Sign up to view WorldNetDaily ad tomorrow

The big WorldNetDaily advertising extravaganza at the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office is scheduled for tomorrow. Like last time, you have to give them an email address (and this time your name and zip code) to sign up and they will send you instructions (and email alerts forever more) on how to view the event, which is scheduled for 5:30 PM Eastern Daylight Time, July 17.

Much speculation has appeared as to what new or recycled birther rumor they will present under the stern gaze of Joe Arpaio, Maricopa County Sheriff and WorldNetDaily spokesperson. Sheriff Joe has decades experience in law enforcement  projecting authority and looking serious. One expects the Sheriff’s Cheap Detective1, Mike Zullo, to do most of the talking.

I’ve spent some time thinking about how this blog should report the birther story, and I realized that there is an important distinction between talk and action. President Obama releasing his long-form birth certificate was action.  My editorial stance is that talk is cheap and that actions speak louder than words. The Cold Case Posse to date has been all talk.

This is the article to discuss the “press conference.” I’ll add updates later.

Here’s the link:

    I use gmail to do just that, I was thinking of using the same oneso I logged in to it and it took 10 minutes to load, There were over 300 emails on it.

    Personally I’m not interested in giving WND anything that may be of use to them (and besides, I already have a regular gmail, getting anyother one would be a pita). Besides, I get some childish glee from the fact that every time they try to send anythng to the new defunct mail account, it’ll bounce on them.

    As for the phone number, as others have mentioned, there are several publicly listed phone numbers to choose from – personally, I’d go with the White House switchboard phone #.

    Incidently, this all reminds me of the time when the internet was in its infancy, and the only method most websites would have of blocking non-US viewers, was by having them input a US postal code. Unfortunately, this was also the time when Beverly Hills 90210 was still running. I chuckle at the though of the millions of people using that particular postal code. I know I used it to access Pandora, before they figured out how to block people based on their IP…

    Trilogy? This is, by my count, already Arpaio’s 4th birther “happening”. Don’t succumb to the “it all blurs together” amnesia. WND runs on that crap. Keep’em accounted and accountable!

    His next “event” will complete a Pentateuch.

    I believe there is a hearing with the Justice Dept on the 19th? Guess which was scheduled first?

    Fearless predicction: Arpie goes down in flames (to some degree), and WND spins it as revenge for the revelation of the 17th. Sigh.

    A staffer walked up to a Xerox multifunction device in the white house, lifted the lid, placed the document on the glass (hopefully with an appropriate amount of care), lowered the lid, selected his inbox, and hit the ‘SCAN’ button.

    That’s all it took.

    I have provided links to white papers and patents detailing Xerox’s multi-raster compression algorithms before.

    My company has a client that scans documents to us on a Xerox. One came in today. All the tell-tale signs are there. Bitmapped text layers, low-quality jpeg backgrounds, white halos, clipping paths, and layers, layers, LAYERS!!!

    Cracks me up every time one comes in.

    Unfortunately, these docs are confidential, so I can’t share. Anyone have access to a Xerox machine? I guess I could check around the local copy shops, but since birfers would simply retreat slideways to a nearby reinforcement meme, what’s the motivation?

    Good cartoon! Portman is extremely bland. I live here in Ohio and we’ve never had such a non-entity as him in office. He only became Senator due to the Tea Party wave election of 2010, not for anything of his own accord. The GOP could have run an empty box of cereal that year and the results would still have been the same. Also, the guy has ties to being part of Bush’s economic team…so where he isn’t boring, he’s just a negative.

    But then again, Romney’s ego seems to point towards finding a running mate that won’t “outshine” him… that really sets the bar low and limits things. The only choice that would be even more effete and boring that Portman is Pawlenty. If Romney goes in either of those directions, it will easily be the most underwhelming ticket the GOP or any major party has put forward.

    Exactly why it would have a great chance. It’s plain vanilla, ultra-bland, boring, safe. (Depending how you look at it; I think empty suits are dangerous) Plus the name Portman has some attractive associations.

    I’m holding out hope for something more braindead / divisive on Romney’s part. I agree it is odd to have the cardboard cutout at the top of the ticket. That’s what the Veep slot of for!

