FreeRepublic – Cold Case Posse Supporter

Again, NBC and his cohort are admitted amateurs and they have no credentials to match Reed Hayes, Doug Vogt or Adobe expert Mara Zabest. Zullo needs to consult with them to counter this latest disinformation tactic they are using and neutralize their scheme.

Yes, we all are amateurs who have applied our skills to venture deeper than the Cold Case Posse has. The CCP made the regrettable error of dismissing John Woodman’s findings, as well as the findings by others, that the document strongly suggested an MRC (Mixed Raster Compression) workflow.

Unable to indentify the software/hardware combination, they dismissed Woodman’s findings.

Through coincidence, luck, serendipity, hard work and some sleuthing, these amateurs have now proposed a fully testable workflow and have documented how the workflow explains many if not most of the ‘artifacts’ and ‘anomalies’ identified by  ‘experts’.

Luckily we do not need to wave claims of ‘expertise’, we have something much better: A workable and testable hypothesis and the supporting data. In that context, I am also interested to hear what Mr Hayes had to say about the document, as he too, seems to insist that the document contained anomalies that led to a forger conclusion, but as was the case with the CCP, the forger may very well have been a simple algorithmic workflow.

I am however looking forward to third parties taking a look at the evidence and the workflow and report their findings.

That’s how one scientifically tests hypotheses.

As to Mr Vogt, I believe that his ‘criminal complaint’ got the right attention. It appears that the FBI was not very impressed. Nor was for example Judge Malihi who heard the testimony of seven witnesses and received additional affidavits.

The Court finds the testimony of the witnesses, as well as the exhibits tendered, to be of little, if any, probative value, and thus wholly insufficient to support plaintiffs’ allegations

CCP Supporter: I personally believe ‘NBC’ is not replicating Obama’s document at all but rather insinuating he is and changing the data to make it seem so while using Obama’s existing document image on the White House website.

We all have our beliefs and if they provide us with comfort then who am I to disagree with them. However, for those who are interested, I am providing all the necessary data and steps that can be reproduced by anyone interested.

If you are right in your beliefs, then it should not be too hard to find errors that undermine the hypothesis presented.

Such is how science works and I am totally open to any feedback that either supports or contradicts my findings. Speculations are not in that category however.

    “I am providing all the necessary data and steps that can be reproduced by anyone interested.”

    What findings ? Where are your results ? Scribd is waiting !

    Where is the line number for the YCbCr in the Xerox 7535 PDF ?

    You have dodged more of my bullets than Iron Man.

    Like how come all your images are upside-down ?

    How come your images don’t open in the correct orientation in Illustrator when all nine image layers of the WH LFCOLB PDF open correctly?

    Where’s the numbers for your object boundaries ? If you don’t satisfy the 16 x 16 Block requirement of JPEG then lossless compression with JPEG is out of the question.

    And nobody is buying your identical character explanation as a measure of anything relevant. It’s amazing that all of you Obamatrons immediately jumped all over Hayes because he was doing all of his analysis on the WH LFCOLB PDF instead of the original document. But you have all of the original documents that you have scanned and you could care less whether your copies are duplicates of the originals.

    I had a very productive day. I managed to extract the thumbnail image from Kevin Davidson’s Re-Constructed Obama LFCOLB. It’s a very interesting image.

    I have now posted the Xerox raw and Xerox preview version for your perusal. Funny how you have no comments on the data…

    Where is the line number for the YCbCr in the Xerox 7535 PDF ?

    It is within the Obj 12 stream which is ZLIB encoded and thus not visible until deflated.

    You have dodged more of my bullets than Iron Man.

    Those are not bullets, they are duds…

    Did you try the preview version? And yes, they are in opposite rotation since the 7535 was not scanned upside down and rotated. As I have shown, this resolves the orientation issues.

    Where’s the numbers for your object boundaries ? If you don’t satisfy the 16 x 16 Block requirement of JPEG then lossless compression with JPEG is out of the question.

    You are so clueless. JPEG is never lossless. The MCU alignment is relevant to a different issues which is related to rotation. To avoid these issues, preview, rather than rotating the JPEG itself, rotates the bitmap generated from the JPEG data. But yes, these alignments can be tested. I am amazed that you have not yet done so…

    Apples and oranges. I merely have the burden to show that my workflow explains these artifacts. Of course, having access to the original would be somewhat helpful but irrelevant.

