In today's dispatches, Donald Trump and his undead scalp weasel continues to be the Great White Hope of the birtherstani, despite the media actually pointing out where he's full of dingo droppings. Greg Hollister's little violation of federal law is starting to get noted by the media as well.
Dr. Kate is fast losing any coherence, as her writings have become pure hate-filled spew of consciousness. The funny thing is she's doing this while the founder of a philosophy she teaches is trying to work for healing and peace. Leonard Pitts comments on Trumps birtherdom. And Keyes/Barnett v Obama is scheduled for (very short) oral arguments in May.
28 March - CBS News comments on Donald Trump's birtherism.
"Trump's comments conflict with reality in a number of ways. For starters, he seems to suggest that Mr. Obama has not put out his certificate of live birth, the document provided by the state of Hawaii when a birth certificate is requested. Yet Mr. Obama's campaign released a copy of his birth certificate in 2008, and it has been publicly available ever since.
Experts have also verified the authenticity of Mr. Obama's birth certificate, and disputes over his citizenship have been thoroughly debunked by a number of experts and journalists. Like many birthers, Trump has apparently chosen to simply disregard the overwhelming evidence that Mr. Obama was born in the United States, including newspaper announcements of his birth. "
And some familiar birtherstani appear in comments:
"by borderhawk March 30, 2011 1:06 AM EDT
Anyone who believes Obama is eligible a fool, and is putting the US Constitution in the fire. But, it's ok with me if you are younger than me and stupid. You'll need good civil war or revolution to dissolve the constitution and write a new one. Enjoy the war, Bosnia did, Afghanistan is, Libya is, etc...."
29 March - The Colorado Springs Gazette covers Gregory Hollister's possible illegal use of government databases.
"A Colorado Springs “birther,” retired Air Force Col. Gregory Hollister, has Internet blogs abuzz with what may be an illegal foray into an online Social Security data base and how he obtained a copy of President Barack Obama’s draft registration from 1980.
“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,” a blogger posted on gratewire.com last week. “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 said Tuesday a private investigator, Susan Daniels of Ohio, gave him what is purported to be the president’s Social Security number. He then accessed the Social Security Number Verification Service to find out to whom it was issued and to access Selective Service documents.
The site allows registered users to verify names and Social Security numbers for employment purposes and warns that using it under false pretenses is a violation of federal law."
Here's one bit of strangeness to it:
"Hollister denied breaking any laws.
“I was very meticulous and made sure everything I did was compliant with the law,” Hollister said, noting that he sent Obama an 1099 tax form.
A 1099 is an IRS income reporting form for independent contractors and free-lancers. Hollister did not explain how sending that to Obama complies with federal laws on the use of Social Security data."
I think what he's trying to do is claim Obama is a "freelance contractor" working for Hollister, therefore Hollister had the right to look in SSVS. As a legal argument, I suspect it will work as well as his previous case's legal arguments - in other words a major fail.
Some of the comments are...well....
7:26 PM on March 29, 2011
Those who are saying that we birthers aren't quite right, going to be very devastated when God Almighty puts his hand on Obama's life and story: ALL about Barack Hussein Soetoro Obama, because he was there with Obama, knowing what Obama did, has the POWER to reveal it. The Bible says "Nothing is Hidden From the LORD (Hebrews 4:12-16) For the word of God ... until the Lord comes, who will both bring to light the hidden things of..."
I'm afraid, like in P.G. County, MD, friends will STILL stand by the GUILTY--Ms. Jackson, FORMER PROSECUTING JUDGE was found with$79,800.00 in her bra as her husband asked her to do so on the phone (conversation recorded!!) and flushing the $100,000.00 check down the commode (flushing recorded) and STILL PLEADED NOT GUILTY!!! Well, Obama is no different! He's pleading NOT GUILTY by not showing all his records!! I believe Mr. Donald Trump has both the interest and the monies to make this issue come to an end!!! What a Blessing!! In Christ Jesus, Nell"
Did that make sense to anyone who didn't pour Captain Morgan over their Cap'n Crunch this morning?
