    Hilarious piece on Steve Stockman was published by Time.com on March 4, entitled Seven ways to Lose an Election! It begins: “Steve Stockman’s Senate challenge in Texas is the most baffling display of ineptitude since Alvin Greene”

    http://tinyurl.com/lbswvcl

    How unsurprising that the Mike Volin and Carl Gallup much-trumpeted (and ONLY) HIGHLY INTERESTED CONGRESSMAN for promoting a Congressional investigation of Obama’s absurdly posited document “forgeries”, turns out to be as hopelessly inept a politician as Lady Liberty is a lawyer!

    Mike Volin’s sophomoric, interest-non-garnering “Sheriff’s Kit” incubating in unopened miniature yellow clasp envelopes buried in landfills serving the DC area, is as practical and effective IN LIVING UP TO ITS TITLE as would have been a similar envelope during World War 2 containing a hurriedly drawn pencil sketch of the U.S.S.New Jersey and distributed to charwomen as a BATTLESHIP KIT.

    In a Newsblaze article on March 13th, two more underwhelmed recipients of a Sheriff’s Kit, Rep. Raul Labrador (R-Idaho) and Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-Kansas), both of whom are right-wing conservatives and no fans of Obama, were asked if they had been following developments around Sheriff Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse. (the posse which Mike Zullo claimed has determined the image of Obama’s BC posted on the Internet displaying Obama’s birth information and confirmed accurate officially by Hawaii, was a complete “forgery”).

    Rep. Labrador told Newsblaze “I really haven’t been following that issue at all.” Next we talked to Rep. Huelskamp who said almost the same thing – with some additions. He said, “Honestly, I haven’t been following that at all.”
    Rep. Huelskamp did say,.”I just did fifteen town halls in the last couple of months. I don’t think it [the birth certificate] came up at all. .. Not worried about the President…The birth certificate is not an issue that I’ve heard. We’re not receiving any calls or emails …”

    No kidding? Sounds just about like almost every other member of Congress! Nice job, Mike Volin! Were these clowns your V.I.P.’s, Mike Volin?

    What a bunch of lunatics! Volin gets, effectively, ZERO interest in his little usurper play papers, and concludes from that, that every official must be a coward or a traitor! It couldn’t be that HE is wrong!

    How do Birthers miss the fact that their “evidence” confirms criminality or ineligibility on Obama’s part to no greater extent than it proves that Donald Duck is an ill-mannered gynecologist?

    She also says “I am waiting for the judge to order discovery”.

    I thought the case had already effectively been dismissed, and they were now negotiating terms of surrender (most notably, whether Orly’s going to be sanctioned again). Wasn’t the last conference (postponed because Orly threw her imaginary friend of the judge into the mix) supposed to be an announcement of what was going into the final order?

Her latest folly seems to be an email from someone claiming to work at Google and having been tasked with “downgrading” her pages in the search results. Of course another anonymous “whistleblower” who doesn’t name names.
    BTW whatever happened to that “whistleblower” who was going to send highly important SSA info to Orly?

    I thought it might be helpful to Zullo to give him some additional synonyms for “future” that way he can keep this going for awhile longer.

    “Just around the corner”
    “Imminent”
    “Close at hand”
    “Down the road”
    “In the course of time”
    “Inevitable”
    “From here to eternity”

    gorefan: Zullo gives a five minute interview to Gallups. Announcement coming in “the very near future”. Birthers are very excited to have a new time frame.

    Here’s a summary of some things what Zullo said, for those who can’t stand going to B.R. or listening to the lying “Lieutenant.”

