Another Birther Rejects Taitz

I am finding this infighting among the birthers endlessly amusing. The Orange County News reports that Lucas Smith, one of the people who has come forward with a fake Kenyan birth certificate for Barack Obama, has now severed ties with Taitz and is claiming that she told him to lie in court. But first, the article describes both her ridiculous paranoia and ignorance of court procedures:

In a Santa Ana federal courtroom on Sept. 8, Dr. Orly Taitz had a clear message for Judge David O. Carter: Lucas Smith, a witness whom she had brought from the Dominican Republic that morning, had to testify that day–before it was too late.

“The biggest issue we have today is that evidence is disappearing,” said the Laguna Niguel dentist, lawyer and real-estate agent who is attempting to sue President Barack Obama out of office. “We have a number of parties that had evidence, that had knowledge that might be detrimental to the defense, that were found dead. . . . We have the most important, the most crucial witness. We have to be able to work something that they [the U.S. attorney representing Obama] can hear what he says, that you can hear what he says, that there is a record of it. . . . If, God forbid, something happens to this witness, at least we will have his testimony here.”

Carter didn’t oblige. After all, Taitz’s lawsuit against Obama hadn’t even reached the discovery stage, and the defense had been given no notice that she planned to call a witness that day.

She wanted to call a witness on the merits during a pretrial hearing. Nice work, Orly! Of course, the fact that the judge didn’t let her makes him a treasonous commie. Now Smith – the guy who produced a Kenyan birth certificate that is so bad that even the Worldnutdaily dismissed it as an obvious forgery – doesn’t want anything to do with Taitz anymore and says she told him to lie:

But Taitz ended up being right about one thing: Smith, who says he obtained Obama’s original birth certificate in Kenya, likely won’t get another chance to testify in Santa Ana. A week after the hearing, he says he has cut ties with Taitz because she asked him to lie under oath, making him the latest in a string of “birthers” to publicly criticize the woman who has become the face of the movement.

“I finally told her to forget it, we’ll part ways,” Smith told the Weekly on Sept. 16. “I definitely do not want anything to do with this dentist/wannabe movie star.”

Smith, 29, first appeared in the birther world in June as eBay user “colmado_naranja.” He was holding an auction for an artifact he claimed to have found: Obama’s original birth certificate from Mombasa, Kenya. After opening and closing the auction a few times, Smith in late August posted a video on YouTube showing himself surrounded by black children and holding the purported birth certificate. Right-wing news site World Net Daily–the organization that has sponsored “Where’s the Birth Certificate?” billboards across the country, including one in Buena Park–pounced on the story, reporting that Smith has a criminal record that includes forgery and an attempt to sell his kidney, and calling the certificate “not a valid document.”

In early September, Smith fired back at World Net Daily with a series of YouTube videos before filing a declaration with Taitz’s Barnett v. Obama lawsuit, vouching for the authenticity of the Mombasa birth certificate and saying he had obtained it by paying off a military officer in Kenya. Taitz paid for Smith’s plane ticket from the Dominican Republic, picked him up and brought him to court on Sept. 8, where he believed he would be given a chance to speak. A week later, though, Smith posted a message on his YouTube channel: “Im sorry everyone but, [sic] I cannot work with Orly Taitz any longer. She wants me to lie under oath.”…

“I’m not going to discredit my own story for her lawsuit,” Smith said. “Let’s not fight lies with lies.”

His story was already discredited, of course. And he’s the second lying nutball to publicly disavow Taitz:

Smith’s accusations against Taitz came shortly after similar ones from Larry Sinclair, another key figure in the Obama conspiracy universe. In June 2008, Sinclair held a press conference at the National Press Club claiming he’d been lured into cocaine-fueled sex with Obama in a limo in 1999. He also has said he believes Obama had Donald Young, a Chicago choir conductor, killed. In an affidavit posted this month on Sinclair’s website, Sinclair says Taitz asked him to testify at her Sept. 8 hearing. He flew to Orange County from Florida, but the night before the hearing, Sinclair says, Taitz told him to testify he knew about three people who had been killed by Obama–a charge that Sinclair says isn’t true. The next day, he told her he wouldn’t testify and would be flying home.

It’s fun watching these slimeballs call each other names. I think they’re all correct.

    The truth about Obama’s birth certificate.

    http://www.factcheck.org/elections-2008/born_in_the_usa.html

    FactCheck.org: “In June, the Obama campaign released a digitally scanned image of his birth certificate to quell speculative charges that he might not be a natural-born citizen.”

