World Net Daily Publisher Joseph Farah Plans to Sue Esquire Magazine

Birthers do the darndest things
Wingnuts • Views: 33,268

Honestly, you just can’t write comedy like this. World Net Daily’s head religious fanatic Birther lunatic, Joseph Farah, announced today that he’s going to sue Esquire magazine, over their satirical article that said WND was recalling the monumentally stupid Birther book by 9/11 Truther Jerome Corsi after President Obama released his official birth certificate.

Here’s the Esquire satire, by Mark Warren: BREAKING: Jerome Corsi’s Birther Book Pulled from Shelves!

I’m surprised any lawyer would take this case from Farah; he doesn’t stand a chance of winning, and if he loses he may be required to pay all legal fees for the defense — which would be a sort of poetic justice. Idiot files idiotic lawsuit, ends up paying through nose.

They put an update on it the same day clearly labeling it as satire.

What ground is he suing on, exactly?

I think he’s trying to be satirical and just failing. Miserably. He clearly doesn’t understand it.

Satire is only funny when white people make offensive videos of black stereotypes.

Otherwise, satire is never funny.

Meanwhile, in China…

An internal Chinese government report, mistakenly made public, shows that more than ten thousand corrupt officials transferred $120 billion worth of embezzled funds out of the country over 15 years.

Holy Fucking Graft Batman!

The Chinese Government is already having issues. There is a massive riot as we speak in a city near Hong Kong which is known for making jeans. Also, the Mongols in the north rioted recently, and the Vietnamese are standing firm on the Spratly Islands. Add to that constant issues with the Tibetans and Uighur, and they may be getting strained.

U.S. Senators Accuse Chinese Regime for Hampering Military Parts Probe

The United States Senate Armed Services Committee wants to conduct independent investigations in China. That’s after a 2010 report revealed that counterfeit electronics are being found in the U.S. military’s supply chain. The Chinese regime has so far declined to issue visas to U.S. investigators to travel to the mainland.

Democratic Senator, and Chairman of the Armed Service Committee Carl Levin expressed his disappointed at the Chinese regime’s response. The most senior Republican on the panel, John McCain says an investigation into counterfeit electronics is also in the interest of China.

…The 2010 U.S. government report says counterfeit electronic parts had “infiltrated” the Pentagon’s supply chain. These include microprocessors for the F-15 fighter jet and microcircuits for U.S. Missile Defense Agency hardware.

The Spratly’s are the fuze to watch. If we see a major regional conflict in SEA in the next 5 - 10 years, my bet is the oil fields there will be the flash point. Between the Vietnamese & Chinese (who already hate each other with a balkans-eque ferocity and history) plus interference by the Philippines you’ve got the potential for some serious naval actions. My money would be on the Vietnamese, long term, though it might get expensive.

This is the same nation that whipped the Mongols, French, Chinese (numerous times), and Cambodia. The last time, they defeated the last two at the same time.

Perhaps he will claim that Esquire’s satire interfered with sales of the book, resulting in monetary damages.

Perhaps this is just a publicity stunt.

Or perhaps Farah is just generally delusional.

When I was in Vietnam for our adoption, I met a fellow who had been in the ARVN and then, later, was “rehabilitated” because he was willing to go north and fight the Chinese.

By George McGovern:

At the end of the war, Ho Chi Minh expected that he and his freedom fighters would be recognized by the U.S. as the rightful government of Vietnam instead of being returned to colonial rule under the French. He wrote a series of eight letters to President Truman beseeching the American government to back independence for Vietnam. In those letters he reminded Truman of the American War for Independence of 1776.

He also called attention to the recently announced Vietnamese Declaration of Independence which was copied from America’s that had been drafted by Thomas Jefferson. Ho Chi Minh only made one change in the American document, Jefferson had written: “We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal. He changed that to “all people are created equal”- obviously a wise improvement.

All cannon fodder is created equal. /

Wearing FBI Wire, Alabama Republican Called Black Casino Customers ‘Aborigines’

Alabama state Sen. Scott Beason, a cooperating witness in a federal corruption case, called black gambling hall customers “aborigines” when he was wearing an FBI wire and recording conversations with his fellow lawmakers, it was revealed in court this week.

Beason and two other Republican legislators were joking about economic development in predominantly black Greene County and the customers of the Greenetrack casino, the Associated Press reports.

“That’s y’all’s Indians,” one Republican said.

“They’re aborigines, but they’re not Indians,” replied Beason.
[…]
In another recorded conversation, Beason — who cooperated with the feds’ investigation and has not been charged — agreed with other Republican legislators who said that there would be a big turnout of black voters if bingo was on the ballot because casino owners would offer free buffets and gambling credits to lure African-American customers and then bus them to the polls.

If the so-called “mainstream media” still had any balls, they would be all over this story.

Gov. Chris Christie Claims Fox News Chief As Confidential Adviser

The office of Republican Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey is claiming that Fox News chairman Roger Ailes is a confidential adviser whose interactions with the governor should remain secret under New Jersey’s executive privilege.

Last month, after New York magazine reported that Ailes met with Christie last summer and called him this year to urge him to run for president, Gawker filed a request under New Jersey’s Open Records Act seeking any correspondence between the two men, as well as any records of meetings or phone calls with Ailes from Christie’s schedule or call logs.

Last week we received a rather surprising response: While declining to confirm the existence of any such records, Christie’s office said they “would be exempt from disclosure…based upon the executive privilege and well-settled case law.” In other words, Christie’s staff refused to search for any records—which, given the undisputed reports of a dinner and phone call, almost certainly exist—on the basis that Ailes is a confidential adviser whose comments should be shielded from public scrutiny.

Black Supremacist Nation of Islam Pushes White-Dominated Scientology

Two of America’s better known UFO-friendly religions, Scientology and the black nationalist Nation of Islam (NOI), now have more in common than unusual theologies involving intergalactic spaceships. For about a year, NOI leader Louis Farrakhan has been telling his followers to embrace Scientology in order to move closer to perfection in preparation for the end times.

According to a May 31 article in Final Call, NOI’s newspaper, nearly 700 NOI members have become Certified Hubbard Dianetics Auditors, and more will soon be trained in Church of Scientology (COS) techniques “to prepare better servants and saviours of the people by helping to clear up their minds and lives.” COS “auditors” supposedly help people ascend to higher levels of consciousness.

Why do so many celebrities fall for this Scientology shit? At least the Kabbalah cult has some slight connection to an actual mainstream religion.

L. Ron Hubbard seems to have specifically targeted celebrities and caters to them as part of the effort to spread scientology:

Hubbard envisaged that celebrities would have a key role to play in the dissemination of Scientology, and in 1955 launched Project Celebrity, creating a list of 63 famous people that he asked his followers to target for conversion to Scientology.[267] Former silent-screen star Gloria Swanson and jazz pianist Dave Brubeck were among the earliest celebrities attracted to Hubbard’s teachings.[267][268]
Today, Scientology operates eight churches that are designated Celebrity Centers, the largest of these being the one in Hollywood.[269] Celebrity Centers are open to the general public, but are primarily designed to minister to celebrity Scientologists.[269] Entertainers such as John Travolta, Kirstie Alley, Lisa Marie Presley, Nancy Cartwright, Jason Lee, Isaac Hayes, Edgar Winter, Tom Cruise, Chick Corea a

I got to climb around in a PBY Catalina and a B-17 in western NY back in the early 90s. And also attend an airshow there a year later with a Thunderbirds appearance that included an Ontario group bringing in the only flying Lancaster in North America. Plus a lot of other old warbirds.

That group had some sort of spat and broke up. Part of it moved down to Elmira, NY to use a concrete field and I’m not sure what has happened to the side that owned the grassfield.

Never was there visiting when the Cat was up. But it was obvious they flew it since the whole front was covered in bug strikes. What I saw/heard the most was the P-40 they had, or one of the two Piper Cub observation planes. You knew when the B-17 was up since it was very distinctive.

I personally think Blackbirds are about one of the coolest looking planes. Unfortunately my pictures of one at Wright-Patterson came out ugly (the display hangers are IMHO underlit and thus do not support photography of the aircraft very well, especially the large ones.

she is definitely on my shit list.

In political news, in a poll about a hypothetical match-up between Sarah Palin and Barack Obama, a majority of voters answered, “What does hypothetical mean?”

Sarah is hypoethical! Go Sarah!

It seems Morocco’s King is smarter than most North African leaders thus far.

For today’s update, I’m think of adding a little blurb which can be summarized as “What happens to Algeria.” Thoughts?

I’m trying to figure out how that’s even possible. WTF?

Maybe NOI figures that if all white people become Scientologists, we’ll have to accept black superiority because, well, they weren’t dumb enough to become Scientologists? Could that be it?

re: #85 RadicalModerate

So, Sarah is a schizophrenic who follows the voices in her head and in the end will be found to be a heretic?

To be fair, chica was also one hell of a good military leader.

Jeanne, not Sarah, I mean.

