In today's dispatches, Right Wing Watch notices that Farah seems to be milking the birtherstani faithful. Gary Kreep tries for an en banc appeal, and Dr. Orly goes "ME TOO!!!". Cody Robert Judy is having imaginary conversations.
We have some commentary about the upcoming Georgia Birther Ballot Jihad, while Dr. Orly further abuses those pre-signed forms. Larry Sinclair's kilt-clad disbarred attorney makes a reappearance in Birtherstan. The Kansas Speaker of the House puts the "KKK" in "Klassy". Dr. Kate continues her journey into the sewer, showing more open racism in the process.
Van Irion shows the common birther ignorance of the Constitution. Dr. Orly whines about people calling her racist by making racist comments. Salon writes about the "Anti-Obama Cult". Al Hendershot has his day in court - and promptly acts the sore loser about it. And old-time birther Harold Sorensen fires the next round in the Alabama Birther Ballot Jihad.
6 January - And Right Wing Watch notices how Joseph Farah is using Arpaio to milk the birthers and make World Nut Daily's budget run more in the black.
"A few months back the birther website WorldNetDaily teamed-up with Arizona’s Sheriff Joe Arpaio to launch an investigation into President Obama’s birth certificate, with stands to financially benefit both parties involved. WND editor Joseph Farah today sent out a fundraising note telling members that “Obama is not eligible to be president” and urging them to donate to Arpaio’s “Cold Case Posse.” Since Farah claims that “there is nearly 100 percent agreement among qualified forensics investigators and document experts” that President Obama’s birth certificate is a forgery, one wonders why Farah wants to go through with an “investigation” by Arpaio’s scandal-ridden office if he already believes that the birth certificate is indisputably a fake document.
Contributions to the “Cold Case Posse” doesn’t only go to support Arpaio, but also bolster the coffers of WND: “A portion of all contributions will go to support WND’s efforts, with another portion going to Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse, set to issue its report in February 2012.” Contributors are also able to receive Jerome Corsi’s “Where’s the Birth Certificate?,” which is published by none other than WND Books:"
6 January - World Nut Daily reports (and Birther Reports steals) that the aptly-named Gary Kreep files an en banc request to have the entire 9th circuit court of appeals judges reconsider the decision in Keyes/Barnett v Obama.
"The petition for a rehearing of the full bench was filed today by Kreep on behalf of his clients. Taitz earlier told WND her plaintiffs will pursue further action but which step would be taken was as yet unclear."
She has to wait for the rats infesting her nitrous-addled brainpan to figure it out
"Kreep’s clients are Wiley S. Drake, a candidate for the White House on the American Independent Party ticket in California; and Markham Robinson, a certified California elector for the American Independent Party.
The judges had observed: “These plaintiffs argue that they have standing because, as candidates running against Obama in the 2008 election, they had an interest in having a fair competition. … If Obama entered the presidential race without meeting the requirements for the office, they contend, the candidates did not have a fair opportunity to obtain votes in their favor.”
The opinion from the panel of judges Harry Pregerson, Ray Fisher and Marsha Berzon explained the concept is called “competitive standing,” and they affirmed it as legitimate grounds for concern.
“This notion of ‘competitive standing’ has been recognized by several circuits,” the opinion said. “We, too, have upheld the notion of ‘competitive standing.’ In Owen v. Mulligan, we held that the ‘potential loss of an election’ was an injury-in-fact sufficient to give a local candidate and Republican party officials standing. In that case, the candidate for local office sued the Postal Service for giving his rival a preferential mailing rate, in violation of its own regulations.”
The opinion said the case had the candidate and party officials seeking “to prevent their opponent from gaining an unfair advantage.” However, in Obama’s case, the court panel simply said that once the inauguration was held, the claims evaporated, because the plaintiffs no longer were “candidates.”"
7 January - Cody Robert Judy posts a fantasy debate between himself and Obama.
Cody Judy is off his meds. Badly. And his "debate style" sounds a LOT like "why aren't you answering my questions, BOY??"
