Homegrown Hatred and Terrorists

Just how dangerous are all these homegrown hate groups and terrorists within the borders of the US, and who are they? Well, there are so many it’s difficult to really say. The Southern Poverty Law Center, (splcenter.org) has a map of the locations of racist hate groups that have been around for some time, and has documented 926 groups operating in this country. They say that there has been a more than 50% increase in these groups since 2000, and of course electing a black president has not helped to diminish any of this. Some of the groups they have listed are:

White Nationalists
Neo-Nazis
Racist Skinheads
Black Separatists
Ku Klux Klan
Anti-Gay
Anti-Immigrant
Radical Traditionalist Catholics
Neo-Confederates

Then we have the religious extremists groups such as the Army of God that promotes (and praises) bombings of abortion clinics and the murders of abortion doctors. As well as groups like Christian Identity, Christian Patriots and the Lambs of Christ. All of who believe their acts of domestic terrorism are justified because, “they are on a mission from God”. (So of course that makes it okay.)

Paul Krugman published an article in the New York Times on June 11, 2009 called “The Big Hate”, (Read article here) where he outlined how right-wing extremism is being systematically fed by the conservative media and political establishment. He also stated; “Yes, the worst terrorist attack in our history was perpetrated by a foreign conspiracy. But the second worst, the Oklahoma City bombing, was perpetrated by an all-American lunatic. Politicians and media organizations wind up such people at their, and our, peril.” And he would be right on the money with that one.

So, what about the extreme (and delusional) views of people like Orly Taitz and the Birthers? Are they likely to sprout another Timothy McVeigh? Unfortunately for all of us they very well could. In an earlier post I talked about how Orly Taitz is not only inciting hate and sedition on her blog, but also calling for armed revolt against our government and most especially against President Obama.

My question is what is the motivation of this treasonous Moldavian immigrant Orly Taitz? Born with communist and Israeli roots, and harboring extreme anti-Arab and anti-Muslim sentiments, could her hatred of Obama be rooted in the fact that his father was a Muslim and her belief that he is Muslim as well? She calls him a communist and claims he’s guilty of treason, but isn’t that is exactly what she is?

Is it all just because of her hatred for Muslims? She continually fuels the anti-Muslim phobias of all of these simple-minded right wing racist extremists, (then collects them as clients as she goes). As with other, (as Paul Krugman put it) “all-American lunatics” that have committed horrific acts of domestic terrorism there is no telling what may happen as a result.

Could she really be hoping that something horrible happens? Is she some kind of communist terrorist infiltrator, on a mission to encourage the simple minded among us into attempting an armed revolt on our government, or God forbid that some whack job follower of hers tries to make an attempt on Obama himself. Or is she just incredibly friggin stupid as she continues to call for her followers to form armed militias and says “It might be time now”. 

I hope the Secret Service and the FBI have her on their watch lists.

The Grand Old Party


Hard to believe the Modern Republican Party (in 1845) was founded by anti-slavery activists, (dare I say… Liberals?) Their major opposition issue was slavery, and very few if any white Southerners wanted anything to do with them. Even Catholics were primarily loyal Democrats until well after WWII.

Southern white democrats of course opposed the election of Lincoln, and once he freed the slaves many of them took to wearing white sheets and running murderous night raids. In their minds it was justified, after all they had to maintain white supremacy and keep those (now) good for nothing “Nigras” in their place. For a hundred years they did a pretty good job. Blacks may have been freed, but it was for damn sure they would not use white only toilets, drink from white only fountains or eat in a white only restaurant, at least not in the south. Not unless they wanted to be beaten to death or hung.

Then came President Kennedy followed by Johnson and the civil rights movement, and all hell broke lose. Suddenly all those once loyal democrats (or racists bigots) started bailing right and left. They refused to be part of a party that would have them piss in the same pot as some no account Negro, I mean Pah-leease! So as more and more whites migrated to the GOP, more and more blacks signed up as democrats.

Was that the tide that changed the face of the Republican Party forever? It seems over the years since to have become the party of choice for just about every hate group, extremist group and every redneck in this country. And as soon as a black man ended up on the democratic ticket for president they all came out in force, and they flocked to the GOP like ducks to water.

Thankfully they were not the majority, just for a change. As many Americans over the years have progressed beyond the racist bigotry of the past, many more began to see just how ugly and ignorant the face of that bigotry really was. Ugly because they were bursting at the seams with racial hatred, and ignorant because they believed they believed they were slick enough to hide their bigotry.

Since the onset of the 2008 campaign they called Obama a Muslim and a terrorist and every derogatory thing they could think of as well as accusing him of being guilty of every rumor they heard or read on the Internet. The fact that none of it was true was irrelevant; they were just desperate to have some kind of way to slander him. They wanted and still want him to fail at anything he attempts and they don't care what they have to do to make that happen. The Birthers claim he isn’t even eligible to be president, Teabaggers call him a socialist and communist, and Christian extremists call him the anti-Christ.

