Operation “flood it”

Birthers are mounting Operation “flood it,” a campaign to flood Glen [sic] Beck and Fox News with telephone calls today (January 4, 2010) demanding to know why there is no coverage of the pending lawsuits against Barack Obama and why the lawyers and plaintiffs have never appeared on Fox News to discuss their cases.

Hint: “Crank Sues President” is not news.

However, it’s really not true that Fox News has been ignoring the birther phenomenon. Recall my article:

Fox News owes Orly Taitz equal time


More information on Operation Flood It from the Washington Independent:

Pastor Manning’s ATLAH Worldwide church off the anti-Obama is pushing it, as well as an Operation Special Prosecutor group at Facebook. I learned about it from anti-Obama plaintiff Cort Wrotnowski.

    it ain’t easy bein’ a birfer. maestro, cue the violins:

    beck’s dismissal of the birthers today was disappointing. he just mocked. he didn’t address the salient points of the argument.

    for example, he said oh SOMEHOW, they got a birth announcement in the hawaii paper, somehow KNOWING they were going to sneak in a president 40 years later. . .

    of course that has not been alleged. the habit of posting birth announcements in the hawaii paper did not require any presidential aspirations or conspiracy. no one ever said it did. as we all know, anyone can place a notice, for any reason, with no proof. i don’t think obama’s mom was planning to run him for president. i don’t think anyone who questions his citizenship does.

    so beck ignored the real arguments, rather than simply disagreeing with them. he also took the cowardly way out of making fun of the birthers, rather than the more mature way of explaining factually why he disagrees with them.

    i am very disappointed in him. his character was shown to be very poor today.

    that was curte!

  3. Rickey says:

    Over on Facebook, Orly’s followers have added Glenn Beck to their list of traitors.

  4. aarrgghh: [quoting] he [Beck] didn’t address the salient points of the argument.

    I’ve been doing this for a year a and a half, and I have yet to find a salient point.

  5. A protest is scheduled for today, January 5:

    There is a protest scheduled for Himes Town Hall Meeting Tuesday night in Stamford, CT at UCONN auditorium 1 University place (corner of Washington Blvd and Broad St) protest is at 6:15 PM meeting is at 7-8:30 PM. Please come if you can, and bring a sign.

    An even more funny post from FR….

    “A great idea. Beck does not pretend to be an authority on anything. More power to him. Host a debate. The Beck frontispiece and closing graphic have pictures of the founders. Have these founders expound on citizenship. Argue with Story, Hamilton, Jay, Washington, Kent, Marshall, Waite.
    A panel could wear masks, and be prepared with the words of a justice. Have Ann Coulter argue for Obama, against all the founders. Boy would that get ratings, but might be uncomfortable for Ann, whom I generally respect. I’ll bet there are many in academia and the profession sitting on the sidelines who now, seeing the Obama credit line dwindle, might lend their knowledge and reputations to support the Constitution.

    Instead of “Where is the birth certificate” the road signs should have read “Born in the country to parents who are its citizens?”

    The Kerchner case is wending its way toward the supreme court. The Chrysler Dealer cases have been initiated. To preserve our freedoms, the public should understand the issues being raised. They are obscure, but as we see the concrete danger of a U.S. Army officer whose allegiance was never consistent with our constitutional protections, a Muslim before a citizen, as Obama said of himself in his first book, more citizens are likely to understand why Washington and Jay decided to require natural born citizenship as a qualification to being president.

    We have all seen the travesty of auto dealer’s survival becoming dependent upon their political contributions. Those cases are now being prosecuted, by Donofrio and Pidgeon. That is connected to the illegitimacy of Obama’s presidency because without respect for adherence to the constitution, those cases will be settled the Chicago way, or the Soros way.

    Appuzo, arguing for the constitution, a small time patriot, would fit the Beck appeal to traditional values. I think Appuzo could handle a slick government attorney because he has truth on his side, is seasoned enough to resist the distractions, and, unlike many attorneys, has had the chance to become really expert. You know Anita Dunn’s husband has a world-class team following the Kerchner/Apuzzo case.

    Have Appuzo or Donofrio defend the founders. It might not be a funny show, but Beck presented a serious special on eugenics. How about a serious special on citizenship? Goodness know, it is a serious issue.

