I love the new cameras! Much better than that old 35MM I had, that new one were shot from the Pali was with a Cannon EOS 35MM

I had some Kahuku sugar mill shots and also from the Polynesian Cultural center from 80-81 but I guess I didnt upload them

Everyone who ever met him heard him say he was going to be President one day?? What, did he say it to each person who crossed his path?

Didn't BO say as much in Dreams From My Father? I skimmed the book and thought I found that stated somewhere. Anyone else who has read the book, please weigh in.

What about the "King Obama" graven into the sidewalk at the Punahao (sp?) school in Hawaii? There's a .jpg of this on the ObamaFile site (Beckwith's site). BO must have had this dream at a young age, no?

I can believe that would have been “Barry’s” comment - being President, someday - what with Frank Marshall Davis being involved in/with his life.

this is a poor pix, actually looks like a cut & paste

thanks for the ping...funny, a home-grown terrorist named Ayres can write ‘Dreams From My Father’ and the country goes ape, swallows it hook line and sinker, and the few that don’t become labelled right-wing extremists and ‘birthers’ ...

Then a physicist recalls a dinner conversation in Russia that really should have chilled our blood, but he cannot get the story out, no one believes him, so he has to circulate his experience by e-mail and through bloggers, finally ending up joining FR and posting his story here, where he’s treated as a troll...remember Tom Fife?

Now Race Bannon, a Freeper almost for-ever tells us a story of his recollections during his time in Hawaii - when he met a young man who may very well have been obama - but instead of taking notice of the information contained in the well-written story that was a pleasure to read, what does he get for his trouble?

Sad. Tell you what...if I ended up having lunch with the doctor who delivered obama in Mombasa I wouldn’t bother telling anyone about it. I wouldn’t be believed, would I?

But when Barbara Nelson said that Dr West told her ‘Stanley Ann had a baby today’ and she wrote the baby’s name on a table napkin...no one told her she was a liar, did they?

I’m becoming bitterly disgusted with the lack of discernment shown on this forum of late. Sorry.

Is it any wonder people don’t come forward with information regarding the O? People call them liars, etc. So, why bother? Lack of discernment on this forum? I sometimes cringe reading the replies to some of the threads.

I don’t call BS on anything - I just keep things hidden in my heart and see if anything else comes to light, rather than be too quick to judge.

Prayer is our friend. The Bible says that there isn’t anything done in secret that won’t be brought to light. We need to continue praying these words that God will bring to light all the secrets o and company are trying to keep hidden. God knows all!

RaceBannon, you’re easily one of the most level headed and trustworthy freepers here. The story might be “far out” - but from you - it’s believable. I’ll keep reading the thread to see if there’s more... Thanks for sharing.

Fred - it's not easy - but you're appreciated. People who value truth over "getting along" help keep us free - but they don't win popularity contest. I'm sorry Tom Fife was treated badly... do you have a link to that thread? I remember some of it - but would like to reread it. Thanks.

I was just rubbing it in, after all, YOU said you culd point out stuff right away!

LOL!

Who luvs ya baby!

And I dont blame you, anyways, no one who in power will do anything about it and the story itself sounds incredible, I have to admit, but, Even Barry was a young man once.

All the details fit. I was going to go back to see him again for the reasons I stated in the original letter, I guess that’s why I remember it.

And if I didn’t take a Literature and Comp class this semester, I would have never started to record it.

I lurked here a couple years before mustering up the nerve to sign up and start posting in 2001 and have been reading RaceBannon posts for over a decade. If he believes he met Hadji in 1980, I believe the details of his account.

Thank you both for your comments about your dismay and disgust with some comments on FR.

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

Still, it is disheartening to read boneheaded posts. I want to think more highly of FReepers than some comments will allow. Sometimes I shoot back, but more often just close the thread.

All this is to say that I share your disgust, but that it really helps to know that others feel the same way. We are not alone. Most FReepers, I continue to believe, are thoughtful and intelligent Americans — just sometimes quieter than those who annoy us.

Curious: at what point after he began to rise politically did you realize that 0 was the kid you talked to?

Also, comments at the link mention that you are updating the narrative. Will you please post the update (and maybe Ping some of us when you do)?

I dont remember remembering until last fall. Not sure why.

I might have just had it in the background. I don’t remember telling many people at all then, maybe one or two people, it was so long ago I didn’t want to say something that was so incredible and then realize I had it mixed up

but as I laid it out, line by line, that guy I met HAD to be 0bama.

I am not mad at detractors on this. I honestly didn’t expect it to be posted here!

But it is a fantastic story, and immediate doubt is called for unless it is someone yo know or heard of.

I aint mad, in fact it is kind of funny

The guy who lived in Hawaii all his life caught that picture of the Pali lookout from 1999, I only posted it because it is part of the story and how beautiful it looks and all my pics I have from 1980 or 81 are faded shots from a 110 camera. (Remember them?)

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

Mumbassa? Sure, some dork said that and also that he wanted to be President. NOT.

Almost interesting writing but, I could have done a better job.

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

Fred:
We are all a little frustrated lately but, this story just has some very obvious holes in it.

Does Barry O. look like a Mulatto? That is when my spidey senses went off the chart.

And that story from Barbara Nelson is just so much baloney as well.

Go ahead and flame me. You know my very strident stance on Barry O. but, I want to have unimpeachable evidence on this guy not some stories that don’t make sense.

Post on.

I have a friend who is a high level Dem operative and big time supporter. A few months ago she just had to to tell me she met a woman went to school with Barry O. to which I replied “So?”. Somehow she thought would be interesting and I asked from that where are trying to go.

She said nothing more, so it is just a story.

You have been here a long time and I don’t doubt your memory. The story, however, just seems improbable.

No my post wasn’t sarcastic. Heck, I called my Dad after his 2004 speech and asked if he knew about this black Senator. He didn’t.

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

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.

Wiki says he moved to LA in 1979.

The person who wrote the original piece that was quoted in the email was our own Freeper RaceBannon ( the experience happened to him when he was a young man). He thinks it was Obama... and I’ve been around here long enough to know Race isn’t a bulls—ter. Time will tell - there are bound to be others out there with pieces of information about this issue. No man is an island.

Why would you meet a young man and out of the blue say, well you can’t be president? If the story were true, this soldier needs more than I think it was him,he was mulatto.

The only thing I can verify of this story is locals did hate outsiders in Hawaii. A friend born in Maui, moved to Hawaii and the locals constantly broke into her apartment because they thought she was not a local. One day she caught one and screamed I am a local, get out of here.

I agree the story is odd but if it were true it proves nothing.

RB, please watch your back.

When 0b0z0 is caught and thrown out of our House, it would be interesting to see how many will vanish from FR.

I believe that ANY of his hidden records, once revealed, will nail him and end his fascist reign.
