In today's dispatches, Dr. Kate likes the idea of birtherpoolza, and thinks it might even get more people than other DC rally, (it already has more than her last one.) Dr. Corsi's stable of non-experts goes after rubber stamps. Birtherpoozla gets reportage from the media.
Polland / Polarik has a new e-book out full of conspiracy goodness. World Nut Daily tries to keep Corsi's book off of remainder tables (oh, and send money. In the birtherstani civil war, Dr. Orly is told "Yes, you can have sanctions now please".
Some birther wack-a-mole by a right-wing pundit. The Post and eFail publishes some whiny letters AND Interviews a crank "scientist" to boot!!
21 July - Dr. Kate seems to think Haskin's birtherpoolza is a great idea!
"While Americans continue efforts to investigate and remove Mr. Obama from office or disqualify him from the 2012 ballot, efforts are underway to organize a Birther Summit–the largest gathering of Americans in the Nation’s Capitol since the 912 taxpayer March of September 2009."
You mean the one with about 80,000 people that the tea party claims was 1-2 million people??
Well, by that standard, several hundred were at your "Usurpathon". Instead of, you know, the three that was there.
BTW, there was an estimated 215,000 at Jon Stewart / Stephen Colbert's "Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear" in October of 2010.
Oh, and she's be there:
July 21, 2011 at 9:32 pm
I will be attending the Birther Summit and hope to see you there as well!"
Surprised she's not listed as a member / speaker, Considering her belief in HAARP and chemtrails, I figured she would be a shoo-in.
Oh, and "Borderraven" has an idea to inflate the numbers for birtherpoolza.
July 21, 2011 at 11:06 pm
The Birther Summit can be linked up via Skype with locations nation-wide and potentially serve more citizens and voters."
At least he understands the target audience though.
"Venues like Senior trailer park clubhouses, and Senior Centers, or restaurant meeting rooms."
21 July - Swiftboat liar Jerome Corsi continues to try and claim the long form was a forgery. His latest attack, the rubber stamp by the registrar.
"A close examination of the state registrar's stamp on the Obama birth certificate released by the White House indicates the document is forged, according to the preponderance of Adobe experts consulting with WND."
Which so far consists of PUMA who co-wrote three books on photoshop ten years ago, and someone who claims to have worked for Adobe in it's early years. Neither one of which seems to have noticed that the PDF was created using Apple's built-in PDF system, not an Adobe product.
"Viewed in Adobe Illustrator, the date stamp and the registrar text, along with the signature of Dr. Alvin Onaka, constitute two separate layers, indicating the date stamp was electronically placed on the electronic birth certificate"
Or, more likely, Illustrator recognized them as two separate elements and layered them accordingly when the file was opened up in that application.
21 July - The Orange County Register reports on birtherpolooza.
“Having been ignored by their leaders for far too long, the American people are demanding to be heard,” reads the explanation on the birthersummit.org website."
Ignored would imply you have a valid argument rather than a mashup of conspiracy theories.
“Out of those demands was born the Birther Summit, an event presently being planned for the voice of the people to be united into a single unavoidable chorus requiring our officials to do the jobs for which they were elected, and fully investigate Barack Obama’s eligibility, based upon the sparse documentation he has provided.”
The fact that you're packing the "membership" with people who have already made up their minds about said eliigibilty is a minor, picky detail. Kinda like Manning's play "trial" with a jury drawn from a wide range of birther sites.
"You’re probably wondering what role birther lawyer Orly Taitz of Laguna Niguel will play.
Unfortunately, I haven’t heard anything about that yet, but She’s listed on the site as a “summit speaker/member.”
The comments are fun too. A good chunk of the people on Haskin's member's page is there. Dr. Orly’s PI Neal Sankey is there. Failed OK congressional candidate Miki Booth is there Disgruntled PUMA Helen Tansey is there. Seditionist Gary Wilmott is there. DUI attorney Mario Appuzo is there. Minuteman Tony Dolz is there. And of course, Mr Haskins himself is there pimping his “summit”.
21 July - The Pest and eFail gives a sneak peak at Polland / Polarik's upcoming online book.
"Dr. Ron Polland, PhD, has just finished a new e-Book, Alias Barack Obama: The Greatest Identity Fraud in History that covers his three-year investigation into the life and background of Barack Hussein Obama, and the mystery of his online birth certificate."
