The Fuller Brush Off, Man!!!

skelton-blair-fuller-brush-man

There Was A Whole Lot Of Bristling Going On!!!

Well, another congressman has given Deputy Mike “The Arizona Kid” Zullo the brush off. This time Jeff Fuller of Florida backed out of a planned meeting. The Birthers are trying to make something sinister out of it. I first read the story at Market Ticker, where we find this excerpt:

Gallups indicated that his first reaction was utter shock. “I was flabbergasted,” Gallups said. “I had been on the phone and sending and receiving emails for days – directly from the Congressman’s office and then the Chief of Staff calls me and says something to the effect of ‘we don’t remember any such arrangements.’ It was utterly astounding. I reminded the Chief of Staff that I possessed the entire email trail, including emails from him. The phone went silent. I don’t think he had thought of that. The whole conversation was surreal. I told him that it was surreal. The Chief of Staff never relented on his story – he continually insisted that no such meeting was ever arranged. He would not address the fact that I was in possession of the email chain.”

Gallups (pictured at left) said, “This is the very kind of political shenanigans that Washington does not need. The voters in this Congressman’s district need to know the dishonesty of his office and his highly unethical political dealings. The nation needs to know. If the Congressman had simply been forthright and called me up and explained that he had changed his mind and would rather not meet with Zullo and me – I would have not said a public word about it. That would have been his absolute prerogative. I no desire to ‘strong-arm’ anyone to meet with us. The problem stems from the fact that the Congressman apparently had his Chief of Staff call me and basically call me a ‘liar.’ I felt as though he was questioning my ‘sanity.’ That is where he crossed the line with me. I will not be strong-armed either. Nor will I will be told that a conversation never took place that was witnessed by Lt. Zullo, the Congressman, the Chief of Staff and myself and also recorded in official government email and phone conversations.”

The story was also carried at Poo Poo Simmons, and ObamaReleaseYourRecords. My GUESS is, that after making the appointment, somebody in Fuller’s office realized that Zullo and Team Arpaio were a complete bunch of nuts, and decided to bail out. Plus, who wants to listen to 16 hours of blather about pixels and mysterious postage dating stamps from the 1980s.  I suspect that people in Washington have been getting bombarded by all kinds of flaky Birthers and are just fed up with them. Hopefully, this is what all the FEMA Camps are for, emergency mass institutionalization of mentally ill Birthers. However, I am not sure they can be treated.

Anyway, the Birthers are bristling at the snub. I have no sympathy for them. They have brought this disrespect down on their own heads with their stupidly stubborn pursuit of nonsense, and their absolute refusal to accept the reasoned decisions of various courts out of deference to a 250+ year old European legal treatise.

Kark Denninger, the guy who runs Market Ticker, is a very intelligent person who sadly flirted with the two citizen parents nonsense. I am not sure if he is still of that persuasion, or if he maybe wised up after a few more courts threw the nonsense out. I told him that it was crap, and got “DQ’ed” for it, which is about the same thing as a ZOT! over at Free Republic.  I did an article here when it happened.

At one point, he was convinced that the long form image had been manipulated, but did not go so far as to call it a forgery. He did some kind of radio discussion with Deputy Jerome Corsi, and either Butterdezillion or Mara Zebest (I forget which) versus John Woodman.  He did make this comment at the above link:

If you remember at CPAC in May there was a bit of a political stir when Mike Zullo and crew (Sheriff Arapio’s “Cold Case Posse”) got a sitting Congressman (who they didn’t name) to agree to meet with them to present the case against Obama and his birth certificate (along with the at least as serious selective service record anomalies.)

Sooo, I am not sure how much he is still flirting with Birtherism. He does not yet stoop to calling any of the documents “forgeries,” and is content to simply label certain things as “anomalies.”  I just try not to think about all that, and still read his website daily. He makes some good common sense observations about the economy, and politics.

A Birther Mid-Summer’s Night Dream!!!

bottom2

Reed Hayes Admits To The Girl Reporter That He Never Actually Examined The Real Document

The seasons come, and the seasons go. Life is a cycle, and once again mid summer is upon us. True to ancient rituals, the Birthers are cavorting about by moonlight in the woodlands and meadows of America, and in general making asses out of themselves(see Note 3 below) . This time, the ostensible reason is that a humble Hawaiian document examiner, Reed Hayes, may topple Obama.

