Joe Arpaio's Balking at His Chance to Present "Birther" Info in Court, and Orly Taitz Is Mad

Thumbnail image for kenyabirthcertificate.jpg
If, for some reason, anyone needs further evidence of how bogus Sheriff Joe Arpaio's "birther" investigation is, here you go.

Orly Taitz, perhaps one of the most well-known challengers to the eligibility of President Obama, is still trying to contest the issue in court, and tells New Times that Arpaio refuses to show up as a witness in her case.

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

"[W]hat he is doing, equals an obstruction of Justice," Taitz says in an e-mail.

Taitz says she's heated right now about Arpaio not helping out in her case, and Arpaio apparently told his master birther Mike Zullo, and one of their allies, John Sampson, not to go either.

Sampson, a former Immigration and Customs Enforcement officer who's running for state Senate in Colorado, has helped out Taitz before in her court challenges. He was on a radio show this morning, along with Taitz, and here's what he said (thanks to Dr. Conspiracy):

...I was down in Phoenix, Arizona, and met with Joe Arpaio and his crew. And at that meeting I instructed, because there's an ongoing criminal investigation, that they would appreciate it that if I didn't testify at any other hearings. Because of the information that I became privy to as a result of that meeting. Once I get on the witness stand, lord only knows what questions are gonna be asked. And as a result, I've been in touch with Mike Zullo who is the lead investigator for this thing and none of us are going, and I understand where Dr. Taitz is with this, I really do, and I applaud her efforts, but I'm in a bind right now where I cannot...

The man known as "Dr. Conspiracy" summed up that statement perfectly: "Just wow! Arpaio shares with an out of state civilian critical details of an ongoing investigation, but tells him to keep it out of the hands of the courts. I must side with Orly Taitz when she says John's second point is nonsense. Anything Arpaio told him is hearsay and inadmissible..."

So, Taitz says she's had Arpaio served with subpoenas twice, which, we'll tell you, aren't really enforceable. However, she has filed a motion in Maricopa County to compel them to show up.

However, it seems like Arpaio would just at the chance to get his "investigation" heard in court if he truly believes -- as he's claimed several times -- there is "probable cause" of President Obama's birth certificate being a forgery. The same goes with his wish that the issue be kept out of the presidential debates between President Obama and Mitt Romney.

Additionally, Taitz isn't asking for Arpaio to bring the entire case and all the top-secret details of the "investigation" into a courtroom -- she wants him to verify the information in the sworn affidavit he provided about the case.

"He is not showing up, he refused to show up at trial in other cases," Taitz says. "According to an interview given today at a radio show by a deportation officer John Sampson, Arpaio told Sampson and Arpaio's investigator Mike Zullo not to show as well, so three of them agreed not to show up as witnesses at trial. I have no words to describe, how angry I am."

We've asked the Sheriff's Office for comment on the situation, so we'll let you know if they get back to us.

There must be some reason that has to do with legality that joe is not helping Orly Taitz. He should explain it to her because she really is trying to get Obama to Justice, just as is Sheriff Apario. Why can they not work together? It should be obvious that they both are trying to get to the truth. What would working together hurt?

Yet another quote from Theodore Roosevelt:

 

"Obedience of the law is demanded, not asked as a favor."

 

Perhaps the MCSO shurf should read up on TR, one of the greatest men to have ever walked the Earth and one of the best Republicans and Presidents. 

 

Or perhaps the MCSO shurf doesn't recall who TR is....

Apparently the Sheriff, Zullo, and Corsi collected a reported $7M for the "Cold Case Posse" investigation.  If the Sheriff and Zullo are not willing to testify in court as to their findings then they should either a) return the monies they collected under false pretenses or b) face RICO charges or c) both of the aforementioned.

The MCSO shurf has demonstrated dozens of times over the years that he clearly doesn't know Arizona criminal law very well, nor does he understand basic law enforcement concepts or federal laws, or constitutional law. However, he does know that you can't take to court a box filled with air and make a judge or jury believe it contains "secret" evidence. Thus, he won't allow anyone involved in the infamous birther controversy to go to court, with NOTHING.

 

It would be nice if a subpoena was issued and he was called as a 'hostile' witness and made to invoke the Fifth Amendment protection against self incrimination.

Mrs. Taitz, Arpaio dosen't want to show up in Court because he fears he will be spending plenty of time there if he loses his election, and the "Real" M.C.S.O. records become available.

 

Remember when Arpaio stalled giving up records to a Federal Subpoena for six month's until he could cook the books, and line up his "Fall Guys".

 

It is my oppinion that Arpaio's dirty little fingers have been in the "Ricoh Pie" for a long time?

 

I know every one around Arpaio was dirty, and Good ole Joe was completly oblivious.

 

To: Justice.

Here's a quote from Theodore Roosevelt, our 26th President and the nation's youngest President, and I think it describes the Flaccid Fraud perfectly:

 

"No man is above the law and no man is below it. Nor do we ask any man's permission when we ask him to obey it."

