The Silence is Deafening

Russ Steele

While the US Press has decided to ignore the result of Sheriff Joe Arpario’s investigation into Obama’s presidential qualifications the international press has not. This from the BBC in the UK:

Joe Arpaio: Barack Obama birth proof ‘may be forged’

According to the sheriff, the investigators compared the electronic copy of Mr Obama’s birth certificate with one known to be genuine.

The conclusion that “probable cause” existed warranted a criminal investigation and greater scrutiny of presidential candidates, Mr Arpaio said.

This from the the English version of PRAVDA:

Arizona sheriff finds Obama presidential qualifications forged

The silence from the main stream media in the US is deafening. It almost seems as if the press is terrified to even think the question, let alone ask it: Is the President a criminal? The press in Arpaio’s audience were certainly asking him to state precisely that, yet nowhere has the question been asked of the White House by the press. Instead the American Press is aggressively protecting the presumed President of the United States, pushing the fraud upon both America and the world, supporting a man who may well have usurped the office.

Now my questions is, if the US Press is convinced that Obama’s documents are authentic, why are they remaining silent? Why are they not doing there own robust investigation to prove Sheriff Joe is wrong?  Why the deafening silence?

    Candyass Republicans. What’s your next question?

    ” Obama Is, Has, and Was Given/Born With….”

    Many Americans today seem to be unable to distinguish between the three different but related concepts.

    Obama is a cheerful and intelligent human being.
    Obama deeply loves his family.
    Obama is a great father and husband.
    Obama is the President of the United States.

    Obama has chosen to be very well educated.
    Obama has chosen to run for and win multiple offices.
    Obama has chosen to keep a healthy body and mind, by choosing basketball and body surfing and golf, as both exercise and relaxation, to maintain his cheerful and intelligent self in peak condition to meet life’s challenges.

    “anima sana in corpore sano,” which translates to “Healthy Soul in a Healthy Body”.

    Obama was given (by God or evolution, take your pick) a large and genetically healthy body, and a quick mind, which he has chosen to use for the public good.
    Obama was given, by the United States of America’s Constitution, full and complete, Presidential qualified citizenship. Even Michelle Bachman and the State of Georgia agree on this, along with every billionaire on the planet, with the possible exception of minor billionaire Donald Trump, and a couple of folks in Nevada County.

    Good luck and thanks for all the voters, Mr. Steele!

    Some important reading about Sheriff Joe:

    • John Galt says:

      I’m disappointed in you Michael.

      It’s reported that you are a computer professional. Are you the only one in the County that doesn’t have access to Adobe’s graphic tools which clearly demonstrate that the long-form birth certificate published on the White House’s own website is a forgery?

      When Obama published his long form birth certificate on the White House website, I advised you and others to download the file and open it with Adobe’s tool suite. (Use their free trial if you must.)

      Why have you not done this?

      Or did you do it ….and are merely a co-conspirator in the fraud.

      What are we to conclude about you when you attack Sheriff Joe, while knowing (or you should know ) that the birth certificate is a fraud.

      THE FACT IS, that the current long form birth certificate is manufactured. The various digital “layers” are completely exposed. Had the document been a scanned original, there would be just 1 “layer”…like an Polariod photograph.

      (Note: It’s possible that even though the document if forged, Obama could still be a natural born citizen.)

      • Michael Anderson says:

        Dear “John Galt,”

        It’s been reported that you are a coward who hides behind the name of a character in “Atlas Shrugged.” Who is John Galt?

        I usually don’t talk to people who don’t exist but I’ll make an exception this time.

        First of all, Sheriff Joe is a bully who thinks he is above the law. One of these days he’s going to end up in jail, hopefully wearing pink underwear. I’d be all ears if the tooth fairy was to make a claim that she had new evidence of Obama’s birth certificate being a fake. But not Sheriff Joe, because he’s a clown. In my book, fairies trump clowns, every time.

        Second of all, I posted the NoBama link to make the point that many prominent conservatives also think Sheriff Joe is a clown, and it makes them crazy when other conservatives bring up this birther crap. That’s right John, conservatives who are not insane on this issue get pissed off when other conservatives keep raising this idiotic birther crap.

        Lastly, even if there are questions about the birth certificate (which there aren’t, except in the minds of people who have no sense of perspective), Obama is still a natural-born US citizen because his mother was a US citizen when he was born.

        I posted many comments, with lots of links, on the topic of constitutional legitimacy over on George Rebane’s blog the last time the idiocy came up. I won’t repost them here. The bottom line is this: “Andrew Malcolm, of the Los Angeles Times, has argued that Obama would be eligible for the presidency, because his mother was an American citizen, irrespective of where he was born, saying that Obama’s mother ‘could have been on Mars when wee Barry emerged and he’d still be American.’ According to UCLA Law Professor Eugene Volokh, in the hypothetical scenario that Obama was born outside the U.S., he would not be a natural-born citizen since the then-applicable law would have required Obama’s mother to have been in the U.S. at least five years after the age of 14′, but Ann Dunham was three months shy of her 19th birthday when Obama was born.”

        If this goes to the Supreme Court, Obama will be still be president because no one in their right mind would call Obama’s presidency illegitimate just because his mother was 3 months shy of being 19 years old when he was born. Not gonna happen.

        It’s a done deal, “John.” Get over it. Find something interesting to talk about. And while you’re at, stop hiding behind the name of a character in a book of fiction. The real world is a lot more exciting, and being accountable for what you write will help you keep from appearing to be someone that needs to be 5150d.

