Everything Hawaii bureaucrats did, or didn't do, to cover up Obama's lack of a long-form birth certificate, was done before Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie's search-warrant supported investigation revealed that Hawaii's Department of Health did not have Obama's long-form birth certificate.
Okubo Refuses To Authenticate COLB

On June 27th, 2008, PolitiFact.com has Janice Okubo, Communications Officer for the Hawaii Department of Health (HDoH) on the record denying that the electronic COLB image provided by the Obama campaign, and posted on the Internet, can be authenticated by her or by anyone at DHoH.  But that was only in a follow-up to their initial story where Okubo said the COLB was a valid Hawaiian birth certificate.


PolitiFact.com describes the controversy that erupted from their initial story:


"When the birth certificate arrived from the Obama campaign it confirmed his name as the other documents already showed it.  Still, we took an extra step: We e-mailed it to the Hawaii Department of Health, which maintains such records, to ask if it was real."


"It's a valid Hawaii state birth certificate," spokesman Janice Okubo told us.


"Then the firestorm started."


After the "firestorm," Politifact apparently conducted a follow-up interview with Okubo which shows that what Okubo meant was that the Obama COLB only appeared to be be a valid Hawaiian BC, but she could not and did not "verify" that it was a valid Hawaiian COLB BC.


Politifact: "Okubo says she got a copy of her own birth certificate last year and it is identical to the Obama one we received.

"And about the copy we e-mailed her for verification?  'When we looked at that image you guys sent us, our registrar, he thought he could see pieces of the embossed image through it.'"

"Still, she acknowledges: 'I don't know that it's possible for us to even say beyond a doubt what the image on the site represents.'"


Okubo had to back off her original claim.  And a good thing ... she originally said Obama’s alleged COLB was real because it looked like her own.  In other words, she used no formal technique to verify its accuracy.  She relied on no official record to verify its accuracy.  She just thought it looked like hers.  At best, she follows up with a second-hand anecdote, "... our registrar ... thought he could see pieces of the embossed image ..."


Really?  Nobody else could.

Hawaii Hides Obama's "Birth Records"

During the summer of 2008, the legitimacy of Sen. Barack Obama's "birth certificate" had become the focus of intense speculation -- and even several lawsuits.  Hawaii's Gov. Linda Lingle placed Obama's birth certificate under seal on October 2008, and instructed the state's Department of Health to make sure no one in the press obtains access to the original document under any circumstances.

The governor's office officially declined a request, made in writing, by Jerome Corsi, in Hawaii, to obtain a copy of the hospital-generated original birth certificate of Barack Obama.

"It does not appear that Dr. Corsi is within any of these categories of persons with a direct and tangible interest in the birth certificate he seeks," wrote Roz Makuala, manager of constituent services in the governor's office, in an e-mailed response to a request seeking the information.

Those listed as entitled to obtain a copy of an original birth certificate include the person born, or "registrant" according to the legal description from the governor's office, the spouse or parent of the registrant, a descendant of the registrant, a person having a common ancestor with the registrant, a legal guardian of the registrant, or a person or agency acting on behalf of the registrant.

The official reason for denial of access to Obama's birth certificate would be authority granted pursuant to Section 338-18 of the Hawaii Revised Statutes, a provision the anonymous source claimed was designed to prevent identity theft.

Still, a source said, confidentially, the motivation for withholding the original birth certificate was political, although the source refused to disclose whether there was any information on the original birth certificate that would prove politically embarrassing to Obama.

The source also refused to answer questions about the original document on file with the Department of Health was a hospital-generated birth certificate or a registration of birth that may have been filed subsequent to the birth.

The anonymous source made clear the Hawaii Department of Health would immediately release Obama's original birth certificate, provided Obama requested the document be released, but the Department of Heath has received no such request from the senator or from anyone acting officially on his behalf.

Hawaii Issues Statement
Countless politicians, reporters, bloggers and even a few judges have claimed that the State of Hawaii have ascertained that Obama's birth certificate is on file and it proves he was born in Hawaii.