    If you didn’t notice, there’s a lot of stuff at the White House that’s done on the taxpayers’ dime. There are state dinners. There were tours at one time. The WH staffer who publishes the President’s tax returns is doing so while being paid by the taxpayer.

    The freaking First Lady has a personal secretary. They end up responding to letters from the public, and they’re **gasp** printed and mailed at the taxpayers’ expense. When the President flies on vacation, the flight is made at the taxpayers’ expense whether it’s Obama going back to Hawaii or W coming in to Crawford.

    That someone working for the federal government would be tasked for something like this is not exactly earthshattering.

    For the sake of argument, let’s assume that the PDF of Obama’s birth certificate posted on the Whtie House web site was created from scratch by a forger. Given that the State of Hawaii has provided an official certification that the information that is on it is correct, how would proof of that forgery change the fact that Obama was born on August 4, 1961 in Hawaii?

    P.S. Hey Zullo, no one wanted to touch it because of the “nature of the document” because there was no paper document to examine.

    The path to Obama’s birth certificate, as told by someone who’s looked

    you can do the entire investigation in a single day: Leave DC first thing in the morning, obtain the documents, and you’ll still have time to sip a mai-tai on the beach before catching your flight home in the evening. He even went on Expedia and made me an itinerary: the whole trip would only cost $1228.40 (mai-tai not included).

    Didn’t Doc C establish a long time ago that the pencil notation 9 indicated “other” ie everything not specifically covered elsewhere in the numbering key code?

    This is subtly different from what Zullo is suggesting ie that the number 9 only covered blank entries. if “African” didn’t meet the criteria for inclusion in any of the remaining number codes, number 9 would have been quite correct.

    It is easy to imagine how whatever the 95 year old Mrs Lee said in a telephone call in response to a question the wording of which we also don’t know could be twisted to mean what Zullo/Corsi would like it to mean as the two meanings are relatively close to each other.

    Y’all (DP, Dave B, MattR, justlw, JRC, JoZeppy) don’t discuss what was released, which, again is that V Lee has confirmed that it could not possibly be the case that, for the race field, both the #9 and ‘african’ are used.
    #9 always indicates ‘not stated’ and would have been double checked by a person whose job was to verify this forms. its hard to mess up.
    plus, had ‘african’ actually been written onto a long form in the 60s the ‘verifiers’ probably would have started to laugh, having never seen such a race described on a lfbc previously as he would have been referred to has ‘negro’ for gov’t purposes.

    The Doc’s explanation continues to fail to explain #9, ie. how ‘African’ could have possibly made its way onto a document that was it checked by at least two people who would have quickly corrected the field to ‘negro’ had that been the case
    OR
    the field was blank, as #9 indicates for the ’61 coding Doc posted and ‘African’ was added later.

    If you read the link right above your comment, you will see that Doc C got a hold of the official instructions related to the coding of these fields and ‘9’ indicates ‘other (nonwhite)’ and not blank as Zullo says the 95 year old Verna Lee indicated to him. There is nothing surprising that African and/or Negro would be used to describe the father, but other (nonwhite) is used for the mixed race child (EDIT: oops. Did not realize that they coded African as other (nonwhite), but that too is not that surprising if the father was trying to differentiate from an American black man (aka Negro))

    PS. Yes, the verifiers might have laughed at ‘African’. But how many births do you think they registered in Hawaii for a child with a parent born and raised in Africa?

    PPS. Should have read to the bottom and realized this was a 9/11 truther as well which means he is totally immune to logic and reason.

    First off, I didn’t hear a peep out of Ms. Lee, and to be honest, considering the volumes of B.S. from Zullo, I really don’t trust is version of any converstation….and if you really think that a 90 year old woman remembers what the coding for one particular block of a birth certificate was 50 years ago, you really are a gullible chap (besides, coding has been examined here before…again, back to that point of this press conference being nothing more than a rehash of long debunked birther theories).

    DaveS: plus, had ‘african’ actually been written onto a long form in the 60s the ‘verifiers’ probably would have started to laugh, having never seen such a race described on a lfbc previously as he would have been referred to has ‘negro’ for gov’t purposes.

    I guess Zullo’s rehashing long debunked birther theoires made you jealous, and you wanted to join in the fun?

