In today's dispatches, Jules Manson got a talking-to by the Secret Service. Dr. Orly demands judges take note of her Keyes/Barnett v Obama case the day before said case is kicked to the curb by the appeals court. Looks like Walter Fitzpatrick sent on the papers he stole from Monroe County to a certain sedition-minded harpist.
Connerat v Obama gets kicked to the curb in Florida. Dean Haskins and Dr. Orly compete to see who can sink to the bottom of the sewer faster. Tribble fetishist Donald Trump hints at stealing the nutcase vote from the GOP. Some birthers are just waiting for the "n**ger necktie" approach to politics.
Lawrence Sellin continues projecting his own hatred, racism, and paranoia on his opponents. Van Irion doesn't want any Orly splashing on his de Vattelist birther ballot jihad case. And professional seditionist Sharon Rondeau shows her knowledge of theology is just as narrow and fake as her knowledge of civics, the law, or the Constitution.
21 December - Yes indeed, Jules Manson got an extra special visit from the Secret Service.
"Manson is now apologizing for the posting, saying he has no intention of harming Obama or his family.
He says Secret Service agents came to his house on Monday and searched his car and residence.
They also interviewed him and his family members."
21 December - Dr. Orly demands that the judges at the 9th Circuit Court handling the birther civil war case take note of her Keyes/Barnett v Obama case in the court of appeals. (Malware and redirect warning)
"Both cases reveal the same pattern of sabotage, obstruction of justice by the employees of the court, by a couple of the same attorneys, as well as a pattern of harassment and persecution of an attorney and a pattern, where convicted forgers and other criminals are being used as a tool by licensed attorneys and possibly high ranking governmental officials and employees of the court in order to derail a case of national importance Barnett, Keyes et al v Obama et al 10-55084. It is also done to undermine attorney Orly Taitz, who is representing plaintiffs in Barnett, Keyes et al v Obama et al 10-55084 and in the case at hand, who is leading prosecution of a number of cases dealing with lack of eligibility of Mr. Obama to the U.S. Presidency due to lack of Constitutional eligibility as well as his use of a CT Social Security number, which was never assigned to him according to E-Verify and his use of a computer generated forgery instead of a valid long form birth certificate. Both cases represent pieces of the same puzzle, which is larger, than Watergate."
I think she's confusing her cases….
Though the judges taking note of her use of illegally-obtained "evidence" could be fun...
21 December - At the Pest and eFail, Professional Seditionist Sharon Rondeau continues her vendetta against Monroe County for daring to lock up Walter Fitzpatrick.
"I am editor of the electronic newspaper The Post & Email (www.thepostemail.com) and have been actively investigating judicial and law enforcement corruption in your state for the last two years."
No, you're the main writer of a hack-eyed blog with delusions of adequacy,
"There is smoking-gun evidence on my desk which demonstrates, without a doubt, the corruption of the judges, court personnel and sheriff’s department in Monroe and McMinn Counties. "
O RLY?? Would that have anything to do with, oh, I dunno, the documents Fitzpatrick stole and they couldn't find in his house??
"I have the documents in my hands which answer that question and am willing to testify by secure video hookup if necessary. "
"Secure video hookup" Dramatic much??
21 December - In Flordia, Connerat v Obama gets the boot.
(Scribd link here)
"The plaintiff asserts “unique standing to bring forth this civil action.” The“unique standing” arises purportedly from the plaintiff’s “considerable expense” in obtaining the “tacit admission of ineligibility” from the President. However,spending money to support a lawsuit fails to establish the discrete injury-in-factnecessary for Article III standing. Fair Housing Council of Suburban Philadelphia v. Montgomery Newspapers , 141 F.3d 71, 79 (3d Cir. 1998) (citing Spann v. Colonial Village, Inc. , 899 F.2d 24, 27 (D.C. Cir. 1990) (“An organization cannot, of course,manufacture the injury necessary to maintain a suit from its expenditure of resourceson that very suit. Were the rule otherwise, any litigant could create injury in fact by bringing a case, and Article III would present no real limitation.”)). This action fails for lack of Article III standing.The plaintiff’s motion (Doc. 3) for summary judgment is DENIED , and this action is DISMISSED . The Clerk is instructed to (1) terminate any pending motion and (2) close the case.ORDERED in Tampa, Florida, on December 21, 2011."
21 December - Yep, it looks like Fitzpatrick sent the stolen documents to Sharon Rondeau.
"The Post & Email has received two packets of information, one of which contained juror instructions on Clerk Martha M. Cook’s personalized stationery:"
"Other information received dealt with “Jury Service, Excused Absences & Compensation.”
