In today's dispatches, a white nationalist uses some familiar-sounding names while expressing his desire to assassinate President Obama. Arizona Ken Barnett tries to get the stink of birther off of himself, but between being shown as a liar by the State of Hawaii AND some rather interesting emails, it's starting to be quite clear that he's been been getting booty calls from birthers for a while now.
"Blame the Victim" seems to be the fun new party game, with Rush Limbaugh, Breitbart.com, and Mike Huckabee all playing it. Dr. Orly is threatening elected officials again. Farah's pornstar mustache comes up with a top ten list that, much like the best of birtherstan, has little to do with reality.
Swiftboat liar Jerome Corsi gets even redder in the face while spewing conspiracy nonsense that even Joseph Farah won't buy. Rudy "LoneStar1776" wants people to hear the TRUTH by which he means he's LYING. And if you listen carefully, you can hear the gloves coming off in Mississippi.
10 May - How very charming.
"But it was his talk of violence with other white supremacists and illegal contact with firearms that concerned the FBI the most, testimony and court documents disclose.
In a conversation recorded on Aug. 12, 2010, Kurt referred to President Obama as “Barry Soetoro,” the name used by those in the so-called birther movement who falsely claim the chief executive wasn’t born in the United States and is actually an Indonesian citizen."
"Kurt then refers to discussions “about how to rip off nuclear materials,” assassinating the president, replicating the April 1995 deadly attack on the Murrah Building in Oklahoma City, suicide missions and using an aircraft to turn a city into an inferno.
“Just fucking, I mean, you know, killing the President of the United States ‘cause he is a fucking nigger and how to do it,” Kurt says on the tape excerpts, admitted as a public court document.
Obama has “got no interest in the United States whatsoever other than running us right into the ground,” Kurt says, quickly adding: “He needs to be killed. He needs to be killed.”"
“They’ve got to answer for what they’ve done,” he says on the tapes of informants who have testified against him, “but business first. Take care of business. Got to stop Barry Soetoro from being re-elected. Absolutely.”
Take a good look at your buddies and pals birtherstani. These are the type of people that take your lies and myths and use them to feed their own violent fantasies.
I would say "have you no shame". But in the almost four years I've written about you birthers, I know the answer to that is "no, you have no shame at all."
18 May - Arizona SoS Ken Bennett stamps his little feet and cries "I'm NOT a birther! I'm not I'm not I'm not!!!!"
"Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett just found out the reason why you're putting yourself in a difficult position when you appeal to "birthers" -- people are going to think you're a "birther."
After people caught on to the fact that Bennett told the "birthers" that he was taking the "extra step" to verify President Barack Obama's birth certificate in order for him to appear on Arizona ballots this year, he seems to have received enough questions about it that he's released a public statement declaring his lack of "birther"-ism.
"…I have been on the record since 2009 that I believe the President was born in Hawaii," Bennett says. "I am not a 'birther.'"
And not a few days ago, Bennett was flirting with the birthers, slipping them some tongue, telling them how pretty they looked, slipping his hands down their rears and nibbling on their necks.
And now he's woken up in bed with them. He may have to chew his own arm off to escape.
Hope you used protection Bennett. You're going to have that stink for a while now.
18 May - NBC reports on SoS Ken Bennett's birtherism
18 May - Fox News affiliate KSAZ-TV in Phoenix chimes in on SoS Ken Bennett's birther flirting.
"An Arizona official says President Barack Obama's listing on the state's election ballot is in question until Hawaii officials say they have a birth certificate for Obama.
Secretary of State Ken Bennett says he asked Hawaii for confirmation under a Hawaii law allowing other states to make such inquiries.
The Hawaii Department of Health says officials are reviewing Bennett's request made in March to decide whether to respond.
Bennett's inquiry follows a flurry of questioning about whether Obama is a natural-born U.S. citizen.
"When Sheriff Arpaio's posse said the birth certificate on the president's website might be fraudulent, I started getting over 1200 emails," Bennett said on Phoenix radio station KFYI.
Hawaii officials have publicly stated they have Obama's birth certificate. The White House released a copy last year.
Bennett told KFYI that he may remove Obama's name from Arizona's ballot without confirmation from Hawaii. He says he also could ask all candidates to submit documentation.
Democrats say what Bennett is doing is ridiculous.
"I think it is Secretary Bennett wasting the public's money and time on a question that has already been answered," said Luis Heredia, Arizona Democratic Party.
Secretary of state Bennett is co-chairman of the Mitt Romney campaign in Arizona."
18 May - And some commentary from "Juanita Jean"
"Oh yeah, that right there is the United States of Damn America. One crazy old fart sheriff in a small town in Arizona, who couldn’t find his own butt with both hands and a search warrant, gets himself a case of contagious batcrap crazy (Latin name: Guanotitus), spreads it all over the state, and the Center for Disease Control can’t get enough vaccine or reading material over the mountains to save folks so the result is that Barack Obama can’t be on the ballot in that state. Welcome to Arizona. Please pass the popcorn."
