Like chiggers, anti-Obama web sites proliferate. There are so many of them, I have come to see them as individually insignificant and not worth the trouble of reading. Web movements are easy to Astroturf.
Nonetheless, I have a blog to write and so I feature yet another hotbed of delusion: The Obama Ballot Challenge web site. If we’re lucky, this web site will save some time trying to keep up with the scattered cranks raising ballot challenges to Barack Obama. As for Obama, he is the only candidate who has proved with all certainty that he is eligible, having been certified so by the Congress in 2009, the body empowered by the Constitution to make that determination.
The birthers at Obama Ballot Challenge seem to think that Orly Taitz’s social-security number confusion is proof of fraud rather than proof of incompetence on the part of the birthers. That’s pretty much what we’ve come to expect from birthers (incompetence like running an out of date version of WordPress on their site).
This comment below from the Challenge site struck me as revealing as to birther thinking. While our laws have set up a framework of representative government, they think that elections are not the solution to fixing what they perceive as the problem. What they do not understand is that in reality, the lunatics believe that they are entitled to run the asylum. Let us hope that never happens.
We do this because we are a nation of laws, and the political ruling class has failed to uphold the law regarding Obama’s usurpation.
I don’t usually care who is behind things, so I didn’t research the domain registrant of this site. However, when looking it up for another reason, I noticed that the registrant is Pamela Barnett, one Orly Taitz’s military birther plaintiffs. We covered Barnett v Obama here at Obama Conspiracy Theories at some length and she showed up [photo] at the Pastor Manning trial of Obama in Harlem.