    DaveS: I don’t really care that this document is clearly a forgery for what could possibly be done about it?

    Clearly….sad that someone can orchestrate this massive conspiracy lasting over 50 years, without anyone ever being implicated in it, but yet they can’t get a decent forger…that makes sense.

    DaveS: You seem to really care that others care that it might be a forgery.

    Care is the wrong word….immensely amused is probably a better description.

    DaveS: You guys mock the 9/11 truthers too, right?

    Yes….I also mock flat earthers and other forms of do general loonies.

    DaveS: So the story goes, some A-rabs bombed us for our freedoms. Is that right?

    Actually, the story goes bin Laden orchestrated the attack because we had our troops on Saudi soil, among other general gripes against the US. It’s not like it was the first time he tried to attack US targets generally, or the WTC specifically. But hey, feel free to hide under your tin foil hat, and scream about the black helicopters….I can always use more entertainment.

    DaveS:
    Hey MattR

    That’s all cool that the Doc personally got a hold of a different set of official instructions that differ from the one Arpaio’s gang got…..whatever. You guys can agree to disagree hahah

    But why is it not weird to have ‘African’ indicated if this isn’t showing up on any other BCs of the era, or hawaii specifically and why is it not in the coding?

    Here’s the thing. Arapaios’ gang did not get their hands on a set of instructions. They relied on a phone conversation with a 95 year old woman. If you trust a 95 year old’s memory more than contemperaneous documents, that is up to you. (EDIT: FWIW, by 1968 the coding had been changed so that ‘9’ did in fact indicate ‘unknown or not stated’. So it is quite possible that Ms Lee is remembering the wrong set of codes)

    As Jamese777 pointed out, the dept of Hawaii accepted however the parents chose to self identify. The point of the coding is to take the nearly infinite possibilities that can come from that and convert that to a small, finite set of values. Therefore I would not expect to see every possible answer having its own code. Perhaps African should have been coded to ‘Negro’ or perhaps ‘other (nonwhite)’ makes sense. Either way, I don’t think it is unreasonable that either of those two values would have been chosen and there is nothing suspicious about the decision to use ‘9’ over ‘2’

    Actually, I was really hoping there’d be new information. You may have noticed I was truly delighted to hear that Verna Lee was still with us. I’d love to ask her if my theory is true: that she intentionally “slurred” her first initial to a U, as a fun thing for new parents to discover on the BC.

    …but as far as the “forgery” side of the story is concerned, there wasn’t any new information.

    Again, you may have noticed that this was explained here: the pencil marks have been discussed and dismissed long ago, and the “investigators”‘ inability to get over that they’re subject to the same privacy laws as the rest of us does not constitute “explosive evidence.”

    Finally, I’m actually kind of ticked off that my paid shill salary hasn’t been everything I’d hoped for. But I’m nothing if not a professional, so I carry on nonetheless.

    I don’t but I would like to rewatch the end. I mentioned it above, but I am just realizing that the CCP is starting with the assumption that the State of Hawaii provided a PDF copy of the birth certificate to Obama so he could post it on the Internet. The rest of us recognize that the State of Hawaii provided a printed document to Obama who then arranged for it to be scanned and posted to the Internet (in addition to showing the paper copy to a couple reporters). Zullo seems to believe that posting that scanned copy, even while clearly indicating that it was a scanned copy of a paper original, constitutes criminal fraud and/or forgery. At least I think that is correct, but I would need to rewatch to confirm that (though honestly I don’t know if my brain can handle being forced to listen to that a second time)

    This is not the only smoking gun, however. I only listened to 5 minutes of the press conference (I had to go do something) but in just that brief time I heard the V. K. Lee false claim and another that I can document as a lie.

    I will do an article as time permits on the whole thing. I already have the title in mind.

    MattR: If you read the link right above your comment, you will see that Doc C got a hold of the official instructions related to the coding of these fields and ’9′ indicates ‘other (nonwhite)’ and not blank as Zullo says the 95 year old Verna Lee indicated to him.