7 January - At the "Atlanta 11th Circuit Court Examiner" version of the Fake Examiner….
"Taitz’s (and the birther’s) attempt at using a challenge and opinion of the Missouri Supreme Court based on an 1800s lawsuit involving women’s suffrage, is, at best, extremely weak. The challenge appears, on the surface, not be on the question of President Obama’s true citizenship, but directly aimed at making certain that another citizen who is not a “free white person” can ever be elected President again. Their premise, by their own words in this document, is not based on President Obama’s white American mother, Ann Dunham, whose name is never once mentioned in this document, but on his Kenyan father, Barack Obama Sr., and now comes the highly racist and antagonistic viewpoint from which Taitz and her conspiracy theorists truly rest their case.
Simply put, the birthers will neither rest nor be satisfied until President Obama stops being at least partially black. And the more unfortunate part of this theory is that the initial challenge itself came from a black American Republican by the name of Alan Keyes back in Chicago when President Obama was running for the Illinois U.S. Senate.
The best thing Judge Malihi can do, under the circumstances, is make an example out of Taitz and Farrar and close the books on this one for good. And even that is not likely to make them go away."
7 January - Remember Montgomery Blair Sibley?? He was the kilt-clad (now disbarred) attorney who showed up with Larry Sinclair, when Sinclair went to speak at the PUMAs at the National Press Club in 2008?
Well, he's running a vanity campaign for President. And suing Obama.
"On Tuesday, Sibley filed suit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia against President "Barrack" Obama. The misspelling is ironic given the nature of the suit.
The suit seeks a judgment "ousting Obama as President of the United States and/or preventing him from holding the franchise of being on the ballot for that office in 2012 insomuch as he is not a 'natural born Citizen' of the United States as required by Article II, sec. 1, of the U.S. Constitution." In the suit, Sibley presents the evidence that he is a natural-born citizen, and is eligible to be president. He is asking for a jury trial.
Other "birther" suits have been denied on standing grounds, meaning that the courts have found the parties bringing the suits haven't shown they'll be personally affected by the outcome of the case. In his complaint, Sibley argues that because of his own run for the presidency, he does have the requisite personal connection to the suit's outcome."
Said blog post is here. And guess what? He's a de Vattelist.
A PDF of his lawsuit is here.
"Expert document examiners have examined each of the COLBs and found significant indications of fraud raising the very real specter that Obama was not even born in the United States."
And who are these "experts"??
Ron Polland/Polarik, Douglas Vogt, and Paul Irey, None of which is a forensic document specialist, all of of which have shown substantial bias long before they performed an "analysis."
7 January - Keep it classy Kansas.
"The Republican speaker of the Kansas statehouse issued an apology this week after sending emails from his personal account referring to First Lady Michelle Obama as “Mrs. YoMama” and quoting a Bible verse cited by some as a reference to presidential assassination.
Kansas House Speaker Mike O’Neal [above], from the city of Hutchison, sent an email before Christmas that compared the president’s wife to the Dr. Seuss character The Grinch, with a tagline asking: “Twins separated at birth?”
“I’m sure you’ll join me in wishing Mrs. YoMama a wonderful, long Hawaii Christmas vacation — at our expense, of course,” the forward read.
In another of O’Neal’s emails, he referenced Psalm 109 from the Old Testament, which reads in part:
May his children be fatherless and his wife a widow.
May his children be wandering beggars; may they be driven from their ruined homes.
May a creditor seize all he has; may strangers plunder the fruits of his labor.
May no one extend kindness to him or take pity on his fatherless children.
O’Neal wrote: “At last — I can honestly voice a Biblical prayer for our president! Look it up — it is word for word! Let us all bow our heads and pray. Brothers and Sisters, can I get an AMEN? AMEN!!!!!!”
7 January - One gets the feeling Dr. Kate is upset at the fact that there's not been a military coup against Obama yet.
"I would add that this administration is loaded with Muslims who intend on destroying America–the U.S. Military, the Department of Homeland Security, the White House, the Justice Department, and the Energy Department."
"We have a spineless military command that wrings its hands instead of taking action as Obama shares our most precious military hardware with our enemies, conducts unlawful activities every single day, and destroys our economy."
"Wahhh!! Where's my military coup!!!!!"
"We are at the point where the only ‘candidates’ that Americans can trust are the write-ins, or soon to be write-ins, like Ron Paul, Montgomery Blair Sibley, John Dummet, Sarah Palin, and others. "
"Blessed St. Sarah Moosekiller, warrior huntress of the north, protect us from the Scary Black Man!!"
And in response to a picture of Michelle Obama:
January 7, 2012 at 9:18 pm
who’s the muzzie in the background in full burka gear?"
