No wonder he was just given the new "Most trusted news man in America" mantle, in a Time Magazine Poll.
I won't repeat some of the same videos and links that Jon shows in his piece but here in my state of Missouri, we also have had a bill, that has gathered some signatures and one name is pretty well known.
Cynthia Davis, yes, that Cynthia, who wants children to go to work so they won't be hungry, says elderly and disabled people 55 and older will get a job if God wants them to so there is no need for the training money in the Recovery Package, now is a "Birther". Give the little lady a hand.
FiredUpMissouri gives us this:
In 2009, Davis signed on to a lawsuit alleging that President Barack Obama is actually an Indonesian man named Barry Soetoro who has illegally usurped the American presidency.
Now that is just one of many things they say about the esteemed Ms Davis... but that's for another day. This lady is really trying to give Michelle Bachmann a run for her money, trust me on this one. Anything you want to know about her.. just click that link and there is lots of info right there on her, like her child wandering the highways, fathers are not natural nurturers, and several other stupid things she has said or done..but since she is only a local legislator, she doesn't get the play that Bachmann does.
Now, Cynthia is not the only one who is on this bill here in Missouri. On her barely-coherent website, Orly Taitz lists legislators Mike McGhee (R-Odessa), Reps. Tim Jones (R-Eureka), Casey Guernsey (R-Bethany) and Cynthia Davis (R-Pluto). Yes, Orly Taitz, Dentist, Lawyer, and Real Estate agent.
A recently posted biography of Taitz gave a very detailed look inside her mind and inside the obsession of her so called "exposure of a usurper". Where she comes up with it I have no clue. I think it is all about money, and the fact they are preying on the fears of the few who can't stand the thought of a black man in the White House.
Here is what she says is her mission to destroy and expose Barack Obama:
She calls Obama a “usurper” and an “arrogant jerk from Africa and Indonesia.” She called a judge an “idiot.” And she calls anyone who stands in her way an “Obama thug.” Taitz has built a sizable following on her blog; in the comments for each post at orlytaitzesq.com, you can read a few more names for people whom Taitz doesn’t like: “traitors,” “Muslims,” “terrorists.”
In the past eight months, Taitz’s face has become one of the most recognizable of what its adherents prefer to call the “eligibility” movement, and her actions have been some of the most controversial. Her end goal is simple—to remove Obama from office—but her methods have sometimes put her at odds with other anti-Obama activists. And that’s not to mention the legion of Obama supporters who have assembled evidence claiming that Taitz is, at best, a liar and, at worst, treasonous...
Aside from World Net Daily, more traditional conservative media sources—not to mention politicians—have condemned the birth-certificate question as a waste of time. In January, talk-show host Michael Medved classified Taitz and the other eligibility attorneys as “crazy, nutburger, demagogue, money-hungry, exploitive, irresponsible, filthy conservative imposters.”
Here is an update from OCBlogs about Orly Taitz that I just found.
Even if you read every one of the 4,000-n'-something words of this week's cover story about Dr. Orly Taitz, Esq., our local dentist crusading to have Barack Obama removed from office, you still won't have gotten the full Orly story. She's a busy woman with many pots cooking. So here are a few more Taitz tidbits:
More Obama crimes: Taitz spends a lot of time talking about a few perceived presidential transgressions that didn't make it into my article. Her seeming favorite piece of evidence against Obama: According to online database Lexis Nexis, there are 25 different "Barack Obamas" in America, each with a different social security number. What's that mean? In Taitz's mind, it's evidence of forgery, identity theft and duplicity on the part of Mr. Obama. In someone else's mind, though, it might not be that interesting. After all, eight people ran as "Barack Obama" in Brazil's election last year, and there's been a boom of Barack-named babies recently. Plus, there's a good chance that at least 24 people nationwide have pulled a Santos E. Halper and jokingly filled out some of their docs with the president's name.
Taitz also has major suspicions about the fact that when the Illinois Bar application asked if the applicant had ever used an alias, Obama didn't fess up and put down his childhood moniker, "Barry Soetoro," (though there's little evidence that Barry was a legal alias for him, nor that that was what the application was asking for). She think his selective service registration information is forged, even though there's no doubt they he is registered for selective service. And as for that infamous Certificate of Live Birth: Taitz's objections range from the fact that the certificate's file number was redacted in the original scan posted by the campaign, to the "fact" (details) that FactCheck.org, who verified the veracity and physical existence of the COLB, is affiliated with Obama.
Speaking of the COLB, it's worth noting that Obama's short-form certificate -- the one eligibility-questioners say is inadequate -- is the only certificate now issued by the State of Hawaii.
She's a traveler. It can't be understated how often Dr. Taitz is on the road. Off the top of my head, I know that she has visited Washington D.C., Washington state, Texas, Louisiana, Georgia, Tennessee and Oklahoma. She says she has gotten more than 10 state representatives to sign on to her cause, but the one I talked to -- Mike Ritze of Oklahoma -- was very complimentary of Orly but was still mulling whether to become a plaintiff.
About that "service" thing: There's a quote from the cover story saying Taitz "doesn't file anything... she drops stuff off." That's largely a reference to Keyes v. Obama, the case Taitz has pending in U.S. District Court in Santa Ana. In order to sue a person, you have to serve them the papers from the suit in person. Taitz tried to have one of her volunteers serve Barack Obama, but she ran into some difficulty when secret service and the White House fences wouldn't let her get close enough. Still, she dropped off the materials with a mail clerk (didn't get his name, though). Now, the court has notified Taitz that she hasn't properly served the defendant as pursuant to federal rules governing how to sue a government official. In response, on Sunday Taitz submitted up a motion asking the court to reconsider, accept her previous service and render a default judgment against Obama. "It seems to the Plaintiffs unfair and unjust that a Judge could merely set aside a party's default on a whim..." Taitz wrote in her motion. "..the Court has "merely" ordered the Plaintiff to start litigation all over again, as if the past six months had never happened or were no more important than six grains of tidal sand in the surfs at Malibu."
She's a fan of Israel. That's where she met her husband, after all. Taitz has served as a delegate for AIPAC, the most influential pro-Israel lobby in America. Taitz sees AIPAC as "apolitical," but doesn't deny that she has great concerns about Obama's policies towards Israel. There's been speculation in the "anti-birther" blogosphere that Israel is the core reason for her Obama antipathy, but it's probably not so simple to boil her motivations down to one cause. It should be noted, though, that the "eligibility" movement contains both Jewish activists like Taitz and people like famed anti-semite Andy Martin and James W. Von Brunn, the white supremacist who shot up the Holocaust Museum.
She has a black belt in Taekwondo. And if you don't believe her, she published the certificate.
Like I said, they are all nuts, over the top, crazy. The birth certificate has been shown on line for over a year. It has been examined, touched, felt, certified, even by the Republican Governor of Hawaii, and it is still not enough. That is why I say it is about money and race. No other reason makes sense, when everything else that could be done has been done and it is not enough for these people.
But, Jon Stewart shows how ignorant they really are. Of course the ones who need to see this won't watch it.. but that's okay...I love it and so will the ones who do see it.
