Celebrity Journalist: I Never Spoke to Hawaii Gov About Obama Birth Certificate
Fox News ^ | 1/26/2011 | Jana Winter

Posted on 01/26/2011 1:29:34 PM PST by Raebie

A celebrity journalist now claims he misspoke when he said last week that Hawaii’s governor told him he was unable to find President Barack Obama’s original birth certificate after a search of state and hospital archives.

Mike Evans told FoxNews.com on Wednesday he was remorseful and embarrassed that he appeared to have given the impression that he had discussed the search for Obama’s birth certificate with Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie.

Evans, who says he has been a close friend of Abercrombie since the 1980s, appeared on Minnesota’s KQRS radio last week and said he’d been told by the governor himself that Obama’s birth certificate was nowhere to be found. Evans told KQRS on Jan. 20:

"Yesterday, talking to Neil's office, Neil says that he searched everywhere using his powers as governor ..... there is no Barack Obama birth certificate in Hawaii. Absolutely no proof at all that he was born in Hawaii."

But that’s no longer Evans’ story.

“Only this I can you tell you is 100 percent fact: that Neil never told me there was no birth certificate,” Evans told Fox News. “I never talked to him.”

He has changed his story. Read this article again. I heard the tape of the first interview and it is quoted in this article. Now he’s reneging on what he said. Curious.

Yup, the guy has spoken out of both sides of his mouth. It should surprise no one that he’s a ‘friend’ of lefties like Aberscumbie. Kinda reminds me of a few of bastard barry’s stealth worshippers working FR.

We are still waiting for AberCrummie to clarify his buddy Mike Evans and the news that there is no Obama birth certificate. Evans still believes that Obama does not have a birth certificate.

Oh wait now... Abercrombie is still hiding behind his press secretary.

I understand a ‘false dichotomy” to be a false choice.

You presented the choice: “believing 0bama was born in Hawaii based on no supporting evidence,”

This is not a true statement. That you choose to reject all evidence doesn't mean there is no evidence.

Abercrombie would not comment to Fox News.
You know what....now that I hear this I am 100% sure it
is true. Before I was 99% thinking no guy would be dumb enough to drop that bomb. Now that he is denying it I know he said it. It is very strange...

No matter what the ball is is in Barry Soetoro AKA Obama’s court to unseal the damned thing if it exists.

Listen to the interview I posted. It's the one where he backtracks.

Evans keeps denying his own words...I would characterize him as birther clueless. Jerome Corsi joins the conversation and Evans pretty much admits he is ill-informed on the subject.

We know that Abercrombie did not tell Evans. The last time he spoke to Abercrombie according to Evans in the Boyles interview was during a C-SPAN interview the day after Obama was inaugurated.

And he told Boyles that he was going to follow up his call to Abercrombie.

““Mr. Evans, you never really talked to Gov Abercrombie did you, right? Cause that’s a real nice body you got there, be a real shame if somethin’ were to happen to it...yeah, it would be a real shame to see that nice body all messed up.””

That might be enough to deter some people, but not Judge David Carter, a Marine veteran and hero of Khe Sanh. That’s why I infer that threats against family are more likely to be the ultimate persuader.

He talked to “Neil’s office” and “Neil says.”
So...are there any sunshine laws over there? Do governors keep phone records?
Even then, there’s a way around it. Probably no recordings. All in all this sounds like an attempt to cover governor’s flanks. Discussing private medical info acquired because of his power as governor, must be a crime.

man this is getting almost comical.

Anyone who says there is no BC or anyone who says they will produce said BC, has to recant and back track within 48 hours of going on record publicly.

Obama must have a staff that is dedicated to calling these people and threatening them seriously. Or paying them off. I suspect the former.

These new shenanigans should wake up the new Congress to the fact that there is something very rotten in HI.

Are none of these new congress critters asking themselves what is going on or do they just accept Obama’s stonewalling?

So much for checks and balances.

Poor ol' Mike was told to go fall on his sword! Even he had to know what he said just two days ago! It is also archived, so he could have listened to his own words. Now, the bosses have told him to commit suicide for barry the bastard. Was it too soon to reveal soemthing? Is the timing off a bit?

What does it reveal about the current sonofabitch soiling the Oval Office that he has a platoon of garbage like El Sordo and others working conservative websites like FR so the wicked bastard can stave off exposure just a little longer? ...!

There is so much disinformation spewing around, it is hard to know what IS true. One thing we do know, Barry has been lying about his life, from his false claims of a family life with daddy Barack for years, right up through his lying to the IL bar association. The democrap party loves their almost black liar 'cause he was their guarantee that they could fool black people for at least one more election cycle.

It reamins to be seen if their agenda to end the Republic and install their federal oligarchy will succeed before We The People punish their anti-American asses and take back OUR Republic!

Then why doesn’t Obama unseal or release any of these...

birth documentation, kindergarten records, Punahou school records, Occidental College records, Columbia University records, Columbia thesis, Harvard Law School records, Harvard Law Review articles, scholarly articles from the University of Chicago, passport, medical records, his files from his years as an Illinois state senator, his Illinois State Bar Association records, any baptism records, and his adoption records.

If McCain or Bush didn’t release any of the above they would not have been Presidents. Why was Obama never vetted by the media?

Who is Barry Soetoro?

I just wish the truth behind this BC would come open far and wide and bring down this illegitimate POS and all his cronies.

For nothing else, then to shut up all the Conservatives and Libertarians (and of course all other nay-sayers) who have given birthers such a damn hard time about it.

It IS a legitimate concern. It IS a valid question.

If you have nothing to hide, why are you, Mr. Obama POS sir?

So the guy is now a certified lire no matter how you look at it. The question is which time was he lying? The first time when he had everything to lose by lying or the 2nd time when he stood to gain(in his own mind) by lying. The answer to that question should not be hard to figure out.

This is a good example of how the truth can be skewed in this sort of reporting. Using the word “admits” implies that this version is, in fact, the truth. Using the phrase “now claims” is still a bit inflamatory in that just as the word “admits” implies what is now being said is the truth, the word “claims” implies, though to a lesser degree, that the original statement was the truth, but at least the phrase “now claims” is closer to giving both stories equal trust. I guess the most “fair” way to say it would be “now says”.

However, regardless of that, one must ask hypothetically what would have motivated him to lie the first time, and do the same regarding what would motivate him to lie the second time. To make such a transparent reversal implies VERY strong motivation. And yes, I am thinking along the lines of fear of harm of some sort.

And here is the interview of Mike Evans, in his own voice, saying repeatedly that he never spoke to Abercrombie...

///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Other than the ‘back off’ of talking to Abercrombie DIRECTLY Mike Evans really did not ‘back off’ anything else.

‘...I called Niels office, Niel said...’

But Evans did NOT back off the content of what he either a) got directly from Abercrombie or b) had relayed to him through a worker at the office.

Actually if relay through a worker it would somewhat point to the fact of ‘common knowledge’ around the power players in Hawaii. Remember Tim Adams comment during an interview when he was told by a higher level supervisor - (paraphrasing) - “of course there is no birth certificate. What? You stupid.”

So it seems in Hawaii it is common knowledge - no birth certificate. Hence why Schatz did not sign an legally valid OCON for HDP.

In the audio above it appears Mike Evans (originally) said he spoke to Neil Abercombie’s **office**, which left him some wiggle room which has now become a denial and an accident of “misspoke”.

However, Evans had a LOT to say in that recording.
