The birth certificate is a forgery

Karl Denninger declares that Mr. Farah was right again. The birth certificate released by the White House is a forgery.

This is not in the realm of probability stacking any more. The page portion here is curved as it is allegedly “scanned” from a book page. The curvature is consistent with both the margin lines and the printed word “Sex.”

The typed word Male shows no curvature in the baseline of the text; this is physically impossible if the word “Male” was originally printed upon the same page that was scanned.

I’m not sure which is more shocking. The fact that the Obama administration was dumb enough to release such a bad forgery or the fact that it believed the American people were collectively dumb enough to accept it without actually going over it with a fine-toothed comb.

Mr. Farah is going to need a new billboard. “Where’s the REAL birth certificate?”

The OC is famous

There are books being written about him and everything! Seriously, there is now an Amazon Kindle book entitled Science Fiction and Bruce Bethke, which is described as follows: “Bruce Bethke is a computer programmer who would originate cyberpunk, a dark genre in science fiction. In this book, we will explore his life and science fiction.”

I wouldn’t recommend buying it, however. And I can only marvel at the indefatigable creativity of the con artist. It truly knows no bounds.

DeMaurice further declowns himself

Fortunately for NFL fans, the Obama lawyer’s plan to point a gun to the head of the existing NFL structure appears to be falling apart:

[E]ven with his effort to lift the lockout on the verge of sleeping with the fishes, Smith continues to talk tough. “It’s a disappointment obviously that as far as we can tell this is the first sports league in history who sued to not plays its game,” Smith told reporters after Monday’s ruling. “Congratulations.”

We’re not sure what that means.

The league hasn’t sued anyone. The league wants to impose economic pressure on the players via a lockout, and the players decertified and filed an antitrust lawsuit in the hopes of blocking the lockout. Today’s ruling that the lockout won’t be lifted pending resolution of the appeal by the Eighth Circuit hardly represents the NFL suing to not plays its game.

With a reversal of Judge Nelson’s ruling now looming, Smith’s comments likely have less to do with shaping public opinion and more to do with scrambling to keep the players unified, even if doing so requires Smith to distort the facts in the hopes of playing to the players’ emotions.

Even those who initially took the side of the players have to realize now that the players, or at least their representatives, simply do not have the good of the game at heart. The owners may be every bit as greedy, but at least they have the long-term view and the enlightened self-interest to understand that the goose that lays the golden eggs is to be fed and treated well, not slaughtered. Smith’s strategy is to “win” by threatening to destroy the league in its current format and turn it into the English Premiership, where only two or three teams have a reasonable chance of winning each year.

Police are violent, vulgar, ignorant scum

Where human liberty is concerned, they are now almost invariably on the wrong side. They are servants of the State who have become the enemies, not only of the citizenry, but of human freedom:

On a mild February afternoon, Fiorino, 25, decided to walk to an AutoZone on Frankford Avenue in Northeast Philly with the .40-caliber Glock he legally owns holstered in plain view on his left hip. His stroll ended when someone called out from behind: “Yo, Junior, what are you doing?”

Fiorino wheeled and saw Sgt. Michael Dougherty aiming a handgun at him.

What happened next would be hard to believe, except that Fiorino audio-recorded all of it: a tense, profanity-laced, 40-minute encounter with cops who told him that what he was doing – openly carrying a gun on the city’s streets – was against the law.

“Do you know you can’t openly carry here in Philadelphia?” Dougherty asked, according to the YouTube clip.

“Yes, you can, if you have a license to carry firearms,” Fiorino said. “It’s Directive 137. It’s your own internal directive.”

Fiorino was right. It was perfectly legal to carry the gun. But that didn’t matter to the cop:

Fiorino offered to show Dougherty his driver’s and firearms licenses. The cop told him to get on his knees.

“Excuse me?” Fiorino said.

“Get down on your knees. Just obey what I’m saying,” Dougherty said.

“Sir,” Fiorino replied, “I’m more than happy to stand here -“

“If you make a move, I’m going to f—— shoot you,” Dougherty snapped. “I’m telling you right now, you make a move, and you’re going down!”

“Is this necessary?” Fiorino said.

It went on like that for a little while, until other officers responded to Dougherty’s calls for backup.

Fiorino was forced to the ground and shouted at as he tried to explain that he had a firearms license and was legally allowed to openly carry his weapon.

“You f—— come here looking for f—— problems? Where do you live?” yelled one officer.

“I’m sorry, gentlemen,” Fiorino said. “If I’m under arrest, I have nothing left to say.”

“F—— a——, shut the f— up!” the cop hollered.

The cops discovered his recorder as they searched his pockets, and unleashed another string of expletives.

Fiorino said he sat handcuffed in a police wagon while the officers made numerous phone calls to supervisors, trying to find out if they could lock him up.

When they learned that they were in the wrong, they let him go.

It is vital – absolutely vital – to record your EVERY interaction with the police. If possible, the recorded interactions should be live-streamed to a safe server outside the jurisdiction – this is an iPhone / Android app that I’ve been contemplating for some time now and which I believe is going to become increasingly necessary for Americans as the various levels of government get ever more paranoid and desperate for revenue.

I have to admit, I’m almost looking forward to seeing how the strutting bully boys and bravos with badges who are so violently high-handed in their dealings with everyday Americans panic when they are forced to deal with the anti-police tactics of the Mexican cartels, whose activities are gradually spilling across the border courtesy of the present bi-factional regime’s de facto open immigration policies.

Don’t get me wrong. It will be a bloody mess, a political disaster, and it won’t be fun for anyone. But it will be impossible to say that any of the parties involved don’t deserve what they’ll be getting.
