In today's dispatches, we have a LOT of birther recycling going on. Jerome Corsi rehashes Dr. Orly's National Student Clearinghouse bit AND the INS records thing, trying to spin both about 180 from reality. The Western Center for "Journalism" rehashes the "Oh Noes, the ebil Obambi's hippotizing us!!" thing from fall of 2008.
In the meantime, Professional Seditionist Sharon Rondeau is making sure no forged envelopes escape her notice, while she also seems to have followed Carl Swensson's pidgeon-steps. The inmates at Birther Report continue to abandon all pretense of being anything other than a pack of racist hate-minded seditionists. Dr. Orly overlooks something. Larry Klayman and Van Irion both lose cases. Larry Klayman continues to tout the Return of the Fantasy Tiddlywinks League, while a couple of familiar idiots come up with a whole new way of acting like twitwaffles.
Joseph Farah continues down paranoia parkway, while investigators in Phoenix may have found some ties between World Nut Daily and Ken Bennett. The Birther Scorecard is updated, and the birthers record is intact at zero wins. Dr. Kate tries to find some religious justification for her hatred. Both Canada Free Press and Lawrence Sellin try and stir up rebellion from abroad. Lame Cherry is nutter than a forest full of squirrel turds. Rudy Davis seduces Terry Lakin…or at least his book.
And finally, I suspect that the only thing James Manning hates more than President Obama is the color of James Manning's skin.
6 July - Professional seditionist Sharon Rondeau wants to make sure the State of Hawaii didn't forge any stamps or anything…
She starts off by harassing the Arizona Secretary of State's office:
"Hello, Mr. Roberts, I had asked on two previous occasions if the Arizona Secretary of State’s office ever received a hard copy of the “Verification Letter” which was sent to you in PDF format in May and widely reported in the news, including in my newspaper, The Post and Email.
I have not received a response from you to my two previous inquiries. If I do not hear from you within three business days (by Tuesday evening, July 10, 2012), I will report to my readers that your office is unwilling or unable to confirm that the aforementioned hard copy was received from Hawaii officials.
Thank you very much.
Sharon Rondeau, Editor
The Post and Email"
And gets back:
"We received it. Thanks for your interest.
Director of Communications & Community Outreach
Ken Bennett, Arizona Secretary of State"
But that's never good enough for professional seditionist Sharon Rondeau:
"Thank you kindly for your response. Are you making public the envelope postmarked from Hawaii in which it was received?
Sharon Rondeau, Editor
The Post and Email"
At which point, one gets the idea that Mr. Roberts is getting a wee bit annoyed.
"no. we’ve accepted the envelope as authentic.
Director of Communications & Community Outreach<
Ken Bennett, Arizona Secretary of State"
But, far be it from the Pest and eFail to actually let the matter lay there! No, they've got conspiracies to feed!!
"Is it postmarked from Hawaii?
Is there an original signature on anything, such as a cover letter?
Sharon Rondeau, Editor
The Post and Email"
The Post and Email will update this report if and when a response is received."
6 July - The inmates at Birther Report are still swooning over Susan Daniel's lawsuit.
"Ralph Swain said…[Reply] On the one hand, Mrs. Daniel's law suit is D.O.A. On the other hand, it adds another straw to the load of crap that we've been piling on Nobama's back. By November, he'll be broken. And in need of a good scrubbing! :) July 6, 2012 3:31 PM"
Well, at least you admit the birther blather is all a load of crap.
Oh and look. Death threats.
"Anonymous said…[Reply] every gun they try to take needs to cost them in lives shoot for the face there is no body armor and they stop at once we need to let them know every gun will cost them lives they will run out of front men long before we run out of guns. these people all need to be arrested at once for violating our constitutional rights given to us by God. the constitution is what the government can't do to us. and number one is they can't shut us up and number two is we can protect ourselves. and we will protect ourselves. July 7, 2012 2:37 PM"
Calls for revolt:
"Anonymous said…[Reply] we need to arrest every congressman woman senator anyone who is holding an office that serves us. it is time we get to the truth. i am sick of being lied to and being called a threat to national security because we are demanding our government do the job we sent them there to do. they are not doing the job we sent them to do. they have lied covered up and are now trying to put another un constitutionally eligible person in office as VP. my fellow Americans it is now up to us. we can't believe the media they are all just as corrupt as our government. we the people are the power in this nation its time we take control of our nation and lock up all the crooks in office they are all corrupt. they call anyone crazy who questions them well its time for them to see just how crazy we can be. it is time we put the fear of God into them who work for us in government. they need to know they face jail for any violations of our rights. right now they all belong in jail. they are all lying now they have had more than enough time to know about this issue. its time to make some noise and show them who's really in charge.

"Dealio said…[Reply] Knowing what we know, I would have to say the cat is definitely out of the bag. If we wanted to, we could make it just a matter of time. How bad do we want our country back? It has yet to be seen. July 8, 2012 10:12 AM"
And people off their meds:
its going to take us all demanding that our politicians ether start telling the truth or resign. I for one am sick and tired of being called nuts for demanding the truth about Obama. we need to get it through our congressmen and women heads that we don't care what they believe, we don't care what they think. when they start working for themselves they can believe anything they like. but when they work for us they need to answer to us. I AM A CITIZEN, YOU WORK FOR ME. I DON'T BELIEVE OBAMA IS TELLING THE TRUTH ABOUT HIS LIFE STORY. HES GONE OUT OF HIS WAY AND SPENT A TON OF MONEY HIDING A WHOLE LOT OF NOTHING. TO ME THAT MEANS HES LYING HIS ASS OFF. NOW I'M SORRY HES BLACK HIS COLOR DON'T MEAN SHIT TO ME. THEY BEEN SCREAMING RACISM EVER SINCE THE GUY GOT ELECTED. I'M SICK OF BEING CALLED A RACIST WHEN I'M NOT ONE. BUT I THINK THE GUYS A LYING TRAITOR AND WE HAVE BEEN DUPED BY OUR GOVERNMENT. LADY'S AND GENTS THESE PEOPLE BELONG IN JAIL SOMETHING STINKS IN DC SO BAD IT SMELLS CLEAR TO ARIZONA. AMERICA ITS TIME WE WAKE UP WE ARE BEING TOLD THAT LOVING OUR NATION OR BELIEVING IN OUR FOUNDERS IS SOME HOW A DANGER TO A GOVERNMENT THAT IS SUPPOSE TO BE FOLLOWING THEIR IDEALS. IT SOUNDS TO ME LIKE THEY ARE NOW OUR RULERS AND NOT OUR EMPLOYEES. WE HAVE A CLASS A PROBLEM AMERICA. OUT OF CONTROL GOVERNMENT WITH A WANNA BE DICTATOR AT THE WHEEL.
July 7, 2012 5:41 PM"
7 July - How very interesting. Professional seditionist Sharon Rondeau admits she got a visit from the FBI in regards to that stolen grand jury list that Walter Fitzpatrick sent her.
"Rush then expressed his displeasure at “extensive communication back and forth” between Fitzpatrick and The Post and Email. He did not cite the website’s name, but rather, this writer specifically
Rush said Fitzpatrick “stole” the documents and sent them to a website belonging to “Sharon Rondeau,” who “posts his [Fitzpatrick's] unique theories” about government corruption at “her website.”
"Blog" would be more accurate.
"This third party, one Sharon Rondeau, is the same party who “publishes” the defendant’s continuous rantings and diatribes on her website, which is exceedingly generously self-described therein as an “electronic newspaper” and a “new media initiative of American patriots.” She is also the party to whom the Defendant sent the purloined court documents in Connecticut and from whom they were recovered by the FBI. "
So Sharon Rondeau admitted that Walter Fitzpatrick sent her the documents. (Hey, aren't there laws about receiving stolen property???) Which pretty much admits that Fitzpatrick stole them in the first place.
"She is responsible for the reprehensible public display of these records on her website, thereby betraying any lie of claims to be an actual “journalist” with any ethics or integrity."
Which is simply the facts. Sharon Rondeau has never been an actual journalist, and has never shown even the slightest amount of ethics or integrity.
"She admitted in her statement to the FBI that these records did come from the Defendant himself."
Poor Fitzpatrick. First Carl Swensson blabs to the FBI and throws Fitzpatrick and Huff under the bus, then Sharon Rondeau does the same.
"In contradiction to Rush’s assertion, the documents taken from the Monroe County courthouse, which is holding county criminal grand juries and trials in violation of current Tennessee state law, were not “seized” by the FBI at the office of The Post and Email. On February 7, 2012, a state trooper and FBI agent came and courteously asked to retrieve them if they were still in our possession, in addition to which we provided proof of having contacted the FBI and TBI about them on two separate occasions. Contrary to Rush’s statement that Sharon Rondeau made an “admission” “to the FBI,” our statement was requested and taken by the state trooper while the FBI agent stood by, looking on silently with his arms crossed."
Which sounds pretty much like an admission to me.
"How would Paul Rush have known what happened that day? His assertion in court that the documents were “seized” is completely false. Moreover, why did no one from Monroe County simply ask for the return of the documents after seeing them in redacted form at The Post and Email?"
Maybe because the retrieval of stolen property is a matter for law enforcement??
8 July - Swiftboat liar Jerome Corsi actually proves Dr. Orly wrong. Remember her "National Student Clearinghouse" claim that Obama didn't attend Columbia??
Well, it seems that "National Student Clearinghouse" got permission to share their records from Columbia University. Which confirms that he did attend that school.
Of course, since it's Jerome Corsi, there has to be some deep dark conspiracy.
"Two separate database reports from the National Student Clearinghouse have contradicted President Obama’s claim he attended Columbia University for two years."
"Swirling amid the black hole of information are a host of theories about Obama’s whereabouts – particularly during the 1981-1982 school year – including speculation he was working for the CIA in Pakistan.
Now, the clearinghouse, with permission from Columbia, has decided to make an exception to its media policy and address WND’s inquiry into the discrepancy. Why do clearinghouse records indicate Obama was at the school only during the 1982-83 school year while Obama and Columbia’s spokesman have insisted he began attending the New York City school in the fall of 1981?
Janine Greenwood, vice president and general counsel for the clearinghouse, told WND there was a “computer error” in their system that has been corrected. She said she confirmed with Columbia that Obama was at the university for two academic years, not one."
So NSC contacted Columbia, Columbia confirmed that NSC had incorrect data, and NSC corrected their database.
Which, of course, is proof of……..database mistakes.
"Greenwood said she “tried to untangle this” discrepancy one year ago after two “DegreeVerify certificates” from the Herndon, Va.-based clearinghouse –obtained through a fee-based request – indicated Obama attended Columbia College at Columbia University only in the 1982-1983 academic year, from Sept. 1, 1982 until May 31, 1983, receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree May 17, 1983.
“All I know is [the record] was right originally, and somewhere along the line it went off the rails, and then it was right again,” she said.
“We basically had two records running simultaneously, and it just depended on how you input the name and the other information as to which records you got,” she explained to WND in an interview Friday.
Greenwood confirmed a disclaimer on the clearinghouse website stating the organization relies on the accuracy of the information supplied by each educational institution and cannot edit, modify or delete any student degree or enrollment data."
So far all the information is actually disproving Corsi's claim in the first paragraph.
Funny thing that. Especially since he buries that part of it several paragraphs in, almost as if he's just expecting people to read the first couple of lines….
"The two separate reports indicating Obama attended Columbia for only one year were generated in March 2011. One, obtained by lawyer Orly Taitz, was used in a court filing contesting Obama’s eligibility. The other found its way to Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse investigating Obama’s eligibility for the presidential ballot in Arizona.
2) And just how did a copy "find its way" to Arpaio and the Maricopa CCCP??
Some I suspect Corsi's puffy purple hands were all over it….
"She said she contacted the Columbia registrar’s office last year to clear up the discrepancy.
“We have confirmed with Columbia that the two years was the correct record,” she said."
Sounds like they did the right thing to maintain the accuracy of their database then.
"In the Thursday interview, Hornsby said regarding the clearinghouse’s information: “I don’t know what they’re basing their information on or what their system is for logging, but I can confirm, as a matter of fact, that President Obama was here in September 1981 as a transfer student from Occidental.”
Asked whether he had personally seen a transcript that would verify Obama attended classes during the 1981-82 school year, Hornsby said, “You’re looking for proof I cannot provide.”
He noted academic records are protected by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, “and we don’t talk about any student’s academic records, presidents or otherwise.”
Ah, those pesky privacy laws again.
"Two weeks ago, WND submitted two paid inquiries – one with the name Barry Soetoro and the other with Barack Hussein Obama – to the National Student Clearinghouse to confirm the previous reports. The clearinghouse acknowledged receipt of the inquiries but gave no further information."
Funny thing that.
8 July - Not surprisingly, the inmates at Birther Report act as Jerome Corsi's fluffers.
And it starts with an even more inane conspiracy.
"Anonymous said…[Reply] At the beginning of bozo's presidency, a rumor was floating around that nuclear devices had been planted in every major city in America, over the past several decades and they (soros crowd) would set off the nukes if bozo was not elected POTUS. In any case this deception, this hoax is the most aggressive, the most tragic event and the biggest coupe to EVER occur on American soil, specifically for the intentional destruction of America and to bring in a one world government. It is amazing and hard to believe that all of congress are traitors and nazi infiltrators as they are intentionally allowing the enemy to destroy America, without lifting a finger to help "WE THE PEOPLE," so this seems to be help the nuke story of having legs, WHO KNOWS? It is possible and it could have been done before all the security was put in place, heck, they could still do it without us noticing. Folks we are living in perilous times, as spoken of in the bible. July 8, 2012 10:54 PM"
"Anonymous said…[Reply] He went to Patrice Lamumba University in Moscow, he works for Putin, who uses democrats, musloids and Iran as proxies to attack USA.
Obama is a commieprog.
This past week he did nothing when Putin sent two nuclear capable bombers into West Coast USA airspace.
July 9, 2012 12:54 AM"
And then it gets down to threats.
"Me hates White House squatters said…[Reply] Indeed, it is amazing how so many discrepancies involving this sack of shit have been implausibly explained away. It's time to put an end to this fucking game. July 8, 2012 11:35 PM"
And open racism.
"ProudWASP said…[Reply] Before we all are sucked more into the hole, read this:
A. Fraser has found the truth:
only WhiteAngloSaxonProtestants (WASPs) are NBCs and can be POTUS. No Catholics, no Hispanics, No Jews, No Blacks. And no women !
I only doubt that with the actual SCOTUS this goal can be achieved:
not one of the actual Justices is a WASP ! All Catholics and Jews ! Even Orlana Taitz, the Jewish Queen of the Birthers, does complain about this.
Look at the people on the forefront of the Birther Cause: most are Italians like Apuzzo and Arpaio or Jews like Klayman. Farah from WND is Lebanese, just like Issa !
And look at Jerome Corsi. He is a mixture of all the bloods of the mediterranean coasts. Even BHO looks more like a (suntanned) Anglo-Saxon warrior than this sad example of the human race.
Who thinks that with these people our goal - only WASPs for POTUS - can be achieved? They will only destroy the cause. Maybe that is THEIR secret goal.
There is little hope. Help us God.
July 9, 2012 1:25 AM"
So let's see. In one single post, "ProudWASP" attacks Catholics, Jews, people of Mediterranean decent, and Italians, not to mention Dr. Orly, the Supreme Court, Jerome Corsi, Joseph Farah, Joe Arpaio, Mario Apuzzo, and Larry Klayman.
"ProudWASP said…[Reply] So what will we do, my Christian brethren. No one here will vote for BHO. Will we vote for the man who -as a Mormon - isn´t even a Christian ? Who believes that the book Mormon is superior to the Holy Bible ?
God help us.
July 9, 2012 9:09 AM"
Oh, and Mormons too.
Birthers eating their own. How charming.
9 July - Dr. Orly has been so busy committing legal malpractice that she seems to have overlooked something…
And that definition?
I guess she's so busy with her jihad against the president she doesn't have time for little fiddly details like getting fingerprinted….
9 July - Larry Klayman loses another case.
"A Washington, D.C. judge has ordered an anti-LGBT preacher to pay MSNBC host Rachel Maddow’s attorney’s fees after he filed a $50 million lawsuit for allegedly defaming him.
Over the weekend, the blog Bradlee Dean Info first reported that Dean and his You Can Run International ministry had 30 days to pay $24,625.23."
Let's see. Klayman has so far in the last few months lost this case, the WND Esquire case, and his Florida Birther Ballot jihad case. Not an impressive track record.
9 July - The Southern Poverty Law Center takes note of Joseph Farah's increasing paranoia.
“This is a game of control for them,” Farah told Jones. “We have to resist all attempts to control us, whether they’re telling us our kids have to have these mandatory vaccines, or they tell us in order to get on an airplane you’ve got to be groped. This is where the resistance starts, because this is part of conditioning for what is really the endgame for them, which is, you know, we’re all going to be global citizens, we don’t have any say in our government and so forth. It’s everything our Founding Fathers fought against, and we’ve got to be like our Founding Fathers all over again, and the only question in my mind is whether we have the fearlessness, and the courage and the conviction that they had to do that.”
He continued, “If [Obama is] re-elected, it’s gonna be war. We will be at war. We will be hunted down like dogs, Alex Jones, just keep that in mind. That’s what the stakes are.”
9 July - Oh look. Larry Klayman is on video talking about his planned anti-Supreme Court Fantasy Tiddlywinks League.
9 July - Birther Report gets annoyed that President Obama got all "uppity" and demanded that Mitt Romney release his tax records.
