The only thing we KNOW about Barack Hussein Obama II is we don't KNOW a damned thing about him, and dozens of "responsible" sources have claimed Barack Obama is Kenyan, including Barack Obama's literary agent and his wife Michelle . . .
The Associated Press (AP) declared that "Kenyan-born US Senate hopeful, Barrack Obama, appeared set to take over the Illinois Senate seat after his main rival, Jack Ryan, dropped out of the race on Friday night amid a furor over lurid sex club allegations."
The Kenya Standard -- "It seems Barack Hussein Obama, President of the United States of America (via a sleepy village in Kenya called Nyang’oma K’Ogelo) can do no wrong."
The Nigerian Observer -- "Americans will today go to the polls to elect their next President with Democratic Party candidate, Senator Barack Obama largely favoured to win. The Kenyan-born Senator will..." (another exhibit)
USAfrica -- "Kenyan-born OBAMA makes history...wins presidential nomination of U. S. Democratic party; eyes on White House..."
Newspage Weekly -- "The Kenya-born senator, who is being considered by some of his admirers as the "New Kennedy"..."
AllAfrica.com -- " Little wonder then why Kenyan-born Barack Obama, America's first Black President..."
GraphicGhana.com -- "For Ghana, Obama's visit will be a celebration of another milestone in African history as it hosts the first-ever African-American President on this presidential visit to the continent of his birth."
And The Ghana Times -- "So far, the odds favour the once underdog in American politics, Obama, the African-American Senator from Illinois state. A Congressional Quarterly (CQ) politics monitored on BBC put the Kenyan born American ahead of his rival, John McCain."
PlanUSA -- "More than 50 schools in Kisumu, Kenya, about 30 miles from where Obama was born and where his grandmother still lives..."
The Kenya Information and Tourism Worldguides website is running a piece about Kisumu in Kenya that identifies the town as the birthplace of Barack Obama. -- Note: within 24 hours of this posting, Team Obama had the website scrubbed. See here for more information.
Obama's literary agency, Acton & Dystel, touted Obama as "born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii."
Then there's the Chicago Sun-Times article from September 3, 2006 by Lynn Sweet -- "Obama's next big international journey will be in 2007. He says he's looking at China, India and Indonesia, 'where ironically I actually have more of a childhood than I do in Kenya.'''
The point here is that there are plenty of reasons to question who and what Barack Obama is.
Then there's the oft cited AP report of the debate, between Obama and Keyes in 2004, in which Keyes faulted Obama for not being a "natural born" citizen, and in which Obama, by his quick retort, "So what? I am running for Illinois Senator, not the presidency."
Obama admits he was, "at birth," a Kenyan citizen and a subject of Great Britain. He has proffered a book, a phony birth document and some old newspaper clippings as documentation that he's eligible to serve as POTUS.
Obama continues to fight the release of his bona fides with millions and both federal and private attorneys, arrogantly assuming that the American People will just sit there with their mouths shut while this guy shreds the U. S. Constitution.
To top it all off, the Democratic National Committee filed fraudulent "Official Certification of Nomination" papers for Barack Obama and Joe Biden in 49 of the 50 states.
The legacy media has completely abandoned its responsibility as the government's watchdog, has become political, and is functioning as an Obama propaganda outlet. Don't expect them to ask any embarrassing questions.
Obama's Family Says He's Kenyan
Here's Obama's wife -- at 42 seconds in this video, Michelle clearly says: "When we took our trip to Africa and visited his home country, in Kenya..." -- not his ancestral home -- not his father's home country -- "...HIS home country, in Kenya..." -- Here is the definition of "home country."
And during a fundraiser in Tampa in December 2007, wife, Michelle, in this video, discussed how hard it was for her and her husband to pay off student loans from "good schools," Michelle Obama said the following:
"What it reminded me of was our trip to Africa, two years ago, and the level of excitement that we felt in that country -- the hope that people saw just in the sheer presence of somebody like Barack Obama -- a Kenyan, a black man, a man of great statesmanship who they believe could change the fate of the world."
Then there's Mama Sarah, Obama's step-grandmother. She said Obama was born in Kenya (twice), and she was there. Here's two videos of Mama Sarah making her claim.
Jerome Corsi says the controversy over the above tapes centers on the interpreter present in Kenya during the interview. At the end of the tape, the interpreter can be clearly heard interjecting repeatedly that the grandmother said Obama was born in Hawaii.
However, two members of Sarah Obama’s Luo tribe who are fluent in the local Luo dialect, Swahili and English told WND that after carefully listening to the tape, they believe she declared Barack Obama Jr. was born in Mombasa, Kenya, and that she was present at the birth.
