In today's dispatches, Joesph Farah is caught lying. Again. Dr. Orly still thinks that screaming "traitor" at anyone who looks at her cross-eyed is an effective legal and social strategy.
George Miller gives Larry Klayman a reach-around with a happy ending. Looks like I have a reader or two at Birther Report. The Montana Republican Party keeps it classy with a K(KK). The Extra-Special bucket of PAC releases their FEC filings. Lame Cherry continues to disgust me.
Dr. Kate is still nursing a grudge over 2008. Dr. Orly has a tantrum against Caroline Kennedy. Larry Klayman spends the day before his birther ballot jihad hearing calling for extra-judicial means to remove President Obama from office.
"The Fogbow" gets a shootout in the media. Jerry Colette whines to the court. And the hearing Larry Klayman has in Florida doesn't go like WND was claiming it would.
15 June - Over at ConWebBlog
"Joseph Farah whines in his June 12 WorldNetDaily column:
I’ve been called “the king of the birthers” because of my commitment to pursuing the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth about Obama’s life story. Yet I have never claimed he was born in Kenya. In fact, when pushed in countless interviews my answer has always been the same: I don’t know where Obama was born.
Farah is lying. We've documented how Farah used his column at least twice to tout the (discredited) claim that Obama's grandmother said he was born in Kenya. And obviously, WND's promotion of a purported "Kenyan birth certificate" for Obama qualifies, especially given WND's egregious breath of journalistic ethics by not bothering to verify its authenticity before publishing it, which most certainly had to be signed off at the highest levels of WND -- meaning, of course, Farah.
Farah is a stunningly shameless liar by claiming he never pushed the idea that Obama was born in Kenya in the face of evidence showing the contrary. But that kind of shameless lying is what it takes, apparently, to run WND."
15 June - Birther Report piddles on the carpet over the news that Gary Kreep may have actually won a judgeship in San Diego County.
"Anonymous said…[Reply] I wonder what would happen if a eligibility case came up before Gary!??! That would be interesting. June 15, 2012 10:48 PM"
Well, if he had any ethics at all he would recuse himself, or face a possible overturn in appeals court.
"obamaandholderupshitcreek said…[Reply] Obama and Holder need to be put in the same cell at levenworth for life w/o the possibility of parole. Only furnishing needed would be prayer rugs. June 16, 2012 8:11 AM"
15 June - Dr. Orly attempts to hijack Joe Arapaio's affidavit to Larry Klayman, to use in her appeal of her loss against the Selective Service Administration
(Scribd link here)
"This affidavit makes it an air tight argument that the Social Security number (redacted) does not belong to Barack Hussein Obama and Mr. Obama does not have an expectation of privacy is using a Social Security number, which was not legally assigned to him."
Actually it makes an air-tight argument that Arpaio is fully willing to parrot anything Jerome Corsi tells him to.
"It also makes it imperative for this court to grant the appeal En Banc, as not doing so would constitute a criminal complicity by this court not only in the case of the biggest elections fraud and forgery in the history of this nation, but high treason as well, as by denying access to the original SS-5 application to this Social Security number, this court will be aiding and abetting usurpation of the US Presidency and position of the Commander-in-Chief by a foreign national with forged identification papers."
Couldn't pass up a second chance to insult and threaten the judges now, could you??
What's funny is that only first three pages are the motion to supplement She attached her original petition for an en banc hearing (the one where she calls the judges traitors unless they agree with her) as exhibit "1", and THEN attaches Joe Arpaio's affidavit as exhibit "2".
Just because, you know, it IS all about her.
16 June - George Miller at Obama Ballot Challenge breathlessly reports their "any day now" hopes for Monday's Larry Klayman Birther Ballot Jihad in Florida.
"Monday’s event is just to hear a motion for dismissal and debate the nature of the “natural born Citizen” requirement for the Presidency. "
Funny, Klayman and World Nut Daily seem to be hyping it more.
"Win or lose, the case will likely be appealed and will drag out much dirty laundry for the public to hear, see and smell. He won’t be able to get elected dogcatcher, when we’re done with him, compliant media notwithstanding."
