U.S. Supreme Court Upholds $20,000 Sanction Against Birther Queen Orly Taitz

Monday, August 16, 2010

Every so often, the U.S. Supreme Court gets it right. This is one of those times.

The High Court ruled to uphold a $20,000 fine against Orly Taitz, the self-anointed leader of the so-called Birther movement challenging President Obama’s citizenship.

The court decision on Monday refused to block a Federal judge’s October 2009 ruling that required the California lawyer and dentist, Orly Taitz, to pay a $20,000 fine for filing “frivolous litigation.” The judge said Taitz misused the Federal courts to push a political agenda.

Taitz sued in Georgia Federal court on behalf of Army Capt. Connie Rhodes. Rhodes tried to avoid deployment to Iraq by claiming President Obama wasn’t born in the United States, thereby making his presidency illegitimate.

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito on Monday rejected Taitz’s second request to block the sanctions. U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas had previously rejected a similar request from Taitz. Justices Alito and Thomas are Republicans.

From almost the moment Barack Obama became president, Orly Taitz started to pepper the Hawaii State Health Department with excessive requests for copies of the president’s birth certificate. Her requests became so numerous and costly that the state legislature was forced to take the extraordinary step of passing a measure allowing the Office of Information Practices to declare such an individual a “vexatious requester” and restrict rights to government records for a period of two years.

    What I don’t understand is, why doesn’t the CA Board of Medical Licenses who oversee dentists pull this crazy broad’s sheepskin so she can no longer practice dentistry?

    There has got to be professional standards.

  2. Harry says:

    I think $20,000 is a lowball fine. Taitz is a lawyer and a dentist. She can afford to live in Newport Beach. I say raise the fine to $100,000.

  3. Walk on Socks says:

    Taitz is an Israeli Jew.
    The Israeli Jews wanted Hillary to be president.
    Taitz is an Israeli Jew.
    The Israeli Jews hate Barack Obama.

    Case closed.

  4. Rachel says:

    Walk on Socks – You’re 100% correct. Some of the scariest anti-Obama editorials I’ve read are found in the on-line Israeli media. When Bibi rages against our president, the Israeli media rages too. I say Taitz has no right to even live in the USA. She’s a dual national and abuses our judicial system, costing states like Hawaii precious resource when we’re in the midst of a national recession. Send her home please.

  5. Thai Noodles says:

    I wonder if Orly Taitz’ dental patients realize she’s the Birther Queen?

  6. DMason says:

    The picture on the right is how Orly’s looks when she wakes up in the morning. The picture on the left is how Orly looks after 3 hours of hair and make-up and heavy photoshop. I like the picture on the right best.

  7. Miss Courtet says:

    Separated at birth? ROFLMAO! Take your meds, Orly.

  8. Randy Arroyo says:

    Bleed the bitch into bankruptcy!

  9. Chad Lebanon says:

    Whoa! Turned back by Alito and Thomas?

    This is not a good day in Birtherville. Orly the Nutcase has nowhere to turn now.

  10. Preston says:

    Poor little Birthers (still in denial about their losses), but our Judges will continue to smack down the crazies .

    To all the birthers in La, La Land, it is on you to prove to all of us that your assertion is true (TOUGH WHEN YOU KEEP LOSING CASES), if there are people who were there and support your position then show us the video (everyone has a price), either put up or frankly shut-up. I heard Orly Taitz, is selling a tape (I think it’s called “Money, Lies and Video tape”). She is from Orange County, CA, now I know what the mean when they say “behind the Orange Curtain”, when they talk about Orange County, the captial of Conspiracy Theories.

    You know Obama has a passport, he travel abroad before he was a Senator, but I guess they were in on it.
    In my opinion the Republican Party has been taken over the most extreme of clans; the Baggers, Birthers and Blowhards (people who love to push their beliefs on others while trying to take away the rights of those they just hate) and that’s who they need to extract from their party if they real want to win in November. Good Luck, because as they said in WACO, “We Ain’t Coming Out”.

    I wonder if Orly Taitz, 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. The way our courts work is that you get a competent lawyer, verifiable facts and present them to a judge, if the facts are real and not half baked lies, then, and only then, you proceed to trial. The Birthers seem to be having a problem with their so called facts that they present. Let’s face it no one will go along with you until you guys win a case, but until then, you will continue to appear dumb, crazy or racist, or maybe all three. A lawyer, dentist, realtor and black belt, WOW I must say a JACK of all trades master of none.

