Sheriff Joe Arpaio Says Obama Birth Certificate Forged ... and Orly Taitz Couldn't Be Happier

Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for arpaio-coe-hunt.jpg
Maricopa County, Arizona's controversial Sheriff Joe Arpaio--who has previously energized immigrant basher Barbara Coe--is now getting the hero treatment from another Orange County wingnut, Orly Taitz.

All he had to do was hold a press conference today announcing President Barack Obama's birth certificate and Selective Service cards are forgeries.

Forged!
Arpaio, the target of ongoing federal investigations into alleged civil rights violations, said a six-month probe by his own "Cold Case Posse" found that "probable cause exists indicating that forgery and fraud may have been committed" in the release of the president's long-form birth certificate.

The posse surmises the date stamp and the registrar's stamp on the birth certificate were imported from somewhere else because they were on different layers on the document and could be moved freely when opened in editing software. Arpaio's investigators also found the 1980 postmark had been tampered with on the Selective Service card.

"Based on all of the evidence, I cannot in good faith report to you these documents are authentic," Arpaio said at a Phoenix press conference, adding his posse believes "that the long form birth certificate was manufactured electronically and that it did not originate in the paper format as presented by the White House."

Happy Taitz
"America's Toughest Sheriff" stressed that he is not going after Obama nor accusing the Commander-in-Chief of a crime.

That's what Orly's for.

""Arpaio confirms the evidence that I, as the only attorney, submitted to courts, elections boards and Arpaio himself-there is a probable cause to believe, that Obama's BC is a forgery," the Laguna Niguel attorney/dentist/real estate saleswoman writes on OrlyTaitzEsq.com.

However, the "Queen of the Birthers" adds that she is reserving comment until she reads all of Arpaio's report because, "I have been burned before."

Taitz issued the following all-caps plea:

I NEED HELP OF AZ SUPPORTERS TO GET 50 CERTIFIED COPIES OF ARPAIO'S REPORT. ABOUT 5 COPIES I NEED ASAP

She explains elsewhere on her site that time is of the essence because she believes Arpaio's report might be the evidence she needs to knock Obama off the Indiana ballot.

Fox News commentators may be quick to label CBS News as being part of the "lamestream media," but the fairness balancers were quick to post the Tiffany Network's video of the press conference on Fox Nation:



Rick Santorum has apparently met with Arpaio to go over the findings.

 Washington has taken control of the media to prevent the truth from leaking out about the coup, cover up, and police state dictatorship. Obama is only acting as the president.

Mitt Romney’s Mexican father, hmmmmm…….Are the simple minded “BIRTHERS”, going to ask Romney for his birth certificate? We all know this was never about a birth certificate, if it was then these same people would be asking Romney for his. It’s about small minded people who hate African Americans and do not have the brains to review a President’s policy so they make something up.

Lets be clear none of these dullards have won a case in the “U.S. Courts”, maybe in their simple minds (if they have any) but not in our “U.S. Courts”, so unless Birthers/ teabaggers, whatever you want to be called, win a court case, we will continue to see as dullards, liars or racist or maybe all three. Deal with that baby!

Why would the only law enforcement officer in this entire country who is a local sheriff in the state of Arizona who harbors anti-immigrant feelings and is himself under investigation into alleged civil rights violations be the only one, after previous exhaustive searches by others, to find that Obama's birth certificate and selective service card are possible frauds?

It's not rocket science folks.

I had no idea that Joe Arpaio was an expert on scanning software and document formats.

He's not? Oh well, never mind.

As Sheriff Joe Arpaio well knows, it is against Federal and State privacy Acts to disclose "investigative" material outside of law enforcement.  It won't be long before this Sheriff is relieved of his duties.  He has no ability to lodge any charges against Obama because even assuming the birth certificate or selective service card were 'somehow' altered; as long as it has not been used for an improper purpose that would otherwise violate State law there's simply no jurisdiction over the matter. Nor has a crime been committed, nor do they have evidence that Obama committed any crime whatsoever. The fact of the matter is if the Birth Certificate is not what it purports to be then perhaps the records in Hawaii are altered as well including the Selective Service records. I am sure the FBI conducted a thorough background investigation before Obama took office and if there were any questions about the issues people continue to discuss it would have been addressed at that level. Obvious there are no issues because Obama is still sitting President as he should be.

One other point is that this Sheriff risk criminal charges himself if he should violate the Privacy laws regarding disclosure of any purported law enforcement investigation pertaining to an alleged investigation regarding Obama or any other matters arising out of the birth certificate or selective service form. The Department of Justice will grab him by his nut-sacs and squeeze the shit outta' of them...LmAo...

It seems the deranged Leon McClure has been persuaded! 

Realizing that The Donald invested many thousands to get the goods on Mr Obama, and came up with nothing, Leon has agreed that there is nothing to the whole Birther crusade.

Otherwise, The Donald would have told us. He's not one to hide his lamp under a bushel.

Nor Leon, for that matter.

Well done, boy!

Reiterated from below:

The Constitution does not define the phrase natural-born citizen, and various opinions have been offered over time regarding its precise meaning. The Congressional Research Service has stated that the weight of scholarly legal and historical opinion indicates that the term means one who is entitled under the Constitution or laws of the United States to U.S. citizenship "at birth" or "by birth," including any child born "in" the United States, even to alien parents (other than to foreign diplomats serving their country), the children of United States citizens born abroad, and those born abroad of one citizen parent who has met U.S. residency requirements.The Naturalization Act of 1790 stated that "the children of citizens of the United States that may be born beyond sea, or out of the limits of the United States, shall be considered as natural born citizens"Statute by parentageIf one parent is a U.S. citizen and the other parent is not, the child is a citizen ifthe U.S. citizen parent has been "physically present" in the U.S. before the child's birth for a total period of at least five years, andat least two of those five years were after the U.S. citizen parent's fourteenth birthdayIn Wong Kim Ark the Supreme Court held that under the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, a man born within the United States to foreigners (in that case, Chinese citizens) who have a permanent domicile and residence in the United States and are carrying on business in the United States[23] and who were not employed in a diplomatic or other official capacity by a foreign power, was a citizen of the United States

Did anybody out there consider that maybe, just maybe, he had to prove his birth in America before he was eligible to run for the highest office in the land? I'm guessing that his birth certificate and all other requirements were scrutinized by the Secret Service, et al. This is another red herring by racists who still can't handle the fact that our President is half black. GET OVER IT & get ready to vote from your cast of clowns. Good Luck!

The crackpot Birthers are trying to support two mutually exclusive theories.

1. They want us to believe that Obama is a cunning tyrant, a devious agent of Islam who controls the CIA, FBI, and FEMA and commands them to do his fiendishly clever bidding; and,

2.  He is a hopeless idiot who steals multiple SSNs (never explaining why he needed more than one) and faked his own birth certificate with all the skill of a nine-year old.

CONSIDER:  why would the best black ops people in the federal government produce something as amateur as the crackpots claim?

This obvious contradiction is just one of many.

No wonder even The Donald huffed and puffed last April, and then gave up. He released nothing because he found nothing. And Orly Taitz, America's worst attorney, continues to lose EVERY court case she brings. 

It's more fun when the Birthers talk about Atlantis, Bigfoot, and space aliens. And a lot more plausible.

This sad effort by Sheriff Arpaio has been handled as badly as the 400 botched sex crime investigations for which he has apologized.

This Sheriff, engaged in a perpetual re-election campaign, has made a crippling mistake. He has associated himself with the most laughable cult in America -- the Birthers. They rank up there with Scientology, the Lost Continent of Mu, and the Westboro Baptist Church.

CONSIDER:  in April of last year, publicity-hound Donald Trump announced that he was sending his "investigators" to Hawaii. "They're gonna get the truth about Obama," he said.

Then, he advised that his "investigators" were hard at work. "You're not gonna believe what they're finding!" He described their investigation as "explosive", and promised that he would immediately release all of their documents and "findings". [SOURCE: http://thepage.time.com/2011/0...]

It is now ELEVEN MONTHS later. Nothing has been released by The Donald. Zero. Zip. Nada.

Not one "explosion" has been heard. The Donald has moved on to endorsing Mr Romney, and no longer talks about the Birthers.

