In today's dispatches, Thomas MacLearan has a damp daydream about his presidency, which seems to involve as step one "using the Constitution for toilet paper". Lawrence Sellin's new home away from Helsinki home seems to be the Pest and eFail, and he's rather upset at the GOP.
The de Vattelist wing of birtherstani makes their stink known in Sen. Marco Rubio's life. Dean Haskins seems to not only want to be the birtherstani political officer, but it's chief mullah as well.
Darren Huff seems to be doing his best to screw up his defense, and Walter Fitzpatrick seems to be turning into a mobile hazmat zone. And Dr. Orly seems to think that birther bill 2.0 next year will do the trick.
18 October - Thomas MacLearan, aka "One Pissed-off Vietnam Vet" daydreams about his first State of the Union address. Assuming of course, he became president. In which case, I think he would have other things to worry about, like the sun rising in the west, plagues of locusts, flocks of winged unicorns urinating rainbows across the land, that type of thing.
"I’m here to give you my take on the current state of affairs with America, but before I do, I have requested that those who hold a direct responsibility of the sad state that this country is in be removed from the premises, which includes all members of the Supreme Court, Joint Chiefs of Staff, and elected Representatives and Senators.
While the Sergeant-at-Arms is escorting them out, I’m going to get right down to the facts. "
You mean facts like you aspire towards one-person executive branch rule without the input of the other two branches of the government??
"Starting now, the takeover of our money starts with a full, complete, and honest audit of the Fed and, even as I speak, warrants for the arrest of all of its officers have been issued and they will all be in jail tonight on the charge of fraud on the American taxpayer."
On what charges??
"We are in a World War. It’s a war between the educated and the ignorant, between the future and the past, and between freedom and slavery."
And it seems MacLearan is firmly on the side of ignorance, the past, and slavery.
"It’s a sad fact that our enemy has made such successful inroads into all of the non-Islamic countries through the astounding oil revenues that we have paid them since oil was discovered by an American in the Middle East. The West paid for and developed extraction techniques, built the pipeline and the delivery vessels required to move the crude, yet it is they who hold us hostage economically for our failure to be totally energy-independent from the oil of the Middle East.. That will end."
I smell a whiff of "kill the ragheads and take their oil" here.
"In America, our education system has deteriorated to the point where an ineligible candidate made it all the way to the White House, and those in Congress who should have spoken up, but didn’t, about the fake birth certificates and the illegal Social Security number of Obama, were elected or reelected. "
Translation - "How DARE that uppity darkie presume to be President!! Doesn't he know his place!!"
"Also, the standards of all of our institutions, from universities to firemen, have suffered because of Affirmative Action. That will end."
Ah, so much for that quaint notice of "equal rights". I smell another whiff of "let's make sure all future darkies know their rightful place!" here.
"Words like “racist” and “bigot” have no meaning, so don’t us them to incite dumb people to act dumb: it demeans all of us."
Well of course the person acting like a racist bigot thinks those words have no meaning.
"And as a final reminder, all illegal immigrants and Muslims have until the end of the year to vacate our country. Those who fail to meet the deadline we’ll confiscate all of your possessions and kick you out anyway."
So much for quant Constitutional concepts like "Freedom of Religion" and "due process".
"Thank you for listening to this speech. I think we’ll have a chance to keep our Constitution as the law of the land."
You mean "what's LEFT of the Constitution", since it's obvious a MacLearan Presidency would pretty much take a giant steaming dump over the entire Constitution.

Congratulations! The order to the Sergent-at-Arms to Go forth and Remove the “Traitors” from the Chamber is certainly the “First” Order and an important beginning to the “Restoration of our Constitution!” Where 535 Ttaitors of the Legislative, Judiciary, Military would EVER be found is a Monumental question!? It is important that all ve Vetted, and I suspect that “True Patriots” can only be found from Candidates with NO Prior “Political Ambitions”, probably “Military Patriots who honor their “Oath” to God and Country!
