Kenya investigated Obama 'African birth'
World Net Daily ^ | 05/10/2011 | Jerome R. Corsi

Posted on 05/10/2011 5:36:52 PM PDT by Smokeyblue

Documents obtained by WND indicate the Kenyan government investigated the possibility that President Obama was born in the East African nation.

Two letters purportedly written by Kenya's immigration secretary during the 2008 U.S. presidential election campaign stated that officials in Nairobi could not find evidence Obama was born in Kenya. But the official said the government had "information" that relevant birth records may have been removed or were missing.

Emmanuel Kisombe, the permanent secretary in the Ministry for Immigration and Registration of Persons, wrote a letter in July 2008 in reply to a letter from the U.S. ambassador in Nairobi that raised the possibility with Kenyan officials that Obama was born in their country.

Kisombe wrote another letter on the issue, this time to Kenya's Criminal Investigation Department, a few days before the Nov. 4 presidential election in the U.S.

Kisombe, 56, has been in public service since 1979, according to his bio. He became principal administrative secretary in the Office of the President in 2004 and was appointed permanent secretary for Immigration and Registration of Persons on Dec. 7, 2005.

His Oct. 22, 2008, letter to Simon Karanja Gatiba, director of the Criminal Investigation Department, indicated an investigation into the possibility Obama was born in Kenya was instigated at the level of the Kenyan Cabinet.

Big surprise, officials in Obama’s cousins administration can't find Obama’s BC.

BUT, Lucas Smith could, by greasing a few palms.

“A July 4, 2008, letter by Kisombe to U.S. Amb. Michael Ranneberger in Nairobi, marked “Confidential,” was a response to an inquiry from the U.S. regarding the possibility that Obama had birth records in Kenya.”

...an inquiry from the U.S....

Who?
Bush Administration?
Hillary Campaign?

Maybe if you were to send Lucas Smith a few more thousand dollars, he would be able to have the media and courts pay attention to that Kenyan BC.

Rahm took care of that in December of 2008 when he disappeared for 3 weeks in December of 2008 while at the same time Obongo took care of the one in Hawaii the night the power mysteriously went out and stayed out all night long.

Why did so many news articles call Obama “Kenyan-Born”??

***********************************************************************

In the Kenyan Parliament it is stated in the Recorded Minutes March 25th, 2010

**********************************************************************
(69 Pages.....Page 31 Minister of Lands, James Orengo states; Obama was born “here in Kenya” &

“not even a native American”)

If Minister James Orengo states that Obama is “Not even a Native American” & this is recorded into Kenyan Parliament minutes.
****************************************************************************
Then I think it is time our Congress have to address the fact that we have a “USURPER” in our White House!!

*******************************************************************************

Here are 6 African Newspaper articles calling Obama “Kenyan-Born”

Notice the first article was from Sunday, June 27, “2004”

The Ghana Times — “So far, the odds favour the once underdog in American politics, Obama, the “African-American Senator” from Illinois state. A Congressional Quarterly (CQ) politics monitored on BBC put the “Kenyan born” American ahead of his rivel, John McCain.”

This is for the Obots: B.Hussein Obama AKA Barry Soetoro, is not eligible because his father ( or so he claims-loudly and in a friggin’ book!) was Kenyan.

A natural born US Citizen is the offspring of 2 Americans and is also born on US Soil.

It doesn’t matter where Hussein was hatched, his sperm donor makes him ineligible for POTUS.

Of couse if he was born outside the USA, he is a double ineligible usurper.

Hmmn. No one can find his records; so I guess that means he wasn’t born.

Get out of office Obama. You weren’t born anywhere.

Wasn’t it Rick whatshisname who also said that record books had been messed with and that an officer worker said that the books had been taken out but when they were returned some pages had been misfiled? This was a good while back so I don’t remember the exact details.

That's my bet.

Apparently the Kenyan Parliament thinks he was a native son - of Kenya. See my tagline that I've had since it came out in their posted minutes.

"The information we in the ministry have is that some documents have been removed by unknown persons at unknown dates or are missing from birth registry records thus denting the prospects of uncovering the facts of this matter. This tampering, if confirmed, substitutes a series offence that is punishable by law and behooves your office to track down the culprits and bring them to justice. ..."


Par for the course for Obama in that more missing documents that are hidden from the public.

You still have that missing document list? You can add
the missing records from the Mombasa Coast Provincial General Hospital in October 2008 that sure seem to be related to Barack Obama.

Even if Obama were American, I would still expect investigations into why he won’t show his documents. Even if you think the birther thing is crazy, you can’t send the message that anyone can just walk in and become president.

If Corsi’s Kisombe document is genuine, the fact that the highest levels of the Kenyan government were searching for “removed” Obama BC seems to tie circumstantially to the firing of the three top Kenyan police officers reported by the BBC on Sept. 8, 2009, which I posted on FR just days after Orly filed a copy of an alleged Coast Province General Hospital BC in federal court:

“Kenya sweeps away top-rank police”

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2334856/posts

The BBC reporters, at the time in 2009, attempted to guess that the firings were related to the 2007 Kenya election riots, but they couldn't actually say that they knew why the officers were fired.

