The Arpaio Affidavit

Something I never thought would appear has appeared in the Florida case of Voeltz v. Obama: a signed and sworn affidavit from Sheriff Joe Arpaio about the Cold Case Posse investigation of President Obama’s documentation.

So what is the Sheriff willing to say under penalty of perjury?

Upon close examination of the evidence, it is my belief that forgery and fraud was likely committed in key identity documents including President Obama’s long-form birth certificate, his Selective Service Registration card and his Social Security number.

I shouldn’t have been surprised: he said nothing. There’s more, but no statement of fact whatever supporting the conspiracy theories about Barack Obama. It’s just what he believes “may have” happened. When he does state a fact, it’s wrong; e.g. “various statements made by Hawaii government officials regarding the Obama birth controversy over the last 5 years.” That should be, “the last 4 years.” He couldn’t even spell the President’s name right! The Affidavit is useless, providing no evidence at all.

Here is the full text:

    Arpaio lied on his affidavit. He is a COUNTY employee (he stated he has been a federal and state employee for 51 years – he omitted that he’s a county employee). Arpaio has NEVER been an Arizona state employee and he stated he has the authority to investigate this matter. The affidavit is a LIE!

    I’ve brought it to the attention of KPHO’s Facebook page (not sure if they will even look at it, but i’ve tried).

    Fudgy and weasel-y, like Corsi and Zullo’s …. but also not filed. Will they be? Or just more PR to rile up the faithful?

    If they are silly enough to file these screeds … soooooo … what? Someone out of state filed an affidavit to the effect that they are indeed a nutty conspiracist. What does that have to do with the case in Florida? “Someone ‘suspects’ something! Take someone off a ballot somewhere!”

    Silliness. But the rubes will eat it up, filed or not. It’s never about accomplishing anything, only about keeping those birfer dreams alive by maintaining The Appearance of Doing Something.

    I’ll say it again. We know the provenance of the certification. If it was forged, we know the names of the forgers, or at least of witnesses to the forgery. Bring a criminal charge of forgery against one of them, and this conversation about President Obama’s eligibility can begin.

    Doc,

    You not being honest again, mostly lacking in knowledge. As you know, Arpaio’s team has just returned from Hawaii and is analyzing and compiling a wealth of information they had obtained. Since you are not privy to the details the Arpaio investigation, Your statement of “When he does state a fact, it’s wrong;” is attacking.

    This statement you made may in fact be wrong. Remember, Obama’s COLB was stamped in JUNE 2007 but released in JUNE 2008. Arpaio’s team may uncovered information in 2007 that required Obama having his birth certificate in 2007 but not releasing it until 2008. Communications from Hawaii officials may have been uncovered in 2007 regarding Obama’s alleged birth there. So, his statement that the contraversy has been going the last 5 years may in fact be accurate.

    We will find out more information at the 2nd press conference.

    I think the Arpaio team should request all emails, internal memos and other document from the governor’s office, AG Office, and DOH for the past 4 to 5 years that contain reference to Obama’s birth certificate or vital records. All of these records are public record under Hawaii law and can be asked by anybody. Sheriff Joe should want to know whose talking to who and what they are taking about regarding Obama’s vital records.

    No how exactly would they have “uncovered” or “compiled” anything when both Arpaio and the State of Hawaii have made it very clear the only thing his “investigators” were given access to was the inside of a conference room and information as to why they aren’t going to be permitted to see anything?

    By the way, did anyone notice the line “at virtually no cost to the tax payer”? Now, where have I heard that before? Oh, yeah, “There is virtually no risk in these credit default swaps.” Or, “If you follow my chocolate cake diet you are virtually guaranteed to lose 20 pounds in a week.” I’m betting that the taxpayers have footed the bill for all the expenses and Joe is hoping to get some of it back from suckers (ooops, I mean patriots). ‘Cept, he hasn’t driven the usurper from power, so I suspect many of the suckers (ooops, I mean patriots) have misplaced their checkbooks.

    I wasn’t saying that it would necessarily apply to Hawaii. However, I’m thinking that they have some experience dealing with trying to obtain birth records from within Arizona.

    Some of these things I don’t quite get. California is an “open records” state. Anyone can get a copy of any birth record, although these “non-authorized” certified copies contain a legend all over the front that say that they aren’t valid for identification purposes. That essentially means that they are proof of all the facts, but they can’t be used to obtain a passport, get a SSN card, or apply for a driver license. However, law enforcement can get a full copy and are exempt from the notary requirements typically needed for such a copy if sent in by mail. I’m not sure why law enforcement would even need such a copy, since they won’t be using them to obtain identity documents. I’m curious if an “informational copy” would be legal in a court of law to establish the facts of ones birth. I can imagine someone who might want to enter one into evidence who might just want such a document used to prevent it from being used for identity fraud. I’ve heard of birth certificates being collected for organizations like Little League, but where they weren’t stored securely.

