From Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office: Criminal Investigation Not “Opened Yet”

HOW WILL THE INVESTIGATION PROCEED?

by Sharon Rondeau

Does this man have forged credentials? If so, what are the consequences?

(Mar. 5, 2012) —The Post & Email contacted the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office this morning to inquire as to the status of a possible criminal investigation, as had been mentioned by Sheriff Joe Arpaio in his March 1, 2012 press conference. The sheriff had commissioned a “Cold Case Posse” to investigate the authenticity of the long-form birth certificate released by the White House on April 27, 2012.  The posse had concluded that the image “is a computer-generated forgery.”

The response we received from the sheriff’s office today was:  “No criminal investigation has been opened yet. The case is still under investigation and it is currently being determined where the investigation will go from here.”

Print media reports on the March 1, 2012 press conference held by the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office Cold Case Posse were generally short, with few details about the findings that “”probable cause exists indicating that forgery and fraud may have been committed.”  The Sheriff’s Department’s 15-page report detailing the conclusions states that INS records, the birth certificate image, and Obama’s purported Selective Service registration card were used to make its determinations.

Some articles opined that Sheriff Joe Arpaio is “in the spotlight” and incorrectly stated that the investigation focused on Obama’s “place of birth,” although the possibility of a foreign birth had been brought up by Mike Zullo, lead investigator of the team.  Other reports reframe the findings as “Obama conspiracy theories.”

On September 7, 2008, Obama stated on national television that he registered for the Selective Service in 1979, but the requirement to do so had been lifted until 1980.  A FOIA request made in late October of that year had been back-dated to two days after Obama’s televised appearance describing his purported Selective Service registration.  Two different record numbers were sent to two Arizona residents in 2009 who had made FOIA requests.  The Post & Email registered its own FOIA requests regarding Obama’s Selective Service registration inquiring as to why the results we received were different from another requester’s for the same information on Obama.   We were finally told, “We are unable to answer your remaining questions” with no explanation as to why not.

Why is no one in the media asking questions about the crimes that have been alleged to have been committed?

For months, several New Hampshire state representatives have deemed Obama’s long-form birth certificate a forgery, but the state Attorney General and Secretary of State have refused to investigate or withhold Obama’s name from the ballot.  If the document has been forged, are these officials committing a crime by allowing Obama on the ballot?  Early last month, an administrative judge in Georgia and the Secretary of State decided to place Obama’s name on the Georgia ballot, and similar determinations have been made in Indiana and Illinois.

Reporters at the Cold Case Posse news conference displayed anger at the conclusions reached by the team that the birth certificate image posted on the internet last April 27 as well as Obama’s Selective Service registration card are forgeries. Rather than asking questions of the White House or Obama, print media outlets have instead focused on Arpaio, who stated that the investigation revealed that the crimes of “fraud and forgery” have been committed against the people of Maricopa County, the state of Arizona, and the entire nation.

Prior to the March 1 presser announcing the posse’s conclusions, members of the major media had attempted to turn the focus back toward those asking questions rather than investigating the questions themselves.  The Associated Press has now begun to report the story without media bias.

The White House has issued no official response to the allegations, just as it did not respond to the charge of treason made by a state representative and a former Naval Lt. Commander with 25 years of service.  Instead, an Obama operative “tweeted out” a “light-hearted” and possibly misleading message which, instead of linking to the press conference, connected to the theme music from “The X Files,” a defunct television series which sought to solve “paranormal” and “unexplainable” phenomena.

Nevertheless, how would LaBolt explain away the claim of forgery of not one document, but two, if he were confronted?  Could he be considered a co-conspirator for not asking questions himself?

A short-form birth certificate bearing Obama’s name is also posted at the White House website, while the original short-form version released in June 2008 is green with black lettering.  The short form has also been judged a forgery by various analysts.

The Cold Case Posse stated that they determined that there was “probable cause” to launch a criminal investigation, but very little media attention has been paid to what might happen next.

