Obama Is/Was A Kenyan Citizen
Under the Independence Constitution of Kenya, Obama became a Kenyan citizen on December 12, 1963.  There is no record that he has ever renounced his Kenyan citizenship.  On his senate web site, Obama tap dances around his own dual nationality when discussing his father.  Obama obviously knows, because his father told him, that he also held/holds Kenyan nationality.

Once again, we find Barry O concealing fascinating information about his identity.  There is nothing unusual about dual nationality.  Indeed, ancient Roman Law doctrines of jus sanguini and jus soli come into play, because both Kenya and the U. S. recognize dual nationality.  Once again, the issue is not "legality."  The issue is the cover-up; Obama’s concealment of his own identity.  From us, and most of all from himself.

Obama was also registered in both of the Jakarta schools he attended as a citizen of Indonesia.  Does he also enjoy Indonesian citizenship?  Inquiring minds want to know.
Obama Returns To His Roots

In August, 1985, Obama travels to Kenya for the first time. (Some reports have the year as 1986, and some as late as 1988)

Obama's 40-year-old cousin Said Hussein Obama commented, "My cousin found it difficult when he came here to learn of his six half-brothers and sisters were born to four different mothers.



Obama's left hand is on the shoulder of Kezia, Obama Sr.'s first wife, who said, "The first time I met Barack Jr. was when he came to Kenya in 1985.  He was so much like his father, his looks, his voice, everything.  It was like seeing my husband all over again."
 

In addition to Obama's half-sister, Auma (Obama's right hand), Kezia has three sons by Barack Sr.  Her two youngest, Bernard and Abo, live in Nairobi. They are all Muslims.
There Are No Facts
In researching Obama's mythology, there are no facts.  Here is an example.

The above source says Obama went to Kenya in 1985, 1986, or 1989, but here's a source that says it was 1983:
 

A Sunday Nation team that set out to trace Obama's roots was surprised to find that, unknown to many, Obama has actually been to this village twice. First in 1983, when he had come to mourn his late father, Barack Hussein Obama, who had died in Nairobi in 1982.  He managed to slip quietly into the village, pray at his father's graveyard and meet a few relatives and villagers.

Return Of The Native
Obama visited Kenya again, in August, 2006 -- this time on the taxpayers' dime.  While he was in the northeast of Kenya, Obama was photographed as a Somali elder, in full Muslim regalia.



The photo appears in the February 4th, 2008 edition of "The Examiner," under the caption, "Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama is dressed in Muslim attire while on a trip to Kenya." (Click source image to enlarge)

Gateway Pundit has uncovered what is probably the original posting of the photograph at Han-Geeska Afrika Onlline.

[Geeska Afrika caption:] U.S. Senator Barack Obama, right, is dressed as a Somali Elder by Sheikh Mahmed Hassan, left, during his visit to Wajir, a rural area in northeastern Kenya, near the borders with Somalia and Ethiopia.  The area is at the epicenter of a severe drought that has hit the Horn of Africa region, after erratic and insufficient rains during the April-June season.

So it isn’t a faked photograph after all.
 

Oddly enough, there are other photographs of Mr. Obama during his (taxpayer funded) trip to Kenya in August 2006, where he is wearing what would appear to be the same red shirt, khaki pants and wristwatch.



Indeed, there was even a movie made to document Mr. Obama’s historic (taxpayer funded) trip to his father’s homeland. (Again, note the red shirt).

Obama Illegally Campaigns In Africa
During this visit, Obama's Criticism Irks Kenyan Government.  Government Says Obama Is A Stooge For Political Opposition
by Mike Flannery, CBS 2 Political Editor

(August) There are signs of tension between Sen. Barack Obama and African leaders.  On Monday, Obama stepped up his criticism of government corruption in Kenya.

