Another Judge Dismisses Birther Case; Slams Orly Taitz Hard

David Weigel has the story:

Central District of California Judge David O. Carter has dismissed Barnett et al v. Obama et al, Orly Taitz’s most successful lawsuit — that is, the one that got the furthest through the legal system — demanding proof of the president’s citizenship.The entire decision is here, and it’s devastating to Taitz. Here’s an excerpt of the disposition, with emphasis in the original:

Interpreting the Constitution is a serious and crucial task with which the federal courts of this nation have been entrusted under Article III. However, that very same Constitution puts limits on the reach of the federal courts. One of those limits is that the Constitution defines processes through which the President can be removed from office. The Constitution does not include a role for the Court in that process. Plaintiffs have encouraged the Court to ignore these mandates of the Constitution; to disregard the limits on its power put in place by the Constitution; and to effectively overthrow a sitting president who was popularly elected by We the People‚ sixty-nine million of the people. 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. 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. Therefore, for the reasons stated above, Defendants’ Motion to Dismiss is GRANTED.

Judge Carter was not through with Taitz, though:

[T]he ruling is limned with criticism of Taitz for the screwball, media-grabbing tactics she used to promote her doomed, frivolous lawsuit. Here, Carter confirms that he got complaints from Taitz witnesses like Larry Sinclair, claiming that Taitz wanted them to lie on the stand.

[T]he 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. While the Court seeks to ensure that all interested parties have had the opportunity to be heard, the Court cannot condone the conduct of Plaintiffs’ counsel in her efforts to influence this Court.

How crazy is Orly Taitz and her birther friends? So crazy that Bill O’Reilly thinks they’re crazy:

O’Reilly commented on Tuesday that he thinks the “birther” lawsuits are “crazy.”

The off-the-cuff comment didn’t go by unnoticed by Taitz’s followers, and now they are planning a protest outside Fox news headquarters in New York on Veterans’ Day.

On her Web site, Taitz wrote, “Keep in mind, what OReilly did, is more dangerous, more harmful then what some idiots like Rachel Maddow or Keith [Olbermann] did, since people believe O’Reilly to be fair and balanced.”

Taitz told the news blog Conservative Monster that O’Reilly is “not a legitimate journalist” because he had not contacted her about the story he planned to air. Taitz “stated that if Fox gave her a 30-minute show for her to display her evidence, Obama would have to resign from office within 48 hours,” the Web site reported.

    Just as in the O.J. Simpson case, our legal system has been used to avoid a ‘perceived’ violent and damaging reaction by the general population to justice being served – and so, one more cowardly judge resorts to tortured logic and avoids doing the right thing.

    This lawsuit was never about military personnel avoiding deployment to a war zone! It has always been about Obama’s ineligibility to serve as President of the United States and to issue orders as Commander-in-Chief, potentially placing hundreds and thousands of lives in harms way.

    In dragging his feet about additional troops to Afghanistan, as requested by the very same General he put in charge, Obama has proven that he is more interested in giving the Muslim world a hand than winning a war for the very American citizens that elected him.

    Judge David O. Carter has just missed his place in history as a patriot, and instead joined the ranks of cowardly and immoral traitors to the United States Constitution.

    Judge Carter’s lack of knowledge beyond his military and legal experience has proven to be his Achilles’ heel. He most obviously does not understand what the real dangers to our nation are. Namely, that Obama and his handlers are only interested in dismantling the Constitution and destroying the Dollar, in order to surrender American sovereignty and make way for the North American Union and a New World Order.

    Obama and his ilk probably believe that in this New World Order, with the backing of International Law and hate crime legislation, supported by multiple nuclear-armed Islamic groups and countries; that somehow, we are all going to reach ‘détente’ and live happily ever after.

    Maybe Judge Carter does not understand that Islam will not stop until it conquers the entire world and converts it to follow its ways, or die trying.

    Judge Carter definitely does not understand that there is enough evidence this very day that Obama is not only a fraud, but that all of his actions thus far betray a childish ideology and a most distinct loyalty to the Muslim world. To say that this is evidence of a ‘divided loyalty’ would be to give him too much credit for attempting to achieve a balance. This just simply is not the case.

    The truth will eventually come out. However, it may be too late to save our Republic.

    God help the next Judge Carter that is tested during this critical time in American history. All we need is one righteous man to stand up for the truth. God save America.

