assad 2

Long Live Syrian Electronic Army!!!

Birthers is OK People who are right Obama is not illegible for President Office! You Americans listen long time to very smart Orly Taitz lawyer and dentist person! Listen long time to Markio Apuzzo two he is LAWYER!!! Make Obama leave office like frog! All Tommyhawk Missiles fired will be null and void! All bombs will be null and void! Everything all null and void!

You IMPEACH him now from overpasses! You are to make plenty big signs! America listen to Birther people! Listen to Sheriff Apuzzo also and cowboy posse people with hats!

Long Live Syrian Electronic Army who hacks up this website with very good hack with easy to guess password!

Hah!!!

SEA

UPDATE!!!

Holy Crap!!! Apparently The Birther Think Tank was hacked two hours ago by the Syrian Electronic Army!!! I guess ” _ _ lter_ _ _ lter” wasn’t a very good password after all. I have changed it, and my email accounts to be on the safe side! I am back in control of my website and hopefully the Syrian Electronic Army will not come back. I am going to leave this post up because I am not one to let a good crisis go to waste! If the pro-Assad Syrians think that Orly Taitz is very smart, and also Mario Apuzzo, then that is certainly worth noting! I think they meant to say Sheriff Arpaio, not Sheriff Apuzzo. And eligible instead of illegible. Other than that, their grammar and sentence structure are no worse than I see from many American Birthers. I am going to add some tags to this so that other unsuspecting Americans will be alerted.

Sooo, let this post serve as a warning to everybody to make sure your passwords are not too easy to guess, or else the Syrians may come after you, too!!!

Did The Whistleblower Give Orly Taitz The Slip???

lovelace 3

She Wanted To Believe So Badly,  That She Swallowed It Hook, Line, And Sinker

A little over two months ago,  on June 19, 2013, Orly Taitz went to a Tea Party rally in Washington D.C. where she met someone [allegedly named Laurie Hathaway]  who claimed to be an employee of HESC, a student loan servicing company.  She  told Taitz that she had copies of papers showing that Obama attended Columbia as a foreign student, from Indonesia. Then, the Whistleblower disappeared for a few days, and then reappeared, then went silent again.

The Birther Think Tank did 4 separate articles on the Whistleblower, which are linked in Note 2, below. The last one of those articles was on July 11, 2013. I never put much credence in the story, and have been keeping an eye on Taitz’s website to see if anything definite ever surfaced.  If I have successfully navigated her confusing website, where her every random thought seems to generate a post, there are five more articles on the Whistleblower, and one duplicative “press release” which I omitted.

To make it easier to read, I have liberally copied and pasted from her website, with the link back to her website. On August 10, she indicates that she managed to get back in touch with her contact, who was supposedly under FBI surveillance and harassment. This is evident from paragraphs 10, 11, and 12 of her affidavit to Darrell Issa, which I bolded, and from the title of the post which is underlined:

Darrell Issa
Chair of the House Oversight Committee
Re Harassment and intimidation of the whistle blowers by the FBI.
Request for help and assistance.

SWORN AFFIDAVIT OF ATTORNEY ORLY TAITZ

1. My name is Orly Taitz. I am a licensed attorney and a licensed Doctor of Dental Surgery. As an attorney and an officer of the court I swear under the penalty of perjury that all of the information below is true and correct and to the best of my knowledge and informed consent.

2. I am a President of Defend our Freedoms Foundation which is designed to preserve the constitutional freedoms of the U.S. citizens. In my youth I lived in the communist dictatorship of the Soviet Union and I am greatly concerned about the loss of the constitutional freedoms of the US citizens in the past few years.

3. In May of 2013 I participated at a Washington DC rally organized by a number of the US congressmen protesting the mega amnesty of millions of illegals that is currently pushed by the Democratic party as well as targeting of the conservative organizations by the IRS.

4. At the rally I met a whistle blower, employee of the HESC -Higher Education Services Corporation, Ms. Laurie Hathaway.

5. Ms. Hathaway advised me that  she is desperately trying to provide the public with evidence of fraud committed by Barack Obama, specifically the fact that Barack Obama received an educational loan from HESC as a foreign citizen, a citizen of Indonesia. As a citizen of Indonesia he is not eligible to be the U.S. President. Ms. Hathaway stated that she forwarded this information to Sheriff Arpaio as well.

6. Ms. Hathaway has sworn to me that she personally saw the documents, showing Barack Obama listed as a foreign national, citizen of Indonesia in his loan documents.

7. Ms. Hathaway stated that the documents are never discarded and are kept in the vault at the HESC head quarters at Buffalo, New York. She advised me that other employees of the HESC saw the same documents and aware of Obama’s loans received based on his status of a foreign student and fraud committed by Obama in asserting his eligibility for the U.S. Presidency claiming the U.S. citizenship, while retaining the Indonesian citizenship.

8. I did my due diligence and checked and verified that Laurie Hathaway is indeed an employee of HESC in Buffalo, New York. I have in my position her e-mail address at the HESC and other identifying information.

9. Ms. Hathaway promised to obtain a copy of the document and forward it to me.

10. After the meeting I had one or two phone conversations with Ms. Hathaway and received one or two e-mails from her.

11. Shortly thereafter Ms. Hathaway’s cell phone was disconnected and nobody responded at her home number.

12. On 08.10.2013 I tried to contact her again. As I was leaving a message for her, a man answered the phone. The man sounded very frightened and asked me not to call or e-mail Ms. Hathaway because FBI is investigating  Ms. Hathaway because she blew the whistle and provided information to me. They are afraid of the FBI. This phone conversation took place at 10:59 am, PST on 08.10.2013.

13. Intimidation and harassment of the whistle blower Laurie Hathaway by Holder Department of Justice and Mueller/Comey FBI is akin to the intimidation of citizens by the Hitler NAZI Gestapo or SS troops. This nation is rapidly becoming another NAZI tyranny, unless this is stopped by someone in the  U.S. Congress or Judiciary who still retains one drop of decency, integrity, moral values and respect for the rule of law and the Constitution.  

