COLB Image Removed from Factcheck.org Website

ARE THEY GETTING NERVOUS, OR ARE THE WALLS COMING DOWN?

by Sharon Rondeau

Image of what was purported by the Fight the Smears website to be Obama's "birth certificate" in 2008

(Apr. 3, 2011) — It has been reported that the image of Obama’s purported Certification of Live Birth has been removed or is otherwise unavailable from the website of Factcheck.org as of April 3, 2011, at 1:00 p.m. EDT.

A link from the original story now yields an error message.

The image still appears on Obama’s “Fight the Smears” website from 2008.  Under the image there is a submission with Factcheck’s logo which reads:

When Barack Obama Jr. was born on Aug. 4,1961, in Honolulu, Kenya was a British colony, still part of the United Kingdom’s dwindling empire. As a Kenyan native, Barack Obama Sr. was a British subject whose citizenship status was governed by The British Nationality Act of 1948. That same act governed the status of Obama Sr.‘s children.

Since Sen. Obama has neither renounced his U.S. citizenship nor sworn an oath of allegiance to Kenya, his Kenyan citizenship automatically expired on Aug. 4,1982.

The same webpage contains an initial statement also in the form of a message which can be sent by supporters to others which states:

Smears claiming Barack Obama doesn’t have a birth certificate aren’t actually about that piece of paper — they’re about manipulating people into thinking Barack is not an American citizen.

However, in January 2011,  Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie stated that he couldn’t find a long-form birth certificate for Obama within the records at the Hawaii Department of Health, contrary to the statement of former Governor Linda Lingle, who insisted that her health department director, Dr. Chiyome Fukino, had seen it.

The Daily Kos is still displaying the image and identifying it as “Obama’s birth certificate.”  A Certificate of Live Birth issued last year to a Hawaiian-born man shows more detail than the Certification of Live Birth on The Daily Kos website.

The COLB image is available at the Politifact website, which labels it “Obama’s birth certificate.”

Dr. Ron Polland has stated that the Certification of Live Birth “does not exist.”  The Post & Email’s photographic expert, Mr. John F. Sweeney, as stated that it is a forgery.

In an interview with the Honolulu Star-Advertiser on January 18, Abercrombie had stated that Obama’s birth information “actually exists in the archives, written down …”

A researcher who traveled to Hawaii last summer found Obama’s birth information in a birth index book containing information from the years 1960-64.  However, she stated that there was “an anomaly” in that particular record book as compared to the other birth indexes, which was the word “duplicate” appearing above Obama’s name.  Another difference between the 1960-64 birth index and others was the topic of a recent finding disclosed by a blogger.

The Hawaii Department of Health has insisted on protecting Obama’s vital records, citing state privacy laws.  Was the birth index data put in by computer entry after the fact, perhaps in 2007 or 2008 when he announced his candidacy for the presidency?  Did Obama believe that he could convince the public of a Hawaii birth so as to satisfy the “natural born Citizen” requirement found in Article II, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution?

Did he believe that having a British-citizen father was inconsequential?

Obama has admitted to having been born with dual citizenship.  However, was he really born with solely British citizenship?

The Post & Email tried several times to ask Factcheck.org about the Certification of Live Birth which the organization posted as Obama’s official birth certificate in August 2008, but we received no response.  We cited Factcheck’s original story, although at this time, none of the links from the article appear to work.  The link to the statement of Dr. Chiyome Fukino now directs to the current page of the Honolulu Star-Advertiser.

Recently Donald Trump has raised questions about Obama’s Certification of Live Birth which appear to indicate that he or his staff have performed research on the differences between the image which Obama’s former press secretary, Robert Gibbs, claimed was Obama’s “birth certificate” and an original, “long-form” paper document containing the signature of the attending physician, registrar’s stamp, information about the parents and their birthplaces, and residence.  The firestorm began when he appeared on “The View” and called for Obama to release his birth certificate.

