Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses, except Michael Shrimpton

Christopher Earl Strunk has a lawsuit in progress, at which he would like Michael Shrimpton to testify. The whole convoluted business can be found in a new lawsuit against the Department of State mostly (plus some others).

According to the complaint in an “Intent to file” motion in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia (1:2014cv00995), Strunk sent Michael Shrimpton a round-trip plane ticket for the US so that he might testify for Strunk, but when Shrimpton applied for a visa to visit the US, it was denied. This suit wants that denial reversed. Of course, every visa denial comes with a reason, and in this case it was because Shrimpton was not able to convince the US Consul in London that if the US let Shrimpton in, that he would return home when the visa period ended. Someone seeking a non-immigrant visa to the US has to show significant ties to their home community.

imageThe short paragraph preceding probably does not convey every nuance of the 132-page filing, and the interested reader can supplement my summary with the original complaint linked above; however, readers may want to consider first donning a pair of Joo Janta 200 Super-Chromatic Peril Sensitive sunglasses. Also one may reference the Department of State discussion of Section 214(b) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, under which Shrimpton’s visa was denied. It is possible that the US Consul was concerned that Shrimpton had been convicted of sex-related criminal misdemeanor charges which Shrimpton is currently appealing, as well as pending criminal charges that he falsely notified the British government of an impending nuclear terrorist attack in 2012.

The Shrimpton testimony seems dubious at best. Continue Reading →

Shark sucker

When I was a kid I had the Golden Book: The Sea. I dearly loved that little book, and one of the neat things I learned about was a fish called the remora, or “shark sucker.”1 The remora attaches itself to a shark and the much larger shark carries the little fish around with it.

The remora metaphor came to mind when I heard of the most recent example of a birther trying to attach himself to a bigger story. The remora is “self-proclaimed intelligence expert” (Jerome Corsi’s words) Michael Shrimpton and the shark/big fish is Edward Snowden. Snowden was an international news sensation after leaking NSA secrets to the press. Of course what Snowden hasn’t released is a black box to the public, and a black box could contain anything, so birther Shrimpton uses it to add credibility to his own incredible story. You can read that story at WorldNetDaily in an article by Jerome Corsi. Corsi wrote:

In conversations with WND, nevertheless, Shrimpton doubled down on the claims he made in 2008 by asserting that NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, as part of his negotiations to leave Hong Kong, agreed to deliver to Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow the classified U.S. military intelligence file on Obama’s DNA.

How an NSA guy was able to purloin military intelligence files is a question worth asking, right after one asks how Shrimpton knows Putin’s secrets.

In all fairness to Corsi, he is not overly sympathetic to Shrimpton, writing among other things:

Government intelligence experts on both sides of the Atlantic marginalized Shrimpton as a loud-mouthed nuisance and gadfly who lacks professional credentials as an intelligence expert.

Shrimpton has his own legal problems, having been charged with making a false report to police of a terrorist plot in 2012.

When I interviewed Snowden while I was in Moscow in 2013, I asked him about any intelligence regarding Obama. Snowden told that he only had access to secrets involving NSA surveillance.2

2Just fooling,

This is the way March ends

not with a bang but a whimper

Weather lore says that March comes in like a like a lion and goes out like a lamb. Applied to birtherism, March came in with bluster and high expectations of the great denouement of the “O-bots,” the shattering of their universe. Here on the last day of March, let’s take stock of the month:

  • Orly Taitz endorsed by Pastor Manning, only to find herself joined at the hip with his homophobic street sign
  • Tea Party Nation repudiates Taitz claim of endorsement
  • CalGuns repudiates Taitz claim of endorsement
  • Michael Shrimpton video gets no traction
  • FBI evidence of theft by threat, witness tampering and felony obstruction of justice by Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office reported
  • Former Cold Case Posse member Brian Reilly describes unprofessionalism within the Cold Case Posse
  • Congressmen Labrador and Huelskamp express disinterest in Sheriff Joe investigation
  • Doug Vogt’s mysterious “friendly judge” does not come through
  • McInnish appeal denied by Alabama Supreme Court (7 – 2)
  • Larry Klayman faces Bar disciplinary action in DC
  • Birther Walter Fitzpatrick III jailed
  • Birther Lucas Daniel Smith reportedly jailed in the Dominican Republic
  • More delays in Taitz’ Mississippi lawsuit, strengthening Defense case for sanctions
  • Supreme Court declines to hear Robert Laity appeal.
  • Birther Report doesn’t go live with its new super secure server
  • No announcement from the Maricopa County Sheriff’s office about an Obama investigation
  • No press conference, charges, investigative reports, or anything else of substance from Mike Zullo and the Cold Case Posse
  • Dow Jones Industrial Average up 136 points for the month of March
  • Universe pretty much the same

Check out my 2009 poem, “We are the Birthers.”

