Digital Artifacts Prove Obama Birth Certificate Altered

by Kurt Nimmo

As we originally noted and has been mentioned by a number of electronic image experts, one of the most glaring details demonstrating Obama’s purported birth certificate is a fraud is the presence of digital artifacts.

Digital images often contain unwanted information known as artifacts. In the blow up below of Obama’s supposed birth certificate, we can see digital artifacts as areas of white outlining text and graphical elements on the page. I brought a capture of the original PDF into Photoshop and enlarged it and increased the contrast in order to show the artifacts.

Artifacts are created as the result of lossy compression techniques. So-called “lossy” compression is a data encoding method which compresses data by discarding or losing some of it in order to reduce image file size.

Alternately, the white areas may be the result of a sloppy effort to eliminate a white background on the scanned image of the certificate and drop it over the green textured background. In Photoshop and similar image editing programs, it is possible to select areas based on color or contrast and eliminate those areas and make them transparent so a background image shows through. The process is far from perfect, especially when attempted by an inexperienced Photoshop user. It can leave behind telltale artifacts or jagged areas of original pixels, in this case white pixels from the original background.

As a long time user of Photoshop and Illustrator, I believe the second explanation is the likely reason there are white areas around the text and lines. It is a sloppy effort to eliminate a background.

As previously noted, the document is problematic in other ways. There are obvious text font inconsistencies, most notably in regard to the date in the “Date Accepted by Local Reg.” field near the bottom of the document. The number “1” in the year “1961” is darker than the rest of the date.

The letter “e” at the end of “none” in the “Type of Occupation Outside Home During Pregnancy” is also darker and slightly slanted, which is different than the same letter elsewhere in the document, indicating it was either added later with a typewriter of computer. This letter is included in one of the layers when the PDF is imported into Adobe Illustrator.

The date and state registrar stamps at the bottom of the document also break out in separate layers, indicating they were likely added and are not part of an original document as one would expect of an official document.

Other oddities add to the mystery of the document, including “X” marks above the “Twin” and “Triplet” in “This Birth” box. As far as we know, Obama is not a twin or triplet.

Finally, the document does not contain an official imprint seal, as we see on other certificate of live birth documents (see the example from an article we posted yesterday).

Although intended to be sarcastic commentary on the “birthers,” BuzzFeed has a list of most of the document’s anomalies.

Now that we have established that the document is an obvious forgery, we should ask why Obama’s people would release as definitive proof of his citizenship such an easily debunked fraud.

Is it possible Obama’s people are so incompetent and lazy as to release a document that was torn apart soon after it was released by people who know what to look for?

Or was this obvious fraud released simply to keep the debate and the political circus sideshow going?

    Hi Mountain, Yes, I remember a post I did with the words and a link that someday someone will produce for our culinary consumption the most perfectly altered birthcertificate, etc. Read it at the Obama File.

    This all so totally ticks me off.

    The Obama File! Woohoo!


    • Hi Liberty,
      That post looked kind of familiar. Might have read it before. The link to “” was dead.

      Well, it sure didn’t take long for Obama to turn the sheeple’s attention away from the birth certificate BS & have everybody focused on Osama’s timely demise. I wonder what this shell game is supposed to distract us from??

      Hope things are well with you.

    Obama made McCain eligibility an issue, let’s not forget. McCain made all of his documents available to Congress so they could determine whether or not he met the requirements.

    There’s no doubt this thing’s been manipulated to the nth degree. I was just over on Steve’s site, and I noted that no one seems to take note of the fact that a man who will pay millions to hide a document, will also pay handsomely to forge a document.

    After all the legal maneuvers and court battles to keep this hidden and suddenly he’s going to toss it out there? I find that suspect.

    Couple of things, the entire document has artifact evidence because it was cobbled together from a white background (prob COLB) to the Hawaiian safety paper design (houndstooth) background. Those with Adobe Illustrator can download the BC from, open in Illustrator, right click/ release all clipping masks (keep clicking untill all are released (this was a huge oversight by the document creator, to leave the document with the layers unmerged/unflattened is a rank amateur mistake. Now investigate the uncompressed jpgs and boxes that can be seen by turning on and off each layer, all of these are where the document has likely been altered. Way to many layers to be an OCR Bridge effect. Its a very poorly forged attempt. There is however a state seal on the safety paper tho, you can see this in Photoshop by opening the document in Photoshop any ver. and lower the curve in edit/curve by making the document darker and the seal appears. One thing that belies it as an absolute forgery is the number based on the Nordyke Twins (born days before obama, but obama’s number isnt shows earlier then theirs and there is obvious tampering with the type. This is so poorly constructed its really insinuates a Hoax, but Forgery of state documents should be and is a serious crime, that obama would submit this for public consumption is outrageous. Im sure the FBI will get straight on it.


    • Thanks for your expert analysis. With the vast experience our government has in forging documents, this is probably meant to be a diversion of sorts.

      We need to keep our eye on the ball, so to speak.

  9. If Mickey the Nose can produce perfect documents for criminals and foreigh agents I think the sophistocated US Teasury or CIA could produce document as well as Mickey the nose so it would leave me to believe a poor copy is real because he would not let something out that is so poorly done because that would allow suspicions continue. I think 2,3,4,7,8,11,13,15,20easliy explained. This is pure speculation on my part but the founders required birth in continental (geographic) US to prevent Alexander Hamilton from being president as he was born in Jamaica. Technically none of the founders and early presidents were born in the US because there was no US until the Articles of Confederation were ratified. They were all British subjects. As a matter of fact many would not be for independence if they could have representation in Parliament. Nor having such made then 2nd class British citizens.


    • They want the speculation to continue. I think it’s meant to distract the public from what’s really important; like possible war #4 with Syria, the continuing mega-disaster in Japan(back burner news now) or Obama’s current under the radar attack on our 2nd Amendment. And who knows what else they have up their sleeve?
