Does anybody in USA have the legal authority to straighten out the Obama Birthplace Mystery?

Question by dolphin314etc: Does anybody in USA have the legal authority to straighten out the Obama Birthplace Mystery?
After 25 years as a Federal lawyer, I did investigate this issue fairly throroughly in June of 2008. What my investigation revealed was that yes there was a “long form” birth certificate for Obama (not just a certificate of live birth, which can be gotten by telling some very easy lies that are taken as true without being checked out — the mother files an affidavit, the state grants a certificate of live birth, any time within a year of the alleged birth, this is to take care of babies born at home and not in hospitals)

My findings in June of 2008 were that then serving high ranking officials of the State of Hawaii had said on the record that they had personally seen the long form birth certificate for Obama (showing the hospital of his birth, the Doctor who was present, and/or the medical personnel who were present).

The Hawaii officials said they were keeping the long form birth certificate in a safe.

They went on the say that the Obama family has a right to privacy and that there is no reason to publish any citizen’s long form birth certificate or display it publicly.

On that basis, I closed the file.

My theory is that the Hawaii officials know better than to tell lies about a matter like that. They know about Federal penitentiaries. They know the rules on false official statements. They are much too smart and too law abiding to come out and tell a boldface lie about a document they say they’ve seen and have in their safe. It’s like lying about having four aces, when you know you’re going to lay your hand down if somebody “calls” your bet. No poker player would do that. I don’t think any bureaucrat would either. If they say they’ve got the document, they’ve got it.

So my question is really very precise and specific. Is there any human being or institution in the USA that has the legal power and the legal right to issue as subpoena duces tecum for the long form Obama birth certificate that the Hawaii officials say they have in a safe?

Two possible answers: 1) no, there is no such authority or

2) yes there is such an authority.

Then you could tell me who you think the authority is. Here are some candidates:

1. The U.S. Electoral College at the time of the 2008 election.

2. The Secretaries of State of the 50 states (who certify elections)

3. The U.S. Secretary of State (who takes the Electoral College results and certifies them)

4. The 2008 then sitting Vice President, who collects and counts the Electoral College votes from the various states (this is done in Washington DC, in the Senate, but the electors do not travel to Washington DC to prsent their votes in person).

5. The U.S. Attorney General (who has broad powers to see that the law is faithfully executed)

6. The Government Affairs Committee Chairman in the House (who has broad powers to see that the law is faithfully and non-fraudulently executed.

This is just some of the possibilities, there may be others, if anyone at all has the legal power and right to order the document taken out of the safe and presented for examination.

I realize the Privacy Act is important. I realize that Hawaii bureaucrats have a right to decline to do anything that may get them sued under the Privacy Act. But does the Privacy Act trump all other laws in the United States, and all other considerations in this case?

This is a mystery that is costly to leave unsolved. The information on file right now — the allegations of the Hawaii bureaucrats indicates that the document is right there in their safe and only the Privacy Act prevents it being shown. Can anybody say “No my authority is greater than the Privacy Act, I want the document so it can be examined, here’s your immunity agreements, you are in the clear, not sueable, not liable, just hand over the document, or show us where the safe is where it’s located.”

Either somebody can or nobody can.

If somebody can, maybe they should. It seems ridiculous to let this mystery fester. It’s creating friction, turmoil, and costs.

By the way, I have every confidence and no reason to doubt that the Hawaii officials are telling the truth — they have seen the document — it is in the safe. So this is a no-lose proposition — it’s just a matter of bending the Privacy Act a bit, but extraordinary circumstances make that appropriate in this case. No substantive harm will be done. And a lot of good will be done if this loose end can finally be laid to rest. Put the thing in a glass case in the FBI building and let a dozen teams of certified forensic document analysts look it over. Let some investigators visit the hospital and talk to people there. No big deal.
I’m not getting an answer to the very precise question I asked. Let’s try again:

1) Pretend for the sake of argument that a long form birth certificate does exist, Hawaii officials have seen it (they say), and they are keeping it in a safe.

Then

2) Is there any person or institution in the USA that has the right and the power to issue a subpoena duces tecum for that document?

It’s a “yes” or “no” question. It does not call for abusive comments directed at me. It doesn’t call for a review of INS law. It doesn’t call for rambling hate-filled posts about who is a conservative and who is not, or about whether the question should or should not be asked, or whether Obama is a good guy or not.

I just want to know if the Hawaii birth story can be supported by any evidence more reliable than the short form certificate of live birth. It’s “yes” or “no”, and then if you could say who the authority is, that would be very helpful. Hint: DOJ might be the one if FEC laws are at stake.

only a total “TOOL” still believes there is ANY kind of a controversy. Embrace reality.

Federal District Court Judges are Very Powerful

Federal District Court Judges are Very Powerful

Drug trafficking, child pornography, and terrorism charges are the three most harshly punished crimes in the federal criminal system. If you’ve been accused of any of these crimes, you should consult with a Raleigh federal lawyer, Raleigh federal criminal lawyer, Raleigh lawyer, or North Carolina criminal lawyer as soon as possible. You can call (919) 352-9411 for a free consultation.

The federal system has a couple of features that make it necessary to hire an aggressive, professional, and experienced criminal lawyer. First, federal judges are not constrained by the plea bargains that have been worked out between the defense and the United States Attorney.

So, for instance, if a Raleigh criminal defendant and the United States Attorney (AUSA) for the Eastern District of North Carolina work out an agreement as to a specific sentence, a federal district judge is not obligated to follow that agreement. Consequently, all federal plea agreements are open-ended as to punishment within the federal sentencing system.

A skilled Raleigh defense attorney is able to negotiate certain statements of fact in the plea agreement, as to weights of drugs found, number of images of child pornography identified, or the nature of the crime specific elements associated with a terrorism charge. Those facts will constrain a federal district court judge. And, so, a Raleigh federal lawyer can limit your exposure through a carefully negotiated plea agreement.

It’s sometimes said by Raleigh defense lawyers that the only thing they fear more than God is a federal district judge. That’s because a federal district judge has such power to accept or reject, or sentence within some very harsh federal penalties. Call a Raleigh lawyer or North Carolina criminal lawyer as soon as possible. You can call (919) 352-9411 for a free consultation.

Here’s the thing you should keep in mind. If you’ve been accused of a crime by the federal government, you should hire an attorney who not only can try the case if it can be tried successfully before a jury, but can negotiate the best possible sentence, if trying the case would result in a worse outcome.
