NPR Falsely Reports Arpaio “Jailed” After Contempt Finding


by Sharon Rondeau

(Mar. 28, 2018) — NPR posted an article on Wednesday which erroneously reported that former Maricopa County Sheriff Joseph Arpaio was “jailed” after he was found by a federal judge to be in criminal contempt of court.

Arpaio received a pardon from President Donald Trump on August 25, 2017.

The article reacted to a statement Arpaio made while campaigning for the Arizona U.S. Senate seat which Jeff Flake will be vacating once his term ends in early January 2019.

Similar to an article at The Hill on Tuesday, the writer was responding to Arpaio’s pledge, if elected, to raise the issue of the “long-form” birth certificate image posted at found by an investigation he authorized to be a “computer-generated forgery.”

The mainstream media is well aware of, although unwilling to investigate, the conclusions reached by Mike Zullo that Barack Hussein Obama’s only publicly-proffered “documentation” is fraudulent.  Zullo’s findings were made public in three press conferences held over the course of the five-year investigation which ultimately revealed that two forensic analysts who also examined the birth certificate image arrived at the same conclusion.

Arpaio’s comments on “the birth certificate” began in a light-hearted way while including some of the background of the investigation.

NPR is not the first media outlet to erroneously report that Arpaio was jailed after U.S. District Court Judge Susan R. Bolton issued her verdict in July 2017.  The finding stemmed from a civil-rights lawsuit filed in late 2008 by Hispanic plaintiffs who claimed that Arpaio’s deputies discriminated against them while performing traffic stops in Maricopa County.

Arpaio was scheduled to be sentenced on October 4, but Trump’s presidential pardon negated the need for a sentencing hearing.

Arpaio has appealed the contempt finding, claiming that numerous irregularities and conflicts of interest converged to produce the conviction, sought by the U.S. Justice Department under Obama and continued under the Trump administration.

NPR reports that it receives approximately 9% of its funding from the American taxpayer.

Editor’s Note:  Later on Wednesday, astute reader “Bob” noted in a comment that NPR’s story has been corrected.

    Gary, you nailed it 1,000 %. Thanks! Indeed, keep spreading the word. We still have lots of
    opposition, but I hope soon the dam will burst. While Trump has most if not all of Arpaio’s
    evidence, I wonder what other evidence Trump has that only he possesses. If I recall correctly,
    Zullo had stated Trump has all their info. Moreover, Trump had stated he sent his own
    investors to Hawaii and claimed, “you’ll never believe what they found”.

    Hopefully soon the “fat lady” will sing and the ball game will come to a conclusion. Perhaps
    then Obama and his gang will get fitted with orange jump suits.

    I posted the following to a similar article yesterday which said the birth certificate issue had been debunked. LOL. The author is an ignoramus or more likely an Obot shill. FACTS: Obama’s “birth certificate” is a digital FORGERY and a laughable one at that. 2. Obama is using a STOLEN 042 prefix Connecticut SSN. He is also associated with other SSNs as well as his “wife”. and 3. His FORGED Selective Service registration is a FORGERY; the only SSN card in existence with an inverted two-digit postal stamp. Obots, the media and our so-called representatives can spin this all day long but it doesn’t change these incontrovertible FACTS. That is why the issue will not die. It has nothing to with race. Just follow the evidence. Finally aka Obama (real name Barry Soetoro) an Indonesian by law is NOT a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN. By his own admission his father was a Kenyan born citizen of Great Britain and not even a permanent resident of the United States. Investigator Mike Zullo says there is absolutely NO EVIDENCE that Obama was even in the state of Hawaii before the age of five let alone born there. Furthermore there no legitimate birth records substantiating a Hawaii birth have ever been produced! For those with an open mind (not Obama sycophants) who are intrigued by anything that has been stated here…all you have to do is do your own research. Read the writings of Mario Apuzzo re: Natural Born Citizen. View the Arpaio press conferences on You Tube which prove the forgeries. In fact the Dec. 15, 2016 press conference proved that they discovered the actual Hawaii birth certificate that was used as the TEMPLATE for the Obama forgery! Like I said this issue will not go away because the FACTS are that Obama is a FRAUD. Also, Trump was provided all the evidence by a delegation from Arizona in 2012. The only reason he LIED late in the campaign and said that Obama was born in Hawaii was for political expediency; to take the heat off him and so that he could concentrate on winning the election. Expect him to revisit this issue as part of the efforts to drain the swamp. Obots can scream and ridicule the “birthers” all they want. They cannot undo the truth!

    NEVER-presIDent RADIO (NPR) says, “… Less than a month after being jailed, President Trump pardoned him….” = RELYING ON LYING


    ANSWER: All US media, except actual factual media like The P&E et al, face retaliation if they don’t erect PICKET-FENCES-DEFENSES to protect THE Obama-Soetoro II ID-LIE…and, besides, BLACK LIES MATTER (even though Obama is white trash).

    Virtually all US media are RELYING ON LYING to avoid retaliation for disclosing the full identity of NEVER-ID NEVER-presIDent SOETORO-OBAMA II.

    The US media syndication avoided filming FDR in a wheelchair or walking to the podium on crutches to minimize his physical weakness during the tenuous strenuous times of the Great Depression and WWII.

    Today, Obama’s SANCTUARY-MEDIA avoids showing Obama’s presIDential weakness on his ID-crutches and, so, they actively ridicule any messenger, and his message, in order to run away from ID-REALITY…and the media likely sees themselves as doing something patriotic in not revealing their potentially-riotous “universe shattering” Obama presIDential ID-cover-up 08-28-08- TODAY, don’t you think?


    Media then: hiding FDR’s crippling polio (infantile paralysis)
    Media now: hiding Obama’s crippling ID-portfolio (infantile paralysis) >>>NPR, disclose to America Item 207, OK?

    FDR: fireside chats as TRUMP: fireside tweets

    NPR: publishing patriotic ID-lies as P&E: publishing national IDiotic-lies
