Obama in 1980 said he was born in Mombasa, Kenya

Obama in 1980 said he was born in Mombasa, Kenya

>> a chance meeting in the vicinity of Kalakaua Blvd., one evening in early August of 1980.

The former Marine is a highly respected member of the Free-Republic online-community>>

"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.”

----------------------------------------------------- Posted at freerepublic this AM:

>>I cant prove it, no one was with me, but I DID meet a young Mulatto male in 1980 about 1 1/2 months after I got back from deployment to Iran, while stationed in Hawaii.

He told me he was raised in Indonesia, had family in Hawaii and the mainland, his views on America were outragous but I dont remember any details, just the emotion. He was friendly enough, talkative.

And when I started telling him where I had been in the Corps for foreign countries, I told him I was just in Mombassa he interrupted me and said I WAS BORN THERE.

I cant prove who I saw, I cant remember his name at all, I have no recollection of his name at all, but I vaguely remember his face and it is Obama.

I remember that face.

I remember this event because I went back to the barracks to get people to gather their scrap books to go back to Honolulu to show him pictures of Mombassa so he could see where he was born.

Born in Mombassa, Raised in Indonesia, Living in Hawaii in1980, Mulatto kid about 18 or so...Robert Redford?<<

No member of the US military was deployed to Iran in 1980. That would of been during the Iran Hostage crisis. The Islamic Revolution was openly hostile to the USA.

There was a failed attempt to go in commando-style and rescue the hostages. There was catastrophic equipment failure and the mission was aborted. Carter went on national television to announce the failure.

After he is no longer in office we will know the truth. Now it is just a distraction to use against us so Zero is hoping he can change the debate to his nativity. The truth at this point is just about irrelevant because no one in congress is going to initiate impeachment over it and the Supreme court isn’t going to declare him an impostor. Truth is, he is not natural born and should have never been nominated. Unfortunately he is there now and will be for another three years and then our national nightmare will be over.

“The Hippies Who "Certified" Obama (Get a look at the 2 child-hippies who certified our "president")”


Kenya Sunday Standard headline — “Kenyan-born Obama all set for US Senate”

The Nigerian Observer — “Americans will today go to the polls to elect their next President with Democratic Party candidate, Senator Barack Obama largely favoured to win. The Kenyan-born Senator will…”

USAfrica — “Kenyan-born OBAMA makes history…wins presidential nomination of U. S. Democratic party; eyes on White House…”

AllAfrica.com — ” Little wonder then why Kenyan-born Barack Obama, America’s first Black President…”


GraphicGhana.com — “For Ghana, Obama’s visit will be a celebration of another milestone in African history as it hosts the first-ever African-American President on this
presidential visit to the continent of his birth.” The same article, with the same quote, appeared in ModernGhana.com.

The Ghana Times — “So far, the odds favour the once underdog in American politics, Obama, the African-American Senator from Illinois state. A Congressional Quarterly
(CQ) politics monitored on BBC put the Kenyan born American ahead of his rivel, John McCain.”

From the comment section:
(”AmericanDaughter“) NPR.org — “…She also describes the stories that have been exciting, including the U.S. presidential race of Kenyan-born Sen. Barack Obama.”

(”AmericanDaughter“) AllAfrica.com — “Kampala — Ugandans have formed a group to mobilise support for Kenyan born-senator, Barack Obama for the US presidency.” "


“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 Obama’s 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 Obama’s 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.“


Br> “US Presidential Polls:Obama, McCain slug it out today
WASHINGTON – Americans will today go to the polls to elect their next President with
Democratic Party candidate, Senator Barack Obama largely favoured to win.
The Kenyan-born Senator will, however, face a stiff competition from his Republican
counterpart, John McCain who has taken the presidential battle to the finishing line with
vigorous campaign strategies.”


“Americans Decide Today - go Obama (this site hasn't been scrubbed yet)
So far, the odds favour the once underdog in American politics, Obama, the African-American Senator from Illinois State .
A Congressional Quarterly (CQ) politics monitored on BBC put the Kenyan born American ahead of his rival, Senator McCain.”


“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 Obama’s 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 Obama’s 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 Obama’s 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."


