Evading Zullo

I just finished watching the PBS Frontline documentary, “The United States of Secrets.” It covers warrantless NSA wiretapping of Internet traffic and the Edward Snowden leaks. For just a moment I reviewed in my head my own Internet activity and considered whether I should perhaps start using some encryption. The mental review didn’t last very long and I concluded that there wasn’t anything I had that would interest the NSA. There really are only a couple of things in my digital life that I want to keep secret: my financial account information and things that others have shared with me in confidence. In that last category, there is again nothing that the NSA or law enforcement would care about, but I want to keep it private out of respect for the privacy of other people.1

imageWorldNetDaily has a thread that I’ve been commenting on for a few days, and on that thread there are repeated references to the Cold Case Posse investigation of Obama’s birth certificate in Maricopa County, Arizona. Mike Zullo (pictured right) is the only known member of the Posse, so I’ll just refer to him for the rest of the article. I said that I would happily pay for a trip to Arizona for the pleasure of watching Mike Zullo under cross-examination, and the reply was that I might not have a choice about attending, with the implication that I might be a subject of prosecution. One commenter said:

You might be interested to read the transcript of Zullo’s official interrogation of me by phone last year:

Zullo:

The transcript is blank because the event never occurred. Zullo has never so much as even asked me a question in an email. What law enforcement investigation names someone on a radio program (so it’s no secret), but fails to interview them after three years? Apparently Zullo never attempted to contact the White House either. The very fact that Zullo hasn’t questioned me, proves that he’s not doing a real investigation involving me.

Failing to respond to a non-existent request for information is one of the many ways that I evade Mike Zullo.

Another way that I evade Mike Zullo is by not dropping by his house, not that I have any reason to visit Arizona in the first place. While Mike Zullo has no authority to do anything official, he does have a permit to carry a gun, and there are stories of him sometimes being just a bit unstable, [redacted]. Sheriff Arpaio, on the other hand, has some authority and sometimes people in his jail end up dead. No one has come forward to say that Sheriff Joe has obtained or served warrants related to the birth certificate investigation. He said he had “probable cause.” At best, this indicates that Arpaio is not really investigating anything under his jurisdiction.

The primary tool used in the Cold Case Posse investigation appears to be the same tool that I use, reading stuff on the Internet or things others send me. When Mike Zullo said that Foggy was an “Obamacare navigator,” that information didn’t come from law enforcement sources, old fashioned detective work, or an investigation of government records. It came from a comment Foggy made on the Internet that Zullo misunderstood. In our methods of investigation, there is little difference between Zullo and me: we both read the Internet and people send us stuff. The difference is that I am more careful in what I believe, and I don’t go on the radio and smear people with rumors.

The NSA engaged in broad sweeps of data that most people thought was protected by the 4th Amendment. The amateurs (like me and Zullo) also engage in broad sweeps of data, but it’s public data. There is an amazing amount of information in someone’s public digital life when it’s all aggregated. That came home to me in a very creepy way through the doxing I got from Lucas Smith.

I blog very publicly and you can get a good sense of what I think on a variety of issues by reading my personal blog. There’s more “friends and family” material on Facebook, but I don’t share that outside my friends and so far since it went “friends only,” the birthers haven’t gotten anything from there. Google amasses an incredible store of information. The government can get and aggregate even more. Zullo only has a web browser, but reportedly more computer video monitors than I have.

I use a strong password on my blog and emails; I keep my computer antivirus software up to date. I lead a normal life and keep my nose clean. It’s pretty easy to evade Mike Zullo.


1If my emails were ever hacked and made public, the single person who would suffer the most from what was revealed would be Mike Zullo. What birthers would learn is how closely my private conversation and views match my public conversation and views, and of course that there’s no involvement with the White House whatsoever.

    It looks like WND’s comment monitors have deleted most, if not all, of “TruthToBeTold’s” comments that you and others have been responding to. You’d think it would be the other way around — I got banned from WND’s forums a couple years ago after they apparently got tired of me posting facts.

