The Obama File
Joe Kovacs says that more than a year and half after Barack Obama was elected, the governor of Hawaii is now publicly voicing the alleged exact location of Obama’s birth, saying “the president was, in fact, born at Kapi’olani Hospital in Honolulu, Hawaii.”
The disclosure is believed to be the first time a state government official has declared the precise place where Obama was born, despite numerous other published claims, including some for a different hospital in Honolulu.
The remark came Sunday night when Gov. Linda Lingle, a Republican, was interviewed on New York’s WABC Radio by host Rabbi Shmuley Boteach. (The subject was addressed at the 77-minute mark.)
“It’s been an odd situation,” Lingle said, referring to the continuing controversy over the disputed natural-born citizenship of Obama. “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.
“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 saying that the president was, in fact, born at Kapi’olani 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 think it’s again a horrible distraction for the country by those people who continue this.”
Lingle’s statement, above, is a lie. Fukino’s statement never identified Kapiolani as Obama’s birthplace — never, never, never!
Fukino said, “[I have]…personally seen and verified that the Hawai‘i State Department of Health has Sen. Obama’s original birth certificate on record…,” so there is a document. Hawaii released an Adobe document containing an alphabetical list of births, produced from the Hawaii Birth Index database, containing the names of those issued Certificates of Hawaiian Birth from 1911 to 1971, for those who did not get a standard Birth certificate, at birth.” The name Obama does not exist.
Beyond the lie, if Lingle disclosed Obama’s birth hospital without his permission, she has committed a misdemeanor. If Obama gave permission for this public disclosure, then Hawaii no longer has a basis for maintaining the privacy of Obama’s birth records.
§338-18 Disclosure of records. (a) To protect the integrity of vital statistics records, to ensure their proper use, and to ensure the efficient and proper administration of the vital statistics system, it shall be unlawful for any person to permit inspection of, or to disclose information contained in vital statistics records, or to copy or issue a copy of all or part of any such record, except as authorized by this part or by rules adopted by the department of health.
The Kapi’olani Medical Center for Woman and Children in Hawaii is one of two Honolulu hospitals at which Obama is alleged to have been born — Queens medical center being the other.
Although the governor now claims she issued a news release stating Kapi’olani is Obama’s birthplace, the actual release said no such thing, making no reference to Kapi’olani nor any other specific location of Obama’s birth.
Ironically, the governor’s pinpointing of the Kapi’olani Medical Center for Women and Children as well as her health director’s previous public statements on the matter statement are in apparent violation of Hawaii state law.
In two separate telephone interviews, Janice Okubo, the Health Department’s public information officer, said that Hawaii law prohibited her from commenting on the birth records of any specific person.
Politifact actually has Okubo on the record denying that the electronic COLB image provided by the Obama campaign can be authenticated by her or by anyone at DHOH!
Hawaii has previously released Obama’s birth date, and birth certificate number, which out of sequence with the Nordyke twins, born the day after Obama.
Remember, the COLB has only a “Filed” state and not an “Accepted” state. Until it’s accepted by the registrar it’s nothing.
Hawaii also confirmed Obama’s “vital records” have been amended.
So, little by little, Hawaii violates their own rules by releasing selected bits of information, while refusing to release the original, hospital-produced birth certificate.
Jill T. Nagamine, Deputy Attorney General for the State of Hawaii, has made it clear that her office will not corroborate or back in any way the July 27, 2009 Statement of Dr. Chiyome Fukino, Director of the Hawaii Department of Health, which declared Obama Hawaiian-born and a “natural-born American citizen.”
However, this changes nothing. As long as Barack Hussein Obama Sr. is the father of Barack Hussein Obama II, Obama remains ineligible to serve as POTUS and CiC, and sits in the Oval Office as an usurper.
But, in that audio recording, Lingle revealed her motivation. She was a McCain supporter and campaign worker. She has a vested interest in keeping the deal made between McCain and the Democrats quiet. That deal resulted in the Leahy resolution that said McCain, a naturalized citizen, was a “natural born” citizen. unbelievable corruption.
