Scat Scratch Fever??? (Or, Ted Nugent Goes Out On A Limb!!!)

tarzan leopard woman

He Didn’t Need To Worry . . . She Was DEFINITELY Doing It For Free

Well, Ted Nugent done went and fell onto the Birther Turnip Truck.  Here is a piece of his latest rant from World Net Daily:

And with all due respect, your holy phoniness, who can’t see the terminal phoniness of wasting more tax dollars with more phony charges against George Zimmerman in defiance of your own FBI investigation and the same exhaustive evidence that proved his obvious innocence to the jury of his peers and everyone paying attention who was not blinded by your phony racism?

And we mustn’t forget your phony Nobel Peace Prize, or your phony real estate scammaster ripoff artist Tony Rezko, or your phony claims that your phony “Affordable Healthcare” scam will make our healthcare system cheaper and better when just the opposite is guaranteed.

And let’s all be honest here; more of us believe in the American hero Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s thorough investigation into your phony birth certificate and phony history than the phony media’s smoke and mirrors.

http://www.wnd.com/2013/07/the-greatest-phony-americas-ever-known/

This is a shame, because Ted was on a great rant, most of which I agree with. Then, he had to go into Birther LaLa Land with the idiotic Cold Case Posse stuff. This is another case of what I call Pixel Pox, where the amount of technobabble overwhelms the senses. People tend to believe the phony report about forgery, because they do not have the time, inclination, or expertise to unravel the volume of silliness. Ted Nugent is a smart person, with good sense, and I am pretty sure that if he actually understood what is in the alleged report, and the fact that it means absolutely squat, then he would change his mind.

Sooo, Ted, if you are listening, here’s the skinny. There wasn’t any evidence of forgery. The Cold Case Posse just couldn’t duplicate the manner in which a copy of Obama’s long form was uploaded to the net. They have not proven that any piece of information on the form is false, or materially altered. In Deputy Zullo’s own words:

There is not enough evidence to convict him on jaywalking … let alone anything else.”

Please Ted, consider me the “doctor”, and consider this “the cure.”

Note 1. The Image. This is from the exciting 1946 film, Tarzan and the Leopard Woman. As Wiki notes:

Tarzan and the Leopard Woman was a 1946 action film based on the Tarzan character created by Edgar Rice Burroughs and portrayed by Johnny Weissmuller. Travelers near Zambezi are being killed, apparently by leopards. Tarzan immediately doubts that leopards are the problem. At the same time, Tarzan, Jane, and Boy take in Kimba, a boy who claims to have become lost in the jungle. Kimba (Tommy Cook) is the brother of Queen Lea, leader of a leopard cult.

Kimba has a goal of his own: to take the heart of Jane (Brenda Joyce) a deed that would make him a warrior in the eyes of the cult. The Leopard Men wear leopard skins that form a cowl and cape, with iron claws attached to the back of each hand. Queen Lea (Acquanetta) wears a headband, wrist bands, ankle bands, halter top and miniskirt made of leopard skin. As “Variety” put it: “She displays plenty of what it takes to stir male interest and handles her acting chores adequately.”  The plot is summed up by these lines spoken by Tarzan (about Cheeta):

                           “If an animal can act like a man, why not a man like an animal?”

There is even an Arizona car dealer connection and some questionable birth issues!

The actress is Acquanetta (July 17, 1921 – August 16, 2004), nicknamed “The Venezuelan Volcano,” was a B-movie actress known for her exotic beauty. Although accounts differ, Acquanetta claimed she was born Burnu Acquanetta in Ozone, Wyoming. Orphaned by her Arapaho parents at the age of 2, she lived briefly with another family before being taken in by an artistic couple with whom she remained until she made the choice to live independently at the age of 15.

Acquanetta started her career as a model in New York City with Harry Conover. She signed with Universal Studios in 1942 and acted mostly in B-movies, including Tarzan and the Leopard Woman, Arabian Nights, The Sword of Monte Cristo, and Captive Wild Woman, in which Universal attempted to create a female monster movie franchise with Acquanetta as an ape.

She retired from movies in the 1950s after marrying Jack Ross, a car dealer. They settled in Mesa, Arizona, and she returned to a degree of celebrity by appearing with Ross in his local television advertisements,[4] and also by hosting a local television show called Acqua’s Corner that accompanied the Friday late-night movies. She and Ross had four children, and divorced in the 1980s.

Acquanetta also authored a book of poetry, The Audible Silence, illustrated by Emilie Touraine (Flagstaff, AZ): Northland Press, 1974. In 1987, the all-girl band The Aquanettas adopted (and adapted) their name from hers.

Note 2. The Title and Caption. This is based on lyrics from Ted Nugent’s hit, Cat Scratch Fever. As is the last sentence of the article. Scat is a nice word for “poop.” Here are the lyrics:

Are The Birthers Gaslighting Themselves???

gas flame_phixr

After Eating 32 Ounces Of Beans, Carl Gallups Demonstrates Advanced Gas Lighting Techniques

Well, Poo Poo Simmons has discovered Gaslighting! Here are a few excerpts. First, we get The Buildup Of Tension:

EYE OPENER! The Obama BC Fraud Technique Revealed

Are YOU Being ‘Gaslighted?’   YES – you are…

PPSIMMONS: Does this technique explain the Obama Fraud case frustration?  Read on…we think your eyes will be opened.

