    I checked Mark Kessler’s facebook page, to read the fallout over what happened in his Fox Noise interview. I can’t tell if the man has just flipped his lid, or someone has taken over his page, and started posting a bunch of joke posts.

    Oh, and on a note relating to the title of this thread. I watched the Grumpy Cat Christmas Movie…really wasn’t worth the time or energy it took to stay awake through it.

    loved this comment:

    “What I am wondering, Mark, is….. are you in that same situation? Have they “trapped” you, or somehow “brainwashed” you? I can guarantee that there are people who would happily help you, if that were the case. There has to be a voice of reason at some point.”

    Seems “attourney” KKKlayman is still unable to properly serve a defendant:

    Plaintiff’s attempt to effectuate service through email and through an attorney not assigned to this case created confusion

    (http://www.birtherreport.com/2014/12/shock-filing-obama-doj-respond-to.html)

    (Also Gerbil Report is back to prefixing every other article with “Shock”/”Breaking”/”Bombshell”.)

    Did he take refresher courses at OrlyLaw? He, of all lawyers, should have enough experience with the government to know how to properly serve them. Looks like another publicity stunt where he provokes a procedural loss to claim his merits would’ve prevailed.

    There’s a poster named Juan, who likes to poke the Gerbil cages with a stick, by popping by every week at GR to say “Another week, and Obama is still the President and still black!”, the reactions he gets never fail to be amusing.

    What’s the story with that Falcon dimwit at GR? Now he’s posting pics and private info of another commenter. The fact that the info is allowed to stay up shows that he must be the main buttboy for whoever is in charge.

    At one point he told some one: “You have no idea who I am”;

    I replied that he sounded so butthurt, that he is most probably John Boehner. Suffice to say, the comment did not pass moderation.

    Well, the rule is that the actual turnout for such birfer events can be no more than 1/1000 of the projections, and none of the sheriffs would volunteer to be cut into fifths for the cause, so they had to cancel.

    (Okay, seriously: I I believe they had a press conference at the National Press Club. GR™ had a short video clip last week by some sheriff saying something in front of the NPC backdrop. But apparently they forgot to pack their “pre-filled warrants”, because there were no news reports of lawdogs barking at the WH gates)

    In a Gerbil Report comment yesterday, the mental mountain a man known as Ted_Underhill explained that he no longer reads National Review Online because of their shabby treatment of John Derbyshire. In case you missed it, Derbyshire fell out of favor with NRO after writing a column sharing advice he would give his children about black people. Among the Dicta Derby:

    10f) Do not settle in a district or municipality run by black politicians.

    10g) Before voting for a black politician, scrutinize his/her character much more carefully than you would a white.

    This struck me as amusing:

    Nebraska, Oklahoma File Federal Suit Against Colorado Over Marijuana Legalization

    The states of Nebraska and Oklahoma filed a federal lawsuit in the U.S. Supreme Court Thursday, claiming that Colorado’s legalization of recreational marijuana is unconstitutional under federal law.

    “Federal law undisputedly prohibits the production and sale of marijuana,” Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning said Thursday in a statement. “Colorado has undermined the United States Constitution, and I hope the U.S. Supreme Court will uphold our constitutional principles.”

    Bruning, along with Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt, argue that under the U.S. Constitution’s Supremacy Clause, Colorado’s legalization of recreational marijuana is unconstitutional because marijuana remains illegal under federal law. The clause states that in general, federal law takes precedence over state law.

    Certainly sounds like Nebraska and Oklahoma are SUPPORTING the Supremacy Clause of the U.S. Constitution, doesn’t it?

    But then there is this…

    Oklahoma House approves national health care law nullification bill, draws criticism

    House Bill 1021, which also would have the Legislature declare the Affordable Care Act as not being authorized by the U.S. Constitution, easily passed the Republican-controlled House of Representatives mostly along party lines 72-20. It now goes to the Senate….

    Ritze, a physician, said his measure is the result of voters in November 2010 passing State Question 756, which was intended to prevent many of the federal health care reforms from affecting Oklahoma, such as making a person or an employer participate in a health care system or buying private health insurance.

    and this…

    Nebraska Moves to Nullify Unconstitutional Obama Gun Laws

    [eMail from “Gun Owners of America” found on Free Republic]

    Nebraska has now joined states like Florida, Arizona, Idaho, Missouri, Kansas, and Alaska in standing up for the Second Amendment — and telling Barack Obama what he can do with his unconstitutional gun bans and gun registration schemes.

    L.B. 1030 would prohibit any Nebraska state or local official from “restrict[ing] the carrying, possession, transfer, purchase, sale, or ownership of or otherwise regulat[ing] any firearm, ammunition, or component of any firearm or ammunition to a greater extent than state law.”

    Keith December 18, 2014 at 6:49 pm #

    By the way, I do notice that the Oklahoma and Nebraska ‘nullification’ attempts are not really ‘nullification’ – they cannot prevent Federal officials from enforcing Federal law within their states just as Colorado cannot prevent the DEA from enforcing Federal drug laws in Colorado. But it sounds nice when the propagandists put all the right buzzwords into their screed in order to attract the bees to the honey..
