Local Obama-Phobe Seeks And Annoys Justice
Thanks to commenter "Doubtful" for bringing extraordinary news to our attention: Dr. Orly Taitz, our Mission Viejo/Rancho Santa Margarita dentist turned political activist, has embarked on a crusade to harass members of the Supreme Court of the United States.
Last Friday, Taitz got up at 3 in the morning to journey to the University of Idaho, where Chief Justice John Roberts gave a speech followed by a Q&A session. With tenacity and, presumably, the will of God, Taitz managed to be the first person to throw a question Robert's way: "I wanted to know if you are aware of some illegal activity that is going on in the Supreme Court of the United States."
See, the Court's clerks have been maliciously obscuring briefs filed by Taitz and friends in cases arguing that Barack Obama isn't actually a U.S. citizen and therefor cannot be president. You can listen to the exchange here. Roberts interrupted her and thanked her for traveling so far before saying he couldn't comment on pending cases but "would be happy" to look at any documents she had brought. Lucky him: According to Taitz's blog, she was carrying a suitcase full of material and handed it over to the security agents who escorted her out of the room.
And this comes a few days after Taitz similarly confronted Antonin Scalia in L.A. and, supposedly, was told by Scalia that he would totally be up for hearing her case if the other justices weren't so lame.
This has all made Taitz the toast of the "birther" blogosphere, with the term "hero" being thrown around quite a bit. As World Net Daily reports, the "room was stunned silent" by Taitz's question to Roberts. As the audio recording reports, World Net Daily is full of shit.
