Barack Obama's birth certificate has become a focus of intense speculation – and even several lawsuits – WND has learned that Hawaii's Gov. Linda Lingle has placed the candidate's birth certificate under seal and instructed the state's Department of Health to make sure no one in the press obtains access to the original document under any circumstances. The governor's office officially declined a request made in writing by WND in Hawaii to obtain a copy of the hospital-generated original birth certificate of "It does not appear that Dr. Corsi is within any of these categories of persons with a direct and tangible interest in the birth certificate he seeks," wrote Roz Makuala, manager of constituent services in the governor's office, in an e-mailed response to a WND request seeking the information. Those listed as entitled to obtain a copy of an original birth certificate include the person born, or "registrant" according to the legal description from the office, the spouse or parent of the registrant, a descendant of the registrant, a person having a common ancestor with the registrant, a legal guardian of the registrant, or a person or agency acting on behalf of the registrant. WND was told the official reason for denial of access to birth certificate would be authority granted pursuant to Section 338-18 of the Hawaii Revised Statutes, a provision the anonymous source claimed was designed to prevent identity theft. Still, the source told WND confidentially the motivation for withholding the original birth certificate was political, although the source refused to disclose whether there was any information on the original birth certificate that would prove politically embarrassing to Obama. Get the book that started it all, Jerome Corsi's "The Obama Nation," autographed by the author, exclusively from WND's online store for the amazing low price of just $4.95. The source also refused to answer WND's question whether the original document on file with the Department of Health was a hospital-generated birth certificate or a registration of birth that may have been filed subsequent to the birth. The anonymous source made clear the Hawaii Department of Health would immediately release Obama's original birth certificate, provided Obama requested the document be released, but the Department of Heath has received no such request from the or from anyone acting officially on his behalf. WND also found on microfilm in the Honolulu downtown public library a notice published under the "Births, Deaths" section of the Honolulu Sunday Advertiser for August 13, 1961, on page B-6, noting: "Mr. and Mrs. II Obama. 6085 Kalanianaole-Hwy, son, Aug. 4." In searching through the birth notices of the Honolulu Advertiser for 1961, WND found many birth notices were published between one and two weeks after the date of birth listed. The notice in the Honolulu Advertiser does not list the hospital where the Obama son was born or the doctor who delivered the baby. In a startling development, Obama's Kenyan grandmother has reportedly alleged she witnessed Obama's birth at the Coast Provincial Hospital in Mombasa, Kenya. Friday, U.S. Federal judge Richard Barclay Surrick, a appointee, dismissed a lawsuit brought by Pennsylvania attorney Phillip J. Berg who alleged Obama was not a U.S. "natural born" citizen and therefore ineligible for the presidency under the specifications of the U.S. Constitution, under Article II, Section 1. Berg told WND last week he does not have a copy of a Kenyan birth certificate for Obama that he alleges exists. In Kenya, WND was told by government authorities that all documents concerning Obama were under seal until after the U.S. on November 4. The Obama campaign website entitled "Fight the Smears" posts a state of Hawaii "Certificate of Live Birth" which is obviously not the original birth certificate generated by the hospital where Obama reportedly was born. "Fight the Smears" declares, "The truth is, Barack Obama was born in the state of Hawaii in 1961, a native citizen of the United States of America." Although the Obama campaign could immediately put an end to all the challenges by simply producing the candidate's original birth certificate, it has not done so. And the "Fight the Smears" website offers no explanation as to why Obama has refused to request, and make public, an original hospital-generated birth certificate which the Hawaii Department of Health may possess. http://www.politifact.com/media/img/graphics/birthCertObama.jpg xerxes Says: October 23, 2008 at 4:17 am After reviewing the Obominations ‘birth certificate’, i have the following problems with it. -date of birth is 1961, it appears to be typed on the certificate, yet the certificate says on the bottom left corner ‘Rev 11/01 LASER’. i don’t think it means nov. 1901. more like 2001, so it could not have been typed on this paper in 1961. -Perfect type, like a laser printer, and everything is perfectly aligned, like it was printed. personal computers and Word Perfect were not in existence in 1961. it would have to have been typed with a mechanical typewriter, and the letters would not be perfect and would not be perfectly aligned. my birth certificate is from 1981 and has these imperfections, why should one 20 years older be any better? -Where is the name and address of the hospital, or location of live birth if midwifed at home? mine has this info, why not this one? -My birth certificate does not ask for race of parents, but does ask state of birth (to establish nationality of parents). Nationality is necessary to establish citizenship, not race. -My birth certificate ask if birth was single or multiple, and number in a multiple birth. This is absent on Obamas. This document does not accurately document the birth. -My Birth Certificate has my mothers signature and date signed next to a statement that the document is true and accurate to the best of the signers knowledge, and a signature and date signed for the attending physician next to a statement that they attended the live birth and the document is true and accurate to the best of the signers knowledge. ALL OFFICIAL DOCUMENTS HAVE TO BE SIGNED, OBAMAS IS NOT!!! -There is a signature of the county registrar who filed the certificate on mine, where is it on Obamas? -Mine is an original copy of the original document, which is small and rectangular-meaning it is not typed on the copy paper. it is an actual certificate much like a traffic ticket in size. That is what is filled out and filed with the state office of vital records, and they copy it onto engraved paper and emboss it for you when you need an official copy. -My birth certificate ask for age of parents on date of birth, this is absent on Obamas. -there is a blacked out certificate number, but no county registrar number that would be needed for filling purposes. Certificates have a general number, much like a dry cleaning receipt, but the county or state would have a unique number for their records keeping. besides, this is a public record, so why black out the certificate number? If it REALLY exist, anyone could obtain an informational copy, so why blot out the certificate number? My personal conclusion? THIS IS A FAKE/FORGERY AND WOULD NOT EVEN BE SUITABLE TO GET YOU BACK AND FORTH ACROSS THE CANADIAN BORDER, LET ALONE ESTABLISH U.S. CITIZENSHIP TO THE DEGREE REQUIRED TO HOLD THE OFFICE OF PRESIDENCY.