The story is at over at Free Republic, and ORYR, and even being spread around the Internet in various comment sections. Inhibitions lowered by untaxed spirits will drive wild mating rituals.  Roofs will be raised in barns, and trailers will be set  a’ rocking from  Georgia to Oklahoma.  Nine months hence, new little Birthers will arrive, some with names like Reed and Reedella in honor of this year’s fertility god. But, it isn’t really the Reed Hayes story that is driving all this.  Because there isn’t a story. He bases his conclusion on some online images presented him by the Cold Case Posse. This latest round pheromone pumping began over at The Western Center For Journalism:

There have been many lawsuits challenging Barack Obama’s eligibility to be President—most based on the fact that Obama is not a natural born citizen, his father being a Kenyan. Other lawsuits challenge the validity of Obama’s PDF long-form birth certificate, riddled with strange anomalies like multiple layers and eight different fonts.

The lawsuits have all crashed and burned in flames for two reasons: 1. The court hearing the lawsuits have treated the cases as a joke instead of a valid question of Constitutional requirements. And 2. The plaintiffs haven’t had Reed Hayes on their side.

Reed Hayes  is a forensic document expert who may be the man who finally brings down the Obama administration.

There is more such merriment at this link:

http://www.westernjournalism.com/document-expert-could-topple-the-obama-administration/

Here is the money quote:

Based on my observations and findings, it is clear the Certificate of Live Birth I examined is not a scan of an original paper birth certificate but a digitally manufactured document created by utilizing  material from various sources.

and a short video:

My GUESS is, that poor Reed Hayes already rues the day he ever decided he needed $50 badly enough to get in bed with Mike Zullo. Because Reed Hayes has never seen or touched the original document. And here the Birthers are, presenting him as someone who may topple the President. How is the poor man going to be able to go out in public after the Cold Case Posse heads for the Last Round Up, which ought to occur within the next few months? Because even the most stubborn Birther is getting fed up with “We are meeting with VIPs right now“, and “This is going to be REALLY BIG!“, and “Just keep sending us your money!

Particularly with Orly Taitz out there accusing Team Arpaio of having Low T, impotence,  performance anxiety, and fighting like girly-men.  There is nothing wrong with silly-season, as long as you know it’s silly. But no matter how much fun the fantasy, sooner or later you have to wake up. If I was the Birthers, I wouldn’t lose the flame-retardant long johns just yet.  And what was that Shakespeare said???

Shall we their fond documents see?
Lord, what fools these Birthers be!

Note 1. The Image. This is James Cagney, playing the role of Bottom, in William Shakespeare’s 1935 film, A Midsummer’s Night Dream. Unable to find funding in Great Britain, Shakespeare brought the script to Hollywood. Warner Brothers snapped it up, but after a squabble with Hal Wallis, Shakespeare was denied the right to make any script changes, and any voice at all in casting the players. As he complained later, it was like he wasn’t even there. As Wiki notes:

Directed by Max Reinhardt and William Dieterle, and starring Ian Hunter, James Cagney, Mickey Rooney, Olivia de Havilland, Joe E. Brown, Dick Powell, and Victor Jory. Produced by Henry Blanke and Hal Wallis for Warner Brothers, and adapted by Charles Kenyon and Mary C. McCall Jr. from Reinhardt’s Hollywood Bowl production of the previous year, the film is about the events surrounding the marriage of the Duke of Athens, Theseus, and the Queen of the Amazons, Hippolyta. These include the adventures of four young Athenian lovers and a group of six amateur actors, who are controlled and manipulated by the fairies who inhabit the forest in which most of the story is set. The play, which is categorized as a comedy, is one of Shakespeare’s most popular works for the stage and is widely performed across the world. Felix Mendelssohn’s music was extensively used, as re-orchestrated by Erich Wolfgang Korngold. The ballet sequences featuring the fairies were choreographed by Bronislava Nijinska.

In the forest outside Athens, Oberon (Victor Jory), the king of the fairies, and Titania (Anita Louise) his queen, are having an argument. Titania tells Oberon that she plans to stay there to attend the wedding of Duke Theseus and Hippolyta. Wanting to punish Titania’s disobedience, Oberon instructs his mischievous court jester Puck (Mickey Rooney) to retrieve a flower called “love-in-idleness”. Originally a white flower, it turns purple when struck by Cupid’s bow. When someone applies the magical love potion to a sleeping person’s eyelids, it makes the victim fall in love with the first living creature seen upon awakening. Meanwhile, the mischievous Puck turns Bottom into a donkey. When Titania wakes up and lays eyes on Bottom as a donkey, she falls in love with him.

