“I Created Obama’s Certification of Birth”

When the White House posted online an image of President Obama’s purported long-form birth certificate, it also linked to the previously circulated “Certification of Live Birth,” the short-form version that had been presented as the only birth documentation available.

However, the short-form certificate to which the White House linked April 27 was a forgery, claims research expert Ron Polland, Ph.D., who says he made the image himself.

“I made the birth certificate image that was given to the media at the White House press conference held on April 27, 2011,” Polland told WND.

“The White House said the black-and-white image is a copy of Obama’s 2007 [Certification of Live Birth], but it’s not. It is the forgery I created, and I can prove that is the case,” he declared.

Polland said he created the image to bolster his contention that the short-form Certification of Live Birth circulated by the Obama presidential campaign was a forgery.

“You have to be able to show how an electronic document was created in order to prove it is a forgery,” he explained. “I wanted to prove the [short-form certificate] was a forgery, and I wanted to show how it can be done.”

Then how did the White House end up presenting the forgery as authentic?

Polland contends that all of the short-form “versions in circulation on the Internet are forgeries.”

“Probably the White House just picked my forgery off Snopes.com, thinking it was the real thing,” he said.

Polland said he realized various Obama supporting groups, including Snopes.com, had posted his forgery as the authentic Obama document, but he decided to say nothing until he felt the time was right.

“I didn’t say anything until the White House published my forged Obama birth certificate as the real thing,” he said. “Then I decided it was time to speak up. Once the White House posted the forgery, I knew I could expose both the president and a supposedly independent, fact-checking website like Snopes.com as being caught promoting a fake document as the real thing.”

Polland walked WND through step-by-step documentation to show that the White House linked to his creation, not a document issued by the state of Hawaii.

The White House website documenting the April 27 press conference states:

In 2008, in response to media inquiries, the president’s campaign requested his birth certificate from the state of Hawaii. The state sent the campaign the president’s birth certificate, the same legal documentation provided to all Hawaiians as proof of birth in state, and the campaign immediately posted it on the Internet. That birth certificate can be seen here (PDF).

Happy Birthday (I Guess)

Joseph Farah, WND.com

How much don’t we know about Barack Obama as he nears the end of his third year of White House occupation?

Well, he claims today is his 50th birthday.

Yet, incredibly, it is still only an unsubstantiated claim – and, perhaps, more suspect than ever.

This was the year Obama finally yielded to pressure, largely from me, Jerome Corsi and a handful of other Americans, to release his so-called “long-form birth certificate” – the one he had been scrupulously hiding for so long.

Not many others in the media were ever interested in the story of Obama’s history, roots and questions about his constitutional eligibility. So, when he posted an image of this document last April on the White House website, the news industry fell all over itself proclaiming that all questions about his background had now been answered.

Nonsense.

The document Obama actually released raised more questions than it answered. Why? Because, as WND’s Corsi has proven to any objective party willing to look at the facts, that “birth certificate” is as phony as his debt-reduction plan – maybe worse.

In other words, Obama not only delayed and stonewalled and obfuscated over the release of his birth certificate for three years, he also eventually, under pressure, released a fraudulent one. That’s the most well-kept open secret in America today. It’s the topic no one – not Republicans, not Democrats, not media people, not officeholders, not even prominent tea-party activists – wants to talk about.

Yet every poll taken on the subject shows half the country doesn’t believe his story or his phony birth document.

Since I carried the ball on this issue when no one wanted to talk about it, I am actually stepping up my own activism on the eligibility issue through 2012.

The first stage comes in a renewed billboard campaign that you might want to characterize as my own personal birthday gift to Barack Obama. It was the “Where’s the birth certificate?” slogan, plastered on billboards all over America, that began to change public opinion in America regarding Obama’s eligibility. Now the new campaign asks, “Where’s the real birth certificate?”

Video: Trump Still Skeptical of Obama Birth Certificate

Jeff Poor, The Daily Caller

Now that he’s no longer interested in a run for the White House, at least for the time being, it would make sense for real estate mogul Donald Trump to drop the whole “birther controversy” subject, right?

But Trump isn’t. In an appearance on Wednesday’s “Piers Morgan Tonight” on CNN, Trump revisited the topic and refuted claims of racism. However, he added there are still some questions surrounding President Barack Obama’s birth certificate.

“The word racist has not been applied to me, I will tell you that,” Trump said. “But I was very proud of the job I did with respect to the birther issue, because I got Obama to do something which nobody else was able to get him to do. And there’s a real question as to why he took so long to do it. Maybe one of these days you’ll have to ask him why. And you have to check out that document very carefully.”