Hmmm. They usually don't mind people demanding any and all records from Obama. Wonder what the difference could POSSIBILY be? (well, other than the fact that Romney is white and a Republican that is…..)
"Anonymous said…[Reply] Romney will Release his Records when that Worthless Liberal piece of Black Trash releases his Records all of them…… July 9, 2012 7:21 PM"
And we have open racism right out of the gate!
"Kanbun said…[Reply] This could certainly qualify for either the funniest, or more probably the most arrogant thing this low-life has done yet….
I think the word you're looking for is "uppity".
"AuntieMadder said…[Reply] Is it fair to dog Romney for not blowing Kenya Boy out of the water already when he's not yet officially the Republican nominee and GOP candidate for POTUS? Can he legally campaign before his nomination is officially announced at the convention? If campaigning before then isn't illegal, could doing so still be used as ammunition against him by his opposition, something like, "Romney's so full of himself that he began campaigning against the Dem incumbent before the GOP had a chance to make their choice. Bloated sense of entitlement of the mega-wealthy, perhaps?"
In short, if Romney were to destroy Kenya Boy's campaign before being officially nominated, would that be a case of premature eradication?
July 10, 2012 11:16 AM"
And then we have the death threats.
"thinkwell said…[Reply] This is SO hypocritical. Romney is just a flip-flopping wimp, not a criminally compulsive lying, America-hating fraud like obummer (or whatever his real name is). Also, Romney is a committed, monogamous family man, unlike our semi-gay, blow-job seeking, bisexual putative pResident fraud zero bona-fides faker, obummer /soetoro /dunham (or whatever his real name is). This guy is a traitor to our country (or, if not even a citizen, a spy) and deserves to do some real hard time for his crimes (personally, I would suggest a sentence of 5 to 10 years in the electric chair, but that's just me).

10 July - Meanwhile. George Miller at Obama Ballot Challenge pimps Klayman's planned Fantasy Tiddlywinks League.
"Seems like a long shot, but nothing else has worked so far. Larry Klayman was counsel in the the Voeltz v Obama Florida Ballot Challenge"
"He is also turning to citizens’ grand juries, which he says may be the last peaceful means to help restore rule of law."
Oooh, rather threaty.
"To Win in Court, Change the Court!"
Finding some judges willing to ignore the law and the Constitution may be a bit tricky.
10 July - The birther scorecard is updated.

Currently the stats are:
Birther cases won - 0
Birther cases lost - 137
Birther cases pending - 9
10 July - Back on 21 October 2008, I wrote an article about claims that then-Sen. Obama was using "Mass Hypnosis" to get people to support him.
Well, everything old is still dumb again, as the Western Center for "Journalism" dusts off Yet Another Tired Old Myth.
So far, both parts (there's a part three on the way) are pretty much literal word for word reprints of the October 2008 article. Written by one "anonymous".
If the "Anonymous" who wrote the WCJ articles isn't the original author (The PDF only says "Daniel"), then they're plagiarizing.
And if is the author, the WCJ is recycling.
10 July - Dr. Kate continues her swim in Lake Delusion.
"We believe we live in a Constitutional Republic; how much more do we need to have happen to know that that Republic has been overthrown? We believe we may have been responsible in large part for the fall of our Republic. When will we know it and repent for this great loss? We know that Obama is ineligible for the presidency; Congress, the media, and the boots only believe he is eligible.
In matters of the spirit, of faith and the spiritual, there are many who say they are believers. But do you really know? The Disciples were believers, but had continuous doubt, until they saw Jesus risen from the dead in Galilee. They all died as martyrs as his witnesses on earth. And then there are examples , like the Centurion, of belief and faith so great that it led to knowing Jesus’ grace and mercy would be shown upon asking.
It has been said many times that America would not know how far adrift our Nation has become until there was some great economic collapse, something so dreadful that it would force coming face to face with that truth, with ourselves, and with the role we have played in bringing us to this point. It is our rebellious nature that has caused us to layer ourselves with every possible excuse and to keep away the inevitable as life and events unfold as we were told… while we continue being busy making other plans."
Her raging hatred of President Obama and her conspiracy delusion has become her religion.
"In the journey that has been this blog thus far, all the historical research and learning has done is to now show me how much unlearning was necessary to develop my present awareness and understanding. As I lamented but could not believe the losses suffered I searched for the truth and a thread of that truth led directly to me. My responsibility, reflecting over actions and reactions, paths directed seemingly for this moment now. Facing the very worst of those fears, when the final illusion acting as a reprieve is gone, I become a knower.
The personal, moral, political, spiritual worldly revolution of all time is underway.
Even so, come, Lord Jesus."
Somehow I don't think the voices she heard was from the source she thinks they were from.
Meanwhile, "No-nonsense-Nancy" is her usual joyous self.
"no-nonsense-nancy July 11, 2012 at 7:15 am Kate, I am so thankful for you and what you do for us here, as well as all of the readers and their terrific info that they share. i am so much more knowledgable than I was a few years ago and I am thankful. Educating others isn’t easy, as they are so doubtful of what I have to say. People, even so called conservatives just are too trusting in this government and the lame stream media. the other day I mentioned something about the health care bill to a young man who was doing some work in my house and he stated that he doesn’t get involved at all in politics. These people are soon going to be forced to pay attention to politics when the boots hit the ground and they find themselves in martial law unless we are able to prevent it. The total brainwashing of this nation astounds me more every day.I hope and pray that we can overcome this great evil hat has overtaken our republic. I fear that it may take several generations to get us to the point of where our founding fathers and mothers envisioned for us. I am not sure we were ever really there because the evil ones started to try to destroy the republic as soon as it was established. Jelousy and desire for power and total control I think are the root causes of it.

ARREST THE CRIMINALS!!!
"no-nonsense-nancy July 11, 2012 at 10:41 am In my opinion, only those of us who really know what has been going on in our country and who are aware of the implications of what this administration has done and is doing every day to destroy us, should even go to the poles and vote!!!

