Curious birth certificate image in ADP filing

I mentioned before the amicus brief filed by the Alabama Democratic Party in the McInnish case. While I read the argument, I the version I linked to didn’t have some attached exhibits. Birthers have been looking at the longer version, and lit upon the copy of the President’s birth certificate included. Following the Birther Axiom of Equivalence (BAE):

Anything odd = Fraud

They have made a big deal out of it. I’ll give a snap just to show you the odd background pattern:

image

It looks at first glance to me a feature of the security paper, creating a pattern when copied; however, I don’t know why it hasn’t been seen before. I tried a few things and couldn’t get any pattern to show myself. Still, it seems most likely security paper working as designed. What else could it be?

The birther objection is that in this obviously multi-generally process black and white version, the subtle registrar’s seal that can be coaxed algorithmically out of the White House PDF, is not at all visible. Other birthers count “three versions” of the certificate now, and say “multiple = fraud.”

The certificate itself is the April 25, 2011 certificate, and one can tell that it’s from the same original as the White House PDF because of the identical relative placement of the date stamp and the registrar’s signature stamp on the bottom.

This the same silliness that we saw when the Mississippi Democratic Party submitted a copy of the White House PDF in a brief, and the birthers went ape-dip about the artifacts being different after it was reprocessed for the court filing.

Birthers going ape-dip over the image:

    The document has been processed with ABBYY, probably to add the background watermark. ABBYY has the additional problem that it tries to recover the original structure of the document and thus identifies boxes, text, leading to about 1500 objects being created (IIRC). More when I present my full analysis.

    The question is: what does the document at Pacer show? The diamond pattern or the pattern shown in the copy obtained from the Democratic Party?

    Also, there are arguments that the background on this is larger than the one on the Whitehouse but the whitehouse PDF does crop the picture slightly and when this cropping is removed, the resulting picture looks exactly like the one in the latest document. So the question has become:

    1. Did Ragsdale submit the copy of the birth certificate as sent to the Whitehouse by the DOH of Hawaii?
    2. Did Ragsdale send a B&W copy which was not obtained from the whitehouse PDF?
    3. Did Ragsdale send a B&W copy which was recovered from the whitehouse PDF?

    As to the background. So far I have no idea what happened here but it would make sense to do experiments with ABBYY

    More later.

    You would almost think someone were punking the Birthers again. ;)

    Doc, did you see the version of the ADP filing that Pixel Patriot obtained? The LFBC exhibit in that one appears more normal and looks like what you would expect a B&W scan of a color printout of the LFBC from the White House web site would look like.

    We don’t know the source for either document, the one posted by Jack Ryan at SCRIBD or the one obtained by Pixel Patriot. If someone wants to throw away about $15 you can download the documents from the Alacourt system.

    The idea that someone went out of their way to create a new document when all the ADP had to do was print out a copy of the LFBC from WhiteHouse.gov is absurd. That is exactly why the Birthers will buy into the theory.

    The attached document is not just a printout of the PDF found on the Whitehouse website I believe… Actually I stand corrected they do appear to be quite similar.

    So there go my scenarios.

    I think the diamond effect in the image is most likely a result of a Moire pattern that is a result an interaction between the printed copy and the particular scanner that was used. If you Google “Moire” and “scanner” you will see this is common and that some scanners have a descreen to reduce or eliminate this problem.

    PaulG May 3, 2013 at 3:42 pm #

    If the copy is a slightly shrunken version of the original that would support the moire effect and well as the larger margins.

    Has anybody tried faxing a document on security paper? You can get weird effects that way.

    What a total Obot red herring!

    Mr. C’s latest LFCOLB offering appeared only in the “Friends of the Fogbow” edition. It has the weird wobbly background and the image is fractured into hundreds of layers, each with single characters, parts of words or entire words.

    To the contrary, the B&W LFCOLB image that was actually filed by the Alabama Democrat Party (contained within its amicus curiae brief) has a uniform gray, mottled background totally different from the one that Mr. C is trying to confuse you with.

    Moreover, the total LFCOLB image in this filed copy is contained as a single B & W bitmap image embedded within the PDF document.

    The entire image is entirely binary (black on white). However my attempt to verify the black color as “true black” was unsuccessful.

    This is just more solid proof that the dishonest Fogbow lawyers (and their eager accomplice Mr. C) are still up to their old tricks.

    This is also manifest proof of their growing desperation.

    After all they have nothing to offer which could validate Obama’s birth records.

    Letters of Verification

    Letters of verification may be issued in lieu of certified copies (HRS 338-14.3). This document verifies the existence of a birth/death/civil union/marriage/divorce certificate on file with the Department of Health and any other information that the applicant provides to be verified relating to the vital event. (For example, that a certain named individual was born on a certain date at a certain place.) The verification process will not, however, disclose information about the vital event contained within the certificate that is unknown to and not provided by the applicant in the request.

    Ah, I see what you are saying. Yes, the letter of verification may be sufficient in court but it may fail the self-authenticating documents or even hearsay.

    Hearsay does not apply to:

    Public Records of Vital Statistics. A record of a birth, death, or marriage, if reported to a public office in accordance with a legal duty.

    Self Authenticating

    (1) Domestic Public Documents That Are Sealed and Signed. A document that bears:

    (A) a seal purporting to be that of the United States; any state, district, commonwealth, territory, or insular possession of the United States; the former Panama Canal Zone; the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands; a political subdivision of any of these entities; or a department, agency, or officer of any entity named above; and

    (B) a signature purporting to be an execution or attestation.

    Yes the letter of verification appears to be self-authenticating

    What are the Fogbow lawyers and Doc C increasingly desperate about? About birfers losing every one of the 200+ cases they’ve filed? About birfers setting themselves up for another loss in Alabama? About Obama being reelected? Nobody on the Obama side of birfer issues is desperate about anything. Birfers are wrong on the law and wrong on the facts. Birfers will always lose in court. Always. No birfer will ever win a birfer case.

    There’s something else different about them, Hermit Crab. You didn’t notice?

    The copy procured from the Alabama Supreme Court Clerk’s Office (the copy of the BC that was mailed/hand delivered to the court) is missing something that the Jack Ryan copy has:

    The Electronic Court Filing track across the top.

    What that means is that the Scribd copy was derived from the ADP’s physical copy (1) and scanned for conversion into .pdf format that could be uploaded in the electronic filing process (ECF requires every document to be converted to .pdf), and (2) went through an additional step of downloading from the Alacourt site and converted into yet another .pdf in order to be saved on a hard drive for uploading to Scribd.

    Each instance produces a moire effect which becomes more pronounced with every new generation of copy.

    Now, I will admit I do not know the exact nature of the document filed, but it appears to be causing concern on both sides of the battle.

    I don’t think that it is acceptable to copy a certified document and submit to the court without a new certifiction.

    Correct me if I am in error.

    As to the verification, I believe the same standard applies , in that a copy of certified document is not considered to be a certified document,

    And the verification only verifies what the applicant stated in the application, resulting in , perhaps, an incomplete information document that might need investigation as to whether or not important information that is in the document is not available to the court!

    this is a interesting statement from the California Secretary of State!

    http://www.sos.ca.gov/business/notary/authentication.htm

    The California Secretary of State provides authentication of public official signatures on documents to be used outside the United States of America. The country of destination determines whether the authentication is an Apostille or Certification.

    Apostilles and Certifications only certify to the authenticity of the signature of the official who signed the document, the capacity in which that official acted, and when appropriate, the identity of the seal or stamp which the document bears. The Apostille or Certification does not validate the contents of the document.”

    That seems to say that the certification of a document does not authenticate the contents of the document.

    Is that not contrary to what has been said here?

    Saynomorejoe May 4, 2013 at 2:11 am #

    Don’t bother telling me that it applies to issuing documents to foreign countries , i can read!

    You think that the State , if they will not authenticate content for foreihn countries that they will authenticate content for US applicants.

    I don’t know but I will keep looking.

    Saynomorejoe May 4, 2013 at 2:29 am #

    http://www.state.gov/m/a/auth/c16920.htm

    ——————————————————————————–

    “The Office of Authentications provides signed certificates of authenticity for a variety of documents to individuals, institutions, and government agencies. Examples of documents that may require authentication for use abroad include, but are not limited to, company bylaws, powers of attorney, trademarks, diplomas, treaties, warrants, extraditions, agreements, certificates of good standing, and courier letters.

    Prior to submitting documents requiring authentication, certain requirements must be met and are as follows:

    All seals and signatures must be original and all the dates must follow in chronological order

    All documents that in a foreign language must be accompanied with a certified (notarized) English translation. If a copy of a document is used, please include a written statement stating the document is a true and accurate copy. ”

    Now note here, that the US requires that the cerrification of the BC be with an originai signature and an original seal!

    (Onaka’s signature was rubber-stamped was it not?”

    “State and Local
    Birth Certificates

    Marriage Certificates

    Death Certificates

    Divorce Decrees

    Probate Wills

    Judgments
    You must submit the original document that contains the raised and/or stamped seal of the court or Department of vital records:

    Certified original

    Certified by the Secretary of State from the state in which the documents were recorded.

    The Secretary of State will certify to the official signing the document under the Seal of the State.”

    Whoops here the original birth certificate has to be submitted to have the US authenticate the BC!, Unless it is certified by the Secretary of State signature under the State Seal

    This is very complicated !

    Saynomorejoe: I don’t think that it is acceptable to copy a certified document and submit to the court without a new certifiction.

    Correct me if I am in error.

    OK.

    First, can you understand the difference between describing a document as ‘a photocopy of the actual birth certificate’ and ‘the actual birth certificate’? If you tell the court that what you have filed is a ‘photocopy of the actual birth certificate’ then you have certainly not misled the court, have you?

    Second, is a photocopy of a document ‘good enough’ for a court? Depends, doesn’t it? What is important about the document in question? Usually, what is important is the information on the document and nothing but the information on the document. If there is no reason to doubt the information on the photocopy, then the photocopy is good enough.

    Sometimes however, you don’t even care about the information on the document, all you care about is if the ‘original’ document exists (original here meaning the physical document that was placed on the photocopier scanner). In that case, a photocopy demonstrates that there was an original from which the photocopy was created.

    So you have been corrected: there is nothing ‘fraudulent’ about submitting a photocopy of a document, as long as it is understood that it is indeed a photocopy.

