Former Breitbart Blogger Goes Birther, Tells Orly Taitz Breitbart Is Covering Up the Truth

Gotta love it when wingnuts squabble
Wingnuts • Views: 30,564

Meanwhile, in the lunatic right wing Birther community (and yes, it’s a community, and not a small one), a war is breaking out, as crackpot “journalist” Charles C. Johnson (who is NOT ME) visits Birther queen bee Orly Taitz and reportedly reveals a bit of BOMBSHELL BREAKING NEWS: Journalist Claims Breitbart Ignored Obama Eligibility Evidence Out of Fear of Government. (Google cache link to insane Birther site.)

Orly Taitz recently revealed some information that was procured through her dealings with former breitbart.com journalist Charles Johnson. If her account is factual, then it would be a serious indictment of this popular news organization. It goes beyond ignoring the facts to an unthinkable realization of purposely covering them up.

Attorney Orly Taitz was a speaker at an event with writer Charles Johnson…

After the presentation Johnson answered questions from the public

Johnson revealed that early on Andrew Breitbart hired him to disprove birther claims, to show that birthers are lying and Obama is eligible for the presidency. Johnson, an accomplished investigative journalist, engaged in extensive research and found that Taitz and others are correct, that birther claims are true, that Obama is indeed a fraud and using all bogus IDs. Johnson went back to Breitbart and other editors of breitbart.com advising them that birther claims are 100% correct and they should write about it. breitbart.com editors refused to write about it as they were afraid of persecutions by the IRS and other government agencies.

So, Johnson confirmed at a public meeting that breitbart.com, which fashions itself as a political dissident publication, was as complicit in the cover up of the biggest fraud in the US history, as the other main stream media publications, high ranking officials and a number of judges.

As a connoisseur of right wing idiocy, it pleases me enormously to see the Birther kooks attacking the Breitbrat kooks. It’s a kook battle! And this also shreds whatever credibility Charles C. Johnson (who is NOT ME) may have had; the guy is a Birther. End of story.

At her weird website, Orly Taitz also posted a photo of the book Charles C. Johnson (who, again, is NOT ME) signed for her, with the message: “To Orly — Keep telling the truth.”

Breitbart had finally seen the light, and that’s why Obama had him killed. Same with Loretta Fuddy, whom Obama had killed in a plane crash because she was about to reveal the truth about his fake birth certificate.

Thank God Ace Investigator Butterdezillion is on the Fuddy case. With Butter and Orly, I doubt the regime will last past the end of January, 2017.

A federal judge has ruled that Pennsylvania’s ban on gay marriages is unconstitutional.

U.S. Middle District Judge John Jones on Tuesday overturned the state’s 1996 Defense of Marriage Act, which in addition to prohibiting gay marriages, banned recognition of gay marriages performed in states that have legalized it.

Well, rummaging around in a brain as damaged as ‘not-our-Charles’ is probably complicated enough to count as research. It’s like cleaning an attic. “Oh! I wonder where that came from?”

A central teaching of Genesis is that knowledge is purchased at the expense of innocence. A core teaching of the ancients is that personal dignity is obtained through habituation to virtue. And at least one basic teaching of true liberalism is that the essential right of free people is the right to offend, and an essential responsibility of free people is to learn how to cope with being offended

Eisenhower also showed a real knack for evolving and learning from his mistakes during his tenure. Early in his first term, he let Churchill and British Petroleum hornswoggle him into overthrowing Mosaddegh in Iran. The following year, at the instigation of rightists in the State Department, he did the same with a left-leaning government in Guatemala . By 1956, however; when Britain, France, and Israel ganged up on Egypt to take back the Suez Canal; he refused to support the erstwhile allies and forced them to withdraw. He ended his second term with his iconic warning about the military-industrial complex.

FCC Will Look Into Netflix’s Peering Complaints, Chairman Says

recode.net

“The FCC will look into issues raised recently by Netflix and other companies about Internet traffic delivery, chairman Tom Wheeler said at a hearing Tuesday, as he faced a bipartisan chorus of complaints about his recent net neutrality proposal.

“Most lawmakers on the House Communications and Technology Subcommittee focused on the FCC’s net neutrality proposal released last week, which would open the door to allowing Internet providers to offer fast-lane service. Critics of the plan say that it would violate the spirit of net neutrality, which is that Internet providers should not discriminate against any legal Internet traffic and it should mostly be treated equally.

“Democratic lawmakers complained about the fast-lane plan and said the FCC should consider re-regulating Internet lines, which would give the agency clearer authority to police broadband providers. Republicans mostly echoed concerns raised by phone and cable companies, which don’t want their lines re-regulated under rules written for old phone networks.” More

“The Shield” actor Michael Jace — accused of shooting his wife to death Monday night during what police described as a possible domestic dispute — has been under financial stress for years, court records show.

“The actor, 51, filed for Chapter 13 bankruptcy in March 2011, when he listed his liabilities at more than $500,000 against assets of just $325,000, according to federal court records.

