Lingle Lies For Obama

Why would she do that?  As a senior McCain campaign staffer, maybe she was in on The Deal?

Now There's A Surpise -- A Politician Who Tells Lies

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.

And here's the video.
Why Would Lingle Lie?

More Birth-Certificate Mumbo Jumbo
Joseph Farrah asks, has any birth certificate in the history of the world been discussed and debated more than Barack Obama's?  He doesn't think so, yet, nearly every time it is discussed or debated, the public becomes more confused, mystified, curious and certain they are being deliberately deceived.

The latest entry into this circus is Hawaii Gov. Linda Lingle.  You would think the governor of Hawaii would be an expert on the subject of Barack Obama's birth certificate by now.  But her public comments suggest she is either abjectly ignorant or an active component of a disinformation campaign.

Lingle told a New York talk show Obama was born at Kapi'olani Hospital in Honolulu.  But she offered no evidence to back it up and has also claimed she has never seen the document.  She claims her office issued a press release stating the birth hospital during the 2008 campaign.  But no such release was ever published, and this is the first time any government official has claimed Kapi'olani as the birth hospital.

The birth certificate has been withheld from the public ostensibly by Hawaiian officials who claim releasing information about Obama's birth would be a violation of the state's laws.  Yet, Lingle herself just apparently violated that law by releasing information she claims is in that secret document.

But perhaps most remarkable about Lingle's cavalier, dismissive public statement is the fact that even Kapi'olani Hospital has been unwilling to make the unequivocal assertion it is the birthplace of Barack Obama.  WorldNetDaily has recounted in detail Kapi'olani's attempts to have its cake and it eat, too: Using Obama's name to raise funds for the facility, but refusing to confirm or deny that he was actually born there.

In other words, it's more mumbo jumbo from another Hawaii official.  The trouble with all this is that we live in a nation supposedly governed by the rule of law and the will of the people.

The law is very precise regarding the eligibility of the president of the United States.  It leaves little doubt that every American is entitled to know with 100 percent assurance whether the occupant of the White House is a natural born citizen.  It shouldn't be a matter of opinion.  It shouldn't be a matter of imprecise testimonial from a faceless bureaucrat in Hawaii.  It shouldn't be a matter of a questionable digital document posted on the Internet.  It should be a matter of established fact.

That's certainly not the case with Barack Obama's nativity story.  The story itself keeps changing.  The ground rules for keeping the birth certificate secret keep changing.

Now we're supposed to forget about this little constitutional requirement because the governor of Hawaii says there are so many more important issues to deal with.  May I remind everyone that Hawaii's history of negligence and malfeasance in keeping birth records is at the very root of the nation's suspicions?

Who is Gov. Lingle to lecture the rest of us about our priorities?  She is second only to Obama himself in raising alarm among half the nation's populace that something significant, something important, is being purposely concealed from them.

Enough with the double-talk -- enough with the imprecise statements -- enough with the secondhand testimony -- enough with the condescension about how trivial this matter is.

It's time to see some documents.  It's time to establish some facts.
The Place Of Obama’s Birth -- Not!

The Kapiolani Medical Center in Honolulu, Hawaii is the birthplace of Barack Hussein Obama II, according to Hawaii Governor Linda Lingle.  However, Sharon Rondeau reports that the hospital has never confirmed Obama's birth there, and the statement Lingle made on May 5 was inaccurate -- to be kind.  In speaking about Obama’s documentation, she said:


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."


However, the only statement issued by any Hawaii state official during the campaign is here, and it did not mention the hospital of Obama’s supposed birth.  According to the Health Department's own website, "State law prohibits the DOH from disclosing any vital statistics records or information contained in such records unless the requestor has a direct and tangible interest in the record, or as otherwise allowed by statute or administrative rule.  See HRS §338-18.  Direct and tangible interest is determined by HRS §338-18(b)."


Why has Lingle apparently violated her own state’s law to discuss Obama’s birth certificate?   How does she know that Obama was born at Kapiolani Medical Center?


