(Oct. 21, 2011) — On October 12, 2011, Dr. Orly Taitz and Hawaii Assistant Attorney General Jill Nagamine appeared before Judge Rhonda Nishimura in Honolulu Circuit Court following Taitz’s request to inspect the original birth record of Barack Hussein Obama, who is serving as president but may not be constitutionally qualified by Article II, Section 1, clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution and has been accused of social security fraud.
Nagamine represented Health Director Loretta Fuddy, who had refused to comply with two subpoenas issued for disclosure of the birth record. Taitz stated on her website that she believed there has been a conflict of interest in Nagamine representing the Hawaii Department of Health because Nagamine’s husband had represented Obama’s half-sister in a divorce.
Fox Channel KHON-2 covered the court hearing.
Taitz has stated that a total of 135 newspapers across the country have now published articles touching on the Obama eligibility question.
In the past, Nagamine has refused to corroborate that Obama is a “natural-born American citizen,” a statement made by then-Health Department Director Dr. Chiyome Fukino. Earlier this year, Fukino stated in an interview with MSNBC that Obama’s original birth record was half-typed and half-handwritten, but the appearance of the image Obama released on April 27, 2011 does not match that description.
As an attorney, Taitz had issued a subpoena to Fuddy to produce the document last summer, followed up by a subpoena issued by the U.S. District Court in Honolulu. On the deadline date of August 8, 2011, surrogates for Fuddy presented a letter to Taitz stating that Obama’s original record could not be disclosed due to privacy concerns.
Taitz has argued that Obama has already waived his right to privacy because of his release of an image purported to be a certified copy of his original birth record on April 27, 2011.
Nishimura dismissed the case at the request of the attorney general’s office as shown in a brief video clip (courtesy ObamaReleaseYourRecords), but Taitz stated that the judge’s decision defies a Hawaii statute regarding government documents. Taitz also maintained that numerous experts have deemed the document Obama released in April a forgery.
Taitz had filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Washington, DC, alleging that the social security number which Obama is using was never assigned to him and therefore wished to inspect the Department’s birth records for Obama to determine if identity fraud has been committed. Last month she met with congressional staffers and legal counsel regarding the social security matter, on which The Post & Email reported here.
Obama has two relatives, both found to be illegal aliens in this country, who appear to have been using stolen social security numbers. Judge Royce Lamberth of the U.S. District Court in Washington, DC has stated that the public would not be served by discovering whether or not Obama is using a number fraudulently despite affidavits and statements from private investigators stating that he is.
The U.S. Congress, federal judges, and executive branch have all refused to investigate allegations that the purported long-form birth certificate released by the White House is a forgery. WorldNetDaily has published several reports from various document specialists stating that the document is a fraud, including a two-part series based on the work of Dr. Ron Polland, whom The Post & Email had interviewed regarding his initial evaluation of the April 27, 2011 White House release.
Taitz had requested production of the original document through a subpoena which she issued as an attorney, and later, by a subpoena issued by the U.S. District Court in Honolulu. Director of Health Loretta Fuddy had refused to comply with the subpoenas and was defended by Nagamine.
Dr. Taitz described the events of October 12 as follows:
I filed a case in Hawaii against the Director of Health, Loretta Fuddy, and their registrar, Dr. Alvin Onaka, and I was seeking the original birth certificate for expert inspection in light of the fact that it was provided to the public and in court by the U.S. attorneys. According to experts, it is a forgery. The Department of Health refused to comply. I filed a Freedom of information request according to their state statutes, and when they refused to comply, I filed a case in their circuit court.
We had a hearing on October 12, and what the state was arguing that I could not have access to the original document due to the consideration of privacy. It was very clear that the judge had marching orders to dismiss the case on the same basis. The hearing lasted about an hour, and Fox News Hawaii, Channel 2, was there and positioned a camera at the jury box and recorded the proceeding in full. Channel 8 was there as well. The judge had said only one camera could be in the courtroom.
The state argued “privacy.” When I came to my rebuttal, I stated to the judge, “Mr. Obama has waived his right to privacy because he released the document and privacy is no longer an excuse.”
I arose very early that day, and the first thing I did when I arrived in Hawaii was go to the court to verify the time and place of the hearing. I also went to the law library and made copies of their administrative statutes which are the same as everywhere else in the country. There is a statute under Title 8, Administrative Proceedings, Section 91-10, subsection 2, which states, “Documentary evidence may be received in the form of copies or excerpts if the original is not readily available, provided that upon request, parties should be given an opportunity to compare the copy with the original.” It’s clear. The judge clearly violated the rule pertaining to public proceedings.
The Deputy Attorney General’s husband handled Obama’s sister’s divorce, and there is a conflict of interest right there. Her husband is a private attorney for the Obama family. I wrote to Jill Nagamine previously asking her to confirm those facts and if true, recuse herself.
At that point, Nagamine was grasping at straws and came up with a new excuse, which was just unthinkable. Without citing any specific statutes, she stated that in the state of Hawaii, the rules are such that any verification necessary is answered by a “yes” or “no.”
Taitz stated that judges around the country have become “criminally complicit” in “covering up” for Obama’s ineligibility, “forgery,” and social security fraud. When The Post & Email asked her if she believed that “We the People” can do anything about it, she responded:
Absolutely. We see the Tea Party movement, Occupy Wall Street…I think it’s time to occupy the courts, the Congress, the White House. The people need to demand the removal from the bench of corrupt judges and removal from the Congress of corrupt congressmen. First and foremost, we need to clean up our completely corrupted election system. A foreign company, Dominion, which purchased most of our hardware and software as well as Diebold and Sequoia, controls our elections. We need to go back to elections being managed state by state, within the states, not by a foreign corporation, because there is so much evidence of corruption of the voting software and hardware. We need to go back to paper ballots as they did in Germany. We need people at the precincts counting those ballots. We need people verifying that voter registrations are valid. We have an unprecedented level of corruption in our election system, in our judiciary and our Congress. That’s how we have a complete fraud and a criminal sitting in the White House for the past three years.
We have to stand up to this.
Taitz reported that she plans to file “multiple appeals” in Hawaii and in Washington, DC. She is seeking donations for the “thousands and thousands of dollars” which the actions will necessitate. People so inclined may donate at her website.
