Our long national nightmare is over as Sheriff Arpaio "proves" that President Obama's birth certificate is a fake.

Courtesy of AZ Central: 

At 4 p.m. sharp, Arpaio and a member of his Sheriff's Office's Cold Case Posse had a message for the 40-odd journalists in attendance: You were wrong. 

Arpaio and his aides announced that a five-year probe had proved that Obama’s birth certificate from Hawaii in 1961 was, in fact, a forgery. 

The news conference opened with a spokesman criticizing members of the media for critical coverage of the investigation. He then turned the stage over to Arpaio, who said he hoped to enlighten the public with information on this “fake, fake birth certificate.” 

Arpaio insisted that the investigation was not linked to his legal conflicts with the Obama administration; it was about the allegation of a forged document.

“Think of it. We were trying to clear the president,” he said, adding, “It didn’t work out that way.”

Oh the renowned racist who has been at war with the Obama Administration for years was only trying to "clear" the President.  And it has nothing to do with his legal battles.

Okay sure.

It should be noted that this makes the third press conference that Arpaio has called during whihc he claimed to have proof that President Obama was not born in this country.

Those were back in 2012, and Snopes made short work of those allegations.

I listened to the actual presentation, and have to admit I have virtually NO idea what in the hell they are talking about. Though that is certainly not stopping the conservative news sites from rubbing themselves raw over this "revelation."

However I will say this.

The Right Wing has been trying to delegitimize Obama's presidency since before he even took office, and they have attacked him and his administration from virtually every angle imaginable. So does ANYBODY really think that some podunk sheriff in some dusty corner of Arizona really found something that even the Republican party and Donald Trump with all of his billions could not find?

    "So does ANYBODY really think that some podunk sheriff in some dusty corner of Arizona really found something that even the Republicans party and Donald Trump with all of his billions could not find?"

    Naturally, once this too is torn to shreds, it won't matter. There will ALWAYS be those who refuse to acknowledge him in ANY way, let alone as qualified to be president. And they will use this as ammunition.

    Personally, I believe that even if JC himself came down and TOLD these fools President Obama WAS born here they wouldn't believe it.

    They don't like facts, remember?

      Speaking of stupidity in comments, yours takes first prize. How far did you get in school anyway? If you will look again, the first paragraph I posted was a direct quote from Gryphen's posting. It was not I who said it. I was merely copying it to allow people to recognize from where I got the paragraph. I know you appear to understand the use of quotes since you SEEM to think I made the original with your copying it as well.

      I would suggest you begin to learn reading and reading comprehension before tackling comments beyond your obvious intelligence level.

      Perhaps you may come to realize that attacking someone - for something they didn't do - is not a good idea unless you are certain of the ground upon which you stand.

    Targeted harassment, personal intimidation, media censoring their own -- these are weapons of silence and control in the Age of Trump. Right now, these tactics are being aimed at electors and journalists to keep them from asking questions.

    ...“In Russia, the Kremlin rarely has to make the call to media organizations. The media bosses anticipate and do the censoring themselves.”

    The media bosses anticipate the censoring and do it themselves so the Kremlin doesn’t have to. This can’t be emphasized enough, and the people must not stand for it.

    Not only will media bosses suddenly decided that rudeness toward the President won’t be tolerated, but if that fails deploying supporters to harass and intimidate journalists and their children, electors and their families, will serve to silence those bold enough to speak out.

    http://www.politicususa.com/2016/12/16/weaponized-personal-harassment-silence-intimidate-electors-journalists.html

    Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway suggested during an interview on Fox News that if President Obama loved his country more, he wouldn't be investigating potential Russian election interference.

    ...Conway made an extremely dubious connection between patriotism and those who want an investigation into the potential role that Russian interference played in the presidential election. Suggesting that Donald Trump knew about the hacks before election day is not the same as to claim that Trump collaborated with the Russians to win the election.

    An Open Letter To ‘Mr.’ Trump: WTF Is Wrong With You!?

    Dear Mr. Trump:

    I refer to you as “Mr” because I do not recognize you as my president. Or anyone’s president for that matter. You lost the popular vote by almost 3 million votes, more than any president in United States history. And with the likely help of Russian hacks, oppressive voter ID laws, other acts of voter suppression and election fraud, and an embarrassingly neutered media, you squeaked out a measly 306 electoral votes, placing you in the bottom fifth of all presidents ever.

    But in true Trumpian fashion, you’ve boasted of a “massive landslide victory.” Sorry, pal. The only “landslide” was Hillary Clinton’s, as she received more votes than any president in history except for Barack Obama in 2008. One thing’s for sure though: you were right about the election being “rigged.” For you.

    Now that we’ve gotten the niceties out of the way, let me ask the most obvious question: what the fuck is wrong with you!? Seriously, do you not give a shit about your legacy, if not for yourself, at least for your kids, grandkids and future generations of Trumps? If your goal is to beat James Buchanan as the worst president in history, well then Mazel Tov, as you’re halfway there and you’ve still got five weeks till inauguration day!

    Let’s start with your cabinet picks. You were supposed to drain the swamp, not restock it with self-serving corporate billionaires and other uber-rich insiders and cronies. You’ve appointed a banana-republic-worthy gaggle of unqualified, inexperienced, intellectually un-curious sexists/misogynists, racists, stabbers (ok, just one knifer, Ben Carson), fake-news-spreaders and Russian sympathizers. And your alt-right white nationalist advisor Steve Bannon sits atop this basket of deplorables. This is your idea of populism!?

    And what’s with all the generals? You know, those guys you claim to be smarter than. Are you planning some kind of military coup? Besides, hanging around with generals doesn’t make you any tougher. You could hang around real-men in uniform all you want and you’re still a draft-dodging coward.

    Now about that Russian hack.

    The U.S. agency charged with ensuring that voting machines meet security standards was itself penetrated by a hacker after the November elections, according to a security firm.

      "The security firm, Recorded Future, was monitoring underground electronic markets where hackers buy and sell wares and discovered someone offering log-on credentials for access to computers at the U.S. Election Assistance Commission, company executives said.

      Posing as a potential buyer, the researchers engaged in a conversation with the hacker, said Levi Gundert, vice president of intelligence at the company, and Andrei Barysevich, director of advanced collection.

      Eventually they discovered that the Russian-speaking hacker had obtained the credentials of more than 100 people at the election commission after exploiting a common database vulnerability, the researchers said.

      The hacker was trying to sell information about the vulnerability to a Middle Eastern government for several thousand dollars, but the researchers alerted law enforcement and said Thursday that the hole had been patched.

      The Election Assistance Commission said in a statement late Thursday that it had become aware of a "potential intrusion" and was "working with federal law enforcement agencies to investigate the potential breach and its effects."

      "The FBI is currently conducting an ongoing criminal investigation," the statement added."
