Joe Arpaio goes “full birther”: proves fraud

Despite abysmally bad audio coming from the Arpaio press conference in Arizona, it is abundantly clear that Sheriff Joe’s “cold case posse” went “full birther.”  It was also evident that the “instigation” itself was a fraud. They concluded:

The document has failed every test we put it through … a fraud has been committed

Rather than using anybody’s real birth certificate as a “control document” they used a computer-printed document they made as a “control.”  Arpaio’s cold case posse took a image file that they admit is a scan of a computer-generated birth certificate that they created (not an authentic paper certificate of any kind) and compared it to what the White House says is an scan of an original birth certificate, observed optimization differences, and then concluded that their fake is authentic and that the White House certificate is fake. Is it just me, or are we on the Bizarro planet htraE?

The next major point is that the “investigators” ran OCR and optimization against their “control” and concluded that it didn’t optimize the same way seen in the White House certificate. They used a fundamentally different kind of document (computer-printed v. original)  with different software and then concluded that the differences were significant. That is either a mark of ineptitude or fraud.

The speaker stated that their results had been verified by “graphics experts” or  “forensic document examiners” although no such person was identified. Mara Zebest was in the audience, but she is not a forensic document examiner by any definition.

It was also stated that a “person of interest” had been identified in the birth certificate fraud investigation. [Update: As of the end of Obama’s term on January 20, 2017, the “person of interest” remains unnamed.]

In new information, the Maricopa County “investigators” say that Jerome Corsi looked at National Archives INS records for August 1961. Corsi reported that August 1-8 records were missing. No one, to my knowledge, in Maricopa County verified Corsi’s statement.

A further claim that Obama’s Selective Service application (obtained through FOIA) is also faked was presented. Such claims were debunked long ago, although there maybe some new wrinkles here.

Finally Representative Seel, who sponsored the Arizona Birther Bill, also gave a plug for his bill.

They have affidavits! “I’m not going to give you any names.”

Certainly I am saddened to see crackpot conspiracy theories presented under the guise of official authority. It is a black mark on Maricopa County.

I think every criminal serving time in Arizona jails convicted as the result of an investigation by Joe Arpaio’s office now has grounds for an appeal.

    As a former resident of Maricopa County I’m surprised Arpaio fell for this nonsense. I figured he would waffle.

    The next question is what agency with real law enforcement powers will pick up the investigation. Off the top of my head I can’t think of an Arizona law he could use to justify turning it over to sworn deputies. But then I never thought he would go this far.

    If the birth certificate is fradulent, then Obama has to be aware of that fact. That means that he went along with the incorrect information. So how can you say that you are not accusing Obama of wrongdoing (even if he did not directly alter the document or order it done)?

    Also, can we start gathering petitions with 250 signatures asking Sheriff Joe to investigate various other matters (since that seems to be all he needs to start one)?

    DG – The only way it could make sense is if they were arguing that Obama was fooled like everyone else and honestly believed he was born in Hawaii in 1961. But it is hard to mesh that with the fact that they claim his Selective Service card was created/forged in 2008.

    The claim is that the circular postal date cancel on the form is wrong. NBC used to have on his web site a sampling of registered main from Hawaii and that period that were similar. However the original objection was that the seal said “USPO” (older) rather “USPS.” In this, I guess new, claim, the stamp used a two-digit date instead of 4.

    To me the most important thing is that Sheriff Joe did NOT endorse the two citizen parent stuff. Factual questions about the Birth Certificate are not going very far and are a lot easier to debunk than Sovereign Citizen type crank legal stuff. I have always believed the long form image was a manipulated image, but that does not mean the information on it is false. Plus, an image is an image is an image. An image is NOT a document.

    The selective service stamp thingy is not something I remember seeing before. All in all, it could have been a whole lot worse if the crank legal stuff had gotten the thumbs up.

    You know, I’ve thought about that long and hard. Could it be that obvious? I’ve been thinking maybe alien birth is the better explanation. But which planet? That’s the problem. We’ve got all these sworn affidavits from people who survived alien probes, and just happened to witness Obama’s birth on a spaceship, but which spaceship? Some are green men from Alpha Centauri, others purple women from Mars (go figure). Chartreuse from Europa (Jupiter’s moon) sounds the most likely from what I can tell.

    But maybe you’re right. I could be wrong. Born in a lab in Iran. That would explain a lot, wouldn’t it?

