Nutbag Joe Arpaio: Obama’s Fake Birth Certificate Was Totally Fabricated By The Hawaii State Government

They just won’t let go. From World Net Daily

The chief investigator for Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s probe of the validity of the image Barack Obama released as his birth certificate says evidence suggests the involvement of the Hawaiian government in the alleged fabrication.

WND reported last week that Arpaio and his chief investigator on the Obama birth certificate issue, Mike Zullo, held a news conference to reveal evidence they say shows the document was fabricated on a computer.

Zullo showed how the digital images on the document released by Obama in a White House news conference allegedly were copied from another document. Zullo said the alleged fraud apparently involved the Hawaiian government.

His comments came in an interview on the Hagmann Report, where he was joined by pastor, author, radio host and former law-enforcement officer Carl Gallups of the PPSIMMONS blog, who was made a special deputy by the sheriff for the purposes of information exchange and accountability.

Zullo explained the investigation found that some of the images on the Obama document image apparently were copied from an original birth certificate that belongs to a woman named Johanna Ah’nee.

    They have been lying so long they don’t know of any other way.

  • JaniceInToronto

    These folks are just delusional.
    Unfortunately, the have the political power now.
    Sorry about that, eh?

    • canoebum

      It’s not delusion; it’s race hatred, plain and simple.

      • Ray Butlers

        Correct! We have to stop thinking of these people as ignorant, stupid, uneducated or crazy. This moral choice of theirs is deliberate and the reason is race hatred. We all know it.

      • JaniceInToronto

        Oh, the delusion is real. So are the lovely attributes you mention.
        It’s a lose-lose thing..

      Heard someone at a holiday gathering spout all sorts of BS like this (including “Obama’s grandmother said he was born in Kenya”). When asked for sources, the only answer was: it’s all over the news. The stupid, it hurts.

      • faith.rodrigue

        There are a lot of people who don’t like President Obama simply because he’s black they just don’t say it out loud. Apparently being a closet racist is the only thing they know.

        What’s not to like about this president? RECORD unemployment numbers, legalized gay marriage, 5% growth, best year for jobs since 1999, consumer confidence up, deficit down 60% in 2014, gas prices low, health insurance cheaper than ever ($85/month), car insurance cheaper than ever ($25/month from Insurance Panda), the 1% starting to be taxed more!

        It’s called being a two faced hypocrite, those are the same people who are cyber bullies because they’re too much of a coward to say SHlT to your face. It’s the Republicans you really have to look for,they’re only interest is protecting the rich. Who do you think picks up the slack when they don’t pay their fair share of taxes ?

        • JT

          You seemed to be a dual personality. Didn’t you write “Trump will be the greatest ever POTUS.”

      • (((dagobarbz)))

        My response would be, “He’s out of office now. Get over it.”

        • JT

          It wouldn’t be mine.

          • (((dagobarbz)))

            Beating dead horses is such a bore!

          • JT

            Ignorance unopposed replicates itself.

          • JNagarya

            You’re the dead-horse beater. And self-evidently a bore.

        • JNagarya

          Of course you would. No legitimate basis or explanation for doing so. Just say it — facts and truth — evidence — don’t matter where characterless sniping and hate-speech from self-haters will do.
          Record employment? Cut Republican-built deficit by 60 per cent? “Get over it”? Is it smart to “get over” being intelligent?

          • (((dagobarbz)))

            You seem to be a troll, adrift without a target. Your comments are not in any way related to my posts. I had one of those last week too…did you just change your nick?

        • sword

          My brother will not be satisfied until all traces of the Obama administration has been totally erased. “How dare a black man be President” and to make matters worse, be a Democrat. “Why couldn’t he have been a Thomas or Carson?”

    • JNagarya

      It’s a toss-up: more stupid than hate-filled? More hate-filled than stupid?

  • Natty Enquirer

    Whatever Arpaio has ought to go into the DSM-6.

    • kaydenpat


  • Halou

    Right. So their evidence that Obama’s 1961 birth certificate is a forgery comes from the fact that the digital copy of the document is a digital copy?

    • BobSF_94117

      Sounds pretty damning to me!

    • kaydenpat

      No. It comes from the fact that Obama is Black. Nuff said.

      • JNagarya

        They could have got over that were they to focus on the fact that he’s white.

    • JNagarya

      The fact is that the REPUBLICAN governor verified that the birth certificate was genuine.

  • MBear

    Popped by WND to read the comments to get my blood pressure up. Waking up *just* with coffee is insufficient, perhaps.

    Good morning!

    • Treant

      Morning! Have you blown a blood vessel yet from the WingNutDaily comments?