North or South pole??
10 July - Here's a charming article over at the Birther-friendly Canada Free Press.
"Ignore the thousand-a-day conspiracies coming at you over the Internet. Worry only about what’s real. Obama has already captured and is going to assassinate your country. "
So ignore all the internet conspiracies - except the ones the author personally believes in. Ooookay…
"We the People have to coalesce and start somewhere and Obama is that starting point. Should Romney get himself elected and head down the One World Government avenue, Mittens will figuratively find himself hanging from the tree branch arms of all the DC snowmen come the first January after election."
Oh look. Conspiracy theories AND a death threat, all in one!
"Occupy Obama! comes with the best end goal of them all. The total fundamental Transformation of the latest world dictator by voting him out of office and watching him flee, like a scalded cat, the country he loves to hate.
And in this case the ends truly will justify the means."
10 July - So what is Larry Klayman's solution to losing Yet Another Case?? Demand the judge recuse herself for being a big ol' mean poopiehead.
"In the notice filed on Monday, Dean’s lawyer, Larry Klayman — founder of Freedom Watch — claims that Zeldon showed bias and favoritism toward the defendants in the case. Klayman alleges that Zeldon made “snide and offensive comments” against him after he was unable to travel from Los Angeles to Washington, D.C. to appear in court. “Judge Zeldon mocked and ridiculed Plaintiffs and their counsel while, to the contrary, Judge Zeldon referred to Defendants’ counsel approvingly as ‘distinguished,’ stating in effect that Plaintiffs and their counsel are not.”
Dean, in the notice, goes so far as to say Judge Zeldon’s “bias” is evident in her “acting like a ‘woman scorned.’”
“This case will be tried in federal court, and Maddow and MSNBC will be held responsible for their hateful and malicious reporting,” Dean concludes in his statement."
The Scribd link to the filing is here. In a nutshell, Klayman and Dean are upset because:
1) The judge dismissed the case and ruled that Dean and Klayman should pay attorney costs.
2) That the defendants refused to allow their earlier recusal request.
3) Klayman is upset that the judge didn't call him "distinguished" too.
Wow. Klayman really needs some cheese with that whine. And he's really going "please oh please sanction my happy butt too!"
10 July - So one dark night in a smoky bar, the Fantasy Tiddlywinks League was drowning it's sorrows. Suddenly the sassy Cold Case posse sat down next to them. Shots were downed, the Cold Case posse hiked up it's skirt and licked it's lips seductively.
Shortly thereafter, there was short-lived drunken fumbling in the filthy bathroom in the back, followed by awkward looks, silence, and regret. Numbers were exchanged, promises to call were broken.
And nine months later, the Fantasy Tiddlywinks League gets a letter.
It's a bouncing baby Constitutional Oversight Posse.
"The COP will grow its membership until it has at least one million signed members who are eligible to vote in the United States. Membership will be contingent on members being in full agreement with the written mission, philosophy, and means of the COP. Any member misrepresenting the organization’s charter may be expelled from the organization.
Once the required membership level has been reached, the COP’s governing board will generate an initial list of violators: government officials who have violated or ignored the oath of office or who have participated in unconstitutional exercises of power. The board will then identify the representatives and senators who are legally responsible for initiating the impeachment and/or expulsion of the violators. The board will present to the identified officials an ultimatum and the list of violators who must be prosecuted. The ultimatum will set deadlines by which the prosecutorial duties must be performed. The ultimatum will inform the identified officials that failure to carry out these duties within the set time limits will render the identified officials subject to arrest for violation of their oaths of office, a high crime under the Constitution."
But don't worry, it's not like mob justice at all!
"No arrest will be conducted without the participation, at the site of the arrest, of at least ten-thousand members of the COP and the assent of at least a majority of the remaining members of the COP. No assault and no physical restraint may be used on the arrested official. No armaments may be illegally employed in the arrest. Any restraints on an arrested official’s mobility will be within the limitations of the first-amendment right to assemble and within the customary guidelines for citizen’s arrests of persons displaying criminal behavior."
Three guesses who's on the top of their little list:
"The first major action of the COP after the membership surpasses one million people…"
Which will be, I suspect, when Hades wins the Winter Olympics bid.
Seriously, considering how well birther rallies and the like have gone, this "one million mark" is like listening to someone tell you how they're going to win the Indy 500 while stalled out at the go-kart track.
"…will likely be the issuance of an ultimatum to the Speaker of the House warning him that he will be subject to arrest unless he initiates within one month the impeachment and/or other legal proceedings required to remove from office Attorney General Eric Holder and President Barack Obama in a manner that will result, to the maximal extent, in the negation of the unconstitutional actions they have taken while in office. The COP will then use its threat of arrest to hand-hold each and every one of the representatives and senators through the most expeditious constitutionally-allowed process leading to expulsion of the accused."
Yeah, good luck with that, skippy.
Oh, and towards the bottom, they link to Walter Fitzpatrick's charges of "treason" against President Obama. Because nothing says "patriot" more the the rantings of a mentally ill ex-Navy officer who was court-martialed for misappropriation of funds and who has a history of domestic violence.
So who are the midwives who gave birth to this abomination?
Well, the president is one Edward B. Stoneham, who was one of many plaintiffs in "Shreeve v Obama", an Tennessee anti-ACA dismissed on 4 October 2010. The ever wonderful "Oh For Goodness Sakes" mentioned that he also made a threat in the wake of the Georgia Birther Ballot jihad.
(bold face mine)
"Yes, the risks are great for a judge. We just have to make sure that the risk of bowing to intimidation is greater than the risk of being intimidated. In other words, we have to assure the judges that they are more likely to lose their lives if they fail to carry out justice than if they cave in to threats from defendants. … we can likewise make it clear to Obama that Obama is more likely to lose his life if he or his gang threatens judges than if he refrains from interfering with justice."
