“God’s Birther–The Fractal Failures of Carl Gallups”-Part II

The Maricopa County Cold Case Posse

Sheriff Arpaio with CCCP investigator Mike Zullo

Sheriff Arpaio with CCCP investigator Mike Zullo

On March 1, 2012 Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s “Cold Case Posse” held the first of two disastrous press conferences to announce the status of their “investigation” into the legitimacy of the scanned image of the President’s birth certificate that had been released almost a year earlier and posted on the Whitehouse.gov website. It was the coming out party for lead investigator Mike Zullo, a retired used car salesman who had decades earlier had careers first a police officer and then a private investigator both of which quickly fizzled. Arpaio had provided Zullo the opportunity to “play cop” again years earlier. But by 2011 Zullo and the Posse had a half decade record of never actually investigating cold cases, relegated instead to transporting prisoners between the court and jail, or serving as bouncers for local bars.

The birth certificate “investigation” changed all that. Within Birthistan, Zullo quickly became a bit of a hero (even while many or most of his supporters insisted on referring to him as “Zulu” when calling into one of the several redundant birther Blogtalk programs). As the proverbial big fish in a tiny puddle, Zullo’s sense of self importance quickly clouded any serious introspection regarding his actual competence as an investigator. Almost out of the gate, Zullo found himself in charge of an “investigation” concerning technological and legal issues that he comprehensively could not understand.

As far as we can tell, it was April of 2012 when Zullo and Gallups first directly linked up. On the 29th of that month, Gallups interviewed Zullo for the first time on his “Freedom Friday” radio program during which the introduction implied they had spoken to each other for the first time only a few days prior. Over the course of the ensuing two years their relationship would grow increasingly symbiotic, with Gallups repeatedly claiming that he “talks to Mike on the phone nearly every day,” repeatedly asserting that he was privy to all of the developing “evidence” the posse was acquiring, and ultimately claiming to have even become “Mike’s Pastor.” On at least one occasion, the two traveled together to the Greater Washington DC area to promote the Posse’s work at CPAC. By March of 2014, Zullo had formalized Gallups’ status as official Posse mouthpiece by announcing that “when I release information about this it will be released to Carl Gallups and through PPSIMMONS.”

It was this relationship with Zullo and the Posse that elevated Gallups into the top tier of the birther aristocracy and took the governor off of his own capacity for self restraint. Faced with the fact that the Posse’s “investigation” had stretched from weeks to months to years, Gallups was compelled to simulate progress when there was actually none, lest the birther faithful grow bored and frustrated. Worse yet, on November 6, 2012 Obama was reelected to a second term in spite of the Posse’s two press conferences and subsequent hand waving across the birthersphere. So much hope had been pinned on the Posse’s finding s preventing exactly that actuality and it had proved incompetent to the task. By winter 2012, the wheels were coming off.

Gallups decided to act.

December 2012: The First “Huge Announcement.”

On December 1, 2012 PPSIMMONS posted a video, narrated by Gallups himself entitled,  “Breaking: 2 Huge Announcements on BHO’s Eligibility.” The second of those “huge announcements” was the first of what would become Gallups serial failed promises of an impending break in the eligibility controversy. Gallups breathlessly announced that:

PPSIMMONS has exclusive inside information that a surprising and potentially devastating eligibility event is scheduled to happen before the January 6th Electoral College certification, perhaps by the middle of December. This event most likely will be aired on national cable television and around the world exposing Obama’s ineligibility. The person doing the exposing is a Very Important Person with Constitutional standing to do the exposing of the evidence against Obama. Stay tuned to the PPSIMMIONS channel for all the breaking news on this topic.

The announcement was met with jubilation across Birthistan. Having already lost the election, and with Obama having weathered a lengthy birther campaign of sometimes comical state ballot challenges, the Electoral College certification was seen as the last obvious opportunity for the Cold Case Posse to still make a difference. The added promise of exposure on “national cable television” was like catnip to the masses. Throw in the mysterious “Very Important Person with Constitutional standing” and the buzz was electric.

