Skip to comments.AP declared Obama Kenyan-Born
Posted on 10/21/2009 3:01:23 AM PDT by Jet Jaguar
Kenyan-born US Senate hopeful, Barrack Obama, appeared set to take over the Illinois Senate seat after his main rival, Jack Ryan, dropped out of the race on Friday night amid a furor over lurid sex club allegations.
This report explains the context of the oft cited debate, between Obama and Keyes in the following Fall, in which Keyes faulted Obama for not being a natural born citizen, and in which Obama, by his quick retort, So what? I am running for Illinois Senator, not the presidency, Obama himself was putting out in 2004, that he was born in Kenya.
The allegations that horrified fellow Republicans and caused his once-promising candidacy to implode in four short days have given Obama a clear lead as Republicans struggled to fetch an alternative.
Ryans campaign began to crumble on Monday following the release of embarrassing records from his divorce. In the records, his ex-wife, Boston Public actress Jeri Ryan, said her former husband took her to kinky sex clubs in Paris, New York and New Orleans."Its clear to me that a vigorous debate on the issues most likely could not take place if I remain in the race," Ryan, 44, said in a statement. "What would take place, rather, is a brutal, scorched-earth campaign the kind of campaign that has turned off so many voters, the kind of politics I refuse to play."
Although Ryan disputed the allegations, saying he and his wife went to one avant-garde club in Paris and left because they felt uncomfortable, lashed out at the media and said it was "truly outrageous" that the Chicago Tribune got a judge to unseal the records.
The Republican choice will become an instant underdog in the campaign for the seat of retiring Republican Senator Peter Fitzgerald, since Obama held a wide lead even before the scandal broke.
"I feel for him actually," Obama told a Chicago TV station. "What hes gone through over the last three days I think is something you wouldnt wish on anybody."
The Republican state committee must now choose a replacement for Ryan, who had won in the primaries against seven contenders. Its task is complicated by the fact that Obama holds a comfortable lead in the polls and is widely regarded as a rising Democratic star.
The chairwoman of the Illinois Republican Party, Judy Topinka, said at a news conference, after Ryan withdrew, that Republicans would probably take several weeks to settle on a new candidate.
"Obviously, this is a bad week for our party and our state," she said.
As recently as Thursday, spokesmen for the Ryan campaign still insisted that Ryan would remain in the race. Ryan had defended himself saying, "Theres no breaking of any laws. Theres no breaking of any marriage laws. Theres no breaking of the Ten Commandments anywhere."
What a despicable, slimy, snake in the grass. Scumbag.
There have been several threads about this for the last few weeks.
Sadly, no one, especially the Obots and the MSM, give a flip about where he was born.
The Marxist agenda that half of America wants, and aided by the media, is all that matters now.
Sir Robert Thompson said it best - that Communist will use every conceivable trick to discredit their opposition - and once the their public image is destroyed - then kill them...in a nut shell, that’s exactly what 0bamam did, made sure no one contested him due tot he black mail material.
I wonder if those that supported him -if he had something on them as well...???
...and yet we are to ignore this - so that we can move ahead...into what???
If he and his associates knowingly ran him in violation of the Constitution and in knowing the damage it could do to our nation, then what else are they willing to do?
Obama is not a “Natural Born Citizen”, his father was never a US citizen.
And it’s very, very sad.
I grew up believing that America was the best and greatest country - and I still believe that. But with all our laws, technology, democracy, it’s so hard to believe that they’re getting away with this.
I guess I always thought if you broke the law, or tried to be slimy, you’d get caught and go to jail.
IMpeachment is for legitamate candidates who deserve being thrown out, UH-Bummer shouold just be given an eviction notice..Fake , Liar,dork in chief..
Why didn't anyone say anything?
If the choice is not appearing racist vs. enforcing the Constitution, the former will win out every time.

Out of Obama’s own mouth, “So what? I am running for Illinois Senator, not the presidency.
It would be a peculiar interpretation of the Fourteenth Amendment indeed to hold that someone “born ... in the United States,” and thereby a citizen from birth, is not “a natural born Citizen” because one parent held citizenship in a foreign state. (By definition, ever drafter of the Constitution had two parents who held citizenship in foreign states.)
If you or the author of “Natural Born Citizen” do not like Article II, Section 1 and/or the Fourteenth Amendment of the Constitution, then I respectfully suggest that you see about amending them, rather than pretending that the plain English they contain means something other than what it clearly does.
Next you’ll be saying that Obama is a Natural Born Citizen since he was delivered not by C section.
NO... The words of Patrick Henry still reverberate throughout America. Free Americans will not flock like sheep and allow Liberty to disappear. There are courageous contingencies that will be implemented.
Don't you agree? Or are you planning to become mutton.
If we really wanted to tick off the Rats we’d overtly acknowledge that we don’t recognize Obama as legitimate and just always refer to the players as President Biden and the Kenyan. A couple of months of “President Biden” references should really tick off the Kenyan, who has self credibility issues to begin with.
Our Kenyan born CIC, our Kenyan born POTUS, our Kenyan born head of state...
Anyone born in the United States is a natural born citizen. To argue otherwise in light of the Fourteenth Amendment is to willfully disregard objective reality.
Just a wild-ass guess:
Cowardice combined with fear of the whiny minority “looting and rioting” *again*?
[and for the love of God, man, don’t EVER post that McZombie gif again! I’m gonna have nightmares now!]
You are sadly mistaken.
Americans can’t believe that many can be manipulated to lie to them. The REPUBLICANS with that fool McCain leading the way wanted to treat a COMMUNIST running for President as a legitimate candidate. Sarah Palin is the only one who had the intestinal fortitude to even bring up the fact that Obama is a radical and the clown has been saying this in videos for years.
The BIG LIE that was told about Obama is impossible to comprehend by almost all Americans. The Press was not going to allow Obama to be “SWIFT BOATED”, they were manipulated to kill stories that would lead to Americans knowing the truth. The Swiftboat tactics killed Kerry in 2004 but they were used to PROTECT Obama in 2008.
Now we have a radical Communist in the office of the Presidency, he surrounds himself with radicals who are doing their best to destroy America economically as they implement their form of government with almost no reports by the MSM except FOX who is still a bit restrained about the truth except for Glenn Beck who is still holding back!
Now you won’t believe this is a conspiracy because that’s a dirty word. Jack Cashill has shown that Obama’s brilliant books were likely written by anti-American radical Bill Ayers. You won’t believe that Obama can’t supply a legitimate birth certificate because he can’t, he wasn’t born in Hawaii, he was born in Kenya.
How can they tell the big lie and get away with it? You’ve been lied to before by the government, they felt it was necessary. They’ve made absolute fools of themselves but you still think it’s a “mystery.”
When you look back on the destruction of our country and wonder what happened, realize the foundation of this BIG LIE started decades ago. The bottom line is that the answer can be right in front of you but you’ll have doubts until the MSM tells you it’s OK to think it,until then you’ll “wonder.”
AP declared obama kenyan born.
What a coincidence.
So did I.
I am getting a little old. That 6 inch black circle at 100 yds is getting a little fuzzy and maybe the barrels are getting worn out but it is probably me. I have posted before, I think I can handle my own for abouut 60 seconds in the next war and that's fine, if it comes to that. I suspect there are enough younger foks that will carry on after that but I won't care anymore at that point.
Well, Senator McCain?
A fact the even Keyes campaign manager denies, Find that line in a transcript.
I grew up feeling sorry for people in Russia because their government controlled their economy, their media was biased and their freedoms were restricted.
“Americans cant believe that many can be manipulated to lie to them.”
Hillbillies are taught this as soon as they are old enough to comprehend it.
[Just ask all the ACORN/Census takers what kind of reception they get when they come sniffing around]
Hell, we’re even suspicious of the meter readers.
I can’t speak for the other subsets of society but we’re wet-wired to not trust *anybody* affiliated with any governmental department.
It’s just how we’re made.
My state is so full of Dem corruption that it’s an automatic electoral “gimme”.
When Ehrlich [R-ino] ran, people I can guarantee you that had never previously bothered to vote because of the invariable, forgone outcome, came out of the hills in droves.
And, we got screwed.
Four years later, those “mountain boys” stayed home and O’Malice took the state and we’re screwed even worse but at least we’re being screwed by someone we expect to screw us.
Whether it be “Feds”, “Rev’nooers”, “Gubmint”, there’s no mystery out here.
Don’t trust ‘em.
Thanks for the video.
One of the best arguments against the “single bullet” theory I’ve seen in a while.
And we are spectacularly screwed.
I’ll get you for that!
[and your little dog, too!]
Something calling itself "AP" declared Obama Kenyan-born, but it wasn't the Associated Press. Time to give up the birthplace issue, folks. There's something on that birth certificate he doesn't want to get out, but where he was born isn't it.
As Mark Levin is fond of saying (as am I) we needn’t get bent out of shape looking at the radicals surrounding Obama.
He is the biggest one himself.
Anyone born in the United States is a natural born citizen.
So the child of illegal immigrants that is born in the US would be a NBC and elgible to be POTUS?
Drudge needs to put the AP article on his site
Agreed. I would need to see that on a verified transcript or see the video myself.
While I don’t believe Obama is legitimate, I believe it is a losing battle. The only good that will come out of this is that any candidate in future elections will need to have this verified in advance, because it has been given enough attention.
Not that it will alleviate any damage this POS does to our country in the interim.
I will be interesting come next election cycle, when due to all the hue and cry, all candidates are required to present proof (I hope) and the Obama people say that they don’t need to because he is already President. I can see a lawsuit coming out of that.
Go study the writings of the authors of the Constitution itself re citizenship of the President before you make such dumb@$$, ignorant statements here on FR.
"(By definition, ever [sic] drafter of the Constitution had two parents who held citizenship in foreign states.)"
Obviously, the framers considered parentage to be of prime importance to "natural born" status -- because they specifically "grandfathered" themslves...
Except for your clearly Øbamist leanings, you actually have not a leg to stand on...
Psst! You need to "Grammar Nazi" your own writings...
I won't believe this exchange took place unless I see a video.
In this case, I have no need to study their writings beyond the Constitution itself, as there’s nothing unclear about what it says.
Yes, I dropped a letter. Was noticing it the highlight of your day?
