Cry Me A River

So, the Hawaii DOH spokesperson, Janice Okubo, is whining AGAIN, what is wrong with that woman?  I guess sneaking around corners, looking the other way, talking out of both sides of your mouth, creating new interpretations of the established laws, artfully dodging questions and vigorously kissing the ass of the usurper in the White House, is simply exhausting!

Today in the Honolulu Advertiser:


Hawaii gets persistent requests

for Obama birth certificate

State DOH still gets up to 50 requests a month for certificate

More than a year after his historic election, requests for President Obama’s birth certificate continue to pour into the state’s understaffed Health Department from people on the Mainland who refuse to believe he was born in Honolulu in 1961.

In an attempt to stem the flow of requests, the agency recently set up a special page on its Web site devoted to the issue of Obama’s birth certificate and who is eligible to get the records.

But the requests for the president’s birth certificate keeping coming at a rate of 40 to 50 a month, according to Health Department spokeswoman Janice Okubo, who has been handling the requests since Obama became a serious presidential candidate in 2008.

“They’re spurred on by these ‘birther’ blogs who direct them to bombard the Health Department even though they have no legitimate right to the information,” Okubo said.

“They’ve been misled to believe that the state of Hawai’i gives out birth information to anyone who requests it, but really our law protects birth information. We’re entrusted with protecting people’s vital records. To open them up would mean opening them up to identity theft and other types of concerns.”

HELLO HAWAII DOUCHEBAG, DAN NAKNSO, bloggers are NOT misleading people into thinking that Hawaii will “give out birth info to anyone who requests it”.   I have not seen that statement in a single place or on any blog anywhere.  YOU PRINT LIES!

State law allows birth certificates to be issued to family members, legal guard- ians, representatives of a person’s estate, or by court order or other legal purposes.

Okubo said those who have been requesting Obama’s birth certificate don’t meet the legal standards.

hypocrisy claims

Rick Newbold, a defense contractor from North Carolina now working in Iraq, asked the Health Department and the White House for Obama’s birth records, in part, because Newbold believes it’s “hypocritical of the president to proclaim that his administration is transparent when it obviously is not,” he wrote in an e-mail to The Advertiser.

“My interest in discovering and defending the truth about our chief executive is to maintain the integrity of the office of the president and to protect our republic from subversion, especially from foreign powers. America is in decline as a result of the globalist mindset and monied interests who seek to destroy America and integrate it into a global system of governance and taxation.”

The continuing issue over Obama’s birthplace — and, therefore, his eligibility to serve as president of the United States — has led state Sen. Will Espero, D-20th, (‘Ewa Beach, Waipahu) to introduce two bills this session on different sides of the issue.

Senate Bill 2056 would open up Hawai’i birth records under strict conditions to people who currently have no legitimate right to see them. Senate Bill 2937 would allow state agencies to label people who persistently “abuse” the public information process as “vexatious requestors,” which would allow state officials to deny their requests for documents.

GUESS WHICH ONE GETS PASSED?  That is clearly the intention here, “on different sides of the issue,”  MY ASS!

Espero does not necessarily believe that everyone should see birth certificates that are now restricted, but said he wrote the bills to trigger legislative hearings to discuss the issue.

“It’s all because of the noise about the president not being born here,” Espero said.

“I believe he’s born here. Most of Hawai’i believes he’s born here and it’s not an issue here as it is with these Mainland birthers. It probably would not end all of the controversy because I believe the people that are these birthers have some other motives. Whatever you say or provide to these people, they will not be happy with anything.”

State Health Director Dr. Chiyome Fukino — a Republican — tried to put the issue of Obama’s Honolulu birth to rest back in 2008 by declaring that she and Hawai’i’s registrar of vital statistics had personally seen Obama’s birth certificate.

“I’m getting 40 to 50 requests every month for President Obama’s birth certificate, all of them from the Mainland — Arizona, South Carolina, Florida,” Okubo said. “None are from Hawai’i.”Attorney Jeff Portnoy, who represents The Advertiser, has made a career out of fighting for public access to government records and believes that county and state officials need to be more open about what they do.

“On paper, the present state laws regarding access are very impressive, both philosophically and technically, in talking about that in a democracy, the public should have access to the workings of government,” Portnoy said. “Practically, the interpretation of those laws leaves a lot to be desired.”

The reality, Portnoy said, is that “Hawai’i has a significant reputation as being a hostile place to obtain records and access and, frankly, a history of executive and legislative leaders who have been fairly hostile, either through their attorney general or corporation counsels or the bureaucracy itself.”

Portnoy understands the desire among some people to see Obama’s birth records, but he does not put their requests in the same category as seeking openness to government dealings, such as details of public works projects or private meetings among officials to decide who will chair city councils, commissions and boards.

“That’s the people’s business,” Portnoy said. “We’ve never brought an action to get somebody’s Social Security number and there are legitimate reasons to keep birth records private. Identity theft is a legitimate, serious issue.”

follow-up requests

The majority of the people who e-mail or send letters to Okubo asking for Obama’s birth certificate do not challenge her response once she tells them they have no legal right to the information, she said.

But about a dozen people continue to hammer Okubo with follow-up requests.

“They want all of the organizational charts for our Office of Health Status Monitoring that handles vital records and for our health informations systems, our IT office,” Okubo said. “They request from me every single communication or every single document or request every record available related to President Obama’s vital records.”

It’s called doing your job, which you would have plenty of time to do if you weren’t engaged in Treason.

Okubo readily acknowledges that she hasn’t always been able to reply to a request within 10 working days as required under Hawai’i’s Uniform Information Practices Act, the state’s version of the federal Freedom of Information Act.

But she adamantly disagrees with the “birthers’ ” interpretation of Hawai’i law.

“They usually say that by not giving out his birth certificate we’re breaking the law,” Okubo said.

“But we would be breaking the law by giving out a birth certificate to someone who does not have a right to it.”



HI Dept. of Health refuses to corroborate

that Obama born in Hawaii


by John Charlton

Dr. Fukino’s claim that Obama was born in Hawaii and is a “natural-born American citizen” appears as shaky today as the infamous HI COLB appears authentic.

(Feb. 19, 2010) —  The Post & Email has received documentation establishing without a doubt that the Hawaii Department of Health categorically refuses to corroborate the July 28, 2009 statement of Dr. Chiyome L. Fukino that Barack Hussein Obama was born in Hawaii and is a “natural-born American citizen.”

Since Fukino’s statement has become the fundamental claim to eligibility of Barack Hussein Obama, the failure of her Department to corroborate it in any way establishes that claim as false, by common sense.  For honest folk, speaking sincerely, do not conceal corroborating evidence.  Nor is there a reason to hide Obama’s vital records unless they prove he is not eligible.

Since the public statement was made, numerous citizens have attempted to understand and verify the claim made by Dr. Fukino in her capacity as Director of the Department of Health for the state of Hawaii.  On each occasion the Department has officially refused to show any documentary evidence whatsoever to corroborate Fukino’s press release.
