He's Hiding Something
Smirking NBC "News" Anchor Brian Williams
It seems that Dr. Fukino has issued what on it's surface appears to be a stronger statement today than the original statement she made eight months ago concerning Obama's records. But again, if you parse her words closely she is still leaving wiggle room to not perjure herself while giving a misleading quote.
Her quote from today:
""I, Dr. Chiyome Fukino, director of the Hawai'i State Department of Health, have seen the original vital records maintained on file by the Hawai'i State Department of Health verifying Barrack Hussein Obama was born in Hawai'i and is a natural-born American citizen.
“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."
Why the change of wording? This allows Fukino to say that what she was claiming about each separate document was "true" according to that document. This would allow her to claim that the original birth certificate was on file "in accordance with law" even if it were simply the unverifiable testimony of the grandmother that Obama was born at her house. Quite embarrassing for a President who claimed that he was born in a hospital, actually he has claimed two different hospitals, in Hawaii. Then she could say that the "vital record" she was referring to was the COLB. The COLB does claim he was born in Hawaii, but bases that claim on what is on the real Birth Certificate. But a look at the real birth certificate might show that the claim of Hawaiian birth is based solely on the word of a deceased grandmother, and contradicts the story that Obama has been giving about being born in a hospital. Or it might show something worse- it might be amended to indicate that Obama was adopted in Hawaii by Lolo Soetoro which then made him a citizen of Indonesia under the laws of that country.
The resolution is simple and clear. Mr. President, if indeed you are the legal President, SHOW US YOUR BIRTH CERTIFICATE.
Presumed President Barack Obama is hiding something. It may not be something that renders him constitutionally ineligible for the office of President, or it might be. We don't have the information to say which. The reason that we don't have that information is that Obama himself is going to extraordinary lengths to keep this information hidden. He acts exactly like a person who is hiding something. He is hiding is birth certificate, and his college records, and his passport information from the early 80s. Why?
The corporate media, such as NBC's Brian Williams, don't want to know why. Their focus is on using their platform to shout down and personally attack people who are curious as to why the elected President of the United States is fighting so hard to conceal this routine information. Rather than demand answers from Obama, they demand that those who want the truth shut up. The "watch dogs" of the media have become the attack dogs of the administration.
Williams repeated the inaccurate claim that Obama has already released is birth certificate. That is incorrect. A copy of a "Certificate of Live Birth" was released, but not in court where releasing phony documents can be prosecuted. Even if it is genuine, a COLB is NOT a birth certificate. Rather, it is a document that indicates that one of five types of documents exists. One of those five types of documents was used under Hawaiian law to register children born elsewhere, and two other types claim Hawaiian birth but do not require a level of evidence normally considered proper to back up the claim of a birth. Only one of those five document types referred to by the COLB is what the typical person thinks of as a valid, documented "birth certificate".
That is why the carefully parsed words from the Hawaiian records official mean, on close examination, nothing. The official only claimed that a document similar to the one the COLB referred to and in compliance with Hawaiian law at the time, was on file. Though that statement may be true, its is meaningless. It is meaningless because the COLB could correctly and legally refer to a number of document types, not all of which would establish that Obama really is a Natural Born Citizen as the Constitution requires.
Another cover-up tactic, and at this point it is hard to call it anything else, is to bait and switch "citizen" and "natural born citizen". Obama can be a "naturalized" citizen of the United States without meeting the standard of "Natural Born Citizen". The latter term in the time of the Founders meant one who was born on native soil to two parents who where subjects of that country. Since Obama's father was a subject of the British Crown, it is doubtful that the Founders would consider him eligible for the office on that grounds that his loyalties could be divided. They wanted a President of the United States, not someone whose first loyalty was to another country, or even a "citizen of the world".
You mark my words. Obama is hiding something. And men like Brian Williams are helping him by using their platforms to personally attack and name-call people who are asking the question that, if they were worth squat as journalists, they should be asking themselves. They are helping in the cover-up by repeatedly spreading dis-information about what a COLB is and about the differences between a "naturalized" and a "natural born" citizen are.
