Skip to comments.Did threats silence media on Obama probe?
Posted on 03/07/2012 7:44:33 PM PST by Smokeyblue
The lead investigator in Sheriff Joe Arpaios review of the authenticity of Barack Obamas birth certificate today unloaded a bombshell about the case: that he was told by sources members of the media were threatened with federal investigations should they continue to report on the birth certificate issue.
Lead investigator Mike Zullo told WND that as he was preparing information to be presented to the public it was clear that the mainstream media was not going to be in attendance at the sheriffs scheduled new conference, where he revealed facts suggesting both fraud and forgery in the image of a Hawaiian birth certificate that the White House released as proof positive of Obamas eligibility for office last year.
During our investigation, we actually were told [that media] had been threatened with FTC investigations. Commentators [had been] threatened with their jobs, Zullo said. The threats were so intimidating that some individuals quit their positions over safety concerns for their families, he said.
So the problem became to get the information to the American public in spite of an intentional media blackout, since citizens still must make critical leadership decisions about their government through the election process.

“Zullo told WND that he had no interest in working on an ebook, but was faced with the question about how to get the information to the American people absent national media coverage.”
Why would anyone in the media feel threatened by an investigation? They are all clean and law abiding citizens with no embarrassing moments in their past, I would assume.
Abuse of power not befitting the Office of the President of the United States.
Isn’t this the same thing that happened in 2008 as reported by Canada Free Press?
In all seriousness, just how credible is WND these days ? I know their history and I read Poe’s book a long time ago and they’ve been right in the past but how about now ? Their site seems to go for the sensational but also often has some pretty whacky stuff too.
Makes the timing and nature of Andrew Breitbart’s untimely passing all the more curious.
Compared to who?
No one has actually stepped up and verified that this happened to them or produced anything to support or verify that it happened.
Just the usual anonymous sources saying things and stuff..
Yup. That's how Stalin did it.
“In all seriousness, just how credible is WND these days ?”
I agree — there’s some very interesting theories out there about why WND has a seat in the WH press pool.
I didn’t know that when Barry the Kenyan Guy said he was going to “fundamentally transform” this country that he meant he was going to turn it into a fascist police state. We’re in a heap of trouble.
I believe it. It is not JUST the MSM as though the MSM is one single entity. The MSM is comprised of print, audio, and visual as in Newspaper/magazine, radio, and television as well various and assorted new media resources. This comprises millions of people that have to be kept in line to tout the Leftist propaganda, and not vary from that which is demanded of them.
It would take extreme measures to keep that many people in line to present, and promote the lies they subject us to daily. No defectors means they are afraid for their lives IMO.
I’d still like to know who is on the other end of that telephone line to Chucky Schumer every single morning of the year. Who is that person telling Schumer what the days mantra, the days talking points are?
Thanks for that link.
The talking points come from lucifer.
” - - - During our investigation, we actually were told [that media] had been threatened with FTC investigations. Commentators [had been] threatened with their jobs, Zullo said.