      • MBear

        Actually, I got a good laugh.
        I think I have to laugh.
        I’m not terribly bright, but it’s pleasing to know there are people much…umm…”stupider” than I. 🙂

        • RoFaWh

          It’s not a laughing matter: too many people believe that rag.

    • kaydenpat

      Never read the comments on YouTube or Rightwing blogs!! Just don’t.

      • JNagarya

        I routinely silence the YouTube wingnuts. Stick to facts, avoid personal attacks (except to turn theirs around), and they get flustered and STFU.

  • Earl

    If the drug I was using caused that level of hatred and paranoia, I’d quit the drug.

    In nutty’s case, his drug is hatred and paranoia. If he hadn’t caused such harm, I’d pity him.

  • Gustav2

    This comment is why they won’t let it go (and a Black man can’t be in the WHITE House)

    “This is the perfect opportunity for the Trump administration to use every muscle of force to bring out the truth on this matter. Which will, make every judge, every law and every executive order by Obama to be void. And shows that the MSM really is a fake and is not about news, whatsoever. This will give the Trump administration a clean slate to get the country back on the right tracks. And, there are a major amount of democrat senate seats coming up for vote in 2018.” (spelling corrected)

    • Ray Taylor

      That sounds like a Kellyanne Conway comment.

    • secretlab

      Facts to order: discrediting Obama has been their insane plan all along. After all, Trump himself has been behind ‘birtherism’. We live in very dangerous times.

    • KnownDonorDad

      Now I want to see the original spelling.

    • JNagarya

      The “right” track?

      Fixed: the Reich track.

  • TexasBoy

    Asylums…we need mental health asylums.

    • gaymex1

      Yes…and I’m ready to check in. It would be a relief inside the walls–an escape from insanity.

  • chris james

    “…Carl Gallups of the PPSIMMONS blog, who was made a special deputy by the sheriff…” Does this mean the state of Arizona is paying this fool as a deputy to investigate this crap? If I was a taxpayer there I would be really pissed off that Arpaio was wasting my money on this garbage. They are all mentally ill.

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    WIll these people never fucking stop ??!?

    • worstcultever

      no. never ever. this is one of the big things i hate about life. the assholes have more energy than the nice regular chill people, and they goddamn wreck everything.

      • CanuckDon

        They certainly have more time because no one wants to spend any moments socializing with them.

        • JNagarya

          It isn’t more time; it’s all their time, because they haven’t a life worth living. And they don’t grasp that the immediate victim damaged by hate is the hater.

      • Tiger Quinn

        Then I guess we’d better stop bellyaching and become LIKE them. They keep winning.

        • JNagarya

          Hate isn’t winning — and that is all they have. The first person damaged by their hate is themselves.

      • bzrd

        it’s not more energy, they just don’t have a life while the rest of us are very busy with living

        • (((dagobarbz)))

          That life you’re busy living is about to change, without your permission.

          I guess permission was when Trump was elected. Never mind!

          • JNagarya

            In six months you’ll be lying that you didn’t vote for Trump.

          • (((dagobarbz)))

            I didn’t and it’s not a lie.

      • (((dagobarbz)))

        It’s because nobody kills them. All this tolerance of ignorance drives me crazy!

      • glass

        They actually have NOTHING but hate, nothing… at… all.
        Remove their hatred and they shrivel up and die. They live to make others miserable. They are the largest untreated mental illness on Earth.

      • RoFaWh

        Charge, try, and convict them of a conspiracy to overthrow the Constitution, sentence them to forty years at hard labor, and watch them slowly convert large rocks into gravel.

    • Giant Monster Gamera

      No, because this is how they win.

      • JNagarya

        What do they win? Increased impoverishment.

    • DesertSun59

      Name a single moment they’ve stopped. It’s impossible. Their sole purpose is to take total control of the US’s economy and military.

      Come Jan 20, they will have the entire store to themselves.

    • kaydenpat

      Nope. Look at Roe v. Wade. They’ve been going after it since the ’70s and won’t stop until every pregnancy ends in a birth.

    • JNagarya

      Their only alternative is to get a life worth living. But hate, in addition to being self-destructive, is more addictive than opioids.

  • j.martindale

    I would rather talk about the fact that tRrump’s grandfather was a professional pimp, his father was tight with the mob, tRump married a porn star, and he defrauded thousands of people in his business. A birth certificate is small potatoes compared to them facts.

    But this is just the rethug sideshow. We need to focus on what is important: blocking all the cabinet nominations.

    • canoebum

      They can’t be blocked unless some GOP Senators vote with the Democrats against a nominee. They ended the filibuster on all nominations except the Supreme Court.

