Apologizes for the delay. I wanted to include the report from the "boots on the ground" in Mississippi. And since fridays are my Curling League night, I didn't get home until very late.
Anyway, in today's dispatches, Amos Brown continues to taunt Dr. Orly. Birthers in a small red county? What a surprise! The Conservative Majority Fund comes back. Yet another death threat.
The Mario-written Vermont Birther Ballot Jihad gets booted again. The fun continues in Mississippi. Miki Booth and Al Hendershot join the sore loser brigade. More petition fun. Chris Farrell continues his blood-thirsty wet dreams against anyone he doesn't like.
Dr. Orly predicts revolt unless she gets her way. And Neo-Confederate Van Irion is all over the secession thing, showing he didn't learn from the last batch of confederates.
14 November - Amos Brown takes another potshot at Dr. Orly.
"It’s the biggest local mystery in years. Who recorded, leaked and uploaded a complete audio recording of a hearing in a Marion County Superior Court? That’s a question that judicial officials are investigating after Praiseindy.com discovered that the complete audio of a hearing held in Marion Superior Court 14 on October 22, 2012 had been posted on You Tube on November 1st.
Speculation is that one of or more of the plaintiffs involved in a case trying to erase President Barack Obama’s name off Indiana’s election ballot may have been responsible for illegally posting the audio on line.
Making public audio recordings of local court proceedings in Indiana violates Indiana judicial rules. Audio recordings of Indiana Supreme, Appellate and Tax Court hearings and trials can be made public, but only with the express approval of those courts. Local court proceedings are not to be made broadcast or posted on line.
Earlier this year a lawsuit was brought by so-called “birthers”; individuals who mistakenly believe that President Barack Obama wasn’t born in the United States and that an elaborate conspiracy and fraud has occurred."
14 November - CNN's Gary Tuchman goes to King County, Texas, where President Obama got five whole votes. (To Romney's 135 votes)
After you watch the video, you understand why. Yeah, there's some birthers too…..
14 November - Remember the "Conservative Majority Fund" and their birther TV ad?
""The movement to impeach President Barack Obama has been launched, just days after he won a second term in the White House.
The Conservative Majority Fund, a conservative group known primarily for its birther conspiracy spreading, has launched a robocall campaign to gin up support for the president's impeachment.
The call, emailed to The Huffington Post by Shaun Dakin of StopPoliticalCalls.org, reads in part as follows:
Our only recourse now is to move forward with the full impeachment of President Obama. We suspect that Obama is guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors and that there may be grounds for impeachment as is laid out in the constitution. Further, he may not even be a U.S. citizen because nobody, I mean no one, has seen an actual physical copy of his birth certificate. Impeachment is our only option. And Republicans are already considering Obama investigations. As the nation's most effective conservative group we are launching the official impeach Obama campaign.
Their website hasn't really been updated since August, and the latest posts on their Facebook page are from people complaining about their October robocalls.
15 November - And another death threat.
"A Florida man was arrested this November after posting threatening messages about President Barack Obama on Facebook. When Secret Service agents came to question 28-year-old Christopher Castillo about his violent comments, The Smoking Gun reports that the situation quickly deteriorated.
On Nov. 1, Castillo wrote the following on Facebook, apparently in response to Obama's views on health care:
That’s the last straw, if he gets re-elected I’m going to hunt him down and kill him watch the life disappear from his eyes.
Threatening the U.S. president's life is never taken lightly. After a tip-off from a concerned citizen, Secret Service agents arrived at Castillo's Melbourne home on Nov. 8 to investigate his intentions behind the Facebook post.
According to the felony complaint report filed by the Secret Service, an agent asked Castillo what his actions would be "if the President was standing here right now?" The angry man didn't hold back his opinions, replying he would “bitch slap him, and beat the shit out of him.” He also stated he would scream and call Obama a terrorist."
15 November - The appeal of the Mario Apuzzo-written Vermont Birther Ballot Jihad case gets the boot.
"Judge Robert Bent, in a seven-page decision filed Wednesday at Vermont Superior Court in Montpelier, ruled that the case brought by H. Brooke Paige of the town of Washington was improperly filed in state court instead of federal court, but lacked merit anyway.
“Mr. Paige’s lawsuit, interesting as it is for its extensive historical analysis, has no viability because he has no standing and the court has no jurisdiction,” Bent wrote. “It is dismissed in its entirety.”
