By conspiracy here I do not mean necessarily people acting as part of a unified effort. I’m including people who inexplicably fail to carry out their legal, statutory, ethical or professional responsibilities. I am talking about people who take bribes, cover up and tell public lies.
Update: Quite a few additional items have been added since the original publication of this article, and continue to be added.
According to the Obama denialists the “truth” involves many actors hiding that truth including:
- The United States Army. There are several instances of this, including the allegation that the Army rescinded deployment of Major Cook to keep Obama’s records from coming out (they wouldn’t) and the refusal by the Investigating officer in the Lakin prosecution to allow him to subpoena Obama’s kindergarten records.
- Billionaire George Soros who is secretly pulling the strings behind “all this.”
- Nancy Peolsi, Chairwoman of the Democratic National Convention who signed an affidavit that Obama was eligible.
- The document forgers who forged the COLB and created fake microfilm containing Obama birth announcement in Hawaii newspapers, and their accomplices who have replaced all the copies in all the libraries.
- John McCain, Hillary Clinton and the entire Republican Party who inexplicably failed to raise the eligibility issue during the debates and the campaign.
- White House press secretary Robert Gibbs who keeps reporters from asking probing questions about Obama’s eligibility.
- The FEMA officials who hiding the fact that they are planning to house all the birthers once they are rounded up.
- The CIA. The CIA is covering up the “fact” that Obama worked for them in Afghanistan during the Soviet occupation there, funneling arms to the Taliban (which didn’t exist at at that time).
- Columbia University who conspired with the CIA to create a fake story of a student named Obama attending Columbia, while Obama himself was in the was working in Pakistan/Afghanistan.
- Obama’s African relatives have caved in to pressure and now staunchly deny that the President was born in Kenya.
- Obama’s grandmother, Madelyn Dunham who fraudulently registered his birth in Hawaii. Also the corrupt local registrar in Hawaii who registered Obama’s birth without asking the smallest question to verify it.
- Attorney General Eric Holder for various reasons including refusal to bring a quo warranto action against the President and for cutting deal with Judge Clay D. Land in Georgia to dismiss Orly’s case (he didn’t).
- The US Department of Justice who defends the President against lawsuits instead of prosecuting him.
- The United States Congress who certified Obama’s election even though all of them knew that presidents had to have two citizen parents.
- A long list of federal judges, such as David O. Carter, who have been called traitors.
- Several state courts who have dismissed birther lawsuits and prevented the documents from coming to light, chief of them the Indiana court of appeals (in Ankeny v. Daniels).
- The government of Kenya. An anonymous affidavit filed by Phil Berg says the government of Kenya has classified Obama’s Kenyan birth certificate “top secret” although in the affidavit they seem to talk about this freely.
- The State of Hawaii, Governor Lingle and Department of Health director Chiyome Fukino (who has been called a criminal for not releasing information and a criminal when she does release information) for her gratuitous remark that Barack Obama is a natural born citizen of the United States. Also the legislature of Hawaii for passing a law restricting the ability of birthers to demand the same information over and over.
- The justices and staff of the Supreme Court, who promised to hear Orly’s case, but didn’t and even (according to her) deleted her case from the court’s electronic docket (they didn’t), and also because the Court held a secret meeting with Obama and Biden just before the inauguration where the plan to hide the truth was hatched.
- The Social Security Administration, who failed to prosecute Barack Obama for (as claimed by Orly Taitz) using 39 different social-security numbers.
- The Selective Service System, who in response to a Freedom of Information Act request disclosed Barack Obama’s Selective Service registration form which birthers claim is false.
- The US Department of State for interpreting their regulations that prohibit release of FOIA information on living persons as applicable to President Obama.
- The main stream media (ALL OF IT) who have conspired to keep the eligibility controversy out of the public eye, except as a matter of ridicule. This includes The New York Times, Fox News Network and the rest of the print media and television. CNN is particularly notable because it fired birther sympathizer Lou Dobbs.
- Debra Bowen, Secretary of State of California, sued by Alan Keyes for not keeping Obama off the ballot. Also Governor Daniels of Indiana and 49 other state secretaries of state for the same reason.
- The Electoral College. Some of its members were contacted by birthers and made aware of the allegations of Obama’s ineligibility. They elected him anyway.
- Me. That’s right, your own Dr. Conspiracy has been accused of doing what I do for pay, not out of conviction, both me and anyone else who defends Obama on the Internet. I don’t actually defend Obama, but just debunk conspiracy theories. But out of the 69,000,000 people who voted for Obama in the last election, you would think a handful would be willing to defend Obama on the Internet for free.
- Former CIA director John Brennan was identified as someone involved with forging Obama’s birth certificate.
- Oh and those 69,000,000 million voters must have voted so because of race or they wanted to destroy America or they were communists or terrorist sympathizers.
- And finally Barack Obama himself who has spent millions of dollars (not really) to keep his documents hidden.
Did I leave anybody out?
Letter to Investigating Officer in Lt. Col. Lakin Case
BY REFUSING DISCOVERY TO ARMY OFFICER CHALLENGING OBAMA’S LEGITIMACY, HAS THE ARMY TURNED ITSELF ON THE CITIZENRY?
June 4, 2010
The U.S. Constitution is the oldest, yet shortest, written constitution still in use today. Or has it been suspended for Obama’s usurpation?
