Obama Birth Certificate Forgery Turns Six

“THERE ARE REPERCUSSIONS FOR THE VIOLATION OF LAW”

by Sharon Rondeau

(Apr. 26, 2017) — Thursday marks the sixth anniversary of the publication of an image said to be a scan of a certified copy of Barack Hussein Obama’s “long-form” birth certificate.

Obama, who ultimately occupied the White House for eight years without any verifiable documentation as to his identity or citizenship, claims a birth in Honolulu, HI on August 4, 1961 to a U.S.-citizen mother and British-citizen father.

On his now-defunct 2008 “FighttheSmears” campaign website, Obama claimed to have been born a dual Kenyan-U.S. citizen, although Kenya was still a British colony until December 1963, when it declared its independence.

The media did not question whether or not a dual citizen met the presidential eligibility criterion of “natural born Citizen” contained in Article II, Section 1, clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution.  Obama’s claimed father never became a U.S. citizen, which raised further concern about his eligibility among many Americans.

In addition to these questions, credible reports existed of Obama’s foreign birth in both Indonesia and Kenya which were quietly altered to say he was born in Hawaii as his presidential campaign went forward.

In May 2012, Breitbart News discovered a promotional pamphlet published by Obama’s then-literary agent stating that he was “born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.”  In April 2007, just two months after he announced his candidacy for the White House, the wording was changed to say that he was born in Hawaii.  Once confronted with the inconsistency which had remained in print for 16 years, literary agent Miriam Goderich claimed it to be the results of a “fact checking error.”

It is generally understood that literary agents do not research and write their clients’ biographies, but rather, that they rely on their clients to provide accurate biographical sketches.

Within hours after the birth certificate image was posted at whitehouse.gov, analysts began to report that it appeared to be contain multiple “layers” which a scan of a paper document would not produce. Several experts declared it definitely fraudulent on television, YouTube broadcasts and live demonstrations.

In August 2011, a petition signed by 242 constituents of Maricopa County Sheriff Joseph Arpaio asked that he launch an investigation into the origins of the image so as to protect the sanctity of their votes in the upcoming 2012 presidential election in which Obama would seek a second term. Arpaio agreed and commissioned his Cold Case Posse to perform an analysis with the expectation that its genuineness would be swiftly verified.

Several days later, lead investigator Mike Zullo informed Arpaio that the image presented numerous problems and could not be considered an authentic representation of a real, paper document. Consequently, Zullo continued the probe and presented his findings at two press conferences prior in 2012 prior to the election.

After first reporting on March 1, 2012 that probable cause was found to believe the image is a “computer-generated forgery,” on July 17, 2012 Zullo revealed that the standard of probable cause had been surmounted, presenting details to support his conclusions.

Surprisingly, neither Congress. the FBI or the media launched its own independent investigation to verify or disprove Zullo’s findings, which include that Obama’s purported Selective Service registration form is also fraudulent.

At a third and final presser held on December 15, 2016, Zullo revealed that two well-known, outside forensic analysts arrived at conclusions very similar to Zullo’s in regard to the forgery of the birth certificate image.

With his claimed father a foreign citizen, were it to be proved that Obama was born in a foreign country, his claim to “natural born” U.S. citizenship would be imperiled, an issue Congress obviously does not wish to contemplate.

“The media won’t even discuss the findings,” Zullo commented last week on a radio show.  Some outlets have misled their reading audience as to the information released by Zullo and Arpaio, which is easily verified.

Members of Congress have since investigated items which have arisen in the young Trump administration, including  whether or not Trump’s first national security advisor, Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, obtained “permission” from the appropriate government entities to give a speech in Russia and whether or not any inappropriate Trump-Russia connections existed to affect the outcome of the 2016 presidential election.

Remaining free of investigation is the forgery of two, and possibly more, government documents bearing the name of the putative President of the United States constituting federal-level felonies.

“You always like to know who did it,” Arpaio said more than two years ago.

The judiciary, too, has overlooked that crimes have likely been committed with the purpose of installing and maintaining Obama in office.

As to Flynn, House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz said, “There are repercussions for the violation of law.”

    Congratulations Ms. Rondeau. Not even Sheriff Arpaio could get the number of signatures correct on the petition that I wrote and handed to Sheriff Arpaio on August 18, 2011. I’m sure that you would agree, accuracy is important. Arpaio has often said that over 250 people approached him asking for an investigation into President Obama’s birth certificate. Truth be known, five of us along with Jerry Corsi, approached Sheriff Arpaio at his office to make the request. Mr. Zullo was not at this meeting. This may be one of the first times that the correct number of signatures, that being 242, was reported accurately. Well done!

    My petition requested that Sheriff Arpaio verify the authenticity of the Obama birth certificate information presented on the White House website, April 27, 2011, as a PDF file. Sheriff Arpaio in his press conferences stated that his sole intent in conducting his investigation was to “clear the president.”

    The hot button items for Sheriff Arpaio in 2012 were illegal immigration and the Obama birth certificate investigation. While it is not clear which hot button caused supporters to contribute nearly $8.4 million to the Arapio reelection campaign war chest in 2012, I’d imagine that the birth certificate investigation was a strong motivator for donations from the conservative base, nationwide.

