A quick dispatches today (since I DO have a life and career outside of what the birtherstani are up to now, *laugh*)
Dr. Orly files an amended complaint with information that may be....well, illegal. And it looks like she got them from Greg Hollister of Hollister v 'Soetoro' infamy. Dr. Kate is getting more bitter and racist as the days continue. We have a parody that I KNOW some birther is going to believe anyway.
Theresa Cao has a spokesperson with ties to convicted forger and felon Lucas Smith. Michelle Bachmann starts out her presidential bid with some birtherstanis. and "One Pissed Off Vietnam Vet" needs to go back to debate school.
24 March - Dr. Orly submits a "First Amended Complaint" in her FOIA suit against the SSA. (malware and redirect warning)
"FIRST AMENDED COMPLAINT SUBMITTED TODAY IN DC. NEWLY UNCOVERED DOCUMENTS SHOW THAT OBAMA WAS DEFRAUDING THE NATION RE HIS COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY RECORDS, HE WAS THERE ONLY 9 MONTHS, MORE EVIDENCE OF SOCIAL SECURITY FRAUD BY OBAMA
Posted on | March 24, 2011"
Seems like more of the usual database dreck she babbles about, in addition to the use of another database system, National Student Clearinghouse. However, there's two pieces of "evidence" she submits thats......interesting
The first is a Selective Service confirmation letter to "Barack Hussein Obama", with a redacted address.
The second is a screen shot from the SSN verification system (SSNVS)
The SSNVS one is interesting, since it seems to violate the restrictions on using that system. You have to create a business account to use it, and this is the agreement you have to agree to to in order to use it.
"I understand that the Social Security Administration (SSA) will validate the information I provide against the information in SSA's files. I certify that: * I understand that I may be subject to penalties if I submit fraudulent information. * I understand that SSA may prevent me from using these services if SSA determines or suspects there has been misuse of the services. * I am aware that any person who knowingly and willingly makes any representation to falsely obtain information from Social Security records and/or intends to deceive the Social Security Administration as to the true identity of an individual could be punished by a fine or imprisonment, or both. * I am authorized to do business under this User ID. By checking the box below you certify that you have read, understand and agree to the user certification of Business Services Online. "
So either Dr. Orly OR whoever got this for her has violated said agreement.
However, the first one is even more interesting, because it looks to be a letter that is supposed to be sent to the person who registered. Which makes me wonder how Dr. Orly got it. Particularly since misuse of that system is a federal offense....
24 March - "Linda Starr" babbles about Dr. Orly's latest legal dumpling, quoting this part from it:
"...Further records from the Student Clearing House show even more shocking evidence. In his memoirs and multiple speeches Obama wrote that he studied for two years at Columbia University September 1981-May 1983. He admitted that in summer of 1981 he traveled to Pakistan to visit his friends, but repeatedly claimed that from September 1981 until May of 1983 he resided in New York and studied at Columbia University. Taitz ran a check of his years of attendance at Columbia university and found out that Columbia official records show him attending Columbia university only for nine months September 1982-till May 1983 (Exhibit 3), which means that the President of the United States lied to the whole nation about his whereabouts for a whole year September 1981 until September 1982. One year absence is the best case scenario, as he could get his university credit by reciprocity or through extern studies.
28. As there is no record of Obama residing anywhere else in the United States from September 1981-September 1982, or attending any other university, by way of simple deduction it becomes clear that his visit to Pakistan lasted not a month or two, as he claims, but over a year.
29. In 1981-1982 Pakistan was ruled by a ruthless radical Muslim leader general Zia Ul Hac, who came to power as a result of a military coup, announced himself as a Chief Martial Law Administrator and ruled the country via the system of iron fist terror. Supreme court of Pakistan, apparently afraid for their lives found such rule to be acceptable due to a “necessity” doctrine. Based on verification of Columbia university records, Taitz found that Obama spent at least a year within the regime of general Zia Ul Hac. This revelation adds urgency in processing this complaint, as it shows that we have today an individual usurping the position of the President of the United States and Commander-in-Chief of the whole US military, while using a stolen social security number, not possessing a valid long form U.S. birth certificate and defrauding the nation and concealing a whole year of his whereabouts."
The problem is that Dr. Orly didn't get these records from Columbia, but from "National Student Clearinghouse"
1) NSC states that:
"Terms and Conditions of Use
No reproduction, distribution, or transmission of the copyrighted materials at this site is permitted without the written permission of the National Student Clearinghouse."
2) NSC also says:
"Information We Collect
The Clearinghouse collects and stores only the information that you knowingly provide to us using our Web sites’ registration form(s), including but not limited to: your name, business address, business phone, e-mail, job title, and job function. We may request additional information if you order a product or service, request information, or participate in a survey or contest via one of our Web site(s). Additionally, your Internet domain, IP address, and session usage information (which does not identify you personally) may be used to help us improve the content and performance of our Web site(s). Your sole option, if you do not wish to provide all requested information, is to not participate in a Clearinghouse Web site."
3) NSC states this about privacy:
The Clearinghouse has maintained the confidentiality and privacy of records covering more than 110 million students since its inception. We are scrupulous in our concern for student privacy and compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), which protects students' privacy rights in their education records.
We require certification from all verification requestors that the student or alumnus has given permission for his/her academic information to be released. Requestors also agree not to re-release degree data to third parties (unless the requestor is a background screening firm releasing data to their employer client).
The Clearinghouse only releases directory information that confirms an individual's degrees and academic credentials. We do not confirm addresses or the accuracy of Social Security Numbers provided by requestors. To further ensure security and privacy, we maintain an audit trail of requestors' identities, including Internet Protocol Addresses (IP address), credit card numbers, and telephone numbers."
So either Dr. Orly or one of her cavity creeps may have violated NSC's policies, and said data is dependent on what the student and school wish to release anyway.
Once again, the birthers "smoking gun" turns out to be a leaky water pistol.
24 March - Don't you just love it when Dr. Kate's racism comes out into the open for a bit?
(Bold face mine)
"Obama’s illegality in these actions will be judged in part by whether his ‘consultation’ was sufficient within the meaning of the WPR and the Constitution.
It would be typical of Congress to give Obama a ‘affirmative action pass’, if it weren’t for the fact that Hillary Clinton, Robert Gates, and the Joint Chiefs of Staff have been derelict in their duties as well, conspiring against America and the rule of law.
And hello? Did you forget that it is OUR PEOPLE you are sending into war??
Since Obama is illegally occupying the White House, and has a foreign agenda, his actions mark one more confrontation with
Congress the institutions of our Republic.
Congress, you’ve got the golden opportunity to remove this man now! Its right there on a silver platter."
An "affirmative action" pass, eh?? She's not even trying to hide the racism anymore.
24 March - "Newsflavor" takes a (parody) trip into conspiracy land.
"The world waited with baited breath for the 44th president of the United States of America to act on the Libyan crisis. Pundits loyal to this usurping president – who was born outside the US of A, has a forged birth certificate and a secret mosque beneath the White House (you heard it here first) – will say this procrastination was due to heartfelt worries about murdering innocent men, women and (worst still) children. The White House Insider tells another tale.
Michelle Obama’s Problem
The truth is that the secret Muslim president was actually delayed in coming to a decision about Libya because of Michelle Obama’s problem. Big Bum Michelle, as she is referred to by Tea Bags who profess that they are no way racist but have never heard of misogyny, just could not decide. I mean, should the new color of the ceiling be white or should she introduce a different shade? Should the snot green walls be changed to a more healthy yellow?"
And the article ends with this amusing disclaimer:
"If you believe this or anything else in this article you must be very stupid or Sarah Palin"
While this article is parody, I can almost guarantee many birthers will believe it unquestioningly.
24 March - At the Pest and eFail, professional seditionist Sharon Rondeau reports that Theresa Cao has both a new spokesperson and an "ally".
"Cao has told The Post & Email that Mr. Sean Boyer will be acting as her spokesperson effective today. Boyer has recently arranged for Ms. Cao to appear on several recent internet radio programs."
Sean Boyer has been heard from before. He did a turn in 2009 as convicted felon and forger Lucas Smith's agent as well, according to World Nut Daily.
"Cao now has reported that she will be including the Kenyan birth certificate document, a copy of which was sent to all members of the 111th Congress last year, as an addendum to the Exhibits in her Motion to Dismiss relating to her case which arose from the January 6, 2011 reading of the U.S. Constitution by the House of Representatives."
So not only is she using Lucas Smith's former agent, but his fake birth certificate as well.
Somehow I doubt the court will be impressed by a document from a convicted forger and serial con man.
"Cao mentioned that Mr. Boyer has contacted Donald Trump, who recently called for Obama to release his birth certificate."
By "contacted" I suspect she means "left a message at one of his offices"
"Mr. Boyer, Cao’s new spokesperson, granted The Post & Email a detailed interview today which follows.
MRS. RONDEAU: How did you come to be involved with Lucas Smith and now Theresa Cao?
MR. BOYER: I contacted Lucas Smith over 21 months ago, almost two years ago, to bring out the birth certificate for potential authentication. I contacted him by email and told him that I would help represent him to media or to attorneys about whom we could decide might be able to help us. So after establishing a rapport with him, he agreed and authorized me to be his agent and to represent him on any number of issues regarding this.
