ARPAIO AGAIN REFERS TO “SENSITIVE INVESTIGATIONS”
by Sharon Rondeau, h/t CDR Charles F. Kerchner, Jr. (Ret.)
(Jun. 19, 2014) — In a face-to-face interview with radio show host Rusty Humphries on Thursday, Maricopa County, AZ Sheriff Joe Arpaio discussed the massive influx of illegal aliens on the Texas-Arizona border which the Obama regime has allowed, if not encouraged.
Arpaio, who celebrated his 82nd birthday on Saturday, is serving his sixth term as Maricopa County sheriff and recently decided not to seek the governorship of Arizona.
As the chairman of the National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers (NAFBPO) George Taylor told The Post & Email last week, Arpaio said that drug smuggling is a major reason for illegals to cross the border. “We must secure our border,” he told Humphries.
When Humphrey asked if the “dumping” of illegals in Maricopa County was purposeful given his intolerance of people entering his county illegally, Arpaio said that he “has his own theory” as to why thousands are being allowed in from Central America. “I believe that they want controversy,” Arpaio said of the Obama regime. He added that he does not believe the American people are “getting the full story” about the unaccompanied minors who have been reportedly streaming across the border and being detained in “warehouses.” Arpaio then asked Humphries rhetorically why the media has not been allowed to see “the kids” flowing over the border, referring to the very limited media access which has been allowed by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). “When they’re caught…they’re sending these people to New York, everywhere in the United States,” Arpaio said, denying that the situation is a humanitarian crisis, as Obama has said.
Arpaio was interviewed earlier on Thursday by Neil Cavuto of Fox News wherein he said that the same illegal aliens end up in his jail repeatedly. Speaking on the same topic with Humphries, he said that he recently wrote to DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson, supplying the names of the repeat-offender illegals and requesting an explanation. Arpaio then said that the letter was given to “some bureaucrat at ICE,” who offered a nominal response. “I would like to know why they keep coming back to jail on state charges…They keep coming back on serious crimes, violating their own criteria when they should be deported…” Arpaio said.
Arpaio told Humphries of his 55-year career in law enforcement, including as a federal drug enforcement agent both overseas and domestically. He stated that he believes the Obama regime is persecuting him for his bold stance against illegal aliens and criminals but that he will not retreat from his position.
At the 10:00 mark, Arpaio mentioned ongoing “sensitive investigations,” referring specifically to the probe of the long-form birth certificate image presented to the public by the White House on April 27, 2011 purportedly to prove that Obama was born in the state of Hawaii, as he has claimed since 2007.
Arpaio made a similar comment on a previous show of Cavuto’s approximately two weeks ago, referring to “sensitive investigations,” but Cavuto did not ask him to elaborate.
A literary agent’s biography heralding Obama’s first book in 1991 stated that Obama was “born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.” The White House has offered no explanation as to why Obama was noted as foreign-born by his literary agent; various African newspapers since 2004; the Kenya ambassador to the U.S., Peter Ogego; or members of the Kenyan Parliament in 2010.
In 2008, a “short-form” Certification of Live Birth was posted at The Daily KOS which was never verified as authentic by the Hawaii Department of Health (HDOH). In 2009, then-White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs had said that the image was Obama’s only “birth certificate” and claimed that it had somehow come from the White House to a WND reporter who pressed him on the issue.
After Donald Trump pushed the issue of Obama’s eligibility, and particularly his birthplace, into the public sphere in early 2011, Obama reportedly sent his personal attorney to retrieve two certified copies of his original, long-form birth certificate from the HDOH, allegedly posting a scan of the document on the White House website. He then gave a short press conference in which he took ownership of the image before flying to Chicago to tape an interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Within 24 hours, graphics experts declared the image a forgery.
In September 2011, 250 members of two Tea Party organizations approached Arpaio with concerns that their votes in the upcoming presidential election the following year would be disenfranchised if Obama had misrepresented his eligibility or any other facts about his life, requesting an investigation. Arpaio agreed, but in order to avoid taxpayer expense because of the controversial nature of the probe, he delegated his Cold Case Posse, a non-profit entity formed in 2006 to assist the sheriff’s office, to conduct it.
On March 1, 2012, posse lead investigator Michael Zullo and Arpaio announced in a formal press conference that they had found the birth certificate image, as well as Obama’s Selective Service registration form, to be “computer-generated forgeries.”
A second press conference in July of that year revealed that further investigation ruled out virtually all doubt that the birth certificate image was fraudulent. After calling upon Congress to launch its own investigation, Arpaio and Zullo were vilified by the media, who refused to report their findings.
When Humphries asked Arpaio if the illegals being “dumped” in his county could be because of his investigation of the birth certificate, Arpaio replied, “I’m such a high-profile guy on immigration,” but then said he is concerned that a government document has been fabricated, which is a federal felony.
Among the mainstream media, The Washington Times has alone reported the findings that Obama’s birth certificate and Selective Service registration form are “computer-generated forgeries” and has published full-page advertisements placed by private citizens. Alternative media and blogs have aggressively covered the doubts about Obama’s life story and constitutional eligibility since 2008 after commentator Chris Matthews and Hillary Clinton raised questions in their public statements.
Last fall, Zullo announced on Carl Gallups’ “Freedom Friday” radio show that Arpaio had launched a second investigation stemming from that of the Cold Case Posse and that the IP numbers of certain Obama regime operatives had been traced “into the White House.”
In February, Gallups said on his show that “major media” had agreed to publicize Arpaio’s soon-to-be-announced findings. Several weeks ago, Zullo told Gallups that although a March press release had been planned, new information had come to light which prolonged Arpaio’s work and that a new date had not been set given the fluidity of the developments.
Toward the end of the interview, Arpaio turned the conversation to his claim that the mainstream media has not covered his work properly. “If you can’t get the message out through normal media, at least you can do it the other way,” Arpaio said, referring to social media. Although he said he does not know how to use Twitter, he has an account at @RealSheriffJoe and posts regularly on Facebook, where he reports there are about 500,000 followers.