Their vice-president is Marcia Wood, who seems to be popular in Tea Party groups and was a Terry Lakin supporter
Their treasurer is Deb Beatty, who I've found comments from at the Western Center for "Journalism"
And last but not least, their Recording Secretary is someone who's appeared in birtherstan before, one Kristy Lonestar, who penned whiney letters at the Pest and eFail accusing President Obama of treason and who came up with an online petition to the San Diego Grand Jury that, after one year, has 453 signatures.
10 July - Rudy Davies reviews Terry Lakin's book and all but dry-humps Lakin's leg.
Rudy is wrong. Since Lakin was dismissed from service, he's no longer "Lt. Col. Lakin". He lost the right to be called by his rank when he was dismissed.
Also, a while back, Rudy got kicked out of a Sarah Palin rally for being an asshat birther. And he seems to have been on the "jury" of James Manning's play trial a while back.
Rudy seems to have quite the crush on Terry Lakin. I wouldn't be surprised if some of the pages of Rudy's copy of Lakin's book are now stuck together.
You know, if Rudy wants to compare Lakin to a founding father, then I suspect Benedict Arnold is a better match.
11 July - Swiftboat liar Jerome Corsi joins the crowd recycling old birther lies. This time it's the INS reports on Barack Obama, Sr.
"Immigration documents filed in 1961 cast doubt on whether Barack Hussein Obama Sr. was the president’s biological father and indicate federal officers were prepared to investigate whether the Kenyan was married to the president’s mother, Ann Dunham."
Note that last line.
"The last paragraph indicates that if Dunham, as a “U.S. citizen wife,” were to petition for Obama Sr. to receive permanent residence status as an immigrant on track to citizenship, the INS should conduct an investigation to make sure the alleged marriage was legitimate."
Here's a shock to Corsi. The INS does this all the time when a US citizen is married to a foreign national. It's part of their job.
Leave it to World Nut Daily to turn "standard procedure" to some deep dark conspiracy.
"In the third sentence of the third paragraph, the Dahlin memo adds the detail that McCabe reported the Kenyan had gotten Dunham pregnant, a fact that would have been consistent with the marriage being legitimate.
Except, Dahlin adds, McCabe reported that the Kenyan and Dunham did not live together and Obama Sr. and Dunham were contemplating giving the baby away to the Salvation Army.
The facts suggest a sham marriage arranged for immigration purposes only: a supposedly married couple who do not live together, a “husband” with multiple girl friends on the side and a baby neither parent seems determined to raise."
Or, alternately, a couple who got married too fast, discovered they weren't a good match, and were trying to decide that would be best for themselves and the child that was on the way.
It's also interesting to note that Corsi uses the phrase "the Kenyan" no less than 16 times in the article to refer to Barack Obama, Sr. I wouldn't say there was some blatant race-baiting, racist dog whistles, and propagandizing going on here, but I really can't think of any other way to describe it.
Which, of course, World Nut Daily's readers will eat up with a spoon.
"Jugears "Lolo" Soetero Jr Deep cover, Anti ''BO BS'' tactical unit
I know this much, this agency never looks at what my family tree's been doing for 100 years, or yours, or yours or yours or yours…… this shiiite isn't all a coincidence.
Ultimately he Daddy Bammy was booted from Harvard and out of the country over these allegations and concerns about his womanizing and where his money was coming from.
That much is like father and son…the magic moolah part… notice his 'individual donors' are holding on to their money like they did the week leading up to Katrina, so we know they won't be reaching in their welfare/crack pot anytime soon for the O train this time around.. They ain't THAT attached to him!! lol
"texasfedupgramma I doubt Obama knows who his REAL father is……His mother probably didn't know either! No wonder he turned out to be such a mental train wreck. Everything about this guy is phony and a fantasy of his mind. Send this dirty Muslim fraud back to Kenya in Nov.
"World Net Daily" or "Stormfront"?? You decide.
11 July - KPHO-TV (A CBS affiliate in Phoenix, Arizona), does an investigation on Arizona Secretary of State (and Romney state co-chair) Ken Bennett.
And guess who it looks like was one of Bennett's biggest influences??
(Bold face mine)
"Documents released by the Arizona Secretary of State's Office indicate a barrage of emails from the Surprise tea party which prompted Ken Bennett to investigate the president's birth certificate.
But a CBS 5 investigation has found that the real driving force behind the move might have actually been a wealthy conspiracy theory peddler.
In the days and months before members of the Surprise tea party demanded Bennett investigate the legitimacy of President Obama's birth certificate, two authors who contribute to conspiracy theory websites gave presentations to the organization."
Hmmm….. Who do we know who hangs around the Surprise Tea Party??
"Both websites were started by Joseph Farah, a former newspaper editor. Farah is a leading voice in conservative media, questioning the citizenship of the president. A review of editorials Farah has written show he has also pushed theories that Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh had ties to a Middle Eastern terrorist group and that TWA Flight 800 was brought down by missiles and that the U.S. government covered it up."
Why yes, yes it's Joseph Farah!! And not only Joey….
"Author Tom Ballantyne, a contributor to Farah's Western Center for Journalism website, spoke to the Surprise tea party in April, and admits he mobilized the members to prompt Bennett to act.
"All of the polls that I've seen show that more than half the people in the country still don't know where (Obama) was born. And that's just a simple fact. He hasn't proven it," Ballantyne said."
It's starting to look like the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office isn't the only Arizona subsidiary of World Nut Daily.
"He is pandering to a very small fringe group of people and he's really putting their interests in front of the interests of the state of Arizona," said Rep. Chad Campbell, the leader of the Democrats in the state House, and a critic of Bennett.
Campbell said that despite the fact Bennett backed off of his demands to Hawaiian officials, he still sees a problem with the secretary of state's actions. Bennett is also Mitt Romney's Arizona campaign chairman, which Campbell argues is a conflict of interest."
Gee, you think??
"Statewide elected officials like Bennett are allowed to engage in political activity, so long as they do not use taxpayer resources. But Bennett did use his office and at least one staffer in the birther probe."
