Republicans: Put a stake through the heart of the birther movement now (the Flop Sweat intensifies)
Mlive ^ | 7/24/09 | Susan Dumass

Posted on 07/24/2009 8:11:57 PM PDT by pissant

n case you don't watch cable news (an excellent idea), you might have missed the explosion of stories on the birthers, those folks who are determined that Barack Obama can't be president because there's a massive commie conspiracy involving his birth certificate. Somehow very respected conservatives have decided to throw in their lot with them.

These people are nuts. If Republicans want to be a national party and not a repository for wingnut conspiracy theorists angry about everything, they will loudly denounce the birthers and move on. Say, with actual health care, climate change and economic proposals.

Here's a quick roundup of the insanity. Feel free to post more in ye olde comments (which also tends to be a repository for wingnuts):

Poor U.S. Rep. Mike Castle (R-Del.), who would make a great senator.

There is an actual birther bill in Congress with something like 10 sponsors.

Liz Cheney stokes the flames.

Convicted felon G. Gordon Liddy is somehow still treated with credibility.

Let's overthrow the government because our guy lost.

Count the alleged Holocaust Museum killer as a member.

Fox News gives them credibility.

Lou Dobbs dons his best tin-foil hat.

Even Wikipedia is against them. (They're all against you).

Thank God for Jon Stewart.

Of course our elitist RINO buttwipes want to put a stake in it. THEY could have demanded Obama prove his eligibility and refused to do so. Ergo, the are aiding and abetting this treasonous fraud.

When he ultimately goes down I want them to go down with him!

Obama could do it in five minutes if he wanted to. All he has to do is release his long form birth certificate, and it all goes away instantly.

How hard is that?

You said — Obama could do it in five minutes if he wanted to. All he has to do is release his long form birth certificate, and it all goes away instantly.

I have said elsewhere that I’m detecting a “change in strategy” and that the leftists are actually co-opting this issue for themselves and finding it useful to derail conservatives. I’ve noticed this just recently.

This is what I said in another post...


Yes, it does appear to be a change in strategy and I noted that it was a “change” elsewhere. It seems to be a “developing strategy” actually. You know how some things work... you gradually come upon them or you stumble upon them. I think it may be that way with this, more recently.

I wrote the following elsewhere..., in a thread in which an article was trying to “tag” someone with this label of being a birther, while they were actually trying to distance themselves from it. It was like the article was “using” the birther designation to sidetrack the real issues that were being spoken about, by this conservative.

So, the comment I said elsewhere...

The leftists don’t want the issue to go away. It’s too useful to them. I posted the following in another thread about what someone said is “panic” setting in. What I see, instead, is a “strategy” developing by the leftists...

Well, here’s how it would work..., if you’re a conservative and you have ever said anything about the birth certificate issue, those leftists are going to know about it. And then, let’s say you’re giving some reasoned points on some legislation being pushed by Obama...

If it starts sounding too good or they can’t counter it — then it’s time to shift over to the “Obama birth certificate issue” — and the leftists will be the ones who raise it.

Then they try to paint that person *as* one of those who believes that Obama is not qualified to be President, because he has not shown a proper birth certificate.

At that point, they’ve just gotten you off your points in regards to Obama’s legislation that you’re trying to get out to the public and over into whether you think that Obama is qualified to be President or not.

The public sees and hears this, they forget all about the points you were making on the legislation that Obama is pushing and now the public thinks the whole issue was about whether Obama is qualified to be President or not.

The leftists love to get the conservatives over into that topic, because it means that this particular conservative can’t talk about the legislation that he originally wanted to talk about.

That’s how it works...

And that’s why the leftists are loving the Obama Birth Certificate Issue as a good issue for them to beat on and divert any conversation away from something else.

I think the birther issue is going to be useful to them...


As I said, this appears to be a “developing” strategy right now... (i.e, just recently)

They protest too much, me thinks. The more that they protest against the “birthers,” the more that I'm inclined to believe that they are afraid the stories might be true. Be careful when libs act like they want to help the GOP. Are they really concerned that the GOP might lose support?

There are far greater threats that the Obama presidency is doing to America than to worry about this. They are about to create a welfare monstrosity out of health care that cannot be unwound, they are taking over the major industries and defining national levels of compensation, they have begun a cannibalistic class war promising the rich will pay for all things and promising no tax accountability for 50% of the country, they have put a psycho “national sterilizer” in as the science CZAR, they are installing a wise latina racist supremacist as a Justice of the Supreme Court that blatantly and proudly discriminates against white males, they are passing a trillion dollar cap and trade debacle that will makes slaves of us, they are promoting the idea that we should pay for China and India’s CO2 emissions, they are apologizing for imagined US crimes like global warming, they have taken bribe money from convicted felons like Tony Reszko, they want our tax dollars to cover people’s elective contraceptive abortions and the list goes on and on.

