Arpaio felt that testifying in GA was too much of a “burden”. Refused to appear

Posted on | January 27, 2012 | 35 Comments

There was a lot of talk about sheriff Arpaio. WND was promoting him and his investigation and seeking donations for him and his posse. Keep in mind: even if a sheriff  comes up with a report, suggesting a need for prosecution, it is up to a District Attorney, whether to file charges and further it is up to the judge, whether to hear the case on the merits or throw it out of court on technicality. 

GA was a golden opportunity for Arpaio to testify, to provide his report. It gave him an opportunity to skip the step of DA or AG, who may or may not cooperate and be in front of the judge, who is willing to listen and hear the case on the merits. Arpaio blew this opportunity. I did not want to say anything before the trial, I did not want to upset people, but bottom line Arpaio simply blew it. Keep in mind, an attorney does not have to issue subpoenas. You issue subpoenas only when you are not sure the witness will appear and testify. I sent Arpaio a subpoena. I called WND and related to their political editor Bob Unruh, that I finally have one judge willing to listen. I related, that  Corsi or Farah want to testify -here  is an opportunity. I also sent an e-mail to this extent.  I also explained that I sent a subpoena to Arpaio just as a cover for him, it would give him an opportunity to state, that he is not going after Obama because he wants to, but because he is complying with the subpoena. Below is a letter from Arpaio’s attorney, saying that Arpaio will not cooperate. He gave 2 reasons: it is too much of a “burden”  on him and the hearing is in GA and he is in AZ. I could go to a circuit judge in AZ and extend the jurisdiction to AZ and seek reciprocal enforcement, however I concluded, that it will be a waste of my time and money.

Arpaio’s unwillingness to testify tells me that:

a. he does not have any new evidence aside from what I provided him

b. I question how serious he is about removing Obama from office. If he really was serious about it, he would have appeared and testified and he would have taken a full advantage of this rare opportunity to be in front of a judge immediately and present his story.

I believe, that at some point Arpaio will come up with a report, but I question whether it would lead to anything.

Similarly, I contacted a  talk show host Mark Gillar. He had several investigators on his show: Mara DeBest, Tom Harrigan. I contacted all of them. I was telling Mark Gillar, that all of these investigators are totally worthless, in that,  if they are not willing to appear in court and testify and put their money where their mouth is, their opinion is of no value.

 It is easy to be a couch warrior or a keyboard warrior. It is hard to be on the front line, take bullets, roll with the punches, take enormous abuse from right and left, risk one’s license, risk sanctions from corrupt judges, risk one’s life.      

Lastly, here is an explanation, why I did not need to get a subpoena enforcement in DC against Obama, but was seeking reciprocal enforcement against Fuddy. The difference is because Obama is a defendant, he availed himself to the jurisdiction of GA by placing his name on the ballot in GA and he consented to be served through his attorney, who is located in GA. So, by serving Obama through  his attorney in GA, I made the subpoena against him instantaneously valid, I did not need to seek any reciprocal subpoena enforcement in DC. The judge agreemed with me on that point.

At any rate, the public is entitled to know, that Arpaio refused to cooperate, even though I did not even need a subpoena for a cooperating witness, and Arpaio could be in front of a judge immediately and he could present all his evidence immediately.

    Forget Arpaio. He will never be of any help. He just wanted a few donations and a free trip to Hawaii like so many of these grifters. He’s a loser. He’s old.

    He’s got his own huge legal problems that he will be dealing with the rest of his life.

    Thank you for the explanation, I am still in support of whatever Arpaio has done and continues to do. He is a hero and an honest lawmaker. I trust his decision and forgive him if he did not have it in him at this time, with all the heat he has been taking recently. Let it be.

    Ms. Taitz, you too are my hero. Thank you for your tenacity and strength. Stay the course, this was a big win for you and for all of us. You embody Truth and Justice.

    I write to thank you for your candid observation of Sheriff Joe. Don’t count on him. He lives for the limelight.