Arriving in their own envelope were the following, except that all of the personal information was visible:"
And apparently, they KNOW Sharon Rondeau has it:
"Our local FBI office was not interested in seeing the evidence and deferred to the Knoxville, TN division, so we contacted them as well as the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation. Both agencies had been named as having been called upon to assist the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department in searching the home of Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III, who was accused of “taking grand jury documents” after Clerk Martha Cook “noticed it was missing.”
From: Sharon Rondeau

So we can add "receiving stolen property" along with "professional seditionist" to Rondeau's name.
22 December - Loren of the debunking blog "Barackryphal" catches Swiftboat liar Jerome Corsi stealing from others work.
"I emailed Corsi for comment, including to ask for the names of his 'researchers' or a copy of their 'report.' I received no response.
In the event that the online version of Corsi's article should disappear or be altered, I have preserved a PDF printout of the article at Scribd.
Finally, while the straight lifting of text from the Evening Standard is egregious, and the rewording of quotations from the AFP is suspicious, Corsi's attribution of all this material to his unnamed 'WND researchers in Kenya' is most troublesome. Corsi regularly relies on unnamed phantom "sources" from Kenya and Hawaii. Corsi's actions here, claiming that copied material was actually spoken directly to his anonymous "sources," should not just call into question the credibility of his "sources"; it should seriously call into doubt whether they even EXIST."
22 December - The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has upheld the decision in Keyes/Barnett v Obama
(PDF to decision here)
As a bonus, we have a list of the active duty and retired military personnel who signed on to Dr. Orly and Gary Kreep's load of crap. (Besides fake black army captain Pam Barnett.)
"Lieutenant Colonel RICHARD NORTON BAUERBACH; Captain ROBIN D. BIRON; Colonel JOHN D. BLAIR;
Captain HARRY G. BUTLER;
Chief Warrant Officer THOMAS S. DAVIDSON;
Lieutenant JASON FREESE;
Commander DAVID FULLMER LAROQUE;
MIL Officer LITA M. LOTT, U.S. Army; Major DAVID GRANT MOSBY; MSGT STEVEN KAY NEUENSCHWANDER;
SFC E7 ROBERT LEE PERRY; Colonel HARRY RILEY; Sergeant JEFFREY WAYNE ROSNER; MSGT JEFFREY SCHWILK; Captain DAVID SMITHEY; Lieutenant Commander JOHN BRUCE STEIDEL; Commander DOUGLAS EARL STOEPPELWERTH;
Captain NEIL B. TURNER; LCDR JEFF GRAHAM WINTHROPE; Lieutenant Colonel MARK WRIGGLE,"
And the political birthers:
"Representative GLENN CASADA, Tennessee;
Representative TIMOTHY COMERFORD, New Hampshire;
Representative CYNTHIA DAVIS, Missouri;
State Representative TIMOTHY JONES, Esq., Missouri;
Representative FRANK NICELEY, Tennessee; Retired Senator JERRY O’NEIL, Montana;
Representative ERIC SWAFFORD, Tennessee;"
As for the ruling itself:
"Plaintiffs-Appellants contend that Barack Obama is constitutionally ineligible to be President of the United States. United States District Court Judge David O. Carter dismissed Plaintiffs’ constitutional claims, as well as their claims for declaratory and injunctive relief, for lack of standing. We affirm the dismissal for lack of standing, albeit on somewhat different reasoning than that of the District Court."
"Plaintiffs claim that President Obama is ineligible for the presidency under Article II, Section 1 of the United States Constitution, which states that “No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President.” U.S. Const. art. II, § 1, cl. 4.(2)"
Note footnote 2. Remember the birthers claiming that Wong Kim Ark didn't establish who was a "Natural Born Citizen"???
"2 Constitution, Section 1 states, “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States . . . .” In United States v. Wong Kim Ark, the Supreme Court held that the Citizenship Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment conferred citizenship on anyone born in the United States, regardless of his parents’ citizenship. 169 U.S. 649, 650 (1898)."
Seems the court disagrees with the birthers….
"The District Court assumed, without deciding, that plaintiffs who were political candidates in the 2008 election could potentially show an injury-in-fact based on their claim that they were denied a fair competition during the election because they had to compete with someone who was ineligible to be President.
But the District Court concluded that neither they nor any other plaintiffs could satisfy the redress ability requirement of standing, because the remedy they sought—a determination that President Obama is ineligible to be President and, therefore, his removal from office—would be beyond the power of the federal courts to grant, and implicates the political question doctrine and separation of powers."
This seems to shoot down one of Dr. Orly's major claims in not only this case, but the various birther ballot jihad cases as well.
