And in part 2 of today's dispatches, some more reasons why Obama should have NEVER had to show his long form in the first place. NPR asks why the media didn't call out the birthers sooner. More media coverage on the birtherstani trying to scurry to plan b.
The GOP is still trying to get the stink of birther off of them, while some are blaming the birtherstani on - wait for it - Obama. Various birthers should have to cough up a total of $25,125,000 that they have no intention of ever holding to their word and paying. Pamela Geller joins the "forgery!" choir. (At this point, I think we're looking at version 2 of the Cult of the COLB)
World Nut Daily has no intention of giving up the birth certificate binky. Lame Cherry is off the rails as usual. While racism is a the 800 pound gorilla with birtherism, there's a couple 400 pound ones as well.
Polland/Polarik decides what lies he's going to tell about the long form, while showing off his latest talent, the ability to tell something is a forgery without even seeing it! Wow! The Pest and eFail seems to have problems with key parts of the American Dream.
I suspect I found the spiritual lover and mate of a certain retired officer. Wow.....simply wow. And last but not least, Henry Rollins has some things to say about the birtherstani.
27 April - More commentary about why Obama should have never HAD to show his long form.
(note, one word has been edited out by me)
"Mark Thompson of the League explains what Obama had to do to get his long form and make it public:
Quite literally, in order to release this document, the President had to ask to be treated as being above the law, even if it is a relatively trivial law in the grand scheme of things. Quite understandably, the State of Hawaii decided that this was a wise idea. That so many are prepared to insist that the President had an obligation to ask that he be treated as above the law from a very early date is far more troubling.
That Obama should have been expected to file a waiver to get an obscure document that no one else has had to produce and make it public to dispel a rumor based on absurd conjecture and outright lies is clearly a New N****r Rule.
I agree with Adam that it would not be fair to call all Birthers "racists." Maligning or otherwise assigning such terms to groups of people is unproductive and usually wrong factually and morally. That said, there can be no question at all that Obama had to deal with this because he's black. That is a fucking shame, and that is why he didn't release it earlier.
And he never should have had to."
27 April - And NPR asks why the media fed the birthers for so long?
"And a review by Pew's journalism project found that cable news did devote a lot of time to the matter. It's hard to pin down precisely how much coverage each cable network dedicated to the "birther issue" because many of those stories are incorporated within larger categories such as the 2012 presidential campaign and the Obama administration.
Mark Jurkowitz, associate director of the Pew project, told NPR that MSNBC devoted the most time to political matters; Fox was next. However, MSNBC has an openly liberal outlook on most of its opinion shows and often spent time disputing the claims. Fox News' opinion lineup is predominantly and strongly right of center.
The liberal watchdog group Media Matters for America says that since early March, guests made false claims in 52 segments about Obama's birth certificate, but that Fox News hosts or anchors disputed those claims in just eight instances.
Nonetheless, in recent days, Fox News anchors such as Shepard Smith and Bill Hemmer threw cold water on doubts regarding the president's birth."
27 April - And commentary from the Ed Schultz show.
28 April - Talking Points Muckraker comments on the birtherstani's fallback to their assorted plan b's.
"There was no unified reaction in the birther community to the release of a long-form copy of Obama's birth certificate, which showed that yes, he was born in Hawaii, as he's said all along -- and as he had already demonstrated by the release of his official Hawaiian birth certificate years ago. But the responses have fallen into a few categories: denial, anger, bargaining, depression and -- for a limited few birthers -- acceptance.
Some questioned the authenticity of the long-form birth certificate: "After more than two years of concealment and obfuscation, this document must be submitted for forensics testing to determine its authenticity," saidsupporters of an Army doctor in prison for refusing to deploy due to his concerns about Obama's eligibility. Orly Taitz -- who fell for fake Kenyan birth certificates on eBay -- told TPM she still has her suspicions about the document provided by the state of Hawaii.
Still others -- like an aide to an author of a state birther bill -- were troubled that the document said "certificate of live birth" and not "birth certificate."
