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.

Here is the 1952 act language

Not perfect. I needed to work in the word “honeymoon”...
“had her baby at some multi-leg turbo-prop waypoint between Kenya and Vancouver”
No problem: the law can handle this (your tax dollars at work!):
“a. Airspace above the land territory and internal waters is held to be part of the United States (Art. 1(1), 1958 Geneva Convention on the Territorial Sea and the Contiguous
Zone, 15 U.S.T. 1606, TIAS 5639). Gordon and Rosenfeld, in Immigration Law and Procedure, Volume 3, Nationality (New York: Matthew Bender, 1986), commenting on the
applicability of the 14th Amendment to vessels and planes, states:
..The rules applicable to vessels obviously apply equally to airplanes.
Thus a child born on a plane in the United States, or flying over its territory, would acquire United States citizenship at birth.
b. Cases of persons born on planes in airspace outside the U.S. coastal borders but within the U.S. territorial sea should be submitted to the Department (CA/OCS) for
I am pretty sure that is the language as modified in 1986.
no, not at all, I think yer dead wrong on this one, M’Lady... :)
The nurses and doctor who examined Obama four days after his birth would note the condition of his umbilical cord - a sure-fire way to determine the age of a newborn.
Wet: two days or less. Dry but firmly attached: three to seven days. Blackened, shriveled, dried hard, about to fall off: seven to ten days.
Maybe. I’m going by a couple of pictures. I see Malik’s face in that boy. And if I was packing all my belongings and moving to another country, while in my first trimester, I would need help. I can see Obama Sr. sending for his son to help his new wife, pregnant with his child, pack and move to Kenya.
So maybe you agree with my analysis above. Be nice to know somebody does.
I guess describing Obama as thin in the Christmas tree picture is not very accurate--he has a pot but his arms and body are narrow. And his mouth and nose are different.
And Ann is heavy.
If the story is that the boy in the Airport picture is Obama, that picture and the picture described by Obama as the "wedding picture" have to have been taken within a week or two of the Christmas Tree family picture. Same people within a few days of each other. They just are not.
The boy in the Airport picture just isn't Obama. Looks a lot like him in another picture (maybe that picture is this boy also) but it isn't Obama.
Throwing into doubt also his Senate seat!
Jim, how about sharing that sentiment with your Admin Moderators, one of which told us to quit posting that Hussein Bin Obama isn't a citizen.
BHO Sr left him in 1962, not 1963, per his own CORRECTED website. So BHO is unable as an adult man, paid to write about his upbringing to get the dates correct.
What does that say? That he's incompetent and unwillingly to fact check. Don't feel sorry for this guy at all. Many, many people have had a difficult childhood. Doesn't make them Presidential material. If anything, it continues to show his incompetence and emotional immaturity regarding his past. How can someone be able to address the issues facing this country when they are still hung up on their dysfunctional family issues? The guy refuses to set the record straight about his upbringing, and he's either scared to find out, or unwillingly.
OHB appears to lack emotional intelligence. A Critical factor in the position of President. Maybe he's too young, look at who his Father figure has been for the past 20 years - Rev Wright. Yikes. Think about your own lives, remember back to 1988, where you were. BHO has been under that teaching for 20 years.
Emotional intelligence (EI) is one of the most important ideas to hit the business world in recent years. It is based on the notion that the ability of managers to understand their own emotions, and those of the people they work with, is the key to better business performance.
Obama’s defenders try to give the impression that he's owed this win. But Obama and his supporters come across as feeling sorry for themselves. The antithesis of conservatism.
I don’t think the Christmas Tree and Airport picture is the same timeline. Obama Jr. is an ectomorph, pot belly doesn’t matter. Malik is an endormorph.
Obama Sr, although not a good picture is definitely OLDER in the Christmas Tree Picture.
Ann, looks like she may be pregnant again? Definitely heavier than the airport photo.
The boy in the airport, looks like Malik’s eyes and mouth. I can see Obama Sr. sending for Malik to help with the move. I don’t think it is crazy considering he would have one of his son’s help with a move.
endormorph = endomorph
Quit playin’ already. Those are pics of obama. Next
Why? Is it unusual for a son to be at an airport with his father?
Obama looks like this in the christmas tree pic.
Keep going - we got your back, sis.
Or he's lying.
I first linked that photo in the airport of BO, Sr. and whom I thought was BO, Jr. but now I’m wondering too.
Not that we can necessarily rely entirely on anything BO,Jr. wrote in his book but this is interesting:
We stand together in front of the Christmas tree and pose for pictures, the only ones I have of us together,
He says the Christmas tree pics are the only ones they have together.
We stand together in front of the Christmas tree and pose for pictures
I think we are getting far far away from the issues - why was the number of the FILED BY REGISTRAR certificate blocked out, (if a number ever existed) AND is the document presented on the obama website sufficient PROOF of the candidates bona-fide ability to stand for POTUS?
If the answer is NO to these questions, IMO the documentation, such as it is, REQUIRES TO BE CHALLENGED.
