We are living in strange times.

The Russian news service Pravda has written an extremely detailed article not only about Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s revelation of the forgery of Obama’s birth certificate and Selective Service document, but has picked up on the long-time charge of Obama’s obvious usurping of the presidency by ignoring the natural born clause of the U.S. Constitution. What is strange about this? Only that the article decries—almost mocks—the total mainstream media blackout.
The mainstream media couldn’t simply pretend that Arpaio’s news conference didn’t occur, stuffing it down an Orwellian memory hole, so they came up with another Obamabot explanation: that Arpaio is simply paying back the DOJ and Obama for their various criminal investigations of his department. This has been repeated ad nauseam before and after the press conference as if Arpaio has already been charged and convicted of these various “high crimes and misdemeanors.” Strangely, minutes after Arpaio’s conference, these various “charges” were repeated by a single Associated Press writer, Jacques Billeaud, and parroted verbatim within hours by literally hundreds of news organizations. Billeaud’s basis for the dismissal of Arpaio forgery charges: “Some critics suggest Arpaio’s aim is to divert attention from his own legal troubles while raising his political profile as he seeks a sixth term this year. The sheriff vehemently denies such strategies are in play.” Like the Body Snatchers movie, this blurb was used in hundreds if not thousands of news organizations and websites, and repeated not as opinion, which it is, but substantiated fact. Add to the news organizations that simply rewrote the article under someone else’s name and changed a few words, and this number would be in the tens of thousands. It makes the old Soviet Politburo in terms of speed and efficiency look like child’s play.
The “legal troubles” Billeaud refers to is Obama’s rogue DOJ alleging that Arpaio routinely uses racial profiling to make arrests, among other things. The evidence for this? When Arpaio, in customary fashion said, in effect, show me the money, DOJ, as they always do when someone stands up to their Brown Shirt tactics, retreated, babbling incoherently. As if a DOJ that is so corrupt dozens of lawmakers are calling for Holder’s resignation, if not impeachment, whose filthy hands are all over the Fast and Furious debacle, whereby hundreds of Mexican citizens have been murdered, and at least two U.S. citizens, and in which Holder has been mired in subverting justice at least back to the 1990s, versus a Sheriff that has had an exemplary career in the DEA, working all over the world, previously heading the DEA in Arizona, and now has been crowned with the title “America’s toughest Sheriff” for taking on the Obama machine— he is somehow less credible than what many have called the Department of “Injustice?” I don’t think so.
Back to the Pravda article: the article, written by Dianna Cotter, discusses the Obama forgery and natural born citizen issue in such a detailed matter, coming in a close second to Jerome’s Corsi’s Where’s the Birth Certificate? even going into the Obamabots in 2008 scrubbing law citation databases’ reference to the one definition of natural born citizen, as defined by the Supreme Court in Minor v. Happersett (88 U.S. 162) 1875. Cotter is incredulous that America is standing by with what she calls a usurpation of the presidency.
