Hawaii lawmakers want to make big $$$ on birth certificate

According to the Associated Press, five Hawaii representatives have proposed a new law that would allow the State to provide Barack Obama’s birth records at $100 a pop.

We saw previously that Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie’s attempt to slap down the birthers with evidence from the State Archives ran afoul of existing state law, but the legislature could fix that.

Rep. Rida Cabanilla, says the fee would help offset the extra work by state employees who handle frequent phone calls and e-mails from people who believe Obama wasn’t born in Hawaii.

$100 is rather steep, but I really would like a framed copy of President Obama’s birth certificate on my wall as a trophy.

    “$100 is rather steep, but I really would like a framed copy of President Obama’s birth certificate on my wall as a trophy.”

    This sounds like an opportunity for Obama’s re-election committee to make some money, too.

    I don’t think it is enough. I say make it $1,000 to make it a more serious purchase and not a novelty item.

    In view of the budget issues faced by state and federal governments, there should be a tax levied on birther postings on the internet. I’m not sure if it should be on a per word basis or a per untrue word basis. It probably doesn’t matter, since all words typed by birthers are untrue, including “the” and and”

    It seems like they’re pretending privacy laws aren’t there. You can’t just start selling people’s birth records without their permission.

    I agree entirely. If the birthers are stupid enough to keep asking the same questions over and over again and wasting the state’s time, it’s only fair that the state of Hawaii be allowed to soak the knuckle-dragging morons for as much as it can to cover the costs of putting up with their nonsense.

    Obama’s birth certificate is private only because of Hawaii’s privacy statutes. There is nothing to keep Hawaii from changing its laws.

    The hospital record of Obama’s birth, on the other hand, is protected by HIPAA.

    I guess I’m a little naive here. Common sense tells me it would be wrong if not illegal to make an arbitrary law making it legal to sell an individual’s (a living one at that) vital records. Just flies in the face of what we know about personal privacy, ID theft and the law applying to everyone.

    Sean: States can choose whether to make their birth records open or closed. Some states allow anyone to order a birth certificate. That may be bad policy, but it’s allowed, The proposal is to make an exception to Hawaii’s closed records for “persons of civic prominence”, whiich they define as anyone who needs to prove citizenship to run for office. That isn’t limiited to Obama, but could include someone born in Hawaii running for school board in Ohio, for example.

    Old friend gary Kreep is still trying to pimp this issue for donations…I just received this e-mail again regarding this issue….

    To My Truth-Seeking Patriot Friend:

    When he announced that he would produce Barack Hussein Obama’s Hawaiian birth certificate, newly inaugurated Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie, a political confidant of Mr. Obama, said that the “birth certificate issue will have ‘political implications’ for the next presidential election that we simply ‘cannot have.'”

    Too bad Governor Abercrombie didn’t take the time to investigate and see if there was a long-form, doctor-issued birth certificate on file for Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. anywhere in the Hawaiian birth archive before making that statement. Because his search resulted in an admission that no long-form birth certificate for Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. appears to exist in Hawaii.

    Finally, those Americans who were convinced that Abercrombie was going to produce what MILLIONS of Americans have been asking for—Obama’s long-form, original, doctor-witnessed birth certificate would suddenly appear and a million “birthers” would be embarrassed. That was then. This is now.

    Governor Abercrombie suggested in a published interview that the long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate for Barack Obama may not exist within the vital records maintained by the Hawaii Department of Health. Questioned by the media, he admitted that his search failed to produce the elusive birth certificate.

    The United States Justice Foundation (USJF) has been hammering this question home for over two years. Either Barack Obama is a natural-born American citizen, or he is not! Either a legitimate Hawaiian birth certificate exists, or it does not! This is your fight. We win it, or we lose it, now. We need your financial support to finish this battle. Because of an Obama friend, we may be close to obtaining the truth. PLEASE DONATE your best possible gift to help us to derail Governor Abercrombie’s efforts to convince other States that they don’t have to ask Presidential candidates to produce documentation to prove that they are eligible to run.

    The new Governor of Hawaii, Mr. Abercrombie, told the media that: “”What bothers me is that some people who should know better are trying to use this for political reasons. Maybe I’m the only one in the country that could look you right in the eye right now and tell you, ‘I was here when that baby was born.'” Notice that Abercrombie did not say that he saw either the Obamas, or their son, only that he was in Hawaii when Barack Hussein Obama, Jr., was born… somewhere.

    The Hawaiian Governor told the HONOLULU STAR ADVERTISER that he was searching, within the Hawaii Department of Health, to find definitive records that would prove Mr. Obama was born in Hawaii, because the continuing eligibility controversy could hurt Barack Obama’s chances of re-election in 2012.

    Governor Abercrombie insists: “It actually exists in the archives, written down.”

    However, he has NOT produced document number one—the actual, long form, birth certificate!

    The United States Justice Foundation (USJF) has been hammering this question home for over two years. Either Barack Obama is a natural-born American citizen, or he is not! Either a legitimate Hawaiian birth certificate exists, or it does not! This is your fight. We win it, or we lose it, now. We need your financial support to finish this battle. Because of an Obama friend, we may be close to obtaining the truth. PLEASE DONATE your best possible gift to help us to derail Governor Abercrombie’s efforts to convince other States that they don’t have to ask Presidential candidates to produce documentation to prove that they are eligible to run.

    Now let’s review what the Hawaiian Governor Abercrombie has promised. He will get to the bottom of this so it will not hurt Mr. Obama politically. He was going to, immediately release Mr. Obama’s Hawaiian birth certificate. YET, this long-form, hospital-generated, birth certificate has NEVER been produced! Do you know why?

    It was, after all, one of the governor’s campaign promises. Other States expected this governor to find the birth certificate and, one way or another, solve the eligibility question: He didn’t, because he couldn’t find it. Abercrombie reminds me of Clara Peller. Remember her? She did the Wendy’s commercial: “Where’s the beef?” Where is Clara when we need her shouting: “Where’s the birth certificate?”

    Could Mr. Abercrombie’s folly be the loose thread that begins the literal unraveling of the Obama stay in the Oval Office?

    The United States Justice Foundation (USJF) has been hammering this question home for over two years. Either Barack Obama is a natural-born American citizen, or he is not!

PLEASE DONATE your best possible gift to help us to derail Governor Abercrombie’s efforts to convince other States that they don’t have to ask Presidential candidates to produce documentation to prove that they are eligible to run.

    Acknowledging that Barack Obama, Jr., has not produced a long-form, doctor-witnessed, birth certificate, Neil Abercrombie recently said that he intends to produce and release Mr. Obama’s long-form, hospital issued, birth certificate from Kapiolani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital. Governor Abercrombie added that he is upset, because several States are enacting legislation that will force Presidential candidates to document that they are eligible to run before their names can be placed on the ballot for the office of President of the United States.

    THE GOVERNOR STILL CANNOT PRODUCE IT!!

    If this document does not exist, as Barack Obama’s spending of a reported $2 million to block the efforts of many to get it seems to indicate, it begs the question: what is Governor Abercrombie going to produce? And, will the ink be dry on the document when he does?

    In light of what is taking place in Hawaii, a million Clara Pellers should be screaming: “Where’s the birth certificate?” Remember: there was a reason why Barack Hussein Obama has spent a reported $2 million to conceal the history of his identity. All that the American people want is the TRUTH, not $2 million in rhetoric, “spin,” and legal “mumbo-jumbo.”

