Why Orly doesn’t have a Hawaiian Birth Certificate

In an article yesterday, Dr. Orly Taitz, DDS, posted the following:

There are few things that are peculiar to HI

1. statute 338 allows foreign born children of Hi residents to get HI birth certificates.

2. BCs can be obtained based on a statement of one relative only

3. You can get a late BC- meaning when you are 20 yo or a 100 yo.

4. Chiyome Fukino  stated that there is a BC on file, but she did not state, how and when it was obtained

a. it could have been one obtained when Obama was 21 yo.

b. it could have been obtained based on a statement of one relative only, who lied

c. the most important thing- she never said that the piece of garbage with an obliterated number, that Obama posted on the Internet is the same document that she has on file, she never said that this piece of garbage that he posted on the net actually came from HI. As a matter of fact her assistant Janet Okubo said that she can’t read what was downloaded from the net.

In reply:

1.The specific law she’s trying to cite is  §338-17.8  Certificates for children born out of State. This law was passed in 1982. It cannot apply to Barack Obama because his birth was registered in 1961. Continue Reading →

Do not feed the trolls (DNFTT)

Troll

Troll

In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts controversial, inflammatory, irrelevant or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum or chat room, with the primary intent of provoking other users into an emotional response or to generally disrupt normal on-topic discussion.

Wikipedia

I’ll be the first to admit that without the trolls, there would far fewer than the 8,391 comments we have on this web site. Nevertheless, if you want to discourage trollishness, the best approach is a a minimal, and non-emotional response. An Internet troll is like someone who pokes an ant hill to watch the ants race out.

So, let’s be human beings, and not ants.

Now if I can just follow my own advice 😉

Trollish techniques, courtesy of aarrgghh:

Madison v. Madison

“Constitutional researcher” P. A. Madison plays fast and loose with his sources.

The two “Madisons” are contemporary self-identified “constitutional researcher” P. A. Madison, pseudonymous author of an article on the Federalist Blog that is the topic for discussion here, and James Madison, framer of the Constitution, Congressman and 4th President of the United States.

This web site recently featured President James Madison in the article James Madison on Birth and Allegiance.

In a speech before the House of Representatives in May of 1789, James Madison said:

It is an established maxim, that birth is a criterion of allegiance. Birth, however, derives its force sometimes from place, and sometimes from parentage; but, in general place is the most certain criterion; it is what applies in the United States.

Abridgment of the Debates of Congress, from 1789 to 1856 From Gales and Seatons’ Annals of Congress; from Their Register of Debates; and from the Official Reported Debates, by John C. Rives By United States. Congress, Thomas Hart Benton

P. A. Madison, on the other hand asserts the opposite, that place of birth alone does not and cannot grant citizenship in his article, Defining Natural-Born Citizen. We know P. A. Madison from an earlier article challenging the citizenship of children born in the United States to illegal aliens, something true today under the Supreme Court decision in United States v. Wong Kim Ark. P. A. Madison disagrees with that decision and presents an alternate view of history (from the legal and judicial survey in the Wong decision) in which parentage matters.

The Fall of the House of Birther

While there never was any credible objection to President Obama’s constitutional eligibility to be president, some issues were raised that looked good, at least until they were examined. Over the course of the last 6 months, this web site has examined these issues, digging to find if there were some substance in them, exposing fraud and replacing rumor with fact.

People believe what they want to believe, and in the face of that fact simply showing that there is no basis for the belief is not enough. Refutation, when possible, is better. Many contributors here and elsewhere have searched the pubic record for information for refutation. I have searched as well. Here are the results of that search, addressing the four major objections to Obama’s eligibility:

  1. President Obama was born in Kenya
  2. President Obama renounced his US Citizenship and became an Indonesian citizen
  3. President Obama traveled to Pakistan when travel to US citizens was banned.
  4. A president of the United States must be the child of US Citizen parents, and President Obama’s father was British.

President Obama was born in Kenya

This was always an implausible scenario and it probably wouldn’t have persisted except for a tape recording, with barely audible sections in an African language, that purports to be Sarah Obama (the President’s paternal step grandmother) saying that she was present when President Obama was born. The tape recording, available on this web site, and its associated transcript by researcher Greg Doudna, clearly shows in its complete and unedited version, that the speaker is saying President Obama was born in Hawaii. The details and evidence are in my article: Sarah Obama Speaks! Continue Reading →

Where Obama was born

Was it in Kenya? Was it in Canada? Was it at home in Hawaii, attested to by one parent?

No. It seems President Obama was born exactly where we always thought he was, at the Kapi’olani Medical Center in Honolulu.

Kapi’olani letter (image from WorldNetDaily)

The letter was read aloud at the Health Center’s 100th anniversary gala [link, see Page 6] , attended by such dignitaries as Republican Governor Lingle. Not only do we have President Obama’s own letter stating the place of his birth, but the confirmation of the hospital through their publication and celebration of the fact. See the celebration, Governor Lingle’s proclamation and the reading of the letter from President Obama by Hawaii Congressman Neil Abercrombie.

[The persistent Internet rumor that Barack Obama’s half sister Maya claimed that he was born at Queens Hospital, is not true.]

Truth and Transparency

I must admit: this one was a shock.

Ball, LA

Ball, LA

WorldNetDaily, a front organization for a few right-wing millionaires trying to build mind share through manipulation of the news, has launched what it calls its “truth and transparency” campaign. “Lies and smears” is what it really is, as WorldNetDaily has been associated time and time again with publishing outright lies (such as the infamous “travel ban” to Pakistan).

The sign disturbs me because it is promoting class warfare–not class warfare between the rich and poor, not class warfare between liberals and conservatives, but class warfare between people with common sense and the stupid. Continue Reading →