    I fully agree that the concealment of all legal documents is insufferable. But there don’t appear to be statutes – yet – requiring that we know more than the media wanted to present about a presidential candidate. Only two states even required a written certification by the party of a candidate’s eligibility, and that battle appears stymied. So let’s be disciplined and focus on what we know, because the candidate told us, about Obama’s qualifications. A British Kenyan father absolutely disqualifies Obama from being president. His authority is moot.”

    Even Mario’s admirers think he’s small time.

  8. milspec says:

    You know you have hit bottom when even Beck thinks your nuts.

  9. G says:

    Sounds like the birther’s whole gambit is trying to repeat a lie often enough in hopes that people will fall for it. That is all they have left…and really, that is all they ever had.

  10. John says:

    Forget about “Operation: Flood It!” “Operation: Mark Your Money Bills!” needs to go forward:

    MARK YOUR MONEY BILLS!. Mark your $1, $5, $10, $20, $50 and $100 bills with “Obama! Show Your Birth Certificate!” or a similar tagline. Once everyone starts do it, nothing will be able to stop it. In about 2 or 3 months when millions and millions of “birther” bills are circulating across the country from Honolulu to Bangor, MN, it will be virtually impossible for the media to ignore the issue any longer. Once that happens, Obama will be finished.

    The Mark Your Money Bills Campaign is a brilliant one. One of the fundamental problems we have had with the birther issue is the difficulty and failure of the MSM to report on it. We must FORCE them to report on the Birther Issue. The Mark Your Money Bills Campaign is unavoidable and unstoppable solution to this problem. The only real problem with it is getting EVERYONE who is concerned about this issue to do it. This plan is like a chain letter but is better since all money bills are independent of each other. People merely have to mark their money bills and circulate them. When thousands of people or perhaps millions of people start to join in the effort, no one will be able to stop it. The real power of this campaign is getting it viral so people will do it.

  11. John says:

    Imagine what will happen when all of Glenn Beck’s money bills are saying “Obama! Show Your Birth Certificate!” In fact this plan is so brilliant, the birther issue can be pushed 24/7 365 days anywhere across the country and around the world. Every time someone pays with something with cash, they will unable to ignore the birther issue. Like I said, once the Mark Your Money Bills Campaign is started, no one has the power to stop it.

  12. Rickey says:

    If that’s your idea of a brilliant campaign, I hate to think of what the discarded ideas must look like.

  13. misha says:

    Imagine what will happen when Glenn Beck finally addresses the internet rumor that he raped and murdered a girl in 1990, and that a commenter named John may have helped him.

  14. John, you seem to have the mistaken idea that the birth certificate issue lacks popular recognition. When “birther” is a runner up for word of the year and an Obama conspiracy theory makes Time Magazine’s top 10 lies list, you have recognition. What you lack is evidence, logic, and credibility. No amount of marked bills will create that.

  15. Scientist says:

    Rickey: If that’s your idea of a brilliant campaign, I hate to think of what the discarded ideas must look like.


  16. John says:

    All the evidence is sealed.

  17. Benji Franklin says:

    Dear John,
    The “Operation: Mark Your Money Bills!” campaign is nothing but the birthers’ failed “Operation: Mark Your Used Condoms!” campaign, without the aftertaste.

    Benji Franklin

  18. John says:

    Yes, the evidence is sealed and Obama won’t release it.

    1. The COLB – Since we do not know the deritive of the COLB, it is meaningless.

    2. Obama’s school records. DO they really list him as foriegner?

    3. Obama’s Passport – What do Obama’s previous passports show…foreign citizenship? What did the cop that was killed with info on Obama’s passports know? Why was the cop killed and did the Obama administration have a hand in it?

    There are also dozens and dozens of more questions that need answering.

    But since the evidence is sealed and no one will cooporate, we are left with a lot of speculation.

  19. John says:

    The Mark Your Money Bills Campaign could cause a real mess. Are Obots now going to starting burning their hard earned “Birther” Bills instead of spending them and create and undending and unstoppable contraversey?

  20. Bovril says:

    John: The Mark Your Money Bills Campaign could cause a real mess.Are Obots now going to starting burning their hard earned “Birther” Bills instead of spending them and create and undending and unstoppable contraversey?

    John you really are a muppet…..

    Actually please feel free and could you sign it as well as a proud patriot…

    United States Code
    § 333. Mutilation of national bank obligations

    ?Whoever mutilates, cuts, defaces, disfigures, or perforates, or
    unites or cements together, or does any other thing to any bank bill,
    draft, note, or other evidence of debt issued by any national banking
    association, or Federal Reserve bank, or the Federal Reserve System,
    with intent to render such bank bill, draft, note, or other evidence
    of debt unfit to be reissued, shall be fined under this title or
    imprisoned not more than six months, or both.

