Andrew Breitbart's Last Interview Was with Joe Arpaio? Myth Busted

Sheriff Joe Arpaio


Sheriff Joe Arpaio's claim that he was the last person to be interviewed by ​conservative writer Andrew Breitbart is not true.

The claim came out during the height of Arpaio's media attention for his "birther" investigation, and like many of Arpaio's sensational claims -- like arresting Elvis or being kidnapped during his DEA days (or was he kidnapped by Elvis?) -- there's not a single shred of evidence that the Breitbart call ever happened.

In fact, there's evidence that it never happened.

There's a Tea Party fellow from Sun City by the name of Brian Reilly, who's on board with the belief that Obama's from Kenya or wherever but is among the people who realized that the "Cold Case Posse" investigation was a complete scam.

Reilly's been writing pieces calling out the "Cold Case Posse" for some time now, and he's now apparently debunked what he calls the Breitbart/Arpaio "urban legend."

During one of Arpaio's press conferences on President Obama's birth certificate last year, conspiracy theorist Jerome Corsi said he arranged the interview between the two just hours before Breitbart died.

Arpaio said nothing of that during the press conference, but eventually worked it into his index of Arpaio mythology.

Arpaio later told a radio audience that Breitbart called him that night, and had "information" for him in advance of the birther press conference. That led to further conspiracy theories that the government killed Breitbart for knowing about Obama's fake birth certificate, or something like that.

Not quite. Arpaio admitted he didn't even remember the phone call (which wouldn't be surprising, even if it actually took place), and said that Corsi told him it happened.

Now, Reilly discovered that Corsi changed his story, after another conspiracy theorist extraordinaire, Alex Jones, brought it up on his radio program.

"The Breitbart situation is also mysterious to me," Corsi said. "We think now it was one of his staff, it was, uh, I'll get the name here in a minute, uh, one of the, Anita, uh, MonCrief who made the call with one of the Tea Party people."

Whoops.

Corsi continued, "We thought it was Breitbart, Breitbart himself on the line. I handed the phone to the sheriff. The gentleman on the line is talking about Breitbart. It may have been Anita MonCrief trying to get us in touch with Breitbart. And we maybe never actually even connected."

MonCrief is a woman, and certainly has a womanly voice.

Reilly noted that MonCrief, who had written some content for Breitbart's website, posted a lengthy "exclusive" interview with Arpaio the next day, on a different website.

As I said - instead of ridiculing me, like you've learned to do by following obama and the main media, - just find that fact that disputes what I've shown you, and show it to all of us.

It can't be done, guess what, I'm correct. And your bully ridicule doesn't matter.

As you can all see., WhoKnows is trying to discredit me  instead of spending time reviewing the actual document - the facts are here and noone can dispute them. And I've proven that I'm an Adobe expert and not a coder.


BK_spirit
BK_spirit

Let it be known that no one on this site can dispute these facts:

Will someone tell me how a professional forensic expert (who worked for obamas atty's in previous cases) is wrong?

How about the fact that for the Alabama hearing, 2 Different BCs were presented to judge: 1 from DNC and 1 from the obama lawyers - who has 2 different BCs? anyone?

ALL of obamas records, passport, college info, draft records, elementary school records, etc... are under lock and key! Who does that? Someone with something to hide. Not one classmate remembers him at Columbia. 

With these FACTS please respond... don't start on a different topic- please debunk if you can with FACTS.

BK - what would be the result if you called foo(10) in this C code, little expert?


void foo(int i)

{

  if(i) foo(i-1);

  printf("%0x\n",i);

}

I've only spent a few moments to review your exchange. All I'm going to say is you're dithering. You're doing exactly what the fascists want you to do. Wasting time and a huge effort on a fight you can't win. Meanwhile the authoritarian, surveillance government nurtured by Obama continues to entwine itself into the fabric of our lives. Even hard core progressives are offended by this trampling of our Constitution. Put your effort THERE, not on this foolishness.

@BK_spirit No, you are discreding YOURSELF, as anyone with a basic understanding of this can see you're spewing crap you got from other blogs!


The ability to open Adobe and look at the file info, sure doesn't make you an expert!

WhoKnows
WhoKnows topcommenter

@BK_spirit @WhoKnows Why do YOU know the truth, but no one that is sane does?  That should tell you about your "truth"!

WhoKnows
WhoKnows topcommenter

@BK_spirit @WhoKnows So, what was used to scan it (HW,SW), as that will determine the layering.  But you would know that if you were really an "expert"!


Hint.  A pro scanner will often give you multiple layers!)

WhoKnows
WhoKnows topcommenter

@BK_spirit "I'm an Adobe expert- the BC was forged"


The very first statement YOU posted.  Now PROVE it.  What version of Adoobe created the PDF?  Was it converted from a TIFF?

BK_spirit
BK_spirit

@WhoKnows Not the point. You're going off topic again. Just show me where My original statements aren't true. Pretend I have  no graphic knowledge, who really cares. ps- I don't know C code.

