Skip to comments.Old papers tell different tales on Obama's past

Contributing to the impression of shifting sands in his official biography, two newspaper articles from 1990 apparently based on interviews with Barack Obama reported that the future president left Hawaii for Indonesia when he was 2 years old, not 6 years old, as he relates in his autobiography.
On May 3, 1990, the Associated Press widely published a feature story on Obama highlighting him as the first African-American named as president of the Harvard Law review.
"Obama moved to Southeast Asia at age 2 when his parents divorced and his mother married an Indonesian," the Associated Press reported. "Until the fifth grade, Obama attended Indonesian schools, where most of his friends were the sons of servants, street peddlers and farmers."
The Associated Press article was widely published throughout the United States in newspapers that typically picked up and reprinted AP stories.
Here is the screen capture of the AP report as published by the Chicago Daily Herald on May 3, 1990:

Just curious, but does Obama have any ties to the Lippo Group or the Riyady family (of Clinton Era infamy)?
Articles from 1990 cast doubt on president's 'official' childhood story
Unfortunately, since Barack (Hussein) 0bama has blocked all release of his U.S. passport and travel records, there is no public documentation of when he first traveled to Indonesia, or under what passport.

Interesting to read that article again. Thanks, onyx.

“I’m not interested in the suburbs. The suburbs bore me. And I’m not interested in isolating myself,” Obama said in a recent interview. “I feel good when I’m engaged in what I think are the core issues of the society, and those core issues to me are what’s happening to poor folks in this society.”
His passion is rooted in his background. He was born in Hawaii, his father an Oxfordand Harvard-educated economist from the African nation of Kenya, his mother a white anthropologist from Kansas. Obama moved to Southeast Asia at age 2 when his parents divorced and his mother married an Indonesian.
Until the fifth grade, Obama attended Indonesian schools, where most of his friends were the sons of servants, street peddlers and farmers. Concern for Obama’s education led his mother to return him to Hawaii, where he attended public schools through high school. In 1983, he graduated from Columbia University with a degree in political science.
At a recent meeting in a Harvard cafeteria, his affinity with the underdog was readily apparent. “I lived in a country where I saw extreme poverty at a very early age,” Obama said. “Parts of my family in Kenya remain very poor. My grandmother still lives in a mud-walled house with no running water or electricity.
“That’s who I am, that’s where I come from, not always literally, but at least emotionally.” ...
LucyT = look... this is not new info at all!
Whatta bloody phony!!! I wonder if he even believes this himself. He's a Soviet Union-era communist who believes "It's all about the poor," yeah, controlling them from your elegant dacha. He is the Anointed One and deserves all the taxes from the workers, while HE "solves" their problems from above.
And his history is filled with so many inconsistencies that who knows what even approximates truth?
Thanks - ‘tis okay, there is so much to keep up with, a refresher course is welcome occasionally.
He obviously does not believe in helping his own. His success has not helped to lift his relatives circumstances. Charity begins at home.. he apparently does not wish to help his own blood.. why would anyone believe he would care about helping them?
Interesting... This certainly sheds a little light on Ubama’s reparations agenda.
a lady nevers tell her real age
Don’t have the facilities to do this but;During his ACORN days in Chicago I’m pretty sure there’s a film clip of him participating at a (housing redlining) protest at a Chicago bank. It’s either the ABC or NBC affiliate ch 7 or 5. The Trib or The Sun Times might have a report of in in their morgues
Yeah. He did a real good job of that in Chicago.
Obama's "community organizing" left Chicago neighborhoods in ruins.
Grim proving ground for Obama's housing policy
"About 99 of the units are vacant, many rendered uninhabitable by unfixed problems, such as collapsed roofs and fire damage. Mice scamper through the halls. Battered mailboxes hang open. Sewage backs up into kitchen sinks. In 2006, federal inspectors graded the condition of the complex an 11 on a 100-point scale - a score so bad the buildings now face demolition."
