Hawaiian Officials have been duplicitous and need examination before a full accounting of “Operation Sideshow” is completely exposed
Hawaiian officials have never stated that the documents posted on the White House website are the true, genuine, and certified copies of what they have in their document vault. All they have stated is that they have seen or released to Obama what they have of record without saying what that record consists of.
Dr. Chiyome Fukino, the former director of Hawaii’s Department of Health made this statement to Michael Isikoff of NBC News on April 11, 2011 in a rare telephone interview.
Before she would do so, Fukino said, she wanted to inspect the files — and did so, taking with her the state official in charge of vital records. She found the original birth record, properly numbered, half typed and half handwritten, and signed by the doctor who delivered Obama, located in the files. She then put out a public statement asserting to the document’s validity. She later put out another public statement in July 2009 — after reviewing the original birth record a second time.
This is troubling because her most recent statement is embellished from what she stated on October 31st 2008.
There have been numerous requests for Sen. Barack Hussein Obama’s official birth certificate. State law (Hawai‘i Revised Statutes §338-18) prohibits the release of a certified birth certificate to persons who do not have a tangible interest in the vital record.
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.
Dr. Fukino makes another statement on July 27, 2009.
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 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.
In October of 2008 a week prior to the general election, she personally inspected Senator Obama’s records and made a statement regarding his his records that were on file with Hawaii’s vital statistics agency. Why she did this is not revealed since his “certification of live birth”, COLB had been released in June of 2008. She uses couched and non-committal phrasing on what is in the record since she only states that she has seen and verified a “record” in possession of the vital statistics archive leaving out the all important details about what is in the record. Then in July of 2009 she reiterates essentially the same statement she made in In October 2008. However, her declaration adds a new twist contradicting her statement that she did not have anything “new” to add to this issue when she states emphatically that Obama is a natural born citizen, her quote is shown below:
and is a natural-born American citizen
Her title is Director of Health for the State of Hawaii – how is it that she is now a constitutional lawyer, attorney general, or judge that is qualified to make such a distinction? The reason for this statement is also curious, why would she even make it since it is immaterial and incompetent and has no bearing on her current or previous statement(s)? Another question that needs to be examined was why was she making this statement at this time? And the addition of the “natural born citizen” status of her statement is curious, was she directed or coached to do this, if so by whom?
We are now faced with an intriguing problem in 2008 and 2009 she states essentially nothing, then 2 ½ year later when this issue is heating up with the focus Donald Trump brought to this tawdry affair she has a completely different story, which is it?
Dr. Fukino still has a duty of non-disclosure after leaving service as the Director of Health for the State of Hawaii, so her statement of Aril 11, 2011 is a violation of this duty. We also have the law itself, so she violated confidentially requirements under Hawaii Statute §338-18 as well and are clear on this matter.
There does not appear to be an exception in this statute for former Directors of the Department of Health for the State of Hawaii, this leaves her statements in serious doubt as to their veracity since her departure as director in December of 2010. The timing of her statement is suspicious, it appears timed to coincide with the planned execution of Operation Sideshow, which will launch in sixteen days, it is either fortuitous or complicit?
Obama is never going to press the issue on this breach of his vital records, as it is an implied declaration of corroboration on what will be posted on whitehouse.gov before the fact; we also have Neil Abercrombie as the current Governor of Hawaii a Democrat so I doubt he will prosecute her for any violation of Hawaiian law either.
Prior to Dr. Fukino making her statement of October 31, 2008 Governor Lingle seals Obama’s records on the 26th, five before days before her carefully crafted statement of the 31st. This was the response from the Governor on a request made by Dr. Jerome Corsi a correspondent on behalf of WND to receive a copy of Obama’s birth certificate:
It does not appear that Dr. Corsi is within any of these categories of persons with a direct and tangible interest in the birth certificate he seeks,
Her statement is a direct citing of Hawaii Statute §338-18 and appropriate, given current law, though seems misguided as Hawaiian law directs how vital statistics data is released not administrative or executive directives from the governor.
In this same WND article, an unnamed source makes the following statements:
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.
These statements on the handling of vital statistics data by Hawaii state employees and officials of the Department of Health is verbatim per Hawaii’s statutes for vital statistics data and is procedurally correct. However, it is clear that the only one stopping release of this information is Obama himself.
It is disturbing that references to withholding the information was “political” in nature and portends that this matter is far from being fully vetted and disclosed, by Obama. Now that Maricopa County Sheriff’s investigators have declared his long-form birth certificate, a forgery provides tacit foundation to these statements. Dr. Fukino now stands as a full participant in Operation Sideshow as an active member along with White House personnel to facilitate the acceptance of the forged document posted on the White House website. As stated previously it is either fortuitous or complicit.
Part Six looks at the Governor of Hawaii, Neil Abercrombie, and his conflicting statements about what Obama actually has in the vital statistics vault. Other officials of the State of Hawaii make misleading statements as well.
