Feature: Intro to birthers

I’ve added a new item to the Features menu: “Intro to birthers.” I realized that some people arrive to the story late and may not know what birthers are about, so I wrote a brief outline and history.

It will probably be enlarged in the future.

    “and may not know what birthers are about,”

    Our new community is heavily “conservative” with many far right wing and some pretty wacky Libertarians as well.

    On a local forum yesterday, while discussing the Hobby Lobby case before SCOTUS, I asked one of the posters if he was also a birhter (cuz he was really ignorant on a lot of issues).

    Not only he, but almost every other person on the form asked “what is a birther?” LOL

    After giving a brief explanation, it was about 50/50 as to those who had heard of them and 100% coining them “conspiracy theory nuts”, “idiots”, and a couple of “are they still around? I thought that was over long ago.”

    And this among a group of very politically-active people.

    Yeah, birthers are a HUGE movement. But not the type of movement they think. ;)

    Still , lots of name calling but not one of you has ever explained why Obama has a stolen social security number and a poorly forged birth certificate. When you can offer a non fairy tale explanation then we can move on to Obama’s own literary bio from 1981 when he himself claimed to have been born in Kenya. Funny you extreme lefties were so curious of the past of George Bush you counterfeited his military records but have not a bit of curiosity in the fraud that is Obama.

    Why do you think “Obama himself” made such a claim. The person who wrote the bio said the information wasn’t from Obama. Do you believe something contrary to all evidence out of some kind of need? Please explain.

    Obama’s birth certificate isn’t forged. The State of Hawaii has verified its contents.

    realist: Yeah, birthers are a HUGE movement. But not the type of movement they think.

    We should have perhaps realized when Birthers began their quests with idiotic premises and transparently false allegations, that the lunatic aspect of their activities was what they were talking about when they kept ignoring 100′s of legal losses and said, “THIS is NOT going away!”

    Birthers are more of an unchanging social sediment born of extremism and racism, than a, “movement”; they are unmoving in almost every way that is necessary, to being a patriotic citizen, protecting the Constitution instead of walking all over it in an attempt to vent your hatred on a political opponent.

    They are an off-shoot of right wing extremism, so off that they can’t get most of that crowd to join them in their lunacy and end up branding their own political cousins, “traitors”.

    I do see them as the end product of a movement, but that would be a bowel movement.

    Nothing but birther wet dreams.

    Any credible evidence of the above allegations would be greatly appreciated. All credible evidence is to the contrary. Since birthers are the accusers, they bear the burden of proof. To date there is not even evidence, much less proof.

    Sorry Seamus. As Judge Clay Land so aptly put it… This is not Alice in Wonderland. Saying it’s so does not make it so.”

    That’s all birthers have done… Said so. They have produced not even a scintilla of evidence for those claims, much less proof nor established any facts of same.

    You (and all birthers) have a gross misunderstanding of what evidence is, much less credible evidence. When you have something that meets the criteria of evidence, get back to us. Until then, thanks for playing.

    No actual expert has said that.

    Hawaii has never authenticated the birth certificate Obama out.

    The State of Hawaii has repeatedly and expressed said President Obama was born in Hawaii. It’s on the Hawaii Department of Health’s web site. The State of Hawaii sent verifications to two states’ Secretaries of State, who were satisified by the vertifcations.

    On Obama’s bio, where did literRy agent get information Obama was born in Kenya ?

    Who knows; the main point is President Obama’s agent admitted to supplying the wrong information.

The pure facts have Obama using a stolen social security number and a poorly fabricated birth certificate; both absolute facts. As an id and records specialist for The Ct .

It is the most often discussed case of identity fraud and assume it is all over the country. You will not find one law enforcement document examiner anywhere in our country to validate his documents. Not one, no where. This is the quietest great crime in the history of our country. Believe me , eventually the truth of this fraud will be revealed , it is far to obvious to prove he is a fraud .

    Seamus: It is a fact Obama has a stolen Connecticut social security number

    There is no such thing as a Connecticut social secuirty number. SSN are centrally issued by the feds. Even when they did use a 3 digit geographic code, it was never written in stone that the number bore a 100% association with residence. Furthermore, if it is a fact it was stolen, you should have no trouble telling us from whom it was stolen. The “fact” is, birthers have no evidence that it was stolen. The “fact” is, if it was stolen, he wouldn’t have been able to file his tax return using it year, after year, after year….long before he was president, senator, state rep, or “community organizer”…you know…back when he had no power to prevent getting locked up for tax fraud.

