Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie says he wants to find a way for the state to release more information about Barack Obama’s birth to dispel conspiracy theories that he was born elsewhere.

But, truth be told, Hawaii has never released any information to the public, press or any controlling legal authorities to establish Obama’s constitutional eligibility for the office of president.

Did you know that?

Did you know that Hawaii has never even certified as original state issue the digital certification of live birth released by the Obama campaign in 2008?

Most people don’t – especially most of those in the media who seem offended that Americans actually want to see official documents, not just accept what talking heads tell them. In other words, we don’t even know with certainty that the minimalist document, easily re-created on any home computer and unworthy of a passport application, is the real deal, the genuine article.

Abercrombie also insists he was a friend of Obama’s parents and saw baby Obama with them in social settings.

I would suggest if Abercrombie wants to make that assertion he ought to do so with photographic evidence. The facts are plain and have been well-established and documented in WND reports: Barack Obama Sr. and Stanley Ann Dunham, the alleged birth parents of the man in the White House, never lived together as man and wife and certainly didn’t attend social functions together. Within two weeks of Obama’s birth Aug. 4, 1961, Stanley Ann Dunham was enrolled in college in Seattle. She wasn’t in Hawaii going to parties or political events with the Kenyan bigamist and pal of Abercrombie.

“What bothers me is that some people who should know better are trying to use this for political reasons,” Abercrombie told the Los Angeles Times. “Maybe I’m the only one in the country that could look you right in the eye right now and tell you, ‘I was here when that baby was born.'”

Well, it turns out Abercrombie didn’t really mean he was there in the hospital when that baby was born. We’re just supposed to believe that he has a vivid recollection of meeting with a relatively obscure family 49 years ago – despite the fact that this family was not intact and that members of this family never seemed to be in Hawaii at the same time, except possibly for two weeks immediately following the birth of the baby.

It seems the more Abercrombie talks, the more unbelievable his story gets.

And with good reason.

The new governor of Hawaii may have been involved in perpetrating a fraud on donors to the Kapi’olani Medical Center when he a read a letter, purportedly from Barack Obama on official White House letterhead, claiming he was born at that hospital. The event was a fundraiser for the hospital. Since this was as close as anyone had ever come to revealing the birthplace of Obama, WND asked the hospital about the letter featured on its website. Kapi’olani refused to confirm it was Obama’s birthplace and removed the image from the website.

Later, hospital officials said they’re sure the letter was genuine because it was produced by then-Rep. Neil Abercrombie.

Maybe this is the kind of evidence Abercrombie hopes to produce to address the festering doubts of tens of millions of Americans about Obama’s eligibility.

The truth is that people have doubts because of the veil of secrecy that has surrounded what should be one of the most innocent of all public documents – a birth certificate.

Why does it continue to be the focal point of national debate two years into Obama’s term of office?

Because he won’t release it.

Why won’t he release it?

Obviously, because he has something to hide.

When 58 percent of the American people don’t believe his birth narrative and he still won’t release it, you know something is wrong.

When they’re joking about the birth certificate on “Saturday Night Live” and “The Tonight Show” and he still won’t release it, you know something is wrong.

When Obama is spending millions defending against lawsuits to see his birth certificate rather than release it, you know something is wrong.

When his good friends Neil Abercrombie and Chris Matthews both say he should release the birth certificate and he won’t, you know something is wrong.

The only mystery around here is why 100 percent of Americans don’t yet recognize that something is wrong – very, very wrong.
