In today's dispatches, Birtherstan has gotten quite dull of late. Birther Report pimps an "impeachment" letter that turns out to be as fake as anything else the birthers hold to. More grumpy judges. Carl Gallups swings between reaching for anything he can and promising "any day now". Meanwhile, he's caught acting like a complete and total coward.
I give up on Dr. Kate. Reed Hayes may be the latest Birtherstan Great White Hope. We check in on Lawrence Sellin. And Rudy Davis is sinking lower and lower into the swamp of racism.
9 July - Birther Reports claims that Rep. Kenny Marchant (R-Texas), has confirmed that there are impeachment investigations against President Obama.
"There are currently investigations underway in the House, The Senate and at the FBI to gather as much information from the Administration as possible. I am involved with and support those investigations so that we can get all information about those that are responsible in order to hold them accountable. Namely, the President is under the most scrutiny and will have to face the truth of what we know to be fact in the many investigations."
The comments are pretty much "yeah, right, whatever."
"Dealio · 1 week ago
Those calling themselves congressmen/woman cannot investigate because they know they'd all be sent to prison, and then some. Nothing's changed, other than more are realizing we're going to have to end this ourselves. stockman and others are hiding with arpaio. Both sides (ourselves and them) know they're all guilty. Whatever is being said by any of them is simply buying the illegal soetoro more time, which means they're all lying and all are traitors."
15 July - The judge in the birther civil war between Dr. Orly and Philip Berg is really annoyed.
"Finally, the Court notes that the parties’ actions continue to highlight the Ninth Circuit’s concern, shared by this Court, that “the parties in this case have persisted in treating the courts as a public spectacle in which they repeatedly manifest their personal dislike for one another without regard to the truth or appropriate decorum.” (Mandate, Dkt. No. 609, at 5, n.1.) The parties’ unwillingness to heed the Court’s admonition to “focus on substantive matters and to stop all the bickering” continues to frustrate the pursuit of justice. (June 26, 2013 Order, Dkt. No. 640, at 2.)"
16 July - Just in case you wondered how far down the Obama Derangement Syndrome hole Carl Gallups and crew were? Well, now he's producing "Bible Codes"
He's quick to place a disclaimer though:
"Disclaimer: This information is simply for your observation. PPSIMMONS make no claims to its application to scripture or prophecy. We do not claim that Obama is the antichrist (yet)."
Notice the "yet". I rather suspect Carl Gallups is already long past that point in his own mind.
"We do not claim that the Bible Code phenomenon is a viable method in which to discern scripture messages. It simply is what it is … see with your own eyes."
Yes, I see the tendency for the paranoid and conspiracy-rattled to see patterns and linkages where none exist.
The article then becomes a startling and textbook example of confirmation bias.
16 July - Carl Gallups continues his fall down the Bible Code rabbit hole.
16 July - Speaking of Carl Gallups, I want to make note of this episode of "Reality Check Radio".
(MP3 here) Fast forward to about 64 minutes in.
You know how Carl Gallups likes to swagger like some internet tough guy and try and challenge the debunkers to call him up and refute the birther claims?
Well, "Reality Check" did just that. And what did Gallups do?
Shouted over him, muted his call, and then cut him off completely.
Wow. We know that Carl Gallups was all hat and no cattle, but this shows his cowardly behavior all too well
17 July - Rep. Kenny Marchant (R-Texas), is claiming that the impeachment letter posted on Birther Report and elsewhere is a…..surprise surprise…..forgery.
"After repeated mentions of impeachment, the letter cites “investigations underway in the House, the Senate, and at the FBI” regarding multiple recent administration scandals. “I am involved with and support these investigations…in order to hold them accountable. Namely, the President is under the most scrutiny and will have to face the truth of what we know to be fact in the many investigations.”
Aside from the giveaway illiterate phrasing, the paragraph is in boldface and highlighted.
“The letter floating around there was indeed altered from its original text and doctored-up,” Marchant’s legislative director, Scott Cunningham, wrote in an email. “We do not know who did this.”
The sites credit the letter to a poster using the name Dougster on a birther website called ObamaReleaseYourRecords.com."
Irony, thy name is birther……
17 July - ....any....day....now....send....money....
18 July - So I tried to wade though Dr. Kate's blog today.
I can't do it. It's become a mishmash of anti-Semitic raving, conspiracy claptrap, and racist screeds.
This is what hatred and paranoia create. In five years Dr. Kate went from a PUMA Hillary Clinton supporter to an avowed racist and conspiracy believer.
Come to think of it, it seems like few of the original birthers have fared well at all in the last five years.
Hate is corrosive.
