The Central Jakarta administration will move the controversial "Little Barry" statue from its current location at Taman Menteng in Central Jakarta to state elementary school SDN 01 Menteng next week, an official says.
"We are currently discussing with officials from the school and its alumni association," city spokesman Cucu Ahmad Kurnia told reporters Friday. "We hope the move will happen next week."
US President Barack Obama attended the elementary school for almost two years when he spent part of his childhood in Jakarta.
Erected by the Jakarta-based Friends of Obama Foundation in December last year, the statue, which resembles Obama as a boy, recently sparked wide public criticism for insulting the nation's pride.
Just a few days after the Central Jakarta municipality unveiled the statue at Menteng Park, experts and a group of Facebook users demanded it be dismantled.
On Wednesday, the Central Jakarta District Court held a hearing to try a class action lawsuit by five plaintiffs representing 50,000 members of the "Take down the Barack Obama statue from Menteng Park" group on Facebook.
The five plaintiffs - Heru Nugroho, Protus Tanuhandaru, Daniel Rudi Haryanto, Andes Soesman and FX Agung Bimo Sutedjo - filed the suit against Jakarta governor, Central Jakarta mayor and the Jakarta Parks and Cemeteries Agency, saying the statue didn't deserve a place at the park and should be immediately removed.
Although appreciating the administration's plan to remove the statue, Heru said the group would go ahead with its lawsuit.
"We will only withdraw the lawsuit if the city administration publicly apologizes for its one-sided decision to permit the statue," he told The Jakarta Post.
Hawaiian-born Obama moved to Indonesia at the age of six to live with his mother, Ann Dunham, and Indonesian stepfather Lolo Soetoro.
Obama attended third grade at the school in 1968. He returned to Hawaii at the age of 10 to live with his maternal grandparents.
Also from the link in 54:
At that time Ann explained to Obama that his father had to go and live apart. Scholarships are not sufficient if they come, but Junior said Obama, racism from two-family marriages destroy his father and mother. In his book, Obama said his mother, Ann, who was called Tut, did not want black-law, while Obama's grandfather in Kenya do not want white law.
well according to this video the grant for Annenberg Project was 49.2 million dollars, surely ALL of it didn’t go to improve Chicago schools
I have frequently wondered if both he and Geitner come from established CIA families — everything makes so much more logical sense if he’s simply a generation spy who grew up having a dozen different identiites. LOL
Thanks, expatguy. I hope you ping LucyT and Fred Nerks. I want to see everything you find.
Stanley Ann coming back to the United states has to be tied to the theory by techdude that Maya’s BC was used to create Obama’s BC.
And then Lame Cherry had his own ideas.
As noted before, Barack Obama’s sister, Maya, has 2 online registered birth months of August and September. This would point to Ann Dunham having had Maya out of the country, too and in a few weeks hauled her back to Hawaii for a late registration too to be an American.
I was hoping you would be around to add some insight. Please keep us informed as you have the chance. Many thanks.
More like an established NKVD/KGB families.
More seriously (maybe) when he was a young lad in Indonesia, a time when foreigners were very unwelcome, the Lolo family told everyone he was from Irian Jaya to explane away his curly hair.
He’s spent his whole life pretending to be what he’s not.
Geeesh, it must be boring for Michelle & Barack to lurk on this site to learn what nomal Americans are thinking and chatting about.
Anyway, that's why lots of people claim that Mossad REALLY has all the "goods" on BHO, but of course will never reveal them.
Love this quote from Lame Cherry:
I actually requested a reporter babe to check into this concerning the hospitals in Hawaii weeks ago as I asked her, “Just why is everyone taking a Democratic state’s word, a Democratic employee’s word for a Democratic candidate?”
Posted 7-25-08. Here we are, nearly 19 months later . . .
I'm not sure that I can digest anymore irregularities with the Soetoro family, it's just mindboggling.
Stanley Ann for sure had a difficult delivery with at least one child with the big head he has.
Here we are 19 months later. The signs were all there, the stories about Obama’s radical friends and past, his admitting he was a british citzen after he knew it would be found out.
We never believed we would see the corruption that it took to get Obama elected in America. At least I didn’t.
