Orly Taitz Presses Obama Birther Argument in Pasadena Court

Mission Viejo dentist and lawyer Orly Taitz and another Southern California lawyer seek the court's permission to press a lawsuit about President Barack Obama's birth certificate.

Two attorneys who remain unconvinced that President Barack Obama was born in the United States took their case to a Pasadena courtroom today, asking an appellate court panel to reinstate their lawsuit challenging his citizenship and asking for closer examination of his birth certificate.

U.S. District Judge David O. Carter in Santa Ana dismissed their case in 2009, ruling that the court was not the proper place to challenge a president's election—echoing a ruling by a federal judge in Georgia.

But attorneys Gary Kreep and Orly Taitz continued to press their case today—even though Obama released his Hawaiian birth certificate last week.

"The only recourse for the people is the courts," Kreep, who is based in Ramona, told the panel. "Nobody has been willing to take on Mr. Obama."

Taitz, of Rancho Santa Margarita, added, "Mr. Obama, the evidence shows, committed a fraud."

Assistant U.S. Attorney David DeJute insisted that the courts were not the proper venue to challenge the president, saying only Congress can do so through the impeachment process.

The panel heard about an hour of arguments, then took the matter under submission.

Kreep and Taitz have lost several legal efforts to disqualify the president from holding that office, and have faced sanctions for abusing the federal court system. Taitz was fined $20,000 by a judge in Georgia.

Taitz said today she was surprised by the treatment she has received from the courts and federal prosecutors.

"I come from the Soviet Union,'' she said. "I would expect that in the Soviet Union. I would not expect it here."

Although the original lawsuit sought release of the birth certificate, the pair now want a forensic expert to examine the birth certificate released by Obama last week.

Taitz has three separate court actions pending to challenge Obama's qualifications to serve as president. She told City News Service last week that she questions the birth certificate's authenticity because it lists the president's father's race as African, instead of negro.

Kreep and Taitz also challenge the president's citizenship because they believe he was adopted by a foster father while living in Indonesia as a child, according to the United States Justice Foundation. Kreep is the foundation's executive director.

Obama said last week he hoped that releasing the long-form birth certificate would help end the so-called "birther" movement.

"I know there's going to be a segment of people for which, no matter what we put out, this issue will not be put to rest," he said. "But I'm speaking to the vast majority of the American people, as well as the press--we do not have time for this kind of silliness. We've got better stuff to do. We've got big problems to solve. And I'm confident we can solve them, but we're going to have to focus on them, not on this."

The president also gently poked the birther movement at Saturday's White House Correspondent's Dinner.

The president said Donald Trump and other birthers were happy that the long-form birth certificate had been released, because it allowed them to investigate other questions like "Did we fake the moon landing? What really happened in Roswell? And where are (missing rappers) Biggie and Tupac?"

Someone calling himself 'Larry Haynes' has been caught telling a typical birther lie. According to Larry, "No one would spend $Millions in courts across America to keep the American people from knowing he is eligible to be the President." This is a now-traditional birther lie. The figure varies according to the liar: it has been given as $1 million, $2 million, $6 million, and even $10 million. Every one of these figures is a lie. A question to 'Mr Haynes': can you prove it? Do you have any evidence? Facts? Documentation? Anything beyond the circumference of your own delusion? Who are the 'numerous lawyers' hired by Mr Obama to conceal the birth certificate he has already released? Give us their actual names, law offices, addresses, state bar license numbers, billings and invoices, proof of payments, line items and budgets, and documentation that they actually worked for Mr Obama. Then, provide documented evidence that Mr Obama made these payments, as you have claimed. Cheque stubs. Tax statements. Credit card billings. Anything. Prove it. If you cannot answer these simple questions, you will have only proved -- yet again -- that birthers are deranged liars, willing and able to tell the most ridiculous stories about the President. "$millions" you say. PROVE IT. Don't just say it. PROVE IT. You have now had SIX DAYS to do so, and have failed. If you can't, we can only presume you are an habitual liar, caught again.

It makes one wonder just which side Taitz is working for, once one learns the truth behind this red herring: It's not where he was born that is the true issue the Socialist Democrats are frantic to hide, it's who his real father (and mother) are. And WHAT they are. And just why the Social Dem's from HI to DC deliberately let Obama in as Prez. And that is why Obama has been misdirecting the search with even obviously forged COLB's. His real father is WHITE, and his mother an Indonesian black, and this alone will destroy their image of "The Perfect Prez." His father was former East German "Master Spy" Stasi General Markus Wolf, who specialized in the breeding, raising, grooming and running of his "Manchurian Candidates." I know, for I was also one. Until ushered into the US Army M.I. and sent to Germany to lure him to the West in 1977. He's been working for the US since then, not 1992. And revealed the overall Commie plan of a takeover from within that has culminated in that "Sugar-coated poison pill" called the "Health Care Plan." That no one has read, but all have signed? Thusly keeping their own powers, positions, riches and the like in the new American Communist Government, while Comunizing the rest of us in a new Police State. Markus Wolf was a pretty unknown name when HI Soc Dem's came up with the COLB, which allows such kinds of name changes. Wolf simply found a couple that took money in order to help manage Obama's childhood Legend. A Coup D'Etad