At the University of Nairobi, the senator offered more pointed criticism, something he's done almost every day since arriving last week.  After remaining largely silent, the government of President Mwai Kibaki is beginning to respond, suggesting that Obama may have fallen under the spell of opposition leader Raila Odinga, Obama's cousin

Odinga, is a member of Obama's ancestral tribe, the Luo, and a Muslim.  He is the son of Senior’s sister, a direct first cousin and nephew of Obama's father.

A potential presidential candidate himself, Odinga's been at Obama's elbow here fairly often and is a member of the Obama family's Luo tribe.

"Sen. Obama has to look at critically about where he's receiving his advice from," said government spokesman Dr. Alfred Mutua. "Just because somebody, somewhere wants to run for president and is using Sen. Obama as his stooge, as his puppet to be able to get to where he wants to get to."



Obama campaigns for Raila Odinga during his 2006 visit to Kenya.

Where are the transcripts of the speeches he gave here?  Wouldn’t it be great to be able to read them?  Do the people of the state of Illinois know about Obama’s radical background?

The Dual Allegiance Question

Obama was involved in campaigning actively for the election of Raila Odinga for President of Kenya.  This act was undertaken by Obama when he owed allegiance to the USA as a US Senator.  The BBC reported on Obama’s activity for Odinga,who is now Prime Minister of Kenya.

 

It is illegal, by US Statute under 18 USC, Part 1, Chapter 115, Sec.2381 to give aid and comfort to our enemies.  To do so is treason.   Odinga is directly associated with the people who bombed (2) US Embassies.  One in Tanzania and one in Nairobi.  Obama supported this terrorist Odinga.

 

Odinga claimed to be Obama’s "cousin" and reportedly Obama has continued to take undue interest in and with Odinga and his policy stance on Kenyan politics.

Luo's Rule
After Obamas 2006 visit, Odinga supporters created T-shirts and posters with computer-altered images showing Obama Jr. and Kenyan presidential candidate Odinga standing side by side with arms around each other.

That caused one excited Kenyan blogger to write, "in 2009, we might see a Luo president in Kenya, a Luo president in the USA, and a Luo ambassador in Washington, D.C."
Odinga Visits Cousin Barack
In June, 2007, Raila flew to the US, where he held talks with Senator Barack Obama, one of the candidates seeking the Democratic Party ticket to vie for the American presidency.
Odinga Runs For President Of Kenya

  

  
Obama and Odinga share the same Luo heritage and history and has made it possible for them to share the same spotlight at this defining moment in Kenyan and American histories about hope and fear.

Raila Odinga, who is Obama's first cousin, has, in his own words, a "close personal friendship" with Obama.  When Obama went to Kenya in August of 2006, he was hosted by Raila and spoke in praise of him at several rallies in Nairobi.  Obama’s bias for his fellow Luo was so blatant that a Kenya government spokesman denounced Obama during his visit as Raila’s "stooge."

Odinga Loses
On the 27th, Raila Odinga, Obama’s cousin, lost the presidential election in Kenya.  In true Marxist fashion, Odinga rallied his Luo followers in western Kenya, ordering them  to the streets, demanding a new election -- and the violence commenced.

In classic Marxist tradition, Obama's Kenyan 1st cousin, Raila Odinga, accusing President Mwai Kibaki of stealing the Dec. 27 election,

Kibaki "must step down or there must be a re-election -- in this I will not be compromised.  You cannot steal my cow, and I catch you red-handed, and then expect me to share the milk because the cow is mine."

More than 1,000 people, mostly Kikuyu Christians, have been killed, and 300,000 others have been forced from their homes by Odinga's followers -- this from a  guy who made a deal to install an Islamic government in Kenya.
Islam Picked Odinga
Islam had picked Raila to win.  The Evangelical Alliance of Kenya has posted on its website a photograph copy of a Memorandum of Understanding, dated and signed on August 29, 2007, between Raila Odinga and Shiekh Abdullah Abdi, chairman of the National Muslim Leaders Forum of Kenya.

