    So, when does Orly finally get sanctioned for introducing fraudlent documents into evidence? This is getting ridiculous, she’s finally crossed the “Obama is a Nazi” line, what’s next for her? Methinks she’s hanging out in Israel to avoid arrest when this comes to a head.

    That’s exactly why she is in Tel Aviv. She just torpedoed her dental practice – not that she was a good dentist, anyway.

    She’ll probably broker kidney sales. She’s from Moldova, which is where most of those poor schlubs were. She’s perfect: speaks Russian, and from Moldova.

    Hey, did you see my authentic Kenyan birth certificate? It’s
    here and here.

    Technically speaking, she didn’t introduce fraudulent documents in “evidence.” She made a motion asking for discovery, and attached a photo that she labeled as being “unauthenticated” as her purported reason to need expedited discovery. That is, she told the court she had come into possession of a photo that may or may not be authentic, and she needed the court to allow her to conduct immediate discovery so she could find out whether or not the document is real.

    So no fraud, no sanctions. Stupid motion, but Orly never represented that the document was authentic.

    The real goal of the lawyers all along has been to force discovery. Throwing a questionable document at the court at least theoretically could open that door.

    A poster at Free Republic broke down the Aussie BC and found the signature of the Deputy Registrar is overlaid by the printed “Deputy Registrar.”

    http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2307402/posts?q=1&;page=1401#1444

    The Aussie BC is fake.

    Copy the photo, blow it up in your favorite photo editor and see the signature was written and then “Deputy Registrar” was put on top of the signature.

    The Aussie birth certificate has been confirmed authentic by the person in it, who turned out to be easily located by local journalists:

    everything else up there. Oh I definitely confirm that the birth certificate was mine. That was quite easy to see – my address, even the style of the birth certificate was an old South Australian one.

    So it’s quite easy to identify that it’s mine.

    DINA ROSENDORFF: And looking at the fake Kenyan birth certificate what do you make of it?

    DAVID JEFFREY BOMFORD: It’s definitely a copy of my certificate. It’s so laughable it’s ridiculous.

    Source: http://www.abc.net.au/pm/content/2008/s2646009.htm

    You birthers need to learn that you can’t prove a document to be “fake” by looking for flaws in a JPEG, which are created in the process of scanning and compression for internet display. There’s no such thing as “overlay” on a digital image — no matter what it looks like, in the end there can only be one color per pixel.

    correction — I managed to cut things off in my cut & paste above — the first paragraph in the quoted section should be:

    DAVID JEFFREY BOMFORD: It’s little old me and my mum and everything else up there. Oh I definitely confirm that the birth certificate was mine. That was quite easy to see – my address, even the style of the birth certificate was an old South Australian one.

    So it’s quite easy to identify that it’s mine.

    Self-authentication is a problem. That’s one of the reasons the so-called birthers want to see the “long form” or “vault copy” or “hospital copy” or whatever of BO’s birth registration.

    If the hopital filled out BO’s registration form and an administrator, a doctor and a parent signed the form, then you have multiple witnesses attesting to the veracity of the registration.

    Otherwise you have one guy and his mother swearing, scouts honor, the stuff he published on the net is true.

    Ah, but we have corroboration from the director of the Hawaii State Department of Health. We are not left with self-authentication alone. [I have hesitated to say this, but as far as security features go, Hawaiian birth certificatates ain't much.]

    Self-authentication is a problem.

    The courts have no problem with self-authentication. (See FRE 902.)

    The COLB authenticates itself because it is backed by the State of Hawaii. And there’s no competent evidence suggesting that it is a fake, or that the online digital version differs from the paper version.

    Between President Obama’s Mom knowing that he would be President in 1961 so she submitted a phony BC and calls to newspapers to the forgers putting up a fake Australian BC in 2006, President Obama must have some amazing powers to see the future.

    Basically the new birther plan is to have these so called alternative BC’s come to light to force the President to either release his so called long form or other documentation. They want to bypass the sure legal defeats and still compell some sort of discovery.

