KMOV GM: “…Larry’s departure has nothing to do with the particular position he took, but it does have to do with our belief that his actions made it impossible for him to report for KMOV on certain political matters going forward without at least an appearance of bias”…
“Shortly after I did my April 2012 interview with President Obama, my wife, friends and some viewers suggested that I might need to watch out for the IRS…
In that April 2012 interview, I questioned President Obama on several topics: the Buffet Rule, his public remarks about the Supreme Court before the ruling on the Affordable Care Act. I also asked why he wasn’t doing more to help Sen. Claire McCaskill who at that time was expected to lose. The Obama interview caught fire and got wide-spread attention because I questioned his spending.
I said some viewers expressed concern, saying they think he’s “out of touch” because of his personal and family trips in the midst of our economic crisis. The President’s face clearly showed his anger; afterwards, his staff which had been so polite … suddenly went cold.
Journalistic integrity is of the utmost importance to me. My job is to ask the hard questions, because I believe viewers have a right to be well-informed. I cannot and will not promote anyone’s agenda – political or otherwise – at the expense of the reporting the truth.
What I don’t like to even consider … is that because of the Obama interview … the IRS put a target on me.
Can I prove it? At this time, no.
But it is a fact that since that April 2012 interview … the IRS has been pressuring me.“
In Dr. Orly Taitz’ case, Cook v. Simtech, Judge Richard Lazzara issued the following order in the case where Major Stefan Cook sought a temporary restraining order on his now-rescinded orders to go to Afghanistan contingent upon a confirmation of President Obama’s eligibility:
Unfortunately, similarly to what Judge James Robertson remarked about “twittered” vetting, I found the following from this Judge equally as appalling:
Plaintiff’s first attempt to involve a federal district court in this ongoing conspiracy theory that President Obama is unqualified to be President of the United States of America because he is not a native-born citizen was rebuffed just eleven days ago by United States District Judge Clay D. Land of the Middle District of Georgia based on lack of standing. …
First of all, we’re not talking about “native-born” cititzenship (I do believe this was the term that Major Cook used in his case); we’re talking about “natural born” citizenship, and even that with respect to Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5 of the Constitution. I think we can all admit that the Judiciary hasn’t exhaustively nailed that definition down yet.
Secondly, what in the world is the Judge doing calling what is otherwise a legitimate question of eligibility a “conspiracy theory?” Does the Judge not know that a true conspiracy theory is one that cannot be proven? On the face of it, it appears to me like the Judge prejudged (prejudiced) the case solely by his irrelevant allegation within the Order.
In the future, it would be nice if judges could simply stick strictly to the law, administer their orders without editorializing, and be done with it.
“There was no reasoning, no nothing,” said Maj. Cook, who noted previous legal decisions in his case included three or four pages of legal explanations.
“It’s ridiculous. They’re not even saying why it’s frivolous and without merit. You can say that to anything with no justification or reason. That’s crap. So much for jurisprudence in this country.” …
WND asked the Lazzara’s office about why there was no explanation in the judge’s “endorsed order,” and Sandra Hartman, Lazzara’s judicial assistant said, “That’s standard procedure if a judge wants to use it.”
She also indicated, “There’s nothing sealed in this case. It’s a public record.” …
“I don’t have another job yet,” said Cook. “I’m working on trying to find something. I have a very broad but deep background in a variety of subjects and I have built my experience that way just in the event of some catastrophic experience like this.”
He also said his legal fight was for “the greater good of the country.”
“I might get crushed in the wheels, in the gears of the Chicago machine, but if it’s for the greater good and if we can gain some kind of definitive ruling or clarity on eligibility, then that’s OK.” …
With so many rumors swirling around the blogosphere as to the context of Major Cook’s timing for filing his suit, he made the following statements to substantiate his position:
Cook also wants to clear up confusion among some who suggest he had some sort of ulterior motive to “set up” the government by volunteering for duty and then filing legal action.
An article in Stars and Stripes noted, “the Army reservist’s intention appeared not so much to fight for America as to fight against President Barack Obama, in furtherance of a bizarre conspiracy theory.”
