“THE ENDS JUSTIFY THE MEANS”
by Sharon Rondeau
(Jun. 22, 2019) — On the June 21 “Freedom Friday” show, Carl Gallups hosted Obama birth certificate investigator Mike Zullo to discuss the “Deep State,” the “Russia” investigation, the “fake” birth certificate said to represent Obama’s original Hawaii birth record posted at whitehouse.gov in April 2011, and “the media behind it all.”
Under the authority of then-Sheriff Joseph Arpaio, in August 2011 Zullo began what became a 5+-year probe into the “long-form” birth certificate image, discovering it to be a “computer-generated forgery” early in the process. Gallups has followed the investigation closely both as a broadcaster and later, as a deputized participant, hosting Zullo frequently to share updates with his audience.
Rather than launching its own investigation into Zullo’s claims of forgery and fraud relating to Obama’s government documents, the mainstream media ridiculed the messengers, a technique it continues to use whenever the topic of the Obama “birth certificate” arises.
In an April broadcast, Zullo said that during the course of the investigation, he acquired evidence that there was “collusion” between media executives and the Obama White House to avoid the subject altogether. Zullo has described the birth certificate forgery as “the foundational lie” of Obama’s “presidency.”
Of late Gallups has spoken extensively about the “Deep State,” which refers to entrenched, unelected bureaucrats in federal agencies such as the U.S. intelligence community, Justice Department and its subsidiary, the FBI.
For the last two years, but particularly since Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report was made public in April, evidence has emerged showing that the premise upon which Mueller’s $35 million project was based — that someone within the Trump campaign engaged in “collusion” or conspiracy with the Kremlin — was false and represented a colossal effort to remove Donald Trump from office.
Mueller assumed the probe from the FBI on May 17, 2017, eight days after then-FBI Director James Comey was fired. Trump immediately objected, citing an interview he conducted of Mueller to possibly replace Comey on May 16 of that year as well as a private business transaction between the two that soured.
Despite an extraordinary array of Democrat-supportive prosecutors, Mueller’s team failed to find sufficient evidence that anyone within the Trump campaign had engaged in improper communications with Russians to affect the outcome of the election. On the claim of “obstruction of justice” which apparently stemmed from a separate investigation launched by former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, Mueller said he could neither construct a charge nor “exonerate” Trump.
Rumors of the campaign’s alleged connections to Russia began to leak to the press in September 2016 as exemplified by a story by Yahoo! News’s Michael Isikoff. In his article, Isikoff claimed that the FBI was investigating private businessman and informal Trump campaign advisor Carter Page for possible ties to the Kremlin.
The following month, unknown to the American public, Comey signed an affidavit to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) requesting a surveillance warrant on Page based on the claim that he was “an agent of a foreign power,” namely, the Russian government. The affidavit was based on an unverified “dossier” compiled by British citizen Christopher Steele at the indirect request of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Hillary Clinton campaign.
The application also included Isikoff’s article for which Steele was the source. a technique known as “circular reporting.”
Although Page was under surveillance for nearly a year, he was never charged with a crime.
Trump’s new attorney general, William Barr, has resolved to discover how and why the Russia investigation was launched within FBI headquarters given the results of Mueller’s investigation.
“Now that we have the Mueller report and the Steele dossier and a FISA court being lied to by government law enforcement…why can people not believe that the Obama administration took a day or two to make a fake birth certificate to make that issue go away?” Gallups asked Zullo at 12:33.
“Just think about it: these people are brazen enough to try to take down a sitting United States president for no other reason than they didn’t like the outcome of an election, and to them a birth certificate is nothing more than a piece of paper,” Zullo responded. “It has no significance. Their ideology says, basically, that anyone is a citizen of anywhere and anyone can be president of the United States; actually factually incorrect, but that’s their mindset and that’s what they believe, and for them, the ends justify the means.”
