I really haven’t covered the silly notion that Obots work for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), you know the guys who helped Al Gore invent the Internet. So where did this notion come from?
It appears to have originated with a Mike Zullo appearance on the Carl Gallups Freedom Friday radio show on February 7, 2014.
Gallups: Obots, we know that there are operatives out there—Obama-loving operatives. That’s OK to love Obama; that’s fine, but these people have interjected themselves all throughout this investigation in various ways, some to the point of actually, I think, interfering with the investigation, but they’ve interjected themselves on radio and the Internet, Blogtalk Radio, my radio program and all over the blogs and web sites, but isn’t it correct, my understanding that you know who some or most of these guys are, the most important ones, I mean have you done some digging? You know who those guys are?
Zullo: We have a pretty good idea of who some of the ones who are anonymous are. One we know works in the field of artificial intelligence in projects that are funded by DARPA. That tells you a lot right there. We have traced IP addresses going directly back to the Administration.
Despite that exchange, and opening the show with a lengthy segment on Obots, Gallups repeats over and over that the Obots are “irrelevant.” Then remarkably, Zullo and Gallups credit the Obots for the Xerox 7655 story, which they said pointed the investigation towards some “deep, deep, deep stuff.”
The show then got a little silly:
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.
Of course, the world didn’t see anything, and Zullo just kept pushing the date out for his universe-shattering revelations. Zullo never named his DARPA Obot, or even said the Obot actually works for DARPA. Continue Reading →
