Ariz. sheriff tries to revive Obama birth issue
Fox News/AP ^ | July 18, 2012 | Unattributed

Posted on 07/18/2012 9:42:25 AM PDT by Seizethecarp

An Arizona sheriff facing a lawsuit by Latinos who claim they were racially profiled by his department is trying to revive the old controversy over President Barack Obama's birth certificate.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio said at a news conference Tuesday that investigators working for him have concluded the document is not legitimate. Arizona's Democratic Party immediately insisted Arpaio was trying to draw attention away from problems within his own agency.

A civil trial is set to begin Thursday in a lawsuit that accuses Arpaio's office of racially profiling Latinos. The suit is a precursor to a U.S. Justice Department lawsuit that alleges a broader range of civil rights violations against Arpaio's office.

"...trying to revive"? Aprio's investigation was obviously a continuing, open investigation and the new findings of the expanded investigation were reported.

Apparently, AP's original story on the 7/17 Posse presser wasn't sufficiently exculpatory for Barry, so the Alinski-style smear that Arpaio is only trying to divert attention from his trail on racial profiling charges has been trotted out to attack Arpaio's motivation rather then actually examine the evidence of forgery. Hand-waiving by Democrats and an HI official is reported with no critical examination of the HI law allowing foreign births to be recorded as HI births with no enforcement of veracity as to those claims.

The 7/17 AP story on the presser, which was mostly straight-up news, is trending 3rd on the Fox News Politics national page despite Fox not writing their own story using their own journalists.

Arpaio needs to do his job and submit his ample evidence and proof that the Birth Cerfificate is a forgery to the District Attorney.

If not, he is failing to fulfill his the responsibility and oath of his office.

There is only one reason the RINOS won't touch this issue, if Obama goes down the cities will burn.

Our Nation is being held at gunpoint by the threat of mob violence. Too few of those now in position to act have the courage to do anything.

Sheriff Joe TRIES TO REVIVE OBAMA BIRTH ISSUE. What a BS title. Sheriff Joe has EXPOSED the Obama regime’s fraud and cover-up of the ELIGIBILITY SCAM. There is not one document the FOREIGNER has provided that does not have serious issues. SS card, Draft Card, Birth Certificate. He is giving the middle finger to the american public he despises with the full support of the socialist democrats infested in the MSM and democrat party. The charade is over and come November this issue will not be ignored any longer. Start packing your bags obama.

Ya know... this is getting no traction at all!
No network is covering this.
All of a sudden SYRIA is important!
Like anyone gives a flying rat’s outhouse about Syria.

I guess there are a few of us here that still care about the country
and haven’t been co-opted by Obumo or gone completely apathetic.
Discouraging really.

“There is only one reason the RINOS won’t touch this issue, if Obama goes down the cities will burn.”

I agree with your assessment. However, if those in DC don’t start respecting the Constitution, the cities will burn anyway.

They’re in a “no-win” situation, but don’t have the guts or, dare I say, patriotism, to just yank the bandage off and get the riots over with by upholding the Constitution. Riots or revolution are going to happen one way or another. There appears to be no other way to solve the problem.

Apparently, it's OK for AP and the Main Stream DUmbass Media for Obama to promulgate boisterous fraud when Obama waived his bogus birth certificate during last year's White House press conference.

...Obama on April 27th, 2011 - "We're not gonna be able to solve our problems if we get distracted by sideshows and carnival barkers."

Obama goes on in his last years presser,

Obama acknowledged this latest release of documents would not please everyone.

"I know that there's gonna be a segment of people for which, no matter what we put out, this issue will not be put to rest, but I'm speaking to the vast majority of the American people as well as to the press," he said. "We do not have time for this kind of silliness. We've got better stuff to do."

Silliness? Carnival barkers? Better stuff to do?

He speaks for the vast majority?


Obama speaks for the press? No doubt about that.

Moreover,

"The president said he had "watched with bemusement" and been "puzzled" by the degree to which the issue of his place of birth has continued to make headlines,..."

Obama puzzled?? BS. Obama was not "puzzled".

From Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer spoke after or during the Obama presser,

"Pfeiffer said the birth certificate handed out to the press today was the same document that every Hawaiian receives when they contact the state to request their birth certificate and the same one they take to the Department of Motor Vehicles to get their driver's license and that they take to the federal government to get their passport. "It is a legally recognized document."

Gee, how many Obama lies can you spot? There is so many.

Freeper Request:

I just shot an e-mail to Drudge on his webpage asking him to keep his headline up for another 24 hours. Please shoot one off to him. The longer it remains up (now over 12 hours), questions will start to be raised.

It’s been replaced by “Canadians now richer than Americans”

Drudge however, “It’s A Fake” is still prominently displayed in the top right hand corner of his page.

The only solution the government types will see is to put chains on everyone, they will not take sides.

They will do what it takes to preserve their power.

It’s obvious that no one is watching Arpiao’s team present the evidence, they just dismiss it unseen.

If you are posting here and have not yet posted a demand with your House Rep. and Senators demanding that they investigate Arpaio’s evidence and enforce the Constitution’s Presidential eligibility requirements - HANG UP AND DRIVE!

It is totally off the page now. Yet he has stories that have been up there for over 4 days. I am totally disgusted by the media and especially the “conservative” media. I don’t get Limbaugh here, but was watching the thread for the first hour. They were saying all he talked about was the Batman movie. Did he ever mention the Arpaio conference ? He can’t claim ignorance on it since it was on Drudges headline and he checks that page every day before his show.

Rush did see the Drudge page or part of the Arpaio presser while doing show prep. Rush said something to Snerdley about letting it percolate some more...I think.
