STATEMENT by Dr. Chiyome Fukino

For Immediate Release: October 31, 2008 08-93

STATEMENT BY DR. CHIYOME FUKINO

“There have been numerous requests for Sen. Barack Hussein Obama’s official birth certificate. State law (Hawai‘i Revised Statutes §338-18) prohibits the release of a certified birth certificate to persons who do not have a tangible interest in the vital record.

“Therefore, I as Director of Health for the State of Hawai‘i, along with the Registrar of Vital Statistics who has statutory authority to oversee and maintain these type of vital records, have personally seen and verified that the Hawai‘i State Department of Health has Sen. Obama’s original birth certificate on record in accordance with state policies and procedures. “No state official, including Governor Linda Lingle, has ever instructed that this vital record be handled in a manner different from any other vital record in the possession of the State of Hawai‘i.”

For consideration:

*****************

Hawaiian state law allows children born outside Hawaii get valid Hawaiian birth certificates (S. 338-17.8)

The following Hawaii state law (Hawaii Revised Statutes S. 338-17.8) allows children who are born outside Hawaii to obtain valid Hawaiian birth certificates, depending on the residency of their parents. This law isn't restricted to those born in the other 49 states; a child could be born in a foreign country and still get a valid HI birth certificate. This law was added in 1982, as confirmed by law librarians at the U. of Hawaii and L.A. County law libraries.

Note the fact that this applies to parents living in the "Territory" of Hawaii, an entity that was dissolved in 1959. If this law had been intended to only include children born in 1982 or later, would they have referred to the "Territory" of Hawaii? Clearly, this was intended to include those born before 1982 as well.

The source is here, and here's the text of that page:

[§338-17.8] Certificates for children born out of State. (a) Upon application of an adult or the legal parents of a minor child, the director of health shall issue a birth certificate for such adult or minor, provided that proof has been submitted to the director of health that the legal parents of such individual while living without the Territory or State of Hawaii had declared the Territory or State of Hawaii as their legal residence for at least one year immediately preceding the birth or adoption of such child.

(b) Proof of legal residency shall be submitted to the director of health in any manner that the director shall deem appropriate. The director of health may also adopt any rules pursuant to chapter 91 that he or she may deem necessary or proper to prevent fraudulent applications for birth certificates and to require any further information or proof of events necessary for completion of a birth certificate.

(c) The fee for each application for registration shall be established by rule adopted pursuant to chapter 91. [L 1982, c 182, §1]

Until Barry Sotero, AKA Barack Hussein Obama or WHATEVER that bastard calls himself, produces PROOF he is American born, he’s just an impostor to me.

This guy has relatives all over the globe. His flower child mother traveled from the U.S. to Indonesia to Kenya to who knows where in between IF the woman he claims was his mother really WAS his mother.

Soros bankrolled this guy along with the Desert Sheiks. His alleged mother and father died some time ago and his tale about his grandparents in Hawaii doesn’t impress me.
The mainstream media refused to vet him during the election.

ALL of that is a smoking gun pointing towards a fraudulent claim of citizenship.

I’m with you. He is definitely hiding something and seems to be getting a whole lot of help doing so. I believe the first thing he did as president was to seal those records..but, how come nobody could get them before that?

I personally dont believe he is eligible to be president..and I am not ashamed to admit it.

The root of the problem is the odd relationship between His mother and his putative father. Have the whereabouts of these two people during the pregnancy been determined ? If so, where and by whom?

I remember reading this article by Joe the Farmer last November and the sentence that hit me was, "It has been reported that the Kenyan government has sealed Obama's records." I thought, What records? Why would he have any records in Kenya. Hmmm.

If the lying bastard can be proven in court NOT to be a natural born citizen AND he can be proven to have DELIBERATELY presented himself as such, it would seem to me:

a) He can be removed from office and,
b) He can be prosecuted for fraud.

I would LOVE to see this bastard spend the rest of his life n a Federal penitentiary.

And who knows. If George Soros can be PROVEN to have aided and abetted this bastard, we can throw HIM in a Federal Pen too! I doubt if he would find an NAZI guards there to suck up to.

What is he Hiding and Why?

Edwin Vieira, Constitutional Lawyer: "at the inauguration. . he's aware he's not a citizen, then it's a perjured oath."

My favorite: "Silence can only be equated with fraud where there is a legal or moral duty to speak or where an inquiry left unanswered would be intentionally misleading." United States v Prudder, 424 F. 2d 1021(5thCir. 1970),cert. denied, 400 U.S. 831 (1970)

What a coward for not showing his Long Form Birth Certificate, not to mention his other bonafides.

What bugs me is the Dems were all ready to contest the “natural born citizen” status of McCain.

Exactly where is the dividing line between NBC and non-NBC?

I don’t know. I don’t think there is judicial case law on it, at least for the Presidential elections, and there is an argument that the electoral college is a non-judicial activity. Because the House and Senate have accepted the electors’ ballots, the eligibility may be resolved already. As I said, I don’t know. I am not a lawyer and even lawyers can differ on the finer points of the law.

