TERMS LAND’S ORDER A POLITICAL LYNCHING DESIGNED TO CREATE CLIMATE OF THREAT AGAINST ATTORNEYS NATIONWIDE
by John Charlton
(Oct. 20, 2009) — Attorney Orly Taitz, esq., filed a Notice of Appeal today in Federal Court, Middle District, Columbus Division, Georgia, regarding Judge Clay D. Land’s notorious sanction order of Oct. 13. Judge Land had sanctioned Taitz $20,000 for her just defense of Captain Connie Rhodes in the case Rhodes vs. MacDonald.
In her notice, Dr. Taitz details the injustice of Land’s order:
Ordinarily, counsel admits that it would have been prudent if not required to seek relief from these sanctions by the filing of a motion under Rule 59 to preserve or perfect error in the trial court regarding the manifest errors of law and fact which the court made in its last entered order contained in Document #28. However, the undersigned counsel submits to the United States Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit that this Court’s (Judge Clay D. Land’s) refusal to grant either of her last motions, while doubling its unreasonable assessment of sanctions against her from $10,000 to $20,000 rendered such a “normal” course of litigation conduct both futile and potentially self-destructive. Judge Land’s actions that amounted to misstating or misrepresenting ninety percent of what was presented in the pleadings and argument, completely ignoring ninety percent of the argument and facts, making extremely rude and demeaning remarks, showing bias; taken together, appear to be designed to silence her and, intimidate her and above all, punish her for what the Court perceived as political rather than “core” constitutional questions. It appears to be a thinly veiled threat to other attorneys not to pursue similar Constitutional issues, which will have a chilling effect on the ability of the public to use Federal Court system to uphold their constitutional rights. Judge Land’s remarks amounted to nothing short of political lynching, which turned into feast and celebration by the media mob. Accordingly, the undersigned counsel submits that she reasonably feared that filing any further motions might lead to the imposition of further sanctions by this particular Judge and Court. Judge Land might well have increased the sanctions amount from $20K to $40K or even $100K, all without specifying any real violations of Rule 11, even if such further filings were merely to show the undersigned counsel’s status as an attorney working pro bono without compensation, or to point out how the U.S. District Court had misconstrued some of the key precedents it cited in this case, including but not limited to Mindes, 453 F.2d 197 (5th Cir. 1971). — (Formating in the original).
Then Attorney Taitz describes what she will aim to prove when she files her appeal shortly:
On Appeal, the undersigned counsel will also seek to show how this Court’s orders determining the questions of “standing”, “injury in fact”, “political disputes”, and “abstention” were not only manifestly incorrect, but showed a failure to review the Plaintiff’s initial filings in this case, so that the filings in this case were in NO sense frivolous. Aside from a general constitutional issue of members of the military being forced to violate their oath to uphold the Constitution, the undersigned has provided evidence that the members of the military are forced to violate their oath while following orders of Mr. Obama, as the Commander in Chief, who never provided any legal documents proving his eligibility for office as a Natural Born Citizen, while coming from HI, which allows one to get a birth certificate based on a statement of one relative only, without any corroborative evidence. The undersigned has provided an affidavit from a forensic document expert Sandra Ramsey Lines, stating that Obama’s 2007 Certification of Life Birth cannot be considered genuine without seeing the original on file in HI. Moreover, the undersigned has provided an affidavit from a licensed private investigator, showing 39 different social security numbers used by Mr. Obama, including at least one social security number of a deceased individual. Among those were several numbers connected to addresses in GA: Alpharetta, Atlanta and in Judge Land’s own district, his own backyard 505 Farr C, Columbus GA (ss#420-67-2965, ss# 423-29-2961). This evidence was not only sufficient not to subject the undersigned to sanctions and to grant further discovery, if the court thought that the evidence is not sufficient for trial, but it also should’ve been a sufficient concern for the National Security of this Nation for Judge Land to forward the complaint, exhibits and transcripts to FBI, police, DA, Atty. Gen of GA and US Atty. for criminal investigation and prosecution of Mr. Obama for massive fraud, social security fraud, public corruption and other charges that might be warranted at the end of the investigation.
In closing, Taitz addresses the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals and asks them to intervene:
The undersigned is hopeful that this honorable court, 11 Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta, Ga will show concern for the National Security of this Nation, as well as adherence to the Constitution and not only will reverse the order of sanctions, but will sua sponte forward this matter for further investigation to proper authorities or will remand the case to the District court to allow the undersigned to conduct necessary discovery to prove that the case was not frivolous and Rule 11 sanctions were not warranted.
In this appeal, the undersigned counsel will address the critical questions omitted by the court, to show that the Court appears never even to have considered, much less addressed or ruled upon, the original Plaintiff’s key question of whether an officer’s obedience to her constitutional oath is NOT nothing more than a political claim which does not give rise to a case or controversy to be heard in federal court.
Readers should note, that A Notice of Appeal is filed in the court against which the appeal is to be made, so that that court (Land’s) might know that an appeal is to be filed with the Circuit Court of Appeals which has jurisdiction over it.
Attorney Taitz is actively fundraising the $20,000 necessary to pay Land’s sanction, through her website.