Note 2. Midsummer’s Night. Actual Midsummer’s Night occurs within a few days of the Summer Solstice, around June 24 in most countries. In contrast, Mid-Summer occurs sometime between June 21 and September 21.

Note 3. Ass. This is NOT a bad word!!! As noted by Gershon Legman, in one of his collections, I forget which one:

There once was a girl from Madras
Who had a magnificent ass!
Not rounded and pink
As you probably think.
It was gray, had long ears, and ate grass!

Mike Zullo Gets Some Support???

Zullo Monkey Trial

Flanked By Fabia Sheen, Esq. and Squeeky Fromm, Mike Zullo Mugs For The Camera

Dr. Conspiracy recently offered Birthers a GOLDEN opportunity to speak up on behalf of Mike Zullo and his mouthpiece, Carl Gallups:

It was shameful, shameful, but very much in character for Gallups and his sidekick Mike Zullo. They are fine when they control the microphone, but they will not debate. They will not release their proof. They flee in terror from subpoenas where they might be cross-examined in court. They are liars and frauds and they know full well that their so-called evidence is a house of cards that will fall down from the slightest touch of criticism.

If you think otherwise, I offer you 1,000 words that I will publish on this blog, to make your argument to the contrary.

http://www.obamaconspiracy.org/2013/07/1000-words/

At the time of this article, no Birther has come forward to speak in Zullo’s defense. Now, I am one of Mike “The Arizona Kid” Zullo’s harshest critics. I mercilessly lambast him, and most other Birthers. But after no one came forward to speak on his behalf, that just seemed wrong. Sooo, I asked my BFF Fabia Sheen, Esq., an attorney, if she would take a stab at defending him. In return, I promised to treat her to Mexican food and Top Shelf Margaritas.  Here is a PDF of the Motion, where the formatting is better than you can get on the blog software:

Zullo Defense

And here is the cut and paste, which comes in at 540 words, well within Dr. C’s limits:

NOTICE AND MOTION

Comes now, the Defendant, Mike Zullo, by and through his attorney, Fabia Sheen, Esq. and in defense to the specific charges of Fraud, and other conduct in violation of 18 USC § 1343, including but not limited to lying, cheating, tampering with documents, frightening elderly residents of a nursing home,  providing legal advice while not licensed as an attorney, champerty and maintenance, and transporting Birthers across state lines for the purpose of providing false testimony, states that:

1. The Defendant hereby notifies the Court in accordance with, and pursuant to, F.R.Crim.P.12.2(a) et. seq., that he intends to plead insanity (A Mezvinsky Plea), as an exculpatory defense.

2. At all times relevant, the Defendant operated under the debilitating effects of a psychotic delusion.

3. The Defense does not, at this time, contemplate the calling of expert witnesses due to the open and obvious nature of this psychotic disorder, and presents a partial list of his erratic behavior, to wit:

a. The Defendant believed he was a law enforcement officer and the leader of a posse which traveled across the country, including several trips to Hawaii, to obtain information;

b. The Defendant believed that he was on a special mission to prove that then President Barack H. Obama was an illegal usurper in the office, who had obtained that office by means of a forged birth certificate;

c. Fantastically, while unable to obtain actual physical possession of the aforementioned document, the Defendant maintained he had proven forgery by the examination of an online image of the document; and

d. The Defendant blatantly ignored several communications with the appropriate Hawaii state officials to the effect that the document was genuine;

4. While the Defendant does not believe that expert testimony is necessary due to the overwhelming evidence of mental dysfunction, he does intend to present confidential testimony from a member of the aforesaid posse to the effect that:

a.  In addition to the victims, Posse members were also taken on weekly rides, via horseback;

b. On these excursions, which the Defendant called training sessions, Posse members were required to pretend they had pursued and captured such diverse characters as Billy the Kid, Doc Ock(sp?), and The Masked Forger;

c.  Posse members were provided secret Posse decoder rings and required to communicate through means of coded messages; and

d. Posse members were required to sign confidentiality agreements that they would keep these activities and others, secret.

5. These are obviously NOT the actions of a person in full control of their mental faculties and the Defendant prays this Honorable Court take judicial notice of this fact, since the Defendant has already spent all the money he surreptitiously obtained, and is unable to adequately compensate his attorney.

6. The Defendant, pleading now as a Third Party Plaintiff, further seeks permission to add as Third Party Defendants, Sheriff Joe Arpaio, The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office, Deputy Jerome Corsi, and John Does 1-100, to be named at a future time, for their intentional and reprehensible conduct in taking advantage of the Defendant’s impaired mental condition in criminal violation of the Americans With Disabilities Act.

For this, and all other just and proper relief, the Defendant earnestly pleads.

Respectfully submitted,

_________________________/s
Fabia Sheen, Esq.

All in all, it is a very sad day in Birtherdom, when an anti-Birther has to pay a lawyer to defend one of them. But, that makes it an even happier day for a certain Girl Reporter who gets to drink Margaritas!!!

Note 1. A Mezvinsky Plea. Technically, there is no such thing. However, as Wiki notes, some do plead the insanity defense to fraud charges:

Edward “Ed” Mezvinsky (/mɛzˈvɪnski/; born January 17, 1937) is a former congressman. A Democrat, he represented Iowa’s 1st congressional district in the United States House of Representatives for two terms, from 1973 to 1977.
Mezvinsky was involved in a series of business transactions that ultimately led to his downfall.

In March 2001, Mezvinsky was indicted and later pleaded guilty to 31 of 69 charges of bank fraud, mail fraud, and wire fraud. Nearly $10 million was involved in the crimes. Shortly after his indictment, he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, but the judge at his trial disallowed a mental illness defense. He served his time at Federal Prison Camp, Eglin. Mezvinsky, Federal Bureau of Prisons# 55040-066, he was released in April 2008. He remained on federal probation until 2011, and owes substantial restitution to his victims.

In 2010 Edward Mezvinsky’s son, Marc, married Chelsea Clinton, daughter of former U.S President Bill Clinton and former U.S. Secretary of State and U.S Senator from New York Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Note 2. Procedural Rules.  Yes, there is a F.R.Crim.P.12.2(a)!

Rule 12.2 Notice of an Insanity Defense; Mental Examination

(a) Notice of an Insanity Defense. A defendant who intends to assert a defense of insanity at the time of the alleged offense must so notify an attorney for the government in writing within the time provided for filing a pretrial motion, or at any later time the court sets, and file a copy of the notice with the clerk. A defendant who fails to do so cannot rely on an insanity defense. The court may, for good cause, allow the defendant to file the notice late, grant additional trial-preparation time, or make other appropriate orders.

The rest of the Rule may be found here:

http://www.law.cornell.edu/rules/frcrmp/rule_12.2

If you are interested, 18 USC § 1343 provides, in part:

18 USC § 1343 – Fraud by wire, radio, or television

Whoever, having devised or intending to devise any scheme or artifice to defraud, or for obtaining money or property by means of false or fraudulent pretenses, representations, or promises, transmits or causes to be transmitted by means of wire, radio, or television communication in interstate or foreign commerce, any writings, signs, signals, pictures, or sounds for the purpose of executing such scheme or artifice, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 20 years, or both.

Ornery Orly Taitz Calls Out The Arizona Kid!!! (Or, Ghostwriters In Disguise???)

Calamity Jane 2

Well, Zullo, I Say You’re A Dirty, Lowdown, Yellow, Stinking, Bushwhacking Varmint!

Ornery Orly has just fired another broadside at Deputy Mike “The Arizona Kid” Zullo, and his enablers World Net Daily, Carl Gallups, and Sheriff Joe Arpaio. It is such a comparatively good and well-written Orly  rant, that I have posted the whole thing, with a link below so you can check out the comments:

====================

More general talk from WND, Carl Gallops and Zullo-Arpaio camp, however so far no criminal complaint filed by Arpaio, no new evidence made public, just general talk with nothing to back it up

More general talk from WND, Carl Gallops and Zullo-Arpaio camp, however so far no criminal complaint filed by Arpaio, no new evidence made public, just general talk with nothing to back it up.

As always I see more general statements and talk coming from Zullo-Arpaio camp and their channels of advertising and fund raising: Carl Gallops and WND. In the articles published lately they stated that Arpaio-Zullo are talking to some congressmen and they have some affidavit from an expert Reed Hays.