So what happened to his "explosive evidence"? It blew up in his face. He released nothing --  because he found nothing.

Sheriff Arpaio's unpaid vigilantes have suffered the same fate as The Donald's "investigation" from April of LAST YEAR. Who can be surprised?

Only the Birther loons -- and you know who you are -- persist in their obsession. Even Trump gave up, and he's pretty crazy too.

Why won't this lousy BIRTHER issue just DIE& go away? It wont go away  becauseit's TRUE- Birthers are smeared as kooks & RACISTS- but in fact 17 topForensic Documenrt specialist (used in court to verify documents) have alldeclared the (ADOBE-PDF) birth certificate Obama released on April 27th to be ablatant FORGERY- GOOGLE "MARA ZEBEST" (who has written dozens ofADOBE software books) Hear her stake her reputation that the birth certificateis an absolute FORGERY (a cut & paste composit that was created on acomputer) Bottom line is "OBAMA is a FRAUD who has deceived America"Have you ever read one word about MARA or any other specialist or lawsuit inthe newspaper? (of course you haven't) Have you ever wondered why? More than 20lawsuits have been secretly dismissed in court about Obama’s birth certificate& multiple SSN's used in real estate scams- recently (in the 9th circuitcourt) Judge Lamberth dismissed the lawsuit against his multiple SSN's saying"Obama probably obtained the SSN's illegally but his right to privacytrumps all" This means that Obama does not have to obey the same laws thatyou & I do- He is above the law- and 2 months ago in Georgia a defaultjudgment went against Obama to disallow him on the 2012 ballot in Georgia- butit was later reversed because of behind the scenes politics- and a week later a5+ billion dollar contract to build a nuclear power plant was granted toGeorgia by the government-

Short videos on why the Cold case Posse determined the Obama long form birth certificate and his Selective Service registration card are forgeries- a person of interest has been identified and he should turn himself in, before he has an unscheduled heart attack. I wonder who removed all the INS records of foreign travel arrivals in the National archives for the 1st week of August, 1961?  What country did Ann Dunham visit ?   The Cold Case sure wanted to look at those records- to clear Obama, but now they can't say for a certainty that Obama wasn't born overseas. Is that why Obama said on July 15th last summer- "In a week I'll be turning 50"?- and he slipped up and told us he was really born around July 22nd- and I'll bet it wasn't in Hawaii.

You have identified a key problem with the Arpaio press conference. There was very little that could be independently verified.   The testimony of "forensic document examiners" is not of much use when we don't know who they were, what their qualifications are, and what they actually said. Given that this was essentially a WorldNetDaily production with investigations by WorldNetDaily reporter Jerome Corsi and a report written by WorldNetDatily contributor Mara Zebest, we might come to the reasonable conclusion that we're looking at Internet tabloid standards of evidence, not law-enforcement standards. I should note that the only credentialed forensic document examiner to look at Obama's long form was Ivan Zatkovich, and he said that the White House document was consistent with an authentic document that was sharpened up. Another widely-recognized graphics expert, Neil Krawetz also said that there wasn't anyting suggestive of fraud.  In fact, the entire birth certificate graphic analysis from Mara Zebest was old stuff from the pages of WorldNetDaily and further, it had been completely debunked by John Woodman in his book, Is Barack Obama's Birth Certificate a Fraud? Woodman volunteered to help the Cold Case Posse when it started, and they refused. That alone speaks volumes about the fact that this was not an investigation but a set up.  Mike Zullo said that they had "evidence" and "proof" that the Hawaiian birth registry listing Obama has foreign born children in it. Given that the law permitting children born out of state (to in-state parents) be registered wasn't passed until 20 years after Obama was born, this claim is highly suspect. Again, what is the evidence, and frankly why should we believe Mark Zullo and his band of birthers over President Obama and two Directors (one Republican and one Democrat) of the Hawaii Department of Health who have inspected the original document? Finally the thing that Obama's Selective Service application is a fake, not mentioning the fact that the document they doubted was obtained from the Selective Service under the Freedom of Information Act WHILE GEORGE W. BUSH WAS PRESIDENT. You may think that Joe Arpaio is a "lawman of impeccable character." I do not, and I point you to the fact that one day after the Press Conference, WorldNetDaily published a book on the investigation with a introduction written Sheriff Joe himself.

