Links don’t work
They all work for me.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Thank you very much. Can you fix the links? I looked at the copy and had my doubts, but I lack copier/printer expertise.
Everything about Osama Hussein Obama needs to be looked at under a high-powered microscope. Our country, our security, our future depends on exposing this radical front man for those that want to destroy America.
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.
“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.”
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.
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.
Bump for truth. Great job.
