Ever since I came out as a Birther, people who euphemistically stood shoulder to shoulder with me to support Hillary Clinton over Barack Obama during the Democratic Presidential primary process have banished me to the status of ‘other,’ discounting completely the caliber of work I produced throughout those months I devoted to the Herculean task of getting her name called in the roll at the 2008 Democratic Nation Convention. Because every time they ridicule the Birthers, they make fun of me.
Ricki Lieberman, the Democratic fundraiser and staunch party loyalist in NY, once heralded my work on behalf of her ‘girl.’ For example, she got wind of the investigation I conducted just before the DNC Convention involving vote binding states. Voters in these vote binding states enacted laws that require delegates pledged to a candidate as the result of votes cast in the primary, must follow that candidate onto the floor of the Convention. Through my research of all 50 states, I uncovered 13 such vote-binding states. Further, I detected that BO and his troops were harassing HRC pledged delegates in vote binding states, trying to coerce them into changing their votes to him, in advance of the Convention. In other words, by pressuring these pledged HRC delegates in vote binding states to change their minds, BO and his supporters were enticing them to break the law. And I said so, in letters I drafted to the A’sG in all 13 vote binding states, which letters I arranged to be sent by state residents. Ricki was so impressed with my find, she featured my work in the famous email newsletter she distributes via email to party activists throughout the country.
But here is the cartoon Ricki put in the latest edition.

As a Birther, I am now banned from posting on self-identifying PUMA blogs that once featured my work on behalf of their candidate. Here’s what riverdaughter wrote on the Confluence:
We’re not birthers. Sorry, birthers, we don’t care about the birth certificate. In fact, the birth certificate issue works brilliantly for both parties. For the GOP, whipping up a frenzy about it helps them establish a new base of supporters. For the Obama administration, keeping the issue alive makes its detractors look like irrational nutjobs. Take this as a warning, former PUMAs: drop the birther thing before you lose all credibility. You are not going to dislodge Obama with the birth certificate question. For good or ill, he’s the president for the next four years. http://riverdaughter.wordpress.com/2009/08/08/when-fooling-enough-of-the-people-most-of-the-time-stops-working/
And this, spoken during a tirade directed at the Democratic Senate Fundraising Committee, after being contacted by a fundraiser on their behalf:
Get a clue, guys. You took our votes and forced Obama down our throats in your primary rape fantasy and we’re not ever going to forget it. ..You’ll never get a penny from me. And you may never get my vote again. You don’t have to be a crazy nutcase birther to know the devils by the look in their eyes. http://riverdaughter.wordpress.com/2009/08/06/thursday-morning-news-and-note-to-the-dscc/
And this, linking to another article berating us in the NYT:
The Birthers are back. Birther prophylactic: we are not nor ever have been associated with the birther movement. It’s a pointless distraction. I figure that the Clinton Campaign would have been perfectly within its rights to have Obama disqualified if he were not a natural born citizen. It wouldn’t have been character assassination. It would have been a constittuional issue. But Bill Clinton himself said that Obama met the minimum requirements for being president, which I interpret to mean that they looked into it and there’s no THERE there. I don’t know why Obama needs to produce the exact original of his birth certificate to satisfy the birther crowd but I can think of a really good reason why he wouldn’t: it makes the birthers look like a bunch of complete loonies if he occasionally stirs up the issue. Birthers, please don’t try to defend yourselves on this blog. We’re really not interested. http://riverdaughter.wordpress.com/2009/07/23/thursday-morning-breakfast/
The issue that appears to have united people who supported either BO or HRC during the D primary is their mutual contempt for the Birthers. Look at what Annenberg Political Fact Check wrote on their web site, referencing those Birthers who would throw out even the image they posted of a “contemporaneous” newspaper birth announcement to discredit his HI birth:
“Of course, it’s distantly possible that Obama’s grandparents may have planted the announcement just in case their grandson needed to prove his U.S. citizenship in order to run for president someday. We suggest that those who choose to go down that path should first equip themselves with a high-quality tinfoil hat. http://www.factcheck.org/elections-2008/born_in_the_usa.html
For your information, that I identify as a Birther does not mean, there is no more value to hearing anything I have to say. Here is just a hint of work I have done for the ’cause,’ lately.
My investigation revealed, that image of the ‘newspaper announcement’ APFC had been touting as proof of BO’s HI birth had been boosted from another blog, posted there by an anonymous blogger. APFC posted the phantom image on their blog and then, without authenticating that image any further, claimed this “contemperaneous birth announcement” meant the “evidence is clear” BO was born in the U.S. I also demonstrated that in January 2009, BO finessed APFC’s reference to that phantom announcement to try to trick the federal court in Hollister to take “notice” he was an American citizen! And backtracking from those admissions in BO’s written pleadings to the judge, I established that, Nancy Pelosi, Chair of the 2008 DNC Convention, had no documentary proof Barack Obama is as a Natural Born Citizen when she Certified to state elections officials 4 (four) months earlier, he was Constitutionally eligible for the job of President. (See on this blog, RUMORS, LIES, AND UNSUBSTANTIATED ‘FACTS’; and IF DROWNING OUT OPPOSING FACTS IS un-AMERICAN THEN IGNORING UNPLEASANT FACTS MUST BE un-AMERICAN, TOO.) Indeed, as I explained in my posts, that photocopy of the COLB BO put on his FTS web site in June 2008 must have been the best evidence he produced to prove he is a NBC at the time NP signed those Certifications in August 2008, which went to state elections officials so they would print his name on the general election ballot. Because that’s the same ‘evidence’ he later used to try to authenticate himself (as a U.S. citizen), before a federal court judge. (Of course, the best evidence he could have submitted to the court in January 2009 to prove his Constitutional eligibility for POTUS would have been NP’s August 2008 Certification.)
Citizens in some states have enacted laws saying, THE CANDIDATE FOR POTUS FROM THE MAJOR POLITICAL PARTY MUST BE ELIGIBLE FOR THE JOB. If NP and the DNC swore to elections officials in those states that BO was a NBC to get those elections officials to print his name on the general election ballot, before they actually determined whether he was Constitutionally eligible for the job, then they perpetrated election fraud. Again, I am asking citizens in those states to call for their A’sG to begin investigation.
See, just because you make fun of Birthers does not mean, we have nothing worthwhile to say. Nor does stifling dissent through ridicule validate anything you have to say, once you are exposed as a hack organization.
