Cartoon Taitz Fined

“When a lawyer files complaints and motions without a reasonable basis for believing that they are supported by existing law or a modification or extension of existing law, that lawyer abuses her privilege to practice law, [Judge] Land writes. When a lawyer uses the courts as a platform for a political agenda disconnected from any legitimate legal cause of action, that lawyer abuses her privilege to practice law. When a lawyer personally attacks opposing parties and disrespects the integrity of the judiciary, that lawyer abuses her privilege to practice law. When a lawyer recklessly accuses a judge of violating the judicial code of conduct with no supporting evidence beyond her dissatisfaction with the judges rulings, that lawyer abuses her privilege to practice law. When a lawyer abuses her privilege to practice law, that lawyer ceases to advance her cause or the ends of justice. . .”
— From “Attorney Orly Taitz Fined $20,000 for Frivolous ‘Birther’ Litigation,” Jonathan Turley, Oct. 13, 2009.

“Judge Clay Land makes the toughest statement about Taitzs antics here:
‘The Court finds that counsels conduct was willful and not merely negligent. It demonstrates bad faith on her part. As an attorney, she is deemed to have known better. She owed a duty to follow the rules and to respect the Court. Counsels pattern of conduct conclusively establishes that she did not mistakenly violate a provision of law. She knowingly violated Rule 11. Her response to the Courts show cause order is breathtaking in its arrogance and borders on delusional. She expresses no contrition or regret regarding her misconduct. To the contrary, she continues her baseless attacks on the Court.'”
— David Weigel, “Orly Taitz Sanctioned for $20,000,” Washington Independent, Oct. 13, 2009.

Was the $20K fine enough? Maybe when Taitz becomes a real lawyer she will appreciate what just happened. I wonder if she is a mail order bride, just like her law degree? She is perfect reporter material for “Fake News”, where unfounded rumors and innuendo reign supreme , unlike a our US courts of law, where you need to present documented facts, not half baked lies (prepare for more failures). When flies get too close to the lights they get burned, Taitz just got burned, thing is, like a fly she will continue, no end in sight. Poor little Birthers they are haters not debaters.

A lawyer, dentist, realtor and black belt, wow I must say a JACK of all trades master of none.

Before Taitz there was Philip J. Berg, Esq. who brought lawsuits as well. In October 2008, a federal judge dismissed Berg’s silly suit by saying his claims that Obama was not born in the US were “frivolous and not worthy of discussion.” He added that Berg “ventured into the unreasonable.” (I love the understatement.) A similar lawsuit was dismissed in March 2009. (Sources:, and saw and handled the original birth certificiate, including the state seal embossed on the back.

It’s incredible, with this mountain of evidence against them, why Taitz and Berg continue to clog up our courts and waste time and money on this fool’s errand, but I’ll bet there’s some Fat Cat right-winger behind it all. Hello, Richard Mellon Scaife…
