Blogger admits Hawaii birth certificate forgery, subverting Obama claims (Uh-oh)
Israel Insider ^ | 3 July 2008 | Reuven Koret

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.

excerpt:

In September 1960, Castro led a delegation to New York City to address the United Nations General Assembly. He and his entourage caused an immediate sensation by deciding to stay at the Theresa Hotel in Harlem. While there, Castro met with a number of African-American leaders, including Malcolm X from the Nation of Islam and the poet Langston Hughes. On September 26, Castro delivered a blistering attack on what he termed American “aggression” and “imperialism.” For over four hours, Castro lambasted U.S. policy toward Cuba and other nations in Latin America, Asia, and Africa. The United States, he declared, had “decreed the destruction” of his revolutionary government...

This may be a good time to remind ourselves of the statement apparently made by the obama lawyers:

“...Obama’s lawyers in these motions, argued that revealing the information (birth certificate, citizenship in other countries, etc.) would “cause a defined and serious injury” to Obama and/or the DNC. They say revealing these documents raises a “legitimate privacy concern” and the above mentioned risk that “particularly serious embarrassment will result from turning over the requested documentation.” The source of that embarrassment was not specified...

http://israelinsider.ning.com/profiles/blogs/2018399:BlogPost:10858

I’m asking - could that embarrassment be connected to paternity issues?

Also, why would it “cause a defined and serious injury “ to Obama and/or the DNC?

The DNC??? What would that matter? Obama was a rogue, unvetted candidate that basically campaigned outside of the DNC. Howard Dean didn’t even vet him, Pelosi signed the form.

Can she do that legally????

The embarrassment is probably connected to paternity and BC issue problem.

I have been tracking the movements of several persons during the time Stanley Ann got pregnant. Malcolm was in Chicago in Sept 1960. (I realize that is too early for conception, but Chicago was a sort of base. There may have been as of yet undocumented visits.)

This has a somewhat detailed chronology for Malcolm X

Madelyn Dunham’s brother has lived in Chicago and recently retired from the University of Chicago (Assistant Director-Library)

Uncle Charlie proud of Obama
‘Attention of flub astonishing’

CHICAGO, July 24, (AP): Charles T. Payne had his first close brush with his¬tory at the end of World War II, when his infantry division liberated Ohrdruf, a subcamp of the Nazis’ Buchenwald concentration camp in eastern Germany.
Now 83, Payne is experiencing a sec¬ond brush as the great-uncle of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.
Payne spoke to The Associated Press on Tuesday as Obama, on the other side of the world, prepared to visit the Yad Vashem national Holocaust memorial in Jerusalem.
In May, Obama mentioned “Uncle Charlie” at a meeting with veterans but mistakenly said Payne had helped liber¬ate Auschwitz, when he should have said Buchenwald. Bloggers seized on the error and the Republican Party demanded an explanation.
Obama’s campaign corrected the mistake the next day. Soviet forces lib-erated Auschwitz as they marched across Poland in January 1945.
Payne, with an Obama button pinned to his shirt, told the AP he was “truly astonished” by the attention
paid to Obama’s flub. The brother of Obama’s maternal grandmother, Payne figures Obama heard the story wrong from his grandparents, “whose grasp of geography wasn’t always the firmest.” He said at the time he asked friends if he should “try to set the record straight,” but that they advised him to ignore it.
Payne said he didn’t want to say any-thing to embarrass the Obama cam¬paign and minimized his role in the lib-eration of Ohrdruf.
Heroic
“I have no heroic story to tell,” he said. “I was just there.”
He had seen plenty of death during his two years in the Army, but the cru¬elty of what he witnessed at Ohrdruf appalled him. In the courtyard, he saw lying dead “a circle of the inmates in their rags, and you could see they were mostly near starvation. They were there with their tin cups like they were called to get food, then had been machine gunned.”
In a shed, he saw bodies stacked like cord wood. The survivors, many near starvation, were “nothing but just skin
over bones with nothing, no flesh at all.” He said the 1993 movie “Schindler’s List” was “very good, but it didn’t begin to show the desperate plight of the prisoners. I guess in real life you can’t really starve people next to death in order to make a movie.”
After the war, Payne went to college in Kansas and then to graduate school at the University of Chicago, where Obama would later lecture on constitu¬tional law. He later became interested in computers and how they could be used in libraries. He retired at age 70 as assistant director of the University of Chicago’s library.
Payne is proud of his great-nephew, who is prominently displayed in family photos.
“He’s truly an astounding young man and always has been,” he said.
As attention turns to the Holocaust with Obama’s expected visit to the Israeli memorial on Wednesday, Payne reflected on the lessons of history.
“Clearly to me it’s proof that there’s no limit to what a man will do to man and what government out of control will do,” he said. “I guess we need to be on our guard eternally.”


Not only did Stanley Ann want to go to University of Chicago, she was accepted there as well. Besides being familar with Chicago (if she ever visited Uncle Charlie) she must have visited the campus of the University of Chicago at some point.

