Skip to comments.Arizona deputies in Hawaii seeking Obama birth certificate
Posted on 05/22/2012 7:56:20 AM PDT by Brown Deer
Two men who identified themselves as being from the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office in Phoenix went to the Hawaii Department of Health Monday morning requesting verification of President Barack Obama's birth certificate, said a state spokeswoman.
A Hawaii deputy attorney general gave the men information concerning the legal requirements to obtain such a document; the requirements are posted on the Health Department's website. The two men then left the office, Health Department spokeswoman Janice Okubo said.
The two men showed Maricopa County Sheriff's Office badges and identified themselves as Michael Zullo and Brian Mackiewcz, Okubo said. They are "authorized by the Sheriff of Maricopa County, who is conducting an official investigation," a spokesman for the sheriff's office said in an email.
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has been researching Obama's residency status using a volunteer cold-case "posse," but now has employed a taxpayer-funded deputy, The Arizona Republic reported Monday.
Zullo is a volunteer, the Republic reported, but Okubo said that Mackiewicz presented a business card showing he is with the Threats Management Unit of the sheriff's office.
Arapaio's birth certificate investigation comes as the U.S. Justice Department is suing his office for alleged civil rights violations, including discrimination against Hispanics.
Separately, Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett, who says he is not a "birther," said in a radio interview Thursday that Obama's Arizona ballot status is in question unless Hawaii responds positively to his request under a Hawaii law regarding confirmation of birth certificates.
Hawaii Department of Attorney General spokesman Josh Wisch said Monday the department has been in touch with Bennett since Friday and that he would need to provide legal authority showing his office is "a governmental agency or organization who for a legitimate government purpose maintains and needs to update official lists of persons in the ordinary course of the agency's or organization's activities."
Obama was born in Honolulu on Aug. 4, 1961. Birthers contend Obama was not born in the United States and thus not eligible to be president. The state released a copy of Obama's long-form birth certificate last year, but the release did not satisfy many birthers.
Bennett, a Republican who is reportedly considering a run for governor in Arizona, said Friday he assumes he'll get the confirmation he requested in March from Hawaii officials.
Why even have to mention it?
Just go about your official duties and obligations as an Attorney General. No need to be apologetic or exculpatory in carrying out your duly authorized actions and responsibilities as a state Attorney General.
Wonder if someone could go to where ever The Messiah got his drivers license, Illinois I would guess? Once there ask for the back up documents that were used to grant the license. That would include a copy of his birth certificate. Might take an FOI request, long shot but possible.
Did anyone ever find out how obama obtained his SS# from a state he never was in???.
These HI officials had better start looking out for themselves lest they face criminal charges. Surely some of them are intelligent enough to know his story is unraveling.
Im not sure we will ever know with certainty who Barry Obama is, but I do believe it will be proven that he’s not the man he claims to be.
Find a need and fill it. A little lumber, some steel plate, cables, and pulleys, and you're on your way!
Sell 'em on eBay.
SO far the Occupant in the WH has stonewalled proving his basic qualifications for the post for 4 years and running.
1. ignoring questions
2. ridiculing questions
3. mis-characterixing questions
4. dismissing questions
5. threatening questioners
6. attacking questioners
7. lying about himself
8. lying about other people
9. lying about the constitution
10 lying about what he does
11 spending a reported $2 million on (terrorist-defender) attorneys to block citizen efforts to ascertain his qualifications for office
12 posting a dubious (at best!) pixelated image of a purported document (which would not establish his constitutional qualifications for office, even if it were a valid image of a genuine document)
13 trying to change the subject to just about ANYTHING else, including such politically-damaging things like “gay marriage’ and forcing Christian hospitals to perform abortions. ANYTHING except producing that $10 birth certificate, ANYTHING, no matter the political damage sustained!
14 having all sorts of shills in government and the media promote the false line that he has “released his BC” when he has patently not done so, only (redacted) pixels
15 having all sorts of shills in government and the media promote the false line that he “has proven he was born in HI” when he has patently not done so (a line which itself is an evasion since it would not prove his qualification for office in the first place)
16 Gee..... why would any sane person be concerned?????
ps: my local county office supplied me with my BC for a mere $10, and they mail them out routinely (so kids can prove their qualifications for Kindergarden and Little League). But maybe the Kenya Kindergarden isn’t as strict? OK everybody, let’s all just relax and go to the back room and form a circle and join hands and say OMMMMMMMMMMMMMM! There’s nothing, nothing at all behind that curtain that we need be concerned about. Nothing. Nada. Nil. Zilch! Zippo!
If true it must mean one thing. Law enforcement still exists and is able to read and understand existing law. It is not about a person, persons a party or anything else.
Further, USC(onstitution) is the supreme law of our land. Disregarding it makes all laws irrelevant.
That's just it. He's not asking for a certified copy to examine. He is only asking for official notice that they have one and that it is legit.
I would settle for his school records. Elementary-College.
“Zullo is a volunteer, the Republic reported, but Okubo said that Mackiewicz presented a business card showing he is with the Threats Management Unit of the sheriff’s office.”
The “Threats Management Unit” carries full weight of the government. Even Okubo recognizes the seriousness.
Indonesian Go Home!
Thank you Hollywood,Unions,and all nitwit liberals for putting a foreign born enemy of the USA in the White House.
It would appear that Arpaio is executing an operation separate from the SAG.
As someone else has said, that one of the deputies was in full paid employment of the MSO, the seriousness of the request was evident.
I have to wonder whether Mankiewicz started out by saying, “We’re here too investigate a possible fraud.”?
Look for some more “surprise” resignations and retirements in HI gummint
The deceased previous owner of the SS# passed in HI. Granny lifted his number from bank records.
Yes, if they go to the correct country and city therein. He was not born in Hawaii, so the Hawaiian officials are lying and complicit in this criminality. That’s whhy they fight tooth and nail to not have to ‘releasae’ what they do not legitimately have.
I searched Article 2 Section 1 very carefully, word for word but I didn’t find “unless both parents were as well born in the United States.” Where exactly is that? Please enlighten me.
You have quantified this in an exceptionally well written post. I wonder if the Maricopa County investigators are able to articulate the case as well as you have. If they are in agreeance with you and tbey can take action based on the Hawaii investigation, then the case would seem compelling enough to warrant congressional hearings in the House. Possible impeachment before Charlotte in September? The plot thickens...
No, birthers contend barry, or whatever his name is, is not a NBC and therefore not qualified to be president. As far as where he was really born, we still have no idea.
Smells of Soros work.
