In today's dispatches, well, it looks like the shock of election day has worn off, and the usual gang of idiots are looking at the fact they've got four more years of President Obama.
They don't take this very well.
Death threats, particularly in the comments at World Nut Daily, seem to be the order of the day. Not to mention secession demands by a very very small number of people. And an ongoing choir of "voter fraud" from people who can't seem to handle the idea that the majority of American voters really didn't want Mitt Romney in the White House. Not to mention a few butt-hurt videos and articles.
Also James Manning now thinks he's a prophet of God and that God really wants to see a shirtless Barack Obama. Dr. Orly doubles down in Mississippi. Larry Klayman alternates between racial slurs, legal fantasies, and revolt. Dr. Orly shows a poor knowledge of both American history, but Eastern European history as well. Walter Fitzpatick gives his followers a handy "how-to" guide to get law enforcement interested in them as well. Joel Gilbert plans to make "Steaming Pile of Lies: Electric Boogaloo". And Cody Judy is off in "lalala I can't HEAR YOU" land.
6 November - Former Libertarian turned far-right whack job Wayne Allyn Root talks about the upcoming Mitt Romney victory.
"The Romney landslide I predicted back on May 30th, and in the media virtually every day since then, is materializing. The signs are everywhere that Obama is enjoying his farewell tour. These are the last days of his political career. Read on and experience the signs of the huge defeat coming on Tuesday.
Protected by the biased liberal mainstream media and polls over-populated with Democrats (based on the 2008 election turnout), most Americans haven’t a clue of the trouncing Obama is about to experience on Election Day. As a matter of fact, I’ve been a guest on several liberal talk shows of late where they actually think Obama’s re-election is a lock. They see a light at the end of the tunnel, but they have no clue it’s a train bearing down on them. Tuesday night will be a very long and sad night for Democrats.
But it will be even worse for the media that has drank the Obama Kool-Aid. Chris Matthews and all of MSNBC’s hosts will need special medical teams standing by on-site and “permission to use electric shock” orders clipped to their clothing.
What makes me so sure of a Romney landslide? The signs are everywhere."
Yeah, about those signs……..
6 November - And yet another crank gets a Secret Service visit.
"The Coeur d'Alene man has a skeleton hanging with a noose with a sign stating, "I committed treason" hanging from his neck in his front yard on Pennsylvania Avenue. Below the skeleton is a headstone with "RIP Obama" on it.
It's not your average Halloween display.
McKay cites the attack on the U.S. Consulate compound in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11 as a reason behind the display. U.S. ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other U.S. nationals were killed during the attack.
"It's not racist; it's freedom of speech," McKay said of his display. "People should have a penalty for treason. Period.
"I'm concerned for America, and it won't be here much longer without change.""
7 November - Someone starts an on-line petition for Louisiana to secede from the Union. Again.
It's got about 17,000 signatures. Many of which aren't from Louisiana. Ignoring the fact that Louisiana tried this back in 1861 (how did that work out for them??), the total population of the state is 4.1 million. So around 0.41% have signed this silly thing.
8 November - James Manning preaches to President Obama. (and has a strong "blame the victim mentality")
Manning seems to think he's a "Prophet of God", and is claiming that President Obama will be "driven from the White House" by God.
1:32 - "You shall be driven from the White House, shirtless, with your pants sagging below your belt line, like many of the young boys in the ghettoes across America. You'll have on no shirt, you'll be shirtless, you'll be penniless, you will be without a family. You will not recognize or know who you are. Men will come up to you, on the street and call your name, and you will not be able to respond. God will wipe away from you of the the strength that Satan has given onto you, though the worship you have given him, the loyalty, the devotion."
2:19 - "the reason why God will do this is judgement, and his blood is against you. Mr. Barack Hussain Obama, the blood of Jesus is against you."
