Today's dispatches are pretty much mostly Arizona Secretary of State Ken Barrett and his attempted damage control over his lost weekend in the fleshpots of birtherstan. Meanwhile, Maricopa County taxpayers get to bankroll the Maricopa CCCP's latest field trip to Hawaii.
Meanwhile, Indiana seems to be losing patience with Dr. Orly, who is showing signs of paranoia and delusion. Well, more so than usual. Dr. Kate develops a new hobby of spewing long-debunked anti-semitic slurs. Mara Zebest shows more lack of knowledge about Photoshop. Dr. Orly tries to get her birther ballot jihad in Mississippi moved, and the Dr. Kate-recommended Lame Cherry is going straight into red wine, haldol and datura shooter land.
21 May - One just might get the idea that Indiana has lost patience with Dr. Orly as well.

21 May - Not one to be upstaged by mere Secretary of States, or reality for that matter, Joe Arpaio uses a taxpayer-funded deputy to go with Mike Zullo (and imbedded "reporter" Jerome Corsi") to do a "git to Hawaii and force them to show that damn darkie's papers" trip.
"Sheriff Joe Arpaio's volunteer investigation into documents pertaining to President Barack Obama's place of birth and citizenship now includes the services of a taxpayer-funded deputy, according to Arpaio.
The deputy joined Mike Zullo, a volunteer member of Arpaio's cold-case posse, in Hawaii this week in part due to "security issues," according to Arpaio, and because the investigation has progressed.
"It's one deputy, so what? We have security issues, too, that I can't get into," Arpaio said on Friday. "For six months, we were not spending any money. When you're doing investigations, sometimes things change, you put more resources into it."
But wait, Arpaio has insisted before that no taxpayer monies were being used for the Mariposa CCCP?
"Arpaio has in the past touted the investigation's total reliance on donated funds and volunteers, but he said the investigation now requires the use of a sworn deputy. Arpaio said the volunteer posse is in the midst of a criminal investigation but refused to discuss details of the probe or what drove the posse member and deputy to Hawaii."
A "criminal investigation" using long debunked "evidence, and one that hasn't been brought to a district attorney or attorney general.
"The detective assigned to the Obama investigation works in the sheriff's threats unit and continues to work on other cases while assisting with the posse's investigation, according to the Sheriff's Office."
The "threats unit". Okay……
21 May - Paranoid much Dr. Orly? (malware and redirect warning)
"3. orly taitz
May 21st, 2012 @ 7:23 pm
it is easier said than done. Private security guards charge $40 per hour. I get very little in donations and I need to use this money to fly to different court hearings and fly witnesses, so I can’t do anything. Bottom line, if someone decided to take me out, he will succeed"
21 May - Meanwhile, the Hawaiian side of things
"Two men who identified themselves as being from the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office in Phoenix went to the Hawaii Department of Health Monday morning requesting verification of President Barack Obama's birth certificate, said a state spokeswoman.
A Hawaii deputy attorney general gave the men information concerning the legal requirements to obtain such a document; the requirements are posted on the Health Department's website. The two men then left the office, Health Department spokeswoman Janice Okubo said.
The two men showed Maricopa County Sheriff's Office badges and identified themselves as Michael Zullo and Brian Mackiewcz, Okubo said. They are "authorized by the Sheriff of Maricopa County, who is conducting an official investigation," a spokesman for the sheriff's office said in an email."
They do know they don't have any jurisdiction in the State of Hawaii, don't they??
"Zullo is a volunteer, the Republic reported, but Okubo said that Mackiewicz presented a business card showing he is with the Threats Management Unit of the sheriff's office."
The "Threats Management Unit"……
21 May - TPM Muckraker reports on Arpaio sending Zullo and a deputy to Hawaii. And we find out more about the so-called "threats management unit".
"The Star-Advertiser reported that Zullo and Mackiewcz flashed badges on Monday when they showed up at the Hawaii Department of Health. Mackiewcz apparently also handed over a business card showing he is part of the Arizona sheriff’s “Threats Management Unit.”
Before now, the unit was perhaps best known for its role in a criminal investigation into Arpaio’s opponent during the 2004 Republican primary for sheriff. Arpaio’s investigators accused the challenger of sexually assaulting his adoptive mother 30 years earlier when he was in his mid-teens. (The challenger later said it was his mother who assaulted him and ended up suing Arpaio.) It’s unclear whether Mackiewcz was part of the unit at the time.
