For Immediate Release: October 31, 2008 08-93
STATEMENT BY DR. CHIYOME FUKINO
There have been numerous requests for Sen. Barack Hussein Obamas official birth certificate. State law (Hawaii 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 Hawaii, 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 Hawaii State Department of Health has Sen. Obamas 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 Hawaii.

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]
I’ll pick door 4.A.3... a Machiavelli- and Saul-Alinsky-style way to manipulate public opinion.

Anyone who cares about their country would be very concerned that a POTUS had hidden every scrap of information of his life that he possibly could.
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.
I firmly believe only a Tea party sized event upon Washington with the strong emphasis upon Obamas legal standing to be POTUS will crack the “force field” surrounding him.
this is the issue that will not die
let’s see it
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":
7 FAM 1133.2-2 Original Provisions and Amendments to Section 301
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.
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.
They definitely do. Google Sun Yat Sen's Hawaiian BC.
Then there's Nancy signing two slightly different worded statements for the candidate's eligibility at the DNC.