One of Kenyans who listened to the tape for WND has known Sarah Obama personally over many years. He has met with her repeatedly in her home village. The other Kenyan who listened to the tape for WND holds a respected position in the Kenyan government.
The WND source who knows Sara reported: “I have keenly and attentively listened to the tape over and over again, and I can confirm from Sarah’s own confession that Barack Obama was born in Kenya in her presence.”
He continued: “She was asked of his actual birthplace, and she affirmed she was actually there, present in person at his birth.”
He said that while the people in the room with Sarah Obama “tried as much as they could to change the tone of the whole story… to me it seems someone is coaching her from the background and seemingly trying to guide her on what to say.”
“I have listened to the tape,” he said. “The preacher asked whether Barack Obama was born in Mombasa and the translator asked the same. When she said Mombasa, it was like a surprise and those there thought she could not have meant to say Mombasa.”
The source said that at that point “they began insisting Hawaii was where Barack Obama was born.”
Sarah Obama can be heard uttering “Mombasa” in response to McRae’s questions about where Obama was born.
Kenyan Officials Describe Obama As Kenyan
Ok, ok, none of the above are "official" sources -- but this one is:
The following transcript is of an April 14, 2010 debate on the floor of the Kenyan National Assembly. The question under discussion concerns the repatriation of Kenyan artifacts which were removed from the country by colonialists. The Ministers want to know what is being done to return the artifacts, or failing their return, how and when Kenya will be compensated for their loss. They argue that museums in the US and elsewhere have earned money on these artifacts, thus those countries are indebted to Kenya. Importantly, in 2006, when Barack Obama visited Kenya, strategized with, and campaigned on behalf of Raila Odinga, the Senator also promised to help with the return of artifacts to Kenya or to seek financial compensation.
The question Dr. Bonny Khalwale asked concerns the "repatriation" of Barack Obama!
Quote -- bottom of page 8: "Dr. Khalwale: Mr. Speaker, Sir, the Minister has told us that the office of the then Senator Obama gave him a lot of assistance. That is very good to hear. Could he tell us what commitment the same office made by way of compensation to this country because those artifacts in those museums have been attracting visitors who were paying to view them? What commitment did they make about compensation and more importantly, the biggest artifact in the USA today that belongs to this country is one Barrack Obama. How does he intend to repatriate himself or part of the money that is realized from all the royalties that he is attracting across the whole world?"
That's the fifth Kenyan official to claim Kenya as Obama's homeland. Obama's wife Michelle, and grandmother Sarah said the same thing -- as did more than a dozen responsible new sources, including National Public Radio.
And this one:
A Kenya National Assembly Official Report, dated March 25, 2010. On p. 31, 2nd paragraph, the Minister for Lands, James Aggrey Orengo, who is a member of the Kenyan Parliament identifies Obama’s birthplace as Kenya -- and that he is "not even a native American."
During debate over the draft of a new Kenyan constitution, James Orengo, the country's minister of lands and a member of parliament for the Ugenya constituency, cited America's election of a Kenyan-born president as an example of what can be accomplished when diverse peoples unite:
"If America was living in a situation where they feared ethnicity and did not see itself as a multiparty state or nation," Orengo posited, "how could a young man born here in Kenya, who is not even a native American, become the president of America?"
Orengo held up the U.S. as a country no longer "living in the past," since Americans elected a Kenyan-born president without regard to "ethnic consideration and objectives."
This is the third Kenyan government source alleging Obama's Kenyan birth
And this one:
The Kenyan National Assembly, Official Report, Wednesday, 5th November, 2008 -- "Dr. Khalwale: On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker, Sir. You have heard none other than the Leader of Government Business acknowledge that because of Obama's win in the United States of America (USA), the House is crippled. Could we allow him to move a Motion for Adjournment so we could also continue the celebrations of having a Kenyan ruling the USA? I humbly request."
Dr. Khalwale wasn't alone. Ms. Odhiambo chimed in.
Ms. Odhiambo: Mr. Deputy Speaker, Sir, the President-elect, Mr. Obama, is a son of the soil of this country. Every other country in this continent is celebrating the Obama win. It is only proper and fitting that the country which he originates from should show the same excitement, pomp and colour. I, therefore, seek leave of the House that we adjourn to discuss the issue.
And this one too . . .
Olara Otunnu (Harvard Law, 1978) relating the remark of Kenyan historian Ali Mazrui on the oddity that a member of Kenya's Luo tribe (Barack Obama, a Kenyan citizen and Luo tribe member from birth) may become president of the United States before a Luo tribe member becomes president of Kenya. "Town Hall Forum: An Examination of Race, Age, Gender & Religion in the 2008 Election," Harvard Law School Reunions, Oct. 25, 2008, 9:15 a.m. (Austin Hall, 1st Floor, West), at 60:17 mark.