Arpaio declined to explain to the Arizona Republic why the threats unit was involved in the birth certificate investigation, instead making only a vague reference to “security issues…that I can’t got into.”
Why does this sound more like Arpaio's "praetorian guard" or personal bodyguards than anything else?
So let me get this straight. Arpaio sends Zullo, a "deputy" from his trusted "special" unit, and Jerome Corsi to the Department of Health for the State of Hawaii, to demand….what exactly?
It sounds like they tried to intimidate Hawaiian officials.
21 May - The brain damage trust at Birther Report seems to have problems with concepts like "jurisdiction"
"Anonymous said…[Reply] Hawaii interfering with an official investigation May 22, 2012 10:46 AM"
Did Zullo and the "threats unit deputy" try and get assistance from Hawaiian law enforcement first??
Who ever said Stanley Ann Dunham was O's mother?
We don't even know how old he is.
The genetic phenotype of Ofraud with the unique PURPLE LIPS is definitely part Indonesian. Sukarno was linked to Ofraud's adoptive daddy Lolo Soetoro, and he hated America.
It's the purple lips, stupid, only Indonesians have them.
Want to see Obama's genetic roots?

Yeah, let's see them try to arrest someone that's outside their own STATE, much less county.
22 May - Salon covers Zullo, Corsi, and Deputy Dawg's trip to Hawaii.
"Joe Arpaio, sheriff of Maricopa County and living embodiment of everything vile and rotten in contemporary American society, has been hard at work investigating whether the president of the United States is an American citizen, which the president is, case closed. Or rather, case closed for people who don’t make a living stoking racist paranoia. For Arpaio, the more evidence we have that Barack Obama’s biography is precisely what he’s always said it is, the stronger the likelihood that this conspiracy goes all the way to the top. So now he’s got his agents traipsing around Hawaii, trying to stir up trouble."
"Zullo is the guy who, along with crackpot author Jerome Corsi, “proved” at a recent Arpaio press conference that the president’s long-form birth certificate is a forgery, because of pixels. TPM also notes that the Maricopa County sheriff’s office’s “Threats Management Unit” was previously best known for smearing and intimidating one of Arpaio’s electoral challengers."
Sounds like Arpaio's personal dirty tricks and intimidation squad.
22 May - Ah, Lyndon LaRouche…..
"Meanwhile, in the United States the clamor for reinstating a Glass-Steagall protection of commercial banking against the investment banks' speculative operations is growing into a tsunami that could surge through Wall Street, crushing everything in its path, including the Obama administration. The American people are ready for a BIG change, on the scale of NAWAPA XXI, which will necessitate not only a return to the Glass-Steagall banking standard, but also a return to the national banking system that Alexander Hamilton intended, which is the only way for 6 million people to be put back to work NOW! This is what the British Empire fears so much, that they would launch thermonuclear war to prevent it. Every American patriot should join with us now to force Obama’s constitutional removal from office BEFORE the November elections. This is the only way to secure a change in policy in time to avert catastrophe."
22 May - Raw Story also reports on the State of Hawaii confirming President Obama's birth…..again.
"Hawaiian officials have apparently had enough of your requests for President Barack Obama’s birth certificate and they’re not afraid to tell you where to get off, even if you are Arizona’s Secretary of State Ken Bennett or a special delegation sent by Maricopa County’s controversial “Sheriff Joe.”
Talking Points Memo obtained emails yesterday detailing the occasionally testy exchanges between Bennett and Jill T. Nagamine, Hawaii’s Deputy Secretary of State. Bennett, who is a co-chair of former Massachusetts governor and presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney’s Arizona campaign, announced last Thursday that “it’s possible” President Obama may not appear on the Arizona ballot in November. TPM filed a public records request on Monday to obtain the correspondence between Bennett’s office and Hawaiian officials, and the results are hugely entertaining.
It appears that the State of Hawaii’s first response to Bennett’s request of President Obama’s birth certificate was to quickly dash out a letter on March 17 with a series of hyperlinks, including one to the Hawaii Department of Health’s website and three links to Hawaii’s Revised Statutes concerning the confidentiality of vital records.
The state of Hawaii has gone to great lengths to handle the years of backlogged requests by so-called “birthers” looking for the president’s birth certificate. In spite of the White House’s decision last year to release the president’s long-form birth certificate, the Hawaii Department of Health is still receiving an average of 50 new requests each month."
