BREAKING NEWS – Hawaii state registrar Alvin Onaka has publicly certified to AZ SOS Ken Bennett that Barack Obama’s HI birth certificate is legally non-valid and the White House image is a forgery.
As reported to AL HENDERSHOT, Editor of The Obama Hustle.
Hawaii state registrar Alvin Onaka has publicly certified to AZ SOS Ken Bennett that Barack Obama’s HI birth certificate is legally non-valid and the White House image is a forgery. He also confirmed to KS SOS Kris Kobach that the information contained in the White House image isNOT “identical to” that in the official record.
Many of you have replied to concerned constituents that the matter is settled by the public statements of Hawaii officials, the HDOH birth index list, the newspaper birth announcements, and Obama’s posted short-form and long-form birth certificates. Onaka’s disclosure – the only one made by a HI official under oath –negates all that and fits the vast legal and forensic evidence collected so far, some of which is in my affidavit (privately posted at for NE criminal case #B2-119. Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his Cold Case Commander, Mike Zullo (both of whom initially disbelieved the skeptics) have both signed affidavits saying there is legal-quality FORENSIC evidence that Obama’s long-form birth certificate and draft registration are forged. Onaka has now revealed the REASON for the forgery: to hide the non-validity of the birth record. Evidence in my affidavit proves (among other things) that the 1960-64 birth index includes non-valid records.
Onaka’s disclosure is proof of results-altering election fraud in every state in this country, since fraudulent filing documents were used to place Obama on every state’s ballot. Absent a non-Hawaii birth record, Obama doesn’t even have a legally-determined birth date, place, or parents so nobody can lawfully say he meets the age or citizenship requirements to be President – and yet every Certification of Nomination falsely swears that he is eligible. EVERY electoral vote for Obama is thus now LEGALLY KNOWN to be fraudulently-obtained and must not be certified as lawful on Jan 8th. As with the Sandusky case, those with knowledge have legal responsibility to act, and that is now you.
Even if the majority in Congress wrongly certifies the electoral vote, that only makes Obama the President-elect. The 20th Amendment says that if the President-elect fails to qualify by Jan 20th, the Vice-President-elect must “act as President”. Without any legally-determined birth date, birth place, or birth parents, there is no way that Barack Obama could have qualified by Jan 20, 2009 – or can qualify by Jan 20, 2013, unless his birth facts ARE legally determined. The biggest favor any one of you can do for this whole process (and for Obama himself if he is to become President LAWFULLY) is to file a lawsuit (with standing) challenging Obama’s eligibility so that the records will be presented as evidence to a JUDICIAL OR ADMINISTRATIVE person or body (not legislative, according to Hawaii statute 338-17, so Congress is powerless on this issue) and birth facts determined. That’s the only way Obama can “qualify” by Jan 20, 2013.
Our President has committed perjury 6 times by swearing (in AZ, NC, and WV) that he is eligible, knowing that he has no valid HI birth certificate (and claiming a Kenyan birth in his bio until 2007), and let his spokesmen pass off two forgeries as genuine on his behalf. He knowingly allowed a decorated military surgeon to lose his life’s savings and retirement and spend 6 months in prison for simply wanting to know if his combat orders were lawful, or whether they Constitutionally had to come from Joe Biden instead – who OPPOSED the “surge”.
It appears that many felonies have been committed. An impeachment must precede a criminal investigation and trial, so failure to impeach is obstruction of equal protection & the rule of law – without which, none of your life’s work even matters because the laws you make will only be enforced when politically expedient to the powerful. A banana republic.

16 Civil Case Obama Challenges in Court!
URGENT: Sheriff Joe and the Cold Case Posse have successfully raised more than $7 MILLION dollars to fuel their law enforcement investigation of Barack Obama’s eligibility to be President of the United States after being compelled to do so by constituents concerned about the integrity of our ballots. And the Posse professionals found evidence of systemic fraud, forgery, corruption and cover-up! Now, we are demanding that Sheriff Joe and the Cold Case Posse put their money where their mouth is and FILE A CRIMINAL COMPLAINT!
After nearly a year investigating and two trips to Barack Obama’s alleged place of birth in Hawaii, Sheriff Joe and the Cold Case Posse detectives uncovered EVIDENCE of fraud and forgery. They have a judiciable case that a crime against our Constitution and each and every Citizen of the United States of America has occurred with the placement of Barack Obama’s name on our election ballots through FRAUD and FORGERY, with NO PROOF of his constitutional eligibility, and CRIMINAL CHARGES MUST BE FILED.
