The war on Islam

This title was carefully selected and I hope readers will get the point from what follows.

Barack Obama didn’t release his birth certificate in 2008 to prove he was not born in Kenya; he released it to counter the equally silly claim that his middle name was Mohammed amid stories that he was Muslim. Since that time and up to the present video from Wayne Allyn Root, the claim has been leveled against Barack Obama that he is Muslim and not Christian.

While Obama doesn’t wear his religion on his sleeve, it’s no secret that he attended a Christian church. At an Easter prayer breakfast in 2011 [link to entire remarks]:

I wanted to host this breakfast for a simple reason — because as busy as we are, as many tasks as pile up, during this season, we are reminded that there’s something about the resurrection — something about the resurrection of our savior, Jesus Christ, that puts everything else in perspective

I know about the text because it was quoted by Evangelical Lutheran Church in America presiding bishop Mark Hanson. That, and what accompanied it, did not sound like it came from a Muslim. To Muslims, Jesus was a prophet, not divine. Continue Reading →

Notes from the infectious disease ward

UPDATE: Orly’s site is entirely down now. [5 PM EDT, 2 July 2014]

UPDATE 2: It’s back up.

This the third day since Google again identified OrlyTaitzESQ.com as an attack site, passing on malware to visitors. I take such warnings more seriously than I used to. Here’s a taste of what’s going on at the Taitz web site obtained through the browser on my phone.

Taitz continues to focus on immigration issues with this headline yesterday:

  • Response from Attorney Orly Taitz to Obama’s today’s speech: our immigration system is not broken, the only thing that is broken, is the path of neuron connections in Obama’s brain. Obama did not need to dispatch Biden to Central America to search for the cause of the problem, he had to dispatch himself to the nearest mirror

Taitz is praying for more Republicans to drive drunk in this item about Pete Perry who was quoted on this blog yesterday. The title of the article is:

  • As some of you may be aware by now, Hinds County GOP chair Pete Perry, a man that many believe is behind the shenanigans on June 24, was arrested for speeding and drunk driving this past Saturday night. Here is his mugshot. Hopefully there will be more pics like this in the future! We can only pray!

Wayne Allyn Root says Obama is “100% American”

Photo of Wayne Allyn RootYou may recall that Wayne Allyn Root (vice presidential candidate for the Libertarian Party) caused some stir in the Birther universe when he said that he never met Barack Obama at Columbia University, even though they were both Political Science majors there at the same time. Root’s remarks about his lack of memory of Obama were latched onto by the birthers as evidence that Obama was never a student at Columbia (despite the clear evidence that he graduated from there).

Root, however, in a newly published article at the Obama Ballot Challenge web site, titled “Obama is 100% Red, White & Blue American Born”  says that he has no doubts that Obama was born in the USA and attended Columbia. He attributes not meeting Obama to something else:

Where was he hiding for those Columbia years? My educated guess is he was smoking pot and attending communist meetings, plotting the downfall of America and capitalism. Don’t laugh, it worked!

Root doesn’t claim that Obama was foreign born, but that he pretended to be in order to get into the prestigious Columbia (and probably Occidental and Harvard). Speculation based on no evidence whatever is not what I would label an “educated guess” but then I don’t have a political science degree from a prestigious university like Columbia. Root ignores various newspaper interviews where Obama (at Harvard) talks about being born in Hawaii, putting to lie the idea that he was promoting himself as Kenyan Born to his prospective book publicist.

Root writes:

His college records were his Achilles heel. He had to hide his tracks. His college records had to be sealed forever. Not because he was a foreigner and unqualified to be President, but because he was an American posing as a foreigner. That makes him a fraud unqualified to be President.

Of course, Obama’s college records are only sealed because US law makes education records private for everyone. Obama has never taken any action to seal such records. Root goes on at length to spin a yarn of conspiracy in the article, which the interested reader may read on their own.

Conspiracy theorist, yes, but apparently Wayne Allyn Root is not a birther.
