Birther Looking for Joe Arpaio Treatment From Florida Sheriff Over Obama's Birth Certificate

birthcert.jpg
cynical-c.com
I found it, guys. We can all go home now.
Birther-ism apparently isn't dead, as Jerome Corsi -- head bullshitter of the Obama "fake birth certificate" movement -- has still found enough brain-dead people to believe that the president is a Muslim from Indonesia.

In Arizona, Stephen Lemons -- the Feathered Bastard of our sister paper in the desert, Phoenix New Times -- confirmed that Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio assigned members of his "Cold Case Posse" to investigate the legitimacy of Obama's birth certificate, which was released by the White House in April.

Now, thanks to the Tea Party group Sarasota Patriots, Corsi will be in Southwest Florida on Wednesday to feed his conspiracy theory to his new pals, and he's reportedly meeting with another sheriff to get the same reaction as he did out of Arpaio.

Who exactly that Florida sheriff is seems to be a secret, as Corsi wouldn't drop a name during a brief phone conversation with the Pulp, but he'll apparently let us know who it is at some point.

We'd suspect that a Sarasota group hosting an event in Sarasota would imply that it's Sarasota County Sheriff Tom Knight, although an employee of the sheriff's public-relations crew says it's not him.

Lee County Sheriff Mike Scott -- who got quite a bit of attention for "playing the 'Hussein' card" by referring to the president by his full name at a Sarah Palin rally in 2008 -- tells the Pulp that it's definitely not him meeting with Corsi.

Even if Corsi were to schmooze him, Scott apparently doesn't want to join Arpaio on the cover of Globe magazine.

"I am aware of numerous investigations prior and present regarding the validity of President Obama's birth certificate, and I see no reason to dedicate resources to duplicative efforts," Scott says.

If you've already read all the research on Bigfoot and aliens, here's a few of the "arguments" presented in Corsi's book, which is constantly pimped out on the website he writes for, World Net Daily:

Obama was born a dual citizen of the United Kingdom and the United States, a circumstance the Constitution's framers considered an iron-clad roadblock to the presidency.

As a boy, Obama was officially registered in school as a Muslim and Indonesian citizen, another barrier to U.S. natural-born citizenship.

The press and blogosphere widely reported that Obama was born at Queen's Medical Center in Honolulu -- before deciding he was born across town at Kapi'olani Women's and Children's Hospital.

The Congressional Research Service, a public policy arm of Congress, officially admits no one in the government ever vetted Obama's constitutional eligibility.

In preparation for the 2012 election, more than a dozen states are considering legislation to force all presidential candidates to prove they are constitutionally qualified before they can be placed on that state's ballot.

Why wouldn't an elected law-enforcement official want his name associated with that?

We'll give you an update when Corsi reveals who it is he's supposed to be meeting.

SMD you have got to be the dumbest person (can't say alive it doesn't sound like you are) on earth.     Nobody vetted this Usurper. If they did, WHERE IS THE PROOF, I DIDN'T SEE IT, DID THEY SHOW IT TO YOU????   THERE IS NO PROOF HE WAS EVER VETTED YOU STUPID DORK.  A fake birth certificate and covered up records don't do it for me.  GO DRINK YOU KOOL AID.

We won the election and now these sore losers will continue to spew your hate with lies (They hate and can’t debate). The way our court system works is that you get a competent lawyer (Strike One), verifiable facts (Strike Two) and present them to a judge, if the facts are real and not half baked internet lies, then, and only then, you proceed to trial (Strike three). The Birthers seem to be having a problem with their so call facts (internet lies) that they present. Let’s face it no reasonable man or woman will go along with you until you guys win a case, but until then, you will continue to appear dumb, crazy or racist, or maybe all three. You guys are a bunch of sore losers and feeding on your own is still foolish AKA Marco Rubio.

I'll give you 10-1 odds that Matthew Hendley voted for Obama in 2008 and currently supports his re-election in 2012.  He sure is familiar with Alinsk's Rule 5.

If Obama was on the level he wouldn't have spent nearly $3 million to hide his bona fides from the American people.  And he certainly wouldn't have released bogus electronic images of documents he "claims" represent his birth certificate.

Sealed documents:  http://theobamafile.com/_eligi...