The most outrageous part of it all is watching these people attempt to claim that their disapproval and dislike of Obama is totally based on the issues, not because of his race. But the truth is most of them never had, and still have no clue what the issues actually were, nor do they really care. All they care about is opposing Obama and every time they are pressed for an answer as to why they, babble like idiots.



Has the GOP become nothing more than the new KKK?



It’s really a shame that in this day and age this kind of hatred and ignorance can still dominate so many people’s lives. They claim in one way or another that Obama is “hiding the truth” about himself, (among other things) but it seems to me that they are the ones that are really trying to hide the truth. The problem for them is it’s no longer politically correct to “publicly” use their white sheets to hide it with.

‘Twas The Night Before Christmas

‘Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the land,
Not a birther was stirring, nor taking a stand.
Their lawsuits were filed in many a court,
Having faith they weren’t of a frivolous sort.

They hoped that a judge would grant their request,
To bring somehow Obama’s arrest.
They claimed him a liar a fraud and a cheat,
Who got to the White House on purely deceit.

Throughout the year they’d made claim after claim,
But all of their cases ended the same.
No evidence, no grounds, no one had standing,
But that didn’t stop their constant demanding.

The harder they tried the less they succeeded,
Courtroom to courtroom their claims went unheeded.
But that won’t impede their endless plight,
Removing that usurper from their sight.

And so as we settle this Christmas Eve,
Wondering what next they will pull from their sleeve.
We’re hoping for more of the fun that we’ve had,
Watching silly fools who are raving mad.

Happy Christmas to all and to all a good night!

Uh Oh, Panic in the Birtherverse


Since the onset of the Birther Movement, birthers everywhere have clamored for headlines and recognition from the MSM about their so-called issues over Obama’s eligibility to be President. Trouble is every bit of attention they have gotten has been slamming them for their continuing claims of debunked rumors and hearsay.

On December 11, 2009 the self-proclaimed “World’s Leading Obama Eligibility Challenger” posted on her website that “Orly Taitz would be interviewed by NBC for a documentary about Obama’s eligibility”. It states that she will be able to “highlight her legal efforts to bring to light the vital records of Mr. Barack Hussein Obama and the issue of his legitimacy to be President due to lack of Natural Born Status.”

Okay…. Isn’t that what they have wanted from the beginning? Don’t you think that if they truly believed in their own cause they would be chomping at the bit to finally have this chance to have their say? But the thing is the comments related to the post announcing this interview are full of apprehension. Paranoia is running rampant; they think it’s a trap!

A few selected references: “A potential hatchet job”, “Watch your back”, “A lot of us are worried about this interview”, “This is like Adolph Hitler offering free public showers”, “Ms. Orly, Please do not trust these media”, “They will try to make you look bad”, “I fear anterior motives”, (anterior?) “Who needs to get MSM coverage from a bunch of liars”, “Bring your own personal body guard”, “ I smell a rat”, “Please remember: NBC is committed to ObaMao”, (and you have to love this one) “Insist on having Olberman and Maddow for the interview so you can show them your upper hand”.

Upper hand? Pah-Leese! Olberman and Maddow would make dog meat out of Orly Taitz.





Maybe they are starting to notice a pattern here on how all the interviews and MSM attention they do get keeps making them look, shall we say… pretty damn stupid? I wonder why they don’t wonder why that is. Could it be that stupid people don’t know their stupid, because they’re stupid?

Well, today is supposed to be the day of the interview and the questions are: Will Orly have a meltdown like she did on MSNBC? Will she chicken out and cancel? Will they debunk everything she claims, “yet again”?

This will be interesting. Keep the popcorn handy!

Diagnosing Orly Taitz


I’m not a psychiatrist, but I did see a crazy man hanging out by a McDonalds yesterday. It certainly would be interesting to read a psychiatrist’s report on Orly Taitz. Throughout my career in the medical field as a nurse in family practice and a 911 medic, I have seen and encountered some pretty bizarre individuals.

Everything from the crazy Middle Eastern guy I ended up with in my ambulance once who’d been dragged about a mile and a half on the road hanging on the outside of a car. After which he was wrestled to the ground, handcuffed, shackled and pepper sprayed by the cops before I arrived, and it still took two officers to keep him physically restrained. To that crazy old lady who came to the doctor’s office once with a large pill bottle full of what she called “seahorses” to show the doc. The seahorses by the way ended up being her collection of crusty old boogers she’d been picking out of her nose and saving.


There is no question in my mind that many of those around us are not exactly playing with a full deck. Everyone at one time or another has seen someone that you just gawked at in total bewilderment, and the only thing you could think was, WTF?. The frightening thing is realizing of how many of them are really out there and just how extremely diverse their “issues” and diagnoses can be, and the fact that they truly have no idea that they are crazy.

So, what do you suppose Orly’s diagnosis would be? Can you just imaging the bewilderment on the face of the doctor assigned to decipher that in their first session? I’m pretty sure the first thought would be, “WTF?” Her first diagnosis would have to be some kind of delusional disorder.

