Joe Arpaio's 'Cold Case Posse' Concludes Obama's Birth Certificate is Fake

Categories: Politics, WTF?
Thumbnail image for obama-alien.jpg
We last heard from Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio back in December, when a panel of judges from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, based in San Francisco, grilled his lawyer on the sheriff's alleged violation of an Arizona newspaper's First Amendment rights. (Disclosure: That newspaper is the Phoenix New Times, owned by SF Weekly parent company Village Voice Media.)

Arpaio emerged into the national spotlight again yesterday with an important piece of news: The "Cold Case Posse" he formed to investigate the circumstances of President Obama's birth has concluded that Obama's birth certificate is a forgery.

We happily direct you to the coverage of this momentous discovery by our sister paper in Phoenix, which has also published the 10-page "report" on his investigation Arpaio brandished at a press conference yesterday. As New Times news blogger Matthew Hendley put it, "Yes, the year is 2012, and yes, New Times and several dozen other media outlets just listened to more than two hours of a 'birther' conspiracy theory facilitated by Joe Arpaio."

The birther movement, if you remain blissfully unaware of it, is the name given to a functionally illiterate quest to prove that Barack Obama is a citizen of Kenya and/or the Abbasid Caliphate and/or the planet Vulcan. Since Obama is not an American citizen, birthers argue, he cannot constitutionally occupy the White House. A keystone of their theories is the contention that Obama's U.S. birth certificate, on record in his home state of Hawaii, is fake.

Arpaio apparently tried to toe the line, inasmuch as lines can be toed during an announcement like this, by claiming that he is "not accusing the sitting President of the United States of committing a crime." However, he called for a congressional investigation of the evidence he uncovered, and claimed to have identified an unnamed "person of interest" behind the forgery of Obama's birth certificate and Selective Service card, and the destruction of his immigration records.

By the way, here is the president's birth certificate.

 The government is running the online conversation desperately trying to conceal the truth from leaking out about the coup and cover up.

You are so very ill-informed!  You haven't even taken a look at the Sheriff's March 1 Press Conference!!  I you have, then something surely has got your head all mixed up!!  What about that ORG method of taking the "layers" off a computer-generated document and placing "them" or "it" anywhere on the other part(s) of the document that you think it will make it look more real, more authentic???

PLEASE GO TO www.youtube.com or to www.westernjournalism.com.  This VIDEO from either place will not only show you, but teach you the technique & method used to forge Obama's birth certificate AND his SELECTIVE SERVICE REGISTRATION!!!  You surely can't say that the Selective Service Registration if for real after watching the investigators' case(s) on both!!!

And, also, there's a document on the Internet also from www.westernjournalism.com entitled, "clearingthesmoke". It's 14 pages in case you want to read it or print it.  Make sure you bring up the PDF "edition"--It will show "PDF" format in "blue".  AGAIN, IF YOU CAN READ THIS AND STILL THINK HAWAII, THEN YOU SURELY NEED TO GET YOUR HEAD CHECK OUT!!!!

There's also another document, "A Hawaiian Election Official Now SWEARS There's No Birth Certificate!!!  Tim Adams had to review ALL VOTERS REGISTRATION to see that they were Hawaiian residents.  AGAIN, NO BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA!!!

In Christ Jesus and For His Holy Namesake,Nellie AustinBIRTHER AND PROUD OF IT!!!--We're going to win this someday when our Sovereign God decides it's His Time to do so:  Eclessiates 3:1-8.II Corinthians 5:9AND VERY CONSERVATIVE REGISTER VOTER!

The only ones that are functionally illiterate are the ones following this fraud obama around and believing everything this idiot says . The Obots can't deny the truth so they play the race card or resort to some other childish action . Denying the the fact dose not change the fact that We The People have a criminal and a fraud sitting in the White House going by the name of Barack Hussein Obama using a stolen social security number .

Had this been any other president, the whole thing would have been checked out thoroughly a long time ago.

