Preliminary Report by Sheriff Joe Arpaio on Obama B.C. & Selective Service Documents

March 1, 2012

This is the complete text released today, by World Net Daily, of Maricopa County (AZ) Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s investigation into certain documents relating to Barack Obama. The stated conclusion is that probable cause exists to believe that both the most recent birth certificate and the Selective Service registration pertaining to Obama are forgeries. Here is link (PDF) to an interesting and somewhat technical analysis of the birth certificate.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio

“President Barack Obama’s long-form birth certificate released by the White House on April 27, 2011, is suspected to be a computer-generated forgery, not a scan of an original 1961 paper document as represented by the White House when the long-form birth certificate was made public,” Arizona’s Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio said at a press conference today in Phoenix.

This is the major preliminary finding of a six-month ongoing Sheriff’s Cold Case Posse law enforcement investigation into the authenticity of Obama’s birth certificate and his eligibility to be president.

Having developed probable cause to believe the long-form birth certificate was most likely a computer-generated forgery, investigators began examining other evidence of President Obama’s life history.

Investigators additionally have developed credible evidence suggesting:

•    President Obama’s Selective Service card was most likely a forgery, revealed by an examination of the postal date stamp on the document;

•    Records of Immigration and Naturalization Service cards filled out by airplane passengers arriving on international flights originating outside the United States in the month of August 1961, examined at the National Archives in Washington, D.C., are missing records for the week of President Obama’s birth, including the dates Aug. 1, 1961 through Aug. 7, 1961.

Beginning in October 2011, the Sheriff’s Cold Case Posse, consisting of former law enforcement officers and lawyers with law enforcement experience, examined dozens of witnesses and hundreds of documents, as well as taking numerous sworn statements from witnesses around the world.

In August 2011, 250 members of the Surprise, Arizona, Tea Party, residents of Maricopa County, presented a signed petition asking Sheriff Arpaio to undertake the investigation.

The Tea Party members petitioned under the premise that if a forged birth certificate was utilized to obtain a position for Barack Obama on the 2012 Arizona presidential ballot, their rights as Maricopa County voters could be compromised.

The Cold Case investigators further determined that the Hawaii Department of Health has engaged in what Sheriff’s investigators believe is a systematic effort to hide from public inspection whatever original 1961 birth records the Hawaii Department of Health may have in their possession.

“Officers of the Hawaii Department of Health and various elected Hawaiian public officials may have intentionally obscured 1961 birth records and procedures, to avoid having to release to public inspection and to the examination of court-authorized forensic examiners any original Obama 1961 birth records the Hawaii Department of Health may or may not have,” said Mike Zullo, the lead investigator in Sheriff Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse.

The Cold Case investigators have not yet determined who, when, or precisely how the long-form computer-generated birth certificate released on April 27 may have been forged, but investigators say the evidence contained in the computer-generated PDF file released by the White House as well as important deficiencies in the Hawaii process of certifying the long-form birth certificate establish probable cause that a forgery has been committed.

The Cold Case Posse investigators advised Sheriff Arpaio that the forgers most likely committed two crimes: first, in fraudulently creating a forgery that the White House characterized, knowingly or unknowingly, as an officially produced governmental birth record; and second, in fraudulently presenting to the residents of Maricopa County and to the American public at large a forgery the White House represented as “proof positive” of President Obama’s authentic 1961 Hawaii long-form birth certificate.

“A continuing investigation is needed to identify the identity of the person or persons involved in creating the alleged birth certificate forgery, and to determine who, if anyone, in the White House or the state of Hawaii may have authorized the forgery,” Arpaio said.

Among the evidence released at the press conference were five videos the Cold Case Posse produced to demonstrate why the Obama long-form birth certificate is suspected to be a computer-generated forgery.

The videos consisted of step-by-step computer demonstrations using a control document.

The videos were designed to display the testing used by the investigators to examine various claims made by supporters of the April 27 document.

