Posted on 03/07/2012 7:44:33 PM PST by Smokeyblue
The lead investigator in Sheriff Joe Arpaios review of the authenticity of Barack Obamas birth certificate today unloaded a bombshell about the case: that he was told by sources members of the media were threatened with federal investigations should they continue to report on the birth certificate issue.
Lead investigator Mike Zullo told WND that as he was preparing information to be presented to the public it was clear that the mainstream media was not going to be in attendance at the sheriffs scheduled new conference, where he revealed facts suggesting both fraud and forgery in the image of a Hawaiian birth certificate that the White House released as proof positive of Obamas eligibility for office last year.
During our investigation, we actually were told [that media] had been threatened with FTC investigations. Commentators [had been] threatened with their jobs, Zullo said. The threats were so intimidating that some individuals quit their positions over safety concerns for their families, he said.
So the problem became to get the information to the American public in spite of an intentional media blackout, since citizens still must make critical leadership decisions about their government through the election process.

Good points !
Since when has National Review Online been an investigative agency?
I didnt know that when Barry the Kenyan Guy said he was going to fundamentally transform this country that he meant he was going to turn it into a fascist police state. Were in a heap of trouble.
People in high places throughout the government have been told not to cross the line. Their families have been threatened. How else could all the treachery we see just continue and continue and continue without anyone making noises and raising hell?
Yes, we’re screwed.
Who would have ever thought that this would happen in the USA? /sarc> Remember 1992 and the bimbo eruptions suppression team, 1998 and the impeachment threats? History repeats.....
>That kind of thing would never happen here.<
Our heroic congresscritters would never allow it to happen.
They’re all members of the ‘Give me liberty or give me death’ crowd.
A lot of us are working on various Obama projects. I’m looking into Obama’s contact with a Soviet agent of influence. I was the first to bring this to the public’s attention and it was written up in the Wash. Post, March 22, 2008, Dana Milbank’s smear column on page 2 or 3.
One of my happiest contributions was to the “cause” was for the book “Unfit for Command” about John Kerry and his far-left connections in the Hanoi Lobby. More of my contributions can be found on the Swift Boat Veterans Against John Kerry website, as well as in Scott Swett’s book “To Set the Record Straight”, about Kerry’s service in Vietnam, where I was a journalist.
I was in Nam and Cambodia 41 years ago so I’ve put on a few miles and a couple heart attacks along the way. I’m hoping that the younger conservative whippersnappers will go out and get the story and the truth about Obama.
Otherwise, we old-timers will have to put on our “junggies” and get back in the Big Muddy to show them how to do the job right. Not a bad thought, at that.
What gets me about articles like this is that they concentrate on the BC. They pull statements that it has been “debunked” and such. However, they fail to mention and ask these outfits that claim the BC forgery was “debunked” about the other part of the investigation- the forged selective service registration. To me that is the more serious of the two. That is tampering with a federal record.
man things are getting way interesting.....and way scary
And Breitbart is gone. One of the very few who stood up and spoke up with courage.
I thought the same thing.
Lasseter described Breitbarts skin color as bright red.
This is from a post under the article:
"Lasseter described Breitbarts skin color as bright red."
http://www.crimefilenews.com/2012/03/eyewitness-speaks-out-about-andrew.html Sounds like cyanide poisoning.
The skin of a cyanide-poisoned person can sometimes be unusually pink or cherry-red because oxygen will stay in the blood and not get into the cells. The person may also breathe very fast and have either a very fast or very slow heartbeat. Sometimes the person's breath can smell like bitter almonds, though this can be difficult to detect.

I just sent sent this breaking news about AB eyewitness to his death to Rush Limbaugh three times in a row with different headers to get his attention. Please everyone including ponygirl lets send this to him enough times to get his attention about it. I also happen to think we need to send this to Andrew's site too. They may well have not seen this breaking news story as it apparently has been buried by TMZ who it the video was sold to.
Heh, I just wrote that off to you being one of us older Ed Sullivan “we have a really great shoe” viewers of yore.
