( 1 ) Extra, Extra, Announcing obama’s Birth
UPDATES, IMAGES AND THE COMPLETE VERSION OF THIS “ARTICLE” ARE AT THE LINK BELOW:
I promise you that this piece has information not posted anywhere else before.
This research project focuses on recently discovered facts surrounding the Barack Obama newspaper birth announcements. I realized quite some time ago that no one out there had done a full-on comparison of copies covering a broad range of dates. Or, even more importantly to my mind, no one had done comparisons on copies from multiple libraries -personally collected– on a large scale. I set off to do so.
My main goal originally was to look for any obvious anomalies. Obviously.
Secondly, the frequency of the two papers posting the birth announcements in exact order within a day or two of publication.
Third, anything that jumped out as being out of place, or dissimilar between the copies from each location.
There is a surprisingly huge amount of information connected to these newspaper birth announcements, and I will do my best to put it in order. I will begin with a very abbreviated history on the discovery of the infamous obama newspaper birth announcements, followed by my own experiences and the materials that I’ve collected which are relevant to the research in this post. So, basically this is written somewhat like a a journal. There are a total of three different posts, and a “supporting” page of PDF’s (over in the right hand column). The links to the other two posts are below:
(7/27/10 update) New post on latest trip into Hawaii:
First, the back story.
Shortly after obama’s “COLB” appeared on his campaign website, many people claimed that it was fraudulent, and demanded that he produce his original long form BC. That never happened. Instead, an intrepid PUMA doing research made the discovery of the now famous obama birth announcement that apparently appeared in the Aug. 13,1961 Honolulu Advertiser. This was “discovered” by Lori Starfelt, who made the claim that she was sent the copy by the Hawaii State Library.
This is what I was able to find on our friend Starfelt, written by a columnist :
“This announcement was not found by, as might be expected, the usual suspects (the “Obamania media” as they’re known by some), but by one researcher trying to prove that Obama wasn’t born in the U.S: Lori Starfelt, who’s part of a team creating an anti-Obama documentary for the pro-Clinton PUMAs. It was posted by “TexasDarlin,” another person researching this issue.I’ve got to hand it to these people. Even if their effort is only to going to lead to the conclusion that he is a citizen (which, with this announcement, would seem to be closer and closer to the case), they’re pretty good researchers. I think rooting out possible corruption and deception is not a bad thing.So, the announcement was published. To those who will question its authenticity, Lori (Starfelt), the researcher, explains:“In 1961, the hospitals would take their new birth certificates to Vital Records. At the end of the week, Vital Records would post a sheet that for the news paper to pick up that contained births, deaths, marriages and divorces. The Advertiser routinely printed this information in their Sunday edition. This is not a paid announcement that his grandmother could arrange. This is information that comes from Vital Records – we know this because this particular section reflects those records. They didn’t have a provision for paid, one sentence announcement that would be included in the Vital Records. At the time, if a child was born outside a hospital, the family would have 30 days to apply for a birth certificate and Vital Records would expect to see prenatal care records, or pediatrician records of the first check up, etc. They’d also want the notarized statement from the mid-wife. Of course, they can apply later but that would noted as a different kind of birth certificate. I think TD has already addressed that. This information was received by Vital Records the first week of his birth = that suggests the hospital.”
Or does it? One very notable thing going on in her “statement” is that she seems to have been able to easily get lots of answers that no one has been afforded since. If you try to get this info from the newspapers or the hospitals or from the Department of Health in HI itself, you will not get a straight answer. But Lori got one. And, she actually got an absolutely PRISTINE copy of the announcement. Now, aside from the fact that we don’t REALLY know where she obtained it from, it was mentioned that it was given to her by the Librarian at the State Library in Honolulu.
