Worldnetdaily Still Beating the Birther Drum

In yet another example of the eternal sunshine of the wingnut mind, the Worldnetdaily is celebrating the “fact” that their birther bullshit has now “appeared before the U.S. Supreme Court again.” Well no, actually, it hasn’t. Attorneys have asked the court to hear their appeal of the roughly 89,437th birther lawsuit. The fact that the previous 89,436 suits were dismissed does nothing to dampen their enthusiasm. Or prevent them from engaging in this kind of dishonest “journalism.”

Barack Obama has been focusing more and more, including in his 2015 State of the Union Tuesday, on what pundits describe as legacy issues.

He may envision a legacy 20 or 30 years after his White House tenure of a Web-oriented, Washington-centric health care system that efficiently dispatches what system managers believe people need for health care – a quick abortion, dietary rules or a painkiller for a terminal disease.

In that future, he may hope, as a result of his executive amnesty, for a new Hispanic majority that routinely gives the Democratic Party power as the GOP fades into oblivion.

He may even visualize little plaques on community college campuses across the 50 states noting that Americans are attending for free in exchange for mandatory public service, because of the work of President Barack Obama.

Yeah, that’s not too slanted or anything.

The issue arose even as he ran for president the first time. It surged on his election, was on fire after his inauguration and has been in the courts ever since.

The issue appeared to fade after the 2012 election. But a case that originated during that campaign season now has appeared before the U.S. Supreme Court again.

It focuses on whether or not Obama meets the U.S. Constitution’s requirement that a president be a “natural born citizen.” Obama’s response over the years has been to joke about the issue, drawing guffaws from audiences when he says his birth certificate is “somewhere on the Internet.”

But the fact remains that a law enforcement investigation by Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio found there likely was fraud in the creation of the image of a birth certificate Obama released in a White House news conference as “proof positive” of his “natural born status.”

The newest case, the subject of a request for review to the high court, was brought on behalf of John Albert Dummett Jr. and Edward Noonan.

The appeal from California’s 3rd Appellate District Court of Appeal was filed by the William J. Olson P.C. law firm and the U.S. Justice Foundation.

And the court will deny cert in this case as the have in every other one. And that won’t stop them from getting all excited the next time it happens. It’s a lot like those endless rallies of “millions” of people storming DC to remove Obama from office. No matter how many times the fizzle into a couple hundred wingnuts wandering aimlessly around the national mall, they’re just sure that the next one will do the trick.

    Ah well, its the same folks who think the Civil War had nothing to do with slavery – you can’t educate the purposely stupid.

    Jeez, it’s 2015. They really should be pivoting faster to Hillary. Shouldn’t be too hard (grab folder from the 90s, add Benghazi). At least take a half-step and chase her for him (“What did Hillary know about Obama’s Kenyan birth and when did she know it?”).

    Seems like a misuse of taxpayer funds to me. Shouldn’t they be investigating things in their own jurisdiction, like say human rights abuses? Just a thought.

    Don’t you know, the Civil War was fought over ownership of coal mines in West Virginia.

    “Dummtt”. Tee-hee. You could hardly ask for better.

    It’s worse than even the ‘Birthers’ think:

    BARAK OBAMA WASN’T JUST NOT BORN IN HAWAII, NO, HE WASNT BORN AT ALL!!!!!

    WingNutDaily’s Bob Unruh in one paragraph:

    [President] Obama’s response over the years has been to joke about the issue, drawing guffaws from audiences when he says his birth certificate is “somewhere on the Internet.”

    [Heath bolded]

    WingNutDaily’s Bob Unruh in the very next paragraph:

    But the fact remains that a law enforcement investigation by Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio found there likely was fraud in the creation of the image of a birth certificate Obama released in a White House news conference as “proof positive” of his “natural born status.”

    [Heath bolded]

    Bob Unruh’s falsifying his own premise in the very next paragraph he writes. Consider the idiocy of the so-called journalist writing this article. Consider the idiocy of the readers who take this shit seriously.

  • Mike Morris

    @Michael Heath, The readers accept it regardless of the journalistic integrity because they want to. Idiocy surely plays a part but wishing it so is at least as important to anyone who thinks Unruh is a journalist or worth reading.

    Waiting for the next birther controversy when Canadian born Ted Cruz runs for president, should get just as much attention as the Panama-born John McCain.

    To be fair, though, neither of them are Democrats.

    @9: Or Bobby Jindal, whose mother wasn’t a citizen when he was born and was conceived in India.

    Sure. In other news, Vanilla Ice released a new rap album, sales of 9600 baud modems are expected to surge, and hardcover encyclopedia sets are making a big comeback.

    DaveL “In other news, Vanilla Ice released a new rap album…”

    Does he still wax a chump like a candle?

    ..appeal of the roughly 89,437th birther lawsuit.

    That’s awfully precise for a rough number! I’d have gone with umpteen! How many has it really been?

  • Kermit Sansoo

    I’m still wrestling with the idea that somebody (a witchdoctor and a Stalinist military strategist?) were able to determine that a particular baby would be elected president 50 years later. Or were we saturated with babies with fake birth certificates, “Boys from Brazil” style?

    .

    And why wouldn’t these unimaginably effective planners simply ship the mom to Hawaii to have her child? Right wing conspiracists always think that the scheming evil Commie Muslim Satanists are magically constrained by rituals and compelled to leave clues accessible to anyone with the Little Orphan Annie decoder ring.
