“IT’S BEEN AN OPEN SECRET”
by Sharon Rondeau
(Aug. 18, 2018) — On August 17, Obama birth certificate lead investigator Mike Zullo was the first guest on Carl Gallups’s “Freedom Friday” to speak about recent reports of internet censorship and the “taking away of security clearances,” as introduced by Gallups.
The show is broadcast every week on WEBY 1330 and by podcast on Gallups’s website.
In his opening statement, Gallups said that Zullo had discovered that the National Security Agency (NSA) was monitoring his communications and “following him closely” and the phenomenon that topics the two discussed on the phone would appear on the news soon afterward.
Gallups characterized the surveillance as that of the “Deep State.” “We know exactly what got in our way and why they were doing it,” Zullo remarked on that note of the birth certificate investigation.
Gallups asked Zullo about the censoring of Infowars host Alex Jones on August 6 on a wide array of social-media platforms and Donald Trump’s revocation of former CIA Director John Brennan’s security clearance announced on Wednesday. Gallups drew a connection among Jones, the “Deep State” and the “birth certificate” investigation Zullo conducted for more than five years. The probe, launched in August 2011 and concluded in December 2016, found in its early stages that the “long-form” birth certificate image posted on the White House website in April 2011 bearing the name “Barack Hussein Obama II” is a “computer-generated forgery.” Also found to be fraudulent was Obama’s purported Selective Service registration form and the former White House occupant’s life narrative.
Jones reported “censorship” beginning against him and others in February 2017.
While many in the legacy media characterized the investigation, commissioned by then-Maricopa County Sheriff Joseph Arpaio, as one focusing on Obama’s birthplace, Zullo concentrated on the origins of the image uploaded to much fanfare on April 27, 2011, followed by a press conference in which Obama described the image as providing “additional information about the site of my birth.”
In response to Gallups, Zullo first addressed Brennan’s loss of his security clearance and Trump’s suggestion that more are coming. “…These players now that are in the national spotlight — John Brennan, James Clapper, Michael Hayden, James Comey — those players were individuals whose names came up to us during the investigation into Obama’s fraudulent birth certificate with information supplied to us by not only a CIA informant,…but other intelligence officials,” Zullo said.
“So to watch this now and see the picture that these people and see what’s exactly happening in our country today, we have a conspiracy; we have a coup to derail, or attempt to derail an election or attempt to, worse, dethrone a sitting president of the United States of America.”
Zullo went on to say that he believes Trump is “putting it all together” after finding that the named individuals “are not to be trusted.”
Zullo pointed out that “at the height of the Cold War,” Brennan voted for a communist for president, which Zullo said makes Brennan “an enemy of capitalism” and of the United States. Zullo questioned how Brennan acquired his security clearance as a result.
“John Brennan is also known as having to lie to the House Intelligence Committee concerning some details about the Clinton campaign funding and the fake Trump dossier,” Zullo said.
He observed that some “Democratic talking heads” have attempted to compare the revocation of Brennan’s clearance to a “free speech” violation, citing a 1988 lawsuit. Zullo opined that had Obama taken the same actions as Trump during his White House tenure, he would not have been faulted.
“We’re seeing elements of the players involved in trying to usurp the presidency of the United States of America,” Zullo concluded.
Gallups recounted for the audience that Zullo had previously said that “all roads will lead back to John Brennan” and that CIA “urls” were detected as having breached Hawaii government and historical records prior to the publication of the “long-form” birth certificate image.
Obama claims a birth in Honolulu on August 4, 1961 at the Kapiolani Medical Center for Women & Children, which has never confirmed it.
Regarding the others on the list of those who may lose their security clearances is former NSA and CIA Director Michael Hayden, who has also been a frequent and harsh Trump critic on Twitter and in television interviews.
Former CIA and NSA contractor Dennis Montgomery, who acted as a confidential informant to Arpaio’s office for a year between 2014 and 2015, revealed that the NSA “mass data-collection” program “Trailblazer” was continued by Hayden after he was directed by the Senate Intelligence Committee to “shut that program down.” “Dennis Montgomery told us he had information, he had proof, that…they never shut it down. Hayden unloaded it to Montgomery when he was operating in Nevada as a contractor for the CIA; all the while he’s leading the Intelligence Committee to believe that it was, in fact, shut down.”
Regarding Clapper, Zullo reminded the listeners that he “lied” to the Senate Intelligence Committee by stating that the intelligence community did not collect Americans’ communications data “wittingly,” which he admitted was the “least untruthful answer” after Edward Snowden revealed the collection of virtually all raw communications data on all Americans.
“There’s actors that have been doing things for years unchecked,” Zullo said.
In closing the segment, Gallups commented that “the Deep State was shutting you down and trying to shut me down, and now you have the explanation for what’s been going on…”
Returning from a break, Gallups reviewed Montgomery’s claims about data collection and Zullo’s claim that “all roads are going to lead to John Brennan” in regard to the birth certificate investigation.
“You’ve had some inside scoop for a long time about this open secret within the intelligence community about something very important,” Gallups said.
Zullo responded that information he has possessed indicates from “top intelligence people” that “it has been an open secret in the intelligence community and DC that Obama could never satisfy the constitutional requirement of being born on American soil.”
Article II, Section 1, clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution requires the president to be a “natural born Citizen.”
He then connected former “intelligence community” leaders including Brennan, Clapper, James Comey, and Hayden “are now embroiled in this soft coup to destroy the presidency of the United States.”
Gallups recalled that the media ridiculed anyone who questioned Obama’s birth or life narrative, coining the term “birthers.”
Regarding Alex Jones, Zullo said he believes his removal from social-media platforms was wrong. “It is uncanny the way that he is able to release information 12 months, 18 months before an event happens,” Zullo said. “A year ago he came out and said they were going to come after free speech, they were going to use these technology companies to do it, they were going to target him. All of that is happening now.”
