Skip to comments.Obama and CNN: Black, White or Yellow (Did Obama Pay CNN for a "Debunking")

"...If anyone is still puzzled about the facts, in fact I have never been a Muslim. We had to send CNN to look at the school that I attended in Indonesia where kids were wearing short pants and listening to ipods to indicate that this was not a madrassa but was a secular school in Indonesia..." ~ Barack Obama, 24 February 2008
In a recent episode of Saturday Night Live that featured a parody of a Clinton Obama debate, a faux Campbell Brown chirped "Like nearly everyone in the news media, the three of us are totally in the tank for Senator Obama". Funny? Yes, but this might have hit a bit too close to home.
Surely Barack Obama wouldn't lie now would he? But did the Obama camp really send CNN to Indonesia? Are we to believe that when the accusations of Barack Obama attending a madrassa as a child first broke on Fox News last year that Sam Feist's reply to the Obama camp would be "Please relax. You furnish the money, I'll furnish the debunk."
Like many Americans, my parents raised me to believe that it is the truth that matters. It is. Network news broadcasts and newspaper reports have the power to shape our perceptions, consciously and subliminally and as consumers we naturally expect a bit of integrity on behalf of the networks and media outlets. We expect that opinion and commentary are clearly identified as such. What we don't expect is that the news has been manufactured or bought and paid for. That CNN would assist Obama in deceiving the American people is downright despicable and I think if what Obama is saying is true, then both CNN and Obama owe the American people an apology.
For Barack Obama, the facts are that he is a liar and no one, not CNN or Sam Feist is ever going to change that fact. There is no amount of spin, flooding the internet or debunking that is ever going to change the fact that Barack Hussein Obama was born a Muslim and that he practiced Islam as a child, no more than I can change the fact that I was born and baptized a Catholic and attended Catholic school as a child.
Barack Obama often speaks of hope and change, but for a man that truly aspires to lead our nation, hope and change will simply not suffice, there can be no dignity without honesty.

Are you in Indonesia? If so, maybe an independent investigation is warranted.

Did they go back in time Barry? The school may be the same structure but few if any of the staff from your childhood are still there.
The last time CNN was so eager to obey, they were following orders from Saddam Hussein.
Why would the Indonesian media ignore Bandung Winadijanto? It's because he aint who he says he is.
From Obama's Website:
"This is a public school we don't focus on religion In our daily lives, we try to respect religion but we don't give preferential treatment to." Bandung Winadijanto, a classmate of Obama's, said, "It's not Islamic School, it's general, there is a lot of Christian, Buddhist also Confucian . . . so that's a mixed school."

More info coming soon including details of a PAYOUT made to Obama's school in Indonesia.
Man, what I would give to be a kid with an iPod back in the 70’s.
Do you have the link for that picture? AP give any details of it?
Note to self, Yeah He’s talking about the kids there today.
I understand there are more photos in Indonesia as well of Obama and his family dressed similar.
Obama is the easiest to beat.
It’s a damn shame we’re stuck with McInsane
They come in various colors, but the white one's like Obama is wearing are typically only worn by Muslims who have completed their Haj. (pilgrimage to Mecca)
You have free mail..
I'm sure I'm not the only one extremely interested in hearing what you turn up. Any efforts you can make to insure the info is "airtight" will be appreciated.
This allegation has been "hanging" for far too long without solid confirmation. The O'bama camp seems to have been successful in qwelling media attention to the facts. It will be up to the blogisphere to make this stick if it is true!
Anything less than bulletproof proof (coined a new term there!) will damage the prospects of eventually using his Muslim educational indroctination to prove he is unfit to lead America - particularly in a time of war with IslamoFascism.
If you have a Ping list, please put me on it.
I had no idea what anything these people wear means..I do know Obama is a liar and we had better watch out or we will be living in a Muslim country..So many people are being fooled by him and his wife..ones that don’t even bother to check out the person they will vote for..
The details of the payout will be up soon and when it is - it it will be bulletproof. Not to say it ain't bulletproof now, it is. But I just need to confirm a few more details.
I don't have a pinglist - I wish I did - maybe I could start one - you could also subscribe to my blog by email or just look for me here on FR. FR will be the first place to break the story.
he looks teens in that pic? that may be his dukakis photo op right there. nice work
amazing work. you may be to obambi what doug is to hitlery
There will be time to sort this out before November.
Was Barack's father married to Malik's mother at the time that he married Barack's mother?
He died in car crash in 1982, leaving three wives, six sons and a daughter. All his children except Malik live in Britain or the United States. One of the brothers died in 1984.
I cannot believe after all the slime that the MSM put out about Romneys Mormanism and the history of that religion(and no I was not a Romney supporter), that they could delete the fact that Obamas own father had THREE WIVES. The way the article is written, he was married to them all at the same time!!!!
Barack's half-brother, Malik, is 46. Barack is 43.
This is where I got the one I put up..I hope it is an ok site to post from..
That photo was also in the following article from USA Today (which we can’t post from here.)
I agree. And I still wonder if Barack’s father was already married (and still married) at the time he married Barack’s mother.
Barack’s half-brother, Malik, is 46. Barack is 43.
Barack is 46 and will be 47 this year.
I was curious about the origin of the photo and did a search on the photographer’s name.
Born in August 1961 would make Barry 46.
According to the article, Malik was 46 in 2004 and Barack was 43.
"While Barack may soon be heading to Washington, Malik, a 46-year..."Malik is 2 or 3 years older than Barack. So my question is
"[Malik] first met his 43-year-old half-brother Barack."
Was Barack's father (still) married to Malik's mother when he married Barack's mother?
It is well established that Obama Sr.’s marriage to Stanley Ann Dunham was bigamous.
The bigger question is whether Obama and Dunham in fact WERE married, since Obama Jr. in his book admits the question of how and when they were married is one he has never had the stomach to examine.
Most likely they were married, since Stanley Ann felt the need to obtain a divorce, but indications are that the marriage probably occurred sometime in early 1961, after Stanley Ann learned she was pregnant, although the media persist in perpetuating the completely unfounded notion that they were married in 1960, since Obama was born in August 1961.
The problem with a 1960 marriage date is that Stanley Ann Dunham only met Obama Sr. in the fall of 1960, as a freshman at the University of Hawaii.
The notion that the progressive atheist Dunham decided to chuck all her feminist principles about not needing a man to marry a Kenyan exchange student after knowing him only two moths is incredible, but what the media asks its audience to believe rather than confront the more tawdry alternative.
Rush just mentioned the picture you put up.
I don’t know about this, but 3 years is plenty of time to get rid of one wife and get another. Obama’s Dad must have been a real “family man”.
Muslims are allowed to have up to four wives. You didn't know this?
He does look younger there..One can only hope something will be the undoing of this Muslim..
Is apparent that Barack Sr. felt he didn't need to get a divorce in order to get married.
Do you believe a candidate for POTUS should be truthful?
The more reputable and detailed the source is, the harder it is for Barack to say the picture was taken out of context or photoshopped.
Obama Sr. was already polygamist as a young man in 1960, when he decided he could go ahead and pick up an American wife in addition to the one he already had in Kenya.
Whether he ever intended for them to learn of each other’s existence or to take Stanley Ann to Kenya is unknown, although it is known that Obama Sr.’s own father disapproved strongly of Obama Sr.’s marriage to Stanley Ann.
