THE POST & EMAIL INTERVIEWS MIKE ZULLO ON NEWEST REVELATIONS
by Sharon Rondeau
Virtually unknown in the United States prior to the election of Donald J. Trump last year, the term “Deep State” has now been invoked by some newscasters, journalists and commentators as well as by Trump himself through his Twitter account. Left-leaning news outlets reluctantly discussed it beginning in early March, after Trump claimed on Twitter that he and his campaign aides had been “wiretapped” during the final months of the presidential campaign.
On March 9, 2017, Politico Magazine declared, “The Deep State Is a Figment of Steve Bannon’s Imagination,” referring to then-White House Senior Adviser Steve Bannon, now Editor-in-Chief at Breitbart News.
The article begins, featuring a photo of Bannon:
Here’s a handy rule for assessing the credibility of what you’re reading about national security in the Trump era: If somebody uses the term “Deep State,” you can be pretty sure they have no idea what they’re talking about.
The phrase’s appeal is undeniable. The notion of a shadowy network pulling the strings in Washington is an attractive one to an embattled White House and its political opponents, shorthand-employing commentators and conspiracy theorists alike. But uncritical use of this canard is lazy at best and counterproductive at worst. The term, which political scientists invented to refer to the networks of generals and spymasters that rule many authoritarian states around the world, has migrated from leftist critics of U.S. foreign policy to the alt-right advisers running the White House. As a card-carrying former member of America’s vast national security bureaucracy, I find it offensive. But I also find it offensive as an analyst, because it’s a deeply misleading way to understand how the U.S. government really works.
The term has additionally earned its own Wikipedia entry.
On March 20, The New Yorker wrote that “There Is No Deep State. The problem in Washington is not a conspiracy against the President; it’s the President himself.”
In September, Politico writer Michael Crowley appeared to give credence to the existence of a “deep state” consisting of a “unaccountable string-pulling bureaucracy.” “Beneath the politics of convenience is the reality that a large segment of the U.S. government really does operate without much transparency or public scrutiny, and has abused its awesome powers in myriad ways,” Crowley wrote, using U.S. military commanders and “national security insiders” as examples of “deep state” influence on sitting presidents.
On Wednesday, political commentator and strategist Dick Morris and his wife, Eileen McGann, published an article titled, “Now the Deep State Has a Name–the Federal Bureau of Investigation.”
The “Deep State” is now suspected by many, including some in Congress without using the term, of having participated in political activity while employed by the federal government to bring about the election of Hillary Rodham Clinton as the 45th president of the United States rather than Trump.
During the presidential transition period and beyond, a plethora of intelligence leaks to The Washington Post and The New York Times signaled what appeared to many Americans to be a concerted effort to undermine the former real estate mogul’s presidency, including the identification of Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn (Ret), Trump’s first national security advisor, a “U.S. person” involved in a call with then-Russian ambassador to the U.S. Sergei Kislyak.
Last Friday, just hours before Zullo’s interview with Gallups, Flynn accepted a plea deal in federal court with the admission that he lied to FBI agents during questioning about his communications with Kislyak.
On Wednesday, John Solomon of The Hill reported that “DeSantis said the person he spoke with said a senior FBI executive made an inappropriate comment suggesting the bureau had a personal motive in investigating Flynn and ruining his career. DeSantis wants the FBI to tell him if the videotape was saved.”
Over the last week, it has come to light that an FBI agent who participated in questioning Flynn was removed in August from Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller’s two-pronged investigation into alleged Russian interference in last year’s election and any “collusion” Trump or his campaign aides may have employed to secure his election.
The agent, Peter Strzok, was relocated to the Human Resources division of the FBI after Mueller discovered approximately 10,000 text messages exchanged between Strzok and his mistress, an FBI attorney, disparaging Trump and supportive of Clinton.
During Wray’s Thursday testimony, at least two Republican members of the House Judiciary Committee suggested that Mueller possessed a much more compelling reason to remove Strzok from his role in the investigation based on Wray’s contention that FBI agents may discuss their political views with others in the agency as long as they do not interfere with their work.
Strzok supervised the investigation into Clinton’s use of a private, unsecured email server while she was Obama’s secretary of state and reportedly changed wording in then-FBI Director James Comey’s report to describe Clinton’s actions as “extremely careless” rather than “grossly negligent,” the latter of which appears in the statute governing handling of classified information and could carry criminal charges.
In a virtual soliloquy during his time to pose questions, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) connected hypothetical dots in which Strzok actively solicited the compilation of the Trump dossier and used it as justification to ask the FISA court to grant a warrant to capture the electronic communications of certain members of the Trump campaign last year.
