[This article first appeared as a comment from me at Birther Report.]
For those who haven’t been following the story, Vogt’s now unsealed affidavit highlights all sorts of problems for birthers.
First, here is the Johanna Ah’Nee birth certificate for those who haven’t seen it. This came through Orly Taitz.
Notice that block 9, the Race of the Father is “Hawn-Caucasian-Chinese” with a penciled code of “3”. Block 14, the Race of the Mother is “Hawn-Caucasian-Korean” also coded “3”.
Birther Miki Booth vouches for the authenticity of this certificate [Jerome Corsi called it “authentic” too], but what does it do to the birthers? First Mike Zullo’s 1960/61 Race code table has code “3” meaning American “Indian,” which is not the same as “Hawn-Caucasian-Chinese.” Zullo also emphatically stated that the race codes on the forms were double-checked and error free. So either Zullo presented fake codes or the Ah’Nee certificate is a fake. There is no other alternative. (For reference, the real meaning for Code 3 in Hawaii was “Part Hawaiian.”)
The second problem is that birthers, since the beginning of time, have claimed that only a short list of values could appear on a birth certificate for Race, and certainly “Hawn-Caucasian-Korean” was NOT on that list. So birthers have been deeply mistaken about how race is recorded on birth certificates, or this certificate is a fake.
However, Miki Booth is firmly with Team Arpaio and represents that Zullo thinks the certificate is genuine.
On the other hand, Doug Vogt has this certificate numbering scheme he dreamed up to prove Obama’s certificate number is wrong. But again the Ah’Nee certificate totally contradicts the Vogt numbering scheme, and BOTH of them contradict the numbering scheme in Mike Zullo’s affidavit. Vogt of course, says that every certificate that contradicts his numbering scheme must be a forgery (if the evidence doesn’t fit the theory, discard it). This certificate dismantles ALL of the birther certificate numbering claims because Ah-Nee was born towards the end of the month, but has a certificate numbered way below Obama’s (and below the Nordyke’s).
Even those on Birther Report who like to make fun of the registrar’s signature on the Obama certificate, calling it “ukelele” are brought to heel by this certificate with the same signature.
So basically you have one story from Zullo, one story from Vogt and one story from Booth. No more than one of them can be true.
Booth is telling the truth. Zullo and Vogt just make stuff up.
Vogt has turned on Booth in a big way. What will Zullo do to cover up his fake evidence?
Stay tuned for the next episode of “As the Birther Turns.”
