    For a few of the birther-type commenters, it seems far more charitable to beat them over the head with ideas, than with the sorts of implements one is tempted to use.

    Russia IS involved in placing Obama in power. So is Cuba. That’s an absolute. I have firsthand knowledge of that one. It’s obvious to everybody by now that (1) It’s designed to set off a Civil War; and (2) It’s designed to pave the way for Cuba or Russia to place another King on the American throne and (3) Overthrow America for the Hispanic New World Order.

    Reagan In. Castro Up.

    Dr. Kenneth Noisewater: Well it certainly explains some of his earlier leaps into craziness.Like at the 2nd press conference he made a comment about photos of Obama when he was a kid were fake but then never touched on it again.At the “sheriff’s conference” he made claims about Russia being involved in placing Obama in power. I think there were even attempts by him to once claim Obama’s parents weren’t his parents.

    Typical.

    Birthers have always been nasty, but I wonder whether they’ve drifted further into nastiness because it’s really all they have left.

    I am still amazed how possible it is these days to actually say something meaningful at BR. Like, this, for example, from rantalbott:

    “The BC is a forgery that spent time in Adobe Photoshop before it was posted on the WH website.
    Just as the COLB spent time in an earlier version of Adobe Photoshop. ”
    And your EVIDENCE for that would be?

    Not only has no one ever offered any evidence _that_ the images were made in Photoshop, no one has ever offered any evidence that it was _possible_ to make the LFBC image with it. At least one of the fake birther “experts” actually tried to reproduce it, and had to give up.

    Meanwhile, it’s been demonstrated that the artifacts that birthers claim are “proof of forgery” are normal products of the kind of scanner the WH is known to use. And documented how to do it, so anyone can independently confirm it.

    “The HDOH merely directs people to the images that the Barry campaign claims that they obtained from the HDOH. ”
    And that’s simply a lie. Actually, two lies: no one in the Obama campaign, or in the WH, has ever claimed that they got the images from the HDOH. And the HDOH has confirmed both that they supplied the short and long form BCs, and that the LFBC image online matches their records.

    —-
    The whole transcript is a hoot. It’s hard to pick a favorite line. I like this one, where the Court is addressing Klayman (at 32-33):

    ” . . . even though you’re now going to be under a specific court order to produce that software October 26th, I’m not naive, and I think there’s a significant chance that, for whatever reason, or reasons,you and/or Mr. Montgomery will not be complying with that order.”

    J.D. Sue November 4, 2015 at 9:04 pm #

    And this gave me a chuckle, after Klayman unsuccessfully sought leave to file “sensitive” documents under seal, and for the Judge’s eyes only so Ms Handman (Risen’s counsel) couldn’t see them (transcript at 42-43):

    MR. KLAYMAN: Now, I do have concerns about it being turned over before you have a chance to take a look at it. And I’ve got to tell you, I mean, Mrs. Handman started laughing when I made reference to Harold Ickes, her husband. But I deposed him twice in the 1990s, and it was believed — and I certainly believe it based on the information I got — that he intimidated witnesses during that period of Clinton scandals. And that’s why the court, Judge Lambert, allowed me to depose him.

    In fact, he was ordered back at a deposition, when he left the deposition room claiming he was going to defecate on my carpet.

    Okay. So I have —

    THE COURT: I think we’re getting a little far afield here, Mr. Klayman.

    MR. KLAYMAN: Okay. I have serious concerns, and I want an order — I would ask the Court to make an order to Ms. Handman not to share this information with her husband.

    MS. HANDMAN: Believe me, he has no interest in it.

    MR. KLAYMAN: Oh, I believe he has a great interest, because Mr. Montgomery does have information about both the Obama Administration and Hillary Clinton, okay, and you are both very close with her.

    THE COURT: Listen, folks, folks, I’m sorry. It’s now 5:30 on a Friday afternoon, and the hearing is about to end. In fact, I thought the hearing did end . . .