It worked so well that Gallups decided to do it again one week later. In another Gallups narrated PPSIMMON video titled, “Breaking! Sheriff Arpaio – FULL STEAM AHEAD with BHO Investigation – Surprises COMING!” Gallups announced that:

According to Lieutenant Mike Zullo, the evidence continues to mount and continues to be verified by some surprising and perhaps soon to be announced sources. As PPSIMMONS reported last week we have also received inside information from a confidential but highly knowledgeable source that within the next week or so there will be a huge push forward on the eligibility investigation, lining up before the January 6th date when Congress is supposed to certify the Electoral College votes. According to the US Constitution Congress has the authority and responsibility to verify the eligibility of the candidate that it is certifying by the Electoral College. This huge push forward is scheduled to involve a uniquely qualified VIP whose announcement may wind up on national and international television. Stay Tuned. PPSIMMONS will keep you up to date on all of this information and any other breaking news.

“Within the next week or so” was reasonably understood to mean by the middle of December. And so of course, as December began to draw to a close both the expectation and frustration level among the birther faithful began to rise dramatically. By the first week of January, birthers were wearing out the refresh button on their browsers, desperately waiting for the event that would stop the Electoral Vote certification in its tracks.

It never came.

How did AP photographer J. Scott Applewhite photograph the copy of the Obama LFBC?

Commenter Hermitian has made various and conflicting claims about the photo taken by AP  photographer J. Scott Applewhite on the morning of April 27, 2011 just after President Obama’s Press Secretary Jay Carney handed out copies of the newly obtained Obama Hawaiian long form birth certificate. The copy was part of a packet that also contained a copy of the short form previously released, the request letter sent by President Obama’s attorney, and the response letter from the Hawaii Department of Health.

Hermitian denied that the photo was of the press handout and denied it could have been taken with a handheld camera.


Scott Applewhite’s Photo of the press handout on April 27, 2011

In this side splittingly funny comment Hermitian said:

RC can keep spreading mustard on his bolony (bologna) but I don’t buy any of his blather. As for his latest lunacy we can obliterate his claim in a flash.

We know that the two certified copies were purported to be dry copies of the original long-form birth certificate made on basket-weave safety paper. by the HDOH.

From other information, we know that this paper would have been Simpson 24 lb stock. The Simpson paper has the basket-weave pattern on both sides of the sheet. So there is no way that the copy of the Obama short-form certificate would be visible through this heavyweight basket-weave paper. Consequently, we know that the top sheet of the reporter’s handout stack was itself a copy.

Secondly, because he is a professional, there is no way that Applewhite would agree to photograph a copy when the original was in the room. And we can be positive that he would not have agreed to photograph a copy while a reporter photographed the original in B&W with her cell phone. He would only do so if ordered to by his management at the AP. Even then a professional would probably have refused and then called his union steward to get his job back.

John Woodman was one of the first Birther debunkers to realize how problematic the AP photo was to the group of bumbling Birthers pretending to be image and computer experts and doing amateur hour analyses of the LFBC PDF file posted later the same day of the release of the LFBC on the White House web site. Woodman saw that the PDF could not be the source of the AP image? Why? Because the AP image contains details not visible on the PDF. One excellent example of the difference in the images is to look at the portion of the Registrar’s stamp where the Birther “experts” claimed that the world “THE” is misspelled and is “TXE” Here we see the difference:

WH LFBC: (Images courtesy of Obama Conspiracy Theories blog from the article “TXE”: it bears repeating)



Detail from Obama's long-form birth certificate

The AP image is just even more conclusive proof that the LFBC PDF is not an original “forgery”. If you believe that then you must believe that the AP JPG was also forged independently. The idea that someone unnamed generated multiple independent forgeries is of course insane. Only someone with no grip on reality would make such a moronic claim. The alternative theory  would be that the AP document was forged and it was the source of the LFBC PDF scanned file. That of course would make all the analysis of the PDF “layers” null and void. And then there is the Savannah Guthrie photo of course …

So what did Scott Applewhite photograph on that morning almost three years ago? What kind of camera did he use? What about that bluish tint to the image?

I decided that the way to obtain answers to those questions was obvious. Why not ask Mr. Applewhite?

I just made contact with Mr. Applewhite who still works for AP but now covers Congress instead of the White House. He remembered that morning very well. He graciously answered my questions:

You ask about the president’s birth certificate photo. I went to the White House regularly for many years but now concentrate on Congress. I certainly remember that day when the White House press office was handing out copies of the President Obama’s birth record in order to dispel the controversy and argument about his true nationality. Since I don’t have a macro setup or lens, I’m sure I just copied the sheet of paper handed out by the White House by using my Canon EOS 1D Mark IV at the time, either using a 24-70 zoom or a 50mm lens. And yes, handheld.