    In fact, at the very least, the American people have a right to demand the truth, as the 1st Amendment to the Constitution of the United States guarantees us—We, The People—the right to address our grievances to the government of the United States. Thus far, our government officials have violated the Constitution by refusing to listen to that grievance… and require that Barack Hussein Obama produce the documentation that the United States Constitution requires of him.

    Sadly, it appears that the federal court system will continue to shield the truth. The lawsuits filed by a myriad of plaintiffs, including those that USJF has filed, funded, or otherwise supported (6 in all), demanding that the government listen to our grievance in a court of law, have run into “judicial roadblocks” in every case. The United States Justice Foundation has filed legal brief after legal brief, funded suit after suit (6, so far, including two that we are currently handling), yet the federal government continues to stonewall us.

    Please help us use Governor Abercrombie’s faux paux get to the bottom of this issue. It is very possible that Mr. Obama is ILLEGALLY sitting as the “President” of the United States. That’s why I am emailing you today—to ask you to assist us with a financial DONATION to help us to get to the truth.

    I know that I can count on you. Please CLICK the green Donation button here.

    Thank you for your RESPONSE TODAY TO HELP USJF to get to the real truth about Barack Obama’s eligibility to serve as the Commander-in-Chief.

    Gary G. Kreep, Esq.
    Executive Director
    United States Justice Foundation

    P. S. Nothing is quite as important. Without his original birth certificate, the available evidence shows that Barack Obama cannot legally serve as President of the United States. That means that everything that he has signed—laws, nominations, Executive Orders—in the past two years is NULL AND VOID! Please assist us with your most generous donation today. Our legal staff is over-taxed in fighting this eligibility issue. Please remember that all contributions to USJF are tax-deductible.

    The United States Justice Foundation (USJF) does not have the deep pockets of the State of Hawaii, or the White House, so we will need to use the national media to run ads to lay out what we know about the Obama birth question, and to demand that Governor Abercrombie fulfill his promise. This is your fight. We win it, or we lose it, now. We need your financial support to finish this battle. PLEASE DONATE your best gift possible, to help us to derail Governor Abercrombie’s efforts to convince other States that they don’t have to ask Presidential candidates to produce documentation to prove that they are eligible to run.

    Before Obama came along, the debate was more about genealogy enthusiasts and the rights of adopted persons over and against concerns about fraud. I have read that states with open birth records do not have a higher rate of vital records fraud than other states although that seems counterintuitive (and perhaps that is old data).

    Doc, the birthers take the WND story, and its later incarnations as gospel. On other site they still claim that Abercrombie has “admitted” that no birth certificate exists for the President. No matter how much evidence you show them that the original statement never said that and WND lied as usual, they refuse to believe it.

    This is just the newest & bestest birther zombie lie that is now taken as gospel truth from one end of birtherstan to another. It doesn’t matter that Abercrombie (in a somewhat poor choice of words) said the opposite in that they have the record “written down”.

    From what I hear, it’s to be a more generic BC.
    One that doesn’t disclose all information, just some basic facts.
    The blog called “obamas garden” had me laughing hard about it though.
    There, they claim it probably won’t have a seal or be certified and therefore, be worthless.
    Ya gotta laugh: We got them one certified with a seal and they didn’t believe it.
    So I doubt they’ll believe this one and that many will cough up the money.
    But there will be enough of them to do just this: WND, Berg, Taitz, Corsi and others.
    The state of Hawaii won’t make a lot, but at least this should cover their expenses from now on for requests.
    Sounds like a good idea, though I think THEY should have put it on Ebay with no “Buy it now” price. Straight 30 day auction.
    That would create some buzz and much more money.

    We know Gov. Lingle checked to make sure it existed. But, if I understand correctly, existing laws prevent her or any other governor from gaining access to it, much less have it released.

    In some ways, it seems like a good idea. Hawaii found a demand that they can satisfy for a price.

    The main problem is, birthers are never satisfied. Charging for the document is clever, but back up a bit. Do birthers really care about or want this document, despite what they say? Do birthers want to just verify Obama was born in the US, or do they simply want to see him out of office?

    This isn’t about a birth certificate. It’s mainly about skin color.

    Really? And you know this for sure? Since no one has ever commented on the long form, you don’t know for sure. What we do know for sure is that President Obama was BORN in HI. Why do we know this? Because of the COLB, the index data, the newspaper accounts, the State Department data, but most of all the statement by Dr. Fukino stating that the President was born in HI. Not counting that former governor Lingle stated that the President was born in HI and proof existed of this fact. So you as usual you have nothing….

    A quote from the governor where he says that the long form is not in the archive or no birth information exists for the President in Hawaii…Unless you hear that from him you are only speculating….And the last time I checked speculation is not evidence nor is it even enough for a court to issue a subpoena to investigate any further. Offically the state of HI has stated that the President was born in HI and that the records exist that proves that he was born in HI. Which means you have nothing but your unfounded beliefs…

    Abercrombie is very fortunate in his stumbling and bumbling that the previous REPUBLICAN administration in Hawaii went to such lengths to confirm that Barack Hussein Obama II’s birth records were in order and on file.

    “There have been numerous requests for Senator Barack Obama’s official birth certificate. State law prohibits the release of a certified birth certificate to persons who do not have a tangible interest in the vital record.
    Therefore, I, as Director of Health for the State of Hawaii, along with the Registrar of Vital Statistics who has stauatory authority to oversee and maintain these type of records, HAVE PERSONALLY SEEN AND VERIFIED THAT THE HAWAII STATE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH HAS SENATOR OBAMA’S ORIGINAL BIRTH CERTIFICATE ON RECORD, in accordance with state policies and procedures.
    No state official, including Governor Lingle has ever instructed that this vital record be handled in a manner different from any other record in possession of the state of Hawaii.”–Dr. Chiyome Fukino [former]Director of Health, State of Hawaii, October 31, 2008.

    I, Dr. Chiyome Fukino, Director of the Hawaii Department of Health, have seen the ORIGINAL VITAL RECORDS maintained on file by the HawaII State Department of Health verifying that Barack Hussein Obama was born in Hawaii and is a NATURAL BORN AMERICAN CITIZEN. I have nothing further to add to this statement or my original statement issued eight months ago.”–Dr. Chiyome Fukino, [former]Director of the Hawaii Department of Health

    “You know, during the campaign of 2008, I was in the mainland campaigning for Senator McCain. This issue kept coming up so much in the campaign, and again, I think it’s one of those issues that is simply a distraction from the more critical issues that are facing the country.
    And so I had my health director, who is a physician by background, go PERSONALLY VIEW THE BIRTH CERTIFICATE IN THE BIRTH RECORDS OF THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH, and we issued a news release at that time stating that the president was, in fact, born at Kapiolani Hospital in Honolulu, Hawaii. And that’s just a fact. And yet people continue to call up and e-mail and want to make it an issue. And I thnk it’s again, a horrible distraction for the country by the people who continue this.
    IT’S BEEN ESTABLISHED. HE WAS BORN HERE.”–Governor Linda Lingle, radio interview, May 2, 2010.

    You guys still fail to use the sniff test OR pure logic. Explain a few things for me, Dr. Conspiracy. Unlike Kreep, btw, I am NOT a person that thinks that “Everything done by BHO as president is invalid.” It is surely valid.

    But he surely has defrauded the American public, and you can thank Abercrombie for again making an issue. Please explain:

    1) How the Nordyke twins were born after Obama but have a certificate numbered before him. It is up to 1.5+ day difference in timing. Wait, you tried that already, and couldn’t explain it. Yet people are crazy to continue to ask reasonable questions that no one has [can] answer?

