Saturday Night Card Game (Worst race card playing commercial ever)

Saturday Night Card Game (Worst race card playing commercial ever)

From Dr. Jack Kevorkian’s lawyer comes possibly the worst form of attorney advertising ever, a massive play of the race card designed to drum up business in the Detroit area. (h/t OcTEApi in Tip Line)

Did anyone question whether George Romney was qualified to be President?  Hello Geoffrey Fieger, come on down and meet the Google search box which easily pulled up this recent Reuters article:

In George Romney’s case, most of the questions were raised initially by Democrats who cited the Constitution’s requirement that only a “natural born citizen” can be president.

As early as February 1967 – a year before the first 1968 presidential primary – some newspapers were raising questions as to whether George Romney’s place of birth disqualified him from the presidency.

By May 1967, U.S. congressman Emmanuel Celler, a Democrat who chaired the House of Representatives Judiciary Committee, was expressing “serious doubts” about George Romney’s eligibility.

The next month, another Democratic congressman inserted a lengthy treatise into the Congressional Record in which a government lawyer – writing in a “personal capacity” – argued that George Romney was ineligible for the White House because he was born outside U.S. territory.

And also meet Legal Insurrection blog, which previously has discussed Chester Arthur:

Nearly 123 years after his death, doubts about his US citizenship linger, thanks to lack of documentation and a political foe’s assertion that Arthur was really born in Canada – and was therefore ineligible for the White House, where he served from 1881 to 1885….

The focus on his place of birth became an issue in the 1880 presidential campaign, when Arthur was tapped to be the running mate for Garfield.

According to historical accounts, Republican bosses wanted him to provide proof of his birthplace, but he never did.

Democrats, meanwhile, hired a lawyer named Arthur Hinman who sought to discredit Arthur, alleging that he was born in Dunham, Quebec, about 47 miles north of Fairfield. Hinman traveled to Vermont and Canada to research Arthur’s past, eventually concluding that Arthur was born in Canada but appropriated the birth records of a baby brother who was born in Fairfield, but died as an infant.

He later incorporated the findings into a book titled “How A British Subject Became President of the United States.’’

Hey Geoff, is the internet racist too? Or just history?

    Haha! I was just going to say that.

    Romney’s parents were both American citizens. It isn’t merely about being born on U.S. dirt. The underlying issue is about not having citizenship and primary relationship loyalties to another country. In Obama’s case, if he wasn’t born on U.S. soil, then because his mother was married to a Kenyan with British citizenship, he would be a British subject. In addition, it’s unclear but given that he was using the name Soetoro, if he was adopted at some point as a minor by his stepfather, he might not even be a U.S. citizen, let alone natural-born.

      It’s important to define citizenship. It is a legal status conferred upon an individual. In America, that transmission occurs not through the land but through “We the People” (i.e. citizens). In fact, the constitution only has jurisdiction over citizens. Others (e.g. legal residents, illegal aliens) are subject to lesser legislative laws. The second mode of transmission occurs through designation according to a standard rule of law (i.e. naturalization).

    This guy advised Kevorkian?

    He has my full permission to advise Obama.

      It’s already happened. That’s why we now enjoy health care “reform” without addressing underlying causes of progressive costs and limited supplies.

Jeff gettin’ in on that race baitin’ stuff, eh?

I’m surprised his name hasn’t been tied to, that nice Kimberlin fella’.

YET!

I never heard of this guy, but he looks like the archetype b’am-blance chasin’ loi-ya. They are as much of a core Democratic constituency as Big Labor or welfare queens.

My daughter just looked at Feiger and thought I was watching one of those programs where Chris Hanson nabs the Internet perv. You know, “Hi, I’m Chris Hanson from Dateline NBC. Have a seat over there. I want to ask you some questions…”

According to historical accounts, Republican bosses wanted him to provide proof of his birthplace, but he never did.

He later incorporated the findings into a book titled “How A British Subject Became President of the United States.’’

Precedents….I love ’em.

BTW he is Geoffrey with a “G”. I know from sharing a name and a State with the jerk.

    Fieger is the older brother of the late Doug Fieger, lead vocalist of the late-’70s/early-’80s rock group The Knack, best known for their hit song “My Sharona” in 1979.

    I liked his brother … MORE

Jeffrey Feiger is the kind of guy that gives ambulance chasing a bad name.

Jeff needs to visit this blog often so that the truth can set him free…

Recently cleared of campaign finance violations via jury trial (he ran for Governor–believe it or not)..in another failed prosecution by the duly appointed Obama appointee Barbara McQuade, who is batting goose eggs in jury trials-

… here’s one that flies under that radar-

Not so far under that one Jonathan Turley didn’t take notice..

Fieger Loses in Appeal Over His Lack of Civility

http://jonathanturley.org/2009/01/21/fieger-loses-in-appeal-over-his-lack-of-civility/

The Detroit Riots of 1967* were pretty bad. I remember even then the story that Lyndon Baines Johnson delayed allowing troops into the area, to sully Governor Romney’s reputation.

In the Spring of 1968 I was in the 5th Grade. We did pay attention to the assassination of Bobby Kennedy at the Ambassador Hotel after the California Primary, and the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. in Memphis. The question of Romney’s citizenship was a small footnote to a very busy year. Anybody 21 in 1968 would be, now in 2012, 44 years later, 65. Not a particularly large segment of the population.

Interesting that looking for “Detroit Riots”, they’ve had several notable ones, and those are distinguished by the year of the riots. The 1967 riots rank 3rd all time in the U.S.

    I was a 13 yr old living in downtown Detroit (Fort St) near the riverfront during the ’67 riots, while my father was a Detroit police officer. The officers and firemen quit wearing their uniforms because snipers were targeting them. Scary times. I think the death toll was officially put at 40 or 50, something like that, but according to PD lore, there were over a hundred missing person reports filed, as people, mostly gangs, took advantage of the chaos to eliminate, um, problems. Four weeks of pure hell.

    Browndog in reply to Milwaukee. | June 30, 2012 at 8:02 pm

    The riots were not limited to Detroit.

    My Grandpa owned two of the largest gun shops in Sa.gInA.w.

    I remember vividly as a 5 yr. old, how my dad and uncles were in an utter panic to clear the guns and take them to one of the farms-

    I stayed behind in one of the lofts above the gun shop with my favorite uncle as he stood guard in an open window with a rifle…listening to the radio for any information on the movements of the rioters.

    The fear of my dad, my uncles, the “man on the radio” have never left me–it was my first lesson in how fast this country can unravel.

    I pray I never again feel the way I felt that day-

    It wasn’t until later in life I understood what my dad and uncles did. They were not worried about their own safety–they were well armed-

    It was about the possibility of the guns getting into the hands of the rioters, putting the whole community in jeopardy.

      Yikes, I only live twenty miles from Downtown Detroit and thankfully I don’t recall any childhood memories from the riots.
      My dad use to build the Commando V’s you might see in riot photo’s

    Hey , l resemble that year. (bn46). l remember G. Romney. lt proves a nut not falling far from the tree. He was the John Huntsman of his days. All the smart people showed their mental accumen by talking him up. l respected Johnson for choosing not to seek reelection ,he also knew how to handle a dog. ln retrospect he was to teach us how destructive govt. programs are. lt wasn’t so apparant at the time. l only vaguely remember Detroit. lt was a part of the overall turmoil. l voted McCarthy. l knew he had no chance & even then l knew both parties didn’t speak to what l saw for America. l never voted for a major party candidate till 2000. l supported Reagan but he didnt need my vote. AlGore was such a tool l had to vote for Bush. l do not look forward to voting & making calls for Romney but there is no choice. Pray that he doesnt pick “another boring white guy” for veep.

There is no question as to Mitt Romney’s qualification as a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN per his genealogy. (http://cdrkerchner.wordpress.com/2012/01/08/ancestry-ahnentafel-genealogy-chart-for-mitt-romney-by-cdr-charles-kerchner-ret/)

He was born on US soil to two US Citizen parents. End of story.

    RIGHT .. Geoffrey Fieger is an ass

    They had him on the local news asking him about his commercial and to the media it was all just a “matter of fact” type segment…

    Media: Yeah, well you’ve bought local air time and you’re spending your own money on this?

    GF: Yeah, like I said (repeats claims in commercial) you know, those questioning Obama they’re racist .. its because he’s black.