There are far worse things that must be attacked because they will be impossible to undo.

This rant will only fuel the fires of the rumor. Lets get some facts rather than toss insults and the ever present race card. Lets look over all the facts with the eye of Common Seance .
Lets look at that Live Birth certificate—real or bogus?
How hard is it to get one back then?
Lets look at the writings of Obama about his birth.
Lets examine the newspaper clippings we have. Are they real or tampered with? What do they really say? Could Obama’s Mama have used them for welfare
purposes?
What do they say in Kenya? Could he have been born there or in London? What about his school records? What about his hospital records? This thing should be easy to put to bed.
Do it now before ACORN puts a fake BC in the records.

True, what you bring up is what I call a “rational response” to what is going on. It’s what reasonable people (i.e., us conservatives) are really concerned about.

Unfortunately there is also another segment that has gone *insane* and off the deep end (I think because of their shock of Obama getting elected, which was quite a shock...).

An example of the insanity that does exist is the characteristics that I’ve posted about “Obama Derangement Syndrome” (which is evident with certain posters...)...

Well, there is a certain segment (small and loud... LOL...) who qualifies under the designation of “Obama Derangement Syndrome”... which is different than getting a birth certificate... :-)

One can be a true conservative and ask for the birth certificate, but also realize that there is no legal requirement to produce one.

The conservatives who don’t realize this have a tendency to slide into insanity and go off on the deep end. Something below from another thread...

You know... every time this subject comes up about the birth certificate, I’ve seen these characteristics that identify those of the “Obama Derangement Syndrome”....

No... it’s a *real syndrome* all right. And there are folks who have it. The only thing I can figure out is that some people “went insane” after Obama was elected and this was how they decided to “cope” with the changed world they were in.

As for myself, I was shocked. What can I say? I mean it was really depressing that Obama was elected — but fortunately — I did not descend into the Obama Derangement Syndrome, but rather, started working with my state legislature to pass legislation to require any candidate produce a birth certificate if they were running for office, or else they cannot be on the ballot.

What can I say? Some people “went insane” and some people “got down to productive work” — in regards to Obama, in order to do something in the “real world”....

Here are some of the characteristics of Obama Derangement Syndrome, that I’ve seen and compiled from interviewing various insane people.... :-)

I’ll outline a few so you can see what I’ve defined as that...

(1) A military coup because Obama is not qualified and the military forces his resignation (there are variations on that but they all center on a military coup, forcing Obama out of office by the military people).

(2) Obama is not President right now... (a real detachment from reality).

(3) Obama can be removed from office as President right now by a judge ordering a U.S. Marshal to walk into the Oval Office and arrest Obama and remove him from the White House.

(4) The reason why Obama has not been removed from office thus far and the courts have not removed him is because there is a widespread conspiracy, fear, or collusion or whatever other reason supplied for the conspiracy. “Everyone” is involved in the conspiracy and thus Obama can’t be removed. (can be variations on this but it’s all about a general and widespread conspiracy as to why Obama is still in office).

(5) The idea that Obama must present his birth certificate, even though there is no legal requirement to do so, and even though no other candidates have ever been compelled, legally, to produce their birth certificate, and that if Obama doesn’t produce his birth certificate, then he is not qualified.

(6) The rejection of simple, real-world solutions to this birth certificate problem (like getting an ordinary state law requiring the showing of a birth certificate), and instead, insisting on “solutions” that don’t work in the real world and/or “solutions” that have not worked in all this time.

These people are nuts.

A small group continued pursuing the Clinton's Whitewater dealings for years and I can't see how that hurt the party. The party followed Clinton with six of its strongest years ever.

As long as Obama refuses to release his original certificate (which two state officials profess they do have), this won't die. And the more Obama discredits himself as he's done this week, the more who will wonder about his motives in the BC matter.

A small group continuing with this story won't hurt the part. No need for such hysterics.

I hope there are six dozen more of these types of controversies that spring up around Zero.

The birth certificate is a red herring. Natural born citizen means someone who is a citizen and was never naturalized. BO is a citizen because his mother was a citizen. So it doesn’t matter where he was born.

