Skip to comments.Archived articles surface, refer to “Kenyan-born Obama
Posted on 10/21/2009 5:59:33 PM PDT by Jet Jaguar
Last week, an archived article from the Sunday, June 27, 2004 edition of the East African Standard headlined: Kenyan-born Obama all set for US Senate was unearthed.
The article began, Kenyan-born US Senate hopeful, Barack 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 uncovering of this archive went viral on the Internet and could be found on blogs from coast to coast.
Another archived article surfaced last week from the Nov. 4, 2008 edition of the Nigerian Observer titled: US Presidential Polls: Obama, McCain slug it out today.
The article, by Soloman Osowata with Agency Reports, stated, The Kenyan-born Senator will, however, face stiff competition from his Republican counterpart, John McCain who has taken the presidential battle to the finishing line with vigorous campaign strategies.
More recently, the Oct. 11, 2009 edition of the Standard published an article questioning whether or not Obama deserved the Nobel Peace Prize.
The opening sentence in that article stated, It seems Barack Hussein Obama, President of the United States of America (via a sleepy village in Kenya called Nyangoma KOgelo) can do no wrong.
In light of these recent discoveries, Snopes.com has been surprisingly silent on the matter, as have other fact-checking websites. Snopes.com has aggressively debunked any and all questions about Obamas birthplace, even going so far as to change archived information when the very left-leaning couple that runs Snopes.com realized certain posts contradicted other posts on their own website.
The November 2008 edition of the Organization of American Historians (OAH) Newsletter contained an editorial by Monica-Wanambisi Mwesel, a literature professor at the University of Nairobi, titled: What Kenyans think about an Obama win.
According to its website, the OAH, founded in 1907 as the Mississippi Valley Historical Association, is the largest professional organization for the investigation, study and teaching of American History. It serves a membership of 11,000 college and university professors, high school teachers, students, archivists, public historians, and institutional subscribers such as libraries, museums, and history societies, as well as individual and institutional foreign members.
The article, obviously published before the Nov. 4, 2008 election, stated, Most Kenyans feel that, should Obama win, their lives will definitely improve Many assume that by being connected to Kenya, Obama would be empowered to send vast amounts of U.S. aid to their country. Since graft and corruption are common to both the Islamic and the Democratic parties, certainly most of this money would go to the promotion of an Islamic state and then financing the conversion of other African states to Islam. Many assume that Obama will channel resources that will go a long way in improving the lives of the people.
Mwesel mentions schools were renamed after Obama prior to his most recent visit with the hope of attracting funding, since it would be considered a shame that a school named for a great American should be so dilapidated.
She went on to say, A widespread assumption is that, being a Kenyan, Obama understands the problems Kenyans face. Hence they expect more foreign aid from him. They wonder why they should stay poor while they have a Kenyan president of the U.S.
Close to half of Kenyans, Mwesel said, dreaded the prospects of an Obama presidency and were fractured along ethnic lines, citing the Kikuyu tribe feared an Obama victory would boost the chances of Raila Odinga, a Luoccai like Obama, to ascend to the presidency.
Mwesel concluded, It is therefore very clear that Senator Obama draws frenzied support from the Luo ethnic group of his ancestors, while many members of the rival Kikuyu group do not support him.
In fact, Mwesel said the majority of the Kikuyu favored New York Senator Hillary Clinton during the Democratic primaries.
A June 2004 article from the archives of the East African Standard referred to then Senator Barack Obama as Kenyan-born, while an article published in the Oct. 11, 2009 edition refers to Obama becoming President of the United States via a sleepy village in Kenya called Nyangoma KOgelo.
This should be sent to every member of the US Congress asking them what they intend to do about this since We The People want an answer.

Kenyan Historian: It's Odd that Kenyan Luo Tribe Member (Obama) Elected President in US Before Kenya (Audio)
We already knew that Barack Obama's brother Malik was a Luo activist and a militant Muslim
who argued that the black man must "liberate himself from the poisoning influences of European culture."
Article in Nairobi Paper June 2004 - Barack born in Africa
An ongoing poll by AOL News currently shows that 58% of Americans have doubts
about Obamas citizenship. The poll was started on July 28 and continues you can go
here to vote. And lest you think that this survey is being conducted in a very anti-Obama
venue, the title of the article is Birthers, Beer and Stuck on Stupidly it is an
environment contemptuous of skeptics. So we can conclude that the results of their poll
are not what they were hoping for.
A scant five years ago, Barack Obama was a little known Illinois state politician, aspiring
to move up to the United States Senate. Undoubtedly, the Marxist handlers behind this
Manchurian candidate had long range plans to capture the US presidency since he was
groomed as a youth by Frank Marshall Davis. But the general public and the press were
not privy to this information.
At that time, there would have been no reason to fabricate a story about Obamas birth
that would disqualify him for the highest US office. This would be especially true for an
African paper that was simply proud of their native son. So it is reasonable to take the
press clippings of the day at face value. The following item has been on the web all
along, but apparently did not get much attention. It is a June 2004 article from the online
version of the East African Standard, an English-language paper published in Nairobi,
Kenya, titled Kenyan-born Obama all set for US Senate.

