Joe Arpaio Really Thinks President Obama's Birth Certificate is Fake

birther-press-release.jpg
An actual press release from the sheriff's office, from March 1, 2012, saying "Arpaio suspects forgery" of Obama's birth certificate.
There you have it -- Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio actually thinks the President of the United States got into the White House using a forged birth certificate.

Yes, the year is 2012, and yes, New Times and several dozen other media outlets just listened to more than two hours of a "birther" conspiracy theory facilitated by Joe Arpaio.

Not only is the president's birth certificate a forgery, Arpaio explained, but his Selective Service card is also a fake, and his real immigration records have been hidden or destroyed as part of this conspiracy.

"A six-month-long investigation conducted by my Cold Case Posse had led me to believe, there is probable cause to believe, that President Barack Obama's long-form birth certificate released by the White House on April, 27, 2011, is a computer-generated forgery," Arpaio said at a press conference this afternoon. "I do not believe that it is a scan of an original 1961 paper document, as represented by the White House when the long-form birth certificate was made public."

Of course, Arpaio brought the "birther" gang along with him, including king "birther" Jerome Corsi, State Representative Carl Seel, and Cold Case Posse leader Mike Zullo, as well as a unicorn, six leprechauns, Bigfoot, a gang of space aliens, and one chupacabra featured on the homepage of KPHO.

Zullo showed off some homemade videos for about 20 minutes, explaining the "Photoshop" job done on the birth certificate -- which is old news for the "birther" crowd.

The Selective Service card is a fraud because of a postal stamp, according to Zullo, and when the "investigators" went to hunt for Immigration and Naturalization Service records, the entire week of Obama's birth was missing.

Corsi also blabbed the "birther" speak for a few minutes, saying one of the solid pieces of proof he has involves the mother of Bill Ayers introducing "a retired government employee" to Obama.

Corsi says that Ayers' mother introduced Obama as a "foreign student," and this government employee is willing to go on the record about it.

Now, Arpaio says this is just the tip of the iceberg for the "criminal investigation" into the forged documents.

There's a "person of interest" in the forgeries, but that name hasn't been released.

Arpaio made it very clear, multiple times, that he is "not accusing the sitting President of the United States of committing a crime."

He's just saying that there's a man in the White House who was elected president, and that gentleman has falsely portrayed himself as an American-born citizen by using several false federal documents to con his way into 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Arpaio's calling for a "bi-partisan congressional investigation" into the matter, and claimed, "I don't need this for politics, I guarantee you."

I wonder how much the Obamian political machine paid for this garbage. Instead of looking at the facts the idiot authors would rather play childhood dozens. This is awesome as far as brainwashing to not look at facts are concerned though. Fine work.

Thanks to Arpaio I couldn't stop thinking about Obama and his birth certificate... so I went to Obama's website and bought the cup with his photo and birth certificate on it - only $20 to help Obama's campaign.  Then I went to Citizens for a Better Arizona and donated, they don't have a cup but they did a great job with the Arpaio video so I know the money is going to good use.

Anybody who believes Joe Arpaio's bullshit needs to return to the mental institution from which they escaped and ask to have their medication dosage increased substantially.

All this is is yet another distraction from the Bald Bunion of Pinal County, who abuses little children and his ex-boyfriends, the big racial-profiling lawsuit filed against the Old Fool, and the DOJ civil investigation, with the criminal investigation ongoing.

Didn't President Obama already resolve this issue?

"Mike Zullo, a retired detective and volunteer Maricopa County Sheriff Posse member, is listed as the co-author of "A Question of Eligibility," an e-book" (and DVD) "for sale on Amazon and Barnes and Noble. The book is a copy of the investigation findings presented to the press on Thursday."

"It's what I do. I'm a writer," Corsi said, "My motive is to get the information to the American public [so] if they want to read it in a book, they've got one available."

Can any birther explain how Obama’s selective service form could be a forgery when:
1- It came directly from the government as part of a FOIA request (Not from Obama or his campaign)
2- It was released in 2008, when Bush was President.

Was the Bush admin “in on it”?
 

The Way I See It
The Way I See It

 What new evidence was brought to the table by the sheriff?
As far as I have seen there was nothing new that had not already been debunked (see the info on the difference between a forgery and a scan)- I may be wrong and if so do point out my error.

If I am right then you have to ask two questions, in my opinion

1. Why is the sheriff doing this? and
2. Can you trust the judgement of a man who reiterates arguements that have already been debunked.

According to anti-sheriff comments
He is doing this to smoke screen investigations against him, gain support from anti Obama voters - as well as money for campaigns and to gain publicity for forth coming campaigns.

In answer to point 2 there is no way they could trust him and this is the sort of things he does against people he doesnt like. See numerous court cases and settlements.

According to pro sheriff comments
He is the only man with the krudos to do this. About time someone stood up for the truth. Anyone who argues against him is a moron.

And in answer to point 2 It has not been debunked and when it is we will ignore it. See numerous court cases and settlements.

