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 Kinkos 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 sons baseball game.
That got Taitz thinking. She has three sons: Ones 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 shes 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 RobertsThank you very much, maamand 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 Hanleywho, Taitz then implied, worked for Obama. As she handed out bound-and-laminated copies of her hundred-page legal pleadings to reporters, including the Weeklys 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.
Theres a term some use for people like Taitz, and she doesnt like it. Its birtheror, 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 Obamas 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 isnt president and probably wasnt 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.
Thats demeaning, Taitz says. I dont call anybody names.
This isnt 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 doesnt like: traitors, Muslims, terrorists.

More power to the lady. I admire and respect what she is doing. Every night I will pray that she is successful.
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?
Unlimited control over everything and everybody = DICK-TATER-SHIP
I agree! I’m with you.
Re: “More power to the lady. I admire and respect what she is doing. Every night I will pray that she is successful.”
Obama is stooping low, but it will catch up to him.
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.
Re: “Im obsessed with his eligibility.
His BC is the underlying document that can prove it.”
Is Orly American-born?
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 Obamas grandmother shows that she never said he was born in Kenyain fact, she repeatedly said he was born in Hawaii. The law allowing foreign-born children to obtain Hawaiian COLBs didnt exist until 20 years after Obama was born, while Obamas published COLB says his birth information was recorded four days after his birth in 1961. And those forensic experts who say Obamas document is phony? There have only been three of them: Two havent published their real names or any verifiable credentials (one went by the moniker TechDude), and the other merely said that she cant make a determination of a documents authenticity based solely on a JPEG.
She used to be my DENTIST.
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.
What if someone in the Hawaii gov’t office secretely released the BC information, like a copy or something?
Indeed he is, and it will.
No, she doesn’t need to be. She isn’t trying to run for president.
Cool! I used to live several hundred yards from her office.
A subpoena of Obama’s birth certificate would have more impact.
