That ear is very distinctive - it is he imo.
IMO, it’s reasonable that an asian kid attending a vastly “asian” school would take notice of a much taller “black” kid. Especially if he became friends with him at some point. Could very well have been the only black friend, or classmate he had while at that school.
Let's assume the picture is not him for the moment and go to the article. I am back to wondering what the game plan is.
Thinking out loud:
The article is printed in the Hawaii paper while Obama is visiting.
The article contradicts Obama’s fictional narrative called his autobiography.
The man with the picture supposedly has a typewritten by obama but with a personal signature. The letter is dated November 9, 2009
Have you read Nelson DeMille’s “The Charm School”? I think Obama may be a graduate.
I am left-handed and I tried doing that gang sign with my right-hand that Barry is doing and it hurts. I can easily do it with my left....just saying.
We had a student teacher at that time, and it was her idea for everyone to pick someone to partner with and to have a picture taken," Inoue said.
He and "Barry" picked each other and posed for the photograph in their classroom at Noelani School in Honolulu.
Student artwork in the background shows it was taken around Christmastime. Inoue doesn't remember many of the circumstances, but he remembers them lining up for the photos that he believes were displayed on a classroom wall for the duration of the school year.
His classmate, Barry Obama, didn't last that long. His family moved to Indonesia sometime during the school year.
"I don't remember too much about him," Inoue said. "I just remember he was big. After he left, I always remembered this picture. I always would wonder whatever happened to him. I always assumed he moved to the States.
"When I was in high school, when I was a junior or senior, I remember I was listening to a high school basketball game on the radio and I heard the name Barry Obama, and I thought, 'That's what happened to him.' "
By then, Obama had returned from Indonesia and was playing basketball at Punahou, a private school in Honolulu.
Inoue lost track of "Barry," as he was known in his school days, until the future president became a U.S. senator from Illinois.
"I thought, 'I'll bet that's him.' By then he was Barack," Inoue said. "I researched his bio and found out he's from Hawaii and he's the same age, and I knew, yeah, that's him.
During the presidential election, a classmate had submitted the class kindergarten picture to Hawaii Business Magazine, which ran it. The adorable photo of 5-year-olds features Obama standing in the third row and Inoue seated in the front.
"I had totally forgotten we were in kindergarten together," Inoue said.
What he remembered was the picture of the two of them. He knew his mother had it in her house in Honolulu, because "she saves everything." Inoue had her send the photo to him, and he had copies of it made. He sent one to the magazine, which ran it earlier this year. Another copy is hanging in his office, prompting the obvious question from patients: "Who is that?"
Although he left Hawaii in 1985 when he moved to Hayward to attend chiropractic college, Inoue speaks fondly of his childhood in the Manoa Valley, near the University of Hawaii in Honolulu.
It was a neighborhood where people didn't have to lock their doors, and children mostly walked to school. The majority of residents were Japanese.
"(Obama) was possibly the only African-American in my class," Inoue said. "At that age you don't have so much of that prejudice. Everyone played with each other. I can't say what he went through, experience-wise. I think I read somewhere that when he went to Punahou, he had a bit of a hard time with those issues."

These photos almost look like what a computer artist might do if assigned to come up with these using the present day Obama as a starting point. Weird.
Something else - someone said the sandals look like they are velcro which did not come out until the ‘70’s (don’t know) - well, I have a vest which is very similar to the one in the top photo and it was bought in the 1970’s.
One more thing - the ears. Present day Obama has out-sized ears, too big for the size of his face whether they stick out or not. This kid in the spotonce.com photos has ears that are way too big for his face. The supposed 8 year old Barry in the 1969 photo has ears that are sized more reasonably versus his face. I don’t know enough about the development of the ear at different ages to know whether this could be normal or not. Anyone know?
If he were Russian, sure...
Good catch. Will the real BO please step forward?
“Moreover, Barry O. was born to one American Citizen, who under statutes at that time could not confer citizenship status.”
I believe the above is only true if Barry was born outside the US and US territories, as would be the case for a Kenya birth. I don’t believe there is an age limit for a married or unmarried US citizen mother to confer citizenship for a birth on US soil. Otherwise all children of underage unmarried mothers would not be citizens. In my view, only SCOTUS can determine (and hasn’t yet) whether the legitimate or illegitimate child of an US citizen mother and a foreign citizen father can be NBC.
From my memory of prior FReeper posts, Dr. West was retired five years before Barry was born, but worked in HI vital records and might have seen the original birth report...say of a home birth, and Snopes is run by two activist lefties out of their basement.
my youngest son is nine... he is tall, taller than all the kids on his baseball team and taller than his buddies... he is well-spoken... he is lanky, no baby fat... his face looks mature... since he was about six years old, people have thought him to be a couple of years older... he is in the fourth grade, but people think he's in the sixth grade... he just looks more mature... on a side note, he's quite intelligent so that adds to people's perception...
What are the chances that kindergarden photo is altered?
Who is the classmate who submitted the photo?
Why would Inoue forget about knowing obama 3 years previously? What made obama different this time?
I think that Inoue's memory is being played with, unless he can find his own copy of the 5 year olds together. OTOH, how much was he paid and why would he reveal this photo?
Why haven't the other classmates come forward?
I believe the obama team is rebuilding a new false version of obama's life. They're sneaking it in little by little. Also, the timing is too strange.
EVERYTHING about obama is a lie.
Thanks. Yeah, poor Barry really got a raw deal in the parenting department. On both sides.
At the risk of being a prude, it frankly does concern me that we’ve now had 2 of the past 3 presidents from really dysfunctional backgrounds. I have always thought that if Clinton had had the type of stability provided by his late life adopted father, ole ‘41’, he could have been a great president. As it was, all his ‘issues’ resulting from that dysfunction played out on the national and world stage.