Wow, she's not even hiding the racism anymore. Though she's not the only one:
January 7, 2012 at 9:31 pm
You have good eyes, Kate. I didn’t even see that person. A sister muzzie, maybe?"
Such charming people
7 January - Van Irion discusses his portion of the Georgia Birther Ballot Jihad with the Pest and eFail.
"The reason we are going first and being heard separately is that I plan on calling one witness — my client, David Welden. I plan on asking him three questions; that’s it, we’re done, and making one argument. The presentation of evidence and testimony will take 15 minutes or less. We’ll probably argue the law for quite some time after that, but that’s the whole point. "
The argument being:
"Here it is: Barack Obama’s father was never a U.S. citizen. The Supreme Court, in Minor v. Happersett, defined “natural born Citizen” under the Constitution as “being born in this country with both parents being U.S. citizens at the time the candidate was born.” That’s “natural born Citizen;” that’s the Supreme Court’s definition; it’s never been overturned or challenged or questioned; therefore, Barack Obama is not qualified to be president by his own admission."
That's going to take less than 15 minutes to rebut
"The good news is that Judge Michael Malihi was the first judge anywhere to actually issue a subpoena to the Hawaii Department of Health to a) show up and be questioned, and b) have the original written birth certificate with you or a darn good explanation why you don’t, and the microfilm. "
Actually that was Dr. Orly using a pre-signed form, not the judge himself.
"I was told that the Deputy Attorney General, Jill Nagamine, has said that Hawaii doesn’t have to answer a subpoena from another state.
Oh, that’s hilarious. That violates the Constitution of the United States and is akin to seceding from the nation. If the state of Hawaii does that, the judge has the right to jail them. "
"The way that works is that he writes a contempt order and sends it to the law enforcement of the state of Hawaii, and if they fail, then they’re violating the Constitution and we need to get the federal court in Hawaii involved. The Full Faith and Credit Clause of the Constitution states “must honor the judgments from courts duly constituted in other states.” "
Funny how they don't think the Full Faith and Credit Clause doesn't cover birth certificates, but covers subpoenas out of a court's jurisdiction.
7 January - Over at Dr. Orly's House o' Malware (malware and redirect warning)
"YOU CAN SEE HOW OBAMA SUPPORTERS IN THE MEDIA ARE COMPLETELY MISREPRESENTING THE CASE AND THE ISSUES AND CALLING ME AND MY CLIENT RACISTS. PLEASE, RESPOND TO THEM, I SIMPLY DON’T HAVE TIME TO RESPOND TO THEM
Posted on | January 7, 2012"
The irony being in comments: (bold face mine)
"orly taitz January 8th, 2012 @ 5:23 am I can’t represent them yet. I forwarded a petition for pro had vice to the judge, but did not hear from her yet. It takes time for the petition to be processed with all the suppoting docs and to be granted. Al contacted me the last moment, so I am not representing him yet. Also, somebody in Alabama needs to file a new case with another judge. Judge Lee refused to gave any continuance, which is typically granted. She might be biased in favor of a fellow African-American lawyer and politician. They might need a different judge and a different court"
So you're already claiming that Hendershot is going to lose monday because the judge is, you know, one of "them darkies…."
Gee, I can't imagine WHY someone might think you're a racist pile o' poo……
8 January - Once again, Dr. Orly plays "me too!" to Gary Kreep. (malware and redirect warning)

8 January - Looks like Dr. Orly was careless. (malware and redirect warning)
"When I landed in HI, I got a call from an NBC reporter from Atlanta, who wanted to interview me on SKYPE. When I opened my briefcase, my laptop was not there. I thought, that I might have forgotten it during TSA check, I called TSA lost and found, they never responded. When I arrived in LAX and went to TSA, they said, that it wasn’t found.
It never happened to me before. When I arrived in HI, I went to FEDEX-Kinkos, I needed to notarize my Pro Hac Vice papers for AL. They did not have a notary, so I walked to a bank, came back, wanted to scan and e-mail the docs, was told that the Internet is down at FEDEX and will be down till the next day. Luckily the Internet was working at another FEDEX. Even my glasses were gone, luckily I had another pair of glasses. I thought that the glasses could’ve fallen out of my purse, but the laptop could not fall out. It is a set back, but I will manage."
