Prior to President Barack Hussein Obama’s election in 2008 and about a couple of years afterwards I was a supporter of the Birther Movement. Birthers have been out of the news lately so if you have forgotten or are unaware what the Birthers stand for it goes something like this:
Birthers believe President Barack Hussein Obama was born in Kenya thus disqualifying him from eligibility for the Office of President of the United States. Further Birthers believe Obama’s Hawaii Birth Certificate is a forgery created by extreme Leftists to allow Obama to be a kind of Manchurian Candidate representing interests counter to the U.S. Constitution.
My evolution as a Birther went from stalwart believer, to believer but the power of the Office of POTUS would never allow a successful exposé, to abandoning the Birther Movement because I do believe Obama was born in Hawaii all the way to the present where there is a big “BUT” about birth issues. That big “BUT” runs something like this:
President Barack Hussein Obama was indeed born in Hawaii; however his mother married a Muslim Indonesian and immigrated with him to Indonesia along with her son “Barry”. Somewhere along this line of moving from the USA to Indonesia Obama became Barry Soetoro with his stepfather’s last name. He was registered as a Muslim in an elementary school in Indonesia. At some point he came back to the USA to live with his grandparents on his mother’s back in Hawaii. Now it is in Obama’s immigration status where his eligibility for POTUS may get sketchy.
Obama’s stepfather Lolo Soetoro registered Barry into Fransiscus Assisi School at Jakarta, Indonesia. Barry went from the Catholic school to the prestigious Besuki Public School. The Besuki School was once called Carpentier Alting Stichting Nassau School founded by the Dutch for Dutch colonialists in Indonesia. In 1962 the Dutch school was taken over by the Indonesian government. The Indonesian government transformed the renamed Besuki School in a prestigious school catering to Indonesian elites. By the time Barry transferred to Besuki his stepfather Lolo Soetoro had an influential government job, thus enabling Barry to attend. It is at the Besuki School that a guessing game emerges about our current POTUS.
A Blaze investigative journalist team led by Charles C. Johnson speculates that Barry could not have attended the Besuki School unless he was an official Indonesian citizen probably by virtue of stepfather Lolo adopting him. Of course Indonesian citizenship in and of itself would not have meant that Barry surrendered his American citizenship because he was not of the age of majority to make such a decision. So obviously the Birther issue is not an election issue for President Barack Hussein Obama.
(Stanley) Ann Dunham sent Barry and his half-sister Maya (fathered by Lolo – born in Indonesia) back to Hawaii to be educated in Hawaii. As Barry Soetoro Obama citizenship was declared as Indonesian even though it does stipulate he was born in Hawaii. Obama graduates from a private school in Hawaii called Punahou School. Obama attended Punahou School from 1971 (5th Grade) through to graduation in 1979. Relatively recently a fellow High School level student – Mia Marie Pope – claims Obama at the very least implied he was a foreign student of sketchy character that she guessed was a homosexual in man/boy relationships with old white men. BUT Obama supporters point out Ms. Pope might be trying to exploit the past by smearing Obama because there are other credible former classmates that provide a glowing picture of Obama’s character. Just like the impotence of Birther claims about Obama, Ms. Pope’s claim will do nothing to Obama’s present status as POTUS except perhaps to establish that which many Americans are already discovering (Huge scandal list); viz., that Obama lies to further his personal plans.
The thing that is sketchy is that Maya Soetoro retained her last name (until marriage) but what about Barry Soetoro? When did Barry the Indonesian become Barack Obama the Natural Born Citizen of America? Barry came to the USA/Hawaii to begin school at the 5th grade level at a prestigious private school. Obama supporters might ask, “Who cares when Soetoro became Obama when Obama was born on American soil in Hawaii?” AGAIN, this is where the Birther issue is a dead issue. The issue is: How was Obama perceived as a citizen while attending school – elementary, secondary and college – in America? Did Obama receive an education based on being a foreign subsidized student from nation of Indonesia?
I can understand Obama’s school records in Indonesia are not complete. After all in the 1960s and 1970s Indonesia was basically a Third World nation, just beginning to operate as an independent nation free of Dutch colonial rule. In America school records were not then nor now sketchy. AND YET, Obama has gone to great lengths to keep those school records from America away from the public weal. Especially in the case of college, did Obama attend Occidental and Columbia and perhaps Harvard as a foreign exchange student receiving foreign discounts academically?
AGAIN, Obama supporters should ask, “What does it matter if Barack Obama the Natural Born Citizen received foreign benefits to attend American colleges? After all Obama was still born on American soil, right?”
AND AGAIN, I stipulate Obama’s birth is NOT the issue! The issue is did Obama defraud colleges with a foreign status that might have included taxpayer money to attain his academic credentials? Fraud would be illegal, right? And if Obama committed fraud, how in the world did such a history escape the notice of law enforcement or Presidential vetting? Let’s say there was nothing illegal in the process (frankly I just don’t know), shouldn’t
American voters have been privy that Obama lied somewhere along his career line on his way to the Office of POTUS in 2008 AND AGAIN in 2012?
In the meantime Barack Obama has been using the power of the POTUS to keep an eye on his critics and detractors. Of course Obama is not fond of the Birthers. The Birthers may be wrong at pushing the – where was he born? – agenda, but the intrusive demand of Birthers to examine documents and records that will taint Obama’s reputation as an egomaniac Marxist liar (Andrew McCarthy on Obama lying) has been something Obama has prevented from the public eye (SA HERE).
One such Birther big dog is Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his Cold Case Posse. Arpaio has been a thorn in Obama’s side by examining what documents are available. He is convinced the Obama Birth Certificate is a fraudulent forgery. The actual document in and of itself may indeed by a forgery; nonetheless there is plenty of evidence from other locations that Obama was born in Hawaii. BUT STILL Obama is a proven liar and his insistence to keep his school records and early documentation in the dark is nearly unprecedented among past U.S. Presidents. So how does President Barack Hussein Obama prevent Sheriff Arpaio from stumbling upon some actual smoking gun documentation that indisputably shows the President as a fraud and liar that may indeed include some prosecutable legal infractions? Use the power of the Executive Order and his sycophant Attorney General to harass the good Sheriff to keep him busy.
In a recent fund raising email Sheriff Arpaio lists how Obama has used his powers to keep the Sheriff busy. You can read that list because I am going to post that email to simply demonstrate how Obama abuses his power and authority as President of the United States. Whether you donate to Sheriff Arpaio’s plea for funding is totally up to you.
Sheriff Joe Arpaio: I’m Under Attack

I need your help.
Let me lay it out for you. I continue to be under attack by Barack Obama’s federal government.
Two years ago, the Obama Justice Department sued me for so-called “civil rights” violations which turned out to be purely politically motivated, based on the timing of their lawsuit. Filed just months before the election, it was a blatant attempt on their part to influence my re-election as Sheriff.
But I won with your support.
Then, just two months after I was re-elected after being targeted by the media and millions of dollars in outside special interest groups, a recall campaign was launched against me.
But I beat them with your support.
Then, in the middle of the recall effort a federal judge claimed that my office engaged in racial profiling while we were enforcing illegal immigration laws. My office was following the guidelines that were laid out to us by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency. Yet, I’m the one they pin the “racial profiling” label on.
That same judge has now ordered a “federal monitor” to oversee the actions of my office. This is an egregious attempt by the federal government to take over my office and keep me from doing the job I was elected to do.
Shortly after that judge’s ruling, another federal judge ruled that we can no longer detain illegal immigrants that pay a coyote, or professional smuggler, to sneak them across our borders! You see, Arizona passed a law years ago that made human smuggling a crime. Yet, in every other instance, paying someone to break the law for you means that you too are guilty of a crime. But now, a federal judge is saying local law enforcement has no power to detain these criminals.
Do you see a pattern here? The federal government is going out of their way to tie the hands of my office and my deputies to enforce the law – and take over the office of a constitutionally elected Sheriff! This is unacceptable and it is why we are appealing these rulings. We’ll go all the way to the Supreme Court if we have to. This aggression will not stand.
But you know how pervasive and aggressive the federal government can be, especially under Barack Obama’s Justice Department.
Maricopa County in Arizona has been the gateway into the United States for illegal immigrants, human smuggling, drug-trafficking and illegal weapons for years now. But I’m the bad guy for trying to stop it?
That’s why I need your immediate support today. Will you stand with me by following this link and making an instant online contribution of $25, $50, $100 or more?
I am sure this is not the end of it. They’ll keep coming after me until I completely surrender. That’s not going to happen. I’m going to continue doing the job I was elected to do, and the job the people want me to do.
I’ve spent 50 years in law enforcement, including as a top official with the federal Drug Enforcement Administration around the world, and 21 years as Sheriff. I’m not about to back down to a bunch of political threats from a federal government that is simply out of control.
Between the federal government harassing me, radical activists protesting and burning me in effigy, and the numerous death threats against me and my family, it would be easy to surrender in this fight, retire from office and go away. But I won’t do that.
I’m going to keep fighting for what I know is right. I took an oath to protect and defend the US Constitution and I will keep that oath until my last breath.
But I need your help. You’ve been such a strong supporter that I must ask for your help again.
I have already filed the necessary paperwork to run for another term – much to the angst and consternation of my political opponents. They would just rather see me worn down and defeated but they have no idea how much more fight I have left in me.
But I cannot do it alone.
Will you please make a contribution to “Elect Sheriff Joe Arpaio” today? Your help and support will give me the resources I need to stand and fight against these groups that wish to see me go away.
And, a new law was recently passed here in Arizona that raises the contribution limits for my campaign. Those new limits are now $5,000 per person, which covers the primary and general election cycles. I know that’s a lot, so any amount you can give today, $500, $250, $100, $50 or even $35, is greatly appreciated.
Please click here to make a contribution today. I would be forever grateful if you would continue supporting my efforts and send a signal to my political opponents that I’m not done fighting just yet!
Thank you for everything you have done. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Sheriff Joe Arpaio
Maricopa County, Arizona
P.S. Please don’t delete this email. It’s clear there is a pattern here that shows the federal government is coming after me. They don’t want me to expose their hypocrisy in enforcing illegal immigration laws and it doesn’t fit their political agenda. I’m up against the most powerful government in the world and I need your help today! Thank you.
P.P.S. We must get the word out about this. Please do me one more favor after making a contribution please forward this email to at least five of your friends or family members who share our values in upholding the Rule of Law! Again, I thank you for your support.