Here is a summary on the agreement which was signed:
    

 It pledges the support of Kenyan Moslems for Raila’s election.  In return, as President of Kenya, Raila agrees to 14 actions, listed a) through n) on page two.

 Within 6 months re-write the Constitution of Kenya to recognize Shariah as the only true law sanctioned by the Holy Quran for Muslim declared regions.

 Within one year facilitate the establishment of a Shariah court in every Kenyan divisional headquarters.  [Note: everywhere in Kenya, not just in "Muslim declared regions."]

 Popularize Islam, the only true religion… by ordering every primary school in Kenya in the regions to conduct daily Madrassa classes.

 Impose a total ban on open-air gospel crusades by worshippers of the cross…

 Outlaw gospel programs… on KBC, the National Broadcaster.

 Impose a total ban on the public consumption of alcoholic beverages…

 Impose an immediate ban on women’s public dressing styles that are considered immoral and offensive to the Muslim faith…

    
Obama's involvement in Kenyan politics, whether tribal or religious, is bothersome.

Especially if it is both.

Odinga Unleashes Hell

Raila vowed to go ahead with a "million man" protest rally Thursday that many fear could worsen the wave of political and ethnic violence that humanitarian groups say has already killed 300 people and displaced 100,000.

Opposition leader Raila Odinga called the march to protest President Mwai Kibaki's re-election in the Dec. 27 vote, insisting the disputed poll was a sham.
 

According to witnesses, the mob was mostly Kalenjins, Luhyas and Luos, the followers of Raila Odinga.  They overran Kikuyu guards in front of the church and then pulled out cans of gasoline.  There were no police officers around, witnesses said, and no water to put the fire out.

  

    

Most people escaped.  But in addition to those killed, dozens were hospitalized with severe burns.  Witnesses said most of the people hiding inside had been women and children.
 

The Eldoret area has become a killing zone.  Residents say dozens of Kikuyus have been hacked to death, including four who were beheaded on Monday.

  

    
On one main road, police fired tear gas and water cannons to push back a crowd of several hundred people from the Kibera slum holding branches and white flags. One of them, 22-year-old Edward Muli, said: "Without Raila there will be no peace."

The rally, Odinga said, aimed to "to communicate to our people, to inform them where we are coming from, where we are and where we want to go."

Obama's Proud
Obama "Proud" of Militant Muslim Brother
February 27, 2008

Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) is proud of his brother, Abongo ‘Roy’ Obama, who converted to Islam from Christianity.  Sounds innocent enough if you read the Examiner.com article about Obama’s ties to his African family and their mixed religious backgrounds.

Here’s what the Examiner (D.C.) reported on Jan. 29, 2007 about Obama’s affection for brother, Roy:

“‘The person who made me proudest of all,’ Obama wrote, ‘was Roy.  Actually, now we call him Abongo, his Luo name, for two years ago he decided to reassert his African heritage. "He converted to Islam, and has sworn off pork and tobacco and alcohol.’”

Now, piece that together with a Jan. 15, 2008 report from Investor’s Business Daily (that appears nearly a year after the Examiner.com article) which introduces us to the real Roy, and you’ll see why there’s reason to question Obama’s brotherly love for his militant Muslim brother.

Obama has close family ties to Kenya, and even founded a school in his ancestral village -- the Senator Obama School.

In the bloody conflict there, which already has claimed some 700 lives, Obama appears to have sided with opposition leader Raila Odinga, head of the same Luo tribe to which Obama’s late Muslim father belonged.

Obama’s older brother still lives there. Abongo ‘Roy’ Obama is a Luo activist and a militant Muslim who argues that the black man must ‘liberate himself from the poisoning influences of European culture.’ He urges his younger brother to embrace his African heritage.

Beyond family politics, these ties have potential foreign policy, even national security, implications.

