“WE BELIEVE IT’S GOING TO BE ON THE ISRAELI NEWS”
by Sharon Rondeau
(Jan. 8, 2017) — On Friday evening, Brandon Gallups hosted “Freedom Friday” in place of his father and regular host, Carl Gallups, interviewing Rabbi Zev Porat of Messiah of Israel Ministries during the first half-hour of the show.
Gallups began by briefly recapping the results of a five-year investigation of the long-form birth certificate image posted at whitehouse.gov conducted by former Maricopa County Sheriff Joseph Arpaio and his investigator, Mike Zullo.
In a press conference held shortly after the image was uploaded to the White House website on April 27, 2011, Barack Hussein Obama claimed the image to be representative of his long-form birth certificate allegedly held by the Hawaii Department of Health.
Zullo and Arpaio announced the final revelations at a press conference on December 15, revealing that two forensic analysts from two different disciplines reached the same conclusion: that the image could not be authentic.
The image was posted in apparent response to Donald Trump’s months-long call for Obama to release his detailed birth certificate amid growing doubts that he might not have been born in Hawaii or even the United States, and by extension, might not qualify to serve as president under the U.S. Constitution’s “natural born Citizen” requirement.
At the time, Trump was considering challenging Obama in the 2012 election but ultimately decided not to run. Having run and emerged the victor from the 2016 election, Trump will be sworn in as the 45th President of the United States on Friday, January 20.
After the image was released by the White House, it was almost immediately declared a poor forgery by several graphics professionals.
Arpaio’s 5+-year investigation ensued at the request of 242 constituents, with the media virtually ignoring the conclusions of forgery declared at two 2012 press conferences.
“Do people in Israel even know that the man in the White House might not have been eligible to hold that office…?” Gallups asked Porat during the 7:10 segment. “What is the talk in Israel about the disaster that is the last eight years of Barack Obama?”
Porat responded that Israeli television stations are not broadcasting the birth certificate issue, but that discussion on “the streets of Israel” is ensuing. “People don’t understand how could it be that a fake president has been in the White House for eight years,” he said. “This is inside stuff, that’s for sure, but Barack Obama…is a fake president,” he continued.
However, he believes that “the Gospel is getting out” in exposing it and believes that more exposure will be beneficial. “We’re going to do everything we can to get that information out to Israel more, try to get it on the Israeli news, and we believe that it’s going to be on the Israeli news because the streets are packed with this information that Obama is not only an enemy of Israel, but he is a fake president.”
Gallups characterized Porat’s affirmation as “amazing.” “Just imagine if there was not a Hebrew sitting as prime minister of the nation of Israel,” he mused. “Truly, we have no idea who Barack Obama, Barry Soetoro, whoever he is…we know the only thing he’s told us about himself has been proven to be a lie.”
Gallups then quoted from the Book of Exodus, comparing the relevant passage to the revelation of a “fake president in the United States” which could “potentially advance the Gospel in Israel.” Gallups then expressed the sentiment, ‘Thank you, Lord.'”
Drawing a parallel, Porat responded that “all the evil people are gone” and “Israel still stands today.”
Porat then shifted to the December 15 press conference, invoking Zullo’s name. “We saw the program over and over again,” he said, contending that Israelis are wondering, “How is this person not locked up?” Porat said that in Israel, someone convicted of forgery would be imprisoned “for ten years” regardless of whether or not he were a politician.
Both men expressed their belief that Israel will remain “protected by the God that created Israel, that created the United States…from now until the return of Jesus.”