According to a report just days before the election, Lingle’s office refused to release a copy of Obama’s original birth certificate on the grounds that the requester, who represented a news organization, did not possess "a tangible interest in the birth certificate he seeks."

WND was told 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, the source told WND 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 WND’s question whether 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.


If Obama had not requested the release of his original birth certificate, how and why was the Certification of Live Birth which Factcheck.org said it obtained from Obama campaign headquarters released and posted as part of an article on June 16, 2008?   In answer to a question as to whether or not Obama’s birth certificate had been released, Factcheck stated:

Yes.  His campaign made a copy public after speculation by conservative bloggers that he might not be a "natural-born citizen."

Factcheck.org has never verified that the image posted at their website was received from his campaign headquarters as claimed.  The image posted "just as we received it" can be found here.

An Israel Insider report dated November 1, 2008 stated that Hawaii officials would not confirm that the image posted on Obama’s campaign website was consistent with the birth records they supposedly have on file.

In January 2009, a letter purportedly signed by Obama was posted on the Kapiolani Medical Center’s website but electronically hid the image of the letter after WorldNetDaily questioned its origins.  The letter had been displayed by the hospital on the front of a fundraising publication, but the hospital’s spokesperson refused to confirm Obama’s birth there when asked.

Recently Parliament members in Kenya claimed on the record that Obama was born there.  They had also alluded to it numerous times previously.  It has also been reported that the Kenyan officials have documents on Obama but that they were sealed.

Attorney Andy Martin has filed a second lawsuit in the state of Hawaii, this time charging Governor Linda Lingle with "suborning election fraud in October, 2008."  While Martin believes that Obama was born in Hawaii, his first lawsuit was filed to force Hawaii officials to release the original birth certificate due to his contention that it should now be considered a  public document.

Hawaii Governor Accused Of Suborning Election Fraud
Sharon Rondeau says The Post & Email has completed a follow-up interview of Attorney Andy Martin upon his return from a trip to Hawaii during which he filed a lawsuit against Hawaii officials, charging them with concealing evidence under the guise of "executive privilege." 

MRS. RONDEAU: I read your news release of May 6 in which you said that you are charging Governor Linda Lingle with "suborning election fraud." Could you talk a little more about that?

MR. MARTIN: If you go back and you read the statement that Fukino issued on October 31, 2008, she goes out of her way to be emphatic that nobody told her to do anything.  She said that no one told her to treat Obama’s birth records any differently from anyone else’s.  But obviously, going into a vault and finding an ancient document and then issuing a statement is treating it out of the ordinary.  That action in itself was extraordinary, and it was intended to bolster Obama.  Because the work that I and others like me were doing that was undermining Obama’s credibility…they rushed in at the last minute saying they’d checked into it, saying he was OK.  Well, there was no need for that, because it’s not her job to do that, nor did anyone ask her to do it, we thought, because she claimed she did it on her own.

Now had it come out that Linda Lingle had issued that statement, it would have caused an uproar, because here’s the governor of Hawaii supposedly going into the archives and dusting off his old book of records and then bolstering Obama by saying he’s "legit," but that is in effect what she has now said she did.  If you listen to the Boteach interview, she takes the credit for it, if you can call it that.  She says, "Well, I told her (Fukino) to do it, and I wanted it to be cleared up."  In other words, it’s all her instigation.  Why was she instigating that when it wasn’t her job to do that and when she had Fukino lie and suggest that Fukino acted on her own?  An essential part of this cover-up or crime, if it is one, is to conceal the identity of the initiating party.

Birther Measure Signed Into Law
Curtis Lum, an Honolulu Advertiser staff writer, reported that Gov. Linda Lingle yesterday signed into law the so-called "birther" bill that is intended to limit the number of requests for Obama's Hawai'i birth certificate.

Hawai'i state officials receive dozens of requests for Obama's birth certificate each month from people who believe he is not a natural-born U.S. citizen and thus not eligible to be president.

