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.

Wouldn’t there be some other way, if a journalists were so inclined, to find out information? Was Barry O seen by a pediatrician, are there records (hospital, flight,housing,school,license, whatever) that his mom was in Hawaii at the time of his birth? You would think that there would be some paper trail on Momma Barry re: if she were in the state of Hawaii on Aug. 4th 19XX
And who are you?
Maybe i could also love you if i knew
It is embarrassing to watch FR do this.
It doesn't matter where Obama was born. If his mother was a US citizen, then he is.
Even if he was born in Cuba or North Korea.
Carry on with the insanity. I sure can't stop it.
But it's stupid, it makes FR look stupid, and if that's fine with everyone, keep it up.
Obama obviously had to submit some kind of proof of citizenship or legal alien status to be admitted to the Illinois State Bar. The question is whether it was a birth certificate?
If Obama knew this was a fake, he should have produced the real one to quell these rumors. Frankly I think this might just be a Dan Rather moment. At this point he is going to have to prove he is eligible and he's going to have to do it before the convention. At this point, I have my doubts. Everything about this man is phony.

The real amazing thing of this story is not that it’s a fake ..... it’s that a liberal actually ‘fessed up to committing a crime. That’s extraordinary!
Maybe they are regarding this as a “whitey” video. Why can’t the original BC be viewed?
I never saw any that did not have at least a hint of a seal.
This is really an amazing turn of events.
Not the forgery, mind you, but the admission of it.
I suspicion it's not the place of birth he doesn't want seen...
What was his name at birth? was it Barry Dunham -
Why is the race of his mother listed as "Caucasian" but of his father "African"?
"African" is not a race. People of all colors and races are born in Africa.
What is it that the obamination doesn't want us to see?
For all of those docs and more- go to Polarik’s blog on Townhall:
No, it is stupid to post a forgery and claim its real. THAT IS WHAT IS STUPID
Well, there were many of us digging hard. SOmeone was going to have to fess up sooner or later.
Hillary will be all over this like butter on toast.
Nonetheless, this could be some form of misinformation campaign to discredit the opposition.
I’d proceed with caution.
If Hillary bites, then there’s something there. How can we tell if she gets interested? She’d eventually have to say something public, but humbly, discreetly.
Is Israel Insider an accurate source? I’ve never heard of them.
Yeah? And your point is???
For once, I see the shadow of a Clinton and am *almost* pleased about it.
What a set-up. Obama may be down for the count with this.
Slogans you can dangle a preposition from
