Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – Orly sex edition

Good morning, everyone!

Well, like a loose tooth that you can’t keep your tongue off of, I can’t help ogling the trainwreck that is Orly Taitz.

Arianna Huffington’s evil twin has been taking her share of lumps lately, and Free Republic, which once had a multitude of threads on her every day (and hotlinks to them at the top of each page), has mostly had enough.

Belatedly, it’s dawning on them that not only have they been had, but been made to look ridiculous in the bargain. Me? I’m loving it!

Here’s where it all started to go wrong:

p>Judge tosses out Army captain’s complaint questioning president’s birth; Orly Taitz on notice ^

Posted onWednesday, September 16, 2009 11:48:30 AM byvikk

U.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.'”

who filed her complaint Sept. 4 in the Columbus Division of U.S.
District Court, argued that some facts point to Obama not being
naturalized or possibly an illegal immigrant.

“This plaintiff
cannot in good conscience obey orders originating from a chain of
command from this merely de facto president,” Rhodes’ complaint states.
“This plaintiff cannot be lawfully compelled to obey this de facto
president’s orders.”

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.

“Lemme guess. This judge was a Democrat appointee?”

He was a Bush appointee in 2001. Before that, he was an elected
Republican Georgia State Senator. From his Senate website archive, his
bio included this…

“Land has sponsored a
wide variety of legislation which has been enacted into law, including
the 1996 law authorizing hefty fines against the City of Atlanta for
its pollution of the Chattahoochee River, landmark education reform
legislation expanding Georgia’s charter school law, amendment of the
expert affidavit statute, and privacy protection legislation
restricting access to motor vehicle accident reports by ambulance
chasing lawyers. “

Hon. Clay Land (GA SS 16)

I wouldn’t characterize a tort reform proponent and charter school advocate as a liberal.

I’m afraid this is not a surprise. This judge
was known to be a biased liberal. Evidentlyhe only took the case so he
could put Orly Taitz on notice.

I still give Orly credit. Even though this case predictably failed, it kept the issue alive.

Land also put attorney Orly Taitz, … on
notice by stating that she could face sanctions if she ever files a
similar “frivolous” lawsuit in his court.

Yet just this week,
Orly Taitz stated that she would have Obama out of office within 30
days. Her grandiose comments, and attempts at litigation, are the legal
equivalent ofStar Trek techno-babble. She is promising to
crawl through the Jeffries Tube, and neutralize Obama with a stream of
reverse tachyon particles.

That is why so many Freepers are keep
posting that she is either a moron, or a double agent. They know that
she could not win the case, even if she really did have a case. Every
second and dollar spent supporting her is a second or dollar spent in
the service of Obama.

That’s kinda how I feel about the “Teabagger Express”. Every dollar spent on such vanity projects is a dollar less in the GOP’s coffers. Carry on.

Well, Rush is obviously an Obama stooge. That, or someone threatened the family he doesn’t have.

To: Churchillspirit

I have very little hope that this will pan out
to be anything… whether he was born in Kenya, or not. The wheels of
justice have a big wrench in them put there by the rats and others who
don’t want a constitutional crisis or Obama embarrassed by whatever is
on the long form.

Wonder if we’ll ever find out the truth.I hate the arrogance of Obama and his gangdoing this to us.

It seems that Orly hasn’t taken this lying down.

She’saccusing the judge of treason.

I’m not sure how that tactic is supposed to serve anyone but her.

It’s TPM, so take with a grain of salt, but it’s not like it’d be unbelievable for her to have said this.

THAT will get her disbarred, and possibly even
jail time for contempt of court. As an Officer of the Court (which is
what a lawyer is) there are certain things you are simply not allowed
to say or do, it’s a right you give up when accepting the oath as an
attorney, and disparging the court in this fashion violates that oath
and the Rules of Professional Conduct

To: IntolerantOfTreason

You don;t get discovery unless you can prove
you have a sustainable case that has a chance of winning (Federal Rule
56.1) It’s shocking to see so many of my fellow conservatives who are
usually more aware of the need for Tort reform and an end to Lawsuit
abuse being so very in favor of it in this case.

The Burden of Proof is always with the Plaintiff and right now Orly
has exactly ZERO that will stand up in Court. Imagine if the law really
worked the way you think it should in this case

you could be accused of anything by any random person without a
scrap of evidence, and then be forced to open up and turn over all your
most private records (nearly ANYTHING is discoverable-even things that
would never in a million years be admissible as evidence)

That is not a world that I for one want to inhabit.

