    The Twitter feed in the sidebar brings us news that the ” BREAKING: OBAMA COLLEGE RECORDS RELEASED” spam has risen from the dead again (Fess up: which one of you clowns stole the wooden stake for a campfire?), and the birfoons have forgotten it was debunked almost 5 years ago.

    Although I’m not a fan of Adam Sandler, we need to get him to make a new movie about the problems of dealing with birfers, called “50 First Debates”.

    Birther I’m not a racist moment on twitter. I was talking about some birther memes and a few birthers start shifting to Obama’s policies. One guy gets mad saying “Get a rope”. I’m like “Get a rope?” He then replies with “yes get a rope, It’s a southern thing”. I reply with: “You do know lynching has racial connotations”. I then get accused of playing the race card.

    Dr Kenneth Noisewater: Birther I’m not a racist moment on twitter.

    The other day I had a (possibly non-birther) guy on Breitbart who bemoaned how racist it is that he isn’t allowed to use the N-word on black people. A birther being racist (while claiming “I’m not racist”) is a “dog bites man” story. ;)

    I think he just tries to get another 15 minutes of fame, given that birthers seem to be generally fine with all the “I got sekrit everdintz, I’m soooo special” talk.

    In general, the “the real stuff is secret, but it will be the conspiracy’s undoing, I tell you!” is usually one of the last stages of a conspiracy theory. But then again I thought birtherism had already gone there with the 2010 (?) claims of how SCOTUS had already ruled Obama ineligible and was just waiting a couple of months for the right moment to release the verdict…

    I will laugh if that’s their big surprise. I swear that the CCP operates on some kind of delay. Most of their “new information” is at least 6 months old in birtherstan. I still run into birthers pushing the law license claim. I wouldn’t be surprised if this is the next turd the CCP drops or that Obama sealed his records by executive order.

    Two things I have noticed in ‘discussions’ with Obama opponents.

    a) The constant complaint that they are called racists because they oppose Obama or his policies- but in my observation they are usually only called racists when they make either racist statements or hold Obama to an exclusively Obama(i.e. black) President standard.

    b) And sadly, in the time it took me to type the above, I forgot what ‘b’ is….:)

    I disagree with that assessment: my sample size isn’t great,because I don’t visit ORYR as much since being banned, but I’m sure I see far more “about-to/already-did give up on Zullo for his inaction” postings than “I’m looking forward to March” ones. I’m even seeing some “Zullo has been intimidated/co-opted” ones.

    This is definitely the last hurrah for the Little Corporal: when people realize he’s handed them yet another bouquet of balloons filled with nonjudicable hot air, he’ll be lucky if none of them try to literally lynch him.

    Thanks for that link. I always thought that her death likely was heart-related. The stress of the crash and then floating in choppy waters had to be extremely stressful, and Keith Yamamoto said that he was trying to get her to calm down while they were in the water.

    Of course this isn’t likely to shut up the birthers who believe that everything is part of a conspiracy.

    Doc thanks for sharing some of the Birther idiocy with us- normally I don’t go to Birther websites, no more than I go walking through sewer tunnels but Elizabeth…..wow

    True, this impostor [Barack Obama] will not step down willingly, but if he is given the option of taking his arrest without force, and if he rebels, then he should be informed that it will be with force.

    What does this mean? It means that the high ranking officers, the Army Provost Marshall and/or the Sergeant in Arms, all confront and remove him in handcuffs. It means that he is read his rights, that he is informed that his criminal acts have been proven, that a court of law awaits him, and sentencing will be handed down accordingly.

    – Elizabeth

    And of course that is just one of her many posts all looking for one ‘honest’ general or whoever to go into the White House and arrest Obama because well Elizabeth is nuts and thinks Obama should be arrested for everything from being a Marxist who wants to impose Sharia law and because Obama goes on vacation.

    These people are insane or despicable and sometimes both.

    Well, I could name relatives in Hawaii …. but I don’t think they would appreciate it. Here’s some food for your birfers’ …. ummm … thought: The State Dept’s requirements as to what constitutes an “acceptable” BC for use in a passport application:

    Evidence of U.S. Citizenship
    You must submit one of the following original documents as primary evidence of U.S. citizenship (photocopies are not acceptable):

    Certified U.S. Birth Certificate (must meet all of the following requirements):
    • Issued by City, County, or State of birth
    • Lists bearer’s full name, date of birth, and place of birth
    • Lists parent(s) full names
    • Has date filed with registrar’s office (must be within one year of birth)
    • Has registrar’s signature
    • Has embossed, impressed, or multicolored seal of registrar
    http://travel.state.gov/content/passports/english/passports/apply.html

    Does Hawaii’s COLB pass? Easily.