This wasn’t art. It was early in the day and I was simply making a quick copy of the document to transmit to the AP’s Washington Bureau — it would have been their job then for the reporters to use their resources to validate or question the information. My cameras are pretty high resolution — generally about 40 to 50mb every time I push the button.  This time however I was just a human xerox machine. As for the bluish tint, not sure, since I was simply relaying the information on the document, I may not have done the usual color correction which is normal to adjust proper skin tones, etc.

As I recall, it wasn’t too long after copying the document that President Obama actually appeared in the Press Room to personally address the issue.

It is easy to look up the specs for the camera Mr. Applewhite used. It is a 16 Megapixel model. And honestly, I didn’t solicit his reference to being a “human xerox”. That was his own wording.

So there you have it. Just as we have tried to tell Hermtian for days Scott Applewhite snapped a handheld photo of the copy of the LFBC from the handout at the press briefing. Mystery solved. Hermitian is wrong once again and the sun will set in the west soon after I write these words.

“God’s Birther–The Fractal Failures of Carl Gallups”

By Frank Arduini

[RC: This is a first in a series of guest articles on Pastor Carl Gallups written by the nemesis of Birthers far and wide, Frank Arduini, aka “Historian Dude” on many blogs and “Epectitus” at The Fogbow. It is a review of his repeated announcements of announcements that are never actually announced.]

Near the tip of the Florida panhandle, perched on the banks of the aptly named Blackwater River, lays the small town of Milton. Originally named Scottsman’s Anchorage and still carrying the local nickname of “Scratch Ankle,” Milton’s primary claim to fame is that it was burned to the ground by Confederate forces retreating from the Union capture of Pensacola in May of 1862 after which most of its residents fled to Alabama. With a population of less than 10,000 today, its primary industries are warehousing prisoners at the State Correctional Facility, a 129 bed general hospital, and a railroad museum. It is your typical Deep South backwater, long past its prime. redolent with a pervasive sense of southern decay. It is, as the wag would say, a great place to be from.

Head a few miles to the southeast across the Blackwater and Interstate 10, and you will eventually find on the edge of a cemetery (and in the middle of almost nowhere else) a complex of five tin roofed buildings with dirt parking lots on one side and across the road. This is Hickory Hammock Baptist Church. Over the course of a quarter century, the senior pastor there, William Carl Gallups Jr., has built the congregation from about 100 people to more than a thousand; a decent sized church for the Southern Baptist Convention.

Gallups received the call to preach after a ten year career in law enforcement and Florida Department of Corrections, though the actual details are sketchy. He built his ministry in the time tested Baptist way, primarily around good old Christian apologetics; the combative defense of the faith in the face of encroaching secularism and unbelief. As part of his apologetic program, he holds a vigorous and often unintentionally humorous obsession with end-time eschatology, spending a vast amount of effort explaining with great confidence the often imaginary details of an event that even Jesus himself proved unable to predict accurately. The record of his ministry (at least as can be found online) is that of a joyless theological offensive against the evils of Darwinism, homosexuality, atheism, Islam and anything else he can spin as signs of the end of days.

At some point, certainly by late 2010, he had added President Obama to the mix and began to hint that he might actually be “The Antichrist.” At about the same time Gallups became an adherent of birthism. But it wasn’t until later that next year when he hitched his wagon to the Maricopa County Cold Case Posse’s ostensible investigation of the President’s birth certificate that other birthers began to pay attention to him. By striking up a personal relationship with the equally oleaginous lead investigator of that Posse, Mike Zullo, Gallups managed to usurp the position of a previous MCCCP mouthpiece and take over as the media face of the Posse, even though he was not an actual member.

It is worth reflecting on the similarity between both of Gallups’ most prominent obsessions. The first is the imminent return of Jesus Christ. The second is the imminent exposure of Barack Obama. The former remains an unsatisfied expectation after more than two thousand years. The latter remains an unsatisfied expectation after a half decade. This sort of identical outcome at two such widely different scales of resolution is what mathematicians call “fractal.” It does not matter how close you look, or how far you step back. It looks exactly the same.