    Both investigations going full force, but I can’t discuss them. But trust me, everyone thing is on track. Yes, last November, I set March as a target date, “but apparently . . . we have more information and we are vetting it.” APPARENTLY? You mean, you’re not really sure whether you have more information? Talk about weasel words! But wait, there’s more:

    “In addition, there are other agencies, if you will, involved, and this requires us, maybe, to take some extra time.” IF YOU WILL? WTF? Either other agencies, like the Sheriff’s Office, are involved or they aren’t. I should note, that in a “Clarification” B.R. says “There are no other agencies involved in the investigation process…”

    Anyway, Zullo encourages the faithful to be patient and that there will be an announcement in the very near future. Gallups defends Zullo’s failure to release things by March, but, he says, the conferences and announcements will occur.

    As to why he’s using Gallups, Zullo whines that the CCP website has been hacked, highjacked, and shut down, and he wanted a secure host from which to make announcements. So the CCP website of the MCSO is too unreliable to be used for announcements? Sounds pretty fishy to me.

    I haven’t been listening to Gallups much (doctor’s orders: she says my latest blood tests show I’m already getting too much smarm in my diet), but I keep seeing other people refer to “conferences”, not “press conferences”. Is this plausible deniability because they know that they’re not going to get any real “press”, and they’re just going to be webcasting to the faithful, like the last couple? Or are the people mentioning him just dropping the “press” because _they_ know that?

    Or could it be that they’re prepping people for an announcement that they’re dropping the “official law enforcement investigation” sham, and replacing it with a “scholarly research” one?

    Hope is a strange thing.

    People cling to hope. The birthers, in particular, cling to hope and false promises.

    It kind of reminds me of a scene in “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.”

    Evil serial murderer has reporter tied up. They have a polite conversation. Evil serial murderer finally says, “Would you like a drink of water?” Reporter says yes. Evil serial murderer then tenderly, kindly gives him a drink of water.

    Then evil serial murderer says, “See? You’re just like everybody else. A simple gesture of human kindness is enough to give you hope.”

    Then evil serial murderer proceeds to hoist reporter from the ground by a rope around his neck and carry on with his plan to murder him.

    The birthers are like that. It doesn’t matter how much they are abused by the likes of Zullo. It doesn’t matter how much BS or how many lies they’ve been told.

    All they need is another smile, another false promise to make them keep believing in the birther myth.

    Well, Arthur, you’ve isolated a couple of real dead fish here in your summary of the Galluping Host’s mock-interview-update of Clown Zoo Low.

    Zoo Low says :”we have more information and we are vetting it” ! Translation:”We’ve made up some more legal crap out of whole cloth and we’re looking for somebody we could say is respected who is crazy enough to say our preposterous extra-legal theory of criminality on Obama’s team could POSSIBLY be right.”

    and

    Zoo Low says “In addition, there are other agencies, if you will, involved, and this requires us, maybe, to take some extra time.” Translation: Hoping bureaucracies can be misrepresented as having confirmed anti-Obama legal premises, if their gate-keeper staff make lunatic-deflecting, non-committal statements of unspecified and generic “interest” in written or screamed charges and allegations against Obama, we are submitting a shit-storm of accusatory crap to every conceivable office, public and private in the United States hoping to get one careless response we can claim trumps the Constitution and requires an immediate violent revolution by every patriot who expects to receive a cardboard CCP badge. This may take a little more time than a real investigation.”

    The only involvement from other agencies are refusals to associate with crazy Birthers.

    Our good friend over at BR who goes by the fictional name of a ’70s TV private detective named “Joe Mannix” has taken issue with others who have posted using the same “Joe Mannix” moniker. For those who want to
    know which “Joe Mannix” is the first poster using the pseudonym at BR, simply ask which “Joe Mannix” has the Cave Creek, AZ, I.P. address. That will keep one imposter from being confused with the other imposter.

    Hardly: banning people who pose as birfer public figures is about the only reasonable thing he’s done as a manager. If he’d banned people for parody handles like “Shurf Joke” or “Corporal Zullo” (which he probably has), I’d agree with you.

    Not allowing people to troll through impersonation is doubly important when you’re riding herd on a bunch of gullible conspiracy nuts.

