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.

    Birthers.org recently posted their farewell screed. A long winded fever rant that bellows about how they just know voter fraud and/or a second civil war is coming. Then the author bizarrely implores black voters, that Obama isn’t a real African American, like they are, and to do the Godly thing. I can only assume he wants them to vote Trump.

    Yeah, just as soon as I knew Mike ZulloMoore and [Recacted. Doc] Mike Volin were the “investigators,” I knew it was all over.

    I wonder how many suckers paid good money for this fake investigation.

    Once again, here’s my video of my confession given to Volin BEFORE I remembered who he is. Of course, “Volin” is not his real name. It’s actually “Sal” and he is one sick, twisted puppy:

    For some reason, YouTube unbanned my video so for those of you who hesitated to log into LiveLink, here is the video on YouTube:

    Oh, I have no doubt that the idiots will find new causes to rally behind, but birtherism has gone cold. Not with a bang, or a whimper but rather a sigh. Every major(and several minor) birther site has either gone dark, switched formats to general nuttery, have been long abandoned by the people who ran them or a combination of any of the above.

    If I was a betting man, I’d wager that most of the denizens from those sites retreated to toilets like Stormfront.

    Their bubble has burst. A/Z day will never come. The realization of the truth that they’ve been lied to and led to believe a fairy tale has brought their faux investigation to a fitting end. The birth certificate investigation has turned around and bitten Arpaio with deadly venomous fangs. His career is over. His defeat at the polls is all but certain. Zullo will need to find a new gig. Gallups will need to turn in his honorary special deputy badge. But, all of this is just the beginning. Criminal charges will soon be determined. Arpaio supporters will be shocked, more so because of their ignorance. The Joe Show is thankfully coming to an end.

    I understand clowns are getting a lot of publicity recently. Apraio could get his next publicity fix with a red nose, a little face paint and goofy polka dot shoes. Quite the legacy, Joe.

    Birther Report posted 2 articles in July, 2 articles in August, and 3 in September – all on September 16 and including that day’s public recognition by Donald Trump that President Obama was born in the United States, “period.”

    For those who remember it at all, birtherism will be remembered as the biggest load of bullsh*t ever foisted upon the American people in our generation.

    Unless an even bigger load of bullsh*t comes along, which I will admit is a possibility.

    Hopefully the ones who invented and pushed this ungodly nonsense – Trump, Taitz, Birther Report, Arpaio, Farah, Corsi, Apuzzo and all the rest of them – will end up feeling that they did nothing but p*ss years of their lives into a bottomless bucket.

    That video of Trump praising Hillary is pretty well known. I think Hillary has even used snippets in ads.

    It is known that Trump talked to Bill Clinton before entering the race and that Bill encouraged him to do it. Is it possible he did so because he thought Trump would be the easiest Republican nominee for Hillary to beat? Sure it is.

    I also look at the campaign Trump has run. The lack of organization, the scattered messages, the lack of debate prep, the lack of a ground game in key states. Is this the result of a totally undisciplined, lazy, mercurial candidate? Sure. But what would a candidate deliberately trying to lose do? Much the same.

    It reminds me of “The Producers”, staging a play designed to bomb that becomes a hit. Also the Nazi theme…

    Such conspiracy theories would of course have to wait until after Trump has lost, or. in case he actually wins, until the dreams of “undoing the entire Obama presidency” have faded.

    A more likely conspiracy theory for after 11/8:
    I wouldn’t put it past the Donald to *falsely* claim he’s been a Democratic mole all along just to rile up his base into rioting (more likely if he’s actually been secretly supported by Russia).

    I haven’t gone through Nancy’s list in great detail, but Henry Lucas died in prison in 2001.

    I don’t know why Mike Moore would have investigated the Reagan assassination attempt, since it didn’t happen in Florida and he wouldn’t have had jurisdiction.

    I couldn’t help but notice that she failed to list the high school classmates she claims to have murdered. You may recall that when she first made the claim I challenged her to name names, and she refused to do so.

