Joe Arpaio Cites The Globe's "Inside" White House Sources About First Lady's "Panic" Over Sheriff's "Birther" Probe

joeglobe.jpg
Joe Arpaio: supermarket tabloids "do the best journalistic stories."
First Lady Michelle Obama apparently is in a "panic" over Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's probe into whether her husband, President Barack Obama, is a U.S. citizen -- if you believe the supermarket tabloid The Globe's "inside" White House sources, that is.

Arpaio, who applauds supermarket tabloids as having "the best journalistic stories," is running with The Globe's absurd claim, "tweeting" the following on his Twitter page this afternoon:

"In this week's Globe, inside sources in the White House stated the FLOTUS is in a panic over my investigation into Obama's legal status."

In other Globe news, Frank Sinatra "seduced two first ladies," Sarah Palin's getting divorced, and the paper apparently has solved the 30-year-old mystery of what really happened to actress Natalie Wood.

The article to which the sheriff is referring is titled "Cops Probe Identity of Obama's Real Dad."

Arpaio, as we've reported, has launched an investigation into whether Obama is a U.S. citizen eligible to be president at the request of "birther" conspiracy theorist Jerome Corsi and a local group of Tea Partiers.

We spoke with the sheriff about his probe into the continuously debunked conspiracy theory a few weeks ago. He told us Hawaiian twins and microfiche could be the key to solving the "birther" mystery once and for all. Click here for details.

In September, Arpaio was again singing the praises of supermarket tabloid journalism, telling the Arizona Republic's Dan Nowicki that tabloids like The Globe and the National Enquirer are "more accurate than anybody else. You laugh at that, but I've dealt with the National Enquirer and their stories are always right down the line, believe it or not."

Given the sheriff's affinity for tabloid journalism, we sent his office an email asking if he cared to comment on the recent breakup of Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries. We also sought comment on the Demi Moore/Ashton Kutcher divorce. We'll let you know if we hear back.

Sheriff Joe Is one In a million he Is doing a job that no one else could do.The people elected him to do a job and everyone voted for him or he would not be there. Republicns and Democrats, should want to know weather or not O,bama was born here or not, and this should have been done three years ago by both sides.This Is America we have laws no one, not even the President Is above the law..Remember Nixon Judges,Democrats& Republicns claim no one Is above the law!!!!!!! So lets get this over with, no one Is above the law...The department of Justice we all know Is after the Sheriff when the D.O.J. should have done this long ago.Then It would have been behind us,over and done.We would all want to know the truth.

Insixteen twenty-one, a big  celebration ofbarbourjacket took place at Plymouth Colony in what is now the state of Massachusetts.  European settlers known as the barbour  jackets were celebrating theirautumn harvest after a winter of struggle.

  Other colonists held earlier  ceremonies of thanks. But the Pilgrims'three-day feast is often called the nation's first barbour  outlet Thanksgiving. PresidentAbraham Lincoln declared a national holiday in eighteen sixty-three during the Civil War.

  Today families and friends  gather on the fourth Thursday in November.And, thanks to the barbour quiltedjacket United States  CensusBureau, here are some facts about where their Thanksgiving meal comes  from.

  The main dish is traditionally  a turkey. About two-thirds of the nation'sturkeys are produced in Minnesota  and five other quilted  barbour jacket states. Producersare expected to raise two hundred forty-eight million birds this year, two percent more than lastyear.

  Popular side dishes include  cranberries and sweet potatoes. Last year North Carolina barbour  sale grew more sweet potatoes thanany other state. Wisconsinis expected  to be the top cranberryproducer this year.

  People often finish the meal  with pumpkin pie. Last year Illinois grew the most pumpkins. California, New  York, Ohioand barbour ukwere  also major pumpkin producers.

  Thanksgiving is a big event,  but buying a barbour  mens traditional holiday meal canbe a struggle for the poor. So charity groups often hold food drives to collect food for barbour  ladies low-incomefamilies.

