So, is it just me or would you have to have never seen anything produced by a typewriter to interpret those 'variations' as anything other then different degrees of ink saturation?

These people are the typeface equivalent of the "engineers" who think 9/11 was a controlled demolition.

For this "expert" to judge anything he would have to have access to the original document and not a scanned copy of it. Given his political leanings, I truly doubt anyone would trust his "unbiased" opinion enough to let him analyze the typeface on Obama's turds. Let alone an official document.

As someone old enough to have used those blasted typewriters, I say it'd be impossible to make any two letters look exactly identical. You had letters on the end of a stalk that struck down against a ribbon with various amount of force, the ribbon's ink was never even, and the paper would even move about slightly as it was being hammered by the keys.

Why doesn't Blastingcap Hubbabubba Fartblimpo just address this issue, resign the presidency, and appoint Sarah Palin as Princess America? That's all he has to do to clear up this blatant forgery by a pair of clairvoyant parents who somehow knew during the Jim Crow 60s that their mulatto child would run for president 46 years after he was born.

Why is he ignoring this issue? I'm very concerned.

TFA: $4.95 today! Get the inside details on what could be the most serious constitutional crisis in the nation's history, in "Where's the Birth Certificate? The Case That Barack Obama is Not Eligible to be President," autographed by Jerome Corsi.

Wingnut Daily is pimping autographed copies of Corsi's book for $4.95? That is farking hilarious. I feel a little bad that we ground up some trees so that he could print his rantings but the fact that he can't even give away autographed copies makes me smile until my face hurts.

Who pays to print these crap books anyway? You'd think they'd eventually run out of cash to pour down that well.

forget that the ribbon might have crap (bits of paper and crud) on it from having been reversed and used multiple times? (does ANYONE else remember doing this?)

that being said, the capital "A"s having different angles is a different story ..

CLEARLY this guy is a democratic PLANT to cause problems for the Teahadists and GOPtards so that they will lose the election to king obama the 3rd

My favorite responses from the site:

"Jail would be a welcome treat for this thug. As a Texan, we have something called CAPITAL PUNISHMENT. And something as heinous as High Treason and Defrauding the American Public should definitely qualify for exercising capital punishment."

"There is REAL hope for you yet, America. If we succeed in proving Obama's ineligibility, we can turn this thing around. Let's get everybody involved people: (1) Fax/email/write/call your Congressmen and elected officials to have them listen to/read these new revelations into Obama's ineligibility; (2) Call into local talkshows and radioshows and share this information; (3) Post this information on any social networking board you are a member of; (4) Email this information to your circle of friends and discuss them and formulate other strategies to have it exposed on a broader, more public forum; (5) Support the investigative work of Farah, Corsi, Philip Berg, Orly Taitz, and others who have put their names and careers on the line for the sake of getting to the truth about Soetoro/Obama/Bounell; (6) Call mainstream media outlets or write editorials to major newspapers to demand they cover this information and have Farah or Corsi be the main interviewees; (7) Pray, Pray, Pray for this Nation to be healed of the atrocity known as Barack Hussein Obama II aka Barack Dunham aka Barry Dunham aka Barry Soetoro aka Harrison J. Bounell. And most importantly, (8) NEVER GIVE UP."

"Now is the time for every American citizen to write their Congressmen/women. Make them aware of the facts. Give them links. Point out that a judge has given Orly Taitz subpoena power. She is now able to present 'discovery', and boy howdy, does she have DISCOVERY TO PRESENT. Then ask if their name might be on Orly's list as a possibly complicit partner in this cover-up. That is what I have done with my democratic senator, DeFazio. I want him to lose sleep over this. I am sure all of Congress knows Obama is a fraud, and we need to let them know that we know, and that they are going to be put under oath and questioned, most likely. Obama has lost 3 in his cabinet in just the past week. Let's make it a real EXODUS of this administration out of WA, DC."

"I too have been in typography, graphic arts and design since 1985 and this is the first conclusive example from another researcher that I have seen. I concluded the same myself last month but based on other evidence. However, this is more easily demonstrable. This president is toast."



I have to stop reading the derp now. My headache is starting to come back.

I knew Oily Taint would find someone crazy enough to try and get her back into the headlines. Even Oily has given up the "He wasn't born in Hawaii" argument, and is now pushing the argument that since BOTH of his parents weren't US citizens, he's ineligible to be president.

I understand that this a very profitable business for some people. Almost everytime I made the mistake of clicking on WND-link I found an article that was just a purely disguised advertisement for their latest book about contrails, creationism, bible-codes or some other idiocy of the month. I am not sure, but I think some of the same methods that are employed by scientology are used to put these books in the bestseller lists. Whatever convoluted business model they actually use somebody must be making money of this or they would not keep doing it.

I am just curious how many of these 'books' actually end up being read by the people that buy them and how many just end up on bookshelves declaring patriotism like some bumper sticker.

I once found a GREAT website which showed the changes over time for citizenship in the US.
cant find it again, so we get wikipedia, which still works

Title 8 U.S.C. § 1409 paragraph (c) provides that children born abroad after December 24, 1952 to unmarried American mothers are U.S. citizens, as long as the mother has lived in the U.S. for a continuous period of at least one year at any time prior to the birth.


Link (new window)

so obama's mother was an american, who had lived in the US for more than 1 continuous year of her life, therefore obama is a us citizen no matter where he was born or lived.

strange how LAWS confuse tards

actualhuman: So, is it just me or would you have to have never seen anything produced by a typewriter to interpret those 'variations' as anything other then different degrees of ink saturation?


There's that and there's also the fact that some of variations can be attributed to the human factor.

Ie: Put in the known quantities (like the hospital he was born in) first, and keep a blank spot for the name until it's actually chosen.

Christ, it took my mother two months to decide on a name for me. It's not like any sort of waiting document would just be left blank in case she wanted to decide I was born in a different hospital, too.

LIES!!! everyone KNOWS that a blackman can NEVER be president!!
 
2011-06-12 06:36:23 PM
better yet, if obama's being born overseas excluded him from being a "natural born" citizen but still be a us citizen (which is even more batshiat, but go with me), then mccain's being born in panama excludes him from being a "natural born" citizen also.

therefore, neither men were eligble for election, bwhahahahahahahaha

/god I love birfer tards
 
2011-06-12 06:38:01 PM
can we go further back? presidents which were born at home have NO proof that they were actually born in the US. so none of them were legal

bwhahahahahahahah

must be really confusing to some people, this thing called logic.
 
2011-06-12 06:38:37 PM
"Typewriters in 1961 could not change the size and shape of a letter on the fly like that," he said. "This document is definitely a forgery."

Hmm, when I read that I expect something like Helvetica and Times New Roman inexplicably mixed together. Call me crazy, but I would think you're talking about actual different typefaces, not letters that look almost the same but for them being inked and smudged a little different from being typed on a farking 1960 typewriter and then scanned into a digital document. I know, I'm weird.

2011-06-12 06:48:57 PM
It is not the original document. It was scanned and digitally recreated. Hence, the layers. That probably also explains the irregularities with the typeface. Is the information accurate. No way to know from this scan. We just have to trust that it is accurate.

Yeah, as soon as the birth certificate was released, she said something along the lines of it being a "positive first step" but that he was still ineligible due to the fact that his father wasn't a US citizen. She believes that "natural born citizen", legally, means that you were not only born in the US, but both of your parents were as well.

I have to wonder if we've had any other presidents who had at least one immigrant parent.

He disproves his own theory by presenting 22 different versions of the letter 'a'. He would have us believe that the document was typed on 22 different typewriters, or was cut and pasted from documents created on 22 different typewriters?
