Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freepi – They’re spying on us, and other whines

Good morning, campers! Let’s get suited up quick, because the iso chamber is busting at the seams with the things that Freepi love to say when they think nobody is watching.  This is also the subject of our first toxic sample – you see, Jerome Corsi has been a member of the Freeperati for some time, and his latest rush to the remainder bin has generated a bit of pushback from the Obama team. Since some of this pushback is the kinds of things he has posted on FR, they’re feeling the heat from God’s magnifying glass.

You’d think they would be grateful for the free publicity, but…

Wild theories of ‘Obama Nation’ author [Corsi, FR]
Politico ^| 8/13/2008 | By KENNETH P. VOGEL
Posted onThursday, August 14, 2008 2:50:31 PM byJim Robinson
The folks behind “The Obama Nation,” the wildly successful but factually disputed new book trashing presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama, are casting it as a scholarly, thoroughly researched work.
But its author has left a trail of wild theories, vitriol and dogma that have called into question his credibility.
Jerome Corsi, who rose to prominence as the co-author of a book attacking 2004 Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry, penned another tome asserting oil is a nearly infinite resource that continues to generate naturally, and posted a series of online comments through 2004, including suggestions that Hillary Rodham Clinton is a lesbian and Muslims worship Satan.
In an interview with Politico, Corsi pointed out that he’s apologized for Internet postings ripping Muslims and Catholics, and said they don’t undermine the integrity of his new book.
“I wrote those to be provocative and I said I would not use that kind of politically incorrect language again, and I don’t believe I have,” he said.
~~snip~~
But his outrageous assertions and fringe theories — which include allegations that President Bush worked to eliminate the borders with Mexico and Canada and the assertion that Kerry is a Communist — have hurt his credibility on the right, as well.
Corsi’s co-author on the Kerry attack book, Swift Boat Veterans for Truth spokesman John O’Neill, downplayed Corsi’s role after the left-leaning press watchdog group Media Matters exposed Corsi’s venomous postings in the conservative blogosphere.
On the blog FreeRepublic.com, Corsi wrote that pedophilia “is OK with the Pope as long as it isn’t reported by the liberal press,” that “RAGHEADS are Boy-Bumpers as clearly as they are Women-Haters” and that Kerry is “Anti-Christian, Anti-American.”

No doubt the eeevil George Soros hired a crack squad of PIs to sift through his IPs after offering one of the mods a villa in France for his co-operation?

How do they know his Free Republic name? He signed his name to some of his posts.

Hey! You got your racial stereotyping in my latent homosexuality!
These guys have a syndrome I like to call “safe harbour”. It’s what makes this whole kicking-over-of-rocks thing so satisfying for yours truly. They think there’s nobody here but us chickens, and let their hair down, and their repulsive thoughts flow freely. But now, it’s beginning to penetrate the dimmest among them that the clubhouse isn’t private after all. But what to do??

We need to have an encrypted forum and allow encrypted posts.
You can only see the post of you have more than 100 posts to FR and have been in the forum for >2 years.

Yeah – that will fix the issue of people staring through the bars of the monkey cage, all righty! But how to do it? Has to be effective in screening out prying eyes, but simple to operate. Hmmm…

Nah – too complicated.
Maybe…

Dangerous Times In Georgia Demand Serious Leadership (Fred Thompson)
Town Hall ^| 14 August 2008 | Fred Thompson
Posted onThursday, August 14, 2008 11:32:34 AM bySE Mom
My mind goes back to August 2002 in Tbilisi, as I visited Georgia with John McCain. I remember it feeling rather dark and secretive, with the former-Soviet Union’s heavy hand still making its presence felt. President Eduard Shevardnadze, formerly Soviet minister of foreign affairs, presented a friendlier face to the United States, but was beset by economic problems and corruption charges. At the time I did not fully appreciate the power of the democratic impulses that were just beginning to bubble up and would lead to the democratic Georgian government we now see threatened.

Your mind goes back? The problem, Fred, was that back was the only direction it wanted to go. Let’s see if this stirs up some embers at the bottom of the Fredhead clinker-bin:

U.S. puts brakes on Israeli plan for attack on Iran nuclear facilities
Haaretz ^
Posted onWednesday, August 13, 2008 9:16:48 AM byWilliamReading
The American administration has rejected an Israeli request for military equipment and support that would improve Israel’s ability to attack Iran’s nuclear facilities.
The Americans viewed the request, which was transmitted (and rejected) at the highest level, as a sign that Israel is in the advanced stages of preparations to attack Iran. They therefore warned Israel against attacking, saying such a strike would undermine American interests. They also demanded that Israel give them prior notice if it nevertheless decided to strike Iran.
Recently, however, Israel has concluded that Bush is unlikely to attack, and will focus instead on ratcheting up diplomatic pressure on Tehran. It prefers to wait until this process has been exhausted, though without conceding the military option. Israel’s assumption is that Iran will continue to use delaying tactics, and may even agree to briefly suspend its uranium enrichment program in an effort to see out the rest of Bush’s term in peace.

I AM SURE OIL PRICES WILL FALL AND THE DOW JUMP WHEN IRAN HAS/USES NUKES. WHO WILL BE BLAMED FOR THAT? THE US ANYWAY SO I SAY LET THEM BLAME US FOR THE NON NUCLEAR OPTION.

Well, that certainly seems to have brought out the all-caps brigade – ready to die (or at least watch others die on teevee) to keep Israel American!

To: kabar
If Israel bombs Iran, the US will be blamed for it. How GOOD is this for the US troops in Iraq and our mission there? What impact will this have on US interests in the region? On world oil supplies and the price of oil? On our economy?I’d say it would have less of an effect than if Iran destroyed the ENTIRE state of Israel with a nuclear bomb.

These microchephalics seem to think a nuclear weapon’s effects stop at territorial borders. Let’s see – which countries are in the blast effect and fallout ranges of a nuclear attack on Israel? Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Iraq (maybe they reallydohate the troops?), and at the far right of the fallout footprint – Iran.

Well, Athena was nice enough to let me do some Bonus Bailey Boy Bulldog Blogging , so I’d like to introduce you to Bailey.
He’s a rescue Bulldog we (Barbara and I) brought home from Oklahoma. He wasn’t sure what to make of the cats at first, but they seem to have signed a mutual non-agression pact, and he gets along fine with our poo-hound (half poodle and half deerhound) Brillo just fine.

Thanks again, everybody – don’t forget to scrub thoroughly before leaving the vault, and be sure and scan for residual bits of xenophobia before opening the airlock.

    BTW, guys – I clicked on allcaps boy “stygian”s FR link above and got this:
    “I am a government spook, never email me directly, my advice to you is to go off grid now and remain there. I’m not joking.”
    BWAHAHAHA! Snurk…
    And I’m still trying to figure out the “I AM SURE OIL PRICES WILL FALL AND THE DOW JUMP WHEN IRAN HAS/USES NUKES. WHO WILL BE BLAMED FOR THAT?” post.
    ????
    Did he get “oil prices will go to a kilobuck a barrel (and good luck getting some even at that price) and the Dow will go to 205” backwards, or is he really that stupid?
