THE SAME PLACE AS THE OBAMA BIRTH CERTIFICATE
by Sharon Rondeau
(Feb. 7, 2018) — A four-page search by this writer on Wednesday morning for mainstream media coverage of the additional text messages released exclusively to Fox News appearing to indicate Barack Hussein Obama’s involvement in what could be a conspiracy to keep Donald Trump out of the Oval Office yields nothing.
Neither ABC, NBC, MSNBC, CBS News, CNN, The Washington Post, the New York Times, nor USA Today has issued an article concerning the exchange of text messages between FBI Special Agent for Counterintelligence Peter Strzok and FBI attorney Lisa Page in 2016 showing not only an anti-Trump bias, but also stating, “potus wants to know everything were doing.”
Using that exact phrase plus the terms “Page” and “Strzok” in an internet search leads to results only by Fox, CNS News, The Washington Examiner, Hotair.com, and Breitbart, but nothing from the mainstream media.
According to Fox, the text messages were released by U.S. Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) along with a report compiled by the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee about former presidential candidate and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private, non-governmental email server while she was Obama Secretary of State between 2009 and early 2013. The report is titled, “The Clinton Email Scandal and the FBI’s Investigation of It.”

Prior to press time, “Strzok” was trending in fifth place on Twitter with more than 43,000 tweets, but as of 9:35 a.m. EST, it has fallen to sixth place and reflects “3,127 tweets.”
However, the two new hashtags of “Lisa Page” and #ObamagateSpyingScandal” are now trending.
At approximately the halfway point on the FNC “Hannity” show on Tuesday night, host Sean Hannity declared that “The media betrayed the American people” relating to the matter of the Trump/Russia “dossier” used by senior FBI and DOJ officials to apply for surveillance warrants on at least one Trump campaign associate in the months leading up to the presidential election.
The content of the dossier, assembled by former British spy Christopher Steele, was unverified, a fact not divulged to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC). Its political origins were also not fully disclosed, according to House Permanent Subcommittee on Intelligence (HPSCI) Chairman Devin Nunes and ranking member Adam Schiff.
The DOJ Inspector General, Michel Horowitz, has been investigating reports of political influence and bias within the agency and its subsidiary, the FBI, for more than a year, and reportedly discovered text messages between Strzok and Page which led to Strzok’s reassignment from the Special Counsel “Russian collusion” investigation to the FBI’s Human Resources Department.
Page was also reportedly removed from the investigation, although her reassignment may have preceded Strzok’s. Both remain at the FBI, whose salaries and all others are paid by the American people through federal income taxes.
Trump has continued to deny all allegations of “collusion” with Russia, and the former campaign aide who was surveilled, Carter Page, has not been charged with any crime. Last fall, Page sued The Huffington Post and Yahoo! News for issuing articles claiming that “he was under investigation for meeting Russian officials who meddled in the election.”
On March 4, 2017, Trump tweeted that his campaign had been “wiretapped,” which caused an uproar and backlash from the “legacy” media but did not spark an investigation into why Trump would have publicly made the claim.
The media’s “betrayal of the American people” arguably began many years ago but was evidenced most egregiously after an image purported to be Obama’s “long-form” birth certificate from the state of Hawaii was declared a forgery by experts. Rather than investigating the claims, the media virtually ignored them and went as far as to ridicule and marginalize anyone questioning anything about Obama’s life narrative.
CNN has been prominent in defending Obama’s “born in Hawaii” claim, including producing a two-part series just prior to the release of the long-form image relying on an unsubstantiated image from by Factcheck.org. The second part of the series, showing unidentified microfilm which could have been deceptively included, was inexplicably removed from CNN’s website years ago.
Just after the long-form birth certificate image was released on the White House website on the morning of April 27, 2011, Obama gave a brief press conference in which he claimed it provided “additional information today about the site of my birth.” The image purported that Obama was born at what was then the Kapiolani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital.
However, the now-Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children has never confirmed Obama’s birth there. Moreover, a 5+-year criminal investigation into the image revealed that in 2008, administrators from all of the hospitals in Hawaii held meetings and ordered searches of their records to determine whether or not Barack Obama’s alleged mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, was ever a patient in their respective facilities based on Obama’s own claim of a birth in Hawaii.
According to former New Jersey detective Mike Zullo, who conducted the lengthy probe, administrators could find no record of Dunham’s ever having been a patient at any Hawaii hospital, much less a record of birth for “Barack Hussein Obama II.”
After approximately six months of investigation, Zullo revealed at what would be the first of three press conferences that the long-form image is a “computer-generated forgery.” Also found to be fraudulent was Obama’s purported Selective Service registration form, which had been sent to a number of citizens who submitted requests for the documentation under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).
Rather than investigating Zullo’s conclusions, the media turned a blind eye or misreported that the probe’s focus was on Obama’s birthplace. That misrepresentation has been carried forth to this day.
In a January 19, 2018 interview with “Freedom Friday” host Carl Gallups about the now-completed investigation, Zullo said that “all roads lead back to Obama, and when it starts going that way, it’s just a matter of time before they get to this big question that’s been burning: “What about that birth certificate?”