Next, we get some Basic Gaslighting Theory:

GASLIGHTING – From Wikipedia

Gaslighting is a form of mental abuse in which false information is presented with the intent of making a victim doubt his or her own memory, perception, and sanity. Instances may range simply from the denial by an abuser that previous abusive incidents ever occurred, up to the staging of bizarre events by the abuser with the intention of disorienting the victim.

The term “gaslighting” has been used colloquially since at least the 1970s to describe efforts to manipulate someone’s sense of reality. In a 1980 book on child sex abuse, Florence Rush summarized George Cukor’s 1944 film version of Gas Light, and writes, “even today the word [gaslight] is used to describe an attempt to destroy another’s perception of reality.” The term was further popularized in Victor Santoro’s 1994 book Gaslighting: How to Drive Your Enemies Crazy, which outlines ostensibly legal tactics the reader might use to annoy others.

Then, we get some alleged examples, including:

6. Gov’t: No, we did not forge the Birth Certificate of the POTUS. Yes, the multilayer, computer generated, wrong-information document is the real thing! Yes, Obama really is a citizen of the U.S. Yes, he really is constitutionally qualified to hold office….

Gov’t when caught:  You silly nillys! You will NEVER catch us on this one!  Not a single congressman, MSM person, Governor, or AG will touch it!  Why?   See numbers 1-3 above!   You silly nillys!

Gov’t when REALLY caught: Okay, the BC was forged and fabricated. But we think that Gallups and Zullo did it! Maybe we need to lock ’em up – you know for national security reasons!  You silly nillys!

Finally, we get the hook-setting conclusion:

OOPS!  You’ve been gaslighted!

http://ppsimmons.blogspot.com/2013/07/eye-opener-obama-bc-fraud-technique.html

Like most Birthers on most things, Poo Poo misses the whole point of gaslighting. First, he does not show any example where the Gov’t presents any false information about a pre-existing memory or perception. That is what gaslighting is all about. In the 1944  movie, Gaslight, a picture disappears from the walls of the house, and Gregory(Boyer) says that Paula(Bergman) took it, but Paula has no recollection of having done so.  BUT, Paula had a pre-existing memory and perception of the picture being there, and no  memory of having moved it. Gregory provided the false information that she moved it.

Poo Poo Simmons, the other Birthers, and most of the rest of the world have no pre-existing memory or perception of any Obama birth certificate prior to its presentation on the Internet. To constitute gaslighting, the original short form or long form presented on the Internet would first have to be changed, or withdrawn, and then the Gov’t would have to convey false information to the Birthers that it had not been either changed or ever there in the first place. Which the Gov’t clearly has not done.

The examples given by Poo Poo, assuming arguendo that they were correct, would simply constitute run-of-the-mill lies or falsehoods, not gaslighting. Sooo, why is Poo Poo Simmons even making the childish and overblown claim of gaslighting??? Like most QUACKS, it is the appearance of intelligence and expertise that is important. Poo Poo is simply trying to make himself look smarter than he really is. You see the same thing when Mario Apuzzo, Esq. tries to cobble Logical Syllogisms into his Birther legal theories when such techniques are totally inappropriate in situations where the major premises themselves which are at issue. (See Note 1, below.)

But, by calling it gaslighting, then the whole argument takes on a sinister cast where Birthers can play the innocent victims. And Poo Poo can assume the role of the wise and intelligent voice of authority who reveals the evil plan. Such is not only incorrect, it is almost the opposite of the truth. The reality is, that it is the Birthers who are closer to gaslighting both Birthers and non-Birthers. Let me give you just two examples.

1. Most of us have some memory of high school civics class, and no memory whatsoever of anybody called Emer de Vattel. The Birthers try to supplant our non-existent memory with false memories of Vattel and his alleged two citizen parents theory of natural born citizenship. There are actually some people who now claim to remember being taught about Vattel in this light, and absolutely NO TEXTBOOKS which support that memory.

2. Most of us who follow this issue have a memory and perception of listening to and reading Deputy Mike “The Arizona Kid” Zullo telling us that there wasn’t enough evidence to convict Obama of jaywalking, much less anything else. Now, the Birthers are trying to convince us that Zullo is on the verge of a major breakthrough not because of any new discoveries, but by access to Very Important Persons. This, of course must supplant our previous memory not through denial, or claim of mistake, but repetition.

Note that I used the wiggle phrase, closer to gaslighting, because I am hesitant to call either of my hypotheticals pure examples of gaslighting. They are probably better characterized as primitive attempts at spinning, with a heavy side order of plain old lying. I would submit that if the Birthers feel frustrated and feel doubtful of their sanity, and suspect someone of mental abusing them, then they should simply look in the nearest mirror. Because they are doing this to themselves.

Does anybody else smell rotten eggs???

Note 2. Gaslighting. Here are some better examples of gaslighting from the Wiki article on the 1944 movie, Gaslight:

After Alice’s things are packed away in the attic and the door blocked, things take a turn for the bizarre. At the Tower of London, Paula loses a brooch that Gregory had given her, despite its having been stored safely in her handbag. A picture disappears from the walls of the house, and Gregory says that Paula took it, but Paula has no recollection of having done so. Paula also hears footsteps coming from above her, in the sealed attic, and sees the gaslights dim and brighten for no apparent reason. Gregory suggests that these are all figments of Paula’s imagination.

Gregory does everything in his power to isolate his wife from other people. He allows her neither to go out nor to have visitors, implying he is doing so for her own good, because her nerves have been acting up, causing her to become a kleptomaniac and to imagine things that are not real. On the one occasion when he does take her out to a musical gathering at a friend’s house, he shows Paula his watch chain, from which his watch has mysteriously disappeared. When he finds it in her handbag, she becomes hysterical, and Gregory takes her home. She sees why she should not go out in public.

Grace Vuoto Falls For A Crock!!! (And Catches The Pixel Pox!!!)

Sometimes, What Happens In The Caiman Islands, Should Just Stay In The Caiman Islands

Well, another allegedly intelligent person done fell into Birther Madness trap. Her name is Grace Vuoto, and she is a big wig over at the Burke Institute For America. I found her silliness scanning through Poo Poo Simmons’ website. Here are a few excerpts, and the full article is at the link below:

There is a problem with President Barack Obama’s long-form birth certificate: It’s a forgery, say multiple forensic experts who have examined it. A report detailing the evidence will soon be presented to Congress.

Then she reiterates a bunch of Zullo Crap and concludes with:

What many in the media fail to grasp is that so-called “birthers” would rather be wrong than right. It is more upsetting for many of them to believe that this kind of crime can be committed than that it was not.

The difference between a conspiracy theory and a crime is that a conspiracy theory cannot stand against the test of forensic evidence. Those who dismiss this investigation as merely “kooky” must answer these questions: Are leading experts in their field who have provided their professional assessment to a criminal investigation merely to be ignored? Why would these experts risk their reputation and also commit perjury? It is therefore kookier to disregard these assessments summarily than to view them with an unbiased eye.

The evidence currently being accumulated by the Cold Case Posse requires consideration. It is time for Congress to do its constitutional duty and examine all this hard evidence in the clear light of day.

Here is the original document:

http://www.worldtribune.com/2013/07/08/forensic-findings-on-obamas-birth-certificate-a-100-percent-forgery-no-doubt-about-it/

Ms. Vuoto does not appear to be an inherently stupid person. Here is her blurb from:

http://www.edmundburkeinstitute.org/staff.htm

Dr. Grace Vuoto, Founder

Dr. Grace Vuoto

Dr. Grace Vuoto is the editor of politics and culture at WorldTribune.com and the host of American Heartland with Dr. Grace on WTSB Radio. She founded the Edmund Burke Institute, was the executive director from June, 2005 to June, 2013 and the editor of its flagship publication, Reflections. Dr. Vuoto is a professor, scholar, editor and columnist.She was the executive producer of the daily radio talk show, The Kuhner Show on WTNT 530 am in Washington D.C. (2010). She wrote a weekly column for The Washington Times, “On Base with Grace,” and was editor of Base News, a project of The Washington Times for the military community (2009). She was an editorial writer at The Washington Times (2008). She was Assistant Professor of Modern British and European History at Howard University in Washington, D.C. (2002-2006). She specializes in intellectual, diplomatic and imperial history. She taught at Virginia Commonwealth University (2001-2002) and McGill University (1996-2000). Dr. Vuoto has contributed articles and/or book reviews to Reflections, The Washington Times, Insight on the News, Human Events, The Ripon Forum, World and I and The Journal of Canadian History. Her articles have been featured on The Drudge Report, ABC News, Real Clear Politics, Real Clear World, USA Today, Yahoo, World Tribune, Freepressers and RightBias among countless other Web sites. She is a regular guest on The Savage Nation, The Rusty Humphries Show, The Steve Malzberg Show, The Drew Mariani Show and Wake Up Monterey with Mark Carbonaro,among many other programs. She is the Washington D.C. Correspondent for Freedom Fridays with Carl Gallups (on air every week at 6:00 p.m. Eastern).

My GUESS is, she spent a little time with Deputy Mike “The Arizona Kid” Zullo of the Cold Case Posse and caught a raging case of The Pixel Pox. We know she was exposed to him because in her piece she writes:

During our interview, Lt. Zullo narrated his encounter in Hawaii on May 21, 2012 with Deputy Attorney General Jill Nagamine, who after repeated questions, failed to confirm the document released by the president is the same as any that might exist in their records.

Nope, you don’t catch The Pixel Pox from a toilet seat. She was messing where she shouldn’t have been messing, and now she has that drooling thing going on. And the messed up thought processes.  Deputy Zullo caught it from spending 16 hours with Jerome Corsi, and now poor Grace has disease.

Here’s how it happens. First, there is a prolonged period of mindless babbling about kerning and smiley faces, and TXE’s and layers, and rasters. This lowers a person’s resistance because to tell the truth, most of us don’t know anything about all that stuff. So, the poor victim just sits there and nods their head up and down in agreement so they don’t look stupid. Then, while the brains are being shaken, not stirred, KERWHAPP!!! Next thing you know the poor fool is infected and the drool starts slobbering out of the mouth and the sympathetic babbling starts.

This occurred because the victims attention was being focused on pixels, not on the big picture. Because the big picture is, that you can’t tell if an online image is forged or not unless there is some inherent contradiction or anomaly with the information itself. For example, if the Registrar is “Mickey Mouse” or something like that, or the fonts are something not invented at the relevant time. That’s why I call it, The Pixel Pox – an overemphasis on the little picture.

