Joe Arpaio's Sham "Investigation" Into Obama's Birth Certificate Exposed (Yet Again)

Categories: Birthers (sigh)

More than a year ago, Sheriff Joe Arpaio announced his team had developed "probable cause" to believe President Obama's birth certificate was a forgery.

Most people just laughed their rear-ends off and got on with their lives. Others, however, have spent a considerable amount of time proving that every allegation -- every little detail brought up in the "investigation" -- is complete bullshit.

Now, people have discovered the party responsible for creating all the "inconsistencies" in the birth certificate. Arpaio hasn't authorized the arrest of the subject, but the responsible party is . . . a Xerox copier.

After almost every aspect of the "investigation" was exposed as a sham, the birthers have been hanging on to a "computer analysis" of the birth certificate, which tries to prove that some fancy computer analysis shows that some forger had his way with the president's birth certificate.

The report takes issues with individual pixels, and "halos," and shades of black that the report insists must have been done by some great forger.

Turns out, some guy found out that a Xerox WorkCentre copier causes all of the, um, "forgery evidence."

The fellow takes a few documents, scans them into the copier, and all of the "forgery evidence" magically shows up in all his scanned copies. Imagine that.

Of course, it gets worse (it always does). A guy who runs a blog called Reality Check Radio found a video of Arpaio's Cold Case Posse computer "expert," Garrett Papit testing this Xerox thing for himself. Now, this expert is the guy who is so technologically savvy that he uncovered all of these small details in the "forgery." He uploaded the video to YouTube, which shows him unable to figure out how to scan a document on the copier and send it to his e-mail.



Clearly, Arpaio has assigned only the finest investigators to this case.

It is total bologna that a copier can cause this. If that's true then explain the computer generated text fonts...In the 60s? No way! Also explain how the document can de deconstructed into layers in Adobe Photoshop. I don't know if or where he was born, but I do know that the Birth certificate they produced was 100% fabricated bullsh#t!

Then why not supply the real copy of the birth certificate from Hawaii Dept of Health?  Simple resolution and this case would be closed.  But all of his school records, passport records, law clients lists, school grades, travel documents, etc that are easily found on every other president that has ever held office are sealed by lawyers that Obama has hired to prevent the public from knowing anything about him.  Hmmmm, now that's a real head scratcher considering this man holds a public office and is considered public property.  These should be files that are open for the public to view don't you think considering he is paid with our tax dollars?   It would take a two minute phone call to muster up his actual birth certificate but he will never do that because God knows what the American public might actually find out about this deceiving, lying piece of trash.  Nobody bothered to check into this mans actual past in 2008 and we are going to get what we deserve because both parties drank the Kool Aid and bypassed the most important part of electing a President and that is verifying his personal information before he could even put his name on the ticket.

New website in progress: "I Kidnapped Adam Walsh" for the Medellin Cartel (aka Hendry County Sheriff's Department and State of Florida under former att Joseph P.

And, so is the forged birth certificate issue.  Donations under the not-for-profit corp Nancy R Owens,  Inc. would be greatly appreciated to further this cause.  https://www.facebook.com/PablosWhiteRabbit?ref=hl  Mailing address is 5140 Countryside Ct., St. Cloud, Fl 34771  Jimmy Carter, the last American President.

If Obama were white this nonesense never would've been mainstream propaganda for the republicans or Arpaio to use. Ask Ted Cruzz.

If  Mike Zullo reads this could be please confirm I am a person of interest in committing a crime? That is what Carl Gallups said and Carl Gallups claims to speak for Mike Zullo. 


I  am not really worried. I do not have any travel plans to be in Maricopa County soon. I am just curious if Zullo authorized that pronouncement.

Hmm. It appears that Arpaio's expert, Garrett Papit, has suddenly removed the video showing how he conducted his "investigation."

Did the New Times cover where Arpaio's Posse was caught faking their evidence and lying to the public? I forget.

Odd case, this, where the "investigators" are the ones doing the lying and the coverups.

@GMkov Exactly right. There are NINE layers on the bogus birth certificate. There is no way any copier, no matter how complex, will take a document and make the nine layers that are in the BC.

Even if one could, those nine layers would consist of nine different separations of consistent elements. The nine layers in the BC are mixed up.

But, all-in-all, the point you make is right and that's the bottom line: the claim made by "some guy" is total BS.

How about the Dems in 2008, if McCain won, planning to use McCain's birth on a US Military base in an American territory not in the continental US as a means of questioning his legal right to serve as a US President. This is fact not your driveling nonfactual BS.

Of course I wouldn't hesitate to travel to Maricopa County if I had a reason to be there. Mike Zullo is a pretend law enforcement officer pretending that a crime has been committed by using pretend evidence. I might even stop by the used car lot and say howdy to Mike.

Well. I'd like to note that per Dr. Conspiracy below the video may not have been "intended for general viewing." Although one wonders, since it was posted to YouTube and viewable by the general public, exactly what it WAS intended for.

Just another of the mysteries of the Cold Case Posse, I'm sure... like that top-secret "expert" report from the Hawaiian handwriting guy who doesn't seem to know much of anything about computer technology. I wonder why they don't release that to the public? Could it have anything to do with the thorough destruction of every one of their previous "expert" reports..?

By unpaid amateurs on the internet? rotfl...

