Posted on 04/24/2012 6:32:44 AM PDT by Smokeyblue
Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio finds himself under increasing attack as he prepares to release new findings in his investigation of President Obamas eligibility for the states 2012 election ballot.
I have no intention of resigning, said Arpaio, who is running for his sixth term as sheriff of Maricopa County. They forget I have a four-decades long career in federal law enforcement that includes having been a special agent for the FBI and having worked for the Drug Enforcement Agency in the United States, as well as in Argentina, Turkey and Mexico.
WND previously reported the intensity of attacks on Arpaio at both a state and national level.
Already, Arpaio has announced that his volunteer law enforcement investigation has found probable cause that Obamas long-form birth certificate and his Selective Service registration form are forgeries. Arpaio and his team made the announcement at a March 1 press conference.
A second press conference is expected in the next few weeks to announce more findings Arpaio suggests will be explosive.

STANDOFF SUSPECT HAD ‘84 GUN ARREST BY CURRENT DEMAREST CHIEF
The Record By JIM CONSOLI, Record Staff Writer
Published: October 23, 1992
The law has been something of a guardian angel for Robert Cucos.
In 1991, Demarest Police Chief James Powderley chose not to charge Cucos, now 29, after the Demarest man held the chief and a minister hostage at gunpoint.
That was not the first time that Cucos had a confrontation with police while armed.
In 1984, records show, Cucos was arrested by Powderley in Closter and charged with possession of a loaded gun. He later entered the Pretrial Intervention program, and the charge was dropped.
In his most recent encounter with the police, Cucos allegedly armed himself with three loaded guns and got involved in a standoff with Cresskill police.
He later was charged with trying to kill three officers. He is undergoing evaluation at Bergen Pines County Hospital.
Again, Powderley was directly involved: He coaxed Cucos to surrender, apparently without first consulting Cresskill police.
Powderley’s decision in 1991 not to arrest Cucos despite having arrested him in 1984 on a gun charge has raised questions for Bergen County Prosecutor John J. Fahy.
“I really would like to know why a decision was made to not charge him in 1991,” Fahy said.
When told of Powderley’s involvement in the 1984 incident, Fahy said he was not aware of it but would now review that case, too.
Fahy, who became prosecutor in 1990, has stressed that the review of the incidents involving Powderley does not constitute a formal investigation. But he has left open the possibility that such a probe could be launched if the information gathered warrants it.
Powderley declined to comment on the 1984 incident until Fahy has finished his review. But fter the Cresskill incident, Powderley criticized the court system for having let Cucos back on the streets.
In the 1991 case, Powderley allowed Cucos to seek psychiatric rehabilitation at Bergen Pines.
“Personally, I think that the court system is too lenient,” Powderley said. “This should never keep reoccurring. There should definitely be some sort of either psychiatric or criminal penalties. “ The first incident began in Orangetown, N.Y., on the night of April 6, 1984, when Cucos got into an argument with the manager of a restaurant, said Orangetown Detective Sgt. Terry Hutmacher. Cucos allegedly threatened the manager with a revolver after stating that he was Demarest Police Officer Michael Zullo and showing a phony badge, police said.
When the manager said he planned to call local police, Cucos fled.
Zullo, who now works as a private detective in North Jersey, said he was contacted at about 10:30 that night by Powderley. After realizing that Zullo wasn’t the man in the restaurant, Powderley asked Zullo to help him find the suspect.
“I remember Jimmy [Powderley] calling me and telling me to get down to headquarters immediately. It was a weekend night, and I was planning to go out,” Zullo said.
After obtaining information leading them to suspect that Cucos was involved, Powderley and Zullo started to search for Cucos in both Rockland and Bergen counties, Zullo said.
Following hours of searching, Powderley and Zullo arrested Cucos after they spotted him talking with a few other men outside a former Closter restaurant. Zullo said he searched Cucos and found a gun. The gun was found in a plastic toy holster. Cucos also had a toy police badge and handcuffs, Zullo said.
Charges of illegal possession of a weapon and receiving stolen property were filed against Cucos separately by Closter and Demarest police. But Cucos later was permitted to enter the Pretrial Intervention program.
The Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office approved of Cucos entry into pretrial intervention because of his cooperation in the case against a former River Vale maintenance worker who stole the gun from that municipality’s police evidence room and sold it to Cucos, records show.
At the time, the Bergen County prosecutor, Larry J. McClure, said police were stumped in their probe of the missing gun, one of a half-dozen stolen from River Vale. But they learned, with Cucos help, that the maintenance worker had a second key to the police evidence room and was using it to steal the weapons.
