Obama’s Unbelievable Birth Announcements

Why Obama’s Newspaper Birth Announcements can’t be believed

reference: http://www.americanthinker.com/2012/10/are_obamas_1961_newspaper_birth_announcements_fake.html   by Shawn Glasco

DATE:  JUNE 9, 2008  Jim Geraghty of the Nation Review asks (in response to the rumor that Obama’s second middle name was  Muhammed) why doesn’t Obama’s camp just  “release a copy of his birth certificate”?

The Obama-supporting website Politifact (like Snopes) could find no publicly available image of a copy of Obama’s birth certificate  though they search for one.  They stated that Obama’s “campaign would not release it and the state of Hawaii does not make such  records public.”  (Note:  you can’t release what you ain’t got.)

DATE: JUNE 12, 2008: Just three days after the question of why the birth certificate hadn’t been released, one mysteriously is posted  on the Daily Kos website with no fan-fare or explanation. *  Why?  Undoubtably because of the political positions of its owner and  founder, Markos Moulitsas, who authored “Taking On the System: Rules for Radical Change in a Digital Era“, -inspired by the Saul  Alinsky socialist bible: “Rules for Radical” which was the far-Left’s guidebook for forcing change on society by every underhanded  tactic conceivable, especially ridicule and mockery.  Hillary Clinton was a huge fan and devoted her dissertation to him and his thoughts and methods (which inspired her Progressive passion).  Alinsky dedicated the book to the first radical in history; SATAN.

[* Three days?  Wow!  How did they get Hawaii to issue one so fast?  And mail it as well?  Or did they?]

The birth certificate that appear with the words; “[h]ere is Obama’s birth certificate” was the never seen before short form  Certification of Live Birth form from Hawaii.  He added: “the latest batch of crazy internet rumors” are now “debunked.”

DATE:  JUNE 12TH 2008 (the same day) Politifact also received an e-mail containing the jpg image of the same short-from birth  certification said to be from the previously unhelpful Obama campaign.  That was to be the end of the Muhammed rumors.

DATE: about JULY 23, 2008; an image is posted on the internet of the August 13, 1961 “Honolulu SUNDAY Advertiser” with a listing of birth announcements including Obama’s.  It seems to have been posted by Lori Starfelt on a TexasDarlin blog.  Malcolm X was  one of her heros.  She authored “More Americans Killed By Right Wing Terrorists In The 90s Than Foreign Terrorists.”

Starfelt’s Claim #1. She received her copy from an unnamed research librarian at the Hawaii State Library.
Starfelt’s Claim #2. She “talked” to the Department of Vital Records and the Honolulu Advertiser
Starfelt’s Claim #3.  She was informed that in 1961 new Vital Records would be posted at the end of the week on a sheet which the                newspaper would pick up for routine Sunday publication.

Starfelt Calculated:  having been born early Friday evening, Obama’s hospital record would not have been completed, sent to the  Vital Statistics Office, added to the list of births and been posted for pickup until the next Friday.  That explains its publication on  the next Sunday (August 13 edition of the weekend paper).

Starfelts Lie or Error:  Blogger “Ladyforest” compiled a 10-day sampling of birth lists from the daily papers and it turns out they  were printed almost everyday.

Question:  Did Starfelt deliberately lie or was she lied to?  Or was it a mistake of ignorance of detail by respondents inside the Vital Records Office or the newspaper? (if that’s even possible)

HUGE Question:  Why was the appearance of the announcement of the Nordyke twins not in that Sunday edition as well since they  were born the next day (Saturday August 5th) and the records for them and Obama would not have left the hospital separately since  their births were supposedly so close together?  (Note: Mrs. Nordyke has no recollection of Ann Dunham nor her mix-race baby and  she is a loyal Obama supporter)

COINCIDENCE:  Starfelt died three years later and her memorial service was held in May 2011 at The Unitarian Universalist Church  in Studio City, California.  Obama’s grandparents, Madeline and Stanley Dunham, were members of The Unitarian Universalist  Church in Seattle and Hawaii.  Madeline Dunham’s memorial service was also held (in 2008) at The Unitarian Universalist Church (in  Hawaii).

A SECOND COPY APPEARS:  July 2008 another blogger (Infidel Granny) posts the same newspaper birth announcement image of  the Dunham birth.  She states she received it in an e-mail also from a nameless research librarian in the State Library.  http://butterdezillion.files.wordpress.com/2011/03/the-online-birth-announcement-claims.pdf

A Honolulu resident posts an image of the August 14, 1961 Honolulu Star-Bulletin birth announcement which includes Obama’s  birth, conveying that she found it herself in the Hawaii State Library.
It’s significant revelation: the order of the first 25 births perfectly matched that of the Honolulu Advertiser.

