In today's dispatches. Linda Jordan files a birther ballot jihad case of her own in Washington State. Some more interesting background on that active-duty militia in Georgia. Dr. Orly accuses the judge of bias and the defense of treason in her attempt to raise the corpse of Keyes/Barnett v Obama.
Joseph Farah wants people to blame birtherism on that uppity darkie pretending to be President. Rather than on, oh, I dunno, the conspiracy-minded twitwaffles that pimp the story at places like "World Nut Daily".
I wouldn't be surprised to find a white robe and hood in Rush Limbaugh's closet.
Viscount Monckton continues to be a conspiracy cretin. Van Irion is shocked, shocked I tell you, that anyone would call his birther case a birther case. Swiftboat liar Jerome Corsi once again flings old mud. George Miller and Pam Barnett want the birther bucks baby.
Joe Arpaio's legal fun continues. And Linda Jordan loses a birther ballot jihad case of her own in Washington State.
27 August - Linda Jordan files a complaint trying to keep President Obama off the Washington State Ballot.
(Scribd link here)
The lawsuit is standard birther copy and paste, mostly reprinting the Maricopa CCCP's "research" and liberally citing Mara Zebest as an "expert".
27 August - Looks like that plot by active duty personnel who formed a "militia" went a bit beyond merely planning to kill the President of the United States.
"His 20-year-old son, Isaac Aguigui, stands accused of masterminding a plot, with four other Fort Stewart based soldiers, to overthrow the U.S. government. Prosecutors allege the plot included bombing a Washington State Dam and poisoning the state’s apple supply. The alleged plan came to light only on Monday after one soldier, Michael Burnett, admitted to playing a part in the murder of another soldier to cover up the group.
Burnett told a judge that Aguigui ordered the murder of former soldier Michael Roark, originally from Everett, and his girlfriend Tiffany York, to clean up “a loose end is the way Isaac put it.”
Oh, and the claim that Isaac Aquiqui was possibly a page at the 2008 Republican Convention?
"Ed Aguigui, an Army vet himself, says his son grew up wearing “the uniform and playing army.” He acknowledged his son was a page at the Republican National Convention in Minneapolis in 2008, and was active politically."
How very interesting. I wonder just how politically active his son was and with whom?
I'm really not buying the "anarchist" claim anymore.
27 August - Dr. Orly files her reply to the defense opposition to reconsider the shambling corpse of Keyes/Barnett v Obama.
(Scribd link here)
And right off the back:
"Defendants are shamelessly misrepresenting the statute and defrauding the court. for which their attorneys should be sanctioned"
Because they dared to say "no, not buying her excuse, sorry."
"At issue is the most serious crime ever to be committed against the United States of America, specifically usurpation of the U.S. Presidency by a foreign national, citizen if lndonesia and possibly still a citizen ofKenya and Great Britain, Barack Hussein Obama, who was able to get into the position of the U.S. Senator from Illionis, U.S. President and currently a candidate for the 2012 election by virtue of fraud, use of forged and fraudulently obtained lDs and a Racketeering scheme, which involves corflrpt high ranking officials of the U.S. movement and the movement of the State of Hawaii
It serves justice for the court to review the evidence provided and grant the leave o
court to file the Second Amended Complaint."
Translation - "Who cares about the rules, A SCARY BLACK MAN IS PRESIDENT!! SCREEECH!!"
"Racketeering conspiracy of several corrupt federal and state officials who are criminally complicit and are aiding and abetting Obama and committing treason against the United States of America, was never adjudicated on the merits."
Because there WERE no merits??
"Neither Judge Carter nor any other judge in this nation ever received any valid identification papers from Obama, which would refute evidence showing him using all forged IDs. Obama failed to respond to any subpoenas and failed to appear in court and failed to present his identification papers, even after a judge in a similar case Farrar v Obama OSAH-SECSTATE-CE-121513 6- 60-MAI-IHI ruled in favor of the plaintiffs and denied Obama's motion to quash subpoenas issued by attorney Taitz."
Do you really want the court to take note of the fact you lost to an empty table??
"As Your Honor is an appointee of the Democrat President Clinton, the public and the plaintiffs are deeply conceded that the due process and equal protection rights of the Plaintiffs are egregiously violated under the color of authority in order to promote narrow Democratic Party interests."
Ah yes, accuse the Judge of partisan bias. That always works well.
27 August - In a stunning case of blame the victim, Joesph Farah lays the whole birtherism movement at the feet of Barack Obama.