The gun Cucos obtained from the man had been confiscated in 1983 during a narcotics arrest, officials said.
Zullo said he is still upset by the actions of the Prosecutor’s Office.
“I was never contacted by the Prosecutor’s Office as the arresting officer,” he said. “Cucos was found to have a gun loaded with six rounds of ammunition in it that was stolen from River Vale police. But they let him go. “
After Cucos completed the Pretrial Intervention program, the charges against him were dropped, records show.
The River Vale worker later was indicted, but he was offered a plea agreement by the Prosecutor’s Office and received two years probation, court records show.
Cucos was charged by Orangetown police with reckless endangerment, criminal possession of a weapon, and criminal impersonation of a police officer.
Those charges also were dropped, possibly because of Cucos cooperation in the River Vale theft case, and Cucos instead was charged with being a disorderly person. Cucos pleaded guilty to the misdemeanor and was fined $200 in March 1985, records show.
“I have no idea what happened in that case,” said Hutmacher, who wasn’t involved in the arrest of Cucos.
Although the Orangetown charges were indictable offenses, a spokesman for the Rockland County District Attorney’s Office said it has no record of having reviewed the case for possible presentation to a grand jury, which the circumstances would have dictated.

What you said........in spades. Umm, I meant trump.....dang-that doesn’t sound ‘right’ either.
No evidence of threats by the Thug Administration and its allies? Really?
Try this link. Go the 4:15 in the video in the link.
Sean Egan, head of a securities company that has created trouble for the treasury and for companies taken over by this administration openly brings up being threatened with bodily harm by ‘wackos from GM’. On national TV you have documented evidence of threats against those that are ‘problems’ to this administration.
SEIU beat a man in public. The blank pathers posted threatening muscle at a voting place - no action from this administration. In fact, they seem to condone it.
There is a clear record of threatening behavior and the front man can not continue to cover.
What you said........in spades. Umm, I meant trump.....dang-that doesn’t sound ‘right’ either.
Will this get into the Obama sex change as a teenager and his connection to Mexican drug carels?
You never know. That man is a circus all by himself anyway.
Have you watched the March 1st presser Sherifdf Joe held? That the media vermin didn’t report the astonishing facts Joe explained tells us they have an agenda. Are you buying their blaise treatment as ‘falling flat? You might want to actually watch what was in the presser before dnegrating, next time.
You seem to have grasped the seriousness of the FACTS which the media scum will not report because of the implications. Barry Dunham was made an American citizen by having his birth recorded as Hawaiian while having been born ‘elsewhere’. After that, he has a Gordian Knot of identities, which include some legitimate time and legal application in Indonesia. There is a real possibility that the lying bastard sitting int he Oval Office is not even a legitimate American citizen anymore. He is however the perfect democrat ... a liar, a fraud, and a criminal at large in government.
I’m not sure what the conflict is here. It’s clear that he made an arrest so he was a police officer. That’s law enforcement, so I don’t know what the question is. Natufian, your own source confirms that Zullo has law enforcement credentials.
That also reports that he was a private detective; I’m not sure what private detectives do but I do know that Mike knows what he’s doing and he knows what kinds of evidence mean something to a court and what don’t. He’s helped me a lot, in knowing the relative value of various kinds of evidence.
Ultimately what Zullo and the others collect is presented to Arpaio, and he definitely has law enforcement credentials. So I’m just having difficulties seeing what the problem is here.
I said that “Zullo was a policeman who became a private detective and then a used car salesman for the last 20 years. He was never a police detective.”
You clearly didn’t agree with that wanted sources. I provided them. I was wrong when I said that he’d been working in the used car business for 20 years. It’s actually over 27 years.
If he’s so good at understanding process, courts and evidence, how do you think he’s going to explain selling his investigation (before it’s complete) on Amazon and giving it all to a journalist to a judge? LEO’s don’t do that.
PS No, I left the US to fly to Singapore on business. I asked you earlier but didn’t get a reply, why are you so interested in my whereabouts?
Thanks, much appreciated.
It falls flat BECAUSE of the media. Regardless......it still falls flat.
You might want to actually watch what was in the presser before dnegrating, next time.
Ummm, I DID watch, but thanks for using big boy words like denigrating. Although, you might want to actually spell it correctly before you throw it out there.
Shhh, he's using big boy words.
