Tuesday evening, officials from Hawaii responded to Arpaio’s allegations that their lax laws on birth certificates could pose a national security threat, saying the allegations “are untrue, misinformed, and misconstrue Hawaii law.”
Joshua A. Wisch, Special Assistant to the Attorney General of Hawaii released this statement:
The State of Hawaii has repeatedly confirmed the indisputable evidence of President Obamas birth in Hawaii. An exhaustive accounting of this is provided on the State Department of Health (DOH) website (http://hawaii.gov/health/vital-records/obama.html). When this issue last arose in May, the Washington Post noted that the Hawaii Department of Health has released both the short and long forms of the presidents birth certificate; and that all this information, along with clear-as-a-bell explanations, is available to the public online. (http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/in-arizona-the-birther-plot-plays-on/2012/05/21/gIQAV9tYgU_story.html?tid=pm_pop)
President Obama was born in Honolulu, and his birth certificate is valid.
Regarding the latest allegations from a sheriff in Arizona, they are untrue, misinformed, and misconstrue Hawaii law. The purpose of section 338-17.8, Hawaii Revised Statutes (HRS), is to accommodate foreign-born individuals whose parents were residents of Hawaii but were temporarily outside of this state due to employment or military service. Similar to section 338-20.5, HRS, which provides for a certificate of foreign birth, anyone who receives a birth certificate under this section would have noted on their birth certificate the physical location of their actual birth. It does not confer citizenship, which is, of course, a power of the federal government.
We also note that section 338-17.8 was not passed until 1982, so it cannot apply to President Obama, who was born at the Kapiolani Maternity and Gynecological Hospital in Honolulu in 1961, as is reflected on his certificate of live birth, a copy of which can be viewed on the White House website, a link to which is provided on DOHs website.
Vital records in Hawaii have some of the highest levels of privacy protection in the nation. Not only are Hawaiis vital records some of the best managed, but they also have some of the strongest restrictions on access to prevent identity theft and fraud.

Exactly !!! That point keeps on having to be made. If Trump ever decides to defend his honor, that is the phrase he should repeat over and over. Plus it is perfect for bumper stickers !!!!
He needs no more authority than he already has under the state Constitution
The State of Hawaii has fought tooth and nail to avoid having anyone actually see the original record. Why?
What could possibly the reason if the original record is there? Why can they not just show it and be done with it?
IMO which isn’t worth anything, They are hiding factual information.
Sadly, you are absolutely correct.
Thanks for the explanation on Stig Waidelich's BC#. I had seen incomplete reference to it on another thread or two, and was wondering what that was all about.
The trail of corruption goes from the government in Hawaii to all of the other States, the entire upper echelons of the government, including, tragically, the military itself, up through the heads of state of other governments around the world, all pretending that this guy's legit.

Because Hawaii isn’t stupid, in the future socialist changeover of America the middle class will be eliminated.
It will be the working class and the elite. The working class won’t visit Hawaii and didn’t spend enough when they did.
The new Americans the socialized elites will have their American “dachas” in Hawaii. Just the the Russians did.
Ruusian people didn’t go visit Disney, Hawaii etc, no it was the politicians.
This is what Hawaii is investing in, to ensure it will be a politicians retreat, screw anyone else.
Whatever it was that Hawaii gave Obama,
it was not what Obama gave us.
Bears repeating. Well said, all!
Actually, RS was launching a jibe back at TCM's Alinsky-ite garbage in post #1. Hence this in post #30:
Tex-Con-Man - "I know it won't convert the true believers.
Well said, RS.
“All the DOH website says about this is that they gave OBAMAS LAWYER 2 CERTIFIED PHOTOCOPIES, and Obama posted something online.”
And yet, the Hawaii DOH and Onaka have also said:
“The information contained in the ‘Certificate of Live Birth’ published at http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2011/04/27/president-obamas-long-form-birth-certificate and reviewed by me on the date of this verification, a copy of which is attached with your request, matches the information contained in the original Certificate of Live Birth for Barack Hussein Obama, II on file with the State of Hawaii Department of Health”
I meant Tex-Con-Man. Didn’t put his name down.
