(NOTE - Bad Fiction will be on holiday during the month of August. I will try and stick to updates 2-3 times a week during this month)
In today's dispatches, looks like Vogt and Irey plan to join Dr. Orly's Hawaiian failure tour. The Pest and eFail and Birther Report have articles about Gary Wilmott's call into a a radio show where Wilmott came off as a complete and total loon.
The Daily Pen has an interesting butterfly theory on Obama, and by interesting I mean really really stupid. Lawrence Sellin continues to see how far he can push the line before crossing over into calling for a violent overthrow of the government and Obama's death.
Birther Report comments on Dr. Orly's newest lawsuit. "One Pissed-Off Vietnam Vet" doesn't like the fact that reports on Anders Behring Breivik makes him sound a like like a Pest and eFail writer. More Pest and eFail whiney letters. Birtherpoolza gets a couple more members. And a new article at the fake Examiner with an interesting new 16 year old "expert"
28 July - At World Nut Daily, swiftboat liar Jerome Corsi piddles the rug with excitement over the idea that Douglas Vogt and Paul Irey plan to go with Dr. Orly to Hawaii.
"Computer scanning expert Doug Vogt and typesetting expert Paul Irey say they will accompany attorney Orly Taitz when she presents to the Hawaii Department of Health a subpoena that should allow her to examine Barack Obama's original 1961 typewritten birth certificate."
Remember that the State of Hawaii has told Dr. Orly in the past that the demands in her subpoenas violate state and federal privacy laws.
"Vogt and Irey both told WND they are making travel plans to join Taitz in Honolulu when she goes to the state agency at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 8, to present the subpoena in person."
Except 8 August is a Monday (note, I see they changed that later)
"We will plan to hold a press conference late in the day of Aug. 8," Vogt said, "and if the document we see varies from the birth certificate documents the White House released, we plan to file criminal charges in Hawaii immediately."
Yeah, good luck with that skippy.
"Vogt and Irey plan to bring a laptop computer and a portable scanner to the Hawaii DOH for the inspection.
"We will scan the document to compare it to the White House electronic version and the Xerox copies they handed out in the press room," he said. "We will immediately make our scan available to the public over the Internet, so the American public can see for themselves."
And you really think the State of Hawaii is just going to sit there and allow you to blatantly violate State and Federal privacy laws like that???
Oh, and you remember how Paul Irey said he believed the long form was a forgery even before he saw it because a unknown "secret service agent" told him??
"Irey told WND he expects the Hawaii DOH at the last minute will do everything possible to prevent Taitz from getting access to the 1961 original Obama birth certificate, if it exists.
"Quite frankly, I doubt the Hawaii DOH has anything to show us," Irey said skeptically, "and if we do see a document, my guess is that it will have been forged for the purpose of showing us something."
Sounds like his mind is already made up. Why bother with the trip?
"Taitz said the state's "privacy" regulations should be ignored, as Obama already has released what the White House purported to be a copy of the document to the public."
They're not "regulations", they're flat out laws, and no, they can't ignore them on the demands of a delusional dentist and her group of cavity creeps.
"There is obviously a case of fraud going on here," says Ohio licensed private investigator Susan Daniels. "In 15 years of having a private investigator's license in Ohio, I've never seen the Social Security Administration make a mistake of issuing a Connecticut Social Security number to a person who lived in Hawaii. There is no family connection that would appear to explain the anomaly."
Does the Social Security Administration ever re-issue Social Security numbers?
"Never," Daniels told Corsi. "It's against the law for a person to have a re-issued or second Social Security Number issued."
How interesting. And what does the Social Security Administration have to say on the subject??
"Should you get a new Social Security number? If you have done all you can to fix the problems resulting from misuse of your Social Security number and someone still is using your number, we may assign you a new number. "
Looks like SSA disagees with Daniels on this matter.
28 July - At the Pest and eFail, Sharon Rondeau is upset because someone on Fox said something about Gary Wilmott they didn't like.
"Instead of asking Wilmott why he believes that Obama is using a fraudulently-obtained social security number from Connecticut or why he suspects that the image produced by the White House on April 27, 2011 is a forgery, Gibson and his assistant responded with ridicule and insults toward Wilmott, implying that he was not of sound mind."
