So the last two days in Birtherstan have been interesting.
We have the expected fall out from the Supreme Court terminating life support on Keyes/Barnett v Obama. Sher Zieve really needs to drop the e-meters and get on some thorazine. World Nut Daily wants a second chance to lose to Esquire magazine. Dr. Orly's Indiana Birther Ballot Jihad doesn't go quite like she planned, though the answer she got wasn't unusual or unexpected.
Montgomery Sibley decides one dismissed case isn't' enough. Peed splashes past Kreep. Dr. Orly remains in 5th place. The State of Hawaii is showing a decided lack of patience with the birthers.
The biggest news seems to be World Nut Daily's favorite attorney, deadbeat dad Larry Klayman, and his Florida Birther Ballot Jihad. Complete with look alike affidavits from Joe Arpaio, Mike Zullo, and Jerome Corsi. And World Nut Daily seems to be pulling out all the stops for this one, including courtroom coverage by WND-TV.
11 June - The inmates at Birther Report take the news about the final death of Keyes/Barnett v Obama with the well-reasoned maturity and understanding we've come to expect from the birtherstani.

He obutts, when you need the constitution, do you really think it is going to be there for you after this?
Well, i'll answer it for you. NO. When you get thrown in jail during the next republican admin, don't come whining about how you got no due process or whatever. You will deserve the mistreatment you get.

11 June - Failed scientologist and writer Sher Zieve appears over at Canada Free Press.
And she's continued her decent into madness.
"Folks, Obama is continuing to issue one Executive Order after another (he has not slowed down) to both shore-up his power and/or—in case we have a miracle and Obama does lose the coming election—to ensure that the next White House occupant finds the USA in utter tatters. Remember, the US Treasury has already been gutted by the Obama/Geithner goons.
So as the Red Obama Dawn looms heavily over America’s disappearing horizon, please remember that any chance we have of rebuilding OUR country will need to include a landslide of votes against Obama and the New Global World Order…an Order that Obama and his syndicate work daily to bring to the world…and especially the USA.
Where is Congress? We now know it is either cowering in some dark corner or collaborating with the NWO tyrants. Where are the Military leaders? All too many of its leaders—and we pray NOT the real soldiers—seem to back-up the USA’s dissolution and seizure by the United Nations and its other enemies.
We are at war with our government, folks. And the ObamaGov has been at war with the American people since Obama “won” the 2008 election. The one question remaining is “Who will win…We-the-People of the destroyers?”
12 June - Larry Klayman announces that Joe Arpaio has "authorized" a Cold Case Posse affidavit in his Flordia Birther Ballot Jihad.
I'm sure Dr. Orly is going to be screaming that Klayman got this from Arpaio when she can't get Arpaio to respond to any of her subpoenas.
"Attorney Larry Klayman has announced that Sheriff Joe Arpaio has authorized an affidavit by the Cold Case Posse to support allegations of Obama document fraud cited in the Voeltz v Obama FL ballot challenge case. This should undercut previous defense arguments that previous witnesses were not credible, although their qualifications and experience should be more than sufficient to establish that Obama’s alleged proof of eligibility is fraudulent."
By the way, they want money.
"Talk is cheap. Lawyers are expensive. The time is right NOW. We are short $3600 in fees and about $3000 for expenses to get us through next weeks’s hearing. Please donate and pass this along. It is frustrating that George Zimmerman easily raised over $100,000, but we are struggling to meet expenses for this very important case. I am personally being hounded for payment and ask that you all do your part and please donate NOW."
Oh, and they accidentally slip and state that it really has nothing to do with the law or reality. (bold face mine)
"Even if we lose, we win, because political theater is one of our objectives. Obama and the rotten official power structure are being exposed more and more for all to see. This clown won’t be able to get elected dogcatcher when we’re through with him. "
So no, nothing to do with laws or reality, and everything to do with politics and their blind hatred of President Obama
Interesting. Klayman (who is both an attorney for and a writer for World Net Daily), gets an affidavit "authorized" by Joe Arpaio (who has had money collect for him by World Net Daily, and who has been parroting claims from another World Net Daily writer), and Mike Zullo (who has also been working closely with World Net Daily.)