The story remains untold to what extent Obama is committed to embracing his African heritage and supporting the militant activities of his brother, Roy, or the anti-Christian declarations of Raila Odinga, who claims to be his cousin.  I think we already have a good idea about the leanings of his wife, Michelle, as evidenced by her tolerance for "white oppressors."
Not A Dime
In December, Obama, speaking about his ability to handle international affairs, said, "If, as president, I travel to a poor country to talk to leaders there, they will know I have a grandmother in a small village in Africa without running water, devastated by malaria and AIDS."

"What that allows me to do is talk honestly not only about our need to help them, but about poor countries' obligation to help themselves.  There are cousins of mine in Kenya who can't get a job without paying an exorbitant bribe (it's called baksheesh) to some midlevel functionary.  I can talk about that."

What Obama is less likely you tell you is that his step-grandmother, Sarah Hussein Obama, is a lifelong Muslim. "I am a strong believer of the Islamic faith." she says.


Obama in dashiki


Talk, talk, talk ... one would think that Obama, a wealthy and powerful man, would have done something to directly help his poor relatives.  He hasn't -- not a dime.

Obama '08 -- Kenyan Style
This picture comes not from Wisconsin, Hawaii, Ohio, Texas, or any of the states with upcoming primary contests.  Rather, this image comes from President Bush's February, 2008, trip to Africa, where the race to succeed him has also created quite a bit of excitement.

 

      

Those Aren't Episcopalians
Residents of a remote Kenyan town plan to demonstrate on Friday, after a photo of U.S. presidential hopeful Barack Obama in Somali dress took centre stage in an increasingly acrimonious race for the White House.

The picture, which appeared on a U.S. Web site, showed the Illinois senator donning a Muslim elder's headdress and robes during a 2006 trip to Wajir in northeastern Kenya.

Ahmed Sheikh Bahalow, a retired teacher and elder from ethnically (read Muslim) Somali Wajir, said his community was offended by the insinuation Obama had done anything wrong on his visit.

"The Somali community and in particular those living in Kenya have never been that interested in America politics," Bahalow told Reuters in the central town of Isiolo. "But we are following it keenly now because we have been provoked."

Wajir residents planned to demonstrate in the town after Friday prayers to show their support for Obama, he said.

Those aren't Episcopalians praying on Friday evening.
Obama Meddles
As Obama's campaign entered March 2008, Obama continued to support Kenya's Raila Odinga, his first cousin, even as Odinga continued with his attempts to overthrow the current government of Kenya, and replace it with a terror-supporting dictatorship.

Odinga's father, Jaramogi Ajuma Oginga Odinga, was a hardcore Marxist-Leninist revolutionary (see this article) who attempted to topple the government of Kenya on behalf of the Soviets and the Red Chinese.

Raila Odinga, Jaramogi Odinga's son -- and Barack Obama's first cousin, via Barack Senior's sister -- received his education in Soviet East Germany.  He named his son after Fidel Castro -- and by all available evidence, is following in his father's Communist footsteps.

Here is the "Memorandum of Understanding" between the Marxist, Hon. Raila Amolo Odinga, representing the Otange Democratic Movement (ODM) and the Islamist, National Muslim Leaders Forum (NAMLEF).

The document is dated 08/29/2007.  In this document, Raila Odinga (Candidate) states the following:

"... recognizes Islam as the only true religion ..."

And, the National Muslim Leaders, who "... recognize The Candidate who has the interests of the Kenyan Muslim community at heart."

The document describes the contract between Odinga and the Muslims to convert democratic Kenya into an Islamic state.
Odinga And Al Qaeda
In April, 2008, oil industry sources said that one of the things that helped Raila make a quick buck in the oil business was a concessionary petroleum deal he struck with the Al Bakri Group where he was incorporated as a silent partner in the local arm of Al Bakri  International.