Delusional disorders usually first occur in mid-life. They are also more common in women than men and are a very serious condition in which a person truly cannot tell the difference between their delusions and reality. I think this is obvious in Orly because she apparently believes whole-heartedly that every authority and news network in this country is illegally conspiring to suppress what she calls “the truth” about Obama’s legitimacy to be POTUS.

This brings us to the next potential diagnosis of paranoia. People who are afflicted with Paranoid Personality Disorders never have factual evidence for whatever they are paranoid about, but they believe they do. They can be very hostile and distrustful. They are very suspicious and quick to react against perceived attacks on their character. They also spend a lot of time in court suing people. Yep, that one fits too. Just have a look at Orly’s website, she thrives on paranoia and delusions.

Ever heard of “Histrionic Personality Disorder”? This disorder is actually explicitly connected to a patient’s physical appearance. People who suffer with this disorder have distorted self-images and an overwhelming need to be noticed and be the constant center of attention. Their self-esteem is totally dependant on the approval of others. They are very manipulative and dramatic, as well as na├»ve and gullible. They often exaggerate a seductive image and have little or no tolerance for criticism or disapproval.

I don’t know if Orly’s constant quest for headlines can be tied to this diagnosis, but she does have an insatiable appetite for praise and publicity, and calls for anyone that criticizes or questions her to be criminally charged with treason. She also has her website covered with names and pictures of public and political figures she claims, “Are her friends on facebook”. She actually believes that all these people sign up to be her “friend” in support of her movement to remove Obama from office, and even stated as much in a comment posted on 12/1/09.

Back in July when Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va) accepted her facebook friendship request she publicly claimed that it proved the Republican Party understood the importance of the issues and her legal cases. Cantor’s spokesman Joe Pounder responded; “No, Cantor does not support Taitz’s cause, and that her requesting his friendship was “her” registering her support for him, not vice versa.”

And what about a Narcissistic Personality Disorder? I think they must have used Orly to write the textbook on that one. From PsychCentral.com it says:

“In order for a person to be diagnosed with narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) they must meet five or more of the following symptoms:

· Has a grandiose sense of self-importance (e.g., exaggerates achievements and talents, expects to be recognized as superior without commensurate achievements)
· Is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love
· Believes that he or she is "special" and unique and can only be understood by, or should associate with, other special or high-status people (or institutions)
· Requires excessive admiration
· Has a sense of entitlement, i.e., unreasonable expectations of especially favorable treatment or automatic compliance with his or her expectations
· Is interpersonally exploitative, i.e., takes advantage of others to achieve his or her own ends
· Lacks empathy: is unwilling to recognize or identify with the feelings and needs of others
· Is often envious of others or believes that others are envious of him or her
· Shows arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes.”

(I’d say “Bingo” on that one!)

As I said, I’m not a psychiatrist, but I do think these diagnoses would probably be somewhere in Orly’s ballpark. I guess for a professional assessment we’re just going to have to wait for one of these judges she keeps pissing off to give an order for her to be clinically evaluated.

Shouldn’t be long.

Senate Rejects Nelson Amendment 54-45

Why does anyone think that they have a right to trample on other people’s rights? Sorry but your religious issues/beliefs are your own problem and have nothing to do with anyone else’s legal rights and I think it’s about time you get over it and learn to deal with reality.

That reality is that an abortion is a legal procedure, period. I am so sick of these religious extremists, as well as churches and organizations fighting tooth and nail to limit, or restrict, or flat out deny women’s rights to “legal” reproductive care. Many not only want to deny coverage for abortion but also would outlaw abortion all together if they could. In some cases want to deny access to contraception as well. And now that we are so close to getting real healthcare reform in this country they are using abortion in any way they can to block that reform.

What the hell is wrong with these people? Should we outlaw women’s reproductive care because Christian extremists don’t agree with it? Well maybe we should outlaw blood transfusions too because it’s against the beliefs of Jehovah’s Witnesses. How about outlawing pork as well because it’s against the laws of Judaism.

The Nelson amendment was basically the same as the Stupak-Pitts Amendment that passed in the House version of the healthcare reform bill. That bill would affect both public and private insurance programs. It not only bars coverage for abortion under the public option, but also prohibits use of public funds in connection with any private health insurance plan offering coverage through the exchange that provides coverage for abortion. Including existing plans that currently provide that coverage.

This would severely restrict the availability of private insurance coverage for abortion. Effectively denying millions of women the right to coverage for a legal medical procedure. It does suggest however that women could purchase a special “Rider” in addition to their regular insurance in order to have coverage for abortion care. How does it make the first bit of sense, to ask women to buy separate coverage to plan for an unplanned pregnancy? It doesn’t, no more so than telling men they have to buy a separate policy to obtain medication for erectile dysfunction.

