The Political Theatre of the Absurd!!! (Or, Deconstructing Klayman)

The Birthers Were Rational In Name Only

Well, we can’t say we weren’t warned. Bob Unruh over at World Net Daily has an exclusive story about the latest antics of Larry Klayman, Esq.  Here are a few excerpts, and there is a link that follows with the full story, and images of various documents:

OBAMA LAWYER WARNED AGAINST CERTIFYING ELIGIBILITY

A former U.S. Justice Department attorney who founded the government watchdog Judicial Watch and later Freedom Watch has warned a key Barack Obama attorney that Democrat Party or state elections officials certifying Obama’s eligibility for the 2012 election could become the targets of election-fraud charges.

In his letter to Robert Bauer, general counsel to the Democratic National Committee, Klayman explained that the evidence shows no one knows for sure about Obama’s eligibility, so letters from the DNC to states about Obama’s 2012 candidacy may be problematic.

“There is therefore no longer any state or national official in the Democratic Party who can escape legal responsibility for ignoring the proof herein provided, and a plea of ignorance of the facts will no longer be possible, especially under the informed legal counsel provided by you (and your state counterparts), Mr. Bauer,” Klayman wrote.

“At the same time that you are receiving this legal analysis, each DNC Executive Committee member – as well as each state Democratic Party chair, secretary of state, and state attorney general – is receiving a certified letter advising them of the legal jeopardy in which they place themselves should they proceed – in light of the facts herein presented – to certify to state or national election officials that Barack Hussein Obama is the constitutionally and legally qualified Democratic candidate for president of the United States.”

Such verifications, if created, would be “perjurious,” Klayman said.

Here is the link, and the full story has much more details and is worth the read, if only for the full dramatic impact:

Damn, all that sounds scary. Is he serious??? Is Klayman really threatening this sort of  nonsense?  Has he begun using  bill collector tactics??? You know, trying to scare the crap of of some poor wretched deadbeat with the ominous statement “I know somebody at the Prosecutor’s office, and if I don’t get a payment. . .”  But, these officials aren’t sitting there, hunkering down in a 12′ by 56′ mobile home, with a big hole in the bathroom floor, waiting for the Polizei to bust down the door.

These officials have a job, money, connections and paid for legal counsel. Klayman ought to know that. Has he lost his mind??? But wait, didn’t I say above that “we were warned”??? Remember back in May, 2012 when Larry “Big Gun” Klayman was hired by the Sam Sewell Syndicate  down in Florida??? Here is what Klayman said back on March 20, 2012:

Asked whether he has the goods on Obama, Klayman exclaimed, “Of course!  Others have already gathered what we need, with more in the pipeline. The task at hand is to compel court proof, official acknowledgment and removal from the ballot, as well as present the damning facts about Obama to the court of public opinion.”   Asked what he’ll do to help succeed, he stated: “accurate reading of applicable law, attention to rules of evidence, researching case law, venue selection and use of ‘political theater’ out of court.”  Case: Voeltz v. Obama, et. al.(Case No.: 2012CA00467) and is filed in Leon County Superior Court.

Now we know what is going on – – – Political Theater out of court. Klayman is playing for the Birther peanut gallery. No doubt they will begin salivating like a dog going through the McDonalds drive-thru, particularly if you have ever bought Mr. Fluffy a dollar double-cheeseburger there before. (Without the pickle.)

No real story here. Just spin. Klayman is chewing the scenery and trying to milk the absurd Birther crap for all it is worth. Enjoy the show for what it is.

Note 1. The Theatre of the Absurd. Wiki says:

The Theatre of the Absurd (French: Théâtre de l’Absurde) is a designation for particular plays of absurdist fiction written by a number of primarily European playwrights in the late 1950s, as well as one for the style of theatre which has evolved from their work. Their work expressed the belief that human existence has no meaning or purpose and therefore all communication breaks down. Logical construction and argument gives way to irrational and illogical speech and to its ultimate conclusion, silence.

