Skip to comments.Barack Obama Sighting, Hawaii 1980
Posted on 11/30/2009 7:43:24 PM PST by syc1959
A friend of mine sent me this story of his time in the Marine Corps. Read through to the end, its a shocker.
What strikes me most is what he said as to where he grew up: Indonesia. He told me he wanted to be President of the US someday. I remember lightly smiling and commenting that maybe by the time he gets to be 40 or so, America will be ready for a Black man to be President and I wished him luck. We spoke of the racial tensions I saw at home while growing up and I asked him if he ever saw that overseas or since he returned back to Hawaii. I dont remember his answer, but we spoke more of his time overseas and his thoughts on life and philosophy of government. He made some strange comments to me, it was obvious he never set foot for any time in the continental United States and I told him he better realize that he is making judgments about the United States when he himself never actually lived there. I told him, Hawaii aint the United States!
He also told me something that I never forgot, for it caused me to do some other things in an effort to be nice to him and possibly a favor. We spoke of where I had been and the world as I saw it. I told him I had been to Africa , Mombassa specifically, and he said to me abruptly, I was born there. I told him he is not eligible to be president if that was true, but I remembered he said his mom was an American, so, maybe it was okay.

freerepublicers who know you well and vouch for you is good enough for me. The old timers here know their stuff and the members.
And that is telling. Where are the boooks or articles from people who knew him in Hawaii?
Other than my chance encounter, that I can only trust due to circumstance and other details to make my belief what it is, I never read of anything of anyone ever meeting him or knowing him
If that’s true about 1979, that still proves my point, that would mean he lived outside the US for the previous 16 years of his life, maybe 17 years
I wish I remembered more of the conversation. Not that it would do any good, without a recorder or video, it is just hearsay and a 30 year old memory.
But I do clearly remember him saying he was born in Mombassa because I was going to go back and visit him with pitures we took
I dont expect everyone to believe me, but I am not lying.
And I didn’t expect the article to be posted here, either! I sent it out as an e-mail to friends in the GOE, one psted in the NY GOE site, that’s how it got here
I am not done writing the story, didn’t want to release it like this, but, hey, it’s out here now.
ggordonliddy is on twitter. He could verify his son was there. He also believe Obama should show his BC.

Now I am wondering if that guy was a liar! LOL!
I do know that the blonde guy called him his Lt, the guy looked older than me, and his name that was stenciled on his trousers was LIDDY
Maybe I was PWNED!
Baraq is definitely a ghost throughout much of his life.
It's astounding that a guy who makes it to POTUS has so little history outside of his "autobiography"
I wouldnt put this story on a news program like FNC special report. This certainly couldnt be used in a court of law. I am having trouble imagining a scenario where this type of story would hurt Obama.
It has to do with the libs, dailykos and others online creating stories hoping we will run with them.
Baraq is definitely a
ghost evil spirit throughout much of his life.
You know I am a believer in positive thinking. Let's meditate and let this line be our mantra.
Thanks for speaking up on this thread, Race. I think Jim Thompson has your back, but be very careful.
All: I’ve read many, many posts from RaceBannon over many years, and there’s not a chance in the world that he is a troll.
There are a few trolls who go way back and come out of the woodwork to make trouble, but he ain’t one of them. Not a chance.
There are sooooo many "tricker" glad FReeper that immediately jumps on you to protect the usurper you met in Hawaii!!
Since you've been here so long, I'm sure it's not a surprise to you either!!!
There was that photographer who took pictures of him because she liked his looks while he was in college.
There was the drug dealers he lived with and Larry Sinclair.
Only two I can remember.
Oh Abercrombie in Hawaii knew his father and barry.
You might have been punked? /grin
Jim Thompson rocks!
I am going back to bed. A little under the weather.
The Mulatto look is justified because 0b0z0 is 50% White (mother), 44% Moslem Arab and 6% Negro (father). I read that account somewhere and it fits with the following example :
Although all Sudanese are black, the northern Moslem Sudanese are Arabs and their features are completely different from the southern Christian Sudanese who are Negros. No wonder they are always at each other's throat.
Have a good sleep. You're not the only one who feels under the weather! LOL
When I saw those photos I said to myself they are taken with different cameras, but the guy was drawing fast to call them fakes. As I said before, we have a numbers of like-minded Soetoro cool-aid drinkers who by any means will post distractions from the real deal... the...N B C, killing the messengers instead of the message!!!
That is the reason that you need to stay in bed forever!!!
Since Jim brought up that he served in the military, Howard wondered if he chose that path in life because of his dads reputation of being a tough guy. Jim replied that wasnt the case and that he actually joined the Navy to help pay for college, noting as his father was in jail during that time.
“RaceBannon, youre easily one of the most level headed and trustworthy freepers here. The story might be far out - but from you - its believable. Ill keep reading the thread to see if theres more... Thanks for sharing.”
I’ll bump that!
Maybe he goes to the tanning shop just to look more black???
Remember like Mr. Snerdley says, he has not slave blood in him, but he want to be seen and heard as full-blooded black!!!
Dr. Fukino is trying her best!!!
