yogi, I'm out of usurper. Give me some more!

That article was printed April 29, 2011, the day Jerome Corsi's book on his birth certificate was published. One week (4/22/11) before Corsi's book was to be published Obama "showed" his birth certificate after constantly saying he couldn't because the State Of Hawaii would not permit him. He was saying he could not show his personal birth certificate because of the State's rules.

Have you ever known a state that would not sell a copy of their birth certificate for a couple of bucks to anyone born in that state?

That article also only mentions one "expert". Many experts have entered the scene and found too many false prints on the "birth certificate". A big question is why was it shown in several layers of print.

And by the way, have you heard of the findings of Sheriff Joe's Cold Posse Search?

Question: If you was sitting in, or running for, the highest office in this nation, would you refuse to let the people know who you are? Common sense should tell you you wouldn't unless you had a desperate reason.

When the question first arose, Barry put an unknown form in his file on the internet. It showed his father's race as African. When did African become a race? It didn't show where he was born nor the what doctor was involved.

All of that babbling and you couldn't use the word "usurp" at least once?

By: Blanketnazi2 on 8/31/12 at 10:09

We have addressed this several times, yogi. Unlike you, I don't care to have to constantly repeat myself to a stubborn old imbecile. You base your posts on fringe websites not facts. btw...pour yourself a tall glass of grow up while you're at it, old man.

In a stunning development one day after the release of Where's the Birth Certificate? The Case that Barack Obama is not Eligible to be President, by Dr. Jerome Corsi, World Net Daily Editor and Chief Executive Officer Joseph Farah has announced plans to recall and pulp the entire 200,000 first printing run of the book, as well as announcing an offer to refund the purchase price to anyone who has already bought either a hard copy or electronic download of the book.

Loner, I know you read the Israeli newspapers.. do you think Israel will strike Iran before the election?
If they do, which candidate do you think it would benefit?
I'm thinking it gets Obama reelected.

Excellent question, Slack.....nobody really knows what US-educated Bibi Netanyahu has up his tailored sleeves.

If the Jewish State attacks the Islamic Republic of Iran before the US elections, it will become the over-arching issue in that election. Obama will be forced to immediately come to the aid of the Israelis...the Iranians will launch missiles...Israel's Iron Dome and Arrow 2 systems are not fool proof shields....if Obama hesitates, he will be accused of dithering....Romney would then be the beneficiary of the Israeli attack.

If Obama immediately whups some Iranian ass....Shock & Awe II.....and if there is no significant loss of US personnel, then Obama will be the beneficiary

Lots of "ifs" in that response, Slack...my crystal balls are still packed away.

What do you think will happen?

By: yogiman on 8/31/12 at 10:13

Tell me Blanketnazi2,

What do you know about the man going by the name Barack Obama? Haven't you ever wondered why he refuses to identify himself, like explaining why his papers identify someone else? Why the search program identifies a dead man to the SSN he is presenting as his?

You see what you see, and I see what I see. We ask different questions and views and each apparently think the other is wrong.

We have 67 days now to see which one is right. I can't wait.

By: Loner on 8/31/12 at 10:17

Thanks for the link, Bfra.....looks like somebody will be eating crow....tastes just like shredded paper and ink.

When I was in Sherman, NY, a saw a sign that read, "Americans versus Obama" with an arrow pointing towards the local watering hole...I sauntered into the gin mill and asked about the signage...the locals claim it's a national movement...the slogan and the signs are spreading, according to those fellas.

I'll Google it.

By: bfra on 8/31/12 at 10:24

Loner - yogi must have bought the first copy of the now obselete book & reads it like his Bible daily. The original article states the book was based on too much false information. But then yogi doesn't understand the difference between "facts" & "lies".

By: Loner on 8/31/12 at 10:27

"Americans versus Obama", when in quotes, gets only 74 hits....some nutsy stuff....you gotta ask, "What's the Reason for the Treason?"