The problem is that we heard this general talk before. There are no names of congressmen, affidavit of Reed Hayes was not made public, we do not know what is in it and most importantly Arpaio-Zullo never filed a criminal complaint against Obama. One can talk generalities until the cows come home. And then what?

a. Kessler stated that Zullo demanded that Kessler sign a non-disclosure agreement. Kessler stated that a bona fide police officer would put prosecuting a crime first, publishing books second. He was questioning why did Zullo seek a non-disclosure agreement from Kessler? Was it because Zullo wanted to keep this alleged affidavit hidden until he publishes his book? Until WND and Carl Galllops promote this book? Any value of an affidavit, is in   court. If it was not submitted to court and published in a book, it is worthless.

b. Kessler stated that in one of the shows Carl Gallops stated that between Arpaio and Zullo there are some 80 years of police work. Arpaio was in law enforcement for some 50 years, so people assumed that Zullo has some 30 years of experience. Kessler stated that he questioned Zullo how many years he worked as a cop, and he stated that Zullo responded that he was a cop only for 5 years. That is not much.

You can see that when I report on this site , I publish the evidence, actual pleadings, file the actual cases. The public has all the evidence.

Tell Arpaio, Zullo and their channels of distribution: WND and Carl Gallops: we need real action, real complaint to be filed by Arpaio. If he has an expert testimony, he needs to file it with the criminal complaint before something happens to the witness and he is no longer willing or able to testify. Sheriff Arpaio: do your job as a sheriff and file the criminal complaint or refund   the donations that you and Zullo collected telling the public that you as a Sheriff are working on a criminal case.  We need the real complaint, we do not need more book sales. If members of Congress decide to act, they will act. However, the only reason Brian Riley brought to you, Arpaio, a criminal complaint signed by 250 citizens of Maricopa County, AZ, is because Congress was not doing anything and the public wanted you as a sheriff to act and file a criminal complaint against Obama for running for President in your county on basis of fraud, based on fabricated and stolen IDs. You confirmed that it was a 100% fraud, but you never filed a complaint.  General amorphous talk does not do any good to anyone.  Talk is cheap, actions speak louder than words.

====================

She has flatly called the whole bunch out. Again. But, what I noticed immediately is that this rant is much better written and presented than most of her efforts to date. I suspect that somebody helped her out with this. Carl Gallups last name is mis-spelled as Gallops, which is what a spell checker would probably indicate. When did Orly ever use spell check???

I could be wrong, because there are a couple of clauses where her Boris and Natasha accent shows through the lack of an article, such as:

the public wanted you as a sheriff to act and file a criminal complaint against Obama for running for President in your county on [missing a “the”] basis of fraud, based on fabricated and stolen IDs.

And, there are the numerous strings of phrases missing conjunctions, which add to the broken and clipped  Bullwinkolocity sound, such as:

You can see that when I report on this site , I publish the evidence, actual pleadings,[missing “and”] file the actual cases.

Then, other sentences that are hybrids, both with and without conjunctions, indicating some kind of grammatical evolution:

Tell Arpaio, Zullo and their channels of distribution: WND and Carl Gallops: we need real action, [missing conjunction “and” and missing article “a”] real complaint to be filed by Arpaio.

But then again, you have phrases such as these, which do not sound anything like Orly:

One can talk generalities until the cows come home.

General amorphous talk does not do any good to anyone.

Amazingly,  you actually see the use of  relevant pronouns [egs. “that”] in some of the dependent clauses, more than once in some sentences!

Kessler stated that in one of the shows Carl Gallops stated that between Arpaio and Zullo there are some 80 years of police work.

Overall, it wasn’t as tortuous or torturous as reading through most of her writings. My best GUESS is that the rant was originally written by Orly, and then dressed up a little by somebody. But this is only one rant, and you can’t get a pattern from one rant. But just like with real ghosts, once you see one, you start looking over your shoulder.

Note 1. The Image. This is Doris Day playing a lovable rough and tumble brawler, in the 1953 film, Calamity Jane. There really was such a person, whose interesting life is recounted at Wiki. That is, assuming she really was Calamity Jane, Indian fighter, etc.  It appears that the moniker, Calamity Jane, is an alias! There are also suspicious documents and age discrepancies!!! Here are a few excerpts so you can judge for yourself:

Martha Jane Canary (May 1, 1852 – August 1, 1903), better known as Calamity Jane, was an American frontierswoman, and professional scout best known for her claim of being an acquaintance of Wild Bill Hickok, but also for having gained fame fighting Indians. She is said to have also exhibited kindness and compassion, especially to the sick and needy. This contrast helped to make her a famous frontier figure.