You have to love Senator Barbara Boxer (D-Ca.) for cutting lose on all those nay-saying Senators on the Senate floor yesterday. Have a look:



Bottom line is these anti-choice people are perfectly entitled NOT to have an abortion if they so “choose”. But they absolutely do not have the right to deny that same right of choice to anyone else. Nor should they be able to deny access to medical coverage for a perfectly legal procedure to anyone else. They claim they don’t want “Their Tax Dollars” to pay for something they believe is wrong. Well, I don’t want my tax dollars to pay for war either, but they do.

Abortion has been legal for 36 years, and no that is never going to change. Women will never go back to the back alleys with whatever god-awful things they had to go through at the time. Any more then these crusty old male senators will give up their prescriptions of Viargra and go back to just wondering “limply” along wishing they could still get an erection. (Not as easy as it used to be, is it boys?)



I say keep your religious issues whatever they may be to yourself. No “religious opinion” has any business meddling in the laws of the land, in government policy and for damn sure has no business meddling in the lives of others.  If you don’t want anyone telling you how to pray or who you can or cannot pray to and you expect to have your rights respected, then you have no right to disrespect anyone else's rights by telling them how they can or cannot live or what they can or cannot do. Other people’s lives are not your friggin business, regardless of your religious beliefs.

Birthers: Just who are they really?


I first took notice of the Birther movement when I read about Army Maj. Stefan Cook suing to get out of deploying to Afghanistan on the grounds that Obama was ineligible to be president. I had heard bits about Birthers and their erroneous claims ever since a black man with a funny name ended up on the ballot for president, but I paid little attention.

My general opinion was they were nothing more than racist assholes hell bent not to fall subordinate to some “Uppity Negro” who had the gall to think he could just march his little black ass right through the front door of the White House. So I had no interest in reading about them. But when I saw the headline about Maj. Cook, being the military brat that I am I took sudden offence at an Army officer trying to dodge a deployment in such a manor.

I read the article and as it all turned out, this guy Cook was not active duty, but a reservist who sent a “request to volunteer” to his command to go to Afghanistan on May 8th 2009, 5 months after Obama took office. With his request granted orders were cut on 6/9/09 for him to deploy on 7/15/09.

Any reservist who volunteers for an assignment has the right to rescind that request and have the orders revoked up until the scheduled day of deployment, in his case that would have been 7/15/09. The week before that date on July 8th he and Orly Taitz filed a restraining order in federal court to avoid this deployment on grounds that Obama was ineligible. Well, if he didn’t want to go, and thought Obama ineligible why would he volunteer to go? That made no sense, even less given the fact that he could have just called his command and said “ Ah, Never Mind!”

The answer? Publicity. It was nothing but a cheap publicity stunt from the off. Big Headlines, “Army Officer Sues to Avoid Deployment, Claims Obama is ineligible to be commander in chief.” The army just canceled his orders, they had too much to worry about in Afghanistan to be bothered with this clown, and I can’t say as I blame them.

Orly Taitz was all over that like flies on a pile of dung. She publicly claimed the army canceled Cook’s orders because they knew if she got them into court she would win and prove Obama was a fraud. What a crock! I couldn’t believe that she was dumb enough to think that anyone (with ½ a brain cell) would fall for that crap; in fact the only ones who did were her deranged followers. (There you go!)

I have had considerable laughs since at the absurd comedy sideshow they have become as they repeatedly get kicked out of every court they set foot in. Mel Brooks himself couldn’t have written a more comically outrageous script. I swear the people who believe that these idiots are really on to something probably don’t have the brainpower to qualify to ride the short bus! If they paid the slightest attention to who these people really are that are leading the charge they would die of embarrassment. Lets have a look.

Orly Taitz, the self proclaimed “Worlds Leading Obama Challenger”, is a dentist, real estate agent, correspondence school lawyer, and even a black belt. Lets not forget to mention “road hazard”. In just over a year she has had 4 speeding tickets, one for going in excess of 100 mph, 3 failures to stop at signs or lights, 2 tickets for yakking on a cell phone while driving, one for not wearing a seat belt and one for evading an electric toll booth.

She has been fired by several clients, one Connie Rhodes who then filed a complaint against her with the California Bar. Two others, Larry Sinclair and Lucas Smith who filed sworn affidavits with the courts attesting to her suborning perjury from both of them and accusing her of having an adulterous affair with one Charles E. Lincoln III, a disbarred lawyer, convicted felon, and her primary legal “assistant”. She swears none of that is true, but old Chucky boy came forward and said, “Yep, got me some of that!”

She has had multiple complaints filed against her and was even slapped with a $20,000 fine for her courtroom behavior. She publicly slanders every judge that that doesn’t rule in her favor and accuses them all of treason. In fact I can find no evidence that she has ever won a single case. But to give all dogs their due, (as my mother used to say) the x-clients that accused her of suborning perjury are themselves nothing but criminals. However before they turned on Orly, according to her they were “very reliable witnesses”.


Larry Sinclair has a long history of drug and fraud convictions. He even claims to have been Obama’s gay lover and took a lie detector test to prove it. Of course he failed the test and then claimed that the “obots” fudged it to protect Obama. Lucas Smith is a real gem too, also with a long criminal history, felony convictions and forgery under his belt.

