Gone To Since 1984

And now, they're coming for your Social Security money - they want your fucking retirement money - they want it back - so they can give it to their criminal friends on Wall Street. And you know something? They'll get it. They'll get it all from you sooner or later. Because they own this fucking place. It's a Big Club: and you're not in it.

    "It is important to make sure that very graphic photos of [bin Laden] who was shot in the head are not floating around as an incitement to additional violence or as a propaganda tool.

    […]

    We don’t trot out this stuff as trophies. The fact of the matter is, this is somebody who was deserving of the justice that he received.

    […]

    …we [are] monitoring worldwide reaction. There is no doubt that Osama bin Laden is dead. Certainly there is no doubt among al Qaeda members that he is dead. So we don’t think that a photograph in and of itself is going to make any difference. There are going to be some folks who deny it. The fact of the matter is, you will not see bin Laden walking on this earth again."

    President Barack Obama, in remarks to Steve Kroft for an upcoming 60 Minutes.
    I agree, and I find that bit about al Qaeda members lack of doubt to be particularly interesting, but I still think this course of action only invites a whole new wave of “Deathers.” Not that they’d believe anything up to and including bin Laden’s head on a pike in the middle of a DC roundabout (he was dead ages ago and kept on ice; this is an elaborate biological replicate of what appears to be his head; where’s the body!?!). Still, something has got to be put out there such that this crap is mostly shut down. The nonsense with the birth certificate fairly proves that it will never, ever go away until the MSM and specifically FOXnews is just too embarrassed to mention it anymore.
    Why not video of the raid up to the frame before he is shot? Surely this would be proof positive and seems likely to exist. Assuming that’s not forthcoming, I’d say it’s only days before House and Senate Republicans start in with the “well, I take him at his word but…” crap.

    Birther Boogaloo: You Tell Me

      Reality Check:  Okay, now, what are the specific requirements in the [TN Ballot Access] bill?
      TN State Senator Mae Beavers:  That they have to have the long-form birth certificate.
      RC:  What is the long-form birth certificate?
      Beavers:  Now, you’re asking me to get into a lot of things that I haven’t really looked into yet.
      RC:  [...] Are you aware that a lot of states now only give the short-form birth certificate?
      Beavers:  No, I only know about Tennessee, and I was born in Alabama. So I only know what I have seen.
      RC:  What if someone was not born in a hospital? It wouldn’t have an attending physician signature, so they wouldn’t be eligible to run in Tennessee if this bill passes. Is that correct?
      Beavers:  But they would have a birth certificate.
      RC:  Sure, but your bill doesn’t say birth certificate. It says “an original long-form birth certificate that includes date and place of birth, name of the hospital, the attending physician, and signatures of the witnesses.”
      Beavers:  And that’s normally what’s on a long-form birth certificate.
      RC:  It used to be, but as a matter of fact, the state of Hawaii, where President Obama was born, for people born since, I believe, around 2001, only gives the time of birth, the name of the parents, and the place of birth. Are you aware of the section of the Constitution called the full faith and credit clause? It’s in Article 4, Section 1.
      Beavers:  Yes.
      RC:  Well, do you know what it says about state documents?
      Beavers:  You tell me.
      RC:  It says that any state is required to accept the documents from another state. So that basically means that Tennessee has to accept a valid birth certificate from Hawaii or any other state.
      Beavers:  I have no knowledge of short-form birth certificates in Hawaii.
      RC:  [...] Mitt Romney may not be eligible under this bill. Are you aware of that?
      Beavers:  No, I wasn’t.
      RC:  Well, George Romney, his father, was born in Mexico. Mexico confers citizenship by jus soli, which is place of birth. So he was born with dual citizenship, and it also passes down. Unless George Romney somehow gave up his Mexican citizenship, Mitt Romney has dual citizenship.
      Beavers:  Obviously you’ve studied this whole thing.

    The only imaginable reason that Donald Trump would release this obviously unofficial birth certificate is that he is and always has been a secret terrorist anchor baby with malevolent intent towards Our Republic. That he is so brazen in his efforts to overthrow the proper Christian monarchy of the United States is only further proof of his complicity in the global islamofascist movement that is hell bent on instituting Sharia law in those vanishingly few districts of America not already under its inescapable yoke. There is simply no other rational explanation for this. Dark days for America, as Trump is plainly here to restore the caliphate.

    "Tomorrow is Obama’s birthday, not that we’ve seen any proof of that… What? We haven’t seen any proof of that! They tell us August 4th is the birthday; we haven’t seen any proof of that! Sorry. It is what it is."

    Rush Limbaugh, birther.
    Until he and all the rest of these pitiable individuals admit that Obama was born in Hawaii, Hawaii is and was then a state in these United States, and that his mother was a citizen of same, they must be hounded daily, at every public appearance large or small, about these “beliefs.” And the DNC (or an affiliate thereof) should be paying for said hounding.

    Tom (Boat) Tancredo!

      COLMES:  Do you really believe – you know [Obama] was born in Hawaii right?
      TANCREDO:  I have absolutely no idea where he was born.
      COLMES:  You’ve seen he was born in Hawaii; he was in two Hawaiian newspapers within two days of his birth.
      TANCREDO:  Anybody can put an article in a newspaper. Just show me your birth certificate! [...]
      TANCREDO:  Now they very well not want to show it because they want to propagate this whole thing that’s going on about birthers. … They may be doing it for that reason; I don’t know why they don’t want anyone to see it. … They want it propagated because you know –
      COLMES:  It makes your party look nuts!
      TANCREDO:  Yeah well maybe that’s why they don’t produce document, I don’t know.

    A Very Simple Question

    There is no proof that Scott Brown is a light skinned Cuban national that underwent cosmetic surgery and years of voice training to “pass” as an American?  Yet. As of this writing, there is no proof that he is a deep cover Russian agent sent to infiltrate the US Senate from the inside? Is Scott Brown actually Canadian? We don’t know. We have not seen his long form birth certificate.
