Joe Arpaio: Obama Documents Are Forgeries – Press Attacks The Sheriff, Ignores The Hard Evidence

Diana West devoted her weekly column to a summation of facts and surrounding circumstances in a rather controversial and important criminal investigation that is ongoing in Arizona.  She asks the question, why are the media and political leaders not covering it?  Hopefully, the readers of the 130 or so newspapers in which her column appears will sit up this weekend and take notice – that is to say if the editors of those newspapers have the courage to print it.  Some of her editors have refused to publish her columns when they dealt with this particular issue.  It is verboten territory.

So, I just spent two hours (well, a good hour and twenty minutes, anyway) watching and listening to the press conference held within the last few days by Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his lead Cold Case Posse Investigator, Mike Zullo.  The substance of the conference was some pretty powerful forensic evidence, presented step by step, which led the posse to believe that the long form birth certificate, released last April by The White House as a bona fide credential proving Barack Obama’s natural born citizenship, and his Selective Service registration card, are both forgeries.  Here’s the link to the video of the entire press conference.  You can decide for yourself if the material should be troubling – not only to the people of Arizona and the United States, but to the American Press Corps.

As a retired law enforcement officer I’ve followed this fascinating investigation closely for over three years now.  The most disturbing issue in watching the video of the press conference was the nature of the questions posed to the Sheriff by the members of the media who were present, following the evidentiary presentation.  There were several attempts to bait Arpaio into accusing the President of having committed the crimes – and living a lie.  One reporter, unidentified, began to argue that this issue has been debated, investigated and resolved all over the country – ergo, why should anyone give much weight to a County Sheriff in Arizona.  I could detect anger and utter panic in some of their voices – in a couple of cases bordering on hysteria.  They don’t want to hear this and, judging by what has transpired since the conference in the nation’s newpapers and televsion news broadcasts, they’re not going to report it.

Arpaio stuck to the facts of the document examination, which clearly reveal that the supposed bona fides are, indeed, apparent forgeries – and that he does not know who actually committed the crimes.  But he intends to find out who did it.

What is most troubling is that the American Press Corps is Hell bent on running interference for, and covering up for, some very serious felonies that have changed the course of the nation’s history.  That, ladies and gentlemen, is truly astonishing.

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.

      1) Where is that letter you say the director of health in HI sent to someone? Was she under oath? I’d like to read that letter. So, give me a link to it.

      2) There would be no raised seal to be felt on a photocopy of any document. And if you watched the evidence presentation you should already know that it is the seal, itself, on the “original” that is primarily at issue, and makes the document void.

      3) Which reporter photographed the document at the White House?

      4) This is the first in-depth law enforcement investigation anyone has done into the authenticity of the President’s documents. You want me to believe that a reporter’s purported photograph rises to the level of credibility of what the cops in AZ have done in examining these items? Give me a break. During my 20+ years in law enforcement, I was a white collar crime/forgery cop for over a year. This whole thing reeks to high Heaven of fraud. If that HI health director, and I’m assuming you mean Janet Okubo, is telling the truth, they should have no problem turning the microfilm birth records over to the Arpaio team for inspection.

      And how is it that the INS records from Hawaii during the week of Obama’s birthday are missing from the National Archives? That doesn’t make you curious? Get yourself a press card and join the crowd.

    Re: “And how is it that the INS records from Hawaii during the week of Obama’s birthday are missing from the National Archives? ”

    The National Archives have explained that it was a glitch during microfilming.

    HOWEVER, Were you under the impression that there were direct flights from Kenya to Hawaii in 1961??? The answer is NO, THERE WERE NO SUCH FLIGHTS.

    So, the way to get to Kenya was via Los Angeles and New York and London, and the return would be the same way. And the INS check in would be in NEW YORK, and the New York files are not missing and do not show that Obama or his mother entered the country in 1961.

    Moreover, be real smart, imagine that you were a Bush official checking on whether Obama was born in Kenya before the election, and you found that INS files were missing.