    Computer Forensics 101

    1. Do not investigate the copy of a copy. Make a copy of the original and use hash encryption to prevent tampering.

    2. You use the EXACT same software used to create the “fraud” or else you are just wasting your time.

    3. Document every procedure during the process.

    They are celebrating over there so I said “let me go to “Conspiracy” and see what really happened.

    The most charitable interpretation of today is they were totally mesmerized by Vogt’s presentation of his analysis, and built the whole day around it, tuning out anything like, oh, say a press conference the White House once held where reporters saw, handled and photographed the certified paper documents.

    Or you know, the rest of Vogt’s bibliography.

    In other words, they were conned, and conned but good.

    It reminds me of an incident from the dot-com era that some of you might recall, involving a company called Pixelon. They burst out of nowhere, promising an awesome new video streaming/compression technology that was going to turn the world on its ear. Their most notorious splash was a live concert from Las Vegas that they used to demo their new technology, featuring Kiss, The Dixie Chicks, and a reunion performance by The Who.

    Never mind that in the run-up to the event, some of the company employees were horrified to discover that what the CEO had been demoing was an existing Windows video technology, dressed up in a skin he’d gotten some of the engineers to wrap it with. By then they were all in, and he was still promising that the real technology was almost ready. Real Soon Now.

    So millions of VC dollars were spent, the most awesome party in the history of the dot-com era was thrown, and the actual video stream looked about 5 times worse than Vattelevision.

    Sometime after that, they found out that the CEO had come into town on the run from the law, living in his car, under a completely different name.

    Things kind of went downhill from there.

    That’s how I imagine the posse-cats’ relationship with Vogt and Corsi has gone. I’m just unsure of what stage of the relationship they’re currently in. Deputy Pornstache was definitely into it.

    Yeah, this came across as Corsi simply doing his usual make up claims as he goes along.

    The fact that they just let him go off on his own and report back, without any further validation says it all.

    If you noticed – Corsi was the only one they had speak or throw out the most “out there” allegations (the week of missing data, the nonsense story about a childhood conversation in Bill Ayer’s mom’s yard…)

    Arpiao and even his Cold Posse toady went out of their way to stick to only the PDF and the Selective Service card and stay very CLEAR of all the rest.

    They know this is just about casting aspersions and throwing poo against the wall and hoping something will stick…

    JD Reed March 1, 2012 at 8:11 pm #

    I feel disinclined at the moment to lslog through the Arpaio report. But one thing I haven’t nticed is, what is hegoing about it?
    Is the good sheriffs posse gonna continue to investigate and hope to bring criminal charges? My understanding of the constitution is that the president must be impeached and removed from office before any criminal charges can be laid against him. Is this not so?

    So if the sheriff thinks he has the goods on Mr. Obama, ian’t the proper recipient for his information the Congress of the United States>
    And if he’s talking about criminally charging someone else other than the president, where does he get the authority? Any supposed crime would not have occurred in Maricopa County or Arizona. So again, some other agency wluld be the proper recipient of any such inicriminating evidence.

    The way I see it, the publishing of a frauduilent BC — not that I believe for a millisecond that’s the case — would not be a crime, at least yet, because the publication of this document did not get Mr. Obama on a single ballot, or affect a single lawmaker’s decision to declare Mr. Obama the duly elected president. — because of the timing, of course,

    Can the sheriff’s posse prove that Mr. Orbama got on any state ballot i n 2008 using a fraudulent document? Very much doubt it. Ditto, 2012.

    Of course, the sheer fraudulency of this investigation is underscored by the statement of one of the participants — I don’t recall if I saw that on this site or somewhere else I looked — concerning how the Honolulu newspapers acquired the birth information. The assertion, backed by not a scinitalla of ecvidence that I saw, was that the newspapers just took in and printed whatever was called in. One way that’s disproved is that the two competing newspapers printed the identical birth records. If they just relied on callers, some newsborns’ families would have called one paper but not the other.
    Of course, in the real world of newspapering in those days, the papers wouuld have obtained their birth information from a single authoratative source, in this case, from the news agency that got the records from the State Department of Health, which in turn collected the records from the hospitals and the occasional midwife or family that home-deliivered.
    The reasons are at least three: accuracy, which would be a bit less than 100 percent if the papers had relied on the public to call in their joyful news: efficiient deployment of labor, because a news clerk would work from a single list and could input the names in a single sitting, vs. starting and stopping throughout the day as people called in; and guardiing against being punked by someone who would call in a totally bogus birth announcement.