    2) How does Linda Lingle know that BHO was born at Kapi’olani? If the documents are protected by “privacy” laws, how does she know this? Does she have a tangible interest? Is that interest more than a citizen over whom Obama [attempts to] lord? Is that interest more than those that ran against him in the presidential race? The whole refusal to release the real, original records is an absolutely shady and illegal endeavor covered up by those who continually back this deceiving president. They have covered up and distorted UIPA as well as the current laws, which DO in fact allow for releasing such documents. Obama already gave up his privacy right by releasing the so-called COLB, anyway.

    There is no record at Kapi’olani. It’s been obvious for more than 2 years to me. If there were, he would release that record (or allow them to) and not a single other piece of information would be included — that’s right THERE IS NO PRIVACY invasion by Kapi’olani confirming it officially. Why haven’t they? There’s no record.

    This is the most obvious deduction from logic and true facts that can possibly done. It’s amazing that you won’t admit it and that the cronies here have resorted to name-calling because they can’t answer it either.

    3) Will you not admit, as an honest man (at least this I hope), that Abercrombie was fully aware of what Lingle had said, the “conspiracies” and the stories about his beloved Obama, and that his mission was in fact a swelling of pride until he found out the inconvenient truth? Do you REALLY think he makes headlines and then bows out like a bitch just days later because of “privacy” laws? That was absolutely laughable and stinks to high hell.

    Abercrombie knows, he’s embarrassed, and feels like an idiot for selling the president out / making everyone backing Obama all this time look that much dumber.

    You should be embarrassed too. That is, if you don’t come clean. Last chance, Dr.

    Spare the name calling and answer the questions, people. I’d appreciate it, if you can.

    so you’re going to avoid the question. Youre the one who claimed he said something he didn’t. You do realize the long form doesn’t change the requirements for eligibility. We know he’s 35 years old or more we know he was born in hawaii. You also know there is an even longer form than the long form. Abercrombie was looking for something in the birth records that he would have been able to legally show. He never said anything about the long form you are the one who made an assumption

    I congratulate you for getting something right that some of your fellows do not.

    But he surely has defrauded the American public, and you can thank Abercrombie for again making an issue.

    President Obama would only be defrauding the public if he knew he was not born in the United States. He obviously has no first-hand knowledge where he was born. Why wouldn’t he rely, as would any of us, on what his birth certificate says?

    Please explain:1) How the Nordyke twins were born after Obama but have a certificate numbered before him. It is up to 1.5+ day difference in timing. Wait, you tried that already, and couldn’t explain it. Yet people are crazy to continue to ask reasonable questions that no one has [can] answer?

    Why are you questioning Obama’s certificate number and not that of the Nordyke twins? We know the certificates were numbered at the end of the process. There is no reason to think that certificates have to be in any particular order.

    2) How does Linda Lingle know that BHO was born at Kapi’olani? If the documents are protected by “privacy” laws, how does she know this? Does she have a tangible interest? Is that interest more than a citizen over whom Obama [attempts to] lord?

    I cannot say for sure how Governor Lingle knew where President Obama was born. She did attend the Kapi’olani 100th Centennial dinner in January of 2009 where Obama’s birth at the hospital was applauded. That is the only public source I know of. One can only speculate about private sources. Whatever the source, it points to President Obama being born at the Kapi’olani hospital.

    Is that interest more than those that ran against him in the presidential race? The whole refusal to release the real, original records is an absolutely shady and illegal endeavor covered up by those who continually back this deceiving president.

    Actually, the law requires things to go exactly as they have gone. To do otherwise is what would be illegal.

    They have covered up and distorted UIPA as well as the current laws, which DO in fact allow for releasing such documents.

    That is your opinion, but I would trust the Hawaii Attorney General to know the law better than you.

    Obama already gave up his privacy right by releasing the so-called COLB, anyway.

    It’s not a matter of “privacy rights.” Hawaiian law forbids the release. There is nothing about the exception you try to create.

    There is no record at Kapi’olani. It’s been obvious for more than 2 years to me. If there were, he would release that record (or allow them to) and not a single other piece of information would be included — that’s right THERE IS NO PRIVACY invasion by Kapi’olani confirming it officially. Why haven’t they?

    You are engaging in unsupported speculation here. Kapi’olani has released nothing because there is a federal law prohibiting them from doing so. It is not a matter of an invasion of privacy, it is a matter of law and the law does not use such vague and abstract notions such as yours but rather concepts such as “covered entity” and “protected health information”.

    There’s no record.This is the most obvious deduction from logic and true facts that can possibly done.

    Speculation is not a deduction from logic. You might say “obvious conclusion” which is perhaps obvious to you, but fantastic to me, but you are not using deductive logic.

    It’s amazing that you won’t admit it and that the cronies here have resorted to name-calling because they can’t answer it either.

    All posters here are independent individuals and are responsible for their own comments.

    3) Will you not admit, as an honest man (at least this I hope), that Abercrombie was fully aware of what Lingle had said, the “conspiracies” and the stories about his beloved Obama, and that his mission was in fact a swelling of pride until he found out the inconvenient truth?

    Given that this is contrary to what Abercrombie actually said, your version of events is nothing but speculation.

    Do you REALLY think he makes headlines and then bows out like a bitch just days later because of “privacy” laws?

    It’s not privacy laws, it is laws regarding release of vital statistics. I could have told you two years ago that Abercrombie’s quest was doomed because of the law.

    That was absolutely laughable and stinks to high hell.Abercrombie knows, he’s embarrassed, and feels like an idiot for selling the president out / making everyone backing Obama all this time look that much dumber.You should be embarrassed too.

    I’ll answer a few of Joseph Maine’s questions-

    Joseph Maine: 1) How the Nordyke twins were born after Obama but have a certificate numbered before him. It is up to 1.5+ day difference in timing. Wait, you tried that already, and couldn’t explain it. Yet people are crazy to continue to ask reasonable questions that no one has [can] answer?

    It is actually the Nordyke Twin’s certificate that is files out of order. The explanation could be as simple as someone dropping papers and picking them up out of order, or opening one envelope before the other, or they were processed in stacks alphabetically (or reverse-alphabetically). If you have ever worked with paperwork, you will know there are a million different things which could explain this, all without a nefarious origin.
    No birther has explained exactly what misdeed the out of order numbering of Hawaiian birth records is supposed to prove, or why it would affect Obama’s eligibility.

    Joseph Maine: 2) How does Linda Lingle know that BHO was born at Kapi’olani? If the documents are protected by “privacy” laws, how does she know this?

    It was common knowledge at the time, especially in Hawaii, + Dr. Fukino could have told her what was on the BC, + the hospital released a fundraising letter with that info.

    Considering the fact that he WAS born there, what is so shocking or nefarious that the Governor actually knew and stated this?

    Joseph Maine: The whole refusal to release the real, original records is an absolutely shady and illegal endeavor covered up by those who continually back this deceiving president.

    Here you have run off the rails into full-blown Obama Derangement Syndrome. If you have any evidence of wrong-doing (and refusing to release private info to internet kooks in a form that the state no longer issues is not a crime) you should contact law enforcement and make a complaint. It is too important to further waste time posting here while we are in such a constitutional crisis.

It is possible that there is a record of Obama’s birth certificate noted on his drivers license application, or some other place, but Abercrombie and his folks were not looking at original birth certificates.

