In today's dispatches.......Aww, let's face it. Birtherstan has gotten dull, dull, dull, dull. There's nothing new or exciting anymore, just increased insanity and constant whining that the scary black guy is STILL President. There's a lot of recycling though, and flashbacks to the glory days of 2009-10 when it seemed there was a (losing) lawsuit every minute and "...any day now...." didn't have that sobbing note of desperation it has today.
Unlicensed pastoral "therapist" and internet bully Sam Sewell whines that the birtherstani can't get people out on the streets. Disbarred former attorney Montgomery Sibley can't get the courts to believe his crap. Parodies sound more like World Nut Daily anymore. Larry Klayman and Dr. Orly have it out.
Gabe Zolna has a sad. Disbarred attorney Philip Berg is still grifting the birthers. Rudy Davis makes the news. Dr. Orly gets told "no" by a judge. Lawrence Sellin is selling old birther claims, and American News warms over leftovers.
21 May - Awww... Unlicensed Pastoral "therapist" Sammie has a sad.....

Rhoda, it's depressing to know that more Obots showed up in Philly than patriots in D.C. I had high hopes that Sheriff Arpaio would see that tactical advantage of a mass demonstration on the mall and use the impetus to finally release the information that we all know is coming. But I believe that when he saw the poor turnout and the media blackout, he backed off. For the life of me I can't see the advantage to waiting much longer!! We are well past the March deadline; the Obots are over at Faggy's place smirking contentedly. Just once I'd like to smear those smug smiles right down their throats. Just ONCE!!!! C'mon!! It's been six years!!!!"
28 May - Disbarred ex-attorney Montgomery Sibley has a sad. Seems the court rejected his pimping of Martha Trowbridge's Elizabeth Duke theory. Prompting him to whine:
"Hence, this blog which has been my “Reflections on the Growth of Legal Tyrants and a Justice System Which Has Evolved to Threaten – Rather than Protect – Our Liberty” is coming to a close. I have a few more things to say, but it is now clear to me that the Justice System is no longer threatening our liberty, but indeed has now completely revoked that Liberty won at such a high cost and has now insulated themselves from any consequence for their unconstitutional and indeed immoral actions."
"WAHHHH!! None of the courts BELIEVE the ramblings of a disbarred ex-attorney with delusions of grandeur !! WAHHHHHHH!!! Why won't they believe my half-baked legal theories???? WAHHHHHH!!!!!! Don't they know how big my balls supposedly are??? WAHHHHHHHH!!! DON'T THEY KNOW WHO MY ANCESTOR WAS???? WAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!"
28 May - For some reason, this "World News Daily Report" article reads like Chief Editor Korir and Lucas Smith had a love child.
"Nairobi| The Office of the Principal Register of the Nyanza Province, in Kenya, has finally released 11 exclusive documents concerning Barack Obama’s alleged birth and early childhood in the country. These official papers had been requested for years by the Tea Party Patriots, an American conservative organization, to no avail, but the Kenyan Supreme Court recently ordered authorities to release the documents, based on a law on “access to information. These files, if they turn out to be verifiable, could mean that Mr. Obama had no legal right to become the American president under the country’s law.
The papers released today suggest that Barack Obama was actually born on March 7 1960, in Lamu, Kenya, more than a year before his father moved to Hawaii, where he allegedly met his mother. This contradicts most of the documents presented by the presidential office over the last years, suggesting that either the American or the Kenyan papers are actually fakes.
The official version of Barack Obama’s birth presented by the White House in the past, was that he was born on August 4, 1961, at the Kapi’olani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital (now called the Kapi’olani Medical Center for Women & Children) in Honolulu, Hawaii. His parents were Ann Dunham, from Wichita, Kansas, and Barack Obama, Sr., a Luo from Nyang’oma Kogelo in the Nyanza Province, in what was then the “Colony and Protectorate of Kenya”. Mr. Obama Senior was attending the University of Hawaii at the time, where he supposedly met Ms. Dunham."
"World News Daily Report is an American Jewish Zionist newspaper based in Tel Aviv and dedicated on covering biblical archeology news and other mysteries around the Globe.
Our News Team is composed of award winning christian, muslim and jewish journalists, retired Mossad agents and veterans of the Israeli Armed Forces."
