Was Obama's Certificate of Birth Photoshopped?

It is the policy of the State of Hawaii not to disclose personal information especially birth records. We must all respect that policy even though Sen. Obama has to be put underneath a microscope.

The object in question should not be the pixelation from the interpolation of the image after scanned, but the lack of notarization on the scan. We can see there is the date stamp on it, but there is no State of Hawaii notarization nor is there a signature stamp which are both embossed through the backside of the sheet.

Although I work at the same department in Hawaii, there are some things I cannot do, but I can indeed probably find out if notarization are required to make a birth certificate valid.

When you view a document online, it has usually been "optimised" for the web, to decrease file size so that it doesnt take 30 minutes to download and show up on the page you are viewing.

These pixellated areas you see are just the result of optimising an image for the web, not some sinister evidence of image editing.

Hang on a sec, I have a question,

in Indonesia he was know as Barry Soetoro, registered under the name Barry Soetoro at his Indonesian school.

Who the heck is this guy and what the heck is his real name?

curious minds want to know.

Blogger admits Hawaii birth certificate forgery, subverting Obama claims

Jay McKinnon, a self-described Department of Homeland Security-trained document specialist, has implicated himself in the production of fake Hawaii birth certificate images similar to the one endorsed as genuine by the Barack Obama campaign, and appearing on the same Daily Kos blog entry where the supposedly authentic document appears.

If an Obama Birth Certificate Was Forged This is How It Would Be Done

Polrik's analysis on the forgery (Source: IsraelInsider Talkback)

Polarik - U.S.A
07/05/2008 22:40 IT Sorry to disagree with other theorists on this matter, but my analyses prove that OpenDNA's images -- both of them -- came directly from the Kos image. Absolutely, 100%, no doubt. The "little dot" as one person has called it is actually an anomaly -- a piece of junk on the scanner glass or on the COLB itself.

Regardless, it is a very clearly seen, ROCK, on the Kos image that appears like a large, but fuzzy PEBBLE on the OpenDNA image -- a definite sign of being copied.

What is throwing people off are the differences in the resolution of the images and not the size or quality.

Nearly all monitors are scaled at 96 DPI, which is why web images are scaled to 96 DPI -- to look best when seen by a monitor. The ONLY reason, then, why OpenDNA's image appears of "higher quality" is there difference in resolution.

OpenDNA's images are 800 x 781 - exact scale reductions from 2427 x 2369, and by changing the resolution to 96 DPI from 300 DPI was not done just to make them look better -- but also to make one think that, "Hey maybe this was the original image derived from a scanner, since the default resolution of scanners is 96 DPI."

But, when you look at the Kos image and OpenDNA's images simiarly-sized, under edge detection, the "dot" looks huge compared to the tiny dot of OpenDNA's.

When you enlarge OpenDNA's image to Kos size, that "well-defined, rock" looks positively smeared on OpenDNA's image.

A casualty of causality.

Because of space and visual limitations here, I invite you to visit my my blog,, where I compare "apples to apples" instead of "apples to guacamole," by slicing off the upper right-hand corner of each image after setting all images to the same size and resolution, namely 2427 x 2369, 96 DPI. All images were saved at 100% JPG quality, with slice dimensions being around 786 x 268px., without image enhancements because the differences are plainly seen by the naked eye.

I also left the images unmarked because, by now, you should know that the "dot" in question lies right below the E in "CERTIFICATION" and directly to the right of "STATE OF HAWAII."

My thesis is this:

In the beginning, there was "Dr X." Dr X. took a certified COLB, OR an image of one that DID NOT BELONG TO OBAMA, scanned or copied it, and then proceeded to Photoshop out two of the three folds, and all of the field headers and data, using pieces of the background and the HEALING tool to blend them in -- that is why the Kos seal and signature block are nearly invisible to the naked eye.

Then, with a blank canvas on which to paint his "masterpiece of fakery," freshly typed in the filed names and the MODIFIED data fields to make it look like a COLB from BHO.

Dr X then gave it up to the Kos, who then proceeded to proudly display it on its web page on June 12th. Before "Smears" posted their copy of the same image, on the same day, the authenticity was challenged by OpenDNA, and produced two of his own faked COLBs as evidence of how easy it is to make a fake.

I gotta give him poetic props for using "Haye I. B. Ahforgerie" as a data field. Nothing says "faked" like "Hey, I be a forgery."

Realizing the dumb move of posting a really good copy of the fake that was open to inspection, the Smears shmucks pulled it down and replaced it with one almost half its size, and not proportional, either, so that when you enlarged it, the "OHSM" was so blurry, it looked like "OHBM" as in OH B-ah M-ah.

BOTTOM LINE: If Obama's COLB really DOES EXIST somewhere (which I'm beginning to doubt), we have NOT seen it, and probably will never see it.

These forged images all came from one, "proto-image," which, despite what people can make appear on it with image enhancement, proves only that Dr X. had to start with a COLB template.

But, and you can bank on it, EVERYTHING from the first fold on down was recreated graphically.

And not convincingly, too.

signature and embossed seal comment from Polarik (Source: blog)

Comment by Polarik | 2008-07-03 15:03:24

The signature block on the reverse side of a Hawaiian “Certification of Live Birth” should contain the name, Alvin T. Onaka, State Registrar and Chief of the Office of Health Status Monitoring of the Hawaii Department of Health.

There are seal stamps that are attached to 6″ long arms — like a long stapler — specifically made for embossing the middle of an 8 1/2″ wide document.

The embossing seal is an ink stamp with raised ridges meant to put depressions in the paper that can be felt by hand, in addition to the inked image.

This combination is very hard to duplicate on an original document. It cannot be Photoshopped.

Someone would have to make a duplicate of the embossing seal itself.

Obama Birth Certificate Issue Won't Go Away

In a rambling interview with the Daily Kos — the blog site that published the supposedly authentic Barack Hussein Obama birth certificate and his own birth certificate manipulations in the same June 12 post, Jay McKinnon, aka opendna, says he manipulated the Obama birth certificate to create a blank Hawaii birth certificate as a "template," supposedly for a John McCain birth certificate. But he says it was not an attempt at deception but a "lame joke" that he now regrets.

But in trying to avoid legal trouble by diminished the significance of manipulating electronic images, he further undermines the explicit claims of the Barack Obama campaign and the Daily Kos itself that the posted images of his purported birth certificate prove that the candidate was Hawaii-born. McKinnon, who says he was trained in document analysis by the Department of Homeland Security, says it's impossible to assess the authenticity of a birth certificate from image files rather than paper documents. "It should be self-evident that a JPEG [image file] of a scanned official document cannot be valid."

Why would Obama admit to the authenticity of this document?

They could just be compression artifacts.

In fact, they probably are.
