News Flash!!: Obama’s campaign offers $3-million to API for Michelle Obama tape set to air on FNC

News Flash!!: Obama’s campaign manager offers 3 million dollars to API in connection with Michelle Obama tape to be aired by Fox News Network

Posted by africanpress on October 29, 2008

Six hours after the release of information by API on the planned broadcast by Fox News Network of the Michelle Obama tape, in accordance with an agreement that has been reached between API and Fox News Network, API was contacted by Obama’s Campaign Manager.

Those who are close to the democratic presidential candidate must be desperate to win the elections no matter what, otherwise they would not have taken such bold step to contact API with an offer of a bribe in order to stop the airing of the tape.

Obama’s campaign manager contacted API by telephone and email offering 3 million US dollars followed with a request to API to cancel the deal with Fox News Network.

API has now taken a decision to contact the nearest American Embassy as soon as possible in order to report the case and hand over the evidence for investigative purposes.

OK, if this is real, this is BREAKING NEWS.

Supposedly, the audio is set to air on Fox News Channel after Obama's infomercial for maximum impact and to force Obama to make another national address after this story was to break.

We shall see!

This so-called "tape" has yet to be seen or heard.

Call me a doubting Thomas, but they have been talking about this "tape" for several months now.

haha...that’s so true, but for some reason I feel we’re going to be left with nothing but a cold shower.

If this is real, it will have a major impact on all News outlets in this country. It will finally expose a massive cover up and bring Fox News and API to the forefront and show how truth in journalism should be.

The old saying “if it’s too good to be true it probably isn’t”.

David Axelrod, strategist in Barack Obama’s campaign said he feared a comeback by Republican McCain. ‘’Our nightmare is that in the end the huge consensus that Obama has gained will not transform into votes’’.

Tape?

What exactly is on this tape that is supposedly so damaging? I mean I truly pray it is but up to now most so-called bombshells have fizzled.

Somehow I think Mr. Korir and the “tapes” are going to disapear from the public scene soon. That was entertaining.

From his own article comments-

“October 29, 2008 at 8:59 am
Dear readers who care and also to those who think this is a game but have been on this site:

I love you all and i think it is time I tell you the following incase something was to happen to me:

1. The whole thing about the Michelle Obama tape is very true
2. The whole thing about the 3 million attempt bribe is true

I solemnly swear to the above and I do it now incase something was to happen to me.

Greetings and may God bless you all one way or another.

I will soon take some refuge somewhere

Chief Editor Korir”

I hope the Chief Editor has made plenty of duplicates and sent them to various places, including an ftp version on a Linux server in Finland or something.

Most curious is why he hasn’t simply uploaded the audio onto the website to be downloaded, listened to, and shared by millions. Let the genie out of the bottle and you don’t have to worry about anyone stealing the bottle.

“We need something”

What you patriots need is to get off your butts and get out the Republican voters. Sitting around hoping for a magic bullet is off focus.

http://africanpress.wordpress.com/2008/10/15/shocking-development-mrs-obama-decides-enough-is-enough-my-husband-was-born-in-hawaii-and-adopted-by-his-step-father-does-that-make-him-unpatriotic-she-asks-on-a-direct-telephone-to-api/

““African press International is supposed to support Africans and African-American view,” and she went to state that, “it is strange that API has chosen to support the racists against my husband. There is no shame in being adopted by a step father. All dirt has been thrown onto my husband’s face and yet he loves this country. My husband and I know that there is no law that will stop him from becoming the president, just because some American white racists are bringing up the issue of my husband’s adoption by His step father. The important thing here is where my husband’s heart is at the moment. I can tell the American people that My husband loves this country and his adoption never changed his love for this country. He was born in Hawaii, yes, and that gives him all the right to be an American citizen even though he was adopted by a foreigner; says Michelle Obama on telefon to API.”

This is a very interesting turn of events. The American man Dr Corsi was recently reported to have been arrested in Kenya because there was fear that he might reveal information on Obama when he wanted to hold a press conference in Nairobi.

The question now is why he was arrested and who ordered his arrest. Was Obama’s hand in this in any way? We will never know the truth but what is clear is that Dr Corsi was seen as a threat while in Kenya.

When API asked Mrs Obama to comment on why Dr Corsi was arrested by the Kenyan government and whether she thought Kenya’s Prime Minister Mr Raila Odinga was involved in Dr Corsi’s arrest, she got irritated and and simply told API not to dig that which will support evil people who are out to stop her husband from getting the presidency.

When asked who she was referring to as the evil people, she stated that she was not going to elaborate much on that but that many conservative white people and even some African Americans were against her husband, but that this group of blacks were simply doing so because of envy.

On Farakhan and his ministry, Mrs Obama told API that it was unfortunate that Mr Farakhan came out the way he did supporting her husband openly before the elections was over. That was not wholehearted support but one that was calculated to convince the American people that my husband will support the growth of muslim faith if he became the president, adding “even if my husband was able to prove that he is not a Muslim, he will not be believed by those who have come out strongly to destroy his chances of being the next President. Do real people expect someone to deny a religion when 80 percent of his relatives are Muslims?; Mrs Obama asked.

Mrs Obama asked API to write a good story about her husband and that will earn API an invitation to the innoguration ceremony when, as she put it , her husband will be installed as the next President of the United States of America next year.”

Any lawyers here? API would seal their fate if they sold this to Axlerod and the fellow communist travelers.

Hush money! Nixon was a saint compared to this pond scum.

Obama is looking like a third world dictator.! Our country
is in real danger of a communist coup.

Two things will now happen.

Turnout Scenario 1: We never hear from this fraud again.
Turnout Scenario 2: He will claim $3,000,000 is a lot of money where he comes from and he can’t in good conscience refuse it. Unless of course he could raise an equal amount in donations from us.

I beg your pardon, sir. I have been working non-stop every day, sometimes 6-8 hours getting the word out- without too much help from our passive candidate.
Is it too much to hope for a little miracle here?
