Today’s recycling comes from The Betrayal blog, with their headline: Two really important links – Breaking news Obama BC. The truth of this story is that it is neither “breaking” nor “news.”
The first link points to a topic on the Free Republic forum, rehashing the well-worn “date filed vs. date accepted” crock:
I have examined a significant number of Certifications of Live Births, issued by your Department. … On the lower left side of all COLBs, except for 1, the “form-words”: “DATE ACCEPTED BY STATE REGISTRAR” were printed. However, on 1 COLB the “form-words”: “DATE FILED BY REGISTRAR” were printed, instead.
This proves, beyond a doubt, that the writer just didn’t look at enough COLB’s! See my article Date Filed v. Date Accepted for another example. But what birthers universally seem unable to understand is that the COLB says that Barack Obama was born in Honolulu.
The second link in the Betrayal article is to that den of misinformation, the Post and Email blog and its’s article: HI Dept. of Health admits Obama’s COLB is faked.
Of course, the Hawaii Department of Health has done no such thing. In fact, they said essentially nothing (see below). Somehow, “nothing” got spun into the State having no records of issuing the COLB in 2007. Further Okubo, according to the Post and Email, refused to explain what “date filed” means leading to this statement:
Okubo’s response also now makes her liable for criminal charges of conspiracy to use her office under color of the law to defraud the general public.
However, the only thing the State of Hawaii is actually reported to have said in the email is:
“Aloha Mr. Roberson,
Under the UIPA, the state is not required to answer all questions posed to it. Unfortunately, we are unable to help you at this time.
Please see attached response to your UIPA request.”
The attachment is reported to be a standard form with two boxes checked saying:
[x] Cannot be granted because [x] Agency needs a further description or clarification of the records requested