The only reason the left goes into Alinsky attack mode is if they perceive a credible threat and want to destroy someone or an idea, a la Palin or the Birthers.

I say bring it on, the more press = more awareness and interest of the general public. Keep in mind no matter what develops they'll spin it for Obama and against the rest of the country. . .

For those who think Snopes is "the last word"

- A message not paid for by George Soros/DNC:

THIS MAY SURPRISE YOU



For the past few years www.snopes.com has positioned itself, or others have labeled it as the *tell-all, final word* on any comment, claim and e-mail.

But for several years people tried to find out who exactly was behind snopes.com. Only recently did Wikipedia get to the bottom of it - kinda makes you wonder what they were hiding. Well, finally we know. It is run by a husband and wife team - that*s right, no big office of investigators and researchers, no team of lawyers.. It*s just a mom-and-pop operation that began as a hobby.

David and Barbara Mikkelson in the San Fernando Valley of California started the website about 13 years ago - and they have no formal background or experience in investigative research. After a few years it gained popularity believing it to be unbiased and neutral, but over the past couple of years people started asking questions who was behind it and did they have a selfish motivation? The reason for the questions - or skepticisms - is a result of snopes.com claiming to have the bottom line facts to certain questions or issues, when in fact, they have been proven wrong. Also, there were criticisms the Mikkelsons were not really investigating and getting to the *true* bottom of various issues.

When I saw that Snopes had falsely claimed that Obama*s Birth Certificate had been properly validated, I realized something was wrong with either their research and/or their credibility. It seems something is seriously wrong with both.

Then a few months ago, when my State Farm agent Bud Gregg in Mandeville hoisted a political sign referencing Barack Obama and made a big splash across the internet, supposedly the Mikkelson*s claim to have researched this issue before posting their findings on snopes.com. In their statement they claimed the corporate office of State Farm pressured Gregg into taking down the sign, when in fact nothing of the sort ever took place.

I personally contacted David Mikkelson (and he replied back to me) thinking he would want to get to the bottom of this, and I gave him Bud Gregg*s contact phone numbers. Bud was going to give him phone numbers to the big exec*s at State Farm in Illinois who would have been willing to speak with him about it. He never called Bud. In fact, I learned from Bud Gregg no one from snopes.com ever contacted anyone with State Farm. Yet snopes.com issued a statement as the *final factual word* on the issue as if they did all their homework and got to the bottom of things. Not!

Then it has been learned the Mikkelson*s are very Democrat and extremely liberal. As we all now know from this presidential election, liberals have a purpose agenda to discredit anything that appears to be conservative. There has been much criticism lately over the internet with people pointing out the Mikkelson*s liberalism revealing itself in their website findings. Gee, what a shock!

So, I say this now to everyone who goes to www.snopes.com to get what they think to be the bottom line facts: Proceed with caution. Take what it says at face value and nothing more. Use it only to lead you to their references where you can link to and read the sources for yourself. Plus, you can always google a subject and do the research yourself. It now seems apparent that*s all the Mikkelson*s do. After all, I can personally vouch from my own experience for their *not* fully looking into things

A Death Sentence for Detroit
By Susan Demas

Polls show most Americans don’t want Uncle Sam to help the Big Three and I couldn’t care less.

They’re wrong, plain and simple, but it’s not entirely their fault. The amount of misinformation floating out there on ye olde information superhighway and from TV anchors who should know better is staggering.

Unfortunately, this won’t stop the Big Three bashing because it’s too much fun. What we have is an axis of ignorance of far-out environmentalists and free-market Republicans.

Letting the Big Three die isn’t just cutting off our nose to spite our face. It would be a decapitation.

There is limited time and space to get people’s attention and if you think the majority of that time and space should be spent in this foolish pursuit of a birth certificate then it is you that is preposterous. Get over it. He is legally president and has no requirement to produce a birth certificate so stop wasting time and effort screaming about this when the mention of it discounts you and your movement into an “Obama Derangement Syndrome”. If he passes health care we will have another actuarially unsound monstrosity on our hands like Social Security. So wasting time on this deflects the real arguments against something that is truly dangerous.

“Whenever my 6-year-old throws a tantrum about some toy she absolutely needs to get this instant, I refocus her attention by reminding her of all the kids in this state, country and world who don’t even have a roof over their heads. And I usually turn on the news to demonstrate that the world is a pretty big place, praying that there’s not some insipid segment playing on Michael Jackson.”
