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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.
