(Dec. 22, 2009) By now it is 5:00 pm in Honolulu, Hawaii. And the offices of the Department of Health are closed. So The Post & Email can go public with the fact that the Department is in open violation of Hawaii Law regarding the request made by its editor, Mr. John Charlton, on Sept. 27, 2009, and which on Dec. 8, 2009, the Office of Information Practices warned them of the violation and demanded they respond to the request by Dec. 21st.
The request I made did not regard Barack Hussein Obamas vital records. And that is what makes Dr. Fukinos refusal to respond to it all the more revealing.
What my request did refer to, was documentation which Hawaii Law clearly indicates must be disclosed to the public; documentation, which regards the manner in which the Department of Health conducts its public business.
The UIPA request of September 27, 2009
Here is the noxious request, that the citizen dared file with Janice Okubo, on Sept. 27th:

Looks like they are trying to set up a legal fund to sue Hawaii over their failure to comply with UPIA.

My thoughts on a Law Suit are as follows:
Those who have made UIPA requests and were refused, need to contact me (use contact form at top of page), and give me details on kind of request you made, and which part of Hawaii Law or Administative Rules you believe grants you the right to have your request heard.
Second, I will set up legal fund, and ask all interested citizens to send a donation and publicize its existence.
Third, I have already contacted 2 lawyers and will seek counsel on how to proceed. We want the info disclosed, that the prime objective.
Fourth, I have 2 projects in the works to get Obamas BC and other personal information. So stay tunned.
Lets not give up the fight, but lets fight all the more forcefullly!
Joe The Blogger says: "
I have already contacted 2 lawyers and will seek counsel on how to proceed.
Would one of the two lawyers that you have contacted be Phil Berg?
Would one of the two lawyers that you have contacted be Gary Kreep?
Mr. Charlton replies: I am obviously not going to comment about such matters or legal strategy in public. Weve see that does not work. Obots and even the White House read The Post & Email.
So dont ask in the future, because I will not permit such comments."
I made my donation. If he needs other people who have been rejected by HI Dept of Health, maybe I’ll write my own request to them.

Not only do we have local bloggers who hate the Mainstream Media, now national bloggers, who hate the Mainstream Media even more deeply, are branching out into our territory.
The Post & Email, a Connecticut-based Web site which describes itself as a new media initiative of American patriots, was apparently the first to report that Paul Tsukiyama has left as director of the state Office of Information Practices.
Tsukiyama did not have a large public profile -- he was mentioned in The Advertiser in three stories since being appointed by Gov. Linda Lingle in 2007, including a brief about his appointment -- but he led an important office.
Tsukiyama, an attorney, left in November for a job at the Hawaii Health Systems Corp., which oversees the states public hospitals. Cathy Takase is acting director at OIP until Lingle appoints a permanent replacement.
So while we will take our lickings for being scooped by the Post & Email, we will let readers decide whether their speculation about the reasons for Tsukiyamas departure is credible.
"Since it is a recurring theme with government officials who are in a position to expose Obama that they resign or get removed, or are promoted out of the way, I was intrigued to learn today of Tsukiyamas resignation, when I spoke with the OIP office by phone. "
Folks at the OIP and Lingles office said today that Tsukiyamas departure had nothing to do with a presidential cover-up. Tsukiyama could not immediately be reached for comment.

This is one of the best posts I’ve seen in a long time and having Atty. Joesting intervene is an extraordinary accomplishment. I remember Leo and Miss Tickly stating that she was one of the better State attorneys and this proves it ! I likewise had similar “non-compliant” issues with Ms. Okubo and Ms. Fukino (who, with all due respect to their positions, are indeed exhibiting nothing short of egregious criminal behavior patterns) and when I sent a letter to Atty. Joesting (about 2-3 months ago), with a litany of valid accusations, I rec’d a response that she was on vacation, so I forwarded it to Atty. Brooks. Well, despite my very well documented accusations of SEVERAL examples of blatant malfeasance displayed by the DOH, Ms. Brooks TOTALLY white-washed ALL of my accusations indicating that the State is overwhelmed with requests and they cannot handle addressing them adequately at this time.
I was hoping that with the three forerunners in these pursuits, Miss Tickly, Leo and Mr. Charleton, that SOMEONE would’ve made some headway by now, but I see it’ll be a LONG, HARD battle ! I am very interested in contributing toward this cause as I also employed an attorney to assist me in my pursuits, but after Ms. Brooks reply, it was the opinion of both myself and my attorney that the State just will not comply by their own laws, and unless someone is willing to file a lawsuit and make the commitment to visit HI for hearings, not much would be done about these, valid though they be.
Seeing Atty. Joesting’s letter is VERY encouraging, so let’s pursue this adamantly and with renewed vigor!
Possible lawsuit against Hawaii regarding non-compliance of the UPIA.
Here is another comment from the article.

The brilliance in this is that you were assigned to Linden Joesting. If you had requested something regarding a vital record you would have automatically been assigned to Cathy Takase and would have received no help at all. Shes the one who volunteered to do everything regarding vital records requests advise Okubo how to answer, judge whether she answered correctly, and (after Tsukiyama resigned and verbally asked her to act as director), give final approval for her opinion on whether she counseled Okubo to give the right answer.
Something else that should be known. The DOH is saying they are so inundated that they just dont have time to deal with requests. I sent in a request for all UIPA responses sent out by Okubo in the last 10 business days. I got a response today; in 10 business days she sent out 7 responses all denials of things she is required by law to give and at least one citing law incorrectly. The 2 weeks extended from Nov 28-Dec 10, and the only responses she sent out were on Dec 10th. So during the time that she was not answering your request, Mr. Charlton, she was NOT being kept from doing so because of a large volume of these requests that she was responding to. Nor were there any furlough days during those 2 weeks. She is not responding because she doesnt want to.

Smells very sinister. If the Muslim Messiah was legit, this wouldn’t be happening.
Welcome to what it feels like when your country has fallen to a dictatorship.
“natural born American citizen” -—when I heard that from Fukino, I knew the fix was in. Let’s see, who does the Hawaii DOH fear the most? A few bloggers or the full force and fraud of the White House and U.S. gubbermint.
They made their choice awhile ago. Who needs laws when you have the Chicago crime machine backing your play.
Perhaps John Charlton and others can direct their attention now to the governor's office, before commencing litigation in the courts.
Oh, no; the best way to get at this information is by lawsuit. It is highly public that way and makes it very obvious that the State of Hawaii has become a criminal organization.
How’s that for not mincing words!
