Kenyan Government Imposes Gag Order On Obama Family
WorldNetDaily ^ | 12/20/08

Posted on 12/21/2008 12:01:55 PM PST by NoGrayZone

The Kenyan government has barred unapproved contacts between the media and President-elect Barack Obama's extended family.

Family members will be required to receive permission from the government before making any public statements about their famous relative, according to the Nairobi Star.

"We are doing this because we want to ensure better flow of information," Athman Said, an under-secretary in the Ministry of Heritage, told the Obama family in Kogelo.

"The government has decided that you should inform its officers who will be based here if you want to address the media."

I'm sure the 0bama campaign bought a huge cone of silence in Kenya.

Pretty sure this was posted a couple of days ago. But it’s worth a second look anyhow, just to know how our MSM is going to be operating for the next four years. Cover, defend, protect, rinse, repeat.

“We are doing this because we want to ensure better flow of information,”

“We are doing this to ensure only the approved communication” is more like it.

They are doing this because Barack Obama was born in Kenya and they are afraid of that information leaking out.

Barack Obama's 'lost' brother found in Kenya


George Hussein Onyango Obama,
Senator Barack Obama's long lost
brother was tracked down living in
a hut on the outskirts of Nairobi

Senator Barack Obama's long lost brother has been tracked down for the first time living in a shanty town in Kenya, reports claimed

Mr Obama, 26, the youngest of the presidential candidate's half-brothers, spoke for the first time about his life, which could not be more different than that of the Democratic contender.

"No-one knows who I am", he told the magazine, before claiming: "I live here on less than a dollar a month."

You didn’t mess up.

A similar article was posted with a different title which makes a search almost impossible.

This is an important article and needs to be repeated. I *thought* someone pinged me; after looking back through pings, here’s the old one, crosslinked for reference:

I don’t see any reason for forgetting this until Obama has proven his citizenship. It is a Constitutional question that is before the Supreme Court right now, and they could settle it long before Obama is due to be sworn in, but we have become a nation of PC cowards.

Uh, no pal, you've got it all wrong. It's because you are afraid someone else is going to tell the truth about Kenya's favorite son, Obamessiah. His socialist cousin, 'Odingy One' uses his military to stifle free speech, just like Obamessiah wants to use his "civilian security force" for. To curb our free speech.............among other things, like redistribution of our wealth, gun confiscation, etc! Them boys sure do like being dictators.

Translated that means "Barry O' is indeed a citizen of Kenya, having been born here 4 August 1961." And they want to keep the family from repeating the truth about Barry O' so they're threatening the Kenyan relatives to shut up or Raila Odinga will "take care" of them.

If there is so much to cover up, something will leak out eventually. It may take some time, but something will come out.

Is it possible to email the Supremes? If so, it’s time to flood their boxes and voice mail systems like we did on the immigration situation.

I read on FR recently, that the best way to contact the Supremes is by US Snail Mail. An article I read said the Supremes either don’t accept faxes or emails from the general public, or they are too easy to ingnore or delete.

Sending old fashioned US Mail is the best way to contact them. I sent 8 letters in the weeks before the Philip Berg case conference. I did not save the address, but you can find it pretty fast in any search engine. FreeGards!

As many of us have noticed, Google seems to mysteriously be overlooking certain search keywords -- probably manipulation by Obots than a cover-up by Google itself. To compensate, I've been using WEBFERRET and similar PC-based search software to hit multiple search engines -- and I'm finding much better results.

In doing research, I'm going back and finding some harder-to-find photos -- perhaps they'll revive something we've seen in the past. Keep in mind that many of the descriptions of the photos is information fed by the Obama Campaign and, obviously, should be met with a level of skepticism.

My question is: besides reading the blogs and get outraged...have we seen, anywhere in the country, more than 4 people in front of the SCOTUS building?

Have we heard anything yet about US, we the people, making BIG noise like the jerks for prop 8?

Have we done anything else YET besides yelling at the SCOTUS - in the blogs - and filing and filing again and being denied over and over again? And being laughed at because WE are so ...polite...

Right now, I don’t see ANYTHING which could be loud enough to be picked up by the media. We are on the side of the law - right - guess what. That does not make any noise and it DOES NOT WORK! I am not saying that we should not be on the side of the law of course but right now the problem is: only the nutsjob are heard - the thugs...and they win - ALL THE TIME!

It seems that we cannot count on anyone but us to save this country and our Constitution.

So what’s next? Bend under marxism and hope that at least we will keep our blogs up and running???

Tell me...what’s next? Are we going to keep on blogging while our Constitution is being killed and nobody cares???

Our country is dying - Our America, The America of our Founding Fathers and what do we do since 2 years??? We blog - we are outraged - we file...right...impressive results indeed. In the meantime, the messiah, the marxist indonesian muslim wan!!! The “coup d’etat” HAPPENED and nothing seems to be able to stop him.

And...we blog...we are outraged...we file...

Wake me up when you’ll be ready to ACT!