    I think he’s now painted himself into a corner by allowing multiple types of IDs to be used for posting: he can’t prevent people from using alternate ID providers to impersonate, but he can’t shut off the providers because he has too many users who’d be pissed off by having to switch.

    I’d ask him how the view is from atop his petard, but he’s banned me, too ;-)

    Courtesy of the Twitfeed sidebar, some Sharon silliness: http://www.thepostemail.com/2014/04/09/new-development-in-obama-eligibility-case-in-maryland/print

    Amongst the comical attempts to be ominous, suggesting that Obots need to be fearful because they’ll be outed for all the crimes she accuses them of (without offering even a suggestion of evidence), an interesting allegation about the (not really a) “second investigation”:

    Mike Zullo revealed that a second criminal investigation launched by Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio had discovered that several “Obots” are employed by DARPA, a division of the Department of Defense, which is funded by taxpayers.

    (I have a theory about this one: DARPA is working on a “potential threat identification” webcrawler, and it hit the CCP website because it was following links from overthrowtheusurper.com-type keyboard kommando blogs claiming Corporal Zullo had proven that their Noble Revolution is necessary and justified. So the IPAs of some DARPA machines showed up in the httpd logs)

    And Tracy fair introduces a new conspiracy theory that says Obots are writing the opinions for rejected birfer cases, and telling judges how to rule.

    To quote a judge in a birther case: “Is that all you’ve got?” Seriously, if that’s the universe-shattering reveal, birthers are in for one hell of a letdown. Zullo can “prove” a thousand things that have no bearing on eligibility or the next elections, that wouldn’t interest anyone outside the birfer bubble.

    Extract proxy server log files,

    That’s funny because Zullo never actually said this. Zullo made a claim that they found an obot might have worked on a project funded by DARPA but not that the person actually worked for DARPA.

    Vogt still hasn’t figured out that it only takes one Justice to request a response to a petition, and just four to grant cert. This means that even Clarence Thomas isn’t interested in his nonsense.

    Snopes.com March, 2014 updated article on the President’s SSN:

    http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/birthers/ssn.asp

    “The most likely explanation for the discrepancy is a simple clerical or typographical error: the ZIP code in the area of Honolulu where Barack Obama lived at the time he applied for his Social Security number in 1977 is 96814, while the ZIP code for Danbury, Connecticut, is 06814. Since ‘0’ and ‘9’ are similarly shaped numbers and are adjacent on typewriter keyboards, it’s not uncommon for handwritten examples to be mistaken for each other, or for one to be mistyped as the other (thereby potentially resulting in a Hawaiian resident’s application mistakenly being routed as if it had originated from Connecticut).”

    “Am I treated badly because I’m Italian?”. the Shurf asks, leaving one to wonder whether that’s actually a Cavuto, not a question mark, at the end of the sentence.’

    My guess would be “No”, since I had no idea he was Italian, and I doubt that many others do. And the only people I’ve seen who cared about such things in the last 40 or 50 years have been characters in movies.

    What’s really weird, though, is “And they use that W-O-P on menus to this day”. Now, maybe it’s because I’ve never dined at Lector House, or gone through the drive-thru at the local Cannibal Charlie’s, but I’m quite certain I’ve never, ever, seen that on a menu. I suppose there could be a small-town restaurant somewhere that has sections like “Wop Food” and “‘Murrican Meals” because everyone knows everyone, and knows it’s a joke because there’s no racial/ethnic prejudice involved. But even that seems fairly unlikely. Maybe it’s in the sandwich section, and refers to “White or Pumpernickel”?

    It seems downright bizarre, now, that my father caused a medium-sized scandal when he married a non-Catholic 60 years ago. I suspect some of those clucking relatives would’ve stroked out if they’d lived to see some of his younger siblings grow up to marry people who were Chinese, Vietnamese, and even a “Jap” (although Ken was entirely American: he was born in one of the WWII camps. There was some real concern about how some of the whitebread Midwestern relatives who’d fought in WWII would react, but it turned out that none of them ran for his shotgun when they saw him coming ;-) ).