They broke down the reasoning for both active and retired military. For active-duty:
"Like the council members in South Lake Tahoe, Freese has failed to assert any concrete injury. The notion that he will be disciplined by the military for obeying President Obama’s orders is entirely speculative. He might be disciplined for disobeying those orders, but he has an “available course of action which subjects [him] to no concrete adverse consequences” – he can obey the orders of the Commander-in-Chief. S. Lake Tahoe, 625 F.2d at 237. In the absence of a concrete injury, Freese asserts nothing more than an abstract constitutional grievance that, far from being particularized to him, is shared by all citizens generally. See id. (“The fundamental premise of Schlesinger . . . is that a litigant’s standing cannot be based on the ‘generalized interest of all citizens in constitutional governance.’” (quoting Schlesinger, 418 U.S. at 217)). Thus, Freese and other active duty military personnel plaintiffs have no standing to bring this lawsuit."
As for retired military?
"The retired and inactive military personnel’s assertion of standing is far too speculative and conjectural. See Lujan, 504 U.S. at 560-61; see also Kerchner v. Obama, 612 F.3d 204, 208 (3d Cir. 2010) (rejecting, as conjectural, a naval reserve officer’s assertion of standing to challenge President Obama’s qualifications for the presidency, where the officer asserted standing on the grounds that he might be required to serve the Commander-in-Chief in the case of an extreme national emergency). Plaintiffs’ alleged injuries are neither actual nor imminent. Plaintiffs, moreover, rely on the same oath taker’s standing we have rejected as too abstract and generalized. Like the active military personnel, this category of plaintiffs lacks standing."
Strike two. Kerchner and Apuzzo must be screaming like gelded cattle right now.
As for state reps??
"We noted that whether the officials could in fact be subject to civil liability was dependent on “multiple contingencies,” including the likelihood of any civil suit and the question whether the official would be immune from any such suit. Id. at 239. The alleged harm to the state representatives in this case is just as speculative and conjectural as in South Lake Tahoe, for similar reasons. This group of plaintiffs therefore fails to establish standing. See Lujan, 504 U.S. at 560-61."
"Plaintiffs have shown no such nexus between the constitutional requirement that the President be a natural born citizen and any challenged spending provision or action. In fact, Plaintiffs have not challenged any spending action at all.
Plaintiffs did not show anything but a “generalized grievance” insufficient to establish standing. And they challenge only the President’s executive actions generally, not any discrete expenditure allegedly banned by a particular constitutional provision. Therefore, this group also fails to establish standing."
And political candidates??
"The District Court was mistaken in assuming, however, that the political candidates still had an interest in a fair competition at the time the complaint was filed. The original complaint was filed on January 20, 2009, at 3:26 p.m. Pacific Standard Time, after President Obama was officially sworn in as President."
So much for Dr. Orly's claim it was filed beforehand.
"Once the 2008 election was over and the President sworn in, Keyes, Drake, and Lightfoot were no longer “candidates” for the 2008 general election. Moreover, they have not alleged any interest in running against President Obama in the future. Therefore, none of the plaintiffs could claim that they would be injured by the “potential loss of an election.” Owen, 640 F.2d at 1132. Plaintiffs’ competitive interest in running against a qualified candidate had lapsed.4 Similarly, Robinson’s interest as an elector—derived from the competitive interest of his preferred candidates—was extinguished by the time the complaint was filed.
For the foregoing reasons, the political candidates failed to establish redress ability sufficient to establish standing. They cannot claim competitive standing because they were no longer candidates when they filed their complaint."
Strike three and out.
"Moreover, the United States District Court for the District of Columbia has now weighed in with respect to the reach of the D.C. Code quo warrant provisions. In Taitz v. Obama, 707 F. Supp. 2d 1, 2-4 (D.D.C. 2010), the District Court for the District of Columbia stated that “a quo warrant action against a public official may be brought only by the Attorney General or the U.S. Attorney.” Id. at 3 (citing Andrade v. Lauer, 729 F.2d 1475, 1498 (D.C. Cir. 1984))."
Don't you just love how Dr. Orly's own worst enemy is Dr. Orly Taitz??
"Plaintiffs did not, however, plead any RICO allegations and only stated that they “have accumulated several dossiers of evidence against [Obama] which suggest . . . that the President and his allies and some of the co-defendants in this case may have committed, or still be in the process of committing, some fairly serious violations of U.S. law.” Plaintiffs instead expressly reserved, in their First Amended Complaint, pleadings under RICO for their Second Amended Complaint due to the “complexity of RICO pleading. (6)
In other words, Dr. Orly's enlarged exhibits. How did that work for them??
"The District Court dismissed these claims against Defendants Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, and Robert Gates for failure to state a claim under Rule 12(b)(6), noting that Plaintiffs had six months between the original complaint and the amended complaint to attempt to set forth civil RICO allegations. The District Court found Plaintiffs’ “failure to do so inexcusable.” Given Plaintiffs’ express statements reserving their RICO allegations, the District Court was justified in finding that Plaintiffs had “failed to state any claim whatsoever” against any defendants other than President Obama."
