You are not trying to figure it out. You have been told over and over and over that the layers are due to character recognition software used in the scan of all the birth certificates so the text can be searchable. It is an extremely common practice when governments scan documents. Take off your f**king blinders. Even Fox News understands this.

No I`ve seen those "artifacts" before at the library, typical dating stamps. Even some people fork over some money so they can embold their autograph on a rubber stamp.

Same thing, humans just aren`t perfect and the stamps they make wear out. Also the ones digit in the year is actually consistent so are the date and month.

iirc: that was the Certificatre Of Live Birth which is an entirely different matter.

And the date stamps at the bottom? Made with the exact same stamper but looking VERY different? If you can account for that, I`d be impressed!

I`d be even more impressed if you could link a site which duplicates these artifacts without photoshop. I`ve heard `experts agree` over and over, but not ONE botheres to support Obama by demonstrating how it happened?

Also: the moved around spacing on official seal(s)? Just isn`t likely.

It`s one thing piled on top of another: not one isolated detail.
And the sudden, almost miraculous appearence of the "paper copy" which no one has ever seen... unless you can link that.

On top of the "artifacts" generated by digitilization, typewriters thoroughly used would leave uneven impressions in the medium, which would explain the different shades of ink the print text. Putting your John Hancock down is more of an art than it is a science meaning that pressure is not always uniform throughout the stroke. Then people sometimes make errors while filling out check marks.

@Cajun: Mom and Dad Obama phone or telegram Grandma about BHO`s birth. Perfectly normal! However, this assumes he was indeed born in Kenya, not Hawaii.
Grandma, happily announces the birth in the local paper. Again, perfectly normal.
For whatever reason, (the conspiracy goes) it is anounced that BHO was born in a local hospital.

NOW: The LFBC as presented is:
scanned using old methods and converted, causing artifacts.
BUT: HotAir (your link) reports that BHO`s lawyer got a paper origional of the LFCB, something the Governer of Hawaii failed to even confirm existed!
Paper origional: scan once, no artifacts!

Weird things within the document which are completely unrelated to scanning methods? Ignored and unexplained.

Fact Remains: this all should have been done by the DNC in 2008. Thinking THAT makes me a "birther"? Believeing that laws apply equally to everyone? Huh...

Without regard to where Obama was born, that document he claims to be his original long-form birth certificate was unquestionably created on a computer using Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. I`ve provided indisputable proof, and no one here has produced even a single shred of evidence to refute that fact. All I`ve gotten from your side is insults, name-calling, and mindless denials of the same mentality as:

Regarding the "African" thing, Snopes has covered that and I see no reason to doubt their explanation, viz:

[quote]The space for "Race of Father" is filled in with the word "African," which was a commonly used descriptor for blacks who (like Barack Obama`s father) who were actually native-born Africans.[/quote]

So, can we set aside the "African" thing--or at least agree to disagree there---and focus on the artifacts? (IT is my profession, after all, not birth certificates.)

@Ollie,

Wrong. At BEST you showed that it may be possible to recreate a document electronically--a point which I am not conceding--and there are some points which cause you to think that it was.

You have a lot to learn about the burden of proof. Try to take that poo into court and see how it works. Or even just take that poo to the court of public opinion and see how it works. Wait, it already has been brought in front of the court of public opinion, and it was laughed out of the conversation.

It was accepted as a fact for years; it was a big lie promoted by those nasty `right wingers` (who were Democrats actually)... until Bill admitted that, in fact, he DID have a mistress named Jennifer Flowers for almost a decade.

Then tell me again how the MSM is always 100% correct. How completely un-biased it is! How a politician would NEVER EVER lie to get ahead!!

Snopes conclusion for people that don`t like to read long documents:

"The "Cold Case Posse" investigation of Barack Obama`s birth certificate conducted by Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio produced no new evidence demonstrating that document to be a forgery. That entity`s report by Mara Zebest simply recycled old arguments that had long since been thoroughly debunked in detail."

This was proved false last year by Snopes.

The scanner used by Hawaii to copy the Birth Certificates uses character recognition software so that the text in the documents can be searchable. That is what is broke the file into multiple layers. But you morons already know this. You are just being asses.

Believers say the same thing about the moon landings. They believe it, too, despite it being utter drivel completely contradicted by the evidence.

This isn`t as clear because it isn`t so easy to prove it`s not a fake, but an extraordinary claim (that he was born elsewhere and nobody noticed, then they faked it all rather than just choosing someone else, back before he was known) needs extraordinary evidence to support it and there`s nothing much; some artefacts that could be caused by scanning and conversion from an old pre-printed form with typing on, e.g. layering and variations in shading. The possibly suspicious use of `African` instead of `Negro` - is that actually impossible for 1961?

patchgrabber: Releasing fake documents, while holding the real one in reserve, would easily keep people distracted from his other missing papers and information.

A postal letter carrier has already signed an affidavit to the fact that he discussed Obama`s education with Bill Ayers parents and that they indeed did pay for his Harvard education. He even met Obama at their front door, who boasted at the time that he`d be President of the United States.