    The actual original document that the photocopy is created from is, of course, better, but that doesn’t make the photocopy a fraud. Do police bring in all the shell casings found at a murder scene, or do the bring in photos of the shell casings? Do they bring in the dead body or do they bring in photos and autopsy reports? Are the autopsy reports filed in the case the actual original physical document produced by the medical examiner, or photocopies of that document? Does the medical examiner produce many multiple ‘original’ physical documents for his files, the Prosecutor, the Defense, the Court, the Vital Statistics office, etc, etc, etc?

    Clearly, if you had photocopies of two certified documents with contradictory information on them and it was important to determine which one was the correct one, then sure, you need the actual certified document so the certification can be validated and the veracity of the certifying authorities weighed against each other.

    But in the case of the Obama Birth Certificate, you don’t have that problem. Every version, every photocopy, every independent verification, even unofficial corroborating evidence says the same thing: Obama was born in Honolulu in 1961. There is no contradictory evidence in existence. None. No evidence that Stanley was anywhere except Honolulu during the birth. No (real) Kenyan Birth Certificate. Nothing.

    The photocopy is sufficient to demonstrate that the original exists, and could be produced for the court it the court required it. And that is all it needs to do.

    Obama has already stipulated to the court that he has (in his possession) two certified copies of his LFCOLB that he requested and received from Loretta Fuddy on Apr.
    25, 2011. He has represented these two copies as duplicate photocopies of his original hospital-generated Certificate of Life Birth. He has also claimed that these copies bear the Hawaii State seal impression and the state registrar’s signature and date stamps.

    Under the “Best Evidence Rule” he (at a minimum) is obligated to provide these certified copies to the court rather than a bunch of different purported photocopies of same which are not certified and have no probative value.

    Allowing Obama to continue to flood the courts with a never-ending stream of non-identical photocopies is unfair to the plaintiffs.

    So let’s see the two certified copies.

    The shoe seems to fit snuggly. The facts prove that JR’s version is unique and different from the image filed by the Alabama Democrat Party. I wonder if Scribd has a problem with the Fogbowers continuing to post altered legal documents on their site?

    Of course, any “anomaly,” no matter how easily explained, makes the birthers go apoplectic. The amusing thing is that the inclusion of this copy of the BC in the amicus brief is really superfluous to the case itself. The exhibits are there solely to keep Alabama Justice Tom Parker from saying something stupid again:

    “Mclnnish has attached certain documentation to his mandamus petition, which, if presented to the appropriate forum as part of a proper evidentiary presentation, would raise serious questions about the authenticity of both the ‘short form’ and the ‘long form’ birth certificates of President Barack Hussein Obama that have been made public.”

    Saynomorejoe:

    Saynomorejoe, why are you quoting an irrelevant passage?

    Read the Federal Rules of Evidence, Rule 902(a). That is the rule that signifies documents such as birth certificates:

    Domestic Public Documents That Are Sealed and Signed. A document that bears:

    (A) a seal purporting to be that of the United States; any state, district, commonwealth, territory, or insular possession of the United States; the former Panama Canal Zone; the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands; a political subdivision of any of these entities; or a department, agency, or officer of any entity named above; and

    (B) a signature purporting to be an execution or attestation.

    Now, ask yourself why the State Department wouldn’t provide this service to domestic documents? Because it’s not necessary. I see no requirement for the State Department to attest to the authenticity of the document.

    Now, lets move onto international documents…

    (3) Foreign Public Documents. A document that purports to be signed or attested by a person who is authorized by a foreign country’s law to do so. The document must be accompanied by a final certification that certifies the genuineness of the signature and official position of the signer or attester — or of any foreign official whose certificate of genuineness relates to the signature or attestation or is in a chain of certificates of genuineness relating to the signature or attestation. The certification may be made by a secretary of a United States embassy or legation; by a consul general, vice consul, or consular agent of the United States; or by a diplomatic or consular official of the foreign country assigned or accredited to the United States. If all parties have been given a reasonable opportunity to investigate the document’s authenticity and accuracy, the court may, for good cause, either:

    (A) order that it be treated as presumptively authentic without final certification; or

    (B) allow it to be evidenced by an attested summary with or without final certification.

    Now, do you see why they authenticate the international documents. Because that’s actually required.

    Butterfly Bilderberg: There’s something else different about them, Hermit Crab.You didn’t notice?

    The copy procured from the Alabama Supreme Court Clerk’s Office (the copy of the BC that was mailed/hand delivered to the court) is missing something that the Jack Ryan copy has:

    The Electronic Court Filing track across the top.

    What that means is that the Scribd copy was derived from the ADP’s physical copy (1) and scanned for conversion into .pdf format that could be uploaded in the electronic filing process (ECF requires every document to be converted to .pdf), and (2) went through an additional step of downloading from the Alacourt site and converted into yet another .pdf in order to be saved on a hard drive for uploading to Scribd.

    Each instance produces a moire effect which becomes more pronounced with every new generation of copy.

    I’ll have to take your word on all of that because neither the PDF image of the ADP filed LFCOLB nor the Fogbow LFCOLB that I obtained have the court filing label.

    One would think that the ADP would just have downloaded the WH LFCOLB PDF and merged it into their court document. It would be easy to add the court label across the top edge of this image.

    Now, I will admit I do not know the exact nature of the document filed, but it appears to be causing concern on both sides of the battle.

    I don’t think that it is acceptable to copy a certified document and submit to the court without a new certifiction.

    Correct me if I am in error.

    No surprise, you are in error.

    Uncertified copies of certified documents are submitted to court all the time. Typically they are attached to motions, as in a personal injury case when an uncertified copy of a police report is submitted as an exhibit. There is a difference between attaching a copy as an exhibit and submitting it as admissible evidence.

    If the opposing party challenges the authenticity of the document, it may be necessary to produce a certified copy.

    saynomorejoe May 4, 2013 at 2:53 pm #

    Ah, but everyone seems to miss the important part of what I posted,

    They do not certify the contents of the document, only the authenticity of the signatures.

    It is , in my opinion, the fact that a certification by a state agency is the equivalent of a public notarization of a document.

    And ,it is a fact, that a notary does not certify the accuracy of the document that has been notarized, but only the signatures to the document, is it not.

    And, if you look at the SOS document they only certify the authenticity of the signatures on the documents.

    Further, of interest to me, but , obviously not to you, is that the certifications are required to have original signatures under the state seal.

    Apostille: Apostille (pronounced ah-po-stee) is a French word which means a
    certification. In notarial usage, it refers to a certificate used to authenticate the signature
    of a notary public and other public officers, placed on documents that are to be sent
    overseas. The Apostille certifies that the notary’s commission is current and the notary is
    in good standing, and it is signed by the Secretary of State. This type of authentication is
    accepted for legal use in all the nations that are members of the Hague Convention of
    October 5, 1961.
    Authentication: This term refers to either an Apostille or a Certificate of Magistracy.

    now that would seem to indicate that certifications are, indeed, simply the way the state notarizes their documents.

    So, a notary is a public official similar , in effect, to a state employee , but notarizes rather than certifies.

    That’s not really correct. The certification on a birth certificate is not a certification of the signatures on the certificate, but a certification that the contents of the certificate reflects the official records of the agency.

    If you want to call it an “official notarization” I don’t have a problem with that, but what is being notarized is the copy of the public record, not just the signature of the person who issues the certificate.

    saynomorejoe: They do not certify the contents of the document, only the authenticity of the signatures.

    How about I dig a hole 2 feet by 2 feet and then fill it back in? Would that satisfy you just as well?

    The Physician who signed the birth certificate in 1961 is certifying that the event happened. The registrars who signed the certificate in 1961 certified that the certificate was filed according to the laws and regulations of the time, and the registrar in 2011 certifies that the copy issued in 2011 reflects the official agency records from 1961.

    There is nothing to discuss.

    Wrong again. Do you ever grow weary of being wrong so often?

    A notary certifies that the document in question was actually signed by the person whose signature appears on the document.

    A certification of a document certifies that the document is an authentic and accurate copy or abstract of the original document.

    In the case of Obama’s LFBC, the signatures of the attending physician and Obama’s mother attest to the accuracy of the information on the birth certificate. The signature of Onaka and the seal of the State of Hawaii attest to the fact that the copy of the LFBC is identical to the original document.

    A) The attending physician certifies that the child named on the certificate was born alive at the date and time indicated on the certificate.

    saynomorejoe May 4, 2013 at 5:14 pm #

    Well, I am glad that you asked that, and provided that document for examination.

    One, it is not the original birth certificate as if does not have the birth number on it!

    Therefore it is the copy of a document that may have been provided by the hospital to the parents as the copys that are provided to the State are required to have signatures.

    It is a valid certified copy of a document, but that does not make it accurate, although, I notice that is , de facto, not valid , as it is shown as a photocopy

    It has been typed by a professional typist as it does not contain the irregularities of some fake birth ceritificates., Namely it is tabbbed for the form.

    Now, just to throw some juice into the game, it is possible to intrepret the not valid if photocopied to mean that if it is photocopied the certified copy in void.!
    Not that the original is void, but the certified copy is voided!

    Further , it is not copied onto safety paper, although it is possible that the bordering is considered safety paper, but I doubt it!

    And it does not show the varied DPI that is shown on the O LFBC which makes it more liable to be real, then the LFBC

    Maybe someone else well show the layers, but I do not have that program!

    (b) Copies of the contents of any certificate on file in the department, certified by the department shall be considered for all purposes the same as the original, subject to the requirements of sections 338-16, 338-17, and 338-18.

    Now the content of the original birth certificate may be fraudulent but that requires a bit more than wishful thinking and it is up to those rejecting its veracity to produce such evidence. Given that it was signed by the hospital attending physician and given that it was filed within days after birth, this appears to be an uphill battle.

    Sorry but unless one can show fraud, the presumption is that the data on the document is correct. And given the circumstances of his birth, there are no reasons to doubt otherwise. Since people have failed to provide any evidence of fraud, the conclusion is simple and contrary to your foolish position. In court documents that are properly attested to are prima facie evidence and unless they can be rebutted, the court will not entertain unsupported possibilities of fraud.

    No attorney for Obama has made any representations to a court regarding the long form birth certificate, period. You were wrong.

    Hermitian: Tepper and Begley are the attorneys of record for MDEC and Obama in Mississippi. T & B have not retracted their motion for JOP after Obama became a defendant.

    Defense go off the rails? More fantasy from the Birther Book of Tall Tales?

    I think that it is fair to say from the remarks by Mr. Tepper made on the RC Radio program when he was interviewed along with Begley, that Tepper feels Orly Taitz is a blight on the legal profession, and it would seem likely that he volunteered to assist Begley. I have no knowledge yes or no as to whether there was any involvement by the President in that association, but I really doubt that there was.

