It may be time to stand up to the long entrenched tyranny of sleeves.
Or something like that.
Attorney/dentist Orly Taitz — whose crusade against the legitimacy of President Barack Obama’s birth certificate earned her marginal fame in 2009 — appears to be at her wit’s end.
Responding to a fan’s post to her Web site, Taitz highlighted both her opinion of the U.S. government and her prowess with the English language, claiming that now is the time for citizens to “bare arms.”
She likely meant “bear” arms, as in, to carry, convey, deliver or fetch. But that’s beside the point.
Taitz’s full passage reads: “Seeing targeted destruction of our economy, our security, dissipation of American jobs, massive corruption in the Government, Congress Department of Justice and Judiciary, it might be time to start rallies and protests using our second amendment right to bare arms and organise in militias.”
To put that in a complete sentence: the de-facto leader of the birther movement wants armed people to organize against the government.
Unless she truly meant going sleeveless, Taitz is a little late to that party.
As though to make her December even worse, a longtime friend and so-called “law clerk” by the name of Charles Lincoln confessed his love for Taitz and accused her of “treachery” in a lengthy blog posted last week. The disbarred attorney tore into Taitz, who is married, for allegedly mishandling the conspiratorial legal filings against the president.
“Orly’s lack of judgment in the handling of our relationship exactly paralleled her lack of judgment in handling the constitutional eligibility litigation,” he wrote. “She needed me and probably still needs me in every possible way, but I don’t have her husband’s money and so she chose to DUMP me, to DUMP real love, for the illusion of piles of federal reserve notes and other credits, and she goes on with her reckless rage and fire.”
“Read the whole thing, and understand why I’ve been less concerned with Taitz than with the elected Republicans who have been willing to jump on board with this conspiracy,” quipped David Weigel in a post to The Washington Independent.
Earlier in December her appeal of the eligibility litigation was once again shot down by a U.S. district judge, who criticized Taitz for repeating the same arguments he had previously rejected. She was additionally fined $20,000 in October for repeated, frivolous court filings.
Trump impersonated a CNN anchor — and a US president — during epic meltdown at Texas speech
President Donald Trump offered multiple impersonations during a campaign rally in Dallas, Texas on Thursday.
Trump showed the crowd his impersonation of a president of the United States -- and a CNN anchor.
"No guns. No religion. No oil. No natural gas," Trump said. "Abraham Lincoln could not win Texas under those circumstances. Couldn’t do it."
In fact, Abraham Lincoln could not win Texas when he ran for president as the state refused to print any ballots with his name.
He then showed the audience two impersonations as part of his 87-minute speech.
"I used it to say, I can be more presidential. Look," Trump said, as he shuffled awkwardly on stage.
Maddow reveals Trump’s Ukraine scandal is also an attempt to ‘unblame’ Russia for 2016 interference
On MSNBC Thursday night, Rachel Maddow walked through an underreported aspect of the Ukraine scandal. When President Donald Trump dangled foreign aid in front of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, he was not just demanding he dig up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden — he was also demanding he help dig up information that would disprove the findings of former special counsel Robert Mueller in the Russia investigation.
"This scheme that the president and Giuliani were enacting using the three amigos, Gordon Sondland, Rick Perry, and [Kurt] Volker, who has already resigned, the scheme was to hold up a White House meeting for this foreign leader unless he coughed up stuff that Trump could use for his re-election effort against Joe Biden," said Maddow. "And in addition to that, interestingly, he needed help unblaming Russia for the 2016 election attack."

"I took a lot of heat, even from some of our congressmen, some of our senators," Trump admitted.
"But now they're all happy," he argued.
"I am happy with them," he added. "I am happy with them."
