Obama 'birth hospital' hides White House letter
WND ^ | March 23, 2011 | Jerome R. Corsi

Posted on 03/23/2011 7:19:39 PM PDT by RobinMasters

NEW YORK – Obama's alleged birth hospital has locked in a storage vault a letter President Obama purportedly wrote to the hospital on Jan. 24, 2009, declaring it his birthplace.

For the past month, Hawaii State Senator Sam Slom, the only Republican in the Hawaiian State Senate, has been trying to get answers from Kapiolani Medical Center executives as to why the hospital has chosen to put under lock and key a letter from the White House that the hospital should have been proud to receive and display publicly.

In an email exchange with WND, Slom's office staff confirmed that Martha Smith, the hospital's chief operating officer, said a copy of the Obama letter is currently hung in the administrative section of the hospital, away from public view, while the original is stored for "safekeeping and preservation."

When Slom's office asked if the senator would be permitted to see the original letter, Smith responded in an email, "Nope sorry, we are not going to do that."

For weeks, WND has repeatedly left messages with Kapiolani spokeswomen Kaela Peters and Kristy Wantanabe at their offices in Honolulu, inquiring about the letter, without receiving a reply.

“Obama purportedly wrote to the hospital on Jan. 24, 2009, declaring it his birthplace”

Is that like an executive order? (snicker)

,Hitler said “great liars are also great magicians,” and “the great masses of the people will more easily fall victims to a big lie than to a small one.” Hitler actually described “The Big Lie” in his book “Mein Kampf” as a propaganda technique. He said the lie must be “so colossal” that no one would believe that someone “could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously.” 16 years later, Hitler’s propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels wrote in a Jan. 12th, 1941 article called “Churchill’s Lie Factory,” that, “The English follow the principle that when one lies, one should lie big, and stick to it. They keep up their lies, even at the risk of looking ridiculous.” He is also quoted saying, “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, the people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”
the lie is that huge about his past that it will take ahwile to uncover it

LMAO!

Yeah that’s the ticket I was born in Hawaii...

This is so obvious what’s going on here. The sad thing is that we have a congress and Republican party that will not do jack about it. They are too chicken $hit. Just like the border! This is why the Republican party has become a joke by ignoring the Elephant (no pun intended) in the room.

"should have been proud to receive and display publicly."

I believe from a previous FR thread, that this stems from a lawsuit from someone who said "prove it" when the hospital earlier boasted that they were the birthplace.

If the Republicans have no stomach for getting at the truth of Obama’s origin then they are useless and are practically co-conspirators. It’s their duty to stand up against all enemies foreign and domestic. Why can’t they see that?

Page #2 of the letter is a lawsuit filed, naming the hospital and attending staff as defendants for not fixing his horrifying congenital ear defects at the time of his birth.

Attached to that is the response from the hospital's attorney who claims that they don't fix congenital birth defects in Nairobi, Kenya.

You know, it’s almost to the point where any of the Big MSM could show that mock-up “birth certificate” on their evening broadcast and actually present it as real “proof” of BamBam’s legitimacy. Honest to God, that’s how badly the Powers That Be want this issue to go away.

Wow!

Well that settles it.

If Obama wrote a letter picking this hospital as the place of his birth and then they hung it up on a hidden wall in the hospital then it must be true.

Man and for all this time I thought Obama was born in Hell.

After all of these years of controversy it is a good thing that WND finally cleared this up for us all and reported on Obama’s newly written birth certificate.

Barak is really holding true to his promise for accountabiltity and transparency. Now we all rest easy knowing that he has declared his place of birth.

I wonder if they have a glowing star hanging over the letter and lay gifts around it?

Wow!!!!

Senator Slom should probably write Bill O’Reilly - he can probably find an old newspaper clipping that verifies Obie’s “birth hospital”.

They are real nervous. With Trump pushing this into the mainstream pop channels they can no longer call this a fringe issue.

You are going to have apolitical types start asking the question, “Why not just provide the BC and end it?”

They are losing the messaging on this.

What is so hilarious about this is that -

Who sends a letter to a hospital and says that they declare the hospital as their place of birth?

Wouldn’t the hospital already know?