28 April - And many in the GOP go"we're not birthers, but what took him so long?"
"Of course, the grand uniting theme is that Obama can't win -- either he blew it by showing his birth certificate and feeding the media frenzy further or he screwed up by doing it too late to stop birther rumors from taking hold. That's the popular line in mainstream Republican circle, however. In the fever swamps that produced the smear in the first place the default reaction is a predictable scramble to rally behind newer and even more convoluted conspiracy theories."
The GOP has a lot of work to do to get the stink of birther off of them.
28 April - On Alan Colmes website, a round up of birthers who owe money.
Like Joseph Farah:
"Let’s start with the “King of the Birthers,” Joseph Farah:
“More than five months ago now, around Obama’s alleged Aug. 4 birthday, I stepped out publicly and offered a $10,000 charitable gift to the hospital found on his long-form birth certificate. All he or the hospital or the state of Hawaii would have to do to claim the prize is show the American public the document that should have been produced long ago to claim the presidency as a natural born citizen,” he wrote . .
“Since politicians in Hawaii are so interested in honoring Obama, why not use their influence on him to produce the proof that will lead to a cash contribution – no strings attached – to a worthy charity. In fact, I’ll make it $15,000!” he wrote.
That’d be 15 large, Joseph: Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children, 1319 Punahou St., Honolulu, Hawaii, 96826. Or you can go ahead and send it to the National Institute of Mental Health.
"Bill Keller who is seen daily on Comcast’s MyTV8 has issued a $10,000 challenge to MSNBC host Rachel Maddow to produce the Hawaiian long-form birth certificate of President Barack Obama. Late last year, Keller was hired to produce and host an infomercial that aired in markets around the country which simply asked the question, where was President Obama really born? Maddow used her MSNBC program to mock and demean Keller and those who simply are asking that the President produce his long-form birth certificate.
Hey Bill, turn on your television. *click* That’s the sound of 10 grand about to upgrade Rachel’s dressing room wet-bar.
“I, Jason Hommel, promise that I will give $100,000 to the first person who can prove to my satisfaction that Barack Obama, acting as president of the United States, is a ‘natural born’ citizen of the USA, which is a qualification to hold the office as indicated in the U.S. Constitution,” he wrote.
Hello, Jason. Click here to see naked ladies. Oops. I’ll take the $100,000 in tens and twenties. If you start running out of bags and wanna just send me thirties, that’s fine. I’ll send you some humble pie in return.
And remember the site "Reward for Obama's birth certificate"?? The one that started out with:
"Following is a detail analysis as to why we need to see "HONKY" Obama's real long form birth certificate so we can remove what we believe to be an ugly fraud from the office of President of the United States!"
How much do they owe?
"After reading Glenn Beck’s books…ask yourself, “How Much Would Corporate America Pay to See His Real Birth Certificate?”
The owners of this website will pay $25,000,000 to Barack Hussein Obama if he will produce his “real” long-form birth certificate.
Help spread the word about our $25 million reward to Barack Hussein Obama for him to produce his “real” long-form birth certificate…we will continue to increase the amount of the reward until it is so huge that the American people will begin to question why he has by executive order sealed all his background info to hide something…his nationality, his religion, his commie background…
And the chances any of these people will pay up?
I would say none at all.
28 April - David Frum wonders why the GOP didn't rein in the birthers in their party?
"Greenwald suggests that the president cunningly baited a trap with the conscious intent of portraying his opponents as racist lunatics.
Greenwald may very well be correct about this. Question: Faced with such a devilish ploy, how might Republicans and conservatives have avoided being victimized? Here’s a thought. What about: not walk into it?
Instead, with rare exceptions, leading Republicans from the Speaker of the House downward played games with the birther issue. Maybe they played those games unhappily, but they played the games even so. That was a choice, not a compulsion. And some Republicans – Sarah Palin inevitably, but others too – did much more than play games. That was a choice too.
What else could Republicans have done? They might have answered as Bill Clinton answered when confronted by 9/11 conspiracy theorist hecklers. He heard them out. He recapitulated the facts. He restated the truth. And he told people who continued to defy reality that they “looked like idiots.” He added for good measure: “We heard from you. You go away.”