Dear Editor: The following letter was sent to the Investigating Officer for the Article 32 hearing scheduled for June 11, 2010, at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center:
Dear LTC Driscoll,
I understand you are the investigating officer in the upcoming trial of LTC Terry Lakin. First of all, you have made a huge strategic error by refusing to allow discovery that would exonerate Lakin in his refusal to take orders from an ineligible commander-in-chief. The whole world now knows that Barack Obama has usurped the presidency and the commander-in-chief position. We have all been made aware for the past 18 months or more that our Constitution requires that the presidency can only be given to a natural born Citizen. Obama does not pass that test with a Kenyan father who passed on his British citizenship and allegiance to his son. Obama was not, and can never be, eligible to hold the office he fraudulently holds. And you, sir, are now complicit in the cover-up by refusing to allow LTC Lakin the discovery that would exonerate him.
I don’t think anyone would argue with your position that “…constitutional jurisprudence allows Congress alone, and not a military judicial body, to put the president’s credentials on trial…” if the president was not also our commander-in-chief. However, the president of the U.S. is also the commander-in-chief of our military forces. You have no excuse, Col. Driscoll, for failing to allow a fellow military member discovery that which would exonerate him. You have taken the road that no officer of integrity would take: the low road, the path of least resistance, the going-along-to-get-along way that only a coward and hater of our Constitution would take. Passing the buck to Congress and abrogating your responsibility to constitutional jurisprudence in this military matter just does not wash and will not go unnoticed by America, or the world, for that matter.
You, sir, also took an oath to support and defend the U.S. Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and you just showed that that oath means nothing to you. No person of integrity would withhold discovery from a defendant who has simply done what he swore to do: to support and defend the Constitution. The Army has lost the respect of all of us who believe in the rule of law and are shocked that it is being denied to defendant Lakin.
I worked with the Army for many years during my federal career and never expected to see this day of disgusting cowardice and miscarriage of justice against a decorated Army officer of sterling credentials and character. LTC Lakin has put his oath, his principles, his career, and his life on the line and deserves to be afforded full discovery of Obama’s credentials. You need to know that LTC Lakin represents millions of us who are absolutely appalled at the conspiracy of silence and cover-up that in which the Army is engaging to carry out this miscarriage of justice. You know the truth. You know Obama is not qualified to serve as the president and commander-in-chief, and it is highly likely that you are aware that Obama has falsified his credentials on many fronts. Misprision of felony would look really ugly on your next ER.
Disgusted with the Army,
Editor’s Note: LTC Driscoll’s contact information is:
Daniel J. Driscoll
Email away Folks!!!
Great plan, James. Remember how Judge Carter loved it when Orly had her minions calling, emailing, and faxing his office. Oh yeah… that was fun.
Great plan, James.
Did you leave anyone out? No matter how many you list, there will always be more.
There’s the whole part about how Fox News is controlled by the Saudis.
Then there’s Google. Almost every website in the world is a birther website, but Google keeps deleting them from the index so it only looks like a few. Google also occasionally alleges that Taitz’s website hosts malware. Taitz has also alleged that George Soros’s nephew sits on the board of directors of Google, so there you go.
So much for supporting the troops.
Actually, as Doc point out above, the citizenry also seems to be part of this conspiracy. This conspiracy is so huge that it actually includes everybody in the country except a couple hundred birthers.
You could also include:
About all of Monroe County TN officials
Probably every elected official of CA (if Orly has not called them a traitor yet, she eventually will)
The Chicago Machine (oddly enough, Daley and Obama spar from time to time)
McHenry County court, Illinois. Along with various election boards.
Ed Whitacre (General Motors – he has not been mentioned yet but he is involved in the communist plot)
Birthers – yes, there tendancy to eat each other leads them to suspect conspiracy among themselves.
As long as Lakin’s legal team doesn’t sanction any communication with Driscoll, that might be great. People should continue to contact him including Obots. I don’t know if Driscoll is really reading the messages being sent to that email but it would be great if he was reading them.
Lakin’s legal team then could file for motion to recuse Driscoll from the hearing because attempts have been made to unfairly influence Driscoll. This would deny Lakin his right to due process and fair trial to have nonbias or influenced officer preciding over his hearing.
It would definitely be worth a shot.
Don’t ya think that Driscoll just might have already thought of this?
As for the FEMA camps, will a few travel trailers be enough to house the birthers? When I used to run a camp, I think my staff was almost larger.
I think you forgot some of the main characters in this play.
George W. Bush
And all of the Republican party.
No, James. It will just annoy him. It won’t sway him at all.
The next OI would simply follow in the footsteps of the ruling by Driscoll which is based on legal precedent.
I am glad though that you have abandoned you position that Lakin’s right to due process or a fair trial has already been violated.
@Kevin Bellas: Thanks. I added it.
You wrote, “Oh and those 69,000,000 million voters must have voted so because of race or they wanted to destroy America or they were communists or terrorist sympathizers.”
