Judge: OC Birther Orly Taitz Can’t Stop Obama’s Swearing-In

In careful detail, a federal judge explains why South Orange County's realtor/birther/dentist/lawyer Orly Taitz picked the wrong avenue to fight President Barack Obama's swearing-in.

MISSION VIEJO, CA -- Is Barack Obama the legitimate president of the United States? Can he be sworn in Sunday?

In lawsuit after lawsuit, South Orange County's Orly Taitz has repeatedly said ‘no.’

Taitz, who has claimed residence in Laguna Niguel, Aliso Viejo and Rancho Santa Margarita, lost her latest legal battle in federal court Wednesday as she sought to bar the president's swearing-in.

Her claim that Obama "committed treason, fraud or conspiracy to fabricate proof that he is a natural born American citizen" is "legally untenable," wrote U.S. District Court Judge Morrison C. England, Jr. in the 13-page order.

England said Taitz should have taken up her claim with the U.S. Congress, for "the Constitution gives Congress, and Congress alone, the power to remove the President."

The court has no say in the matter, England said: "The Court cannot require that President Obama present, or even possess," a birth certificate or social security card.

In the decision, England lists five cases rejected by other courts that claim Obama is ineligible to serve. Then he names seven more failed cases filed by Taitz.

Why have the cases failed? Taitz said during the hearing it has been the work of "dishonest and corrupt judges."

England disagreed.

"Plaintiffs have failed in the Courts, and will undoubtedly continue to fail in the Courts, because they ask the Court to supplant the legislative branch and disregard the fundamental doctrine of separation of powers," he wrote.

Have you not heard of "When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth"? Every single Republican, Romney and Hillary are in on this! It is just common sense, and Sherlock Holmes (on CBS, a librul media pustule) agrees. Therefore, please consider giving generously to Orly's cause: http://www.orlytaitzesq.com/

Sad to have that tossed into your face the day after Martin Luther King, Jr. day huh?
Norman Oppegard January 22, 2013 at 08:09 PM
Mr. Kamath, is the inimitable Ms. Tait, Esq. operating out of a 401c3 or 401c4 organization? If a 401c3, please sign me up as I need to deduct that extra 4% or so from my increased taxes in 2013. Thank you in advance for your prompt response.

"Sorry, JustUs, but -- unsurprisingly -- you stand on zero facts, and a mile of racial animus." I bet you haven't ever viewed the MCSO 1.5 hour video presentation on the findings of their investigation that documented forensic and scientific proof that Obama's BC and selective service reg card are both as phony as 3 dollar bills, have you Mr. Brain Stem? It's easy to attack the messenger. It's much harder to attack the FACTS. heh. They explained it in such a way that a 3rd grader could understand the damning evidence. So it might be a couple grade above your level, Trent1280. heh. :^)

Shripathi, I left short of my degree to join Officers Training in The USMC during the early Vietnam era. I have never claimed to be an university graduate though I hold four diplomas in Silcon Wafer Processes. The University of Alabama thought enough about my life efforts for the university, civic activities and this combined with my worldwide success in developing high technology business, that their Executive Board voted me in as a National Vice President of the University of Alabama Alumni Assn. I know plenty of incompetent politicians with degrees holding public office. Shutting down the negative mud slinging politicians and their ardent supporters (most all of them hiding behind aliases) is not worth the effort. Thanks for your offer! Politicians like me as much as I like them because I expect honesty and integrity.

