Orly Taitz gets her court date

November 11th, 2009, 2:17pm by Sam Wang

Back on the false-belief beat…sort of. I’ve previously written about false belief formation from the standpoint of neuroscience. A prominent category these days is the delusion, mostly on the right, that President Obama is thought to be hiding something really big. These days it’s his citizenship: “birthers” claim that he is not a Hawaii-born US citizen eligible for the presidency (never mind the 1961 newspaper announcements and this thorough debunking).

Lead Birther Orly Taitz, a self-taught lawyer, dentist, and real estate agent, has been filing federal lawsuits to remove President Obama from office. She finally has a court date…for driving at amazingly reckless speeds. (see also the Orange County courts, traffic case 14852LC)

    You have to admit- the woman is multi-talented.

    What do you suppose it would be like to have her as a dentist or real estate agent? How much documentation would one have to bring to the closing on a house sale?

    Poor little crazy Birthers, Judge Land and now judge Carter, smack down the crazies (case dismissed),

    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).

    Taitz’s lawsuits have been getting dismissed time after time. The courts have, naturally, looked to the provisions of the Constitution that give the House of Representatives the sole review of the eligibility of a presidential election victor to take up the position of president.
