WASHINGTON – (Newsblaze) – If Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s predictions of “a universe shattering” report are true in the promised late March News release, then he may well be taking Capitol Hill by surprise, if the results of a Newsblaze query of two Republican Congressmen is common to others.
After the monthly Heritage Foundation event “Conversations with Conservatives” we tracked down some members of congress, to find out what they may or may not know about the subject.
We were only able to interview Rep. Raul Labrador (R-Idaho) and Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-Kansas) Both of whom are the co-chairs of the monthly conservative press availability. We asked if they had been following developments around Sheriff Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse. Our question centered around what their constituents were saying, and if they thought the sheriff was doing the right thing.
In recent months, the investigation by the Arizona law enforcement agency has taken some dramatic turns. One such turn involves a criminal case separate from the actual birth certificate. There was also the promise that “major media” is ready to break the release of the information. In addition, there was the disclosure that employees of the Defense Advance Research Projects Agency had some involvement, plus a list of the IP addresses of suspects at the White House who may have forged the April 27, 2011 released Obama Birth Certificate.
The results of our query probably will come as no surprise to eligibility activists who have been following the case and have been frustrated with the lack of answers from members of the legislative branch.
Our questions were first placed to Rep. Labrador and he told Newsblaze “I really haven’t been following that issue at all.”
Next we talked to Rep. Huelskamp who said almost the same thing – with some additions. He said, “Honestly, I haven’t been following that at all.”
Rep. Huelskamp did say what his constituents have been focusing on. “I just did fifteen town halls in the last couple of months. I don’t think it [the birth certificate] came up at all. But what is coming up is the lawlessness of this administration. Not worried about the President. They are very excited when I talk about articles of impeachment of the attorney general. The birth certificate is not an issue that I’ve heard. We’re not receiving any calls or emails it’s just the broader issue of an administration that does whatever it wants.”
It could be that people have given up on any information ever coming out, or they could be just waiting until it does.
Certainly, the politicians would not want to be stirring it up, because it would only have a negative effect on them, with no evidence.
So, with very few people talking about Obama’s eligibility, at least in public, if Sheriff Arpaio really has some earth shattering news, there will be shocked looks on many faces around the country.
Another possibility is that it could go off with less than a bang – more like a damp squib. Only time will tell, but thankfully there isn’t long to wait.
Conversations with Conservatives returns next month.