    Media: OK good thank you for coming by.

    end of segment

      Neo in reply to OcTEApi. | July 1, 2012 at 9:01 am

      It’s this kind of stuff that makes me believe Obama will be the last black President for at least a couple of decades. Instead of post-racial, we went into a neo-racial period where everything is now racial, even when it obviously isn’t. I don’t think most folks want to live through this again, until the forget it.

    janitor in reply to PolitiJim. | July 1, 2012 at 2:57 am

    The dirt issue was raised re George Romney, born in Mexico.

Why does Obama’s birth place always devolve into a “Birther” story. Obama, himself, projected to others that he was born in Kenya so he would have the bona fides to “enjoy” the Black Experience. That is the underlying lie of it all.

Ewwwww…

After watching this video I had an intense urge to take a shower.

Geoffrey Fieger ran for governor of Michigan in 1998

Not long ago the local media posed a question to Detroiters if they would vote for a white Mayor…

You can probably guess who liberals had in mind.

The liberal Democrats actively promote racial division, but despite all their efforts relations are quite cordial (except for the young and dumb), most blacks are quite religious and probably somewhat conservative, they just don’t have any voting options.

Besides Catholics there are the Black Baptist ministers and pan-African Methodists… during Barack Obama’s 2008 visit (remember when the Muslim girl wearing the Hijab was removed) where Al Gore pandered to them saying:
If you like B on your BLT, elections matter!
(Black Liberation Theology) – but nobody caught and reported it.

    OcTEApi in reply to OcTEApi. | June 30, 2012 at 7:50 pm

    *They promote racial division until one of Detroit’s institutions goes belly up (DIA, Detroit Zoo, HoBo Hall ect.) and then its WE’re all in this together and said institution should be bailed out.
    In the name of WEgionalism, let’s pass a WEgional tax.

Henry Hawkins | June 30, 2012 at 7:55 pm

lol @ ‘Hobo’ Hall. I went to many a concert at Cobo. The Roostertail too.

    OcTEApi in reply to Henry Hawkins. | June 30, 2012 at 8:13 pm

    Detroit used CoBo as a vehicle to refinance its City debt many times over, then let it fall into disrepair… my county eventually bought it out for $20 Million.

    Suppose that’s our personal responsibility mandate tax.

Mayor Bing had appointed a Black conservative woman to his administration, Karen Dumas a former talk radio host who also worked as a columnist for The Michigan Chronicle

The media and liberal democrats ran her out of there quicker than you can say Jackie Robinson.
Kid Rock publicly stuck up for her.

Hey, Jeff.

You’ve exposed me for the racist I am. Because it wasn’t until Obama became president that I objected to the increasing national debt, waste of resources by this government, its intrusive nature into the lives of citizens, the fate of Social Security and Medicare, whether our government was becoming increasingly socialistic, the question of immigration into this country and this is addressed, and whether I eat too many doughnuts.

LukeHandCool | June 30, 2012 at 8:26 pm

“Can we speak honestly about racism?”

Mr. Fieger … you just don’t have the knack.

Comrade Feiger’s advertisement has 125 views on YouTube. I guess his Detroit slumlord/”street cred” bonafides have lost their edge. I can’t understand why. Who wouldn’t want to swim in a dilapidated toilet full of corrupt leftist turds fomenting racial animosity?

Feiger is just another parasitic leftist hypocrite who’s made enough money on his bankrupt ideology that he doesn’t actually live with the consequences of his grift. Hypocrisy pays big dividends in lefty land.

Drive through Detroit and then drive through Feiger’s neighborhood. I bet there’s a difference. One set of people gets conned, Democrats get votes, Feiger gets rich.

Who’s the racist?

I promise this is an honest question, that was not Martin Short in make-up? Are ya’ll pulling one over on me?

JackRussellTerrierist | July 1, 2012 at 5:15 am

Geoff has always been a self-promoting, whiny sleazebucket.

[…] Professor points to the numerous times that presidents and presidential candidates have had their place of birth challenged AND suggests […]

Agreed, worst play of the race card ever. Veritably incoherent.

The more pressing question is: Why is he doing the “Pee-Pee” dance through the whole spot? Couldn’t they have waited five minutes?
