Arizona sheriff unveils Obama birth probe
Associated Press ^ | March 1, 2012 | JACQUES BILLEAUD

Posted on 03/01/2012 9:16:11 PM PST by neverdem

America's self-proclaimed toughest sheriff finds himself entangled these days in his own thorny legal troubles: a federal grand jury probe over alleged abuse of power, Justice Department accusations of racial profiling and revelations that his department didn't adequately investigate hundreds of Arizona sex-crime cases.

Rather than seek cover, though, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is seeking to grab the spotlight in the same unorthodox fashion that has helped boost his career as a nationally known lawman.

Arpaio on Thursday unveiled preliminary results of an investigation, conducted by members of his volunteer cold-case posse, into the authenticity of President Barack Obama's birth certificate, a controversy that has been widely debunked but which remains alive in the eyes of some conservatives...

Notice how the ASSociated Obama Press starts the article in the first paragraph that has nothing to do with the issue.

Indeed. Those first couple of sentences perfectly reverse cause and effect.

Yes, I believe it was in January. Arpaio even told the press at his press conference.

Funny, too - I scoured that “news article” for any mention of even one piece of actual EVIDENCE that was presented today, and could not find one mention of actual evidence.

I don’t think the author was even at the press conference, or at least there is nothing to prove otherwise. The article itself could have been written 2 months ago.

And this passes for journalism? I’d call it urinalism: pee on the targeted people as commanded.

Time for the rest of us to flush it to where it belongs though.

computer-generated forgery

if Joe says it's a forgery, I believe him 100%, 'specially considering how many males from Kenya named 'obama' are being discovered floating around our country lately. (ref: the obama files)

Joe, if you say that both items were forged, then have the courtesy to support your statements with proof.

Jacques, the AP White House stenographer, trying desperately to discredit and undermine Joe to protect his Socialist Muslim Lord, Little Stevie Soetero.

Video: MCSO: Preliminary Findings on Obama Birth Certificate

This is the principle preliminary finding of a six-month on-going Sheriff's Cold Case Posse law enforcement investigation into the authenticity of Obama's birth certificate and his eligibility to be president.

Investigators advised Sheriff Arpaio that the forgers committed two crimes: first, in creating a fraudulent document which the White House characterized, knowingly or unknowingly, as an officially produced governmental birth record; and second, in fraudulently presenting that document to the residents of Maricopa County and to the American public at large as "proof positive" of President Obama's authentic 1961 Hawaii long-form birth certificate.

A copy of the full press release from the MCSO is available at this link:

Typical AP -- starts off by denigrating the messenger...

In fact,

"At a news conference, Arpaio said the probe revealed that there was probable cause to believe Obama's long-form birth certificate released by the White House in April is a computer-generated forgery. He also said the selective service card completed by Obama in 1980 in Hawaii also was most likely a forgery."

is all the "reporting" they do -- the rest is attacks on Arpaio...

Heckuva "news reporting" organization is AP...