So much for that idea, eh Dr. Orly??
"The District Court properly dismissed the plaintiffs’ constitutional claims for lack of Article III standing. Moreover, the District Court did not err in dismissing Plaintiffs’ quo warrant, FOIA, or RICO claims. Accordingly, the dismissal by the District Court is AFFIRMED.
Appellants’ emergency petition for writ of mandamus, filed November 8, 2011, is DENIED."
Cue Dr. Orly scream "Traitors! Appeal!! Squawk!!" at the top of her nitrous-abused lungs.
22 December - The LA Times reports on the Keyes/Barnett v Obama decision being upheld.
"None of the plaintiffs who filed suit on Inauguration Day 2009 can show that they’ve suffered any harm from the Obama presidency that would give them the right to sue him, a three-judge panel of the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals said Thursday in dismissing the lawsuit.
Even the candidates who lost to Obama in 2008 would have had standing to sue only if they had filed their complaint alleging unfair competition from an ineligible candidate before the election, the judges said.
Among those challenging Obama's eligibility for the presidency is Wiley Drake, a Buena Park minister who once called on his First Southern Baptist flock to pray for Obama's death, and the American Independent Party's 2008 presidential candidate, Alan Keyes.
The birthers’ allegations that Obama was born abroad and has falsified his identity documents for decades were aired at a packed hearing at the 9th Circuit courthouse in Pasadena in May, just days after the president released a copy of his birth certificate issued by the Honolulu hospital where he was born on Aug. 4, 1961."
And is it over?? Oh of course not.
"In three years, not one single court has stated that Barack Obama is a legitimate president, no court has verified that the Social Security number he uses was assigned to him, no court has validated his birth certificate," said Orly Taitz, a Russian-born dentist and lawyer representing 40 of the plaintiffs, including Keyes, in the suit against Obama. "All the courts are simply passing the buck, kicking the can by saying they have no jurisdiction and that the plaintiffs have no standing."
Taitz said the only reason Obama and his supporters refuse to provide her with the original copy of his birth certificate is because "they know it’s a forgery and they will have to go to prison."
She said she would petition the 9th Circuit for review of the case by a full 11-judge panel."
Good luck with that skippy.
And in comments:
"Pauli Gela · Top Commenter · Cal Western
If he is an illegal alien Kenyan mamaaluke fascist, then it would be a good thing to send him back."
"Peter Fenn · Top Commenter · North High
At present there are five or six open-and-shut cases filed which would immediately terminate the US Presidency of Barack Obama. Each has majority support on Capitol Hill. The delay in implementing them has to do with disagreements among Senators, Congressmen and the Pentagon about what, or who, will occupy the downstream vacuum after Obama's removal.
In addition to the élite deceptions swirling around Obama's fake American birth qualification and the provenance of his stolen Connecticut Social Security Number, there are mature legal depositions relating to US President's slush funds at the Vatican Bank and Banco Santander in Europe, and to Obama's unlawful entangling of America in the NATO Libyan invasion.

Dream the impossible dream…..
22 December - NPR reports on the Dr. Orly/Kreep smack down.
"Today, the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that a group of so-called "birthers," or people who believe President Obama was not born in the United States, have no legal standing to bring the case to court.
As the AP says, birthers have filed several similar suits, but have lost at U.S. Supreme Court and the California Supreme Court."
And, it turns out, the claim is a copy and past from the Pest and eFail. on 13 December 2011
Wonderful to see how he's representing his state district…..
22 December - Birther Report takes note of the 9th Circuit rejection of Keyes/Barnett v Obama.
We have some grumpy birthers.
"HalfWhiteHalfKenyan said…[Reply] This is the craziest and most insane thing I have ever witnessed in my life.

The only reason an illegal is in the WH is because we have, thus far, allowed it. It should be 1000% obvious there is no more justice. Only by marching and surrounding the capitol with marching orders to arrest anyone in D.C., will this be resolved. There is no more law and order. Forget about NH and Georgia. Forget about any court attempts seeking justice. I'm telling all of you it's over. Soetoro will remain in the WH until we have enough balls and guts to go get him. I honestly don't know whats keeping us from gathering now in Washington and storming the WH. The problem has been thrown before us. Response from Washington is, "We dare ya."

Ah, so the solution is completely ignoring the law, and getting a huge lynch mob to storm the White House and "take care of that uppity darkie"??
Oh, and some nasty birther infighting:
"Anonymous said…[Reply] Over at Orly's site, she says she got an e-mail from Dean Haskins. He's mad because she subpoenaed Virginia's LFBC.
