Kenya: 'I don't know' if Obama born in U.S.

Ambassador suggests question be put to American government

Posted: November 26, 2008 9:44 pm Eastern

By Chelsea Schilling © 2008 WorldNetDaily

Kenyan Ambassador Peter N.R.O. Ogego is saying he's "infuriated" by a radio program's efforts to "misquote" him on the subject of President-elect Barack Obama's birthplace – but he refused to confirm whether Obama was born in the United States.

In an exclusive interview with WND today, Ogego was specifically asked whether Obama is a natural-born U.S. citizen.

"I don't know," he said with a tone of irritation. "You should ask your government. I know his father is Kenyan."

He continued with a rhetorical question: "Obama is an American, isn't he?"

On Nov. 6, only two days after the election, Detroit radio talk-show hosts Mike Clark, Trudi Daniels and Marc Fellhauer on WRIF's "Mike In The Morning" called the Embassy of Kenya in Washington, D.C., to speak with Ambassador Ogego...

Let it go. You could present stone cold proof that Obama was born on the planet Mars and no court in this "Nation of Laws" would bat an eye before dismissing you to the outer darkness.

I wish it were otherwise but that's the fact of the matter.

I must sadly agree with you. We would have better luck obtaining an acquittal and dismissal of all charges in one of Joe Stalin's infamous show trials than to hope that some damn Court in our former Republic will actually step up to the plate and direct that Comrade 0bama prove his bonafides to serve as POTUS.

We are now in the post-Republic era of the new United Soviet Socialist States of America.

Well then let's just say that all of us here want the courts to actually go through the motions of doing it. What's the problem with that? Are we worried about wasting the money on court costs? We are at the point now where it's not just a matter of the courts not 'bothering' with this, they are actively refusing to look into something that could have huge ramifications to our country. Their refusal is just making me more suspicious.

Sadly, you are likely right. The Constitution is dying and once it's dead things we be resolved 1860s style.

If this is true, then why are we allowing this guy to get a free ride.

Remember GWB in 2000 and the liberals with their bumper stickers saying Jan 20, 2004, I didn't vote for him - he's not my president, no mandate, he stole the office...

This has been non-stop for the past 8 years. GWB has been under constant attack from the liberals.

Obama deserves the same. Every move this president(?) makes should be labeled a “his failed policy”. every mistake should be cheered, every gaff should be an indication about how he is nothing more that MSM idiot.

Why allow this Marxist to deserve more that GWB received while GWB fought to save this country from terrorist. Osama is like Clinton. He will turn the war on terror into a police action.

BHO is a fraud, and a thug, he bought the office with illegal donations, Acorn fraud, media propaganda, stupid voters and constitutional abuse. Now we are finding out he should not even be in the office. We need to give him 4 years of what he deserves. Let him depart the office as the complete disgrace that he is.

No, we won't. And neither should any patriotic American.

You could present stone cold proof that Obama was born on the planet Mars and no court in this "Nation of Laws" would bat an eye before dismissing you to the outer darkness.

If you're so convinced of that, then what recourse are you willing to take to defend the liberties bestowed upon you by better men, who died in the cause of freedom?

I have no doubt that Obama wasn’t born in Hawaii. But we are all fooling ourselves if we think this is going to go anywhere. The MSM controls our fate, and they won’t touch this issue, and if they did, it would be to cover for the chosen one. Get used to it, and perhaps learn to duck and cover.

Very very good point Windflier!

People want to shrug their shoulders and say “It’s what the people want”, or “It wouldn’t matter anyway”. So every man who died protecting that ONE DOCUMENT died for nothing? Died for no good reason?

Some things are worth fighting for the principle of it.

If he would show his birth certificate to someone besides FACTCHECK.ORG, we would go away.

Heck, I don’t even have to see it. If members of the SCOTUS sees it, the official long form, I will be satisfied and let it go. But not until then. No matter how much tinfoil people think I need.

They destroyed George Bush. He was a human sacrifice-—not perfect, ( show me a president who was) but I know he is courageous and a decent man.

The sheer fact that the vile, liberal press took him apart bit by bit during wartime —essentially raising enemy morale—means we have officially become an amoral country.

The liberals practice vile hypocrisy, unchecked they will be our undoing.

They have killed Bush—death by a thousand cuts.

I’m going to make a sticker incorporating “President Mombasa”, somehow.

Regardless of what happens, I will not “drop” this issue.