Martha Jane was involved in several campaigns in the long-running military conflicts with Native American Indians. Her unconfirmed claim was that:

“It was during this campaign [in 1872–1873] that I was christened Calamity Jane. It was on Goose Creek, Wyoming where the town of Sheridan is now located. Capt. Egan was in command of the Post. We were ordered out to quell an uprising of the Indians, and were out for several days, had numerous skirmishes during which six of the soldiers were killed and several severely wounded. When on returning to the Post we were ambushed about a mile and a half from our destination. When fired upon Capt. Egan was shot. I was riding in advance and on hearing the firing turned in my saddle and saw the Captain reeling in his saddle as though about to fall. I turned my horse and galloped back with all haste to his side and got there in time to catch him as he was falling. I lifted him onto my horse in front of me and succeeded in getting him safely to the Fort. Capt[.] Egan on recovering, laughingly said: ‘I name you Calamity Jane, the heroine of the plains.’ I have borne that name up to the present time.”

As reported in the Anaconda Standard (Montana, Apr. 19, 1904): Captain Jack Crawford, who served under both Generals Wesley Merritt and George Crook, stated, Calamity Jane “…never saw service in any capacity under either General Crook or General Miles. She never saw a lynching and never was in an Indian fight. She was simply a notorious character, dissolute and devilish, but possessed a generous streak which made her popular.”

It may be that she exaggerated or completely fabricated this story. Even back then not everyone accepted her version as true. A popular belief is that she instead acquired it as a result of her warnings to men that to offend her was to “court calamity”. It appears possible that Jane was not part of her name until the nickname was coined for her.

In 1893, Calamity Jane started to appear in Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show as a storyteller. She also participated in the 1901 Pan-American Exposition. At that time, she was depressed and an alcoholic. Jane’s addiction to liquor was evident even in her younger years. For example, on June 10, 1876, she rented a horse and buggy in Cheyenne for a mile-or-so joy ride to Fort Russell and back, but Calamity was so drunk that she passed right by her destination without noticing it and finally ended up about 90 miles away at Fort Laramie.

By the start of the 20th century, Madame Dora DuFran was still going strong when Jane returned to the Black Hills in 1903. For the next few months, Jane earned her keep by cooking and doing the laundry for Dora’s brothel girls in Belle Fourche. In July, she travelled to Terry, South Dakota. While staying in the Calloway Hotel on August 1, 1903, she died at the age of 51 (or 53 or 56). It was reported that she had been drinking heavily on board a train and became very ill. The train’s conductor carried her off the train and to a cabin, where she died soon after. In her belongings, a bundle of letters to her daughter was found, which she had never sent. Some of these letters were set to music in an art song cycle by 20th-century composer Libby Larsen called Songs From Letters. (These letters were first made public by Jean McCormick as part of her claim to be the daughter of Jane and Hickok – but the authenticity of these letters is not accepted by some, largely because there is no non-McCormick document supposedly written by Jane and there is ample evidence that Jane was functionally illiterate.)

Note 2. The Caption. For ESL’s the Image mouseover Easter Egg is a word play on “bar” which is both a place to drink, and a word for the legal profession and the courtGhostwriters In Disguise??? is a word play on a famous cowboy song, Ghost Riders In The Sky. It all fits in with the Western theme of the Cold Case Posse, The Arizona Kid, and Ornery Orly. Here is a youtube version by The Sons of the Pioneers:

Note 3. Ghostwriters. They may also edit and do general repairs as Wiki points out:

A ghostwriter is a writer  who writes books, articles, stories, reports, or other texts that are officially credited to another person. Celebrities, executives, and political leaders often hire ghostwriters to draft or edit autobiographies, magazine articles, or other written material. In music, ghostwriters are often used for writing songs and lyrics for popular music genres. Screenplay authors can also use ghost writers to either edit or rewrite their scripts in order to improve them, increasing their chances to be optioned or produced. Also, ghost writers may work on accompanying documents, such as treatments for screenplays.