Sounds like a conflict of interest to me.
"A spokesperson from the Arizona Attorney General's Office said Bennett did not request a legal opinion on the issue, which is something state officials are encouraged to do when engaging in activity that could bring up the appearance of a conflict."
"CBS 5 News sent the following email to Bennett's office last week, but did not receive a request:
I do have some questions that I don't think the secretary of state has addressed, and which I do think he should have the opportunity to address, including, but not limited to:
*Whether he knew Tom Ballantyne and Jerome Corsi were employees of and/or contributors to publications owned by Joseph Farrah.
*Whether he knew that Ballantyne and Corsi had mobilized the Surprise Tea Party to email demands that Bennett investigate the president's birth certificate
*Whether he thinks he was manipulated by Farrah and his followers to take state action on the issue.
*Whether he sought out guidance from the attorney general or solicitor general on the issue, being that he was a campaign chair for Obama's opponent, Mitt Romney
*And specifically, whether he sought guidance from the above legal experts on whether it was appropriate or legal for him to direct staff to use official state resources to investigate the president's birth certificate, again, given the fact that Bennett was/is on the Romney campaign team
*Has Mr. Bennett been informed by any investigating agency that his actions in the above-mentioned situation are under investigation or review?"
I'm going to hazard a guess and say the answers are yes, yes, yes, no, no, and no.
"Critics such as Campbell argue that whether Bennett is working on behalf of a conspiracy theory peddler or the Romney Campaign, his actions in this issue did not benefit the citizens of Arizona.
"The fact that Mr. Bennett did listen to these people. The fact that he pandered to these people, should plant a question in every voter's mind about whether or not Ken Bennett is actually doing his job," said Campbell."
Oh, he's doing his job. As Romney's campaign co-chair. As Secretary of State, not so much.
11 July - Leave it to World Nut Daily to spin the loss of their pet attorney and writer, Larry Klayman
"Klayman, the founder of Judicial Watch and now of Freedom Watch, affirmed his filings were in good faith.
“This case is filed as a matter of principle,” he said. “We need more Bradlee Deans in the world and hateful left wing television commentators must be made to respect not only his mission but the law.”"
Respect must be earned, not forced. Klayman's attitude is the same as someone trying to defend the actions of a bully.
11 July - Here's a 19 March 2012 video from James Manning.
(0:57)"You can train a Black man to be a physician, you can train him to be an astrophysicist, you can train him to be a lawyer -- but you can't train him to understand the world. He doesn't know. I'm telling you. There's not two cents worth of difference between a mass murderer, there's not two cents of difference between a petty thief that's locked away in prison, than a black doctor when it comes to understanding the world."
(2:23)"The worst thing that happened to South Africa was when they gave it to Nelson Mandela and black folk. That was a great nation."
(2:57)"Black folk don't know how to run no nation. They don't know how, and we need to admit it. I know you don't like it, but you need to stop shucking and jiving."
(4:00):"There's something wrong with the black man's mind, there's something wrong with his mind. He does not understand the world. He doesn't. I don't care if he learns medicine. He can't even hang on to Harlem, when he was here, he moved out."
(4:43)"What's wrong with all you black women, voting for Barack? Don't you understand, it should have been a black womb if you're going to have a black president. What's wrong with you? You all don't have no sense, you black women."
(5:05)"These black women, buying these black men private jets, for $250 million dollars for some n**ger to ride around in a private jet."
(5:17)"And what's wrong with a black man that would take that kind of money out of a poor neighborhood and buy himself a private jet, what's wrong with you all n**gers, what's wrong with you? What's wrong with you black women voting for Barack Obama, what's wrong with you? What's wrong with you chall? You n**gers are crazy."
"(5:45)We're not going to get anywhere until we look into the mind of a black man. He doesn't think correctly. I don't care what he is, he could be a doctor, he could be an astrophysicist, the n**ger ain't got no sense."
(6:06)"The most the black people have done, they did it here in America under white people's help! When they were in Africa, they didn't do nothin'!!"
I can see why James Manning is so popular with the birthers. His self-hatred and loathing dovetails nicely with many of their same beliefs.
What I can't understand is why anyone of color would attend his church unless they hated themselves as much as James Manning hates himself.
11 July - I missed this 22 June 2012 article by Lawrence Sellin in Pravda OnLine.
So what patriotic wisdom does Sellin (who lives in Finland) want to share so badly that he writes for a Russian website??
"Many of those presently in the federal government have violated their oaths of office to support and defend the Constitution, they have obstructed justice and they have scorned and rejected citizens' attempts to petition for the redress of grievances.
Democrat and Republican elected officials continue to block any objective investigation of Barack Obama's personal history because it would reveal dereliction of duty by most and criminal conspiracy by many.
The politicians recognize that if the truth was told about the depth of the corruption and the extent of the criminality in the government, the American people would rise up in open rebellion against those who have undermined the Constitution and flouted the rule of law."
Ah, so he's encouraging an open rebellion here in the United States again.
"Between now and Election Day on November 6, 2012, there is a window of opportunity to stop the coup d'état…."
The only people who think there's been a coup d'état are the ones CALLING for a coup d'état!!
"The battle line of the Second American Revolution has been drawn: expose Obama and the entire corrupt system protecting him will also be exposed.
The time for education and persuasion is over. The time for resistance has come."
The sign of a true patriot - someone who calls for the overthrow of a democratically-elected government from the safety of his home outside of said country.
Maybe we should call him Lawrence "Sedition" Sellin.
11 July - And in Arizona, Van Irion and John Dummett (pronounced "doo-FUS"), hear the word familiar to all birthers.
(Scribd link here)
Alas, no sanctions.
