Skip to comments.'Let Them Eat Birth Certificates'

One feature that marks a totalitarian regime is media that serve as the government's information service. TASS, Radio Berlin, Voice of Hanoi -- these were all government entities that conveyed what the dictatorship wanted. The handout comes, the handout is published. The real danger point arrives when propaganda no longer rankles, but flows naturally. That's when authority carries more weight than evidence, and peer pressure suppresses independent thinking. It's also when captives become subjects.
Watching our free, First-Amendment-protected media react to the surprising release of President Barack Obama's long-form birth certificate, I have to wonder: What exactly is the difference? I exaggerate, but not much. It's been three weeks since Obama first made his long-form birth certificate public on April 27, 2011. Why, suddenly, did he do this, and not in 2008, 2009 or 2010 when this first of the missing bona fides became a focal point of deep national consternation? Why did Obama send lawyers to courtroom after courtroom to keep this simple document hidden -- and now mass-produce it on Obama 2012 campaign t-shirts? Why did Obama prefer to see Army Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin throw away his military career and go to prison for five months rather than, presto, authorize the document's release? The answers have something to do with political inroads Donald Trump was quite unexpectedly making simply by asking natural, obvious questions about Obama that neither Big Media nor someone of un-ignorable celebrity had ever asked before. But that's not the whole story.
We have the long-form birth certificate now -- or at least another highly questionable PDF of a scan of a copy of a document to stare at online (and, almost ghoulishly, on those Obama 2012 campaign T-shirts) -- but we don't have all the answers. Certainly we didn't get them from the "off camera and only pen and pad, not for audio" White House briefing on the document's release. That's because the media don't think, can't think to ask for them. Having spent years fending off the rare query about the long-form birth certificate like angry cats snarling that the president had already released his birth certificate, they didn't even seem to notice what chumps the new Obama document -- the one they said had already been released -- showed them all to be.
Either that, or they channeled their anger at ... Donald Trump. At that moment the non-declared GOP presidential front-runner, Trump got off his helicopter in New Hampshire also on April 27 to discuss his big coup, which is how he viewed the release of this first document in Obama's hidden paper trail. To say the media didn't share Trump's positive views on transparency is the understatement of the year.
First question to Trump: You're taking "credit" but a lot of people say what you caused was a distraction.
The president plays games for three years and Trump caused the "distraction"? And "distraction" from what -- White House talking points? Remember, this is supposed to be a professional journalist talking.
Second question to Trump, who said he still wanted to know what took Obama so long: Why is it relevant?
Again, this isn't supposed to be a member of Obama's re-election team, at least not officially. Another question: What are your qualifications to assess it (the birth certificate)?
Another question: Who cares (whether Obama releases his academic records)?
These aren't questions from reporters who follow facts where they lead. These are people who have circled the wagons, and woe to anyone outside. Meanwhile, back at the simultaneous White House briefing, the transcript shows what happened when one journalist haltingly attempted to do his job:
"Q. And this is going to sound -- I mean, you can just anticipate what people are going to -- remain unconvinced. They're going to say that this is just a photocopy of a piece of paper, you could have typed anything in there. Will the actual certificate be on display or viewable at any -- (laughter.)"
Laughter. That was the answer.
Evidence is a joke to media in thrall to authority, those whose incuriosity about the many mundane documents Obama has mysteriously withheld from us leads to copy fit only for a palace pamphlet. From the transcript: "Q. Dan, was there a debate about whether or not this deserved being discussed by the White House .... was there debate about whether or not this was worthy of the White House?"
Let them eat birth certificates.
Compare with this
The bottom one, which was produced by the President, was completely done by computer with the Courier New Font.
The Top one was done with an actual typewriter.
The President’s one has everything in a perfect straight line, and has the parents name using a tab key.
The top one, just by looking at the birth date, you can tell was typed up, because it is not in a perfect straight line.
Not much but it is a start. It's nice to see the skepticism spreading from World Net Daily to other major websites. Townhall.com is a pretty big deal. A very major conservative leaning news source.
Hope it keeps spreading. WND cannot do this by itself.
I’m Irate the media will Cover the IMF Scandal, Arnold’s love child & no one will adress the Fake BC of the arrogant Obama!!
Even Drudge Report will not cover this!!
I want Obama exposed & removed from the WH!!
What is it going to take??
Our government propaganda organ, also know as the Mainstream Corporate Media, is much better paid.
Look also at the dates next to the signatures at the bottom.
Diana West, is one of the best! very courageous. she took a lot of flak right here on FR, for saying we should get our brave troops out of Afghanistan, since we don’t have a defined enemy, mission, and the ridiculous ROE are killing them.
...as for the forgery points above, certainly they are suspicious, but not conclusive. no tabs, centering, etc, are curious, when all the other forms we have show clear tabs, left margins lined up, etc.
but to me, just these 3 below are simple, and definitive.
1) signatures of different resolutions (impossible!):
2) words without curving, typed under headers that curve with the photocopy:
3) boxes that are identical down to the pixel:
I don’t recall where I found it. I noticed right after the arrogant pos released the one on the bottom. Perhaps other Freepers seen it too
“What is it going to take??”
The election in 2012 of a patriotic American NBC President.
I have noticed that from the start when I first saw it on the Hawaiian newspaper website.
Release it to the media...in Internet form only. NO ACTUAL PAPER DOCUMENT TO BE EXAMINED .....Let THEM scramble like hell to prove it false.....Let their foresnic experts debunk it off the computer...See how interested they are about doing their job??....If they don't find out or make an effort.....make it go viral!....To the average layman it looks real and would explain alot
(Maybe some FReepers on here that follow this closely can explain where it came from...How about it FReepers?? If there is no easy explanation it could blow the top off the fraud in chief)
Yeah, I noticed them
The upper one is a known fake. Not only do the “typewritten” characters not line up vertically, they don’t even line up horizontally. It was a poorly executed cut-n-paste job by a rank amateur who didn’t know how a typewriter works.
Do U have confirmation of that?
Is there an actual paper document?
Not saying you’re wrong...but lets see the evidence...
“Did you also notice line 22 in the top one”
That’s just unbelievable, but is much more believable than the fake BO just put out.
There are hundreds of websites discussing in the minutest of detail "The Blaine Hoax", or the "Blaine Birth Certificate", or "The Blaine Spoof", etc. The BC that was used as a template clearly came from an early posting by Alan Blaine of his own Hawaiian BC.
But like I said, it's the incompentent way they computer/cut/pasted "typewriter" characters, with no regard to alignment, that really makes me laugh.
