Obama in 1980 said he was born in Mombasa, Kenya
thepostemail.com ^ | Dec. 3, 2009 | John Charlton

Posted on 04/21/2011 5:43:45 PM PDT by cycle of discernment

"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.”

In the light of what is called “The Birther” movement, these memories are still foremost in my mind concerning this. While I cannot swear it was Barak Obama, all the details I do remember of that chance encounter fit the profile of the man who some people claim is born in Kenya and others claim he was born in Hawaii .

The man I met was about 18, thin, Mulatto, told me he was born in Mombassa, raised overseas, was living in Hawaii and hadn’t yet been to many places in the world outside of those places, mostly, hadn’t been to the mainland of America for any long time period if at all. And he openly told me he wanted to be President.

And I remember that face, the face of a young man who sat on a table to my right front, his hands resting on the edge of the table, him leaning forward, his smile, all teeth. It was Barak Obama. I don’t know if I’d bet my life on it, but I am willing to tell people openly at the risk of my ridicule. I was there, and saw him, spoke to him, and he openly told me he was born in Mombassa, Kenya, not Hawaii."

There is at least one published interview before Obama ran for President where he himself said he was born in Kenya.

When I went to the link, I was stunned to see it was Race Bannon; don’t doubt he told it here but I never saw it. I’ve seen his name on many threads and may have conversed with him about other things.

Two scenarios to this:

1. Obama really was born in Kenya and was telling the truth in 1980.

2. Obama was born in Hawaii, but was saying he was born in Kenya and an Indonesian Citizen to get a sweetheart deal on a US Foreign Student aid grant.

I could give a crap about his Birth Certificate, We need to see his college records, because if scenario 2 is true that shows that he willingly defrauded the US government, and also deprived another Indonesian citizen of the grant he got.

This is more important because the PC brain washed masses in this country will forgive the baby Obama for the sins of his promiscuous father and loose mother and whatever country they were in when he slid down his mother’s slip and slide. But will they forgive a “supposed champion of the foreigner” for taking away a college education from one of his “fellow” Indonesians?

Now don’t get me wrong I would like to see his Long Form, but I think his college records are 1000% more important because they could open a can of worms that shows deceptive behavior of an adult.

It sounds so outrageous in this article thay Obama would have impulsively announced at 18, “I want to be President of the United States”—but now that it is revealed he said at 9 years old he wanted to be Prime Minister of Indonesia, the dysfunctional grandiosity builds a pattern.

Narcissicists are apparently created when they are rejected or diminished by their mother/father in the very early years of life—and they develop an overcompensating and false grandiose ego.

All fragile illusion and volatile temperament. Another characteristic is a finely developed superficial charm to draw people in for what they feed upon, “NS”, aka, Narcissicistic Supply. That means flatterers and those that can provide opportunities for the narcissicist to live out their fantasies.

The narcissicist will ruthlessly cast aside those that no longer serve adequate NS.

Also a key attribute is the complete absence of authentic empathy...so pathologically self involved from the first years, they are irretrievably encoded.

I think the shoe fits our president.

Well, they neglect to mention that a lot of kids say they want to be President. (in other articles I mean).

Of course, they could just produce a $12 Long Form Birth Certificate.

But that would cost $12.

I had a friend who found out when she was 40+ years old that she and her brother were adopted — this was found out after going through her mother’s papers who had died suddenly. No one in the family ever let on because that’s the way my friend’s parents wanted it. Her folks were short little Italians and she was a tall skinny blonde. My point is that none of us would ever know the truth about our births unless there existed a real birth certificate with all the necessary documentation. Maybe Barry Soetoro’s family lied to him for years, and he really did believe he was born in Mombassa. That is until he went thru his mother’s papers after she died. Frankly, I don’t believe a single thing out of that man’s mouth or out of the mouth’s of any of his minions and supporters. They have a big agenda, and it’s all about the murder of America. All the other drama is to keep us embroiled in the caca.

Obama is an enigma wrapped in a riddle covered in heavy duty deception.

95% of everything we “know” about Obama is from Obama himself. There is virtually a blank slate from the time he was born until he was 35 or so years old.

Childhood friends, relatives, acquaintances, classmates from school, co-workers, all are practically non-existent.

All you know about Barak Obama is what he wants you to know. Think about that.

A freeper who has been here since 1998 and many know personally as an upstanding and honorable man

or

he's not the only one, another very reliable person saw him a few years earlier:

"One evening I was at a party somewhere on Oahu, Hawai'i, between Kailua and Sunset Beach, in what I think must have been the year 1977. A friend whose identity I have forgotten pointed to a teenaged, thin fellow who certainly was Barack Obama and asked me: "Do you know that he is being groomed for the Presidency?". The thought was so preposterous that I rejected it out of hand."

And Race recalls Barry calling an old man with an apron (hot dog vendor?) “Pops”. That was the title/subject of a poem that Obama claimed he wrote (supposedly penned by one Frank Marshall Davis aka Pops).

Would you not consider eyewitness testimony as “proof”?
I have read Race’s account of this meeting several times in the past few years. He is extremely consistent, and IIRC, he posted it along with several other details on the “long thread.”
He stated that he and the friends he was with were going to gather some photos of their sojourn in Africa to take back to show this young man because they felt like they would be doing the kid a good deed, but for some reason, that sort of fell by the wayside and they didn’t follow through.
I sure wish they had. Might have made a world of difference if he had gotten closer to this guy.
bam is a consummate braggart. There is no telling what he would have said then, but it might be very interesting to know more about his origins and his stated goal from the perspective of his being just loose and running off at the mouth with some Marines he thought he would never see again.
Race, do you ever wonder what would have happened if you had gone back?

It’s just that this man is so despicable that just about anything that would give him the hook off our stage is welcome.

And yeah. I know what prosecuters say about eyewitnesses. But this is a little more than a fleeting glance. There was a conversation. obama’s toothy smile is almost legendary. Hard to forget, unfortunately. And the word of a Marine who is trained to observe just might carry some extra weight.
Just sayin’.
Semper fi.

Do you know if RaceBannon is still around -

No, I haven't seen any posts by him lately, but I did see Brown Deer is back, at least briefly. So I know the rules, I have to ping them if I mention him.

Thanks for the link; I don't know what to make of it. I'm not a Kenya birther. I just know that some things don't seem to add up. I did look up the Senate resolution when they made such a big deal about McCain's and that Obama co-sponsored that. Senate Resolution S. 511, April 2008.

Why did McCain have to show his and Obama got a pass? Oh, I know, the COLB is supposedly valid in Hawaii. But I think it is a fake, and there are different versions of it out there. Why would that be? I don't have a firm opinion on the rest of the supposed documents. I do have an opinion on Trump's. I think they are the real deal.

Now would I support a mogul who represents a lifestyle I deplore? Like that Taj in Vegas which I consider major ugly? Gambling, flamboyant, ostentatious? His kids are really neat, saw the latest YT video on them; Ivanka is gorgeous. The impression I get is, and I don't necessarily mean this as criticism, but his relationship with his children since they were very young has been strictly business. Well, my father drew me into his career as an engineer and farm management as soon as he got back from the war. But we did lots of other things as family.

I wonder what he does for fun? My father escaped to the basement and garage and built stuff. He worked on the design for a dam. I never thought about it, he was so proud of that accomplishment, but I was going through his notebook and wondered how many farmers lost their farms over that and wonder if my father ever thought of the consequences. Eminent domain. So my daughter suggested maybe it benefitted more people downstream. I don't know.
