In today's dispatches, the "patriotic" birthers do love them some Pravda. Riding hard on Berg's reappearance, Chief Editor Korir makes a reappearance. Arizona, once again, guts a completely unrelated bill and sews a birther bill into the skin.
Dr. Orly's former clients are told by the Superior Court of Georgia "No". Van Irion is told by the Superior Court of Georgia "No" and throws a hissy fit. Philip Berg is told by the Pennsylvania courts "No."
Some of the people Joe Arpaio considers good enough for a posse seem to be better suited for the other side of the law. And open racist Hugh McInnish files a birther ballot jihad challenge citing that famous legal journal "World Nut Daily".
9 March - The Floyd Brown / Joseph Farah ran "Western Center for 'Journalism'" is pimping Diane Cotter's article in Pravda-OnLine.
"The English language version of the Russian publication “Pravda” (a word which ironically means either truth or justice) is revealing what perhaps is the most mind boggling piece of the puzzle of Barack Obama’s nativity story heretofore hidden from public knowledge.
“Arizona + Minor v. Happersett + Hawaii State/U.S. Citizenship issues = justia and the scrubbing of Minor off the internet=a puzzle coming together, showing what Obama really is” summarizes one columnist, commenting on Pravda’s scoop.
One free legal search site allegedly scrubbed the penultimate Supreme Court decision regarding definition of NATURAL BORN CITIZEN before the 2008 election; Minor v. Happersett either was just dropped or somehow (minimized) by “Justia.com (which) is owned by an Obama supporter.”
Pravda goes on to assert that the “systematic scrubbing of Minor v. Happersett in the summer of 2008 (involved) erasing the name and specific text quoted from the case, along with specific citations to it out of dozens of Supreme Court cases” citing Minor in “over 138 years of American Supreme Court History!” .
So it's "international attention" when a Free Republic writer who lives in Oregon gets something published in an on-line newspaper with an anti-american slant and low journalistic standards??
Okay, good to know.
And under his "PRevere" sock puppet, Carl Swensson continues his cranky pants bitching and sedition.

Talk talk talk talk talk, what do you expect? Your pen (keyboard) is mightier than their sword? Get real folks. Action speaks louder than words. Always has, always will. American males are a worldwide joke. Nuetered, metro males with no ability to do anything other than whine. How depressing, how un-patriotic, how un-American.
Do something, anything, but quit whining for God’s sake!
What do you plan on doing when the SHTF as it most definitely will? Hunker down? Blog some more?
For the love of God, GET REAL!!! Focus on action.., any action, otherwise, go back to watching your telly and B_tch to someone who’ll listen. Oh, I’m sorry, I guess that’s what you’re doing here. This is a classic example of insanity.
See ya, wouldn’t want to be ya.:"
Carl shows a maturity level that would be considered immature for a 2nd grader.

And now his appointee (illegally appointed I might add) (Leon Panetta) just told the Senate (Jeff Sessions) that he needn’t consult with or get the approval of Congress to wage war. His authority comes from the UN. Tried to tell all, many times, he has and will continue to institute a foreign and alien form of government as long as we sit around, talk and do nothing about it. We are long past due to fertilize the tree of Liberty."

Start telling your friends to stop all but necessary purchases. We can starve the beast if enough put their mind to it. Silver is an excellent choice. Lead is required."
Funny thing, but the last time Carl talked tough he ended up ratting out Huff and Fitzpatrick to the FBI.
Not by Carl but in the same thread.

…This oft repeated reference to “The First Black President” when referring to Obama is in reality nonsense. He’s at best the first Mulatto or Black/White mixed president, assuming his account of his parentage is to be believed. "
Does anyone outside of white nationalists still use the phrase "mulatto"???
March 9, 2012 at 2:10 pm
The rest of the world is wondering how Americans could have screwed up so badly and allowed the kenyan baboon occupy the WH."
9 March - From out of the mists of birther history rides Chief Editor Korir of African Press International!!
"Now it is here and places the president in the African continent. The debate surrounding it will now end after the revelation, and those who have not been telling the truth will have to be made answerable one way or another.