18 May - There seems to be a "blame the victim" epidemic, as Media Matters takes note that Mike Huckabee is claiming that:
"Huckabee: Maybe Obama Said He Was Born In Kenya To "Present Himself As An Internationally-Themed Author"
18 May - Well, I guess we now know WHY Arizona SoS Ken Bennett said he wouldn't ask for Mitt Romney's birth certificate….
"Bennett, who is Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s Arizona campaign co-chairman, asked that Hawaii officials provide “verification” of Obama’s birth in lieu of a certified copy of the president’s birth certificate.
Bennett, a Republican, said he could not recall the name of the constituent who made the request, but the question of Obama’s birth appears to stem from questions about the president’s citizenship. Hawaiian officials have repeatedly confirmed Obama’s birth in their state but some continue to believe he was born in Kenya, his father’s homeland."
18 May - SoS Bennett continues to try and get the stink of birther off of him.
"Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett says he's not a "birther." In fact, he says, he believes President Barack Obama was born in Hawaii.
Yet the state's No.2 elected official has waded into the highly charged controversy, asking the island state to verify the president's birthplace to ensure Obama can appear on Arizona's Nov.6 ballot.
In doing so, Bennett, who is co-chairman for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's Arizona campaign, has reignited the birther debate coast to coast.
Bennett said he is simply trying to verify the information at the request of a constituent. But critics said it amounts to "political pandering."
Maybe because that's exactly what it is??
"Documents obtained through a public-records inquiry show Bennett's office in early March began communicating with individuals asking the office to look into Obama's birth following an investigation by Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio."
Oh what a surprise.
"I was just trying to put this thing to bed and agree to a constituent's request, which I'm allowed to do," Bennett said Friday. "This is a constituent from Arizona, whom I work for. I am the chief elections official, and I am responsible for elections, and I make the list that these people qualify for the ballot."
And the fact that you're Romney's chairman for Arizona has nothing to do with it, right?
"The White House did not respond to requests for comment. The Obama campaign in Arizona, however, released a statement saying the president's name will appear on the ballot.
"Secretary of State Bennett's flirtation with a conspiracy theory that has been debunked time and time again will have no bearing on the election, but it does present an opportunity for Mitt Romney to finally rise to the occasion and denounce the extreme voices in his party," said Mahen Gunaratna, Arizona communications director for Obama for America."
I'm sure Mitt Romney will do exactly that.
18 May - Meanwhile, the brain trust at Breitbart go after another birther myth - the claim he didn't attend Columbia University.
"…because Obama and his campaign have refused to provide other, relevant facts--and because the mainstream media shows such little interest in finding them--conspiracy theories flourish. "
Ah, the "blame the victim" mentality shows up again.
"Some of these are easily debunked by conducting some very basic research."
Something the birthers have been unwilling to do since summer of 2008.
"The image above--never before released--is from public records at Columbia University that prove that Obama did, in fact, graduate in 1983 from the Ivy League school. Contrary to some conspiracy theories, Obama was a student within the Faculty of Arts and Sciences--not the less selective, “nontraditional” Columbia University School of General Studies (which only merged with the Faculty of Arts and Sciences in 1990).
This never-before-seen document debunks a persistent myth that is unfairly unfavorable to the President."
Shock and amazement! They actually showed proof that President Obama was telling the truth!
Cue up James Manning screaming in 3…2….1…..
"Some “fact-checking” websites--such as snopes.com and FactCheck.org--have attempted to debunk the “Obama never graduated Columbia” conspiracy theory before. Yet they have relied almost entirely on secondary sources and mainstream media reports, which fail to cite primary sources. And the Obama campaign has not provided details of his admission to, or graduation from, the prestigious Ivy League school.
Crucially, Obama has refused to release his college transcripts from Columbia and Occidental College, which certainly do exist. "
Don't you just love how they try to turn this into a negative??
19 May - One gets the idea that the State of Hawaii is really freaking fed up with anyone even close to being a birther.
"The attorney general's office in Hawaii is telling Arizona's secretary of state that if he wants confirmation of President Obama's birth records, he'll have to prove he legitimately needs it.
Special Assistant Joshua Wisch said late Friday that Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett hasn't done that despite numerous email and phone exchanges between their offices."
Didn't Ken Bennett say he didn't get any replies from the State of Hawaii??
Gee, wouldn't it be a shame if Hawaiian officials released those emails or they became part of a court record......
"Wisch says Hawaii state laws require Bennett to show legal authority that this office needs the records to update its official lists as part of its ordinary work.
Wisch says as soon as Bennett gives Hawaii adequate authority, the Aloha State will verify Obama's birth."
