Skip to comments.Fraud in the U.S.A.: FactCheck swaps high-res photos with crappy low-res ones!
Posted on 09/20/2008 9:19:30 AM PDT by Polarik
That's right. They replaced all of their high-res, image files with lo-res image files that are 90% smaller than their originals.
BUT, they have the gall to leave their original file sizes listed on their links. So, like instead of getting a 2 MB image file, you now get a 200K image file.
In FactCheck's original story, posted, August 21, they made specific references to a few of my discoveries I made about the COLB forgery in an attempt to dismiss them out of hand:
Among the most frequent objections we saw on forums, blogs and e-mails are:
* No creases from folding are evident in the scanned version.
* In the zoomed-in view, there's a strange halo around the letters.
And, they devoted an entire paragraph to dissing my most important finding:
The scan released by the campaign shows halos around the black text, making it look (to some) as though the text might have been pasted on top of an image of security paper. But the document itself has no such halos, nor do the close-up photos we took of it. We conclude that the halo seen in the image produced by the campaign is a digital artifact from the scanning process.
As everyone who has read my report should know by now that the pixel anomalies, that they call "haloes," are absolutely not scanner artifacts.
Well, on Thursday, the first part of my report made the front page of PHil Berg's website, ObamaCrimes.com, with my promise to show how the forgery was made, and to throughly debunk the FactCheck photos in Part Two.
Last night, I got a call from his legal assistant telling me that FactCheck had done this switch. I thought that she was talking about the thumbnails of the images, and not the downloadable ones.
Then, I saw it for myself -- and you should, too.
Anyone else think they're running scared???
Eventually you’ll get zotted for the troll you are. You have far too big of a mouth for such a newbie. So yeah, I will have fun trying.
Of course he doesn’t. He’s here to provoke. That’s the definition of provocateur.
s/b “one day” typo sorry.
I think given it’s *one day* after the posting - ya gotta at least wonder.
Wondering is beneath him; after all, he’s the self-proclaimed “smartest person in this forum”, so he has it all figured out.
You sound like a child in diapers. Ya haven’t been around as this has developed and you don’t appear to recognize the hypocracy of an anti-smear Obama operation that refuses to diffuse the entire issue by simply providing normal documentation.
Alot of good hearted intelligent folks have worked on this issue and you aren’t one. My 2 cents sez you need to get back to your milk and oreos. Leave the heavy work to the adults.
First of all, I want to let everyone know that I have uploaded ALL of FactCheck's original high quality, large file size photos that they secretly and swiftly swapped with crappy, puny file size ones. Click on this album link to see the original photos
Next, take a look at the list of FactCheck's photos in the upper left-hand corner of their web page, Born in the U.S.A., and take notice of their original file sizes and hyperlinks that they have not rewritten.
Shown below is a spreadsheet that lists, for each of FactCheck's photo files, the original file name and size, the current file size, the dates that I downloaded each of them, and the percentage of file compression applied to each of the original files.
By subjecting the original set of COLB photos to these extreme percentages of file compression, without also reducing the image sizes, what you get are photos that look as large as the original ones, but are blurry, fuzzy, and totally useless for detecting any detail in them,
detail, that someone like myself, just might use to prove that FactCheck intentionally altered their photos and scan image to perpetuate a fraud on the American public.
I'd like to point out THE most important statement that FactCheck made, and that still exists, in their "Born in the USA" story:
You can click on the photos to get full-size versions, which haven't been edited in any way, except that some have been rotated 90 degrees for viewing purposes.
Thanks for the ping, Polarik, and thank you for your diligence in pursuing 0bama’s fraudulent birth certificate(s).
Pinging everyone to #28.
What happened to the photo from photobucket?
Sorry. I accidentally deleted the correct link.
“Eventually youll get zotted for the troll you are. You have far too big of a mouth for such a newbie. So yeah, I will have fun trying.”
You need to learn to read and stop acting like such a pathetic bitch. Disagreeing with you and a few stooges in here doesn’t make me a troll.
Try harder, it makes me laugh.
“You sound like a child in diapers.”
Did you type that or your mother? I don’t know how many times I have to tell you people that insults don’t prove a point. And bad insults not only don’t prove a point, they also make you look incredibly unoriginal.
“You dont find it a teensie bit odd that after hosting the larger photos, Factcheck makes this change onde day after Polariks latest info is posted to Bergs site?”
The silliness is much more than a day old. They probably assumed that this was a closed issue and switched to lower res that use less room on their servers. They probably assumed the issue closed because all of the intelligent people on the planet agree that it is closed.
“Of course he doesnt. Hes here to provoke. Thats the definition of provocateur.”
In my absolute brilliance, I have stated on more than one occasion that I am here for the truth. I am here to focus on real issues, not internet rumor. I am here to discuss things like Obama’s stance on abortion, his desire to create a marxist state, his desire to chat and hug tyrannical dictators. It is difficult to do so when people are busy lying. I hold myself to a higher standard.
And if you, unlike others here, would do some research before you post, you would not have said that I am here to provoke. You would take a look at other articles that I have posted. But I guess you would much rather just lash out against anyone who disagrees with you. Keep telling me I’m here to provoke, it’s humorous. Jump on board the bandwagon and tell me that I hate the Constitution and I’m in bed with the Obama camp.
“a look at other articles that I have posted”
Frankly, that’s not really necessary.
You are a loon - of some young age and/or addiction.
There’s a place called Huffington Post you might enjoy or perhaps dailyKos. Have fun, don’t stay up too late - you have school tomorrow.
“Frankly, thats not really necessary.

That is pretty much the response I expected from someone of such low standards.
If you had brain one, which you do not, you would even take the time to see the posts I have written against both of those web sites. But ridiculous insults are more important to you. If only you realized how stupid you look.
I admit I’m ignorant of your prior posts in ANY forum.
Perhaps you would give me/us some links to something of substance. Your performance here is less than stellar.
In my short time with Freepers, I’ve not seen them very much off base or crass. And I do sense that you are an anomoly. So give me/us something to examine that demonstrates your position as all knowing.
Very few darn folks have the balls to take themselves above the discussion (clinton, obama, pelosi, reid, dean) and fewer yet can justify that contention (only Jesus Christ)
So share your insights.
