Does Time magazine’s breastfeeding cover go too far?
Following the Time Magazine controversy comes this brilliant parody courtesy of Rush Limbaugh’s staff:
British Prime Minister David Cameron raises fawning obsequiousness to new heights as he recounts his “guy’s night out” with “President Barack” in an address at last evening’s state dinner. Obama proposes a toast to “her magidy” (that’s what he said, then corrects himself) her Majesty Queen Elizabeth…to our dear friends David and Samantha (Cameron)…(raises glass but does not drink) Cheers Everyone! Waiter whisks away glass and prepared notes from lectern and P.M. Cameron rises to speak.
Cameron’s remarks begin at 8:15 on the video. “(Obama) has pressed the reset button on the moral authority of the entire free world” (14:33 on video) Cameron then proposes a toast to Obama and the first lady, and actually drinks.
Such pomp and nonsense totally obscures the fact that Britain is quite nearly finished as a nation of any importance and we here in the U.S.A. should redouble our efforts to ensure we do not emulate Britain’s descent into the quicksands of political correctness and other follies of liberalism.
“President Barack Obama’s long-form birth certificate released by the White House on April 27, 2011, is suspected to be a computer-generated forgery, not a scan of an original 1961 paper document as represented by the White House when the long-form birth certificate was made public,” Arizona’s Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio said at a press conference today in Phoenix.
This is the major preliminary finding of a six-month ongoing Sheriff’s Cold Case Posse law enforcement investigation into the authenticity of Obama’s birth certificate and his eligibility to be president.
Having developed probable cause to believe the long-form birth certificate was most likely a computer-generated forgery, investigators began examining other evidence of President Obama’s life history.
Investigators additionally have developed credible evidence suggesting:
• President Obama’s Selective Service card was most likely a forgery, revealed by an examination of the postal date stamp on the document;
• Records of Immigration and Naturalization Service cards filled out by airplane passengers arriving on international flights originating outside the United States in the month of August 1961, examined at the National Archives in Washington, D.C., are missing records for the week of President Obama’s birth, including the dates Aug. 1, 1961 through Aug. 7, 1961.
Beginning in October 2011, the Sheriff’s Cold Case Posse, consisting of former law enforcement officers and lawyers with law enforcement experience, examined dozens of witnesses and hundreds of documents, as well as taking numerous sworn statements from witnesses around the world.
In August 2011, 250 members of the Surprise, Arizona, Tea Party, residents of Maricopa County, presented a signed petition asking Sheriff Arpaio to undertake the investigation.
The Tea Party members petitioned under the premise that if a forged birth certificate was utilized to obtain a position for Barack Obama on the 2012 Arizona presidential ballot, their rights as Maricopa County voters could be compromised.
The Cold Case investigators further determined that the Hawaii Department of Health has engaged in what Sheriff’s investigators believe is a systematic effort to hide from public inspection whatever original 1961 birth records the Hawaii Department of Health may have in their possession.
“Officers of the Hawaii Department of Health and various elected Hawaiian public officials may have intentionally obscured 1961 birth records and procedures, to avoid having to release to public inspection and to the examination of court-authorized forensic examiners any original Obama 1961 birth records the Hawaii Department of Health may or may not have,” said Mike Zullo, the lead investigator in Sheriff Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse.
The Cold Case investigators have not yet determined who, when, or precisely how the long-form computer-generated birth certificate released on April 27 may have been forged, but investigators say the evidence contained in the computer-generated PDF file released by the White House as well as important deficiencies in the Hawaii process of certifying the long-form birth certificate establish probable cause that a forgery has been committed.
The Cold Case Posse investigators advised Sheriff Arpaio that the forgers most likely committed two crimes: first, in fraudulently creating a forgery that the White House characterized, knowingly or unknowingly, as an officially produced governmental birth record; and second, in fraudulently presenting to the residents of Maricopa County and to the American public at large a forgery the White House represented as “proof positive” of President Obama’s authentic 1961 Hawaii long-form birth certificate.
“A continuing investigation is needed to identify the identity of the person or persons involved in creating the alleged birth certificate forgery, and to determine who, if anyone, in the White House or the state of Hawaii may have authorized the forgery,” Arpaio said.
Among the evidence released at the press conference were five videos the Cold Case Posse produced to demonstrate why the Obama long-form birth certificate is suspected to be a computer-generated forgery.
The videos consisted of step-by-step computer demonstrations using a control document.
The videos were designed to display the testing used by the investigators to examine various claims made by supporters of the April 27 document.
The videos illustrate point-by-point the investigators’ conclusion that the features and anomalies observed on the Obama long-form birth certificate were inconsistent with features produced when a paper document is scanned, even if the scan of the paper document had been enhanced by Optical Character Recognition (OCR) and optimized.
Additionally, the videos demonstrated that the Hawaii Department of Health Registrar’s name stamp and the Registrar’s date stamp were computer-generated images imported into an electronic document, as opposed to actual rubber stamp imprints inked by hand or machine onto a paper document.
“That we were able to cast reasonable suspicions on the authenticity of the Registrar stamps was especially disturbing, since these stamp imprints are designed to provide government authentication to the document itself,” Zullo said, stressing that if the Registrar stamps are forgeries, the document itself is likely a forgery.
The investigators also chronicled a series of inconsistent and misleading representations that various Hawaii government officials have made over the past five years regarding what, if any, original birth records are held by the Hawaii Department of Health.