I can’t speak for all who voted for Obama, but I voted for him because I was hypnotized! I mean, by the time I got in that polling both I was all, “These aren’t the droids we’re looking for.” Also, I kinda sorta had a crush on Michelle (those arms! swoon!). Also, I think fluoridation softened my brain . . . also, too, the teaching of evolution, and not being able to pray at high school choir concerts, and gay marriage; looking back, I’m pretty sure they impacted my effecting at some time in point. And I was eating a lot of hummus that November–isn’t that from Saudi Australia or something? Oh, and back in the ’90s I dropped a bunch of really bad acid. But this year it’s going to be different! I’m converting to Catholicism and voting the NAMBLA ticket right down the line.
Though Doc C. asked us not to call anyone an idiot, I’m sorry but James is a complete [personal insult deleted, DOC].
James said “I worked with the Army for many years during my federal career”
then you should know that Lakin is a coward and a traitor, every US Marine I know thinks that Lakin is a traitor (though retired, I am a US Marine)
a post by Donna:
My sons are in the military and recently came home with some friends who wear wearing and giving out T-shirts that had a picture of Lakin behind bars and it said “Put Lakin where he belongs – BEHIND BARS!! There’s a huge movement against Lakin by some soldiers who think he’s a traitor, an idiot a moron etc
All the military people I know love this country, they serve proudly to defend us and faithfully follow their orders (unlike Lakin). They don’t look kindly at Lakin shirking his duty. Lakin refusing valid orders causes someone else to fill in for him, that someone else is wearing a T-Shirt showing Lakin behind bars where he belongs. Jame’s delusion and hate of Obama and hate of our country is shameful. If you wish, we can all chip in and send James a one way ticket to Cuba (they think like James does).
LOL – too funny. When I first read your post, I honestly thought you were talking about the Obama Administration and all the latest bribes not to run in the primary, the cover up (lack of transparency), and the WH lying about it.
Then I realized you were talking about the birthers.
WOW – they both have a lot in common, huh?
Thanks for the laugh – needed it today.
Brilliant idea, James. I believe it will play out something like this:
After Driscoll is recused, no current Army officer will be able to fill the position because the Army is part of the conspiracy. Therefore, Stefan Cook will volunteer to go on active duty and become the investigating officer. Of course, no current Army officer will be able to be an unbiased presiding judge, so that job will go to Reverend Manning, who will be sworn in solely for that purpose. Manning will then recruit Walter FitzPatrick, Pamela Barnett, and Connie Rhodes to make up the court-martial panel. Orly will be called to testify, but she will be too busy picking out the drapes for the California Secretary of State’s office. Obama will of course refuse to testify, but Ron Polarik will testify that the COLB is a fake. Lakin will be acquitted, with the panel ruling that no military order is lawful as long as the usurper is in the White House. American soldiers, sailors and marines around the world will lay down their arms and go home.
What could possibly go wrong?
Let me try again, a poster named Donna wrote:
My sons are in the military and recently came home with some friends who wear wearing and giving out T-shirts that had a picture of Lakin behind bars and it said “Put Lakin where he belongs – BEHIND BARS!! There’s a huge movement against Lakin by some soldiers who think he’s a traitor, [redact]. They also have a petition with over 650 doctors and nurses who say they will not work with him and want him imprisoned. I had no idea. He’s not real popular with a lot of the military guys/gals.
I checked with my US Marine buddies (I served as a US Marine), they all in full agreement with Donna. James claimed he worked with the military, I don’t think so, not based on his nasty letter. Birthers and wingnuts hate Military people cheering Obama. At the West Point Graduation, the loud cheers and clapping led Obama to pause while the applause was going on. He looked around the audience during this applause. FOX News showed this clip, but blanked out the sound of the applause, was strange.
doc, nuthin’ — absolutely nuthin’ — happens without a green light from the big boy upstairs:
Remember they prayed that Obama lose the nomination
Remember they prayed for rain at Obama’s accepting the nomination
It was a beautiful day
Remember they prayed for Obama to lose the election
The possibility that God’s on Obama’s side is very high.
LTC Dan Driscoll has served our country with pride, he was a naval aviator and is currently an Army JAG lawyer. He recently said “I feel duty is a word that’s apt. I enjoy contributing and I’m proud to contribute”. Unlike Driscoll, duty is something that Lakin does not appear to honor.
James insults Driscoll, a man of honor, what does that make James.
As a young boy, I could not afford to go to Hawaii to visit my brother’s grave at Punchbowl. At 17 I joined the US Marines, I was assigned to go to Japan, that required a layover in Hawaii (remember, direct non stop flights was not a reality yet). I requested and got an extension on that layover. Punchbowl is an amazing place, I stood over my brothers grave in awe of the hallowed place he sleeps forever with all his brave comrades. Also I have 2 veteran brothers with handicaps from severe wounds, another like me came back safely. So I hope you understand my strong resentment of fake patriots like James. The rants of those like James are an insult to me and my family.
oh yeah. quite vividly, in fact:
“their god: 2, our god: 0”
“Did I leave anybody out?”
