Birthers v Sanity

There were two rallies held in Washington DC last month. The first was the Obama Birth Certificate / Eligibility / Obamacare rally organized by birther attorney Philip J. Berg, and the second The Rally to Restore Sanity hosted by Comedy Central comedians Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert. Here are images of the two:

There was also a satellite location for the Rally to Restore Sanity at Manuel’s Tavern in Atlanta, GA, that may have exceeded the number attending Berg’s rally.

    “Rally to Restore Sanity at Manuel’s Tavern in Atlanta, GA”

    They have fun trivia nights too. It’s also a favorite hangout for local politicians and news reporters.

    Good times.

    I saw Jimmy Carter at Manuel’s Tavern years ago- what a great watering hole.

    I missed SF’s satellite broadcast- I just could not convince myself to roll out of bed at 8 a.m. to make it down there- I convinced myself it was raining. Sounds like it was fun.

    I was with Jimmy Carter at a scholarship fund raising show dress rehearsal that featured heavy satire of local politicians and businesses at the Hyatt Regency when someone whispered to him that Rosalynn (pregnant with Amy) had just gone into labor. Many in our family campaigned for him for Governor and President and one of my cousins was assistant to Attorney General Griffin Bell. We received an invitation to the inauguration and holiday greetings cards from the White House. Years later we now volunteer for Habitat for Humanity.

    “Rural South Dakotan Walks Away From First Encounter With Jewish Man, Shaken But Unharmed”

    SELBY, SD—According to local resident Hank Tyson’s firsthand account, the 51-year-old service-shop owner was left rattled but unharmed Wednesday after engaging in small talk with a man who turned out to be Jewish. “It seemed like any other conversation at first, but once I realized he was Jewish, I could feel my blood pressure go up and everything started moving in slow motion,” said Tyson, claiming the sequence of events that followed “felt like some kind of awful dream,” from the man’s subtle gesturing to his repeated questions about how to get to I-94. “You never think anything like this will happen to you until it does.” Following the encounter, Tyson drove home, kissed his wife, and told his children he loved them.

    WND has a new smear against the President and his family….

    http://www.wnd.com/?pageId=226349

    A letter Barack Obama Sr. wrote in 1962 raises new questions about the veracity of the official Obama nativity story related by Barack Obama Jr. in his autobiography, “Dreams from My Father.”

    In a May 1962 letter he wrote from Hawaii to his political benefactor in Kenya, Tom Mboya, Barack Obama Sr. discusses his “wife,” but without mentioning Ann Dunham, his Hawaiian bride and the mother of the future president.

    Toward the end of the letter, Obama wrote, “You know my wife is in Nairobi there and I would really appreciate any help you may give her.”

    Clearly Obama Sr. is referring to his first wife, Kezia Aoko, whom he had married in 1954 at age 18 while she was pregnant with their first child. Obama left Kenya in 1959 to study in Hawaii.

    More birther fun….

    “Obamacon 2012 Chairman Andy Martin will hold a Honolulu news conference today, November 13th, to announce a “scavenger hunt” seeking Barack Obama’s physical birthplace in Honolulu. Obamacon 2012/Honolulu 2010 continues through Tuesday, November 16th. Today’s sidewalk news conference will be held at the intersection of Atkinson Drive and Kapiolani Boulevard in front of the Hawai’i Convention Center, Honolulu.

    Both Martin and Daniel Ellsberg are Viet-Nam era protesters who gained notoriety for appearing on “enemies lists” of the Nixon Administration. Ellsberg is speaking at the Hilton Hawaiian Village earlier Saturday. Martin’s peripheral connection to news reports involving the My Lai Massacre in 1969 prompted President Nixon’s ire. Ellsberg was to become the legendary whistle-blower who exposed government lying in the “Pentagon Papers.” Martin will be attending Ellsberg’s speech.”

    Technically, Obama IS a “private citizen”. He has never BEEN the bona-fides President and is no longer a Senator.

    This statement by Hawaii Officials which amounts to an admission that Obama is not a public employee,as a President would be,can be used against them.

    I have been saying for years that Obama can be ARRESTED as a “private citizen” because only real presidents can be Impeached,a view held by others.

    Public employees are subject to the people. The People have a vested right and interest in Obama’s qualifications or disqualifications for the Presidency. He MUST produce the proof.