"No one else besides Barack Obama can claim credit for the title “birthed-in-chief.” He owns it. He prompted the very term. He sustained it needlessly. And then he blames others for his own absolute unwillingness to provide the most rudimentary documentation of his eligibility for office."
Translation - "See, it's his own damn fault for not doing what we told him to and showing us his damn papers!!"
"I wouldn’t be surprised to see Mitt Romney get a nice bump in the pre-convention polls as a result of his birth certificate challenge."
Considering how he's tried to backpedal it, the answer would be "no".
"Obama’s true life story is as much a mystery today as it was in 2008. His story doesn’t add up. His arrogant, steadfast unwillingness to release virtually any documentation – from a legitimate birth certificate to his school records to his travel papers to his health reports and more – makes it clear to thinking Americans that something’s not right here. All that smoke suggests a fire."
Wow. Joseph Farah couldn't get more obvious if he flat out said "Show us your damn papers, BOY!!"
And the comments are what you would expect. (Bold face mine)
This charlatan and wife should be PILORIED for quite a while prior to landing them in the slammer for quite a spell then off to any country that will have them. The aunt and uncle, both here on expired visa, should go as well. Call him what he has called himself, A foreign National.
" Alexander Gofen
Romney and GOP are arrogant demagogues defying the intelligence of the American people.
If Romney honestly wished to defeat the opponent, all he needs to say to Obama is:
- Show your authentic papers!
- Those you had produced earlier were blatant forgeries - here are proofs.
- Your social security is invalid - here is the proof. Therefore you are implicated in crimes.
- Your both fathers were foreigners, you were an Indonesian citizen - which alone abrogates your alleged Natural Born status.
And that would be the end of it. The impostor would resign before the elections. He lasts so long exactly because of the refusal (collusion with him) of all parties and statesmen even to pose these questions! Then and only then America would defeat Obama and deliver the justice to him in the only way proper to a civilized nation.
A civilized nation rids of a notorious criminal by prosecuting and convicting him, rather than hoping that he possibly loses the re-election (!). Shame on you America!
"…to dream, the impossible dream."
It's not just the birth certificate issue. It's all the other purposeful obfuscation in his college days, his ties to known Weatherman terrorists, his links to dubious black and Islamic radicals, his use of sexual blackmail against opponents in his early congressional campaigns of the type used on Herman Cain, and more than can be gone into on a message board.
Obama is a fictional construction that appeals to people who live in 'wag the dog' universes, i.e. guilt-ridden, self-loathing white liberal males and Miss Congeniality white females who spread their legs for world peace like Obama's porno mom. Until the GOP gets serious about recruiting more white youth, and black and hispanic folks with family values, hustlers like Obama will continue to game white idiocy and racial diversity in the electorate, and claim to speak for the 'masses'.
Whether Romney wins or not, a storm is coming to America that will 'make all things new'. The enemy within that coalesced around Obama has gotten a taste of presidential power and now they are hooked like vampires straight out of True Blood. And like vampires, Obama's NAMBLA/Crip/Blood minions 'own the night', i.e. a united front of sexual deviance and spiritual darkness. And like humans, we 'own the day' knowing full well that the sunlight and exposure of the truth will turn them to dust. Be the sunlight. Prepare for the vampires. And don't turn the other cheek or they will go for your throat.
"…but we're not racist, honest!!"
27 August - Once again, Birther Report rides World Nut Daily's coattails.
And lookie at this comment! (Bold face mine)
I'm going to hit this from a slightly different angle.
It's already been stated that the nbc clause was put in the constitution because they didn't want anyone with divided loyalties.
That means they want an American. It would also imply they didn't want an African-American.
If the term African-American doesn't mean divided loyalties, then just what exactly does it mean?
Of course it mean divided loyalties, otherwise they wouldn't use the term.
You can be on the side of the truth, or you can be a little panty-waist that shakes at the knees at the thought of someone calling you a racist for speaking the obvious truth.

"…but we're not racist, honest!!"
28 August - You know, it's really hard to think of Rush Limbaugh as anything other than a racist pile of elephant dung.
"Instead of sending sandbags to shore up these levees, which have ostensibly been repaired since Katrina, we send in bags of money! We send in bags of money delivered by Mitt Romney's sons. And we take those bags of money down to those levees.
We maybe even set one bag on fire just to show 'em we're Republicans. This will accomplish a couple things. A, it'll show we care. "We have sent money directly to New Orleans, in bags at the levees." The second thing that will happen is that citizens in New Orleans, when they find out there's money in those bags, will head down there and try to steal the bags, steal the money, at which time the levees will fail because the bags are being taken away.