    Maybe at Zullo’s fraud trial: I still think that the wording of the daffydavit quote, which says Hayes looked at an actual document and not an “image” or “copy”, leaves open the possibility that Zullo had him examine and report on something else entirely. It would be inexcusable for an experienced expert witness to make that kind of gaffe in a sworn statement.

    Of course, “inexcusable sloppiness” might also be the reason that they’re keeping it hidden under the bed with the nudie pics of ex-girlfriends ;-)

    Judson Phillips of the Tea Party Nation Claims Obama Won Because Of Voter Fraud

    (excerpts) “What is the shocking secret that may explain how Obama got a second term?

    A study done in North Carolina showed that 35,750 people who live and voted in North Carolina may have voted in another state in the 2012 Presidential election. The study was based on comparing the first and last names along with date of birth for people who voted in 28 other states. In 765 of those cases, social security numbers matched as well.

    This number would have probably been larger but only 28 states participated and the four largest states, California, New York, Texas and Florida did not participate.

    If you extrapolate this figure out over the entire population, that could be over one million double votes in 2012.

    Liberals shriek that voter fraud never happens. Conservatives don’t engage in voter fraud but liberals do.”

    “Democrats are not winning elections. They are taking them the old fashioned way. They are stealing them.”

    (source: http://www.teapartynation.com/forum/topics/how-did-obama-win-2012)

    The frothing at the mouth birthers and other revolting bigots in the comments section are perfect propaganda puppets.

    Bonsall Obot April 12, 2014 at 6:30 pm #

    Of course, Phillips and his goons (deliberately?) fail to understand that when people move, they don’t un-register as voters in their old locality; it just takes time for them to be removed from the rolls.

    So how many votes did the North Carolina study show were cast by persons who voted elsewhere in the same election?

    Zero.

    Oh, and remember: the tea party is about taxes, not about hating the black guy.

    Dr. Conspiracy April 12, 2014 at 6:49 pm #

    I know for a fact that every day large numbers of people with the same first and last name are born. Even within a medium sized state there will be several every day, meaning thousands per year per state and maybe as many as 100,000 PER YEAR nationwide.

    As I understand this,they are only matching the last 4digits of the SSN, but that only takes a really big number and divides it by 1,000 10,000. 765 might be reasonable number, not something to get excited about.

    That would be really significant if it were true, but it is not. Only the last 4 digits of the SSN where matched. For that 765 is not remarkable at all.

    Actually, it’s 10,000.

    The sourtherstudies.org article points out other sources of error: not every state has a complete set of SSNs for registered voters: some just put in “9999” when the field doesn’t have valid data.

    Additionally, the Crosscheck people acknowledge that some erroneous “double votes” resulted from voters signing the wrong line in the poll registry, or clerks scanning the wrong barcode.

    Crosscheck found a grand total of 14 cases they thought were credible enough to refer to authorities for prosecution. The article does not say whether any of those were in NC, and the authors say they don’t know whether any were convicted.

    As I read it, Cliven Bundy has made an agreement to restart paying grazing fees to the federal government (an entity he recently stated he would not pay at all). How is this a win for Bundy and the gun nuts? The government got Bundy to start paying for grazing rights again, because it’s not fair for one person to get grazing rights for free (for more than 20 years) while everyone else pays for them.

    The Review Journal also mentioned a deal: “Gillespie, flanked by several deputies, announced the BLM deal breakthrough to hundreds Bundy supporters Saturday morning.” – http://www.reviewjournal.com/news/nevada/blm-releases-bundy-cattle-after-protesters-block-southbound-i-15

    Not much is being said about this deal, but, I did hear through a third source (a friend who posted on it) that there was supposed to be a re-establishment of grazing fees payable by Bundy. I don’t know her source.

