Why the silence from the Cold Case Posse?

There could be some big announcements in the case soon and forthcoming.

Sheriff Arpaio & Mike Zullo Are Saying Investigation Press Conference Forthcoming

— Carl Gallups
— Freedom Friday February 2015

My habit is to goad the birthers by explaining the Posse’s years of silence, saying “they have nothing.” That’s true in the sense that it is unlikely that the Cold Case Posse, with no manpower to speak of, no resources, and no expertise, would scoop everyone else in the country in uncovering some infamous crime related to Obama’s presidency. My reason might apply to a real law enforcement investigation where standards of evidence apply, but what does that have to do with the Cold Case Posse?

Mike Zullo, fronted by Sheriff Joe Arpaio, presented a raft of issues in his first two press conferences. The standards of evidence didn’t come into play in the selection of that material–arguments and evidence that utterly fell apart under scrutiny. Looking behind the curtain, we found conspiracy theorist author Jerome Corsi feeding much of the bogus evidence. We still don’t know how the fake race code table from the Daily Pen Blog made it to the Posse, but we know Corsi had a hand in getting a bogus confirmation of it. Even with Corsi apparently out of the birth certificate business, there must still be many birther sleuths with their own pet theories being sent to Mike Zullo. I cannot believe that the absence of a third press conference can be attributed to a lack of material. As we know, birthers believe anything, and Zullo is easily fooled. I suppose it is possible that Mike Zullo is too busy pursuing other ways of making a living, to assemble a presentation with the appropriate official-sounding trappings.

In my mind, a strong contender for an explanation is to avoid embarrassing questions. Since the 2nd press conference, two mini scandals arose: Zullo’s acceptance of $10,000 for his personal use from a birther who was also supplying material to the Posse’s investigation, and the disclosure that Arpaio had paid over $100,000 to a con man for evidence supposedly related to the Justice Department (I think this was the source of the universe-shattering revelation that fizzled). If a press conference were held, hard questions about these would certainly be appropriate.

While I think it unlikely, it is conceivable that members of Arpaio’s staff, some of whom are serious professionals, have counseled the Sheriff about the poor quality of the Cold Case Posse work product and that Arpaio has required that any new material be vetted by real detectives. That would effectively screen out anything birther.

It might be that yet another press conference, followed by no indictment, would highlight for the birthers the futility of the entire exercise.

One final possibility is that the difficult situation Arpaio faces with a federal judge scrutinizing his department, and threatening contempt of court against Arpaio, might have convinced him that now is the time to keep his head down and not make bogus accusations against the President.

Whatever the underlying reasons, I think that the most reasonable explanation for the silence is that Joe Arpaio considers it not to his political advantage that a press conference be held.

(I’m assuming that no press conference is actually forthcoming. If it really were forthcoming, then the appropriate thing would be to announce the press conference and give a date.)


The full Gallups quote from 2013 is:

PPS has been in direct contact with the Sheriff Arpaio investigation. We have just again been assured by Lt. Mike Zullo lead investigator that the investigation and potential angles of prosecution are still going full steam ahead. Just because it’s not in the news right now does not mean they are not feverishly working on the matter. There could be some big announcements in the case soon and forthcoming.

The apotheosis of the birthers

“Apotheosis” is one of a handful of words that I’ve always wanted to use in a sentence. One definition of apotheosis is:

the highest point in the development of something; culmination or climax

I got to use it at Birther Report yesterday. Here’s a bit of the exchange:

VeniVidiVici4U: kevin,  your false sense of security is about to come face to face with a serious case of asswhooping reality.

Dr. Conspiracy: You seem to think that as the days pass, you are getting closer to the apotheosis of the birthers. But you’re doing nothing more than going around in circles chanting the same mantra of forgery this and fraud that (and telling yourselves that Zullo will save you).

I used it to describe the mythical transformation of birthers from a bunch of Internet Yahoos to the heroic removers of the usurper president, who saved the Republic from destruction, and are forever enshrined in the pantheon of true patriots™.

