I remember that comment you made.
You should post on FR more often!
Go ahead and tell yourself that if it makes you happy.
“Everyday new hidden information is raising up to the surface!!”
Only in your mind.
“You just wish it will go away so that you don't need to pursue your talking points you are getting!!!”
I thought we Obots were supposed to be getting paid. If so, wouldn't we want to continue to pursue the talking points delivered to us in clandestine midnight drops so that we can still make whatever it is we're suppose to be making an hour?
Keep your paranoid conspiracy theories straight. The better quality paranoid delusions are intricate and hard to pick apart.
I think they’re really worried about this case.
It could be that all online birth certificates belong to dead people. That has certainly been my experience and I have accessed a large number of online birth certificates. Could you point me to an online resource that contains the birth certificates of living people?
And they/you don’t swear an Oath to the Constitution then???
Really? Please explain why so many birth certificates are available online to the public.
Birth certificates, and other vital records, are maintained and controlled by each respective state government. Some states are "open records" state, while other states have either no or limited access to particular records except for the subject or his/her next-of-kin. For example, Ohio is an open records state - virtually all vital records can be accessed by the public. VA, OTOH is not an open records state. To access some vital records, you must be next-of-kin, and you must provide identification, which will be photocopied and documented.
Hospitals are prohibited by federal law from granting access to any health records they maintain on current or prior patients, including the hospital's own copies of birth records. Most hospitals maintain copies of the birth certificates they generate for some period of time, usually decades or longer. Those particular copies are what are protected by HIPAA.
There are commercial sites available that do offer online access to birth documents. But, not every state participates, and not every birth document is available in every state. Again, it depends entirely on the state.
What is available in every state, is (generally) the name, the birth-date, and the sex of everyone born in that particular state and county. Sometimes this information is available online, other times you must appear in person.
I don't think you have an appreciation for how straightforward and pedestrian Lakin's court-martial will be. Any trial counsel so new his shoes aren't even broken in, could secure a conviction in this case. The questions of law that must be decided can only be described as remedial. And the facts speak for themselves - Lakin has made a videotape announcing that he didn't intend to deploy, and then he made a videotape confirming he didn't deploy.
I am uncertain whether this President is equipped to play back channel politics at this level."
There are no "back channel politics" in play here. Here's a clue - the military to include the military justice system was here LONG before Barack Obama came to town, and they'll be there LONG after Barack Obama leaves town. There are no political appointees in the military justice system, at all.
You seem to opine that there may be some "grand design" at play here by Lakin's civilian defense team. There isn't - at least there isn't any competent grand scheme. Lakin's primary civilian counsel had as close to ZERO military law experience as you can get. His own bio says he's tried "dozens" of cases - really? Dozens? He has also never been the attorney of record in any court-martial proceeding, nor has he ever been the attorney of record in any military appeal.
Lakin's attorney said this when speaking to WND a month or so ago about the chances of getting access to Obama's birth records...
"This is a criminal case, he noted, with a possible punishment of several years in jail. In order for a criminal defendant to defend himself in a criminal court he has to be given the opportunity to put on a defense.
Any competent attorney who has just limited experience in military law knows that this just isn't the case. That paragraph tells me everything I need to know about Lakin's lawyers - his civilian lawyers. He does have a very capable military lawyer detailed to him, but Lakin has made it clear that his civilian counsel is first chair.
Lakin's best hope on appeal is something based primarily on an ineffective assistance of counsel scheme - also, he might have an opportunity for a malpractice claim, should he come out the other side of this absent the ability to practice medicine for a period of time.
That would do a lot to help us think that you are not a total bozo!!!
Real soldiers what is that, or are you just trying to mimic Brandon Manning???
It seems for those Bradly Manning look-a-like posters that they are more concern about their personal career than what really is good for the country and the Constitution!!!
Forgive me for being blunt, but you're either being intentionally deceitful, or you have absolutely NO IDEA what you're talking about. Take your pick.
Here are the standards set forth in HIPAA regarding Individually Identifiable Health Information (IIHI). What does IIHI include? Well, HHS and 45 CFR Parts 160, spells it out this way...
(6) INDIVIDUALLY IDENTIFIABLE HEALTH INFORMATION.--The term 'individually identifiable health information' means any information, including demographic information collected from an individual, that--
(A) is created or received by a health care provider, health plan, employer, or health care clearinghouse; and
(B) relates to the past, present, or future physical or mental health or condition of an individual, the provision of health care to an individual, or the past, present, or future payment for the provision of health care to an individual, and--
(i) identifies the individual; or
(ii) with respect to which there is a reasonable basis to believe that the information can be used to identify the individual.
Gee, do you think that a BIRTH CERTIFICATE could be used to IDENTIFY someone? Or, in your world, do you think it's just fine and completely compatible to leave those old things just laying about for whatever passer-by to take?
HIPAA protects more than just a patients medical information. It protects ANY personal information the hospital collects on the patient, to include any personally identifiable, billing or even demographic information on the patient.
Either educate yourself, or quit making things up.
Saebarkah? First I’ve heard that name.
Verrrry interesting details.
You dig yourself deeper and deeper in water with all your Bradley rhetoric!
Your dear leader is an usurper and can therefore NOT be impeached!!
Home phone numbers are available all over the web, but if a hospital gives out a patient's home phone number, they've just violated HIPAA.
You're an idiot. There's no other way to describe it.