If I had to show an original birth certificate just to get put on my husband’s state employee health insurance, that one should have show his to rule the country.

NOTICE how the RATS are really pushing OsAMA to the forefront even before W is out. They are selling the notion that OsAMA is already ACTING president AT THIS MOMENT!! Something is amidst here and it smell BAD! NOT even Clinton did what OsAMA’s team is doing to Sr. Bush. The way OsAMA’s team is acting right now it is very suspicious... I pray B.C. rumors are true!!

If Obama were born in the U.S., how could the Kenyan Ambassador confirm it?

Yes, of course—it is all carefully calculated.

Obama’s “transition team” is putting Obama so in our faces ( 3 press conferences in 3 days) to make sure he is as ‘dug in’ as possible in the minds of the people.

In the event something cataclysmic “broke loose” like the BC, they count on the people to be “attached” to Obama paternalistically, identify with him as their “leader”—and revolt against any undoing of him.

Psychological/behavioral tactics...they pandered and used them throughout the campaign. They do nothing without ruthless cunning.

This will be the most veiled administration ever.

People want to shrug their shoulders and say “It’s what the people want”, or “It wouldn’t matter anyway”. So every man who died protecting that ONE DOCUMENT died for nothing?

Those good men will have only died for nothing, if we, their descendants stand silent, and refuse to defend the freedoms of our descendants, the way those brave patriots of yesteryear did for us.

In that case, we will have lived for nothing, and will suffer as accursed and empty souls, forevermore.

Americans of good conscience need to understand that we are dangerously close to entering a time of real fascism and totalitarian government.

The Obamanation is everything we have claimed and suspected it to be. This isn't some paranoid frenzy, or delusion on our part. They have proven their intent in word and in deed.

If history is allowed to repeat itself, and we go down the path it clearly predicts, then someone in some future time will peruse the words recorded on this website, and will realize that in the last days, there were some who saw it coming.

When my now adult daughter turned 16, I had to drive to her birthplace in WVA, from Ohio, to get a original of her birth certificate, so she could get her driver's license.

It’s for the tinfoil hat crowd.

Really? Kindly explain then, why such a brilliant, charismatic and eloquent guy like 0bama would choose to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars, waste hours, days and weeks, engage in lies, forgery and fraud, when he could put the entire controversy to rest with a $12 fee paid to the State of Hawaii? Perhaps you could educate us as to why, after describing the contents of his birth certificate in his writings, and authorizing the posting of an alleged copy of said certificate online for all the world to see, that 0bama should have any realistic expectation of 'privacy' when it comes to disclosing the original 'vault' copy of his birth certificate, now under seal by the Governor of Hawaii?

Take all the time you want.

LOL. You guys are speaking two different languages and speaking past each other. He is speaking how it is not how he would like it to be.

Nothing will happen on this. However I also believe we must never give up pushing this issue - even after he is sworn in. We should make as much noise as possible. Those two statements are not incompatible BTW.

As far as I am concerned he is guilty until he proves where he was born.

Not quite sure what your point is, but I voted for McCain/Palin, so again, my conscience is clear. I can't draw any line, I'm just a decent law abiding citizen. I did my part on election day, did you?

But he was able to deceive half the country with the help of the drive-by media-—people have no idea what they have done...it is sad but we have to keep our faith in God, we will be fine.

I would sincerely hope that my communication to him ran straight to target. It's not like me to miss.

And, for your information, I got what he said clearly. His aim is also true, though I disagree with what he's saying.

I also got the fact that he wishes things were otherwise, so I know that he's not anything other than resigned to a future that he, and we, are perfectly capable of thwarting.

What I rail against here is the defeatist mindset, which postulates that we are powerless to affect our own future, and that "all is lost", "there's nothing that can change it now", "it's over", "live with it", etc.

Those things will certainly become reality if we all succumb to that mindset and go into agreement with them.

Yes, there is a chance that our government will violate its bedrock charter and allow Obama to assume the Presidency because, well, he wants it.

For now, that's simply a possible outcome. But it is an absolutely assured outcome, if every patriotic American falls into the apathy I've seen expressed here by some.

What? "Let it go."? I don't think so. If this Constitutional requirement is tossed out the window, then I'm (we're) going to assume the Constitutional (amendment) requirement that we pay an income tax is also thrown out the window. Fair is fair. He doesn't have to be natural-born; I don't have to support his government. It stands to reason.