20 July - At the Western Center for "Journalism", an outbreak of "any day nowism".
"There have been many lawsuits challenging Barack Obama’s eligibility to be President—most based on the fact that Obama is not a natural born citizen, his father being a Kenyan. Other lawsuits challenge the validity of Obama’s PDF long-form birth certificate, riddled with strange anomalies like multiple layers and eight different fonts.
The lawsuits have all crashed and burned in flames for two reasons: 1. The court hearing the lawsuits have treated the cases as a joke instead of a valid question of Constitutional requirements. "
The problem is that the lawsuits have BEEN a joke, rather than a "valid question of Constitutional requirements". This is what happens when you present lawsuits based upon disproven conspiracy theories and completely false claims.
"And 2. The plaintiffs haven’t had Reed Hayes on their side."
"Reed Hayes is a forensic document expert who may be the man who finally brings down the Obama administration."
Actually Reed Hayes ISN'T a "forensic document expert" He's a handwriting expert.
"In an extensive and scathing forty page report on Obama’s birth certificate prepared for the upcoming eligibility lawsuit before the Alabama Supreme Court"
How very funny. Hasn't Mike Zullo claimed that Hayes' "research" is the property of the Maricopa CCCP and wasn't to be released due to it being part of their "investigation??? He wouldn't have, oh, I dunno, LIED about that now, would he??
"You might be saying: Okay, there has been something like two dozens lawsuits. They’ve all failed. The court and Obama’s lawyers always deem any experts against Obama’s birth certificate as quacks. So what’s different this time?"
Nothing. He's a quack practicing a pseudo-science.
"Two words: Perkins Coie.
Sound familiar? It should. It’s the law firm that has represented Barack Hussein Obama in virtually every single eligibility court challenge.
And guess who has done extensive work for and testified on behalf of Perkins Coie?
Forensic document expert Reed Hayes, whose abridged list of training, experience, and court cases goes on for a dozen pages.
How will Obama’s lawyers discredit a forensic document expert that their own law firm extensively relied on?"
*Rolls eyes* A branch of Perkins Cole used Hayes once over a decade ago. And suddenly this means he's their latest Great White Hope??
I think they are massively overstating things.
"The gaggle of Perkins Coie lawyers will be arguing that Obama is eligible to be President before the Alabama Supreme Court, with none other than Roy Moore presiding as Chief Justice. Moore is a conservative and strict constitutionalist who has voiced his concerns in the past regarding Barack Obama’s eligibility to be President. "
Actually Perkins Cole isn't in that courtroom at all. President Obama isn't a defendant in that case. The Plaintiffs are avowed racist Hugh McInnish, and the defendant is the Alabama Secretary of State.
And while it's possible that Roy Moore and his protege on that court *might* go full metal birther, the fact is that they're not the only votes on that court. There are seven judges on that court. The article is high on "look! see! Any day now!! Honest!!!!" and short on anything like facts or reality.
It being the Western Center for Journalism, you get comments like:
July 20, 2013 at 2:59 pm
Just hang the sob and be done"
July 20, 2013 at 2:03 pm
Stop talking about it let’s get started and put obama and his band of treasonists on death row"
July 20, 2013 at 2:22 pm
We can hope Barack Obama is taken down, but the fact is he has Muslim judges in his control, those that have thrown case after case out of the courts. I tend to believe there is only one way to take him down, along with holder, Biden, Polosi, Hillary and all the other treasonous snakes. I think we all know what that is. I would love to see him indicted and imprisoned for life. Better yet, give Obama the penalty for Treason.."
July 20, 2013 at 3:03 pm
Any way he is taken out their will be blood shed but if that is what it takes so be it .I don’t believe they have any idea how many is willing to give their life to get him out ."
July 21, 2013 at 12:06 am
Good, I pray that they take Obama thru the wringer, strip him bare and expose the Gay Muslim Maggot for what he really is, an Islamic Jihadist working from the inside to destroy our great nation! Put the maggot, Obama, on Trial for Treason and Execute the Cockroach!"
YouTube comments aren't much better:
"deracinated1 19 hours ago
He's going to take the world to war on the command from Rothschild."
"hawklonewolf 1 day ago
LET GET ER DONE ! NOW ! BEFORE HE ASSASSINATES EVERYONE !"
"RyryYoyo1 1 day ago
Get that nigger & killhim!"
Looks like the Secret Service needs to be making a few visits.
20 July - George Miller seems to think that Reed Hayes is their newest Great White Hope.
Note the part I've bold faced though:
"We have written about this before, but it bears repeating. Not only have numerous experts ruled the so-called birth certificate a fraud, but a contract document expert who often works for Perkins Coie, Obama’s law firm which defended him in numerous eligibility lawsuits, is agreeing. This is DEVASTATING, but MSM and politicians’ lips are sealed.
