But the problem with most of this research is that it's "geeky," requiring at least some computer knowledge ("layers," "fonts," "anti-aliased," "chromatic aberration," and the like) to understand that the technical arguments for the "birth certificate" being fake are valid. Thus, it's very difficult to prove to the general public, which typically doesn't know much about documents except how to read them, that the Obama "birth certificate" really is a forgery.
So last summer, I wondered if there would be some way to demonstrate that this "birth certificate" is indeed a fake, just by looking at the document itself and without resorting to computer software or to any knowledge about how computers produce documents. And, after studying it for a while, I realized that the forgery fails the "pitch test."
This is a check you can perform yourself, without fancy software of any kind -- or even a computer -- once you have printed out the forgery onto a piece of paper. Even a six-year-old with scissors and the paper image can perform, and understand, this test. (In other words, the test is simple enough that even a dumbass journalist can understand it.)

I like that idea of carrying a snapshot of the misaligned characters on one's phone. Great conversation starter (stopper?) at parties, at the bus stop, in line at the DMV, etc. :)
This is something that puzzles me. Back in the day, Rush used to reference articles from American Thinker almost everyday. One might assume it was one of his favorite places to visit. Now...nary a peep.
BTW, Heather Childers must have “done her time”. She’s back on Fox News.
It is obvious the Pres has access to forgers of the highest quality. So why would he produce a phony certificate that is easily shown to be forged?
There are only two possibilities I can see.
1. For some obscure Machievillian reason, he wants it to be determined to be fake.
2. It isn’t fake but merely appears to be so.
Occam’s Razor, to my mind, indicates 2 as considerably more likely. In fact, the “fakeness” of it makes it more likely to be real.
This is similar to the claim that “Bush lied” about WMDs in Iraq. That he knew they weren’t there.
It is obvious to me that if this were the case, intelligence officers would have brought WMDs along to be “found.” You can believe Bush to be stupid if you like, but certainly some of his handlers were not dumb.
not sure what’s going on with rush but he’s changed A LOT recently. can’t even listen to him anymore. he seems to spend a lot of time talking about nothing in particular. just my opinion though...
The writer gives FAR too much credit to Obama voters here.
Am wondering, given the predominance of the 'Courier 10' and "Elite 12"; if either of these is either; or, if some other less popular/available type is used here and can origin be identified; as in typeface from a typewriter made in China versus USA; or elsewhere?
Meantime; innovation/technology changed more than a few faces of time.
Built in 1910, the Emerson Typewriter Factory has served the Woodstock community in a variety of functions for nearly 100 years. This exceptional and unique industrial building that was once the origin of half of the worlds typewriters is now being transformed into stunning modern loft spaces. Once again, this famed building is a jewel in the crown of the historic city of Woodstock. . .http://www.emersonlofts.com/
On the 'etc'; the Post Office often has long lines. . .grocery store; and of course; there are those lines outside voting booths at one's polling/precinct where the 'conversation and demo' could be particularly interesting.
How about a slow line at Starbucks/lol. . .am imagining the response, say. . .in San Francisco.
Actually, DL has an intriguing theory on that. Said theory aside, who are these forgers of the highest quality that he can call up and demand spring into action to produce this masterpiece of a fugazzi? These charlatans have been bluffing, bullying and race-carding their way through this entire diabolical saga from the beginning and didn't count on Donald Trump "going 'birther'". They rushed this thing, because they never expected to be called on it in the national media by a well known, charismatic personality who's very hard to ignore.
"There are only two possibilities I can see."
Really? Just two? That seems a bit. . . myopic.
"In fact, the fakeness of it makes it more likely to be real."
Okay, that just doesn't make any logical sense. Did you read the article?
"It is obvious to me that if this were the case, intelligence officers would have brought WMDs along to be found. You can believe Bush to be stupid if you like, but certainly some of his handlers were not dumb."