    I looked at the original image and they were so dumb that they didn’t flatten the image after it was edited. You could look at the layers and see all of the edits made to the document. Now why it was photo shopped, I don’t know but I suspect it was because the original scan was not clean and someone decided to make it more presentable. As for who did it, it could have been the White House or it could have been the records people in Hawaii. The problem is no explanation was given. Explain it and release the original scan and all the discussion will go away. I think Obama doesn’t care about the discussion because it distracts from the real issue of his unconstitutional actions. He knows he doesn’t have to release a clean document because the birth certificate will not cost him any votes.

  7. Dena says:

    I did a little more poking around to try and find a good article I saw several months back about Obama’s birth certificate and couldn’t find it. However what I did find was this
    It seems we were not given a true copy of the certificate but instead a made up image but it wasn’t Obama’s fault. The software used to scan the image produces some really funky output that looks like it was altered by Photoshop. The question is how come I had to go to an odd ball web site to get a report on it? It should have been page one news.

  8. David Maggs says:

    I cannot believe that you are all still trying to push this subject, and that you all think that this is a “rational” thought?

    Wouldn’t it be a “reasonable and rational” thought that former Presidential Candidate John McCain wouldn’t have played this card (as we’d be dealing with him & Mrs. Palin at this time) “exposing this fact” if there was a ounce of substance to it?

    Jeeze, guy’s….. I refuse believe that you are all this dopey (at least in hoping) as I have to wonder how all of you have made it this far in life.

    We hear off of these “stories” about how the document has been “photo-shopped” and that the files in Hawaii were changed 45 years ago, as the Democrats knew that a poor black kid (born to a white mother) that was born in Hawaii, and then raised by his white grandparents in Kansas, who then managed to go to Harvard Law School was going to be the President of the USA?

    Is that what you expect for a rational person to believe? If so, I’m really disappointed in the intelligence of my community, and the people here.

  9. The local liberals are still arguing and pursuing the “grassy knoll” shooter Mr. Maggs. After fifty years you would think those folks would just leave it alone but they don’t. Even well know Liberal Kevin Costner made a bigtime movie about it. And golly, it seems when we hit the remote we keep seeing conspiracy after conspiracy analyzed and discussed (including the Free Masons). Why the left and their cohorts in the press are afraid to even discuss this is amazing. Heck, even George Bush was supposed to be down in Alabama and AWOL for a year the liberals say. I see that one on cable still! So, I guess Maggs and the left just want their conspiracies to be in the public square.

  10. M. Anderson says:

    So according to Wonder Todd (famous TSA celebrity that he is), one tinfoil hat theory is just as good as another.

    Thanks. Duly noted.

  11. David Maggs says:

    No Todd, we’re just the “folks” who want viable proof of any such conspiracy before we go off on a tangent about the Grassy Knoll, or the supposed Muslim that is in the Whitehouse, or the Birth certificate (In other words we look at the proof, or in this case the lack of).

    Like I said before, I’m really disappointed in the lack of intelligence of my community, and the people here.

  12. Even the local left as exhibited by their comments here defending the lack of research into this issue are brainwashed or simply just arrogant. No discussion necessary when you become a left wing brown nose apparently. Maggs is not a local resident if he exists at all, so any opinion about our county or local community is fallacious. It appears he is a professor at UC Davis, God help the kids!

    I want to know why the left keeps their conspiracies alive? MichaelA does not answer the question and the issue is simple. If their is a large contingent of people out there who thinks Obama is a phony American (legally) why would that not be pursued to the ultimate proof. These liberals give Rush an anal exam everyday but not discuss without derision the status of the President.

    Since I am a famous person in the annals of TSA x-rays, I know what it is like to be a famous celebrity. We get the focus of the press all the time.

  13. Todd Juvinall says: is the email he/she used on my site. It came back s phony.

  14. Keith Kerns says:

    Russ, you are truly an idiot.
    Thank you for making it so obvious.

    • Todd Juvinall says:

      Russ Kerns is a nimrod. What a hoot!

    • Russ says:


      Perhaps you can provide some details, I am more that willing to mend my way, but could use a little of your insight to help me recover.

    • John Galt says:

      Thank you Comrade Keith Kerns for yet another perfect execution of Saul Lewenski’s tactics.

  15. B White says:

    The left seems very interested in this issue. In fact, relatively speaking, they seem more sensitive to this than the right. What does that indicate?

  16. Greg Goodknight says:

    Whether Obama is reelected or not, expect all the good dirt to come out after the election. Even fellow travelers who do not want to be the reason for him not winning a second term won’t want to be scooped once that is no longer an issue.

    I am unmoved by the latest cert stories, as it seem to me that the simplest explanation is that photoshop is how Hawaii assembles the issued legal image, including faux engraving, from the originals either in paper or microfiche form.

  17. Todd Juvinall says:

    Now if yu want to talk about Allende, Kennedy or Jack Ruby, the left will honor us with hours of detail.

    • John Galt says:

      Good grief Goodknight: The Apple II wasn’t available until 1977. The IBM PC in 1981. The MacIntosh in 1984.

      Adobe itself wasn’t founded until 1982

      In other words NEITHER the Software NOR the Hardware existed in the year of Obama’s birth to create such a document.

      I hope you’re not thinking we’re dumb enough to believe that INSTEAD of taking 20 seconds to make a photocopy, the hospital scanned the original, opened it up in Photoshop, corrected a few errors and typos, and added a signature.
