Trump’s son talks about his dad’s Birtherism

Eric Trump’s previously unpublished comments from 2014 praise his father for raising the Obama birth issue. NBC News carried the story yesterday.

Younger brother Eric credited his father with “starting a conversation” about Obama’s birthplace that would not have taken place without him.

What Donald Trump actually did was to revitalize a long-debunked conspiracy theory as part of a trial balloon for his own run for the presidency. Check out the NBC news story for more juicy quotations from Trump’s sons on Donald, the Birther.

Winding down

I dropped by Birther Report, the main hub of online birtherism,  just now and their most recent article is 5 weeks old. Except for furtive and 22tula215 spamming YouTube links, there are pretty no much no new comments either.

Now that the birther’s “great orange hope” has abandoned them, there’s not a lot left in birtherism except occasional nastiness on various new web sites. A good bit of the ugliness has filtered down to Breitbart News, a site that is challenging WorldNetDaily for the most misleading articles.

That’s all fine with me. I’m ready to flush the birthers.

Welcome back, Fogbow

The Fogbow forum is back under a new hosting company and more site security. Foggy wrote yesterday:

Now you can do a post about how Fogbow is back, working perfectly, and super-secured by SiteLock. No more malware – and the blacklisting will be removed early next week.

We see a good deal progress in the recovery from typhoon AnoaGhost. The WordPress front page is restored: Some of the menus still don’t work, but that will come in time, as will the removal of the big red Google scare page you seen when accessing The Fogbow from some browsers.

Update:

The red scare screen is gone now, and the front-page menus have been restored. A cursory check suggests that the forum problem with logins has also been fixed.

Gary Kreep: birther judge in hot water

imageGary Kreep is back in the news, but not in a good way. Kreep was one of the original birther attorneys in California, co-counsel with Orly Taitz in the Keyes/Barnett lawsuit that was eventually dismissed.

Kreep went on to run and be elected Superior Court judge in San Diego, a testament to why judges should not be elected (Kreep got a low qualifications rating from the Bar Association). He was assigned to a low-level criminal court.

I thought that was the last we’d every hear of Gary Kreep, but reality has the habit of surprising us. He’s in hot water for a couple of things, making crude and racist comments from the bench and his 2012 fundraising letter suggesting his US Justice Foundation would “educate” the public about Obama’s crimes including Obama’s “fraudulent occupation of the White House” and other campaign irregularities. Kreep could be removed from the bench.

Kreep already paid a $6,
