Hawaii Health director now says Obama was born in Hawaii; she did *not* say that before

Dr. Chiyome Fukino of the Hawaii Department of Health has issued a press release that supposedly says (link from Dan Nakaso of the Honolulu Advertiser):

"I, Dr. Chiyome Fukino, director of the Hawaii State Department of Health, have seen the original vital records maintained on file by the Hawai'i State Department of Health verifying Barrack Hussein Obama was born in Hawaii 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."

Confirming that he was born there is more than she said in her 10/31/08 statement which did not say he was born there. The new release adds information and doesn't simply reiterate what she said before, helping to show that all those who claimed that her earlier release proved he was born there were being misleading. For instance, Howard Kurtz said officials confirmed he was born there before that had happened. The fact that it's now happened doesn't mean that he wasn't being misleading before.

And, it's unfortunate that I didn't get any help in my attempts to use this issue to discredit the MSM; now that previously golden opportunity has largely been lost. Expect the same MSM sources that were misleading about this issue before to now use this new statement to try to show that they were telling the truth all along, when that's false: the new statement provides additional information and those who said Fukino's 10/31 statement showed he was born there were lying.

In December 2008, I asked Hawaii to clarify their 10/31 statement, and they refused. The next month I issued a challenge specifically suggesting that those who were misleading about this issue should try to get them to clarify the October statement. Both of those were because the 10/31 statement was ambiguous.

Note that whoever typed the quote misspelled Obama's name and left out one of the quotes in "Hawai'i"; this post will be updated when the release is available on Hawaii's site.

Note also that she says he's a "natural-born American citizen"; is she qualified to make that determination?

And, it would be interesting to know exactly who and what prompted her to release this new information, something that would seem to be a violation of Hawaiian law unless she were given permission by Obama. If Obama himself did not give permission, was she given permission by Linda Lingle or similar?

UPDATE: The press release is available from hawaii.gov/health/about/pr/pressdate.html, and aside from the misspellings it matches what's above. That's the entire statement, so I've removed the ellipses.


"Note also that she says he's a "natural-born American citizen"; is she qualified to make that determination?" Easy. And it could be a true statement, but only if both parents are Americans. So which is it? Either the parents names on the COLB don't match the original bc, or Fukino is lying about his natural born status. If she is telling the truth, then the COLB is fraudulent. Because as it stands, there is no way that the person named on the COLB is natural born. Not even close. So, assuming Fukino declines to clarify or withdraw her statement, where to next?

well yes the head woman is a real racists. check out the obama race health bill page 895 it is about taking care of the black old the brown old and the yellow old and stops any kind of so called health care for old whites and young whites. obama bill on health care is now totally clear and its about mass butchery of the poor whites with the help of many whites, so check out the race of this chiyome Fukino.

Dude, you are a piece of work. Please keep this nonsense going for the next seven years, if you can.

I noticed the story has been revised several times, here's another link with more "new info". http://article.nationalreview.com/?q=ZTRjMTFhMzQxYmEzNjA2YWIwOTU4YWVjNzRmODE2NTI= "but we note for the record that his mother was a native of Kansas, whose residents have been citizens of the United States for a very long time, and whose children are citizens of the United States as well." Why did they add the Kansas residency of the Obama mom suddenly?

_obama bill on health care is now totally clear and its about mass butchery of the poor whites with the help of many whites, so check out the race of this chiyome Fukino._ Where do you kooks get this stuff?

pug read the bill open your eyes and stop fighting world war two. if people do not fight this new black rat nazi Obama you may see camps in many areas with really big ovens to remove the freedom loving people.

The state of Hawaii has made an unambiguous statement that Obama was born in Hawaii. Article II states: No person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President. The 14th Amendment states: All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. Supreme Court Majority Decision, US vs Wong Kim Ark states: The real object of the Fourteenth Amendment of the Constitution, in qualifying the words, "All persons born in the United States" by the addition "and subject to the jurisdiction thereof," would appear to have been to exclude, by the fewest and fittest words (besides children of members of the Indian tribes, standing in a peculiar relation to the National Government, unknown to the common law), the two classes of cases -- children born of alien enemies in hostile occupation and children of diplomatic representatives of a foreign State -- both of which, as has already been shown, by the law of England and by our own law from the time of the first settlement of the English colonies in America, had been recognized exceptions to the fundamental rule of citizenship by birth within the country." Since this interpretation remains precedent, and Obama is not a member of an Indian tribe, not born of an alien enemy in hostile occupation, not a child of diplomatic representatives of a foreign state, he is therefore, a citizen by virtue of his birth in Hawaii. Wait, is there a difference between citizen by birth and natural-born citizen? "The Amendment, in clear words and in manifest intent, includes the children born, within the territory of the United States, of all other persons, of whatever race or color, domiciled within the United States. Every citizen or subject of another country, while domiciled here, is within the allegiance and the protection, and consequently subject to the jurisdiction, of the United States. His allegiance to the United States is direct and immediate, and, although but local and temporary, continuing only so long as he remains within our territory, is yet, in the words of Lord Coke in Calvin's Case, 7 Rep. 6a, "strong enough to make a natural subject, for if he hath issue here, that issue is a natural-born subject;" and his child, as said by Mr. Binney in his essay before quoted, "if born in the country, is as much a citizen as the natural-born child of a citizen, and by operation of the same principle."

Dang women always confusing us.

Obama is a soviet monkey end of story.

Can somebody just tell me if he has a BC1, BC2, BC3, BC4 or BC5 Birth Certificate ? hidden away in microfiche world. Who cares if he is 43% Arab, 50% White and 6% African? It's great to finally have a Arabian President. The fine is $100-$1,000 for Hawaii to release the Vault copy without consent. Wouldn't that be cheaper than spending $1,000,000+++ to fight the lawsuits. Unless, the great one filled out some forms along the educational and professional highway that aren't actually the truth, maybe stretched a little. Haa, but who cares? Right.

If this is a true statement from somebody truly qualified to make this judgment, why is there so much variation in the spacing between the words. This suggests it was not really an official communication, and could easily have been forged. For those who have said that it is a "rendering issue" related to "browsers," I suggest you stop wearing yourself out defending this guy and just try to find the truth. If there were real evidence that he was born in the USA we would all know it by now!!!!!!!
