21 August - Tlgmedia has come out with a rather satrical look as to what the birthers really believe.
25 August - Talk about "discovery" and "uncovering the truth"!
Seems some birthers have decided that the way to answer their questions about Obama's birthplace is to see Obama's penis. The idea being that since Larry Sinclair said the Presidential Peen was uncut, and since most males in the US are or were routinely circumcised, that by Obama dropping trou, it will show he's uncut and therefore was NOT born in the United States.
Obviously they just want to see his Kenyan Long Form.......
20 August - Another YouTube parody, this asking for VP Biden's Birth Certificate.
25 August - Dr. Orly appears via audio on "The Young Turks". She had a bit of a meltdown towards the end.
She mentioned she supposedly has a woman who's a military doctor wanting to be part of a Cook--type lawsuit.
We will see if she's lying.
25 August - "Bartholomew's Notes on Religion" writes about Ron McRae, the "Bishop" behind the Sarah Obama interview.
"McRae is a self-proclaimed Anabaptist bishop and, as such, has felt it his calling to disrupt the lives of gays, Catholics, Mormons, Muslims, Jehovah’s Witnesses and whatever other among the citizenry he considers the future entree at the Almighty’s celestial barbecue come Judgment Day. He has been found with a sign and Bible and loud denunciations at such venues as the convention of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and the annual Rosary Rally in Johnstown. A former police officer from Houston, Texas, his earlier career gave him a keen eye for the line between protected dissent and prosecutable harassment. Thus, in his subsequent life as an evangelistic nuisance, he has always been able to win civil liberties cases against the police when they get fed up enough to cart him off to the hoosegow. "
And there's more!
"There’s also a toe-curling discussion of the significance of the early Christian teacher “Simeon that was called Niger”, who appears in Acts 13:1:
One of the Apostle Paul’s ordaining elders was black. They called him “Niger” (Acts 13:1), from which comes the words Nigerian, Niger, Negro, Neger and the infamous American word “nigger”. The word simply means “black”. It wasn’t the preacher’s name. His name was Simeon, but he was called “Niger”. They called him that. His Christian brothers called him that. God called him that (vs. 1), and wrote it down in the everlasting word of God. The word means “black”, like in the Latin “Niger” (pronounced “Neger” with a short e sound) and Spanish “negro”. In America the blacks and the whites use such terminology to divide. In the Bible and in the church of the Living God they used it to unite as one body in Christ Jesus. The church at Antioch had no racial prejudices, nor ecclesiastical boundaries though they maintained habitational boundaries (Acts 17:16), and adhered to the Biblical prohibition against mixing of the races, since the Bible calls such sin “fornication” (see Revelation 2:14/ c.f. Numbers 25:1/ 31:16).
The verses cited against “mixing of the races” in fact refer to stories in which foreign women led astray Israelite men into “idolatory”; the issue is not one of “race” but of religious purity. It is difficult to judge how far McRae pushes this doctrine of racial separation, although the church website also carries some articles which are password-protected for “members only”. The teaching does not appear in the extensive Articles of Faith section. It may or may not be a factor in his hatred for Obama, which is expounded on here at interminable length:
…in these last days, Government now forces upon us an unbearable injustice, and trampling of the Constitution of the United States, in thinking to force the people to accept a foreigner as the President of this Republic, ignoring the single most important qualification for the highest office in our land, that such a one, not just gain such “power by the consent of the governed”, but that he be naturally born amongst us as one of us. There has never been an alternative option to replace “a natural born citizen” as the President of these United States. The Constitution knows no such option. Howbeit, the Federal Courts have repeatedly refused the people’s right to challenge such unprecedented trampling and violation of what the Constitution clearly says, and to date refuses to require such an Imposter to prove his “natural born” citizenship…Yet in these last days, where Tyrants’ minds have “devised liberal things”, and uttered so much error before the Creator of all men, that the liberal, vile cacophony resounds throughout the land to drown out doubtful voices, whose only authority rests in the Document now being trampled under foot of Tyrants with the innocent blood of their citizens dripping from their hands…
Charming people Berg hangs around with.
26 August - Carl Swensson of the Fantasy Tiddlywinks League deposits another video on YouTube in response to his flaming bag of presententment
And then there's comments like this:
Great Video Carl & Chalice!!!