    I have lived in Phx for almost 30 years now. Sheriff Joe is a megalomaniac. He has done many of the right things (tent city, pink underwear) but perhaps for the wrong reasons. (Publicity.) Even if he started out on the right foot, he has misused his power to attack his political enemies.

    You probably know he was in Iowa recently to support Rick Perry. A subpoena to testify is a lot more compelling. But Joe is a politician. He doesn’t care about you or what’s right. He cares about what’s in it for him.

    Will the governor be including in his announcement that arrest warrant has been issued for Barry Soetoro AKA Barack Husein Obama on charges of high treason, identity theft, document forgery, Social Security fraud, Selective Service fraud, tax fraud, INS violations? And there is probably a long list of other charges I can’t think of right now.

    I was under the impression that due to the case being an active investigation that hasn’t come to a conclusion he didn’t want to testify.

    January 28th, 2012 @ 8:33 am

    You are right. All of these so-called “investigators” need to either, “put-up or shut-up.”

    It takes a lot of guts and courage to do what you are doing and there are millions of patriots whom you are representing during these proceedings who are greatly appreciative of your efforts. You are a true freedom-fighter and we are blessed that you are an American citizen.

    There are millions of people all over the world who would cut their arm off to be an American, and many natural-born US citizens do not appreciate what they have here because they have no frame of reference such as living in a dead-end rat-hole third-world country.

    I am convinced that unless we get off our couches, put down the beer and pizza, and stop watching porn and football then we just might wake up in time to save the constitutional republic. Apathy really does kill democracy.

    Those lawyers are promoting Obama,Sr. as the father when nobody has proof of that. That is they are NOT challenging The Obama Story fable. The Birth certificate is only one way. A workaround.

    Best to subpoena the Stanley Anne Dunham school records in Seattle to find when she graduated. She was born November 29, 1942. Her birthstate Kansas has a school attendance cutoff date of August 31th making her Class of 1961. The alleged Obama birthdate August 4, 1961 has a conception time in November 1960 when claimed mother was in a Washington State high school.

    We have the University of Washington school attendance records saying she first atttended in 1961.

    cc darn good thing there are so many people that don’t give up as easily as you do. The truth will always surface and thank God there are still many that will not stop until the TRUTH is exposed.

    Orly I always wondered why Arpaio insisted on waiting till February to release his report. One would have thought he would have released it prior to the hearing. I’m beginning to think he is another Donald Trump. “On their side in disguise.”

    Our prayers are still with you Orly and my God give you all the strength and endurance you need to expose the truth.

    One thing for sure Joe lost one of his most ardent supporters. Orly, did you ever wonder why Obuma has never sued you for slander. I will answer for you…The Truth no matter how vild cannot slander. nuff said he is not who he says he is. Why can’t these so judges see that. I thought all Judges were supposed to be intelligent?

  19. Rene' Richard
    January 28th, 2012 @ 10:56 am

    I must admit, Ive always wondered why Arpaio picked an arbitrary time to release the findings. I would think the findings would be released at the conclusion of exhaustive results…when no more information can be uncovered…that would be the conclusion of the investigation. How could he know back in Aug. or Sept. that he would not be able to find anymore evidence by Feb? Maybe there’s something he knows that we dont about Feb.? I guess we’ll have to wait and see. He is representing the people of his country in the actions he’s pursuing. That must be taken into account. I do imagine, as a law enforcement officer of his state, that he has an obligation to be open and forthright about testifying to the truth whenever called on to do so! I do hope that he is truly on “Our” side. This is the first indication that he may not be. There are a lot of powers out there that are obviously influencing people, Govt. representatives, talking heads, Govt. agencies…etc. Maybe they got to Sheriff Joe?

    January 28th, 2012 @ 10:58 am

    Orly, go go go! You’re doing an amazing job and millions of people in America and around the world love that you are standing up for the rule of law.

    FYI, you probably already have this but just in case, I ran across a congressional record from the author of the 14th Amendment. Yes, I realize that “natural born citizen” is a distinction from “citizen,” but I did not know that even the author of the 14th Amendment stated that it was common knowledge at the time that “natural born citizen” was someone born on US soil to US citizen parents.

