Skip to comments.HYMAN: Obama's Kenya ghosts
Posted on 10/12/2008 2:24:33 AM PDT by JohnHuang2
About 50 parishioners were locked into the Assemblies of God church before it was set ablaze. They were mostly women and children. Those who tried to flee were hacked to death by machete-wielding members of a mob numbering 2,000.
The 2008 New Year Day atrocity in the Kenyan village Eldoret, about 185 miles northwest of Nairobi, had all the markings of the Rwanda genocide of a decade earlier.
By mid-February 2008, more than 1,500 Kenyans were killed. Many were slain by machete-armed attackers. More than 500,000 were displaced by the religious strife. Villages lay in ruin. Many of the atrocities were perpetrated by Muslims against Christians.
The violence was led by supporters of Raila Odinga, the opposition leader who lost the Dec. 27, 2007, presidential election by more than 230,000 votes. Odinga supporters began the genocide hours after the final election results were announced Dec. 30. Mr. Odinga was a member of Parliament representing an area in western Kenya, heavily populated by the Luo tribe, and the birthplace of Barack Obama's father.

Does Obama have any normal friends -- someone who isn't a terrorist, or racist preacher, or convicted felon or perpetrator of massive voter fraud?
Obama's community organizer chums at ACORN are now under criminal investigation in 11 states for engaging in staggering amounts of community organizing in the form of voter fraud and other patriotic activities on Obama's behalf. ACORN's "voter-registration" drive has assured voter fraud in Pennsylvania, Florida, Ohio, Colorado, Indiana, Wisconsin, North Carolina, Missouri, Michigan, Texas, Nevada, etc. Half of ACORN's voter registrations nationwide are phony. But bringing attention to this is called 'voter suppression' and 'hating poor people', according to hysterical liberals.
In Nevada, state officials who hate poor people raided ACORN's office this week after reports that its workers were falsifying forms with phony names and fake addresses out of love for poor people. Falsifying forms and submitting fake information amounts to 'preventing voter suppression', if you listen to the mindless blather from libbies.
It turns out that ACORN is so crooked, the press is starting to call the group 'controversial'! In fact, ACORN is so crawling with fraudsters, it gets funding from Congress.
Some of the latest:
-- In Nevada, ACORN used felons -- some of them convicted of identity theft -- to help in its voter-registration efforts. Nevada Secretary of State, Ross Miller, noted that some of the registration forms "were fraudulent; we basically had the starting lineup for the Dallas Cowboys." Frank Rich swiftly responded that the Dallas Cowboys just wanted to be able to vote in Nevada.
-- According to its Federal Elections Commission filings, the Obama campaign admits it paid Citizen Service Inc. over $832,000 within the last year. It turns out that ACORN has the same board of directors as Citizen Service. For libbies reading this, this means CS is a front group for ACORN. The Obama campaign's FEC report falsely claims CS's get-out-the-vote efforts were just "staging and lighting". Nothing to see here, move along.
-- The New York Post reports about an Ohio man who got paid off in cash and cigarettes by ACORN for registering to vote over 72 times during a period of 18 months. That's a fourth-degree felony in Ohio, punishable by a year in the slammer. The Post mentions another citizen named Lateala Goins who said she had registered to vote many times. "You can tell them [ACORN canvassers] you're registered as many times as you want -- they do not care," she said. ACORN voter fraud in Ohio is so massive, the New York Times even called it . . . "problematic".
-- In Connecticut, the State Elections Enforcement Commission is now investigating ACORN after reports that it submitted registration cards filled with fake information in Bridgeport. Many were duplicates. In one case, a seven-year-old girl was listed on the voter card as a 27-year-old. Armed with this knowledge, Connecticut ACORN honcho Emeline Bravo Blackwood said she's "proud" of the work they're doing.
-- In North Carolina, ACORN is turning in loads of fake voter registration forms, with the same names popping up many times. In one case, a 14-year-old signed up.
-- In Missouri, "officials are sifting through possibly hundreds of questionable or duplicate voter-registration forms submitted by" ACORN, the AP acknowledges. The fraudulent registration forms, with hundreds of phony addresses, unverifiable driver's licenses, unverifiable Social Security numbers "were bogging down work Wednesday, the final day Missourians could register to vote." In response, ACORN said "we're proud to be out there doing the patriotic thing."
