Bogus WND Detective raises bogus issue

Tabloid web site WorldNetDaily now presents us with a report from an alleged detective, Takeyuki Irei (a search of Hawaii’s professional licenses yields no one named Takeyuki Irei). Mr. Takeyuki’s shtick is a fake Hawaiian birth certificate from 2010 that supposedly shows Barack Obama’s actual place of birth in Kenya. Here’s the image from a website called the “Aloha Reporter”.

 

Fake birth certificate

I examined this fake before in June of 2010 in my article: It’s raining fake birth certificates, writing:

This is what I would call a “birther fantasy” certificate. It encapsulates the mythology of Barack Obama born in Africa, and registered by the statement of his grandmother. This is the kind of certificate that was claimed to be possible in some of the birther lawsuits, such as Keyes v Bowen and by birther attorneys like Paul Jensen.

My original article details numerous problems with this document, the most glaring error being the citation of HRS 338-17.8, a law that wouldn’t exist until two decades later. I have been told, although I cannot personally verify, that this particular certificate was created to embarrass the birthers. Loren reports further evidence of the fakery on the Barackryphal web site.

The WND article says:

A private investigator claims employees of the state Department of Health forged three Hawaiian birth certificates for Barack Obama to “screw with birthers.”

Takeyuki Irei told WND one document placed the birth at Kapiolani hospital, another at Queens Medical Center and a third in Kenya.

So this was not an attempt to hide Obama’s origins, just a nasty trick on the birthers? Takeyuki is correct on one point, the birth certificate shown in the article is a forgery, and it was probably created to screw with the birthers, and there is even a remote chance that a Department of Health employee made it. However, the “detective” fails to give one essential piece of information, without which everything he claims is worthless: how does he know? Also where is this supposed version showing Queens hospital? The dog ate it (see WND article for equally silly excuse).

All this proves is what we have long known, WorldNetDaily has no problem packaging crank theories as “news.”

    I wonder if there is any such “birth certificate” that predates the release of the Obama COLB and has the time of birth as “7:24 pm”. It’s funny how these only popped up once Obama gave his full birth date details.

    And not one forger has yet dared to simply put in another date – which would be more consistent with claims of “Obama’s BC’s are forgeries” if you really think about it. Somehow they all fear that having a different date/time will have the birthers think “forgery!” right away. But if I were to forge such a document, I’d make sure it stands out by showing as much of the real BC to be different. After all, so far no forgery has anything “worth hiding” to show except a foreign birthplace which has been thoroughly debunked by now.

    It also makes you wonder why the birfers don’t jump on “Negro – African” – aren’t they claiming “African” was not a race? Then what the #?ߧ$ is “Negro – African” supposed to mean?

    PS. In case it wasn’t mentioned in the original discussion, I think the two first signatures clearly come from the same hand (then again I’m not a signature expert).

    PPS. If I really were to forge an Obama BC, I’d add at least these spicy bits to make it stand out:

    (1) Date and time a bit different (like August 1st, 6:21 am)

    (2) Lists father as “unknown”

    (3) Has box for “Twins, 1st child” checked.

    and then watch the conspiracy theories unfold from there. 😉

    Back on April 30. Loren of Barackryphal tracked back the original birth certificate used as a template for the Blaine Document forgery. http://barackryphal.blogspot.com/2011/04/provenance-of-blaine-birth-certificate.html

    Needless to say, it shows the sheer fictionality of Corsi’s claims that either Obama’s original was copied from it, it was copied from Obama’s original, or they were both copied from the same source. It also shows how bad both Corsi and this “Private Investigator” are at researching, since they both seem to think the Blaine Document first appeared in March 2010 on the Aloha Reporter website. It was making the rounds back in October 2009, first by Orly (who believed it, of course) and then by The Post and Email (who, ironically, debunked it as a forgery).

    I also liked how Corsi’s comparison of the markings was cited to some guy on Facebook! Obviously an impeccable source for valid document analysis.

    I agree with Lame Cherry, that the documents we see were messed with to keep the birthers busy but were NOT messed with insofar as content. Yes barry got registered, and that is what the Kenya registration shows and even though it lists a law which was added later about registering foreign borns, THAT practice was used documentedly since 1904; that notation could have just been typed on at a later date, it does not disqualify the form. LC, and I agree, believes it is legit. It has been twiddled with by lifting letters and layering and so forth, just to distract. Those Hawaiian officials are always parsing words, trying to stay within the boundaries of plausible deniability or word twist to misconstrue, but they wouldn’t do that if they were just going to put out a totally fraudulent document from soup to nuts, which is firing squad treason. No, they’re just “messin” with the birthers, but only within a strict construct, such that when all is said and done, the real piece of paper says what the online image said, but they made birthers and forensics experts waste a ton of hours analyzing how they chopped it apart. Obama and his groinmen are tittering at the analysis. Yes he was born in Kenya and registered in Hawaii and people were paid off.

    “I have a scenario which Hawaiian PI Takeyuki Irei should have read here as he and Jerome Corsi would know what they are looking at, instead of three forgeries meant to screw with Birthers.

    Thee original which is above is thee Obama record of birth as this blog stated from day one. What the PI and others see as a disqualification in a misspelled Gram Dunham name is in reality explained as this blog broke this story.
    Gram Dunham fearing that the lying multi wived Barack sr. in hauling Stan Ann to Africa was going to forever bury her into the bush. Gram was an astute old sleeping her way to the top gal, and it might have been Frank Marshall Davis counselling, but in order to save her daughter Mad Dunham created an anchor baby by OVER THE PHONE telling a weepers tale to the register in Hawaii, who gladly registered Barack jr. legally as born in Kenya as the reason for the delayed filing.

