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...

I went on line to listen to AZ talk radio this morning to see what local hosts were saying about it. The guy and gal hosts on KFYI were LOL’ing and rolling their eyes about it.

They were saying nothing new that the internet crazies haven’t been talking about for three years, and who are the cold case guys, anyway? Going on to say a REAL investigation needs people with degrees in document examination and computer science from USC, etc.

Real retards, back slapping and high five-ing each other.

You’re a class act, Graewoulf. I thought something must have been amiss.

Although actually, from reading just this article a person wouldn’t know any of the actual evidence Sheriff Joe and his posse presented to support their claims. If I hadn’t seen parts of the press conference myself and followed the Freeper thread about it, I would know NOTHING about what evidence was actually presented. And that speaks volumes about how the press intends to bury this whole issue.

I read your thread as well lots of your prior work here..

And you are correct...the reporter of this piece was not there...Hell was not even in Arizona

Here is a report I wrote late yesterday on the Mark Levin thread...

” I was there, forget what one thinks of the issue....this happened......there was press.....cameras and recorders.....a small amount of reporters and a few local network heads and cable folk wired to wi fi talkin back and forth as the story was told

across the street was Joe Supporters w/ signs and flair

opposite corner was the protectors

by the time 3 video was shown and the presenter said it is impossible this document is as reported”
there was no air in the room....to a man and woman everyone knew that crap shown was faked

Even Satan bowed his head and said “ shit “

the rest of it was either....you have an agenda or...what ua gonna do about it Joe

As misleading and slanted is the article by the AP, at least they covered it.

Sheriff Arpaio held his press conference nearly 24 hours ago and there's not a word or a reference on Levin's, Malkin's, Medved's, Hewitt's or O'Reilly's websites. Nothing.

Yes, it would be very easy for them to produce a fake. But it would be difficult for them to produce a paper fake that could pass a forensic analysis AS WELL AS microfilm rolls for multiple years that would explain the known anomalies in the BC’s the HDOH has put out recently AS WELL AS computer transaction logs.

Which is why the posse wants to see that stuff. And which is why we’re in a pickle - because the HDOH can (and most likely will) refuse to honor a state’s law enforcement subpoena for those records and any HI judge would probably refuse to issue a warrant for those records. Because they all know Hawaii is lawless. The posse has a bunch of evidence regarding that. They haven’t brought it out because it’s not part of the central question of whether the documents produced for Obama thus far are forged.

And the other investigate options on the table are Congress (as we watch the DOJ ignore subpoena after subpoena on Fast & Furious, and watch Obama ignore subpoena after subpoena on Solyndra, etc.... and Issa not do a dang thing about it) and the DOJ (which is the most criminal enterprise in America, it seems).

I’m hoping Americans will look at this whole issue and realize that the fox is truly guarding the henhouse and we are in an utterly lawless condition. That’s why this is so serious, IMHO.

The left are like what I’ve seen in alcoholics.

The will do what they want to do, impose on you, break your personal boundaries, and generally ignore all social and legal norms,

until someone actually DOES SOMETHING to stop them.

Holder & the 0bama admin will ignore all subpoenas until those issuing the subpoenas actually take men in with guns to force them to comply with the law.

Then, like the alcoholic example, they will act like they are the offended ones, and you’re the bad guy.

Right now the biggest obstacle is fear. This whole thing could be opened up in no time if the witnesses - even the witnesses we already know of - were not afraid to come forward.

The person who heard Bill Ayers’ mom introduce Obama as a foreign student they were helping to get an American education for is a brave soul. Knowing what Breitbart had said about having a tape of Obama from college that would expose who he is and what he’s about (especially after the info that Obama was at the Ayers home when the Ayers family was helping that foreign student to get an American education) - and realizing that Arpaio gave Breitbart an interview on the posse’s report in advance of the press conference, AND that Breitbart had made a comment in early February about “Just wait until they see what happens on March 1st!” - I can’t help but wonder if Breitbart was actually involved in getting that information to the posse.

The brave soul behind the posse having that witness could very well be Andrew Breitbart. And now he’s dead.