    Klayman is sincere. I did have a brief contact with him, I think, over a year ago via FaceBook. I didn’t want to cooperate with him back then because he appeared to be aligned with Cuba’s Ted Cruz and I didn’t want Cuba to be privy to what I had to say.

    I have tried calling him by phone since then. His mailbox is always full. I’m still working on my affidavit/book. It seems like it’s going to take a lot longer than I thought because it spans over forty years of cartel activity.

    The problem is that this conspiracy has put out so much disinformation, a wake of dead witnesses, and a persistant failure to investigate (Arpaio/Zullo) it’s almost insurmountable.

    Believe me, I’ve tried. PBCC alumni/Journalism 1985.

    Dr. Conspiracy:
    I’m finding it remarkable how Klayman is playing all sides of the issue with this cast of characters. He’s defending Montgomery against his detractors, and defending the detractors as well. Tes has a link to the Drake/Weibe case at WYE.

    Klayman seems to have a penchant for whistleblowers.

    OK, hypothetical here: If and when I finish my affidavit giving exact descriptions of how I forged Obama’s birth certificates and why, where does it go? Am I wasting my time trying to get this done?

    My new website is currently under construction:

    http://iforgedobamasbirthcertificates.weebly.com/

    My mother, Gladys M. Owens, passed away a few weeks ago and I found some more photos of when I was younger while attending her funeral which really helps me place the approximate age of when Allen and I took that photo with the plastic Five and Dime Store Hawaiian leis around our necks while celebrating Allen’s birthday which was hosted by the Delgado family. (The oldest Delgado, aka, “The Bikini Killer, ” Maya, Chino, Ernesto “Popeye,” Jaime, and Humberto who has just been released from death row in Tampa, Florida for killing a cop which relied on my false testimony).

    Mike Zullo Moore is right about one thing, if you’re going to give an affidavit covering Obama’s birth certificates, it DOES need to be more than a sentence or two which is all that I gave in the first one that I sent to the FBI.

    Also, does that first affidavit hold a position in the courts? And, if so, what courts? Since they’ve clearly classified just about every aspect of the forgeries, it’s impossible to tell who, where, or what is in play here.

    I’ve made it quite clear that, unlike the issue of the blue dress with Mike Volin who raped me in 1985 and who tried to throw me in prison for a minimum of twenty years, I have no concerns about coming forward.

    Again, the problem is, as long as it’s classified and Mike Zullo Moore and Joseph Arpaio refuse to answer my calls, I have no way of knowing which way the wind is blowing or where.

    H/t to Doug and Joe Hagmann who were the only ones to allow me to talk on air. I don’t know for sure. But, I can only assume I was quickly discredited by Jerome Corsi, who is not telling the truth about the mailman, along with quite possibly Mike Zullo Moore, Arpaio, and Volin.

    H/t to Doc Conspiracy as well for allowing me to post.

    Exposing Volin and Mike Zullo Moore exposes the truth about Vincent Foster and will unravel the lies surrounding Pablo Escobar and his early years as a leader of the Medellin Cartel.

    Jeb Bush doesn’t stand a snow ball’s chance in H*ll of winning as Donald Trump already knows and is, if the reports are true, quite possibly looking at a life of poverty and/or prison if he doesn’t end up killing himself first.

    Seriously, who kills off American agents just so that no witnesses are left behind to dispute the Gorbechev kill which I’m sure George and/or Jeb Bush claimed for themselves? Pathetic!

    These early years of Pablo Escobar, as I have said before, cover the Adam Walsh murder, the Tiffany Sessions murder, Hoffa, JFK, Jr., The Iceman, John Lennon, Gorbechev, Reagan’s assassination attempt, Lt. Sabow, one murder with OJ Simpson, several with Larry Nichols, whom I liked and respected by the way, Pablo Escobar himself in 1990, and possibly Walter Mondale just to name a few.

    alg: Good frigging gawd.I can’t tell who is the most dense, you or Cody.

    Cody’s “case” is closed, finished, done, ended, shitcanned.

    Nancy R Owens: OK, hypothetical here: If and when I finish my affidavit giving exact descriptions of how I forged Obama’s birth certificates and why, where does it go? Am I wasting my time trying to get this done?

    Are you seriously asking this question?

    If you can precisely duplicate Obama’s birth certificate PDF from scratch, using Photoshop or a similar program, and then give a rational and coherent explanation for why anyone would ever have chosen to spend hundreds of hours building a document in that way, and prove that you could, in fact, have forged Obama’s PDF, then I will personally buy you five steak dinners.

    In reality, I could just as well promise to buy you a car, or a house, or an island in the Bahamas. Because it can’t be done.

    I suppose the question of whether you’re wasting your time comes down to whether you’re having enough fun doing it to warrant spending your time that way. No one is ever going to believe you forged Obama’s birth certificate, or at least very few people will, for the simple reason that you didn’t. Even birthers don’t believe your confessions to have forged Obama’s birth certificate. That should be a signal of a lost cause, and that your time might be better spent on something else.

    If you ask me, you’d be much better off writing romances (maybe with an intrigue kind of twist) or volunteering at Habitat for Humanity.

    Even if you spend your time writing romances-with-intrigue, you might be able to sell a few. You might eventually build more of a name for yourself as an author than you will as a confessor.

    Nancy,

    You’ll need to do much, much more than that. First, you want to document and video you doing the whole thing from start to finish, complete with written instructions and step by step imaging after you complete each step. You will need to be observed by at least 2 independent observers, and give all your personal information for a thorough background check. Then package everything up with a return address and contact information and mail to:

    Sheriff Joe Arpaio
    Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office
    550 West Jackson Street
    Phoenix, AZ 85003

    Now make sure you keep duplicates of EVERYTHING! They have a tendency to mislabel and lose valuable evidence there. But, this is the man that can get your information out there and investigate it for you. Maybe even get you a hearing! Good Luck and if you don’t hear back from them in a week, send another copy…they probably lost your last one.

    Even though anything related to Obama’s academic records is low-hanging fruit, I think the most fun would be pushing Carson on Davis. My gut feeling is that would be the most popcorn-worthy.

    She’s describing a fictional experience; nevertheless, the name “Mike Volin” identifies a particular person with a real identity. Owens’ allegations make a mockery of women who have actually suffered sexual violence (just as her statements about murdering people are deeply offensive to anyone who has been touched by real violence).

    Why, within an on-line community noted for its civility, is Owens permitted to post disgusting fabrications about rape and murder? While an open thread can accomodate many topics, it seems odd to allow comments that violate basic standards of decency.

    They were smart enough to take photos and I think they took samples of semen as well. I was very much afraid of Volin. Why does he start to stutter in this video? Professionals don’t stutter. If I’m lying, why doesn’t he sue? Why doesn’t he file for an injunction?

    Carson wrote in his book that he met Gen. Westmoreland in Detroit on Memorial Day in 1969, but Westmoreland was in D.C. that day. Now Carson’s people are saying that the meeting took place at a banquet earlier in the year. Even if the meeting with Westmoreland took place, nobody was in a position to offer Carson admittance to West Point because he was never nominated by a Senator or his House Representative. And this supposedly happened during Carson’s senior year in high school, which was much too late to gain admittance to a service academy.

    Carson also doesn’t remember the name of a relative he almost stabbed, he doesn’t remember the names of white high school classmates he claims to have protected during a riot at his school after Martin Luther King was murdered, and none of his classmates remember him protecting anyone.

    I think the best, and most succinct, response to his pyramid theory was someone who posted a cross-section diagram of one of them, showing a town-sized pile of stones, with little tiny rooms that made up less than 1% of its volume. Unless he thinks the Egyptians knew about, and planned for, neutron bombs, even he has to see that his notion is preposterous on the face of it. But then, he believes in a deity that played the most massive practical joke imaginable 6000 years ago, constructing an entire universe full of evidence indicating it was millions of times older.

    Wasn’t that the very same premise Phil Farmer used in his WORLD OF TIERS novels?

