In today's dispatches, a whine from conspiracy peddler and propagandist Joseph Farah that nobody in the mainstream media is taking him seriously, darn it. (Gee, what a surprise). A GOP candidate in Hawaii has birther ties.
A rather disturbing display in California. Obama Ballot Challenge goes for the "whiney letter" and "harassing elected officials" portion of the birther ecosystem. Miki Booth has a new name that makes me wonder how much Hawaiian she actually knows.
The human face rash has a new conspiracy about President Obama's secret Muslim agent decoder ring. Paul Irey and Douglas Vogt show off their complete lack of typography or spelling skills. New commenting system, but same Birther Report racism. And Dr. Orly threatens law enforcement officials.
6 October - World Nut Daily's founder Joseph Farah whines that nobody takes him or his pornstar mustache seriously.
"Last Thursday, WND broke the stunning news that Barack Obama’s administration offered a secret election-eve deal to Iran that would result in reduced sanctions in exchange for a phony diplomatic coup designed to bolster his vote Nov. 6.
The report is based on hard intelligence gathered by Reza Kahlili, the highly esteemed former CIA spy inside the Iranian Revolutionary Guard and counterterrorism expert.
Of course, hundreds of thousands of Americans read the report in WND – which may be enough to ensure Obama cannot get away with an “October Surprise” in which he announces dramatically that his administration has successfully persuaded Iran to suspend uranium enrichment in its effort to develop a nuclear weapons arsenal."
The third paragraph gives a hint as to why people don't take Farah or World Nut Daily seriously - their deep devotion to paranoid conspiracy theories.
"Obama sent a representative to Qatar to meet with a representative of Iran’s Ayatollah Ali Khamenei with an offer: If Iran suspends uranium enrichment for even just two weeks before the election, this would greatly benefit Obama’s political situation, resulting in a reduction of sanctions currently imposed on Iran because of its nuclear weapons program. Obama’s representative even warned that Iran would have a much easier time dealing with Obama in a second term than with Mitt Romney. In other words, this move was all about Obama’s re-election bid, his personal political objectives, not U.S. national security.
It’s a shocker. It’s a scandal of epic proportions. It’s the kind of development that demonstrates so clearly why Obama represents a clear and present danger to U.S. national security. He will do anything and say anything to win re-election at any cost. To Obama, Republicans represent a bigger threat than a nuclear Iran."
And Farah's proof of this is what exactly??
Oh, right. A "source affiliated with high Iranian officials" that "remains anonymous for security reasons".
In other words, a completely unverifiable "source" that, for all we know, was completely made up by Joseph Farah.
And yet another reason why people might not take World Nut Daily seriously. Not to mention little things like their complete and total embrace of birtherism, their espousing of wing bat conspiracy theories, and complete lack of anything like journalistic ethics or integrity.
8 October - Racist much??
Oh, and he's a birther and de Vattelist too, and praying for Romney to become president and "release Obama's records"
8 October - Seems a GOP candidate for Hawaii State Senate has some birther leanings.
"Republican Larry Fenton, who is running against Democratic Sen. Brian Taniguchi for the reapportioned District 11 seat on Oahu, says he served summons Monday (Oct. 8) that accuse state employees of “aiding and abetting President Obama in fraudulently obtaining ballot access through false and altered documentation.”
Papers were served for Alvin T. Onaka and Loretta Fuddy at the Hawaii DOH, Lt. Gov. Brian Schatz, the Attorney General’s Office and for Lynne Matusow at Democrat Party Headquarters.
Excerpt from Fenton’s release:
In Judd v. Obama, a case filed in US District Court, Central District of California, Southern Division, the complaint alleges that Defendant Onaka, Registrar of the State of Hawaii, aided and abetted Obama and was complicit in the cover up of the fact that Obama is using a forged birth certificate from the state of Hawaii. Onaka refused to provide an original birth certificate or original microfilm for examination. Also defendant’s Brian Schatz and Lynne Matusow are alleged to have aided and abetted fraud committed by Obama when they signed an altered/falsified Official Certification Of Nomination form from the Hawaii Department of Elections and removed the necessary wording “eligible according to the US Constitution” from the document in 2008."
