  • The Post&Email News Site Contacts House Oversight Committee on Obama Birth Certificate Fraud

    (Feb. 13, 2019) — Last week, while referencing the House Committee on Oversight and Reform, formerly the Oversight & Government Reform Committee, The Post & Email noted that Chairman Elijah Cummings has invited the public to submit tips on “waste, fraud and abuse of taxpayer dollars.” On Wednesday, we sent the following regarding the reported “computer-generated forgery” evidenced by a “long-form” birth certificate image posted on the White House website on April 27, 2011 after much public pressure from then-businessman and real estate mogul Donald Trump. To the public’s knowledge, neither the FBI nor Congress has launched an investigation into...

    15:50: Aside from there never being a birth certificate at Kapiolani Medical Center...and I will never reveal the sources, however they are top intelligence people in two different branches of intelligence...it has been an open secret that Obama could never satisfy the constitutional requirement of being born on American soil. Now in our investigation we were not tasked with determining that. We were looking for evidence of a fraudulent document and perhaps the reason behind it, but the mission was never to find where he was or was not born. However, that's the open secret. Now that's the open secret...

    Zullo: 52:40 The president demanded that the DOJ open up an investigation . That must have unnerved people that deal with this birth certificate issue because all of a sudden my email inbox started to blow up. I got emails from the Italian corporation that did the analysis for us that people were engaging then challenging the finding, trying to get the work product, the professional report that we have not released yet, get copies, people making contact with me challenging our finding and trying to make arrangements to meet with me was most incredible. They hit me with information...

    Dissenting judge on panel worries ruling could foster ‘inappropriate… political attacks’ on presidencyA federal appeals court said this week it will appoint a lawyer to argue that former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s contempt of court conviction should remain on his record despite President Trump’s pardon. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said that since the federal Justice Department is supporting both the pardon and Mr. Arpaio’s request to have his conviction stricken, someone else needs to argue the other side. Mr. Arpaio argues that the pardon came before he had a chance to appeal his conviction, and even before...

    “The president brought up former President Obama, your former boss,” Tapper posed to Psaki. “He blamed him for, quote, ‘basically creating no border.'” “I didn’t even understand what he was talking higher than,” he continued. “He was talking about his poll numbers in Rasmussen, ‘higher than Cheatin’ Obama at the same time in his Administration.'” “I don’t know exactly what he’s referring to with the Cheatin,” Tapper added. “It’s an interesting thing to bring up during the Stormy Daniels saga, certainly. What’s your response?” “Well given Trump’s history, you can also guess that he might — there might be racial...

    President Trump said Monday that it was “un-American” and “treasonous” when some congressional Democrats did not applaud during last week's State of the Union address as he touted the low rates of black and Hispanic unemployment. -- Obama used the word “treason” only twice during his eight years in office. Not coincidentally, he was discussing the rise of Trump both times. As the Republican primaries raged on in March 2016 and the establishment tried to block Trump from securing the nomination, Obama said during a fundraiser in Austin that their party wouldn’t be in that position if elected Republicans had...

    Washington Examiner ^ | January 9, 2018 | David M. Drucker
    Republican Joe Arpaio, a close ally of President Trump and former sheriff known for his provocative approach to combatting illegal immigration, is running for Senate in Arizona. The 85-year-old Arpaio could shake up the late August Republican primary in a critical open-seat race to replace retiring Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz. Trump pardoned Arpaio last summer, sparing the former sheriff jail time after he was convicted of ignoring a federal court order in a racial-profiling case. The polarizing yet iconic former Maricopa County sheriff, beloved by many conservatives for his hawkish immigration policies, presents an alternative to the unimpressive Kelli Ward...

    President Donald Trump questioned the politics of his decision to finally acknowledge former President Barack Obama was born in the US, which he did late during the campaign in 2016, according to a source close to the White House. The source said that shortly after he made the statement, Trump told aides that he would have done better in the polls had he continued to stand his ground on the birth certificate issue. Trump has continued to question the legitimacy of Obama's birth certificate during private conversations in recent months, The New York Times reported Tuesday, citing advisers who discussed...

    After President Trump’s pardon of ex-sheriff Joe Arpaio, who had been convicted of criminal contempt for violating a court order designed to stop the violation of the constitutional rights of suspected illegal immigrants, conventional wisdom — and certainly the Trump administration — would have us believe that Trump’s pardon powers are unlimited. However, never before has someone stretched the pardon power so beyond its original intent. Trump has now drawn scrutiny not simply from critics of his racist rhetoric but from the court itself. The Arizona Republic Reports: U.S. District Court Judge Susan Bolton canceled former Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s upcoming...

