WASHINGTON — The US Supreme Court refused Monday to take up the question of President Barack Obama's citizenship, which a core group of skeptics continues to challenge despite presentation of his US birth certificate.Yes, mainly rightwing protesters.
The high court, without comment, rejected the request by Orly Taitz, a California lawyer who has emerged as a leader of the "birther" movement of mainly rightwing protesters who question where Obama was born.
On Monday Taitz said she would not let the case rest.Who gave her the evidence? Did they supply long-form evidence?
"I will file a motion for reconsideration," she said on her website, adding that she has "evidence of highly suspicious activity in several federal courts."
"If we don't clean up corruption in the judiciary, in the White House, citizens of this country will have no trust in the system and will take justice in their own hands. This is dangerous," she wrote.
A somewhat surprising strategy caught here:
And if that motion is denied, "I will go to an international court," she says. "I will be filing a proper complaint with the Committee of the Judiciary with the U.S. House.”Ummm...