Somehow I suspect that "pandering to conspiracy minded dolts while being Mitt Romney's state campaign chair" doesn't count as a legitimate need.
19 May - Meanwhile the Obama campaign is telling Arizona "go head and try", according to TPM Livewire.
"Barack Obama’s campaign vowed late Friday that he would be on Arizona’s ballot in November despite threats from the state’s top election official that the president might be blocked over a conspiracy theory about where he was born.
The campaign was responding to comments made by Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett, who said on Thursday he was not convinced that a copy of the president’s birth certificate was sufficiently authentic to prove Obama was born in the United States and therefore eligible for office. Bennett is planning to run for governor in 2014 and is also the co-chair of Republican Mitt Romney’s campaign in Arizona.
In a statement, Mahen Gunaratna, the Arizona spokesperson for Obama’s campaign said this:
From day one, Mitt Romney has pandered to the far-right of his party, and today Arizona Tea Party Republicans are following suit by questioning where the President was born. The President will be on the ballot this November in Arizona alongside Mitt Romney. And Arizonans will have a choice between a President who brought us back from the brink of another Depression so job loss has been reversed to create 4.2 million private sector jobs, manufacturing is resurgent, and GM is the #1 automaker in the world — and a Governor with a familiar and troubling economic scheme: more budget-busting tax cuts for the wealthy; fewer rules for Wall Street — the same formula that benefitted a few, but crashed our economy and punished the middle class."
19 May - The Washington Post comments on the latest two flurries in birtherstan.
"Never mind that Obama was not exactly an unknown at that point. A year before, an obscure publication known as the New York Times had written about his election as head of the Harvard Law Review, and noted, “His late father, Barack Obama, was a finance minister in Kenya and his mother, Ann Dunham, is an American anthropologist now doing fieldwork in Indonesia. Mr. Obama was born in Hawaii.”
What apparently did happen is something that is not exactly unheard-of in the media business: A junior staffer made a mistake. As ABC News reported,
Miriam Goderich edited the text of the bio; she is now a partner at the Dystel & Goderich agency, which lists Obama as one of its current clients. “This was nothing more than a fact checking error by me--an agency assistant at the time,” Goderich wrote in an emailed statement to Yahoo News. “There was never any information given to us by Obama in any of his correspondence or other communications suggesting in any way that he was born in Kenya and not Hawaii. I hope you can communicate to your readers that this was a simple mistake and nothing more.”
Still, a new myth is born.
All of this, by the way, is part of a Breitbart project to “vet” Obama, as many on the right believe that the media failed to look into his early life when he ran for president.
For those who have a similar concern, Washington Post research editor Alice Crites has compiled links to some of the stories our newspaper wrote on that subject."
20 May - By now I suspect you guess what Birther Report has to say about Ken Bennett.
Now that the SOS has thrown down the gauntlet he really needs to dig down deep and stick to his guns.
Otherwise he will look like just another feckless punk, and nobody will respect him or vote for him.
I know I won't.
May 20, 2012 1:06 PM "
It is time we start calling these cowards in congress what they truly are, treasonous cowards. I have made a petition out of my fax letter to Speaker boehner dealing with this matter. Please review and sign if you agree.
IS SPEAKER BOEHNER COMMITTING TREASON, OR JUST MISPRISION OF TREASON ??
I am fed up with these cowards in DC playing willfully ignorant of Sheriff Arpaio’s verification there is probable cause Obama’s eligibility documents are forgeries. We must put as much pressure as possible where the constitutional authority and responsibility resides to end, or at least investigate, and inform the public of the eligibility truth concerning this man called Obama before the election.
As this layman sees it, the Misprision of Treason statute requires a person knowing of a treasonous act to report this information to someone in a position of authority to do something about it and in this case it is the voting public that will determine if this usurper can remain in control of this country and continue his transformation of our Constitutional Republic into a Marxist regime more to his liking.
We, the voting public, are the higher authority in this matter and will make that decision, just as the Senate would make this decision if this were an impeachment proceeding against an eligible president. The Republican leadership in the House, by refusing to investigate this matter, is acting as co-conspirators with the treasonous forgers that forged this usurpers eligibility papers to be Commander in Chief of our Military Forces and they are guilty of Misprision of Treason, if not Treason itself, until they do so. In the totality of this failure, I can think of no act that could be more treasonous.
It is time for we patriots to step forward from behind this internet anonymous shield and let these cowards in DC know we are serious and fed up. I have made my Fax letter to Speaker Boehner dealing with this subject into a petition to see if the public supports the thoughts expressed therein. I filed this as a petition on 5-18 and it was approved for publication and signed by me on the 19th. Please review this petition and lets hold these treasonous Republican cowards feet to the fire. http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/house-speaker-john-boehners-treason-or-just-misprision.html May God continue to bless these United States of America.
May 20, 2012 1:19 PM "
It's not birther report with at lea one unfounded claim of treason.
Obama should provide proof of identity, but he hasn't. Bennett is trying to help Obama and is going the extra mile, asking Hawaii for records.
Hawaii is acting in bad faith and is denying Bennett's request.
Bennett did all he could do, there is simply no way he can allow Obama's name on the ballot. His hands are tied.
Obama has no one to blame but himself. Bennett has already made extra effort on behalf of Obama. What more is he supposed to do?
May 20, 2012 1:36 PM "
Ah, another example of "blame the victim".
20 May - Over at Dr. Orly's (malware and redirect warning)
(bold face mine)
"Very important! forward to your Secretary of State the documents listed below. Demand to remove Obama from the ballot due to fraud and use of forged docs or verify Obama’s IDs or they will be named additional defendants in a racketeering case
Posted on | May 20, 2012"
Ah, once again the "you do what I demand or I'LL SUE!!" tactic.
So what does she want to inflict on the various state Secretaries??
Transcript and affidavit Sheriff Arpaio
affidavit Chito Papa Birth Certificate
Affidavit Chito Papa Obama’s CT SSN
Affidavit Linda Jordan Obama’s SSN
Affidavit of John Sampson 03.08.2010
Affidavit Susan Daniels final
Affidavit of Chris Strunk"
I'm trying to figure out why she thinks a transcript of a hearing where she lost to an empty table, "experts" that a judge said had no credibility, a white nationalist who lied about what he did in Hawaii, and an anti-Catholic dingbat who has been declared a vex lit, will do anything other than convince a Secretary of State that she's a few french fries short of a happy meal.
"Please, forward above documents to your secretary of state and your attorney General, deman immediate investigation of elections fraud…"
She wants her minions to castrate people??
"…and removal of his name from the ballot dur to fraud…."
I think you misspelled that word:
"…and his use of forged identification papers. give them 14 days to respond. If they do not respond, notify them that they will be named as additional defendants in a racketeering case."
Ah, Dr. Orly. How to threaten and demean (deman) people…..
20 May - Add Rush Limbaugh to the "blame the victim" parade.
"It’s accepted that he was born in Hawaii. So the question is, how did this happen? And that’s what a lot of people are trying to figure out. Why in the world would the blurb say he was born in Kenya when he wasn’t? No, Dawn, it’s not because he was. He wasn’t born in Kenya. There has to be a reason for this. You know what I think it is? The same thing Elizabeth Warren’s trying to do. I think this is why we’re not seeing grade transcripts. I think there’s a whole lot of affirmative action going on here with Obama. I don’t think they want us to see the courses that he took. Not so much what his grades were, but I don’t think they want us to see the courses the guy took. They don’t want us to see what he wrote. They don’t want us to see what courses he took. It’s not so much the grades, but this business of saying and telling his literary agent — ’cause this was up for years, it was not just up for a short period of time. It’s just an effort to make himself sound more exotic. And what it really indicates is that the guy will lie. He will exaggerate."
The article ends with:
"So why are they going from implying that the President wasn’t born in the United States to implying that he’s the one that started the whole conspiracy? Because it doesn’t matter. The issue has never been about the President’s eligibility to serve, that has never been truly in question; it’s about painting him as “exotic” (a commonly used word) and as an “other.” As long as a large enough percentage of the population thinks of Obama as someone who simply doesn’t belong, they can create fear among the electorate. If they can scare the voters into believing that the President is an enemy intruder who is occupying the White House, it’ll make the right’s job of stealing from the poor and middle class and giving to the rich that much easier."
20 May - At World Nut Daily, Jospeh Farah and his pornstar mustache gives their idea about "why some don't care" about birtherism.
Not surprisingly, the actual reason (namely "because it's a giant flaming pile of bovine byproducts that have no basis in facts, the law, or reality") isn't one of the ten reasons Farah comes up with.
"1) Some people don’t care about Barack Obama’s constitutional eligibility because they value his presidency higher than they value the Constitution."
Despite what Farah thinks, "Presidenting while black or while a Democrat" isn't a violation of the US Constitution.
"2) Some people don’t care about Barack Obama’s constitutional eligibility because they believe it would be dangerous to the stability of the country to pursue it."
Ah yes, the whole "race war" myth.
"3) Some people don’t care about Barack Obama’s constitutional eligibility because they understand it is dangerous to do so."
At least those addicted to paranoid conspiracy theories that is.
"4) Some people don’t care about Barack Obama’s constitutional eligibility because they simply don’t believe a national fraud of this magnitude could have been pulled off."
And since the birthers have never presented anything even remotely close to credible evidence to support such a claim, we still don't.
"5) Some people don’t care about Barack Obama’s constitutional eligibility because they don’t care about the integrity of the Constitution. Period."
