Did the state of Hawaii, factcheck and the Annenberg Foundation just have a big old luau, roast a pig on birth certificate records- including President Obama’s, for the entire state and the voter wasn’t invited?
Lou Dobbs of CNN did a story (6/23/09) on a topic that some of us by now have reasonably asked ourselves- where is Obama’s Birth Certificate to prove his validity as natural born citizen? In questioning the so-called birthers, the shit hit the fan as CNN’s president as Jon Klein President of CNN allegedly said in an email-
“It seems this story is dead- because anyone who still is not convinced doesn’t really have a legitimate beef.” Klein asked CNN researchers to dig into the question of why Obama couldn’t produce the original birth certificate. The researchers contacted the Hawaii Health Dept. and confirmed that paper documents were discarded in 2001 when the department went paperless. That reportedly includes Pres. Obama’s original birth certificate. http://www.mediabistro.com/tvnewser/cnn/jon_klein_on_birthers_it_seems_this_story_is_dead_122546.asp#more
If the story were dead, why did the President of a major media outlet request the research in the first place? Is Klein letting Dobbs be the fall guy? Dobbs has expressed his personal belief that Obama was born in Hawaii.
I disagree with Klein in that I as an American citizen do, and am quite entitled to have a legitimate beef with a man as a sitting president who will not, or can not, and definitely has not provided proof- beyond any reasonable doubt that he is Constitutionally qualified to hold the office.
The center of attention is of course President Obama’s birth certificate, but what about his other records that he has failed to release to the public? A full list of missing or now classified documents that he refuses to release are at http://rightsoup.com/list-of-records-obama-refuses-to-release/.
Last year Hawaii released an official statement from the director of health Dr. Chiyome Fukino that she has seen Obama’s birth certificate and it exsits- circumventing State law (Hawai‘i Revised Statutes §338-18) which prohibits the release of a certified birth certificate to persons who do not have a tangible interest in the vital record.
As the world turn, Dobbs said on his show July 23, 2009 that the state of Hawaii discarded Obama’s paper birth certificate eight years ago. So what the hell did the Hawaii Health Department officials see and what exactly did they mean to say in their news release of October 31, 2008? A copy of the release is athttp://citizenwells.wordpress.com/2009/07/24/hawaii-discarded-obama-birth-certificate-lou-dobbs-cnn-july-23-2009-dobbs-wants-obama-to-produce-birth-certificate/.
If all birth certificates were converted to electronic versions then what document is factcheck http://www.factcheck.org/elections-2008/born_in_the_usa.html showing us, claiming that it has seen Obama’s birth certificate- raised seal and all? Um, remember they are funded by the Annenberg Foundation I recall- http://www.cnn.com/2008/POLITICS/10/07/obama.ayers/–
The project’s organizing committee asked Obama to serve as the board chairman in 1995. Annenberg Project Executive Director Ken Rollings said Ayers was not a member of that ad hoc group when the decision was made. For seven years, Ayers and Obama — among many others — worked on funding for education projects, including some projects advocated by Ayers.
Why can you still request a printed copy of a birth certificate from Hawaii if all records are now electronic? http://hawaii.gov/health/vital-records/pdf/birth.pdf
This is nothing new to birthers, it just got the attention of a few more folks who just got cable TV due to the switch from analog to digital.
Score one for CNN.
