Loretta Fuddy was the only person killed in plane’s belly landing. Reports originally claimed that all 8 were bobbing in the water as one person had swum ashore. All were very glad to see rescue crews.


Loretta Fuddy is dead after a plane crash off of Molokai island in Hawaii yesterday. Out of the 9 people on the plane, the only one that died was Loretta Fuddy, who was the director of Hawaii’s Health Department.

Fuddy received a great deal of attention over her controversial decision to use her position as Health Director (to which she had just been promoted only 3 weeks previous).  She officially certified Barack Obama’s birth certificate when many claimed that he was actually an Indonesian national and not qualified to hold the office of President of the United States.

The controversy dragged on for months and Fuddy tried to quash the uproar by using her position to officially certify Barack Obama’s birth certificate and make an exception for Obama in consideration that he already held the office of President of the United States.

Then Gov. Linda Lindle of HI was another person claiming to have personally viewed Barack Obama’s original birth certificate “with her own eyes”.

A subpeona was issued to compel her to produce the original and the debacle has been up in the air ever since. Hours before Fuddy died in the plane crash, another forged birth certificate was published online that she had also officially certified.

Once that second case with a forged document was published online, Orly Taitz immediately demanded to see it because this 2nd case affected Fuddy’s credibility directly.

Once news spread that Fuddy had died in the plane crash, the subpeona’s and the demand for discovery were immediately resubmitted to the next in line, Deputy Keith Yamamoto whom for all intents and purposes was now the Hawaii’s Director of the Health Department. He like all the others, survived the plane’s belly landing.

The controversy grew in part out of the photograph that the White House posted on its website. Under examination, the multi-layered document presented as an original created more questions than it answered because multi-layered adobe documents could not have been legitimate since Adobe did not exist in 1961. Adobe wasn’t established until 30 years later in the early 1990’s.

A pilot and eight passengers were on board the Makani Kai Air plane, which was scheduled to take off at 3:15 p.m. and fly to Honolulu. It went down about a half mile northwest of Kalaupapa peninsula, Maui Fire Department spokesman Lee Mainaga said in an emailed statement.Makai Kai Air President Richard Schuman told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser (http://bit.ly/1aXcHhd) that the plane was a Cessna Grand Caravan.

The director of the state Department of Health, Loretta Fuddy, and the department’s deputy director, Keith Yamamoto, were booked on the flight, department spokeswoman Janice Okubo said.Then Coast Guard Petty Officer Melissa McKenzie said a Coast Guard helicopter rescued 3 passengers out of the water and Maui fire crews picked up five people (one had swum ashore).Emergency swim crews and helicopters were at the scene within 30 minutes of the belly land.An hour after the flight’s water landing, a Maui County official told the press that…  One (1) person swam ashore, a helicopter brought three (3) people to Honolulu for medical treatment, [that equals 4 people] while a Coast Guard plane took five (5) [that comes to 9 people] to Maui.The water landing was handled so well and the crash was of such minor consequence that 2 of the passengers actually refused medical treatment.That’s a total of 9 people. At no time did any official in any capacity state that Loretta Fuddy or anyone else had died – on the contrary.

Coast Guard rescue swimmer Mark Peer says he swam up to Fuddy & she didn’t have a pulse

Rescue swimmer by the name of Mark Peer who had never been mentioned before and whose name never appeared in any reports and he states that when he got to Loretta Fuddy, she was unresponsive and he couldn’t find a pulse. “It was not a good feeling,” he said.

However, USA Today published an AP report that said… In the final moments of her life, Fuddy clung to the hand of her deputy, Keith Yamamoto, while floating in the water.

Fuddy, who played a role in making President Barack Obama’s birth certificate public in 2011, held hands with Yamamoto as he tried to help her relax, said the Rev. Patrick Killilea, who consoled Yamamoto after the ordeal.

Where previously, ABC News reported that Yamamoto and Fuddy were holding hands and she was alive (USA Today), now the rescue swimmer says (in the Hawaii News Now) that she had drifted 200 yards out and was all alone. Yet Yamamoto had to get consoled over his ordeal?

Dr. Keith Yamamota obstructed the delivery of a

So which was it? Was Yamamota holding her hand or wasn’t he?

Fuddy and Yamamoto were at Kalaupapa for an annual visit, Okubo said. Hawaii once exiled people with leprosy, or Hansen’s disease to Kalaupapa from 1866 through 1969. The remote peninsula on the north side of Molokai island is still a leprosy settlement run by the state Health Department, though only a few former leprosy patients continue to live there.


For the last six years, Mr. Yamamoto has served as the Alcohol and Drug Abuse Administrator in the Department of Health’s Alcohol and Drug Abuse Division.  In this position he has provided overall leadership and guidance regarding the statewide operation of prevention, intervention and treatment services.


Mr. Yamamoto previously served as the Children and Youth Program Development Officer in the Office of Youth Services-Program Development Office; he has also worked in the State Department of Labor and Industrial Relations as a Program Coordinator for the Kaimuki School-to-Work Transition Center and a Career Counselor for the McKinely School-to-Work Transition Center.


Mr. Yamamoto holds a State of Hawai’i Certification as a Substance Abuse Program Administrator.  He earned a Master’s degree in Public Administration from the University of Hawai’i and a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Northern Colorado.  Mr. Yamamoto graduated from Pearl City High School.

Kalaupapa is also home to a national park. Hours before the plane went down, Johanna Ah’Nee-Randolf’s documents were also found to be forgeries and had been certified as genuine by Loretta Fuddy herself as she did in Barack Obama’s case.