How many pages does it take to say "Wahhh, he's a fake, a no-good poopiehead muzzie and I DON'T LIKE HIM???""
Based on the link to said document, 215 pages in this volume alone.
"What began as a simple study of the online image posted on June 12, 2008 by the Daily Kos blog and the Obama Campaign had mushroomed into a full-blown research project consuming more than 4,000 man-hours of work "
Oh come on. It didn't take you 4,000 hours to make crap up.
"Moreover, the ways in which he and his collaborators enlisted the so-called Free Press into doing his bidding, in promulgating a forgery and a fictitious identity, in promoting a false Messiah and defending a traitor-in-hiding is as reprehensible as it is unforgivable."
You notice it's always the right-wing who use the "Messiah" line.
"This is a project on which I have been working, non-stop, for the past three years. As you recall in our initial interview exactly a year ago on how I started (The Post & Email’s “That’s Not a Genuine Scan.”), I envisioned this investigation into “Obama’s Certification of Live Birth,” aka the COLB, lasting no more than three months. I would review all the information I could gather, analyze what I found, report on it, and then be done"
And when you realized your "analysis" came up with results that directly went against your claims, you did a CYA move that caused you to fall down the rabbit hole into crazyville.
"The focus of Dr. Polland’s book is different from Jerry Corsi’s book, “Where’s the Birth Certificate,” in that he links together the creation of the COLB and the conspiracy to fabricate and hide the identity of Barack Obama leading up to the election of 2008."
Not really. Both are a pack of lies from known liars. The difference is that Polland / Polarik doesn't have the money behind him that Corsi does.
21 July - At World Nut Daily, Jim Fletcher sticks to the Farah party line
"I have a confession to make: I thought the debate over Barack Obama's birth certificate was over."
"....until the guy who signs my paycheck said otherwise".
"That is, until I read Jerome Corsi's new book – "Where's the Birth Certificate? The Case That Barack Obama Is Not Eligible to Be President."
On sale for $4.95 at World Nut Daily, and in #4101st place on Amazon!!
"For example, Obama's election created a buzz in the Kenyan National Assembly in November, 2008, Corsi discovered.
A member of that body, Millie Odhiambo, addressed the speaker: "Mr. Deputy Speaker, sir, the president-elect, Mr. Obama, is a son of the soil of this country. Every other country in this continent is celebrating the Obama win. It I only proper and fitting that the country which he originates from should show the same excitement, pomp and color. I, therefore, seek leave of the House that we adjourn to discuss the issue."
Yeah, how dare they take note of the fact someone of Kenyan ancestry, with a Kenyan father, became the President of the United States!! "Son of the soil" doesn't mean "born there" unless you have paste for brains.
"It should be noted here that sometimes, books contain valuable appendices that help the reader understand a particular subject. "Where's the Birth Certificate?" goes far beyond that, with an "Exhibits" section in the middle that is amazing. For 93 pages, the author reproduces documents, screen grabs and photos that provide an explosive basis for his book's theme. I might add, this section is printed on high-quality paper, thus making the documents resonate with the immediacy of a true investigative journalist uncovering them for the first time. This section, combined with the landmark research in the book overall, make "Where's the Birth Certificate?" the value purchase of the year."
So did Corsi pay you to write this, or are you tongue-buffing his rear free of charge??
"Perhaps as important as the controversy surrounding his birth is the issue of his Muslim roots. Corsi uncovers a vast amount of information on this.
Indeed, Obama, as Corsi documents, Obama was a Muslim in Indonesia from the ages of 6-10. Exhibit 94 on page 210, his school registration card, under the name "Barry Soetoro," lists his religion as "Islam." In this one instance, Corsi has uncovered what many Americans believe: The American president has a Muslim background. Such information is not forthcoming from the White House today, yet this piece of information has huge implications for our country."
Good way to work in the "stealth Muslim" ploy.
"Here's hoping that this book, already skyrocketing up the bestseller lists, will have the same impact that Corsi's 2004 stunner, "Unfit for Command," had on the nation."
