Is it just me or does something just smell fishy around here??
Self

Posted on 09/04/2012 5:29:13 PM PDT by timlilje

So I began thinking about the chronological order of things today. Just 100 days after President Obama takes office he directs the Attorney General to open an investigation on Sherrif Joe Arpaio(who heads up the Cold Case Posse). This investigation has been ongoing for years. Nothing has been found yet.

A few weeks before the GOP Convention Donald Trump was parroting about something really big that was going to come up during the convention. He said he couldn't divulge the information now but it would come out during the convention.

Well, the convention came and went. Nothing came up and Mitt Romney gave his speech, the convention was closed Thursday night.

Friday evening document dump time came and the Attorney General's Office puts out a paper to the effect that the investigation of Joe Arpaio has been closed.

Is there a connection here. Perhaps a little dealing between Trump/Arpaio and the Administration. Did Arpaio/Trump find something and the deal was to bury it and the Adnistration would drop the investigation? It just doesn't make sense.

I know Donald likes to build everybody up about something that normally turns out to be small fries but he has always released something, even if it didn't meet our expectations. This time we get crickets from the media, both Liberal and Conservative about this as well as Trump.

Am I reading too much into this??

Thanks, good to hear.

Though of course we know that doesn’t really mean anything, and it’s not like he’d announce the day that the DOJ let him go that he was dropping.

If people find out that obama isn’t who he says he is, has a fraudulent BC and SSN, and used those to get where he is along with willing accompolices, along with people who looked the other way and let it happen, a lot of people will wind up in prison. Being president or a member of congress does not put one above the law. Forgery, identity theft, and fraud are serious charges.

Trump is about Trump. Period. Politically, he stands for nothing. He’s been on all sides of the fence. He’s chummy with Democrats, yet claims to be a conservative when it suits him. If Trump could get more long term attention (and make more money) from declaring he was just joking about the birther stuff as a ruse to prove the Republican party was somehow racist, he would. Why anyone takes this guy seriously is a mystery to me. Trump is about nothing more than building the Trump brand.

I don’t think the good sheriff is about making deals. We did hear something about “proof positive” on Indonesian citizenship a few weeks ago, nothing has come from it though. I think Romney would be inclined to have his convention and move along. Let Trump drop bombs in Oct.

In these times, where black is white, right is wrong, up is down.....The anti-christ is not so far away....if not already here.

The “fight” has just begun. Start reading your Bibles, if you haven't begun to already do so. The TIME has begun.

I truly thought we could change things around...being a stupid human, yes I did.

But He knew better. I still believe we can lesson the destruction coming.

Talk to people. Try to get them on His side. It seems to be our only salvation.

In my own little personal insignificant life, I try to convince those...and fight against the evil penetrating our lives.

Not such an easy task. I have my own demons in which I am trying to send back to hell...which ALL of us does.

Aug. 26,2012

Mitt Romney said on Friday in his native state of Michigan that, “No one has ever asked to see my birth certificate. They know that this is the place that we were born and raised.” The Republican presidential candidate insisted afterwards that it was just a joke. That didn’t stop Obama campaign manager Jim Messina from immediately used the comment in a fundraising appeal, calling it “a new low for Mitt Romney.”

“That wasn’t a low at all,” the real estate mogul told me in a sit-down interview on Sunday in Sarasota. “The low was when they accused Gov. Romney of essentially murder, when they called him a felon. Those are the lows. What he said is not a low at all.”

Mr. Trump said that more will come out about the legitimacy of Mr. Obama’s birth in the weeks and months leading up to the election. The Constitution says that only native-born Americans can be president. Mr. Trump cited polls showing that, “A tremendous amount of people believe there is certainly a validity to it.”

“Is there a connection here. Perhaps a little dealing between Trump/Arpaio and the Administration.”

Dang, way to throw Sheriff Joe under the bus. It is my understanding from news reports that they dropped the criminal charges because they can’t prove Sheriff Joe did anything wrong. They probably thought it unwise to continue the harassment this close to the election.

Sheesh.

By the way, they are still continuing to harass Sheriff Joe with civil suits. See link below.

In my opinion, Trump is Trump. He’s in it for himself. Take him for what he is worth.

” - - - the Attorney General’s Office puts out a paper to the effect that the investigation of Joe Arpaio has been closed.”

The key phrase is “ - - - to the effect - - - .” These are the words of Lawyers, FEDERAL Lawyers, the lowest form of life known to Mankind - - - .

Nothing has been officially closed. Suspended, maybe, for now - - - .

NO

Althogh I wouldn’t trust Trump - he’s a fence jumper, Joe A. would not fold, most especially to O’bummer.

Towards the end of this month, there is scheduled a meeting of the posse, and MANY others, so many that it will be held in the theater - regarding what they have.

Maybe THAT has more of a connection to the story going ‘round that the O’bummer’s abode in Chi-town in for sale and they are looking at a $35 million house in Hawaii - with a move in date planned for jan, 2013.

Who might be chasing who out of town?.

Those in the know, know what to know when to know and when you know what you know you don’t talk about what you know if you are in the know. Known knowns are knowns, and if you know then you have insight into the known knowns and we want the known knowns known but sometimes knowing the known knowns takes timing to let the known knowns known.

Make sense?

Today there are reports that DNC lawyers have been warned by “Judicial Watch” that any Democrat certifying Obama’s eligibility at the state level could later be brought up on fraud charges. There are “maneuverings” going on in the back ground and people are getting “tetchy.”

I like to believe ? want to believe that Sheriff Joe Arpaio with maybe Trump's paid lawyers and investigators found some things on Mr. Obama and the justice department said " Uncle " dropped the false trumped up charges on Sheriff Joe.
That maybe was the whole game all along on Sheriff Joe and the injustice department, to twist his arms to give up his quest in finding more about Obama's birth.

One could without strict control become rather paranoid viewing many of the things brought out at this site and elsewhere. : )
What I do hope is that we shall see some very revealing stuff being brought forth soon by sheriff Joe to add to the rather excellent work his pose and he has thus far delivered. I believe as has been advertised to come out in September time frame. My immediate thought would be. Things thus far discussed and evaluated over time from a number of sources shall be set into concrete as being valid facts, the world can view with certainty, in regards to the scum bag from Kenya.

Sheriff Joe won’t abandon Obama probe
Hunt for truth continues, even if media ignore evidence

http://www.wnd.com/2012/09/sheriff-joe-wont-abandon-obama-probe/

The Obama administration may have dropped a legal case against Arizona’s Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, but that doesn’t mean “America’s toughest sheriff” has any intention of dropping his pursuit of the truth about the sitting president.

“We’re continuing it,” Arpaio told WND senior staff reporter and radio host Aaron Klein, of his office’s investigation into the document the White House released as Obama’s purported birth certificate. “We haven’t given up on it.”

SNIP

When Klein asked the sheriff if he thought the birth certificate would be a significant issue in the election, however, Arpaio speculated it would continue to be swept under the rug.

“I don’t think so,” Arpaio answered, “because everybody’s ignoring it on both sides of the fence. … Even the media ignores the evidence we have. But we did our job, I was asked to do it, we used our volunteer posse at no cost to the government. We did a great investigation; we’re still coming up with information, so we’ll see what happens.”