And some of their other headlines are things like:
American HAARP Project Blamed for Recent Earthquake
Mythical Island of Lilliput Finally Rediscovered
God Shows Support During NRA Rally
CIA Reveals Nazis Murdered Tesla, Stole Death Ray Technology
Nostradamus Expert Claims Putin Could be Third Antichrist
So basically only the really stupid, paranoid, and/or gullible should believe anything on that site.
I'm sure the Birthers will be all over it as a result.
29 May - So which birthers fell for the World News Daily Report piece??
Stormfront Lite Birther Report did.
It took them a while to notice the fact that it's a parody site too. Which didn't stop the increasingly homoerotic fantasies of most of the inmates there.
Though a few ironies did poke though:
"Miki Booth · 20 hours ago
Credibity problem: Tea Party Patriots NEVER ventured into the realm of oblowme BC fraud."
Miki Booth complaining that ANYONE has a "credibility problem" is rather funny. And funny, I've been a lot of teahaddists go full metal birther. Not to mention it was the Surprise! (AZ) Tea Party who started Joe Arpaio and Mike Zullo down the road to birtherstan.
Of course, between the blind racism and homoerotic rants, there's gems like:
"John_D_59p · 16 hours ago
Other possibilities... Obama might be an agent of --
1) the British Freemasons and British Jesuits - or,
2) the Vatican Jesuits together with the Freemasons who have infiltrated the Vatican.
Possibly they're all working together, to topple *both* Putin's Russia and America.
Shrimpton writes about the Secret German 'DVD', which Strunk seems to indicate is a branch of the Jesuits. Is Shrimpton one of them, tasked with spreading diversions and smoke-screens, or is he only exposing them? "

Let Birther Report know you don't appreciate satire posted on this site. Note at the top of the page it tells you this is fake to start with. Not saying it isn't true but it comes from a satire website. (website that makes up stories)"
You mean like Birther Report does?? At least World News Daily Report ADMITS they make stories up!
10 June - Well, in a matchup between the Nitrous Queen and Larry KKKlayman, we have a winner in this cage match of attention whores.
(Bold face mine)
"Almost immediately after announcing Mr. Klayman's engagement, Klayman and OBC were attacked by CA "Birther" attorney Orly Taitz and Judicial Watch, the latter in the form of Constance Ruffley, West Coast office manager. She fed Taitz a combination of outright lies and half-truths about Klayman and OBC principles, which Taitz then blogged and broadcast as widely as she could. "
Because, after all, we ARE talking Dr. Orly.
"Klayman and Obama Ballot Challenge immediately protested. Klayman was simply blown off by Judicial Watch, while OBC engaged Taitz in multiple fruitless conversations, pointing out her lies and deceptions."
As opposed to George Miller and Larry Klayman's lies and deceptions?? NONE of them would know the truth if it came up and started to dry-hump their leg.
"At one point Taitz stated that she was entitled to all donations for eligibility cases, an amazing sense of entitlement."
Well, yeah, but we're talking Dr. Orly.
Are you surprised??? You shouldn't be, debunkers like me have been pointing this out to you since, oh, December of 2008....
Not that Klayman is any better.
"The upshot of all this is that donations plunged and Klayman's future prospects were clouded, so this legal vindication against the firm whose motto is "Because no one is above the law" is extremely welcome. The money sure helped, too, although the cases suffered grievously and others planned never materialized. The CA case had to be litigated pro se by one of the plaintiffs."
All that meant is that you didn't have to pay someone to help you fail in the courts, you managed to do it on the cheap. Unless the entire point was to try and get some of those sweet, sweet birther bucks.
And, of course, the most important part to Sammie Sewage.
"Reverend Sam Sewell of Naples FL was the Project Director for Florida Ballot Challenge. “We had a very gratifying flow of contributions until the rumors and slander began. Very quickly the fund raising went from a flow to a trickle. Individuals who had contributed thousands of dollars of ‘seed money’ were left with no backup for their considerable investment.” He documented the plunge in funds flow, which Klayman was able to correlate to the illegal and defamatory actions of Taitz and Judicial Watch. "
Translation - They were fighting to see who got to pick the pockets of the birtherstani faithful.
