Arizona flooded by emails on Obama eligibility

'It should be an honor to show their proof'

As Arizona officials contemplate whether or not Barack Obama’s name will appear on a ballot this year, the state is being flooded with emails from concerned citizens urging the attorney general to make sure the president is constitutionally eligible to hold the office.

Secretary of State Ken Bennett is giving news media a glimpse of the more than 1,200 messages sent to his office since Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio announced March 1 probable cause exists that Obama’s birth certificate released in 2011 is a forgery.

According to KTAR Radio in Phoenix, Brian Reilly of the Surprise Tea Party said he would support Bennett for governor if Bennett refused to put Obama’s name on the Arizona ballot unless the president or the Democratic National Committee could give “information that is satisfactory” to the attorney general and Sheriff Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse that Obama’s Hawaii birth certificate is authentic.

The station says legislative district 4 director Jim Keller sent Bennett a message suggesting he precludeObama’s name from the ballot, saying Arpaio’s probe proves Obama does not meet the qualifications to be president.

KTAR withheld the names of private citizens who sent emails, but a sampling of their messages to Bennett include:
  • “The question of Obama’s legitimacy to be president is too compelling. He waited too long to produce a birth certificate which adds to the questionable document. Please remove him from the presidential ballot.”
  • “I am a ‘natural born citizen.’ I am concerned about all elected officials being honest about their U.S. citizenship. Investigating any that are questionable should not be considered an invasion to their rights, but should be an honor to show their proof of citizenship.”
  • “If you as our secretary of state do not have the courage to write a simple letter to the DNC … will you have the courage to govern Arizona if you one day become our governor? Over 3,000 people may have second thoughts about you in your bid for re-election or a bid for the governor’s office over a simple letter.”
  • “It is with great surprise and disappointment that you are reluctant to follow through with the substantial evidence showing that the president of our country is not qualified to hold this position due to his fraudulent documentation. Not only is one of his documents fraudulently manufactured, but TWO OF HIS DOCUMENTS ARE fraudulently presented! WE HAVE TO STAND UP FOR THE CONSTITUTION AND FOLLOW THE LAWS OF THIS COUNTRY! If we do not uphold our Constitution, there will be nothing holding our country together. Elected officials are elected to uphold the Constitution and the laws of our country, both Federally and locally. We realize there are many issues taking elected officials attention at this time, but none is as important as upholding our Constitution.”
Bennett has sent out an e-mail response, indicating it was “imperative that we follow the rule of law as well.”

He wrote:
With all due respect, the MCSO investigation has not proven anything other than raised probable cause that the birth certificate posted on the Whitehouse website “may be” a forgery.
The next lawful step would be for the Sheriff’s office to turn their findings over to the County Attorney for prosecution. Evidence would be brought on both sides and a judge should issue a decision. Whether or not that happens, if Hawaii can’t or won’t provide verification of the President’s birth certificate, I will not put his name on the ballot.
I can tell from the tone and language of your letters that the only acceptable outcome for you is that his name not be on the ballot, period. That may be what happens, but under my watch, it won’t happen based on opinions, petitions, probability or pledges to support or oppose me in the 2014 Governor’s race. My oath of office is to uphold the Constitution and laws of our State and country, and I’m going to do that by following the law. I look forward to continuing to work this issue under those parameters. Otherwise, I will respectfully agree to disagree.
Successful Launch Kicks off SpaceX's Historic Mission
Space Exploration Technologies Corp.


Hawthorne, CA – Today, Space Exploration Technologies (SpaceX) successfully launched its Falcon 9 rocket carrying a Dragon spacecraft to orbit in an exciting start to the mission that will make SpaceX the first commercial company in history to attempt to send a spacecraft to the International Space Station — something only a handful of governments have ever accomplished.

At 3:44 a.m. Eastern, the Falcon 9 carrying Dragon launched from SpaceX’s launch pad at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. Now Dragon heads toward the International Space Station. On that journey it will be subjected to a series of tests to determine if the vehicle is ready to berth with the station.

Broadcast quality videos, including video inside of the SpaceX factory, may be downloaded at vimeo.com/spacexlaunch and high-resolution photos are posted at spacexlaunch.zenfolio.com.

At a press conference held after the launch, SpaceX CEO and Chief Designer Elon Musk began, “I would like to start off by saying what a tremendous honor it has been to work with NASA. And to acknowledge the fact that we could not have started SpaceX, nor could we have reached this point without the help of NASA… It’s really been an honor to work with such great people.”

