Top article on that page-

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT FROM THE BIRTHER SUMMIT

Based upon multiple factors, Vattelevision, LLC, the parent company of The Birther Summit, has postponed, indefinitely, its planned event in Washington, DC.

(no word on what happens to the donations they collected for it).

My sole purpose in this exchange is to prove that access can be made, not to forward information about the site. Sorry.

I have no problem going there either. I wonder if your internet provider might be blocking this site.

I bet the 0bama people threatened the lives of the Birther Summit organizers and even stoled all the donations they had collected.

It's been obvious for a long time that this wasn't going to happen. Root canals have about as many Facebook likes as the Birther Summit.

I guess this explains his bizarre press releases over the past few months, where he's tried to piss off just about every other birther. Now he can say he's calling this off because the message is "nowhere near cohesive."

I’ve had unbelievable support expressed to me because of my articles, so, no, that had nothing to do with the postponement. And, what, exactly, have you done (other than type on a keyboard)?

I just added a “Like” to the Root Canal page.

It still failed at home, but works fine at my place of employ. So it must be my provider.

Write all of the particulars down and then call your provider and ask for some answers. Providers are sometimes political animals, you know, and they just may be in disagreement with your philosophy.

And why on Earth do you care? For you, this entire issue is nonsense, and our time would be better spent discussing anything else, yet here you are, trying to keep tabs on what people who don’t even agree with you are doing.

One would think your time would be better spent discussing anything else.

I wanted to know what was happening and not believe something just because I read somewhere that someone said it.

I've followed the matter for about four years now and commented on it because I wanted to do my part to keep FreeRepublic from turning into a Birther nuthouse or being a constant source of Birther misinformation. In 2008-2010 there was a very real danger of the uncritical repetition of Birther falsehoods taking hold. And a fair number of us wanted to keep FR's reputation from being dragged into the mud by the Birther gangs

That task is largely complete. Birthers are now a very small number of people here on FR and their misguided opinions are pretty much ignored now. The only ones left are just a few hard-core cases who have serious emotional attachments to their beliefs.

Some of those falsehoods are still circulating, but I suppose you might have been helpful in pushing some of them down.

That task is largely complete. Birthers are now a very small number of people here on FR and their misguided opinions are pretty much ignored now.

Not sure how you can arrive at that conclusion. Last thread I was involved in went to 500 posts. There is interest in the topic. I learned of two more legal scholars that support the main birther argument. (Several Years Prior to the Election, by the way.) I dare say that many if not most of Free Republic has an interest in the issue, but not very many see it as likely that the issue will ever get a fair hearing in the public domain.

The only ones left are just a few hard-core cases who have serious emotional attachments to their beliefs.

I would characterize them as people who are unwilling to bow to a lie. You, on the other hand, prefer to admire your emperor's new clothes. I have these words of Samuel Adams for you and your ilk.

"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."