Will the FBI turn into the modern day equivalent of the Gestapo?
Will there be another “Fast and Furious” style plan this time to forcibly control the MSM?
Were Eric-the-Holder’s ATF merely the shock troop trainees for 5 more years of Obamanation?
What a great time to be a truth-searching Journalist! Be the first in your office to discover how the first American Dictator took over America with help from “Both” political parties! Yes, indeed!
BTW, since the MSM has ALWAYS been the number one fan of Bolshevik Chairman Obama, why would Obama dictate that the MSM be silenced?
Oh! I forgot: Obama thinks that he is a Dictator, and that is what Dictators are supposed to do. My bad!
BTW, BTW, did you notice in the latest MSM poll that Obama received a 54 % job approval vote from women?
I guess that American Women love to be dictated to. (They have sure fooled me!)
Right, it just sounds like that coming out of your mouth!!!
Sadly, I beleive it.
Except Stalin didn't threaten; he "disappeared" people. Or you could just be crossing the street, walking home late at night, and drop dead on the sidewalk.
That kind of thing would never happen here.
No better than president for life Hugo Chavez and disappeared journalists.
So what’s gonna happen from this? Nothing. We live in the most corrupt democracy. (I know it’s a republic but it acts as a democracy). It certainly does not respect the Constitution.
As an old investigative reporter, I still want names, dates, places, etc.
While one can write what Roth and Hagmann said, you need more than “he said, she said” when dealing with Obama and his marxist minions.
Breitbart understood this and tried his best to present physical proof-documentation-evidence. That he used this investigative technique is a credit to his integrity, and will be one of his longest lasting legacies to younger journalists.
Or walking outside your home...
He’s altering/editing public records, i.e. the White House transcript, that reflect unfavorably upon him.
His office did it just recently and there’s no telling how often its been done, with the `Fourth Estate’ in his pocket.
That’s the way a tyrant or oligarchy operates. That kind of thing should never happen here either but it is happening.
Why don't you make some phone calls and get back with us?
Like I said, history clearly shoes the People can reach a limit. And, well, in this case, the People will clearly reach a limit.
In the article it keeps mentioning the “liberal” media. Is there another media I don’t know about?
This also explains why Ego-reilly, Hannity, Rush and every republican politician wouldn’t talk about it. This machine that took over this counry’s government is very powerful.
There’s a great bumper sticker in there somewhere!!!
American Women LOVE to be dictated to.
They give Obama a 54 % job approval rating!
not only “shoes”, but “shows”, too! vey series!
There are millions and millions of people who want obama to be president for life. I knew people talking about working to get him re-elected BEFORE he was sworn in.
Well duh! As Netenyahu says, If it walks like a duck,etc it is a duck. We are so screwed.
To get onto The Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping List you need to merely threaten to report me to the Admin if I dont add you to the list...
lol, ok, I see I won’t have to report you :)
I would not put my life on the line for the veracity of WND even though they are often correct. I would for Sheriff Arapio. I trust Joe Arapio, I do not trust the media nor the President.

That's what you think.
That's what the German people thought before '33.
The Russian people knew better. Before Stalin, they had the example of Lenin and the Bolsheviks to remind them
There is something even more dangerous to this crowd than death itself.
Ridicule, defamation, carreer destruction, and having to get a 'real' job.
The media lackeys of the Administration who are highly placed in their carreers make very good money, enjoy prestige and access to the seats of power.
Losing that, being driven out by their masters is even more of a threat than just being shot. No 'wetwork' required, because the rest will play along if some individual won't, and will do the dirty work of destroying the carreer of anyone who gets out of line for the administration because failure to do so would expose them as complicit.
There are good odds that the DOJ has some goods on most of the major media players as well, and things only whispered about would be front page above the fold ASAP to villify them in the minds of the sheeple and destroy any credibility.
The media are all about impressions and perceptions, and the masses can be whipped into a frenzy against someone overnight--even, if not especially, one of their own.
Abuse of power that’s a million times worse than anything Nixon did, too.
Where are Woodward and Bernstein these days?
Hell, that’s how FDR did it. Read the histories of the 30s and the New Deal. The abuses of power by the executive were simply staggering beyond belief.
. . . . Ignore the SP.

"The threats were so intimidating that some individuals quit their positions over safety concerns for their families, he said."
This is so bad...
This is an age when the outrageous improbability of a crime is the first defense.
Like the BATF running guns to Drug Cartels...
Like the DEA laundering money for Drug kingpins...
Like the US Government dumping half a billion taxpayer dollars into a 'solar energy' company well on its way to bankruptcy with a seriously flawed business model (and doubtless getting plenty of kickbacks along the way).
...just for starters.
I guess I forgot the /sarc tag.
Read Post #20 again. Then read it again slowly to the end.
Very sly, this ponygirl. Well done!
What Good Can a Handgun Do Against An Army?
” - - - Theres a great bumper sticker in there somewhere!!!”
Great idea! Put me down for 4 when you get them printed.
BTW, maybe add in something about “Domination by Obamanation is why Women vote for Obama.” Needs work, so see what you can do.
