The latest intrepid Birther sleuth is Eugene Bielinksi. Mr. Bielinksi was on the Chalice Show last night. He is an acquaintance of Chalice, a fellow teabagger and Birther. He said he was the source of the Stanley Ann Dunham University of Washington transcript that he obtained from the University of Washington and sent to Sharon Rondeau at the Post and Email. Those transcripts confirmed that the Birthers were wrong on claims that Dunham started classes in Seattle a mere two weeks after the young Obama was born in August 1961. The transcripts showed classes started a month later in September and that Dunham was a correspondence school student to boot.
[Comment: Does anyone else think it is odd that UW would send a complete stranger a copy of Stanley Dunham’s college transcript? I think someone at UW screwed up.]
Bielinski, a Wisconsin resident who describes himself as a genealogist, said that he had contacted the University of Hawaii and confirmed that Barack Obama, Sr. was enrolled in summer school there in 1961. Ironically the summer term ended on August 4, 1961, the day of the future President’s birth. Bielinski conceded that his finding means that Stanley would have had to travel on her own to Kenya in the seventh month of pregnancy or later for Obama to have been born there. He conceded that to be impossible considering the cost and difficulty of travel at the time. (This is something sane folks have been saying for two years, whether or not Obama Sr. was with her.) If Bielinski continues with this quality of research we may have to make him and honorary Obot! To this listener it was unclear what the point of Bielinski’s appearance on the show actually was. It didn’t help matters that Chalice did most of the talking and drawing all sorts of crazy conclusions along with her callers as to what the U of H information meant.
Sharon Meroni, aka Chalice, aka Chalice Jackson, aka Liberty Chalice, returned to BTR after a two month absence during which she has been part of an outside group of teabagging agitators in Wisconsin and had been continuing to ineptly pursue an appeal of her futile effort to make candidates show birth certificates against the Illinois State Board of Elections. About the only thing new we learned on that case is that her attorney, Steve Boulton, confided to Meroni that he would have preferred not to have come into the middle of this box full of manure. Boulton is a Republican party attorney from Chicago and is working part time to help Meroni with her appeal. Meroni claimed that the Illinois Court of Appeals had accepted Boulton’s motion to file the appeal late and that the ILSBOE now had 35 days to respond. Remember this case is an appeal of the dismissal of her mass challenges of third party candidates in the November election for US Senate.
As one chatter at the Fogbow so eloquently stated it “there are two hours of my life I will never get back”.