Abdulkader Al Bakri listed as a defendant in the First Amendment Complaint suit brought by various insurance companies against al Qaeda and associated organizations and individuals.  Within that suit is mentioned documents (known as the Golden Chain document) picked up by Bosnian police on a raid on a charitable front organization for al Qaeda in Sarajevo.  One of the listed documents is the "Tareekh Osama" ("Osama’s History") in which Abdulkader al Bakri aka Abdel Qader Bakri gets a prominent listing.

So, when a man like Raila Odinga is linked with Abdulkader al Bakri, you are not making a minor connection, but one directly into al Qaeda.

Such are the vagaries of making political bedfellows in other Nations...
Odinga Gets Left In The Lurch
And Obama throws one more under the "Change Bus"  as he is absent from the list of dignitaries with whom Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Odinga, Obama's Marxist cousin, is scheduled to confer during his June 2008 visit to Washington.
Obama Breaks Promise To African Village
In his father's village of Kogelo, near the Equator in western Kenya, there is concealed a troubling reality that, until July, 2008, had never been spoken about.  Barack Obama, the Evening Standard can reveal, after we went to the village earlier this month, has failed to honour the pledges of assistance that he made to a school named in his honour when he visited here amid great fanfare two years ago.

At that historic homecoming in August 2006 Obama was greeted as a hero with thousands lining the dirt streets of Kogelo.  He visited the Senator Obama Kogelo Secondary School built on land donated by his paternal grandfather.  After addressing the pupils, a third of whom are orphans, and dancing with them as they sang songs in his honour, he was shown a school with four dilapidated classrooms that lacked even basic resources such as water, sanitation and electricity.

He told the assembled press, local politicians (who included current Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Odinga), and students: "Hopefully I can provide some assistance in the future to this school and all that it can be."  He then turned to the school's principal, Yuanita Obiero, and assured her and her teachers: "I know you are working very hard and struggling to bring up this school, but I have said I will assist the school and I will do so."

Obiero says that although Obama did not explicitly use the word "financial" to qualify the nature of the assistance he was offering, "there was no doubt among us [teachers] that is what he meant.  We interpreted his words as meaning he would help fund the school, either personally or by raising sponsors or both, in order to give our school desperately-needed modern facilities and a facelift."  She added that 10 of the school's 144 pupils are Obama's relatives.  Obiero was not the only one to think that the US Senator from Illinois, who had recently acquired a $1.65 million house in Chicago, would cough up.  Obama's own grandmother Sarah confidently told reporters before his visit: "When he comes down here, he will change the face of the school and, believe me, our poverty in Kogelo will be a thing of the past."

But the Evening Standard has heard that the promises he made to help the school as well as a local orphanage appear to have been empty.

The letter Obiero refers to -- dated 22 June 2005, signed by Obama and addressed to her -- was written after his election to the US Senate in 2004 and hangs, framed, on the wall of her spartan office alongside photographs of Obama's visit to their school.  It says: "I am honoured that you have decided to rename the Kogelo School in my name.

The land that the school is built on was donated by my grandparents and I am proud to carry on the tradition of supporting the school."

Obiero and her board of governors followed up his letter offering " support" with a bald, formal request for funds in the form of a nine-page proposal, a copy of which has been provided to the Evening Standard, laying out their ambitions for the school.  In it they ask for 8.2 million Kenyan shillings (approximately £65,000) to upgrade the school.  The money would be used, they say, to bring water to the school by sinking a borehole and building a water tank, erect a perimeter fence, complete the science laboratory and add much needed new classrooms, additional latrines, and a school dining hall.

Obiero recalls: "When the US Ambassador William Bellamy came to visit the school for the official renaming ceremony in February 2006, we gave him two copies of the proposal, one for the Embassy and one to give to Senator Obama.  But we have not heard anything from either of them since."

Recently, she adds, she gave another copy of the proposal to Obama's Kenyan half-sister, Auma Obama, who recently returned to Nairobi after living in England and working in children's services in Reading.  Auma had been married to a British man but they are now divorced.  "Auma also promised to pass it on to her brother," says Obiero.

