First, the president didn’t have to, but he lied about the reason he released the birth certificate. The president said that the news media was distracted by the birth certificate controversy when he was attempting to control the national narrative with economic issues.( see story)
But not so. As indicated by the Pew Research Center the number one topic covered by the media during the time period the president specified was the economy not his birth certificate. Thus putting his motive for releasing the document in doubt.
News about the president and/or his birth certificate was a distant 4th in reporting by the media not the dominant news story that the president said.
Then there are the discrepancies on the form that the website, the Smoking Gun has already pointed out.
• If the original document was in a bound volume (as reflected by the curvature of the left hand side of the certificate), how can the green patterned background of the document's safety paper be so seamless?And then there is this little matter. If what the president has just recently released is the original certified copy of his birth record then that would mean for 2 ½ years the president has been depended upon forgeries which he has been demanding that the American people accept as proof of his eligibility.
• Why, if Obama was born on August 4, 1961, was the “Date Accepted by Local Reg.” four days later on August 8, 1961?
• What is the significance of the smudges in the box containing the name of the reported attendant?
• David A. Sinclair, the M.D. who purportedly signed the document, died nearly eight years ago at age 81. So he is conveniently unavailable to answer questions about Obama’s reported birth.
• In the “This Birth” box there are two mysterious Xs above “Twin” and “Triplet.” Is there a sibling or two unaccounted for?
• What is the significance of the mysterious numbers, seen vertically, on the document’s right side?
• Finally, the “Signature of Local Registrar” in box 21 may be a desperate attempt at establishing the document’s Hawaiian authenticity. Note to forgers: It is spelled “Ukulele.” (source)
I say forgeries because the first released COLB was invalidated. The administration later claimed that they invalidated it because they thought the number would be a problem. So they blacked the number out.
When it was brought to the Soetoro administration’s attention that the form was invalid because of what they did. They then reissued a COLB with the number. 151 1961 10641 which is suspicious to say the least since the just newly released “official” birth certificate has the number of 151 61 10641.
Which means that one of the documents was a forgery. (see progression of released Soetoro birth records):
And now a third release
Ultimately it will become clear to even the most entrenched Progressive Liberal Soetoro sycophants that this new release is but the third bite of the apple. Not to mention, there are problems with the number again as pointed on by Dr. Corsi.
The problem since the short-form certificate was released during the 2008 presidential campaign has always been this:
• As WND reported, the long-form birth certificates issued by Kapi'olani to the Nordyke twins have certificate numbers lower than the number given Obama, even though the president purportedly was born at the same hospital a day earlier than the Nordykes.So the Certification of Live Birth that the president released yesterday and then promptly headed off to Oprah for more of that 2008 Oprah magic, has to be carefully screened to determine whether this document is not just one more in a long line of “Shut up” here’s the birth certificate "are you happynow" documents.
• Note, Susan Nordyke, the first twin, was born at 2:12 p.m. Hawaii time Aug. 5, 1961, and was given certificate No. 151 – 61 – 10637, which was filed with the Hawaii registrar Aug. 11, 1961.
• Gretchen Nordyke, the second twin, was born at 2:17 p.m. Hawaii time Aug. 5, 1961, and was given certificate No. 151 – 61 – 10638, which was also filed with the Hawaii registrar Aug. 11, 1961.
• Yet, according to the Certification of Live Birth displayed by FactCheck.org during the 2008 presidential campaign – and now according to the long-form birth certificate the White House released yesterday – Barack Obama was given a higher certificate number than the Nordykes.
• Note, Obama was given certificate No. 151 – 1961 – 10641, even though he was born Aug. 4, 1961, the day before the Nordyke twins, and his birth was registered with the Hawaii Department of Health registrar three days earlier, Aug. 8, 1961.
In 1961, the birth certificate numbers were not assigned by the hospitals.
Instead, the numbers were stamped to the birth record by the Hawaii Department of Health at the main office in Honolulu.
This is the only place birth certificate numbers were assigned.
At the last step of the process, the documents were accepted by the registrar general, with the date of registration inserted in box No. 22 on the lower right hand corner of the long-form birth certificate.
The date the birth document was accepted by the registrar general was the date the birth certificate number was stamped on the birth record.
The birth certificate number was stamped on the form by a rubber stamp that automatically increased by one each time a birth certificate was stamped.
The question, therefore, is how was it possible that the Nordyke twins had their birth certificates accepted by the registrar general in Hawaii three days later than the registrar general accepted Obama's birth certificate, when the twins' numbers are lower than Obama's number?
So again thanks to Donald Trump, Dr. Jerome Corsi, Joseph Farah and the Birthers for speaking truth to power when we all were expected to accept a document(s) that was not real, as proof that this president is constitutionally legitimate.
History will show that you all did a great service for your country.