    Sheriff Joe’s investigation seems to be point to the Hawaii DOH. This is not surprising since Hawaii DOH has fought very hard to prevent the original documents from being seen. (Many birthers believe that Hawaii DOH has no orginal documents for Obama and that any such document or image that has been produced by Obama or Hawaii DOH has been manufactured and is most likely a forgery and a fraud.)

    I left this comment on the CBS News story:

    So Sheriff Joe makes a computer-simulated birth certificate his guy printed off and calls it a “control” and compares to the real birth certificate from the White House and concludes his is genuine and the White House one is fake. John Woodman’s book on the birth certificate has already debunked all of this stuff (which came mostly right out of the pages of the right-wing WorldNetDaily web site). Joe, this is not the Bizarro planet htraE.

    Given the incredible charges raised here, why should we believe Sheriff Joe over President Obama? Why didn’t Arpaio name his “forensic document experts” and give us their credentials? Why didn’t he disclose what optimization software he used so we could see if is the same the White House used and whether the comparison made any sense at all. Why keep secret the names of the people who signed all these supposed affidavits so the news media can check them out?

    Why should we take Jerome Corsi’s word for what was in the National Archives? Was he deputized? Did he sign an affidavit? This guy is a multiple-liar in his books trying to smear Obama.

    Clearly Sheriff Joe has a severe credibility problem on his hand, and an obvious political motivation. I think Ole Joe is the one that should be investigated.

    “In new information, the Maricopa County “investigators” say that Jerome Corsi looked at National Archives INS records for August 1961. Corsi reported that August 1-8 records were missing. No one, to my knowledge, in Maricopa County verified Corsi’s statement.”

    So Corsi believes that Obama was born in Kenya on August 4, and within the next few days his mother flew halfway around the world to get him to Hawaii by August 8? And then Obama got someone at the INS to destroy the records? Really?

    Finally, a small point I actually agree with you on – yes, the insinuations of Sheriff Joe would mostly point towards the HI DOH…as they created the BCs and vouched for their content, their authenticity AND their chain of custody.

    As to the latter point about asking them to “produce something” – they already DID. *duh*

    Too bad for you Birthers that they are *the only official authorities* on this matter and whatever they vouch for and certify automatically gets FFAC.

    John: Sheriff Joe’s investigation seems to be point to the Hawaii DOH. This is not surprising since Hawaii DOH has fought very hard to prevent the original documents from being seen. (Many birthers believe that Hawaii DOH has no orginal documents for Obama and that any such document or image that has been produced by Obama or Hawaii DOH has been manufactured and is most likely a forgery and a fraud.) As was said in the press conference, should Obama or Hawaii produce something, that evidence or document will be examined with a fine tooth and comb.

    He could find himself in real trouble if he goes forward with that. Somehow, I don’t think the AG of AZ will want to go along with that…

    Arpiao’s suggestion of taking this on within his own organization instead of “passing it off” to others is quite telling of how much this attempted “Trial Balloon” tactic has already fallen like a “Lead Balloon”.

    Their original intent and goal was obvious here – try to reignite public media controversy on the issue in the hopes to goad and pressure others to take up this fool’s errand. That way, he could stoke the fires and then pass the buck and try to wash his hands of all this.

    However, it is barely penetrating anywhere and anywhere outside of the Birtherverse where it gets mentioned – it is already a resounding DUD and a subject of much loathing and mocking.

    So, the only way for Corsi & him to still try to keep their latest Swift Boat brainstorm alive will be if he doubles down and tries to get away with continuing this mock investigation himself…

    In other words, an act of desperation…

    Well, at least he can claim martyrdom when the DOJ takes him down for “rampant lawbreaking”.

    I think that word Martyr is inappropriate. Martyrs are supposed to be innocent. I live in Maricopa County, and I used to be employed as a private investigator who did criminal background checks at the Federal level in U.S. District Court of Arizona. I would come across the gazillion civil rights lawsuits filed against Arpaio in Arizona Federal Court on a daily basis in researching the subjects I was paid to investigate. Arpaio is probably the most cited name in Arizona’s Pacer system. While I never actually counted them (he was not a subject of any of my searches specifically), I’m sure there are literally thousands of lawsuits against him. I think that precludes his martyr status.

    We are talking about the same corrupt DoH office who refused to follow UIPA law many times in the past. I have personally sent them a question whether they issued COLB to Obama on June 6, 2007 and they refused to confirm it.

    I thought the whole thing was rather funny in a sad sort of way, like an old Charlie Chaplin routine, if you see what I mean.