I am attaching herein a 146 file of additional evidence showing the citizen of Indonesia, Barack Obama, using a stolen Social Security number and fabricated IDs as a basis of his identity  and eligibility to the U.S. Presidency and in order to defraud the U.S. citizens and usurp the position of the U.S. President and Commander-in Chief based on fraud, harassment, intimidation and use of multiple agencies of the U.S. government for purposes of terror an harassment of whistle blowers. I am prepared to testify before the U.S. Congress and attest to the authenticity of each and every document in the file as well as provide names of multiple other whistle blowers against Obama being terrorized and intimidated by the Department of Justice/FBI, other governmental officials, as well as by a number of state and federal judges.  

I am requesting an immediate investigation by the U.S. Congress of  the fact that a citizen of Indonesia, Barack Obama, is usurping the U.S. Presidency based on fraud, harassment,  intimidation and use of  stolen and fabricated IDs. I am also requesting a congressional investigation of the employees of the U.S. government, including employees of the Department of Justice and the FBI, federal and State judges, who are criminally complicit in the cover up of Obama’s fraudulent IDs and criminally complicit in terror and harassment of the whistle blowers who provided the aforementioned information to me.

End of Affidavit.

 Dr. Orly Taitz, ESQ

08.10.2013

Another problem seems to have arisen. In her original affidavit of June 19, 2013, Taitz said:

6.   Whistleblower stated that she and several other employees made copies of the aforementioned foreign student record for Mr. Obama in case someone in the corporation management decides to destroy the original records.

I read that as meaning the Whistleblower had her own copy of the alleged documents. Now, look at paragraphs 6 and 9 above:

6. Ms. Hathaway has sworn to me that she personally saw the documents, showing Barack Obama listed as a foreign national, citizen of Indonesia in his loan documents.

9. Ms. Hathaway promised to obtain a copy of the document and forward it to me.

It doesn’t look like the Whistleblower actually has the paperwork. Next, in response to some criticism of her story, she made this post the next day on August 11, 2013:

TWO – August 11, 2013 Post

Posted on | August 11, 2013 | 1 Comment

(Title)   More information regarding HESC employee, whistle blower Laurie Hathaway, who is being harassed by the FBI due to the fact that she provided Attorney Orly Taitz information on Obama’s Indonesian citizenship and the fact that he received  HESC foreign citizen student loans

Some Obama operatives have attacked me, claiming that information regarding FBI investigation of HESC employee Laurie Hathaway is not true. They are claiming this for the following reasons:

a. the phone call was made on Saturday and HESC is closed on Saturday

b. FBI does not tell employees that they are being investigated.

c. HESC is in New York and would not be dealing with records from Occidental college

here is the response from attorney Orly Taitz:

a. the call was made not to HESC, but to Laurie’s home phone number, land line, which she gave me and I have in my possession. Last 2 digits are “76″

b. FBI questions individuals whom they investigate, as such Laurie knows that she is being investigated

c. Barack Obama was a resident of New York state while he studied at Columbia University, which is located in New York City. There are millions of individuals around the country who are residents of different states while on green card, student visas and so on and who are citizens of other countries. Keep in mind, Obama was removed from his mother’s passport when he obtained his Indonesian citizenship.

After this post, The Albany Times Union ran a story on Taitz and the HESC Whistleblower,  (See Note 3, below.) prompting this outburst:

—–BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE—–
Hash: SHA1

(Title)   HESC admits that Laurie Hathaway indeed an employee there, but claims not to have Obama’s records

Mr. Seiler
you wrote a defamatory article and did not include any documents

1. I demand that you provide your readers with actual documents
Please, see attached Obama’s record from Columbia university
I obtained it from the Student Clearing house. Military officer
Pamela Barnett received the same records. It shows Obama lying
about the length of his education in Columbia university. If you
look at the bottom of the page, you will see that he went to
Columbia for only 9 months, not 2 years, as he claims in his
biography. The question is, why is he lying about it? Please,
contact Columbia university and inquier about this record

2. I misspoke by stating Buffalo, NY, instead of Albany NY.
Ms. Hathaway works in Albany and she personally saw the records
there.

I believe HESC used the error in the name of the city to obfuscate
the records. I reside in CA, not in NY, and I did not know about HESC or Laurie
Hathaway.

3. There are other employees who saw Obama’s records. There is an
employee by first name Nick, he works with Laurie Hathaway.

Next,  in post number Four, Taitz appeals for her Flying Monkeys to find someone named “Nick,” who works with the Whistleblower and may have a copy of the documents. In paragraph 4, she is trying to find out if the FBI is investigating the Whistleblower which indicates to me that she once again lost contact with her.

FOUR – August 13, 2013 Post

Posted on | August 13, 2013 | 8 Comments

(Title)   HESC in Albany New York admitted that whistle blower Laurie Hathaway indeed works for them, but claim that they do not have records of  foreign student  loans for Obama or Soetoro.

Laurie Hathaway, whistle blower from HESC gave Taitz a name of yet another employee by name Nick, who works with her and who, also, examined Obama’s foreign student loan documents.

I am asking my supporters to contact HESC and request clarification, whether:

1. HESC does not have records now, but they might have existed before or whether

2.they have records of all loans received  from 1979 until now  and among all of these loans there was never a loan given to a student by last name Obama or Soetoro or Soebarkah or Bounel.

3. seek a response from Obama. As Obama states that he finished paying his student loans only in 2004, he admitted that he received student loans and the public would like to know from which institutions did he get student loans or grants, specifically in light of revelations by the whistle blower . As Obama stated that he came from a poor family and he went to all expensive private schools: Punahoa high school, Occidental college, Columbia university and Harvard, there should be multiple loans. Where did he get those loans?

4. contact Albany NY FBI and request information, whether they are investigating a whistle blower Laurie Hathaway for blowing the whistle on Obama and HESC and alerting an attorney that Obama received a student loan from HESC as a foreign student and is hiding this information and HESC is hiding this information from the public as well.

Finally, by August 14, 2013 the Whistleblower’s FaceBook page is down and Taitz is trying to make contact with some of her friends.

FIVE – August 14, 2013 Post

Posted on | August 14, 2013 | 15 Comments

(Title)   Can someone get in touch with Jocelyn Levy, who works with Laurie Hathaway at HESC, and see if she has a copy of Obama’s foreign student loan documents

Hathaway’s facebook page is deleted but three of her friends are Jocelyn levy (works at same place), cherylynn brewer, janet sweener. also work at same place Kimberly king, brenda eipp, kim vacc, bill ridings, anita norton Phillips, john j mullen , Karen Davidson Larsen, lori reinhart.

My GUESS is, that Laurie Hathaway is no longer available to Taitz, and is probably hiding out from her. It also looks like the incriminating documents don’t yet have an earthly manifestation. Thus, the question I asked in my first article on this seems to be answered. Taitz found a Smokeblower, not a Whistleblower.

Note 1. The Image. This is the actress, Linda Lovelace, from a 1972 movie about Watergate, called Deep Throat. Which two years later caused President Nixon to resign. I have not seen the movie, but I think she played the Whistleblower part.

Note 2. Previous Whistleblower Articles: Here they are in chronological order:

Did Orly Taitz Find A Whistleblower Or A Smokeblower???

Whistle Stop Or Obot Prank???

Taitz’s Whistleblower Still Blowing!!!

Where Oh Where Can The Whistleblower Be???

Note 3. The Albany Times Union Story:  I am not sure what she is complaining about. The story was pretty neutral. It may be found here:

http://www.timesunion.com/local/article/Birther-Proof-is-in-agency-s-safe-4729488.php

Note 4. For ESLs. The Image Easter Egg is a word play on “getting hosed” which can mean getting taken in by a con artist, or putting on hosiery as in the picture.  To “swallow” a story is to believe it, when perhaps one shouldn’t.   To accept without question, protest, or resentment.  <swallow an insult> <a hard story to swallow>

Hook, line, and sinker is an idiomatic phrase meaning totally or completely.  She fell for our story hook, line, and sinker. They believed every word hook, line, and sinker.


Ornery Orly Taitz Calls Out The Arizona Kid!!! (Or, Ghostwriters In Disguise???)

Calamity Jane 2

Well, Zullo, I Say You’re A Dirty, Lowdown, Yellow, Stinking, Bushwhacking Varmint!

Ornery Orly has just fired another broadside at Deputy Mike “The Arizona Kid” Zullo, and his enablers World Net Daily, Carl Gallups, and Sheriff Joe Arpaio. It is such a comparatively good and well-written Orly  rant, that I have posted the whole thing, with a link below so you can check out the comments:

====================

More general talk from WND, Carl Gallops and Zullo-Arpaio camp, however so far no criminal complaint filed by Arpaio, no new evidence made public, just general talk with nothing to back it up

More general talk from WND, Carl Gallops and Zullo-Arpaio camp, however so far no criminal complaint filed by Arpaio, no new evidence made public, just general talk with nothing to back it up.

As always I see more general statements and talk coming from Zullo-Arpaio camp and their channels of advertising and fund raising: Carl Gallops and WND. In the articles published lately they stated that Arpaio-Zullo are talking to some congressmen and they have some affidavit from an expert Reed Hays.

The problem is that we heard this general talk before. There are no names of congressmen, affidavit of Reed Hayes was not made public, we do not know what is in it and most importantly Arpaio-Zullo never filed a criminal complaint against Obama. One can talk generalities until the cows come home. And then what?

a. Kessler stated that Zullo demanded that Kessler sign a non-disclosure agreement. Kessler stated that a bona fide police officer would put prosecuting a crime first, publishing books second. He was questioning why did Zullo seek a non-disclosure agreement from Kessler? Was it because Zullo wanted to keep this alleged affidavit hidden until he publishes his book? Until WND and Carl Galllops promote this book? Any value of an affidavit, is in   court. If it was not submitted to court and published in a book, it is worthless.

b. Kessler stated that in one of the shows Carl Gallops stated that between Arpaio and Zullo there are some 80 years of police work. Arpaio was in law enforcement for some 50 years, so people assumed that Zullo has some 30 years of experience. Kessler stated that he questioned Zullo how many years he worked as a cop, and he stated that Zullo responded that he was a cop only for 5 years. That is not much.

You can see that when I report on this site , I publish the evidence, actual pleadings, file the actual cases. The public has all the evidence.

Tell Arpaio, Zullo and their channels of distribution: WND and Carl Gallops: we need real action, real complaint to be filed by Arpaio. If he has an expert testimony, he needs to file it with the criminal complaint before something happens to the witness and he is no longer willing or able to testify. Sheriff Arpaio: do your job as a sheriff and file the criminal complaint or refund   the donations that you and Zullo collected telling the public that you as a Sheriff are working on a criminal case.  We need the real complaint, we do not need more book sales. If members of Congress decide to act, they will act. However, the only reason Brian Riley brought to you, Arpaio, a criminal complaint signed by 250 citizens of Maricopa County, AZ, is because Congress was not doing anything and the public wanted you as a sheriff to act and file a criminal complaint against Obama for running for President in your county on basis of fraud, based on fabricated and stolen IDs. You confirmed that it was a 100% fraud, but you never filed a complaint.  General amorphous talk does not do any good to anyone.  Talk is cheap, actions speak louder than words.

http://www.orlytaitzesq.com/?p=428114#comments

====================

She has flatly called the whole bunch out. Again. But, what I noticed immediately is that this rant is much better written and presented than most of her efforts to date. I suspect that somebody helped her out with this. Carl Gallups last name is mis-spelled as Gallops, which is what a spell checker would probably indicate. When did Orly ever use spell check???

I could be wrong, because there are a couple of clauses where her Boris and Natasha accent shows through the lack of an article, such as:

the public wanted you as a sheriff to act and file a criminal complaint against Obama for running for President in your county on [missing a “the”] basis of fraud, based on fabricated and stolen IDs.

And, there are the numerous strings of phrases missing conjunctions, which add to the broken and clipped  Bullwinkolocity sound, such as:

You can see that when I report on this site , I publish the evidence, actual pleadings,[missing “and”] file the actual cases.

Then, other sentences that are hybrids, both with and without conjunctions, indicating some kind of grammatical evolution:

Tell Arpaio, Zullo and their channels of distribution: WND and Carl Gallops: we need real action, [missing conjunction “and” and missing article “a”] real complaint to be filed by Arpaio.

But then again, you have phrases such as these, which do not sound anything like Orly:

One can talk generalities until the cows come home.

General amorphous talk does not do any good to anyone.

Amazingly,  you actually see the use of  relevant pronouns [egs. “that”] in some of the dependent clauses, more than once in some sentences!

Kessler stated that in one of the shows Carl Gallops stated that between Arpaio and Zullo there are some 80 years of police work.

Overall, it wasn’t as tortuous or torturous as reading through most of her writings. My best GUESS is that the rant was originally written by Orly, and then dressed up a little by somebody. But this is only one rant, and you can’t get a pattern from one rant. But just like with real ghosts, once you see one, you start looking over your shoulder.

Note 1. The Image. This is Doris Day playing a lovable rough and tumble brawler, in the 1953 film, Calamity Jane. There really was such a person, whose interesting life is recounted at Wiki. That is, assuming she really was Calamity Jane, Indian fighter, etc.  It appears that the moniker, Calamity Jane, is an alias! There are also suspicious documents and age discrepancies!!! Here are a few excerpts so you can judge for yourself:

Martha Jane Canary (May 1, 1852 – August 1, 1903), better known as Calamity Jane, was an American frontierswoman, and professional scout best known for her claim of being an acquaintance of Wild Bill Hickok, but also for having gained fame fighting Indians. She is said to have also exhibited kindness and compassion, especially to the sick and needy. This contrast helped to make her a famous frontier figure.

Martha Jane was involved in several campaigns in the long-running military conflicts with Native American Indians. Her unconfirmed claim was that:

“It was during this campaign [in 1872–1873] that I was christened Calamity Jane. It was on Goose Creek, Wyoming where the town of Sheridan is now located. Capt. Egan was in command of the Post. We were ordered out to quell an uprising of the Indians, and were out for several days, had numerous skirmishes during which six of the soldiers were killed and several severely wounded. When on returning to the Post we were ambushed about a mile and a half from our destination. When fired upon Capt. Egan was shot. I was riding in advance and on hearing the firing turned in my saddle and saw the Captain reeling in his saddle as though about to fall. I turned my horse and galloped back with all haste to his side and got there in time to catch him as he was falling. I lifted him onto my horse in front of me and succeeded in getting him safely to the Fort. Capt[.] Egan on recovering, laughingly said: ‘I name you Calamity Jane, the heroine of the plains.’ I have borne that name up to the present time.”

As reported in the Anaconda Standard (Montana, Apr. 19, 1904): Captain Jack Crawford, who served under both Generals Wesley Merritt and George Crook, stated, Calamity Jane “…never saw service in any capacity under either General Crook or General Miles. She never saw a lynching and never was in an Indian fight. She was simply a notorious character, dissolute and devilish, but possessed a generous streak which made her popular.”

It may be that she exaggerated or completely fabricated this story. Even back then not everyone accepted her version as true. A popular belief is that she instead acquired it as a result of her warnings to men that to offend her was to “court calamity”. It appears possible that Jane was not part of her name until the nickname was coined for her.

In 1893, Calamity Jane started to appear in Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show as a storyteller. She also participated in the 1901 Pan-American Exposition. At that time, she was depressed and an alcoholic. Jane’s addiction to liquor was evident even in her younger years. For example, on June 10, 1876, she rented a horse and buggy in Cheyenne for a mile-or-so joy ride to Fort Russell and back, but Calamity was so drunk that she passed right by her destination without noticing it and finally ended up about 90 miles away at Fort Laramie.

By the start of the 20th century, Madame Dora DuFran was still going strong when Jane returned to the Black Hills in 1903. For the next few months, Jane earned her keep by cooking and doing the laundry for Dora’s brothel girls in Belle Fourche. In July, she travelled to Terry, South Dakota. While staying in the Calloway Hotel on August 1, 1903, she died at the age of 51 (or 53 or 56). It was reported that she had been drinking heavily on board a train and became very ill. The train’s conductor carried her off the train and to a cabin, where she died soon after. In her belongings, a bundle of letters to her daughter was found, which she had never sent. Some of these letters were set to music in an art song cycle by 20th-century composer Libby Larsen called Songs From Letters. (These letters were first made public by Jean McCormick as part of her claim to be the daughter of Jane and Hickok – but the authenticity of these letters is not accepted by some, largely because there is no non-McCormick document supposedly written by Jane and there is ample evidence that Jane was functionally illiterate.)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calamity_Jane

Note 2. The Caption. For ESL’s the Image mouseover Easter Egg is a word play on “bar” which is both a place to drink, and a word for the legal profession and the courtGhostwriters In Disguise??? is a word play on a famous cowboy song, Ghost Riders In The Sky. It all fits in with the Western theme of the Cold Case Posse, The Arizona Kid, and Ornery Orly. Here is a youtube version by The Sons of the Pioneers:

Note 3. Ghostwriters. They may also edit and do general repairs as Wiki points out:

A ghostwriter is a writer  who writes books, articles, stories, reports, or other texts that are officially credited to another person. Celebrities, executives, and political leaders often hire ghostwriters to draft or edit autobiographies, magazine articles, or other written material. In music, ghostwriters are often used for writing songs and lyrics for popular music genres. Screenplay authors can also use ghost writers to either edit or rewrite their scripts in order to improve them, increasing their chances to be optioned or produced. Also, ghost writers may work on accompanying documents, such as treatments for screenplays.

Ghostwriters may have varying degrees of involvement in the production of a finished work. Some ghostwriters are hired to edit and clean up a rough draft, others are hired to do most of the writing based on an outline provided by the credited author. For some projects, ghostwriters will do a substantial amount of research, as in the case of a ghostwriter who is hired to write an autobiography for a well-known person. Ghostwriters are also hired to write fiction in the style of an existing author, often as a way of increasing the number of books that can be published by a popular author. Ghostwriters will often spend a period from several months to a full year researching, writing, and editing nonfiction works for a client, and they are paid either per page, with a flat fee, or a percentage of the royalties of the sales, or some combination thereof. The ghostwriter is sometimes acknowledged by the author or publisher for his or her writing services.