This is why it's a good idea to have LoJack for Laptops and/or GadgetTrac on one's laptops, to find them when they grow legs and go walkabout. I suspect she was careless where she placed it and someone picked it up and walked away with it. Not surprising. considering how addled she normally acts.
"judge Nishimura just threw it in, stating that she will not talk about the subpoena, she will talk about it on January 26, which of course is the date for the hearing in GA."
Of course she would't talk about it, IT WASN'T PART OF THE APPEAL FOR THE CASE IN QUESTION!!!!
"For her to refuse to enforce it during the hearing and schedule it for January 26, the day of the hearing in GA, is indescribable."
No, it's called "procedure". Something you seem to have problems with.
8 January - Salon writes about the "Anti-Obama Cult".
"The implosion of right-wing ideology and the persistence of the culture war toxin might have been enough by itself to create the anti-Obama cult, but two other factors also played a role. The first was his race. For many right-wingers, Obama was a foreign object, whose unexpected entrance into the body politic activated their immune systems – hence the “birther” movement and other bizarre right-wing obsessions. Whether the right’s aversion to Obama constitutes classic racism is a Talmudic question; what is undeniable is that his race activated a horde of (literally) white cells, rushing to expel the invader. Like organisms, cults always delineate themselves by drawing sharp lines between Us and Them."
8 January - The AP writes about Al Hendershot and the Alabama Birther Ballot Jihad.
"Birmingham businessman Albert Hendershot Jr. contends Obama is not a natural-born citizen, his Social Security number is fake and his birth certificate is too.
"Any idiot with a computer in the basement can make one," Hendershot said."
You mean like Ron Polland/Polarik??
"The Alabama Democratic Party calls Hendershot's argument political fantasy and says he's part of a loosely knit group of Internet buddies trying to undermine the president's candidacy."
I'd say the Alabama Democratic Party did their homework.
"Hendershot argues that he has standing because he will be disenfranchised as a voter if an improper candidate appears on Alabama's ballot. He wants the judge to require the president to produce his original birth certificate and Social Security application to prove he meets the constitutional qualifications for president."
Somehow I suspect the "You better show us your papers, boy" argument won't work.
"The results, he said, could have far-reaching consequences. "If he's not qualified to be president, then everything he's done as president has to be reversed," Hendershot said."
Ah yes, the magic reset button, so beloved of birtherstani.
"Hendershot, a former stockbroker who founded a debt collection firm, said he voted for Obama in 2008, but then became concerned about whether the president's birth certificate and some other documents were legitimate."
Why do I suspect he's lying about this??
"If Hendershot loses before the Democratic circuit judge, he said he will appeal to the Alabama Supreme Court, where all the justices are Republicans.
"That's a conservative court here in Alabama," he said."
Good luck with that. Conservative judges have also told the birthers "no" before.
8 January - Sharon Rondeau gives an update on Walter Fitzpatrick.
"Visitors to see Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III at the Monroe County jail over the last two weeks have reported that Fitzpatrick has a diabetic ulcer on his heel and rarely gets to shower. The risk of skin infection for diabetics necessitates scrupulous hygiene and can lead to amputation if the wound does not heal properly. Elevated blood sugar levels present in diabetes cause skin wounds to heal much more slowly than in patients without the disease.
The NYU Langone Medical Center reports that “Diabetic foot ulcers (DFU’s) are highly prevalent and the primary source of hospitalizations and amputations in persons with diabetes.” Ulcers are a result of decreased blood flow to the area and loss of sensation. The medical team at the center recommends that diabetics “wash…feet daily” and “The moment a person with diabetes suffers a break in the skin of the foot, they are at serious risk of amputation due to their bodies [sic] weakened ability to fight infection. Of the more than 20 million people in the US with diabetes, as many as 25% will develop a foot ulcer in their lifetime. Of these, 14-24% will end in amputation.”
Complications of diabetes can lead to sepsis, a severe bacterial infection of the blood.
When we asked one visitor if he believed the ulcer was improving over time, he responded, “I have to trust the nurses. They inspect the ulcer and change the bandage daily. "
You know, if Fitzpatrick wasn't handling his diabetes properly in the past, then that might explain some of his bouts of irrationality.
9 January - The judge in the Alabama Birther Ballot Jihad tells Hendershot "How about No??"
"A Jefferson County judge this morning dismissed a Birmingham man's lawsuit seeking to keep President Barack Obama off primary ballots March 13 in Alabama.
