Was Obama's "Certificate of Birth" manufactured?

Was Obama's "Certificate of Birth" manufactured?

Posted by Polarik on Friday, June 20, 2008 12:00:00 AM
The Daily Kos blog has posted a JPG that allegedly is Barack Obama's "Certificate of Birth." From a detailed analysis of the image and the text, it looks like it was created by a graphics program, and is not a true copy of an original, certified document.

I've been working with computers, printers, and typewriters for over 20 years, and given a set of printed letters, I can discern what kind of device made them. Printer output is quite different from the text created by a graphics program, and even if a document looks "official," it may not be.

The "Certificate of Birth," which I will call "COB," is posted on the Kos website as a color JPG. The reason for making it a color JPG, IMHO, is to induce the viewer to believe that this is a genuine copy of an original document -- something that a black & white, or even greyscale, reproduction would not convey as well.

Basically, anyone could have produced this document on his or her own computer, and I'll tell you why.

As represented by the JPG, the "original" COB seems to be a sheet of paper measuring 8.09" x 7.90" with a green "Rattan" pattern embedded in, or printed on, the paper and a "Bamboo mat" pattern for its border:

Photobucket

At the bottom of the JPG image, reading right from left, one can see following text:

OHSM 1.1 (Rev. 11/01) Laser     This copy serves as prima facie evidence of the fact of birth in any court proceeding. [HRS 338-13(b), 338-19]

There are a lot of problems with this statement, foremost of which is that the text in this document were produced by a graphics program and not a laser print, or any other printer, for that matter.

If the letters were made by a laser printer, you would be able to see the background, the pattern, through the spaces of the letters.

Here's a genuine copy of a real certificate of birth -- my own:

Photobucket

When text is entered via a graphics program, the pattern cannot be seen without noticeable distortion. However, when text is entered with a computer printer or typewriter, you can clearly see the pattern below the letters.

Here is a segment of the COB showing the letters, "Certificat" (from the "Certification" field) enlarged about: 500%:

Photobucket

Now, let's enlarge it some more:

Photobucket


The fuzzy outline is a dead giveaway that these letters were made by a graphics program. Also a dead giveaway is that the letters still retain a sharp outline. With printed or typed text, there is a clearly definable characteristic of a symmetrical shadow when the image is saved at a lower resolution,  that is, a more compressed JPG file.

Here is the word, "Certification," from my certificate of birth enlarged :

Photobucket

As you can see, there is virtually no distortion and no pixelation around the letters, and no dropouts from the background. The most noticeable pixelation and dropouts from the background can be seen in the Barack's father's name "HUSSEIN" on the COB:

Photobucket

Take a look at the area between the "S's in "HUSSEIN."  No hint of any background color. Plenty of grey and white pixels -- exactly what would result from enlarging text entered with a graphics program.

WAIT, there is an even bigger red herring here. All of the type on this document was produced by the same program.

Whatever made the text for all of the headings also made the text for all of the entries.

What's wrong with that?

Well, only that real certificates are created ahead of time by a commercial printer, or, at least, a different printer than the one used to create the data entries. This is why the headings on my certificate of birth look entirely different than the entries.

That is questionable by itself. But it is the way the text looks that gives it away.

Any text made by a typewriter, laser printer, or even inkjet printer, would NOT have the smeared, black & white pixels underneath it -- there would be several pixels bearing the same color as the paper, nor would the left side of the letters be clear and free of any artifacts or shadows. Scalable type produced by a graphics program will look about the same regardless of the magnification with a minimal or uneven staircase pattern of pixels on its sides, whereas printed text -- even laser text -- will show a clear, uniform staircase pattern of pixels on both sides of each letter that proportionately increase in size with magnification.

Here are some examples:

Here is the "Certificate" heading from Barack's COB enlarged 5 times:

Photobucket

Virtually all of the letters lack any shadows, and only the "A" and the "R" show only a slight, uneven staircase effect. Basically, the letters would look essentially the same -- especially letters made from straight lines like "I," "E," and "T," regardless of the magnification used to view them, and this is a key feature of scalable type produced by a graphics program.

Now, here is the "Certification," heading from my genuine certificate enlarged 5 times:

Photobucket
 
The double shadow appears on all letters, and this shadow grows proportionately in size as the letters are enlarged. Also, there is pronounced staircase effect on the "C," "A," and "R." Notice, too, that the "steps" are uniform in size, in contrast to the uneven staircase effect on the Barack headings.

Again, the most glaring anomaly in Obama's COB is the following:

All of the letters that appear on Barack's Certificate of Birth were made, at the same time, and by the same method -- which was the use of a graphics program and not the use of any printer.

You can also tell that this is an obvious Photochop by looking at the border patterns.

