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...

Notice how the ASSociated Obama Press starts the article in the first paragraph that has nothing to do with the issue.

Yes, I believe it was in January. Arpaio even told the press at his press conference.

Funny, too - I scoured that “news article” for any mention of even one piece of actual EVIDENCE that was presented today, and could not find one mention of actual evidence.

I don’t think the author was even at the press conference, or at least there is nothing to prove otherwise. The article itself could have been written 2 months ago.

And this passes for journalism? I’d call it urinalism: pee on the targeted people as commanded.

Time for the rest of us to flush it to where it belongs though.

computer-generated forgery

if Joe says it's a forgery, I believe him 100%, 'specially considering how many males from Kenya named 'obama' are being discovered floating around our country lately. (ref: the obama files)

Video: MCSO: Preliminary Findings on Obama Birth Certificate

This is the principle preliminary finding of a six-month on-going Sheriff's Cold Case Posse law enforcement investigation into the authenticity of Obama's birth certificate and his eligibility to be president.

Investigators advised Sheriff Arpaio that the forgers committed two crimes: first, in creating a fraudulent document which the White House characterized, knowingly or unknowingly, as an officially produced governmental birth record; and second, in fraudulently presenting that document to the residents of Maricopa County and to the American public at large as "proof positive" of President Obama's authentic 1961 Hawaii long-form birth certificate.

A copy of the full press release from the MCSO is available at this link:

Typical AP -- starts off by denigrating the messenger...

In fact,

"At a news conference, Arpaio said the probe revealed that there was probable cause to believe Obama's long-form birth certificate released by the White House in April is a computer-generated forgery. He also said the selective service card completed by Obama in 1980 in Hawaii also was most likely a forgery."

is all the "reporting" they do -- the rest is attacks on Arpaio...

Over the last year, the number of excuses over the BC have grown ever wilder. That’s no shock really and I expect them ‘to get worse. Here’s the real problem...

In that time, we have gone from mere speculation for all involved, to having cases presented in court (which resulted in even more illegalities rearing their heads) to today, when one of the most hardcore Os in America has determined that the documents presented as official by a sitting President are fraudulent and that LEO, an officer in good standing, provided tested and verified proof of a caliber strong enough to call for a congressional investigation, among others.

Arpaio’s conference today should be a watershed event. Any person, here or elsewhere, now claiming that ‘Birthers’ are deluded, idiots, etc” should really be questioned extensively as to their motives and belief in our Constitution and rule of law. While we may not get Obama impeached/arrested etc. before the elections, this HAS to be brought to light, investigated, tried and settled. One way or the other in a court of law. If not, then I fail to see how we differ from a third world country and would love to hear anyone explain otherwise publicly.

Had Arpaio made this revelation about John Q. Public, people would accept the presented evidence as a fact and demand trail. Why then do people supposedly against the Obama regime want such info disregarded?

1+1=2, regardless of flowery language, indignation and excuses.

I am sure that you misunderstood Butterdezillion’s post, she meant that despite all the evidence presented today, the AP article mentioned none of it. The AP just worked on smearing Sheriff Joe. Butterdezillion is one of my biggest heros here on Freerepublic. Through her tireless work, she was first to discover a lot of what the big names try to take credit for. She has been doing the nitty gritty detail work exposing Obama for years.

A congressional document posted on the Internet confirms no one – not Congress, not the states and not election officials – bothered to check Barack Obama’s eligibility to be president, and that status remains undocumented to this day.

The second full paragraph of the CRS memo must be read in its entirety to understand fully the circumstance that allowed a candidate for whom documentation was concealed from the public to be elected and sworn in as president.

It states:

“Concerning the production or release of an original birth certificate, it should be noted that there is no federal law, regulation, rule, guideline, or requirement that a candidate for federal office produce his or her original birth certificate, or a certified copy of the record of live birth, to any official of the United States government; nor is there a requirement for federal candidates to publicly release such personal record or documentation. Furthermore, there is no specific federal agency or office that ‘vets’ candidates for federal office as to qualifications or eligibility prior to return.”

What the CRS admits is that Obama got a pass from Congress and the federal government as a whole on his birth qualifications under Article 2, Section 1. Nobody in Congress or the federal government sought to look for Obama’s certified long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate, because no law or regulation required them to look.

” - - - exposing yourself as a total dumb@$$... - - - “

You are EXACTLY correct. I read the thread’s article only, and foolishly did not read the article from the hotlink provided by TigersEye in comment # 10.

This has been an indelible lesson for me to read ALL of the hotlinks BEFORE I expose myself to be “ - - - a total dumb@$$... “ AGAIN.

Hence, I extend to you and all of the FReepers AND Lurkers my abject apologies, and promise to read ALL of the hotlinks before I post a comment.

Sincerely,
Graewoulf.

That’s interesting regarding the CSO memo. Alright, now I’ve watched the MCSO video and have questions:

Are there other types of optimization or optical xx software that MCSO hasn’t tested ?

If it is forged, this would be a large scale conspiracy. While the president doesn’t HAVE to provide a document, he would have falsely used document stamps from the State of Hawaii. It’s not that I dont believe in conspiracies with this crew, I just question so many people being able to keep their mouths shut.

madame:”While the president doesn’t HAVE to provide a document, he would have falsely used document stamps from the State of Hawaii”

Unless he had Hawaii provide the document for him. Hawaii has been less than forthcoming in this entire investigation and appears to be complicit in this issue. I am guessing that Hawaii is the source of this botched forgery and they have been doing all they can to be sure that any information that is in their possession is kept under wraps. Although at this point, I don’t think they have an orginal LFBC for Obama on file. It would be extremely easy for them to produce if it were...
