WILL REQUEST AFFECT ONGOING STATE BALLOT CHALLENGES TO OBAMA’S ELIGIBILITY?
by Sharon Rondeau
(May 17, 2012) — Dr. Jerome Corsi has reported that Ken Bennett, Secretary of State of Arizona, has asked officials in Hawaii to verify that the information presented to the public on April 27, 2011 in a “Certificate of Live Birth” by the White House is accurate after members of the Surprise, AZ Tea Party asked Bennett to investigate.
Dr. Orly Taitz, an attorney who has filed numerous challenges to Obama’s constitutional eligibility to serve as president as well as the authenticity of his documentation, quoted a member of the Surprise Tea Party as having said, “At this point, I do not know precisely what Bennett will or will not accept as “verification” but I do know he has been under intense pressure by constituents and others and that this question has been raised to him. We will just have to see what happens and what he does in the end.”
At 11:19 EDT today, The Post & Email contacted the Communications Office of the Arizona Secretary of State and spoke with a woman named Andrea, who told us that the Communications Director, who handles all media inquiries, was out of the office at a meeting. She took our contact information and also inquired as to the initial source of the information so that the director “would have some background” to address our inquiry.
Maricopa County, AZ Sheriff Joe Arpaio held a press conference on March 1, 2012, during which he and the Cold Case Posse which spent six months researching Obama’s birth certificate and Selective Service registration card pronounced that there was “probable cause” to believe both were “computer-generated forgeries.”
Atty. Orly Taitz had filed a lawsuit against Loretta Fuddy, Director of the Hawaii Department of Health, asking for access to the document purportedly on file with the Department bearing Obama’s name. Fuddy refused to comply with a subpoena from the U.S. District Court in Honolulu last summer, citing reasons of “privacy.” Taitz had stated that there was no privacy issue because the White House had already released the document allegedly kept in Hawaii Health Department files.
After a “Certification of Live Birth” was posted on several left-leaning websites in June 2008, numerous analysts stated that it was a forgery. Taitz also claims that Obama is using a social security number not originally assigned to him and filed a lawsuit against Social Security Administration Administrator Michael Astrue for refusing to release a certified copy of Obama’s application.
The lead investigator of Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse has requested to inspect the original Selective Service registration for Obama but has recently been told that both the microfilm and the “non-record copy” have been destroyed.
Obama claims he was born in Hawaii, but no hospital there has or will confirm that allegation. After the White House released the long-form birth certificate on April 27 last year, The Post & Email received the following statement from Kapiolani Medical Center, where Obama alleges he was born:
Kapi‘olani Medical Center for Women and Children cannot respond to media or other inquiries about President Barack Obama’s medical records or other related documentation. As a health care provider, we are prohibited by Federal privacy laws from providing confidential information without the patient’s specific authorization. Official certificates of birth are issued by the State Department of Health and not Kapi‘olani Medical Center for Women & Children.
Interviews will not be granted with hospital officials. Thank you.

The states of New Hampshire, Georgia, Alabama, Illinois, Mississippi, Hawaii, and Florida have all received challenges to Obama’s eligibility based on doubts about his birth in Hawaii or anywhere in the United States as well as his claim to a foreign-citizen father, allegedly rendering him ineligible to meet the U.S. Constitution’s requirement of “natural born Citizen.” Although the New Hampshire Secretary of State’s office had disqualified foreign-born presidential candidates in the recent past, it refused to take action on Obama, as did the New Hampshire Supreme Court when the matter was appealed.
Until now, no Secretary of State has demanded verification from Hawaii officials who have stated that Obama’s birth record is on file there. Some have opined that the state of Hawaii maintains the same forgery as that which was shown to the public last year. Hawaii now releases only the short-form birth certificate to requesters, although Fuddy made an exception for Obama if, in fact, Obama’s attorney, Judith Corley, actually retrieved the document from Hawaii shortly before its release.
A man who worked in the Hawaii Elections Office in 2008 stated that his supervisors had said that it was common knowledge that “There is no birth certificate for Obama” contained in state records. Prior to the release of the long-form birth certificate last year, a major news outlet had claimed that no birth records were available for Obama because they had been “destroyed.”
But Obama had said in his book that he had found his birth certificate during his high school years with some other personal items.
Many citizens have asked the FBI to investigate Obama’s documentation and claims of forgery of the birth certificate. The Post & Email’s inquiries have gone unanswered.
A ballot challenge dismissed by a New Jersey judge is scheduled to be heard on appeal on May 30, 2012 by telephonic means rather than in a courtroom. Will Arizona’s demand of Hawaii officials affect the case?
Of the development in Arizona, one of the plaintiffs on the New Jersey case, Nicholas Purpura, told The Post & Email today, “Those in New Jersey should take consideration here and keep him off the ballot until he shows us proof. It’s about time we have a Secretary of State with some courage, and I think this is absolutely incredibly beautiful for us. Now are they going to be a court of law or are they going to be cowards who hide behind closed doors and do what the political party tells them? I think this is a victory for all the citizens, not only those in New Jersey. This makes Purpura and Moran v. Obama a very important case. All three of us have been fighting for years to find out the truth. Maybe now, for the first time, the truth will come out, thanks to the courageous act of a Secretary of State in Arizona. Maybe we can now settle the issue that’s been splitting our country apart.”
