White House links to deliberate forgery from Snopes.com, thinking it was real

When the White House posted online an image of President Obama’s purported long-form birth certificate, it also linked to the previously circulated “Certification of Live Birth,” the short-form version that had been presented as the only birth documentation available.

However, the short-form certificate to which the White House linked April 27 was a forgery, claims research expert Ron Polland, Ph.D., who says he made the image himself.

“I made the birth certificate image that was given to the media at the White House press conference held on April 27, 2011,” Polland told WND.

“The White House said the black-and-white image is a copy of Obama’s 2007 [Certification of Live Birth], but it’s not. It is the forgery I created, and I can prove that is the case,” he declared.

Polland said he created the image to bolster his contention that the short-form Certification of Live Birth circulated by the Obama presidential campaign was a forgery.

“You have to be able to show how an electronic document was created in order to prove it is a forgery,” he explained. “I wanted to prove the [short-form certificate] was a forgery, and I wanted to show how it can be done.

Then how did the White House end up presenting the forgery as authentic?

Polland contends that all of the short-form “versions in circulation on the Internet are forgeries.”

“Probably the White House just picked my forgery off Snopes.com, thinking it was the real thing,
” he said.

Polland said he realized various Obama supporting groups, including Snopes.com, had posted his forgery as the authentic Obama document, but he decided to say nothing until he felt the time was right.

“I didn’t say anything until the White House published my forged Obama birth certificate as the real thing,” he said. “Then I decided it was time to speak up. Once the White House posted the forgery, I knew I could expose both the president and a supposedly independent, fact-checking website like Snopes.com as being caught promoting a fake document as the real thing.”

Polland walked WND through step-by-step documentation to show that the White House linked to his creation, not a document issued by the state of Hawaii.

The White House website documenting the April 27 press conference states:

In 2008, in response to media inquiries, the president’s campaign requested his birth certificate from the state of Hawaii. The state sent the campaign the president’s birth certificate, the same legal documentation provided to all Hawaiians as proof of birth in state, and the campaign immediately posted it on the Internet. That birth certificate can be seen here.(PDF).

Clicking that link, as seen in Exhibit 1, leads to a black and white image on the White House website:

A close-up of the bottom of the page shows that the document was taken not from a White House or Hawaii Department of Health Web page, but from Snopes.com:

Snopes.com, in an June 2008 article, posted the Obama short-form certificate after it had been first published by DailyKos.com June 12, 2008, and by the Obama campaign website FightTheSmears.com.

When Snopes.com posted Polland’s fake document, he took a screen shot of the Snopes.com website, showing that the linkto the Obama document was the URL at which Polland had posted his forgery.

Independent confirmation is readily available on the Internet that Snopes.com had linked to the forged Polland birth certificate.

It can be seen, for instance, in the following comment a reader postedon Salon.com, a strongly partisan pro-Obama website, on Nov. 3, 2008.

As seen in Exhibit 5, the reader shows that the article posted on Snopes.com, attempting to prove the authenticity of the Obama short-term birth certificate, was linked to Polland’s forgery:

Exhibit 7
shows that as recently as April 7, only 20 days before the White House press conference releasing Obama’s long-form birth certificate, a reader on HuffingtonPost.com was unknowingly urging others to send Polland’s fake certificate to Donald Trump as evidence Obama had been born in Hawaii.

The Snopes.com link to the Polland fake document was still in place at the time of the April 27 White House press conference, as demonstrated by a reference to Polland’s Photobucket website. At Polland’s site, the hits to his fake document peaked April 27, as seen in Exhibit 8.

“If Obama has his Certification of Live Birth and his 2008 presidential campaign had actually scanned it and posted it on their website FightTheSmears.com, then why did the White House distribute on April 27 a fake copy … that the White House never had and never made?” Polland asked. “Instead, the White House distributed a fake [short-term certificate] image that I had and I made.”

Polland takes this as proof that the document the campaign released in 2008 was a forgery.

“Because what Obama calls his birth certificate is a fabricated Photoshop forgery, and I proved it by duplicating one from scatch, in real-time, in the only way it could have been created,”
he said. “No scanner in the universe created the [document] Obama claimed was his.”

As seen in Exhibit 9, Snopes.com has replaced the Polland fake document with a new green-background image that no longer matches the one posted on the White House website with the Snopes.com URL.

Polland, a frequent Internet poster under the username “Polarik,” has published a series of videos on YouTube summarizing his three-year investigation seeking to prove the Obama short-term birth certificate was a forgery.

Polland’s expertise is in computer graphics and the use of computer peripherals, such as printers and scanners to input digital images.

He earned a Ph.D. in Instructional Systems from Florida State University in 1978 and a masters degree in Educational Research and Psychology from Florida State in 1972.

Polland has just published an e-book entitled “Alias Barack Obama: The Greatest Identity Fraud in History.”

Birth Certificate: Pixels Don’t Lie

Birth Certificate: Pixels Don’t Lie

April 28, 2011
Bottom Pic.jpgA scanner will not pixelate what it picks up at different scale

A very simple review of Barack Obama’s long form birth certificate, which was released on the whitehouse.gov website on 04/27/2011, indicates that the document was altered. Anyone can review this finding, and I urge them to do so.

Simply go to http://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/default/files/rss_viewer/birth-certificate-long-form.pdf and open the purported birth certificate. If your browser opens the document and not a pdf viewer, I suggest you save the document on your computer, browse to the location of the document, right-click on the document, selecting “Open with” and open it with a pdf viewer. A free copy of a pdf viewer can be downloaded at http://www.adobe.com.

There are a great many places to view the anomaly that I’m about to show you on the document. I chose to look at the letter “D” in the signature of Ann Dunham Obama. Using the tools in your PDF viewer, zoom in on the letter “D” as close as you can – just before the pixels in the letter “D” become illegible and blurred. Now, observe the size of the pixels in the letter “D”. Compare the size of the pixels in the letter “D” to the size of the pixels in the background of the document. They seem to be the same size, correct?
—————————————————————————————————————–

Now, look at the pixels in the text “Signature of Parent or Other Informant” – just above the letter “D” as well as the letters in the remaining portion of the signed word “Dunham” – in this case look at the pixels in “unham” (Dunham less the “D”). Those appear to be the same size too, correct? Now ask yourself this. Why doesn’t the size of the pixels in those words match the pixels in the letter “D” and the background text? You should be aware that scanners do not randomly generate various size pixels on a document. A scanned document will show all the text in the same layer, with the same pixel size. This document is purported to be scanned in, yet the varying size of the pixels seem to tell a different story. As you review other sections of this document, you’ll find this inconsistency repeats itself many times over. In fact, it’s easier to find text that doesn’t match the original than does.

How did this occur then? I believe an original birth certificate document was scanned to an electronic file. I believe the file was then opened in software such as Adobe Photoshop, or one of numerous other editing applications. Text in the original document was selectively removed and replaced new text. Once the alterations were complete, the document was converted to a pdf document directly from the editing software, creating and locking in two separate pixel sizes.

As you’ll see below, I’ve chosen only two pixels of each size to compare the two different sizes. As you’ll see, by looking around the document, this is not an anomaly restricted to the four pixels that I’ve selected. This discrepancy exists all over the document. You be the judge, but please don’t be fooled by this document. This birth certificate has clearly been altered.