    Come on Hermitian, use some reason and logic here… Love it how you now are blaming me for analyzing the PDF🙂 when it was the CCP and others who claimed forgery based on it…

    So clueless my friend…

    See : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JPEG

    “JPEG compression

    ” The compression method is usually lossy, meaning that some original image information is lost and cannot be restored, possibly affecting image quality. There is an optional lossless mode defined in the JPEG standard; however, this mode is not widely supported in products.

    “Lossless editing[edit]

    “See also: jpegtran and Commons:User:Cropbot

    “A number of alterations to a JPEG image can be performed losslessly (that is, without recompression and the associated quality loss) as long as the image size is a multiple of 1 MCU block (Minimum Coded Unit) (usually 16 pixels in both directions, for 4:2:0 chroma subsampling). Utilities that implement this include jpegtran, with user interface Jpegcrop, and the JPG_TRANSFORM plugin to IrfanView.

    “Blocks can be rotated in 90 degree increments, flipped in the horizontal, vertical and diagonal axes and moved about in the image. Not all blocks from the original image need to be used in the modified one.

    “The top and left edge of a JPEG image must lie on a 8 × 8 pixel block boundary, but the bottom and right edge need not do so. This limits the possible lossless crop operations, and also prevents flips and rotations of an image whose bottom or right edge does not lie on a block boundary for all channels (because the edge would end up on top or left, where – as aforementioned – a block boundary is obligatory).

    “When using lossless cropping, if the bottom or right side of the crop region is not on a block boundary then the rest of the data from the partially used blocks will still be present in the cropped file and can be recovered.

    “It is also possible to transform between baseline and progressive formats without any loss of quality, since the only difference is the order in which the coefficients are placed in the file.

    “Furthermore, several JPEG images can be losslessly joined together, as long as the edges coincide with block boundaries. jpeg supports 12-bit and 32-bit color as RGB.”

    No lossless JPEG compression you say…

    I have the JPG_TRANSFORM plugin to IrfanView. Lossless rotations of JPEGs are a snap with this plugin.

    You do know that you are dead in the water if you don’t prove that your many image layers duplicate the boundary alignment precision achieved by the human forger on the WH LFCOLB PDF. My results are still posted here on Scribd for all to read :

    We are all waiting to see your comparative data. Of course you are the only one who could produce the results because you haven’t released any of your files.

    Of course one show stopper for you is the poor performance of the Xerox Workcenter to separate the text from the background. That deficiency is proof positive that your Xerox forger could never have produced the WH LFCOLB PDF. And then there are those new objects that Xerox produces that are not present in the WH LFCOLB. What’s your fix for those additional objects? Maybe your Preview operator would simply delete them ? But then that act would be a deliberate alteration of an identity document.

    It would be very useful if you would keep a running list of the deficiencies in your work flow where it doesn’t exactly duplicate the WH LFCOLB. You say that you have overcome all of your early failures but talk is cheap. Where are the results ? Where are the PDFs? All of mine are publically available.

  6. ” The compression method is usually lossy, meaning that some original image information is lost and cannot be restored, possibly affecting image quality. There is an optional lossless mode defined in the JPEG standard; however, this mode is not widely supported in products.

    As I said, JPEG is a lossy compression for all practical purposes. And you are comparing apples and oranges when talking about certain transformation which can be done under certain particular circumstances.

    The Xerox MRC compression is not consistent, and that is not a big surprise but it is very efficient in compressing documents. Your argument is illogical as I have shown how sometimes the whole block is separated, at other times, some characters are dropped.

    You still do not comprehend the relevance of my findings. It’s not that it matches exactly, it is that is totally contradicts the claims that scanning does not produce multiple monochrome bitmap layers.

    As to my PDF’s, let’s see the PDF created by a forger with the exact steps as to how it was done… Of course you have nothing.

    I have now released the 7535 raw and preview documents and you move the goal posts once again.

    Fascinating my friend, this is just too much fun and I am in no rush to abide by your time table. I check, double check and report.

    What have you done lately?

    And yet you refuse to do such a trivial task, because I already know the outcome and likely so do you, which is why you refuse to try to rebut my claims.

    If you were really interested in rebutting my findings you would have done the simple work… I did a back of the envelope calculation which supported the 8 bit alignments.

    Hilarious how Hermitian focuses on the unknowns and refuses to address the knowns…

    For good reason, they totally destroy his claims.