The revelation, however, coming during this election year 2012 is doing no good to the democratic party.
API on Tuesday the 6th March evening received President Obama’s genuine birth certificate. API decided not to hurry in publishing it immediately because we wanted to be sure of the content value.
Now that the scrutiny has been done, the publishing of the Birth certificate that will clear the air once and for all is being done without prejudice. This may force the US president to apologize to the American people for having been kept in the dark on the issue for a long time now on demanding the publishing of the birth certificate by President Obama.
More to follow……….. The genuine birth certificate will be scanned and made available here for all to see."
I'm sure Chief Editor Korir has the genuine birth certificate stored right next to the 2008 tape of Michelle Obama......
12 March - Do you remember how last year, Arizona state lawmakers took a bill that had made it out of committee, gutted every single word out of it, and then stapled in the text of the birther bills that had failed to make it out of said committee, even though the original bill had absolutely nothing to do with birtherism??
Well, meet this year's shambling zombie of a birther bill, HB 2480, Originally introduced by birther state Rep. Carl Seel, the original bill dealt with auditing the state's health care plan and those on it.
"D. All persons desiring to become a candidate shall file with the nomination paper provided for in subsection A an affidavit UNDER PENALTY OF PERJURY, which shall be printed in a form prescribed by the secretary of state. The affidavit shall include facts sufficient to show that, other than the residency requirement provided in subsection A, the candidate will be qualified at the time of election to hold the office the person seeks AND THAT FOR THE RESIDENCY REQUIREMENT PROVIDED IN SUBSECTION A, THE CANDIDATE IS A QUALIFIED RESIDENT OF THE APPROPRIATE COUNTY, CITY, TOWN, DISTRICT, WARD OR PRECINCT AT THE TIME OF FILING. FOR CANDIDATES FOR PRESIDENT AND VICE‑PRESIDENT FROM A POLITICAL PARTY THAT IS ENTITLED TO CONTINUED REPRESENTATION ON THE BALLOT, THE NATIONAL POLITICAL PARTY COMMITTEE FOR EACH OF THOSE CANDIDATES SHALL SUBMIT TO THE SECRETARY OF STATE THE AFFIDAVIT SIGNED UNDER PENALTY OF PERJURY BY THE PRESIDENTIAL AND VICE-PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES."
"I. ANY QUALIFIED ELECTOR MAY CHALLENGE THE NOMINATION PAPER AND AFFIDAVIT OF A CANDIDATE, INCLUDING THE FACTS OR LEGAL CONCLUSIONS CONTAINED IN THE NOMINATION PAPER AND AFFIDAVIT. THE CHALLENGE SHALL BE MADE AS PRESCRIBED IN AND PURSUANT TO SECTION 16-351.
I. J. For the purposes of this title:
1. "Election district" means the state, any county, city, town, precinct or other political subdivision or a special district which THAT is not a political subdivision, which THAT is authorized by statute to conduct an election and which THAT is authorized or required to conduct its election in accordance with this title."
To make it even better:
"Sec. 2. Emergency
This act is an emergency measure that is necessary to preserve the public peace, health or safety and is operative immediately as provided by law.”
Words come to mind. Unethical and downright sleazy and dishonest for example.
14 March - The Arizona Republic reports on that state's frankenstein birther bill.
"The state lawmaker who last year met with Donald Trump to discuss his "birther bill," and who greeted Sheriff Joe Arpaio's investigation into President Barack Obama's birth certificate with a cheer, has managed to revive the birther legislation.
On Wednesday, the Senate Government Reform Committee approved House Bill 2480 on a party line vote, with Republicans in favor and Democrats opposed.
Seel replaced the language in one of his AHCCCS fraud and waste bills with verbiage that would require any candidate for president and vice president of the United States to have their national party submit an affidavit to Arizona's Secretary of State attesting, under penalty of perjury, they are qualified to hold those offices."
