Will we ever find out if Obama was eligible?
— An article published on Wednesday by the Bay Area News Group reported that former Maricopa County Sheriff Joseph M. Arpaio will be a guest at a fundraiser hosted by the Central Valley Republicans in Fresno on Friday evening.
Arpaio reportedly gave an interview to the news organization in which he said, “Don’t think I’m going fishing. I am not going away,” spurring speculation that he might plan to seek political office.
After retiring from his position as Arizona DEA supervisor in 1992, Arpaio ran for Maricopa County sheriff, an office he won and to which he was re-elected five times. On November 8, 2016, he lost his bid for a seventh term to Democrat Paul Penzone, who pledged to reverse many of Arpaio”s “controversial” policies which included an outdoor “tent city” for jail inmates, a female chain gang, and strict enforcement of federal immigration law.
The article recounted that Arpaio received a presidential pardon on August 25 after U.S. District Court Judge Susan Bolton found him guilty of misdemeanor criminal contempt following a Justice Department prosecution announced days before early voting began last October.
In a recent interview with another outlet, Arpaio claimed that his prosecution did not stem from the “racial profiling” allegation made in a 2007 lawsuit which gave rise to the contempt finding.
As The Post & Email reported on Wednesday, Trump’s pardon of Arpaio is undergoing challenge from what other sources have described as Arpaio’s “political opponents.”
While the writer, Casey Tolan, reported that many area Republican leaders have shunned Friday’s event, tickets for the event are sold out. He also wrote:
In an interview on Tuesday afternoon, Arpaio, who lost re-election in November after 24 years in office, said the Fresno event was an example of his renewed “mission” to fight for conservative ideas around the country. That includes, he said, his continuing (and widely debunked) effort to prove that former President Barack Obama’s birth certificate is fake.
The article makes no mention of the 5+-year investigation Arpaio delegated to his “Cold Case Posse,” which reported at three separate press conferences that the “long-form” birth certificate image posted on the White House website — at Donald Trump’s public insistence — was determined to be a “computer-generated forgery.”
As The Post & Email has reported extensively, the mainstream media has attempted to posit that any suggestion that the image is fraudulent is ridiculous, far-fetched, and the fuel of a “conspiracy theory.” However, both lead investigator Mike Zullo and Arpaio have stood firm on their discoveries, which Zullo reported in December are supported by two forensic analysts following their own independent scrutiny of the image.
Almost to a person, mainstream media reporters have used the term “debunked” when mentioning the results of the investigation while at the same time avoiding the presentations of detailed evidence provided by Zullo on March 1, 2012; July 17, 2012; and December 15, 2016.
Reporters are undoubtedly aware that not only is the forgery of a government document a felony, but that Article II, Section 1, clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution requires that the president be a “natural born Citizen.”
While there is controversy over the exact meaning of the term of art employed by the Framers, virtually all Americans understand that a naturalized U.S. citizen is not the equivalent of “natural born.”
Prior to the launching of the investigation, a number of mainstream reports had stated that Obama was born in Kenya, or, alternatively, in Indonesia. In 1991, Obama’s then-literary agent wrote in a promotional pamphlet that he was “born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.”
While former Hawaii Department of Health (HDOH) Director Dr. Chiyome Fukino told CNN in an interview that there is no doubt that Obama was born in the Aloha State, former Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie said he was unable to locate a paper birth record for Obama within the agency’s archives despite his stated determination to do so in early 2011.
At approximately the same time, Trump was raising the question as to why the White House had not released Obama’s detailed birth certificate to prove that he was eligible for the presidency.
One the image was posted at whitehouse.gov, however, it was pronounced a forgery by several graphics experts. Four months later, Arpaio commissioned his investigation, believing that a cursory analysis of the image would “clear the president” and set voters’ minds at ease.
The finding of probable cause of the image’s forgery prompted Zullo to continue his investigation through the end of last year, when Arpaio stated that the evidence would be provided to federal-level authorities.
To the public’s knowledge, neither the FBI nor Congress has launched its own investigation into the findings.
Despite its own refusal to probe the matter, the media has continued to insist that the forgery claim has been “debunked” without citing any authorities or evidence.
In December 2010, a former Army flight surgeon and lieutenant colonel went to military prison after having refused to deploy to Afghanistan because of his questioning of the legitimacy of the Obama birth certificate image. On Tuesday, the trustee of a fund organized to support Dr. Terry Lakin offered nine possible reasons for why no one in Washington, DC has investigated the results of the Arpaio/Zullo probe. Those include “Fear of Vast Social Unrest,” “Fear of a Legal Avalanche,” and others.
Prior to the publication of this article, The Post & Email contacted Tolan by email to ask:
Are you able to say who “debunked” the findings of Arpaio’s investigator(s) that the Obama long-form birth certificate image is a forgery?

"This is the real task before us: to reassert our commitment as a nation to a law higher than our own, to renew our spiritual strength. Only by building a wall of such spiritual resolve can we, as a free people, hope to protect our own heritage and make it someday the birthright of all men." --Ronald Reagan

"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things; the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks nothing worth a war, is worse. A man who has nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety is a miserable creature who has no chance at being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself." John Stuart Mill
"A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government." ~~~George Washington

“A nation that substitutes emotion and empathy for rational thought will eventually digress into the Dark Ages,” Congressman Steve King (R-IA),
INTEGRITY: The highest courage is to dare to be ourself in the face of adversity. Choosing ethics over convenience and truth over popularity means there is never a wrong time to do the right thing.
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies.
The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
They may be more likely to go to Heaven for good intentions yet at the same time likelier to make a Hell of earth. This very kindness stings with intolerable insult. To be “cured” against one’s will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals.~ C. S. Lewis
