In today's dispatches, Dr. Orly decides to add the radio host she lied to as a defendant. Joel Gilbert finds a News Corp paper willing to take his money. Dr. Orly writes a motion where she sues, well, everybody. Joseph Farah and his porn-star mustache admits the birther blather is costing them money. Hope their backers don't have deep pockets.
Swiftboat liar Jerome Corsi has been a busy little birther. In the space of a few days, he's pimped Joel Gilbert, published an article about an Israeli site that borrows a lot from World Nut Daily's birther propaganda, and uses a PUMA to pimp the tired old "Obama is Gay" crap.
Sam Sewell and Jerry Collete hear the familiar words "dismissed". Miki Booth ends up on Captain Gillar's starship. "Birther Report" is looking more and more like Stormfront every day, with no attempt to hide the racism. And one of the latest defendants in the Georgia Military Militia case is proud about his political beliefs.
7 September - Dr. Orly files a "Second Amended Complaint Motion for Preliminary Injunction" in regards to her Indiana Birther Ballot Jihad.
(Scribd link here)
It's 81 pages of the usual, of which 51 seem to be the the actual motion. It's hard to say, because it looks like she repeats about 6 pages, and the various size and formatting inconsistencies makes it difficult to track.
Remember that radio show host, Amos Brown (on WTLC 1310) that Dr. Orly, calling herself "Lena", called and was outed upon?? Well, guess what? She added the poor man as a defendant, along with the radio station itself. Why??
"71. Defendants 1310 Radio/WTLC and its employee talk show host Amos Brown had a duty not to commit journalistic malpractice, not to defraud the public, not to defame individuals and not to use their facilities for purposes of aiding and abetting elections fraud and treason."
Isn't it funny how she's complaining Amos Brown committed "Fraud" when she LIED and used a false name to get on his show.
"94. Moreover, Defendant Secretary of State Lawson continued to commit fraud. Lawson appeared on pre-election radio show on AM 1310 /WTLC Indianapolis with Amos Brown. During the show Lawson spoke for about an hour telling the listeners, citizens of Indiana, how safe and secure elections are and how they are free of fraud.
95. Plaintiff Bob Kern called Plaintiff Taitz and asked her to call in the show. Taitz called and advised the listeners that she submitted to Lawson an elections fraud complaint, which put Lawson on notice that candidate Obama is using forged identification papers and is not eligible for office. Taitz demanded an answer from Lawson, why didn't she respond to the complaint and why is she allowing Obama on the ballot under a name not legally his and with all forged IDs."
Notice she doesn't mention that she called the show under the name "Lena"…..
"96. In response, Amos Brown hung up the phone on Taitz. Brown proceeded defaming Taitz, calling her a "crazy birther", defaming her as an attorney and as a human being."
I think you could use every single thing she's filed to challenge her denial of being a "crazy birther".
And you would win too.
"98. Lawson continued defrauding 6,516,922 citizens of the State of Indiana by staying silent and creating an impression that Attorney Taitz was crazy, incompetent and was bringing frivolous challenges and created a false impression that Citizen of Indonesia and possibly Kenya and Great Britain, Obama, was actually a natural born u.s. citizen, who had valid identification papers.
What impression?? A sane and competent attorney wouldn't call in to a radio show under an assumed name and spew a batch of wild-eyed conspiracy blather around.
"101. Defendants Gam and Shelby knew that Obama is committing fraud and using all forged IDs and that Defendants Elections Commission and Secretary of State are aiding and abetting him"
"Wahhh! They let the scary black man stay on the ballot!!!"
"103. Defendants 1310 /radio WTLC by and through their employee talk show host Amos Brown acted with malice and knowingly defrauded the public at large in creating an impression that Obama is a legitimate candidate and that the Plaintiffs and particularly Taitz are crazy, hateful birthers and bigots. Brown made defamatory statements about Taitz both on the air and on the website for the station."
First off, someone who calls into the station under a fake name loses the right to bitch about "fraud".
And second off, the problem is that Dr. Orly IS a crazy, hateful birther and bigot!
"118. As a result of actions by Defendant Dumezich and Defendants AM 1310 AMRadio/WTLC by and through their employee Defendant talk show host Amos Brown, Plaintiff Taitz was seen in false light by the public and members of the community believe her to be somebody, who is bigoted, a racist and crazy, and somebody who was bringing frivolous legal actions."