The fact is: it`s SO BADLY faked, one has to wonder who imagined it would `pass as real` in the first place? It could easily be true that Obama is playing this for votes, stranger things have happened!

And it distracts from other, legitimate questions: where are his thesis papers (supposed to be public)? His grades? etc.

Actually, no. In the face of all of the evidence, even if only circumstantial, that that the birth certificate if genuine, the burden is on you to prove that it is fake. And, simply suggesting that it is possible for it to have been faked is no evidence that it is, in fact, fake.

Again, the ball is in your court. Prove that it happened, not simply that it was possible.

As for my flavor of Kool-Aide, well, I prefer cherry but that is a moot point--it seems as though you have already drank it all.

I included section (4) because I`m sure you would have commented on the language "to the next ten percent" in section (5).

I guess is is possible that 400 students had a GPA above a 4.75 and received a SCL designation the year that Obama graduated and his MCL designation actually placed him at the bottom of the class, even though, apparently, sometimes NOBODY graduates with a 4.75. If that happened, well, you win, Obama is an idiot.

However, I think the burden is on YOU to show that was the case and that Obama was not, in fact, in the top 10% (+1) of his class.

@Ston: You apparently have no idea of the history behind this story.
Hawaii has NO RECORD of Obama being born there. No hospital records, no doctor`s records, none. The Governer of Hawaii, himself a Democrat who fully supports Obama, could NOT find anything!
Being scanned does not explain why various objects are mis-formed, official stamps and such aren`t random: that they`re all fudged up on his "document" is suspicious to say the least!

@paperduck: Obama`s family moved around a lot when he was young, but he always had US Citizenship. That`s not the issue here. There`s a very old Law that requires the President to actually be BORN in the USA. (Or to an Army Family serving abroad, like John MacCain).

So in fact his school papers, birth certificate and tons of other records are hidden from the public ON PURPOSE.

"4. For students who matriculated as of, or after, Fall Term 2008, the summa cum laude will be determined by the requirement of a 4.75 GPA. The honor is exact and does not involve "rounding off"; ie., a GPA of 4.749 does not result in a degree summa cum laude. If, in a given year, no student earns a GPA of 4.75 or higher, summa cum laude will be awarded to the student (or students in the case of a tie) with the highest overall GPA.

5. The magna cum laude will be awarded to the next ten percent of the entire class."

From the Harvard Law School website. He graduated in magna cum laude, which puts him in the top 10 percent. It is standard practice in every law school to grade blind and on a curve. Class rank is an important part of the process as firms require that information to screen prospective candidates. It is required that the information is included on your transcript for nearly every job to which you apply.

@Gerry,

Even IF he got into Harvard law school because of affirmative action, that doesn`t explain how he graduated with honors. Law school grading is 1) on a curve and 2) blind. He earned that.

I`m sure you are going to say that we haven`t seen his transcript. Well, people get disbarred for misrepresenting their professional credentials and during the process to get barred, the candidate`s academic record is subject to intense scrutiny. Obama has not been disbarred. Therefore, Obama is not misrepresenting his academic record.

The first thing we do is throw Kagan and Sotomayor off the Supreme Court along with all the other leftist judges he`s appointed. Then we rescind all the laws he`s signed and all the regulations his administration had foisted on us, and we fire everyone he`s hired. Finally, we claw back as much money as we can that he`s given away to his cronies and campaign contributors like all those fraudulent green energy boondoggles.

And that`s just the first day.

"Take ANY printed document, throw it on your scanner, and see if you can reproduce ANY of the artifacts in this image."

I`ll tell you what I can`t reproduce on a scanner: a birth-notice in a Hawaii newspaper announcing his birth that showed up Aug 4, 1961.

Yeah, someone really powerful put him in the office of the President. Someone who can drating time travel.

Okay, all of you Kool-Aid-drinking liberal f***tards out there, here`s a challenge. Take ANY printed document, throw it on your scanner, and see if you can reproduce ANY of the artifacts in this image.

Birth Certificate Artifacts.

Also, please explain why Obama`s father`s race was listed as "African," which is not a race but a modern-day politically correct euphemism for "negro," the term that would have been used in 1961.

You can check this against the original file. Just Google "birth-certificate -long-form.pdf" and get it straight from the White House web site.

Time to put up or shut up, @$$holes.

Since his birth cert is fake, that means someone with a LOT of power put him there. Also he doesn`t belong there. Not to mention he`s a sh/itty, sh/itty president.

I find it interesting that the general response to this defeat is to act like the contest was never important in the first place.

It`s like (hypothetically) if Bush made a speech about how Killing Osama wasn`t all that important of a matter in the first place.

"his mother was a citizen at the time of his birth, that makes him a natural born citizen regardless of where he was born according to the US Naturalization laws."

Go re-read the law, and try again.

Mother and father do not have to be citizens for their child to be a naturally born US citizen. All that needs take place, is the baby must be born within the borders of the US, or a territory thereof.

Conversely, if a child is born to an American mother and father in say, Kenya. That baby is Kenyan.

CrakrJak; who paid for his Harvard education and how did he get in Harvard in the first place?

His father was a senior governmental economist & he did a graduate fellowship in economics at Harvard. He also worked for an Oil company.

