Governor Abercrombie’s Bogus Quest to Prove Obama Was Born in Hawaii

Governor Abercrombie’s Bogus Quest to Prove Obama Was Born in Hawaii

By Mario Apuzzo
April 2, 2011

Hollywood celebrity journalist/radio host, Mike Evans, has known now Governor of Hawaii, Neil Abercrombie, for decades. He first met the Governor when the Governor was driving a cab in Honolulu, Hawaii. They became good friends. They spent a lot of time together in Washington during the time of Obama’s inauguration. Abercrombie told Evans then that he was going to run for Governor of Hawaii. He also told Evans that he remembered Obama as a child and that he used to call him Barry. He told him that once he became Governor, he was going to put an end to the story that Obama was not born in the United States by getting a copy of his birth certificate.

Abercrombie did become Governor and using his powers as Governor, he did look for the document. On January 19, 2011, Abercrombie told Evans during a telephone conversation that he searched everywhere for the birth certificate. He told him that he went to the only two hospitals that existed in Honolulu at the time at which a baby could be born, Kapi’olani Women’s and Children’s Hospital and Queen’s Hospital. Abercrombie told him that there is no Obama birth certificate in Hawaii and that there is absolutely no proof that Obama was born in Hawaii. Abercrombie also told Evans that he remembered Obama playing in a tee-ball league when he was about 5 or 6 but not before that. A confirmation of this information can be heard on a recording of an interview on the radio 92 KQRS Morning Show done on January 20, 2011. During this radio show, Mike Evans, recounts the details of his conversation he had with Governor Abercrombie just the day before.

A story on this new revelation and the radio interview can be heard at A full bio on Mike Evans can be seen at

On January 20, 2011, former Hawaii elections clerk Tim Adams signed an affidavit in which he swears that his supervisors in Hawaii told him that no long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate existed for Obama. He swears that he was also told that neither Queens Medical Center nor Kapi'olani Medical Center in Honolulu had any medical record showing that Obama was born in either facility. Read more: Hawaii official now swears: No Obama birth certificate

Governor Abercrombie then announced that he could do not more to prove Obama was born in Hawaii because it is against state law to release private documents such as his birth certificate. See the story here

The question now is if Abercrombie has not been able to find any Obama Hawaii birth certificate, why did he tell the public that he was abandoning his search for it because privacy laws prohibit him from disclosing the document? Let’s grant to Abercrombie that his efforts were thwarted by privacy laws. But what I do not understand is why he did not simply obtain Obama’s consent for the release of the birth certificate. After all, Abercrombie said that he was a friend of Obama's parents and knew him as a child.

What I also do not understand is why Abercrombie, who was so concerned about honoring Obama’s parents and the 2012 presidential election would give up on his quest so easily just because he cannot get the birth certificate released. Is the birth certificate the only piece of evidence that could prove or disprove an Obama Hawaiian birth? What happened to talking to family and friends from 1961 about an Obama birth in Hawaii? Is there no doctor, nurse, family member, friend, or official who remembered the Obama birth in Hawaii and could give Abercrombie confirming evidence of a Hawaiian birth? Abercrombie said that he was a friend of Obama's parents and knew him as a child. Why could Abercrombie not find any other evidence of an Obama birth in Hawaii? With the resources of the Governor’s Office and the publicity generated by this story, how could the Governor not find one person on the whole island of Hawaii or even from the mainland who could confirm with any real evidence that Obama was born in Hawaii?