    Seamus: It is a fact that his birth certificate is a fraud. Simple forensic examinations shows layered computer counterfeit.

    You wouldn’t know a forensic examination if it bit you in the backside. Reality is the only real experts to have examined it have stated there is no evidence of tampering and examining a pdf is pretty much a waste of time, because you can’t prove jack with it.

    Seamus: Hawaii has never authenticated the birth certificate Obama out.

    Actually they have repeatedly. That, and they have also repeated confirmed all the facts on it (repeatedly), and filed certified documents with courts confirming those facts. Why would someone forge a document using the exact information that appears on the original? Just because you don’t like the facts doesn’t mean you can wish them away.

    Seamus: On Obama’s bio, where did literRy agent get information Obama was born in Kenya ? Did he just see he was black and guess Kenya ?

    How should I know? Perhaps you should ask her. Entirely plausible she spoke with him, took bad notes, and connected father born in Kenya with him being born in Kenya. Who cares? There are several publications predating that bio stating he was born in Hawaii.

    Seamus: The simple facts are there and you on the extreme left can not defend or make excuses to explain the fraud Obama, you have to use Alinsky rules to attack those who show clearly the lies .

    There is only one person who clearly lies here…you’ll find him the next time you look in the mirror. There’s a reason why no one takes birthers seriously….it’s because your “evidence” is a joke.

    If any of Seamus’ silly charges were true, don’t you think that the Republicans who are in the majority in the House of Representatives would have held at least one congressional hearing on the President’s Social Security card or his birth certificate? Congress has not spent a single minute on any of those allegations.

    If the 1991 Literary Agent’s bio for Barack Obama was not just an error, why do you think that the major newspapers in the U.S. Such as the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Chicago Tribune and the Los Angeles Times all ran stories about Barack Obama being elected Presiden of the Harvard Law Review in 1990, a year before the publisher’s bio, which all said that Barack Obama was born in Hawaii?

    Don’t believe it? Here are links to the New ayork Times article from 1990 and the LA Times article from 1990. Read them and weep:
    http://www.nytimes.com/1990/02/06/us/first-black-elected-to-head-harvard-s-law-review.html

    http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/thedailymirror/2008/09/barack-obama-ha.html

    The Los Angeles Times’ March, 1990 article states: “His own upbringing is a blending of diverse cultures. BORN IN HAWAII where his parents met in college, Obama was named Barack, (“blessed” in Arabic) after his father. The elder Obama was among a generation of young Africans who came to the United States to study engineering, finance and medicine, skills that could be taken back home to build a new, strong Africa. In Hawaii, he married Obama’s mother, a white American from Wichita, KS.”

    Well, no, he’s not really even correct about that. It’s a valid USA SSN. There is no such thing as a “Connecticut SSN.”

    There is a bit of non-binding inconsequential bureaucratic trivia that the prefix of Obama’s original SSN was usually, but not always, assigned to people who first filed for their SSN from Connecticut.

    How he or anyone else gets from there to it being stolen is a complete non-starter.

    Seamus: The pure facts have Obama using a stolen social security number and a poorly fabricated birth certificate

    I don’t think you know the meaning of the word “fact”

    Seamus: As an id and records specialist for The Ct . Dept. of Corrections with. 27 years experience; I actually train all other record specialists for the entire dept of corrections.

    Judging by the few statements you have made, I can feel pretty comfortable stating this is total b.s. Anyone who makes such postive statements based on a pdf, never having seen a physical document is nothing but a crackpot.

    Seamus: It is the most often discussed case of identity fraud and assume it is all over the country.

    Sure it is. That’s why only Joe Arpiao and his sidekick Zullo talk about it. It’s “the most often discussed case” no one actually talks about in public. Sure. That makes sense.

    Seamus: You will not find one law enforcement document examiner anywhere in our country to validate his documents.

