The Phoenix New Times has been keeping an eye on New Hampshire state Rep. Stella Tremblay since she suggested Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s “Cold Case Posse” would be an appropriate “unbiased” group to investigate the government’s involvement in the Boston Marathon bombing. The paper notes Arpaio’s investigators “pretty clearly fabricated ‘evidence’ ” in their effort to prove President Obama is using a fake birth certificate:
That got us thinking — what’s a dumber thought: That secret government agents decided to murder three people by planting a couple bombs at the Boston Marathon, then pinning it on a couple Chechens, or that a Kenyan citizen named Barack Obama decided he wanted to be President of the United States, so he enlisted some people to make a fake birth certificate for him to do so?
Tremblay, of course, has championed both. The one about the “original” 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution being swept under the rug didn’t make the list.
Well, CBS News has confirmed that Barak Obama’s birth certificate is, in fact, a fraud. Listen for yourself and come to your own concusion. As for me, you know where I stand on this issue. Impeach him NOW!

Yesterday, state House Rep. Stella Tremblay emailed Secretary of State Bill Gardner, and copied her fellow lawmakers, with an urgent message. The Auburn Republican had just discovered a YouTube video in which President Obama admitted that he is not an American. No word yet on the Secretary of State’s response.

I do know know if this video has been edited. If this is not the case, there is a BIG PROBLEM.
Following the near-riot that followed the failed birther challenge last year, Birther Queen Orly Taitz wrote a letter to House Speaker Bill O’Brien demanding Secretary of State Bill Gardner be removed from office “due to egregious elections fraud, aiding and abetting fraud, forgery and possibly treason.”
Are you nuts? asked former House Majority Leader D.J. Bettencourt.
“Bill Gardner is a New Hampshire treasure who has worked tirelessly for Granite Staters and the [preservation] of our special political culture. The fact that he has drawn this ire establishes his good judgment. … Please, Dr. Taitz, go away and leave New Hampshire alone.”
Today, GOP Free Stater Rep. Seth Cohn picked up the baton from Taitz and called for the removal of Gardner and Deputy Secretary of State David Scanlan. “Scanlan and Gardner are the problem,” wrote Cohn in an online comment. “Time to replace them.”
Cohn was responding to a Kevin Landrigan account of legislation that moves up the deadline for third parties to identify their candidates. The legislation, passed by the House and Senate on voice votes, was requested by the Secretary of State’s office due to federal election laws that require the state to send ballots to overseas residents and military voters earlier than before.
The reason Obama seems to have “no birth certificate, no college records, no roommates, no student loans, no girlfriends/boyfriends, and no past”, and was able to gain the presidency with virtually no prior major accomplishment or business experience is that he was likely a CIA asset as proven by the 26 or so SS numbers he used over the years.
New Hampshire House Speaker Bill O’Brien defended House members who disrupted a state Ballot Law Commission hearing last year saying they were “convicted in the court of public opinion” on false charges. He accused Attorney General Michael Delaney of publicizing details of an “alleged crime” in an effort to “denigrate three state representatives and, by extension, the New Hampshire House of Representatives.”
An investigation by the head of State House security concluded the lawmakers did not violate any laws when they threatened BLC chairman Brad Cook and confronted Assistant Attorney General Matthew Mavrogeorge. Mavrogeorge had feared for his safety and called capitol security from a locked office following the confrontation.
The three lawmakers, Reps. Harry Accornero, Susan DeLemus and Al Baldasaro, attended the Ballot Law Commission hearing in support of a complaint filed by Birther Queen Orly Taitz who attempted to keep President Obama off the ballot for the New Hampshire presidential primary. The fracas erupted after the commission ruled against the Birther complaint.
Rep. Susan DeLemus, a freshman Republican from Rochester, acknowledged raising her voice when speaking with Mavrogeorge and issued an apology afterward. DeLemus, who is clerk of the House Election Law committee, told authorities she thought Mavrogeorge was longtime Secretary of State Bill Gardner.
The Keene Sentinel looks back at the near-riot by New Hampshire legislators that followed the failed ”birther” challenge heard by the Ballot Law Commission. The blame, say the editors, begins with the “goonish behavior” by House leadership that now pervades the legislature.
The principal revelation from this day was not about birthers. Instead, it was about apparently accepted behavior in Concord — a goonish behavior about which some representatives have complained but which until now had never been caught on video for all to see on the Internet. …
Before this episode, it was difficult to imagine anyone giving the birther movement an unsavory name. And, it was difficult to imagine anyone in a position of responsibility giving the state of New Hampshire a thuggish name. But the nine Republican representatives at the hearing, led by Al Baldasaro of Londonderry and Harry Accornero of Laconia, did both — convincingly, schooled as they apparently are in the ways of the new Legislature.
These are all supporters of the current house leadership who is now trying to distance themselves from their supporters. What it shows is what happens when you disagree with these people and it is good for the general public to see what the rest of us have to put up with. You now know why the legislature is as screwed up as it is. Somebody needs to save us from ourselves.
— GOP State House Rep. Lee Quandt on the nine state lawmakers who supported the “birther” complaint to keep President Obama off the ballot in the 2012 New Hampshire presidential primary.
Yesterday, House Speaker Bill O’Brien sent an email to state House Reps. Harry Accornero, Susan DeLemus and Al Baldasaro informing them that the Director of State Police, Colonel Robert Quinn, will be conducting a review of their behavior during Friday’s Ballot Law Commission hearing.
“[Attorney General Delaney] is concerned over how members of the House conducted themselves during and following the hearing, as well as for the safety of a member of his office who attended the meeting in an official capacity.”
Friday, the Ballot Law Commission conducted a hearing to investigate a complaint filed by Birther Queen Orly Taitz that attempted to keep President Obama off the ballot for the 2012 New Hampshire presidential primary. Nine GOP lawmakers joined the complaint, including Reps. Accornero, DeLemus and Baldasaro.
After the hearing ended with the Ballot Law Commission rejecting the complaint, the three House members were videotaped berating and threatening members of the commission and the Attorney General’s staff. [Video Credit: Granite State Progress]

Is Gov. Rick Perry trying to win Rep. Frank Guinta’s endorsement by raising the birther issue?
New comments by Rick Perry in Parade magazine have revived the issue of whether the Texas governor believes that President Obama was born in the United States.
In the interview, Mr. Perry was asked if Mr. Obama was born in the United States, and he replied, “I have no reason to think otherwise.” When pressed, he said, “Well, I don’t have a definitive answer.”
