(CNN) The White House released President Obamas original birth certificate Wednesday.
The surprise release follows recent and sustained remarks by businessman Donald Trump, among others, that raised doubts as to whether the president was born in the United States.
There is most definitely something really fishy about the date stamp in blocks 20 and 22. The “1” in 1961 is perfect, and looks like it has been inserted over what was there before.
I don’t think that a military doctor who refuses deployment to a combat zone is a “hero”. The heroes are the guys who went.
I think what you're seeing is a sign of an image that has been pasted together from multiple "levels."
Whoa, butter!! Where can we find more about this poor little baby girl and her date and time of birth?
I clicked on the document, but I don’t know what it is telling me. Why is (for an example) a single “R” not redacted in the version you posted?
1. Birth certificate typed by bored hospital worker with a weak pinky as shown by the sloppy shift key usage. :-)
2. Birth certificate accepted by city/county/island/state registrar (locally it is by the county, but Hawaii is a small state so I don't know who does the actual work) who stamp and sign it.
3. After a pile are received they are bound into an official book for storage.
4. Either at time of binding or later they are microfilmed for easier access. Microfilms are both smaller and can be easily duplicated rather than having to go back to the book and make another copy. (My current birth certificate came from a microfilm.)
5. Sometime later old records are pulled out and computerized for the short form records.
6. After much political pressure old microfilm is pulled from storage, printed on modern security paper and sent to Obama.
7. White House staff scan birth certificate (adding unsharp masking to create haloing around type and pixelation), create PDF file and distribute it.
I don't know if the paper copy still exists or if the microfilm becomes the official copy. I also don't know if they even have the film or if that has been digitized for even easier backup and storage.
He stood up for his oath, knowing that he risked losing all rank, pension, etc.
And Tim Adams was clearly a liar, given today’s events.
Yes. Some of us have wondered why the left-wing media were giving Trump so much publicity over this. One theory was that he was working for Hillary. Another that he would run as an Independent to split the Republican vote. Now, a third theory is that Trump was actually working for Obama. They had the forged long-form COLB ready, and they wanted to announce it with trumpets. And then Trump could help them by admitting he was wrong.
Just an FYI, and I have no idea how I came to that thought when I awoke this morning!
Because when the PDF was created, some information (Presumably lightly typed characters) were interpreted as part of the background security paper and not as the foreground birth information. Because of this, when the PDF was compressed in order to make it consumable by the general public, it reduced the size of that background image. Because the characters were considered ‘part’ of the large background image, they were compressed to the same extent as the background, leading to a fuzziness which is traditionally associated with compression.
Any person can verify this by opening the PDF in a vector editing program (such as Illustrator) and delete the background layer. All text that appears fuzzy appears in that background layer, including the checkboxes and the final number 1 in the top right hand side of the COLB.

Indeed. Load the WH PDF in Illustrator (I used CS2), and release clipping masks (a few of them) ... Not sure if Acrobat Pro creates PDFs like this, but honestly, it really DOES appear this PDF was “worked on”. Let’s see the real thing.. and BTW, this is *STILL* just a COLB, not a certified Birth Certificate long form.. if this was what it claims to be it’d have birth weight, legnth and delivering Physician listed.
Thanks for posting that. I admit that it is odd. I really can’t explain it and especially why some letters are there while most are haloed.
Please look at the link I provided. I zoomed in 800% to compare the S in Stanley, then scroll over to the S in Student.
Is is me or are they different fonts. Tell me what you see, please.
Exactly why will “birthers” be disappointed? It’s all any of us have asked. Oh, and of course we wanted to be sure he was eligible to be president—IAW the Constitution.
But I’m forgetting how ahead and above the rest of us you and your like thinkers are on this Constitutional issue.
And your post is all you have to say, assuming this document is credible, given what ever kind of political stunt our Marxist idiot was trying to pull off?
Personally, I hope this document is the real McCoy. Reason: Now he can prosecuted for treason. Couldn’t go there if he was never a US citizen. So, you see my friend, you must be careful what you hope for.
And Tim Adams was clearly a liar, given today’s events.
My guess is that they are marks to indicate how the data should be coded when it was entered into the database.
They could have been processed in alphabetical order.
I was posting to mel, who is engaging in personal battles while bemoaning them at the same time.
That’s what i said!! This belonged to to a dead person!!!