5:48 - "So God has sent me to say to you Mr. Obama, you're not going to leave on your own. You are an illegal, you are a usurper, twice now you have been illegally elected. You've causes a court, you've destroyed their ability to adjudicate. You've caused the congress to be afraid. In your wake their are murders, and deaths, there are people who have threatened with imprisonment, families and children have been threatened in the wake of your advent here in America, and your walk though the political aisles of our nation. People are afraid of you. The media is afraid to print the truth about you, and others are afraid to raise their voices"
6:35 - "Thusly, God has sent me to speak. You shall be driven from the White House. You shall be driven has a madman that goes out into the field and eats grass like an ox. You will not know, nor will you ever remember who you were and those who worship you. Their eyes will then be open."
7:38 - "But you see Mr. Obama, when God drives you out of that White House, that garden that your wife has planted in that White House lawn, you will be driven to other fields to eat like an ox, to eat like a mule, to eat like a pig, to root like a pig, and to quack like a duck. You Mr. Obama. And when all America sees this will know that there is a God in heaven."
9:19 - "You are indeed the son of Satan Mr. Obama, and I'm here to tell you that you are. But God will give you the confess your faults, and you can march your family out and go into a quiet place, quietly into the night. Or you can be rebellious and you can arrest me, or you can arrest others has you have done. Or you can threaten me, and the family and well being of others as well. And you can maintain the course you have now taken. But you see, your arms are too short to box with God. He will bring you low. You will walk out of that White House shirtless."
About this point he starts calling President Obama "Mrs. Jezebel". *Rolls eyes*
11:40 - "This God that I am speaking about, who will drag you from the White House, this God speaks, and men can live. He also speaks, and men lay down and die."
Kinda threaty at the end there, Manning.
9 November - In her Mississippi Birther Ballot Jihad hearing, Dr. Orly files a "Notice of Additional Evidence of Fraud" and asks for an "Emergency Evidentiary Hearing".
(Scribd link here)
The best gem of the lot?
"Papa testified that Obama's birth certificate cannot be genuine, that it is a forgery, due to the fact that Adobe Illustrator was created only about 10 years ago, it did not exist 51 years ago when Obama was born."
She's also upset that she's getting threatened with sanctions and fees.
"Shortly after the affidavit by Blake was made public by Taitz, Tepper emailed Taitz and other plaintiffs a proposed settlement offer, where he wanted Taitz not to make any "defamatory remarks" about defendants and their attorneys and pay $25,000 attorneys fees to Attorney Begley or otherwise defendants will go after Plaintiffs seeking a much higher amount. Considering the act that neither Taitz nor any of the Plaintiffs have states anything defamatory, that all of there statements were true statements based on sworn affidavits and neither have done anything frivolous to warrant any award of fees, Taitz believes that this "offer" was a form of intimidation, particularly an intimidation of co-plaintfffs and desire to silence Taitz and co-plaintiffs regarding modifications in the image of the alleged birth certificate, which was sent by Tepper to the director of Health Loretta Fuddy".
Let's see. You've accessed the defendants of treason, racketeering, forgery, fraud, and demanded sanctions and disbarment at the minimum. I'm trying to figure out where, other than Bizarro World, those WOULDN'T be considered defamatory?
Also a Memorandum in opposition to motion to dismiss.
(Scribd link here)
"It is clear that the state of Hawaii is run as a little incestral clique and corruption of so rampant that the Chair of the Democratic Party of Hawaii, current Lieutenant Governor could replace the provisions of the U.S. Constitution with the provisions of the Democratic Party in order to aid and abet Obama in defrauding the citizens of this nation and including the citizens of Mississippi."
"9. Defendants are stating that appearing in this case will take them away from their duties. If they believe that their duties constitute certifying and legitimizing computer generated forgeries while hiding the original document that they claim they have, then it might actually be in public interest to take them away from their duties for as long as possible, preferably for good."
Can we has sanctions now, please??