Where Oh Where Can The Whistleblower Be???

whistling-in-the-dark-rutherford-skelton-grey

As Much As They Practiced, They Could Never Outwhistle Orly In The Dark

On June 20, 2013 we discovered that Orly Taitz had supposedly found a Whistleblower:

1.    On 06.19.2013 I participated In a rally in front of the U.S. Capitol.

2.   At the rally I met a whistleblower,  who is an employee of the Higher Education Services Corporation In Albany New York. (Hereinafter HESC)

3.   The whistleblower  advised me that she is seeking to provide to a judge evidence of fraud.

4.   The whistleblower  stated that she personally reviewed financial aid records of Mr. Barack Obama. She reviewed  the financial aid microfilm, where it stated that Mr. Obama received financial aid as a foreign student, citizen of Indonesia.

Then, on June 22, 2013 we all had a scare when the Whistleblower was temporarily out of touch:

I am extremely concerned that i was not able to get a response from the whistle -blower either through e-mails or phone . I talked to her at the rally on WD, from what I understand she was at work on Th, but she has not been responding since.

Later that same day, the World breathed a collective sigh of relief as the Whistleblower re-emerged:

I received an answer from the whistle-blower. She stated that there was a name change, that it used to be HEA, Higher Education aid, but later was changed to HESC-Higher Education Services Corporation.

according to the whistle-blower Obama received a grant, not a loan and it was for him as a foreign student, citizen of Indonesia . I am trying to see, if he got such aid for all three universities he went to.

Each of these developments was the subject of an article here, all of which may be found in Note 3., below. Now, 16 days later and the Whistleblower has all but disappeared from view. There was a brief mention of her by Taitz in this comment on June 26, 2013:

(Click On Image To Make Larger.)

(Click On Image To Make Larger.)

But overall, since June 22, 2013 there has been no major story on her website about the Whistleblower. Maybe there is nothing wrong, but after following Orly Taitz’s antics for a few years, I have to think something is up.  Taitz is nothing if not energetic, and the alleged documents would go a long way to proving her case.  Even if they did not prove a foreign birth, they would certainly embarrass Obama.

I don’t see her just finding better things to do, like looking for old post office date stamps. She has the means to hop a plane to upstate New York, and get the copies.  So what has happened? Did Orly get punked? Enquiring Minds want to know.

Note 1. The Image. This is from the 1941 Red Skelton film, Whistling In The Dark. Wiki says:

Whistling in the Dark is the first of three comedy films starring Red Skelton as Wally “the Fox” Benton, who writes and acts in radio murder mysteries. Wally is kidnapped by a greedy cult leader (played by Conrad Veidt), who threatens to kill Wally’s girlfriend (portrayed in all three films by Ann Rutherford) and another young woman unless he concocts a perfect murder. The film was based on the Broadway play of the same name by Laurence Gross and Edward Childs Carpenter. Uncredited contributing writer Elliott Nugent wrote and directed the earlier film adaptation of the same name.

The two sequels are Whistling in Dixie (1942) and Whistling in Brooklyn (1943).

Note 2. The Caption.  The idiom, whistling in the dark means, to guess aimlessly; to speculate as to a fact. Examples, Am I close, or am I just whistling in the dark? She was just whistling in the dark and had no idea of what was going on.

Orly Taitz: Will The Judge Be Her Chum???

vampira

She Was So Busy Crowing, She Didn’t Notice Her Hands Were Stinky

In the recent Loco Motion article here, (Doing The Loco Motion!!!) we discussed Taitz’s mistake  in assuming that the default process for judgements also applies to Motions. First, keep in mind that the word CHUM has two meanings.

Noun

1. A close friend.
2. Chopped fish, fish fluids, and other material thrown overboard as angling bait.

Verb

1. Be friendly to or form a friendship with someone.
2. Use chum as bait when fishing.

Now, it is time to focus in on one of her specific requests. (In Note 2 below I copied and pasted her motion into a word processor to make it easier to read. Plus, I cleaned it up a little. I also made a pdf.)  Here are paragraphs 6 and 7 from her motion:

6.    Plaintiff, who is an attorney from the state of California, filed this case, as she was seeking to uphold constitutional freedoms, as a president for a not for profit Defend Our Freedoms foundation. She spent three years working on this case. She was also subjected to harassment and defamation as defense claimed that her actions were frivolous.

7.     Not only interests of Justice would justify granting her motion for reconsideration under the Rule 60B(2),(6), but interests of Justice would justify sanctions against the defense for the reasonable value of time Taitz wasted in court for the past three years and abuse and defamation she was subjected to due to frivolous actions by the defense.

I think that Taitz has opened a bucket of worms with this particular request. Judges have a great deal of discretion in Motions of this kind.  Judge Lamberth has made been required to make numerous Orders in this case, many dealing with Taitz’s inexplicable inability to properly redact, scratch out, or “x” out the first 5 numbers in Obama’s social security number as is required by Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 5.2(a)(1). A pdf copy of four Orders in this matter are found in Note 3 below.

As Judge Lamberth pointed out in his previous Order and Memorandum (Oct. 17, 2011) concerning the previous round of Taitz Motions For Reconsideration:

While district courts enjoy discretion over the decision whether to grant a motion for reconsideration under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 59(e), such motions are “disfavored” and are reserved for “extraordinary circumstances.” Liberty Prop. Trust v. Republic Props. Corp., 570 F. Supp. 2d 95, 97 (D.D.C. 2008) (quoting Niedermeir v. Office of Baucus, 153 F. Supp. 2d 23, 28 (D.D.C. 2001)). In seeking reconsideration, a party must show that “there has been an intervening change of controlling law, that new evidence is available, or that granting the motion is necessary to correct a clear error or to prevent manifest injustice.” Id.