"Therefore, I as Director of Health for the State of Hawai‘i, along with the Registrar of Vital Statistics who has statutory authority to oversee and maintain these type of vital records, have personally seen and verified that the Hawai‘i State Department of Health has Sen. Obama’s original birth certificate on record in accordance with state policies and procedures."

There is nothing in that statement that states the birth certificate Hawaii holds was issued by Hawaii.  There is nothing that states Obama was born in the State of Hawaii.  That statement simply says that Hawaii has the original birth certificate "on record in accordance with state policies and procedures."

And, we now know that that statement is not true.  The Hawaii Department of Health (HDoH) never had Barack Obama's original birth certificate.

It is very obvious, in reading the statement of the Director of Health, that this statement was very carefully worded.

When HDoH Director Chiyome Fukino announced to the press, on October 31, 2008, that "Hawaii has Obama’s original birth certificate on record," this should have been the time for Hawaii to also confirm the existence of the COLB posted on the Internet, since that is what prompted hundreds of phone calls to Ukubo and company in the first place.  The fact that she didn't only reinforced the fact that Obama's original birth certificate did not exist.

If the birth information on that COLB matched the birth information in his birth record, then why not say so?  It would have stopped them from being bombarded with phone calls, and may have ended the quest for his long-form birth certificate.

Conversely, if the birth information on that COLB did not match the info on his birth record, then they would be dancing around the issue and dodging all questions about it -- which is exactly what they did -- and what they did up to Abercrombie's discovery.
Hawaii Changes The Rules
According to the Hawaii Star-Bulletin, the State of Hawaii, Department of Health no longer issues copies of paper birth certificates as was done in the past, said spokeswoman Janice Okubo.

The department only issues "certifications" of live births, and that is the "official birth certificate" issued by the state of Hawaii, she said.

And, it's only available in electronic form.

Okubo explained that the Health Department went paperless in 2001.

"At that time, all information for births from 1908 (on) was put into electronic files for consistent reporting," she said.

Information about births is transferred electronically from hospitals to the department.

"The electronic record of the birth is what (the Health Department) now keeps on file in order to provide same-day certified copies at our help window for most requests," Okubo said.

Asked for more information about the short-form versus long-form birth documents, Okubo said the Health Department "does not have a short-form or long-form certificate."

"The birth certificate form has been modified over the years and decades to conform to national standards and models," she said.

Okubo also emphasized the certification form "contains all the information needed by all federal government agencies for transactions requiring a birth certificate."

She added that the U.S. Supreme Court has recognized the state's current certification of live birth "as an official birth certificate meeting all federal and other requirements."

The issue of what constitutes an official Hawaii birth certificate received national attention during last year's presidential campaign.  Those who doubted Barack Obama's American citizenship called the copy of the Hawaii birth document posted on his campaign web site a fake.

Asked about that document, Okubo said, "This is the same certified copy everyone receives when they request a birth certificate."

Everything above is a lie.  It clearly demonstrates that officials in Hawaii's Department of Health are engaged in a cover up and fraud.

Here is a long-form Hawaiian "Certificate Of Live Birth" that was issued on September 28, 2010.
First They Will -- Then They Won't
The Hawaiian certification of live birth (COLB) the Obama Campaign posted on the Internet as proof of his eligibility would not be accepted for eligibility for some Hawaiian state government programs.

The website of the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands, states clearly the COLB touted by the Obama campaign, White House press secretary Robert Gibbels and a host of other Obama defenders is not acceptable as a form of identification to qualify under this program.

From the DHHL website:

There are two categories of documents used in determining eligibility: primary and secondary.

Primary Documents

The primary documents used to show you are of age and a qualified native Hawaiian are:

A certified copy of Certificate of Birth;
A certified copy of Certificate of Hawaiian Birth, including testimonies; or
A certified copy of Certificate of Delayed Birth.
You will need the certified birth certificates for:

Your biological father; and
Your biological mother
The state Department of Health, (DOH), Vital Records Section, records documents by island and district (geographically) and by the date of the event (chronologically).

If your biological parents' documents don't clearly prove that you have at least 50 percent Hawaiian ancestry, you will also need certified birth certificates for:

Your biological father's parents; and
Your biological mother's parents.