The Florida resident tells WND he originally volunteered for duty in Afghanistan last October, before the presidential election ever took place. He was responding to a “help wanted” ad placed by the military.
But a potentially serious health threat known as a pancreatic neoplasm put his plans in jeopardy, and he asked officials in December to stop the deployment process due to his condition.
“I actually had [deployment] orders, then got a positive diagnosis,” Cook said, explaining he still wanted to go overseas after a recovery time of about six months.
Cook underwent surgery in January of this year, but doctors were not successful in removing the tumor on his pancreas.
By February, the soldier says he had seen Internet traffic that raised questions about the legitimacy of Obama to serve as president, and he contacted attorney Taitz to sign on as a secondary plaintiff in her California litigation. He stresses he did not seek to be a primary litigant.
Despite still having the tumor, Cook was making good medical progress, and continued his effort to get deployed in Afghanistan.
“I wouldn’t have even thought about putting in for orders unless I had thumbs up,” he noted.
In May, he got the medical green light, and by early June, was given the order to go to Afghanistan.
“I was doing my pre-combat checks, getting my personal affairs in order, doing my training, preparing my self to go to Afghanistan and then maybe about two weeks or 10 days out from report date, I started thinking about the whole legality thing and lawfulness of orders. And that is the time when I contacted Orly and said we need to file [in Georgia where I was based] because of this. This was early July.”
Cook maintains that even to this day, he’s ready and willing to be deployed “in a heartbeat.”
“This is what I do. This is what I trained for the past 21 [expletive] years,” he emphasized. “If I have the opportunity to deploy tomorrow to Afghanistan, I wouldn’t even think twice about it if the guy sitting in the White House issuing orders was certified as legitimate, [issuing] a lawful order. I ‘d be on the next C-17 across the pond.”
The opposition would do well to consider the truth behind a particular individual’s situation before going off on a quest to devalue, besmirch or otherwise assassinate the character of someone who questions this President’s eligibility.
In related news, concerned citizens have been relaying to me that Carl Swensson, Georgia citizen grand jury foreman and eligibility activist, has filed in the US District Court for DC the case, Swensson v. Soetoro:
Another lawsuit just filed in U.S. District Court in Washington, DC, Swensson vs. Soetoro, charges Obama with document fraud for posting a fake “birth certificate” on his website.
I’ll be on the look-out for the documentation on this case.
According to the following entry at Dr. Taitz’ site, it is conceivable that the birth certificate numbers on Mr. Obama’s alleged HI COLB may not be as solid as originally thought:
Attached are the Obama alleged “Certification of Live Birth” (COLB) as published by FactCheck.org showing the number of the COLB to be: 151 1961-010641 with Date of Birth Aug. 4, 1961. The very next day, Aug. 5, 1961, Susan Elizabeth Nordyke, one of a twin, was born at Kapiolani Maternity and Gynecological Hospital in Honolulu. Attached is her long form Hawaiian Birth Certificate, yet her certificate number is 151 61 10637- a number lower than Obama’s number yet for a child born a day later. Also notice that the truncated numbers “61″ were used in the long form Nordyke birth certificate for the year, not, “1961″ and also the leading “0″ in the last part of the section of numbers is omitted in the Nordyke birth certificate. Also, on the long form, a doctor signs and attests to the following: “”I hereby certify that this child was born alive on the date and hour stated above,” none of which appears on the short form COLB. Is it possible that another child was originally issued the number 151 1961-010641 which was then used by Obama? Janice Okubo, Dir. of Communications for the Hawaii Health Department has stated that she does not know what the Obama alleged COLB first appearing on the Daily Kos website appears to be.
The Kenyan Certificate look convincing! Keep up the great work!
attorney [emphases original]
Since the numbers appear to have been issued within 48 hours of each other, and while other factors could reasonably explain why certain digits were left out, the question becomes whether or not the numbers are arbitrarily generated or if there is a sequence protocol that is used.
And lastly, for your viewing pleasure, I’ve had forwarded to me the following YouTube videos from Sean Hannity’s Hannity’s America show that are said to have been edited from the broadcast. The account under which the videos are found dates back to late 2008; nevertheless, old news remains true to this day:
