In today's dispatches, the GOP seems unwilling to get the stink of birther off of themselves. Dr. Orly figures the best way to get what she wants is to threaten federal judges, attorneys, political party leaders, media heads, and anyone else she doesn't like.
It's starting to look like 2008 again, as the birthers start to dust off the moldy oldies of birtherdom. Jerome Corsi tries to sit the media down to a dramatic reading of The Postman's Tale. The problem is that nobody outside of World Nut Daily and birtherstan seems willing to accept hearsay evidence as anything other than "yeah, so?"
Dr. Orly can't seem to understand the bromance between Corsi and Arpaio. President Barack O'Bama lakes a wee bit o' the olde potshot against the birthers. And movie producer turned failed PUMA Bettina Viviano makes a reappearance in birtherstan, with more moldy oldies from the 2008 election.
13 March - Mediaite comments on the GOP's continued flirtation with the birthers.
"Bashir reminded viewers that unlike Stearns, Obama’s chief rival in 2008 actually pushed back against the conspiracy theorists. John McCain famously told a supporter who believed Obama was an Arab that he was a good American who he simply had political differences with. Bashir asked S.E. Cupp why Republican leaders like John Boehner aren’t publicly condemning birthers, or at least telling them their information is inaccurate. Cupp said it’s because that’s not their job, adding that voters will ultimately decide whether birthers in Congress will keep their jobs or not. Bashir argued that sitting members of Congress should be held to a certain standard, and if a party member makes an objectively absurd statement as Stearns did, he should be publicly rebuked by the leadership.
Cupp shot back that members of the Democratic party have made similar eyebrow-raising statements in the past. Julian Epstein disagreed, pointing to when MoveOn.org infamously called General David Petraeus “General Betray-Us” and some Democrats came out and condemned it. Cupp said that it’s only been a smattering of Republicans that have waded their toes into the birther pool, but Epstein said it’s been a surprisingly large number of Republicans who have shared birther leanings. Epstein suggested that the Republicans risk hurting their chances among independents if their members keep saying things like this about the president."
16 March - In her appeal of her car against Michael Astrue of the SSA, Dr. Orly files a:
MOTION FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT IN FAVOR OF THE APPELLANT
REQUEST TO APPOINT A SPECIAL PROSECUTER TO PROSECUTE ELECTIONS
FRAUD, FORGERY AND HIGH TREASON COMMITTED BY BARACK OBAMA'S
FRAUDULENT USE OF A CONNECTICUT SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER ISSUED TO A
RESIDENT OF CONNECTICUT BORN IN 1890"
Yeah, that's that title.
(Scribd link here)
Oh, and she gets threaty here too:
"15. Due to enormous threat to the national Security of the United States of America this court should Sua Sponte appoint a special prosecutor of panel to investigate Obama's use of a stolen social Security number. not taking an action in prosecuting this case of elections fraud will expose this court to charges of High treason as well."
Can she has sanctions now PLEASE????
16 March - But Michael Astrue isn't the only one who gets a love letter from Dr. Orly. White House counsel Kathy Ruemmler gets her own special letter in THAT case's appeal as well.
(Scribd link here)
"Defrauding the whole nation by presenting a cheap forgery and claiming it to be valid true and correct copy of a document does not represent a valid "advice and assist" by the White House counsel. For "advice" like this the White .House counsel should be stripped of his position and disbarred, as well as sent together with the client to serve a lengthy prison tern. Criminal enterprise,criminal collusion does not represent an advice protected by FOIA and envisioned by FOIA."
And she thinks highly of herself:
"Any time Taitz conducts a hearing or trial, and Obama is subpoenaed to appear and produce documents, he is too scared to appear, his attorneys are too scared to appear, as they know that no judge in any hearing would deem a computer image to be a document,and they know that they have nothing else, but this computer generated forgery."
Gee, was Joe Arpaio too scared to show up in Georgia too when you ordered HIM with an invalid subpoena??
19 March - Seems that Chief Editor Korir isn't the ONLY one to have dusted off the Bomford birth certificate of late:
22 Feb 2012 - (NESARA News) Obama's hidden birth certificate!
Reprinted 6 March 2012 - (USA Hitman) Obama’s Hidden Birth Certificate!
They have both the Bomford AND Lucas Smith's footie fake as "proof". Plus, they added their own twist to the Bomford story!!
