Well, the World Net Daily (WND) – Cold Case Posse (CCP) moron-making machine has done claimed another victim. This time a writer named Diana West. She seems like an intelligent person, and has even written a book. But she must have gotten into a pitcher-full of the WND – CCP Kool Aid. Here are a few excerpts from what she wrote, with a link to her blog, which I stumbled across on World Net Daily:
Silence of The Lapdogs
I ask you: Have you read in your local paper about the technical evidence that led the posse’s three retired criminal investigators and two attorneys to conclude that the birth certificate image White House officials uploaded at the White House website on April 27, 2011, did not originate in a paper format, but rather was created (forged) as an electronic file on a computer?
Have you seen on network or cable news the video clip (one of six posse videos at YouTube) re-creating exactly how an additional fraud might have been committed to forge the president’s Selective Service registration card? Heard even conservative talk radio discussing the posse’s discovery that immigration files in the National Archives recording overseas arrivals into Hawaii are missing from the week of Obama’s 1961 birthday? Or about the retired mailman’s affidavit attesting that the mother of ex-Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers enthusiastically told him that she helped with “foreign student” Barack Obama’s education?
I know my ears pricked up when, watching the posse’s press conference online, I heard lead investigator Michael Zullo explain that the 1961 Hawaiian newspaper listings of Barack Obama’s birth confirm nothing because the posse “can prove beyond a doubt” that these newspapers announced arrivals of foreign babies as well as native-born. Zullo also announced the posse had “documented evidence of two adopted individuals who were breathing three years prior” and were similarly listed as newborn infants. Heard anything about that?
“1984″-style, we mustn’t question. We mustn’t look. We certainly mustn’t look at questions that cross the narrative of authority. What are we, free people?
Here is the link:
Her blog is well-written, and she even has a cute picture of the Marx Brothers which is supposed to represent all us lapdogs. But the problem is, she has it all backwards. It is actually she and the Birthers who are laying there supinely on the settee and chewing on Milk Bones. It is the Anti-Birthers and Obots who are doing all the real questioning. For example:
What crime is the CCP investigating? Taking Pixels across state lines for immoral purposes???
Why didn’t the CCP just contact Hawaii if they are unsure where Obama was born???
Why did the CCP involve WND and Jerry Corsi in their investigation???
Why did the CCP and Corsi have a pre-existing book deal???
What effect did the book deal have on the findings of the CCP???
What makes the Postman’s testimony the least bit credible when he can’t remember when, or names, and most of what he says is hearsay from a long-dead source???
This list could go on and on, and perhaps if Diana West had any real curiosity, she would be asking some of these questions rather than just repeating the WND line that this is an earth-shattering event which the MSM is ignoring. And, as I pointed out to Jeffrey T. Kuhner of The Washington Examiner, the underlying premise that this story is being ignored is false. See here, for a link to the Obama Conspiracy Theories article:
I hope that Diana West is merely new to all this Birther stuff, and momentarily overcome by all the new information. Those of us who have been covering it for a while are a lot more cynical when the Birthers start howling that they have found something new. We have been there – done that way too many times with them.
West appears to have some writing ability, and her book, The Death Of The Grown-Up, sounds very good. It echoes a theme I have often heard from my father. I may even check it out myself. I hope she gets off this idiotic Birther foolishness before she shoots her credibility in both feet.
Note 1. That Dog (or Cold Case Posse) Don’t Hunt. The Urban dictionary says about the idiom:
1. That dog don’t hunt
An obviously faulty endeavor; also as ~ /won’t hunt/, predictive of failure.
No go, non-starter
As he faced the blank stares of the members following his proposal, someone whispered off camera, “Well. That dog don’t hunt.”