Earlier on Thursday, Jordan had told Fox News that “an additional special counsel needs to be appointed to look into how a FISA warrant was obtained to look at members of President Trump’s campaign team.”
“There’s gotta be something more,” Jordan said to Wray of Strzok’s removal from the Mueller probe. He then said, “Let’s remember a couple things about the dossier. The Democrat National Committee and the Clinton campaign, which we now know were one and the same, paid the law firm (Perkins Coie), who paid Fusion GPS, who paid Christopher Steele, who then paid Russians to put together a report that we call a ‘dossier’ full of all kinds of fake news, National Enquirer garbage, and it’s been reported that this dossier was all dressed up by the FBI, taken to the FISA court and presented as a legitimate intelligence document that it became the basis for granting a warrant to spy on Americans.”
When Jordan asked to see the FISA application and “who took it there,” Wray responded that “our staffs have been having extensive interaction with both Intelligence Committees on our interaction with the FISA court, and I think that’s the appropriate stetting for those questions.”
As Trump’s new FBI Director, Christopher Wray, was testifying to the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday, Fox News reported that a “top DOJ official” was removed from one of his areas of responsibility as he undergoes investigation on the allegation that he communicated with Fusion GPS, a firm dedicated to conducting political research and definitively connected to the now-infamous “Trump dossier,” the Democratic National Committee (DNC), and the mega-law firm Perkins Coie.
The Post & Email produced a three-part report on Zullo’s interview, while a fourth and final segment during the last seven minutes dealt with the involvement of Perkins Coie in the release of the long-form birth certificate image on April 27, 2011.
Zullo reminded the audience that Perkins Coie attorney Robert Bauer had been Obama’s personal attorney before Obama ascended to the White House, and later, became Obama’s White House counsel. At the time, Bauer’s wife, Anita Dunn, was serving as Acting White House Communications Director.
When Bauer returned to Perkins Coie approximately six weeks after the image was released, Attorney Judith Corley became Obama’s personal attorney. Bauer is now a partner at the law firm, and Corley is retired.
It was Corley who reportedly traveled to Hawaii in late April 2011 to retrieve two certified copies of Obama’s original birth certificate from then-Hawaii Department of Health (HDOH) Director Loretta Fuddy. On the morning of April 27, 2011, prior to the release of the long-form image at whitehouse.gov, Bauer told members of the press in a private meeting that Obama had to obtain a “waiver” of the HDOH policy which releases only the “short-form” birth certificate to requesters. “The short from is a computerized abstract, and that’s the legal birth certificate we requested in 2008 and that Hawaiians are entitled to. Since the mid-1980s, the State Department of Health, for administrative reasons, only provides to people who request their birth certificate the short form. They do not provide the long form,” Bauer said.
During his interview with Gallups, Zullo pointed out that he knows of a number of individuals who requested and received their “long-form” birth certificate from the HDOH within the last decade.
In an interview with The Post & Email on Wednesday evening, Zullo said that the pro-Obama “Deep State” prevented his discoveries about the Obama birth certificate image from undergoing investigation by the FBI or any other federal agency. “We had nowhere to go,” he said.
Zullo said that there is “significance” to a January 24, 2009 letter allegedly sent by the White House under Obama’s signature to Kapiolani Medical Center for Women & Children and the birth certificate forgery. Purportedly written to celebrate the facility’s centennial, WND found that the letter was digitally-reproduced on the hospital’s website without an actual photograph or scan of a paper document.
In the second paragraph, Obama purportedly referred to Kapiolani as “the place of my birth.”
The letter was used to publicize a hospital fundraiser and published in the spring edition of its bulletin, “Inspire.”
On the evening of January 24, 2009, then-U.S. Congressman from Hawaii Neil Abercrombie read the letter to the gathering, although straying from its exact wording. Abercrombie has long claimed to have known Obama’s parents from the time they attended the University of Hawaii at Manoa in the early 1960s as well as Obama when he was an infant.
Abercrombie posted an additional statement on his website, apparently referring to questions which had arisen during the 2008 presidential election cycle about Obama’s birthplace and constitutional eligibility:
Settling the question once and for all, he states that Kapiolani Medical Center for Women & Children “is the place of my birth. Hawaii has always been home to me.”
Early in 2010, Abercrombie resigned from Congress to run for Hawaii governor. After winning election in November, Abercrombie publicly pledged to locate documentation of Obama’s original birth record given that doubts of Obama’s claimed birth in Hawaii continued to swirl among the American electorate.