The fact the WND has not shied away from the elegibility issue tells me they are the ONLY credible source for news. THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES HAS PRESENTED FORGED DOCUMENTATION. That should have been the headline story of every media outlet in the past week. Rather, the scant coverage that was afforded this story always cast doubt on the messenger and totally ignored the message. Even Fox did its best to ignore the facts uncovered by the investigators. Something is definately afoot and the power behind it is vast. So vast that it must have a unifying force. Since one of the missions of this force is to hide truth, I conclude that the force is evil. The greatest force of evil is Satan. I’ll bet that if we ever find out who on earth is behind this coup, we will find that they bow down to the great deceiver. For this reason, our most potent weapon is prayer and TRUST in the Lord.
He will deliver us if we live up to the motto on our coins.
I don’t know how that tagline got there. It’s not mine.
I just read the two special reports:
Communism in Hawaii and the Obama Connection (Special Report)
Communism in Chicago and the Obama Connection (Special Report)
They were both good reads. Having said that, you more than anyone should know what we're up against and why some would like to remain anonymous. Andrew Breitbart was a younger conservative whippersnapper (with a voice) and now he's dead.
Even MORE manila envelopes with pictures of family and loved ones left at people’s doorsteps or on windshields?
Really? /ridicule or irony or criticism, but not sarcasm
Mike Zullo, commander of the Cold Case Posse, has corroborated the claims. That’s what this report is saying, though not as clearly as it could/should.
Back when it was acceptable to call women "nuts and sluts"?
Nahhh, nobody remembers that...
And the “theories” are???
The information that we got, which these people refused to step forward with out of fear, but shared afterward, came independently they dont even know each other from distance parts of the country, that investigations of major media outlets [were planned] if they continued reporting, he said.
Do you trust this Administration to conduct an honest, fair and reasonable investigation?
Or do you think (as I do) it would probably be closer to the Inquisition?
And can you tell us what YOU thought he meant???
The one they showed us certainly was.
I can't help but wonder if it was the video...
Well, when even a comedian who imitated and offended 0bama dies of unknown causes at 49 this past week, and said death is reported in little-known media, you have to think every conservative should start to never leave food unattended at a restaurant and to bring your own water.
The witnesses are scared for their lives. Breitbart was fearless and he’s dead now. Hagman said that he couldn’t make the signed statement he received from a talk show host public because the source was fearful.
Another link I gave in a recent post says that Glenn Beck left Fox because he couldn’t provide protection for the lower-level staffers who were being repeatedly threatened by Soros thugs and Fox refused to protect them. Somebody on the Fox Board of Directors is in thick with Soros’ money so they were dictating what Beck could and couldn’t say.
When I was trying to figure out the credibility of Hagman’s claims I constructed a timeline of pertinent events, and what I saw convinced me that his claims were not only credible but that the same threats were basically made PUBLICLY by Media Matters when they said in an interview with Ben Smith that they were conducting “guerilla warfare” on Fox to destroy NewsCorp through BRITISH regulators, right after Sean Hannity agreed with Donald Trump on Obama needing to present his BC. Media Matters has been monitoring exactly how slavish each on-air personality (but especially Hannity) have been in their treatment of Obama’s eligibility issue. They’ve noted every veiled attempt to not lick Soros’ feet in a stalking manner. When you actually see the timeline it is nauseating.
And I have it from a very good source that Hagman dropped the story after that Laurie Roth interview because one of his informants was killed and he was very afraid for a particularly vulnerable informant.
I don’t know if Arpaio can put that informant in a witness protection program, or if that would have to be done at a federal level - in which case it would be Eric Holder providing a “bodyguard” to protect a critical informant from his own thugs. Not good. And yes, that is the level we’re at right now.
We know of murders in his “church”(???) and we know of other murders i.e. Passport investigation. Young guys like Andrew Breitbart & Steve Bridge just suddenly keels over by “Natural Causes.” We also know the SCOTUS had a secret meeting on January 14, 2009 and we now know how the whole Juditiary system is mute like oysters and clams. And don’t forget before that we something called Arkancide!!!