Ghostwriters may have varying degrees of involvement in the production of a finished work. Some ghostwriters are hired to edit and clean up a rough draft, others are hired to do most of the writing based on an outline provided by the credited author. For some projects, ghostwriters will do a substantial amount of research, as in the case of a ghostwriter who is hired to write an autobiography for a well-known person. Ghostwriters are also hired to write fiction in the style of an existing author, often as a way of increasing the number of books that can be published by a popular author. Ghostwriters will often spend a period from several months to a full year researching, writing, and editing nonfiction works for a client, and they are paid either per page, with a flat fee, or a percentage of the royalties of the sales, or some combination thereof. The ghostwriter is sometimes acknowledged by the author or publisher for his or her writing services.

Dial B For Birther!!!

dialmformurderoriginal

The Phone Call Gave Him A Chance To Pull The Wool Over Her Eyes

It seems the Birthers are back up to their Phone Ambush tactics again. (See Note 2 below for a previous instance). This time, Rep. Kay Granger’s (TX) office got the annoying Birther soliciatation:

During an Interview with Carl Gallups on Freedom Friday Mike Zullo took a caller from Texas who played audio of a phone call she recorded with her representative Kay Granger’s office. The official who spoke for Granger HUNG UP on the constituent. We have the entire interview here.

http://ppsimmons.blogspot.com/2013/07/house-republican-kay-granger-slammed-by.html

When you get there,  you have two audio recordings of the radio show to listen through. BUT, I made a transcript of the part covering the call to Mattie of Granger’s office!

==========

At 8:23 Cheryl(sp?) to Carl Gallups: My congresswoman is Kay Granger and I have been trying and trying and trying to get her to just contact you, to look at the evidence. I mean just what you can see, she is old to know, that if she looked at that certificate of live birth, that the term African was not a legitimate term in 1961. She can, it’s false on its face and she is old enough to know that.  And I actually recorded a conversation, a  45 second conversation today, where after having left a message to again look at the information and contact Mr. Zullo or Sheriff Joe Arpaio, and she has refused to do that. I’d would love to play that real quick, it’s about a 45 second thing, but here’s her response, it’s not Kay Granger’s response but it’s the person who works in her office.

Carl Gallups: OK, if we can get a good sound quality, try it,  if its no more than 45 seconds, let’s try it. [Now the recording]

At 9:15 Mattie: How can I help you?

Cheryl: Hi, who am I speaking with please?

Mattie: This is Mattie.

Cheryl: Hi Mattie.

Mattie: And I appreciate your phone call. We’re not going to be taking any meetings, though, and I just wanted to let you know that. Okay.

Cheryl: You’re not doing what now?

Mattie: We’re not going to be taking any meetings with the man that you referenced on your phone call last week, or this week, excuse me.

Cheryl: And why is that?

Mattie: We’re just choosing not to do that. But I do appreciate your calling again. Okay.

Cheryl: Tell me again your name, Mattie. M. A. T. T. I. E.

Mattie: Yes.

Cheryl: Ok, and this is Congresswoman Kay Granger’s office. . .

Mattie: Yes. Thank you very much. Good-bye. CLICK!

Cheryl: Ma’am???

Carl Gallups: So you just got hung up on?
==========

There was some jabbering going on that I didn’t get. After Cheryl complained to Gallups a little more, Deputy Mike “The Arizon Kid” Zullo came on and it was back to more,  “We don’t get no respect” and “We are meeting with a Very Important Official” song and dance.

Obviously, Granger’s office didn’t want anything to do with the goobers and gave Cheryl the bum’s rush off the phone line. Look for more of these ambush and secret recordings to try to shame Republican officials to commit professional hari kiri. It won’t work. Why? Let the Mark Halliday character from the Dial M For Murder movie answer:

Well, because in stories things usually turn out the way the author wants them to; and in real life they don’t… always.

Note 2. On June 28, 2013, Birther Chris Farrell did an ambush of Rep. Louis Gohmert (TX) by calling in on a radio show:

Saving America With The SHERIFF Plan???