There is also another highly suspect part to Abercrombie’s story. And that has to do with medical records. Hawaii Health Department has publicly released incomplete and inconclusive information which Obama supporters claim shows that Obama was born in Honolulu. During the 2008 election, Hawaii's Director of Health, Chiyome Fukino, said:

"There have been numerous requests for Sen. Barack Hussein Obama's official birth certificate. State law (Hawaii Revised Statutes §338-18) prohibits the release of a certified birth certificate to persons who do not have a tangible interest in the vital record. Therefore, I as Director of Health for the State of Hawai'i, along with the Registrar of Vital Statistics who has statutory authority to oversee and maintain these type of vital records, have personally seen and verified that the Hawaii State Department of Health has Sen. Obama's original birth certificate on record in accordance with state policies and procedures. No state official, including Governor Linda Lingle, has ever instructed that this vital record be handled in a manner different from any other vital record in the possession of the State of Hawaii."

Months later, in July 2009, she added:

"I, Dr. Chiyome Fukino, Director of the Hawaii State Department of Health, have seen the original vital records maintained on file by the Hawaii State Department of Health verifying Barack Hussein Obama was born in Hawaii and is a natural-born American. I have nothing further to add to this statement or my original statement issued in October 2008 over eight months ago."

As we can see, Dr. Fukino, a medical doctor, did not mention anything about the most compelling and probative evidence of a birth event, to wit, medical evidence. As I have reported in my May 6, 2010 article entitled, A Catalog of Evidence - Concerned Americans Have Good Reason to Doubt that Putative President Obama Was Born in Hawaii , Section 338-5 of the Hawaiian statute provides: "§338-5 Compulsory registration of births. Within the time prescribed by the department of health, a certificate of every birth shall be substantially completed and filed with the local agent of the department in the district in which the birth occurred, by the administrator or designated representative of the birthing facility, or physician, or midwife, or other legally authorized person in attendance at the birth; or if not so attended, by one of the parents. The birth facility shall make available to the department appropriate medical records for the purpose of monitoring compliance with the provisions of this chapter. [L 1949, c 327, §9; RL 1955, §57-8; am L Sp 1959 2d, c 1, §19; HRS §338-5; am L 1988, c 149, §1]."

Obama alleges he was born in Kapi'olani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital, now called Kapi’olani Medical Center for Women and Children. At no time during the ongoing public debate about whether Obama was born in Hawaii has any official from Hawaii at least informed the pubic that Obama's alleged vital records show that his birth certificate from 1961 was "completed and filed" with the health department in Honolulu by some official of that hospital or a physician or midwife associated with that institution. If Obama was born in a hospital as he claims, we cannot reasonably believe that his birth certificate would have been completed and filed by one of his parents. Additionally, under this statute, Hawaii has the power and authority to obtain medical records from Kapi'olani Medical Center to confirm Obama's alleged Hawaiian birth. At no time did Hawaii inform the American public that it in fact confirmed with that hospital that Obama was in fact born there which it can do under the cited statute. Hawaii has withheld this underlying evidence from the public. This withholding of evidence is a grave matter given that there exists such reasonable doubt as to whether Obama, the putative President and Commander in Chief of our military might, was in fact born in Hawaii.

Under Section 338-5, any birth certificate has to be completed and filed by some institution (hospital) or person (doctor, midwife, or parent). This statute also shows that Hawaii has the authority to confirm any reported birth by examining medical records. While Hawaii pretends to have come clean with the American public, it did not even provide such basic information or conduct such due diligence regarding extant medical evidence which would give the public that needed assurance that Obama's birth record is genuine.

With the State of Hawaii having such authority under Section 338-5 to confirm through medical records that a birth in fact occurred in a Hawaiian hospital, why did Abercrombie not confirm for the American people that the Obama birth file in Hawaii in fact shows that his birth event is corroborated with medical evidence from Kapi’olani Medical Center as is required by Section 338-5?  Are we to reasonably believe that there exists no medical evidence confirming Obama's birth in Hawaii that Governor Abercrombie can share with the American people? 

We will know what the underlying evidence is about Obama's alleged birth in Hawaii only if we can examine Obama's contemporaneous birth certificate from 1961, the long-form, hospital generated birth certificate, which should be readily available since Obama claims he was born in Kapi'olani Medical Center in 1961. That root document will tell us the name of the hospital in which he was born and the name of the doctor or midwife who delivered him. Those pieces of information are highly corroborative of the place and time of birth, for they provide a whole other dimension of contemporaneous facts that would support Hawaii's or anybody else's bare statement as to the place and time of Obama's registered birth.

