Last week I told you about Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s investigation into the birth records of Barack Obama. Arpaio has been not only investigating the authenticity of Obama’s birth records, of which three different ones have been released by the White House, but he is also investigating the reports that Obama is using someone else’s Social Security Number.
He has told the White House that they need to authorize the Department of Health in Hawaii to open up all of the original paper and ink documents concerning Obama’s birth to an independent court-authorized forensic examination. Then and only then can the matter of the authenticity of the birth certificate and eligibility of Obama be resolved once and for all and put all rumors to rest.
Arpaio has always been tough on crime and criminals and as such as always received death threats. With Maricopa County being so close to the Mexican border, thousands of pounds of drugs are trafficked through the county on its way to dealers throughout America. Arpaio’s law enforcement agency has a special drug task force whose sole purpose is to stop the flow of drugs through the county.
The drug task force has been quite successful and is regularly arresting suppliers, traffickers and dealers and removing tons of drugs from the streets. With the success of the task force, Arpaio regularly receives death threats from the Mexican drug cartels. He turns all threats he receives over to his office to investigate and keep track of.
In addition to the drug cartel death threats, Arpaio has been receiving threats from loyal Obama supporters. When asked about the threats he’s been getting lately, Arpaio said he was shocked at how vile the threats from Obama fans have been. Then he said, "I've got the drug cartels from Mexico sending me death threats, and now I have the Obama supporters sending me death threats. I'm not sure which are worse."
But what does surprise Arpaio the most is how little national media coverage he has been receiving concerning the investigation. He admits that he’s a controversial figure and that he is regularly surrounded by media for one thing after another.
However, he has noticed that once he launched is investigation of Obama, the bulk of the national media vanished like cockroaches in a spotlight. Arpaio believes the media has the out of sight out of mind mentality concerning his investigation. Sheriff Joe said,
“Getting death threats is nothing new for me. But why has the media has decided to black out all news of our Obama investigation? That's what I don't understand.
"I'm a controversial guy and usually the media is all over me, but when I decided to investigate Obama, the media has suddenly gone missing in action."
"If the mainstream media thinks our investigation will go away if it remains unreported, they're wrong. The investigation is proceeding, and I fully anticipate we will publish a report early next year."
While the liberal media can’t get enough of Herman Cain and the accusations that have been leveled against him, their glaring absence in the Arpaio investigation of Obama speaks volumes. Their loyalty to their chief liberal in the White House runs stronger than their desire to cover what could be the history making news of the decade. And/or, the White House goons have also threatened the media if they cover Arpaio’s investigation.
Regardless of the liberal media’s aversion to the Obama investigation, there are other media outlets that are following Arpaio’s actions and they are eagerly awaiting the results, as are all of us.
