Another doctored image deepens Obama mystery
WND ^ | July 18, 2012 | Jerome R. Corsi

Posted on 07/18/2012 7:04:39 PM PDT by Smokeyblue

Does a family photograph of a young Barack Obama posted on the president’s Facebook campaign page offer a clue to the identity of his real father?

A professional graphic artist who examined the 1973 photo believes the image of Obama’s mother, Ann Dunham, was airbrushed into the scene to cover up an African-American man who was standing next to Obama at the Honolulu airport.

Filmmaker Joel Gilbert, who commissioned the analysis, told WND there’s substantial evidence that the man in the original photograph was Frank Marshall Davis, the Communist Party member, pro-Soviet propagandist and pornographer who played a fatherly role in Obama’s teen years.

In his full-length documentary “Dreams from My Real Father,” Gilbert presents a compelling case that Davis was Obama’s biological father as well as his ideological mentor. He believes the Dunham family recruited the Kenyan student Barack Hussein Obama to act as the father, to cover up an illicit affair with a subversive political activist.

Gilbert posted a page on his website at the time this article was published with details of his find.

Gilbert says the black male hand under Obama’s armpit is strikingly similar to the right hand of Davis.

“We know from Obama’s own writing and interviews with Davis’ neighbors, that Obama was a regular visitor to Davis’ house from age 10,” Gilbert told WND. “This doctored photo on Obama’s own Facebook page seems to be part of a pattern of document forgery by President Obama to hide his biological and ideological relationship to communist Frank Marshall Davis.”

holy crap, that is a black man’s hand. Is it possible someone in Obama’s camp put the black hand in there just to mess with the birthers?

If you get a chance to see the film mentioned in this article, do so, and pass around. It has great history, too, of the communist movement in the 40s thru 60’s and how they infiltrated the dockworkers on the West Coast and in Hawaii.

I don't think so. As a professional graphic artist (since 1972) who has worked with both the old style film techniques and modern Photoshop, I would say her image was masked and then double printed with the original masked negative then the final photo would have been touched up with an airbrush to smooth the edges etc.

Obama’s Fake Family Photo: Obama Photoshopped into Central Park Bench Photo With Grandparents
deathby1000papercuts.com ^ | April 8, 2011 | LBG1
 

Posted on Friday, April 08, 2011 10:34:21 AM by BenLurkin

Why did Newsweek remove Barack Obama photos?

Why would someone photoshop a young Barack Obama into a photo of his grandparents sitting on a bench in Central Park? A photo that appeared in New Yorker editor David Remnick’s Obama bio, ‘The Bridge’.

Whenever Obama’s mother was put, or stood in the picture it seems that she was very, very light white. I bet Obama hates to look at pictures of her that remind him of his white half.

Something just doesn’t sit right with me. This photo is CLEARLY doctored. So is the one on the bench with grandpa’s floating hand.

So, is someone doing bad jobs on purpose for a reason.

What reason???

It just makes no sense to me.

Or were these faked up photos done in the 60’s when it was harder to fake photos.

This one blows my mind because it is so obvious that is not Dunham’s hand.

There must not be very many photos of Obama for him to put up that big fat kid one. Look’s more like FMD than Sr in that photo.

I don’t understand what you are saying — can you put in layman’s terms. Like why would someone go through that 3 step process you are talking about.

Also in the WND article (go look at) he mentions 8 more anomalies to this photo — maybe you could comment.

Thanks.ca

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Now, now. If that was FMD’s hand, it would be under no armpit.

I think maybe 30%-35% of the Obama narrative is true. The rest ... is a fiction novel sprinkled with bits of history to try and validate it.

Actually I think at least part of his hand over Obama's shoulder is part of his right hand. Compare the shape of the left first finger (over Obama's shoulder" to what's seen of the first finger on the man's right hand. Perhaps part of the thumb was pieced in and maybe that 2nd or 3rd finger on his right hand was cropped on the hand over Obama's shoulder as well.

I’ll give you that the hand belonged to a black dude.

But it doesn’t make sense that someone would go to such trouble to cover up what? That Obama was shown with Frank Marshall Davis? So?

We know Obama self acknowledged Davis was his mentor. Why the need to do a switcheroo?

Maybe Camp Obama needs another conspiracy NOW to occupy the right sphere for days/weeks.

They mention the seats. One explanation could be it is another seating section with different chairs. They are smaller seats, could sit closer to the wall and that could account for what you are seeing. But nothing can account for that black hand.

Judging from the height of the person taking the picture it well may be Stanley Ann who TOOK the photograph.

“Maybe Camp Obama needs another conspiracy NOW to occupy the right sphere for days/weeks.”

Anyone know how long this photo has been up and has it been seen anywhere else before now.

They know the photos are examined in detail by the birthers.

If this is a new photo that has been released they probably did this on purpose.

If you run a line that follows the bottom of the wall from right to left it doesn’t match on the other side of Stanley Ann.

The 0bama face on the dock photo is taken from one of the 1971 airport photos. The dock photo had someone else in it.

That's Frank Marshall Davis' right hand. He's got his hand clasped due to holding sun glasses. He was probably originally standing approximately where Ann now is, or a bit to the right of that. There is no possible way anyone can successfully argue this is Ann's hand. It's too large and would indeed be lighter in tone even if in a shadow.

This SHOULD trigger a Congressional investigation, but it won't. Some allege Davis was a spy for the Soviet Union, so Barack's grooming could certainly be connected to a much bigger Soviet plot... "More flexible" now takes on a whole new meaning.

In Photoshop, it’s difficult to edit some areas. This forger simply thought Frank’s hand was okay to leave in place. Frank was originally in this photo, not Ann. The forger replaced Frank with Ann, and simply left Frank’s hand untouched.

I’ve analyzed it using several different methods in Photoshop and can see no evidence of the photo being manipulated.

I think her hand, though it does look very dark, is simply in a shadow.

Oh, pretty much the same way that journalists from several places in America and not refer to him as “Kenyan-born” for 20 years all by “accident”.

If I had some potentially embarrassing photo from my past and if I thought if the truth got out it could damage me or my career, I do not think I would spend my time trying to get control of them.

I would do the opposite. I would flood the market with embarrassing obvious fakes.

This way if a real photo should surface it can be brushed aside as a fake. True believers and true haters do not care about the truth. It is those in the middle that need to be confused so they give you the benefit of the doubt.

We know the main stream media will not investigate any story that may harm this President. So the fakes only have to be good enough to get it out there to cause doubt and something to be held up when any evidence is presented.