"OBC editor and staffer Miller published an open letter to Taitz and the public citing the offenses and general impact on the cases, demanding a cessation and apology for the defamation, which could have avoided litigation, but was ignored."
Oh, I'm sure it got a few "SCREEEECH How DARE they be asking of me, ME, Dr. Orly Taitz, an apology! I AM NOT TO BE APOLOGIZING!! I AM THE RIGHTFUL BIRTHER QUEEN AND ALL BIRTHER BUCKS BE BELONGING TO ME ME MEMEMEMEMEMEMEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!"
17 June - Shorter BarbWire article: "Wahhhh! What do you mean that scary uppity darkie is STILL THERE????"
In the midst of all the other right wing freak outs that failed to gain traction, (Benghazi? check. VA? check. Bergdahl? check. "Wahh, why wasn't Clinton thrown out of office?? check. "Manchurian Candidate"?? check.), we have this day trip to Birtherstan.
"Many intelligent, honest people have serious doubts that Obama is even a U.S. citizen!"
If by "intelligent, honest people", you mean "delusional, conspiracy-addled liars", yes.
"He says he was born in Hawaii; however, there is evidence that he was born in Kenya. Why not remove all doubt and provide original documents to prove his birthplace?"
He has. Repeatedly. The State of Hawaii has confirmed them as authentic. (Full Faith and Credit clause anyone??) But, of course, it's not good enough for the Birtherstani.....
"There is evidence that he traveled to Pakistan on a passport that reveals his true place of birth but he refuses to provide the documents."
There is?? The only "evidence" I've ever seen is the nonexistent "travel ban".
"He refuses to provide the information about his education at Columbia and Harvard. Is he concerned about his poor grades or would the documents reveal he was a student from a foreign nation? I don’t know but Obama could easily settle the issue by surrendering the documents."
"Why won't that uppity boy show us his papers like a good darkie?? What's he trying to hide???
"Moreover, Donald Trump has offered to give $5 million to Obama’s favorite charity if he reveals his school and passport records. What reason could Obama have for not doing so unless it is fear?"
Maybe because he knows damn well there's nothing that would satisfy a certain tribble mobility scooter attention whore???
Oh, and the author of this piece of tripe??
"Dr. Don Boys is a former member of the Indiana House of Representatives, author of 15 books, frequent guest on television and radio talk shows, and wrote columns for USA Today for 8 years. His shocking book, ISLAM: America's Trojan Horse!; Christian Resistance: An Idea Whose Time Has Come–Again!; and The God Haters are all available at Amazon.com.

Ah, so a right-wing conspiracy bigoted nut job. Got it.
19 June - On 23 April, Doc Conspiracy noted that former Surprise! (AZ) Teahaddist and Maricopa CCCP member Brian Reilly had filed a complaint with the Arizona Corporation Commission regarding certain problems with the Maricopa CCCP's registration and the fact that some very important information is missing or falsified.
Yeah, like the idea that Joe Apraio and Boy Defective Mike Zullo would lie is such a shock. I suspect two of the reasons why some of the info is hidden is to hide the involvement of Joseph Farah and Human Face Rash Jerome Corsi, and to cover up the Maricopa CCCP use of public money for their birther jihad.
Anyway the Phoenix New Times covers this story as well.
"The latest annual report and disclosure statement from the Cold Case Posse, filed with the state on Monday, lists the bad address. As in other corporate filings, the posse's statutory agent, Birther-in-Chief Mike Zullo, lists his own address as the 19th-floor headquarters of the Sheriff's Office at 100 West Washington Street, which apparently isn't valid, either.
On Wednesday, the Corporation Commission made the decision to put the Cold Case Posse in delinquent status and give it 60 days to cough up the correct info.
Arpaio's office wasn't aware of the pending dissolution status and had no comment on Wednesday. Zullo didn't return a voicemail left for him at the Sheriff's Office.
As the April "conspiracy" blog post shows, nonprofit-corporation paperwork obtained by Reilly had the addresses of all the Cold Case Posse's primary contact and managers blacked out.
This is one posse that doesn't want to be found. But unless it complies with the law, it may soon be a posse no more."
