In a not unexpected move, the Obama Dept of Injustice is preparing to sue Arizona county sheriff Joe Arpaio and his department for violating civil rights laws. This comes in the wake of two Arpaio new conferences, March 1 and March 31, disclosing to the public his posse’s findings regarding Obama’s long form birth certificate and his selective service registration card.
The sheriff’s high-profile crackdown on illegal immigrants has helped thrust the issue onto the national political stage with some states passing tough new laws aimed at pushing out those in the country illegally.
The administration’s Justice Department and the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office have been in settlement talks for months over allegations that officers regularly made unlawful stops and arrests of Latinos, used excessive force against them and failed to adequately protect the Hispanic community.
Those negotiations have broken down because of a fight over the Justice Department’s demand that an independent monitor be appointed by a federal court to oversee compliance with the settlement, which has now reached 128 pages in draft form, according to the Obama administration.
As you can imagine, Arpaio has objected to being assigned a “monitor” to hamstring his law enforcement efforts.
The Justice Department in a December report outlined numerous alleged civil rights violations, including that Latino drivers were four to nine times more likely to be stopped than non-Latinos by Arpaio’s force.
The sheriff has steadfastly denied any wrongdoing and lashed out at the Obama administration for targeting his department and failing to deal with the problem of illegal immigration with some 11.5 million believed to be in the United States.
In a strongly worded statement on Tuesday, Arpaio said the appointment of a monitor would force him to abdicate responsibility for his police force, including decisions about policies, operations, jail programs and enforcement.
“To the Obama administration, who is attempting to strong arm me into submission only for its political gain, I say: This will not happen, not on my watch!” Arpaio said in the statement.
Arpaio may be on to something, there. As J Christian Adams has written, “if the public had any idea just how politicized the (Civil Rights) Division has become under this administration, outrage would follow.”
For those who have followed this series, you know that much of the culpability rests with former Acting Assistant Attorney Loretta King. As I pointed out in a piece last week, King rewrote the hiring guidelines back in 2009, resulting in hiring committee members being forced to toss any resume that did not describe a radical background. She didn’t believe that lawyers who represented defendants in civil rights cases also have expertise in the law. She didn’t believe anyone who didn’t work for a left-wing group deserved to work in the Civil Rights Division.
Apologists of this disgrace say DOJ only wanted people “with experience in civil rights law.” That’s called a pretext. Plenty of lawyers have experience defending civil rights cases. Plenty of lawyers who didn’t work for left-wing groups have the willingness and dedication to enforce the law fairly.
The truth is that most of the “experience” this series has described is meaningless for a DOJ lawyer, except to do one thing: demonstrate their political and ideological allegiance with the Obama administration. Kavitha Sreeharsha’s work promoting abortion won’t have anything to do with litigating cases at DOJ. Daria Neal’s nutty environmental advocacy won’t help her win a case at DOJ. But it will give Eric Holder and DOJ political appointees comfort they are hiring fellow travelers who will try to move the law, who will work to aid the political aims of the administration.
Last month, Arpaio held two news conferences in which he tried to publicize his investigation’s findings regarding the legitimacy of the President’s long form birth certificate which was finally posted on the White House website, last April. Arpaio’s team of investigators were hoping to put an end to the nagging controversy by finding everything on the up and up, but instead, they came to the opposite conclusion. The thing that was posted online is as fake as a three dollar bill, a “computer-generated forgery”, Arpaio’s cold case posse declared. Arpaio’s invesigation also found that “the INS records for foreign flights arriving in Hawaii during the week of Obama’s birth were missing, not only on the microfilm reels examined, but also in the primary database itself.” Climate change skeptic and fraud detector, Christopher Monckton met with Arpaio, recently, and concurred that that the BC is a forgery.
Arpaio has now expanded his probe to include the allegations of Hillary Clinton supporters:
Sheriff Joe Arpaio has decided to expand the scope of his law enforcement investigation into President Obama’s eligibility to include evidence and affidavits documenting alleged criminal activity by the Obama campaign in the 2008 Democratic Party primary race.
Hollywood film producer Bettina Viviano and Hollywood-based digital photographer Michele Thomas have given Arpaio’s investigators the names of dozens of Hillary Clinton supporters willing to come forward with evidence and affidavits. Among their claims is that the Clintons were the first to charge Obama is not a natural born citizen as required by Article 2, Section 1 of the Constitution and that his birth certificate is a forgery.
Moreover, the Hillary supporters identified by Viviano and Thomas have argued that the pattern of questionable and possibly illegal activity suggests that the alleged act of producing forged birth certificate documentation for Obama may have been merely more of the same.
Needless to say, the media – right, left and “mainstream”, have been less than eager to share any of this news with the public.
The media blackout was tackled by Diana West, last month in her post, “Silence of the Lapdogs“:
Warning: This column contains news of evidence of possible forgery and fraud in the long-form birth certificate of the president of the United States and – bonus – his Selective Service registration card.
I figure the warning is necessary to prevent Americans, particularly Americans who work in news media and politics, from hurting themselves on any hard, sharp facts that might poke through my discussion of what is surely the biggest scandal to emerge around the seemingly dodgy docs Barack Obama is using to verify his identity.
I refer to the logic- and history-defying news and political blackout of the March 1 press conference called in Maricopa County, Ariz., by Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse.
I ask you: Have you read in your local paper about the technical evidence that led the posse’s three retired criminal investigators and two attorneys to conclude that the birth certificate image White House officials uploaded at the White House website on April 27, 2011, did not originate in a paper format, but rather was created (forged) as an electronic file on a computer?
She referred to a leading leading conservative editor, who complained that “It’s an issue on which people are being marginalized very easily and very quickly at this point.”
Marginalized by whom? The Soros-funded attack machine? The liberal-dominated “mainstream media”? Fox News-dominated conservative media? The Obama White House?
Clearly, something has us all on lockdown. That’s much, much scarier than even the amazing possibility that some con artist might be pulling off the biggest scam in history.
Now the con artist is doing everything in his power to shut down the one Sheriff in the country who’s willing to put it all on the line by exposing the scam.
We facilitate their intimidation tactics by our silence.
Arpaio has more backbone than anyone I’ve ever seen – this simply isn’t common among elected officials. But there’s no way he’s gonna let Obama’s DOJ bully him around, especially when it is only about politics. He says if they want to take him to court, he’s more than willing to call their bluff and make them substantiate their allegations, something he says they’ve refused to do thus far and something he doesn’t think they want to do in court.
On Saturday, March 31, 2012, a press conference was held by a commissioned law enforcement body to present additional findings from their investigation into the bona fides and background of a man currently occupying the highest elected position in America. The investigation not only includes the forensic irregularities of the birth documentation submitted by Barack Hussein Obama, but into two additional areas. The official law enforcement investigation is also encompassing problems confirmed to exist with the authenticity of his selective service registration, a matter we’ve previously reported. Additionally and perhaps more explosive, investigation has broadened into the actions of Hillary Clinton and her closest political operatives during the latter part of the 2008 presidential campaign.
Most people following this issue are aware of the irregularities surrounding Obama’s selective service registration. Yet few appear to be aware that detectives from the Arizona investigative team have been methodically securing affidavits documenting alleged criminal activity by the Obama campaign during the 2008 Democratic Party primary.
“Something” happened during the latter portion of the campaign that involved Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama. Recall that Obama and Clinton ditched the press and their respective staff members to meet in secret during the late night hours of Thursday, June 5, 2008, at the home of Senator Dianne Feinstein. The meeting lasted about an hour, and what was discussed was never publicly disclosed.