I think it's safe to say Joesph Farah is involved in this up to his pornstar mustache.
Up until this point, Arpaio's been careful not to place his Corsi-provided evidence anywhere where it would be cross-examined in a court of law. I'm wondering if this "authorization" is an attempt to place some distance between Arpaio and Corsi's claims, so that when it is dismantled in a court of law, Arpaio can claim that he was just going on what his CCP told him. (Not to mention that it allows Arpaio to give these claims some "validity" without doing such in his jurisdiction)
On there other hand, it does allow Corsi and World Net Daily's claims to be dismantled in a court of law and for their "experts" to be shot down in flames. Not that it would stop the birthers - they would just go on about "corrupt courts".
12 June - What a surprise. World Nut Daily appeals their loss to Esquire magazine.
"WND has filed notice to appeal a federal judge’s decision to dismiss its $250 million lawsuit against Esquire magazine
WND’s suit seeks damages for a report by Esquire’s website that falsely claimed the WND Books expose “Where’s the Birth Certificate? The Case That Barack Obama Is Not Eligible To Be President” by Jerome Corsi had been recalled and repudiated by the publisher.
“We’re confident that it will be reversed very quickly,” said attorney Larry Klayman, who is representing WND in the case."
Considering how long it took the court to dismiss the case, I wouldn't suggest holding your breath. Then again, it's Larry Klayman, so please Mr. Klayman, go right ahead and hold your breath……
12 June - Courtroom observers report that Dr. Orly heard a very familiar word in Indana today.
12 June - Even though there is little love lost between Dr. Orly and the inmate at Birther Report, their reactions are pretty predictable.
"Anonymous said…[Reply] What a surprise. The stench of judicial corruption is almost overwhelming.

12 June - What a surprise. World Nut Daily pimps Arpaio's affidavit.
"Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his Cold Case Posse lead investigator have submitted sworn affidavits in a Florida case challenging President Obama’s eligibility for the election ballot of the crucial swing-state that decided the 2000 presidential election."
"Significantly, Judge Terry Lewis in Leon County – known for his rulings in the Bush v. Gore case at the center of the 2000 contested election – has confronted the White House for failing to support its claim that the term “natural born citizen” in the U.S. Constitution means something other than the offspring of two American citizens.
Lewis has scheduled a hearing for Monday at 9 a.m. at the Leon County Courthouse in Tallahassee to hear the Obama team’s motion to dismiss the case and determine whether it should go forward with discovery."
Why is my BS meter suddenly trying to peg??
"Arpaio recounts in his affidavit how, in response to the request of Maricopa County residents, he commissioned a team “of former police officers and attorneys who have worked tirelessly since last October, looking into this controversy.”
“Upon close examination of the evidence,” Arpaio states, “it is my belief that forgery and fraud was likely committed in key identity documents including President Obama’s long-form birth certificate, his Selective Service Registration card, and his Social Security number.”
Now bear in mind that the only "evidence" that the Maricopa CCCP considered in their "investigation" was stuff provided by Jerome Corsi that had already been debunked. They went out of their way NOT to consider any contrasting evidence or information.
"Zullo states in his affidavit that he advised Arpaio that the document posted by the White House as Obama’s birth certificate represents two crimes: fraud in its creation and fraud in its presentation to residents of Maricopa County and the American public as “proof positive” of Obama’s birth in Hawaii.
His investigators further determined, he says, that the Hawaii Department of Health has engaged “a systematic effort to hide from public inspection whatever original 1961 birth records the Hawaii Department of Health may have in their possession.
Zullo points to five videos the Cold Case Posse produced at a March 1 news conference to demonstrate why the White House document is suspected to be a computer-generated forgery.”
You mean the five videos repeating Mara Zebest's debunked forgery claims??
"Klayman also is submitting, as part of Corsi’s affidavit, a copy of the WND reporter’s book Where’s the Birth Certificate?”, which presents a detailed explanation and history of the natural-born citizen clause and its relevance to Obama."
Oh you have GOT to be joking!
Then again, Klayman publicly admitted that this is all political theatre.
Arpaio's Affidavit is here (PDF) It's all of two pages. What's interesting is:
"7. Upon close examination of the evidence, it is my belief that forgery and fraud was likely committed in key identity documents including President Obama's long form birth certificate, his Selective Service Registration card, and his Social Security number.