The lot are nothing but proven liars, frauds, forgers, convicted felons and or delusional psychos. It’s difficult to believe that anyone is truly dumb enough to believe any of the “ever changing” allegations these idiots spew. Then again, there is no telling what’s out there wondering freely among us, and her “followers” make Forrest Gump look like an Albert Einstein, as does Orly herself.

In her latest letter to the court she has changed (yet again) her allegations and now claims Barack Obama is really Roman Obama, a foreign exchange from Equatorial Guinea. (No shit!) Here’s a link: http://www.scribd.com/doc/23624575/Orly-Taitz-Filing-12-3-09-Via-OC-Register

And here is a link to an old newspaper with a photograph of the real Roman Obama. http://news.google.com/newspapers?id=4mwQAAAAIBAJ&sjid=5osDAAAAIBAJ&pg=6655,2037468&dq=roman-obama&hl=en
Not even close, unless Barack has the ability to totally change the shape of his head.

The real question is how much longer can she go on with these absurdly wild accusations while continually wasting court time and resourses by constantly filing garbage like this? Sooner or later she will be either disbarred, or locked away in a padded room somewhere, or both. (Though I will miss the entertainment)

A Religious Debate?

Not that I’m a religious person, but someone sent me an email of a public debate between two churches, one Catholic and one Presbyterian somewhere in a Southern US town, who apparently have a difference of opinions on dogs. The debate took the form of response and counter-response on the signs in front of their churches. Someone photographed the exchange and it was quite funny, so I thought I would share.



All Dogs Go To Heaven


Only Humans Go To Heaven
Read The Bible


God Loves All His Creations
Dogs Included

Dogs Don’t Have Souls
This Is Not Open For
Debate

Catholic Dogs Go To Heaven
Presbyterian Dogs Can Talk To
Their Pastor

Converting To Catholicism Does Not
Magically Grant Your Dog A Soul

Free Dog Souls
With Conversion


Dogs Are Animals
There Aren’t Any
Rocks In Heaven Either

All Rocks
Go To Heaven



The funny thing is that there are a lot of dogs that are much nicer people than many 2-legged people. And why would anyone declare that dogs or animals don’t have souls? My dogs have emotions and feelings just like people do. I’ve even known dogs to have to be put on doggie Prozac for depression. Dogs can express love, grief, joy, fear, jealousy and even anger just like people. In many cases they are much more loyal than people. I think that if people can have souls, so can animals.

Birthers Angry for being slighted by the MSM


Why won’t the MSM give front-page coverage to the Obama Legitimacy Issue? Ah…. Because it not news. Every claim made by Birthers has been debunked and re-debunked; yet they continually re-hash the same old diatribe, frauds and forgeries. It’s as if they believe repetition will give their claims validity. Then everyone will know what they say is true, just as everyone KNOWS Bush and Chaney are responsible for the 9/11 disaster, Queen Elizabeth ordered the hit on Princess Diana, JFK was killed because he was about to expose the truth about UFO’s, and Elvis isn’t really dead. You don’t see many headlines on those topics either.

The truth is the entire Birther Movement has just about as much validity as all these other conspiracies. The facts are that Obama is an American citizen, and yes, “naturally” born in Hawaii. Even the Kenyan Embassy in Washington DC said, “Claims that Obama was born in Kenya are utter madness.” The basis of Birther claims of ineligibility seems to be that Barack Obama is not a Natural Born Citizen either because he was not born in the US, or because “both” his parents were not American Citizens, or both.

Well, we do know that Obama was born in the US, so lets look at this “both parent” thing. The Constitution of the US article 2 section 1 states: “No person except a natural born citizen of the United States at the time of the adoption of this constitution shall be eligible to the office of President”. But what does that really mean? Nowhere in the constitution is the term “natural born citizen” actually defined.

This in many ways is like a bible verse in that it must be “interpreted”. Just like with bible verse interpretations specific meanings are usually interpreted to suite ones own agenda. Logic would suggest that the rightful interpretation of what a natural born citizen is should be concluded by close examination of historical events. Also following the Constitution itself and the rulings from the Supreme Court of the United States.

Lets start with the “Dred Scott Decision” in 1857 the Supreme Court ruled that people of African decent imported into the US and held as slaves (or their descendants) could never be citizens of the US. So when the 13th amendment in 1865 freed all the slaves, that had never even been considered as people, in addition to white southerners getting their drawers in a knot over losing their chattel, a citizenship problem suddenly arose. 

Following the 13th amendment the Civil Rights Act of 1866 declared that all persons born in the US were American citizens, regardless of race, etc, etc. That was followed by the 14th amendment in 1868. Section 1 states: “All persons born or naturalized in the Unites States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof are citizens of the United States”. (Notice how it said “all persons” and made no declaration that both parents had to be citizens first)

In 1898 the Supreme Court ruled the same in US v. Wong Kin Ark, “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside." (And neither one of his parents were American Citizens)

All of this would suggest that Obama being born within the boundaries of the US, would in fact be a natural born American citizen. But the Birthers counter that with, “But..But.. his father was not an American so that makes him illegitimate”. Wrong again! See the 14th amendment and US v. Wong Kin Ark.

