In today's dispatches, the rhetoric from the birthers continues to get ugly and threatening. Especially since it's starting to dawn on them that the Jerome Corsi Arizona Muppet Show isn't going anywhere.
Meanwhile, the birthers continue to try and recycle old and discarded ideas in hopes that they'll work this time. Charles Kerchner is acting the de Vattelist high priest towards Rick Santorum (google it). The Georgia primary comes and goes, Obama was indeed on the ballot, but that's not stopping Van Irion, whom seems to be following the Taitz guide to legal etiquette.
More birthers have lovely sit-down chats with the Secret Service. Dr. Orly comes up with a brand-new money making idea - selling videos of Dr. Orly in hot, steamy courtroom action. World Nut Daily and others are still upset the Corsi-sponsored dog and pony show didn't pan out. Ken Allen loses again, with the court shooting down one of the birthers favorite legal fictions.
Van Irion, Joseph Farah, and Carl Swensson all want their hands milking that $weet $weet Birther$tani ca$h cow. The National Review wants people to ignore their birther antics in the past and focus now on the damage the birthers are causing conservatives. Bed, made, lie. Arpaio's credibility may be circling the drain as a result of letting himself be Corsi's muppet.
Arizona tries to run two new shiny 2012 birther bills. The facts seem to be interfering with Corsi's narrative. One gets an idea that people in Mississippi are a tad annoyed with Dr. Orly. Dean Haskins Hawaiian case with Duncan Sunahara gets the traditional birther reply from the courts, while Dr. Orly tries to ride Haskins coattails. Some evidence that the "Cold Case Posse" may have not bee the most unbiased of "investigators". And the whole "Sovereign Citizen" movement gets scarier
1 March - Rudy, aka "LoneStar1776" is chomping at the bit in the wake of Arpaio's spewing of recycled Corsi droppings.
In a nutshell, Rudy absolutely, completely, totally wants to be Obama's executioner.
And in comments:
"Well what its going to take is for someone to have the balls to walk into washington and clean house. Until then,, it doesn't matter what evidence you have. I dont know whose reponsiblity it is to do the arrests in washington, but they are obviously sucking the same dick as our congress. Cause none of those criminals are being arrested for anything even though there is tons of evidence. So far all the evidence collected is in vain.

And the hate marches on. I'm sure that Corsi and his crowd are just thrilled that their fake report has people practically wetting themselves over the idea of killing the President of the United States.
3 March - It looks like Obama isn't the only person on Rudy's birther fantasy execution list.
Around 4:10, Rudy completely and totally loses it. Including screaming at 4:45 about how much he wants to kill anyone he thinks was "responsible" for Obama.
I'm also going to assume, based on comments around the 5 minute mark, that Rudy's family doesn't want much to do with him.

And today's visit from the Secret Service goes to...
6 March - Everything old is dumb again (malware and redirect warning)
Why not produce a mock trial of Obama on the internet and invite grand juries around the country to watch it, especially jury leaders. With 3,500 counties there should be some willing to investigate the Son of a Brit.
Let’s have an internet trial"
What a great idea!! Maybe you could call it something like the "Trial of the Century" or "American Grand Jury" or something equally as eye-catching…….
6 March - Charles Kerchner is still targeting Rick Santorum to prove that his father was a US citizen at the time Papa Santorum got Mama Santorum in a family way.
"Many, many contacts over several months by many people to Rick Santorum’s campaign offices by telephone, letters, and email … and even to his home address in VA via registered postal mail with questions about how, where, and when his father Aldo Santorum [who was born in Italy to non-U.S. Citizen parents] became a US. Citizen, have gone unanswered."
Gee, I wonder why? Is it that Rick Santorum (google it) may be a wee bit too busy to chat with deranged birthers??
"Rick Santorum says he is the “true conservative” and that he strongly supports the U.S. Constitution. Well, if that is true, he cannot just ignore Article II Section 1, the presidential eligibility clause, i.e., the “natural born Citizen” requirement to be the President and Commander in Chief."
He's not ignoring it. He's just not paying attention to your attempt to redefine it.
And in comments:
"AR925 said…[Reply] Well we can't let ANY of them off the hook about this issue! If we get another ineligible in office, then we're DONE on the Obozo issue and our Constitution is down the drain. So YES, Rick's mother, it's REQUIRED so cough up the papers. March 7, 2012 8:30 AM"
"If that uppity darkie needs to show us his papers, then you better show us yours as well. Got that dago??"
