The Obama Birth Certificate and Revisionist Journalism 1

Posted on October 16, 2009 by Sharon

I’ve tried to remain open-minded about the true birthplace of our nation’s 44th president, but it’s impossible to sit comfortably ‘on the fence’, when online, archived articles undergo sudden revision.

Case in point, an article from January, 2006 that appeared in the Honolulu Advertiser’s online version. Here’s a link to the current version of the article. I happened to read this very article yesterday and made both a printed, pdf version of the article and a screen capture of the now altered section.

So, what’s the deal, huh? Shouldn’t the paper have titled this edited version as an Update with an explanation? If President Obama truly has the original birth certificate, why not just produce it?

American Police Force is Now ‘American Private Police Force’ 2

Posted on October 05, 2009 by Sharon

APPF LogoFor the life of me, I can’t figure out why the insertion of ‘private’ into the company name helps with any potential legal action. If I understand California regulations, it is unlawful to use the word ‘police’ in the name of any private investigative agency.

Note also that the company’s ‘logo’ has changed from the Serbian coat of arms (though it’s still in the Flash movie at the top) to an Eagle. Becky Shay told KULR8 News that the logo change was simply  “the quickest thing he could to diffuse [sic] tension”.  Shay claimed to have no knowledge of any litigation pending from the Serbian consulate.

By the way, today’s the firs time I’ve noticed the music playing in a small Flash window beneath the logo — Ravel’s ‘Bolero’. Interesting.

Surprisingly, the contract between APF (oops, I guess that’s APPF now) and Two Rivers Authority is still on the table, and a town meeting is scheduled for this afternoon (Monday, Oct. 5) at 3:00 pm at Hardin City Hall.

To see the changes for yourself, visit the APPF website.

This video shows Greg Smith, the president of the Two Rivers Authority — he’s the same Greg Smith who was asked to step down three weeks ago with no explanation. Maybe Smith objected to the APF deal.

Shay: Job applicants overwhelmed American Police Force website 1

According to yesterday’s article at the Billings Gazette, APF spokeswoman Becky Shay (who used to work for the Gazette) ‘explained’ why the APF website disappeared for several hours yesterday.

The Web site for American Police Force, the California company working on a contract to fill Hardin’s empty jail, is temporarily down.

Becky Shay, APF’s public relations director, said the Web site,, crashed because it has received more job applications than the server can handle. APF has received at least 2,000 applications, many of which are for jobs at the 464-bed jail in Hardin.

“The surge came after the announcement for Hardin,” she said. “Our Web site is getting 20,000 to 30,000 hits a day, and a lot of those are job applications.”

Somehow, this explanation seems unlikely. Generally, an overwhelmed server simply reports a ‘server busy’ error, or the site simply fails to load. The APF site, however, reverted back to its ‘parked’ position at GoDaddy, as if all content had been removed.

Shay left her job with the Gazette to join the American Police Group as spokeswoman, promising ‘transparency’. However, she refuses to reveal the source of the group’s funding. I’m betting she doesn’t know. Sadly, if this all goes south, Shay may be knocking on the Gazette’s door with a smile and an apology.