Eligibility lawyer payments:  http://theobamafile.com/_assoc...

Obama's bogus "short form" birth certificate:  http://theobamafile.com/ObamaC...

Obama's bogus "long form" birth certificate:  http://www.theobamafile.com/_e...

And notice I responded to Hendley's absurd article without any ad hominem attacks -- just ther facts ma'am.

This article is so bad and so full name calling and ad hominem attacks that it does not qualify as worthy of publication.  In fact I wonder if the author is related to this group:Top anti-'birther' confirmed to be ex-Fannie Mae chief - If there is nothing to the eligibility issue why are they fighting so hard to keep it quiet? http://thesteadydrip.blogspot....NEW YORK – A top Democrat, apparently operating with the full approval and cooperation of the president, has been directing a team of up to 100 who are paid to publish disinformation on a wide variety of websites to discredit "birthers," according to anti-Obama researchers. The radical supporters of the president, known as Obama robots, or "OBOTs" for short, have confirmed their White House-appointed ring leader is Democratic Party operative James A. Johnson, the former chairman of Fannie Mae

Anyone who believes that the president isn't a citizen must also believe that Bush wanted him to become president by completely failing to have the CIA, FBI, NSA or whichever alphabet soup agency you care to name do a, whatdoyoucallit, BACKGROUND CHECK on Obama which would have guaranteed his party remaining in power had the (ridiculous) suspicions been true. And please, spare me the 'he was almost out of office and didn't care' crap. So if you want to keep nursing your stillborn, paranoid psychosis on message boards and talk radio or wherever the hell you people go to babble about this non-issue knock yourself out, as long as it keeps you off the street and out of the way.

Ridicule is not proof of anything except the intellectual capacity of the ridiculer.  Provide a single piece of empirical evidence that the documents posted on the White House web site are not the fakes Doug Vogt's examination shows them to be.  The question is no longer just about Obama's birth, it is about forgery.  You could not get a passport using the Photoshop documents the President has shown us.

Is the Pulp going to cover how the Broward Republicans changed their own rules to specifically exclue a Muslim at their meeting last night? They were calling this guy, who's been a Republican for 10 years, a terrorist! Disgusting! http://www.mcclatchydc.com/201...

I disagree.

I am a Socialist, and while I lived in downtown DC, I used to walk right in front of the White House North Lawn. Sometimes, on a dare, I'd even journey down the east side -- on way to Old Ebbit Grill.

The POTUS was in Indonesia because his mother married an Indonesian national who was aiding the U.S. in overthrowing a communist movement in that nation. The POTUS is a 3rd generation member of the CIA. Investigative reporter Wayne Madsen has written about all of this in great detail.

Anyone who thinks that some "outsider", some radical Marxist, socialist, etc: could get anywhere close to the White House doesn't have a fucking clue as to who rules this nation.

What a bunch of naive morons.

I pray that your Florida Sheriff (whoever he is) takes this on and pulls the damned embarrasing headlines from us in Arizona.  Our birthers need to get back to spotting UFO's as our number of reports are down since the birth certificate thing became vogue.

I thought this inane stupidity was over already?  Do these idiots not realize that to just run for president, they run background checks?  They make sure of those pesky questions of where the prospect was born, an if he is an American.  If these morons would have paid attention in the most basic of social studies courses, they would know this.At this point it at best, stupidity.  More likely its just insanity.

Linda..whats up with the cool aid talk.Don't start this racial undertone talk,like go drink your coolaid.They could give you tons of proof that this president is legit,but that would not be enough ,because being brainwash and obvious a blind follower of the blind,nothing will convince you of the truth,not even god himself could convince someone whom is so full of hatred toward this presidents skin color and other like him.Oh,and don't give that,"my best friend is black"to coward behind.You can say it to us,but can you honestly look christ in the face and say that your hatred for this president has nothing to do with his skin color?Theirs a rumbling,and justice is approching and those whom waller in deception,deceit,hatemongering,and all types of unchristain acts toward his fellow man will face this justice,and may god have mercy on their radical souls.

