The people who "certified" Barack Obama



help fight the media




Jess Henig and Joe Miller

I was looking for a photo to add to the left column, when I re-discovered these photos of the two people who "certified" Obama's eligibility to serve as POTUS.

They are employees of, an organization that bills itself as "non-partisan," but is part of the Annenberg network of liberal-left causes and organizations -- just like Bill Ayers' Chicago Annenberg Challenge -- Annenberg, and its causes, are way left of center.

As the world now knows, published a web page entitled, "Born in the U.S.A. -- The truth about Obama's birth certificate."  The entire webpage is ONE BIG LIE!

The counterfeit document is proffering on this page, and refers to as a birth certificate -- 31 times -- is not a birth certificate.  It's not even a document.  At least three qualified examiners have said it's bogus.  But that didn't stop from employing Goebbel's "Big Lie" technique:

"If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie.  It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State."

And it worked!

This absurd webpage, and the bogus document it contains, has been referenced by judges, members of Congress and the ObamaMedia as prima facie evidence that Barack Obama is eligible to serve as Commander in Chief, even though the Obama Campaign has publicly admitted that Obama was -- "at birth" -- a citizen of Kenya, a British subject and is a "native [born US] citizen" -- it's on their website -- anchor babies are "native born citizens."

"Native born" citizenship status is different than "natural born" citizenship. "Native born" American citizens are simply not eligible to serve as Commander in Chief. identifies their anal-ists as Jess Henig and Joe Miller.  OK, that's fine, but who and what are Jess Henig and Joe Miller?  Are they qualified to perform an analysis of ANY document, or are they just a couple of guys hanging around's office, or are they political operators?  What are their bona fides? doesn't say.  Wonder why?

Would you buy a used car from these two?
Well, I found out.  The two employees who were granted access to Obama's bogus Certification of Live Birth (COLB) are NOT document examiners or experts.  They never even checked ID's at a college bar. 

Joe Miller earned his B.A. in philosophy from Hampden-Sydney College, his M.A. in philosophy from Virginia Tech and his Ph.D. in political philosophy from the University of Virginia.  He joined the Annenberg Public Policy Center in April 2007 after working as a writer with the Mack/Crounse Group.  Previously he was an assistant professor of philosophy at the United States Military Academy and at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke, and a visiting fellow at the Callaghan Centre for Conflict Studies at the University of Wales at Swansea.

Jessica Henig earned her B.A. in history of science from Smith College and her M.A. in English from the University of Maryland.  While at Maryland, she taught digital literature and rhetorical writing.  Prior to joining the Annenberg Public Policy Center in May 2007, she worked for the National Academies Press.  She has also worked for the National Institutes of Health and as a freelance researcher and editor.  She left in January, 2011 to become a news writer for

No forensic document examiner background here, but it does look like she has some Photoshop skills. 

They are a couple of partisan hacks -- just what you'd expect -- Jess took the photos presented on their webpage and did all of the writing, while Joe basically held the COLB open for Jess to photograph -- suitable work for a Ph. D.

Those two are completely unqualified to perform any kind of forensic examination of any document, and knows it -- and so do Henig and Miller.  They are definitely not qualified to "certify" Barack Obama as president.

FactCheck does say their, "representatives got a chance to spend some time with the 'birth certificate,' and we can attest to the fact that it is real and three-dimensional and resides at the Obama headquarters in Chicago."  In my mind, that clearly shows they were working with and for the Obama Campaign and that Obama and his people are involved in this lie.

Lie?  Hell, this is a conspiracy, the greatest fraud in American history and boldly admits their part in it.