    Taitz really is the gift that keeps on giving. A commenter from tRSoL:

    “Even if the supposed Kenyan document released on Sunday is fake, at least Orly tried. We don’t know where she got it, but if her heart is in the right place, and I think it is, I don’t think she would ask the judge for expedited discovery based on something that she hadn’t already had vetted. I noticed that she and Ron Polarik are now acquainted on Facebook. This may mean nothing, but he is one of the leading forensic document experts in the country. Perhaps she already had him and others examine this document. I have a feeling she has had it in her possession for a while and has done just that before releasing it. No one wants it to be a bomb.”

    Good article on the birthers in the Washington Post today…

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/08/03/AR2009080302219.html

    A great quote from the article…

    “That’s what the less crazy birthers have to contend. The alternative scenario — for those who really ought to put their tinfoil hats back on — is that somehow this was all planned back in 1961: “They” diabolically planted these birth announcements 48 years ago, establishing a false record, so that a chosen infant who was actually born in some foreign land — Kenya? Indonesia? Manchuria? — could be groomed, perhaps programmed, and someday installed in the Oval Office. Cue evil-genius laughter.”

    Fukino is the Director of Hawaii’s Department of Health. She does much more than keep records and make copies. Perhaps she would like to stop being distracted by this nonsense, and get back to protecting the health of the public? Perhaps her natural-born citizen comment was less about literal accuracy, and more about sticking it to people wasting her time?

    Her job duties do not require her to determine who is a natural born citizen. Neither did the New Jersey Secretary of State’s, but did you complain about Donofrio’s suit?

    And, ultimately, Fukino is correct: She’s stating the majority opinion on the subject.

    Orly’s response to the article and the debunking information…She is still clueless…Does she think by calling people “brownshirts” she is scoring any points? Misha, doesn’t that offend you? I find it offensive. All of her so called responses have been already refuted.

    Debunking Obama’s thugs in the media

    Recently Obama’s thugs in main stream media came up with this Bomford report in order to stop my efforts in exposing and prosecuting Obama. Though typically I don’t have time to waste on each and every dumb obot, since it got to National TV and my children”s friends called my children, I’ll spend a few minutes to debunk the obots:

    1. Kenya became an independant country in 1963, not 1964. The seal of Kenya was correct.

    2. More then one person had certified copies of this document.

    3. the document was not issued at birth, but rather was a certified copy obatained in1964, when Kenya became independent

    4. The documents from that time would not show Zanzibar, but rather Kenya

    5. Bomford report was created to try to discredit my efforts

    6.lastly, I am not supposed to waste my time and money on this issue, Obama us the one who is supposed to provide evidence of legitimacy

    7. Kenyan BC provides more info than the piece of garbage Obama posted on the n et, which doesn’t have the name of the hospital, name of the doctor or signatures.

    8. Chioumi Fukino and Obama and all their Nazi Brown Shirts in the main stream media need to give it a rest and provide an original hospital BC and the corresponding big thick hospital Birthing file from the Kapiolani hospital. If they don’t have such a file, all of them need to resign immediately or they will be prosecuted for massive fraud and treason to this Nation. (in case you didn’t know, treason carries punishment of life in prison or death penalty).

    But then, you’re well behind the information curve, aren’t you??? Your Aussie nonsense has already gone the war of all good things and little bits and pieces are beginning to surface that tend to add credence to the image Orly “outed” which she – correctly – did not claim was a BC but merely an image of a cerfified copy of birth registration … a real KOLB possibly but one which must be authenticated … and that’s in process as we speak. You’re merely too dumb to realize that.

    Having said all that, whether the man is born in Kenya or HI, those things are merely findings of fact in the upcoming court actions. The real issue remain:

    In Orly’s world, it is. She can drag it out for a couple more years, milk her minions for some more ‘Donations’ and then blame it on the “Brownshirts” when she is AGAIN discredited.

    Heck, this latest episode with the supposed “Kenyan Birth Certificate” is the worst, she doesn’t even have the actual document, she has a photo of it. Disbarrment would be too easy on this huckster.

    JTX, of course he is. He meets the requirements of the US Constitution. He was born on the soil of the US, is over 358, and been in the US for 14 years. President Obama is the president for the next 3.5 and hopefully 7.5 years. And most Americans don’t have an issue with him.

    You have to stop reading Orly’s blog. Of course she thinks that her copy is real. It is because she is stupid. She submits a picture of a document that did not make any sense and expects that intelligent people would believe it. In her filing she claimed that she never had the actual document. So she was relying on a picture. And unless the infamous Polarik was available to authenticate images of documents, she was in trouble. However even Polarik smelled a rat and claimed that this so called Kenyan BC was a forgery.

