President Obama’s Birth Certificate PDF has “Layers”
Video Wall ^ | 4/27/11 | video wall

Posted on 04/27/2011 11:25:17 AM PDT by Mr. K

When viewing the PDF in Adobe the text can be removed and added in Layers

You can compress all layers down to one, but someone clearly did not do that last step to make a good forgery

LOL that was the one that he is born in Mombasa Kenya.Probably the real one.

I think we ought to start asking REAL LOUD for the one with the footprints. That one can be (more or less) verified and should come complete with doctor and all sorts of interesting and complete information.

The security paper should be a separate bitmap image that the text is layered over. When you move the text the security paper should not be damaged with white left-over type.

“”I find it interesting, that the Nordyke twins, born after obama, in the same hospital, filed after obama, have sequential document numbers, before obama.””

I know people who have been working on clearing that question up for the past two years.

The fact it can be deconstructed with photoshop should tell you something...

Yes, it tells you that the released PDF is a digitally created and manipulated document.

In 1961, Stanley Ann Dunham did not sign a piece of paper with a green 21st Century digital background on it.

That's a cold, hard fact.

I am not saying whether the information on this is genuine or not. What I am saying is that this is obviously a computer generated image that has been manipulated to at least layer the alleged original writing over the 21st Century digital background ..... colored green, no less.

Once you manipulate a digital image, it's manipulated and nobody can claim to know what else may have been manipulated .... or not manipulated.

I have been involved in genealogy reserch for years and I have a friend in Spain that works in the Spanish church and state archives. When he finds a birth documentation of one of my ancestors, he sends the documentation to me.

You know how he does that?

Simple. He takes his digital camera, takes a digital photo of the original 19th Century or 18th Century or 17th Century document and then he e-mails the digital photo to me.

The digital images get to me showing paper tears, water stains, ink smudges, etc.,etc.

Nowhere in the process is Photoshop involved.

Do you know how many of those digital photos of the original documents showed 18th Century alleged writing on a 21st Century digital background?

None of them. Zero. Nada. Zip. Zilch.

The document released by the White House is a digitally manipulated image and not a digital photo of an original document. Figuring that out is not Rocket Science.

Just release a true, unmanipulated image of the original document: That is all Obama has to do.

The digital photo above, water stains and all, sent to me by my friend in Spain, is of a genuine 1761 birth documentation dated 15 December 1761:

"En el quince dia del mes de Diciembre de mil seteciento sesenta y uno ....."

If I can easily provide a true digital image of a genuine birth documentation, without resorting to Photoshop, of a Spaniard that was born in 1761, why on Earth does the President of the United States refuse to release a similar image of his own birth documentation for 1961?

There are two very simple questions:

1.) Why won't President Obama simply end this circus by releasing an unmanipulated image of the original long-form document?

2.) "What is President Obama hiding and why is he hiding it?"

I did. It’s definitely got layers, which isn’t what happens when someone uploads a single document. I’ll get my video on YouTube as soon as it’s done uploading, but it’s a big file size, so it’ll be a while still. Will post it as a separate title here on FreeRepublic.

I’m not thinking at all. I’m just checking updates as I run in and out of my office and wishing I had some popcorn.

It doesn’t matter if he gave out one filled out with a purple Crayon. 40% will believe anything they are told. 20%, the magic undecided, think the whole topic is loony. Too many people would lose their power, position or pride if he was exposed. It won’t happen. They will murder people first. As many as it takes. Luckily for Trump every serious political operative sees him for what he is, a sideshow attraction.

The main thing this shows is that Obama is officially disqualified from being president, since it is proof that his father was not an American citizen, so he is officially not a natural born citizen of the USA, but rather of the British Empire.

I am glad we finally put that to rest.

The father’s race is listed as African, which I didn’t know is a race. Egyptians are from Africa and are therefore African. Are we saying that they are the same race?

Sitting Bull and I are both North Americans. Are we of the same race?

I really don’t understand this “African” race designation.

You do realize the top comment on the video is:

"It's called OCR (optical character recognition). Acrobat and many scanners do this by default. It detects letters and words on the page and allows you to add selectable text to the document without having to type it in manually.

"Notice how when you hide a layer, it's white behind it? If it was truly forged, you wouldn't see any of the background missing. It's white because it doesn't know what's behind the text BECAUSE THE TEXT WAS THERE WHEN IT WAS SCANNED."

OCR and compression software scan for searchable text, but also for high resolution text with or without hard edges, low resolution backgrounds, and then another for soft edges and colors. There can then be countless other combinations of layers on scanned images depending on the OCR settings of the software.

It's obvious that the difference in the rough and soft edges on the text got caught up in different layers. Look at the green background layer. It's not a static green pattern but has white lines carved out where the text should be. It's not like a Photoshop layer.

It's so obvious that this is the case, but I can see that the snowball is already rolling down the hill.

Enough is enough people. The guy was born in Hawaii.

And my next questions would be “Who the hell should care about an electronic copy and why?” The physical document itself should be the only thing considered.

The WH released a physical copy to the WH Press Corp. They got to touch it, feel it, photograph it, and make copies for themselves and their news organizations.

So now, news organizations other than the biased FactCheck.org have seen, touched, felt, photographed, and photocopied it.

 I just checked the official web site for Kapiolani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital and according to the information there, the name of the hospital at the time of his birth should have been Kauikeolani Children’s Hospital. According to the web site the name didn’t change to Kapiolani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital until Kauikeolani Children’s Hospital merged with Kapi‘olani Maternity Home in 1978. So how could his official long form birth certificate that was generated in 1961 have the name of the hospital that wasn’t created until 1978?”
 
[link to www.whitehouse.gov]
 
From WIKI
 
The facility was originally founded by Queen Kapiʻolani as the Kapiʻolani Maternity Home in 1890 for which she held bazaars and luaus to raise $8,000 needed to start the Home. Kauikeolani Children’s Hospital opened in 1909 named for Emma Kauikeolani Napoleon Mahelona (1862–1931), the wife of Albert Spencer Wilcox (1844–1919).[1] In 1978, it merged with Kapiʻolani Maternity Home to become Kapiʻolani Medical Center for Women and Children.

And once again I ask the simple question: Where are the darn creases??? Hawaii only mails out the BC’s and they are folded twice. This one has no sign of creasing.

I’m actually really frustrated with this crap. I was hoping that the issue would die here.

The comment on the video suggested that someone doctored the BC to make it more “readable”. Why would they do this when they know that *ANY* signs of tampering would only fuel the fire??

This is so annoying.

Yes. The entire WH Press Corp got to see, touch, feel, photograph, and photocopy a certified copy.

Obama asked for TWO certified copies so he’d have one for his records and one to passed around the WH Briefing Room.

The last digit in the COLB Number is clearly digital. No typewriter used on that character.

I don't think that number was typed. (which doesn't clear up why the final '1' doesn't have any of the imperfections of the others) But if you look at the ones within the body of the form, they are all lower case Ls. (The first typewriter I used didn't have a '1' so this isn't too strange to me.)

For what it’s worth, the capital “O” in both instances of the word “Oahu” is slightly elevated. Whereas the capital “O” in both instances of “OBAMA” is not elevated. The rest of the letters are not of the same case in both words, but still, it is interesting.

I only looked at this because once I reviewed the document, there was nothing there that would cause Obama to spend millions of dollars and political capital to keep it secret.

If this is the real deal, he could have released it during the primaries as it would not affect his chances except positively. Everyone already knew his current middle name during the primaries.

Furthermore, when working in Illustrator, and specifically commercial print, there is a difference in the appearance of 100K black (CYMK) and "Rich Black."

It's quite possible that if the original was scanned and modified, the color settings in the program/computer they were using made the modified text appear on their screen as the same color when in actuality it was a lighter/darker shade and would appear as such on other machines.

It’s probably because the OCR isn’t scanning the signatures as text. They’re being scanned as a separate image layer on top of the background, while the OCR is picking up most of the rest of the text as searchable.

In post 47 scroll over to the right to the green one you can see markings that say “add” and markings like this / on the side. It sure looks like it was being set up and marked on how to forge it. (Stanley) and African was just dumb. I mean really, it looks like a Daily Kaos blogger did this one as well.

The explanation is that a scan of the original, which had a plain background, was then printed on a sheet of green security paper. The curvature is due to the scan having been taken from a bound book.