    I wrote a WORLD OF TIERS short story for the book “The Worlds of Philip José Farmer 2: Of Dust and Soul” (Meteor press) a few years ago, in which a French archaeologist (a real-life person who went on to become one of our best SF writers) finds a table only 100,000 years-old inside a millions years-old rock and correctly deduces that Earth was made by the Lords, who simply faked the evidence.

    Oops: I was sure I read a news story recently saying that Carson had claimed the Big Bang Theory was the work of Satan. However, I just read another one saying that was what he called evolution, and he believes the BBT is “a fairy tale”.

    So somebody is mistaken here, and I don’t know whether it’s me, or one of those reporters.

    Lupin: Wasn’t that the very same premise Phil Farmer used in his WORLD OF TIERS novels?

    I had to look it up, because I wasn’t a Farmer fan (my tastes run more toward stories about how humans respond to technological change or First Encounters, and satirical series like Retief or the Stainless Steel Rat. The cover art suggested “fantasy” at the time, so I passed them by in favor of the rich supply of what I liked). But, yes, it’s the same idea (though on a more modest scale, if I read the plot summaries correctly).

    I have no quarrel with anyone who wants to believe that their deity of choice initiated the Big Bang (not while we don’t have a scientific explanation of the mechanism). I won’t even argue with those who hypothesize that abiogenesis didn’t happen, and Earth was actually seeded by a deity or alien biochemists (as long as they agree it’s only a hypothesis, and not fact).

    But young-Earth creationists who deny the reality of the evidence are beyond the pale (I don’t argue with them, either: I just avoid them as much as I can). I firmly believe they shouldn’t be put in a position where they can make policy more important than the prom theme, or the order of events at the county fair. Come to think of it, I’m not even sure they should have the final word on the prom theme, lest they choose something biblical.

    Carson’s presence on the GOP leader board may be a sign of impoending societal doom.

    If they had suspected you were raped, they would have called the police and you would have answered questions. There would also be a report that could still be found if it had happened as you claimed. In fact, you could post a hospital record from then for proof of your latest story.

    As usual, you give bits and pieces of your story each time you tell them, then change them in the next telling. You’ve been lying since day one about the picture you claim is you and Obama and have included almost everyone who has name has been mentioned in the birther saga as part of your past. The people who live in Clewiston have said you’re lying, including your family members. Nobody believes you on here or anywhere else so why do you continue to post this b.s.?

    There is one important question you refuse to answer because you know it proves you to be a liar. You can’t explain the age difference between Obama and his sister in the photo you claim is you despite you being the same age as him. The girl in the photo is clearly several years younger and it was taken in Hawaii at his graduation from high school. The other pictures of the event show him with the same lei and with Maya Soetoro in the same dress and Barack Obama with the same sport coat. NOBODY would wear a sport coat to a party in Florida in August. It’s the little things that have always tripped you up. You ought to go write fiction, your horror stories could probably sell.

    In fairness to Carson, he might be right about what it was back then. All I actually remember is the order of magnitude: it was double or so the two years of active duty if you enlisted. I read the five year figure as part of the recent news coverage, and it might have changed in the intervening decades.

    But I think that’s silly nitpicking, and the real emphasis should be on his anti-science attitudes. Which are not atypical for the GOP, who put Paul “Lies from the Pit of Hell” Broun on the (bleeping) Science, Space and Technology committee of the House. Appointing someone who thinks the government shouldn’t be funding the space program because it’s not a proper function is a legitimate philosophical difference that might even help prevent boondoggles. But picking someone who thinks that the ISS stays in orbit because it’s dangling from God’s carpet of stars shows a lack of fitness to govern.

    The Register (a British IT mag that’s also/entirely online) did/does something similar to the “Golden Cocoon” awards. A couple of outstanding examples were a group of about 10 software license certificates, with each single sheet of paper packed in its own 1 cubic foot or so box, and a small replacement part (a mouse, I think) that was not only ridiculously over-packaged, but shipped on its own pallet.