28 April - Fox Business has Pamela Geller on to say "Long form - fraud or hoax?"
"After pointing at a blown-up version of Obama's long-form certificate and discussing whether the borders were "Photoshopped," Bolling concluded that "it may or may not be, but it certainly opens up the can of worms that there are at least questions."
Here's an example of the kinds of "questions" Bolling now has. After noting that the doctor that signed the birth certificate had "passed away," Bolling pointed out that the doctor's wife and son both were unaware that he had delivered President Obama. Bolling asked: "If you gave birth to the president of the United States, don't you think your family would know about it?"
The doctor died in 2003.
Let that sink in for a second.
At the time, Barack Obama was a little-known state senator in Illinois. If the doctor had told his family before he died that he delivered the future president, that would have spawned a much more interesting conspiracy theory (he's a wizard!). Apparently Eric Bolling thinks obstetricians give their families a list of the most interesting people they delivered -- with a special section for "potential future presidents" -- before they die.
Stop digging, Bolling. You're embarrassing yourself."
Bear in mind that Geller still believes in "TechDude", so she'll believe ANYONE who claims anything negative about Obama.
28 April - The GOP still has a lot of work ahead of them to get the stink of birther off of their hands.
"...In the wake of President Obama's decision to release his long-form birth certificate Tuesday morning, there is a bit of encouraging news: According to a snap poll conducted by Survey USA, 24 percent of Republicans say that doubts they previously had about where Obama was born have been erased and that they are now satisfied that their president was born here."
That's a positive sign
"But there is also discouraging news: More than half of Republicans still aren't buying Obama's story. 18 percent of them told Survey USA that they consider the long-form a forgery, and another 33 percent say they still have doubt. Moreover, nearly 60 percent of Republicans say that they either still consider Obama's birthplace to be open to debate or aren't sure, and 33 percent claim that the president was "definitely" or "probably" born elsewhere. (Among all respondents, 77 percent say that Obama was "definitely" or "probably" born in America.)"
The sane Republicans have their work cut out for them.
"...will not be surprising if significant numbers of Republicans continue to profess doubt about Obama's birthplace. Part of this is because, for many on the right, who have been encouraged by even mainstream GOP leaders (through, for instance, their obsession with "American exceptionalism") to view Obama as a fundamentally anti-American figure, it probably feels like the "right" answer. There's also the issue of partisan loyalty: Since Obama is their "enemy," some Republicans may feel compelled to provide negative answers to any and all poll questions about him."
A LOT of work cut out for them.
28 April - Here's a good example of the "blame the victim" mentality.
"The popular way for "respectable" conservatives to dismiss birtherism without insulting the birthers (who, remember, make up something like 400 percent of the Republican Party, according to various scientific polls) is to call it a "distraction," or darkly insinuate that Democrats might be behind the whole thing. This is traditionally known as "blaming the victim," and it is what right-wingers basically always do when they're not "playing the victim," which they tend to also do a great deal of, these days. (Sarah Palin has mastered doing both simultaneously.)"
I thought the GOP was supposed to be the party of "personal responsibility"??
"And what a cunning trap it was. Republicans simply can't help inventing and propagating ludicrous, racially charged fictions about a successful black man! The real guilty party here is the man who irresponsibly got himself elected president with a unique personal background that is somehow threatening to the aging, white residents of an imagined homogenous "Real America"!
Reince Priebus, the new RNC chair, is not as effective at political messaging as Rove. And so in attempting to dismiss birtherism while not offending the birthers, he inadvertently made headlines by implicitly endorsing birtherism. He said that he believed that the president was born in America, but refused to condemn Donald Trump's birtherism. Yesterday, the RNC joined the chorus of Republicans dismissing the entire birth certificate thing as if it was a distraction Obama cooked up himself: "Obama’s release of his birth cert. is a nice, but temporary distraction for him from high gas prices & a terrible economy."
This is an even better conspiracy theory than birtherism, actually. Barack Obama obviously wrote the first rumors about his background, hid his "long-form" birth certificate away, and then paid Philip Berg and Andy Martin to spread the story that the president was foreign-born, all so that one random day in April of 2011 he could "distract" everyone from how expensive gas is.
And positively sickening.