Birther lawmaker state Sen. Judy Burges has her own problems with Seel's undead bill. Namely that it doesn't go far enough.
"Sen. Judy Burges, R-Sun City West and the original birther backer in the Legislature, said the bill is a shadow of its earlier self because it no longer requires the Secretary of State to certify natural birth and citizenship.
She was among the four Republicans voting "yes" on the bill, along with senators Lori Klein of Anthem, Rick Murphy of Peoria and Steve Smith of Maricopa."
14 March - David Farrar, Leah Lax, Cody Judy, and Laurie Roth hear back from the Superior Court of Georgia about their emergency injunction for reconsideration.
(Scribd link here)
"IT IS HEREBY ORDERED AND ADJUDGED that the Emergency Ex Parte Motion for Reconsideration of Plantiffs Cody Robert Judy and David Farrar is DENIED
SO ORDERED this 14 day of March, 2012
CYNTHIA D. WRIGHT, Chief Judge
Fulton County Superior Court
Atlanta Judicial Circuit"
15 March - And the LA Times reports on Arizona's reanimated corpse of a birther bill.
"On Wednesday, Republican state Rep. Carl Seel’s “birther bill” passed a Senate committee on a party-line vote, the Arizona Republic reported. The bill, passed 4 to 2, would require candidates for president and vice president to submit affidavits to the Arizona secretary of state vowing that they meet the constitutional requirements to hold office, including being born in the U.S.
Although Republican state Sen. Judy Burges voted for the bill, she complained that it had been watered down, the Republic reported. An earlier version required the secretary of state to certify candidates' citizenship.
Meanwhile, Republican Secretary of State Ken Bennett is expected to call for aspiring chief executives to complete a form that asks about their place of birth. "There has been a lot of media attention devoted to this, so we wanted to make sure there is a standardized form," spokesman Matthew Roberts told the Associated Press."
14 March - Just in case you were curious about some of the people who Joe Arpaio feels are good enough to be on his "posse":
"Arpaio wants his army of 3,000 volunteer posse members to look like sworn deputies and sometimes perform the same duties. But an in-depth project by CBS 5 Investigates uncovered a number of posse members with arrests for assault, drug possession, domestic violence, sex crimes against children, disorderly conduct, impersonating an officer - and the list goes on.
These are crimes that are not tolerated in many professions, especially professions with an implied authority."
Then there's this charmer:
"One posse member with an extensive disciplinary file is Douglas Clark, who also happens to be a constable. Clark has been counseled for rolling a county vehicle, driving 91 mph in a 45-mph zone, using his siren when not on a call, and using red-and-blue lights installed on his personal vehicle to look for something his wife had lost in the road.
CBS 5 Investigates tracked Clark down and asked him if he feels he is above the law.
"I can't answer anything on posse stuff," Clark told us. "I'm forbidden to answer anything with the sheriff's office."
And then there's the accusation from 2007 that a driver backed into Clark's car and then left the scene. Clark allegedly followed the car, rammed the vehicle and held the driver and passenger at gunpoint, all while he was off-duty.
Yet, Clark still remains in the posse."
Oh, and remember how Arpaio insisted that the Cold Case Posse didn't cost the taxpayers a dime?
"While they don't draw a salary, posse members operate within taxpayer protection and under the county's insurance."
15 March - Meanwhile, in Alabama, Hugh McInnish files a petition with the Supreme Court of Alabama.
(Scribd link here)
"(D) Widespread popular opinion holds that Obama does not meet the Constitutional requirements for the President of the United States in that he is not a natural born citizen as required by U.S. Const. Art II, §1, cl.5. Although the larger news organizations have mostly avoided the issue of Obama's eligibility, popular opinion in the Nation, particularly in Alabama, is aflame with rhetoric denouncing him, accusing him of fraud, and asserting that he is not the de jure President of the United States. This 1S especially prominent in the electronic media. (See e.g. http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=98546 which shows an index of more than 200 articles devoted to this subject.)
He's actually citing World Nut Daily as a source of his data.
