I was pretty young when I a read a work of youth fiction in which one of the characters explained to another a spelling memory trick: “There is ‘a rat’ in ‘separate.’” This was the beginning of my life-long attention to the misspelling of that particular word, and why I noticed it tonight in a comment at US Message Board from someone named Steve_McGarrett. The comment, which I will cite below, was mentioned by Dave B. in a comment here.
Mike Zullo has been fully trained by the Maricopa County Sheriffs Office under the powers granted to Sheriff Arpaio by the Arizona Constitution. He is well qualified and has ALL the Maricopa County Sheriffs Office resouces at his disposal, including their attorneys. Also Arpaio opened up a second criminal investigation a year ago appointing two full time detectives from the department. This is why the posse hasnt asked for donations anymore in many months.The second criminal investigation is what has delayed revealing all of the new posses evidence they collected since the second press conference. Once the 2nd investigation wraps they will hold two seperate conferences announcing their findings.
Misspelling “separate” isn’t the only problem with that post, but I thought it might be useful as an indicator as to whether this Steve McGarrett person is actually Mike Zullo, or some other identifiable birther. The misspelling of “separate” seems to be a Steve McGarrett trait, appearing again from him at US Message Board last April here:
That prompted Arpaio to officially open a new second criminal case indirectly seperate from the birth certificate evidence and he appointed two full time seasoned detectives from the Maricopa County Sheriffs Office to pursue criminal leads across the country working with other law enforcement agencies. Zullo stated the press conference in Phoenix will be a international event that will reveal what they’ve uncovered and Zullo stated it will be ‘Universe Shattering’ that will affect the nation. I’ve been monitoring this case for months and I believe they have uncovered hard copy evidence of Obama’s true birth status and that he went to college as a foreigner and the players who all covered it up.
I used the Google search engine, combining various birther keywords with “seperate,” to see what happened. Here is an interesting result from Birther Report from a commenter named Joe Mannix, who is
widely thought to be Mike Zullo:
Mr. Zullo is not a liar. Hawaii had their own seperate code manual prior to becoming a state. Verna K. Lee verified she used those codes. The CCP also has in possession two Hawaiian birth certificates from 1961 that reveal that the term ‘Negro’ was used for black babies instead of the term ‘African’.
Here’s one by Britt Reid last April at City Data (a site where “Joe McGarrett” has also posted):
Good morning ladies and gentlemen, this is Britt Reid of the Surprise TEA Party here in beautiful Sun City West, AZ. Maricopa County Sheriffs Office Cold Case Posse lead investigator Mike Zullo yesterday gave an update on what is going on with their investigation into Obama. It is apparent they are being precise and serious and the ball is fixing to drop on Obama that will shake the nation to its core. They have been working around the clock diligently but what will be revealing is what the seperate new criminal investigation by the Maricopa County Sheriffs Office will produce. Here is the update by patriot Mike Zullo.
“paralegalnm” (Leonard Daneman) had an entry from 2011 over at Apuzzo’s blog:
The Aug-8-1961 registrar date stamp is a completely seperate bit of artwork added in its own layer.
“Michelle” made the error multiple times commenting at the Citizen Wells site:
It has also been brought to our attention Bauer and Pelosi issued 2 seperate sets of Certifications of Nomination-complete language change in one set. No back up documentation provided. The COLB is backed-up by thin air. The way the media reports the issue, they act as if they have seen documentation, which we all know does not exist. They are editorializing when they should be reporting, is someone holding a machine gun to their heads?
Even our own resident birther john got in the act:
It appears that RC did not use “real” date and signature stamps and they essentially were part of the paper. I know that the CCP used a “real” date stamp to make sure that date stamp was seperate independent element and not part of the paper. As for the signature, stamp the neither the CCP or RC had Alvin Onaka’s stamp handy. But in any event, RC’s Onaka signature stamp is only partially lifted where the Obama’s BC, the entire stamp is lifted.
I don’t know that much was discovered in this short investigation. It may well be that similar style and subject matter plus the spelling error leads to a possible association between Steve McGarrett and Britt Reid. And before I close, I should acknowledge that my search found non-birther commenters here who made the same spelling error. 😳