    Ironically, if I were starting a passport app from scratch, the BC my parent’s rec’d when I was born (you know, the one the birfers would say is my “real” / “original” one) would not pass. (Not that I would want to send it to the State Dept anyway!) So, I would need to get a fresh certification, and, if I were living in HI, that would be a COLB.

    It’s amazing how birthers still believe the California (?) bar is the only entity that couldn’t be coerced into complying with the Almighty Usurper’s demands. Except that they could because they will not confirm that Obama’s license was “revoked”, let alone “for fraud”. One of the best examples for cognitive dissonance (here: believing in two mutually exclusive things within the same statement).

    Thanks for “just tell them to contact any passport office and ask “will you accept a 2007 HI certified COLB as proof of birth”. if they say they did and the answer was “no” ask them which office they contacted.”

    But I do think I should supply the evidence and not ask them to check.

    Ellen: But I do think I should supply the evidence and not ask them to check.

    The burden of proof is on the people claiming a COLB is not accepted as proof of birth. It’s also much easier to prove since you just need to ask a passport office – “Will that be enough?” – “No”. – instead of having to bring somebody who was accepted with all his paperwork to prove the birther wrong.

    Ellen: giving a little address information and other background to make the information real

    Huh? How would “a little address information” somehow “make the information real”, and how little is “little”? Your thought process is touching birther territory in convolution (Convolutedness? Convolutivity? My English is failing me today.)

    Hawaii isn’t the only state that issues short forms now. In fact Arizona also has switched to short forms and no longer issues long form birth certificates to anyone born after 1989. This mean anyone over the age of 18 right now wouldn’t be able to get a long form in Arizona. The state of NY also uses a short form that contains even less information on it than the short form in hawaii.

    (Corsi) Tea Partier: Hitler Escaped

    Corsi’s latest hypothesis, detailed in his new book Hunting Hitler, is that the German dictator didn’t actually kill himself alongside wife Eva Braun in his Berlin bunker as history books would have us believe. According to Corsi, Hitler actually escaped Germany as the Third Reich fell, and he did it with the help of none other than the U.S. government.

    it ends with: But if the facts have never hindered Corsi’s zeal, neither have they interfered with his success. His two most popular books, Unfit for Command and The Obama Nation, have been faulted for multiple inaccuracies. But both books were New York Times best sellers.

    How and where Hitler’s life ultimately ended is a question worth exploring, and it’s certainly an entertaining conspiracy theory. But for a reasonable—believable–explanation of Hitler’s alleged escape, Corsi is probably not the most reliable source.

    You can’t really tell with birthers, since they nearly all came to the party “pre-marginalized”…

    If your target audience lunatic-fringers (like birthers, neandercons or Communists), who think (and I use the word loosely) in stereotypes and bumper-stickers, name-calling can be very effective. Just ring the epithet bell, and their Pavlovian responses will take over.

    It’s not nearly so effective when addressing a thoughtful audience, but labelling an opponent a “frothing loon” can sometimes persuade thoughtful type to run a rabies test before trying to engage said loon in serious debate. More of a “time-saver” than a “weapon”.

    Note the astonishing way she still misinterprets the SSA’s previous reponses. The courts need to start insisting on a DNA test to prove she’s actually human before conceding that she has standing…

    Thinker: Looks like it’s off to SCOTUS for Doug Vogt. 9th Circuit killed his case a couple days ago.

    How many runs at SCOTUS will this make for Sibley? This is Vogt’s first attempt at the Supreme Round File (I think). So nice of Sibs to take his new friend to new places! Maybe Vogt will reciprocate by referring some of Sibley’s swill to the FBI!

    The SCOTUS docket shows 52 cases filed by Sibley, and I believe that he has lost all of them. A number of them were part of his longstanding harassment of his ex-wife, Barbara Sibley. He also represented D.C. Madam Deborah Jean Palfrey, but he lost that case as well, and Palfrey committed suicide rather than go to prison.

    donna: How and where Hitler’s life ultimately ended is a question worth exploring, and it’s certainly an entertaining conspiracy theory.

    At least it’s more intriguing than the question whether Elvis is still alive (or at least lived longer than 1977) or if Paul McCartney is dead.

    Professor Bruttenholm: “1958: the Occult Wars finally come to an end with the death of Adolf Hitler.”
    John Myers: “1945, you mean. Hitler died in ’45.”
    Professor Bruttenholm: [amused] “Did he now?”

