Arpaio endorses Trump

Well, he would, wouldn’t he?

imageWith a monumental yawn of non-surprise, I report that the birther Sheriff of Maricopa County, the man who left rape cases uninvestigated to focus on rounding up undocumented day laborers, has endorsed fellow birther Donald Trump for president in an appearance in Iowa yesterday.

Listen to this interview by CNN where Arpaio is grilled over his birther connections with Trump.

    The CNN interview with Jake Tapper and Joe boggles the (sane) mind, insofar as Joe is allowed to assert that the online image posted by the White House, is a “fraudulent document”, but is not required to specify what the legal “fraud” is committed by the very existence of the repeatedly, OFFICIALLY factually VERIFIED image’s content, when it is only made available to the public for general informational purposes.

    The Birther crowd, including Trump, exemplifies the right-wing nut job menace to the Constitution that I think exceeds many others – a habit of behavior that approaches anarchy by simply redefining words. ‘Fraudulent Document’

    Birthers often claim Obama is “ineligible” to the Presidency (or alternatively should be impeached and imprisoned or hung) because he has broken an imaginary law which they so strongly THINK should exist, that they generally believe it really does exist.

    They, essentially, say he won a second term by displaying to the general public, something less (anything less) than his original birth certificate or a state-certified and stamped likeness created by a process each Birther should be empowered to exclusively specify, with INDVIDUALl chain-of-custody-guaranteed certified postal delivery to as many as a hundred million potential voters.

    Never mind that Obama’s eligibility proving vital information would not change by their demanded method of delivery!

    And forget vote totals; if one voter’s copy of Obama’s BC ends up in the Post Office’s dead-letter office, THEN OBAMA STOLE THE ELECTION and deserves to be hung twice. Why twice? I suppose because then you don’t need a legitimate reason?

    @Doc [ who left rape cases uninvestigated to focus on rounding up undocumented day laborers, ]
    Perhaps you have not correlated the serious danger of criminal behavior from illegal foreigners and aliens that a border Sheriff undoubtedly must deal with? Its a problem nationally though.

    The Center for Immigration Studies, an anti-illegal immigration group, cites criminal statistics from certain counties, like Maricopa County, Arizona, where 22 percent of felons are illegal immigrants;

    These cases are listed as a demonstration that better prevention of illegal immigration is a public safety issue even though these cases are not representative of the [illegal alien population in general.] These cases refer to crimes other than terrorism.

    December 2015 — A 40-year-old illegal alien, Michael Rodriguez Garcia, was sentenced to four life terms for the rape and sodomy of two children in Alabama. (Breitbart News, December 19, 2015)

According to federal law, illegal aliens are not permitted to possess firearms. Three baggies of cocaine were also found hidden in his backyard. Villarreal-Sanchez is expected to be sentenced in December. He could face up to 10 years in federal prison and a possible $250,000 fine. (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, August 11, 2015)

    July 2015 — Ever Olivos-Gutierrez, an illegal visa overstayer, was convicted of second degree murder in Colorado for the death he caused while driving intoxicated.

    March 2015 — An Idaho judge sentenced Phuong Hoang Le, a Vietnamese illegal alien, to prison for 36 months. Le was convicted of possession of a stolen car and stolen credit card. The judge commented, “Stealing cars and credit cards strike at the hearts of average middle class citizens.” The prosecutor said that Le had 10 prior felony convictions, but that according to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, he is not likely to be deported because if Le were to be deported to Vietnam “he would be killed.” (http://magicvalley.com/news/local/mini-cassia/ — March 25, 2015)

    What are you recommending? All Birthers be hung twice?

    The complaint you have would and is much better served by the U.S. Supreme Court. Unfortunately, the advocate of Amicus Curiae is non existent among Anti-Birthers contributing to the unresolved problem many Constitutional Scholars are alluding to now.

    Example APRIL 27 Amicus Curiae invitation Judy v. Obama 14-9396
    http://www.supremecourt.gov/search.aspx?filename=/docketfiles/14-9396.htm

    I think Anti-Birthers should pony up [their silence] in Court as a [Contribution] to the Problems they seem to Claim is the result of a pleadings [to the Courts] civilly when Standing was understood.

    Essentially, this is like complaining and whining about a problem you have done nothing to Solve but everything to avoid or evade.

    If ANYTHING Anti-Birthers in expressing anxiety about Trump must look at their Silence on the Qualification Question in Court as the powering jet Fuel that has propelled Donald J. Trump to #1 in the Polls.

    If the Question had been handled Legally by SCOTUS the fuel would not be there. It would be settled.

    Your accusations seem to be sadly misdirected.

    If Arpaio truly has evidence showing that the LFBC is a fraudulent document, then by not releasing it he becomes the one complaining and whining about a problem he has done nothing to solve but everything to avoid or evade.

    Let him lay out the evidence and make his case. Until then, the legal situation is this: There are at least five State of Hawaii documents stating that Pres. Obama was born in Honolulu, and not a single piece of competent legal evidence casting doubt on any of them.

    Anyone who treats Arpaio’s fact-free claims as if they were evidence-based runs the very real risk of appearing delusional.

