Bachmann to Lead Birther-Filled Lineup at Taking America Back Conference

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) will headline September’s Taking America Back conference, an event that includes notable “birthers” Jerome Corsi, Aaron Klein, Joseph Farah and Alan Keyes. In fact, of the 15 speakers, at least nine have expressed doubt that President Obama was born in the United States.

The event, to be held in Miami from Sept. 16 to 18, offers attendees a choice between “the world of standards and morality, self-government and accountability to God or the world of tyranny and ever-changing moral codes enforced by government.” The 15 speakers include a who’s who of the “birther” movement, and many have ties to the conservative website WorldNetDaily, which is the event’s sponsor. That site’s managing editor and a conference speaker, David Kupelian, penned the piece, “Why I care about Obama eligibility issue.

Kupelian’s boss, WND founder Farah, is also outspoken in his belief that Obama might not have been born in the United States. Farah has been instrumental in plugging Corsi’s book, Obama Nation, which questions the legality of an Obama presidency.

Other Farah employees who are speaking: Floyd Brown, who says there’s no proof Obama was born in the the country, and Aaron Klein, who has written a book doubting Obama’s legitimacy. Also invited to address the confab is Gary DeMar, president of American Vision, a small religious right outfit who has doubts about Obama’s legitimacy.

“Whether Barack Obama was born in the United States is important, but even more important is for him to demonstrate his constitutional loyalty to a nation built on Christian principles,” DeMar wrote in 2009.

Keyes, the perennial Senate and presidential candidate, refuses to refer to Obama as “president” and has filed suit to gain access to Obama’s birth certificate.

Also speaking alongside Bachmann is former Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-Colo.), who shares similar views with birthers, having once said, “Send Obama back to Kenya.”

Only one speaker — Ann Coulter — has the distinction of taking a firm public stance against “birtherism.” She called the movement’s proponents “cranks,” yet she’ll be sharing the stage in Florida with a lineup that includes a majority of so-called “cranks.”

As will Bachmann, whom Farah described Sunday as “one of the leaders in calling for a repeal of Obamacare.”

“She’s a rock star, a principled, liberty-loving woman of conviction,” he wrote. “It will be a treat to see her and hear her and interact with her in Miami.”

Trying for that 24% who think Obama was not born in the US. Such huge numbers! [They must be doing it to extract donations from these beknighted folks; follow the money.] Of course, with Karl Rove's group taking in only $200.00 last quarter, they must be desperate for every cent/,

So Ann Coulter is the only speaker on record as supporting reality? What a conference!

Of course, Coulter is probably being paid quite well to associate with so many “cranks.”

bear,

I dunno……..”Toilers” seems a more apt description.

With so many nuts in one place, has anyone called Planter's?

I used “cranks” because that's what the Coultergeist calls them. But you're right — “toilers” brings a much more accurate picture to mind.

I think they ought to rename this the “Take America Back . . . To the 18th Century” Conference. Rep. Bachmann and Alan Keyes might want to think about what their lives would be like in that world.

Yes…..It's ironic, isn't it?

It's what I've been calling the “Intellectual Disconnect”. It's the only reasonable explanation.

There have been some really freaky and ridiculous things put forth in the last few months-ever since Rand Paul spouted out just how regressive his thinking is, and the minions have run with it.

I used to see Sharon Angle on the tube in Reno, when I lived there, and she didn't sound half the brain-dead rabble rouser she does now.

Seen the confirmation hearings on Kagan? There's so much hypocrisy in the questions and “conclusions” from the right, “Intellectual Disconnect” is the only answer I can think of. What do you think, counselor?

Is Coulter still very popular? Well Coulter may end up being the most rational person at this conference. We will have to wait until September to see if the conference will include any real topics, excluding what we know what Farah conspiracy theory will discuss. I wonder if the Tea Party crowd will be at this conference.

Confirmation hearings? Really? Who knew! It seems to me more like a stage play. Predicatable. Scripted.

I honestly can't bear to listen. It leads to me shouting at my computer/radio/tv. I think I can summarize the whole thing with the following, “Bearclaw's Rules of Confirmation Kabuki”:

(1) An “activist” judge is a judge who rules against you.

(2) A fair and impartial judge is a judge who rules for you.

(3) If the nominee is not specific enough in her answers about how she would rule on various issues, she is being evasive and dishonest.

(4) If the nominee is specific in her answers about how she would rule on various issues, she is biased and unprofessional.

(5) If the nominee is not like you (gender, race, religion, politics), it is essential that you ferret out how the nominee's obvious biases will affect his or her decisions.

(6) If the nominee is like you (gender, race, religion, politics), the nominee has no biases that are worth exploring.

(7) The nominee's legal education is irrelevant, because he or she went to Harvard or Yale (no others need apply).

!LOL! Kabuki! I love it!

I can always get a square answer like that from someone who sees the “theater” for what it is!

I find it hilarious because at the same time those GOBP clowns talk about Kagan being “activist”, the Roberts court is making “activist” rulings.

I think in a hundred years, this country's kids will look back and think: “There was something in the water in D.C. back then, wasn't there, teacher?”

Michelle Bachmann is a disgrace for the state of Minnasota. Whats is really sad is that the people of this state will probably send her back for another round of being ridiculous.
