If you caught Orly Taitz's full strait-jacket meltdown on MSNBC with Dave Schuster and Tamron Hall you probably thought you'd seen it all.  Well...no you haven't.

What if I told you Phil Berg (of the East Coast Birfer Movement) was ...suing Orly Taitz along with.... wait for it.... Eva Braun!

I wish I could make this up... but I'm just not that talented.  So... be forewarned.  Put down the coffee, or whatever you have near your face, close the door, grab a seat and take your dramamine... asthmatics, keep an inhaler handy.

This is gonna be a doozie... Eva Braun partnering with Orly Taitz?   That's like having Jefferson Davis partnering with Harriet Tubmann.  Mel Brooks wouldn't have dreamt of such a thing.  You know this alliance didn't come easy and there's only one place it's going to go.  Crazy Town here we come! Don't bother looking for a snark tag... there's no snark tag ...

Now I don't want to make light of Phil's plight here.  He and his associates are suing this cast of miscreants:

individually and collectively, for their illegal acts against the Plaintiffs, their staff and their businesses.

As Jon Stewart would say.... "Do go onnnnnnnnnnnnn....."

First complaint?  They allege the defendants sent

Lisa Liberi’s Social Security number and personal data via e-mail in mass mailings, media groups, internationally and to 1000’s of undisclosed recipients, requesting the information to be posted on websites across the internet and have been harassing Plaintiff Lisa Liberi, Philip J. Berg, Esquire and the Law Offices of Philip J. Berg.

That's not so funny.  What else have they done?

Defendants James Sundquist and Rock Salt Publishing have sent mass e-mailing with Lisa Ostella’s home address, phone number and maiden name through the internet to an unknown number of undisclosed recipients slandering and harassing Lisa Ostella and her family.

I can see it now... "For a good time call....and be sure to use her maiden name if you want 'the special'!"  Seriously, why would they do that?  Well, actually they are claiming Orly and Friends:

filed falsified police and law enforcement reports against Lisa Ostella regarding supposed "hacking" of Defendant Orly Taitz, et al websites and PayPal accounts. Lisa Liberi and her husband were also accused of "hacking" and tampering with Defendant Orly Taitz’s website and PayPal accounts.

Whoah...I can't even count the number of felonies there.  Which raises a real interesting question.  As anyone who looks at Orly Taitz's site knows, you get a warning if you use IE that "This site may harm your computer."  Why? It has tracking software without any privacy policies.  Which is probably what led Phil and Friends to declare:

Defendants’ are well aware it is Orly Taitz, et al who has placed JS Kit software which is a "tracking" and "hacking" software on her Defend our Freedoms Foundation, Inc. websites and blogs in order to "track" and "hack" individuals and their computers who have visited her websites. Defendant Yosef Taitz has a server in Orly Taitz, et al and his home in order to complete their illegal activities.

Given Yosef is a software engineer this isn't the craziest thing I've heard.  You know what else isn't surprising?  This is not the first time Orly's been sued. She attracts lawsuits like Axe body wash attracts women.

Think I'm kidding?

Don't Look...

Wow.  Fraud, Assault and Battery, after awhile the court just got tired I guess because they started filing "Misc Complaints - Other"... ok... maybe Orly is Yosef's attorney too.  Buy one ...get the other suit at a discount!

Ok... back to Phil and Friends...when we last left them, they were screaming libel, etc.  I'm not going to recount their claims for venue or parties, but I think it is important to note that the Plaintiffs make a big point of identifying themselves and the defendants as "adult individual[s]", no doubt worried someone might think this is a prank.  But it ain't.

Well... it certainly sounds like one though...
Here's the FACTUAL ALLEGATIONS

In or about November 2008, the name Orly Taitz appeared as filing legal complaints in Sacramento, California on behalf of Alan Keyes and other Plaintiffs and against the California Secretary of State and other Defendants regarding the Barry Soetoro a/k/a Barack H. Obama citizenship issues.  Ironically, Taitz plagiarized the work of Philip J. Berg, his Assistant Lisa and his law practice, Law Offices of Philip J. Berg.