Lucas put out a letter to 535 Congressmen and women informing them of the circumstances of how he obtained that document and also saying that he was willing to testify. He individually signed and addressed each of these letters. It wasn’t just a form letter; throughout the body of the letter, it referred to the particular congressman addressed.
Lucas did a monumental job, and you have to give him a lot of credit. There’s a patriot in the background who paid for all of that, and we have to appreciate, as Americans, the people who are working behind the scenes trying to help restore justice for our Constitution on this matter.
I have continued to work on and off with Lucas over all these months, giving him some advice and suggestions and making contacts for him. I made contacts with several attorneys who ultimately did not work out."
Which is funny, since on 19 July 2009, World Nut Daily reported that:
"Smith did then authorize a public relations agent to speak on his behalf and hire an attorney, but after several unsuccessful attempts to get Smith to offer any proof of the document's authenticity, the agent has since withdrawn his representation, fearing that the alleged birth certificate sale may have merely been a money-grabbing fraud."
"Smith's hesitancy to cooperate eventually cost him the support of his agent and lawyer, too.
"Smith has broken promise after promise to deliver on his claims," Boyer told WND.
"On Sunday, July 19, it had been five days without a response from Smith, after a number of attempts had been made to contact him by email and phone messages," Boyer said. "Smith may be stalling for time as he attempts to sell whatever he may have privately through contacts that he told me he was able to develop while advertizing on eBay. Consequently, [Smith's attorney] and I agreed to withdraw our representation of Smith, and he has been notified by email to that effect."
Looks like they kissed and made up I guess.
Oh, and look! The "ebil Obambi is hypnotising us" meme is back!
"MRS. RONDEAU: Why do you think Obama was chosen as the person to push this agenda?
MR. BOYER: He has a resonance in his voice, he has a need for power, he has the vigor for the campaign trail and the itinerary, and he has the cadence, the mesmerizing cadence, no matter what he’s saying, that seems to somehow lull people into a complacency and a willingness to blindly follow him. These are actually brainwashing techniques. He does not say anything substantive."
24 March - And here's why the Selective Service verification letter is so....interesting.
"Raicha" at the Fogbow noticed thatDr. Orly failed to redact the barcode data on said form.
(Bold face mine)
"Taitz v. Astrue - FOIA action
by raicha » Yesterday, 16:01
Cross posting from the poopies thread:
Changed my mind. It is not a forgery. It is a duplicate sent out by the automated system. I called it myself. If you answer the prompts truthfully that you are seeking info on another person, the system will only confirm the registration verbally, give you the number and the date of registration.
If you reply that you are seeking your own info, you also get the option to have documentation mailed to you. At that point, the system tells you when the last update to your record occurred and tells you to press "0" if you want to change your mailing address.
The system told me that this record was changed on 12/7/2010. So someone accessed the system, changed the address, and had this record sent to them under false pretenses.
The un-redacted zip code tracks back to a neighborhood just outside the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs.
I believe someone has tampered with an official government record, and it ain't President Obama."
I think it's safe to assume that President Obama doesn't live in Colorado Springs. And "Raicha" finds out who does.....
"Taitz v. Astrue - FOIA action
by raicha » Yesterday, 19:13
...Orly forgot to redact the bar code for the zip code where the registration confirmation was sent. This is the bar code above the President's name on the jpg Orly posted, not the code below it.
The bar code is a POSTNET code. To read more about the code and how to crack it, go here: http://zone.ni.com/devzone/cda/tut/p/id/5027
Deciphered, the bar code breaks down to:
Five digit zip: 80908 - this is in Colorado Springs, according to the United States Postal Service
+Plus 4, identifies the neighborhood: 3034.
Googling that neighborhood: 80908-3034, gives you several addresses in the 6700 block of Connaught Drive in Colorado Springs
The last three digits of the POSTNET code are 302, which are a delivery point (30) and a check digit. Typically, the identifier, in this case 30, identifies the specific street number in the neighborhood.
This then identifies the house number: 6730
Google 6730 Connaught Drive, and a public property record pops up for Gregory Hollister."
Yes, Gregory Hollister. Of "Hollister v 'Soetoro'" infamy.
"Note: I did not access any public or private databases to find this information. I didn't impersonate anyone. All I did was decode the delivery address and pop it into Google.
But then: I called the Selective Service and confirmed that this record was modified on December 7, 2010 by someone. Someone who then came into possession of a document that is only sent to the registrant, by law?
Hmm indeed. Did Greg Hollister break the law, and did Dr. Orly submit into court "evidence" that was illegally obtained? Enquiring minds want to know. As, I suspect, does the FBI, Secret Service, and other governmental law enforcement.....
24 March - "Raicha" is on "Reality Check Radio" discussing what they found out that Greg Hollister "may have illegally impersonated President Obama to obtain a copy of Obama's Selective Service record."
