Joe Arpaio's "Birther" Pals Profiting From Obama Birth Certificate "Investigation." Surprised?

birfcertiff.jpg

Document NOT included in the Corsi/Zullo investigation into President Obama.
For the low price of $9.99, you can obtain your own copy of an e-book that's billed as "a law enforcement investigation" into President Obama's birth certificate.

The authors happen to be Maricopa County Sheriff's Office Cold Case Posse "lead investigator" Mike Zullo and notorious "birther" Jerome Corsi.

The forward, unsurprisingly, is penned by Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

According to one sucker on Amazon who actually dropped the $10 on A Question of Eligibility, it's just a re-printed edition of the stuff that was pimped out at Arpaio's press conference last week, and things compiled from Corsi's website.

Arpaio's reportedly not taking cash from the sale of this book, but Corsi and Zullo sure are.

3TV heard from Corsi that neither Arpaio nor the MCSO are making money off the sales, but Corsi and Zullo sure got a great promotion for their book from Arpaio in the form of a two-hour press conference on Thursday.

Corsi's website was also begging for donations to Arpaio's Cold Case Posse several months ago, and this is apparently the product of the Posse's investigation.

Still, is anyone really surprised that Arpaio's "birther" buddies are profiting off the so-called "investigation"?

Much ado has been printed, talked about Obama's eligibility to
be president the precedent was set many, many years ago the last time being 83
years ago with Herbert Hoover.

Obama is the first mulatto president but by no means the first
president with a foreign born parent. Obama's father was not born in the US but
his mother Stanley Ann Dunham (November
29, 1942 – November 7, 1995), Born in Wichita, Kansas.  I
have said a lot of things about Obama, however I don't believe anyone should be
discriminated against for any reason.  Scream, yell, rant about his
policies and vote him out of office but don't continue the witch hunt about
where he was born. To continue the witch hunt about Obama's birthplace is
discriminating against him for his parentage.

Presidents with Foreign Born Parents

http://community.myvoa.com/_Th...

With Barack Obama's
election, immigrant parents from all over the world can now honestly tell their
American-born children that they, too, can dream of one day becoming president. It's a cultural as much as a racial barrier
that's fallen: As the son of a Kenyan man, Barack Obama will be the first U.S.
president with a parent born outside the British Isles or Canada.

Only six other U.S. presidents had a foreign-born
parent. Mr. Obama will be the first in nearly ninety years, since President
Herbert Hoover was inaugurated in 1929.

Andrew Jackson (1829-1837) is the only president born of two immigrants, both
Irish.

Presidents with one immigrant parent are Thomas Jefferson
(1801-1809), whose mother was born in England, James Buchanan (1857-1861) and
Chester Arthur (1881-1885), both of whom had Irish fathers.

Woodrow Wilson
(1913-1921) and Herbert Hoover (1929-1933), whose mothers were born
respectively in England and Canada.

Signers of the Constitution and where they were born... Eight
were foreign born

http://www.constitutionfacts.c...

President's and where they were bornhttp://www.nationalgeograp...

The first black
president was also the first since Herbert Hoover with a foreign-born parent;
the first since Woodrow Wilson to work as a college professor before entering
politics; and the first since Grover Cleveland to have his principal home in a
big Northern city. http://www.presidentsusa.net/p...

The birther issue is a no win..Obama could call a world press conference and say yea it's true I wasn't born in the US but my mother was an American Citizen every country recognizes the baby is a citizen of it's mother's country of origin. There is one congressman that has the balls to take on the issue.He has bill in congress to impeach Obama that will go nowhere we have a gutless congress and supreme court. The surest way is to vote him out of Office. Insist Congress pass a national voter ID law and an amendment to the Constitution that a Presidential candidate must submit notarized documents the were born in America.

600 - 800 FEMA Concentration camps ready in the USA..  Who do you think they're for?  For all the tards here that think Obama is legal.. you'll do just fine.  For everyone else who 'knows' he's not.. He feels threatened.  He's going to re-educate you.. or eliminate you.

Go view the locations of your new camps, where they are and what they look like. 

Your president or fraud in the White House intends to bankrupt the USA.. You don't have to believe one word I tell you.. simply Google and Youtube it.  I'm so glad I don't live in the USA.