In order to process your application, DHHL utilizes information that is found only on the original Certificate of Live Birth, which is either black or green.  This is a more complete record of your birth than the Certification of Live Birth (a computer-generated printout).   Submitting the original Certificate of Live Birth will save you time and money since the computer-generated Certification requires additional verification by DHHL.

Hawaii Home Lands won't take it, but Obama insists it certifies him to be Commander-in-Chief.

Update:  This item was cut 'n' paste from the DHHL website.  Between 6/8/09 and 6/18/09 DHHL has scrubbed this site.  In the past 10 days they have changed the policy above.  They will now accept Certifications of Live Birth.  Click the link now.  Check it out.

A coincidence?  Suuuuuuuuure!  The Obots continue to scrub the Internet for the Obamamessiah.

I'm going to have to start caching everything.


Here are three cached pages from the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands document, "Applying for Hawaiian Home Lands," that proves that Hawaii is actively supporting Obama's usurpation of the Office of the Presidency.

Hawaii Does Have Obama's Original Birth Certificate

In July 2009, CNN's Lou Dobbs demanded Obama's original birth certificate.  That was followed by CNN/U.S. President Jon Klein telling staffers of "Lou Dobbs Tonight" that the issue is a "dead" story, according to a Los Angeles Times report.


In an e-mail, according to the Times, Klein wrote that CNN researchers had determined that Obama's 1961 birth certificate no longer exists because Hawai'i officials had discarded paper documents in 2001 -- a claim denied yesterday by Isle health officials.


In 2001, Hawai'i's paper documents were reproduced in electronic format but "any paper data prior to that still exists," Health Department spokeswoman Okubo said.


Okubo would not say where Obama's original birth certificate is, but said "we have backups for all of our backups."

Criminal Document Fraud
The only thing I'll sign is a petition for Obama, Obama for America, and Factcheck to be charged with criminal document fraud and Internet fraud for creating and proffering a false identification document, aka the fabricated COLB image posted on Obama's website, among others, that Press Secretary Gibbs publicly admitted was put there by the aforementioned President of the United States and his Presidential Administration.

These said individuals and parties did willingly, and with malice aforethought, violate Chapter 18 of the United States Code, Section 1028, Fraud and related activity in connection with identification documents, authentication features, and information, by creating and preferring what they allege was Obama's actual, original birth certificate, but was, in fact, a false identification document as defined by statute below:

A "false identification document" is any document *or facsimile of a document) of a type intended or commonly accepted for the purposes of identification of individuals that -- (A) is not issued by or under the authority of a governmental entity or was issued under the authority of a governmental entity but was subsequently altered for purposes of deceit; and (B) appears to be issued by or under the authority of the United States Government, a State, a political subdivision of a State, a foreign government, a political subdivision of a foreign government, or an international governmental or quasi-governmental organization.

The Obama Administration, the Obama Campaign, aka Obama for America, Factcheck.org, and Barack Hussein Obama as the principle mastermind of this document fraud who directed the creation and distribution of a false identification document for himself, are hereby charged with the commission of felony document fraud, punishable by up to five (5) years in prison, and a maximum fine of $250,000 for each offense.

It is a statement of fact, and admission therewith, that the Obama Campaign, aka Obama for America, did create a minimum of three (3) false identification document copies and distributed said copies to the Daily Kos, Factcheck, and Politifact; and, additionally, posted the original false identification document on Obama's own website, "My.BarackObama.com" and also on a separate website known as, "Fight The Smears."

Furthermore, two months after the creation and distribution of these false identification documents, Obama for America, in collusion with Factcheck.org, a subsidiary of the Annenberg Public Policy Center, owned by the Annenberg Foundation and funded by billionaire George Soros, created and posted nine (9) photographs of what they further alleged was the same, false identification document that they had earlier alleged was a scanned facsimile of Obama's original birth certificate -- thus compounding their earlier offenses with further violations of the same statutes.

In all, then presidential candidate, Barack Hussein Obama, his campaign organization, d/b/a Obama for America, and Annenberg's Factcheck.org organization are hereby charged with thirteen (13) separate violations of Chapter 18 of the United States Code, Section 1028.

It is further alleged that these individuals and organizations, by virtue of displaying and promoting these fraudulent images as genuine government-issued documents, to the voting populaces of all 50 states in the Union, are hereby, also guilty of committing Internet fraud, in violation of individual state laws and Federal laws.

Lastly, these false documents are also in violation of Hawaiian state forgery statues as the State Government of Hawaii was directly deceived and harmed irrespective of the other charges.

I call upon the Attorney General of the State of Hawaii, Attorneys General of the other 49 states, the DC District Attorney, the Attorney General of the United States, and the Congress of the United States to launch their own investigations of the crimes committed against the respective state and national governments, and the citizens under these jurisdictions.

Or...something like that.

Who Is Behind Quashing The Birth Certificate Issue?
Back in October of 2008, when the subject of Obama’s Constitutional eligibility to be president of the United States was just a blip on the radar screen of public awareness, I wrote an article about how easy it was to find my then-92-year-old mother’s birth certificate.

Frankly, I didn’t think finding my mother’s birth certificate was possible, given the fact that she had been born in a farmhouse in Storrs, CT, along with nine of her 10 siblings, to parents who didn’t speak English.  Despairing that she would never be "qualified" to receive the care [in a nursing home} that she desperately needed, I set about to find the document, which I was sure had vanished in the unreliable record-keeping of 1913.  When I called the third number, I explained to the woman who answered the phone that I was "asking something impossible."  I gave her my mother’s first name and her father’s last name.  Within four minutes, she said, "Here it is!"  When I expressed my amazement, the woman said:  "That’s nothing…we’re routinely asked to find birth certificates from the 1800s, and we do that all the time!"  Total time it took me to find my mother’s 1913, born-in-a-farmhouse birth certificate: 10 minutes!

Obama was born not in 1913, like my mother, but in 1961.  So it was quite curious that not one cyber-sleuth could find an authentic, verifiable copy of his original vault copy birth certificate.  I’m not talking about the faux version Obama posted on his website, which was deemed the real thing by FactCheck.org, a "truth"-detecting site that is sponsored by the Annenberg Foundation, the same foundation that hired Obama and his terrorist pal William Ayers and gave them millions of dollars for a research project in Chicago.  In other words, the least credible source!

Even more significant is that no one in the media thought Obama’s missing birth certificate worth even casual mention.  Their thinking seemed to be: If we’re not going to check on his eligibility to be president, then why question why the other crucial documents were -- and continue to be -- sealed?  For instance: his baptism certificate; elementary, high school, college and graduate school transcripts; visa(s); selective service record; alleged multiple Social Security numbers; Illinois attorney’s license; Illinois State Senate records; law practice client list; Univ. of Chicago scholarly articles; financial records while a community organizer in Chicago; and medical records.  I’m also curious about why Michelle Obama’s law license was suspended in 1993 by the Illinois Supreme Court, but then again she wasn’t running for president.

Instead, the media were frantically busy trying to divert public attention away from those pesky things known as credentials with gossip-driven tabloid reportage of Sarah Palin and Joe the Plumber in order to avoid the bigger-than-Watergate potential scandal of whether or not Obama was eligible -- according to the U.S. Constitution -- to become President of the United States!


In an explosive interview by Dr. Laurie Roth on her syndicated West Coast radio show on August 7th, Douglas Hagmann -- a respected journalist, director of the Northeast Intelligence Network and longtime private investigator, and Judi McLeod, a prolific journalist and the managing editor of Canada Free Press -- the reason for the media blackout about the birth-certificate issue was nothing less than organized Mafia-like dire threats to members of the media issued not only from the heads of major TV and radio stations but also from Federal Communication Commission officials!

According to Hagmann and McLeod, who conducted a nine-month investigation and documented their findings scrupulously, after Obama was elected but before he was inaugurated:

•  A major TV talk-show host reported that he was ordered not to raise the birth certificate issue or risk losing his job.

•  FCC officials threatened to yank broadcasting licenses, break up conglomerates, and make the enactment of the Fairness Doctrine "look mild" in comparison to other consequences.

•  In at least one corporate TV headquarters, memos were circulated to all on-air employees not to mention the birth certificate issue, as well as other specific subjects like Obama’s Illinois lawyer’s license, his college records, etc., under both implied and explicit threats.

Hawaii Confirms Obama’s Vital Records Have Been Amended
Leo D'Onofrio says he will be assisting one of his readers in filing litigation in Hawaii state circuit court pursuant to her ongoing request for public information denied by Hawaii officials.  (Readers of his blog will recognize her as MissTickly, aka TerriK.)

Correspondence sent to TerriK by Hawaii officials indicates that Obama’s vital records have been amended and official records pertaining thereto are maintained by the state of Hawaii.

TerriK was originally interested in whether or not Obama made a request to amend his records and to inspect them for the purpose of amending.  Those requests (not the actual amendments) do not appear to be protected according to the statute and various opinions issued by the state... regardless... TerriK's requests to see the amendments had to be answered in one of three ways according to the statute and the manual:

1.  We have the record you requested and will provide them.

2.  We don't maintain the records you requested (aka we don't have any such records in file).

3.  We have the records, but you are not entitled to see them.

She was told on two occasions by an Office of Information Practices (OIP) staff attorney that if no such records exist, they must notify her of that fact.

Eventually that same staff attorney, acting on advice of the Department of Health (DoH) told TerriK that the records were not available as they were protected.  Their official response was that she wasn't allowed access to those records...  They never told her that they didn't maintain these records she requested.  If they didn't have such records, then they would have been required to tell her the records don't exist.

D'Onofrio will issue a full statement and press release on behalf of TerriK via his blog in the days ahead.  This statement will include a complete history of correspondence between TerriK and Hawaii state officials in the OIP and the DoH.

Hawaii Launches Obama Birth Queries Firewall
Bob Unruh reports that Hawaii has launched a defense against Obama birth queries.  The Department of Health has posted a "vital records" Web page -- "obama.html" -- that says they aren't answering any more questions about Barack Obama, the mysterious circumstances surrounding his birth, and/or what documentation is in their possession.

click image for large copy
It could be that the state of Hawaii is overwhelmed by -- or is just annoyed at -- the number of inquiries about the birth records of Barack Obama.

The state has launched a new Web page with the information it wants the public to know about its Obama records, including the fact that state law does not "require agencies to respond to all questions asked of the agency."

After all, a new poll confirms just 51 percent of Americans believe Obama eligible for the office he now holds.

The recent WND/Wenzel Poll indicated 32.6 percent of Americans said they do not consider Obama a "legitimate" president and another 15.8 percent said they were unsure.  The poll updated a survey six months ago in which most Americans said they were aware of the dispute.

Kinda makes you curious to know what's in that documentation.  It's as guarded as the "Go Codes."  The greatest secret in the Age of Obama is Obama's bona fides -- the stuff that the rest of us have to present with regularity. 
New Hawaii Law Shuns Obama Birth Document Requests
The AP is reporting that it's now law in Hawaii that the state government can ignore repetitive requests for Barack Obama's birth certificate.

Republican Gov. Linda Lingle signed into law Wednesday a bill allowing state government agencies not to respond to follow-up requests for information if they determine that the subsequent request is duplicative or substantially similar to a previous request.

The law is aimed at so-called "Birthers," who claim Obama is ineligible to be president.  They contend the Democratic president was born outside the United States [among other things], and therefore doesn't meet the constitutional requirement for being president.

Both Fukino and the state registrar of vital statistics have verified that the Health Department holds Obama's original birth certificate.

Health Department officials supported the law because the state still gets between 10 and 20 e-mails seeking verification of Obama's birth each week, most of them from outside Hawaii.

A few of those requesters file repeated inquiries seeking the same information, even after they're told state law bars release of a certified birth certificate to anyone who does not have a tangible interest.

Advocates for openness in government oppose the law because they fear it could be used to ignore legitimate requests for information.