In late December 2010, Abercrombie told the Honolulu Star Advertiser that he believed that Obama’s birth was “written down” and “exists in the archives,” a puzzling statement given that then-HDOH Director Dr. Chiyome Fukino had said 17 months earlier that she had “seen the original vital records maintained on file by the Hawai‘i State Department of Health verifying Barack Hussein Obama was born in Hawai‘i and is a natural-born American citizen.”
On August 10, 2014, WND reported Abercrombie’s surprise defeat in the Democrat gubernatorial primary, adding that “the authenticity of the letter” purportedly written on January 24, 2009 to Kapiolani “has never been verified by the White House.”
During his interview with The Post & Email, Zullo invoked the far-reaching power of the Deep State, an issue on which we will expand in Part 2.
W Kevin Vicklund,
Fukino never said Obama was born in Hawaii. She never said Obama was a natural born citizen.
What she said was Obama’s “vital statistics are on record in accordance with the law. She never once said what records specifically.
While the birth certificate is probably long since recreated and installed in the documents at Kapiolani in case a court order ever forces its release, so the horse has already left the barn, the records at Columbia that show whether or not Obama applied and received money reserved for foreign students have probably not been tampered with. Were they to be unearthed, that would at the very least implicate Obama in fraud were he to have applied for those funds when he was in fact a US citizen – or call into question whether or not he was a citizen if he supplied evidence to the contrary in order to secure that funding.
I do not think the issue is Obama birth in Hawaii. IMHO I think he was born in Hawaii. I think his backers are using the birth certificate as a distraction. IMHO Obama was taken by his mother to Indonesia where he attended public school. Per Indonesian law cannot attend school unless he is an Indonesian citizen. I think his mother converted him to Indonesian citizenship while he was still a child. Obama can reclaim his US citizenship before adult age. His mother brought him back to the US to live with his grandparents. His entry document should show him claiming back his US citizenship. Problem is he will no longer be considered natural born (even if he is born in Hawaii) but a naturalized citizen. Unfortunately his re entry document was stored on microfiche and roll that should contain it was damaged. The section that contain the document was left on the microfiche machine with the machine lamp on. Over time the lamp will heat up and damage the microfiche. IAW the entry document was destroyed by someone with access to the INS records.
Obama was born in Mombasa Kenya, but his forged US birth certificate was never required to be submitted as evidence in court, so he is probably not legally liable for it.
This is a facsimile of Obama’s real birth certificate:
According to reports, the Bush family voted for Hillary – 2016.
G.W. Bush violated his Constitutional oath by allowing an un-Constitutional presidential candidate to succeed him in the office of the president of the United States of America.
Equally responsible were the Members of Congress (Electoral College).
Certainly, HUSSEIN Obama could not have ‘pulled it off’ alone.
Perkins and Coie sure is trying to be Coie… Robert Bauer-BC lawyer’s relative according to been verified- works there too but changed his name to Baur by one letter-report does show Bauer as well. Donald Baur is in charge of the natural resource law area-can you say Uranium One deal? https://www.perkinscoie.com/en/professionals/donald-baur.html. They both sure are deep state. Check our the patriarch…https://www.washingtonpost.com/archive/local/2003/10/02/robert-albert-bauer/fc573bec-3e8e-4cb5-a6f5-c7ecd516e90a/?utm_term=.9635d67291bf
P.S. Zullo didn’t give us a specific time stamp of when Hawaii birth records were “hacked”
but knowing this we might be able to pin-point the construction of the fake production / release
of the short and long form BC?
Since that first short form BC of Obama’s that was posted,I thought it was odd that the
serial number was “blacked out”. Of course, to have had to put a fabricated number or
some number from another BC it would have had been easier to expose the fraud. Thanks to Zullo’s recent radio show with Carl Gullups, in revealing that Hawaii’s birth records were
hacked several time and his knowledge of Perkins & Coie’s role things are making sense
out of nonsense and the deep state deception.
W. Kevin Vicklund remarks are “spot on”.
To borrow a phrase from ESPN- COME ON, MAN!
“Barack Hussein Obama” (true legal name Barry Soetoro and last known citizenship Indonesian), according to his bio in 1991, was born in the foreign country of Kenya (which bio remained intact and undisputed for over sixteen years until 2007, when he and his handlers decided that the time was right for him to UNCONSTITUTIONALLY RUN FOR AND STEAL THE US PRESIDENCY).