    But back to the point, you said “Obama’s attorney” made a stipulation in court about the birth certificate, and you relied on that premise in an argument. Tepper was not Obama’s attorney, and no matter what hypothetical involvement you imagine, no stipulation on behalf of the Mississippi Democratic Party Executive Committee is binding on President Obama. In short, your argument was a bunch of hooey, and you lack the integrity to admit it.

    nbc: Sorry but unless one can show fraud, the presumption is that the data on the document is correct. And given the circumstances of his birth, there are no reasons to doubt otherwise. Since people have failed to provide any evidence of fraud, the conclusion is simple and contrary to your foolish position. In court documents that are properly attested to are prima facie evidence and unless they can be rebutted, the court will not entertain unsupported possibilities of fraud.

    Sorry my friend, I had no idea you were so clueless about our legal system. Perhaps you want to check up on federal rules of evidence as well as the presumption of innocence.

    “Following the Birther Axiom of Equivalence (BAE):

    A simple truism when it comes to documental decisions.

    Anything odd about a $100 note is probably fraud!

    A refusal to admit erroneous documents exist indeed may be an indication of fraud.

    A denial of evidence may indeed be indicatiive of fraud.

    A false name on a registration may , indeed, be an indication of fraud.

    A belief in the truth of a document may indeed be fraud!

    Any denial of fraud may be the evidence needed to determine the existence of fraud.

    A true statement may indicate an attempt at fraud.

    A wise person knows that fraud can not be avoided completely but also knows that if you believe you can not be mislead by statement, you are a good target for scammers.

    There is nothing odd about the short or long form birth certificates. They were filed within the time allotted, and thus not a late filing, they were properly signed by the attending physician. So your standard, which amounts to little in court, has to be rejected as failed anyway.

    Given that the officials of the DOH have attested to the accuracy of the documents presented, any presumption of fraud needs more than wishful thinking. And the courts will never go down that rabbit hole. For good reasons.

    I suggest that you revisit your earlier post “Green Light! Red Light! of Feb 1, 2012.

    “Green light! Red light!

    By Dr. Conspiracy on February 1, 2012in Orly Taitz, WorldNetDaily

    WorldNetDaily staff writer Bob Unruh published an article today titled ‘Green light’ to see Obama’s Hawaii files.

    According to Taitz (and I guess she would know), Obama’s attorney sent a copy of the President’s long-form birth certificate to Judge Malihi and to Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp. However, as with many things in the past, Orly believes that this gives her the right to look at the original:

    That act, Taitz explained, effectively gave the court a copy of the White House documentation, and under ordinary rules of evidence the opposing side is supposed to have access to the original to verify the authenticity of the purported copy.

    “They submitted a copy and said this is a copy of the original birth certificate. Now the other party has a right to examine the original,” she said.

    I am not a lawyer so I can’t say for sure whether there is any validity to this claim insofar as the original stamped and sealed certified copy that was shown to the Press last April. My feeling is that it does not. Evidence gathering in the Georgia administrative courts seems to be a much more informal process than in Superior Court. The administrative court just collects information to aid in recommendations. Lots of things were admitted into the record of Farrar v. Obama that violate “ordinary rules of evidence.” However, Taitz isn’t stopping at the certified copy; she wants the whole enchilada, a subpoena to Hawaii for the original hospital form, something which the State of Hawaii has already said it was illegal for her to have.”

    Obama was a no-show defendant in Georgia. He and his personal records were under subpoena after Judge Mahili ruled against Obama’s motion to quash.

    If Jablonski didn’t provide certified copies to Mahili then the defense would have presented no evidence refuting the plaintiff’s claims of forgery.

    Your mind was open then but apparently now closed.

    Quoting directly from the Unruh article…

    “Now California attorney Orly Taitz, who has brought a number of major legal challenges to Obama’s eligibility in various courts up to the U.S. Supreme Court, has told WND that when Obama and his lawyer wrote a letter to Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp last week refusing to attend the hearing on Obama’s eligibility status, they included a copy of the image that the White House released last April

    “They also sent a copy to the court of Judge Michael Malihi, the hearing officer, whose ruling is expected to be made available in the next few days.

    “That act, Taitz explained, effectively gave the court a copy of the White House documentation, and under ordinary rules of evidence the opposing side is supposed to have access to the original to verify the authenticity of the purported copy.

    Dr. Conspiracy May 5, 2013 at 8:23 pm #

    OK, focusing back on where this started, you said:

    Obama has already stipulated to the court that he has (in his possession) two certified copies of his LFCOLB that he requested and received from Loretta Fuddy on Apr. 25, 2011. He has represented these two copies as duplicate photocopies of his original hospital-generated Certificate of Life Birth. He has also claimed that these copies bear the Hawaii State seal impression and the state registrar’s signature and date stamps.

    Under the “Best Evidence Rule” he (at a minimum) is obligated to provide …

    So after three tries, you came up with something that sort of fits. (And I am gratified that this web site is a useful tool for finding stuff, since you found it here.) I was mistaken in the general thrust of my remarks saying this hadn’t happened, although it appears that what actually happened doesn’t quite fit the way you describe it. At least in one instance, in the motion to quash the subpoenas, Obama’s attorney, Jablonski, wrote:

    President Obama released documents provided to him by the State of Hawaii evidencing his birth. Numerous individuals, including plaintiff’s attorney, petitioned Hawaii to obtain exemplars of the birth record provided by the State. The President made the documents available to general public by placing it on his web site. Although the document has been generally available for years [this indicates that the preceding refers to the "short form" released in 2008], the President took the extraordinary step of acquiring a copy of the record of birth, informally known as the “long form,” making it available to anyone who cares to check the web site. The general availability of the document to various plaintiffs in these actions is demonstrated by inclusion of the document in several filings with OSAH.

    The documents in the Farrar case are incomplete and I don’t know where and in what context Jablonski provided copies of the long form. Still it seems not credible that such a submission caused the presentation of forgery claims by Plaintiffs, since such claims were rampant at the time, and part of Taitz’ bag of tricks.

    Farrar, in his original complaint to OSAH, does not call the long form a “forgery” but rather factually inconsistent and lacking veracity.

    The mootness of this as an example, however, is that the Farrar case is closed, and whatever may or may not have happened, it doesn’t help your original claim: “Under the “Best Evidence Rule” he (at a minimum) is obligated to provide…” Perhaps he was obligated to provide something in 2012, but in the past tense.

    Hermitian: I suggest that you revisit your earlier post “Green Light! Red Light! of Feb 1, 2012.

    In the Mississippi case, she “served” Nancy Pelosi, President Obama, and Michael Astrue with papers through the AG’s office in DC, but her proof of service says the court papers were from a case in Indiana.

    Tepper and Begley responded on behalf of Obama and Pelosi–who were being sued in their private capacities–based on this obviously flawed service. I suppose they decided to take advantage of having the world’s foremost anti-birfer lawyer–Teppernator–working on this case to get a ruling on the merits against Obama and Pelosi so that it will be easier to get the case dismissed the next time she sues Obama and Pelosi based on this same birfer bullshit, which she certainly will.

    The DOJ decided not to respond on behalf of Michael Astrue–who was sued in his official capacity as the (now former) head of SSA–because of her obviously defective service.

    I believe Jablonski did provide electronic copies of both the long and short form BCs with his letter to the SoS the night before the Georgia hearing. He does not reference them in the letter. It is not mentioned in ALJ Malihi’s ruling, and I certainly would not believe it based only on the word of Orly Taitz, who is a well-documented liar and moron. However, Mark Hatfield who–despite being a birfer–is sane, references them in his appeal of ALJ Malihi’s ruling. I believe him.

    But Jablonski sent pdfs, not hard copies or certified copies, and these copies are not part of the record of the case. They are not in any of the pleadings and they are not mentioned in the ruling.

    The birth certificate was submitted at the administrative hearing by plaintiffs pushing the “two citizen parents” line of failure. Orly did not object to Malihi receiving it.

    The defense did not participate in the hearing, so it could not submit the certificate into evidence.

    Whether or not it was attached to a letter outside of the hearing doesn’t change anything.

    Even if things were as Orly states (and they rarely are), she has trouble understanding the best evidence rule.

    No they wouldn’t, Hermi. A rational person would look at the pile of crap Orly has submitted in this case and wonder why a federal judge has to waste his time on this BS. There is no chance at all that this case won’t be dismissed on the pleadings. It is 100% certain that the defendants’ motions for judgment on the pleadings will be granted. In fact, I think it is more likely that the judge taking his time making a ruling is a bad sign for Taitz. He might be preparing to make the definitive anti-birfer ruling that will stop this incompetent, America-hating lunatic–Orly Taitz–from abusing the court system. I could be wrong on that last part. He might be slow just because he’s works slowly, but I am certainly not wrong in my prediction that this case will be disposed of on the pleadings.

    Unless you think an attestment includes alterations to the form.

    They have attested to the accuracy of the copy of the document, and not of the document itself, as to due that they would have to accept the attestation of the Doctor whose attestation could not have included the modification to the document.

    Jah-eez!!

    When will you birthers learn?
    It doesn’t matter about the birth certificate.
    It could be scribbled on a napkin, etched on a pop tart with a laser beam or peed in the sand on the beach.
    The BC…. the paper, the certificate, the form itself… is meaningless.

    It’s the INFO that’s important: Where and when Obama was born.
    So far, all or most copies say August 1961 in Hawai’i.
    Why the birther train hasn’t stopped to consider what’s around the next bend is why this is all so ridiculous.

    Ok, birthers…let’s say that there actually was a court case where the court AGREED a BC was a forgery.
    Da Da!!
    Happy now birthers? Think you’ve finally won?
    Well…sorry, no, because you would be left with a situation you couldn’t overcome.

    Consider: you’ve just proven a document as a forgery, but the INFO on it remains uncontested.
    No one has provided any evidence of any other date or place of birth for Obama.

    For that matter, you’ve not even offered any evidence who forged the document.
    You’ve provided no DNA, fingerprints or other material evidence.
    For all a judge knows, you yourselves could have drawn it up during lunch at McDonald’s.

    So what difference would any of this make?
    None, because it’s the information ON the birth certificate that’s important.
    If it’s not accurate, the entire case is actually against the health dept of Hawai’i, not Obama.
    They’re the officials swearing under penalty of perjury the info is accurate.
    Obama doesn’t have the ability to add or change the HDOH’s records.
    All he’s provided us is what the HDOH provided him.

