Arpaio: GOP candidates 'hiding' from eligibility

'I've talked to every one of them; I don't see anybody talking about this'

Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio told a radio host today he’s met with Republicans – including every one of the GOP presidential candidates – and has come to the conclusion they’re as guilty as Democrats of “hiding” questions about Barack Obama’s eligibility to be president.

As WND reported, Arpaio and his Cold Case Posse conducted an extensive examination of documents released by the White House last April purported to be Obama’s original, long-form birth certificate and Selective Service registration card, only to conclude there is probable cause the documents are actually forgeries.

Yet despite his findings, Arpaio told “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio” on New York’s WABC Radio that media and politicians alike are afraid to touch the issue.

“Why didn’t someone investigate this? I mean, where is everybody?” Arpaio asked Klein. “How come the federal agencies aren’t investigating? We’re dealing with federal issues here. So everybody’s hiding, and they’re still hiding.”

Join the billboard campaign that seeks the answer to “Where’s the Real Birth Certificate?”

Klein told the sheriff he had hired his own forensic experts to analyze Obama’s purported birth certificate, but Arpaio insisted his posse’s examination went even further.

“This takes it to a different level, because we are a law enforcement agency,” said Arpaio, “it gives it a little different type of credibility.”

The sheriff also preempted charges of politics affecting his investigation, explaining he had told lead investigator Mike Zullo to debunk the “birther” claims about Obama’s documents.

“My instructions were this: ‘I want you to clear the president. I want to get to the bottom of this and get it off the table forever,’” Arpaio told Klein. “Didn’t happen that way.”

Instead, Zullo and the Cold Case Posse only confirmed lingering questions about Obama’s documents.

Klein asked Arpaio if he’d heard from Republicans since the announcement of the investigation’s findings.

“I haven’t heard from any,” Arpaio said, “especially the congressional delegation from Arizona.”

But that doesn’t mean he hasn’t tried to get Republicans to recognize the issue.

“I’ve had presidential candidates visit me in my office. I’ve talked to every one of them,” Arpaio said. “I don’t see anybody talking about this. I don’t see any senators talking about it. … How come everybody’s hiding this?”

Will Obama condemn this violence?

Muslims launch grenade attack on Christian worshipers

A band of Muslims launched a grenade attack against a crowd of 150 Christians attending an open-air meeting near the Kenyan town of Mtwapa, killing two and wounding more than 30, authorities report.

Human-rights groups say that the Muslim attackers were hyped into action by a militant Muslim preacher holding an alternate rally only 900 feet from the Christian gathering.

Further reports say that the Muslim preachers were slandering Christianity and that members of the Christian group could hear the Muslim speakers.

International Christian Concern says the grenade assault on the Christians happened at the same time as a bomb attack at a bar in the nearby city of Mombasa.

ICC’s Africa Regional Manager Jonathan Racho said the human rights group is concerned about the increase in anti-Christian violence in Kenya.

“We are deeply concerned about the bomb attack targeting innocent Christians. We urge Kenya to protect its citizens from the growing attacks of the radical Islamists,” Racho said.

Racho noted that Kenya’s increase in anti-Christian violence comes as Nigeria’s Boko Haram has declared war on Christians and as Sudan appears to be facing a new civil war.

“Islamic radicals are carrying out attacks against Christians in Africa. The situation is getting worse in places like Nigeria and Kenya. Security forces must step up their efforts to stem the violence by the radicals,” Racho said.

WND reported in December that a Christian man in Kenya was beaten by a Somali mob that crossed the border for the attack.

International Christian Concern’s Aidan Clay met with the victim of the attack.

“When I saw him a month after the incident, he was still badly bruised, could hardly see out of his right eye which was black, and was missing teeth,” Clay said.

Clay said the attacks are becoming more frequent and more intense.

“Recently, there has been a slight surge of violence targeting Christians inside Kenya, provoked mainly by Somali Muslims, some of whom are likely from the militant group al-Shabaab,” Clay said.

A Pentecostal church in the eastern Kenyan town of Garissa was the target of another Muslim grenade attack in November. A group of Muslim men hurled a grenade into the church compound, killing two church members and injuring scores of others.