After a hearing in her Birmingham courtroom, Circuit Judge Helen Shores Lee ruled that the courts have no authority to tell the state political parties who they can include on their primary ballots.
Albert E. Hendershot filed the suit Dec. 13 against Mark Kennedy, chairman of the Alabama Democratic Party. He contends he has "staggering" evidence that Obama is using a forged birth certificate and fake Social Security card, and that he is ineligible to serve as president because he is not a natural-born citizen."
9 January - The Associated Press reports on Hendershot's denial.
"Hendershot asked the judge to hold a full-blown hearing on the evidence so he could prove Obama isn’t eligible to serve as president.
“We have people who are just waiting to come to Alabama and testify,” he told the judge.
“Is that it?” she asked.
“That’s all I have,” said Hendershot.
Lee then dismissed the case and said she would issue a written order later. Ragsdale said Obama opponents could still file similar challenges elsewhere in the state in a bid to keep the president of the Alabama ballot.
“One thing I’ve learned about birthers is you can never say die,” Ragsdale said outside court."
Yeah, no kidding.
9 January - And video of Ragsdale.
He's right. The facts or the law don't matter to birthers.
9 January - "Second Front" has the Hendershot dismissal And no, it's not over…
"According to a post on Judge Mark Kennedy’s Facebook profile, the dismissal was appealed in St. Clair county just hours after the hearing. Judge Kennedy was also made aware of another similar filing in Jefferson County today.
“Within less than two hours AFTER the Jefferson County Circuit Court dismissed the ‘birther’ lawsuit filed against me, I have been sued AGAIN by another person in Jefferson County claiming the same thing,” Kennedy wrote. “Talk about clogging up the court system….”
Kennedy wrote that he would ask for legal fees when he opposes the next round of birther suits, and in a later post called on Republicans “to put a stop to this since they are all over Democrats about filing frivolous lawsuits!”"
9 January - Dr. Orly is getting a lot of use out of that pre-signed subpoena form.
Let's hope the judge has a low tolerance for "abuse of process".
9 January - The Supreme Court makes a decision on the Tea Party / Birther case Purpura v Sebelius.
"Jan 9 2012 Petition DENIED."
9 January - At the Pest and eFail, a whiney letter from Robert Laity that his New York Birther Ballot Jihad seems to have been ignored.
"There are Ballot challenges being lodged against Obama in all 50 States. He skated by the first time. I urge your committee to not allow him to usurp the Presidency and to defraud the voters of New York a second time. There is NO “President” obama"
9 January - Al Hendershot spins his denial at Birther Report.
"The opposing attorney told the Judge that she did not have jurisdiction to hear the case. Judge Lee stated in a meeting in her chambers that the Motion for Recusal was denied. Judge Lee's comment regarding my reasoning of judicial bias stated: "Is the bias due to me (Judge Lee) and our President Obama are both black?"
Gee, I can't imagine why she might think that.
"The Judge denied my constitutional right to legal council"
Translation - "Wahh, she didn't give me enough time to bring Dr. Orly in after all.!!"
"This Morning unbenounced to the court, there were two other cases filed at exactly 8:30AM (before my case was even heard at 9:15AM) in two other separate cases asking for the same temporary injunction. So technically these two other cases will have to be heard on their merits."
And dismissed accordingly.
"So we snow have two more temporary injunctions which will still prevent the anointed one from being added to the 2012 Primary Ballot in Alabama by 01/19/2012. They will be served again…"
And the cases will be dismissed. Again.
You know, for someone who claims not to be a birther, Hendershot is awfully familiar with the birther talking points and sneering commentary….
9 January - The primates at Birther Report are busy flinging poo about the Hendershot dismissal.
"bobs box said…[Reply] Since she is black, the welfare state elected her! January 6, 2012 2:55 PM"
"But we're not racist, honest!!"
"Anonymous said…[Reply] Shut it you Obot asshats. I know this woman and YES she IS the most liberal judge in the state, probably the country (not to mention dumb as a box of rocks). NO WAY Hendershot could get a fair hearing from that bitch. The freaking race card is all you idiots have left and trust me, we're not buying it. Obozo is half white in case you couldn't figure that part out. There's nothing racist about calling somebody out for being liberal and stupid. Stick the race card up your ignorant asses. I'm sick of seeing you pull it out. January 7, 2012 8:05 PM"
"How DARE you claim we're racist just because we say racist things!!!"
