Obama’s “Certification of Live Birth” is a Forgery

The only birth document Obama has ever produced, through his proxy FactCheck, is a Certification Of Live Birth (COLB), which is also called a short-form. COLB is entirely different from the original or long-form birth certificate, which Obama has refused to make public. To see the differences, go to “Hawaii Quashes Citizen Inquires of Obama Birth.”

Now, a technical analysis of Obama’s COLB that FactCheck put on its website during the 2008 presidential campaign shows that even the COLB is a fake.

All we’ve had so far are two parties — a website called FactCheck and a Hawaii state official, Health Director Dr. Chiyome Fukino — claiming to have seen the hard copy of Obama’s Certification of Live Birth. Both are merely hearsay — not even certified by a notary public. Heck, if I sign a deed or give expert testimony in writing, which I have done, I must have my signature verified by a notary public. On top of that, notary publics are used to certify only documents of a NON-CONTESTED nature.

The only way to settle this is to have FactCheck or the Hawaii government produce the real thing — BOTH Obama’s Certification of Live Birth AND the long-form birth certificate — in court, so that impartial legal experts can examine the documents for their authenticity. But that is EXACTLY what Obama has refused to allow happen — and he’s spent a reported $2 million to prevent that. Why?

American Grand Jury asks that we flood the White House and the Justice Dept with phonecalls asking this simple question: Why is Obama fighting the release of ALL his past records, with lawyers paid with OUR tax dollars? Give them one demand: Obama, Release Your Records!

Obama’s Forged “Certification of Live Birth”: The Evidence

Technical Analysis by John F. Sweeney March 21, 2010

Obama’s Certification of Live Birth with “Artifact” points identified by analyst John F. Sweeney
…from all available information, background, verifiable data and facts, March 12, 2008 is the first verifiable history of the now infamous Obama internet COLB [Certification Of Live Birth, which is NOT the same as the long-form birth certificate – Eowyn]…. Specifically, the first documentable record of the COLB starts at the hour of 22:41:37 on March 12, 2008. This is the date and time stamp from the digital photo that is shown on the FactCheck website dedicated to Obama’s COLB.

Specifically, it is the photo named “birth_certificate_3.jpg.” FactCheck has removed the original embedded data, known as EXIF data, from its website, but an original version with the EXIF data can be found at the 24ahead.com website.

What is known about this photo named “birth_certificate_3.jpg”? As stated above, the date/time stamp digitally recorded when the photo was taken indicates the photo was taken March 12, 2008 and the time is recorded as 22:41:37 or 10:41 p.m. Other data available from the EXIF data indicates the camera used was a Canon PowerShot A570IS. It was in Auto mode with red-eye reduction mode on, the flash did not fire during the photo, the exposure time was 1/60th (relatively slow), and the F-stop (aperture) was 4.00.

While these values are shown in the EXIF data, we know they were automatically selected by the camera and not the photographer because we can also see the camera was set to full auto mode — simply point and shoot. The result was a slightly blurred, overexposed photo of printed, greenish-tint document.

In the photo, a document is being held up to a light source. The light source is behind the photographer since the shadow of his arm is over the document. The light source is also the predominant lighting since the background is dark and the overhead office lights are off in the background. Analysis of the background finds: a) the overhead office lights off, and b) no natural light coming in from the large windows that can be seen. The conclusion is that that photo was taken at night. Was it at 10:41 p.m.? There is nothing in the photo to contradict that digitally-captured time.

What else can be found in the background of the photo? The carpet of the room where the photo was taken is clearly visible in the bottom of the photo. It has a distinct pattern. There is a person sitting to the right side of the photo. They are sitting at a desk or cube that has a short wall divider. The furniture appears to be red or orange (difficult to tell exactly, since it is dark in the room background). But the make and model of the furniture appears consistent with Steelcase Criterion Plus. There is a model of that chair which comes in orange fabric. The area is a large office open landscape area. Large exterior windows can be seen in the background of the photo. Lights from other office buildings can be seen through the windows.

Photos of the Obama Chicago campaign headquarters show an open landscape office environment, with short wall dividers, with Steelcase Orange chairs and with the same distinctive carpet. The background in the photo matches the well-photographed Obama Chicago campaign headquarters. The matches are perfect: same carpet, same office furniture, same office. It is clear that “birth_certificate_3.jpg” from the FactCheck site was taken at the Obama Chicago campaign headquarters. It was also most certainly taken at night. Everything observable in the photo matches the EXIF data. Was it taken March 12, 2008? Available evidence indicates this is the case. The publishers of FactCheck say no, the time was incorrectly set after a battery failure. But with that explanation, they would have to be the most inept and careless reporters in the world. Also, I have owned several makes of Canon cameras, and I have yet to have a factory-provided battery fail.

Mr. Sweeney believes this photo was taken at Obama campaign headquarters in Chicago on March 12, 2008, two days before the last passport breach at the State Department
What else is in, or more importantly, not in this photo? There is absolutely no evidence of a raised seal in the lower right portion of the document where the supposed scans and other supposed photos show the raised, 3-D seal from the Department of Health machine. The seal should be located in the area that has the shadow of the arm. But it is not there. It is not visible to the naked eye; there is not a sign of it under any zooming of the original photo; no digital manipulation tools find any evidence of a raised seal in this picture. With 100% certainty, the raised seal is not there. So this is merely a picture of a printout. It is definitely not an official COLB from Hawaii.