Let's see. New York Times doesn't list it anymore (and when it did, it had the "group sales" mark). Amazon has it at #4101. Barnes and Noble has it at #11,137
This seems to be a definition of "skyrocketing" that doesn't bear any relation to "reality".
21 July - In the birtherstani civil war (California front), Judge Guilford does two orders.
"07/21/2011 307 MINUTES (IN CHAMBERS): ORDER by Judge Andrew J. Guilford: STRIKING MOTIONS AND IMPOSING SANCTIONS: On June 14, 2011, the Court imposed a pre-filing restriction. (Dkt. # 227.)

It's not $20,000, but I'll take it. She might have that much in loose change in the seats of the Tesla though.
21 July - Bernard Goldberg seems to be having fun playing whack-a-mole with birthers.
"Okay class, let’s try an experiment. Please read these questions and send me your comments. Trust me, I’m a professional, I know what I’m doing. I anxiously await your responses.
1. Do you still think that Barack Obama was not born in the United States?
2. If so, where do you think he was born?
3. Do you think the long form birth certificate released a few months ago is legitimate or do you think it’s a fraud. If you think it’s fake, why do you think that?
4. How would you characterize people who believe Barack Obama was born in Hawaii and that his birth certificate is 100 percent real.
5. How would you characterize people who don’t believe Barack Obama was born in Hawaii and think his birth certificate is a fake?
6. Do you think Barack Obama is a kind of Manchurian candidate? That is, do you think he’s a front man for some devious un-American force that is calling the shots and pulling the strings?
7. Bonus question: Do you think there is a real devil who is the anti-Christ and who now lives among us?"
Based on the usual batch of birther idiots in comments, he's opened a target-rich environment.
22 July - The Pest and eFail interviews pyramid power expert Douglas Vogt.
Now this is funny. Rondeau links to the home page for Vogt's copier company. But for Vector Associates, she links to a page on the "Steel-Die Engravings of the 18th & 19th Century" he sells. Rather than the home page, with links to books like:
It could be sloppy linking on Rondeau's part - or her desire not to show Vogt's past interest in fringe "science" and conspiracies.
"....is in the process of preparing letters to officials in Hawaii and to all members of Congress to include his report on why he believes that the image released by the White House on April 27, 2011 purported to be Barack Obama’s long-form birth certificate is a forgery."
Make sure it's on rolls of soft absorbent paper. They like little touches like that.
"I have a unique background for analyzing this document..."
Yes, you're batshit crazy.
"I think it shook them up. I think it shook up the attorney general in Hawaii and the governor such that they looked at the evidence and said, “He’s right.” That’s plausible deniability; there’s no question. They knew they were presenting a fraud. “We’re in trouble.”
When you read the letter, you’ll see it. I said, “This is most likely going to be the end of the Democrat Party.” The letter is two pages. The point is that I think this letter scared them, especially when they saw plausible deniability, and I think they realized I’m right."
Someone's full of themselves, aren't they??
"What I want to do is something I learned from my friend, who did something similar with a totally different subject, is this: We have a crook in the White House. We have people who are covering up for him. If the FBI doesn’t do anything, I resort to telling them about not only the plausible deniability, but also the section in the statute about misprision of felony. I tell them very plainly that I’m obligated to tell people, and I’ve said, “If you do nothing, I’m going to the next group on the list, which is federal judges.” I’m going to ask them"
Good luck with that skippy.
22 July - Joseph Farah at World Nut Daily wants people to "Call Obama's bluff".
"He's acting like a tough guy who is going to personally withhold the Social Security checks of widows and orphans if Republicans in Congress don't raise the limit on his credit card by trillions of dollars.
He's threatening to invoke economic chaos and havoc by presumably ordering his treasury secretary to default on loan obligations if he doesn't get his way.
In short, he's acting like a spoiled child who has been misbehaving. If his reckless and abominable behavior is corrected or challenged, he promises to be really bad."
Ignoring the fact that it's the Tea Party wing of the GOP who keeps walking away, can Farah be any more condescending? He's all but called Obama "boy".
His solution? Send World Nut Daily some money.
"So what can you and I do as this phony deadline approaches?
I know of only one thing.
