Judge tosses birther suit, threatens orly with sanctions.
A federal judge in Georgia has threatened Orly Taitz, de facto leader of the birther movement, with sanctions if she ever brings another frivolous case before him, news reports say.

Judge Clay Land of the US District Court in Columbus, Georgia, threw out a case brought by US Army Captain Connie Rhodes, who earlier this month sued for the right to refuse deployment orders to Iraq, on the argument that the commander-in-chief of the armed forces, President Barack Obama, was not born in the United States and is therefore not the legitimate head of the army.

According to the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer, Judge Clay stated in his ruling that the plaintiff has presented no credible evidence and has made no reliable factual allegations to support her unsubstantiated, conclusory allegations and conjecture that President Obama is ineligible to serve as president of the United States.

The ruling continues: Instead, she uses her complaint as a platform for spouting political rhetoric, such as her claims that the president is an illegal usurper, an unlawful pretender, an unqualified imposter.

As WTVM-TV in Columbus reported, the judge also stated that Rhodes attorney, birther leader Orly Taitz, will be subject to counsel sanctions for bringing any future actions in his court which are similarly frivolous.

7. Maybe she'll take my Cheney=Boorman case!
She'll have some time to prove my hypothesis that Richard Cheney is in fact Martin Boorman!

11. Why not both? It is Orly after all
She's capable of believing anything.
Doublethink would be a stroll in the park for her.

8. What happened to the oily taint reporter that was supposed to call Steph Miller?
She has this *ahem* lady call the show saying she worked for oily taint, and was going to call after the judge announcements.
have I missed this *ahem* lady's return calls?

Glad to see the judge has sense enough to threaten sanctions against oily...what a stain on GOOD litigation.

sorry I'll stop because it'll just degrade into a misogynistic tyraid against orly, who is just a tool!
