More on the birther loons...

Apparently the recent fine of $20,000 for abusing the legal system with frivolous lawsuits has not deterred Orly Taitz, one of the leaders of the so called "birther" movement (previously addressed in this post), from attempts to advance the lunatic fringe's agenda through the courts.

Judge David O. Carter in dismissing Taitz's latest attempts at judicial knavery writes in part...
"Plaintiffs have attacked the judiciary, including every prior court that has dismissed their claim, as unpatriotic and even treasonous for refusing to grant their requests and for adhering to the terms of the Constitution which set forth its jurisdiction," he writes.

"Respecting the constitutional role and jurisdiction of this Court is not unpatriotic,"... "Quite the contrary, this Court considers commitment to that constitutional role to be the ultimate reflection of patriotism."

..."The Court has received several sworn affidavits that Taitz asked potential witnesses that she planned to call before this Court to perjure themselves,"... "This Court is deeply concerned that Taitz may have suborned perjury through witnesses she intended to bring before this Court."

..."Plaintiffs appear to assume that should the Court receive a document from Kenya, the Court would give credence to this document over the American birth records of the President and the case would be resolved."

Judge land and now judge Carter, smack down the crazies (case dismissed), poor little Birthers.

Not even “Fake News” Bill O’Reilly believes the crazies, how funny.

To all the birthers in La, La Land, it is on you to prove to all of us that your assertion is true (TOUGH WHEN YOU KEEP LOSING CASES), if there are people who were there and support your position then show us the video (everyone has a price), either put up or frankly shut-up. I heard Orly Taitz, is selling a tape (I think it’s called “Money, Lies and Video tape”). She is from Orange County, CA, now I know what the mean when they say “behind the Orange Curtain”, when they talk about Orange County, the captial of Conspiracy Theories. You know Obama has a passport, he travel abroad before he was a Senator, but I guess they were in on it.

In my opinion the Republican Party has been taken over the most extreme religious right (people who love to push their beliefs on others while trying to take away the rights of those they just hate) and that’s who they need to extract from their party if they real want to win. Good Luck, because as they said in WACO, “We Ain’t Coming Out”.

I heard that she now wants to investigate the “Republican 2009 Summer of Love” list: Assemblyman, Michael D. Duvall (CA), Senator John Ensign (NV), Senator Paul Stanley (TN), Governor Mark Stanford (SC), Board of Ed Chair, and Kristin Maguire AKA Bridget Keeney (SC).

Paul, next time lay off the caffeine.

I'm with you on this birther stuff, because the Clintons would've picked up on it. On the other hand, why doesn't the teleprompter-in-chief just release his records and be done with it?

"In my opinion the Republican Party has been taken over the most extreme religious right (people who love to push their beliefs on others while trying to take away the rights of those they just hate) and that’s who they need to extract from their party if they real want to win."

Are you serious or have you been hitting things other than you head? There isn't a dime's worth of difference between the two parties: they both support big wasteful government, they both give themselves raises, they both intrude on civil liberties, and they both cave in to idiotic PC and the fraud known as "global warming" now being called "climate change." Taking away rights is what liberals do while forcing perversion on society while screaming "racist, sexist, homophobe" to the point that they sound like car alarms. Tyranny almost always comes from the left for the left like the spoiled miserable brats that they are want to play what they want and demand everyone else does too. Conservatives like me believe in leaving people the heck alone, and Ron Paul is among the few conservatives in the Federal government right now. It's liberals who are telling people not to smoke, not to eat trans-fats, not to drive SUV's, not to call sin what it is, not to drink beer, not to deprive perverts access to their kids and not to hold Orthodox Christian beliefs because they "discriminate" between right and wrong which really ticks off the perverted fringe of the left. i know because I'm surrounded by liberals in my line of work and I hear bigoted, ignorant and intolerant comments from the same people who scream "TOLERANCE AND DIVERSITY!" every day.

Oh, and it's the extreme religious left like Jeremiah Wright that does all those things you describe.

Anybody who goes by the name "Barack Hussein Obama" is American in only a purely legal sense. The technical details of Barack Hussein's birth are irrelevant.

OK that last comment is pushing the envelope. The last time I checked there is no stipulation dictating what is an American name anywhere. Lets try real hard and keep this discussion planted in the first decade of the 21st century as opposed to the middle of the 19th.

Know Nothing Nativism is not welcome here.


John (Ad Orientem) said...

For the record I have great great (several times) uncle who was taunted for his name "Conall" which was not "American." He gave an arm for this country at Chancellorsville.

Reactionary said...

It's admittedly hyperbolic. The point stands that Hussein was raised in none of the American traditions under which your family member fought. He is a member of a globalist, cosmopolitan elite with little interest in the country other than as a tax farm to fund his social engineering schemes.

Hawaii isn't part of the "American traditions"?

Ryan said...

For some people, the word "American" is virtually synonymous with "white".

The USA is my country. It's not my religion. I don't support Obama's ideology or policies, but I don't see what's wrong with being "cosmopolitan" either. You have to be a little cosmopolitan to be in a Church where all the big names are Russians, Greeks, Arabs, Romanians, etc.

The "birther" thing is getting really funny- I've started seeing right-wingers claiming that the whole birther controversy was actually planned and coordinated by the Obama administration to make the right look stupid.

For most of its history, the US has been 90% Anglo-Saxon and Scots-Irish. Do you think that demographic fact had nothing to do with the formation of the American character and ethos? Hence, I think there is some significance associated with the Kenyan name of a US president. In other words, there just might be more to being 'American' than being delivered in a maternity ward with a US ZIP code. And I'm not sure a man whose father was a Kenyan Marxist and whose mother actively despised her Anglo-American kin can grasp that. Certainly the Lebanese, for example, would say there's more to being Lebanese than being born in a Beirut hospital, and the same would be said by Russians, Greeks and Romanians. The substitution of ideology for nationality and culture is a purely modern experiment.

This underscores, by the way, the gap not just between Barack Obama and, say, John McCain, but also between Barack Obama and 99% of all black Americans.

John (Ad Orientem) said...

OK. That's enough! I think we are straying back towards the 1850's and Know Nothing Nativism again. I don't know how to make this more clear. The recent comments espousing some sort of ethno-centrist racialism (lets call this what it is) are repugnant and are not welcome here.

My ancestors (Irish-Catholics) suffered great discrimination for their heritage at the hands of White Anglo-Saxon Protestants. The only people in N. America who are entitled to make claims about who is and who is not an "American" based on race or ethnicity are those descended from the people the Anglo-Saxons murdered and stole the continent from.

I will brook no more comments of this nature on this blog.