An earlier version of this idea, "Americans versus Lincoln", in the 1860's, had a disastrous effect on the republic.....hopefully, the Secret Service is monitoring these modern-day treasonous "Americans".

Any local chapters of the "Americans versus Obama" klan?

By: slacker on 8/31/12 at 10:33

Loner, I think Romney hopes it stays as is for the time being.
I think Israel is bluffing, but what do I know? I gather my military intelligence from my bookie.

By: Loner on 8/31/12 at 10:38

Hey, Donald Trump got sucked into the Usurper Craze too......like I said, too much money corrupts the mind as well as the soul....in my humble opinion.

So, where are the more articulate righties today? Where are Dover, Govseptic, Rasp and Galt? Maybe hung over from the party in Tampa?

The Convention in Tampa...Screwing Gramma and Grampa.....the setting was perfect...without Medicare, Social Security and Medicaid, the State of Florida would become uninhabitable for the vast majority of its current residents....a great venue for promising entitlement cuts for the elderly and the poor....again, the GOP just did not think it through....Paul Ryan's promise to cut the bennies went over like a wet fart in a pristine Cathedral.

By: pswindle on 8/31/12 at 10:43

I have been watching Conventions for years, and this one was a complete failure. I don't care how hard they tried to make Mitt look human and electable they just failed. Clint put the finally touches on a sinking convention.

By: Loner on 8/31/12 at 10:53

Slack, the polls show that Romney is down in the battleground states...and time is running out...the "bounces" are not very high or for very long....Sheldon Adelson and PM Netanyahu may have a plan to pull Bishop Romney's fat out of the fire....by pulling America's fat into Israel's eternal fires.

The fires of religious fervor are feeding fuel to the faith-based conflagration and a yarmulke-wearing Bishop Romney has sworn fealty to the Israeli Prime Minister.

The Republicans are playing with fire...let us hope that they just burn themselves and don't set the whole joint afire....the so-called Aztec-Mayan prophecies of doomsday in 2012 may be fulfilled by way of a horrifying and unforeseen sudden nuclear exchange....and the GOP reaches out to the Armageddon Expediters.

It's mass hysteria.

By: Captain Nemo on 8/31/12 at 10:56

Stop your lying yogi, you never showed up yourself. I even posted that I wasn't going to be there because never said that you would. Then it was the day when you found that I would not be there you posted your lie.

Well I am 30 miles from Knoxville now and I am looking forward to seeing you. I let you know when I get closer.

By: Loner on 8/31/12 at 11:08

Slack...for you:

Headline in Jerusalem Post: "Ya'alon: US is undermining military threat against Iran"

08/31/2012 13:25

Sub-head: "Vice premier says mixed messages from foreign powers help discredit the military option against Iranian nuclear facilities."


I am banned at the JPost...I'd love to comment on that board....with "allies' like the Jewish State, who needs enemies?

Looks like our "allies" are thinking about dropping the bluff...the huff and the puff...they are girding themselves for war with Iran in the near future....they know that the US Congress will back them at the 100% level, regardless of what they do...no matter who is POTUS.

Israel is a loose cannon on a rolling, pitching deck....her nuclear touch hole may be burning....clear the area!

The Zionist Jews simply want Holocaust revenge....and they are not all that particular about who the whipping boy will be...they seem to hate us all....they appear to suffer from a collective some form of post-traumatic stress syndrome.....and the Israeli politicians have exploited that trait for the past 64 years.

By: Loner on 8/31/12 at 11:15

Pswindle says that the GOP ticket is Dead On Arrival....judging from the moribund gaggle of malcontents gathered in Tampa, I'd say that the Romney-Ryan team is a zombie-like creation...a re-animated Reagan-Bush?

As we all know, you can't kill a zombie.....hopefully, the Democrats have a big can of Zombie-B-Gone stashed away....they may need it.. Zombies are persistent.

By: Loner on 8/31/12 at 11:18

Uh, oh....the Captain is closing in on the troll's home turf....gentlemen, let's not get carried away...in a body bag.