    I suspect that the Sheriff has had a minor stroke and is making bad decisions. Many people have had this problem for years without it causing so much of a problem that it is noticeable to outsiders. While it doesn’t excuse his behavior, it does make it a bit more understandable.

    I know of at least one very public person in Arizona who have had exactly this happen. They were making choices they would have never made in their hey-day, getting sub-par results from above-par resources which would never have happened in their hey-day, allowing others to make decisions for them that they would have never allowed to happen in their hey-day, and tolerating sycophants like they would never have allowed in their hey-day.

    Outside commenters were making remarks exactly like those we are making about Arpaio here; the early career successes were flukes; they were at heart vindictive and had hidden it well; they just can’t relate to people, the spouse has been doing all the interpersonal heavy carrying; they are embarrassing his employer by supporting outside interests.

    It finally took a doctor to explain what had happened, and they still couldn’t believe that they couldn’t function exactly like always. After a brief time for recovery then right back in at the deep end, they finally saw for themselves what everyone else had seen, but had not known what the cause was.

    The last time I visited Hawaii, it cost approx $2000 for everything.
    This included a condo on the beach, rental car, the 12.5% hotel tax, meals and even my wedding there.
    I was there 10 days.
    So if it cost $40000 to visit Hawaii for 5 days, I’m sure wondering how they managed to spend $8K a day.

    Fwiw, I also visited 3 islands in Tahiti (Tahiti, Bora Bora and Moorea.)
    Total cost (again 10 days) was less than $8000.
    This included all meals, inter-island flights and an overwater bungalow.

    http://www.azcentral.com/news/politics/articles/2012/05/21/20120521arpaio-obama-birth-funding.html

    Here is the pertinent paragraph:

    “The cold-case posse has spent about $40,000 on the investigation so far (5/22/2012), according to the Sheriff’s Office. The posse is funded through donations.”

    I agree with both of you. Both the FL case & the Arpaio show are nothing more than the latest FUD propaganda prop attempts by WND in their increasingly desperate attempt to manufacture a “Swift Boat 2012” effort against Obama’s re-election.

    That is really ALL they do – spread propaganda, push nonsense-based agendas and most importantly, GRIFT off of their gullible flock in the process.

    If anyone has any question about their true intent & motives here, the Birther’s own statements about their intentions in FL out them:

    http://obamaballotchallenge.com/flash-june-18-fl-ballot-challenge-hearing-to-be-first-ever-to-have-arpaio-posse-affidavit-submitted

    Talk is cheap. Lawyers are expensive. The time is right NOW. We are short $3600 in fees and about $3000 for expenses to get us through next weeks’s hearing. Please donate and pass this along. It is frustrating that George Zimmerman easily raised over $100,000, but we are struggling to meet expenses for this very important case. I am personally being hounded for payment and ask that you all do your part and please donate NOW.

    – If you’re waiting for someone else to do it, we’re at the 11th hour and not enough have.

    – If you think you can’t afford it, consider the alternative of four more years of an enemy agent in the White House. Send what you can and get your friends to do it. What will you tell your friends and children years from now about what you did in this war?

    – If you think the system is rigged and we can’t win, think again.This case has a better chance than most. If we lose the ruling, it’s very appealable. Even if we lose, we win, because political theater is one of our objectives. Obama and the rotten official power structure are being exposed more and more for all to see. This clown won’t be able to get elected dogcatcher when we’re through with him. But, we also want to lay the groundwork for possible future nullification of everything he ever signed.

    Obviously, there is ZERO chance in the REAL world that “future nullification” is even possible. But the Birther masters are good at conning and fleecing their gullible flock in the process… so they manufacture the false hope of a “magic reset button” in order to separate the fools from their money.

    …And as they point out the whole TRUE objective (besides smear-based profiteering) is REALLY an attempt at “political theater”. In other words, propaganda FUD.

    That is the real reason that WND is trotting out its cameras to this latest FAIL event and having their AZ puppets participate and talk up this latest stunt. The REAL goal here is that WND thinks it can still use Arpaio’s name to garnish some REAL media coverage…and therefore merely “win” in their eyes, by merely being paid attention to at all…

    I agree with the assessment that WND is making a mistake on this gambit. I would argue that their last 2 Arpaio EPIC FAIL events have already demonstrated that this entire “Swift Boat” angle of Birtherism has already sailed and SUNK. But hey, let them double down and continue to waste their time in this same futile direction… it sure keeps their attention and funding focused on failure instead of coming up with anything that is an actual threat…

As I suspected, the Florida hearing is another WND sideshow. WND attorney, WND-scripted affidavits, WND material as filings, no doubt. We’ve seen this promotion before.