The vehicle’s first stage performed nominally before separating from the second stage. The second stage successfully delivered the Dragon spacecraft into its intended orbit. This marks the third consecutive successful Falcon 9 launch and the fifth straight launch success for SpaceX.

“We obviously have to go through a number of steps to berth with the Space Station, but everything is looking really good and I think I would count today as a success no matter what happens with the rest of the mission,” Musk said.

He continued by expressing his gratitude to the more than 1,800 SpaceX employees. “People have really given it their all.” Describing the scene inside of SpaceX headquarters in Hawthorne, California, he said, “We had most of the company gathered around SpaceX Mission Control. They are seeing the fruits of their labor and wondering if it is going to work. There is so much hope riding on that rocket. When it worked, and Dragon worked, and the solar arrays deployed, people saw their handiwork in space operating as it should.

There was tremendous elation. For us it is like winning the Super Bowl.”

Explaining the significance of the day, Musk stated, “This mission heralds the dawn of a new era of space exploration, one in which there is a significant commercial space element. It is like the advent of the Internet in the mid-1990s when commercial companies entered what was originally a government endeavor. That move dramatically accelerated the pace of advancement and made the Internet accessible to the mass market. I think we’re at a similar inflection point for space. I hope and I believe that this mission will be historic in marking that turning point towards a rapid advancement in space transportation technology.”

This is SpaceX’s second demonstration flight under a 2006 Commercial Orbital Transportation Services (COTS) agreement with NASA to develop the capability to carry cargo to and from the International Space Station. Demonstration launches are conducted to determine potential issues so that they might be addressed; by their very nature, they carry a significant risk. If any aspect of the mission is not successful, SpaceX will learn from the experience and try again.

Ten, nine, eight...Obama’s countdown to a race war begins
By: Diane Sori

Ten, nine, eight...the Obama hoped for race war is in full countdown mode.  
  
It’s still in the news everyday...the Treyvon Martin case, the case that keeps on giving is now proving to be NOT what it first appeared to be.

While more and more evidence is being publicly released in this case, it’s becoming harder and harder to ignore the fact that George Zimmerman’s claim of self-defensive is indeed the truth.  Recently released medical reports, and the all-telling photographs, acknowledge the fact that George Zimmerman did indeed have serious injuries to his face and head.  Add into the mix the police reports showing statements from two witnesses who claim it was Zimmerman on the ground, being punched by someone in a hoodie, not the other way around, and you have one definitive case for self-defense.  

Seven, six, five...and now with the autopsy results revealing that Trayvon Martin (who had recently been suspended from school for possessing marijuana) suffered injuries to his knuckles concurrent with the injuries Zimmerman suffered, and that THC (the drug component of marijuana) was in his blood, and you have an entirely different picture of the supposed angelic teenager.

And none of these facts have anything to do with the race of either man.  Facts are facts and must be accepted as such.

Four, three....as the road to trial is being laid, one simple fact remains above all else...George Zimmerman will NEVER be afforded a fair trial.  The media has already tried and convicted him, and made it so that Zimmerman will be hung out to dry no matter the verdict.  If found guilty of second degree murder (a grossly charged over-kill) he goes to prison for years; if found innocent based on actions of self-defense, the ‘element’ (and that encompasses trouble makers and ramble-rousers of all races) will be out rioting in full force...hey, they’ll be rioting either way because it’s expected and the ‘element’ does aim to please...to please Barack Hussein Obama that is.

With a guilty verdict rioting will be done out of joy...a stress release so to say.  And with an innocent verdict, well then all hell will break lose because the ‘element’ will say, ‘see we told you whitey would get away with it.’  

Two...and all the while Obama will be instigating this feeding frenzy because now, either way, he can get his hoped for race war off the ground.  The New Black Panthers and other divisive groups will assuredly be at the Courthouse ready to light the flames of violence as soon as word reaches them from Obama’s people that now they have the catalyst they’ve been waiting for.  With the class warfare plan not working out to well, this is all Obama has left, and this he will use to his full advantage as he sits back with a big stupid smirk on his face plotting how he can get votes out of this tragedy...for this is a tragedy no matter which way the verdict goes.

Hopefully, people will see the facts in this case, the real facts, NOT the media hyped sob story about a supposed innocent child racially profiled by a bigoted man out for blood, because facts have proven this NOT to be the case.  The last thing our country needs is a countdown to a race war, especially a race war started for the selfish political purposes of a selfish narcissistic man...Barack Hussein Obama.

One...hopefully this countdown will be aborted before a race war does indeed become a sad reality.
WND EXCLUSIVE

Hawaii Five-O: Sheriff Joe sends detectives to Honolulu

Cold Case Posse seeks to crack mystery of Obama's birth 50 years ago

120521wave
In a major development in his probe of Barack Obama’s eligibility for Arizona’s 2012 presidential ballot, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has dispatched his lead Cold Case Posse investigator and a deputy detective to Hawaii.

The mission to Obama’s purported birthplace comes as the Hawaii Department of Health continues to resist efforts by Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett to verify that the Honolulu agency has a valid birth certificate on file for Obama.

Former Bergen County, N.J., detective Mike Zullo and his volunteer team were commissioned by Arpaio last September to investigate Obama’s eligibility after citizens raised concerns about the authenticity of the birth record the White House posted on its website. Zullo’s team announced March 1 that it found probable cause that the document is a forgery.

Zullo’s investigation is a volunteer effort, but the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office has sent him to Hawaii with an MCSO deputy detective for safety reasons and to act as a liaison between MCSO and local law enforcement.

WND reporter Jerome Corsi is embedded with the investigators in Hawaii with the provision that reporting during the trip be curtailed to protect the investigation.

Arpaio told WND Friday that the Hawaii Department of Health’s refusal to confirm to Bennett that it has a valid Obama birth certificate on file makes it look like Hawaii officials “are hiding something.”

Bennett has said that he might keep Obama’s name off of the state’s presidential ballot if he doesn’t receive the confirmation.

Eight weeks ago, the secretary of state asked Hawaii officials merely for an email confirming the Department of Health has a certified copy of the birth certificate, but Hawaii officials have not complied.

Zullo told WND Friday that Hawaii’s refusal to comply “is just another outright, glaring display of stonewalling that the Sheriff’s Office has encountered since Day One conducting this investigation.”

Zullo said “common sense at this point should be everyone’s guide.”

“If this was a non-issue, it wouldn’t be going on eight weeks waiting for the state of Hawaii to verify anything,” he said.

Over the weekend, KTVK-TV in Phoenix reported the Hawaii attorney general’s office has told Bennett he needs to take certain steps to confirm Obama’s birth records.

The steps include Bennett proving that he “legitimately needs confirmation to update records at his office.”

Zullo told WND that Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office investigators have spoken at length with Bennett regarding the president’s birth record. Zullo said his team spoke with Bennett as recently as last week.

“We are in the beginning stages of enlightening him to critical information that the sheriff has acquired during this investigation,” Zullo said.

‘It looks like they’re hiding something’

Arpaio’s team also is investigating the president’s Selective Service registration form, which his team also found probable cause to be a forgery.

He told WND he’s not getting much cooperation with federal and state governments.

“But that doesn’t matter; we’re still going to continue our investigation and see if those documents are forged,” he said.

Regarding the Hawaii Department of Health, Arpaio noted he’s said since the beginning of the investigation last fall, “Show me the microfilm.”

“They won’t do that, so it looks like they’re hiding something,” he said.

Arpaio said he will continue his investigation regardless of whether or not Obama gets on the ballot.

In an interview last Thursday with Phoenix radio host Mike Broomhead of KFYI, Bennett was asked if he would remove Obama’s name from the ballot if Hawaii won’t reply to his request.

“That’s possible. Or the other option would be that I would ask all the candidates, including the president, to submit a certified copy of their birth certificate,” Bennett said.

Bennett explained that under Hawaii law, government officials can request verification that the state has possession of a valid birth certificate.

“They could say yes tomorrow, and the whole thing goes away,” Bennett said. “If they can’t say yes to that simple question, then it makes me wonder if we have to take it to another level.”

Bennett said that regardless of Hawaii’s response, he needs “to have to have some simple verification that people are qualified for the office if they’re going to be on the ballot here in Arizona.”

The Arizona official insisted he’s not a “birther” and denied he’s trying to appease “birthers” because he wants to run for governor.

“I believe the president was born in Hawaii – or at least I hope he was,” Bennett said.