He never said anything about the long form you are the one who made an assumption

    If Abercrombie was looking for something that can be legally released he could have started with the birth index data including the registration number (10641) – it is allowed under the UIPA law, and there is no need to ask for Obama’s permission.

    DoH refuses to confirm this number.

    Their behavior fits the scenario for unattended birth registration. They can talk generally that something exists in the archive, yet refuse to offer a single piece of evidence which would corroborate the oficial birthplace story (Kapiolani hospital birth).

    There is no doubt in my mind that Abercrombie would have confirmed that his investigators found the original long form birth certificate on file, had that been the case.

    Dr. Conspiracy January 29, 2011 at 10:15 pm #

    Black Lion: A quote from the governor where he says that the long form is not in the archive or no birth information exists for the President in Hawaii…Unless you hear that from him you are only speculating….And the last time I checked speculation is not evidence nor is it even enough for a court to issue a subpoena to investigate any further. Offically the state of HI has stated that the President was born in HI and that the records exist that proves that he was born in HI. Which means you have nothing but your unfounded beliefs…

    I am concerned about the language I see in this discussion. The “state archives” is not the same as the the store of vital statistics. For example, George W. Bush’s birth certificate is reported to be in the Texas state archives, but this would be because someone deposited a copy there. The original birth certificates are a distinct collection.

    So when Abercrombie looked in the state archives, he was not looking in the vital statistics vault.

    nc1:
    Abercrombie was on the mission to confirm that the long form birth certificate from Kapiolani is in the archive.

    He never said that, and you know it. Here is what the original AP story says (December 28, 2010:

    HONOLULU (AP) — Democratic Gov. Neil Abercrombie wants to find a way to release more information about President Barack Obama’s Hawaii birth and dispel conspiracy theories that he was born elsewhere.

    Abercrombie was a friend of Obama’s parents and knew him as a child, and is deeply troubled by the effort to cast doubt on the president’s citizenship.

    The newly elected governor will ask the state attorney general’s office about what can be done to put an end to questions about Obama’s birth documentation from Aug. 4, 1961, spokeswoman Donalyn Dela Cruz said Tuesday.

    “He had a friendship with Mr. Obama’s parents, and so there is a personal issue at hand,” Dela Cruz said. “Is it going to be done immediately? No, the first thing on our list is the economy.”

    It’s unclear what Abercrombie could do because Hawaii’s privacy laws have long barred the release of a certified birth certificate to anyone who doesn’t have a tangible interest.

    Where does that article say that Abercrombie’s “mission” was to confirm that the long-form birth certificate was in the archives? It doesn’t say that. It doesn’t imply that. In fact, it specifically states that Hawaii is barred from releasing it, so why would he look for it? It’s obvious to anyone who isn’t blinded by bias that Abercrombie was looking for something other than the long-form birth certificate to release.

    Therefore, we should expect to find only one document in the archive as the original birth registration – the long form from Kapiolani.

    Nonsense. You really don’t understand anything about vital records, do you? There could be any number of documents in the archives, including the original birth record from the hospital records (not the same as a birth certificate, which is issued by DOH, not by a hospital), clerical records related to the receipt of the hospital information and the issuance of the original birth certificate, records relating to the birth announcement released to the newspapers, the original birth certificate, and copies of any subsequent versions of the birth certificate (in my lifetime New York State has issued at least four different versions of my birth certificate, all on different forms – I would be shocked if there is not a copy of each on file).

    The fact remains that you are a serial liar. Abercrombie has never said any of the things which you have attributed to him.

    You missed the point. At least you, Dr. Conspiracy, are more honest than the rest of the groundlings here at this site (Majority Will) who have to resort to name calling.

    THE POINT IS: There is no privacy concern for OBAMA TO ALLOW the confirmation. In fact, he wouldn’t have had to fool anyone, or produce anything, even the online image (real or not) if he just LET KAPI’OLANI confirm. The reality is that, again, for the 20th time,

    HE WAS NOT BORN THERE.

    That’s deduction. If this is truly about privacy, he should have never even offered up the online COLB!!! What don’t you guys get about this?

    Everything about the actions and the story stinks, and is quite obvious.

    Given all the hiding and lack of forthcoming activity from ALL parties, why would I question the NORDYKE twins certs, when theirs are real original copies and Obama never let anyone inspect his, but just put an image on the internet???

    Again, where is the evidence anyone has asked Hawaii to confirm this info? You keep saying they won’t confirm this trivial detail, or they won’t confirm that trivial detail, but where can you show us that anyone has asked?

    nc1: I don’t question Obama having a birth certificate on file with the DoH – the question is what the origin of that document is: long form from Kapiolani or unattended birth registration?

    Then you acknowledge that Obama was born in Hawaii, as every official says? What difference does it then make whether Obama was born in a hospital or not? Is there some gain to lying about this? How would Obama know anything different than what his mom told him?

    And he was born in Kapiolani- Obama says so, Kapiolani says so, and Governor Lingle said so. There is no evidence to contradict this, only the fevered twisting of clear statements and parsing sentences down to the atom so as to purposefully misunderstand them.

    This comment was not included previously, for whatever reason —

    “You are engaging in unsupported speculation here. Kapi’olani has released nothing because there is a federal law prohibiting them from doing so.”

    You missed the point. At least you, Dr. Conspiracy, are more honest than the rest of the groundlings here at this site (Majority Will) who have to resort to name calling.

    THE POINT IS: There is no privacy concern for OBAMA TO ALLOW the confirmation. In fact, he wouldn’t have had to fool anyone, or produce anything, even the online image (real or not) if he just LET KAPI’OLANI confirm. The reality is that, again, for the 20th time,

    HE WAS NOT BORN THERE.

    That’s deduction. If this is truly about privacy, he should have never even offered up the online COLB!!! What don’t you guys get about this?

    Everything about the actions and the story stinks, and is quite obvious.

    Given all the hiding and lack of forthcoming activity from ALL parties, why would I question the NORDYKE twins certs, when theirs are real original copies and Obama never let anyone inspect his, but just put an image on the internet???

    You guys don’t understand probability OR common sense.

    Joe, the vast majority of Presidents were born at home, in most cases with no one except relatives present. In most cases their births were recorded nowhere but in the family bible. Yet no one complained, then or now.

    Being 4 registration numbers off from the Nordyke twins is pretty good evidence he was born in Kapiolani like them.

    If Barack Hussein Obama II was not born at Kapiolani Hospital, what is your explanation for why a Republican Governor who campaigned for John McCain and who delivered one of Sarah Palin’s endorsement speeches at the Republican National Convention has stated unequivocably: “The President was, in fact, born at Kapiolani Hospital in Honolulu, Hawaii. And that’s just a fact. It’s been established. He was born here.”–[Former]Governor Linda Lingle (R-HI), May 2, 2010.
    Futhermore, why would Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children allow a letter from Barack Hussein Obama II to be published in their Centennial Anniversary publication and state in that letter that Kapiolani was “the place of my birth” if that statement wasn’t true?
    The President of the United States could congratulate a Hawaii medical center on being around for 100 years without specifically naming it as “the place of my birth.”

    The birth registration index is in the public domain – it is different from birth certificates.
    Instead of computer generated printout which can easilly be manipulated we should examine the original handwritten records. It is not so easy to insert a record in the original list.

    Nothing prevents Hawaii DoH to release the original birth index – they do not need Obama’s consent.

    I am sure that Abercrombie knows about it – the same lawyers who told him that the original birth records cannot be made public would have advised him what was possible to publish.