      • j.martindale

        The need to get the opponents of the tea party in the rethug congress to be embarrassed about having racists and crazies in these positions. If they stand together and can make a big enough issue in Maine and Arizona, perhaps we can make some headway.

        • JNagarya

          The Republican Tea Party “opponents” are no different than the Tea Party, only more successful at pretending otherwise.

          The Republican Party is the party of deranged racism. That’s why Trump got (and has refused to renounce) the endorsements of the American Nazi Party and the Ku Klux Klan, and the Republican Party nonetheless embraces Trump. All that matters is “winning”; it doesn’t matter how.

    • Tiger Quinn

      The funny thing is that the conservatives think that becoming President somehow absolves all of that. We’ll be bringing it up daily.

      • JNagarya

        We’re going to be hearing a great number of novel “legal” theories of how Trump is exempt from the rule of law, up to and including the Constitution itself.

        The precedent was established by Republican Nixon, and expanded upon by the Republican Bushit criminal enterprise.

    • kaydenpat

      Trump’s father was also a member of the KKK, which perfectly explains Trump.

    • Platos_Redhaired_Stepchild

      We need to block everything Trump does! We need to Teabag the GOP!

  • Chucktech

    Gosh… Guess you better impeach him, real quick…

  • BobSF_94117

    I gotta say, at this point, I hope it’s all true.


  • Skeptical_Inquirer

    OT: somewhat better news. Planned Parenthood is having a huge increase in donations.

    “In refreshingly hopeful news, The Guardian reported on Sunday that donations to Planned Parenthood have spiked dramatically in the six weeks since Donald Trump was elected President, totaling more than 300,000 individual donations, which is 40 times its normal rate.

    A Planned Parenthood spokesperson told The Guardian that 70 percent of donors had never given to the organization before and about half of the donors are millennials.

    • BearEyes

      that’s encouraging. I’ve been giving to them every year since the mid 80’s

    • DesertSun59

      I’m one of the reasons for their increased coffer, too. Proudly having done so.

    • kaydenpat

      Great. This will help to offset federal defunding.

    • Vista-Cruiser

      This is good, but I’m afraid we’ll all run out of money before we can pry a branch of government out of Republican hands.

    • JNagarya

      And the Republican Congress will use that information as excuse to cut public funding.

  • Kruhn

    And the cycle of fake news continues! So this man needs to continue in his efforts to deligitimize Mr. Obama just because he’s not of the “approved skin color”.

    Why won’t I be surprised that some other yokel tries to investigate the matter in person giving Obama’s protective detail overtime.

    • RoFaWh

      I’ve heard a rumor that at least one of Arpaio’s grandparents was black.

  • aar9n

    The investigation revealed that Jesus rode on a dinosaur too!

    • Really?? Do you know what type he rode upon? I’m hoping for triceratops.

      giggle, snort, what fools these birthers are……

  • Yeah, pretty much. Americans are cherrypicking facts these day and the whole world is gonna suffer for it.

    • KnownDonorDad

      And the Internet was supposed to end fundamentalism of all stripes, wasn’t it? Prognosticators neglected the human factor.

      • JNagarya

        Prognosticators didn’t realize the need for EDITORS.

  • justme

    Sure thing Jhuey…They all knew that he would run and win the presidency with 51%+ of the votes.. Something NO GOPT-ard has gotten.. Even little Donnie only got 46% of the popular vote..

  • Silver Badger

    Sounds like an awful lot of trouble to go through when a fresh one could have been printed far more easily and cheaper.

  • Raising_Rlyeh

    Apparently then either time travelers or psychics work for the Hawaii records department because otherwise how the fuck would they know to fabricate a birth certificate some 40+ years ago?

    • DesertSun59

      Well, Righties do live in a fantasy land where some magical time period was when ‘America was great’, and to which we’ll be returning to once Trump is in office.

  • DaveMiller135

    To recap, in conservative thinking, the elections of 2008 and 2012 are current events, and require ongoing investigation, but the 2016 election is ancient history and I need to “let it go” rather than investigate allegations of foreign tampering with our democratic process. Are there courses in code switching?

      indeed there are, and for only three easy-payments of $19,99, we can teach you! 1-800-TRUMPU

    The only rational response to the fool Arpaio is laughter lots of laughter.

    • Vista-Cruiser

      This isn’t funny. At this point they’re only running up through score.

  • DesertSun59

    The deity that Joe worships has already spoken. The birth certificate wasn’t faked. These mixed messages that WND presents to its audience must be impossible to sort out.

  • Does anyone else have the odd unsettling feeling of being a reverse Rip Van Winkle? I’d swear it’s 1950’s all over again.