So in other words, they accurately and truthfully pointed out you are bigoted, racist, crazy, and bringing frivolous legal actions. Good for them!
"Taitz' standing in the community was lowered due to actions by the defendants and Taitz suffered damages due to defamation by the defendants."
The only person who's been lowing the standing in the community of Dr. Orly Taitz is Dr. Orly Taitz.
9 September - Swiftboat Liar Jerome Corsi reports that Joel Gilbert gets a newspaper ad for his massive pack of lies about President Obama's father. While USA Today, the Washington Post and the New York Times all said "oh hell no", the New York Post (which is owned by Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation) said "sure, we'll print your pack of lies".
"The New York Post has accepted a full-page ad declaring Barack Obama’s real biological father is the late Communist Party activist Frank Marshall Davis, not the Kenyan Barack Hussein Obama.
Filmmaker Joel Gilbert makes the case in his full-length documentary “Dreams from My Real Father: A Story of Reds and Deception.”
The ad will run in the Post’s New York City, national and international editions Tuesday and Sunday.
Convincing the newspaper to accept the full-page ad required Gilbert to go personally to the Post’s main editorial office in Manhattan."
Which I suspect consisted of "sure, bring the ad and a check, and no problem."
Not even Newsmax would touch it.
"Newsmax.com also rejected the “Dreams from My Real Father” banner advertising campaign in early May, even after Gilbert had reached an agreement and paid for the campaign in advance.
“Newsmax pulled the banner advertising campaign at the highest level of the organization,” Gilbert said. “Newsmax told me the organization was trying to appeal to the political center and the concern was that publicizing Gilbert’s DVD might make the news organization appear too conservative.
Newsmax’s Tom Mulcrone told WND that Newsmax never accepted Gilbert’s banner ad."
Well, since Joel Gilbert has no credibility, I'm suspecting Newsmax is accurate.
10 September - From the Clarke Daily News (Clarke County, Virginia), a report on Archibald v DoJ,
"On Aug. 31, a Justice Department trial unit defending the president in a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit brought by Berryville resident George Archibald filed motions asking U.S. District Judge Reggie B. Walton to keep results of the FBI’s investigation under seal and to dismiss the case.
Archibald countered by asking Judge Walton to reject the administration’s legal arguments that the FBI records are exempt from release under the FOIA because they relate to FBI investigative methods that must remain secret."
10 September - Over at World Nut Daily, The human face rash, Jerome Corsi, reports on an "Israeli Science Website" that supposedly "proves" Obama's long form is a forgery.
"Israel Science and Technology, the national database and directory of science and technology-related websites in Israel, has published an article asserting the long-form birth certificate released by the White House is a forged document."
Which makes it sound rather official, Except that it isn't. It's a website that collects together science and technology-related websites in that country.
"The website was created by a former science adviser to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel Hanukoglu, Ph.D.
Hanukoglu, an award-winning researcher, is a professor of biochemistry and molecular biology in the Department of Molecular Biology at Ariel University Center of Samaria in Ariel, Israel.
The professor established the first version of his website during his tenure as Netanyahu’s science adviser. The site has evolved into “the premier science and technology portal for Israel.”
At least according to Dr. Israel Hanukoglu. Not that he would be, oh, biased about such…
As for the proof? Well, Dr. Hanukoglu's website uses as "proof" analysis's by….Mara Zebest, the Corsi/Arpaio dog and pony show, eight articles from World Nut Daily, one from American Stinker, a "ConservativeByte" article citing World Nut Daily, and a Carl Gallups birther video.
In science terms, this would be what is called a "conformational bias", using a biased search for information and persistence of discredited beliefs.
If not flat out lying.
10 September - So Dr. Orly has written (no evidence of it being filed yet) a massively huge steaming pile of taitz.
In her post (Malware and redirect warning), she calls this:
"BREAKINF NEWS: OBAMA CHALLENGE WITH PERFECT STANDING AND THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE CHALLENGE WITH 14 CAUSES OF ACTION, 30 DEFENDANTS (AMONG THEM REPRESENTATIVES OF THE MEDIA) 109 PP OF PLEADINGS AND 154 PAGES OF EXHIBITS WAS FILED TODAY
Posted on | September 10, 2012"
If by "most comprehensive challenge" she means "largest steaming mound of taitz that she's dumped on the court to date", then yes.