Compared to the Illegal, DeFacto, U.S. Corp. Government that has existed since 1871, the results would exemplify a “UTOPIA”, and the Restoration of the “Republic, for which She Stands!!
SEMPRE FI !!!"
Nothing like an illiterate call for a military coup.....
18 October - It's been almost a month since Lawrence Sellin disappeared from Canada Free Press. It looks like the Pest and eFail is his new home. And good heavens does he have a hate-on for the GOP.
First he brings up Dinesh D'Souza's widely discredited neo-colonialism slander on Obama.
"Obama indeed embraced the “Dreams from his Father.” In a 1965 paper “Problems Facing Our Socialism” published in the East Africa Journal, his Muslim father, Barack Obama Sr., proposed expanding government control, wealth seizure by the state and the confiscation of foreign owned land, all policies closely resembling those eventually implemented by President Robert Mugabe of totalitarian and moribund country of Zimbabwe.
As Dinesh D’Souza wrote and the Obama-supported Occupy Wall Street mobs are now violently expressing throughout the country:
“From a very young age and through his formative years, Obama learned to see America as a force for global domination and destruction. He came to view America’s military as an instrument of neocolonial occupation. He adopted his father’s position that capitalism and free markets are code words for economic plunder. Obama grew to perceive the rich as an oppressive class, a kind of neocolonial power within America. In his worldview, profits are a measure of how effectively you have ripped off the rest of society, and America’s power in the world is a measure of how selfishly it consumes the globe’s resources and how ruthlessly it bullies and dominates the rest of the planet.”
Recycling old tripe, eh Sellin??
"For over three years the United States has faced its gravest Constitutional crisis since the Civil War and the greatest fraud ever perpetrated on the American people."
Here's a hint - when you're at your home in Helsinki Finland calling for a civil war in the United States, you don't get you claim your paranoid conspiracy theory is the "gravest Constitutional crisis since the Civil War"
"Starting in 2008 and continuing today, Obama and the main stream media successfully intimidated the cowardly Republicans by threatening to call them names like “racist” or “birther.”
Now the Republicans are complicit in a cover-up of Obama’s crimes.
Instead of doing the right thing and working to shatter the unholy alliance perpetuating permanent political corruption, the Republican leadership has decided to do what is politically expedient, perform the role of useful idiots and help Barack Obama further damage the United States."
"Wahhh! The uppity darkie is still there, and you nasty Republicans haven't done what we demanded!!!"
"Whether with or without Obama in 2012, if the political leadership continues to subvert the Constitution and disregard the rule of law, national chaos will ensue and armed defense by a citizenry being robbed of its life and liberty by an invisible government will be inevitable."
He's still banging the insurrection and coup drum, isn't he??
20 October - The St. Petersburg Times reports on the de Vattelist wing of birtherstan, and their attempts to go after Sen. Marco Rubio and Gov. Bobby Jindal.
"Unable to prevent Barack Obama from becoming president, rigid followers of the Constitution have turned their attention to another young, charismatic politician many think could one day occupy the White House.
The birthers are calling for U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, the budding Republican star from Florida.
"It's nothing to do with him personally. But you can't change the rules because you like a certain person. Then you have no rules," said New Jersey lawyer Mario Apuzzo.
Forget about allegedly Photoshopped birth certificates; the activists are not challenging whether Rubio was born in Miami. Rather, they say Rubio is ineligible under Article 2 of the Constitution, which says "no person except a natural born citizen … shall be eligible to the Office of President."
The rub is that "natural born citizen" was never defined.
The birthers rely on writings at the time of the formation of the republic and references in court cases since then to contend that "natural born" means a person born to U.S. citizens. Rubio was born in 1971 at Cedars of Lebanon Hospital, his office said, but his parents did not become citizens until 1975."
Charles Kerchner and Dr. Orly are heard from as well.
"Solum said that became clearer with the 14th Amendment, which conferred citizenship on former slaves born in the United States (now a contentious issue involving the children of illegal immigrants.) Birthers say the amendment fortifies their case because it does not use "natural" born.