Herbert Hoover had a foreign born parent and he's WAY after the signing of the constitution. Examples of foreign born parents....Andrew Jackson (1829-1837) is the only president born of two immigrants, both from Northern Ireland. Presidents with one immigrant parent are Thomas Jefferson (1801-1809), whose mother was born in England, James Buchanan (1857-1861) and Chester Arthur (1881-1885), both of whom had Protestant Irish fathers. Arthur's mother was born in Vermont, but her family moved to Canada and that is where she met her husband and where they lived before moving to the US together. Woodrow Wilson (1913-1921) and Herbert Hoover (1929-1933), whose mothers were born respectively in England and Canada.
Shripathi Kamath January 22, 2013 at 11:41 PM
Ah, now I can totally understand why you do not need to produce your attendance records at the university. Because even if you did, people might ask for the "original attendance records" printed on paper with ink available at that time, and it'd never end. "The University of Alabama thought enough about my life efforts for the university, civic activities and this combined with my worldwide success in developing high technology business, that their Executive Board voted me in as a National Vice President of the University of Alabama Alumni Assn." Then you have much in common with a Barrack Obama, since people, not just an executive board, thought enough of him that they voted him President of the USA. Twice. Actually no, you have much in common with a Joe Biden, for much the same reasons.
Matt January 22, 2013 at 11:50 PM
Look. For those who are stupid, we had plenty of presidents with foreign born parents. The last one before O was a man named Herbert Hoover. Guess what. He's past the signing of the constitution. So. Who is claiming Hoover is not a legitimate president?