"Respondent respectfully requests that this Court issue a Writ of Mandamus to the Secretary of State requiring her to demand that Obama cause a certified copy of his Bona Fide birth certificate to be delivered to her direct from the government official who is In charge of the records in which it is stored, and to make the receipt of such a prerequisite to his name being placed on the Alabama ballot for the March 13, 2012 primary election, and on the ballot for the November 6, 2012 general election."
Funny, but wouldn't that then make said document completely legal under the Full Faith and Credit clause?? And it's really quite strange he asks that the court demand a copy of the birth certificate, because he THEN goes on later to cite the Corsi/Arpaio muppet show and Mara Zebest's debunked "report" as "proof" that Obama has a forged birth certificate.
Hugh McInnish has a past history of racism BTW.
15 March - Think Progress notes the animated corpse of an Arizona birther bill.
"The state’s Secretary of State Ken Bennett is behind the measure, whose spokesperson said, “There has been a lot of media attention devoted to this, so we wanted to make sure there is a standardized form.” The media devoted to birtherism has mostly arisen because of the endless attempts by Arizona Sherriff Joe Arpaio to prove that the President is not a citizen. Arpaio, who was a strong advocate for Arizona’s “show-us-your-papers” anti-immigration bill, has been planning to try to keep Obama off the 2012 ballot for nearly a year."
16 March - Esquire Magazine writes about the undead Arizona birther bill.
"This is the third one of these in as many years, and last year's was so nutty that Governor Jan Brewer vetoed it, which means it must have been written in crayon. Undaunted, though, the Tea Partiers in the legislature — who, as we know, are just concerned about The Deficit and The Bailouts — loaded up the mule again this session. Their colleagues are simply throwing up their hands at this point.
"Yesterday," said Democratic state senator David Lujan, who was one of two votes on the committee against the measure, "I asked if this had anything to do with President Obama's birth certificate, and they told me that Sheriff Joe's investigation had given the idea added value.
"It is frustrating. We have something like 250,000 people unemployed in Arizona, and we're occupied with stuff like this. A lot of people, and not just Democrats, are just frustrated with the activities of the Tea Party folks. I don't know what keeps them coming back like this. I really don't. Not with everything else we should be addressing."
Three years in a row.
16 March - Philip Berg gets to hear a familiar sound:
"March 16, 2012 Discontinued 03/16/2012 Berg, Philip J. Berg, Philip J. Petitioner Document Name: the motion to strike and dimiss is granted and the hearing in this matter scheduled for Comment: 3/19/12 is CANCELLED."
And Berg gets to score another birther failure.
16 March - Van Irion certainly has the most important aspect of being a birther attorney down cold. Namely whining and screaming after being told "no".
"There’s an old saying in law: reasonable minds can differ on almost any argument. Our motion for injunction was an exception to the rule. No reasonable, unbiased person would have denied this motion. "
You use those words, "reasonable and unbiased". I do not think they mean what you think they mean.
"Essentially the Georgia Supreme Court said: We deny your request for relief that would have harmed no one, and we have so much contempt for your request that we’re not going to bother explaining our shocking ruling."
Maybe because the request itself was contemptible??
"Both LLF and Georgia Representative Mark Hatfield pointed out to the Court the date on which the Secretary of State planned to certify the election. Yet the Court sat on our filings for seven days, then ruled on the day certification had been planned.
If we had been given one or two days we could have filed an emergency motion with the U.S. Supreme Court. Currently the Justice assigned to review such motions from Georgia is the most Constitutional originalist, Justice Clarence Thomas. "
You mean the guy who rubber-stamps his decisions "whatever Alito said"????
"Liberty Legal Foundation will continue to fight this case. The Georgia Supreme Court denied our injunction, but it has not ruled on our underlying case. When it dismisses our case we will appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court."
Where it will be denied.
"We are also still fighting the eligibility issue in Tennessee and Arizona"
Did you actually figure out who to file against in those states???
Oh, and send money.
"Please continue to support our efforts."