What strikes me about the discussion at BR is the earnestness and consistency of the belief. I suppose I could paste a compilation of similar statements, but that would be tedious and not particularly informative. Suffice it say that there are many, and I’ll leave with two examples:

BornTexas: It’s not impeachment that will end the usurpation, it will be the mountain of lies and fraud revealed for all to see. Once released, the feeding frenzy will be epic. Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide. The Dems will eat their own to avoid the gallows. Soetoro and his enabling minions will suffer the brunt of the onslaught.

William: I don’t get it. You are going to lose. How you deal with that fact is concerning.

I’m just not seeing this.

Soon

A commenter pointed me to a message from Carl Gallups on Facebook, posted just a few hours ago:

We spoke with Carl Gallups. Here is what he told us concerning this matter:

"I have spoken at length with Mike Zullo. He says that he and the sheriff are still proceeding with the investigation and their plans to release the information. They believe it will be soon. HOWEVER, as reported before – they have been involved in jumping some huge legal hurdles that will enable them to bring this info forward. They are still involved in one big legal hurdle now. They hope to have it resolved soon. Any major movement in the case coming forward will be announced on Freedom Friday with Carl Gallups (carlgallups.com) and on the PNN internet network."

Gallups later posted at 5 PM that Zullo would be on the show at 5 PM. You COULD have given a little advance notice, Carl. So that will be something to listen to.1

What Gallups said about legal hurdles is a reprise of what he’d said half a year ago (except for the “s” word):

Carl Gallups: Been talking to Mike Zullo. Both the birth certificate and criminal investigations are still ongoing. Sheriff Arpaio is getting close to holding the press conference. They are in the process of getting over two legal hurdles so they can release some of the information. All sources and information must be extensively vetted.

For the boy who cried “wolf!” one too many times, the word lost its meaning through misuse. The same might be said of the word “soon” coming from Mike Zullo and Carl Gallups. My favorite example comes from February 7, 2014:

Gallups: You’re guys are confirming that you are very, very sure, very sure you know who several of these people are. …

Zullo: Yada, Yada, Yada. … This is going to be their play: deny, deny, deny.

Gallups: Right, but, but, they’re lying, lying, lying because you’ve got the goods, right?

Zullo: I’ve got the proof, proof, proof.

Gallups: OK, good. And the whole world is gonna see it, see it, see it, real soon.

In a video posted in May 2014 (and subsequently deleted) Gallups said:

So, we’ll know soon exactly what’s going to happen. In the mean time, from time to time Mike Zullo and I will give updates so that you will know that it’s still in the works, and still going to happen. God bless you.

We all remember the expectations of a “March reveal” in 2014, but even then birthers, like Mark Gillar, were prepared to give the Cold Case Posse a little breathing room:

… Don’t focus on a timeline. As far as I’m concerned as long as it breaks by summer and impacts the 2014 midterms, I’ll be happy.

Was 2014 the year of “soon”?

No, it started way before that. This is from Gallups January 2013:

PPS has been in direct contact with the Sheriff Arpaio investigation. We have just again been assured by Lt. Mike Zullo lead investigator that the investigation and potential angles of prosecution are still going full steam ahead. Just because it’s not in the news right now does not mean they are not feverishly working on the matter. There could be some big announcements in the case soon and forthcoming.


1We would be better able to track the delays if we had transcripts of the Gallups/Zullo segments. I made a few partial transcripts of them for articles, and I will continue to do that. Zullo has been on many times.

The wait is almost over

Here an old video (December 26, 2013) titled “How Many Will Go To Jail To Protect Obama?” that says “THE WAIT IS ALMOST OVER.” It’s on Mark Gillar’s Tea Party Power Hour YouTube channel.

Yea, Mark, any day now.

…when a prophet speaks…, if the word does not come to pass or come true… The prophet has spoken presumptuously. You need not be afraid of him.