    When I see the world “deal” I take it as consideration on both sides that is being traded. (ie: grazing rights for payment). I don’t see the BLM making a one-sided deal where they lose, especially after they won in court.

    They got the end of a increasingly dangerous situation which, had it escalated to real violence, would have looked a lot worse for the government.

    That’s what the protesters wanted and they didn’t get it. The government still owns the land and it still has a million dollar judgment against Bundy.

    This is the deal that Mr. Bundy wants:

    http://www.blm.gov/nv/st/en/fo/lvfo/blm_programs/more/trespass_cattle.html

    ” Rancher Cliven Bundy demanded of sheriff Doug Gillespie that all narional park service employees working on the cattle roundup operation be disarmed before 10:45 a.m.

    He gave Gillespie one hour to comply, and added for the firearms to be brought to him. The demand comes on the heels of the Bureau of Land Management pulling the plug on the roundup due to safety concerns.”

    Exactly!

    A quick check of Clark County public records fails to turn up a lien but if the government did go that way Bundy would not be able to sell his cattle without settling the lien.

    No guns necessary to accomplish that….just a few keystrokes.

    This is what we call “chest-thumping.”

    Neither Bundy nor his hoodlum buddies seem to appreciate how lucky they are that the BLM opted to withdraw for the time being; they were practically begging for an armed conflict, and they would not have fared well in one.

    We already have a well-regulated militia in this country; it’s called the National Guard. A bunch of goons wearing surplus camo, awarding each other unearned “ranks” and plinking at beer cans do not qualify.

    Bundy overplayed a very weak hand, and is about to find out how hard it is to get mail, or utilities, or to sell his government-fed cattle, or to even cash a check, once the machinery of the federal government – which has been inordinately patient with him for twenty years – decides to quit dicking around.

    You’re right. These folks are aching for a fight but there is no need for one.

    The market will enforce the lien. Once it is filed Mr. Bundy won’t be able to sell anything with clear title. No one will buy his cattle without it. Same with any real estate, cars, etc.

    Any money he has in the bank will be similarly tied up and could and probably would be seized as soon as the lien is filed.

    A lien will also dry up any lines of credit he has which are critical to farmers and cattle growers.

    Once again Mr. Bundy has made a bad decision that will only make his situation worse.

    Sov-cits are obsessed with liens. They even think the “unalienable rights” referred to in the Declaration of Independence are un-a-lienable rights, in other words, rights you can’t put a lien against; ignoring the divergent origins of the words “alien” and “lien.” They’ll pronounce the word “unaLEENable.” It’s a kind of shibboleth you can use to separate the nuts from the mere cranks.
    I do wonder what they make of “alienation of affection,” though. A little interesting material on this:

    But he and Shereef Our Pie Hole and God, by the way, have authorized me to make up…..no, check that, PASS ALONG an update about the perpetually delayed exciting announcements about Obama’s criminality and unconstitutionalicity!

    I am privileged to know how conclusive all this damning new information will be without being told exactly what it is! It’s that logical! Here it is!

    Both Obama Usurper and criminal investigations are going hot and heavy. Since March 1st as promised, we released the big reveal on the planet Apha Centuri Bb involving the Obama dooming evidence which we here on earth, never identify, but which AS PROMISED continues to shatter the Universe STARTING about 4 light years away, – LISTEN! The big reveal! It’s coming toward us that fast!

    And Listeners? If I over-enunciated these words it iss only to try to make them sound true, Okay?

    As we speak, Major, major, major, media and a veritable 2 person ARMY of IMPORTANT mover-shaker VIP’s who are committed to holding a FULL BLOWN Congressional investigation, are gathering at the PeePee Summons Nutwork Studios. And we’re naming names! Both VIP’s are ‘A’ Players with Presidential designs themselves and yes I’m talking exploding-bible-throwing Robber Codee Joody and the political remains of Lunatic Congressman Steve “you-can-count-on-me” Stickman!