    I don’t know much about Arpaio other than what the news items have reported about his blatant and often violent racist treatment of Hispanics.

    Therefore I can’t say I was surprised that he bought the birther lies hook line & sinker. I know some here constantly argue that not all birthers are racists, and that’s probably true, but I’m among those that always said that the elephant in the room was pure racism: the utter rejection of “presidenting while black.”

    Considering what we know about Arpaio’s mental make up, how could he possibly NOT fall for this. This was like Orval Faubus at Little Rock, in a less historically important fashion.

    Have you ever seen one of those paint jobs which dynamically change across a certain colour range (I think it’s called “flip-flop paint” in the UK, dunno about the US)?
    If you showed this to a guy who’s been painting his private cars for 20 years, he’d probably go “well, I cannot reproduce that effect with all the 90 colours I have, that means it’s impossible!”. Ignoring of course that he simply doesn’t have both the special paint required and the skills to apply it.

    And since we all know the posse’s “experts” likely coincide with the WND “experts” we’ve all known and loved to debunk, their statement “we cannot reproduce it, therefore no-one can” is not only bogus, but to take that as the basis for claiming a crime was committed reflects badly on the “quality” of Maricopa County law enforcement.

    As the Doc said, don’t you think any criminal who was convicted in MC now has a good case claiming the sheriff’s office is working with non-scientific, outlandishly amateurish methods?

    naturalizedcitizen: has led me to believe there is probably cause

    Big difference between a belief in probable cause and a conclusion.

    Unfortunately, the crazy right doesn’t get this. My local newscaster on a local Phoenix (ArpaioLand) radio station, Sandy Wells, stated this morning that Arpaio concluded it was fraud too. A half hour before that “concluded” statement, she made a previous broadcast where she said Arpaio “proved” the birth certificate is fraudulent.

    Saying it’s a conclusion or proven doesn’t make it so though.

    Saying and doing are two different things. She didn’t say Arpaio stated that he concluded that it’s fraudulent, she said he concluded that it is fraudulent. Dr. C – you and I both know he couldn’t possibly conclude it’s fraudulent. The State of Hawaii has verfied that the information on the LFBC is true. They stand by that statement. It doesn’t matter what Arpaio’s possie thinks, the information is true. All of this nonsense of pixel placement completely misses the point. The information is verified by Hawaii officials.

    Before we get to the point of “potential crimianl perps” there has to be actual evidence of some criminal wrong doing. Not to mention, I’d like to hear what the motive was for the head of the McCain campaign’s in Hawaii would be to lie about then candidate Obama’s birth certificate.

    You see in our county, we have this little “innocent until proven guilty” thing. And before someone is proven guilty, a prosecutor has to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Proving guilt beyond a reasonable doubt usually requires providing evidence. Seeing how we’re still waiting for that evidence thing, you have a long way to go before labelling people “potential criminal perps.”

    Because quite simply there is no reason for it. If it was submitted to a court of law, it would be accepted as authentic on its face. Before there would be a need to subject it to any further review, the side claiming there was a problem would actually have to produce some evidence that it should not be relied on. Considering I have yet to see a remotely plaussible story of how President Obama could be born anywhere else, muchless evidence of any wrong doing on the part of Hawaiian government officials, or any motive of why they would go to such lenghts to support a forgery, and all of the evidence supports Hawaiian birth, why would there be any need to subject the document to any additional analysis?

    Perhaps if you actually gave us a reason why do doubt the document that isn’t based on lies, innuendo, and pure fantasy, some of us might think there would be a reason for additional examination of the document.

    The Magic M March 2, 2012 at 12:35 pm #

    LineInTheSand: Everything they’s said and done up to this point is now suspect?

    Why would it? All Joe has is “I believe someone forged the PDF”. That’s already a far cry from “I believe somebody forged the certified paper copies”, something he does not and cannot conclude.
    And it makes sense – if the DoH was somehow involved in any forgery, they would’ve turned over perfect forgeries to Obama’s lawyer and there would’ve been no need to manipulate the PDF.
    Therefore, if you believe the PDF was forged, it follows Hawaii cannot have played any part in any wrongdoing. And if it hasn’t, there’s no point in not trusting the DoH when it says the PDF is legit.

    So you end up with a birfer paradoxon – if you believe the PDF was forged, it follows the DoH is telling the truth and therefore Obama was born in Hawaii. And if the DoH is not telling the truth, then the PDF must be real and therefore Obama was born in Hawaii.
    No matter how you twist it, you end up with Obama being born in Hawaii which is all that matters. (Even if, arguendo, there was something else worthy of being forged on the BC, it cannot be anything that makes Obama ineligible since everything necessary for being NBC – born in the US in 1961 – can be deduced as correct from the above reasoning.)