This is what I expected from someone who seals his records and the rat media, along with the rat press, continue to get on their hands and knees to lick his boots. A complete phony. I wish we would just get the truth for goodness sakes.
Simple fix....The AP reporter was mistaken.
There should be a film clip of that piece of blackmail (no pun intended) in which he partticipated in and news coverage by both Chicago papers. He almost shut down the bank.
OOOOHHHH...The Lippo Group and the Ryadi Family...both of Indonesia!! WOnder if there is any connection.....hmmmm
Of course not. That's the government's job.
Return to sender, address unknown.
The way this is worded, it looks like Barry got the boot from his Indonesian school. Judging by what we know of his character, perhaps he was a bully. I lost tabs on the tranny nanny story, but that would do it.
Ok this is confusing. Isn’t the photo of him and a classmate in Hawaii from 3rd grade?
Could the issue here be that he had to repeat a couple of grades? Maybe her concern for his education was that he wasn’t doing well either because he was a slow learner or the school was crappy? So she brings him back to Hawaii (they say fifth grade but maybe it was really after completing 4th grade) and instead of going into 5th grade he has to start in 3rd?
Or am I just remembering wrong on the Hawaii photo?
Obozo’s entire past is blast of Areo Fritto!
How soon? Was she seeing Sotero before the divorce? Is there any documentation of either? Is he a dual citizen?
So many questions, so few answers.
The New World Order looked around for the person with the least past and then hid even that. They were able to place Barack in the White House because they are in control.
* tales * being the operative word
Now how does that make any difference on his Indonesian adoption and citizenship status, that some FINOs, and Holder-SPs proclaims are totally irrelevant to his “NBC” status, or none-NBC status???
If Obama is so concerned about his grandmother why doesn’t he send her a few bucks?
I had a very smart well educated and well traveled MD say that nObama would certainly be better than “the last eight years”. And she said that with a smirk! All she knew about either of them she had learned from NPR!
“... perhaps he was a bully...”
If Obama was a bully, he was a psychological one. I know he likes to point in people’s faces. But, there is no way a guy who throws a baseball like he does can throw a good punch.
“I had a very smart well educated and well traveled MD say that nObama would certainly be better than the last eight years. And she said that with a smirk! All she knew about either of them she had learned from NPR!”
Unbelievable! (but, unfortunately, true)
Nobody wanted to be the first to really question anything about this BOzo unless they were willing to be the first to be called a “racist”.
Hillary’s Lost Memories
depends on what birth certificat he uses, if he was born in 1961, he would have been 2 years old. if he was born in 1959 and his mother was underage and Hawaii was not a state yet.okay his mother was a minor, his father was a british subject - paternity sets the naturalization issue - born of a non citizen born of a minor - non citizen never went through the naturalization - illegal obtaine the presidency through fraud. even if his mother was 18, and she was in Hawaii - it is his father paternity and naturalization that is the problem Either way Odumbo is ineligible to be president.
Note Chicago is the seat of a radical agenda - there is no need to be a native son to become president. numerous articles have been written about this. find out if Odumbo attended any of the lectures or gave any speeches in Chicago through the auspices of the University of Chicago. I will post again a title of the paper presented in 1998 in Chicago regarding the movement of not being native born to be president.
ALL FRREPERS NEED TO READ THAT LINK!!!
>>He almost shut down the bank.<<
Where did he get this authority as a young man?
He and his folks = CIA .
newsmax.com.... isn’t it odd that is was reported ole slick willy visited there a few months ago; he is good friends with the owner?
I’m certainly not inclined to defend Obama, but reporters make factual errors all the time.
The nomenklatura convinced the Russian people for 70 years that it was all about the ‘poor’ and that they had the cure.
Well, well well. Not single thing, not one, adds up regarding his past. Everything is full of inconsistencies. Is yours? No, neither is mine. He’s a liar with a fabricated past changed to suit an agenda, the great fraud ever perpetuated on the American people.
Obama’s drug abuse probably prevents him from correctly remembering a lot of his past.
So much corruption the media ignores...