"It's a little confusing, but most scholars think it's a pretty unusual position for anyone to think the natural born citizen clause would exclude someone born in the U.S.," said Polly Price, a law professor at Emory University in Atlanta who specializes in immigration and citizenship.
Price said natural born was likely drawn from the concept that anyone born in what was once a colony was considered a subject and parental status was not a factor.
But there is sufficient muddiness to fuel the birthers, many still angry with the Republican establishment for not taking their case against Obama more seriously. Rubio was among them, saying he did not think it was an issue."
And it shouldn't be, except for the "Blut und Boden" crowd.
And in comments:
"yogiman Oct 20, 2011 1:24 AM
unit, A question on the issue is: why is Rubio so reluctant about showing his "eligibility"? If he was born an American citizen based on the 14th Amendment, he is eligible to hold any office in the US except the two highest offices in our nation, i.e. President and Vice-President. With his parents still Cuban citizens when he was born, wouldn't he have been born a dual-citizen?"
"Islandmonkey Oct 19, 2011 11:10 PM
Rubio is an anchor babyâ€¦it is no deferent whether Mexican, Ricon, Cuban, etc"
Puerto Ricans are US citizens. Racist much??
"Issywise Oct 20, 2011 9:41 AM
What a weak imitation of America America has become. Today, the birthers make obtuse constitutional arguments to campaign for American purity. We are reduced to having Sara Palin using code words like "REAL Americans" to address the issue of American mongrelization. Any 60 year old America was an adult when Jerry Falwell was still using the public broadcast airways to argue white & non-white seed shouldn't be allowed to legally mix. Thank God (the Christian one that is) for the Tea Party and the birthers. Only they understand the importance to America of keeping non-whites from gaining acceptance. A hundred years ago, America had the good sense to recognize the million incoming Norwegian immigrants as the non-whites of the time; needing to be isolated and kept from intergrating with REAL Americans: mountain Swedes. The Tea Party & the birthers may talk in code words but they are all that is defending us today from national mongrelization. God likes us best because we're white!"
Either this person is having fun, or hit every branch on the stupid tree when they fell off the top.
"terminator3 Oct 19, 2011 8:07 PM
Wonder boy LITTLE MARCO is ineligible to become VP or POTUS! Little Marco's parents were ILLEGAL ALIENS!
What will Marcocito do now that he's been exposed?
What a conniving little P O S!
Looks like his love Daddy Jebby didn't do his homework on this one!"
"Islandmonkey Oct 19, 2011 11:14 PM
not when the little monkey was born...anchor baby"
Racist a lot it seems....
20 October - Dean Haskins wants to know why churches haven't boarded the birther bandwagon.
"One of the most heartbreaking realities of contemporary Christendom is the obvious exponential decrease in its biblical discernment. While much of the civilized world has been wholly secularized, there was a remnant of believers in America that pushed against that godless agenda snatching this great Christian experiment from us."
Funny thing, but the United States was never a "great Christian experiment". Then again. Haskins did attend Bob Jones university, so I suspect the version of American History he was taught was somewhat....different......from reality.
"Sadly, if today's church were transplanted to the first century, we would likely be the ones responsible for the breeding of and caring for stadium lions. And, that is no better exemplified than by the church's virtual silence over the numerous crimes that have been committed regarding the illegal presidency of Barack Obama."
Funny I don't seem to recall anything in the Bible about "Thou shalt not allow any uppity darkies to rule your land". Must be the Gospel according to Haskins.
"That God "allowed Barack Obama to ascend to the presidency, and therefore we have no other duty but to respect him, be in subjection to him, and pray for him" is an insidious lie from the evil one. Again, that is nothing but a heinous misinterpretation of scripture. As with these constitutional crimes, God allows every form of sin to be committed, but we are certainly not to hold our tongues about the sin, nor are we not to warn about its eternal penalty. Yes, God allowed this illegal presidency, but that is different from ascribing it to being His will, for God does not trade in deceit or fraud. God does not lie to accomplish His will. God merely allows man the ability to commit those sins, and, having succumbed to the power of sin, He will turn man over to the destruction of his flesh (1 Corinthians 5:5)."