Luckily, there is a cure. First, until you get inoculated, avoid all contact with Birthers. Start reading the Obot and Anti-Birther websites like Fogbow, Obama Conspiracy Theories, and others. There you can get to the unvarnished truth about what is going on. And learn how to start laughing at the Birthers. A sufferer can also do Cognitive Self-Therapy. For example, Vuoto could ask herself questions like this:

1. Does the fact a group of people can’t figure out how an image of a  document was uploaded to the Internet, prove that the document itself was forged?

2. Is there any information on the image which has been shown to be false?

3. Why did Deputy Zullo say there wasn’t enough evidence to convict Obama of jaywalking, much less anything else???

Doing this will help cure The Pixel Pox. There is another cure, but it is much more painful. It happens when people you respect begin whispering “She’s a crazy f*cking Birther!” behind your back. And your readers begin soliciting your opinion on the fake Moon Landings. And editors and producers quit calling you.

Let’s hope it doesn’t come to that for Ms. Vuoto.

Note 1. The Image. This is from the 1959 Oscar winning film, The Alligator People. Wiki says, in part:

 The Alligator People is a 1959 science fiction horror film directed by Roy Del Ruth. It stars Beverly Garland, Bruce Bennett and Lon Chaney Jr.

After she is administered the drug pentothal by psychiatrists Dr. Erik Lorimer and Dr. Wayne McGregor, nurse Jane Marvin recalls a series events from her forgotten past when she was known as Joyce Webster.

The next morning, Mark [a local doctor/mad scientist] summons Joyce to his lab and tells her about his experiments with reptilian hormones that are capable of regenerating limbs. He continues that after Paul was horribly mangled in a plane crash, Mark administered the serum to him and several other accident victims. The treatment appeared to be a great success, until his patients began to take on reptilian traits at increasing rates. Mark explains that after Paul received the telegram notifying him that his tests were positive, he hurriedly left the train and came home in hopes of reversing his condition. When Joyce learns of Paul’s scheduled radical cobalt treatment, she insists on being present.

That night, Paul encounters Joyce at the clinic and turns away from her in shame. After seeing Joyce clasps her son’s hands and reassures him of her love, Lavinia apologizes to her for her brusqueness. As Paul climbs onto the table and Mark aims the ray at him, Mannon bursts into the lab and destroys the control panel, shooting powerful rays at Paul that transform him into bipedal, reptilian monster with an alligator like head. After trying to attack Mannon, Paul looks on as Mannon’s hook is caught on some cords and is electrocuted to death while trying to attack Paul. Confused, Paul stumbled over to the other room and tries to communicate, but his voice has been replaced with a crocodilian snarl. Hearing his wife and mother scream in horror, Paul flees into the swamps and sadly peering into the water, sees his reflection. Joyce scrambles after him, as the cobalt machine, short circuiting due to Mannon’s body; self destructs and destroys the lab. Scrambling away from his wife, Paul is attacked by and wrestles an alligator while Joyce screams at the sight. Managing to fight off and hurling the reptile away, Paul stumbles into quicksand and slowly sinks out of sight to the sound of Joyce’s shrieks.

Back in the present, the psychiatrists review the tapes of Joyce’s ordeal and, concluding that her amnesia has allowed her to suppress the horror and resume a normal life, they decide not to tell her about her life as Joyce Webster.

Note 2. For ESL’s. A Crock is a Word Play. A Croc is short name for a crocodile. A crock, is an earthenware jar which was frequently used as a chamber pot in days gone by. It is frequently used in the phrase “a crock of sh*t”

crock4 (krɒk)

n. Slang.
something false or exaggerated; humbug.

“Team Arpaio” Finds Two Negroes In Hawaii!!! (Or, A Farce To Be Reckoned With!!!)

ShowBoat1929KitchenFetchitGardellaLaVerne40perCent

The Little Nordyke Girl Loved To Hear, “Carry Me Back To Old Mombasa”

Well, Team Arpaio is just falling all over themselves. They found two negroes who had been born in Hawaii in 1961! It was hard. The slippery rascals blended right in with all the Japanese and Chinese and white Australians. But Team Arpaio is a farce to be reckoned with! They kept at it and VOILA! They found two birth certificates where black fathers were listed as Negro, instead of African as Obama’s father had been. You can hear the audio at this link:

http://obamareleaseyourrecords.blogspot.com/2013/06/team-arpaio-we-have-two-hawaii-birth-certificates.html

The discussion of the word “African” begins around 11:05 on the second audio, the one which is 14:33 long.

On the document it says race of father, and it uses the term “African.” [ skip computer stuff] That word was not used in 1960. That word did not come into vogue until 1980s, late 70s, early 80s.  And “African was not used. The 1961 Vital Statistics manual clearly states that if a person of color, the race designator is “Negro” . . . And I will share this with you. We have two birth certificates, 1961, from black individuals  and on both of their certificates the race of the father is “Negro.” So Obama’s again it is the only document that I know of that has a 20 year, what do I want to say, a phantom expression of race. It didn’t exist in 1960.

Hmmm. Notice Deputy Zullo doesn’t bother to tell us WHERE those fathers were born. He doesn’t say, those two fathers were born in Africa, too. Which leads me to suspect they weren’t. Because that would have been significant from the standpoint of consistency. Zullo would have at least had a “There is an inconsistency!” argument.

