  1. It is time for someone real in the White House.

  2. It is sad that it looks like he is going to get away with this farce. It seems the majority of Americas apathy toward government and politics has created a monster and have turned a blind eye. The media is in bed with this guy and no one with power will step forward to let the truth be known. We are screwed for 1 year and 8 more months.

  3. Here is a link where Obama claims to be born in Kenya

  4. I compared his copy to the Nordyke twins’ and his looks nothing like theirs. I also noticed that the registrar’s names are different. The registrar on Obama’s is UK le Lee. (how clever) I am no authority, but this copy only raises more questions. I am also encouraged that Trump will now have his investigators go over this with a fine tooth comb. But, this does not put it to rest as the question of his being a natural born citizen is still not answered.

    • OMG! I didn’t realize what the name of the registrar was until I saw your post! I agree – that name alone raises more questions and doubts than I originally had!

  5. Hey Sophic, the OCRers are out in full force trying to do damage control. I posted this on Fox to hopefully inform some folks against this ludicrous claim.

    Look out folks. There is a new movement. Let’s call them OCRers who now believe that an OCR scan will scan a document, pick up some text, even cursive, while leaving other text, that is clearly able to be recognized, alone and then rasterize it so it is then not searchable. I mean that sounds like an OCR scan….scan a document and then make it unsearchable. Educate yourself against these Obama worshippers, they are clearly mentally ill as much as the liberals.

    • I like that…the OCRers. Has a nice ring. Thank you for posting on Fox. I’m not sure if they’re awake over there or not though. We need to get the truth out there. Hannity (or was it Mark) was on 820a.m. telling people to let it go and callers were saying “why”? It’s not over. It actually just got a whole lot worse with this case of fraud.

      Posted by thesophic | April 28, 2011, 1:26 am
      • Agreed. Again nice work today on your discovery. Your work will hopefully change history.

  6. Good job!
    I knew some one in this country would have the knowledge to round up the inconsistencies in one place.
    I have read that the hospital name is not correct either, that the name used on the BC is the name after that hospital merged with the maternity center where Obama was born…
    Will keep on watching for new items.

  7. “I just checked the official web site for Kapiolani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital and according to the information there, the name of the hospital at the time of his birth should have been Kauikeolani Children’s Hospital. According to the web site the name didn’t change to Kapiolani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital until Kauikeolani Children’s Hospital merged with Kapi‘olani Maternity Home in 1978. So how could his official long form birth certificate that was generated in 1961 have the name of the hospital that wasn’t created until 1978?” – From a poster on

  8. So, you can download the PDF yourself, open it in a trial copy of Illustrator and see for yourself to make your own decisions. I just did and there’s no way that’s a real copy of a birth certificate. No way.

  9. Okay, McCain was born to a Naval Admiral on a Navy base in Panama. Where an American base sits is deemed American territory. McCain is certainly American.

    The First Congress, on March 26, 1790, approved an act that declared, “The children of citizens of the United States that may be born beyond sea, or outside the limits of the United States, shall be considered as natural-born citizens of the United States.” That would seem to include McCain, whose parents were both citizens and whose father was a Navy officer stationed at the U.S. naval base in Panama at the time of John’s birth in 1936.

    Now, Obama’s father was Kenyan and not a U.S. citizen and his mother enrolled to Washington State University August 19 1961

    That is just 11 days after giving birth to Barack Hussein Obama II.

    None of this negates the fact that Obama has just committed a criminal act by emitting a false birth certificate.

  10. To the author of this blog.

    Where did you obtain the copies of this document? From the office of the President, or from,, etc.?

    You do realize that the State Registrar of Hawaii made a certified copy of the ORIGINAL document (which is in a vault in Hawaii) and sent it to the President, to whose staff made copies for CNN, Fox, etc., etc.

    Fox, Cnn, etc., etc. then scanned their copies and uploaded to their websites.

    Now if you’re truly a graphic artist or w/e you claim to be, you would realize that “layers” don’t carry on to PHYSICALLY photocopied documents.

    Unless… You’re an utter buffoon.

    Posted by William | April 27, 2011, 7:54 pm
    • If you’re a professional graphics designer, you’d know that layers – unless flattened will be accessible in a PDF. The original PDF was posted by ABC NEWS this morning. Yes, I understand that there are no digital properties nor layers to a tangible piece of paper. That is why this is fraud. Did you receive the tangible paper form, or did you view the digital form – same as everyone else? Rhetorical question of course.

      Posted by thesophic | April 27, 2011, 8:55 pm
  11. blow up the pdf from the white house to 3200%.
    go to “Child´s First Name”.
    the “R” in “BARACK” has a totally different pixelation.

