But that was back in early 1805 when Thomas Jefferson was president. This is 2010, 205 years later. Maybe it's time to try again - starting with Justice Samuel Alito.
A request to U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito by "birther" attorney Orly Taitz asking that $20,000 in sanctions against her be reversed was referred on Tuesday to the entire court.Crooks and Liars:
U.S. District Court Judge Clay Land imposed the sanctions last year after he warned her and then gave her a time limit to explain why he shouldn't fine her in the September 2009 case of Capt. Connie Rhodes, who questioned the legitimacy of Barack Obama's presidency.
Taitz appealed the sanctions to the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta. That court upheld the sanctions in March, and Taitz sent an application for stay to U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas on July 8. Thomas denied it a week later.
Taitz then refiled it with Alito on Aug. 4. That request was referred on Tuesday to the entire nine-member court, the Supreme Court's website states.
It's not like we didn't already know Alito was a reactionary hater, but this goes far beyond the pale. Orly Taitz is a half-wit publicity-seeking nutcase who has just been granted a piece of the Supreme Court's attention. I think we can safely assume Alito shares Taitz' agenda to delegitimize the President of the United States.But the poor lady is facing another hurdle.
On Monday, a lien was filed on all of Taitz's real property. Taitz said she wouldn't give the government the satisfaction of taking her property or potentially her law license, adding she would pay the fine.Back to the original question. By all means, let's impeach the hell out of Alito.
As of Wednesday, Taitz said on her website that she had raised $1,740 in donations.
