Obama Birth Record A Forgery: Arpaio Report – OpEd


During a press conference held Thursday in Maricopa County, Arizona, the man known as “America’s Toughest Sheriff” by millions of Americans announced the findings of his half-year investigation of President Barack Obama’s birth records.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio said, “A six month long investigation conducted by my cold case posse has lead me to believe there is probable cause to believe that President Obama’s long-form birth certificate released by the White House on April 27, 2011, is a computer-generated forgery. I do not believe that it is a scan of an original 1961 paper document, as represented by the White House when the long-form birth certificate was made public.”

According to Arpaio’s press statement, this is the principle preliminary finding of a six-month on-going Sheriff’s Cold Case Posse law enforcement investigation into the authenticity of Obama’s birth certificate and his eligibility to be president.

One member of President Obama’s defense team fighting accusations of ineligibility, attorney Michael Jablonsky, claims, “An effort to harass the President continues with qualification challenges filed across the country. Challengers ignore procedural and evidentiary requirements because their claims are without merit, based on fantasy, and offered in pursuit of a political agenda.”

Jablonsky is part of an army of lawyers who are challenging court cases across the nation investigating claims that Obama was not a born citizen of the United States.

Unlike conspiracy theorists or political operatives, Sheriff Arpaio noted that he undertook the investigation as an unbiased third party who wished to “go wherever the investigation leads.”

While being the target of investigations by the Obama Administration — including Attorney General Eric Holder — and being stripped by Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano of his authority to enforce immigration law, Sheriff Arpaio received numerous requests from individuals and groups such as the Arizona Tea Party to conduct an investigation of Obama. Arpaio claims the Obama investigation was not about politics but a response to complaints his office has received from concerned Maricopa County residents.

Rachel Alexander, former attorney with the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office and a friend to the Law Enforcement Examiner, has often praised Arpaio’s crimefighting philosophy and “outside the box” strategies to make Maricopa the safest county in Arizona.

Alexander and Arpaio, have been under attack by Democrats and leftist organizations who regularly make questionable complaints regarding the two admitted conservatives. Alexander is the publisher of the Internet political commentary magazine The Intellectual Conservative.

Arpaio’s special investigators — former law enforcement officers and criminal prosecutors — advised the veteran Sheriff that the alleged forgers committed two crimes: First, they created a fraudulent document which the White House characterized, knowingly or unknowingly, as an officially produced governmental birth record; And second, they fraudulently presented the birth document to the residents of Maricopa County and to the American public as “proof positive” of President Obama’s authentic 1961 Hawaii long-form birth certificate.

During the six-month-long investigation and after having developed probable cause to believe the long-form birth certificate is a computer-generated forgery, investigators began examining other evidence of President Obama’s life history including President Obama’s Selective Service (Military draft card) which is most likely also a forgery, as revealed by an examination of the postal date stamp on the document, Arpaio’s preliminary report indicates.

“To quell the popular idea that Obama was actually born outside the United States, we examined the Records of Immigration and Naturalization Service cards routinely filled out by airplane passengers arriving on international flights that originated outside the United States in the month of August 1961. Those records are housed at the National Archives in Washington, D.C. Interestingly, records from the days surrounding Obama’s birth, August 1, 1961 to August 7, 1961 are missing. This is the only week in 1961 were these immigration cards cannot be found,” explained the outspoken Sheriff.

Citizens Petitioned Sheriff to Commence Obama Probe

In August 2011, 250 residents of Maricopa County requested through a signed petition that Sheriff Arpaio undertake an investigation into Barack Obama’s birth records and the legality of his holding the office of the President of the United States.

The citizens — many of whom were also Tea Party members — stated in their petition 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 have been compromised.

According to Sheriff Arpaio’s statement, he agreed to accept the petition and he assigned the Obama investigation to his “Cold Case Posse” at no expense to the tax payers.

The Sheriff’s Cold Case Posse, consisting of former law enforcement officers and lawyers with law enforcement experienced, spoke to dozens of people and examined hundreds of documents. The investigators also took numerous sworn statements from witnesses throughout the world, according to Sheriff Arpaio.

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.

“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 this President was born in Hawaii, or in the United States for that matter, as he and the White House have consistently asserted,” Arpaio said.

    Maybe the good sherriff should concentrate on being sherriff and not pretending to be a federal investigator. The idea that a podunk sherriff has gotten together a posse to investigate the President of the United States is not only laughable but oddly quaint. Maybe he should check out whether man walked on the moon or, better yet, something closer to home like Area 51.