7 March - Remember how hard Van Irion, Dr. Orly, Carl Swensson, David Farrar, Mark Hatfield, and all the rest of Georgia Birther Ballot jihadists worked to try and keep Obama off the primary ballot in that state??
Remember how the birthers were insisting that this was their moment, that they would succeed??
Remember how Thomas MacLeran INSISTED that no state would have Obama on the ballot.
Funny, looks like Obama was indeed on the ballot in that state…..
And on the Tennessee primary ballot as well.
Funny thing that...
7 March - One of Dr. Orly's cavity creeps gets their Secret Service visit. (malware and redirect warning)
First though, Dr. Orly wants to harass law enforcement before it's "too late".
"We need to go to every sheriff around the country, every FBI and secret agent. As we found one honest sheriff, we would be able to find one honest FBI agent, one honest judge, one honest elections commission, one honest secret service agent, who will get the ball rolling. We have to keep looking. Also, let the secret service know, that usurpation of the US Presidency is an economic crime. Obama incurred nearly the same amount of debt, as 43 presidents before him. Billions and trillions of dollars were misappropriated by the Thief in Chief. We can’t rely on elections, as we know that the elections are utterly rigged by the same thugs, who put the usurper with forged papers in the White House. Unless we remove him before the election, I am afraid, it will be too late."
And then Kelley Watt talks:
"Just wanted to tell you what transpired today with the Secret Service at my home. I had called the FBI yesterday saying I was getting ready to do my income taxes and what should I do because I didn’t want to send my hard earned money in to a con artist (Obama) as he has been exposed. The FBI in Oklahoma City told me to call the Secret Service in Tulsa and they gave me the number. I talked for about a good 30 min to an agent who was really nice and very polite. He said that he would be happy to hear more of what I had to say if I wanted to come to his office and I told him that a few months ago I had gone to the FBI office in Tulsa with my “Obama File” and the agent never showed up and I had to see another agent who may have just been an underling, anyway, he said well we can come to your house if you prefer so I said that would be fine. "
In other words, you just fit their threat profile. Congrats!
"Two agents came to my house only 10 minutes late and they were both very young. Like late 20’s or early 30’s. One was extremely tired and it seemed all he could do to stay awake during my presentation. One agent was really tall like 7′ and the other guy was short and he carried a bag."
Ah, so they drew the short straw.
"I teased them as they entered my home and told them I wouldn’t allow them in my bathroom alone because everyone told me they might plant a “bug” and they laughed and said “maybe the CIA but not us” and I jokingly said “and don’t be planting any viruses to make it look like i died of a heart attack”. They both laughed. "
Yeah, the "oh joy, we're dealing with a fruitcake" laugh.
"…the short guy interrupted me and said I needed to be careful of stuff on the Internet because he had seen a title I had downloaded from the Birther Report and said it could be biased."
GEE YOU THINK?????
" they stayed for about an hour or more and told me there was absolutely nothing they could do about any of this and if they were to take it to their higher up, he would say to them “I’m not willing to lose my job over this.” He said nobody, including the FBI will not do a thing. He went on to say that they agreed something needed to be done but nobody but Eric Holder had the power to do anything (what do they know, they were young). "
Yeah, I just bet they did….. *rolls eyes* Haven't we heard this line of bull before??
"Then they got up to leave because I had been through all my documents and I asked the young guy with the bag what was in his bag and he said “you want to see what is in here?” and I said “yeah, for all I know you have a tape recorder in there and will turn it over to Obama then I might end up like Brieitbart.”
And in comments:
March 7th, 2012 @ 10:11 am
I had a visit from secret service around sept of last year. They got a birther lesson and told me I almost crossed the line. I asked them what the penalty of High Treason should be ? The reason they came was. I said in a AOL chat room. “I want to see obama piglosi and boehner and anyone eles evolved hung by the neck on Gallows built on the WH lawn and left there for the next 200 years so the next asshole knows who they work for.” Never the less they left knowing obama was never a American. Very sad They both seamed like nice boys too.
Sense then .. I have warned the FED govt not to come back to my home that i will call the sheriff and will not come out till the sheriff gets here. I fear for my life everyday as I put my name out there to show I Am real and will not stand down. This is MY COUNTRY not Obamas.
