Safe Mode: On
Obama Birth Certificate was Faked In Adobe Illustrator (PROOF)

Go to the press release: http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2011/04/27/president-obamas-long-form-birth-certificate

Download the official birth certificate PDF here: http://whitehouse.gov/sites/default/files/rss_viewer/birth-certificate.pdf

Open the document in Adobe Illustrator.

In Adobe Illustrator, make sure in "Window" the "Layers" box is checked.

In the "Layers" box (bottom right by default) you can go through the countless separate layer pieces one by one. (You can do this because the document was created using Adobe Illustrator, and the person who created the final PDF left the Adobe Illustrator Layers and Editing capabilities box checked).

Un-check the eyeball on the left of each layer to hide individual pieces.

Zoom in and see how digital pieces were added on top of it with no anti-aliasing (that would have somewhat covered the trickery. It would have smoothed the edges out).

Notice that some pieces are scans of a real document. Others were added via a digital source. Either way, both are added to the document after scanning.

Scanned documents cannot have multiple layers. They are flat 1 layer documents.
There are programs that can vectorize text etc, but they do not create that many different layers, nor do they overlay pieces all over each other of different opacity and anti-aliasing attributes. Even if that was the case, they White House claims it was a "scanned" document and not edited.

This document is heavily edited, that is unquestionable. However one can only wonder why it was edited in such a poor and traceable manner. Was this task given to the most unskilled graphic designer on Obama's payroll, or was this done with the intent of destroying Obama's credibility?

Please pass this on, especially if you know a graphic designer. If they don't believe you, tell them to examine it for themselves. Then watch their mouth drop!

  • Yes, he's 100% correct in this video. I also do this for a living (work with Adobe software) and this proves that it's not a scanned document, it has been manufactured.

    • @klaus123 Wait, were talking about PDF documents, and you post a video about Pearl Harbor? That probably the most brainwashed response I can think of. I'm just surprised it wasn't a video of 9/11. Seriously, why are there so many brainwashed patriotic flag suckers? You let the media dictate your though process, you are the perfect sheeple.

    At the bottom of this certificate it says any alterations invalidate this certificate. If this is the case then surely it must also be the case for the birth certificate in this video. "any alterations invalidate this certificate" this means enhancing or editing or retouching it in any way. Therefore the certificate in this video is invalid.

  • Dumb! Anyone who has a birth certificate can open it in Adobe and "layer" it. You can try this same thing with your OWN fucking birth certificate and get the same results. I just want to know what the hell you WOULD do if he wasn't born in the US? He is already an elected official. You fucktards will just find anything to cry about and try to prove wrong. Anything opened in Photoshop as a 'layered' document can be altered and...well......LAYERED!!!

      Is that why the thing looks like it just rolled off of some printing press? After all those years you would think the paper would have aged some.

      I guess in Hawaii in 1961 instead of the hospital just chucking it into a plain old duo-tang binder in a filing cabinet they placed it into a quadruple lined polypropylene satchel and vacuum packed it.

      And what is with the curl at the top left hand corner? Did that happen before or after it was removed from the typewriter?

      Did I say typew More..

      Did hackers hack the white house and upload their own modified PDF? I don't think so stupid.

      Hospitals do not release original Birth Certificates...not even the presidents. Of course it's a scanned image, and ANY image uploaded into Adobe, or any other photo editing software could be divided into layers and modified.

    • @ShogunAssassin

      I don't really understand your point. Like I said before, ANY image can be modified and layered through Adobe or any other photo editing software. This is a null, and dumb, argument. The White House is not going to have an original copy. Those stay at the hospital. Seems you conspiracy theorists will always have one foot in front, and the other in your mouth. Learn the fucking software, and then come spew your stupidity.

  • The fella jumps to one wrong conclusion after another. Heavy duty document scanners grab the image, isolate the text, break it up into "regions" that need contrast/brightness, other regions to be left untouched, processes the image, dumps it into a PDF along with the security background ... pretty much identical to how you'd see it here. Pretty crude ... 90's technology ... but what do you expect from a government department?

  • The people who are discrediting this with the youtube link to the german guy are fools, yes adobe illustrator notices the different print and layers them but all that says is that the original document had loads of typos in it and had to be hard copy rectified and if that explanation is unnacceptable then the only other option is gthat it was rectified digitally after scanning. It can only be one of these options. Which one is it? I know my birth certificate hasn't got any original typos in it : More..

  • I would like to know what the White House has to say about this. It's their website, so they should be saying something before it get's out of hand. Just saying. It's been proven a fraud by many people now, using information directly from the governments website, so the document had to originate with the government, and I think they should be answering some questions about that discrepancy.

  • This brings me back to high school computer courses and messing with scanned documents,layers, the wierd stuff that would happen with a typed document that is exactly like what is appearing on this video. If you do this for a living how do you eat? This effect is something we learned in high school. This doesnt even pass the sniff test, when the layers are clicked to hide why are fields on the document that werent corrupted by hand written information also 'tampered' with? Most of those informa More..

    • @Flakester Again, the ignorance is astounding. Anything other than $49.99 consumer scanner will import via layers without a problem (assuming you check the SCAN TO LAYERS box). I have a 1099 tax form in front of me that I scanned. What arrived in Illustrator was a 9 layer image; the borders, text, background and various channel layers. This is a common occurrence and know to anyone with more than a general misguided understanding of Adobe image processing.

      That is your REAL explanation. If thi More..