(PDF here, Dr. Orly's site, malware and redirect warning)
It's 110 pages. And, since it's not been filed, I'm reluctant to say too much until I see the crazy she's unleashed on the court.
She's claiming Fraud, Elections Fraud, Negligence, Breach of Fiduciary Duty, Negligence (again), Defamation, RICO, Racketeering, Defamation of Character, and is demanding a "7th Amendment Jury"
I will note the plaintiff list, which starts with Keith Judd.
Keith Judd is the inmate in Texas who managed to get a good chunk of the Democratic primary votes in West Virginia. So yes, she's got an inmate with a history of rather novel legal and political claims as her client.
The next plaintiff is Dr. Orly herself, and one suspects that in her eyes, that's the only real one that counts.
Our old friend Thomas MacLeran, aka "One Pissed-Off Vietnam Vet" makes the plaintiff list, as does Leah Lax and David Farrar. (David Farrar once said he would stop his birther activities even if he lost his Georgia case. Nice to know he lies like every other birther.
Rounding out the list are New Hampshire State Reps Larry Rappaport. Lucien Vita, and Carol Vita, all Republicans.
The Defendant list is even more special. President Obama, of course, is on the list. So is Natalie Tennant (Secretary of State for West Virginia), Debra Bowen (SoS for California), Brian Kemp (SoS for Georgia), William Gardner (SoS for New Hampshire)
Not being content with that, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, SSA Commissioner Michael Astrue, Former Selective Service Director William Chatfield, Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe, DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano, and AG Eric Holder make the list.
She doesn't leave out Hawaii Department of Health Registrar Alvin Onaka, Democratic Party of Hawaii officials Brian Schatz and Lynn Matusow, and 2008 DNC Convention Secretary Alice Germond.
Obama for America, the Ballot Law Commission of New Hampshire, and the Board of Directors for the California Republican Party also make her party list. Los Angeles County registrar Dean Logan, GOP Senatorial Candidate Elizabeth Emken, and Sen. Dianne Feinstein get their invites as well. And an extra special one goes to Federal Court Judge Clay Land as well.
Yes, she's suing a Federal Judge. This should go over well.
Daily Beast reporter John Avalon. MSNBC host Chris Matthews, Forbes Magazine reporter Kevin Underhill, Los Angeles radio station KFI-AM hosts John and Ken, get very special invites, along with MSNBC, CNN, Forbes, Clear Channel, KFI-AM, and "John Does and Jane Does 1-100 are included to wrap up the "oh god, not this twit again" list.
And, to wrap it up:
"A copy of this complaint is being forwarded to the civil rights commission of the Department of justice, Inspector General of the Department of Justice, Public Integrity Unit of the Department of Justice, House of Representatives Oversight committee, Judiciary Committee, Elections subcommittee, Civil Rights Commission of the United Nations, International Criminal Bar Panel in Haague, Inter-American commission for Human Rights as well as Domestic and International media."
And what she's asking for?? That President Obama not be allowed on the ballot, that every Democratic primary be nullified, that the results of the GOP Senate primary in California be overturned and nullified, that Keith Judd be made the winner of the West Virginia Democratic primary, that triple damages be awarded to all plaintiffs, cost and fees, and punitive damages.
And a pony.
Basically she's trying to refight every case she's lost AND sue anyone who said something mean about her. I'm rather hoping she's finally pole vaulted over the line and that the attorneys for the above defendants nail her liposuctioned ass to the courtroom door.
10 September - According to Talking Points Memo Muckraker, World Nut Daily is losing money due to their birther blather. At least according to Joseph Farah.
"In 1998, Joseph Farah’s WorldNetDaily warned the world that Bill Clinton had a mad plan to hold on to power, by exploiting panic over the Y2K bug. Fourteen years later — with two presidential transfers of power safely and peacefully completed — Farah and his gang are still sounding the alarm as the chief purveyors of undead conspiracy theories about President Obama’s birth."
Why? Because World Nut Daily has been a leading force in right-wing conspiracy claims and theories for the last 14 years or so.
"But Farah, who launched the website out of his bedroom in 1997, says that despite WND’s growth during the Obama era, its relentless pursuit of birth certificate stories is actually bad for business.