There is no new evidence, so her Motion is going nowhere. However, we may also obtain a broad hint as to how credible Judge Lamberth finds Taitz’s claims and how likely he is to be her pal, and grant her fees. In Note 1 of the above Oct. 17, 2011 Order:

1 The Court is loath to dignify plaintiff’s allegations of fraud with a response on the merits. However, suffice it to say that plaintiff’s argument is premised on the incorrect assumption that Social Security numbers assigned prior to 1973 have any correlation to the recipient’s residence, see Employer Filing Instructions and Information, http://www.socialsecurity.gov/employer/stateweb.htm (“Prior to 1973, social security numbers were assigned by our field offices. The [first three] number[s] merely established that his/her card was issued by one of our offices in that State.”). Plaintiff’s entire premise is totally defeated by a cursory examination of this site, which demonstrates that plaintiff’s allegations lack any basis in fact.

When a court is “loath to dignify” a Plaintiff’s allegations, that does not bode well. Judge Lamberth also gives a slight clue as to how he views Taitz’s claims and professionalism in other Orders in this case. From his decision of a few weeks ago, June 7, 2013:

This Court has reminded the plaintiff of this on multiple occasions. As the Court pointed out in its July 2011 Memorandum and Order, “[t]he Court will not tolerate plaintiff’s repeated violations of this Rule.. . . There is no logical explanation [plaintiff] can provide as to why she is now wasting the Court’s time, as well as staff’s time, with these improper redactions. ”Mem. & Order 1, 3, ECF No. 30.

Moreover, as the Court has previously noted, “repeated violations of the Rules are in fact sanctionable, even sua sponte.” Id. at 2.

The Court has declined to previously impose sanctions because the defendant has not sought them. However, the Court has directed that prior improper submissions “be kept for consideration of possible sanctions against plaintiff.” Order, July 25, 2011, ECF No. 29.

Wow! Lamberth clearly found that she was wasting the Court’s time. But, that doesn’t necessarily mean he finds her either lazy or stupid. Does it??? Let’s look at his language from a July 25, 2011 Order:

Taitz v Astrue July 2011 jpeg

(Click On Image To Make Larger.)

 

Hmmm. I think if a Judge muses whether an attorney is “displaying her own stupidity”,  then he is unlikely to grant that same attorney fees for “the reasonable value of time Taitz wasted in court for the past three years.” Or maybe if he does, the amount of compensation will be figured at a nominal amount of maybe $1.00 per year.  To be offset against any fees awarded the defense. Finally you have these sarcastic little barbs from Lamberth’s August 30, 2011 Order:

Ever persistent, plaintiff has once again come before this Court in an effort to uncover “the biggest cover up in the history of this nation.” Pl.’s Opp’n to Mot. for Summ. J. 20 [31].

As her numerous filings with the Court demonstrate, plaintiff will stop at nothing to get to the bottom of this alleged conspiracy. Unfortunately for plaintiff, today is not her lucky day.

But plaintiff’s unsubstantiated allegations, without more, do not persuade the Court that the requested information “would likely disclose” official misconduct, id., and thus do not affect the calculus here.

And plaintiff—for all her allegations—has produced no “evidence that would warrant a belief by a reasonable person that the alleged government impropriety might have occurred.” Nat’l Archives and Records Admin. v. Favish, 541 U.S. 157, 174 (2004). Her vehement allegations of fraud consist of mere “bare suspicion[s]” and thus fail to satisfy the public interest standard required under FOIA. Id.
4

As with the registration acknowledgement form discussed above, the Court can only conclude that plaintiff has submitted a page that some individual obtained under false pretenses—that is, by representing himself as the President’s employer. The Court notes that both documents submitted by plaintiff are incomplete; the address on the registration acknowledgment form and the employer identification number on the SSNVS page have been blacked out, further confirming the documents’ fraudulent origins. For all of these reasons, the Court will disregard both documents as well as any arguments made in reliance on them.

The upshot is, that even if the SSA and the opposing attorneys had actually withheld some vital information from Taitz, her own hands are so filthy dirty that she will get no relief. However, I do not suspect there is any intentional wrongdoing about the rule on the part of the defendants. To wit, at a minimum:

1. Taitz did not include the mysterious Harrison Bounel as a party;

2. She has presented no substantive facts or evidence about Harrison Bounel, including his age;

3. Obama is NOT 120 years of age;

4. Harrison Bounel is not the President, and there is no pressing need to invade his privacy.

So, no. Judge Lambert is not going to be her chum. But, she may end up being his. Chop. Chop.

Note 1. The Image. This is the beautiful and exotic Maila Nurmi, better known as Vampira. As Wiki says:

Maila Nurmi (December 11, 1922 – January 10, 2008) was a Finnish-American actress who created the campy 1950s character Vampira. She portrayed Vampira as TV’s first horror host and in the Ed Wood cult film Plan 9 from Outer Space. She is also billed as Vampira in the 1959 movie The Beat Generation where she plays a beatnik poet.

Born as Maila Elizabeth Syrjäniemi, she claimed to be the niece of the Finnish athlete Paavo Nurmi, who began setting long-distance running world records in 1921, the year before her birth. She moved to the United States with her family when she was two years old and grew up in Ashtabula, Ohio, home to the largest Finnish-American community in the state. She and her family lived in Ashtabula until 1939, when they moved to Oregon.

She graduated from high school in Astoria, Oregon,  before arriving in Los Angeles. She modeled for Alberto Vargas, Bernard of Hollywood and Man Ray, gaining a foothold in the film industry with an uncredited role in Victor Saville’s 1947 film, If Winter Comes.

She reportedly was fired by Mae West[citation needed] from the cast of West’s Broadway play Catherine Was Great in 1944 because West feared that she was being upstaged. On Broadway, she gained much attention after appearing in the horror-themed midnight show Spook Scandals, in which she screamed, fainted, lay in a coffin and seductively lurked about a mock cemetery. She also worked as a showgirl for the Earl Carroll Theatre and as a high-kicking chorus line dancer at the Florentine Gardens along with stripper Lili St. Cyr. In the 1950s she supported herself mainly by posing for pin-up photos in men’s magazines such as Famous Models, Gala and Glamorous Models. Before landing her role as ‘Vampira’, she was working as a hat-check girl in a cloakroom on Hollywood’s Sunset Strip.