Castro speaking about Malcolm X
This event was September 1960 when Castro visited the UN.

“....I always remember when I met with Malcolm X at the hotel “Teresa”, because he was the one who gave us support and made it possible for us to be accommodated there. We had two choices: one was the patio in the United Nations; when I told this to the Secretary General he was horrified at the thought of a delegation camping in tents there; and then we received Malcolm X’s offer, he had talked to one of our comrades, and I said: “That is the place, Hotel ‘Teresa’.” And there we went, so I have personal memories of him. ...”

I found Pepsionice comment of interest, I have often asked myself, why would we assume the April birthdate to be correct, when nothing else is?

At some point...one of the dots will suddenly not connect to the natural next part of the story...because we are going to find out bits that aren’t part of the “legend”. The birth certificate would readily identify his birthdate....which a number of people are now believing that its in the April/May timeframe....not August...which would mean that Stanley Ann was preg before they came to Hawaii.

I wonder how close Madelyn was to her brother Charles. Was he an influence in Stanley Ann's life?

Did she visit during the summers? Perhaps that is why she wanted to go there. Surely she had visited the campus prior to applying. Was Chicago a place she was already comfortable with? Having been accepted to the University of Chicago, Stanley would not allow it. Wonder why? The distance or the company she might keep?

Always more questions than answers, but sooner or later that one nugget will glisten in the sunlight.

I agree, and thank you for your research and input, Stanley Ann having an Uncle at the U Chicago explains much as to why she made application to go there. An application that she would have made in person, after her graduation. With her marxist education and background, the events at the UN in September 1960, with Castro and Krushchev at the UN would have been a huge drawcard for her, I believe. It's perhaps no wonder then that her schoolfriend said she lost track of Stanley Ann after graduation. Stanley Ann may have been in Chicago and New York.

She was successively impregnated by several men, all of whom were black men, and truth to tell, Obama does not know who his father is. Which is why he does not want to show his COLB. It has thirteen names under the category "father". (sarc. off)

BTW, the Obot Troll Patrol has heavily innvested several birther threads this evening. They must have gotten a raise from "Ram Manual"

Will they pay their taxes?

From what I have found during my months of research, Ann Dunham never applied to the University of Chicago, that was yet another myth passed on.
This sentence found in a really quick search notes there is no documentation that Ann ever applied to University of Chicago:

There is no documentation that she ever applied the University of Chicago.
Found at the following site:

http://mcauleysworld.wordpress.com/2008/10/30/barack-obama-the-unauthorized-biography-of-a-marxist-part-2-the-hawaii-years-frank-marshall-davis/

As mentioned this was from a really quick search done before I start another job, if you wish I will find confirmation tomorrow.

Also from some searching today and earlier this evening I found that the student airlift left Kenya September 5, 1959 and spent a period of time(IIRC it as at least two weeks) orienting the students at a central location before they went on to the schools they would be attending. Knowing this means that UH had a late start to their school years.

Uncanny, yes. But he also has an uncanny resemblance to Paul Robeson.

It is much easier to put Ann in the same room with him. He was her teacher.

As graduation neared for the class of 1960, Dunham had hoped to join many of her classmates at the University of Washington, and was also accepted to the University of Chicago, according to Obama’s memoir, the best-selling “Dreams from My Father.”

There it is again. University of Chicago. from ‘Dreams’ -I have not read the book, but I’ll take odds that obama never mentioned her uncle was at that University.

Castro was at the UN September, 30, 1960.

Madelyn, Ann, Jr and Maya visited Chicago the year Jr was 12. There is a picture on this thread of that visit and it shows Ann, Jr, and her Uncle Jon(the youngest Payne). From your earlier post Uncle Charlie retired from U of C in 1995, five years approximately, after Jr was offered his position there. In 1995 Jr and the Jackie wannabe went to Bali so he could “finish his book” but Jr never mentioned that he had an Uncle Charlie at the University.

There is no way of knowing if that information is true, since we know that much of the information in Jr’s book is not true. Examples of lies are his great grandmother comitting suicide, his grandfather being kicked out of school for punching the principal in the nose, his father was a king, his father left when he was two, his grandmother went to work in Hawaii to support the arrival of an unexpected baby, he had his own office and secretary while working at BIC, he was instrumental in having asbestos removed from the building in Chicago etc. etc. etc. If his “fairytale” were presented to a publisher today it would have to be labeled as fiction.
I did know about Castro being at the U.N. in 1960 and that Malcolm X met him while Castro was there.

I can think of quite a few more, but these are among my favorite "Dream-whoppers": the '60's Life magazine article about the black man bleaching his skin -- that was never written; listening to the Watergate hearings during their mainland vacation in the summer of '72 (the hearings were held in the summer of '73); one of his "earliest memories" of sitting on his GF's shoulders as the astronauts from one of the Apollo missions arrived at Hickam AFB after a successful splashdown (the manned Apollo missions didn't begin until '68, and the earliest ones involving fanfare at Hickham would be in the '70-72 time frame.) Then there's my all-time favorite as a native NY'r: sleeping in an alley, with his luggage, in Spanish Harlem on his first night in NYC, and waking up with a live chicken for company -- simply awesome!

Unfortunately, the book would still be accepted on an "as-is" basis today. Fact-checking is as non-existent in publishing nowadays as it is in other print media -- it's "what's hot" that counts. "Dreams" was stone cold when it was first released in '95, selling less than 10M copies (most of them probably to Barry's family), then rocketing off the charts upon the unveiling of the Obamessiah at the 2004 convention.

Robeson was under investigation for commie ties too. Had his passport pulled for a time period for travel to places like Cuba, Moscow and others. He was also friends with Kenyatta, namesake of Kenya.

Paul Robeson became known as a citizen of the world, as comfortable with the people of Moscow and Nairobi as with the people of Harlem. Wherever he traveled, Robeson championed the cause of the common person. Among his friends, he counted future African Leader Jomo Kenyatta, India's Nehru, anarchist Emma Goldman and writers James Joyce and Ernest Hemingway.

We don’t have absolute proof that she was actually there on the first day of classes. She could have been traveling with parents and started later.

Just because the CLASSES started on Sept. 26, 1960 she might have physically started later. It happens all the time.

S. Sider Had 1st-Row View Of Real Story
Chicago Sun-Times - Sunday, November 8, 1992
Author: Lee Bey
Former Chicago schoolteacher Christine Johnson won’t go see the new Malcolm X movie premiering this month.

She doesn’t need to, she says: She was a friend of Malcolm X and had a front row seat to the last five years of his life.

“Yes, I knew him,” said Johnson, 83, a South Side resident. “Whenever Malcolm came to town, he would call me. I don’t know what Spike Lee has in his (movie) but everybody these days are saying `I knew Malcolm ,’ but they didn’t.”

Johnson, who changed her name to Catherine X during her stint with the Nation of Islam, met Malcolm X in New York in 1960 . He let Johnson set up black history exhibits at Nation of Islam events.

And when the organization needed a principal for its University of Islam, then located at 54th and Greenwood, Malcolm X selected Johnson.

They talked often by telephone between 1960 and Malcolm ‘s death in February, 1965, she said.

BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY VOTING RIGHTS ACT, WORDS OF MALCOLM X ARE LEGACIES OF ‘60S 25 YEARS AFTER SLAYING, ACTIVIST IS HEARD ANEW

Author: CONSTANCE C. PRATER Free Press Staff Writer

EXCERPT

Said Dr. Ali Mazrui, a former University of Michigan political science professor, “Some things are changing, but many of the evils are still there.” Mazrui, author and moderator of “The Africans,” the 1986 Public Broadcasting Service TV series, teaches at the State University of New York in Binghamton.

Mazrui said he met Malcolm X in 1960 , when the professor was a graduate student at Columbia University in New York.

Malcolm X ‘s Controversial Legacy ... Movie Sparks Eagerness, Anxiety
St. Louis Post-Dispatch - Sunday, November 15, 1992
Author: Lori Teresa Yearwood ; Of the Post-Dispatch Staff

EXCERPT

Alice Windom, coordinator for the Bush Center for Law, Policy and Social Change at the University of Missouri-St. Louis, was among the activists who endorsed the letter of concern sent to Lee. She first met Malcolm X when she heard him speak at a Muslim mosque in Chicago in 1960 .

The way he spoke forced her to think about the reality of her life at age 24 - about how white landlords slammed doors in her face when she went apartment hunting because they ‘’didn’t rent to coloreds,’’ and about how she couldn’t try on hats in certain department stores because that was a privilege for whites alone.

‘’I just sat there and thought how proud I was that Malcolm was standing there and telling the truth, not sucking up to white people at all,’’ Windom said.

Two years later, Windom was so weary of life in America that she said she was ‘’just waiting for some white person to step on my foot so I could knock their head off.’’ She moved to Africa.

She crossed paths with Malcolm X again when he traveled to Ghana, in western Africa, to garner support in his effort to charge America with ‘’violating the human rights’’ of blacks.

Windom was working for the United Nations and helped him establish ties with officials in Ghana. The two became close friends.

‘’He was easy to talk to because he didn’t put on airs at all,’’ said Windom, now 56. ‘’It showed in the way he carried himself - not at all majestically - but rather in a lanky, imperfect way. He was 6 feet 4 inches, you know, but he wasn’t intimidating. He looked you in the eye and listened to what you said.’’

At night, Malcolm X often would gather Windom and other U.N. employees to talk about the condition of blacks in the United States. The civil rights leader had been separated from the Nation of Islam and was working to establish his own activist organizations, the Muslim Mosques Inc. and the Organization of Afro-American Unity.