“As I said at the beginning of the investigation,” Arpaio said, “the president can put all this to rest quite easily. All he has to do is demand the Hawaii Department of Health release to the American public and to a panel of certified court-authorized forensic examiners all original 1961 paper, microfilm, and computer birth records the Hawaii Department of Health has in its possession.”
Arpaio further stressed the Hawaii Department of Health needs to provide, as part of the full disclosure, evidence regarding the chain of custody of all Obama birth records, including paper, microfilm, and electronic records, in order to eliminate the possibility that a forger or forgers may have tampered with the birth records.
Arpaio went on to say the President should also authorize Kapiolani Hospital, the birth hospital listed on the Obama long-form birth certificate, to release any and all hospital patient records for Stanley Ann Dunham Obama, his mother, and for the newly born Barack Obama, in order to provide additional corroboration for the original 1961 birth records held in the Hawaii Department of Health vault.
“Absent the authentic Hawaii Department of Health 1961 birth records for Barack Obama, there is no other credible proof supporting the idea or belief that President Barack Obama was born in Hawaii, as he and the White House have consistently asserted,” Zullo said.
“In fact, absent the authentication of Hawaii Department of Health 1961 birth records for Barack Obama, there is no other proof he was born anywhere within the United States.”
Arpaio concluded the press conference by suggesting a congressional investigation might be warranted and asked that any other law enforcement agency with information referencing this investigation be forwarded to his office.

“There is no Substitute for Victory” General Douglas MacArthur
Note to Obama: Hirohito did not come down to the Battleship Missouri and sign anything! Rachel Abrams at Weekly Standard Blog points out today:
Apparently your grandfather wasn’t there for the Japanese surrender, and thus didn’t take you on his knee when you were a child to teach you all about it. So here’s a little history lesson: See that guy in the picture signing the Japanese Instrument of Surrender on board the USS Missouri? Well, he’s not the Emperor Hirohito, he’s Japanese foreign affairs minister Mamoru Shigemitsu, (see photo below)
My opinion: Any Commander-in-Chief of our Armed Forces who sends our military into war without a clear goal of, and mandate for, “victory” should be removed and impeached! This is a stab in the back to our military who are drilled and taught that their objective is to defeat the enemy and achieve “victory”.
Wagner Todd Huston at NewsBusters writes today:
It is telling that when Barack Obama pictures “victory” he doesn’t see in his head that famous photo of the U.S. Sailor kissing the pretty girl in Times Square on Victory Day. Instead, what is immediately conjured up in Obama’s mind is the bedraggled figure of a beaten Japanese Emperor groveling at the feet of U.S. military might.
Obama’s sympathy seems to be with the Emperor that governed a nation that tried to viciously take over the entire Pacific Rim and enslave many millions of Asian peoples. It is hard to escape the feeling that Obama’s first thought when the word “victory” is broached is of our enemy, his sympathies with them, not us.

Some honest and responsible commentators and bloggers have been understandably reluctant to jump on the “Where’s the Birth Certificate” bandwagon out fear of being labeled cranks and nutjobs. One such person is Hasan Nurullah who blogs at Digital Publius. In a piece dated yesterday he writes, apparently inspired by the Major Stefan Cook business:
Up to and until now, I have steered clear of this whole birth certificate thing,
in an effort to set aside my credulity in believing in the overall
fishiness of all things liberal. But, when you start seeing the
bureaucratically obsessed U.S. army revoking orders without the proper
protocol being met…
For an administration touting their commitment to openness and
accountability, what is the big deal about showing a long form birth
certificate? Here in Detroit, if you lose your birth certificate, you
can go to the health department at Herman Keifer hospital, and they
will send you a new certified copy. They don’t have a health department
anywhere in the state of Hawaii if he lost his?
Never has there been a president more reticent about sharing records of the
past. It seems that his birth certificate is not the only document
unavailable for scrutiny, his records from Occidental College Columbia
University and Harvard Law have also proven difficult to obtain.
At this point, I would be reticent in believing any documents presented so
late in the game, how long does it take to forge credible documents
today? I fear that I may have to jump on the birth certificate crowds
bandwagon until the President sends a clear statement by asking
michelle to fish it out of the family safe. Lets go Mr. President ante
up, you want to play the hand before showing that you are in possession
of the stakes you need to join the game.
Also from yesterday’s news:
White House Liar-in-Chief Robert Gibbs, when questioned once again by Lester Kinsolving, continues his dissembling and obfuscation on the Obama birth certificate issue:
No, Lester, let’s finish this one. Do all of your listeners
and the listeners throughout this country the service to which any
journalist owes those listeners, and that is the pursuit of the noble truth.
And the noble truth is that the President was born in Hawaii, a state
of the United States of America. And all of this incredible
back-and-forth — I get e-mails today from people who inexplicably can
figure out very easily the White House e-mail address, and want proof
of where the President was born.
(source: Citizens against Pro-Obama Media Bias)
Imagine having to strengthen the truth by calling ones truth “noble”. Such antics point to falsehood rather than truth. Of course he could not say “honest to God truth” or something similar. That would be politically incorrect. Here’s the Audio;
more audio (Bret Baier on Fox).
When someone with Gibbs’s history of obfuscation has to qualify truth with noble I smell a lie. Another exchange between Kinsolving and Gibbs:
Kingsolving says what’s on the internet [what Gibbs referred to as barry’s birth certificate] is not a birth certificate.
Gibbs I KNOW.
End of story. He admits on the official record – in the transcript and
on video and eyewitness testimony – that he knows that useless COLB is
not a birth certificate...