    Of course not. Because no one worth their salt will validate a pdf of a document. You only validate the real paper document. That’s a no brainer. Paper document is another thing. That is prima facie evidence of the facts stated on it, that will hold up in any court of law in the US>

    Seamus: This is the quietest great crime in the history of our country.

    Yes, becuase all you “forensic document examiners” and law enforcement folks generally stay all quite when you know the crime of the century is being committed. Yeah…I can see that as being plausible. A country full of people sworn to uphold the law all know a great fraud is being committed on the country, but the only person to speak up is a sherrif in Arizona with a history of going after his enemies with bogus criminal investigations, who just happened to be under investigation by the feds….and even he can’t get a real court qualified expert to give him a supporting opinion.

    Seamus: Believe me , eventually the truth of this fraud will be revealed , it is far to obvious to prove he is a fraud .

    Any day now…..we’ve only been hearing that for 5 or 6 years now. But hey…keep hoping….any day now.

    Seamus: Why the media is not on this story is beyond my sense of truth and honor.

    I don’t think you have any sense of truth and honor.

    And the media isn’t on this story because they have a lot more sense than you. You have no evidence…in fact all the mountains of evidence … evidence that is actually admissible in court…points to the President being born in Hawaii. This isn’t a massive conspiracy of silence. You really have nothing to support your position. And even worse…not only is all your purported evidence of fraud bunk…you can’t even provide a single bit of court admissable evidence that the president was born anywhere but Hawaii.

So, yeah, she concocted BS about Bush in 2004, and four years later, she concocted BS about Obama.

You will not ever find a member of these two organizations validate the birth certificate, selective service registration or his social security number .

    Nope, not a fact. My ex-wife has a Pennsylvana SSN (210-xx-xxxx) but she has never lived or worked in Pennsylvania. It happens.

    If Obama’s SSN is stolen, who did he steal it from? And please feel free to provide whatever evidence you have.

    It is a fact that his birth certificate is a fraud. Simple forensic examinations shows layered computer counterfeit.

    The PDF has layers because it was saved as a PDF using a Xerox Workstation. The so-called anomalies in the PDF are not anomalies at all, once you know what office equipment was used.

    No birther forensic document examiner has examined the original document which the White House used to make the PDF, and none of Zullo’s “experts” are qualified to give testimony in court about their bogus opinions.

    Hawaii has never authenticated the birth certificate,

    Not only has it been authenticated to two state Secretaries of State, there is a link to it on the Hawaii Department of Health’s website.

    http://health.hawaii.gov/vitalrecords/faq-obama/

    On Obama’s bio, where did literRy agent get information Obama was born in Kenya ? Did hejust see he was black and guess Kenya ?

    First of all, the literary agent was a woman, which you would know if you bothered to use your supposed investigative skills. She never spoke to Obama, so she didn’t get the information from him. She probably was confused because Obama’s father, also named Barack Obama, was born in Kenya.

    No matter how improbable you find the life and accomplishments of Obama to be, the improbable is by definition more likely than the impossible, and therefore more believable.

    I agree that Obama’s story is improbable. He overcame many disadvantages, from an absentee father to a funny name and everything in between. But guess what, chuckles? On a long enough timeline, with enough iterations, “improbable” events do occur (Especially in America!).

    And double guess what? On a long enough timeline, “improbable” events will inevitably happen again.

    And again.

    And again!

    Particularly in when the probabilities are shifting over time.

    And triple guess what? Right now, the probabilities are shifting in favor of the next Obama. :P

These silly excuses of how Obama has a Connecticut s s I number or how his biographer guessed his country wrong or how he was listed as African American in 1961 , decades before the politically correct term was invented is very similar to the witnesses of Kim Jung Un ‘s 18 consecutive holes in one.

    Seamus… All hat and no cattle.

    Zullo and his clown “posse”
    Have not presented any evidence that leads to any fact of forgery. The only thing they’ve accomplished is to prove their incompetence. And that is a fact.

    No forensic document examiner has ever examined Obama’s documents, qualified or not. No one has seen them who claims forgery.

    Your idea of evidence and facts may be worse than Orly Taitz’s… And that says a lot. Though so are Zullo’s ideas of evidence and facts so it must be a birther thing.

