‘Truther’ Corsi: Impeach Bush And Cheney

From YouTube and our friend Jake Tapper at ABC News:

Jerome R. Corsi speaking to a conference in Tulsa OK on stopping the NAFTA Super Hwy said President Bush and many others need to be impeached.

Democrats Seek to Undermine Anti-Obama Author With His Own Words

August 14, 2008

Today a full-blown Democratic campaign emerged to undermine one of the authors who helped destroy Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., in 2004.

The New York Times referred this week to author Jerome Corsi – author of a screed against Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, “The Obama Nation: Leftist Politics and the Cult of Personality,” which will debut on the New York Times best-seller list for nonfiction hard cover books this Sunday at No. 1 — as a “conservative gadfly.”

Based on some of Corsi’s previous writings, that’s probably one of the nicer terms for him.

And officials from the Obama campaign and the Democratic National Committee – aided by the Democratic activists at Media Matters – are doing everything they can to make the public aware of those words.

Beyond the questionable and disputed claims in Corsi’s anti-Obama book and the one Corsi co-authored in 2004, “Unfit for Command,” which sought to discredit Kerry’s Vietnam war service, Corsi has, as a poster on the conservative site freerepublic.com, made a number of comments that are pretty out there.

Writing as “jrlc,” Corsi wrote that maybe the Pope “can tell the UN what he’s going to do about the sexual crimes committed by ‘priests’ in his ‘Church’ during his tenure. Or, maybe that’s the connection — boy buggering in both Islam and Catholicism is okay with the Pope as long as it isn’t reported by the liberal press.”

He also wrote that “this is what the last days of the Catholic Church are going to look like. Buggering boys undermines the moral base and the lawyers rip the gold off the Vatican altars. We may get one more Pope, when this senile one dies, but that’s probably about it.”

He wrote of the Democratic Party that it’s “the official SODOMIZER PROTECTION ASSOCIATION of AMERICA” and of Arabs he wrote “RAGHEADS are Boy-Bumpers as clearly as they are Women-Haters — it all goes together.” At another time he wrote “why it isn’t the case that Islam is a worthless, dangerous Satanic religion? Where’s the proof to the contrary?”

And of Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-NY, Corsi asked “Anybody ask why HELLary couldn’t keep BJ Bill satisfied? Not lesbo or anything, is she?”

(We’ll see how many anti-Obama angry Clinton supporters embrace Corsi’s book regardless.)

As Politico noted this morning, Corsi “has left a trail of wild theories, vitriol and dogma that have called into question his credibility.”

Corsi told Politico, “I wrote those to be provocative and I said I would not use that kind of politically incorrect language again, and I don’t believe I have.”

Democrats seeking to discredit Corsi have pointed out that he’s made other interesting comments, such as in a January 29, 2008,  interview with a conspiracy-minded radio host when Corsi said the US government wasn’t telling the whole truth about what happened at the World Trade Center during 9/11. Corsi gives much credence to the claim by physicist Steven Jones who claims the towers exploded because of explosives inside the building.

“World Trade Center dust forms the iron sphere that can only be formed at extremely high temperatures,” Corsi said, “jet fuel doesn’t…The government’s explanation of the jet fuel fire is not a sufficient explanation to explain the evidence of these spheres – these microscopic spheres – that Steven Jones has proved existed within the WTC dust.”

The DNC calls Corsi “too crazy even for Swiftboat liars,” noting that the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported in September 2004 that “Jerome Corsi has dropped from the marketing” – of “Unfit for Command” – “because he has been revealed as the author of religiously bigoted remarks published on a Web site. Corsi not only considers Muslims to be pederasts, but he took the trouble to slam Catholic priests and refers to the pope as senile. Rather than wonder whether a book written by such a man can be trusted, the marketing tactic has shifted to pretend Corsi doesn’t exist.” …

Needless to say we hold no brief for Mr. Obama. We also detest the paid stooges at Media Matters.

And of course little or nothing in “Unfit For Command” has been successfully challenged. But, as John O’Neil himself has stated, Mr. Corsi was not so much the co-author of that book as he was an editor.

(Though he probably did add a lot of the material in the book’s second half. Much of it lifted from researchers like yours truly.)

And it is likely that much of what appears in his latest tome is true, if not original to Mr. Corsi.

However, it is undeniable that Jerome Corsi is an opportunistic crackpot. He is also a plagiarist. (As I and others know from personal experience.)

As the article notes, Mr. Corsi has called for the impeachment of Bush and Cheney. He is also a “truther.”

Moreover, Mr. Corsi has made a science (and a lot of money) out of scraping together other people’s work and marketing it as his own.

Corsi is the last person on earth who should be leading the charge against Obama.

It’s almost enough to make one suspect a conspiracy. (Hey, maybe there’s a book in that!)

You can hear Mr. Corsi waxing “truther” with Steven Jones here.