Peace out everyone.
Pray for America"
Somebody is certainly on a law enforcement watch list….
7 March - Van Irion's latest stunt - trying to get an injunction to prevent Georgia from actually certifying the Democratic primary in that state.
"Today Liberty Legal Foundation filed an appeal with the Georgia Supreme Court challenging the absurd ruling that dismissed our case from the Georgia Superior Court. "
By "absurd" he means "they said no."
Besides, how can it be your case? You were denied PHV, remember??
"We also filed an emergency motion for preliminary injunction with the Georgia Supreme Court. Since it’s too late to have Obama’s name removed from the primary ballots, we’re asking the Supreme Court to prohibit the Secretary of State from certifying the results of the Democratic Presidential Primary election. Typically it takes about a week for the Secretary of State to certify an election. The results of an election are not official until he certifies. So, if the Supreme Court grants our motion the results of Obama’s Georgia primary election will be on hold pending the outcome of our lawsuit."
I suspect the answer will be a two letter word, starting with "n" and ending in "o".
"This may be our final test for an uncorrupted portion of the justice system in Georgia."
Well, starting out by calling the courts "corrupt" isn't a great idea.
"As you can see by reading our filings on our website, the Georgia Supreme Court has no excuse for denying our motion."
Except for minor things like "facts", "the law", and "prior legal rulings".
"It hurts no one to grant our motion and it hurts everyone to deny it. So, now we wait to see if the Georgia judicial corruption goes all the way to the top. "
Again, not a good start.
"Please pray with me that instead we will find an honorable Judge that will follow the law."
You already found two of them. They said "no".
Oh, and send money:
"The tactics of Obama’s and the Democratic Party’s attorneys are quickly using up our resources. Please consider making a donation today to help keep us in the fight!"
"Oh noes!! How DARE that uppity darkie and his attorneys actually DEFEND themselves against our insane lawsuit!! Who do they think they are????"
7 March - Dr. Orly is still being throaty (malware and redirect warning)
"MORE EVIDENCE OF FRAUD. OBAMA’S 2008 SHORT FORM BIRTH CERTIFICATE IS A FORGERY AS WELL. THIS MAN BELONGS IN PRISON FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE (AT LEAST)
Posted on | March 7, 2012"
"At least", eh??
"WHITE HOUSE CONFIRMS OBAMA’S BIRTH CERTIFICATE WAS FORGED"
O RLY?? And the evidence Dr. Orly cites??
A 16 Feb 2012 video. Posted by Ron Polland/Polarik.
7 March - And Dr. Orly has a great new idea to part the birtherstani faithful from the birther buck$ $he $ees a$ her rightful due.(malware and redirect warning)
"Obama is flaunting his crimes, rubbing them into our faces by selling mugs and T-shirts with his forged birth certificate for $22.50
Here is my answer to our Thief -in-Chief:
2 professional videos are being prepared:
1. A historic trial in Georgia, where I brought 7 witnesses, including a retired deportation officer, licensed investigator and others testifying that with papers like Obama’s a person should be arrested and deported
2. A historic meeting of the New Hampshire ballot law commission, where for the first time a testimony was presented, showing Obama being a fraud and a criminal usurping US presidency
3. I am waiting for Indiana Secretary of State to post on line the video of Indiana elections commission hearing."
So videos of the last three times Dr. Orly was shot down in flames, including losing to an empty table twice and putting herself on the witness stand!
Wow. The only thing that would make it better would be a silhouette of a man and two robots in the lower right corner providing commentary during the video.
"Videos will be in beautiful commemorative cases and will be autographed by me.
I will charge the same as Obama: $22.50 for the DVD in a commemorative case with my autograph and $2.50 for shipping and handling."
Wow. She really does think highly of herself.
"Please, send a check for $25 to Orly Taitz for US senate, write on notes for video or go on the website RunOrlyRun.com or OrlyTaitzforUSSenate.com and donate on the website. Put in the notes for video and write the address, where the video will be sent. If you want both videos, please, send $50"
So $50 for highly edited videos that are in the public domain. And wasn't the video of the Georgia hearing done by Dean Haskins?? Shouldn't Dr. Orly cough up some money to him for his hard work in taping that whole thing????