Ah, so Miller is supporting Klayman's claim this is all "political theatre", and it's sole aim is simply to try and smear President Obama rather than provide anything like "facts" or "evidence".
"Our Tea Party took a poll and overwhelmingly decided that Obama’s eligibility is suspect, or definitely nonexistent and authorized action, including endorsement of Surprise, AZ Tea Party initiative, Maricopa County Sheriff’s “Cold Case Posse” and petitioning officials."
Oh really? What did your Klan klavern decide?? And your militia group?? What about your Sovereign Citizens lunch club??
"If nothing else, we will make sure that “Obama” won’t even be able to be elected dogcatcher, when we are finished with him. We would prefer a very long vacation in Gitmo for him."
Miller seems fond of the "dogcatcher" meme.
"Sam Sewell., or should I say Rev. Sam Sewell, Florida Ballot Challenge Manager, is an ordained minister, psychotherapist, writer/blogger and confirmed eligibility “Proofer”
You forgot "Shaklee salesperson".
And that's UNLICENSED "Pastoral Therapist". Might as well get it right.
"( we won’t use the Obots’ favorite pejorative for us herein). "
What, you mean "nut job"? Or "conspiracy addict"??
"I (George Miller) am VP of Obama State Ballot Challenge, Tea Party co-founder, Republican delegate unsuccessfully trying to reform GOP, blogger and militiaman."
Funny, I had joked about the Militia Group" part.
I should know better.
"How do we thank all the private citizens who gathered and vetted so much evidence? Just a few are Susan Daniels, Rev. James Manning, Ed Sampson, Orly Taitz, Neil Sankey, Doug Vogt, Paul Irey, Mara Zebest, Jerome Corsi, Don Fredrick, Charles Kerchner, Dean Haskins, Bob Nelson, Tracy Fair, Pamela Barnett, Andrew Breitbart "
Funny how, in death, the birthers have all adopted Andrew Breitbart as one of them, when, in life, Breitbart hated the birthers.
"We must concede that our opponents have done a masterful job at controlling the national conversation and in prevailing in legal battles"
Yeah, it's funny what happens when you have the facts, the law, the Constitution, and reality on your side.
"We compliment them on their mastery, but condemn their lack of patriotism and cowardice."
Funny, we're not the ones calling for military coups and the overthrow of the government. We're not the ones trying to rewrite or ignore the Constitution.
And we're not the ones sending their opponents death threats and harassment.
I know who the real patriots and the real cowards are. And the birthers are neither patriots or heroes.
"Expect them to claim that the law doesn’t apply, that Supreme Court precedents don’t apply, or don’t mean what they really say, which they do."
No, we'll leave that to the birthers.
16 June - I'm amused. From "Birther Report"
Joel Gilbert posts a new video pimping his "dreams of my real father" crock of lies.
Let's see. Scary music, out of focus pictures of scary black men, and oh look! VINTAGE PORN that Joel Gilbert claims are pictures of Stanley Ann Dunham.
At 0:15, there's a close up of the cover from "Bizarre Life" magazine, Issue #9.
What's interesting is that the Fetish Nostalgia site "30sg.com" has some later issues of that magazine for sale. The oldest being #412, published in 1966. There's an issue #556 from 1968 as well. So we might assume a once a week printing schedule. Which means that #9 would have been out in 1957 or 58.
At 0:19, we have the cover of "Exotique" #6, and at 0:25, the cover of #4. Exotique was printed between 1955 and 1959. 30sq.com has issue #10 - published in 1957.
0:31 shows the cover of "Secret Pleasures" by Carlson Wade. 30sq.com shows that as a photo collection of Exotique - published in 1958
0:40, "Battling Babes". And guess what, it's a Exotique magazine from the mid 50's
0:47, "Exotique" #2. Would have been 1955.
The only thing that Joel Gilbert seems to have proven here is he's got a bit of a vintage porn fetish. And can't tell the difference between early to mid 50's erotica and early 60's material.
Here's the big thing though. The Dunham's didn't move to Hawaii until 1960. And during the time period these magazines were published in, Stanley Ann Dunham would have been in her early to mid teens and in Jr. High and High School (they moved to Mercer Island, WA, in 1956 when she was 13) And the pictures of the woman in question are clearly NOT someone that young.
