“THEY HAD TO MANUFACTURE A LONG-FORM”
by Sharon Rondeau
On June 8, 2008, an image of a short-form birth certificate, or “Certification of Live Birth,” apparently demonstrating Obama’s birth on August 4, 1961 in Honolulu, HI appeared at The Daily KOS, the Obama campaign’s “Fight the Smears” website, Politifact and other websites, reportedly to quell doubts that Obama was not born in the United States and therefore could be ineligible to serve as president.
Article II, Section 1, clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution requires that the president and commander-in-chief be a “natural born Citizen,” which most Americans understand to mean, “born in the United States.” However, some scholars believe that a simple birth in the country is insufficient to satisfy the “natural born” requirement and that the candidate’s parents must have possessed U.S. citizenship prior to his birth within the United States.
Questions about Obama’s presidential eligibility first arose in 2007 in light of credible, mainstream media reports stating that he was born in Kenya or Indonesia. As the primary cycle concluded and Obama received the Democratic nomination, many Americans became concerned that Obama’s reported assumption of Indonesian citizenship when he lived there as a child and his claimed British-citizen father were disqualifying factors in addition to questions over his birthplace.
In August 2008, Factcheck.org published a report in which it said that its “representatives got a chance to spend some time with the birth certificate, and we can attest to the fact that it is real and three-dimensional and resides at the Obama headquarters in Chicago. We can assure readers that the certificate does bear a raised seal, and that it’s stamped on the back by Hawaii state registrar Alvin T. Onaka (who uses a signature stamp rather than signing individual birth certificates). We even brought home a few photographs.”
Neither Jess Henig nor Joe Miller, whose names appear in the article as its writers, responded to The Post & Email’s questions surrounding the article by email or standard mail.
In its article, Factcheck linked to an HDOH form which a requester completes to request an official copy of a vital record. The link now leads to the HDOH home page. With the website having been updated, the new process for requesting a vital record begins here.
On August 17, 2015, The Post & Email published documentation received from Dr. Alvin Onaka, Hawaii State Registrar, through a UIPA request for the form or letter allegedly submitted by the Obama campaign to obtain a copy of the short-form birth certificate. Our request was granted in part by the release of a heavily-redacted “Official Receipt issued on May 30, 2007 in response to a request for a birth record and a marriage record and a payment of $20.00.
Onaka’s response, which we received by both standard mail and email, claimed that the Department did not possess the letter or form which was used to make the request.
Gibbs reacted similarly to Kinsolving’s question about a January 24, 2009 letter purportedly signed by Obama and addressed to “Kapi’olani Medical Center” which a WND investigation found had been proudly posted on the hospital’s website, then suddenly removed once questions about its authenticity were raised.
The text of the letter included Obama’s purported statement that Kapiolani is “the place of my birth,” a claim the hospital has never confirmed. However, then-Rep. Neil Abercrombie published a statement of his own on his congressional website:
Settling the question once and for all, he states that Kapiolani Medical Center for Women & Children “is the place of my birth. Hawaii has always been home to me.”
In a subsequent article posted on July 16, 2009, WND described the “letter” posted by Kapiolani as “a computer-generated image created with HTML code, the building blocks of websites.”
As Abercrombie left Congress to run for Hawaii governor in 2010, his congressional website is no longer active. After his successful gubernatorial election, Abercrombie pledged to release further documentation of Obama’s claimed birth in the state in order to quell rising doubts which could affect his Obama’s 2012 re-election prospects.
Ultimately, Abercrombie said that Hawaii law prevented the release of Obama’s birth record.
Abercrombie has never explained why he told the Honolulu Star Advertiser that Obama’s birth event “actually exists in the archives, written down…” when 17 months earlier, former HDOH Director Dr. Chiyome Fukino had said that she had “seen the original vital records maintained on file by the Hawai’i State Department of Health verifying Barack Hussein Obama was born in Hawai’i and is a natural-born American citizen.”
On July 9, 2009, WND reported that the image of a letter posted at the hospital’s website “is not a picture of an actual paper letter, but is merely a computer-created likeness of a letter.” As part of its reportage, WND wrote, “Within an hour of the posting of this story, Kapi’olani removed the image of the letter from its website.”
During Friday’s interview, Zullo told Gallups that the “problem” for Obama arose when early in 2011, then-businessman Donald Trump began to demand, not unlike Kinsolving, that the White House release Obama’s “long-form” birth certificate to prove his constitutional eligibility.
On April 27, 2011, the White House released what it said was a PDF scan of a certified copy of Obama’s “long-form” birth certificate in response to Obama’s request directed to then-HDOH Director Loretta Fuddy.
The five-year investigation which Zullo conducted under the auspices of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) led to the conclusion, shared by two forensic analysts, that the long-form birth certificate image is a “computer-generated forgery,” which neither the media, Congress, nor the FBI has ever investigated to the public’s knowledge.
Expounding on his explanation of an intrusion into the HDOH’s electronic records, Zullo said, “When you have computer breaches, now we’re talking about a different set of actors.”
“This was going to have some deep-state involvement,” Zullo continued, likening what he described as “a coordinated effort” to Hitler’s “conspiracy” to annihilate the Jews in Europe and the current scandals rocking Hollywood, the media, Congress and state legislators.
“You knew in your investigation years ago that people’s personal records were being breached by spooks, and you have the hard-copy evidence to prove it, but people called you a liar back then,” Gallups said, a statement with which Zullo agreed.
Speaking of former Maricopa County Sheriff Joseph Arpaio, Zullo said, “We never told you this before, but we knew this was happening. We had nowhere to turn. This was a coordinated effort between the White House, the DOJ, the FBI, the Secret Service, and Selective Service, and mainstream media, to kill this issue.”
Gallups responded that some of the same government employees “are still there” and that “there is much more” evidence Zullo has not yet made public.
He reminded the audience that former Rep. Jeff Miller’s office had promised to conduct a face-to-face meeting with Zullo and then pretended to never have extended the invitation.
“When you and I came on the air back then and started talking about ‘Deep State’ and ‘coordinated efforts,’ everybody thought we were conspiracy theorists; I mean, even people on the right — they couldn’t imagine, they couldn’t dream that that was happening…” Gallups said.
Zullo said that because he is no longer associated with the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office, he can now say that “I personally believe this is the greatest fraud ever committed on the American people; it is the easiest-solved fraud to ever be investigated; it would take them 15 minutes to get to the bottom of this, and yet nobody wants to look at it. There’s no place we can turn until the players turn.”
Zullo explained that professional investigators use a system with the acronym “RAVEN” to determine the credibility of accusers. While he said that sexual abusers should “be in jail” and “stay there forever,” “you have to understand what’s happening. The media is playing a mind-game with you, and they are pronouncing someone guilty absent of real evidence, merely an accusation, and that is very dangerous, because what it’s going to condition people to learn is, ‘If I lie about somebody, I can get my boss taken out…I have power because I fabricated stories.'”
“Now, extrapolate this back to the birth certificate,” Gallups said, calling the situation a “psyops going on on the entire nation.”
In response, Zullo said that the birth certificate stemmed from “the manufacture of direct evidence to support a false narrative.”
