Now we learn Obama raised in Singapore? 1990 Vanity Fair article contradicts Indonesia narrative
wnd ^ | June 18, 2012 | Jerome R. Corsi

MIAMI BEACH, Fla. – On the heels of the discovery of a 1991 publicity brochure stating Barack Obama was born in Kenya comes the unearthing of a 1990 Vanity Fair article stating Obama grew up in Singapore, not in Indonesia.

In both instances, the question immediately arises: Who was the source of the information that contradicts Obama’s accepted narrative?

In the case of the “born in Kenya” brochure, it’s almost certain that Obama was the source,

-snip-

Was Obama the source of the “raised in Singapore” statement in the Vanity Fair profile, or was it an error by the writer and editors?

At the time of the 1990 article, Obama was the newly elected first black president of the Harvard Law Review

When the truth comes out, it will become a Hollywood movie.

There are, apparently, all sorts of plot twists here.

There is a real trail of Stanley Ann in Indonesia. The VF article was probably written at the end of a drunken pub crawl and it’s amazing that the author hit the general Eastern direction, much less pin pointed a place. The folks who write for Vanity Fair and Rolling Stones are hard weekend drinkers, like the late Christopher Hitchens, though Hitch could have written a five thousand word flawless essay while blinkered out of his mind and never miss a point.

Obama we all know became a pathological liar when he convinced his Mom, when he was 2 years old that it was the dog who pooped in his pants not him. Typical Narcissist politician(could he be related to Wasserman?

It seems more and more like Obama, from the time of his conception and into adulthood was functioning as an agent for the Soviets.

Someday it’s going to come out that Bozo is the son of Malcolm X. You can bank on it. There is a strong resemblance and why else would all these assorted socialists/marxists/communists have identified, and taken such an interest in, this average, run of the mill half-black kid from (ahem) Hawaii. There has to be a reason why they used their influence, and money, to get him into Columbia and Harvard, to become the President of Harvard Law Review, to bring him to Chicago, to advance his political career, etc. There has to be a reason and it’s obviously not his intelligence! This guy is Malcolm X’s son!!

I’ve felt that the pathological liar otherwise known as Obama probably told a different story on different occasions based upon whom he was trying to impress or relate to. The author of the Duckworth article, like the literary agent, tried to take the blame for this, claiming he found this birth location on the Internets ... and of course, no specific site was ever provided by the reporter to back this up. I bet Obama told this birth location to Duckworth himself and that she told the reporter where she thought Obama was born. The previous paragraph and following paragraph are both attributed to Duckworth and it makes sense in context that the location of birth was directly from her. This Singapore claim is too funny. Wonder who Obama gave that information to??

And how about this one? In this one, the OBots blamed the writer Guira for sloppiness that Obama was born in Queens hospital instead of Kapiolani medical center.

Everyone is sloppy who get it wrong instead of Obama. LoL.

The State of Hawaii is not the final arbitrator of U.S. Citizenship.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, will provide Certified True Copies of a Certificate of Naturalization and return these along with the supplied documentation to the requester. USCIS cannot act as an agent of the U.S. Department of State by accepting fees on behalf of other government agencies, or forwarding documentation to any other government agency. All documentation coming from a requester, along with any documentation supplied by the Department of Homeland Security, will be returned to the requester.

If they did anything remotely close to the truth, the “narrative” would be that the big, bad Republicans (and Conservatives) were entirely to blame. If only those meddling rightie reactionary racists hadn’t been around, the U.S. would be Nirvana today, led by his supreme majesty, Emperor-President for life, Barack Obama Dada.

OBAMA’S ADOPTED SISTER
What information was taken to her grave?
You haven’t heard of Lia? Neither had we. The unknown, until now, adopted sister of Barack Hussein Obama died unexpectedly February 26, 2010. The USA media didn’t cover the story of this woman nor was her name found until the last few days. A competent WTPOTUS sleuth, Leza, and other researchers uncovered an article about an adopted “kakak” (literally “older sibling”, often translated as “brother”) in Indonesia, named Lia or Lee. Following up on a tidbit of information and other clues, more information was uncovered. Lia was an adopted sister, not a brother. Two Indonesian obituaries were just found. These tell the final tale of this woman nicknamed Lia, whom Obama called “Mbak Nun”.

http://wtpotus.wordpress.com/2010/08/07/liaobamas-adopted-sister-died-suddenly/

After living with Lolo and Ann for awhile, “Eny” [Annie] promised to give her a sister who would keep her company. Ann told her, ” Stay well, I’ll pick up your brother Barry.” Two years later, Barry left Hawaii and went to Indonesia to live with Lolo, his mother, and Lia. Lia remembered that Obama was four years younger than she.


The translation is atrocious, still looking for someone to come forward and translate the video. Anyone?