The fact he's citing Dr. Orly's "Taitz vs. Everyone+dog" case speaks volumes to Mr. Fenton's state of mind. Oh and it seems that Mr. Fenton's involvement was as a process server for Dr. Orly….
Oh, and look at this gem in comments:
"Cliffy Wild · Top Commenter
It's about time that someone had the "Spheres" to stand up to that un-evolved muslim.
For the life of me, I can't figure out WHY most republicans are scared to stand up to that piece of dog crap.
IF I were in a political position, so as to be able to take that jerk-off on, he'd neither intimidate me, nor give me cause or incentive to look the other way.
And, with his trusty TelePrompTer and all the media buffers out of the way; the presidential impostor has proven himself to be the single worst presidential debater that ever usurped our air.
Here's hoping that after January 20th, 2013, that Barry is convicted of High Treason against the United States; and has his sentencement date expedited to as soon as possible, with no provisions for a pardon from President Romney.

Racist, bigoted, and calling for President Obama's execution. It's a birther trifecta.
9 October - Oh charming.
"Several anti-Obama racist displays have popped up around the U.S. during this election year, which is looking more like 1912 than 2012.
A political display created by homeowner Blake la Beck, in Morgan Hill, California, features an empty chair, except for two watermelons. Draped on the side of the chair is a noose with a sign which reads: "Go back to Kenya."
Note the Romney sign too. Classy.
"San Martin resident Ben Gomez told KTVU-TV: "We shouldn't be threatening with a noose and a watermelon. I believe that's a little over the top. I like the chair and the teleprompter. I mean, they're just copying Clint Eastwood, so I can't blame them on that one. But the noose goes a little over the edge."
A "little"?? More like "A whole lot".
"Steve Preminger, chair of the Santa Clara County Democratic Party, said: "I think it's a very silly prank. It's like someone thinks that Halloween is right around the corner, I guess. I think it's very disrespectful that someone should do that. I think there are racist overtones. To me it's the mark of a kind of bizarre person."
President Obama's campaign building in Des Moines, Iowa, was vandalized with the words "Muslim Lier" ["Liar" was misspelled]."
It's getting uglier and uglier…..
9 October - "Obama Ballot Challenge" seems to be taking the place of the pre-firewall Pest and eFail when it comes to the birther tradition of "whiney letters".
In this case, it's Carl Swensson's and Walter Fitzpatrick's buddy Zeb Blanchard writing the Georgia Attorney General.
"Secretary Kemp has placed putative candidate Obama on the Georgia general ballot for president.
This is, allegedly, in violation of Georgia election laws and the responsibility of the Attorney General’s office to investigate."
Translation - "How DARE he put that uppity darkie on the ballot!!
"Two things must happen in order for this election process to comply with Georgia’s election laws: A filing of candidacy must be submitted by the state party and the qualifications of that candidate must be examined for validity by the Secretary of State. The “buck” has gone round and round on this issue, it has stopped at the Attorney Generals’ office, and now it is the responsibility of the Attorney General to see that the law of OCGA 21-2-5 is complied with.
We are falling deeper and deeper into tyranny as we continue to ignore the law and constitutional processes. Anarchy follows tyranny like night follows day. Soon we will be able to file Bubba’s Blue Tick coon dog for federal office without challenge, and Georgia seems to be leading the way."
Bubba's Blue Tick coon dog may actually be a better candidate than most of the Georgia GOP.
9 October - Miki Booth is pimping her book.
"Miki Booth shared a link.
3 hours ago
Please share this link - More books are now in stock through Amazon by yours truly "Annie Okole." The Publisher's inventory is COMPLETELY SOLD OUT!! Read the reviews - especially the negative comments by hysterical obots. Their heads are exploding!!!"
1) Considering that she went though a "vanity press" for these things, I suspect that what she did was get the rest of them out of her garage and to an Amazon distribution centre somewhere. (Sales rank is #2,722,704, far lower than Terry Lakin's remainder bait).
2) She's calling herself "Annie Okole"?? REALLY? Anyone who's lived in the Islands for a while knows damn well that Okole is pidgin for "butt", "ass", or "rump"! Even a ilio wahine like Miki SHOULD know it, she's more than likely been called an okole puka more than once.......