    So here’s all this talk about birth certificates and not a bit about any evidence against the HDOH.
    This is one of the reasons birthers are so dumb.
    They’re out thinking they’re clever chasing clues like little Sherlock Holmes, but all the while are forgetting that the buck stops at the official word of the HDOH.
    It doesn’t matter what cases they win. (so far, zero.)
    They can’t prove a negative and innocence is assumed unless proven otherwise.
    With not a shred of countering evidence, somehow the birthers have overlooked how impossible it would be to obtain discovery with HIPAA laws.
    What court in the world would take zero evidence over officially certified state evidence?
    None. (again.. so far, zero.)
    Dumb birthers.

Think you’ve finally won?Well…sorry, no, because you would be left with a situation you couldn’t overcome.Consider: you’ve just proven a document as a forgery, but the INFO on it remains uncontested.No one has provided any evidence of any other date or place of birth for Obama.For that matter, you’ve not even offered any evidence who forged the document.You’ve provided no DNA, fingerprints or other material evidence.For all a judge knows, you yourselves could have drawn it up during lunch at McDonald’s.So what difference would any of this make?None, because it’s the information ON the birth certificate that’s important.If it’s not accurate, the entire case is actually against the health dept of Hawai’i, not Obama.They’re the officials swearing under penalty of perjury the info is accurate.Obama doesn’t have the ability to add or change the HDOH’s records.All he’s provided us is what the HDOH provided him.So here’s all this talk about birth certificates and not a bit about any evidence against the HDOH.This is one of the reasons birthers are so dumb.They’re out thinking they’re clever chasing clues like little Sherlock Holmes, but all the while are forgetting that the buck stops at the official word of the HDOH.It doesn’t matter what cases they win. (so far, zero.)They can’t prove a negative and innocence is assumed unless proven otherwise.With not a shred of countering evidence, somehow the birthers have overlooked how impossible it would be to obtain discovery with HIPAA laws.What court in the world would take zero evidence over officially certified state evidence?None. (again.. so far, zero.)Dumb birthers.

    Ah, a real explanation of the problem, indeed. Except for the fact that the form is not forged, the document is forged, and the document contains the facts, which, makes the facts unreliable for any purposes.

    And in fact there was a case In California (bustamante xlll) where the certified document was not accepable because the document was fraudulently obtained by providing false information as to the birth date of the individual.

    That was a case where the document was not forged as it was completed on the right form, accepted, registered, and a certified copy issued, but the evidence showed that the defendent have falsified the application, which, of course , made the birth certificate un-acceptable.

    saynomorejoe: Not one person has attested to the accuracy of the document! The Doctor attested to the facts of the birth, and not to the document, as the document was modified after he signed it.

    The doctor signed as to the accurate of the information of the form at the time he signed the document. Sure, after this, various stamps and signatures may be added. But in the end, the relevance is that the Doctor signed off on the birth of a baby named Barack Hussein Obama. That signature and the signatures following all testify to the accuracy of the information on the document.
    In order to overcome this presumption, one has to do more than point out the possibility of fraud.

    No evidence of such exists. So far we know that the Doctor signed off on all the relevant facts as to the birth of Barack Hussein Obama and that the document was filed with the DOH of Hawaii within a few days of his birth.

    There is NOTHING to suggest that the document is fraudulent, and there is no similarity to Bustamante whose document was put in doubt by its late filing. There is no similarity to President Obama’s case here.

    We know from the document that the doctor himself signed off on the fact of the birth on US soil.

    Bustamante’s delayed certificate was based on a certificate of baptism…

    Big difference.

    And of course you have yet to show that there are any evidences of fraud…

    (1) Delayed birth certificate, even where unrebutted by contradictory evidence, will not in every case establish petitioner’s status as United States citizen. Matter of Herrera,131.
    & N. Dec. 755 (BIA 1971), clarified. (2) Each case in which United States citizenship is sought to be established through a delayed birth certificate must be decided on its own facts with regard to the sufficiency of the evidence presented as to petitioner’s birthplace.

    See also MAH TOI v. BROWNELL 219 F.2d 642 (1955)

    And then understand the nature of prima facie evidence. Now if you could show that the signature of the hospital attending physician was forged…

    Good luck my friend. So far there is not a single bit of evidence that undermines President Obama’s birth on US soil.

    Hermitian May 6, 2013 at 7:46 am #

    Next the Obots are going to claim that the clerk of the Mississippi Southern District Federal Court changed the color of the original case label of the page 2/8 LFCOLB from Blue to Green and then added the second case label in Blue to create the new page 4/11 LFCOLB PDF image.

    The “Green label” is on page 2 of document 15-1.pdf.

    The altered LFCOLB appearing on page 4 of Document 35-1 has the “Document 15-1″ case label in Green and the “Document 35-1″ case label in Blue.

    In other words, we are to believe that neither Tepper, Begley nor the MDEC made these changes nor instructed the clerk to do same.

    Sure, when pigs can fly!

    The fact that the Tepper page 4/11 LFCOLB PDF image is otherwise a totally a different PDF image than the page 2/8 LFCOLB image doesn’t seem to bother the OBOTS.

    I believe Jablonski did provide electronic copies of both the long and short form BCs with his letter to the SoS the night before the Georgia hearing. He does not reference them in the letter. It is not mentioned in ALJ Malihi’s ruling, and I certainly would not believe it based only on the word of Orly Taitz, who is a well-documented liar and moron. However, Mark Hatfield who–despite being a birfer–is sane, references them in his appeal of ALJ Malihi’s ruling. I believe him.

    But Jablonski sent pdfs, not hard copies or certified copies, and these copies are not part of the record of the case. They are not in any of the pleadings and they are not mentioned in the ruling.

    So you are claiming that judge Mahili reached his ruling as to Obama’s eligibility based entirely on the poorly made copies of the forged LFCOLB PDF image that were produced by the Plaintiffs?

    This in spite of Mahili having already seen the actual PDF images attached to Jablonski’s email.

    And then he declared that all the evidence presented by the Plaintiffs had zero probative value.

    Yes. I believe the courts allow a moron to represent clients. Orly Taitz is proof of that. She regularly screws up numbering on lists. She can’t figure out how to use basic formatting options in Word. In almost five years of birfing, she has never once properly served any defendant, despite judges repeatedly describing to her in great detail what she needs to do. Her exhibits are often illegible.

    I doubt that, taken as a group, lawyers are any smarter than other college graduates. There are some smart ones and some not so smart ones, just like in every profession. But Orly is unquestionably the least competent lawyer anyone has ever seen anywhere. That’s one reason why so many anti-birfers are lawyers. Taitz is a disgrace to their profession.

    Reality Check: Moire

    The Obot presumption is that Jack Ryan took the actual B&W LFCOLB PDF image that was filed by the ADP and scanned it for upload to Scribd. Never mind that his scanner would have had to fracture the single bitmap image of the filed copy into hundreds of layers and also produce the diamond pattern in the background.

    Why am I not surprised that the Obots have again thrown up their same old worn-out defense that “the scanner made me do it”.

    The only problem is that, except for the “white diamond” regions of pixels that have been removed from the Ryan image, the two images are otherwise identical down to the individual black pixels.

    This is irrefutable proof that Ryan did not scan the ADP image but rather deliberately manipulated the ADP PDF image to produce the diamond background pattern for his Scribd image.

    Moreover, the background pixels are random in position on both images rather than a repeating pattern. Additionally, the pixel size of 1/200 in. X 1/200 in. is much smaller than the diamonds that comprise the background pattern of the Ryan image. These facts together with the fact that moire patterns are always superimposed over the repeating printed patterns that create them totally rules out the possibility than Ryan produced his “oddball” copy merely by scanning the ADP image. There is no way that the “white diamonds” are a result of a moire pattern. A regular moire pattern cannot be produced from a random pattern of small black pixels.

    Bustamante was a case involving fraud. Your argument regarding Hawaii would need to be the same, fraud. You say the “document is forged.” By that I mean you suppose the signatures are forged? That the doctor did not sign, someone else signed his name, or some other variation of that?

    Now you are saying it *is* forged or a case of fraud? Not just that it *could* be in some alternate universe? Do you have the slightest evidence?

    Regardless of whether it is fraud involving forgery, or just fraud, where is your proof, young man?

    As I and others have pointed out to you, Obama is not Bustamante, his situation does not resemble Bustamante’s.

    Why should it bother me?

    The State of Hawaii has confirmed repeatedly- and consistantly- since 2008 that Barack Obama was born in Hawaii. The birth certificates that have been issued- the 2007 Birth Certificate, and the photocopy of the original shown at the Press conference in 2011(?) all show the same consistant- and relevant information- that Barack Obama was born in Hawaii.

    I really don’t care if Birthers want to argue about how many angels fit on top of Obama’s BC because Barack Obama’s place of birth has not only been confirmed to a far greater degree than any previous President, he has been re-elected for the second time, and the American voters properly ignored Birther whackjob claims.

    As I explained, Orly’s continued failures show her to be somewhat lacking in these areas. I would not call her a moron, but I do understand why people may use the term.

    I was addressing your question about admission to the bar or the court, which of course never has guaranteed the quality of the lawyer. Our legal history is full of examples where lawyers were incompetent, or lazy or whatever.

    So let’s stick to what I said, not what you wish I said…

    Just an example:

    The Court finds the testimony of the witnesses, as well as the exhibits tendered, to be of little, if any, probative value, and thus wholly insufficient to support Plaintiffs’ allegations.3 Ms. Taitz attempted to solicit expert testimony from several of the witnesses without qualifying or tendering the witnesses as experts. See Stephens v. State,
    219 Ga. App. 881 (1996) (the unqualified testimony of the witness was not competent evidence).

    and

    Another witness testified that she has concluded that the social security number Mr. Obama uses is fraudulent;
    however, her investigatory methods and her sources of information were not properly presented, and she was never qualified or tendered as an expert in social security fraud, or
    fraud investigations in general

    Jablonski did not have to be present :-) Orly could handle it all herself quite effortless…

    According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, one definition of ‘moron’ is ‘a very stupid person.’ I believe that definition applies to Orly Taitz. I believe that, in licensing Orly Taitz, the California Bar has given a license to a moron, as has every other jurisdiction that has given Orly Taitz permission to practice law.

    She is a disgrace to her profession and an embarrassment to the California Bar, which allows her to continue to craptice law despite her obvious incompetence and unethical behavior.

    saynomorejoe: So, you agree that the courts admit moron lawyers to their courts?

    And you think that the bar admits morons to the Bar?

    Or is it that you do not use the word “moron” in its common usage, but more as a slander or slur on an individual?

    I know that someone recently applied iText to many or all of the court filings in the Mississippi Ballot Challenge case just to change the font of the case labels.

    This modification also added Chinese script in one line of METADATA in one file.

    Maybe the Chinese hacked into the Mississippi court’s CM/ECF system?

    The ABBYY tool is infamous for these effects. As to the background, I find it hilarious how people have become so upset by this as it does not even affect the original filing…

    Have you even tried to analyze the documents using PDF viewing software which can dump the raw content? Have you used ABBYY to see how it affects the document?

    Of course not.

    You can screech about PDFs on the internet all you want, but the State of Hawaii still certifies that President Obama was born in their state, and that they have his original birth record on file.

    Hermitian: Next the Obots are going to claim that the clerk of the Mississippi Southern District Federal Court changed the color of the original case label of the page 2/8 LFCOLB from Blue to Green and then added the second case label in Blue to create the new page 4/11 LFCOLB PDF image.

    Why should we change our original explanation? The green came from printing and re-scanning the February filing – printing and scanning each can change the color of a document. The original case label was added automatically by the ECF system in February at the first filing, as was the second case label in April at the second filing. This has been explained to you dozens of times.

    ALJ Malihi said that the evidence presented by Taitz had no probative value. He did not say that about evidence presented by the other lawyers. Irion entered a pdf of the LFBC into evidence as proof that President Obama’s father was born in Kenya. He did not question its veracity. Taitz did not object. Perhaps she could have objected and asked that it be admitted only for the purpose of proving who Obama’s father was and where his father was born, and not for the purpose of proving the other facts of his birth, but she did not. She tried to prove it was a forgery, but she failed. That’s what the judge ruled.

    As for your comment about the quality of the images, I’m sure that ALJ Malihi is smart enough to know that the quality of a copy of a document has no bearing on the veracity of the information in the underlying document. Furthermore, I don’t have any knowledge of the quality of the pdfs that Jablonski sent to the SoS. My guess is he got them from the same place everybody else did: the White House web site. Jablonski’s copies were not part of the record in this case. Irion’s copy was.

    Hermitian: So you are claiming that judge Mahilireached his ruling as to Obama’s eligibility based entirely on the poorly made copies of the forged LFCOLB PDF image that were produced by the Plaintiffs?

    This in spite of Mahili having already seen the actual PDF images attached to Jablonski’s email.

    And then he declared that all the evidence presented by the Plaintiffs had zero probative value.

    nbc: No evidence of such exists. So far we know that the Doctor signed off on all the relevant facts as to the birth of Barack Hussein Obama and that the document was filed with the DOH of Hawaii within a few days of his birth.There is NOTHING to suggest that the document is fraudulent, and there is no similarity to Bustamante whose document was put in doubt by its late filing. There is no similarity to President Obama’s case here.We know from the document that the doctor himself signed off on the fact of the birth on US soil.Bustamante’s delayed certificate was based on a certificate of baptism…Big difference. And of course you have yet to show that there are any evidences of fraud…

    Wait, you admit that a certified birth certificate can be put in doubt?

    And that you know that the Doctor’s signature on the LFBC is indeed signed by the Doctor?

    If you want to claim the doctor’s signature isn’t really the doctor’s signature, the burden of proof is on you. If I owe you $100 and pay you back with a $100 bill, the burden of proof is not on me that the note isn’t counterfeit money.

    saynomorejoe: Check what he said he attested to. The birth and time of the child’s birth

    scott e: actually it is, if the counterfeit is identified before it is accepted as payment.

    You don’t get the analogy. If I pay you back with a $100 note, you cannot just say “but I heard of cases where $100 notes are forged, so this note is not legal tender until proven otherwise, you still owe me $100″, nor “but I heard of cases where $100 notes are forged, so you need to prove to me in court you paid me back with real money”, nor “you need to prove to me the signature on the $100 note was really from the guy it says it’s from”.

    Besides, your logic is wrong, too. If you say that “the counterfeit is identified”, then you have a material issue of fact and no longer a burden of proof.
    Likewise, if you can prove Obama was not born in Hawaii, then you have a material issue of fact and have met your burden of proof. Simply saying “some guy on the internet says the PDF is forged and I don’t believe the Hawaiian DOH because they didn’t use the words I want them to use” does not cut it.

    There is irrefutable proof that the White House released Obama LFCOLB PDF image was not created by scanning any paper document.

    Why would a forger clip individual letters from multiple birth certificates?

    Explain the rationale for box 6c. The box reads – “6c Name of Hospital or Institution (if not in hospital or institution give street address)”. Some letters are on one layer and others are on a different layer.

    Why would a forger cut individual letters to create that label? He/she could have clipped the complete sentence from any of the “multiple birth certificates”, just like the other box’s labels on the pdf.

    Why is the “R” in “BARACK” in box 1a different from the “R” in “BARACK” in box 8? He/she could have clipped the same “R” or having created the first “BARACK” used it again.

    The Magic M: How can the “information contained” “match” without being a true and correct copy?

    All that means is that it is an accurate copy. To be a true copy, it must not have been altered at any point from the original before or during the copying process. So if you make a true copy of the original record, add a certification, seal and signature, and then copy the copy, the second copy -while still an accurate copy- is not a true copy because the copied certification and signature (and possibly seal) were not present on the original.

    Note that adding authentification and security to a true copy does not negate the status of “true copy”. But copying a true copy that has self-authentification or security added makes the second copy not a true copy.

    Which is why scans of birth certificates are not true copies, even if there is no forgery or fraud.

    Oh why are Birthers so dishonest?

    The State of Hawaii has confirmed that Barack Obama was born in Hawaii- consistantly and repeatedly. The verification that you want to quibble about is just one of many verifications.
    http://hawaii.gov/health/about/pr/2008/08-93.pdf
    Dr. Fukino 10/31/08
    “Therefore, I as Director of Health for the State of Hawai‘i, along with the Registrar of Vital Statistics who has statutory authority to oversee and maintain these type of vital records, have personally seen and verified that the Hawai‘i State Department of Health has Sen. Obama’s original birth certificate on record in accordance with state policies and procedures.

    Dr. Fukino 7/27/09
    “I, Dr. Chiyome Fukino, Director of the Hawai‛i State Department of Health, have seen the original vital records maintained on file by the Hawai‘i State Department of Health verifying Barack Hussein Obama was born in Hawai‘i and is a natural-born American citizen.

    Director Loretta Fuddy 4/27/11
    HONOLULU – The Hawai„i State Health Department recently complied with a request by President Barack Obama for certified copies of his original Certificate of Live Birth, which is sometimes referred to in the media as a “long form” birth certificate.
    “We hope that issuing certified copies of the original Certificate of Live Birth to President Obama will end the numerous inquiries related to his birth in Hawai„i,” Hawai„i Health Director Loretta Fuddy said. “I have seen the original records filed at the Department of Health and attest to the authenticity of the certified copies the department provided to the President that further prove the fact that he was born in Hawai„i.”

    In June 2008, President Obama released his Certification of Live Birth, which is sometimes referred to in the media as a “short form” birth certificate. Both documents are legally sufficient evidence of birth in the State of Hawai„i, and both provide the same fundamental information: President Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawai„i at 7:24 p.m. on August 4, 1961, to mother Stanley Ann Dunham and father Barack Hussein Obama.

    Unlike any previous president, I have seen copies of Barack Obama’s birth certificate. These copies have been repeatedly verified by multiple authorities with access to the actual documents. Barack Obama’s birth in Hawaii has been confirmed by two Hawaiian governors- one who whom knew Obama’s parents when he was born.

    I don’t care about some stupid Birther argument about background colors of reprints of documents that the State of Hawaii has confirmed are correct.

    http://hawaii.gov/health/vital-records/obama.html
    On April 27, 2011 President Barack Obama posted a certified copy of his original Certificate of Live Birth.

    Unless and until you have proof that the State of Hawaii is participating in some conspiracy, through two administrations, Republican and Democrat, all you have are the usual Birther speculation and lies.

    Spend as many hours as you want looking at background of copies of documents whose content has been verified- it is your time. But it is a fools errand.

    Obama’s birth in Hawaii has been established, and proven, way beyond any point of reasonable doubt- and he has already been re-elected.

    Zatkovich’s full report is here.

    http://www.ecompconsultants.com/news/Obama-report.pdf

    I would characterize it as “fair and balanced” — he gave the creator the benefit of doubt that the “white halos” could have been added in an edit for purpose of enhancing the text.

    A middle-of-the road report is expected given the fact that he churned it out within two days of the release of the LFCOLB PDF.

    For example here is his summary statement:

    “In summary, my analysis indicates that there were modifications made to the PDF, and that the PDF contains, at minimum, slight alterations to the original scanned document. I have identified anomalies in the document in two general areas:

    “a. The PDF contains multiple ‘layers’, which is not consistent with a simple scanned document.

    “b. Most of the text in the document is surrounded by a white border which would not have been part of the Green copy produced by Hawaii.

    He also found that the PDF image included both TIFF and PNG images. He stated that TIFF files are often created by scanning software.

    “AllofthemodificationstothePDFdocumentthatcanbeidentifiedareconsistentwith
    someoneenhancingthelegibilityofthedocument.Itispossiblethatinadditionto

    The Certification of Live Birth that was posted on the White House web site has a redacted certificate number and is therefore altered. The certificate has a warning at the bottom that “any alterations invalidate this certificate”.

    The COLB posted by the WH also happens to be a forgery created by Dr. Ron Polland.

    Dr. Conspiracy: So is your head, but such is the way of conspiracy theorists. Every qualified expert who has looked at the President’s long form birth certificate PDF has failed to conclude that there is any fakery in it. In fact, one expert, Zatkovich, said specifically that it was a document scan.

    Good, but who were the qualified experts? Do you thnk that Karl Denninger is a qualified expert?
    He is the one that said it was kerned and could not be an original, was he not

    saynomorejoe: Oh, by the way, I could not find anyone posting a statement that proves the BC is real!

    Which other President had anyone “posting a statement” that his BC even exists, let alone is real?

    saynomorejoe: Do you thnk that Karl Denninger is a qualified expert?

    On what? Typewriters? No. PDF’s? No. Forensic document examination? No. So whatever he’s a “qualified expert” in, it’s none of the issues relevant to Obama’s BC.

    saynomorejoe: He is the one that said it was kerned

    If he did, he’d have disqualified himself by that statement, same as Paul Irey.

    The “kerning” claim was that some letters allegedly “bleed” into the space of other letters, stating “that is something typewriters of that time don’t do”.

    Well, first, that is wrong as a matter of nomenclature. “Kerning” is a typographical term of art that means “moving a letter into the space of the preceding letter for aesthetical reasons”. The classical example is “AVA” being rendered in a way that doesn’t create ugly spaces “A V A”.
    Somebody calling the overbleed of letters that has nothing to do with aesthetical reasons “kerning” would expose himself as a non-expert in this field.

    Second, that is wrong as a matter of fact. Old typewriters create overlapping characters for a plethora of reasons, starting with “ink bleeding into the previous character’s space” over “typist typing two letters faster than the typewriter can advance one space” to “irregularities in the typewriter’s letter setup” (e.g. one letter being set off-center to the right and another off-center to the left, making the sequence of both letters appear closer to each other than standard).

    You can easily find examples of old typewritings that show such behaviour on Google. I did when I debunked Irey’s “kerning” claims on WND, he never answered to the evidence I gave him (of course). If you’re too lazy, just tell me and I will look it up for you. But only if you promise to address that argument. I don’t work by “show me the proof and then I will ignore it”.

    Joe: You won’t find a qualified expert who draws the conclusion that Obama’s birth certificate is real based on an analysis of the pdf because every qualified expert knows that one cannot judge the integrity of a document by looking at a pdf of it. Birfers don’t get that. What the qualified experts have said is that the pdf on the White House web site is consistent with a scan of an actual document. That’s all a qualified expert would ever testify to if they haven’t examined the actual document.

    And let’s not forget, not everyone with a bit of technical knowledge and an opinion is a qualified expert. Certainly Karl Denninger, Doug Vogt, and the rest of the birfoon “experts” would not qualify as experts in court because they were birfers before they became “experts.” They are clearly not neutral. Their experience probably wouldn’t qualify them as experts anyway, but there’s no reason to get into their technical knowledge when their bias is so obvious.

    They have opinions. They are free to express them. And the world is free to ignore them.

    Exactly. Even if the Stephen Hawking of forensic document analysis said “it’s a forgery” – if he was on record as a birther, his expertise would not mean zilch anymore.

    See, saynomorejoe, that’s how it works in court. If one side brings an expert who would pass a Daubert hearing, the court would still throw him out if the other side could prove the expert is on record as biased towards one side. His whole “expertness” would suddenly vanish.

    Because he managed to find an image of a white person with short hair at Malcom X’s funeral, said that was Ann Dunham because Obama sometimes wears sunglasses and is therefore X’s son, and therefore as part of the cover up they altered Ann Dunhams hairstyle.

    He confirmed that the multiple layers of the PDF document are anomalous.

    “When a paper document is scanned on a scanner and saved as a PDF file it normally contains only a single layer of graphical information. The PDF that appears on the White House website however, contains multiple layers of graphic information. Multiple layers usually appear in a document like this when it is being edited or modified in some fashion.

    “It is possible to take a single layer PDF and inadvertently create multiple layers, without changing the image in any fashion. But that does not appear to be the case here. The multiple layers in the PDF document are a result of changes made to the image,” his report said.

    THe problem with this argument, is that we have real statements by those who have seen the document, that the documents are real, and match those on file. By any legal standard, this raises the bar significantly.

    The document was scanned, and highly compressed, but it shows all the relevant data, the stamp/signature and the seal, there has been at least one photograph of the document, and there have been B&W copies. I see nothing significant beyond the fact that combined with all the official statements, there remains little hope for the birthers.

    US Citizen:
    Jah-eez!!

    When will you birthers learn?
    It doesn’t matter about the birth certificate.
    It could be scribbled on a napkin, etched on a pop tart with a laser beam or peed in the sand on the beach.
    The BC…. the paper, the certificate, the form itself… is meaningless.

    It’s the INFO that’s important: Where and when Obama was born.
    So far, all or most copies say August 1961 in Hawai’i.
    Why the birther train hasn’t stopped to consider what’s around the next bend is why this is all so ridiculous.

    Ok, birthers…let’s say that there actually was a court case where the court AGREED a BC was a forgery.
    Da Da!!
    Happy now birthers? Think you’ve finally won?
    Well…sorry, no, because you would be left with a situation you couldn’t overcome.

    Consider: you’ve just proven a document as a forgery, but the INFO on it remains uncontested.
    No one has provided any evidence of any other date or place of birth for Obama.

    For that matter, you’ve not even offered any evidence who forged the document.
    You’ve provided no DNA, fingerprints or other material evidence.
    For all a judge knows, you yourselves could have drawn it up during lunch at McDonald’s.

    So what difference would any of this make?
    None, because it’s the information ON the birth certificate that’s important.
    If it’s not accurate,the entire case is actually against the health dept of Hawai’i, not Obama.
    They’re the officials swearing under penalty of perjury the info is accurate.
    Obama doesn’t have the ability to add or change the HDOH’s records.
    All he’s provided us is what the HDOH provided him.

    So here’s all this talk about birth certificates and not a bit about any evidence against the HDOH.
    This is one of the reasons birthers are so dumb.
    They’re out thinking they’re clever chasing clues like little Sherlock Holmes, but all the while are forgetting that the buck stops at the official word of the HDOH.
    It doesn’t matter what cases they win. (so far, zero.)
    They can’t prove a negative and innocence is assumed unless proven otherwise.
    With not a shred of countering evidence, somehow the birthers have overlooked how impossible it would be to obtain discovery with HIPAA laws.
    What court in the world would take zero evidence over officially certified state evidence?
    None. (again.. so far, zero.)
    Dumb birthers.

    There is just no evidence beyond the foolish ‘analysis’ of some self appointed ‘experts’ that the birth certificates are fraudulent. Of course, I do not believe any self respecting expert would have argued that the birth certificate was fraudulent. At best the argument would be that the highly compressed pdf shows artifacts that can be explained through the simple observations of the fact of compression.

    We have not just the documents but verification and certification of the information. The end… Although for some birthers, hope lives eternally… And when hope is squashed, they are quick to accuse the judges.

    Well, it must have taken a little bit of expertise to understand these artifacts but somehow, these ‘experts’ appear to have ignored the most obvious explanations. The issue has been settled ever since the documents were released but that does not prevent some from foolishly jumping on board to try to smear the president.

    Highly compressed – Rather than taking up 30-40MB the document is a few hundred KB. That’s highly compressed.

    nbc: THe problem with this argument, is that we have real statements by those who have seen the document, that the documents are real, and match those on file. By any legal standard, this raises the bar significantly.

    The document was scanned, and highly compressed, but it shows all the relevant data, the stamp/signature and the seal, there has been at least one photograph of the document, and there have been B&W copies. I see nothing significant beyond the fact that combined with all the official statements, there remains little hope for the birthers.

    luckily for us you don’t set the agenda. savannah was a bad girl that day… she broke the rule and disrespected the process, which the whitehouse always wanted, imo. les kinsolving couldn’t have gotten away with that, so there’s one thing. didn’t you hear Helen Thomas objecting to the whitehouse passing out the questions before the briefings ?? lol it’s on youtube, somewhere…

    I said that the neutral experts said that the pdf is consistent with a scan of an actual document. They did not make any assessment of whether anything was “real.” They know that it is ridiculous to make an assessment about the integrity of a document by looking at a pixelated image of it.

    I won’t comment on reproducing the same scanning effects. I haven’t paid attention to that part of the birfer argument. But I do know that the fact that something cannot be replicated does not mean that it is impossible. There is no other person in the world who looks just like me, but yet here I am. I exist.

    scott e: funny how we can’t call it fake but you all can call it real. as far as I know, no one has has been able to reproce that haunting image as a simple scan. that’s highly significant.

    nbc: Well, it must have taken a little bit of expertise to understand these artifacts but somehow, these ‘experts’ appear to have ignored the most obvious explanations. The issue has been settled ever since the documents were released but that does not prevent some from foolishly jumping on board to try to smear the president.

    Highly compressed – Rather than taking up 30-40MB the document is a few hundred KB. That’s highly compressed.

    scott e: the issue has been settled for you, we the birthers are still waiting. is that the full spectrum of compression ??

    Well, the issue has been settled, what remains is explaining the artifacts in the highly compressed pdf. Birthers are not just waiting, they are making assertions which are foolish, poorly informed and better explained by understanding the processes involved.

    You pretend that the birthers are the more reasonable ones because they have not taken any position. Hilarious… Have you listened to the birthers lately? Many myths have now become ‘facts’ such as the fact that the birth certificate is fraudulent…

    Logic and reason are not their strongest capabilities but then again, when you come to the table hating our President, the outcome can be quite biased.

    The facts are that there is no credible evidence of fraud, that the documents are prima facie evidence, and that at various times, the information on these documents has been verified, pointing to President Obama’s birth on US soil.

    The end.

    Of course, now the follies have moved towards selective services documents and SSN… Fascinating…

    It should be clear to anyone that the creation of a PDF from any document can be achieved through many different workflows.
    Furthermore, preview is infamous for reformatting the objects, removing many of the hints as to earlier workflow.
    Once one realizes the magnitude of the compression involved, one can try to understand the consequences of such compression on how the document appears.

    So far most of the ‘experts’ have failed miserably in this area.

    I have been hoping to revisit some of these issues in more detail but at present I am having too much fun with “subject to jurisdiction” arguments debunking the Vattel approach to citizenship in the US.

    I just emailed les a couple of weeks ago, haven’t spoken with him in a couple of years, but I will try to call him soon. I want to get his perspective looking back. he is a lovely man, a minister at his church, I don’t even know if he is still in the briefing room, he was only there a couple of days a week back then.

    he said they ignored him. he told me gibbs was bad, but carney was worse.

    so i’ll try to get in touch with him and let you know. he’s been in that room since Nixon, and when I talked to him was the second senior reporter in the white house.

    I made a video back then called “one lone voice”, which clearly shows gibbs dodging lester’s questions, and the 0bama reporters trying to drown out les.

    Preview doesn’t do file compression Dolt !

    Preview’s main utility is that it can open various graphic file types including TIFF, PNG, JPEG as well as PDF files and do simple editing.

    If the WH LFCOLB PDF was subjected to PDF file compression then it had to have been by means some other software with compression capability applied to a pre-existing PDF file which pre-existed the compressed PDF file.

    Any graphics software with comprehensive compression capability would likely also have the same or better capabilities as Preview.

    Hence there would be no reason (other than to strip the pre-existing METADATA from the PDF file) to open the compressed file in Preview.

    Thinker:
    Joe: You won’t find a qualified expert who draws the conclusion that Obama’s birth certificate is real based on an analysis of the pdf because every qualified expert knows that one cannot judge the integrity of a document by looking at a pdf of it. Birfers don’t get that. What the qualified experts have said is that the pdf on the White House web site is consistent with a scan of an actual document. That’s all a qualified expert would ever testify to if they haven’t examined the actual document.