    Are you fucking kidding me? I’m living in Cairo right now, and the last thing I’m worried about are militant Islamists hell bent on world destruction who are going to chop my head off or something. These whackos like the Muslim Brotherhood can’t even get a grip on Muslim-majority societies, nevermind the world’s most westernized nation that lies across on ocean. There’s so much English around here that you can practically get by here without speaking any Arabic — that doesn’t sound too Islamic, does it? Here’s something else that doesn’t sound too Islamic: I hopped into an Egyptian friend’s car last night to goto a house party, and the first thing he handed me was a beer. Then he cracked open a beer and started driving. So either Obama and the Islamists are working together to take over America and enable us to chug beers while driving to house parties (to chug even more beers), or Islamists lack so much power that they can’t conquer western tendencies in the centers of the Islamic world. Either way, you don’t know what the fuck you’re talking about.

    Well written drivel, and that is the scary part; it is easy to overlook this sort of lunacy when the barely literate Joe the Plumbers of the Right are ranting it…last summer an essay I read (unfortunately I can’t remember the author) warned that the true threat to our Republic comes from the Radical Right, and I concur…it is easy to dismiss Glenn Beck as a “clown,” and think that rational Americans do reject his out-there bloviations, BUT we in the reality based community need to acknowledge that he is a clown that the hard Right listens to, and as this post suggests with a bit of panache, believes…and these people tend to be heavily armed (certainly something to keep in mind.)

    JUDGE CARTER IN A NUTSHELL: Expanded Orly Taitz default judgment case against CANDIDATE Obama for fraud into a Presidential Removal case against PRESIDENT Obama (promising a trial), but then ruled the Court lacks said Presidential Removal authority, not only dismissing the Judge-expanded Presidential Removal case (reneging on the trial), but throwing out Orly’s Candidate fraud case as well — all this on a red herring that Orly’s case was filed 1/20/09 after Obama was sworn in on 1/20/09 despite Obama was sworn in on 1/21/09 and despite the Orly-alleged fraud was committed by Candidate Obama prior to becoming President and for which there is no Presidential immunity in any case. Thus Judge Carter set up and knocked down his own straw man, and misstated fact and law to bury Orly’s actual case. Pretty nifty!!!

  6. tas says:

    Well Jack, I guess the judge didn’t have time to go through the fact that Orly is a nutjob with no evidence to back her claims. Jesus, even Bill Fucking O’Reilly says Orly is “crazy”. Obama was born a US citizen and the majority of this country’s voting electorate roundly picked him to be the president of the country. If you don’t like that fact then I suggest you suck my dick. Douchebag.

  7. tas says:

    As everyone can tell by now, my patience has waned on this birther bullshit. If somebody can’t accept basic empirical evidence like a legitimate election, then they really need to have their fucking heads examined or something. Seriously. Stop the retarded fucking bullshit.

  8. tas travels to Egypt thus now he knows everything about militant Islam ‘I lived in Egypt’!!… but tas indirectly makes a few good points and observations. Most people in Egypt and elsewhere drink beer, wear western style clothes and drive cars. Under Sharia Law tas’s friend there woulda had his hands cut off. Militant Islam is still all around the Middle East and many ‘moderates’ sympathize with their cause. Question?? Can I enforce Sharia Law on Muslims I see drinking, not praying, and hitting strip bars around here?? Maybe Sharia Law for Muslims would be good.

    I suspect that Obamba wasn’t born in America. But since his mom was a US Citizen that kinda makes the whole point moot. Besides McCain was born in Panama, yet nobody questions his credentials to be POTUS. … but I just wish the Administration would be a bit more up front here. There are some inconsistencies to the whole story and the Governor of Hawaii has sealed Obamba’s birth records, if any exist. So what’s with all the secrecy?? Just release the records from Hawaii along with all the other Obamba records kept sealed around the Country … at Harvard, Chicago, Hawaii .. all the schools he went to … really, we know very little about this guy …

  9. tas: if Obamba was born in America … produce the evidence !! .. Where is it?? …. don’t have it sealed and draw more suspicion or conspiracy theories.

    I wonder where CFLF was at in 2004 when CBS produced the forged documents of Bush’s National Guard Service …

    Of course, you miss the point. While you’re spouting crackpot conspiracy theories about Obama being born outside of the US (I guess a certificate of live birth and assurances from Hawaii’s GOP governor that Obama was born in the state aren’t considered empirical evidence in your world, eh?) and claiming that he’s a Muslim extremist who’s going to place America under some Islamist law, I’m living here in center of the Islamic world telling you what’s actually going on. I know this isn’t possible for you, but think logically for a second — if the Islamists who want to institute shari’a law can’t do it in a place like Cairo, the home of Az-Azhar University and where the population is 90% Muslim, what makes you think they can do it in the USA or Europe? If they can’t be successful here, what makes you think they could find success half a world away in a country with the strongest western tendencies?