    There have been 3 formal Arpaio press conferences since the beginning of the investigation on September 15, 2011. One presser on March 1, 2012, one presser on July 17, 2012, and one presser on December 15, 2016. My wife Denise and I arranged an informal press conference, at Sheriff Arpaio’s request, that was held at the “Church on the Green” on March 31, 2012. Over 1,100 people attended the meeting held for Apraio and Zullo. Two of the formal press conferences and the March 31, 2012 informal press conference were held prior to the state of Hawaii’s issuance, on May 22, 2012, of the certified Obama Verification of Birth sent to Arizona Secretary of State, Ken Bennett. (I notice that your article fails to mention this very important document which verified the birth particulars contained on the PDF of Obama’s long form birth certificate as displayed on the internet by the Obama White House.) Even former MCSO Chief Deputy Brian Sands acknowledged that the Verification of Birth was a game changer and there was nowhere for the birth certificate investigation to go from that point on. If Sheriff Arpaio truly wanted to “clear the president” as he had previously stated, the time had arrived for that announcement. However, the Arpaio investigation continued on for another 5 years and 3 months, in spite of what I’m told is prima facie evidence that “cleared the president.”

    It’s not surprising that the media, Congress, or the FBI chose not to take any action when the state of Hawaii provided the official verification of Barack Obama’s birth particulars, in the form of a Verification of Birth utilizing public records. Even President Trump has acknowledged that Barack Obama is a U.S. citizen. (I emailed numerous Hawaii Verifications of Birth to Mr. Trump’s personal email address and to his national campaign headquarters prior to Trump’s announcement.)

    In a recent You-Tube interview, Mr. Zullo mentioned that “[I]n the first two press conferences, we still had an expert. We had Reed Hayes.” Again, the first two official press conferences occurred on March 1, 2012 and on July 17, 2012. From Mr. Reed Hayes’ website one finds the following: “I finally agreed when Michael Zullo of the Maricopa County Arizona Sheriff’s Cold Case Posse contacted me in November 2012, reminding myself that as a handwriting and document examiner, my duty is to allow whatever documentation I’m examining to speak for itself and that I am not an advocate for either side or any party.”

    From this information it becomes apparent that Mr. Hayes was not on board with Mr.Zullo until November 2012, four months after the second press conference in July of 2012. It appears that there is a conflict in the dates and the time frame regarding Mr.Hayes’ formal involvement with the Cold Case Posse.

    In an email conversation with Mr. Hayes on November 25, 2016, I asked Mr. Hayes the following question: “When you did your review for Mr. Zullo, did he ever disclose the existence of the Hawaii Verifications of Birth for Obama issued on May 22, 2012 and May 31, 2012?” Mr. Hayes’ reply: “Not that I recall.”

    A follow up question for Mr. Hayes: “Had you known of the existence of the Verifications prior to doing your review, what weight would you have given prima facie evidence in determining your opinion about the PDF? Would you still have done your review for Mr. Zullo?” Mr. Hayes’ reply: “I would want to review the Hawaii Verifications as well.”

    On December 7, 2016, I met with Maricopa County Prosecuting Attorney, William Montgomery and I asked him if Mr. Zullo or Sheriff Arpaio had ever provided new information since his last review, in 2012, of Arpaio’s and Zullo’s birth certificate investigation “evidence” which Montgomery had called “speculation”. William Montgomery’s reply was: “No.” Apparently, Mr. Zullo never gave Maricopa County Prosecuting Attorney, William Montgomery, the Reed Hayes’ Report, nor any other new information for his review and his legal opinion.

    Without the release of Mr. Hayes’ report by Mr. Zullo, we will never know whether Mr. Hayes actually reviewed the two Hawaii Verifications of Birth issued in May of 2012, and if he did review the Verifications, what were his conclusions that apparently persuaded him to review the PDF for Mr. Zullo? In my opinion, the written Hayes’ Report should have been released on December 15, 2016, to the local and the national mainstream media for review and dissemination to the public. If the Reed Hayes’ Report was truly newsworthy and ground breaking, the complete written report, including the report on the two Verifications of Birth issued in May of 2012, should have been released on December 15, 2016.

    As I recall, Ms. Rondeau posted a remark on her website comments about her having seen the Reed Hayes’ Report. If my recollection is correct, what were Mr. Hayes’ conclusions about the two Hawaii Verifications of Birth that were issued in May of 2012? When will you publish the Hayes’ Report, and the Verification of Birth reports, Ms. Rondeau?

    I would opine that Mr. Hayes, up until November 25, 2016, was most likely, never made aware of the Verifications of Birth issued on May 22, and 31, of 2012. I would also opine that no formal reviews of the two Obama Verifications of Birth were ever conducted by Mr. Hayes.

    We can only speculate whether Mr. Zullo will ever have sufficient confidence to release these reports to the public in their entirety.

    In answer to Sanford West’s question, however the federal five year Statute of Limitations has run out.

    The difference in press coverage can be attributed to the difference in follow through. Congress is investigating Flynn and alleged Russian hacking. There was never a single minute of congressional hearing time devoted to the Obama birth certificate and the Maricopa County Cold Case Posse never turned over any evidence of a crime to a prosecuting attorney. You can bet that if there had been a grand jury investigation for forgery, identity theft, fraud or election fraud the mainstream media, particularly Fox News, would have been all over it.

    Can someone cite the actual law that would be invoked for the case of putting an altered birth certificate on the internet?

    Here’s the real story behind all of the Obama Birth Certificate Malarky. He’s been counter-run since way back when by the GHWB CIA. http://rickahyatt.blogspot.com/2017/03/open-letter-sen-enzi-now-i-remember.html

    The press is all over Spicer for the “non vetting” of Flynn but when Les Kinsolving tried to question Gibbs about Obama’s Birth Certificate, the press corps and Gibbs crucified Kinsolving (Tapper was especially disgusting in his behavior). The press is hanging on to the Russian hacking fabrication as if it were their last story, but they have barely mentioned the only valid investigation into Obama’s forged documents and the mounds of evidence compiled by many on Obama’s falsified “life history”.
    The Press is beyond reprehensible (with few exceptions).