    Haven’t Obama faihful claimed that Abercrombie was looking for something to release to public legally. Why is he hiding the original birth registration index?

    Are you saying that a birth registration document for a legitimate unattended home birth would not be considerd the original vital record?

    My understanding of the phrase “original vital record” is that this is the first document issued regarding birth registration and it contains signatures of people who witnessed birth.

    I am certain that former Governor Lingle, Dr. Fukino and Janice Okubo would be happy to be deposed or to testify in person before a congressional committee of the House of Representatives looking into issues of Obama’s eligibility. However Speaker of the House Boehner, Majority Leader Cantor and the Chairman of the House’s primary investigative Committee, Darrell Issa of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee have all stated publically that Obama’s eligibility and citizenship are off the table for any further examination.
    Kapiolani did the release of a confidential medical information the correct way under HIPAA, they allowed the person named on the record (Barack Hussein Obama II) to make the disclosure. Any of us can disclosure our own confidential medical information and when Kapiolani pujblished a letter from Obama in its Centennial Magazine in which HE disclosed Kapiolani as “the place of my birth” and Kapiolani published that letter, that was proper disclosure by the person named on the medical record, not the hosptial.
    A hospital in California was recently fined $250,000 for releasing confidential birth information about “Octomom,” the woman who gave birth to octuplets.

    The first thing we are trying to determine is whether Obama told the truth about his birthplace. If he lied about it, and the birth was registered as unattended one – it would certainly call for an investigation whether that is based on fact or fiction.

    Three posssibilities:
    1. He was born at Kapiolani
    2. He was born at home in Hawaii but for some reason lied about Kapiolani birth
    3. He was born outside Hawaii, but lied about it and the unattended birth was fraudulently reported.

    Documents in public domain would tell the story. Obama does not have to give his permission. His mother’s passport records prior to 1965 would tell us whether she travelled abroad in 1961 and whether she returned to the USA with a newborn baby.

    The fact that government still refuses to produce it even after the lawsuit was filed tells me that there is something wrong with the official birthplace story. There is no other explanation for hiding public documents.

    The article below demonstrates just how seriously the Hawaii courts uphold patient confidentiality. A hospital employee having a feud with a woman who was a patient at the hospital, published information about her having AIDS, was fired & sent to jail. The prosecutor asked for a one month sentence. The judge gave her a year, even though she had a 5 month old baby.

    I have great respect for my former colleagues at Kapiolani who do their job & just ignore the idiot Birthers.

    NC1 wants to start with a presumption of guilt and try to force President Obama to prove his innocence. In America, every citizen has the presumption of innocence and it is the responsibilty of prosecutors/political opponents to prove guilt.
    Why would Kapiolani risk the embarrassment of publishing a letter naming that facility as Obama’s birthplace if he was not born there?

    Why would Governor Lingle risk the humiliation of naming Kapiolani as Obama’s birthplace if that hospital wasn’t listed on the document when Dr. Fukino reported back to the Governor on finding Obama’s original vital records

    I think that a federal judge appointed by George W. Bush who ruled on an Obama eligibility lawsuit put it best: “A spurious claim questioning the president’s constitutional legitimacy may be protected by the First Amendment, but a court’s placement of its imprimatur upon a claim that is so lacking in factual support that it is frivolous would undoubtedly disserve the public interest.”– US District Court Judge Clay R.

    You fail to acknowledge the possibility that, if the official line about Obama being born at Kapiolani wasn’t true, it means that Obama was lied to as well. Do you think Obama remembers his birth? If he was told all his life by his parents and relatives that he was born at Kapiolani, how would he be expected to know anything different?

    This is why you are a dishonest player. You assume that if anything is amiss about the place of birth, then Obama is guilty of lying. You refuse to consider that he was lied to as well. You are convinced of his wrongdoing, and try to twist the facts to fit your conclusion.

    You are hung up on the registration number, claiming that Hawaii won’t confirm it, but you haven’t shown that they were ever asked to. If they did confirm it, you would still claim forgery or would want a confirmation of the confirmation. You are like birthers Orly, MissTicky, butterdezillion, and Polarik who want endless confirmation of confirmations of confirmations of items they also consider forgeries. Butterdezillion claims that the microfiche containing Obama’s newspaper birth announcements were planted in libraries all across the world. Polarik claims that every photo and video we have seen of Obama during his childhood and teen years are fake. Orly wanted to send in her forensic expert to examine the Supreme Court’s computer system to see if their denial of her suit actually came from them. She wouldn’t take their own word. You are now off in the same state of cuckoo-land with them.

    As for his mother’s passport files, I say the more records released, the better. But you know that she may not have had a passport in 1961, so the government would not be able to produce it. But I’m sure that would only prove it is a cover-up to you.
    You ignore that in the records already produced, the State Dept. investigated in the 1970’s and confirmed her son was born in Hawaii. Or is this a clever forgery as well?

    I am not talking about Hawaii government but a Strunk lawsuit to get passport records for Obama’s mother using the FOIA. It’s been more than two years and the key information (records prior to 1965) is still hidden from public.

    Even under the Hawaii law, Abercrombie can release the birth registration index including registration number – lawyers advising him know about it. Why is he sitting on it – he proclaimed that his goal was to release information supporting the official birthplace stiory.

    Another possiblity is that Obama was not born at Kapiolani and maybe not in the US but his grandparents were able to get a clerk at Kapiolani to create a birth record for him that became a state of Hawaii Certification of Live Birth on August 8, 1961 and Obama doesn’t know the truth of his birth to this day. That would approximate the birth circumstances of President Chester A. Arthur who might have been born on the Canadian side of the border and only a reference in a family bible accounts for the circumstances of his birth.
    That would account for Republican state officials with no desire to aid a leftist Democrat, accurately reporting what is on the original Certification of Live Birth.

Butterdezillion claims that the microfiche containing Obama’s newspaper birth announcements were planted in libraries all across the world. Polarik claims that every photo and video we have seen of Obama during his childhood and teen years are fake. Orly wanted to send in her forensic expert to examine the Supreme Court’s computer system to see if their denial of her suit actually came from them. She wouldn’t take their own word. You are now off in the same state of cuckoo-land with them.As for his mother’s passport files, I say the more records released, the better. But you know that she may not have had a passport in 1961, so the government would not be able to produce it. But I’m sure that would only prove it is a cover-up to you.You ignore that in the records already produced, the State Dept. investigated in the 1970′s and confirmed her son was born in Hawaii. Or is this a clever forgery as well?

    Obama’s mother applied for passport renewal – that is how we know that she had a passport prior to 1965.

    It would be very good news for Obama if it turned out that she did not have passport in 1961, or even if she had a passport, there is no indication that she returned to the USA with a newborn baby. It would be an easy way to confirm that he was not born abroad.

    (sarcasm)
    The government must be full of birthers – they do not want to release the information that would clear suspicions about his birthplace, right? They want to create problems for his reelection.

    nc1: The fact that government still refuses to produce it even after the lawsuit was filed tells me that there is something wrong with the official birthplace story. There is no other explanation for hiding public documents.

    Of course, we’ve all provided other explanations to you multiple times. Your fevered opinions and speculations are just that.

    Face it, a lot of people completely disagree with any of your conclusions and don’t see things the way you do at all. There’s nothing you can do about that. In my opinion, you are barely sane and definitely not credible. I find your entire premise AND your conclusions to be completely faulty and nonsense.

    Why should any of us care or listen to anything you have to say?