    Memo to members of Congress proves they never saw Obama’s long-form birth certificate
    SO HOW MANY TRAITORS ARE THERE IN DC?
    by Arnie Rosner

    If you had any doubts before as to the truthfulness of our leaders in Washington, DC, the following exposé should remove any doubts. As to the conspiracy of the entire Congress selling out America, well, I think you can make that determination yourself.

    In my opinion, recent release of the CRS documentation would seem to indicate arrest warrants for members of the Hawaiian State government who participated in and perpetrated the Obama eligibility conspiracy are merited.

    Due to the complex nature of the corruption involved and demonstrated by the federal and local governments in this series of matters, the credibility of the current judiciary is in question.

    In accordance with the 5th Amendment of the U.S Constitution, and to preclude any additional conflicts of interest, cover-ups and abuses of the Constitution, “We the People” of the United States, in order to properly investigate the circumstances surrounding these serious accusations, must convene independent grand juries. Grand Juries free from any connection to the current legal system. Grand juries with absolutely no connection, bias, control or influence from any and all local or federal prosecutors or judges.

    American Citizens, this is your right! This is part of the protections afforded you under the Constitution of the United States.

    DATE: November 16, 2010

    FROM: the Desk of Jedi Pauly

    TO: All Patriots of command rank (this means YOU)

    ATTENTION ALL PATRIOTS

    It has come to the command staff’s attention that the troops need a direction and purpose in the combined efforts to restore the Republic. Jedi Pauly has taken it upon himself to secure a “dot com” under the name Presidential Royalty Birthing Services (PRBS). The purpose of PRBS will become clear momentarily.

    As a result of our legal department’s breakthrough on the mystery of the meaning of Article II “natural born Citizen”, (see Post and E-mail archive article by Jedi Pauly “The True meaning of Article II “natural born Citizen”

    A Scientific Legal Theory”), we are happy to report that a breakthrough in our combined war efforts has been achieved.

    In order to facilitate the restoration of the Republic from the hands of our domestic enemies, it is felt that a psychological warfare operation effort must be undertaken in order

    to deprogram the brainwashed Obot masses who believe that Article II “natural born Citizen” means that anyone who is born on U.S. soil can qualify for the Office of President.

    Our discovered breakthrough now permits us to go on the offensive. First the core draft concept.
    ————————

    OBSERVE:

    THIS FOLLOWING IS THE DRAFT CONCEPT LETTER, TO BE MODIFIED AS NEEDED:

    Dear Royal Person;

    I am Mr. Jedi Pauly with Presidential Royalty Birthing Services Company, a new and rapidly growing start-up entrepreneurial enterprise. Due to your special status as a person with a Title of Nobility, we are very pleased to offer you a unique opportunity

    WHAT IS IT ABOUT HAWAIIAN SOIL…all that VOLCANIC ASH maybe? Or PINEAPPLE JUICE?
    ———————————

    As a result of the U.S. presidential elections in 2008, our Research and Development staff has discovered a unique quality and special property of Hawaiian soil that automatically causes children who are born on its soil to qualify for the Office of President of the United States.

    Due to these special natural powers of Hawaiian soil, your royal born children can now directly inherit political allegiance to the U.S. from Hawaiian soil,

    bypassing the Laws of Nature that ordinarily would require one to be born to a U.S. citizen father in order to inherit a political allegiance to the U.S and qualify under Article II for the office of President.

    The UNITED STATES CALIPHATE OF HAWAIIAN ROYALTY…can you imagine that signage on the desk at the UNITED NATIONS?
    —————–

    We are confident that you will not want to miss out on the opportunity of a lifetime to transform the United States into your own personal monarchy and make the world a better place.

    HERE is an idea for ORIN HATCH!
    ——————

    OBSERVE:

    Dear Senator Orin Hatch;

    Since you have stood behind and promoted the CRS memo that supports the position that anyone born on U.S. soil is a “natural born citizen” and therefore qualifies for the Office of President, and you have supported and continue to support Obama in office, we know you will be happy to learn that your efforts against the American People and their Constitution has caused you to create for yourself a golden opportunity that you are sure not to want to miss.

    We at Presidential Royalty Birthing Services (PRBS) have developed a lucrative business model that we would like to offer you an interest in.

    My favorite article about the phenomenon. The story of McArthur Wheeler and his attempt to foil the security cameras by smearing his face with lemon juice is classic.

    In one sales training I had a decade ago, they explained a theory of knowledge that had one progressing from unconscious incompetence (stupid and don’t realize you’re stupid), to conscious incompetence (you know what you don’t know) to unconscious competence (you know what to do and don’t have to think about it).