Governor Abercrombie, you really need to do better for the majority of American people who want and are entitled to see credible and convincing proof of where Obama was born.

On January 19, 2011

and on January 25, 2011

I covered this same information. It is almost conclusive in the journalistic sense, that the only thing on file in Hawaii as regards Obama is a data entry of : Obama II, Barack Hussein, Male...."

As reported on January 21, 2011,

by the Honolulu Star Advertiser. Quote: “Health Department spokeswoman Janice Okubo again confirmed today that Obama's name is found in its alphabetical list of names of people born in Hawaii, maintained in bound copies available for public view. That information, called index data, shows a listing for "Obama II, Barack Hussein, Male," according to the department's website.” Unquote.

On December 27, 2010 (updated 12/31/2010)

I posted that Trevor Loudon of New Zealand had uncovered a pattern where Obama’s mentors or close associates in Hawaii and Illinois had direct ties to Soviet KGB in America.

On May 1, 2010, at his second Correspondent’s dinner,

Obama is on video remarking that he could not find his Birth Certificate. Quote: “There are few things in life that harder to find and more important to keep than love…well, love and a birth certificate.” Unquote.

In this instance,of NOT being able to find his Long Form Birth Certificate, I believe that he was being serious…and even as with Groucho Marx, who at times was serious in stating what he thought to be the truth and came off funny, so it was for Obama. To the audience, "truth IS the joke."

Even if you do not post this, please copy and save the information from these links and record the Youtube videos for later use in a legal action down the road. Thanks.

Janice Okubo has claimed that Certificates of Live Birth (Long-form Birth Certificates) were stopped being issued in 2001. I believe Janice Okubo is lying and it appears that long-form BCs were stopped being issued in 2009 right after Obama was elected. This was done to prevent anyone from getting a long-form BC because Obama didn't produce one. Hawaii is covering up for Obama. Below is proof this hypothesis.

Please note the following website:

Please note the following paragraph:

"The Department of Hawaiian Home Lands accepts both Certificates of Live Birth (original birth certificate) and Certifications of Live Birth because they are official government records documenting an individual’s birth. The Certificate of Live Birth generally has more information which is useful for genealogical purposes as compared to the Certification of Live Birth which is a computer-generated printout that provides specific details of a person’s birth. Although original birth certificates (Certificates of Live Birth) are preferred for their greater detail, the State Department of Health (DOH) no longer issues Certificates of Live Birth. When a request is made for a copy of a birth certificate, the DOH issues a Certification of Live Birth."

This is the current verison of the website and it states Certificates of Live Birth (Long-form Birth Certificates) are no longer available.

So?...Where is this going?

Now Observe an archived version of the website from 2008:

Note the following paragraph:

"In order to process your application, DHHL utilizes information that is found only on the original Certificate of Live Birth, which is either black or green. This is a more complete record of your birth than the Certification of Live Birth (a computer-generated printout). Submitting the original Certificate of Live Birth will save you time and money since the computer-generated Certification requires additional verification by DHHL."

If Janice Okubo is telling the truth, why did it take nearly 9 years for the State of Hawaii to reflect the fact that Hawaii no longer issues Certificates of Live Birth????

It is because people were able to make this connection and knew long-form BCs were still available. To cover for Obama, Hawaii had to change its rules in 2009 to prevent anyone from getting a long-form BC because Obama didn't produce one.

James said...

The day after Mike Evans said his statements, he apparently refuted them by stating he mispoke and did not speak with Governor Abercrombie.

This is a strawman. Mike Evans called nearly a half a dozen radio stations the day before and categorically stated he spoke with Governor Abercrombie himself.