I hope this isn't the big lawsuit he's been promising as it is a failure even if he gets the copy of the LFBC.
December 22, 2011 10:27 PM"
So are both Dr. Orly AND Dean Haskins showing how utterly classless they are by harassing the family of that poor child?? As if they haven't suffered enough??
22 December - In the Washington Post
"Judge Harry Pregerson, writing for the three-judge panel, said Keyes and Drake waited too long to file their lawsuit. The election was over and Obama was already sworn in when the lawsuit was filed.
“Once the 2008 election was over and the President sworn in, Keyes, Drake, and Lightfoot were no longer ‘candidates’ for the 2008 general election,” Pregerson wrote. “Plaintiffs’ competitive interest in running against a qualified candidate had lapsed.”
Orly Taitz, one of the challengers’ lawyers, said she would ask the appeals court to convene a special 11-judge panel to reconsider the case. If she’s turned down there, she said she would ask the U.S. Supreme Court to review the case.
Taitz said she has filed similar lawsuits in five states and has two other federal appeals pending in Washington, D.C."
22 December - And US Election News
"The plaintiffs in the case called Drake v. Obama, 09-56827 were not able to show “concrete injury” for their allegations, therefore they had no legal standing in their claims and so the case was tossed out. The decision of the appeals court does not address the authenticity of Obama’s birth certificate, however.
Alan Keyes, the former 2008 independent candidate Alan Keyes, is one of many plaintiffs who filed suit January 20, 2009, the same day President Obama was sworn into office.
Many “birther” cases have been filed since the start of Obama’s presidency, all of which have been unsuccessful."
22 December - And law.com
"The unanimous opinion written by Judge Harry Pregerson affirms U.S. District Judge David Carter of the Central District, who had tossed the suit. Also on the panel were Judges Raymond Fisher and Marsha Berzon.
The plaintiffs in Drake v. Obama, 09-56827, include 2008 independent presidential candidate Alan Keyes, who filed suit the day Obama was sworn into office.
Gary Kreep of Romana and Orly Taitz of Rancho Santa Margarita represent the plaintiffs. Los Angeles Assistant U.S. Attorney David DeJute appeared for the government."
22 December - And Courthouse News Service
" The panel found this and all of the various plaintiffs' other arguments unconvincing.
"The notion that he will be disciplined by the military for obeying President Obama's orders is entirely speculative," Judge Harry Pregerson wrote for the court. "He might be disciplined for disobeying those orders, but he has an 'available course of action which subjects [him] to no concrete adverse consequences' - he can obey the orders of the commander-in-chief. In the absence of a concrete injury, Freese asserts nothing more than an abstract constitutional grievance that, far from being particularized to him, is shared by all citizens generally." (Emphasis in original.)
The judges similarly rejected arguments for standing put forth by Keyes and other candidates in the 2008 presidential election.
"They cannot claim competitive standing because they were no longer candidates when they filed their complaint," Pregerson wrote. "
22 December - And the people at the OC Weekly have fun.
"Barack Obama does not have to go to court to prove to Orange County's Orly Taitz and the Rev. Wiley Drake and seven other Southern Californians that he was natural born and eligible to be president of the United States, a federal appeals court ruled today. One reason a three-judge panel of the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C., gave for dismissing the lawsuit filed on Inauguration Day 2009: the so-called birthers suffered no harm from the Obama presidency giving them the right to sue him."
22 December - And the Daily Beast
"None of the dozens so-called birthers can take President Obama to court to answer their claims that he wasn’t born in the U.S., a federal appeals court ruled Friday. The three-judge panel said the birthers didn’t have the right to sue President Obama because none of them have suffered an injury at his expense. Although 2008 Independent Party candidate Alan Keyes was among the plaintiffs, the court ruled that even former presidential candidates cannot force Obama to come to court. The judges also noted in their ruling that aside from the lack of standing by the plaintiffs, the political question of Obama’s legitimacy as president is beyond their control as a court."
22 December - And yes, Dr. Orly is a low life scumsucking bottom feeder. (Malware and redirect warning)
"Also, I got an e-mail from Dean Haskins, where he is not happy with the fact that I served 2 subpoenas: one for Obama’s BC, the other for the BC of Virginia Sunahara. Why I included this subpoena? Rule 338-18 has a provision, 338-18(9) whereby by court order a long form BC can be released. Virginia Sunahara is deceased, so there are no considerations of privacy. I wrote about her for over a year and submitted to several courts information, that Obama’s friend William Ayers admitted to going to cemeteries and getting names of deceased infants and getting social Security numbers based on their birth certificates. In my pleadings I argued, that we need to find a source of Obama’s forged BC. The source could be a bc of a baby born the same day and deceased the next day. In June of this year I submitted a request to see her long form BC. As long as I have a subpoena signed by a judge, I have an order from a court of competent jurisdiction and can get access to both birth certificates. As I have a case scheduled for trial for January 26, I have to use such a window of opportunity. We do not know, what will happen tomorrow. W e have to use all the tools we have in our arsenal, while we still have those tools. There are other reasons, I can’t go into all the reasons and all the details at the moment, but I hope I explained enough for people to understand, that I am using all the tools and doing everything humanly possible. Things are never what they seem. I can’t go into more details."