28 April - And just to show that World Nut Daily won't stop flogging this particular dead equine....
"I think that, given the level of deceit shown by Mr. Obama to date, the physical birth certificate needs to be inspected by a panel of forensic document experts who visit it in its Hawaiian archive home. I would suggest that this be done on a live television broadcast, without edits. I say this only because Mr. Obama has had two years to use some of the best document forgers in the world (if our intelligence agencies still hold that distinction) to produce a long-form birth certificate. Yet he will still have found it difficult to alter the physical record that exists in Hawaii's archives."
*Faceplant* Since the chain of evidence shows it was sent FROM the State of Hawaii, you would have to believe that Obama placed the "forgery" in the archives themselves.
Oh, wait, that's what the birthers have believed for a while, haven't they??
"Finally, the long-form birth certificate does nothing to quell the natural-born-citizen issue, which our Founding Fathers found important enough to write into the Constitution. If the reports of the senior Obama's British citizenship are true, Obama would not be natural-born – and would be unable to legally hold the office of president."
Not according to US law or the US Constitution. Under both of those, Obama is a Natural-Born US citizen, irregardless of the citizenship of his father.
"Now onto the college records, Mr. Trump. And the lawyer records from the state of Illinois. "
So those are the next fishing trips then??
"By the time of the next election, America should have a much better picture of its affirmative-action president."
"Affirmative-action president". Racist much World Nut Daily???
28 April - The Guardian (UK) comments on the USCIS report on Obama, Sr.
"As early as 1961, a memo in the file notes a statement from a Mrs McCabe, a foreign student adviser at the University of Hawaii:
Mrs McCabe further states that Subject [Obama senior] has been running around with several girls since he first arrived here and last summer she cautioned him about his playboy ways. Subject replied that he would 'try' to stay away from the girls.
The memo also considers Obama senior's earlier Kenya marriage, and after noting that "polygamy is not an excludable or deportation charge," it recommends that "the Subject be closely questioned before another extention is granted – and denial be considered."
Here's an interesting part:
"Writer Andrew Rice has read the documents and sees a theme:
What I think the documents reveal, though, is a subtle, institutionalized conspiracy that in a way seems more insidious than overt cross-burning racism, because almost surely none of its participants thought of their actions as discriminatory at all. In that sense, the file is an instructive artifact, not just of our president's biography, but of our nation's history of conflicted attitudes about race, foreign cultures, intermarriage and sex.
Hard as it may be to believe today, it seems clear from a close reading of the the file that the president's father was driven from this country because of his messy personal life. And reading between the lines, it's not hard to see a subtext of miscegenation.
It's worth remembering that state laws banning interracial marriage in the US were only overturned by the US Supreme Court in 1967, at which time 17 states had "anti-miscegenation" laws – including Maryland, Delaware, Oklahoma, Missouri and Virginia."
And a fun comment:
28 April 2011 12:32PM
Shock. Sixties student has sex with several women."
28 April - I really didn't want to go look at Lame Cherry....
"Barack Hussein Obama deliberately released this abstract to create even more turmoil for his racial motives. THIS DOCUMENT IS DESIGNED TO CREATE A RACIAL DIVIDE. It is a politically engineered "spin" to pit blacks against whites for the Obama 2012 campaign."
Funny, I thought Lame Cherry and most birthers were trying to create such a divide.
"I have nothing telling in the COLB, but it is puzzling, as I'm certain that in 2009 Joseph Farah obtained a digital copy of the original. Donald Trump is now stating that the birth certificate is missing. That is inside the vault information coming from Abercrombie via Emanuel.
A number of people have that document in digital copy, including the Clintons........the problem is now that someone apparently like Obama's known associates FBI files have been destroyed.
No this is not a problem that it is has been destroyed as you might think.........the problem is Obama's as one of his folks went in and destroyed that record of birth sometime between June 2009 and April 2011..........that children is conspiracy in the RICO Act in covering up a crime and destroying evidence."
So did your corn flakes tell you that, or was it the voices in your baseboard that whisper to you at night??
28 April - Salon touches upon other roots of birtherism. Racism has been one of the big ones, but as I've said before, there are a few others as well.
