“THIS IS GOING TO BE A HISTORICAL EVENT”
by Sharon Rondeau
(Dec. 11, 2016) — On December 9, “Freedom Friday” host Carl Gallups spoke about an upcoming press conference to be held on Thursday, December 15, at 4:00 p.m. MT to disseminate the final conclusions of the five-year investigation conducted by the Maricopa County Cold Case Posse of the image at whitehouse.gov purported to be Barack Hussein Obama’s long-form birth certificate.
Over the last several years, Gallups has been covering developments in the case on his show, at times interviewing Cold Case Posse lead investigator Michael Zullo.
During his latest broadcast, Gallups stressed that President-Elect Donald Trump had been the first public figure to raise questions about Obama’s origins and constitutional eligibility given that Obama’s “short-form” birth certificate, released on June 12, 2008 online, was termed a forgery by several experts.
Like dozens of other volunteer posses, the Cold Case Posse works as its own entity but as an adjunct to the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO).
Gallups announced that on his December 16 show, his son Brandon, who is often featured on the show, will be hosting his father and Zullo to discuss the information released at the press conference.
The presser will be live-streamed at carlgallups.com and several other sources, including at Gallups’s Facebook page and that of a sister organization, PPSimmons News & Ministry; WND.com, the Center for Western Journalism, and MCSO’s Facebook page.
Early this year, Gallups was deputized by Maricopa County Sheriff Joseph M. Arpaio, who commissioned the posse’s investigation in September 2011.
On April 27, 2011, the “long-form” birth certificate was posted on the White House website but, like the short-form, was quickly denounced as a poor forgery.
On March 1, 2012, Zullo and Arpaio held an initial press conference to announce that they believed probable cause exists that the long-form birth certificate image is a “computer-generated forgery.” They reached the same conclusion as to Obama’s purported Selective Service registration form.
A second press conference was held on July 17 of that year to release more details of the ongoing investigation, after which neither the media nor Congress investigated.
Gallups identified three “summaries” which will be presented during the presser: “executive,” “law enforcement,” and “forensic.”
The event will take place at the MCSO training center located at 2627 S. 35th Avenue, Phoenix, but is open to only individuals specifically invited.
“It’s on, folks; it’s on. This is going to be a historical event,” Gallups said with excitement. He reminded the audience that “Hillary Clinton” first suggested that Obama was born outside of the country, raising questions about his constitutional eligibility.
Article II, Section 1, clause 5 of the Constitution requires the president and commander-in-chief to be a “natural born Citizen.”
Gallups said that links to sites which will live-stream the event will be made available before the conference.
