THAT Americans for Freedom of Information Isn’t The Real Deal Either

September 21, 2009 at 1:08 pm 17 comments

You’ve figured out by now, if you have an IQ above 50, that this website is for a group, Americans for Freedom of Information, that DOES NOT exist. The e-mails you have been getting from your conservative Aunt Gertie proclaiming that Barack Obama’s real last name is Soetoro are FAKES.

Unfortunately, a number of Americans’ hatred toward Barack Obama seems to have cut off the blood supply to their brains, effectively lowering their IQ to just about 50. One of these folks left a comment here just the other day:

I received this email. I went to snopes to see what they knew. I read the claim that the website did not exist, until it was creadted to discredit the email. I decided to check for myself, and entered http://www.americansforfreedomofinformation.com. I wanted to read the debunking phrase for myself. Lo and behold, there was a website http://www.americansforfreedomofinformation.com/.

However, it wasn’t a site debunking the email, but one confirming it. If there had been a website (which normall must be registered for at least a year), that was a spoof, then how did the website I landed at SUPPORT the claim?

IF there is any conspiracy by people in power to cover-up Obama’s actual birthplace, I wouldn’t put it past them to be able to get Snopes to print the information they have on their site. Too bad. I’ve always looked to Snopes for the truth.

“What good fortune for governments that the people do not think.” – Adolf Hitler

What good fortune for the Republican Party that the person leaving that comment does not read! Debra Smith of Hilton, New York is the author of that website, and she explicitly states:

Another site of mine, is: http://www.AmericansForFreedomOfInformation.com. -Please note that I had nothing to do with the AP email that went out, claiming to be from an organization by this name. The email actually went out before the site began on, May eleventh, two thousand-nine.

Yes, that e-mail, the hoax e-mail, went out months before the creation of Debra Smith’s website. Debra Smith’s website, in turn, was created a week after this one.

Here’s my suggestion for those people who need a crutch to support their ideas about Barack Obama being the secret Indonesian love child of Malcolm X:

Use blogspot.com for your hoax. Nobody’s taken that one yet.

    I’m particularly fond of the bizarro claim that websites must “normall must be registered for at least a year” before they come online. Maybe that’s true in Indonesia. COINCIDENCE?

    I agree that it can be very satisfying to watch those who choose not to think make fools of themselves and get their just deserts. What I find less amusing is providing pitfalls for the people who do choose to think to make fools of themselves. By that, I mean that I am very annoyed with the propagation of this misinformation. It has penetrated so deeply into so many places that it is not immediately clear to the average observer, trying to gather facts about what could be a serious situation, that it is a hoax. I understand that a good researcher has to follow up on sources and would not refer to your article except as an honest mistake, but at the very least it is not right to cause honest persons to waste their time on wild goose-chases. Please think of the people who really want to know the truth next time you’re inclined to make fun of those who make ip their own “truths.”

      1. I didn’t write the hoax. I’m just writing on its nonexistence.

      2. If “Really Now, We Do Not Exist” and

      Read these tiny words very closely: the group Americans for Freedom of Information does not exist, just like the supposed “AP article” you keep cutting and pasting into e-mails to your irritated family does not exist, just like the “Daily Mail article” referenced in the fake “AP article” does not exist. They’re all fabrications. Fakes. Hoaxes. Ask yourself why you’re so eager to believe these obvious fakes. No, really. Really, really ask yourself.

      is not enough to tip you off that this is all a HOAX perpetrated by some guy sitting in a basement, the picture of the Sasquatch and a UFO in the banner should do it.

    Agree with Emmanuel.

    People who read the kind of “facts” in forwarded e-mails believe what they read, and they ARE too stupid to ceck up on them–how do you think I got this in the first place? From a college graduate who forwarded to nother gollege graduate who was a Captain in the US Army who was in the military’s answer to the NSA, who is a really intelligent person

    I have receivede countless e-mails on the President, from his legitimacy to the Health Care Bill and global warming. I have “educated” my contacts everytime I read one. I even got caught once on the Robin Williams dissertion on kicking people out of the US–I forwarded it because it was funny–never stopped to think that it wasn’t true, and got quite a few responses from people who “snoped” it.

    The moral—keep on snoping or factchecking or truthorfictioning, and then maybe people will stop assuming and start checking!