  21. John says:

    Whoever said you wanted to mutilate or deface a bill. You definitely don’t want to that. You definitely want keep the bills in circulation. Therfore, you have make sure your marks don’t destroy the credibility of the bill. The point is not to deface, mutilate, or destroy. The point to purpretuate the issue. Since money bills travel all over the country from one person to another, the issue can be driven 24/7 365 from Honolulu to Bangor to Fairbanks to Keywest.

  22. Scientist says:

    John: The point to purpretuate the issue.

    Why? The issue became irrelevant a year ago when Congress certified the election.

    It would be reason not to leave home without your American Express, though.

  23. NBC says:

    That is somewhat misleading. All the information is protected by state and federal privacy laws. In spite of this, President Obama released his official birth certificate, the Hawaiian COLB, which is the only document the State of Hawaii presently provides.

    The end…

  24. NBC says:

    1. The COLB – Since we do not know the deritive of the COLB, it is meaningless.

    It is prima facie evidence and shows Obama born on US.

    While you insist that there exist unanswered questions, the most important one has been answered, the rest is just spiteful speculations

  25. SFJeff says:

    Brilliant campaign. I am personally all for it! I can imagine the two or three hundred hard core birthers sitting around chucking as they handwrite their mantra on bills and then go to spend them.

    And the silence will be deafening. Really- push this campaign and I will bet you 5 umarked dollars that I never, ever get one of your bills, nor that anyone I know gets one.

    And if someone offered one to me, I would return it to the bank for a nice crisp one, and they would cycle the bill out to be destroyed.

    But please, encourage the Birthers to join in this movement. I would prefer them at home armed with Sharpies rather than rallying in Washington with loaded weapons.

  26. Rickey says:

    I tell you what, John. For the next month I will scrupulously examine each bill I handle and will keep a running tally on how many of them have been marked by birthers. Check back in 30 days and we’ll see how well your brilliant idea has caught on.

  27. SFJeff says:


    I think you must not have grown up in the United States. Here we are governed by the rule of law, and the accuser is responsible for providing proof.

    You and Birthers seem to feel you are entitled to fish through any and all of President Obama’s documents to find the proof that you feel must be there. Thats not how it works here.

    I couldn’t successfully sue you and tell the judge that I wanted discovery on all your personal and financial records simply because I felt you may have defrauded me. Thats not how our system works. Maybe its different where you came from, but here, the accused does not have the responsibility to proof his case, the accuser does.

    So stop accusing and start proving.

  28. Scientist says:

    It won’t work. The birthers have already sent all their money to Orly’s PayPal account.

  29. Black Lion says:

    Jeff, it is because the birthers think that they are larger than they really are. It wouldn’t even be 300 of them…You would get about 50 hard core birthers that would actually do what John suggested.

  30. Black Lion says:

    The so called “Obots” would be laughing at you. Especially since most people used credit cards and debit cards for commerce now. And how many people actually look at the cash the receive other than to see what denomination it is? Not many. Sorry John, this idea was pushed by the birthers months ago. I remember seeing it on Orly’s site from someone. It didn’t take hold then and won’t now.

  31. Black Lion says:

    Jeff, when have the birthers ever relied on proof? Their entire argument is based on speculation and innuendo. Not one piece of legally admissible evidence has ever been produced. Why do you think that everyone is laughing at them. They are the only ones that are too dense to realize it.

  32. JoZeppy says:

    You keep marking those bills…I have a sneaking suspicion none of us will ever see one. You see, there already is something like that going on called “wheres George.” Its a currency tracking website, where you enter your bills’ serial numbers, mark the bill with “wheresgeorge.com” and spend it. Around 60,000 bills are marked every day by users. Over 150 million bills have been marked and entered into their site. When was the last time you’ve seen one in circulation (on average I see one a year, and I’m actually looking)? This might have to do with the fact that the bill entered represent less than .1% of the bills in circulation. The US Government prints 30 million new bills a day. How many “birther bills” do you think are getting marked every day? I doubt you’re even coming close to 60k bills a day. Even if I did burn every “birther bill” I came across, I get the feeling it would be on par with the amount of money I lose in the seat cushins of my sofa.