22 May -TPM Muckraker reports on Ken Bennett trying to get the stink of birther off of himself.
"After days of ridicule for launching a conspiracy theory-fueled investigation into Barack Obama’s birth certificate, Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett on Tuesday backed off his threat to keep the president off the ballot in November and apologized to his state.
“If I embarrassed the state, I apologize, but that certainly wasn’t my intent,” Bennett said in an interview with Phoenix radio station KTAR. “He’ll be on the ballot as long as he fills out the same paperwork and does the same things that everybody else has.”
How about apologizing to the State of Hawaii?? And maybe, while you're at it, you can also apologize to the President of the United States.
"Bennett said he still intends to keep asking Hawaii for verification that Obama’s birth certificate is authentic. But he said he only plans to use Hawaii’s answer as a way to satisfy demands from constituents who remain unconvinced Obama is a natural born citizen of the United States and so therefore eligible to be president."
Here's a hint. They won't be satisfied has long as President Obama is drawing breath.
22 May - And Dr. Orly's response to Indiana?? IT'S SUBPOENA TIME!!!!

22 May - The State of Hawaii tells Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett "Now that you finally figured out how to properly request this information and prove you have a right to do so, here you are"
"Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett said Tuesday night that he has received information from Hawaii that proves President Obama's American birth and satisfies Arizona's requirements for having the president on the upcoming election ballot.
A Hawaii official sent Bennett's office verification of birth for President Obama on Tuesday, according to both Bennett and Hawaii officials.
Bennett said the issue is now resolved from his point of view. He has cancelled a planned Wednesday news conference where he was expected to discuss the issue.
"I'm happy that we got what we asked for and that's what I was expecting all along," Bennett said Tuesday night."
Cue the birthers screaming "they got to him!!" in 3….2….1…..

22 May - Oh look! Dr. Kate has become a full-fledged anti-semite!!
"The Jews of the synagogue of Satan are descendants from the Khazars. Today’s descendants of the Khazars are the Ashkenaz Jews, although there is much debate underway. In fact though, the Askenazim include the Rothschilds (translated ‘Red Shield), Rockefellers, and many other monied JKhazar Jews, who together form a cabal acting like a synagogue of Satan that is in full gear enforcing its agenda on America, including Agenda 21. They are the Zionists."
She actually links to AND cities "The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion" to boot.
"Wikipedia describes the Protocols as an ‘anti-semitic hoax’ designed to disparage Jews and roundly dismisses any discussion of them. However, when I look at the Protocols, I see the 20th Century completely described in terms of the squandered wealth, war, depressions, terrorism, the state of American culture, interracial strife, immigration…The names of the people involved go right back to Rothschild, Rockefeller, Ford, Carnegie, Morgan, Warburg…that we have been studying here almost separately. I submit these people are Satan’s chosen, and what they are backing we must resist at every level. They are the synagogue of Satan."
And she's even recruiting!

Great post, Kate. thank you. IL tell lots of people about Bilderbergers and the other “secret” groups. Nobody has heard of them and don’t commit to looking them up when I ask them to.

Quite the tantrum.
23 May - Swiftboat liar Jerome Corsi gives Joe Arpaio's side of things. (By which I mean Corsi told Arpaio what to say)
"Sheriff Joe Arpaio says the decision by Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett to place Barack Obama’s name on the state’s presidential ballot won’t put an end to the investigation by his Cold Case posse team, which now has its lead detective on the ground in Honolulu."
No, of course not. Not while World Nut Daily and Joseph Farah are bankrolling it.
"After more than eight weeks of pressing Hawaii’s Department of Health, Bennett said last night that he finally received information that proves Obama’s American birth and satisfies Arizona’s requirements for having the president on the ballot, reported azcentral.com"
You mean eight weeks of Bennett failing to provide Hawaii with confirmation he had a legal right to that information??
"The reported verification from Hawaii came only after Bennett, a Republican who has aspirations to run for governor, closely tailored his request to conform to the demands of Hawaii’s attorney general."
Yes, it's called "following the rule of law". A principal most birthers seem to have problems understanding.
"Dismissing the likelihood Bennett’s move will end the birth certificate controversy, Mike Zullo, the lead investigator for Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse, told WND his team will remain in Hawaii until their investigations are completed."
Wonder how much their Mai Tai and lap dance bill is running up to.
"Zullo said the possibility remained that Arpaio’s law enforcement investigation will conclude Obama’s birth certificate and Selective Service registration form are fraudulent – a result that would pit the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office against the Arizona state government."
Translation - "To hell with what the state decides, we're going to peruse this jihad no matter what".
“In my meetings with Mr. Bennett on behalf of Sheriff Arpaio, he was uninterested in reviewing the evidence the Cold Case Posse has accumulated,” Zullo said, characterizing Bennett’s late-night announcement as a “desperate rush to judgment” after weeks of negotiation to get Hawaii to provide the assurances he required."
Funny, Bennett seemed quite warm and cozy with your friends in the "Surprise Tea Party" - before this was publicly disclosed and Bennett started to try and get the stink of birther off of himself.
“Evidently Hawaii has had a change of heart,” Zullo said. “I’m now happy to return once again to the Hawaii Department in Health to repeat our request that Hawaii release whatever birth records may yet remain concealed in the Hawaii Department of Health vaults to public examination by a court-certified group of forensic examiners.”
1) Make sure you're following Hawaiian state law, since you're in their ballpark right now.
2) Mara Zebest, Douglas Vogt, and all your other "experts" aren't trained and certified forensic examiners, so don't be surprised if REAL experts come up with different results than what Corsi claims.
23 May - Not surprisingly, Birther Report is riding World Nut Daily's coattails again.
"Anonymous said…[Reply] the more you look at the bennet scenario the more it appears to be orchestrated by the boots
no rightful "birther" would approach bennet and ask him to verify something that they know can't be verified.
this reeks of boots posing as "birthers" in order to manipulate the SOS into doing just what happened in an attempt to marginalize the
fact that obama has no birth certificate
sos has been played by the boots and if he accepts this so called verification without in depth analysis he is a greater fool because he has been outed
based upon other web sites showing email transmissions between his dept and hawaii, if he had any balls he would go after them at the same level of detail they were coming after him
BTW what was Corsi's and Sheriff Joe's big announcement this week ? I hope it wasn't this non story with AZ SOS, but the more we get into the week the more it looks like Corsi was expecting a different outcome.
May 23, 2012 11:07 AM"
Didn't get the answer they wanted, so obviously Bennett must be part of the "plot".
"RacerJim said…[Reply] If http://www.azcentral.com/12news/Obama-Verification.pdf is what Hawaii just sent Arizona as verification then Arizona is obligated to not include Obama's name on it's ballot because what Hawaii just sent Arizona in no way, shape or form verifies that Obama is a "natural born citizen" as required by Arizon's "PRESIDENTIAL PREFERENCE ELECTION CANDIDATE NOMINATION PAPER (A.R.S. § 16-242). Period. May 23, 2012 12:02 PM"
Ah, delusion springs eternal.

They just confirmed he was born in Hawaii.
Reading comprehension - fail.
23 May - The Arizona Republic comments on Arpaio sending his goon squad to Hawaii.
For years, you have wandered in the wilderness, searching in vain for that ever-elusive evidence and the credibility that comes with actual elected officials willing to take up your quest for "truth."
Finally you have reached the promised land: Arizona, where these days lunacy is law.
Oh, who am I kidding? We've long been the land of crack pottery and conspiracy."
"And so our intrepid sheriff, Joe Arpaio -- not content with Secretary of State Ken Bennett's electoral probe -- has dispatched a deputy and his posse to Hawaii as part of his criminal investigation into the curious matter of Barack Obama's birth certificate.
Arpaio says his investigators showed up on Monday at the Hawaii Department of Health but couldn't get past the lobby."
Surprising enough, Apraio seems to be, oh, I dunno, LYING about this.
"Hawaii tells it a little differently.
"The two gentlemen who showed up at the State Department of Health yesterday and represented themselves as being from Maricopa County Sheriff's Office were not turned away," Joshua Wisch, special assistant to the Hawaii attorney general, wrote in an e-mail. "They met in a conference room with the deputy director of health and a deputy attorney general. … The registrar was not available at the time, so his supervisor, the deputy director, took the time to meet with the gentlemen. The statutory process was explained at the meeting, and all publicly available documentation was provided."