A reasonable assumption.
"Further, Gibson posted an audio clip which is arguably insulting, demeaning, and possibly slanderous directly under the masthead on his website which reads:
[AUDIO] MEDICATION TIME!
We thought all the crazy “birthers” dissapeared, when President Obama released his birth certificate…
Lucky for us, we were WRONG!
Gary in L.A. called in, to remind us all, that Birtherism is alive and well
Watch out for those chemtrails, Gary
Wonder if Gary Wilmott hangs around Dr. Kate's cesspool?
And Gary Willmott responds with (email redacted by me)
"From: Gary Wilmott (redacted)
Subject: Yeah John…I’m a real idiot 75% say Obama born in Kenya That’s a July 28 poll!
Date: Thursday, July 28, 2011, 6:51 PM
An email to John Gibson (redacted)
Hey John…check this out – A new Poll shows 75% believe Obama born in….KENYA!"
So what poll is this?? Well, he provided a Scribd link (here) to a screenshot of what looks like an on-line poll. This one to be precise.
What I find funny is that it doesn't show the URL or the site masthead. There's no identifying marks to show what site this poll was on. Before It's News had the headline (with no links) reposted by Sam Sewell.. I finally found the link here at the conspiracy news sitepresscore.ca as part of an article written by one "PC", who has also written things like "Zionist nationalistic slaughter of the innocent to form a God foresaken State."
So basically an online poll taken at a crank conspiracy site is somehow "proof" to Gary Wilmott.
28 July - And "BirtherReport" posts the audio of Gary Wilmott's call to Fox News.
I apologize for reposting their YouTube video, but the audio is rather hysterical. As is Gary Wilmott, since he's coming across as a complete and total loon.
Behold, the voices of birther America.
28 July - The "Daily Pen" has a new theory, that artifacts in the scan of the long form show a link to.....Malcolm X!!!
"The official document image posted on the internet by the White House on April 27th, 2011 and personally endorsed by Barack Obama as being authentic, contains definitive, but cryptic, references to a slain Black Nationalist and fanatical Muslim leader of the 1960s."
“The ‘dots’, like everything else this covert administration has demonstrated through exploitation of media”, explains Johannson, “are not an accident or a mistake. In fact, they, as well as all the other ‘oddities’ with this document image, are included as a calculated attempt to send an epic message about the true identity and agenda of Barack Obama. I believe these artifacts are intentional to the extent that even Barack Obama, himself, is aware of their content, motive and methods employed by his agents to create them.”
"Johannson continued, “When I first saw the ‘dots’ it reminded me of screened images used to print photos in newspapers in the 1960s. If you look at it with ‘lazy eyes’, it resembles the outline of a butterfly in flight."
"He also believes it probably has some direct reference to Malcolm X, or that it was taken from a photo which accompanies a story on Malcolm X for the following reasons:
MALCOLM THE BUTTERFLY
"Staff at the Daily Pen then did a cross reference of the terms "butterfly" and "Malcolm X" and made a shocking discovery. In 1996, a children's book author, Ken Sims, produced a coloring book called "Malcolm X Butterfly".
"Obviously, someone is having fun with this whole birth certificate thing," says Johannson, "the connections between the "X"s placed throughout this document image, these white dots in the shape of a butterfly outline, Obama's birth certificate controversy and now, this book confirming a pre-existing reference to Malcolm X should prompt someone in the media to look into the validity of the information in this image."
You.....have....GOT.....to be joking........
"It is clear the reference of a butterfly can be attributed to both Obama and Malcolm X historically. However, Johannson is not convinced the forgers of the document image have any association with Mr. Sims, the video producers, or any specific media associated with such a reference. However, he believes the combination of symbology for both men is intended to be a message by the forger of the image of some sort of connection either political, ideological or personal between the two men.
"It could just be a political message not an indication of some relationship between them." says Johannson. "However, forgers will often leave a remnant in their work. Sometimes they leave a 'signature' which only they can identify, or they encrypt a symbol which if discovered might be understood by only a few people but which would have shocking ramifications about the identity of the forger if investigated fully. The problem with the Malcolm X/Obama narrative is that we have theorized about this connection already. Besides, everyone knows Obama looks like Malcolm X so much that he could pass for his son, but how do you prove his parentage without authentic records?"