"And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins." - Mark 11:25
“Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven." - Luke 6:37
"A wicked person listens to deceitful lips; a liar pays attention to a destructive tongue." - Proverbs 17:4
Of course, Haskins may want to bear in mind:
"A lying tongue hates those it hurts, and a flattering mouth works ruin." - Proverbs 26:28
"You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye." - Matthew 7:5
"How can you say to your brother, ‘Brother, let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when you yourself fail to see the plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye." - Luke 6:42
"Those who are fighting daily for this truth to be understood and rectified are patriotic, upstanding members of society, and many are Bible-believing Christians."
"Someone might argue, “If my falsehood enhances God’s truthfulness and so increases his glory, why am I still condemned as a sinner? Why not say—as some slanderously claim that we say—“Let us do evil that good may result”? Their condemnation is just!” - Romans 3:7-8
"The types of people who are our strongest opposition can easily be seen at websites like the Fogbow and the Facebook page "Orly's World." These are most often profane, juvenile reprobates who promote just about every "religious" belief other than biblical Christianity."
I've seen a lot more real Christians at those places than Pharisees like Haskins.
"They promote a forced tolerance of every ungodly, man-made religion, while maintaining an adversarial posture toward any biblical follower of Christ (often, they even preach a "tolerance" of Islam, which is not a religion, but a political ideology bent on the destruction of western civilization)."
Bigoted much Haskins??
"One of these internet posters even goes so far as stalking those who proclaim the truth in this matter, and his unwelcome messages are often laced with profanity, school-yard taunts, and he has even promoted violence against us, "
And this differs from your behaviour on line how???
"American Patriot Terry Lakin, the former Army Lieutenant Colonel who ultimately forfeited his career and spent nearly six months in Leavenworth Prison, did so for nothing other than asking to be told the truth—is Barack Obama eligible to be our country's Commander-in-Chief? Rather than receiving a simple answer through documentation proving that he is, the truth was hidden from Terry, and he paid a tremendous price."
Actually the Army told Lakin repeatedly that Obama was the legitimate Commander in Chief, and Lakin refused to believe it.
"You boast, “We have entered into a covenant with death, with the realm of the dead we have made an agreement. When an overwhelming scourge sweeps by, it cannot touch us, for we have made a lie our refuge and falsehood our hiding place.” - Isaiah 28:15
"Right now, that Constitution is under attack, and it is that Constitution which allows believers to share the Gospel of Christ openly and freely."
Funny, but it also allows those religions you just dismissed as "false" and "man-made" equal rights to share their beliefs openly and freely as well.
"The illegal presidency of Barack Obama is just a further erosion of our Constitution by those who reject the fact that America was founded as a Christian nation and are abrogating the rule of law in this country."
"As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion,—as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquility, of Mussulmen,—and as the said States never entered into any war or act of hostility against any Mahometan nation, it is declared by the parties that no pretext arising from religious opinions shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries." - The Treaty of Tripoli, signed 4 November 1796
"In light of that, we are forming The Truth Matters Coalition—a consortium of American pastors and ministry leaders who will commit to sharing the truth with their congregations and ministries about the illegality of Barack Obama's presidency, and the unspeakable price this country will pay if we do not rise up against it."
Gee, sounds like he's wanting preaching about politics from the pulpit. How unamerican.
Hey, Haskins. 1 Timothy 3-7, 19-20
All snark aside, I've always held that the lowest of the low in birtherstan are the wannbe birther mullahs that try to use religion has an excuse for their birtherism - and/or their racism. The fact that Haskins has went down that road so overtly speaks volumes about Haskins himself. I suspect Haskins may want to consider his actions - and if he wants the words in Luke 13:27 to be the words he hears when he faces the One he professes to worship.
