“OBAMA CAMPAIGNED ON TRANSPARENCY”
by Sharon Rondeau
Trump is a potential candidate for president for 2012 and has been featured on numerous television programs since he openly raised the question of why Obama has never released his original, long-form birth certificate proving that he was born in the United States. Trump released both his short-form and long-form birth certificates last week. The fact that Trump first released the short version and the next day the long-form version was described by ABC News as an “oversight.”
However, that would appear to be a double standard, as Barack Hussein Obama has never released his long-form document. The authenticity of the short-form “Certification of Live Birth” posted on several websites during the 2008 campaign bearing Obama’s name has been brought into question.
Was Trump’s release of the two documents a day apart a planned strategy to show the difference between them rather than “an oversight” or a “misstep?”
The Post & Email has been accurately quoted as having told a reporter from the Associated Press in Hawaii that Obama “does not possess a valid one [birth certificate].”
We asked Mr. Cohen how Mr. Trump’s attention became focused on Barack Obama’s eligibility to hold the office of president, and Mr. Cohen replied, “It is an issue that has existed for over four years. Mr. Trump demands transparency, something that Barack Obama based his campaign on, and he doesn’t understand why something which is so simple is being withheld, even to the point of retaining counsel and spending upwards of $2,000,000 to prevent the release of such common and inconsequential documents.”
Mr. Cohen stated that he is the designer of Mr. Trump’s exploratory website, www.shouldtrumprun.com.
The Post & Email has sent letters by certified mail to Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie, Lt. Gov. Brian Schatz, and Interim Department of Health Director Loretta J. Fuddy. Telephone calls made yesterday to all three offices yielded no return call nor email contact. One person answering the phone at Ms. Fuddy’s office stated that she recalled the letter and had forwarded it to Dr. Alvin Onaka, State Registrar and Chief of the Office of Health Status Monitoring of the Hawaii Department of Health, one of the three parties for whom a message was left.
Contrary to some news reports and statements by members of Congress, the State of Hawaii has never released Obama’s “vital records,” citing privacy laws, instead releasing minimal “birth index data.” A former resident of Hawaii, congressional candidate, and mother whose son was born in Hawaii pointed out to one of her U.S. senators’ aides the differences between the “Certification of Live Birth” and the “Certificate of Live Birth.”
This writer will be on the Revolution Radio program this evening at 9:00 p.m. EDT hosted by Dr. Kate Vandemoer, whose recent article was featured at The Post & Email. Dr. Kate also arranged a “Usurpathon” last September during which she and others met with Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin, which was prior to his court-martial and conviction for questioning Obama’s eligibility and therefore the lawfulness of his orders.
In an interview with Meredith Vieira, Donald Trump stated that he has investigators in Hawaii looking for Obama’s birth certificate and that the investigators “cannot believe what they’re finding.” Trump also described the U.S. Constitution as a “great document.”