"Shortly thereafter, though, something unexpected happened: Obama started winning primaries and caucuses. Lots of them. By the end of February, he'd built a commanding delegate advantage. Hillary, it became clear, was going to lose. The threat of a Clinton restoration was over. And just like that, conservatives seemed to forget every nasty, terrible thing they'd ever said about the Clintons. The most hilarious example, as I documented at the time, may have been Pat Buchanan, who had famously pilloried Hillary as a radical feminist "lawyer-spouse" during his 1992 Republican convention speech; but as she fell hopelessly behind Obama, Buchanan began portraying her as a folk hero to white working-class voters -- with Obama now relegated to the role of dangerous radical. And Buchanan was hardly alone. It was at this point in the 2008 campaign that conservative opinion-shapers began focusing obsessively on Jeremiah Wright and Obama's other frightening "associations."
This is what birtherism really grew out of: a refusal by the right to accept the legitimacy of any Democrat who comes within spitting distance of the White House."
Pretty much so. There is a streak in the far right that sees any Democrat in the White House as a de facto usurper of a Republican's rightful place.
"...the Clintons were still the face of the national Democratic Party for most of the Bush era (replaced only briefly by John Kerry in 2004), and the threat of a restoration seemed very real. It was against this backdrop that they treated Obama as a sympathetic figure in 2007 -- a poor, innocent guy being roughed up by some bad people. And it was only when Obama and Hillary switched places in the polls that the caricaturing was reversed.
In this sense, race in general and birtherism in particular, are simply the specific tools that the right has used to play the same game it played with the previous Democratic president."
And if you look at many of the birther players (Jerome Corsi, Floyd Brown, Joseph Farah, etc.), you see the exact same people who were pimping the Clinton conspiracy stories in the 1990's.
28 April - Looks like Dr. Ron Polland, Ph.D. in Bullshitology, has finally decided what lies he's going to make up about the long form. And, of course, the Pest and eFail is there.
"Now, my book will have yet another update after Donald Trump came along and flushed out all of the rats behind the conspiracy to forge it. I already went on record as saying that Chiyome Fukino lied through her teeth about Obama (“Obama Bombshell,” aka “Blue Hawaii”), but I had no idea just how much and how far she would go on lying until she gave an interview with an MSNBC reporter."
Because, after all, this is the same "Ph.D. in instructional media" who learned about documents from his father inventing a duplication process and who claims that every single picture of Obama as a child and a young adult is a photoshopped forgery. Against that background, what chances does a Republican former Director of Health for the State of Hawaii have??
"This forgery is a sick joke, but I have no doubt the Obama freaks will hail it as being real.
For three years, this forged, one-sided image has been passed off as a “digital scan” of Obama’s birth certificate.”
I have seen this “new” “long-form” image before – and so has the P&E – as a black and white typed version with Madeline Dunham as the signatory, not Ann Dunham Obama.
Without looking at what the White House released, I know it is also a forgery. Right off the bat, Ann’s signature is forged."
Wait a minute.... He's saying that even without LOOKING at the long form, he know's it's a forgery??
Wow, that's really........crazy. Even for him.
Once again, the eternal truth:
28 April - More clueless grunting from the Pest and eFail
"Ignorantly Preposterous - TO BELIEVE THAT JUST BECAUSE YOU ARE BORN ON U.S. SOIL YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO RUN FOR THE PRESIDENCY OF THE MOST POWER COUNTRY IN THE WORLD"
Well, it's been part of the American Dream for many, many years that anyone born in the United States could someday grow up to become President.
What part of the American Dream does Creg Maroney have problems with? Oh, the fact that it applies to an uppity darkie with a funny name as well?
"You ignorant souls that think any Communist Socialist foreign Dictator in the world including Hitler, if he were still alive (and he just might be), can come to America with his communist wife, not become a U.S. citizen by naturalization, have their child here on U.S. soil, go back to Germany, raise their child then plant him here on American soil during an election and Hitler’s son has the opportunity of becoming The President of The United States of America and the most powerful Army in the world?"
Funny thing, but if that person can get the majority of votes. then yes, they have a chance.
"Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution stipulates a distinct difference between a “CITIZEN” (14th Amendment) and an Article 2 “NATURAL BORN CITIZEN.”"
It does? The exact words are:
"No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States."
US law and US legal rulings have defined "Natural Born" as having US Citizenship from birth, either though birth on US soil, or having a US citizen parent or parents.
"To only be a “CITIZEN” and become President you would have had to have been “ALIVE AT THE TIME OF THE ADOPTION OF THE CONSTITUTION” (The Grandfather Clause) and still alive today. Since that is impossible now to be eligible for United States Presidency, you must be a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN. It is written in Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5. JUST READ IT. GOOGLE IT."
Cap key abuse much??
And I just read it AND posted it above. Along with the US law that goes with it.
"Barry Soetoro/Soebarkah aka -Barack Hussein Obama just proved he is 100% USURPER.
He must step down or be removed. Weakness in The Constitution will cripple the People."
"Wahhh! The scary darkie was born in the US after all! Wahhh, how are we going to get rid of him now?? Wahhh, help us Obi-Wan de Vattel, you're our only hope!"
28 April - I'm trying to figure out what commodities Ann Barnhardt trades in, save insanity, bigotry, and general crazyness. She's a "conservative catholic", but thinks Ayn Rand is okay with her and is the type of gun nut that gives gun owners like myself a bad rep.
Mostly known it seems for a YouTube video where she tears a Quran up, she also seems to be trading pretty heavily on the Birtherstani Stock Market.
Her blog is badly written and put up, with no links to individual posts, (though it's heavy on pictures of her pink AR-15), and she starts every day off (ironically it seems) with the Lord's Prayer. Here's an assortment:
"WHO AM I CALLING OUT FOR PRESIDENT IN 2012?
POSTED BY ANN BARNHARDT - APRIL 7, AD 2011 10:17 AM MST
I have received many, many inquiries into who I am supporting for President in 2012. As I told this gentleman last summer, divine providence is calling him. He CAN NOT WAIT. His time is NOW, because we don't have any more time, as a nation and as a civilization.
The next elected President of the United States MUST be LTC Rep. Allen Bernard West, and his running mate must be Mr. Herman Cain. LTC Rep. West has the combat military experience to lead us as Commander in Chief in war, and Mr. Cain has the real-life business experience and economic prowess to work domestically to undo the massive damage that has been done to our economy over the last five years."

The population of Florence, Colorado is going to be upticking in the not-so-distant future.
WOUNDED ANIMALS ARE THE MOST DANGEROUS. This nation needs to move QUICKLY on this, because now that these people are starting to realize that the jig is up, they are going to try to collapse the nation and the rule of law as the final, desperate means of avoiding arrest and imprisonment. That is what we have been seeing over the past several weeks, including the Libyan action. We are in EXTRAORDINARILY DANGEROUS waters, as is the entire world.
Pray, pray, pray, pray. And then stand up, and scream from the mountaintops that they will not take down our country. We are the United States of America, and we will defeat the usurping enemy within."

...Obama is not the POTUS. Obama is not the CIC. Further, the entire Executive Branch is illegitimate, and so all military orders coming from the Executive / CIC are illegitimate and illegal. Do our field commanders in all of the service branches know and understand this? Do the sub skippers know and understand this? If orders come down for the USS Enterprise or USS Carl Vinson carrier groups to steam toward Israel, what will they do? Are we really willing to watch and wait and potentially force our military and naval commanders to make the decision whether or not to fire on an ally of the United States? Are we that crippled by our own moral cowardice?