D.C. Tech Official Is Accused of Bribery(Birth Certificate Forgery)
A D.C. government official and a business executive were arrested yesterday on bribery
charges involving city technology contracts that included "ghost" workers and
kickbacks, federal authorities said. Until recently, the technology office was headed
by Vivek Kundra, who has taken a job as President Obama's chief information officer.
A White House official confirmed last night that Kundra has taken a leave of absence.
Yusuf Acar, 40, who has worked in the technology office since 2004, was charged with
bribery, conspiracy, money laundering and conflict of interest.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Thomas Hibarger told a federal judge that Acar is a flight risk because agents
seized $70,000 in cash in his house and because in recorded conversations, he boasted that he could easily flee to his native Turkey.
Acar also told the informant that he could use
computers to create fake D.C. birth certificates, Hibarger said.
"Security Breach May Lead To Obama Natural Born Status
A series of 2008 security breaches at the US State Department may indicate that someone knows Barack Obamas true status as a natural born citizen - and is waiting for the right time to reveal it. The breaches, which occurred on January 9, February 21 and March 14 of 2008, were done by two low level contractors and another in a mid-level position with no management role.
... An investigation of the incidents revealed that all three major presidential candidates - Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and John McCain - had their passport files compromised.
... News of the security breaches prompted a statement from then-Senator Joseph Biden, who had not yet been chosen as Obamas running mate. Biden, who was chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, had oversight of the Foreign Service and the passport office.
I am deeply troubled that State Department contract employees sought access to Sen. Barack Obamas passport files, the statement from Biden read. Firing or disciplining those responsible is an important first step. But we need to understand why these employees had access to this information in the first place, why they sought the information, and why it took over two months for this matter to come to light. I urge the Secretary of State to promptly refer this matter to the State Department Inspector General for investigation.
... On April 5, 2008, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Passport Services Ann Barrett resigned from her post after a credit card scheme using US passport date was uncovered by the security probe. State Department Spokesman Tom Casey told The Washington Times that 24-year-old Lieutenant Quarles Harris Jr. told federal authorities he obtained passport information from a co-conspirator who works for the U.S. Department of State.
From The Washington Times report:
The investigation began after Metropolitan Police on March 25 pulled over Mr. Harris in Southeast on suspicion that the windows of his vehicle were tinted too darkly.
After searching Mr. Harris and his vehicle, police found marijuana and 21 credit cards that were not issued in his name or the name of a female passenger with him. Police also found eight printouts of State Department passport applications, and four of the names on the applications matched four of the credit cards.
Upon questioning by agents from the U.S. Secret Service, U.S. Postal Service and State Department, Mr. Harris admitted he obtained the passport information from a State Department employee, court documents say.
Mr. Harris also said the fraud ring submitted credit-card applications using the names and identifying information of the persons listed on the passport applications, and that a postal service employee then would intercept the cards before they were delivered to the appropriate residences.
Then, on April 17, 2008, Lt. Harris was found fatally shot dead slumped over the steering wheel of his car in front of the Judah House Praise Baptist Church in Northeast DC."
Key Witness in Presidential Passport Tampering Case Murdered in 2008, No Arrests
On April 8, 2008, Obama confessed to having taken a trip to Pakistan in 1981. Here is what Obama said - Jake Tapper was there:
"So when I speak about having lived in Indonesia for four years, having family that is impoverished in small villages in Africa --knowing the leaders is not important -- what I know is the people...I traveled to Pakistan when I was in college -- I knew what Sunni and Shia was [sic] before I joined the Senate Foreign Relations Committee."
... Much speculation has been made about what national passport Obama used when he traveled to Pakistan in 1981.
So Obama confessed to this trip two weeks after his passport was tampered with.
.... A key witness in a federal probe into passport information stolen from the State Department was fatally shot in front of a District church, the Metropolitan Police Department said yesterday. Lt. Quarles Harris Jr., 24, who had been cooperating with a federal investigators, was found late Thursday night slumped dead inside a car, in front of the Judah House Praise Baptist Church in Northeast, said Cmdr. Michael Anzallo, head of the department's Criminal Investigations Division.
Cmdr. Anzallo said a police officer was patrolling the neighborhood when gunshots were heard, then Lt. Harris was found dead inside the vehicle, which investigators would describe only as a blue car."
"Mysterious Dead Person Connected To 2008 Elections
The Washington Times reported April 5 that contractors for the State Department had improperly accessed passport information
for presidential candidates Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton, Barack Obama and John McCain, which resulted in a series of firings that reached into the agency's top ranks."
We need to crown Kenya our 51st state and help Brother George!
When Judge Land threw out the case (and he was a Marine) then nobody cares about the Constitution anymore. Only Orly cares and she gets no respect. So, your country is toast.
They were too busy digging through Sarah and Joe’s trash to bother finding this before??
And all those RINO traitors, where were they???
I’d love to see Barack Hussein Dunham Obama Soetoro impeached and deported to Kenya, Indonesia or anywhere.
However, these articles don’t prove a thing. At best, they might warrant some follow up with the reporters who wrote the stories to find out where they got the impression that Obama was Kenyan born. I’d say the odds are about 99.8% that they would say they were mistaken and had simply assumed he was born in Kenya because his father was.
I highly doubt they will tell you they saw the secret, Kenyan birth certificate or had any other inside information about his birthplace.
Newspapers make mistakes every day.
I haven’t heard that Land was a Marine???
The Federal Courts Are Committing Treason to the Constitution per Chief Justice John Marshall
Per the great U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Marshall, the federal courts and judges are committing treason to the Constitution by not taking jurisdiction and getting to the merits in the various cases before them regarding the Article II eligibility clause question for Obama.
It is worth keeping in mind the words of U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Marshall when he wrote in Cohens v. Virginia 19 US 264 (1821):
It is most true that this Court will not take jurisdiction if it should not: but it is equally true, that it must take jurisdiction if it should. The judiciary cannot, as the legislature may, avoid a measure because it approaches the confines of the constitution. We cannot pass it by because it is doubtful. With whatever doubts, with whatever difficulties, a case may be attended, we must decide it, if it be brought before us. We have no more right to decline the exercise of jurisdiction which is given, than to usurp that which is not given. The one or the other would be treason to the constitution. Questions may occur which we would gladly avoid; but we cannot avoid them. All we can do is, to exercise our best judgment, and conscientiously to perform our duty. In doing this, on the present occasion, we find this tribunal invested with appellate jurisdiction in all cases arising under the constitution and laws of the United States. We find no exception to this grant, and we cannot insert on
If one birth announcement in one newspaper proves he is natural born, wouldn’t several Kenyan birth stories in several papers definitely prove he isn’t natural born?
When Judge Land threw out the case (and he was a Marine)
A marine?.... Really? What years did he serve?
Now one might expect the African writers to oblivious to the constitutional issue of Obama's eligibility for POTUS. But an American? It doesn't speak very highly as to her prowess in American civics.
I don’t know but I read it somewhere. Maybe someone can verify it.
I dont know but I read it somewhere.
That’s whay I’d like to see is where you read that?...... First I’ve heard of that.
I will have to search around and see if I can come up with it. I read a lot of stuff online.
Funny, I see people on TV get convicted every day for murder on less circumstantial evidence then this yet we can't even get a trial for so much more...law and order my butt
I'm not aware that Judge Land threw out the case. The last I read he will hear the case sometime in January. Do you have a source stating that he has dismissed the case?
I read that he called it frivolous and fined Orly 20K..I thought that was throwing it out.
If he is going to hear the “frivolous case”, is he granting discovery?
My Bad! I confused Atlanta Judge Land with Justice DAVID CARTER (who is the ex-marine I believe) in California who, the last I read, WILL hear the case in January, 2010.
Perhaps I confused Judge Land with Carter I thought Land was the ex-marine. Perhaps it was Carter that was the Marine like you said.
Looks like I mis-spoke, Carter is the ex-marine.
It would seem then, that he is unnatural..
Looks like I mis-spoke, Carter is the ex-marine.
I knew that but had never heard of Land being in the military much less a marine.
Glad I figured it out. If Carter is going to hear the case, then is “discovery” already granted?
the last I read, WILL hear the case in January, 2010.
That will depend upon his ruling regarding the motion to dismiss which he hasn’t ruled on yet. He held the hearing on Oct. 5 but has yet to rule on the motion.
That case would be the case Judge David Carter is handling.
Not to worry Obma’s Czars are taking care of all the birth certificate stuff..Rmember Anita Dunns husband is taking care of everything..He is the chief of the political law group at Perkins Coie, the Seattle law firm hired by the White House to defend President Obama in court cases challenging his “natural born” citizenship status in the United States and thus, his eligibility under the U.S. Constitution to be president.
That last part was taken from an article
Look who’s married to Obama’s media ‘controller’
There is a witness or witness(es) to EVERY massacre. We The People just have to find the witnesses to this treason. There are millions of us and few of them. Where’s our super spies on this one? You know, the ones that are sworn to defend this nation from our “enemies foreign and DOMESTIC?”
Thanks for the ping.
Don’t forget this FR link from last year
Since Barbara Boxer and the other RATS seem to have declared war on the CIA, the spies are doing the smart thing and staying under cover as their "superiors" (NOT!) keep trying to throw them under the bus! Sheeeesh, how do you (as Shakespeare said) "Let slip the Dogs of War" in one moment and then in the next try and muzzle them while throwing them into kennels for doing what the country asked them to do in the first place? We asked them to protect us from Bin Laden. They magnificently rose to the call of duty then the very next administration is trying to get them all fired or worse, killed by the bad guys in exposing them to identification by trial!
Thanks, LucyT. You are wonderful.
Thank you, NorwegianViking.