29 March - Dr. Kate's latest rant is so venom-filled as to be pretty much incoherent. It's like she just needed enough article to hold together all the bile and lies she spews.
"Drugged up and reliant on his teleprompter, Obama the usurper failed once again to give any indication he knows WTF is going on, what his responsibilities are, and what our Country is about.
In his measly speech attempting to justify his war on Libya–having failed to secure the requisite authority ahead of time– the only thing Obama made clear is that he is declaring war on the United States, our Constitution, and our institutions."
Though the comments go a bit beyond such.
(Bold face mine)
March 30, 2011 at 3:19 am
Right now obama is a wounded animal. This speech (if you can call it that) is a perfect example.
Most of his own party is now questioning his decisions.
He is taking big heat from the right.
We are smacking him right in the face and more evidence we dig up the better.
The only ones listening to him are his handlers, Jarrett & NWO.
So now is the time to really watch him because he is the most dangerous.
Y’all know what happens when you corner a wounded dog….
He will either bite you or you put a bullet in it’s head."
And today's visit from the Secret Service goes to.....
March 30, 2011 at 7:00 am
...Obama is a no class vapid empty suit of narcissism and arrogance wrapped up in demonic evil. He is the disgrace and embarrassment that has brought a red stain on our land for which We The People must remove."
Make that two visits.
March 30, 2011 at 9:04 am
...In my 67 years there has never, Never, NEVER been such a time of so many overt acts of Treason, Bribery and other High Crimes and Misdemeanors. It is indeed called Barack HUSSEIN [MUSLIM] Obama/Barry [INDONESIAN & ISLAMIC] Soetoro.
God Bless, Save and Keep America
God Damn, Remove and Get Rid Of Obama"
30 March - The conspiracy site "Four Winds 10" has an appeal for prayer from Dr. Masuru Emoto.
"Please send your prayers of love and gratitude to water at the nuclear plants in Fukushima, Japan!
By the massive earthquakes of Magnitude 9 and surreal massive tsunamis, more than 10,000 people are still missing…even now… It has been 16 days already since the disaster happened. What makes it worse is that water at the reactors of Fukushima Nuclear Plants started to leak, and it’s contaminating the ocean, air and water molecule of surrounding areas.
Human wisdom has not been able to do much to solve the problem, but we are only trying to cool down the anger of radioactive materials in the reactors by discharging water to them.
Is there really nothing else to do?
I think there is. During over twenty year research of hado measuring and water crystal photographic technology, I have been witnessing that water can turn positive when it receives pure vibration of human prayer no matter how far away it is.
Energy formula of Albert Einstein, E=MC2 really means that Energy = number of people and the square of people’s consciousness.
Now is the time to understand the true meaning. Let us all join the prayer ceremony as fellow citizens of the planet earth. I would like to ask all people, not just in Japan, but all around the world to please help us to find a way out the crisis of this planet!!"
HADO is a New Age belief that water has memory and that thoughts and actions can have an affect on the "crystals" in the water. The reason I bring this up is that HADO USA has a list of HADO instructors in this country.
"Dr. Kate Vandemoer
I wonder how Dr. Emoto, much less most of the other HADO practitioners, feel about the bile, hatred, racism, lies, bigotry, and venom that Dr. Kate spews forth on a daily basis?
30 March - Leonard Pitts comments on Donald Trump's birtherism.
"Donald Trump doesn't like "birthers." He calls the word "unfair" to people who don't believe President Obama was born in the USA.
Very well, then. If not birthers, how about if we call them "morons"? How about "jackasses," "imbeciles," "idiots" or "doofuses?" How about "pinheads" -- or would that require a royalty to Bill O'Reilly?
I'm sorry, dear reader. Forgive me. Generally speaking, I am not much for name calling."
*Chuckle* Don't hold back on my account.
"In recent days, Trump, the reality show impresario and human punch line who's been threatening to run for president, has added himself to their number.