May cooler heads prevail.

By: yogiman on 8/31/12 at 11:21

I know you all are a bunch of Obama loving idiots so willing to support someone when you don't even know their legal name and make no effort to find out who in the hell they are.

You might listen to him talking to the Russian President and hear what he has to say.


Try it, you'll love it.

By: slacker on 8/31/12 at 11:26

Nemo, like Elvis.. will strike a karate pose. yogi will drop his grape soda & slim jim, and run like the wind.. a slow breeze.

By: bfra on 8/31/12 at 11:27

Loner - Nemo will be safe, I am sure yogi is well hid & shaking like a leaf. Anybody with a mouth like his, isn't usually big on bravey.

By: slacker on 8/31/12 at 11:27

s/h/b drink.. we don't say soda here.

By: bfra on 8/31/12 at 11:34

yogi - Gets up every morning, puts "false reports about Obama" in search, to start his day. Then, thru out the day, the most outlandish false sites he finds, cuts & paste them to this board.

By: Loner on 8/31/12 at 11:43

OK...Nemo is safe....Slacker and Bfra are confident of that, so I'll quit worrying.

The Burch board is still active...hopefully, Mike will show up and respond.

I just noticed that the major NCP glitch is gone...when we post, the thing comes up right away and is marked, "NEW"...navigation is much easier now....thanks, Webmaster.

By: Loner on 8/31/12 at 11:45

My bad, the glitch is gone on the Burch board, but still exists here....maybe it's renovation time at the NCP, one board at a time?

By: Loner on 8/31/12 at 11:58

I gotta roll, kids....see ya later!

By: bfra on 8/31/12 at 12:08

Loner - Roll easy if you are on the thumper, cars don't respect motor cycles.

By: dargent7 on 8/31/12 at 12:08

Should of labeled it, "Cliff Notes For Dummies..."
It's obvious this fool will never recant his testimony.
"Who is this person..." is really old. "Why won't he show us his papers..."? Try pride.
Yogi's never gone to college, much less graduated from H.S.
If he did, he'd know what it takes "papers wise" to enter, much less teach, at any collegient University.
Obama didn't get his J.D. "on-line" or at Oral Roberts University, Pat Robertson's School of Higher Thought". Or, Tenn State College of Diesel Science & Manifolds.
I think Harvard is top of the line in the USA. They check you out.
Yogi should start making a case for Marco Rubio whose own admission his Cuban father came to America illegally.
Romney's dad is a Mexican and Rubio's is a Cuban. All ok in the "Birther Handbook for Nutz". Obama's dad is Kenyan..."that's where we draw the line".

By: yogiman on 8/31/12 at 12:49

I'll repeat: You had better go back to school, dargent7. Romney's father and mother were American citizens. Romney's father was born in Mexico to American citizens.

If Romney's father was a Mexican, how was he elected to serve as governor in Michigan? He couldn't have been.

Rubio's parents came from Cuba legally after Castro took over from the dictator who was in power at that time. They had Marco before they became naturalized citizens. He isn't a natural born citizen. He is a native born citizen.

There has been those in congress who have been trying, for years, to change the meaning of "natural born citizen". They haven't got it done yet.

By: Captain Nemo on 8/31/12 at 1:47

I am leaving the rest area just inside the Smith County line yogi. It should take me about 10 minutes or so. If that is not enough time I'll wait a few minutes more but not to much longer. i want to get home.

By: Captain Nemo on 8/31/12 at 2:00

I'm here yogi.

By: yogiman on 8/31/12 at 2:11

It's funny. Why hasn't the media reported this?

It seems Obama stopped in at Master Lock in Milwaukee WI last week. He was walking the plant and stopped to talk with a plant employee and looked up at the banner hanging on the wall and said to the worker and the people around him, "it is great to be in a union shop, especially one as old as this union is"--- pointing to the banner. He then said, "A union shop since 1848"--- and then he went on to talk on what that banner stood for and how important it was to display it and show your union support.