Of course, she went on to create the Vampira role, and starred in Ed Wood’s Plan Nione From Outer Space. Here is the link to the article:

               Respondent                                       ) 

NOTICE OF DEFAULT/FAILURE TO ANSWER TO MOTION FOR RECONSIDERATION

REQUEST FOR THE COURT TO CONSIDER LACK OF AN OPPOSITION AS A CONSENT BY THE DEFENSE TO GRANT THE MOTION FOR RECONSIDERATION BY THE PLAINTIFF.

ARGUMENT

1.  On 06.13.2013 Defendant and his attorneys were served with the motion for reconsideration at hand. They were served both by mail and through the ECF.

2.    Defense did not oppose the motion.

3.     Plaintiff, Orly Taitz, ESQ requests this court to grant her motion for reconsideration and order SSA, Social Security Administration, to furnish to the plaintiff SS-5, Social Security application for SSN xxx-xx-4425, for Harrison (Harry) J. Bounel, born in 1890 under the 5USC 552 Freedom of Information Act FOIA and 120 year rule of the Social Security Administration, whereby the Social Security Administration is required to produce under 5USC552 and “120 year rule” Social Security Applications SS-5 of “extremely aged individuals” of 120 year old or older without their consent or without proof of death. As Bounel was born in 1890, he would be 123 years old if he would be alive today and his SS-5 has to be released as an SS-5 of an “extremely aged individual”.

REQUEST FOR SANCTIONS AGAINST THE DEFENDANT AND HIS ATTORNEYS.

1.     Not only the SS-5 of Bounel should be released, there has to be an award of sanctions against the defendant and his attorneys.

2.     Plaintiffs brought this case in 2010.

3.     Unbeknown to Taitz the SSA already had “120 year”, it implemented it, however the public was not made aware of the rule until 2011. Under 120 year rule, the SS-5 of “Extremely aged individuals” of 120 or older had to  be released without consent of the individual or proof of death.

4.    While Taitz did not have this information until recently, the defendant had at all times information showing that Harrison J Bounel, born in 1890 was the holder of SSN xxx-xx-4425 and that the defendant was obligated to release this  SSN under 5USC552 and “120 year rule”.

5.     Defendant and his attorney, “Department of Justice” engaged in egregious behavior and showed malice by refusing to provide the SS-5 in question and claiming privacy, even though they knew at all times that privacy did not apply. They defrauded Judge Lamberth and the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit claiming defense of privacy even though they knew that privacy did not apply.

6.    Plaintiff, who is an attorney from the state of California, filed this case, as she was seeking to uphold constitutional freedoms, as a president for a not for profit Defend Our Freedoms foundation. She spent three years working on this case. She was also subjected to harassment and defamation as defense claimed that her actions were frivolous.

7.     Not only interests of Justice would justify granting her motion for reconsideration under the Rule 60B(2),(6), but interests of Justice would justify sanctions against the defense for the reasonable value of time Taitz wasted in court for the past three years and abuse and defamation she was subjected to due to frivolous actions by the defense.

CONCLUSION

1.     60(B)(2)(6) motion for reconsideration should be granted.

2.     Plaintiff should be compensated for the reasonable value of time she spent litigating this case for the past three years and for the abuse and defamation she underwent due to actions of the defense.

3.    Any and all other relief this court considers reasonable and just.

Orly Taitz Gets Carried Away, Again! Sues Post Office!!!

MonsterOnTheCampus photo

It Became Pretty Obvious That Lots Of Wild Hairs Had Got Stuck Up Her . . . uh . . . Nightgown

Well, Orly Taitz is at it again!  According to her website, she is suing the Post Office again. Here is the link:

http://www.orlytaitzesq.com/?p=426937

Here are few excerpts:

Press release: New action is being filed: FOIA seeking information of any and all actions by the postmaster general in light of the complaint by Attorney Taitz about Obama’s use of a fabricated postal stamp on his bogus Selective Service registration

Law Offices of Orly Taitz

A new legal actions is being filed.

A year ago, in 2012,  Attorney Orly Taitz filed with the Postmaster General and Inspector General of the Office of the Postmaster General a complaint, which provided them information of Barack Obama using a fabricated postal stamp in his bogus Selective Service registration.

For a year Postmaster General did not take any action. Taitz filed a FOIA demanding information, demanding to know what action was taken in relation to the evidence submitted by Taitz, which showed a fabricated postal stamp in Obama’s bogus Selective Service certificate. Postmaster and Inspector General dd not respond. Taitz filed a complaint with the U.S/ District Court. what we have here is nothing short of treason: senior officials are engaged in a RICO enterprise in covering up Obama’s forged IDs.

More information to follow. Donations to cover expenses are greatly appreciated and can be given on OrlyTaitzESQ.com. . .

At the link are 40 pages of what appears to be the evidence and exhibits for the new law suit. I have downloaded them and pdf’d here, because her viewer is difficult to use and read.  Most of it seems to be Cold Case Posse papers and Affidavits which were previously submitted in her FOIA requests :

Taitz FOIA-Postmaster-General1

All I have to say is “Thanks a lot, Orly!” My check from George Soros already takes three days to get here, and then another eleven days to clear my bank, because it has to come all the way from Budapest. Now it is going to be slowed up even more while postal employees scour their offices for a 40+ year old postal stamp that is probably in a garbage dump somewhere under 30 years of old TV dinners, rusty beer cans, and moldy polyester leisure suits.

If the damn document was forged, then the forger probably got rid of it.  If it wasn’t forged, then what you have is a 40+ year old broken rubber stamp. What makes her think that 40+ year old office supplies are still sitting around somewhere, and if only the Post Office executives wanted to, they could just lay their hands right on the stuff???

Complete silliness.

Note 1. The Image. This is from the 1958 sci fi thriller, Monster on the Campus. This is where Troy Donahue got his big start in films. Wiki says:

Monster on the Campus (Monster in the Night and Stranger on the Campus) is a 1958 American science fiction/horror film, released by Universal Pictures. The film was the last of Universal’s science fiction monster films released before Island of Terror (1966). Monster on the Campus was directed by Jack Arnold and from a script by David Duncan.