    I noticed that the comment included in my article was inaccessible when I tried to review it. The image in my story was captured from a Disqus email notification.

    I thought that one was deleted because it bordered on libel, as did the response to my comment about Brian Reilly’s articles published on my blog.

    All in all, the birthers came out very bad in those exchanges, losing every point, asserting things they didn’t even try to back up, and flinging poo in desperation.

    And that’s different than what they’ve been doing for the last 6 years how?

    Are you saying that Edward Snowden’s brother Eric is leaking stuff?

    It’s an early mistake that I keep repeating.

    I looked at ttbt’s profile. Every comment to that article is gone.

    Somebody’s had a revelation about just how stupid they actually looked, and deleted the evidence.

    Welcome to Stalinist Birtherstan where investigation and trial are secret and only the execution is public.
    It’s quite a Kafkaesque world (just remember Sven claiming how the rules of evidence no longer apply and by extension any law since Congress+Obama could have changed it in their favour) and definitely not one I’d like to live in.

    I’ll go you one better, Doc. As you probably already know, I’m under “Citizens Arrest” by one “James Smith.” I’ve never seen any documents. But, he/she did post my “arrest” on another news site which shall remain nameless because I now realize it’s considered rude to cross post. Who is James Smith? I don’t know. I do know that one of his statements boiled down to, “I don’t believe you did these things so I’m placing you under citizens arrest.”

    Really?

    Doesn’t that sound just like Mike ZulloMoore, my (former?current?) husband who wanted to marry me so that I would not challenge his “Cartel Acid-Burning Fingerprint” science article, the information having come from another one of my husbands, Rivi Ayala and practiced by all of the members of the cartel.

    The marriage was under duress just so’s you know. But, who knows. He may have bank and I would be entitled to half of it, right? Because, Lord knows I need a new computer and my Driver’s License reinstated since hubby number 6? 7? 8? decided to throw a temper tantrum and slammed his fist down on the one I’m trying to work off of now and Trump’s all but given up on me.

    My hat’s still in the ring, D. My mom says I’m like a pit bull, never letting go of a mission until it’s been accomplished, do or die.

    It’s OK to reference other sites, and to post relevant links. I would appreciate folks not posting large amounts of content from other sites, something that might violate copyright.

    It reminds me of the birther who tried to affect service on Obama through twitter.. The guy who used to claim Obama was a spy here.

    IANAL, but you can feel free to go ahead and testify against Mr. ZulloMoore if you wish.

    “Spousal Communications Privilege” does not apply to communications that occurred before the marriage. So anything you learned about Mike ZulloMoore before the marriage is fair game.

    Also, “Spousal Testimonial Privilege” applies to the ‘witness-spouse’ not the ‘party-spouse’, in Federal Cases (and varies State by State in State cases). So your purported husband, Mike ZulloMoore cannot prevent you from testifying about him if you so desire.

    Also, forced marriages are usually voidable – check with your local Florida authorities. I am sure there is probably a Women’s halfway house in your neighborhood that would be happy to consult with you about it.

    I repeat that IANAL and YMMV, but Dr. Wikipedia can be your friend if you let him.

    I agree that I can testify against him. My question is, how much of MY money did he steal? For the record, Sheriff Dyess, beyond any doubt, also stole money from me.

    It played out like this: “Go do the dirty work, Nancy. Ok, now I’m taking your money and if you talk, we’ll kill you. We’re going to throw in a bunch of rapes and tortures just for good measure because we can.”

    Obviously, they didn’t expect me to live this long. They didn’t expect me to talk. And, they didn’t, here they might be right, expect anybody to believe me even if I did. They didn’t expect the higher authorities to get involved, which they aren’t. And, they don’t expect the media to cover this even if people do start to believe.

    I lived through it and even I have a hard time absorbing it all which is why, I suppose, so much was blocked out. That and their hypnosis routines.

    So,

    If you’re pressing charges against ZulloMoore, Bush and the others, count me in.

    :o)
