Hawaii refuses to verify president's online COLBs

Officials mum on images released by Obama's campaign, FactCheck.org

In response to a direct question from WND, the Hawaii Department of Health refused to authenticate either of the two versions of President Obama's short-form Certificate of Live Birth, or COLB, posted online – neither the image produced by the Obama campaign nor the images released by FactCheck.org.

Janice Okubo, the public information officer for the Hawaii DOH, also had no explanation for why Dr. Chiyome Fukino's initial press release last October and subsequent press release last week also avoided declaring the posted images to be of authentic documents.

In June 2008, Ben LaBolt, an Obama campaign spokesman, released the initial short-form Obama COLB to various newspapers, including the Los Angeles Times, declaring, "This is Sen. Obama's birth certificate."

This short-form Obama COLB was released as a .jpg Internet image, displaying no signs of having been folded or of carrying an official State of Hawaii embossed seal.

COLB image released by Obama campaign June 2008

As demonstrated by a poster on Free Republic identified as "musicman," the COLB the Obama campaign released in June 2008 apparently had a date stamped on the back that bled through to the document's front side.

When magnified and reversed, the date "JUN 8 2007" appears to be legible.

When this short-form COLB was released, the Obama campaign did not explain who obtained the document from the Hawaii DOH or why the document had been held for a year before being released to the public.

Can’t read it. The type is too small. Please post a legible image.

And so it goes, and so it grows...

Despite the screeching of the hard left, the story refuses to die — and won’t, until all the facts are out.

"In response to a direct question from WND, the Hawaii Department of Health refused to authenticate either of the two versions of President Obama's short-form Certificate of Live Birth, or COLB,..."

Okay, I am finally fed up with everyone confusing the terminology regarding Birth Certificates, COLB'S, and so called long form Birth Certificates. I have held off posting about this "birther" stuff, hoping someone somewhere would finally get the terminology correct.

First: a COLB can be either a Certificate of Live Birth (COLB) that can be issued to anyone born in Hawaii. It includes the hospital name and location; the attending physician; the name of the Registrar.

Secondly: a COLB can also be a Certification of Live Birth (COLB), issued to anyone who wants a valid document birth in Hawaii - in other words you exist. Doesn't matter where you were born - Hawaii does this upon simple request.

Third: The so-called "long form" IS the Certificate (not Certification) of Live Birth. Still the acronym would be COLB. You folks really need to get your terminology down. Certification of Live Birth AND Certificate of Live Birth are both COLB's. The terminology you want is: Certificate of Live Birth.

And yes, many states will give you a short form if you don't pay the $10-20 to receive a certified copy of the long-form hospital generated Certificate of Live Birth.

I have a certified copy of my Certificate of Live Birth as requested in 1964, although the Certificate shows I was born in 1950.

It shows the hospital name and location, the father's occupation; the Mothers current address; the attending physicians signature; and most importantly, the Registrars signature and the date he recorded my birth in the County of Los Angeles.

Stop using the acronym COLB to try and prove your point. Once again, it stands for Certification of Live Birth and also Certificate of Live Birth.

Have you ever noticed on the lower right corner of your internet explorer status bar (if you have it selected as one of your toolbars) is a down arrow next to the 100%.
You can click on the down arrow and change the setting to 200% and read it clearly.

Good morning...

Thanks for that info...

By going to 400 I could see that all of the printing on the green Hawaii BC was the same

Generated at the same time on the same type writer or computer etc

A form in 1961 to be filled out by ttpewriter would be ready made with the “name” “date” etc spaces already annotated

and the added info would have looked different...plain to bold etc..maybe a different size...different font..

This one was not...

EVERYTHING is the same...

WOW...

I feel thrilled to be counted amongst BP2 and the other Fabulous Ferreting-Out FReepers who have done such wonderful online detective work ..

(In a small way on my side)

:)

Jst a couple of questions. Would the revision notice in the lower left hand corner of the document, the one ending with LASER, invalidate that “birth certificate”? What bearing would that have on the validity of that document?

How can there be any question about that this instrument is anything but FAKE???

On it it says: "ANY ALTERATIONS INVALIDATE THIS CERTIFICATE"!

It cannot be said more clearer that it is "invalidated"!!

The Certificate No has been blacked out, hmmm!!!

Producing the real birth certificate would solve all the questions.

Thing is, there is not a real natural born citizen birth certificate for Barack Hussein Obama, who is acting as POTUS illegally, which is why these questions will NEVER go away.

I may stop by the local bank for cake and ice cream after watching the birthday parade. There will be a parade, won't there? No tv here. I called the cable company to disconnect the cable, then donated the tv to goodwill.

No. 47O44?

Just coincidence that it is about the “47” year old “O”bama who is the “44”th President?

In ‘progressive’ neighborhoods, ACORN is lining up the floats and bands right now.

How about this...(my prediction) The One ‘needs’ to address the WH Press Corps. The Presstitutes spontaneously break into a joyous chorus of ‘Happy Birthday.’ A little ‘puff’ piece is done on the ‘well wishes’ on all of the alphabet nightly newsers; and BOR, at his Back of the Book segment panders with a ‘end of the birthday news cycle’ Happy Birthday.