"Obama said “Get in their face”
I am saying “Get in his face!”
As opposed to CEL3, who more than likely told her to "get on my face".
7 March - Van Irion isn't the only one going after the birtherstani marks. Carl $wen$$on al$o want$ $ome of that $weet $weet birther buck$
"I am in this fight for America and need help, lots of it, to continue my efforts which include Atty fees and my dedicated time needed to get in front of the destroyers of our Republic. I don't mind suffering the slings and arrows, getting beat up by the thugs who propagate this Crime of the Century or anything else associated with restoring this Nation to a Constitutional Republic so please help me stay in this fight. It's your way of being in it too. Thank you, Carl Swensson"
So get cracking crackers! That PayPal button won't click itself!!!
7 March - World Nut Daily goes from whining that the media didn't take the WND-sponsored Corsi muppet show in Arizona seriously, to claiming a deep dark conspiracy is keeping the media from taking it seriously.
"The lead investigator in Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s review of the authenticity of Barack Obama’s birth certificate today unloaded a bombshell about the case: that he was told by sources members of the media were threatened with federal investigations should they continue to report on the birth certificate issue."
"Sources" in this case being, I suspect, Corsi and Farah.
"Lead investigator Mike Zullo told WND that as he was preparing information to be presented to the public “it was clear that the mainstream media was not going to be in attendance” at the sheriff’s scheduled new conference, where he presented facts suggesting both fraud and forgery in the image of a Hawaiian birth certificate that the White House released last years “proof positive” of Obama’s eligibility for office."
Maybe because those in the reality-based community couldn't believe anyone would take the birther lies seriously??
“During our investigation, we actually were told [that media] had been threatened with FTC investigations. Commentators [had been] threatened with their jobs,” Zullo said.
The threats were so intimidating that some individuals quit their positions over safety concerns for their families, he said."
O RLY?? And the evidence backing this up is???
Plus, it's rather curious you didn't say anything about this at Corsi's muppet show last week. You wouldn't be, oh, I dunno, making things up?
"So the problem became to get the information to the American public in spite of an intentional media blackout, since citizens still must make critical leadership decisions about their government through the election process.
The solution was an ebook with details from the investigation, the evidence that was accumulated, and the issue that remain for Arpaio and his investigators to pursue."
Oh, so you were FORCED to publish AND SELL a 56-page pamphlet that was largely cut and pasted from Corsi's past articles??? Rather than, oh, I dunno, provide a free PDF of the "evidence" for people to study on their own??
Or even better, actually submitting that "evidence" to a legal grand jury or attorney general so they could review it and act upon it if it was valid??
"Zullo has been blasted in recent days for coordinating the book project with longtime political writer Jerome Corsi. Much of the online criticism stems from a single AP article that links Zullo to “well-known political conspiracy writer” Corsi and includes a statement that Corsi “denied using Sheriff Joe Arpaio … as a promotional tool to sell his books and theories.”"
And rightly so.
"It cites Zullo “as the co-author” of the ebook. But it fails to mention the evidence cited by the investigation indicating crimes of fraud and forgery."
Because the "evidence" presented was debunked months ago or longer??
7 March - Ken Allen loses again in Arizona..
(Scribd link here)
"Preliminarily, the Court notes that Plaintiff’s ballot challenge does not fit neatly, if at all, within A.R.S.§ 16-351. Although Arizona courts have addressed challenges dealing with federal offices, see, e.g., Harless v. Lockwood, 85 Ariz. 97, 100, 332 P.2d 887, 888 (1958), the current controversy over the President’s qualification under the United States Constitution to hold the office of the President of the United States is uniquely federal in character and better suited for the federal courts to handle following the upcoming Presidential election. See Markham Robinson v. Bowen, 567 F.Supp.2d 1144, 1147 (N.D.Cal. 2008);see alsoKeyes v. Bowen, 117 Cal.Rptr.3d 207, 216-17 (Cal. Ct. App.), cert. denied , U.S. , 132 S.Ct. 199 (2011)"
And once again, the birther court record is their own worst enemy.
"Most importantly, Arizona courts are bound by United States Supreme Court precedent in construing the United States Constitution, Arizona v. Jay J. Garfield Bldg. Co., 39 Ariz. 45, 54, 3 P.2d 983, 986(1931), and this precedent fully supports that President Obama is a natural born citizen under the Constitution and thus qualified to hold the office of President. See United States v. Wong Kim Ark , 169 U.S. 649, 702-03(1898) (addressing U. S. Const. amend. XIV); Ankeny v. Governor of the State of Indiana, 916 N.E.2d 678,684-88 (Ind. App. 2010) (addressing the precise issue). Contrary to Plaintiff’s assertion, Minor v. Happersett ,88 U.S. 162 (1874), does not hold otherwise"
Oh OUCH!!! They just got one of their biggest binkies stolen.
7 March - Joseph Farah tells the birtherstani people how they can $upport the re$ults of the Cold Case Po$$e.
"Support Arpaio’s continuing investigation as it moves into a new phase with your financial contributions. This is an uphill fight, and Arpaio is already being attacked for diverting local law-enforcement funds to what is perceived as a national political battle. It’s not true, of course. This probe has been funded by voluntary contributions from all over the country."
Well, it was bought and paid for by World Nut Daily. That being said, they they use the resources - and cover - of Arpaio's office for their muppet show.
"Get the newest e-book by Jerome Corsi and Cold Case Posse lead investigator Mike Zullo, “A Question of Eligibility: A Law-Enforcement Investigation into Barack Obama’s Birth Certificate and His Eligibility to be President.”"
Yes, get the chance to pay almost ten dollars for the same stuff Corsi wrote for World Nut Daily last year.
"Hundreds of billboards have been placed all over the country over the last three years, and Farah plans to continue the campaign right through Election Day. If you support this idea, your contributions are desperately needed."
Because we know how well this worked before.
"Am I trying to exploit this issue for financial gain, as some suggest?” asks Farah."
Yes, yes we are.
“No, just look at the prices we are offering for these resources."
Well, back stock, unsold items, and remainders do drag down the balance sheet.
"In fact, as anyone knows who has followed this issue, I have paid a substantial personal and professional price for pursuing it so aggressively. So has my company."
Yeah, funny thing happens when you constantly parade debunked lies and conspiracy theories around and claim it's news. After a while, people think you're crazy.
"Help me get it out to our fellow Americans before it’s too late.”
Shorter article; "$end your Birther Buck$ to u$. $upport u$ and help us $ell our over$tock".
7 March - Yep, Carl Swensson is a mite cranky.
"Comment by Carl Swensson yesterday
I'd start by using that force in one State first."
"Comment by Carl Swensson yesterday
We've got enough evidence to arrest the entire 535 in DC so now we just need to find those who have the gonads to make it happen. If I had 50K people that were as mad as I am this would be over tomorrow."
"Comment by Carl Swensson yesterday
Soon there will be a call to action. This criminal activity cannot be allowed to continue on my/our watch."
I just want to know how he plans to rat himself out this time.
7 March - The conservative National Review suggests it may be time for Republicans to start distancing themselves from Joe Arpaio.
"As Maricopa County sheriff Joe Arpaio be clowns himself and his wayward admirers, it is worth bearing in mind that the manufactured controversy surrounding President Barack Obama’s birth certificate has its origins in anonymous e-mails sent by Hillary Clinton partisans during the 2008 Democratic primary. Which is to say that all these many years later, Republicans are still getting played by the Clintons. Some things never change."
Oh come on National Review. Don't discount your own role in spreading those rumours.
The article ends with:
"Republicans who have chosen to associate with the birthers have done their party and their country a disservice. And as Sheriff Arpaio settles comfortably into that political mental ward, the same must be said of those Republicans who choose to associate themselves with him more broadly. Those who cannot distinguish between the birthers’ flimflam and the critical questions that face our nation in 2012 will not win and do not deserve to."
7 March - The Atlantic reports that Joe Arpaio's trip into birthestan may be costing him what credibility he has.
"This man presided over a police force that violated the Constitution, intimidated political opponents by abusing his legal authority, misspent funds, saw an increase in crime, paid out millions in taxpayer dollars when his underlings brutally terrorized inmates… and through it all, he was, as Radley Balko once put it, a right-wing darling, "winning praise and defenses from conservative outlets such as Fox News, National Review Online, the Washington Times, and Newsbusters." It's good that his birtherism is being rejected, but it's important to remember that it doesn't even make the top ten list of his most egregious behavior.