"Letter from Kitau in Mombasa , Kenya :
“I happen to be Kenyan. I was born 1 month before Obama at Mombasa medical center. I am a teacher here at the MM Shaw Primary School in Kenya . I compared my birth certificate to the one that has been put out by Taitz and mine is exactly the same. I even have the same registrar and format. The type is identical. I am by nature a skeptical person. I teach science here and challenge most things that cannot be proven. So I went to an official registrar today and pulled up the picture on the web. They magnified it and determined it to be authentic. There is even a plaque with Registrar Lavender’s name on it as he was a Brit and was in charge of the Registrar office from 1959 until January of 1964. The reason the date on the certificate says republic of Kenya is that we were a republic when the “copy” of the original was ordered. I stress the word “copy.” My copy also has republic of Kenya . So what you say is true about Kenya not being a republic at the time of Obama’s birth, however it was a republic when the copy was ordered.
The birth certificate is genuine. It will be authenticated by a forensic auditor. We are very proud Obama was born here. We have a shrine for him and there are many people who remember his birth here as he had a white mother. They are being interviewed now by one of your media outlets.
Fortunately, they even have pictures of his parents with him immediately after his birth at the Mombasa hospital with the hospital in the background.
It will be a proud day for us when it is proven that he was born here and a Kenyan became the most powerful man in the world.
I encourage anyone to come here and visit. I will be happy to take you and show you the pictures at the hospital myself as well as my document and many others that are identical to what Taitz posted. God Bless. Kitau.”
Interesting letter. Especially since it seems to be taken completely from a 3 August 2009 comment that "Kitau" left at Urban Legends
"Americans for Freedom of Information" also makes an appearance with a repeat of their 2009 April Fool's story. So that's two ADMITTED pranks that the birthers are still believing!!!
Everything old is still crap again.
19 March - How charming.
"State Rep. John. A. Torbett, R-Gaston, reportedly posted a picture of Obama wearing a turban last week.
“Next time vote for the REAL American,” the caption under the photo stated.
Instead of the picture, the top post on his Facebook page is now a status update about its removal."
19 March - During the Corsi and Arpaio muppet show on the first of March, one of the claims was of a "Government Worker" to claims to have been introduced to Obama as a "foreign student" at the house of Bill Ayers parents.
At the time it was suspected that Corsi was referring to a 25 September 2009 story by one Stephen Diamond in regards to the claim by a retired postal worker, Allen Hulton, Part of the Diamond version had this section:
"Mr. Obama explained that he had taken the train out from Chicago to visit the Ayers’ in order to thank them for their help with his “education.” At this time, Mr. Obama had recently graduated from Columbia and would soon enter Harvard Law School. Hulton and Obama “spoke for a few minutes, first chatting about the Ayers family,” Hulton said. Hulton said he did not learn whether the help Obama received from the Ayers’ was financial or in some other form."
Here's a problem. Obama graduated Columbia in 1983, but didn't enroll in Harvard until 1988.
Well, both swift boat liar Jerome Corsi AND Jack Cashill of the American Stinker have articles, and yes, it's Allen Hulton alright.
19 March - First, the Corsi World Nut Daily article:
"Allen Hulton, who was commended for 39 years of honorable service with the USPS, has given a sworn affidavit to investigators commissioned by Maricopa County, Ariz., Sheriff Joe Arpaio to determine whether Obama is eligible for Arizona’s 2012 election ballot. Hulton has recorded about three hours of video interviews with WND.
Hulton says that in conversations with Mary Ayers while on his route he learned of the couple’s enthusiasm and support for a black foreign student. One bright, warm Chicagoland day, he recounts, he met the student who fit Mary Ayers’ description in front of the Ayers home in Glen Ellyn, Ill. That young man, Hulton is convinced, was Barack Obama."
"He says that Mary Ayers told him the student’s name, but that it was a “strange name” that he could not remember, even though at the time it sounded African to him.
“I was taken aback by how enthusiastic she was about him,” Hulton says. “And I believe she said he was from either Kenya or Indonesia, and I favor Indonesia in my recollection.”
I'm distinctly smelling something fishy here.
"About a year after discussing with Mary Ayers the foreign student she and her husband were supporting, Hulton recalls meeting a young black male on the sidewalk in front of the Ayers home.
Hulton describes the man as being in his early 20s, noting that he was tall, thin, had a light complexion and that his ears stuck out.
