Leo Donofrio: Natural born conspiracy theorist

I came across Leo C. Donofrio first in connection with his Obama and McCain eligibility lawsuit in New Jersey, Donofrio v. Wells. My short biographical page on him was published in December of 2008; there would be many more articles to follow. Donofrio is known famously, or perhaps infamously, as the inventor of a new meaning for the constitutional term “natural born citizen,” the proposition that US Presidents must be born in the country to two citizen parents.

Donofrio showed a conspiracist bent right from the first with his novel claim that US President Chester A. Arthur conspired to keep his father’s naturalization status  (Irish) a secret by lying about his age and burning his papers just before he died. In truth, his father’s nationality was known, but not widely discussed because that was before Donofrio came up with a theory where it mattered.

In addition to being a lawyer, a professional poker player and rock musician, Donofrio is also a filmmaker working under the pseudonym Jet Wintzer. To his credit is a film titled Towers, about a post apocalyptic world where most people have been destroyed by radiation from cell phone towers. Donofrio plays a survivor named “DJSpectacle” (photo at right by Carlos De Deios © Filminco Productions 2011). Donofrio’s other film credits include Colourfly (2012) and The Art of Forced Collaboration (2013).

Donofrio’s new film,  NASA NOT SOUND, according to its YouTube trailer, promotes the claim that Moon landing video footage from NASA is fake because one can hear sounds allegedly transmitted through the vacuum.

I have never decided in my own mind whether Donofrio believes any of the stuff, or if he is just trying to prove how smart he is by fooling other people.

Birther promotes “SONY hack” conspiracy theory

Nathan Bickel, pastor, Sandy Hook truther, birther, and commenter at the homoerotic fetishism web site Gerbil Report™, runs a blog cum news site called “Moral Matters.” On the site, he touts a video about the recent intrusion into SONY computer systems, reportedly by North Korean government-sponsored hackers. Only the video comes to another conclusion:

“…..It’s so freaking obvious. This is all about the Internet. It’s all about censorship. And it’s all about new draconian legislation – courtesy of this scumbag, this…………that makes up the president of the United States.

School records–key to presidential eligibility

No, I’m serious. It’s in the Constitution:

A person shall be qualified for election to the office of the President if … he has been educated up to at least School Certificate level or its equivalent.

Who knew?

Photo of BuhariThe “Constitution” cited is that of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, a country where there is no small controversy right now about Nigeria’s current opposition party presidential hopeful Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (pictured right).

Sahara Reporters carries the story, linking the Buhari controversy to Barack Obama’s battle with the birthers. Reporter Rudolf Ogoo Okonkwo offers Buhari some advice:

Therefore, it is imperative that Buhari not only finds his certificates1 or their equivalents, but also presents them for the people to see. That’s all that Buhari needs to do to extinguish this distraction.

It may well be that the people in Nigeria are more reasonable folks, and less conspiracy-minded than their cousins in the the United States, but I suspect that people are pretty much the same all over. Presenting the certificate, presuming he has one, may not make a difference.

Getting educational certificates in Nigeria these days is pretty simple. The student purchases a PIN for about $3 at a post office or bank and then uses it to access a national web site where a printable copy of one’s scores can be made. Of course, older persons like Buhari may have to work with “equivalent” documentation.


1I think the School Certificate in Nigeria refers to the Junior Secondary School Certificate, given to those who pass an exam at the end of the 9th grade.

Public Service Announcement: ACA Open Enrollment

I haven’t talked much about the Affordable Care Act (aka ObamaCare) on his blog, but there are certainly any number of conspiracy theories around it, like the one that says everyone is required to have an RFID chip implanted in them.

While Republicans have made the repeal of the Affordable Care Act a high priority, they are having a hard time articulating just what’s wrong with it. Rather than being repealed, the second open enrollment period for enrollment for a health car plan under the exchange started yesterday, November 14, and extends until February 15, 2015.

My understanding is that if you were covered by a healthcare exchange plan in 2014, you will have to re-enroll to maintain your coverage in 2015, but if you want to know for sure, visit HealthCare.gov.

Personally, I was not affected by the Affordable Care Act in any way I could see. I kept my current health plan and doctor.

Obama hacked reporters’ computer?

Star Trek The Next Generation meets Mission Impossible

Former CBS News correspondent Sharyl Attkisson’s computer was hacked, or so she says in a new book “Stonewalled: My Fight for Truth Against the Forces of Obstruction, Intimidation, and Harassment in Obama’s Washington.” She says her phone’s acting funny. Oh, and her TV is on the fritz too. The mysterious government IP guru, “Number One,” found “classified documents deep inside her operating system” possibly put there to frame her. I might expect this story at Western Journalism (which has it) or Fox News (which has it), but I’m reading the Washington Post.

Why the intrusions? Attkisson believes it is the result of her Benghazi reporting. You remember, that scandal where nobody did anything deliberately wrong?

The story reads more like a thriller spy movie than a news story (“Suddenly data in my computer file begins wiping at hyperspeed before my very eyes”). Most of Attkisson’s security expert sources are given pseudonyms, and the one real name she gave won’t comment. It’s a serious accusation, but completely unverifiable at this point.

Obama! Kenya! Tribe! Human Sacrifice!

Shocker. Brian Reilly reveals: in March 2012 Mike Zullo was speaking to a group of influential Christians (plus Reilly and his wife) that he had asked Reilly to assemble. Zullo told them that he had received information that when Obama was in Kenya with his tribe, he attended a human sacrifice.

You can hear the story from Reilly himself at the end of the RC Radio Show, September 24, 2014. Unfortunately the show ended in mid sentence, with the most important question dangling: Did Mike Zullo pick up the check at Denny’s?