The worker then said to Obama that it was the flag of the State of Wisconsin - - which was founded in 1848, and that the shop was Non-Union.

This was only reported by a local radio station in Milwaukee (1130AM) and not by the major news networks. They apparently didn't want to embarrass this "got no frigging clue" President!

Since they didn't do their job of reporting on this presidential visit, the only way for the news to get around is for the people to post it on the internet.

The White House media said he skipped Wisconsin and just went to Minn and Chicago. HA!

Just wondering: Has he visited all 58 states yet?

By: Captain Nemo on 8/31/12 at 2:14

Come on yogi, are you going to another no show.

The price of fuel is3.54, the place is swamped with people and no troll to be seen.

By: Captain Nemo on 8/31/12 at 2:16

Why is yogi hiding and not over here. Because he is a liar and a coward.

By: bfra on 8/31/12 at 2:17

Nemo - He is still posting, so he is hiding out in his shack & didn't intend to show up. He has no common sense or backbone.

By: Captain Nemo on 8/31/12 at 2:20

We all know what is going to take place next, I am going to leave and then yogi gets courage and says he came over but I was not here.

By: Captain Nemo on 8/31/12 at 2:22

I did not think he has ever had anything much less a backbone.

Time is running out yogi.

By: Captain Nemo on 8/31/12 at 2:22

I did not think he has ever had anything much less a backbone.

Time is running out yogi.

By: Captain Nemo on 8/31/12 at 2:24

He will post about my double post and change the subject. lol

By: Captain Nemo on 8/31/12 at 2:27

It has been almost 50 minuets since got here and 30 minuets since his last post.

By: Captain Nemo on 8/31/12 at 2:32

Loner was worried.

It is time for me to go and yogi will clime victory. lol

It is 3 30 and no yogi.

Have a great weekend people.

By: bfra on 8/31/12 at 2:32

Nemo - He is still posting his lies, so he knows you are there!

By: Captain Nemo on 8/31/12 at 2:33

It looks as if it is about to rain, in Smith County.

By: yogiman on 8/31/12 at 2:45


You're one of the best comedians I've read on this site but you better improve your gimmicks. You're getting some heavy competition.

By: bfra on 8/31/12 at 2:53

yogi - DODO bird, why didn't you meet Nemo? Is your yellow stripe showing?

By: dargent7 on 8/31/12 at 2:56

How can a person born in Mexico by a father also born in Mexico, be "natural born American citizens"? This definition you keep using....It skips a generation?
There's nothing in the US Constitution that says whatever Castro was or wasn't dong matters as what constitutes an person born on American soil.
That's the only true definition of who's eligible to be a US President.
Age 35 and "born on American soil". It's irrelevant who the father was, or wasn't.
Doesn't stipulate skin color (sorry), height weight, etc.
A single mother can bear a child and not know who the father is and that child can become President.

By: yogiman on 8/31/12 at 2:58

Tell me dumbo; you say meet me but you don't tell me who I'll be meeting. You don't tell me what you look like or what you would be wearing as identity. So what idiot would I be looking for?

Should I just walk up to every guy I see and ask them if they're "Captain Nemo"? I doubt you would identify yourself because you haven't made any such comment at the beginning. I've got more to do than just wonder what idiot I'm looking for.

By: bfra on 8/31/12 at 3:05

yogi - That isn't even a good cowardly excuse!

By: Loner on 8/31/12 at 3:08

The image of Yogi walking up to every guy he sees at a busy gas station and asking them if they're "Captain Nemo" is a rather humorous one....how many inquiries before somebody calls 911? Two? Three? Oh yeah....that's got comedic elements.

Of course, Nemo asking guys at the same place if they are Yogiman is equally funny....up to a point.

By: bfra on 8/31/12 at 3:13

Loner - No chance of that happening. Yogi is the type that only has a big mouth when using a computer, not face to face with someone.