    He’s always got the fallback position that he was relying on the work of his posse and that he didn’t personally supervise their work.

    Personally I’m wondering why the Hawaii DOH doesn’t sue Zullo for defamation. Would it be within their right to send over someone from the Hawaii Attorney General’s office do do so? He’s personally accused them of malfeasance, although he’s also somewhat vague about it.

    Still – without specifics, I’m wondering how well an affidavit will be received. I’m pretty sure that a sealed letter of verification from the Hawaii DOH can trump any vague statements from the CCP and Arpaio. If I were a judge, I’d be looking at this like Judge Malahi looked at all the “evidence” that Orly and her fellow plaintiffs did.

    Because you don’t do what cranks are counting on, you don’t jump through their hoops and you don’t answer their provocations.
    Besides, imagine they did but do not manage to prove malice (IANAL but isn’t that required in the US?) – how birthers would trumpet this as a victory that “Hawaii was unable to challenge our claims”.

    Good question(s). Didn’t Corsi or Zullo says they sold the book because they weren’t compensated in any way by the posse or MCSO?

    Zebest and video production are possibilities for some of it.

    I checked the posses IRS 990 filings and there aren’t any because they are part of a public entity. That then begs the question of whether the posse’ expenditures are really public records and should be disclosed.

    Interestingly I found in one of the posse’s filings with the Arizona Corporation Commission that it had $6,900 in cash at the end of 2008. They aren’t required to file that information and didn’t in subsequent years so there’s no way to know exactly what they had and when after that.

    Presumably it would be various Hawaiian officials, such as Dr Onaka, who would sue as individuals, not the state. The courts tend to give wide latitude to criticisms of officials, but there have to be limits where there are specific factual allegations that are willfully false. If you say, “Sen Snort is a crook”, I doubt he can sue, but if you say, “I saw Snort take a suitcase full of cash behind the diner at 3 AM Tuesday morning” when you were nowhere near the diner and saw no such thing might be actionable.

    Of course, the CCP report contains no specifics at all. It says “the documents may be forgeries” but doesn’t accuse anyone specific of forging them.

    Two men who identified themselves as being from the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office in Phoenix went to the Hawaii Department of Health Monday morning requesting verification of President Barack Obama’s birth certificate, said a state spokeswoman.

    A Hawaii deputy attorney general gave the men information concerning the legal requirements to obtain such a document; the requirements are posted on the Health Department’s website. The two men then left the office, Health Department spokeswoman Janice Okubo said.

    The two men showed Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office badges and identified themselves as Michael Zullo and Brian Mackiewcz, Okubo said. They are “authorized by the Sheriff of Maricopa County, who is conducting an official investigation,” a spokesman for the sheriff’s office said in an email.

    Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has been researching Obama’s residency status using a volunteer cold-case “posse,” but now has employed a taxpayer-funded deputy, The Arizona Republic reported Monday.

    Zullo is a volunteer, the Republic reported, but Okubo said that Mackiewicz presented a business card showing he is with the Threats Management Unit of the sheriff’s office.

    Dr. Alvin Onaka, DOH state registrar, said, “Even though our Kinau Hale office will be closed for the New Year holiday, the public will be able to use our new on-line system developed in partnership with ehawaii.gov. Couples who use the online system will benefit from a more convenient, accurate and efficient process that will provide access to an electronic certificate within days.”

    Here’s my best guess as to how it unfolded:

    They meet whoever from the department and/or the attorney general’s office and as they are introduced they hold their badge cases in their left hand to identify themselves and extend their right hands to shake. (Friendly guys.) They tell them who they are and why they’re there. (No surprise to anyone, I’m sure.) At this point they probably put their badge cases away. No crime.

    They may have made a specific request to see the so-called “vault copy” or the much talked about microfilm and that’s no crime either.

    In a matter of minutes whoever the person is from attorney general’s office has explained to them what isn’t going to happen and sends them on their way.

    So………….I don’t see anything illegal or improper here. Stupid? Oh yes. But, like I said, fortunately it’s not against the law.

    Sheriff Joe Arpaio testified at former County Attorney Andrew Thomas’ discipline hearing before the Arizona State Bar:

    Under oath, Arpaio was unable to answer many questions asked about the details of the failed corruption investigations, repeatedly answering,

    “I don’t recall,”

    “I’m not sure.”