    THE DAY THE BIRTHERS DIED
    (LAMENT OF A BIRTHER PROFITEER)

    (Slow and reverent, fond reminiscing)

    A long, long time ago, I can still remember when the Birthers use to make me smile.

    And I knew if I had the chance, to profit from Birthers while they rant, that may be I’d be happy for a while.

    2008, had made them shiver, when election results they were delivered. It was bad news on their door steps, which made them cry “what in the heck?”

    I can’t remember if I cried, when their delusions of victory began to subside, but something touched me deep inside, the day the Birther’s died.

    So bye, bye Birther pie in the sky. Boy Hawaii sure was great till those donations went dry. Now us good ole boys are all caught up in our lies but we hope they still believe that we tried,

    Yes, we hope they still believe that we tried.
    (Up tempo, remembering the good ole days)

    Did you read, all the books we sold, you know this Birther stuff is worth its weight in gold, but we’ll never tell you so.
    We said if you believe in Vattell of old then Donald Trump can save your Birther souls, while the posse, lead them on and on real slow.

    We said Hawaii’s in cahoots with him, and when more money was sent we began to grin,
    then we all kicked off our shoes, on white sand beaches in those waters of blue.

    Back home I still was making lots of bucks, I sold impeach Obama stickers for their pickup trucks, but I knew that it had all gone bust, the day the Birthers died.

    I started singing, bye, bye Birther pie in the sky. Boy Hawaii sure was great till those donations went dry. Now us good ole boys are all caught up in our lies but we hope they still believe that we tried.

    Yes, we hope they still believe that we tried.

    Now, for six years we’d been on their own but with Sheriff Joe on board we thought we’d really grown but, that’s not how it was to be.

    Then Orly spoke to the court in words, from a brief she coppied from Philip Berg, in a voice that never went to court for free.

    Oh and how the Birthers began to frown, when for the second time Obama took the crown. All the court rooms were adjourned. Case dismissed was what was returned.

    And although Orly never hit the Mark, I still made lots of cash at birther rally parks, while Carl Gallups kept them in the dark till the day the Bithers died

    And we were singing,

    bye, bye Birther pie in the sky. Boy Hawaii sure was great till the donations went dry. Now us good ole boys are all caught up in our lies but we hope they still believe that we tried.
    Yes, we hope they still believe that we tried.

    Helter skelter in a summer swelter. We swore by March we’d have it all together. Nine months soon and coming fast.

    We swore for years Obama’d never last, but that thing in March just never came to pass, so the Birthers got defensive, and then crass.

    They said, the only reason we can’t have Cruz, is cause the whole thing has been rigged by Jews. Then they tried to take it back, oh but they never got the chance.

    Cause when the Birthers tried to make it real, the Congress all refused to yield, I guess
    them VIPs just up and quit the deal, the day the Birthers died.
    While we were singing –

    bye, bye Birther pie in the sky. Boy Hawaii sure was great till those donations went dry. Now us good ole boys are all caught up in our lies but we hope they still believe that we tried.

    Yes, we hope they still believe that we tried.
    Well the Birthers could never stay in one place, so they paid us to file lawsuits in every state, and when we lost they’d pay again.

    Some lawyers are nimble and some are quick but all lawyers just jump over them candle sticks, cause money is a lawyers only friend.

    Klayman turned the court room into a stage, where he quoted Vatell with clenched fists in rage.
    But no lawyer born in Hell, Could break Obama’s spell.

    And as Obama’s poll numbers began to rise and celebrations ran all though the nite, I saw Obots laughing with delight the day the Birthers died.

    But I was singing –

    bye, bye Birther pie in the sky. Boy Hawaii sure was great till the donations went dry. Now us good ole boys are all caught up in our lies but we hope they still believe that we tried.
    Yes, we hope they still believe that we tried.

    (slow and reverent, sad now because my Impeach Obama sticker sales have just about tanked)

    I met a girl named Sharon Rondue, and I asked her for some happy news, but she just smiled and turned away.

    So I went down to the Birther Report, where I’d laughed at Birthers years before, but the man there said that Obots couldn’t play.