Yes. A few:
Lex Luthors. (Just because)
The Mad Thinker (used his science of computers to create convincing fake birth certificates)
The Joker (finds the whole thing hilarious)
Psycho-Pirate (mentors Orly every Tuesday)
The Ringmaster of the Circus of Crime (provided the guaranteed-to-succeed blueprint for the whole birther scheme)
Mr. Mxyzptlk (conjured up magic airplane to fly out of Mombasa)
The Time Trapper (used time travel technology to retroactively cause notices about Obama’s birth to be printed in the local press)
The Puppet Master (controls the minds of everyone on Dr. C’s list)
Gorilla Grodd (back up of the Puppet Master)
The Hate-Monger (provides inspirational speeches at birthers’ rallies)
HYDRA (finances Mario Apuzzo)
Well said. I remember that on my first day of liberty at Pearl Harbor I visited the USS Arizona Memorial in the morning and Punchbowl in the afternoon. That was 41 years ago, but I can see it as clearly as if it were yesterday.
Getting back to the original topic of this blog post (and Dr. C, I think you should append it with the all the valid suggestions added by your readers here, as they are about to get lost in the shuffle as James attempts to derail the conversation onto topics better addressed under other existing blog posts.)
So, here are my additions of who is part of the birther’s “vast conspiracy” to install Obama:
– God himself (per the very timely example that aarrgghh demonstrated above on FreeRepublic.com
– Don’t forget the Bilderbergs, NWO, Masons, Tri-Lateral Commission and other NWO groups that birtrhers are saying are behind this
– Per Manning and several other super-nuts, both Russia and the CIA
-Obama’s parents & grandparents, who per various birthers, were themselves super-spies and communist agents and NWO members
– Frank Marshall Davis
-The Weathermen Underground & William Ayers
– The British Government
– Al-Qaeda & Osama Bin Laden (although how they time traveled to install him from birth before they even created their own organization, I’ll never know. Let alone how they reconcile that with the theories that he was secretly a CIA double agent or whatever…)
– The Book of Revelations, Nostradamus & the Mayans, who in the birtherverse, all “predicted” the rise of Obama as a sign of the impending “end of days”.
– The Chinese, somehow in a plot to devalue our currency and take us over … even though the economic crisis & bailout took place under Obama’s watch.
-George W. Bush, for not declaring Martial Law and suspending the 2008 elections in order to save the US from a “Constitutional Crisis” under an “usurper”.
-Dick Cheney for “too quickly glossing over” the opportunity for congress to object to Obama as President-Elect.
-Every Secretary of State (and really every government official), with special honors to Bowen in CA and Jennifer Brunner in OH
-And whatever additional fictional villains that Sven has dreamed up all on his own, that I haven’t considered even worthy enough of committing to memory
and last, but not least, let’s not forget, for those that seriously believe in this sort of thing:
– The Lizard People
A propos :
From the Arizona Republic: A group of artists has been asked to lighten the faces of children depicted in a giant public mural at a Prescott school. The project’s leader says he was ordered to lighten the skin tone after complaints about the children’s ethnicity.
Wonkette sums it up rather well (as often):
“Maybe it’s time to admit that large chunks of America are in the hands of unreconstructed racists and vulgar ideiots, and that the popular election of a black man as president just might have pushed these furious, economically doomed old white people into a final rage that is going to end very, very badly”
“the popular election of a black man as president just might have pushed these furious, economically doomed old white people into a final rage that is going to end very, very badly”
That is exactly what I am concerned about. Orly, Beck and the rest of their coterie are trying to incite a lone wolf.
And they prayed that his administration fail totally and take America down with it.
You left out smrstrauss.
I’ve been adding these as I find interesting ones. I never expected my list to be so big when I started. I am frankly overwhelmed.
And it may be that the doctor who delivered Barack Obama was one of the heroes of the Pearl Harbor attack, Dr. Rodney T. West.
What about ACORN? Or maybe that’s a different conspiracy. But as far as I can tell, ACORN is (was) like the Illuminati: a vast, shadowy organization that controls everything. Didn’t they steal the election for Obama by election fraud? Didn’t they cause the financial crisis by forcing banks to make bad loans? I presume they did that on purpose, so that Obama would win, and then could use the crisis to set up his socialist dictatorship. Right?
Well, provided we are not talking about patriotic duty, but about moral obligations, there surely must be more people involved in the conspiracy.
I am thinking of the governments of Kenya, Indonesia and even Russia (remember the Perm incident? the present/day Russian ambassador to the US was a minister at the time, so he must have seen Obama’s passport). The governments of Great Britain, Pakistan and Equatorial Guinea and the management of Air India also know a few things about Obama that they do not want to divulge.
Of course, the birfers could also choose to believe that all these people are being bribed. I suspect “spending millions of dollars” would then be quite an understatement:
May I suggest the addition of Siddharth Velamoor, Judge Carter’s law clerk, planted there, according to the birthers, to sabotage Orly’s lawsuit by his former employer, Perkins Coie, law firm of Obama’s attorney, Robert Bauer.
Also Supreme Court law clerk, Danny Bickell, known by the birthers to have intentionally sabotaged stay applications by both Donofrio and Taitz.
This list could get very, very long…
Paul Pieniezny: Orly, that nogoodnik, has said on Israeli TV that Obama paid off McCain.
Ditto. That and Soros bought my vote 😉
You speak more truly than you know.
A comment that I have left on Orly’s blog a few times which she has posted.
It’s a well known fact that there’s a secret society of the five wealthiest people in the world known as The Pentavirate, who run everything in the world, including the newspapers, and meet tri-annually at a secret country mansion in Colorado known as The Meadows.