Now, let’s play the birther theme song!

The Post & Email Will Not Air Michael Shrimpton Interview

Heavens to Zullo1, what is going on? There I was, all set for the new Michael Shrimpton interview with The Post & Email and Birther Report as the detonating introduction to March Universe Shattering™ month, and now they say it won’t happen?

Birther Report published a string of articles about an old Shrimpton talk from 2008, uploaded to YouTube in 2012, recently discovered, forwarded to Carl Gallups, and featured at BR. Then BR reported that they had contacted Shrimpton, interviewed him, and that the audio recording would be released shortly. Frankly, I was impressed that BR was finally going to get some original content, bless their black birther hearts.

I had published the introductory article, but it was not to be. Sharon Rondeau, editor of the Post & Email wrote today:

(Mar. 9, 2014) — The Post & Email has decided not to air any portions of the interview conducted with Barrister Michael Shrimpton on Friday evening as announced on Saturday morning.

We are also confirming that no “fundraising” has been done by The Post & Email as a result of speaking or communicating with Shrimpton, nor have we benefited financially in any way from those contacts. The original story announcing the interview has been removed so that there is no question that any financial gain has been realized by The Post & Email from having conducted the interview.

Reading between the lines, I’m thinking that Shrimpton wanted money. It wouldn’t be the first time.

OR NOT

Stunning: The Return of the Shrimpton

In a stunning move, Birther Report is publishing some original material. They in conjunction with The Post & Email conducted an interview via Skype™ with Michael Shrimpton Friday, a British Barrister with some specialization in national security matters. Shrimpton reportedly told BR that Barack Obama’s “not a U.S. Citizen.”

We’ll just have to wait for the promised audio to find out why he thinks that.

There has been some speculation as to the timing of the recent release of the old Shrimpton video and whether it had anything to do with Zullo’s promised “March reveal.” There is a connection of some kind. According to a comment at Birther Report, Carl Gallups was the conduit connecting the person who found the tape with Birther Report who published it:

Gaia Militia: It isnt that much of a story…Ive been researching the German involvement in the European Union & the New World Order, I was listening to WW2 Codebreaker Dr Harry Beckhough in a playlist…the next video that came on was Shrimpton…who has never let me down yet…so I let it play…all of a sudden, I heard the name Obama mentioned and Kenya…it brought a big smile to my face, and I thought of America straight away…so I cut out the Obama parts, stuck them together and uploaded…I contact Carl Gallups straight away as I knew he was the person who would get this video where it needed to go.

CIA, Secret Service: guarding Obama’s DNA

Really

ObamaDNAWe’ve had a titter over the old Michael Shrimpton video making the birther rounds, about how the CIA collected Barack Obama’s DNA back in 2007 and compared it to his relatives, and found they weren’t related. Why would the CIA do such a thing?

Well, according to a 2012 article in The Atlantic, “Hacking the President’s DNA,” snagging DNA is exactly what the CIA does to world leaders (and we thought we were just listening to their phone calls). Why? Here’s the rationale according to authors Hessel, Goodman and Kotler:

The U.S. government is surreptitiously collecting the DNA of world leaders, and is reportedly protecting that of Barack Obama. Decoded, these genetic blueprints could provide compromising information. In the not-too-distant future, they may provide something more as well—the basis for the creation of personalized bioweapons that could take down a president and leave no trace.

Michael Shrimpton described in his video how very easy it would be to harvest Obama’s DNA from a drinking glass, and that might have been true in 2007, but perhaps not today:

According to Ronald Kessler, the author of the 2009 book In the President’s Secret Service, Navy stewards gather bedsheets, drinking glasses, and other objects the president has touched—they are later sanitized or destroyed—in an effort to keep would‑be malefactors from obtaining his genetic material.
