Obama’s so-called long form birth certificate is clearly a fraud

I was not a Birther . . . until now.

Let’s see what happens when we subject Obama’s Certificate of Live Birth to the Adobe Illustrator Test. Hmmmm.

Is it really possible that this is a complete fraud? Is it really possible that the White House would be so foolish as to release a forgery, produced using Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator?

Hard to imagine the White House would be this stupid . . . to create such an obviously fake document.

So file this under “things that should make you go hmmmmmmmm.”

And here are some questions raised by Smoking Gun (a few minutes after the supposed Birth Certificate was posted on the White House website) . . .


• If the original document was in a bound volume (as reflected by the curvature of the left hand side of the certificate), how can the green patterned background of the document’s safety paper be so seamless?

• David A. Sinclair, the M.D. who purportedly signed the document, died nearly eight years ago at age 81. So he is conveniently unavailable to answer questions about Obama’s reported birth.

• In the “This Birth” box there are two mysterious Xs above “Twin” and “Triplet.” Is there a sibling or two unaccounted for?

• Finally, the “Signature of Local Registrar” in box 21 may be a desperate attempt at establishing the document’s Hawaiian authenticity. Note to forgers: it is spelled “Ukulele.”

Of course, anyone with a brain who just casually looks at this document without all the Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator software can instantly see this is a forgery.

This document we see on the White House website does not look old.  Where are the creases and wrinkles? Where are the frayed edges? Where is the discoloration, which always occurs when paper ages?

This document looks brand new. Not even a hint of wear and tear. No discoloration.

For example, here’s what my short form birth certificate looks like . . .

Ben’s Birth Certificate

As you can see, my birth certificate has a seal on it.

It looks tattered. It doesn’t look brand spanking new.

So you tell me which birth certificate looks more real to you — mine . . . or Obama’s.

Remember, the state of Hawaii told us a few days ago that this long form Obama Birth Certificate was in a vault — that not even Obama could get a hold of it.  Now, suddenly, here it is — PRESTO!

And it looks brand new — not like it’s been in a vault for decades. And where’s the seal?  No sign here of any seal.

Also, the textured background on Obama’s so-called Certificate of Live Birth looks like a modern design.  It doesn’t look anything like a design from that era.

It looks like it came from the Adobe library of backgrounds.  It looks like a background you can pull off the Internet.

Also, where the paper supposedly bends on the left side, the textured background doesn’t adjust to take into account the bend in the paper.

Take a piece of paper with print on it and bend it. See if it looks anything like this image.  The dark shading at the edge, where the paper is supposedly bent, is right out of Photoshop.  It’s a Photoshop (or Illustrator) effect.

What it comes down to is this: We really need to see the tattered original document. We then need to have forensic experts do an analysis of the paper and ink . . . because this is so obviously a fake.

In fact, this is such a poorly done fraud, it’s almost as if Obama wants to be caught — perhaps for the purpose of further humiliating the American people for being so foolish as to elect this clown.

It’s all part of the big joke he’s playing on America.


I am certainly not an expert in using graphics software (such as Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator), but I have some experience using these programs.  I used Photoshop to create the header on this site.  So I know something about how to use the software.

I was able to do exactly what you see in the above video using Photoshop.

I then wanted to see if I could achieve the same effect with a normal color scanned image.

I took a document of my own (with color), scanned it to a PDF, then executed the same copy and paste technique in Windows Paint and in Adobe Photoshop to see if I would get the same results with the layers (as you see in the video above).

I could not . . . because there are no layers that Photoshop can isolate in a scan of a real image as there is when an image has been assembled from multiple images (layers).

The mistake the forgers made here is they forgot to merge the layers to create a seamless single image to cover their tracks.

Had they taken this basic step, it would have been slightly more difficult to detect the forgery.  But even if they had taken this elementary step (merging the layers), there are still myriad tell-tell signs this is a forgery.


One of many things wrong with the document is that the race of Father is listed as “African”.

“Negro”was the official classification used by all U.S. federal and state government agencies in 1961 if you were of African decent.  Whoever Photoshopped this forgery (obviously a youngster) neglected to check the race classification language on other birth certificates of that era. “African” is not a race.  You can be Caucasian and be “African.”


JEROME CORSI RESPONDS in WND: Another problem for Obama is that birth certificates issued to twin girls born one day later at Kapi’olani hospital, the Nordykes.

The long-form birth certificates issued by Kapi’olani to the Nordyke twins have certificate numbers lower than the number given Obama, even though the president purportedly was born at the same hospital a day earlier than the Nordykes.