I have absolutely no doubt in my mind that Mike Evans and Governor Abercrombie has such a conversation.

It is my belief that Mike Evans was told to retract his story probably by Governor Abercrombie.

As the story went viral, the Hawaii AG ran interference for Governor Abercrombie and citing privacy laws to die down the story.

James said...

If I am not mistaken, as of the current date, if someone orders a birth certificate from Hawaii, it will be known as a COLB - A "Certificate of Live Birth" not a "Certification of Live Birth". In effort to cover for Obama, Hawaii has changed its rules to defect the attention that Obama has failed to produce a "Certificate of Live Birth." Again, this is the continuing massive coverup that Hawaii has orchestrated the last 2.5 years.

New investigation in the birth announcements reveals stunning information

FINAL REPORT: Obama's Birth Announcements Fail To Indicate "Natural Born" Status
A new investigation of Obama’s birth announcements appearing in Hawaii’s two primary newspapers in August, 1961 shows, conclusively, they were the result of a registration record taken by the municipal health authority, not a medically verified “Live" birth documented as occurring at a Hawaiian hospital, per an officially defined "vital event" by the U.S. Department of Health, National Vital Statistics Division protocols.

Mario Apuzzo, Esq. said...

I have noticed how those who attack Donald Trump on his demanding that Obama should release to the American public his real birth certificate (like the two that Trump quickly released) have a lot to say about the man Trump but very little to say for Obama's nativity story. They sure are full of comments about Trump but very empty on facts which should show that Obama was born in Hawaii.

Mario Apuzzo, Esq. said...

President George Washington was a "citizen of the United States" at the time the Constituion was adopted and as such was grandfathered to be eligible to be President by Article II, Section 1, Clause 5. The problem with Obama is that he was born 174 years too late to benefit as did Washington from that special clause which allowed all the Founders and Framers to be eligible to be President. Obama's problem is that, if he was born in Hawaii (which he has yet to conclusively prove), at best he is a "citizen of the United States" like Washington but also like Washington he is not a "natural born Citizen."

After reading the article at the Daily Pen, wherein there was verification of birth announcements in Hawaii of births also announced abroad (e.g., Japan), I wonder - has there ever been any investigation of birth announcements in Kenya? Probably a stretch as Kenya was not exactly an advanced society in 1961, but is it possible that births there were publicly recorded somewhere that could verify that Barry was actually born there (if he was)?

Anonymous said...

Just a quick question. Do you know if Sen. Rubio's parents were naturalized before his birth? I hope so. He would make a fine cabinet member otherwise.

Zamas said...

What I've read is that the answer to the status of Rubio's parents is uncertain. He has apparently been asked that question in public and has avoided an answer. Note that in his new book, Dick Morris puts forth both Rubio and Jindal as potential pres candidates. Jindal's parent were clearly not citizens at his birth....Barry strikes again.

Anonymous said...

I do not understand why someone has not gone to the hospital in Kenya to get a BC for Obama similar to what Lucas Smith did. It is not that expensive especially compared to all the money spent these past years.

Is there some way to mount an expidition to Coast Hospital in Mombassa. maybe even take lucas smith with the entourage.

Anonymous said...

1) In 2008 I was intrigued by Phil Berg's lawsuit, and wondered how a child witnessed born in Kenya could be registered as born in Hawaii.

I found Haw Stat Rev § 338-5.

2) A clerk presented with a newborn from a Hawaiian resident mother, with no documentation from a licensed birthing facility, is obligated to register the birth per the statement of the parent.

The clerk, however, is required to call Hawaiian birthing facilities to make sure he isn't creating a duplicate record. The final step is to post a 'notice of birth' in the 'legals' sections of the newspapers.

3) There is a Houston radio talk show host married to an Indian woman, who is a lawyer. I wrote to him, asking to get her to investigate Jindal's birth parents and their alien status, thus Jindal not being a natural born citizen.