“There are advertisers who are afraid of WND because they think we’re obsessed or we’re out on a wild goose chase or it’s just too controversial,” Farah told TPM in a phone interview recently. “We would be making more money if we pretended like the rest of the media there’s no controversy here, there’s no question about that.”
I'm not buying this. The same get-rich quick schemes and quack cures are still being advertised at World Nut Daily now as in 2008.
Besides, World Nut Daily serves a purpose for its investors - spewing lies in hopes some will stick. They don't require that it makes money, they simply require a steady source of lies directed against their political opposition.
"When WND launched, Farah was running a non-profit organization called the Western Journalism Center, an outlet best known for publicizing rumors that the Clinton administration was involved in the suicide of White House Deputy Counsel Vincent Foster."
So they've been in the lies and dirty tricks department for a while now.
"Farah’s first big attempt to push a conservative agenda at a newspaper came when developers bought the Sacramento Union in 1989 and installed him as its top editor editor the following year. Not long after, the San Diego Union-Tribune wrote that the Sacramento newspaper had “become a mouthpiece for the fundamentalist Christian right, preoccupied with abortion, homosexuals and creationism.” Eleven top editors and managers quit, retired or were fired in just a matter of months.
By 1992, the newspaper was in serious financial straits. Farah resigned, writing later that the paper’s owners weren’t providing the financial resources to turn it around."
Hmmm….Sounds like Farah has some pretty horrible business sense.
"Farah claims WND has paid a price for its pursuit of the birth certificate issue but says he’s fine with that being what WND is best known for."
What, lies, propaganda, and bovine byproducts?? If that's what you want your legacy to be, so be it.
10 September - So remember that "can't fail" Do-It-Yourself birther case that Sam Sewell and Jerry Collette came up with??
(Scribd link here)
11 September - Over at the green-screened bridge of the USS Boobyprise, Mark Gillar gets to listen to Miki Booth's conspiracy theories about Karl Rove being the reason why the GOP hasn't completely embraced birtherism, despite that party's attempt to drive out their remaining sane members.
11 September - Diana West raves and gets all thrilled over Swiftboat liar Jerome Corsi's pimping of Dr. Hanukoglu's site.
"This inaction, this silence, this cowardice is far worse than any criminal's forgery, and remains our most dangerous enemy long after the forgers and falsifiers and perjurers are exposed, along with whatever role President Obama has played in this fraud.
Of course, "exposed" by whom? Not our media, which the good scientist(s) at Israel Science and Technology neglected to cite for their abdication of professional and moral responsibility. At this point in this cover-up -- the most outrageous in history -- the main interest of the political class and the media is to prevent the truth from coming out in order to retain their own legitimacy, their own power, their own version of the status quo, all shot to bits by their role in perpetuating this national scandal. In other words, it is their national scandal, too. Like conspirators in a crime, their only recourse is to remain silent.
But the truth is out. Who will be first among them to break ranks and come into the daylight?"
11 September - Keeping it (KK)Klassy over at Birther Report… (bold face mine)
"Anonymous said…[Reply] No, you are mistaken--he's a citizen of the WORLD!!! Kumbaya!
The bastard mulatto child of a teenage slut…
September 11, 2012 3:06 PM"
They really are turning into "Stormfront" before our very eyes.
"Dealio" still wants his revolto.
"Dealio said…[Reply] Only one question remains- what are we going to do about it? There is only one answer. We march in the millions and clean house by arresting all three branches. Basically, we end this on our terms. September 11, 2012 2:35 PM"
Considering the birtherstani can't even get a couple hundred together for a rally, where does he think he's getting these "millions"??
11 September - So the human face rash continues his scraping the bottom of the barrel, this time by bringing up the tired old "Obama is Gay" claims.
"A prominent member of Chicago’s homosexual community claims Barack Obama’s participation in the “gay” bar and bathhouse scene was so well known that many who were aware of his lifestyle were shocked when he ran for president and finally won the White House."
O RLY?? And just who is this "prominent member"??
“It was preposterous to the people I knew then to think Obama was going to keep his gay life secret,” said Kevin DuJan, who was a gossip columnist in Chicago for various blogs when Obama was living in the city as a community organizer and later a state senator."
Yes, Kevin DuJan. PUMA and the operator of the PUMA litter box known as "Hillbuzz".
Not what I would call an "unbiased source".