Clearing the Smoke on Obama’s Eligibility: An Intelligence Investigator’s June 10 Report
"The Territorial Public Health Statistics Act in the 1955 Revised Laws of Hawaii
In the State of Hawaii, back in 1961, there were four different ways to get an “original birth certificate” on record.
BC1. If the birth was attended by a physician or mid wife, the attending medical professional was required to certify to the Department of Health the facts of the birth date, location, parents’ identities and other information. (See Section 57-8 & 9 of the Territorial Public Health Statistics Act in the 1955 Revised Laws of Hawaii which was in effect in 1961).





governor, or his secretary, or such other person as he may designate or appoint from his office” §338-41 [in 1961]).

In 1982, the vital records law was amended to create a fifth kind of “original birth certificate”. Under Act 182 H.B. NO. 3016-82, “Upon application of an adult or the legal parents of a minor child, the director of health shall issue a birth certificate for such adult or minor, provided that the proof has been submitted to the director of health that the legal parents of such individual while living without the Territory or State of Hawaii had declared the Territory or State of Hawaii as their legal residence for at least one year immediately preceding the birth or adoption of such child.”
In this way “state policies and procedures” accommodate even “children born out of State” (this is the actual language of Act 182) with an “original birth certificate on record.”

“No member of the US military was deployed to Iran in 1980.”

The embassy employees were still being held hostage. Any military assigned to Tehran at that time would have to have been among them. They were released in January, 1981, simultaneously with the inauguration of the Gipper, who probably would have gone in to get them.

I have met "Race Bannon" and he is a real person. So I agree with the above posters who say, contact him.

On the other hand, I also know that eyewitness memory can distort things. The often-creepy Dr. Phil ran a topic I actually watched on Friday -- two women who were raped and identified their rapists who then went to jail for lengthy terms; DNA evidence later cleared their alleged perpetrators and implicated someone similar-looking whose DNA was in the system.

There is also the tendency of emotionally abandoned children to make up fantasy stories about their romantic past with which to impress others; especially adolescents and young adults when they get away from people who actually know them. Therefore the person Race talked to, who could very well have been who he thinks he was, could have been B.S'ing.

Even if the story is true, The One did not stay in Kenya and would have had no conscious memory of being a newborn for several days in a hospital in Kenya, assuming that the rest of the apocryphal timeline is accurate -- that the mother then flew ASAP to Hawaii to establish the child as an American citizen.

So while I do not doubt for a moment what Race says he saw, and recognize that it may have been 100% accurate; I also sincerely regret that it won't meet any standard of proof.

You'd think the prez would just show his frikkin' birth certificate and be done with it.

True. No matter Zer0 isn't going to be impeached over this issue, sadly it's a dead end. The thing that we must concentrate on is neutralizing him as best we can by getting conservatives into congress and into local offices to act as a sort of farm team for future elections.

Only Marines on that mission were the helo crews. It is doubtful any serviceman would identify a brief landing in Iran as a deployment. That term carries a sense of extended service in a particular theater.

I believe Obama has not minions to identify his opponents with those people who believe he is foreign born. He can then paint those in opposition as being birthers, and not worthy of serious consideration.

Releasing his BC removes that portion of his political strategy.

I think your story is fascinating. I know the truth is out there and it’s just a matter of time before it is revealed. This isn’t the kind of secret a “president” can keep forever. He’s so nervous about it that he saw fit to mention it at the prayer meeting the other day.

I've seen this story before, but that doesn't mean it's not true.

For some reason there are a lot of people either involved in covering up Hussein's birth records, or who choose to look the other way and ignore The Constitution - and that includes some on this forum.

(worth a reposting)

Yeah. Republicans have elected Scott Brown, and rallying around candidates who have a chance at winning many other races. Republicans are organizing, raising money, and settling on a positive agenda of limited government and individual rights.

Must be time to distract them by re-posting a bunch of Birtherism Bravo Sierra. Great job. Obama approves.

Don't forget the "He's a Brit, not an American" canard.

Oh, I haven't seen Birthers peddling the "He was born in Canada" fairy tale in some time. Maybe you need to recycle that too.

There is an election coming up in less than 10 months. Freepers who want to make a difference will work to defeat Obama at the polls. Freepers who want to engage in make believe will indulge in Birtherism.
