A Vast Hawaiian Conspiracy

The Illuminati's black helicopters are circling:

Slightly more amusing, however, was just how high [Sheriff Joe] Arpaio was able to take the level of bizarre behavior and paranoia with the world watching through multiple live streams on the internet. 

Mike Zullo, Arpaio's volunteer "cold case" investigator who has been looking into the birth certificate for 10 months, told the crowd of local journalists that he and the sheriff had been threatened and were possibly in danger for uncovering the information. He said Arpaio personally assigned an armed deputy to tag along with him on a trip to Hawaii in May to protect him from potential threats. Zullo showed photos of Hawaiian police cars that he said were sent to intimidate them as they sleuthed around the islands looking for clues. 

"It's time for this charade to stop," Zullo said. He claimed a grand a coverup was afoot. "This is a real long time to be looking into something...Eventually something's gotta give."