    My recollection of the service commitment at the Air Force Academy in the 80s was that it varied depending on your career path. For those of us who became pilots, as I recall it could vary from 8 to 10 years, plus National Guard service. The basic commitment for non-pilots was 8 years, which was at least 5 years active duty plus 3 years reserves.

    My commitment also was extended because of graduate programs I took. In any event, I served 18 years until my eye injury.

    When I decided I wanted to go to the Academy, my Dad took me to see our Congressman, who we knew. I still had to take tests, fill out an application, and pass a background check. No one ever said to me that he could guarantee me a full scholarship. No one used the scholarship word.

    I wanted to note Klayman’s stunning victory against the NSA.

    His original widely reported victory, I guess a couple years ago now, was when the news reports said the NSA telephone metadata collection program had been struct down by a Federal judge — but in fact the judge had issued a preliminary injunction barring the NSA from collecting data on the plaintiffs, and stayed the injunction pending appeal.

    Today’s victory is being described in somewhat more guarded terms, but in fact has some microscopic effect, unlike the last victory. This time, there are more plaintiffs — I think about two more? — and the judge has added them to the injunction and unstayed it. So now the NSA cannot collection metadata on those individuals.

    The program has for some time been scheduled to end on Nov. 29. So this order affects 20 days of collection on a handful of people.

    In the kingdom of Thuth, the king declared, on penalty of death, that all in the kingdom should bow down and worship him. Each inhabitant was therefore brought before the king to perform obeisance. One refused, but the king decided to overlook the slight. Then there was a second, then a third, then a fourth. The king tolerated them until there was one more, and that was too many. The king declared:

    “What? Five? Die agnostics!”

    For the uninitiated, WATFOR was short for Waterloo FORTRAN, but its successor was called WATFIV (Waterloo FORTRAN IV).

    My first “computer language” was FORTRAN IV, the IBM DOS implementation. I have seen WATFOR/WATFIV, but never used them.

    Ah yes, It was 1972 for me with the punch cards. When I was working for the County around 1977, We replaced our key punch machines with video display terminals. I wrote an IBM 029 card punch emulator (in FORTRAN probably) including the program drum card so the data entry folks wouldn’t have to re-learn everything. I wrote it in FORTRAN because it was the main language for the Pr1me minicomputer we had. The operating system was written in FORTRAN and Assembler.

    Speaking of cutting edge computing…

    Nancy,

    You know that Mike Zullo is in Arizona for at least the next several days due to the trial. Now is the time for you to call the Sheriff’s Department and ask to speak to Mike Moore. I’m certain that you’ll find all the proof you need to determine they are two different people. Also, look at the picture of Zullo on the front of the newspaper article you posted and look at Mike Moore’s FB pic. If you can’t admit they are two different people, you are the one with the problem, nobody else but you believes this nonsense about them being the same person.

    Reality Check November 9, 2015 at 9:56 pm #

    I’ve done several Windows 10 upgrades and none have gone perfectly. On my desktop Windows 7 machine the video card started locking up after I upgraded to 10 so I reverted to 7 back in August.

    I tried the upgrade again on the same machine last week and the first time failed altogether. The second installation worked but he Start button was not working. I did a several thing to try to fix it and finally got it working by toggling the tablet mode on and off a couple of times.

    I still have a problem with the search box on the task bar not working on a laptop that was upgraded from 8,1. I will get around to that one when I have time.

    Reality Check: I’ve done several Windows 10 upgrades and none have gone perfectly. On my desktop Windows 7 machine the video card started locking up after I upgraded to 10 so I reverted to 7 back in August.

    I have done two Win7 64bit Home edition to Win10 64bit Home edition upgrades and one 32bit upgrade so far and all have gone perfectly smooth.

    The only issue I had with any of them was when I tried to clone my Samsung 256G SSD to a new Samsung 512G SSD before the upgrade on my main machine. I wanted to have a plug and play backup before I committed may ‘real’ machine to Win 10 upgrade since so many people seem to be reporting problems.