Barack Obama is driving this country into the ground – this is no time to sit on stacks and stacks of evidence! There are 16 ACTIVE civil court challenges to the Great One’s legitimacy already, but incredibly it is not yet enough for the truth to prevail!
But NONE of these are CRIMINAL CASES!
ALABAMA – An appeal has been filed after the original case against Barack Obama’s eligibility to appear on the ballot was dismissed this summer due to a technicality that Barack Obama was not yet the official Democratic Party candidate. (This case – which was dismissed by the Circuit Court of Appeals without cause or comment given, will likely be heard before the state Supreme Court and a panel of justices led by a Constitutionalist Chief Justice – is one of our best shots for finally getting real evidence introduced in court of Barack Obama’s eligibility (or more likely, ineligibility) as the case was filed presenting some of the Cold Case Posse discoveries and should force the panel to review that evidence in a court of law!)
FLORIDA – One active state case and another in the Court of Appeals are awaiting a judge’s verdict. These are also excellent cases, seriously argued by attorney Larry Klayman on solid legal grounds.
DC – A subpoena has been issued for Barack Obama’s Occidental College records in a legal challenge against the District’s Board of Election Supervisors for failing to vet the incumbent candidate. Additionally, there is an appeal of Freedom of Information in this case regarding Barack Obama’s apparently fraudulent use of Connecticut Social Security Number 042-68-4425 despite Obama having NO connection with the state!
NEW YORK – Two legal challenges.
CALIFORNIA – Three cases in the Court of Appeals as well as an application for the Supreme Court of the United States to STAY their certification of the California election pending confirmation of Barack Obama’s constitutional eligibility from the Supreme Court of California.
GEORGIA – There are two challenges, including a related appeal in the Supreme Court of the United States.
MARYLAND – Eligibility complaint against Obama is being appealed.
MISSISSIPPI – A racketeering complaint has been filed in a federal court against Obama, “Obama for America”, Nancy Pelosi, Hawaii Registrar Alvin Onaka and several others.
California Attorney Orly Taitz filed five of the above legal challenges and is continuing her crusade against the Obama eligibility cover-up. She is trying to get legal challenges raised in every state and an investigation launched in every county sheriff’s office to confirm to the nation AND the Obama faction that America KNOWS his occupancy of the Oval Office rests upon fraud – and that we will not rest until justice prevails
And then there is another challenge to Barack Obama in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.
ALL this makes clear that we are not alone in our fight for PROOF POSITIVE, and we MUST PERSERVERE IN THIS FIGHT! But with the news cycle ever-changing, we must keep up our constant vigilance and our constant demands for the truth!
The election is over – Sheriff Joe has nothing to lose but OUR support. Sheriff Joe and the Cold Case Posse MUST be compelled to file their criminal complaint, and press America’s case for the truth!
CRIMES have been committed. It’s obvious to anyone who takes the time to look at the evidence unearthed by the Cold Case Posse, and now it’s time for the next step… We MUST continue our fight for PROOF POSITIVE in COURTS across the country!
The so-called mainstream media is ignoring these cases and any evidence because they are looking out for themselves, not We the People. We will not be silenced into complicity with the unlawful Obama regime!
We must demand that our sheriff’s offices in our counties, and our state Attorneys General launch their own investigations into the integrity of Obama’s identity and ballot qualifications until the questions surrounding Obama’s constitutional eligibility can no longer be ignored by our courts or by Capitol Hill!
Cold Case Posse lead investigator Detective Mike Zullo recently signed a sworn affidavit that Hawaii officials are using “elaborate non-cooperation” to conceal Obama’s birth records, should they even exist, from law enforcement officers and the public.
After his two official visits to the Aloha State looking for answers, Cold Case Posse lead Detective Mike Zullo has instead returned with “a series of inconsistent and misleading representations” made by Hawaiian officials over the past year that he has been assigned to the case.
In his affidavit, Zullo is charging that Hawaii’s governor, deputy attorney general and health department chiefs are obstructing justice by “hiding” original birth records in an effort to stop the first ever (and only) law enforcement investigation of Barack Obama’s eligibility to be president of the United States.
Zullo alleges that the Hawaii Department of Health “has engaged in what the sheriff’s investigators believe is a systematic effort to hide from law enforcement and the public whatever original 1961 birth records the Hawaii Department of Health may have in its possession.”
Hawaii’s efforts to hide the evidence from America ranges from calculated policy and procedure changes to simply refusing to talk with credentialed Cold Case Posse investigators in Hawaii as part of a legitimate law enforcement investigation! Whether these stonewalling actions are out of fear or out of political loyalty to the Obama machine – they are part of a criminal conspiracy to conceal felonies and could well be making those participating accessories to federal felonies!
