Orly Taitz will be in court on Tuesday morning with her latest refusal-to-serve-under-Obama lawsuit. The link below is the defendant's motion to dismiss the case:

http://www.politico.com/static/PPM12...ismissbrf.html

Main points -

- Plaintiffs are seeking nothing less than a trial concerning the fitness, competence, and qualifications of President Barack Obama to hold office.

- the 44 plaintiffs lack standing (incl. ex long-shot Presidential candidates)

- the court lacks jurisdiction as, according to the Constitution, it is Congress that has the authority and mechanisms to rule on a sitting President's qualifications for office (next step - Republican Senators and Congressmen will have initiate this)

- case presents Non-Justiciable Political Questions

- Plaintiffs also seek to litigate in this Court a variety of
vaguely-defined claims purportedly related to a hodgepodge of
constitutional provisions, civil and criminal statutes, and the
Freedom of Information Act. These claims are equally flawed, either
because Plaintiffs have failed to meet the jurisdictional and
statutory prerequisites or again seek to have this Court adjudicate
issues that are textually committed to other branches.
This Court, therefore, is without jurisdiction to determine
any issues related to the President’s fitness to hold office, and
this case should be dismissed with prejudice and judgment entered
accordingly.

She will not go away until the crazies cheering her on have receded back into the woodwork. Characters such a Taitz are like a fungus.

That step came and went when the House of Representative voted to accept the results of the electoral college.

I don't believe that the Congress moment has come and gone. They can still revisit if they can get enough votes to do so.

I expect Taitz to lose on Tuesday - based on the arguments presented in the defendant's motion to dismiss. I also expect Taitz to be loud, out of order, and as incompetent and hilarious before a judge as she is in written motions. I hope FOX covers it.

Hearing: Motion for Discovery of records showing relevance to eligibility
Location: Federal Court building in Santa Ana, CA
Time/Date: 8:00 AM Pacific Tuesday, September 8th 2009

More entertainment will ensue as a couple of her 44 plaintiffs no longer want her representing them (they think she's batty and incompetent) - but she refused to take their names off the documents.

If this was a TV series, I'd admire the writers' creativity.

Looks like it's gonna be another smackdown for Orly!

Quote:
Maj. Rebecca Ausprung, with the Department of the Army, Litigation Division in Washington, told Land this case was about Rhodes, not Obama.

“There was a lack of any reference to Capt. Rhodes,” Ausprung said. “This case is about Capt. Rhodes and her deployment.”

Taitz kept going back to Obama’s birth certificate. Twice she called Obama a “usurper.”

Land repeatedly pointed out it was a courtroom where the rule of law was all that mattered.

“Whenever I give you a minute, you go off on these talking points,” Land said.

“We have not seen Mr. Obama’s birth certificate,” Taitz responded.

“This is not a forum to lay ground work for a press conference,” Land said. “This is a court of law.”

As long as idiots keep sending her money so that they can keep their racist dreams alive she will keep pulling this junk. I think it is way past time for someone to do an indepth investigation into this scam artist.

Some people may not be able to read the article I posted above, appears after going to the website more than once they require you to register.

I find this exchange interesting:

Quote:
Under questioning from Land, Rhodes said she had not declined any other orders since Obama became president.
“If Sen. McCain would have won, would you be objecting to deployment to Iraq?” the judge asked. Rhodes said no.
Land then asked the question another way: If President George W. Bush still was the commander in chief, would she be fighting the deployment?
“No, sir,” Rhodes answered.
