The Rebirth of Birthers?

The main question is and always has been, why doesn’t Obama release his records? I would, and all his predecessors have, so why not Obama?

Excerpt: New evidence, however, has reignited conservative interest in Obama’s birth certificate. Conservative icon Sherriff Joe Arpaio of Arizona, at the behest of a petition presented by the Surprise, Arizona Tea Party organization, organized a “cold case posse” and completed a six-month examination of the released birth certificate in order to determine its authenticity. The results are in, Joe says, and they point to the document being a fake.

Skilled as Sherriff Joe’s team undoubtedly is in identifying forged documents, last month offered interesting substantiation of the team’s findings. Renowned skeptic of global warming theories Lord Christopher Monckton, who has experience investigating high-level fraud as a policy adviser under Margaret Thatcher, has given the claim added veracity.

According to World Net Daily, Monckton said that “it appears that the document was cobbled together in layers, pointing to evidence that three date stamps and a registrar’s stamp were superimposed on it from another document.” If there were a single, original document to verify the president’s Hawaiian birth, why “go to all that trouble, he reasoned.”

Monckton’s conclusion? “My assessment is that they are right to be worried… That document is not genuine.”

This conclusion glaringly lacks ambiguity. And if Monckton is correct, we should be beyond worried. We should be outraged, and we should demand justice for the betrayal of the American people’s trust.

Mockton’s testimony is a bombshell. It is a credible voice suggesting that the image on the White House website, offered to the American people in good faith, was presented as an accurate depiction of Obama’s birth certificate, and for whatever reason, it is not. This is forgery, a crime in itself, but it is the reason for the possible forgery — fraud — that keeps the media and lawmakers from running with this amazing story.

Anyone calling Obama’s birth certificate into question will have to entertain the notion that perhaps the forgery was made because the president does not have legal proof of his American birth. And anyone carrying that message will have the stink of “right-wing birther” on him, and he will be swiftly devoured by the attack dogs in the media and marginalized. So in a way, I don’t blame conservative lawmakers and pundits for treading lightly around the issue.

  2. Re: ““Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie suggested in an interview published today that a long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate for Barack Obama may not exist within the vital records maintained by the Hawaii Department of Health.”

    THAT does not come from the Honolulu Star Advertiser. It comes from a birther site.

    And WND made it all up. Abercrombie NEVER said that he could not find anything. THREE Republican officials in Hawaii stated that the facts on Obama’s birth certificate were accurate. Two of them stated that they had SEEN Obama’s birth certificate in the files. In addition to them the current director of health of Hawaii stated in writing that she had seen the original birth certificate being copied onto security paper, and that the copy was accurate, and that that was what she gave to Obama’s lawyer. In addition to these four, there is another official, whose name we do not know, who must have seen Obama’s original birth certificate in the files. That would be the clerk who prepared the short-form birth certificate, which is done by having a clerk fill in the facts on the computer form that generates the short-form birth certificate FROM THE FACT ON THE DOCUMENT IN THE FILES.

    The listings in the HEALTH BUREAU STATISTICS sections of the Hawaii newspapers, which is where Obama’s birth notices appeared were ONLY sent to the papers by the DOH of Hawaii, as the papers and the PUMA Lori have stated.

    Obama has shown his birth certificate twice–short form and long form–and he has shown both the images of the documents on the Web and the physical copies of them to the press. One reporter stated that she had seen the physical copy, felt the official seal, and photographed it. Moreover, there is absolutely no facts showing that Obama’s mother traveled outside of the USA in 1961 or that Obama entered it.

    Here is the photographic image of the physical copy of the long-form birth certificate that was passed around in the White House Press room, and the statement of the reporter who photographed it that she had felt the raised seal:

    Here is the photographic image of the physical copy of Obama’s short form birth certificate, front and back.

    Here is confirmation that it is the official birth certificate that Hawaii issues


    Here is the first of the confirmations by the officials in Hawaii.

    Notice where it says that there is an original birth certificate filed. Well, in 1961 foreign birth certificates, even those from other states, could not be filed in Hawaii. So the birth certificate in Obama’s files must be a Hawaii birth certificate.

    Here is the second of the confirmations by the officials in Hawaii.

    Notice where it says that the document in the files VERIFIES that Obama was born in Hawaii. So, not only is there an official Hawaiian birth certificate in the files, but it says right on it that Obama was born in Hawaii. Hawaii has never allowed the Department of Health to issue a birth document of any kind that says on it that anyone was born in Hawaii unless there was proof that the child was born in Hawaii, and that is what the officials in Hawaii have confirmed twice.

    And here is the confirmation by the former governor of Hawaii, Linda Lingle, a Republican, that says that Obama was born in Hawaii, in Kapiolani Hospital

    And here is the statement of a witness who recalls being told of Obama’s birth in Hawaii, in Kapiolani Hospital, in 1961:

    Here are the birth notices of Obama’s birth in the Hawaii newspapers in 1961.

    I regret that some of the citings posted earlier about the alleged forgery have been moved. Here are some statements from document experts that contradict those cited by WND and the posse:

    The following experts say that there is nothing wrong with Obama’s birth certificate, and the State of Hawaii, which is the real expert, has not said that there is anything wrong with it.

    Dr. Neil Krawetz, an imaging software analysis author and experienced examiner of questioned images, said: \ldblquote The PDF released by the White House shows no sign of digital manipulation or alterations. I see nothing that appears to be suspicious.

    Nathan Goulding with The National Review: We have received several e-mails today calling into question the validity of the PDF that the White House released, namely that there are embedded layers in the document. There are now several other people on the case. We looked into it and dismissed it. \’85 I\rquote ve confirmed that scanning an image, converting it to a PDF, optimizing that PDF, and then opening it up in Illustrator, does in fact create layers similar to what is seen in the birth certificate PDF. You can try it yourself at home.

    John Woodman, independent computer professional, said in a series of videos that the claims of fakery that he examined were unfounded.

    Ivan Zatkovich, who has testified in court as a technology expert, and consultant to WorldNetDaily: “All of the modifications to the PDF document that can be identified are consistent with someone enhancing the legibility of the document.”

  3. What records are you referring to? Obama has released his birth certificate twice. In contrast NO Republican candidate for president has shown his birth certificate.

    Obama has not shown his school transcripts, passport records, etc. But then neither have the Republican candidates for president.

    Re Sheriff Joe and the guy who CLAIMS to be a lord (he is lying about that as well):

    No official in Hawaii–—and they are the authorities after all—–has said that there is anything wrong with Obama’s birth certificate or that there is anything different in the published image of it from what they sent to Obama.

    Other research done on this issue:…………

    THREE Republican officials in Hawaii confirmed the facts on Obama’s birth certificate. Equally importantly, the fact that a birth certificate was issued in 1961 is confirmed by the birth notices in the Hawaii newspapers in that year. In 1961 Hawaii newspapers ONLY took birth notices from the DOH of Hawaii (they did NOT accept submitted notices or ads from relatives). And the DOH of Hawaii in 1961 only sent out birth notices for children born in Hawaii.

    • You should try your research again. 4 of the 5 research sites you claim as proof cannot be found. The birth certificates you say Obama has supplied are thought to be fakes as determined by experts both here and in England. Birth notices in Hawaii newspapers could be done by any relative with no proof needed. Even the Democrat Governor who said he would produce Obama’s birth certificate came back later and said he couldn’t find it.

      “Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie suggested in an interview published today that a long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate for Barack Obama may not exist within the vital records maintained by the Hawaii Department of Health.

      Abercrombie told the Honolulu Star Advertiser he was searching within the Hawaii Department of Health to find definitive vital records that would prove Obama was born in Hawaii, because the continuing eligibility controversy could hurt the president’s chances of re-election in 2012.”

      McCain birth records were fully vetted by Congress because he was born on a military base in Panama and needed a determination as to whether he was a natural born citizen. Too bad the Democrat Congress didn’t vet the truly unqualified one, “The One”.