– Deuteronomy 18:22, The Holy Bible

“Any day now” gets closer

It’s been a slow week and I am reduced to republishing Birther Report. One of them had the stomach to listen to Carl Gallups Freedom Friday program and this comes from that:

Carl Gallups: Been talking to Mike Zullo. Both the birth certificate and criminal investigations are still ongoing. Sheriff Arpaio is getting close to holding the press conference. They are in the process of getting over two legal hurdles so they can release some of the information. All sources and information must be extensively vetted.

So “any day now” becomes “getting close” and “getting VIPs on board” becomes “getting over two legal hurdles.” I wonder what those legal hurdles are. Could they be:

  1. No evidence
  2. No jurisdiction

Perhaps we will find out, any day now.

Obots betrayed!

Birther says

Today’s Quote of the Day came from William, writing at Birther Report:

Besides, 2 of the main Obots (possibly more now) have already rolled over. Their followers are simply too stupid to know it – Yet…

Being a slow news day, I decided to break out the PULP-O-MIZER and try to express William’s sentiment graphically.

Pulp-O-Mizer_Cover_ Mark II

I’ve gotten many, many comments at BR suggesting that the Obots should turn themselves in to the Cold Case Posse (as if they had any authority as law enforcement) to avoid being killed by the Obama Administration, a fate they call “Fuddied” after Hawaii Department of Health’s Loretta Fuddy who died following a plane crash late last year.

I’ve been getting comments at BR saying that I should make an advance directive that my body be autopsied (comment deleted during recent purge at BR). I want to donate my body for medical education.

BR’s latest article is titled “FF: Sheriff Joe Obama ID Fraud Investigation:  They Know Who Forged Obama Birth Certificate.” I don’t think Zullo actually said that, but the birthers took Zullo’s comments that way. Gallups said:

The second thing that Mike Zullo revealed was that he again spoke on behalf of Joe Arpaio, assuring America that they are now honing in on “the group responsible for the forging of the fake document.”

The birthers responded (names not included to protect the disabled):

Obots, you’re next.
Cut a deal with Zullo, before the regime Fuddies you.

Dr Casket, are you really sitting at a computer connected to the web right now?
Do you understand NSA knows where you are, and your Fuddying is likely to happen at any moment?
Call Zullo ASAP, and offer to testify against the other Obots.

Time is soon one way or the other. Obots need to watch their backs If Zullo don’t get them Patriots will but in the end if Zullo and Patriots fail Obama will have their heads.

Yep, BOTH sides want to ‘get’ the Obots.
Patriots want Obots convicted/hanged.
Ostapo wants Obots ‘permanently silenced.’

yup, poor obots, nobody wants them anymore. I read on freerepublic that someone close to obozo is considering sticking obots that have fallen out of favour into femacamps previously reserved for patriots. there they will receive extra humiliating "therapy" explaining them how they have fallen short of gaymarxistkenyan principles. they will wish to have fallen into the hands of patriots instead ..

Dr Casket,
Watch out for exploding tampons.

Hmm, I wonder if some of the obots already testified to a secret grand jury. I wonder.

Obots, run away, run away as fast as you can. Forgers known, universe shattering information is COURT ROOM ready. Learn something from Loretta Fuddy.

I have gotten to the point that I am not going to advise obots to seek a deal with law enforcement. If they are stupid enough to not realize the gravity of the situation and exercise a little self-preservation, then please come to BR and continue to spew your disinformation, your lame attempts to discourage us, and your desperate ranting. The party is about to start and if you’ve aided and abetted or had direct knowledge of the commission of these crimes you will go from "persons of interest" to "persons incarcerated".

Triple-V,
I want Obots to cut a deal with Zullo, b/c after the Regime has the Obots fuddied, we may never know what the heck happened.
It could turn into another ‘Who shot JFK’ mystery for the next 100 years.
Every Obot is a valuable source of intel. They exist for a reason, and we need them alive and talking to whatever genuine law enforcement still exists in the USA.
After they spill their guts, we should execute them. Or, if they prove instrumental in taking down hundreds of Marxist traitors in the Regime and FedGov, then maybe they win a deal for Life In Prison with no chance of parole.
