In today's dispatches, Zampolit Haskins has a grumpy. Walter Fitzpatrick has a grumpy. "Ulsterman" has a delusion.
Lolli Lolli Lolli has an an angry angry angry. Sharon Rondeau has a cheat. Lawrence Sellin has a treason.
And last but not least, Rick Perry has a fan.
5 September - Zampolit Haskins seems to be upset that Colin Powell didn't accept his insultingly low offer to get paid $15,000 in exchange for birthers preaching the Word of Dean at him for three hours.
"In a recent NPR interview, Gen. Colin Powell stated, "The president had to produce his birth certificate because there was still this coterie of people in the country who won't believe. And even after he produced his long-form birth certificate, and Mr. Trump decided he better find another thing to do besides run for president, there are still people who don't accept that.In fact, as you may have noticed, some people are trying to persuade me to listen to their arguments as to why he is not a citizen, and I don't choose to participate in that any longer. We've spent enough time on this issue. President Obama was born in the United States. He was born in Hawaii. He's shown his certificates, and the rest of this is just conspiratorial nonsense.""
"As to any notion that Gen. Powell might not have been speaking specifically about The Birther Summit's challenge of him, it can be concluded easily that he would not have been speaking about any other group, as The Birther Summit is the only one that has publicly challenged him to such a discussion."
Yeah, I'm sure Washington Speakers Bureau passed on Haskins insultingly low offer, Gen. Powell laughed it off, and continued on his way. (Of course, he could have also noticed the juvenile jokes Haskins was making about Gen. Powell's first name and decided that Haskins simply wasn't serious.)
"As to his original comments, it is clear that Gen. Powell is still running cover for Barack Obama, as his statement is devoid of fact. First, it is apparent to many Americans that what Barack Obama released on April 27, 2011 was a blatantly cheap computer-generated image that was not a scan, copy, or photograph of any real document."
By "many Americans" he means his small coterie of birthers. As for "real document", the State of Hawaii seems to disagree with Haskins......
"Here is retired Commander Charles Kerchner's response to Gen. Powell's comments"
"Powell had a highly successful military career up to this time and this incident and challenge. However, he is failing the call of duty and honor in not confronting the usurper in the White House who is trampling on the U.S. Constitution and presents a great danger to our national security. Powell is failing to provide honest and honorable leadership to support and defend the U.S. Constitution and the Rule of Law and live up to his commissioned officer’s oath at a critical time in our nation’s history. History will not be too kind to General Powell for what he has and has not done on the issue of exposing Obama’s true legal identity and criminal activities and that he is instead acting and speaking in ways to facilitate the original fraud and the continuing cover-up.
I once admired and respected General Collin Powell. I no longer do. If I met him in his uniform at this point in time, I would salute the uniform but not the man! At some point in his life Powell has allowed the Washington DC political cesspool to totally corrupt him and any sense of honor he once had during his military career. He is disgracing and dishonoring his oath to the U.S. Constitution.”"
Translation - "How DARE that uppity black general not do what we DEMAND and get rid of the uppity black man in the WHITE House!!!!"
"Additionally, Lt. Commander Walt Fitzpatrick (Ret) has done extensive work to expose the numerous commissions of treason committed by Barack Obama, which causes one to wonder how a decorated military hero like Gen. Colin Powell could be so unaware of the multiple dubious issues surrounding someone to whom he openly lends his loyal support,"
Maybe because Gen. Powell has better things to do then listen to the paranoid rantings of a court-martialed ex-Navy officer who was convicted of helping himself to his shipmate's money and retired as a Lt. Commander??
7 September - Looks like Walter Fitzpatrick was making a pest of himself at the courthouse again.
"The assistant clerk, Renee Ezell, told Fitzpatrick that if he didn’t sign “the paperwork,” he could not speak to the grand jury. Deputies Pat Wilson and Michael Morgan then arrived and threatened Fitzpatrick with removal if he didn’t sign it. They physically “laid hands” on him and “threw him down the stairs” of the courthouse."
The funny thing is that the audio Fitzpatrick provides tends to suggest otherwise. It sounds more like Fitzpatrick was harassing and abusing the clerk, the deputies asked him to leave, and then escorted him off the property. And Fitzpatrick also needs to see someone about his breathing issues - or his anger issues if he's simply hyperventilating. He's working himself up to a heart attack at this rate.
"Fitzpatrick went in person to report the incident and that of August 24 to the FBI later on September 7. He reported that he mentioned that The Post & Email has been investigating the corruption in Monroe County for some time, and the duty agent’s response was, “Oh, yes, we know about The Post & Email.”
I'm sure they do. And I'm sure he was rolling his eyes when he said this.
