In today's dispatches, updates in the resurrection of Keyes/Barnett v Obama. Gordon Epperly whines when his case is dismissed. MoveOn needs to hire a plane banner with a grammar check.
Romney surrogate and tribble mobility scooter Donald Trump ratchets up the birther blather. Birther Reports shows how immature and shallow they really are. Jack Cashill wants Mitt Romney to do full metal birther in the debates.
Details are released about a plot with active-duty Army enlisted to assassinate the President. With a ringleader who may have had another job at in 2008. Chris Matthews notes the "foreigner" rhetoric of the GOP. The DoJ is going to monitor election results in Maricopa county.
Tracy Fair gets a decision in her birther ballot jihad case (hint, "WHOMP WHOMP WHOMP!") Jerome Corsi gets annoyed that the Obama campaign is once again poking fun at the birthers. And Rush Limbaugh seems to think the Obama campaign can control the weather...
24 August - Judge Carter cancels the hearing in Dr. Orly's attempt to resurrect the shambling corpse of Keyes/Barnett v Obama.

Accordingly, the hearing set for September 10, 2012, at 8:30 a.m. is removed from the
calendar. Parties will be served with the Court’s ruling.
The Clerk shall serve a copy of this minute order on counsel for all parties in this action."
24 August - The US District Court in Alaska dismisses Gordon Epperly's case with prejudice.
(Scribd link here)
"In conducting a review of the pleadings of a self-represented plaintiff, the court is mindful that it must liberally construe the pleadings and give the plaintiff the benefit of the doubt.12 Before the court may dismiss Mr. Epperly’s case, the court must provide him with a statement of the deficiencies in the complaint and an opportunity to amend, unless it is clear that amendment would be futile.13 In this case, amendment would be futile. Mr. Epperly's claims are implausible and frivolous.14 This court will, therefore, dismiss this case.15
Therefore, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED:
1. This case is DISMISSED with prejudice;16
2. All outstanding motions are DENIED as moot; and
3. The Clerk of Court will enter a Judgment in this case.
Dated at Anchorage, Alaska this 24th day of August, 2012."
24 August - Needless to say, Gordon Epperly is a bit annoyed.
(Scribd link here)
"The Petitioner (Gordon Warren Epperly) of the above entitled proceeding that was filed with the Alaska Superior Court at Juneau, Alaska does hereby gives "Notice" to all that a "Judicial Misconduct Complaint" will be filed with the U.S. Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit under Judicial Conduct and Disability Act, 28 U.S.C. §§ 351-364 if Judge Timothy M. Burgess continues to refuse to issue a sua sponge "Order" to move the above named proceeding back into the Alaska Superior Court at Juneau, Alaska for want of subject matter and in propria persona jurisdiction. Said misconduct trespasses upon the sovereign authority of a State (Alaska) to determine the qualifications of Office of Presidential Candidates and my "Rights" to be a "Complainant" of an Administrative Complaint that is before the Alaska Division of Elections. With such misconduct, the Judge of this U.S. District Court abuses his Office for the purpose of obstructing U.S. Presidential Ballot Elections of the State of Alaska and other States of the Union."
In other words, "Wahhh! The judge told me no! Wahhhh!"
"The Constitutional authority for a Woman to represent the United States as U.S. Attorney was brought into question with no opposition made to such Allegations. As Karen L. Loeffler has admitted by her silence that she has no U.S. Constitutional authority to hold the Office of U.S. Attorney, she had no authority to move the "Proceedings" of Petitioner, Gordon Warren Epperly, from the Superior Court for the State of Alaska into the U.S. District Court for the District of Alaska."
Translation - "I'm not gonna let some dame tell me what to do, and I'm going to ignore anything from her office!"
25 August - MoveOn.org hires a plane to fly a banner over a Romney rally. Pity the company who made the banner didn't bother to check spelling, as it said "America is Better Then Birtherism" rather than the more gramatically-correct "America is Better THAN Birtherism.
And just to underscore that the birtherstani have no real case to base their claims on, they go apedump over a grammar error.
Word is that Obama wrote the sign himself. No wonder he refuses to show us his Harvard grades.