Members include The Queen, The Getty’s, The Rothchild’s, The Vatican, and Colonel Sanders before he went tits up. Ohhh, how I had The Colonel and his Wee Beedy Eyes, and that smug look on his face “Oh! You’re gonna buy my chicken! Ohhhh.”
So Doc. You forgot to include these people. 🙂
you left out the passport breach
I see that my two, God Almighty and Dick Cheney, are both on the list now so I think we now have covered both extremes. 🙂
The Birthers really need to go very high on the list. At one time or another they have accused each other of being secret Obama agents. They have even filed lawsuits against each other. After all, who has done more to discredit the Birther movement than Orly Taitz? Think about it.
You post more than you ever should. Anyway, I didn’t really vote for Obama, I voted for Susan Boyle, “Something in the way she moves, attracts me like no other lover . . .”
As has been mentioned on this blog, there is a poll indicating that a third of birthers think President Obama is doing a good job, which is irrelevant regarding the qualifications for the presidency. To which theory do you think they ascribe? Part of the birther crowd are liberals and democrats who believe that President Obama was born in another country, or are unsure of where. To which theory do you think they ascribe? Is it irrelevant that there are people holding a birther view who are either ignorant of the qualifications for presidency or simply don’t care whether they are met or not, as long as they are happy with the President? [Certainly whether the NBC should be changed by the amendment process is a valid issue, but the law is what it is now.]
Arthur, I am sure Susan Boyle DESERVED that kind of recognition on Obama Conspiracy Theories.
I am somewhat hurt that my suggestion that Mr. Mxyzptlk who OBVIOUSLY conjured up the invisible magic plane that flew Mama Obama from Hawaii to Mombasa (the same plane often referenced here by yguy) was not properly recognized.
Unless of course she was flown by Wonder Woman.
Oh, yes! Thank you for reminding us of Mr. Velamoor. I bet he hypnotized Judge Carter into following the law instead obeying Orly Taitz. I swear to God, I think these Obots must have all studied hypnosis with the Amazing Randi Paul or something. I think we should follow the wisdom of “Bert,” a true We-the-People patriot, who got three thumbs up for his post about what to do with Obama and his co-conspirators:
“I SAY-HANG HIM AT THE ‘STAKE’ LIKE SADDAM HUSSAIN AND BURN ALL THE OTHER CROOKS,CHICAGO MOBS, ACORN – SEIU-ALL UNIONS ALL OF WASHINGTON AND CONGRESS. TERRORIST, TREASON-PLAYERS, MUSLIM JIHADIST, COMMUNIST,MARXIST, MUSLIM JIHADIST-ISLAMIC TERRORIST-CZARS AND ANYONE HE HAD ANYTHING TO DO WITH. HE IS EVIL DEVIL AND GOOD ‘FOR NOTHING’ EXCEPT DESTROYING THIS COUNTRY AND CONSTITUTION. HIS RECORDS LOCKED DUE TO NO BIRTH CERTIFICATE, LEGAL PASSPORT-IN OTHER WORDS-INELIGIBLE ALL THE WAY AROUND. IT IS SMELLY AND ROTTEN IN WASHINGTON!!! FIX IT NOW!!!”
Not only has Bert revealed the solution to our country’s woes, he’s discovered how emphatic the use of uppercase can be. I WISH ALL BIRTHERS WOULD CAPITALIZE EVERY WORD, BECAUSE IT MAKES THEIR WRITING LOUDER AND EASIER TO REMEMBER.
“is a poll indicating that a third of birthers think President Obama is doing a good job, which is irrelevant regarding the qualifications for the presidency.”
I would not label as a birther someone who happens to answer a poll that they do not know whether the President was born in the United States, or think he may not have been born here. I label as birthers those who follow the issue, read and believe only the facts that support their own beliefs and argue the President was ineligible despite the clear evidence that he is.
Of course, I have never actually met anyone who has expressed that opinion to me. Not one.
Please tell us how you knew of Susan in Nov 2008 or do you have a time machine?
I think there are a few things going on. First, I don’t think the poll asked about eligibility per se, but rather whether the president was born in the US. The eligibility of those born outside the US is certainly not cut and dried as it is for those born inside the US, but there is good reason to think the courts would not find someone born to US citizens overseas ineligible. Certainly the Senate was willing to state categorically that McCain was eligible. Now I know in Obama’s case that that only one parent was a citizen and there is an issue regarding his mother’s age, but frankly, to the average Joe, that is going to look a lot like a legal technicality. Going 56 in a 55 zone is technically speeding, but most folks would be pretty angry if they got a ticket in that situation. The bottom line is that when people think non-NBC, they think Schwarzenegger, not someone born to US citizens overseas. And I’m not sure that the courts don’t take the same position. Congress certainly does.
Second, while there are those who pretend the Constitution is holy writ, what they really hold holy is what they think it says. Take abortion. For all the impassioned arguments on both sides, the word doesn’t appear in the Constitution. I’m pro-choice, but I base my position not on the Constitution, but on the public policy arguments regarding the fact that making abortion illegal doesn’t stop it, just drives it underground and makes it unsafe. Same with drugs-the courts have said the drug laws are constitutional; that doesn’t make them wise. In fact, I think the current public discourse is much too focused on the Constitution and narrow legalistic interpretations thereof, rather than what is good for us as a society and as individuals.