If it could be proved that Joe Arpaio was qualified to be president of the United States and Barack Obama wasn't, I'd say that was a flaw in the Constitution, not in Obama.

If you are a birther, you are an idiot.

I don't know why the media are giving Sheriff Joe this unwarranted attention. Despite the fact that he clearly wants to be king of Arizona, he only has jurisdiction in his county.Let the morons who keep voting him into office deal with his antics. And if this is a priority for the voters of Maricopa County, well, they've got exactly the government they deserve: a sheriff who lets hundreds of real crimes, like sexual assault, go unsolved, because he's an attention whore who wastes limited law enforcement resources on these absurd wild goose chases.

So if Sheriff Joe can't accept that the President's documents are real, because he doesn't want to have to respect the President, is he also doing that to other people in Arizona, especially if they look Mexican?

Rachel

Are you referring to all the people who are in his jurisdiction ILLEGALLY?  Gee...doing one's job is now called "lack of respect"??   I think YOU lack respect for our LAWS, Bill.  You have THAT in common with the Fraud-In-Chief.

You aren't too much of a pseudo-intellectual left wing liberal are you, Bill?  Basically, Sheriff Joe PROVES the Birth Certificate is a FAKE and you choose to make irrational accusations because he opposes your pie in the sky ideology?  Saul Alinsky would be proud of you, Bill.

What about the birth notices at the time in two Honolulu newspapers?

The birth certificate is a fake...and according to Abercrombie, Hawaii HAS no original.  And the selective service paperwork is also a phony.   Things that make MOST intellectually curious people go "hmmmm....".

That's already been answered. Anyone can put an announcement whrever they were born

Rob.  He probably WAS born in Honolulu, but THAT is not the point here.  The better question is WHY DID HE RELEASE THIS FORGED/FAKE BIRTH CERTIFICATE?  

John
John

Obviously, his 18-year-old unmarried mother had the foresight to know that her baby was going to run for president almost 50 years in the future, and used her vast network of high-level connections to get a fake birth notice planted in the local papers.

And the fact that there's absolutely no record of his mother traveling to Kenya any time near the date of Barack Obama's birth is just further evidence of how deep this conspiracy goes!

Dear critical thinkers and the others who REFUSE to deal with reality. A 10 month FORENSIC INVESTIGATION has been done on Obama's documents. The methods used to process the information was broken down and made into a series of videos. They are public material. After watching the videos, and using basic logic, the only logical conclusion you can have is this: OBAMA'S DOCUMENTS WERE CREATED ELECTRONICALLY ON A COMPUTER AND THEY ARE FAKE! Is the sky blue? Is water wet? Is snow white? The answer to all is YES! Why would you look at conclusive forensic evidence and dismiss it? If you do, you are a pathetic fool. This was not a publicity stunt. This was a real investigation using CRIMINAL FORENSIC PROCEDURES. The results are CLEAR. Time to start dealing with that reality!

John

All of these issues were raised days after the birth certificate was released.

If you bothered to actually learn about how Adobe's PDF compression works, you'd know that Sheriff Joe's conclusions are bullshit.

Rob Andeson
Rob Andeson

The Hawaii Dept. of Health claims that they still have Obama's original birth certificate. Are they in on the conspiracy too? And then there are the birth notices printed a few days after his birth in two Honolulu papers.

It's not just the birth certificate.  There's an issue with Obama using a Social Security that was hijacked, issues with his college records missing, his college papers missing, the funding and fast tracking of his law school education, filing for FOREIGN student aid, forged selective service card.  It appears that Obama's occupation of the White House was the result of an operation going back many years.  Why was Hillary unacceptable to the faction that propelled Obama's candidacy?  What is the composition of that faction and to whom does it owe allegiance?

It's no theory, Anastasia.   The conspiracy is the fraud being perpetrated on the American people...and the total mainstream media black-out of this very important Constitutional issue. Denial is another spice, my dear.

Um, guys? His mother is a citizen. That answers the question of his citizenship for ALL TIME. Don't you have better ways to use your prodigious mental wattage?