Let's see. Which side is intent on rewriting the Constitution based upon a translation of a book by a Swiss legalist that's ten years younger than the Constitution?? Which side seems to ignore things like the "Full Faith and Credit" clause of the Constitution? Which side routinely cites the Dred Scott decision and ignores or explains away the 14th Amendment?? Which side routinely calls for military and civil coups and armed rebellion?? Which side continues to show an appalling ignorance of the Constitution??
Oh, right, the BIRTHERS are the ones doing all that. So much for "caring about the integrity of the Constitition"……
"6) Some people don’t care about Barack Obama’s constitutional eligibility because pursuing it means damaging your personal reputation due to ridicule by the political and cultural establishment."
If by which you mean "going birther makes one a complete and total laughing stock", then yes….
"7) Some people don’t care about Barack Obama’s constitutional eligibility because they have in mind future candidates of their own who might not qualify if the provision is taken seriously."
Isn't Farah the one who routinely ticks off the de Vattelists by pimping Sen. Rubio??
"8) Some people don’t care about Barack Obama’s constitutional eligibility because they don’t care about politics. Period."
I care about politics. Which is why I'm a debunker.
"9) Some people don’t care about Barack Obama’s constitutional eligibility because they don’t believe “it’s a winning issue.”
What's the current court win/loss record for the birthers??
Ah, 0 wins, 118 loses.
So who has the winning issue??
"10) Some people don’t care about Barack Obama’s constitutional eligibility because they think this particular provision is “an anachronism.”
No, it means that the birtherstani have let to prove any of the allegations as fact.
"It’s this last group I want to discuss today.
Do you think this debate started in 2008?
You’re wrong. It started way back in 2004."
That was about the time that Arnold Schwarzenegger became Governor of California and the GOP was all hot and bothered over the idea of amending the Constitution so that the "Governator" could run for President, right???
"Despite the fact that there are so many different reasons not to care about Barack Obama’s constitutional eligibility – probably more than the 10 I enumerated above – there are two discomfiting facts that cannot be ignored:
1) The “natural born citizen” requirement is still a part of the Constitution."
Yes it is. Despite the de Vattelists attempt to rewrite it to mean something other than it it says.
"2) About half of Americans, according to nearly every poll conducted, question Obama’s eligibility and are troubled by the many unanswered questions – questions that continue to haunt his presidency and the integrity of America’s political system."
By "half of Americans", Farah means "half of the Republicans that Wenzel polled for World Nut Daily, based on misleading questions"
20 May - Swiftboat liar Jerome Corsi comes up with even more crazy theories. Too crazy for World Nut Daily, this is on Alex Jones "Infowars".
"On the May 20 Sunday edition of the Alex Jones Show, Alex covers the global elite on the run as the establishment media is forced to report on the Bilderbergers and their noxious plan to finally unfold a devastating attack on Iran, undermine the internet with government censorship, and sell the public on more trillions in banister bailouts and punitive carbon taxes under the discredited cover of saving the earth. Alex talks about the continued and long overdue outing of Kenyan-born Obama the imposter and the G8 war council in Chicago that has transformed the Windy City into a repressive police state where political activists disappear and patsies are set-up as terrorists to further the manufactured war on terror and its Orwellian control grid."
Basically it's one conspiracy-addled racist nut bag sharing lies to another conspiracy-addle racist nut bag.
20 May - Arizona Family reports on the State of Hawaii and the fact they did respond to SoS Ken Bennett
"The state of Hawaii has responded to Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett’s request for proof that President Barack Obama was in fact born in the Aloha State.
The Hawaii attorney general’s office has reportedly told Bennett that there are steps he needs to take in order to confirm President Obama’s birth records.
Those steps include Bennett proving that he legitimately needs confirmation in order to update the records at his office."
20 May - The Huffington Post also takes note that the State of Hawaii did indeed respond - repeatedly - to Arizona SoS Ken Bennett's requests.
"Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett has reportedly received a response from the state of Hawaii regarding his request for verification that President Obama was born in the United States.
According to KTVK in Phoenix, the Hawaii attorney general's office told Bennett that he must take a number of steps, including proving that the confirmation is necessary to update his office's records, in order to receive the verification"
I think it's getting rather obvious that Bennett was, well, lying about not having heard from Hawaiian officials.
20 May - Oh look. Rudy has a new video. And he's really losing it in this one.
The problem Rudy?? The birthers don't like HEARING the truth no matter now much you yell or scream.
Something you should be familiar with, since all you spew are LIES!!
21 May - Over at birther report…..
"Anonymous said…[Reply] Those dumb Hawaiian jerks have replied to the Arizona Sec. State - asked him to show why he needs proof. If only we followed the Constitution the way these jerks claim to follow Hawaiian law. If only we protected national secrets like drone technology the way Obama's secrets are protected. May 21, 2012 11:20 AM"
Hmmm…..what part of the Constitution is this poster ignoring??
Oh, right, the Full Faith and Credit clause.
