Mumble

A while back, I read and used a writing style in which private information was redacted by inserting the word “mumble” in the text, such as “according to my sources [mumble] is a CIA field agent.”

So today I got an email notifying me that I had a private message over at [mumble] and what I found there was rather interesting, a continuation of a private conversation that has been going on for a while. [Mumble] wrote that he had received confirmation of his formal [mumble] about [mumble]. I read the thing back when it was filed, and it was wonderfully detailed, legally sound, and totally devastating, pointing out egregious misconduct on the part of [mumble] and arguing convincingly that such conduct was worthy of [mumble].

I’ll be the first to say that an anonymous report is worthless (unless you trust the source), but I think that there is a real chance that [mumble] and his [mumble] will get their comeuppance in a very public way, although probably not very soon since the wheels of [mumble] turn slowly.

I trust that I have been sufficiently vague that no one will have the slightest idea what I’m talking about (and if you made a guess, it’s probably wrong). What I actually wanted to share in this article is that one of the perks of this job is a little inside information now and again, and to say that sometimes things are a little better than they seem.

    Okay so someone filed a formal complaint with a State Bar and there is some hope that there will be a more public display of his complaint.

    Anywhere close?

    “sometimes things are a little better than they seem”

    This last line above makes up for an otherwise [mumble] post.

    I’m intrigued to find out what the mumbles are!!!

    But I was checking out birther stuff yesterday and found some site that has almost a whole section about you. Some guy named Lyle Sanders or something… Not just you, but also stuff about that lawyer lady Lauren Collins.

    Birfthers are kooky!

    You weren’t vague enough, because you said “mumble and HIS mumble” rather than mumbling the whole thing.

    So I know it’s not about Orly, and that makes me sad.

    I’ve never heard of Lyle Sanders, nor Lauren Collins for that matter. There is a Loren Collins, but he’s a guy.

    Cheer up. Many complaints have been filed about Orly Taitz already. However, until she murders a client, it doesn’t appear that the California Bar Association is interested.

    Don’t know about Lyle Sanders, but I think by Lauren Collins, they’re actually referring to Loren Collins, a lawyer from the State of Georgia. He posts at most of the anti-brither sites, including this one here.

    NOTE: Edited by author to remove any reference to his posting name (though most people can figure it out, and I don’t think he’d mind).

    Loren is also the guy behind http://barackryphal.blogspot.com.au/, and was responsible for absolutely crucifying Joel Gilbert’s crapalooza dvd. You should also check out his book, Bullspotting.

    This was not a paid endorsement, but I’m open to offers!

    Plus he got flat-out PolitiFact TRUE for his refutation of twofer nonsense when it appeared in a bill in Georgia.

    Politically he’s a conservative libertarian, and not an Obama supporter. I have it on good authority from [mumble].

    There are many excellent folks at The Fogbow in addition to the ones you mentioned, including a number of attorneys. So who among the birthers would you consider the greatest intellect?

    I can recall years ago being a lurker on what I think was Phil Berg’s blog.
    There was this gal named Linda who acted like she owned the place and knew everything possible in regards to Obama.
    Then there was this guy named Frank Arduini who’d come along and completely decimate whatever Linda was selling at the time.
    Frank’s posts are what drew me so deeply into the world of birtherism for the next several years.

    I think you are talking about Linda Starr at ObamaCrimes. From what I understand her banning Obots who made her look stupid was probably the reason that the Politijab Forum was started. There was some kind of meltdown at the time of the Inauguration. I never joined ObamaCrimes but found PJ from a link someone posted at RSoL about a month after it was up and running.

    Well,

    That’s a seriously asinine statement Julie.

    At no stage EVER has a single Obot or a member of the presidents legal team mentioned the BC was a PDF.

    At no time has the Hawaii HDoH ever mentioned releasing ANY birth certificate as a PDF.

    The HDoH HAS confirmed in writing in a verification to at least 3 SoS that the CONTENT of the image is whole and accurate.

    No sh–, Sherlock. Everyone knows that the pdf file was made by someone in the White House.

    However, the State of Hawaii has verified that the information in the pdf file matches the information on the original document which the State has on file. Mike Zullo knows that, but he prefers to mislead gullible birthers with his remarks.

    Here’s what Mike Zullo really said: “Now this V8 Conestoga was driven by a little old lady, only on Sundays. She’s a steal at eight thousand dollars.”

    Speaking of Zullo… have you noticed when he is pumping, er recounting his resume he always jumps from the 90’s when he was a cop and PI in New Jersey to his current volunteer position as lead of the CCP. He never says what he actually does to make a living or has been doing for the last 15 or more years.

    Also, is “mumble” one of Carl Gallups VIP’s?

    It is my recollection that his father owned a couple of car dealerships in the Phoenix area and that Mike tried his hand at a couple of auto related businesses until his father died and he inherited money and, I believe, the family house in north Scottsdale.

    Since then he has been taking it easy.

    Question for you (or anyone else who knows): can members of the CCP arrest someone, or do they have to call in a real cop? More generally, what law enforcement powers are actually given to CCP members?

    Posse members have citizen’s arrest powers, like anyone else, but no police powers of any kind. They are not certified as peace officers by AZPOST.

    While I appreciate the compliment, and I readily acknowledge that I’m just generally not-very-good at keeping up email correspondence (especially with people I don’t know), I checked my inboxes, and I can’t seem to find any emails I ever got from you. Which is probably why I didn’t reply.