Someone hit the NyQuil and Peyote smoothies early.
"August of 1959, Time magazine printed a story about the first Governor of Hawaii, William Quinn, covering among other news the rise of communism and Black Supremacy. Specifically, a story called "Races: The Black Supremacy Movement", which is featured on Columbia University's "Malcolm X Project" website. It contained biograhical information about Malcolm X, and was curiously juxtaposed to the Hawaii Governor's story on page 25. "
"Johannson continued, “What we are seeing in the fraudulent presidency of Barack Obama is one of a series of capstones to a 60-year chapter of liberal activism and a brazened continuance of evil communist proclivity, under the growing religious tenancy in Islamic fundamentalism. The endgame is to simply undermine the sovereignty of free and prosperous people of western society. What better way to do this than ensconce as your leader, through any means necessary, an individual who now has the power to implement economic justice, through taxation and manipulation of the global monetary system, ruling from a stolen throne, and who is a genealogical representative of the most radical activist in American history, Malcolm X?”
They don't let you go near anything with sharp edges at the hospital, do they??
29 July - And Lawrence Sellin's latest. He even quotes Ayn Rand, and ends with....well, I'll bold face those parts.
"It is a waste of time writing to your elected officials. They only care about their political careers. They are parasites. Ayn Rand described them accurately:
“When you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing; when you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors; when you see that men get rich more easily by graft than by work, and your laws no longer protect you against them, but protect them against you. . . you may know that your society is doomed.”
You know, anytime I see a quote from Ayn Rand, I tend to dismiss anything else that falls from that person's mouth.
"The fact is that we still do not know when and where Obama was born."
Simple. Honolulu, Hawaii. Next?
"The digital document he presented as his Certificate of Live Birth on April 27, 2011 is a forgery."
Nobody credible with the appropriate experience has made such a claim. Meanwhile the State of Hawaii confirms the document as valid. Next?
"He is using a Social Security Number illegally and he forged his Selective Service registration."
No credible evidence has been found to support either claim.
"All veterans who have served their country are asked to join in a grievance demanding action and hearings based on well-founded documents exposing massive fraud."
"Wahhh! Where's my military coup???
"Our Constitution is now under assault by the creeping imposition of Sharia law orchestrated by government officials. There is no gray area. The Constitution and Sharia law are incompatible."
Oooh, nice little bit of anti-Muslim racism creeping in there.
"We have insane and out-of-touch politicians holding the reins of power. Patriots must join together to take back America by whatever appropriate means or stand by and watch the lunatics drive the country off a cliff.
It is torches and pitchforks time."
He's continuing to stir up his readers. Some of which are already on-board.
"I'm a 54-year-old vet I'm ready to rock! I been screaming and writing at my senators and congressman and all I get is bull****. It's time we arrest them as they get off the plane from dc. then we send new people back to remove the rest. the Deed to this country says WE THE PEOPLE not any thing else. it's time to clean out that nest of corruption from top to bottom. This is war, folks, lock n load!

It's been that time since Obama was elected.
I spent 43 years in Law Enforcement, 4 years in the military, I am not a radical except when it comes to seeing this Republic destroyed and the politicians refusing to step across the line in the sand and defend it as they were elected to do.
Your articles are spot on.

"...The FBI are derelict in their duty to act on our behalf. Barry Soetoro and his minions are nothing more than Criminals at this point and could not survive a comprehensive hearing of their Criminal deeds if subpoenaed by Congress.So where does that leave US? PITCHFORKS? TAR AND FEATHERS? They have crossed the line of common decency and violated all of the trust the American People could possibly have in them where we stand right now. The Day of Reckoning is upon us and the blood of our Fathers and Grandfathers cries out for us to rise up and defend Freedom and Liberty. May we not take lightly this responsibility to remain a Free Republic.

They really want their insurrection, don't they??
31 July - Failed scientologist and writer Sher Zieve continues to plummet off the diving board of reality and into the kiddy wading pool of paranoid insanity.