Now the whole point of the corporation filing is to take donations, (so they can claim that they're not using taxpayer money). It would be interesting to see if they comply or not. Mind you, it's not like Arpaio or Zullo let things like "laws" or "ethics" bother them much.
19 June - Updated my "Cast of Characters" list, added Adrian "A.R." Nash, Nancy Ruth Owens, and Rick A Hyatt to it. Separated out the really crazy birthers into their own section.
12 July - Gabe Zolna goes into a screaming frothy rant.
Oh, and he waves his guns around
13 July - Gabe Zolna claims to throw in the towel.
Basically Zolna is upset (around 1:48) that there hasn't been a military coup to get the Scary Black Man out of the WHITE House. Which goes into a paranoid/depressed rant about how the world is falling apart due to the Scary Black Man and the conspiracy behind him. (Followed by another wish that the Military would stage an unconstitutional military coup)
16 July - Gabe Zolna and his dog buddy plan to write a book.
15 July - Haven't heard from disbarred attorney Philip Berg in a LONG time....
19 July - So let's see. Open Carry protesters.
In Dealy Plaza with long guns. Tacky at best.
And who's there with them? Oh, look, it's open racist, birther, and geo-centricist Rudy Davis!
23 July - Rudy Davis makes Talking Points Memo.
A group of open carry gun activists who protested Saturday at Dealey Plaza in Dallas filmed a bizarre, more-than-10-minute video of their demonstration and posted it to YouTube.
One activist appeared on camera to explain that the group, which the Dallas Observer identified as Come And Take It Dallas, gathers every third Saturday of the month to pass out Second Amendment literature. The same speaker then went on a rant against foreigners and refers to President Barack Obama as a "usurper foreigner" born in Kenya.
Later, the camera focused for an extended period on a preacher who was sharing the Grassy Knoll with the activists. The person behind the camera can be heard repeatedly saying "Amen" in response to the preacher's condemnation of a "sexual charged society."
24 July - Americans Against the Tea Party talks about Rudy. And his massive stupidity.
"Now, for a group of people protesting the imaginary gun-grab by the government, they are really worried about foreigners as you can see from this rant from a gentleman name “Rudy”,"…Especially these folks from Britain. Now I have some good friends from Britain, but I’ve talked to a lot of people from Britain that don’t celebrate July the 4th, and they, they, just because you gave up your guns in Britain, and just because you gave up your guns in Australia, don’t mean we’re gonna give up our guns in America, we ain’t givin’ up our guns, no matter what, we understand what freedom is all about, and Americans don’t follow the rest of the world, America was a shining city on a hill that everybody else followed*, and so I don’t care what you did in Britain and I don’t care what you did in Australia, we ain’t givin’ up our guns and I hope you get that right, and I don’t care how many false flags you set up, I don’t care how much propaganda Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, that usurper foreigner president, you worry about foreigners coming over the border, we got a foreigner as President! We got a foreigner that was born in Kenya with an illegal birth certificate and you guys are worried about foreigners coming over the border! The bottom line is, we’re not givin’ up our guns, this is America, this is um, you know what freedom is all about, and, uh, that’s why we’re down here."
Rudy seems confused by the idea that people outside of the United States don't celebrate the Fourth of July. Then again I suspect Rudy is confused by bubble wrap.
25 July - Having completely failed in the courts, Ed Noonan decides to go with an old birther stand-by - make up your own court and grand jury!
(Scribd link here)
He's demanding the appearance in front of his own version of the Fantasy Tiddlywinks League President Obama, Vice-President Joseph Biden, California Governor Jerry Brown, California SoS Debra Brown, and every single California Supreme Court Judge, 3rd District Court of Appeal Judge, Sacramento Superior Court Judge, and 9th District Court of Appeals judge, that ruled against him in his previous cases.
The first 16 "counts" are basically a hit parade of Birther Golden Oldies, and at "count" 17 and 18, a "dammit, we told that BOY to get his black ass in here and show us his papers!"
"17. On or about January 6, 2012 Mr. Soetoro (aka Obama) was given a chance to appear in Sacramento Superior Court and present proper documentation to prove that he is indeed a citizen of the United States and/or also present an argument to the Judge why a Natural Born Citizen could be an illegal alien or why a bastard child without a U.S. Citizen father could be
considered to be a “natural born citizen.”