And more destruction, damage, and injury. In the process, the Republicans succeed in having fewer Democrat voters in Louisiana again. Just like they did with Hurricane Katrina. And everybody knows that was the point. Steer Katrina in there; wipe out New Orleans. Have the people that survive go to Texas and take Democrats away from Louisiana and make it not a Democrat state. That's what the media told us Republicans did with Katrina. So relive it.
Those are my ideas."
If those are your ideas, you're an even bigger jackass than most people thought.
28 August - The Seattle Times reports on Isaac Aguigui
"According to The Wenatchee World, Isaac Aguigui represented Washington state in the American Legion Boys Nation held in July 2008 in Washington, D.C.
The Boys Nation is a weeklong citizenship and government program in the nation's capital that is designed to instill in each participant a deep loyalty to America while providing practical insight into the operation of the federal government, officials say.
He also reportedly served as a page during the 2008 Republican National Convention.
The World also reports he was among 21 Republicans who gathered in Wenatchee in October 2008 for the third and final presidential debate.
"When Obama outlined his health-care plan," the newspaper reported, "17-year-old Isaac Aguigui of Cashmere said, 'That makes absolutely no sense.' "

28 August - At World Nut Daily, wannabe House of Lords member Viscount Monckton presumes to lecture us poor colonials on OUR Constitution.
"In today’s Europe, we are ruled by faceless Kommissars elected by none, accountable to none, removable by none. By contrast, the United States is still, in Walt Whitman’s memorable phrase, “the athletic democracy.” Or, rather, it was.
For your governing class has cravenly abandoned the Constitution. Faced with one of the most flagrant and persisting breaches of that great charter of freedom in your nation’s history, they totter fight less from the field."
Translation - "OMGWTFBBQ You elected a black man??"
"There is no room in this column to point out all of the obvious defects in Mr. Obama’s transparently forged “birth certificate.” I have summarized them in a briefing for my Peers."
You mean that piece of tripe you wrote hoping the House of Peers would notice you??
"I asked a senior Republican attorney what he thought. He became hysterical and said: “Don’t touch the issue. Birthers are pointy-heads. They will draw you in. Your reputation will be ruined. Really.”
Wouldn't that require a reputation to ruin??
28 August - Not surprisingly, Birther Report once again rides World Nut Daily's coattails, this time about Viscount Monckton's tripe.
Gotta love another Brit who is trying to stage a coup against the US government…
Never forget who our real enemies are.
Have you never considered that whoever installed Obama did it for exactly this purpose - to create a Constitutional crisis that leaves us open to hostile takeover?
If all the people calling for a military coup to unseat Obama just considered that maybe this is what the entire charade is all about…

What purpose is that? Treason? Sedition?
Obama said himself he was born in Kenya. It says so in his bio.
He is called and "African-American". Which means he has divided loyalties.

… Video #3 After the 08 elections there were two radio talk hosts who called called and talked and recorded a conversation with the King of Kenya, The question was asked if Obama was born there and if the country would build a monument for Obama and install in in the city of Baracks birth. The king said that he was born there and a monument was already underway and going to be installed in the city of his birth. Now here is proof it is heresy until someone opens the sealed information that Obama is hiding. Why are we just sitting around on our A$$eS doing nothing about it. Our elected officials in DC are all in this together. Obama is not eligible to be President until his records are checked and he needs to be arrested and held in jail till we get to the bottom of this. ALL THESE VIDEOS ARE ON U-TUBE CHECK FOR YOUR SELF.

" E. Underlying Case is Not a “Birther” Case"
O RLY?? Funny, it makes all the same claims and uses all the same lies as a birther case.
"The Appellees’ opposition attempts to prejudice this Court by labeling the Appellants as “birthers.”
If the shoe fits….
"Appellees’ use of a slanderous label is their attempt to group the instant litigation with cases that raise completely different facts and legal issues. Appellees’ slander simply demonstrates their fear of the simple legal fact asserted in the instant litigation."
Yeah, how dare they call a birther case a birther case!!