The problem is at the end of the day outside of Arizona it doesnt matter what the sheriff does as he has no jurisdiction in this. He can huff and puff all he likes about it the only ones who should be taking notice is the local asylum. After all does it make sense that he ignores so much that is his responsibility (the management of a police authority) and yet spends time on something that even the political opposition to the president believe is a load of balarny?

You know what is so hypocritical of the birthers - most of them believe that life begins at conception and therefore so do the rights of any citizen, zygotes includes.  But NONE of them are arguing to determine the exact time and location of conception of Barry Sotero / Barack Obama.  They're all about determining the time  and location of the actual birth of the President.  This gives lie to all they're about - it's not about wanting to save unborn souls - it's all about controlling women.  They all know that if women are able to control their own reproduction, we will have less wars (because when women control their own reproduction options they have less children - overpopulation is one of the leading causes of war) and therefore their stock values in the war machine would go down.  It's all about money folks - war is money to these military industrial complex folks and THAT is who the tea party is.  It's The Koch Brothers and other billionaires like them.

It's over, Obama is our President - he became so when he was sworn in and that's all it takes, whether he was born here in Hawaii or Timbuktu.  Even the Supreme Court would reverse the decision of the majority of the voters of this Country that elected President Obama.

The Republicants are NOT going to be able to cheat their way out of that reality.  This whole exercise is a bunch of timewasting shoulda coulda woulda.  

BTW - I thought it was interesting about the stamp on the Selective Service card.  While it doesn't show evidence that the document was forged, it does show something about the ingenuity of our postal workers to stretch our tax dollars.  I'd also like to hear more about why, or if, the immigration records for the week of President Obama's birth were missing from the national archives.

ALSO - I think it's great that a native Hawaiian is now the President of the United States considering that this country illegally invaded and confiscated that legitimate country in the early 1900s.  Payback's a bitch HUH.

Reporter Savannah Guthrie was at the April 2011 WH press conference. She was one of the many reporters who physically examined the physical document. She even took pictures of it with her cell phone. (See here and here).

(a) Did the MCSO contact Savannah Guthrie to inquire as to whether the original she examined was different from the copy posted online?  (Answer:  No.)
(b) Did the MSCO conduct an investigation as to whether the LFBC photos she took were a forgery?  (Answer:  No.)

Why can't Arpaio just really say I don't support a N-word for a president and I announce my intention to force Maricopa County to secede from the union.  Then he declare himself as supreme leader of the Republic of Maricopa and force the citizen to wear pink underwear to instill an unwavering support of Arpaio brilliant leadership.  Maybe he will go in people houses to check if there are brown looking Hispanics so he can deport them or perhaps create a labor class of Meheecans.

Arpaio and his staff demonstrated step-by-step so that the naysayers could try it for themselves...put the adobe-generated pos in their own computers...download from WhiteHouse.gov

Yesterday, An independent expert verified Arpaio's
claim using b.c. pulled from White House website...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7s9Stx...   So all you naysayers...what do you have to say to this?   THIS IS FRAUD...proven FRAUD.

Obama is not and will never be eligible for POTUS due to his self-admitted dual citizenship, passed to him at birth by his British National father from Kenya.

DONE.  IT IS FINISHED.  NOW ON TO THE BUSINESS OF ARRESTING AND JAILING THE USURPER, THE FRAUD.

"... put the adobe-generated pos in their own computers..."  That's the issue. The report is based upon an assumption of how an Adobe photoshop document operates.  Put the document in your computer and run the properties; it was scanned using a Mac .pdf program, which essentially compresses the document to make it readable. The Zebest report upon which MCSO relies was discredited over a year ago for this reason.

More to teh point, the issue isn't whether the scan is fake, but whether the source document is fake. I said this in a previous post, but this is a little like saying the Grand Canyon doesn't exist because a photo of it has been altered. People have examined the actual birth certificate, and found it to be authentic.  Numerous conservatives including Bill O'Reilly, John McCain, and even (shockingly) Glenn Beck have said the "birther" argument is a farce.  Numerous publications have examnied the actual certificate with the embossed seal and found it to be authentic.  This is a non-issue. 

In the end, shouldn't the debate be a rational discussion about what policies should be implemented to create a chance at the best life possible for all of us? It seems that focus gets lost when we deal with these sort of tangential issues.

 You do realize MCSO has no jurisdiction in this matter, yes? The most he can do is submit his findings to the DOJ, which of course already has all of the findings from last year.

If he had ANYTHING to prove fraud he would have held a presser with the DOJ and a federal prosecutor.

Instead it was just his mouth spewing the incessant mush.

What's most funny to me is that the MCSO spent "six months" "examining" an electronic file -- without ever asking to see the original from whence it was created.  They NEVER even tried to see whether the WH would allow them to inspect the LFBC -- the way the WH allowed the various reporters at the press conference to physically inspect the LFBC. The NEVER even contacted the Hawaii DOH to ask whether the image posted on the website was identical to the one that the Hawaii DOH issued.  ??? Those to facts - by themselves - show what a sham Mr. Arpaio's "investigation" is.
