Arpaio Investigation Brings Up Compelling Questions About Obama's Birth Certificate and Eligibility
Hawaii Reporter ^ | Monday, March 26th, 2012 | MICHAEL P. RETHMAN

Posted on 03/28/2012 7:35:29 PM PDT by Kukai

The tough economic times of late 2008 produced an once-in-a-generation leadership opportunity that a talented, attractive and multi-ethnic young president might have exploited to achieve good things for all Americans.

Unfortunately, President Obama has shown over three-plus years that he’s not that leader – unless killing Osama bin Laden is somehow all that matters. Indeed, in light of a record replete with domestic and international fumbles, including a budget deficit driven to unimagined levels and persistently high rates of unemployment/underemployment, Obama ought to be soundly defeated in November.

However, with so many Americans now feeding at the government trough, his defeat is far from a sure thing.

But still lurking in the media shadows is a compelling constitutional question that won’t leave Barack Obama alone. Obama’s long-form birth certificate, released by the White House amid great fanfare last spring, was recently and very publicly derided by a the nationally known Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County (Phoenix) Arizona.

Finally, after four years of media-abetted obfuscation of Obama's ever-changing documents, someone in authority is finally willing put his reputation on the line and publicly ask raise questions that should have been unambiguously answered years ago.

Ironically, a revival of this political sideshow may be what derails the Obama re-election effort in November. Here’s why: Obama’s self-touted long-form birth certificate, forced into the public arena by then-candidate Donald Trump last spring, was almost immediately exposed as a simplistic cut-and-paste construct -- yet this story has gone ignored for almost a year.

Indeed, an Adobe Illustrator pro and video game writer in Atlanta, who goes by the YouTube handle orangegold1, downloaded the document from whitehouse.gov and quickly exposed it as fraudulent. Orangegold1's initial 7-minute YouTube video depicts a step-by-step forensic deconstruction of the document. This video has had nearly 1.3 million hits thus far and its detractors' criticisms have been thoroughly answered in Orangegold1's follow-up videos.

So will legitimate concerns regarding the latest versions Obama's latest birth documentation continue to go unknown to most Americans? Unfortunately, it's hard to count on reporters and editors in the so-called elite American media to do the right thing in lieu baseless of cheer lead for Obama.

Indeed, the Arpaio investigation has been widely reported in other countries, but so far the story has been covered domestically only by the Washington Times and World Net Daily.

But should the story behind Arpaio’s investigation eventually gain media traction in the U.S., Barack Obama's re-election campaign could be in serious trouble.

Arpaio is the sheriff!

Would he not have access and complete credibility if he walked into the Supreme court and displayed his case? Would he not have standing after all since he is in fact law enforcement?

This all seems so ludicrous to me that no one is listening! I swear this man (usurper) has his hand on the button and has probably told all that he would have no problem in pushing it! What keeps everyone so frightened? I’m perplexed!

I'll be attending a Sun City West/Surprise TEA Party meeting this Sat. afternoon. Sheriff Arpaio and his lead Investigator will be speaking to us.

I was one of the 250 signers of the Petition that was presented to our good Sheriff that began this Investigation. We'll be signing another petition this Sat. to present to our Legislature, AG and Sec. of State asking them to review the evidence and see what can be done about Obama's eligibility to appear on our General Election ballots.

Ought to be an interesting meeting and hope to find out in more detail what was found by the Investigators.

We are expecting a huge crowd for this one!

Most likely she would veto. I never have trusted Jan and feel she stole the border issue to get elected and it worked....but she is a McCain pal and member of the RINO pack so never know which way the wind blows with her.

“I swear this man has his hand on the button...” “What keeps everyone so frightened?”

You nailed it. Many now believe that the government is so infiltrated by true communists (CIA, FBI, military, SCOTUS, Congress, Homeland Security, DOJ, NSA, etc.) and the media that Obama already has total authority and will destroy the nation if challenged. Those who know the danger prefer to remove him via an election. Like Putin, he already knows he will be re-elected. If that is true, then a civil war is likely. Is he a Russian/Muslim/Soros plant?

It makes sense for other countries to report this story. Don’t forget the US goes around the world and lecture nations on how they lack true democratic societies and government. The ultimate counter punch for these nations is to show how screwed up our country is so they can say to us, before you lecture us get your own country in order. Look your POTUS is not even legitimate.

I have a question for you. But first I was in the camp that was not interested because I seriously could not see how one could know with certainty what Obama’s true status was.

But I did have suspicions because I saw Obama and his people try to stonewall repeatedly over the years and spend a great deal of money keeping a $10 paper from being released to the courts or the press. Obama also let a military colonel go to prison rather than release his long form BC. Of course I could see smoke and sense there was a fire somewhere in this.

