"'Birther in chief' invited to dinner by Harry Reid
'I have no fear of anything. I'll ask him about eligibility on camera'

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, responsible for putting a charge in races where a seat in the U.S. Senate is at stake for the party, has invited Orly Taitz, the California lawyer responsible for a long list of legal and other challenges to Barack Obama's eligibility, to one of its events that will feature the president.

The invitation prompted Taitz to post a copy on her website under the headline "You want what Mr. Reid????????????"

"I have no fear of anything. I will ask him [about eligibility] on camera," Taitz told WND today.

The e-mailed invitation read: "Please join members of the New York House and Senate congressional delegation along with Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House, Harry Reid, Senate Majority Leader, Chris Van Hollen, Chair, DCCC; Robert Menendez, Chair, DSCC with President Barack Obama.

...

Now THAT would be funny if she did wind up going and asked them all right there on the spot. I'm sure it was a mistaken "mass" email, as they would never allow her in.

But Taitz noted in an e-mail. "Why am I getting this invitation from Harry Reid? Is it a mistake or Harry Reid is trying to push eligibility to the forefront and get rid of Obama in order to save his own skin."

Interesting. Will she RSVP? Sounds like a really fun event (/sarc).

They finally got that phony Long Form Birth Certificate to have that “aged” look?

Either way, Obama is going to look very dumb if he brings out a document with nothing on it that is a problem - except to his Obots.

But I think you’re right - they’ve got something up their sleeve...

That was my first thought, and they could hide it until after the election. And really, I don't know that anyone could ever have the chance to inspect it.

Seems like too great a risk, though, particularly since he has withheld releasing it so long.

They probably have something else in mind as Orly has been pretty much discredited as crazy by both the Left and Right.

No one is really talking about her anymore though I personally salute her determination.

The “Birther in Chief” title reflects a short memory. In 1999 most of the liberal newspapers, dozens of law school professors and Democrat operatives were hard at work preparing to knock off McCain should he prevail in the primaries, over his ineligibility to hold the office because he is not a natural born citizen!.

The Democrats were correct. McCain was not eligible. It isn't clear whether voters paid any attention, but some of the legal analysis was excellent. Dems were very interested in amending Article II just before the 2000 elections. Barney Frank sponsored an honest attempt http://www.scribd.com/doc/8873272/Fred-Hollander-v-Senator-John-McCain-et-al

to Amend Article II in House Joint Res 88 in July of 88, to allow naturalized citizens resident in the U.S. for 20 years, to be reputed natural born citizens (not like Claire McCaskill’s SB 2678, which was political, to provide cover for McCain so no Republican would challenge Obama’s eligibility). This would have covered McCain as well as Schwarzenegger, since McCain is a naturalized citizen through a complicated, but much examined, chain of legal reasoning.

Here is one of several “Birther” cases challenging McCain before the 2000 election:

http://www.scribd.com/doc/8873272/Fred-Hollander-v-Senator-John-McCain-et-al

In McCain's case his issues were widely publicized by the WaPo, the NYT, LA Times - all the progressive voices.

Orly Taitz’ difference is that the state-run media has applied Alinsky rules 5 - “Ridicule is man's most potent weapon” - and thirteen -”Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Taitz legal arguments make a more understandable case, and one better aligned with what “feels right” than with the seemingly unfair accident of McCain's ineligibility - that the Canal Zone was covered by no sovereignty treaty until the year after he was born. Obama’s having been born with allegiance through his non-citizen father to England was a topic of such obvious concern to framers steeped in natural and international law that no one questioned John Jay's suggestion of making it a requirement for presidential eligibility.

Here is an excellent legal summary of McCain's problems. Always remember that presumable objective scholars have biases. Gabriel Chin, like Barney Frank in his amendment proposal above, examines just the soli, born on the soil, requirements for president, but never mentions the jus sanguinis requirement included in the common law definition repeated by John Marshall, Vattel, Morrison Waite, Joseph Story, James Kent, James Wilson, Charles Ev ans Hughes, Dr David Ramsay... Like most attorneys, professors or not, he picked his citations to make his case. But he does a thorough job of it, and reviews lots of case law to do it.

