Shrimpton gets jail time for false report

Photo of Michael ShrimptonOne of many birther hopes that didn’t pan out, British barrister Michael Shrimpton was convicted and sentenced to 12 months in jail for making a nuclear bomb threat he said was based on information from “European sources.” There was no bomb and the judge was convinced that Shrimpton knew the report was false. The judge concluded:

… Michael Shrimpton, who is not just a harmless eccentric, but a menace has today been sentenced accordingly.

Shrimpton was also noted for his cock-and-bull story about the CIA and Obama’s DNA, and his conviction for having indecent photographs of children on a flash drive.

    Mr. Shrimpton is the perfect person for Birthers to admire. 🙂 Perhaps your including an article here may motivate a new article over at Birther Report.

    “One of many birther hopes that didn’t pan out, British barrister Michael Shrimpton ………. “There was no bomb and the judge was convinced that Shrimpton knew the report was false.”

    I think many people believe A/Z’s reports about the birth certificate are false as well. Time is not the friend of Birthers who would conceal the truth.

    Curious George: I think many people believe A/Z’s reports about the birth certificate are false as well.

    I think that the inmates at Gerbil Report know deep down that A&Z day is never going to come. They would just rather lash out at anyone who says something to that effect, than just come out and admit it to themselves.

    There seems to be some ambiguity about Shrimp Dip’s bar ticket, it was supposedly just suspended over the porn conviction, but it sounds like after this escapade that the temp suspension became permanent. So whatever legal practice he had is now gone for good. He truly is a dead beat at this point.

    Could it have happened to a more deserving liar? He got lots of points for his authoritative demeanor but he was flying on nothing but hot air. It’s good that his lying DNA fantasies are discredited along with him. Obama was NOT born in Kenya. He was, as everyone at the Fogbow knows, born in Vancouver, B.C.

    Shrimpton was also noted for his cock-and-bull story about the CIA and Obama’s DNA

    I have a theory that may tie some of these people together:
    We were speculating in what regard precisely Zullo was scammed by Dennis Montgomery (which probably led to the cancellation of their promised March revelation).
    What if it had something to do with DNA?

    * We have Shrimpton bringing DNA into the case.
    * We have Zullo and/or Gallups making allusions that at least some of the “deep dark secrets” may involve who Obama’s parents are/aren’t.
    * We have a con artist with experience in scamming people using fake technology.

    So what if Montgomery promised Arpaio/Zullo something about Obama’s DNA? Either a way of obtaining the President’s DNA or a “new technology” to analyze obtained DNA (as in “by just looking at this sample, my system can tell that this person’s father was not African”)?

    Shrimp Dip lives in a fantasy world far beyond the kenning and comprehension of us mere mortals, thank goodness, but it is a world of fantasy in the final analysis.

    And they banned sour mouthed Savage from entering the country!
