Graphics explained, Obama Birth Certificate

Not just layers, embedded action/edit history shows rotation & size alterations…

UPDATING THIS POST……..So, if it was just a scan of a document, maybe even with a character recognition filter (which I am not convinced of at all – there’s no way)…what was the purpose of all the actions? Or in other terms “edits”? For example, one layer was rotated and the transparency was altered. It was rotated 90 degrees. It was re-sized. As you can see from the history list of actions, there are numerous edits. Edited: under the layers/info/links tab, view the links. Double click on them.

  1. I have an email forwarded to me that has obama’s kenya birth certificate and the documents he filed to get financial aid as a foriegn exchange student. Anyone want to see them?

  2. This document went through quite a process to be produced.

    1) a page in the binder was scanned into a computer. At this point it ceases to be a legal document.
    2) the page is white and the letters are black. There are black smudges over the area that didn’t have any paper over the scanner.
    3) Someone used a some editing software to clip out the document from the background.
    4) Someone centered the image and printed it out.
    5) The result didn’t look very official so they printed it out on a laser printer on a page of safety paper with the green pattern.
    6) Someone used the official stamp to certify it.
    7) Judith Corley who is a lawyer for the President handling personal legal matters flew out to Honolulu to hand carry back two documents. At this point, chain-of-custody is violated and the document cannot be used in a court of law. Why not use certified mail to courts that have current cases that could use this document as evidence.
    8) At the White House? the document was scanned again and modified to place the White House copyright in the upper left corner.
    9) The document was then converted to a PDF at a low resolution. This would remove evidence of electronic modification and have such a low resolution the document experts couldn’t analyze it.
    10) The Certificate of Live Birth was then placed on the White House server so everyone could make a copy and modify it to suit themselves.

    So now we have a copy of a copy of a copy of a copy of an original.

    Anyone who would like to get semi-official long-form birth certificate should Google “fake birth certificate”. It would cost about $200. I’ve been thinking about getting a graduation certificate from Harvard Law School for my dog. For $2,000 you can get the certificate and they will create an announcement in the Honolulu Star Advertiser dated August 8, 1961 as a bonus.

  3. Hey Sophic those might be just default actions that come with Illustrator. Mine has those on CS5 as well as older versions of Illustrator that I have on other systems. Just to give you a heads up on that.