"Unknown said…[Reply] Waiting for the "election" means the TREASONOUS ILLEGAL ALIEN still has a YEAR before a new president could take office and "change" anything.
That is TOO LONG for America to wait and risk NATIONAL SECURITY.
We need to reverse the company-ruining union rules and government regulations that are preventing JOB growth NOW !!!
Impeachment is too slow and only applies to a "legal" president --- he should be ARRESTED TODAY.
(Go directly to JAIL - do NOT pass GO - do NOT COLLECT $200 TRILLION dollars.)

Ah, someone else who thinks that "presidenting while black" is illegal.
"Anonymous said…[Reply] Lyndon LaRouche just told Alex Jones (3rd hour on podcast infowars.com) that America is in THE MOST SERIOUS CRISIS IN HISTORY!
THE GOOD NEWS: OBAMA IS GONG TO BE REMOVED VERY SOON. HE WILL NOT MAKE IT TO THE CONVENTION.

PERHAPS CONGRESS HAS NOT RESPONDED TO THE CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION BY ARPAIO OR THEIR CONSTITUENTS BECAUSE THEY PLAN TO REMOVE HIM ON THEIR SCHEDULE…too good to be true?
LISTEN FOR YOURSELVES.
May 21, 2012 11:43 AM"
Ah, Birtherstan. Where one conspiracy-addled racist nut job can say something to another conspiracy-addled racist nut job, and it gets repeated as gospel truth.
21 May - So Arizona SoS Ken Bennett claims he didn't hear anything from the State of Hawaii.
Hmmm…….because TPM Muckraker has just posted the emails between Bennett and Hawaiian State Officials.
(Bold face mine)
"On Monday, TPM filed a public records request for the correspondence between the Hawaii government and the Arizona Secretary of State’s Office. The results show Bennett and his staff grew ever more impatient with the slow pace of Hawaii’s response before the secretary finally took to a local conservative radio talk show on Thursday to voice his concerns.
“Hello Jill. I just left you a brief voice mail message,” Arizona Deputy Secretary of State Jim Drake wrote in an email to a Hawaii attorney on May 1. “I am wondering whether you can give me a ballpark timeframe on our request. As you know, the closer we get to November, the more my phone rings. I believe that having Hawaii’s response on hand might help to quell the inquiries!”
Deputy Attorney General Jill Nagamine’s response? “We need more information to substantiate that you are eligible to receive verification.”
In an interview with the Associated Press late Friday, a spokesman for the Hawaii attorney general said Bennett still has yet to show that he legitimately needs a verification of Hawaii’s birth certificate despite numerous emails back and forth."
So it wasn't so much "didn't hear back from the State of Hawaii", has much as "didn't hear what you wanted from the State of Hawaii".
"Hawaii officials have plenty of reasons to push back. Birtherism is a conspiracy theory fueled by a fringe group of writers and activists unwilling to believe Obama is a natural born citizen and therefore eligible for the presidency no matter how much evidence they get.
The effect is that Hawaii has been overloaded for years with requests for verification of the president’s birth certificate, getting as many as 50 new requests a month. Hawaii officials have passed laws and filed sworn affidavits to deal with the matter. The White House has even gone as far as to release a copy of the president’s long-form birth certificate to the public. Yet requests like Bennett’s still keep coming."
So yeah, wonder why they may be assigning such requests at a lower priority level then, oh, watching paint dry.
"In the interview with the conservative radio host last week in Phoenix, Bennett described himself as “not a birther.” He said he believed the president was born in Hawaii, but he qualified it by adding “or at least I hope he was.” His investigation, he said, wasn’t driven by his personal belief. It began after a flood of emails into his office from birthers in Arizona, asking him to look into the president’s eligibility."
The funny thing is that TPM Muckraker included some emails that Bennett sent birthers. For example, this one to "Tom" (Tom Ballentyne of the Western Center for "Journalism" perhaps??), dated 16 April:
"I have personally met with Representative Seel, Jeff Lichter, and many others on multiple occasions. After considering the various options when we started working on this two or three years ago, I have consistently suggested what I believe is the best action: establishing a special private right of action in state law allowing any Arizona elector to challenge a presidential candidate’s qualification for office under expedited time frames in the courts. Ironically, I think that, after trying several other approaches, that’s what was most recently proposed in the Legislature by Carl."
O RLY??? And notice he said he started working on this with known birthers two or three YEARS ago!
"Additionally, I have asked the State of Hawaii for a “verification in lieu of a certified copy” of the birth record of President Obama, as contemplated under HRS 338-18. This action was prompted, in large part, by constituents here in Arizona who wanted me to do whatever I could to verify the President’s eligibility. If the State of Hawaii does not confirm that he was born in Hawaii, his name will not appear on Arizona ballots."
Sounds like he was making a pretty cut and dried claim here.