    “In the Research 2000 poll, only 7 percent of Democrats have doubts about Barack Obama’s origins. That compares, in the Rasmussen poll, to 26 percent of Republicans who had doubts about George Bush’s role in 9/11, and 43 percent who had doubts about whether the CIA had advanced knowledge of the attacks. Trutherism is pathetically widespread — somewhat more so than birtherism — and is also somewhat more “bipartisan” than its counterpart.”

    True per Constitution, Congress qualifies the President and certifies the election results.

    And having the status of your birth be governed by the BNA has no effect on the birthright citizenship status.

    Moreover, if as is suggested, he [LaFayette ] was born to the advantages of a double allegiance, upon attaining his majority he exercised the right which was his of electing the government to which he would give allegiance, and that election related back to the time of his birth.

    Congress looked at this a while ago, found that it could to grant these rights to the Supreme Court

    Resolved That the two Houses of the Forty fourth Congress having counted the votes cast for President ana Vice President of the United States and having declared Rutherford B Hayes to be elected President and William A Wheeler to be elected Vice President there is no power in any subsequent Congress to reverse that declaration nor can any such power be exercised by the courts of the United States or any other tribunal that Congress can create under the Constitution.

    The real issue is the legal eligibility of the man in question to hold the office he now occupies. It’s too bad that almost no one in this hast-speech-filled blog is bright enough to realize that.

    “Hast-speech-filled blog”? You mean that there’s a lot of use of the antiquated second person-inflected form of “have”?

    According to Phil over at tROSL, Jerome Corsi and WND are now claiming that the COLB is authentic.

    http://mediamatters.org/mmtv/200908030036

    Interesting. It is difficult to believe anything that they say since they have made some contradictory statements regarding this issue so far….

    “WorldNetDaily’s Jerome Corsi was on G. Gorden Liddy’s radio show en route to verifying the Kenyan document’s authenticity…”

    However yesterday Farah and WND wrote a column talking about why he doubts the authenticity of the Kenyan BC…a quote from that article states the following…

    “No one at WND – not me, not Jerome Corsi, not any columnists, not any reporters – have defended the authenticity of the Kenyan birth certificate. No one here has made a judgment that it is real. What we did was report a fact – that California attorney Orly Taitz has filed a motion in federal court to determine its authenticity.”

    http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=105902

    And last year WND stated the following about President Obama’s HI COLB…

    “A separate WND investigation into Obama’s certification of live birth utilizing forgery experts also found the document to be authentic. The investigation also revealed methods used by some of the bloggers to determine the document was fake involved forgeries, in that a few bloggers added text and images to the certificate scan that weren’t originally there.”

    http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=73214

    Farah states this in one article…He doesn’t believe that the COLB is a forgery…

    “Yes, it is true that I do not believe that document to be a forgery and WND has reported that. But that “certification of live birth” proves nothing about Obama’s eligibility, because it was issued for births that took place outside the country”

    http://www.wnd.com/index.php/index.php?pageId=104163

    But in another WND/western center of journalism article he states the following…

    “In discussing the Certification of Live Birth that the Obama campaign claims was posted on the web, Orly Taitz also asserts that “Hawaii has statute 338 that allows foreign-born children of Hawaiian residents to get Hawaiian birth certificates.” What she is referring to here is the 1982 amendment of the vital records law. Under Act 182 H.B. NO. 3016-82, state policies and procedures could accommodate even “children born out of State” (this is the actual language of Act 182) with an original birth certificate on record. But though Act 182 does provide children born out of state with a birth certificate it does not provide them with birth certificates that say that these children were born in Hawaii or at a specific location in Hawaii. Consequently these birth certificates cannot engender Certifications of Live Birth which state that the subject was born in Honolulu, as the purported Obama Certification of Live Birth does. So if the Obama Certification of Live Birth was not forged, it could not have been engendered by an Act 182-authorized birth certificate for “children born out of state”. And if it was forged, the false information on it was not based on anything that could be on an Act-182 authorized birth certificate. So Orly Taitz’ assertion that “Hawaii has statute 338 that allows foreign-born children of Hawaiian residents to get Hawaiian birth certificates” is irrelevant.”