So Zullo and the "special threats deputy" (and I assume Jerome Corsi) were provided with the publicly available information from the State of Hawaii, along with the legal process needed to get official confirmation of this information.
Obviously, this won't come anywhere close to satisfying the birtherstani.
"Of course, Hawaii officials aren't going to just hand over the goods to America's self-styled toughest sheriff. Especially if they're in on the cover-up, as Arpaio clearly suspects.
"We feel that that document is a forgery," he said. "We're trying to figure out who did it. That's good police work."
So in other words, "Our mind is made up, don't confuse us with facts".
"In addition to storming the lobby, Arpaio says his island forces are developing "numerous investigative leads."
I don't imagine that it's an easy assignment. This is a complicated case that calls for sophisticated law-enforcement techniques, given those tricky Hawaiians with their website (hawaii.gov/health/vital-records/ obama.html) offering all publicly available documents.
"These include, among other things, press releases from both the past and present state directors of health verifying that they have personally seen and verified the president's birth records, as well as a link to the White House website where a copy of the certification of live birth is posted," Wisch wrote."
23 May - Disgruntled PUMAMara Zebest seems to be hard at work making herself into a laughing stock.
"In a new article today at American Thinker, graphic artist Mara Zebest -- who is identified as working "closely" with Sheriff Joe Arpaio's Cold Case Posse "in providing evidence on Obama's forged birth certificate" -- highlights some supposed anomalies in a Situation Room photo from the day of the bin Laden raid in order to prove… something.
The American Thinker, which regularly publishes embarrassing drivel like this, is viewed as credible by prominent conservatives like Rush Limbaugh, who has called it "one of my most favorite and thoughtful blogs," and Lou Dobbs, who has cited them on his Fox Business program. "
23 May - The AP picks up on Hawaii confirming (again) that President Obama was born there.
"The state of Hawaii has verified President Barack Obama's birth records to Arizona's elections chief after a nearly three-month back and forth that Arizona officials said could have ended without the incumbent's name on its November ballot.
Joshua Wisch, special assistant to Hawaii Attorney General David Louie, told The Associated Press late Tuesday that the matter is resolved after Hawaii gave Arizona the verification it was looking for.
Hawaii — which has vouched for Obama's birth in the state several times — didn't bow to the request easily. The Aloha State told Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett to prove he needed the records as part of normal business.
Wisch says Hawaii got what it needed."
23 May - So I guess I shouldn't be surprised that Birther Report isn't happy about the confirmation?
"Anonymous said…[Reply] So this idiot is taking the word from the HDOH, same HDOH that supposedly issued a fraudulent COLB on April 26th, 2011, that a law enforcement agency in your own state proved to be fraudulent. We're screwed unless John Dummett's cases work. May 23, 2012 2:38 AM:"
So basically you're screwed then?
"Brian said…[Reply] The SOS basically just killed the Birther Movement. Let me explain.
Obama and every state in the union can now say: "AZ verified the Birth Certificant and there is nothing to prove - case closed"
May 23, 2012 7:00 AM"
"Anonymous said…[Reply] According to T.M.Ballantyne's book "Oh Really, O'Reilly", an excellent detailed investigation of O.whodat's false documents and eligibility dispute, and the impenetrable levels of corruption on this issue in the DHOH and the bureaucrats involved in a massive cover-up of Barack Hussin Obama's birth records, "Wisch, the spokesman for the attorney general's office (former chair of the Howard Dean W.H. bid)said state law does not in fact permit the release of "vital records" including an original "record of live birth"-even to the individual whose birth it records." This is a BLATANT lie against the HI statutes that control the release of vital records. That such an entrenched Obot (D) is the one to "verify" O.whodat's forged birth certificate is another travesty in the manipulation of law and the truth that surrounds the Kenyan-born Fraud in Chief. It also reveals the whiny status of the AZ SOS Bennett, his wimpy request allowed him to accept any type of validation with no specific request about what he would accept…like the microfilm or REAL birth certificate. Whisch's certification is no more than a nod to the forgery and Bennett now admits his only objective was to satisfy those annoying birthers. He will have a harder time denying the revelations of the investigation by Sheriff Arpaio, who outranks him in the hierarchy of political office holding. May 23, 2012 8:14 AM"
Since when does a county sheriff "outrank" a elected state official???