    A few listeners have asked, “CurrrrrrrrrlL? Tell us, just how good is the evidence?Will it hold up in court AND will we win over Obama? Well, No!!!!!!!!! We are not interested in ‘winning over’ Obama. Let him continue to serve his two 4 year terms as President while we bask in the world recognition reserved for malcontented lunatics!

    As far as how convincing our new evidence is, I can promise you it is all in the form of Birther fabricated eye-wit-less testimony, and here in Bifferville, evidence just doesn’t get any better than that!

    Mike! OH MY GOD! It’s Mike Zoo Low! He’s joining me here in the studio! well, NOW, the Rat’s out of the BAG! What say you, Mike? Can we tell it all right now? Let me just reveal – I’m itchin’ to reveal SOMETHING, Mike! Let me just announce that there was really no investigation by the CCP – it was all just Mike Zoo Low trying to scrape up dirt on Bammy”! So what can you tell us, Mike Zoo Low?”

    Co-Madder Mike Zoo Low in a tiny barely audible whine: “not much…nothing …..nothing really…..big….. really ….. big…… Universe shattering…… nothing……. secret…. official secrets axe ……huge…..nothing really…… low-mileage….. no that’s not from flooding in Katrina….. usurper …… could have died …….. could have never been found in that paperbag…….. vicious …… nothing.

    Last year, I read an article in which someone from HDOH (retired, I think) was interviewed about BC processing. I distinctly remember him saying that they did some sorting of BCs during their monthly batch processing to “randomize” them, because they only sampled every second one from each batch to do the vital statistics counting. Among other things, they wanted to be sure they didn’t oversample some geographic areas, and undersample others.

    It appears that I neglected to bookmark it, and I can’t find it through google.

    Does anyone else remember that article, and have a link to it? It appears that the “certificate number out of sequence” meme is harder to kill than a robotic cockroach, so I need to exercise the “nuclear option” on some birfers.

    No, don’t you see, that’s the brilliant ploy from “Mr. 200+ IQ” Zullo – the “all through Gallups” claim is just a ruse, he’ll release his stuff ANY SECOND NOW so we Obots are TOTALLY UNPREPARED and will be in jail before we even make it to the door. ;)

    In 1961, the states sent to the federal government microfilm copies of all birth certificates. The federal government keypunched the even-numbered certificates to make a 50% sample.

    The sample data represent estimates which differ somewhat from figures that would have been derived by processing all the records. However, the manner in which records are numbered greatly reduces the sampling variability of totals for geographic areas. With few exceptions, records are numbered in the State offices of vital statistics as they are received from the local offices. The assignment of the last digit in the number is not selective, and the systematic sample of even-numbered records may be assumed to be unbiased. Furthermore, because the records are almost always in geographic order before numbering, twice the sample count of births occurrring (sic) in the great majority of counties in table 3-1 in Section 3 is virtually the same as the corresponding figure based on all records.

    Vital Statistics of the United States 1961 – Volume 1 – Natality pages 227 and 232.

    The main point, though, is that Obama’s certificate number is exactly what it should be, based on other known numbers. See:

    http://www.obamaconspiracy.org/2012/01/another-1961-certificate-number/

    RanTalbott: Last year, I read an article in which someone from HDOH (retired, I think) was interviewed about BC processing. I distinctly remember him saying that they did some sorting of BCs during their monthly batch processing to “randomize” them, because they only sampled every second one from each batch to do the vital statistics counting. Among other things, they wanted to be sure they didn’t oversample some geographic areas, and undersample others.

    There is some amusing in-fighting and back biting, going on at BR today, in the latest article’s comments thread. Someone called out Falcon, by reposted an anti-Semitic remark he made, then deleted. Not wanting to see their beloved leader under attack, other inmates start piling on her for jumping on Falcon. Lots of shouting in caps and drama ensued.
    Of course, I doubt their fearful leader will allow Furtive’s confrontation with BR’s favorite son go unpunished.