Loretta Fuddy was the only passenger to die in the cessna accident.

And in a really well put together report published by the Canada Free Press, their account reads as follows… 

Consider this early report with public statements made by the Hawaii Department of Health. This agency maintained — for nearly four hours after the crash, that Ms. Fuddy and deputy director Keith Yamamoto, also a passenger on the plane, were alive.

The significance of this assertion will become evident as the various accounts are considered with what was known at the time of the accident or shortly thereafter.

As already referenced but now stated in more detail, initial news reports announced that “three passengers were pulled from the water by the two Coast Guard helicopters, and Maui fire crews picked up others. One crash survivor swam ashore.”

Despite these eyewitness and official accounts of Ms. Fuddy not making it out of the interior of the downed plane, ABC News reported several hours later the following account:

“In the final moments of her life, Hawaii Health Director Loretta Fuddy clung to the hand of her deputy after a small plane taking them back to Honolulu crashed in the ocean off the island of Molokai.“  In the water, Fuddy held hands with deputy director Keith Yamamoto as he tried to help her relax, said the Rev. Patrick Killilea, who consoled Yamamoto after the ordeal.”

“He recounted how he helped Loretta into her life jacket and he held her hand for some time,” the priest said. “They were all floating together and she let go and there was no response from her.”

The rescuer states Fuddy displayed no wounds or trauma, the report filed later states she had a “fatal injury”. Her deputy however says she and he held hands in the water and the rescuers originally claimed that all eight survivors were bobbing in the water. At no time do they say that one of them was dead. They reported that all eight had survived and they were told by the survivors that they were one “short” because one of the them had swum ashore.

Later a rescuer claims Fuddy’s body was alone 200 yards away. What happened to “one swam to shore, they helped her on with her life support vest, they all got out and they were all seen alive and Fuddy and her deputy were holding hands?” That’s the last thing the one that swam ashore saw when he looked at them before he decided to swim ashore. He says “she was alive – they were all alive”.


Canada Free Press mentioning witnesses stated that Keith Yamamoto was already dressed in blue swim trunks and a tee shirt.

Dear Mr. Yamamoto,

First, please allow me to express my deepest condolences upon untimely passing of your superior, Director of Health Loretta Fuddy, during yesterday’s airplane forced water landing. It must have been even more traumatic as reportedly Ms. Fuddy passed away holding your hand.

It was surely a traumatic experience and a tragedy and our thoughts and prayers are with you. Due to such difficult circumstances I am simply asking a question and not filing a formal request for information.

As you know, Ms. Fuddy was the person who released Mr. Obama’s alleged true and correct copy of his allegedly genuine birth certificate which allegedly exists and allegedly was in safe keeping in the vault of the Department of Health in Hawaii since August of 1961.

At the time of release Ms. Fuddy wrote a letter to Mr. Obama stating that the Department of Health does not release Long Form birth certificates and she is making a special exception for Mr. Obama as a U.S. President.

The letter stated: “Dear President Obama: I have reviewed your request for two certified copies of your original birth certificate of Live Birth. As the Director of Health for the State of Hawaii, I have the legal authority to approve the process by which copies of such records are made.

Through that authority, in recognition of your status as President of the United States, I am making an exception to current department policy which is to issue a computer -generated certified copy”. However, attached is a long form birth certificate for another individual,  resident X, which was released on March 15, 2011, approximately one month before Obama obtained his alleged birth certificate.

My question is, what is the explanation, why Ms. Fuddy and/or you, and/or any other employees of the Health Department did not disclose to American citizens that in fact other long form birth certificates are being released to other individuals?

This is of particular interest as prior Director of Health, Dr. Neal Palafox, resigned in February of 2011 and Ms. Fuddy started her tenure only in March of 2011. She released Obama’s alleged birth certificate only one month after being appointed as Director of Health, so clearly she could not forget the fact that she released other long form birth certificates during this one month that she was in office.

This is a matter of public concern and I would  greatly appreciate your response in the earliest convenience.

Respectfully, Dr. Taitz, ESQ Attachment

Ms. Fuddy was reported to die an untimely death after the water landing of the Turbo Cessna Caravan plane which was to transport her and her deputy, Keith Yamamoto, to Oahu. There are conflicting reports in regards to her death, which only add to the controversy. According to the report by the Fire Rescue her body was found in the fuselage of the plane. According to survivors, C. Philip Holstein and her deputy, Keith Yamamoto, Ms. Fuddy got out of the plane with all the other passengers and was alive and wearing her life vest when she suddenly let go of the hand of Mr.

Yamamoto and suddenly died. Further, some reports place the total number of passenger at 8 and a total number of individuals on the plane at 9, however reports of the Coast Guard rescue team state that they found 9 individuals floating in the water, which does not include the Mr. Holstein an the pilot, Mr. Kawasaki, who reportedly swam to shore, as such the total number of individuals on that flight was 11 and not 9 as reported, and it is not clear, whether the person who passed away and was examined by the Coroner’s office at Molokai, was indeed Ms. Fuddy.

Considering her verification of the forged ID for Mr. Obama, Ms. Fuddy could have been a target and her death could have been the result of some foul play. As such it is in the public interest to release the autopsy results and coroner’s report disclosing the cause of death.

Based on all of the above and per Unified Information Practices Act 92F I am requesting herein aforementioned Coroner’s/ Medical Examiner’s report and results of the autopsy of deceased Loretta Deliana Fuddy, date of death 12.11.2013, date of autopsy 12.12.2013-12.13.2013.