18. However, Mr. Soetoro (aka Obama) refused to address his questionable citizenship issue and instead had his illegal GOVERNMENT ATTORNEYS to present technical arguments on whether or not the Secretary of State Debra Bowen had a constitutional duty to uphold the constitution"
As for the judges:
"25. Title 18 › Part I › Chapter 47 › § 1015 states:
26. (a) Whoever knowingly makes any false statement under oath, in any case, proceeding, or matter relating to, or under, or by virtue of any law of the United States relating to naturalization, citizenship, or registry of aliens; . . .
27. Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than five years, or both. . .
28. All judges that allowed false statements to stand in their courtrooms regarding the undiscovered and unproven citizenship of Mr. Soetoro to be unchallenged have conspired to commit a felony as per Section 1015 as noted above."
Basically "Damnit! Why didn't you do what we told you to and get that uppity darkie out of our WHITE House!!!!"
"63. The California Citizen Grand Jury hereby places all Justices named under common law citizen’s arrest and indict them for above said felonies.
64. The California Constitution is clear and mandates: “ (a) A judge is disqualified from acting as a judge, without loss of salary, while there is pending (1) an indictment or an information charging the judge in the United States with a crime punishable as a felony under California or federal law,
65. If any of the above mentioned judges wish to appeal the indictment of this Citizen Grand Jury, they need to appear at a 9:30 on August 19, 2014 at the 3rd
District Court of Appeals in Sacramento CA. (EDWARD C NOONAN et al., Plaintiffs-Appellants, v. DEBRA BOWEN, as Secretary of State, etc. et al, Defendants-Respondents).
66. All above defendants have until this above said date to review their past performance (OR LACK OF PERFORMANCE) in the matter of the non-vetting of an illegal alien to hold the office of the President of the United States."
Yeah, good luck with that, skippy.
25 July - Dr. Orly gets another smack down.
(Scribd link here)
One gets the feeling the judge is less than impressed by Dr. Orly.
"My judicial appointment is a matter of public record. Yet, despite Ms. Taitz’s training as a lawyer and her repeated involvement in litigation challenging President Obama’s eligibility to hold office, she asserts that it was only after my dispositive ruling in favor of her adversary that she “decided to check who appointed” me and “found out” that it was Barack Obama. Plaintiff easily could have considered, discovered, and raised this issue during the pendency of the case, and before I ruled. See Rhodes, 670 F. Supp. 2d at 1373 (involving, inter alia, a similar recusal motion filed by Ms. Taitz and stating: “Counsel had ample opportunity to seek removal of the undersigned prior to the undersigned’s devotion of substantial time to this matter.”). What seems more likely is that Ms. Taitz is attempting to manipulate the system, by strategically resorting to the tactic of filing such a motion because she is disgruntled with the outcome of the case. See, e.g., Rhodes, 670 F. Supp. 2d 1363 (involving Ms. Taitz’s recusal request and accusing the judge of treason); Cook v. Simtech, Inc. , 09-cv-1382 (M.D. Fla. 2009) (involving a recusal request by Ms. Taitz)."
And it gets better:
"Ms. Taitz has not provided any legal authority for the proposition that, if the President were removed from office, this judge or the hundreds of other executive and judicial branch appointees selected by him and then confirmed by the Senate would also become disqualified from their offices. I suppose that if the Court ruled that SSA’s search was inadequate, and if SSA conducted a new search, and if SSA located an SS-5 for Mr. Bounel (who may or may not exist), and if the Court ordered SSA to release the SS-5 (despite the several FOIA exemptions that may apply), and if Mr. Bounel’s SSN matched that of President Obama, and if President Obama’s use of the SSN was fraudulent, and if the reason for the fraud was that President Obama was not eligible for the presidency, and if that led to the nullification of President Obama’s presidency, and if that also rendered President Obama’s judicial appointments null and void, and if no action was taken to re-appoint and reinstate the affected judges, then, perhaps, it could be said that I had an interest that was affected by the outcome of the case. But, that possibility is so speculative and so attenuated that it does not mandate recusal here."
