Card Trick: The New Attack on Obama’s Citizenship

Veracity Stew

There is a new attack on President Obama’s citizenship and education being circulated via email among  conservatives. The email includes an image of a Columbia University identification card for a foreign student named Barry Soetoro. The card includes the photo of Barack Obama.

Columbia ID showing Barack Soetoro / Foreign Student

The email’s author states:

“Could this be the reason his ‘classmates’ don’t remember him, or why his records can’t be found? Perhaps he was not even ‘Barack Obama’ at the time!”

First of all — many of his former classmates, as well as professors, remember Barack Obama while he attended Columbia University.

Secondly — Of course there are records of Obama’s time at Columbia. That’s just absurd.

Thirdly — The perpetrator of this latest attack isn’t very talented when it comes to faking an identification. The one included in the email is a fake and here’s why…

  1. The fake Columbia ID above is not even the design or format used on student IDs during the time Barack Obama was a student at Columbia from 1981-83.
  2. The digital ID card format show on the fake idea wasn’t even used at Columbia until 1996.

The fake ID is simply an altered version of a card issued to another student at Columbia in 1998 (as shown below):

The real 1998 ID used for the fake. Note the student ID number.

Indiana Senate Candidate: Obama Deserves All Blame For Bad Economy, No Credit For Its Improvement

I have to ask, is there an extra chromosome that conservatives have?  I mean honestly, is there a “stupid” gene that they possess  in which we progressives are thankfully, not privy to?

Think Progress

Since President Obama took office in January 2009, Republicans have been quick to heap blame on him for every bit of poor economic news, no matter how large or small. In recent months, however, with jobs numbers improving and signs that the economy is rebounding becoming more evident, the same Republicans haven’t been as quick to praise the president.

Richard Mourdock, the insurgent Republican Senate candidate in Indiana who is locking in a primary contest against Sen. Richard Lugar (R), took a similar tack this week at the Conservative Political Action Conference, telling ThinkProgress that while Obama’s policies were responsible for making the economy worse early in his term, the recent improvement has occurred in spite of Obama’s policies:

KEYES: If the economy does continue to improve over the next few months, is that something you’d be willing to give President Obama credit for, or not?

MOURDOCK: The American economy is incredibly resilient because Americans are incredibly resilient. It won’t be because of President Obama when we see recovery, it will be in spite of President Obama. He wants to add more and more layers of government, more and more government sector unions. Those are killing our economy. And while it’s possible we might see some recovery, it would be doing a whole lot more if we were rolling back the size of government.

The Mourdock stance is common in the GOP — presidential candidate Mitt Romney took a similar view following the January jobs report, as did House Speaker John Boehner.

The facts, however, tell a different story. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, despite Republican claims, has been a success, and since its implementation, the economy has added jobs for 23 consecutive months. The auto bailout, another favorite Republican target, hasalso worked, saving thousands of jobs and returning American automakers to profitability for the first time in a decade.

If anything, the economy is improving in spite of the best efforts of the Republicans Mourdock is trying to join in Congress. Republicans have targeted positive economic programs that benefit the less fortunate — like food stamps and unemployment insurance — for spending cuts, all while blocking other Obama proposals — like the American Jobs Act — that experts say would have had a positive effect on the nation’s economic recovery.

Oh, for Fox sake! Wingnuts disgrace Whitney Houston’s [Death] with massive N-bombing

Image Hosting by PictureTrail.com

As much as I hate the content of what I’m about to report here (via Daily Kos) this story must be exposed.  Warning, these people hate Blacks and show it in every possible way…

Daily Kos - MinistryOfTruth

I said it before, I’ll say it again, when America elected a black man as President, it broke the brains of the racist people.

Case in point, Fox News. They pander to an increasingly openly racist and bigoted base. They can’t help but be blatantly racist after 40 years of Southern Strategy social conditioning, even if it means showing zero respect to the recently deceased. Take this as a disgusting example.

H/t to littlegreenfootballs.com

Singer Whitney Houston Dies at 48 | Fox News.There are almost 5000 comments posted in the thread — these are from the first few pages. Notice that the racist bastards deliberately misspell their slurs or insert random spaces, so they aren’t caught by word filters. And many of the worst comments have numerous “likes” from other commenters.

   A tragedy is when someones passes away from a terminal disease or something else that no one saw coming.Whitney is just an inferior lo w life ni gg er that needed to go,no tragedy,no loss.    […]

Any death is a tragedy you heartless bástard.

[…]

not nignogs their death is a plus

[…]

SHe couldn’t even sell issues of “the national enquirer” anymore. Everyone was tired of the TNB. Niqqer flaps her lips and screeches, niqqer becomes rich. Niqqer ends up nearly broke after spending all of her money. Niqqer in constant fights and drug binges. Niqqer ODs when she learns she’s nearly broke and she is so wasted physically she can’t make another album. Niqqer hit the end of the road, niqqer thinking and niqqer behavior led her to where she had nothing. She couldn’t face life without the “bling bling”, she knew she would never have any more “kaching kaching”

I am now patiently waiting for the grand messiah Obama to have a blk fundraiser in honor of Whitley with Kevin Costner as guest of honor with all the Hollywood elites invited along with Alan Colmes, Al Sharpton, Jeremia Wright, Charles Rangel, etc. with a menu featuring blk eyed peas, grits, Imported Kobe steak, Dom Perignon, sweet potato pie and a mus lll im scarf as a momento of this great occasion.

Of course the door prize will be an all expense paid trip to Kenya to visit the Obama tribe and birthplace of his ancestors while the American people still look for this imposter’s birth certificate in Hawaii !!!

[…]

This is typical of the blk gene pool; it happens all the time. They cannot handle fame and fortune whether it’s derived from music, acting, sports or just plain entertainment. Too much fame and too much money at one time will ki ll ll you.

How many blk people have died from drugs including alcohol that have been in the sports and the entertainment industry or screwed up their married lives like Tiger Woods or worse, OJ Simpson !!!

This is the same disease that got Obama voted into the White House.

[…]

At this point, they don’t even try to hide it anymore. This is who they are. Openly racist, totally out of touch with the majority of America, and their number one policy seems to be that if you are not a dittohead just like them, then they fucking hate you.

In short, they hate you. Period.They masquerade their bullshit in the words of Jesus and the all-knowing free market, but it is transparent what motivates them. Not love for their fellow man, not love for their fellow citizen, not love for country- what motivates them is hate for the other.

You.

They fucking hate you. They want you, and everyone who speaks for you, and every institution that represents your values, whether it be Planned Parenthood or food banks or ACORN- you name it. They want it destroyed.

I just do not understand why more people do not recognize this. The Republicans have declared total war on America, and people are responding like this is politics as usual.

They have declared war on the America that doesn’t fit in with what Rush Limbaugh tells them, but more than anything they have declared war on sanity. Nothing says that this is not politics like usual the way the revolting behavior detailed above does.

And they all watch the same news channel. Consistently the least informed people in America. Consistently the most hatefully blind, willfully ignorant, easily deceived people you could find. Not everyone who watches Fox News is racist, but racists sure do feel comfortable watching Fox News.

At this point, the GOP base is just to the left of Fred Phelps and his clowns, and yet the wingnuts just don’t get it. It’s not your candidates, Mitch Daniels or Chris Christie can’t save you. It’s you, Republicans.   The problem is you.