    So how can you really believe what WND states when they are so confused that they are writing contradictory articles.

    And over at Free Republic, the usual lies and supposed secret inside information and people claiming to have similar documents, of course with no real proof…

    WND picks the most convenient lie at the time. In this case, “But that “certification of live birth” proves nothing about Obama’s eligibility, because it was issued for births that took place outside the country”

    Let WND come up with a legal COLB for someone born in 1961 who was born out of the country that says they were born in Hawaii.

    Curious why this site no longer comes up in my auto Google daily search….

    Anyway – was the Kenyan cert based on the Aussie cert or the other way around?

    Seems that – from The Right Side of Life:
    Richard Bomford is listed as the domain holder for Bomford.net where this David Jeffrey Bomford Certification of Registration was found.

    The problem is that Richard Bamford was just involved in a massive fraud case adjudicated in Australian on July 10th of this year.

    Bamford seems to go by the name Bomford.

    Also GIM International lists Richard Bomford as a GIS expert. It is my understanding that GIS information experts have software to produce maps and edit images of such quality, that forging a BC would be child’s play.

    So the Bomford could be the fake; as its provenance is in doubt.

    As far as I know, date stamps on images can also be faked. So that proves nothing. So can lead codes and other identifying facts.

    There are a number of inconsistencies in the Bomford and Kenyan BCs. On the Bomford there is no tilting of the typed line at the bottom of the page, on the Kenyan there is. Only an expert could avoid the tilting problem when typing on the final inch of a single page of paper. Yet the Bomford has raised capitals, which often occur when typing fast on a typewritter and not fully depressing the capital shift key. The Kenyan does not have this problem.

    The currency in Kenya was shillings. “d” in English currency means pence or cents. The Aussie has a seal different from the crest; the Kenyan seal is indiscernable. Both have the capital O instead of the zero for the number Zero and the capital O. Both seem to use the same typewriter font. Its a 25 years not a 26, because the loop for the 5 is larger not small and squat like the six.
    ———–

    From all the forgeries I’ve seen online lately – I would say people are creating them as fast as they can in order to keep anything from being authenticated. Wouldn’t seem helpful for the ‘birthers’ to do this, but might be advantageous for those that are a bit uneasy that an authentic BC just might surface.

    This is a LIE that birthers have been spreading round the web. Richard Bomford is a public offical based in Canberra. Richard Bamford is a Company Director based in Sydney.

    “Also GIM International lists Richard Bomford as a GIS expert”

    This may or may not be true – but I for one can’t make much sense of that website. A search brings up an untidy version of his address but drilling down gets no clear info.

    There were actually two wars fought so we wouldn’t be governed by British law. In the Revolutionary war, we shed the British government. In the war of 1812, one of the principle causes was the impressment of “natural-born subjects” of England into the British Navy. As Lynch v. Clarke pointed out, the newspapers and diplomatic communications on this point were about the birthplace of those impressed – never about the parent’s citizenship.

    Expelliarmus August 5, 2009 at 11:03 am #

    Sally, I would suggest that you check your facts before reposting the garbage that appears on RSOL. The “Richard Bamford” involved in the fraud is from Sydney, in New South Wales. The “Richard Bomford” who owns the bomford.net domain (and is related to to David Jeffrey Bomford) lists an address in OConner, ACT Australia (a suburb of Canberra), about 300km away. Absolutely no evidence that “Bamford” and “Bomford” have any connection.

    A search at http://www.whitepages.com.au/wp/resSearch.do for the surname “Bamford” yields 496 results, of which 62 have a first initial “R”. In contrast, there are only 117 individuals in Australia named “Bomford”, only 13 of whom have the first initial “R”.

    Bob August 5, 2009 at 11:14 am #

    As with many birfer assertions, possibility of fraud is not proof of fraud. The Bamford is Bomford claim is about as plausible as the Obama is a Connecticut vampire one.

    And as you’ve conceded, there are many differences between the Australian and Kenyan birth certificates. The origins of the Australian one are known, however, and there is someone affirmatively saying it is their birth certificate.

    The Kenyan one, on the other hand, is an orphan document of unknown origin that contains many possible errors or anachronisms.

    Any birth certificates or other documents are merely items of fact in the whole chain of proof that will eventually come out in court.

