So it’s almost the middle of March and nothing much from Zullo and the Zu-Bot Cold Case Posse. That leaves me in the difficult position of having nothing to write about. So just as the birthers have to live on promises, so do I.
Comments from Zullo in interviews with Carl Gallups, and recent remarks from Internet radio host and videographer Mark Gillar, suggest that they have completely abandoned the Birth Certificate / Selective Service registration themes that dominated the first year of their press releases and were shot to pieces by critics. It’s something else.
Birther Report has a new article up, “Washington DC Unprepared for Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s Universe Shattering Surprise.” I daresay that Sheriff Joe is pretty far down on the list of things the White House is preparing for (if it’s on the list at all and I doubt that it is). Given the total insanity of the stuff from the Cold Case Posse to date, it could be anything, not bounded by facts or evidence. Maybe they will find some elderly person suffering from dementia who doesn’t remember Obama being born in Hawaii (or for sure whether they were ever in Hawaii). Maybe they will discover the dirty little secret that the State of California’s certification of the Electoral College vote for Obama, residing in PDF format at the National Archives HAS LAYERS! Maybe they have latched onto one or more of the strange tales of women who claim Obama was born in Kansas, or Florida! My guess is that it will be something about the conduct of the 2008 or 2012 election in Arizona.
Certainly conservative members of Congress are interested. Here are just two examples from the BR article:
Rep. Labrador: “I really haven’t been following that at all.”
Rep. Huelskamp: “Honestly, I haven’t been following that at all.”
Clearly Arpaio and Zullo have the element of surprise in their favor. Commenting on the article, Gillar said last night:
Things are a bit different this time. The LFBC and Selective Service Card investigations resulted in the discovery of many other crimes that were committed by this regime. Some of which will piss off democrats and republicans alike. Don’t focus on a timeline. As far as I’m concerned as long as it breaks by summer and impacts the 2014 midterms, I’ll be happy. The delays are coming because of the amount of time that is taking to retrieve and log the large amount evidence as well as make sure the proper chain of custody is preserved and recorded. The evidence is different this time. I’d back off criticizing the CCP. You’ll have a lot of egg on your face when this is over if you continue.
By Summer? What the hell am I going to write about for the next 5 months? Do I have to come up with endless regurgitations of old articles with escalating cataclysmic titles as Birther Report does? Do I have to (shudder) cover Orly Taitz every day? This is a serious inconvenience!
My career expertise in vital records isn’t going to help much in mending the shattered universe, as the topic goes off in another direction, again from Gillar last night:
Arpaio knows. As Mike said, the wall between the CCP and MCSO have come down given the nature of the new crimes discovered. As I’ve said on other boards, the LFBC is just the tip of a very large iceberg of corruption. Americans will wonder if there is anyone left in government that they really can trust by the time this is over.
I know the LFBC is the focus for many of you, but the entire story will knock you socks off once it comes out.
As for Sheriff Arpaio, let me offer some advise from Holy Scripture:
Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.
In the meantime, as I face a long dry spell of no birther news, I console myself with the wisdom of the ancients:
In case you didn’t hover over the Arpaio picture at the top of the article, the title is “Ventriloquist Mike Zullo operates lifelike Joe Arpaio dummy.”
