Amid death threats, Maricopa County, Ariz., Sheriff Joe Arpaio is scratching his head over the major media’s virtual silence about his decision to investigate Barack Obama’s eligibility to run for re-election.
“Getting death threats is nothing new for me,” said Arpaio, referring to his national reputation as a tough enforcer of immigration laws. “But why has the media has decided to black out all news of our Obama investigation? That’s what I don’t understand.
“I’m a controversial guy and usually the media is all over me,” he continued, “but when I decided to investigate Obama, the media has suddenly gone missing in action.”
Arpaio said that if the media’s strategy is to minimize the impact of his investigation by ignoring it, it is not likely to work.
“If the mainstream media thinks our investigation will go away if it remains unreported, they’re wrong. The investigation is proceeding, and I fully anticipate we will publish a report early next year.”
Arpaio said his law enforcement investigation is being professionally conducted and is wide-ranging in scope. It includes an investigation into whether or not Barack Obama is using a fraudulent Social Security number, as well as whether the birth certificate issued by the White House on April 27 is a forgery.
Arpaio said he was also surprised by how vile the threats he has gotten from Obama supporters turn out to be.
Apparently, the drug cartels want to keep Obama in office thanks to the thousands of guns that Obama and U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder recently sent them by means of Border Patrol operation “Fast and Furious.”
Arpaio has demanded to see the original microfilm records of Obama’s birth certificate held in the vault of the Hawaii Department of Health.
Arpaio has also suggested the White House should authorize the Hawaii Department of Health to release for independent court-authorized forensic examination any 1961 paper-and-ink original Obama birth records the department has on file.
The Maricopa County Cold Case Posse assigned by Arpaio to investigate Obama’s eligibility has now assembled some 2,000 pages of evidence in the case and is preparing to conduct interviews.
The posse is also currently in the process of briefing various Arizona state officials about the progress of the investigation to date.