“At the time, he was also in debt to the government more than $22,000, more than $16,000 to credit card companies and still owed on two mortgages.” More

One of the most expensive high school football stadiums in America — a $60 million behemoth in Texas — will be closed this fall because the concrete is cracking, and a report commissioned by the school district says it may not have been designed to code.
The facility, Eagle Stadium at Allen High School, home of the state champions, opened to fanfare in 2012 but has been closed since February because of cracks in the concourse. The school already had to move graduation.

Marriage conveys rights and obligations. It also allows people to get tax benefits (lower tax burdens by filing jointly), inheritance, health benefits, insurance benefits, and legal rights like say going into a hospital and getting HIPAA access to records and getting information from doctors on loved ones.

That’s just the tip of the iceberg.

But you knew all that - this guy just ignores what a civil marriage means to those who have one.

10 million out of more than 300 million have disability.

I don’t even know where to begin. First, a good high school AMERICAN history class will spend a lot more time on, you know, slavery in AMERICA than in, say, the freakin’ Ottoman Empire. Also, the American Civil War (which was about, you know, slavery in AMERICA) was a much bigger event than the Barbary Wars in this country’s history, so it should be covered more.

I don’t think there’s anyone with a modicum of a grasp of history who thinks slavery was a uniquely American phenomenon. Hell, slavery was still legal in Brazil when the Brooklyn Bridge opened!

Also, do wingnuts really want to talk about the Barbary Wars? Because that John Adams letter about the US being “in no way founded on the Christian religion” might make an appearance.

What a great job to have!

Some factoids via wiki:

In 2011, there were 37 Yeomen Warders and one Chief Warder.[1] All warders are retired from the Armed Forces of Commonwealth realms and must be former senior non-commissioned officers with at least 22 years of service. They must also hold the Long Service and Good Conduct medal. Traditionally only NCOs from the Army, Royal Marines and Royal Air Force were eligible to apply. This was because members of the Royal Navy, instead of taking oaths to the Crown, take an oath to the Admiralty, whose Head is the Lord High Admiral. This reverted to the Queen Elizabeth II from 1964-2011, after which she transferred this appointment to her husband Prince Philip. This discrepancy was brought to an end with the swearing in of the first Naval Yeoman Warder in 2011.

The Yeomen Warders were formed in 1485 by the new king Henry VII, the first monarch of the Tudor dynasty, and the Tudor rose, a heraldic badge of the dynasty, is part of the badge of the Yeomen Warders to this day.”

On 1 July 2007 a service woman, Moira Cameron, became the first female Yeoman Warder in the history of the institution. Cameron joined the Army in 1985 at age 20. Aged 42 and Warrant Officer Class 2, she became eligible not long before her appointment. Previously, she served as Superintendent Clerk at a Brigade Headquarters with the Adjutant General’s Corps.

What a great job to have!

Some factoids via wiki:

One bit related to Moira Cameron, the first female Yeoman Warder:

In 2009 two male Beefeaters were dismissed for the bullying of Cameron. Three Warders were suspended, and one was subsequently re-instated following the month long investigation, with his role ‘unproven’.[9]

Do you count Drew Carey in there? I hear he’s pretty right-wing, although I don’t exactly know how “out there” he is.

263 TedStriker  May 20, 2014 3:54:33pm

re: #262 BongCrodny

Do you count Drew Carey in there? I hear he’s pretty right-wing, although I don’t exactly know how “out there” he is.

Quoth the Wiki:

Political views[edit]
Carey is an outspoken libertarian.[47][48][49][50] He has expressed his political philosophy in the following terms, “I believe the answers to all the problems we face as a society won’t come from Washington, it will come from us. So the way we decide to live our lives and our decisions about what we buy or don’t buy are much more important than who we vote for.”[51]

Carey expressed his distaste for the Bush administration’s management of the Iraq War, specifically on the September 15, 2007, episode of Real Time with Bill Maher. He made donations to Ron Paul’s presidential campaign for the 2008 election.[52] On the September 26, 2008, episode of The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Carey defined “libertarian” to host Craig Ferguson as “a conservative who still gets high.”[53]

Carey has spoken about his various political beliefs in several interviews, and in 1998 he led a “smoke-in” in defiance of California’s newly passed no-smoking ordinance inside bars and restaurants.[54] Carey has hosted a series of mini-documentaries called The Drew Carey Project on reason.tv, an online project of Reason Foundation, a libertarian think tank.[55] The first episode, “Gridlock”, addresses private highway ownership and was released on October 15, 2007. Other episodes discuss topics such as eminent domain, urban traffic congestion, and medical marijuana. Carey also sits on the board of trustees of the Reason Foundation, a libertarian-oriented nonprofit organization.[56]

Yeah, he’s out there on Mars, but he at least isn’t throwing his political brain droppings out on Twitter like Sajak and Woolery have, AFAIK.
