancing around the claim of government is the problem. Although most republicans are trying to distant themselves from this fringe they have a long way to go. And as they said in WACO “We Ain’t Coming Out”.

  5. [...] Shortly after losing the Rhodes v. McDonald case last year, the Federal Judge hearing the case ordered Orly Taitz to tell him why he shouldn’t sanction her for filing a frivolous pleading, Orly responded in the worst possible way, and Judge Land responded by imposing a $ 20,000 Rule 11 sanction against her. Orly called this a mockery of justice, and filed an appeal which was denied several months ago. [...]