    The Samsung Data Migration program copied the C:\ drive perfectly but the new disk wasn’t bootable and I must have initialized it and retried it about 5 times. Fortunately I also have a Western Digital spinning disk in the machine so that allowed the WD cloning utility to run against the two SSDs. The result was perfect and I just unplugged the 256G SSD, plugged in the 512G SSD, ran the upgrade and viola! Perfect result.

    I have one more machine to go – my Wifes Win8.1 laptop. It doesn’t have a CD drive so I have to figure out how to get the upgrade on to a USB message stick. It’s also the only one of the three that is a Pro edition. So maybe that’s where I’ll see problems. I might have a more difficult time getting a ‘clone’ of her disk too, we’ll see.

    Then I might just pay up for the upgrade to ‘Pro’ on my main machine.

    Dr. Conspiracy: My first “computer language” was FORTRAN IV, the IBM DOS implementation.

    My first “computer language” was IBM 1401 Assembler (quite fun actually), but soon ‘upgraded’ to 1401 Fortran IV. The 1401 Fortran IV compiler was actually quite advanced for its time, better than the IBM 1130 Fortran IV Compiler and better than the IBM 360 DOS Fortran IV compiler.

    The 1130 was supposedly aimed at scientific computing, and indeed the Lunar and Planetary Lab at the University of Arizona (they got one of the very first Lunar rocks distributed to research labs) used one. My brother worked there at the time I was using a 1401 at the Tucson School District #1. The 1130 compiler did not support logical IF statements, while the 1401 could.

    When I started working for the City, they had a 360 and ran DOS. They were having all kinds of trouble trying to read census tapes and process them with SPSS (which at the time was just a collection of Fortran callable subroutines. Turns out the DOS FORTRAN compiler run time routines had a completely artificial restriction on the record size (255 IIRC) that could be defined with a FORMAT statement even though the control variable was a half word and could handle 32K. I think census records were 1024 bytes or something like that. It also could not read multi-volume tape files and the Census files ran to 10 tapes or so. I fixed so a special configuation of the UNIT statement identified that the user wanted big records and big tape files and patched the runtime “on the fly” to make the record limit 32K and to use the ‘proper’ OPEN macro that could read multivolume files. ‘Easy’.

    Then I found out we were using the obsolete ‘freebee’ Fortran Compiler and the IBM expected everyone who wanted to do ‘real’ work would buy the ‘new’ one which could do all those things out of the box. Stuff that, with my patches we had a better compiler anyway – I could talk to the COBOL runtime library too, so we could call FORTRAN routines from COBOL programs, even in CICS (which had special needs when going into a wait – youi didn’t issue OpSys waits in a CICS program). I don’t think anybody else in the world was able to do that. IBM really never had any interest in making their runtime libraries compatible across languages – unlike CDC that had the best compilers in the industry.

    The UofA had WATFOR and WATFIV available on the CDC6400, but nobody used it much; CDC’s Fortran was much better. We did use a lot of other Waterloo utilities though and a few years later I used some of the Waterloo VM library utilities at the City. I ‘stole’ an idea from them for a VM/CMS program to monitor DOS guest machines background partition status and expanded it into a full blown Operator’s Control panel – it display all status for all DOS partitions like tape mount requests, it was really cool at the time and way way ahead of any commercial product out there. That program was spread to several sites, I don’t know if anyone tried to commercialize it – Computer Associates used to do that sort of thing, but I never approached them about it. IBM was too intent on getting DOS shops to move to MVS to recognize that the VM and DOS/VSE combo was much more flexible. VM rules (on IBM). I still have that program on tape in my bookroom. One of these days I’ll get the tapes copied to a USB message stick for posterity if they are still readable.

    He’s BAAACK ….. Wayne Allyn Root

    “It’s time to DEMAND that Obama release his Columbia college records.”

    Why are Obama’s college records sealed? Did they show bad behavior? Was he caught using drugs? Were his grades terrible?