And certainly, Gallups has proved to” fail fractally” with almost his every assertion, conclusion, prediction and expectation regarding the birther issue. At almost every level of resolution, what he says he believes on the issue turns out to be wrong. Even his most casual anecdote regarding the issue often proves unable to survive the slightest critical scrutiny. His pronouncements on the issue have progressively escalated in urgency and absurdity over the months and years, and yet the outcomes have never once changed. Every deadline he sets is missed. Every prediction he ventures ends up being wrong. Every accusation he makes proves false. Every promise he makes crumbles to ash in the mouths of his rapt birther flock.

But only long enough for him to rinse and repeat.

To be  continued ….

I changed the way comments are posted

I changed the settings on comments so that they are no longer nested. Nested comments work well until the discussion get lengthy. If you are replying to someone you can quote some of the original comment or give the date and time of the comment. It is easier to follow longer discussions if they are not nested. I set the sorting with newer comments will be added at the bottom.

I would appreciate any feedback you might have on the change.

New Xerox 7655 files with 1652 x 1276 JPG background images

Hermitian has claimed in comments that the Xerox WorkCentre 7655 will not produce PDF’s with the background JPG dimensions the same as the Obama LFBC PDF. A reader has sent me two scans that show that Hermitian is once again wrong. (I know. What else is new?)

Here are the files:

01330 Submittal Procedures

16215 Power Distribution System Study

We can find the objects by opening the files in Wordpad or another text editor and looking for the objects with 8 bits per component and we will find the object dimensions.

7 0 obj
<< /Length 3415
/Type /XObject
/Subtype /Image
/BitsPerComponent 8
/Width 1652
/Height 1276
/ColorSpace /DeviceGray
/Filter [/FlateDecode /DCTDecode]
/DecodeParms [null 8 0 R]

Of course all Hermitian had to do was to download the PDF of the Obama’s 2010 tax returns posted on the White House web site to find the same dimensions:

<</BitsPerComponent 8/ColorSpace/DeviceGray/DecodeParms[null 533 0 R]/Filter[/FlateDecode/DCTDecode]/Height 1276/Length 2108/Subtype/Image/Type/XObject/Width 1652>>stream

These dimensions and the Obama tax return scan provide very strong evidence that the WorkCentre 7655 was the exact model used to produce the LFBC scan. The meta data in the Obama tax rerurn places that model in the Executive Office of the President where such personal documents would most likely be managed.

The Obama LFBC PDF itself has the same dimensions:

<< /Length 8 0 R /Type /XObject /Subtype /Image /Width 1652 /Height 1276 /ColorSpace
11 0 R /BitsPerComponent 8 /Filter /DCTDecode >>

I have run a number of letter sized scans using the Xerox WorkCentre 7535 and the dimensions of the background objects are 1664 x 1280. For example here is a scan I made to test halo creation on a Xerox WorkCentre 7535:

Zebest on Green SP

The dimensions for the background layer are found in the ususal manner:

6 0 obj
<< /Length 128646
/Type /XObject
/Subtype /Image
/BitsPerComponent 8
/Width 1664
/Height 1280
/ColorSpace /DeviceRGB
/Filter [/FlateDecode /DCTDecode]
/DecodeParms [null 7 0 R]

The dimensions for both models make sense for a 150 dpi nominal 8-1/2″ x 11″ scan. The 7535 scan size is slightly larger than the 7655. It is not surprising that there is some slight variation between models. We can use these variations to help determine the particular model Xerox that was used.

There are a number of tell tale signs that a Xerox WorkCentre was used to scan the PDF file of the LFBC posted at the White House web site. The “YCbCr” comment is the most compelling of all. The evidence is now overwhelming.

Why Lyin’ Carl Gallups may be the worst birther in the world – Part VIII-Conclusion

Why Lyin’ Carl Gallups may be the worst birther in the world.

Capt. Charles Tuttle, MD, US Army (Ret)

Part VIII-Conclusion*

I believe that Carl Gallups is an evil man. That much should be obvious from the first seven parts of this series. It is fair to say that there is not a single thing that he says that I would believe without verifying. This is what makes him so contemptible. He pretends to be a man of God and then spouts outrageous lies with a self-righteous attitude that drips with condescension. And honestly, I have not even scratched the surface of his reprehensibility. To me, he represents everything that is wrong with the extreme right.

