IS THE DECISION JUSTIFIED?
by Sharon Rondeau
(Nov. 1, 2012) — Atty. Orly Taitz has informed The Post & Email that Judge Sherry Reid’s decision resulting from the October 22 trial in the Marion County Superior Court in Indianapolis, IN is to vacate the trial and strike the testimony of two expert witnesses.
Taitz had been awaiting Judge Reid’s decision since Monday and said that the order can be appealed. Taitz has requested a copy of the court transcript but has not received it as of this writing.
Witnesses Paul Irey and Chito Papa had testified that the long-form birth certificate bearing Obama’s name which had been uploaded to the White House server on April 27, 2011 is a “computer-generated forgery,” agreeing with the conclusions of the Cold Case Posse in Maricopa County, AZ, which is continuing to investigate the questions surrounding Obama’s background and identity. Posse lead investigator Mike Zullo had declined to testify at the Indiana hearing on October 22, as had Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
At a previous hearing, Reid had stated that Taitz “had a strong case.”
A complaint has been filed against Reid with the Indiana Commission on Judicial Qualifications by an unrelated party to Taitz’s case.
“She said that she will retroactively vacate the trial and she will strike all the testimony of witnesses at the trial that she already allowed,” Taitz said.
When The Post & Email asked, “How can a judge do that?” Taitz responded, “Good question. She said that she made a mistake because the case related to the primary election. It’s appealable because it already happened, and we have an order date on the trial. I asked for the transcript, and they’re not responding,” Taitz said. “So even if she rules to strike, the testimony is there; it exists.”
Taitz explained that although the judge issued the ruling to vacate and strike, she is entitled to a transcript. “Paul Irey testified, and the judge said, ‘He has 57 years of experience; I will allow him to testify,'” Taitz said. “Somebody with 57 years of experience testified that Obama’s birth certificate is a forgery. If this judge had had any honor or integrity, she would have turned around to the attorney general and said, ‘Based on this information, that there is a serious crime being committed, I order you to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate this matter and prosecute it.’ But instead, she went back and struck the testimony…?”
When we asked Taitz what she believed was behind the judge’s ruling, she responded, “People can draw their own conclusions.”