When we ask an Obama spokesperson in Kenya, who is also a family member, why no support has been forthcoming, he says: "We have no comment, the family are not doing any interviews at this time."
Citizen of Kenya Question Resurfaces
Just today, courtesy of the Rocky Mountain News, we confirmed that Barack aka Barry Soetoro Obama was a citizen of Kenya since 1963.  Barack has yet to stipulate when he renounced or relinquished that citizenship.  That will be a distracting issue in the upcoming campaign.

Americans don’t want to elect a Kenyan or an Indonesian as President.  It is that simple.
Taxpayer Dollars To Africa
Senator Barack Obama will partner Nigeria as a major ally of the United States on the African continent if he wins the presidential election for the White House, says his campaign.

Obama's Foreign Policy Adviser, Ambassador Wendy R. Sherman, told THISDAY that Nigeria was an important country in Africa, not only in terms of its sheer size but because of its growing economy and its influence on the continent.

"Nigeria is obviously a very important country in Africa. It has a growing economy, a large population and a democracy with some bumps on the way.  Senator Obama has spoken of the importance of Africa in terms of the growing world economy... the importance of trade, African labour and failed states of which Nigeria is not."

Obama won't waste a moment to send billions of your taxpayer dollars to Africa, but he won't send a dime of his own money.

He has failed to live up to the promise of assistance that he made to a school named in his honor in his father's village of Kogelo, or
send a $10 bill to his brother George, who is living in a 4 X 6 shack on $1 per month.
Obama Is Tight With His Money
Obama hasn't been financially helpful to his poor relatives in Africa, including a brother living on $1 a month.  He also broke his promise to aid a school, named in his honor, in his father's village.
   

Barack Obama and his wife Michelle contributed $10,772 of the $1.2 million they earned from 2000 through 2004 to charities, or less than 1 percent, according to tax returns for those years released today by his campaign.
   

The Obamas increased the amount they gave to charity when their income rose in 2005 and 2006 after the Illinois senator published a bestselling book. The $137,622 they gave over those two years amounted to more than 5 percent of their $2.6 million income.
  

Here are the charitable gist from the Obamas tax returns (large .pdf).  These numbers include monies contributed to their racist church.  The Trinity United Church of Christ received $27,500 in 2005 and 2006.

Their biggest gift in 2005 and 2006 combined was $31,000 to Atlanta-based CARE, an organization fighting global poverty.

The Obamas also gave $13,107 to the Congressional Black Caucus in 2006 as well as $5,000 to the Muntu Dance Theatre, where Michelle Obama serves on a capital campaign committee with Bob Nash, a deputy campaign manager for Clinton.



However, Obama wants to send $845 billion of your tax dollars to third-world hellholes via his Global Poverty Act.

Corsi Detained In Africa
A leading American neo-conservative author has been detained by immigration authorities in Kenya as he tried to launch a book smearing Barack Obama.

Jerome Corsi, of Swift Boat Veterans for Truth fame, was this morning being held after failing to reckon with Obamamania.

He had been planning to launch his book, entitled The Obama Nation Leftist Politics and the Cult of Personality, before travelling to one of Nairobi's slums to donate money to the Senator's half-brother George, who was found living in squalid conditions two months ago.

On October 6th, 2008, officers swooped in hours after Dr. Corsi was described as "author of a smear crusade" by local newspapers.

Journalists were turned away from the hotel suite where the launch was due to be held.  "He shouldn't have had anything in the paper this morning," said one.  "That was his mistake.  He should have kept it secret."

