In the United States in 2011 2,468,435 people died (source CDC). So over the almost 5 years Obama has been in office, somewhere around 4% of the US population died. It stands to reason that some of those people had something to do with Barack Obama, and given the infamous “Clinton body count” conspiracy theory one could easily foresee something similar for Obama, and I came across one today, called “Obama’s ‘Dead Pool’” at the Nachumlist web site [no longer operating], itself a week-by-week compilation of everything negative that could be said about the Obama administration over the last 3 years. The “Dead Pool” runs about 57 names (hasty count). You can see how tenuous the connections can get with names like Tom Clancy on the list. If you really want to go down the conspiracy rabbit hole, check out that site. (A composite Clinton / Bush / Obama suspicious death list tops 250 names).
I must admit that this one really ballooned under my radar. I did the Google search: “Robin Copeland” “cause of death” and up came pages and pages of references to “mysterious deaths” associated with Obama. (Copeland was a Department of Energy employee who died suddenly at age 46.)
On the other hand, birthers seem to have led a charmed life. Can you think of one birther of note who has died since Obama took office? (Andrew Breitbart was not a birther).
I continue to marvel at someone who says: “WE ARE IN SERIOUS TROUBLE BECAUSE EVERY ONE WHO STANDS UP TO OBAMA & THE MUSLIM MAFIA IN CHARGE, WINDS UP DEAD” yet has not the slightest hesitation about saying so on the Internet.
How long is the list of birthers that are either dead wrong or too ineffectual to have been thrown into President Obama’s “dead pool”?
It is interesting that you asked that question. When I commented on this at Birther Report, I made such a list sort of off the top of my head. I was thinking about maybe doing a birther list web page just for reference. Here was my list (which is depressing by its length):
Montgomery Blair Sibley
Dr. Ronald Polland
Mia Marie Pope
James David Manning
Lucas Daniel Smith
It’s all symptomatic of the the larger epidemic of Obama Derangement Syndrome (sorry, no markup for spooky wavy lines) that allows these folks to fall for anything that they think demonstrates the evil that is Obama.
Check out the latest “Obama hates Christians and Catholics so he’s closing the U.S. Embassy to the Vatican” nonsense. None of it is true!
Or here’s one I just found…..Obama had the woman shot at the Capital last month murdered because she had given birth to his illegitimate daughter.
Is there nothing these fools won’t believe? Oh……never mind.
“WE ARE IN SERIOUS TROUBLE BECAUSE EVERY ONE WHO STANDS UP TO OBAMA & THE MUSLIM MAFIA IN CHARGE, WINDS UP DEAD”
And yet you’re still alive………
Has there ever been an actual, proven, documented case of a President ordering a Mafia-style hit on anyone?
birfers will of course beg to differ but by their own logic it’s been long apparent that saying stuff on the internet does not count as “standing up to obama”.
It depresses me both that I recognize nearly everyone on that list and that I can think of a few names you missed…
Lawrence Sellin, drk(H)ate, Chris Monckton, Leo Donofrio, Sharon Meroni, techdude, and an usurpathon or two of whackjobs who fight their evil overlords by posting comments about their crank legal theories on blogs or being lickspittles for some of the others.
Somebody actually killed in the way RWNJs think Vince Foster, Ron Brown or Andrew Breitbart was killed.
I can think of exactly one, but his birtherism is largely unrelated to why he’s “of note”, and he’s also not someone the birthers have ever wanted to claim as one of their own:
James von Brunn, the Holocaust museum shooter.
“On the other hand, birthers seem to have led a charmed life. Can you think of one birther of note who has died since Obama took office?”
James von Brunn
i can’t think of any event that ever went down the way rwnjs think it did.
Is techdude still alive? I thought we …..
Major Stefan Cook died of pancreatic cancer a couple of years ago. It’s too bad he never got over his birtherism. He was one of the few people who might have had a legitimate claim that Orly Taitz’s incompetence in handling his case caused him severe damage. (I’m assuming that she had no idea that his lawsuit could result in him losing his security clearance, and subsequently, his civilian job, which I’m sure she did not.)
Didn’t Kennedy order a hit on Castro? And then there was bin Laden.
And just when the birthers had me convinced that Obama is gay.
Thank you, Doc!! That’s exactly what I was thinking of.
You got me there.
It gets worse: after I read the USNews article linked to by the “Or Else…” thread, I noticed an odd headline in the “related” articles:
It turns out that one of last year’s turkeys died of heart failure, just like Andrew Breitbart.