“He greeted me,” Hulton says. “He was very polite, dressed nicely, but informally – slacks and a dress shirt – and he spoke with no accent. Immediately this young black man entered into conversation with me. He told me he had taken the train out from Chicago and had come to thank the Ayers family personally for having helped him with his education.”
All the article says is that Hulton ran this route from "late 1986 to 1997" So we can't pinpoint the date. However, I will note that at the press conference, the claim was that his man was INTRODUCED to Barack Obama, not that he "met a man that he was later convinced was Barack Obama."
In addition, there's nothing in the World Net Daily article that links the "foreign student" the Ayers were supposedly helping, and Barack Obama, as one and the same person.
The smell of seafood past its prime is getting a lot stronger.
"Hulton remembers asking the young man what his plans were for the future.
“He looked right at me and told me he was going to be president of the United States,” Hulton says.
“There was a little bit of a grin on his face when he said it – he sounded sure of himself, but not arrogant. I know how people will say things because they have an ambition, but it did not come across that way,” Hulton says. “It came across as if this young black male was telling me he was going to be president, almost as if it were the statement of a scientific fact that had already been determined, as if his being president had been already pre-arranged.”
Hulton says the claim made him speechless.
“I kind of stuttered a response and said that nowadays anything is possible. I wished him good luck with his ambition,” he says."
I'm marking this because I want to come back to it in a minute.
"Immediately, Hulton associated the young black man with the foreign student Mary Ayers had mentioned to him so enthusiastically about a year earlier.
“I remembered the conversation I had with Mary, and I associated this young man with the foreign student she had discussed with me, because Mary said they were supporting this foreign student, and the young black man I met outside the Ayers’ home said he had come to Glen Ellyn to thank the Ayers in person for helping him with his education.”
So HULTON supposedly made the connection, not that the Ayers told him Obama was the "foreign student" in question??
Hearsay evidence is hearsay.
“The facial and physical characteristics, as well as candidate Obama’s voice, matched that of the young black male I met in front of the Ayers’ home,” Hulton says in the affidavit he signed Nov. 12, 2011, for Sheriff Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse investigation.
“I am positive that the black male I spoke with in front of the Ayers’ house that day was indeed a young Barack Obama.”
Again, nothing to link this supposed "foreign student" with Obama though.
The fishy smell is getting quite rank.
So what did the Corsi-led "Cold Case Posse" find?? Well, they didn't bother to contact the State of Hawaii to confirm anything. They didn't bother contacting any non-Corsi approved source to confirm anything. But they DID manage to contact the postman of Bill Ayer's parents.
Really?? Is this the best they could do??
There's a video as well
The dramatic music doesn't add much to it. However, at about 2:05 an interesting exchange happens.
Corsi - "Do you recall the conversation in the early 1990′s with Mary?" (Mary Ayers)
Hulton - "Yeah. One day she came up to the door when I, um when I came up to the house with mail. And, uh, after a greeting, she started talking to me enthusiastically about this young black student that they were helping out and she referred to him as a "foreign student", and he had a strange name, she mentioned it, I didn't remember it at the time."
At 2:47, Corsi asks if Hulton ever met the "foreign student". Hulton says that he doesn't know if it was some months or a year later, but there was a "young black man" he met near their house.
Why is this interesting?? Because Corsi states this conversation was in the "early 1990's".
Barack Obama graduated from Harvard Law School in 1991, and accepted a two year fellowship at the University of Chicago Law School, which lead to twelve years teaching at that school.
So in other words, it's highly unlikely that Obama was a student during the time these encounters supposedly took place.
In addition, World Nut Daily posts a copy of Hulton's Affidavit (PDF here)
"9. In the early 1990s, I spoke with Mary Ayers who told me she was impressed with a foreign, black student. I do not recall from what country she said he was. I recall that the student had an unusual, foreign sounding name. Mary stated Thomas Ayers was helping this student through school financially."
In the early 1990's, Barack Obama would have been graduating from law school and wouldn't be a student anymore. Not to mention the fact that it goes against the same claim from Hulton in 2009 when he said this meeting took place in the 1980's.
Pikes Place Market doesn't smell like fish as much this claim does. A tidal flat at low tide doesn't smell like fish as much as this does. A Star Kist packing plant doesn't smell like fish as much as this does.
19 March - As for Jack Cashill, one of the first things he does is kiss Corsi's hindquarters.
"A few days ago I got a call asking whether I knew anything about the Ayers family mailman. I had heard of him, I said. I remembered liberal blogger Steven Diamond having interviewed the fellow a few years back, but I paid it little mind, as the information seemed too limited to pursue.
The caller then sent me a video interview with the mailman by WND sleuth Jerome Corsi. The video made me sit up and pay attention. The mailman is a real person. His name is Alan Hulton. He seems entirely credible, and he has a story to tell."
Actually Stephen Diamond is more of a conservative anymore, not a liberal. (He's even more of a disgruntled PUMA type that hangs around the formerly sane "NoQuarter") And I have to wonder how the caller got the video interview, since Corsi didn't release it until 19 March 2012…..the same day both Corsi and Cashill's articles appeared.
What's funny though is that Cashill points out that Corsi seems to have led Hulton on.
"Hulton's interviews with Diamond and Corsi are consistent in every major detail save for dates. Hulton suggested to Diamond that the sidewalk meeting took place in the mid-'80s, but Corsi suggests to Hulton that it was in the early 1990s, and Hulton does not correct him. Hulton clearly does not remember the date. If I were to speculate, I would guess 1988, the year Obama started Harvard Law School. Presuming Hulton actually met Obama, the "education" in question would almost surely have been law school."
How very…..interesting. Can we say "leading the witness"???
19 March - The reason I wanted to highlight the portion where Hulton claims this "young black man" told him he was going to be President of the United States is because Loren Collins notes a certain similarity about Hulton's story.
World Nut Daily, 19 March 2012 - Allen Hulton: “He looked right at me and told me he was going to be president of the United States,” Hulton says."
"Anti-Mullah", 16 November 2009 - James "RaceBannon" Bancroft: "He told me he wanted to be President of the US someday. I remember lightly smiling and commenting that maybe by the time he gets to be 40 or so, America will be ready for a Black man to be President and I wished him luck. "
Rense.com, 20 November 2008 - Tom Fife: "Yes, it is true. This is not some idle talk. He is already born and he is educated and being groomed to be president right now. You will be impressed to know that he has gone to the best schools of Presidents. He is what you call "Ivy League". You don't believe me, but he is real and I even know his name. His name is Barack. His mother is white and American and his father is black from Africa. That's right, a chocolate baby! And he's going to be your President."
Free Republic, 21 April 2011 - A friend of "Brown Deer": "One evening I was at a party somewhere on Oahu, Hawai'i, between Kailua and Sunset Beach, in what I think must have been the year 1977. A friend whose identity I have forgotten pointed to a teenaged, thin fellow who certainly was Barack Obama and asked me: "Do you know that he is being groomed for the Presidency?". The thought was so preposterous that I rejected it out of hand."
As Loren Collins points out:
"It's apparently insufficient to have merely met Obama, or even for absolute strangers to be let in on his darkest secrets. No, they all seem compelled to treat him as a true-to-life Manchurian Candidate, as if mysterious forces were planning his Presidency decades ago."
19 March - Not surprisingly, the primates at Birther Report are peeing on the carpet again in excitement over Corsi's latest floater.
"Anonymous said…[Reply] The vetting has begun!!!!!
Unreal that it's taken 3+ years for this information to come to light! While I'm extremely glad and grateful that it has, I also am realistic enough to know that it may be too late to do anything about it. The way I see it no one has the gonads to do anything to the "teflon man". I pray everyday that I'm wrong!
March 19, 2012 8:46 PM"
For those that call this hearsay, I say that this is a witness. Since Arpaio had the press conference, others will feel comfortable coming forward. We don't know what will be the death nail, probably not one thing but rather the accumulation of deception and fraud no matter which way you look. But I keep asking myself, why BHO of all people?????
March 19, 2012 9:45 PM"
Wonder if Ayers got a hold of this post office's PICA stamp and cut it up?
Believe me, THERE IS NO WAY OBAMA IS LAUGHING…HE IS TAKING MEDS TO SLEEP AND SMOKING LIKE A CHIMNEY.
THE JIG IS UP…
March 19, 2012 11:31 PM"
Though there are a few Doubting Thomases:
"Ralph Swain said…[Reply]
Oh please. If this is what we're reduced to, I've had enough. This is hearsay. Let's stick to the facts of Nobama's constitutional ineligibility. I mean, come on. This crap is ridiculous.