Obama's Democratic operatives in the Missouri government tried this with less success.  Kenyans don't have a 1st Amendment -- we may not have one either if Obama is successful in his campaign for POTUS.
He's Jesus
One Kenyan shouted, "This man is Jesus," spilling his Guinness as Obama began his inaugural address.  "When will he come to Kenya to save us?"  If Obama’s spin doctors have been trying to lower expectations since his election victory, the message clearly has not reached the land of his father…

"Now he is president we will get food and jobs," said Ben Ochieng, as he danced to the traditional music that replaced the planned show…

"It is right that when people get power they look after their family, so we know that Obama will build lots of good things for us, like schools and roads and clinics," said George Opiyo.
Obama To Visit Africa In July
Obama will visit Africa for the first time since being sworn in as the first black U.S. leader when he travels to Ghana in July, 2009, a trip many Africans hope will herald powerful help for their poor continent.

Ghanaians celebrated Washington's decision to choose their country for Obama's debut in Africa, where he is a hugely popular figure.

They said the visit represents a chance for Ghana, which expects to start producing oil in 2011, to press its claims for greater engagement with the West.

Ghana, a gold and cocoa exporting country whose economy is struggling with inflation of more than 20 percent and a high budget deficit, is in talks with the International Monetary Fund to secure $1 billion to boost its foreign exchange reserves.

"During his visit, Obama will hold bilateral talks with his Ghanaian counterpart, President John Evans Atta Mills, aimed at strengthening the fraternal relations existing between the two countries," the foreign ministry said in a statement.

Many Africans had hoped Obama's inauguration would mark the start of a new U.S. push to alleviate the poverty, hunger, conflict and corruption that blight much of the continent, but Obama's first four months in power have been dominated by the financial crisis at home.

Obama will also visit Cape Coast, a former slave trading hub in Ghana.
Obama’s Kenyan, Anti-Colonial Worldview
Newt Gingrich cited a recent Forbes article by Dinesh D’Souza, former House speaker Newt Gingrich tells National Review Online that Obama may follow a "Kenyan, anti-colonial" worldview.

Gingrich says that D’Souza has made a "stunning insight" into Obama’s behavior -- the "most profound insight I have read in the last six years about Barack Obama."

"What if [Obama] is so outside our comprehension, that only if you understand Kenyan, anti-colonial behavior, can you begin to piece together [his actions]?" Gingrich asks.  "That is the most accurate, predictive model for his behavior."

"This is a person who is fundamentally out of touch with how the world works, who happened to have played a wonderful con, as a result of which he is now president," Gingrich tells us.

"I think he worked very hard at being a person who is normal, reasonable, moderate, bipartisan, transparent, accommodating -- none of which was true," Gingrich continues.  "In the Alinksy tradition, he was being the person he needed to be in order to achieve the position he needed to achieve... He was authentically dishonest."

"[Obama] is in the great tradition of Edison, Ford, the Wright Brothers, Bill Gates -- he saw his opportunity and he took it," Gingrich says.  Will Gingrich take it back in 2012?  "The American people may take it back, in which case I may or may not be the recipient of that, but I have zero doubt that the American people will take it back.  Unlike Ford, the Wright Brothers, et cetera, this guy’s invention did not work."

"I think Obama gets up every morning with a worldview that is fundamentally wrong about reality," Gingrich says.  "If you look at the continuous denial of reality, there has got to be a point where someone stands up and says that this is just factually insane."
Avoiding The Next Obama
L.E. Ikenga says that in times like these, it is tempting to focus only on the issue at hand.  But if you do, you do so at your own peril.  As I watch what is happening to this great country, I find myself just shaking my head more and more while thinking, Mark Twain was absolutely right: "history does not always repeat itself, but it does often rhyme."

My Igbo parents came to this great country from Nigeria.  They arrived a few years after Nigeria's independence from Great Britain.  In Nigeria, it was a time of unprecedented cultural and political turmoil, which allowed politicians very much like Barack Obama to continue to seep into Nigeria's political system.  These politicians all promised a change from the past.  And unfortunately, they ended up fulfilling their promises.  What these politicians ended up changing was the very fabric of the African societies, which they had been taught to see as unsophisticated and inferior.