8. My investigators and I believe that President Obama's long-forn birth certificate is a computer-generated document, was manufactured electronically, and that it did not originate in a paper format, as claimed by the White House. Most importantly, the "registrar's stamp" in the computer generated document released by the White House and posted on the White House website, may have been imported from another unknown source document. The effect of the stamp not being placed on the document pursuant to state and federal laws means that there is probable cause that the document is a forgery, and therefore, it cannot be used as a verification, legal or otherwise, of the date, place or circumstances of Barack Obama's birth.
9. The Cold Case Posse law enforcement investigation into Barack Obama's birth certificate and his eligibility to be president is on-going. The on-going nature of the investigation is due to additional information that has come to light since we held the press conference in March, 2012. As soon as that information has been properly verified by the Cold Case Posse, I will release that information to the public."
A couple things come to mind:
1 - The State of Hawaii has stated repeatedly that nobody in Arpaio's office or the Maricopa CCCP ever contacted them to verify any of the information provided. Since the Mississippi Democratic Party could easily get such verification, and since even Arizona's Secretary of State could get it with a little help, it beggars the imagination to try and figure out why the Maricopa CCCP wouldn't have attempted likewise.
Unless they knew damn well that the information was legit.
2 - If the "evidence" presented to Arpaio was so convincing, then it simply defies belief that, rather than present this to to appropriate officials IN HIS OWN STATE to have official charges filed, he's instead sending this to a case clear across the country. (to an attorney with ties to Arpaio's appearant sugar daddy, World Nut Daily)
If a real law enforcement official had this kind of evidence, they wouldn't be doing press conferences and releasing information to the public. They would be arranging to file charges and and make sure the evidence collected was has airtight as possible,. The fact that Arpaio hasn't done this is speaking volumes that Arpaio, Corsi, Zullo, et al, know damn well none of their "evidence" would hold up in court.
3 - The way this is worded suggests that Arpaio is trying to give himself some wiggle room if this does blow up in his face, by giving him excuses to say "based on what I was told" or "based on the evidence I was shown". It's very weasel-worded.
4 - Arpaio's "affidavit" is pretty much 100% hearsay.
Mike Zullo's affidavit is here (PDF). It's three pages, the first page is almost a complete duplicate of Arpaio's.
"8. The Cold Case investigators further determined that the Hawaii Department of Health has engaged in what Sheriff s investigators believe is a systematic effort to hide from public inspection whatever original 1961 birth records the Hawaii Department of Health may have in their possession, including changing policies and procedures and denying valid Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests for information related to the 1961 birth records (said requests were not for any birth records)."
It's rather interesting he would make that statement, since the State of Hawaii confirmed that the Maricopa CCCP never once tried to contact them on this subject.
Not to mention that FOIA applies to Federal agencies, and not State agencies. And if they had bothered to research Hawaiian law rather than simply go "Corsi said it, I believe it, that settles it", they would have noticed that Hawaiian law prohibits the release of much of what the Maricopa CCCP was demanding.
Oh, and swift boat liar Jerome Corsi's affidavit is here (PDF)
"6. At Sheriff Arpaio's request, I agreed to tim over to the Cold Case Posse all the research I conducted to write my book "Where' s the Birth Certificate: The Case that Barack Obama is Not Eligible To Be President," published May 17, 2011, as well as all relevant research I conducted subsequently."
So I think it's safe to assume that all the "evidence" used had been long debunked before Corsi ever talked to the Maricopa CCCP.
"9. Based as well on extensive research and investigation, I have written and published a book on the subject of Barack Obama's eligibility to be president of the United States and found that, at a minimum, there are significant issues of fact that are in dispute as to where he was born, Hawaii as he claims, or outside of the United States and its territories. I am incorporating into this affidavit the contents of my book: "Where's the Birth Certificate?: The Case that Barack Obama is Not Eligible to be President" which sets forth my findings, as Exhibit 1. I attest to the accuracy of my book."
You mean the accuracy of a book that was debunked and proven to be a pack of lies BEFORE IT WAS RELEASED???
I will also note that all three affidavits looked and sounded very much the same, right down to the same formatting. Wonder who on World Nut Daily's staff wrote them up....
12 June - Larry Sinclair's kilt-wearing incompetent disbarred attorney, fresh off his birther lawsuit's dismissal, files ANOTHER birther lawsuit!
"Montgomery Blair Sibley, the disbarred D.C. attorney and presidential write-in candidate, has not wasted time since the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia dismissed his birther lawsuit on June 6.
"I immediately filed suit in the D.C. Superior Court against the D.C. Board of Elections [and Ethics]," Sibley told The Huffington Post on Tuesday.
This new lawsuit, filed June 8, asks that the Board of Elections and Ethics be compelled to "respond to investigate Sibley's Request challenging the eligibility of Barack Hussein Obama to be on the November 6, 2012, General Election ballot as a Presidential candidate."
12 June - Ah, Dr. Orly. She's like the legal version of a crazed, tertiary syphilis-riddled energizer bunny. (malware and redirect warning)
"FOR TECHNICAL REASONS INDIANA CASE WILL BE REFILED AS 2 CASES: ONE FOR FRAUD, NEGLIGENCE AND BREACH OF FIDUCIARY DUTIES, SECOND FOR AGENCY REVIEW

If at first you don't succeed, litigate, litigate, and litigate again.
"Judge Reid did not find any merit in the claims by corrupt assistant attorneys that I practice law without license in Indiana. Judge Reid confirmed that I have a right to appear in Indiana pro se, which maens that all of the Psy Op claims of sanctions were bogus."
Funny, the judge didn't rule on either of those subjects.
"Refiling will be done shortly. As Arpaio and Zullo issued their sworn affidavits, we will attach copies of their sworn affiddavits to the complaint, as it is being refiled.
Ah, so she's piggybacking on Klayman and World Nut Daily, since they won't help her any.
12 June - Not surprisingly, the inmates at Birther Report are mindlessly repeating World Nut Daily. Again.

His comment about Dr. Orly's "lack of ability" is amusing. But the rest of it is standard birther lies.
One new twist, Kreep's claim that not only did President Obama's step-grandmother witness his birth in Kenya, but performed a "Zulu birth ritual". Which is weird, since Sarah Obama is a Luo, not a Zulu.
Maybe to Kreep, they all look alike……
12 June - Get the feeling that the State of Hawaii has pretty much lost all patience with the birtherstani??
"When asked in an email identified as being from WND if there ever was an explanation for Abercrombie’s not finding the documentation in light of its easy access to state officials a short time later, she refused to answer.
“What news organization are you with?” she demanded. “We get frequent birther questions and this would fall in that category.”
Subsequently, she refused to respond to email questions about the issue that the governor raised.
When WND called, a receptionist in the office responded to the same inquiry with “That’s been done” – apparently meaning president had released the birth certification image. But she indicated she would not respond to further questions, promising to take a message and have someone call back."
13 June - And we seem to have a sneak preview of Dr. Orly's latest tactic. Namely harassment and filing of bogus ethics complaints against any attorney who dare go against her. (malware and redirect warning)

13 June - World Nut Daily announces that "WND-TV" is going to provide video coverage of Klayman's Florida Birther Ballot Jihad.
"WND-TV will provide gavel-to-gavel, live video coverage of the latest challenge to Barack Obama’s constitutional eligibility in a courtroom hearing that could deny him ballot access to this all-important electoral swing state in November.
Judge Terry Lewis, best known for presiding over the 2000 Bush v. Gore election dispute, will consider arguments from attorney Larry Klayman and attorneys for the Obama campaign. The hearing will focus on Obama’s claim to be a “natural born citizen,”” as required under Article 2, Section 1 of the Constitution.
Lewis is credited with making crucial rulings in the contested 2000 presidential election, when ultimately a Florida vote recount was halted by the U.S. Supreme Court and George W. Bush was declared the winner.
WND-TV has been designated by the court as the official pool TV service providing all other TV stations and networks with feeds."
Wonder if it "WND-TV" is gonna be Dean Haskins and his "Vattelvision" again? And doesn't it seem rather…..interesting……just how much World Nut Daily is hyping this one. Almost like all the players on the plaintiff side are somehow involved with WND…….