    And in the streets the Birthers screamed, gay marriage is legal the courts have deemed, but not a word was spoken, their spirits now were broken.

    And the three men I admired most, Apairo, Zullo and the Gallups show host, they took the last train for the coast, the day the Birthers died.

    But I was singing –

    bye, bye Birther pie in the sky. Boy Hawaii sure was great till the donations went dry. Now us good ole boys are all caught up in our lies but we hope they still believe that we tried.

    Yes, we hope they still believe that we tried.

    Some Donald Trump Voters Warn of Revolution if Hillary Clinton Wins

    Jared Halbrook, 25, of Green Bay, Wis., said that if Mr. Trump lost to Hillary Clinton, which he worried would happen through a stolen election, it could lead to “another Revolutionary War.”

    “People are going to march on the capitols,” said Mr. Halbrook, who works at a call center. “They’re going to do whatever needs to be done to get her out of office, because she does not belong there.”

    “If push comes to shove,” he added, and Mrs. Clinton “has to go by any means necessary, it will be done.”

    “I’m more of a peaceful person. But I do think there will be a large amount of people that are terribly upset and may take matters into their own hands.”…Mr. Swick considers himself a “Bible Christian”…Mr. Swick, by his own estimation, also owns “north of 30 guns,”…“I hope to God I never have to fire a round, but I won’t hesitate to. As a Christian, I want reformation. But sometimes reformation comes through bloodshed.

    This is going to embolden them:

    Jurors found brothers Ammon and Ryan Bundy and five others not guilty of conspiring to impede federal workers from their jobs at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. Some of the defendants also were charged with possession of firearms at a federal facility and were acquitted on that count as well.

    An attorney for the leader of the occupation at an Oregon wildlife refuge has been hit by a stun gun multiple times and tackled by federal authorities in a courtroom after his client was acquitted.

    Ammon Bundy’s defense lawyer Marcus Mumford demanded his client be released immediately after Bundy and six others were found not guilty Thursday. Mumford kept yelling at the judge and wouldn’t calm down, so U.S. marshals used their stun guns on the attorney and then wrestled him to the floor.

    Another Bundy lawyer, Morgan Philpot, says Mumford has been arrested. The judge told Mumford that Bundy would be held because he’s also facing charges in Nevada stemming from a 2014 standoff at his father Cliven Bundy’s ranch.

    I don’t know if any of you saw the piece that Rachel Maddow did on a Republican attempt to intimidate voters in New Jersey 30 years ago and the consent decree that they are under that prevents them from challenging voters. If not, it’s worth giving a look. The article is here:

    http://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-show/trumps-poll-watching-scheme-creates-legal-fight-rnc

    I’m a poll manager and while I do not work in a minority district, I have been reading up on state statutes regarding the orderly conduct of elections and what poll managers can do.

    A person cannot bring a concealable weapon into a polling place on election day (so no pistols, although assault rifles are OK). Also poll watchers must be certified in writing by the candidates/parties they represent. Also, anyone who challenges a voter must be a registered voter themself. We can also move anyone bothering people to a distance of 200 ft from the polling place.

    misha: The Oregon acquittal will embolden them. It’s going to start within 48 hours after Trump loses, makes a speech about a rigged election and refuses to concede.

    “Rote told Iowa Public Radio that she cast her first ballot for Trump but feared it would be changed to a vote for Hillary Clinton.

    “The polls are rigged,” Rote told the radio station.”

    Doc, et al.: Have you seen this video from This American Life? It’s the best thing I’ve seen this election season. Every word speaks my heart and thoughts; made me cry.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hI8TCA3fJcs
    This American Life asked Sara Bareilles (Broadway’s “Waitress”) to imagine what President Obama might be thinking about the current election and Donald Trump, but can’t say publicly. Leslie Odom, Jr., performs the song.

    Dr. Conspiracy:
    By the way, Birther Report STILL hasn’t fixed its DNS server list.

    If he hasn’t outright abandoned the site, he either A) Doesn’t know how to fix it, or B) Realizes that its all over, and there’s not point in maintaining the site.