POSTED BY ANN BARNHARDT - APRIL 25, AD 2011 4:53 PM MST
...Barack Obama has spent his entire life, literally from the day he was born, surrounded by people who actively, viscerally hate the United States of America. The Dunham family were Communists. Lolo Soetoro was a Marxist and a nominal Muslim. Frank Marshall Davis was a Communist. Obama’s professors and social circle at Occidental College were Marxists by Obama’s own tacit admission in Bill Ayers’ book "Dreams From My Father". Obama’s Chicago mentor and aforementioned ghostwriter, Bill Ayers, is an avowed Communist. Obama’s so-called “pastor”, Jeremiah Wright, is a Marxist and rabid anti-Semite. Since America is the diametrical opposite of the tyranny of Marxism and the tyranny of islam, hatred of America is the inevitable derivitive of Obama's Marxist-muslim life and upbringing. Naturally, all of these people share the common trait of a visceral, seething, and in the case of Ayers, a demonstrably violent hatred of the United States, her economy, her culture and her people. Obama has been indoctrinated since early childhood to believe that the United States is the enemy, the ultimate criminal enterprise, the source and foundation of every imaginable grievance – and not merely on an aggregate scale, but on a personal level. Barack Obama views the United States of America as his sworn personal enemy, and thus his entire life has had as its focus and goal ascending to positions of power that would allow him to do one thing: mete out punishment. And that is exactly what Obama is doing.
Obama is, in all likelihood, a sociopath. He does not empathize, or even possess the capacity to fake the appearance of empathy toward other human beings. Obama doesn’t care about the poor or the oppressed, and the horrific collateral damage already being caused by ObamaCare is but one example of this cold indifference. These groups are merely pawns that Obama uses to capture and increase his own power, and to falsely justify the punishments that he is meting out upon the entire country. The more power Obama acquires, the more severe the punishment he can inflict upon the country. The more punishment he inflicts, the more power he craves so that he may inflict even greater punishment. The more horrific the punishments become, the more power Obama can amass by offering waivers, exemptions and protection from his punishments in exchange for loyalty. This feedback cycle, if left unchecked will grow exponentially, and as we are now seeing in the Middle East, could grow beyond the United States and eventually encompass the entire world."
Wow. This is starting to approach Lame Cherry levels of crazy.

Why? Because if Obama is impeached, the impeachment proceeding ITSELF would establish a legal precedent affirming his legitimacy as POTUS. Impeaching him would actually give him the full rubber-stamping of legal affirmation by the Congress AND the SCOTUS. Dude. That CAN NOT happen.
If he is removed via law enforcement action - as he should be - the entire Obama regime and currently usurping Executive Branch would be instantly dissolved and nullified, as would ALL ACTIONS and LAWS enacted by the Obama regime. Do you understand what this means? If Obama is arrested, ObamaCare instantly ceases to be. All of the drilling moratoriums instantly cease to be. Everything that these Godforsaken Communist wretches have done INSTANTLY, LEGALLY, and PERMANENTLY is deleted. Sotomayor and Kagan? PACK YOUR BAGS, YOU MARXIST WENCHES. Eric Holder? What size orange jumpsuit can we fit you with, Player?
Obama needs to be arrested and held without bail, as he is obviously a massive, massive flight risk. The first thing that Law Enforcement needs to do is determine if he is a full citizen, dual citizen or not a citizen at all. If he is a full or dual citizen, he needs to be tried for treason given all of the rights and due process afforded a citizen of the United States under the Constitution. If convicted, he needs to spend the rest of his life in the SuperMax Federal Pen in Florence, Colorado. If he is found to have no U.S. citizenship at all, he needs to be tried by a military tribunal as an enemy combatant, and if convicted, specially housed for the rest of his life at Florence, Colorado."
Somehow I suspect she would be just as happy with a rope over a tree......

...How is flaunting the Rule of Law to the point that an honorable man who stood in defence of the Rule of Law is FALSELY IMPRISONED amusing, or mere political brinksmanship?
If you would do this to LTC Lakin, what would you do to me, or any other American? How can any of us feel safe and secure in our persons if the Chief Executive and sworn protector of the Constitution LAUGHS at the Rule of Law, and considers HIMSELF to be the law of the land?
Why should We The People put up with your treason, dereliction of duty and high crimes and misdemeanors for one more day?"
We're veering into "visit from the Secret Service" land here.

Over at TheSmokingGun.com , graphic artists are already saying that the Obama BC released this morning is an OBVIOUS fake. They have opened the PDF image in Adobe Illustrator, and it is indeed made up of many component images. It is not a single image, as a true scan that was simply PDF'd would be. In other words, it's a damn Photoshop."
You did notice the Smoking Gun was MOCKING people like you, right??