    And once again, otherwise you are no longer worth any time… please present your evidence. And that is not anything Corsi, Orly, Zullo or anyone else has presented because the “evidence” they present is incompetent and would never pass must’ve in any court. Well, except Manning’s fake trial or a similar one.

    The alleged fact that someone was unable to illegally access President Obama’s social-security number doesn’t mean that it’s invalid. It just means that the public can’t access it.

    On the other hand, Obama has been using that social-security number on his income taxes with no problem, and the IRS checks that sort of thing.

    The Connecticut series is nothing more than a curiosity. Any number of people have numbers that don’t fit the return address scheme, probably due to clerical errors.

    Now here’s one for you. Law enforcement can verity social-security records (correct me if I am wrong on that). Has Arpaio reported that Obama’s SSN is bad? No.

    You don’t have evidence of anything except your own amateurish approach to proof.

    1. In order to enter Obama’s number into the E-Verify system, you have to be an employer of Obama, and Obama must have given you permission to do that by giving you employment documents such as a W-2. Mind showing me the W-2 that Obama gave you? What about your EIN? Mind telling me how much of Barack Obama’s salary you withheld in Social Security Tax for him?

    2. If you’re talking about the Self-Check, you have to agree that you’re only using this system to check yourself. You then have to answer multiple questions verifying your identity as the person you’re running it on which specifically have the word “You” in them. Tell me, are you Barack Hussein Obama? And if not, then why are you illegally using the e-verify self-check in order to access his records?

    Stolen from whom? Considering thatObama ha been filing his income tax with that number for three decades, I would think the SSA or the IRS would have said something about it by now. Especially when he started filing upper income tax returns from the sale of his books. Why have no alarm bells rung?

    Seamus: Like I said there is not a law enforcement records and forensic document expert in the country who has not run the Obama documents and there is not one who can validate the Obama documents. Not one.

    Of course not. Not one has had access to them and Obama has been placed under no obligation to submit them to an examiner.

    Seamus: There are no national trade groups of document examiners that set the standard that can validate the Obama documents.

    With out access to them, how could they? They certainly would not do so with just a PDF and more than two hundred of them have explained that to Zullo who still seems to think that he can invalidate a document based on a PDF file.

    No competent document expert would validate a picture of a paper document. (I believe RC once had such an expert on his radio show who said that.) They need to examine the paper document.

    As for the CT SSN, what happens if you misskey the zip? Anything? How about the zip 96814 as 06814?

    Feel free to send over some of your colleagues who have “run” Obama’s documents for serious academic discussions. Your research seems a bit flawed. (Examples — African American being on a document, 1981 being the date of the literary agent’s publication.)

    If Obama stole someone’s SSN, it should be easy enough for your law enforcement experts and forensic documents experts to tell us who he stole the SSN from. Give us a name and some evidence that someone other than Barack Obama has ever use that SSN. If you can.

    Because they’re not in the business of validating photocopies. That’s a no brainer. Hand them a paper copy with the raised seal, and you have another story. But than again, every single one passed on the opportunity to get paid to give an opinion on the documents. I wonder why? Oh yeah…because you don’t give opinions about photocopies of documents you’re trying to determine the validity of. That is reality.

    Seamus: The presentation by Mike Zullo on how these documents were forged is ample evidence and pure fact.

    The Mike Zullo presentaiton was a series of birther claims that had been debunked long before he made his first presser. Then he proceeded to give more pressers that contained “evidence” that was quickly proven to be misrepresented by him (the race codes from different years). But hey…feel free to rely on debunked b.s. of amatuers.

    Seamus: These silly excuses of how Obama has a Connecticut s s I number or how his biographer guessed his country wrong or how he was listed as African American in 1961 , decades before the politically correct term was invented is very similar to the witnesses of Kim Jung Un ‘s 18 consecutive holes in one.

    As been said…no such thing as a Connecticut ssn, we really don’t know why his biographer put him as born in Kenya, but it wasn’t the only error on the bio sheet (they put the wrong years for Newt’s tenture in congress), and the president’s race didn’t appear on the birth certificate (it was his father’s), it didn’t say African American, (it said African), and that would have been probably how he identified himself (and it was self reporting). It’s hard enough to take birthers seriously, but you cant even get the basic facts straight.