9 November - Some more people hop on the secession petition bandwagon. The funny/sad thing seems to be that they think if they can get 25,000 signatures, then the US Government MUCH consider their request. Furthermore, they seem to think these are official requests from the states, rather than grumpy sore losers online.
Alabama - 8,374 (0.17% of population)
Arkansas - 4650 (0.16% of population)
Colorado - 6277 (0.12% of population)
Florida - 8332 (0.04% of population)
Georgia (1) - 6471 (0.07% of population)
Georgia (2) - 5462 (0.06% of population)
Indiana - 6018 (0.09% of population)
Kentucky - 5990 (0.14% of population)
Michigan - 5381 (0.05% of population)
Mississippi - 6050 (0.2% of population)
Missouri (1) - 4872 (0.08% of population)
Missouri (2) - 4522 (0.07% of population)
Montana - 5112 (0.5% of population)
New Jersey - 4784 (0.05% of population)
New York - 5555 (0.03% of population)
North Carolina - 7400 (0.08% of population)
North Dakota - 4600 (0.7% of population)
Oregon - 5110 (0.13% of population)
South Carolina (1) - 5337 (0.11% of population)
South Carolina (2) - 5228 (0.11% of population)
Tennessee - 7073 (0.11% of population)
I think it's safe to assume the duplicate states have duplicate signatures. And not a single petition has a full percentage point of that state's population. For that matter, six of the states listed went to President Obama in 2012.
Sore losers much?? Though it's interesting to note that a tiny number of people in each state are so butt-hurt by President Obama earning a second term in office that they're willing to destroy the United States over it.
9 November - Larry Klayman has dreams of "Americans rising up forcefully but peaceably"
"With no racial slur intended, but only to employ the same lingo used sarcastically by many of Obama’s supporters to describe their past plight, if we do nothing and simply look to future elections to restore the nation, we will soon become the “new niggers,” relegated to the back of the bus – as the bus speeds away to quickly fall over the fiscal, social and moral cliff. "
Oh, I'm fairly sure that racial slur WAS intended.
"This is why we need to use peaceful and powerful means to fight against the evils of our corrupt government. One of these avenues is the Citizens Grand Jury, which I, as a Citizens Prosecutor, have empaneled in Ocala, Fla. On Oct, 29, 2012, the Citizens Grand Jury, after having evidence presented to it, voted unanimously on a true bill to indict President Obama and Vice President Biden on charges of treason for their having intentionally leaked classified national security information to boost their political fortunes in the Nov. 6 elections. This month, I will be returning to Ocala to seek the indictment of Obama for his having defrauded the American people with regard to his eligibility to be president. And, after that the Citizens Grand Jury will set its sights on Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Elena Kagan for Roberts having violated his oath of office in rendering a willfully illegal ruling in the case upholding the constitutionality of Obamacare and not disqualifying Kagan, given her conflict of interest. Kagan will be indicted for violating her oath of office and refusing to recuse herself from the case as required by the Judicial Canons of Ethics.
Once indicted, these corrupt officials will be arraigned and tried for their crimes. I am confident of convictions. More indictments of corrupt government officials and judges will follow."
Oh how cute. He's pretending his fake "grand jury" actually has some legal authority! Isn't that so precious?
"That is why God did us a favor this week. He made it crystal clear that We the People must rise up and not rely on a Republican Moses to deliver us from the bondage and slavery Obama and his rising tide of supporters have in store for us. If we do not forcefully but peacefully act now, our freedoms and our republic will soon die and go the way of ancient Greece, Rome and other lost civilizations."
Translation - "Wahhh! That uppity darkie WON!! I can't handle this!! WAHHHHH!"
10 November - Dr. Orly is over the moon at an on-line petition for the State of Texas to secede. (malware and redirect warning)
"Citizens of TX are signing petitions to peacefully withdraw from the USA, need some 25,000 petitions
Posted on | November 10, 2012 "
The petition is here . It's currently got 28,000, many of which are from outside of Texas.