For example, when Detective Zullo went in person to Kapiolani Hospital, the alleged birthplace of Barack Husssein Obama II according to the PDF “birth record” released by the White House, Zullo was REFUSED the opportunity to view publicly available birth records for 1961, Obama’s year of birth.
The hospital wouldn’t even confirm that they had Obama’s birth records!
This left Zullo and other Cold Case Posse investigators unable to rule out the reputable theory that Barack Obama’s out-of-order birth certificate number was due to the borrowing (and modifying) of Virginia Sunahara’s – a little girl who was born in the same hospital around the same time as Barack Obama is said to have been delivered there. Virginia Sunahara died the day after her birth, and her official birth records (including her original long form birth certificate) remain under wraps not even available to family members…
America is NOT YET a banana republic where a petty dictator can defy the law and regulations that are to apply equally to all! This conduct is NOT LEGAL and MUST NOT GO UNCHALLENGED!
As reported by WND, four long years ago in 2008, Dr. Chiyome Fukino, the director of Hawaii’s State Department of Health, said she had “personally seen and verified that the Hawaii State Department of Health has Sen. Obama’s original birth certificate on record.”
Eight months later she changed her statement, claiming instead that she had seen “the original vital records verifying Barack Hussein Obama was born in Hawaii and is a natural-born American.”
We have to wonder what happened to compel her to change her statement…
More recently, while Jill Nagamine, Hawaii’s deputy attorney general, finally spoke to Zullo at his assistance, she “refused to verify the authenticity” of the birth certificate released by the White House.
That’s right – Nagamine refused to CONFIRM that the Obama document was in fact created by the Hawaii Department of Health, while hiding behind false accusations that Zullo did not have the legal authority to get verification of a birth record EVEN THOUGH the deputized investigators presented their law enforcement credentials to Hawaiian police before the interview!
Unfortunately, despite nearly a year spent officially investigating Barack Obama’s documented eligibility for the Oval Office, Sheriff Joe and the Cold Case Posse are still being stonewalled by the people who know and who have the power to end this investigation with the truth.
It is HIGH TIME for CRIMINAL COMPLAINTS to be filed…
Detective Zullo’s sworn affidavit came one week after the publication of another sworn statement presenting mathematical analysis which demonstrates the near-zero probability that the PDF “birth certificate” released by the White House in April 2011 is genuine.
As we have explained earlier, the Aloha State in 1961 permitted Hawaiian resident parents of children born anywhere in the world to be registered as Hawaiian-born, and thus gain a backdoor route to ‘official’ U.S. Citizenship. (Additionally, the announcement of Obama’s birth in two newspapers is NOT evidence of his birth in Hawaii because these liberally-dispensed Hawaiian birth certificates – including those of foreign-born children – were included in the archives from which the local newspapers pulled their birth announcement details! It is the old data truism: garbage in, garbage out.)
And while this muddle all would no doubt have remained very sufficient as a nativity story for someone running and serving merely in the U.S. Senate, it’s not so convenient for a sitting President of the United States. When Article II of the Constitution of the United States of American explicitly states that only a “natural-born citizen” can serve as president – the facts matter!
Hawaii governor Neil Abercrombie said he was present at Obama’s birth – and then he wasn’t.
Just like Nagamine and Fukino, Abercrombie later changed his story.
He “acknowledged that he did not see Obama’s parents with their newborn son at any hospital” though he later he said that he remembered seeing Obama as a child with his parents at social events.
Of course, this undocumented and unverified statement by Hawaii’s governor comes into question considering the plethora of evidence that Barack Obama Sr., Obama’s alleged father and namesake, was never together in a family unit with young Obama and his mother. Obama Sr. left the family behind to do his own thing, or namely to go to Harvard while Obama’s mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, left the Aloha state with newborn baby in tow to attend school in Washington state.
(Doesn’t leave much time for social events with the governor, does it?)
Despite Abercrombie’s promise to a Honolulu newspaper that he would search for definitive records to prove Obama was born in Hawaii, he has yet to make good on his word.
And it is doubtful that Abercrombie ever will stand by his early, honest 2012 comments of the corrosive effects of Obama’s eligibility scandal and evident cover up – that “The continuing eligibility controversy could hurt the president’s chances of re-election in 2012.” And that it would raise “political implications … that we simply cannot have.”
