Skip to comments.Lakin Goes To Prison - And Here Comes The Next Eligibility Lawsuit

With thanks to WorldNetDaily:
Lt. Colonel Terry Lakin was just convicted, discharged from service and sent to a six-month prison term for refusing orders to deploy to Afghanistan - until Barack Obama turns over his credentials and proves his Constitutional Eligibility to hold office. You thought it was all over, finally? Nope.
Here comes another presidential eligibility lawsuit scheduled for a January 7, 2011 conference in the U.S. Supreme Court. The suit was brought originally by Captain Connie Rhodes, U.S. Army, et al and her attorney, Orly Taitz. Heres the link to the PDF Petition for Writ of Certiorari that Taitz filed, requesting that the lower Court, which dismissed the original case and fined Taitz $20,000.00 for continuing to file motions on behalf of her clients, be ordered by the Supreme Court to review its decision.
Much of the petition centers around two issues:
1) The Courtroom conduct and judicial rulings of the Georgia Middle District Court Justice, Clay D. Land, in which he refused to hear the eligibility case on its merits, then ridiculed and fined Taitz $20,000.00 for continuing to press the legal arguments at hand. Taitz claims that Land provided no explanation as to why she was not allowed to present oral arguments and why her written arguments were unconvincing. He summarily dismissed the case without a review of the evidence.
2) Taitzs investigation into the origins of Barack Obamas Social Security Number, which was originally issued in the State of Connecticut to a man who was born in the late 1890s, includes an affidavit of the facts prepared by former Scotland Yard officer Neil Sankey. There is no record of Obama ever having lived in Connecticut. The original holder of the number is presumed dead. Land dismissed Taitzs investigation as frivolous and refused to hear the evidence.
Taitz is asking for her $20,000.00 back, based upon Constitutional grounds that the fine was levied in retaliation against her and her client. The possibility also exists that the fine was actually imposed to intimidate other potential plaintiffs who might be considering similar actions. Land made direct allusions to the political agenda of the birthers in his dismissal, without looking at any of Taitzs evidence.
Last week the Army convicted Lt. Colonel Terry Lakin in a General Court Martial, without hearing any evidence on his behalf and without allowing him to produce witnesses in his own defense. Lakin is on his way to prison or he is already there. One of Taitzs clients, U.S. Army Reserve Major Stephen Cook, was fired from his contractors job in retaliation for his participation in Captain Rhodes original eligibility lawsuit.
The bodies are beginning to stack up all over the country, figuratively speaking. And Barack Hussein Obama continues to refuse to turn his cards over Occidental College transcripts, Columbia University transcripts, Columbia senior thesis, Harvard University transcripts, financial aid applications, passport records, college application records, public school records, long form birth certificate, Harvard Law Review records, law client lists, Illinois State Legislature records and calendar, and medical records. The computerized on-line image that hes presented as a valid Hawaiian birth certificate would not get your child into Little League Baseball. So, whats in all of those documents that he doesnt want us to see?
Taitz must now present her arguments to the Supreme Court if shes allowed to do so. Theyve to this point refused to hear any of these types of cases. Personally, since Congress and the American Press Corps abjectly refused to do their investigative jobs back in 2008, Id just like hear the evidence argued in an open Court of Law.
I’m just going to kick back and wait for OldDeckHand to step in and tell us all (again) why this just doesn’t matter and why we should all just run along...
Considering the above, one of you with a law degree, can you tell me why or why not, and please elucidate clearly.
This case does not raise any eligibility issues, although Orly Taitz doesn' seem to understand that (she raises all kinds of eligibility arguments in her brief, but that issue isn't in the case anymore). The plaintiff in this case who challenged Obama's eligibility was Connie Rhodes. Rhodes dropped the case, fired Taitz and didn't appeal. Because there is no plaintiff in the case anymore, the eligibility issue is no longer part of the case.
The only person appealing to the Supreme Court is Orly Taitz, and the only issue, therefore, is the $20,000 sanction against her. Taitz also seems to misunderstand why she was sanctioned: it was not for bringing the eligibility case. The sanctions order specifies exactly what she was sanctioned for: accusing the judge of "treason" (that's called "contempt of court," for those of you following along at home), and accusing the judge of meeting with Attorney General Holder in a coffee shop across the street from the courthouse in Georgia (on a day when Holder was appearing publicly in Los Angeles).
Judge Land (a conservative Republican appointed by President Bush at the recommendation of Senator Chambliss) specifically held that Taitz was not sanctioned for her original Complaint, but only for the frivolous and contemptuous language in her motion for reconsideration (a motion she legally had no right to file at all, since her client had already fired her).
I know a number of attorneys and they all feel obama is ineligible to be the President under Article 2. Do you agree?
Pinging on a shameless Kangaroo court, especially on Dr. & Pastor and Patriot James David Manning, PhD, civil rights violations???
Is this guy gonna plead guilty too?
Taitz discredits any cause she involves herself with.
You don’t understand. The Old Deck Hand knows that the legal system is far above and superior to a Constitution written by a bunch of gay founders(according to Harry Reid).
I’m sure you recall the etiquette involved in pinging a Freeper you mention in a comment. I’ll save you the trouble.
Frankly, it's embarrassing that anyone who describes themselves as "conservative" would hang their hat on anything that comes from the court jester known as Orly Taitz.
She's an embarrassment. I'll dance a jig, bare-ass naked on the National Mall if the Court grants cert here.
Of course, I'm sure some will use that denial as additional "proof" that Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas are both in on the George Soros super-conspiracy.
sorry about mentioning another freeper.......I should not have done that.
I think Thomas already admitted they were ducking the issues. Soros told him too duck and cover?
I would be interested in this opinion as well
Sure, that's it. You know, because Soros and Clearance Thomas are so close - regular drinkin' buddies.
I have it on good authority that George Soros and Antonin Scalia have a time-share in Boca - shh, don't tell anyone.
She won't be.
Funny. I just thought it was cowardice and lack of integrity, but now that Soros is involved it makes more sense. You have uncovered a great truth.
I’ll dance a jig, bare-ass naked on the National Mall
Orly Titz.......... Don’t hold your breath on this one being granted.
And there ought to be so many of legal cases similar to these that the President thinks they are like flies on his stink.Maybe then the supreme Court will do the Right thing and Honor the Oath administered to all public servants including the despotic branch called the Judiciary.