WND reported in 2008 a fire bombing that injured more than 50 in Eldoret, Kenya. At that time, the attack was identified as part of violence that followed incumbent Mwai Kbaki’s defeat of President Obama’s Muslim Kenyan friend, Raila Odinga, in Kenya’s presidential election.

WND reported Obama traveled to Kenya to campaign for Odinga.

Obama appeared with Odinga at campaign stops and gave speeches accusing the sitting Kenyan president of being corrupt and oppressive. But Odinga lost, despite attracting Muslim votes through a secret Memorandum of Understanding with Muslim Sheik Abdullah Abdi, the chief of the National Muslim Leaders Forum of Kenya.

In the memo, Odinga promised to rewrite the Kenyan constitution to install Shariah as law in “Muslim declared regions,” elevate Islam as “the only true religion” and give Islamic leaders “oversight” over other religions, establish Shariah courts and ban Christian proselytism

After his loss, Odinga accused Kbaki of rigging the vote and allegedly incited his supporters to riot. Over the next month, some 1,500 Kenyans were killed and more than 500,000 displaced – with most of the violence led by Muslims, who set churches ablaze and hacked Christians to death with machetes.

Obama now haunted by his ex-political mentor

Activist claims 'thug tactics' used to launch career also employed in 2008
by Jerome R. Corsi
Monday, April 09, 2012

Alice Palmer, the avowed communist who helped launch Barack Obama’s career, continues to haunt Obama even today.

In 2008, Palmer showed up at the Democratic National Convention in Denver as a Hillary Clinton supporter, still resentful toward Obama for knocking her and three other candidates off the ballot for an Illinois state Senate seat some 13 years earlier by challenging voter signatures.

“The Democratic primary, what I witnessed, was one of the most appalling, disgusting things I’ve ever seen in my entire life,” Hollywood-based digital photographer Michele Thomas told WND in a joint interview with Hollywood film producer Bettina Viviano.

Thomas began as a volunteer for the 2008 Clinton campaign then launched a petition drive when she learned the Democratic National Committee was not going to allow delegates to cast their votes for Clinton at the convention.

“I just felt like the entire process was being eviscerated and rules were being changed all along to ensure that no matter what, Barack Obama was the nominee,” Thomas said.

“And I felt compelled to take a stand to have the process in which we decide who our candidates are that we vote for be upheld,” she said. “And that the peoples’ votes are held up from the ballot box to the convention where the delegates bring those votes forward.”

Thomas said she received death threats as she gathered the 300 signed and notarized petitions required by Democratic National Convention rules to prompt a count of votes for Hillary Clinton on the first ballot.

Knowing how Obama had defeated Palmer in his first election campaign in 1996, Thomas required the delegates who signed the petition to notarize their signatures on two copies. One copy was sent to a Post Office box and the other brought to the convention in Denver.

Thomas said she did it “so there was no way the DNC or the Obama campaign, his lawyers, could knock my signatures off this petition.”

Thomas took three months off work to conduct the petition drive, foregoing considerable income.

She explained why she did it and why she is speaking out about it now.

“I’m a little scared right now, there’s no doubt about it,” she admitted, “but at some point in your life, if you are fortunate enough, you are faced with the decision of doing something bigger than yourself.”

As WND reported, the charges of Thomas, Viviano and others connected to the 2008 campaign are now being investigated by Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse, which is probing Obama’s eligibility for Arizona’s 2012 ballot.

Help Sheriff Joe blow the lid off Obama’s fraud. Join the Cold Case Posse right now!

‘Bare-knuckle’ politics

In 1995, Obama saw his opening to run for elected office when Palmer decided to give up her state Senate seat and run for Congress in a special election.

In 1986, as editor of the Black Press Review, Palmer was the only African-American to cover the 27th Congress of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union in Moscow.

She went out of her way to make Obama her handpicked successor.

To get Obama’s state Senate race off to a good start, Palmer arranged a function to be held for a few influential liberals in the district at the Hyde Park home of Weather Underground founders Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn.