False:  DOH receives dozens of requests for a broad-range of information relating to the circumstances of Obama's birth, and Hawaii's DOH has selectively released much of this information in violation of its own laws, policies and procedures.

The new law, Act 100, allows state agencies a limited exemption from Freedom of Information requirements when duplicative requests for information are made by the same person.  Although the law covers all agencies, the measure targets people who repeatedly request a copy of Obama's Hawai'i birth certificate.  The requests are being made to the state Department of Health, which keeps the birth certificates.

In testimony before the Legislature in February, DOH Director Dr. Chiyome Fukino said her department receives about 50 e-mail inquiries a month for Obama's birth certificate, primarily from the same four to six people.  "The time and state resources it takes to respond to these often convoluted inquiries are considerable," she testified.

Fukino has repeatedly vouched for the authenticity of Obama's birth certificate.

False:  Wayyyyyyyy beyond false.  Lum's statement is a bold-faced lie.  In her formal statement of October 31, 2008, Fukino only said that Obama's original birth certificate was "on record in accordance with policies and procedures."  She never, ever "vouched for the authenticity of Obama's birth certificate," as Lum claims.

July 27, 2009, Fukino issued another statement, "I, Dr. Chiyome Fukino, Director of the Hawaii State Department of Health, have seen the original vital records maintained on file by the Hawai‘i State Department of Health verifying Barack Hussein Obama was born in Hawai‘i and is a natural-born American citizen.  I have nothing further to add to this statement or my original statement issued in October 2008 over eight months ago."

She still hasn't vouched for the authenticity of anything, but that doesn't stop Lum from lying.  But, beyond that, in
correspondence with The Post & Email, 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."

So you see how the Gullibles do it. They simply lie.  They spin.  They dissemble.  That's their job.
Lotta Lies
Lingle's director of health illegally hid until November of 2009 the administrative rules which reveal that any person is authorized to receive a non-certified copy of Obama’s abbreviated Certification of Live Birth (COLB).

Lingle's director of health made a public announcement of what is contained on the (multiple) birth records for Obama, which is forbidden in HRS 338-18a.

Lingle's director of health then refused to release the documents she used in order to make Lingle's illegal statement, as required by Hawaii’s UIPA (FOI law).

Lingle's director of health has overseen a department which is currently being investigated because it has apparently illegally destroyed permanent records, including the original birth index, index to foreign births, and the birth record for at least one individual.

Lingle's director of health has perjured herself by giving testimony before a legislative hearing which exaggerates the actual requests they receive regarding Obama’s birth certificate by (IIRC) about 800%.  She gave that testimony urging Hawaii to basically do away with their FOI law (UIPA) by allowing an agency to rule a person as a "vexatious requestor" who didn’t have to be answered.

There’s more, but I’ll wait on that for right now.

Butterdezillion forgot to say that Fukino only said what the birth records(plural) for Obama claim. The very fact that there are multiple records when the only index data they have for him is for a birth record shows that the document they have has been amended, which means that according to statute the State of Hawaii CANNOT vouch for the accuracy of the claims made on it.

IOW, the Hawaii DOH has revealed through multiple communications that what they have for Obama does not rise to the standard of prima facie evidence.  If any judge ever allows a case to be heard on its merits, everything Hawaii has for Obama is not enough to automatically trump any other birth claim.

That could be why Obama’s lawyers have only offered 2 things as evidence, for Judge Robertson to "note": the online image of a COLB (which the HDOH has now indirectly confirmed as a forgery) and the online images of the birth announcements (which will very soon also be proven as forgeries as well).

Officials, in Hawaii, were at the time illegally hiding the administrative rules which show what the records were in compliance with.

They weren’t forced to post the administrative rules as required by state law until early November, 2009.  A year after the election was over.

Fukino had Alvin Onaka take those rules off the lieutenant governor’s website, saying they were supposedly being "converted" -- even though no new rules have even been proposed, much less are being transitioned in.  And the HDOH itself took down their Administrative Rules from their website, where they were required by statute to be posted for the public to access.