Fine article, that is followed by a large number of uninformed and incorrect comments on American Thinker.

People still seem to be stuck on the "His mom was a citizen so Obama automatically became a citizen." IT'S NOT TRUE.

Obama's mother was too young to pass her American citizenship on to her son IF she gave birth outside the United States. She was eighteen, and the law at that time required that she have resided in the U.S. for at five years after age fourteen.

Here is confirmation of the "five years after age fourteen" requirement in a United States Department of State document from the Department of State website, "U.S. Department of State Foreign Affairs Manual Volume 7 - Consular Affairs":

http://www.state.gov/documents/organization/86757.pdf

Page 17:

7 FAM 1133.2-2 Original Provisions and Amendments to Section 301
(CT:CON-317; 12-08-2009)

a. Section 301 as Effective on December 24, 1952: When enacted in 1952,section 301 required a U.S. citizen married to an alien to have been physically present in the United States for ten years, including five after reaching the age of fourteen, to transmit citizenship to foreign-born children.

Couple that with a fraudulent claim of citizenship and you have a possible conspiracy to defraud the United States.

All Ineligible

All three of the 2008 presidential candidates, Obama (aka Soetoro), McCain, and Calero were not eligible under Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution to serve as Commander-in-Chief.

Just like a residential purchase of a home is void if fraud in the inducement (where one party conceals a material fact that if people knew about it ahead of time, they would not enter into a residential purchase of a home), the same thing has occurred with the primaries and presidential election on November 4, 2008.

Because these three candidates (Obama (aka Soetoro), McCain, and Calero) were ineligible under Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution, the 2008 presidential election and its results should be voided.

Regardless of what game of charades people in the mainstream media and people within our federal government are trying to pull. That is a legal fact that can not be disputed.

Obama has only one US citizen parent. His father was British subject and a Citizen of Kenya — as was Obama.

McCain was not born in the mainland US. John Sidney McCain III was born at the Colon Hospital, located at Avenida Melendez and 2nd Street, Manzanillo Island, City of Colon, Republic of Panama.

The time of birth on the birth certificate issued by Panama Railroad Company (which owned the Colon Hospital) was 5:25 PM and the day and date of birth was Saturday, August 29, 1936.

Calero was not born in the mainland US. He was born in Nicaragua.

Democrats Try To Change The Rules

On February 28, 2008, Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) introduced a bill to the Senate for consideration. That bill was known as S. 2678: Children of Military Families Natural Born Citizen Act. The bill was co-sponsored by Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL), Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY), Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ), and Sen. Thomas Coburn (R-OK).

Bill S. 2678 attempted to change article II, section 1, clause 5 of the Constitution of the United States with reference to the requirements of being a “natural born citizen” and hence; the entitlement to run for President of the United States.

This bill met the same fate that similar attempts to change the Constitution have in the past. Attempts such as The Natural Born Citizen Act were known to have failed and the text scrubbed from the internet, with only a shadow-cached copy left, that only the most curious public can find.

Sen. McCaskill, her co-sponsors, fellow colleagues and legal counsel, contend that the Constitution is ambiguous in article II, section 1 and requires clarification. But does it?

Senate Judicial Committee Chairman Says Obama Not Eligible — And Obama Agrees

On April 10, 2008, Sens. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) and Claire McCaskill (D-MO) introduced a resolution expressing the sense of the U.S. Senate that presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) was a ‘natural born Citizen,’ as specified in the Constitution and eligible to run for president.

Sen. McCaskill knew Obama was not a U.S. Citizen, that’s why she introduced this bill — dressing it up to look like it was in Sen. John McCain’s cause.

It was during the bill’s hearing that Sen. Patrick Leahy, Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, made the following statement:

“Because he was born to American citizens, there is no doubt in my mind that Senator McCain is a natural born citizen,” said Leahy. “I expect that this will be a unanimous resolution of the Senate.”

At a Judiciary Committee hearing on April 3, Leahy asked Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff, himself a former Federal judge, if he had doubts that McCain was eligible to serve as President.

“My assumption and my understanding is that if you are born of American parents, you are naturally a natural-born American citizen,” Chertoff replied.

“That is mine, too,” said Leahy.

What’s interesting here is that Sen. Leahy, the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary, confirms that a “natural born” citizen is the child of American citizen parents.

Parents — that’s two. That’s BOTH parents.

Every time the words, “citizen” and “parent,” are used by Sen. Leahy and Sec. Chertoff, the plural case, “citizens” and “parents,” is used. The plural case is the operative case.

It is Sen. Leahy’s opinion — his own recorded words, in a formal Senate Resolution and on his U. S. Senate website — that Barack Obama is not a “natural born” citizen, and therefore not eligible to serve as Commander-in-Chief, regardless of his birthplace.

Obama had one American parent —singular — his mother. His father was a citizen of Kenya, and a subject of Great Britain.

Obama, himself, “at birth,” was a citizen of Kenya, and a subject of Great Britain — he says so on his own campaign website. This fact introduces the concept of “divided loyalties,” — the reason the founders created the eligibility requirement in the first place — a fact that further underlines Obama’s ineligibility.

