Corsi: “I have his license”

Jerome Corsi, author of Where’s the Birth Certificate?, a crank investigation of Barack Obama’s place of birth, relied on a so-called Hawaiian private investigator. Questions were raised here by a commenter and discussed in my article Bogus WND Detective raises bogus issue about the fact that no such person as Takeyuki Irei is reported in a search of professional licenses in Hawaii.

Now Fox Business, in a May 18 interview with Corsi, says that they can’t find a license either! Corsi’s response:

I have a copy of his license and I’ll be happy to get it for you.

Well, where’s the detective certificate?

Fox News describes Corsi’s new book as “full of holes” but he’s not worried:

I’m used to being ridiculed.

I frankly think that Fox Business is really a lot better at making a birther look stupid than CNN is. I really do.

    when does A birther reveal his facts, it will be a very long wait, probably forever (Guaranteed) But he will fool RIO, the paypal pusher!

    by the way WND is backing away from this DETECKTiV and his story, they are scrubbing it

    Like I always say, Corsi, if you don’t want to be ridiculed… don’t be ridiculous.

    “Nobody that is seriously minded has said this is a fake.” Is the point where Corsi should have realized that he is speaking to a seriously minded person. He must have thought after the interview that it went badly, or that if one in ten decided to buy his book he would make a lot of money.

    Corsi was part of the swift boat thing? No wonder swiftboating is now part of our lexicon.

    Kapiolani won’t see that money. Corsi Will Reveal Details On Media Person Who Helped Forge Obama’s Birth Certificate. They know who he is.

    Utter nonsense. Corsi and his sugar daddy are desperate to keep their birther propaganda cash cow alive.

    They intend to milk the pathetic, hatred driven, gullible, racist birther bigots for every dime.

    It’s not nonsense. Anyone can look and tell the document is a forgery. There are to many flaws left by the forger. The book is a excellent read. I urge you to get a copy and read it. The White House is terrified of this book.

    The only thing the white house is terrified of as regards Corsi is that this book wont have the same effect as “the Obama Nation” did, i.e. guarantee Obama another landslide victory.

    Corsi admits that Ann Dunham was in Seattle in late August 1961. I’d like to hear him expand upon that and explain how she got the baby Obama there from Kenya in less than a month.

    It is now the Da Vinci Code Long Form Birth Certificate. I guess we will soon learn that all of this is a grand conspiracy begun by the Knights Templar, having passed the Holy Grail on to Obama who will become the promised anti-Christ presiding over the New World Order.

    It is all about the secret codes in documents that normal people do not find. The secret code in the Constitution, street signs, the BC and, of course, that secret, end of the world, formula in the Bible.

    Why? There’s nothing really new or damning in it. There’s just rehashing of old arguments, with a few new pieces of info that are probably as fraudulent as the old info was.

    Also, he makes a complete hash of the claim that Obama isn’t eligible because of his father’s nationality or possible dual citizenship.

    If you DO read it, have a long afternoon in a bookstore or get it from the library. don’t give WND a dime.

    I did something similar, and got e-mails asking if it was for real. Someone from O’Donnell’s campaign looked at it, and didn’t do anything:

    At least he knows as little about what he’s talking about as Corsi and WND do.
    I read his “analysis” that led him to saying today was Judgement Day, and I think he at least missed the omitted days when the calendar was switched from Julian to Gregorian. So I suppose the real Judgement Day will be another 10 days later. Enough time to see what Corsi’s gonna “reveal” next week.

    misha: Farah the Phalangist is claiming the LFBC is a forgery, so he does not have to donate.

    I agree. Of course, if Farah really wanted to remove doubt, he’d donate the 15K and announce it to the world. Put his money where his mouth is. “See, I’m not doing this to keep the cash rolling in”.

    In fact, if Farah wanted to remove all doubt, he could throw open the books, show how much he’s made off the Birther issue, and donate every last bit of it to a worthy cause. Maybe a charity for veterans, since WND seems so very concerned about Dr. Lakin.

    I think it’s the least a true patriot could do for his country. Show that he’s not in it to line his pockets by continually stirring up false rumors and innuendo.

    Something tells me that it’s not going to happen, though…

    If this Takeyuki Irei is indeed a PI he certainly is not seeking business since he fails to be listed as doing business in either Hawaii or Minnesota where he apparently has residences.

    Since the birfer movement seems to be made up mostly of retired people (think those military dimwits), I wouldn’t be surprised if Mr Irei, if he exists and really is a PI, actually is a retired PI (I don’t know if they can keep their license in that case).

    Licenses usually have an expiration date unless renewed, If he has one. If he is not in the PI database then it’s not valid anymore.

    Expelliarmus May 23, 2011 at 2:25 pm #

    If he had ever been licensed in Hawaii, it would show up in their online database even if his license had long since expired.

    It is possible that he lived and worked in Minnesota, and in that case it is not as apparent whether an old, expired or inactive would show up, as the Minnesota web site seems to allow only downloading of a current PDF list of active licenses.