    Relying on my ability to prove a negative is not winning either or settling. Imagine just for one instance Obama responding to #SCOTUS Case 14-9396 in the AFFIRMATIVE and hope the COURT would consider hearing and defining for the modern USA the Term [natural born Citizen] for the benefit of every now, and future voting Citizen(?)

    Wouldn’t that be a positive directive that was really concerned; as well releasing any document the COURT would consider relevant or questionable of foreign affiliation.

    Obama has refused this opportunity. In a sense he has coward to the Transparency he himself promised. He has let you down in this as well as me.

    Any assertion that I am somehow negligent for bringing something settled is wholly and soundly defeated by all the Constitutional Scholars who also have varying opinions.

    Obama’s position does not reflect the respect to American Voters that my Writ brings to them through the SCOTUS Court.

    No, you are changing the subject and avoiding the subject that I raised.

    The documents prove that Pres. Obama was born in Hawaii, and Arpaio’s claims of fraudulence are entirely unsupported.

    Do you dispute that? And, if so, on what evidence do you base your position?

    Note: I am asking you to cite competent legal evidence. Conjecture and innuendo do not count.

    Your witness relies entirely on Documents being authenticated by witnesses for Hawaii. , one of which has been killed three different ways according to the same Officials in Hawaii you have so much Faith in.

    Your call for Arpaio to release his info if he has any is entirely relevant to other investigations. Without a Prosecutor you know you have won, however the evidence I could subpoena as a Prosecutor would be entirely different.

    Sound Familiar?

    [Yet many conservatives worry that even if the bureau comes up with sufficient evidence that Clinton broke the law, the Justice Department will decline to press charges. In response, some have pressed for a special prosecutor to be appointed, or for the FBI to pledge to release whatever evidence it digs up. ]

    http://thehill.com/policy/cybersecurity/267269-fbis-clinton-investigation-not-letting-up

    Why don’t you ask me what I would subpoena if I had the authority?

    I have a really bad feeling if Trump becomes President, Obama and his Signiture on EVERYTHING will be made moot, including Supreme Court nominees.

    The result will ultimately be a delayed investigation rather than one that could have been purposeful and saved time and money. Obama’s Legacy is mildewing in the Fridge for 7 years so far. It stinks and will be discarded as the Worst in all of America’s History!

    That’s going to be his Legacy. Watch and See.

    It may be the circumstance that Fraud was evaded from investigation and Prosecution on the Left, but because of the Extremes used the Right will simply and have simply bided their time.

    The result is not Balanced and Your enjoyment of Trump or Cruz will likely contrast your enthusiasm for Obama: which means if you’ve enjoyed the last 7 years you now have 7 years of unhappiness coming.

    As I said, the Resulting lack of investigation and evasion has not served us well as it has acted like a strong bashing tide on the bank holding up our Government. Wil it be swept away by this because of the refusal of the SCOTUS and CONGRESS to cut through it as they did with Nixon?

    Governor Abercrombie’s interesting words:

    “It was actually[ written], I am told, this is what our investigation is showing, it actually exists in the archives,[ written down],” Abercrombie said.
    For seemingly the first time, Abercrombie frankly acknowledged that presidential politics motivated his search for Obama birth records, implying that failure to resolve the questions that remain unanswered about the president’s birth and early life may damage his chance for re-election.

    The NEXT administration very easily could disqualify SCOTUS JUSTICES nominated by an illegal Constitutionally unqualified President. Sotomayor and Kagan could lose their offices based on not being nominated by a Qualified President.

    This would allow the next President to nominate potentially 5 JUSTICES, those 2 and 3 others likely retiring. Imagine that, and tell me it’s not important to be Transparent.The Democrats have no answer for that in the House or Senate right now being in the Minority.

    These Facts should Terrify Democrats who have bet the ENTIRE HOUSE of Government on OBAMA. Not good or wise.

    My witness? What on earth are you talking about?

    Our legal system attaches great weight to state documents. They are considered very strong evidence. I’ve asked you what contrary evidence you have and you have come up with none.

    That’s why, from a legal point of view, the President’s place of birth is an uncontested fact — 100% of the legally admissible evidence is on one side. All the rest is just blustery talk.

    And state documents are presumed truthful until proven otherwise. So far you are batting precisely zero.

    It’s sometimes amusing to ask birfoons the musical question “Exactly which chapter and section of which legal code do you claim is being violated?”. They don’t like being reminded that, after 4 years of “investigation”, Arpaio can’t even identify the “crime” he’s “investigating”.

    btw, I don’t know why they picked that video for the CNN story, but I’m 98% certain that that interview was done at least 3 months ago. I remember the gerbils making a minor fuss about it.

    You’re comparing apples and oranges. The states licenses (not licences – we don’t live in Great Britain, you know) which were issued by Massachusetts were real, legitimate licenses. They were issued erroneously, but they were real.

    There is nothing in that story to suggest that anyone produced forged documents. The nurses claimed that they were licensed in states where they were not, but there is no suggestion that they produced forged licenses. It appears that the private company which Massachusetts hired to verify the credentials of the applicants feel down on the job..
