Orly Taitz Appeals $20,000 Fine to Supreme Court

It seems like ancient history now, but it was only in September that a federal judge in Georgia threatened to fine Laguna Niguel's Orly Taitz with $10,000 for filing a frivolous lawsuit--and then doubled the amount of the fine when Taitz continued to accuse him of treason.

A federal appeals court upheld the sanctions, so now Taitz says she is making a last-ditch effort to petition the Supreme Court. On her website, Taitz is offering to send you an autographed copy of the 300-page (including attachments) pleading--if you donate $100 to her cause.

The 26-page brief, addressed to Associate Justice Clarence Thomas, is posted here. At one point, Taitz takes issue with Judge Clay Land--the guy who slapped her with the sanctions--having earlier compared her to "Alice in Wonderland."

While Taitz appreciates Land's fondness of Lewis Carroll, it is really important for Land to wake up from his slumber and sweet dreams about Alice in Wonderland and appreciate the fact that US military did not fall in the rabbit hole and is not looking for an adventure

Here's one of the paragraphs in the section entitled "Legal Argument"...

Taitz was born and raised in the Communist totalitarian regime of the Soviet Union, where no one single attorney was ever able to get a judgment against the Soviet Rulers and the regime. No Constitutional attorney was able to uphold any Constitutional rights of Soviet citizens, as those rights were routinely violated by the regime and the judiciary. It didn't mean that the legal actions by the Constitutional attorneys were frivolous. It simply meant that the whole country descended in the darkness of tyranny. Similarly, allowing sanctions by judge Land to stand, will signify beginning of tyranny in the United states of America and end to the Constitutional Republic which is the foundation of this nation.The question is as follows: "If the judiciary can sanction an attorney for bringing an action to uphold a Constitutional right, what is next? Will FEMA camps be turned into the next GULAG? Will we see a wave of political assassinations of dissidents, as were seen in numerous totalitarian regimes around the World, such as regime of Saddam Hussein in Iraq or regime of Mahmud Ahmadinejad in Iran?

Later, Taitz busts out a tea-party chestnut in positing that Saul Alinsky invented insults:

Judge Land has used a pejorative term "birther", describing Taitz as the leader of the "birther" movement. It is not only not justified, but totally despicable that a Federal judge would use the technique of Saul Alinsky in trying to insult, assault and marginalize an attorney.

There's a section about Taitz being "forced" to seek protection from the United Nations. The pancake paintings get mentioned. America is called a "No Man's Land." It's CC'd to Elena Kagan and the International Criminal Bar in the Hague. It's a masterpiece. It will get Taitz nowhere.