The videos illustrate point-by-point the investigators’ conclusion that the features and anomalies observed on the Obama long-form birth certificate were inconsistent with features produced when a paper document is scanned, even if the scan of the paper document had been enhanced by Optical Character Recognition (OCR) and optimized.

Additionally, the videos demonstrated that the Hawaii Department of Health Registrar’s name stamp and the Registrar’s date stamp were computer-generated images imported into an electronic document, as opposed to actual rubber stamp imprints inked by hand or machine onto a paper document.

“That we were able to cast reasonable suspicions on the authenticity of the Registrar stamps was especially disturbing, since these stamp imprints are designed to provide government authentication to the document itself,” Zullo said, stressing that if the Registrar stamps are forgeries, the document itself is likely a forgery.

The investigators also chronicled a series of inconsistent and misleading representations that various Hawaii government officials have made over the past five years regarding what, if any, original birth records are held by the Hawaii Department of Health.

“As I said at the beginning of the investigation,” Arpaio said, “the president can put all this to rest quite easily. All he has to do is demand the Hawaii Department of Health release to the American public and to a panel of certified court-authorized forensic examiners all original 1961 paper, microfilm, and computer birth records the Hawaii Department of Health has in its possession.”

Arpaio further stressed the Hawaii Department of Health needs to provide, as part of the full disclosure, evidence regarding the chain of custody of all Obama birth records, including paper, microfilm, and electronic records, in order to eliminate the possibility that a forger or forgers may have tampered with the birth records.

Arpaio went on to say the President should also authorize Kapiolani Hospital, the birth hospital listed on the Obama long-form birth certificate, to release any and all hospital patient records for Stanley Ann Dunham Obama, his mother, and for the newly born Barack Obama, in order to provide additional corroboration for the original 1961 birth records held in the Hawaii Department of Health vault.

“Absent the authentic Hawaii Department of Health 1961 birth records for Barack Obama, there is no other credible proof supporting the idea or belief that President Barack Obama was born in Hawaii, as he and the White House have consistently asserted,” Zullo said.

“In fact, absent the authentication of Hawaii Department of Health 1961 birth records for Barack Obama, there is no other proof he was born anywhere within the United States.”

Arpaio concluded the press conference by suggesting a congressional investigation might be warranted and asked that any other law enforcement agency with information referencing this investigation be forwarded to his office.

The Birth Certificate Bandwagon and Pursuit of “The Noble Truth”

July 16, 2009

Some honest and responsible commentators and bloggers have been understandably reluctant to jump on the “Where’s the Birth Certificate” bandwagon out fear of being labeled cranks and nutjobs. One such person is Hasan Nurullah who blogs at Digital Publius. In a piece dated yesterday he writes, apparently inspired by the Major Stefan Cook business:

Up to and until now, I have steered clear of this whole birth certificate thing,
in an effort to set aside my credulity in believing in the overall
fishiness of all things liberal. But, when you start seeing the
bureaucratically obsessed U.S. army revoking orders without the proper
protocol being met…

For an administration touting their commitment to openness and
accountability, what is the big deal about showing a long form birth
certificate? Here in Detroit, if you lose your birth certificate, you
can go to the health department at Herman Keifer hospital, and they
will send you a new certified copy. They don’t have a health department
anywhere in the state of Hawaii if he lost his?

Never has there been a president more reticent about sharing records of the
past. It seems that his birth certificate is not the only document
unavailable for scrutiny, his records from Occidental College Columbia
University and Harvard Law have also proven difficult to obtain.

At this point, I would be reticent in believing any documents presented so
late in the game, how long does it take to forge credible documents
today? I fear that I may have to jump on the birth certificate crowds
bandwagon until the President sends a clear statement by asking
michelle to fish it out of the family safe. Lets go Mr. President ante
up, you want to play the hand before showing that you are in possession
of the stakes you need to join the game.

