Media Cant — or Won’t — Report Accurately on Obama Birth Certificate Forgery

WHATEVER HAPPENED TO FACT-CHECKING?

by Sharon Rondeau

Why are there different versions of Obama’s purported long-form birth certificate?

(Jan. 12, 2018) — An article published on Thursday by The Daily Caller misreports that former Maricopa County Sheriff Joseph M. Arpaio accused Barack Hussein Obama of creating a forgery of his own long-form birth certificate.

Arpaio has never made such a claim.

After Arpaio announced on Tuesday that he would seek the U.S. Senate seat currently occupied by the retiring Jeff Flake, mainstream media outlets requested interviews of the former six-term sheriff of the fourth-largest county in the United States.

On April 27, 2011, the Obama White House posted what it said was a scan of a certified copy of Obama’s “long-form” birth certificate allegedly obtained from the Hawaii Department of Health (HDOH). The image was uploaded after then-businessman and reality-television star Donald Trump pressured the White House for approximately three months to release proof that Obama was born in the United States and, therefore, presumably eligible to serve as President of the United States.

Article II, Section 1, clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution requires that the president and commander-in-chief be a “natural born Citizen.”

Beginning in January of that year, Trump had made a number of high-profile media appearances during which he expressed doubts that Obama was American-born or speculated that something significant in Obama’s background had been withheld from the American people.

Although released to much fanfare and covered by an adoring press on that Wednesday morning in late April 2011, several graphics experts declared the image a poorly-assembled forgery within hours or days of its appearance.

In August 2011, 242 constituents of Arpaio’s approached him with a petition requesting that he launch an investigation into the authenticity of the image so as to ensure that their votes in the upcoming 2012 presidential election would not be disenfranchised. Arpaio agreed, delegating the task to his “Cold Case Posse,” led by former New Jersey detective Mike Zullo.

Arpaio had fully expected to quickly “clear the president” once a preliminary analysis of the image was completed, but within several days, Zullo was forced to inform Arpaio that the image was highly problematic.

The investigation continued, ultimately lasting more than five years and concluding in December 2016.  During a third and final press conference, Zullo revealed that two forensic analysts, one in Italy and one in Hawaii, had studied the image and agreed with his early conclusion that the image is a “computer-generated forgery.”

The mainstream media did its best to minimize, marginalize, or completely disregard the findings from the investigation and obviously continue to misrepresent them in new reportage since Arpaio declared his Senate candidacy.

While Zullo stated early in the investigation that he believed he had identified the individual(s) who had committed the forgery, neither he nor Arpaio ever stated that it was Obama himself.

As with many other mainstream outlets, The DC article describes Obama as “Hawaiian-born” utilizing the common media technique of focusing on Obama’s purported birthplace rather than the document forgery posted on an official government website.

The image was uploaded “with the intent to deceive,” Zullo has said in a number of interviews with The Post & Email and on Carl Gallups’s “Freedom Friday” radio show over the last five years.

The fourth paragraph of The DC article inaccurately states that Arpaio was given a pardon by Trump “after he was imprisoned.” Although convicted by U.S. District Court Judge Susan R. Bolton on July 31, 2017 of misdemeanor criminal contempt of court arising from a civil suit, Arpaio was never imprisoned. He faced the possibility of up to six months in jail, but a sentencing hearing for October 4, 2017 was vacated after Trump issued the pardon on August 25.

    Isn’t the US Government the bigger culprit here?

    We focus on Obama as a lyin’ usurper but he would never have gotten into the White House if Treason Queen Pelosi had not forged his passport there. And today MILLIONS OF MINIONS CALLED “US GOVERNMENT” still follow her evil deed lead to help cover for him 08-28-08- 2018!

    Therefore, isn’t every member of government indictable for aiding and abetting a criminal presIDent Soetoro-Obama II (SO2)? Shouldn’t they all lose their pensions to help pay off the national debt SO2 generated?