  12. My IP has been banned I think.

  13. Hey Sophic….can you still access the Fox forum?

    Posted by Cruciblethorn | April 27, 2011, 6:37 pm
  14. Bravo, thesophic! Agreed, no one outside of the high-end graphics industry can even begin to grasp the concept of this ridiculous file. And yes, the government does hire the stupid and unskilled, so some designer thought they were doing their job creating something that can easily be picked apart, especially by those of us in the industry for over twenty years. Totally fake. Illustrator proves it, Photoshop can’t. If they’d had any brains, they would have made it a flat image PDF instead of this. I also agree that birth certificates have been stamped with a seal and the impression and shadows from that would show up on any scan. Mine from 1967 certainly did, when I scanned it for my own records.

  15. Obama’s mother was born and raised in Kansas. Irrespective of where the birth occurred, Obama was a US citizen, under US law, when he took his first breath.

    You people know your own Constitution and Laws, right?

    Posted by Stu | April 27, 2011, 6:02 pm
    • @Stu…you are getting off track. We are not talking about his color. We are not talking about his mom. We are talking about the fact that the President of our United States has refused or is unable to release his real birth certificate. The president is not being honest. If you are a true conservative, honesty is something that is important to you, your family, your religion, your morals, your values, etc. He is a huge fraud. I have a problem with that. Since he lied about something so basic to every American, what else is he hiding or has he lied about?

      Posted by thesophic | April 27, 2011, 6:05 pm
    • Just because his mother was born in the U.S. does not make him American. That is not the law. The law is that he, himself, has to be born on or over (airplane) U.S. soil.

      Posted by Bill | April 27, 2011, 6:23 pm
      • John McCain was born to American parents in Panama…is he a citizen?
        I think if his mom was a citizen he is too…

        Posted by Chuck Rees | April 27, 2011, 6:39 pm
      • McCain was born in a Panamanian military base. Is he not an American citizen?

        Posted by May | April 27, 2011, 6:48 pm
    • You are wrong I’m afraid. You can have American parents and be born on foriegn soil and not be a citizen, because you were not born in a location under the jurisdiction of the U.S.

      Posted by Jim Giunta | April 27, 2011, 8:05 pm
    • the laws at that time were different than now. she wasn’t old enough to confer citizenship on him and besides, according to this document (fake or not) and his book his dad is not a citizen, so he’s got duel citizenship at best. not natural born. sorry, but THAT is what the constitution says. Just check world net daily and save us all the trouble of restating everything.

  16. “Thank you thesophic!”
    I noticed differences right away, the date at the bottom Aug-8 and 1961 are from two different typewriters, and the bottoms of some words are cropped off as if the document was cut. I never understood why Obama spent millions to hide his birth certificate, and I’m glad he didn’t use a good forger because no one would be able to tell the difference. It looks like Obama uses people around him, armatures that don’t have a clue how to forge a document! I cannot believe how many people think the COLB was original…and this is downright laughable!! “Our prayers are being answered!” “Trump has Obama on the run….GO DONALD!”

    Posted by Gwen Hughes | April 27, 2011, 6:02 pm
    • @Gwen
      You are very welcome and I agree: Go Trump Go!

      Posted by thesophic | April 27, 2011, 6:07 pm
    • @Gwen – The ‘Aug-8 1961’ date is not typed, it’s stamped with a hand-stamp of they kind where one chooses the month, day and year by rotating various rubber belts (one for month, 2 with individual digits for day, and one for year). You don’t see them used much any more, but we’ve got a few old ones here at work, and they all display the same discontinuity of font/size, from band to band.

  17. im still wondering how he can have a us BC , when in senate race he said many times he was born in kenya ,,,cant believe this govt and new media …they forget ?

    the is is beyond insanity…

  18. My original birth certificate has a seal on it. Every birth certificate has a seal on it from those that I have seen.

    Posted by Bill | April 27, 2011, 5:17 pm
  19. Correct me if I am wrong. But doesn’t the Font used for “Certificate of Live Birth” look like an Arial Type Face? Arial Black to be specific. Arial type face was not created until 1989. Comment?

    Posted by Frank | April 27, 2011, 5:16 pm
    • No, it looks nothing like Arial or Helvetica. 100% certain.

      There’s a guy at Adobe who works with typefaces, he was an expert analyst on the fake Bush docs Dan Rather came up with. He probably still hangs out in their typography forums…

  20. thesophic,

    Good luck getting some of these liberals and unbelievers to understand our trade. They don’t have a clue how design and output works. But nice catch on this.

    Posted by Cruciblethorn | April 27, 2011, 5:15 pm
    • Thank you. Most people think that Photoshop is THE graphic design tool. They haven’t been introduced to vector graphics.

      Posted by thesophic | April 27, 2011, 5:19 pm
      • Yeah I know. I use Illustrator all the time and these liberals know nothing about clipping masks and placing files for output into PDF. Some people are just sheep and always will be.

        Posted by Cruciblethorn | April 27, 2011, 5:21 pm
      • I’ve actually created the old “typewriter” effect myself for various art projects. When I was done it looked like something from the 1930’s. This is so funny watching people buy this crap.