    And let’s not forget, not everyone with a bit of technical knowledge and an opinion is a qualified expert. Certainly Karl Denninger, Doug Vogt, and the rest of the birfoon “experts” would not qualify as experts in court because they were birfers before they became “experts.” They are clearly not neutral. Their experience probably wouldn’t qualify them as experts anyway, but there’s no reason to get into their technical knowledge when their bias is so obvious.

    They have opinions. They are free to express them. And the world is free to ignore them.

    and, given your statements, there is no one qualified to determine the validity of the document unless they are qualified to render opinions in court.

    And, of course, qualified experts never differ in their opinions do they?

    Is it always the birthers opinions that are in error, or is just flat out bigotry by the postings.

    One thing I do know is that they never challenge the evidence , just say that the person is not qualified, and never submit a qualified expert to dispute the evidence.

    Just ignore and attack!

    It is a trivial fact that PDF optimize saves the text at twice the resolution of the background. I thought I had already explained this to you.

    And the scaling factors also help understand the original DPI.

    Surely you must be aware of this?

    Saynomorejoe: look at it and try to find any of the DPI changes in the BC.

    You apparent don’t realize this is not a pdf but a photograph. They are totally different and one would not expect them to be treated the same by the compression software. The fact is that the reason Mixed Raster Content compression was created in the first place was to deal with the compression of documents like the President’s LFBC, a document with both text, graphics and images.

    Saynomorejoe: Look at it and try to find kerning.

    Look at the child’s first name “Edith”. The “E” and the “d” are touching each other and the gap between “i” and “t” is larger than normal and the “t” and the “h” are touching.

    Look at the child’s middle name “Pauline”. The “n” and the “e” are touching each other

    Look at the child’s last name “Coats”, the space between the “a” and “t” is to large and the “t” and “s” are touching.

    Look at box 2 the word “Female” the “ema” are squeezed together.

    Look at box 12b the word “Army”, the “m” is nestle in the “y”.

    Look at box 7f the word “Company”, the “n” is nestled in the “y”.

    Look at box 6c the word “Hospital”, the “t” and “a” are touching.

    Look at box 13 the mother’s name “Maria Margaret” the “M” an “a” are touching in both names “Maria” and “Margaret”.

    Saynomorejoe: As to the faint word, simple, inserted later from a different typewriter with an old ribbon in it.

    So you are saying that some information was typed up (before the birth?) and the document was then reinserted into a typewriter to add additional information (after the birth?). Cool, that would certainly explain different tab stops wouldn’t it.

    Plus how do you know that “Old Plantation Road” is a different tab stop and not the same tab stop and with an extra space?

    Joe: Many of the people here enjoy the anomaly hunting and understanding how the compression algorithms work. However, don’t mistake what is really a parlor game with actual stuff that matters. If Barack Obama is required to prove where he was born, he will submit a certified copy of the COLB to whatever authority requires it. The authority would accept it based on the Full Faith and Credit Clause of the Constitution. The validity of the COLB could probably only be successfully challenged if Alvin Onaka himself disavowed it, which we all know is not going to happen.

    Pixels and layers and halos in the pdf of the long form do not matter at all. There is no future in this for birfers. Neither the law nor the facts are on their side.

    Saynomorejoe
    One thing I do know is that they never challenge the evidence , just say that the person is not qualified, and never submit a qualified expert to dispute the evidence.

    The things that amuses me the most in all the Birfoon fascination, nay obsession around the pdf is just how irrelevant it all is.

    They really need to commit to memory the phrase, “The map is not the territory”.

    The PDF is NOT the BC, it is an image, a representation, an leectronic, easily distributed, legally insufficient picture of the real BC.

    Their inability to grasp this simple fact leads to all the other insane pathologies that included the particularly asinine one that still gets trotted out about how by changing the image in some manner, it invalidates the original.

    Or how in some magical way the HDoH handed out (how is never explained) a PDF as opposed to the actual physical hard copy.

    Or how the CONTENT has been verified as correct on multiple occassions by the custodians of the original.

    Still it keeps me amused watching the ever more complex contortions Birfoons tie themselves up into whenever they trot out their talking points of stupidity.

    Lani: The defense did not participate in the hearing, so it could not submit the certificate into evidence.
    Whether or not it was attached to a letter outside of the hearing doesn’t change anything.
    Even if things were as Orly states (and they rarely are), she has trouble understanding the best evidence rule.

    The defense maintains that the Obama LFCOLB PDF is a scanned (but not certified) duplicate copy of one of the two certified copies that Obama received from Fuddy on Apr. 25, 2011. Therefore it is their contention that the PDF copy is not a forgery. Under this scenario, the best evidence rule would apply and Obama would be obligated to provide the certified copies instead of the scanned copies.

    It has always been Taitz’s legal claim that the Obama LFCOLB PDF image is a forgery. Hence she has raised a legal issue as to the existence of an original hospital generated LFCOLB.

    Whenever a legal issue is raised concerning the authenticity of a document produced to the court, neither party to the law suit is supposed to request that the court take judicial notice of the document in question.

    Taitz has objected to the MDEC attorneys submitting the Obama LFCOLB PDF image to the court as proof of Obama’s birth in Hawaii.

    The fact that Obama’s attorneys have also associated the scanned copies of the Obama LFCOLB with the letter correspondence (between Obama and Fuddy) which support the request and acquisition of the two certified copies (without also providing a chain of custody between the scanned copies and the two certified copies) is a clear violation of the best evidence rule.

    A quote from the IvanZatkovichforensic report:

    “HowHawaiiproducesthe“Greencopy”ofaBirthCertificate

    “ArepresentativeoftheHawaiiDepartmentofHealthdescribedhowthecopyofthe
    ObamaBirthCertificatewasproduced.ShestatedthatthecopyofObama’sbirth
    certificatewasproducedbytakingtheoriginalpaperbirthcertificate,whichwasblack
    printingonwhitepaper.Theoriginalisthenplacedonthephotocopymachineandthat

    signedbytheStateRegistrar.

    “ThatHawaiiDepartmentofHealthstatedthattheyhadnothingtodowithproducingthe
    PDF,anddirectedmetotheWhiteHouseforallsuchquestions.”

    So let’s see the two certified copies in a court of law.

    I was going to put this in the open thread, but this seems like an appropriate conversation to dump it into.

    I am watching the TV show Newsroom S1.E9 as I type this. The nerdy guy is trying to develop a story about internet trolls by by slandering one of the female newsreaders all over the internet so he can earn his way into some Trollers Hall of Fame website .

    Once upon a time, the trolls visiting this site seemed to be working tag teams. One would pop up, regurgitate for week, and disappear, only to be immediately replace by another. Roves recent remarks about funding internet misinformation campaigns and the disappearance of the tag teams propose their own answer to some of those ‘events’.

    But what about now? What do the trolls get out of keeping up this nonsense? Is it really just some scheme to score points in some weird nerdy trolling game? I don’t know, because I don’t inhabit those realms.

    Some of these folks appear to be genuinely… um… “special”, they hang out all over the place with consistently weird BS. Others seem to be sane, but their willful ignorance is transparently fake.

    I think that it is evil to publish books that engage in character assassination and to collect money while not disclosing where it goes, or to collect money under the pretense that it will result in something that has no chance of happening.

    Loren Collins wrote a very good book, Bullspotting. and The Fogbow collects donations that go to purchasing court transcripts for public access. There’s no evil or misrepresentation there. Of course, I don’t accept donations and I don’t sell anything.

    On the political Forum He simply resorted to filling up dozens of threads with the same crap that people had already debunked, over and over and over till he had the entire Misc conspiracy forum filled up with them. I think he kept starting birther threads and the mods simply moved them into the equivalent of the wastepaper bin without comment. He also pretty much was seem by everyone as melting down over the last few months as he became increasingly erratic.

    Then, when everyone was sick of him and no-one responded to his crap threads anymore, he declared that he had scared everyone off and somehow won.

    You never did provide an instance where Obama’s attorney associated the Fuddy letter with the birth certificate. It MIGHT have happened in the Atlanta case, but you didn’t provide a link to such document, and I didn’t find it.

    However, there is a fundamental mistake here. At the Atlanta trial, the Defense didn’t even show up, and so no evidence was presented at that trial, best or otherwise. I would point out, however, that the Plaintiff’s in one of those consolidated cases submitted the White House PDF as evidence that Barack Obama’s father was not a US Citizen. That actually was submitted at the trial. So in some context, both sides sent copies of the same long form certificate, neither raising “best evidence” objections.

    The Georgia case was a special situation in which the rules of evidence are different (because it was an administrative law court that is authorized to hear evidence that wouldn’t be admissible in superior court). So in that special situation, “best evidence” doesn’t apply. And of course, in no other case did Obama’s attorneys submit a birth certificate.

    Finally, the Georgia case is closed. There is no active case at trial, and without a trial, you can’t apply a rule of “best evidence” either.

    So in summary, there was never any situation where the birth certificate should have been presented by the President under a “best evidence” argument. Now, will you engage my argument, or ignore it and change the subject like a typical birther?

    Hermitian: The fact that Obama’s attorneys have also associated the scanned copies of the Obama LFCOLB with the letter correspondence (between Obama and Fuddy) which support the request and acquisition of the two certified copies (without also providing a chain of custody between the scanned copies and the two certified copies) is a clear violation of the best evidence rule.

    Scott singlehandedly keeps the Birther candle lit at Politicalforum- it is clearly a bizarre obsession with him. In essence most days he is talking to himself- posting in dead Birther threads hoping to get someone to bite.

    He is practically giddy right now because he has a thread that people are responding to.

    Oh and my favorite Birther thread “Were Birthers nutjobs”- which started with a coherant post by a conservative who was dipping his toe in Birtherism….but the pro-birther posts that followed clearly demonstrated to any rational person- yes Birthers are nutjobs- I mean most of them are frothing at the mouth nutjobs- willing to lie, cheat and smear for their cause.

    Care to actually transalate this into English..?

    imho, all within the margin of corruption, ergo, the controversy and giving birth to the theory of conspiracy arena

    Define “margin of corruption”
    Define “theory of conspiracy arena”

    Place in context of the point I wrote around idiots in Birerstan who cannot grasp the simple factual statement the “the map is not the territory”.

    Place in context that a PDF is not a BC anymore than the picture “The Mona Lisa” is not the actual person.