Trump recently stated that Obama’s original birth certificate could indicate that Obama was designated a Muslim at birth.  Bill O’Reilly and Glenn Beck of Fox News are now feeling a bit “uncomfortable” and in response, appear to be marginalizing Trump.

Are they afraid of what will happen if it is proven that Obama was not born in Hawaii or anywhere in the United States?  What will that mean for their careers?  Why does Beck say he wants to see presidential candidates who don’t say “provocative things”?  What about journalistic investigations of candidates?

On April 1, it was announced that Trump will be appearing on Fox News Channel’s Fox & Friends regularly on Monday mornings.  The Post & Email recently wrote to Roger Ailes, President of Fox News Channel, regarding the dearth of coverage about the unanswered and uninvestigated questions on Obama’s birthplace, parentage, background, and eligibility for the presidency.

Several African publications claimed that Obama was born in Kenya prior to his announcement to seek the office of President.

    Not only did FactCheck.org restore the COLB image, yesterday it posted an article that is laughably bad in debunking the claims that Donald Trump has brought up on this issue. See: http://factcheck.org/2011/04/donald-youre-fired/

      Please allow me to take a crack at the six points of contention that FactCheck.org has with Trump’s claims:

      1. I understand that Kenyans who heard the tape say that she clearly could be saying that Obama was born in Mombasa and that others on the tape could be heard trying to get her to instead say he was born in Hawaii.

      2. I understand the hospital yanked the letter from its website the day after WorldNetDaily asked about its authenticity. Furthermore, there is nothing at the hospital proclaiming this in the public areas, not to mention the irregularities of the White House letterhead that this letter was written on as well as the WH refusing to verify its authenticity: http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=105280

      3. I’ve read articles to the contrary, stating that the COLB may or may not be accepted in applications for passports and by others as proof of citizenship. Here’s one such article: http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=104599

      4. Strange … others are getting copies of long-form birth certificates, so why not Obama? See: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=1646821495774&set=a.1086340484099.2013840.1394022018&theater

        Here’s the rest …

        5. What Trump was really saying was that Obama’s grandparents may have fraudulently registered his birth in Hawaii so that they could obtain a COLB for him, which then would be provided to the papers via the state health department. See: http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=104678

        6. It’s one thing to wonder what kind of upbringing Obama had such as in Indonesia; it’s entirely another thing to not have anyone corroborate that Obama was born and raised as an infant in Hawaii.

    Barbi Dee,

    Thank you so much for calling Boozman’s office. I also called today and this is their response:

    I just got off the phone to Senator Boozman’s office. The staffer, Holly Wilson I believe is correct, said when I told her my name, “we have been told not to talk about the subject you always want to talk about.” I asked if it was just me, or if they are not talking to anyone about “the subject”. She said she, ”could not remember the last time someone had called about, “the subject”, and that most people wanted to talk about what was going on in Congress now”. Sounds like another attempt to make Obama’s eligibility, the only issue that really matters at this point, “just a distraction”.

    This indicates to me that, no matter how fruitless we may think it is, we need to start all over again calling, emailing, faxing and even sending an occasional snail mail to our Congressional offices. Make them refuse to answer if that is what they want to do. Let them know the subject, (the Constitution), is anything but the “distraction” they want it to be.

    Boozman’s number in DC is:

    202-224-4843

    Anyone who wants to take a moment to see if they, “are not taking questions on this subject” at Boozman’s office, please do call and let us know what their response was.

    Thanks

    I got breaking news! Miki Booth has been able to obtain a Long-Form Birth Certificate (Certificate of Live Birth) from the Hawaii DOH. Miki has posted the image of the birth certificate on her FaceBook page. The Certificate of Live Birth shows the hospital name and has a date of March 15, 2011. In addition, the Birth Certificate is stamped with State Register of Hawaii who is Alvin Onaka. Check it out if you can.

