(Jul. 13, 2017) — Several years ago, your humble servant penned a post here captioned “A 2012 Modest Proposal.”  That post suggested that then-candidate for president Mitt Romney should have obtained dozens of certified copies of his original birth certificate, circulated them to the media for forensic examination, and then called upon the Usurper-in-Chief to do the same.

Romney, of course, backed down in the face of withering media scorn for having the gall… the temerity… to again even suggest that more proof was need to confirm the usurper’s constitutional eligibility.  I mean, what more could one demand as unassailable proof of Obama’s constitutional eligibility than…. ahem… a picture of a document posted on the White House website burdened with more anomalies than Hillary Clinton has Bleach-Bitted e-mails?

That was back in 2012, when the debt was only $16 trillion.  Five years later – and eight years after the usurper seized the presidency – the debt is now $19.97 trillion, with no end in sight.  That was also when other people with “eligibility” issues also started flirting with running for president, including Senator Ted Cruz.

As noted here, here and most recently here, the issue of Ted Cruz’s eligibility to the presidency, and perhaps even his claim to a seat in the U.S. Senate, remains unresolved.

Yes, there have been “bipartisan” articles purporting to confirm his eligibility, despite having been born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, but questions remain.  Perhaps if the biggest eligibility question of our time – that of Barack Hussein Obama – could be resolved, the issue would finally evaporate into the ether.

Which brings us to the Modest Proposal for 2017, and one in which now-private-citizen and former president Obama could play an important and perhaps even indispensable role.

Specifically, if any remaining questions about his eligibility could be finally and dispositively answered, perhaps the issue of a person’s constitutional eligibility as a “natural born Citizen” under Art. 2, Sec. 1, Cl. 5 of the Constitution would be finally laid to rest without the need for a decision of the United States Supreme Court.  That could go a long way toward resolving the issue for candidates from all political parties, thereby bringing more stability to the process in the future.

Accordingly, now that Obama is (mercifully) out of office, and thus without exposure to impeachment and removal from same, there should no longer be any objection from him to waive any of his previously-held privacy concerns under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”).  Among those privacy concerns, of course, was (purportedly) the angst over seeking confirmation from the Kapi’olani Hospital itself in Honolulu that he was, in fact, actually born there.

In order to lay to rest the continuing “wild” and “conspiratorial” rumors that he was not born there but instead was born on the foreign soil of Kenya or Indonesia, all he would need to do is send a letter to the Kapi’olani Hospital telling them that they were free to confirm that he was, indeed, born there on August 4, 1961.  He might even instruct them to release a copy of his “souvenir” birth certificate supposedly given to his mother when he was born.

With the release of these documents, any further claims that Obama was not actually born at the Kapi’olani Hospital in Honolulu, and thus, the United States, might finally be put to rest.  And once that happens, any further questioning of Ted Cruz’s eligibility, or, for that matter, anyone else’s eligibility  – particularly in light of the scholarly article by former Justice Department Solicitor General Paul Clement (a Republican) and former Acting Solicitor General Neal Katyal (a Democrat) noted above – could finally be buried.


Moreover, since Obama has consistently and publicly announced to the world that Kapi’olani Hospital was his place of birth, even confirming that in writing to the hospital, it only makes sense to allow the hospital to itself confirm to the world that, yes indeed, Obama was born there.

Quite apart from the fact that Obama has already waived any claim of confidentiality or privacy with regard to such confirmation by “going public” with his assertions, the officials at Kapi’olani Hospital should be relieved of any worries or concerns that their confirmation of his birth there would violate HIPAA, since the only person with “standing” to complain would be Obama himself.  A written waiver by Obama of the privacy provisions under HIPAA should suffice to allow the hospital to assist in bringing this whole “eligibility” issue, finally, to closure.

Memo to Barack Hussein Obama: how about it, Mr. private-citizen Obama?  Are you willing to tell Kapi’olani to confirm what you have been saying all along, that is, that you were born there?  The Nation (or at least P&E readers) awaits your response.

Memo to P&E readers: don’t hold your breath.

  1. FWIW, I asked a friend we’ve known since college in so cal. if he knew if Obama was born at Kapiolani. He’s been on their board of directors since the early 2000s.

    His response:

    Yes, Stanley Ann is listed in birth log which is a permanent record. Other medical records are only kept six year.

    Copy of Obama’s letter is on display.

    They want to put up a plaque but Obama has to give okay. So far he hasn’t.

    I guess he would know

  2. Salon.com has a story on Montgomery. This was an interesting quote,

    “The blog pointed to audio supposedly from a “real estate billionaire” explaining the program to former Maricopa County, AZ, Sheriff Joe Arpaio and associate Mike Zullo and saying, “John Roberts, the chief justice of the Supreme Court, was hacked.” (Arpaio and Zullo are discredited figures who have pushed the false conspiracy theory that Obama’s birth certificate is fake).”


  3. Jonathan,

    Thanks for sharing your insights and info. I just read your inputs and downloaded a few of your shared articles. I am aware of a lot of stuff you have shared, but you are aiding the cause to inform and educate others that are new to this stuff. Thanks again for all your effort.

    Stephen, some of the answer is they don’t want the blow-back from attacking the first black president. Others have been threatened or are just don’t want to “rock the boat”. Others are in on it, while others are laying low to not get damaged. Still others think it isn’t worth it or that it is too old an item to make a difference. In working under Mike Volin for the past years and our trips to Washington, DC and lots of other efforts I have taken, this is what I sense. Once Arpaio’s court case is concluded, I sense positive action to occur.

    Cort, let’s get off the bench and get active. No war was ever won in retreat nor surrender.

  4. Sorry, to hog the microphone, Sharon and P&E readers, but I just sent this e-mail inquiry to Kapiolani Hospital ‘s website
    ( https://www.hawaiipacifichealth.org/kapiolani/about-us/contact-us/ ):

    It seems that your caring hospital system is all about cleanliness and healing.

    President Soetoro-Obama II has indicated in a publicized letter to Kapiolani Hospital that he was born in Kapiolani Hospital in 1961, however, I see no mention of this hugely historic fact in your website herein. Did I overlook something? Will this publicized historic birth fact, and said letter, eventually be heralded in Obama’s Library and your hospital’s hallways?

    Many Americans are healing from the Obama Years, and your candid factual response to them on why President Soetoro-Obama II is not mentioned as being one of its most famous patient/clients will be most appreciated.

    Response: Thank you for contacting Hawaii Pacific Health. Your information has been received.

  5. I sure wish someone would tell my why “our” elected “representatives” in Congress are afraid to address the issue. Being called racist does not hold any water. There must be a serious underlying issue somewhere, maybe that there are no Republicans, no Democrats, no Libertarians … just one big cesspool not worthy of being called a swamp.

  6. Even though I moved on long ago from this issue, I know it is a battle that must still be fought and won.

    At the intersection of difference forces, we have a proverbial Mexican stand off between the media and the public with the government, especially Congress, in a supporting role. Think of the final scene from The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.

    I am not sure what can be accomplished even if 100 million Americans agree there is a problem. Aside from sustained public pressure from an ever growing number of Americans – which rarely happens – I am not sure what will break through the media blockage.

    We really need a group of clever people to hatch a multi-component strategy to make this succeed.
