Back on November 3, 2010, actor Sylvester Stallone tweeted the following:
I voted did you? Gotta get the Manchurian Candidate out of the drivers seat before were ALL soaring off a cliff into Oblivion…Be smart.
Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Arizona agrees.
Investigators for an Arizona sheriff’s volunteer posse have declared that President Barack Obama’s birth certificate is definitely fraudulent.
Members of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s posse said in March that there was probable cause that Obama’s long-form birth certificate released by the White House in April 2011 was a computer-generated forgery.
Now, Arpaio says investigators are positive it’s fraudulent.
Mike Zullo, the posse’s chief investigator, said numeric codes on certain parts of the birth certificate indicate that those parts weren’t filled out, yet those sections asking for the race of Obama’s father and his field of work or study were completed.
Zullo said investigators previously didn’t know the meaning of codes but that the codes were explained by a 95-year-old former state worker who signed the president’s birth certificate. Zullo said a news reporter who has helped out in the probe let investigators listen in on an interview he concluded of the former state worker.
The Obama campaign declined to comment on Arpaio’s allegations.
The Arizona Democratic Party says in a statement that Arpaio’s investigation is intended to draw attention away from problems within his own agency, such as hundreds of sex-crimes cases that the sheriff’s office failed to adequately investigate over a three-year period.
So-called “birthers” maintain Obama is ineligible to be president because, they contend, he was born in Kenya.
Hawaii officials have repeatedly confirmed Obama’s citizenship.
Obama released a copy of his long-form birth certificate in an attempt to quell citizenship questions.
Courts have rebuffed lawsuits over the issue.
Uh huh. The problem is: Obama seems to have a much in common with average Americans, as I do with the Eastern European in those commercials who identifies himself on the phone as “Peggy”.
Remember when Obama presented his “birth certificate”?
From wjbc.com, April 27, 2011:
“We do not have time for this silliness,” President Obama said in a statement to the media this morning about his birth certificate. The White House is releasing his full birth certificate, showing a live birth in Honolulu, Hawaii on August 4th, 1961. In a statement, Obama called himself amused and puzzled about questions that have been raised about his birth. Since 2008, some conspiracy theorists have repeatedly raised questions about whether Obama was actually born in the USA. In recent weeks, real estate mogul Donald Trump has fanned the flames of doubt about the President’s birthplace. Trump is flirting with a presidential run as a Republican.
A statement from White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer says the President viewed the issue as a distraction that was not good for the country. Pfeiffer said, “It may have been good politics and good TV, but it was bad for the American people and distracting from the many challenges we face as a country.”
Distracting? Thank you, Lt. Frank Drebin.
Nothing to see here. Move along. Nothing to see here.
This has been a busy week for the sheriff. On Monday, he had a little message for cancelled talk show host and Liberal comedian George Lopez, who used to have a sit-com as well.
Chicagotribune.com reported the story:
Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio isn’t laughing at George Lopez’s new one-man show on HBO in which the comedian blasts the Maricopa County lawman for his position on immigration and his “birther” stance.
In fact, Arpaio is daring the comedian, via the media, to stop hiding behind the mike and “meet me face to face.”
The controversial sheriff said he and his wife were flipping through the channels Saturday night when they paused to linger on Lopez’s show, “George: It’s Not Me, It’s You.” Arpaio said he was shocked at the potty-mouthed language coming from the comedian and switched to another channel without realizing the diatribe was aimed at him.
An Arizona reporter helpfully filled Arpaio in on the details. The sheriff’s response?
A dare for Lopez: “Get some guts. Come down here, and meet me face to face,” Arpaio told ABC15 in Arizona. “Let’s see how you act then.”
Arpaio probably isn’t joking. The tough-talking sheriff has long had a reputation as refusing to back down from controversy — even courting it. He has been accused of being abusive to prisoners, racially profiling Latinos and injecting himself into presidential politics by opening his own inquiry on behalf of those who believe President Obama was born outside the United States, and therefore is in the White House illegally.
You can watch the key snippet of Lopez’s show, “George: It’s Not Me, It’s You,” but be forewarned: F-bombs abound. Lopez also has a few choice words for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney. (Lopez makes the claim that Romney is actually Latino but has zero chance of getting the Latino vote come November.) The crowd cheers throughout.
Lopez, however, saves his fiercest wrath for Arpaio. We’d quote from it… if we were allowed to use such foul language in a family newspaper.
But we’re not.
By now, you’re probably wondering why I even posted this, as Sheriff Joe probably does not have a chance of a snowball in July of making his charges stick against the President of the United States.
I know…but, it does my heart a world of good, to see a good man fighting back.
A word of advice to the movie star from Ski Patrol and the “Preezy”:
