A couple of days ago, to the usual enormous fanfare, I admitted that what Obama’s lawyers were arguing openly in court had caused me finally to cast my lot with the Birthers. Here’s more on that score from The Examiner:
What could be the most shocking aspect of the situation, however, may be the fact that Obama and his attorneys have crafted an argument that truly boggles the mind.
In a direct assault on everything the citizens of the USA take for granted, in layman’s terms, his attorneys literally made the argument during a hearing on April 10th that because the document was so obviously faked and could not possibly be considered proof of citizenship, the document itself should not be allowed as evidence in the case.
Obama is now basically asserting that only a legitimate document should be allowed as evidence in this case and therefore this one should be thrown out due to the fact that it’s not real. The Judge agreed.
In what may turn out to be one of the biggest scandals in the history of the United States, the Obama administration itself has now virtually admitted to High Crimes and Misdemeanors and to deceiving the public into believing a lie that was ironically intended to distract awareness from the actual issue that truly determines his eligibility, or lack thereof.
If we had a functional Fourth Estate in this country, this would be the lead news on every TV news network and at the top of the front page on every newspaper, but we do not. It takes no particular courage for me to don the mantle of Birther, because I figure I’m journalistically unemployable, anyway. People like Monte Kuligowski at American Thinker, however, might have been before optimistically reviewing the stated of the issue:
For several years, an Orwellian-type fear of being “marginalized” held reporters and pundits back from questioning Barack Obama’s eligibility to hold the office of the presidency. To raise an eyebrow at the bizarre secrecy of Obama was off-limits. To question whether the historic definition of “natural born citizen” applied to Obama was taboo.
The era of fear, however, is happily winding down. It will take some time for this realization to fully take hold. But make no mistake: the tables have turned.
Like it or not, the ground has shifted, and it cannot shift back. The evidence of Obama’s forgeries is not going away.
Up until this point, Mr. Obama controlled everything, including the talking points and burden of proof.
Rather than simply produce certified paper copies for state election officials and make the original available for officials to inspect in Hawaii, Obama played games with his purported birth certificate. We were told for three years that Obama’s birth certificate had been posted online in 2008 — though it turns out that it was a scant certification. In 2010, when confronted with the alarming doubts of the American people, Mr. Obama lamented to a sympathetic Brian Williams of NBC: “I can’t spend all my time with my birth certificate plastered on my forehead.” The following year, out of left field, on April 27, 2011, Obama “released” the elusive birth certificate by posting a now-discredited file image online.
This time he wasn’t teasing. It was “proof positive.” Mr. Obama, in his robotic style, barked that it was time to stop the “silliness” and move on.
What we get instead from the media is the Governor of Montana asserting that some of Mitt Romney’s forebears vamoosed down to Mexico in order to escape from a US crackdown on Mormon polygamy, though they seem themselves not to have practiced it. As with Dog-gate, the humor lies in the fact that Obama’s father took multiple wives and may have been, in our quaint parlance, a (dog-eating) bigamist. Obama’s generosity to his Kenyan half-brother is legendary, but we’ll set that aside for the moment, simply noting that he’s generous with US aid to Kenya, where his ‘cousin’ is the Socialist Prime Minister:
Raila Odinga was later elected prime minister of Kenya – after days of bloodshed.
Since he moved into the White House Obama’s still helping Odinga.
Kenya is enjoying a spike in Obama administration funded projects.
As always, he’s quite generous with our money when it comes to supporting the Socialist Faithful, and particularly those with family ties.
Odinga is his name-o. Socialists ate my baby . . . ‘s future.
Let’s consider the rhetorical doggate-ism of the revelation that Obama’s birth certificate, represented on his official site as proof that he’s eligible for the office he holds, is, according to his own lawyers, inadmissible in a court of law because it is fraudulent—and then consider how his campaign is going to argue that something on Mitt Romney’s official website is false. It is at once hilarious, outrageous and deeply saddening, especially that he’s not being impeached. If you’re a blogger, or a journo, and you’re not reporting it because you’re afraid quick-witted Jay Carney will mock you, (not to put too fine a point on it, but) f*ck you.
Larwyn’s Linx selects as quote of the day this, from Mark Levin:
“Obama, it would seem, wants to deny to others what he will not deny to himself. He wants to deny to the children of others what he will not deny to his own children. He wants to amass riches, but he doesn’t want you to amass wealth. He doesn’t mind private school for his own children, but he minds it for your children. He doesn’t mind eating whatever he wants to eat, but he minds what you eat. He doesn’t mind taking that 747 one frivolous trip after another, one self-serving fundraising after another, but he minds what you drive and how much fuel you use. And we can go on and on.”
How do you like your dog, Mr. Levin?
UPDATE: After decades of manufacturing false ones, and suppressing true ones, The Chicago Tribune has declared facts dead. FUCT. I’ve never seen a more whorish case of crocodile tears, and I hope never again to have to.
To the shock of most sentient beings, Facts died Wednesday, April 18, after a long battle for relevancy with the 24-hour news cycle, blogs and the Internet. Though few expected Facts to pull out of its years-long downward spiral, the official cause of death was from injuries suffered last week when Florida Republican Rep. Allen West steadfastly declared that as many as 81 of his fellow members of the U.S. House of Representatives are communists.
Where did he get that information, Tribune? Why don’t you take it up with the DSA? Why don’t you analyze the differences between them and ‘communists’? Did they, or did they not, represent their document as fact? You’re in damned Chicago, after all. Should be an easy thing to check it out, but . . . you won’t.
Why don’t you go find the real killer, OJ?
I’m so sick of this shite I could hurl. I’m just going to start personally boycotting any company or organization that holds a conference or convention in any of these three cities: Chicago, San Fransisco, Vegas. I’m sure I’ll be adding to that list, soon.
Just look what your long history of truth-telling has done to your city, jackwagon.