Also from yesterday’s news:

White House Liar-in-Chief Robert Gibbs, when questioned once again by Lester Kinsolving, continues his dissembling and obfuscation on the Obama birth certificate issue:

No, Lester, let’s finish this one. Do all of your listeners
and the listeners throughout this country the service to which any
journalist owes those listeners, and that is the pursuit of the noble truth.
And the noble truth is that the President was born in Hawaii, a state
of the United States of America. And all of this incredible
back-and-forth — I get e-mails today from people who inexplicably can
figure out very easily the White House e-mail address, and want proof
of where the President was born.

(source: Citizens against Pro-Obama Media Bias)

Imagine having to strengthen the truth by calling ones truth “noble”. Such antics point to falsehood rather than truth. Of course he could not say “honest to God truth” or something similar. That would be politically incorrect. Here’s the Audio;
more audio (Bret Baier on Fox).

And some video (Bret Baier on Fox):

When someone with Gibbs’s history of obfuscation has to qualify truth with noble I smell a lie. Another exchange between Kinsolving and Gibbs:

Kingsolving says what’s on the internet [what Gibbs referred to as barry’s birth certificate] is not a birth certificate.
Gibbs I KNOW.
End of story. He admits on the official record – in the transcript and
on video and eyewitness testimony – that he knows that useless COLB is
not a birth certificate..

Obama Eligibility: A Letter to Rupert Murdock

May 28, 2009

Family Security Matters contributor, Attorney John D. Hemenway , has published an interesting letter to News Corp. chief Rupert Murdock asking that he direct his Fox News people to report on the Barack Obama eligibility controversy. Hemenway writes of a “ massive collapse of the fundamentals of the electoral process (ensuring candidate eligibility)” and places Murdock’s Fox News in the midst of the controversy because of  the news division’s avoidance of the Obama  eligibility issue; saying further that  orders from on high forbade commentators from mentioning it. Hemenway writes:

There are reports that top management of Fox instructed its commentators to stay away from the subject – a strange position for a service that deservedly won a reputation for “fair and balanced” reporting. I cannot believe that you would issue such an order, with your good sense. Was it Roger Ailes or someone else?

The letter is long but well worth reading and you can do so here.

The Quest for Truth: Nothing Conspiratorial About That….

December 4, 2008

While the SCOTUS may very well brush aside (Dec 5) the pleas of Leo Donofrio et al, there is no way the issue of Barack Obama’s eligibility for president is going to go away anytime soon. Unless,of course, Mr. Obama has a change of heart and releases his birth certificate vault copy, his medical records, and his college records. That’s all the American people are asking and the matter could be put to rest so simply that the mind boggles at the thought of what he could be hiding. The Chicago Tribune, where this full page ad (PDF) appeared twice this week, weighs in today with a debunking article:

The U.S. Supreme Court will consider Friday whether to take up a lawsuit challenging President-elect Barack Obama’s U.S. citizenship, a continuation of a New Jersey case embraced by some opponents of Obama’s election.

The meeting of justices will coincide with a vigil by the filer’s supporters in Washington on the steps of the nation’s highest court.

The suit originally sought to stay the election, and was filed on behalf of Leo Donofrio against New Jersey Secretary of State Nina Mitchell Wells.

Legal experts say the appeal has little chance of succeeding, despite appearing on the court’s schedule. Legal records show it is only the tip of an iceberg of nationwide efforts seeking to derail Obama’s election over accusations that he either wasn’t born a U.S. citizen or that he later renounced his citizenship in Indonesia.

Ed Morrissey at Hot Air goes out of his way to pooh pooh the whole affair and concludes by saying; “I’m sure the comments section will fill with various conspiracy theories over Indonesian school records, Kenyan births, and so on.” Morrissey was correct; he received a torrent of comments, most of them well thought out and on point. Nothing conspiratorial about them. Some sample comments:

–While this has been a tiresome episode, it seems to me that any and all persons seeking the highest office should provide evidence to support their eligibility for the office. The same goes for voter registrations; Self declaration of citizenship does not seem to be satisfactory in this day and age.

–While I agree this basically will fizzle out, why doesn’t he just release it to shut everyone up? Not doing so just looks bad, like there’s something to hide.

