Jean Claude Tremblay, a computer graphics expert trotted out by Fox News to authenticate the Ruler’s long-form birth certificate released April 27, is incensed with the network for deliberately misquoting him and for ignoring his requests to correct Jana Winter’s story “Expert: No Doubt Obama’s Birth Certificate is Legit.”

“I no longer trust Fox News. Despite my protests, Fox News will not allow me to correct their story.”

To rebuff those who doubted the birth certificate’s authenticity, Winter wrote, “a leading software expert says there’s no doubt about its authenticity, and he dismisses claims of fraud as flat-out wrong.”

“I never said that. … Ms. Winter has attributed a conclusion to me in the title that I did not mention in the [telephone] interview.”

Tremblay repeatedly asked Winter and Fox News to correct the piece, but the story remains posted without any corrections or qualifications.

“Fox News is not trustworthy … they have never replied to me or allowed me to post my corrections to their report of my comments and views.”

Tremblay, who lives in Montreal, Canada, said that he has no interest in whether or not the Ruler’s birth certificate is bogus or real.

“I’m not an expert on the image modification or typography. … I’m not a detective specializing in the forgery of electronic documents. I am an instructor in graphic design software working to help people work faster, better and smarter.”

Yet Tremblay’s lack of expertise didn’t stop Winter and Fox News from passing him off as an expert on electronic document forgery.  

It’s too bad the people’s champion, Buffo Bill O’Reilly, was more fixated on his fortune than he was lookin’ out for the folks. There’s a sign post up ahead: Next stop, the No Spin Zone.

Andrew Klavan does a masterful job in pillorying the Ruler’s economic plan by comparing and contrasting it with Paul Ryan’s. 

This highly entertaining installment of Klavan on the Culture satirically mocks the left’s Keynesian lunacy and is well worth the few minutes.

Texas lawmakers have passed a bill to evade the federal mandate to ban incandescent light bulbs by 2014 for the environmentally-unsafe, highly toxic mercury-laced compact fluorescent bulbs (CFLs). The bill would allow for the sale of any incandescent light bulbs manufactured in the state.

“[The bill] will allow the continued manufacture and sale of incandescent light bulbs in Texas, even after the federal ban goes into effect.”—George Lavender, Republican state Representative, Texarkana

The Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 mandates states begin phasing out incandescent bulbs, starting with the 100-watt bulb next year.

If Republican Governor Rick Perry doesn’t sign or veto the bill by Sunday, it will automatically become law and go into effect January 1.

“While CFL vendors and environmentalists tout the energy cost savings of CFLs, they conveniently omit the personal and societal costs of CFL disposal.”—Steven Milloy, publisher JunkScience.com

We’ll soon know whether Perry will man-up and fight for individual liberty and states’ rights or wuss out and accept the totalitarian decrees of the nanny state.