The source of this information is Sen. Leahy’s own website. The webpage contains a statement about the resolution; the resolution, itself; the Statement Of Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.); and an excerpt of Sec. Chertoff’s testimony.

The plural word “parents” is used four times. When used to identify the parents, the word “citizens” is used five times. That’s nine times that Sen. Leahy, on his own website describes the eligibility requirement. There is NO PLACE in any of these four documents where the singular case of “parent” or “citizen” is used.

The real purpose of this bill was to change article II, section 1, clause 5 of the Constitution of the United States with reference to the requirements of being a “natural born citizen” by the Democratic Party leadership — paving the way for an Obama run.

Both Leahy and Chertoff avoid addressing the “in the US mainland” (jus solis) element of the eligibility requirement and focus solely on parentage (Jus sanguinis) in making their arguments and by doing so bring focus to the fundamental reason Obama is not qualified. He had one American parent and one foreign parent. Barack Obama is not a natural born citizen — no matter where he was born.

Obama is a co-signer of this resolution. So, I guess he too agrees that one needs two American parents to be eligible for POTUS — except he doesn’t care — after all, he’s the Obamamessiah. Rules don’t apply to him.

***

35 Or 36

Since the 1870s, assorted Congress critters have attempted to define or redefine “natural born” citizen status nearly 30 times!

There were five attempts to re-define “natural born” citizen status since 2001 — that’s six attempts, if you include Sen. Leahy’s Resolution for McCain in March 2008.

Well, somebody should have made it clear..maybe if they did, we would be dealing with HIM now.

I honestly think someone should fix this and make it absolutely clear...so we dont ever have to go thru this again.

If they want to judge it by the parents..or by the child plus the parents..or just by the child. They should pick something, so there is an absolute law on who can be president and who cant.

If this law had been intended to only include children born in 1982 or later, would they have referred to the "Territory" of Hawaii? Clearly, this was intended to include those born before 1982 as well.

Actually, the law doesn't apply only to those in 1982 or later. The law is a little confusing because it is written in compound sentences. If you break it down into its parts ( as I have done in the bold type ) it becomes more clear :

Certificates for children born out of State. (a) Upon application of an adult or the legal parents of a minor child, the director of health shall issue a birth certificate for such adult or minor, provided that proof has been submitted to the director of health that the legal parents of such individual while living without the Territory or State of Hawaii had declared the Territory or State of Hawaii as their legal residence for at least one year immediately preceding the birth or adoption of such child.

As can be seen, someone today - who was born in 1964 or earlier - can go in and apply for a COLB as long as they can prove the residency requirement of the parent. An adult in 1982 would have been anyone born in 1964 or earlier. Therefore, it clearly doesn't apply to those born only after 1982.

Correction - Well actually someone today who is 18 or older can apply. The 1964 applied to the year 1982 when the law was written.

Well put STARWISE. The more deeply one pursues the definition and motivation for the additional requirement beyond native or citizen, that of having two citizen parents, the less doubt there is. France was a jus sanguinis - parentally-passed citizenship - country at the time of the revolution. The Alexander Morse Treatise on Citizenship is exhaustive on the history of natural law, the law of the Continent, or Roman law, as it was called by some. What the founders required was very consistent with the law of nations and thus with Vattel’s Law of Nations, and Alexander Hamilton said exactly that. English Common Law was arbitrary. A nation of laws needed an immutable foundation, not alterable by the legislature or “The King”. That is made clear in Vattel, but far from a new concept. Vattel cites Cicero.

One approach to learning about our foundations is to read Wolf and Pufendorf and Leibniz, precursors of Vattel. Another is to read the extensive discussions of citizenship in supreme court cases (some lower courts pay little attention to precedent, such as the Indiana Supreme Court in their recent decision which rewrites the History around Chester Arthur).

Legal scholars have spent volumes on citizenship since The Revolution: Alexander Morse, Piggot, Collins, Kent, Story, Desty. Then there are the last ten years. I did not realize there had been five attempts to redefine Article II since 2001. I knew of Orren Hatch, who subsequently forgot his understanding of what it was he tried to change in 2003. Do you include statutes, which cannot, of course, amend The Constitution? What are some other attempt to alter Article II Sect 1?

Being lazy, I usually depend upon a citation in the Herlihy Paper wherein she cites 24 attempts to amend the definition of natural born citizen. She, of course, in her 26 pages, doesn't mention Marshall, or Happersett, or Waite, or Venus, or Hamilton, or Jay, or Washington, but makes the advent of globalism the reason we need to admit children of aliens to the restricted class of presidential qualities.

Has someone preserved the “shadow-cached” bills which have been scrubbed? I, for example, saved the Herlihy Chicago-Kent Law Review article, noting that it was so obviously aimed at supporting an Obama run that it might be useful. Of course it disappeared from the Internet. It must still be on paper in law libraries, so it appears the Obama team is just buying time; until what? Do they expect to have replaced the 1st Amendment? Perhaps.

I think we had his genuine Kenyan birth certificate. Otherwise, why would the lib hackers change the reference numbers and so quickly?
