Arizona's 'toughest sheriff' to release findings of Obama birth certificate probe (March 1)

Arizona's 'toughest sheriff' to release findings of Obama birth certificate probe
By Daniel Strauss - 02/21/12 03:11 PM ET

Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio will reveal the findings of his office's investigation into the authenticity of President Obama's birth certificate on March 1, he announced Tuesday.

"Once again I take my elected sheriff's status very serious and when the people ask me to do something, I try to do it regardless of the repercussions, the politics," Arpaio said Tuesday at the Maricopa County Republican Party Lincoln Day Lunch and Straw Poll. "So on March 1st I will have a press conference and reveal what we found out during that investigation. And I don't have press conferences just to have my name on television."

In 2011, Arpaio assigned a five-man team to investigate the authenticity of Obama's birth certificate. Some on the right challenged that Obama's birth certificate was fake and that, in fact, Obama was not an American citizen.

While weighing whether to jump into the presidential race, real estate mogul Donald Trump was one of the most outspoken critics of Obama for not quelling rumors that he might not be an American citizen. Obama eventually released his long-form birth certificate in April, disproving the claims.

It was a cheap fake and a forgery. If anything it proved their claims.

What is so significant about March 1st? Why wait until then? Why not release the information as soon as he has it all? The longer he waits the more time barack’s people have to preempt it.

I don’t have high hopes on this. In am in fear of a huge disappointment. The sheriff no more has access to Obama’s records than anybody else. What can he prove anymore than anyone else?

And if he points out corruption then they will say he just has a personal vendetta against Obama.

Even more fearsome is what would happen if he says he did not find anything.

The truth is that the records need to be made available. And until such time then No one will be able to prove who Obama really is. No matter how guilty he is.

He probably realized the heyday the left would have if he released his findings during black history month.

Or he might have been waiting for more information to filter in.

This has been the line in the sand for a lot of Hussein Heads, some of whom won’t defend Hussein UNTIL his lack of history comes up.

I’m a little concerned a Hussein Head birther-hater got to Arpaio and convinced him to utter some McCain-esque endorsement of respect for Hussein’s “citizenship”, and remind Arpaio that he can leave that matter behind and supposedly continue with enforcing the border.

All he proved was that a Photoshop technician was really inept. BTW the LFBC proved he was ineligible because his stated father was a BRITISH SUBJECT.

I wish Sheriff Joe would ride into Ill-Annoy, visit Gurnee, interview a limo driver, check on phone records supposedly held by the Chicago PD, and investigate the death of Donald Young. I would be far more interested in THAT investigation than chasing the lineage of Barrack Hussein Milhouse Davis Marshall Dunham Soetoro Obama.

WND will be webcasting this press conference. This doesn't particularly thrill me since WND is considered by few, even here, to be a reliable news outlet. My personal hope is that the birth certificate angle is just rope-a-dope and that the real focus will be on the SSN, which may be many in number.

He should keep Orly Taitz a thousand miles away from all of this. I think she is a Rat plant to cause birther attacks to fall short. She got herself involved in the Georgia eligibility lawsuit and bollixed it up as usual.

WND is as much about sensation and grabbing incredulous eyes as any lefty media outlet, though coming at the news from a different angle. Really, how many times can you have silly ads about oh a teeny tiny gun is false protection flashed in your face before getting more jaded than figurines in China?

"He probably realized the heyday the left would have if he released his findings during black history month."

That's one possibility, though the Left will demagogue anything negative about "Obama" as racist regardless of when such revelations take place. I've also seen it speculated that he is holding off until after Arizona's 28 February primary to avoid the appearance of intefering with such.

It would seem to be a stretch however, to think that the Cold Case Posse has worked this item for as long as it has, only for Sheriff Joe to finally take to the podium and announce. . . nothing.

Thanks for the Ping, BD.

In this day and age it may be possible that some records are still out there somewhere that the Obama people haven't been able to find and remove, but the sheriff has. Here's hoping!

It is amazing what some call “proof”. I have seen the “Patterson film” of the sasquatch many times and wondered about it and then some clown managed to get on TV “debunking” the Patterson film. He dressed up in a gorilla suit and waddled around and he looked so amateurish that he left me about ninety nine percent convinced that the Patterson film is the real thing. I don’t know what the Patterson film is but it looks NOTHING like the typical man in a movie gorilla suit but amazingly some people think it does.

In short I agree with you, Obama’s last “debunking” of the birth certificate issue only left me more convinced that he is all fake, he proved nothing.

So when will Arizona get its new nuclear powerplant?

Or will Obama declare AZ to have $1.99 a gallon gasoline?

They say every man has his price.

Obama will throw money at his enemies, some will take the gold, and some will take the lead.

But what will the Sheriff take?

“The truth is that the records need to be made available.”
//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

I don’t think the records exist, I am more and more convinced that it is far from just a matter of where he was born or even the fact that his claimed father was never a citizen. I think one or both of his claimed parents are NOT his parent at all and his whole stated history contains only small elements of reality woven in with a lot of stuff made up of whole cloth. If we had an honest and unafraid news media he would have been laughed out of the country with all his BS. He is in reality the Mansourian candidate, no that is not a misspelling.

He is not the great mind that the left keeps pretending that he is, in fact he is nothing more than a puppet who performs as his masters direct and left on his own would be a total failure. Anyone who doubts this needs to do some research.

This is from the Birth Certificate put on the WHITE HOUSE WEBSITE. Notice the 1 on the left verses the DIGITAL 1 on the right.

Obama has put a FAKE Document onto the Public Domain. This should be enough for Sheriff Joe.

Why March 1st?

It takes time to vet foreign citizens, such as our president.

Obama has had four national citizenships. British, Kenyan, Indonesian and American. All acquired before he became an adult.

A true vetting would require contacting three foreign countries and collecting documents held in each. It takes months to do this.

Then add the fact that he has at least a dozen social security numbers. Each one needs to be verified.