      So, the jacklags must have realized their error. That is, unless this one isn’t the same one they had posted before. Three or four different versions have been presented over the last three years. Maybe someone with a good eye and who knows the difference(s) between the three or four versions presented will take a look and see if it’s the same version that FactCheck posted before or if it’s one of the others. (I’m wondering if perhaps the different entities that have had the different versions posted have gotten together and selected one and only one of the versions for all to present.)

        I believe Dr. Ron Polland has proven beyond any doubt that all four versions of Obama’s COLB which have been posted online during the past three years originated from the same source document due the fact that they all have the exact same number of very small marks (“artifacts”) in the exact same locations. As further indication of deception/fraud, each sucessive version was more detailed than the previous version — the first version posted on the DailyKos/Obama’s campaign web-site had the “CERTIFICATE NO:” blacked out and did not have a seal or signature, the second version showed the “CERTIFICATE NO:” but still lacked a seal and signature, etc., etc. — yet each version was tauted as “Obama’s original birth certificate”, an impossibility since there can’t be four different versions of any “original” document.

    To Sharon Rondeau…………………………..
    To the best of my knowledge the CERTIFICATION OF LIVE BIRTH is NOT ISSUED by Hawaiian hospitals.Only the CERTIFICATE of live birth is issued by the birthing hospital. Perhaps I have misread what you stated in earlier issues of Postand email. At no time is the CERTIFICATION of live birth to be seen as a CERTIFICATE of live birth. That is what Soetoro has to somehow erase. I PERSONALLY BELIEVE THAT HE HAS NO LONG FORM ON FILE AT HDOH.KAPIOLANI HAS YET TO CONFIRM THE BIRTH OF SOETORO IN THEIR HOSPITAL. i STILL VERY MUCH DOUBT THE VALIDITY OF HIS ALLEGED BIRTH AT HAWAII.

    Factcheck pulled it off in 2008 when the main stream media used them as the source to validate and legitimize Obama. There is no main stream media including Fox that will reveal the truth and it will only be the internet and a swiftboat type organization to ensure the truth is revealed, otherwise 4 more years of Obama.

    Sharon:

    The image you posted above is not what Factcheck posted on June 16, 2008. In fact, your image (@ 450 x 442 pixels) is a direct reduction of the Fight The Smears image (585 x 575) generated by a PHP script.

    As I noted below, this 585 x 575 is the “OFFICIAL OBAMA BITH CERTIFICATE,” the significance of that designation cannot be understated.

    It means that the Obama Campaign/Administration only recognizes this image as Zero’s COLB. Not Factcheck’s image or photos.

    Factcheck had one of the five full-size images (2550 x 3300 pixels) in existence. Their copy is the closest to the original forgery, or should I say, their copy did not need to be trimmed, reduced, stretched, or otherwise manipulated.

    It did not come from the Obama Campaign. The first COLB posted on Obama’s Campaign website was actually in a PDF file first. Because that format is not conducive to displaying, they extracted the image from it as a 1024 x 1000 px JPG. It was made directly from the Daily Kos image, which was made from the Factcheck image.

    Politifact’s full-size images (two of which they had on their server but did not post) and two of TampaBay.com’s image (two others on Politifact’s sister site), were also derived from the Factcheck image.

    I called my senator’s office, today. I had contacted him two months ago about Obama’s eligibility and just today got a reply in the form of a “form letter”. He claimed that Obama’s COLB was good enough for him and besides, his long form was on file in Hawaii. Furthermore, his mother was born in Kansas and that automatically makes him a U.S. citizen.

    Senator Burr’s office repeatedly told me “that was their stance”. I told them that they needed to update the lies in their form letter as they were obsolete.

      Same kind of letter I recently got from Senator John Boozman’s office.

      Here is the text from the letter I received a couple of weeks ago:

      Thank you for contacting me to express your concern over the question of President-Elect Obama’s citizenship. It is always good to hear from you.