    Seamus: I get it that you extreme leftist a that this is your religon, but you are in for a big let down when you find out your emperor has no clothes on . Kind of like when you find out thst there is no Santa .

    There’s plenty of rock-solid documentation for that, if you could be bothered with it. Tons of it now. But you’re a birther, or a troll, or both, so…

    You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t give him the IQ of a real person.

Funny you extreme lefties were so curious of the past of George Bush you counterfeited his military records but have not a bit of curiosity in the fraud that is Obama.

    Maybe because he doesn’t have a “Stolen Social Security number”, and both his COLB and long form have been (repeatedly) verified as accurate by the State of Hawaii. Oh, and that nobody with any actual forensic document experience has ever said the COLB or long form images were “poorly done forgeries”

    But keep flogging the birther myths and lies.

    Let’s see:

    Seamus“It is a fact Obama has a stolen Connecticut social security number. No way around that.”

    Incorrect. It is a belief, based upon records from a source that states the information may not be correct, and provided from an “investigator” who is rather biased. No credible evidence has ever been provided to back this claim up.

    Seamus

    “It is a fact that his birth certificate is a fraud. Simple forensic examinations shows layered computer counterfeit.

    Again, opinion, not fact. No credible evidence has ever been provided to back these claims up. None of the “experts” who have made such a claim have forensic document experience or training. Several (such as “Techdude” and Ron Polland / “Polarik”) have flat out lied about their background and training. Other “experts” are a person who practices the pseudo-science of handwriting analysis, a copier salesman who writes about Pyramid Power and Mystery Spots, a retired typesetter who claimed an anonymous “Secret Service Agent” told him it was a forgery before it was released, and a former Hillary Clinton supporter who wrote books about Photoshop ten years ago.

    Seamus

    Hawaii has never authenticated the birth certificate Obama out.

    Seamus:
    The pure facts have Obama using a stolen social security numberand a poorly fabricated birth certificate; both absolute facts.

    Then you shouldn’t have any problems showing real and credible evidence from actual certified and trained forensic experts to back up these “pure facts”, correct?

    Seamus: As an id and records specialist for The Ct . Dept. of Corrections with. 27 years experience; I actually train all other record specialists for the entire dept of corrections. It is the most often discussed case of identity fraud and assume it is all over the country.

    For some strange reason, I get the very strong smell of bovine excrement reading this.

    After all, it’s not like birthers have a tendency to make up claims like this before (such as Ron Polland / Polarik claiming to be a forensic document specialist before it was found his background is a Ph.D. in “instructional media”

    Seamus: You will not find one law enforcement document examiner anywhere in our country to validate his documents. Not one, no where.

    Funny, the State of Hawaii, along with the Secretary of States for Arizona and Kansas, seemed to have no problems……

    Patrick McKinnion March 27, 2014 at 1:51 pm #

    Seamus:
    There are two document forensic professional standard associations that set the standard for All Law Enforcement ; N.A.D.E . And A.F.D.E. You will find that every member has run the Obama ducuments as pure curiosity and training. You will not ever find a member of these two organizations validate the birth certificate, selective service registration or his social security number . In fact this is the talk at every seminar and symposium .Eventually other professional document examiners will brave the political world and submitt independent findings thT fully support Mike Zullo. It is unanimous among forensic document examiners that Ovama is a fraud.

    And yet, curiously enough, none of those actual experts have come out and said anything of the sort, leaving the field wide open to a batch of uncertified, untrained, wannabe “experts”. If it was really as unanimous and widespread at these “seminars and symposiums” as you claim, then one would have expected SOMEONE to have spoken out in six+ years……

    Then again, considering you can’t even get the name of the organization that you claim to work at correct, one might come to the conclusion that you’re absolutely lying though your teeth.

    Actually this is an interesting example of birther inflation. “Seamus”:

    1) Makes the comment that it’s “pure fact” that President Obama’s documents are forgeries and that the State of Hawaii has never confirmed them.

    When it’s shown to be otherwise, he then goes to:

    2) A claim that he works for the “Ct. Department of Corrections” (not it’s real name) as a “id and records specialist”.

    Which is now inflated to the above claim.