    One possibility is that Obama beat the long odds of being accepted for transfer into Columbia by claiming status as an Indonesian “foreign student.” People familiar with the admissions process tell me that was a likely way to jump ahead of other applicants. But, of course, if true it would be out and out fraud.

    http://www.theblaze.com/contributions/release-the-records-ben-carson-vs-barack-obama-college-edition/#

    Flashback to 2014: Ben Carson defended birtherism on Alan Colmes’ Fox News radio show in May of 2014, and said if Obama didn’t want people to be suspicious of him, he should release all of his records. Carson called having past records exposed “reasonable” if someone is running for office. Yes, this is the same Carson that is now claiming no other candidate has ever been vetted like he is being vetted.

    “Don’t you think it is reasonable for people who are seeking public office … to allow people to see what they are getting and to expose their past records.”

    Asked if Carson has any questions about whether Obama was born here, Carson said, “I do have questions about where he applied from…”

They can’t win fair and square, so they want the referee to remove their opponents from the playing field.

    Our comments are fact based, with sources when requested. All I get in return is references to gay sex and bodily functions.

    Also, Mike Moore was born in 1946 and will turn 69 next month.

    Mike Zullo was born in 1960 and turned 55 last month.

    In addition to the age difference and other obvious differences, Mike Moore has very prominent cheeks which Zullo does not.

    I just remembered that Nancy once called Mike Moore’s home phone in Clewiston. Moore’s wife answered the phone, and Nancy asked to speak to “Mike Zullo Moore.” Mrs, Moore, of course, had no idea what Nancy meant by that.

    Nancy apparently imagines that Mike Moore undergoes plastic surgery before he travels to Arizona, and then he has plastic surgery reversal surgery before he returns to Clewiston. He must be a fast healer.

    I guess I spoke too soon about Klayman’s victory over the NSA — the next day the appeal court stayed the preliminary injunction. There will be a hearing later this month, so maybe the stay will be lifted then?

    But what I find really interesting is that the injunction on Monday was widely reported — but about the stay on Tuesday, I have been only able to find two reports, at the Guardian and Ars Technica. Must have something to do with the definition of news.

    My email to Mike Zullo Moore, might have been included in the evidence log. Here’s my photo proof of this email which I have decided to add onto my webpage for the time being.

    And, since when do you have to chase down investigators? I realize that every day that went by meant more and more donation funds going into Zullo’s account. But, at some point you have to do your job.

    Do you think Ms. Zullo Moore got to spend any of that money? If she did, will she have to appear in court as well?

    Obstruction of justice? Treason? What would it be?

    Jim: She’s been a baaaaad girl!

    Ooooo, got her real phone #? 😛

    Perversely, I’ve gotten more telemarketing calls after signing up with donotcall.gov than I got before. Happily, the ones I get now are all from just two scammers, so I just need to update my contacts list whenever they start using/spoofing a new phone number, and I get a distinctive ringtone warning whenever they call. I do wish the FTC would actually do something about them, though: despite multiple detailed complaints, they’re still going at it. I’d be willing to bring back the stocks for “Rachel from card services”: those (bleeps) are completely unashamed of running a criminal scam.

    Nice “ice-pick” quote of the day there, Doc. I recently discovered the joys of the “Other” Facebook inbox, which I didn’t even know I had. Anyway, I found this gem in there:

    “I tell you what would be a wonderful thought to me after reading your smart ass comment. Meet you in person. Because I would
    Love for you to try and use your mouthy attitude in person to me like you did on the site about Obama’s birth certificate. I guarantee you one thing. You wouldn’t even get half your smart mouth words out before I would be on you like white on rice dude. Your talking to a 22 year veteran of the military and I don’t take smart ass comments well. Tell me where and I’ll be there jerk.”