23 May - Meanwhile, in Florida:
"Court records obtained by The Associated Press indicated that 20-year-old Joaquin Amador Serrapio Jr. will enter a plea of guilty after initially telling the court he was not guilty.
A Secret Service investigation earlier this year concluded that Serrapio posted threats to Facebook under the alias “Jay Valor” prior to a visit the president made to the University of Miami.
“Who wants to help me assassinate Obummer while he’s at UM this week?” a Feb. 21 posting asked.
“If anyones going to UM to see obama today, get ur phones out and record. Cause at any moment I'm gonna put a bullet through his head and u don’t wanna miss that! Youtube!” Serrapio allegedly wrote on Feb. 23.
After being tipped off by the the Coral Gables Police Department, Secret Service agents went to Serrapio’s home and found an iPad open to the Facebook posting."
23 May - Dr. Orly continues to try and get her Mississippi Birther Ballot Jihad moved back to federal courts.
(Scribd link here)
"Only after the service of process is perfected and ALL the defendants agree to removal to the Federal court, a lawful removal can be accomplished. As of now the Federal Court does not have jurisdiction over this case and Plaintiff Taitz respectfully moves this court to remand the case back to the Supreme Court of Mississippi, which patiently waits in abeyance to appoint a special judge and prosecute the matter of Defendant Obama using a forged birth Certificate, forged Selective Service Certificate and a stolen Connecticut Social Security number in order to fraudulently get on the ballot in the state of Mississippi."
Does she really think the Mississippi Supreme Court is chomping on the bit waiting to do all that??
Well, she is pretty delusional.
23 May - Dr. Orly is also upset that her demand for sanctions was challenged.
(Scribd link here)
"On January 26, 2012 Taitz conducted examination of seven witnesses in eligibility trial of Mr. Obama in Georgia. All of the major networks (CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS) were present and videotaped and transmitted the proceedings. Millions of viewers in the US and around the World watched the proceedings. Presiding judge, Michael Malihi, allowed all the witnesses to testify in regards to the full unredacted Social Security numbers and Social Security fraud committed by Mr. Obama according to witnesses, and Obama's use of a Connecticut Social Security number, which was never assigned to him according to E-Verify. By now Mr. Obama's Social Security number became a matter of common knowledge. By now most of the nation knows the Social Security in question and wonders, whether there will be an end to the unprecedented corruption in the US judiciary, as the Social Security Fraud, elections fraud, forgery and uttering of forged documents are flagrantly committed in the highest office of the land and a number of governmental officials, attorneys and some judges are being complicit."
Are you really sure you want the court to take official notice of the fact that the very same judge in question not only ruled AGAINST you, but found your "experts" to be without credibility??
23 May - TPM Muckracker calls birtherism the "zombie conspiracy"
"Like the monster at the end of a horror movie, birtherism refuses to stay down, no matter how many times it’s left for dead. It has been over a year since the White House tried to shove a long-form stake through the heart of the conspiracy, and yet some Republican politicians continue to offer fodder for the fringe which refuses to accept that Barack Obama is the legitimate President of the United States.
TPM’s Nick Martin has been closely following Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett’s recent adventures in birther-mongering. Bennett, the man in charge of running Arizona’s elections, threatened last week to keep Obama off the state’s ballots in November. Bennett’s shenanigans followed the lead of Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who earlier this year announced that members of a special posse had determined that a copy of Obama’s birth certificate released last year by the White House was a fraud. (Arpaio saw Bennett’s move this week and raised him an absurdity by dispatching a deputy from his “threats unit” to Hawaii as part of his probe.)
But birtherism is hardly an Arizona-only phenomenon. Signs of life from the birther hive have also recently been reported in Iowa, Colorado, Missouri, North Carolina, and Florida. (It is also worth noting, as TPM reported last week, that some of the most hardcore birthers are now so far gone that they’re saying Obama was born in America after all, only now they think his Kenyan father was a cover for his “real” father, communist Frank Marshall Davis..)"
23 May - SoS Ken Bennett just thinks he can say "closed" and walk away……
""Late yesterday, our office received the 'verification in-lieu of certified copy' from officials within the Hawaii Department of Health that we requested in March. They have officially confirmed that the information in the copy of the Certificate of Live Birth for the President matches the original record in their files.
"As Arizona's chief elections officer, I have the responsibility to certify the ballot to the state's 15 counties. At the request of numerous constituents, I merely asked Hawaiian officials to verify the information contained within President Obama's original birth certificate. They have complied with the request and I consider the matter closed.""
