Anti-Obama books abound at CPAC

Business Insider reports:

A quick spin around the CPAC book store reveals a range of narratives about the President, indicating that the market for Obama conspiracy theories is still thriving, even in his second term.

Sigh.

Orly was there too, cornering such notables as Reagan’s Attorney General Edwin Meese (who was not indicted in the Iraq – Jordan Pipeline scandal), former Senator Jim DeMint, and Republican Congressmen to whom she showed her exhibits that document that President Obama has a social-security number from the series assigned to Connecticut (Connecticut apparently not in the United States of Birthistan).

    Sheriff Arpaio’s lead investigator of the Maricopa County Sheriff Department’s Cold Case Posse, Mike Zullo is at CPAC accompanied by a Carl Gallops. Gallops called a radio station yesterday and said Zullo had a forensics laboratory sign off on what I presume is the birth certificate stating it is a forgery. Is this true? Here is his call to the radio station recorded from yesterday.

    When has Zullo ever had “the birth certificate”? He’s never had anything other than a pdf scan. It’s like judging the authenticity of the Mona Lisa by looking at a coffee mug with her image on it.

    Carl Gallups has a tendency to make these wild “something is about to happen” pronouncements regarding secret evidence but then nothing happens. Even many on ORYR no longer trust his statements.

    Is it true? Maybe in Gallups’s mind.

    Did anyone else need to refer to Wikipedia to be reminded of Meese’s place in history? Now if they had been referring to C. E. Kenneth Mees[e], that would not have been necessary.

    Haven’t you seen the latest? Scholars now are certain Michelangelo really was the one who painted the Mona Lisa. Actually, I believe it was Zullo who discovered that fact. I don’t think it was a coffee cup, though. My very limited understanding, don’t yell at me if I’m wrong, is he saw an image on Facebook, and that he knew right away. The smile is what gave it away I think.

    Here is the link:

    In my mind, nothing Mike Zullo says that he is going to do is news.

    Not until your prompting. I had a fair background on the guy. But at your prompting I looked him up and am not sorry to remember this stuff:

    From an interview:

    U.S News & World Report: You criticize the Miranda ruling, which gives suspects the right to have a lawyer present before police questioning. Shouldn’t people, who may be innocent, have such protection?
    Meese: Suspects who are innocent of a crime should. But the thing is, you don’t have many suspects who are innocent of a crime. That’s contradictory. If a person is innocent of a crime, then he is not a suspect.

    For someone who was so vocal about wanting the Supreme Court to rule according to original intent of the Constitution, he seems to play a bit fast and loose with the idea of innocent until proven guilty.

    He also claimed:

    “One of our most effective weapons against drug traffickers,” Meese wrote in his autobiography, “was to confiscate the assets of their criminal activity, such as expensive autos, yachts, businesses, and homes… To make this technique even more effective, we shared the proceeds with cooperating local law enforcement agencies to enhance their drug-fighting activities”

    Which basically caused Law Enforcement Agencies to become addicted to confiscation as a funding mechanism, exposing them to more corruption temptation, and more likely to ignore less lucrative lines of law enforcement (for example, rape of Hispanic women in Maricopa County). This process has done absolutely nothing to reduce the illegal drug trade, but it has raised the street prices astronomically. The only ones who benefit are the drug tycoons (not the street level dealers). Every time there is a big bust, the street prices go up, not due to market “supply and demand” forces (the supply is barely affected, if at all), but because the publicity allows them to pretend that the supply is affected.

    Is this what passes for a sophisticated insult in birther circles?

    You may notice that, even in the French version, the real schmuck is revealed to be the one doing the inviting.

    So…how many people did you want to invite again?

    Just got my invite. Though I have to wonder: why is my name written in red crayon when everything else is black ink? Hmm… upon closer inspection, it looks like this is a photocopy. It looks like the original had the invitee’s name whited out incompletely. Looks like four letters. The first letter is curved on the left, an ‘O’ or ‘C’, or perhaps a ‘G’. The last letter has a curve in the bottom right quadrant – a ‘c’ or ‘o’, maybe an ‘e’ or a ‘b’.