    Add unconscious incompetence to a paranoid outlook on life and politics and you end up with tyros arguing with engineers about how steel won’t melt, with aviation experts that Wellstone’s pilot must have been blinded with a high-energy weapon, and birthers arguing with every legal scholar of the past century.

    Interestingly, Dunning/Kruger found that tutoring the “grossly incompetent” students even a little raised their ability to assess their own competence. I think that the paranoid mindset short-circuits that effect. It takes the tutoring and distorts it so that it fits with the preconceived paranoid ideas. There might be a research paper somewhere in this.

    Internet powerhouse andy martin….

    (Nov. 17, 2010) — The Post & Email received the following press release from Andy Martin, who has just concluded his conference in Honolulu on Obama’s origins, religion and unknown personal history.

    Dear Reader:

    All of us at Obamacon 2012 are in Honolulu for a very specific purpose: to root out the truth about President Barack Obama’s personal history.

    The convention has been a spectacular success. We are issuing statements on Obama’s religion, education and “roots” in Hawai’i, and reminding the American people (and the somnolent American media) that Obama’s life story is a blank. I am indebted to everyone who has participated.

    In this letter I would like to do two things. First I would like to make another appeal for financial support for Obamacon 2012 and our continuing efforts. Second, I want to connect Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers battle in 1971 to the work being done today by so-called “Birthers,” now 100 million strong. Birthers/Doubters are the 100 million Americans who question Barack Obama’s “story.”

    Let me get the money out of the way. We can’t operate on hot air. We need your financial support. We do everything we can to keep costs under control but cash is still in short supply. Obama’s supporters have donated over a billion dollars to his political committees. That’s why Obama is strong and his opponents are weak.

    If you have not yet made a contribution, please make an online donation at http://www.CommitteeofOneMilliontoDefeatBarackObama.com, or if you prefer ultimate privacy send us a check or money order at our mailing address in New York. Just remember we can’t do the good work we are doing without your financial support. The more you contribute, the more resources we have to fight for the truth and the facts about the pretender/usurper in the White House.

You ask for money and hype that you have some information to disclose. Then you produce nothing but more hype. You remind me of a soap opera. Either produce something of substance or sit down and remain silent. I stopped reading your stuff 2 years ago when I realized you are nothing more than a “player” looking to make some cash off of people’s genuine and reasonable distress and concern about the man sitting in the WH. That’s not a matter to be taken lightly. Shame on you, Andy.

    More nonsense from Fitzy…

    LCDR FITZPATRICK: There’s been a lot of activity here today, and it’s obvious that the pressure has really been applied here in the Monroe County jailhouse, but I won’t go into details tonight. Well-done. Way to go. They’re worried. They’re scared.

    LCDR FITZPATRICK: The second thing is that I learned last night…I’m in two different courts; I’m in the Sessions Court – actually, I just left the Sessions Court, but the Sessions Court was last Tuesday, the ninth, when they laid down a bond of $1,500 from what I understand. Now at that time, there was a Criminal Court order which Judge Blackwood had issued that I’m to be held without bond.

    MRS. RONDEAU: Yes.

    LCDR FITZPATRICK: Now I learned last night that it has happened where people thought they were being bonded out from the bond that was handed down from the Sessions Court and they got to the front door, ready to walk out of here, and then found out that there was a hold on them from the Criminal Court. The bond money has been collected, and it’s not refundable, and the man goes back into jail.

    LCDR FITZPATRICK: That day, Dixon asked me if I wanted to make some kind of a deal with the District Attorney, and I said, “No way in hell.” I just want people to know…please, I’m rock-solid and I’m going all the way on this one. And keep the pressure on in the community. This is really spreading, and you can see that, Sharon. We heard these people talking in the hallway here; they’re talking so that we can hear them.

    LCDR FITZPATRICK: Yeah, yeah. Lt. Wakefield…He can go to hell, frankly. He’s talking about the meal that he’s planning here for Thanksgiving Day, and how good it’s going to be…and both Mr. Ellington and I were listening to this, recognizing that this guy knows that we can hear him. They’re trying to get good news out. Don’t print any good news. It’s a dungeon; it’s just a terrible place. So I’ll leave it at that. Like I said, there’s more to report when I leave here. And right now, just so that we cover this base again, my stay here is indefinite. I don’t know from one day to the next what’s going on, and that’s OK. As I said, it’s like a POW camp so you live from one day to the next; it’s a vicarious existence. But keep the pressure on. You can tell your readers that this really is having an effect, and the cockroaches are running for the corner; the lights have been turned on, and they don’t like it one bit.

    MRS. RONDEAU: Sounds like a bunch of bullies who thought they could keep beating up and tasering people, throwing them in jail like a piece of meat…

    LCDR FITZPATRICK: They’re feeding on the people in this community. It’s nothing but predatory. They are feeding on the people in this community, and they’re sucking them dry. And all the things we talked about: you keep hearing these narratives from different people. They’re stealing property, they’re stealing cars, they’re stealing furniture and televisions and they take these people into custody and it’s a revolving door. The bondsmen are making a mint off of this thing, because they keep sending people for bonds, and the bondsmen keep the money. Everyplace you look, there’s a racket going on, and they’re feeding off the people in this community. It’s an outrage, Sharon. And the judges…you can tell by the way that they react, like when I called out Dixon on the ninth, his reaction was “ten days more; oh, no, I didn’t do this…” These guys know that they’re about to be caught, and they’re scared to death.

    Yes, just like you refusing to put your entire apartment on webcam 24/7 (including night-vision) means you have something to hide.

    Funny how birthers claim they want less “government dictatorship” and “more freedom” and “more rights”, yet are the first to advocate taking away the privacy of others or dropping the “presumption of innocence” principle if it conflicts with their interests.

    With WND-Aping Op-Ed, Wash. Examiner Goes Birther
    Topic: Washington Examiner

    It seems inevitable that every conservative news outlet will, sooner or later, dirty its hands by latching onto the birther issue. The Washington Examiner plunges in by publishing a Nov. 22 op-ed by Diana West promoting one birther’s case.

    West wrote that Terrence Lakin, an Army lieutenant colonel, “faces an upcoming court-martial at Fort Meade, Md., on Dec. 14 for refusing to follow orders to redeploy to Afghanistan because of his conviction that the president hasn’t proven his eligibility to hold office.” Lakin is the birthers’ latest hope for promoting their case, and West admits she’s writing about him in part because “Lakin supporters have dubbed this week Terry Lakin Action Week, urging American citizens to take the occasion to call their congressional representatives about the case.”

    West highlighted a claim that “unknown, unknowable site authorities took down’ a new entry” on Lakin “almost as soon it went up.” That claim comes straight from the birther fanatics at WorldNetDaily.

    West lionized Lakin as “a senior military officer with an unblemished career” who is committing “what amounts to a historic act of civil disobedience for which he may well serve time in prison.” The reality, meanwhile, is that a military judge has already ruled that, according to military law, the personal beliefs or convictions of a soldier are not enough for the soldier to deem an order illegal, that Lakin cannot introduce any evidence related to Obama’s citizenship at his court-martial, and that the military court was not the proper venue for determining the eligibility of a president.

    West peppered her op-ed with standard birther arguments:

    Of course, Obama’s failure to release his original 1961 birth certificate (which, contrary to mantralike misperception, has never been released) is just the beginning. There remains a startling dearth of documentation pertaining to Obama’s progress through his 49 years of life that only begins with his birth certificate.

    A gaping hole — dare I say “memory hole”? — seems to have consumed all possible Obama records from his education, health, family records, even his pre-presidential political career. But this subject is never taken seriously by the media or the political establishment, including, most glaringly, erstwhile GOP opponent John McCain, who, on being challenged on the eligibility question himself, should have called on candidate Obama to join him in releasing their bona fides together.

    But even to suggest such a thing is to indulge in “conspiracy theories.” Not surprisingly, Wikipedia defines this term for us as well, noting that it’s “often used dismissively in an attempt to characterize a belief as outlandishly false and held by a person judged to be a crank or a group confined to the lunatic fringe.”

    Is the birther path really the one that Philip Anschutz’s aggressively conservative publication wants to take? It appears so.

    And that’s just on the federal level; any state charges would be in addition, as would charges against individuals who may have helped him in the commission of any of the acts, according to Gary Kreep of the United States Justice Foundation.

    The WND article quoted above is just priceless, again.

    “Mr. Obama knows, or at least should know, the place of his birth and the status of his citizenship, as all, or nearly all, adults in the world do.”

