Birther apocalypse

In less than 24 hours it will be the month of March, when Mike Zullo and Carl Gallups will strap on their swords, Obot Cleaver and Fogbow Basher, hitch up their boots, and come for the Obots. Leading their birther army, they will slash and burn everything that crosses their path, and no supporter of Obama shall escape retribution as birthers shatter the universe in their righteous fury.

Any day now

“Any day now” has not been my favorite phrase, but I have warmed up to it of late. It is becoming more and more appropriate as birthers shift from arguments against Obama to promises of punishment or all that do not agree with their conspiracy theories. Yesterday I read at Birther Report:

Come on march. 3 more days, come on sheriff Joe, Mike Zullo, and CCP release the findings. Come on America Snap out of the trance, strap up your boots and get outside and kick some Obot . Stop letting Obama loving democrats trendy’s walk all over you, um up, look me up on face book, Im in VA, and I dont give a about a morally bankrupt society of zombies threatening me or mine, because I walk the walk, There only one man in that mob destined to take you out and you are destined to take him out , You go through the mob to meet him and cut down all others like blades of grass until you cross and the take meet your fate, Im sure you men and women could take out at least 20 obots apiece.. 1

There’s not much I can say that I haven’t already said many times. This article is just a place for discussion of Zullo’s March surprise (or lack thereof). I’ll be surprised if anything happens but an appearance on the Gallups radio show to hype what’s coming some other month. Mid month, I’ll put up another article, The Ides of March or something and April will probably see an article about the destruction of the Obots (April Fool) and that will be the end of it.

Here’s a count-down timer for the end of March:

March is over. We’re still here.

If the universe is going to shatter, what better vantage point to watch than the International Space Station.

    I just listened to (too much of) Mike Volin’s Blogtalk radio show. The Birthers are leaving the planet of sane reasoning.

    They really seem to think that the big March announcement will bring about a cataclysmic response. They think Zulo has proof of….of…..of……something?

    And whatever it is, it will prove to everyone that Obama is ineligible, then he will declare marshall law, he will never give up power, and crazy on and on and on!

    Benji Franklin: And whatever it is, it will prove to everyone that Obama is ineligible, then he will declare marshall law, he will never give up power, and crazy on and on and on!

    This would actually be a fun movie to watch: sort of Bizarro Red Dawn: after the Obamapocalypse, armies of Kenyans and Mexicans would drag the birthers and freepers out of their basements and into the nearest FEMA camp.

    We would find out that Apuzzo was really a mole infiltrated in the birthers camp and Orly would try to commit suicide by setting herself on fire with saline solution instead of nail polish, and fail.

    I’d pay to see that movie.

    Towards the end of the show in the chat room either Mike or one of the cohosts said that Zullo told them two weeks ago the big news would be in six weeks. According to my math that makes the big day April 1, April Fools Day. Is Zullo taking a page from Ed Hale’s play book? :lol:

    Benji Franklin,

    “I just listened to (too much of) Mike Volin’s Blogtalk radio show. The Birthers are leaving the planet of sane reasoning.”

    I could only hold on for 17 minutes. At the very beginning of the interviews with the Surprise Tea Party leaders, Volin was cut off from the interview due to some technical difficulties. This of course, according to the Surprise Tea Party people who were still on the line, was credited to the government monitoring the interview and shutting it down. These people are really sick.

    What is happening is the build up for the release of more Zullo poppycock. It’s the final (let’s hope) full court press into oblivion.

    Volin has gotten more vile as we get closer to march. You should have heard it on Wednesday when Volin also had problems with Skype they started shouting about it being DARPA and the obots shutting them down. There was a part that annoyed me though was when Volin brought up in Obama’s book on “page 26″. Obama talking about finding an old birth certificate amongst vaccination records and Volin said “I didn’t know they were giving vaccination shots for rabies”. I think the funniest thing I heard was Gabe Zolna talking about other people being insane.

