Your Facts Are Useless on Me
Here’s a sterling example of how the fringe conservative Website WorldNetDaily, which has published more than 200 articles about Obama birth conspiracy theories, has made itself impenetrable to facts. The site finally got an interview with a Hawaiian official:
Hawaii state Registrar Dr. Alvin Onaka told WND today that most birth records stem from a hospital report. Documentation for children not born in hospitals depends on other records, such as the pregnant mother’s prenatal exams, the statement of an attending midwife and a verification of the birth of a live child.
Other listings include a “foreign” birth or a “delayed” birth.
“We would not be issuing birth certificates of individuals not born in the state of Hawaii,” he said.
So the state said, yet again, that it has the original birth certificate of Hawaii-born Barack Obama. Case closed, right? No. This is the starting point for a story about how “there are cases” — no examples given — of “some documents” reporting inaccurate information. How can Hawaii prove that its records are legitimate? It can’t, because maybe everyone in the government is wrong and the people who reported Barack Obama’s birth 47 years ago lied to them. And while “investigators” suss that out, please spend $17.99 and buy the new movie from WorldNetDaily.