Because right now the words in Psalm 52:3 describe Haskins altogether too well.
20 October - Lawrence Sellin continues his disappointment jihad against the GOP.
"Ryan, like all members of Congress, care only to preserve the status quo, for American serfs to continue to pay the bills and fight the wars, so that the political royalty can maintain their power and the lavish lifestyles it brings.
The status quo:
- More than 50 percent of the members of the U.S. Congress are millionaires.
- The median wealth of a U.S. Senator in 2009 was 2.38 million dollars.
- Insider trading is perfectly legal for members of the U.S. Congress – and they refuse to pass a law that would change that.
- The percentage of millionaires in Congress is more than 50 times higher than the percentage of millionaires in the general population.
Not surprisingly, Congress will continue to treat the American people like serfs until we shout “no more” and mean it."
Wow. That sounds a lot like what we're hearing from the people in the "Occupy Wall Street" movement. Except then Sellin realizes he's about to go over that ledge:
"Corrupt politicians are tolerating the greatest fraud ever perpetrated on the American people and undermining the foundations of our country.
Republican leaders have a choice; either they can help the American people restore our republic or they can follow Obama to national Armageddon.
Choose wisely now because later we will not lift a finger to save you if you don’t."
20 October - Mother Jones Magazine also reports on the de Vattelist's and Sen. Marco Rubio.
"Kerchner isn't the the only one in his camp who believes Rubio can't be president. The queen of the birther movement, Orly Taitz, also agrees. Taitz, who's spent years in court suing Obama over his eligibility, told the St. Petersburg Times this week, "We need the court to finally adjudicate this issue, who is a natural born citizen.” Rubio, for his part, was nonchalant about becoming the birthers' newest target. "The price of our freedom and our liberty is that people can go out and spend a lot of time on stuff like this," he told the paper. "For us, the more important thing is to focus on our job."
The birthers clearly need more to work on, given the extent to which they've exhausted most avenues for challenging Obama. Rubio will certainly help fill the bill, and just in time, too, for the upcoming "birther summit" in March. Kerchner and others who've been undaunted by Obama's efforts to take the steam out of their movement are planning a "massive" rally and summit in DC, where they intend to protest Washington's "continued cover up of the fraud that has been perpetrated upon us."
20 October - Fox News Latino has a report on the de Vattelists.
(Bold face mine)
"Rubio’s office says he was born in 1971 at Cedars of Lebanon Hospital, but that his parents did not become citizens until 1975. Kerchner, according to his understanding of the Constitution, believes that makes Rubio ineligible for the office.
Alfonso Aguilar, former chief of the U.S. Office of Citizenship under the George W. Bush administration, said that claim is preposterous.
“That is absurd. It has no constitutional basis if you are born in the United States or in U.S. territory, you are a natural born citizen. Just like John McCain, who was born in U.S. territory in Panama, Marco Rubio was born in the mainland United States – it doesn’t matter who your parents are,” Aguilar, who is currently the Executive Director of the Latino Partnership for Conservative Principles, tells Fox News Latino. “I guess the birthers are not conservative. They are advancing arguments that not only have no constitutional basis but they are un-American, un-patriotic and dangerous.”"
"Juan Cartagena, president and general counsel of the civil rights organization LatinoJustice-PRLDEF, believes the birthers’ attitudes transcend the many issues addressing Latinos today because they are taking the brunt of those against birthright citizenship.
“If you start attaching conditions to the parents of the children who are born in the United States you go down a slippery slope. The bottom line is we have a country that is devised by this foundation of laws…we are flying in the face of what is considered basic human rights presets, ” he said.
“The birther movement is just an extension of whether people born in the United States should be citizens,” he added.
Cartagena believes the claims can be viewed as bigoted.
“Yes, I see this as part and parcel of differentiating people, not based on their merits but based on technical and erroneous interpretations of law,” he said."
Well of course the claims are bigoted. We're talking birthers, after all.
