Press Corps Can’t See The Elephant In The Living Room

Ignore it, it'll go away.

You know the analogy:  The obnoxious, intoxicated, odious relative who sits at the Thanksgiving dinner table and makes everyone wince in embarassment is ignored, like he’s invisible.  Well, there’s an elephant sitting in the national living room right now and the American Press Corps is doing a damned fine job of pretending like that elephant isn’t even there on the couch.  The pachyderm that no one wants to acknowledge is in the form of the criminal investigation currently underway in Arizona by Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse.

His volunteer unit is looking into some pretty serious crimes – such as the apparent computer-generated forgery of Barack Obama’s long form birth cerificate, the amateurish forgery of his Selective Service Registration Card and his inexplicable use of a Social Security Number that was issued out of Connecticut, when he never lived there. 

As if that should  not be enough to raise some media eyebrows, a retired U.S.P.S. Mail Carrier has given a sworn statement to Arpaio’s team, in which he maintains that Barack Obama was introduced to him by the family of terrorist Bill Ayers clear back in the 1980s – and that Obama was presented as a foreign student who was receiving aid from the Ayers family for his Harvard education.

This is the biggest fraud investigation in the history of the nation, but you’d never know it to pick up any major newspaper.  Here’s the link to the latest developments over at World Net Daily:

The big headliner across the nation is Tim Tebow’s trade to the New York Jets and the Denver Broncos’ acquisition of Peyton Manning.  The complicity of the Major News outlets in covering up Arpaio’s historic investigation is staggeringly beyond imagination.  It goes to demonstrate what deep existential trouble this nation is in.  We have no Press Corps.


About John L. Work

John Lloyd Work has taken the detective thriller genre and woven an occasional political thread throughout his books, morphing what was once considered an arena reserved for pure fiction into believable, terrifying, futuristic, true-to-life “faction”. He traveled the uniformed patrolman’s path, answering brutal domestic violence calls, high speed chases, homicides, suicides, armed robberies, breaking up bar fights, and the accompanying sporadic unpredictable moments of terror - which eventually come to all police officers, sometimes when least expected. He gradually absorbed the hard fact that the greatest danger a cop faces comes in the form of day-to-day encounters with emotionally disturbed, highly intoxicated people. Those experiences can wear a cop down, grinding on his own emotions and psyche. Prolonged exposure to the worst of people and people at their worst can soon make him believe that the world is a sewer. That police officer’s reality is a common thread throughout Work’s crime fiction books. Following his graduation from high school, Work studied music and became a professional performer, conductor and teacher. Life made a sudden, unexpected turn when, one afternoon in 1976, his cousin, who eventually became the Chief of the Ontario, California, Police Department, talked him into riding along during a patrol shift. The musician was hooked into becoming a police officer. After working for two years as a reserve officer in Southern California and in Boulder, Colorado, he joined the Longmont, Colorado Police Department. Work served there for seven years, investigating crimes as a patrolman, detective and patrol sergeant. In 1989 he joined the Adams County, Colorado Sheriff’s Office, where he soon learned that locking a criminal up inside a jail or prison does not put him out of business. As a sheriff’s detective he investigated hundreds of crimes, including eleven contract murder conspiracies which originated “inside the walls”. While serving on the Adams County North Metro Gang Task Force and as a member of the Colorado Security Threat Intelligence Network Group (STING), Work designed a seminar on how a criminal’s mind formulates his victim selection strategy. Over a period of six years he taught that class in sheriff’s academies and colleges throughout Colorado. He saw the world of crime both inside the walls and out on the streets. His final experiences in the criminal law field were with the Colorado State Public Defender’s Office, where for nearly two years he investigated felonies from the defense side of the Courtroom. Twenty-two years of observing human nature at its worst, combined with watching some profound changes in America’s culture and political institutions, provided plenty of material for his first three books. A self-published author, he just finished writing his tenth thriller.