25 March - "Gratewire" has a thread about Hollister and Dr. Orly's little excursion into lawbreaking.
"Col. Greg Hollister, USAF (Ret.) contacted the Selective Service, falsely impersonated President Obama, improperly registered his own address as President Obama's address, and by this false impersonation and identity theft he managed to obtain a duplicate registration acknowledgement card with President Obama's Selective Service information on it.
This may violate several federal criminal statutes, and apparently caused the federal record of President Obama's address with the Selective Service to be altered to show that he lives in Colorado Springs, CO.
Hollister then sent the stolen draft card to Orly Taitz, who filed it in federal court."
25 March - And it turns out that on 23 March, "Dr. Conspiracy" pointed out the ways Hollister broke the law in using the SSNVS as well.
"What’s wrong with this picture? Simply stated, what Hollister claims to have done is a crime:
Anyone who knowingly and willfully uses SSNVS to request or obtain information from SSA under false pretenses violates Federal law and may be punished by a fine, imprisonment or both.
The only lawful use of this system is “…solely to ensure that the records of current or former employees are correct for the purpose of completing Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Form W-2 (Wage and Tax Statement).” And don’t think for a minute that Mr. Hollister is going to get away with claiming that Barack Obama is his employee. It was against court rules for Orly Taitz to broadcast the President’s Social Security number in the first place, just as it apparently is against the law to use SSNVS to verify it."
25 March - And who does Michelle Bachmann hire at the start for her planned run for President?? A birther.
"Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) has previously said that if she ran for president, the "first thing" she'd do at the first debate would be to present her birth certificate. Not that she would have much of a choice, if the state lawmaker she's expected to hire to manage her operations in Iowa has his way. Bachmann, who has all-but announced she's running, is reportedly planning to bring on Iowa state Sen. Kent Sorenson—the author of a recent birther bill—as her political director in the presidential bellwether state.
Introduced in early March, Sorenson's bill, SB 368, would require "birth certificates to be filed with affidavits of candidacy for presidential and vice presidential candidates." The legislation, which died in committee, was one of more than a dozen similar pieces of legislation that have been filed since the start of 2009, arising from the conservative conspiracy theory that President Obama was born in Kenya and is therefore not eligible for office. (The President was born in Hawaii and has released a birth certificate, which you can view here). Sorenson has not commented publicly about the legislation and could not be reached for comment."
25 March - And the Pest and eFail publishes another rant by "One Pissed-off Vietnam Vet"
"I’ve got this theory, and it goes like this: When you’re born, each person is given a certain amount of, well, let’s call it, for want of a better term, ‘either.’ At one time it was the ‘either’ that permitted radio waves, but for our discussion, we’re using the word ‘either’ to represent a fixed amount of anything.
Actually, I came across this idea after I quit drinking. "
"The first thing one learns in debating class is to never attack a person, just the person’s conclusions. For example, if you don’t like the message, kill the messenger. Alright, kill the messenger, why don’t you? So what? The message is still the same. Today’s prime example is that of the non-existent birth certificate. There is no birth certificate, so what’s with this “birther” name-calling? Calling someone a birther doesn’t address the birth certificate question. Actually, there is a birth certificate and it’s from Kenya. End of name-calling."
Actually one of the first things one learns in debate is "checking one's facts" and "not leaping to false conclusions". On one hand, you have a legitimate document from the State of Hawaii, and on the other hand, two fake "Kenyan" birth certificates, one an admitted forgery to punk the birthers, and the the other from a convicted felon, con man, and forger.
In a debate, the facts usually win, especially when the claims are dubious at best.
The funny thing here is that it's the birthers who do most of the name calling. And what happens when someone dares to go onto some place like the Pest and eFail or Dr. Kate's cesspool and confront them with the truth? They "kill the messenger" - or at least censor their message and dismiss the truth outright.
"The fight for the truth has been fought a thousand times yet must be fought for the thousand and first. There is no other way. The cowards, the bullies, cheats and lying politicians will not, cannot, survive in the light of truth."
Which is why I and other debunkers do our level best to shine the light of truth on the cowards, bullies, cheats, and lying politicians in the birther movement.
25 March - Reality Check Radio Blog also comments on Hollister.
"Good Authority has it that both incidents have been reported to the appropriate agencies. These incidents lead to several questions:
1. Did Hollister act on behalf of Taitz to obtain these documents?
2. Is Taitz culpable by including these illegally obtain documents in a Federal court filing? (Which she conveniently copied to USAG Eric Holder!)
3. Why did he redact his address and EIN number if he didn't know he was doing something "sneaky"?
4. Did the SSA provide President Obama with a new social security number after his number was published by Taitz? That could explain why the SSVNS returned a code showing the number was not used.
5. What laws were broken when Hollister or someone else obtained this information?"
