Birther Connie Rhodes is an Army officer trying to get out of deployment to Iraq because she believes (or so she says) that Obama isn't eligible to be president. I say they need to throw her out with a dishonorable discharge. She's obviously mentally unstable. We can't have these types in the military. She could be a danger to her fellow soldiers. Birther Queen Orly Taitz is representing her and others, using this defense to get out of the military:
Taitz kept going back to Obama’s birth certificate. Twice she called Obama a “usurper.”
Land repeatedly pointed out it was a courtroom where the rule of law was all that mattered.
“Whenever I give you a minute, you go off on these talking points,” Land said.
“We have not seen Mr. Obama’s birth certificate,” Taitz responded.
“This is not a forum to lay ground work for a press conference,” Land said. “This is a court of law.”
In her final argument, Taitz asked Land why she had to prove a “Kenyan birth certificate” she submitted as evidence was authentic, yet her opponents didn’t have to prove Obama had an authentic United States birth certificate.
“Who has the burden of establishing that the president of the United States is not eligible to serve in his office?” Land asked Taitz.
The judge pointed out that burden fell on Rhodes because she sought the restraining order to stop her deployment.
Rhodes received her officer’s commission in March 2005, according to Monday’s testimony. It took two years for her to complete medical school at the University of Illinois. She went on active duty June 18, 2007, while doing her internships and residency at Army hospitals.
For the Army paying for her third and fourth years of medical school, Rhodes committed to serve two years’ active duty. That commitment started in July 2008. Ledger
