Well, I have some good news and some bad news for you. The good news is that Dianna Cotter, aka The Dianna aka Freeper Danae, left Russia and Pravda and made her way back to America. Perhaps Jim Robinson of Free Republic made an impression when he verbally spanked her about writing in Pravda:
Don’t be an idiot. Continue attacking our conservative candidates with this nonsense and or our conservative FReepers you’re going to get the boot from FR. Take your fantasies elsewhere. America hating communist propaganda rag Pravda is appropriate. Wake up.96 posted on March 18, 2012 5:39:20 PM PDT by Jim Robinson (Rebellion is not just brewing, rebellion is here!!)”
The bad news is that she is still spinning the same old Birther dribble that she always does. Cotter is like a guitar student who just knows one chord, Em7/A, and every song she plays has the same weird, disturbing, half-bubble-off, sound. This time she graces The Western Center for Journalism with her dissonance. Her spin has become predictable. Here are a few excerpts:
Barack Obama Was A Foreign Student – American Media Threatened Into Silence
On March 7th, 2012, Pravda called out the U.S. press for its deliberate neglect of the largest scandal in modern American history. Maricopa County, Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio released credible forensic evidence that Barack Obama, presumed President of the United States, presented to the world a forged Birth Certificate on April 27th, 2011.
Since then, the scandal has only expanded. Former United States Postal Service worker Allen Hulton has recently come forward with compelling testimony given under Oath, which leads to only one conclusion: Barack Obama attended College in the United States as a Foreign Student.
Huh??? Compelling evidence which leads to only one conclusion??? You have to dig for it, because it isn’t directly expressed in her story. But you know what the COMPELLING EVIDENCE was??? A dead lady, Mrs. Ayers, told Postman Hulton back in the 1980’s or maybe the 1990’s that her son and his wife, Bill and Bernardine Ayers, were sponsoring a black foreign student. Postman Hulton says he met the black kid once, and he thinks it was Barack Obama.
That’s it. The Story of The Century. Some hearsay from a dead lady from 25-30 years ago. Perhaps Cotter just lacks imagination, because I can sure come up with a lot more than one conclusion. How about:
1. The Old Postman didn’t meet Barack Obama at all, but some other black kid.
2. The Old Postman is just mixed up and mis-remembers what Mrs. Ayers told him.
3. Mrs. Ayers was mixed up and just thought the kid was a foreign student.
4. The Old Postman is fibbing.
5. The Old Postman met Barack Obama, but he wasn’t the same black kid as the foreign student.
Gee, that is five conclusions I can reach, and I am not even warmed up. Cotter tries to give her story some steadier legs by adding the under Oath part. In the story, she also says:
Mr. Hu[l]ton, by signing an affidavit has subjected himself to laws regarding perjury, not something to be taken lightly as telling the truth is now for him a requirement of law.
Hmmm. Now let’s see, the Mrs. Ayers is dead, so there is no one to dispute what she may or may not have told Hulton. So exactly how much danger is there of anyone proving perjury when there were no witnesses and the other person is dead??? Zippo. But Cotter is not one to be bothered with actual thinking. For her it is just spin, spin,and spin.
The rest of the story may be found here, but it looks pretty much like a reprint of her March 29, 2012 Pravda article, except for the Update 3-29-2012 section found in the Pravda article:
You get the usual Cotter themes: Obama was a British citizen; Obama was an Indonesian citizen; The online legal search firm, Justia, scrubbed the links to the irrelevant case of Minor v. Happersett; Obama is threatening everybody; and the American press is scared to touch this. And a few others. But here is something interesting! It is very first sentence of her article, found above:
On March 7th, 2012, Pravda called out the U.S. press. . .
Did they??? Did they really??? Let’s see. Oh, I think she is right. I found the March 7th Pravda article. Here is the statement:
The American Press is deliberately hiding the evidence published on the internet about this defrauding of the American public and the deliberate evisceration of the Constitution of the United States. It is hiding Barack Obama’s Fraud as it has been revealed by a Sheriff in Arizona. The silence of the American press would be unbelievable if it weren’t so blatantly obvious.
It is nearly as egregious as the audacity of Obama’s fraud itself.
Well, if that is the same statement she is talking about, I guess Pravda did call us out. I wonder who the Ruskie was who wrote that??? Oh, here it is – – – Dianna Cotter???
Yes, that is right!!! Cotter called out the U.S. Press, and then makes a provocative change to where it reads like Pravda called out the U.S. Press. You know, the sad thing is that as sloppy as her journalism is, you really don’t know whether this was intentional or just more of the shoddiness we have come to expect from her.
But I wonder if her technique will work for me??? Yoohoo! Dianna Cotter!!! The American press is calling you out!!!
No. That just doesn’t feel right. Never mind.
Note 1: The Image. This is a 1905 photograph of Whirling Dervishes from the book, East and War, which I found at Wiki, here:
Note 2. Whirling Dervishes. Wiki says:
Sufi whirling (or Sufi spinning), (Arabic: الرقص الصوفي) is a form of Sama or physically active meditation which originated among Sufis, and which is still practiced by the Sufi Dervishes of the Mevlevi order. It is a customary dance performed within the Sema, or worship ceremony, through which dervishes (also called semazens) aim to reach the source of all perfection, or kemal. This is sought through abandoning one’s nafs, egos or personal desires, by listening to the music, focusing on God, and spinning one’s body in repetitive circles, which has been seen as a symbolic imitation of planets in the Solar System orbiting the sun.[
But, The Urban Dictionary says:
1. Whirling Dervish
(n.) A person whose behavior resembles a rapid, spinning object. These actions are often spastic fidgeting and incessant babbling. The actions of the whirling dervish are irritating and annoying, often exhausting other people in the immediate vicinity.
Note 3. Video. Since travel to the Mid East is not big on most people’s list of things to do, here is a youtube video of a Whirling Dervish dance. This is a short one, because after a while it can get kind of tedious:
Note 4. American Whirling Dervish Bonus. Dervishes were very popular in America, and I think Joseph Farah (???), of World Net Daily, makes a cameo appearance in this one:
