Born In The USA

One of the biggest promoters and defenders of Obama's bogus birth certificate is FactCheck.org -- another organization that bills itself as "non-partisan," but which is a part of the Annenberg network of liberal-left causes and facilitators.

FactCheck.org has published a web page entitled, "Born in the U.S.A. -- The truth about Obama's birth certificate."

The information on FactCheck.org's webpage is 100% bovine excrement, and was produced by individuals who have no background or experience as forensic document examiners.

The simple fact is, the paper version of this "COLB" has never been examined by any controlling legal authority.  The only people to have ever seen the document supporting Obama's claim to the Oval Office is Obama's operatives in his campaign and at FactCheck.org.
Summary
1.  "In June, the Obama campaign released a digitally scanned image of his birth certificate..."

This statement is false -- the campaign released a digitally scanned "Certification of Live Birth."  The document presented on this website is not now and never has been a birth certificate, and FactCheck.org knows it.  So why did they publish this lie?

2.  "FactCheck.org staffers have now seen, touched, examined and photographed the original birth certificate."

This statement is also a lie -- no FactCheck.org employee has ever "...touched, examined and photographed the original birth certificate." -- because FactCheck.org does not have a copy of Barack Obama's original birth certificate.

So FactCheck.org's conclusion, "We conclude that..." is false, because its conclusions are based on a false premise -- that its employees have seen Obama's birth certificate -- they haven't, because the State of Hawaii won't release it.  What do you think is going on in the 48 lawsuits against Obama.  These suits are all trying to get to Obama's birth certificate and 48 times, judges have said, "I can't go for that, ohh, no, I can't go for that."

3.  "Update, Nov. 1: The director of Hawaii’s Department of Health confirmed Oct. 31 that Obama was born in Honolulu."

Complete fabrication and bold-faced lie -- what Fuikino wrote was, "Therefore, I as Director of Health for the State of Hawai'i, along with the Registrar of Vital Statistics who has statutory authority to oversee and maintain these type of vital records, have personally seen and verified that the Hawai'i State Department of Health has Sen. Obama’s original birth certificate on record in accordance with state policies and procedures."

Nowhere in that statement does it say Obama was born in Honolulu, and here is the complete statement:  -- check it out yourself.

And, nowhere does FactCheck.org identify the militantly partisan website that released the "Certification of Live Birth" -- The Daily Kos -- one of the wackiest websites extant.  This FACT alone makes this entire scenario suspicious, if not patently ridiculous.
Analysis
1.  FactCheck.org's own analysis confirms what I wrote above, under Summary.

2.  FactCheck.org presents a photo of a "Certification of Live Birth," captioned, "The Obama birth certificate, held by FactCheck writer Joe Miller."

That's a lie, as well -- the document in this photo is a "Certification of Live Birth" (getting tiresome, isn't it) -- not a birth certificate.  They are different documents, and the folks at this  mendacious organization know the difference -- Joseph Goebbels would be proud of FactCheck.org's big lie.

FactCheck.org presents a photo image of the document further down the page, under Analysis -- That document is not a "birth certificate."  It is a "Certification of Live Birth," again, FactCheck.org knowingly misrepresents the document as something it is not, and it's not even the document that was released. 

Here is the document that was released to The Daily Kos.  The original document released had its Certificate Number blacked out -- and if one looks at the document, it says at the bottom, "ANY ALTERATIONS INVALIDATE THIS CERTIFICATE" -- even if the document were genuine -- it isn't VALID.

The biggest point is that the document FactCheck.org is proferring as a genuine birth certificate is, in fact, an altered computer printout.  It's a completely bogus document.

3.  FactCheck.org published several other images defending its false presentation on this page.

4.  In late July, a researcher looking to dig up dirt on Obama instead found a birth announcement that had been published in the Honolulu Advertiser on Sunday, Aug. 13, 1961.

A birth announcement could have been easily phoned in to the newspaper from anywhere in the world.  This "fact" is inconclusive, unless you know who provided the newspaper with the announcement, the means they used, and where they were physically located at the time.
Analists
FactCheck.org identifies their analists as Jess Henig and Joe Miller.  OK, that's fine, but who and what are Jess Henig and Joe Miller?  Are they qualified to make an analysis of ANY document, or are they just a couple of guys hanging around FactCheck.org's office, or are they political operators?  What are their bona fides?  FactCheck.org doesn't say.  Wonder why?

Well, I found out.  The two FactCheck.org employees who were granted access to Obama's C.O.L.B. are NOT document experts.  Joe Miller has a Ph. D. in Political Philosophy -- so he's a political operative -- while Jess Henig has an M.A. in English Literature -- I'm not sure her dye-job is a political or esthetic statement. 

Clicking the links will display their photos -- just what you'd expect -- Jess took the photos and did all of the writing while Bob basically held the COLB open for Jess to shoot it.

Those two are completely unqualified to perform any kind of forensic examination of the COLB document, and FactCheck.org knows it -- so do they.

FactCheck does say their, "representatives got a chance to spend some time with the birth certificate, and we can attest to the fact that it is real and three-dimensional and resides at the Obama headquarters in Chicago."  In my mind, that clearly shows they were working with and for the Obama Campaign and that Obama and his people are involved in this lie.

Lie?  Hell, this is a conspiracy and FactCheck.org boldly admits their part in it.
Experts
I prefer to give credence to Dr. Ron Polarik, who holds a Ph.D. in Instructional Media and specializes in computer graphics with over 20 years experience with computers, printers and typewriters, who provides conclusive and irrefutable evidence that the Certificate of Live Birth (COLB) image created and distributed by Obama's campaign to the Daily Kos, Annenberg's FactCheck, and the St. Petersburg Times, and Politifact, is, unquestionably, a false identification document.  Here, is his final report.

A second expert forensic document examiner Ms. Sandra Ramsey Lines has filed an affidavit  associated with one of the lawsuits, stating the following:

1. I am Sandra Ramsey Lines, With an address at...  I am a former federal examiner and law enforcement officer.  I began training as a forensic document examiner in 1991.  I am a Certified Diplomat of Forensic Sciences, a member of the American Society of Questioned Document Examiners, a member of the Southwestern Association of Forensic Document Examiners, and a member of the Questioned Document Subcommittee of the American Society of Testing and Materials.  My background and credentials are set forth in Exhibit I attached hereto.

2. I have reviewed the attached affidavit posted on the internet from "Ron Polarik."  After my review and based on my years of experience, I can state with certainty that the COLB presented on the internet by the various groups, which include the "Daily Kos," the Obama Campaign, "FactCheck.org" and others cannot be relied upon as genuine.
Annenberg
Since the title of the FactCheck.org web page is, "The truth about Obama's birth certificate," everything on the page is a bold-faced lie, because FactCheck.org has never, ever seen Obama's birth certificate and every image and reference on their page is to a Certification of Live Birth -- and they refer to it a "birth certificate" every time.

Hawaii is notorious for its issuance of COLB's.  Click here to see a large copy of a beautifully printed Certificate of Hawaiian Birth (If you click it, it will get bigger or smaller).  It belongs to Sun Yat-Sen, the Father of Modern China, who was born in China. 

This Certificate of Hawaiian Birth, dated March 14, 1904, was issued after Dr. Sun signed a raggedy type-written statement affirming that he was born in Hawaii on Nov. 24, 1870.  Sun Yat-sen was born on November 12, 1866, to a peasant family in the village of Cuiheng, Xiangshan county , Guangzhou prefecture, Guangdong province (26 km or 16 miles north of Macau), not Hawaii, as this document affirms.

Maya Soetoro-Ng, Obama's sister is reputed to have a Hawaiian Certification of Live Birth too, and she was born in Jakarta, Indonesia.

None of this is surprising, since FactCheck.org is funded by the Annenberg Foundation, which also funded Obama's buddy, the unrepentant domestic terrorist Bill Ayers, who, in turn, hired Barack Obama.  They represent themselves as unbiased and non-partisan.  That, of course, is just another lie.

This "birth certificate" controversy is in addition to the fact that Obama is not a "natural born" citizen.  There's at least two reasons Obama shouldn't be in the Oval Office -- election fraud and his constitutional ineligibility.

"To tell deliberate lies while genuinely believing in them, to forget any fact that has become inconvenient, and then when it becomes necessary again, to draw it back from oblivion for just so long as it is needed..."

George Orwell, "Nineteen Eighty-Four"
What's Wrong With This Picture?
There were enough alterations in this one image to fill a book on "How to falsify an image and hide the signs of forgery."  Nothing about this image was genuine, yet, five weeks later, FactCheck posted a set of nine digital photos of what they claim was the same, alleged birth certificate used to make the scan image.

What's wrong with this picture? (or should I say, "pictures?")

If what's shown in the scan image is bogus, then what's shown in FactCheck's photos must also be bogus.  We already knew that FactCheck was a shill for Obama along with being an accomplice to his document fraud.  So, we were not surprised when FactCheck launched an all-out assault on the "birthers" and their "right-wing conspiracy theories" along with the photos they posted on their website.  FactCheck's COLB photos allegedly show the front side of the embossed Seal that was not shown in the scan image (except while under image enhancements).  These COLB photos also show the second fold-line that never was seen in the scan image under any conditions.

FactCheck intended their photos to verify the existence of a real COLB document that the claim was used to make the scan image.  Unfortunately for FactCheck, their photos actually verify that their scan image was bogus.  For if this document object, with its pronounced second fold-line and heavily embossed Seal, was used to make the original scan image, then the scanner would never have missed copying these prominent features.  Added to that revelation is the suspicious failure of FactCheck to photograph the most important part of the document, the entire embossed Seal as seen from both sides.  FactCheck's photos taken from the back side of the Seal show that the top third of the Seal was deliberately cropped from the picture.  Even in the full shot of the Seal, the top one-third of it was also cut off -- well below the second fold line.

Rather than lend credibility to the original scan image, these photos supported Polarik's conclusions that the scan image was not made from a genuine document, but was fabricated from other images.  A top, forensic document examiner also agrees with my conclusions.  The fact that Obama's original birth certificate is not the only document being withheld from view, only underscores the immense effort taken to keep Obama's real identity from ever being known.

If the Obama narrative is real, and Obama really is who he says he is, then why are there no real documents to verify it, such as his Punahou School records, Selective Service Registration, Occidental College records, Passport (used to visit Pakistan), Columbia College records, Columbia thesis, Harvard College records, Baptism certificate, Medical records, Illinois State Senate records, Law License application, Law practice client list, and University of Chicago scholarly articles?
The FactCheck Link Between The Obama Campaign And Passportgate
This technical analysis was provided by John F. Sweeney, who reminds us that the two-year anniversary of "Passportgate" was this past Monday, March 14.  Passportgate was the covert "accessing" of passport records by three contractors at the State Department.  Two of the contractors were fired.  The contractor who was not fired, but only disciplined, worked for The Analysis Corporation.  John O. Brennan was the president of The Analysis Corporation.  He is also a former CIA official and is now Deputy National Security Adviser for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism.

The dates of access are January 9, February 21 and March 14, 2008.  The initial reports indicated only a breach of Obama’s records.  Later it was reported that Clinton and McCain’s records had been accessed.  The names of the individuals, including the one still working at the State Department, have never been released.  Officially, it was a simple matter of snooping; no criminal charges were filed and it was handled only with "disciplinary" action.  For such a serious breach, the penalties were light.

So what is the relevance of Passportgate and March 14, 2008?  One must go back two days to March 12, 2008 for the answer.  This is because from all available information, background, verifiable data and facts, March 12, 2008 is the first verifiable history of the now infamous Obama internet COLB, exactly two days prior to the last passport break-in.  Specifically, the first documentable record of the COLB starts at the hour of 22:41:37 on March 12, 2008.  This is the date and time stamp from the digital photo that is shown on the FactCheck.org website dedicated to Obama’s COLB.

Specifically, it is the photo named "birth_certificate_3.jpg."  FactCheck has removed the original embedded data, known as EXIF data, from its website, but an original version with the EXIF data can be found at the 24ahead.com website [discussion and amplification here].

What is known about this photo named "birth_certificate_3.jpg"?  As stated above, the date/time stamp digitally recorded when the photo was taken indicates the photo was taken March 12, 2008 and the time is recorded as 22:41:37 or 10:41 p.m.  Other data available from the EXIF data indicates the camera used was a Canon PowerShot A570IS.  It was in Auto mode with red-eye reduction mode on, the flash did not fire during the photo, the exposure time was 1/60th (relatively slow), and the F-stop (aperture) was 4.00.

While these values are shown in the EXIF data, we know they were automatically selected by the camera and not the photographer because we can also see the camera was set to full auto mode -- simply point and shoot.  The result was a slightly blurred, overexposed photo of printed, greenish-tint document.

In the photo, a document is being held up to a light source.  The light source is behind the photographer since the shadow of his arm is over the document.  The light source is also the predominant lighting since the background is dark and the overhead office lights are off in the background.  Analysis of the background finds: a) the overhead office lights off, and b) no natural light coming in from the large windows that can be seen.  The conclusion is that that photo was taken at night.  Was it at 10:41 p.m.?  There is nothing in the photo to contradict that digitally-captured time.
