Dr. Conspiracy

I’m very conscious of what people see when they hit http://www.obamaconspiracy.com.  For the most part, I try to make a fair percentage of the articles visually appealing, often with some image to add color. I’ve been hesitant to write short thoughts as articles because they clutter up the home page. The result is that while this is a good publishing site, it is not much of a blog.

I had toyed with starting a second parallel blog (note: domains Conspirocrat.org and Conspirocracy.com are available).

This article starts a “blog within a blog.” By attaching comments to this one article, I have a place for random bits that are two short for an article. Nothing gets cluttered up. Anyone who really cares can find them either by bookmarking this page, or looking under Recent Comments on the sidebar.

    I dropped by the m, p, & gs blog this morning. They have occasional articles about Obama eligibility issues.

    It’s nice to see a general blog with sensible articles on Obama eligibility sprinkled in.

    For the uninitiated “h/t” is an abbreviation for “hat tip”, a way of giving credit to sources of information. Thanks to M, P, & G S for the h/t. I didn’t really deserve it, since the State Department Travel Advisory on Pakistan came from one of my readers.

    I generally don’t attribute where I learn about things, first because if I did that consistently, I’d have to attribute almost everything here. Second, at least for commenters here, I don’t know how much “publicity” you want. It seems to me that the debunking web sites are there to provide information, not to puff up the blog owners (in stark contrast to many web sites on the other side).

    I am, however, grateful for the commenters on this blog and for other web sites that do research, a lot of research.

    A little fallout from the Docket Project. I got the order in Essek v. Obama from PACER and posted it here, the only source of that document. So now there is a link from The Right Side blog over here. Since the nObama blogs cut and paste themselves a lot, that means more links over here, for example The Betrayal blog now links over here too for that document.

    What I could do is put ads for ObamaConspiracy.org onto the PDF’s. That would be sneaky.

    Found this over at The Betrayal:

    ADMIN NOTICE: for data security reasons this blog will republish all Leo Donofrio’s articles and updates. This blog runs on a save [sic] server that for all intends [sic] and purposes should be out of the Obama Mafia’s reach

    What a bunch of maroons.

    I’m just sitting here, waiting for the Obama Mafia to start shutting down those web sites, one by one. Hmmm, nothing happening. OH NO! IT’S THE RULE OF LAW! Run away!

    Two new filings on Hollister v. Soetoro. Check out the Docket link at the top of the page.

    The court’s computers barfed over the previous filing (too high a resolution in the PDF), but they finally got it open. The Judge withdrew his show cause order, but Berg apparently didn’t see it, and filed again.

    No comment.

    Actually I would have told them, but they keep locking the daily threads. Most annoying.

    Politijab.com reports that a North Carolina marine, and alleged white supremacist, is being charged with threatening President Obama. The Marine, already in jail on robbery charges, could face up to 5 years in prison.

    Three new documents in Hollister v Obama, look under Docket tab above:

    Bauer replied to Berg’s response to the motion to dismiss – bottom line: the harm alleged is still hypothetical.

    Berg wants the pro hac admission granted – he still thinks it was held in abeyance because he followed the clerk’s instructions.

    Berg replied to Bauer’s sur-reply – not much substance there.

    FYI, a new web site is in the works in the form of a Wiki to collect and organize facts and information related to Obama fringe issues. A Wiki is a collaborative format. Anyone interested in putting in some time may leave a message via the Contact link above. I’d really like to find someone who’s savvy with WikiMedia administration.

    Looks like major upheaval over at ObamaCrimes (Berg’s blog). There was some kind of a blowup with Linda Starr leaving upset. Since her parting shot has been scrubbed (and a lot of other messages from last nght) and I didn’t get it direct, I won’t re-post it here. A link to someone who did see it is here: http://www.politijab.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=548#p9611

    What I did see was this message today:

    Agent 86 wrote:To all on this Forum,
    Some things happened last night. Some things that many of you are not aware of. Linda Star for the reasons she gave that have been removed from the posting here has decided to leave the blog for now. This is unfortunate that the events of such an evening as the one last night caused Linda to make the decision to leave. We wish her well. Some things posted on this Forum from last night where removed and again some things that have continued to be put up from last night are being removed as well.

