Oh, What A Tangled Web!!!

Give A Person Enough Rope, And They Will Make A Giant Spider Web

One of the good things about being an Anti-Birther as opposed to being an Obot is that we still get to enjoy Obama’s various trips and stumbles. And OH, has he done it now. Breitbart broke the news today that in 1991, Obama was presented by his literary agent as being “born in Kenya, and raised in Hawaii and Indonesia.” Here is a copy:

Here is a link to the full story:

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/05/17/The-Vetting-Barack-Obama-Literary-Agent-1991-Born-in-Kenya-Raised-Indonesia-Hawaii

Like the people at Breitbart, I do not believe that this trumps a Hawaiian Birth Certificate, but this definitely breathes new life into the Kenyan Birth Birthers, and it is now going to be even more hopeless trying to convince them otherwise. I do not believe that this is something which simply slipped by Obama without his knowledge. Bluntly, Obama has just been caught fibbing once again about his past. Shades of Elizabeth Warren!!!

UPDATE: The literary agent who wrote the above blurb states that she simply made a fact checking error and had no input from Obama, which would indicate that Obama wasn’t fibbing. Here is her statement and a link to it:

Miriam Goderich just issued a statement to the Political Wire saying the future president never suggested “in any way that he was born in Kenya and not Hawaii”:

“You’re undoubtedly aware of the brouhaha stirred up by Breitbart about the erroneous statement in a client list Acton & Dystel published in 1991 (for circulation within the publishing industry only) that Barack Obama was born in Kenya.  This was nothing more than a fact checking error by me — an agency assistant at the time.  There was never any information given to us by Obama in any of his correspondence or other communications suggesting in any way that he was born in Kenya and not Hawaii.  I hope you can communicate to your readers that this was a simple mistake and nothing more.”

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/obama-literary-agent-responds-to-born-in-kenya-bio-nothing-more-than-a-fact-checking-error/

Whatever, all this still has nothing whatsoever to do with the idiotic two citizen parent Birther legal theory. However, I predict we will now be seeing this latest flap/revelation appearing in the various Birther legal filings.

The fallout should be interesting.

The Precedent For The Prescient President (Or, Meeting The Jung Obama)

I Met Him In Chattanooga, And He Said He Was From Kenya, Or Maybe Indonesia. . . But I'm Sure It Was Him!

This Internet Article could easily  be expanded to take up an entire book or two, but I will try to keep it short and readable. Before Postman Allen Hulton, there was another story where someone supposedly met the Young Obama, who said he was from Indonesia, and born in Kenya, and would be President one day.  That person was the Freeper Race Bannon.  Here are excerpts from his 2009 tale:

I believe with all sincerity and truthfulness. I am making nothing up here, except maybe a few words to keep a written dialog in readable form, but I believe I met Barak Obama in Hawaii in 1980 in Honolulu .

What strikes me most is what he said as to where he grew up: Indonesia . He told me he wanted to be President of the US someday. I remember lightly smiling and commenting that maybe by the time he gets to be 40 or so, America will be ready for a Black man to be President and I wished him luck. We spoke of the racial tensions I saw at home while growing up and I asked him if he ever saw that overseas or since he returned back to Hawaii . I don’t remember his answer, but we spoke more of his time overseas and his thoughts on life and philosophy of government. He made some strange comments to me, it was obvious he never set foot for any time on continental United States and I told him he better realize that he is making judgments about the United States when he himself never actually lived there. I told him, “ Hawaii aint the United States !”

He also told me something that I never forgot, for it caused me to do some other things in an effort to be nice to him and possibly a favor. We spoke of where I had been and the world as I saw it. I told him I had been to Africa , Mombassa specifically, and he said to me abruptly, “I was born there”. I told him he is not eligible to be president if that was true, but I remembered he said his mom was an American, so, maybe it was okay. But it was what I did after that makes this a true memory: I went back to the barracks and told others of this guy and suggested we all grab our photo albums and visit him again and show him pictures of Mombassa so he could see where he was from.

While I cannot swear it was Barak Obama, all the details I do remember of that chance encounter fit the profile of the man who some people claim is born in Kenya and others claim he was born in Hawaii . The man I met was about 18, thin, Mulatto, told me he was born in Mombassa, raised overseas, was living in Hawaii and hadn’t yet been to many places in the world outside of those places, mostly, hadn’t been to the mainland of America for any long time period if at all. And he openly told me he wanted to be President.