“Fraud” is described as “as an intentional misrepresentation of material existing fact made by one person to another with knowledge of its falsity and for the purpose of inducing the other person to act, and upon which the other person relies with resulting injury or damage. Fraud may also be made by an omission or purposeful failure to state material facts, which nondisclosure makes other statements misleading.”

The crime of “forgery” is defined as “The making, drawing, or altering a document with the intent to defraud. A signature made without the person knowing of or consenting to it.”  It also includes“the production of a spurious work that is claimed to be genuine, as a coin, a painting, or the like.”

“Probable cause” is defined as:

A reasonable belief that a person has committed a crime. The test the court of appeals employs to determine whether probable cause existed for purposes of arrest is whether facts and circumstances within the officer’s knowledge are sufficient to warrant a prudent person to believe a suspect has committed, is committing, or is about to commit a crime.

Another dictionary states that “The probable cause standard is more important in Criminal Law than it is in Civil Law because it is used in criminal law as a basis for searching and arresting persons and depriving them of their liberty.”

When “probable cause” exists, an arrest or search warrant may be issued after being “judicially sanctioned and supported by probable cause.”

Does that mean that as the Maricopa County investigation continues, Obama or people around him could be arrested? questioned? subpoenaed at some point?

Given the results of the March 1 press conference, will the Democrat National Committee continue to have Obama run for re-election?  If so, is the DNC committing a crime?

Is the media wondering where it will scurry when the truth finally comes out?  Will questions then be asked of them as to why they failed to vet Obama before he occupied the White House for three years?  Did the media know that Obama was a follower or Saul Alinsky?

Why would Obama present fake documents to the public?  Is it because he is hiding an prior identity?  Why did the big media companies fail to look into his past?  Have internet news sites replaced the major media in performing their First Amendment function so that, if necessary, the people can “petition the government for a redress of grievances?”

How “grievous” is it to have a man occupying the White House whose past we do not know and who is the claimant of falsified records?  How many lies were told?

How many records were falsified to put “Barack Hussein Obama II” in the White House, and for what purpose?  If people knew the truth, would there be any chance that Obama would be, or could be, reelected?

Why is Obama’s response to complaints of treason the same as allegations of fraud and forgery?  Why isn’t the White House coming out and vigorously defending the documentation?

    The Fogblow transcript of Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse press conference deleted at least one of the questions that I put to the Sheriff. Just flat out deleted it! I called in on Rush’s talk show and his screener told me in a most defensive manner (and I paraphrase from memory), ‘We will never, NEVER, air anything to do with the birther stuff. That’s kooky.’ I explained to him that I had been at the press release conference and that the determination had been arrived at that the birth certificate presented to the American people is unquestionably a forgery. He did not beleive that the story was worth reporting. I emphasized that if such a thing had transpired with president Bush it would have been bigger than Watergate or the Iran Contra scandal. (Got that line from Jeff Crouere’s scathing article against the bias of major mass media outlets in thebayoubuzz.com.) Here is the question that I asked Sheriff Joe. I am reading from my notepad so it is not verbatim what I asked the Sheriff, but for all intents and purposes this is the question I posited: ‘In light of the findings of the Cold Case Posse investigation, is it not reasonable for Americans to conclude that — having fraudulently been represented or fraudulently represented himself as eligible to be president — Mr. Soetoro or Obama is, even now, in the ongoing commission of crimes against the highest law of this nation: the crime of conspiring to contravene and the contravention of the constitution as well as the criminal usurpation of the office of the president of the United States?’

    “…and upon which the other person relies with resulting injury or damage.”

    Interestingly the argument for dismissal has been there is no injury to any person, different than the whole. It’s as if the courts are saying that the change of law has not affected any one person differently than another and so it is accepted as legitimate. A no harm no foul kind of hands off approach to enforcing criminal law and the constitution.

