I finally got over to listen to KenyaBornObamAcorn’s guest shot on the Andrea Shea King show on Blog Talk Radio because somebody told me that they talked about me on the show. I got quite a bit of air time, but a lot of it was fiction. So to set the crooked straight¹:
- She said that I was part of some national effort to make immunizations mandatory. Immunizations are generally mandatory nationwide and have been for years. I have no involvement in immunization policy or advocacy. I just worked on national standards for data quality and exchange.
- I don’t think she got the joke about Bank of America Plaza, where I used to work a number of years ago. I called it the “Moire” building because of the appearance of a photo I took, not because I was lying about the name of the building.
- She said that I worked “across the street” from Bank of America Plaza and in a “strip mall.” Both are false. While it shouldn’t matter to anyone the name of the building where I used to work, finding it the Internet should be trivial since she knows the name of the company and the city, so I don’t understand why she got it wrong.
- She said that I am a “union thug” but I have never been a member of, nor worked for a labor union. It has been suggested that the “union” refers to the American Civil Liberties Union, but they have never be associated with “thugs” and so such a usage wouldn’t make sense.
- She said that I wasn’t retired. Since she knows where I used to work, she could just call them up and ask. It is irresponsible to say that I lied about being retired without doing the basic verification.
- She said that I had my hooks into the Hawaii Vital Records system. Hawaii wrote their own system to the best of my knowledge, and I never had any professional contact with the Hawaii Department of Health. I learned recently that the company I used to work for does have a behavioral health contract with the State of Hawaii, as it does with most states.
- She made some vague claims about “big wigs”, and “Capitol Hill” and something that sounded like an award from “NACO” and a “voice in Congress.” She makes up a totally fictitious quote from me: “You don’t know what I just won.” Being retired, I wouldn’t have heard about a company award; however, a quick search on Google reveals that it is “NACo” (The National Association of Counties.) Even though KBOA knows my name, I believe she confused me with a current vice president where I used to work who has the same first, but a different last name from me. You have to match the first and last name.
- She said that I was “heading this nationwide immunization program with the CDC” that was a “depopulation” program. I never headed a national anything.
- She said that I have access to vital records. In my former job I did data conversion work on vital records for some states and as part of that work I handled data. However such access was for a limited duration and was solely for the purpose of fulfilling our contracts. And as I said, I’m retired and that’s all behind me. She says, “It says right in there he has access to the uh, uh, the Obama Certificate.” The only access I have to the Obama certificate is the same that everyone has, through the White House web site.
- The one relevant claim she made, that I went around the Internet causing “mayhem,” is false as well. I do comment on web sites on occasion, and on KBOA’s YouTube channel, but I just tell the truth. Note that the “mayhem” comment was introductory to the show and applied to the people who would be discussed. It was not applied to me individually.
- She said following 81:00 in the transcript that I don’t post on the Fogbow much (true) but that I post under the handle “BFB” which is false. I post as Dr. Conspiracy. I took a minute to look at posts from BFB and the writing style is nothing like mine, and the things he writes about show a different set of interests. I really don’t see how one could confuse me with BFB.
It appears that the existence of a normal, intelligent and honest person who totally doesn’t buy the birther mythology is beyond KBOA’s understanding. She seems to think that people who disagree with her must be liars and hooligans, and she’s going to make the facts fit that view whether they do or not. The part about parents being compensated by the government for vaccine adverse reactions and then tying me to it because I worked on immunization data systems is so totally wacko. It appears that KBOA was not interested in accuracy but just finding some information that she could string together to sound bad.
