Meet Orly Taitz, Queen Bee of People Obsessed With Barack Obama's Birth Certificate
Orange County News ^ | June 17, 2009 | Spencer Kornhaber

Posted on 06/18/2009 5:47:36 PM PDT by real_patriotic_american

Birth of an Obsession With her strong will, busy travel schedule and breathless blogging, Laguna Niguel dentist Orly Taitz has become the most controversial figure in the effort to prove that President Barack Obama is foreign-born

Before she addressed the chief justice of the Supreme Court of the United States on March 13, Dr. Orly Taitz thought about his son and her sons and nearly started to cry.

This was after she had woken up at 3 a.m., headed to Kinko’s in Laguna Niguel, photocopied hundreds of pages, gotten on Interstate 5 heading south, answered questions on her cell phone from a radio station, caught a flight in San Diego, sat for a few hours in Salt Lake City, caught another flight, landed in Spokane, picked up a rental car, driven two hours in falling snow along the Washington-Idaho border, parked, entered University Ballroom at the University of Idaho, and then taken a seat to listen to a speech from Chief Justice John Roberts.

“This is a man who has his priorities straight,” said the law-school faculty member who introduced Roberts, going on to describe how Roberts had skipped part of the pre-event reception to be at his son’s baseball game.

That got Taitz thinking. She has three sons: One’s a singer with an “Elvis Presley voice,” another is a tenth-grade AP student who loves math and basketball, and another is studying to be a doctor at an Ivy League school. Since November of last year, Taitz has been “criss-crossing the country”; talking with activists, law-enforcement officers and government officials; filing lawsuits and finding plaintiffs; and speaking at events. She has had to hire extra help at her two dental offices; she can count on one hand the number of times she has been able to sit down and watch TV; and, worst, she has missed awards ceremonies, sports tournaments and family dinners with her sons. Her mascara-rimmed eyes teared up as she thought about all the time she’s never getting back.

After Roberts gave his talk, he took questions from the audience. Taitz, in her black, turtleneck sweater and gold pendant, was the first person at the microphone. She explained that she was a lawyer who had come all the way from Southern California. She asked Roberts whether he was “aware of some illegal activity that is going on in the Supreme Court of the United States,” and then mentioned that she had printed out a petition with hundreds of thousands of signatures asking for an investigation into the fact that “Barack Hussein Obama, a.k.a. Barry Soetoro, is totally ineligible to be president.” Audience members chuckled as she was interrupted by Roberts—“Thank you very much, ma’am”—and told that she could hand her suitcase full of documents to the security personnel in the room.

* * *

Outside the Santa Ana Courthouse in April, the day that disgraced ex-sheriff Mike Carona was to be sentenced for witness tampering, Taitz met with the Orange County press corps. The journalists had assembled to cover the ruling, but they instead found themselves being addressed by a woman with blond hair, long eyelashes, a low-cut blouse and hands full of binders. Taitz first approached the TV camera crews, but after a few moments of chatter, they directed her to the reporters a few feet away. “I know you,” she said to then-Los Angeles Times staff writer Christine Hanley—who, Taitz then implied, worked for Obama. As she handed out bound-and-laminated copies of her hundred-page legal pleadings to reporters, including the Weekly’s R. Scott Moxley, Taitz smiled and pontificated in her Eastern European accent about the clerks of the Supreme Court whom she believed had been sabotaging her lawsuits.

There’s a term some use for people like Taitz, and she doesn’t like it. It’s “birther”—or, if you want to be really mean, “birfer.” (The controversy was born on the Internet, so naturally the Internet gave it a goofy name.) While rumors about Obama’s background and citizenship simmered throughout the 2008 presidential campaign, after Election Day, those rumors coalesced into a near-religion for a group of true believers. To Taitz and the unknown number of people who agree with her, Barack Obama isn’t president and probably wasn’t even born in the U.S. Taitz, a Laguna Niguel dentist with a law degree from an online academy, has been awarded a few creative variations on the birther term: “The Queen Bee of Birferstan” is probably the best.

“That’s demeaning,” Taitz says. “I don’t call anybody names.”

This isn’t quite true. She calls Obama a “usurper” and an “arrogant jerk from Africa and Indonesia.” She called a judge an “idiot.” And she calls anyone who stands in her way an “Obama thug.” Taitz has built a sizable following on her blog; in the comments for each post at orlytaitzesq.com, you can read a few more names for people whom Taitz doesn’t like: “traitors,” “Muslims,” “terrorists.”

I can see Dr. Orly Taitz having Barack Obama removed from office for not being a natural born citizen.

Looks like the left has decided to go full bore with the smear campaign against anyone they want to shut up. Walpin, Tancredo, the ACORN 8 and the list goes on.

Brownshirts of the left.