29 August - And who might be stirring up the whole "race war" meme??
"Whether Willard thinks he is the Mormon that saves America from a constitutional crisis or not, he is doing everything in his power to create an environment of enmity between African Americans and “real Americans” (read white). However, Romney is not alone and there has been a steady drumbeat to stir up resentment against African Americans that Republicans claim are taking money from white people that is better spent on tax cuts for the wealthiest one-percent of income earners and their corporations. There is no other explanation for the dog-whistle racism Romney is engaged in, and after more than six months of a KKK-inspired campaign slogan of “keeping America American” with persistent assertions that President Obama needs to “learn to be an American,” there is little question why angry white racists are preparing for the “coming race war” and revolution to “take back America” from the African American President whose policies are “foreign to America.”
What is most frightening is that Americans have only learned about three calls for revolution, civil (race) war, and overthrow of the government, because hate groups and militias are on the rise and will only get worse when President Obama wins reelection. One just needs to visit any gun club, shooting range, or gun show to witness displays and exhibits warning of the coming race war and revolution. In California, there are paramilitary groups practicing assaults on government buildings, and within 8 miles of this author’s home there is an Aryan group with rocket launchers, 2 Howitzers, 50-caliber machine guns, full-body armor, hand grenades, assault weapons and enough ammunition to mount a “full-scale assault on government forces” when “the race war begins.” There is only one constant in all these disaffected groups and it is opposition to an African American man “illegally sitting in a place he doesn’t belong” and they are all hardline, conservative-Christian Republicans who want nothing more than a violent overthrow of the government.
America is fracturing apart and when these heavily-armed groups begin shooting it is all down to Republicans inciting opposition to President Obama and violence against the government. Michele Bachmann called for Minnesota residents to be “armed and dangerous” to fight against federal laws, and failed senate candidate Sharon Angle invoked 2nd Amendment remedies against the United States Congress because they passed laws conservatives were unhappy with. This is one time when Republicans cannot dare say it is happening on both sides of the political spectrum because only Republicans are using divisive language and inciting hatred for an entire race, and they just nominated the racist who, by admission, is ratcheting up racist rhetoric to garner support from white voters."
29 August - Once again Jerome Corsi digs up old lies.
"The former personal aide to Barack Obama known as the president’s “body man,” Reggie Love, resurfaced on the eve of the Republican National Convention to support his old boss.
Hired as Obama’s “deputy political director,” the Duke University basketball and football star was the constant companion of the president for two years before resigning last November.
The White House explained Love had decided to pursue further studies at the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania, but the Internet, at the time, was abuzz with speculation that Love was dismissed because of the wide circulation of compromising photographs of him when he was a college student. The photos purported to show a heavily inebriated Love surrounded by fellow students assisting him in engaging in a homosexual act at a party on the rival University of North Carolina campus."
And who does Corsi site to back this up? Drudge Report, conservative conspiracy nut Wayne Madsen, Larry Sinclair, and the PUMA blog "HillBuzz".
29 August - George Miller wants the birtherstani to pour more money down their own rathole.
"Capt. Pamela Barnett, Obama State Ballot Challenge Director, initiated this suit and has done pro se representation, since we cannot afford a lawyer. "

"It is important to continue this case, win or lose, to help inform the public, to document official corruption in the judiciary, SOS and AG office and to keep our future legal options open. "
Ah, so you admit it's a nuisance lawsuit.
"Experience and prior court rulings have shown that it is important to have a case initiated before the election. "
Not that the results are going to be any different. But you need to spead lies and slime about someone BEFORE an election, not afterwards.
And straight from the horse's ass herself….
"The California Obama Ballot Challenge case Edward Noonan et al v. Secretary of State Bowen, Obama For America and Obama, has a good chance to win on appeal, as Judge Kenny in Sacramento made serious errors of law in the lower court ruling."

29 August - Oh shucky darn.
"The U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Wednesday that two news executives for the Phoenix New Times can sue the Maricopa County sheriff's office for their 2007 arrests.
The men, newspaper co-owners Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin, were arrested at their homes in the middle of the night after their publication reported the sheriff's office planned to use a subpoena to figure out who was talking to journalists about Arpaio. Arpaio's allies drafted subpoenas that "demanded that the paper reveal its confidential sources as well as produce reporters’ and editors' notebooks, memoranda, and documents" related to stories about Arpaio, according to the court ruling. The New Times refused, leading to misdemeanor charges against Lacey and Larkin of disclosing grand jury inner workings. The charges were dropped the next day.
The two executives attempted to sue Arpaio for $15 million in 2008, alleging that the sheriff's office falsely arrested them, violated their right to due process and targeted them for selective prosecution. A lower court dismissed that lawsuit, a ruling overturned by the federal appeals court.