I would think most folks would say this child is a mulatto. No? Matter of fact, he looks more like a white child with a summer tan in this pic.
“all my pics I have from 1980 or 81 are faded shots from a 110 camera. (Remember them?)”
Remember? I lost my youth to mine. Washed out pictures of dead deer and friends and good times.
If only we had sprung for the fancy 126 cameras.
I don’t know for sure, he was a few years behind me so I never knew the guy because I was already in college on the Mainland. I think he was Class of ‘79 if I remember correctly, 3 years behind my younger sister.
The first I heard of him was when he made Harvard Law Review editor. Then I think Punahou ran some sort of article about him in the alumni magazine, and there may have been some coverage in the local papers as well.
There were not many blacks in Hawaii in those days. There was only one black student in the Academy (equivalent to high school) when I was there. Had nothing to do with discrimination by Punahou; there just weren’t many blacks and those that were were usually in the military and their kids went to public schools near base.
So black kids were a curiosity. I remember there were at the time a couple at Iolani, which was and is Punahou’s rival in terms of academics.
I would have to say there was a lot of discrimination against blacks out in the community, not necessarily because of just race but because it was obvious they were “outsiders” (if they were white, they would be “haoles” who also got a lot of discrimination).
The thing that cracks me up about Obama is his phony black accent. There was no way he would have talked like that growing up in Hawaii, and especially at Punahou, where speaking proper standard English was insisted on and kids speaking pidgin or with a pidgin accent would be looked down on.
A couple of times when he was out here in Hawaii and got interviewed before he became quite so famous, you could hear him moving in and out of the accent, so it’s all learned. He can speak “white” if he wants to.
Can we be 100% certain that he wasn't taking Oxy class(es) in HI (or elsewhere) via some "Academics Abroad" program back in 80/81?
He was (is) a "worldly" fellow traveler after-all. IF he did go to Oxy, I can see him taking (at least some) courses away from the main campus that's in So Cal.
b.t.w. Race...I appreciate your story. I, for one, believe that you never intended it to be used in a court of law, nor to "make" the State Run Media news cycle. Oh, and yeah...I can easily understand how Barry would tell so many people he ran across in his early years that he wanted to be "president" someday. His ego and narcissistic behavior alone make that very plausible.
If you had been the person posting the story here and took credit for it, I may have viewed it cautiously and carefully, but not cynically dismissing it with a sarcastic handwave.
Thanks for the ping, LucyT.
Anyone remember the Dannae Birth Certificate?
I never called her a liar but carefully prodded her that her story seemed to improbable.
two months later she cleared everything up and I still consider her a great poster.
Maybe Barry O. pigmented darker as he got older? That picture looks more like the description in the story.
Nope...I'd be interested in the stroy.
FWIW...Freepers should question each other.
she came on to the birther posts saying she had ordered and recieved a replacement COLB in 2000 but it was stamped 2007.
So we prodded her to get better information on it. I forget why she even brought it up.
Anyway, she talks to her mother about it and it turns out, at the time, Danae had taken ill.
She completely forgot that she had ordered in 2007 not 2000.
She went so far as call Hawaii and get receipts just clear things up.
Receipts showed she had ordered them in 2007 and when the COLB was sent.
She is still a good poster around here.
He, to this day, still looks much more like a mulatto (or even latino), than a black man. Of course, that makes sense though as has been pointed out and we all know...he's mostly white and 2nd'ly of Arabic descent. So, by in large, his outwardly appearance matches that of his ethnic "make-up."
Michelle slipped up a while ago (last year?) and said he was born in Kenya.
there’s a link to a radio interview on #161
Tom Fife joined FR and posted his story here:
If you were a girl, I’d kiss ya. :)
can't answer that, I'm an Australian, the word has no meaning in my experience. But could this be close?
Amen! I'm also from the "Freeper class of '98" and I can vouch for the fact that RaceBannon has always been a credible poster and a highly valued FReeper. God bless you, RB!
BTTT for a great story (even if it got released in a way you didn’t mean at the time!).
It’s time for the Usurper to get dragged out.
Even if true, it’s not enough evidence.
I have no idea where the word Mulatto came from, but the basic definition is: Half Black/Half White
Someone who married an Aboriginal, their child would be mulatto.
( Now I am going to search the origin of the word, it might be intended to be insulting instead of descriptive! )
His grandmother said in a radio interview that Obama is a son of the village
whether that meant a spiritual son with roots there, or
that he was literally born there is open to interpretation
However, I heard this guy tell me he was born in Mombassa. Straight up.
I have given that much thought of late. It seems to me that the myth of 'Dreams' has so penetrated the subconscious by being repeated over and over in the MSM - that even genuine Freepers find themselves basing their research and questions upon the myth, rather than taking a step back and away from what we are expected to believe - and basing our conclusions upon the very little truth that's available...
...which isn't much.
You see the result. Wiki says he left Hawaii in 1979. No one knows that for certain. He apparently graduated in 1979. There's an interesting comment here:
As a teenager, Obama went to parties and sometimes sought out gatherings on military bases...
Your uniform may have been an attraction.