I always thought that it was very strange that a scholar like Barack Hussein Obama refused to publicly disclose his college transcripts and records. I mean, gee, even George W. Bush, who was not regarded as a scholar, was more than happy to release his. Consequently, I can only logically assume that Barack Hussein Obama has something to hide. Something that he doesn't want us to see. If he were REALLY that interested in his PRIVACY he wouldn't have run for POTUS in the first place. Besides, he has proven to us so many times that he is a repeated liar that his refusal to share his collegel records with us just reinforces my belief that he is probably not entitiled, by law, to be our POTUS. But since we are a manipulated and gamed nation, the ones who should call him out refuse to do it. And, as I've said so many times before, the laws were made only to be obeyed by the little people. The evidence is overwhelming.
Dan Avery January 23, 2013 at 01:20 AM
Actually, Bush never released his. And if you can't figure out what sort of grades you need to not only be admitted to Harvard Law, but then to edit the Harvard Law Review...well then you seriously have no idea how foolish your statement is.
JustUs January 23, 2013 at 03:05 AM
Absolute baloney. George W. Bush released his transcipts from Yale University. It was the talk of the town for a week. People were criticizing him for being a very average student. Yet Barack H. Obama hides his college transcripts yet prides himself on being this big constitutional scholar. He wasn't even able to articulate the Marbury vs. Madison case which a 2nd year law student should know by heart. heh. Obama is a fraud. Inside and out. In many, many ways. Any casual observer with common sense could see that.
Dan Avery January 23, 2013 at 04:44 AM
JustUs, what is the score on the LSAT you need to get into Harvard Law? What do you have to do to distinguish yourself in order to edit the Harvard Law Review? How many people have actually edited the Harvard Law Review? How many of them were African-American? How many of them were anything other than white men? These are questions you can't answer because...gee, you'd have to change your entire world view.
Dan Avery January 23, 2013 at 04:45 AM
And by the way, Bush never released his transcripts. We just all knew he was a drunk and a coked-out horny frat boy so we assumed he got C's and you're just running with that speculation.
Lawrence (Larry) McCook January 24, 2013 at 04:02 AM
Shripathi, Actually I have absolutely nothing in common with Barrack Obama or Joe Biden. I am from the old school and a former active supporter of Ronald Reagan. It is too bad that both political parties have failed our country. We have not had a true leader since Ronald Reagan.
Lawrence (Larry) McCook January 24, 2013 at 04:04 AM
John Smith, Is your first name "Captain"?
Lawrence (Larry) McCook January 24, 2013 at 04:06 AM
Bush was definitely a guy that I would have enjoyed partying with in college!
Dan Avery January 24, 2013 at 06:52 PM
Me too if he was buying. Seriously he always struck me as a pretty nice guy who was, unfortunately for us, intellectually lazy.
Dan Avery January 24, 2013 at 07:00 PM
Reagan looks pretty liberal these days and I doubt Republicans would elect him. And I'll debate you on him being a leader. He wasn't. The last real leader this country had was FDR. Reagan, like the rest of them, was just good at spin: "mistakes were made." That's a direct quote from your leader. Notice the lack of a noun in that sentence. It's perfect deniability. Only a snake-oil salesman would make such a statement. A real leader would have taken responsibility and then gotten to the bottom of the gun running, money laundering problem his administration was facing.
Dan Avery January 24, 2013 at 07:04 PM
sorry but when it comes to Taitz, who I doubt is a "lady," tenacity is actually spelled xenophobia.
MayMom February 02, 2013 at 03:38 AM
Put in power by the "elites" - seriously. Who do you think Romney would have represented? Talk about elites. Do you not see what President Obama has done for those that have been left behind for so long. How on earth could we possibly be living on the same planet and see things so differently.
Lisa February 05, 2013 at 05:46 AM
its not that he's not a citizen but due to his father being Kenyan born, he's not considered a "natural born citizen" which requires both parents to be US citizens. Although John McCain was not US born, both of his parents were making him a natural born citizen.
Lisa February 05, 2013 at 05:57 AM
Yes, he is an American citizen but most anti-Obama people, including myself, dislike his complete lack of regard for the Constitution. I could give a rat's @$$ about his color. He came out of nowhere as a freshman senator who missed a large percentage of senate meetings to become POTUS?!!! Who else with so few credentials has pulled that off? That's why there is suspicion that he was "placed" and not elected.
JustUs February 05, 2013 at 05:58 AM
"How many of them were African-American? How many of them were anything other than white men? Obama is half-white. You libs continuously seem to forget that. He is NOT a 'black' President. He is a mixed race President. Not 'black'. Can we agree on that at least?
Lisa February 05, 2013 at 06:03 AM
TT, if there were truly 2 political parties, that would be the case but they are just 2 branches of the same ideology. Anyone with any independent and truly pure intentions for the US was squashed down and ignored by the media- like Ron Paul. That candidate for the Green party was not allowed to attend the republican debate.
JustUs February 05, 2013 at 06:05 AM
Bush '41 was a good and decent man. A war hero and a gentleman. And very intelligent. Bush '43 was pretty much a spoiled idiot who rode the coattails of his old man. He really had no business being President. He never really accomplished much. In fact, he destroyed most of the opportunities handed to him by his family. He nearly took the entire nation down financially. The only reason he was elected was because he was a member or the Bush family. He ruined any opportunity for Jeb to run for that office. Not that Jeb would be any better IMO.
Lisa February 05, 2013 at 06:05 AM
If he's so smart, then why are his school records sealed? Why are all (normally) public records sealed? Doesn't that strike anyone as odd? I don't think its racist to demand some transparency from the person who holds the highest office in our country.
Lisa February 05, 2013 at 06:09 AM
Don't forget, "media" does not necessarily equal journalism. Actual journalism seems to be absent in most mainstream media. And, any investigative reporting seems to met with ridicule, if the results of one's research are not politically correct.
Dan Avery February 05, 2013 at 04:49 PM
Who else pulled that off? Gee, let's see. Ronald Reagan and Bush the Younger to name two. Plus they were both C students. I'm pretty sure we can find other examples in History. Now give me two examples of how he has disregarded the Constitution.
Dan Avery February 05, 2013 at 04:53 PM
Lisa, His school records aren't sealed. It's a privacy matter. You can't get anyone's. Mine, yours if you went, etc. But use your head. Google what sort of LSAT scores you need to get into Harvard Law. Then ask yourself what sort of GPA you'd need to be able to edit the Harvard Law Review. O'bama did both. How did you distinguish yourself academically?
tiny February 05, 2013 at 06:02 PM
The issue here is one of honesty, not intellegence. If 44 wasn't a globalist puppet, the easiest thing in the world he could get support for and pass would be Glass-Steagall, because this targets the financial 1% that made money the not honest way, and ultimately if an FDR rebuilding came next would be the thing to most help those who voted for him, along with most everybody else.