And this 27 April one to "‘Brian Reilly’, Tom Ballantyne; Jeff Lichter; Jim Wise; Gabe Zolna; ‘crossroadswithvan’; Wesley W. Harris; Tom Jenney; ‘rodriddle’:
Note the cast of characters. Western Center for "Journalism's" Tom Ballantyne. His cameraman Gabe Zolna. And then there's Brian Reilly, Jim Wise, and Jeff Lichter of the Surprise Tea Party, the ones that have been working closely with Joe Arpaio and Jerome Corsi.
I smell Corsi and Farah......
And it speaks volumes that Bennett was citing legal advice and suggestions from this crowd rather than from, oh, I dunno, the Arizona's Attorney General's office??
"Hawaii is bound by their own statutes to provide such verification to other state officials in their official duties and, to Brian’s point, I do not believe they can avoid their duty to me under a criminal investigation loophole because I am not investigating them."
So again, he's not just responding to a birthers demands here, he's working with and is keeping up correspondence with them.
"With all due respect, the MCSO investigation has not proven anything other than raised probable cause that the birth certificate posted on the Whitehouse website “may be” a forgery. The next lawful step would be for the Sheriff’s office to turn their findings over to the County Attorney for prosecution. Evidence would be brought on both sides and a judge should issue a decision. Whether or not that happens, if Hawaii can’t or won’t provide verification of the President’s birth certificate, I will not put his name on the ballot. "
Once again he's stating that, unless Hawaii gives in to HIS demands, he WILL keep President Obama's name off the ballot.
"I can tell from the tone and language of your letters that the only acceptable outcome for you is that his name not be on the ballot, period. That may be what happens…."
So now we know that yes, yes indeed, Arizona SoS Ken Barnnett, Arizona Chairperson for the Mitt Romney campaign, was not only lying about not getting anything from Hawaii, but indeed was and has been pandering to the birtherstani in his state.
He wasn't only nibbling on the birthers necks and calling them pretty, he was actively dry-humping them on the dance floor, groping them under their shirt, and giving them hand-jobs before breaking out the astroglide and going off someplace private for some intimate moments.
21 May - Looks like some of the birtherstani at Birther Report are having their doubts about Corsi.
What is Corsi covering up now?
We have his Kenyan Birth Certificate. We know that he is an Indonesian named Barry Soetoro.
Frank Marshall Davis is nothing more then the child molesting "uncle".
May 21, 2012 2:34 PM "
If this was a real investigation, Corsi would not be allowed with a mile of it let have access to information before it is released to the public. Get a clue people.
May 21, 2012 3:45 PM "
Of course, some of the inmate there come up with stuff that's even more bat guano crazy than Corsi.
Obama is the son of Sukarno's daughter and Malcolm X. She is pictured on Obama's book which in Indonesian is translated to
"Jihad from Jarkarta to the White House"
Obama is half Indonesian, born either in Kenya or Indonesia, he even has the Indonesian PURPLE LIPS
May 21, 2012 4:08 PM "
“I was born in Kenya”, sounds a little better than, “I was born in a whore house where my mother was working at the time of my birth”. My guess is that he was born in Hawaii but that it was not in a hospital. Was he born in a whore house or the back seat of a police car? Hawaiian officials have minced words about his alleged original birth “document” on file in their birth records but they have never testified in court that the photoshopped document posted on the White House website is the same document that is in their files. The whore Dunham’s sham marriage to a Kenyan Communist named Obama was because the “typical white woman” grandmother was embarrassed that her white trash daughter was having a black bastard due to the daughter’s working in a black whore house. Using the money that she had earned as a prostitute in Hawaii, Barry's mother returned to the State of Washington to be with her trashy high school friends. After Barry’s mother returned to Hawaii, she had a real marriage and her real husband adopted Barry in Indonesia and the State of Hawaii updated the police report record of his birth with a birth certificate showing Barry as the son of an Indonesian and Dunham. Because of the availability of Muslim money and Muslim influence being available for Barry entering elite schools and colleges in America, Barry has never applied to reclaim American citizenship. The draft card and other “American” documents were easily obtained through Weather Underground connections.

And some true believers:
Corsi and Sheriff Joe have information that will absolutely amaze everyone. That's all I can say for now. The Obots will blow it off but it will take more votes away from Obama.

"……any day now……..any day now……..any…….day…….now…….."
21 May - In the Mississippi Birther Ballot Jihad, counsel for the Mississippi Democratic Party does a response in opposition to Dr. Orly's demand for sanctions.
(Scribd link here)
"1. In her latest motion (which the Court has ordered be sealed due to her violation of Fed. R. Civ. Proc. 5.2), Taitz seeks sanctions against MDEC Counsel based on her claim that counsel asked the Court to take judicial notice of President Obama’s Long Form Birth Certificate (“LFBC”), which was included as an exhibit to the MDEC’s Motion for Judgment on the Pleadings (“MDEC Motion”) [Docket No. 15] See Motion for Sanctions at 3.(1) Taitz asserts this is sanctionable based on her notion that the LFBC is a forgery."
