Skip to comments.'Fight the Smears' Website Admits Obama was Kenyan Citizen: Where's the MSM?
Posted on 09/29/2008 4:23:28 AM PDT by PJ-Comix
Following the controversy over the authenticity of Barack Obama's birth certificate can be a bit confusing with all its detailed analysis. Your humble correspondent will leave that up to the experts. However, in response to the charge that Barack Obama is not an American citizen, Obama's Fight the Smears website, quoting FactCheck.Org, has made a bombshell admission...Barack Obama was once a citizen of Kenya. You read that right, Obama had Kenyan citizenship until 1982. Here is the startling admission published in Fight the Smears (emphasis mine):
When Barack Obama Jr. was born on Aug. 4,1961, in Honolulu, Kenya was a British colony, still part of the United Kingdoms dwindling empire. As a Kenyan native, Barack Obama Sr. was a British subject whose citizenship status was governed by The British Nationality Act of 1948. That same act governed the status of Obama Sr.s children.
Since Sen. Obama has neither renounced his U.S. citizenship nor sworn an oath of allegiance to Kenya, his Kenyan citizenship automatically expired on Aug. 4,1982.

What about his Indonesian citizenship? When he was adopted by the Indonesian, he became a citizen of Indonesia; that was never renounced, either. Did that one “lapse” too? It would be interesting to get into that detail.
wonders how many passports Obama has.
You might give him a cookie, but his employer will give him a lump of coal.
Let me know if you want on PJ's NewsBusters Ping List.
I bet no reporter states this or ask about it and I bet this will be changed very shortly
Please add me to your list. Thanks
I sent the information to Drudge and Fox and Friends. Others that have pertinent emails, can you send it out? If we can get broad coverage of this it could turn into something.
In my opinion, duel citizenship does not disqualify him, especially since he has not been a Kenyan since 1982.
I think there are about a billion other reasons to vote against him. I don’t think the voters will be concerned about this...there are lots of duel citizenship people in this country due to their parents, birth, etc.
The sickening, disgusting, dangerous truth about Hussein and his ilk, make it imperative that any patriotic, God-fearing, liberty-loving American oppose him and help put his efforts to gain the Presidency down. That's why...
Where is the Biden bombshell -—been waiting for weeks
I think the point is that if we suddenly found out that Palin also had citizenship with another country the MSM would be screaming it from top top of their headlines across the country for days and demand an investigation and her removal from the ticket until the investigattion was complete.
For Obama ... silence.
I wouldn’t hold your breath about Drudge running this story. Have you noticed the volume of BHO ads on his site? Why would Drudge want to piss of the MSM who slip him big stories when they need a push?
If he never pro-actively sought this then it is an absolute non issue.
If he ever did anything to maintain this status then you have something. Did he?
Read the next DUmmie FUnnies (today). I will be making a BIG announcement on that.
Yes, there are a billion reasons (figuratively) to vote agains Obomber. However, our (US) constitution is very strict on citizenship, and his having been born in Keyna to a British father negates his qualification for presidency. Ergo, voting against or for him is a moot point.
Wrong because until now NO MENTION of Obama's dual citizenship (until 21) has ever been made in the MSM. The issue is that this has NOT been reported.
Agreed. He’s in the tank for obummer. worth it to try though, I guess.
Until I see more proof, I will give Obama the benefit of the doubt that he was born in Hawaii. However, we now know for sure that he also held Kenyan citizenship until he was 21. This has NEVER been mentioned in the MSM. That is the issue here.
I believe that's absolutely true.
The New York Times has even reported on Governor Palin's hairdresser, for goodness sake. But this astonishing revelation on the part of Senator "Coke-head" Obama is treated with utter silence.
I agree but why didn't the MSM ever report that he once held dual (or triple) citizenship? This is an important biographical fact that has been SUPPRESSED by the MSM.
I agree. We win on issues.
Obama was not born in Hawaii. He was born in Kenya. That’s a fact. His “Hawaiian Birth Certificate” was a fake.
I disagree. Win by whatever means possible, as long as they are legal and truthful. The Democrats are playing hardball and the Republicans need to do the same.
If we don't, and Obama wins, how will we explain to future generations when he destroys the country from within? Will we say "we took the high road"? Yeah, that'll be a BIG consolation to my future grandkids, Mohamed and Bahiyaa.
No matter what the laws are/were in whatever foreign country he was born in, the fact remains he’s still an American citizen through his mother.
As others have said, this is a non-issue on par with Palin’s hairdresser. What the msm reports or doesn’t report is not the issue. The issue is he’s lied about countless activites, he’s not accomplished much of anything in congress other than being “present” less times than he’s not been, and he and his puppet masters are out to destroy America.
We’ve got this archived, right? so it can’t just disappear down the memory hole when the campaign wakes up in the morning.
Show me the birth certificate!
I agree that whatever we do much be legal and truthful and that Democrats are being less than truthful. We are not trying to convince fellow conservatives. We are not trying to convince left wingers. We are trying to convince middle of the road independents. Our message must be targeted to what they are willing to hear and believe. Most do not understand dual citizenship issues, national birth issues and so forth. They do understand the price of gas, the cost of credit and the need to be safe in the world.
In my opinion, duel citizenship does not disqualify him, especially since he has not been a Kenyan since 1982.
I am not an expert on the law but it SHOULD disqualify him because we don’t need a president who might have even a small feeling of allegiance to another country.
There are plenty of problems with obama that arise from his own adult choices, this is a genuine non-starter.
His mother was not qualified to give him US citizenship, per the laws on the books at the time. I don’t have the exact law to quote you now, but someone will, or I will later.
My memory paraphrases it something like: A child of a US citizen will be a US citizen when born outside of the United states provided that the mother has lived at least 10 years in the States, 5 of which have to be after the age of 14. Since Ann was only 18 when BHO was born, she couldn’t have lived 5 years in the US after age 14, she would have to have been 19. Thus she can’t pass citizenship to BHO.
I think that most middle of the road independents do understand dual citizenship, at least to the level where they will wonder why he is loyal to 2 countries. I firmly believe that most Americans want a candidate who has 100% loyalty to one, and only one, country ... the USA.
Let’s get this over - show us the birth certificate!!!!
As others have said, this is a non-issue on par with Palins hairdresser.
I totally disagree, there is ample reason to conclude that this man might have strong feelings of loyalty to another country of which he was a citizen in the past. This is NOT minor, it should disqualify him from the presidency.
In one of those links there is a copy of his birth certificate posted. Was that a fake? I thought I heard that.
Well, I guess we will have to disagree on this. I form my opinion by being part of focus groups on political advertisements in 2008.
By the way, you have a cool profession! Don't you wish your kids would listen to your instructions as well as your computer listens to your instructions.
And you are missing the point that, to the MSM, everything McCain or Palin do is a MAJOR issue. The point is that they won't mention this (like his middle name) or do any investigative research into his past. For Palin they are looking for dirt everywhere. They even recently had an interview with the woman who beat her in the Miss Alaska pageant who is African-American and voting for Obama ... yeah there's a breaking news story.
This is the key issue that may pop up.
Barry Soetoro, Barry Dunham, etc., (aka [Hussein] Obama)

Lawsuit questions [Hussein] Obama’s eligibility for office: citizenship claim at issue.
Jennifer Haberkorn THE WASHINGTON TIMES
Thursday, August 28, 2008
The suit, filed in U.S. District Court in Philadelphia last week, also names the Democratic National Committee and the Federal Election Commission and says Mr. [Hussein] Obama´s mother went to Kenya late in her pregnancy and ended up giving birth there. It also claims that later in life, Mr. [Hussein] Obama declared himself a citizen of Indonesia.
The DNC was served at 12:00 p.m. and Senator [Hussein] Obama was served at 1:00 p.m. The U.S. Attorneys Office accepted service on behalf of the Federal Elections Committee (FEC) on or about August 22, 2008.
The [Hussein] Obama campaign has firmly said the Illinois Democrat is a natural-born citizen. Last month, the campaign posted on Mr. [Hussein] Obama’s Web site a copy of his “certification of live birth.” It says he was born in Honolulu on Aug. 4, 1961, two years after Hawaii was named the 50th state. The Birth Certificate published by [Hussein] Obama on his campaign website (still there, by the way) and distributed to the media, was forged because the real BC on file is in the name Soetoro, an identity he apparently wanted to hide from the American people.
Hussein Obama’s Indonesian School record lists him as a citizen of Indonesia, not the United States & with last name “Soetoro”:
**did you people notice his “religion” on those documents?.... oh boy...., those moderate muslims HATE apostates**
Forensic analysis of [Hussein] Obama’s birth certificate:
Soetoro divorce docket:
The Docket shows when Stanley Ann Soetoro filed for divorce against Lolo Soetoro. The marriage is important because bases on the laws at the time, it affects [Hussein] Obama’s citizenship and likely caused him to be an Indonesian citizen and no longer an American citizen. The divorce decree proves that the marriage existed.
Obama failed to list other names he has used on his Illinois ARC registration (i.e. perjury; he signed it under oath [...oath to Allah?...]):
Dual/Other Citizenship [Hussein] Obama (?):
Article II of the Constitution requires to have only one, The United States of America — natural born.
Reports exist that [Hussein] Obama had traveled to Pakistan in 1981 on an Indonesian Passport (one must be a citizen of Indonesia to obtain an Indonesian Passort).
These are indeed troubling issues. Not only that, but there is a concerted effort to conceal Hussein Obama’s documents from the general public.

Back when the Rev Wright was in the news everyday, Drudge never really covered it.
I thought that strange.
And that's the fun of being here, isn't it =)
By the way, you have a cool profession! Don't you wish your kids would listen to your instructions as well as your computer listens to your instructions
Thanks and a very good point!
OK, if true that would mean that until he was 18 Obama had dual citizenship. So?
I predict that neither Drudge nor Fox and Friends will have anything to do with this. Anyone want to bet?
And if Obama currently held dual citizenship you might be rights. But he doesn't.
Maybe, but at least it should be investigated which seems to be the point some of the people here are missing. Ignoring it is basically covering it up. The question is WHY won't they look into this, and we all know the answer to that.
There is no credible evidence that Obama was born anywhere other than Hawaii.
The man would be a disaster as President, but he does meet the Constitutional requirements for the office.
You know you'd be a lot more convincing if you could produce a shred of evidence indicating he was born in Kenya.