    What would you go? Why you would check whether or not there was a US visa or a US passport issued to Obama in Kenya or whether he was entered on his mother’s US passport in Kenya. And where would the files be? In MANY places. In particular they would be under the files of applications for documents in Kenya and documents granted in Kenya in 1961. So, not only would there have been an INS record of Obama arriving in New York, if he really were born in Kenya, there also would be records of Obama receiving a US travel document.

    But there are no such records. There are also no Kenyan records. No records of Obama’s mother having arrived or departed Kenya in 1961, and no records of Obama’s birth in Kenya (there have been some forgeries, but they are all stupid). And there are no US travel records either from the INS or the State Department.

    Re:

    Answer: Okay, no problem. The director of health’s letter is the third one down. No she was not under oath. The Republican candidates for president have not shown their birth certificates at all. Three Republican officials in Hawaii and the current director of health have stated that Obama’s birth certificate exists in the files and that the facts on the short form and long-form birth are accurate. This is vastly more than what the Republicans have shown. Yet birthers keep dreaming their dreams.

    2) There would be no raised seal to be felt on a photocopy of any document. And if you watched the evidence presentation you should already know that it is the seal, itself, on the “original” that is primarily at issue, and makes the document void.

    Answer: In fact the raised seal is NOT on the original in the files. That is why it is not an official document. The original in the files is not on security paper either. The official copy is the official physical copy—long-form or short-form—which is on security paper and the seal is affixed (on the back, where it is supposed to be). Both the official physical copies of Obama’s short form and long form have the official seals on them.

    3) Which reporter photographed the document at the White House?

    Here is the photographic image of the physical copy of the long-form birth certificate that was passed around in the White House Press room, and the statement of the reporter who photographed it that she had felt the raised seal:

    Re: 4) This is the first in-depth law enforcement investigation anyone has done into the authenticity of the President’s documents.

    Answer: The birther posse was done by a Sheriff who hates Obama. It used WND’s “experts”—who have not proven their expertise and certainly have not proven that they are objective.

    Re: “You want me to believe that a reporter’s purported photograph rises to the level of credibility of what the cops in AZ have done in examining these items? “

    Answer; the cops in AZ did not even call the officials in Hawaii to ask them if there was anything wrong with Obama’s birth certificate. For a forgery to have occurred, the facts on the birth certificate must have changed from the one in the files or there was no birth certificate sent at all. The images of the Obama birth certificate are on line, and yet the AZ posse did not even call the officials to confirm that they sent the birth certificate and whether or not the facts on it were different? NOT EVEN called. The reporter’s statement was in addition to that of the Director of Health of Hawaii and the Republican officials who confirmed the facts on Obama’s birth certificates twice, and the birth notices in the Hawaii newspapers, and there is even a witness who wrote home after being told of Obama’s birth (to her father, named Stanley, about the unusual event that day of a child being born to a woman named Stanley):

    Here is the first of the confirmations by the officials in Hawaii.

    http://www.kitv.com/r/17860890/detail.html

    Notice where it says that there is an original birth certificate filed. Well, in 1961 foreign birth certificates, even those from other states, could not be filed in Hawaii. So the birth certificate in Obama’s files must be a Hawaii birth certificate.

    Here is the second of the confirmations by the officials in Hawaii.

    http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/2009-07-27-obama-hawaii_N.htm

    Notice where it says that the document in the files VERIFIES that Obama was born in Hawaii. So, not only is there an official Hawaiian birth certificate in the files, but it says right on it that Obama was born in Hawaii. Hawaii has never allowed the Department of Health to issue a birth document of any kind that says on it that anyone was born in Hawaii unless there was proof that the child was born in Hawaii, and that is what the officials in Hawaii have confirmed twice.

    And here is the confirmation by the former governor of Hawaii, Linda Lingle, a Republican, that says that Obama was born in Hawaii, in Kapiolani Hospital

    http://voices.washingtonpost.com/right-now/2010/05/hawaii_gov_lingle_answers_the.html

    And here is the statement of a witness who recalls being told of Obama’s birth in Hawaii, in Kapiolani Hospital, in 1961:

    Here are the birth notices of Obama’s birth in the Hawaii newspapers in 1961.