As Zullo said about Ambercromie’s retreat from defending Obama birth story, and from promising documented proof of the alleged Obama Hawaiian birth, “If such a document had existed, Abercrombie would have had it within minutes of his request.”
So far, the Posse has reported to Sheriff Joe that TWO crimes have been committed:
1) The fraud-riddled forgery created for and characterized by the White House, knowingly or unknowingly, as an official birth record of Barack Hussein Obama;
2) The fraudulent presentation of the White House forgery as “proof positive” of Barack Obama’s authentic 1961 long-form birth certificate to the residents of Maricopa County, where the investigation originated, and to the American public.
Despite the media blackout, despite the stonewalling, despite the ongoing criminal conduct and conspiracy to conceal the truth, and despite the lack of will in Congress, Obama is cornered with law enforcement expert evidence – criminal acts have been committed, and the force of justice MUST prevail.
Thanks to Sheriff Joe and the Cold Case Posse – and your continuing loyal support! – we now have enough evidence of fraud and forgery to present before a judge!
Is American jurisprudence so corrupt that none will hear the case? We don’t think so, but it is going to take the right court to hear our case – the people’s case – against Barack Hussein Obama!
With Barack Obama set to assume another term in January and our country on the verge of nose-diving over the fiscal and moral cliff, America MUST learn the truth before it’s too late! We MUST make sure that Obama is held to the rule of law, like every other person in America! We MUST convince a judge to hear this case!
Time to file CRIMINAL COMPLAINTS! TELL SHERIFF JOE YOU’RE BEHIND HIM AND THE COLD CASE POSSE ALL THE WAY!

Birther Movement (Obama Birth Certificate)
Updated: Aug. 24, 2012
The so-called birther movement began during the 2008 campaign when some of Barack Obama’s critics claimed, without offering proof, that he was born in Kenya, like his father, Barack Obama Sr. The Constitution states that no one born in another country is eligible to become president.
The charge has become a potent rallying point among Tea Party supporters, was a factor in the early stages of the race for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination and has led to legislation being introduced in a number of states to require candidates to certify their eligibility for office. Democrats have often responded with derision, and have criticized Republican leaders for failing to speak out against a conspiracy theory the president’s supporters see as being meant to undermine the legitimacy of Mr. Obama’s election.
The elder Mr. Obama was an exchange student at the University of Hawaii when he met and married Mr. Obama’s mother, Stanley Ann Dunham. The Obama campaign ultimately responded by releasing a “certification of live birth,” an official document from the Hawaii Department of Health, and posting it online on the White House Web site.
On April 27, 2011, President Obama posted a “long form’’ birth certificate from the state of Hawaii online at the White House Web site. It shows conclusively that Mr. Obama was born in Honolulu and is signed by state officials and his mother. In Hawaii, the “long form’’ certificates are not made public, and “certifications of live birth” are issued instead. The White House said that Mr. Obama had authorized Hawaii to release the long-form document broadly.
Mr. Obama acted in the face of poll results showing that almost half of Republican voters believed he had been born in another country and that almost a quarter said they did not know where he was born. Donald Trump, the real-estate mogul, had briefly surged in polls of Republican voters after he made questions about Mr. Obama’s birth a centerpiece of his public appearances.
The issue entered the presidential race again in August 2012, when Mitt Romney, then the presumptive Republican nominee, seemed to make a joke about President Obama’s birth certificate while speaking to voters in his home state of Michigan.
“Now I love being home in this place where Ann and I were raised, where both of us were born,” Mr. Romney said, standing alongside his wife, Ann, and his running mate, Representative Paul D. Ryan. “Ann was born in Henry Ford Hospital. I was born in Harper Hospital. No one’s ever asked to see my birth certificate. They know that this is the place that we were born and raised.”
The Romney campaign quickly scrambled to walk back his comments, saying he was simply sharing his Michigan pride. “The governor has always said, and has repeatedly said, he believes the president was born here in the United States,” said Kevin Madden, an adviser to Mr. Romney, who served as governor of Massachusetts.
During the 2008 campaign, two fact-checking groups, FactCheck.org and PolitiFact, had concluded the certificiation of live birth was authentic. A reporter for The Honolulu Advertiser also found two separate newspaper announcements of the president’s birth, one in The Advertiser on Aug. 13, 1961, and another in The Honolulu Star-Bulletin the next day. Both carried the words “Mr. and Mrs. Barack H. Obama, 6085 Kalanianaole Highway, son, Aug. 4.”