I sincerely believe that if Obama wants to stay in the United States and wants to work here, then he can pick Lettuce like the rest of the Illegals!!!
Cool CARL , There are many who support you !!
Folks.. OBAMA is an Immigrant!!
REMOVE THE USURPER!!
26 August - "Dangerous Minds" does a video on "Rev." James Manning, the PUMA birther known for calling Obama a "long-legged mack daddy". He ends up being called the "Black Glenn Beck"
"Meet the Hon. James David Manning, PhD, a minister and Internet broadcaster from the Harlem neighborhood of New York City who HATES President Barack “Hussein” Obama. I mean really hates him. Manning has called Obama a pimp, a “homo” crackhead and Hitler.
His favorite thing to call the President, however, is “the long-legged Mack Daddy.” Manning also hates Michelle Obama, has called her ugly, a slut and has even suggested she visit the same plastic surgeon as Michael Jackson. Manning’s Trinity of Hell is comprised of Obama, Oprah Winfrey and the Reverend Jeremiah Wright. It should probably come as no surprise that he’s been a guest on Sean Hannity’s Fox News and radio shows.
Manning is proud to call himself an extreme right winger and is beloved of birthers, survivalists, Obama haters, the NRA and other assorted wingnuts. On his five days a week, three hours per day talk show, which he co-produces with his wife, he does bizarre and extremely unfunny “mock interviews” with Fidel Castro, prays fervently for Bristol Palin and he even had “author” Lawrence W Sinclair (“Brother Lawrence” as Manning calls him) of Barack Obama & Larry Sinclair: Cocaine, Sex, Lies & Murder?infamy on as a guest.
Manning is nuttier than the proverbial fruitcake and there is no low he’s not tempted to reach for. Sound like anyone familiar? To my mind, Manning is the black Glenn Beck! Even more to the point, he’s like some weird, bizarro world hybrid of Beck and Uncle Ruckus from The Boondocks! I mean, wow, this guy shocked even me. I also laughed until I cried. Manning is so ridiculous that they need some new words to describe him, the old standbys just won’t do any more."
27 August - Internet Outhouse and anti-semite Andy Martin falls off the rails in a paranoid claim worthy of Dr. Orly, claiming that the Washington Post, operating under orders from "Barack Obama’s operatives", have stolen his Obama Conspiracy tapes!
"When I tell people in Illinois that the Washington media are corrupt, and are controlled by agents of Obama’s dirty tricks squads, they have a hard time digesting the enormous sleaziness in Washington. Well, now we have criminal activity in Maryland being used to harass my campaign in Illinois.
“Why? Because Mark Kirk and/or Barack Obama’s operatives or both are terrified I am going to win Obama’s former U. S. Senate seat and shut down his socialist regime; Kirk is just a stalking horse for Obama in the Republican Party.
“They have stolen my tapes in which I discuss Obama’s missing birth certificate and missing college records Martin said. “Someone is awfully interested in preventing those tapes from seeing the light of day. Now that everyone—everyone—is in court, a judge can sort out the facts and law. I am confident we can prevail"
Or, as is more likely, you'll add another state to your list of "courts lil' Andy Martin can't play in anymore".
27 August - Note to Rep. Lynn Jenkins (R - 2nd Congressional District, Kansas). Rallying the Conservative base is one thing. Calling the up-and-coming people the "Great White Hope" (especially when they're all White), tends to make you look like a racist idiot
27 August - Treating the whole thing with the seriousness it deserves, "The Onion" writes a satirical piece on the "Afterbirthers"
"In the continuing controversy surrounding the president's U.S. citizenship, a new fringe group informally known as "Afterbirthers" demanded Monday the authentication of Barack Obama's placenta from his time inside his mother's womb. "All we are asking is that the president produce a sample of his fetal membranes and vessels—preferably along with a photo of the crowning and delivery—and this will all be over," said former presidential candidate and Afterbirthers spokesman Alan Keyes, later adding that his organization would be willing to settle for a half-liter of maternal cord plasma. "To this day, the American people have not seen a cervical mucus plug, let alone one that has been signed and notarized by a state-certified Hawaiian health official. If the president was indeed born in the manner in which he claims, then where is his gestation sac?" Keyes said that if Obama did not soon produce at least a bloody bedsheet from his conception, Afterbirthers would push forward with efforts to exhume the president's deceased mother and inspect the corpse's pelvic bone and birth canal."
28 August - "Fired Up Missouri" reports on Dr. Orly's "law clerk", disbarred felon Charles Lincoln.
"Reason No. 4,123 why Representatives Tim Jones and Cynthia Davis should be embarrassed for actively participating in a federal birther lawsuit against President Obama: One of the "law clerks" working for them on the case (as recently as last week) is a felon who has been disbarred in California, Florida and Texas.
Ironically, he has a record of falsifying documents and misrepresenting his identity.
This weekend when House Republicans meet to select their next batch of legislative leaders, perhaps aspiring Floor Leader Rep. Jones can explain why his involvement in this enormous waste of taxpayer money should not disqualify him from a promotion."
28 August - Here's an interesting article from the "Post and eMail", interviewing a friend of Barack Obama, Sr., about the Sarah Obama interview.
Two things stuck out:
"MR. OMOLO: I have taken a very keen interest and have carefully listened to the interview. The voice is truly of the of Mama Sarah Hussein Obama, although her interpreter was not doing a perfect job in correctly translating her words into English. The interviewing Bishop, too was wrong for having offered to bring Mama Sarah a copy of the Bible, and yet Mama Sarah is professing Muslim faith. He perhaps irritated her towards the end of the interview. The Bishop, again, appears to have some preconceived ideas that Barack Obama jnr, the US President, was born in the Kenya’s coastal City of Mombasa, as some mischievous writings (claim), which have appeared in the US. papers and websites.
Take from me. I was born on July 21,1937 whereas Barrack Obama Snr was born a year ealier in 1936, but because of my huge stature, we were almost of the same size. I knew all his background pretty well. His son who is 44th US President was born in Hawaii and not Kenya, and whoever is saying he was born in Mombasa is making fraudulent claims for some unclear motives only known to himself. Do not shy away from asking me more (questions). OK?"
"MR. OMOLO: Sir, the family of the late Hussein Onytango Obama are devout Muslims and so is the family of Sarah Obama. Half of the sons of the late Mr. Abdo Omari, Sarah’s father, live at Kendu-Bay, while half of the family members are living in Mombasa, a Swahili coastal town whose inhabitant are the Muslim.
It was her husband, Hussein Onyango Obama, who received the telegram message from his son Barrack Obama snr, from Hawaii, announcing the birth of a bouncing baby son, who Barrack was found of calling “the Big Bull”, and who is the now US President. In turn, Hussein Onyango called his wife Sarah in Mombasa and to break the good news from Hawaii in the US. And that is how Sarah came to know about the new baby.
Barrak Obama had no money for the airfare of his family (to bring them) from Hawaii, in the United States, to Kenya, at the material time. Due to that acute shortage of funds, he befriended Ruth, a primary (school) teacher near Havard University when he attended the College for his master’s degree studies. The reason why: Ruth was working and had the money the two of them could use when socializing around. And this also became the source of his divorce with Ann Dunham, the late mother of Barrack Obama, now the US President. The news got leaked to Ann that Barrack was semi co-habiting or frequently seen in the company of Ruth, and that is their divorce came about.
In this context, you now know that Barrack Obama snr, could not have been in Kenya nor his late wife Ann. All of them were in the US. I hope this now clarifies the mischievous report of Barrak Obama Jnr being born in Mombasa, which is to my knowledge is a far fetched story hatched by some invisible enemies to derail his election victory, and which must now be discarded by all sane persons and be treated with the contempt it deserves. "
28 August - It looks like Rep. Trent Franks was about to go to Birtherstan BEFORE the election . The reason?
"...quite frankly, I was terrified of this guy"
According to this post Rep. Franks made at RedState:
(Bold face mine)
“The ironic part about this is I was one of the few Members of Congress that was willing, if I could come up with a way to prove that Barack Obama was not born in this country, I was willing to go into a lawsuit. I don’t know of any other Member of Congress who was willing to do that, because I wanted to make sure that we were protecting both the Constitution and, quite frankly, I was terrified of this guy. But I wanted to do it in a way that comported with the honest evidence that I have in front of me. And so we did all kinds of research. We found all kinds of conflicting research. And we had to say, ‘Okay, I’m going to divorce myself from politics and I’m going to look at the evidence for what it is, and see what we come up with.’ And one of the things that happened, about three days before we were going to launch a lawsuit, is that we found several different newspapers that had shown that Barack Obama was born in Hawaii two years after it became a state. Now, there was no way to have forged that…I just don’t have evidence that shows me that he was not born here. Now, I know that everybody says that they’ve got it, but I’ve never seen it.”
He continues with:
“…the fact that we found [the evidence that Pres. Obama is a natural-born, American citizen] made it impossible for me in good conscience to go into a big lawsuit.”
So no, it doesn't look like Rep. Franks went down to Birtherstan after all.
28 August - Well, looks like we found out about the lawsuit Dr. Orly hinted at on the Young Turks.
In a filing that is pretty much a find/replace from her earlier Cook v Good lawsuit in Georgia, Dr. Orly files a request for a Temporary Restraining Order against Secretary of Defense Gates and President Obama, on behalf of Dr. Connie Rhodes, Captain, US Army.
Dr. Rhodes is scheduled to report on 30 August to Ft. Sam Houston in Texas for deployment. The TRO request starts with:
"Plaintiff Captain Dr. Connie Rhodes has received what appear to be facially valid orders mobilizing her to active duty with the United States Army in Iraq on September 5th, 2009 (Exhibit A). Captain Rhodes is both a US army officer and a medical doctor, a flight surgeon. On May 15th of this year 501 brigade out of Fort Campbell, KY, currently stationed in Iraq, has requested a support of medical personal in Iraq. Two days ago, August the 23rd, an order was given through the chain of command via e-mail for Captain Rhodes to arrive in San Antonio TX, Fort Sam Houston for Tactical Combat Medical Care Course (TCMC) to be held from August 30th till September 4t and next day, on September the 5th to arrive in Fort Benning in Columbus GA for immediate deployment to Iraq for a period of one year and twelve days from September 5th, 2009 until September 17th 2010. Captain Dr. Connie Rhodes wants to serve her country and fulfill her tour of duty, however as a US army officer and a medical doctor she has severe reservations regarding legitimacy of Barack Obama as the Commander in Chief and repercussions of her service under his orders, particularly in light of mounting evidence of him having allegiance to other Nations and citizenship of Kenya, Indonesia and Great Britain."
The request is signed 25 August 2009, filed on 28 August 2009 in United States District Court for the Western District of Texas, San Antonio Division. Though it is such a cut and past job from the Cook case that the filing EVEN SAYS "United States District Court, Middle District of Georgia, Columbus Division" on it.
Not to mention Dr. Orly hasn't changed the "hes" to "shes" either.
See for yourself:
(Scribd link here)
And how did the courts respond? Same day denial:
(Scribd link here)
The main difference with this case and the Cook case is that Cook signed up as one of Dr. Orly's plaintiffs, THEN volunteered, THEN filed the lawsuit AFTER he was given the deployment he volunteered for. Dr. Rhodes, however, is an involuntary deployee, and at this point, she's facing either having to deploy or refusing deployment orders.
And I suspect it's a safe guess her military career is post toasties. For that matter, her medical career might be as well depending on how much legal crap she lands in.
That's what she gets for taking the Taitz express all the way to Birtherstan though.
29 August - Dr. Orly seems to have *finally* deloused her site, as the malware warnings aren't showing up anymore. However, just because the bugs in her site have been removed doesn't mean the bugs in her brain have as well. Case in point, she gets her nose out of joint over someone daring to post the following message:
Great job, Orly! You are fantastic!
Now that the TRO has been denied, are you going to represent her at the court martial? Where will the court martial be? Is Dr. Rhodes ready, willing and able to relinquish her medical license for the cause?
What a patriot!
Great job, Orly! You are fantastic! Now that the TRO has been denied, are you going to represent her at the court martial? Where will the court martial be? Is Dr. Rhodes ready, willing and able to relinquish her medical license for the cause? What a patriot!
