I left this comment at Birther Report after someone suggested I shut down this blog since I didn’t think that Arpaio and Zullo would ever hold another press conference:
It was obvious after Arpaio and Zullo’s initial display of investigative prowess at the first news conference that nothing of any substance would ever come out of that bunch, which was basically a”Sheriff Joe” label pasted over “Jerome Corsi” material. Whether or not A/Z ever held another press conference was always inconsequential. Now I am not saying that there will never be a big scandal about Barack Obama, only that if there is, Arpaio and Zullo are the last ones with the qualifications and resources to find it or prosecute it.
My goal is not to stop the birthers. They stop themselves by a lack of rigor in their thinking, and by the essential untruth of their narrative. Birther hopes died in 2008, not when the “March reveal” fizzled. My blogging is out of interest in digging out the truth in stories, what I say in the site’s tag line, “fishing for gold coins in a bucket of mud.” Engaging birthers is a bit like putting together a big jigsaw puzzle. That said, I have promised to stop updating my blog at noon on January 20, 2017. I trust that you’ll have gone home by then too.