    It is unfortunate that some things where put here in print that should should have been discussed in private. This site is the property of Phil Berg and Obamacrimes.com. it is not our intention to focus on what happened last night but rather move on and wish Linda well. We have not dismissed Linda and her contributions to date, as for now our goals are still the same as they have been all along and will remain so.

    Again we wish Linda well and we appreciate the continued support from our many supporters here.

    Agent 86

    A lot of things and people get removed over at ObamaCrimes. I am reminded of something Mark Davis wrote:

    Honorable people do not like to be duped. Duplicity may convert strong supporters into strong critics.

    Perhaps another quote is more apt:

    Heaven has no rage like love to hatred turned
    Nor hell a fury like a woman scorned.

    Over at Apuzzo’s place, ZAPEM wrote:

    Obama admitted he wasn’t a natural born citizen by pointing to his own roots and the British Nationality Act of 1948, where he KNEW he wasn’t eligible. They BOTH [Obama and McCain] counted on the fact that the average citizen would be ignorant of the law and overlook the “CONDITIONS” set in the Constitution, so he lied to them.

    If the average citizen were not ignorant of the law, your crackpot ideas would have no following at all. Fortunately for the country all 537 members of Congress are not ignorant of the law, nor are a stream of judges ignorant of the law, nor is the Supreme Court ignorant of the law. Or are they all part of one huge conspiracy [Honey, where’s my tin foil hat?]

    Has it been working reliably and then stopped working recently?

    Dr. Conspiracy March 19, 2009 at 3:11 pm #

    FYI, I have not found any solution to the comment nesting problem. Comment processing is part of the “theme” that embodies the look and feel of the blog too. Most WordPress themes that look decent have one thing or another broken in them.

    I really would like to change themes on this blog. I find the current one just a bit too cute/frilly for the subject matter, and there are problems with the styles for lists in comments and centering for photos.

    I went through a dozen more themes last night, testing them. So far it’s a trade off between things working right and themes looking the way I want.

    Anyhow, if you see something totally different before next week, don’t be surprised.

    WorldNetDaily, Rush Limbaugh and the rest of the pure-blood conservative tribe have started their attacks on Sonia Sotomayor, President Obama’s nominee for the Supreme Court. They found one sentence in all that she ever said that could be taken out of context so sound racist, so they have labeled her a racist. She apparently belongs (and who knows if it’s true) to a Latino improvement association. Criticizing that is like calling a black Supreme Court nominee a racist for belonging to the NAACP.

    Fortunately, the truth is that Sonia Sotomayor is a moderate, and that she will be easily confirmed by the Senate with, I dare say, quite a few Republican votes.

    I visited the Eyes on Obama web site and found an interesting article: “Top 30 Stupidist Attacks on Obama”.

    The conservatives have been throwing everything including the kitchen sink at Obama for 4 months now in an unprecedented onslaught of negative partisan politics, and their attacks have become increasingly desperate and ridiculous. Read below for a list of the 30 most pathetic lies, smears, distortions, and conspiracy theories they have used.

    So in an attempt to sample popular culture, I downloaded the roll playing game World Of Warcraft. To start one must create a character from a set of available ones. I ended up making a Troll Warrior. The final step in creating the character is to pick a name. Well, you know the rest of the story…

    I call attention to this article from the Houston Chronicle Opinion page: We need a more candid conversation about race.

    …it is considered bad manners at best or even “racist” at worst to ask how much of today’s protests of President Barack Obama’s policies might be motivated by race. People are touchy for at least three good reasons: One, race is so hard to quantify; two, the protests are more ideological than racial; and, three, most Americans have little tolerance for outright bigotry anymore.
