Today the long awaited press conference by Sheriff Joe Arpaio's office took place at 5:30pm EST. Its goal was to bring forth new evidence that provides indisputable evidence that the birth certificate of Barack Hussein Obama is in fact a forgery.
The Sheriff's Office spokesman, Lisa Adams, opened the conference and said that they hope to take no more than 60 minutes to complete. She also said that no questions would be answered in regards to anything unrelated to the press conference pertaining to Sheriff Joe Arpaio, such as the recent immigration ruling by the Supreme Court. She also scolded the media for their lack of reporting and their scoffing at the investigation. She then encouraged them to keep an open mind.
Sheriff Joe then took to the podium and took only a few moments to run down the history of the investigation and introduce Mike Zullo, the Cold Case Posse lead investigator.
Zullo presented more evidence that proves that the birth certificate presented to the people of America in 2011 is not an authentic document. Though the information in the prior press conference specifically dealt with the document itself and the many anomalies in it, in this conference Mr. Zullo provided evidence of a different nature.
The first bombshell he dropped was that he and his investigator located 95-year-old Ms. Verna K. L. Lee, who was the registrar that signed the birth certificates in Hawaii. She informed him of a coding system that would indicate that the birth certificate provided by the White House has been altered. This coding would have been done by hand and then rechecked by another. This would also have kept the document from being out of sequence by date or time.
Thus when compared to the now famous birth certificate of Gretchen and Susan Nordike, it clearly shows that someone has altered what was on the document that the White House presented. Mr. Zullo also pointed out that these would have been stamped in sequence of batches by whatever region they were in and since the Nordike Twins were born at Kapiolane and Barack Obama also claims that, then there should not be an out of sequence number.
One of the things that Ms. Lee informed reporter Jerome Corsi about during a phone conversation was the hand-written number 9 in the number 9 box where the race of the father is listed as African. While much of the focus has been on the term African being used, Ms. Lee informed Mr. Corsi that the 9 indicates that the applicant for the birth certificate did not provide any information to put there. If they had a number 1 would have been written in. Therefore, the box should have been left blank, not filled in with African.
Furthermore, Zullo confirmed the conversation between Jerome Corsi and Ms. Lee was recorded.
Investigators also were troubled to find key information missing from the verification document Hawaii provided to Arizona's secretary of state Ken Bennett in May.
When they spoke with Hawaii's deputy attorney general, Jill T. Nagamine, she confirmed that the state has a birth document on file, but refused to identify the document that the White House put out as the document that the state has.
What is most telling in the last part is the history of Hawaii law. No one had to witness a birth in order to obtain a birth certificate in Hawaii. As has been reported, many Japanese people who were not citizens obtained birth records for their children. All they had to be were residents, not citizens, to obtain the birth records for their children.
From 1955-1982 this was the case because birth registry could be obtained by an adult simply coming in and filling out the paperwork. They provided unsworn testimony and there was no investigation to see if the testimony was truthful.
“It appears that in the case of Hawaii law, any person can obtain a birth certificate if any adult or their parents can prove that they resided in Hawaii for one year and paid taxes,” he said. “There is no requirement to show that the child itself was actually born in Hawaii or on U.S. soil.”
It was at this point that Mike Zullo stated that this is a "national security issue."
The national security concerns raised by the investigation are based on Hawaii Revised Statute 338.17.8. which states:
338-17.8 Certificates for children born out of state.
Upon application of an adult or the legal parents of a minor child, the director of health shall issue a birth certificate for such adult or minor, provided that proof has been submitted to the director of health that the legal parents of such individual while living without the Territory or State of Hawaii had declared the Territory or State of Hawaii as their legal residence for at least one year immediately preceding the birth or adoption of such child.
Because of this information all Hawaiian birth certificates are suspect. Zullo also believes this is in conflict with the Supreme Court's ruling on SB1070, as does Arpaio, since state and federal law cannot be in conflict, though he tried to keep the focus on the document.
At the end of the press conference both Zullo and Arpaio kept trying to point reporters to the evidence and said it was not a political investigation. Both men have said they would have liked to clear the president in this matter, but the evidence lead them somewhere else. They also stated that the majority of their work has been taken care of by donations and by their own willingness to do the job.
It seems the reporters who attended were more interested in smearing Arpaio and Zullo than actually asking pertinent questions about the evidence presented to them, for which they were scolded.
Arpaio stands ready to provide the Congress with all the necessary documentation for a more thorough investigation and he called upon them to do just that. Both Arpaio and Zullo also said that they are not stating that Barack Obama knows of the forgery. They are simply stating that the document is a forgery.