Wonder what had Dean Haskins panties in a knot? Is there a level even he won't desend to?? Or is he worried this may screw up his "big case" in Hawaii??
22 December - World Nut Daily tries to spin Dr. Orly and Gary Kreep's loss.
""We've sent our recommendation to the plaintiffs," said Kreep. "I was surprised [by the opinion] given the comments made by the justice Berzon about this was an important constitutional issue that needed to be resolved."
Taitz told WND that it is important to note that the court did not confirm that Obama is eligible; just that there were technical troubles with all of the current case claims.
"They were careful not to state that Barack Obama is eligible for the presidency," she said. "[The opinion] doesn't say he has a valid birth certificate, valid Social Security number."
"All is says is nobody has standing," she said.
Her plan is to submit motions for rehearing at the 9th Circuit and other courts, based on the newest ruling, which seems to contradict earlier rulings she said she obtained in related cases. Her cases that were dismissed because they were brought before the inauguration and therefore lacked the requisite "ripeness" demanded by courts.
"It seems we are residing within a dictatorship, a totalitarian regime where the courts and judges are simply used as puppets to come up with some excuse to deny the complaints," she told WND."
And in comments, look, it's the racist who claims to be a former member of the Foreign Legion!!
"Chris Farrell · Top Commenter · New Orleans, Louisiana
Do you really think that Obama / Soetoro is going to relinquish power in a fair and legal election? Do you put anything past the 'Manchurian' Muslim from Mombasa and his minions, the master manipulator of the media? 'King Hussein' Obama and his Muslim Brothers from the Hood will create the emergency he needs to set aside the Constitution. He has unlimited funds with which to proceed from the Islamic network of money transfer operations. There is no paper trail when a Muslim sends money to another Muslim through their traditional method. A Muslim can go into a location anywhere in the world, put down fifty G's and pay a small service fee and another Muslim in New Orleans, Los Angeles, Houston, Boston or Miami can walk in and pick up the fifty stacks with which to keep the criminal illegally occupying the Oval Office in the White House. The mass media and our judicial system, infiltrated and dominated by liberal scum, shall facilitate his abduction of the office of the president of the United States for four more years.

22 December - ConWebBlog notes Loren's reporting of Corsi's plagiarism.
"As of this writing, Corsi's article is still live at WND. We've made a PDF copy, though, and will post it if/when WND deletes its version without explanation.
So, will Joseph Farah fire Corsi over this blatant plagiarism? Well, he didn't fire Aaron Klein when he falsely accused an Islamic charity of funding terrorism and raising money for nonexistent orphans, so we doubt Farah has the integrity to do the right thing here."
They have noted, however, that once again World Nut Daily tries to backtrack when they're caught at something.
"UPDATE 2: WND has added an editor's note to Corsi's article:
Editor's note: The following article is based on a paid, 8,000-word report by Kenyan researchers commissioned by WND. Unknown to WND, the report included unattributed references to a July 25, 2008, story by the Evening Standard of London. WND included a link to the 2008 story to back up the claims of the report, which WND believed was original. WND regrets the error.
This doesn't address the main issue here: If this report from "Kenyan researchers" is so heavily plagiarized, why should anyone trust it?
And given Corsi's history of obtaining fraudulent documents from Kenya, why should anyone trust anything Corsi reports that involves Kenya?
The editor's note also fails to address the other issues Collins identified with Corsi's article -- the AFP article that was also apparently plagiarized and the copyrighted photo that was presented without attribution.
WND has much more it needs to express "regret" for.
22 December - David Weigel at Slate also notices Loren's work.
"The Barackryphal blog catches noted birther author engaging in plagiarism."
22 December - Turning the Scale takes note of Loren's work as well.
"Loren found that a Dec. 19 article published in WND, headlined, “Obama’s Legacy of Broken Promises – in Kenya” seems to have passages in it that were pulled partially or wholly from articles that appeared in the London Evening Standard – July 25, 2008 – and a May 2011 African news service story.
In his article, Corsi says all but two of the quotes in question came from his “inside sources” in Kenya.