I call these men, who appeared all over Africa in the wake of independence, African Colonial politicians (ACP's).  They were the direct offspring of the European Imperialists, imposing radical European leftist political theory on tribal cultures.  ACP's and their unscrupulous followers were able to almost completely destroy many African cultures.

For the most part, these ACP's were intellectual frauds, completely unworthy of the honors bestowed upon them.  But they sounded and looked good; so the people listened to them.  With their fancy Oxbridge degrees, grandiloquent speeches given with perfectly accented "Queen's English", finely tailored European suits, and fabled family histories, ACP's took the masses by storm.

ACP's convinced their constituents that they were as dumb as baboons and did not have what it took to make good decisions for themselves and for the future.  They made Africans feel embarrassed about their entire histories and conservative values.  They persuaded Africans to follow the "European way" of doing things, and assured that this blueprint for progress was one that could not fail.

The people believed them.  And so, over the course of many decades, and by means of the standard instruments of cultural indoctrination that included liberal education, elite professional career paths, and new religious and political paradigms, Africans began to consume ideas and theories that implicitly alienated them from their own roots.  Today, many of those Africans and their respective cultures are well on their way to being nothing more than topics for discussion at some freshman anthropology seminar at some elite university.

Colonialism in Africa ended but the ACP remained.  He is now a touchstone in African political culture -- and so are his imperialist policies.  The ACP will never go away.  He dominates all politics, all of the time.  His presence is ubiquitous.  He is being cloned by the thousands everyday at universities in Africa and in other parts of the world.  Marxist mentors rear him in his professional and private life.  Thus, he has been taught to see himself as a benevolent Pan-Africanist.  Instead, he is an uncontrollable cancer, steadily pushing African cultures to the point of extinction.

This all happened because African conservatives lost their way, took their cultures for granted, and underestimated the cupidity of their wanton politicians.  They failed to make adjustments that would have helped to preserve their necessary values.  The challenge for any culture is knowing when and how to make these adjustments, because if you do not, you die.

Obama's Cousin Orders Arrest Of Homosexuals
Barack Obama's first cousin, Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Odinga, has ordered a nationwide crackdown on homosexuals in Kenya.

On Sunday, Odinga said that police should arrest anyone found engaging in such behaviors and take appropriate legal action against them.

"We will not tolerate such behaviors in the country.  The constitution is very clear on this issue and men or women found engaging in homosexuality will not be spared," Odinga said.

"Any man found engaging in sexual activities with another man should be arrested.  Even women found engaging in sexual activities will be arrested," the premier warned.

Speaking at a public rally at the Kamukunji grounds in his Nairobi’s Kibera constituency on Sunday afternoon, the Prime Minister cited the recent population census results which put the ratio of men to women equal and wondered why people should engage in homosexuality.

"This [homosexual] kind of behaviors will not be tolerated in this country.  Men or women found engaging in those acts deserve to be arrested and will be arrested," he told the crowd.

He said leaders who were propagating rumors of same sex marriages in Kenya during campaigns for the new Constitution had failed miserably because Kenyans did not buy their propaganda.

"Those were lies from leaders who wanted to confuse Kenyans to reject the new law; the Constitution is very clear on that matter.  It does not state anywhere that same sex marriage is legal in Kenya," he added.

The Bill of Rights under chapter four of the new Constitution states that: "Every adult has the right to marry a person of the opposite sex, based on the free consent of the parties."

A move by Uganda to introduce a Bill calling for long jail terms or death penalty in some cases of homosexuality received international condemnation, with cousin Barack Obama describing it as "odious."

He said: "But surely we can agree that it is unconscionable to target gays and lesbians for who they are, whether it is here in the United States or... more extremely, in odious laws that are being proposed more recently in Uganda."

But notwithstanding Obama’s remarks, homosexual acts are now illegal in Uganda and attracts jail terms of up to 14 years in prison.
