How to discover for yourself that Obama's 'Certificate of Live Birth' has been altered by cut and paste.
1. Download the document from Factcheck.org.
2. Open the document in Adobe Photoshop.
3. Go to the 'View' menu and select 'Rulers' to make them visible and the 'Windows' menu and make sure the Layers and 'Tools' windows are checked.
4. Click and drag a guideline from the left side ruler and move it to the right side border and line it up with the edge of the border. You will see that this lines up well with the border.
5. Drag out another guideline and line it up with the left border. You will see that the border drifts to the left going from top to bottom.
6. Zoom in on the bottom fourth of the left border.
7. You will notice that the crosshatch of the border tends to repeat at regular intervals.
8. Using the 'box' selection tool drag over one of the sections selecting a small box area.
9. Go to the 'Edit' menu and select 'Copy'.
10. Go to the 'Edit' menu again and this time select 'Paste'. This pastes the selected area directly above where you 'box' selected and places the copied area of pixels in a new layer just above. The image will not appear to have changed because the pixels in the new layer are identical to the ones below and in the same position.
11. In the 'Layers' window and above the new layer is an 'Opacity' setting. Change this setting from 100% to 50%. This will make it 50% transparent so you can see the pixels below.
12. In the 'Tools' window select the "Move' tool.
13. Using the arrow keys on your keyboard move the new layer up until you get to where it looks like it repeats. Move it around until you get a match. It will be immediately apparent when you get a match. You may need to move it a few pixels right or left in addition to moving it up.
14. Go back to the 'Layers' window and click on the 'Eyeball' icon which turns the layer from visible to invisible. Turn it on an off back and forth. If the image does not change at all then you know you have an exact match of the pixels above and below.
A scanner will read a document and assess every pixels hue and value one at a time. Therefore a scanned document will never have two identical areas of pixels that match. The only way a match can occur is by making an exact copy of a group of pixels and pasting them in a different location on the document. There is a shortcut for copying and pasting. If you hold the 'ALT' key down and use the move tool it automatically makes a duplicate and drops it where you let go of the mouse. If you hold the 'Ctrl' key down and hit the 'D" key this duplicates the previous function...in this case it was the cut and paste shortcut. If you drop the copied selection above but are off slightly by a few pixels right or left and then repeat hitting the 'Ctrl' 'D' shortcut the amount of pixels you were off is multiplied. This accounts for the drift of the border you noticed in the beginning when you used the guidelines. Apparently there was something on the left side that needed to be covered up and the 'Ctrl/D' (duplicate last function) was used multiple times and was off a few pixels creating the noticeable drift in the border.
There you have it, and you did it yourself. The statement on the bottom says "ANY ALTERATIONS INVALIDATE THIS CERTIFICATE" and now you know for a fact that this document is invalid. State: Nevada

PRODUCE THE DOG GONE BIRTH CERTIFICATE !!
- BY PASTOR MANNING (VIDEO)
Oh My Gosh.
I LOVE THAT PICTURE!! As a teenager of the 80’s (who was in love with Patrick Swayze) that movie represented every fear we had.
Oh that was FUNNY!
I am terrified by the judge that threw out the most recent case because it has been settled by “texting, twittering and blogging”. That’s our criteria of evidence now?
Are there going to be any criminals that need a trial as long as someone has put some evidence on a website? The attorney can say “Judge, there is no need to have a trial, my client has been proven innocent by texting, twittering and blogging. Here is the url.”
If you look up the thread, the complete quote is:
“Mr. Deputy Speaker, Sir, the President-elect, Mr. Obama, is a son of the soil of this country. Every other country in this continent is celebrating the Obama win. It is only proper and fitting that the country which he originates from should show the same excitement, pomp and colour.”
Just because we have said it was a photoshop doesn’t mean we have revealed all of what was photoshopped or how it was done.
My standing offer still remains untested by any Obama supporter.
Scan a blank birth certificate
Scan the same with the text typed in by laserjet
Scan the same with the text photoshopped in
post here in this forum
Reveal the actual picture size in bytes for each and then compare with Obama’s.....
You got that right!!!
So she found the name remarkable but didn’t bother to comment on a white woman having a black baby?
There was a white guy in my College Republican Club back when I was at Columbia who was born and raised in South Africa. He became a naturalized US citizen when he was in high school. He put "African American" down as his race in every single college application he filled out. If there was no "African American" box, he would check "other" and the write it in.
We all thought it was very funny. However, administrators at a couple schools that required interviews weren't amused.
There are no pixel perfect repeating patterns, and to make matters worse, if I understand the directions right, the author's only cutting out segments of the border without regard to the underlying background that shows through.
Try making a selection rectangle that includes a repeating background pattern to the left and to the right sides of the border. Coy and paste the selection, and good luck trying to match it to any other segment of border and background -- it cannot be done.
Ha! And the ‘doctor’ was too politically correct (in 1961) to mention it...but she wrote the name on a table napkin...(btw, that reminds me of the story of how Hubbard invented Scientology.)
Here are two clips of the border and background of a real 2006 COLB scan (it has the same border as the 2007 COLBs). These clips are identical in dimensions, memory size, and number of colors.
The first clip is from the upper left of the border:
The second clip is from the lower left of the border (color of clip #2 was changed to red for comparison purposes):
This is an overlay of the two clips (Clip #2 set to 50% transparency)
As you can see above, I moved the red clip #2 downwards until its pixels aligned with those of green clip #1. Notice that you get a really close match between the two on the hatched lines and on the small dots or rectangles.
You cannot make a comparison like this on the Factcheck COLB as its repetitive patterns were altered in the process of forging the image.
So, it's "no pixel match along border = no real COLB."
I'd also love to see this scenario play out:
You move to Hawaii and have to go down to the DMV to get a Hawaiian drivers license. When they ask to see your birth certificate as proof of identity and citizenship, you whip out your iPhone and show them a scan image of it.
"Sir, we need to see a paper copy of your birth certificate."
"But, why?" you ask in a puzzled tone, "Obama only had to show an image of his, so why can't I?"
"Sir, this image doesn't even have a Seal and a signature on it! We need to see a certified paper copy of your actual birth certificate."
So, you flip to the image which had edge detection applied to it and say, "See this?" pointing to the fuzzy outline of the Seal, "It's got a Seal and a date stamp, and if you look at my next image (which is a red enhanced copy) you can ever notice the signature."
"Sir, I'm going to have to ask you to leave.."
Oh, I fully intend to scan in a fake birth certificate for Dolly Parton at my license renewal. Then when ask for proof that I am Dolly Parton now, I am going to give the a photograph (ala factcheck.org) and say “here, see, I even had my original birth certificate changed”. I am now “Dolly Parton”.