But as Loren points out, most of Corsi’s “borrowed” material seems to have come from quite visible sources:"

22 December - Tribble mobility scooter Donald Trump is coyly hinting at running for President under the "Batguano nutcase birther" ticket.
"New York real estate mogul Donald Trump is still considering a third party candidacy for president in 2012, and he believes his “great relationship with African American voters” would help him if he does run as an independent candidate."
Does that "great relationship" include his basically telling the President of the United States "I want to see your papers, boy"??
"A recent Public Policy Polling poll of registered voters reveals that 19 percent of the participants would support Mr. Trump as a third party candidate, in a three way contest against President Barack Obama and Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
The president finished with 45 percent, while Mr. Romney pulled in 31 percent of the votes for a second place finish."
So the lunatics would vote for Trump, the few sane republicans left would vote for Rommey, and everyone else for Obama. Okay, I can see that.
22 December - The court transcript for Dr. Orly's 30 November 2011 appearance in the First Circuit Court, State of Hawaii, is posted.
(Scribd link here)
Dr. Orly gets told "no" more times than a dense puppy being paper-trained.
23 December - On 11 December 2011, Jim Campbell at the "Dancing Czars" birther blog reposted the Pest and eFaiil article where John Dummett claimed to have gotten super secret information from Joe Arpaio and bragged about serving the local democratic party (incorrectly as it turned out).
What makes this special is Jim Campbell's commentary. (Bold face mine)
"In another piece of extraordinary investigative reporting Sharon Rondeau drove to Arizona to meet with Shariff Arpaio and the group below."
Actually Rondeau never went there, but simply interviewed John Dummett,
Reading comprehension - FAIL
"What follows could bring the end of Obama’s reign of terror on America.
Forget about impeachment for Obama there is a new game in town set in motion to bring Obama down. Filing legal charges of treason if proved may well lead to Obama’s death. Papers have been filed.
And to underscore this birther wet dream, this charming graphic:
"It’s time We the People rid ourselves of this tyrant and his minions as none of elected officials seem inclined to do so.
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message."
Ah, the horrid smell of sedition and treason…..
Jim Campbell seems to have similar cases of letting his mouth run ahead of his brain. Like this 22 December comment about Sen. Harry Reid:
"Sadly the parallel universe in which he live is not congruent with reality nor has it been in any country his “reality system” has been tried. Harry Reid is long over due for a dirt nap."
And on the same day, a rather interesting comment about Attorney General Eric Holder:
"Eric Holder, AKA the Ace of Spades"
Wow. Racist much??
23 December - Lawrence Sellin continues his grumpy against the GOP and Obama.
"Our elected representatives, the courts and federal law enforcement agencies all know the truth.
Yet they have violated their oaths of office to support and defend the Constitution and renounced their responsibility to uphold the rule of law. Some have committed Misprision of Felony by actively engaging in a cover-up of Obama’s crimes.
Congress, the courts and federal law enforcement officials are intentionally preventing an investigation into Obama’s crimes because it would reveal that our government is complicit in this outrageous fraud against the American people, is riddled with corruption and operates solely for the benefit of a selfish and powerful few."
Translation: "Wahhh! They didn't get rid of the scary black guy!!!"
"If Obama is permitted to contest the 2012 election, it will be the most deceitful, hate-filled and violent in U.S. history."
Where are we seeing the deceit, hatred, and violence??
In the far right.
Projection much Mr. Sellin?
"It is part of his campaign strategy to mobilize illegal immigrant “voters” as one element of a racially- and ethnically-based coalition supplemented by foreign financing, racist flash mobs, union thugs and anti-American radicals."
There's enough racist dog whistles there to call an entire pack of Klan hounds.
23 December - John Dummett's attorney, Van Irion, wants a separate hearing in Georgia for his version of the birther ballot jihad. His plaintiff this time is one David Welden.
(Scribd link here)
"Plaintiff Welden respectfully submits this motion for a separate hearing. Grounds for this motion, as set forth more fully below, are that Plaintiff Welden asserts different facts and law than the other Plaintiffs in the consolidated cases, that Plaintiff Welden’s argument is much simpler than that of the Plaintiffs in the consolidated cases, and that Plaintiff Welden’s case will be prejudiced by the ordered consolidated hearing."
I get the feeling this is more wanting to keep Dr. Orly from screwing things up than anything else.
"Plaintiff Welden has already stipulated that the Defendant was born in Hawaii, that the Defendant is a U.S. Citizen, and that the Defendant was Constitutionally-qualified to serve as a U.S. Senator. See Welden Opp. Mtn. Dismiss at 8-9. The other Plaintiffs in the consolidated cases contest all these facts. See Farrar et al. 1st Amd. Compl.; Farrar et al. Prop. Pre-Trial Or. Plaintiff Welden makes no assertion regarding the Defendant’s passports, or social security number, or any other fact related to the Defendant, with the one exception of the fact that the Defendant’s father was not a U.S. citizen. The other Plaintiffs contest the authenticity of the Defendant’s social security number and intend to make arguments about the Defendant’s passports."
