Congress Won’t Act on Arpaio’s Call for Investigation of National Security Threat; Should the Military?

Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Ariz., and lead Cold Case Posse investigator Mike Zullo set out last year to prove President Obama was born in Hawaii and that all the rumors about his birth certificate were unfounded.

After nine months of investigation, they’ve come to the opposite conclusion, that the birth certificate and other documents relating to the president’s past are forgeries and that there has been a massive coverup, although they have not directly accused Obama of knowledge of or participation in any such criminal acts.

What Arpaio and Zullo did say at a press conference Tuesday is that the latest information they’ve uncovered reveals a serious national security threat and shores up the case for fraud in the tale of Obama’s Hawaiian birth.

During the press conference, Zullo related how his team of investigators found and interviewed the person who actually would have signed Obama’s birth certificate, and she offered information that solidifies the case that the document released by the White House was tampered with.

Specifically, some boxes that are filled in on the certificate are marked with a handwritten numeric code, 9, meaning no information was provided and the boxes should have been left blank. Also, the clerk who signed Obama’s birth certificate, Verna Lee, indicated that Obama’s birth certificate was out of sequence if he had been born at Kapioloni Hospital as claimed.

But what led investigators to conclude that there is an imminent national security threat is the discovery that Hawaii’s law has a flaw in it such that any foreigner can obtain a Hawaiian birth certificate just by showing he has resided in Hawaii. The information presents Arpaio with a quandary.

“Although I am having a difficult time deciding who to forward this information to given the fact that the obvious choices report directly to the president, I cannot stand by and hold on to information that threatens to weaken national security,” Arpaio said.

(Or as the future Commissioner Gordon said in the first Batman movie with Christian Bale, “In a town this bent, who is there to report to?”)

Although Arpaio called for Congress — “someone” — to investigate this situation, he’s right that no one under Obama will lift a finger, for two reasons: one, Obama ordered Homeland Security to ignore Arizona law enforcement in revenge for the state’s immigration policy being upheld by the Supreme Court; and two, Obama clearly intends to weaken U.S. borders by using his executive order to grant amnesty to young illegal aliens and by closing Border Patrol stations in Republican states.

Since Congress has allowed Obama to get away with making himself a de facto king by going around Congress and declaring amnesty by his own, sole authority, there is no reason to think Congress would act on Arpaio’s new information.

So this raises a question, and it’s a scary question to have to ask: Is it time for the military to step in and stop Obama and our other elected leaders from weakening our national security?

The Oath of Office taken by officers of the uniformed services upon commissioning states:

I, [name], do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.

This oath is recognized as requiring officers of the military to refuse to obey unconstitutional orders. Should it be construed as requiring them to step in when both the Executive and Legislative Branches appear to be colluding to weaken our national defense?

Have Obama and the hands-off Congress risen to the level of a domestic enemy?