Orly Transcript from July 13 hearing

Posted onTuesday, October 06, 2009 11:59:10 AM byElderberry

Transcript from July 13 hearing, please read extremely important. Posted on | October 6, 2009 | No Comments

am publishing this transcript of the July 13 hearing so that the public
can see the truth. What I’ve noticed it that Obama supporters are
publishing some COMPLETE GARBAGE calling it unofficial transcripts. In
reality they are distorting each and every word I am saying and trying
to show me in a negative light. Somebody by name “Waveydavey” has
written such garbage and distortions and Phil from “Right side of Life”
posted it. When the transcript of the October 5 hearing is ready, I
will post it. In reality I carried most of the hearing on my shoulders.
Kreep showed up an hour late and was not prepared. He did not have any
precedents, he did not provide a substantial argument. I have provided
numerous points and precedents in the argument and counted any and all
ridiculous assertions by the US attorneys claiming that no one citizen
of this country has standing to bring challenge to this massive fraud
and treason perpetrated upon the citizens of this nation by the usurper
and his accomplishes (as you understand US attorneys didn’t use this
very language and definitions). the public was applauding me
repeatedly. Kreep also lied to the judge, where he stated that I have
written on my blog that people should sue Kreep. I never written that-
the man is a pathological liar- it is appalling what he and Wiley Drake
are doing. Drake is telling the public, media and donors that I was
thrown of the legal team, so that all the donations go to Kreep.
Somebody, also, told the judge that I have written on my blog to people
to call the judge. It never happened. I tried to correct the record but
the judge would not let me speak further. What concerns me more then
anything else, is that Judge Carter sounded completely different from
what he was in prior hearings on July 13 and September 8.

“He sounded crazy – not all rational, like me.”

(snip more crazy ranting)

On September the 8th judge
Carter told the US Attorneys West and DeJutte that the chance of him
granting motion to dismiss due to lack of standing is extremely law and
he is ready to rule and have a hearing on this on Sept 11 in 3 days. At
that time Gary Kreepsqueezed himself in the case representing 2 out of
48 plaintiffs and demanded more time. The hearing was postponed by
nearly a month. During this month something happened. At October 5
hearing Judge Carter sounded as a completely different person. He did
not sound as a brave Marine any more. He sounded scared, intimidated by
somebody or something.

Maybe he’s afraid of crazy people?

He was trying to find ways to dump this case on
another court- like DC court, drag his feet by telling us to plead the
case again or dismiss on technicality- claiming no one has standing. I
poured my heart out for over an hour, and at least he didn’t come up
with a negative decision right then and there, but I am concerned. We
had a clear deal back in July. If Judge Carter makes a 180 degrees turn
now and rules for Obama and does not give me expedited discovery and
hearing on the merits as he repeatedly promised during the July 13
hearing, then I and my clients were defrauded by the court. Then there
is no system of justice for the citizens of this country.

Understatement of the year:

To: so_real

Am I naive here, or would I think to call the
judge—especially after he’s asked Orly to stop siccing callers after
him—would be counterproductive?

posted onTuesday, October 06, 2009 12:33:06 PM

Operators are standing by!

Polite, supportive, pithy …

And guaranteed, by Carter, to “go to voice mail and be deleted” per yesterday’s hearing.

No, it’s not “the right thing,” even for Orly supporters. He told her to stop encouraging the calls.

From here on in, it’s harassment, pure and simple.

kidding aside, the First Amendment guarantees We the People the right

just that on 9/12, but we were ridiculed, and dismissed.

as it began to appear as though the Judge Carter case may actually go
somewhere, it too has been ridiculed, and dismissed (at least it looks
that way now.)

“Next question: WHAT’S NEXT?”

If you
want to remove a president, impeachment. There is recourse for the
mistake of electing Obama. You wait for the next election and vote for
someone else, or you get Congress to impeach him. These are political
acts, not legal ones.

posted onTuesday, October 06, 2009 1:58:27 PM

Oh, yes – impeachment.

Because that worked out so well for y’all the last time.



To: IntolerantOfTreason
“We’ve had the soapbox, we’ve had the ballot
box, and we’re coming close to the jury box being denied us. There will
soon be no reasonable alternatives.”

Here’s your reasonable
alternative. Some day, after all these people have been explaining to
you that there never was a valid case, and every court has turned away
birther lawsuits, you should finally recognize they’ve been saying
something true that you just didn’t want to hear.