Still, the questions persisted. The certificate number is blacked out on the Internet copy, and Mr. Obama’s detractors demanded the release of his original long-form birth certificate, which in Hawaii is not considered a public record. The state was so besieged by inquiries that the governor, Linda Lingle, a Republican, signed a law allowing officials to ignore the queries as nuisances.
“I certainly hope by the fourth year of our administration that we’ll have dealt with this burgeoning birth controversy,” the White House press secretary, Robert Gibbs, told reporters in 2009. The fact-checkers at PolitiFact sounded similarly frustrated in a 2009 post: they thought they had put the matter to rest. “Oh, how naïve we were,” the post’s writer, Robert Farley, said.
But the issue remained potent among conservative voters. In April 2011, a New York Times-CBS News poll found that a plurality of Republican voters, 47 percent, said they believed Mr. Obama was born in another country; 22 percent said they did not know where he was born, and 32 percent said they believed he was born in the United States.
Among all voters, the same poll found that 57 percent of adults surveyed nationwide said Mr. Obama was born in the United States, versus 25 percent who said he was born in another country.
The issue helped give a boost to the potential presidential bid of Mr. Trump, who spoke often of his “real doubts” about whether Mr. Obama was born in this country and sent investigators to Hawaii to research the issue. An NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll showed Mr. Trump as the most favored candidate among Republicans who consider themselves Tea Party supporters.
Michelle Bachmann, another potential presidential candidate, told Fox News in mid-April that the president could clear up the matter by showing his birth certificate. In an interview with Sean Hannity, she said: “Let’s solve this and get it over with.”
One day later, Ms. Bachmann deemed herself satisfied when George Stephanopoulos of ABC News produced the certification of live birth, which is complete with a registration number, a signature from the registrar and a seal from the state of Hawaii. “Well then,” Ms. Bachmann said, “that should settle it.”
So-called birther bills have foundered or fallen dormant in at least five states and are still being debated in more than a half-dozen others. In Arizona, where both legislative chambers passed one such bill, Gov. Jan Brewer, a Republican, vetoed it, calling it “a bridge too far.”
Oklahoma, a deeply conservative state, could be the first to put its doubts into law, through a bill that would require all candidates, from Town Council hopeful on up, to provide certified proof that they meet the legal requirements for office.
Supporters of the measure, and others like it from Georgia to Montana, protest that they are not “birthers,” as doubters of Mr. Obama’s natal provenance have been dubbed, sometimes derisively. They say that they simply want to clarify the status of all candidates and that Mr. Obama’s case has only sharpened the issue and illuminated what they call a glaring hole in the statutes.

Arizona elections chief seeks proof of Obama’s citizenship
Ken Bennett (AP Photo/Ross D. Franklin, File)
(Reuters) – Arizona’s secretary of state said Friday he had asked officials in Hawaii to verify that Barack Obama was born in their state in order for the president’s name to appear on the November ballot in Arizona.
Ken Bennett, who is Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney‘s campaign co-chairman in Arizona, said he made the request on behalf of a constituent.
Most Republican critics of Obama have given up pushing widely discredited long-running allegations that he was not born in the United States.
Bennett said he is attempting to confirm that Obama’s name can appear on Arizona’s presidential ballot, the Arizona Republic newspaper said.
While confirming on Friday that he had made the request, Bennett said he did not buy into the “birther” belief.
“First, I have been on the record since 2009 that I believe the president was born in Hawaii. I am not a ‘birther,'” he said in a statement.
“At the request of a constituent, I asked the state of Hawaii for a for a verification in lieu of certified copy. We’re merely asking them to officially confirm they have the president’s birth certificate in their possession and are awaiting their response,” he said.
The White House has denied repeated claims that Obama was not born in the United States.
In April 2011, Obama released a longer version of his birth certificate to try to put to rest speculation that he was not born in the country as required by the U.S. Constitution to become president.
The Arizona Republic said Bennett made the request about eight weeks ago and communicated with Hawaii officials as early as four weeks ago.
Bennett’s office did not immediately return calls seeking further comment on Friday.
In March, Maricopa County Sheriff Arpaio declared Obama’s birth certificate a forgery following an investigation by a volunteer posse, acting at the request of conservative Tea Party activists in the Phoenix valley.
The move reviving the birther controversy by Bennett – who is the state’s elections chief – met with a weary response from local Democrats on Friday.
“Tea Party Republicans are at it again,” Luis Heredia, the executive director of the Arizona Democratic Party, told Reuters.
“By catering to right-wing extremists, Bennett is trying to score cheap political points while sacrificing common sense. Arizona deserves better. It is time to move our state forward.”