    How about creating positive rumors? Think about al the good you can do for those with lower IQs!

      Well, we didn’t create this rumor. We’re using this website to debunk the rumor.

    And the Amero in the banner!

    This is all part of the North American Federation conspiracy – they’re building a highway to cut America in half, connecting Mexico with Canada. Americans will have to travel hundreds of miles to find crossing points, and they’ll need to show a passport to cross over.

    They’ve already started minting the money – there’s a picture on the banner, GO LOOK!! It’s called the Amero, and they’re going to swap them out for dollars very soon. There’s all the evidence right in from of you, but all anyone cares about is US Idol . . . what a shame.

      Oh, my gosh! You’re right! There’s a picture of an Amero in the banner… so it must be real!
      And by analogy, since there is a picture of a Sasquatch in the banner…

    I hope they find him illegal and try him and all of his cohorts guilty of treason. This man is Un-American/Anti-American regardless of where he was born. He is hell bent on no less than the total destruction of America. As for all of you Left Wing Progressives (Commies), most of the Tea Party Attendees are True Americans. Crawl back into your welfare holes and create the only product you know how, while we tax paying Americans are still supporting you! If Obama isn’t stopped soon, there will be no one to support you!

    Sure hope that Mr. Cannady is not on Social Security or Medicare or gets tax assistance through State lotteries, or rides in his AMERICAN manufactured automobile on the Interstate highways that were built by the crazy left wing progressives. Wow, he even uses the Internet which was developed by Federal funds. Guess he doesn’t believe that Americans landed on the moon either.

    Take a right, Mr. Cannady, and then another right and then another right and then anoth……………………

    Jerome Corsi has written the latest book about Obama called, ” Where’s the Birth Certificate”? Comes out may 17th, I have one on order. Corsi by contract could not give the answer in an interview till May 17, 2011? But I think Obama’s eligibility was given away in interview by George Noory of Coast to Coast AM? As I understand by law, you do not get to choose your country, even if Obama was born here when your step father adopted you as Barry Soetoro, as your fathers name. The parents citizenship is the answer to Obama’s American citizenship. Barrys father is a citizen of Indonesia, Barry lived in Indonesia as adopted son of step father, thus Barry (OBAMA) is NOT, NOT, NOT eligible to be legal American, and is not eligible to be President EVER, EVER in America? If I showed up with a phone bill from Hawaii, asked for the short birth certificate, the Island of Hawaii would embrace me and write me the certificate. This was the effort of Obama’s family or someone in the administration of Obama to prove birth. But to the “VIEW” Joy Bayhart, Obama appears to be a citizen of Indonesia because of his adoption as barry Seotoro tby his step father, a citizen of Indonesia.

    Obama hired Seattle, Washington law firm named Perkins & Coy to defend his birthing claims in all courts… In the first round Barry Soetoro paid the law firm 1 million dollars, then moved a Perkins lawyer into the Whitehouse full time to continue to defend Barry. The cost to date is near 2 million Joy Bayhart of the “View”! Barry is a illegal President because he is still a citizen of Indonesia. Both of his parents had to be Naturally Born Citizens/ Jeromme Corsi says……the investigator reporter, that wrote the book that brought John Kerry out as a liar when he talked about his days as a PT boat commander and where he was iin Vietnam. This book helped to inform the American peeople and did bring down Kerry’s campaign for President!

      First of all, it’s Perkins Coie. Second, you don’t cite a source. Third, Obama hired Perkins Coie to take care of all his campaign legal expenses. There is no source with any itemized cost Perkins Coie charged Obama to represent him in “birther” lawsuits.

      Silly goose.

    Amfoi Joe………….. I hadn’t yet looked theem up yet on how to spell. But once I did I wrote them a letter to ask them to come clean.
    Yes a good digger names the source and then writes a letter, then sends it out to everyone because they haven’t answered me yet…… which means they are guilty at being corrupt like the whole Oscumba Administration. You must be a little mouse that writes?

No, we didn't create the hoax, either. Remember, we at Americans for Freedom of Information don't exist!

No One knows who did create the hoax. Unfortunately, we don't know No One or where he lives, so we can't ask No One about it. We do know her sister, Imnot Telling, but ever since the thing in the place with that other thing, we're not on speaking terms.
