ORLY TAITZ PROVIDES AN UPDATE
by Sharon Rondeau
(Apr. 20, 2011) — The Post & Email was able to speak with Dr. Orly Taitz regarding possible reasons for Arizona Governor Janice Brewer’s vetoing of the bill passed by the legislature earlier this week.
Dr. Taitz said that the Speaker of the House cut short the legislative session by two days, ending it on Tuesday instead of on Thursday, April 21, 2011. She stated that because of that, “the legislature has no time to override her veto. That’s why the only thing that can be done is calling an emergency session. But again, who’s going to call it? Brewer is not going to call an emergency session to override her own veto.”
Taitz then explained the petition launched since the veto to recall Gov. Brewer, stating that the citizens of Arizona are “outraged” over the decision. She said that there is a group of people who are requesting a meeting with Brewer to give her an opportunity to “make things right.” Taitz said, “If there is something in the bill that’s a problem, we want to know, and this can be amended. If she has a problem with the additional alternative records that can be provided by people who do not have a birth certificate, we can remove that provision, and the only thing we would then have is the original, long-form birth certificate. So let’s just do it. If there’s something that’s bothering her, we can remove it. We are asking her to reconsider her veto.”
Taitz said that Brewer seemed to have interpreted the provision for alternative documentation for those lacking a long-form birth certificate as “a requirement.” Taitz believes that Brewer violated her oath of office by vetoing the bill, “defying her own legislators. People need to continue pounding her.”
Dr. Taitz stated that the group seeking an audience with Brewer would give her a chance to reconsider her veto; “otherwise, we’ll proceed with the recall.” In Arizona, any public official is subject to recall with the signatures of 25% of the number of votes cast in the last election.
While we were speaking with Dr. Taitz, she received a phone call which concluded that Brewer needed to receive a request to meet with her in written form.
In 2009, Governor Brewer called an emergency session of the legislature “to address the state budget, multipurpose districts, a payment to the Science Foundation and a legislative fix related to a regular session bill on foreclosures.” She reportedly called a “fifth” special session to discuss Arizona’s budget deficit in December 2009.
The Post & Email asked Dr. Taitz if she believed that the bill had been sabotaged, to which she replied, “Oh, no question! There was sabotage non-stop; we had sabotage everywhere. We know that people are being intimidated and harassed; all kinds of things are done to keep this puppet in power. It is convenient for our oligarchy because, thanks to this puppet, trillions of dollars are flowing out of the U.S. Treasury out of the pockets of U.S. citizens in all kinds of directions. This is the destruction of the U.S. economy. For this kind of money, for trillions of dollars, they can harass anybody, they can intimidate anybody; a lot of things can be done. And that’s why it’s so dangerous.”
In 2004, then-California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger was asked to reconsider his veto of a gun violence education bill.
An opinion issued by the Washington State Attorney General addressed the following question regarding a gubernatorial veto posed by a Washington state senator:
When an act passed by the legislature is vetoed by the governor under article 3, section 12 of the state constitution, and is returned with his objections to the secretary of state as is provided for therein, is the power of the legislature to override the veto dependent upon that power being exercised before adjournment of the very next session of the legislature subsequent to the veto action, including a special session called for some purpose or purposes other than consideration of the vetoed bill in question?
The answer referred to Article 3, Section 7 the Washington state constitution.
In April 2010, the Arizona legislature passed, and Governor Brewer signed, a comprehensive bill aimed to reduce illegal immigration in the state. In response, Barack Hussein Obama and Eric Holder filed a lawsuit against the state of Arizona and Governor Brewer.
However, the Ninth Circuit allowed 11 foreign countries to sue Arizona, along with Obama and his regime’s Justice Department. One blogger stated:
These 11 nations and the Obama Administration are waging war against the people of the United States. The absurdity of it all is that the Constitution of the United States requires the federal government to keep its borders secure. Obama and Holder have tacitly joined forces with 11 foreign powers to wage war against one of the 50 States. Holder’s action against Arizona cracked open the door through which millions of illegal aliens have entered this nation, for those 11 nations to challenge a sovereign State’s right to protect its citizens from their citizens who enter this nation illegally solely because our hemispheric neighbors want our borders open to them (althought they want their borders closed to us).
At that time, Brewer said, “What’s even more offensive is that this effort has been supported by the U.S. Department of Justice. American sovereignty begins in the U.S. Constitution and at the border,” she added. “I am confident the 9th Circuit will do the right thing and recognize foreign interference in U.S. legal proceedings and allow the State of Arizona to respond to their brief.”
The case was initially heard by a federal judge, Susan Bolton, whom the Obama regime had stated should not render a decision on Arizona’s counter-suit, labeling illegal immigration a “political” matter.
However, Bolton heard the case and issued an opinion that parts of the bill were unconstitutional.
The U.S. Constitution sets forth that when a state is a party to a disagreement, the U.S. Supreme Court has original jurisdiction. Did a lack of knowledge of the Constitution lead the case to be heard by the wrong court? Did Governor Brewer know that?
Governor Brewer appealed to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which upheld Bolton’s ruling on April 11, 2011, stating, “”For those sympathetic to immigrants to the United States, it is a challenge and a chilling foretaste of what other states might attempt. For those burdened by unlawful immigration, it suggests how a state could tackle that problem. It is not our function, however, to evaluate the statute as a symbol. We are asked to assess the constitutionality.”
But is the question one of “sympathy?” Is the question not constitutionality?
Georgia is poised to pass a similar immigration law.
The Arizona constitution has a provision for treason, which reads:
Section 28. Treason against the state shall consist only in levying war against the state, or adhering to its enemies, or in giving them aid or comfort. No person shall be convicted of treason unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or confession in open court.
By suing a sovereign state and allowing foreign governments to join the lawsuit, did Obama and Holder not commit treason against Arizona? Instead of charging him with treason, Governor Brewer has met with Obama.
- On November 30, 2007, in the state of Arizona, Obama declared himself a “natural born Citizen,” knowing that he was not and admitting as much on his campaign website.
- On March 10, 2009, Obama allowed U.S. Army troops to deploy in Samson, AL, in violation of the Posse Comitatus Act.
- Obama installed himself as chairman of the United Nations Security Council, the “first-ever” such occurrence, aware that Libyan dictator Muommar Gaddafi was “entitled to attend the nuclear summit session that Mr Obama will chair.” Obama’s self-appointment was a violation of his oath of office to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
Since that time, Obama ordered the bombing of Libya despite receiving no threat from that country.
- The Obama regime has refused to protect the U.S. border from illegal activity including the murder of American citizens by Mexicans and other invaders, and then prosecuted Arizona for taking on the responsibility of protecting its citizens.