    The good sheriff is acting on behalf of the citizens of Maricopa County. The birth certificate was posted on the White House website to represent Obama’s authentic proof of birthplace and citizenship for display to the American people, which includes the residents of Maricopa County. If the BC is a forgery – the citizens of Maricopa County have been defrauded.

    Instead of attacking the messenger perhaps it’s time for all good Americans to come to the aid of their County and to actually examine the evidence. The forensic evidence appears to show that both Obama’s BC and Selective Service Card have been doctored and forged. The scientific evidence is damn convincing to those who understand the workings of modern technology.

    So focus on the EVIDENCE and stop attacking the messenger. This is a VERY serious matter.

      Perhaps you need to read the information on “Tony” below to know that this Sheriff is about wasting taxpayers money with investigations that are not his responsibility.

    Arpaio’s investigation is a joke. How did Obama’s pregnant 17 year old mother fly from Hawaii to Africa in 1961 without a US passport? Maybe if Arpaio investigates this issue, he will figure out why there’s no record that she entered the US on an airplane coming back. Maybe it is as simple as “she never left Hawaii.” That would explain why there are no records of her coming back into the US with a newborn baby (who also would have had to have immigration papers and a passport to get into the US on an airplane in 1961). This story just proves that Arpaio really is a lunatic. If he really is investigating this issue, and these are his conclusions, he has no business being in law enforcement. Thank you for writing this column to expose what a kook Arpaio really is.

    Sheriff Arpiao is the only one with the guts to do the investigation. You hate the messenger so you are completely ignoring the merits of the investigation and the EVIDENCE!

    Sheriff Arpiao didn’t say Obama was born in a foreign country. He only said that there is probable cause to believe his birth certificate and selective service card are forgeries. Fakes. Phonies. And he made that statement based on solid scientific forensic EVIDENCE. The same type of EVIDENCE that would be used in a court of law prove certain legal documents are not authentic.

    Your name calling and vitriol won’t change that.

    Again – stop avoiding the EVIDENCE. Your diversions are very telling.

    Most Americans do not want their President using a fake birth certificate and want to know why he would do that.

    Ignore all of the stories about obama and his legality to be president. Focus on one fact, is the birth certificate “picture” on the whitehouse website a forgery? If so, why, if not, why does the evidence say it is a fake?

    Be objective people, not reactive.

    Sheriff Arpaio has found that the week from August 1st to 7th is missing in the INS immigration records.
    Just like Dr Jerome Corsi had found that the birth records in Mombasa had been “tampered with” for the period, indicating “criminal interference”.

    Everyone who has ever scanned an official document could conclude, within the hour which followed its release, that the image presented as a “Obama’s birth certificate” on April 27, 2001 was a forgery. Sheriff Arpaio has only made official what everyone already knew
    (including his fraudulent Selective service registration, which made use of his stolen Social security number).

    The Arpaio report said the hunt for airline passenger flight manifests for 1961 for foreign flights landing in Honolulu was an attempt to see if Obama’s mother returned at that time.

    “The idea was that if Barack Obama had been born in Kenya, or any other location outside the United States, there should be a passenger record of the airline flight on which she, a new mother, returned to Hawaii with her newly born infant son,” the report said.

    But “to date, investigators have not been able to locate the relevant airline passenger flight manifests for 1961.”

    What was found were records of cards the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service required all passengers – including both U.S. citizens and foreign citizens – to fill out and file with passport control when arriving in Honolulu from a foreign city of origin.

    The report said, “Microfilm records of INS cards for passengers arriving in New York on foreign files in 1961 have been found in the National Archives only recently; consequently these records have not yet been examined. Microfilm records of INS cards for passengers arriving in Honolulu on foreign files originating around the Pacific rim in 1961 have been examined at the National Archives in Washington, D.C.”

    The microfilms that were found for the time period include “NARA Record Group A3573, Reel 184, INA records from July 28, 1961 through Aug. 7, 1961″ and “NARA Record Group A3573, Reel 185, INA records from Aug. 8, 1961 through Aug. 12, 1961.”

    However, “Remarkably, all INS records for the week of Obama’s birth, Aug. 1 – Aug. 7, 1961, were missing from the end of Reel 184 and were not discovered anywhere on Reel 185, or any other microfilm reel in the record group,” the report said.

    “The National Archives confirmed in a letter written on National Archives stationary that the INS records for foreign flights arriving in Hawaii during the week of Obama’s birth were missing, not only on the microfilm reels examined, but also in the primary database itself,” the report said.
