Taitz responds to judge’s sanctions order

The lead Birther attorney isn't happy with the $20,000 fine imposed on her earlier this week

Topics: Orly Taitz, Birthers, War Room,

Orly Taitz doesn’t take defeat lightly — if she did, the lead lawyer in the Birther movement would have given up tilting at windmills a long time ago. So it’s not surprising that her reaction to the news that U.S. District Judge Clay Land has imposed a $20,000 sanction on her for her conduct in one lawsuit before his court is an angry one.

In a post on her blog, headlined, “How mcuh criminal activity do they need to cover up, for them to attack me so viciously,” Taitz wrote:



In regards to Judge Clay Land, his outrageous decision to sanction me $20,000 for repeatedly bringing eligibility issue, shows how far this regime will go to harass and intimidate attorneys who dare to question Obama’s legitimacy.

Anybody with half a brain in his head understands that if judge Land really believed that my law suits were frivolous, the easiest way to prove it, would be to order discovery. If Obama is legitimate, he would’ve shown proof of legitimacy. The fact that this judge decided to try to intimidate me with $20,000 of sanctions instead of ordering Obama to spend $10 on a copy of his hospital birth certificate and a hospital birthing file, shows how corrupt this regime is, how many in federal judiciary are aiding and abetting this massive fraud perpetrated on each and every member of US military and each and every citizen of this country. That is a sign of a dictatorial regime, of tyranny.

Taitz has also said that she will not pay the sanction, and will appeal it “as high as I have to go.”
