Back in December 1944, The Nazi Germans were getting invaded by the Russians from the East, and the Americans, British, French, and others from the West. Their factories, homes, and buildings were getting clobbered from the air. Adolph Hitler decided to take a big gamble. He carefully reserved a lot of his tanks and soldiers and then launched a huge do-or-die surprise attack in the West. This was known as The Battle of the Bulge.
Noted legal strategist, Dr. Orly Taitz, Esq., has decided to do the same thing. She, and every other Birther lawyer, has been getting clobbered in court. None of them have ever won a single lawsuit in four years. Because of their crazy and delusional belief system, they have become such a laughingstock that the mainstream Republicans treat them like a pack of lepers.
So, Dr. Taitz carefully saved up her plaintiffs, and resuscitated some of the dead ones down in her secret lab. She stashed away some of her most potent legal claims deep in the Forest Country of Laguna Niguel. Now, she has launched them in a huge surprise attack in California.
This is a HUGE lawsuit. There are almost 40 defendants to date. Her main weapon is the Venerable Fraud charge, which has been supplemented by Aiding and Abetting Fraud. Add to this Rico, Racketeering, Inhumane Deprivation of Midol, Wire Fraud, Misprision of Felony, Violation of the Rights of Free Speech, Violations of The Fifth Amendment, Defamation, Election Fraud, Interstate Teasing of Lawyers, Negligence, Breach of Fiduciary Duty, and Gross Failure To Agree With Orly Taitz.
She is trying to get this certified as a Class Action suit and is asking for a Jury Trial and punitive damages. Copies of this have been filed with several members of Congress, The Department of Justice, The United Nations, The Inter-American Commission For Human Rights, and The State of Georgia. (The American one, not the one over by Russia.)
Like the cornered Germans, this will probably be the last major legal offensive of the cornered Birthers. There will be skirmishes, and some Banzai charges by a few Birthers desperate for attention, but the courts are starting to assess costs against the people foolish enough to file this nonsense. That takes all the fun out of it. Hit and run raids are supposed to hit and run the other person, not your own wallet.
When, not if, this particular matter is dismissed Orly Taitz will probably be facing major monetary sanctions ($50,000+) and costs. The $20,000 sanction obviously didn’t get her attention, and this time she has gone and sued the judge. I would not be surprised if she faces the quick suspension of her law license due to the large number of influential defendants. Clever Democrats may decide to let her play her silly games until after the election for the negative publicity effect.
The comparison between her thinking and Hitler’s goes even further. Because in 1941, Hitler made a major miscalculation and launched an invasion of Russia (Operation Barbarossa), before he had defeated the British. And, when the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, Hitler made another Grossebooboo and declared war on The United States. I guess there is nothing like setting the bar high for yourself.
Sturmfrau Taitz has made the same fatal mistake, assuming her pile of crap doesn’t get quickly dismissed sua sponte by the Court, on its own motion. She is taking on the world in this suit. Yet, she can barely handle her current legal load, which is about 5 or 6 cases. How in the world does she think she can handle a simultaneous counter-attack by 40+ different defense attorneys???
After the tons of paper fall from the sky on her, Taitz will be stuck down in some little cubbyhole beneath all that cellulose, giving rise to Hitler-in-the-Bunker comparisons. She isn’t going to have time to do her blog, or radio talk show interviews. The world might see an occasional photograph of her, looking like crap when she emerges sleepless and zombie-like to pin some medals on Der Birfer Jugend. She has let her temper and megalomania get the best of her. Just like you-know-who.
This is the first of what I expect will be numerous reports on the lawsuit. Again, assuming it lasts more than a few days. Note 2 below contains pdf’s of the lawsuit and exhibits. There are just too many bizarre aspects to this action to adequately cover them in one or two pieces. Hopefully, this post has set the stage, and points out one major glaring flaw in her plan.
Note 1. The Image and The Title. These are both taken from the 1944 World War II battle called the Battle of the Bulge. Wiki says:
The Battle of the Bulge (also known as the Ardennes Offensive and the Von Rundstedt Offensive to the Germans) (16 December 1944 – 25 January 1945) was a major German offensive (die Ardennenoffensive), launched toward the end of World War II through the densely forested Ardennes mountain region of Wallonia in Belgium, and France and Luxembourg on the Western Front. The Wehrmacht’s code name for the offensive was Unternehmen Wacht am Rhein (“Operation Watch on the Rhine”), after the German patriotic hymn Die Wacht am Rhein. The French name for the operation is Bataille des Ardennes.
By 21 December the Germans had surrounded Bastogne, which was defended by the 101st Airborne Division and Combat Command B of the 10th Armored Division. Conditions inside the perimeter wetough—most of the medical supplies and medical personnel had been captured. Food was scarce, and by 22 December artillery ammunition was restricted to 10 rounds per gun per day. The weather cleared the next day, however, and supplies (primarily ammunition) were dropped over four of the next five days.
Despite determined German attacks, however, the perimeter held. The German commander, Lt. Gen. Heinrich Freiherr von Lüttwitz, requested Bastogne’s surrender. When Brig. Gen. Anthony McAuliffe, acting commander of the 101st, was told of the Nazi demand to surrender, in frustration he responded, “Nuts!” After turning to other pressing issues, his staff reminded him that they should reply to the German demand. One officer, Lt. Col. Harry Kinnard, noted that McAuliffe’s initial reply would be “tough to beat.” Thus McAuliffe wrote on the paper, which was typed up and delivered to the Germans, the line he made famous and a morale booster to his troops: “NUTS!” That reply had to be explained, both to the Germans and to non-American Allies.[m]
There are some movies about this battle, but I usually don’t watch Army and war movies.
For all the ESL’s, Bilge means:
Nonsense, foolishness or the lowest parts of a ship that fill with stinking water.
Sturmfuhrer; Wiki says this is:
Sturmführer was a paramilitary rank of the Nazi Party which began as a title used by the Sturmabteilung (SA) in 1925 and became an actual SA rank in 1928. Translated as “assault leader”, the origins of the rank dated to the First World War when the title of Sturmführer was used by leaders of German shock troops and special action companies.
Birfarossa is a word play on Barbarossa, explained above, and is a jab at Taitz for trying to fight too many people at once.
Band of Anti-Birthers is a word play on Band of Brothers, the TV series about the 101st Airborne soldiers.