Good grief, was there any doubt a Chicago thug wouldn't stoop to the lowest level in history to get what he (they) want?

I’m obsessed with his eligibility.

His BC is the underlying document that can prove it.

Obama must be required to present his original birth certificate. Note the amount in legal fees that he is paying to keep it hidden.

Well, there are some snide comments here and there, but on the whole the article is informative and thorough. One bit bothered me:

For starters, the Pakistan “travel ban” is a complete fabrication based on zero evidence and completely contradicted by State Department records and a 1981 New York Times article. The full transcript from Obama’s grandmother shows that she never said he was born in Kenya—in fact, she repeatedly said he was born in Hawaii. The law allowing foreign-born children to obtain Hawaiian COLBs didn’t exist until 20 years after Obama was born, while Obama’s published COLB says his birth information was recorded four days after his birth in 1961. And those “forensic experts” who say Obama’s document is phony? There have only been three of them: Two haven’t published their real names or any verifiable credentials (one went by the moniker “TechDude”), and the other merely said that she can’t make a determination of a document’s authenticity based solely on a JPEG.

She is not running for President. I was born in the USA and am a natural born American citizen and a veteran of the U.S. armed forces. I want to see Barack Obama’s original birth certificate and several more documents to prove that he is eligible to serve as President. I don’t believe that he is.

It was in the original sin of ineligibility that Obama became president. There should be outrage every single day about this wilful and systematic disregard for the Constitution by the those responsible for safeguarding the elections system in this country.

It’s as severe a violation of process as anything that they are moaning about in Teheran.

I’m not disagreeing with you at all. I want to see the BC too. Even if it is only embarrassing and not disqualifying.

That's a fair question. How much money is it costing the government to try to keep President Obama's birth certificate hidden?

Have to give the writer partial credit for the following 'almost truth': The controversy was born on the Internet, so naturally the Internet gave it a goofy name. The controversy was born on the INternet, witht he Obowma posting of a forged document the affirmative action figure claimed was sent from tthe state officials in Hawaii ... that's right, the CoLB is a fabrication. We have yet to see an actual document proving this lying bastard is Constitutionally eligible ...

A birth certificate showing you were born in the United States is something you either have or you don’t. There are a few rare instances where a certified copy may be difficult or impossible to attain, but for most Americans this isn’t much of a challenge.

In a sane and rational world, every American should find it offensive to have a man in the White House who has not only refused to produce a certified copy or an original birth certificate to be seen and confirmed by the public, but he has even gone to great lengths to prevent the State of Hawaii from releasing or confirming the contents of his birth certificate. All we have are several questionable scanned copies released to biased partisans, with the alleged originals that were scanned being withheld from scrutiny.

Frankly, something stinks about Obama’s birth certificate, and that isn’t a loony, Right Winger’s fantasy. Every candidate for President that has ever been asked to provide their birth credentials has done so, except for Obama.

I believe he is. I haven't looked in a couple of months, I get so depressed when I do. There are LARGE legal fees being paid to a firm Perkins, Coie. Payments are being made from Obama for America campaign funds AND from Obama 2010 which is his 2010 Illinois Senate campaign (set up in 2005 I believe). The Obama 2010 fund is a slush fund. I think a couple million went into it and then out.

I get depressed now thinking about it. His campaign was so dirty. And they won't audit it.

Obama’s published COLB says his birth information was recorded four days after his birth in 1961

Well, whaddya know! I thought you were dead, Cicci! I guess that it was just your crapola crapping out on you.

It's been a whole year now, and you're still flinging that brown thing? My oh My. I thought that that you would be doing something constructive, like taking a nap, scooping up dog dung on the company dole, or maybe learning how to lick stamps at home, You'd be great if you just stuck to it. Good to hear from ya. Good to know that your not still stuck on stupid with this phony balony, nonexistent document.

Are you still making those lovely Reynolds Wrap hats that you wore at the swap meets? Still have that Bumper sticker on your tailpile, the one that says, "I blow for Barack?"

The more things change, the less your brain. Still hanging on to that dream of yours: finding that Holy Pail and Obama's Shroud which has the inscription, "I won" on it. But, here's the skinny, CiciL there a'int none of dem bogus COLBs in here, so take yo greasy aluminum bird hats somewhere else. Unless yo wish to try them on with some slightly used tinfoil from Wendy's. Now they say that a mind is a terrible thing to waste, but you've already wasted all that was left in it. No worries, mate: your green oooze will be put on ice for you. There is no COLB for Obama. There never was. There was only one expert here and I'm the only one who put that puppy away.

It's as dead as disco. but I see you're still pushing the same, worn out baloney about Obama's`BC. Obama's COLB is bogus and is a nonexistent document. The images posted online are fabricated fakes. So, deal with it. Obama's toast, and you 'll be his jelly.