7 September - "Ulsterman" makes crap up again
(Bold face mine)
"Wall Street: Bundlers…your friend would know that term very well. They hunt and gather campaign funds for a particular candidate or cause. Wall Street represents a significant sum of those dollars. Very significant. Perhaps the only ones who can directly rival the labor unions – who I consider among the most vile and evil operators of American politics. Can you imagine attempting to unionize our American military? And for such a consideration to be made by an administration…it is appalling how dangerous the mindset of the Obama people has become. Almost as appalling as how many of us didn’t see it all coming our way.
Ulsterman: Stop right there. Did you just say that the Obama administration wants to unionize the American military?
Wall Street: Oh my – look at you now! That’s got you a bit riled does it?
Ulsterman: Are you being serious?
Wall Street: Oh yes. Absolutely serious. A bit over a year…perhaps a year-and-a-half ago. A younger gentleman who was said to be with the administration – affiliated with the DOJ actually – these people were crawling all over everything at that time. That situation itself was enough to sour many of us on the Obama White House. They would walk in as if they owned you. Wall Street had become a plantation. Ironic, isn’t it? But that’s how it felt. It’s improved somewhat, but not enough. Not nearly enough…"
"Wall Street" seems to be another voice in "Ulsterman's" head And the "plantation" line is.....interesting.
"Ulsterman: Stick to what you said about the military please. Unionizing the military. What was that about? What did that person say?
Wall Street: It wasn’t this office mind you. But a close associate. And it has been repeated by a few others, so I consider it quite likely it was in fact said. Now how high up in the administration it actually goes…that is more uncertain…"
So a friend of a friend of a friend.....
"Wall Street: As I did say – the administration wants to unionize the American military. All of it. They apparently, if what this gentleman said is to be believed,…they wish to see the soldiers “justly represented”. That was the term that was repeated to me by more than one source. It had…the conversation had originated as one about unionizing Wall Street workers and then the information about the military – the actual plan for unionizing the military came out.
Ulsterman: And this person – they were from the Department of Justice?
Wall Street: Yes…an affiliation of the DOJ, yes."
Why am I having problems believing any of this??
Oh, right, because it's Ulsterman.
8 September - William Lolli Lolli Lolli (get your fruitcakes here) does a "Birther Self-Assessment" at the Pest and eFail. Which is basically "how to cope with three years of complete and utter failure".
"As the Birther Movement begins to enter its fourth year in its efforts to expose the Obama cabal’s usurpation of political power in the United States by the willful undermining of Constitutional law, it is as good a time as ever to step back and assess ourselves in the light of all that we have learned in the context of the larger scope of our struggle for truth."
That assumes birthers have the ability to learn from their mistakes. So far the evidence seems to say "no".
"When this movement first started, many, if not all of us, entered naively into the enterprise of questioning, then demanding, the public release and validation of the credentials of Barack Obama to hold the office of POTUS. "
Followed by "rejecting anything that was released and validated".
"These requests and demands morphed into legal and societal debates as to the origin and definition of the Article 2, Section 1 term “natural born Citizen.”
You mean the attempt to rewrite the Constitution to try and exclude the scary black man??
"In the early years of 2007–2008, these public debates and legal challenges were met with expected resistance from the Obama-as-candidate side of the spectrum, but it was a puzzling matter to experience increasing resistance from the Republican, Tea Party and conservative think-tank quarters."
Maybe because they realized you were all a bunch of conspiracy nutters and didn't want to get the crazy splashed on them??
"Jurisprudential challenges were slow in progressing as well, but within two years after the election, the widespread prejudicial bias at all levels within the third branch of government became clear: "
Wow, I didn't know "rule of law" was an example of prejudicial bias in the court system.
"For brevity’s sake, I shall not recount here the already well-known and valiant efforts of Apuzzo, Taitz, Turner, LaRocque, Rondeau, WND.com, Barnett, Brooks, Donofrio, Lakin, Manning, Daniels, Mullins, Vogt, Haskins, Berg, Adams, and more."
Oh come on. You can sum up all of them with the words "complete and utter failure".
"Kudos now completed, this brings us to the present. And the present is now being defined by the 20 forensic specialists who have confirmed that Obama’s long-form birth certificate is a forgery"
More like "...defined by the 0 forensic specialists and 20 birther cranks who have confirmed...."
"All this opposition naturally provokes a frustration and anger that is palpable within our community. We continually ask ‘How is it that the truth never gets out’, or if it does get out, ‘why people that are sworn to uphold the law do not do so?’
Simple. What the birthers believe as "truth" doesn't withstand the light of day in the reality-based community, and is quickly disproven as opinion, myth, lies, and unsupported conspiracy theories.