Kool Aid.....yuck......Coke Zero is much better.  Tastes like real Coke and no calories.  And as to Obama's vetting I am certain Hillary's camp was very thorough - and it was one of her supporter's who is the Father of Birtherism, Phil Berg, a life long Democrat.  Yep, Phil Berg from PA.  When Berg could not find any "dirt" on Obama he just made it up - let's see... a number of Kenyan birth certificates have been for sale on Ebay.  Even has a cute little footprint on it.  Just a little problem...... the  document states the baby was born in the Coast General Hosp. in Mombassa, Kenya......... just an itsy bitsy little problem.   In 1961, the city of Mombassa was in a country named Zanzibar.  In 1963 Mombassa was ceded to Kenya.  Oh, those little details - how often they bite the Birthers in the buttocks.

lmfao worldnetdaily...the best part is how there's like 5 different birther arguments that they just swap between w/out a shred of recognition about how they contradict each other.

okay so proof, the president released his birth certificate right after that phony controversy. so, what's your point.

Please read Article 1 section 4 of the USC....it's titled the Full Faith and Credit Clause of the USC.....in short it states that all states and the District of Columbia must accept the vital documents of all the other States and DC.  The Obama birth records are legit.  The President is a Natural Born / Native Born  Citizen.  End of story.

actually for me ridicule is proof that i'm talking to a racist POS of who entertains whackjob conspiracy theories to try to derail democratic elections because there's a black man in charge. if you're the one birther in the world that isn't a fascist neo-nazi piece of shit than congratulations but you're still hanging out with a bunch of other fascist neo-nazi pieces of shit and therefore i hate you anyway.

P.S.   Incidentally, all of the available intelligence indicates that he was born in Hawaii. His parents met at the University of Hawaii while taking a "russian language class".  (Hello...McFly)

Mama Obama used to work for the Ford Foundation and US AID, both well known CIA front organizations. Her boss was Peter Geithner, the father of Timothy Geithner.

You see, it is "their thing", so stop wasting your time with this nonsense about the POTUS being some outsider.

Only a moron with no understanding of how the world works could ever believe such nonsense.

What you don't seem to comprehend is it doesn't matter where he was born. The constitution has long been discarded by the PTB that rule this nation.

The point is, he is not this leftist/marxist/muslim caricature that the morons on the Right have depicted him to be. He is one of them, an Establishment figure.

And only one of them could get anywhere close to the White House.

Holy shit -- that is some disturbing stuff.  Thanks for linking this, as the Repubs are becoming more and more publically and proactively hateful.  Booing gay service men, cheering the death penalty, cheering in favor of letting people with no medical insurance die...  I must admit, the in fighting and lack of a real candidate is funny to watch, but I fear a sense of rising in the neonazi, hatemongers atmosphere with the repugnitans...

It seems this teabagger base is able to pull string on the puppet Repub followers at will.  Anyone who looks at West as a leader of the party or leader of anyone for that matter, needs to have their head examined.  That guy is a complete, one term crackpot.  He Kauffman should tie themselves to iron crosses and jump in the ocean.

They (whoever they is supposed to be) do not run background checks.

The vetting of political candidates is done by the press, and in 2008, the media waa actively campaigning for Obama.

Who is the moron demonstrating stupidity now?

Who, exactly, are the THEY who ran background checks?  In fact, there is no ironclad documentation of any rigorous investigation into BHO's background.  There are no school records, no passport records,  E-Verify flags his social security number.  Do a bit of study and find all you can about this man and see how little that is.

Actually, what is kind of troubling to me is the document you download directly from the White House Web site.

It's a PDF file.  No big deal right? But it's a PDF file with layers...  And an altered color palette. If you look at the layers, you will see they are mucking around with fields on the form.

I just find that odd and I am a lefty.

Here's what I just did

I downloaded, directly from the White House, the Obama BC long formOpened it up in Illustrator CS 5.5

http://idisk.me.com/chazsteven...

What's odd if is you disabled one of the layer groups, the date accepted field disappears and you see a "halo" -- which usually means to me some form of image editing and aliasing

http://idisk.me.com/chazsteven...

What's even weirder, if you turn off the bottom group layer, you find this:

http://idisk.me.com/chazsteven...

And the "r" in Barack disappears, as does the signatures and the dates for the doc really jump out as altered.

Now, before you think I am a birther, nothing could be further from the truth.  Nor am I a righty.  I am about as left as they come.