Even if they were all from Texas however, (and ignoring the fact that the Constitution doesn't give states the right to secede, Texas has a population of 25.6 million. Which means this "petition" is around 0.11% of the total population.
11 November - Looks like Joseph Farah is going to play the "voter fraud" card.
"Am I suggesting that the recent presidential election was stolen through voter fraud and manipulation?
Without a doubt.
Do I have evidence?
Yes, I have plenty of anecdotal evidence to show that it was committed by one side in the election in various ways. And I am convinced that at least 5 percent of the Democratic vote can be attributed to fraud – illegal voters, illegal campaign contributions, rigged balloting, intimidation at the polls, you name it."
Note he says "anecdotal evidence". Problem is he then cites a September Columbus Dispatch article, Republican gains in Michigan, James O’Keefe's claims, and World Nut Daily's own attempt at donation fraud.
Nothing even close to hard evidence at all. All of which is quite questionable at best.
Oh, and he wants money
11 November - Dr. Orly really needs to study American History better. (malware and redirect warning)
"I came from Moldova, a country which successfully and peacefully seceded from the Soviet Union. So did 13 other countries,"
First off, the breakup of the USSR wasn't "secession". Most of those countries had been incorporated into the USSR by force.
Second off, peaceful?? You might try taking to the people in the breakaway region of Transnistria. Or the people who rioted in 2009 after the elections there.
"6 countries seceded from Yugoslavia"
Not peacefully though. As the people in Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia, and Kosovo can attest to.
And there's only five. Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Macedonia, Serbia and Montenegro, and Slovenia
"States can successfully and peacefully secede from the United States
Posted on | November 11, 2012"
States do not have the right of succession from the United States. Or else we would be talking about border policies with the Confederate States of America.
11 November - Walter Fitzpatrick provides an easy how to list to help interested parties get their OWN FBI investigation files.
"Go to your local Post Office. File your complaints by mailing them certified mail, return receipt requested.
File the original with FBI Director Mueller.
The complaint is “filed” once mailed.
File a copy of the complaint with the Federal Grand Jury where you live via the U.S. Attorney. There may be more than one.
The complaint is “filed” once mailed.
Send the filings certified mail, return receipt requested. Should cost you ’bout eleven bucks (’round $5.50 each).
If you can get others to join you, it’s better to do this as group. The larger the better!:
Of course. They have a vested interest in tracking militia and sovereign citizen groups.
"HERE ENDTH THE LESSON!"
Here continueth the insanity.
Oh, and former New Hampshire State House Rep Harry Accornero chimes in.
"Harry Accornero Says:
Sunday, 11 November 2012 at 15:14
Ok, so we lost the election. Are we going to continue to re-live it or are we going to re-group and move ahead? As I have said before, we need to think about a serious Third Party, one who believes in God, family and our Constitution. We need people who will not only talk the talk, but walk the walk. We need to elect those who will not comprise their values and are not afraid to speak out on issues even when it is not the popular thing, but is the right thing to do, and who will put principle above politics.
I believe there are many men and women out there who feel the same and are willing to support those who will stand for America. We may have lost a battle, but the war is not over. If we stand on our principles, put God, family and Country above all, we will overcome. Our country will be better for it and out children will know what freedom really is and how close we came to losing it. I don’t know about you, but I am not ready to look my children and grandchildren if the eye and say I gave up. America is too important not only to us, but to the rest of the world. We are the last haven of freedom…..It is still worth fighting for. I am asking you to hit your needs and seek God’s will for us as we go forward in HIS name…….
11 November - At World Nut Daily, Drew Zahn embarrasses himself.
"When Barack Obama said on the campaign trail, “Voting is the best revenge,” was this what he meant?