    Unless you want to claim that the DoH, for some reason, believes authenticating a forged PDF is somehow legally different from producing a forged certified copy in the first place. Which again makes no sense at all in the real world.

    There is nothing to explain. Hawaii even links to the PDF.
    http://hawaii.gov/health/vital-records/obama.html

    Why would they link to a forgery, and document the chain of custody of the original paper record? If Sheriff Joe is stupid enough to actually accuse Hawaiian officials of fraud, this will not turn out well for him.

    As for the layers, MrBrown said it well:

    “When do you think they will mention that every digitized image downloaded from the internet and opened with Adobe Illustrator will appear to have layers ? Layers are not caused by a forger creating a fraudulent document, they are caused by reading a digitized image downloaded and opened with Adobe Illustrator.
    Every Single Time. Every Single Image”

    Try it and see for yourself. Sheriff Joe relied on already-debunked clowns posing as “experts”- no actual experts were involved in his bought-and-paid-for “investigation”, and I am surprised that the Sheriff’s “experts” could even turn on a PC after reading their drivel.

    Will Arizona representatives respond to Arpaio?

    Posted: Mar 02, 2012 6:34 PM EST

    By Jadiann Thompson

    (excerpt – PHOENIX (CBS5)

    “What do you think about Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s investigation?” we asked.

    “I think the best thing for Republicans to do right now is to focus on the 2012 elections,” said Quayle.

    We didn’t really get a straight answer, so we asked again.

    “Do you think this is what we are paying him to do?” we asked.

    “I don’t know. I haven’t actually looked at the report,” Quayle said.

    And again, we asked, “You don’t have any comment more specifically about Arpaio basically calling the president’s birth certificate a sham?

    Quayle said, “I think that the president was born in Hawaii.”

    On Thursday, Arpaio said during a press conference that the president’s birth certificate is not authentic. He said a team of investigators, not paid by taxpayer money, found that the long-form certificate was created electronically and never existed in paper form.

    Of all Arizona’s representatives, we only heard back from three others.

    Rep. Jeff Flake, R-AZ, said he believes the president is a citizen and was born in the U.S.

    Rep. Ed Pastor, D-AZ, wrote us just to say he declined to comment.

    Sen. John McCain R-AZ, Sen. Jon Kyl R-AZ, Rep. Paul Gosar, R-AZ, Rep. Trent Franks, R-AZ, and Rep. David Schweikert R-AZ, did not respond.

    Rep. Raúl M. Grijalva, D-AZ, released the following statement Friday.

    “Sheriff Arpaio, who has apparently solved every case in Maricopa County and had nothing better to do, has decided that embarrassing himself on the national stage is a small price to pay for a headline. President Obama’s birthplace was never an issue, but continues to fascinate a tiny minority that Sheriff Arpaio, for whatever reason, wants to impress. If he put half this much zeal and diligence into solving the 400-plus unresolved sex crimes cases he allowed to sit on the back burner, the public would be better served. This is a transparent smokescreen to cover up the federal grand jury investigation he’s facing. He continues to politicize his office as shamelessly as ever,” said Grijalva.

    US government officials including those at much higher positions than Hawaii DoH claimed that US had evidence of Iraq’s WMDs that could be deployed at very short notice. They even produced pictures of alleged sites where those weapons were stored.

    USA invaded a foreign country based on false information parroted by various government officials. It is much safer for bureaucrats to follow the herd than challenge the official dogma.

    Tim Adams signed a sworn affidavit that he was told by his supervisors that Obama’s birth certificate was not on file and there was no record in either hospital in Honolulu about his birth. It would be nice to have a hearing and confront Adams with Hawaii DoH officials to hear what they have to say under oath.

    Ariz. Sheriff Arpaio: Obama Birth Certificate ‘Computer Generated Forgery’
    http://www.npr.org/blogs/thetwo-way/2012/03/01/147737446/ariz-sheriff-arpaio-will-release-findings-on-obamas-birth-certificate?ft=1&f=1001

    “Update at 11:46 p.m. ET. A Bit More On Layers:

    Reader Beth Kerner points out in the comments that if you open the pdf of Obama’s birth certificate in Adobe Illustrator, it does, indeed show layers.