So my guess is; His father paid for his tuition given he was a rich sonovabich & also got him into Harvard...

You`re obviously extremely well versed on the matter, so please tell me, what organisations have you personally contacted requesting the other information pertaining to his education you seem to think is fraudulent? And what was their response?

Or are you, like most numpteys; basing your information on FOX news?

This "controversy" was a connived scheme to make republicans look like nuts. More importantly it`s disguised more important facts about Obama`s history like, where are his transcripts, grades, papers he wrote, who paid for his Harvard education and how did he get in Harvard in the first place?

We may find out later, after his defeat this year, but he should`ve been vetted much better.

There are just as many left wing socialists in america who think the government doesn`t regulate much of their daily life. I knew two ultra-lib pacifists who easily loved the country they were born in more than anyone else I`ve ever known.

Personal social doctrine has very little to do with how passionate one will be in regards to what it is their government will allow them to do.

...Ok. So lets assume that it is a fake..

Who made it? Well if it`s been officially released by the government then someone created it in the official/unofficial quagmire of covert operations.

So in other words, some high-up dude was given the task of creating a fake BC to try to stop an extremely embarrasing case of fraud at the highest level of government going public.

So let us presume, just for kicks, that this guy was provided with a more-than-modest budget & access to grade-A computer nerds that could do a bit more than code their way out of a paper bag...

At what point would this arrangement actually create a document that could be taken apart by a bunch of `volunteers.`

In the grand of words of our own governmental embarrasment, Maggie Tatcher; NO NO NO NO!

So assuming that it was created as such, then surely would it not be absolutely fool-proof, a perfect creation that would hold up to any form of expertise...

Considering the poo that he is dealing with, I`d say he is doing a damn fine job.

@Angelmassb: I`m sure there`s plenty of countries out there that have elected presidents that may not have been born in that country.

Of course, when you`re "elected" to "President-for-life" after a political coup ... but hey, still elected president.

Besides, the first 7 presidents of the US were not born in the US. Mainly because the US didn`t exist yet.

This thing is so weird..,

When Obama came to this country, I`m assuming they checked his documents. How did he gain entry into the country? This would be on an government database. Obama was employed prior to being president, so he must have a social security number or a work visa. If he was born in the US, a SS# is issued immediately. If he applied and got a SS# later in life, there is a record of that. When and where was his SS# issued? If he went the visa route and then get naturalized, a record of that process is on an immigration database. And I`m guessing he has a US passport. How did he get a passport if he couldn`t prove he`s a citizen? also doesn`t the birth certificate issuance record exist in some government database too?

Why is this on TV? It seems there would be no way he is an immigrant.

What a waste of taxpayer`s money. Would be infinitely cheaper to send a request to Hawaii`s Department of Health. In fact, they have the instructions on their website.website. "It`s computer generated" - sure, so is mine. And probably everyone else in the US. Scan in the original, transfer the important data (anything hand-written)as-is to a base template, OCR software to fill in the rest, double-check for errors in OCR, then put original paper copy in a safe environment for long-term storage. Probably happened 15-20 years ago for most of the US. For the last 10 years or so, most birth certificates are completely electronic. There`s never a paper original.

The the long-form birth certificate he released was such an obvious, amateurish forgery it had to be a troll. He wanted people screaming that it was fake so he could slander them as being nut-case conspiracy theorists.

The fact is, he probably was born in Hawaii, but he`s getting more mileage from the controversy.

So some "volunteers" working for an elected sheriff decides evidence "may" exist to "suggest" fraud and all these people get their knockers in a knot. Another slow day for news.

Joe Arpaio is a grade A douchebag who should be tried for crimes against humanity. Being sheriff of Maricopa county in Arizona, he`s been known to parade prisoners in pink jumpsuits through the town and will racially profile the ass off anyone who`s not an obese, white, Christian, gun-toting piece of poo like himself. Oh yeah, and he`s been known to join up with Steven Segal and bulldoze SUSPECTED drug dealers` houses with an effing tank and kill puppies in the process. Vile. scum.

"His great-grandfather left the US with his family to escape persecution against polygamy."

That sentence made it sound like his great-grandfather himself left the US to personally escape persecution. That is not what I meant. From what it says on Wiki he fled the United States with their children owing to the federal government`s prosecution of polygamy.

If someone wanted to forge a birth certificate from 50 years ago, they wouldn`t "create it on the computer." They would first create a physical fake and then scan it in.

Flatbed scanners are far from perfect anyway. As Angilion said, they add artifacts to the image.

Where`s Romney`s birth certificate? His dad was born in Mexico and spent his first five years there in a polygamous colony. His great-grandfather left the US with his family to escape persecution against polygamy.

Are they still blathering about the scanning artefacts, e.g. layers? I`m mildly curious, but not enough to watch the video. Firstly, I think it`s wildly implausible that he`d have been nominated if there was any doubt (does anyone think he wasn`t checked out in every possible way beforehand?) and secondly, I don`t care where he was born. A citizen of the USA was elected to be president of the USA - that`ll do for me.

Right before the presidential elections... it`s like they really did not wanted Obama to defend himself at all.