Oh, you poor deluded fool…… You got months to look forward to birthers calling you names, threats against you and your family, crank calls and insulting letters.
23 May - Let's take a look at that Lame Cherry article Dr. Kate recommended, shall we?
"If all the Tribes from America, Australia, Canada, England, Ireland, Denmark, Iceland, Scandinavia, Belgium, Netherlands, France and New Zealand would escape being burned up, there is but one alternative, let them take hold of God's Strength and make complete surrender to His Protection, that they may make Peace with Him! Yes, let them make peace with GOD!!!!!!"
"You must stop your rebellion America and put an end to your sexual deviance, your laziness and make yourselves washed in morality for the stench of you is menstrual blood and vomit.
Gay, pornography, sex with anyone but your spouse, aborticide from morning after pills to destroying children born to you by neglect, welfare when you should work, cheating employers and employers cheating you, looking to government and not God, all religions which do not Mandate that Jesus is thee Only Way to Salvation, are your sins of idolatry. Stop them on a national scale and a personal scale and do not content yourself that silence on this even if not doing is going to save you, for Judgment comes upon a whole nation and not just the majority of sinners."
"The days are shortening. Do not wait for the appearance of the son of perdition. Your shadow of him in the White House is already your condemnation as in the days of Manasseh, the king of sin. For him did Israel receive recompense, for Barack Hussein Obama, America and the western Europeans will receive Judgment. Behold Mannaseh repented and the sentence was delayed, but Mannaseh was Israelite and not a foreign bastard worshipped as God. There will be no delay. Once that war comes to the Middle East and that false peace treaty is initiated, there will be 3 and 1/2 years of deception, before the final darkness of 3 and 1/2 years plays out.
In Mercy the time is shortened or all life would perish. In Grace, the time would be quickened to pass swiftly IF THE AMERICAN CHILDREN WOULD CHANGE AND BE AS THEIR FOREFATHERS."
I'm going to hazard a guess here and say that Lame Cherry is off their medication.
"Make Peace with God. Reject that foreign bastard, Barack Hussein Obama and reject that Jesus denier Mitt Romney. Raise up that raped hag of Alaska hiding under her bed and thinking her murmurings are of value, and put on national mourning in perhaps God will lessen the blow.
Do that which is Right and not that which is wrong. You do wrong though and follow your leaders further into the abyss of Obama to your national hell."
"You gang raped Sarah Palin and watched in silence. You sold the Virgin to the Obama brothel and now content a Mormon mistress captivity is a bed you may slumber in, in filth. A whore is a whore and adultery is adultery with satan and satyr.
Wash the hag of Alaska off and put on national mourning, to make peace with God. You have had the Promise to fill the world with Goodness and have been betrayed by your leaders who made you evil and ground you to loving infidelity.
In as short time, they will devour you…….."
Yeah, some major, major, major issues...
23 May - The Mississippi Democratic Party files their response to Dr. Orly's demand for a stay.
(Scribd link here)
"5. Plaintiffs Brian Fedorka, Lauri Roth, Leah Lax, and Tom MacLeran have neither moved for stay nor joined Taitz’s motion; nor have they filed the required RICO case statement, nor have they responded to Defendants’ motions for judgment on the pleadings. (3)
Note the footnote:
"(3) Several “Plaintiffs” purportedly joined Taitz on the FAC. However, Taitz is the only plaintiff to have provided the contact information required under Rule 11. Taitz is the only plaintiff to have filed any pleadings other than the FAC. Taitz is the only plaintiff to have responded to any of the defendants’ motions. If the case is not first dismissed on other grounds, the MDEC intends to file a motion to dismiss these “Plaintiffs” pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. Proc. 41(b) in short order."
23 May - SoS Ken Bennett isn't the only one trying to get the stink of birther off of themselves.
"Rep. Mike Coffman (R-CO) made headlines earlier this month after he was caught on tape saying that President Obama is “not an American.” The Congressman quickly apologized for his statements and then went into hiding, avoiding public events and ignoring media requests for interviews. But this week, a reporter from a local NBC affiliate met up with Coffman after a closed door meeting and pressed him on the story. Looking visibly uncomfortable, Coffman maintained his calm and repeated, “I stand by my statement that I misspoke and I apologize” five times to five different questions. "
