Here’s the State Registrar’s stamp from Barack Obama’s long form birth certificate.

“TXE” is what it looks like; however, it may be instructive to look under the covers. It is widely reported that the long form PDF file we’re viewing is made up of layers, including a background layer and separate layers for various objects on the form identified during PDF optimization. The Onaka signature stamp is essentially a separate object (or layer). It’s instructive to look at that layer in more detail.

I used the Export feature of Adobe Acrobat to get the following actual sized image which is only 76 pixels per inch!

When one zooms in on this, we get a better idea of what information underlies the the pure black part of image:

The right vertical stroke of the “H” is complete in the bitmap. Added to this image should be other non-purely-black smudges from the other layers.

So yes, it looks like an “X” but it isn’t. Why is it like this? Low resolution of the stamp is certainly important, and maybe the stamp is damaged due to wear, or a bit of lint accumulated in the middle. The real reason probably won’t come to light without a higher resolution scan or examples of other stamps from about now. I asked Barry for a better copy.

Unusual goings on at Orly Taitz website

Orly Taitz

It’s been a slow week for Obama conspiracies so, scraping the bottom of the barrel for material, I went over to Orly Taitz’s train wreck1 of a web site and found a couple of surprises.

The first was a reprint of a spoof, a fake comment by Vladimir Putin about Obama being a socialist. That’s not odd, but the fact that it was labeled “HUMOR” did get my attention. Birthers are supposed to fall for this stuff, not correctly identify it. (One commenter did appear to have fallen for it.)

The second thing was the “outing” of the obot “Butterfly Bieldeburg” [sic], and claims that same is an IRS attorney named [mumble] and that this person threatened to use her government position against Orly, and that Orly would be filing a complaint. That’s not interesting either, except two amazing things happened. Orly petitioned the court to get the sign-in sheet for the Hornbeck v. Salazar hearing, someone raised an objection, and the court sided with Taitz — saying that it was a public hearing. Usually when a judge starts citing rules at Taitz, she loses.  The other amazing thing is that someone left the following comment, and it was allowed to be seen:

What are you? Five?
“This person hurt my feelings! I’m going to sue!”
Go back to where you came from.

The article itself is part of Orly’s vendetta against participants in The Fog Bow forum. Personally, I try to stay out of feuds involving folks like Orly Taitz. Butterfly Bilderberg has a particular sense of humor that has led her to say things that should not be taken literally, like:

Hey, Orly, did I ever tell you that Lisa Liberi is my best friend? Yeah, that’s right. We’ve been friends since before I moved away from San Bernardino. She introduced me to Phil. Did you know that I’ve been working for Berg since 2008? All those pleadings he filed — well, I wrote them. I used to live in Pennsylvania, in 2000 – 2002. When I lived there the court reporter for the E.D. Pa. worked lots of my depositions — I think she is good at her craft. I would vouch for her character any day of the week. I’m heading to Washington DC next week — anything you want me to tell the docket clerk in DC?

1There are three huge problems on that site. 1) She uses oversized images that overlay the right sidebar. 2) She doesn’t break her very long articles using the “Read more” feature. 3) the Next / Previous article links seem to be missing so that if you are on the home page you can’t scroll to earlier articles, or if on an article page, you can’t view a previous article. About the only to navigate is to use the topical/archive/calendar widgets.


Secret codes: what the heck is the NSIS?

The NSIS (National Security Intelligence Service) is sort of the Kenyan equivalent of the US CIA, used by conspiracy theorists as sources for rumors that cannot be verified by the public. Recall various claims about the CIA collecting DNA from the Dunham family.

Of course we have learned that sometimes government secrets are leaked. How can one tell whether a report from one of these secret organizations is real or just made up? Actually, we can get a great deal of help from the website WorldNetDaily. When WND reports on one of these sources they use code words to indicate whether the source is legitimate or a fake. A case in point is their May 30 article,  Kenya probed claim Obama born in Africa: Internal intelligence reports indicate government investigation.

How to read WorldNetDaily

When reading WorldNetDaily, one should immediately disregard the article title.  Titles correlate rather poorly with story content at WND, and appear to be designed throw the uninitiated reader off the track (or perhaps for marketing purposes). If anything of value is to be found, one must look into the article, and often at the very end.

In this article we are discussing three documents with Kenyan sources written on them. Two contain the name of Kenya’s immigration secretary as the author. These are, of course, confidential documents and cannot be verified by the source. In order to see if they are genuine, one needs to look at each and every reference to the documents in the article looking for the code word that indicates whether they are genuine. Among the many references in the article, we see one saying “purportedly written by” and that is the key phrase by which WND tells the initiated reader that WND believes them to be fakes.
