Billionaire businessman Donald Trump, who staged a weeks-long public
campaign questioning Barack Obama's eligibility to be president during
March and April and rose to the top of the pool of potential
candidates for the 2012 GOP nomination then as a result says he
believes the "birth certificate" released by the White House is forged.
Trump asked Corsi about the book, its evidence and what is happening
next in the effort to document whether Obama is, in fact,
constitutionally qualified for the presidency under Article 2, Section
1's "natural born citizen" requirement.
Trump said his period of almost-complete silence on the issue
following the release by the White House on April 27 of the image of a
"Certificate of Live Birth" from the state of Hawaii was not because he
was satisfied with the document.
(Story continues below)
"I always said I wanted to know if it was real," Trump told Corsi.
The image has been challenged by a number of experts in the field,
and the original, of course, has yet to be seen, much less analyzed.
The state of Hawaii said it inserted "safety paper" into a copy
machine and copied onto the new paper the original image from its state
records. However, state officials were unwilling to confirm to
WND after the image was released that what was issued
by the White House was, in fact, an accurate representation of their
During their conversation, Trump told Corsi his own
computer expert told him at the release that it was a
That opinion has been repeated many times, and WND has reported on a
few of the objections that have been raised by various experts:
Ivan Zatkovich, of Tampa-based eComp Consultants, for example,
analyzed the various layers in the PDF file released by the White
House, and concluded: "The content clearly indicates that the document
was knowingly and explicitly edited and modified before it was placed
on the web."
The image that was released, described by the White House as "proof
positive" of Obama's Hawaiian birth:
released by the White House April 27, 2011
Zatkovich, with 28 years experience in computer science and document
management and for more than 10 years an expert witness providing
testimony in federal court in both criminal and civil litigation, said
the multiple PDF document layers are unusual.
"When a paper document is scanned on a scanner and saved as a PDF file
it normally contains only a single layer of graphical information. The
PDF that appears on the White House website however, contains multiple
layers of graphic information. Multiple layers usually appear in a
document like this when it is being edited or modified in some
"It is possible to take a single layer PDF and inadvertently create
multiple layers, without changing the image in any fashion. But that
does not appear to be the case here. The multiple layers in the PDF
document are a result of changes made to the image," his report said.
Among the various items that were separated into different layers
include the main text, the
mother's occupation, the dates accepted, the stamp
and signature of the state registrar and the time stamp of the state
is broken into layers.
The background layer with all of the additional layers removed
essentially has the text removed except some random portions of
signatures and a white border where the text appears on other layers:
background, without layers of information added on top
Also, the main layer of text reveals most of the wording on the
document, with strange exceptions such as the first part of Stanley
Dunham Obama's signature. The main text layer has
only "unham Obama." Likewise, "Kenya" is spelled "enya" and "Barack"
is spelled Ba ack."
Denninger posted a series of reports online, including on YouTube,
where he explains his concerns, which focus around the lettering as it
appears on the document that reportedly is a photocopy on green
"safety paper" of the original record in Hawaii
He explains that the type on the birth document show evidence of
"kerning," the squeezing of letters into a line so that they intrude
into adjacent letter spaces. Kerning is routine since the advent of
word processors and computers, but impossible with a typewriter.
"This process, of course, requires that you know what the next
letter is. With a computer this is pretty easy, since the computer can
retroactively go back and adjust, and it also can typeset the current
letter with the knowledge of what the previous one was," he
reported. "A typewriter, on the other hand, is a mechanical device. It
does not know what the next letter is that you will type, nor does
it know what the last letter was that you typed. It thus has a
typeface that always leaves physical space between the
boundary of each character."
His full explanation is on video:
"To refute this point you must come up with a typewriter that
contains a flux capacitor and thus is capable of accurately predicting
the future," he said. "This document has been assembled by somebody on
However, the document released by the White House was entirely typed.
Only the signatures and two dates at the very bottom were "handwritten."
What Fukino described is apparently a different document from what Obama
released to the public.
Among other questions that remain about the document:
The objectivity of "experts" cited by the mainstream media to
verify the birth certificate is suspect, including that of Fox News
Channel's Jean-Claude Tremblay, who assured America they "should not
be suspicious" of the document, but who, WND discovered,
heralded Obama's election victory in an online post.
Obama's posted birth certificate
contains the same anomalies as a well-known forgery that claimed
he was born in Kenya, suggesting the anomalous markings came from the
same source. "How could Obama's 'real' birth certificate share these
unique characteristics with an obvious forgery?"
Farah. "For the life of me, I can't figure out an answer other
than they were created by the same person or persons."
Obama's purported birth certificate
contains over a dozen differences in form from the verified,
Hawaii copy of the birth certificate issued to the Nordyke twins, born
the next day at the same reported hospital.
The local registrar listed in the Nordyke twins' birth certificate
notably different than the local registrar on the Obama birth
Though Obama was born before the Nordyke twins, and though his
birth was filed with the registrar three days before the twins' birth,
Obama's purported birth certificate
has a higher
In Box 3, "This Birth," there are two "Xs" above "Twin" and
"Triplet" why are these "Xs" here and what do they signify?
What is the meaning of the smudges in the Obama birth certificate
in the box containing the name of the attending physician?
What is the significance of the numbers, seen vertically, on the
right side of the Obama birth certificate?
There are those
critics, too, who says that the document released by
the White House, if authentic, actually proves Obama's ineligibility.
They cite the indication that Barack Obama Sr. was listed as the father,
but he never was a U.S. citizen. They contend those who wrote the
requirement for presidents to be a "natural born citizen" disqualified
dual citizens at birth, such as Obama.
Listen to Corsi's account of the conversation with Trump:
"I told him he needs to publicly say that the document in the vault,
the original long-form birth certificate, needs to be exposed and
examined independently," Corsi said. "The doctor's records, the
Kapiolani records of Ann Dunham to corroborate she was in that
"I told him if you don't press these issues you can't be surprised if
there are those who think you're working with Barack Obama [on the
dispute]," Corsi added.
During much of April Trump made regular appearances on
shows and news broadcasts, and almost every time
either he or the interviewer raised questions about Obama's eligibility.
At the same time, he regularly was in conversation with Corsi and others
who helped Corsi investigate the Obama eligibility dispute about the
evidence that exists.
CNN/Opinion Research Corp. poll demonstrated, by raising questions
about Obama's eligibility repeatedly, going as far as suggesting Obama's
tenure might be illegal, Trump rose in popularity among GOP voters.
In that poll, 19 percent of Republicans and Republican-leaning
independents said they'd likely support Trump for the 2012 GOP
His support rose from only 10 percent just a month earlier.
"There's something fishy about the whole thing," Trump has said of
Obama's background, birth story and constant refusal to release a wide
range of documents that would reveal information about his heritage and
Trump has also been skeptical regarding the oft-cited 1961 Honolulu
"I see so much fraud in this world, an ad like that could have been
staged. I see so many fraudulent things going on that would be like the
least of it," Trump said.
He suggested it was incredible that no doctor, nurse or other person
has come forward to recall the birth of such a famous person.
Trump told Fox News
Bill O'Reilly the significance of the dispute isn't
clear to many people.
"There is certainly a chance that he was not born in this country.
Now if he was not born in this country, that means he can't be
president. It's very simple," Trump explained.