That fact will speak loud and clear to every witness who is considering coming forward. We don’t know what caused Breitbart’s death; probably never will. But the timing of it will make every witness think twice before coming forward - including both the coroner and the wife of Andrew Breitbart, who knows whether or not he has had heart problems (although her father has already said he knew of no heart problems and it’s been reported that Andrew hadn’t seen a doctor in over a year, which doesn’t sound like somebody with a heart problem).

That is what we are up against.

That is what my husband thinks about a lot, as I continue my research. We don’t know whether the sheathing for the wiring in his van was cut the day after I was in contact with Lakin’s counsel, or whether it all just eroded uniformly at the same time. We do know that there are Soros operatives with inroads into our specific neighborhood, and we know that Soros has threatened the media if they reported on this issue and others - to the point that Glenn Beck left Fox because they refused to provide protection for their lower-level staffers who were being continuously threatened.

I will keep fighting and my husband will keep worrying. That’s just where this country is at. Hopefully people will start to realize that something is wrong when housewives are having to drop their quilting to do the investigating and reporting that our law enforcement (except in Arizona) and media refuse to do - and their families have to wonder whether their car is going to explode or somebody’s going to be hit with a heart-attack or cancer-inducing dart. This is lawlessness. The same lawlessness that the ATF, DOJ, etc supported when they forced US gun dealers to sell untrackable guns to the drug cartels who are patterning their methods after Al Qaeda in terrorizing both Mexico and no-go zones within the US.

People have GOT to see that we’re in a critical situation, and if we don’t do something fast we’re sunk.

Yep, it sure worked on me as I was so disappointed that no proof was given in the article that I jumped to the conclusion that the article was accurate.

Thanks to you, my angry FRiends, you were kind enough to hold me accountable for my error of thought and word. THANK YOU!

To Triple: I said/wrote it, so I own it, and then apologized for my error. Now I will have to write IMO, and not the tongue-in-cheek one that you read.

My lesson has been indelible to me as I will do thorough due diligence about ANY MSM article in the future.

Sincerely,
Graewoulf.

Obviously with a comprehension disability too, because Mike Zullo said directly that the multiple examiners who inspected the records are people who are certified document examiners. These are the people who would participate in real-life CSI, Law and Order, Bones, etc.

Somebody should call in and ask them about specific evidence that was presented. For instance, ask them why just Aug 1-7 was missing from the National ARchives’ passenger cards for foreign flights into the US, out of 10 years’ worth of records.

Maybe ask them about the postal stamp cut apart and used to make the incorrect 2-digit date stamp on the draft registration - which was only accessible to the posse through the Sheriff’s office directly?

Maybe ask them about Bill Ayers’ mother around 1980 introducing Obama as a foreign student that they were helping to get an American education - as witnessed by a government worker who has signed an affidavit about that introduction.

You know... all that stuff we’ve all been talking about for the last 3 years. (not)

To carry your “Alcoholics” theme one step further, Where is “the loyal opposition” (Read: REPUBLICANS) who are duty-bound to hold an INTERVENTION/CONFRONTATION?

BTW, maybe we should intervene by filing a Class Action Injunction against Congress and withhold their $ 172, 000 annual pay, until THE NINE SUPREMES dictate their ruling on violation of “legal norms?”

Was anybody from Fox there? Did you know who all the reporters were and who they represented?

What we all need to realize is that these people have been told that if they report on this they and their families could be killed. At least at the national level they were told that multiple times, and based on the way our local Fox affiliates here in Nebraska have handled the eligibility issue I believe it filtered down even to the local levels. It was so bad when we were working on Nebraska’s eligibility bill that even my apolitical friends noticed it and lost respect for the radio talkers which they heard briefly.

There is a much bigger story behind all this. The decision was made to not blow the media away by presenting the rest of what is known, and judging by the media’s unwillingness to handle even this, that was a wise decision. But eventually people need to know the rest of the story. The press already knows it, and that’s why they’re not talking. That’s what we’re up against.

The conservatives have been threatened into silence on this issue. This we know, and not just based on what Hagmann correctly reported.

Fox and radio conglomerates were threatened by Soros and they passed that threat on to their on-air personalities in the form of threats against their careers for sure and possibly their lives or families’ lives.

” - - - Because they all know Hawaii is lawless. “

Sure looks like another “Hawaiian Vacation” of carefree golf, and fun in the Sun needs to be quickly scheduled in to The Obamanator’s busy Campaign Fund Raising shakedown efforts.

