“LET’S FIND OUT THE TRUTH!”
by Sharon Rondeau
Posted on Wednesday, the petition bears one mission statement: “Sheriff Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse found these to be forged documents. Let’s find out the truth!”
The statement refers to a 5+-year criminal investigation carried out under the authority of then-Maricopa County Sheriff Joseph Arpaio which declared, at three formal press conferences, that the “long-form” birth certificate image posted on the White House website on April 27, 2011 is a “computer-generated forgery.”
Also declared fraudulent at the first press conference on March 1, 2012 was Obama’s purported Selective Service registration form.
Lead investigator Mike Zullo has made dozens of radio appearances in which he has explained his findings as well as developments in placing the evidence gathered into the hands of federal authorities.
Zullo has pointed to former CIA Director John Brennan as a key figure in the presentation to the public of the long-form image which he said was done “with the intent to deceive.”
Gallups, who has remained close to the investigation and hosted the majority of Zullo’s informational interviews, has opined that “the Deep State” is responsible for not only conducting surveillance on the 2016 Trump campaign, but also for the release of the birth certificate image with the apparent intent of convincing the public that Barack Hussein Obama was eligible for the office of president.
In a November interview, Zullo revealed for the first time that to US intelligence officials informed him that it is “an open secret” that Obama was not born in the United States and that according to their understanding, he could not meet the U.S. Constitution’s requirement for the office of “natural born Citizen.”
While left undefined in Article II, Section 1, clause 5 of the Constitution, most Americans understand “natural born Citizen” to mean, at a minimum, “born in the United States.”
In the modern era, particularly over the last ten years, some legal analysts have said that a simple birth in the United States, regardless of the citizenship of the parents, qualifies a person as quote “natural born.” Others disagree, referring to historical texts and statements in the Congressional Record and U.S. Supreme Court cases which affirm that a person born in the United States to citizen parents is doubtless a “natural born Citizen.”
Questions first arose about Obama’s eligibility in 2007, shortly after he declared his candidacy as a first-term U.S. Senator in Springfield, IL, as a number of mainstream reports had declared his birthplace as Kenya or Indonesia and not Hawaii, as Obama has publicly claimed. A number of those articles were later altered to say that he was born in Hawaii.
Two different birth hospitals have also been identified as Obama’s birthplace, although he claims he was born at the Kapiolani for Women & Children rather than the Queen’s Medical Center, both of which are in Honolulu.
In contrast, Zullo has reported that the investigation found that Obama spent no time in the state of Hawaii until at least the age of five.
In 2010, members of Kenya’s parliament declared Obama as having been born in their country, not the United States.
In addition to Obama’s Selective Service registration form being found to be a “hard-copy forgery” by investigators, a printout accompanying the form, released to a number of FOIA requesters beginning in 2009, was released in two different formats. Questions as to why two different records exist have never been addressed by federal authorities, and Obama’s Selective Service System (SSS) director, Lawrence Romo, refused to allow Zullo and Arpaio an opportunity to scrutinize the original registration form or a certified copy thereof.
Brennan has also of late been said to have involved himself in circulating a now-discredited “dossier” compiled by a former British intelligence agent, Christopher Steele, as opposition research on Trump commissioned and paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign and DNC.
Brennan recently denied that he urged that the dossier be included in a briefing for then-President-Elect Trump, instead identifying the FBI as the agency responsible. It is now known that the U.S. State and Justice Departments participated in circulating the dossier in a number of versions, and that Steele leaked portions of it to the press prior to the 2016 election.
The dossier was the mainstay of evidence presented to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) to obtain a series of four surveillance warrants on former Trump campaign advisor Carter Page, who was identified as a Russian agent in the documentation but never charged with a crime.
Information continues to emerge that another informal Trump campaign advisor, George Papadopoulos, was approached by a number of individuals in 2016 with whom he was unacquainted with the purpose of eliciting information about the Trump campaign’s relationship with Russia, if any existed.
The Steele dossier gave way to the FBI’s launching of a counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign, later assumed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller and a team of up to 19 prosecutors. Twenty-two months later, however, Mueller’s report revealed no evidence of “collusion” was found to have occurred between any American, including Trump campaign aides, and the Kremlin to affect the outcome of the 2016 election.
Now an MSNBC commentator, Brennan has been vociferously opposed to Trump’s presidency, policies, statements, tweets, and actions since he has been in the White House and has accused him of “treason.
Zullo has stated on a number of occasions that he believes that “All roads lead to John Brennan.”
In 2008, Brennan headed a private company, The Analysis Corp., whose State-Department-contracted employee was said to have breached Obama’s passport file and “cauterized the records of potentially embarrassing information.”
During the years of the Obama regime, petitions posted at whitehouse.gov were guaranteed action once they reached 100,000 signatures. It is unclear if the Trump administration is adhering to the same policy.