9 October - One gets the idea that Swiftboat liar Jerome Corsi is running out of things to throw against the wall to see what sticks. The human face rash's latest conspiracy claim? That President Obama's wedding band is actually proof he's a Muslim!
"As a student at Harvard Law School, then-bachelor Barack Obama’s practice of wearing a gold band on his wedding-ring finger puzzled his colleagues.
Now, newly published photographs of Obama from the 1980s show that the ring Obama wore on his wedding-ring finger as an unmarried student is the same ring Michelle Robinson put on his finger at the couple’s wedding ceremony in 1992.
Moreover, according to Arabic-language and Islamic experts, the ring Obama has been wearing for more than 30 years is adorned with the first part of the Islamic declaration of faith, the Shahada: “There is no god except Allah.”
The Shahada is the first of the Five Pillars of Islam, expressing the two fundamental beliefs that make a person a Muslim: There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is Allah’s prophet."
"Egyptian-born Islamic scholar Mark A. Gabriel, Ph.D., examined photographs of Obama’s ring at WND’s request and concluded that the first half of the Shahada is inscribed on it."
Mark A. Gabriel is an interesting character. He's the writer of several anti-Islamic books, is heavily involved with Christian evangelicals trying to convert Muslims, and runs such a ministry himself. Furthermore, his wikipedia entry claims "a doctorate in Christian education and a master's in world religion from Florida Christian University in Orlando" Florida Christian University is an unaccredited school that has a reputation for being a "diploma mill".
If this is the quality of Corsi's "expert", the article is even more laughable than it seems.
“There can be no doubt that someone wearing the inscription ‘There is no god except Allah’ has a very close connection to Islamic beliefs, the Islamic religion and Islamic society to which this statement is so strongly attached,” Gabriel told WND."
World Nut Daily only has some small pictures of said ring, along with some "enhancements" that might look like (if you squint and the light is really bad that is. A shot or two of MadDog 20/20 might help as well) Arabic script. However, the Huffington Post reported on said ring on 18 March 2010
"…but what jumped out was that the president's band is actually "an intricate gold design from Indonesia." Well, that's a little more stylish than we thought! So we took a closer look, and you can too:"
Funny, looks like a simple serpentine pattern to me.
And the RAB Experience (a blog based in Sydney, Australia) also commented on said ring……on 30 October 2009.
"The New York Times magazine has a story on the "First Marriage" , and the story identifies that Barack Obama's wedding ring is not only gold, but that it is crafted in a traditional Indonesian style.
I wonder whether this gives more fodder to the birthers who seem to still be fascinated with whether or not Obama is qualified to be president as they dither between whether he was born in Kenya or Hawaii and whether the president ever held Indonesian citizenship or not as a boy (courtesy of his stepfather, Lolo Soetoro).
In any event, the fact that the "most powerful man" in the world is wearing a wedding band using an Indonesian design is a bit of an advertising and marketing scoop for Indonesian jewelry artisans everywhere. Perhaps, there may now be a run on wedding bands with an Indonesian design."
But never mind the fact that the ring and its design have been commented on before, Corsi has lies to spin and mud to sling!!
“Dreams from My Real Father” producer Joel Gilbert, an Arabic speaker and an expert on the Middle East, was the first to conclude that Obama’s ring, reportedly from Indonesia, bore an Islamic inscription."
Oh now Joel Gilbert is an "expert on the Middle East"?? REALLY??
Damn. Corsi is desperate here.
"As WND reported in July, previously published photos have shown Obama wearing a gold band on his wedding-ring finger continuously from 1981 at Occidental, through graduation at Columbia in 1983, in a visit to Africa in 1988 and during his time at Harvard from 1988 to 1991. But none, until now, have displayed the ring with enough detail to identify it as the one he currently is wearing."
Well, except the Huffington Post in March of 2010…
10 October - Obama Ballot Challenge's latest great idea - harassing the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors and pleading their eternal devotion to Joe Arpaio's divine light.
"This is something YOU CAN DO; it does not cost money, it is painless and you can speak out in the Sheriff’s behalf if you so desire. Do NOT MISS this opportunity.
The next Maricopa County Board of Supervisors meeting is Wednesday, Oct 17 at 9:00 am in the Supervisor’s Auditorium, 205 W. Jefferson, Phoenix. Attached is the speaker’s request form that needs to be filled out If you want to speak about your support for Sheriff Joe. Here is your chance to let the county board know how you feel. You will have two minutes so be respectful but speak your mind."