It is clear from the Kisombe memo that Kenya viewed any such BC as a valuable national security secret which, of course, could be used to blackmail the most powerful man in the world who had access to virtually unlimited funds to make payoffs with. The newly released letter says anyone involved with making the potential Obama BC records disappear should be severely punished, as should, I assume, anyone who, perhaps like the police offiecers, accepted a bribe to release the BC which may have ended up in CA in Sept. 2009!

What is most confusing is why (if we are to assume Obama had the BC all along) he would allow Lt. Col. Terry Lakin to be sentenced to 6 months in prison and end up stripped of his rank and benefits.

What sort of man would allow this miscarriage of justice???

Certainly not the brilliant, compassionate, fair minded constitutional lawyer extraordinaire we read about in the media....

It crossed my mind...but no one in their right mind would go to Kenya in 1961 to have a child. Geographically absurd.

Mr & Mrs Obama had a child in Hawaii...that child is on the 1960-64 birth index. But the date of birth wasn’t August 4, 1961, and his mother wasn’t Stanley Ann Dunham...because when Mary baby-sat for ANNA her own child, who was born in July, 1959, was 18 months old.

And that means the child was conceived while Stanley Ann Dunham was still in high school and had never set foot in Hawaii.

Trying to stuff Stanley Ann Dunham into the “mother/wife” box is what really confuses everything. She just won’t fit.

The BC from Kenya must be a forgery then? Why do various Kenyans say he was born there etc?

Some thoughts:

Kenya has such deep tribal factions and corruption that there are many possible interpretations of this letter from Kisombe to Gatiba, depending on which side of the divide each one is on and who knows what is really going on and who doesn't.

Kisombe may be covering his own butt (may have been aligned with those who hid the Obama BC records). Kisombe may have been writing a “I'm shocked, shocked” letter to Gatiba saying that the perps were unknown when they were well known to Kismobe.

Or Kisombe might suspect that the perps who did the deed could be known to Gatiba or suspected by Gatiba and Kisombe could be threatening Gatiba a bit with dire consequences (Kisombe goes on and on about how grave this is) if Gatiba doesn't get the BC documents back (perhaps pull them out from under the bed?).

The last sentence, “My officers have been instructed to fully cooperate as the Kenya Police Criminal Investigation Department performs this task” sounds like bureaucracy-speak for my guys will be looking over your shoulders and expecting to see results!

“Any thoughts as to why Trump would ignore Lucas Smith and his BC?”

Link please, if you have one. How would anyone know what Trump is “ignoring”?

Trump is reported to be listening intently to Farrah and Corsi and appears to have taken many cues from them.

Corsi has dissed the Smith CPGH BC, but his numerous points of criticism were bogus or speculative and not conclusive, according to my research (I have not reached a conclusion on the CPGH BC).

The point at hand is that if Trump is listening to Corsi and Corsi failed to buy into the Smith BC then Trump would stay away from it.

Trump's high-paid hot-shot lawyer can tell him that Smith's BC can only be authenticated by notoriously corrupt Kenyans and will have little credibility if actually entered into evidence in a US federal court (it has not, yet, but only filed...not the same thing) especially if Obama’s HI BC isn't yet denounced by credible forensic analysis.

The date on this letter is about 10 days prior to Chiyome Fukino releasing her first news release claiming she saw that an original birth certificate was on file. Did Obama try to clean up any loose ends in Kenya before they had the HI DOH release that statement??

Right. But while everyone is suffering from the drip drip drip of hundreds of articles about Stanley Ann Dunham, the mother-myth has penetrated the subconscious to such an extent they continue to try and fit the square-peg Stanley Ann into a round mother-hole.

The BC from Kenya must be a forgery then? Why do various Kenyans say he was born there etc?

Because it stops anyone from looking anywhere else...

At least they were direct about it. Paraphrased - “The documents are missing - We don’t know who, we don’t know when - but they are just missing. And dats dee trooff (apologies to Lily Tomlin). So quit bothering us. “

Odinga took care of his cousin after cousin helped in 2006 - in violation of the Logan Act.

At times you wonder if Obama was with Odinga in the summer of 1982. Up until or around August 1, 1982.....

Unfortunately for this scenario Obama, Sr’s, INS file shows quite clearly that he couldn’t have been in Kenya in August 1961. If he’d gone there the INS wouldn’t have let him back into the country and the Brits would probably have arrested him and certainly have revoked his passport.

The Lucas Smith BC looks nothing like a Kenyan BC. No British Commonwealth BC looks like that. So, yeah, its a forgery. A bad one at that, based on an American hospital souvenir. The Kenyans think he was born Kenyan because of his father. Hey, is Peter O’Toole, the actor, Irish, or a Brit? He’s got BCs from both countries and even he doesn’t know which is right, where, or when, he was born. The Irish say he’s Irish born, the Brits say he’s British and the Scots could say he’s Scottish because his mother was! Same problem, maybe.

I used to think perhaps the Smith BC was accurate but have changed my mind. It’s interesting - once I realized that Stanley Ann didn’t “have” to be the mother the whole picture became much clearer.