I encourage you to go beyond this series of articles and do your own research. You will find that he a climate change denier, a creationist, and a fear monger. Lately, he has been spreading the word that the “Affordable Care Act” is an unmitigated disaster for the country. Now, I am not here to debate the merits of the Affordable Care Act, but it is based on sound economic principles. Rather, the point is that although there have been problems with the roll-out; the Act itself has only been effect for three months. It is way too early to tell what the long term results will be. He also called it wealth redistribution, which demonstrates a complete lack of understanding of the principles behind insurance or an intent to deceive his listeners.

You will also find that he egomaniac. Recently, I heard him actually state that his book “The Magic Man in the Sky” proved the existence of God. Further, the book supposedly proved creationism. Gallups has no background in science. Why he believes that he is qualified to write a single word about the scientific basis of evolution or creationism is reflective of ego. As an aside, he also claimed that the biological analysis contained in the book had been “peer reviewed” by experts and he was told that he was absolutely correct. No one knows these so called experts or seen any reports. So Carl is either lying again or the experts were handpicked among likeminded people and we have already seen the quality of people that Carl considers to be experts.

Currently, he is claiming that God is using his failed book; “The Rabbi who found Messiah” is being used by God to do miraculous things in Israel. If you listen to him, he is single handedly responsible for converting the entire nation of Israel to Christianity. I laugh every time he says that he is humbled by the fact that Christ is using him in this way. Nothing humbles Gallups. Even his interview style puts himself first.

I have lost count of the number of times that I have heard him say to the audience that he would let a guest tell a story in his own words, then proceed to tell the guest the story and ask him to correct him if he is wrong. Shockingly, the guest never corrects Gallups.

His arrogance allows him to call people who believe in science fools, especially evolutionists. Further, he is a master at twisting words. For example, during Bill Nye’s evolution debate with Ken Hamm, Nye stated that he could be persuaded if he saw evidence that he was wrong. Shortly thereafter, ppsimmons posted a video on YouTube boldly proclaiming that Bill Nye Admits Deep-time Evolution is Wrong – His Own words! If you take the time to watch the video, Bill Nye does not appear and did not admit anything. Rather, the video presents information, from its perspective, that it says supports its position and then assumes that it is, in fact, evidence that would convince Nye that his position was wrong. This is both arrogant and disingenuous


Gallups is also incredibly insecure about his positions despite his arrogance and ego. There is no other explanation for his bombastic statements about being vindicated, 1000% forgery, and the fact that he wants his show to be an echo chamber despite his weekly pronouncements that he wants to hear from you “even if you disagree” with him. This also shows up in how thin skinned he is. He simply cannot stand criticism and is intolerant of anything that he perceives as making him look bad.

Recently, he appeared on the David Pakman show to plug one of his books. Following that interview, where he was stumped by Pakman’s questions, he put out a series of videos specifically designed to make Pakman look bad. See Carl Gallups Baffles David Pakman! PAKMAN CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH and David Pakman Can’t Handle The Truth! Carl Gallups Throws Him for a Tizzy. I especially like it when he claims that he provided Pakman with indisputable evidence about the truth of the Bible. Assuming that Carl knows the meaning of the word indisputable, he is lying again, but that is a big assumption. He even had someone post at the Many Lies of Mike Zullo and Carl Gallups under the screen name ppsimmons to attack me and the page. I found it amusing.

This is completely consistent with the attacks by his minions on anyone who dares to give his books a bad review and the banning of posters to various websites and blogs. Personally, I do not ban anyone from my page unless they are spamming the page. As I have said previously, the reason that I do not ban is that I am absolutely confident in my position and have nothing to fear from birthers. Apparently, Gallups does not have that same confidence.

Gallups put himself in the public eye, both by being an outspoken birther and a published author. He should expect that he will be questioned, mocked and attacked for his positions.

It is always a question about how much a birther actually believes of the birther nonsense. Based on the number of outright, provable lies that Gallups tells on a regular basis, I believe that Gallups hates the President but he does not actually believe that the President is not eligible. I believe that he has an agenda. What that agenda is subject to debate. Gallups is evil. In my opinion he is the most evil of the birthers, at least the most evil of the public. There is a person who acts behind the scenes who is birther, who mostly, but not always hides in the shadows. Right now I am doing research into a series of articles about him. I will simply give you this hint: What do Carl Gallups, Larry Klaymann, Jerome Corsi and Justice Moore have in common? Is it a coincidence or is it incestuous?