There was a Fogger who used to post here who blamed the Queen’s citation on the reporter using wikipedia. He had a meltdown when I showed there was information in that story that wasn’t on wikipedia and could have only come from Obama’s sister ... plus it was published where she worked, meaning if it was wrong, she had plenty of opportunity to get it corrected right away. It’s always someone else’s fault. Amazing how many incompetent people write stories about Obama. Must be a record.

"The author of the Duckworth article, like the literary agent, tried to take the blame for this, claiming he found this birth location on the Internets ... "

Is Duckworth suggesting a sloppy search on "the Internets" in 1990? Presuming that a reporter working for Vanity Fair had access to an Internet forerunner searchable information network (Lexis?), how many hits would have come back with Singapore as the location of dude's rearing (I did not see the article mention place of birth), considering he was then a fairly obscure, if upcoming personage?

I want to see the original interview notes. ;)

No, I probably wasn’t clear. The Duckworth story was written by a Honolulu reporter in 2006. He blamed the birth in Indonesia claim on an Internet search and not on Tammy Duckworth making the claim. What isn’t clear is how a famous “native son” like Obama wasn’t known to this reporter or why he would have to search the Internet to see where he was born. Further, what site would have said Obama was born in Indonesia in 2006?? He had already made a famous speech at the Democrat National Convention in 2004.

My main point was that the Honolulu reporter took the blame for this born in Indonesia “mistake” the same way the literary agent recently took the blame for the born in Kenya claim from 1990.

Okay, thanks.

Actually it was also a failure of reading comprehension on my part, because I saw the word "article" in your sentence and keyed in on that to the exclusion of "Duckworth" and so ASSumed you were referring to Alise O'Shaughnessy who authored the 1990 Vanity Fair piece.

It's of course easy to see why I might confuse "Duckworth" and "O'Shaughnessy since they're so similar.

Interesting claims from the Vanity Fair story:
The sense of mission derives in part from his experiences in the Third World. He saw brutal poverty while growing up in Singapore with his mother, an anthropologist, and his half-brothers and -sisters in Kenya still live hand to mouth at times.
Obama "saw" brutal poverty in Singapore (Indonesia) and THAT gave him a "sense of mission"?? His half-brother and half-sister still live hand to mouth?? So one would think he would go back to Singapore (Indonesia) or to Kenya to fight poverty, but no, he's going "to tackle the quagmire of America’s inner cities." Here's the ironic quote:
Federal money alone won’t do it, he argues.
What happened to THAT Obama who didn't think Federal money alone would solve the problems?? Then this next quote is another doozy:
Obama ... responds warily to the assumption that he himself will run for office. “If I go into politics it should grow out of work I’ve done on the local level, not because I’m some media creation.”
Wow, talk about total hypocrisy.

Right, look at the last sentence in that article
where it refers to Jack Ryan dropping out of the
race because “Republican leaders questioned his
integrity”.

The Chicago machine destroyed Ryan by releasing
his sealed divorce proceedings. Every thing
associated with the Obama narrative is made up
of whole cloth.

...Also not mentioned is that IL had an excellent GOP Senator named Peter Fitzgerald. He beat the execrable Combiner Democrat Carol Moseley-Braun (”Mostly Fraud”, or she who liked dining with African dictators) in the general election after beating a Combiner (what you call the Chicago Machine) RINO in the primary who tried to destroy him for the general election.

The IL bipartisan Combine went to work on Fitzgerald and the GOP wing, spearheaded by their enforcer thug Ray LaHood, then a Congressman, essentially did everything possible to run Fitzgerald out of office so they could put their man in (party didn’t matter, just so long as it was a Combiner). Fitzgerald got sick of fighting two wars and retired. What did LaHood (AKA LaThug) get for his part in running out Fitzgerald ? Zero gave him, this “loyal Republican”, a prime Cabinet post, where he remains today.

Just bidness as usual, Illinois Combiner-style.

What’s the status of your research on Neal Boortz’s sister?

I told Neal Boortz’s sister was teaching at St. Francis of Assisi school in Jakarta when Barry Soetoro was enrolled there and you found an article where Neal stated his sister taught a Punahou when Obama was enrolled there.

Boortz’s sister is an eyewitness to Obama’s entire primary school education. Have you tried to contact her?

If I post a scan of a document, then the first words out of your mouth will be, “It’s a fake!”

Consequently, you will actually have to get off the couch and obtain copies for yourself.

Do you want to see Obama’s Certificate of Naturalization? It’s at USCIS, Lee’s Summit, MO.

Do you want to talk to an eyewitness to Obama’s entire primary school education? Find Neal Boortz’s sister and ask her about it.

Or you can post questions and concerns on the net. It’s up to you.

That's funny. I attended the Singapore American School with Tammy Duckworth. I didn't know she moved to Honolulu and graduated from high school there.

I lived in Singapore from 1983 to 1985 and I have to say on more than one occasion I have thought Obama's high school photos look like he lived in Singapore about the time that I did. I chalked it up to the era (OP t-shirts and Quicksilver board shorts)and the general Pacific "post-colonial" environment of both those places.