    I submit that the setting up of a new form of government, even if not making use of it’s full powers, is the setting of a trap that once sprung will result in the form of government that was intended to never be allowed by the founders or the people and had they been made aware of that end form of government would never allow it. At the point the first action of this new government’s powers results in an injury to one person it has made itself criminal. There are numerous individuals that have been harmed to date. Some can never recover as they are dead. Who will be next, a person, a group, a religion, a nation or are the sights set so high that the world should tremble at the powers being assembled in DC with the consent of congress, the courts and the corporate media?

    Bari Shabazz who is Muslim, needs to be exposed, charged with Treason, Perjury and Election Fraud with Pelosi, Reid, Dodd, Biden, Michelle and Hillary for creating an illegal “no standing” clause for every Criminal Presentment served in every court which were all illegally “blocked” on orders of Hillary and Democrat planners that had to do with prosecuting Obama/Pelosi for falsifying DNC documents and a false vetting of Bari Shabazz aka/Barrak Obama, Barry Soetoro, Bari Shabazz/Usurper of POTUS born in 1959 in the Bronx to Ann Newman and Malcolm X. We have to ask: Who’s yo’ daddy? Malcolm X /Muslim/ racist/anti American, the anti thesis of respected Dr. Martin Luther King, a man of God. All a carefully orchestrated plan by many people and Democrats to push a Ursurper into the American Whitehouse to forward Muslim/Communist/anti American lifestyles to destroy America as we know it. Since there are many people like them and an abundance of stupid people to also follow them, America is being bankrupted slowly by all the above while Democrat pockets are being lined in the biggest sham ever perpetrated on America. Include Military Command Racketeers that are also playing along with this to keep paychecks/retirement, it all adds up to usurpation, misprision of felony and an attempt by hard core Democrats to get their way and be above the law at all costs. Bari still holds dual citizenships which is being hidden at Perkins & Coie in Seattle, the DNC Law Firm, which has been paid over $3 million in taxpayers money through a “Presidential Protection Clause” to keep his “records/background” sealed at this time. Why, if there is nothing to hide? Need we say more? Also, see http://www.marthatrowbridgeterribletruth.wordpress.com for more truth on the Muslim POTUS/Usurper/Secret Agent Man. Ask your search box, “Who Is Bari Shabazz?” He needs to show us his “citizenship papers” more than any other document, as being a “dual citizen” is not allowed under POTUS requirments. I see that the Constitution has been “rewritten” under Democrat rule but I see that the Constitution is still in it’s original written form and smoke and mirrors won’t cloud the writing of the founding fathers penmanship. We just need a “new judicial” and to replace almost everyone in Congress and the Senate to get them to follow the Constitution. The Veteran Defenders OF America have called for a complete washout of all politicians to regain control of our government and return it to “We The People” and again follow Constitutional Law. We need a new culture that will serve the people of America, not just themselves.

    I watched Judge Andrew Napolitano with delight on his FOX TV show “Freedom Watch”. Ironically, Freedom was recently cancelled for being too truthful and pro-constitutional. One thing that the Judge made perfectly clear is that the provisions to restore the republic, when there has been a coup, are RIGHT THERE in THOSE OLD DUSTY PAPERS. The people have the right to throw out the invaders, by any means necessary. We have all seen how useless lawsuits and ballot challenges are, because those laws & rules are NO LONGER in EFFECT. Sheriff Joe did a GREAT job ! just enough rope let out. Andrew Breitbart was murdered to prevent “THE OBAMA COLLEGE TAPES” from vetting Soetoro. Sean Hannity said — FINALLY SAID – I will release those Breitbart tapes on my show within 2 weeks. I hope, pray, and predict that the entire lid blows off the Obama conspiracy fraud by March 23, 2012. Line in the sand. Obama surrenders by March 23rd or else the call goes out to unleash HELL! The legal RE- Take over of the USA. That is what hour we are at!