"Yes…We-the-People have been sold out to the globalists who, along with our own elected leaders under their leader Obama, have almost completely gutted the US Treasury. Our GNP growth is only at 1.3% and we suspect even that figure will be lowered in a month or so. Were you aware that Apple, Inc. is now reported to have more money than the US Treasury? Obama has done his job in record time. No wonder he’s still smiling! None of the people in either political party who currently plan to run for POTUS in 2012 seem ethical enough or capable enough of helping to save this country. I believe that job now firmly lies first and foremost with God and then with We-the-People (assuming we ever get off of our duffs and start real protests to end this debacle we have allowed)."
"Real protests" eh???
31 July - Birther Report posts Dr. Orly's FOIA lawsuit against White House Counsel Kathy Ruemmier.
And how do the birtherstani respond??
"Anonymous said… The legal mind of Orly Taitz is an incredible thing to behold. There is no way any other attorney would have thought of this strategy. July 31, 2011 5:54 AM"
That's because most other attorneys don't suck down the nitrous like a top-fuel dragster.
"Anonymous said… I love Orly, mistakes and all.
Keep pounding…never give up.
July 31, 2011 7:30 AM"
Isn't that what CEL3 said??
31 July - Looks like "One Pissed-off Vietnam Vet" is on a rant again.
"Here we go again. Parrots squawking at one another, each making it up as they go along, to see which lie flies. Today it’s “He was a Christian AND a Conservative.” Oh, really? Since when did the mass murderer in Norway convert, after he was arrested and put in jail? "
You mean the fact there's considerable evidence that Anders Behring Breivik not only claimed to be a Christian but had much the same attitudes towards Muslims as, oh, I dunno, "One Pissed-off Vietnam Vet" ????
"And the truth about Islam? About Sharia? About “honor killings,” right here in America? And the murders at Ft. Hood? Do we hear the word “Muslim,” anyone? Do we hear the truth? No, we don’t, and by being told lie after lie, day after day, we condemn this country, and ourselves. That’s what’s wrong with the reporting of a lie as if it’s the truth. The truth won’t kill you, but a lie certainly can."
Case in point……
1 August - The Pest and eFail does another whiney letter.
"A 24-year veteran of the U.S. Army, Col. Chris Gibson (Ret.), who ran for and won a seat in Congress from the 20th District in New York State in 2010, has failed to respond to a constituent’s pointed queries about Obama’s alleged “ELIGIBILITY, SSN Fraud, BC forgery and lack of Natural Born Status.”
During his years in the Army, Gibson served in four combat tours in Iraq, once in Haiti following the earthquake there in 2010, and took part in a narcotics intercession program in the Southwestern U.S. He has also taught Politics at West Point Academy, having earned a Ph.D. in Government."
Get the feeling he's too smart or too reality-based to buy into the birther party line then??
"A response from a Mr. Bulger was received on July 29, 2011:
From: Bulger, Steve (redacted)
Sent: Fri, Jul 29, 2011 4:55 pm
Subject: RE: NATURAL BORN CITIZENSHIP and the Ineligibility of the Obama presidency
Thank you for your communications to our office on this issue. At this point, Congressman Gibson is satisfied that President Obama is a United States Citizen. If new information becomes public which contradicts this, the Congressman will look into it. We understand that you don’t agree with this position, and we respect your opinion. Thanks."
Short, sweet and to the point. Which means the birthers will miss it completely.
"Why would COL Sellin, whom I URGE YOU to contact and whom Col Gibson may know, say it is the “worst Constitutional Crisis since the Civil War?
Why would MAJ GEN PAUL VALLELY call for Obama’s removal and IMMEDIATE SPECIAL ELECTIONS?”
Because both of them have a serious hate-on for Obama and a complete willingness to to claim any lie out there if it means they can try and score points with the delusional.
1 August - From his home in Helsinki, Lawrence Sellin uses the pixels in "Canada Free Press" to further amp up his calls for insurrection and sedition against the democratically-elected government of the United States.
(Bold face mine)
Oh goodie. "Regime change", right in the very title.
"Every American, who is not still in denial, knows that Barack Hussein Obama is Constitutionally ineligible to be President, has officially proffered a forged Certificate of Live Birth, illegally uses a Social Security Number and has a forged Selective Service registration."
