Somebody call the cops!

But, but, but I am the cops

Police car and text: "Come out with your hands up"In a bizarre story that has been floating around and now appears with details at the Phoenix New Times, the police were called to force Maricopa County Cold Case Posse leader Mike Zullo to leave a Hawaii assisted living facility where aging Hawaiian vital records registrar Verna K. Lee resides. Lee signed Barack Obama’s birth certificate back in 1961. Read the narrative at Phoenix New Times.

Zullo’s credibility is in tatters after his squalid press conference back on the 17th of July left anti-birthers with a cornucopia of evidence to expose the dishonesty of the Posse, including outright lies and fabrication of evidence.

Zullo dragged Verna Lee into the story by naming her as a consultant to the Posse (the 95-year old Lee actually contributed nothing much of note) to give it a veneer of respectability. This is where he presented a fake “1961 vital statistics instruction manual” to show internal inconsistencies in Obama’s certificate. Only it was quickly discovered that his images came from a totally different 1968 and 1969 manuals, and a certificate published by WorldNetDaily disproves the code table they presented as well as disproving the certificate numbering theory they presented as fact.

Zullo is no doubt desperate to salvage his discredited reputation by interrogating Lee and persuading her to say something that would help him wiggle out from under the pile of lies he’s buried himself in.

Birthers say, of course, that somebody “got to Lee” and that’s why she refused to see Mike Zullo: classic conspiracy thinking.

    Of course, one must recall that Corsi and Zullo claimed in the July press conference that they had a lengthy phone conversation with Lee, and gave a number of “quotes” from her. When their manual was found out to be fake and one of their numbering theories debunked, they suddenly released more “quotes” from Ms. Lee that they left out the first time that conveniently backed up every word they said.

    Despite claiming that the entire conversation was recorded and they would release said recordings “soon”, they haven’t done so.

    My assumption is that in their first trip to Hawaii, they tried to meet with her and failed, then fabricated the story of speaking to her out of whole cloth (hence the lack of recording), and now failed a second time, and are using the unverified “fact” of the phone conversation to insinuate that she USED to be willing to talk to them.

    Go ahead, Zullo. Release the tapes!

    Very interesting account. It appears the Hawaii DOH probably coerced Verna Lee into not cooperating anymore. Zullo is getting too close. They know Verna Lee has knowledge that will expose the giant cover up being orchestrated at the DOH. The Hawaii DOH must take any and all steps to protect itself from criminal prosecution.

    ATTENTION BIRTHERS!!!!
    MIKE ZULLO of the Maricopa Sheriff’s Office of Joe Arpaio in Arizona will be speaking at the Tri-County Tea Party in Lady Lake, Florida on Monday September 24, 2012 at 6:30 P.M. Mike Zullo will be presenting new information that has been obtained about President Barack Obama. All birthers should attend. Information and directions to the Tri-County Tea Party can be found at the following link:

    It looks like Mike Zullo will be at my Tea Party. I can’t wait to meet him.

    I posted this over at the Fogbw around this cack of poos nonsense…..

    Just checking in from a land of Commie-Pinko-Socialised medicine…

    Haven’t seen this one posted anywhere, could be wrong….

    Seems that Zullo has made ANOTHER and this time sneaky-beaky visit to Hawai’i to harass and BS.

    Reported from Freeperville and the audio from “The Tea Power Power Hour”

    http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/2928780/posts

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bctLgTFC6Yg

    Usual BS, he had “security concerns”, takes great affront when the assisted living staff where Verna Lee lives said they didn’t believe his “credentials” were real….

    BS’s again that he is a “real legal” investigator

    Turns out that both he and Jerome are lower than whale poo in the regard of the Hawai’i PD, then wonders, when he is “staking out” the assisted living facility that he regarded as a stalker.

    Gets pissy that Verna had no intention of talking to him and pointed him to the HDoH for any questions…It’s a PLOT ’cause someone got to her….”It’s A LIBERAL PLACE and they were protecting their own”

    More nasty poking around Virginia Sunahara and usual BS around how her BC number is different than the Presidents but mentions then sweeps over how the Nordkyes are NEXT to the Presdients but they’re OK…..

    More nonsense sturm und drang etc…..

    Classic cretin moment where Gillars states as fact that for a BC seems that after 50 years it has no “probative value” and you have to go to “corrobarating documents” from hospitals and stuff…Oh and Krack-Head Kretin Kop agrees with him of course.

    Listening to Zullo, according to him he got access to the hospital records and medical records and made copies of the Sunahara BC and others……I smell a lying sack of cack or a criminal act….or both of course.

    The fact that Zullo and Corsi were all told to F’off you can’t enter the vaults and paw through records, this is PROOF that the documents don’t exist.

    The Mighty Legal Mind of Gillar states with confidence and certainty that the HDoH has no legal standing to prevent the Klown Kar Posse from rummaging at will.

    Arpaio is still execting someone to “run with this”, kinda hard as he hasn’t submitted it to well a legal office…..

    Seems Arpaio “Will do something after the election”

    Usual BS about how its not about the President it’s about FRAUD….

    Usual absence of insane “evidence” proves evidence of absence

    John Boehner is the new Anti-Christ ’cause he’s blocking it and we know ’cause someone told someone who told Zullo that’s the case.

    “I feel like an American with no voice, WE WON’T STOP, THERES A CRIME HERE!!!!!”

    Gillar then goes off the deep end by merging how Savvanah Guthrie took a PICTURE which then became a PDF scan which is the one posted on the WH web server with “stuff on it”….fecking muppet.

    Gillar starts frothing at the mouth about the Selective Service document

    No more pressers promised although “I have to be careful how I say this, we have some very encouraging leads to pursue” But don’t worry we’ll still be releasing information to the public ’cause they deserve it….

    WND gets a quick slap now they issue has been dropped like a hot turd and no more slathering love for the CCCP.

    Shurrif ain’t gonna let go !!!!! ANY…..DAY……NOW…..

    Please…any rumour, speculation, BS, third hand Lame Cherry level drool etc PLEASE CALL THE POSSE.

    You don’t really wonder that, do you? After all, we all know that there is no way that Zullo would ever dare to speak to someone in authority who he knows will provide information proving him wrong. He isn’t investigating, which implies trying to find answers, he is attempting to corroborate, by finding evidence that fits the answers he has already made up. No doubt he hoped to ask the 95 year old Ms. Lee leading questions about events and practices from 50 years ago, so that he could say that her answers confirmed his claims.

    I also wonder if, perhaps, Ms. Lee has family that the facility contacted while Zullo was waiting in his car, and they gave instructions to keep the creep away.

    It looks like John probably lives in The Villages, one of the whitest and most conservative senior citizen communities in the country. The developer who built the Villages, billionaire H. Gary Morse, has (with his wife) donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to a PAC which supports Romney.

    http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-06-20/florida-retirement-home-builder-among-donors-to-romney-super-pac.html

    The Villages is not a friendly place to those with dissenting opinions, so Zullo should feel right at home.

    But an actual detective in any real and meaningful sense of the profession – NO. Not in the slightest.

    He’s nothing but a two-bit used car salesman play acting at being detective, nothing more.

    Now, if they really wanted information from Ms. Lee, they could go to the Prosecuting Attorney, have them go to the judge and ask them to convene a grand jury. From there, the prosecutor can actually subpoena her (and work with Hawaii) to have her testify about what she knows.