Barack Obama, Caudillo
The Spanish term “caudillo” (pronounced cow-THEE-yo) refers to a strongman or autocratic leader. Latin America has had a number of caudillos. Some have been right-wing (i.e., anticommunist, pro-American, such as Somoza in Nicaragua), others left-wing (socialistic and anti-American, like Perón and Chávez), but since Jimmy Carter used his one-term presidency to achieve the extinction of the pro-American species, today’s caudillos are all leftists.
1) Demonizes the rich. In Latin America, there have often been legitimate reasons for resenting the rich. The Spanish conquistadors often established a system rigged to keep the poor from making economic, social, and political progress. No similar oppression exists here in the United States, where talent and drive can propel virtually anyone to great success. The nearest thing we have to a built-in systemic barrier to individual advancement might be the lousy inner-city schools in which many Americans are trapped, but the blame there lies more with Obama and Democrats than with “the rich” against whom the lefties rant.
2) Employs populist rhetoric about being the champion of workers, and then forges alliances with powerful labor union bosses while adopting policies that throw many workers under the proverbial bus. Think the UAW, the NLRB, etc. on the one hand and sluggish employment on the other in the Age of Obama.
3) Depletes the national treasury and impoverishes the country through heavy taxes and depreciation of the currency — the results of spending extravagantly on programs that buy the loyalty of his political supporters. Bailouts, green boondoggles, the (non-)stimulus plan, ObamaCare, etc., show Obama to be a master of this tactic.
4) Knows that money is power, and so grabs de facto control of capital and banks, thereby establishing a chokehold on the economy’s windpipe. That is why Obama is so anxious to get the zealous Richard Cordray up and running at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau with its unspecified, and therefore arbitrary, mandate.
5) Asserts heavy controls over private businesses, dictating what they must produce (e.g., solar energy, electric cars) or where they may locate (Boeing).
6) Bypasses the legislature and rules by decree — e.g., czars and rogue agencies like the EPA.
7) Chafes at constitutional limits on his power. Thus, Obama complains to NBC’s Matt Lauer, “What’s frustrated people is that I have not been able to implement every aspect of what I said in 2008,” and then he makes unconstitutional pseudo-recess appointments.
8) Rides roughshod over long established legal principles — e.g., imperiously overturning two centuries of settled bankruptcy law by stiffing the secured bondholders of Chrysler and GM.
9) Betrays his populist supporters by forging lucrative alliances with select members of the Big Business establishment — as Obama has done with health care providers, auto-makers, and others, as documented in Tim Carney’s book Obamanomics.
10) Aggressively uses his power to harass, weaken, and punish those who don’t support his political agenda:
Exhibit A: Obama grants waivers and exemptions from the onerous financial burden of ObamaCare to his allies while leaving them in place to crush his opponents.
Exhibit B: Team Obama won’t modify Sarbanes-Oxley, uses Dodd-Frank (the aforementioned CFPB) as a hovering threat, makes life difficult for venture capitalists — all policies that have the effect of squelching the development of small entrepreneurial companies, a key Republican constituency (unlike AC/DC Big Business, which gives lavishly to both parties).
Exhibit C: The Obama administration dragged its heels to avoid expediting federal aid to disaster-stricken states with Republican governors — specifically Texas, Virginia, and New Jersey.
11) Has delusions of grandeur, and so makes grandiloquent boasts about such fantasies as stopping the rise of the oceans and healing the planet.
12) Has an outsized ego and manifests narcissistic behavior that causes him to take great offense at those who dare to disagree with him — like Obama’s dismissive treatment of Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer at their recent airport meeting.
13) Is notorious for vote-tampering and fraudulent elections, which calls to mind Obama’s and Attorney General Eric Holder’s jihad against states that pass laws designed to reduce voter fraud through proper identification.
14) Eventually precipitates a confrontation with Christians and particularly the Catholic Church, since the ego of the caudillo can’t abide people regarding anyone else, even the Creator of the universe, as the supreme authority, nor can he tolerate anyone placing obedience to religious convictions and God’s rules above his own grand social engineering plans, as we see in Obama’s attempt to impose health insurance requirements that are objectionable to many Christian Americans.
Will Barack Obama go down in history as the United States’ first caudillo? Probably not, if he loses the election this November. But if he secures a second term — well, we’ll just have to see.
Caudillos typically bulldoze political opposition, become the dominant force in the economic life of the country, and establish a personality cult around themselves. They love power as much as they love themselves, and they aren’t bashful about using their power in defiance of precedents, constitutions, and democratic principles. Until a couple of years ago, I never dreamed that a caudillo could arise in our Anglo-American legal system, upwardly mobile culture, and enlightened constitutional order, but today it seems to be a distinct possibility. Consider the similarities between Barack Obama and the prototypical Latin caudillo.
The lonely wolf crying in the wilderness = America’s Sheriff Joe Arpaio has nothing to lose, because Soetoro’s DOJ is going after him on other matters!!!
And what are we going to do the day they trip the schwitch to OFF, so we have no more access to the internet and social medias or our cell phones???
Excellent post. Thank you.
That’s what it’s coming down to. When I first posted my blog in January of 2010 I explained my reason in terms of “The Dark Knight”, which my family had just watched together the month before. I said that if we allowed the rampant law-breaking that was required for an ineligible person to occupy the White House, we would become a lawless society like in “The Dark Knight”. The fear in “The Dark Knight” was that people in positions of trust were betraying and assassinating people and nobody could know who was going to be next, because the Joker had infiltrators EVERYWHERE.
I was hoping we would not reach this point. But we’re fast getting exactly there. Some in the media who have not been willing to openly address the eligibility issue have still mentioned the general lawlessness of this regime - stuff like the czars, deciding that the Injustice Dept would not defend the marriage law, “recess appointments” when Congress was actually in session, the property of secured Chrysler investors illegally being given to the unions instead, etc. Few are prepared to admit that when you’ve got wholesale lawlessness that destroys the fabric of accountability and the checks and balances, it’s just a short step to the point where government is an active enemy of INDIVIDUAL PEOPLE, as well as an active enemy of the Constitution.
Those who have poo-poohed this issue were warned a long time ago that it would come to this. The acorn they were willing to play along with has become an oak.
Including the Clintons who “nicely” fell into lockstep. The RACE card was a very effective used card also!!!
Sounds like John O’Neil posting???
That’s what I’m thinking is coming before long. If not through an act that can be traced directly to the regime, then through an Iranian EMP attack.
By the time an EMP attack happens, though, the Hezbollah and Hamas operatives they’ve been saturating our country with through our open borders will know it’s their cue to begin the communist-Islamist coup. At that point what will matter is whether we have enough willing guns to fight the coup, all over the country.
May I add the revelation of INS entry cards for that week missing!!!
Remember previously from FOIA that Passport information pages for SAD was ALSO missing???
There are 143 possible causes of red skin - several related to hypertension:
He had a history of heart problems. If it was due to high blood pressure then the skin color makes sense.
Yeah, just like your own profile page!!!
Sorry, for once I have to dissagree strongly. He was partly in the box and crowd with the rest at FAUX and other outlets. He refused to talk about the NBC issue like many of his TP friends!!!
Butter, I second that totally. I have during the last couple years personally with my own ears heard, a couple times, people tricked Mr. Snerdly and got on the air. As soon as the b.c. or the NBC issue were mentioned, Rush IMMEDIATELY hit the panic button and abruptly ending the conversation and go to a commercial break and never after making any remark of the call but divert it away to other issues!
I have local guy here coming after Rush Limbo, on the same channel WIOD 610 AM, blocking my e-mails when I challenged him on these the same issue!!
It seems very, VERY trange and unlikely that they don’t want to discuss this important issue. They just sweep it under the rug before the vaccum cleaner can get to it!!!
WHY, WHY, WHY???
Absolutely a totally joke or thorughly very sanitized!!!
