Well, it seems that Director Joel Gilbert, who produced the sordid DVD, Dreams from My Real Father, is now mailing free copies of the DVD into Ohio and other places. But, the really fun story here seems to be down in the comments section at ORYR, as you will see later. However, first:
The story is at ObamaReleaseYourRecords, and the headline there is
While the overall Birther reception is enthusiastic, there is one Birther down in the comment section who is suspicious that this is a Double Reverse Whammy, and Gilbert’s whole point is to sabotage the stupid two citizen parent theory. Because, if Frank Marshall Davis is really Obama’s father, and not the guy from Kenya, then horror of horrors, Obama is a natural born citizen after all!
Isn’t this ironic? Gilbert invents this delusional conspiracy theory tale, and darned if his paranoid and delusional Birther audience doesn’t start inventing their own. Birther Bog starts the ball rolling:
OK Listen up! Gilbert’s assertion of Obama having a different father is a cleverly disguised damage control in reverse. The true intent is to couple Obama with a father who is an American Citizen! This is propaganda to diffuse and negate the fact that Obama’s real father is not an American Citizen which therefor causes Obama to be ineligible! Think folks, think! Gilbert s a MOLE!

Joel Gilbert’s DVD mailing blitz is propaganda to cause belief in Obama having a different father than the one that makes Obama ineligible to be President! Gilbert is a MOLE. Expose him! It may allow Obama to switch ships from the one which he is on currently. That one is sinking due to him not being a “natural born citizen” because of his true father being an Indonesian citizen. No one is contesting that fact.

Then, other Birthers join in the insanity, chasing down their own possible moles, frauds, and traitors, such as Martha Trowbridge:
@Anonymous at 4:17 PM
I’m afraid Mario Apuzzo, whom I consider one of the most principled lawyers working to uncover Obama’s ineligibility may have given Trowbridge’s idea too much exposure.
I personally became quite interested in her blog posts, but I now regret that because ultimately she chose to hold all her cards. Her long absence of late I think can only be understood as implying that she didn’t have any credible evidence after all.
If she had gathered solid evidence and possessed any integrity she would have released that evidence by now. She claims to have turned it over to authorities, I believe; however, that was months ago and no authorities have spoken up.
If she has remained silent in the hope that delaying the timing for her disclosure would produce maximum political leverage, I think she has waited a bit too long by now. The only possible advantage to be gained was arguably by waiting until Obama was the official DNC nominee–in order to prevent the Dems from having a quick fall-back candidate.
The nomination was two weeks ago and still Trowbridge remains silent. While I do not know her to be a fraud, I can now only assume for all practical purposes that she is.
Nevertheless, I am grateful for Gilbert’s film and glad it’s getting out. And, for that guy who is trying to say Gilbert is a mole, I would echo the sentiments of others: whether he’s technically eligible or not, simply proving that the White House website has published a forged Birth Certificate, which he continues to hide behind, should be more than sufficient to impugn him enough to utterly dash any hope he has of electability.
Martha, if you’re still out there and you still have secrets, don’t wait any longer. You are begging us to regard you as a fraud who deserves to be called out and dismissed as either horribly negligent or as one who seeks to subvert the cause of patriotism.

and Birther John Doe, Sr. even digs up the Dead Breitbart to give him a whack:
John Doe Sr. said…[Reply]
“soetor hussein’s indonesian citizenship will soon be exposed by breitbart.”
If someone is looking for defense of Obama, I’d suggest Breitbart.com and not Joel Gilbert.
The Breitbart website apologized for revealing the 1991 booklet in which Obama described himself as born in Kenya. Breitbart said they thought he was lying….so, even if Obama tells the truth if he says the wrong thing….he is lying. That is how well the Alinsky demonization of “birthers” has worked.

and Birther CanTone turns on Donald Trump and Karl Rove and gives his Pod People point and screech:
Well there’s only 6 more weeks to go. I really thought Trump would have said something by now. I’m sure Rove silenced him at the convention. But Trump doesn’t owe the GOP anything. I didn’t think hed mind embarrassing the R. Party. He knows what we do as does the GOP but I thought Trump would say it anyway. Looks like I was wrong. We are fucked.
September 19, 2012 7:18 PM
I’ve said before and I’ll say it again. I don’t care what they find. These judges are cowards and the (Karl Rove) GOP is happy to wait n see if they win in Nov. I think the GOP had rather lose than say anything. It’s up to us to do something. I’m sure someone will disagree. They always do. If enough people cared”like we do” maybe we could change things but sadly, not many care.
September 19, 2012 2:50 PM
I guess it is only natural that they turn on each. After all, they have met with defeat in every court challenge, and blaming the judges this many times comes off as silly. The Republican Party was so embarrassed that during its convention, it crammed them in a dark closet with a flashlight, a blankie, and a box of Fruit Loops and locked the door until the cameras went away. The September 22nd Birfapalooza couldn’t sell enough tickets to come off even in the Tea Party rich state of Arizona. Courts are beginning to assess them costs for wasting judicial time. And to top it all off, they couldn’t even prevail in Kansas with a Republican-stacked board.
While they are making some inroads selling the Birther silliness to the masses, they can not gain any real official traction. So there must be someone else to blame for all the losses. God Forbid, they should ever take a real hard look at their idiotic theories and suspicions.
Note 1. The Images. These are from the 1956 Academy Award winning film in the Genre’d Confusion category, The Mole People. Here is a great place to read about it:
Note 2. Squeeky Suspicions. I wonder if the “Anonymous” in the Martha Trowbridge comment above is Mario Apuzzo, Esq.??? It has that “self-serving” feel to it. He bit on the Bari Shabazz thing, and then there was nothing. If it is him, he would do himself a service to openly renounce that nonsense, even if Martha asks for her Man of the Year Award back.
Note 3. Words: Mole:
A small burrowing insectivorous mammal with dark velvety fur, a long muzzle, and very small eyes
A spy who achieves over a long period an important position within the security defenses of a country
Someone within an organization who anonymously betrays confidential information
Eat Their Own. A reference to cannibalism, and mindless feeding. Here is a good Internet Article:
Note 4. Another masterpiece of Birther legal theory which probably destroys Gilbert’s thesis of blood transmission of philosophical beliefs from father to son:
Anon 2:03pm has it right. Citizenship is established at birth and not at conception. Assuming that Obama Senior was the legal father at birth, then it is his citizenship which was passed on to Obama Junior, and not that of the biological father.