Now we know why he paid Bill Ayers the $40,000 deposit to write his "autobio" book, "Dreams…..".
August 25, 2012 10:05 PM "
It should have read: "America is better with Birtherism!" or "America is better than Kenya!" or "America Does Need A Birther-In-Chief!" or "America needs an American President" or "Birtherism is the Answer!" or "Obama! Who the hell are you?" or "Obama! Who forged your birth certificate?" etc.
August 25, 2012 11:43 PM"
But, but liberals are always so insistent that they're so much smarter and more enlightened than everyone else. It must be Bush's fault!
August 25, 2012 11:44 PM "
OOOh, da baws men a comin' weed bedda chech oz spellin mmm?

You know, considering the often creative uses of spelling and grammar that is a daily course at the birther blogs, I would say this is a prime case of screaming hypocrisy. Except that the birthers are already way past screaming hypocrisy and all the way to flat out "froth at the mouth hypocritical screaming".
25 August - World Nut Daily also likes to harumph about grammar.
"If Barack Obama carries the key swing state of Ohio in November, it won’t be because he and his supporters know how to spell.
Today, at a Republican rally in Powell, Ohio, an airplane pulling a banner attempted to capitalize on Mitt Romney’s “joke” yesterday in Michigan about not needing to show his birth certificate. The Democrats have responded by accusing Romney of having joined the “birthers,” and the airplane banner continued that theme.
Unfortunately, the supporters who sponsored the banner – MoveOn.org, as reported by a Los Angeles Times reporter onsite – failed to do a spell-check before take-off.
“AMERICA IS BETTER THEN BIRTHERISM,” it read, incorrectly substituting “then” for “than”."
You know, maybe World Nut Daily should take a long look at the spelling and grammar in many Tea Party signs before complaining about anyone else's work.
26 August - Tribble Mobility Scooter and Romney surrogate Donald Trump amps up the birther blather.
"Mr. Trump said that more will come out about the legitimacy of Mr. Obama's birth in the weeks and months leading up to the election. The Constitution says that only native-born Americans can be president. Mr. Trump cited polls showing that, "A tremendous amount of people believe there is certainly a validity to it."
The billionaire businessman and his wife Melania were on the west coast of Florida to receive the "Statesman of the Year" award from the Sarasota Republican Party. Mr. Trump was slated to have a large role in the Republican National Committee convention in Tampa on Monday night, but it was cancelled along with the rest of the official events due to hurricane Isaac."
26 August - Wow. The birthers are really scraping the bottom of the barrel. They''re now down to personal insults and name-calling rather than constructive debate and dialog.
"State Of The Fridge: CNN's Candy 'Porky' Crowley & RNC Chair On Romney Birth Certificate Joke - VIDEO HERE.
Yo, Porky Crowley, put the slab of ribs down and have a look at this, this, and this! Legitimate my arse!"
Oh, right. They've always been down to that level. My bad.
Comments are about what you expect.

Ol' Prince Beavis, RNC Chair, didn't handle that as well as most others who've so far been asked about it. The others said, and I paraphrase, "Romney was kidding around. He's said many times that he believes President Fucktard McFlopears was born in Hawaii. Lighten up, already."
As for Crowley, she looks like hell. It's not just the fat, either. She doesn't look at all polished or professional. She needs a makeover - makeup, hair, wardrobe, everything.

Crowley is a perfect metaphor for the entire regime-stream media - one big ugly tub of libtard with not an ounce of interest in the pursuit of truth (regardless of where it may lead). They are all so bloated with their own disingenuousness that their only hope is to go on an immediate crash diet and shed at least one or two thousand libs. [badda-bing] :D
August 26, 2012 9:27 PM "
Oh cute. A fat joke AND a death threat, all in one!
27 August - At the American Stinker, Jack Cashill is all but demanding Romney go full metal birther at the debates.
"Although some on the right were disappointed that Romney did not pursue this, he was wise not to. This was not the right time. The right time is during a debate. At least one moderator will find Romney's bait irresistible, and I am guessing it will be CNN's Candy Crowley. What follows is a proposed strategy for the Hofstra University debate on October 16. My guess is that Romney has pretty much figured it out already, thus the remark in Michigan:"
He then comes up with a birther wet dream script that repeats all the debunked lies, from infancy in the State of Washington all the way up Pakistani travel myths.
