Birthers’ basket case

Santilli loose on the White House lawn?

Mike Volin was on the Pete Santilli radio show a few days ago. A YouTube video has part of the show, and a discussion. From the show:

Santilli: I’m going to offer this to Mike Zullo, all right? Do you believe, based on the information you have on your web site, the investigation that Sheriff Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse has investigated, do you believe that right now, that if you were to put everything into a basket, OK, or a brief case, that there is enough information, set aside “willing to” or “not willing to,” set that aside. Is there enough information right now that could get Barack Obama arrested if we apply the law, that he has broken the law and he needs to go behind bars, and of course in a court of law all this evidence needs to be presented. But is there enough evidence to throw him in jail?

Mike Volin: Absolutely, beyond any shadow of a doubt.

Fox NewsSantilli: OK, here’s what I am going to offer up to you. You ready? You can do this. I could call up Mike Zullo and offer this. I’m not going to. OK? I’m going to put out a challenge to Mike Zullo and Sheriff Arpaio. With the assistance of law enforcement, if they have information right now that shows that Barack Obama has committed fraud, has perpetrated fraud upon the American people, tell him I’ll meet him in front of the White House and I will volunteer with them, with with the assistance of law enforcement and the United States Marine Corps and the Secret Service, I will jump over, with the assistance of course of law enforcement, lawful and constitutional, of the front fence of the White House and go in there and deliver that information of course they probably will just let me go. They won’t stop me, of course. But if there’s enough evidence, OK, that he’s broken the law, I would be prepared in order to bring this to the American people. I’ll live stream it, if Zullo will meet me out front. I’m not going to wait until an election. If he wants to meet me, I’ll jump on a flight, right now and I will meet him in front of the White House, on principal, on law, on Constitutionality, and with the help of law enforcement, with the military, with the Secret Service, with the Department of Justice, all of those people, I’d volunteer do that. And if they want to arrest me, I’ll bring evidence to court to show that I am justified in doing so, on behalf of the people of the United States of America. Will you get that information to Mike Zullo?

This is what I heard in all of that. Pete Santilli, unwilling to stand for election, has made himself the representative of the American people, and has offered to lead a military coup against the President of the United States. While he talks about “Constitutionality,” he totally ignores the Constitution in several ways. He ignores the fact that our Founders set up a system of checks and balances, and it is the Congress of the United States that the Constitution assigns the power to remove a President upon conviction for “high crimes.” It is not assigned to the military, the Secret Service, the Justice Department, law enforcement or some talk show host. The second major unconstitutional flaw is in the Bill of Rights (part of the Constitution):

No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger…

It is the opinion of prior US Attorneys General that a sitting President cannot be indicted or arrested for a crime. To allow that would impede the functioning of government and violate the separation of powers under the Constitution.

Santilli just wants to jump over the fence with his information. Of course Santilli would be arrested (assuming he wasn’t shot on sight) just like any other fruit cake who tries such a stunt. Santilli would never have the opportunity to present any of his birther “information” before the court because it is irrelevant to the crime of violating the Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act of 2011. Who made Pete Santilli the representative of the American people? I seem to recall that Barack Obama is the one elected President.


“I’m not a cop”

That’s what one Sun City posse member says in this video clip from “The Joe Show.” One of the most important jobs of the Sun City Posse is to check on peoples’ houses while they are on vacation.

I check the front door to make sure it’s locked. I rig the doorbell to make sure nobody’s home. I try the garage doors. If I find anything wrong, if I find a door open, if I find a broken window, anything that looks suspicious, I’m out of there. I’m not a cop.


Cold Case Posse gets a pass

In a move that’s leaving this writer’s head shaking, the Arizona Corporation Commission has confirmed that the Cold Case Posse is now in good standing with the Commission, and that it’s corporate filings now conform with statutory requirements (even though that hardly seems possible).

A copy of the following email was forwarded to me:

Thank you for the additional information regarding the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Cold Case Posse.  We have reviewed the recent submissions relating to this entity and can accurately state that all approved filings are in compliance with applicable statutes.  The entity record has been updated to reflect those approved filings.

Thank you again for the information.


Tanya M. Gibson, Deputy Director

I will refrain from saying something catty at this point.


Some folks have gone over the CCP filing in detail and have concluded that the letter of the law has been followed, if perhaps not the intent. What we see here is the continued program of hiding and non-disclosure from the Cold Case Posse that I think is in appropriate for an organization that gets a tax exemption from the government.

Flash: Cold Case Posse in good standing. Why?

Updates to the Arizona Corporation Commission web site show the Cold Case Posse now in good standing. I said it would be simple to fix. What is strange is that the corporation’s address remains the address of a post office and the Agent physical address a FORMER location of the Sheriff’s Office, where we confirmed that the Cold Case Posse and Mike Zullo do not have an office.

Stay tuned.

Cold Case Posse officer guilty of perjury?

False statement on corporate filing

We’ve all been having our little laugh about the antics of the Cold Case Posse and their inability to fix a simple corporate registration in Arizona. It should be a simple fix, but if they don’t get on the stick, their little enterprise may get dissolved in about 52 days.

However, something a little more serious has surfaced in the Posse’s 2014 Annual Report with the Arizona Corporations Commission, filed this past June 16, and signed by Mike Kowalski (bearing the title “Other Officer” whatever that is). The signature on the form, in this case electronic, is given under this text:

I further declare under penalty of perjury that I (we) have examined this report and the certificate, including any attachments, and to the best of my (our) knowledge and belief they are true, correct and complete.

Let’s examine one item on the annual report:


That is not true and it is not correct.

Given the significant publicity accompanying the move of the Sheriff’s Office to new facilities at 550 West Jackson Street over 6 months ago, it is hard to excuse anyone in one of the posses not knowing there the Sheriff’s Office is, and that it is no longer at 100 W. Washington, the address filed with the Arizona Corporations Commission for Mike Zullo a scant 10 days ago.


Some speculated that perhaps the Sheriff’s Office still maintains a presence in the old building, and that Zullo can be reached at that address. Not so, according to the property manager as confirmed today by Lori Brown:

I am responding on behalf of Danny Ischy as he is traveling this week.  I have confirmed with our Property Manager that everyone from the Maricopa County Sheriff’s office vacated the Wells Fargo building in December 2013 and Mr. Zullo no longer has an office at 100 W. Washington St.

Thanks to individuals who provided information for this story.

Cold Case Posse faces dissolution

The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Cold Case Posse has been operating for over 2 years without valid corporate filings with the State of Arizona. They used a bogus address (the street address of a post office) for their place of business in violation of the statute. A notice of deficiency was sent to the CCP, and no appropriate corrections have been made. The CCP’s latest filing this past Monday, June 16, still has the bogus address!

The CCP has now been given 60 days, and if they do not remedy their filings, the CCP corporation will be dissolved.



You can search for an Arizona corporation on the Commission web site (search under Annual Report). The Cold Case Posse file number is 1334289-0.


Zullo responds. Will use Sheriff’s Office for address (only that’s not really the Sheriff’s office address he used). Read it all at the Phoenix New Times, where you see Zullo say:



imageEven so, the Corporate Annual Report filed this past June 16, lists a 10-month-old address for Zullo at the Sheriff’s Office (right). No wonder he can’t respond to notices from the ACC: Zullo gave them the wrong address.
