Birther police chief out: finds entertainment career

Gilberton Pennsylvania police Chief Mark Kessler is officially out of a job, reports the Penn Live news site. He became somewhat of a celebrity among more extreme pro-gun activists for making YouTube videos of himself firing automatic weapons at targets labeled with the names of government officials. Penn Live further reported:

He has signed a contract with a national production company to appear in a reality show, but he said he could not provide details about his role.

Kessler was behind the failed March 9 “Taking Back Washington” rally and also is the founder of a militia movement.

His birther creds come from a recording made after Mike Zullo’s closed-door presentation at the Constitutional Sheriff and Peace Officers Association meeting. Birther Report has links to Kessler’s recordings, including:

This Barry…he’s not an American, I can tell you that right now. The information that I was given, he’s not an American. He’s not even Kenyan and I’m tellin’ you that when you find out what he is, your blood is gonna boil. The American people are gonna go absolutely crazy if Congress doesn’t do something about this cause he’s not Kenyan and he’s not American. …There’s no record of him prior to the age of five anywhere in this country. Nowhere. The people that…that they say are his parents, guess what? They’re not his real parents. They’re not. I’ve seen the evidence. I’ve seen the evidence and I give kudos to Mike Zullo and Joe Arpaio because Joe took this bull by the horns and ran with it. [text from the Free Republic forum]

No record, except newspaper announcements of his birth, a birth certificate, and contemporary references in State Department documents.

Later Kessler dropped support for Zullo.

    It is of no concern.

    A shame that atrocious behavior is rewarded with a ‘Reaity Show’.

    They had to make the settlement public and it’s nothing to write home about.

    The gross appears to be about a year’s salary. My guess is his lawyer will get a big chunk of it.

    As far as his “contract with a national production company to appear in a reality show” is concerned my guess is that, at best, it is a development deal with holes in it big enough to drive a Crown Vic police car through.

    Don’t program your DVR yet. As I said, at best he probably has a development deal.

    Unless they hook him up with Ted Nugent or Duck Dynasty I can’t imagine him carrying a show by himself.

    Not his real parents? Inconceivable!! (and yes, that word does mean what I think it means).

    All you have to do is go to the Wikipedia page for Ann Dunham. There’s a photo of her from 1960. Look at that photo and tell me with a straight face that she doesn’t look a thing like Barack. You don’t need no stinking DNA evidence. It’s obvious from looking at her that she is his mother.

    (Note to Martha Trowbridge: take your Elizabeth Dukes garbage and shove it!)

    Carl, I’m sorry to break this to you, but you think way too much like me. My first thought when I read that line about the reality show was, he should get The Nuge hired on as his sidekick. They’d probably accidentally shoot each other. Heck, even I’d tune in for that.

    He’s not even Kenyan…

    NOOOOOOOOoooooooo! I only voted for him because I thought he was Kenyan!

    …and I’m tellin’ you that when you find out what he is, your blood is gonna boil.

    I think that’s a hint — Obama was born in the vacuum of space!

    Seriously, what’s the happy horsepoop here? Is he really tipping off what Zullo is pushing in private, and if so, what? I’ve got my fingers crossed for “lizard people,” but I know it’s probably a long shot. I’ve steeled myself for disappointment.

    There’s a simple test. Can he run a marathon in under three hours? If so, he’s Kenyan.

    Whats the show called? “Shootin’ with Crybabies?”
    He balled like a little bitch about how unfair this all was, how his family was suffering because of what THEY did to HIM.
    No, it was what HE did to HIMSELF!

    kessler’s opinion of zullo evolved pretty quickly:

    “I think Mike Zullo is a piece of garbage. He is a lying sack of **** and excuse my French, but when you bring law enforcement from all over the country into a room and pretend to be a law enforcement officer and host a alleged top secret meeting, it’s a slap in the face to every cop on the planet. Every law enforce, especially those officers because they were considered, or are considered constitutional peace officers. … “

    “… Mike Zullo could not arrest anyone. He has no powers of arrest. He is not a sworn anything. So I put a challenge out to this lady, and to Mike Zullo, because I guess she was going to interview him after my interview, and I let her record it and all, and I gave it to him left and right.

    First I started out with, if Mike Zullo comes to Pennsylvania, my jurisdiction, and whips out his badge and his credential, I am going to lock his ass up for impersonating a police officer. In a heartbeat. That mother, he, I will take him to county under Pennsylvania statutes. I’m not playing games. I will lock his ass up.”

    aarrgghh: kessler’s opinion of zullo evolved pretty quickly:

    Of course a lawman (esp a redneck lawman) would be offended by a pretend lawman.

    … but since he isn’t a lawman anymore …. !

    That wouldn’t make my blood boil but run cold. I’m all in for “he’s the son of Lenin and had his skin darkened”. Y’know, like a reverse Michael Jackson. ;)

    This “development deal” is probably him signing with Bettina Viviano “film producer extrordinaire”. Run, Discovery Channel! Run away as fast as you can.