    Thanks for the heads-up. I so enjoy birther back-biting, especially when it involves two of the most outlandish and odious commenters: bird-boy and furtive.

    I see that while trading insults with furtive, bird-boy reveals he’s divorced,

    “I already had one mother-in-law in this lifetime. This isn’t a dating site, even though you seem to think so.”

    I’m certainly not surprised that he’s divorced; I’m surprised he could have found someone who would marry him.

    OK, I know that birthers thrive on delusions, and feed on the fat of “any day now,” but they are really taking it to a new level. There are a series of comments celebrating the fact that Zullo hasn’t made an announcement.

    “No new news today makes me VERY hopeful!”

    “the silence is deafening. no news is good news. watch out for the quiet one.”

    “Wow no news today? So we must be under 48 hours for release.”

    “Keep your powder dry boys and girls. The fan and the s%t are about to collide.”

    But this one wins the prize for pure rebarbative nonsense:

    “A lot people expected a tax day release of the info. my take is that obama expected it too but knew that zullo would know that he would expect it so it was ruled out, because it would not be a surprise. next day to expect the release and not get it due to the aforementioned enigma will be Good Friday, which is what we would expect as a great day for release, its friday and a high holy day, but Zullo knowing that obama would expect it and not be surprised, will rule it out, unless he figures that obama would expect him to rule it out and actually releases the info. i’m on pins and needles popcorn ready to be popped.”

    The Boston Marathon Truthers make my blood boil. I’m a softie Polyanna, but I live in Boston on the marathon route. I want to hit those people.

    We were a mile from the explosions. (And the firefighters who died recently were from the station that serves our building.) I’ve seen the blood. We gave water and food to the runners who were stopped. We were glued to the scanners the night the brothers were loose in Watertown. (I was also translating for one of our Southern friends who was bewildered by the Boston accent.) We sheltered in place. I’ve met some of the victims in PT (my orthopedist operated on several victims). It happened. It was awful.

    Whatever4: The Boston Marathon Truthers make my blood boil.

    I’m still puzzled why the “false flag” conspiracy believers have totally remodeled their base narrative from “the government made it happen” to “the government faked it”. This was first seen in Sandy Hook, then repeated with the Boston Marathon bombing.
    I don’t know why they have to believe everything (including deaths/injuries) was faked instead of the common “false flag” theory that the perpetrators were government agents.
    Maybe it started with those 9/11 truthers who claimed there were no planes involved but missiles covered under “3D holograms”.
    But however it started, it has already morphed into an idiocy that is akin to claiming the WTC never collapsed and had been secretly moved out of the country weeks before 9/11…

    Maybe that was satire. ;)

    An interesting development in Alabama, reported by Reality Check:

    I hope this develops into a full-fledged investigation.

    The Magic M: It would be funny to see birther heads explode when Zullo says “I can’t release the evidence against Obama because that would be racial profiling which I’ve been prohibited from doing”. It would fit their narrative and be a perfect getaway for the Zullster…

    Not to over analyze this but……it seems Zullo probably doesn’t want to offend the gullible to much. I mean who is he going to sell penny stocks, gold or Bitcoins to in his next incarnation?

    So your scenario makes sense: “I would if I could, but I can’t” so let’s move on folks!

    No thanks. Go tell it to Nancy Ruth Owns or Cody Robert Jody. Keep it in your “Three Name Crazies” club.

    The story in the background is really sad, so it´s not as funny as our birther “experts”, but still:

    Under cross-examination by Mr. Nel, who challenged Mr. Dixon’s credentials, the expert said he had no training in ballistics or blood spatter analysis and was a geologist by training.

    Mr. Dixon said he had conducted tests to compare the sound of a toilet door being struck with a cricket bat and the sound of a gunshot. With heavy sarcasm, Mr. Nel questioned the skills Mr. Dixon had brought to the tests. “It seems the skill you used was wielding a cricket bat,” Mr. Nel said, but Mr. Dixon disputed the assertion.

    (there is much more and much more hilarious about this “expert” on the nets)

    Not so. Those people are merely delusional. Birfers are actively malicious.

    I wonder why this hasn’t made big headlines in Birtherstan yet:

    “Salafi preacher convicted of forging official documents in order to run as a candidate in the 2012 presidential elections”

    http://www.dailynewsegypt.com/2014/04/16/abu-ismail-sentenced-7-years/

    * Needed two citizen parents to run for President
    * Lied about mother’s citizenship
    * Forged documents to corroborate that lie
    * Thrown behind bars for 7 years

    In short, a Vattelist’s wet dream come true!

    hmmmm i guess trump decided he was eligible

    Donald Trump makes donation to Ted Cruz

    Trump donated $5,000 to Sen. Ted Cruz’s leadership PAC in January, according to new campaign records.

    In August, Trump said he wasn’t sure whether Cruz could be president because he was born in Canada.

    How’s it hanging dear friends at Doc’s Obama Conspiracy Theories websites?

    The latest riveting one from the WOBIK blog is as follows:

    Attorney Loren Christopher Collins to represent [currently under consideration by me] Lucas Daniel Smith in extradition to Kenya case (Pro bono).

    OK, that has to be the wildest story in recent memory.

    Just for the record, I’m not the one who complained to Smith’s hosting company; in fact I didn’t even know he had posted my deceased parents’ social-security numbers until now. Kinda creepy, though.

    Quite honestly, I’m not following this but, I wonder why you allow this man to queer your site when he does this sort of thing? Not only creepy but ethically derelict.

    Any time Lucas Daniel Smith spends on his own site or on Doc’s is that much less time he can endanger the children of the Dominican Republic, if that is indeed one of the reasons he fled to one of the sex-tourism capitals of the world.

    I’m afraid he comes here just to get what motivates his sad little life – the attention of others. So I’m not going to read whatshisname’s fiction. Sorry and all.

    Dr. Conspiracy April 19, 2014 at 11:01 am #

    I let this one through because I found the claim that Loren had offered to represent Smith in the Kenyan extradition pro bono quite interesting. Smith says that he will make up his mind by April 21.

    Smith will, of course, ultimately refuse because there is no Kenyan extradition, but it will be interesting to see how the game plays out.

    Speaking of that, someone asked if Smith was posting his comments from the Dominican Republic and I checked the IP addresses of his two recent notes.

    When I looked them up at a site called GeoBytes, the IP addresses pointed to Paris, France, not marked as a proxy. That didn’t make sense. Since I’ve had a number of odd results from GeoBytes, I tried another IP locating site that I sometimes use, and it pointed to the Dominican Republic, which is where Smith says that he is. That lookup site is:

    http://www.melissadata.com/lookups/iplocation.asp

    What is interesting, and that I had not noticed before, is that the site is run by MelissaData, which is a deduplication software vendor, and a competitor to my old company that also had a deduplication offering. Record matching is really a fascinating discipline, first approached rigorously by Fellegi and Sunter for the census bureau. They did rigorous mathematical results, but the difficulty is in the application. One can take a Bayesian approach, similar spam filtering. Some use rule-based approaches with manual tuning. Deduplication research was one of the most “fun” things I did professionally.

    Here we go:
    “Republican conspiracy theorists have reported bewilderment today after their persistent claims for documentary evidence of the President’s place of birth were answered by a birth certificate confirming that Barack Obama was born neither in Hawaii or Kenya, but in a stable in Bethlehem.”

    I’m glad you confirmed it, but I never doubted he was in the DR; it’s a natural choice for someone with a shady background and an admitted penchant for underage girls.

    Everything else he claims about Kenya and birth certificates and extradition is, of course, not credible, and all part of his scam. If Steadman is stupid enough to fall for it, I have no sympathy, though I’d be delighted if Smith were someday brought to justice.

    Oh, I did not know this. I stand corrected.