Ohhhhhh.... that's gotta hurt!  She plagiarized his work and now she's stealing all the air time! Man... that's gotta burn!  But what about little mr and miss "we're getting sued an awful lot" and their non-profit?

Orly Taitz set up the business name of Defend our Freedoms Foundation, Inc. as a non-profit Organization with a Federal Tax Identification number of 26-4328440. However, when you attempt to verify the Federal Tax Identification number it comes back invalid.

Ok... maybe they are sloppy.  Like when they set up their PayPal account and changed her email address from orly.taitz@gmail.com to orly.taitz@gmail.org, which doesn't exist.  So

Donations received were rejected by PayPal as the e-mail address was incorrect and no such e-mail address existed. Since the e-mail address did not exist, PayPal rejected the donations and sent them back to the contributors. Hence, the donations were not stolen or misdirected as Taitz claimed, which Taitz was well aware.

Why does this matter?  Well it turns out that after screwing up the Paypal account, little miss litigator pulled a Joe Lieberman and claimed someone "hacked" her account.. pointed the finger at Phil and Friends and ... in an amazing display of self-restraint

Despite the fact Taitz was well aware her websites and PayPal accounts had never been "hacked" or tampered with, on or about April 2, 2009, Taitz wrote to the U.S. Supreme Court Justices seeking help in an investigation regarding a criminal complaint she had filed with the Federal Bureau of Investigations regarding hacking into her websites and tampering of her PayPal accounts, and other things. Taitz sent this same letter to the Secret Service and other Governmental Law Enforcement Agencies.

Hoo...boy.....  when I worry about possible security breaches I know the Supreme Court is high on my list of people to contact.   Maybe it's just me, but I think Orly has a thing for Justice Roberts.  I mean, this is a woman who drove thousands of miles to talk to the guy.  If I did that to Jennifer Lopez, people would call me a stalker. Which is unfair!  I just wanted to talk!  We're soul mates! Marc Antony is so using her....  oh..sorry... I had an Orly moment there.  I'm better now, trust me.

Back to the food fight....

As a result of the false report made by Orly Taitz to the Federal Government, Ostella informed Taitz that she must clear up the false reports or Ostella was removing Taitz from her websites and server. Taitz refused to clear this matter up and refused to retract her falsified police reports. When Taitz refused to clear up this report, Ostella told Taitz she had to move her sites. Taitz asked Ostella to give her thirty [30] days so she would be able to find a new host.

Honestly, 30 days?  This is where my sympathy of Phil and Friends starts to wane.  Someone pulls that crap with me, they are lucky they get 30 minutes.  But hey, I'm a jerk... not like Marc Antony (J.Lo you know my love is true!) ...but I'm sure someone will agree with that.  Maybe that's why I have a rstraining order.  Or maybe... but enough about me.

Instead of Taitz locating a new server, she gave an interview to World Net Daily on April 4th, 2009 elaborating on her scheme to mislead the public and law into believing her websites and PayPal accounts were "hacked" and "sabotaged". Again, Taitz was well aware none of these events took place.

I know, I know, you're surprised aintchya?  We'll skip over the details of how the Internet works,etc.  Because after Orly has it out with her hosting buddy, she goes after Berg with a "Ceize and Desist" letter.  I kid you not!  The girl is so paranoid she doesn't trust her own spell checker!  Speaking of paranoid....

On or about April 12, 2009, Berg received an e-mail from Taitz stating he was to "Ceize and Desist" [sic] from using Taitz’s Quo Warranto, which Taitz claimed was sent to Berg inadvertently. In this same e-mail, Taitz made false allegations claiming his (Berg’s) Paralegal, Lisa Liberi had an extensive criminal record involving amongst other things identity theft. Taitz went on further in her e-mail to Berg that Liberi’s husband was currently on parole and he had set up two (2) accounts accepting credit cards on Berg’s "charitable foundation", again all of which was falsified and fabricated by Taitz. Taitz in her e-mail stated as an officer of the Court she was obligated to send the information to the "FBI", Attorney General of California and San Bernardino County District Attorney since Lisa Liberi had an eight [8] year conviction in San Bernardino County, California. Taitz in her e-mail informed Berg that she believed that Berg, as an Officer of the Court, as well and a former Assistant Attorney General of Pennsylvania, should join her in issuing a joint Complaint and demand for investigation from the authorities. Taitz then forwarded the e-mail addressed to Berg to an undisclosed number of recipients.