Then there's the recording of the Kenyan Ambassador saying Obama was born in Kenya on the "Mike In The Morning" show on WRIF radio, in Detroit.
For 17 Years, Obama's Literary Agent Claimed Obama Was Kenyan
Breitbart News has obtained a promotional booklet produced in 1991 by Barack Obama's then-literary agency, Acton & Dystel, which touts Obama as "born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii."
The booklet, which was distributed to "business colleagues" in the publishing industry, includes a brief biography of Obama among the biographies of eighty-nine other authors represented by Acton & Dystel.
It also promotes Obama's anticipated first book, Journeys in Black and White--which Obama abandoned, later publishing Dreams from My Father instead.
Here is a copy of Obama’s 1991 biography from the booklet. And here is a 2003 version:
The Obama apologists say it was an "editing error" -- three different documents (and there could be more) over 17 years -- an "editing error."
Team Obama really does believe you are stupid.
Kenyans Honor Obama's "Birthplace"
Jerome Corsi says An internal bulletin from the Kenyan National Security Intelligence Service, or NSIS, states that the Kenyan government in 2009 commissioned a cultural museum in the Obama home village of Kogelo to honor the "birthplace of President Barack Obama" and rededicate the tomb of his father, Barack Obama Sr.
The ministry of national heritage this month hosted a cultural festival in Kogelo and commissioned a cultural museum on a plot donated by a member of the Kogelo community. The cultural festival was attended by the minister for national heritage, William ole Ntimama and U.S. ambassador, Michael Ranneberger.
This was to honor the birthplace of President Obama and re-dedicate the tomb of Barack Hussein Obama, Sr., the president's late father. But the project had been delayed because of ownership wrangles surrounding the plot.
According to an article in the Kenyan Daily Nation newspaper July 5, 2010, the Kenyan government's plans to build a 112 million Kenyan Schilling ($1.3 million) cultural center at Kogelo was locked in a dispute over who should donate land to the government for the project.
The Daily Nation published an artist's sketch of the proposed Kogelo cultural center. They referred to it as Obama's "ancestral home."
Artist's sketch of proposed cultural center to honor Obama's ancestral home
The NSIS memo suggests the Kenyan intelligence agency kept a close watch on the Obama family in Africa.
It noted the Kenyan government provided assistance to Obama's step-grandmother, Sarah Hussein Obama, in the form of additional security and a government stipend of 50,000 Kenyan Schillings ($575) per month.
One more source of the "rumor" that Barack Obama was born in Kenya -- Kenyan National Security Intelligence Service -- you'd think they know.
Kenyan Intelligence Service Says Documents Were Removed
CDR Charles Kerchner points out an interesting tidbit from "Dreams...," Obama's mom planned to "return to Kenya" with Obama and his father -- to return to somewhere, you had to have been there first.
In Obama's biographical book Dreams from My Father, on page 126 (click page number), Obama tells the account of Obama's mom telling him that some day it was intended that all three of them were to "return to Kenya", i.e., his father, mother, and Obama. Therefore to return somewhere you must have been there first. Thus all three of them were there before, i.e., when Obama was born.
See the quote on page 126 of Obama's book Dream from My Father, in this image:
"Her chin began to tremble, and she bit down on hr lip, steadying herself. She said, Your father wrote back, saying he was going ahead with it. Then you were born, and we agreed that the three of us would return to Kenya after he finished his studies."
Taken by itself, "...the three of us would return to Kenya...," is not sufficient evidence to close the case on the "born in Kenya" theory. However, the shear accumulation of all the evidence seen as a whole makes a compelling argument that Obama was born in Kenya. From Michelle Obama who said that Kenya is Barack's "home country," to the Kenyan Minister of Lands Orengo, who said explicitly that Obama was born in Kenya.
And as we know from prior readings in Obama's automythology, "Dreams...," page 26, he had in his possession a copy of his birth certificate, along with his vaccination records.
Even Yahoo! News
Here is the article the Yahoo clip came from. If it's on Yahoo! News, it must be true!
And This From India
Reporting from India, Jake Tapper says there was an odd little moment with Spice Jet founder Bhupendra Kansagra, when Obama spoke to CEOs Saturday in Mumbai.
MR. KANSAGRA: Thank you. Welcome, Mr. President, to India. As a fellow Kenyan, I’m very proud to see that you have made...
OBAMA: Made something of myself. (Laughter.)
MR. KANSAGRA: ...India as the focus of your drive for exports out of the U.S.
With no evidence, one way or the other, Tapper adds this editorial comment, "Obviously the president is not a Kenyan. One supposes Mr. Kansagra meant 'of Kenyan ancestry' or something."