In any event, I think DrConspiracy is right. The big deal of the video is that Arpaio's "expert" who ran these "expert tests" didn't even use real safety paper. Well. If I were running some high-powered investigation of the birth certificate of the President of the United States, with the authority of the law behind me, I think I'd at least cough up a few bucks for some real security paper. But maybe that's just me. Maybe that's how "real professionals" conduct really, really professional investigations these days.

@nativeborncitizens I don't think the video was ever intended for general viewing. It was just to show somebody that the machine wasn't working.


The big deal in the video is that it shows the birth certificate Papit was using for testing, and it wasn't even on real safety paper. That demonstrates the pathetic state of Cold Case Posse investigation.

@DrKennethNoisewater @nancyruthowens I guess it hasn't occured to your simple mind that if my "stories" weren't true they would have been pulled from the internet almost a year ago. And yet, they're still here and I've build a #Walsh website with NO opposition. Hmm.....

@DrKennethNoisewater @nancyruthowens speaking for everyone again "doctor" kennel ?  free speech for obots only now ? it just show your weakness, & lack of social skills, dontcha think ??

no, I spose not. why not just stick with your protected over regulated forums, where people can't fight back.

By the way Scotty my question was in response to you saying I misspelled your name. Does it really matter Scotty?

DrKennethNoisewater
DrKennethNoisewater

Does what fit Scott? The author of your article doesn't seem to be able to focus on a single claim but rather makes a bunch of random claims. Make a specific claim Scott and try to stick to it fake failed musician Scotty boy. Reality doesn't seem to matter to you which is why you only question Obama's birth certificate and not any president before him.

@DrConspiracy It is still funny that it is suddenly removed when it is mentioned.

And yes, you showed how they were not even using real safety paper. Hilarious... Sorry but whenever I hear cold case posse, I think of a knitting circle. A 501(c)(3) non profit... for goodness sakes... They have no law enforcement powers unless supervised directly by the Sheriff's office and he keeping, quite wisely, his distance.

@nancyruthowens @DrKennethNoisewater Are you on crack Nancy?  The internet is an open forum for people to post nonsense.  So you're basically saying everything on the internet is true?  Like say the 9/11 truthers or the people who believe the moon landing was a hoax.  Your shit isn't true simply because you make up all your claims and can never support them.

@scotte5 Quit your whining scott.  Of course you back up Nancy's psychosis.  No one said she couldn't spout her made up stories anywhere Scott, I simply stated no one cared.  Over regulated?  Are you on drugs Scott?  How is you being able to spout your nonsense for months on end being overregulated?  You're regulated more on Political Forum where you're cornered off into a single category where most of the users don't even see what you post.


You had the ability to post your nonsense up until you violated the rules.  Remember that when you tried claiming RC was a professor at UCONN all based on the shoddy research of Tracy Fair?  You then continued to troll instead of engage in meaningful debate.  Quit your whining if I went to any birther forum I'd be banned immediately which in fact I have been from Free Republic when talking about orly or say birther report when I discredited their nonsense, Mark Gillar banned me from his videos when I made him look like a fool.  Birthers love to complain about lack of comity but then their own sites don't allow any dissenters from the getgo.

@scotte5 @DrKennethNoisewater Sorry Scotty but we have seen everything which is why birthers have to recycle the same claims over and over again. Even you must realize you have nothing which is why you repeat the same bad information.

@scotte5 Barney Fife?  Oh you mean fake "commander/lt/captain/space cadet" Zullo who holds no actual rank.  I haven't had to get between him and congress, reality has already done that.  How's stockman working out?  Stockman to this date has never said he's on board with the birther line.  In fact Zullo admitted two weeks ago he has no idea where Stockman stands and they haven't been in touch.


This means Stockman went dark or birthers interpreted Stockman as something more than it was.  There is no bag of tricks each and every claim birthers have ever made has been discredited.  Birthers on multiple occasions have shot themselves in the foot, I.E. the coding manuals or when birthers found the birth announcements, or say when birther con artist Lucas Smith found Johanna Ah'Nee.  Or say when Butterdezillion found another BC with the socalled "Smiley face" and "txe" stamp.  The more you guys do actual research the more you debunk yourselves.

@DrKennethNoisewater @scotte5 @realitycheck1776 

your job seems pretty easy now barney fife, all you have to do is get between commander zullo and the United States congress.

shouldn't be too hard, if you are as right as you think you are. I don't see it ending anytime soon.

it looks as if your obot bag of tricks is emptying. remember, barney, you just have that one bullet in your shirt pocket, don't use it to shoot yourself in the foot again.... lol

that would be a shame.

It's funny how you always claim to be above it when you're one of the worst offenders. But hey Scott I notice you're still whining about being able to comments months on end before devolving into a common troll and being banned. The first instance I've posted something on a birther site I got banned. You're hanging with the wrong crowd Scotty it's no wonder your life is miserable

@DrKennethNoisewater nope, i'm ok with it. frank is the one with misnomer policy/sensitivity.

I stopped worrying about name calling/enhancement sometime around grade school. I do it too. it's better/more clever than just repeating "birthers are stupit and racist".

ok fake dr. K ?? whatever floats your boat. plus of course I can speak freely here without being edited or banned... lol

@nativeborncitizens I think it's totally hilarious that they didn't even use real safety paper.