20 October - Walter Fitzpatrick gets pulled from his jail cell to possibly be a witness at Darren Huff's trial.
"The woman who gave The Post & Email the information about the U.S. Marshal’s Service volunteered two more words: “for court,” apparently meaning that Fitzpatrick was scheduled to testify as a witness in the trial of Darren Huff on October 18, as The Post & Email had reported. "
And he's his charming self.
"…the marshals refuse to allow him to put on street clothes…[Fitzpatrick is] shackled from head to toe. "
No sailor suit?? Oh noes!!
"The most disturbing thing was to find out that he has not bathed (whether he had a choice or not I do not know) in 28 days. My stomach sank to hear that, because I don’t know if he is doing it as part of his protest, or if they are denying him the most basic rights of any creature."
I suspect it's more Fitzpatrick either being a drama llama, or a sign of his continuing mental illness.
21 October - At Dr. Orly's House o' Malware, dope springs eternal.
"ELIGIBILITY BILL WILL BE REINTRODUCED IN LA IN TIME TO REMOVE OBAMA FROM THE BALLOT BEFORE NOVEMBER. MAKE SURE, WE REINTRODUCE THE BILL IN EVERY STATE
Posted on | October 21, 2011 |
Darryl L. Minter, Chief Technology Officer to me
show details 7:37 AM (25 minutes ago)
Yes, I saw that. And absolutely, Donna and I will support you in running for the Senate position. I just spoke with Representative Seabaugh’s office. He and Senator Crowe will be reintroducing their LA Federal Elections Law in March 2012."
Considering that every single such bill failed to be passed or signed into law last year, it's hard to see why she thinks thinks will be different this time around.
21 October - The Orange County Weekly comments on the de Vattelist jihad.
"But who? It had to be someone aspiring to the presidency or vice-presidency ... foreign-ish ... accent would be a plus ... medium complexion ... last name ends in a vowel....
Hey, what about that Marco Rubio character, the Republican senator from Florida? Did I say from Florida? That's what he wants you to think!
According to the St. Petersburg Times, birther lawyer litigant Charles Kerchner got his hands on the naturalization petitions by Rubio's parents, who had emigrated to Miami from Cuba in 1956. They didn't become citizens until 1975. Now, that doesn't matter here in the real world. Rubio was born in the U.S., and is eligible for the presidency--or, as many in Republican circles had been hoping, the vice-presidency first, and sooner rather than later.
Of course, in the xenophobic whackadoodle realm of Birtherstan, the term natural-born is up for debate. Our own Orly told the St. Pete Times, "We need the court to finally adjudicate this issue, who is a natural-born citizen." Her position is, since his parents weren't citizens, Rubio is ineligible for the presidency."
21 October - At his trial Darren Huff isn't helping himself much.
"It's hard to get employment when you're under federal indictment," said Huff, 41. "I refuse to be intimidated. All I can do is still have a voice."
Huff is accused of being an extremist member of the Georgia militia and the Oathkeepers, a group of retired military men willing to go armed to uphold the U.S. Constitution. Officials contend Huff went armed to Madisonville in April 2010 with the intent to take over the Monroe County Courthouse if necessary to carry out arrests of a slew of local and federal officials.
Authorities further allege that Huff believes President Barack Obama is not a "natural-born citizen" of the United States, that he's ineligible to hold office and that he plotted to take over Madisonville after a grand jury there refused to indict Obama.
Huff continued taking the stand in the own defense this morning, continuing his testimony from Thursday. Closing arguments are expected this afternoon."
21 October - Darren Huff digs himself deeper.
"Darren Wesley Huff of Dallas, Ga., during cross examination on the fourth day of his federal trial in Knoxville, said Friday: "This is the most humiliating thing I have ever been through."
Oh come on. The jury hasn't yet heard about your remote-controlled pink plastic dildo that the authorities gave you back. Just wait until that and your DVD of "Trannie Hunters" comes up in the case........