Just show me where my original statements aren't true.

@WhoKnows @BK_spirit There are many people who know the truth - you are listening to the wrong people and the obama-adoring media. If this was  GW Bush , he would have been ousted years ago.

@ WhoKnows Thanks for fighting the good fight on this one - glad to have your expertise in graphics to debunk BK-spirit's alleged "facts."

@WhoKnows @BK_spirit 'A pro scanner will often give you multiple layers!'  No sh**, you must have passed Adobe 101. The layers that were made in the obama birth document are obviously not computer generated (some may have been, but not all). How about the masking or didn't you make it to that class? How about the dark green characters and grey/black characters in the same number string?

I can't tell you how it was scanned- I'm not a coder, although I just opened it in Word to see if I could find it for you... 

BK_spirit
BK_spirit

@WhoKnows @BK_spirit As I review it again... it's not only the odd layers, but the intentional masking on the file.... masks don't create themselves... they are created by a human. Check it out C-coder... drag the PDF into AI.

@WhoKnows @BK_spirit  I haven't downloaded it in years, but just did again:

Create Date & Modify date are the same : April 27, 2011 12.09PM

Produced Mac OS X 10.6.7 

PDF v 1.3

Dublin Core Metadata Element Set, v 1.1

It's been stripped of most metadata.

@WhoKnows @BK_spirit No I didn't know that.... now that's stupid. Really, let's stay on course though - dispute me, don't make fun of me.

 again, don't make fun of me, just show me the facts disputing what I say.

1.Let's see the sites that say obama isn't spending millions on this ? 

2.Let's see a link to any one of the records listed, surely you can find 1 authentic document out of ~25.

3. Other? 

ps- only weirdos have cats.

BK_spirit

@WhoKnows @BK_spirit ok there you go again- just send me a link to a site disputing my stated facts about obama. Do you have information that I don't? If so, produce it.


WhoKnows

@BK_spirit Your sites are just blogs by people as crazy as you, and NO proof!

danzigsdaddy topcommenter

@BK_spirit so you can tell us 100% it is a fake, but you cant tell us how it was faked? that doesnt make sense. tell us how it was faked and what was done to fake it and how it was done. if you CAN tell us that, how do we know you arent the one doctoring it to make it appear fake? if you are smart enough to know how to do it, you are smart enough to be the one who did do it. i am by no means a Obama supporter and i never was, but your fake BC claims are bull. if it was so damn obvious, something would have been done before he served his 5th year in office. you are grasping at straws

@WhoKnows @BK_spirit ha again- ridicule will get you no where with me. Sticks and stones brother. You cannot dispute the truth.

@BK_spirit @WhoKnows Does Fox, Rush, and even Arpaio now have to be including on "Obama adoring" bandwagon?  How about the AZ AG and Sos (both tea baggers)?


Face it, BK, you're clueless and pissing into the wind!

@BK-spirit  You presented no facts or data. That's the point. 

WhoKnows

@BK_spirit @WhoKnows What scanner was used, and with a PDF initially created from the scan? (or was a TIFF created and then converted?)  You don't know, you FAKE "expert!


Why does IDing the Scanner require a "coder"?  You REALLY don't have a clue!


You seem to know how to open Word and Adobe, but that is as deep as your knowledge or understanding goes!

WhoKnows

@BK_spirit @WhoKnows Seems Alex jones has that identical data on his site.  Now tell us EXACTLY how the PDF was created initially!

WhoKnows
WhoKnows topcommenter

@BK_spirit @WhoKnows What was used to SCAN the document, as without that info, you can't tell how many layers should be in the file.  And nice job of surfing the web to find this data, even though it's wrong!

@BK_spirit @WhoKnows "I'm an Adobe expert- the BC was forged"

@WhoKnows I'm not going down the rabbit hole for this dinky site, you'll keep saying you want to see more, know more, etc... There are plenty of videos you can see and take the word of the forensic expert.

@BK_spirit @WhoKnows Yes it IS!  Because that what YOU claimed when you posted the PDF BS!


Let me refresh your emply little head with the first words of your repeated post!


"I'm an Adobe expert- the BC was forged"

@WhoKnows The topic isn't whether I'm an expert - I don't care if you believe me or not. Let's pretend I have no training at all. You tell me or show me a dispute to my facts. Don't make fun of me, that's too easy.

WhoKnows

@BK_spirit @WhoKnows It shows how BAD your "sources" are!

Now, what version of Adobe created the original PDF, little graphics "expert".  What scanner and Scan sw was first used?

@BK_spirit 


What HW and SW (including the version) was used to scan the BC, little fake "expert"?

@BK_spirit @WhoKnows You're easy to make fun of, because your "proof" is so BOGUS!


What version of Adobe was used to first create the PDF?  If you are an "expert" YOU must know!


Was it even Adobe?  Do you have proof it was?

@WhoKnows @BK_spirit There you go again, making fun of me. Now you can send me some simple links:
