For the past two years, Orly Taitz has been the face of Birther nation with her constant, and some would say redundant, petitions to release and investigate conflicting or otherwise ill-provided documentation on behalf of the President of the United States. In May 2010, a handful of rogue journalists illegally accessed Obama’s private information and came forward with the uncomfortable assertion that his social security number not only belonged to that of a deceased man from CT, but that Barack had also utilized an entirely separate number throughout his employ until 1986.
As a result of this finding, Taitz brought a motion before the California courts to investigate and subsequently prove the President’s illegitimacy and treason against the United States of America. Unfortunately for her, the system seems less-than-amused by her incessant “call to arms.” And unfortunately for Birthers (or justice system critics as a whole), Judge Lamberth held nothing back as he railed her stupidity while simultaneous praising her dedication to her cause. One doesn’t have to agree with efforts in order to be personally offended when public officials make a public mockery of their constituents’ constitution-abiding actions. Weren’t we taught to ask questions, and above all, seek those answers out for ourselves?
On August 30, the case was thrown out due to the fact that the Privacy act of 1974 protects everyone equally, including the ridiculously famous, from having their information included in anything made public by the Freedom of Information Act. What remains unclear is why Taitz would need the exact number, considering she already has it. Isn’t she just asking for confirmation that those digits are in fact being currently utilized by Barack Hussein Obama and correspondingly that they were in fact used by a man from Connecticut until two decades ago? There is no real need to display them publicly.
So as it stands, the justice system (as run by the government) will continue to attempt to disperse Birther efforts by tossing anything remotely relevant to their cause out of the court rooms. This on the basis that it would offend the President’s privacy, that there is no public interest (debatable), and that the numbers obtained illegally and under “false pretenses” cannot be corroborated with due to the nature of their conquest. This hardly seems the tactic to take with passionate fringe efforts. If they really are so silly, much like Green Bay Packers cheese fans, then wouldn’t it be much quicker and systematically less obtrusive to simply just prove them wrong? Or perhaps with Obama’s uncle recently being outted for hosting his own stolen social security number, is it really that impossible to consider? There have always been wingnut fanatics, but it’s hard to disregard them as such when a man spent over five million dollars and two long years in court to avoid disclosing personal documentation that was likewise demanded of his opposing counterpart. Evidently Panama doesn’t shift Connecticut digits like Hawaii does.