    I’ll stick with government officials and people who actually deal with these records for a living, thank you.

    Your biggest incompetence in your statements here is that you FAIL to grasp that lawsuits CANNOT be mere speculative FISHING EXPEDITIONS.

    You must have solid, credible evidence FIRST before you can pursue any legal challenge or obtain any credibility in casting doubt.

    So far, you birthers have ZERO in those regards….and after well more than 2 years obsessively looking….I think that speaks volumes.

    Face it, your paranoia and delusional scenarios about “what if” worries exist only in the fevered world of your own mind.

    Will you not admit, as an honest man (at least this I hope), that by saying “That is, if you don’t come clean. Last chance, Dr.” construes a veiled threat or at least postures a threatening stance?
    Why do you feel that if you don’t get your way, a threat is what an “honest man” would do?
    Regarding the Nordyke Twins, can you you not imagine that a file may have been handled in unusual ways because it was an unusual birth? Perhaps a file was started, misplaced, another was started for the 2nd birth by another staff member, discarded or any other number of possible permutations or explanations?
    Finally, can you even imagine any circumstances in which Obama is the actual, legal President of the United States?
    Can you go there?
    Can you entertain the notion and actually take the time to consider that you might be completely wrong with ALL of your suspicions regarding Obama’s presidential non-eligibility?

    I have clearly illustrated the problem with Abercrombie’s statement. You know that he can release the additional information and chooses not to.

    Yes he was indeed foolish – he trusted Obama’s word and went on a limb introducing and passing the resolution in Congress claiming Hawaii as his birthplace. Only recently has he discovered that his belief about official Kapiolani birth certificate was false. He is a big mouth – had he found this document on file, he would have bragged about it.

    Funny how they don’t in any way match what you claim.

    In fact, the final statement came back that his office has ended their pursuit on this and basically affirmed the same privacy act issues preventing release of info that prior HI officials have stated multiple times.

    Sorry, once again, I don’t buy into your nonsense interpretation of things.

    His foolishness was in making pronouncements before properly looking into the issue and realizing that he doesn’t have the authority to release anything more than what was already known.

    His foolishness was in thinking that any action he takes in any way will make a difference to the birthers or convince them of anything.

    I have one more question directed towards birthers or anyone with similar leanings.
    Can you please indulge me with an answer? 🙂

    If you could have any piece of evidence or testimony that would completely convince you beyond any doubt, who or what would it be?

    If it was some sort of evidence, what form would it take?

    Pretend you had a magic genie and this genie could provide you anything you desired.
    What piece of evidence is there…. that could be displayed upon the internet for others to witness….. that would put all of your questions to rest?

    Or if it was some sort of evidence that couldn’t be put on the internet, is there a person who you would trust to be truthful if they instead witnessed it firsthand and provided testimony?

    Who would you believe if they said Obama was legally president, an NBC, his father’s lineage truly doesn’t mean anything, etc?

    obsolete January 30, 2011 at 7:46 pm #

    Good question, US Citizen. The problem is that once anyone, for any reason, vouches for Obama, they become part of the conspiracy, whatever evidence is now suspect, and the goalposts get moved again.
    That is how Republicans like Governor Lingle, Glenn Beck, John McCain & his attorneys, suddenly become Obots and traitors.

    Every time birthers have asked for and gotten “one more thing”, it automatically wasn’t sufficient.

    nc1 didn’t acknowledge my my concerns about why he automatically thinks Obama must be guilty of lying if he wasn’t actually born at Kapiolani, instead of allowing the possibility that Obama was lied to as well. I can only assume that nc1 thinks:
    1. Obama should be able to remember his own birth.
    2. Obama is a very, very bad man and must be involved in wrongdoing every moment of every day.

    Doc C- Correct me if I am wrong- Does the currently known facts support the claim that Obama’s mom applied for a passport extension in 1965, when passports were valid for two years, and there is no evidence she had a passport before 1963?

    In the 60’s passports were issued for 3 years, and renewable for an additional 2 years. Stanley Ann Dunham’s extension is on file, expiring in 1970, so based on the FOIA information, the original passport was issued in July 19, 1965.

    There is no evidence that tells us whether she had a passport prior to 1965 or not. FOIA search results so far released tell us nothing on this point.

    Strunk asked for passport applications, and he got passport applications. The discussion about destroying old passport records is part of the historical record. One may reasonably conclude that the records Strunk asked for from 1965 do not exist.

    Perhaps it’s because they’re scared of the truth or looking ridiculous or maybe they themselves aren’t US citizens.
    That makes complete sense too in birther-ville: couldn’t most of these birthers be foreign agents sent here to upset our freedom and democracy?

    nc1: Are you saying that a birth registration document for a legitimate unattended home birth would not be considered the original vital record?

    My understanding of the phrase “original vital record” is that this is the first document issued regarding birth registration and it contains signatures of people who witnessed birth.

    Yes, a record of a home delivery is an “original vital record” and it is also a “long form” since the same form is used for all live births in Hawaii. The only difference between a hospital birth and a home birth is who fills out the form, and the details the place of birth and the witness…

    I should stress, however, that home births in Honolulu were very rare (only 14 in 1961).

    Wow, ODS (Obama Derangement Syndrome) at its finest! LOL!

    You folks are a pathetic joke, you know that? Back when GWB was POTUS, in those last few years a similar BDS (Bush Derangement Syndrome) metastasized. Certain folks who didn’t like him started raging nonsensically on blogs, blaming him for every incident in the world, no matter how unrelated to anything Bush actually did. Bad storm…suddenly Bush’s fault. Standard crime story in the local news blotter….somehow Bush was to blame. Cat stuck in a tree…well, you get the idea.

    The only difference is it took a good 3 years into his presidency – after the WND lies in Iraq started to unravel for the early signs of BDS to appear. Then it got much worse after Katrina and in his last few years in office – almost a reaction of incoherent and mindless rage, due to years and years of a string of failures, lies and disappointments.

    It doesn’t matter that there were those other reasons that folks were angry or disappointed in Bush. None of that was an excuse for the BDS moments of utter nonsense, blaming him for completely unrelated and unjustified things.

    Same is true with ODS. Only difference here is that ODS appeared pretty darn instantaneously in certain folks – like the PUMAs, the Birthers and the Tea Party folks. Didn’t even wait for Obama to take office. What does that tell you, honestly? That unlike GWB’s situation – ODS had nothing to do with any string of disappointments – no – it seems ODS is based in some sad, pathetic primal “rage” in certain folks that can’t accept or handle his election and therefore need to demonize him and make him into the bogeyman for all their own problems.

    So, in the deranged and deluded POV of folks like you, you blame Obama for all your own problems and for all the problems of the world. How sad & pathetic.

    Somehow you folks rant crazy and attack him and its suddenly all his fault? How does that work exactly? Oh yeah, that’s right. Its because you folks have no sense of self-responsibility and can only cowardly blame everyone else for your own problems, failures and wrongheaded ideas.

    And then you make the laughable rants about “transparency”. Sorry, that only applies to Govt and not his personal records.

    Is there a lot more his govt and admin could do to increase govt transparency further?

    Of course there is.

    Has his administration already taken steps to be MORE open than the one prior to it?

    Or course it has.

    So government transparency HAS increased. But you sad little angry folks don’t want to deal with reality and want to rant and wail and blame him for everything and turn a blind eye to anything he actually accomplishes. You have to live in denial just so you can deny giving him any credit even when he does make progress. So sad and small minded.

    Oh, and your silly “health care” cry about C-SPAN? Another RW lie and just shows you don’t actually watch C-SPAN and just mindlessly repeat the lies you are told.

    Hate to tell you, but most of the early days of the Health Care debate were all hadled under various congressional committees and many of THOSE health care meetings were broadcast on C-SPAN quite a bit.

    You just chose to turn a blind eye to all sorts of reality and live in a delusional world of denial.

    It is not a lie. Others had the chance and didn’t bother. Don’t you see that doubt is all the birther movement is about. It has nothing to do with getting the birth certificate otherwise the COLB would have been enough. They wouldn’t have had to alter images like Polarik did to try to claim the COLB was a fake. They make money by continuing the charade because they are enough gullible saps in the birther movement. NC1 has presented no evidence of coverups. She has presented paranoid rantings that aren’t based on reality and it shows how little she understands about how the world works. Obama has been more transparent than any other president when it came to their birth. He has released more documentation. There was plenty of debate on the health law for over a year and before that over the last 4 decades. You can’t just claim things are facts and make it so. This isn’t alice in wonderland

    Given FactCheck’s track record for integrity, I wouldn’t expect many (if any) other news organization to attempt to plow the same field. It is only the irrational distrust of anything that disagrees with them, that causes birthers to doubt the FactCheck report.

    Yes. There are some definite parallels to how they reacted to Clinton and how they are reacting to Obama…although it sure seems like their reaction to Obama is magnified to a significant degree.

If you could have any piece of evidence or testimony that would completely convince you beyond any doubt, who or what would it be?If it was some sort of evidence, what form would it take?Pretend you had a magic genie and this genie could provide you anything you desired.What piece of evidence is there…. that could be displayed upon the internet for others to witness….. that would put all of your questions to rest?Or if it was some sort of evidence that couldn’t be put on the internet, is there a person who you would trust to be truthful if they instead witnessed it firsthand and provided testimony?Who would you believe if they said Obama was legally president, an NBC, his father’s lineage truly doesn’t mean anything, etc?

    Copy of the original birth certificate and hand written birth registration index from 1961: If these records indicated unattended home birth, then passport records for Obama’s mother would have to be examined to answer the question whether she returned (in 1961) to USA with a newborn baby or not.

    A special prosecutor should be named to get to the bottom of the eligibility issue.

    Dr. Conspiracy: Strunk asked for passport applications, and he got passport applications. The discussion about destroying old passport records is part of the historical record. One may reasonably conclude that the records Strunk asked for from 1965 do not exist.

    Document released to Strunk indicate that there is at least one prior passport application. Even if they destroyed applications for it – the passport itself would have been available.

    You asked for passport records and did not get them – did you?

    Government destruction of passport records had to be documented – one could not just simply decide to get rid of it. Where is the order to destruct documents? It is highly unlikely that government would destroy documents used for passport applications – it is a rich source of data. Normally passport records are kept for 100 years. The whole “destruction of records for living people” story does not make much sense.

    They dragged their feet for more than two years and still could not produce the document ordering the alleged destruction. A far more believable scenario would be destruction of applications AFTER storing the data on microfiche.

    > his supporters first claimed one Hawaii hospital than another

    Actually, it does not matter what “his supporters” claimed or not. If his supporters actually claimed he was the Messiah (which they didn’t and don’t), it wouldn’t make him one.

    This is argument based on non-authoritative sources. We see the same thing in Germany with the Neonazi Holocaust deniers. They take one local newspaper from Switzerland that in 1946 (?) reported that 15 million jews were killed during the Holocaust, then compare that to the 6 million reported later and say “now how did the number shrink so much”, totally disregarding the fact that the 15 million number from that single local newspaper was totally off and not corroborated by any reliable source (the paper didn’t give a source either).

    As much as birthers love the term “intellectual dishonesty”, it applies exclusively to them.

    > Hawaii newspaper proclaimed him foreign born

    Is that a new invention or where does that come from?

    > at least two Kenyan officials said that he was born there

    The funny thing with conspiracy theories is that they are never consistent. Why would they proclaim such a thing publicly if allegedly the Kenyan government is “in on the conspiracy” and “keeps Obama’s Kenyan birth records sealed”?
    Why did no birther try to get these officials for an interview?
    Why are some Kenyan officials more credible to birthers than Republican Hawaiian officials? Especially since these officials would not have had access to the records the birthers claim the Kenyan government “keeps under seal”. Were they relying on hearsay or wishful thinking?
    Why are Kenyan officals relying on hearsay more credible than Republican Hawaiian officials who actually have access to the records in question?

    Notice the general vagueness of NC1s statement. She doesn’t name the officials or the Hawaii newspaper or which Obama supporters said the above. I know of the Minister of Lands but who was the other official and why haven’t birthers jumped on them traveled to Kenya and interviewed them? The MInister of Lands has no oversight over vital records so how exactly would he have come about this information? Which supporters claimed two different hospitals? All the ones I’ve spoken to have been consistent. Which Hawaii newspaper said he was foreign born? Post your source. There’s nothing to explain about the CT SSN Social Security has already stated that the numbers don’t always correspond to the states. It is a federal entity at the time they had different hubs that assigned numbers. You don’t have the right to access other people’s school documents just as I don’t have the right to see that you dropped out of the 8th grade. I’ve never seen Clinton’s records or Bush Sr’s. The only reason anyone saw Bush or Kerry’s is because someone leaked them to the press. It wasn’t the candidates choice to release them. There are no inconsistencies on the COLB.

    Remember in 1961commercial air travel was most certainly NOT what we have in place today. Far fewer carriers, no “internet”, fixed pricing set by government carriers at many levels etc.

    This also just into the era of the jet age so speed was slower and range was far more limited.

    A probable route would have been

    Honolulu – San Francisco
    San Francisco – New York
    New York – London (refueling in Ireland)
    London – Rome
    Rome-Cairo
    Cairo-Nairobi (refueling at least once)
    Nairobi – Mobassa

    Another route would be

    London – Cyprus
    Cyprus- Beirut
    Beirut – Bahrain
    Bahrain – Aden
    Aden – Mobassa

    Lots of stops, lots of time, lots of money

    That is why I wouild like to see several US documents, that are by law public yet the government has been hiding them:

    * Original handwritten birth registration index from 1961 should confirm that number 10641 belongs to Obama.

    Occasional errors do not create “reasonable doubt”. If Obama himself had proclaimed something false, that might carry a different weight.

    Besides, since Kapi’olani used to be (or was also known as) Queen Kapi’olani Medical, a mixup with “Queens” is not far-fetched.

    It’s like saying “one Obama supporter site gave his birthplace as ‘Holununu, Hawai’ which is definitely a different place from ‘Honolulu, Hawaii’, so why has he two birth places?”.

    That’s birther “logic” in a nutshell. It’s analogous to my five year old cousin mistakenly saying that two plus two equals five, then using that mistake to argue that addition is flawed and thus shouldn’t be taught in schools. It’s completely stupid but sadly that’s the best that birthers can do.

    —————————————————————————————————————-

    There was an article published in a Hawaii newspaper about an Illinois candidate for US Congress. It stated as a fact that both Obama and Duckworth were born abroad.

    “Duckworth is happy to point out that she and Hawai’i-raised Punahou graduate Obama have “a kama’aina connection.”

    Both were born outside the country – Obama in Indonesia, Duckworth in Thailand – and graduated from high school in Honolulu – Punahou and McKinley, respectively.

    It was of course modified after the fact and the offensive part taken out.

    There would be no need to guess and rely on hearsay evidence if our government released public documents.

    obsolete: Whatever the number, it is still higher than the amount of faith you put in the elected Republican officials of Hawaii.For whatever reason, there was some confusion two years ago on blogs and various web sites over the birth hospital. However, since Obama released his letter claiming birth at Kapiolani and their use of it in promotional materials, it is a settled issue. Claiming that doubt still exists is dishonest.

    I will believe it when the original long form certificate indicating Kapiolani as birthplace is released. The same type as issued to Nordyke twins.

    However, given the fact that big-mouth Abercrombie mentioned a written down evidence of Obama’s Hawaii birth – it is not going to happen, such document does not exist.

    Wow…Modified? So a newspaper cannot make a mistake? Stop being disingenous…So now you are going with the born in Indonesia story? In NC1’s world, even though there are hundreds of newspaper stories regarding the President being born in HI out there for all to see, she would rather believe in the less than 5 that somehow claim that he was born somewhere other than HI. In other words you have 100 that say born in HI and 3 or so saying born elsewhere, we should believe in the 3 because the other 100 are obviously wrong, on the take, or scared of Obama and are writing lies. And the birthers still wonder why no one takes them seriously….The only offensive thing here is how you attempt to use obvious false information and shoddy reporting as some sort of real evidence….Pathetic….

    No you wouldn’t. You would claim forgery because you have no proof that the Nordyke twins 1961 BC is even legitimate. Have the birthers requested that the Nordyke twins request their BC from the state of HI so that we could verify that their BC’s are correct and that the number they were issued was correct. That is how you try and verify evidence. Then one would look at the list of names on the 1961 Newspaper list of births, contact some of the others and see if they would be willing to release any info, or at least their registration numbers to get a larger sample size and verify what is the real order regarding the registration numbers. The Nordyke numbers could be the outlier in the sample set. We don’t know. But you take lack of evidence or proof of your wild claims as proof of some sort of wrongdoing on the part of the state of HI and the President, which is why you continue to look silly….

    You believe one newspaper stating an Indonesian birth (BTW that is something practically no birther claims) but disbelieve the 10,000 others which state Hawaiian birth?

He once tried to argue that the reason Stanley Ann Dunham went to Kenya in 1961 was to meet Barack Obama Senior’s family, completely ignoring the fact that Obama senior was already married to someone in Kenya at the time, and as such it would be very unlikely that the man would bring his second wife and child home to meet his first wife and child.

    That’s the best that you can do? A single erroneous posting on Snopes somehow becomes “his supporters?”

    Obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder characterized by intrusive thoughts that produce uneasiness, apprehension, fear, or worry, by repetitive behaviors aimed at reducing anxiety, or by a combination of such thoughts (obsessions) and behaviors (compulsions). Symptoms may include repetitive handwashing; extensive hoarding; preoccupation with sexual or aggressive impulses, or with particular religious beliefs; aversion to odd numbers; and nervous habits, such as opening a door and closing it a certain number of times before one enters or leaves a room or for example, a birther posting the exact same baseless speculations without a shred of credible evidence over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and . . . . . . .

    Comment:
    If Obama was born in a shack somewhere in Africa, no doctor attending, he hasn’t got a birth certificate, which, I believe, is the only plausible excuse for not producing one when it came into question. With states starting to make it a prerequisite for his name to appear on their ballots, he may have to declare himself dictator for life to avoid the whole messy issue. With trillions of dollars rolling past him these last two years, he’s certainly had opportunity to skim a couple of billion $$. Don’t forget his promise to establish a large army, wasn’t it 60,000, to police internal affairs. He may just need them!

    This is either an actual birther or someone sane doing an impression of a birther. It says a lot about birtherism that I really have no idea which category this falls into.

    Possibly related to birther and House shouter, Theresa Cao?

    Or a coincidence.

    Judge Mental: Yes…it says…….. “I is for to be hating scary muslim and are to am being greateful to Ms Taitz for be allowing me to am writing her court submissions for her”

    I couldn’t understand it myself but I figure it means something about Obama being a secret Muslim and all hail Orly and the other birther leaders….Seriously you have to question the educational level of some of these birthers when you read nonsense like this….

    Rarely is there a statement made by a birther that doesn’t make me question their education level….or at least their sanity.

    Dr Kenneth Noisewater (Bob Ross):
    If it exists as you say it shouldn’t be all that hard to find.Considering there are hundreds of articles that got Obama’s birthplace right compared to what a few that isn’t confusion among journalists that is an outlier.

    And remember that NC1’s original claim was that it was Obama supporters (plural) who said that Obama was born at Queen’s Hospital and then changed it. The only example which NC1 could cite is the posting on Snopes, which was changed when they realized that they had gotten it wrong. Snopes may have gotten it from Wikipedia, where one of the Wikipedia users had added it to Obama’s bio.

    Dr Kenneth Noisewater (Bob Ross): I’m sorry but I am not a board certified psychiatrist. You don’t pay me enough to support your delusions. If it exists as you say it shouldn’t be all that hard to find. Considering there are hundreds of articles that got Obama’s birthplace right compared to what a few that isn’t consusion among journalists that is an outlier. You have no right to look at any documents. Considering you’re foreign born we have more right than you do.

    Black Lion: Another e-mail from old friend Gary Kreep

    Speaking of Kreep, his petition for review in Keyes v. Bowen was denied by the California Supreme Court. Another birther fail.

    This illustrates one of the largest differences between Birfoon sites and debunker sites.

    Birfoon site

    LIE….get caught….LIE some more…Get shown it’s still a lie…LIE some more and accuse everyone of being a liar/commie/nazi/socialist

    Non Birfoon site

    Make a mistake…get pulled on it…correct and apologize

    And your point is? The revised version states right at the beginning that the original version contained an error:

    CORRECTION: A correction on this story was published on Sunday, Jan. 15, 2006: Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., was born in Honolulu on Aug. 4, 1961. A Page One story last Sunday contained incorrect information about his birthplace.

    So the correction was issued the Sunday after the original story ran. And the original story wasn’t even about Obama, it was about Tammy Duckworth.

    Keeping only the corrected version online is what every newspaper does, so as not to perpetuate the error. The paper is totally up front about the fact that what you see online is not as it originally appeared.

    So wait a second. The paper posted a correction on their article. They didn’t try to cover it up. The article clearly says: “CORRECTION: A correction on this story was published on Sunday, Jan. 15, 2006: Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., was born in Honolulu on Aug. 4, 1961. A Page One story last Sunday contained incorrect information about his birthplace.”

    They corrected their error, posted a correction and said what information was bad information. As opposed to what your rense article claimed “Honolulu Advertiser newspaper caught censoring and
    manipulating the news…the dirtiest kind of journalism” The advertiser did not censor or manipulate the news. They clearly posted a correction. That’s what real newspapers and journalists do when an error makes it to print. This is why the sites you frequent like WND are not real journalists.

    Well lets see for starters you can never run for President. I know this makes you jealous of Obama since he can.

    To further reiterate. Sites like WND don’t post retractions or corrections. Instead they change the article and don’t bother posting a correction telling they made a mistake in their article. They try to cover up their mistakes.

    What is the meaning of “one doghouse”?

    The “doghouse” is the (usually) enormous binder set that holds the submissions, pleadings etc

    And of course we see that the traitorous former LtC Lakin is still being pimped to get the birther donations rolling…It looks like he is the gift that keeps on giving for the birther movement….I wonder if “donations” are tax deductable…