But even if those fathers were born in Africa, the issue as a whole would still be insignificant and meaningless from the angle of trying to prove some sort of forgery. Assuming the use of the word was a mistake, could Zullo say with any degree of certainty that it wasn’t a mistake on the part of some clerk in the process back in 1961, as opposed to an act of forgery??? Of course not.

As far as consistency and strict compliance with Vital Statistics manuals,  there wasn’t a Vital Statistics Enforcement Brigade that went around double checking everything typed on birth certificates. Hawaii even let the parents pick out their own race:

Update, August 26: We received responses to some of our questions from the Hawaii Department of Health. They couldn’t tell us anything about their security paper, but they did answer another frequently-raised question: why is Obama’s father’s race listed as “African”? Kurt Tsue at the DOH told us that father’s race and mother’s race are supplied by the parents, and that “we accept what the parents self identify themselves to be.” We consider it reasonable to believe that Barack Obama, Sr., would have thought of and reported himself as “African.” It’s certainly not the slam dunk some readers have made it out to be.

http://www.factcheck.org/elections-2008/born_in_the_usa.html

And here is an example of either some parents picking out their own race, or a clerk getting creative. I found this on a Free Republic thread at comment number 76. The Mother’s race is Hawaiian Caucasian, and the Father’s race is Filipino Spanish. But for some reason, nobody is yelling FORGERY!!!

Hawaiian Birth Certificate race

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/3033738/posts?q=1&;page=51

To sum this all up, Deputy Zullo is convinced he found something sinister because way back in 1961, a black guy born in Africa is listed as African on a birth certificate, while two black guys presumably born in the United States are listed as Negro. WOW! Some smoking gun!

And the moniker, TEAM ARPAIO??? Ha! What a farce!!!

Note 1. The Image. This is from the 1929 Edna Ferber version of Show Boat, as described:

Joe” (Stepin Fetchit) playing the banjo in the kitchen of “Queenie” (Tess Gardella) aboard the “COTTON PALACE” showboat as the young “Magnolia Hawks” (Jane La Verne) sits by appreciatively eating a piece of pie in the 1929 Universal version of Edna Ferber’s SHOW BOAT.

http://steamboats.com/museum/davetmovies.html

It is not widely known, but Show Boat has some identity issues, too.

Show Boat is a 1929 American romantic drama film based on the novel of the same name by Edna Ferber, not, as has been often claimed, on the Kern-Hammerstein stage musical, although the film does have songs. This version was released by Universal in two editions, one a silent film for movie theatres still not equipped for sound, and one a part-talkie with a sound prologue. The storyline follows the novel rather closely, with the significant exception of the racial angle present in the novel and in virtually all other adaptations of it, including the celebrated 1927 Broadway musical version and the film versions of the musical, made, respectively, in 1936 and 1951. (Some live radio adaptations of the musical would also omit or heavily alter the racial angle.)

Note 2. Not to be outdone, Orly Taitz jetted off on a short trip to Kenya to look for information, only to be chased off at the last minute by two members of Team Arpaio! Hier ist das video:

Note 3. The Image Easter Egg.  Showboating.  For ESLs, this is a word play on the Image, which is from the musical Show Boat, and the secondary meanings, from Merriam Webster online:

Definition of Showboat:

a river steamship containing a theater and carrying a troupe of actors to give plays at river communities

one who tries to attract attention by conspicuous behavior

Examples of Showboat:

She was showboating for the cameras when she tripped and fell.

the gymnast was showboating for the cameras when she lost her balance and fell

Synonyms: clown (around); fool around; horse around; hotdog; monkey (around);cut up; show off.

Note 4.  Stepin Fetchit. The black man in the image was a famous actor about whom there are many opinions, some good and some bad. Here is an excerpt from Wiki, with some interesting facts:

Lincoln Theodore Monroe Andrew Perry (May 30, 1902 – November 19, 1985), better known by the stage name Stepin Fetchit, was an American comedian and film actor. Perry parlayed the Fetchit persona into a successful film career, eventually becoming a millionaire, the first black actor in history to do so. He was also the first black actor to receive a screen credit.

Perry’s typical film persona and stage name have long been controversial, and seen as illustrative of negative stereotypes of African-Americans. Seen through a modern lens, Perry’s “laziest man in the world” character can be “painfully racist” but also “subversive”.

His mother wanted him to be a dentist, so Perry was adopted by a quack dentist, where he blacked boots before running away at age twelve to join a carnival. He earned his living for a few years as a singer and tap dancer. By the age of twenty, Perry had become a Vaudeville artiste and the manager of a traveling carnival show. He performed a vaudeville act with a partner, with the two of them being known as “Step” and “Fetchit”. When Perry became a solo act he combined the two names, which later became his professional name.

