On October 23, 2013, at the Fourth District Court of Appeals at Santa Ana, California, Dr. Orly Taitz, Attorney, argued her appeal for the case, Orly Taitz vs. Barack Obama, Diane Feinstein and Elizabeth Emken.
Dr. Orly Taitz took the time to answer some questions regarding today's hearing.
Question: "What is your goal for the case, Orly Taitz vs. Barack Obama, Diane Feinstein and Elizabeth Emken?"
Dr. Taitz: "The goal is for the Court of Appeals to reinstate the case and to expose Barack Obama's use of the stolen Social Security Number of Harrison J. Bounel and also his use of fabricated ID's."
Question: "How do you feel about the appeal that you presented today?"
Dr. Taitz: "I hope that it will be granted. It was a panel of three judges, and I am hoping that they will uphold the U.S. Constitution and grant the appeal. In the past five years, there were forty-five attorneys and hundreds of plantiffs who have brought similar claims against Barack Obama, but judges dismissed the claims on technicalities such as jurisdiction or standing."
Question: "How do you view public support for your case at this point?"
Dr. Taitz: "There is great support of the public. There have been polls done which show that a third of Republicans and a quarter of the population in general question Barack Obama's ID's. On my website, orlytaitzesq.com, I posted a petition to the U.S. Congress to investigate Barack Obama's fabricated ID's, and over 55,000 U.S. citizens have signed the petition.
Also, there is a lot of interest in this case. If you go on my website, orlytaitzesq.com, you will find over 44 million visits."
Question: "How would you describe the progress of your court cases regarding claims of Obama's use of a stolen Security Security Number and fabricated ID's?"
Dr. Taitz: "I have currently two cases, Washington, DC and Maryland, where on the Freedom of Information Act, I am seeking release of the original application to the Social Security Number, 042-68-4425, which Barack Obama has been using.
When Barack Obama posted his tax returns on whitehouse.gov in 2010, he originally did not flatten the PDF file, so the full unredacted Social Security Number that he is using became available to the public. From the first moment it became available, it was suspicious because Obama was never a citizen of Connecticut. Later, it failed both E-verify and Social Security Number Verification Service, and it was traced to Harrison J Bounel who was born in 1890."
Question: "How would you stress the importance of today's case?"
Dr. Taitz: "In my appeal, I compared this case to Watergate, a case which involved obstruction of justice. Following Watergate, 30 people went to prison."
Question: "It seems that you devote much of your time to these court cases. What motivates you to work so hard on the cases?"
Dr. Taitz: "I was born and raised in the Communist Soviet Union and know first hand the bleakness of the totalitarian regime and depravation of the Constitutional rights. As Mr. Obama became U.S. president, I got deeply concerned about the fact that he refused to present any of his original vital records and the fact that the issues of Mr. Obama’s dual citizenship and split allegiance were not heard in any court of law yet. My mission is to bring these issues to light and have them heard on the merits."