  • Note, Susan Nordyke, the first twin, was born at 2:12 p.m. Hawaii time Aug. 5, 1961, and was given certificate No. 151 – 61 – 10637, which was filed with the Hawaii registrar Aug. 11, 1961.
  • Gretchen Nordyke, the second twin, was born at 2:17 p.m. Hawaii time Aug. 5, 1961, and was given certificate No. 151 – 61 – 10638, which was also filed with the Hawaii registrar Aug. 11, 1961.
  • Yet, according to theCertification of Live Birthdisplayed by FactCheck.org during the 2008 presidential campaign – and now according to the long-form birth certificate the White House released today – Barack Obama was given a higher certificate number than the Nordykes.
  • Note, Obama was given certificate No. 151 – 1961 – 10641, even though he was born Aug. 4, 1961, the day before the Nordyke twins, and his birth was registered with the Hawaii Department of Health registrar three days earlier, Aug. 8, 1961.

In 1961, the birth certificate numbers were not assigned by the hospitals.

Instead, the numbers were stamped to the birth record by the Hawaii Department of Health at the main office in Honolulu.

This is the only place birth certificate numbers were assigned.

At the last step of the process, the documents were accepted by the registrar general, with the date of registration inserted in box No. 22 on the lower right hand corner of the long-form birth certificate.

The date the birth document was accepted by the registrar general was the date the birth certificate number was stamped on the birth record.

The birth certificate number was stamped on the form by a rubber stamp that automatically increased by one each time a birth certificate was stamped.

The question, therefore, is how was it possible that the Nordyke twins had their birth certificates accepted by the registrar general in Hawaii three days later than the registrar general accepted Obama’s birth certificate, when the twins’ numbers are lower than Obama’s number?

Here are the Nordyke twins birth certificates:

So what we need here is a forensic examination of the actual document — not this digital image we see on the White House website.

    I found a good birth certificate comparison…look up Nordyke Twins Birth Certificate and it becomes soooo much more obvious. I alos agree with the four days thing and the MD is the second witness David A Sinclair who died several years ago so he conveniently can not be questioned another thing to look into would be this post I came across on Citizen Wells……

    “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?””
    things that make ya go hmmmmm


    this is mind boggling this video shows the actual photoshop breakdown of the document!!!

  • avatar ookoshi:

    I hate to be the voice of reason here, but if you look at the full PDF published, this certificate was printed from microfiche and certified on 4/25/2011. Follow your own link to the original white house PDF and look at the bottom. It even has the date when it was issued and certified. When you take an old black and clear microfiche and print it on modern patterned paper, guess what, that’s what you get! No one claimed this was the original one handed to his parents back in 1961. This is a recently issued copy pulled from the state archives and printed on modern paper. The “bend” in the paper was in the original microfiche, so of course the lines don’t follow it, since the microfiche has the bend in the image, and when they print it onto patterned paper, the pattern isn’t going to match the image.

    When people jump to conclusions without really looking at the issue, they usually get to the conclusion they want to get to, instead of the truth.

    • avatar Morgan:

      @ookoshi: you make a valid point. Wearing my “attorney challenging authenticity of document” hat, I understand that something was produced here. Assuming the Nordyke certificates are valid, the available “copy” would show white ink on a black background (I have something similar from Los Angeles County), so somehow the fiche had to be re-reversed and then copied. So what we have is a copy of a copy. And a redacted copy at that.

      You see, you can’t simply say that this was “pulled from the state archives and printed on modern paper”. If it were that simple things like the lines in the original document would have been copied as well. Also note that there is language on the form attesting to it being a true and correct copy of the original; I can’t think of any reason that would have dropped off if the fiche had just been copied directly onto the modern form. Plus, there are two signatures on the Nordyke certs, and only one on this one. Why would the copy not show the original signatures?

      So however it was done and with whatever purpose, we still do not have the long form certificate as it rests in the Hawaii archives. I’ll leave aside for now the fact that somehow Obama’s aides got this copy generated only a week or so after Hawaii adamantly told us that nobody, not even Mr Obama, could access those records. Yet, here it (or something very much like it) is.

      I wish this would go away, now if for no other reason than that Obama is painting those who persist with questions as racist, that “birth certificate” is now some kind of code for “N******”. Obvious BS (though if I were to discover that some within the “birther” movement are in fact racist it wouldn’t surprise me, any more than it would surprise me to discover that some within the Democratic Party are in fact racist. They are out there), but it’s one more distraction we don’t need, one more way for Obama to play the “victim” card (how does he do it from inside the WH while building up a $1B war chest for 2012?) that we don’t need to have to spend time getting around.

      Obama is a miserable excuse for a President. His understanding of issues is limited: he has no clue at all as to what you do to get a start toward a balanced budget, his Mideast “policy” is infantile, his fealty to the unions is unparalleled, his orchestrated dismantling of our domestic oil industry all the while pledging to buy from Petrobras is beyond disingenuous. Let’s hammer on those issues and stop dissipating our energy on something that, at the end of the day, is a complete non-starter (even if true, there’s no realistic way it can ever go anywhere).