    I heard that Orly Taitz, now wants to investigate the “Republican 2009 Summer of Love” list: Assemblyman, Michael D. Duvall (CA), Senator John Ensign (NV), Senator Paul Stanley (TN), Governor Mark Stanford (SC), Board of Ed Chair, and Kristin Maguire AKA Bridget Keeney (SC), she wants to re-establish a family values party, good luck with that.

    We won the election and now these sore losers will continue to spew their hate with lies.

  11. Jolly Roger says:

    Another day in the Krazy Klanservative Kaukus. I’m amazed that Orly’s buddy Allito didn’t find a way to save her.

  12. feminazi says:

    Taitz is motivated by obsession. In her case, the belief that Obama is a foreign national and therefore, can’t serve as president. But, if she were healthy, she could travel to Honolulu and view the original certificate of live birth and even interview the doctor who delivered Obama back in the early 1960’s. But, she isn’t going to do this because then she would be forced to have to drop all this foolishness that forms the foundation of the birther movement.

  13. Plumsassy says:

    I hate to burst your bubble guys, but Taitz is correct; by Obama’s own admission he is only a Native born citizen Not a Natural Born citizen as required by law, also born of duel citizenship on his father side, which makes him ineligible .. Still do not think so check out his 2008 site Fight the Smears : http://www.theobamafile.com/_exhibits/FightTheSmearsCOLBHTML.htm . No … do not want to take the time , then here is a copy and paste of the comment in question. Hi everyone!

    People who are determined to keep us divided start these rumors about Barack’s birth certificate to manipulate us into thinking he is not an American citizen.

    The fact is Barack Obama was born in the state of Hawaii in 1961, a native citizen of the United States of America.

    Learn the facts and see the birth certificate for yourself:


    Together we can make sure these negative and divisive attacks don’t affect this election.

    Thanks for your help.
    If you still do not believe me go look for yourselves I gave you the link .

    While I run hot and cold vis a vis President Obama, it is his policies and cabinet choices that drive me up the wall.

    However, the entire Birther controversy is an empty argument not grounded in logic or fact.

    The president was born in Hawaii in 1961 to an American mother. His legal and legitimate status as an American citizen is not in doubt.

    The United State Supreme Court has, on at least two occasions examined the issue of Mr. Obama’s legal and legitimate status as an American citizen and concluded he is entitled to legally function as the President of the United States under the rules of the US Constitution.

    As to him holding dual citizenship. This has never been proven — it is and it remains the fodder of rumor. But, staying on the topic of dual citizenship, both George W. Bush and Hillary R. Clinton are dual nationals. Are you aware of this?

    George W. Bush holds dual U.S. and British passports. He was eligible to serve as president. In Hillary R. Clinton’s case, she holds dual U.S. and Irish passports. She was eligible to run for president and had she been elected, was legally able to be sworn in.

    I think there is enough to attack President Obama for without going off the cliff of hyperbole, fiction and rumor, don’t you agree?

  15. Prairiedog says:

    The Birthers need to give it a rest. Obama’s legit.

    Sorry to disappoint, y’all.

  16. Shayne K. says:

    Wasn’t John McCain born in Panama? How does this make him eligible to run for president?

  17. bradfrmphnx says:

    I believe McCain was born on a military base, and his father was military. That is enough to give him citizenship.

  18. LM says:


    I have always wanted to see the birth certificate AND I believe Obama is fully legally qualified to be president (which I, for the record, am not).

    Am I a “birther”?

    During the primaries I a) thought it almost certain there was something else on there that would raise issues about his integrity; b) thought this likely to cause harm if it came out after the election; and c) believed that as a precedent, these documents should be examined as part of a background check for such and important office.

    I don’t, by the way, care much now since the election is over and done with. But to call people who ask to see a carfully hidden document “crazies” is just cheap propaganda. If this were someone you politically opposed you’d chase down anything they were trying to hide.

    i think this is just funny the n word is a white insult to a black man not a black man to another black man its just a word why do u wana say it so bad?