Why Lyin’ Carl Gallups may be the worst birther in the world – Part VII – Even More of Carl’s Never Ending Lies

Why Lyin’ Carl Gallups may be the worst birther in the world.

Capt. Charles Tuttle, MD, US Army (Ret)

Part VII-Even More of Carl’s Never Ending Lies*

15.  CLAIMING THAT HIS BOOK “THE RABBI WHO FOUND MESSIAH IS A “RUN AWAY BEST SELLER” AND IN THE TOP ONE HUNDRED BEST SELLING BOOKS ON AMAZON.COM. As of today, the book is ranked #9,213 on Amazon.com and sinking like a stone. The other day it was in the top 6000 and three weeks before that the top 5000. To the best of my knowledge, it has never been ranked higher than #4000 overall. The only way to consider it a “best seller” is to narrow the categories significantly. For example, it is currently the number one seller in the textbooks, subcategory humanities, subcategory religious studies, subcategory Judaism. To put this into perspective, none of the other top 6 sellers in this category were published after 2011 and one was published as far back as 1992. Gallups never says how many books are actually being sold, just that it is a best seller. Keep in mind that his publisher is WND, which also published Corsi’s book “Where’s the Birth Certificate”, which was listed as a best seller despite the fact that the vast majority of its sales were from a bulk sale purchased by WND itself. Not only is Gallups’ book not a best seller, it is so bad that Gallups “bribed” people to give it a good review on Amazon.com. Specifically, on November 10, 2013, Gallups offered the people who gave the book a five star review a free copy of the DVD documentary that went with the book. This is a screen shot from Gallups’ Facebook  page:

Gallups Bribe

Worse, he had people on his staff, including Mike Shoesmith, attack anyone who gave it a bad review. Typically, those people are accused of being “Jews with an agenda, who never read the book”. Gallups lied.

16.  CLAIMING THAT VIDEOS HE POSTS HAVE “GONE VIRAL”. Gallups is an egomaniac and often claims that videos that he appears in or has created have “gone viral”. You can check for yourself on youtube.com. The vast majority of his videos have less than 3000 views. There a few with substantially more, but none that have truly gone viral. Today, a video needs a minimum of 5,000,000 hits in order to be considered “viral”. Not a single one of his videos has even come close to that number. Gallups lied.


Gallups appeared with Alan Colmes and denied ever calling the President the antichrist.

Anyone who has followed Gallups at all knows that this is untrue.

In yesterday’s interview, Carl Gallups says people are fed up with Obama and are calling Obama the Antichrist and not recanting on it. At 4:55 of the tape below, Carl Gallups remarks that Jeff Kuhner said “Obama is the Antichrist” on his show. In the article below Gallups, on PPSimmons, says he himself has made many videos saying Obama’s the “affirmed candidate” for end times Antichrist

Is Obama the anti-Christ? It’s irresponsible not to speculate, birther pastor says. A birther minister who gained Internet notoriety for his claim that the Bible foretold Barack Obama as the anti-Christ says he doesn’t deserve the mockery. Carl Gallups advanced the theory, based on Aramaic translations of biblical texts, that Jesus spoke the current president’s name when he prophesized in Luke 10:18 that he “saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.” According to the theory, which Gallups says he did not develop but promoted, the Aramaic translation of that passage would be: “I beheld Satan as baraq u-bama.”


Gallups Defends Claims Obama is Anti-Christ as Biblical Fact

Pastor’s Video Insinuates Obama is the Antichrist

I can’t say with certainty that Gallups actually believes that the President is the antichrist, but he has said it on several occasions for several years. Gallups lied.

18.  CLAIMING THAT THE MARICOPA COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE IS DOING A SEPARATE “INVESTIGATION”. Gallups has repeatedly stated that the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office was using its full resources as part of a criminal investigation which stemmed from the CCP “investigation”. If true, someone should tell the Sheriff’s Office, which denies that any such investigation is taking place or that any taxpayer funds were being utilized. Gallups lied.


19.  CLAIMING THAT THE BIRTH CERTIFICATE ISSUE HAD BEEN “SETTLED”. Gallups has repeatedly stated that the issue of the birth certificated has been settled.

