Arizona -- Obama's Waterloo?
Challenges range from border to birth certificate
|American Patrol Report -- March 5
On March 1, 2012, Arizona stood up and defended itself. On that day, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's cold case posse found that the birth certificate Obama says is his is a forgery. "Based on all of the evidence presented and investigated, I cannot in good faith report to you that these documents are authentic," Sheriff Arpaio said. "My investigators believe that the long-form birth certificate was manufactured electronically and that it did not originate in paper format as claimed by the White House." (Washington Times)
Also on March 1, the Arizona State Senate passed SB 1083, Senator Allen's "Special Missions Unit" of 300 volunteers would help secure the U.S.-Mexico border.
This followed a presentation by Glenn Spencer of Border Technology, Inc., to Allen's border committee on a system to detect and count everyone crossing the border illegally.
Arizona is now directly challenging Obama on border security and his own legitimacy.
"Obama and the Senate Democrats will rue the day when they got up and cheered when the president of Mexico attacked Arizona for trying to defend itself," said Glenn Spencer of American Patrol Report.
