Arpaio Obama probe finds ‘national security threat’

Comments Off on Arpaio Obama probe finds ‘national security threat’

Here’s the latest I can find right now on the just finished News Conference by Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Arizona on the Obama birth certificate on going investigation.

After determining earlier this year there is probable cause to suspect the document released by the White House as Barack Obama’s birth certificate is a forgery, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio said today he believes his Cold Case Posse’s investigation should be advanced to the federal government, based on further information released today at a press conference under way now in Phoenix that is being live-streamed by WND.

Cold Case Posse lead investigator Mike Zullo said the new information confirms the document presented to the American public in April 2011 is undoubtedly fraudulent.

Arpaio told WND he intends to move the investigation and the new information to a higher authority within the federal government because of what he calls an imminent threat to national security and U.S. immigration laws. The threat is posed by a flaw in Hawaii’s law discovered by his investigators that allows a foreigner to obtain a Hawaii birth certificate.

“Although I am having a difficult time deciding who to forward this information to given the fact that the obvious choices report directly to the president, I cannot stand by and hold on to information that threatens to weaken national security,” Arpaio said.

Arpaio said he intends on keeping a case file open if more information surfaces or if federal authorities decide to ignore the case.

Zullo explained that along with new information discovered regarding the birth certificate since the posse’s March 1 press conference, his team has discovered Hawaii provides easy access to a birth certificate, even if the child wasn’t born in the state.

Under Hawaii Revised Statute 338-17.8, a person only has to be an established resident of Hawaii, not necessarily a U.S. citizen, and pay taxes there for one year to be able to register an out-of-state or foreign-born person with an official Hawaii birth certificate.

“If a nation’s security is only as strong as its weakest link, then America may be in serious trouble,” Arpaio said in a statement. “Hawaii may be our weakest link and could have a serious impact on our nation’s immigration policy.”

Among the new findings presented by lead Cold Case Posse investigator Mike Zullo:

  • The sheriff’s investigators have learned of a birth certificate coding system that indicates the White House document has been altered.
  • An interview with the Hawaii official who allegedly signed the Obama document in 1961, Verna K.L. Lee, provided further confirmation of the coding anomalies.
  • Investigators were troubled to find key information missing on the verification document Hawaii provided to Arizona’s secretary of state in May.
  • Hawaii’s deputy attorney general, Jill T. Nagamine, confirm the state has a birth document on file for Obama. But she would not confirm on the record that the White House document matched what was on file with the Hawaii Department of Health.
  • The sheriff’s investigators interviewed three persons of interest who have provided additional information in the case.

We also looked into the president’s selective service registration card and found that it, too, appeared to be fraudulent,” Arpaio said.

Investigators since then have traveled to Hawaii and have interviewed more witnesses, the sheriff said.

Addressing the coding issue, Zullo explained that the Hawaii Department of Health, which categorized vital information issued at the time of the president’s birth, used specific number codes that were written in pencil to transfer information from a paper birth certificate to a database file.

Hand written codes on Obama birth document

The codes seen on the document issued by the White House are not consistent with the information entered into the various fields, indicating the document has been altered or amended.

In the coding system, the number 9 indicates the information is not stated, meaning there should not be any information in the box in which the number is written.

However, the number 9 can be seen written in pencil next to the fields for “Usual Occupation,” “Kind of Business or Industry” and “Race of Father” on Obama’s document. Each of those fields are filled with information.

“This proves the document has been tampered with and information has been placed on it,” Zullo said.

Sheriff’s investigators tracked down the registrar who allegedly signed the White House’s birth document, U.K. Lee, who is now 95. She provided information that posed further inconsistencies with the story of Obama’s birth at the Kapiolani Maternity and Gynecological Hospital in 1961.

The investigators also analyzed the Hawaii Department of Health’s response to Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett’s request that Obama’s birth information be verified.

They interviewed in person the Hawaii assistant attorney general to verify that the document presented by the White House was the same document on file with the Department of Health.

Investigators said they were troubled to find key information missing on the verification document, including the president’s date of birth.

They said they were equally troubled that the deputy attorney general would not confirm on record that the White House document matched what was on file with the health department.

Obama Cites Campaign Donor as ‘Non-Partisan Economist’

Comments Off on Obama Cites Campaign Donor as ‘Non-Partisan Economist’

Oops, caught again! A non-partisan economist?

At a speech earlier today in Cincinnati, Ohio, President Obama cited economic analysis conducted by one of his campaign donors, Kimberly Clausing, and called her a “non-partisan economist.” Clausing, a college professor from Reed College, has donated to President Obama and several Democratic politicians and causes over the last dozen years.

The Obama campaign earlier today touted this same study by Clausing. “Economist Kimberly Clausing writes that, under current economic conditions, ‘those new, low-tax-country jobs could displace jobs at home,'” an unnamed campaign official told Politico.

As we detailed earlier, “Clausing, according to donor records, gave Obama for America $250 on May 18, 2012. Likewise, on September 14, 2011, Clausing gave $242 to Obama for America, records reveal.”

Obama shows he’s clueless about small business

Comments Off on Obama shows he’s clueless about small business

Remember this brillant statement? “If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.” …that’s like saying what came first the chicken or the egg?

President Obama has a message for all the small-business owners in America who also happen to employ more than half of all Americans: “If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”

Obama uttered that sentence while campaigning in Roanoke last Friday, to explain how government deserves a large share of the credit for businesses’ success because it provides basic services and infrastructure that businesses use.

“The Internet didn’t get invented on its own,” Obama continued. “Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet.” Moreover, Obama did not make this statement to argue that government should invest more in basic research and infrastructure. He was calling for a tax hike to fund more failing solar firms, bullet trains to nowhere and most of all the budget-devouring entitlement programs he lacks the courage to fix. He seems to think successful entrepreneurs should be grateful and eager to pay more.

Only someone who has never signed the front of a paycheck could make such an ignorant comment. Government research may have helped create the Internet, but entrepreneurs made it useful and profitable. And as with most, if not all of the basic infrastructure that modern governments provide, business entrepreneurs have paid for the Internet thousands of times over through the tax revenues they created through increased sales and employment over the years.

It isn’t easy to understand what it takes to create jobs while making money, but Obama has proven himself extraordinarily obtuse on the subject. In just his first three years in office, Obama has approved 106 new major federal regulations that cost the U.S. economy $46 billion annually, according to his own administration’s estimate. Under Obama, the per-employee cost of simply complying with federal regulations — before any other expenses or capital investments are accounted for SEmD has risen from $8,086 in 2008 to $10,585 in 2010, according to the federal Small Business Administration. That number will rise again substantially in 2014, when many firms with more than 50 employees are slapped with stiff fines under Obamacare’s “employer responsibility” requirement.