    Place in context that the material content of the BC has been confirmed as wholly accurate by the custodians of record at the HDoH

    m of c usually refers to voting.

    theory of the conspiracy arena mean that in this arena, theory doesn’t have to be strictly empirical, hence/therefore it’s “theory”.

    this website flies under the flag of conspiracy theory.

    They did not submit the pdf as proof that Obama was born in Hawaii. They originally included it because a copy that Taitz herself had submitted to the court was illegible (because she’s too stupid to figure out how to save a Word document as a pdf so she prints and scans everything every time she needs a pdf). They then submitted to the court a verification from the State of Hawaii saying that the information on the pdf matches the information on Obama’s birth certificate on file in Hawaii. They did not claim the pdf is proof of anything.

    While I have no inside information on this, I suspect that part of the reason the MDEC lawyers even bothered to submit a legible version of what Taitz herself submitted is precisely to bait her to submit frivolous motions based on it so that Judge Wingate can see that she’s a vexatious moron who is abusing the court system.

    As long as Alvin Onaka stands behind Obama’s birth certificates, the birfer “evidence” that the pdf is a forgery is not anywhere near what would be required for a court to accept that it introduces the possibility that that Hawaii does not possess a birth certificate that says Barack Obama was born in Hawaii. She had the chance to prove that the pdf is a forgery in her Georgia trial. She failed, spectacularly and hilariously.

    I think she should dedicate her time to encouraging the US military to overthrow the federal government, a topic on which she has posted a couple of times over the past day or so, because that demonstrates, beyond any reasonable doubt, that she is an America-hating fascist.

    Hermitian:
    Taitz has objected to the MDEC attorneys submitting the Obama LFCOLB PDF image to the court as proof of Obama’s birth in Hawaii.

    I find the rather selective outrage to be fairly hypocritical Scott.

    The very slimey Snooky at PF makes all sorts of outlandish claims and lies- and you cheer him on.

    He said that “it is very likely that Obama …{fill in with usual Birther slander of Obama}.

    I said in response “it is very likely that Birthers are foreign agents of Iran”.

    Do I think you or any Birther is a provacateur for Iran? I think it is as likely as any Birther claim- which is to say- no I don’t believe it.

    You will notice I am not jumping in on the Benghazi issue- that is because I am waiting to hear more- what I do think is just pure Birther drivel is to equate the Birther lunacy with Benghazi.

    It is possible that Obama screwed up in Benghazi. It is possible that he or his administration was trying to cover things up. Depending on what comes out, I am more than willing to condemn any action that he or his administration was culpable for.

    The Benghazi smells of political partisanship- but there are reasonable people who are asking legitimate questions about Benghazi.

    You hope Birthers will get invited to ride on the back of the Benghazi bus, but the Conservatives will skitter away from Birther nutjobs, regardless of whatever happens regarding Benghazi

    Dr. Conspiracy: and I KNOW from experience that color printers can sometimes render colors quite badly.

    Particularly in case of vector graphics constructed with RGB (additive) colors, which is typically the default. Printing involves translating the additive RGB palette to the subtractive CMYK palette, a process that will alter colors. The gamuts overlap, but neither is a subset of the other. Pure colors are particularly affected. RGB (Red Green Blue!) has no trouble representing green and blue distinctly. Shades of blue and green produced by a CMYK printer are primarily cyan, which simply isn’t the same. CMYK can combine to produce approximations of every hue around blue—aqua, purple, indigo, teal—but never a pure blue. Cyan, Yellow, and blacK do make pretty decent greens.

    The printer’s ink/toner levels, and operating condition of the printer are also factors.

    When scanning, it’s all about white balance.

    Printing, and then scanning, are both translations. It isn’t a question of whether the colors will be altered, but a question of how much.

    I don’t think lawyers have time to trek to a service bureau to have the prints proofed just to address the unreasonable and ill-informed faux concerns of online nutcases.

    Not that Herms wants to risk educating himself, but Googling “RGB vs CMYK” would be a great start.

    believe in their leaders until their leaders are proven to be bad leaders, and even then they mourn the demise of their leaders.

    Here we have people that believe some things are impossible to accomplish, and then they get suprised when those things are shown to have been done.

    A BC is considered truthful because some one attested to it, and certified that a copy was correct, and then refuse to believe that the original bc was false. Remember the California case , Bustamante Xlll, where the certified bc was shown to be false.

    And the response here was that occured because if was a late filing, and would never happen with a regular filing. And all ignored the OIG of HHS which reported that 50% of the state registrar said that birth certificate fraud was occuring in their office by their employees, and the result here was that it couldn’t be HDOH because they were not named as having it occured.

    Ignoring the 50% chance they were doing it.

    You believe what suits your beliefs and ignore all evidence that you claim has been debunked, and yet you can not show that any forensic document examiner has ever claimed it was not fake.

    You use the fact that a reported handle the document and claimed that proved it was OK , and yet you ignore that fact that the reporter may not have been qualified to descern fake from valid, as she was just a report.

    Your position on this is not ignorant, because you are not ignorant of the fact, it is pure and simple juvenile stupid, baiting; trying to play word games for no justification what-so-ever. It isn’t even entertaining.

    Disputing that using the word ‘matches’ as in ‘x matches y’ is not a ‘verification’ that x is the same value as y is below juvenile. Hawai’i said the contents of the published documents ‘matches’ the contents of the records in their files. Every individual data item (that was asked for) separately, and the document as a whole (which includes all data items, even those that were not specifically asked for). That is verification. 100% verification. And they did it twice.

    Apart from the fact that this isn’t true, you still have the burden of proof. If the HDOH attests to the validity of the BC, you need to find a forensic document examiner (not a self-proclaimed “expert”) who claims it is a fake, not the other way around.
    Remember that *no* President has ever had a forensic document examiner claim his BC was not fake. And don’t give me the “nobody ever doubted any other President” line. Because that’s the most obvious confirmation that only the black guy raises concern with you.

    Now now, remember that our friend Saynomorejoe is somewhat confused about the constitution so do not hold him to rules of evidence.

    Keith: Ever since you chickened out of the debate on RC, and then tried to cover your cowardice with ‘ see how I punked them guys ‘ you have been exposed as nothing but the center target on the north end of a south bound mule, and your participation on the internet is not for the sake of honest discussion, but for the sake of sensationalizing your readers response and drawing their ridicule.

    It was actually “scott e” who chickened out of the debate. That said, troll Joe is not worth any time either.

    That’s pretty much what he’s wanted all along. Now he can believe himself a martyr.

    Huh. I actually thought I WAS talking to “scott e” when I wrote that.

    Nah, I’ve never seen “Joe” (not his usual nom de plume) play the martyr. At least not in reference to his treatment at any given site. He’s just bored.

    More “birther” evidence —I apologize if this has already been posted..

    OBAMA’S KENYAN BIRTH RECORDS DISCOVERED
    IN BRITISH NATIONAL ARCHIVES WHERE LIES GO TO DIE
    Evidence discovered shows British Protectorate of East Africa recorded Obama’s birth records before 1963
    and sent returns of those events to Britain’s Public Records Office and the Kew branch of British National Archives.
    By Dan Crosby of The Daily Pen

    (Editors note: The records eluded to in this story were discovered through a May, 2012 search through BMD Registers, a BNA partner site, using the search term “Obama”. Corroborating evidence through public sources only implicates the identity of those involved but does not explicitly prove their identity in the absence of the availability of original documents.)

    KEW, SURREY, GB – The last place anyone would think to look for a birth record of someone claiming to be a “natural born” U.S. citizen is Great Britain. The very inclusion of the Article II eligibility mandate in the U.S. Constitution was explicitly intended by the founding fathers of America to prevent a then British-born enemy usurper from attaining the office of the U.S. presidency and thereby undermining the sovereignty of the newly formed nation.

    In the absence of honor, courage and justice on the part of those serving in the U.S. Congress and Federal Judiciary, Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s Cold Case investigative group has concluded the only law enforcement analysis of the image of Obama’s alleged “Certificate of Live Birth” posted to a government website in April, 2011 and found it to be the product of criminal fraud and document forgery.

    The seeming endless evidence against Obama has now taken investigators to the foreign archives of Great Britain wherein it has been discovered that vital events occurring under the jurisdiction of the British Colony in the Protectorate of East Africa prior to 1965 were recorded and held in the main office of the British Registrar in England until 1995 before being archived in the BNA.

    It now appears the worst fears of the U.S. Constitution’s framers were well founded as investigators working on behalf of the ongoing investigation into the Constitutional eligibility of Barack Obama have found yet another lead in a growing mountain of evidence within the public records section of the British National Archives indicating the occurrence of at least four vital events registered to the name of Barack Obama, taking place in the British Protectorate of East Africa (Kenya) between 1953 and 1963, including the birth of two sons before 1963.

    Recall, investigative journalists working for Breitbart.com have already discovered biographical information published by Barack Obama’s literary agent in which he claimed he was born in Kenya. Prior to Obama’s ensconcement to the White House, many international stories also stated that Obama was Kenyan-born as did members of Kenya’s legislative assembly. Since then information on Obama’s ties has been curtailed by government officials as the Obama administration has coincidently paid nearly $4 billion dollars for capital projects in Kenya.

    I don’t know if it has been posted here before but it is not new. The fact that they cannot produce an image of any of these documents or proof that they exist has been pointed out time and again. The Daily Pen has been found to not be the most of reliable website.

    There are excellent reasons why ORYR and Daily Pen are in the Ugly Section at the bottom of the page.

    Their steaming piles of paranoia fueled online dung are nothing more than truly idiotic, easily debunked and outright ludicrous birther bigot lies and asinine political smear attempts from cretins with a whole lot more spare time than common sense.

    This was mentioned some time ago. The records in the discussion are the records that were transferred to London at the end of the colonial period. Colonial administrators transferred a large amount of government papers to London in error because they wanted to make sure there wasn’t anything embarrassing to Her Majesty’s Government.

    They sat, sort of lost, in a storage room someplace for 50 years because nobody could decide who they should belong to. They should have been left in Kenya (or Cyprus or Malaysia, whereever they came from), Archives didn’t want them, Foreign Office didn’t want to admit they had them.

    Then they released them in 2012, setting up a committee under Cambridge academic Tony Badger to curate them.

    ‘Lost’ colonial papers made public

    I personally spoke to Tony Badger when he was in Australia with the Cambridge choir last year and asked him if they had found any evidence of a Barack Obama birth certificate. The answer was an unequivocal NO. He said they did have the records of his father’s flight to the USA for study, but no birth certificate nor evidence of an Obama Jr. birth.

    When I reported this conversation to WND, they backed off the story so fast it would make your head swim.