If you haven’t read lamecherry’s website, there are some great arrticles. Especially the one involving Larry Sinclair and Biden.
Can u post this please...a paper published in the East Africa Journal dated July 1965. Author is Barak H. Obama. The preface puts Barak Obama in 1965 in Nairobi working on his Doctorate. PDF format.
I wonder if that spelling "Tut" squares with other reports of "Annie Toot".
They say they only have microfilms.
a paper published in the East Africa Journal dated July 1965. Author is Barak H. Obama. The preface puts Barak Obama in 1965 in Nairobi working on his Doctorate.
That is amazing since Obama was only 4 years old.
Is this inconsistent with our previous knowledge of Barack Sr.? I thought he had gotten his Doctorate at Harvard before returning to Kenya. Apparently not.
Obviously, the co-author of the paper is Barack, Sr., the alleged biological father of Barack II. We do know that Sr. returned to Kenya after his education in the US at Hawaii, then Harvard, and spent almost all of the remainder of his life in his native country.
Beck just says that the birther movement started with a democrat Berg and can be traced back to Hillary.....
Interesting & would make sense. I have never heard the reports of “Annie Toot.” Learn something everyday.
Even though the google translations are choppy, the Indonesian sites are still a goldmine considering compared to what we have s far.
He was working on a masters at Harvard, not doctorate.
Not on a million years. I want him OUT! I even want him out of my country.
IN a million years.
Once again, wed have to see an original newsprint of that date to know.
it’s out there... :)
Don’t be so sure about that. Just wait and see. You can rest assured it will never be posted her or anywhere else. Just wait until 2011. We aren’t getting him out, forget that. He will not run again and if he does, he will not be reelected. The god evidence is in the hands of people that know what to do with it, and no, not people like Orly. Experienced, well known people who know what to to with evidence and know to keep their mouths shut while they build their cases.
The Harvard scholarship was for a Doctorate? Why not complete his studies after grad school at Harvard. Why pursue doctorate in Kenya.
So ... who is the father?
I agree with Lamecherry, except they are probably incorrect regarding the hospitals.
Frank Marshall Davis or Gramps.
There are doubts Senior graduated, Harvard has never referred to him as an alumni in any articles about Zero, which they certainly would have, had he GRADUATED.
Remember, kenya gained independence in 1963.Senior expected to be a big man in government, instead he ended up working for an oil company when he returned to Kenya and it was years before he received his first government position.
Amazingly, we suddenly learn that BHO's alleged bio dad was short - but maybe it is entirely possible for a child to take after his grandfather, primarily . . . in the same way that BHO has Stanley Dunham's ears, chin, forehead, general build, perhaps he also was tall?
It's a very interesting photo.
Malcolm was 6 ft. 3 1/2 inches.
I believe that there is NO way that the Dems will run BHO in 2012, he doesn't stand a chance of winning reelection.
I'm glad to learn that there are professional lawyers working in silence on this case, but I am shocked that NO group of American lawyers saw fit to work on this years ago, when it first became apparent that the Libbies were running an ineligible candidate. Freeper 'madashe$$' mentioned that he has contacts from back he owned a software company which many intel agencies bought stuff from, and he said that his old contacts told him that after running all over the globe for many months, suddenly all the Israeli agents which were unleashed to learn the truth on BHO have all suddenly returned home.
So in high liklihood there are other adults, elsewhere, who also know the truth.
Not suddenly. I see you are a fairly new Freeper. Most of us have known this from the beginning.
Can someone post the MX-0 photo morph?
You know that the GRANDMOTHER, i.e., Ann’s mother was known to all as either “Toot” or “Toots” — even Michelle Obama once referred to her with this nickname, and she did NOT mean Stanley Ann, her late mother in law.
There are so many hundreds of threads about the identity of BHO's TRUE father, that I've never seen that photograph before -- but that does not mean that I haven't read daily for well over a decade.... like many other freepers who never registered to post for many, many, many years.
Thanks for posting the photograph. I've never seen it before, but I am being berated as a noob and told that everyone is familiar with it. When did YOU first see this photograph, and why have you pinged people to the photo if "all old time freepers" are familiar with it?????
Well, I have no idea why I was pinged to a photo that all the other freepers know about.
Sorry to have bothered you. I'd never seen it before.