It’s not likely Palmer would have selected Obama to be her successor in the Illinois Legislature or have introduced him to the Hyde Park political community at the Ayers-Dohrn home unless she saw an affinity between Ayers and Dorhn’s radical SDS Weather Underground history and her own history of openly professed communism and Obama.

After Palmer stepped aside for Obama to take her seat, she suffered an unexpected electoral defeat in the November 1995 Democratic Party primary. She came in a distant third, behind Jesse Jackson and Emil Jones Jr., a power-wielder who would become Obama’s mentor after Obama was elected to fill Palmer’s seat.

After losing the special congressional election, Palmer reversed her decision and decided she wanted her Illinois Senate seat back.

Palmer supporters asked Obama to step aside, but he refused and decided to challenge Palmer’s eligibility for the ballot using what the Chicago Tribune described as the “bare-knuckle arts of Chicago electoral politics.”

Obama hired a fellow Harvard Law School alumnus to challenge the legitimacy of the signatures Palmer received on petitions to qualify for the ballot.

Once he set on the strategy, Obama kept challenging petitions, until he succeeded in getting all four of his Democratic primary rivals forced off the ballot, enabling him to run unchallenged.

Viviano described Obama’s strategy in defeating Palmer in 1995 as a betrayal.

“Alice Palmer was his mentor who had asked Bill Ayers to throw that coming-out party for Obama,” she explained.

Thomas said she met Palmer in person at the 2008 convention in Denver.

“I actually had my petitions in my backpack,” Thomas remembered. “I walked right up to her and I said, ‘Alice Palmer, you have no idea how you have affected my life and what I’ve just done.’”

Thomas explained to Palmer how she designed her petition to make sure Obama could not get lawyers to disqualify her signatures.

“I had every single one of these petitions notarized because I know what happened to you,” Thomas told Palmer upon meeting her in Denver. “I have them in my backpack right now. Do you want to see them?”

Palmer said yes.

“She started going through them, and she got tears in her eyes when she saw that they were notarized,” Thomas recalled. “She said, ‘Oh my God, This is what I should have done, this is what I should have done.”

Thomas told Palmer that the only reason she got her signatures individually notarized was to prevent the Democratic National Committee or the Obama campaign from throwing out her signatures to disqualify the petition.

“This was all because of what [Obama] did to all of his challengers,” Viviano stressed. “It just was outrageous to disqualify these people that way. This is how moral and ethical our so-called president is. His own mentor, who went out of her way to support him in his career – he turned around with a knife and put it in her back and had her challenged off the ballot in a way that was so amoral and unethical, and she became a Hillary supporter.”

Thomas remembered that Palmer pulled her aside at the Denver presidential nominating convention and told Thomas that she wanted to tell her a story.

Palmer explained to Thomas that after Obama’s lawyers disqualified her signatures in 1996, she spent the next few months walking door-to-door making sure her signatures were valid.

“She said every single one of them was correct, and they should have not been knocked off,” Thomas said.

Thomas recalled that Palmer wanted to have dinner with her that night. But the person who introduced her to Palmer later called and said that the dinner was off because Palmer had been threatened.

Viviano shared Thomas’ outrage.

“America doesn’t do scared like that,” she insisted. “This is a First Amendment country, freedom of speech and now, all of a sudden, there are people cowering in the corner that are afraid to tell the truth about things.

“This is like living under Chavez or Castro,” she said. “It’s ridiculous.”

Of course not, but CNN is leading the charge to flash-start a race war, probably ordered by Muslim Soetoro's owners. Susan Candiotti, reporting live... LOL!

Muslim Soetoro will do anything to ruin Christians, ruin Whites, destroy freedom, and advance Islam and Marxist. He is a radical, very evil tyrant. The fact that he is masquerading as POTUS is simply beyond comprehension to this American. Each morning when I wake up and realize the state we're in, it's like a fresh new shock. What sane person could ever become accustomed to accepting Soetoro as POTUS? This is pure madness we're living through. Unimaginable madness. -ng-

Well, no, but what are you?

Ben - what is the result of levying more financial requirements on a corporation?

You have never answered my question, which is the heart of the argument.

Redeem yourself! Answer the real question.