    You’d also be ignoring the dozens of doctored pentagon 9/11 photos, eyewitness testimonies as to multiple explosions, some beneath them (in the basement), next to zero debris from either the pennsylvania and the pentagon especially but WTCs as well as far as super exotic alloy components within the jet turbine (much of it) that don’t come close to melting in such fires and an endless string of unimaginable coincidences including several dozen israeli suspects being detained in the hours and days following 9/11 only to simultaneously be released weeks later with no info given as to why they were detained in the first place or why they were all released.

    BillTheCat: MCSO’s press release:

    Chock full o’ fail, as you might expect.

    Under Hawaii statute, a person only has to be an established resident of Hawaii, not necessarily a U.S. citizen, in that state and pay taxes there for one year to be able to register an out of state or foreign born person with an official Hawaii birth certificate.

    The law, Hawaii Revised Statute 338-17.8 states:
    “Upon application of an adult or the legal parents of a minor child, the director of health shall issue a birth certificate for such adult or minor, provided that proof has been submitted to the director of health that the legal parents of such individual while living without the Territory or State of Hawaii had declared the Territory or State of Hawaii as their legal residence for at least one year immediately preceding the birth or adoption of such child.”

    Sheriff Arpaio and his investigators have grave concerns about this Hawaii Revised Statute believing it could be a gaping loophole that makes it possible for foreign born people to legally establish U.S. citizenship even if neither parent is an American citizen.

    Well, no. Because the certificate the State of Hawaii would issue would say, “This person was born in such and such a foreign country or state other than Hawaii.”

    It would not say, as the CCP is hoping you’ll think, “This person was born at Kapiolani Hospital at this very specific date and time, as witnessed by this person.”

    Didn’t swear that. Swore that there was no reason to release anything else. Which remains true.

    “Abercrombie then searched and came up with zilch.”

    What he was looking for was a document publicly releasable without heroic efforts. He did find the vital records log, so you’re doubly incorrect here.

    “Who really started it” was discussed here not too long ago, with the evidence being that it was not the Hillary camp.

    justlw: Well, no. Because the certificate the State of Hawaii would issue would say, “This person was born in such and such a foreign country or state other than Hawaii.”

    It would not say, as the CCP is hoping you’ll think, “This person was born at Kapiolani Hospital at this very specific date and time, as witnessed by this person.”

    DaveS: So, where was the President born, if he wasn’t born in Hawaii? Do you actually believe his mother flew 12,000 miles for 3 days to a third-world country that was still recovering from an independence struggle where she didn’t know a soul just to drop a baby and then hightailed it home, somehow sneaking the baby in through Canada or Mexico or something? That’s a ridiculous story. Even you can see that right? So, we can be certain he wasn’t born in Kenya.

    In fact, the only story that actually makes sense is the really boring one, where he was born where his mother lived (as 99.99999% of people are) and all the information on the certificate is correct. And since common sense says that is what happened, why forge it?

    You really need to use the brain you were given and think about what actually makes sense.

    Remember , it was Hillary’s camp that began the birther issue, mostly.

    The reason you don’t see more serious comments is that most people posting here and following this issue have been over every single point many times before and there is no new news to debunk.
    For example, Governor Abercrombie’s trip to the Department of Health was easily explained by Fox News” a year ago. Abercrombie was looking in the wrong place.
    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2011/04/27/obama-birth-certificate-moved-secure-location-months-ago/
    Since Hillary Clinton was running against Barack Obama in the primaries, it made perfect sense for her campaign to look for whatever they could find out about Obama. They found nothing, gave up (as did the McCain campaign) and today Hillary works for the President as his Secretary of State.
    If someone were to actually come up with something relevant that is new, I’m sure you would see serious discussion of that information here but rehashed old discredited rumors and innuendos? Not so much.

    Because you are nothing but a glib doofus, who decided to pop in here and spout off on stuff without doing your homework.

    As others have tried to inform you, this site isn’t new. None of these crazy claims are new. They have ALL been debunked and covered in numerous other articles already archived here on this site.

    If you are actually interested in the “debunking”, then read the archives. These long-dead horses have all been thoroughly addressed on here. There is simply nothing new to add, except to laugh, when the same moldy nonsense rears its ugly head again.

    We don’t have to endlessly repeat that water is wet and the sun rises in the east either. *sheesh*

    david: I read about 20 comments, absolutely zero analysis of evidence here. Peanut gallery in hi self congratulatory mode, I was hoping for some real debunking.