    “I was confused then, and I’m confused now. I didn’t have all the facts,”

    “I never read the indictment,”

    “I don’t recall the evidence,”

    “I don’t mean to be evasive, but you’re asking me questions [about cases] two, three years old. I don’t have a computerized mind,”

    “I have 4,000 employees. I delegate,”

    I know better, but I listened to that dreck anyway. You can sure see where the birther crowd gets their info. I find it odd that Zullo spoke of both the Hawaiian investigation and the two-parent theory. Seems like overkill. He referred to the Republican Party’s “problem” with potential vice-presidential candidates Jindal and Rubio as a possibile reason their heros at FOX aren’t covering the issue. He even talked about Congress trying to change the Constitution without going through the proper process. I guess they are just covering all the bases.

    Gov. Jindal will sign ‘birther’ bill if it reaches his desk

    Gov. Bobby Jindal would sign a bill requiring presidential candidates to provide a copy of their birth certificate to qualify for the Louisiana ballot if it reaches his desk, a spokesman said Monday.

    House Bill 561 was filed last week by two Republican lawmakers.

    The bill by state Rep. Alan Seabaugh, R-Shreveport, and Sen. A.G. Crowe, R-Slidell, would require federal candidates who want to appear on Louisiana ballots to file an affidavit attesting to their citizenship, which would have to be accompanied by an “original or certified copy” of their birth certificate.

    The requirement also would apply to candidates for U.S. Senate or the House of Representatives.

    A similar bill was recently passed by the Arizona legislature.

    Seabaugh, an attorney, said his bill was motivated by the numerous lawsuits that have been filed over Obama’s citizenship. “Not one of them has ever been decided on the merits,” Seabaugh said. “As an attorney, that’s offensive to me.”

    He said he has no reason to doubt Obama’s citizenship. “I don’t purport to be a ‘birther,'” Seabaugh said. “This is from the standpoint of cleaning up an area of the law where there appears to be a gap.”

    Obama’s citizenship has recently been aggressively questioned by construction mogul Donald Trump, who says he has sent a team of investigators to Hawaii to look at the issue.

    Plotkin said Jindal believes Obama is a citizen.

    According to statements attributed to Taitz, she simply plans to print copies of these new CCP affidavits and start adding them to her filings from here on in…

    There is a name for that children’s game. It is called Towers of Hanoi. Every time she files somewhere, her dossie gets bigger and thicker (and stupider).

    And while for Towers of Hanoi an algorithm has been created to solve the puzzle and to calculate the minimum number of moves a computer would have to make, Taitz’ version is both limitless (until defendants start moving for sanctions, any day now) and hopeless.

    First, that Seabagh is a lying bagh of birfer. He knows very well that several of these suits have been judged on the merits by now. Georgia ring a bell?

    Jindal will rue the day when he signs this crap (which is probably unconstitutional, and he should know so). He obviously does not know that the birfers whose votes he is hoping to get, have an escape clause with the two-parent fantasy.

    Besides, if embryos are persons, Bobby, (as you seem to think) you were born in India. Where is your Natural Born Conception certificate? Don’t have one? OK, you are not NBC either.

    A group of Jewish women are at their Wednesday Mahjong game.

    – One woman looks at the rock on another’s left hand and says, “Vhat a beautiful diamond.”

    – “This is the Plotkin diamond.”

    – “Plotkin diamond? I’ve heard of he Hope diamond. Vas iss the Plotkin diamond?”

    – “There’s a terrible curse that goes mit this diamond.”

    – “Curse? How romantic. Vhat kind of curse?”

    – “Mr. Plotkin”

    Actually, ToH is very simple as an algorithm (basic example of recursion; f(n+1) = 2f(n)+1 => f(n) = 2^n-1) which perfectly corresponds to Orly’s methods (filing, motion for reconsideration, appeal, motion for reconsideration, motion for en banc rehearing, Supreme Court appeal, …, SCOTUS appeal, …) which are also recursive in nature (given how the non-results of one case get appended to the next case in another state).

    Every so often one hears in the news about someone who claimed they had cancer or another disease and these people take donations. The donations are not earmarked in any specific way. They could be for medical bills, food, transportation, etc.
    Later these people are discovered to not have cancer and instead bought a tummy tuck and a trip to the Bahamas.
    At this point, the person that faked cancer is often tried for fraud.

    So what’s different here?
    We have people who took money as donations under the guise of some investigation, yet there’s nothing to investigate as it’s already settled law.
    I don’t see a big difference here.
    The donations were made in a non-specific way (ie: “may be used for airfare, lodging, etc”), but the reason for the donation(s) in the first place was to investigate something where all the answers are already available and no further info could be legally obtained. Wouldn’t this be fraud? ie: accepting funds under a false premise for some action that could never be successfully realized?

    That article was from last year. I don’t think it went anywhere.

    That’s great, the BC’s for Romney and Jindal are both a Certificate of Live Birth. We know that according to The Donald, those aren’t real birth certificates. What are the birthers to do now?