Real patriots- spread it far and wide. Refuse to acknowledge “Obama” or whoever the hell he is , as President, since he is NOT. DEMAND action by officials or take it into your own hands. Unfortunately, low information voters, knee-jerk Progressives, racists and voter fraud got the imposter a second term, but we can make it an extremely rough and short one for him.
Thanks to patriots who previously exposed the faux “birth certificate” and other false documentation, as well as natural born Citizenship facts and laws, long before this."
Miller seems more than a bit threatening in this one.
22 July - My how the mighty have fallen, as Lawrence Sellin falls to the point he's now writing guest editorials for Linda Bentley's "Sonoran News". From AP military expert to writing for the electronic birdcage liner of a C-level birther.
And it's interesting that he still uses the picture of him in uniform. Even though he was retired after his PowerPoint meltdown.
For example, "Obama’s war on the First Amendment" (26 June 2013)
"Obama is intentionally using the military as a cultural test bed in his campaign against the First Amendment. Because the military operates under its own legal structure, the Uniformed Code of Military Justice, Obama can more easily introduce policies that are destructive to the First Amendment as a springboard to an eventual broader implementation of free speech restrictions, suppression of traditional Judeo-Christian values and the fostering of Islamic law on American society as a whole."
"The federal government has become a threat to the survival of our republic. Only an immediate, nation-wide, bottom-up, public resistance to Obama’s radical policies by patriotic Americans will preserve liberty."
Or: "Only two paths left for the United States" (3 July 2013)
"Nevertheless, presumptive potentates like Obama will learn that conquest is easy, but control is not. In the absence of representative government, Americans opposed to his radical progressive policies will increasingly defy federal authorities widening the gap between the rulers and the ruled. That will cause political if not geographic fragmentation of the country, raising the potential for violent civil conflict.
Alternatively, if, by some happy accident, he is exposed for the fraud, criminal and anti-American that I believe he is, Obama will go down, but he will take the Republican Party with him. That is why the Republicans are so reluctant to mount any major challenges to him. They are as complicit as the Democrats in the corruption that permeates Washington DC. The Republicans have made themselves willing subordinates to the Democrats and eager accessories to a criminal political enterprise in order to gather up the table scraps of power by assuming their role as the faux opposition and, thereby, providing the illusion of democratic government.
Both Democrats and Republicans prefer to risk the survival of the country than risk the truth.
American patriots, who want to restore the Constitution, establish political and fiscal sanity and ensure the return of honest, lawful, representative government, can only welcome Democrat-Republican mutually-assured destruction.
That scenario provides the one remaining opportunity for genuine reform. An American Renaissance can materialize, but only after the vermin infesting our political system have been eradicated."
Notice the loaded buzzwords like "violent civil conflict", "Democrat-Republican mutually-assured destruction" and "vermin infesting our political system have been eradicated". Sellin isn't stupid, he knows exactly what dogs he's whistling to.
And last but not least:
"U.S. government seceded from the American people" (17 July 2013)
"Republican leaders neither contest that view nor vilify their Democrat counterparts because they do not want to beat the ruling class, they want to join it. The GOP leadership has gradually solidified its choice to no longer represent what had been its constituency, but to adopt the identity of junior partners in the ruling class. By repeatedly passing bills that contradict the views of Republican voters, the leadership has made political orphans of millions of Americans. In short, at the outset of 2013, a substantial portion of America finds itself un-represented, while Republican leaders increasingly represent only themselves.
The differences between the Bushes, Clintons, and Obamas are of degree, not kind. There is now a sharp division between the bipartisan ruling class and the rest of Americans, who are considered retrograde, racist, and dysfunctional unless properly controlled by the dictates of central authority.
The federal government has become an entity unto itself operating outside of Constitutional constraints and accountability to the American people.
The conflict of interests between the rulers and the ruled represented by the corrupt political status quo is unsustainable. A clash of historic proportions is inevitable."
No matter what fish wrap Sellin is reduced to writing for, the theme remains the same - Sellin pounding the drums of revolt and rebellion, over his own delusion and paranoia.
22 July -....any....day....now....VIPs....any....day....high…..ranking....congress....several months away....any…..day....please....send....money....
Does he just pre-record these, knowing the birtherstani shills won't question him?? And seriously, just how many times can they continue to play Lucy and the football to the Birthers Charlie Brown???
22 July - Rudy Davis defends into the raw sewage that is holocaust denial.
Just when you think he can't become even more of a racist scumbag, he manages to do just that.