I saw the press use their standard tactic to label anyone with a suspicion or curiosity as a ‘Birther’.

But I kept out of it for the most part until I saw the deconstruction of the released long form BC. I saw the layers and the time stamps used under the software known as Adobe Illustrator. It was clear then the document was forged. It was not surprising to see the press reaction to those saying the document was a forgery. It was the same tactic used on Global Warming ‘Deniers’.

Sheriff Arpaio alluded to a tantalizing finding, the possibility that the forger could be or was identified. It is possible I suppose that a registration number of the software was somehow embedded in the hex code of the image and that a trace could be made to identify who registered the software.

So here’s the question for you:

Assume the image of the long form BC is a forgery. The forger could have printed out the altered document and then rescanned the printed document to get rid of the software evidence of forgery. It would have been the easiest thing to do.

But the forger didn’t rescan the document.

So either the forger was reckless, not bright, or rushed.

Or the forger was a patriot and wanted the document to be found as a forgery.

Which do you think it was? If it was the second case, should we reward the forger for the service they did the country?

Things to think about.

I'm not knowledgeable enough to get into the forged BC, Hostage. From the onset it was my belief that Obama was not eligible because he is not Natural Born.

In my own case, though my Dad and his family had come to America in 1910, he did not become a citizen until 1936, the year after I was born....and so I, according to our Constitution, am not Naturalized. And so my own situation determined my stance against Obama.

I do believe the BC Obama presented is a forgery, but it is only an added deception when the bottom line is that we know his father wasn't an American citizen, so Obama is not Natural Born!

Yes I know the NBC angle ever since Donofrio filed in court.

But the nuances of history are overlooked in this day and age unless there is something that occurs that is sensational and frightening that will make people pay attention to why there were concerns to begin with.

No one has been able to get progress in court with NBC.

But now we have a high ranking LEO that has found real evidence beyond probable cause.

I was just pointing out for readers here the irony of our forger possibly being a hero; a kind of undercover whistle blower.

Anyways, thanks for being concerned enough to sign the petition. You and your children and grandchildren will hopefully look back and see how you were part of a very few concerned citizens that led to removing the biggest fraud ever in US history.

Which do you think it was? If it was the second case, should we reward the forger for the service they did the country?

Things to think about.

I will once again offer my possible solution to this conundrum. The "forger" was an employee of the Department of Health in Hawaii.

Obama was adopted by Lolo Soetoro in 1965 and his original birth certificate was sealed. He was later adopted again by his Grandparents when he was 10 years old in 1971 (With whom he lived for the next 8 years) which resulted in the Previous Soetoro birth certificate being sealed.

What we are seeing now, is a document which was produced by the Department of Health in Hawaii as a REPLACEMENT birth certificate for an adopted child. Obama's lawyers went to court and had his adoptions annulled or amended, and the court ordered the DOH to produce him a new one.

The failure to flatten the layers or just make a scan of a print-out were the result of the DOH employee not knowing that a PDF contained all that extra information. (Neither did his lawyer, or he would have prevented it from being released. )

To sum it up, the document *IS* a forgery, but it is a "LEGAL" forgery created by the State of Hawaii. No other explanation makes any sense.

The forger is in Hawaii, no document was printed out. The file was emailed to someone close to Obama and posted on the WH website. I believe one copy was printed out for a chosen few to "look" at. The forger probably didn't think about the layers as he/she was probably under the assumption that the PDF would be printed to show the public the two copies and had no idea that the actual file would be available for downloading. If anyone thinks that someone flew to HI to pick up the "two" certified copies then I have a bridge for sale.

Exactly what I think. The only thing I would suggest as a an alternate possibility is that the forger might not have been aware that the layers would expose his(her?) work, or he(she?) may have just forgotten to flatten the image file. Obviously the people handling the file on the White House end were ignorant (probably because they are stupid democrats) and and didn't know they would be posting the evidence of it's own creation when they posted it.

I have suggested that this file may have been sent to Obama's Attorney as a "proof" for him to peruse to insure compliance with his request before the court to amend or replace the document. It would be quite an easy thing for a man knowledgeable in law, but ignorant in the nuts and bolts of computer technology, to send the file on to other ignorant staff members at the White House. Perhaps Obama himself sent the file to his staff after having received it from his attorney?

In any case, this idea makes more sense to me than any other explanation of which I have heard.

I'm pretty sure that one of my Reps will attend as her husband heads up our SCW TEA Party and I have phoned Trent Franks office and they have the information on the meeting and will check to see if he can attend.

Trent's office said they would usually get an invite to attend such meetings and he had not gotten one, and I told her that I was inviting him. He is my Fed. Rep. and not my State Rep. but I would like him to attend. I believe he will if he has no prior engagement.