    • John L. Work says:

      Okay. Let’s see where this investigation goes. None of anything you’ve provided means anything, unless it’s told under oath, either in a depostion, affidavit, or sworn testimony in a Court of Law. That’s the only way people have an incentive to tell the truth – or be charged with perjury. I watched Arpaio’s evidence. It seems credible to me. You believe what you want to believe.

        It has been THREE WEEKS since Sheriff Joe’s press second press conference, and nothing has happened. NOTHING. Nothing at all.

        No member of Congress (and there are 535 of them) has called for an investigation. Not even Rush Limbaugh wants to discuss it.

        John McCain, who is one of the Senators of Arizona as well as being the former Republican candidate for president, has recently called the Sheriff crazy. The CONSERVATIVE secretary of state of Arizona, who did his own investigation into Obama’s place of birth, has accepted Hawaii’s confirmation that Obama was born there, and he has not changed his mind following Sheriff Joe’s press conference.

        Could the explanation be that the whole world is part of the plot? Or, more likely, is it that they believe the birth certificate, and the officials in Hawaii, and the Index Data, and the birth notices in the Health Bureau Statistics section of the newspapers——and they do not believe the sheriff.

        They have good reason to NOT believe the sheriff:

  3. ehancock says:

    The birth notices in the Hawaii newspapers in 1961 are facts, and they exist in many microfilm files. There is no proof that Obama’s mother traveled outside of the USA in 1961, so the notion that Obama was born in a foreign country is far-fetched. The officials in Hawaii may, of course, be lying–but there are a lot of them, from both parties, and their first statement confirming the facts was made before the 2008 election and they are Republicans.

    The Sheriff’s posse used WND’s “experts”–who have not proven their expertise, much less their impartiality. And the posse did not even call the officials in Hawaii to ask them if they indeed sent a birth certificate to Obama and whether or not the facts on the image of the birth certificate that is on line is different from what Hawaii sent. The posse DID NOT EVEN ASK.

    • John L. Work says:

      There’s no need for hysteria. The investigation will either end up in Congress, in a Court of law or in the trash. We just have to wait now and see what happens next.

      • EllenHancock says:

        The investigation is in the trash. Nobody believes it.

      • John L. Work says:

        Hi, Ellen. Thanks for reading my blog and taking the time to comment. I know no one’s interested in Arpaio’s evidence, except for a few of us old retired cops who’ve done actual forgery investigations. And when it comes down to it, I’m really nobody.

        But, look, Ellen, if all of us who took the time to examine the evidence are just plain crazy like Arpaio is, and the evidence really is trash, then you and everyone else in the world have nothing to worry about. So, don’t pay any attention to me or Arpaio. I don’t think anything’s going to come of the investigation, seriously. I don’t believe whatever evidence Arpaio has gathered up will ever be examined in a Court of Law, either in front of a judge in a suppression hearing or in front of a jury at trial. It’s not gonna hapen.

        So, you’re very right about that. In that, I agree with you. I don’t believe Mr. Obama or any of his supporters has a thing to worry about. And I do thank you again for reading along with me.

        Very best wishes,

        John L. Work

    Mitt Romney’s Mexican father, hmmmmm…….Are the simple minded “BIRTHERS”, going to ask Romney for his birth certificate? We all know this was never about a birth certificate, if it was then these same people would be asking Romney for his. It’s about small minded people who hate African Americans and do not have the brains to review a President’s policy so they make something up.

    Lets be clear none of these dullards have won a case in the “U.S. Courts”, maybe in their simple minds (if they have any) but not in our “U.S. Courts”, so unless Birthers/ teabaggers, whatever you want to be called, win a court case, we will continue to see as dullards, liars or racist or maybe all three. Deal with that baby!

  6. Montana says:

    Win a case in the “U.S. Courts”, then we can talk, short of that, yup we understand each other!