Critic Martin Esslin coined the term in his 1960 essay “Theatre of the Absurd.” He related these plays based on a broad theme of the Absurd, similar to the way Albert Camus uses the term in his 1942 essay, “The Myth of Sisyphus”. The Absurd in these plays takes the form of man’s reaction to a world apparently without meaning, and/or man as a puppet controlled or menaced by invisible outside forces. Though the term is applied to a wide range of plays, some characteristics coincide in many of the plays: broad comedy, often similar to Vaudeville, mixed with horrific or tragic images; characters caught in hopeless situations forced to do repetitive or meaningless actions; dialogue full of clichés, wordplay, and nonsense; plots that are cyclical or absurdly expansive; either a parody or dismissal of realism and the concept of the “well-made play”.

Note 2. The Image.  The photograph is of Salvador Dali, and was taken by Phillipe Halsman. More about this can be found here:

Note 3. The Motif. (No really, the MOTIF, not the MOTIVE!) Eugene Ionesco wrote an Absurdist Play, called The Rhinoceros. Wiki says:

Rhinoceros (French original title Rhinocéros) is a play by Eugène Ionesco, written in 1959. The play belongs to the school of drama known as the Theatre of the Absurd. Over the course of three acts, the inhabitants of a small, provincial French town turn into rhinoceroses; ultimately the only human who does not succumb to this mass metamorphosis is the central character, Bérenger, a flustered everyman figure who is often criticized throughout the play for his drinking and tardiness. The play is often read as a response and criticism to the sudden upsurge of Communism, Fascism and Nazism during the events preceding World War II, and explores the themes of conformity, culture, mass movements, philosophy and morality.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhinoceros_(play)

Sooo, this fits in with the Theatre of The Absurd motif. But it also fits in with a wordplay on RINO, or Republicans In Name Only, a derogatory term tossed at moderate Republicans by their more right wing  brethren. Only now, RINO becomes Rational In Name Only. More interesting snippets  from the play can be found here:

Obama and the Magic Beans!!!

The Wizard Explains Derivatives To Jack

Everybody knows the story of Jack and the Beanstalk, but just in case you don’t,  here’s a brief recap.  Jack lives with his mother, who is a 99er, and has completely run out of money. Jack’s mother unplugs the XBox, and rousts Jack off the couch, to go to market with the only remaining asset,  Buttercup the cow.  Along the way Jack meets a sharp Wall Street derivatives trader who manages to con Jack out of the cow for a handful of magic beans.  When Jack gets back home his mother is distraught, and unable to afford an attorney, throws the silly magic beans out the back window, and hocks Jack’s XBox.

During the night, the magic beans grow into a huge beanstalk, which Jack proceeds to climb. At the top, Jack finds a goose that lays golden eggs, which he steals from its rightful owner.  Jack slides back down the stalk, and chops it down to evade apprehension, and everybody lives happily ever after.  This is probably a mythological reference to finding the Greater Fool, and destroying the document trail, but that is a story for another time.

But what if the beans had not been magic??? What if the beans were just plain beans???  Such is the state of affairs between the Democrats and Obama.

Because Obama,  much like Jack, has taken something good, solid and productive, like a cow, and swapped it in for the magic beans of Birtherism.  Rather than work to stop the Bush tax cuts, or truly rein in Wall Street, Obama has relied on the magic beans of Birtherism to ensure his re-election. Rather than honestly focus in like a laser on jobs, or exorcise the demons of speculation from the price of oil, Obama has bet his bank on the magic beans of Birtherism, assuming that either sympathy or fear will impel his faithful base to the polls in numbers sufficient to guarantee a second term.

Strangely, this bet did not pay off in 2010.  In what was widely regarded as a referendum on Obama, the Republicans won seats in record numbers and  a majority in the House.  Yet, Obama is still in his backyard, with a bottle of Miracle Grow trying to coax the sprouts upwards. His minions are complicit in this, and if you doubt it, simply watch the media response to Donald Trump. There is more coverage on the missing birth certificate than on Trump’s pledge to confront OPEC and end the trade imbalance with China.