June 16, 2012 7:12 PM"
*Chuckle* Looks rather familiar…..
"Anonymous said…[Reply] The "Terri" comments above….
All of those dates of magazine publication must be verified with links, otherwise I consider it all a bunch of lies. Terri is an boot and boots usually make up stories and lies to suit their agenda. Unless 'Terri' can prove those dates then its all bogus.
BTW, that is Ann Dunham with lots of makeup in the photos, unless she had a twin sister, which I doubt.
June 16, 2012 11:34 PM"
What a pity "Terri" didn't cite her source. Or that the birtherstani couldn't be bothered to do the same research I did (has well as Loren Collins did) to debunk those covers.
"Mary said…[Reply] This is disgusting. How far have we sunk that we are smearing the reputation of a dead woman? There's no way that this is Stanley Ann Dunham; it simply doesn't look like her, and she would have been too young at the time these photos were taken. June 17, 2012 11:41 AM"
You're expecting the birthers to have any class at all??
And oh look:
"Dr. Ron Polland said…[Reply]
Stanley Ann Dunham, the photo, is a composite image.
Stanley Ann Dunham, the person, is a composite character.
There never was one Stanley Ann Dunham (especially since Obama called her Shirley in his DFMF, 1995 edition, and the first SAD died in the 1970's).
SAD never graduated Mercer Island High School in 1960, never went to Hawaii in 1960, never met Obama Sr. there.
That Senior yearbook photo of her is a morph of young Obama's face with the face of FMD's nude model. That's why she was tagged as SAD.
Spend two bucks and buy my book, "A picture is worth 1,000 lies"
It contains 100 annotated Photoshops of Obama's life along with a tongue-in-cheek description of how they were faked.
June 17, 2012 12:12 PM"
Polland/Polarik seems to be annoyed at his fellow birtherstani.
16 June - The San Jose Mercury News chimes in on the birtherstani.
"In 2008 no one questioned John McCain's eligibility to become president. Yet McCain was born in -- wait for it -- Panama, in a U.S. naval hospital in the Canal Zone, territory that the U.S. controlled in much the same way that it controls Guantánamo Bay in Cuba. If the Birthers want to argue that the Panama Canal Zone was U.S. soil, then they will have to concede that Guantánamo Bay is U.S. soil and subject to the rule of U.S. law.
Then there is George Romney, Mitt's father. The elder Romney was born in Mexico and came to the United States with his U.S. citizen parents. When George Romney ran for president in 1967, no one seriously questioned his citizenship.
Some of the people who question Obama's citizenship, like Sen. Dean Heller, R-Nev., and presidential candidate Ron Paul, R-Texas, also say they want to end jus soli -- citizenship for immigrants' children born on U.S. soil. They really can't have it both ways. With neither jus sanguinis nor jus soli, we would not have any natural born citizens at all.
Some argue that this is all about race. Questioning Obama's citizenship, like suggesting he is a Muslim, is thinly veiled code. What the conspiracy theorists really mean, the theory goes, is that Obama is not legitimately president because he is black.
I don't know if that is true. But I know it is time to end this Birther nonsense. It doesn't matter where Obama was born (it was in Hawaii, but it doesn't matter). He is a U.S. citizen, and he is president. Get over it."
17 June - Oh, how charming.
"Outside the Montana state Republican Party convention this weekend was an outhouse labeled the “Obama Presidential Library” and covered in painted-on bullet holes.
Inside the outhouse contained a fake birth certificate for Barack Hussein Obama, according to the Helena Independent Record.
It was stamped “Bull——.” A graffito advised “For a Good Time call 800-Michelle (crossed out), Hillary (crossed out) and Pelosi (circled in red.)”
17 June - Birther Report parrots George Miller's pimping of Larry Klayman's case.
"Anonymous said…[Reply] At this point in this constitutional crisis, the sob/usob NBC case; any judge or any person blocking the NBC issue or covering up or not reporting this fraud is either a traitor to the USA or they are a TRAITOR to the USA! They are also commie bastards and scumbags full of demonic spirits. They deserve a TRAITORS fate! June 18, 2012 6:18 AM"
Ah yes, the "I disagree with you so you should be put to death" school of thought.