      As you may know, Article II of the U.S. Constitution says, “No Person except a natural born citizen, or a Citizen of the United States…shall be eligible to the Office of President.” Acts of Congress in 1790 and 1795 clarify that “the children of citizens of the United States…shall be considered as natural born citizens.” In June 2008, Mr. Obama released an electronic copy of the certificate bearing the seal of the State of Hawaii Department of Health showing that Barack Hussein Obama II was born to mother Stanley Ann Dunham in Honolulu, HI at 7:34 p.m. on Aug. 4, 1961. While there are some concerns over the validity of that birth certificate, Hawaii state health director Dr. Chiyome Fukino and Alvin Onaka, the registrar of vital statistics, examined and vouched for the authenticity of the President-elect Obama’s birth certificate. The document has also been reviewed and deemed authentic by experts at the University of Pennsylvania’s Anneburg Public Policy Center. In addition, the Supreme Court has denied hearing any of the cases brought before them regarding this issue and President-Elect Obama was certified as the 44th President of the United States on January 8, 2009.

      Again, thank you for contacting me on this very important issue. Please be sure to visit our website at http://www.boozman.senate.gov. I look forward to you continued correspondence.

      When I called Boozman’s office after receiving this letter one of the comments his saffer made, among other BS, was, when asked about Obama’s father; “we are not getting into who his father was”, even though they are claiming the BS online COLB is real and it states who his claimed father is. Also, I was told, “the leadership of Congress had a meeting and decsided to take no action on this issue.” That’s a real shock! The same people who would go to prison if this was investigated have decided not to investigate it!!

      End…

      They are in lockdown mode to protect themselves, and especially Congressional leadership from the consequences of this historic fraud being exposed and prosecuted. Boozman probably has less involvment in this than most in Congress, but he failed to speak out when he should have and is now, evidently, directing his staff to lie to his constituents.

      Sad day for America for sure……….

      Boozman’s office number in DC is 202-224-4843.

      It would be great if anyone reading this would call Boozman’s office on this. I would appreciate it very much.

The one posted on fight the smears was the BC dated June of 2007. It preceeded the new one posted in 2008. There can be only ONE BC. In addition a CERTIFICATION of LIVE BIRTH is not issued by hospitals in Hawaii. Only the CERTIFICATE of live birth is hospital generated. ALL of the ALLEGED BCs posted were CERTIFICATIONSolb,NOT CERTIFICATES olb. They are given by the HDOH to people who are registeredby relatives at HDOH as having been born in Hawaii. These are not long form BCs.

    “OBAMA” is as legit as a “3 DOLLAR BILL”! Trump is right either A. he does not have a birth certificate: or B. he does not like what his birth certificate says! Either way its a mute point. OBAMA even if born in HAWAII, is not a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN (NBC), as his father was never a CITIZEN! The higher Constitutional standard (NBC) defined as “BORN on US SOIL of CITIZEN PARENTS (2 or both PARENTS must be “CITIZENS”!) To meet the NBC standard for POTUS Obama’s father would have to have been a “NATURALIZED CITIZEN”

    I know because I was BORN a “DUAL CITIZEN” to a US SERVICEMAN father & GERMAN MOTHER in a foreign land! Had to renounce GERMAN CITIZENSHIP at age 18! I was born with USA CITIZENSHIP but do not meet the NBC STANDARD on 2 counts , born on FOREIGN SOIL and mother was not a USA citizen at the time of birth! She became a ‘NATURALIZED CITIZEN” 7 years latter, and had my BROTHER who is a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN!

    If it reappears, save it to disk and check its file size, dimensions, and Exif data – if still there. it might be one reduced in file size with its metadata removed (Exif data) like they did with all of the photographs they reduced signficantly in file size and quality.

I have a hard time imagining Barky voluntarily putting himself in dangerous situations but no difficulty at all imagining him smuggling drugs from Afghanistan into the US.

    Joe Miller has been work for the federal government at the CBO for over a year.

    Jess Henig apparently left Factcheck in January to go work for a very obscure website called grist.org. However, Ms. Henig is not listed there. A search of any articles, blog or any internet postings by Ms. Henig since January fails to find any. Grist.org does not list Ms. Henig as an employee or contributor.

    So one ‘author’ works for the government and the other is now essentially missing.

    Here is another specific URL that has more detail.

    http://www.factcheck.org/askfactcheck/has_obamas_birth_certificate_been_disclosed.html

    ‘The “secrecy” ended when Tommy Vietor at the Obama campaign sent a message to us and other reporters saying, “I know there have been some rumors spreading about Obama’s citizenship, so I wanted to make sure you all had a copy of his birth certificate.” A digital image was attached.’

    So Factcheck editor clearly points the finger at Tommy Vietor as the provider of the image, the image they have now removed. Do they not have faith in that image? Is that image a fraud? If so, what about the claimed source – Tommy Vietor?

    http://www.whorunsgov.com/Profiles/Tommy_Vietor

    “Vietor was one of the earliest members of Team Obama, having worked as deputy press secretary on Obama’s 2004 Senate campaign.”

    So is Factcheck indirectly now saying that an insider to the administration provided them a fake image?

    It seems as if there is electronic document shredding going on at the blogs.

    Funny thing about this. I have researched this document and can find no evidence of forgery. I cannot find a single copy of Madeline Dunham signature to cross check the document. I would ask Dr. Polland to look at the original images, if you will provide them, to see if he can find evidence of alteration. You might want to think about presenting the certificate to the DoH in Hawaii to have them CONFIRM or DENY that it is an original document or matches the original record…as they are required to do by Hawaii state law. Just some random thoughts.

      Unfortunately I think it is one (see also the comments in the Post-and-Email article you referenced to).
      The letters are too perfect for a 1961 typewriter, they are a modern computer font.
      Also the HRS 338-17.8 was not enacted until 1982.
      Besides, why would it list “Place of birth: Honolulu” with a footnote saying it was not Honolulu? Why not list “Place of birth: Kenya” right away?

      So I think this is a bad forgery (compare this to the Lucas Kenyan BC which does not have anything that plainly raises your eyebrows) meant to fool or distract us. (And possibly divide us into “true vs. forged” factions battling one another when they should be working together.)

      > to have them CONFIRM or DENY that it is an original document or matches the original record…as they are required to do by Hawaii state law

      I don’t think there is any state law that requires the state to confirm or deny if data on a piece of paper match the original record. After all, that’s exactly the privacy stuff that Obama/Soetoro hides his BC behind.

    My favorite part of this whole mess is watching how Trump handles the media interviews. They rudely interrupt all the time, like they do everybody else they are after, and try to agitate the person being interviewed. Trump just calmly talks on until they stop interrupting him, as if nothing is happening!. He is “unflappable”….and makes them look like exactly like the rude childish people they are. He simply quietly and calmly continues what he is saying, as if he is talking to respectful adults, and then finally you start to hear him again, as they finally back off and quiet down, as he simply completely ignores them. They remind me of tiny chihuahuas, barking and biting, lots of noise and no substance.

    Here you can get the legal facts, under the U.S. Constitution as to why Obama is not legal as President. There is also proof on this vid that shows newspaper articles from Africa (one of the papers is based in Texas, also) that say Obama is “Kenyan-Born”.

    When you looked at that on “fight the smears” you missed what everyone else has too. It says right on that same page you mention above that Obama is a “native born” citizen instead of a “natural born” citizen as required by the constitution to be POTUS. They have hidden it in plain sight because they knew, and most likely expected this all along.

    I really don’t care about the Birth Certificate; it is the fact of Barry’s ADOPTION by Lolo Soetoro that people are bypassing. Barry became a citizen of Indonesia when he was adopted and lost his US citizenship. Even if Barry was renaturalized, which there is no record of this happening, he still would not have qualified to be a President.