You can read the full story with all the embellishments here:

http://noiri.blogspot.com/2009/11/first-hand-witness-to-obama-admitting.html

Luckily, Mr. Bannon made a few boo-boos writing his story, and Blogger Barackrypal picked up on them, and busted him out:

http://barackryphal.blogspot.com/2011/08/jim-racebannon-bancroft-birtherisms.html

The stories have these things in common, like:

1. Indonesia;
2. Kenya;
3. The inability to remember the person’s strange sounding name;
4. The post de facto realization that it was Barack Obama;
5. The innocuous, casual nature of the encounter;
6. The ambiguous time frame of the meeting; and
7. The stranger’s intention to be President one day.

But, it is the last one that get’s my attention. Notice the similarities to the Postman Story in the “I will be President” element:

Hulton remembers asking the young man what his plans were for the future.

“He looked right at me and told me he was going to be president of the United States,” Hulton says.

“There was a little bit of a grin on his face when he said it – he sounded sure of himself, but not arrogant. I know how people will say things because they have an ambition, but it did not come across that way,” Hulton says. “It came across as if this young black male was telling me he was going to be president, almost as if it were the statement of a scientific fact that had already been determined, as if his being president had been already pre-arranged.”

Hulton says the claim made him speechless.

http://www.wnd.com/2012/03/postman-ayers-family-put-foreigner-obama-through-school/

I have not read any of Obama’s books or biographies, but a quick scan of the Intertubz has not revealed that he had any such thoughts at an early age. Assuming that this element is a totally invented one, the question arises, “Why???”

To be a run-of-the-mill King Incognito or Angel Unaware type folk tale, or even a flat-out lie, Obama does not need to be anything other than the future President. This common, but unnecessary, element of both stories seems to be some sort of subconscious elevation of Obama to divine status, where he has some astral plane knowledge of his destiny. This would fit in quite well with Obama being called “The One” or “The Annointed One” by many conservative pundits.

I wonder if some of Obama’s opponents have bought into their own hyperbole, to the point where “Barack The Magic Negro“, as Rush Limbaugh has called him, has truly become magic to them on some subconcious level??? I expect more of these type of “I Met The Young Obama”  stories to arise, much like the flying saucer stories arose a few decades before.  About which Carl Jung said:

In the threatening situation of the world today, when people are beginning to see that everything is at stake, the projection-creating fantasy soars beyond the realm of earthly organizations and powers into the heavens, into interstellar space, where the rulers of human fate, the gods, once had their abode in the planets…. Even people who would never have thought that a religious problem could be a serious matter that concerned them personally are beginning to ask themselves fundamental questions. Under these circumstances it would not be at all surprising if those sections of the community who ask themselves nothing were visited by `visions,’ by a widespread myth seriously believed in by some and rejected as absurd by others.–C. G. Jung, in Flying Saucers

Could this also relate to the numerous irrational Birther beliefs that are so evident to those of us who follow this issue?  Consider this discussion of the flying saucer phenomenon, from ALIENS AND ARCHETYPES with TERENCE McKENNA:

MISHLOVE: Well, that suggests to me that if we look at some of the most bizarre, most anomalous cases that we have, such as UFOs, we begin to ask ourselves not so much what are they, because that’s a mystery, but what is their function? How are they affecting us? That’s like holding up a mirror to ourselves, and it tells us a great deal about the basic mystery of our mind and our reality.

McKENNA: Yes, this is the so-called postmodern approach — to ask the question, not what is the UFO, but what is it doing to us? Jacques Vallee pioneered this approach. And the answer is fascinating. What the UFOs are doing to us, to global society, is they are eroding faith in science by casting directly in the path of science a kind of gauntlet, a challenge: “Crack this” — almost as if the cosmic giggle had shown up at the bachelor party of science to spoil the bash, in the same way that the resurrection of Christ posed a tremendous problem for the intellectuals of late Roman antiquity, because they had no place in their world view for someone rising from the dead. They were Greek materialists, atomists essentially.

In that same way, the UFO challenges the assumptions of science, and I think in that sense Jung was really onto something when he saw it as coming from the unconscious. It is like an object coming from the unconscious with a compensatory function — to turn us away from the rational and toward the intuitive; to turn us away from the paternalistic, Apollonian, solar, masculine view of things, and toward a kind of watery, lunar, mysterious, intuitively felt feminine force — almost as though the UFO is a manifestation of Gaia as mother goddess. Science, as the proudest — pardon the word — erection of the rational mind, then is challenged by something from an entirely other dimension, an entirely other realm, that concretizes for us the culture crisis. And that’s why I’ve gotten into UFOs; I think they are important for a resolution of the culture crisis. They concretize the struggle between the paternalistic-masculine and the lunar-feminine, between a dominator society and the kind of partnership society that we require to survive.