This can only mean that Obama’s NSA used (gasp!) animal experimentation to test out their super-secret anti-anti-Obama-people weapon. No other explanation is possible (Some Obots claimed that the bird died of fright when it wandered into office while the staff was using their Xerox 7655 to print out some flyers. But the CCP disproved this with an Official Scientific Experiment: they made a “control turkey” by printing out a picture of Liberty in black-and-white, and photocopying it onto green safety paper. They then had a person wearing a white lab coat hold the picture near a 7655 while it was scanning Obama’s forged Columbia University library card. The control turkey did not react to the noise and lights at all, so the Xerox theory has been utterly destroyed).
Someone needs to get this shocking information to PETA right away. Maybe they can succeed where the birfers have failed.
They have STANDING! I mean, how can Obama pardon a turkey if he’s not really the President?
Your latest from “Pastor” James Manning – President Obama “had the mother of his love child killed”
I moved your comment here from the Open Thread
Is it just me, or is that headline really fraught with potential?
I see Charlton Heston crashing the ceremony, yelling “Soylent Green is turkey!!”
Or it could be the title for a Birther Report youtube video, in which the KPHO newsbabe says “Sheriff Arpaio says he thinks Obama’s turkey pardons may be fake”, with a story of a news conference in which Mara Zebest announces that she downloaded the pictures from whitehouse.gov, and determined that they were actually of Obama with Bo, and the turkey was Photoshopped in. Sheriff Joe says that Congress should investigate whether the turkeys really did “go to live on a farm”.
Or some rwnj broke into Mount Vernon, and shot all the turkeys to protest Obama’s attempt to “institute Communist gun control by executive order”.
Update from Birther Report:
The law firm representing the Carey family posted the following statement in the comment section below:
Response to The Raw Story piece about Birther Preacher James David Manning’s claims about President Obama, Miriam Carey, her minor child and the wishes of the Carey family:
There is no suggestion, nor has there ever been any suggestion by the Carey family that President Obama is the child’s father. Please in the future, contact me directly if there are any questions about anything related to Miriam I. Carey’s untimely death or the Carey family.
They could just kill the story based on this but then where would FALCON be able to rant and rave.
Isn’t it true that both were found to have arteries clogged chock full of genuine Xerox toner?
We’ll never know, because Obama paid his lawyers 2.2 pentillion dollars to have the autopsies sealed.
Thanks so much for the link to the site. Very kind.
The real “conspiracy” seems to be those who actually find something ‘good’ to say about the Obama presidency.
Please, share with us your conspiracy theories on how things are so much better now.- Obamacare? Um… QE 1? 2? The stimulus? Military deaths? The economy? C’mon, what’s your ‘conspiracy’?
Oh wait! It’s all George Bush’s fault!… No …er, it’s Reagan’s fault!… Oh well, I am sure you will find a positive and someone to blame. It’s what Obama supporters do well.
Go for it. I will even publish it on my site. 🙂 If it is really good, I will throw it out to 9,000 folks on Twitter. Maybe some other media will pick it up.
Have a nice day.
So what was Obama’s complaint about Tom Clancy?
His novels were too long?
His guided missiles and fuel tanks had more character development than his human beings?
All of his characters were alike?
His plots were increasingly preposterous?
Everyone in the world apparently seeking to kill Jack Ryan and his family?
Clancy’s heavy-handed allegories about World War II, Vietnam, and military history?
His attempt to buy the Baltimore Orioles?
On this site, Obama’s job performance is not typically discussed (pro or con). Some of the really crazy criticisms are discussed, like the story that Obama gave the plans to Marine 1 to the Iranians.
ObamaCare gets extremely narrow coverage. It would be off topic to say that ObamaCare is not working, or that it is working better. About the only time I’d get involved is if someone wrote a crazy lie about it, like ObamaCare requires implanting an RFID chip in every patient (which it doesn’t).
Birthers (and I don’t know if you are a birther or not) have a hard time appreciating that someone could debunk a lie about Obama without being a fan of his. Some people just want the truth. Others just want to say bad things about Obama, and the facts can sometimes inconvenience that goal.
My guess is that they spend a lot less time checking facts over at the Nachum site, than I do here. You might find my article http://www.obamaconspiracy.org/2013/11/worshiping-the-pile/ informative.
Are you someone who believes you shouldn’t take responsibility for your actions?