March 19, 2012 7:44 PM"
Obama is laughing if this is vetting. Every day that passes with no arrest or congressional inquiry further solidifies his grip on power. If you think any of these clowns can beat him in nov when they are not even courageous enough to say publicly what we all know about who he is just shows they are pawns in this takeover. If sheriff joe cannot get him arrested forget it. These stories are nice but we have past the time for stories. If action can't be taken now it likely never will be later.
March 19, 2012 7:54 PM"
"That young man, Hulton is convinced, was Barack Obama."
LOL, you got to be kidding, the late 80's or early 90's and this guy remembers him. He's convinced it was Obama but can he prove it was Obama? This is the secret witness, they may as well have reinterviewed Tim Adams for all this is worth. Maybe it was a different black student.
March 19, 2012 8:18 PM"
Here is the problem with his story. He doesn't say that the black man he met was the "foreign" student. here may have been a dozen or so foreign students and maybe some domestic students.
At the press conference we were led to believe that Mrs. ayers had said that Obama was the foreign student.
This will disappear quickly.
March 19, 2012 8:24 PM"
And at least one could care less if it's actually true or not:
"Anonymous said…[Reply] What it does do is sow seeds of doubt towards the Obamboozler in the general election, regardless of whether it's considered hearsay. March 19, 2012 10:56 PM"
You know, what amazes me about all this is that the birthers won't believe government records, believe judges are ignorant about the law and the Constitution, are perfectly willing to scream "forgery" at the drop of a hat. But give them a retired postman who claims to have had a conversation 20-30 years ago with no evidence to back it up, and it's somehow simon-pure gospel.
20 March - Other people are finding Corsi's claims about Hulton a bit rank. For example, Doc Conspiracy.
"Whether the elderly mail character is trying to save his country with a lie, or more likely just telling a true story embellished to be interesting, the details don’t hang together and there is no corroboration.
Perhaps seeing that there’s really nothing to the story, Cashill and Corsi dump everything but the kitchen sink in other unrelated smears to bulk up the word count."
20 March - Wonkette chimes in.
"Well, sometimes such wonderful people with perfect recall (“eidetic memory”) show up in real life too, like this mailman, who has sworn to Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s “posse” of birthers looking into the worse-than-Watergate coverup about … you know … things, that he totally absolutely remembers meeting Barack Obama outside the home of the mother of domestic terrorist Bill Ayers, and the mother of domestic terrorist Bill Ayers told this mailman that Bill Ayers was helping a “foreign student” with a funny name from either Indonesia or Kenya through Harvard? Then the mailman met Barack Obama, and totally remembers the young man he met the one time, because he was very polite and nicely dressed (sounds like our Bamz!) and he said, “My name is Barack Obama, remember it because I will be president of the United States some day, after I have denied having more than a passing acquaintance with the domestic terrorist son of the woman whose house we are standing outside.” Something like that."
20 March - "Squeeky Fromm" chimes in as well.
"But, because all the really fun information came to Hulton via Mary Ayers, who died in 2000, this is hearsay evidence. Hulton is not able to testify of his own knowledge whether or not the person truly was a foreign student, or where he was from, because all this information came from the deceased Mary Ayers. Hulton can’t provide probative evidence of the name of the person he met, where the person was from, or whether he was a foreign student or not.
What can Hulton testify to of either his own knowledge, or from statements made by the young black man he met ??? Here it is:
My name is Allen Hulton and sometime in the late 1980s or early 1990′s I met a young Black man in Chicago who I think was Barack Obama, and he told me that he was going to be President one day.
WOW!!! What a tremendous piece of probative evidence that Jerome Corsi, Ph.D has uncovered!!!
Sadly, this is about par for World Net Daily, Jerome “Jerry” Corsi, Sheriff Joe Arpaio, and The Cold Case Posse. And they all wonder why their silly little investigations get ignored by the major media."
20 March - Dr. Orly can't seem to understand why Joe Arpaio just isn't in to her. (malware and redirect warning)
"When I subpoenaed Sheriff Arpaio to testify in court in GA, he used an attorney to write a letter to me, saying that it is burdensome for him. "
Funny, you weren't screaming "traitor" and demanding Arpaio's arrest though. Wonder why……
"Somebody wrote to me that Arpaio is close to 80, he is an old man, it is hard for him to go to Ga and testify."
Doesn't stop him from flying all over the country for photo ops and media appearances though.