Looking at the corners of the darker green border, you can see that the border is discontinuous. In other words, the vertical border bars were made by drawing a long rectangle, copying that rectangle, and then overlaying each of them on either side:

UPPER LEFT CORNER OF BORDER

Photobucket


LOWER RIGHT CORNER OF BORDER


Photobucket

What is readily apparent is that the top and bottom horizontal border bars are overlapped by the top and bottom edges of two vertical rectangles.

If this certificate was a professionally-made, there would not be any overlaps, or any outlines of the side rectangles -- the border would appear to be one, continuous whole. Note, too, that both the left and right side rectangles are equal in length. It appears that they were made that way ( or cloned) to make the patterns line up.

Now, getting back to statements on the certificate, there is something else clearly wrong with the "OHSM 1.1" statement at the bottom -- besides the fact that it was produced by a graphics program. There should have been that distinctive "double S" mark preceding the Section number of the statute -- , as in §338-13 --  so as to indicate that a reference is being made to a particular section of a statute, which, in this case, is Chapter §338, Section 13.

As for the first part, the acronym, "OHSM," stands for "Office of Health Statistics Management," which is not the responsible office within the Department of Health for issuing a certificate of birth. The "1.1" that follows refers to a non-existent document. If there were a "1.1", it would mean a revision of "Form 1" or "Document 1," and since "Document 1" is the form for a "Marriage Certificate," "OHSM 1" would refer to a Marriage Certificate form, and "OHSM 1.1," would refer to another version of that Marriage Certificate form, rather than a "Certificate of Live Birth" form.

Also, in this line, there is a reference to "HRS Section 338-13, paragraph (b)" which states, "Copies of the contents of any certificate on file in the department, certified by the department shall be considered for all purposes the same as the original, subject to the requirements of sections 338-16, 338-17, and 338-18."

OK...so where is the certification by the department?

Not only is there no department certification, there is also the absence of any watermark on the paper. Official state documents are supposed to have a watermark on the paper -- like my certificate of birth -- especially when that document is a very important one, like a certificate of birth.

A certified document must have a signature (or signatures) from individuals within the State's Department of Health who are authorized to reproduce the document, and to certify that the document is genuine.

Nothing like that appears anywhere in this JPG.

Also, the official Seal of Hawaii in this JPG is a 2nd generation, black & white bitmap copy of the original seal -- at best.

Photobucket

You would think that the seal would be in color, like the original
Photobucket
or at least a higher quality reproduction if this was a copy of an original document.

In short, there is nothing in this copy to indicate that it is, in fact, a "certified copy."  As I have shown above, there is a whole lot of evidence that it is a manufactured copy. There certainly is a very strong motive for creating one.

Unless the voting public is given a real birth certificate to examine, the question of Barack's birth is still up in the air.

I’m hardly an expert, but his analysis seems damning. Especially the border - which he’s right on. They are clearly rectangles drawn in a graphics program and only crudely put together.

The only questionable thing about Obama’s birth is his parents’ marital status. Even he is not sure when, where, or if they actually got married.

Where is the raised seal? I got a copy of my birth certificate a few years ago. The clerk placed a raise seal on the copy. There was also a bar code and a serial number. These all are used to identify the document as an certified copy.

Certainly an Hawaii FReeper could try to request his/her own "Certification of Live Birth," and then we would all have something real to consider.

If one looks at the normal resolution image (first pic in thread), letters with unconnected “islands” like “O” clearly block out the background pattern, which is consistent with a digital forgery. Even jpeg compression would bleed some color, but the above sample is entirely opaque in the “islands”. The sloppy registration flaws in the lithography is also convincing evidence of a forgery.

It seems obvious that this is a laserprint of a computerized report, showng data about Obama that was pulled from a database. All of the technology is very modern.

That doesn't make the data suspect. Now, perhaps there are grounds to think the data is suspect. But a modern computerized birth certificate output doesn't raise any red flags for me.

My eyes aren’t that good, either. But, it seems to me that this issue should be very important to a great many people, and we are not hearing about it in the MSM.
Experts are available who can examine the document. Or, perhaps someone could do some really independent investigation in the islands to settle this question.

Interesting...

Official birth certificates from most states are freshly generated at the time they are requested. If you request a copy of your birth certificate, the current computer system cranks one out, so of course it would have modern graphics.

Not to mention that, if I’m not mistaken, it came from Daily Kos.

On that basis alone, we probably should have assumed it a forgery until proved otherwise.

I agree. I work in PS and there are a lots of bad areas that could lead one to think it is not a copy of the original but created on a computer.

Anyone else?

The information added to birth certificates at that time of Obama’s birth were typed in. This document is modern looking. I would like to see Obama’s original birth certificate from the early 60s.

A non-story. Many states do not issue certified photocopies of the original certificate, but generate new legally valid documents when a request is filed.

New York, for instance, does this, and evidently Hawaii does, as well.

