Where are we, 2012? For some reason, whenever Ron Polland, the Birther formerly known as Polarik, turns up again, it feels like 2008. Maybe because he is still peddling the same lies, at other times updated for the President’s long form birth certificate released last April. This time we take notice, the lying Jerome Corsi gives the lying Polland/Polarik a platform on the Birther rag formerly known as World Net Daily, to take us back to 2008.
Well, 2008 was a very good year. It’s the year the American people elected a damned good president. And we’re going to do it again this year.
Getting back to Polland/Polarik:
In June 2008, the Annenberg Public Policy Center, D/B/A Annenberg Factcheck colluded with the Obama Campaign to create a false identity document for Barack Obama and to conduct a propaganda campaign to prevent Obama’s true identity and citizenship from being known. The document was allegedly a scan image of a Hawaiian Certification of Live Birth. In August 2008, after people questioned its authenticity, Factcheck created a physical document using a printout of the same scan image and took photos of it. Factcheck used the photos along with a fraudulent examination of them to authenticate the same false identity document they created. …
Why is this important?
“Factcheck’s fraudulent story, ‘Born in the USA,’ is important in the election of Barack Obama,” Polland explained. “The Congressional Research Service specifically distributed this report as a legitimate investigation to convince members of Congress that Obama was a legal U.S. citizen and eligible to be president.”
Of course, it is FactCheck’s job to check and provide the facts of a story and the Congressional Research Service’s job to check the facts and provide explanatory legal memos to members of Congress who ask for them, so Congressional staff can figure out what to say to Birther loons, when they call about the Usurpin’ Mofo in the White House. These so-called “Federal Election Commission and Internal Revenue Service challenges” (what does that even mean?) can be expected to have about the success of the zero out of 87 Birther wins appearing on the Birther Case Scorecard.
Brooks Jackson, Director of FactCheck, wrote to Doc Conspiracy:
On advice of counsel, I am losing not one second of sleep over this comical “challenge.”
Donations to FactCheck.org are deductible because we are a part of the University of Pennsylvania, a 501(c)3 organization. So if Polland has actually filed some challenge against FactCheck.org as he claims — and I’ve seen nothing either from him or from the IRS to confirm that — then he’s challenged the wrong legal entity. …
I’m also mystified at his claim to have filed something with the Federal Election Commission, which has no jurisdiction over tax matters.
Polland is also hawking an e-book, Alias Barack Obama: A lie is born.
As my friend Verbalobe says:
On the other hand, Polland never got the full measure of his 15 minutes in the loonlight. He should just be aware that Corsi has been scraping the dirt UNDER the bottom of the barrel for a while now. If your ideas are worth being supported by Corsi in a story in WND, you are pretty much … utterly and completely without hope.
As our dear, departed friend Elliewyatt, well known for her exquisite tact, always said:
