Article in Nairobi Paper June 2004 - Barack born in Africa
American Daughter ^ | Thursday, October 15th, 2009 | Nancy Matthis

Posted on 10/14/2009 10:52:50 PM PDT by Earl Voak

An ongoing poll by AOL News currently shows that 58% of Americans have doubts about Obama’s citizenship. The poll was started on July 28 and continues — you can go here to vote. And lest you think that this survey is being conducted in a very anti-Obama venue, the title of the article is Birthers, Beer and Stuck on ‘Stupidly’ — it is an environment contemptuous of skeptics. So we can conclude that the results of their poll are not what they were hoping for.

A scant five years ago, Barack Obama was a little known Illinois state politician, aspiring to move up to the United States Senate. Undoubtedly, the Marxist handlers behind this Manchurian candidate had long range plans to capture the US presidency since he was groomed as a youth by Frank Marshall Davis. But the general public and the press were not privy to this information.

At that time, there would have been no reason to fabricate a story about Obama’s birth that would disqualify him for the highest US office. This would be especially true for an African paper that was simply proud of their native son. So it is reasonable to take the press clippings of the day at face value. The following item has been on the web all along, but apparently did not get much attention. It is a June 2004 article from the online version of the East African Standard, an English-language paper published in Nairobi, Kenya, titled Kenyan-born Obama all set for US Senate. Click on the image to pop up a full size version of the article, which we captured from screenshots of the paper. Depending on your browser, you may need to click the pop-up image again with your “zoom tool” — a little magnifying glass icon.

June 2004 article in East African Standard

Another African paper, Modern Ghana, published an article this past July on the occasion of Obama’s trip to Africa — History Beckons - As Prez Obama Arrives Tomorrow. Originally, the article contained the following sentence:

For Ghana, Obama’s visit will be a celebration of another milestone in African history as it hosts the first-ever African-American President on this presidential visit to the continent of his birth.

Responding to external pressure, the paper eventually inserted the possessive “father’s” into the sentence, so that it now reads:

For Ghana, Obama’s visit will be a celebration of another milestone in African history as it hosts the first-ever African-American President on this presidential visit to the continent of his father’s birth.

There are numerous assertions that Barack Obama was born on August 4, 1961 at the Coast General Hospital in Mombasa. The situation was not helped by an interview after the election last November with Kenyan Ambassador to the United States, Peter Ogego, conducted by the hosts of the Mike In The Morning talk radio show on WRIF in Detroit, Michigan.

Host: One more quick question — President-elect Obama’s birthplace over in Kenya — is that going to be a national spot to go visit where he was born?

Ambassador:It’s already an assumption. His paternal grandmother is still alive.

Host: But his birthplace, they’ll put up a marker there?

Ambassador: It’s already well-known…

YouTube of interview

The socialistic Democrats presently controlling the US government and the liberal mainstream media dismiss those who question Obama’s citizenship as irrational “birthers,” “conspiracy theorists,” and “stuck on stupid.” But given the numerous indicators extant, it is a perfectly legitimate question to ask.

During last year’s presidential campaign, the issue of eligibility arose regarding both candidates. John McCain immediately made his original birth certificate available. Barack Obama only made public a state certificate that affirmed his birth was registered in Hawaii, which could have been the result of a foreign birth. He has never shown the original, or “vault copy,” of his birth record.

Not only that, he has spent big bucks on lawyers to prevent anyone from seeing the vault copy of his birth record by having his records sealed. That makes no sense at all, unless he has something to hide. Given the large numbers of constituents who are concerned, any responsible public servant would make the original records available to dispel their worries. (It is an easy thing to do — for heaven’s sake, I just did it myself to renew my Virginia driver’s license.)

So, whatever the truth may be about the status of Obama’s citizenship, there are some facts that are certain based on behavior that is public. Barack Obama is concealing some piece of information, and Barack Obama does not care about the concerns of a large number of Americans.

Common sense has told us from the start that he’s hiding something. If he’s upright why can’t he just bring out his bc, college records and passportand show the world?

so far... we have:

1. 0bama’s paternal grandmother stating she was at his birth in kenya

2. a phony jpg posted to a website by an unknown person

3. an AP article from 2004 stating he is kenyan born

4. 0bama himself having spent $1m to keep anyone from obtaining his long form birth certificate

the above is ALL we have to date. without further proof, you are left to draw the conclusion that 0bama was not born in the US

You know, that right! It's the old what's right is right and what's wrong is wrong. It's not rocket science. It's just plain wrong that our President has to seal his records and be so secretive about his past. If he has to hide things, then there's something to hide. Since he's our CIC, I think he owes it to the American people to "show us all" or resign. Otherwise he's a national security risk. Simple as that. . .

America should be aghast that all were asleep at the wheel when this man with the enigmatic past came sailing towards the White House.

To be fair, nobody anticipated an Obama-type problem. All candidates to date have been safely of the kind that we would expect to be born in the USA. There is one other obscure president (Van Buren IIRC) who was so born, but who was also born a British subject, and so did not qualify under rules observed at the time as natural born. He squeaked in and out before anyone knew.

Anyhow fool us once shame on you, fool us twice shame on us! It should be required that before Obama even goes back on the ballot that he show his bona fides. And same for all other presidential candidates.

“Thursday, August 24, 2006”

Except by this time, the cover story was Obama was born in Hawaii. Obama was having White House thoughts dancing in his brain.

Kenya celebrates Obama win

Hmm... No longer mentioning Obama being born in Kenya. Were they already scrubbing this?

Isn't it a little dishonest to shout from the rooftops the one article from this source where the reporter apparently got his facts all muddled up while at the same time ignoring the countless other articles from this same source that retracted the error?

I don’t know who unearthed this article, but I had 5 links to it in my email this AM.

4. 0bama himself having spent $1m to keep anyone from obtaining his long form birth certificate

More money! — plus, he now has Civil Service, taxpayer-funded, members of the Justice Department attorneys illegally representing him.

No one says a word.

A retraction would include citing the source of the error. None of the references you posted cited the June 2004 article you claim to be in error.

Mmm, mmm, mmm, Barack He’s-so-Vain-Hussein Obama,
Has less documentation than any random South American llama.

“D.C. Tech Official Is Accused of Bribery(Birth Certificate Forgery)
A D.C. government official and a business executive were arrested yesterday on bribery
charges involving city technology contracts that included "ghost" workers and
kickbacks, federal authorities said. Until recently, the technology office was headed
by Vivek Kundra, who has taken a job as President Obama's chief information officer.
A White House official confirmed last night that Kundra has taken a leave of absence.
“Yusuf Acar, 40, who has worked in the technology office since 2004, was charged with
bribery, conspiracy, money laundering and conflict of interest.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Thomas Hibarger told a federal judge that Acar is a flight risk because agents
seized $70,000 in cash in his house and because in recorded conversations, he boasted that he could easily flee to his native Turkey.
Acar also told the informant that he could use
computers to create fake D.C. birth certificates
, Hibarger said. “

People will be screaming bloody murder if he doesn't show all documents next time. I honestly don't think he will get away with it.

We will demand, and get our Candidates Birth Certificate and passport records, military and college records. They will get posted. Then the pressure will build to see his.

His lack of original documents will be staggering. People will get nasty if he refuses to comply.

This is especially true since Obama benefited greatly from the release of information from Jack Ryan’s divorce proceedings.

This reminds me of Nixon and the tapes - except that the media is not hounding Obama to insanity over the issue, but doing the exact opposite by not investigating at all.

AOL poll: “Do you think questions surrounding Obama’s birthplace will ever end?” I hate airhead questions like this! First, Obamabots will answer no and so will “birthers,” so why ask? I answered “yes,” which is the correct answer. Barry’s records will all be revealed, voluntarily or involuntarily, sooner or later, and the questions will end. “Nothing is covered up that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known” (Luke 12:2).

Here's Another One

By Nancy Matthis | Thursday, October 15th, 2009 at 2:27 pm

Articles describing Barack Obama as "Kenyan-born" were quite prevalent until his handlers began scrubbing them. Here's an article from National Public Radio as recently as October 2008 -- Trial and Triumph: Stories Out Of Africa:
October 9, 2008

Ofeibea Quist-Arcton, NPR's Africa-based correspondent, tells why her beat has proved one of the most interesting this year.

She discusses the stories that have been painful and devastating for many nations on the continent such as the violent political fights that have led to power-sharing deals.

She also describes the stories that have been exciting, including the U.S. presidential race of Kenyan-born Sen. Barack Obama.
And since we now know that the Obots are busy scrubbing the World Wide Web of clues to Barack Obama's possible ineligibility to be the US president, here's our saved screenshot. Click the picture to pop up the image. You may have to click the pop-up image again with your "zoom tool," a small magnifying glass icon, to see the full size web page.

Weren't his opponent's records sealed and somehow they leaked ? Aren't there enough deep pockets in the Conservative movement, or even people that want to know about this masked marvel, to buy this information?

Was it ever made public how the Ryan leak happened?

I have not read all the replies on the thread but it seems to me, anymore, the only way we can save our nation and our constitution is to get those records and get this fraud out of the People's House and into the Big House along with the slobbering liberal democrats.
With all the crazy things going on in an effort to promote one world order or one world govt..it won't amaze me in the least to see larger Tea Parties of We The People march down the mall and in front of the WH with pitch forks, shovels, base ball bats, umbrellas, canes, crutches, pipes, and how about rocks like the muzzies use..to beat our way into the houses of congress and pound some sense into this group of self appointed crown princes and princesses of America...hack butts and battle brands will be all the rage since guns and ammo are going to be in short supply...