        Posted by Cruciblethorn | April 27, 2011, 5:22 pm
      • I’ve used the Adobe suite for about 20 years…keep in mind the scanner used to create this. Those things can do all sorts of weird stuff, like when you open a WMF in Illy. Even running a raster image through an .ai or .eps format can do very funky stuff.

        This is too simple, IMO, to be the result of attempted fakery. In the end, I’m willing to be a bottle of good wine that the Obama administration has the original document and it looks exactly like the images posted today.

        Posted by JohnO | April 27, 2011, 7:00 pm
  21. hahahahahahahahaha.

    Let me see if I get this right. The U.S. Government, with it’s vast technological resources—the very resources that are used to forge documents that get our operatives around the world through the tightest of security checks—is able to be foiled in just a few hours by a guy with a blog and Photoshop?


    You guys are rich. Thanks for one of the best laughs I’ve had today.

    Posted by Carl | April 27, 2011, 5:07 pm
    • I’m not a guy. This is a fake document. Obama is an idiot. Have a nice day.

      Posted by thesophic | April 27, 2011, 5:14 pm
    • Illustrator not Photoshop. Plus the “US Government with it’s vast technology “gets hacked all the time. I mean if they were so smart would they run up a 14 trillion dollar deficit and keep spending? Your argument is pathetic and lame. They screw up all the time but keep taking that fluoride, it seems to be working.

      Posted by Cruciblethorn | April 27, 2011, 5:19 pm
    • The Very same Government that has been supporting Obama’s atrocities from the beginning? ….Yeah we sure trust THEM!

      Posted by Ed Meyer | April 27, 2011, 7:21 pm
    • Yeah – the US Government with it vast technological resources….taken down by a nobody with a website called Wikileaks….or do you think Julian Assange is a genius?

      Posted by CB11 | May 3, 2011, 7:25 pm
  22. What about the fact that typewriters back then used the uncapitalized L for a one (l). Typewriters didn’t have a 1 (One) key.

    Posted by Linda | April 27, 2011, 4:32 pm
  23. i saw that this was a fake as soon as i saw it i play with photoshop is all i needed and if i can spot it as a fake because of the layer lines…..duh

    Posted by RAVNPHNX` | April 27, 2011, 4:26 pm
  24. This is getting more and more chilling. I have not spent much time giving merit to the “Birther” cause, but I was seeing this before I found this page. Now that I know that there are better-trained eyes than mine seeing this and technically breaking it down … my options for believing Obama have whittled down to nil.

    What now?

    Posted by Patrick Cohan | April 27, 2011, 4:18 pm
    • I know, chilling…. So scary….

      I’m like honestly SO SCARED right now.

    • I have never protested or spoken out until now. Who knows about the other documents he had previously released. When I saw this one, I immediately knew something was wrong. This is a blatant fake. I cannot believe the audacity of this man. This is malicious. He KNOWS this is not his real birth certificate. I don’t know what happens now. This man is in power.

      Posted by thesophic | April 27, 2011, 5:04 pm
  25. Quite interesting, to say the least. I’m not an expert on graphic design, but I understand the concept of layering and think you might be right. You should send this to Trump…or someone of influence who will take it seriously. I’d be very interested to see where this leads.

    Posted by Rick | April 27, 2011, 4:11 pm
    • Something else to consider: since when is “African” a race? African is a nationality, negro is a race. Just as American is a nationality, and caucasian a race. Tripped up by political correctness?

      Posted by Rick | April 27, 2011, 4:24 pm
      • Since life began if Africa, aren’t all Americans African-Americans?

  26. Having used mechanical typewriters years ago before the advent of Selectric or computers, I can spot several type inconsistencies. Cap ‘M”s position and even ‘ears’ are inconsistent. Also find that some letters elevation vary referenced to either upper or lower ‘plane’ of type. As I see it, additional proof that layering is likely ‘true’, cut and pasted from several other documents that used different typewriters of the same make. However, an expert forensic investigator familiar with mechanical typewriters should be engaged here. Many a well used mechanical typewriter, develops a specific ‘signature’ composed of misaligned arms and stroke variations, rarely remedied throughout its life. Further. a real comparrison should be conducted using certs that were created both immediately before and after this certificate to eliminate false positives.

    • Do you think if this was a fake document the government would have hired someone AT LEAST as smart as you to create it? None of the things you are claiming indicate this is fake. And there are no “layers”. This shows a fundamental misunderstanding about how layers work in photoshop.

      Posted by barrelbear | April 27, 2011, 4:59 pm
      • PDF are not created in Photoshop. It was created using professional graphics software as a vector file – in Corel or Adobe Illustrator. Photoshop is a raster pixel program. I’ve been in graphics design for almost 15 years. There are 8 layers. You won’t see them in Photoshop.

    • girls born later, but have earlier certificate numbers

      Posted by Ronaldo | April 27, 2011, 6:05 pm
      • Notice the seal embedded in the birth certificate. There is no seal on the fake one Obama put out.

        Posted by Bill | April 27, 2011, 10:10 pm
      • Obama’s is missing the signatures at the bottom also