Or even refer to Title 8 of the US Code Section 1401, it defines people who are “citizens of the US at birth”, and what do you suppose the first thing listed is? Yep, you’ve got it, “Anyone born inside the United States”, also NOT stipulating that both parents had to be citizens first. (This combination of events is also what ultimately led to our immigration problem)


So the Birthers can whip that dead horse to dust if they want, and continue with “YeaBut, NoBut, YeaBut, NoBut" until the cows come home, that doesn’t change the fact that Obama was born in Hawaii and “is” legally eligible to be President according to all of the above. The only part of the Birther movement that is newsworthy is their endless soap opera antics, and bickering amongst themselves, and even then it’s only good for entertainment.

It is amazing how their followers have this almost desperate belief that this is in fact the biggest news story and the most horrific scandal of all time when nothing could be further from the truth. Especially when their so-called “leaders of the cause” have such tainted backgrounds themselves. It’s almost comical to watch all these “pots calling the kettle black” so to speak. They are a combination of frauds, felons, disbarred lawyers, criminals, and outright liars who spend their time accusing everyone else of being guilty of crimes.

So, can they use the “two parent” claim to boot Obama out of office? 
Computa says nnooooo.


And BTW, anyone interested in reading a more detailed legal analysis of the definition of a Natural born Citizen, please read the following:

Inciting Hate and Sedition, or Down Right Treason?


Orly Taitz, the so-called Queen of Birthism could very well end up with blood on her hands. As a lawyer she should be aware of the difference between sedition and treason. (Of course as a lawyer there are a lot of things she should know but apparently doesn’t.) On her blog inciting sedition is undoubtedly her primary goal, and nothing would make her happier than to have the entire nation rebel against not only President Obama, but also the entire US Government. She also absolutely believes that we should all do this based solely on her delusions of conspiracy, forged and or imaginary (but never actually proven or produced) so-called evidence.

Not that she can avoid making a fool out of herself every time she goes to court, (or opens her mouth in public) but she very meticulously monitors posts and comments on her blog. She makes absolutely sure that nothing is posted that doesn’t praise her as “Our Lady of Liberty”, or some such nonsense or posts from other delusional people feeding her more imaginary evidence. And of course she calls on all her tin-foil-hatters (a.k.a her primary research team) to investigate it all for her.

So there is no question that she has full knowledge of everything that is posted there. The following are some copied unaltered comments from her website:

If the courts will not take action for an unlawful situation, the elected officials will not take action for an unlawful situation, the justice department will not take action against an unlawful situation, the state governments will not take action against an unlawful situation, the state attorney generals will not take action against an unlawful situation what recourse is left to the citizens??
If all the above do not enforce the law why should the American citizens FOLLOW the law and stay peaceful?”

“IT IS WAY TOO LATE TO VOTE OR EXERCISE YOUR RIGHT TO FREE SPEECH
Carl F. Worden
November 11, 2009
(First paragraph)
I realize I could get arrested for this or be “disappeared”, but somebody needs to write these words and get it over with: It is way too late to vote or exercise your right to free speech if the goal is to restore our government to its constitutional intent. We will have to resort to war and force of arms if that goal is to be realized, and I know that is something a lot of you don’t want to read, but unfortunately that is the only remaining option left to the American people unless, of course, they are willing to simply lay back and let this government continue to do what it will.
(Last paragraph)
The only remaining question is this: Do we bother presenting our unconstitutional government with a Declaration of Independence of sorts, or do we just cut to the chase?”

If it takes riots in the streets to stand for the Constitution and kick an illegitimate President out of office, then bring it on. The civil war took close to 600,000 largely white men to bring freedom for all. Freedom from Tyranny costs a great price as always. The usurper could have avoided it all if he was an honest man. That makes two reasons to legally kick him out.
Friends of Truth”

As I said inciting sedition is one thing, but advocating violent and armed rebellion is treason, and by posting things like this she is absolutely advocating treason. It’s obvious her fan base is not the most literate bunch, but they are obviously disturbed and if any of these fools take up arms and hurt someone the fault will be hers, and if God forbid any blood gets spilled it will be on her hands. She would do well to keep her goons in check and stop advocating violence and encouraging treason before innocent people are hurt.

And she has the nerve to call herself an American.

“Hate In The Name Of God” Yea Buddy!


I always thought that being a Christian meant you based your life on the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. You know, love thy neighbor; love thy enemy, forgiveness, compassion, turn the other cheek, that sort of thing. Specifics though really depend on which branch of Christianity one affiliates with because of course they all interpret the teachings differently to suit their own agendas. (Not that I actually affiliate with any of them)

It seems now since we have a “Black” President in our “White” House, they not only think it’s justified to Hate In the Name Of God, but also to “publicly” pray for Barack Obama to die, and by golly they can even back it up with the bible. Just as they used the bible at one time to justify their ownership of slaves and how to keep women in their place. In fact the bible even outlined how slaves and women should be treated. (No shit, it’s in there, look it up!)

