(Apr. 27, 2011) — Eight years ago this morning, an image was uploaded to the White House website said to be a scan of a certified copy of the “long-form” birth certificate of then-White-House-occupant Barack Hussein Obama demonstrating that he was born at the Kapiolani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital in Honolulu, HI on August 4, 1961.

Within the ensuing hours, days and weeks, credible individuals  reported that the image was a poorly-crafted forgery, which eventually led to the opening of a 5+-year criminal investigation by the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO).

In August 2011, then-Maricopa county Sheriff Joseph Arpaio delegated to his “Cold Case Posse” the task of examining the image with the expectation of quickly “clearing the president” of any suspicion. Contrary to what Arpaio expected, however, CCP lead investigator and former detective Mike Zullo was compelled to tell Arpaio several days later that the image could not be cleared as genuine.

After continuing the probe, Arpaio and Zullo conducted a March 1, 2012 press conference during which they revealed that the posse had found probable cause to believe the image to be a “computer-generated forgery.” Also found fraudulent was Obama’s purported Selective Service registration form.

Oddly, neither the FBI, Justice Department, Congress, nor members of the media launched an investigation into the findings.

Several months later, on July 17, 2012, Zullo and Arpaio held a second presser during which they announced that the standard of probable cause with respect to the birth certificate was surpassed by additional evidence.

The day afterward, this publication contacted the FBI and, after reaching a spokesperson, was told that if members of the public believed a crime had been committed regarding the birth certificate image, they should “contact their congressman” as opposed to reporting it to the FBI.  When we asked the spokesman if he were aware of the Arpaio press conference, he acknowledged having watched it in its entirety.

Additional updates in the birth certificate probe were delayed as a result of an ancillary investigation Arpaio launched after former NSA/CIA contractor Dennis Montgomery approached him in late 2013 claiming to have evidence that the bank accounts of approximately 150,000 Maricopa County residents were breached by a government agency. Montgomery also said widespread spying on American citizens without a warrant had taken place, including residents of the county.

Concerned for his constituents, Arpaio hired Montgomery as a confidential informant for approximately a year, during which time Montgomery reportedly worked to assemble the approximately 600 million records he said he possessed. Although Arpaio said during testimony in a civil court case in 2015 that Montgomery’s project produced “junk,” Zullo, who supervised the endeavor, later said that Montgomery provided “accurate” information about the alleged identity theft.

Government surveillance of journalists during the Obama years was noted by the Associated Press in 2013 and by former CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson beginning in 2011. Attkisson continues to battle the U.S. Justice Department for restitution after numerous forensic analysts found that her work and personal computers were breached, classified information planted in her computer without her knowledge, and intrusions committed upon electronic devices used by her family.

Attkisson had been researching the Fast & Furious gunrunning scandal which took the life of U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry in Colorado in 2010. As part of a detailed update on her case against the government, Attkisson wrote on April 7, in part:

On September 21, 2010 executives with Stratfor, a global intelligence firm doing business with government agencies, emailed internally about an alleged Obama administration initiative to target journalists. One email was titled: “Obama leak investigations.” The email stated: “Brennan is behind the witch hunts of investigative journalists learning information from inside the beltway sources…(t)here is a specific tasker from the [White House] to go after anyone printing materials negative to the Obama agenda (oh my.) Even the FBI is shocked.”

Zullo has said in a number of interviews that Montgomery showed him evidence that his and Arpaio’s personal information was collected by the government and reportedly extended to prominent businessmen, including Donald Trump and some of his employees and family members; 156 federal judges, including U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts and Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg; controversial media figures such as Alex Jones of Infowars; and an outspoken former federal prosecutor who prevailed in a 2013 case against the NSA, Larry Klayman.

On December 29, 2015, The Wall Street Journal reported that the NSA not only gathered the conversations of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, but also those of members of Congress and “Jewish-American organizations” during discussions about Obama’s proposed Iran “nuclear deal.”

In 2015, Klayman came to represent Montgomery through Zullo’s efforts, which included their arranging for Montgomery to testify to U.S. District Court Judge Royce C. Lamberth in Washington, DC about the information he said he possessed. Following that, Montgomery was given production and testimonial immunity by the Justice Department for two interviews with FBI agents in late 2015.

He who makes an attempt to enslave me, thereby puts himself into a state of war with me.
