HI Department of Health Publicly rebuffs inquiries for Obama’s vital records

(Dec. 18, 2009) — The Hawaii Department of Health has just published a dossier of excuses to rebuff public inquiry into the vital records of Barack Hussein Obama, which the Office of Health Status Monitoring alleges to maintain.

The new web page appears at http://hawaii.gov/health/vital-records/obama.html

When did this dossier appear?

The dossier page is linked to, from the main page on Vital Records, which begins thus

About Vital Records

Vital records (birth, death, marriage, and divorce certificates) for events that occurred in Hawaii are received and preserved by the Office of Health Status Monitoring, a unit of the Department of Health. In Hawaii, access to vital records is restricted by statute (HRS §338-18).

Frequently Asked Questions About Vital Records of President Barack Hussein Obama II

The entry for the dossier as a FAQ, appears abruptly in a text which has no reference to it, thus indicating that the modification was done abruptly without much planning or forethought about layout considerations.  This argues that is was done recently and by direct intervention of Dr. Fukino, the director of the Department of Health.

When this last page was altered and this new page appeared is not certain.  Citizen-researchers did not notice them yesterday, and they were discovered only in the last 3 hours.  Google as of the writing of this article at 5:00 PM ET, did not contain any links to the dossier page, nor any text from it in their engine.  This seems to corroborate that the page appeared in the last 6 hours or so, since the obama.html page contains links to google analytics, Google’s search engine should be aware of its existence.

Reaction to the dossier’s appearance

What the dossier contains is evident enough to anyone, as it can be read on line.

The two significant documents, which are handy to have on file, are the links to the PDF files of the 2 statements made by Dr. Fukino about Obama’s alleged vital records.

What the dossier reveals is evident from an inspection of its contents.  But what is said and not said shows how the Department of Health is responding to the “crisis” of public inquiry regarding Obama’s alleged vital records.

I just interviewed by email, one citizen-investigator who has been watching the Department of Health for the last 2 months.  She had this to say about the dossier’s appearance:

My overall observation is it is an attempt by the DoH to deter citizens from making requests for Obama’s birth records and for government records the agency uses in its discharge of its functions.

The DoH Rules and Regulations: The DoH is denying access to anything other than the Public Health Regulations Chap 8, 8A and 8B.  I have made multiple UIPA requests for the government record that defines the application of ”Date Accepted By Registrar” and ”Date Filed By Registrar” on the COLB. Communications Director Okubo has responded by directing me to the PHR Chapter 8 which does not include how the aforementioned is defined and applied. In follow-up correspondence, Ms. Okubo stated that the DoH is not required to create or compile such information.

UIPA law HRS 92F-3 states: “Government record” means information maintained by an agency in written, auditory, visual, electronic, or other physical form.”  The definition and application of the “accepted” and  “filed” terminology exists somewhere; it is not applied to the COLB arbitrarily.

The DoH is continuing to refuse to disclose the definitive and legal basis of the Director Fukino’s July 27, 2009 statement.  After this statement was released, blogger Justin Riggs wrote the DoH to inquire about the information and records that were used to make the statement. Ms. Okubo responded: ”The statement was approved by Attorney General Mark Bennett.” All other attempts to obtain this information have been rebuffed citing “attorney-client privilege.”

According to the Office of Information Practices Opinion Letter 91-23, an agency must disclose the attorney-client communication in it is entirety if any portion of the communication is disclosed to the public. It cannot selectively choose what to disclose and what not to. The DoH revealed the AG had approved the statement which constitutes a partial disclosure.

The DoH appears to be charging $7.50 per record search for records it had until now provided free of charge.”

Ed:  The full article has more info of course.  Remember our very recent campaign for information?  Did this have any impact in that it brought the quest for information and true answers out into the light of day by virtue of being tangible?

Hawaii has peed all over itself by publicly posting that it will absolutely not abide by it’s own laws.  More later.