"Investigative journalist Wayne Madsen, who worked with the National Security Agency from 1984 to 1988 as a Navy intelligence analyst, confirmed DuJan’s claims."
The same Wayne Madsen who's been pimping birther claims and other conspiracy theories??
"WND also spoke with a member of the East Bank Club in Chicago, who confirmed Obama was a member there and was known to be a homosexual. The upscale fitness club, which has some 10,000 members, is not a “gay” facility. But it’s one of a number of places identified by the Chicago homosexual community as a “gay gym,” where homosexuals meet and engage in sexual activity."
And, once again, the classic "unnamed source", which more than likely doesn't exist outside of Corsi's mind.
"DuJan insisted that while he’s a supporter of Hillary Clinton, he holds no personal animus toward Obama. He said he campaigned for Clinton in 2008 “because I had waited for years for her to be able to run.”"
That is a complete and total load of horse manure. He's been attacking and spreading any and all lies about Obama he can since summer of 2008.
In terms of credibility, this ranks up there with DuJan's whine that he can't get dates anymore because of his support for Sarah Palin, or that his drinks are being poisoned by "leftist gays" due to his "support of Sarah Palin and the Tea Party".
The funny thing is he's cozying up to Corsi, Farah, and the World Nut Daily crew - who HATE Gays and Lesbians with the heat of a thousand white hot suns.
Talk about a "useful idiot"
11 September - More arrests in the FEAR Militia case in Georgia.
"Four former Army soldiers and a civilian have been charged in new indictments for connections to an anti-government militia that authorities say was led by Fort Stewart troops who stockpiled weapons and talked of ultimately overthrowing the U.S. government.
A Liberty County grand jury indicted the five on charges of illegal gang activity and various counts involving theft, burglary and auto break-ins. Those crimes were committed to help fund the militia group, which called itself F.E.A.R., short for Forever Enduring Always Ready, District Attorney Tom Durden said Tuesday.
"The burglaries and entering autos, they were committed in an effort to fund F.E.A.R. and what F.E.A.R. was at least advocating they wanted to accomplish," said Durden, the top prosecutor for southeast Georgia's Atlantic Judicial Circuit. Their plans included bombing a Savannah park fountain and poisoning apple crops in the state of Washington, prosecutors say.
The new indictments Monday bring to 10 the total number of people charged in connection with the militia group."
Oh, and remember how the press originally called the group "anarchists" and far-right bloggers said they were liberals??
"The indictments in south Georgia charged Joiner with three home burglaries, nine car break-ins, and other thefts of items including guns, cellphones, GPS devices, bulletproof vest, a motorcycle helmet and a woman's debit cards. Randall Dearman was also charged in two of the burglaries and the car break-ins, which all occurred within a two-day period in mid-December. Adam Dearman helped coordinate the thefts, according to the indictment. Garner was charged with receiving more than $500 worth of stolen goods from the burglaries.
Joiner answered his cellphone Tuesday but declined to discuss the case.
"I'm a proud Republican," Joiner said. "I will not make any comments about this on the record until I am in court.""
Ooopsie. Sounding more and more like "Oathkeepers" to me.
12 September - The Huffington Post reports on the human face rash's pimping of Kevin DuJan.
"Jerome Corsi, who, despite his books sales is not a credible author, spoke with Kevin DuJan in a new article for WND. DuJan, who reportedly worked as a gossip columnist in Chicago during Obama's years as a community organizer and an Illinois senator, alleges that the president was actively involved in the city's gay bar and bathhouse scene.
"It was preposterous to the people I knew then to think Obama was going to keep his gay life secret,” DuJan, who describes himself as "conservative, Christian gay man" on his website, is quoted as saying.
Suggesting that the president's closeted life "would have to come out just like John Edwards’ secrets came out," DuJan says that Obama is "homosexual" as opposed to bisexual, and went on to note: "If you just hang out at these bars, the older guys who have been frequenting these gay bars for 25 years will tell you these stories. Obama used to go to the gay bars during the week, most often on Wednesday, and they said he was very much into older white guys."
Corsi's piece also cites investigative journalist Wayne Madsen, who says Obama's visits to local gay bars and bathhouses was "common knowledge" in the community."
12 September - Once again, "Birther Report" or "Stormfront"? Or is there any difference?
(Bold face mine)