Rather, it marks the moment when Arpaio became a political liability - the American public, left, right, and center, is more inclined to pay attention to birtherism than abuse of power by police or the sexual assault of inmates or sheriffs departments where Mexicans are denigrated in emails written by deputies. Doubting the place of Obama's birth is loony. It's the other stuff that's outrageous. Until we recalibrate what we regard as most discrediting, we'll continue to be complicit in a government run system where charges of the public are routinely raped and abused.
Maybe if we could get Donald Trump to talk about that…"
8 March - At Dr. Orly's house o' malware, Henry Tisdale comes up with a great idea (malware and redirect warning)
"Since I have received no official confirmation on this latest report re the FBI and Secret Service Agents, I will approach the National Sheriffs Association with a “citizen’s demand” to arrest the entire Obama Administration on the following grounds. "
"Obama’s treason; the crimes he has committed; the crimes to which he is linked but not yet investigated by the FBI or Secret Service (for reasons which are now heavy issues); his lying to all Americans and, last but not least, a minimum of 12 Grand Juries have indicted him; These Grand Juries, each and every one meeting all criteria necessary to go on record as legal, legitimate and official to conduct questioning and arriving at a verdict, are located in several states."
So you want them to arrest the President based on unsubstantiated claims of "treason", accessions of crimes by a batch of conspiracy nuts, a complaint that real law enforcement hasn't taken those claims seriously, and the results of the fake "grand juries" that the Fantasy Tiddlywinks League did and no real court took seriously??
Let me know how that works out for you, skippy.
"The most recent “anti-American” crime Obama committed was his ignoring a Court order to appear in an Administered Hearing Court in Atlanta, GA with several subpoenaed documents. "
You mean the invalid subpoena?? The one exactly like the one Joe Arpaio ignored as well??
8 March - So Arizona got to see not one, but two attempts at a brand new shiny 2012 Birther Bill.
The first was HB 2718. Repeat offenders State Sen. Judy Burges and State Rep Carl Seel (Seel was at the Corsi/Arpaio muppet show) were among the sponsors.
(New sections in bold)
" 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."
And if someone doesn't like what's presented??
"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."
Translation - "Show us your papers, BOY. We'll decide if they're good enough….heh heh….."
HB 2718, as of this writing, shows no activity.
The other one is SB1481.
(PDF here) Again, State Sen. Judy Burges and State Rep Carl Seel are among the sponsors.
"2. An affidavit including facts sufficient to show that the candidate resides in this state and will be qualified at the time of the election to hold the office of presidential elector AND SHALL INCLUDE AN OATH THAT THE CANDIDATE, IF ELECTED AS A PRESIDENTIAL ELECTOR, WILL CAST THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTOR'S BALLOT ONLY FOR A CANDIDATE WHO IS A NATURAL BORN CITIZEN OF THE UNITED STATES AND WHO WILL BE AT LEAST THIRTY-FIVE YEARS OF AGE ON THE DATE OF INAUGURATION."
As defined by???
SB1481 also shows no activity as of this writing.
8 March - I'm getting the feeling that World Nut Daily has realized how little traction the Corsi Muppet show actually has. Because they're now trying to throw anything they can out there.
"Now Arpaio’s team, which was assembled to work on a volunteer basis after hundreds of constituents expressed fear that Obama was having his name put on the 2012 election ballot in Arizona using a fraudulent document, has reported that it checked to determine whether a young mother arrived in the United States from Kenya in the days after Obama’s reported Aug. 4, 1961, birth date.
The investigation report said that the records of the Immigration and Naturalization Service cards, which were filled out by passengers of that era arriving on international flights originating outside of the United States, cannot be found.
The investigation sought the records from part of the month of August 1961, and took a researcher to the National Archives in Washington, D.C., where other records of that time and from that time frame are stored.
It is the records from the week of Obama’s birth that cannot be tracked, investigators confirm."
By "Arpaio's team", they mean "Jerome Corsi".
"The Arpaio report said the hunt for airline passenger flight manifests for 1961 for foreign flights landing in Honolulu was an attempt to see if Obama’s mother returned at that time.
“The idea was that if Barack Obama had been born in Kenya, or any other location outside the United States, there should be a passenger record of the airline flight on which she, a new mother, returned to Hawaii with her newly born infant son,” the report said.
But “to date, investigators have not been able to locate the relevant airline passenger flight manifests for 1961.”