And Al Hendershot shows his true colors.
We will be filing a Formal Complaint to the Adminstrative Judge and the Head Judicial Disciplinary Board against Judge Lee for being Racially Biased as she admitted to being so. She did not allow me a Court Reporter or Legal Counsel. She did not hear the case based on its merit.
January 9, 2012 3:01 PM"
9 January - And sure enough yet another lawsuit shows up to continue the Alabama Birther Ballot Jihad, this one by Harold Sorensen.
Harold Sorensen is somewhat familiar to me. Last week he was the one who wrote the letter that the Pest and eFail published warning the Alabama Republican Party that they better not nominate Bobby Jindal or Mario Rubio, lest they incur de Vattel's jealous wrath. And last month he had a rally the troops birther blather there as well.
He also shows up in Tesibria's Birther Scorecard(PDF), having filed a complaint (PDF) on 4 Dec. 2008, (Case CV-08-1906-2008), "Sorensen v Riley", against Alabama Governor Bob Riley, the DNC, the RNC, Barack Obama, and John McCain. The complaint was based around the idea that Obama and McCain, then being US Senators, were somehow ineligible to be President. and that neither were "Natural Born" citizens.
"The new suit, filed today in Jefferson County Circuit Court by Harold Sorensen of Luverne, also contends Obama is ineligible to serve as president and should be barred from Alabama ballots.
"In 2008, the (Democratic National Committee) certified an ineligible candidate, Barack Obama, and thus defrauded the American people," Sorenson wrote in his lawsuit. "This was a violation of the basic voter's rights and Obama's subsequent usurpation constitutes the greatest crime ever perpetrated against the American people."
Civil cases are randomly assigned, and Sorenson's suit wound up with the same judge who this morning dismissed a suit by Albert E. Hendershot."
Oh dear. *chuckle*
And a warning:
"Another similar suit also was filed today in St. Clair County.
"This is nothing short of judge shopping," Ragsdale said in response to the new suits. "Sometimes you have to teach people that 'no' means 'no.' We will definitely be seeking sanctions and attorney's fees from these other plaintiffs if they refuse to dismiss their frivolous lawsuits." "
BTW, there's a funny part of Sorensen's 2008 case.
"11. To be "natural born" under Article II, Section 1, Clause 5, the person seeking such recognition must have exited his mother's womb, or otherwise been removed there from, within the judicial or territorial power of anyone of the 50 States of the United States of America and there will be no exceptions regarding this Complaint."
Wow. I thought it was a matter of known fact among the birthers that EVERYONE was taught in school de Vattel's sacred definition of "Natural Born Citizen".
However, in his brand new case (PDF), we have:
"6. It is undisputed that Mr. Obama's father was not a U.S. citizen. To Plaintiffs' knowledge Candidate Obama has never denied the fact that his father was not a U.S. Citizen, nor has he ever made any statements contrary to this filet. The U.S. Supreme Court has defined "natural born citizens" as "all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens." See minor v. Happersett, 88 U.S. 162, 167 (1875). The Court in Happersetl did go on to state that other subcategories of people mayor may not be within the broader term "citizen." However, it did so only after specifically identifying the narrower category "natural-born citizens." ld The Happtersett Court clearly understood and established that "citizen" is a much broader term than "natural-born citizens." Its discussion of "citizen" does not negate or alter its earlier definition of the term "natural-born citizens." See ld At 167-168. This precedent has never been questioned by any subsequent Supreme Court. This precedent is binding. Because it is undisputed that Candidate Obama can never be a natural-bom citizen, as that term was defined by the U.S. Supreme Court. Therefore, Candidate Obama cannot meet the Constitutional requirements to hold the office of President. See U.S. Constitution, Article II, Section 1."
I think this is one of the better examples of birthers "moving the goalposts" In December of 2008, it was claimed that "Natural Born" meant "born on US soil". By January of 2012, the SAME PERSON is claiming that no, it's two US citizen parents, obviously.
The entire document is 41 pages. Most of which is Linda Jordan's admission she broke the law, Douglas Vogt's pile o' poo, Susan Daniels "research", and the proof Greg Hollister broke the law. Wonder if anyone should mention to Mr. Ragsdale that some of the information Sorensen is providing was obtained illegally.....