My initial reaction was anger to see conspiracy theories presented under the cover of authority. That Arizona press conference was nothing less than an assault on rational thinking.  It would have been the same if Arpaio had announced that the CIA killed JFK, George Bush blew up the World Trade Center or that the moon landing never happened.

The media have it right about Sheriff Joe: these are long-debunked claims. While no one outside the birther movement is going to fall for this, it does energize the birthers, who have now dusted off all of their other long-debunked claims and started posting them all over the Internet. It's gonna be another season of insufferable birthers, just like back when Donald Trump was doing his birth certificate thing.

Dear Readers,

In my years as a political activist it has become clear that propaganda is conducted by both sides of those vying for dominance over a particular issue.

While Sheriff Arpaio, in my opinion, is a lawman of impeccable character and integrity, I would like to see more "substantive evidence" that President Obama's birth certificate is a forgery. 

Mere suspicion is as common as the air we breathe.  I vividly remember when I was FALSELY accused of fraud and embezzlement and how such malicious rumors erroneously became "truth" in the minds of those delusional souls who wanted the falsehoods to be true. 

Until there is irrefutable proof that Obam's birth certificate is a fraud, and until Obama is actually prosecuted and convicted of such forgery, I remain skeptical of the veracity of the Sheriff's cold case findings.  Give me more evidence, please.

I am curious how an Arizona Hick Sheriff happened to get a hold of the original Birth certificate for expert examination? and how his "Cold Case Posse" had any authority... Isn't a posse a group of un-sworn, untrained citizens temporarily deputized to catch fleeing criminals?

This is so tiring. Obama's mother was a natural US citizen. He could've been born anywhere in the universe and because his mother is a US citizen he automatically gets US Citizenship. That is the law.and why o why are we listening to some looney woman who herself isn't even a US citizen?

He is a perfect example of what is wrong with the United States. This jackbooted jackass needs to be put out to pasture, or at the very least be subjected to the same actions he and his deputies have perpetuated against the public.

Does the Democratic Party have these kooks on the payroll?

Every time a birther goes to bat, Mr Obama gains 1000 votes. 

CONSIDER:  if there were anything to this nonsense, Hillary Clinton would have used it, 4 years ago. Do you doubt her ambition? John McCain would have used it, 4 years ago. 

CONSIDER:  America's worst attorney, Orly Taitz Esq, has lost EVERY court case she has attempted to bring in this matter, and has been fined $20,000 for professional misconduct. Just 2 years ago, she was peddling fake 'Kenyan' birth certificates. Now, this rubbish.

CONSIDER:  Last April, The Donald Trump announced to great fanfare that he was sending his "investigators" to Hawaii. He claimed that "you're not gonna believe what they're finding". Then, "it's explosive!" Since?  Silence. Nothing. Zero.

Not one explosion. 

If the egomanic Trump had actually "found something", would he have kept quiet? Or would he be all over the media in his insatiable desire for publicity? Trump has said nothing for a reason. He found nothing.

CONSIDER:  Sheriff Arpaio admits botching over FOUR HUNDRED sex crimes. Do you think he's trying to distract us?

Birthers are laughingstocks, first to last.

The lying liberal media has tried to smear Arpaio - but true Americans listen to that crap.

NOW - contact your Congressman and Senator and tell them that if they don't begin the process of arresting and jailing Obama - that they are guilty of a felony themselves:

Misprision of a Felony

Whoever, having knowledgeof the actual commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the UnitedStates, conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to somejudge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States,shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, orboth.

(Oh and BTW...for all you doubters...here's another verification - from an independent expert who today, pulled the b.c. from the WhiteHouse.gov website and verified that it was a FRAUDULENT document: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...

Let the JAILING BEGIN@@@@!!!!!!!

Those who do not live in Arizona have no idea what good this man has done for Maricopa county. There are many who "think" they know what is going on here in Arizona and how this man really is, but all they do is read the paper and believe whatever biased news stories they see on TV. If you all actually take the time to read the report and look things up yourself instead of having someone else tell you how it is, you will find that the birth certificate is indeed a fake. Don't take my word for it, read it for yourself.