I keep going back to Arpaio's affidavit, where he describes what he "believes likely happened." There is nothing Sheriff Arpaio can testify of his own knowledge except the hearsay from Mike Zullo and Jerome Corsi. People speculate that Arpaio is afraid of cross examination. I think he's afraid of being dismissed as, to quote TV prosecutor Hamilton Burger,  "incompetent, irrelevant and immaterial."

joe said he doesnt know who to turn this "iron clad" evidence to,to see legal action taken, he says he is afraid of what action they would take against him. well joe since you are so good at offering people up as sacrificial lambs for any of your actions....give it to Orly, let Orly pursue it, let Orly take the heat. if your case is so explosive, let Orly run with it. .........or are you just talking out the side of your neck, and only saying it for attention? i bet you are

I dont blame Orly for being mad- We who know the truth need to griow up and work together- Orly Taitz does not always have the best style or approach but she is doing what's best for America- Shame on Zulu & Arpaio for not giving their full cooperation-when subpoenaed- They deny that a deal was struck (when the whitehouse mysteriously dropped the charges) but any sane human being knows that something behind the scenes went on that we (Americans) dont know about- we Americans know that is what Obama did to America when he hid his past history & FORGED his birth certificate-and selective service card- The zillionaires are on Obama's side that is why we must stick together- cmon-JOE & MIKE- do it for America even if you dont like Orly-  drop your lawsuits against her and help her out- even if you lose it is the right thing to do-

 @Tommy_Collins Tommy, the MCSO shurf simply doesn't recall what Arizona criminal law is. Nor does he recall what basic law-enforcement concepts, federal laws and Constitutional law are.

 

What he does recall is as believable as a three dollar bill in a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow.

Too late for that one friend, we have dismissed the MCSO Sheriff Joke arPayaso as "incompetent, irrelevant and immaterial"  years ago, and you may also add "coward, senile, lier, corrupt, racist, fool, imbecile, clown", etc.

 A new way to sheriff or just a disrespectful way? Perhaps you want to denigrate the office of sheriff? Whatever you are doing is not working. It will make not one iota of difference for Obama is a criminal who is in the White House illegally.

 LOL, you mean the real LYING COWARD we always knew was there in an MCSO Sheriff's Uniform?  Pretending to be a Sheriff, and above all pretending to be "America's Toughest Sheriff", lol, I guess she just found out she bet on the wrong horse.

 @coyote_slim If you think that was bad, wait until Monday. Taitz has never tried a case before and she is before a judge who is a sticker for the rules.

 @danzigsdaddy Zigs, I smell yet another case of "I don't recall" coming from our very flaccid and senile shurf in the near future....

 @harryorielly As a general rule, conspiracy theorists are loners and don't work well together. Taitz sued birther attorney Phil Berg in a defamation case that's been going on for years. She has had nothing but nasty things to say about Gary Kreep, another former ally and birther attorney. She's blaming Zullo, Arpaio, suing Secretaries of State in at least 4 states, the Republican Party in California. newspapers, radio stations--even a Federal Judge!

 

"Grow up" is right on. Birthers need to stop playing dress up as investigators, attorneys, dissidents, grand jurors, prophets and document experts. And as much as I detest what Taitz is doing, I cast as much blame on the hundred of fawning fans yelling "Save us, Orly" commenting on her blog.

 @harryorielly What part of Article IV Section I of the U.S. Constitution and Article VI Section II of the U.S. Constitution do you not understand?

 

Article IV Section I awards FULL FAITH AND CREDIT TO ALL PUBLIC-RECORDS, including the President's birth certificate.

 

Article VI Section II makes federal law and the U.S. Constitution the Supreme Law of the Land. This is more commonly known as the Supremacy Clause.

 Listen up birther, MCSO Sheriff Joke arPayaso and his clown posse have NOTHING, they are making idiots like you believe their fantasy for headlines and you birthers are too stupid to see past the bullshit.  Officials from the State of Hawaii Office of Vital Records have testified 3 TIMES under Oath in a Court of Law on 3 DIFFERENT occasions that they have ON RECORD the ORIGINAL Birth Certificate of President Obama, and your hero the Flaccid Fool refuses to testify under OATH ALL of his allegations against the President, that should tell you something, Sheriff Joke arPayaso is CLOWN, a COWARD, and a circus monkey, and if you believe his bullshit despite all the evidence or lack thereof then you too are part of that circus.

 

What you birthers need to understand is that in the United States (as I'm sure in the rest of the world too) THERE IS ONLY ONE BIRHT CERTIFICATE, a person will ONLY have one ORIGINAL Birth Certificate, and THAT ORIGINAL is not to leave the States Office of Vital Records VAULT under no circumstances, if you request a Birth Certificate from your state, you get a COPY, EVERYONE GETS COPIES, CERTIFIED COPIES, BUT NOT ORIGINALS, it is IMPOSSIBLE for a person to possess and be able to present an ORIGINAL Birth Certificate for themselves, IMPOSSIBLE, so don't be stupid and stop believing in fairy tales told by old, senile, worthless, old men.
