Info-Meme of the Week: El Sid’s Birther Gambit

Editor’s Note: despite the world having gone objectively crazy in the past few days (again) I’ve been battling to catch up on what is now becoming a staggering backlog of topics in a variety of forms. I can’t exactly say I’m winning, but progress is being made; albeit slowly and at the cost of great energy. In the meantime, I’ve decided to take a break and drop today’s Info Meme of the Week a little earlier than I expected to.

What’s the “Info meme of the Week?” Each week, we take a look at one issue or scandal largely being misreported in the media in the form of a single, easy-to-share meme that’s backed up by a few verifiable sources underneath the photo. No fuss, no pontificating pinko blogger telling you what this might all mean – just the facts, in one quick snapshot you can show your barely-literate roommates to force them to stop repeating mainstream media deceptions.

Today’s IMotW is a two-for-one special including one older meme and one newer meme designed to tell a connected story; we’ve got longtime intelligence trading, rumor-mongering Clinton “ghoul” Sid Blumenthal in our sights as dirt from eight years ago finally spills out and potentially answers an old question – “why did Obama absolutely refuse to let Sid Blumenthal work in Clinton’s State Department?”

As always, please feel free to share this meme anywhere you’d like and if you can find it in the goodness of your heart to point people you share with towards this site; I would be eternally grateful.

Let knowledge be your light and dank memes be your weapon, my friends.