END OF STORY! Want more proof of “Obama’s” usurpation of the American presidency? Access the below PROOF-
Tom Arnold. If that’s not enough, I have tons more of circumstantial and hard evidence of “Obama’s” TREASON. Anyone care to see it?
incidentally, here is my cinema verite compilation of the benghazi affair. it’s not a slick production but the sound and all of the parts are there. watch stephanie cutter try to alinsky and hoodwink brett baier with the “in your face fake indignation” (how dare you attack) this on the night of the vice presidential debate).
“we didn’t find out till weeks later that it was a terrorist attack”. couple that with hillary emailing chelsea, THAT NIGHT, that it wasn’t a terrorist attack.
david letterman putting words into the President’s mouth…watch paul ryan’s double take when jokin joe biden (the war on groping) said they “weren’t informed” they needed more help. ask any F16 pilot in the US military if they could have helped out on that horrible horrible night… all very sickening.
obama and hillary, you hacks, you are/were each unfit for command, leading from the rear, or anywhere else.
cheers, scott e.
great work as always Sharon. this is heating up again. i posted this earlier today (link below), it was instantly relegated to their trivialised psycho zone forum category.
that’s my swansong at u.s. messageboard. no more posts, threads or donations from me for that board. the obots won control, same goes for Politics Forum, where kevin davidson, frank arduini and other lesser lights were encouraged to freely practice/promulgate their alinsky, and the seemingly endless protection of the executive branch debauchery called obama.
i outed frank arduini at political forum (aka wong kim ark), so he posted my private phone number taken from orly’s website. “historian dude” (and the other fifteen aliases he has), is one of the smartest people i’ve ever encountered. he’s a west point graduate, left the service as a captain. i respect his service to our country and i’ve told him so. it’s too bad he wasted that great brain and talent trying to save obama. jerry corsi asked me if he was “a pitbull” while he was writing a follow up piece by jack minor. kevin davidson is probably a nice old man, but unfortunately in the obot world, he’s the dim bulb and resident bottomfeeder. he has the same eight people agree with everything he says, and he encouraged loyal followers on his formally dismal “website”.
john woodman and savanah guthrie are the unknowing shills in their pathetic obot army of ridicule and race baiting (dan pfeiffer, bob bauer.)
axelrod, jarret, emanual, gibbs (sweaty mcghee) are the architects of America’s greatest scandal. crackpot nancy pelosi and filthy harry reid are complicit.
Warren G. Harding will be the happiest spirit in American Presidential history, soon he will be in second place.
i called then director mueller’s office three times about the forgery (2011), they hung up on me three times.
cheers and thanks Sharon, you are a true beacon of truth in your steadfast resolve, and i’m always been inspired by your contributions, please keep up the wonderful work. in historical context, time is on our side, and the obots know it.
much much more coming soon.
very highest regards, scott e. WashingtonAmerica.Com
USURPING & CONSPIRING Who will be NEXT?
You can be sure Barack Obama & Hillary Clinton are watching closely as post defacto evidence emerges from the Deep State and Hillary’s charge to Brazille “Fix this or we’ll all hang from nooses” becomes a living nightmare.
Obama with a Fraudulent ID hood winking the U.S. Constitution’s Qualification and H Clinton taking the cue to usurp the Secretary of State Office with her own personally set up Email System for the Office unbeholden to the People.
USURPING & CONSPIRING Who will be NEXT?

It is a puzzling statement only because it didn’t happen in “late December, 2010”, it happened in mid-January, 2011.
Of course there are flight records…or there will be if needed. A pdf.
Many Americans are two faced. They say they want law and order, yet when our law enforcement community does so they run into the streets and protest. Fortunately this is NOT EVERYBODY!
The same reasoning applies to the Barry Soetoro phony birth certificate. There are still millions who think he was the greatest president ever……….and you most likely know what would freeze over before those meatheads would allow his legacy to be tarnished by telling the truth about him. That is why I believe that until the meatheads begin to live in reality NOTHING will be done to set the record straight.
“In late December 2010, Abercrombie told the Honolulu Star Advertiser that he believed that Obama’s birth was “written down” and “exists in the archives,” a puzzling statement given that then-HDOH Director Dr. Chiyome Fukino had said 17 months earlier that she had “seen the original vital records maintained on file by the Hawai‘i State Department of Health verifying Barack Hussein Obama was born in Hawai‘i and is a natural-born American citizen.””
How is this a puzzling statement?
Figure it out.
There has to be flight records for the Perkins & Coie trip to Hawaii to pick up the “electronic PDF files”…I bet you will never find one. Why fly to Hawaii for computer file?
“full of all kinds of fake news, National Enquirer garbage,”
Looks like a libel suit to me….
