Nordyke, in a Friday telephone interview with The Daily Republic, said the birthers have consistently discounted her testimony. She is certain they are wrong.
A birther claim that Obama was born in Kenya, she said, is “just a myth. It’s not true at all.”
Nordyke, a longtime friend and Stanford University classmate of Mitchell resident Kathryn Crockett, said the birther issue has been “a broil in Hawaii for the past two years.” Hawaii Gov. Linda Lingle on Thursday signed legislation designed to limit requests for Obama’s birth documents. That move has only outraged birthers.
Hawaii officials have repeatedly confirmed Obama’s citizenship, saying they have seen his birth certificate.
Hawaii law prevents the release of full “long form” birth information to anyone but family members, Nordyke said, “so for the birthers to keep clamoring for it is ridiculous.” She said the leaders of the birther movement are using the false claims to reap financial gain.
Nordyke said Obama’s birth notices appeared in the Aug. 13, 1961, Honolulu Advertiser and Honolulu Star-Bulletin.
She recalls that Obama’s birth notice was published several days before her daughters’ notice, even though Obama’s mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, was admitted to Kapiolani Hospital after Nordyke entered the hospital. Obama was born on a Friday, and the Nordyke twins were born on a Saturday, she said.
Nordyke’s late husband, Dr. Robert Nordyke, was an internal medicine specialist at Honolulu’s Straub Clinic.
“My daughters’ birth certificates were 10637 and 10638, and Obama’s was 10641, so his mother must have come in after I did,” Nordyke said, though she never met Obama’s mother.
Nordkye said she doesn’t know who Obama’s mother’s doctor was, but only five obstetricians were at the hospital at the time, she said. Birthers have complained that the name of the attending physician is being hidden.
For about six years, Nordyke’s daughters attended school with Obama at the Punahou School, a school of about 4,000 geared for the college-bound, which Nordyke called “the best school in Hawaii.”

Freepers are shocked, SHOCKED, that an 82-year-old woman could remember the president’s birth certificate number. Of course, she didn’t have to remember it. All she’d have to do is read it once in the MILLIONS of times it’s been posted to the Internet in the past two years and write it down once, as material to the story of her own daughters’ births. If you had twins born in the same hospital at almost the same time, and later were school mates of a future President of the United States, I think you would make note of it for the sake of your family history, no? Too simple for Birthers, though.
Coached, and coached again.
Her comment that Dunham checked into the hospital after Nordyke — accounting for the birth certificate anomaly is the key.
“My daughters’ birth certificates were 10637 and 10638, and Obama’s was 10641, so his mother must have come in after I did.
1. That’s some memory — remembering 3 birth certificate numbers for 50 years.
2. And pay attention to the name of the number, “BIRTH certificate number,” not “ADMISSION number.”
Why would a person even have such a memory — and while under the influence of the usual birthing drugs that were widely used in 1961.
The rest of the article is so full of false “facts” as to make it useless.
If Obama was on the level, these Obots wouldn’t have to lie so much.
