“The Five” Commentator Invokes “Obama as a Child in Kenya”


by Sharon Rondeau

Greg Gutfeld is a pundit on “The Five,” aired at 9:00 p.m. weeknights on the Fox News Channel

(Aug. 10, 2017) — In its final segment on Thursday night, Fox News’s “The Five” discussed a claim made by actor Will Smith and reported in the media that Barack Hussein Obama expressed support for Smith playing his character in a film.

One of the the five pundits seated at the table, Greg Gutfeld, commented that Obama reportedly said that Smith has “the ears” to play his part.

The team of commentators then began speculating on who would play the parts of others in the Obama White House.  At 9:47 p.m. EDT, Gutfeld interjected, “I wonder who’s going to play Obama as a child in Kenya.”

Over the years of the Obama regime, Gutfeld made a number of similar comments which appeared to refer to various news reports stating that Obama was born in Kenya and not Hawaii, as he claims.

Gutfeld has himself described Obama as “Kenyan-born,” which is supported by a 2004 AP article in the East Africa Sunday Standard written about Obama’s then-U.S. Senate run.

Obama’s public life story says that he was born in Honolulu on August 4, 1961.  In Illinois, now considered his “home state,” the governor has just signed a bill making August 4 “Barack Obama Day” beginning next year.

Before Obama ran for president, various credible news reports stated that he was born in Indonesia or Kenya, respectively, with some later altered to say that he was “born in Hawaii.” His 1991 biography prepared to promote his first book, “Dreams From My Father,” stated that he was “born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.”

Various versions of Obama’s life narrative have surfaced, including that he went with his mother to live in Indonesia at age 2, 4 and 6.  The most commonly-related story is that he lived in Indonesia between the ages of 6 and 10 after attending kindergarten in Hawaii, then returned to his then-home state to attend the exclusive Punahou School from fifth grade through graduation.

An AP report from 1990 featuring Obama’s appointment as editor of the Harvard Law Review states that he attended all public schools in Hawaii.

Approximately two weeks ago, Mark Knoller of CBS News reported, without evidence, that Obama was a member of the Boy Scouts.

A Washington Post article from June 2008 reported that Obama was “raised in the Kansas heartland.”  The Post did not respond to an inquiry from this publication for evidence supporting its claim.

In 2007, UPI reported that Obama’s birth hospital was Queen’s Medical Center, while Obama has claimed publicly that he was born at Kapiolani Medical Center, a claim the hospital has refused to corroborate.

On April 27, 2011, the White House released what it said was a PDF image of Obama’s “long-form” birth certificate obtained from the Hawaii Department of Health (HDOH).  However, within a day of its release, graphics professionals denounced the image as a poor forgery.

In August 2011, an investigation was launched by the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) into the authenticityc of the image, delegated to its volunteer Cold Case Posse.  Lead investigator Mike Zullo not only reported the team’s initial findings to then-Sheriff Joseph Arpaio within a few days, but also continued the investigation well past the five-year mark.

On March 1, 2012, Zullo held a press conference in which he stated that probable cause existed to believe that the birth certificate image is a “computer-generated forgery.”  He also said that that Obama’s purported Selective Service registration form is fraudulent.

Although the probe did not focus on Obama’s birthplace, Zullo stated at a second presser on July 17, 2012 that there were doubts that Obama’s life narrative, which claims that his mother was Stanley Ann Dunham of Hawaii and his father Barack Hussein Obama of Kenya, is accurate.

Prior to his first inauguration and throughout Obama’s two terms in the White House, Congress refused to probe Obama’s background to assure that he met the “natural born Citizen” requirement in the Constitution for the president and commander-in-chief.  The media, for its part, also refused to investigate, instead ridiculing anyone who expressed an interest in the many probative records which Obama never released.

Regarding Obama’s childhood, on March 2, 2011, The UK Telegraph quoted former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee as having stated as a matter of fact that Obama’s “having grown up in Kenya” affected his view of the U.S.-UK relationship.

Kenya was a British colony until December 12, 1963, when it declared its independence.  Prior to that, it was often referred to as “Kenya Colony.”

During a campaign speech in 2008, Michelle Obama called Kenya her husband’s “home country.”

There is evidence that Fox News Channel monitored Zullo’s third and final press conference of December 15, 2016, during which he revealed that two forensic analysts commissioned to study the birth certificate image arrived at similar conclusions to his own in regard to its authenticity based on “nine points of forgery.”

    Of the courts that have addressed the issue, they have all ruled birth in the United States is sufficient to confer natural-born citizenship. And some of those have expressly rejected the misreading of Minor.

    Perhaps Laity can provide enlightenment as to his future plans now that the New York courts have rejected his latest case.

    Johnathan, Obama is our nations second “never president”. Chester Arthur was also ineligible because he was not an NBC.

    Bendore, You are not correct. the Law requires that a President and a VP be an NBC. An NBC is one who is born IN the United States to Parents who are BOTH Americans themselves. Minor v Happersett, US Supreme Court (1874). Obama is NOT eligible. “There is NO ‘President’ Obama”: http://www.thepostemail.com/09/17/2010/there-is-no-president-obama/

    So what if he was born in Kenya, he had a US Citizen mother, hence according to US Law he was eligible to be President.

    It I odd that people believe that a birth certificate always shows the true fact.
    A child is born, one birth certificate, the mother indicates the facts on the birth certificate are in error, another birth certificate
    the child is adopted, another birth certificate,
    the child is abandoned and placed in foster care, and adopted again, another birth certificate.
    The grown child becomes a witness to a crime and given protection by issuing a new identity, another birth certificate
    An then the grown child files a false application for a birth certificate and gets another late birth certificate
    And all of the birth certificates are certified as being true copies of the birth report.
    And in all of the cases the public is never allowed to see the facts of the life events.
    And that, dear friends, is why birth certificates never prove identity.

    A collection of news stories and comments about Obama promoting himself as Kenyan born for many years in the decades prior to him deciding to run for the Presidency. The so called “birther” controversy was created by the birth location, citizenship, and early life narrative chameleon Obama, himself: https://www.scribd.com/lists/3248475/Kenyan-Gov-Officials-African-Newspapers-Obama-1991-Bio-Barry-Obama-Obama-Family-Mbrs-and-other-Accounts-Reporting-Obama-is-Kenyan-Born

    These guys know they can get ratings and clicks by trolling birthers.

    Evan at this site birther stories get more comments than Judy stories (if you minus Judy comments about himself).

    The ultimate betrayal of any reason We the People had for believing, trusting, faithfully following any political pundit, none of whom have stood up, had the intellectual honesty, the patriotism, the morality, the respect for their oath of office, and screamed….The Emperor appears without clothes! I am personally disgusted with them all, those who kowtowed, and those who ordered the kowtowing!