27 August - Birther Report loves them some Jack Cashill.
From Jack Cashill's keyboard to Mitt Romney's ears. Please God. Make it be so.

27 August - Oh crap.
"Four US soldiers plotted to assassinate Barack Obama and overthrow the government, a court has heard.
Prosecutors in Georgia said they formed an anarchist militia within the military.
One, private Michael Burnett, has pleaded guilty to manslaughter and gang charges in the killings last December of former soldier Michael Roark and his girlfriend, 17-year-old Tiffany York.
Burnett said that Roark, who had just left the army, knew of the militia group's plans and was killed because he was "a loose end."
Prosecutor Isabel Pauley said the group bought 87,000 dollars (£55,000) of guns and bomb-making materials and plotted to take over Fort Stewart, bomb targets in Savannah and Washington state, as well as assassinate the president."
I suspect they weren't "anarchist" has much as SovCits and "Oathkeepers".
Maybe Dr. Orly can act as their defense attorney. It's not like she hasn't encouraged active-duty military to stage a military coup before….
27 August - Tribble mobility scooter and Romney surrogate Donald Trump chimes in on Romney's tip-toe into the waters of Lake Birtherstan.
"He did make a joke, and some people thought it might not be a joke. It happens to be an issue that a lot of people believe in," Trump said, referring to the idea that Obama was born outside the United States. "Many, many people believe in it, so maybe I would have handled it differently, but (Romney's) running for president, and I'm with him 100 percent."
And why do people believe it? Because some people would rather believe lies and non-credible claims than reality.
"Trump told reporters before the event that he was planning to return to New York on Sunday night, but that what happened to his RNC involvement was "totally up to" convention organizers.
"Well, I had a big role tomorrow night. You know what happened tomorrow night. So it's now up to them. … It's totally up to them, whatever they like," he said. "They gave me a big role and I was looking forward — I was actually going to Tampa right after this, right after this dinner, but now I probably will be going back to New York."
Asked to elaborate on what the "big surprise" was supposed to be, Trump just said it was a "very big thing."
27 August - On the network formerly known as MSNBC, Chris Matthews notes to RNC chair Reince Priebus that their rhetoric towards President Obama has been remarkably consistent - in hinting if not downright claiming that President Obama isn't really an American.
" PRIEBUS: But I think Obama’s policies have created a sense that for whatever reason, he’s looking to guidance [from Europe] as far as health care is concerned, as far as our spending is concerned …
MATTHEWS: What? Where do you get this from? This is insane! You mean the Keynesian fiscal policy — you mean the fact that every president we’ve had has tried to offset the economic cycle with stimulus going the other direction is somehow European? … What’s this got to do with Europe and this foreignization of the guy? You’re doing it now! Saying he’s influenced by foreign influences? You’re playing that card again. What’s this European thing of yours? What are you up to with this constant that he’s not really domestic?
PRIEBUS: You don’t think the take-over of our health care system called Obamacare is a problem for most Americans?
MATTHEWS: Let me tell you some history, sir. Teddy Roosevelt, Franklin Roosevelt pushed for that, Truman pushed for that, were they all under the influence of Europe? Where do you get this from?
PRIEBUS: I’m not going to get into a shouting match with Chris, so you guys can just move on.
MATTHEWS: Because you’re losing, that’s why. "
27 August - The Department of Justice is sending election monitors to Maricopa County.
"The U.S. Justice Department has announced that it will monitor primary elections in Arizona’s Maricopa County.
The department said Monday that federal observers will be dispatched Tuesday to make sure that Maricopa County follows the federal Voting Rights Act of 1965. That law prohibits discrimination in the election process on the basis of race, color or membership in a minority language group.
Observers will watch and record activities during voting hours at polling locations.
Maricopa County officials, especially Sheriff Joe Arpaio, have come under fire for the treatment of Latino residents."