    I am prepared for the usual Carl Gallups cover story…

    “This is a criminal investigation, folks. Big things are happening and they don’t follow a time schedule or meet deadlines. Zullo and Sheriff Arpaio are working tirelessly to complete this investigation and when something new comes up, they want to investigate it thoroughly before they make it public. Trust me when I say that you will be stunned at the new information coming out of this criminal investigation. The forensic analysis that has proven that the birth certificate is a forgery, the current revelations being made by a former British Intelligence advisor, and the Reed Hayes report are all just the tip of the iceberg, people. You can’t imagine how deep this goes. Lives are on the line, ladies and gentlemen. I can only ask that you be patient. There is a light at the end of this tunnel. We are approaching the end of our nations nightmare, and when Zullo and Sheriff Arpaio release this information, there will be a lot of people who are going to face judgement.”

    Dr. Conspiracy February 28, 2014 at 4:09 pm #

    Ms. Conspiracy corrects me about this all the time. From Bartelby.com:

    According to the standard rule, when the pronoun there precedes a verb such as be, seem, or appear, the verb agrees in number with the following grammatical subject: There is a great Italian deli across the street. There are fabulous wildflowers in the hills. There seems to be a blueberry pie cooking in the kitchen. There seem to be a few trees between the green and me. But people often disregard this rule and use a singular verb with a plural subject, especially when speaking or when using the contraction there’s. The Usage Panel dislikes this construction, however. Seventy-nine percent reject the sentence There’s only three things you need to know about this book. But when there’s is followed by a compound subject whose first element is singular, the panel feels differently. Fifty-six percent of the Usage Panel accepts the sentence In each of us there’s a dreamer and a realist, and 32 percent more accept it in informal usage. The panel is even more accepting of the sentence When you get to the stop light, there’s a gas station on the left and a grocery store on the right; 58 percent accept it in formal usage, while 37 percent more accept it in informal usage. Although this usage would seem to violate the rules of subject and verb agreement, the attraction of the verb to the singular noun phrase following it is so strong that it is hard to avoid the construction entirely.

    The subject of the sentence in my mind is not “days” (plural) but a the rule expressed by the noun phrase “31 days in March.”

    Consider this dialog:

    RC: I believe there are 31 days in March.

    DOC: “31 days in March” is correct.

    That’s how I look at it.

    Reality Check: BTW Hermie, your grammar is not correct. Your sentence should have been written “There are only 31 days in March.” Doofus.

    Zullo’s there, too, but he’s wearing a leisure suit and awkwardly clapping his hands.

    Come on march. 3 more days, come on sheriff Joe, Mike Zullo, and CCP release the findings. Come on America Snap out of the trance, strap up your boots and get outside and kick some Obot . Stop letting Obama loving democrats trendy’s walk all over you, um up, look me up on face book, Im in VA, and I dont give a about a morally bankrupt society of zombies threatening me or mine, because I walk the walk, There only one man in that mob destined to take you out and you are destined to take him out , You go through the mob to meet him and cut down all others like blades of grass until you cross and the take meet your fate, Im sure you men and women could take out at least 20 obots apiece..

The toothpaste started to come out of the tube onto the brush. Then BAM! Nothing happened, but I felt an evil presence. Then I thought, was there a tiny bubble in the toothpaste, where none should be? Was this where Obama was striking?

    I continued squeezing and then stopped when the brush was loaded. I looked very closely. No bubble. Where a bubble maybe SHOULD HAVE BEEN! Obama and his thugs again! Coincidence? No way! So I threw the brush away. They never let up people! Keep up your guard. Pass this on. Get the news out! Obot wreckless disregard for life! What if a child had bought that toothpaste?

    Dr. Conspiracy: Consider this dialog:
    RC: I believe there are 31 days in March.
    DOC: “31 days in March” is correct.
    That’s how I look at it.

    I’m a sucker for discussions about grammar.

    Sometimes it helps to think about the implied words that aren’t in a sentence. I do this to help myself with subject-verb agreement of collective nouns:

    The (members of) the audience are taking their seats.

    as opposed to

    The audience is large. “Members of” would change the meaning considerably.