    Doc, you obviously had second thoughts about something you reported about a ex-general and birther. Your choice. So I will only share this – what I found following the link you had provided – by “veteran investigative journalist Bob Powell”:

    /Quote
    PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TO BOBBY’S DEFENSE FUND!
    On Thursday, January 9th 2014, I was with my son Adam, his girlfriend, and their son – my grandson – Jaiden Daniel, when a situation arose that caused me to fear for my life and the lives of the three children who were with me. I reacted to the situation as I believe that any responsible person would and addressed that threat. As a result of my perfectly reasonable actions I was arrested by the Michigan State Patrol and charged with Simple Assault and Brandishing a Firearm; both misdemeanors. I was able to bail myself out about 4 hours later.

    I wish I could be more forthcoming about the circumstances of my arrest, and indeed I will as soon as the case has been adjudicated; but for now I hope that you will believe me when I say that I did what any reasonable person would do to ensure the safety of my children from an imminent threat.

    I have retained the services of an attorney, but before he enters his appearance on my behalf he wants a $2,000 retainer which must be paid this week so he can prepare for my arraignment on the 22nd of January. My bail and the cost of having my truck hauled from the scene and impounded wiped me out financially. So once again I turn to you, my TTiV family, for help.

    Please click the Paypal button to donate whatever you can afford, whatever you will not miss, to my defense fund. I would never ask anyone to put themselves out for me, but if you have a few dollars to spare they would most certainly be appreciated. If you do not have a credit card, or if you are wary of using the internet to conduct financial transactions, you can also send your donation to the address below.

    The European: when a situation arose that caused me to fear for my life and the lives of the three children who were with me.

    I noticed that, too. I was wondering whether the “situation” involved a 6-foot-tall invisible Communist rabbit named “Harvey Alinsky”. But I suppose they would’ve held him for psychiatric evaluation if that were the case.

    Interesting that he got charged with misdemeanors: even here in gun-crazy AZ, home of the unlicensed concealed carry law, if you introduce a gun into a confrontation where it’s not legally justified, it’s always a felony.

    Wow that is a whole lot of crazy- one excerpt of his writings- which include no less than mind control, satan worship and Washington’s monument being a phallus

    The purpose of the paper was to set forth a doctrine intended to control populations of varying sizes, from entire countries to unruly mobs, by instilling them with a never-ending and overwhelming sense of fear. And this was 34 years ago. Since then technology has advanced sufficiently so that ideas, suggestions, and even “voices” can be beamed into the head of a victim using microwaves and other types of radiation; true beam weapons that can instill in the victim and overwhelming sense of dread, confusion, and despair. Watch this video, sent to this reporter by Patriot News Network host Kathy Rubio, to learn more about “Mindwar.”

    In this episode of The Truth Is Viral, Publisher and Editor-in-Chief Bobby Powell speaks with talk show hosts Kathy Rubio and Zeeda Andrews (from the Patriots Ride for the Constitution) about information they have received from militia leaders that had planned to attend this event, patriots that are finding out too late that they have been lied to.

    Rubio and Andrews claim that information they have received from military sources as well as members of various militias indicates that Vallely’s march to reclaim the Republic is ultimately intended to be a sacrifice to Satan, the blood of patriots meant to stain his altar, the area between the Washington Monument and the Capitol rotunda. These monuments were built to represent the erect phallus of Osiris (aka Apollo, Appolyon, Antichrist,) and the ever pregnant belly of Isis by the Masonic architects that laid out the nation’s capital in accordance with the ancient Egyptian “Mystery Religion.”

    Would someone with access to Adobe Illustrator please take a look at the National Archives’ PDF of the Constitution at http://media.nara.gov/congress/00303.pdf (warning: 16Meg download) and tell me whether it contains “layers”? I can see from looking at the metadata that it contains multiple objects, but I’m not sure whether Illustrator will show them as “layers”.

    I’m wondering whether the March Surprise will be Corporal Zullo announcing that the entire United States government is “fraudulent”. Thus freeing the birthers to stage their planned “revolution” and/or secede into their own little (altered) States. ;-)

    I’ve had the advice to ignore the birthers before. Yes, they are merely a fringe group like “truthers” and landing-on-the-moon deniers and members of the Flat Earth Society, but when there is an opportunity to present the facts on birther sites, I think anti-birthers should take it. If we can crush even one of the ongoing sets of stupidities, we should.