Technically, this is not a lie. The issue of the birth certificate IS settled. As the Hawaiian DOH has certified both the COLB and the LFBC, there is no issue about the validity of the birth certificate. But Gallups is stating that it is settled that it is a forgery. This was Gallups way of saying that the “investigation” had moved past the birth certificate into other things to show that Zullo was “miles ahead of obots”. It was also done in a an attempt to cut people off from calling his show about the stupidity of the CCP “investigation”. However, the fact is that the balance of the “investigation” is based on the truth of a conclusion that is patently false and absurd. Further, any good investigator would never cut off evidence that is pertinent to the investigation. Gallups knows that the conclusions of the CCP are far from “settled”. Gallups lied.

20.   CLAIMING THAT THE WORK DONE BY RC AND NBC HAS BEEN DEBUNKED. Gallups saidAll the talk about the Xerox machine and reproducing certain anomalies found on the White House birth certificate has now been completely, forensically, and in 100% evidentiary fashion – debunked. The entire Obot minutia portfolio has been completely eviscerated. Their smokescreen has been obliterated. To all of those who have had deep concerns about the matter of the authenticity of the birth certificate – you have been vindicated. You were right! This will eventually come to light. Be patient.” Zullo has never commented on RC and NBC’s work, other than to say that it is “of no concern”. The CCP has not provided one scrap of evidence to suggest that the CCP has even tried to reproduce their results. Gallups lied.

21.  CLAIMING THAT OBOTS ARE SUSPECTS AND/OR PERSONS OF INTEREST. Gallups has repeatedly stated that some of us are suspects and/or persons of interest, although he has not specifically identified anyone by name. This is usually followed by some statement that we are scared, or going crazy or some other such nonsense. The fact is that there is not now, nor has there ever been a criminal investigation regarding the President’s birth certificate or eligibility. Further, there is no crime that has been committed. As such, none of us can be suspects or persons of interest based on a non- existent investigation by a used car salesman. There is a not a single person I know that gives any credence to anything that Zullo or Gallups have to say, so none of us are panicking or going crazy, or any doing anything other than laughing. At the presentation that Gallups gave in birtherpalooza, he said that there was enough evidence to convict people and that people were going to go to jail over the birth certificate. That was over two years ago. We are still waiting. Based on that evidence the Attorney General of Arizona rejected a call to prosecute, calling the evidence “speculation”. Gallups lied.

22.  CLAIMING THAT STEVE STOCKMAN AND OTHER CONGRESSMAN ARE “ON BOARD” WITH THE ELIGIBILITY ISSUE. Gallups has repeatedly stated that Congressman Steve Stockman and other Congressman were “on board” and willing to press the eligibility issue in the House of Representatives. To date, not a single person in either the Senate or the House of Representatives have gone public with any eligibility concerns or presented any bills to either chamber. At one time, Stockman allegedly agreed to call into Freedom Friday to affirm his support on the issue. He never called. Maybe he will this Friday. Don’t hold your breath. Gallups lied.

23.  CLAIMING THAT TERRY LAKIN WAS COURT MARTIALED FOR CHALLENGING THE PRESIDENT. Carl Gallups interviewed Terry Lakin. He claims that Lakin was Court Martialed for challenging Obama’s eligibility. That is false. Lakin was Court Martialed for disobeying an order to deploy. He admitted that the order was valid. Gallups lied.

24.  CLAIMING THAT THE JUSTICES ON THE ALABAMA SUPREME COURT COMMENTED ABOUT THE PRESIDENT’S “IDENTIFYING DOCUMENTS”. On Thursday, March 27, 2014, Gallups appeared on “Open Mic” on WEBY and said that the (although he admitted that he was “paraphrasing”) justices had said that the President’s Identifying documents “stunk to high heavens” and they only reason why they could not do the Plaintiffs wanted was that they were hamstrung by Alabama laws. This is blatant attempt to placate the faithful. The lower court’s decision was affirmed without opinion. There were two dissenting and two concurring opinions, which were filed solely in response to the dissenting opinions. Justice Bolin, who wrote the first concurring opinion, makes no mention of the documents. Neither did Justice Bryan, who wrote the second. Gallups made it sound like Justices, collectively, raised significant questions of the President’s eligibility by virtue of the documents. The only questions came from Parker and Moore. Unquestionably, Moore, who is friends with Klaymann, with whom he shares the title of contributor to WND, should have recused himself.

Gallups’ radio appearance also contained many other false statements about the information that was before the Court, including the assertion that Reed Hayes report was presented to the Court by Zullo, whom he described as a recognized expert in document analysis. That is also not true. Gallups lied.