    See, your own statements only serve to show how ignorant you are. The COLB which he initially released to the public in 2008, ( which NO other candidate nor president before had ever released, by the way), IS the ONLY OFFICIAL birth certificate form provided by the state of HI. That has been their only official form and format for well over a decade.

    The LFBC that he asked for in 2010 had to be generated by special request and permission, as a permittable discretionary exception within HI laws. It wasn’t necessary and only served to confirm EVERY bit of data already known from the COLB. Which of course is another *DUH*, as the information generated on both forms comes from the same source data.

    There WAS nothing else to release. NOR was the LFBC ever necessary. Simple as that.

    david: Come on people, the only way to end this is to stop the jokes and snide remarks and offer real insights into why a brief BC receipt was offered as the real Mccoy for two yrs and the anti- birthers swore there was nothing else to release,

    Again, you demonstrate that you are simply a gullible conspiracy nut, with no actual knowledge, beyond what you read off of amateur conspiracy sites. There was no LFBC to “find”. It had to be created from the original source document, which is NEVER released for anyone.

    You are incorrect about the Abercrombie situation too: He vowed to inquire about getting it released and did just that. The inquiry came back that he does not have the authority to access nor release original vault birth documents either, regardless of who they are for.

    So there was nothing he couldn’t “find”, because he never actually “looked”. He asked if he can access such things and was told “no”. Welcome to reality – NO is a valid answer and the HI DOH is tasked with protecting and maintaining ALL source documents under their purview, for ALL citizens.

    You are a gullible and irrationally paranoid fool.

    david: Then the gov elect of Hawaii swears he will find the long form BC ( since by this time there was a murmuring that it did exist, it had not been destroyed after all) …Abercrombie then searched and came up with zilch.
    Later it was found again and was presented online , about two days after the Bin ladin thing, Can one really be smug about this when the sand beneath your feet shifts so much?

    Not her “camp”, no. You simply mean the pathetic PUMAs – a bunch of independent supposed Hillary “followers” on the internet, who did nothing but come up with whiny excuses for why their “Dear Hillary” lost the Primaries…or for why they hated Obama.

    Most of the PUMAs voted for McCain in the last election and then moved onto become Birthers, Tea Partiers, Palinistas, etc. Regardless of what many of them”claimed” to be before that point in time, they primarily vote only GOP since 2008…so their claim to be “democratic voters” is tenuous and suspect, at best.

    So there really is no difference between the pathetic and irrational kookiness on display, from the PUMAs and Birthers – just a bunch of nobody derangement-syndrome suffering bitter folks on the internet, who come up with a mythology of excuses for their tantrums.

    BC receipt? What BC receipt? Apparently you are confusing Obama’s short form birth certificate (which in format closely resembles my New York birth certificate) with a “receipt.” This is not a receipt. It’s an actual birth certificate.

    http://factcheck.org/Images/image/birth_certificate_images/birth_certificate_2.jpg

    As for Abercrombie, if you want to be taken seriously here you need to get your facts straight. Abercrombie never promised to “find” or produce the LFBC. He said that he would look for something which he could release which would prove that Obama was born in Hawaii. After he took office, Abercrombie was advised that there was nothing in the DOH records which he could release without running afoul of Hawaii law, so he dropped it.

    This is an independent blog about conspiracy theories and fringe views about Barack Obama. The views expressed here have no endorsement from any political party or government organization.

    The purpose of this blog as our byline, fishing for the gold coin in a bucket of mud, says, is examining a vast array of claims, rumors and even lawsuits about Barack Obama and his eligibility to be president, to see if anything there has credible backing.

    Again, answers you could easily find for yourself (such as the vast array of archives addressing and thoroughly debunking all of the Birtherism nonsense), if only you weren’t such a lazy fool.

    You only have yourself to blame for coming across like an idiot here. That’s what happens when ignorant people shoot their mouths off, with no clue or factual basis to back them…

    If he thinks the President was involved in the forgery, then wouldn’t one of the investigative committees of Congress be the logical place? Given how much they have accomplished since the Tea Crowd took over, they certainly can’t claim to be busy.

