Hawaii’s New Plan: Birth Certificate Bingo at $100 a card ~ Everyone Knows the House Always Wins

I’ve been trying (at the urging of my editor) to find a “handle” for a new story on the eligibility issue, once again boiling, but like the paintpots of Yellowstone, not accomplishing much more than some bubbles, spit and a little heat to keep the herd from freezing to death over the harsh winter.

Well, here you go folks, Hawaiian legislators earlier this week submitted a bill which would allow the release of vital records of  ” persons of prominence”, for a fee of course.  Our government must now be working under the PT Barnum Doctrine that “there’s a sucker born every minute”.

CBS News reports:

Hawaii Bill would Grant Access to Obama’s Birth Records, for a Fee

In an attempt to end the “birther” myth that President Obama was not born in the United States (and thus not qualified to serve as president), five Democrats on the Hawaii state legislature have introduced a bill that would allow anyone to obtain a copy of President Obama’s birth records for a $100 fee.

“If it passes, it will calm the birthers down,” said Rep. Rida Cabanilla, the bill’s primary sponsor, the Associated Press reports. “All these people are still doubting it because they don’t want the birth certificate from Obama. They want it from our state office.”


Wild eyed and desperate Constitutionalists were ready to jump, shout and dance the eligibility jig, but you just knew in your gut that this was way too good to be true.

Hear the other shoe drop?  In an interview detailing the proposed bill one of the cynical, cash hungry, deceptive  legislators lets the cat out of the bag.

Why Hawaii now wants to sell ‘birth certificate’

State plans to create new document in bid to raise money for state coffers

Certification of Live Birth for Barack Obama is often questioned

Despite national press reports to the contrary, the Hawaii state legislature has no intention of releasing Barack Obama’s long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate – not even for $100.

By introducing HB1116 into the Hawaii legislature last week, five Democrats are giving the impression they are willing to make Obama’s long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate available to the public for a fee.

Instead, the plan is for the state of Hawaii to create a completely new document that will be carefully designed to carry the seal of the state of Hawaii without ever having to certify details of parentage and birthplace.

Hawaii’s Revised Statute HRS338 restricts making public birth certificate and other vital records only to those who have a “direct and tangible interest,” namely the person applying for the certified birth certificate copy, a member of the immediate family, or others with a legal interest such as an adoptive parent or a legal guardian.

Now, the language of HB1116 attempts to skirt these restrictions by modifying Hawaii law such that for a fee of $100, the Hawaii Department of Health will release “a copy of a birth record” for those HB1116 defines as “persons of prominence.”


The tip-off that the proposed legislation intends to withhold from public disclosure Obama’s long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate, if such a document exists, came in an interview with Democratic Rep. John Mizuno, one of the Democratic co-sponsors of the measure.

“If the people are so concerned about Barack Obama and if he was actually born in Hawaii, born in the United States, let them pay a fee of 100 bucks,” Mizuno told KHON2. “We can certainly use the money, and we don’t need to hear their complaining anymore.”

“We’re hoping to work with our legal department, the attorney general’s office, for an opinion to see if we can craft something which will justify that it is true, Barack Obama was born in Hawaii, and will have the state seal to certify that,” Mizuno told KHON2. “Something very generic but won’t violate any federal or state law.”

“The president of the United States, the No. 1 person in our country, from Hawaii – we need to capitalize,” he continued. “If we don’t take advantage of it, we’re out of our minds. This is a golden opportunity.”


So, we now know that this is a bold-faced bait and switch!  The State of  Hawaii is promising an official document, but the document which will be produced (sold) is an ersatz, yet-to-be-invented ‘certificate of authenticity’.  If you’re willing to buy this scam I have a original Hornus Wagner, baseball card to sell you.  As soon as I print up the documentation.

We “birthers” know that the document that they have posted all over the Internet (the COLB) is not legally acceptable and now they are creating an even less acceptable document, a “something generic to certify, with a State seal at the bottom.”  Well now, that gives me great confidence to know that official documents are so highly regarded by a State legislator.  No wonder illegal immigrants without papers are no big deal!  Shoot that bunny, we’ll stew it later.

We also know that Mike Evans, “celebrity journalist” and friend of the newly elected Governor of Hawaii has stated (and soon after retracted) that the Governor himself confided that He had searched the records, but “there is no birth certificate,” so why not just create a new “not-a-birth-certificate, but authentic- anyway, ’cause-he wrote -it-was so-in-his-dreamy-book” besides, we can’t prove he wasn’t born here, right?

Western Journalism reports that Mr Evan’s retraction was difficult due to his first statement’s oft repeated nature:

Celebrity Journalist: ‘I Never Spoke to Hawaii Gov About Obama Birth Certificate’

Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie with friend and confidant Mike Evans

A celebrity journalist now claims he misspoke when he said last week that Hawaii’s governor told him he was unable to find President Barack Obama’s original birth certificate after a search of state and hospital archives.