I see one big problem.
Any flight at the time from Kenya would have more than likely been a BOAC flight from Kenya to London (with several stops along the way), with a London to New York flight to connect back to the United States.
Which means that anyone coming from Kenya to Honolulu wouldn't have reentered the United States in Honolulu.
Case in point. The last time I flew internationally, my flight landed in Minneapolis. I then boarded a connecting flight to San Diego. Checking records at that point of foreign flights landing in San Diego would have shown nothing, because I was on a domestic flight, not a foreign one.
There's another slight problem. According to this page at the National Archives, they have New York arrival records up to 1957.
I wouldn't say Corsi was lying, but I can't think of any other words to describe it.
"Microfilm records of INS cards for passengers arriving in Honolulu on foreign files originating around the Pacific rim in 1961 have been examined at the National Archives in Washington, D.C.”
Kenya isn't part of the Pacific Rim.
"WND reported earlier that internal Kenyan government documents reveal Obama’s step-grandmother was interviewed by agents of the National Security Intelligence Service about reports she said Obama was born in the East African nation."
And Corsi never provided any proof to back these claims up.
"Philip J. Berg, a former Pennsylvania deputy attorney general, included a transcript of the taped Oct. 16, 2008, telephone interview and sworn affidavits in a filing with the U.S. Supreme Court after lower courts dismissed as frivolous his Aug. 21, 2008, complaint alleging Obama was born in Mombasa.
Critics challenge statements on the telephone call, which was conducted through an interpreter. But two members of the Obamas’ Luo tribe who are fluent in the local Luo dialect, Swahili and English, have told WND that after carefully listening to the tape they believe she declared Barack Obama Jr. was born in Kenya and that she was present at the birth."
Except the full tape states exactly the opposite.
Wow, they're recycling Berg and McRae here.
"An “interim report” by the NSIS issued in September 2008 “concludes that a birth certificate in the name of Barack Hussein Obama may have been issued” in Kenya “but to confirm this would require a further thorough joint investigation” by the NSIS and Kenya’s Central Intelligence Department, or CID."
Interesting PDF at the link. That provides absolutely no proof of origin, and doesn't even say what the World Nut Daily article CLAIMS it does!!!
Wow. They're trying to throw anything they can against the wall and pray it sticks.
8 March - One gets the feeling that people are getting just a wee bit tired with Dr. Orly. As the Mississippi Democratic Party files a motion to dismiss her Birther Ballot Jihad in that state.
(Scribd link here)
"Prayer For Relief
WHERFORE, PREMISES CONSIDERED, the Defendant prays that this Court will enter an Order and Judgment dismissing the Plaintiffs Petition with prejudice and shall likewise assess the Plaintiff with all costs and reasonable attorney's fees for bringing this frivolous action."
I can already hear Dr. Orly screeching.
8 March - Nellie Ristvedt aka "Butterdezillion" joins the birthers hinting at (or downright calling for) "second amendment solutions"
"Obama may have made one critical error. He wasn’t able to get rid of our right to bear arms. They can only flip the bird at us so many times and over so many critical issues before our backs are against the wall and we will fight with all that’s left.
They really don’t want us to reach that point, and they need to realize that’s where we are swiftly headed unless they get real with us.
8 March - Dean Haskins announces that the case he sponsored in Hawaii, Sunahara v Fuddy, has been dismissed.
"The Judge treated this as a motion for summary judgment because the Judge considered matters outside the pleadings. However, the Judge did not give any reason or explanation for the ruling but just granted it in favor of the State.
We had a long discussion about HRS 338-13(a), and the Judge may have ruled that the statute provides for various forms of either a certified copy of a certificate, or contents, or any part thereof. The Court may have decided that the Director has the sole discretion as to the form of certificate it provides, but again there was no explanation given."
He does, however, have someone to blame.
"We will be discussing these results with him to determine what he believes Duncan's next step should be. Personally, I believe that this could be the result of the immense poisoning of vexatious and incompetent litigation that has plagued the Hawaiian court system, as this case should have been very easily won--if nothing but the law were considered. What other motivation could a state have for denying someone a photocopy of his deceased sister's original birth certificate?"
Trying to claim that Dr. Orly poisoned the well for everyone else??
