The Birthers have maintained that Hawaii resident Johanna Ah’Nee’s long form birth certificate is the gold standard for genuine Hawaii birth certificates since WND published a highly redacted copy of her certificate in an article titled How does Obama’s document stack up against genuine BC?. Unfortunately for the Birthers the Ah’Nee long form has debunked several Birther claims and stands as solid evidence that the President’s LFBC that was released in April 2011 is the real thing.
Well the Ah’Nee certificate has come through once again. It has now been used to demonstrate that a Xerox WorkCentre produces the same scanning artifacts that the Birther “experts” used to base their claims that the Obama LFBC was a “computer generated forgery”.
Last week I had occasion to print a color copy of the Ah’Nee long form certificate and scan it to PDF on a Xerox WorkCentre model 7535. The Birthers will not be happy with the results. Many of the same “anomalies” appeared in the PDF scan of the Ah’Nee birth certificate including
- Multiple layers (six total)
- One JPG layer that included the background green security pattern and the form lines
- A monochrome layer with most of the text
- 4 other layers with bits of “junk”
- Text touching the form lines were included with the JPG layer
- White halos around text
- White holes in the background layer where text was lifted
Yes, all of the above features have been cited as proof of forgery by a trove of Birther “experts”. Yet, I have replicated every one of them using a low quality image of Johanna Ah”Nee’s birth certificate.
Will these self proclaimed experts dare repeat the same tests I have done? So far the silence is deafening. They know they have been revealed as charlatans. They ignore solid proof and cling to their biased analyses that have been debunked by evidence. They pretend “it is of no concern”.
I was not surprised by the results. I have scanned enough documents on Xerox WorkCentre’s to understand how the MRC compression algorithm works. It isn’t rocket science. I credit NBC and others for leading the way to find the facts. The mystery has been solved.
Here are the two main layers from the scan of the AH’Nee certificate.
JPG Background Layer (Note the white holes.)
I mentioned that halos are present in the image of the Ah’Nee birth certificate when scanned on a Xerox WorkCentre. He is a portion of the PDF that clearly shows the halos around the word “AH”NEE” and the other words that were lifted into the text layer during the compression process.