So, I think most people take a practical attitude. They see eligibility as an issue for the campaign. Once someone is in office, then we switch into governing mode (as adults must) and focus on how they are doing. I actually think that makes sense. I had no big issue with the birthers filing their initial court cases prior to the election. It’s their refusal to accept the verdicts and their desire to continue litigting this (likely they will still be litigating long after Obama is out of office) that are galling.
It was Green Lantern who created the plane with the force of will through his power ring. Barack Obama had one drink to many and his car, carrying Stanley Ann to the hospital to deliver the baby, swerved off the road and was about to crash when Green Lantern saw it. He reasoned that Mombasa was the best hospital to rush the mother to since, … [help me here, uhhhhhh] since Obama Sr. was mumbling something about wife and Kenya.
I AM A PATRIOT–THE RULES OF TIME, HISTORY, AND LOGIC DO NOT APPLY TO ME. Oslo, as you Obots apreantly dnt relize Enland is 8 hours faster ahead intime thn U.S. of A.!!!!
These were all folks who doubted that Obama was born in the US. I assume their belief is based on one-sided information. If birth-doubting WorldNetDaily is the 500th most popular web site in the country (and I’m like #146,000), I could see how they might not get the whole story.
What does Norway have to do with Obama’s eligibility?
Nothing. “Oslo” is norwean for “Also” and I was eating Norwayean kippers when I posted and my fingers slipped and made a boo=boo. See, I admited a mistake–=unlike how you Obots noever do.
The Brotherhood of Dada: turned the policeman who was going to arrest the whole scheme into a giant glass toilet bowl.
Ah, yes. “Smoke me a kipper. I’ll be back for breakfast”.
Don’t forget the clones!
Dave, I’m still waiting for Soros to send me that gift certificate for Sharper Image he promised. What about you, Misha? Did you get anything for your vote?
Hilarious! Kudos to both of you for the creative comic book humor! 😉
I agree that those poll results are bizarre and I simply don’t have an answer for why, as there is not enough information to glean from those answers other that to make pure speculation as to their motives or for any more definitive correlation between the data results. If I ever run into someone who fits into that category, I’ll ask them.
Yes, yes he does. However, finally something of relevant value from yguy that is topical to the post at hand – the theory that “mind control” and “subliminal brainwashing through the tee-vee” definitely should get added to the conspiracy list!
Kudos also to Passerby for pointing out ACORN! LOL! I’m smacking myself on the forehead…how could any of us have forgotten so quickly about ACORN and SEIU as one of the main birther conspiracy cries of election manipulation & voter intimidation since the very beginning of birtherdom! 🙂
How can you for Diebold without whose assistance none of us would be here.
Shush – no one is supposed to know.
Brought to you by The International Jewish Conspiracy
I would include former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, who, as head of the State Department, no doubt had immediate access to a copy of the birth certificate (then) Senator Obama used to get previous passports.
I would include Robert Mueller, Director of the FBI. appointed by President Bush; and CIA Director Michael Hayden, also appointed by President Bush.
You did mention the CIA and the FBI, but the fact of the matter is that Birthers have to not only believe that those agencies are involved, but that the directors, appointed by Republicans, were also involved.
Oh! I almost forgot: President Reagan & his CIA Director, William J. Casey, who would have been responsible for young Obama being a secret agent in Afghanistan.
I think you’re forgetting the most nefarious group of conspirators of all-the Founding Fathers. They deliberately used a term, natural born citizen, that no one really knows the meaning of, just so that people 230 years later would waste countless hours arguing over it, instead of listening to the birther brain trust and using “born of 2 citizen parents”.
HEY Dr C.
You forgot about WTC 7 going down in an implosion ( to destroy financial records) after the planes hit but WTC 1 and 2.
Why else would Cheney not have asked if any opposed the electoral vote?
When you want to go big Dr. C., go big. 🙂
Social Security Administration — refusal to charge Obama with stealing of SS #’s (39!)
Selective Service Administration — creating a false registration for Obama so it looks like he registered on time
Occidental College — admitted Obama as an Indonesian citizen and gave him aid only available to foreign students
State Department — hiding/altering Obama’s travel to Pakistan on a non-US passport
The biggest conspirator is Chronos, the Greek god of time who arranged everything to fit perfectly together. He was also probably the inventor of that pesky “elections have consequences”.
i thought the black panthers were in charge of voter intimidation. are they on the list yet ?
Don’t forget Hillary Clinton, who could have kept Obama off the ballot, but she desperately wanted to be Secretary of State instead of President.
And John McCain who really didn’t want to be president in spite of the fact that he’d spent about 20 years running for the job.
Clearly they could have stopped Barack Obama, but chose not to. Maybe they just couldn’t resist his charisma.
The immense number of people who would have to involved in this conspiracy is laughable. It reminds me of a line from “Eccentricities of a Nightingale” by Tennessee Williams. The lead character’s father, an Episcopal priest, criticizes his daughter, Alma, for befriending some oddball townsfolk, and she responds by citing an exchange between two pious Quakers, one of whom remarks, “Everybody is mad in this world but thee and me, and thou art a little peculiar!”
Anyone who can quote (and deliciously paraphrase) the Lantern’s oath is a god in my eyes. I bow to to you, sir!
