Copyright certificate for Obama’s book was falsified

When Random House published Obama’s first memoir, Dreams From My Father, in 1994, they had to fill out a Certificate of Registration to copyright the book.

Attorney Dr. Orly Taitz obtained a copy of the Certificate of Registration forDream From My Father, and noticed something odd. As Dr. Taitz explains:

In the area [of the certificate] where one has to post the birth date of the author, Obama posted USA. Clearly, a constitutional scholar and editor of Harvard law review should  understand the meaning of the question: “what is your date of birth”. Shockingly, Obama answered USA.

So Dr. Taitz asked a typesetting expert, Paul Irey, to look at the certificate. Irey was certified as an expert by Judge Sherry Reid in an Obama eligibility trial in Indiana.

In an email to Dr. Taitz, Irey confirmed that:

  • The typesetting for the word “USA” is different from the rest and it was done using a manual typewriter which was not in use by professional publishing houses in 1994.
  • The word “USA” was typed in two other places on the certificate by two different typewriters because of the different font sizes.
  • Irey also speculated that the certificate was “remade” because the country of birth was Kenya in the original “real” certificate. In other words, a forged form was created to replace the original Certificate of Registration.