    There was either a phone call or a telegram with the exact time of birth obtained by Madelyn who then registered Barry as she never trusted senior Obama.

    http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-lW9iLsRl5ck/TcdED10HkuI/AAAAAAAAICQ/RNpPkUKEoXA/s400/signatures.jpg
    This blog exclusively noted the White House abstract was signed with the same felt tip pen, which there were not felt tip pens in 1961 America nor the world. The handwriting looks the same, and this is vital, as you will NOTICE THAT THE SAME PEN, SAME WRITING STYLE appear in the Gram Dunham original.
    The register filing this had no idea how to spell Madelyn or Madlyn, or, more to the point was nervous in filing this in forging people’s names that being in a hurry, they made a mistake in spelling the name.

    Takeyuki Irei PI states there were 3 birth records floating about and he had one which mirrored the Obama abstract just released which has been manipulated in being filled out at two different times.

    Bear with me as we lay this bare, AS ALL THREE of these forgeries are real, and while Obama is screwing with Americans in this, these documents were not created to screw with Birthers as the Magnum PI has concluded.

    Recall now the exclusives of this blog in laying this out, that there are THREE periods in B. Hussein Obama’s life.

    His birth in Kenya, created the above original filing filled out completely by the register.

    Next, Stan Ann divorced Barack sr. in a messy proceeding where she accused him of being a wife beater. Sr. could have cared less about Barry, unless he was an anchor baby to keep him in America as he was desperate to escape deportation.
    It is well known that Sr. was mounting another woman in trying to marry her so he would not be deported.

    Stan Ann in playing this game, was not going to lose this welfare ticket child in Barry. So she once again went to this crooked registration system, and while I do not know if she screwed the guy for it or Gram bribed them again, but this created the second birth certificate which placed Barry as born at one of the Hawaiian hospitals.

    We now come to the disposable Obama as Lolo Soetoro was apparently trying to make wife out of this self centered sex pervert Stan Ann in slapping her around for disobeying the 3rd world wife roles.
    She hooked up with the lesbian maid, and dumped Barry back into Hawaii………..

    This is where thing became interesting as Stan Ann was working for the State Department at the Embassy. It appears somehow that birth document number two was either misplaced into the lepper colony files as Magnum PI states these files are kept, or the registration office being checked by the federal government knew this second document fraud would not hold up, as Barry Obama had been adopted by Lolo Soetoro at Stan Ann’s behest.
    Digging would have found Barry Soetoro was born in Kenya, was not an American to begin with, and there was not in any way in 1971 that this bastard of the third world was going to be let back into these United States.

    So document number three was manufactured with the second hospital as hospital number one was in the position that they if asked were not going to join in a felony fraud for some 3rd world runs like a duck sociopath.

    As exclusive, this completely explains the reason sister Mya thought Obama was born someplace else in her time, because that is the cover lie which was told to get Barry back into America……….and hospital one was from an earlier lie, and the original document was……..well for all one knows as

    “Gram Mad was a hot looking chic yet back in 1961 maybe she took it out in trade too in the first certified fraud for Barry Dunham Obama Soetoro.

    All three of these documents are real. They are all criminal forgeries created for different times in Obama’s global hopping existence.

    Now you know what has taken place, and the web of Obama lies is catching that smug bastard more each day, even if he thinks he has this buried like Watergate.

    The Birthers are absolutely correct in all of this. All stories match the Birther charges and I hope
    Takeyuki Irei PI works this for his fortune he desired……..would be nice if he bought me a Hawaiian ranch in being Inspired to put this all into scenario for the children.”

    No, LC is incorrect on this. There was an online BC floating around, which someone then made blank by putting white areas over the written/typed text, and that too was floating around online. That blank was what was used to create the Blaine document LC is referring to as the “original.” It is something someone did from an online document recently — very well could have been someone in Hawaii — but it was not from 1961.

    I can confirm that, as I’ve exchanged emails with the guy who made it. And like ANT Pogo wrote above, it was made from a blanked-out certificate that was made from the Snarkybytes certificate, as I detail here:

    As has been noted elsewhere, Hawaii has no record of a private investigator named Takeyuki Irei. You can search by first name, last name, or full name here:

    http://pvl.ehawaii.gov/pvlsearch/app

    Hawaii calls them “private detectives,” not private investigators.

    Of course, the birthers will undoubtedly claim that “Takeyuki Irei” is a pseudonym because he fears reprisal by Obama’s thugs.

    I think the WND people are the most despicable of the birthers. Orly and her gang are handicapped by delusion and paranoia. The Post and Email people and their ilk are blinded by bigotry and hatred. But Farah and his cohorts are not the buffoons that other birthers are. They know very well that there is not an ounce of truth at all to this birther BS—including this Blaine birth certificate—but they peddle it as truth nonetheless. They succeeded in playing Donald Trump for the fool and are now desperately trying to stay in the “birther” game until their book comes out.

    I don’t think so, but you’re dealing with an awfully narrow window of time there. Virtually nobody expressed any doubt about Obama’s birth or eligibility prior to June 9, 2008. That’s the date that the Birther rumors suddenly tipped into popularity, and then the COLB was released on June 12.

    Just dumb.

    Lame Cherry is saying that the law was added later. This is problematic for many reasons. First, why would someone type this 21 years or more later than the law was passed? Second, where would they get the information if it wasn’t on the original? Third, why would they put such an explanation in a block reserved for something else. Lame Cherry says that the practice of registering out of state children was documented since 1904. What this probably references is the fraudulent Sun Yat-Sen Certificate of Hawaiian birth — obtained by fraud, not by policy. See my article Hawaiian Birth Certificate: It’s a fraud!

    However, there are other proofs that it’s a fake. Look at the time of birth. The “m” in the Time of Birth is typewritten, but authentic forms have the “M” pre-printed.
