White House Blog Releases Obama’s Long Form COLB

Home - by - April 27, 2011 - 09:21 America/New_York - 67 Comments

Whitehouse.gov

In 2008, in response to media inquiries, the President’s campaign requested his birth certificate from the state of Hawaii. The state sent the campaign the President’s birth certificate, the same legal documentation provided to all Hawaiians as proof of birth in state, and the campaign immediately posted it on the internet. That birth certificate can be seen here (PDF).

When any citizen born in Hawaii requests their birth certificate, they receive exactly what the President received. In fact, the document posted on the campaign website is what Hawaiians use to get a driver’s license from the state and the document recognized by the Federal Government and the courts for all legal purposes. That’s because it is the birth certificate. This is not and should not be an open question.

The President believed the distraction over his birth certificate wasn’t good for the country. It may have been good politics and good TV, but it was bad for the American people and distracting from the many challenges we face as a country. Therefore, the President directed his counsel to review the legal authority for seeking access to the long form certificate and to request on that basis that the Hawaii State Department of Health make an exception to release a copy of his long form birth certificate. They granted that exception in part because of the tremendous volume of requests they had been getting. President Barack Obama’s long form birth certificate can be seen here (PDF):

At a time of great consequence for this country – when we should be debating how we win the future, reduce our deficit, deal with high gas prices, and bring stability to the Middle East, Washington, DC, was once again distracted by a fake issue.  The President’s hope is that with this step, we can move on to debating the bigger issues that matter to the American people and the future of the country.

    wtd commented:

    When did Hawaii begin using “African” as a race identity?

    previous attempt at providing this has different information on it . . .

    On the above image, Race of Father: “Negro-African”

    Today’s version states “African” only

    Section 5: Natality Guidelines for 1961 birth certificates

    “. . .Births in the United States in 1961 are classified for vital statistics into white, Negro, American Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Aleut, Eskimo, Hawaiian, and Part-Hawaiian (combined), and “other nonwhite”.

    On the image of the LFBC, Race of father is listed as “African” not “Negro” as the above would indicate was the norm for the year 1961. Strange.

    This attempt at providing the LFBC confirms Obama Sr. claims paternity which confirms “native born” status but automatically disqualifies the messiah from “natural born” status .

    If it is truly an authentic copy, then where is the notary seal? Look at the top of the document where the words “STATE OF HAWAII, CERTIFICATE OF LIVE BIRTH and DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH” appear. Not a font that was available, never mind used, in 1961. Look at the letter “K” in all of the “typewritten” words. In some places it is clear and sharp and in perfect alignment with the other letters and in others it has a soft outline, as if it were treated to a Gaussian blur in Photoshop AND it is not aligned vertically with the other letters. It should be either aligned or not, consistently across the document if, in fact, it were actually produced with a typewriter. Look at his name at the top. Behind the words are white space not matching the background pattern. Also, any name with Junior, II, etc. on any certificate I have seen, has had that suffix printed after the FIRST name. In this case it looks like it was added as an afterthought. I have never questioned that he was NATIVE-born in the USA. My question concerns his NATURAL-born status. The Founders of this Republic knew perfectly well which words to use when they drafted the Constitution. It was not an oversight that they used natural-born as opposed to native-born.

    The phrasing (“African” “Caucasian”) doesn’t match 1950′s-1960′s era birth certificates or other government documents. My own BC lists me as “White,” as well as my parents the same way. I’ve seen BC’s from that time of black people, and the common listing for race was “Negro.” I’m not saying this is a forgery, but I’m not convinced it’s genuine.

    The widow of the physician listed on President Obama’s purported birth certificate works on a state taskforce that advises the agency that released the document, Hawaii’s Department of Health, WND has learned.

    Following more than two years of controversy surrounding the issue, the White House today released a copy of President Obama’s “Certificate of Live Birth.”

    The certificate bears the signature of David A. Sinclair, a retired physician who died Aug. 20, 2003, at the age of 81.

    Sinclair’s wife, Ivalee Mae Sinclair, 82, works for the state of Hawaii’s legislature.

    A commenter on Citizen Wells asks a good question:

    “from another blog:

    “Kapiolani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital and according to the information there, the name of the hospital at the time of his birth should have been Kauikeolani Children’s Hospital. According to the web site the name didn’t change to Kapiolani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital until Kauikeolani Children’s Hospital merged with Kapi‘olani Maternity Home in 1978. So how could his official long form birth certificate that was generated in 1961 have the name of the hospital that wasn’t created until 1978?””