Bah. It’s looking like the New York Senate is well on its way to once again weaseling out of allowing same-sex marriages in the state, thanks to the tired and nonsensical “We’re worried about there not being enough exceptions” argument. The “exceptions” that appear to be missing are that all people and groups, public and private, aren’t allowed to discriminate against homosexuals in all things.

Bleh, this makes me so frustrated. Monday is the last day of the session and I can see nothing happening by then (Even if Cuomo caves and agrees to a deal with the devil). *grumblegrumble*

re: #156 SanFranciscoZionist

You missed the best, next, lines:

But in most else, she shares with sister St. Joan. Driven by visions from God and destined for sainthood by way of a burning at the stake, Sarah is misunderstood here in her own lifetime

Is English not this person’s first language, or what?

I mentioned upthread that I’d read Harry Potter fan fiction that was more realistic. I wasn’t just being snarky. In the hands of a fan fiction editor, that nonsense would have been sent back for too much purple prose, passive voice, and turning Caribou Barbie into a Mary Sue.

Heh.

Slightly OT (sorry). I have been strictly boycotting Oprah, her “favorite things”, and any book she’s ever recommended after she broadcast this show, 20+ years ago

Not only is she spreading lies here, she’s exploiting someone who’s clearly mentally ill.

Has Oprah ever apologized for this? I have nothing to do with her, so I don’t know.

They get the wrong idea, develop a fixation on Johnny Depp, and try to become “Pirates of the Mediterranean” again?

And then there are political issues when the peace treaty is being resolved since there are advocates at that point to explicitly declare the US a Christian Nation and finish off that whole Treaty of Tripoli talking point that has been kicking around for years.

But there is a hacker attack at the last moment by Anonymouse and the treaty declares the US a “Kitteh Nation” and no one notices until after it has been signed and approved by the Senate. Oh the embarrassment.

Sarah Palin IS a Mary Sue.

I hadn’t put it into those words before, but that is exactly what she is to her fan club. She’s an all-American Mary Sue.

But it’s not just that the prose is purple, it’s that the writing mechanics errors are egregious. He actually states, if you read the words, that Palin is destined to be burned at the stake.

The other problem with satire, by the way, is that its also an ‘easy out’.

Somebody says something terrible, and then when called on it “It was just satire, you humorless goon!”

It’s not only the content of WND that will fry your brain cells…

…I’d sue WND for remaining a hideously early 90’s n00b “designer” style web site.

Why is it that all conspiracy sites look like they’re created in Frontpage ‘95 or something? What is it with those guys? Tons of stupid spinning GIFs, default Times crappy font, horrific color combinations, overuse of hyperlinks everywhere, no concept of any engaging style whatsoever and it all looks like it’s shouting in your face about insane ravings and really bad ads trying to milk people for every penny they have with snake oil salesmen thrown into the mix.

The people that make me wonder the ones who actually buy into this Palin-as-martyr mentality. Her followers are the ones most liable to punish her for not fulfilling their fantasies of what she can do for them. If they ever work themselves into that level of frenzy, I’ll be the first to defend her.

Not really; if anything, in my personal world, she is little more than an eyeroll-generator. Every group has their opportunist, rwnj “types”. She and the rest of the 5 Black Tea Party A-listers, are such “types”….known many like them, in my day.

re: #118 ProLifeLiberal

Keep this information handy. When the time comes, Democrats need to counter what the Republicans are doing with Planned Parenthood and other things by investigations of various groups that have quasi-promoted a conservative political view.

Big Targets: Southern Baptist Convention, Mormons, and the Evangelical Movement.

The strategy I would take with those groups: force them to state in public why they believe they should have more rights than other Americans.

That will do 2 things: 1, shake out the people from those movements who do NOT believe that and 2, force the remaining ones to duke it out with EACH OTHER as to why they believe their particular sect deserves more rights than the others.

184 OhCrapIHaveACrushOnSarahPalin  Fri, Jun 17, 2011 3:19:44pm

re: #183 OhCrapIHaveACrushOnSarahPalin

Perfect example: when Herman Cain claimed (and lied) he would make Muslims take a loyalty oath, simply ask why non-Muslims should be afforded more rights than Muslims.

When the rwnj screech their non-sequiturs that the founding fathers were Christians, ask them why they believe conservative Christians are supposed to have more rights over everyone else.

L. Ron Hubbard seems to have specifically targeted celebrities and caters to them as part of the effort to spread scientology:

Yeah, the Co$ set up a Celebrity Center here in Nashville a couple of years ago, right smack dab in the middle of the Bible Belt.

I wonder who they’ve “converted” here….