    Yes, sure. He was there when he was born, so he should know precisely where that was. Everyone knows exactly where they are the minute they are born, so they can testify to that. And of course everyone knows the citizenship of their parents (if that mattered, for sake of argument) the minute they are born, so they can testify to that.

    My earliest proper memories go back until I was about 4 (trip with my parents to Paris), though I have some vague recollections of a hospital stay that predate that time.
    So WND actually assumes one would be able to “know for certain” where and to what parent citizenship one was born.

    I really wonder what you need to smoke to actually believe this and if so, I want some of that, just for fun.

    Sure, you can rely on what your parents tell you or on some records, but according to birther conspiracy religion, you can’t know that for sure, it’s all hearsay. So how could, even within the birthers’ twisted version of reality, Obama know *for sure* that he is not eligible? Hawaii says he was born there. His parents told him he was born there. How could he “know” otherwise, unless there was proof someone with authority told him otherwise?

    It’s always funny to see how quickly basic logic and common sense go out the window, even if you try your best to give birthers’ arguments the benefit of the doubt… 🙂

    He need but look at his birth certificate to see where he was born, and his passport to determine the status of his citizenship. Having seen both, I can be confident that Barack Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, and is a US citizen.

    this is one of my favorite parts of the birther arsenal. the claim that grandma dunham had used her connections as a bank teller to bribe a health dept worker to produce a fraudulent ( not fake ) birth certificate then place the announcement in the paper. if this were the case then obama and authorities would only have knowledge of him being born in hawaii and all official documentation would back that up. so, for all intent and purposes, obama would be a NBC.

    now i know the birthers counter with ” this is exactly the reason why we need a complete investigation!!!!!!” . imagine if we held the same standard for all presidents. reagan was 70years old when he took office. was there anyone alive at the time that had first hand knowledge of his home birth? this little boy that suspiciously went by the name “dutch” ???

    Rush Limbaugh: ‘Impostor’ is serving in White House
    Radio host again questions constitutional eligibility of Obama

    ——————————————————————————–
    Posted: November 23, 2010
    1:09 pm Eastern

    2010 WorldNetDaily

    PALM BEACH, Fla. – Radio host Rush Limbaugh is again calling into question the constitutional eligibility of Barack Obama to serve as president, declaring him to be a phony.

    “We have an impostor for all intents and purposes serving in the White House,” Limbaugh said today.

    The comment from the top-rated host came during his analysis of the disclosure that Mullah Akhtar Mohammad Mansour, a purported representative of the Taliban negotiating with the Afghan government, actually turned out to be an impersonator.

    Limbaugh said: “The impostor got into the equivalent of the White House in Afghanistan. Did they not ask this guy for some kind of identification? They clearly didn’t. They clearly didn’t ask this guy for his birth certificate. How in the world could they trust in a leader and even give money to somebody who has not been properly vetted? Well, because it happened here in the United States. We have an impostor for all intents and purposes serving in the White House.”

    He added, “Do you realize that if this Taliban leader had tried to buy antihistamines from … any kind of drug store, he would have had to produce a photo ID – not to vote, and not to be president – but to buy antihistamines.”

    BatGuano: imagine if we held the same standard for all presidents.

    Actually I wonder how many Tea Party candidates actually published their “real” BCs (not just printed certifications). I know, birtherland does not care about the allegiance of their favourite congressional candidates since they need not be NBC by the Constitution. Still…

    Besides, as I’ve pointed out before, there is never a “complete investigation” for someone with confirmation bias, just like there is never a “final court ruling” against someone with querulatory disorder (they just want to appeal again and again until “one court finally gets it right”).
    Because with every investigation, you’ll have to know when to stop. If I buy a Ferrari but am convinced my seller tricked me and sold me a modified Buick, there are lengths I would not go to. I would maybe have an expert check the chassis number and verify that the car parts appear identical to those typically used on a Ferrari; but if I simply consider them clever forgeries, to convince me you would have to prove this car actually came from a Ferrari factory (and was not built in a Buick factory using forged parts), so you’d have to show me some witnesses. But what if I had doubts these people ever worked for Ferrari in said factory? And so on…
    A typical court investigation would have stopped at the expert saying “for all intents and purposes, this is a genuine Ferrari”.

    Even if the birthers get “their day in court” and even if SCOTUS itself miraculously decided to review all of Obama’s documents, they would not get what they want, because no sane person would go to the lengths they would go to “investigating”.