17 June - And a bit more
"There was less laughter — although plenty of picture-taking — of an outhouse labeled “Obama Presidential Library” parked outside Missoula’s Hilton Garden Inn, where the convention took place.
Nothing on the outhouse indicated who was responsible for it, although it made an appearance in the Memorial Day parade in Corvallis in Ravalli County.
The outhouse was painted to look as though it had been riddled by bullets.
Inside, a fake birth certificate for Barack Hussein Obama made reference to the disproven controversy over the president’s origins. It was stamped “Bull----.” A graffito advised “For a Good Time call 800-Michelle (crossed out), Hillary (crossed out) and Pelosi (circled in red.)”
State GOP Chairman Will Deschamps of Missoula said he didn’t know who’d brought the outhouse, but dismissed it as “a sideshow.”
“It’s not something I’m going to agonize over,” he said. “Some of that stuff is not real good taste. We do have a president of the United States, and we have to honor that.”
17 June - Curious about who is funding the Super Duper Extra Crispy Bucket of Article II PAC??
Well, you can find the FEC filings here.
A PDF of their Year End filing, filed 17 Feb 2012, is here
They had $4321.50 in total contributions.
Some familiar names though.
Charles Kerchner threw more good money after bad and gave $100.00
George Miller of Obama Ballot Challenges gave $100.00
Former PUMA and PAC Founder Helen Tansey gave a whopping $10.00
A PDF of their April 2012 quarterly filing is here
They had all of $10,469.86 to play with this time. Not exactly groundbreaking amounts.
Linda Bentley of the "Sonoma Times" gave $10.00.
Susan Daniels of poorly researched SSN's gave $50.00
Neil Turner of the San Diego "Minutemen" and various calls to treason gave $25.00
Gary Wilmott, who's treasurer of this PAC, gave $150.00 on 3 Jan and $200.00 on 24 Jan.
Dawn Irion (Van Irion's wife) gave $50.00
Arnie Rosner gave $500.00
Gary Wilmott coughed up $200.00 more.
On the other hand
Susan Daniels got $100 for "Professional Services" (net profit, $50)
Cort Wrotnowski of one of the first failed birther cases got $950 for "advertising"
Dean Haskins got $206.26 for "Travel Expenses"
Not a lot of big ticket donations - I only counted a handful that were more than $200 - and not a lot of cash to play with.
I thought the birthers loved to talk about all the millions of people who support them?
17 June - I really need to stop looking at Lame Cherry…..
"The following is I suppose in honor of Uncle David Rockefeller, as without his Ashkenaz research into the cranium shapes built on Jewish scribes studying such things, the world would not have bothered with forensic racial genetics or pulled out brains to figure out that Asians have large skull capacity compared to Negroids."
Wow. It's a new Lame Cherry record. Three racist comments in the very first paragraph!
"One can note that the Asian mouth is turned down and rounded. It is why weak Negroids and Caucasoids lust in yellow fever after Asian women, in the rounded and turned down mouths have that comforting appeal to sucking infants."
"In comparison, one can compare a real African Arab in Barack Obama sr. and note that Obama has nothing in common with those butt lips, no more than Heinz Ward does.
Furthermore in Malcolm 10, one sees Obama has nothing in common with the Afroid American of European dominated looks with the Negroid influx from the maternal side in willing slaves copulating with white masters."
What's funny is that Dr. Kate, Dr. Orly and Birther Report all continue to cite Lame Cherry's articles, while screaming "We're not racist, honest!!" to anyone who will listen.
"None of this is to say that Barry Chin aka Barack Hussein Obama, does not have white racial lines in him, because he does have Arab and quasi European lineage, Quasi being he is in being risen up from the Asian dope fields of Islam, a progeny of great interest to the Rothschilds who plucked him up and rose him to heights no dope headed mentally retarded runs like a duck illegal border buster should ever have showered upon them."
Sorry, I couldn't finish reading much more of this one.
17 June - Deep down in Dr. Kate's venom, sewage, and bile filled little heart, there flickers some traces of the PUMA she was back in 2008.
"The fundamental election fraud committed by the Democratic Party and the Democratic National Convention in 2008 is documented in their nomination papers submitted to every Secretary of State."