Mike Evans told FoxNews.com on Wednesday he was remorseful and embarrassed that he appeared to have given the impression that he had discussed the search for Obama’s birth certificate with Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie.

Evans, who says he has been a close friend of Abercrombie since the 1980s, appeared on Minnesota’s KQRS radio last week and said he’d been told by the governor himself that Obama’s birth certificate was nowhere to be found. Evans told KQRS on Jan. 20:

“Yesterday, talking to Neil’s office, Neil says that he searched everywhere using his powers as governor ….. there is no Barack Obama birth certificate in Hawaii. Absolutely no proof at all that he was born in Hawaii.”

{Apply pressure of some kind}

But that’s no longer Evans’ story.

“Only this I can you tell you is 100 percent fact: that Neil never told me there was no birth certificate,” Evans told Fox News. “I never talked to him.”

Another intriguing development from Hawaii was reported in the Hawai’i Free Press:

Abercrombie Administration admits lying about Palafox withdrawal

Neal Parafox, PhD

Adding to its developing reputation for secrecy, the Abercrombie Administration has now clearly lied about at least one aspect of the sudden withdrawal of Dr Neal Palafox’s DoH nomination.

In a short news release January 26, the administration clearly stated that Palafox had asked Governor Abercrombie to withdraw his nomination:

“Dr. Neal Palafox today asked Governor Neil Abercrombie to withdraw his nomination for Director of the State Department of Health. Governor Abercrombie accepted Dr. Palafox’s request and will make a new appointment for the Health Director as soon as possible.”

But this morning’s Star-Advertiser reveals that it was Abercrombie who insisted that Palafox withdraw.

“Gov. Neil Abercrombie asked Dr. Neal Palafox to withdraw his nomination as director of the state Department of Health, but the governor’s staff has declined to publicly disclose the reason….

“While the governor’s staff would not discuss the reasons or circumstances surrounding the sudden departure, Donalyn Dela Cruz, the governor’s spokeswoman, confirmed last night that it was the governor and not Palafox who asked for the withdrawal.”


Let me reinforce the true issue from the Constitution

Article II Section I clause 5:   “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; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.”

This has been interpreted in several Supreme Court cases as well as the plain, literal understanding to mean that eligibility requires two American citizen parents with allegiance to no other nation.  Simply it means that the person is a red blooded, loyal, second generation American citizen, truly a part of the matchless melting pot  that is our country.

According to Barack Hussein Obama’s autobiography and later admissions, at the time of his birth his Kenyan father was a British citizen and his mother was a young woman underage for transferring citizenship if her child’s father were a non-citizen.  The laws extant at his birth therefore assign him British citizenship (and not American at all, if he were not born in this nation and Barack Sr. is truly his father).

It matters not where he was born, which state, which hospital, which address, this is the law.  We are a nation of laws, not men.  We therefore do not make decisions according to race, emotion, on the basis of past wrongs, out of fear of “riots,” or by wishing to make things right.  Therefore, according to the laws of Britain and the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama is not eligible for the office of President of the United States.

There is, of course, much corroborating evidence to prove that Mr. Obama has deviated from the requirements simply stated in the Constitution, many irregularities, many facts withheld without cause, a great deal of effort and money expended to shield biographical material from public exposure and many, many questions as to the reasons behind these actions.    All of this is well documented at World Net Daily, which has done a yeoman’s work in this sea of mystery, as well as countless other sources, not the least of which is Leo Donofrio who has detailed the issue in the most circumspect, scholarly vein.

If the general media of America, the “paper of record” and even the Congress and the Courts choose to ignore these facts and to demean those who hold them to the highest standards of truth and adherence to the laws of our nation, well so be it, but I remain a proud and indefatigable “birther,” natural born American Citizen and patriot.  If those are now criminal offences then string me up….

“No man thinks more highly than I do of the patriotism, as well as abilities, of the very worthy gentlemen who have just addressed the House. But different men often see the same subject in different lights; and, therefore, I hope it will not be thought disrespectful to those gentlemen if, entertaining as I do opinions of a character very opposite to theirs, I shall speak forth my sentiments freely and without reserve. This is no time for ceremony. The questing before the House is one of awful moment to this country. For my own part, I consider it as nothing less than a question of freedom or slavery; and in proportion to the magnitude of the subject ought to be the freedom of the debate. It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.

Mr. President, it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and, having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.


They tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot? Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power. The millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations, and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, sir, we have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable–and let it come! I repeat it, sir, let it come.

It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace– but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!”

Patrick Henry, March 23, 1775