    Hmm, maybe the Founders also were space aliens and the Constitution is legally void? If that is my premise, no investigation would ever convince me otherwise since all actual evidence is already shrouded in “hearsay”.

    So if I redefine “evidence” as “only things I can touch and inspect myself without having to rely on others or records” (“indirect evidence”), I can hardly prove anything, probably not even that I am myself or that my grandparents were actually human beings…

    More Fitzy stories courtsey of the Post and Fail….

    “The Monroe County, TN court clerk fulfilled her promise to send The Post & Email the audio recording of a hearing which took place on November 9, 2010, which revealed that Capt. Michael Morgan’s testimony regarding the events of October 27, 2010 during Fitzpatrick’s arrest conflicted with Fitzpatrick’s account of multiple taserings and the deputies’ failure to announce themselves prior to their breaking down the door to his residence to get inside.

    Fitzpatrick accused Judge J. Reed Dixon of being “part of the problem” and having threatened two public defenders who were previously working on his case.

    The Post & Email paid for the damages to the door out of the Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III Legal Defense Fund, which the landlady stated were $200.

    Capt. Morgan also makes no mention of Fitzpatrick’s injuries sustained during the struggle for which he received no medical treatment and which were quite obvious in a photo which was displayed on the internet shortly afterward, while Morgan allegedly went to the emergency room and received a diagnosis of “brused (sic) ribs.”

    And in the comments..

    Alicia Fitzpatrick says:
    Wednesday, November 24, 2010 at 12:14 AM
    They broke down the door. Illegal entry. Walter had the right to defend himself. Morgan should consider himself fortunate he only got a bruised rib. If Walter had wanted to he could have shot him dead and been well within the law.

    Lakinista website posts song about LTC Lakin
    By Dwight Sullivan, November 23, 2010

    safeguardourconstitution has posted this link to Patra Minocha’s 3 minute and 34 second song about LTC Lakin called, “It’s Time to Know the Truth.” Ms. Miocha’s vocal stylings aren’t my cup of tea, though there’s some good piano work on the song.

    But what strikes me more is that LTC Lakin’s supporters — including, oddly enough, his brother — seem to be unaware that his defense has abandoned the challenge to President Obama’s constitutional eligibility.

    not that odd. i tried to think what i’d do in the same scenario and more than likely i’d side-up with supporters of my brother ( even if i believed personally that he royally f’ed-up ). the part i found interesting was the brief part of the interview i heard with lakin’s brother he seemed cautious (imo) when talking about his conversations with terry before he was accused of defying orders. not only is lakin’s brother a doctor but he also had been a lawyer. i’m curious if the defense could use that fact against lakin ( that he had easy access to additional legal advice yet continued on his path ).

    ….i’m beginning to speculate. gotta stop that around these parts.

    Melodically, it’s a pastiche of Tennessee Ernie Ford’s, “Sixteen Tons” and the old spiritual, “Joshua Fought the Battle of Jericho.” Lyrically, it’s an insipid and ametric hymn of praise to LTC Lakin.

    If, during the coming season of feasting, you ingest something foul and need to vomit, rather than grab the Epicac, listen to Patra’s tune. It’s purgative powers are remarkable. For those who do not need to ralph, but who are curious about the song, you’ll find some of the lyrics below. But read with caution–they may leave you with a sour stomach

    Verse
    The judge’s ruling sealed Lakin’s fate.
    Denied him evidence to prove his case.
    A White House scandal worse than Watergate.
    Obama’s “long-form” could set the record straight!
    Put Barack on the stand before it’s too late!

    Chorus
    It’s time to tell the truth.
    It’s time to tell the truth.
    It’s time to tell the truth,
    Expose conspiracies.
    It’s time to tell the truth.
    It’s time to tell the truth.
    It’s time to tell the truth,
    about the “CIC”.
    It’s time to know the truth.
    It’s time to know the truth.
    Truth can set Terry Lakin free.
    It’s time to know the truth.
    It’s time to know the truth.

    Verse:
    A sacrificial soldier who’s native-born,
    Asked Barack Hussein Obama, are you “Natural Born”?
    A God-fearing soldier & family man,
    Terry Lakin’s fate lies in God’s hands,
    Terry Lakin’s future, is in the Lord’s hands.

    Now, I’m not a believer in divine punishment, but if I were, and if Lakin’s future is truly in the the hands of God, then I’d say Lakin’s about to be b*tch slapped.

    I use to call it “Portable Brain Remover” and it seems it has worked for the birthers… 😉
