I don’t need Donald Trump to tell me that Obama’s long form birth certificate is a forgery (although I do appreciate Trump’s saying it).
The image of Obama’s long-form birth certificate was reconstructed from layers of images—not just a simple scan or photograph of the document.
If you have something like Adobe Photoshop, you can work with layers to construct realistic new images. You can have, for instance, an image of a person, and an image of the White House. Using Photoshop, you can move the image of the person over the image of the White House. You then have an image of the person supposedly standing in front of the White House. The resultant picture would have two layers—the layer on top being the person, and the layer on the bottom being the White House.
I have done this type of thing many times for my kids who enjoy the fun.
Obama’s long-form birth certificate was put out by the White House in what is called a PDF file—something you can open and view with Adobe Acrobat, but which you can also view with Photoshop.
I have to admit, I did think it was strange that Obama’s long-form birth certificate was published on the background of Hawaii’s Certificate of Live Birth. I expected a simple black and white image, like the other long form birth certificates from Hawaii.
I never knew that a photo or image in a PDF file could have layers, so I decided to test Obama’s long-form birth certificate PDF.
I opened Obama’s long-form PDF in Adobe Acrobat 8 Professional, just as an experiment.
I right clicked over the PDF, and guess what-there were layers!
Since I’m no expert, I couldn’t extract all the layers. I could only get two of them, but that was enough for me.
Here are the layers I extracted—you can click on them to expand the images:
Now I agree with those that say Obama’s long-form PDF was built up as layers. It was not just a simple image.
Putting it on the green and white background that belonged to the certificate of live birth was just a way to hide any seams between the layers. Normally the certificate of live birth would be black and white.
All they needed to do was take a photo of Obama’s original long form birth certificate and show that to the public. Obviously, for some reason, they could not do that.
Just to show you what can be done, here is a copy of Obama’s long form PDF signed by me at the bottom – JOHN.
It is so easy, that, with the proper software your kids could do it, and join in the signing of Obama’s long form birth certificate!
What Obama’s forger(s) should have done would have been to flatten the layers into a single layer.
On photoshop all you have to do is check a box, and the image is “flattened” into a single layer. Then there would be no way to detect that Obama’s long form birth certificate was cobbled together from various images. Obama’s forgers could have done a better job.
Forgery is a serious felony and a forgery conviction can result in up to ten years in prison, heavy fines, and more.
Hopefully, this crime will not go unpunished.
Realistically, it’s not likely that the perpetrator will be brought to justice.