"However Mike Zullo is not an old man, he must be around 50. He could appear at trial in GA and testify, as an investigator assisting Sheriff Arpaio. If they can profit from this by selling the book with Corsi, which is self published by Joseph Farah from WND, they could testify at trial about those findings."
Maybe because the last thing they want is to be under oath and cross examined about their "evidence"??
20 March - The Phoenix New Times is also a tad bit dubious about Corsi's latest find.
"Mailman Allen Hulton -- who was only identified as a "retired government employee" at the "birther" press conference -- has taken an oath swearing that Ayers' mother told him about a "foreign, black" student at her home, and that guy with the "unusual foreign sounding name" hinted to him some time in the '90s that he had a "prearranged" presidency.
Clearly, Hulton realized in 2008 that this was the one-and-only Barack Hussein Obama.
Remember, this is just part of the evidence that Arpaio has taken in to call for a "bi-partisan congressional investigation," as Arpaio actually thinks the president's birth certificate is about as real as Dolly Parton's chest."
20 March - I can only assume at this point that Joseph Farah is having an extended snit fit over the failure of the Corsi / Arpaio muppet show and the refusal of the real media in this country to take their claims seriously.
"The most well-read news story anywhere got no mention on Fox News, CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, the New York Times or any other so-called “mainstream” news outlet – a laughable adjective.
The story wasn’t overlooked. It was deliberately spiked. The media knew it was coming. They didn’t want any part of it.
But it gets worse.
Big time talk-radio was tipped off on the story, as well – in advance. They didn’t bite, either. Too hot."
And by what criteria did Farah use to claim that The Postman's Tale was the "most well-read news story anywhere"??
We don't know. Because Joseph Farah doesn't state why he makes that claim. Not surprisingly, he offers absolutely no evidence or proof to back this claim up. We don't know if he's using a web counter, or some analytical tool, or if his 70's pornstar mustache told him.
"Why didn’t they touch it?
We have more insight than ever before.
It’s not that the facts aren’t compelling. It’s not that the story is not of interest. It’s not that the story is not being talked about at water coolers across America.
So what is it?"
"Joked about at water coolers across America" maybe.
"Every poll shows the same thing – half the country suspects Obama has been lying, deceiving and conducting this cover-up all along – with the media serving as his willing accomplices."
You mean every Wenzel / WND sponsored poll that you then misreport???
"A few weeks ago, the media, in lockstep, ignored the first report by the first law-enforcement investigation into the eligibility issue."
Because there wasn't anything there but debunked claims from Corsi.
"They are collectively closing their eyes to the truth and to the news in a desperate bid for self-preservation. But the more they play this game, the less they deserve to survive."
Funny, this sounds more like World Nut Daily.
20 March - President Obama takes another potshot at the birthers.
"While receiving a formal certificate of Irish heritage at a St. Patrick's Day celebration on Tuesday, President Barack Obama didn't miss a beat in taking a jab at the so-called "birther" movement.
"This will have a special place of honor alongside my birth certificate," he joked, to great laughter.
Ireland's Taoiseach (prime minister) Enda Kenny presented Obama with the certificate at a White House reception in honor of the president's Irish roots."
20 March - World Nut Daily reports on another Birther Ballot Jihad in Florida
"The case was filed by Larry Klayman of Freedom Watch USA on behalf of Democrat Michael Voeltz, “a registered member of the Democrat Party, voter, and taxpayer in Broward County, who was an eligible elector for the Florida Primary of Jan. 31, 2012.”
The fact that he's claiming to be a member of the "Democrat" party is a red-flag that there's a rat in the woodpile. It's the "Democratic party". Only the right-wing use the "Democrat party" thing.
Particularly when you take a look at the original complaint. (Scribd link here) The term "Democratic party" is never used, and a real member of the Democratic party would have never used the term "Democrat party".
Like I said, I smell a rat.
20 March - Media Matters takes note of Corsi's interview of Allen Hulton.
"If birthers are frustrated that nobody takes them seriously, their latest big story, which is premised on stories told by Bill Ayers' parents' former postman (not a typo), is certainly not going to help matters.
In what is probably the biggest mail-related flop since Kevin Costner's The Postman, WorldNetDaily super sleuth and Where's The Birth Certificate? author Jerome Corsi is out with a new report today suggesting the Ayers family paid for "foreigner" Obama's education.
