Swiftboat Author Jerome Corsi: Fox News Is ‘Packed With Leftist Commentators’

The paranoid rambling of a madman in the video below…

NewsHounds

Remember when Jerome Corsi was a somewhat regular guest andtopic on Fox News? For a long time, the co-author of the Swiftboat book attacking John Kerry has gotten favorable treatment by the network – something he seems to have forgotten, because now he’s declaring war on the hand that used to feed him. In a recent Youtube rant, Corsi attacks Fox News for being “packed with leftist commentators,” an accusation he seems to base solely on the presence of host Bob Beckel (grudge much?).

On the occasion of Paul Ryan being named as Mitt Romney’s running mate, Corsi said, “Fox may now finally get behind Romney. Fox has been moving to the left. Maybe we’ll finally hear some less of Bob Beckel.”

He later issued a warning to Fox and the rest of the media to change their evil, liberal ways:

It’s an historic opportunity for the Tea Party to tell the establishment, Wall Street Journal included, New York Times, the whole bunch of them, you know they’d better face up to the reality, that the left – trying to please the left, by appearing to sympathize with the left… with Fox, packed with leftist commentators, is going to lose the fundamental audience of America.

How will Fox News take him on without compromising all the smears he’s helped them build? We’re gonna have fun finding out!

Supreme Court Ruling and the Right-Wing Freak-Out Begins

John Roberts   :    http://mariopiperni.com/

As usual, the Mario Piperni website never fails its readers…

Mario Piperni

What happened? I leave for a couple of days and come back to find that all hell has broken loose. My favorite website, the Daily Mauler Caller had this headline to greet me:

Congratulations, Americans: The government owns your bodies

Wow. Being forced to give up ownership of one’s body to a tyrannical government is serious stuff. Hoping to find better news at my second favorite website, I moved on to World Nut Net Daily. Not good. Right below this headline,

Muslim mob stones Christians – in U.S.!

I was shocked and dismayed to find this headline:

Ruling awakens ‘revolutionary fervor’

The World Nut Net Daily is a serious source for honest and balanced news, so when they talk of “revolutionary fervor’, watch out. Any website that gives Chuck Norris and Jerome Corsi space to blog their demented trash, err, enlightened views, knows what they’re talking about. Yes, sir, a revolution is on the way.

Twitter didn’t make me feel any better.

The end of America. Scary. And to let you know how serious he is, Shapiro states that he’s not exaggerating. Very cool of him.

Sigh. Checked in with my favorite right-wing talk radio guy, Limbaugh. I was hoping he could put a positive spin on it all. Nope.

Obamacare is nothing more than the largest tax increase in the history of the world…as of today, the American government can and will seize your private property if you don’t purchase and/or sell what’s been ordered. It’s really breathtaking, what happened today. And it is breathtaking to watch ignoramuses who don’t really understand what happened celebrate it. We have been betrayed and deceived by Congress. We have been betrayed and deceived by the Supreme Court.

There you go. Right-wing response to the Supreme Court ruling in a nutshell: betrayal, revolution and the end of America.

Poor babies. Well at least some of the brighter wingnuts now know what they’re going to do.

And they call them idiots. I wonder why that would be?

UPDATE:

My, my, they’ve really gone off the deep end. Here’s a comment from a Washington Times piece about Republican governors planning on ignoring the Supreme Court ruling on the ACA. The comment is typical of the madness that has overtaken the right beyond what we’ve witnessed over the last 4 years.

All three Branches of the Federal government are now operating outside their Constitutionally enumerated powers.  Therefor, by the Founding Fathers own concerns, the Federal government is null-and-void.  The individual States are now in charge of our government.

Each State should enact Marshal law, withholding all Federal withholding taxes from transfer to Washington!

Marshall law…now there’s a wonderful ideal. These sad fools really don’t know any better. They’re spouting the same crap they hear on Fox and other conservative media. In my more compassionate moments, I almost feel sorry for them.

Sheriff Joe: Birther?

It seems logical to me.  The man is one fry short of a Happy Meal, so whatever he does is crazy as hell anyway.

Salon

Arizona’s “toughest” lawman tells some kooks that he’ll investigate the president’s birth certificate 

Sheriff Joe Arpaio might be a birther, now. A quasi-birther, at least.WorldNetDaily “broke” the “news” that Arizona’s most civil rights-disregarding lawman “has agreed to examine evidence challenging the validity of Barack Obama‘s purported long-form birth certificate in a determination of the president’s eligibility for the 2012 election ballot.” Which certainly sounds like a very good use of the resources of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office, right? There is even a picture of Arpaio with Jerome Corsi, author of “Where’s the Birth Certificate,” a book whose title question was answered twice before publication:

 

Arpaio told the tea-party leaders that he expects political pressure, but he pointed out that as the chief law enforcement officer of Maricopa County, he’s taken an oath to respond to citizens who approach him about enforcing the law.

Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Justin Griffin confirmed to WND that Arpaio is “waiting to receive all the documentation and all the investigative material from Dr. Jerry Corsi, and then he will look into the matter and compare it to the Arizona revised statutes.”

Ha. Ha ha ha. He picked a great time to join this particular conspiracy theory, months after the president released his original birth certificate, to complement the first, perfectly legally valid one he released years ago. In August of 2011 you really have to be a colossal moron to still believe that the president’s birthplace and presidential eligibility are seriously in doubt. So kudos, Sheriff Joe, for either being a colossal moron or being too scared of a small minority of colossal morons to actually say the truth, which is that Barack Obama was born in Hawaii, which is at this point better documented than Arpaio’s own citizenship status. (He looks kinda French, to me.) Even Governor Jan Brewer is smart enough to reject birtherism, and she can barely form sentences.

Arpaio “clarified” his stand by… confirming that he’s looking into it.

“What I have agreed to do, contrary to some published media reports, is simply look at the evidence these people have assembled and examine whether it is within my jurisdiction to investigate the document’s authenticity,” Arpaio said in a written statement Friday.

In the time it took you to write that statement, Sheriff Joe, you could’ve concluded the investigation. With one Google search!

Birthers Sue Esquire for $285M

Keep in mind that the Esquire article was pure satire. 

(I wonder if Jonathan Swift was sued for his marvelous and satirical essay from 1729 called A Modest Proposal?  I doubt it.)

Satire is a common literary form of constructive criticism using wit as it’s primary weapon. (Wiki)

 The Onion is a great source for political satire on a regular basis. I don’t see them getting sued.

Corsi and Farah appear to be facing an uphill battle in the ongoing question and the  interpretation of: Just what is free speech? 

The Daily Beast

President Obama’s birth certificate is out but the birthers aren’t going away: Two prominent birthers are suing Esquire magazine for defamation and damaged business interests.

The complaint by Joseph Farah, editor of WorldNetDaily, and Jerome Corsi, author of Where’s the Birth Certificate? stems from an Esquire parody, headlined “BREAKING! Jerome Corsi’s Birther Book Pulled From Shelves!”

The magazine published the article on its website after President Obama released his birth certificate; many people, however, took it for straight news and the site had to add a note beginning “We committed satire this morning.”

In a statement to Forbes, Esquire notes that the article was marked “humor” and that satire is “an age-old and completely legitimate form of expression.”

Obama Mocks Birthers with Birth Certificate Merchandise

I’m sure the Obama campaign thought of this, but the President had to sign off on it.  You gotta love the Prez’   shrewd move on this issue, as well as his sense of humor.

The Atlanta Post

Did you think the birther issue had been put to rest? Why, of course not! Author Jerome Corsi intends to pick up where Donald Trump left off with his new book, “Where’s the Birth Certificate? The Case that Barack Obama is not Eligible to be President.” Released this week, Corsi claims that he found flaws in Obama’s long form certificate.

Well, this time, Obama and his reelection team are giving Corsi, and anyone else who continues to doubt the legitimacy of his birth certificate, the invisible finger by using the birther nonsense to their advantage—their monetary advantage to be more exact. The Chicago Sun-Times is reporting that the Obama 2012 team is selling mugs and t-shirts with the president’s long form birth certificate.

In an e-mail to the Times Wednesday morning, Obama 2012 deputy campaign manager Julianna Smoot said, “There’s really no way to make this stuff completely go away. The only thing we can do is laugh at it—and make sure as many other people as possible are in on the joke.”

For folks who contribute at least $15 to the campaign, they will receive a “limited edition” Obama birth certificate mug. One side of the mug has the long form certificate, while the other side has a picture of Obama with the words, “Made in the USA.” For those who donate $30, they can look forward to a t-shirt.

If Trump Runs As An Independent

Personally I don’t think Donald Trump will run at all.  I think he will play the press and his admirers like a fiddle until it’s time to reveal his financial data to the election board of his home state. 

I also think he really put his foot in his mouth when he suggested that he had investigators in Hawaii checking out information about the POTUS.

My guess is that he is being led by the nose by famed birther and former “swift boat” creator, Jerome Corsi.

Andrew Sullivan – The Daily Dish

PPP finds that Trump “gets 31% of the Republican vote running as an independent candidate, holding Romney to just 56% within the party”:

It’s highly unlikely that Trump would really end up doing this well as an independent, but even if he just pulled 5-10% it would probably be enough to ensure Obama’s reelection. And these numbers show that if Romney’s the GOP nominee there may be enough consternation on the far right that another third party candidate and not necessarily just Trump could earn enough support from those voters to have a spoiler effect much as Ralph Nader did for Al Gore in 2000. 

Is he that serious? One fears he may be. Or if one is a Democrat, perhaps a licking of the lips is in order. But you never know. This is America. Right-wing populism has its moments. They rarely last; but they often shine brilliantly in the meantime.