    CORRECTION: The Obama campaign released a digitally scanned image of his birth certification, if they had released the birth certificate, there wouldn’t be all of the mystery, and a Natural Born Citizen would be President.

    FactCheck.org: “And recently, author Jerome Corsi, whose book attacks Obama, said in a TV interview that the birth certificate the campaign has is “fake.” ”

    CORRECTION for author Jerome Corsi: The birth “certification” displayed by FactCheck.org appears to be a “genuine” certification, but it is not the “certificate” which will prove Obama is a Natural Born Citizen. (Note: Later on the page Corsi is quoted in a transcribed interview, clarifying his remarks.)

    FactCheck.org: “We beg to differ. FactCheck.org staffers have now seen, touched, examined and photographed the original birth certificate.”

    CORRECTION: FactCheck.org staffers have not seen, touched, examined and photographed the original birth certificate, but they have only seen, touched, examined and photographed the original birth certification, containing data transcribed from the original certificate.

    NOTE: Since the Obama campaign, released the digitally scanned image of his birth certification, containing data transcribed from the original certificate, this proves the existence, of the original record under the control of the state government of Hawaii, making it possible for release of certified copies of the original record. By placing a document into the public domain, the related origination documents, become public property.

    FactCheck.org: “Update Nov. 1: The Associated Press quoted Chiyome Fukino as saying that both she and the registrar of vital statistics, Alvin Onaka, have personally verified that the health department holds Obama’s original birth certificate.”

    NOTE: Confirmation a document exists, now the legal battle to gain access.

    FactCheck.org: “Recently FactCheck representatives got a chance to spend some time with the birth certificate, and we can attest to the fact that it is real and three-dimensional and resides at the Obama headquarters in Chicago.”

    CORRECTION: Recently FactCheck representatives got a chance to spend some time with the birth certification, and we can attest to the fact that it is real and three-dimensional and resides at the Obama headquarters in Chicago, but it is not the original birth certificate we need to display on FactCheck.org. Mr. Obama, may we please see, touch, examine and photograph your original birth certificate?

    FactCheck.org: “We can assure readers that the certificate does bear a raised seal, and that it’s stamped on the back by Hawaii state registrar Alvin T. Onaka (who uses a signature stamp rather than signing individual birth certificates). We even brought home a few photographs.”

    CORRECTION: Since we have yet to see and examine the original certificate, sadly we cannot assure readers that the certificate exists or that it bears a raised seal, or that it’s stamped on the back. Mr. Obama, will you please release your original birth certificate?

    Don’y miss the action

    There is an ongoing effort to verify President Obama’s claim of a birth in Hawaii. You will want to go to http://naturalborncitizen.wordpress.com/ and scroll to the beginning to see the process.

    Now you may have seen a document displayed at FactCheck.org, claiming it is a “certificate”. Birth certificates are, or in 1961 where, the first and original form document used to record a live birth. FactCheck.org, is displaying a “certification”, that contains sparse data which has been transcribed from the original certificate.

    The “half-truth” is that FactCheck.org, did in fact handle a real and genuine document called a certification, but the other half of the truth is they never saw nor touched a birth certificate.

    The fact that this swindle or theft of the voter’s minds affected millions of gullible fools, has put the USA, into a perilous position. But, fortunately for Obama, is the adoration his voters have for him.

    OBTW—How did Obama’s name get on the ballot? Well, thank Nancy Pelosi, for individually signing and sending two different versions of the “certificate of nomination” to the 50 states, but only the document sent to Hawaii, declared the candidates met constitutional qualifications for POTUS.

    But wait, what about the Electoral College vote held in January 2009? Well per 3USC15, the President of the Senate, Dick Cheney, was supposed to call for objections, but he failed to do so.

    So, the good news is that We the People, now have standing in the Federal courts to challenge all of the government failures which allowed Obama to be POTUS.

    A pivotal day will be Monday October 5, 2009, in Santa Ana, CA, as Federal Court, Judge David O. Carter, decides to either dismiss KEYES v OBAMA, or proceed on the merits and grant We the People of the USA with discovery. Word of decision expected before 12 Noon PST. MSM is not expected to attend or report, but the blogs will. http://bit.ly/sl8pW

    Should Judge Carter deny motion to dismiss, expect defense to appeal.