The allegations are based on Corsi's conversations with former USPS postman Allen Hulton, who says that he used to deliver mail to Bill Ayers' parents in a Chicago suburb in the late 80s and early 90s. This should prove to be rock-solid.
According to Hulton and his impressive penchant for remembering decades-old small talk, Bill Ayers' mother once boasted about "this young black student they were helping out, and she referred to him as a foreign student." Hulton also explains that Mary Ayers gave him the student's name, but, as Corsi writes, "it was a 'strange name' that he could not remember, even though at the time it sounded African to him."
Though he couldn't remember the exact student's name, Hulton does "believe she said he was from either Kenya or Indonesia, and I favor Indonesia in my recollection." Uh huh."
20 March - Rep. Cliff Stearns may just be the Representative from Birtherstan.
"Rep. Cliff Stearns (R-FL), the chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations, reiterated on Tuesday concerns over whether President Barack Obama had an authentic birth certificate.
“I am, shall we say, looking at all the evidence,” Stearns said, according to The Hill.
He noted that Republican Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Arizona announced in early March that his investigation into Obama’s birth certificate found the document was most likely a “computer-generated forgery.”
“I think we are just going to hold in abeyance a final decision until we hear, you know, some of these people seem to have legitimate concerns, so I don’t think it is unreasonable just to see what they have to say,” Stearns said."
21 March - Dr. Orly claims another birther ballot jihad, this one in Maine (malware and redirect warning)
"CHALLENGE TO OBAMA WAS FILED IN MAINE. TODAY WE HAVE ELECTION CHALLENGES AND LEGAL ACTIONS IN MOST STATES OF THE UNION
Posted on | March 21, 2012 "
"hi orly, maine ballot challenge will be filed today by sr. engineer paul breton ahead of tomorrow’s deadline for primary challenges. its based on your GA case files because the party caucus “certifies” the candidate. you will receive copy."
Problem #1 - Using Dr. Orly's case files? The same ones that caused her to lose to an empty table??
Problem #2 - Maine isn't having a primary election. They had a caucus on 27 Feb 2012.
21 March - Birther Report has a video of Bettina Viviano, claiming that Bill Clinton told her directly that Obama wasn't eligible.
"1:00:15 - The ORIGINAL BIRTHERS were Bill & Hillary Clinton. Bettina heard it DIRECTLY out of their mouths.
1:01:42 - She has personal knowledge Hillary made a deal the night before she stepped down. Her friends said the Obama and Clinton camps were yelling and screaming at each other for 3 days in the ugliest exhibition of politics they’d ever seen.
1:02:00 - She claims it was widely known at the time that John McCain was not qualified as a natural born citizen either. Link
1:04:00 - From a top Democrat Party leader: George Soros had meetings with both Barack and Hillary telling them his agenda was to tear this country to the ground. Obama reportedly said “no problem.”"
Who is Bettina Viviano anyway?? Well, she's a Producer, with her last movie credit being the Adam Sandler bomb "Jack and Jill" in 2011.
However, she's also a PUMA. She was the Producer/Literary Manager for the never produced PUMA documentary called "We Will Not Be Silenced" She was also interviewed by Sher Zieve at the Pest and eFail on 21 November 2011, where she made the claim:
""I knew that, being in the film business, I was SUPPOSED to be a far left Democrat or face being blacklisted and abused by my colleagues..
What we saw…the ugly, vicious, nasty voter fraud committed by the Obama camp, the DNC and ACORN, has scarred me for life."….
So, rather than wait for one of my friends or neighbors to report how much I hated Obama and his disgusting, vile, ridiculous “destroy America” piece of garbage legislation, DEATHCARE, I decided to just report MYSELF.
I called the White House message line, got a live operator, told her I hate Obama and Obamacare, and that I had my bag packed for the FEMA Camp if she wanted to send someone to come get me. Surprisingly, she laughed and giggled and hung up. I really was waiting for the Secret Service visit but it never came, which kind-of angers me because I have Facebook friends who have made very benign comments about Obama and have received the visits from the guys in the black SUVs. I guess you haven’t arrived until you have been the recipient of Obama’s attempt to shut everyone up….. "
A reference to her also showed up at Dr. Orly's house o' malware on 10 June 2009,, where Dr. Orly said in response:
"I met documentary director Gigi Gaston and producer Bettina Viviano, they are remarkable ladies and Gigi shot my first video at he house, while feeding her baby and doing a million other things at the same time. I am trying to schedule meetings with PUMA members in other states."
