OrlyTaitz FiredUpMissouri Judge To Birther Orly Taitz: “Evidence Is Not Stuff Printed From the Internet” A California judge has rejected a law suit filed by Orly Taitz, the self-proclaimed “queen of the birthers,” which sought to compel Occidental College to release Obama’s transcripts and other records. And based on our personal experience as a court attorney, we can authoritatively say yes, her law suit is even more crazy than your everyday, average nut-job who files weird law suits.

For instance!! Taitz sent a smack-talking email to opposing counsel leading up to their court date:

Your opposition will constitute Obstruction of Justice, Aiding and Abetting in the elections fraud in forgery and treason in allowing a foreign citizen to usurp the U.S. Presidency with an aid of forged IDs and usurp the civil rights of the U.S. citizens…At any rate your opposition and your attempt of intimidation and your allegiance or lack of allegiance to the United States of America is duly noted. Just make sure not to forget to bring with you Mr. Obama’s application, registration, and financial aid application.

Taitz approached opposing counsel on the court date to ask whether he had brought Obama’s records with him. According to court observers, counsel was “obviously amused” and responded “No.”

During oral arguments, Taitz contended that the matter of Obama’s alleged foreign birth was important enough to overrule privacy laws — an argument which Orange County Superior Court Judge Charles Margines then promptly rejected in the most hilariously understated terms possible:

You should know that evidence is not stuff printed from the Internet.

To be fair, that is not something that is ever specifically covered in law school or on the bar exam. Mostly because the legal community just expects you to know this intuitively, but still. How is a crazy person supposed to just know that anonymous internet ramblings do not have the same probative value as, say, eye witness accounts or D.N.A.?

    I don't understand how these people can't let this go. Where is their reality pill? If there had been anything untoward in 2008, don't you think that Hillary Clinton would have jumped all over it?

    Think that if all this time and energy they waste would be put to good use like volunteering in an inner city school how much would really get accomplished?

      Replace "religion" and "God" with "politics" and this quote is right on point with your comment:

      “Don’t speak to me about your religion; first show it to me in how you treat other people. Don’t tell me how much you love your God; show me in how much you love all God’s children. Don’t preach to me your passion for your faith; teach me through your compassion for your neighbors. In the end, I’m not as interested in what you have to tell or sell as I am in how you choose to live and give.”

      — Cory Booker (D)

      Mayor of Newark, New Jersey

      They cant give it up because there is some very compelling evidence which indicates that further investigation needs to occur. Laughing it off, or scoffing at people who desire to examine the facts is the more foolish here. better to just address the issue and be done with it.

        No, there isn't.

        It's been addressed. Everyone else is done with it.

        The only people left questioning it are the ultra right wingers that dislike him so much, they have long since lost any semblance of common sense.

        List your compelling evidence that proves this man is not a born citizen of the US.

        "…because there is some very compelling evidence…"

        Why not cite even just a bit of 'marginally compelling' evidence that is, you know, plausible?

    These people are too dumb to breathe. Our legal system would run so much smoother – and cost so much less, if these clowns would be warehoused somewhere in rooms with padded walls.

      I don't actually think this should happen, but since the internet is anonymous, I feel I can get away with stupid shit. As a result, I just get mad a lot and say worthless things. Please pardon anything else I say in advance. Thank you.

          Oh wow. Just checked the IP address and you're right. It's Trololo from this comment thread: http://www.thedailydolt.com/2012/12/05/strange-ne

          At some point I should probably make people register their comments. Actually, you can do that if you want. Either through Facebook/Twitter or you can sign up for Disqus which lets you make comments across various websites (and doesn't post to any social networks). That way this won't happen again.

          I'll correct the imposter's name.

    These people are speed bumps on the road of progress. They are put here to gum up the works and slow down any sort of movement towards a better future. And I love the little jump you get when you run over them.

      Road bumps… Sarah Palin is more of a chuck hole.

  5. Truly amazing that some Americans are this out of

    touch with reality. I guess this is what happens when

    all you do is watch Fox News all the time.

      This still seems much more likely than getting to hang out with all your dead pets and relatives after you die and most americans believe that noise.

    I'm sure I'm not alone in this, but as soon as someone starts lending credibility to something like this, I immediately file them under 'crazy idiot' in my mind, and stop paying them any attention.