Well, MAYBE squeeze in a little time to tidy up some “legal” matters too. Busy, Busy, Busy!

It’s easy for that to happen. Even with those of us who know the media is treasonous - mostly because it takes so much time to check out the original sources (or in this case there was no access to the original source, since they gave no links to anything that would show what really WAS presented at the press conference) and because we can’t believe anybody would be able to get away with what basically amounts to slander of Arpaio by leaving out what he and his posse actually reported.

The only reason they can get away with it, though, is because conservative media has been silenced on this issue through threats. And all we have to do is watch the conservative media ignore this obviously-serious event in AZ, to realize that they really have been silenced. I know these threats for a fact because of other sources I have, but even without those sources the average Joe can know what’s going on just by observing.

” - - - But eventually people need to know the rest of the story. “

Will our sorry Republican Candidates have the courage that you and your husband have demonstrated?

Or, will “the rest of the story” be told by historians decades from now?

Will the powers that be, (are you listening Speaker Boehner?), launch a House Committee Investigation of “Election Irregularities” of the Arrogant Leader of the hostage State of Obamanation, High Poo-Bah Obama?

This is getting to be a cross between Hawaii-Corrupt-Obama, Who killed Vince Foster? and Crime Scene Obamanation, all rolled up in the New York Times sponsored new TV documentary “All Our Wayward Students.”

BTW, none of this will be reported on your MSM stations, as the content has been prejudged by “both” political parties to be offensive to non-thinking adult voters.

The media doesn’t know what’s ahead, what Arpaio or anybody else will do. That is true.

They do know what is behind though - specifically the threats that have been made. That’s the story the public needs to really understand, because that explains how this whole thing could happen as it has. It explains why the people writing the accepted narratives regarding this press conference weren’t even there, and why the “conservative media” lets them get away with it by totally ignoring the issue themselves.

I spent some time recently analyzing the specific steps that were taken that led up to the slaughter of 13 million innocent people in Germany and the countries Hitler captured. There are so many parallels to the Soros/Obama regime it’s uncanny. But the one that is overwhelming is the propaganda. Rush talks about the “state-run media” and people think it’s an exaggeration. It’s not. And it includes Fox, although the Soros puppet-master allows just enough political discourse on Fox to keep up the appearance of it being “conservative”. The factual stuff - not just political opinion but actual documented facts that have the ability to wake people up to the real danger we’re in - are being censored from Fox.

The measure of the news is not just lies being in their actual reports. The measure is also in the truth they REFUSE to say. Death threats have been used to silence this eligibility issue initially, and then when Glenn Beck mocked the eligibility issue in order to protect his people but went on to attack the source that was forcing him to mock this issue (Soros), they tried to threaten him into silence on that too. So he left Fox. It was Fox where all this was happening, in addition to the other TV and radio media companies.

The Holocaust was able to happen at least partially because Hitler silenced all opposition to his regime. Everything the people heard was disinformation, and nobody in the media or government was telling them about the burned bodies; the people knew either by smelling it in the air or by the escaped prisoners that they personally helped or reported.

The reporters have personally smelled the burning flesh from this Soros regime; they have been threatened with it personally. That’s why even the ones who have a brain are acting as mouthpieces for the regime instead.

I think what happens from here depends on what specifically George Soros threatened the media companies with, and who else was given the same threat. And what steps, if any, can be taken to eliminate his ability to carry out that threat.

At this point an investigation into exactly what is holding our entire system hostage is critical, so we know how to resolve that hostage situation.

I am encouraged by the observation that most posters on this thread clearly recognize the blatant Argumentum ad Hominem strategy of this journalist. Unfortunately, it is the standard strategy of many journalists and editors of the Main Stream Media when it comes to protecting Barry Obama (or whatever his name is). Even more disheartening is the pig-headed determination of Obama supporters to dismiss the simple truth that is emerging about Obama. What kind of people will believe unsubstatiated assertions made by journalists (e.g., all accusations about Obama have been demonstrated to be false) and yet dismissed hard evidence? I am reminded of Groucho Marx’s classic line: “Who are you going to believe, me or your lying eyes?