    On the other hand, if the President was not involved, but is being punked by a staffer, then just tell the Chief of Staff and have him tell the guy to knock it off.

    A somewhat disturbing thought, which leads to a kind of hilarious discovery.

    My sobering realization: The CCP’s revelation that Verna Lee is alive and living in Hawaii means that they’ve just opened her up to a ton of botheration — especially from the birthers, but even from well-meaning Obots who’d like to know just what she told the CCP.

    This led to a quick check on the net to see if she’s that hard to find (probable answer: no. After all, even the CCP could find her).

    I hate to give people any kind of a clue, but I figure it’s too late, anyway. I also am pessimistic that Corsi and company bothered to give her any kind of a warning that she should take some immediate steps to protect her privacy.

    That being said… an extremely cursory Google search very quickly found a Verna K Lee who lives in Honolulu.

    She lives on… wait for it…

    From EJ Montini:

    “After all the presentations, the videos and the question-and-answer period after the press conference the headline to come out of the event is not: “Obama birth certificate a fake”

    Or: “State and federal authorities involved in massive cover-up.”

    Or: “Every single birth certificate in Hawaii is suspect? (Say it ain’t so, Don Ho.)”

    Or: “Why is the entire world ignoring us!!!!???”

    Each of them would reflect the impression left from Tuesday’s press conference but wouldn’t tell the REAL story. The only proper headline to accompany a sideshow like the one put on by Arpaio and his cronies on Tuesday would have to be:

    “All Crimes in Maricopa County Solved!”

    After all, if there were actual criminals perpetrating actual misdeeds within the sheriff’s jurisdiction would he have time to engage in another birther extravaganza?

    No.

    So, every crime must be solved. Every investigation must be completed. He must have NOTHING else to do.

    And there must be no other potentially embarassing news event pending from which the sheriff would like to divert attention.”

    Just for the heck of it. I just checked the priceline.com, hotwire.com, expedia.com and orbitz.com for flights from Hawaii to Mombasa, Kenya. In 2012, to go from Honolulu International Airport (HNL) to Mombasa – Moi International Airport (MBA), one would need to take at least 4 different flights. A trip requiring 3 flights would cost around $6000. Again, this is year 2012! I can’t even imagine the number of flights Obama’s mother had to take in 1961 IF she had actually traveled to Kenya from Hawaii, delivered Obama and hightailed back to Hawaii so she can register her son as a US citizen. I doubt Dunhams could have afforded the trip much less allowed their 18-year-old pregnent daughter to leave the country. Above all, America is a land of opportunity. People risk their lives to get here. Why would a woman go half way around the world so her child will be a citizen of a poor country with so many problems in 1961.

    Actually, outside of where one’s personal patience will always vary their reactions, my method of reaction to these folks has been fairly consistent, since the beginning.

    It mostly comes down to cause and effect: My attitude in response is often a counter-reflection of the attitude that the poster is giving off.

    This particular clown happened to come in like a bull-in-the-china-shop and quickly went off the rails on Truther rants…so he quickly established several reasons to not be taken seriously or be shown much patience, in return.

    But you are correct in noticing that with time and experience, it becomes quicker to see through these nutters and their disingenuousness. Some may view that , as hardening cynicism. I would say it is well-founded cynicism.

    Bottom line: I have little tolerance of arrogant ignorance and have traditionally shown harsher responses to those that come here with an attitude. Those that are able to (at least for awhile), put on a more adult and sincere argument, are merely given more chances and softer latitude by me, in return. So, my treatment of various posters here has fairly followed that pattern in a consistent manner, all along.

    SluggoJD: \Man, you’ve come a long ways from those days when you were so nice to every racist a$$ole that showed up.
    Nice and smooth these days!

    You’ve got to think outside the box. The most obvious solution to this problem is that Stanley Anne was brought aboard USS Nautilus when she was at Pearl, and the CIA arranged to have her brought to Kenya and back via nuclear submarine. Now some of you truthy types will tell me that during the early sixites, Nautilus spent all her time in the Atlantic and the Mediterrean. Go ahead, believe what the government tells you. But when you’re ready to leave the Matrix, I’ll be waiting with the Kool-aid. Wait, did I just mix up my pop-culture references?

