Skip to comments.Journalism Fail: Boston Globe Reporter Had Obama Sr. Immigration Records Since 2009
Posted on 04/30/2011 7:05:23 AM PDT by Askwhy5times
In what appears to be a shocking journalistic fail, a Boston Globe reporter acquired Barack H. Obama Sr.'s immigration records in 2009 under a FOIA request.
(Boston Globe)- The INS documents, released to this reporter through a Freedom Of Information Act request in 2009 in the course of research on a biography of the elder Obama to be released in July, reveal Harvards crucial role in the tumultuous course of the presidents fathers life. The documents were made public Wednesday by the weekly newspaper, The Arizona Independent.The records were very uncomplimentary to Obama Sr. He is described as a serial womanizer, polygamist and a "slippery" character. According to the documents, Harvard tried to have Obama Sr. deported. The records were released this week by another newspaper, Arizona Independent, after they received them under a separate FOIA request. The Boston Globe reporter is writing a book and it is unclear if this information would have been included. The mainstream media has a strong aversion to reporting negative information about President Obama and Democrats. The National Enquirer broke the John Edwards' "Love Child" story. The mainstream media suppressed it even after the National Enquirer broke the story.

The media is in fail mode. Nothing but a partisan political operation. Controlled by the DNC.
Obama’s whole life is a lie.....”Dreams of My Father” my _ __.
The story will be spun to show what a racist institution Harvard was then.
The Main Stream Media is despicable

Just doing their job. There is no pretense of actual reporting anymore. They are paid political operatives.
Like the Donald said....Why is all this hidden??
“Journalistic fail”. Talk about being charitable.
They keep from us important information if it is harmful to Democrats.
They propagate falsehoods if they will harm Conservatives.
Can't we organize a massive Tea Party demonstration aimed at media headquarters?
I'd love to see 250,000 enraged patriots storming the headquarters of NBC, ABC, CBS, NPR, AP, Reuters, etc...
What we need is TPN. A new network.
reads funny...was the request in 2009 ? or was the release in 2009 ?
Their job is producing infomercials for the DNC/CPUSA.
Accusations of racism are all they have left.
The liberal media hid the report because HUSSEIN THE ELDER KNOCKED UP an UNDERAGE WHITE HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT who was forced to have an ABORTION.
Is there evidence he knocked up another teen girl?
As an African, I have been intrigued by controversy around President Obama’s birth records:
1. If Obama’s mother was an American, doesn’t that make him an American citizen? I know a couple of African man / American women couples where I live - aren’t their children American citizens? Are their children disqualified from contesting for the presidency?
2. I don’t think it is in good taste to dwell on President Obama’s father’s womanising ways. If there is anything the World loves and respects about America, it is the fact that Americans respect and admire you for who you are and what you made out of your life, not your parents misdeeds.
Leave snobbery to the Brits, the Brits are hung up on class and are obsessed with whether your great grand daddy was a Yorkshire coal miner or a Norman knight.
3. The World is watching. You might not know it - the US is most popular in Sub-Saharan Africa. Many Sub-Saharan Africans are monitor US politics and are sophisticated enough to understand that Obama’s management of the economy leaves a lot to be desired. The Zambian born economist Dambisa Moyo has rightly criticised the management of major Western economies.
What we cannot understand is the obsession with Obama’s origins. I have a childhood friend, David. His parents had him in America and he works in America as a pharmacist. I have another childhood friend, Tony. Tony was born in Africa to an African father and an American mother. Both Tony and David work in America, are accepted in America and I believe are eligible to run for the presidency if they so desire.
If you are interested in public diplomacy and the perception of America in Sub-Saharan Africa, please handle this matter with care. Every one understands the frustration with the mismanagement of the American economy but the subliminal message the obsession over Obama’s origins sends really needs to be handled with utmost care.
Journalism? What does the Boston Globe have to do with Journalism?
It’s in the report! She was a high school student, too. Her parents sent her to England for the abortion.
“The story will be spun to show what a racist institution Harvard was then.”
“New files reveal Barack Obama fathers “disturbing treatment” at the hands of US immigration and university officials
28 April 2011
Yes, but not conclusive, at least from what I've seen. The immigration files describe a mysterious Kenyan girl of high school age who is an an associate of BHO Sr. She suddenly goes to London against the wishes of her sponsoring religious organization. The organization severs ties with her. The reason for her visit is redacted, but I think it might have been for an abortion. One doc describes BHO Sr. as "likely her boy friend". Another includes the phrases "her relations with Mr. Obama."
Something to think over:
Polks and school records all have O Sr. at just the 11th ave address. Now, with these immigration records we have a total of four Hawaiian addresses for him.
11th Ave. -Official address on record
2036 Round Top Terrace, Honolulu -Fingerprint card
1482 Alencastre St. -INS memo 8/31/61
6085 Kalanianaole Highway -Newspaper birth announcements
I had seen somewhere that he stayed very briefly at a YMCA or something till he got the 11th Ave. place.