"Before doing so, it is important to note that these “structural constituencies” that support Obama and his immediate circle consider him (and them) expendable; that is, at the point that Obama fails to enhance the delivery of their mutual objectives, Obama & Company will be removed from office with expedition. In this, the Birther Movement may become a tool used by The Powers That Be [TPTB] to further their globalist objectives, but more on this later."
So the birthers themselves are a tool of the New World Order?? Cool!!
"First, let us recognize that ours is a moral struggle and that the truth is on our side.
I cannot begin to overemphasize the magnitude of that previous claim, since it contains all the power we need to win: We have the truth.
Because there is a God, and He is Almighty, it is a self-evident truth that He is seriously concerned with the moral health of the universe. As such, truth has a power all its own."
Truth IS powerful. However the birthers do not and never have had the truth on their side.
"Could it be that too many of God’s true children, and especially the preachers, are sinning against God by guilty silence? When those whose eyes are opened by the touch of Christ become vocal and active, God may begin to fight again on the side of truth [emphasis added].
Because we have the truth and our struggle is a moral struggle, it is also God’s struggle. Thus we need not become frustrated when our efforts fail to yield obvious outcomes, since we are participants in a far greater struggle than our own."
Sp Lolli Lolli Lolli is casting this now as a religious struggle? Fair enough, the birthers do share many of the same aspects that a cult does.
"Third, let us reassess our resources: We have no money, no political power, no media access, no national or international platform, no access to the courts, no ear of law enforcement, and no regard from any legislative body."
Wow. Sucks to be you.
8 September - Oh now this is going to be....interesting:
"I am republishing this 2009 post as background for tonight’s (9/8/11) Revolution Radio show, where Sharon Rondeau guest hosts and interviews Red Beckman on the fraudulent 16th Amendment. "
Rondeau playing the tax protestor game ??
9 September - From his home in Helsinki, Finland, Lawrence Sellin gives his opinion on Obama's jobs speech.
"In his speech to a joint session of Congress, Barack Hussein Obama did not present a jobs plan; he left a suicide note."
"His vision of America was shaped by Marxist anti-colonialism, the radical philosophy of unrepentant terrorist Bill Ayers, the avarice of predatory financier George Soros and the corrupt politics of the Chicago machine."
Was there a right-wing crank talking point you DIDN'T include in that sentence??
"How can they get rid of Obama without him unleashing violent flash mobs, Black Panthers, radical leftist and union thugs on the general public?"
Ah, there's the rest of the talking points!!
You know, it's hard for me to take someone who has been calling for insurrection, military coups, and armed revolt seriously when they whine about " violent flash mobs, Black Panthers, radical leftist and union thugs". Though he's got enough racist dog whistles there to call an entire pack of Ku Klux Kollies.
"Up until now, the political establishment had decided to let Obama run in 2012 and get beaten by an establishment Republican, preferably a Republican-in-name-only."
Be amusing to see Selllin's reaction if Obama wins against that "establishment Republican, preferably a Republican-in-name-only"
"Sadly for the political establishment, the American people will not let them bury all that nasty Obama business because it would also mean burying our Constitution and endorsing permanent corruption in our government.
Soon the American people will force the political establishment to realize that Obama is now “shovel ready.”
"Shovel ready" eh?? Lawrence Sellin wouldn't happen to be hinting or suggesting that someone take some.....terminal action shall we say.....against President Obama??
9 September - Looks like Rick Perry has a fan....
"At Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s (R) campaign stop in Orange County yesterday, an inauspicious character made a surprise appearance: “birther queen” Orly Taitz. Taitz, who has earned infamy for her long-held conspiracy theory that President Obama was not born in the United States, stood near the stage with a large sign reading “Go Perry 2012″.
Standing in the rope line after Perry’s speech, Taitz spoke with the Texas governor as he wrote on her sign, “♥ Rick Perry”. Audio of the exchange was difficult to make out, but according to Taitz, she told Perry that he will “get Obama” and “will have him in prison for Social Security fraud.” Taitz was confident that Perry was receptive to her message."
More than likely he was humouring the crazy lady....assuming he ever knew who Dr. Orly was.
"Taitz also told ThinkProgress that she’s “pretty sure [the Perry campaign] will” bring up the birth certificate issue, but she said their strategy “will be to wait and use it at the last possible moment to make sure that there is no primary challenger in the Democrat Party.”
This according to the nitrous-addled rats in her forebrain??
"According to Taitz, she was “invited by local leadership of GOP” to the event, which was indeed held by the Orange County GOP."
Translation - she was on a mailing list.
