Anyone watching Hannity right now? The reporter who saw the photo/video the Feds have described almost EXACTLY the two men in the photo in post #50. They said one had a white hat and all black while the other had a duffel bag in a blue track suit. When talking about the backpack the man in black/white hat had, they said there was a large, circular shape extending out of the bag.
This article falsely begins with the premise that hidden plot twists actually exist in movies today. Writing has becomes so predictable, every major event in a film can be asssumed or deduced in the first 10 minutes.
There are a few exceptions: Inception. Even after viewing a revealing trailer for the film, you still cannot grasp its depth until watching it in its entirety and putting all the puzzle pieces together.
I submit the problem isn't revealing trailers but film writing with nothing to be revealed.
Furthermore, when working in Illustrator, and specifically commercial print, there is a difference in the appearance of 100K black (CYMK) and "Rich Black."
It's quite possible that if the original was scanned and modified, the color settings in the program/computer they were using made the modified text appear on their screen as the same color when in actuality it was a lighter/darker shade and would appear as such on other machines.
"I just opened a text to PDF document in Adobe Illustrator. There were no layers in the original, just text processing.
In Illustator there was Layer 1 which included a layer Group comprised of a layer for each line of text, some path and clipping path layers, like we see in the Obama doc. All of this separating, grouping and layering was done by the software."
A digitally generated text document (Word, etc.) has meta data that Adobe has to work with when generating a PDF. A scanned document does NOT possess this same data. Apples and oranges. Whatever software is used to scan the document may create these layers too but it WILL NOT create a clipping mask. These are only generated in programs like Photoshop or Illustrator.
If there were "just" layers, I wouldn't be as skeptical. The presence of a clipping mask reveals a poor attempt to flatten the image and cover up manipulation.
I could be wrong though. Has any paper document you've scanned created a clipping mask?
"Try the following: Save off a copy of the exact PDF file the White House has released as Obama's birth certificate this morning. Find yourself a copy of Adobe Illustrator (not Photoshop), and load up the PDF file in Illustrator. Then click on the center of the image of the birth certificate, then right-click on the center of the image, and click Release Clipping Mask. Have fun...
Maybe some freeper can tell us what this means?"
When you open the PDF in Adobe Illustrator and release the clipping mask, several items are separate from the rest of the form, almost like a layer on top of the document. The items are:
1. Date Accepted by Local Reg. 2. Date Accepted by Reg. General 3. The date "APR 25 2011" 4. A "placeholder" for a square graphic above "Apr. 25, 2011" 5> The entire statement of certification and signature in the bottom right hand corner.
In fact, I can isolate those elements and move them anywhere on the document.
PDF conversion of a scanned document usually does not do this...or at least this with specific blocks of important items on a document.
"French women are having their children later than ever..."
Given this snippet it's likely they're mostly ethnic French. The concept of postponing child rearing until the mid-30s is a relatively recent development in Western society - a development/lifestyle the Islamic culture would likely reject.
If the statistics showed that French women were having children at an earlier age, then I might suspect it's purely a product of immigrated Muslims.
"The Church does not have technical solutions to offer and does not claim to interfere in any way in the politics of States."
The Holy Father is not saying the economy should be under the rule of some one-world government. He's saying if we continue with the current, globalized economic model, there will need to be such a system out of necessity to prevent oppression or further dehumanization. He poses no objections to scrapping a globalized economy entirely if there's another system the world is willing to adopt, nor is the Holy Father in a position to dictate which economic model is best.
Sometimes it helps to read more than a sentence of a 100-page document. There's a lot of great stuff in there.
The Founders would totally reject the notion that something like abortion law could justify revolution
Curious to know why you think that, given that the right to life is a liberty the Founding Fathers said could not be denied by a Government in their Declaration of Independence from Britain.
The Founders believed that we are a nation of laws, not men. There is a Law higher than man, and therefore, no man can has the authority to deny the right given him by his Creator. No Government has the authority to permit murder.
However, at our founding, as Mark Levin makes clear in his book, the founders made the slave trade illegal and formed a system of government that, eventually, outlawed the practice.
That's also because they realized they needed the full support of the all the colonies in order for the Revolution to succeed. Banning slavery outright would have stifled that effort. The Revolution was more important, and then the rest could be worked out later.