    • avatar SilverHairedSaint:

      Thanks for telling it like it is. All of the “issues” raised by Smoking Gun appear to have been created by someone who is smoking, but not a gun. Smudge marks, mysterious marks, paper lines (as you discussed) and name spelling are idiocy. Anyone who has ever rested their hand on wet ink while writing something else will have created smudge marks, anyone who has ever forgotten that there was a document under the paper they are writing on will have discovered that their writing may have transferred to the document below for many reasons. The writers also assume that the registrar’s name was that of a musical instrument, which is highly unlikely. If I could show you my signature, you would be hard pressed to understand what I wrote, but that doesn’t mean it is not my signature. It’s time to get off the Birther issue. If you people can’t get on with the real issues (school transcripts, etc…;->) and forget about the side track issues, you should stop writing. Get you heads out of your ***** and stop making our cause look like a bunch of loons. Talk about the important issues, like the deficit, gay marriage, abortion, obamacare…!!!

    His doc died..so, my delivering doc is dead too.

    His father is African, not negro. He is from Africa.

    The seal is a modern seal because it was requested recently. My birth certificate has a modern seal because I got a copy when I was applying for my drivers license.

    Your questions are dumb. FOCUS ON IMPORTANT THINGS LIKE THE ECONOMY< JOBS< HEALTHCARE. Drop the issue

  • avatar Kassie:

    Look people …rather than following all of the other lambs to the slaughter blindly just do it yourself…its easy…save the document directly from the whitehouse.gov websit and open it in Adobe Illustrator. It is painfully obvious that this document has been altered, I have done this myself. Anybody with a kindergarten education knows that if you alter a birth certificate of any form it is fraudulent and . Ask yourself why would they do this? and Betsy…No I do not believe he was fully vetted. and it is the first time it has ever been an issue because it is the first time that a president has spent millions of tax payer money to keep all of his files hidden from the American people.

  • avatar otbricki:

    Surely you must be joking. Not one of the points you raise is evidence of any sort of fraud or forgery.

    1. Green pattern. Look a little more closely at the top left corner. See, it’s curved.

    2. MD. So he passed away. Most MDs that would be working in 1961 would be over 90 now. How is that evidence of anything?

    3. X’s above box. Ever hear of carbon paper? All this is actually evidence that it is real. A forgery wouldn’t have real life details like this.

    4. Signature of local registrar. Hmmm. Look on the internet, there are images of other Hawaiian birth Certs signed by Mr. UKL Lee. He is a REAL PRERSON. OOOPS.

    5. Lack of seal. Scanners don’t produce images of embossed seals. A quick search in Google will pull up many examples of this.

    6. Father’s race. Father wasn’t available to determine race, the only thing known was location, in Africa.

    7. Nordyke twins – what does order of serial number assignment 4 days later have anything to do with it being a forgery? The registrar has a stack of papers and a stamp. Why does he need to sort the papers before stamping them?

    8. Layers – this has already been debunked elsewhere. Scanning software with OCR features does in fact create documents in layers.


  • avatar Morgan:

    Producing this document would, could and should have been a “win” for Obama, except that in doing so he once again demonstrated what a petulant, arrogant, condescending and thin-skinned man he is. If the matter is “silliness”, why does he appear at the press conference? If the hue and cry is all “sideshows and carnival barkers”, why does he respond to it at all? Here he showed exactly the same imperious attitude that he exhibited toward the father of 10 in Pennsylvania when he told him to go out and buy a hybrid van. And this is the real issue here: the more Obama shows himself in the spotlight the more of him people see and the less of him people like. So all kudos to Trump for putting Obama “on tilt” and getting into his head so well. Now let’s take advantage of what we know about Obama and the fact that he is back on his heels, and take on some real issues.

    I have read with interest and amusement the conspiracy theorists whose ideas are beyond moronic. For those who adhere to this incredible plot, this is a conspiracy of major proportions, which may be the equivalent of Area 51, the DaVinci Code, Rosemary’s Baby and The Manchurian Candidate. This plot, however, has spanned over five (5) decades and involved thousands of people.

    We may never know who fomented this plot, but the “handlers” of the Obama family and those involved are, no doubt, aliens and/or satanic in nature, since no one on Earth could perpetrate such a plot over such a time span, utilize the resources of the government and universities, thousands of people, and see into the past and the future.

    It all began with the future president’s parents being married in Maui, and then leaving Hawaii eight (8) months later so young Barack could be born in Kenya. This was obviously done for several reasons. First, he needed an African father whose own father, young Barack’s African grandfather, was a Mau-Mau anticolonial revolutionary, and second, simply to make the plot even more complicated allowing people like Donald Trump to force the production of the Long Form forged Birth Certificate. (More about Trump’s involvement later.)

    As Michael Smerconish points out in his article on the subject, “One can only wonder why the Obamas did not stay n Hawaii for a couple of months? Instead, having been born in Kenya for no purpose other than to complicate what would have been a rather straightforward plan to take over the world, the boy was quickly shuttled back to Hawaii, where the boy’s grandparents resided.”

    We also have to take into account that young Barack’s grandparents were obviously in on the plot, as they, no doubt, had to indoctrinate their daughter to marry an African and then a Muslim to raise the future president knowing full well she would die of cancer early in life before young Barack could start his public life.

    Now the plot thickens. The handlers were then able to have a bogus notice published announcing the birth of Barack Obama on Aug. 4, 1961 in the Honolulu Advertiser newspaper. All of this was accomplished while Barack and his parents were in Africa, which was no small feat.

    A paper trail of bogus “official” records, including several Birth Certificates and newspaper accounts, were necessary to the plot; and all of this was done with the cooperation of the Hawaiian officials and newspaper editors in Hawaii, while Barack’s birth was kept a secret from the world.

    Young Barack’s mother then had to divorce her African husband so she could marry a Muslim and take young Barack to Indonesia for his Madrassa training in Sharia law, or, as Mike Huckabee opined, maybe back to Kenya where the young Barack could be indoctrinated with anti-colonial and Black revolutionary theory. The plot is so complicated even the brilliant Huckabee can’t keep all the countries straight.

    This training would prepare him for his return to Hawaii and Kansas for his “American” schooling. Of course, all of this was kept quiet so young Barack could be trained to become president of the United States and complete the alien/satanic mission.

    One can only speculate how young Barack was able to fool the people at his Grade School, private High School, Columbia University and Harvard Law School, but since this plot is literally beyond our comprehension, clearly, the people at these schools were, and still are, in on the plot.

    This was not easy because, as Donald Trump has pointed out, no one actually knew young Barack when he was a child. Apparently, young Barack was attending school in America under a disguise, or being cloaked by an alien force field of some kind, so that no one would ever remember seeing him.

    This also required photographs of his childhood to be forged so as to make it look like he actually was a child at one time.

    After becoming the president of the Harvard Law Review and finishing with high honors, and passing the Bar Exam, young Barack moved back to Chicago to begin his public life, where he joined a revolutionary Black Christian Sect and “hung out” with terrorists, as the Republican presidential hopefuls have reiterated over and over to make the plot seem ridiculous.

    He eventually published two best best-selling books about his life and ancestry to throw everyone off about who he actually was, which is why, as everyone now knows, in “Dreams From My Father” he wrote this very mysterious sentence: “I discovered this article, folded away among my birth certificate and old vaccination forms, when I was in high school.” Clearly, this is a distinct effort to throw everyone off the trail, or onto the trail, depending on where the plot was going next.

    We now know that handlers of Barack, the Kenyan/Mau-Mau/Indonesian/Muslim/Hawaiian/Black Christian/Terrorist needed to become a politician, and so, Hawaii’s health director, Chiyome Fukino, a Republican appointed by Republican Gov. Linda Lingle, who is obviously part of the plot, and its state registrar, Alvin Onaka, whose name is similar to Obama and who is obviously a terrorist, were recruited.

    These people were able to testify that they personally verified the existence of the Birth Certificate and also stated that the Government of Hawaii, which may very well not be part of the United States, has the original Birth Certificate, but will not release it.

    Others were retained as part of the plot, including Jess Henig and Joseph Miller, who were placed at the Annenberg Public Policy Center at the University of Pennsylvania; in 2008, they were able to declare that they had “seen, touched, examined, and photographed the original birth certificate,” and state that it “meets all of the requirements from the State Department for proving U.S. citizenship.”

    Of course, politicians of every stripe had to be recruited so that Obama could get the nomination for president without anyone in the Democratic Party raising the issue of his birth and so that when he ran against the Republican nominee the issue of citizenship would not be raised.

    Since Donald Trump is also part of the plot, he was recruited to insure Obama’s re-election in 2012. Trump began his campaign in 2011 to have the president’s Birth Certificate released for the sole purpose of quelling the suspicions for the next election. Once the Birth Certificate was released, Trump withdrew as a Republican candidate for president to insure the Barack Hussein Obama could be re-elected to create the Muslim/Mau-Mau Caliphate.

    Just as Hitler came to power as the forerunner of the anti-Christ in the 1930s during the Great Depression, President George W. Bush and his minions were recruited to drive the American and World Economy into chaos just weeks before the election of 2008 so that Obama could be seen as a savior running on the message of Hope and Change.

    Everything fell into place perfectly allowing the new President to begin his revolution toward the Muslim/Mau-Mau/Black Christian/Secular/Socialist/Communist/Caliphate.

    For those who believe in great conspiracy, the End Times are here and Obama is the Anti-Christ.