 Just watching the way people are voting and the fraud taking place is more than humorous.. what's even funnier.. you actually believe the numbers.  Obama was never VOTED in.. He was chosen..  Romney is going to be his stand in just in case Obama doesn't make it.

Romney will carry you into the illegal wars that Bush and Obama have started.  He'll make sure you have all types of terrorists in the USA after he's killed innocent people in the Middle East in the name of money, resources and control...

Here's some humor for you..  Keep voting for them..

I guess Obama can do no wrong. You've got to an idiot if you think his birth certificate is real. if it was real why not just show it and shut everyone up. Anyone that had nothing to hide would. Oh well, elect him again it can only get worse.

I don't know....sounds like lots of people here are afraid they may have something in this book that might be true and shatter their belief in Obama.  This is hardly the first time these accusations have been put forth not the first time people have tried to dismiss them.

But I suspect where there's smokehere's fire.  Why don't you read it and check for yourselves?  Probably because you're afraid.

Ah, the Birth Certificate That Wasn't There.

"Yesterday, upon the stair,

I met a man who wasn’t there.

He wasn’t there again today...."

An odd feature of many comments is that people aren't really dealing with the implications of the word "forgery."

Arpiao and friends are not a millionaires and it costs to print these things.  And from the story above, Arpiao is NOT personally making any money from this..so why the story?   Trying to marginalize the contents of their investigation by stupid accusations?  People are not stupid as this blogger would like you to believe.

I could be wrong but I don't believe Zullo retired as a police officer.

This so called lead investigator should be investigated. So far it looks like his only claim to fame is volunteering for the Posse. With the lack of personal information about him, sounds like he has been living off mom and dad his whole life! Does anyone have any background on this guy?

Mr. Hendley,

You said, "The authors happen to be Maricopa County Sheriff's Office Cold Case Posse "lead investigator" Mike Zullo and notorious "birther" Jerome Corsi."

This is not completely accurate.  At least the first chapter was mostly cut and pasted from previous WND articles by Corsi.  Here is a comparison done by  Loren Collins,

http://www.scribd.com/doc/8386...

The WND articles are from July and August, 2011, so was the investigative report written before the investigation took place?

Tommy Collins

Certainly no surprise to anyone who has followed the antics and misbehavior of the MCSO for more than any week of any of the past nineteen years. What's really sad is that we have come to expect this from the Flaccid Fool as a merchant might expect "protection" from gang members.

The results of said investigation were published many months ago and were regurgitated for the purpose of making a two minute presser into a two hour diatribe.

What should have been released could have been said like this:

"Following a six month period of time during which no real investigation was attempted, nothing was found to indicate anything more than findings from earlier investigations which found nothing. It appears President Obama was born and may be a United States citizen"

"As your sheriff I will apologize for having wasted your time and the time and energy of personnel resources that should have been used to help solve reported criminal activity".

Instead, the nasty old man conjures more untruths to make folks think he has more power and authority than the other fourteen county sheriffs in Arizona. All of whom, including Babeu, are smart enough to not try to tackle a ghost.

Well, now we see that the so-called "independent" investigation wasn't so independent.  If they had come to the conclusion that the President was eligible, no books.  When will the rubes realize these folks at WND and Orly Taitz et al are just keeping this up to rob them blind?  BTW, does anyone know where Zullo was a detective?  A search throughout the country does not show him retired from any Police Department and there is a question about HIS credentials.

Good God! Look at the tards that gave that book a 5 star review on amazon! 

"Stacey"'s past reviews of products: 

1 star for an electric pencil sharpener because he/she couldn't get the battery cover off... 
5 stars for that waste of electronic space where he/she goes on and on about the intricate inner workings of our government.

 Not afraid...just not willing to pay for sloppy work.  It has already been debunked many times over and has proven not to be a true investigation, just a glorified book release.  No thanks, I'll stick in the real world.

a

That may be because most of the people know that this is not about forgery.  It is about politics and book sales. 