For that, he drew a sharp rebuke from Whoopi Goldberg on "The View." When, she demanded, has any white president ever been asked to show his birth certificate?
Let the church say amen. So it is time to call this birther nonsense what it is -- not just claptrap, but profoundly racist claptrap."
I think the word "duh" comes to mind here.
"Frankly, I wish Trump and his fellow birthers would just go ahead and call Obama an N-word. Yes, it would be reprehensible and offensive.
But it would be a damn sight more honest, too."
Oh, I suspect they do all the time. It's waiting until one of them slips up and says it pubically that's the key.
30 March - Remember the PUMA site "Hillary is 44"?? The one that felt the need to creatively edit Hillary Clinton's 2008 DNC speech?
Well, it shouldn't come as no surprise that they're also on the Donald Trump bandwagon.
"For years Big Media has pretended not to know the difference between a Birth Certificate and a Certificate of Live Birth. "
Actually it's the birthers who seem to have problems understanding it. Most rational people know there isn't a difference.
"Haberman lies when she says the Barack Obama Birth Certificate story has been “debunked”. Haberman and Ben Smith, the Politico Protectors, pretend to be stupid in order to deceive their readers and protect Barack Obama. Both of them know better but instead choose to attack Donald Trump instead of joining him and demanding to see the source document – the Birth Certificate."
Well, a PUMA knows all about lying, but the simple fact is that the birthers have been debunked since the summer of 2008, and all of their stomping of feet and screaming rage won't change that fact.
30 March - The Denver Channel also reports on Hollister.
"Hollister said the Social Security number on what he says is Obama’s draft registration begins with the numbers 042, which would be issued to someone born in Connecticut, not Hawaii.
Hollister and others birthers claim Obama was born in either Kenya or Indonesia and that his birth certificate showing he was born in Honolulu in 1961 is a forgery. The Constitution requires that the president of the United States be a natural born citizen.
Hollister has challenged in a lawsuit that Obama is not an American citizen. The U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear that suit on Jan. 18.
Hollister could face charges of identity theft and fraud."
30 March - And the CEL3 v the Family Taitz lawsuit comes to a sudden conclusion.
"03/30/2011 93[RECAP] ORDER Granting Voluntary Dismissal without Prejudice, by Judge Andrew J. Guilford (Made JS-6. Case Terminated.) (twdb) (Entered: 03/30/2011)"
(Scribd link here)
"Under Rule 41(a)(2), if Rule 41(a)(1) doesn't apply, an action "may be dismissed at the plaintiffs request ... by court order, on terms that the court considers proper." Plaintiff has sufficiently requested voluntary dismissal in his Letter for purposes of Rule 41 (a)(2). The Court finds it proper to dismiss this case without prejudice and with leave to file the claims in state court. This Court makes no findings about the viability of any claims.
The Court DISMISSES the case without prejudice."
Attached as "Exhibit A" is CEL3's letter to the court asking for the dismissal.
"On March 23, 2011, this Court entered its order (Document 80), to the relevant portions of which my counsel Mr. Berg had immediately agreed on or about February 28, 2011, that all parties should submit "pre-filing" letters to the Court directly prior to filing any motion or application with the Clerk. As I understand it, not having been present on that day, Mr. Berg was the only attorney present at that hearing to agree in court, on the spot, to your suggestion.
If your Honor had entered such an order immediately, it would have slowed the rate and volume of filings in this case substantially. Instead, your Honor denied Philip J. Berg's application to appear pro hac vice and ordered, that all deadlines should stay the same. I hope your honor will infer no disrespect, because I have worked in the chambers of two Federal Judges, known and studied under many others, and have only the highest regard for the dignity of your office, but did your Honor really believe it in any sense practical, just, or fair to deny the Plaintiffs counsel admission pro hac vice and at the same time order me to meet all previously set deadlines? Is this combination of actions not analogous to cutting off a man's feet and then telling him to run a marathon? Especially in the context of this case where at least one of the Defendants seems to have unlimited time to file unlimited content-free motions, etc.?"
