Column: Aliens, Moon Landings, 9/11 and Obama

Who kidnapped all the moderate Republicans?

None of the Apollo missions really landed on the moon. The footage from NASA was all filmed on a sound stage.

Osama bin Laden did not order the September 11 attacks. It was an inside job, so to speak, and possibly Israelis were involved—Jewish workers were warned to stay out of the World Trade Center that day!

A UFO crashed near Roswell, New Mexico in 1947, and it’s one of hundreds (or more) of alien spacecraft that have been visiting Earth for centuries—extraterrestrials built the pyramids, after all, as well as those Nazca Lines in Peru!

And, of course President Obama is not a citizen of the United States and, thus, should be tossed from the Oval Office immediately!


Two prominent Morris County politicians——found some credence in that book.

And the Morris County Republican Committee invited author Jerome Corsi to present his view to several hundred people last week.

Many pronouned this so-called birther movement dead a year ago with the release of the president’s birth certificate. But Corsi and the Maricopa County, Ariz., sheriff say it’s a forgery. And who would be better qualified to investigate the citizenship of the president than the “Cold Case Posse” of a sheriff who is accused of federal civil rights violations, mostly of immigrants, and who forces inmates to wear pink underwear?

Who cares that the actual birth certificate is now online for everyone to see?

Just ignore those who have debunked the birther theories.

That’s what Bucco and Morris County Sheriff Ed Rochford have done.

“The easiest way to put this to rest is to have the records unsealed,” said Rochford, who calls Corsi a friend. “Mr. Corsi made a very convincing argument that President Obama may not be a natural born citizen of the United States.”

He cited several points made by Corsi:

  • A Hawaii Health Department spokesperson had said there was no long form birth certificate, and then Obama’s appeared.
  • Obama had supposedly been born at Queens Medical Center, but later that was changed to Kapiolani Hospital.
  • A social security number allegedly was issued in Connecticut after Obama already had started working.
  • Obama lived in Indonesia and attended a school that only an Indonesian citizen could attend and, by the way, why are his school and travel records sealed?

All these points raised “a red flag,” Rochford said. According to the Huffington Post, Bucco said a resolution to the question of Obama’s birth won’t come until “some higher authority is involved.”

The Maricopa sheriff’s citizen party and a Denville author who has made a living writing uber-conservative books surely are authority enough.

Perhaps the truth will finally come out on Tuesday. That’s when, according to the Conservative News and Views website, a New Jersey administrative law judge will conduct a hearing on the challenge by two Jerseyans to Obama’s candidacy. The president is not eligible for the office of president because, according to a statement on that website, “Obama has never shown that he was born in the United States, nor even who he really is.”

I am grateful that there is no citizenship test for journalists as I would, clearly, fail. Allegedly, I was born in Jersey City. But a clerk in the Hudson County vital statistics office admitted to creating false birth certificates for sale to illegal immigrants back in 2005—when Gov. Chris Christie was U.S. Attorney for New Jersey, by the way—so New Jersey won’t accept my HC-issued birth certificate as legal proof of anything. Maybe my birth certificate isn’t legit.

Maybe the Hudson County worker was in cahoots with the clerk in Hawaii?!

Or, more likely, the Obama birth certificate dates back to a plan hatched back in 1961, which foresaw the need to pass off a Kenyan as an American so he could almost 50 years later become president and ruin this great land.

The real mystery I, and many moderate Morris Republicans, would like to see explained is how the radical right hijacked the GOP—the party of Dean Gallo, Leanna Brown, Bob Martin, Carol Murphy, Pat Hylad and, yes, Chris Christie—in one of the wealthiest and most well-educated counties in the nation.

On second thought, that’s not important. After all, the world’s going to end on Dec. 21.

gorefan, looking at your little tidbit about the healthcare law. What happens when someone is layed-off from their job and lost any healthcare they had, and all healthcare has run out, then what happens, they pay a fine or go to jail. Do you think that is fair? There are many people I know that their unemployment benefits have run out, and can't collect anymore and have no insurance, thats fair, get real dude. The government doesn't take these people in to concideration when they figure up jobs created numbers, they feel they aren't collecting from unemployment then they must have gone back to work, so they don't count. Why don't you fugure these people in your numbers and tell your buddy Odumbo{Osama} to count those people too, then you'll get the real unemployment numbers and how many jobs were created for real. It'll be about 18% unemployment not 8.3%. Besides all the jobs he has created are working for his stupid wife. She has more people running her so called busy life than a small company has empoyees. The healthcare bill is a big joke and designed to protect the insurance companies and make them money, like AARP was paid $1 million dollars for their endorsement of that thing, and now they are losing a lot of members because of it. How about the little clause they had in there , that many millions went to support a democraps campaign out in Oklahoma I think. What did that have to do with healthcare?

Your comments about the "lying moronic Muslim pig" remind me of when Senator McCain was confronted with a hateful, ignorant voter while on the campaign trail. He said, "No ma'am. He is a decent family man, citizen that I just happen to have disagreements with on fundamental issues and that’s what this campaign is all about. He's not."

gorefan, one more time (Subtitle F: Universal Coverage - Requires each citizen or lawful permanent resident to be covered under a qualified health plan or equivalent health care program by January 1, 2005. Provides an exception for any individual who is opposed for religious reasons to health plan coverage, including those who rely on healing using spiritual means through prayer alone. ") Requires you to be covered. does not state you will be punished if you CHOOSE not to have it. not sure why you can't see the difference.

Both Obamacare and the 2003 republican proposal REQUIRED that everyone purchase coverage, and that is the provision over which republicans are now feigning outrage. It seems to me there was one other law with a similar requirement......oh, yes....Romneycare!