    So you keep claiming but there are just not many court filings left since most of them have now been rejected by the courts based on Constitutional issues such as lack of standing.
    The few remaining are quickly dwindling. Keyes v Obama will be denied in a month or so and Kerchner’s will move to SCOTUS to be denied cert once the court will reject its second amended complaint and accept a motion to dismiss.

    Photo 3: The document crumpled into a ball, to throw away.

    Photo 4: The document straightened back out, writen over it “YOU’VE BEEN PUNK’D” on it.

    Andy Martin is on the Case of the Forged Birth Certficate.

    And he already has a couple of tantalizing theories. One is that it might be a clandestine (Mossad?) operation:

    My second theory as to who forged the KBC is more sinister. But based on Mr. Taitz’ provenance, and my contacts with various intelligence agencies, I can see another potential source of the forged KBC.

    But, according to dear old Andy, a far more likely possibility is that Obama forged the birth certificate himself!

    I suspect the KBC may be a forgery that was created by Obama himself, as part of his admissions package to Occidental College. Obama forged the KBC to falsely claim Kenyan birth as part of his affirmative action’ application to Occidental. That is a very real explanation for the KBC. The KBC may also explain why Obama has shrouded his college records in secrecy; he should now release all of them to the public.

    Yes, it’s obvious that affirmative action for plain old Black people is unheard of. But Black people of Kenyan birth, now that’s the clincher.

    Never mind that there’s no evidence that Obama got into Occidental pursuant to an affirmative action policy. We may take it as a given that he owes his success to affirmative action simply because he’s Black.

    All of this raises the salient question: is it possible for anyone to be stupider than Andy Martin?

    Once, last year, I was trying to figure out a complex issue of British insurance law and looked at one of the leading treatises on the subject. I was chagrined after I cited the case that it referred to as controlling on the issue when I learned that it was one from New South Wales and had been superceded by one from a British court.

    I also learned that you can’t simply enter a citation into Lexis like you can for US cases, since British cases recycle their case numbers (according to our librarian).

    Suffice it to say that I now understand why the British lawyers on this case could charge the equivalent of $1,600/hour. But, then again, it was cheaper to have me research something, be completely wrong and try again than to have them look at something once and get it completely right. :)

    Doc, our friends at the wonderful site “oil for immigration” addressed the WND discrediting of the Lucas Smith so called Kenyan BC in the following article as a type of side by side comparison…Smith’s responses were hilarious to say the least…

    http://www.oilforimmigration.org/facts/?p=3153

    WND Argument #1

    1. Kenyan news sources have called into question the use of “Coast Province” or “Coast Provincial” as a correct reference to the official name of the Mombasa general public hospital in 1961, citing Professor Dan Branch of the University of Warwick who noted that the term “Coast Province” was not used in the early 1960s when Kenyan provinces were typically referred to as “regions.”

    Lucas answer back to WND argument #1

    Lucas disproves this claim by citing a report found in Google Books called “The Annual Report on The Colony and Protectorate of Kenya” published in 1960. On page 60 of the report, the name of a hospital called “Coast Province General Hospital” is found. (See the video of this search conducted and cited in real-time using Google Books online)

    Or another one…

    WND Argument #4

    The dates on the document are formatted in U.S. style, listing in order the month, day and year; this is not the British format which typically follows the order of day, month and year.

    Lucas answer back to WND argument #4

    Kenya uses both date formats, i.e., dd/mm/yyyy and mm/dd/yyyy.

    Also, Repubx.com has also noted that the MM/DD/YYYY is actually referred to as Universal Time format (UTC), or a time/date format called UTC. The use of this format (UTC) did not become mainstream until after computers were common. Software programs were often coming up with different date stamp formats, so this standard, (UTC), was devised to bridge the gap. You’ll notice that many websites and software products and/or web applications now use the UTC format.

    Of course he doesn’t source his information in trying to discredit WND. It is funny to see WND as the side you would actually think is telling the truth…

    That’s an awful lot of nonsense to put in so small a space. UTC stands for Coordinated Universal Time (not Universal Time format), and indeed it is not a format. It is a time standard that replaced Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) in 1972. Time formatting standards are promulgated by the International Standards Organization (ISO), and MM/DD/YYYY is not the ISO standard.

    Decent software and web applications adapt themselves to the local workstation setting, representing the time according to local conventions.