That should be every American who is still willing to believe long-since disproven conspiracy theories, claims from questionable and unreliable sources, and downright lies, knows that the scary black man is "ineligible".
Those of us in the reality-based community, after studying US law, the US Constitution, and 200+ years of case know, know that Barack Obama is eligible under the US Constitution to be President of the United States.
"Obama cannot be permitted to run for President in 2012 because he is not a natural born citizen."
"Cannot be permitted", eh?? Why do I suspect he's hoping one of his readers uses a so-called "second amendment solution" (I HATE that phrase!) to solve the "problem"??
Oh, right, because that's exactly what he's hoping.
"There must be an investigation of the evidence that Obama committed felonies before and after occupying the White House."
And if you had any credible evidence that stood up to close examination, then you might have something.
"If government officials refuse to respect their oaths of office, then it is the responsibility of American citizens to act, as we are “the natural guardians of the Constitution.”
"Unless Obama can prove that he is eligible for the Presidency, every responsible means, including civil disobedience, should be employed to prevent him from contesting the 2012 Presidential election."
Nice attempt at trying to cover your ass Sellin, but your rhetoric tends to show that you could care less about "responsible means", just as long as that uppity darkie is gone one way or another.
"Without the Constitution, there is no United States.
There can be no compromise."
Then why the hell are you trying to ignore or rewrite the Constitution? Oh, right, because someone you don't like happens to be President.
This article is nothing more than a series of dog whistles by Sellin trying to urge someone to "take action" and because a martyr for the birther cause. Literally, Sellin could care less about what happens to the United States (he doesn't live here after all), as long as someone takes out Obama under the guise of "restoring the Constitution" or some such nonsense. Sellin isn't stupid, he knows exactly what he's trying to do here.
1 August - More whiney letters at the Pest and eFail. This one actually pretty throaty to boot!
(Bold face mine)
"As our state of Maryland representative, I emphasize to you, that our chosen representatives of The People must carry out the removal of Barack H. Obama now – or The People will be forced to have a true Revolution. I’m sure you realize that this uprising has been brewing."
"Wahhh!! You better get rid of the scary black man or we'll have an insurrection and YOU'LL BE SORRY!!! WAHHHHH!!!!!"
"There are no more excuses for Congress or the FBI not to remove this man…."
Except the rule of law.
"…from The People’s Oval Office for Fraud and Treason along with other High Crimes"
The "People's Oval Office". How socialistic-sounding!
1 August - Zampolit Haskins adds Dr. Salvatore Ricotta & Kandace Ricotta to his list of birtherpoolza members.
"Dr. Salvatore And Kandace Ricotta
Dr. Ricotta spent many years in clinical and administrative medicine in Niagara Falls, NY. Presently, Sal is employed as a practicing physician in the Phoenix area, and is a Fellow of the American College of Physicians. He served in the Military as a Flight Surgeon, with a tour of duty in Viet Nam in '66-'67. Kandy is a retired RN, mother and grandmother, married to Sal for 41 years. Since 2003, Sal and Kandy have enjoyed living in Scottsdale near their two sons, daughters-in-law, and 5 grandchildren. Relative newcomers to the political scene, both Sal and Kandy have become actively involved since 2007. They have attended rallies in support of Arizona's Immigration Law S.B. 1070, and actively supported passage of the Eligibility Legislation in AZ in the spring. Last fall, they attended a seminar in Surprise, AZ, for an excellent presentation by Dr. Orly Taitz. In October, Kandy attended a rally at Senator John McCain's office in support of Dr. Terry Lakin. Both Kandy and Sal have written numerous emails, faxes and letters regarding the eligibility issue to newspapers, Congressmen/women, as well as to the Director of the FBI. They support Douglas Vogt and continue to assist him with the mailings of his 28 page report, in his tireless efforts to expose Obama's April 27th. BC as a forgery. They are also part of a vast coalition of concerned patriots all over the country who share information, letters and contacts with whomever will fight this vitally important fight with them…and even some who tend to resist! Sal and Kandy are absolute believers that Obama is not eligible to be POTUS, and feel it is their duty as Americans to do whatever they can to assist in exposing him."
