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!

Technical Analysis by John F. Sweeney March 21, 2010
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.
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.