If that certificate was issued a day *AFTER* 0bamao was born, then why does it have a *LOWER* sequence number, 61-10637 ??
The sequence number on Obamao’s day-earlier COLB is 61-10641.
I don’t think a real leader would have ever let the issue cause any soldier to be stuck in prison..PERIOD! Obama is a narcissistic clown. He could have released whatever this is years ago and stopped all the speculation and division in the country. He truly is a petulant child and thug and he is not fit for the highest office in this land nor to head our great military...no matter where he was actually born.
I noticed this, too, and mentioned - along with other things - in post #562, fyi.
I apologize, it is just nutty, get a thread over 70 or so and for sure it will digress into mudslinging.
Its the same name on the Nordyke BC, printed in 1966 for the 1961 birth.
Mrs. Prince of Space
Rush talking about this now!
Sounds like he is reading our thread....or FReepers are emailing him our suspicions!!
That’s just technical mumbo jumbo meant to confuse the birthers. You’re so obvious. /s
No matter how detailed and logical your explanations are, nothing will ever satisfy them. But you’re doing a good job. I’m with you so far.
The State of Hawaii doesn’t consider just a signature to be valid certification. The State of Hawaii requires the registrar’s signature AND a raised seal.
I’m sorry; C. I misunderstood your post. Thanks for your input; I appreciate it.
Hell, I got accused of actually being the one who released the bogus document! This kind of power only comes once in a lifetime, I’m going to bask in the glory while I can.
Rush just read the quotation marked material on the air...and the information (Including the Ukelele comment) from the document source who stated it was fake.
George Mason, delegate from Virginia to the U.S. Constitutional Convention, a "Father of the Bill of Rights" said in the Richmond Convention (debate on the ratification) on Thursday, June 19, 1788 - "The common law of England is not the common law of these States."
The life of George Mason, 1725-1792 (page 431).
The Constitution wasn't intended to be a dictionary. Many things in the Constitution were not defined.
"The English common law provided that an alien naturalized is to all intents and purposes a natural born subject. Co. Litt. 129 (quoted and cited in Rhodes, 27 F.Cass. at 790). With such recognition, a naturalized citizen would have been eligible to be President of the new Republic."
If we were going by English law, then Arnold Schwarzenegger would be POTUS eligible.
Chief Justice Marshall, Chief Justice Waite, Justice Story and the House of Representatives that debated the issue of citizenship leading to the 14th Amendment (in particular framer Bingham) on who a "natural born Citizen" is were all in agreement. A natural born Citizen is one born in sovereign territory, to parents (plural) who owe no allegiance to another country.
Barry was born owing allegiance to the crown of her majesty the Queen of England...inherited by birthright from his foreign father.
Barry was a multinational. Citizens can be multinationals (although, the state dept talks of the perils of such), but multinationals and natural born Citizens are mutually exclusive terms.
Then you weren't listening. I am a birther and I have repeatedly said this issue isn't about the bc, and any release of it would be meaningless.
The issue has always been about have a NON-citizen father! And this long form bc states exactly that: Born Kenya-East Africa!!! This just released bc reinforces what we birthers have been consistently saying: Obama is NOT eligible because his father wasn't a citizen!!! Wake up for God's sake.
Rush just gave the instruction on the air.....;~)
I have said all along that the only way we can know what is real and what is not is for all of his records to be shown, together with the embedded transaction logs that would show if the files had been tampered with.
I still say that.
And I have very, very good reasons to say that: because the HDOH and Selective Service Administration have both already tampered with their records for Obama’s sake, the Social Security Administration has acknowledged that the SSN Obama used on his last tax return was never issued to him, and somebody at the Passport Office disabled security protocols in order to allow Obama’s passport file to be breached 3 different times (the latest of which was shortly after the original exif data said the Factcheck COLB photos were taken).
That’s just the records tampering and manipulation that has been documentably done. There are a multitude of laws and rules they’ve broken as well.
All good reasons to require the history of the records to be audited. Which I have been saying all along.

It was Dr. Kenneth Ablow...(the co-author of Beck’s most recent book). He is a psychiatrist...he said (paraphrasing here) that originally he thought the release/Obama commentary would be the end...but...as he sat and watched Obama speak, it raised more questions with him (than gave answers).
In the 60’s I believe Race was listed as “color” or “Negro” on public forms. Just as white was Caucasian.
But African wasn’t a race and still isn’t a race. It’s a country.