The Sheriff Plan

As Usual, The Birther’s Load Kept Coming Up A Few Bricks Shy

Well, I have heard of the MARSHALL Plan, but now it seems we have a SHERIFF Plan to repair what’s wrong with America. By getting rid of Obama. Here is an excerpt from an hysterical World Net Daily email blast:



Is the biggest Obama scandal yet about to hit?
Major new development in eligibility case promised by investigators


Every day brings a new shocking headline:

      • The Obama administration provided U.S. firearms to the drug cartels in Mexico, resulting in the deaths of two U.S. law enforcement agents and countless American and Mexican citizens, apparently in an effort to make a political case for gun control.
      • The Obama administration covered up a debacle in Benghazi that cost the lives of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and other Americans.
      • The Obama administration used the Internal Revenue Service as an attack dog against its political adversaries, including, but not limited to, the tea party movement.
    • The Obama administration even targeted its friends in the media by spying on journalists at the largest news-gathering operation in the world, the Associated Press, along with a reporter from Fox News.

Could this be just the tip of the iceberg?

Have the media begun to turn?

Why are even some of Barack Obama’s most loyal supporters beginning to have their doubts?

Why did the first post-scandal poll show some 50 percent of Americans supporting impeachment of Obama?

What would happen, in this climate, if Obama’s biggest secret ever were blown wide open for the public to see?

What is that biggest secret? It’s that Obama’s Hawaii “birth certificate” is, beyond any shadow of a doubt, a forgery – a fraud.

That scandal, too, is about to break wide open, according to investigators working within Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse. They say some new earth-shattering developments will soon be announced.

***But the Cold Case Posse investigation, headed by Mike Zullo, desperately needs financial support to complete its work. ***

Here is the link to the full story at Poo Poo Simmons:

Yeah, fat chance when Zullo has already spilled the beans that the Cold Case Posse doesn’t have enough evidence to what was that Zullo said??? Oh yeah, this:

I know [Taitz] had 20-some-odd court cases on this very issue and maybe now she’s feeling very threatened,” Zullo said. “There is not enough evidence to convict him on jaywalking … let alone anything else.”

http://missionviejo.patch.com/groups/politics-and-elections/p/orly-taitz-criticized-by-sheriff-joe-arpaios-cold-case-posse

But sure, send some more money because that will automatically help upgrade that attempted jaywalking non-count to maybe full fledged jaywalking in the first degree with felonious intent. At least, that is how The Sheriff Plan works. But, the main thing is, SEND MONEY!!!

Whatever. Any Birther who buys into that is more than just a few bricks shy of a full load. Their hod is missing its bottom.

Note 1. The Image. This is an actual photo of a Marshall Plan in action. Well, maybe the sign has been changed a little. Wiki says this:

The Marshall Plan (officially the European Recovery Program, ERP) was the American program to aid Europe, in which the United States gave economic support to help rebuild European economies after the end of World War II in order to prevent the spread of Soviet Communism.[1] The plan was in operation for four years beginning in April 1948.[2] The goals of the United States were to rebuild a war-devastated region, remove trade barriers, modernize industry, and make Europe prosperous again.[3] The term “equivalent of the Marshall Plan” is often used to describe a proposed large-scale rescue program.[4]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marshall_Plan

For ESL’s there is a wordplay in the title on Marshall, which is also an acceptable spelling for a law man (Marshal), and a Sheriff, such as Joe Arpaio. The idiom, a few bricks shy of a full load means that one is less than reasonably intelligent. For fun, and more idioms, see here:

For those interested, here is the original photo:

Marshall Plan

The German words mean: Berlin’s Emergency Program with Marshall Plan Aid

PHOTO!!! Zullo Meets With “High” Government Official???

Zullo and High Govt Official_phixr

They Worked Overtime To Polish Off Another Cold Case

One of my anonymous Squeekarazzi got me this candid photograph of Deputy Mike “The Arizona Kid” Zullo meeting late last night with a high government official in a Washington Hotel. As she was restocking the mini-bar she overheard Zullo begging the un-named official to at least promise to hold some kind of a hearing on “it”  to “buy them a few more months.” She was not sure what the “it” was. But she was very sure that the government official was definitely “as high as a kite.”

She also said the drunk government official was probably a Republican, because he had red suspenders. The room was registered to The Cold Case Posse so she could not get the official’s name. But she said he had a badge on which looked like it said NIST(???) on it. They also gave her no tip whatsoever.

I know this article doesn’t provide much information, but it is still a lot more than what Zullo and his mouthpieces are providing. Here is a link to the story over at ObamaReleaseYourRecords, and as you can see there is nothing but a lick and a promise about the whole thing.

Which like we have said before, Team Arpaio is just jerking everybody off while getting some attention and having a good time. Ice down another case, Mike.