And one can not help but wonder at the Obama supporters. Do they really think the Spectre of Obama “coughing up” a long form birth certificate is going to have the same effect as Lyndon Johnson’s Mushroom Cloud??? Do they really think a majority of voters are going to duck and cover in fear and trembling lest the true birth weight of Obama becomes known???

Sadly, for the Democrats, this is the real world.  They have contentedly swapped Buttercup, the cow, for a handful of beans. Truly, they don’t know beans.

Eligibility Blackmail – “Birthers, STOP Asking Questions or Else!!!”

Axelrod Wrote The Book!!!

I have long accused Obama of playing politics with the Birther Question with one possible reason he has refused to resolve the question of his birthplace being political – a desire to get extra votes by portraying his opponents as “crazy” Birthers.

Now, the Obots are saying the same thing, but get this – you won’t believe it – but here it is!!! The Obots are accusing John Boehner and the Republicans of playing politics with the Birther Questions by NOT stopping people from ASKING questions. Think about it for a minute. Obama could actually ANSWER the question of where he was born in a definitive fashion by presenting a Long Form Birth Certificate to the PUBLIC, not just some special group. Yet, the Obots ignore that fact, and try to stop the people ASKING questions!

For three years Obama has refused to ANSWER the question and resolve the issue, and who do the Obots want to blame??? The people ASKING questions. AND, here is where the EXTORTION and BLACKMAIL comes in, the Obots want to blame any future violence, like Tucson, on the people ASKING the question, not the person who refuses to ANSWER the question!!! Yes, you heard it right, the Obots want to blame any future violence NOT on the person WITHHOLDING the information, but on those asking for it!!! This is like saying to somebody, “Pay the ransom or else somebody will get hurt and it will be all YOUR fault!” NO, it will be the fault of the person doing it!!! Here is the statement:

It’s about time the Republicans in Congress put an end to the ridiculous assertion that President Obama, or anyone else for that matter, could get all the way to the Oval Office without being eligible to be there. Republicans know this, yet they want to keep their constituents believing in fairy tales for political reasons. The failure to publicly address this issue, presents a danger to the American people.

About a week ago, a 9 year old girl was killed by someone who tried to assassinate a member of Congress. Several weeks ago, someone emailed their representative in Congress and said that he was considering assassinating the president because “he’s not a US citizen.” Now, since Republicans have a difficult time putting two and two together, let me do the math for you. People at a public event + assassination attempt = dead innocent American bystanders. It has already happened, and it can happen again with just as deadly consequences. So why don’t you just man up and tell the American people the truth about this issue? Are you going to wait until there are more dead children as a result of this lie being proliferated? Because I don’t think you want anyone pointing their fingers at Republicans and saying that you could have stopped such a killing if you had just told the American people the truth about this issue rather than milking it for political gain.

The Obot Comment

Isn’t the desire to substitute Obama’s name there just OVERWHELMING??? Oh, what the heck, let’s just do it!!! Here is the way it SHOULD have read, with my additions in italics and bolded:

It’s about time the Democrats in Congress put an end to the questions about where President Obama was born. Democrats know this, yet they want to keep their constituents believing Birthers are crazy for political reasons. The failure to publicly address this issue, presents a danger to the American people.

So why don’t you President Obama just man up and cough up a Long Form Birth certificate? Are you going to wait until there are more dead children as a result of this lie being proliferated? Because I don’t think you want anyone pointing their fingers at you, President Obama and the Democrats and saying that you could have stopped such a killing if you had just coughed up the Long Form Birth Certificate rather than milking it for political gain.

There, doesn’t that read better??? Plus, it puts the burden of resolving the question on the person who has the documents, not the people asking for the documents.

And don’t think this is just one lone little Obot’s voice crying in the wilderness or just one little lone Obot trying to shift the focus from Obama to the QUESTIONERS. OH NO! There is now a movement to chastise the Republicans for not doing what ONLY Obama can do. Take a look at this group:

Denounce The Birthers

This is an organized attempt to stop the ANSWERS by stopping the QUESTIONS. Of course, with all the toned-UP rhetoric and uncivil rhetoric they can muster. Wouldn’t it just be a lot simpler for Obama to cough up his Long Form Birth Certificate???
