Thanks to a commenter here for pointing me to this important news. Yesterday was a big day for birther Internet radio, with great stories of the Sheriff’s Kit from Mike Volin and an extended interview with Douglas Vogt on the Andrea Shea King show.
On the King show, Douglas Vogt discloses somewhat how he concluded the name of the person responsible for what he thinks is a forged Obama birth certificate. Here’s a transcript of the exchange (show time 44:28 ):
Vogt: The forger signed his birth certificate. Ask yourself if you’re a forger, and you’re doing the greatest forgery in history, one that you have a foreign agent to go, to become leader of the country, to destroy it from within. Wouldn’t you do some mark to sign it, that you could say you did this great work? And guess what? She did. That’s what happened.
King: And when she signed it with her mark, what was her mark?
Vogt: Oh, it was a mark. She literally spelled out every letter of her l– of her, I’m not going to say what part of the name, but a part of her name. You got it? She either added, damaged, or damaged every letter that makes up part of her name. You got it? … It’s every–She damages deliberately, and I’m not gonna say where, but most of it is in one location, and another letter she, she basically, she took a letter and she rotated it, which is impossible on typewriter. It’s a joke. And everyone, it spells her, part of one of her names. …
The sealed document [with the forger’s name] you’re not gonna see. It is sealed. It is only in the court. The judges have seen it and the clerk has seen it, but supposedly nobody else. But you can get a gist when you go into type letter part, the typewriter part, you’ll get the whole picture. When you get into the registrar’s stamp and the letters, the different letters, you’ll get a picture of what’s going on. … You’ve got some of the clues.
Now if I were a forger guilty of treason and the crime of the century, the last thing I would want to do is leave behind incriminating evidence. And if I really thought that someone’s life were in danger if sealed information became public, I wouldn’t be dishing out clues on the Internet. But hey, that’s just me, and I really don’t know anything about being an arch criminal, nor for that matter about being a birther.
I wrote “l—“ in the transcript because it really sounds like he was going to say a word beginning with “l,” which would have to be “last,” and a moment’s reflection suggests that the last name is the most likely part. “Jane” wouldn’t be much of an identification.
I will say that this one took me completely by surprise. My BS detector is just too keen for me to have come up with such an idea myself. I note immediately how subjective the process is, since “damage” to a letter is subjective to start with. I’ve looked at the document and I never saw any evidence of deliberate damage of any of the letters. I think we’re seeing the Obama certificate rear its ugly smiley face again.
Given that we can know with confidence that the birth certificate released by the White House is the image of an original document with only mechanical and algorithmic processing done to it, there are no intentionally damaged letters. Vogt is working with noise to start with, and of course humans readily see images in noise.

Well it only took a little while for the Obots to follow the bread crumbs Vogt left on two talk radio interviews to reveal the name of the alleged forger. She’s a very private person and I can see why Vogt didn’t make it public, because she would very definitely have grounds for a libel suit.
AnitaMaria at The Fogbow figured it out. A couple of the “damaged” letters are ones birthers have talked about before, and Vogt tells us what letter is rotated in a second interview on the Hagmann and Hagmann Internet radio program on Blog Talk Radio. He gives another clue that pretty much seals the deal in the same interview when he says:
These errors are also on the forger’s birth certificate. She did the same thing on hers.
Vogt talked about the forger having a need to show how clever she is, even though it might imperil her life. Vogt is not talking about the imaginary forger—he is talking about himself. He’s got so much need to show everybody how clever he is that he gives clues which simply lead to an identity, an identity that if known (according to Vogt) could lead to her death. Somebody’s life is less important to Vogt than his own vanity.
OK, please, no hinting in discussion. There’s already a link to The Fogbow with the identification.
Orly Taitz weighed in and said that she had personally met “Jane Doe #2.” Taitz commented on this blog on July 28, 2012, that she had met the holder of a Hawaiian certificate that she thought was a “dry run” for Obama’s forgery and gave the first name of the person, which matches our identification.