Here is the summary of FactCheck’s “birth_certificate_3.jpg.” The digitally-encoded stamp indicates the photo was taken March 12, 2008 at 10:41 p.m. The photo was definitely taken at Obama Chicago headquarters and it was taken at night. The photo is not that of an official Hawaiian issue COLB due to the lack of a raised seal.

  1. I’m confused….I went to the factcheck website via the link in this article and read the page. Factcheck is saying the certificate of live birth is genuine, or am I reading it wrong?

    This is copied from the Factcheck website—-

    In June, the Obama campaign released a digitally scanned image of his birth certificate to quell speculative charges that he might not be a natural-born citizen. But the image prompted more blog-based skepticism about the document’s authenticity. And recently, author Jerome Corsi, whose book attacks Obama, said in a TV interview that the birth certificate the campaign has is “fake.”

    We beg to differ. FactCheck.org staffers have now seen, touched, examined and photographed the original birth certificate. We conclude that it meets all of the requirements from the State Department for proving U.S. citizenship. Claims that the document lacks a raised seal or a signature are false. We have posted high-resolution photographs of the document as “supporting documents” to this article. Our conclusion: Obama was born in the U.S.A. just as he has always said.

    Update, Nov. 1: The director of Hawaii’s Department of Health confirmed Oct. 31 that Obama was born in Honolulu.”


    • BobA,

      Well, has FactCheck shown a better image of the Certification of Live Birth on its website, or are they asking us to take their word for it?

      What we have are two parties — FactCheck and a Hawaii state official — who claim to have seen the hard copy Certification of Live Birth and claim it is authentic. It’s hearsay — and it isn’t even testimony certified by a notary public. Heck, if I sign a deed or give expert testimony in writing (not in person), which I have done, I must have my signature verified by a notary public. And yet, FactCheck expect us to just believe their word?

      The only way to settle this is to have FactCheck or the Hawaii govt produce the real thing — BOTH the Certification of Live Birth AND the long-form birth certificate — in court, so that impartial legal experts can examine the documents for their authenticity. But that is EXACTLY what Obama has refused to allow happen — and he’s spent a reported $2 million to prevent that.



      • The answer is obvious–it is NOT real!!!!These fools have used Alinsky’s rules to ridicule anyone who question this by calling them “birthers”. I have been silent on the issue for fear of being called a fanatic, but NO MORE. Our family has no idea where this fool was born, but it was NOT Hawaii or not to these 2 parents.


      • Eowyn,

        I don’t believe the birth certificate is real. I went to a site months ago that proved it was a forgery, I have not been able to find it again. I did go to Urbanlegends and they also say the COLB is real. In the comments on the Urbanlegends story there are many people who say their story is BS also. One commentor claims to have been born within a month of Obama and says the Kenyan Birth Certificate that has surfaced is identical to his. He also claimed that there were pictures showing Obama and his parents in Kenya at the time he was born. He finshed his comment with a note that Obama went to Kenya shortly after this information came to light insinuating he was going there to destroy the proofs.
        I am not sure what to believe about the information, I am SURE that Obama is NOT eligible to be the President! If the birth certificate itself is disregarded, He is still a dual citizen, his father being a British subject, prevents him from being eligible according to the Constitution.


        • BobA,

          In the last analysis, any number of people can say whatever they want — be it FactCheck, that Hawaii official, a blog or a reader posting a comment. But how we do things here in the United States about CONTESTED documents is that we duel it out in a Court of Law, with certified legal experts.

          Just think: You and I and all in the United States must find a notary public for ordinary uncontested documents, like a house deed, but with the birth certificate of the President of the United States, we’ll just take a web image of his Certification of Live Birth (which is not even his original long-form birth certificate)! Yup, that’s good enough! — NOT!


  2. You know you can go to hell just as fast for lying as for stealing? The COLB has the raised seal of the state of Hawai’i and is signed by the Health Department representative. There has not been 2 million dollars spent defending the frivolous law suits. Google it. Try to stay up to date.


    • Kindly go google yourself, Lawrence.
      And while you’re at it, do insert your fictitious @bigfoot.com e-mail address where the sun don’t shine. Ciao!


    • Not to be a Devil’s Advocate… Literally… but Lawrence is partially right!! “You can go to Hell just as fast for Lying as for Stealing”… This is definitely true!! His third statement “There has not been 2 million spent defending frivolous law suits”… This is also true… but only because the law suits have genuine merit and weren’t frivolous at all… regardless of the judges decisions (that were probably bought off)!!


  3. Lawrence, I hear your mommy calling.

    The milk she poured to go with your cookies is getting warm.

    Now, stop googling yourself, run on up those basement stairs before it’s too late, and the milk spoils, thus you wind up in the hospital with an ailment that the commie-care goons refuse to treat due to your own slothfulness.

    Piles of huck, comrade.
