Many people think the Birther movement was largely de-fused by Obama’s release of his long form birth certificate in April 2011. I am one of those people. But, we were not “de-fused” because we failed, but because we succeeded. Unrelenting pressure from us is what eventually forced Obama to acknowledge that he was not a KING, but a PRESIDENT, and accountable to the people. Obama coughed up his long form, and that satisfied most people.
But, there are TWO groups of people who were not satisfied. The First Group are the remnants of the Common Sense Suspicious Birthers who think there is something fishy about the image of the long form put on the White House website. One of the layers in that image looks like this:
Sooo, while I think Obama did this ON PURPOSE to keep the Birther issue alive, who can really blame people for still being suspicious??? I mean, just imagine what people would be saying if George Bush had finally put up a document called Weapons of Mass Destruction List, and one of the layers read “Piggly Wiggly Shopping List“ Would anybody blame people for having doubts whether or not it was legitimate??? I think NOT!!! But let’s look anyway. Suppose this was on George Bush’s White House website. (If you click on the image, it gets bigger.):
And, then somebody did whatever and found this in one of the layers:
And suppose this had followed 3 years of a refusal to release the List of Weapons of Mass Destruction? The layered image would not prove the top layer was false, but would people be paranoid conspiracy theorists to have doubts? I don’t think so, even if I did not agree with them. Maybe it proves forgery, or maybe it just proves incompetence.
Whoever is right, none of the possible reasons for the squirrely image on the White House website are very good (Where have I heard that line of reasoning before???) Either Obama is incompetent, and can’t even put a “flattened” image on the Internet, or Obama is an incompetent forger who leaves the evidence IN PLAIN VIEW, or Obama is SLIMY and being intentionally divisive in keeping this issue alive for political purposes.
But there is a real potential stigma that attaches to this branch of Birtherism right now, because people who don’t follow this issue and who are not deeply into all the minutia, will be easy to convince that Birthers just won’t believe anything that Obama presents. They will be easy pickings for the people who argue, “Birthers demanded the long form —they got it—now they don’t believe that. Nothing will ever satisfy these people!” And they will have good company because many people’s suspicions, including mine, were answered when Obama finally coughed up the long form in April 2011. While I have not found any good recent polls, the number of Birthers and other doubters, seems to be way down from the 58% of people who had some degree of doubt where Obama was born this time last year.
The Second Group is what I laughingly refer to as The Vattle Birthers, because of their silly insistence that Emerich de Vattel was the inspiration for the term natural born citizen in English and American common law. (Which, as I have pointed out before in my Internet Article here —Emerich de Vattel–A Vampire???, would have been pretty hard to do since the English law first started saying this in 1608 or even earlier, and Vattel wasn’t even born until 1714, over a hundred years later.) The Vattle Birthers are universally ridiculed by both The Left and The Right for their crank legal theory that being a natural born citizen requires two citizen parents. In my opinion, they are also conspiracy theorists, since for their theory to have been overlooked would have required the silence of Obama’s opposition in the 2008 elections in addition to the silence of nearly every lawyer, judge, and law professor in the county, including the conservative Republican ones.
Sooo, what you have left are the remaining die-hard suspicious Birthers and the kooky Vattle Birthers. Now, we’re getting to the point of this Internet Article. What is it that will make 2012 the Year of the Birther??? What is it that is going to cause an explosion in the news coverage of Birthers, to where the average American is convinced the woodwork is teeming with rabid roach-like Birthers- – -where, when you see one, there are really a million there, peeking out from under the toaster, that you don’t see??? Easy—the Presidential election.
Obama has absolutely nothing else to campaign on. The Economy SUCKS!!! Unemployment is at 9.1% or 17% depending on how you measure it. Nobody expects anything to improve before the election. The wars are still going on and Gitmo is open. Probably, somewhere, somebody is secretly being water-boarded. Obamacare is on life-support and seeing white lights and dead relatives. Then you have Solyndra and the whole green job thingy where the only green so far is the 535 million bucks that got flushed. The Fast and Furious ATF Gun scandal, is turning into how fast and furiously Eric Holder can shred documents. A person could write a book here on how Obama has screwed up.
Much of this was predictable for anybody who read the Internet Articles here, and grasped the concept of the KISS Matrix. Suffice it to say, Obama’s performance has been so bad, some people are questioning whether or not he will even run for re-election. But what happens if he does run??? What ever can the Talking Heads, Liberals, and Obotski find to discuss to draw attention away from the reality of The One???
Well the first standby is Racism. That’ a given and has already started. Lawrence O’Donnell, the white-as-rice smarmy little twerp on MSNBC is already lecturing Herman Cain, a black man who grew up in the South during the 1960’s about what Cain should have been doing to pass O’Donnell’s personal “Is he black enough?” test.
The next standby is of course, Intelligence, or should I say politically correct Intelligence. The left side of the political spectrum is convinced of their intellectual and moral superiority. So any candidate who does not believe in human caused global warming, or thinks the dude popularly known as GOD, may have had a little something to do with how the human race got here, is in for high powered teasing. Think Sarah Palin here. Her record as governor of Alaska did not matter. The we’re close to Russia thingy trumps her record. Meantime, Obama gets a pass when he misses the date by a few years over to the wedding in England. No problemo– – -he’s from Hah-vard.
But there is a place where these two liberal standbys meet, at least in the minds of the Liberals and Obotski —BIRTHERISM!!! They already think that Racism is at the core of Birtherism, that Birthers just don’t like the scary black man in The White House. After all, no other President in the history of America has ever had sooo great a demand put upon him as making a phone call and coughing up a $14 document. And how stupid someone must be to doubt the authenticity of Obama’s long form, even if one layer of it does look like it got rode hard and put away wet by a bottle of White Out.
This is the Perfect Storm of Racism and Ignorance upon which the MSM, Left, and Obama must set sail. What you will see are numerous shows, most probably on MSNBC, with a Birther twist. Herman Cain is already attracting these lightning bolts. Why??? Because some of his Internet Articles appear on World Net Daily.
Sooo, look for Birthers to be a big and hot on television and blogs this year. This will probably be the year with the most Birther appearances ever. The MSM hosts will try to portray Birthers as racist idiots, and will talk over whoever appears on the show. So, my advice is, stick to the basics!!! If you are a regular Common Sense Suspicious Birther, stick to the Connecticut social security number, and the funky layer in the White House image, and stress that it is a EITHER-OR situation. Either Obama forged it or Obama can’t tie his shoes right.
Focus on 90 lawsuits without discovery, because who goes through 90 law suits without an ulterior motive. If the cost isn’t in the millions for the lawsuit, ask the host how much they think got spent on 90 lawsuits. Even at $2,000 or $3,000 each, it is a lot of money. Plus, stay away from the two citizen parent stuff, because that is poison. Any lawyers on the show will tear you up, and be right in doing so. Plus, you do not want to poison the well for Mark Rubio and Bobby Jindal.
If you are a Vattle Birther, there is no helping you because you are crazy. If you have any sense of decency, please change your names to become Obama Constitutional Scholars. The name will fit you better because Obama can’t get anything right, either.
NOTE: For the conspiracy theorist minded, I enlarged the “G” in George Bush’s name from the Weapons of Mass Destruction letter above, and this is what it looks like. I am not sure if this was intentional on his part, or just an artifact:
