The Latest Unwitting Chump in the Obama Occidental Hoax: DelMarVa Observer

It looks journalistic with all that fancy fonting, but the DelMarVa Observer apparently doesn’t take the trouble to check newsbanks or even Google before submitting “news stories” from the “AP” that are actually hoax e-mails.

DelMarVa Observer Acts as a Chump by Spreading an Obama Hoax as News

Congratulations, DelMarVa Observer, you’re the latest venue to fall into the role of hoaxer’s chump.

Chump of the Day: Tony Caputo

It’s been nearly two years since a hoax purporting to be an Associated Press article “revealed” that Barack Obama registered at Occidental College as Indonesian citizen “Barry Soetoro.” It’s been nearly as long since the hoax was exposed as an utter fake.

But today right-wing conspiracy theorist Tony Caputo sent along the text of the hoax as an e-mail to me, with the preface “APPEARS TO BE THE PROOF, AT LAST. FROM SNOPES.COM. SNOPES SAY’S IT’S TRUE.”

Of course, Snopes documents that it’s false.

Tony Caputo, whether you know it or not, you are the Chump of the Day!

Obama Hoax Chump of the Day: Leonard Coldwell, Dr. Mistletoe

What kind of person could be so detached from reality that he could manage to share the “breaking news” of Barack Obama’s supposed Indonesian citizenship with his anti-Obama audience, well over a year after its thorough debunking? Who could be posting the following with sincerity in May of 2010? You know the one:

…released by Occidental College in compliance with a court order in a suit brought by the group in the Superior Court of California . The transcript shows that Obama (Soetoro) applied for financial aid and was awarded a fellowship for foreign students from the Fulbright Foundation Scholarship program. To qualify, for the scholarship, a student must claim foreign citizenship…

Why, the sort of person who claims megadoses of Vitamin D or mistletoe will eradicate cancer. The sort of person who counts Lyndon “Queen’s a Drug Smuggler” LaRouche as an authoritative source. The sort of person who really believes that in a trial starting on May 14, “THE LONG LEGGED MAC DADDY” will be tossed out of the White House.

Meet Dr. Leonard Coldwell, our Chump of the Day.

Barack Obama Occidental College Hoax Honored By Robocallers

You know, we here at the nonexistent Americans for Freedom of Information organization are not above a little hubris up here in the Astral plane of unreality. Our non-existent hearts swell with entirely imaginary pride to find that the Occidental College AP letter hoax we didn’t disseminate has been honored for its efforts…

… by an organization of Robo-callers.

Huzzah!

Christian American Politics is the Obama Hoax Chump of the Day

In a move certain to fuel the debate over Obama’s qualifications for the presidency, the group “Americans for Freedom of Information” has released copies of President Obama’s college transcripts from Occidental College ..

The transcript indicates that Obama, under the name Barry Soetoro, received financial aid as a foreign student from Indonesia while an undergraduate at the school….

You know the rest, all snugly copied and pasted onto the blog called Christian American Politics late last month, continuing the conservative American habit of spreading absolutely undocumented lies about President Barack Obama.

On the same page, Christian American Politics (can I call you CAPpy for short?) cuts and pastes in another thought:

“Never trouble another for what you can do for yourself.” — Thomas Jefferson

What a nice idea Thomas Jefferson had, CAPpy. How about applying it to the task of Checking Your Facts? You silly Christian American Political goose, the whole Obama-Soetoro-Occidental “AP article” has been a known, demonstrated hoax for nearly a year now. But you won’t let little things like reality stop you from spreading other people’s lies, will you?

Of course not… and that’s what makes you our very special chump of the day!

Another Tea Party Chump Spreading the Obama Occidental Lie

You know, when we started this website, Americans for Freedom of Information, we thought it would be a short-time effort to point out the absurdity in the fake Associated Press “news story” that some desperate right-winger pulled together in an effort to make you think that Barack Obama wasn’t born in this country. Surely, we thought, if we just make it apparent to people that the group “Americans for Freedom of Information” did not actually exist, then everybody will figure out that they’ve been hoaxed and move on to some new crackpot conspiracy, maybe about Corn Flakes.

But no. Seven months later, the completely fictitious “shocking revelation” that Barack Obama registered at Occidental College under the name “Barry Soetoro” is still being posted as fresh news on right-wing websites.

Take the movement website called Tea Party Patriots. In a “news flash” from December 8, 2009, the Tea Party Patriots “report”:

VERY QUIETLY OBAMA’S CITIZENSHIP CASE REACHES THE SUPREME COURT

AP- WASHINGTON D.C. – In a move certain to fuel the debate over Obama’s qualifications for the presidency, the group “Americans for Freedom of Information” has Released copies of President Obama’s college transcripts from Occidental College . Released today, the transcript school indicates that Obama, under the name Barry Soetoro, received financial aid as a foreign student from Indonesia as an undergraduate at the The transcript was released by Occidental College in compliance with a court order in a suit brought by the group in the Superior Court of California.

The transcript shows that Obama (Soetoro) applied for financial aid and was awarded a fellowship for foreign students from the Fulbright Foundation Scholarship program. To qualify, for the scholarship, a student must claim foreign citizenship. This document would seem to provide the smoking gun that many of Obama’s detractors have been seeking….

… and so on and so forth. The article is a fake, easily proved so, and yet the Tea Party Patriots are eager to believe the baloney nonetheless. Why? Why do they need to believe that Barack Obama is not a real American? What itch does that fiction scratch?

Chump of the Day on Obama Occidental Records: Watching and Waiting

The trumpet is not the only thing that blows at thetrumpetblows.blogspot.com, a website obsessed with the search for “signs that would warn believers of the End of Days.” The website, titled Watching and Waiting, asks: “Could the events that the world is witnessing today be the very signs that Christ, the OT prophets and the apostles mentioned?”

To what events is the website’s author, Dennis, referring? Why, the election of Barack Obama, of course! And what conspiratorial crypto-religious millenial crackpot website would be complete without the inclusion of that old-hat revelation: the release of Barack “Barry Soetoro” Obama’s Occidental College records, proving it aaaaaaallllll? You guessed it. Dennis writes today, nearly a year since the original hoaxsters wrote the fake:

VERY QUIETLY OBAMA’S CITIZENSHIP CASE REACHES THE SUPREME COURTAP-

WASHINGTON D.C.

You can read the article and follow the various links here: http://teapartypatriots.org/BlogPostView.aspx?id=3dcf326b-1ec1-4f65-b9c8-1bc87dbecb1f

I have to admit that when you read some of the quotes (if in fact they are true quotes) of what Obama said when he was running for Senator….the issue becomes very fishy indeed.

Remember one thing…..if Obama WAS found to be ineligible for the Presidency and had to step down…..it could be an event that causes massive riots and chaos….and could further damage our already tenuous reputation within the global community.

This “shocking expose” can lead to only ONE conclusion (if you are insane, that is): if Jesus Christ and Barack Obama ever meet, they would release a vast explosion of energy that would destroy the Planet!

If you’re not insane, all you can do is walk away from Watching and Waiting, muttering, “yet another chump who can’t google a hoax, played for a fool by the right-wing.”

I do not exist t-shirt



Who removed the text in the above section? What is their agenda? And why won't they let me complete my sent...

A Clue for the Literal-Minded

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.

A Clue for Those Especially Allergic to Satire

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.