And, of course, he's still seeing some deep dark conspiracy
"Of course, it couldn't have anything to do with a different number appearing on Virginia's original birth certificate. No, that would be just be ridiculous birther talk. Developing . . ."
No, it just might have something do with the Hawaiian State Law regarding such records.
Is that dead horse sufficiently tenderized now???
9 March - Dr. Orly seem to think the dismissal of the Dean Haskins-sponsored Sunahara v Fuddy case was proof of a conspiracy against her. (malware and redirect warning)
"a local HI attorney argued yesterday against the state’s motion to dismiss a complaint to obtain the long form birth certificate for Virginia Sunahara, a girl that passed away a day after being born, we suspect that Obama’s number came from her BC.
I noticed that there were the same actors in my hearings to get Obama’s BC and in this hearing; same judge Rhonda Nishimura and the same Deputy attorney General Jill Nagamine, who just happens to be married to an attorney for Obama’s family.
I did not hear any news, so my guess, that the case was dismissed, as all the other cases, but I wanted to verify this. "
Couldn't bring yourself to go to Haskins site and confirm it, eh???
9 March - Thanks to Loren Collins for this tip.
Seems that the Cold Case Posse has a Facebook Page.
The first post are pictures that were posted on 3 October 2011.
Followed by another 3 October 2011 post which is a cut and paste from a World Nut Daily article written by Jerome Corsi.
And a 14 January 2012 repost of a Jerome Corsi WND article
And a 22 January 2011 article about the Georgia Birther Ballot Jihad
And a 26 January 2012 post by Manning juror Linda Bentley asking for donations
And another 26 January 2012 article about the Georgia Birther Ballot Jihad hearing
And a 16 February 2012 article from World Nut Daily.
I think it's pretty safe to say the fix was in from day one of the Cold Case posse's "investigation". Not to mention the fact that it makes the Sheriff's office look very biased and partisan.
So much for any trace of the idea that this was somehow an independent, factual "investigation".
9 March - Rather scary article at "The Raw Story".
"Fears that the nation’s first black president will be re-elected has fueled the dramatic growth extremists groups in the U.S. over the past year, according to a report from a civil rights organization that tracks these groups.
The number of groups in the anti-government “Patriot” movement have sky rocketed 755 percent since President Barack Obama has been elected, the Southern Poverty Law Center’s (SPLC) yearly report found.
“These groups are becoming more and more aware as they watch the primary season unfold that Obama is fairly likely to win and some of them are having meltdowns over this,” Southern Poverty Law Center senior fellow Mark Potok told Raw Story. “They’re looking at four more years under a very hated black president — hated by them. So, we’re seeing signs of real anger over that. People saying we’re at war already, saying go out and buy AK-47s and hollow-point bullets, get tools to derail trains.”
Words come to mind. Like "Domestic Terrorism".
9 March - The National Review comments on Ken Allen's dismissal in Arizona.
"Judge Richard Gordon, a Republican appointee, has dismissed an Arizona birther’s lawsuit holding that President Obama is ineligible to stand for reelection. The decision speaks to two enduring untruths at the heart of revanchist birtherism: That the issue is no longer the president’s birth certificate, but whether he meets the constitutional definition of “natural born citizen,” and that a 19th century Supreme Court decision suggests he does not.
Plaintiff claims that President Obama cannot stand for reelection because he is not a “natural born citizen” as required by the United States Constitution. U.S. Const. art. II, § 1, cl. 5. According to Plaintiff this is so because President Obama’s father was a resident of Kenya and thus a British citizen. . . . Arizona courts are bound by United States Supreme Court precedent in construing the United States Constitution, Arizona v. Jay J. Garfield Bldg. Co., 39 Ariz. 45, 54, 3 P.2d 983, 986 (1931), and this precedent fully supports that President Obama is a natural born citizen under the Constitution and thus qualified to hold the office of President. See United States v. Wong Kim Ark, 169 U.S. 649, 702-03(1898) (addressing U. S. Const. amend. XIV); Ankeny v. Governor of the State of Indiana, 916 N.E.2d 678,684-88 (Ind. App. 2010) (addressing the precise issue). Contrary to Plaintiff’s assertion, Minor v. Happersett, 88 U.S. 162 (1874), does not hold otherwise.
Naturally, the birthers will come up with another rationale, in much the same way that guys who predict that the world will end on such-and-such a date always come up with a new story."