    As Joseph Arpaio’s federal case headed toward trial this past spring, President Trump wanted to act to help the former Arizona county sheriff who had become a campaign-trail companion and a partner in their crusade against illegal immigration. The president asked Attorney General Jeff Sessions whether it would be possible for the government to drop the criminal case against Arpaio, but was advised that would be inappropriate, according to three people with knowledge of the conversation. After talking with Sessions, Trump decided to let the case go to trial, and if Arpaio was convicted, he could grant clemency. Trump and...

    Evan Siegfried is the sort of Republican MSNBC prefers as panelists: One who supported Hillary Clinton, and later Evan McMullin, and is happy to condemn President Trump. Appearing on today’s AM Joy, Siegfried went beyond mere condemnation to predict Trump would stage an event to exploit politically. Discussing the Arpaio pardon, Siegfried said: “Heck: I partially believe Donald Trump will take a play, a page out of Sheriff Arpaio’s playbook and fake something. Remember Sheriff Arpaio faked an assassination attempt against himself and tried to frame an ex-con for it?” View the video here.

    Last month, as President Trump made broad claims about his power to pardon, I noted that he “may find out that something can be both legal and, simultaneously, an impeachable offense.” Last night, as the president issued a pardon to former Maricopa County, Ariz., sheriff Joe Arpaio, who was convicted of criminal contempt of court, some commentators argued that this was exactly the case. Harvard Law professor Noah Feldman, for example, wrote after Trump’s belligerent Phoenix rally speech that such a pardon would represent an “assault on the federal judiciary, the Constitution and the rule of law itself” for which...

    Former Sheriff Joe Arpaio asked late Monday for his contempt of court conviction to be tossed or to get a new trial, saying the judge misread the history of the case, that it amounted to double-jeopardy, and that his trial should have been in front of a jury anyway. In two new filings in federal district court in Arizona, Arpaio’s lawyers offered up a number of reasons why the misdemeanor conviction should be tossed. The filings came after President Trump said over the weekend that he is “seriously considering” granting a pardon to Arpaio, an early supporter of his presidential...

    EXCLUSIVE: President Trump may soon issue a pardon for Joe Arpaio, the colorful former Arizona sheriff who was found guilty two weeks ago of criminal contempt for defying a state judge’s order to stop traffic patrols targeting suspected undocumented immigrants. In his final years as Maricopa County sheriff, Arpaio had emerged as a leading opponent of illegal immigration. “I am seriously considering a pardon for Sheriff Arpaio,” the president said Sunday, during a conversation with Fox News at his club in Bedminster, N.J. “He has done a lot in the fight against illegal immigration. He’s a great American patriot and...

    The outdoor jail that was Mr. Arpaio’s marquee undertaking was a travesty. Ostensibly established to save money and deter criminals, who presumably would want to avoid sweltering in desert heat, it failed on both counts. In fact, closing the encampment will save taxpayers some $4.5 million annually. And in a recent study, the inmates there said they preferred the facility, the heat notwithstanding, to the cramped cells in conventional jails. In announcing that the encampment would be closed, after 24 years, Mr. Arpaio’s successor, Paul Penzone, a Democrat, said, “Starting today, the circus ends, and the tents come down.” Mr....

As with the Associated Press and other mainstream outlets, Baier did not provide any information from the final presser on December 15 revealing that two document examiners from two different disciplines arrived at the same conclusion: that the anomalies found in the Obama birth certificate image which exactly replicate nine items from a long-form birth certificate belonging to a woman born in...

STONE: Well there are many people who are far more knowledgeable than I am about the internet and about the computerized graphics who have a belief that the document that was produced is not real. I don’t know. I’m not an expert on this. I also don’t really care in the sense that Obama’s presidency is essentially over. We’re not running against Barack Obama, at least not directly. Trump is running against four more years of Obama perhaps but Hillary Clinton...

    Sheriff Joe Arpaio and a Double Standard of Justice The ACLU’s and DOJ’s war on a brave patriot. August 31, 2016 John Perazzo    Joe Arpaio has been the sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona, which includes the city of Phoenix and is near the Mexican border, for 23 years. He is up for re-election this year and has just emerged victorious in a challenging primary against three rivals. In the general election for sheriff, however, polling data indicate that he would be trailing Democrat opponent Paul Penzone by several percentage points. Arpaio's foundering poll numbers are due, in large measure, to...

    Recently released excerpts of depositions of Joe Arpaio's former attorney, Tim Casey, and others in the sheriff's ongoing contempt case point to possible perjury by Arpaio and his chief deputy, Jerry Sheridan, during their April testimony in federal court. In a September 16 deposition of Casey, Arpaio's former counsel on the underlying case, Melendres v. Arpaio, the lawyer describes an unusual meeting at the Sheriff's Office that occurred in late 2013 or early 2014 involving Arpaio and various lawyers... Casey said the purpose of the meeting was to "evaluate how credible [Dennis Montgomery] was." "I remember the lawyers talking," he...