      I would like someone to address a position on the adoption issue. It was said that if a child is born in the United States, that subsequent action by his parents can not divest him of his citizenship. In other words, the act of renunciation is personal and must be made by the child after attaining the age of majority and must be a conscious deliberate action and a dependent minor child is not capable of renouncing citizenship.

        WHY bother?? The geographical location is ONLY important when it is KNOWN (and documented) that BOTH parents ARE indeed citizens. BOTH parents CAN BE US citizens and the birth take place IN OTHER THAN United States “soil” AND that child is NOT a “natural born” citizen — as was the case with John McCain who was born in a Panamanian Hospital AND therefore Panama CAN claim him AS a citizen of Panama.

        AKA has steadfastly repeated that his father “was Barack H. Obama a citizen-subject of Britain as he, the father, was BORN IN KENYA and was NOT a U.S. citizen! Isn’t that ALL the we need to know to disqualify him? WHY nit-pick irrelevant tho’ interesting details?

        I think our armed forces would have a problem with that interpretation.

        > Isn’t that ALL the we need to know to disqualify him?

        No, because that might be a distraction (Sun Tzu, The Art of War). Just imagine if we focused only on the dual citizenship issue, then at some point Obama/Soetoro pulls out some kind of proof showing him to be the child of Frank Marshall Davis (or any other US citizen father)?
        (Personally I don’t think the public would care much, also I don’t see how lying about your parents can render you ineligible.)
        Or imagine it turns out the de Vattel argument is wrong (after all, it’s complicated, we’re divided on that issue and chances are neither SCOTUS nor the general public is going to side with us in that regard), but there in fact is a foreign birth that nobody bothered researching, believing the parent citizenship issue would be enough to bring hin down?

        I think we shouldn’t discard anything too easily. The key point will be to decide which strategy is most promising for the imminent goal (ousting of Obama/Soetoro as acting president) or which leads probably aren’t worth following.

    Until there is a hearing in open court where Dr Polland can testify the Factcheck image will be swept under the rug. His next announcement will either be he will not seek re-election for some reason or that he will but that he has been “grandfathered” into the qualifications by his previous election. In any case those who have been involved in the conspiracy are still open to be charged with criminal acts provided the statute of limitations does not run out before a court someplace accepts the charges.

      It doesn’t matter if the Factcheck image is ever proven a forgery and the forgers punished. Certifications of Live Birth aren’t proof enough of one’s identity to be accepted by passport offices or government security clearances. So, if the DNC had given the okay based on this or any other COLB, (they didn’t, but if they had…), authentic or otherwise, then the DNC dropped the ball and should be held accountable. Go after Factcheck and/or the forger(s), too, but go after the DNC absolutely and primarily.

    Sharon, if you can’t get a hold of the Kapiolani Hospital, you could try contacting its fundraising organization, Kapiolani Health Foundation through its communications director. They published the letter from Obama claiming to be born at Kapiolani Hospital in the foundation’s centennial magazine: 100 Years of Caring. Prior to the release of that publication, a spokesperson for the hospital claimed that HIPAA prevented them from either confirming or denying that Obama was born there — without his authorization. This means that they are violating HIPAA if they did NOT get his permission to publish the letter. That letter is made out to the hospital, not the foundation. If they had Obama’s permission to publish the letter, then the hospital can now legally confirm if Obama was indeed born there. Someone should hold them accountable to either confirm Obama’s birth or to turn them in for violating HIPAA for releasing this information without permission.

    Try and get the the CEO on for an interview.

    Now why wouldn’t the birthplace of the 44th President not want to advertise that?

    If some white heat started to come down on Kapiolani then his birth story would soon become untenable.

    Picture the absurdity of the hospital not wanting to go on the record of being the birthplace.

He recently reported that the hospital has a copy of the letter Obama sent during hosp. fundraiser on hospital’s 100 yr. Anniversary claiming it was the place of his birth. Copy of the letter is posted in an administrative area of the hosp and the original supposedly in vault. Corsi requested seeing the original to have it inspected by expert document examiner and hospital said that ain’t gonna happen.

