With any luck, President Donald Trump and a Republican Congress will erase the stain of Barack Obama’s legacy from our federal politics. That’s the minimum we should expect after the people of the United States sent Washington one of the clearest messages in modern history. As Ted Cruz said, conservatives will be coming to D.C. with “pitchforks and torches” if the GOP can’t get it right this time.
But hey, maybe we’ll get some dessert to go along with this hearty meat-and-potatoes meal! Maybe we won’t just wash away Obama’s legacy; maybe we’ll wash away his entire presidency.
On Thursday, outgoing Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Arizona announced that he had found conclusive evidence indicating that Obama’s publicly-released birth certificate is a fraud. Arpaio, the only police officer in the country to investigate the validity of the document, said it was up to U.S. lawmakers to look into the matter from here.
“Five years ago I said one thing, show us the microfiche, the birth certificate and we’ll all go home,” Arpaio said.
Unfortunately, he said, he wasn’t able to drop it when Obama released the birth certificate in 2011. Not because he was determined to prove that the president was born outside the United States, but because there were significant reasons to believe that the document was forged.
“Maybe some members of Congress will hold some hearings, open to the public regarding this matter,” Arpaio speculated. “If they can hold hearings on underinflated footballs, why can’t you hold one on this? Look at our evidence, just look at it.”
World Net Daily spoke to Arpaio’s lead investigator this weekend and found that he, too, wants to put the evidence before a congressional panel:
Mike Zullo, Arpaio’s lead investigator since 2011 on the birth certificate issue, told WND he wants to get the evidence to members of Congress for evaluation. It could support a Presidential Transparency Act, which would give secretaries of state across the nation the authority to investigate candidates with suspect qualifications.
“This is what we have learned. Every secretary of state is powerless to investigate a candidate,” he told WND. “They have to take everything on face value.”
According to Arpaio, there are “nine points of forgery” showing that Obama’s birth certificate was created by modifying the birth certificate of a Hawaiian named Johann Ah’nee.
“It is the opinion of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office that the birth certificate on your right, belonging to Johanna Ah’nee, was in fact used as a source document in the digital creation of Barack Obama’s long form birth certificate,” the sheriff said at the press conference.
None of this will make the last eight years disappear, but it would nonetheless be a bombshell of historic proportions, validating the views of many who have been mocked and lambasted for years.
Including, of course, the 45th President of the United States.
