Several readers of this blog are complaining that they are nable to post. Please, contact email@example.com and demand that they fix this glitch ASAP
And that’s the most interesting recent post from Orly Taitz! What’s the world coming to when all an anti-birther gets to write about is maintenance problems on Orly’s web site? Or perhaps this breaking news headline from Orly is more to your taste:
No decisions yet in 5 pending cases
At least she didn’t make that 5 articles. Another major article says that Israel Hanukoglu complained to Orly about a typo in her link to his site, and this somehow turns into harassment of academics. The rest of her stuff is just invective against everybody in the government, accusing of them of treason, and some nasty anti-Muslim bigotry. Pathetic and wholly uninteresting.
A quick scan of Birther Report didn’t get my juices flowing either. Maybe there’s something in the comments, but really, “any day now” is pretty threadbare after all this time.
On the “any day now” theme, Obot1 has declared the birther movement dead — again. Yeah, right.
BR, I call it Birther Recycle, is getting pretty boring as well. Even Joe Mannix from Cave Creek is getting beyond boring. And what about *FALCON*? Is he out somewhere getting his feathers plucked? Yep, the silence is Universe Shattering.
I gotta remember that one.
Well, you have to admit…the birthers’ universe has been shattered! All they’re left with are empty threats and hoping Zullo hasn’t abandoned them.
The Falcon has moulted.
The state of being not able to function as a human being.

The Birfer “movement” is dead, for a given value of dead; they haven’t a leg to stand on, they convince no one not already convinced, they can’t sway an election (or even public opinion,) and they are justifiably ridiculed by every reputable entity in every reputable forum.
Birfers still birf, but anything resembling a “movement,” with a coherent strategy, much less an achievable goal, is nothing but a pipe dream.
BirtherReport is so boring it’s putting me to sleep. Time for a nap!
Well over at BR, one of the inmates was asking about today’s Freedumb Friday, and in a pathetic straw grab another one says something like “Hey! July 4th is a on a Friday!” It wouldn’t surprise me one bit, if even before “American Spring” comes and goes without so much as a whimper, that the birthers will be pinning their hopes on some Independence Day Miracle. It seems to be a pattern, someone mentions an obscure day, and suddenly that is going to be THE day something is gonna happen. 🙂
There’s only so many ways they can make empty threats about the President or the anti-birthers…and they’ve pretty much saturated those topics. Past that, they got nothing. The admin really ought to consider opening up comments again to the anti-birthers, it would at least make it a little more entertaining over there.
Birtherism has become a real snoozer. Maybe for giggles they can resurrect BENGHAAAAAZIIII!!!! or Fast and Furious or KitchenPosterGate.
Naw, even those are boring. I think I’ll take a nap instead.
Oh, Benghazi is still around. It’s just been reduced to a spear-carrier role. It’s the soldier with the eye patch and facial burns who says “And don’t forget what those (insert epithet here)s did to us at (name of horrible defeat)!” 2 or 3 times during the movie. And then gets cut down to one repetition in post-production.
Speaking of “gates,” I ran across one about Hillary Clinton that I had never heard before, “snipergate.”
Today was Good Friday. Did preacher Gallups talk about Obama or Jesus?
It was actually quite a big deal during the 2008 Democratic primaries. Secretary Clinton in campaign speeches would mention having to run from sniper fire after a landing in Bosnia.
Then CBS released video of the airport ceremony.
Yeah, it was evidence no. 7609780348709r8 of “Hillary is a liar” in some quarters. Frankly she was stupid to play it up so much.
Later they tried to do the same to VP candidate Joe Biden when he talked in a speech about his Helicopter crash landing in Afghanistan in a heavy Taliban area. Of course then they looked into it convinced they would get another snipergate and found that Handsome Joe had actually crash landed in a helicopter in Afghanistan in a heavy Taliban area. It was forced down in a storm. Strangely they shut up about it after that.
Poor Scott E. is still trying to resurrect that corpse.
I want my moment in the sun. After one of her rants yesterday about treasonous-Kenya-Indonesian-Sobarkah-Obama I posted a comment asking how if he wasn’t an American citizen he could be guilty of treason. Usually when people point out what crap she talks she either doesn’t post, or else posts and then responds with what she thinks is a killer put-down reply. But what do I see this morning:
“I believe that Obama’s indecision is motivated by either treason (if he ever became a US citizen) or by flagrant act of espionage and sabotage”
Actually, there is no requirement to be an American citizen to be guilty of treason; temporary allegiance is sufficient.
Carlisle v. U S, 83 U.S. 147 (1872)
” We have already held in Hanauer v. Doane,1 and we repeat and reaffirm what we there said, that ‘he who, being bound by his allegiance to a government, sells goods to the agent of an armed combination to overthrow that government, knowing that the purchaser buys them for that treasonable purpose, is himself guilty of [83 U.S. 147, 151] treason or a misprision thereof”
And I should have been clearer on that. There’s also the UK decision in Joyce, after WW2, where an unexpired passport was held to constitute allegiance.
This decision was interesting to say the least. Joyce was born in the US and arguably also took German citizenship. He is also supposed to have lied about details on the application to obtain the passport that was “held to constitute allegiance”.
The argument around the passport was that it entitled him, theoretically, to the protection by the British. But really, the case was all about getting him convicted.
