Joe Arpaio Set to Deliver "Birther" Christmas Today, Rumor Mill Claims Evidence of "Criminal Offenses"

kenyabirthcertificate.jpg
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's playing Santa Claus for the "birther" crowd today, as he's delivering the "preliminary findings" of his Cold Case Posse's "investigation" into President Obama's eligibility.

MCSO spokesman Jeff Sprong says it's unknown how many media members will be in attendance for the announcement, "but we are expecting quite a few."

It's apparently so important to the tinfoil-hat types that the conspiracy-theory website World Net Daily will be streaming the 1 p.m. press conference live over the Internet. (Sigh, click here to watch it.)

Arpaio promised the "birthers" he'd be delivering a "shock" into his posse's fresh look into the continuously debunked conspiracy theory, although he claimed last week that he took on the "investigation" into Obama's eligibility to be president because he was "doing him a favor" by intending to clear his name.

According to the rumor mill, he won't be clearing Obama today -- in fact, the sheriff has apparently dropped the phrase "criminal offenses" in reference to the investigation's findings.

Here's what Hot Air claims Arpaio told them yesterday:

"There is new evidence that can prove fraud, forgery and other criminal offenses, I am not accusing the President of committing such acts but these are not just allegations. There are a lot of smoke screens and a lot of smoke. Where there's smoke, there's fire"

Arpaio told New Times in November that the key to investigating whether Obama's eligible for the office of the president deals with twins born at the same Hawaii hospital as the president (allegedly), just one day earlier.

The sheriff said the twins' files could be found on microfiche -- meaning Obama's records should be there too.

Arpaio still claimed that if the twin theory didn't add up, there was "other information" that could solve the case.

Either way, it sounds like the embarrassment's coming (as if it hadn't already arrived when Arpaio announced he was going to look into it).

Judging from the homepage of the Drudge Report before news broke of conservative writer Andrew Breitbart's death, it looks like the wingnuts are prepared to go apeshit express their affirmation of Arpaio's findings.

Watch the video before you comment.  It is One hour and twenty minutes, but worth it.  They present more than enough evidence to start an investigation into forgery and fraud.  Not only do they address the BC they address his selective service form.

Arpaio's a disgrace and a purveyor of fear and bullshit. Lead investigator and "retired" cop, Zullo is nothing more than a washed-out short-time NY/NJ patrol-man and uber cop-fan!

Dear Conservatives:

Please, I beg of you, please please please keep talking about Obama's birth certificate.

Talk about it day and night and never let up. If you like, you can take some time off talking about birtherism in order to talk about contraception, gays, and Republicans passing bills to force woman to have vaginal ultrasounds. Really -- keep it up you conservatives. You have no idea how much you are helping Obama win the election.

Next publicity stunt for Bozo Joe is he'll call a press conference to tell everyone he see's dead people.

Problem is for Bozo Joe, the dead people he's seeing will be all those that have been killed by his Goons in the County jail.

Bozo Joe Arpaio.....Lets see, Space Trips to Mars, Arrested Elvis

Some might call this a pattern of delusional thinking that needs some serious mental help or senility setting end long ago.

The sheriff has NO credibility and should not be given the benefit of a doubt. A waste of somebody's time and money. The hatred, bigotry, racism and intolerance with this sheriff and his enablers, has me switching parties and working to vote these fools out of office.

Arpaio's presentation consisted of trotting out the usual birther self-styled experts to say that their computer analysis of the internet image of the Hawaiian birth certificate gave funny results when analyzed with Photoshop or similar software.  What they don't mention is that Hawaii is REQUIRED by a 2004 federal law [namely Pub.L. 108-458, sec. 7211(b)(3)(A), 118 Stat. 3826, Dec. 17, 2004, codified in 5 USC sec 301 Official Notes] to issue their birth certificates on "safety paper" designed to prevent alteration, counterfeiting and other falsification.  The safety paper is designed to baffle Photoshop and similar imaging software, but Arpaio's amateurs, either ignorant or dishonest about the federal law and the effect of the safety paper, treat the anomalous Photoshop readings as evidence of hankypanky instead of evidence of authenticity.
You'll notice they didn't do a comparative analysis of some non-celebrity's birth certificate printed on similar safety paper.

In short, same-old-same-old birther pseudoscience.  This time frittering away the manpower and reputation of the sheriff's office.

Thank you Bozo Joe for once again making Maricopa County and Arizona in general look like idiots...

Actually, they are idiots if they vote for you.

This is to keep the DOJ from getting a  grand jury indictment against Il Duce. Now he can claim any legal action is retaliation for his "discovery." What a cynical, twisted fuck is America's self-proclaimed toughest sheriff.

Well so far the internet is buzzing that the administration has knocked off Breitbart.

And of course the internet will buzz when Joe is finally arrested by the feds. That it's in direct result of this investigation.

The dumbing down of the ignorant is reaching meltdown proportion.

And after the latest birther media stunt, those of us with fully working brains will still be mocking and ridiculing the wingnuts, and Arpaio.

Of course, if Arpaio's as successful with this endeavor as his endorsements of Russell Pearce and Rick Perry were, then, no doubt, birther victory is just around the next corner.

Or the one after that.

The birthers hopes will be destroyed, yet again, much like the desires of kids on Christmas morning, when they get dress clothes instead of an Xbox or bicycle.

Liberal zombies? Really? What a great oxymoron. (That's not an insult by the way) The uneducated, ignorant, set-in-their-ways and against any progressive change (I suppose Evolution to you is complete liberal b.s. too) are Conservatives. They react emotionally, point fingers, and play the 'whoever can yell loudest wins the argument' game.What's pathetically sad, is that ultra-conservatives will deflect any legitimate point that counters what they believe. Ever tried to talk to an Evangelist Christian about evolution? HAHA, they will tell you that Carbon dating is grossly inaccurate (and that the earth is 6,000 years old). Because they, who aren't scientists, nor understand the scientific process, have the bold ignorance to deny ANY logic, reason, scientific findings, or whatever else threatens their way of thinking or own personal 'faith' based belief system. Remember that age old term, faith? The true zombies out there are the millions of people who are against positive progressive change and equal rights, and are COMPLETELY CLOSED MINDED to anything that goes against their, 'faith'.

Thats what I figure too. If the DOJ charges him now he'll scream retaliation for his MCSO Clown Posse circus act investigation into Obama's birth certificate.

Problem is for Bozo Joe, the DOJ investigation has been going on for years, not 4 months ago when the MCSO Clown Posse started their bullshit over Obama.

He already has. Otherwise there would be no big press conference carried live on that website. The website has already trumpeted that if you want a copy of the investigation, then they'll supply it to you post haste. They already know what he's going to say.

My only hope is that if there are any legitimate reporters there is that they derail his blather and hit him hard on the 400+ sexual abuse cases and the thousands and thousands of warrants that just lay there with nothing done about it.