Deputy Jerome Corsi Jumps Birther Ship!!!

plague-dance-of-the-rats-granger

Before Deserting The Ship, Jerome Corsi Says Good-Bye To The Rest Of The Cold Case Posse

Well, one thing I missed during my time off was Jerome Corsi’s departure from Birferdom on April 19, 2013. Here is a link to the story at Dr. Conspiracy’s website:

http://www.obamaconspiracy.org/2013/04/jerome-corsi-birth-certificate-issue-a-dead-horse/

During the 2 minute plus excerpt from the interview, Corsi called the Birther issue a “dead horse.”  He said the issue has been marginalized. However, he maintained that he still believed it.  But. . . there were other issues which need his attention. Imagine that, an author just walking away from what would be one of the most devastating stories in American history to go off on some other issues. If true, this story would be bigger than Watergate. Our very own Manchurian President, and Jerome Corsi just prisses away from it with an, “Oh, I’ve got some other fish to fry. . .”

Corsi now has his own website:

http://1776nation.com/

It has been up and  running since January 24, 2013 as near as I can tell. There are no overtly birthery articles. No stories about the Cold Case Posse. As a matter of fact, Corsi managed to completely ignore Deputy Zullo’s shock and awe speech June 1, 2013 speech t0 the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Convention in St. Charles, Missouri.  The speech which supposedly impressed so many law enforcement personnel. Corsi should have been beaming with pride with his recent comrades scoring a victory like that.

But he wasn’t. Corsi is in Washington now, and is running with a more sophisticated crowd. He needs to distance himself from all that wahoo Birther stuff. That is how you can be sure that there is nothing but crapola in the Cold Case Posse report. That is how you can be sure that there were never any legs to the story. That is how you can be sure Corsi never believed any of it.

Anybody who bought into the whole “Where’s The Real Birth Certificate” farce he peddled out to be mad as heck. They got PWNED!  To give the Devil his due, Corsi never endorsed the idiotic “two citizen parents” nonsense pushed by Mario Apuzzo, Esq. and other Birthers.  I guess there is some stuff even rats will turn their noses up at.

Bizarre Reasoning We Can All Scratch Our Heads At!!!

Deputy Zullo (2nd From Left) And The Posse Demonstrate A New Treatment For Head Lice

Well, my few months sabbatical hasn’t seen any improvement in Birther Butterdezillion’s mental condition. Here is her latest bit of ramblings. Like always, Butterdezillion utilizes all 11 dimensions contemplated by cosmological string theory, sometimes with an extra universe or two tossed in for good measure. Please keep in mind that what seems incoherent in Euclidian space-time, is extremely obvious to the entities found in the 8th dimension. Or so I have been told.

I will summarize her thesis to protect any readers from madness, but if you are curious, and strong mentally, and a risk taker, here is the link to her Internet Article entitled Part Four: Three Bizarre Events We All Scratched Our Heads At. 

http://butterdezillion.wordpress.com/2013/04/05/part-four-three-bizarre-events/

The underlying bizarre events revolve around the actions of Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie, and Hollywood reporter Mike Evans in late 2010 and early 2011.  Abercrombie said he planned to put an end to the birth certificate questions for his good friend, the President. Then, he backed off his promise. Then, on several radio shows, celebrity gossip purveyor Mike Evans stated that Gov. Abercrombie, a long time acquaintance, told him he couldn’t find a copy of Obama’s birth certificate.

Later, Evans recanted and said that he hadn’t actually had any conversations with Abercrombie. Yeah, that’s a little weird. Was Evans drunk, or just running off at the mouth? Or, did Abercrombie actually tell him that because Abercrombie was either drunk, or just running off at the mouth? Were there black helicopters hovering in the vicinity???  It is an incident that someone doing a conspiracy theory television show about Birthers,  50 years in the future, will relate with spooky music playing in the background.

Had Butterdezillion just stopped at that point, then it would have been a decent enough Birther article about an important piece of Birther lore. Kind of like the book publisher’s blurb where Obama claimed to be born in Kenya, or the Connecticut social security number. She provided links to the various statements, and transcripts. If you are the kind of person who likes hiccups, then this would have had you breathing into a paper bag for a few seconds.

But. . . being Butterdezillion. . . she just has to make that out-of-body astral flight to the Crazy Dimension.  She goes and pulls the Jared Loughner Arizona shooting spree, and the resignation of Neal Palafox, Director of the Hawaii Department of Health, into the storyline. And, for her obligatory statutory confusion motif, she goes to the Hawaii Code and brings in this little  goody:

§338-17.7  Establishment of new certificates of birth, when.  (a)  The department of health shall establish, in the following circumstances, a new certificate of birth for a person born in this State who already has a birth certificate filed with the department and who is referred to below as the “birth registrant”:

(5)  Upon request of a law enforcement agency certifying that a new birth certificate showing different information would provide for the safety of the birth registrant; provided that the new birth certificate shall contain information requested by the law enforcement agency, shall be assigned a new number and filed accordingly, and shall not substitute for the birth registrant’s original birth certificate, which shall remain in place.