So basically "dismiss my case because the judge is being a big ol' meanie to me" then?
"You said in open that I, as Plaintiff, have also filed "frivolous" motions and I would like to ask your Honor to identify for me what you consider to be my "frivolous" filings?"
Can we start with "your entire legal record" and add from there?
"It is for these reasons that I am writing to ask you for leave to file a Supplemental and Amended Motion to Extend, Continue, or Suspend deadlines to include (1) today's due date for response to the Defendants' Motion to Dismiss submitted March 19,2011, (2) the due date for initial disclosures, (3) all other responses and filing deadlines, until after April 15, 2011, on which date I will, with your Honor's permission, file a Motion for Leave to File Second Amended Complaint together with my Second Amended Complaint. .
In the alternative, I suggest that this Court dismiss my Complaint WITHOUT prejudice, WITH leave to refile all or part of the same in any California Superior Court of appropriate jurisdiction. This would be a reasonable compromise between the parties."
And the judge goes "DONE! GET THE HELL OUT OF MY COURTROOM NOW!!!"
30 March - An update in the appeal of Keyes/Barnett v Obama (malware and redirect warning)
"I CAN’T BELIEVE IT, BUT AFTER 2 YEARS OF OBAMA LITIGATION, FOR THE FIRST TIME THE COURT OF APPEALS SCHEDULED ORAL ARGUMENT IN OBAMA CASE. MAY 2, 9AM, 9TH CIRCUIT COURT OF APPEALS, PASADENA DIVISION, COURTROOM 1. THIS IS JUDGE CARTER CASE, WHERE I REPRESENT AMBASSADOR ALAN KEYES, 10 STATE REPRESENTATIVES AND 30 MEMBERS OF U.S. MILITARY
Posted on | March 30, 2011"
The funny thing being is every time Dr. Orly opens her mouth she undermines her case.
30 March - At Slate, David Weigel comments on the two schools of birtherism.
"One reason Trump has been able to do this is that two schools of birtherism have developed since 2008, and one of them has become a surprisingly comfortable place for conservatives to lounge. There have always been Orthodox Birthers. They start with the belief that Obama cannot be eligible for the presidency. They trust evidence they find online—an erroneous report about "Obama's grandmother" saying he was born in Kenya, for example—which stays online forever, just like amateur diagnostic reports of how crashing planes couldn't possibly have brought down the Twin Towers. If that evidence is challenged, they look to theories about what the founders thought "natural born citizenship" meant. Phil Berg, the attorney who filed the first birther lawsuits and who held a "March on Washington" in 2010, says Obama lost his citizenship because a school form from Indonesia calls him Indonesian. Another theory says Obama can't be president because his father was Kenyan and that made his son a British citizen by default. (This theory would disqualify Trump, whose mother was Scottish.)
What Trump is embracing, and Corsi is selling, is Reform Birtherism. It's deductive. "There's something on that birth certificate that he doesn't like," said Trump last week. "I don't know what is on the document," said Corsi in 2009. The truth is unknowable, because Obama is hiding something about his birth documents.
This is all obtuse, because unless the state of Hawaii has issued a false document and the Honolulu Advertiser and other media were defrauded when they printed Obama's 1961 birth announcement, there's more proof of his origins than there is proof of most things. If the president lost his original paper certificate at some point, he's in the same boat as Greta Van Susteren, who confessed as much in an interview with Trump."
30 March - And we have the docket for oral arguments in Keyes/Barnett v Obama.
(Scribd link here)
It's interesting to note one of the instructions for that case:
"MAXIMUM ARGUMENT TIME 15 MINUTES PER SIDE"
I'm going to assume that gives Kreep AND Dr. Orly about 7.5 minutes each. Since Dr. Orly can't get to the point in under 20 minutes, I suspect the day after the arguments is going to be full of "HOW DARE THEY! THEY DIDN'T LET ME FINISH!!!!" followed by the usual blather about corrupt judges and the like.
