Many of us can recall the tension building in the courtroom during the final push by Daniel Kaffee as he attempts to get Col. Nathan Jessep to admit giving an order to perform a ‘code red’ on PFC William Santiago in the film A Few Good Men. “I want the truth!” belts out Tom Cruise, playing the role of Kaffee. Jack Nicholson, who plays Jessep responds, “You can’t handle the truth!” This is much the way the press conference went on Tuesday at the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office.
More evidence was reported in addition to all of that presented before. Though the press conference lasted around an hour and fifteen minutes, it was the last fifteen minutes that really told the story about where any attempt to bring to justice the person responsible for the forged Obama birth certificate to justice will go.
Instead of asking questions about the investigation and about the evidence presented it was an attack on the messengers. There were questions about whether the investigation was political. There were questions about how much it cost the taxpayers of Maricopa County. There were questions about everything under the sun in regards to both Sheriff Joe Arpaio and lead investigator Mike Zullo. There was one question about the actual evidence.
It was frustrating to watch and must have been frustrating for those presenting the evidence. They were attacked as though they had done something wrong, when in reality they were merely doing their jobs.
They have said over and over that they offered to pay their own way and even had received donations that helped cover some expenses. when questioned on the “book” that is offered on Amazon, Zullo claimed that it was around $1500 and he gave it all to his church. Yet people still think this to be a political plot against Barack Obama.
Both men affirmed that their thought was to clear Obama in all of this. In fact, Zullo said that after looking at all of Jerome Corsi’s work beforehand, he dismissed it and wanted “harder evidence.” However, both men said they followed the evidence and this is where it has led. To add to that Arpaio even said he cannot prove Obama knows the birth certificate is a fake, but nevertheless Arpaio believes the document is a fake and wants to apprehend the person that forged the document.
But the media can’t handle the truth. They don’t want to get their hands dirty on this one, just as Zullo said that every person they ran into in Hawaii didn’t want to get their hands dirty by answering simple questions. Instead they hid behind legal technicalities.
At the close of the press conference, Arpaio was asked what he was going to do with all the information gathered in the investigation. His answer was simple. He wanted to pass it along to the Congress and have them look at it and do what needs to be done.
But the fact is that the Congress can’t handle the truth either. Just look at the way they have handled the debt crisis, the stimulus, and now the tax increases and a lack of cutting costs. They can’t handle the truth because they are busy looking at whether their team’s jersey will get back in power or lose power.
So many people claim that the birth certificate issue is a non-issue. Joe Arpaio and Mike Zullo destroyed that notion when they claimed, in regards to Hawaiian birth certificates, that it was a “national security issue.”
This is not a “national security issue” like releasing all the footage around the Pentagon on 9-11 is claimed to be a “national security issue.” It’s not like the entire assasination of JFK was a “national security issue.”
This is a real national security issue that could very well demonstrate that we have a sleeper in the White House which would bring our country to the brink of a Constitutional crisis that no one wants to deal with. It would have a major bearing on how Barack Obama would be dealt with. It would have implications on every law he has signed, including Obamacare. It would have an impact on the Supreme Court Justices he nominated. It would cause a cry of uproar from the populace and this is why it cannot be allowed to go anywhere.
America can’t handle the truth anymore. They know things are wrong, yes, even some Democrats know something is wrong, but they fail to wake up and see what is happening and take a stand lest they be called “conspiracy theorists” or worse. Frankly, the birth certificate issue has been made out to be a conspiracy and that may well be, but the evidence put forth is not conspiracy theory, it’s simply facts.
Since the media doesn’t have the stones to deal with the truth and I’ll assume the Congress doesn’t have that ability either, I am wondering, as Tad Cronn is, should the military face the truth? Should they exercise their duty in their sworn oath? and not only that but if Barack Obama is complicit in this forgery, and I would assume he is, and Congress is also complicit for failing to deal with it, then have they risen to the level of a domestic enemy?
It is frightening to think about, I admit. But what will it take for elected representatives to stop thinking about getting re-elected and start thinking about the Constitution and the people they serve? It will take them being able to handle the truth.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