Based on various and sundry silly premises, Butterdezillion had previously concluded that Obama had been given a new birth certificate at the request of law enforcement. If you like nonsense verse, and are burned out on Mother Goose and Lewis Carroll, then here is the link:

http://butterdezillion.wordpress.com/2013/03/28/part-three-the-law-enforcement-provision/

Now, like a physicist working on the Grand Unified Theory, she imports this nonsense into the Abercrombie-Evans-Palafox Equations. Here is her brilliant reasoning, from the first link above:

And that’s why I think they fired him [Palafox]: he wasn’t willing to play their game. He was the snag. They had the request from law enforcement to create a new BC for Obama to protect him from those “violent Arizona birthers”, the stage had been set for it to be released…. And Palafox wouldn’t go along with it. That’s why Abercrombie was caught off-guard by the Star-Advertiser columnist’s question in bizarre event #1; his own HDOH Director stood in the way of the plan so it was in limbo at the time of the question. That’s why Abercrombie hadn’t found a birth certificate by the time Mike Evans called him. And once they saw Jack Cashill, Peter Boyles, etc bring attention to the first 2 bizarre stories, they knew they were going to eventually have to show a BC, and to do that they had to get rid of the person standing in the way. In a single day they “convinced” Mike Evans to change his story and Neal Palafox to resign. But Palafox quietly let the world know there was something rotten in Hawaii… (sort of like a red flag…)

Why wouldn’t he go along with it, when the law allows a new BC to be created at the request of law enforcement? Because the statute says that is only allowable for somebody who was born in Hawaii and has a birth certificate on file. . .

And not just any old birth certificate on file BUT a legally valid one, as opposed to all the legally invalid ones on file that she had dreamed into existence in a previous flight to LaLa Land. The reason has to be Obama’s safety. It would make little sense for the conspirators to reason, “Let’s stay legit, and we’ll use the safety provision in the Hawaii Code to get a legally valid birth certificate on file, and we will be totally NOT legit and lie about it being for the purposes of safety.”

If Abercrombie and his cronies were of a mind to cheat, why not just cheat and leave no paper trails??? Because this is where her inter-dimensional fuzzy-time fuzzy-logic breaks down.  The whole “safety” thing would be batpoop nutty to everybody, Obama friend and Obama foe alike.  I suspect that the only person in the world who would find it plausible is Butterdezillion.

How in the frigging world would a new birth certificate protect Obama from crazy gun-toting Birthers???  I am scratching my head like crazy, and I don’t have lice. Heck, we don’t have but one President at a time. We all know what he looks like. He even has his own distinctive airplane, a bunch of limousines, and a healthy contingent of reporters and secret service guys. And a couple of teleprompters.

In Butterdezillion’s Universe, was Obama ever about to slip into witness protection? Was a plastic surgeon waiting on tap somewhere to crop his ears and do a nose job?  Were crafty and clever Secret Service guys high-fiving each other on their decision to change Obama’s birth certificate and planning a celebration at Foxy’s Strip Club??? Was Joe Biden somewhere working with a speech coach like in The King’s Speech movie??? (God rest his soul!)

In her dimension, do hitmen routinely check out the birth certificates before putting their sniper rifles together up there on the grassy knolls of America??? Would a Birther hitman be fooled if Barack Obama’s name was changed to Fred Smith??? Envisage the scene there on a rooftop somewhere behind an air conditioning vent.  The assassin has everything lined up, and he texts this to his handler:

Should I ABORT???  Not sure I have the right current American President!!!

And would the Birther handler send an operative to Honolulu to double check the birth index, and would a text come back to the rooftop:

ABORT!!! Not sure who the hell this guy is!!! Wait until we can get an original long form birth certificate or microfilm!!!

Sadly, I suspect for Butterdezillion the answer to all these questions is YES!!!

Larry Klayman’s Brief Career As A Criminal Defense Attorney???

The Jury Simply Wasn’t Buying Klayman’s Theory Of The Case

A few weeks ago  Larry Klayman, Esq. had a “Butterdezillion Moment.”  He decided when Alvin Onaka, Ph.D, the Hawaiian State Registrar verified to Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett  that “the information in the copy of the Certificate of Live Birth for Mr. Obama that you attached with your request matches  the original records in our files“,  Onaka was actually failing  to verify that information.

(Click on Image to Enlarge.)

The above blurb was taken from Klayman’s August 29, 2012 letter to DNC General Counsel Robert Bauer, Esq.. (See Note 1 below for a pdf copy of the Arizona Requests and the Hawaiian Verification, and Klayman’s letter to Bauer.) Klayman went on to add:

(Click on Image to enlarge.)

Let’s deconstruct this a little:

Onaka States:  “the information in the copy of the Certificate of Live Birth for Mr. Obama that you attached with your request matches  the original records in our files.”

Klayman Responds: Onaka was asked to verify the birth facts for Barack Hussein Obama that are claimed on the birth certificate posted on the White House website and pointedly failed to do so.

Klayman Responds: Mr. Onaka undeniably failed to verify that the image posted at whitehouse.gov “is a true and accurate representation of the original record in [the DOH] files.”

Klayman falls into the same tar pit of confusion that Birther Butterdezillion fell into. In fact, I think Klayman is using her journey into illogic as his starting point. Referencing the full pdf copies of the Arizona requests, and Onaka’s Verification below,  Ken Bennett made 3 separate requests. First, he filled out a Verification Request Form which had 6 items of identifying information typed in. Then, he requested verification of 10 separate pieces of information, and finally a blanket request that the White House long form image was a true and accurate representation of the original file.

Without going too deeply into the mechanics of the situation again, all 3 requests were verified. The first request was answered by the Verification itself. As Hawaii law states (See full statute in Note 2 below.):

(b) A verification shall be considered for all purposes certification that the vital event did occur and that the facts of the event are as stated by the applicant.

The 6 typed in items were stated by Ken Bennett, the applicant, and thus confirmed by the Verification itself, as emphasized by the first 2 items on Onaka’s list.  The second request covering 10 items of information was specifically verified as items 3 through 12 on Onaka’s list. Finally, Onaka specifically stated the White House image matched the records on file. All this can be seen in the Note 1 Arizona pdf.

What I want to do is look more closely at Onaka’s response to that last request:   “The information in the copy of the Certificate of Live Birth for Mr. Obama that you attached with your request matches  the original records in our files.”  I submit that if that statement had been the only response on the Verification form, that statement alone would have answered all three of Arizona SOS Ken Bennett’s request.

The reason is, that each of the 6 items typed into the Verification Request Form also appear on the White House long form image. The same is true of the 10 separate pieces of information for which Bennett requested Verification. If all that information is on the long form image, then in effect, these are “the facts of the event are as stated by the applicant.” And, Onaka’s “verification  shall be considered for all purposes certification that the vital event did occur and that the facts of the event are as stated by the applicant.”

Klayman, and his mixed–up mentor, Butterdezillion, are busily engaged in trying to wiggle and squirm their way out of Onaka’s Verification. Both are more concerned with what Onaka did NOT say, then what he did say. They try to pretend that there is some huge and legally significant difference between the phrases identical to and true and accurate representation of and Onaka’s phrase the information attached with your request matches  the original records.

In fact, the two of them argue that by NOT mimicking the exact words of the request, Onaka’s statement means the information has not been verified at all, and in fact is confirmation that the White House long form image and the original records are not the same at all. Butterdezillion has flittered off into the theory that “the word matches means that blank boxes equal filled-in boxes.” Klayman gets his little panties in such a wad that he fires off a series of indignant and foolishly threatening letters to the effect that the recipients darn well better not rely on Onaka’s statement:

the information in the copy of the Certificate of Live Birth for Mr. Obama that you attached with your request matches the original records in our files.

Oh really??? In actuality, Onaka’s statement provides exactly the proof that the various agencies and groups require. The long form Image that Obama posted matches Hawaii’s records. Only in Birfer World is that statement hard to understand. Which is very unfortunate for Birthers, because darned if that Slippery Onaka hasn’t gone and done it two more times!!! (See the Kansas and Mississippi Verifications in Note 1 below.)

Here is what Onaka said for Mississippi on May 31, 2012:

(Click on Image to enlarge.)

and here is what Onaka said for Kansas on September 14, 2012:

(Click on Image to enlarge.)

Plus, Alvin Onaka signed off on all three of the Verifications with the same language found on the Mississippi Verification:

(Click on Image to enlarge.)

In spite of all this, the Birthers remain convinced that there is something fishy about the Obama long form Image. If this isn’t DENIAL with a capital D, then there is no such thing as denial. And, the drunks are right when they get 5 DWI’s and still maintain they don’t have a drinking problem. No, this is about as slam dunk as you can get on the birth certificate issue. But I got to thinking about this, and since I don’t want to do like the Birther Blogs, and put one thing in my title something else in the article, let’s examine a hypothetical situation:    Larry Klayman’s Brief Career As A Criminal Defense Attorney!!!

From Larry Klayman’s Closing Argument in Bob “The Bank Robber” Beaumont’s Criminal Trial

Ladies and gentlemen of the jury. I want you to know how much I appreciate your time and attention during the course of this trial. We are almost finished, because this is really a simple verdict for you to bring back. The State’s entire case rests on fingerprint evidence, DNA analysis, and other tests which allegedly shows that my client,  Bob Beaumont, robbed the First National Bank. You heard Mr. Clyde from the State Crime Lab testify that he ran a DNA test on the wad of Red Man chewing tobacco the masked bank robber spit on the floor of the bank, as captured on camera.  Mr. Clyde says that DNA matches Bob’s DNA.

You also heard Mr. Clyde testify that fingerprints were all over the marked bills that were recovered from the robbery, and those fingerprints match Bob’s fingerprints. Mr. Clyde also said that a large quantity of human drool was found on those same bills, and the DNA on that drool matches Bob’s DNA.  And, Mr. Clyde, who thinks he is some kind of Match King, says that the fingerprints and DNA found on a gun and ski mask right outside the bank’s front door, matches Bob’s fingerprints and DNA.

And finally, Mr. Clyde testifies that a retinal scan from a hidden bank scanner, and a voice analysis from the bank video tape also match up with Bob’s post arrest retinal scan and voice analysis. Well, there you have it in a nutshell. The State has NO CASE whatsoever! Because when Mr. Clyde says all this stuff matches, he is not saying that all these things are identical! Nor, is he saying that they are true and accurate representations of anything.

Therefore, the State has utterly failed to meet its burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. As a matter of fact, by refusing to say that these things were identical, or true and accurate representations, the State proved beyond a reasonable doubt that my client IS INNOCENT! Those of you who were able to stay awake without suffering seizures during the testimony of our expert symantical witness, Butterdezillion Jones, know what I am telling you makes sense.

Forget what Mr. Clyde said during his sworn testimony!  The real question you should be asking is why Mr. Clyde didn’t use those phrases identical to and true and accurate representations.  After this is over, I am going to sue Mr. Clyde. If you 12 people don’t find Bob innocent, then I may sue you too! Remember that when you are back there in that jury room! And remember this:

If the fingerprints match, guilt must not attach!!!

That is how I see this whole thing.
