Jay McKinnon [something] forging Obama COLB

According to an article in Israel Insider:

Jay McKinnon, a self-described Department of Homeland Security-trained document specialist, has implicated himself in the production of palpably fake Hawaii birth certificate images similar to the one endorsed as genuine by the Barack Obama campaign, and appearing on the same Daily KOS blog entry where the supposedly authentic document appears.

This article makes one strong point (which no one is really disputing): someone can fake an authentic looking Hawaiian COLB image using Photoshop that would easily fool the casual observer.

The misleading part of the story is that the writer makes the claim, by demonstrating certain document artifacts in common between his “blank birth certificate template” and the Obama image, that his template was the basis for Obama’s.  I haven’t flyspecked what McKinnon did, but it should be obvious to anyone that any argument that demonstrates that McKinnon’s template was used to create Obama’s image works equally well in showing that Obama’s image  was used to create McKinnon’s template.

McKinnon later admitted in a Daily Kos article entitled: Beyond a Reasonable Doubt, that the entire thing was a hoax made from the images released by the Obama campaign doctored with MS Paint.

    Keyes v. Lingle: Case Dismissed; Forensic Examiner Disproves Online COLB

    I’ve already talked about Sandra Lines and what she said and what she didn’t say. All she said is “you can’t rely on an image”.

    You know, Hawaii was the state that stood up for presidential qualifying at the state level. In 1968 the Peace and Freedom party tried to put Eldridge Cleaver on the ballot, even though he was only 33 years old. Hawaii refused and was taken to court, but prevailed.

    Didn’t know if you knew about Keyes v. Lingle being dismissed was the reason I posted. Will they just refile another one? That is their version of the dismissal, is there any more versions out there?

  4. Keyes is a co-plaintiff in the Mississippi suit. I don’t know how many of the lawsuits around the country are really just few people.

    I found this information!!!

    Scroll down to see the information on a recent ebay auction for Obama’s true birth certificate.

  6. nbc says:

    Fascinating. I wonder what will come out of this one. Given the money involved, I cannot but wonder…

  7. OH, how about this scenario…

    Some dude wins the ebay auction, and a Kenyan Birth Certificate thingy is presented. The buyer challenges its validity in court and Obama’s long-form is subpoenaed in the case.

    (Just joking)

    This coon is a fraud and needs to be replaced with a white nationalist leader who will rid our land of the Jew.

    I wrote an email to Jay McKinnon and told him he was a genius. He had punked the public and pwned the technology-challenged media.

    Now he may be involved in felony fraud and conspiracy to commit fraud.

    He said he wasn’t as involved many people think.

    Hey Lamarr01! Thanks for your email. You’re one of a half-dozen who bothered to write me. Still no subpoena or Order to Appear, fyi.

    Ya’ll hoaxed yourselves, so all credit where it’s due: with you. I can’t pwn those who pwn themselves.
