“I THOUGHT IT WAS VERY IMPORTANT”
by Sharon Rondeau
(Jul. 19, 2019) — In November 2013, South Carolina resident Nancy Brinkman met with her then-congressman, Mick Mulvaney, regarding evidence compiled from a criminal investigation showing that the “long-form” birth certificate image posted on the White House website in April 2011 is a “computer-generated forgery.”
Mulvaney is now President Trump’s Acting Chief of Staff, having assumed the role after Gen. John Kelly (Ret) left the post at the end of last year. Mulvaney additionally continues to serve as director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB).
Prior to his election to Congress in 2010, where he served until early 2017, Mulvaney served in the South Carolina senate and, before that, the South Carolina House of Representatives.
The birth certificate image was said to represent a certified copy of the original birth record of Barack Hussein Obama II, who claims he was born in Honolulu, HI on August 4, 1961.
The 5+-year investigation was conducted by former detective Mike Zullo under the authority of then-Maricopa County Sheriff Joseph Arpaio between August 2011 and December 2016. While the probe did not focus on Obama’s birthplace, Zullo said in a subsequent radio interview that two seasoned U.S. intelligence officials informed him that it is “an open secret” that Obama was born outside of the United States, placing his eligibility for the office of president in question.
Article II, Section 1, clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution requires that the president and commander-in-chief be a “natural born Citizen.”
Numerous media reports stated that Obama was born in Indonesia or Kenya prior to his first presidential race, with some later altering his birthplace to “Hawaii.”
On March 1, 2012, Zullo announced at a press conference that probable cause had been found to believe the image to be fraudulent. In addition, Zullo declared Obama’s purported Selective Service registration form a forgery.
To the public’s knowledge, neither Congress nor the FBI ever launched an investigation into the findings, and, according to Zullo, media executives “colluded” with the Obama White House to squelch any discussion of Obama’s eligibility or documentation on-air.
As a result of the ongoing investigation, Mike Volin, president of WOBC Radio and owner of the website wheresobamasbirthcertificate.com, produced a “Sheriff’s Kit” consisting of a DVD with the evidence Zullo had released to that point and a sworn affidavit Zullo provided in an Alabama civil case surrounding Obama’s constitutional eligibility.
At their own expense, Volin and a number of other citizens, concerned that crimes were committed in the presentation to the public of fraudulent government documents belonging to a sitting president, made appointments to visit numerous congressional offices to distribute the Sheriff’s Kits and give presentations whenever possible.
Brinkman made contact with Volin and requested the constituent meeting with Mulvaney, which lasted approximately 30 minutes, she told us on Friday. “On November 8, 2013 my husband and I made an appointment with then-SC Rep. Mick Mulvaney to present the Sheriff’s Kit to him. He was always very accessible to his constituents and he was very receptive to us when we presented him with the Sheriff’s Kit. He listened to what we had to say and what the Kit was all about but he gave no indication of how he felt about it. (That is when my husband took the picture that we sent to Mr. Volin.) I have never done anything like that before but thought it was very important to do so.”

There was a staffer in the room who took notes, Brinkman recalled.
On Thursday The Post & Email spoke with Volin, who said that ultimately, he and those accompanying him to Washington in 2013 delivered the kits to approximately 200 members of the U.S. House of Representatives and approximately 35 offices of U.S. senators.
Many Americans downloaded the Sheriff’s Kit from his website, Volin recalled, and either sent the information to their respective congressmen or visited their district offices. “We made sure that people mailed kits to every representative, and when we would go down the hall, we would purposely stop in at an office and say, ‘Hi, this is from Sheriff Joe; it’s a kit that needs to be looked at,’ Volin said. “That’s why I have a huge stack of business cards in my house. We would drop off the Sheriff’s Kits; we went door-to-door like a salesman. Sometimes we’d ask them if they had a couple of minutes, and some of them said, ‘Yes, come on in.’ So if not every member, pretty-close to every member of the House of Representatives has one.”
After Brinkman met with Mulvaney, Volin made an appointment to meet with his chief of staff in Washington, DC, he said. He described Mulvaney’s then-chief of staff as “receptive” and willing to listen to his presentation.
Brinkman plans to meet with her current congressman, Ralph Norman, about the Obama birth certificate issue in the near future, she said, and remains concerned that constitutionally-ineligible candidates may continue to seek the presidency.
Volin has original Sheriff’s Kits remaining, he said, as well as an updated version and a third release he calls an “addendum” featuring the third and final press conference Zullo held on December 15, 2016.
In a new development, Volin told us, he will be meeting with a state representative on the issue in the near future.