Another of JPotter’s aphorism is that “bullsh*t breeds in a vacuum” … delusions like these, manifestations of denial and ideology, are too quickly swept under the rug, allowing the next to develop and fester, as if it was something new, there were no precedents, and there are no relevant cautionary tales.

    Some time ago I was going to claim that I could probably pass the California Bar Exam just from the knowledge that I picked up reading here. I decided against, and it now turns out for good reason.

    I visited the Judge Judy website today for a bit of amusement, and found she had some crossword puzzles to play with. I failed them miserably.

    But wait, is it possible that Judge Judy’s crossword puzzles are actually the California Bar Exam? That would explain everything!!! I’m sure I could have aced those puzzles had I used an open book, and I bet even Dr. Taitz Esq. (can’t forget the Esq.) could handle that.

    they seem to be doing their best to make light of the incident and make out that being on an aircraft which ditches in the sea after losing its engine power, getting out into colder water than the ambient teperature in a lifejacket, then bobbing around waiting to be rescued from waters where sharks are known to hunt is some kind of relaxing stroll in the park.

    they even claim that dr fuddy was filmed `smiling and laughing as she exited the plane…..funny, but i seem to have missed that bit.

    Fuddy’s arrhythmia most likely was ventricular fibrillation. Ventricular fibrillation is an erratic, disorganized firing of impulses from the ventricles. The ventricles quiver and are unable to contract or pump blood to the body. This is a medical emergency that must be treated with cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and defibrillation as soon as possible. It can be triggered by intense stress.

    It has nothing to due with blocking veins. Vuoto, who isn’t a doctor, is confusing Sudden Cardiac Death with a heart attack.

    CarlOrcas: It’s all over Birther Report and they’re just absolutely sure this is Zullo’s universe shattering information.

    Interesting since it has zero bearing on eligibility.
    Interesting because it doesn’t mean the BC was forged, or that Obama had any knowledge of that.
    Interesting because it would not end his presidency (given that the new alleged father is not the Communist boogeyman or black radical they tried to invent with their FMD/Malcolm X stories).
    Interesting because it shows for how little they are willing to settle now, especially in relation to “universe-shattering”.

    Prediction for a what-if world where this theory was correct: people would pause to wonder, then go on with their lives. Issa would hold hearings that come up empty. Birthers would be fuming the usurper is not removed. Zullo would claim he’s still got more stuff that will catch up on the universe shattering. Any day now…

    A couple thoughts from a former resident of Sandland:

    First, Arpaio will be 84 years old in 2016 and this trial balloon has been flown so many times it is getting a little raggedy.

    Second, getting elected statewide is a lot different than getting elected in Maricopa County.

    Third, his approval rating have been eroding precipitously in the last couple years. Here is the most recent data from the most reliable Arizona poll:

    http://www.brcpolls.com/13/RMP%202013-III-07.pdf

    Those numbers are for Maricopa County, his home county. I suspect they are even worse in Pima, the second most populous county after Maricopa.

    Also notice that most of his 2013 donations came from out of state. Arizonans know him too well to give him their hard earned money.

    Depends on the candidate and the opposition: Maricopa County still has 60% of the state’s population. If he hadn’t pissed away his overwhelming dominance there, he’d have an excellent shot just by adding the mostly-pro-Joe rural vote to that base.

    As things stand, though, he’d be a Palin-like gift to the Democrats: he’d obliterate any moderate oppostion in the rabidly-right GOP primary, improving the chances for a centrist similar to Napolitano.

    Majority Will: I figured it was just a little more rectal wind to keep a diehard bigot’s flimsy ego balloon aloft.

    And to keep the donations rolling into his campaign fund.

    It is my recollection that if he doesn’t run he can convert that money to his personal use. I my be wrong but I think I recall an Arizona politico doing that a few years ago.

    I put my money on him not running but continuing to accept donations right up to the last nanosecond.

    Well, the Super Bowl is next weekend, so they should be done with their handicapping and betting next week, and free to move on to less important matters. With luck, they’ll be able to get to it before they have to start working on their March Madness brackets…

    What I love about that news, is that it has birthers in full panic mode. Its fun watching them squirm.

    So apparently Subway is partnering with Michelle Obama to help promote children eating healthier. Naturally birthers and other RWNJs are swearing off Subway, as they hate the Obamas so much. That said I’m hoping that the Obamas release a statement lauding computer technology and the internet in general, as everyone with ODS will be sure to never go online, or near a computer ever again.
    And why stop there! The first lady should issue a statement celebrating living.