Arrest that dirty, rotten Son of a Bitch NOW.
You know what, I apologize. I apologize for calling Obama a "son of a bitch" . . . BECAUSE DOGS HAVE PAPERS.
Barack Obama is a criminal of the highest order and MUST be arrested and tried for treason NOW."
"It's NOT real!! It's not! It's not! It's not! It's not! It's not! It's not! It's not!!! WAHHH MAKE THE SCARY BLACK MAN GO AWAY!!!!"
"NEED MORE PROOF IT'S FAKE? NO PROBLEM.

...I will not allow my country to be screwed with by a low-rent Communist agitator. If law enforcement will not act, then the people must. Obama is in NYC at a campaign fundraiser. He should be arrested and should not step foot in the White House again. Send the daughters to Chicago with their grandmother, because Barack and Michelle Obama are, at this moment, fugitives from justice and should be tried for treason."
Congratulations! You've won today's visit from the Secret Service!!!

...OBAMA ATTEMPTED TO PASS A PROVED FORGED BIRTH CERTIFICATE. What the hell else do you need him to do? Do you need him to personally start cutting the hearts out of children and eating them raw on the front portico of the White House? Are you waiting to see him personally push the button to launch nuclear warheads at U.S. cities? Will you believe that he is a traitor then, or will you still make excuses? Are you so afraid of war that you are willing to guarantee a war in order to avoid having to acknowledge that the war is already upon us?"
"This Obama problem could be ended NOW. The solution has been presented to us on a silver platter with a big, fat red ribbon wrapped around it. The man went on national television and committed a proven felony."
He did? Funny, what he did was present a document provided by the State of Hawaii with a clear evidence trail from Department of Health officials to the White House. The fact that a batch of crackpots that were already convinced any long form Obama provided would be a de facto forgery are screaming "forgery" with no credible proof isn't a felony.
"Arrest him, his Marxist witch of a fake wife, Jarrett, Biden, Holder and all the rest, try him for treason and dissolve and nullify the Executive Branch and all of its actions since January 20, 2009. Let the Constitutional chain of succession work, swear in Boehner as a placeholder, and make it clear to him that he will NOT be running for re-election, and reset EVERYTHING with the 2012 elections. THIS IS THE EASIEST WAY OUT. THIS IS THE BEST OPTION."
"WAHHH! MAKE THE SCARY BLACK MAN GO AWAY!!!
"I guess that is the difference between me and them. I would rather die broke, despised and FREE than live ONE DAY as a cowering slave to Marxist tyranny. And with each passing day, it looks more and more like I will be made to prove that sentiment."
Paranoid, delusional, and has a martyr complex. Throws in random theological comments to boot.
Heck with Lame Cherry, she sounds like the spiritual mate of Walter Fitzpatrick.
28 April - At Vanity Fair, Henry Rollins comments on the birtherstani and their recent upset.
"Now that the president’s birth certificate is in full view, it is hardly surprising that many of the people who don’t believe President Obama was born in America are still not convinced. He was born in Africa and his presidency is illegitimate—that’s their story and they’re sticking to it. There is nothing you can show these people that will cool them out.
I also know that President Obama is a master strategist. He has the onerous task of steering his country through some very tough and complex challenges and has to take time out of his day to deal with those who can’t deal with the color of his skin. That really is the issue here and it’s about time that these birther types summon the courage to come in through the front door and own up to it. Of course, moral cowards that they are, they won’t. They can’t. They will move onto some other aspect of the president’s life and attempt to prove some other non-existent fact.
Perhaps one of the reasons the White House only now did the reveal on the president’s birth certificate was to allow enough time for these people to more deeply invest in this idiotic talking point. When they move on to the next non-issue, they will further isolate themselves and turn up the light on their depressing stupidity and negative credibility factor. Months from now, we won’t remember the issue as much as their pathetic conduct."
I also have to give him credit for one of the most disgusting mental images I've had of late:
"I think more airtime should be given to Donald Trump and Orly Taitz. They should run for office together. They should open for Charlie Sheen. They should do an adult-entertainment film."
Urp. I think my oatmeal is about to hit the wall.....