Such a statement from a Republican rising star would be fatal to the Democrats.

Texoma said...

Regarding the citizenship status of Rubio's parents at the time of his (Marco's) birth, one would think that this information would be available in the public records of Florida. Does anyone know how to find out from naturalization records if Rubio's parents became citizens before Rubio's birth in 1971?

It seems that they would have had plenty of time to do so, given that they arrived in Florida (after fleeing Cuba) in 1959. I have read that most Cuban refugees became US citizens by the mid-1960s.

On Fox News today, Rubio said that he would not be a Presidential or VP candidate in 2012, but he did not say anything about future elections.

Zamas said...

Not sure about Florida records as it relates to naturalization. I've read several times and heard it discussed on radio that Jindal was born while his parents were hear on work or student visas - they were not citizens. As for Rubio, I've not seen anything of substance suggesting that his parents were naturalized at his birth. Regardless, one would think it shouldn't be that hard to find out. You would think Rubio himself would clear it up....???

Anonymous said...

"You would think Rubio himself would clear it up....???"

This is what makes me believe his parents were not naturalized prior to Rubio's birth.

If he not eligible, it would a stand up thing to do to admit and give his parents citizenship status as the reason. That would throw a wrench in the discussion.

Thank you for your work Mr. Apuzzo.

I hope that many of you have had the opportuinity to read the current investigation and report concerning the two newspaper birth announcements entitled,

"FINAL REPORT: Obama's Birth Announcements Fail To Indicate "Natural Born" Status" and found at

The Obots have been busy attacking this research and report.

The point of the investigation and report is to show that the newspaper announcements are not your best evidence to prove that Obama was born in Hawaii. The research confirms what Commander Kerchner and I have stated numerous times that the information that generated the newspaper announcements routinely came from the Hawaii Department of Health and not from any medical facility.

It also shows that the newspapers only printed information that was given to them from the Health Department and would not nor could have verified the veracity of any such information.

We still have not seen any medical evidence of an Obama birth in Hawaii which is the root evidence and therefore the best evidence. This medical evidence should be readily available given that Obama says he was born in Kapi'olani Medical Center.

We also do not know what evidence exists in the Hawaii Department of Health file corroborating an alleged Hawaiian birth which should also serve as the foundation for what is stated in the 2007 Certification of Live Birth (COLB) which the Obama campaign posted on the internet in 2008.

All of the attacks on the report do not go to these central issues but rather address collateral matters.

Certification of Documents

I recently requested a copy of the Marriage License for my parents. I received the documents with certification, briefly summarized, as follows:

First: A certification by the Director, Department of Court Records with Seal of Court Division that the documents were “a true and correct Transcript of the record of marriage.”

Second: A certification by an Administrative Judge of the Court that the attestation by the above Director was duly made; the Director was “duly commissioned and qualified;” and “the seal annexed is the seal of said Court Division;” and “said attestation is in due form of law.”

Finally, the above Director certified that the Administrative Judge “by whom the foregoing certificate was given” was “duly commissioned, sworn and acting.”

Something similar to this should be required for certification of birth certificates and any other documents proving natural born citizenship status.

Given all the conflicting circumstantial evidence on where Obama was born, we need the root evidence, i.e., medical evidence such as the long-form, hospital generated birth certificate. This is the best evidence because it would contain 1961 contemporaneous evidence of the birth event allegedly in Hawaii, such as the name of the hospital, delivery doctor, and that of other witnesses, along with their signatures.

As you see, Donald Trump recently released his hospital birth certificate. He was born in 1946in Jamaica Hospital, Queens, New York, New York. Obama was born born in 1961, allegedly in Kapi'olani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital (now called Kapi'olani Medical Center for Women & Children), in Honolulu, Hawaii. It is a simple matter for Obama to release his hospital birth certificate like Trump did.

Obama's Hawaii birth-place issue would not be such an issue if so much other conflicting circumstantial evidence did not exist.