    I expect “Seamus” will make more and more gracious and wild claims about his skill, background, training, etc., until people get tired of batting him around like a cat toy. At which point he’ll scuttle off to Birther Report or Free Republic to claim “victory”

    As Mr. Obama does NOT have a stole SS number or a fake birth certificate, there is no explanation needed.

    Dr. Conspiracy: Any number of people have numbers that don’t fit the return address scheme, probably due to clerical errors.

    I don’t believe that the assignment of numbers is via clerks. Logic dictates that since we are living in the actual age of computers, all clerks to is enter the application information into the digital system and sometime during the day, if not immediately, the computer assigns the number to the applicant. Last I checked, computers don’t make clerical errors, so if at the time Obama supposedly applied for the number, they were in fact assigned by computer based on zip code, then Obama has some ‘splainin to do if doubts are to be resolved.

    [Computers don't make clerical errors, but computers in 1977 relied on humans for data entry. Humans make data entry errors, like mis-keying a zip code. Are you really that dense? Doc.]

    bovril: Mike Zullo himself stated in a Gallups call in that he approached over 200 document forensic experts who all passed before he found a graphologist, Reed Hayes.

    You know, you really should give that fact some thought. You are aware that Zullo paid Reed his usual fee, right? His work wasn’t pro bono. So… why the heck did 200 other examiners turn down a paid assignment that came knocking on their door?

    Nobody turns down easy money when it is tied to the most crucial document known to man. Why they must have been out of their minds!

    No, they were very much IN their minds but very much feeling an awful dread about what they might find.

    Long ago I read about a physics researcher who was doing calculations regarding Space-Time. He eventually had to stop working on it because he reached the point where he felt he was “about to look over a wall into the face of God”.

    That was just the kind of fear that “persuaded” all of those many examiners to reject a most desirable assignment, Reed was the only one who felt no sense of concern and thus took it.

    [While I am not certain, I have read that Hayes went to Zullo, not the other way around. We only have Mike Zullo's word that 200 document analysts turned him down. And if the number is true, given the fact that there are very few experts in electronic documents, it's reasonable that most or all of them turned him down because he didn't have an original document. And of course WorldNetDaily hired three analysts (Pex, Broyhill and Zatkovich) to examine the long form with no difficulty (all found no problems).

    So you won't waste your time, I'm deleting most of your stuff on general principles, because you're banned from the site. Doc.]

    Seamus: JPotter, you will not find any trade group of forensic document examiners or any individual document examiner validate the Obama documents. Not one. That is not improbable , that is reality.

    Correct.

    But not because they find that the documents are suspicious.

    Its because they don’t have access to the appropriate documents to examine AND they have not been engaged to examine any appropriate documents that they can access. PDF’s are NOT appropriate for that examination.

    Since you seem to be able to breathe and type at the same time (yes, I am making a heap of assumptions there) I have to assume that you have enough ‘smarts’ to know the difference between a computer file containing an image of a document in PDF format and the original document itself.

    I therefore must conclude that you are either intellectually dishonest, a pathological attention seeker, or simply a shill for some dirty tricks shop that’s throwing you a bone every now and again.

    h2ooflife.wordpress.com/: While I am not certain, I have read that Hayes went to Zullo, not the other way around

    You may have read it when I posted it here once or twice.

    Zullo did a sit-down video interview with someone in which he mentioned:

    1. They had tried 212 experts of some sort or other (he might have been more specific than their being “document” experts, but I’m pretty sure that that was as specific as he got. I’m 99% sure he did _not_ call them “electronic document” experts) who turned them down.

    2. He considered it good luck that Hayes had come to them. I’m about 80% sure that he did _not_ say how. Maybe Hayes was working a case for Phoenix PD, and some detective said “You should talk to this guy Zullo: he thinks he’s on to something big”. Or maybe he was looking for movie times, and google changed his mistyped “Zorro” into “Zullo” because the name was in the news that day (shrug).

    3. Hayes was initially not going to get involved, but changed his mind after looking at (something which may, or may not, have been identified in the interview).

    I’m fairly certain I saw the video by following a link on youtube. And it probably would’ve been mid-to-late 2012, because he mentioned the “African Anachronism”. If anyone cares enough to fill in the fuzzy spots in my memory, I’d suggest starting the search there.
