Why Didn’t Hawaii Officials Verify Obama’s Birth Certificate Presented by White House?

Over the past few weeks, It’s been reported about the investigation of the birth certificate presented by the White House as being the official birth certificate of Barack Hussein Obama.

During the 2008 presidential campaign, many questioned if Obama was a natural born US citizen. One of the most vocal was former President Bill Clinton as he campaigned for Hillary’s run for the Democratic nomination. Mysteriously, Bill Clinton, who at the time was the loudest advocate of the Obama birther issue, suddenly went silent on the issue. Rumors have existed that he may have been threatened by backers of Obama’s campaign. One campaign worker testified she heard Bill Clinton receive a threat on daughter Chelsea’s life, but no official investigation of such a threat has ever been launched. All we know is that after that alleged incident, Bill Clinton stopped all questioning of Obama’s birth and right to run for president.

After Obama won the election and was sworn into office, nearly 250 residents petitioned Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio to investigate Obama’s birth certificate and the Cold Case Posse began an investigation, led by Mike Zullo. At the beginning, Arpaio and Zullo stated that they were obligated to investigate because of the petition of the citizens, but that their aim in the investigation was to clear Obama of any wrong doing and prove that he was indeed eligible to run and serve as president.

However, at almost every stage of the investigation, Zullo and his Cold Case Posse team ran into roadblocks that seemed to have been put in place to prevent anyone from learning the truth. Even other individuals born on the same day as Obama, have had difficulty accessing their own official Hawaiian birth records. It appears that the numbers issued in chronological order by the state have discrepancies that have not been explained, but since the originals are inaccessible and supposedly kept under lock and key, these discrepancies or other birth records from the same time cannot be verified.

The investigation also showed that around the time of Obama’s birth, the state of Hawaii had the policy of selling birth certificates to foreign nationals who visited the islands. During the time of Obama’s birth in 1961, many Japanese nationals applied for ‘unattended’ birth certificates for their own foreign children. They did this to make their children US citizens and entitle them to the privileges of citizenship. At the time of Hawaii’s statehood in 1959, Japan was still trying to rebuild itself from the financial and industrial devastation of World War II. As a new state, Hawaii needed revenue and one way they found to generate some revenue was to offer unattended birth certificates for a price.

The investigation by the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department Cold Case Posse studied the document presented by the White House and found that many sections of the document appeared to be copied from other documents and pasted together to create the long form Barack Obama birth certificate. They labeled the document to be a forgery and then stated that whoever was responsible for creating it and for presenting it as the official birth certificate of Obama, were guilty of fraud and recommended further investigation and charges be made.

It’s now being learned that Mike Zullo, the man who led the official Cold Case Posse investigation into Obama’s birth certificate, has said that Hawaii officials never verified the authenticity of the long form birth certificate. He said they verified the information of Obama’s birth but would not verify the long form birth certificate presented by the White House to be the official or a verified copy of the original birth certificate.

Per a recent release:

“The investigator for Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s team that reviewed the authenticity of the document the White House posted as ‘proof positive’ of Barack Obama’s Hawaiian birth says state officials never confirmed the document’s validity.”

“The ‘information’ about the birth, yes. But not the document itself, said Mike Zullo, and that raises serious questions…”

“Their conclusion is that it is not a copy of any original Hawaiian document, and while their investigation did not address whether Obama is a ‘natural-born citizen’ as the Constitution requires for presidents, or the political implications of such a forgery, they noted it certainly raises many questions going forward.”

“Their evidence, they say, showed how the digital images on the document released by Obama in a White House news conference were copied from another document.”

Honest people generally have nothing to hide, so this begs the question – ‘if Barack Obama has nothing to hide, then why has he gone to such lengths and personal expense to hide his birth records along with many of his other early records?’