Friends of Orly"
That's a pretty valid concern, as Dr. Orly's LAST military client managed to end up both with his military career pooched AND out of work on the civilian side as well. And if Dr. Rhodes does end up in front of a courts-martial, she might find it difficult to get licenced as a doctor in most states. However, Dr. Orly goes off the handle at someone DARING to point this out.
(Bold face mine)
"Does anyone know who this jerk is? I traced his IP to Malibu CA and this bothers me. Until now Obama’s thugs were traced to WA state, VA, BC and TX. Now they are in Malibu, 1 hour drive or 5 minutes private plane flight from my house. This person also goes by the name Methuselah. Does it ring a bell? Methuselah, Brendan Forage or IP 184.108.40.206? I think that obot Mary Adams or Mary Adamson live in Malibu too. I think the street is Francisco rd. It can be a woman hiding behind the name Brendan Forage or a group of people or one of organizations set by the US hater George Soros or some radical Muslim group run by this nutcase Khalid Al Mansur of supported by prince al Whaleed. Mary Adams belonged to one of those groups. Please scan obot postings on other blogs, I need more info on these nutcases"
So, when Dr. Orly runs out of toilet paper, does she blame "Obots"? When someone glares at her at the supermarket, is it some plant from George Soros?? When her hands slip in a patients mouth and she's looking at yet another malpractice lawsuit, is it some Muslim plot??
29 August - Terry Krepel of ConWebWatch comments in The Huffington Post, on the cozy relationship between Dr. Orly and World Nut Daily
"WND has enabled Taitz by uncritically reporting her anti-Obama legal actions without noting factual errors in them. For instance, WND articles on July 11, July 14, July 15, and July 20 repeated Taitz's suggestion that in order to qualify as a "natural born citizen" under the constitutional requirement to hold the presidency, both parents must be American citizens; that would disqualify Obama because his father was not an American citizen. But has WND eventually admitted, there are "arguments over just exactly what is a 'natural born' citizen" and "a consensus on the correct definition of 'natural born citizen' has eluded lawyers and scholars for more than 200 years."
WND has also directly collaborated with Taitz -- a violation of journalistic ethics by working so closely with people you're supposed to be merely reporting on. WND supplied Taitz with copies of names signed to its online petition "demanding that the constitutional eligibility requirement be taken seriously" so that she could present them to Chief Justice John Roberts, even though WND has not otherwise made the petition public. WND editor Joseph Farah has also squired Taitz around Washington.
Farah has responded in kind by fluffing Taitz, asserting that "this lady is rapidly becoming one of my heroes" and adding that "I'm ready to give her any support she needs to adjudicate this issue." WND has also published a slobbering sycophantic profile of Taitz, portraying her as "the fierce blond attorney behind Obama eligibility lawsuits, a successful dentist with two offices, a second-degree black belt and a mother of three boys who speaks five languages." Taitz even plays a role in WND's video purporting to offer "the straight facts" on the birth certificate issue.
Because WND and Taitz are so close, WND has neglected to tell its readers about Taitz's questionable legal work and the questions even Taitz's fellow travelers in the birther movement have raised about her."
And ends with this charmer:
"WND has long disregarded facts when it comes to Obama, and there's little to show that it will act any differently now -- even toward someone like Orly Taitz, who has demonstrated an unmistakable level of incompetence and a willingness to be even more reckless and irresponsible than WND."
30 August - Dr. Orly takes time from posting paranoid delusions about Obama and the Obots leaving swine flu in her toothpaste, to reposting paranoid delusions about Muslim and the "destruction of Europe"
"Arriving at a time of demographic, political, and cultural weakness, Muslims are profoundly changing Europe. “Islam has youth and will, Europe has age and welfare.” Put differently, “Pre-modern Islam beats post-modern Christianity.” Much of the Western world, Mr. Steyn flat-out predicts, “will not survive the twenty-first century, and much of it will effectively disappear within our lifetimes, including many if not most European countries.” With even more drama, he adds that “it’s the end of the world as we know it.”
And ends with:
"Big question: When Muslims rule the Earth, will they be capable to build civilization? Or will their rule only be one of numbers"
Just in case you forgot that with Dr. Orly, it really IS all about the Muslim-hate.