You can’t really consider these I Met The Young Obama stories to be Urban Legends because we are getting them first hand. They are not coming from the un-named second-cousin of a friend of the writer.  Neither are these Folk Tales strictly speaking, because once again, we get them from named sources.  However, they may morph into such with subsequent re-tellings.  For now, that leaves them to be either  flat out lies, or subconscious expressions from somewhere deep in the psyche. Or, a combination of both.

When I consider some of the debates I have had with intensely irrational Birthers wherein well-settled legal certainties are trumped by their gnostic-like knowledge, the subconscious approach may be worth pursuing.  Some Birthers do seem to have convinced themselves that they are right.  Sooo, I will try to keep my subconscious mind open. Can a person do that???

UPDATE!!! After publishing this, I discovered that Loren of The Fogbow had already published an Internet Article that had two more instances related to a variant of the Prescient President, I think should be called the Annointed President  These fit more into the Urban Legend mode, since they are third-hand re-tellings at least:

Tom Fife: “Well, I think you are going to be surprised when you get a black president very soon…You don’t believe me, but he is real and I even know his name. His name is Barack. His mother is white and American and his father is black from Africa. That’s right, a chocolate baby! And he’s going to be your President.”

Tim Dowling’s Friend: A friend whose identity I have forgotten pointed to a teenaged, thin fellow who certainly was Barack Obama and asked me: “Do you know that he is being groomed for the Presidency?”

Here is the link to the whole thing, which I found at Obama Conspiracy Theories:

Corsi Goes Postal With Hearsay Evidence!!!

Pravda Ran The Postman Story As "Ding-a-ling! Ding-a-ling!"

Well,  Jerome Corsi, or simply “Jerry“, as he is known to Sheriff Joe Arpaio and The Cold Case Posse  has done gone and found some more rock-solid evidence that Obama, or some other foreign student with a strange sounding name, was born in either Kenya, or maybe Indonesia, was helped out by the socialist Ayers family, and that the young black man said he was going to be President one day.

Corsi’s source this time, is 69 year old, retired Chicago postman, Allen Hulton. Here is an excerpt from the story:

Sometimes Mary [Ayers] would be out when I delivered the mail, and we would exchange a few words on occasion,” he says, recalling that she liked to talk about her family. “One day, Mary came to the door when I came up to the house with the mail,” he remembers. “After a greeting, she started enthusiastically talking to me about this young black student they were helping out, and she referred to him as a foreign student.”

Hulton assumed that by “helping” the student, Mary Ayers meant she and her husband were financially supporting the black foreign-exchange student with his education. He says that Mary Ayers told him the student’s name, but that it was a “strange name” that he could not remember, even though at the time it sounded African to him.“I was taken aback by how enthusiastic she was about him,” Hulton says. “And I believe she said he was from either Kenya or Indonesia, and I favor Indonesia in my recollection.”)

Hulton remembers asking the young man what his plans were for the future. “He looked right at me and told me he was going to be president of the United States,” Hulton says.

“There was a little bit of a grin on his face when he said it – he sounded sure of himself, but not arrogant. I know how people will say things because they have an ambition, but it did not come across that way,” Hulton says. “It came across as if this young black male was telling me he was going to be president, almost as if it were the statement of a scientific fact that had already been determined, as if his being president had been already pre-arranged.”

During the 2008 presidential campaign, Hulton observed several news reports detailing the relationship between Obama and Bill Ayers, and he recalled the encounter with the young man in front of Tom and Mary Ayers’ home.“The facial and physical characteristics, as well as candidate Obama’s voice, matched that of the young black male I met in front of the Ayers’ home,” Hulton says in the affidavit he signed Nov. 12, 2011, for Sheriff Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse investigation.

“I am positive that the black male I spoke with in front of the Ayers’ house that day was indeed a young Barack Obama.”

The rest of this fascinating story, including all the Ayers’ Family background, and a video excerpt of an interview between Jerry Corsi and Hulton can be found here:

http://www.wnd.com/2012/03/postman-ayers-family-put-foreigner-obama-through-school/?cat_orig=us

This is the kind of thing, a sworn affidavit,  that technically might meet the definition of evidence, but has little  in the way of what the lawyers call probative value.  Assuming it was even admissible. West’s Encyclopedia of American Law (2008) defines probative  as:

Evidence has probative value if it tends to prove an issue. However, probative value may refer to whether the evidence is admissible. Rules of evidence generally state that relevant evidence, which tends to prove or disprove an alleged fact, may be excluded if its probative value is substantially outweighed by the danger of unfair prejudice, confusion of the issues, or misleading the jury, or by considerations of undue delay, waste of time, or needless presentation of cumulative evidence. A trial court must use a Balancing test to make this determination, but rules of evidence generally require that relevant evidence with probative value be excluded only if it is substantially outweighed by one of the dangers described in the rule.