So, the Polks and his school records dont reflect three of these addresses.
But-according to these records, he does claim to have a wife and son.
I'm not, but welcome to FR.
Not necessarily. It depends on where the child was born and the marital status of the parents at the time of birth.
If the child is born in the US, he/she automatically becomes an American citizen thru birthright citizenship, i.e., jus solis, regardless of the citizenship of the parents. The parents could be illegal aliens and it wouldn't matter under our existing laws.
If the child is born abroad the following terms and conditions apply: Acquisition of U.S. Citizenship by a Child Born Abroad
2. I dont think it is in good taste to dwell on President Obamas fathers womanising ways. If there is anything the World loves and respects about America, it is the fact that Americans respect and admire you for who you are and what you made out of your life, not your parents misdeeds.
Sorry, but the President is a public figure. There will be public scrutiny of his life and his statements. In his autobiographical book, Dreams From My Father, A Story of Race and Inheritance Obama paints a far different picture of his father than the documents that have been released. If the President writes something that is untrue, shouldn't we call him to task on it? Check out this source documents and see for yourself.
What we cannot understand is the obsession with Obamas origins.
Obama is obsessed with his African origins even though it appears from the recently released documents that his father never lived with his mother and that they essentially had no relationship three weeks after Obama was born. She went to Washington state and Obama Sr went to MA. Obama's father turned out to be just a sperm donor who had no relationship with his son. And Obama's mother sent him to live and be raised by his grandparents in Hawaii when he was 10. Obama was abandoned by both his mother and father. Maybe that contributed to his obsession about his roots and why is autobiography fixates on it.
If you are interested in public diplomacy and the perception of America in Sub-Saharan Africa, please handle this matter with care. Every one understands the frustration with the mismanagement of the American economy but the subliminal message the obsession over Obamas origins sends really needs to be handled with utmost care.
How so? What does his election as President of the United States say about this country? And why is "the US most popular in Sub-Saharan Africa?"
Our constitution says that the president must be a natural born citizen. There are many threads about the topic on FR.
Who actually is shocked by this journalistic failure or by the revelations about his drunken carousing father.
This latest San Francisco Chronicle reporter fiasco proves that the msm researched, recorded, and then HID anything negative about the America hating evildoer.
It depends on which record and which son. Here is one that admits he is married, presumably to his African wife because he lists his son, Roy, by Kezia Aoko. They were married in a tribal ceremony when Obama Sr was 18. They had two children, Malik (aka Roy) and Auma, during the early years of their marriage.
0bama is native born, not natural born, which makes him ineligible to be president.
Better yet, why spend a few million in the courts to keep all such revealing information suppressed? =.=
It's obvious now, isn't it? Obama is NOT who he says he is, he is NOT interested in improving anything that is good for America. Actually, it can be seen he is for anything and everything that hurts America:
1. Loves oil from overseas, hates US production
2. Loves foreign illegal immigrants, hates taxpaying American citizens
3. Loves EPA restrictions that force up the price of everything, hates big business that can bring prices down if left alone
Wants open borders that will destroy America as we know it, hates states that will strengthen borders
Loves policies that spends massive amounts of money on nothing but corruption (payoff unions who pay off Demo Party)
Loves REVOLUTION when it's against countries that get along with America, wants to replace those regimes with Muslim who want to kill Jews and Americans; I.E. Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, Libyan Al Qaeda.
Obama and his handlers who put him there love the fact that Americans really are the biggest fools in history, they won't even consider Obama is a Muslim plant whose goal is to enslave the world under Sharia law.
The Boston Globe/New York Times sitting on information unfavorable to the Democrats? Say it ain’t so!!!
They are news readers, nothing more.
However, my newspaper actually published this story today.
". . . As a young man, Obama (Jr.) learned from his mother that Hussein Obama, his paternal grandfather had written the Dunhams what Anna described as a long, nasty letter saying he didn't want the Obama blood sullied by a white woman.(gleaned from Bill Whittle's "FireWall" video series THE ENIGMA, PART 1: STRANGE BEDFELLOWS ) This would also explain why Stanley Ann left Hawaii to "continue her education" in Washington state as soon as she got medical clearance to travel. Rumor has it she also applied for her first passport around this time as well. She was running, having embarrassed her family, being rejected by Jr. and Sr. with extreme callousness . . .her circumstance were difficult to confront on a daily basis and impossible for the Dunhams to disguise/excuse. Thoroughly humiliated, she picked up her infant and left Hawaii for greener (red'er) pastures.
Our very wise Founding Fathers stipulated in the Constitution that the President MUST be a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN - i.e. BOTH parents MUST be US citizens.
This was to protect our Republic from questionable loyalty of dual citizenship.
Imam Ozero fails the Constitutional test.
The Constitution is the absolute law of America.
No leftwing socialist trolls can change the Constitutional facts.
Imam Ozero is NOT elgible to be Presient.
