CBL Project

I’m working on a combined birther list (CBL) project. The goal is to provide a list of all public birthers. It’s intended as a historical reference and Who’s Who. Also an index to the site.

The page, titled “Birthers from A to Z,” appears under the site’s Features menu.

Interestingly, while researching for this project, I came across the Encyclopedia of American Loons. It shares some entries with my list.

    I hope it’s okay to add (off the top of my head):

    Chief Editor Sammy Korir (Michelle Obama’s suspected “whitey” tape).

    “Race Bannon” (Freeper/birther, who claims he met a young Obama in Hawaii, and says young Obama said that he was born in Mombasa).

    Matt Romney, who made a pandering birther comment or two during his father’s run for president.

    In fact, I’d add every pandering birther politician I could find, for two reasons:

    1). They help complete the cast list, and since any credibility they possess as candidates carries through in their comments and helps fuel birthers, they deserve to be there.

    2). To leave a permanent record of the political climate surrounding the birther movement.

    I am sure this is meant as a reference, and, hey, it might even prove useful for birthers. But, they’ll decry it as an “enemies’ list” any second now.

    What’s the criteria for inclusion? Simply any level of active birthering, online or off? Obviously bonus points to any and all who have taken part in court actions, authored manifestos, or birf’d while in public office. Do you have a set standard in mind?

    The first criterion is to include anyone who brought an eligibility lawsuit.
    The second category is to include any attorney who actively promoted birtherism.
    The third would be anyone who is a birther and a news maker.
    The fourth is anyone who runs a birther blog and/or publishes birther content.
    The fifth is anyone who has published a report or given testimony that Barack Obama is not eligible to be President.
    The sixth is anyone I think needs including.

    What I am not really interested is some politician who has given a wish-washy response to a birther question from a constituent, or someone who said something birtherish and walked it back.

    Dr. Conspiracy December 2, 2013 at 3:39 pm #

    Well, that’s a problem, and I don’t have a ready solution for it. As much as anything I am doing this to give myself a realistic idea of the size of the group of birthers who believe it enough to go public.

    All I can say is that the very fact that I’m asking for assistance with the list is evidence of the fact that it didn’t exist before, and I think a real enemies list wouldn’t be public.

    on another note, i was going through birfer posts on my blog and found this feb 2011 boast from butterdezillion on a freeper thread re joe farah’s “why eligibility is a winning issue”. it seemed fitting …

    … i wear the “birther” title proudly, just as i wear the “vexatious requester” title proudly.

    someday i’m gonna sing, “i was ‘birther’ when ‘birther’ wasn’t cool.” lol

    they’ve thrown all the rotten tomatoes that they have at us and we’ve come out of it unscathed. what are they gonna do now – bleed on us? wave their privates at our aunties? taunt us a second time? lol.

    we are the little bunnies they ridicule but in the end they will be the ones soiling their armor. lol. the only question is whether they, in their figurative death throes, will bother to write out, “aaaaaaaaaaagggggggggghhhhhhh” (with a gutteral sound, in the back of the throat). lol

    Yeah, Kerchner’s blog has got something about that. Of course, the ol’ sea dog just has to make an Alinsky reference, too. Then he also goes off about liars, but his prose is rather convoluted. I can see why he went into the Navy and not into English:

    “Of course if you read their training material such as Saul Alinsky’s ‘Rules for Radicals’ and another book which outlines their communist ideologue campaign tactics, ‘You Can Trust Communists to Be a Communists’, you get a better understanding of their ‘ends justifies the means – any lie or devious dirty trick goes to achieve their goals’ mentality and tactics. And lying and deceiving is training rule #1. It is also interesting how Obama and team have allied themselves with the atheist Communist Party taught to lie liars and the Radical Islamist taught to lie liars who are both taught and trained to outright lie as much as necessary to further their objectives.”

    Mr. Hollander even submitted a birth certificate for Senator McCain showing that he had been born in Colon, Panama and not in the Canal Zone at Coco Solo Naval Air Station.
    In irony of ironies, McCain’s attorneys and the attorneys for the Republican National Committee got Hollander’s lawsuit dismissed on grounds of lack of standing!

Do you not agree his birth certificate is fake? It does not matter if Barack Hussein Obama was born in Kenya, Hawaii or even at the foot of the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia. The fact that his father was a Kenyan/Marxist/Muslim disqualifies him from holding the office of president.”

    Congressman Coffman Said President Obama is “Not an American.”

    According to 9News, “Coffman had steadfastly refused to speak on camera regarding his May 12th comment at a fundraiser in Elbert County. The comments, recorded and posted online by a Coffman supporter, were first aired by 9NEWS. ‘I don’t know whether Barack Obama was born in the United States of America. I don’t know that,’ Coffman told donors. ‘But I do know this, that in his heart, he’s not an American. He’s just not an American.’ [9News, 5/22/12; Denver Post, 5/16/12]

I researched a year or so ago and found someone who posted as “ORYR” on Patriot’s Action Network was Bob Nelson of [Redacted] Doc. That was before ORYR/BR was started. Orly has published emails from a Bob Nelson and claimed he is the owner of the blog. If Doc thinks this breaks the rules then I take no offense if he redacts the name. Taitz has published his name at least a couple of times.

    It’s an important question. Very early in this site’s history I wrote an article on it:

    The main point of that article is that one cannot understand birther behavior outside the context of the sub-culture of birther web sites and forums.

    Since then I have written many articles on birther psychology and understanding the birthers (which are inexpert and speculative):

    Dr. Conspiracy December 6, 2013 at 1:19 pm #

    Based on polling results alone, there were millions of people who “unbirthed” when the President released his long form in 2011.

    As for the list, those are people who are invested in the belief and people who are invested don’t readily change their minds.

    I know of about three birthers who had commented on this site that changed their minds.

    I have never heard of an “Obot” going over to the birther side. Generally Obots are well-informed, and well-informed people don’t become birthers.

    A problem with assessing conversions is that you can never know if someone is telling the truth about a change of opinion. Conversion stories can be made up to give credibility to the narrative.

    Foggy has the opinion that it’s somebody else. There is also a claim that this person called Taitz to deny that he runs ORYR.

    Some searching reveals that this identification by Orly Taitz appears several times in comments on this site already. Since it’s speculation rather than identification, I’ll let it slide.

    In researching this question, I came across a new birther for the list, a prolific blogger who runs a blog called “Storm’n Norm’n“, Norman Hooben.

    When it is fear and ignorance that drives one to become a birther, it is hard to change course. However, there are many people sitting on the fence and providing them with the facts may sway them.

    My very first critique of birther nuttery, when I first fell into the rabbit hole in mid-2011, was that if birther arguments had any merit—hell, if they were even arguments worthy of the term—then there would be Obama supporters who were reluctantly convinced.

    Honest, rational, principled people often and continually have to acknowledge inconvenient realities. Without a capacity to do so, simply getting through the day would be a challenge.

    Amazed and simply bewildered.

    Allow me the brief moment of perception here. The [Doc] has expressively written articles whereby his distaste for exposure of private citizens and their families – regardless of their political view, should be off limits as this typically presents unwarranted threats, and in some cases life threatening (been there done that one). However, the [Doc] advocates and spends time compiling a list to expose the private information of every person (birther) and their families on an open blog? What part of hypocrisy do you not see here?