    We tried it and the file does have layers. But we also opened a few other pdf documents on our computer and they all showed similar layers that isolate the text.

    naturalizedcitizen: Tim Adams signed a sworn affidavit that he was told by his supervisors that Obama’s birth certificate was not on file and there was no record in either hospital in Honolulu about his birth. It would be nice to have a hearing and confront Adams with Hawaii DoH officials to hear what they have to say under oath.

    You don’t get it Obot, do you?
    Talk is cheap – show me the video! What is your or Beth Kerner’s definition of “similar layers”? This has to be seen it cannot be debated.

    If it were that simple, why bother listening to to people talk. Communication by oratory has been around far longer than video. I would not blow it off that easy.

    And videos can be altered, it is not the holy grail of evidence.

    You don’t get it Birther, Do You?

    Cross-posted from the other thread, since you are now “not getting it” in two seperate threads:

    “Birthers only believe it if it is on youtube, huh?

    How about something much simpler- try it yourself. You don’t even have to scan anything if you don’t have a scanner. Do a Google search until you find a PDF similar in content to Obama’s LFBC, with areas that are typed, handwritten, and graphical elements. Open it in Adobe Illustrator and see the layers for yourself.
    (I would supply you with a PDF or two, but would you trust them from an Obot?)”

    Wow, you keep desperately having to change the subject to unrelated matters, don’t you? You really are having a tough time and going through a difficult tantrum… LOL!

    Yeah, several different prominent politicians records have been breached by people authorizing them without access in the past. So what is your point?

    …Oh that’s right, as usual, you don’t have one…

    naturalizedcitizen: How many times and when was Obama’s passport record breached? Who was president at that time?

    Yes, the Bush adminstration lied to us and pushed bad information. The lesson there is not to believe lies. You Birthers should learn that, since lies are all you go by.

    naturalizedcitizen: US government officials including those at much higher positions than Hawaii DoH claimed that US had evidence of Iraq’s WMDs that could be deployed at very short notice. They even produced pictures of alleged sites where those weapons were stored.
    USA invaded a foreign country based on false information parroted by various government officials. It is much safer for bureaucrats to follow the herd than challenge the official dogma.

    Wow, you really are scrambling now. Trotting out long debunked and discredited low-level liar Tim Adams, I see. You mean the same one that officials said had no access to such records? LOL! Yeah, another one of these meaningless “daffydafits” that WND scams you gullible tools with…

    Ah, I see you are having trouble with our English language again, foreign-born. See, the things you are mentioning are NOT “government” records, they are “private records” for an individual.
    But then again, you’re not a very smart person, are you? Unless you have some biased agenda you would like to admit… Because you wouldn’t actually be demanding information of *only* Obama that you woudn’t demand of EVERY candidate, would you? Where are your “concerns” and proof of evidence of all these “records” you seem to care about for everyone else??? Why do YOU keep trying to hold Obama to a different standard?

    It is you Obot Quislings who do not want to find the truth. Otherwise, you would be calling for opening of government records about Obama (birth, passport, INS records…)

    Translation: *waaaaaaaah*

    Awww, poor Birther. Really having a tough time at being Punked by WND yet again. You got so excited for your “great white hope”, Arpaio, and all he delivers to you is a re-hash of WND’s failed PDF arguments and no action.

    Sorry, but there is no point in debating a non-issue on something as irrelevant as meaningless analyisis of image scans. But hey, keep crying your bitter Birther tears. Its all you’ve got.

    No one at the Honolulu Elections Division had access to birth records or hospital records. It doesn’t matter whether Tim Adams made this up, or whether his supervisor made it up. They had no way to know.

    naturalizedcitizen: I received the standard runaround from CA Secretary of State when I asked their office for clarification about the process used to create a CERTIFIED list of candidates for presidential ballot. Democrats put party interests first.
    I cannot fight Obama’s brown shirts.At least I can ridicule you and other Obots for being good little Quislings.

    Except that’s not what I said, is it…

    I suggested you go to your AG, Attorney General, and demand an investigation.

    Are you being intentionally obtuse, or do you find simple concepts difficult? If you cannot even read a simple sentence, how are we to believe you can judge the sincerity of Arpaio’s dog and pony show?

    naturalizedcitizen: I have seen it with my own eyes and I think you are full of it. Arpaio’s investigation presented videos showing that scan of a control document does NOT closely resemble Obama’s pdf file. Number of layers and their content was very different between the two files.

    You saw a video with a bunch of pretty pictures that the “investigators” CLAIM means such and such.

    I can show you a video of real live unicorns and leprechauns.