West’s Encyclopedia of American Law, edition 2. Copyright 2008 The Gale Group, Inc. All rights reserved.

But, because all the really fun information came to Hulton via Mary Ayers, who died in 2000, this is hearsay evidence. Hulton is not able to testify of his own knowledge whether or not the person truly was a foreign student, or where he was from, because all this information came from the deceased Mary Ayers.  Hulton can’t provide probative evidence of the name of the person he met, where the person was from, or whether he was a foreign student or not.

What can Hulton testify to of either his own knowledge, or from statements made by the young black man he met ??? Here it is:

My name is Allen Hulton and sometime in the late 1980s or early 1990’s I met a young Black man in Chicago who I think was Barack Obama, and he told me that he was going to be President one day.

WOW!!! What a tremendous piece of probative evidence that Jerome Corsi, Ph.D has uncovered!!!

Sadly, this is about par for World Net Daily, Jerome “Jerry” Corsi, Sheriff Joe Arpaio, and The Cold Case Posse. And they all wonder why their silly little investigations get ignored by the major media.

Birther 2.0 – The New and Improved Birther

First, why is there ever a 2.0 anything??? Everybody who has bought computer stuff knows that the “1.0” of anything always has a few bugs in it. Plus, when “1.0” has been out for a while, the people who use it think of new stuff they would like it to do. And, ways to do the old stuff better. Birthers are no different. Just like anything, we can evolve over time to become better and more efficient at what we do. Just like consumer products, if we don’t evolve and improve, then we run the risk of becoming obsolete.

Just such a challenge faces us now. Birtherism, as a movement, began in response to questions about the eligibility of Obama to be a president. Was he born in America or Kenya? Did his dual citizenship prevent him from being eligible? So we asked the questions most Americans didn’t want to ask back in 2008. And at first, people thought we were crazy. But as time went on, and Obama refused to release anything beyond a short form birth certificate to a special group, the number of people having doubts grew and grew. In August 2010, a CNN poll showed 58% of Americans had some degree of doubt where Obama was born, ranging from those who definitely thought Obama was not born in the United States to those who thought he was probably born in the United states, but not definitely sure of it.

The legal questions have reached the end. The United States Supreme Court refused to hear the Kercher Case. This means that as a legal matter, the Vattel Birthers and British Citizen Birthers are out of luck. Most lawyers think that if Obama was born in the United States, then he is a Natural Born Citizen. Whether this is right or wrong is not the point. What it is, is just the law. That legal question went nowhere, and unless Congress takes it up, or changes the law, then it is just over.

Plus, as we enter 2011, there are indications that Obama is finally going to have to deal with the issue of where he was born. Neal Abercrombie, Gov. of Hawaii says he intends to do something about the doubts. Chris Matthews is calling for the Long Form. And in the words of many talking heads, “grown ups” are headed to the White House to assist Obama in running the government. The upshot of all this is that probably, we will finally see the Long Form.

This is why we need to become a new and improved birther. . .Birther 2.0. Because what if the document is credible and indicates that Obama was born in Hawaii, or Connecticut? Does that mean all the questions are answered??? Both legal and where??? I think NO!

Because what was always beneath the surface of Birtherism is still alive and kicking. The “NBC Legal” Birthers wanted to see a positive allegiance to the United States. The “Where was he born?” Birthers wanted to be sure Obama was an American President, someone who understood the responsibilities of the office of the Presidency towards all citizens, not just his own supporters.

Here is where my questions about WHY tie in both sides of Birtherism. Because trying to understand WHY Obama failed to resolve this issue for 3 years goes right back to the underlying concerns of both types of Birthers. Assuming Obama was born in Amerca, asking WHY it has taken this long to resolve the questions reveals that Obama most likely DOES NOT have an allegiance to America, but to his own political fortunes. He was willing to sell out America, imprison military officers, and keep the country in turmoil for three years because he thought it would gain him votes. That is the probable reason for not coughing up a long form Birth Certificate for so long.

Again, assuming that Obama was born in America, the “Where was he born?” type Birthers may finally have their questions answered. The worst thing we can do is to refuse to believe the Long Form if it is credible, because that is one of the things the Obots are crowing about. That we are just too stupid to believe anything, so why cough anything up??? If the documentation is credible, then we need to evolve to “2.0” and begin asking WHY??? Why did it take Obama so long to resolve this?

Asking WHY, does not mean that Obama has reached safe ground. Not by a long shot!!! I have been asking WHY for quite a while now, and I express the range of possible answers as KISS. As you can see, being born in Kenya is the nicest possible answer. The rest indicate that Obama has severe mental and psychological difficulties:

1. KENYA. He is born in Kenya.
2. IGNORANT. Obama is too ignorant to think of the simple answer.
3. SNOBBY. Obama thinks Americans are too stupid to believe the REAL THING!
4. SLIMY. Obama thinks it is OK to make some Americans look crazy if it gets him votes.