You apparently didn’t read that site. It’s not used car sales. It is a vehicle-buying service - knowledgeable people who check out cars for people and make sure they’re not a rip-off either mechanically or financially. My family is currently looking for a vehicle for our kids to drive. We’re definitely low end of the market so a service like this wouldn’t pay for us but the time, hassle, and uncertainty of buying a vehicle would make it worthwhile for somebody buying a new car to have these services.
Your own source showed that Zullo has law enforcement credentials as well as private detective experience. To have that he had to graduate from a Law Academy, and to be on Sheriff Joe’s posse he had to prove those credentials to Sheriff Joe. So what exactly is your issue here? The man has law enforcement credentials. And everything he comes up with has to go through Sheriff Joe, who has a lifetime of law enforcement under his belt, from a variety of settings.
Somewhere it was suggested that Zullo had inherited AZ holdings when his father died. I don’t know if that is the case or not, but after he got out of the police force he had to have some kind of income, and if he inherited it would make sense that he would go into whatever business that was. I don’t understand what your problem is.
If ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, etc had actually reported on the posse’s findings and received money for the hits to their site because of that issue, would that be Zullo “selling” his investigation? Of course, none of them did that...
Are you claiming that Zullo has published affidavits, names/details of his sources or the procedures he used, etc? Or is this stuff that is already available to the general public in audio form, but just put into written form? How different is this than a media company transcribing from the George Zimmerman police call (which the Sanford Police Dept released) and getting advertising revenue from the hits to their pages?
I was interested in your whereabouts because it had been a while since I conversed with anybody in the UK and I had forgotten the time conversions and also was curious as to how the Daylight Savings works; do you have Daylight Savings in the UK like we do here? Seems like we’re basically about 12 hours apart at this point. I just like to have a general awareness of timeframes so I get a clearer picture of what I see.
I hope your jetlag is gone. I’ve only flown a couple times and never far enough to experience jetlag. So if I seem clueless or inconsiderate in any of my posting I hope you’ll forgive me. This forum is good because with the pings a conversation doesn’t get lost even if there’s a delay in responses so hopefully nobody feels driven to respond when they need to be resting.
“I dont understand what your problem is.”
It’s pretty obvious, he can’t go after the message so he’s trying to kill the messenger.
Yep.It’s Alinsky’s answer to everything.
I agree there’s no problem here as we seem to have cleared up the issue.
You claimed that Zullo was a retired police DETECTIVE. He isn’t. He’s a retired policeman and appears to have retired over 25 years ago.
“If ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, etc had actually reported on the posses findings and received money for the hits to their site because of that issue, would that be Zullo selling his investigation? Of course, none of them did that...”
No, it wouldn’t be Zullo selling his investigation because Zullo wouldn’t be pocketing the income. Co-authoring a book with a journalist and putting it on Amazon ready to be launched at the same time as the first press conference - that’s selling the investigation.
You seem to think that an LEO selling a book about his investigation into a crime part way through the investigation is somehow normal. Can you cite a single instance were this has happened before? Can you imagine what a judge would make of that if the Sheriff actually ever brings this stuff to court?
If only for that, I’ll make one prediction here the Sheriff, Zullo and the Posse will never build a case that can make it to court. They’ve poisoned their own well.
BTW, I wasn’t in the UK when we last posted. I was in Singapore. Right now, I’m in Syracuse at my folks’ house. I will be heading to the UK next week.
Which affidavits or details are in the book that have not been made available to the public for free through the press conference or interviews since? Exactly what INFORMATION is he selling?
What exactly is the difference between a police officer and a police detective?
Do people who appear as guests on talk shows get paid for appearing?
I don’t think it’s normal for an investigator to write a book about an investigation when it’s partway through. But then I also don’t think it’s normal for media to refuse to report on it when law enforcement finds probable cause for fraud and forgery involving the records of the President of the United States.
We’ve had 2 sharia rulings - using “judge’s knowledge” rather than any evidence - to get Obama on ballots in GA and NJ.
We’ve had now-documented threats to the media.
On the day of the presser we had Breitbart keel over dead less than 5 hours after telling Arpaio he was glad he woudl be presenting his good evidence (and now the coroner’s tech who probably took the photos that alone would tell us whether it was a natural heart attack or an assassination is dead of suspected arsenic poisoning) AND a bomb scare for Rush Limbaugh.
We’ve got information that the deaths of Bill Gwatney and Stephanie Tubbs were specifically timed to silence Bill and Hillary Clinton on Obama’s ineligibility.
Clearly NOTHING about this situation is “normal”.