If that were to be the case all these anchor babies from Mexico are illegal and should go back to Mexico.

He has to be a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN to be president, meaning that he has to have been born in the US. His mother's citizenship is irrelevant.

Well that means John McCain was ineligible for the Presidency as he was born in Panama.

BTW, if you weren't paying attention, Obama was born in Hawaii, which was a state in 1961. Try again. Try harder.

It's too bad you are so incapable of any critical thought and understanding of basic analysis. If the picture of you is correct, you are a black woman. YOU should be FURIOUS at Obama. Out of all the talented black people who have the knowledge and experience to be president..........why did it have to be him? Obama is a disgrace to all black people. A black president was finally elected and what does he do-- he destroys the country and lies with every breath he takes. All black Americans should be appalled at what he has done. You have been USED!

Anastassia Davis
Anastassia Davis

Last I checked, the pic was correct. Hah.

I don't know that he's 'destroyed the country' or lied any more than any other slick asshole who's baby-kissed his way into the White House. He doesn't deserve more of my vitriol than any other past president just because we both happen to be black. Our shared disappointment in him hardly makes Obama a disgrace to all black people. And why did it have to be him? 'Cause no one else [relatively sane] ran, dude.

I've actually swallowed so much outrage over the fact that people I vote for never keep their promises that I've stopped caring. Did you feel personally used over the lies and mistakes perpetrated by the last president you supported? I didn't. I would rather expend my energy on things other than circular, baseless conspiracy theories...like getting enough fresh air and exercise, or becoming a better human being.

 They're just upset that a (half)black man became President.

I voted against his white half. Is that acceptable?

Meatsack

Why does everything revolve around race with you people?

The rights bizarre obsession with Bill Clinton's sex life was because he was white?

The crazy often goes full circle when it comes to politics, the lefts obsession with race is so weird.

The reason they are obsessed with this birther business is because they are idiots.

Anastassia Davis
Anastassia Davis

Both sides now. Look at the right's obsession with race.

Earlier in his presidency, it centered around quips that Obama wasn't black, because his mother is white. When that didn't go anywhere, right-wingers tried to prove he wasn't actually a citizen. His judicial appointments have been more racially diverse than those of any other president, but the GOP lobbies against them continue to complain that standards are being lowered. There is still an awful lot of seething rage over Obama's skin color in large pockets of the country. I'm glad you don't seem to share the obsession, but you can't deny it exists.

It is a fake but it means nothing major because he's from a union of an affair with an African-American citizen named Frank Marshall Davis. Frank was from Chicago. It's a non-issue.Doesn't anyone read whatreallyhappened.com?

Nothing "dumb" about it. Meatsack.  Sheriff Joe is in agreement with EVERYONE else who has investigated the authenticity of the Birth Certificate.  It is a FAKE!  End of subject.

Arpaio claims that PDF file that contains Obama's birth certificate when opened with Adobe Illustrator is "layered", which means that someone may have tampered with it.  Serious people should just verify, whether, that is true, or not.  If it is true then other documentation is needed.  Obama is not a king, but the president, and citizens have a right to verify his documentation. 

John

The issue with layers has been discussed repeatedly. If you think that the fact that the PDF has layers proves that it was forged, you simply don't know how PDF compression works.

I think Barry was born in HI but still not a natural born citizen because he was into the jurisdiction of Britain due his father.

James, if you actually knew anything about how citizenship law in the U.S. works, you'd know that your argument is bullshit.

Bill in SF
Bill in SF

 No, that's not how American citizenship works.  If his father was a British citizen at the time, he might also have the right to dual citizenship, but he doesn't lose his American citizenship just because of that.

Pretty funny the way the media writes it all off as a joke when it's actually a very serious subject and the evidence for Obama's side of the story is so weak. I didn't think much about the birther thing until Obama released this sketchy PDF. I work quite a bit with Photoshop and Illustrator and there is some seriously strange content in this file. So laugh it up Peter Jamison. You obviously have not really taken a look at this subject and instead choose to tow the party line.