Reading the scenarios spun by a few of our trolls lately I do have the feeling that we have entered comic-book land.
Mind you, under G W Bush, the US foreign policy did seem based on Green Lantern to me — as in, “if only we exert more will power, we’ll conjure up a giant green hammer to smash our enemies.” But I digress.
We could use a few more of those. Dadas, I mean, not toilet bowls.
Don’t forget the FRENCH who knowingly and with malice aforethought let young Obama enter and visit our beautiful country with an obviously forged indo-muslim passport and let him pass himself off as a member of the Superior Murkan Race while here.
I’m sure there’s a way to work in the Templars (as per Umberto Eco’s rule that no conspiracy is complete without them) but i haven’t quite figured it out.
Use your imagination. I’m sure you’ll come up with something.
Heh, that’s nothing. I know how to pronounce Mxyzptlk! (In the era of the Wikipedia, I guess that’s not all that impressive any more.)
Well, that sucks. You’re getting a gift certificate for Sharper Image? I just got an espresso maker..
i tried and came up with nothing. ask sven, he’s good at these kind of stories.
It’s obvious. Obama is a descendant of Jacques de Molay, descended illegitimately when the Grand Master broke his monastic vows to father a child who would, according to a secret prophecy of the Templars handed down by Grand Masters since the beginning, resurrect the Order and bring destruction to the Vatican in revenge against the heirs of Clement.
Oh, and he’s also a descendant of Gilles de Rais. And Götz von Berlichingen.
Thank to teh google, a search for “Obama Templars” quickly turned up the, er, grailstone we were looking for.
I knew that someone somewhere had succeeded in working in the Templars. Umberto Eco rules!
Have a lot of brain bleach ready, then click on:
It’s all explained in there, in great historical detail, how Obama is the Antichrist secreted by the Templars-Mason-Illuminati after a gazillion years to bring us all down.
From the delusional AGJ birthers, here is their new piece of evidence that “Obama is a usurper”….You really can’t make this stuff up….
Obama’s Tribe: Letter of the day!
June 4th, 2010
Received by American Grand Jury today by email:
We had a new waiter at our usual Olive Garden (Avon, Indiana) this afternoon. Noting the accent, my German friend asked him where he was from. He answered “Kenya”, and she asked him jokingly if he knew Obama. He said that actually Obama belongs to his Luo tribe (as did Obama’s father)–a tribe of fishermen. I said “Obama was born there, wasn’t he…”, and he replied (slightly shaking his head almost as if he was embarrassed) saying: “Yes, of course he was–everyone there knows that.”
Made my day.
This is really funny stuff….To think that these idiots really think that this would be evidence is crazy. Sometimes you really have to laugh at these tinfoil hat fools…See below…

Get the info over to Lt Col Lakin. Let us collect money to pay to have this guy testify on June 11 for Lakin.

they can refuse all they want. they will have to drop the case. it is an inadequate prosecution. they dropped it against stefan cook. i just finished explaining to a black friend of mine who has been duped by the media that there are three requirements to being president. one of them is to be born in the United States as is taught to us in third grade and he agreed. he asked me why does it matter. i explained to him that it matters because of protections against foreign enemies from invading the oval office. the entire black culture has been brainwashed by this fool bama into believing that it is ok to trash the constitution. of course bama will use it when it favors his vantage point and disregard the rest. that is a violation of his oath that he took to become senator. bama is an illegitimate president, biden knows it, pelosi knows it.

LTC Lankin trial may never happen now that he has no defense his legal advisors will tell him to agree to deploy seeing as he has no defense he will more than likely comply. It is sad that it has come to this. Does anyone know does he have a military lawyer or civilian lawyer?
If it is a military lawyer he will not want to go against that installation commanders wish.
Let us also add JB Williams and the delusional Canada Free Press….
“More than 400 civil and criminal suits have been filed in countless courts across the country raising a myriad of challenges to Barack Obama’s legitimacy for the office of president, or Commander-in-Chief.
So far, every court has declined to hear any evidence against Barack Obama. Name one time in history when you could find not one court willing to ask the most obvious questions on a matter as pressing as who the president of the nation really is?”
“Under an unlawful commander, every order is an unlawful order. This means that above all other citizens, members of the military have a unique stake in the matter of who is issuing military orders, and as a result, a very real right to get an answer to that question.
It has been well established that no matter who Barack Obama’s real father might be, or where on earth he might have been born, he is NOT a “natural born citizen” of the United States and he is, therefore, ineligible for the office he currently holds.
Most of what Obama has stated we already know to be a lie. He has refused to release any records to document any part of his life, his birth, his education, his travel, his adoption in Indonesia or his association with a laundry list of anti-American evil-doers. Beyond the fact that most of the public propaganda on the man is not true, we know literally nothing about this person.
Members of the US Military are not obligated to take orders from such an individual. Commanding our troops is an honor and a privilege. The honor is reserved for only one individual at a time, and that individual must meet certain specific requirements or the honor is not theirs.”
The article then really goes off the deep end….
“It must be noted that without having delivered an official birth certificate, Driscoll himself could not put on a military uniform and could have no opinion in this matter at all. An allegedly forged COLB, such as that presented by FactCheck and Daily KOS on behalf of Barack Obama, would not be accepted by the US Military as an official “birth certificate.”
“In essence, Lt. Col. Lakin is being denied any real defense. Without being able to present evidence supporting his claims that he has been issued unlawful orders, by an unlawful Command, he has no defense. Yet every member of the military is sworn to follow only “lawful orders.” The penalty for following unlawful orders can be extreme. The issue of “lawful orders” is clearly of utmost importance to every American in uniform.”
And then we have the CFP defending our old buddy the court martialed Walter Fitzpatrick….Funny stuff….
“At the same time, across the country in Monroe County Tennessee, another decorated career officer awaits his fate, in the hands of a corrupt Grand Jury which has also declined to accept evidence against Barack Obama for more than a year now.”
After months of blocks from local law enforcement officers and court officials, Fitzpatrick filed a criminal complaint against local officials for obstruction of justice and was shortly thereafter arrested on April 1, 2010 – while trying to affect a citizen’s arrest upon members of the local system. Tennessee has some of the strongest citizen arrest laws in the country. But when it comes to Obama, no law seems to be in effect, anywhere in the country.
Fitzpatrick was incarcerated for days without food or water, while denied visitors, and stands charged with “committing actual RIOT””—based upon the four supporters present to video document events on April 1, “resisting arrest” for actually resisting police officers unlawful physical assault, while being frog marched off public property by the local Sheriff’s Department, “interrupting a meeting” by trying to affect a citizen’s arrest upon people in that meeting and “disorderly conduct” by trying to expose corruption and obstruction of justice in his local community.”
Jame’s your brain works in interesting ways.
My mind boggles at the twisted rationale that would be needed to make Barrack Obama not a NBC, no matter where he was born or who his father is.
And we have a winner for telling the most untruths in a single posting! Tell him what he’s won, Doc.
“And we have a winner for telling the most untruths in a single posting! Tell him what he’s won, Doc.”
This makes it obvious that birthers are not familiar with paypal free sites. To help make them feel at home we should add a paypal button. As birthers are being scammed on birther sites, we should participate as well. We can label our paypal button as “Birther Central”, then we can forward all donations to the National Institute of Mental Health. The delusions suffered by our birther trolls affect their whole life and that is sad so NIMH may help.
We need a FEMA “group home”.
I love the idea of a paypall button for nothing but accepting donations- without one word as to what the funds are going towards.
Just to see how many people use it.
Don Pardo: It’s a car! Yes, the 2010 Conestoga is yours. This fully equipped model has a retail value of $20,000, and it’s yours for playing.
That’s pretty impressive, but can you pronounce Joe Btfsplk?
Today’s humor from the Post and Fail….It seems like the Post and Fail are challenging WND, the Canada Free press, and the Sonoran news for most ridiculous site full of misinformation out there….Their most recent article where they had explain why they “moderate” their comments, they address what to call the rightfullly elected President of the US….
“Comments disagreeing with editorials or articles will generally not be published unless the commenter is objecting to the fairness and objectivity of the article and has sound reasons to do so.”
“Additional Editor’s Note: Because there is a mountain of evidence indicating that Barack H. Obama is not a natural born Citizen as required by Article II, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution to serve as President, The Post & Email does not refer to him as the “President.” Therefore, if your submission refers to “President Obama” or “Mr. President,” the wording will be changed unless and until Obama proves that he meets the eligibility criteria. Anyone not in agreement with this policy should withhold his or her submission.”
More Conspiracy innuendo from the Post and Fail…
It is amazing how they intertwine lies, innuendo, and plain crap to manufacture this article…Rondeau is one of the worst hatchet people on that site….
I guess it was a slow news day for them…..
“Obama’s name is Arab and he is descended from Muslims.
It was an Israeli publication which first suggested that the image of the Certification of Live Birth posted on Obama’s website might be a forgery.
A 2006 article in The Honolulu Advertiser reported that Obama was born in Indonesia. Even the mainstream media discussed it before they were forbidden to do so by their puppeteers. Wikipedia states that Indonesia “has the world’s largest population of Muslims.” Obama has called Jakarta his “old home town.”
He does not appear to have strong ties to Honolulu, HI, where he claims he was born.
There is evidence that he was raised a Muslim. One researcher has concluded that Obama was born a Muslim and because his school registration papers in Indonesia indicated that he was a Muslim, he received religious instruction on Islam while in school. That might also explain his desire to placate the Muslim world.
Several African newspapers have published statements about Obama’s birth in Kenya in 2004 and later, and the Kenyan Parliament still insists that Obama was born there. Perhaps that explains his affinity with Kenya and his willingness to spend millions of taxpayer dollars on convincing Kenya’s people to endorse a new constitution, now the focus of an investigation called for by several members of Congress. He has involved himself in Kenyan politics since the time during which he served as a U.S. senator.
Obama’s ancestors are members of the Luo tribe, and an article in a Kenya travel guide states that Obama himself is “half American by descent.”
Well in that case since nowt I will send them will ever be published I shall continue to call them the intolerant totalitarian Marxist control freaks that they are…..8-)
If you really want to annoy the cack out of them use an anonymizer such as TOR or an anonymous proxy and post as one of their pet echo chambers.
They really have a problem understanding technology and when they do the traditional and periodic “outing” of Obot Brownshirts with email addresses and poorly redacted IP addresses they never quite get that they bear little relationship to reality.