Those questions guarantee that the real problems with Obama come to light. And, there is NOTHING Obama can do to make those questions “obsolete.” Sorry, but his refusal to cough up the Long Form for 3 years can’t be undone. The fact that Obama “fiddled” while Col. Lakin went to prison, can’t be undone. The fact that Obama lets the taxpayer cough up Lakin’s cost of incarceration rather than cough up a long form, can’t be undone. Obama has put himself into the same position as a felon, who repents his crime only after he has been caught, found guilty, and is facing sentencing.

Changing our focus from WHERE and the NBC legal questions to WHY Obama hasn’t resolved this, guarantees that Obama will finally have to pay a price for his Machiavellian Chicago Thug Tactics. WHY, is the question he can’t duck and cover from. Asking WHY, means Birther 2.0 will be the best version ever!

New Horizons In Birtherism!!! (A White Paper)

First of all, what is a “White Paper”? Isn’t all paper, except for construction paper, white? Actually, no. A white paper (or “whitepaper”) “is an authoritative report or guide that is often oriented toward a particular issue or problem. White papers are used to educate readers and help people make decisions, and are often requested and used in politics, policy, business, and technical fields.” (Wiki)

Next, what is a “think tank”? A think tank “(or policy institute) is an organization or individual that conducts research and engages in advocacy in areas such as social policy, political strategy, economy, science or technology issues, industrial or business policies, or military advice.” (Wiki)

Now, that we all know what “White Papers” and “Think Tanks” are, we can begin. Historically, there are different kinds of Birthers

Some of are “Show Me The Long Form Birthers” or what I call “Common Sense Suspicious Birthers” (CSSBs). Others are “Natural Born Citizen Birthers” (NBCs) or what I humorously call “Vattle Birthers.” The NBC’s have been thoroughly discredited by me. I think most of them are OBOTs anyway, trying to mess with our minds.

https://birtherthinktank.wordpress.com/2011/02/14/vattel-birthers-should-just-stfu-a-white-paper/

This just leaves the CSSBs, like me. But, we are in danger of extinction should Obama ever cough up his Long Form, or a bumpy Birth Certificate into public, and he really was born in Hawaii or Connecticut. To date, the last document Obama has released was on July 13, 2008 when he gave his alleged birth certificate to a group so they could put a PICTURE of it up on the Internet. Now if all Birtherism was ever about was just “getting Obama”, then we should just evaporate into the dustbin of history. But I think it was always about more than just that.

What we must seek to preserve, is the underlying DISTRUST OF GOVERNMENT which caused us to be Birthers in the first place. We just didn’t fall for some PICTURES on the Internet, or somebody we don’t know in Hawaii “swearing” that they had seen the “real thing.” This DISTRUST is a necessary DEFENSE MECHANISM for our country (America) to survive. There is a long tradition in this country (America) of our Presidents just lying to us like dogs! We even had a WOMAN President for over a year. For a brief history of these lies, see here:

https://birtherthinktank.wordpress.com/2011/02/22/a-u-s-president-would-never-lie-would-he-a-white-paper/

Soooo, the question is ‘How do we Birthers create that New Horizon?” Here is how: By changing the underlying question from “Where Was Obama Born?” to “Why Hasn’t Obama Coughed Up A Bumpy Birth Certificate or Long Form?” We become the “Questioners” instead of the “Birthers.”

By doing this, Obama will eventually have to give us proof, and we will know for sure where he was born. But the point will be ACCOUNTABILTY! That no president can just blow off a pretty large percentage of citizens. The desire for ACCOUNTABILITY and TRANSPARENCY lives on regardless of where he was born. Birtherism lives on, because it is now more about the GENERAL responsibility of government officials and less about the SPECIFIC failure of Obama to be open and transparent.

Plus, we make it a lot easier to fight the OBOTS. There really is no good reason for OBAMA not to have put this Birth Issue to rest a long time ago. There are only 4 possible reasons, I call KISS.

1. KENYA. He is born in Kenya.
2. IGNORANT. Obama is too ignorant to think of the simple answer.
3. SNOBBY. Obama thinks Americans are too stupid to believe the REAL THING!
4. SLIMY. Obama thinks it is OK to make some Americans look crazy if it gets him votes.

None of these four options are good Presidential virtues. Being Kenyan, is actually the nicest of them. By not focusing on the place of his birth as much, we are a lot free-er to make the OBOTS defend Obama, rather than us having to defend our suspicions.

Because think about it.

If the reason is number 2, IGNORANT, that is not good because who wants a STUPID president?

If the reason is number 3, SNOBBY, then what else is Obama not telling us because he thinks we are stupid? This means Obama doesn’t trust us. That is bad.

If the reason is number 4, SLIMY, then what else would Obama do to get political advantage? This means we can’t trust Obama. That is also bad.

I have noticed when you try to hold an OBOT’s feet to the fire on these points, they run like scalded dogs!

If we Birthers can change our focus to these issues, the question of “Why Hasn’t Obama Coughed Up Something?” then we will have A New Horizon in Birtherism!!! We stay relevant, no matter what. And if Obama, or the next President tries to dodge a question, we can be right back in the fight! And, if history is any guide, the next president, Republican or Democrat, will lie to us like dogs, too. America will always need QUESTIONERS!

Sherlock Holmes Proves Obama is a Kenyan!!!

Aha! We Took It For "Granite." But It Is Actually Kenyan Black Marble!

The famous Sherlock Holmes said:

“We must fall back upon the old axiom that when all other contingencies fail, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.”

There are four basic possible reasons why Obama hasn’t coughed up his bumpy Birth Certificate for the public:

1. He’s a Kenyan.

2. He’s very, very stupid.

3. He thinks Americans are sooo stupid they wouldn’t believe it.

4. He gets a political advantage from all the “crazy” birthers.

Let’s take No. 2. Is he very, very stupid? No, he has been to Harvard Law School and everybody says he’s the smartest president we have ever had. Even I don’t really question his brains, although I do use “stupid” as an adjective a lot.

Let’s look at number 3: that it wouldn’t convince anybody because Americans are soooo stupid. . First, how would he know since he  hasn’t tried it. He has not ever put his bumpy Birth Certificate or even his Long Form out in public for everybody. One group gets it. Some lady nobody knows in Hawaii just swears it is real. But all you really have is a picture on the Internet. OBOTS  admit that in COURT, all it would take is a tangible certified copy of the birth certificate, to prove he was born in Hawaii or Connecticut.  Nothing else, just that one piece of paper. Yet they fail to explain how if you move that one  piece of paper from inside the courthouse, 200 feet to the outside world, what it is that transforms it into nothingness. Plus what would it hurt??? Is somebody NOT going to vote for him if he proves he is an American???

Sorry, but Number 3’s a bust.

Now, lets take Number 4: Is he getting a political advantage? No. The Birthers are tearing him to pieces. At present, about 25% of voters think he is a Kenyan. Another 20% aren’t sure where he’s from.  Chris Matthews says it is over half, and now a majority of Americans.

Why the Birther Movement Refuses to Die

Plus us Birthers are causing problems on every issue. Read what the OBOTS say about us at that cite:

“The birthers are a bunch of wacky, paranoid, Obama-haters crudely cloaking themselves in the mantle of public spirited citizens and legal experts with no personal, political, let alone racial, ax to grind with Obama. Their sole goal they claimed was to insure electoral truth and accuracy, to make sure that all the legal requirements for holding a presidential office are met, and to head off a constitutional crisis. They even promised that they would put the matter to rest if Obama simply produced the original document. But, there’s a canny, calculated, and politically cynical motive behind their Obama birth certificate agitation. The real value of the birther movement is that it’s an orchestrated back door movement to destabilize, or at the least keep the Obama administration off balance on policy initiatives he’s pushing on health care, the economy, and a softer foreign policy outreach. They are fierce opponents of these initiatives.”

Sooo, Number 4 doesn’t work.

Sooo, I have eliminated 2 and 3 and 4 and as Sherlock Holmes says so LOGICALLY:

“when all other contingencies fail, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth”

All that left is No. 1. Obama is a Kenyan.

OH! I bet it sucks being an OBOT right now!!!!

But as someone pointed out, you could start anywhere in the list, and end up with the answer you wanted. Hmmmm. Let me think about that….

OKAY, so what if me and Sherlock Holmes are wrong? That would mean Obama is one of these:

2.  Very, very stupid.
3.   Somebody who thinks American’s are very Stupid.
4.   Somebody who messes up real bad and makes very bad decisions, and won’t change his mind.

So which one of these three “virtues” makes him a good president?  NONE!!!

SO THERE!!!!

Tee Hee! Tee Hee!

How Birthers Can Debunk the OBOT’s “Airplane” Argument!!!

How Birthers Can Debunk the OBOT’s “Airplane” Argument

Here is a practical lesson from a REAL LIVE Birther-OBOT Internet Argument. I am not telling who the OBOT is because it doesn’t matter. All the OBOTS say this same thing. Remember, the OBOTS share stuff between them.