    I don’t even remember what I said, but the truth is that one of the trials of my soul is that I don’t always suffer fools gladly, so it was probably something about idiots or goofballs or something. Anyway, I took a look at his Facebook page, and, interestingly enough, it was FULL of these “A Little Word of God for a Wonderful Day” entries. So I picked one out, and sent it back as a reply to his message:

    “A LITTLE WORD OF GOD FOR A WONDERFUL DAY
    The Fight For Your Life!
    There is a fight going on inside of me this very day. It is a terrible fight between two identities. One is evil—he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, pride, superiority, and ego. The other is good—he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.
    This same fight is going on inside you, and inside every other person, too.” Think about it for a while! Then ask yourself, “which identity will win?” The answer is, “The one you feed.”
    Presently, are you the good or evil identity? If you are the evil and would like to change that then seek out a Christian and he or she will help place you on the right path for success. There is really only one way to get there and that is through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. You must first find the Faith then you can fight the good fight!
    God Bless, May the Faith be with you, Always!”

    I haven’t heard back from him. But I have been trying to be a LITTLE more patient.

    The Clintons are covering with this false article. I knew Larry Nichols and did work with him for about a week when the Clintons were in South Florida.

    He is a hit man. Nichols and I spent about a week in Miami countering the Hispanic infiltrators after I provided a false alibi. There was just chump change to be had and Nichols bowed out saying he was going back to work for the Clintons. His list contains at least two false statements which render this whole article false.

    I think Larry Nichols still works for the Clintons.

    Re the Paris massacre.

    As often, the law of degrees of separation kicked in. I found out last night that a writer of my acquaintance — more a convention acquaintance than a close friend — was at the Bataclan during that tragic night.

    (During the earlier Charlie-Hebdo massacre, the artist Cabu was also a good acquaintance of mine.)

    Fortunately, she was near a safety exit and she and a number of other people were able to evacuate quickly without being harmed — physically at least, because I can’t imagine what she went through.

    The Paris authorities have set up counseling for what is obviously PTS and I hope she’ll avail herself of it.

    On a slightly-related note, I though Falcon’s bombastic blowhard pronouncements on the subject at GerbilReport were pretty nauseating; I had to figuratively bite my fingers to not respond. He also has zero understanding of the situation on the ground, but that’s not surprising.

    First, the hearts of decent people are heavy concerning the sudden and violent loss of life in Paris. I don’t know that revenge is the the most accurate depiction. A vengeful heart is true for some, but in general, people want ISIS/ISIL stopped. There is a difference. I have friends with children in the military who will be affected if the U.S. gets involved, but the kids had their eyes wide open going in. One or both parents had military careers.

    I’ve been commented a good deal at BR of late. Here’s a bit from an exchange:

    JeffProv19_9 “When people use loaded phrases like ‘thoroughly debunked’ they are not reporting or giving you facts so you can evaluate and decide the merits for yourself. Rather, they are practicing a subtle form of mind control and telling you WHAT TO THINK,”

    Is that why birthers always say “conclusively proven” along with their claims that Obama’s birth certificate PDF is a fake?

    I make no secret of it: I choose the “thoroughly debunked” language as a conscious choice as a foil to the “conclusively proven” language. They both are attempts to persuade.

    However the substance of the argument, which doesn’t fit in a sentence that will be accessible to someone with the short attention span of the typical Internet browser, is that the PDF forgery theory HAS been thoroughly debunked by experimental results from a real piece of security paper with a BC image was scanned by a real Xerox machine and rotated by a real Mac using Preview, that produced the same sort of document, anomalies and all, that we see in the White House PDF.

    The REAL 1961 statistical reports from Hawaii show that the penciled code “9” is the correct value for the race of Obama’s father. Analysis of REAL known certificate numbers from August 1961 show that Obama’s is in alphabetic sequence like the rest.

    So while I use the words “thoroughly debunked” for impact and persuasion, they are absolutely

    You should do what I did. Call them up and ask them.

    Mike Zullo is Mike Moore. I’ve outed someone who has over 40 years of botched investigations.

    I did this in the hopes that they would remove him as investigator and put in someone who could actually get the job done.

    How would I be wrong here? I don’t see it.

    Not to mention, someone who might be facing charges.

    If they claim they were just trying to protect, that is simply not true. The people that Mike ZulloMoore used to work for, and possibly still does, have a history of murdering off innocent people in favor of the drug cartels.

    That is illegal.
