Typography, Act Three: ascenders and descenders. (Definitive proof that Dr. Conspiracy is full of ordure).

Obama’s Coast Province General Hospital (CPGH), Mombasa, British Protectorate of Kenya, certificate of birth was issued in the year 1961.   Does the certificate of birth contain typography and kerning which was not yet possible at that time in history?

Dr. Conspiracy wrote, with the aid of a furtive and seemingly delusive and self-proclaimed pressman (calls himself “Sean” and has a friend named “Howling Coyote”) with a curriculum vitae supposedly dating to the 1950s, that Obama’s 1961 CPGH Kenyan certificate of birth is a forgery on grounds that the document contains, in their opinion, an example of kerning in which the descender (i.e., part of a letter that extends below the level of its base, e.g, the bottoms of g,j,y,q and p) of the letter y hangs under the letter n in the word Kenya.

It is the position of Dr. Conspiracy, ‘Sean’ and ‘Howling Coyote’ that such kerning was not yet possible in 1961.    Dr. Conspiracy’s cowplops (03.15.2011 & 03.19.2011) are linked directly below:

The kerning in question is, as stated in paragraph 2 of this report, that of the y and the n in Kenya:

Kenya kerning

I’m not sure whether or not the descender of the y really does, or doesn’t, hang under the n in the Kenya.   The document is a 2009 certified copy of an original 1961 document and is, to some extent, blurry and askew.   It could go either way I suppose, 50/50.

What I have ascertained though is that Dr. Conspiracy and the furtive and self-proclaimed pressman/men had nearly absolutely no idea what they were talking about.

What I have below is what I what I’d like to call the Obot/Birther Challenge.   Below I have provided a list of words which I have scanned and subsequently embedded to this blog report.   I have divided the list of word scans into two groups, descenders and ascenders

We already went over, in paragraph 2, what descenders are.   So what then are ascenders?  Ascenders are the part of a letter that extends above the main part (e.g., the tops of b,d,f,h,k and l).

I’d like for you, the reader (birther, obot and the impartial), to tell me whether or not any of the decenders hang under an adjacent letter.  Answer separately for each scanned word.   Likewise with the ascenders, please me tell whether or not any of them hang over an adjacent letter.  Again, answer separately for each scanned word:

About Lucas Daniel Smith

"The counts of the indictment are luxury, bad manners, contempt for authority, disrespect to elders, and a love for chatter in place of exercise...Children began to be the tyrants, not the slaves, of their households. They no longer rose from their seats when an elder entered the room; they contradicted their parents, chattered before company, gobbled up the dainties at table, and committed various offences against Hellenic tastes, such as crossing their legs. They tyrannised over the paidagogoi and schoolmasters." - Kenneth John Freeman (from his Cambridge dissertation published in 1907)

    I noticed that every word had at least one letter that encroched the verticle edge of the adjacent letter.

    Readers, myself included, are wondering what “tow brain cells” are.

    I agree with Gordon!

    I enlarged the two groups of word samples in the post that were classified as containing ‘Descenders’ and ‘Ascenders’. I then did a ‘Print Screen’ operation for each group, switched to ‘landscape’ view in MS Word, and enlarged the field again to fully cover a 8.5 x 11.0 sheet. Finally, I printed out the two documents and examined each word closely.

    I think, without a doubt, that ‘kerning’ could be observed in all the words in both groups.

    The famous artist, Caravaggio, and the acclaimed short story writer, O. Henry, both spent some time in prison. Albert Einstein and Leonardo da Vinci had troubled childhoods. Talented and determined individuals CAN rise above their backgrounds to accomplish amazing things. .. Lucas Daniel Smith DID obtain an authentic, certified copy of OBAMA’S KENYAN BIRTH CERTIFICATE and is now effectively showing it to the entire world.

    Be assured that no keyboard kibitzing ‘goody goody’ would have had the necessary street-smarts, ability, interest, intelligence, perseverance, research background in Africa, and gonads to accomplish what Lucas did!

    At least one other individual, to my knowledge, tried back in 2008 to obtain pertinent information about Obama in Kenya but failed miserably! Kenya is a beautiful country but it can be very dangerous to those not familiar with how things really work and get accomplished in third world countries.


    We are very fortunate that Lucas Daniel Smith made that trip from the Democratic Republic of the Congo to Nairobi, Kenya in February 2009 to conduct an important interview related to his ongoing scientific research on the cryptic (as in cryptozoology), dinosaur-like animal that is commonly referred to as Mokele-Mbembe.

    There, in Nairobi, he was repeatedly informed by the locals that the recently inaugurated U.S. President, Barack Obama, WAS ACTUALLY BORN IN KENYA!

    Lucas, the young, archetypical ‘bold adventurer’ and ‘historical artifact collector’ chose to postpone his research work on Mokele-Mbembe and, instead, concentrate his efforts on obtaining Obama’s birth certificate from the Coast Province General Hospital in Mombasa. He was able to do this on February 19th and later, most importantly, to escape alive with the document from Kenya!

    IMO, the American Patriots need to get together and make far better use of this valuable, authentic, supremely incriminating document than they have in the last 4 YEARS!
