Skip to comments.Blogger admits Hawaii birth certificate forgery, subverting Obama claims (Uh-oh)
Posted on 07/03/2008 4:35:19 PM PDT by SE Mom
Jay McKinnon, a self-described Department of Homeland Security-trained document specialist, has implicated himself in the production of fraudulent Hawaii birth certificate images similar to the one endorsed as genuine by the Barack Obama campaign, and appearing on the same blog entry where the supposedly authentic document appears.
The evidence of forgery and manipulation of images of official documents, triggered by Israel Insider's revelation of the collection of Hawaii birth certificate images on the Photobucket site and the detective work of independent investigative journalists and imaging professionals in the three weeks since the publication of the images, implicate the Daily Kos, an extreme left blog site, and the Obama campaign, in misleading the public with official-looking but manipulated document images of doubtful provenance.
The perceived unreliability of the image has provoked petitions and widespread demands for Obama to submit for objective inspection the paper versions of the "birth certificate" he claimed in his book Dreams from My Father was in his possession, as well as the paper version of the Certificate of Live Birth for which the image on the Daily Kos and the Obama "Fight the Smears" website was supposedly generated.
Without a valid birth certificate, Obama cannot prove he fulfills the "natural born citizen" requirement of the Constitution, throwing into doubt his eligibility to run for President.
McKinnon, who says he is 25-30 years old, operates a website called OpenDNA.com and uses the OpenDNA screen name on various web sites and blogs, including his comments and diary on The Daily Kos. In recent years he has divided his time between Long Beach, California and Vancouver, British Columbia. He is a Democratic political activist, frequent contributor to the left wing Daily Kos blog, and a fervent Barack Obama supporter.

this is sweet.....
Clare McCaskil of Missouri introduced the bill however it has now become known that she did so as a favor to her friend, Barack Obama who wrote the bill. Why would Barack put a single parent savings clause in a bill designed to benefit his colleague John McCain who was born to two U S citizen parents? He knew; he has always known he is not a citizen nor eligible to be elected President.
Be sure and thank him for his service. Everyone should do that when they see someone in uniform.
Clearly the only way to resolve this is to make Kenya the 58th state.
That is not completely true but it is certainly fair comment. Initially, I attempted to follow the practice of citing references on the collateral issues however the volume of legal issues began to build up so I attempted to focus on them and stopped looking for references on the collateral questions; later I also got sloppy about the legal references because for anyone who wants them, they are posted and clearly spelled out on either this thread or one of the two prior threads. However this morning, at some point, I will set out the statute references and the legal again in a new Vanity post on the subject.
My own focus has been on the legal issues--I am a lawyer; admitted to practice before the U S Supreme Court; having argued a number of appellate cases. There is broad misunderstanding about the legal and in fact, the legal is very clear specific statute law that spells out exactly what the status is.
I didn't start to accumulate papers on these collateral issues until last week and I have enough that to search for links on these questions is time consuming--and there is no guarantee that I have all of them although I believe I can still find all the references. At some point, I may well do what you suggest and write a complete brief covering both the factual issues and the law.
But I see this as continuing to develop.
If you are asking about the law, it is 8 USCA Sec. 1401(g) (and in prior statutes Sec. 1401(7)). The effective dates of the various modifications is set out in the footnotes--Congress made some of the changes retroactively effective to some degree; however the key change, making the residence change for the single U S Parent from 5 years to 2 years is applicable only to persons born after November, 1986; thus Obama does not qualify.
I ALWAYS do!
Thanks. I stand corrected. My current understanding is that I can't get a certified copy of just anyone's BC, but his/her birth records are available.
"Forge a document? Lie? Of course we/I can. I am a trained Democratic party lawyer."
It's not that unusual when you are not actually practicing and have no intent to resume a practice.
I don’t think the name “Soetero” ever enters the picture until sometime after he is 6 y.o. and living in Indonesia. That is the name of the man in Indonesia his mother married, and Barry was registered in a school there under that name. But he could not have been born under that name unless 18 y.o. “Stanley” Dunham (his mother) had already been involved with Soetero back in 1961. I’ve not seen anything to suggest that could be the case (though with his convoluted case who knows?).
Thank you, thank you, thank you David!
We had last Tuesday off for Canada day.
Have a great July 4th!
I'd guess much the same way my daughter's BC shows me as her father, and gives her last name as the same as mine, even though I didn't meet her mom until she was 3 years old.
Court order, part of the adoption proceedings.
Thanks for the info, you actually posted it to someone else at #498 but I just found it using the search feature of your profile.
You might find this interesting, too..
And immigration status. Therefore, can't we just report this to ICE.gov? We don't need resources for court fights if we report it to ICE for investigation.
dunham in all its forms (barry, barack, etc) yes. The step dad soetero no. They have a two week free trial. Try it.
Remember, his babydaddy was a Harvard Law graduate!
Might have even been some scholarship money come along with that status.
Nobody really cares if he changed his name. Lots of people do that.
We might care about why he changed his name.
A possibility. Barak Obama would have more "street cred" than Barry Dunham, and I could see Barry being worried about loss of status over admitting to it after all this time