30 August - Dr. Orly wants her Cavity Creeps to donate cars, furniture, etc., to help her latest "helper". And oy vey is she delusional:
"Another attorney and legal strategy consultant is coming from out of state to help me with Keyes, Rhodes, appeal of Cook and other cases."
Hmmm, is Charles Lincoln coming out from Texas??
"He will probably stay here for a few months until we win in court and a legitimate president is chosen in a special election."
So he's going to be staying there until hell freezes over in other words??
"He will need to settle in the house that is currently empty. If you are within driving distance from Mission Viejo CA and have some items that you can donate to help this attorney get settled, please let me know. Big part of the work is done by him pro bono. Do you have an old car in drivable condition, that he can use? Furniture, household items, food supplies, anything that might be needed in the house."
Translation" "My new assistant has no resources on his own, and I'm too cheap to pay him. However, my legal skills are such crap I need any help I can get. He's staying elsewhere because I can't afford to have him surfing my couch until 2016"
30 August - David-Crockett, one of Dr. Orly's stanchest zampolits and propaganda outlets, dares to confront the Wrath of Orly by publically daring to suggest to the Nitrous Queen that her association with disbarred felon Charles Lincoln might not be in her best interests.
Of course, he's got to make smacky noises on her tushy first.
"As you well may know I have always been one of your staunchest supporters and believed in your dedication and patriotism. Still I believe that you have in yourself to be The Lady Liberty who can be instrumental in Taking America Back for our children and grandchildren for generations to come. One nation under God built on the foundations laid out in our Constitution inspired and bestowed on us by our Savior."
Umm, you do know Dr. Orly is Jewish, right?
"Unfortunately however it is my strong impression that certain things are not as they seemed and serious questions have arisen in regards to alliances and orientation which now are causing some serious cracks in our ranks that will be exploited by the conspirators of tyranny and usurpation in order to get away with establishing the rule of no other than Satan"
So, pointing out that Dr. Orly is ethically challenged and has the legal skills of a Fisher-Price toy is somehow "establishing the rule of no other than Satan", eh??
"it is a battle which we can and may not loose as it is for our survival as a free and Christian nation."
Again, you DO know Dr. Orly is Jewish, right??
"Both myself and a large number of outstanding patriots placed all their trust in you and have been praying for you to overcome."
The words "Foolish" and "misguided" come to mind.
"Fort that reason I and many others are deeply saddened about a number of inconsistencies in respect to both the legal approach as to alliances the latter for example in respect to Charles Lincoln who has a proven criminal track record"
Funny, I thought being a disbarred felon who's up to his eyebrows in mortgage scams and tax evasion made him a PERFECT fit for the Birtherstani.
"..and who seems to have a detrimental influence on your often times failure to understand and/or apply the rudimentary rules of law."
Got news for you lil Davy-Crockett. Dr. Orly has had a complete failure to understand and/or apply the rudimentary rules of law FROM DAY ONE. The fact she's got another scam artist working as her law clerk doesn't change that fact.
"The fact that obviously the Connie Rhodes motion was a straight copy of the Maj. Cook motion without it even been proofread ( the he was a she) shows a very serious lack of preciseness that directly caused it to be denied."
And the fact that it was a steaming load of crap didn't help it any.
"Whatever I would urge you to get rid of Charles Lincoln as having a convicted criminal as assistant and ally further damages your and our cause and gives credence to attacks by our enemies and by that furthers the cause of the criminal conspirators of tyranny and usurpation that are destructing our Constitutional Republic in order to establish a satanic One World Government."
Lil' Davy-Crockett, have you taken a GOOD hard look at the people on your side?? Lincoln fits right in!
"Forgive me for being this straight and direct, I have no choice as it is the Country at stake which doesn’t allow me to be considerate and diplomatic. Therefore I call on you to answer to this open letter and hopefully straighten things out."
Translation: "Oh forgive me Great and Mighty Lady Liberty that I, your humble slave, no more than the dust on the hem of your pantsuit, might dare to point out to your Glorious self that your use of the foul Satanic criminal Lincoln might be a bit unwise in Our Quest to Achieve Our Glorious People's Victory Against the foul Usurper!"
