Breaking: Carl Gallups Sworn in 
by Sheriff Arpaio as “Special Deputy”
by Sharon Rondeau

(P&E) — In a tweet issued between late Wednesday and early Thursday, radio host and reporter of the Maricopa County Cold Case Posse investigation into Obama’s long-form birth certificate and Selective Service registration form Carl Gallups announced that in a meeting with Maricopa County Sheriff Joseph M. Arpaio on Wednesday, he was sworn in as “Special Deputy for the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office.”

On Wednesday, Gallups had tweeted that he would be meeting with Arpaio “in coming days” and that followers of the story should “”stay tuned for something awesome.”

The photo contained the announcement: “This JUST in! Carl Gallups met with Sheriff Joe Arpaio today for about two hours. During this time Carl was honored to be sworn in as “Special Deputy for the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office.” Carl will be giving us special updates in following days and weeks resulting from this meeting. Stay tuned everyone!”

At the beginning of the investigation, Zullo also was deputized by Arpaio, as have other citizens serving the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office on any of the 41 volunteer posses under Arpaio’s direction, the Cold Case Posse being one.

Gallups is a pastor in Northwest Florida, host of the weekly radio show “Freedom Friday,” and a close follower of the investigation launched in September 2011 by the Cold Case Posse under Arpaio’s direction.

A second press conference on July 17, 2012 revealed that the standard of probable cause in the forgery of the birth certificate had been surpassed. The press conference was punctuated by Arpaio’s request to Congress to launch its own investigation into the posse’s findings.

Congress took no action, and the media showed little curiosity as to how and why forgeries of a sitting president’s only publicly-available documents had been manufactured, instead vilifying the messengers. [...] Continue reading here.