A quote allegedly by Obama senior adviser Valerie Jarrett has been spreading like wildfire online lately: “After we win this election, it’s our turn. Payback time. Everyone not with us is against us, and they better be ready, because we don’t forget. The ones who helped us will be rewarded; the ones who opposed us will get what they deserve. There is going to be hell to pay. Congress won’t be a problem for us this time. No election to worry about after this is over, and we have two judges ready to go.”
So where did this quote supposedly come from??
"Though repeatedly widely in hundreds of blogs and even the website of a Philadelphia newspaper, the original source of the quote appears to be a blog site called The Ulsterman Report.
Yet even “Ulsterman” doesn’t claim to have actually heard the words spoken.
The blog merely quotes an unnamed source called “Wall Street Insider,” who quotes an unnamed source in Chicago, who was quoting an unnamed representative from Jarrett’s office, who was allegedly quoting Jarrett."
So World Nut Daily feels a 1 November fantasy article by the completely untrustworthy "Ulsterman" is worthy of a "is this what he meant" article??
But then again, it's not like their audience cares much about "facts" or "reality".

Barack Obama will not become President in January. Mitt Romney will become President in January. Thank goodness there actually is a movie called Abe Lincoln in Ilinois. Barack Obama will become the laughingstock of the world by trying to slander the reputation of the star's son in law. His son in law is openly straight!

" crossforce start looking at the people around you. start with your family like i did the day is coming when some of those people will have to be cut loose like i did i have a brother who is a card carrying lib. he turned his back on his family, his church and his God. he married a woman who was even worse than him and they have a pack of spoiled brats that think the sun rises and sets on their nintendo. those people are 5th columnists and quislings. they will blindly accept whatever garbage the fascist regime feeds them and vomit it forth like a plague. they will do whatever they are told and most of them can't be reached anymore, their hearts have heardened like the pharaoh. at the end of days those same people, your brothers and sisters and cousins and nieces and nephews will be there to cheer when Christians are being led out to the chopping block for not taking the mark. including you nd the only way you will avoid this is to be come JUST LIKE THEM. and you will be lost. just like them. so if you value your soul your life and your family start cutting these people off from you now start cutting all ties with them. start avoiding them. stay away from them. don't speak to them. don't associate with them. if they ask you can be up front with them but you must be strong. these people are no longer your family or friends a choice must be made. and they already made theirs show less
@jakota, I agree with JPrimus in that hussein will not make it to the end of the 4 year term. He will do something that is so anti-American, and so egregious that most of the congress will try to stop him. Hussein will try to illegally shove his program or whatever it may be, down THEIR throats and will fail. But he will do something that is just unacceptable to all Americans, and will pay the price for it. I'm thinking impeachment, but there may be others who are thinking of another way to get him out of office. Either way, matters not to me, just so he is no longer the pres.
I suspect that the "another way" this idiot is talking about is an assassin's bullet.
When Americans decide they have had enough and decide to stand up to the Traitor in Chief, I they will not have to worry about our Military coming to Bambi's aid because they hate the Traitor. We only have to worry about the TSA, IRS, and Homeland Security, all ran by Bambi Puppets who are also our enemy. From time to time, the blood of Patriots and Tyrants have to stain our soil, in order to maintain our Freedom. That time is almost upon us again! Buy Weapons, Ammo, Food, Prepare!

11 November - Dr. Orly really doesn't have the first clue about how American Society or US law works (malware and redirect warning)
"Indeed, it takes a majority of states to dissolve the union, however one individual state does not need a concent of other states to peacefully secede. Additionally all 50 states no longer operate under the law and Constitution, all 50 states are under occupation with a foreign citizen with forged IDs in the position of the President. During occupation the rule of law no longer exists
Posted on | November 11, 2012"
First off, no single state has the right to secede. We had a civil war over that idea, and the secession states lost.
Second off, we're not under "occupation". We had a democratic election. President Obama won. If we were under "occupation", you would be in a military prison somewhere.