And one final swat:
"Plaintiff can rest assured that if any reasonable grounds existed for me to recuse myself from this case, I would have done so, if for no other reason than to avoid spending precious time on such frivolous filings. But, my responsibilities require me to handle dutifully the cases assigned to me."
28 July - Lawrence Sellin is rehashing warmed-over Berg droppings.
"In 1966 or 1967, Stanley Ann Dunham married Indonesian Muslim Lolo Soetoro, who adopted Obama, which made him an Indonesian citizen according to Indonesian law. Elementary school records in Indonesia list Obama's name as Barry Soetoro, his religion as Islam, and his citizenship as Indonesian. Because Indonesia does not allow dual citizenship, Obama thus lost his U.S. citizenship (if he even had it) when he became an Indonesian citizen around 1967."
Ignoring the slight little fact that there's absolutely NO evidence ever shown of any adoption, under Indonesian law, Barack Obama Jr. was too old to be granted Indonesian citizenship though adoption. And under US law, a US citizen minor cannot renounce their citizenship or have it renounced for them.
"Indonesia today still does not allow dual citizenship. Under Indonesia law, once Obama became a naturalized citizen by virtue of adoption he could not lose that status without relinquishing his citizenship in writing, under oath. Upon returning to the United States from Indonesia, Obama eventually satisfied the "five-years-after-age-14" residency requirement of the 1952 Immigration and Nationality Act, thus making him a naturalized citizen of the United States at age 19."
That's not how US law works. If Barack Obama had US citizenship at birth, then there is nothing that would have taken that away. Which means at 19 he would have been a *gasp* Natural Born US citizen.
"Stated simply, Barack Obama, according to the Constitution, may never have been eligible for the office of President of the United States because he is not a natural born citizen, that is, a second generation American; a US born citizen of parents who were citizens at the time of his birth."
Funny how the US Constitution doesn't say anything about such matters. Then again, Sellin is citing Mario Apuzzo, who has been pretty much wrong on this subject from day one.
30 July - "American News" breathlessly reports:
"According to reports, a California judge tentatively scheduled a trial for the end of January in a case that officially challenges Barack Obama’s eligibility to be the president of the United States. In a process that would skirt impeachment, the trial would answer questions as to whether the president is qualified under the requirements of the Constitution.
If the case is heard in the courtroom, it would mark the first time the dispute has been taken to open court, according to one of the attorneys working on the case. Although it has been a difficult path to get the case heard, it appears the trial is officially on the books. And it appears that there is a strong list of plaintiffs.
The judge did not make an immediate decision on a motion to grant discover, which would open Obama’s concealed records. Alternatively, the judge also did not rule to dismiss the case, commenting that there are legitimate constitutional concerns in the case, that need to be addressed and resolved.
The case would be the first time that the evidence would be heard in the court of law, as the proposal has previously been rejected by other states as well as the Supreme Court. The suit alleges that Obama is a citizen of Indonesia, and in fact, “possibly still citizen of Kenya, usurping the position of the president of the United States of America and the commander-in-chief.”
If this sounds familiar, it should - because it's lifted from a World Nut Daily article that human face rash Jerome Corsi wrote on 8 September 2009 about Keyes/Barnett v Obama. And Snopes reported on 20 January 2013 that it's become a viral email.
In Birtherstan, Old News is Good News......
30 July - I want to share an article with you, from Jim Wright at "Stonekettle Station".
One of the things that has me so disgusted anymore - and why I went into semi-retirement - was how disgusting political discourse in this country has gotten. It's become horribly toxic and dehumanizing. And, alas, one political party (namely the GOP) has been taken over by the lunatics in the process.
Wright notes that in 2008, Sen. John McCain corrected a supporter who called then-Sen. Obama an "Arab".
And was booed for having done so.
"These people, they’re always shocked and dismayed and embarrassed when the hate and rage and naked fear they themselves created and encouraged boils over and the howling mob rises up and starts lighting shit on fire."
And it's true. The GOP is facing a monster they created. In creating politics as a blood sport, they created an environment in which the slightest dissent is squashed, any attempt at compromise is denied, and the party line is enforced with a zeal that would bring a tear of pride to a Soviet Zampolit. The narrative from Fox News, from the GOP, from the Rush Limbaughs and Ann Coulters and Joseph Farahs and Jerome Corsis of the right is a modern-day Pravda, divorced from reality and made to serve as propaganda only.
