“NOT TO TALK ABOUT THE BIRTH CERTIFICATE”
by Sharon Rondeau
The podcast is here, with Gallups introducing Zullo at the 45:00 mark.
Prior to Zullo’s appearance, producer and guest Mike Shoesmith read from an article published at The Post & Email Wednesday theorizing that the mainstream media “colluded” with the Obama regime to obscure the creation of a “long-form” birth certificate image to satisfy Americans that Obama was eligible to serve as president. The image was posted at whitehouse.gov on April 27, 2011 to much media fanfare but few questions, and Zullo has said its release was accomplished “with the intent to deceive.”
Obama has claimed he was born in Honolulu, HI on August 4, 1961, but earlier mainstream reporting told a different story. Conflicting details reported by The Washington Post, the AP and other outlets about Obama’s life have never been reconciled.
Also reported in our article was investigative journalist John Solomon’s claim on “Hannity” that evening that the Trump-Russia “collusion” investigation was launched in early January 2016 “in the White House” under Barack Obama rather than on July 31, 2016, as the FBI has publicly claimed.
Relating to current events reported by FNC’s Sean Hannity in which “Deep State” operatives in the FBI, DOJ, State Department, and Congress conspired to circulate the unverified “dossier” to harm Donald Trump’s campaign, impact the election, and thwart Trump’s eventual presidency, Gallups said that Zullo and then-Sheriff Joseph Arpaio, who authorized the birth certificate probe in August 2011, discovered the existence of what is now known as the “Deep State.”
At the time, the term “Deep State” was not invoked. Zullo stated in subsequent interviews that he and Arpaio were stunned after they revealed at a March 1, 2012 press conference that the investigation showed probable cause to believe the birth certificate image to be a “computer-generated forgery” and neither the media nor federal law-enforcement showed any curiosity.
Against the backdrop of recently-revealed “Deep State” capabilities in the form of surveillance of American citizens and what Gallups described as an “attempt at a coup,” Gallups recounted to producer/guest mike Shoesmith Zullo and Arpaio’s discovery that in early 2011 the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) breached Hawaii government computers, including those at the Hawaii Department of Health (HDOH), in a trail from Hawaii to Jakarta, Indonesia and back to Washington, DC.
The data showing the breaches was supplied by former NSA and CIA contractor Dennis Montgomery, who himself has been a victim of government overreach, according to a federal judge. Moreover, evidence he presented to the FBI in 2015 of extensive and warrantless government surveillance of Americans was “deep-sixxed,” according to Zullo, by then-FBI General Counsel James Baker, a top assistant to then-FBI Director James Comey.
In a closed-door congressional interview last fall, Baker admitted to having received the information but did not say what he did with it.
Gallups said that the “Deep State” activity and “entanglements” which Americans have now witnessed as a result of the Trump-Russia “collusion” probe, concluded March 22 by Special Counsel Robert Mueller with no findings of “collusion,” were observed by Arpaio and Zullo during the course of the birth-certificate investigation.
Arpaio also believes he was prosecuted criminally by the Obama Justice Department because of the birth-certificate probe, Gallups reported. Convicted without a jury of contempt of court as a result of a civil-rights lawsuit and facing sentencing in October 2017, Trump issued the first pardon of his administration to Arpaio in late August that year.
“It all ties to the birth certificate; you’re going to find out,” Gallups told his audience.
Gallups brought in Zullo at the 46:19 mark. “Over two years of this Deep State attempt at a coup using the Mueller investigation…now you and I knew years ago there was a coup going on…” Gallups opened the discussion.
Zullo confirmed that at one point, he had made a call to Gallups “on the panic side” after making what he believed to be a significant discovery. He went on to describe an incident whereby a substitute host for The Rush Limbaugh Show related that his producer forbade him from discussing the Obama birth certificate issue following either the first (March 1, 2012) or second (July 17, 2012) press conference in which Zullo divulged details solidifying his finding that the long-form image is fraudulent.
“Basically, the producer of that show came to that fill-in guest [sic] and told him in no way was he going to do that,” Zullo recalled. After the guest host “pushed back,” Zullo said, the producer, according to the guest host, said, “If you do anything on that birth certificate, you will never work in this industry again.”
“He related this to me firsthand,” Zullo said, adding that he promised the individual permanent anonymity.
Zullo then recalled that after the first presser, he himself was scheduled to appear on Sean Hannity’s radio show and with Lawrence O’Donnell of MSNBC, but “once they found out, or watched, and realized where we were going, they killed it.”
“What I came to understand was — and I used to say on your show — there’s a media blackout. Nobody wants to cover this; nobody wants to talk about it.”
Zullo referred to a book published last year by Obama Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer who Zullo said “actually boasts of the media blackout surrounding the [birth certificate] issue.”
“And what does that tell you?” Zullo continued. “It was Fox News; it was MSNBC; it was everything across the gambit that an order had to come down somewhere: collusion with media executives not to talk about the birth certificate. That’s bone-chilling.”
He then made another significant statement: “We’ve also come to learn and understand from media executives that there actually are CIA employees embedded in media newsrooms. They’re not supposed to be doing that. The CIA’s charter is not to work inside the confines of the United States of America. They’re supposed to work outside, abroad.”
A number of public reports identify “Operation Mockingbird” as a CIA effort dating back to 1948, in which journalists, including student writers, were recruited — and at times, reportedly intimidated — into producing articles containing CIA-directed material. Frank Wisner, then the director of the Office of Special Projects, which eventually became the CIA’s counterintelligence division, reportedly was “also able to restrict newspapers from reporting about certain events.”