The Obama Birth Certificate is a moot question!  Matters not if he was born in the Lincoln Bedroom in the White House on August 4, 1961!  To be a 'NATURAL BORN CITIZEN" you must have TWO (2) American born citizen parents!  BHO, Sr. was NOT an American citizen!

Moreover, even if a 'midwife', who may have attended his birth and does have an authentic 'Long Form Birth Certificate' that shows he did have two (2) American born parents, the fraud and treason among other felonies COMMITTED would prohibit him from bein eligible to be POTUS!

This story is not about the messenger,  it's about the message -- Obama is not eligible to be president.   You Obamaphiles while bowing before him with arms outstretched and chanting "We're not worthy" have been made fools of by this fraud,  and you seem to enjoy it.

When the feds finally come down on Joe, he will use this as proof that it is all political retribution. And Fox will headline it.

I'd be watching my ass (literally) if I were Obama because a "Probe" by the MCSO just might have a whole different meaning than usual.

Arpaio, not with a bang but with a whimper.  Fitting that the flatulent old fool ends his career on the cover of a sensationalistic rag aimed at uneducated white trash.  The rest of the nation is waking up and realizing what we realized long ago:  Arpaio is a corrupt old fraud.

It's a good day when the only paper giving America's self-proclaimed toughest sheriff favorable coverage is the one people glance at while waiting in the supermarket checkout line. So did he tweet about the rest of the media coverage he received yesterday?

I wonder if MC's Sheriff Joke realizes that anything in those supermarket tabloids is filled with lies, bs, and more lies?

Is it wishful thinking on his part, or does he actually believe that?Why would Michelle Obama give a rat's ass about something Sheriff Joke said, did, or investigated? (after all we know he's a winner at investigating things)

Just another distraction ploy from JoKKKe AARPiehole. FYI JoKKKe no one but your Tea Bagger Turd Party groupies are falling for your BS anymore. The National spotlight will soon be shining on you & not for the reasons that you would like. .... Expect more racial profiling sweeps by the JoKKKe of Maricopa county.

Good to know Arpaio has the time to read such things as The Globe.

God knows he wouldn't want to waste any time on, you know, things like sex crimes, missing money or outstanding warrants.  Silly stuff, mostly.

Thinking back to the movie "Men In Black," where they got their news on space aliens from the now defunct "Weekly World News," I wondered where they currentlyt go for their reports. From what I've seen in the supermarket checkout line, the "Globe" looks a good replacement. Apparently Shurf Joe had to make the switch too. I wonder if he has plans to do covert "Illegal Space Alien" sweeps.

The Globe also reported that Arpaio swapped brains with a gopher, and the gopher got the short end of the deal....

"tough talking sheriff..." is the operative phrase in the headline. Sheriff Joke is all about talk and not at all about action. 400 child sex-abuse cases had no action taken while Joke was out chasing dangerous landscapers. Now he's kissing the ass of a county employee he tried to indict. Only in Arizany would folks be stupid enough to keep voting for this neanderthal who has already cost taxpayers millions in lawsuits where he or his actions were proven wrong.

I just want to know if Joe Arpaio ever hit on State Senator Lori Klein.  As you may have heard, she is not an unattractive woman.  That could be a Globe exclusive, pink gun and all.

Two peas in a pod.  He is self-described as "America's Toughest Sheriff," but specifically not "America's Best Sheriff."  She is self-described as "a not unattractive woman," but specifically not "an attractive woman."  See the similarities?  They could show each other their little pink guns.  Who knows, maybe the old geezer spent some jail funds for a laser sight for his little pink gun.

Interestingly, it appears none of those involved in this inquiry are actually 'cops', as such. The shurf is an elected county official and is NOT Arizona P.O.S.T. certified as a peace officer. Those folks who are supposedly involved in the inquiry are posse members, NOT cops by any definition.

Also, I seriously doubt if Mrs. Obama gives even a microscopic rip about some county sheriff in Arizona directly his minions to look into the birth certificate of the President.