So let me get this straight. The Obama "official story line" is that Obama went to school from 6 to 10 years old from 1967 to 1971 in Indonesia, but we find out now that he went to school in Hawaii as an 8 year old third grader.
Gee, how come we didn't hear about this in his autobiographies since they are the paragon of Obama truth telling?
You are correct to state that is true if Barry was born outside the country.
The thing is, I am not convinced of where he was born.
There should be no problem conferring Natural Born Citizenship is he was born here and of two parents who are or were U.S. citizens at that time.
I don’t think it is important that he be Russian, just that he is a communist and all indications are that he meets that criteria.
After throwing out a man they despise, and a culture (white, male, Christian, capitalist, oil, Texan, Western, American, ...) they (uniformly)) hate and loath.
But Obama spends his days signing letters to a Hawaiian hospital where he claims he was born, signing pictures about a third grade class his biography claims he didn't (could not have) attended ....
There is one distinction vis a vis the territories. Their citizens, U.S. citizens, can vote in our presidential elections but they get no electoral votes; also they don’t have Senators or Congressmen. Even DC now has electoral votes, while not having senators. DC’s ‘representative’ status is tricky, changing from Congress to Congress.
Same kid. He just got some sun..
I have seen articles where the year of return from Indonesia was stated as 1970. The image we are looking at probably relates to Christmas 1969.
Supposedly taken in Indonesia, this image below was labelled NMenteng (undated.)
his hairline looks a little peculiar...
It would seem he went to Indonesia after this photograph was taken.
So the sun also made his BIG, Dumbo ears smaller?......I mean temporarily of course.
The angle and length of the arm over the shoulder seem un-natural. Photoshop?
And Mama was on food stamps. Go figure.
Your points are well taken.
I’ve not read either of his two autobiographical novels, so I’m not all that familiar with his residency claims.
Maybe Stan was the man!
"1970 : Hamilton releases the "Pulsar", the first electronic digital watch."
It would be about another 5 years before digital watches were widely sold to the public. If that's a digital watch that's not Obama.
I don’t put a lot of stock in Snopes, but the person who believed Ms. Nelson’s report absolutely confirms BHO’s HI birth sure does. I’ve gotten to the point where nothing, absolutely nothing, including the trolls here on FR, surprises me any more.
“If you are going to ban people born in territories you had better include McCain because he was born in the territory of Panama(it was at the time).”
I can live with that. :-)
I didn't know this!
“And, according to attorney Gary Kreep, his Occidental College records are important as they may show he attended there as a foreign exchange student. Indeed, Obama used his Indonesian name Barry Soetoro while attending Occidental.”
from former link in this thread
And many think or were researching Obama was born a couple of years earlier than he says. His birth certificate could actually read he was born 2 to 3 years earlier.
Something to do with the Hawaiian naturalization being done in a certain year but not when he was actually born. I can't remember the whole deal.
nope, that and velcro. pictures look too good colorized.
T-Bar Sandals, primarily for children, with an enclosed heel and toe. It is fastened by a cross-wise strap or bar secured by a buckle or more recently, by Velcro. A length-wise strap extends from the vamp and joins the cross-strap over the arch of the foot to form a T shape. A common variant has two cross-straps. The toe is often pierced with a pattern of holes or slots. The sole is low-heeled and usually of crepe rubber, stitched-down to the upper. First seen in Europe and America in the early 1900s, by the 1950s they were very common for boys and girls up to their teens, but are now mainly worn by much younger children.
As a strident Barry O. watcher, I too had not heard this and found verification.
Sometimes stuff comes up but then gets pushed back down for a lack of verification.
The Democrat Party sent a rep to Jakarta in July, 2007, just to buy up all the photos of Barak Obama and the Soetoro family. I’ve always wondered why and this photo provides the clue.
Note: just as in the baby photos of Barak Obama, where he is being held by his mother, Stanley Ann, this Barak has a dimple in his chin. This dimpled chin is a dominant family trait. His mama had it, so did his grandfather Stanley.
Just try and find a photo of President Obama showing a dimpled chin. There isn’t one. It is extremely difficult to alter a dimpled chin with plastic surgery.
I am doubtful that the two are the same person. We may very well have an Indonesian born usurper as President.
Of course. Later on, just add water..
I bet NO mainstream media reporter will dare ask President Obama the question of whether or not Obama was indeed a grade school student in Hawaii in 1969 for part of the school year as a classmate claims today.
So, I challenge some brave mainstream media reporter, or even non-mainstream media persons like Hannity and O'Reilly, to try to clear up this question:
Was Obama in Indonesia in 1969 as claimed by Obama and his supporters, or was Obama in Hawaii in 1969 as claimed by a person who says he was Obama's grade school classmate in Hawaii in 1969, and who displays a photo from 1969 to prove it?
I zoomed in 400%. It definitely looks digital to me—the watch face is way too small for a kid’s watch with hands.
Are we ever going to find out who this guy is?
Just thinking out loud:
1. As I understand it, Obama played on a Hawaii state championship basketball team in high school.
2. But what happens if we find out that Obama was enrolled in that school under the name of "Obama" when he was legally named "Soetoro"?
3. Does it mean that the Hawaii school must forfeit the Hawaii basketball championship because it used an ineligible player named Obama?
4. And what about Obama's real age? If we find out that Obama lied about his age when in high school, does this also mean that Obama's high school must again forfeit its Hawaii basketball championship it won some 25 to 30 years ago?
This worthless excuse for a president is the consummate IMOM (International Man of Mystery).
Will we ever know who he really is?