I agree. We are making so much progress all over the country and the Left wants to cast us as a bunch of right wing nuts to try to mollify the damage. The media will be all over it.

--------------------------------

I agree, they'll try just about anything.

The smoking gun is the feeble effort to 'bamboozle' America with the phony birth document (Certification of Live Birth) he put up on his web site. That should have brought an FBI visit for forging a birth certificate.

Now the White House insults our intelligence by showing his new passport. It's not his original passport but his new presidential passport with all of the information on it that confirms Barry's narrative of being born in Hawaii.

Where's the old 1980's passport?

He and his administration think Americans are idiots. They know that you are waiting for the piss-stream media to tell the truth but it ain't ever going to happen.

Clueless Obama-1sm

Good ol’ WND. Where ‘Orly Taitz receives bulk e-mail’ is given a Birther spin, is deemed “Breaking News” and is made their top story of the day. Plus, reaction from...commenters on Orly’s own blog. Stellar research effort, that.

Still, it handily accomplishes one thing: publish yet another article that includes a bunch of links for readers to support the Birther cause by giving money to WND.

Ever consider the possibility that the FBI didn't investigate because it wasn't forged, but authentic?

Of course not, because like a good conspiracy theorist, you take evidence against your theory and interpret it as evidence that yet another agency, in this case the FBI, is in on the conspiracy.

This has "TRAP" written all over it. They will prod Orly to get her to make outlandish statements, and use the footage to disempower and "debunk" the birther movement.

Orly should refuse.Obama is sweating and will fold.They are desperate.

The measure of the movements success is seen in the fact that they are comcerned enough to "invite" her to disempower the movement, a Cloward Piven classic stategy.This after their Obots have tried to mold every blog on the web that so called birthers frequent, deriding Taitz, making fun of her, finding dirt in her personal life, and so on.That did not work. So now the invite? Orly has every reason to refuse, pointing out what they have done to her so far.She should be demanding a public apology from Holder's DoJ.

Orly had better be careful. If she emerges from the invite victorious,Obamas only alternative will be to exercise the ever present liberal fascist option of offing her.

^0% of America does not believe Obama is natural born, in the United States. This is an attempt t9 reduce that number and reverse the trend.All the standard lies used by Obama will be revisited.Orly should be demanding Obama's resigation.

Bubba you are absolutely right. I grabbed a pointer from my “Favorites” file without opening it up again. There were a couple of suits in 2008 and one in 1999, and dozens of Democrats raising questions about McCain's eligibility in 2007/2008, subsiding after Leahy and McCaskill convened a couple of senate hearings to provide cover for McCain, SB2678 and SenRes511. Among the thirty or so pointers, I will search through to find the 1999 complaint.

Of course McCain was not considered much of a threat in his first run, so there wasn't as much energy put into undermining his candidacy. It seems reasonable that the Senate hearings were a quid-pro-quo to keep McCain from asking the questions asked about him of Obama.

Orly gives very generously to the Democrats and continues to invite various offices within the United Nations to take an active roll investigating her claims and begs the UN to protect her personally on US soil...

The pure-hearted acts of a patriot, no doubt.

Why wouldn’t they want to invite her? She is a generous supporter with the added benefit of being an embarrassment to their opponents. Any antics she tries will allow them to point to “delusional birthers.” It’s a win for them.

OK, here it is again:

http://images.nictusa.com/cgi-bin/fecimg/?26020541531

Look halfway down the page, next to “B”, under “Full Name.” It says “Orly Taitz.”

The mailing address given is in Laguna Niguel, California, and the occupation is “Dentist.”

And it says she donated $1000 to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee in 2006.