Two constitutional scholars Lawrence Tribe and Ted Olson, wrote an opinion on whether they deemed John McCain to be eligible under the Constitution to run as part of the Senate Resolution that addressed the subject.
The Constitution does not define the meaning of natural born Citizen. The U.S. Supreme Court gives meaning to terms that are not expressly defined in the Constitution by looking to the context in which those terms are used; to statutes enacted by the First Congress, Marsh v. Chambers, 463 U.S. 783, 790-91 (1983); and to the common law at the time of the Founding. United Suites v. Wong Kim Ark, 169 U.S. 649, 655 (1898). These sources all confirm that the phrase natural born includes both birth abroad to parents who were citizens, and birth within a nations territory and allegiance. Thus, regardless of the sovereign status of the Panama Canal Zone at the time of Senator McCains birth, he is a natural born citizen because he was born to parents who were U.S. citizens.
Indeed, the statute that the First Congress enacted on this subject not only established that such children are U.S. citizens, but also expressly referred to them as natural born citizens. Act of Mar. 26, 1790, ch. 3, § 1, 1 Stat. 103, 104.
Historical practice confirms that birth on soil that is under the sovereignty of the United States, but not within a State, satisfies the Natural Born Citizen Clause. For example, Vice President Charles Curtis was born in the territory of Kansas on January 25, 1860 one year before Kansas became a State. Because the Twelfth Amendment requires that Vice Presidents possess the same qualifications as Presidents, the service of Vice President Curtis verifies that the phrase natural born Citizen includes birth outside of any State but within U.S. territory. Similarly, Senator Barry Goldwater was born in Arizona before its statehood, yet attained the Republican Partys presidential nomination in 1964. And Senator Barack Obama was born in Hawaii on August 4, 1961 not long after its admission to the Union on August 21, 1959. We find it inconceivable that Senator Obama would have been ineligible for the Presidency had he been born two years earlier.
Dude...where do you get off lecturing us about good taste and snobbery?
Most of us could care less what sub-saharan africa thinks.
If this was Sarah Palin’s father, or any other conservative politician’s father, there would be a non stop assault launched by the mainstream media.
Surely we can’t expect the Boston Glob to report anything unfavorable to Obama. If anything, the Glob is even worse than its putative master, the NY Slimes.
I was wondering why the POTUS was so brain dead.
Under box 7 - Names of Children - it states the childs name as Roy Obama. Who the heck is Roy Obama? Is the BO’s real name?
Children born on USA soil from parentS(note plural) who are citizens of the USA are certainly eligible for POTUSA. I would take from what you said some of the young are not eligible. Even those persons who swear allegience to the USA and to forgo any such allegience to any other foreign nation to become USA citizens are not eligible for POTUSA,as the roots for eligibility go deeper for a natural born citizen to the already established allegience of the parents. I am well aware of this predicament. My brother(killed in the battle for Okinawa) and I a WWII vet were born in the USA of immigrant parents not natualized at our births. I have had to be satisfied with just being a USA citizen and I know my brother by letters was willing to die for just that right.
...his African wife because he lists his son, Roy, by Kezia Aoko. They were married in a tribal ceremony when Obama Sr was 18. They had two children, Malik (aka Roy)and Auma, during the early years of their marriage.
This file brings up a lot of questions.
For example, what was Ann doing in the Phillipines?Or did they mean Indonesia??? Either way, what was she doing there?
The church who sponsored the African girl was involved with Kennedy’s airlift.
It was also involved with the OSS during World War II
It was also involved with the CIA front used for the defector program in Vietnam.
Which Ann was involved the same organization during her time in Indonesia.
Ann was there during the CIA approved East Timor Massacre.
Nothing is ever what it seems with Obama.
You also see Dulles brother mentioned in conjunction with this Church.
In this Obama Family photo are: (bottom row, from left) half-sister Auma, her mother Kezia Obama, Obamas step-grandmother Sarah Hussein Onyango Obama and unknown; (top row, from left) unknown, Barack Obama, half-brother Abongo (Roy) Obama, and three unknowns. (Sun Times)
Barack Obama stands behind Kezia (stepmother) in a Kenyan family shot. Included in the photo is brother Abongo Roy Obama who is a Luo activist and a militant Muslim who argues that the black man must liberate himself from the poisoning influences of European culture.
Abongos new lifestyle has left him lean and clear-eyed, and at the wedding, he looked so dignified in his black African gown with white trim and matching cap that so me of our guests mistook him for my father, Obama wrote in Dreams From My Father.
That said, enough with all this nonsense today, I'm going fishing!!
Here is another more interesting one. Obama Sr. indicates that he is married to SAD but no mention of a child. The form is dated August 31, 1961 (Part IV), three weeks after Obama is born. Why the omission? And it appears that he is putting in the extension request after his visa expires on August 9, 1961 Also note, that he lists his birthdate as 1934 versus the usual 1936 attributed to his birth year. The 1934 birth date is repeated on several other forms as well, specifically his initial documents before and after entry into the US.