  33. aarrgghh says:

    john, as usual, thinking small:

    The Mark Your Money Bills Campaign could cause a real mess. Are Obots now going to starting burning their hard earned “Birther” Bills instead of spending them and create and undending and unstoppable contraversey?

    oh please — no one will ever take birfers seriously as long as they keep thinking like small-time kindergarten peons. this is a constitutional crisis of biblical proportions, ferchissakes! don’t you think it’s time to man up, folks?!

    forget dollar bills — imagine the if birfers everywhere got branding irons and seared into their faces “this birftoon don’t run” or some equally bold and inscrutable yet exquisitely usurper-baiting message.

    with every birfer in the country proudly brandishing this revolutionary slogan and roiling the stomachs of no-longer-sleepy citizens at offices and shopping malls and post offices and on buses and trains and planes everywhere, i seriously doubt obama could last thirty days in office.

    enough with the rinky-dink stunts and frat-boy pranks — they’ve gotten birfers nowhere in a year and a half and the usurper’s laughing while he destroys the country. it’s time for true patriots to stand up, heat up those irons and start seriously spoiling people’s lunches.

  34. misha says:

    I think they should tattoo on their foreheads “Obama is a fraud.” That will get them a lot of attention, like Mike Tyson’s has.

    I also think the anti-Obama people should block traffic on interstates, like the truckers did several years ago.

    Anything else shows them to be rank amateurs.

  35. I saw a “where’s the birth certificate?” marked bill a month or so ago, but that’s because my friend who marks them showed it to me. He believed he was the only one marking them.

  36. John: Yes, the evidence is sealed and Obama won’t release it.

    Now wait a minute. If all the evidence is sealed, then there is no evidence available to you, John. What does that make you? Prejudiced.

  37. Hell Toupee says:

    I find it hilarious how the reactionaries, being unable to come up with original schemes, constantly rip off stunts from the left-wing handbook. “Union Bucks” and “Gay Dollars” have been circulating in the US for years, but I bet most people have never seen a bill stamped with either of those slogans. Which should tell you how little exposure your birther bill sloganeering will achieve.

    I’m wondering, John, what with you guys getting into teabagging and calling for a national strike: are you all gay union activists, or do you just really, really look up to them? What with your copying them and all.

  38. misha says:

    I have seen exactly TWO bills marked “where’s George” in the past 10 years. I got one on the interstate, and one in Glen Burnie. I’ve never seen any in Philly.

    It’s a great success.

  39. Little Dreamer says:

    Not that I ever expect to get one of these defaced dollar bills in my own hand, but if I did, what’s to stop me from adding “crazy lunatic, laugh & disregard” on it?

  42. Black Lion says:

    It looks like our buddy Pidgeon was not too happy about Beck’s comments….Here is his response…Take note of all of the incorrect information that is contained in his so called letter….And the birthers wonder why they are being made fun of?

    Dear Mr. Beck:

    You are ill-informed on the “birther” issue. Barack Obama, by his own admission, was a British subject at birth. He has never denied having a Kenyan father, who himself was a British subject as a Kenyan native. This is easly established under the British Nationality Act of 1948. He is therefore disqualified to run for the office of the President, because the office is not available to subjects of other governments. The issue is very simple, and very obvious. Obama himself admitted that he wasn’t a natural born citizen when he debated Alan Keyes in 2004.

    Let’s see you deal with this one. There is nothing “nutty” about it, and it doesn’t depend on whether his maternal grandmother tried to cover up a foreign birth in Hawaii by placing newspaper notices. It is as plain as your face. BHO is a foreign national first, and an American secondarily, if at all. That is why he thinks there are 57 states; why he doesn’t understand the constitution; why he wants to give us Britain’s health care system (it’s all in the teeth, don’t you know); why he thinks Interpol should have greater authority in the US than US law enforcement; etc. He is a British subject and has no business holding the office of POTUS.

    If you think you can overlook this constitutional crisis as not part of the Rubicon, you are mistaken. One constitutional overlook breeds another and the next thing you know, the financial industry is nationalized, the auto industry is nationalized, the health care industry is about to be nationalized, and the energy industry will soon be nationalized.

    Ultimately, it is all going to be okay, because socialism only lasts until other people’s money (OPM) runs out, and binge spender BHO has spent all the money we have and all the money we will ever have for the next several generations. He spent all of this before he got his socialist healthcare on the table. He and his wife have partied like Eddie Murphy in The Distinguished Gentleman (1992) since taking office, while he has busied himself with overthrowing the constitutional republic, establishing a new Islamic empire worldwide, disarming and crippling America, and unilaterally dividing Israel and Jerusalem. The only budget constraint for Obama is ink and paper (and he is working his way around that) and his foreign policy advisor appears to be “mirror, mirror on the wall”. He has bankrupted the nation, which the sleeping Oprah watchers are now discovering for the very first time. The reality of the bankruptcy will hit home with gusto in 2010. Not only will we suffer with 30% unemployment, a complete collapse of real estate, and a complete collapse of the dollar, we will also suffer the slings and arrows of dramatic military defeats, as we let this foreigner steer the ship of state. Most Americans have no idea how bad it is going to get.

    As for Obama: he will be one of history’s most reviled figures – on a par with Nero – as a fool who couldn’t even understand that when he denigrated the United States, he was destroying the very state upon which his safety and his legacy depended. He will suffer dramatic defeat in Afghanistan and Iraq – it will not be like Viet Nam, and his name will be tarred with it. It will be more like the disastrous defeat of Xerxes at Salamis, or the Ottomans at Sisek, or the Moors at Tours; a game changing defeat that will forever cement the destiny of the republic known as the United States of America. Obama will join the other names in history who suffered cataclysmic losses in the lands of Magog.

    His legacy? A communist, collectivist fool, brainwashed by red diaper doper babies haunting the halls of ivy league academia whose agenda was to bring back the failed Bolshevik revolution worldwide, who brought his fully bloomed ignorance to power illegally in the US because of the needs of his narcissistic ego, whose illegitimacy caused the US to go bankrupt and to suffer its worst military setbacks in the history of the nation in just a few short months. History will marvel at the foolishness of Americans, and historians will wonder how we as a people could have allowed this to happen. Then, of course, historians will ultimately conclude that the demise of the greatest nation the world had ever known happened because the watchdogs whose duty it was to warn Americans of such possibilities – the so-called news media – conspired with foreign powers and global financial criminals to destroy America from the inside, as a result of their cowardice, malevolence and silence.

    Glen Beck: a media persona who simply could not bring himself to utter the truth about Obama – that he is a usurper, holding the presidency illegally and unconstitutionally, because he is without a legal birthright. Let us never forget who shirked their duty to tell the truth in these last hours, and let us not allow history to forget.


  43. jvn says:

    I’m sure the Chrysler dealers who are rumored to have hired Pidgeon and Donofrio will be thrilled to read this crazed rant from their “crack attorney…”


  44. nbc says:

    Remember how Pidgeon announced that he was about to be arrested by homeland security people driving in a black car…

    He and Donofrio are a match made in heaven…

  45. Black Lion says:

    JVN, I think you might have hit upon the real issue, crack. It seems like Pidgeon has been smoking something. He and Leo seem to have a weak grasp on reality. Did you note the amount of misinformation in his so called rant? If this is indictive of what he writes, then I can’t see his case getting far….

  46. SFJeff says:

    “establishing a new Islamic empire worldwide, disarming and crippling America, and unilaterally dividing Israel and Jerusalem”

    I missed those events. I suppose I better blame the MSM.

    Think Stephen Pigeon has much of an agenda here?

  47. Rickey says:

    Apparently the protest fizzled out. The local paper covered the event, but no mention of any protest.


  48. Jez says:

    3. Obama’s Passport – What do Obama’s previous passports show…foreign citizenship? What did the cop that was killed with info on Obama’s passports know? Why was the cop killed and did the Obama administration have a hand in it?

    Well, I would surmise that Obama has had an American passport for quite a few years, considering he would travel back and forth from Indonesia to Hawaii when he was younger (read his book?).

    And what cop are you talking about? Are you talking about Quarrels? He wasn’t a cop. His first name was Lieutenant, it wasn’t a rank. And he was an informant on a Credit Card number / identity theft scheme.

    If you are going to try and connect two unrelated events, at least try to get your info correct.

  49. Hawaiiborn says:

    What these bafoons do not realize is that most of the currency that are defaced or so old they are pulled from circulation and then sent back to the mint to be destroyed. MILLIONS of paper money per day are destroyed as millions are printed to replace them.

    The WheresGeorge campaign shows exactly why marking bills are a stupid way to get your message across. It will simply not reach the people they intend to target.

    In my life, I’ve only received one “wheresgeorge” Marked dollar.

  50. milspec says:

    Me too the entire “wheresgeorge” thing was sort of fun for a week when I had the flu. Then I thought, “whats the point of this” and went back to surfing for porn. lol