    Doc, the fact you put quotation marks around “31 days in March” emphasizes that the subject of the sentence is the phrase itself, rather than the plural word “days.”

    “(The phrase) ’31 days in March’ is correct”

    correctly has the singular verb. But for

    “There are/is 31 days in March”

    The verb must agree with the plural word “days.” Therefore, the verb “are” must be correct.

    I’d also suggest that the examples you cited contain implied words:

    “There is a gas station on the left, and (there is) a grocery store on the right.”

    This usage is helpful in emphasizing that the grocery store and the gas station are in different locations. If they were both on the same side of the street, wouldn’t it be correct to say, “to the left are a gas station and a grocery store”? Because you wouldn’t say “a gas station and a grocery store *is* to the left,” would you?

    But then again, I’m hardly an expert, though I am fascinated by the subject. I recently realized I need to cut way back on my use (abuse?) of semicolons when I saw this quote from Kurt Vonnegut:

    “Here is a lesson in creative writing. First rule: Do not use semicolons. They are transvestite hermaphrodites representing absolutely nothing. All they do is show you’ve been to college.”

    Bottom line: Hermitian is still a doofus.

    Dr. CON has started a March countdown clock on us because they the FlogBlowers and Obama-CONs fully expect that nothing is going to happen. That Arpaio and Zullo have nothing but zilch.

    A false premise: if nothing happens in March, Arpaio is lying and has no case. OBots are truly fools who see no Obama evil.

    A false premise: release it now and today!! …Or what – Arpaio has no case? LoL.

    Relax guys. If Arpaio and Zullo got what they say they have, there is no reason to fret. Are they trustworthy? That would be a yes. The release will happen when it is ripe to do it.

    Absolutely not: in order to determine whether that’s the case, you’d have to reveal what time zone you’re in. And that’s all that Zullo and his team of crack investigators (selection of which of the multiple cheap jokes implied by that particular phrase to insert is left as an exercise for the reader) need to hunt you down and … um … something-or-other.

    I say Hawaii-Aleutian Time … can’t give him all the time in the world, but we can at least give him all the time in the United States! :P

    Ya can’t ride without a horse, and spurs that jingle jangle don’t work without a horse. And Corsi says it’s a “dead horse.” Time to hang up them thar posse and birther spurs, pardner and we’ll have a rootin tootin good ol’ time.

    Crustacean: I’d also suggest that the examples you cited contain implied words:

    “There is a gas station on the left, and (there is) a grocery store on the right.”

    I was going to make the same point.

    Also consider the sentence “There (are/is) 4 bases in Baseball”.

    I think most people would grant that ‘are’ is correct, yet it is exactly analogous to “There (are/is) 31 days in March”.

    (and yes I know there are only 3 bases and 1 home plate in baseball – y’all know what I mean)

    In which case, he’s also “Wrong!” having overlooked the quote being of someone else 2 weeks ago noting it was ~6 weeks hence. Years of experience biases me toward assuming Herms is wrong until proven otherwise. Confirmation bias again confirmed. This is not helping! ;)

    Herms, Herms, Hermione, it’s ever been shout “Wrong!” first and cogitate later with you. You’re always in such a hurry to carp “Wrong!” that you’re reliably blowing your toes off before the barrel of your would-be wit clears the holster! Doc charitably tried to suggest you were referring to something else, and you repay him by childishly whining that he is somehow responsible for your running at the mouth. Take responsibility for yourself, you’ll be all the more respectable for it.

    Hermitian: Of course what Arpaio has now proved is that the means and the ends are both illegal.

    What means? What ends? Arpaio has been ever careful to avoid making any specific allegation, much less try to prove any allegation. He played your crowd to boost his campaign and to try to distract media attention from himself. Which served only to draw more attention to his own ridiculous nature, than to birfer claims. And the birfers, dependent and abused in nature, cling to him yet. “Treat’em like dirt, they’ll stick like mud!”

    Well, it’s the first day of the new Birfer Cripesmas. Bright and early. I do look forward to the increasing agitation of the Faithful as the days fly by!