Translation - "Wahh!, the scary black man beat out Dear Hillary!!"
"The Democrats will commit the same kind of fraud in 2012 after the nomination of Barack Obama when Debbie Wasserman-Schultz in her private capacity as Chair of the DNC, private club , certifies to every state that Obama is constitutionally qualified for the Presidency. This will happen in early September, and at that point and with that evidence, DWS commits the same fraud as Pelosi did in 2008 on the SoS of your state, which is a prosecutable crime. "
Translation - "Wahh, the DNC didn't dump Obama and nominate Dear Hillary for 2012 instead!!"
Oh and look. Street theatre:
June 18, 2012 at 12:04 am
Its time also the local democrat headquarters be picketed for promoting a fraudulent candidate. Public shame. A recent t-shirt:
“Obama: born un-American. Obama supporters: un-American by choice”"
This coming from a woman who has repeatedly called for violent revolt and military coups.

17 June - Caroline Kennedy sends out an email to Obama supporters asking people to sign a fathers day card for President Obama.
And proving she's the social and political equivalent of a turd in the party punchbowl, Dr. Orly throws a snit fit. (malware and redirect warning)
"WRITE TO CAROLINE KENNEDY, LET HER KNOW THAT SHE SOILED HER FATHER’S MEMORY BY ASKING PEOPLE TO SIGN A CARD TO CRIMINAL OBAMA, USURPING THE US PRESIDENCY WITH FORGED DOCUMENTS
Posted on | June 17, 2012"
"Wahhh! How DARE anyone say ANYTHING nice about that Scary Black Man!!!"
"Caroline Kennedy showed her unbelievable ignorance or stupidity or disrespect to her father by asking people to sign cards to criminal Obama, usurping the US presidency, while using forged identification papers. Please forward to her these docs and demand that she immediately withdraw her support for Obama and demand his immediate removal from office and prosecution for biggest elections fraud and forgery and Social Security fraud in the U.S. history."
You know, I have a sneaking suspicion that Caroline Kennedy knows quite a bit about stupid conspiracy theories, and the fools who promote them. And more than likely doesn't have much patience with them.
I also suspect she knows all too well what the hate speech and paranoia the birthers peddle can lead to.
17 June - So the day before his Florida hearing, Larry Klayman writes an article for World Nut Daily that I rather hope the defense attorneys take note of.
"Then there is the regime of Barack Hussein Obama. Having defrauded American voters that he is eligible to be president, given that he is not a “natural born citizen” as required by the Constitution, for “good measure” he spent the next four years not only foisting his evil socialist, anti-Christian, anti-Semitic, pro-Muslim agenda on our nation and Israel, but also compromising the national security of both countries. "
And your proof of this is???
"These treasonous acts – undertaken not just to boost his re-election prospects but obviously also to help his Muslim brothers in Iran and elsewhere"
Wow. Racist much??
"Obama’s treasonous acts are the most serious and damaging in American history!"
I suspect it may not help your case much to call the defendant a "traitor".
"It now comes to “We the People” to do what the legal establishment will not: criminally indict, try and convict our president. Let’s start with the biggest criminal and president in American history, Barack Hussein Obama, and empanel a citizen’s grand jury to not only hold him accountable under the rule of law, but to set an example for other presidents that we will no longer allow them to commit treason with impunity, much less violate the people’s trust."
So let's see. The day before your hearing in Florida, you call for an illegitimate "citizens grand jury" to basically overthrow the US Government and lynch the standing President of the United States. All because you don't believe the "legal establishment" will do what you want."
That tells me you're not overly confident in your case. And that you could care less about the rule of law.
But then again, the Florida case is only "political theatre", isn't it??
18 June - Dr. Orly still has a mad at Caroline Kennedy for DARING to support President Obama (malware and redirect warning)
"CAROLINE KENNEDY IS NOT A CHILD, SHE IS A 54 Y.O. ATTORNEY, WHO SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR COMMITTING TREASON AND AIDING AND ABETTING ELECTIONS FRAUD AND USE OF FORGED DOCUMENTS COMMITTED BY OBAMA
Posted on | June 18, 2012 "
18 June - The Raleigh News Observer does an article about the birther debunking site "The Fogbow"
"More than a year after President Barack Obama produced a copy of his birth certificate documenting his arrival on Earth in a Honolulu hospital in 1961, the conspiracy theory persists that his citizenship is bogus, a forgery, a fiction, a liberal plot involving Kenya, Indonesia, Communists and Malcolm X.