Note the footnote:
"1 Taitz had already included a copy of the LFBC – albeit one that was difficult to read - as an exhibit to an exhibit to her First Amended Complaint. See, e.g., Docket No. 1-1 at 69. To the extent Taitz is somehow claiming that she can attach the LFBC as exhibits to her pleadings but other parties are precluded from doing so, her argument is beyond specious and should be soundly rejected."
"Taitz improperly mischaracterizes the Arpaio Press Conference Materials as “testimony.” Statements allegedly made by an out-of-state county sheriff, his “volunteer posse,” and/or the prominent birther advocate who actively participated the press conference do not constitute testimony, even if the press conference has been transcribed by someone (as here, by someone of unidentified qualifications). Nor do such statements have any discernible relevance to the issues presented in this case given that the bulk them consisted of rehashing months’ old – and thoroughly debunked – claims made by self-avowed birther advocates. Further, given that the sheriff’s failure to file any charges or otherwise initiate any sort of actual legal proceedings whatsoever calls into serious question the veracity of the claims he allowed to be publicized from his podium. Therefore, Taitz’s apparent belief that MDEC Counsel were required to accept such information as accurate or as binding upon them in any way is preposterous. Notably, Taitz failed to cite a single case or other legal authority to support her apparent contention otherwise."
"3 While not referenced in her Motion for Sanctions, Taitz filed with her motion an “Orly Taitz for U.S. Senate presents” DVD, seeking donations to her current political campaign for the U.S. Senate in the State of California. See Docket No. 26. Given that (a) the transcript of the hearing reflected in the DVD is already included in the record (see Docket No. 1-1 at 112-157), and (b) the DVD was privately produced rather than any official recording of the proceedings, it is reasonable to conclude that Taitz filed the DVD – like the Motion for Sanctions – for the improper purpose of fundraising and/or increasing publicity for her political campaign."
Dr. Orly must be chewing on the straps right now.
"8. Third, Taitz’s claim that MDEC Counsel were required to accept the validity of claims made in the affidavits of her purported experts in birth records, forged documents and/or document manipulation is absurd. Mr. Papa’s self-avowed expertise is based on his experience as a web developer who has “often” used software such as Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator.” See Papa Affidavit ¶¶ 1-2 [Docket No. 1-1 at 68]. Mr. Vogt’s self-professed expertise is based on his prior ownership of a typesetting company and current ownership of company that sells document scanning equipment and software. See Vogt Affidavit at 1 [Docket No. 1-1 at 71]. More significantly, Taitz’s lack of candor with the Court is appalling. Taitz recently presented these exact affidavits in another one of her legal actions and following a hearing on the merits – in which Taitz presented the affidavits without opposition and elicited direct testimony from Messrs Papa and Vogt regarding their findings with neither objections nor cross-examination – the administrative law court (appropriately) found their testimony to be worthless to Taitz’s claims:"
YES! They brought up her loss to an empty table!!
"9. Given that the information even potentially relevant to the LFBC upon which Taitz’s Motion for Sanctions relies has already been presented and flatly rejected as worthless in a virtually identical legal proceeding – a material fact that Taitz most assuredly knew as she was both counsel and purported witness in that proceeding yet withheld that fact from this Court – Taitz’s claim that MDEC Counsel were required to accept such information as true, or were in any way bound to act on such information is ludicrous. Again, Taitz has not cited any legal authority to support her charges of any improper actions allegedly undertaken by MDEC counsel; her sole basis for seeking motions is her assertion that “evidence” she submitted elsewhere proved anything other than the frivolity of her birther claims. As such, Taitz’s Motion for Sanctions based upon such wholly unsupported argument should be DENIED."
Can we has sanctions now PLEASE???
"11. MDEC Counsel is indeed “well aware” of Taitz’s litigious history. However, counsel is at a loss as to how, exactly, knowledge of such history is relevant to her Motion for Sanctions. If anything, such knowledge demonstrates the utter frivolity of her claims, her increasingly vexatious litigation practice, and her persistent pattern of seeking to mislead the courts before whom she appears, either as counsel, litigant, or both, sometimes with clients and sometimes with “co-plaintiffs.”"
I swear I can hear Dr. Orly screaming from all the way up here in Washington State.
"13. Therefore, while Taitz is apparently of the view that MDEC Counsels’ awareness of her repeated failures in other venues should somehow prevent them from taking certain positions in this case, reality compels the opposite conclusion. The reasonableness of MDEC Counsels’ position becomes manifest upon review of the wholesale, consistent rejection of her claims in other courts around the country. As such, Taitz’s Motion for Sanctions based upon such a frivolous argument should be DENIED"
So how long before Dr. Orly doubles down on the crazy here?
