NPR archive describes Obama as 'Kenyan-born'
WorldNetDaily ^ | APRIL 8, 2010 | Bob Unruh

Posted on 04/08/2010 9:12:02 PM PDT by RobinMasters

Those crazy "birthers" are citing National Public Radio.

Really? NPR?

Archives for the tax-supported organization reveal that a 2008 report described then-Sen. Barack Obama as "Kenyan-born" and a "son of Africa."

NPR's promotion for the story included a brief description of West African correspondent Ofeibea Quist-Arcton, who "describes the stories that have been exciting, including the U.S. presidential race of Kenyan-born Sen. Barack Obama."

After discussing various issues developing in Africa at the time – such as Kenya's violent elections, the attacks in Zimbabwe and the presidency of South Africa – the conversation on the program "Tell Me More" turned to Obama.

NPR is really asking smugly, “Obama is Kenyian born, so what are you(The American people) going to do about it?”

They know that The Constitution will be bent for Obama and it will be bent for everything else he wants to do.

A better question is when did Obama change his story?

In a debate with Keyes it came up that Obama was not eligible for POTUS and Obama stated he was not running for POTUS. Where is that video? Disappeared from youtube but should be out there somewhere.

MSM has not done their job. Well, they did their job in ignoring this generation’s Watergate because it suited their political goals. More info out there like this and likely footage somewhere of Obama admitting he’s an “African-African.”

Also, some say ‘natural born citizen’ requires both parents to be U.S. citizen. That’s a slam dunk disqualification if true.

Remember also the Obama/Odinga connection.

Concern about political violence from the Tea Party say the leftists? Okay, how about this guy Obama campaigned for in Africa while Obama was a U.S. Senator (which violates federal law)?

After Odinga lost the election his thugs went on a rampage murdering Christians (Odinga was the Muslim candidate). Obama spoke with Odinga on the phone daily and requested that he not continue the demonstrations.

And we’re worried about Bible study grandmoms carrying signs for the Tea Party???

Where I live it is tornado season. You know if the powers that be declared that tornadoes did not exist we would be safe. They should have thought of that a long time ago. Just think of the loss of life and the damage that would have saved.

Except that throughout the entire 12:22 segment Quist-Arcton not one single time refers to Obama as "Kenyan-born."

Keep trying. There's gotta be a smoking gun somewhere!

Try again. At 10:02 "Barack Obama's father is from Kenya."

I don't think this was ever in dispute.

Your photograph of the sign is not what it actually is. It is actually a photo-shopped of the actual sign:

I am actually pissed that I had to go out into the web and find the above image to correct your deceptive image. It does not do us patriots for the truth any service for you to post this crap.

Your only saving grace is that yes, Barack Obama Sr was born in Kenya. As for Barack Jr. too many people are sitting on their rears and will not go out and dig up the truth. They could start with Stanley Ann's Mercer Island friends.

Or this:

At one point in the second debate, Keyes, accused Obama saying, “You are not even a natural born citizen!”

To which Obama immediately replied, “So what? I am running for Illinois Senator, not the presidency.”

At the end of the airing of the second debate, the C-Span host noted, as he read from a single sheet of paper, placed before him, that the Obama Campaign had contacted them and requested them to point out to their viewers that Obama’s response here should not be understood as a denial that he is a natural born citizen, only that Keyes’ accusation had nothing to do with the qualifications of office of a U.S. Senator.

Where did you hear this? You have quotes and yet you offer no source for this? I’d love to believe you, really, but I’ve never seen a source for any of this. No transcript, no video, no audio. If you have a source to back this up then please let us know.

I listened to the interview as well. Obama is called a “son of Africa”, but not Kenyan-born. If you say, “The facts are wrong, but the story is true”, then you are just like Dan Rather.

I just find it funny that Wing Nut Daily screams from the rafters, "NPR says Obama is Kenyan-born!!!" and then links their story to a NPR radio broadcast where not once does anyone claim that he is Kenyan-born.

There's 12 minutes and 22 seconds of my life I'm never getting back.

Did you guys not even read the NPR page that the WND article links to? On that NPR page you’ll see that NPR explains the audio clip that is posted there and in that explanation, third sentence, it says, “She also describes the stories that have been exciting, including the U.S. presidential race of Kenyan-born Sen. Barack Obama.” So yes, NPR said in Oct 2008 that Barack Obama Jr. was “Kenyan-born”.

Yes, I listened to it. Does that change the fact that NPR said that Obama was “Kenyan-born” on the page that’s linked, just as the WND title says? Of course not. Are you going to deny that NPR said that Obama was “Kenyan-born”? We’re not talking about the audio link, we’re talking about the page that was linked.

That link was to NPR’s story. In the text they refer to Obama as “Kenyan-Born” (at least for today; sure it’ll be scrubbed). The audio says “son of Kenya” and doesn’t say Kenyan born.

Still, that’s NPR in print saying “Kenyan born.” Those crazy birthers at NPR!!

Yeah, I’m fully aware of this. They actually say “son of Africa” not “son of Kenya” but yes the explanation of the video on the NPR page says that Obama is “Kenyan-born”.

So yeah, NPR has now joined the birthers. Did you know that Chris Matthews is also a birther? While on his MSNBC program several months ago he said that Axelrod should just leak a copy of the original birth certificate to the news media to end the whole thing. Amazingly that’s basically the same thing we’re saying.

No. Even if he was born in Hawaii, his father's foreign citizenship prevents Zero from being natural-born.

“[I] find no fault with the introductory clause, which is simply declaratory of what is written in the Constitution, that every human being born within the jurisdiction of the United States of parents not owing allegiance to any foreign sovereignty is, in the language of your Constitution itself, a natural born citizen. ”
— John A. Bingham, (R-Ohio) US Congressman, March 9, 1866 Cong. Globe, 39th, 1st Sess., 1291, Sec. 1992 of U.S. Revised Statutes (1866).

-----

Congress-critters also tried to pass of this little gem for the benefit of O.

TITLE 8 > CHAPTER 12 > SUBCHAPTER III > Part I > § 1409, Children born out of wedlock

(c) Notwithstanding the provision of subsection (a) of this section, a person born, after December 23, 1952, outside the United States and out of wedlock shall be held to have acquired at birth the nationality status of his mother, if the mother had the nationality of the United States at the time of such person’s birth, and if the mother had previously been physically present in the United States or one of its outlying possessions for a continuous period of one year.

The only problem is that Zero was NOT born 'out of wedlock'.

Despite the fact his father was a bigamist, Zero's mother choose to get a divorce in a court of law instead of just having the marriage annulled, which keeps the illegitimate birth provision from applying to the Pretender in Chief.