So from his North Raleigh home, Bill Bryan keeps up a spirited fight against this line of thinking known as the “birther” movement, piloting what is probably the best-known online counterpunch: The Fogbow.
Nearly two years old, with roughly 300 members worldwide, Bryan’s Fogbow exists to shove a burr under the saddle of birthers and their intractable belief that Obama wasn’t born in the United States, and Bryan provides detailed and wildly funny attacks."
18 June - Video of Klayman's Florida Birther Ballot Jihad
Funny, I thought Klayman said the Judge was going to demand proof that Obama was indeed a Natural Born citizen. Telling both sides to prepare motions for orders doesn't seem like that.
Klayman also seems to think a child conceived via artificial insemination isn't a "natural born citizen". How very weird.
18 June - It's rather amazing the utter contempt that Comrade Orly has for little things like "Freedom of Speech", "academic freedom", "facts", "the truth", or "rule of law". (malware and redirect warning)
"WRITE TO UNIVERSITY OF SANTA BARBARA, DEMAND REMOVAL OF PAUL SPIKARD FROM THE POSITION OF THE HISTORY PROFESSOR FOR ACADEMIC DISHONESTY, DEFRAUDING THE PUBLIC AND BEING CRIMINALLY COMPLICIT IN ELECTIONS FRAUD BY BARACK OBAMA USING FORGED DOCUMENTS
Posted on | June 18, 2012 "
Dr. Orly's mindset is still firmly embedded in Soviet-style censorship, with herself as the Zampolit.
18 June - And we get the World Nut Daily spin on Klayman's Florida Birther Ballot Jihad hearing.
"Attorneys arguing on behalf of Barack Obama’s re-election plans today urged a Florida judge to decide that Obama is not yet the Democratic nominee for president – and ignore evidence challenging his eligibility."
Actually I think it was less "ignore" as much as "what evidence?"
"Attorneys representing Obama argued that the Florida presidential preference primary, on which Obama’s name was the only Democrat nominee, does not make Obama the Democratic nominee for president yet."
Well, yes. He's the presumptive nominee, but it won't be official until the DNC convention.
"Klayman accused them of running a “shell game” and simply trying to put off the issue, as numerous court cases did during the 2008 election, until the election was over and Obama was inaugurated."
You mean Philip Berg and the various cases that copy-catted his case, all of which were dismissed?
And in comments, well…
Watch the judge mysteriously die like Andrew Breitbart. Remember, you heard it here first.
I pray nothing happens to this judge like it did with Breitbarts "sickness-demise" if he rules Obungho ineligible
Ah, the conspiracy-addled.
18 June - Larry Klayman isn't the only birtherstani in Florida with a birther ballot jihad going. Sam Sewell's friend Jerry Colette and his "great legal mind" file a "Plaintiff's Verified Opposition to Defendant's Motions to Dismiss".
(Bold face mine)
(Scribd link here)
"This court is, already, at a major juncture in this important constitutional matter and faces two antipodal choices. It could choose to, either:
●Go down in obscurity with the 100+ other courts who have, in one way or another, swept under the rug the key issues, which this and similar cases have presented, and take anyone or more of the various ways out which defendants have offered in their motions; or
●Go down in history as the first court to give serious consideration to the significant issues presented here"
So basically the court could ether follow the rule of law and dismiss this case like the 100+ past birther cases, or else ignore the law and allow this farce to proceed.
"Allow the case to proceed on the merits;"
We saw this happen in Georgia. The birthers arguments about the merits of their case was so convincing that they lost to an empty table.
"3. Defendants stated that every state and federal court that has considered the issues presented in my complaint have rejected them.
4.While that statement may be true, technically, it is, nonetheless, quite misleading."
Translation - "Yes, I know every past court has rejected my arguments, but this time you've got to believe them, honest!!"
