    Re: Anyone else intrigued? Just a little?

    Yea, this is all a bit of a joke now. I'll admit I was trying to stoke the fires a bit when I went through everything. Had too much time on my hands at work and was still a bit resentful of Obama being elected. I have little doubt that colored my perception of the "evidence." There are certainly other reasons to not want Obama as President, most not based on some conspiracy.

    However, my point wasn't that there may be something to the "birther" controversy. Honestly, I just found it hilarious that people were causing such an uproar over where the President of the United States was born and how it hadn't been simply and irrefutably quelled by the release of Obama's birth certificate. Instead he went through great lengths to prevent such a conclusive solution.

    That Orly Taitz is a class-act. I guess that's what you get with an lawyer who received her degree online! Same goes for that WND website... what a joke. Wish I could go back in time and totally refrain from reading it or posting anything from it.

      From Orly's Wikipedia page... Awesome:

      Attorney misconduct
      On October 13, 2009, Judge Clay Land ordered "Counsel Orly Taitz ... to pay $20,000 to the United States, through the Middle District of Georgia Clerk's Office, within thirty days of the date of this Order as a sanction for her misconduct in violation of Rule 11 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure." Land's decision stated:
      The Court finds that counsel's conduct was willful and not merely negligent. It demonstrates bad faith on her part. As an attorney, she is deemed to have known better. She owed a duty to follow the rules and to respect the Court. Counsel's pattern of conduct conclusively establishes that she did not mistakenly violate a provision of law. She knowingly violated Rule 11. Her response to the Court's show cause order is breathtaking in its arrogance and borders on delusional. She expresses no contrition or regret regarding her misconduct. To the contrary, she continues her baseless attacks on the Court.[35]
      Upon learning of Land's ruling, Taitz said she would appeal the sanction, declaring that Judge Land was "scared to go against the regime" of the "oppressive" Obama administration, and that the sanction was an attempt to "intimidate" her.[36] On March 15, 2010, the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit affirmed the sanctions against Taitz, ordering her to pay the $20,000 fine.[37]
      In July 2010, Taitz applied to the U.S. Supreme Court to stay the enforcement of sanctions, arguing that "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."[38] The application was submitted to Justice Thomas on July 8 and denied by him on July 15.[39][40] Doubting that Justice Thomas signed the denial order, Taitz claims to have requested of Chief Justice Roberts that Thomas's signature be presented to her for verification.[41] In the meantime, on August 9, the federal government filed an “Abstract of Judgment,” a document placing a lien in the amount of $20,000 plus interest on all her real property,[42] prompting Taitz to say, “I will pay the money, and I will continue fighting,” should it happen that her application for stay is ultimately denied and that the Supreme Court consents to her request to authenticate Justice Thomas's signature.[43] On August 16, after being resubmitted to Justice Alito who in turn referred it to the full court, the application for stay was again denied.

      Bahahaha.

          Obama released his long-form birth certificate. Case closed it would seem (as if it wasn't already). Hopefully this puts the nonsense to rest (and Donald Trump along with it).

            I'm just going to echo the Washington Post here and say:

            "Aside from being one of the most idiotic moments in American political history, this marks a level of personal humiliation no previous president has ever been asked to endure."
