Chicago Tribune's Eric Zorn Labels High-Ranking Members of the United States Military that Uphold Their Oaths as Whackjobs, Got Plastered with Radical Friends and Acquaintances!?
[updates below] This past week the Chicago Tribune decided to publish a piece on the Commander Kerchner et al v. Obama/Congress/Pelosi et al lawsuit which is now awaiting a response from the Supreme Court of the United States. Instead of doing a full-blown investigative piece on the historic Petition for Writ of Certiorari they aimed their guns and fired off a hit-piece libeling those who seek transparency and justice in regards to Obama's Constitutional Eligibility to be President and Commander-in-Chief.
The hit-piece is titled; - Because a Constitutional crisis is just what this nation needs right now - by Eric Zorn
Snippet; And since one must be a "natural-born citizen" to be president and Barack Obama's father was not, as everyone acknowledges, a U.S. citizen, the whackjobs who have been unsuccessful in their "he was born in Kenya!" effort, are now hoping that the U.S. Supreme Court will help in their cause to declare him ineligible to hold office. -snip- Source.
If Mr. Zorn spent less time going out and getting plastered he might be able to rehabilitate some of those braincells he's clearly lacking to do some critical thinking and investigative writing. How does it feel, Zorn?
Members of the Armed Forces that have or are judicially challenging Obama's Eligibility to be Commander-in-Chief; Cmdr. Charles Kerchner, Capt. Pamela Barnett, Cmdr. Walter Fitzpatrick, Lt. Col. Terry Lakin, Col. Hollister, Cmdr. Douglas Stoeppelwerth, Maj. Stefan Cook, Lt. Cmdr. John Steidel, Colonel Harry Riley, Lt. Col. Richard Bauerbach, Lt. Col. Mark Wriggle, LCDR Jeff Winthrope, Capt. Robin Biron, Col. John Blair, Capt. Harry Butler, MSGT Steven Neuenschwander, Major David Mosby, Capt. David Smithey, MSGT Jeffrey Schwilk, Sgt. Jeffrey Rosner, SFC E7 Robert Perry, Chief Warrant Of.Thomas Davidson, Sgt. Jason Freese and Commander David LaRoque...
As Citizen Wells points out; He(Zorn) displays a total lack of understanding about Obama’s eligibility issues and the Kerchner case.
First of all, we don’t know where in the hell Obama was born, since he has avoided presenting a legitimate birth certificate. Secondly, Zorn has got some nerve calling a retired naval commander, LTC Terry Lakin, multiple generals and millions of concerned Americans “whackjobs.”
Eric Zorn, we have a constitutional crisis now, due to people like you in the media not doing your journalistic job.
Eric Zorn, call me. Get your facts straight before making an ass out of yourself.
“Why has Obama, for over 2 years, employed numerous private and government attorneys to avoid presenting a legitimate birth certificate and college records?”…Citizen Wells and millions of concerned Americans -snip- Source.
Mr. Zorn, you owe the members of the Military listed above and millions of Americans an apology. I'm quite sure you already know more people agree with us "Birthers" than YOU and your ilk!? ...Right, Mr. Zorn?
Feel free to email Eric Zorn and let him know he's a disgrace for calling members of the Armed Forces "whackjobs" and he should retract his libelous piece. There is an email tool located at the bottom of this post and at the top right of this page. Zorn's email address is; email@example.com --- firstname.lastname@example.org
UPDATE: Zorn's previous writings explains Zorn's defense of Obama and his attack on members of the Armed Forces. He is a staunch defender of Obama's close friends and domestic terrorists, Bill "I wish I'd planted more bombs" Ayers and Bernadine "stick a fork in the pigs is wild" Dohrn.
Dated 10/8/2008, regarding Bill Ayers; - What is (and isn't)`terrorism'? -
My view is that one can unequivocally condemn the campaign of destruction and bomb-setting waged by the Weather Underground and still ask whether "terrorism" is or was the right word to describe that form of violent guerrilla protest.
To me, a terrorist is one who attempts to create malleable fear in a population through random acts of mayhem; someone who uses his own amoral unpredictability to magnify the power he is attempting to exert in an effort to create change.
Someone who bombs an abortion clinic or animal-research facility, say, in the middle of the night is not a terrorist, by this definition, because the purpose is not to prompt employees or clients to fear for their safety.
Someone who bombs an abortion clinic or animal-research facility in the middle of day is a terrorist, by this definition, because the purpose is to prompt fear not only among employees and clients of that clinic, but among employees and clients of other clinics.
Put another way, terrorists want to take innocent lives; violent guerrilla protesters (if that's the best way to say it) don't.
I see such a practical and moral difference between the two that using "terrorist" to describe them both strikes me as inaccurate, misleading, and, in the case of Ayers, deliberately inflammatory... Source; http://blogs.chicagotribune.com/news_columnists_ezorn/2008/10/what-is-and-isn.html
Dated 8/16/2008, re-published by Zorn regarding Bill Ayers; The calm after the storm -- School reform crusader Bill Ayers works within the system now, but don't ask the former Weatherman to apologize for his radical past.
Education equals liberation is Ayers' battle cry now. Schools, not jails. Books, not bombs.
Ayers and an old comrade from SDS, Mike Klonsky, run the Small Schools Workshop to mentor and provide guidance and technical support to educators seeking to start small schools. So far, the workshop has helped 150 such schools open their doors.
"We've learned how to work within the system," says Klonsky. "The fight to save and improve public education embodies all the issues we were fighting for back then."
The two men "are like family" today, Klonsky says. But back then, "I led the fight against the Weatherman," he says. "I wasn't big on blowing up toilets and statues. They wrote a big piece denouncing me. Bill was one of the co-signers. Now we're on the same train. We still disagree about things, but . . . as long as we don't talk about '69, we're OK."
It irks Ayers when people tell him-as they often do-how hard it is to believe that he was once a Weatherman. "What do they expect," he asks, "horns and tails? We were ordinary people trying to do our best in extraordinarily extreme and violent times."... Source; http://blogs.chicagotribune.com/news_columnists_ezorn/2008/08/the-calm-after.html
Now read these articles about the nexus between Bill Ayers, Michael Klonsky and Barack Obama and then remember the words of Obama as Ayers being just some guy he knows in his neighborhood. And Eric Zorn appears to be their press agents rehabilitating and rewriting history for them, i.e., Ayers and Klonsky and obviously Obama which he continues to protect to today. He's obviously part of the network of fellow travelers in Chicago. Read these two below...