Wow.  Let's overlook the spelling problem, that's nothing compared to the other issues here.  I ain't gonna touch this crazy with a ten-foot pole, because I'm sure it's contagious.  Phil clearly is of the same opinion:

It should be noted, Berg does not have a charitable foundation website.

If you are following this you are probably wondering how the hell she got this far?  She's making claims about something he doesn't even have.   It's a good thing Taitz used a private investigator with "20 years of experience with Scotland Yard and 12 years of experience in US" ... of course she doesn't mention if that was experience as an investigator or an inmate.  Speaking of bumbling inspectors, this reminds me of the old Inspector Clouseau joke from The Pink Panther:

Clouseau:Does your dog bite?
Man:No.
Clouseau: Nice doggy...
[Dog growls and bites Clouseau as he tries to pet it.]
Clouseau: I thought you said your dog does not bite!
Man: I did.  He doesn't.  That's not my dog.

To add insult to injury.... it looks like Taitz doesn't even do her own work.  Turns out she hit Berg with a notice someone else wrote for another reason and tried to pass it off as her own.  

But that pales in comparison.... to this

Taitz claimed she received reports that some defamatory comments were made under alias usually used by Lisa Liberi, assistant for Attorney Philip J. Berg; Taitz insinuated Ostella was taking monies donated to her; Liberi had an extensive criminal record going back to 1990; Liberi, among other things, engaged in falsification of police reports, manipulation of credit bureau reports; counterfeiting of court documents; Liberi had Twenty-One Thousand [$21,000] Dollars per month in restitution; several sources confirmed that Liberi lives in NM; they confirmed her date of birth and appearance as matching the ones on file with the San Bernardino, CA district attorney; Liberi launched vicious attacks against Taitz and then states Liberi disagreed with her and this was the vicious attack.

But she didn't stop there!!!!

The list goes on. Dossier No. 6 by Taitz own admission was an open letter posted on the internet and forwarded to 26,000 outlets of US and international media.

I didn't know there were 26,000 media outlets!  But have no fear... she didn't stop there, either!!!!

In addition, Taitz sent this e-mail to an unknown number of undisclosed recipients asking them to post the information on their website. Again, included in this was Liberi’s full Social Security number that Taitz obtained without a permissible purpose from Defendants, Neil Sankey, The Sankey Firm and Sankey Investigations, Inc.

And like the Energizer Bunny on meth...she kept on going!!!!!

Moreover, Taitz sent this Dossier No. 6 to
Attorney General Eric Holder;
Solicitor General Elena Kagan;
Director of FBI Robert Mueller;
FBI Cyber Crime division, Orange County CA, Officer Nathan Le;
Director of Secret Service Mark Sullivan;
Chief of Security of the Supreme Court, Officer Christine Giaccio;
Chief Justice of the Supreme Court John Roberts; and
Legal Counsel to the Chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral Mullen, Captain Crawford.

Holy cow!!!! How does she maintain a dental practice you ask?  Who cares?  Would you want this woman working on your mouth?  Remember Marathon Man?  I can see her now, drill whirring, your head firmly in her assistant's graps and she is maniacally asking you over and over and over again...."Is it safe?"

At this point, I'm sure you are wondering..."What about Eva Braun?"  Good Question.  Turns out she is a defendant in the suit, but not a friend of Taitz.  She used to be a friend of Berg's!  Oh...and that Eva  Braun thing, that's just her screen name.  Her real name is Linda.  

Due to some unauthorized credit card charges by Geoff Staples, double billing and failure to maintain Berg’s website, in or about November 2008, Berg fired Geoff Staples as webmaster and hired another third party, Gail Fry, to take over the website.  Due to the expense involved, Linda was allowed to be a moderator.

Oh, this is going to end well.  

In or about the end of January 2009, Linda began causing the webmasters and administrators problems with Berg’s website. Linda was warned to calm down numerous times, however failed to comply. Linda felt she was in charge of Berg’s website and sent e-mails to the website moderators deterring anyone from contacting Berg, Berg’s assistant or the webmaster. Linda even stated she was in charge. As a result, Linda’s moderator status was removed. However, she was still capable of posting on the blogs at obamacrimes.com.

Remember what happened in Fatal Attraction when Michael Douglass spurned Glenn Close?  Well here comes the "bunny rabbit scene".  Oh and Geoff... aren't you thrilled to see you missed this train wreck?  I don't care how much money they owed you, buddy, you got off easy... check it out:

In or about early February 2009, Berg on behalf of Adams had all the Defendants herein served with a cease and desist in attempts to stop the Defendants from their illegal and dangerous behaviors against and towards Adams.

Linda did not take this well.  Phil...what were you thinking?  A nice Jewish boy hooks up with a girl whose screen name is Eva Braun?  How did you think this would end?

I am done with all the lies, false accusations, trashing and vicious crap that has been done to me since January by certain people around here. They tell me my services are no longer needed and I am not welcome here. I spent all these months doing nothing but working my butt off for Phil and this cause and I'm out. No explanations except for more lies told about me...and Phil won't even talk to me after over a 10 year friendship!! How's that one? Lisa wants the trolls to take over and everyone knows Phil jumps to her tune, or so she tells it.

I think we all saw this coming.  That explains what happened next.

As a result, Linda was completely banned. Before being banned, Linda took Berg’s blog database of e-mail addresses. After being banned, Linda sent the following e-mail out via her newwomensparty@aol.com e-mail address as a mass mailing on several different dates to hundreds of people including Berg’s Expert Witnesses, Berg’s supporters, attorney’s Berg works with on other cases, Berg’s contributors, Defendants Orly Taitz, Mr. & Mrs. Hale, etc.

Apparently, soon after writing this GBCW..

Maybe in a few days I will be able to talk about it,
but my stomach is churning tonight and I am heartbroken at
the betrayal of me after a 10 + year friendship was ended
tonight, where Phil was not even willing to listen to me or even
tell me what it is I am supposed to have done, this time. I will
try to make a more complete statement in a day or two.
I am certain that Barry Soetoro is not a US citizen, but we
need people with more integrity to pursue this cause.

Linda and Orly joined forces... and went after the woman who had bewitched Phil with a vengenance, a poor paralegal who worked for him, named Lisa Liberi. This is where the funny stops and crazy becomes dangerous.

Liberi had a confidential address as a result of her child and her being victims of domestic violence. The publication of Liberi’s personal identifying information by Taitz, Defend our Freedoms Foundation, Inc., Sankey, the Sankey Firm and Sankey Investigations, Inc. made sure anyone with internet had access to Liberi’s Social Security number, date of birth and where she resided, further placing Liberi, her son and husband in further danger.

This is starting to sound less like Keystone Kops and more like a Quentin Tarantino movie when you consider that Taitz, a Russian emigre to Israel dismissed the carnage of the 2006 war in Lebanon in an interview with a reporter for the Orange County Register, saying, "It is unfortunate that collateral damage happens, but it is necessary to exterminate terrorist groups like Hamas and Hezbollah."  You might dismiss that as hyperbole, but don't forget this is the same woman who also said, "When you allow somebody with allegiance to other nations to become president, that’s extremely dangerous. He can be the Trojan horse; he can be the Manchurian candidate."  

As we prepare to depart Crazy Town, you may be interested to know many residents think it is possible Obama could be a modern-day Manchurian Candidate, but back on planet Earth, we think it's a lot more likely that Orly is just plain Psycho.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