Professor Donald Blake (Arthur Franz) acquires a newly-discovered coelacanth. He begins to examine the find and is exposed to its irradiated blood. This turns him into a murderous Neanderthal monster that terrorizes the campus. Troy Donahue appears as a college student, a speaking part.

I fantasize that the USPS has a spare coelacanth sitting around, and . . .

Doing The Loco Motion!!! (Or, When The Frug Gets Pulled Out!!!)

frug 1

At The Snap Of The Judge’s Fingers, The Birthers Had To Stop And Walk Back Their Claims

Orly Taitz is in for a big disappointment when the Judge Lamberth rules on her Motion for Reconsideration in Taitz v. Colvin (formerly Astrue). And, her related Motion For Default Judgement.  This whole thing started out as a Freedom of Information case seeking information about the alleged use of Obama’s social security number by a Harrison Bounel, who may have been born in 1890. She lost, and the case was closed.

Later, Taitz discovered the “120 year rule” permitting disclosures of social security numbers of extremely old people, whether dead or alive.

Sooo, Taitz filed a Motion For Reconsideration to resurrect the case because of this “new evidence.” It took several filings to actually lodge the Motion, because she incorrectly redacted Obama’s social security number. Eventually, one of her Flying Monkeys handed her a Sharpie Marker, and Taitz was able to properly color the number out. And, stay within the lines!

The Court allowed her to make her 74 page Motion. There was no answer to the motion, and now Taitz is convinced that she will prevail on a “default” basis.  That is very unlikely. She is confusing a Motion and a Complaint. If a person fails to respond in a timely fashion to a Complaint, there may indeed be a Default Judgement granted, subject to certain procedural safeguards. But MOTIONS are a horse of a different color.

Wiki defines a Motion as:

In United States law, a motion is a procedural device to bring a limited, contested issue before a court for decision. It is a request to the judge (or judges) to make a decision about the case. Motions may be made at any point in administrative, criminal or civil proceedings, although that right is regulated by court rules which vary from place to place. The party requesting the motion may be called the movant, or may simply be the moving party. The party opposing the motion is the nonmovant or nonmoving party.

I asked my BFF Fabia Sheen, Esq., an attorney, about them and she said that in a very limited, technical sense, the opposing side need never file an Opposition or Response to a Motion because the decision is firmly within the purlieu of the Court’s purview. In other words, to grant or not grant the Motion is up to the judge. Fabia said that in the practical sense, one almost always responds to a Motion, particularly those seeking Summary Judgement, where proof needs to be met with proof.  But, a court almost always has the full discretion to grant or not grant Motions.

She said that it is certainly better form, a whole lot safer, and much more professional to respond to Motions, but that there is no specific rule which mandates that run-of-the-mill unresponded-to motions are automatically granted. And, she said that Motions may  be made orally in court, and decided on the spot.

Also, there is no theoretical limit to what kind Motion may be filed, although they generally stay within well established precedents. For example, a Movant could file or make a Motion that a witness be prevented from smirking on the stand, or that another be prevented from wearing a red dress to court.  Here is an example where you could see the no automatic default rationale in action:

Plaintiff motions the Court, that since Justice is blind, the Judge should be required to wear a blindfold during the trial while the jury is in the room. The Defendant makes no response.  Does the Plaintiff prevail automatically through default, and must the judge then wear a blindfold? No. Not on your sweet life.

Here is another hypothetical, less bizarre:

Movant motions for an extension of time to respond to a Motion For Summary Judgement. The Non-Movant is silent, and makes no response.

Here, a judge may grant the extension, and probably will without disagreement from the Non-movant. Yet, the Court is not required to grant the motion. The Movant may have filed multiple motions for extensions of time prior to this, and the Court is within its rights to deny the motion whether or not the Non-movant responds. Even if there is some “local rule” which establishes that no response to a Motion For Extension constitutes assent, the  Court is free to grant or not grant the Motion. (However, some local rules require a written response in order to have oral arguments.)

You can read Taitz’s Motion here,

http://www.orlytaitzesq.com/?p=426841

Federal Rule of Civil Procedure No. 55 can be found at Note 3 below. That also makes it evident that “defaults” apply to Complaints, not Motions. To sum it all up, once again Orly Taitz makes a loco, or crazy, Motion, which causes some excitement among the Birthers, to be followed soon by yet another let down.

All in all, just another day in the Land of a Thousand Dunces.

Note 3. F.R.C.P. 55.

Rule 55. Default; Default Judgment

(a) Entering a Default. When a party against whom a judgment for affirmative relief is sought has failed to plead or otherwise defend, and that failure is shown by affidavit or otherwise, the clerk must enter the party’s default.

(b) Entering a Default Judgment.

(1) By the Clerk. If the plaintiff’s claim is for a sum certain or a sum that can be made certain by computation, the clerk—on the plaintiff’s request, with an affidavit showing the amount due—must enter judgment for that amount and costs against a defendant who has been defaulted for not appearing and who is neither a minor nor an incompetent person.

(2) By the Court. In all other cases, the party must apply to the court for a default judgment. A default judgment may be entered against a minor or incompetent person only if represented by a general guardian, conservator, or other like fiduciary who has appeared. If the party against whom a default judgment is sought has appeared personally or by a representative, that party or its representative must be served with written notice of the application at least 7 days before the hearing. The court may conduct hearings or make referrals—preserving any federal statutory right to a jury trial—when, to enter or effectuate judgment, it needs to:

(A) conduct an accounting;

(B) determine the amount of damages;

(C) establish the truth of any allegation by evidence; or

(D) investigate any other matter.

(c) Setting Aside a Default or a Default Judgment. The court may set aside an entry of default for good cause, and it may set aside a default judgment under Rule 60(b).

(d) Judgment Against the United States. A default judgment may be entered against the United States, its officers, or its agencies only if the claimant establishes a claim or right to relief by evidence that satisfies the court.