27 August - Remember how Tracy Fair aka "ObamAcornKenyaBorn" claimed she "schooled the judge" on Constitutional manners in regards to her Maryland Bither Ballot Jihad?
Well, the judge shows the results of that schooling:
"Doc No./Seq No.: 32/0 File Date: 08/27/2012 Close Date:08/27/2012Decision: Document Name: Opinion: See 8/27/12 Final Judgment Copies to Darsie, Obama, Miltenberger, and Fair

To quote Tracy, "WHOMP WHOMP WHOMP!"
27 August - Tribble Mobility Scooter is REALLY pounding the birtherstani tribal drums, based on his twitter feed.
"Donald J. Trump
Why do the Republicans keep apologizing on the so called "birther" issue? No more apologies--take the offensive!
"Donald J. Trump
.@BarackObama is petrified of the birther issue so they go on the offensive to try & make the Republicans feel guilty & stupid. Watch what's coming!
"Donald J. Trump
While @MittRomney only made a joke last Friday, he touched on an issue that is very serious to millions of Americans.
"Donald J. Trump
.@Reince Priebus is doing a great job--fantastic guy. But no more birther apologies.
"Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump
One point I made last night and will continue to push is that the @GOP can't be politically correct. We must fight fire with fire.
27 August - It's rather funny that World Nut Daily and Jerome Corsi can try to bilk the birtherstani faithful out of their money, but they get ALL bent out of shape when the Obama campaign uses their birther blather as a fundraising tool.
"The campaign now has struck a lighter tone, with the “Made in the USA” button on sale at the BarackObama.com website with the following message:
“There’s really no way to make the conspiracy about President Obama’s birth certificate completely go away, so we might as well laugh at it – and make sure as many people as possible are in on the joke. Get your Obama birth certificate Made in the USA button today.”"
And you know the racist and bigoted graphics at the birther blog "nobama08"?? Well, Corsi thinks it's just fine to show their version of said button.
"Shortly after the Obama campaign button was introduced, a “Made in Africa” satirical lookalike appeared."
Corsi is also upset that Chris Matthews called the RNC out on their "foreigner" rhetoric.
"Broadcasting from outside the Republican National Convention Monday, MSNBC host Chris Matthews repeatedly blasted Romney for his “birther joke,” characterizing the presumptive Republican candidate’s remarks as racist and claiming the GOP intends to run a divisive campaign against Obama.
“Poor Barack Obama is vulnerable, because if he shows any anger, then he’s an angry black man,” Matthews said, implying Obama was a victim of a Republican Party decision to play the race card. “This is used over and over again as a dog whistle, and you don’t have to be a dog to hear it.”
In its coverage of the RNC, MSNBC has insisted the Republican Party is portraying Obama as “different” or not fully American.
“A president of the United States being forced to present his papers has this shoved in his face,” Matthews went on, claiming the controversy stemmed back to the Heritage Foundation in Washington, D.C.
Matthews contended the conservative think tank had argued Obama’s controversial health care plan was a form of European governmental socialism, because it wanted to send a message that Obama was not truly American."
27 August - I wonder if Rush Limbaugh has been skinny dipping in the same lake of insanity that Dr. Kate swims in.
27 August - Gawker reports that Issac Aguigui, the alleged ringleader of a military plot to assassinate President Obama was a page at the 2008 Republican National Convention.
"Isaac Aguigui, the Army private and alleged ringleader of a plot to assassinate Barack Obama and "take over" Ft. Stewart in Georgia, apparently served as a page at the 2008 Republican National Convention in Minneapolis, Minn. That's his mug shot after he was arrested for the alleged murder of Pvt. Michael Roark on the left. At right is a 2008 Reuters photo with the caption: "Republican National Convention page Isaac Aguigui watches from the edge of the floor at the start of the first session of the 2008 Republican National Convention in St. Paul, Minnesota September 1, 2008."
The name of said group is….interesting.
"The group—its numbers are unknown—called itself F.E.A.R., for Forever Enduring, Always Ready."
That sounds less like "anarchists" and more like "oathkeepers"…..