  • Patrick

    Imagine that a state printed up a birth certificate, using that process we all faked our births.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    Hey 2016, would you mind terribly taking this one…..

  • Bad Tom

    Mr. Arpaio, I have more faith in the integrity of the State of Hawaii Public Records than I do in your computer forensics chops.

  • Acronym Jim

    Shorter Joe Arpaio: “totally photoshopped; I can tell by the pixels.”

  • Uncle Mark

    Yeah…and Arpaio’s birth certificate was a forgery made by the Planters Nut Co.

  • TrollopeReader

    *phew* [wipes brow] ….finally, after all these years, we know !!


  • karmanot

    Arpaio is a poison toad

    • kareemachan

      Well, duh.

      • Bad Tom

        My recommendation: Do not lick him.

  • Cosmo Tupper

    Just more proof that law enforcement is both corrupt and racist. Going after a minority with FABRICATED evidence. How can we EVER trust them again?

  • Larry in Oklahoma

    First off, President Obama has been a gentleman to this scumbag in Arizona. Arpaio says he has proof but he can’t and won’t provide it. If there’s the birth certificate for some obscure lady named Johanna Ah’nee, then let’s see it and tell us where she is living. (I assume she is.) Let’s flash forward, it can’t be proven but if it could be, does this invalidate the past 8 years? I guess Arpaio is ever so pissed about Arizona’s having to recognize gay marriage? It’s crap like this and a lot more that caused him to lose his job. He can go around blaming other people but he’s the asshole that lost. Not his constituents, not President Obama, not Jan Brewer, but he alone caused him to be The Biggest Loser.

    • shrpblnd

      Ah’nee’s birth certificate can be found here:

      At first Birthers, including Orly Taitz, attempted to use this to say that Obama’s birth certificate was invalid, because the number sequence was off compared to a known birth certificate. There are many logical explanations for this, as birth certificate numbers are not assigned in exact order as births due to processing. Now they are saying that it is too close to a match, and this certificate was used as a template to construct Obama’s Birth Certificate. What a coincidence that both claims are based on the same birth certificate, but hey birth certificates from that era are pretty hard to find especially for these nutbags.

      The arguments I have read say that the angle of the date stamps are identical and since both were manually stamped, this is all but impossible, which indicates a cut and paste job. Also that the alignment of fields is identical, and this would not happen with standard form placed in a manual typewriter. Frankly, I don’t see it at all as the angles of the date stamp and the location of the typewritten fields are slightly different as would be expected. Look for yourself:

      I also read that Johanna was upset because her original birth certificate has not yet been returned to her, which no doubt has much sentimental value to her.

  • goofy_joe

    What does being born in the states protect against? We have home grown terrorists here who could, if motivated to, be placed in positions of power. The notion that only those born here are “safe” to hold the office is becoming an antiquated notion.

  • B Snow

    Since we now know that Republicans are *actually* doing everything they accuse Democrats of doing (voter fraud, power grabs/tyranny) maybe it’s time someone looked into Arpaio’s birth certificate. Sounds like a crazy foreign name to me.

        So much for Drumpf’s germ phobia and his agitated efforts to avoid VD while also dodging the draft.

  • KnownDonorDad

    Let’s entertain the notion that birth certificate was fake. How does Arpaio (or any birther) explain the birth announcements in two Hawaii newspapers?

    • Bad Tom

      He (and they) ignore inconvenient facts.
      No! Those newspapers are in on the conspiracy! Maybe you are! And me too! And I don’t even know it!!!11!1

  • Jaywithwords

    He should focus on his upcoming trial…

    • TrollopeReader

      ….and how he’ll look in his pink pajamas, and surviving on $0.33 per day meals ….

  • (((dagobarbz)))

    Arpaio is finished as “Arizona’s Sheriff.” I suppose he enjoyed the influence and attention, but the poor old guy is mistaken if he thinks returning to a nonexistent controversy concerning a man who is leaving public office is going to have any effect.

    Obama is out, it’s no longer an issue. Poor old stupid Joe can’t see that because he’s a one-trick pony and his trick is outdated and stale.

  • LesbianTippingHabits

    Joe Arpaio is also a parsimonious (cheap) tipper. Perhaps such a lame duck deserves minimal attention while still serving in public office, but not much longer.

    Remember, tips are good karma. And karma never lies.

    The Obama birth certificate conspiracy is even larger than you think.
    Hundreds, if not thousands, of old Honolulu newspapers had to be replaced in libraries all over the world, which then announced the birth of Barrack Obama in Hawaii.

    Of course, the Hawai’ian government was involved: it’s an official document, you fools.

    Do the birthers think that birth certificates grow on trees or something?
