(Apr. 7, 2010) — Various news outlets have matter-of-factly stated in the recent past that Barack Obama was born in Kenya, just as Obama’s wife Michelle stated in a video which surfaced recently and was reported by The Post & Email here. Consequently it is no wonder that many doubt Obama’s claim of a Hawaiian birth.
One of the stories was published by National Public Radio, and others are from various African newspapers. One of them, the “Sunday Standard,” proudly announced Obama’s “Kenyan-born” pedigree in the story’s headline. “African Travel Magazine” published the following news brief regarding a trip which Obama made there, most likely in 2006:
SECURITY CONCERNS FOR TOURISM AS SENATOR OBAMA JETS INTO KENYA
As Kenyan born US Senator Barack Obama jets into Kenya today as part of his African tour, concerns have once again been raised on the security preparations for other visitors and residents. While Senator Obama will of course be accorded security from the presidential protection details, just a few days ago the Russian Ambassador was hurt when his car was stopped outside Nairobi and he was robbed of valuables. Reports have also emerged of a top of the range luxury tented safari camp in the Masai Mara having been raided and British and American tourists robbed of their belongings but reportedly not hurt. The robbers made off across the border with Tanzania, reminding the tourism sector that security is an ongoing issue and complacency has no place when it comes to such crucial matters.
Another, The Nigerian Observer, published a detailed account of the last days of the 2008 campaign, mentioning little-known, third-party candidates accurately and stating that Obama had been born in Kenya.
An Indonesian online newspaper, Indonesia Matters, had stated directly after the 2008 presidential election that Obama had been born in Kenya. In 2009 the article was scrubbed from the internet, although it has reappeared along with a Facebook page with a link to it which refers to Obama as “Barry Soetoro.”
An opinion post dated February 5, 2007 entitled “Secrets of Obama Family Unlocked,” while not touching on his birthplace, stated:
Yet there are details in Obama’s life that have yet to be subjected to full scrutiny. It may not be the information itself that matters, according to Galston, but “how Obama talks about the facts as they emerge and handles questions and controversies.”
The Chicago Sun-Times columnist Lynn Sweet was the first to spot in 2004, when Obama burst on the national stage at the Democratic party convention, that his memoir, Dreams from My Father, contained “composite” characters and changed names.
“Except for public figures and his family, it is impossible to know who is real and who is not,” she pointed out.
If Obama was not truthful in his books regarding people’s names and events, how can we be sure that he was truthful when he posted an image of a Hawaiian Certification of Live Birth on his website, claiming he was born in Hawaii? When neither hospital in existence in 1961 birth will claim his birth and numerous publications have stated he was born in Kenya, what are we Americans, who know that only a “natural born Citizen” can serve as President, supposed to believe?
There is only one person who has stated that Obama was born in Hawaii: Dr. Chiyome Fukino of the Hawaii Health Department. Not one other official from that state will confirm Fukino’s assertion. The most anyone will say is “I believe he’s born here” in the face of no real proof. If the Certification of Live Birth were conclusive evidence of a Hawaiian birth, State Senator Will Espero would not have made such a statement, nor would he have introduced a bill designed to limit public access to information in order to shield the Health Department from further inquiries.
With Obama’s own wife stating in a public forum that Kenya is his “home country,” when did the “born in Hawaii” story begin to surface? How can someone be born in two places at once?
And with our government refusing to respond to our requests for the truth in the face of overwhelming evidence of fraud on Obama’s part, what are we to do?