Then accept
that the American people made a mistake voting for Obama (not the first
time that’s happened), and you just need to do what you can to make
sure he doesn’t get a second term. That’s a reasonable alternative.

However, I fear many of the birthers are going to be unwilling to face
the fact that they were wrong all along. Instead, they will be
screaming about the constitution being obsolete and demanding violent
overthrow of the government. They will become the enemy of the
constitution they accuse Obama of being.

  1. “claims that the president is ‘an illegal usurper, an unlawful pretender, [and] an unqualified imposter.'”
    Um, I think she meant to say “President Bush” as the above, not President Obama. Afterall, it IS chimpy’s war.

    Oh, Jesus. I would imagine that “if it all went bad” there would be AMPLE firearms available, but this is like … fantasy football for Internet Tough Guys or something.
    Five’ll get you ten most of the people fantasizing about grenade launchers have never fired a Super Soaker.

  3. MapleStreet says:

    Although as an allergy kid, I do have to sympathize with the “ID to buy Robitussin” thing. I grew up gluping sudafed like candy.
    And there actually has been a question of putting a lot of other over-the-counter drugs behind the counter.
    (Just the article on the freeper thread starts off wrong by not considering if it wasn’t the govt making them ask for an ID but rather an overzealous corporation. Not to mention a lot of folks jumping on the thread trying to appear knowledgeable by saying “meth” instead of the fact that teenagers try to get high. Like many, many freeper items, a conflagration of fears).

  4. Athenae says:

    MapleStreet, in my local drugstore, the pregnancy tests, ovulation prediction kits (none of which work worth a shit, btw), condoms and lube are all in a locked case that you have to ask a pharmacist to open.
    When I complained, because hello, embarrassing, the manager told me such things were often stolen and re-sold on the street. So is your bottled water, I replied, but you don’t lock that up. Only the sex things. He told me to write a letter to corporate.

    Is it possible to tweak the system so these posts do not go in full to feed readers? I really enjoy this blog (and miss Holden), but when I get one of these posts on my iPhone and have to scroll I get really irritated.

    Done. You should notice a change. I never even realized I had it set for full posts. If it’s still giving you the full posts say, tomorrow, drop me an e-mail.

  7. MarcD says:

    I have been reading all the Freep birther threads for a few weeks now. They are this fascinating combination of loonery, denial, and outright hypocrasy. I can’t take my eyes away.
    And lately they have devolved into this “Lord of the Flies” dynamic. They are turning on their own, not trusting anyone’s opinion that even SLIGHTLY varies from the hard core brither line.
    But what I most enjoy is the inability to explain HOW all this happened or went down. A birther will point to a 4 year old article int he West Africa Free Rpeorter that says, “Kenya’s native son, Barack Obama…” and offer it as proof that he was Kenyan. Then someone will point to the Hawaii newspapers and birth certificate to rebut. The result will be that some unverified article int he foreign press is ok, but clearly someone was lying to the US paper (or they were in on it) and that they created a fake brith certificate.
    And I think they argue with a straight face!
    Anyway, if you search the main page with “birthcertificate” you can get all the Freep threads the birthers use (that is their super-secret-double-probation key tag).
    It is worth reading a few threads just once.
    In particular, look for comments by the following, they tend to be reasoned and logical:

  8. montag says:

    Clearly thanks are in order that you scour the bottom of this cesspit, so we don’t have to.
    When, exactly, do these people get beyond denial and into bargaining and acceptance, anyway? There’s more semi-pro scab-picking on FR than almost anywhere else.
    (I also note this complaint about not being able to buy meth precursors over the counter any longer–this site is located in Fresno, about which the BBC titled a recent special, “The City Addicted to Meth.”)
    But, this is the salient quote, I think: “We’ve had the soapbox, we’ve had the ballot box, and we’re coming close to the jury box being denied us. There will soon be no reasonable alternatives.”
    At least another commenter made hash of that one. Still, it’s a clear instance of the way in which the wacko right perceives reality, bordering on cognitive disorder. The religious loonies of which they approve don’t even figure in the last election, and they’re being denied the ballot box. They see a Dem president talking on their teebees, and they’re being denied their soapbox. A flaky, fluffy, legal crackpot has a case tossed out for lack of substance, and they’re being denied trial by jury. The victimhood (not to mention the tendency to hyperbole) is strong in Freepers, Obi-Wan.
    Thank goodness there’s just a few hundred hard-core paranoiacs there. BTW, when is R.J. Rushdoony Appreciation Day at Free Republic?

(But feel free to petition your grievances to your heart’s content–they may even listen.)
