Hawaii is desperate to protect the man it believes is its native son. It's considering unconstitutional (I believe) and totalitarian legislation to ignore questions by the People.
Who decides whether a question is legitimate, anyway? Can they just deem it illegitimate whenever they prefer?
The issue coincides with Sunshine Week, when news organizations promote open government and freedom of information.Hmm. Makes me think of totalitarianism, the way they want to treat people who ask questions.
"Do we really want to be known internationally as the Legislature that blocked any inquiries into where President Obama was born?" asked Rep. Cynthia Thielen, R-Kaneohe-Kailua. "When people want to get more information, the way to fuel that fire is to say, 'We're now going to draw down a veil of secrecy.'"
Attorney Peter Fritz asked why the state would pass a law punishing repetitive requests for open records. Instead, the state could simply say it would only answer each person's question once.
If the measure passed, the state Office of Information Practices could declare an individual a "vexatious requester" and restrict rights to government records for two years.
If passed, the law will only set a dangerous precedent.
For Leftists, they must realize that the same law would allow non-Leftist governments to ignore Leftists' questions, whether legitimate or not. Is this a risk they want to take?
Hawaii has claimed that they have Obama's REAL, ORIGINAL, AUTHENTIC, GENUINE, LONG-FORM, COMPLETE birth certificate.
But Obama himself has directed that no one be permitted to see it, even though millions want to see it so as to be satisfied that he actually meets the Constitution's Eligibility Clause requirements to be eligible to be President.
To date, no one has ever provided valid proof that this is the case.
There's a widespread urban legend that it's proven. But the funny thing is that no one offers any proof and simply says that anyone who wants to see proof is some kind of a nut or something.
Weird. The President could be an impostor, a criminal, an usurper.
Yet The People aren't allowed to know for sure that he's the real deal under the Constitution of the United States of America!
*Sigh*... I should mention to those who might assert that Obama's "birth certificate" was shown to us all, well, sorry, but that's actually false.
The "Certification of Live Birth" (COLB) uttered by the Obama Campaign propagandists during the election... that's just a condensed, electronically-generated document that, at the time of Obama's claimed birth, was issued by Hawaii for babies BORN ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, even though the birth was "registered" in Hawaii. Understand? Those leftist "fact-check" websites either don't, or they do, and they're lying through their teeth, acting as propagandist pawns.
