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.

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.

Some of it, I’m sure, has to do with the disillusionment and cynicism inherent in our current political situation.

It has to do with the libs, dailykos and others online creating stories hoping we will run with them.

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 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.

This is a stupid story. Barry O. doesn’t look Mulatto. He looks black, plainly.

I am going back to bed. A little under the weather.

Dear vendome,

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

Liddy was released from prison 1977. His son the Navy seal said he went into the military toi pay for college during a time his father was in jail. Jim could be the guy you met in 1980. Carter's commutation made Liddy eligible for parole as of July 9, 1977. Liddy was released on September 7, 1977 having served a total of four-and-a-half years of actual incarceration.

http://www.howardstern.com/rundown.hs?d=1140066000

Since Jim brought up that he served in the military, Howard wondered if he chose that path in life because of his dad’s reputation of being a tough guy. Jim replied that wasn’t the case and that he actually joined the Navy to help pay for college, noting as his father was in jail during that time.

Dude looks black to me and yes his relatives look a shade a darker but, Barry O. looks black to me.

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!!!

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?
http://www.oxy.edu/x5116.xml

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.

A blogger posting this story on a blog that starts off as "A friend of mine sent me this story of his time in the Marine Corps. Read through to the end, it’s a shocker." does not seem reliable. That is why I made my skeptical comment.
You say that YOU wrote the story that the blogger posted, that is a little different. You say you wrote it, and you say it is the truth, that is very different than a blogger I am unfamiliar with claiming he got it from a friend.
I think you are a credible person, as you have a long standing reliable reputation here. I wrote my comment before you stepped in and confirmed the story.
There is no limit to the BS on blogs and rumor emails, especially the ones that start off with "I got this the other day from a friend of mine..."
I have no reason to doubt the word of racebannon the long standing FReeper with a solid reputation.

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.

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.

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."

LOL!

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.

And boy was that so right, other people, when it is in their favor, are held up and believed, yet anyone else, like me, we are most likely kooks.

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:

HIGH SCHOOL YEARS.SOURCE

As a teenager, Obama went to parties and sometimes sought out gatherings on military bases...

Your uniform may have been an attraction.
