“I DON’T CARE WHERE HE CAME FROM”
by Sharon Rondeau
(Jan. 28, 2018) — In an article posted on Saturday in the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the respective U.S. Senate candidacies of former Maricopa County, AZ Sheriff Joseph Arpaio and U.S. Army private Bradley Manning, now known as Chelsea Manning, convicted of leaking classified information to Wikileaks in 2010 were discussed.
Both Manning and Arpaio were presented as “polarizing” figures, and both received executive action on their respective convictions.
Just prior to leaving office, Barack Hussein Obama commuted Manning’s 35-year prison sentence, and last August, President Donald Trump issued a full pardon to Arpaio after he was convicted by a federal judge of misdemeanor criminal contempt of court.
Both candidates’ convictions remain on their records, however, although Arpaio’s legal team has appealed Judge Susan R. Bolton’s decision in his case.
In the article, Arpaio is presented as “a prominent figure in the birther movement that contended Obama was not born in the United States.”
The article continued with “The former sheriff apparently retains that belief, as he recently told WABC radio that Obama’s birth certificate is a ‘forgery'” without explaining how Arpaio arrived at that conclusion.
Since announcing his Senate candidacy, Arpaio has granted interviews to Jeanine Pirro of “Justice with Judge Jeanine” and WABC’s Rita Cosby, to which the LVRJ article undoubtedly referred, during which he raised the matter of the birth certificate investigation.
“I don’t care where he came from,” Arpaio has told a number of mainstream journalists in regard to Obama. Nevertheless, The Washington Examiner reported in September 2016 that the investigation focused on Obama’s “national origins.”
CNN has also misreported the issue.
At approximately 1:18 PM EST, The Post & Email contacted the article’s author, Debra Saunders, using the email address provided at the bottom of the article, with the following:
Your article should note, however, that Arpaio never questioned where Obama was born, a fact he has stated repeatedly when interviewed. The 5+-year investigation into the image posted at whitehouse.gov was not about Obama’s birthplace, but rather, about a “computer-generated forgery.”
Toward the end of the investigation, two forensic experts were consulted and later declared to be in agreement with the lead investigator’s conclusion that the birth certificate image is fraudulent based on “nine points of forgery.”
In early March 2012, Obama’s purported Selective Service registration form was also pronounced fraudulent:
Of course, the ramifications of such findings are enormous but not reported by major media. Why not?
