(08.08.09: I wish I had entitled this post, “HI OFFICIALS CONFIRM BO NOT A NBC BY CLAIMING, HE IS.” Because that is the premise of the piece. And these statements coming from Janice Okibo, Communications Director of HI Department of Health; and Dr. Fukino, Director, are important additions to the narrative that can support charges of election fraud against both NP and the DNC, filed with your state AG. That is, in order to get BO’s name printed on state general election ballots, they Certified he is a NBC without first determining whether he is. After reading the post, read the Comments below the post. I have written tomes in response to readers’ queries.)
Notwithstanding that several times I have outlined the case, when it comes to determining whether BO is a NBC, the burdens of proof and production are on him, I have nevertheless been struck at how easily people were duped into construing that recent pronouncements from the state of HI legitimized BO’s HI birth. On the contrary, they did no such thing.
I was reading td’s blog – she’s on my blogroll – when I came across this seemingly innocuous comment by a poster named Michelle in Texas:
Posted on BBC news. Most facts are correct. More telling are the omissions.
I read that article. Here was my reply.
Thank you Michelle, whoever you are. I read this link; the article mentioned that Janice Okubo, Dir. of Communications for HI DoH, said in the Washington Independent that, no one born outside HI can get a HI Certification of Live Birth saying he was born in HI. Here’s the money quote.
“If you were born in Bali, for example,” Ms Okubo told the Washington Independent, “you could get a certificate from the state of Hawaii saying you were born in Bali. You could not get a certificate saying you were born in Honolulu. The state has to verify a fact like that for it to appear on the certificate.”
(Recall I wrote in a comment on a previous post that Hi has now undertaken the wholesale substitution of the word “certificate” for the word “certification.”)
The Washington Independent printed Ms. Okubo’s statement on July 17. Here is that link. http://washingtonindependent.com/51489/birther-movement-picks-up-steam
IN OTHER WORDS, MS. OKUBO IS SAYING THAT ANY CHILD NOT BORN IN A HI HOSPITAL CAN STILL OBTAIN A HI CERTIFICATE OF LIVE BIRTH BY PRODUCING RECORDS VITAL TO IDENTIFYING WHERE THE CHILD WAS BORN. HOWEVER, SHE FAILED TO IDENTIFY WHAT WERE THOSE ‘VITAL RECORDS.’ AND, GIVEN THE CONTEXT OF THE QUESTION, HER ANSWER SHOULD HAVE INCLUDED THIS INFORMATION.
Then, 10 (ten) days later, on July 27, the Director of the Dept. of Health, Dr. Fukino said she had “seen the original vital records…” “verifying Barack Hussein Obama was born in Hawai’i and is a natural-born American citizen.” http://www.honoluluadvertiser.com/article/20090727/BREAKING01/90727082/Obama+Hawaii+born++insist+Isle+officials Know what I think she saw? The documentation BO’s mother was required to submit to the DoH verifying her newborn child was born alive in HI outside of the hospital, in order to obtain a HI Certification – oops, I’m not used to HI’s revisionist terminology – Certificate of Live Birth. These vital records could include a photocopy of a passport verifying his mother is an American citizen. And these original vital records submitted by his mother verifying BO was born in HI and she is an American citizen, are still in the file.
The original COLB is also in the file. This means that when Dr. Fukino said last October she saw BO’s original birth certificate – remember, HI officials now call the “Certification” a “Certificate” – she was telling the truth. (“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,” Fukino said. http://www.kitv.com/politics/17860890/detail.html Indeed, she was telling us the following. ‘According to state policies and procedures, BO’s mom provided information to us verifying her son was born in HI outside of a hospital. And we believed her and issued a COLB saying Hi is where he was born.’
Presumably, back in October, she also saw the evidence submitted by his mother verifying she was an American citizen. So, on July 27, up to here with 9 (nine) months of constant questions about details of his birth records in relation to his Constitutional eligibility to be POTUS, Dr. Fukino also announced in good faith, he was a NBC.
In other words, we still have absolutely no idea whether BO is a NBC.