QUESTION: Was that normal?
CONFIRMED:  Hawaii Health Department spokeswoman Janice Okubo states that both newspapers received their vital statistics  from the Health Department which obtained their birth reports directly from Hawaiian hospitals.  The lists would naturally be the same.

CONFIRMATION DISCREDITED:  A comparison of births between the two newspapers covering ten days in August 1961 reveals  enormous dissimilarities to each other.  Had the released images been doctored?   Was the newspaper, descendant of the two original papers which were closely associated, shared the same building for 50 years, and then merged into one newspaper, lying or speaking confidently but ignorantly?
So either the newspaper (or the Hawaii Department of Health) was dishonest and untruthful or was incompetent and incorrect.  That is made manifestly clear by the fact that the editions of the papers surrounding the days in which Obama’s birth is shown are an  inexplicable jumble of disjointed irrational orders of appearance, -beyond making any sense at all, -as if deliberately done to cover-up   some manipulation that would be recognizable if the orders were seen in their normal identical order in both papers.  The odds  calculated to allow for such an order of disorder are four quadrillion to one.   http://www.americanthinker.com/2012/10/are_obamas_1961_newspaper_birth_announcements_fake.html

UNANSWERABLE QUESTION:  Why would the Obama birth announcement not be closely associated with those of the Nordyke  twins and printed in the same edition of announcements?  Since theirs were printed on August 16th in the Wednesday Advertiser,  why was Obama’s not also, -but instead appears in the Sunday edition of August 13?  Similarly with the other newspaper’s listing.  If such questions have no logical answers in the legal above-board world, then how about answers in the under-handed,  dishonest, amoral political world?
Many questions arise and are asked in an excellent expose of the disorder seen in the two microfilm records of those birth  announcement pages, -questions which are rationally unanswerable.  Such questions give rise to reasonable speculation that the  images of those newspaper pages were “doctored” to include the name of Barack Obama, -questions such as: “Why were blocks of  identical names between the two newspapers jumbled together in a hodgepodge manner when identical birth lists were given to the  newspapers by the Hawaii Vital Records office?  Did someone from the Hawaii Newspaper Agency in the summer of 2008 intentionally cut and paste blocks in a random fashion in order to sow confusion into “phonied up” August 12, 13, 14, 1961 microfilms?”

One thing is certain.  The appearance of Obama’s name in those newspapers was all the “proof” that people needed to be  convinced and to shutdown any further investigation into Obama’s questionable origins.  If that was what was intended by a  conspiracy to legitimize someone without an American birth certificate, then it worked spectacularly because that is just what  happened.  The lead anchor of FOX News, Bill O’Reilly gave the newspaper birth announcement story his august benediction saying  he had looked into the birth certificate and “found out there were two separate birth announcements made in Honolulu newspapers  on the day Barack Obama was born.”  The day he was born?  Wow! How’s that for the requisite level of fact checking called for in a  high-stakes case just ripe for fraud?
Then he dove face-first into the brain-dead thinking that if the newspaper announcements were faked, then they were faked in 1961, (against odds of a “gazillion to one”), with nary a thought at all given to the possibility that they were not faked when the papers were printed but rather the microfilm record of what was printed had been altered in 2008 or 2007.

The odds he failed to calculate were the odds against the genuineness of a fake Hawaiian short form birth certificate image that appeared from nowhere on a Saul Alinsky-imspired website, followed by “corroborating” newspaper announcement images from two  integrated  newspapers which made false claims and whose “records” was disjointed jumbled messes of disorder surrounding Obama’s birth  announcement, -which images were forwarded from an unknown source to two anonymous bloggers, -one of which wrote an essay  claiming “More Americans Killed By Right Wing Terrorists In The 90s Than Foreign Terrorists.”  How can you ignore the odds against  honest coincidences happening when those who wish you to ignore those coincidences and the suspicions they raise are also those who embrace one who dedicated his “finest work”  to the Devil?

PS.  The reels of microfilm for the days surrounding Obama’s birth are all identical reels from when the microfilm was developed with the lone exception for August 1-15, 1961 which is on a brand of reel completely different from all the others and totally unexplainable

Advertiser replaced reel

PPS  I’ll explain in my next exposition why no announcement of Obama’s birth appeared in the newspapers in August 1961, which lead to the need to doctor the microfilm records.

    And for the record: I actually checked two months worth of birth announcements – with obamas announcements falling in the middle of those two months – and did not find the same pattern of the two newspapers printing the announcements in the same exact order except in the incidence of obamas announcements. I also checked the six weeks of announcements for mid-Jan ’61 thru the end of Feb. ’61 (had copied those to check for obamas parents wedding announcement) and that pattern did not present in those announcements either.