So "useful idiots with money" it sounds like.
1 August - Speaking of the "Birther Summit", a quick check on it's Facebook page shows that, as of 1 August 2011 with seven months to go, they have 11 attending, 17 maybes, and 137 "awaiting reply".
Be interesting to see how those numbers change…..
1 August - Haven't seen much from the various Fake Examiners lately, but here's a piece from Elizabeth Delaney writing the "Christianity & Politics Examiner"
"The authenticity of Obama’s birth certificate is once again being explored, this time by radio host Mark Gillar of The Tea Party Power Hour and a team of experts in applications such as Adobe, as well as individuals in fields such as scanning, engineering, and others offering insights into problems with its authenticity from a technical standpoint."
Any real experts??
"Gillar began with some common sense concepts in an interview with author and investigative journalist Dr. Jerome Corsi, who has been pursuing this particular topic for a few years now. "
Okay, so a known liar.
"Gillar’s next guest was Orly Taitz, who is a California attorney that has obtained subpoenas to get Obama’s original birth certificate released on August 8 so that she can view it. One of the subpoenas even includes the signature of the clerk of courts in Hawaii. Nevertheless, Taitz does not expect the Hawaii Department of Health to be cooperative. "
Ah, Dr. Orly. Who still doesn't understand that a subpoena can't force someone to break the law even if it's properly issued.
"Another notable guest on Gillar’s program was retired Major General Paul Vallely. Vallely claims that several “technicians” at the White House went over the document and “unaltered” it and declared it to be a forgery."
So he's gone from "unknown CIA agents" to "unknown White House Technicians". You would think he would at least try to keep his bullshit straight and consistant.
"This article is a simple summary of some of the guests that Gillar invited to be on his program. To listen to the entire show and hear a detailed technical analysis about the questionable authenticity of Obama’s birth certificate, please click on TheTea Party Power Hour link."
The link is here. Susan Daniels also made an appearance as well, as well as Karl Denninger, PUMA birther, Mara Zebest, and someone named "Albert Einstein Renshaw Ph.D", with this as his bio:
"Introducing the 16 year old computer whiz kid who owns his own software firm and received 1.3 million hits on his video that ripped Obama's long form to pieces."
Albert Enstein Renshaw Ph.D. sounds like an interesting bird. See, he's an actor as well.
Actor and a Ph.D?? Wow, some resume….particularly the sections on "aggressive downhill skiing" and "break dance", and "aggressive vert and street in-line". One would wonder where he had the time to get a Ph.D. at the age of 16……
Except he's not really a Ph.D. per se. See, that's his NAME, not his degree. You see, his father, one Curt Renshaw, runs a crank science website with an interesting take on Einstein's work. And where he made this comment about his twin sons:
December 22 at 9:09 pm
">Not only that, but his biography section, in which me mentions his two
>twin sons, "David Eugene Renshaw, PhD", and "Albert Einstein Renshaw,
>PhD", both born in *1994*, casts doubt on any other academic credentials
>that may appear anywhere in his page.
My twin sons are named as stated above. These names appear on their birth
certificates. Please explain to me how the names of my sons in any way affects
my academic credentials. I was done with school more than 10 years before they
That's right, he named his sons "David Eugene Renshaw, PhD", and "Albert Einstein Renshaw, PhD"
Oh, and it looks like Curt Renshaw himself dabbled at being a long form "expert" too.
"When one scans a document, the name of the scanner goes with the file (i.e. Epson or Xerox), and stays with the file, even during edits. In this case, the source of the file is not a scanner, but rather MAC OSX 10. This is not a scanner, it is an operating system on an Apple computer. A computer is not a scanner, thus, it appears the birth certificate was created in Photoshop on a Mac computer, presumably from imported and created images.
This is why no one can come forward and say, "I made the edits, and here is the original." There simply is no original that matches the posted item to any acceptable degree."
Depends on scanner configuration. If the scanner was set to use OS X's built-in PDF generation system, then the scanner would hand off the data to OS X's "Image Capture" application, which would then use Quartz to generate the PDF. Knowing this would require actually doing some research, rather than parroting what World Nut Daily's "experts" claim.