Nonsense. These are merely certifications that a REAL DOCUMENT is on file somewhere in Hawaii where they keep the birth records.

That's what's done in every state and territory.

Nothing new here ~ just some pale imitations trying to do a Dan Rather deal.

Remember, at some point we had 22 different major documentable claims about the Dan Rather forgeries and I was able to rationally dispose of 21 of them. The only one that passed and couldn't be rejected for objective reasons was "kerning". It was pretty obvious that the photocomposition guy who did the job left "kerning" in the on position when he set up his Microsoft Word commands.

"kerning" didn't happen in the world of typewriters back when "W" was in the Air Force.

Frankly, I doubt the puke is human but none of you guys want to do the hard work to prove that, and so far all your work on certificates like this is demonstrating nothing other than the fact that WP programs are used to set up digital document print formats, which is hardly news.

My suspicion is that his religion was listed as Muslim on his birth certificate. I was born in the 50’s and my birth certificate says Christian on it. He has already lied that he was never a Muslim so he can't produce an original as it would expose him as a liar.

Is there someone on FR living in Hawaii who was born in Hawaii the same year as Obama, so they can send a copy of their legitimate birth certificate to show what a real one is supposed to look like?

Is that, in fact, the way the Aloha State responds when someone asks for a certified copy of their birth certificate, with a computer-generated copy? Perhaps. Perhaps not.

As was said above, some Honolulu Freeper born around '61 should ask for a copy of his/her birth certificate and see what happens.

This is not definitive, because it’s likely that Hawaii issues computer-printed birth certificates these days.

But it reminds me of the way Jean Kerri released/but didn’t release his Form 180. He gave it to a couple of trusted friends, and they released only those parts that were favorable but suppressed the nasty details. He never did actually release his Form 180 in the sense of giving permission for investigators to get it directly from the archives.

The same problem here. IF OBAMA HAS A LEGITIMATE BIRTH CERTIFICATE, why won’t he give permission for legitimate investigators to go directly to the State of Hawaii and ask them for a copy, instead of releasing a digital picture of it on a biased and generally unreliable web site?

Release the Form 180. Release the birth certificate.

Really,
taking into consideration that Obama is now the definite candidate for the Democrats, I am severely limited in the amount of seriousness I invest in all these accusations.

I doubt that Obama would allow his birth certificate to be in public circulation, especially if it was so questionable.
If he's as tricky as people are making him out to be, how could he slip up?

My suspicion is that his religion was listed as Muslim on his birth certificate.

Now THAT is a very interesting comment. Back in those days, people called a spade a spade and that sort of information was commonly included in public documents. A modern, computer-generated birth certificate may be perfectly legitimate, but the format of the output would likely NOT include such information. We now live in a PC world.

If that's the case, I can certainly see why Obama would rather release this version of his certificate rather than something closer to the original.

An earlier thread noted that the State of Hawaii will alter a birth certificate whenever ordered to do so by a court, and will hide the original.

So all Obama would have to do to change it—for instance, to change the name on it, or even the date of birth—would be to get a court order. Or possibly the original used the term “negro,” which was commonly used at the time, but that was then changed to “African.”

After these changes are made, and there could have been several over the years, you get a computer printout of the new information, and the original certificate—if it still exists at all—is locked away somewhere and unavailable. Probably the original paper certificates have been photocopied or microfilmed or digitized into a computer, and then destroyed.

Not so. The footprints that get pressed into the birth certificates in the hospital are for identification purposes.

Wherever Obama was born, if in the US anyway, the hospital has a copy of his birth certificate stating the attending physician and address of the mother/parents.

You have to read what he said. he is not saying that it is supposed to be a copy of the original BC. He is saying this document is NOT a genuine, official print out of a computer generated Certificate of Birth. It is one created by a graphics system incompatible with an official computer generated document.

Barak's is compressed a lot more in the jpeg format than yours.

Barak:
1024x1000=1,024,000
compressed size: 113118
ratio: 9.05

yours:
1021x851=868,871 pixels
compressed size: 296015
ratio: 2.94

Also, your image has large white areas which are almost infinitely compressable, so the compression ratio of the "interesting" sections is probably closer to 2.7.

Additionally, yours is a black&white image, so no color information has to be saved. Barak's is full color, so three times the data has to be saved.

Go back and compres yours to about 90,000 bytes and then compare the images. That still won't handle the color difference, but it will start showing what you lose in compression.

Another HUGE blunder. In 1961 “African” was not a “race”. His father would have been listed as “black”, possibly “Negro” and maybe even “colored”. The person who reproduces them at request DOES NOT change any data for political correctness as that would be falsifying official government documents.

Our grandson was born in HI. The background paper is the same except sharper and clearer on my grandson’s. The border is much darker on my grandson’s birth certificate. The seal looks somewhat smaller on my grandsons but both are black instead of in color. No we are not going to publish his birth certificate.