    Arpaio has continually said that he wants to clear the president. Now we read at BR an article from the P&E that “It is generally understood by most Americans that a “natural born Citizen” is one born in the United States…… Zullo and Gallups have previously stated that the question regarding Obama is whether or not he is even a U.S. citizen at all.”

    Doesn’t the Hawaii Verification of Birth issued to the state of Arizona officially answer Arpaio’s and Zullo’s concern about Obama’s citizenship? Didn’t the Verification of Birth clear the president?

    Do these people have any idea what they’re doing?

    Attempting to project the unfolding of increasing birfer denial as March runs its course …. mmmm …. ohhhmmm … arrrrgh … *pant, pant* … aaaaaAAAAGH–ah, it’s so clear, now!

    March 2014 will never end!

    It’s All March ’til Frog March.

    In a stunning display of solidarity and crowdsourced madness, the birfer community will, w/o even giving it a conscious thought, simply agree that’s it’s still March, until Zullo shatters the universe and Obama is out of office, one way or another.

    The day after Monday, March 31st, will be Tuesday, March 32nd, followed by Wednesday, March 33rd, then the 34th, the 35th, the 36th …

    Of course, all Zullo promised was some kind of announcement in March, he didn’t promise results (did he?), but that’s not how the Faithful fantasize.

    The only thing more painful for them to acknowledge than a march with no results … is the advent of the next day … the perennial day of peak psychic trauma for birfers …

    April 1.

    To move the discussion along:

    you: [everybody knows] [every expert] [it's obvious that] Obama’s birth certificate is a forgery.
    me: It may be obvious to you, but it is certainly not obvious to me, I’ve looked at all of those arguments, and they don’t hold water, and the so-called experts demonstrate that they don’t know what they are talking about.

    The fact is that the Hawaii department of health has verified all of the information on Obama’s birth certificate, and original sealed verifications reside with the secretaries of state of Kansas and Arizona, and with a federal court in Mississippi. That is not propaganda.

    There is no phony birth certificate other than one or two presented by birthers. We have shown how the accusations of fraud because of artifacts found in the PDF resulted from a simple workflow involving a Xerox copier.

    Operation American Spring shifts to Assassination Mode

    The stench of fail is pretty thick over at Col. Riley’s headquarters, since anyone who can count can see that the total participation so far is less than the number they would be needing to enroll every few seconds, if there is any chance of them reaching even the lower end of their goals.

    So the remaining few inmates are turning ever increasingly to violent and unlawful intentions. True to form, Riley himself repeats that this is to be a non-violent movement, and then instantly gives an escape clause by saying he can’t prevent anybody from bringing weapons.

    This thread is in the common pattern of suggesting something violent and unlawful while back pedaling before letting the minions run with it.

    http://patriotsforamerica.ning.com/forum/topics/can-obama-be-impeached-1?xg_source=activity&id=2734278%3ATopic%3A685796&page=4#comments

    It starts off with seed corn from J.B. Williams:

    “We can only charge an occupant of the Oval Office with crimes after they have been removed from office. There are only three ways to remove an individual from the Oval Office…
    1.The Election Booth (FAILED)
    2.The John Wilkes Booth method (NOT RECOMMENDED)
    3.Impeachment (ON THE TABLE)”

    And the comments take the hint from option 2:

    “Reply by JW IN THE DESERT yesterday

    The only way we will get rid of this SOB is thru a scope. Take that for what its worth.”

    “Reply by Hillside 8 hours ago

    SOUNDS LIKE A SHOOTING GALLERY TO ME!!”

    “Reply by Patricia L Hinds 16 hours ago

    I agree and have wonder why there hasn’t been more attempt to take him out.”

    Bear in mind, this is a very low traffic blog, with only a couple of dozen participants on a given day. And it is heavily moderated, both by Col Riley, and a couple of assistants. (The moderators are a significant percentage of the posters.)

    So it is impossible to believe these remarks and plans are “just slipping past” the oversight of the treasonous ex-Colonel.