    Unless they are RELYING ON LYING, how will professional historians ever accurately explain the missing irrefutable ID of SO2 without adding a footnote disclaimer to their history books that states:

    “WARNING: Most Americans believe SO2 never was a presIDent…only a government-protected ID-Thief-in-Chief since 08-28-08.”

    Then WaPo didn’t get it right, either. They have it backwards!

    The Washington Post also had an article. This was part of the article:

    “Arpaio pushed the theory that someone copied and pasted Obama’s information onto the birth certificate of a woman born in Hawaii.”

    It is clear that aka obama is an unindicted criminal identity fraud, so the natural question that follows is why would he lie about his origins? The most likely and obvious answer is that he believed that if the truth had been known, the American people would have rejected him either as ineligible or undesirable, the leading disqualifying truth being that he is foreign born.

    A second possibility is that he purposefully set up the unresolvable controversy about his place of birth as a ruse in order to distract from his real disqualifier, i.e., that being born to an alien father, he is simply not a natural born Citizen as required of all presidents by the Constitution.

    A third possibility is that even though he may have been USA born to USA citizen parents, he truly was adopted by his Indonesian step father, Lolo Soetoro. As an adoptee, the young aka obama would likely have been issued a new birth certificate indicating Soetoro as the father and aka obama would have become a citizen of Indonesia. However, upon reaching the age of majority, the USA would have recognized aka obama’s right to reassert his USA citizenship (and probably reissue his original birth certificate), but quite likely he simply was too lazy to bother. In such case he would have no original birth certificate, rather just the one created during the adoption.

    What we do know is that aka obama is an unrepentant liar, so all of his claim must be taken as doubtful, thus many theories exist as to who are aka obama’s true genetic parents (and all have flaws).

    Ann Dunham and Obama Sr. — no marriage certificate, no real evidence of any relationship nor evidence for even a plausible chance of a relationship. No pictures of a pregnant Ann. All aka obama’s identity documents are fakes and there is no real resemblance between the two “obamas,” thus the official story most certainly is a lie (and whatever the real truth is, is unknown and would need confirmation by DNA testing to be believable).

    Ann Dunham and Frank Davis — aka obama has very little resemblance to Davis or his legitimate son. Supposed naughty pictures taken of Dunham by Davis are not pictures of Ann, but of another, older woman. A very great age difference existed between the young Ann and the older commie pervert (but, hey, the family were scum, so who knows?).

    Stanley Dunham (the white grandfather) and an uknown black(ish) woman — the only thing supporting this theory is that there is a very strong family resemblance between aka obama and his white grandfather and that the grandparents acted more like the parents than did Ann (who essentially abandoned him while she did not abandon her true bio daughter). Also, no photos of a then pregnant Ann are known to exist.

    Ann Dunham and cult leader Muhammad Subuh Sumohadiwidjojo — some pictures of the young cult leader look remarkably like aka obama even though the resemblance fades to next to nothing in his old age. Also Loretta Fuddy (state keeper of aka obama’s “BC” who was the only person killed in a mysterious plane crash off Hawaii) and Ann Dunham (the white mother) were longtime members of the Subud cult, so the connection cannot be ignored.

    Malcolm X and JoAnn Newman (from NY) — I don’t know much about this theory other than it is very persistent and is tied to aka obama’s supposed near fatal car accident as a young man in Hawaii (thus the supposed head scars).

    Malcolm X and Valerie Serruf — by this theory there was a half-white Obama child born in Kenya who actually “passed through the hands” of the Kenyan grandmother, but the criminal identity fraud aka obama was given this other boy’s identity when they both were toddlers (some claim the real obama died as a child). Supposedly aka obama himself may not have known his true identity until he was a young man.

    Whoever the genetic parents were, it is fairly certain that aka obama was adopted by his Indonesian step-father Lolo Soetoro thereby compromising his American citizenship. While the evidence is strong that aka obama legally became a Soetoro, it is unclear that this would result in a permanent loss of citizenship if he reasserted it when he obtained the age of majority (however this would still not make him a natural born Citizen).

    The American people deserve to know the truth and the rule of law demands that aka obama be held to account for his fraud and many other crimes.