    ObiWanCannoli: Again, this is year 2012! I can’t even imagine the number of flights Obama’s mother had to take in 1961 IF she had actually traveled to Kenya from Hawaii, delivered Obama and hightailed back to Hawaii so she can register her son as a US citizen.

    I need everybody’s help, it’s serious. I really believed Sheriff Joe would initiate the frog marching today, so I purchased $55,000.00 worth of frogs, I figured I could make a profit on the birthers, then Sheriff Joe flopped, struck out, now I am stuck, that was my retirement money, please someone help.. Joe promised the sound of frogs instead he gave the sound of crickets. Anyone for frog legs?

    Misha’s covered this quite thoroughly several years ago on his blog. The key takeaway, at least to me, is that 1961 was the bare dawn of the commercial jet age, so don’t expect any of these legs to be as fast as they are today.

    Oh, I just spotted an old thread about this on The Straight Dope message board, complete with the requisite birther. Does the handle “Susanann” ring any bells with anyone?

    Thanks for the link, as I was working at the time!

    The preamble (“we never intended to blow tax payer’s money, really!”) had me in stitches, and I lost it and had to pause when Joe said his intention was to ‘clear’ Obama.

    Man, this is going to take awhile!

    Also, as I have repeatedly noted, Linda Lingle is Jewish. She felt McCain/Palin would be better for Israel than Obama. If she could have found anything, the GOP would have used it with glee.

    This site is about Obama’s eligibility and those conspiracy theories surrounding it.

    It is quite simple, it is not whether he should be president, but is he eligible. That is all.

    And it did, but I survived. Whew. One good ramble deserves another ….

    Loving the pick-and-choose …. “We’re sure the birth certificate is fraudulent, but we’re’ convinced the handwritten numerals are authentic and were placed on a 50-yr old document.”

    “Remember: All Layers are Not the Same!”

    1,200 tests?!? “One used windows, one used a Mac, they used various software.” It’s the scanning hardware itself, dolts! Did anyone designing these ‘test’ make inquiries as to the conditions the PDF was purportedly created under?

    “Corsi is a Harvard PhD trained in statistics” (what?) … so, obviously he knows what integers on a birth certificate mean.

    The sent a homicide investigator to look into this?!? Oh, dear, who whould Zullo take to Hawaii with him? There was no cost to the taxpayer …. right, even if reimbursed, you just borrowed some manpower.
    _____

    Halfway through, enjoying the logic leaps! Boy, right around 42:00 he loses it, dissolves into a rant! Quite a birfy birf, Zullo.
    ____________

    Arpiao is doddering along, rambling about microfilm … he ignores the audience: “What will the microfilm show?” LOL!

    Zullo donated all his book profits to his church?

    Multiples pleas of “Oh, if only they answered this onnnnnne question … but no, they said I was asking for a ‘verification'” …. followed up with a rejection of verifications provided. Gosh, didn’t see that coming.

Seriously one of the biggest liars of a politician that I have ever seen in politics, and I’ve seen some doozies. Just about everything that comes out of his mouth regarding the President is a verifiable lie.

    There is NO controversy. There are a bunch of malcontents making stuff up and those of us observing and commenting on their shameful behavior. That’s about it.

    Real life will continue to go out outside the walls of every internet blog, no matter what hobbies people pursue. Rest assured of that.

    I’m a college student. When not posting here or reading posts here, I study and do class assignments. When those are done, I watch TV and play video games. I also do some audio visual editing stuff (it involves adding customized Rifftrax commentary tracks to DVDs).

    Do you understand how time works? You split it between your responsibilities, your hobbies, and catering to your survival needs (eating, drinking, sleeping, and hygiene, though I guess that could be categorized as a subset of responsibilities). Time spent here is clearly a subset of hobbies. Why is it Birthers never understand that? Do they just hate disagreement and hope they can shut us up by saying “That’s not important! Stop talking about it.”

    Oh, also, like G said, there is no controversy. Obama’s birth in Hawaii is well settled, moreso than any United States president in history.

    Yes, that is exactly what these particular types of tantrums from them are really trying to say.

    A more literal translation from that Troll would be along these lines: “How dare you keep pointing out our lies. Stop that!!!… waaagh! ”
