Nebraska Police Officer, Butterdezillion and Forgerygate

Nebraska Police Officer, Butterdezillion and Forgerygate

Re: “Criminal Report Filed: Nebraska Police Ofc. Finds Obama Forgerygate Evidence Compelling []”

Wait a minute! Methinks I'm missing a couple of links somewhere. WHO is the "Nebraska police officer" who filed the "criminal report" to which this headline refers?

First, I followed the link to Free Republic and read the entire article, including Nellie's redacted affidavit. Is “Nellie” the referenced “police officer”?

Next, I followed the link to Obama Release Your Records and found what appears to be the same article by Nellie.

The text of Nellie's affidavit begins as follows: "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 is NOT ‘identical to’ that in the official record."

When I read the above-quoted statement, I did a double take because I distinctly remember reading and downloading articles detailing and quoting the documents exchanged between the AZ Secretary of State and the HI Dept of Health earlier this year, for example: (May 31, 2012 ) Did I miss a subsequent disclosure from Hawaii—especially one of the magnitude implied by Nellie’s affidavit?

Interestingly enough, among the commenters @ was "Dr. Conspiracy," who confirmed the suspicion that I had already formulated by reading the affidavit: i.e., unless I had missed a very important revelation, Onaka's certification to the AZ SOS did NOT say quite what Nellie clearly claimed that it did. "Dr. Conspiracy" wrote:

It would be the end of the discussion if Onaka had actually said that. Butterdezillion sees things in statements that other people don't. 

There is a difference between saying "it is not identical" and not saying "it is identical." Onaka consistently said that the information on the copies of the White House long form is the same as is contained in his records. Fonts and pixels are not his business; information is. 

Butterdezillion is legend for her reading masses of information into what people do not say, and ignoring the plain intent of what they do say. In short, there's nothing new here. This is just reverse processing of public statements from months back. Sorry if this is a disappointment.

"Dr. Conspiracy" followed up with the following comment, which agrees with and confirms what I had previously read and downloaded:

What Onaka actually said to Bennett was: 

"Additionally, I verify that the information in the copy of the Certificate of Live Birth for Mr. Obama that you attached with your request matches the original record in our files." 

What Onaka actually said to Kobach was: 

"1. The original Certificate of Live Birth for Barack Hussein Obama, II, is on file with the State of Hawaii Department of Health. 
2. The file number for the Certificate of live Birth for Barack Hussein Obama, II, is 151 61 10641. 
3. The information contained in the “Certificate of Live Birth” published at and reviewed by me on the date of this verification, a copy of which is attached with your request, matches the information contained in the original Certificate of Live Birth for Barack Hussein Obama, II on file with the State of Hawaii Department of Health." 

He did not use the words "identical" but he didn't use the words "NOT identical" either.

Thirdly, I followed the link to Butterdezillion, which in turn led me to Now, I'm beginning to make some progress. This hyperlinked PDF begins thusly: "The Hawaii Department of Health in an official verification has indirectly confirmed that Barack Obama’s birth certificate is not legally valid."

Aha! Nellie's affidavit omits a VERY crucial modifier: "indirectly," and this single word makes a tremendous difference in the actual meaning as well as the effectiveness of her affidavit. This omission renders the affidavit effectively misleading. It is obvious that Nellie has done extensive research on the details related to BHO’s BC, and I commend her for that. However, by this omission she has probably doomed her faxes (to all Republican members of the House of Representatives) to an unceremonious interment in File 13.

And, BTW, WHO is that courageous Nebraska police officer...?

This is butterdezillion. What this author read was not the affidavit I filed. What this author read was the letter that I faxed to the Congress members - and all but my own elected officials did put it in the circular file, because I'm not in their state or district. The fax contained a link to my affidavit, in which I clearly spelled out the supporting information and documentation. It would have been better if I had used the word "indirectly"; the difficulty with a one-page limit is that some stuff has to be left out. I tried to get too much into one page and the result was confusion on the part of those who read what I wrote.

The officer was Officer Flood. He has since been told that he not only can't investigate (which we knew would be the case from the outset) but he also cannot forward the case to the NE AG. No reason given. No questions welcome.

I reported the case to the AG's office. They sent it on to the SOS, as if SOS was law enforcement. Par for the course, after the AG's office had earlier lied to me about not being able to take criminal complaints directly from the public (as Officer Flood confirmed was a lie).

IOW, politics trumps the rule of law. As long as you're a politician (or a politician's lawyer) you can get away with crime. And that is precisely why America is in the mess we're in.