"Sheriff Arpaio should have known that arresting someone at his home requires a warrant, unless there are exigent circumstances," the appeals court opinion said. "We cannot fathom what exigent circumstances compelled either arrest."
Ruling here (PDF)
29 August - Courtroom observers report that Linda Jordan's birther ballot jihad in Washington State is dismissed with prejudice.
29 August - And here's the decision in Jordan v Reed, all seven pages.
(Scribd link here)
And the fun starts with the very first paragraph.
"The birther movement has been a subplot on the fringe of the political spectrum in the U.S. for about five years. Recent history is not the first time it has been raised. In 1880 Chester Arthur, the son of a father of Irish citizenship and a mother of U.S. citizenship, was rumored to have been born not in Ver:mont where all credible evidence established his birthplace, but in Canada. This unfounded rumor did not receive much traction, perhaps because the internet had not been as fully developed then as it is now."
What follows may be one of the best legal slap downs the birthers have received to date. It's rather obvious someone did their homework and was less than impressed with what they found.
"The vast majority of these cases however involved President Obama. The first wave occurred during the presidential campaign of 2008, and involved issues similar or identical to those raised in this case. Plaintiff Linda Jordan cannot be unaware of those cases. None were successful. Most were dismissed on standing grounds; a question not directly at issue in this case because plaintiff purports to bring this case under RCW 29A.68.011, subparts 1 and 3, which confers standing on any elector. But others, including Ankeny v. Governor of State of Indiana, 916 N .E.2d 678 (2009) addressed the merits."
And on page two, an Ankeny reference!
"2. I conclude that this court lacks subject matter jurisdiction. The primacy of congress to resolve issues of a candidate's qualifications to serve as president is established in the U.S. Constitution, in the passages cited by the Secretary of State. Two reported appellate decisions make this clear. In Robinson v Bowen…."
That's two case cites….
"Plaintiff knows the law, she quotes the text of §.030 in her motion.2 Nevertheless, she contends that the Secretary of State has the duty, apparently under this statute, to investigate President Obama's citizenship before placing him on the ballot. Even if §.030 applied to candidates for president, Dumas does not support plaintiffs contention; it specifically rejects such a broad interpretation of that law. I conclude that the Secretary of State has not violated the law by provisionally certifying President Obama's candidacy without undertaking an investigation into his citizenship. Further, I conclude that he will not have violated the law when he removes the "provisional" condition after President Obama is officially nominated."
One suspects the judge is having some fun….
"No rational person could conclude that the there exists any substantial uncertainty about the nomination of either President Obama or Mr. Romney. I conclude that no violation of the law has occurred in this regard."
But you're not dealing with rational people, you're dealing with birthers.
"In 2010, the California Court of Appeals, in Keyes v Bowen, 117 Cal.Rptr.3d 207, addressed this issue in a case remarkably similar in its facts to this case."
"I began this explanation of my decision with some history of the birther movement, and I conclude with some more history."
*Gets some popcorn out*
"Even after the election of 2008, so-called birther lawsuits continued. A lawyer, self styled as the leader of the birther movement, "
"…filed a series of lawsuits on behalf of service members seeking to avoid deployment to war zones on the grounds that President Obama, the commander in chief, did not legitimately hold that office. Some federal courts eventually forbade him from filing any additional lawsuits. One such case, Rhodes v. MacDonald, 2009 WL 2997605 (M.D. Ga. 2009), contained a passage that particularly resonated in light of the type of evidence plaintiff offers in this case."
"She offers as evidence the musings of the infamous Arizona sheriff Joe Arpiao, supported by the report by a part-time computer programmer last employed in May 2007, who examined a copy of the pdf image of President Obama's birth certificate and concluded that the original was forged. She offers the affidavit of a private investigator who opines that President Obama is fraudulently using the social security number of another person Who was born in 18904 and was issued the social security number in 1977. The investigator is not able to identify the person and does not offer any insight as to why this hypothetical person waited until he or she was 87 years old before applying for and receiving a social security number. The rest of plaintiffs evidence is the standard fare of the blogosphere that has been floating around since 2008."
"I do not usually devote so much time quoting the decisions of other courts in other cases. I do so here to make the point that just as all the so-called evidence offered by plaintiff has been in the blogosphere for years, in one form or another, so too has all the law rejecting plaintiffs allegations. I can conceive of no reason why this lawsuit was brought, except to join the chorus of noise in that blogosphere. The case is dismissed."
Someone needs a few dozen chocolate chip cookies and a thank you note sent to him….