10 October - Boldly going where Charles Kerchner and the Article II Super Duper Extra Crispy PAC have gone before, Paul Irey and Douglas Vogt show their ad for the Washington Times.
(Google Doc link here)
The whole thing is a mess. Not only due to Irey and Vogt rehashing their long-since debunked claims, (not to mention jumping on the "Virginia Sunahara" conspiracy bandwagon), but the headline font is a throwback to the 60's, the spacing is a jumble, and the whole thing looks unprofessional as hell.
Amusingly enough, Vogt and Irey, who claim to be "two very experienced typographers" who are "halfway through a book on the subject." do things in the ad like misspell "Alledgedly", "attorny", "supoena", "reconize", "manualy", and "everthing".
I guess neither Vogt's experience as a copy salesman who writes books on Pyramid Power and the Secret Language of the Dead Sea Scrolls, and Irey's experience as a clerk-typist and "typographer", didn't extend to things like "spelling" and "grammar"
Then there's claims like:
"We reconize that forensic document examiners should be involved in this. Our group attempted to employ over 200 of the 2000 certified forensic document examiners in this country. All of them refused to even look at or discuss the Obama birth certificate. Excuses given were … "I do work for the government" or "I support Obama."
I suspect the truth was closer to they were laughed out of people's offices or told exactly how piss-poor their "claims" and "evidence" was.
10 October - Comments have been going down at Birther Report after the new commenting system went in.
But there's still a few gems.
"BirtherPro 22p · 2 hours ago Malcolm X

10 October - Oh dear. Dr. Orly is getting cranky. (malware and redirect warning)
(Bold face mine)
"This is crazy. I am trying to figure, what is going on. I am doing this between cutting crowns and bridges for my patients."
Your poor, poor, poor patients. Though I'm kinda curious just how you're doing this, since according to the Dental Board of California, your office license status is listed as "Delinquent", which is defined as "Licensee has failed to timely renew the license or failed to meet all requirements for renewal. May not legally practice in California until license has been renewed."
Hmmm….Wonder how Dr. Orly is getting around the fact she's, oh, I dunno, breaking the law???
"We asked for expedited trial in Indiana. We asked to bifurcate the case and conduct trial on the issue of declaratory relief and injunctive relief and hear all other causes of action later."
Why does this sound like "First the sentence, THEN the trial!"
"I have my CA state case before judge Sanders scheduled on the same day. Indiana is saying that the date is carved in stone, I will have to beg for Judge Sanders in CA to reschedule."
Oh shucky freaking darn?
"I will need all hands on deck and all the witnesses lined up. If Zullo and Arpaio are not responding again, I personally am coming to AZ to slap them silly and drag them to IN."
Oh now this I would pay good money to see. Dr. Orly assaulting a law enforcement officer (not to mention a "deputy") and then kidnapping him and crossing state lines with her abductees in tow.
Hope she likes pink underwear.
"I need people to contact all the witnesses and ask them to be there, this might be our only option to end this usurpation of the US Presidency and criminality and forgery. I will provide more info later. I will need any and all help I can get"
Yes. psychological help.
10 October - ConWebBlog points out to Joseph Farah just why people may think he's not a trustworthy news source…..
"WND's stable of Obama-hating obsessives have so dedicated themselves to bringing down Obama at any cost that they've made complete fools of themselves in the process and are too ethically challenged to admit it.
Jerome Corsi's birther conspiracy has completely collapsed -- so much that Corsi is pursuing a separate conspiracy theory that completely undermines it -- but WND has forbidden any mention of its collapse or of any of the writers who proved birthers wrong.
A news organization that cared about the truth would have reported all the birther facts, not just the ones that confirm its utterly discredited conspiracy theory. WND is not that organization.
And more Obama derangement pops up on WND every day. The latest example is an Oct. 9 article in which Corsi blows up blurry photos to make the purported claim that a ring Obama has worn reads "There is no god except Allah."
The fact that no sane person trusts WND is the fault of Farah and his stable of writers. Nobody else. It's too bad for Farah that he's so far down his rabbit hole of hate he can't recognize that."