BEGINNING OF ARGUMENT

ANONYMOUS OBOT:  So what does their scenario look like? And what would travel to Kenya have been like, for a woman in her third trimester of pregnancy, in 1961? So how did they get there?
.
The Boeing 707 did not go into service until late 1959. When my half-sister flew to/from New York in 1964, half of the time it was on a prop plane. The 707 had not yet replaced all the fleets. So the trip, on a prop plane, would have looked like this:
.
Honolulu – San Francisco, change planes
San Francisco – Chicago, change planes
Chicago – New York, change planes
New York – London, change planes
London – Nairobi
.
That’s five days, plus layovers. The New York – London – Nairobi legs would have been on a BOAC Viscount 810, a prop plane with a top speed of 200 MPH.
.
How would they have paid for the trip? They were impecunious students. Ann’s father was a furniture salesman, and her mother was a bank teller. Here is what the trip would have cost:
.
In 1961, Honolulu – Nairobi RT airfare was £476. That’s £7,335, or $11, 025 in constant dollars – each person. Ann and Barack Sr. would have had to pay $22, 050 cash on the barrel head. Per capita income in 1959 in Hawaii was $1,863 or $13,872 in constant dollars. In other words, two tickets would have been a year’s salary from each of her parents.

SQUEEKY:   That was interesting. First you put all the miles in Kilometers which why would do this??? Because there are more kilometers than there are miles. For example when I am going 60 miles per hour, I am going 100 Kilometers per hour. So first, you are cheating!!!

Then, you don’t know how much money anybody had or how they got to Africa. So you are just guessing it would have been 7 days and the rest. There were ways to get to Africa or they could not have made Tarzan movies.

But I am not going to fuss at you about that because you are using your Woman’s intuition, just like I am. I am “Guessing”  Obama is from Kenya Africa because he sure is hiding a lot of stuff about his birth. Plus he acts like an anti-colonial Kenyan.

ANONYMOUS OBOT:  You’re right. It should have been in inches and feet.  The Tarzan franchise films before the mid-fifties were mostly black-and-white films shot on studio sets, with stock jungle footage edited in. The latter serial was unique for its period in that it was partially filmed on location in Guatemala. Sorry.

SQUEEKY:  Anyway, I must still be sober because I had a REALLY, REALLY GOOD IDEA, I will show you in just a minute. First of all, lets take your airplane thing. You are guessing about the prices and it is a lot, but that doesn’t matter, I will show you why. First, here is where the money could have come from using a SQUEEKY guess:

In 1959, Obama Sr. received a scholarship in economics through a program organised by nationalist leader Tom Mboya. The program offered Western educational opportunities to outstanding Kenyan students.[19][20][21] “Leaving behind his infant son, Roy, and his young wife, Kezia, who was pregnant with their daughter, Auma, he flew to America.”[22]

According to an article by Michael Dobbs in The Washington Post, President Obama misspoke of his father’s scholarship on two occasions.[23] In a speech in Selma, Alabama in March 2007, then-Senator Obama said, “The Kennedys decided: ‘We’re going to do an airlift. We’re going to go to Africa and start bringing young Africans over to this country and give them scholarships to study so they can learn what a wonderful country America is. This young man named Barack Obama [Sr.] got one of those tickets and came over to this country.’”[24] However, Dobbs states that the Kennedy family did not become associated with the educational airlift until 1960, a year after Obama Sr. was studying in the United States. Initial financial supporters of the program included Harry Belafonte, Sidney Poitier, Jackie Robinson, and Elizabeth Mooney Kirk, a literacy advocate who provided most of the financial support for Obama Sr.’s early years in the United States, according to the Tom Mboya archives at Stanford University. “Some of the money provided by the Kennedys was used to pay off old debts and subsidize student stipends. … [Obama Sr.] and other members of the 1959 cohort benefited only indirectly from Kennedy family support.”[19]

So, I think your amount was $1,500. I would double check but then I would have to do this in two posts or lose my stuff. Which is like $20,000 today. Let’s take your number.

BUT OH MY!!! Why would anybody want to spend that much money JUST FLYING a student back and forth because that is still a lot of money even for Sidney Poiter who was in the Heat of the Night, a good movie. And the other rich people like Harry Belafonte who did the song in Beetlejuice!!!

BUT, and here is where maybe sometimes drinking helps you think because I remember something I heard on TV about the tax rates in the 1960s. SO GUESS WHAT? In 1960 it was 91%! So if a rich person did have to pay a few hundred dollars, they would save 91% of it in taxes which means it would just cost NINE CENTS PER DOLLAR if they wrote it off their taxes, which you just know they did!

Soooo, that is the Squeeky guess of how it would have got done, which is only a guess, too, but I think it is a good one. What do you think?