As Wright says:
"And the twisted monstrosity John McCain himself helped to build whole cloth from rotten scraps and bits of dead meat finally broke free of its chains and smashed out of the castle to roam the countryside terrorizing the villagers. And for the last six years it’s been bellowing in pain maddened rage and leaving a trail of destruction in its wake.
Six years. Six fucking years of birth certificates and fake social security numbers and the imminent End of Days and Biblical Antichrists and teleprompters and FEMA death camps and secret reeducation centers and 911 truthiness and supposed gayness and Michelle’s sex change and Black Panthers and Tea Parties and Communists and Nazis and Socialists and Arabs and gun grabbing and Israel hating and death panels and painting over Old Glory on Air Force one and killing his own ambassadors and killing Breitbart and killing the kids at Sandy Hook and killing the soldiers at Fort Hood (twice) and NOT killing bin Laden and spilling oil in the Gulf of Mexico and HAARPing himself up a hurricane to punish New Jersey and disappearing Malaysian airliners and ordering IRS outrages and alien reptile lizards from the 4th Dimension and Sharia Law and, well, it just goes on and on and on.
Honestly, at this point, you’d be hard pressed to find something, anything, that Obama hasn’t been accused of. By the ugly tentacled face of Dread Cthulhu, Folks, if Obama was even one tenth the evil mastermind these people have made him out to be, he would have herded us all into the ovens long ago."
And that's been the kicker. They've been so locked in the narrative of "Obama as America destroyer" that they can't see the jobs, the stock market, the economy. They can't see they've lost none of the freedoms they were so scared of losing. None of their dire, screaming predictions have come true, and the only thing that HAS happened is many on the right have fallen to deeper and deeper levels of insanity and conspiracy theories.
"Tell me, given the last six years, why shouldn’t Democrats, why shouldn’t President Obama, expect anything other than lunacy from Paul Ryan and his fellow Tea Partiers? After all, they’ve been calling for Obama’s impeachment since the day he was sworn in. Hell, a significant fraction of the crowd that Ryan runs with has vocally and repeatedly called for the President to be dragged from the Oval Office and hung from the nearest lamppost. Ridiculous? In a political party made up of Birthers, Truthers, religious nutters, revolutionaries, extremists, bigots, conspiracy theorists, rustlers, cut throats, murderers, bounty hunters, desperadoes, mugs, pugs, thugs, nitwits, halfwits, dimwits, vipers, snipers, con men, Indian agents, Mexican bandits, muggers, buggerers, bushwhackers, hornswogglers, horse thieves, bull dykes, train robbers, bank robbers, ass-kickers, shit-kickers and Methodists, you go right ahead and tell me when it gets too fucking ridiculous, won’t you?"
It's done long past ridiculous. It's downright sickening. The far right is so scared that President Obama is destroying the country, that they would rather destroy it first.
Just where in a sane world does that make any sense at all??
But that's right. The world isn't sane, and gets crazier every day.
"If Republicans take the Senate this year, you watch and see if the first order of business isn’t impeachment.
Don’t you believe for one goddamned second that this isn’t about impeachment.
That’s exactly what they are up to.
Because if they don’t destroy Barack Obama before the end of his term, they will have to own their bullshit."
From election day 2008 on, the GOP agenda has only been to do everything possible to destroy President Obama. To deny him a second term, to whip up false stories and fake "scandals", to rile the base and rule them with fear. The idea that many in the GOP wouldn't try for impeachment - even when there's no reason for it - is simply silly, since they've been calling for President Obama's impeachment ever since he won in 2008. It's not some "Democratic Party Plot", it's been part and parcel something the GOP has been clamoring for since 2008. (Well, at least among those that haven't simply skipped past impeachment and gone straight to firing squad or a rope over a White House tree branch that is).
And the birthers have been there all the time, being part of the merry mob of shock troopers. Despite the PUMA infusion into the Birtherstani gene pool, the GOP and the right has to own up to the birthers in all their inbred, insane, batguano-crazy glory.