Why would they need to hang a letter on a secret wall if they already had records of his birth there?

Still I am sure they are all so happy that they have been selected by the annointed one as the place of his birth.

Maybe we should all send them letters telling how we saw the star that night and were there as well to witnees the event. Then they could hang up our letters as well.

I am continually amazed at how many communists, nuts, and corrupt officials there are in Hawaii. I know that the Communist Party USA and its allies almost took over the Democrat Party in the late 40’s (Sen. Dan Inouye helped led the fight that prevented this), but the resurgence of the old marxist Left in politics - Abercrombie and Akaka - and the willingness of hospital officials, govt officials, and some in academia to cover up documents about Obama is a national scandal and should be investigated by Congress.

This picture has been floating around the internet for some time as being the birth picture but it has already been debunked.

This is a picture of Barry Soetoro and not Barack Hussein Obama. Many people seem to get the two confused but FactCheck.org and Snopes.com figured already debunked this picture a long time ago.

Sorry.

Now that everybody knows about the letter and what a big deal it is, maybe somebody will steal it and it will probably be an inside job. I doubt there is tight security for a letter in a hospital and at least someone getting their hands on the display copy shouldn’t be too hard (not that the display copy is a true copy of the original). There’s probably a lot of people who know where the letter is and how they could get a hold of it if they really wanted to. It might even end up on Ebay. But another thing to consider is FOIA, why should it be hidden?

One of our members has claimed it’s a HIPAA violation for the hospital to confirm Obama’s birth at the hospital. To publish this letter, they would have to have permission. If they do have permission, then they can now LEGALLY confirm if he was really born there or not. If he did NOT give permission to publish the letter, then this should result in a possible $250,000 fine and 10 years jail time (or something like that) if what the member said is actually true. Is that why they’re hiding the letter now?? It’s too late since it was published.

“FactCheck.org staffers have now seen, touched, examined and photographed the original Barry Soetoro. We conclude that it meets all of the requirements from the State Department for proving U.S. monkey business. Claims that the Soetoro lacks a brain or integrity are false. We have posted high-resolution photographs of the Soetoro as “supporting documents” to this article. Our conclusion: Soetoro was born as a Barry, just as he has always said.”

I wouldn’t be surprised, but it still wouldn’t mean that the hospital should be having a letter like that published when a couple of months earlier they said they could neither confirm nor deny that Obama was born there because of HIPAA regulations. It’s one more hole in the Obama nativity myth.

Well heck-If Hawaii is home ( to the dopehead ), then lots of vacations can be taken there-mostly on our dime. And the weather is just so fine there for lots and lots of golfing. And what a great place to retire. As opposed to Kenya or Indonesia, well, it just smacks of civilized tropical bliss.

It's not quite that simple (and I'm one of the co-authors of the HIPAA compliance manual for the Georgia Hospital Association).

First, let's hop to the end and get to the issue of penalties. Claims by an individual that his or her HIPAA rights have been violated must be brought by the individual. A state or federal agency can't simply bring those. Obama would have to go on record as bringing an action against the hospital for re-disclosing a letter than (a) he wrote to them to assist with a fund-raising campaign, and (b) had already been published in hospital fund-raising materials and the hospital's magazine, to which he apparently didn't complain at the time. Second, Obama's complaint goes to the Office of Civil Rights of the Department of Health and Human Services.

There are tiers of penalties. The $250,000 that you mention is only available if somebody intentionally provides protected health information with the intent to sell, transfer, or use the PHI for commercial advantage, personal gain, or malicious harm. That major fine is preserved for cases such as when somebody is stealing social security numbers.

Disclosing under a false pretense can get you up to $100K, but that's a maximum fine.

Simply knowingly disclosing starts with a $100 penalty. That's it. $100 dollars. In cases where you're a repeat violator, or you don't have any protections in place. or it's an egregious case, you technically COULD get up to $100,000. You simply don't see that happening.

In this case, where Obaama wrote the letter with the intent that it would be made public for fund raising, the hospital is not creating any additional harm to Obama, There are already copies all over the Internet. If they were penalized at all, it would be $100, although I doubt they would be penalized. And I've dealt with cases like this involving things much more sensitive than letters saying "hey guys, I was born there."