-- In Houston County, Texas, 40 percent of the 27,000 registration cards gathered by ACORN from January through July have been rejected or placed in limbo pending the gathering of more information," such as whether Clark Kent and Lois Lane submitted valid Social Security numbers. Houston County hates poor people!
-- In Indiana, about 2,500 fraudulent voter registrations have been filed by ACORN in the last two weeks alone, maybe as many as 5,100. In a hint of possible problems, some of the new voters were dead when they signed up. A restaurant chain called "Jimmy Johns" tried to sign up as a voter! Hundreds of applications were apparently signed by one person. Secretary of State Todd Rokita said he's turning over the evidence he's uncovered to Indiana's Attorney General, since Attorney Generals hate poor people too.
Obama's ACORN pals are so stupid, they didn't think the garbage-truckloads of bogus registrations might be tracked back to them. They must've been trained by Odumbo. Oh wait -- they were. Obama's in deep with the group, having been their trial lawyer. In the mid-'90s, he represented them in a lawsuit against the state of Illinois for allegedly not implementing the Motor Voter law, designed to make it easier for Mary Poppins and Dick Tracy to register. Obama also got gigs on the ACORN-linked boards of the Joyce Foundation and Woods Fund, both of which shoveled big bucks to ACORN's Chicago branch.
In a total shock, ACORN endorsed Obama for president. On his official website, Obama touts the endorsement, saying "I've been fighting alongside ACORN on issues that you care about my entire career" -- such as bringing ACORN's advanced quality-control system to Washington! On his official website, Obama also says he has no connection to ACORN. Documents showing Obama palling around with ACORN and working closely with its voter-registration drive have magically vanished from his website.
Pundits keep telling themselves Obama's a lock, election's in the bag, but the surge in fraudulent voter registrations suggests the opposite. You don't try to steal an election if you think you've got it all sewed up.
My Two Cents...
YES! Odinga has made it to the Washington Times!
There’s a Schmidt Storm a brewing.
Good news over here, nuclear assault on Obama, up to 400 Million to be spent by the time the election gets here.
Is this the "hope for change" as promised by Hussein?
Clinging to their religion until the bitter end. /s
I have so been praying for this to hit the fan, Hannity will have Corsi on tomorrow, hopefully showing part of the video showing Odinga with obama, hopefully Glenn will pick it up after that then Rush.
Maybe Oreily will have the b-lls to show it, Dobbs is usually fair, so maybe it will get the coverage it needs.
From the article:
***Mr. Obama’s judgment is seriously called into question when he backs an official with troubling ties to Muslim extremists and whose supporters practice ethnic cleansing and genocide. It was Islamic extremists in Kenya who bombed the U.S. Embassy in 1998, killing more than 200 and injuring thousands. None of this has dissuaded Mr. Obama from maintaining disturbing loyalties.***

Light your torches, grab your pitchforks, and tell the MSM what America is REALLY thinking about. MAKE it the news. Your email account is your weapon, and this is war. So lock and load, and use your electronic Liberty Teeth! Help Sarahcuda, and FReep the MSM!
Mr. Odinga and Mr. Obama were nearly inseparable throughout Mr. Obama's six-day stay....
Can you feel the love...The end of the article talks about aligning with Muslim extremists. Uh, sorry. The intentions of Muslim leadership noted above are "mainstream". To create a dhimmi status of the Christians. Pathetic. And that Marxist loving Muslim hugging President in waiting gets another pass.
OMG, this needs to be in breaking! Everyone needs to see this!
Obie: is NOT the Odinga I use to know...
MUST SEE VIDEO OF OBAMA IN KENYA CAMPAIGNING FOR ODINGA!!!
2 min version:
“Barack Obama and Raila Odinga — Did the Illinois senator violate the Logan Act in campaigning for his ‘genocidist’ cousin’s bid for the Kenyan presidency?”
8 minute version:
“Barack Obama & Raila Odinga”
I think he has violated the Logan Act aiding and abetting his corrupt cousin, but he’s also tried to persuade Maliki to delay the agreement to withdraw the military presence in Iraq until he is crown.