I don't think that Bush is either stupid or dishonorable. Likewise, I don't think that's an apt analogy.
You're of the opinion that you think the "birth certificate" released by the WH on 27 April 2011 isn't fake. Got it. Your arguments to that effect however, could use a bit of buttressing. Throwing around terms like Occam's Razor does nothing in that regard if the follow up argument is less than solid.
The author’s website is well worth a visit.
There’s alot of info on the issue.
Check out the March 26, 2012 entry on this page:
It’s always so good to read your comments. Wish you could stick around. Nonetheless, have a good day at work.
I'd buy tickets to watch that exchange (from a safe distance).
Is that why the HDOH changed the BC#s on Virginia Sunaharas and Stig Waidelichs BCs too?
And why they refuse to allow anybody to see original documents rather than a computer-generated abstract?
Is it why they altered their 1960-64 birth index to include legally nonvalid BCs, or why they refused until a year after the election to post their Administrative Rules online as required by law?
Is that why HI Gov Neil Abercrombie told a Star-Advertiser columnist that his investigation had found something actually written down but that it was not going to convince skeptics that Obama was born there?
Is it why 2 different posters both claimed to go personally to the Hawaii State Library and make birth announcement copies from the Star-Bulletin microfilms when in fact what they produced was a scan identical (right down to the hair on the page and waviness of the scans edges) to a scan given to Michael Rivero by somebody at the Advertiser Office?
Is it why the HSL librarian gave Lori Starfelt a deliberately-blurred image of the Advertiser announcement that didnt follow their protocol of having a copyright notice on the copy?
Is it why the microfilms that are in the libraries now have been microfilmed so poorly that they can not have been produced by the microfilming company who handled all the microfilming for the Advertiser and the Star-Bulletin (whose company name is on the boxes at these libraries)?
I could go on a long, long time but need to go to work. Theres WAY TOO much stuff that doesnt add up for this to be just some silly little game.
If it was some silly little game then Obama should face justice for what he did to Lt Col Terry Lakin and every other officer who (unlike him and all his stooges) had the honor to actually mean what they said when they swore to protect and defend the US Constitution.
Thanks for the link.
It'd be interesting to see a news story timeline paralleling this data:
Thank you. I actually came back from work to ask the mod to delete that comment because somebody could misconstrue it to be a threat. I posted a revised comment.
It’s just so difficult for me to express how putrid the behavior of Obama and his stooges is, and especially when I think of the military guys who offer everything in defense of this country I get so angry. It’s like he has conspired to steal their honor, and that’s more valuable than everything someone of his caliber will ever see or hold in a lifetime. Because he has no honor himself he acts like it is a small thing to trample the honor of those who have it.
Sometimes with all the stuff going on I feel numb. But for some reason, the messing around with the military cuts me to my heart and it’s a stinging, burning fire whenever something twists that knife in my heart. I have to try to stay quiet because I care too much and then say things that should probably only be felt and not spoken.
I love our military people, and I hate what we have done to them.
Putrid is an excellent word for Obama! I can’t express my thoughts as well as some, but maybe I can be an encouragement to you and others such as Flotsem for keeping this subject alive. It is scandalous that it has dragged on so long! I have to tell myself that the truth will come out. Any day now...
The forgers would not only have to be "highest quality", but they would also have to be loyal. I'm sure it is quite easy for Obama to acquire a large army of liars and cheats, but it would be nearly impossible for him to get a large army who would also stay quiet about it. His circle of confidants who can be counted on to remain discreet is quite small, and not very capable.
.Unless I'm mistaken, there are a number of intelligence agencies working for the president.
I believe the production of false documents is a not uncommon activity of such agencies.
I'm highly agnostic on the whole subject.
I also think it is irrelevant. The Constitution allows for only one method of refusing a president from office, impeachment. There is, and should not be, any way for a lawsuit to remove him.
Of course, we the people have an opportunity to remove him this year, if we so choose.