    So, just in case you don’t already have it, here’s an example (but by no means the definative authority on the subject):

    With hopes that Georgia will disqualify obama and not allow him on the Georgia, I am now increasingly concerned that Arpaio will be able to undercut the effect of that ruling — if that IS the ruling — amoings mp;ang other states when he releases his report and he says he isn’t able to confirm anything . . .

    January 28th, 2012 @ 12:22 pm

    Another subject but still ties in with Obama and his ‘unknowns’ – – when is the • Lawsuit Filed Against Hawaii Department of Health on Behalf of Duncan Sunahara
    Lawsuit against the Hawaii Department of Health has been filed by Hawaii Attorney Gerald Kurashima on behalf of Duncan Sunahara, Virginia Sunahara’s brother. The case has been assigned to Judge Nishimura.

    By Miki Booth
    January 27, 2012


    “Wednesday, January 25, 2012 was the longest day I would never want to re-live but feel it necessary to document for posterity. The day had its ups and downs and ins and outs and Article II, Section 1.5 Constitutionalist, also known as “birthers,” “racists,” “wing-nuts” and “fringe” were holding our collective breaths and praying like never before.

    The day actually began much earlier when, for the first time in over three years, a judge had agreed to hear a lawsuit that would require Barack Obama, leader of the free world and most powerful man on earth, to appear in a Georgia courtroom. This time it was not a federal case as in many challenges brought by attorney Orly Taitz and others, but instead, an administrative judge for the state of Georgia would hear the case. Judge Michael Malihi scheduled the hearing and issued subpoenas. Obama’s Atlanta lawyer, Michael Jablonski, quickly issued a Motion to Dismiss. Of course we expected this. Obama’s dream team of Perkins Coie and his stable of attorneys across the United States and under the auspices of Eric Holder’s DOJ and Elena Kagan, Obama’s pre-election counsel and now sitting Supreme Court Justice would come down on Orly Taitz like an iron fist. But on January 3, their Motion to Dismiss was DENIED.

    This was big. Would we really have our day in court? It was almost too good to be true. Dozens of lawsuits over Obama’s eligibility had been dismissed for “lack of standing,” “wrong jurisdiction” or “procedural errors.” But this time a judge actually moved our case forward because he read the Georgia law correctly in that it explicitly gives Georgia residents the right to challenge candidates wanting to be on the state ballot.

    We blogged, we called, we emailed and got the word out to as many people as we could. We anxiously monitored the mainstream news but again, nothing except a small mention on FOX Brett Baier’s “Grapevine,” where he tossed in the “birther” epithet meant to discredit us. We were used to that. The lawsuit moved forward.

    Obama’s lawyer, Jablonski, spoke to reporters saying the lawsuit would be dismissed just as every challenge has been defeated and Obama would not be going to Georgia. Of course the traditional media carried his story to the ends of the earth. But we moved on.


    The copy of Obama’s birth certificate posted on the White House website confirmed that Obama is not natural born as required in the Constitution. Early on Wednesday, we learned that Leo Donofrio, renown authority on the Constitution and federalist papers, had filed a 200 page Amicus (friend of the court) Brief which joined the documented evidence irrefutably proving that Obama is not a natural-born Citizen and even his status of “native born Citizen” is questionable because of the suspected birth document forgery.”

    Hi jjkrjw!

    Judge Malihi has moved up the date of announcing the judgement to Feb 1. At that time he will send his Judgement which is actually a recommendation to Brian Kemp, GA Sec. of State. Mr. Kemp has indicated he will announce the decision of accepting the judges decision. It will be a default judgement to the plaintiffs and Obama will NOT be on GA ballot. Lawyers for plaintiffs also got the case closed meaning that nothing else can go in the file so BO lawyers cannot add anything. The evidence of fraud and forgery is now in the legal record and will be available to the public and for other challenges to use. We FINALLY had a day in court where we could present our side.”