"Defendants do not argue that Plaintiffs have unreasonably and vexatiously “multiplied” proceedings by filing two amended complaints in this case, nor do they argue that Plaintiffs have filed any unwarranted motions. While Defendants state that Plaintiffs “instituted parallel proceedings in Tennessee,” they do not make any argument that this constitutes vexatious and unreasonable multiplication of proceedings or that section 1927 was intended to sanction conduct occurring in different cases. (See Mot. for Sanctions at 3); see also Jensen v. Phillips Screw Co., 546 F.3d 59, 65 (1st Cir. 2008) (“Congress’s use of the verb ‘multipl[y]’ in the text of the statute clearly contemplates that, to be sanctionable thereunder, conduct must have an effect on an already initiated proceeding.”). The Court concludes that Defendants have not demonstrated that Plaintiffs vexatiously and unreasonably multiplied proceedings in this case and therefore declines to impose sanctions under section 1927."
A warning though
"Given that Rule 11 allows claims that are “warranted by existing law or by a non frivolous argument for extending, modifying, or reversing existing law,” and that many of the cases rejecting Plaintiffs’ specific theory had not been decided at the time of Plaintiffs’ Complaint, the Court declines to impose Rule 11 sanctions in this case, but hereby warns Mr. Irion that knowingly continuing to bring claims that have previously been dismissed may warrant sanctions in the future. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 11(b)(2)."
"The Court concludes that Plaintiffs have not met their burden of establishing this Court has personal jurisdiction over Defendants the DNC and Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz and therefore dismisses this case. The Court also finds that Defendants have not demonstrated that sanctions against Plaintiff’s attorney are warranted in this case and therefore denies Defendants’ Motion for Sanctions. The Court therefore denies as moot Plaintiffs’ Motion to File Supplemental Response (Doc. 35).
IT IS ORDERED granting Defendants the DNC and Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz’s Motion to Dismiss (Doc. 24).
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED denying Defendants the DNC and Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz’s Motion for Sanctions (Doc. 28).
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED denying as moot Plaintiff’s Motion to File Supplemental Response (Doc. 35).
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED directing the Clerk to enter judgment accordingly"
I suspect not getting sanctioned is has close to a victory as Van Irion can get.
11 July - Some Lame Cherry nuggets.
"This is vital to comprehend as it is thee only Way, the only Truth and thee only means to preserve the Life of America, so apostate Mormon Romney had better listen up or he will no doubt if he steals back the 1600 Penn Avenue address, due to Obama dismantlement and destructive policies face either being hung by Latino Marxist invaders or suck too long a hot nuclear warhead from the Eurasians hoarding for Obama's World War IV.
America is dead. The Republic is a corpse as when Caesar crossed the Rubicon. In that Barry Chin AKA Barack Hussein Obama Osseiran, accomplished thee worst ass backwards coup in history in while effectively creating the Obama Super Depression by strangling the George W. Bush 2009 recovery to steal the power of money from American Citizens to turn them into feudal serfs, his glaring mistake is thee one which only this blog knows."
"Tea Party hating ilk in Congress are real Americans or pure traitors, in the GOP who squat assassinated Sarah Palin by defacto Obama blasting of Gabrielle Giffords, have one chance and America has one chance, and that is for Congress to in super majority elected by the people, pass immediately on January 20th, 2013 a bill to expand the Supreme Court to 12 members immediately and have a President Romney sign it into law, followed by the immediate appointment in midnight session of 3 Justices who are real Conservatives or as close as money can buy.
Simply put, I would suggest 3 hatchet men in Michael Savage, Mark Levin and Michael Reagan, to literally undo Barack Obama to Franklin Roosevelt over the next months in fast tracked hearings on Justice Department posted cases challenging all unConstitutional Laws from the Federal Reserve to the 1968 Gun Control to the 2009 Obamacare revisited to strike down all Obama laws."
Or this one:
"CNN, you suck. Not as bad as FOX, but you suck in you have nothing that appeals to Americans, so here is what I will do in saving your sucky network.
First fire that whole bunch of suckass weasels you got working there, and hire some foreigners.
Try that French chic who works for the Lame Cherry News Network, as she likes getting naked with that gay boy she rats around with and start from there.
Hire that former half naked Keiran Chetry or whatever her name was. A real go getter until Uncle Roger canned her……maybe she works for you, but the point is, get her skirt hiked up and let her do what she does best in thigh talking.
Then there is that Karin Gionnoni or something from the BBC. From South Africa….and some Benny Hill looking strawberry blonde with that English cold fish appeal with big knockers. No one listens to the news, so just have a bunch of News Teases on, and have them read things.
Next, get in a bunch of bloggers, like Lame Cherry, and just have Presenters read the frisking blogs as that is all that matters now in nothing else matters. Kick in Micki Malkin as she can write, is a happy person and again is a chic with looks."
Funny how Dr. Kate loves her some Lame Cherry, considering how sexist he/she/it is.
And then there's:
"I was wondering where Barack Obama pulled the rabbit teeth out or if it is just a fetish when he says two women who might start a butch sex act in the Mrs. Cameron and M.R. Obama.
Pictures tell a great deal about what is going on in people, like Muchelle has so much bling on to compensate for being a Nigress or it is her new bondage belt slap at the slave runner Brits……..but then Mrs. C. is amusing in wearing this devil awful dress pattern which reminds one of the African upholstery the Oprah Winfrey types parade around in when they are feeling Negroid."
"If your dick is small, then get a big bank account and not a big gun or engine. If your tits are small like your bank account, but you have a big pussy, get some big tits as that will help you catch a big bank account with a small dick.
Sinners hide in pews, cowards behind badges and tyrants behind elections.
The last thing you would change about you is most likely the first thing everyone would change about you.
Putting a kid who runs like a duck into the Oval Office just gets you a duck runner in the Oval Office."
"Given the choice between eating your pet dog or an Obama voter, I wonder how many people would choose to starve.
Being a little apostate is like being a little Romney."
"Next war humanity has, let us line up the Rothschilds in the front to lead the charge, and then we shall see if the war starts or peace breaks out."
"The one mistake in life I have made is being perfect.
I don't think there's enough anti-psychotics on the planet to help Lame Cherry.