Paige sought to have Obama’s name removed from the 2012 Vermont election ballot because he was not a natural-born citizen as required of presidential candidates in the U.S. Constitution.
Paige contended historical papers from the time the Constitution was written defined a natural-born citizen as someone who was born of parents who were American citizens. Obama’s father, now deceased, was a citizen of Kenya.
Bent cited a 2009 decision by an Indiana court that addressed a similar claim and concluded the natural-born-citizen challenge to Obama’s claim on the presidency lacked merit."
15 November - The Department of Health for the State of Hawaii responds to Dr. Orly's latest motion in Mississippi.
(Scribd link here)
"The Plaintiffs’ Opposition to the Defendants’ Motion to Dismiss is long on rhetoric but provides little substance to rebut the arguments in the Motion to Dismiss."
"These defects, coupled with the Plaintiffs’ failure to effectuate service of process, are fatal to their claims for relief, thus warranting a dismissal, with prejudice, of all allegations in the First Amended Complaint against the Defendants."
I suspect the taxpayers of the State of Hawaii wouldn't mind attorneys fees being levied against the plaintiffs either.
15 November - I think we can safely add Miki Booth to the "sore loser" brigade.
"Miki Booth shared a link.
Sheriff Joe Arpaio WAS REELECTED in spite of Soros' millions fed into Maricopa County to defeat him with communist plants. The 'birther' issue is NOT DEAD! NOT BY A LONG SHOT!! Watch out Hawai'i Health Dept! Annie Okole still has you in her crosshairs!"
1) Kinda threaty.
2) I still want to know why the wahine pupule is still calling herself "Annie Butt"
"Miki Booth shared a link via Jim Youngblood.
Mike Zullo needs to contact Senators and Congressmen and tell them to file a written objection with Joint Session of Congress regarding Arpaio's investigation. Zullo especially needs to contact Senator Tom Coburn. With Obama now re-elected, Coburn may be more willing to talk. I encourage all birthers to contact their senators and congressman and tell them to file an objection. If an objection is filed, Congress is CONSTITUTIONALLY REQUIRED and MANDATED to stop the election process and DEBATE and DEPOSE the issue. Congress CANNOT ignore the issue."
"Miki Booth shared a link.
Aren't you tired of the so-called experts skirting the obvious? Obummer's "Commie Czar" Panetta compromised the CIA and put Betraeus in as a patsy so he could move on to compromise every branch of the military. Every one of the joint chiefs (except the USMC) is a commie liberal democrat (damn I do tend to be redundant) and eager to work with the commie Sec of Defense."
I get the feeling that Miki's sole proof that the Chiefs of Staff are "commie liberal democrats" is that they haven't lead a military coup against the president.

Okay, all you guys that call yourselves Constitutionalists, Conservatives, Tea Party patriots and everyone that thought they were doing the right thing voting for the Republican nominee (including me) can tell the party of STUPID where to go! March on down to the election board AND CHANGE YOUR PARTY TO 'NO AFFILIATION' OR 'INDEPENDENT.' DO IT NOW - IT WILL MAKE YOU FEEL GOOD. YOU ARE NOT HELPLESS- YET!!!"
"Miki Booth shared a link.
about an hour ago
Everyone's help needed on this. Ditch the Republican party - change your affiliation TODAY! Be Independent - it will make you feel better after what the RINO'S did to us. How do you eat an elephant? One small bite at a time."
It says something about how rabid Miki has become when Oklahoma Republicans, (Oklahoma is the reddest of red states to boot), are too liberal and moderate for her tastes.
16 November - World Nut Daily breathlessly reports that someone did a "gasp" birther petition at Whitehouse.gov.
"The title of the just-launched petition is, “Require Barack Obama To Allow The Public Examination Of His Birth Certificate Records & His College & University Records.”
Specifically, it states: “We The People request the Obama administration to require Barack H. Obama to authorize the public examination of his birth certificate records together his college and university records. We have all seen the document produced by The White House which has been declared suspect by Sheriff Joe Arpaio, but The People request that Barack Obama authorize the State of Hawaii to release all related information concerning his birth in the State. We also request that Barack Obama authorize Occidental College and Harvard University release all records they hold in connection with The President. The People will willingly pay a reasonable fee for each page or document copied and provided by either entity in accordance with their standard fee schedule.”
Said petition currently has a whopping 3,460 signatures.
"The issue, of course, has been in the headlines since before Obama’s first election in 2008, when it was reveal there were unanswered questions, and logical suspicions, about Obama’s eligibility even to be president under the Constitution’s requirement that the president be a “natural born citizen.”
Well, in World Nut Daily's headlines at any rate. And then only after Joseph Farah decided to abandon their previous claim that the COLB was legit and there was no evidence to back the birthers claims, and go after the birther bucks themselves.
And in comments, irony, thy name is birther.,
"AuntieMadder Even if I could force myself to register with WhiteHouse.org (no can do, buddy), I'd not be willing to sign anything as full of mistakes (grammar, punctuation, etc.) and as poorly worded as this petition is. The creator of the petition means well, no doubt, but I prefer not to be represented by the semi-literate. (With so many highly literate "birthers," many with a background and/or education in journalism, in fact, it seems it's most often the semi-literate and the nearly illiterate among us who are first to put it in writing, so to speak [always posting or mailing without having the text checked for errors, by themselves or by others, of course]. I don't know why that is but I do know that it lends credit to the lie that "birfers our stooped.")
I trust the writer doesn't hang around many birther blogs, does she?
"Chuck Reed Impeach the impostor American who is in our white house! You just can't believe a dam word this nigger has to say!! If oBAMA said it was day time outside I would have to go to the window and look for myself, you just can't take his word for it and he is what we have running our country!!! Democrate or Republecan I know this is not what we want or need! He is from a for in power who wants to see us fall!!! I say IMPEACH oBAMA NOW and save our country now!!!!
Case in point.
16 November - Over at "Moralmatters.org", community college journalism major and so-called "La Legion Etrangere deserter" Chris Farrell pens a screed.
"Immediately following the questionable and highly flawed election [process] of Obama for a second tour of White House destructive “duty,” there has been the popular craze of petitions by citizens from the majority of states (within the United States) to secede (formally withdraw) from the United States."
Translation - "Wahhh! The scary black man was re-elected!! Wahhhh!"
"And now there are those who want to secede from the Union of States. To those who wish to take that course I ask, so you want to secede, huh?
Now you know how I felt in the courtroom in Tallahassee when the judge ruled that he couldn’t proceed against Obama’s name being on the ballot because Obama was not yet the ‘official’ nominee of the Democrat party.
Now you know how I felt when Judge Malihi in Georgia warned Obama’s attorneys not to appear ‘at their own peril,’ and when they didn’t he ruled in Obama’s favor anyway."
So basically "How DARE the courts follow the rule of law and demand actual facts and evidence!!! Don't they know there's an uppity darkie in the WHITE House!!!!"
"We the People of the United States of America demand the retro-active abrogation of the fraud and forger, the ‘Manchurian’ Muslim from Mombassa, Barry Soetoro, Soebarkha, who fraudulently represented himself through his own literary agent for over 16 years as having been born in Kenya. MR. OBAMA was in the commission of a crime when he was illegally elected. America is in the midst of a constitutional crisis of unparalleled magnitude: we have no legal sitting president or vice-president.
Obama needs to be taken into custody by the appropriate authority and debriefed. I understand water-boarding has proven highly effective with enemy agents of Islam."
So basically he's calling for the overthrow and torture of the legally and democratically elected President of the United States.
"Administrators at Occidental College, Columbia University, and Harvard Law School need to be tar’d and feathered for their complicity in the most sinister crime in American history. When Obama’s college records including those financial records which indicate the Islamist financing of his education are made public and it is clear that administrators at those institutions of higher learning have all along been aware that MR. OBAMA is now and always was constitutionally ineligible to be president, they must be made to pay and pay dearly for the crime of treason. Lest I forget, Governor Abercrombie of Hawaii should be sentenced to hang for his part in the crime."
Bloodthirsty son of a bitch, isn't he??
"Obama should be tried by a military tribunal for having also criminally usurped the military rank of commander-in-chief. "
"Why haven't we had a military coup?? I WANT MY MILITARY COUP DAMNIT!!!"
16 November - Dr. Orly is so ready for her revolt and military coup (Malware and redirect warning)
"I GOT A CALL FROM A 4 STAR GENERAL, HE CALLED CHIEF CLERK SUTTER AT SCOTUS YET AGAIN. A NUMBER OF GENERALS ARE NOW LIVID WITHSCOTUS FLAGRANTLY COMMITTING FRAUD AND TREASON IN MANIPULATING DATES AND NOT LETTING ME FILE PETITION FOR CERTIORARI REVIEW OF THE DC CASE OF OBAMA USING A STOLEN CT SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER (redacted). THIS WILL END IN A REVOLT
Posted on | November 16, 2012"
The few retired generals who have publicly gone full metal birther were never four-star. Either she's incorrect (likely), making things up (also likely), or trying to get someone to stage a mutiny.
16 November - Is this Dr. Orly's version of "the dog ate my homework"??? (malware and redirect warning)
"MY LUGGAGE IS MISSING. WILL HAVE TO APPEAR IN COURT IN JEANS. I DON’T HAVE MY PAPERS. WILL DO THE BEST I CAN WITH WHAT I HAVE
Posted on | November 16, 2012 "
You're trying to tell me she didn't have a briefcase with her so she could prep and do paperwork while the plane was in flight??
Yeah, pull the other one.
16 November - You can count Al Hendershot (formerly of the failed Alabama Birther Ballot Jihad case) as part of the sore loser brigade. As George Miller reports:
"It appears on these pages because Al waged a good fight, which was illegally dismissed, to keep Obama off the ballot. I’m not keen on begging the usurper for the right to secede, since he has zero legal authority. Even if he was an actual President, he couldn’t, but a usurper has even less authority."
By "illegally" Miller means "completely backed by state law and facts".
The petition is here.
"People of the State of Alabama who wish to create an independent and self-governing state separate from the Federal Gov.
Whereas, the subsequent re-election of Barack Hussein Obama and Joseph Robinette "Joe" Biden, Jr. to the offices of president and vice-president of the United States of America, by a sectional party, avowedly hostile to the domestic institutions and to the peace and security of the citizens of The United States of America and to the citizens of the great state of Alabama.
Do hereby desire secession from the union and the formation of an independent separate state.
The citizens of the great state of Alabama have the right to stand for their principles. That man is granted unalienable rights, which are not the dispensations of the government, but find their beginnings in God and come from God alone. These are the principles that our forefathers stood for, and so do the people of Alabama."
It's got a total of 7 signatures.
16 November - I guess it's not surprising that a Neo-Confederate like Van Irion would be all for the whole secession thing.
" Secession has been at the top of the alternative news this week and I think an important point is being missed in the discussion. Most of the talking points have been centered around whether or not secession is legal.
Now stop and think about this for a minute. The reason the petitions have begun is because we have a government that is acting illegally, with impunity, every day. What difference does it make if secession is legal? We have to follow the law and they don't? (In point of fact, it is legal to secede despite the flawed Supreme court precedent to the contrary.)
As Thomas Jefferson said, we must "separate from our companions only when the sole alternatives left, are the dissolution of our Union with them, or submission to a government without limitation of powers. Between these two evils, when we must make a choice, there can be no hesitation."
This is exactly the situation we are in. And we are in this situation because the states failed to follow Jefferson's advice and be "watchful to note every material usurpation on their rights; to denounce them as they occur in the most peremptory terms…"
In other words "Wahh, an uppity black man is STILL President! Wahhh! I can't handle that anymore!!!!"
"As of the writing of this letter, 6 of the top 20, and 16 of the top 40, petitions seek secession for their state. These petitions show the level of frustration we are feeling with our Federal government and give us an avenue to express it. I don't believe the White House will respond in any meaningful way to these petitions, but it is a way for Americans to make a symbolic stand. It is a type of 9/12 march on our capitol. Personally, I signed the petition for the state of Tennessee."
What a surprise.
"Here at Liberty Legal Foundation, we are investigating, discussing and weighing every available avenue for restoring rule of law in this country. We welcome your input and as always we press on…"
Said input being in the form of donations…..
16 November - Well, it seems that Thomas MacLearan couldn't be arsed to show up in a Mississippi courtroom today. But he's well enough to write for the Pest and eFail.:
"HOW MANY ARE INFECTED? by OPOVV, ©2012 (Nov. 16, 2012) — We hear about eradicating all kinds of things these days: polio, diphtheria, dysentery. The list is as endless as there are people, it seems. We thought smallpox was ancient history, but with all these nut cases running amok, you never can tell. When […]"
Rest behind paywall. Though I can say that MacLearan is definitely a carrier of stupidity.
16 November - Reality Check Radio talks to eyewitnesses from the Mississippi hearing today:
