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.

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
No misinformation. Just forgery.
The minute I heard Bill instructing Obama to kiss his ass, I knew this was going to become real. When Hillary said Obama was ‘unelectable’, I read it literally.
WOW!! BUMP to read later!!!!!
He isn’t authorized to practice in Illinois.
The site has been around for quite awhile- and covers mostly Israeli news and doings..but for whatever reason- they’ve taken an interest in this story- and have done outstanding research. This is the 4th piece they’ve done on Certigate.
Take the time to read all 4 pieces. Compelling.
Thanks, I’ve been reading along and checking the links.
It’s a forgery. But why do it?
So, some liberal admits to creating forgeries and we assume that obama’s is one of them? S T R E T C H ?
So I read the whole article looking for the spot that says somebody had admitted forging the document. It turns out he had created other, similar forgeries, but not that document.
The MSM didn’t pick it up because nothing has changed. Given their liberal leanings, we won’t be seeing anything about this until somebody proves it is a fake.
But he WAS practicing there at one time, he worked in a law firm in Chicago.
Or was he only doing para-legal type work there?
(Shamelss, knee-jerk speculation)
There is a group of die-hard Hillary supporters who started a "political" party called PUMA (Party Unity My Ass). I think that Bill was giving them props.
OK, will do.
I think that would be admission to the State Bar of Illinois. Now I'm wondering if he took the bar exam. Required for admission.
Show of hands from those who believe that this will disqualify Obama from the presidency.
Show of hands from those who believe that this is evidence that Obama was actually cloned in Brazil from a genetic cocktail of Adolf Hitler and Ayatollah Khomeini.
Show of hands from those who really just need to chill and have a....
HAPPY 4TH of JULY!
That is stupid, agreed. But 99% of Freepers think it actually matters to his eligibility to be President.
It doesn't matter how often you tell them. That's what is embarrassing.
I just dropped in and will leave now.
Who has the best summarized records of passportgate (where somebody got busted trying to access passport records for the candidates, and Obama shrieked the loudest) and even Condi Rice profusely apologized?
Lots of Urban areas on fire would be my guess.
Wonder where this POS works ?
Perhaps some Israelis think a US president who just might be a muslim is not in their best interests?
Anyone actually CONFIRMED this story before we get all warm and fuzzy ?
I hope and pray it is true !!!!!
You're factually and legally incorrect.
Is this the guy the article is talking about? Political Skills: canvassing, phonebanking, media design, strategy, policy, data mining, messaging, media stunts,
I understand why you think that way. But consider this point for a moment.
IT DOESN’T MATTER WHY the bc is a forgery- the point remains- it is.
What MATTERS is that on his OWN website, he has presented this as a legitimate, legal document. That has a name. It’s called FRAUD. It’s a crime.
Where he was born, if his parents were or were not married, if instead of African his father was really listed as Arab- ALL the speculation about WHY- is- for the momemt- beside the point.
I understand your point. And yes, people are conflating issues here.
Have a excellent Independence Day.
Probably because Israel knows that an Obama presidency would be awful for them too.
Well, well, well. Thank you for the link!
Well, its not like its a felony or anything, which would REALLY be disqualifying.
... oh wait, that would be disqualifying too... for a republican.
This is fun...like a robert ludlum novel, the real people behind the Obama covert plant are the Soviets and Chinese working with the Iranians. Where is Bourne when you need him?
Interesting point. I was born in ‘56, and I distinctly remember how wild things were from about 1966 until the end of the Viet Nam war, and Nixon’s resignation. It was just crazy then, 24/7. Being a young teen for much of that time, I just thought it was “normal” to live in interesting times, as the old Chinese proverb goes.
So, some liberal admits to creating forgeries and we assume that obamas is one of them? S T R E T C H ?
They have been gone over and over by some tech savvy freepers and others at length and the conclusion has been that these are either outright forgeries- or- they’ve been tampered with.
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.
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.
It is NOT stupid.
Read other FR post on the subject.
Based on the law in effect at the time of his birth, if he was actually born in another country, it doesn’t look like he is considered a natural-born citizen.
I think the law says that if only one parent is a US citizen, that parent must have lived in the US for 10 years, at least five of which was after the parent was 16.
Obama’s mother was 18 when he was born. Thus she had not lived in the US for 5 years after her 16th birthday.
Thus this is VERY important.
Obama will just have to be born again; that will resonate with his current faith-based shenanigans.
The perp of the ‘crime’ is Democrat - then why do this to one of his horses in the race?
Nope - too easily explained.
I still believe there is something amiss in the birth records of Obama - if not why has he not cleared it up???
His omissions are shouting at what I believe the man is deep inside with his avoidance behavior - he’ll put anything over to gain access to the prize hoping we’ll forget or accept a lame excuse from a Democrat flunky.
He is without conscience.
Is this presidential material?