END OF THE ARGUMENT

WHAT ALL THIS MEANS:

Here are the important points. OBOTS may have a good argument about some of their stuff. If you fight in the Court of Public Opinion, you have to be able to argue stuff back. Sooo, the OBOT argument made sense. How could Obama, Sr. Have afforded it? The first thing you have to do is realize this is just a GUESS, and doesn’t prove anything, but that also means YOU can make a GUESS, as long as it is not just totally stupid or anything. Because if you don’t say anything, the OBOTS kind of win by default.

I looked up Obama Sr. in wiki and found the scholarship stuff. Then it hit me! The news was talking 90% taxes in the 1960’s , so I double-checked the tax rate in 1961 and SLAMMM! it was 91%.  Now it made sense. It would only have cost the scholarship people 9 cents on the dollar for them to fly, or even less. Now, I could make a good guess. There are two benefits or more.

ONE, the OBOTS lose an important GUESSING argument.

TWO, a birther doesn’t just look TOTALLY STUPID or anything.

THREE, it makes being born in Kenya look less impossible.

Remember, us Birthers can win arguments by logic, too.

NOTE: I don’t want to be unfair to the Stupid Obot, so this is something I thought of AFTER the argument and I didn’t want to do revisionist history stuff and just stick it in the argument above like I was even smarter that I was.  BUT, I forgot about State income taxes. With a 91% Federal tax rate, and say even a 7% State tax rate, then a very rich person like the Kennedys, or Belafonte or Poitier, would have saved 98 CENTS ON THE DOLLAR by paying for the airfare. This would have made it even more practical and possible for Obama Sr. and Obama’s mother to fly to Kenya.

There’s No “I” in “Kenyan”, Unless You Spell It Wrong !!!

Two Obots Convincing Themselves That 60% Of The Country Having Some Degree of Doubt Where Obama Was Born Is A GOOD Thing!!!

Today, President Obama said:

It takes some time for the team to come together,” Obama said. “There’s no ‘I’ in team. So no matter how good a player is, no matter how good a group of players are, if they haven’t played together before they are not going to be as good as a team that has played together a long time.”

He was talking to some basketball people, but he is right about this. (What can I say? Even a stopped clock is right sometimes!)

So here is what I suggest to Mr. Obama. You have all these Obots out here just working their little Obot booties off trying to defend you for being a American, from either Hawaii or Conneticut. You have people like Col. Lakin probably going to prison because he wasn’t sure you are an American. You have had 73 or 82 lawsuits, who knows exactly because there have been so many, and lawyers like Dr. Taitz and Mr. Apuzzo just giving you hell. Whatever you may have thought you were accomplishing in July 2008, it just didn’t work. Giving something to that group so they could put a PICTURE on the Internet just didn’t work. Face it. Move on!!!, like that group of yours says!!!

Soooo, why don’t you PRACTICE WHAT YOU PREACH!!! If you are really a American, then cough up your Long Form, or bumpy Birth Certificate, into REAL PUBLIC this time. Go ahead and take one for the team. I know it will make you mad, and just go against your Passive Aggressive Personality Disorder thing, but you know what they say, “if you are going to make eggs, you have to break a few!”

Your team is depending on you!!!

So There!!!

The Obots FINALLY Agree With Squeeky!!!

Squeeky, After Defeating The Obots At The Battle Of Patay

For many months I have been fighting with Obots at Obot Headquarters about the need for Obama to resolve the “Birther” question, and cough up a Long Form to put an end to the questions about where he was born. It has been three years since the short form COLB, and since that didn’t work, it is just time to realize this and for Obama to address the question with a better document given to the PUBLIC this time.

The Obots have just pooh-poohed my idea and tried to act like there is no problem, even though polls show something like 58% of Americans have some degree of doubt about WHERE Obama was born. My emphasis has been more on WHY Obama doesn’t just resolve this, and hence the KISS analysis of possible reasons:

1. KENYA. He is born in Kenya.
2. IGNORANT. Obama is too ignorant to think of the simple answer.
3. SNOBBY. Obama thinks Americans are too stupid to believe the REAL THING!
4. SLIMY. Obama thinks it is OK to make some Americans look crazy if it gets him votes.

I even wrote a Internet Article, “What IF the Tucson Shooter Had Been a Birther???”.

What IF the Tucson Shooter Had Been a Birther???

Well I guess it finally worked!!! Today, a well known Obot, one who posts there a lot, finally admitted there is a problem!!! The Obot thinks John Boehner is the one who needs to solve it, but at least the Obot realizes the consequences!!! Oh Happy Day!!! Here is what he said:

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 is right!!! But the person to cough it up is Obama. He is the one who has the papers!!!

I guess persistence just pays off!!!