Here is something that some are not considering.  The "investigators" never asked Hawaii to verifiy the contains of the pdf.  Nor did the "investigators" interview people who actually held the certified long form BC (Savanah Gunthrie for example) remember the "investigators" said there was no paper document.  Savanah Gunthrie took photos of the supposedly non-existent document.

The "investigators" never explained how a high resolution image of the non-existent document (like the kind given to the news media by the White House) could be produced from a low resolution pdf?

The "investigator" never explain the source of the SSR document purported to be President Obama's.  Did they just download it from the internet?  Is it really his?  If it is the one obtained in 2008, was it from the Selective Service Administration that at the time was under the control of the Bush Administration?

An odd feature of some comments is that people aren't really dealing with the implications of a "fake" law enforcement investigation

Jim
Jim

Maybe because no forgery has been proven, at least on the part of the President.  The only forgeries that have been seen and proven in the last 3+ years have been from Orly Taitz, WND, and Jerome Corsi.  So, you'll forgive us if we're skeptical of this.  

Jim
Jim

It's an e-book, it costs nothing to print!  And the content of their investigation was in the previous books by Corsi.  Already debunked.  Here's my question mardec, who is Mike Zullo?  He's a retired detective from where?  What's he hiding?  Why didn't the so-called investigation ever even check any details with the Hawaii DOH?  Where are the conclusions from 4 different document experts hired by WND that the BC is NOT a forgery?  They were willing to back up their work.  There are actually a lot more questions about this investigation and the people behind it then there are about Obama's eligibility.

He also has a rather large home in Cave creek, completely walled in and devoid of vegetation. Very weird. It is easy to find with the cave creek area code and his name, even his phone number if anyone has any questions.

a: " The WND articles are form July and August, 2011, so was the investigative report written before the investigation took place?"

Yes.  And the conclusions were arrived at before the investigation took place. Of course, not much of an "investigation" when all the so-called evidence comes from a single biased source,   You want to know what this was about...just follow the money.

Yes indeed, a.   ("An odd feature of some comments is that people aren't really dealing with the implications of a "fake" law enforcement investigation")
That is the single overpowering issue, really the only issue. that this was a "FAKE LAW ENFORCEMENT INVESTIGATION." No contact was made, no inquiries were made of Alaska state offices or officials about Obama's birth record by anyone from the Maricopa County Sheriff's "Cold Case Posse" since Arpaio's announcement of its inception over 6 months ago.And as late as last Sunday, in a Republic op-ed piece by Sheriff Arpaio, he perpetuates the lie that an actual "investigation" took place in those 6 months by his "Cold Case Posse" for the purposes claimed.The sheriff said again what "my investigators and I"  found from "our preliminary investigation."  He said, "we have produced experts," and he speculated about "what "our investigation will bring."Still being embellished and embroidered by Arpaio, it's this fake law enforcement investigtion that needs investigating.

 Keep drinking the kool-aid Jim.  Obama is as fake as a three dollar bill.  Of course he doesn't want to be found out.  He HAS something to hide.  Put your glasses on. 

He's done NOTHING for the USA in the last four years except spend..spend..spend. Oh, I forgot.  He's got you involved in Global wars too.

START A NEW WAR WITH IRAN? REALLY?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...

YOU, the USA are not at war.  YOU, the USA are starting one.  You've listened to the media since TV first came out.. but they don't work for you and me. 

I'm so glad they are starting the impeachment process in Congress.  He's made a complete mockery of your constitution and of 'you the people.'  Thank God someone has the guts to do it.  Keep voting for Obama.. if not.. Vote for Romney.. He'll tell you whatever you want as long as you vote for him... JUST LIKE Obamaface did.  It must have something to do with a microphone.

Here's the funny part Gone...I don't believe the media.  Just like I don't believe WND, just like I don't believe the Sheriff.  I look at the evidence.  And the evidence shows overwhelmingly that the President is eligible to hold office.  I have read all the wild theories and have been following this for 3+ years and the only fools I have seen are the idiots who believe the slop that Orly, WND, Corsi, et al have been throwing out there.  When will people like you realize that they haven't a clue what they're talking about and are just in the business of separating rubes like you from their money?  You're being conned by these folks and you just fall for it.  Talk about believing what you're reading, they got you so suckered it's pathetic.