Of course that’s not to say that using God to justify hate is a new thing, people have been doing that since the beginning of time. Even in modern times there are many religious extremists that just seethe with hate. Some even condone and praise murder, (in the name of God of course). Recently there were tons of people “Praising God” when Scott Roeder (religious extremist) murdered Dr. George Tiller (whom they considered a heathen in the eyes of God) in cold blood. Gunned him down right in his own church no less.

Now, it would be politically incorrect and socially unacceptable for any of these racist and bigoted Christians to come right out and say what they really think about Obama, “That Negro (or their popular derogatory term for Negro) has no business being POTUS”, so they had to find another approach. They turned to their bible to find a way to “interpret” an answer because they just could not live with this disgust at having someone (even Sarah Palin referred to as) “Not like us” in the White House. The thought was absolutely intolerable.

Their answer?
Psalms 109

8 Let his days be few; and let another take his office.

(Which the bible follows in the very next verse with)

9 Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow.

There are also preachers (yes, actual men of God themselves) out there publicly praying for the death of Obama, and a whole slew of people following suite. I guess they all think that its justified to preach hate and pray for someone to die, since they claim God “hates” sin, sinners (and homosexuals), and will “strike them down”, even if “hate” itself is supposedly a sin. Which should make one wonder why God doesn’t hate himself for being a sinner, but we are dealing with the simple minded here that are following this particular train of thought.

Now with God and the bible on their side they have made a whole movement of praying for Obama to die. They not only have T-Shirts, mugs, bumper stickers and various other things for sale, but also websites where you can even “donate to the cause”. (Hell, may as well make a few bucks off it while they are at it, right? Jim and Tammy Faye  Bakker would be so proud.) You can see where Orly got her ideas of how to use make-up.

Although the bumper stickers and other items say “Pray for Obama Psalms 109.8” they do not actually specify verse 9, yet their meaning to me is quite clear. All you have to do is listen to some of those preachers out there that are publicly praying for Obama to die. You have Rev. James Manning from NY who thinks Obama is the antichrist and proclaims, “We can’t let him live” and calls for him to be jailed, hung and shot.
 
And what about Pastor Steven Anderson from Arizona who says he prays “Obama will get brain cancer, die and go to hell”. He also believes that watching the old re-runs of the Andy Griffith Show on TV will make you gay, because of course Gomer Pyle was played by Jim Nabors, and he WAS in fact gay, so there you have it.

Even Pastor Wiley Drake of California, and former Independent Party running mate of Alan Keys has publicly advocated for imprecatory prayers and prays for the death of the one he refers to as that “Usurper in the White House, B. Hussein Obama” (Yes, more Birthers, imagine that! Funny how they some how seem to think calling him by his middle name gives more justification to their hatred.) Though he has recently retracted that prayer. Apparently after conferring with Rev. Manning he has decided it would be more fun to see Obama tried for treason that see him die.

It’s really sad when you think about it; after all there are many good and decent people who happen to be Christians. However, those that use religion and God to justify hatred, bigotry and pray for anyone to die are a sorry lot, and they bastardize the very meaning of Christianity. If you ask me they are nothing but a bunch of no account hate mongers. So if you see one of those bumper stickers during your daily travels, feel free to give the driver a one-fingered solute as you pass by.

Secret Service Visits the Rev. Dr. Manning


You know I enjoy a good Birther laugh as much as the next person, after all you can’t help but laugh at crazy people and with Orly Taitz and her tin foil hatters a good laugh is pretty much all they are good for. But this Rev. Manning is a full-fledged psychopath, and apparently the Secret Service and a couple of NY detectives thought so as well and recently paid a little visit to Rev. Manning to discuss a few of his more colorful comments about President Obama.

Here is a link to a video with him calling for the tea partiers to go viral as well as for Obama to be “jailed, hung and shot.”

***I must warn you, attempting to watch this video is something like trying to drink water from a fire hose, so brace yourself***

On the website “The Political Carnival” there was evidently another video by Manning posted that has apparently been taken down where they document excerpts as follows:

(http://thepoliticalcarnival.blogspot.com/2009/10/video-if-we-allow-obama-to-live-america.html)

2:28 to 2:40
"If Obama lives, then the constitution, and America dies. Now listen to me very carefully, please hear me, please hear me: If we let Obama live, America dies..."

5:12 to 5:35
"What we need to be focused on, if we allow Obama to live, in his present state as a criminal, then America is torn apart. God knows America is gone. America is gone, if we allow Obama to continue, then the nation is gone, so which, which is it? Obama lives and America dies?

10:08 to 10:43
"Now what's it going to be? What's it going to be? Is it going to be Obama? He will live and ride off into the sunset as America's first African-American....President, which is a lie from the pit of hell. But are you gonna let that lie stand, and then the Constitution and America. I can tell you now. Five months from now America will no longer be. We must take immediate and decisive action now."

In what world is this man living? Certainly not a rational one, there is no question about that. If someone asked me what was wrong with this man I’d have to answer, “Apparently a lot!”

The really frightening thing about all this is that it’s not just one lone psychopath out there, if you look around there are lots of them. The difficult thing is to figure out which ones are the worst, or most dangerous. There are the religious extremists, like Manning, Wiley Drake, and Scott Roeder. Then there are the white supremacist, Neo-Nazis, skinheads, and all manors of crazy racist and fanatical people out there.

This includes a large portion of Birthers, and yes, while Orly Taitz and her cardboard eyelashes is indeed as they say “Batshit Crazy”, I don’t believe her to be as dangerous as some of these other people. Though she has posted some pretty hateful things on her website as well as calling for sedition and for people AND the military to openly revolt against the government. It really makes you wonder what this world is coming to.

The Southern Poverty Law Center has a map of hate groups in the US. It can be found at: http://www.splcenter.org/intel/map/hate.jsp The problem is while this may list the primary hate group activities, it doesn’t list, nor could it know about all the rogue crazies out there with websites that are networking with all the other crazies at large. Most of who have focused their hate, anger, and in some cases psychotic rage at President Obama.

The Internet has afforded these whacko’s with the ability to network like never before. They are all out there slowly stirring each other’s pot and as crazy as it sounds attempting to organize themselves. The question is which one of them is going to make the first “really” stupid move?

You know we laugh at the accusations of Obama having an army of Brown Shirts and secret FEMA concentration camps, but what he really needs is an army of “White Coats”, all armed with straight jackets and a shit load of padded rooms.

The Birther Movement in a Nutshell (Pun Intended)

After reading all the accusations (from those that claim to know the truth) on the various blogs relating to Orly Taitz, the Tin-Foil-Hat Brigade (a.k.a The Birthers) are claiming the following:

President Barack Obama was not born in Hawaii, but possibly Kenya, or maybe Indonesia. The birth certificate (BC) issued by the state of Hawaii is in fact a forgery, and the forged Kenya BC is actually the true BC. They also claim that even if he was born in Hawaii, which they say he wasn’t he’s still not a Natural Born American Citizen (NBAC) so he still can’t legally be President.

They also claim that Barack Obama Sr. is not really his father, his real father was Malcolm X, and his mother is not really his mother either. Now because BO Sr. was a British Citizen, BO Jr. is a British Citizen too even if BO Sr. is not his real father. Malcolm X who is his real father was born in Nebraska, but since BO Jr’s mom is not his real mom, but is in fact a felon, and no one knows who his real mother is, he’s still not a NBAC.

Even the “renowned” WND (World Nut Daily) website claimed BO was not a citizen and that his Hawaiian BC was a fake, then they said it wasn’t fake, but finally proclaimed it was fake. They all refer to BO Jr. as the “De Facto President” and claim that not only is he ineligible to be President but he is in fact guilty of murder, conspiracy, treason, and has used multiple names, passports and 39 different SSN’s, none of which is even close to reality.

Apparently this conspiracy to defraud the American people into accepting this “usurper” (another pet name) as President has actually been in place since 1961. That’s when BO’s American grandparents “planted” false birth announcements in the Hawaiian newspaper so someday he could prove he was born there and become President. They knew that had to do this so when his Kenyan Granny, who is not his actual Granny would tell the world (48 years later) that she was there when he was born in Kenya, they could use the announcements to prove he wasn’t.

People who live in the Birtherverse apparently have access to information the rest of us can’t access. They know for a fact that BO has spent in excess of $3 Million attempting to hide the “real” truth (as outlined here) from the American public. They also know for a fact that the entire US Government, the state of Hawaii, the UK, Kenya, everyone at FactCheck and PolitiCheck, all the US federal judges and most of the MSM are all in on the conspiracy. That’s a hell of a big conspiracy!

Other allegations include the fact that BO has an entire army of “Brown Shirts” that intend to send any political dissentients to one of the 600 secret FEMA concentration camps Obama has had built throughout this country. One of which located in Indiana has a gas chamber capable of gassing 3000 people a day. The only reason Birthers lose all the lawsuits they bring against Obama is because all of the judges are on Obama’s payroll, or because they are all threatened by the Brown Shirts. The Brown Shirts even forced Judge Land in Georgia to fine Orly Taitz $20,000 so Obama could use the money to help pay off all his lawyers.

The bottom line is (according to Birthers) Barack Obama is really a cokehead gay British Muslim working with terrorists to take over this country. He’s also a Socialist, a Nazi, a Marxist, and a Chicago thug who intends to guarantee abortions for all; death to seniors and the worst is he isn’t even really black.

Just for fun, here is a link to the video of Orly’s famous meltdown on MSNBC

Nuf said.

Now I grew up in the 70’s and we smoked some pretty good stuff back in those days, but I would LOVE to know what the hell they are smoking these days!