This is just another spin factor to try to detract from the VERY bad publicity of the past few days over the uninvestigated sex crimes in El Mirage.

Of course Joe Arpaio would believe the BS inside those tabloid magazines.

Everything said in those tabloids is as fake as the "toughest sheriff" BS the MCSO shurf keeps touting. President Obama is a citizen of the U.S., per the 14th Amendment (you know, that amendment that's been around since Reconstruction (July 1868) and Joe's good buddy, disgraced, booted former state Senate President Russell Pearce, tried to re-interpret as denying automatic citizenship to anyone born in the United States.)

Where is the DOJ? Why haven't they indicted Joe Arpaio yet? When do they plan to indict the Old Fool? When will their investigations into the MCSO shurf be complete?

Not necessarily. It appears the MCSO shurf hasn't used his brain in many years, if ever. It may very well be like a 'virgin' brain... The gopher would just have to find the 'on' switch..

And the tabloids could look into whether Elvis ever hit on Lori Klein. Or if Joe hit on Elvis when he stopped him in Vegas back in the day.

I haven't checked on the National Enquirer lately, but putting it in the same category as the Globe seems to me like putting New Times into the same category as Sonoran Alliance.  Back in 2004, Jack Shafer wrote in Slate:

Almost three decades ago, the National Enquirer abandoned the traditional supermarket tabloid formula of UFOs, bizarre sex, séances, gross-outs, Loch Ness-ish monsters, cooked-up stories, and celebrity gossip for a new formula mostly devoted to celebrities. Striving for the kind of journalistic accuracy that repels libel suits, the tabloid paid many of its sources and scrupulously reported and fact-checked its pieces about Cher, Liz and Dick, Jackie O., Liza, Henry Kissinger, Burt and Loni, and the original Charlie's Angels. By the time of the 1994 Nicole Brown Simpson-Ron Goldman murders, the Enquirer truth machine had become so good that reporter David Margolick was toasting it in the New York Times for scooping the competition—and applauding it for spiking many of the false stories that appeared in mainstream media. One would think that the Enquirer's discovery of accurate journalism would have elevated its reputation. Instead, the tabloid is regarded slightly worse today than it was in 1985, according to a new survey conducted by the Pew Research Center.. . .http://www.slate.com/articles/news_an...

Mike!  You don't suppose that Joe and Elvis.............. Truly scandalous.  Keep that quiet.  If that came out, the Globe would be all over it.  The last thing Arpaio needs is more publicity.  Shhhhhh.  Was such a potential interlude the inspiration for the Rump Ranger Posse that Larry Black used to be in charge of?  I heard that that Posse got a little into the S&M sort of stuff with Larry hitting Joel in the mouth and knocking him down and Joel jumping up and running after him to get hit again.  To think, it all may have started with Elvis being pulled over on a lonely Nevada road.  Next time in Memphis, I will look at Graceland in a whole new light.

I highly doubt that you've ever had an independent thought in your sad, miserable life.

Everything I have ever stated here either agrees with something someone else has said or agrees with the article.

STFU. Troll.

Thanks Freedom, et. al.:

I feed off of just about everybody here.  The issues we discuss on here have real people, real tax dollars, and real lives damaged.  These are serious issues and they are very sad and somber issues because they should never occur in a modern and mature society.  I try to inject a little humor, sarcasm, amazement, and other characteristics as I comment on these often unbelievable and even mentally debilitating issues that we read about and post about.  I think it makes what I write a little less boring and if things are a little less boring, they get read more and if I make a point, it may be received better.

We are all in this together and I am happy to be part of the community out here in blog land.  Again, I appreciate your kind comments, but it is the entire group out here that feeds me.  I just massage it into something that I might want to read in the future.

I would submit, Gerry, that virginity in most cases, is only a temporary physiological condition, not a syndrome.

However, having someone like the MCSO shurf flying overhead in a balloon could be indeed called, as Sin Drome.
