Mike Volin

I was piqued by a comment I saw at Obama Release Your Records by commenter Birther1 (Mike Volin). The context was a discussion about Carl Gallups hanging up on Foggy when Foggy called the Freedom Friday radio show last week. Here’s what he said:

Birther1: Froggy can always post his comments here or at my blog or call into my show.

By “my blog” he meant his site: Where’s Obama’s Birth Certificate? and the same-named Blog Talk Radio program. It might surprise my readers, given the amount of attention that I give Mike Zullo on my blog, that I don’t really follow him personally and his various Internet radio appearances. All I knew about Mike Volin was the occasional mention of his name on the Reality Check program when they talked about Zullo being on Volin’s show. Apparently Volin and Zullo have significant contact.

We’ve been talking about censorship at birther blogs, and here we have a birther web site and radio program inviting Foggy to participate. That’s noteworthy, and I hope genuine. Foggy reports that he was able to post a couple of comments on Volin’s blog. I dropped Mike a note, offering to be a guest on his radio show. We’ll see where that goes.

Another topic of late is the Sharon Rondeau attack on the Obots. I see the Volin had an interview with her on this subject 3 weeks ago. I haven’t listened to it yet.

    Mike Volin is the guy who gives out the sheriff kits and also drops off them off at Congress members offices. Sometimes to the Congressman themselves, other times to members of their staff. The kit is basically the press conferences held by the CCP.

    During the recent Freedom Friday interview Zullo said that in the last couple of days one of the Congressman visited by Volin had asked to meet with Zullo for about an hour.

    From Volin’s website, he admits to meeting with Rep. Barletta and Rep. Dent. And that Dent was very interested in the Selective Service stuff. Barletta was one of three Congressmen (Stockman, Yoho, being the other two) who birthers thought would past some type of birth certificate fraud bill.

    BTW, Barletta is one of the Republican Congressman that the Democrats think they can defeat in 2014. So he may be looking to Zullo as a last grasp to keep his seat.

    Mike is disingenuous. Foggy emailed Mike Vollin a few weeks ago about coming onto his show and being interviewed. After Vollin asked around most likely to Gallups and Zullo he told Foggy he wouldn’t let him on the show because foggy was a person of interest or some other nonsense and it would be a conflict of interest to have him on or something.

    We’ll see. He called, but I was away from the phone.

    Sheriff kit? Is that anything like that silly “Fill in the blanks” DIY eligibility lawsuit form that birthers were promoting for a while?

    Its basically a bunch of birther claims packaged to spam other people with this includes the affidavit from Zullo which contains zero personal knowledge and recycles birther claims. It’s about 50+ pages of BS to spam people with.

    A Sheriff’s Kit? More likely a “Zullo Skit” for the uninformed. That happens just about every week with the Reverend Carl Gallups. ;-)

    Don’t waste time with Volin. Call Zullo and ask if he will let Volin have you on his show. It will save Volin and you both a phone call.

    You’re really quite confused about the whole concept of “rights” aren’t you…

    And come to think of it… what fight? There is no fight. Birthers have never won and will never win because their premise is wrong on it’s face. The closest thing to a fight we have is some birthers tilting at windmills, and some anti-birthers in the bleachers egging them on for the sheer entertainment value.

    It must be killing you inside to have an unknown enemy. Can’t attack what you don’t know, and that is driving you crazy.

    Sitting around and mocking those who run around in circles, slam into walls and completely fail at everything is not a fight, it is entertainment. It is sort of like the Jerry Springer Show, minus the socially redeeming values and folding chairs.

    When is Zullo going to tell us what Arizona crime was committed? What charges does he want to bring, and under what statute? That shouldn’t be too difficult for a real law enforcement officer to answer.

    The birthers don’t understand the difference between an expert opinion, which has value only if the person giving it has relevant expertise, and a scientific argument which stands or fails on its merits, not its author.

    A common problem with a certain part of our population. Science education is just not one of our strongest asset.

    Au Contraire, the birthers have proven that they don’t know a helluva lot about anything they’ve opened their mouths on, and still attack that mountain of unknowns like rabid chihauhaus chasing 22-wheelers. I think the crazy is a prerequisite.

    Don’t play Michael Jordan one-on-one until he has shown you his nekkid pix, but keep claiming you’d destroy him 21-0 any time.

    Yup, that’s the birther position.

    Did Volin forget to notice that there is no attorney Sibley, but only a disbarred former attorney Sibley?