    Obama never had a driver’s license
    he doesn’t know how to drive a car
    or throw a baseball or football.
    he’s not a real American

    Truth seeker and birther blogger, My Very Own Point of View, conducted extensive research into the birth announcements, to include examining rolls of microfiche located in Honolulu and in D.C. at the Library of Congress, back in May, 2010. Much of what Adrien Nash reports here amounts to a confirmation of MVOPOV’s previously published findings.

    It’s important to give credit where credit is due, which in this case means acknowledging MVOPOV’s prior painstaking assemblage of evidence which begins with:

    “This blog post is about the research I have done into the history, microfilms and stories connected to the newspaper birth announcements of obama’s birth.

    I realized quite some time ago that no one had done comparisons on copies from multiple libraries -personally collected- on a large scale. I set off to do so. ”

    Off topic:
    Heard Glenn Beck on his a.m. radio show the other morning lamenting how his detractors still call him a birther even though he has never been one. Paraphrasing, he said, he’s never taken issue with Obama’s Hawaiian birth or eligibility.

    The interjection was awkward, oddly out of place with the topic at hand. Like he just had to fit that in.

    So Glenn, who was it that asked you to get that in on your program? What did that morning email read? Or was it a phone call? And who exactly still calls you a birther? ‘Cause the only thing I’ve heard you called lately is traitor.

    “Why was the appearance of the announcement of the Nordyke twins not in that Sunday edition as well since they were born the next day (Saturday August 5th) and the records for them and Obama would not have left the hospital separately since their births were supposedly so close together?”

    The author is an idiot.

    Both President Obama’s and Stig Waidelich’s BCs were filed/accepted by the DOH on August 8th, 1961 (a Tuesday). The Nordyke’s BCs were filed/accepted on August 11th, 1961 (a Friday), their doctor didn’t sign the BCs until the 11th.

    The Nordyke’s BCs missed the deadline to appear in the Sunday newspapers. Look at the newspaper announcements with the Nordyke births – How many other births from August 4th or 5th appear? Only a couple, where are the rest of them? They are in the same editions as the ones for President Obama and Stig Waidelich. What does that tell you?

    You’ve overlooked the narrative given by either the Hawaiian Dept. of Health or the newspaper (they merged) which was that the list of births was only picked up on Friday for Sunday edition publication. Meaning that there was not mid-week publishing of vital statistics, which was FALSE. Were it true, then a whole lot of births would have been listed on the one big weekly printing.

    But you make a good point which didn’t occur to me, namely the difference in the dates they were received at the registrar’s office.

    My Very Own Point of View
    bits and pieces of what runs through my mind

    This work is exclusive to this blog.
    This blog post is about the research I have done into the history, microfilms and stories connected to the newspaper birth announcements of obama’s birth.

    I realized quite some time ago that no one had done comparisons on copies from multiple libraries -personally collected- on a large scale. I set off to do so.

    My main goal originally was to look for any obvious anomalies.
    Second, the frequency of the two papers posting the birth announcements in the exact same order within a day or two of publication.
    Third, anything that jumped out as being out of place, or dissimilar between the copies from each location.

    I think attention should be drawn to the scratches seen in the microfilm images, in particular, the diagonal scratches. Logically they would be next to impossible, but if they were possible, they would only appear in a very few number of frames, -NOT in multiple appearances within one frame as seen. Since there is no conceivable form of movement of a thick film moving laterally that would generate a diagonal scratch, one must look to an alternate explanation, and there is only one that I can conceive of. It would be the application of a scratched transparency on top of a pristine newly printed and counterfeited copy, -done for the purpose of giving its totally unscratched appearance a look of age and usage.

    That can be done digitally with video. Often video that is not brand new will be run through a filter that adds the look of an old scratched and dirty 8mm home movie. It gives it the important look of something valuable, something treasured and archived for posterity.
    If it can be done for video running hundreds or thousands of frames, it can sure as heck be done for a single frame of microfilm.

    gregnh said this on June 10, 2010

    ladysforest, A friend who lives in HI went to the big island and came back with this report. Aloha Greg,

    We’re back from Hilo.
    What we found:

    Honolulu Star Bulletin: Missing ALL microfiche for dates April 1961-September 1961 (convenient)
    Honolulu Advertiser: August 14, 1961 Confirmation of Obama Announcement.

    We had some extra time and took advantage of the link you forwarded. We took 30 days before and after on both
    newspapers (Honolulu Star Bulletin’s sample was March 1961 and October 1961), taking “ladysforest’s” test a little further. What we found was NO matching birth announcements by order or names, in either newspaper for those months.

    Hopes this helps, any questions just let me know.

    Take care,

    My premise was, or is, that there is another birth announcement at another time…would love to run that by you. Email me….