–Ed, if there is nothing to hide then why won’t Obama just show the long-form Certificate of Birth. Hawaii doesn’t even accept its own Certification of Live Birth for official proof for their Hawaii Homes Program (or whatever it’s called).Whether there is anything to this or not, if he doesn’t get transparent and just cough up the goods then his upcoming presidency will be even more tainted. It’s easy. Just show us, through the courts not freaking KOS or factcheck.org, the birth certificate. End of story.

–While he’s at it he ought to release his medical records, his tax records and his college records. If he’s gonna be our president we ought to finally get to know who he is and what he’s been up to.

–I had to provide a certified copy of my birth certificate to get a license, go to college, join the military, and get a civilian job. I had to provide high school transcripts to get into college, for my scholarship and to get into the military. I had to provide college transcripts to get into grad school.Why can’t the man who is about to enter the office of the President of the United States be required to do the same?!?!?! Why can’t he be expected to do what the average citizen has no problem doing?

And, on and on….conspiratorial my foot!

Blackmail and Barack Obama: He Would Be at Risk….

December 3, 2008

Although not yet a sure thing, should Mr Obama be sworn in on Jan 20, 2009 without having been required to prove he is a “natural citizen”, or even  that he was born in Hawaii, we are left with a President vulnerable to blackmail. One can imagine an unfriendly nation or entity in possession of the facts about Obama’s birth using that  heretofore unrevealed  information as  a threat to  force  compliance with the  enemies wishes. Attorney Edwin Vieira is quoted The Philadelphia Bulletin as follows:

The current (birth certificate) question is concerning the man who potentially could have his finger next to the nuclear button.

“[The birth certificate], in theory, should be there,” said Mr. Vieira. “What if it isn’t? Who knows, aside from Mr. Obama? Does Russian intelligence know it isn’t there? Does Chinese intelligence know it isn’t there? Does the CIA know that it isn’t there? Who is in a position to blackmail this fellow?”

This is precisely the danger that the founders considered when they demanded a higher standard of citizenship for a President than for any other federal office.. The question of “divided loyalties”, and the danger of a “dual citizen” becoming President was to be strictly avoided.

Who else may know, other than Obama himself, what the sealed Hawaiian birth certificate says? We can be fairly sure that person(s) in the Hawaii Department of Health have seen the document, or perhaps Gov Linda Lingle herself. Could this be the reason Gov Lingle was a “no show” at the national governors meeting with Mr. Obama?

CT Sec of State Errs: Hawaii Officials Did Not Verify Obama Birthplace

November 29, 2008

Below is a partial screen shot of a letter sent by Connecticut Secretary of State Bysiewicz to a person requesting information under Freedom of Information laws. Requested was information on file regarding Barack Obama’s place of birth. Sec. Bysiewicz replied that her office did not maintain files containing such information and further stated, incorrectly as it turns out, that Hawaiian officials had issued assurances that Obama was born there. In fact, they said only that Hawaii Health Department had an original Certificate of Live Birth on file. Most importantly they did not specify what the document says. Under Hawaiian law at the time of Obama’s birth, a person born overseas could be registered at some later date to obtain a Hawaiian birth certificate.

Below is reproduced the document wherby Barack Obama announced his presidential candidacy in Rhode Island. Title 17-23-17 of Rhode Island code reads in part:

(a) Any person is guilty of a felony who:

(1) Makes a declaration of candidacy or obtains, circulates, or causes to be circulated his or her nomination papers for an office, knowing or with good reason to know that he or she is not qualified as provided in this title to be his or her party’s candidate for the office;

(2) Knowingly or without reasonable and proper investigation makes any substantial misstatement in any declaration of candidacy, nomination paper, or affidavit provided for in this title;

(3) Signs a nomination paper when he or she knows that he or she is not qualified to sign;

On this form Barack Obama “declares that he is eligible under the laws and Constitution of The United States to serve in the Office of The Presidnet of The United States if elected…”