Third off, are you trying to say the "rule of law" no longer applies to you and your fellow birthers?? I'm sure the courts would LOVE to hear that the next time you decide to grace one of their courtrooms.
12 November - Van Irion agrees to have the appeal of his Arizona case dismissed with prejudice, in exchange for all parties paying their own costs.
(Scribd link here)
12 November - Gabe Zolna nurses his own butt-hurt.
Some interesting islamophobia here too.
He's subscribing to the "election fraud" claim as well, including the various right-lies we're seeing floating around about crashed planes and the like. Which I suspect is going to be the wailing from the far-right for the last four years, because it's easier to scream "fraud" then deal with the fact that the majority of American voters wanted President Obama for a second term.
After all, if your viewpoint has been rejected by the majority of American voters, it's easier to make excuses than realize your viewpoint is wrong.
12 November - After the stunning failure of his festering pack of lies, Joel Gilbert doubles down and announces a sequel.
"Gilbert started a direct-mail blitz over the summer and fall, mailing millions of copies of the film, he said, to voters in swing states all over the country. He would not specify how much the distribution of the free copies cost him.
"The publicity campaign of sending some free DVDs around the country was very helpful in getting media attention, including The New York Times, Media Matters, The Daily Beast, local TV stations nationwide," Gilbert said on Monday.
Gilbert said that there's more in the works — theatrical distribution and a sequel to the original film. "
Who's bankrolling him, Reynold's Wrap??
12 November - Even though he wasn't on the ballot, Cody Judy refuses to concede.
"Text 1-“The Nov. 7th,2012 SCOTUS letter means CODY ROBERT JUDY is still in the Presidential race of 2012 and has not conceded the race- it isn’t over- and Barack Obama has not cleared all the hurdles necessary to be President contrary to what the media would have you believe. You know the Electoral College vote has not happened!"
And just to underscore he's completely delusional:
"I imagine myself in George Washington’s army who crossed the frozen river in the dark of night after losing 13 battles, understanding that he had to win one to get more recruits and to give hope to those who believed in the principles of the Constitution that hadn’t even been written yet, and to quell the nay-sayers who had been doubting Thomas’s and watchers of his Revolutionary efforts. Hello Mitt Romney. How’s your campaign going- Billion dollars later.. And you lost.
If you could have seen the glory of America at a time even before the Constitution had been signed, and you were a “watcher”, how could you not send, how could you withhold a little bit of money to George Washington in order to get one of his soldiers out of the worn socks and boots as you saw the red snow that marked their way?"
But what he needs is….money. And a sugar daddy.
"My campaign needs laptop computers because ours are limping from being sabotaged, we need really badly to sure up our traveling expense account, completely depleted now. If I was called to Washington DC I’d be walking or hitching a ride.
Could I depend on Glenn Beck or Rush Limbaugh to get me to Washington DC because I have a case against Barack Obama not being qualified, or is their attitude one of .. “We’ll wait and see how the ruling goes first?” How am I supposed to feel about that? How do you feel? Is it just my problem?"
12 November - Drew Zahn further embarrasses himself by claiming that "many states want to secede from the US"
"Since WND first reported that residents in the state of Louisiana were petitioning to secede from the U.S., residents in over 20 more states have filed requests with the White House to peaceably break from the union.
Furthermore, the Louisiana petition has topped 14,000 signatures, more than halfway to the threshold needed after which the White House has pledged to respond.
And for Texas, one of the new states to join the fray, the signature count now tops 25,000"
Which means they're still less than 1% of the population of those states.
12 November - The BBC reports on the sore loser secessionists
"The appeals were filed on the White House's We the People website.
Most of the 20 states with petitions voted for Republican Mitt Romney.
The US constitution contains no clause allowing states to leave the union. By Monday night the White House had not responded.
In total, more than 20 petitions have been filed. One for Texas has reached the 25,000-signature threshold at which the White House promises a response.
The last time states officially seceded, the US Civil War followed."