      “Go to Kapiolani and get them on the record.”

      That’s the kind of thing that news reporters used to do. They’d show up repeatedly, each time with their camera operators in tow, cameras rolling, so that their facial expressions, body language and behavior, even as they refused to be interviewed, answered “No comment,” and tried to push the doors shut, would be captured on film and played back for viewers of the 10 o’clock news. Seeing themselves on the news, appearing guilty as sin as they refused to speak with reporters, would often prompt them to change their minds and grant those interviews or at least offer a short, written statement as some kind of response. Anything to make themselves look better than they did while running from the reporters.

      Oh, the good old days…when news reporters sniffed out news, investigated it, and then reported on it, and left the political commentary to the political opinion shows, passing judgment to judges and God and shaping public opinion and policy to the public. They never said it back then nor did any of the news stations use it as their slogan, but most any of them could have said honestly, “We report. You decide.”

      Yep, back in those days, at least a half dozen reporters would have gone after this story with a vengeance instead of going after half of their viewers, instead.

    I’m the reason that image is gone. Factcheck is not the only one to remove their COLB image. Politifact did, too, replacing the 811 x 786 image they used throughout 2008 and 2008 until I caught their sister site, Tampabay.com, using an image identical to Factcheck’s (except that the resolution was changed to 200 from 300 and they added the comment, “Barack Obama’s birth certificate. Courtesy of the Obama Campaign.”

    Every article Politifact ran on Obama’s birth certificate, they used their cropped image.

    Every time Tampabay ran the exact same article, they used the full-size image.

    I also caught them issuing a falsely-backdated article that was released on June 25th but had a publishing date of June 13.

    I have also been all over Factcheck’s involvement in the forgery scam.

    Do people realize that the Obama Campaign only recognizes the small, cropped image (585 x 575) as being Obama’s “official” birth certificate?

    Not the Factcheck copy.

    Not the Politifact copy

    Not the Daily kops copy.

    Not the Factcheck photographs.

    This happened because I discovered that the Obama Campaign NEVER sent any image copies out to anyone.

    I know who did and who made the original forgery. I also know the chain of custody of all the images.

      I’m open to anything but I’m curious as to why you didn’t immediately SHOW and PROVE these claims when they are SO monumental and damning, if true. For example, you never backed up your Okubo claims.

      Have you read Miss Tickly’s most recent post regarding the COLB? Her post is about how the COLB shows “date filed by registrar” instead of “date accepted by state registrar”, and that “filed” means that a birth certificate never existed since it was never “accepted”. Given that the COLB is a forgery, why would they not have written “date accepted by the state registrar” on the COLB and avoid this issue? I suppose it could be that they did not know the difference, or that the COLB they used to forge from also said “date filed by registrar”. Your thoughts?

        Miss Tickly has not done any research on what Hawaii actually puts on their COLBs.

        EVERY COLB issued since 2006 has DATE FILED on it regardless of when the birth registrant was actually born. I have a 2006 COLB for a person who was born in 1940. It says DATE FILED like the dozen other genuine COLB copies I have.

        Also, the Seals used on all COLBS are of two varieties and none of them looked like the pencil sketch she presented. That Seal is the Directors Seal. The COLB seal has all of the features recommended for an official seal except the stars in between the top and bottom legends (they use bullets instead)

      The image is still not visible at the page. I guess the space for the image in the table cell remains because FactCheck is edited by jacklegs.

      Note: “Jackleg,” one of my favorite words, is defined by dictionary.com as “an unskilled or unscrupulous itinerant worker or practitioner.” “Jackleg” can also be used as an adjective, meaning unskilled, untrained, incompetent and/or without the accepted standards of one’s profession.

      Try using the word “jackleg” some time. Say something like, “Barky most likely turned in jackleg work in college,” “FactCheck is edited by jacklegs,” or “We’re stuck with that train wreck in the White House because there are too many jackleg voters in this country.” If you don’t like it right away, don’t worry.
