Joe Arpaio Says Book Bashing His "Birther" Investigation is "All Wrong," Although He Didn't Quite Read it

Thumbnail image for birthers.jpg
The book co-authored by one of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's purported "special deputies"/ex-Sheriff's Posse member is "all wrong," according to the sheriff.

Between "no comment" and "it's all wrong," Arpaio tells New Times that he didn't actually read the book apparently slamming his investigation into President Obama's birth certificate and other documents, but he's heard about it, and he's not agreeing with it.

The book, co-authored by Michelle Dallacroce and Michael Bruning -- founders of the Phoenix-based Mothers Against Illegal Aliens group -- is said to look into "the players and hints at the dangers poised by the Cold Case Posse and its public relation frenzy it has been perpetrating upon the public."

One of the things in the book we tried to verify with the Sheriff's Office late last week was the claim that conspiracy theorist Jerome Corsi was given "special deputy" status, while profiting off an investigation ordered in Arpaio's name.

Arpaio's PR folks didn't respond to whether Corsi's been given "special deputy" status, and that question today is what drew the "no comment" line from Arpaio.

As for the book, as we mentioned, it doesn't really follow a logical narrative, but this part of a summary by the authors seems to make the most sense:

It is a representation of how the rule of law can be turned on its head and how the general public can be lured by repetition and dramatic affects into becoming less than respectful of the law by being duped into believing someone else's perception of the truth and the facts, evidence that is begging for an affirmative end. This story points out the players and hints at the dangers poised by the Cold Case Posse and its public relation frenzy it has been perpetrating upon the public.

It is enough to say.....All things are NOT as they appear to be....OR as the Posse would have you believe. In the end, the Author's of this book support a REAL and SERIOUS effort by the Sheriff of Maricopa County to root out the evidence as it relates to the Obama documents and to assign a REAL Deputy Investigator to take charge of this investigation, rather than to continue to allow a self-serving Reporter and an equally self-serving lead Investigator to reap financial gain and public accolades from an effort that will end in chaos and disrepute.

The authors are admitted "birthers," and seem to be pissed off that the investigation isn't being handled like a real investigation, as people have noted since about three minutes into Arpaio's big press conference in March.

The authors also claim the leader of the Surprise Tea Party was using Arpaio as part of a publicity stunt in the second "birther" press conference, not really announcing any new information but rather getting people to show up and sign a petition for the "birther" legislation -- which ended up failing anyway.

As we noted last week, there's really no real way to gauge the veracity of the claims made in the book, but it was entertaining to hear that not every member of the "birther" brigade is on board with how Arpaio, Corsi, and company are handling the so-called investigation.

Taxpaying Voter   " I mean, he didn't even read his OWN book? "  What, can't you read?! Sheriff Arpaio did not write the book.  Michelle Dallacroce wrote the book.  Ever heard of the word "insuborinate"?  Her book, in my opinion is full of misrepresentations and no facts.  A five year old has better discernment the many of you.  By the way I am NOT a birther!

I've written extensively on the book and I consider myself an expert on it. (I haven't read it either, but I made an informed decision not to.)

Foggers and Faithers must be RELLY insecure if they're trying to create the impression of infighting on Sheriff Joe's CCP.

Assuming that the above quote is a direct copy and paste from the "book," I'd say that the "Author's" of the book should have supported a REAL and SERIOUS effort to root out a ninth-grader to check their grammar.

So what? He also didn't read the books he supposedly "wrote."

A plenary authority cannot create natural born citizens; it can only create naturalized citizens. 

Romney, like Obama and Rubio, isn't a natural born Citizen.

George Romney, Mitt's father, was born in Mexico to expatriated Mormon parents who left the jurisdiction of the United States to avoid recently enacted polygamy laws (Miles Park Romney-Mitt's great, grandfather).

Miles Park Romney, rose to become a member of the faith's most important figures and thus tasked with founding new outposts in Mexico. It would have been impossible for Miles Park Romney to accomplish this mission without first becoming a Mexican citizen. When Miles-Parker Romney became a Mexican citizen, his eldest son, Gaskell, who had traveled to Mexico with his father also become a Mexican citizen 1890.

In fact, all of Mitt Romney's paternal grandparents were Mexican citizens, including Anna Pratt, Mitt's grandmother prior to George Romney's birth in Mexico, circa 1907.  What this means is that when the Romneys came back under US jurisdiction in 1912-13, they were illegal aliens.

To date I have found no naturalization documents to suggest that George Romney ever became a US citizen either before or after Mitt's birth.  If anyone has any evidence that Gaskell Romney somehow managed to retain his US citizenship after a sojourn of 25 years in Mexico; please let me know.

 Unlike this "birther" book. Arypayso's book: "Joe's Law" was sold on Amazon for 1 penny(or $1?), the last time I checked. That was 3 years ago.

Did Joke include a picture of him with his arm around JT Ready in his press release?  If not, why not!

Birthers are mostly harmless kooks, but a few of them exhibit the same rabidly irrational hatred that JT Ready exhibited.

 Juli, what you are seeing is the very best product these dimwits can come up with. Please don't expect as much as sixth grade correct grammar from them. They truly do represent those folks who idolize the MCSO shurf...

"No comment"? From the MCSO shurf? WOW.

I think that might be a first, other than his infamous, "I don't recall" from the Az Bar hearings.

Simply more mush from our county sheriff.

This is what we taxpayers get for our taxes paid.

Somewhat like paying for a Mercedes SLC 600 and receiving a 1975 Ford Pinto.

 Tommy,

It is deeper than us getting only $0.08 of value for the dollar spent on MCSO.  Arpaio is so bad and MCSO is so mismanaged that we get a substantial negative value from Arpaio in the form of unnecessary and intentional costs caused or orchestrated by OSB.  We would be far better off if he had never left his home in 20 years as Sheriff.

Well said, Tommy.  Arprio has "inspired" the Jt Ready's ond the Andrew Thomases of this planet by his words, acions and directives, spends 2-hours spouting defamatory malarky about the president's birth certificate, etc., and now we get "no comment" just as we got the 27 :I don't recalls" in 30 minutes during the Tomas disbarment hearings.
Apparently some birthers are beginning to see the writing on the wall, but will they still vote for Arpaio, in a state of denial about his dishonesty and damage he has personally caused?

Of course they will. They've done it for the last 18 years.