Help get the word to the House Republicans not to cave in to the bullying tactics of Obama and the Dems.
Send all of them a fast, urgent and economical message through the "No More Red Ink" campaign, which has already generated more than 1 million such letters."
Only $29.99 at the World Nut Daily superstore. Guess he's got to make up for the failure of Corsi's book somehow. (Now at 4101 at Amazon!)
22 July - More whiney letters at the Pest and eFail, the first being a "Criminal Complaint "...naming FBI, CIA, Legislative Branch and Judicial Branch Commission of Treason"
"Through many tedious months while our Government has been held captive because of the fact that Barack Hussein Obama has held the office of the Presidency illegally thus, portraying as our President when in fact, he is not eligible to hold the office of the Presidency of our great country, the united states of America."
"Wahhh! The scary black man is still in the WHITE House!!!"
Notice the lower case "u" in "united States" BTW. That's a tell-tale the writer is a sovereign citizen.
"Through these months I have written letter upon letter pleading with our CIA, FBI, the Senate and Congress of our U.S. government to employ the necessary means to remove Obama and all of his appointees from said positions."
"Wahhh! I want my coup!! WHERE'S MY COUP!!! WAHHH!! MOMMY!!!"
"Now, it is up to our state officials to proceed according to all lawful procedures to assist every American Citizen in taking back our country."
"Please do not dismiss me as a so-called “Birther”
"Since the Judical Branch has also committed treason by not protecting and defending our Constitution regarding the many suits filed pertaining to Obama and his ineligibility to hold the office of the presidency"
Translation - "The judges used facts and the law, rather than doing what we wanted them to do!!"
22 July - And the next whiney letter is from "Kristy Lonestar", who did that on-line petition for the San Diego County grand jury.
"Confident holding Mr. Obama’s silent agreement and admission, I identify BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA as a foreign born domestic enemy."
Sounds like she cribbed off of Walter Fitzpatrick's notes.
"I, Kristy Lonestar, accuse BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA of the commission of the crime of TREASON against the United States of America. I direct you to two men who hold the charges of TREASON in their hands:
U.S. Attorney William Killian, Knoxville, Tennessee (865) 545-4167
FBI Special Agent in Charge Richard L. Lambert Jr. (865) 544-0751
I am relying on the Power of Presentment given to You, the Grand Jury, and on my Fifth Amendment Rightsas afforded to me by the United States Constitution.
Obedient to the laws of our sacred Constitution in submission of this criminal accusation of TREASON I remain steadfast and loyal to the United States of America and to the United States Constitution. -Unrepentant Patriot
Signed, Kristy Lonestar"
Yeah, that's Walter Fitzpatrick's writing alright. All it's lacking is "here endth the lesson".
How is that petition going anyway?? Well, it's now up to 246 signatures. Of course, with signatures like "Ivan. Bendover", "Ima loser", "Elvis", "Dick n Jane", and "IP Freely", it's hard to take seriously....
22 July - At the Pest and eFail, Tracy Grissom pens her latest erotic fantasy.
"These days if a news headline or editorial title contains the words “IMPEACH” or “IMPEACHMENT” it instantly draws my attention."
You must live for disappointment.
"As I turned to my favorite online newspaper today, “The Post & Email,” I saw there was an article by one Neil Turner entitled “Why Calls For Impeachment Process Are Still On The Table”
"...which immedately made me run and get my ten-inch toy I call 'Mr. Happy'"
"I can’t help myself, I love the word, “impeachment”. It’s a lovely word. Close your eyes and say the word slowly —- “im-peach-ment” — and it invokes a picture of a cool southern night when the intense heat of the day finally begins to melt away, sitting in the porch swing out on the veranda, with the scent of fresh sweet peaches and soothing leafy green mint filling the air..."
...and the sweet, sweet sounds of the songs of the darkies as they toil in the fields, the whipcrack of the overseer breaking that big black stud we just bought, and the creak of the rope around the neck of a darkie that refused to know his proper place".
"Time to impeach him? In my opinion, it’s past time. As for my part, I think I’ll go get one of those nice fresh peaches out of the fruit bowl in the kitchen....."
"....and think of the sweet smell of woodsmoke from the last time daddy lit a cross for us to enjoy."