Yep, this is a "please ignore the crazy lady" attempt to not have Orly splash all over their claims. However, he does want to preserve some birther street cred.
"Plaintiff Welden does not disparage the arguments of the other Plaintiffs in any way. He simply points out that the facts and evidence asserted by the other Plaintiffs are completely irrelevant to Plaintiff Welden’s assertions and legal arguments."
In other words Welden is as much of a conspiracy nutter as Dr. Orly and the rest of the birthers, but wants to pretend to be unconcerned with most of their blather.
23 December - ConWebBlog does a follow up to Loren's catching Corsi stealing.
"As far as we can recall, Corsi has used no named sources in a reporting on claims that originate from Kenya -- and that includes the "a former Kenyan Parliament member with whom WND has worked confidentially since 2008" and the "trusted Kenyan professionals" who put out the plagiarized "research" Corsi used.
Perhaps Corsi could explain how he came to trust these "trusted Kenyan professionals"and how they became so trustworthy. Perhaps WND editor JOseph Farah should explain why Corsi should remain on his payroll after such an embarrassing incident that gave yet another body blow to what little credibility WND has.
After all, if Corsi and WND found these folks to be "trusted," they obviously have an extremely low bar for such things. Real news organizations have much higher standards.
Here's an idea: Why doesn't WND post this "paid, 8,000-word report by Kenyan researchers" on its website so the rest of us can check it out? After all, WND paid handsomely for this piece of crap, so it shouldn't feel that bad about throwing these "trusted Kenyan professionals" under the bus, right?
Or is WND going to continue to protect their identities in the hope of getting more "research" from them?"
23 December - Sharon Rondeau shows an impressive degree of hypocrisy in a holiday wish that should have her on the watch for lighting bolts.
"Even for those who do not believe that Jesus was sent by God to save the world from sin, many believe he was a great teacher. Jesus taught that we should love our enemies, and do good to those who persecute us, and to store up “treasures in heaven.” He also commanded men not to “swear falsely” and stressed the importance of telling the truth."
Swearing falsely and telling the truth are things that all birthers have problems with.
"We pray for all those who have practiced deception and dishonesty to leave the darkness behind and embrace the light of truth."
Yes, I would like all the birthers to reject their lies and hatred and walk towards the light of truth and honesty.
"We pray for Barack Obama, that he will come to know God’s love and reveal his records and true identity. We pray for our unresponsive and morally bankrupt Congress, that they may step forward, admit their mistakes, or resign to allow a more worthy person the job. "
"For the vile person will speak villany, and his heart will work iniquity, to practise hypocrisy, and to utter error against the LORD, to make empty the soul of the hungry, and he will cause the drink of the thirsty to fail." - Isaiah 32:6
"Which say, Stand by thyself, come not near to me; for I am holier than thou. These are a smoke in my nose, a fire that burneth all the day." - Isaiah 65:5
"And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye." - Matthew 7:3-5
"And they come unto thee as the people cometh, and they sit before thee as my people, and they hear thy words, but they will not do them: for with their mouth they shew much love, but their heart goeth after their covetousness. And, lo, thou art unto them as a very lovely song of one that hath a pleasant voice, and can play well on an instrument: for they hear thy words, but they do them not." - Ezekiel 33:31-32
"An hypocrite with his mouth destroyeth his neighbour: but through knowledge shall the just be delivered." - Proverbs 11:9
And more importantly:
"This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me." - Matthew 15:8
Your lips profess a claim to faith Ms. Rondeau, but your actions speak of a darkness and hatred that eats at your soul and keeps you from the light of divinity.
Unlike the birthers, I'm taking time for the holidays with my family and friends. Expect sporadic updates between now and the New Year. And bear in mind this.
Right now the "great white hopes" for the birtherstani are the various ballot challenges and whatever Joe Arpaio manages to foist off on the gullible. Past history has shown the failure rate of the birthers is pretty much a constant. So what happens when the primary ballot challenges fail to work?
Expect the same challenges to the general election ballots. And should Obama win a second term, expect challenges to the various Secretary of States, rehashes of unfaithful elector attempts, and demands that the House and Senate not confirm the electoral college results. Expect more lawsuits, most of which a rehash of all the other failed lawsuits.
And also expect over the next year to hear even more reports of violence, death threats, and calls for armed coups and overthrow. Expect the rhetoric to ratchet up over the next year.
Happy holidays everyone.