The Birther Report article seems to have been sourced from an 18 March 2012 article at "PolitiJIm", and taken from a 16 March 2012 interview at "Red, Right, and Blue" blogtalk radio, And it seems both Viviano and "PolitiJim" are believers of the "tinfoil hat PUMA brigade" that believe that Obama was responsible for the deaths of Bill Gwalenty and Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones.
21 March - In a self-serving press release, Dr. Orly threatens the chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, Rep Debbie Wasserman-Schultz. (malware and redirect warning)
"Dr. Orly Taitz ESQ, attorney leading the legal charges against Barack Obama, provided Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, with a notice of evidence of elections fraud, use of a computer generated forgery instead of a valid birth certificate, use of a stolen Social Security number and a name that is not legally his by a candidate in 2012 election Barack Hussein Obama. Pleadings and exhibits from Farrar v Obama trial in GA, as well as confirmation from sheriff Arpaio was forwarded to Ms. Wasserman-Schultz."
Did you also send to Rep. Wasserman-Schultz the fact that the judge found your "evidence" unconvincing and that you lost to an empty table?? Did you also send to Rep. Wasserman-Schultz the fact that the Corsi/Arpaio muppet show didn't consider any evidence or facts that went against their already-debunked claims??
Of course you didn't.
"Ms. Wasserman-Schultz was advised that if the DNC knowingly certifies candidate Obama as a presidential candidate in 2012 general election, DNC and Ms. Schultz personally will be held accountable and will be included as additional defendants in a RICO (Racketeering Influenced corrupt Organizations) legal action, as well as legal action for complicity to elections fraud, forgery, wire fraud, Social Security fraud and treason against the United States of America"
Threatening a United States Representative with treason. This should go well.
21 March - And now for your listening pleasure, we have James Manning and Jerome Corsi discussing Joe Arpaio.
21 March - Oh, it gets better (malware and redirect warning)
"I NEED YOUR HELP IN GETTING NAMES AND ADDRESSES OF THE PRESIDENTS OF THE MAJOR NETWORKS TO PUT THEM ON NOTICE OF POSSIBLE RICO CHARGES AGAINST THEM
Posted on | March 21, 2012 ."
I suspect they'll be less than impressed with your threats as well.
21 March - One gets the feeling that Corsi and Arpaio are really trying to double-down on the dumb since the failure of their 1 March muppet show. Because now Arpaio is demanding the Selective Service investigate Obama's SS registration.
(PDF here from the Maricopa County Sheriff's office. Gee, looks like taxpayer's money to me)
"Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has sent a letter to the Director of the U.S. Selective Service System headquarters in Arlington, Virginia. The Sheriff is asking the agency to conduct an investigation of Barack Obama’s Selective Service registration form from 1980 after the preliminary findings of the Sheriff’s six-month- long investigation determined that it may be a forgery."
Yeah, good luck with that skippy. Somehow I doubt they'll accept "it's legitimate you overblown asshat" as an answer.
"The letter also asked Director Lawrence Romo to produce the original form so forensic document examiners can analyze the document to determine if it is authentic."
Nope, they won't accept that as an answer.
"Sheriff’s investigators were able to replicate the alleged forgery by obtaining a circa 1980 pica stamp and a circa “2008” date plug. Investigators were able to clearly demonstrate the “80” (which should have actually read 1980) in Obama’s Selective Service Registration form resulted from cutting out the “08” from an authentic “2008” date plug, and inverting the “08” to read “80” when the cut plug was loaded into the year slot on the 1980 pica stamp."
So in other words, since the "investigators" were able to forge a duplicate, this means the original is a forgery??
21 March - The Phoenix New Times is less than impressed with Arpaio's demand to Selective Service.
"Arpaio's "birther" investigators did some homemade science projects in which they claim they were able to make their own phony stamp that looked just like the one used on the president's registration.
"Sheriff Arpaio is asking Director Romo to respond to him within 30 days on whether or not his national office will provide the Sheriff with the original document and if his office will move forward with an investigation of its own," the sheriff's office says. "Lawrence Romo, who was appointed as Director to the U.S. Selective Service System in 2009 by President Obama, reports directly to the President."
That would appear to be a complete conflict of interest -- as if that actually matters."
