Skip to comments.Blogger admits Hawaii birth certificate forgery, subverting Obama claims (Uh-oh)
Posted on 07/03/2008 4:35:19 PM PDT by SE Mom
Jay McKinnon, a self-described Department of Homeland Security-trained document specialist, has implicated himself in the production of fraudulent Hawaii birth certificate images similar to the one endorsed as genuine by the Barack Obama campaign, and appearing on the same blog entry where the supposedly authentic document appears.
The evidence of forgery and manipulation of images of official documents, triggered by Israel Insider's revelation of the collection of Hawaii birth certificate images on the Photobucket site and the detective work of independent investigative journalists and imaging professionals in the three weeks since the publication of the images, implicate the Daily Kos, an extreme left blog site, and the Obama campaign, in misleading the public with official-looking but manipulated document images of doubtful provenance.
The perceived unreliability of the image has provoked petitions and widespread demands for Obama to submit for objective inspection the paper versions of the "birth certificate" he claimed in his book Dreams from My Father was in his possession, as well as the paper version of the Certificate of Live Birth for which the image on the Daily Kos and the Obama "Fight the Smears" website was supposedly generated.
Without a valid birth certificate, Obama cannot prove he fulfills the "natural born citizen" requirement of the Constitution, throwing into doubt his eligibility to run for President.
McKinnon, who says he is 25-30 years old, operates a website called OpenDNA.com and uses the OpenDNA screen name on various web sites and blogs, including his comments and diary on The Daily Kos. In recent years he has divided his time between Long Beach, California and Vancouver, British Columbia. He is a Democratic political activist, frequent contributor to the left wing Daily Kos blog, and a fervent Barack Obama supporter.

Fake, but accurate.
If he is guilty of FRAUD, then I want to know why he is pushing falsified documents as genuine.
Obama is a racist, thief and liar.
So false, it could have been real.
It’s not the facts that are important, it’s the spirit in which the forgery was done that is important.
They wanted it to be true, so it is true. We need to understand this and not be so negative!
We always knew he was un-American anyway.
If he he isn’t a legal citizen, I say we elect Obama. The man has stones you’d have to cart in a wheel barrow.
Yep- and then there’s this:
Big old Bookmark.
If it’s proven that that certificate really is a fake - and if Obama’s real birth certificate shows that he was not born a U.S. citizen - do you know what the fallout could be? Hillary Clinton would probably get the Democratic nomination after all.
Hope he lets us know how the view is from under the bus
So what? The ends justifies the means (said in best liberal whine)
Oh my goodness...from the last line of the article:
In the summer of August 2006, blogging on the Daily Kos, opendna aka Jay McKinnon, showing off his DHS-derived knowledge, discusses discusses under the heading of “The Perfect ID Card” the ease of forging US documents, birth certificates in particular:
“Most Americans have worse ID than illegal immigrants. So, you have a letter from a notary that says you told him you’re a citizen. Is that supposed to mean something? I’m certain he would sign one saying I told him I’m a carrot. Birth certificates, are you serious? Take a look at yours. Chances are I could counterfeit it at Kinkos.”
Me thinks by now, the original can not be found...
I fear this is some kind of set-up.
That, too, must be factored in and planned for.
Doesn't exactly inspire confidence in DHS training, since his efforts did not withstand scrutiny for very long.
Doesn't exactly inspire confidence in DHS itself, since they've apparently trained a con artist.
Good thing he was badly trained then, lol.