"6.First of all, across this country, there are still about ten pending cases on similar issues.
7.Furthermore, defendants failed to disclose to this court how little consideration other courts have actually given to these important constitutional issues"
There's ALWAYS been pending birther cases. Because the birthers keep thinking that the judge in such and such a case will ignore the law and get rid of the scary black man.
And the courts have given the birthers arguments exactly the consideration those arguments deserve.
Which is why the birthers in Georgia lost to an empty table.
"b.To date, not one single court has yet:
i.Reviewed (or had an adverse party or expert witness review) defendant Obama’s
original government or hospital birth documents, which would easilyresolve, once and for all, the question of his birthplace"
Why would they? State of Hawaii has confirmed the documents validity. Full Faith and Credit Clause of the US Constitution comes into play.
"10.Defendants closed the third sentence of their preliminary statements by telling this court that my assertions questioning the eligibility of defendant Obama are “baseless,” then ended their preliminary statements with that same idea, only slightly rephrased"
Maybe because they are??
"h.As I have alleged in paragraph 33 of my complaint, “Defendant Obama has repeatedly promised that he would have ‘the most transparent administration in U.S. history.’”
i.Yet, as I have alleged in paragraph 36 of my complaint, to this date, “ no original governmental or hospital documentary or microfiche records of the alleged birth, in Hawaii, of defendant Obama, which would easily resolve the issue of defendant Obama’s birthplace, have yet been made public."
Because such records are protected by state and federal privacy laws. Something the birtherstani continue to fail to understand.
" j.Until defendant Obama’s original government and hospital birth documents are examined by a competent witness acceptable to plaintiff, there is an obvious basis to question his eligibility."
I want to repeat that line:
"by a competent witness acceptable to plaintiff"
This is Jerry Collette saying that he's not willing to accept the word of the State of Hawaii (despite the Full Faith and Credit Clause), or any other forensic or document specialist that he doesn't personally agree with.
Considering Collette then goes on to cite the Maricopa CCCP's "evidence" as "proof" the long form is a forgery, I think we know quite well what "competent witness" Collette would find "acceptable to plaintiff."
"21.Just how wrongful, in fact, are defendants’ and their attorneys’ fallacious contentions of baselessness, contrived mischaracterizations of reality, and lack of candor? Are they: a.Attempted fraud upon the court; b.Violations of RPC Rules 4-3.1 and 4-3.3; c.Reprehensible, to the level of being deplorable, despicable, and/or detestable; d.Shameful, in the essence of disgraceful, dishonorable, and/or disreputable; e.Lying, by being deceitful, deceptive, and/or dishonest; and/or f.Merely misleading, no more than devious, disingenuous, and/or duplicitous?
22.However we label these intentional misstatements of defendants, they transgress any applicable standard of acceptable advocacy, and should not be tolerated in this court,even on behalf of the President of the United States. (24 )
(24) They should not be tolerated even if defendants and their attorneys actually believe that defendant Obama meets the constitutional qualifications of the office."
Translation - "Wahhh! They said something mean about me!! WAHHHHHH!!"
"45.I am claiming the right to not be governed by somebody who does not meet the constitutional requirement for the office, while defendants are denying that I have such aright."
Didn't Christopher Strunk try that argument?
18 June - The Miami Herald reports on Larry Klayman's Florida Birther Ballot Jihad hearing.
"The argument has been debunked and rejected many times, but that hasn’t stopped people from continuing to file lawsuits disputing President Barack Obama’s eligibility to serve. A South Florida man is behind one of the latest challenge, asking that Obama be blocked from having his name listed on the Florida ballot this fall.
Plaintiff Michael Voeltz filed the suit in Leon County circuit court in February. His attorney, Larry Klayman, says he has evidence Obama wasn’t born in the United States and therefore is not a citizen eligible to serve as president. Even if he were born in Hawaii, Klayman said, the president isn’t a “natural born citizen” as required in the U.S. Constitution because his father wasn’t a citizen.
Gov. Rick Scott has been a critic of Obama, but his administration is siding with the president on this issue. Attorneys for Secretary of State Ken Detzner appeared at a hearing this morning alongside the president’s lawyers to argue for the case to be dismissed."
