Taitz v. Democratic Party of Mississippi 9/24 hearing transcript

Attorneys Scott Tepper and Sam Begley representing the Mississippi Democratic Executive Committee participated in a special edition of Reality Check Radio and other representatives of the anti-birther community have filed reports on the September 24, 2012 hearing in Jackson, Mississippi before federal district judge Henry T. Wingate, in a case where Orly Taitz claims Obama isn’t eligible to be President and that he, along with the Democratic Party and the State of Hawaii, are engaging in an organized criminal conspiracy (RICO) to hide all of this.

Now we have the official transcript of the hearing, thanks to Jack Jack Ryan collection on Scribd, and I include that below.

Before continuing, consider that these court transcripts and docket entries don’t come cheap. Many thousands of dollars have been spent in obtaining the Jack Ryan collection.

Two films smear Obama

“There is no evidence for any of this”

So says The Daily Beast’s Michelle Goldberg of Dinesh D’Souza’s book and film, Obama’s America, and it’s claims about Barack Obama’s mother. Goldberg has equally disparaging remarks for Joel Gilbert’s film, Dreams from My Real Father.

Despite their dubious claims, Obama’s America reached the number one spot on the NY Times bestseller list and Dreams is being mailed to a reported one million voters in Ohio and other states.

The title of Goldberg’s article is: “With ‘Dreams From My Real Father,’ Have Obama Haters Hit Rock Bottom?” My answer to this question is that Obama haters have been bottom feeders from the beginning, and this is not a new low. I will admit that this latest round is far worse than what I wrote about in my article, “It’s an insult to his mother” back in August of 2009. I can’t help but believe that most Americans will not react kindly to Obama’s mother being portrayed as a “fat whore.”

Personally, I think Obama takes after his grandfather, Stanley Dunham. Look at the eyes.

Toughest sheriff may be biggest fraud

Joe Arpaio shaking fistThat’s what Republican Bill Gore, San Diego County Sheriff, said of prominent Obama conspiracy theorist Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Arizona (pictured right).

Gore criticized Arpaio for expeditions out of his jurisdiction to Hawaii, calling Arpaio’s actions “an embarrassment.”

Photoshopped Obama photo appears in Romney ad

I wrote about the Photoshopped photo of Barack Obama, subtracted from a photo of his grandparents. That photo keeps popping up online and on TV, and now Conan O’Brien showed a Romney campaign ad with the photo!

This is a really strange ad, and the Republicans must be getting pretty desperate, bypassing the birther conspiracy theories and getting to the very heart of denying the legitimacy of Barack Obama as President of the United States.

Check out the video for yourself.

Family annihilator feared Obama reelection

A history of mental illness, the loss of a dear uncle, and a growing fear of Obama winning a second term in the White House took its toll on the mind of Mr. Peterson, a wealthy defense contractor, the friend said.

So reports the Daily Mail in a chilling story of murder and suicide. Defense contractor Albert Peterson shot to death his wife and two children (aged 13 and 16) and then himself. Neighbors told the newspaper that Mr. Peterson became increasingly paranoid about would would happen to the country if Obama was reelected.

The Washington Post reported another neighbor said:

He was worried about everything. He felt the economy was going in the wrong direction. He was worried about politics. He couldn’t shake things.

I’m somewhat of an expert on family annihilators, having watched a 2004 TV episode of Law and Order on that topic1. <faux expert>The family annihilator feels that they are at the center of their family and bear the total responsibility for the family’s wellbeing. If they become convinced that they cannot fulfill that role, they think it is better that the family, including themself, die rather than to fail due to his shortcomings.</faux expert>

Polling conspiracies

imageI saw in passing a bit on the Rachel Maddow show on MSNBC that there was a story circulating that all the polls are being manipulated (even the Fox News Poll1) to show Obama ahead, when he’s actually not ahead. I wouldn’t always trust Maddow to report a story representing the best possible case from the other side, but what she said was that these conspiracy theorists say that the polls are biased because they polled more Democrats than Republicans, and that they should have polled more representative numbers of each.

Let me give an example. Let’s say that there are 100,000,000 Democrats and 1,000 Republicans, and to simplify matters that all the Democrats are supporting Obama and all the Republicans Romney. In a random poll of 1,000 people (a typical size for such polls) one would get 999 Democrats and 1 Republican, and the polls would show Obama winning with 99.9% of the vote. The objectors say that a fair poll would survey 500 Republicans and 500 Democrats and the poll would show both candidates at 50%. Maybe the objection is a little more sophisticated than that.

You can read it from the horse’s mouth at UnSkewedPolls.com. Here are their assumptions:

The QStarNews poll works with the premise that the partisan makeup of the electorate 34.8 percent Republicans, 35.2 percent Democrats and 30.0 percent independent voters. Additionally, our model is based on the electorate including approximately 41.0 percent conservatives, 20.0 percent moderates and 39.0 percent liberals.

Republicans are 68 percent conservative, 27 percent moderate and 5 percent liberal. Among Democrats, 14 percent are conservative, 36 percent are moderate and 50 percent are liberal. Independents include 39 percent conservatives, 36 percent moderates and 25 percent liberals.

Our polls about (sic) doubly-weighted, to doubly insure the results are most accurate and not skewed, by both party identification and self-identified ideology. For instance, no matter how many Republicans answer our survey, they are weighted at 37.6 percent. If conservatives are over-represented among Republicans in the raw sample, they are still weighted at 68 percent of Republicans regardless. This system of double weighting should insure our survey produces very accurate results, not skewed either way for the Democrats or for the Republicans.
