(Sep. 20, 2019) — A blog post at “Indonesia Matters” dated November 6, 2008 states that “Barry Soetoro aka Barack Obama” was “democratically elected President of the US” on that date.

The writer then illustrated what he/she believed to be Obama’s “Indonesia link” by recounting the narrative that as a six-year-old boy, “Obama” relocated to Indonesia with his mother, Stanley Ann Dunham Obama, due to her marriage to Lolo Soetoro, an Indonesian citizen.

Just before detailing Obama’s reported connection to Indonesia, the writer stated:

Barrak Hussein Obama II was born to a white American Ann Dunham and Kenyan Barrak Hussein Obama Snr, in Nyang’oma Kogelo now in Kenya.

As we reported earlier this week, on June 27, 2004, The (Kenya) Sunday Standard declared then-U.S. Senate candidate “Barrack Obama” as “Kenyan-born.”  Subsequent references to Obama’s origins at the same outlet show that Obama’s birth narrative was changed to say he was “born in Hawaii” beginning in 2008.

Our featuring of The Standard‘s article generated much discussion and link-sharing both supporting and refuting the claim of Obama’s “Kenyan” birth.

Between November 2008 and March 2010, several Kenyan officials, including members of Parliament, declared Obama as born in their country, not the United States.

On October 9, 2008, NPR, which receives part of its funding from the U.S. government, reported:

Ofeibea Quist-Arcton, NPR’s Africa-based correspondent, tells why her beat has proved one of the most interesting this year.

She discusses the stories that have been painful and devastating for many nations on the continent such as the violent political fights that have led to power-sharing deals.

She also describes the stories that have been exciting, including the U.S. presidential race of Kenyan-born Sen. Barack Obama.

In a quote from then-Obama campaign spokesman Robert Gibbs reported not only in The Standard but also by Reuters and other U.S. mainstream outlets, Gibbs was noted to have said just before the November 2008 election of Obama’s grandmother, who was said to be terminally ill, “Along with his mother and his grandfather, she raised him in Hawaii from the time he was born until the moment he left for college. As he said at the Democratic Convention, she poured everything she had into him.”

The Standard‘s October 22, 2008 article appears to be largely a reproduction of a Reuters article dated October 20, 2008. Gibbs’s statement as to the timeline of Obama’s grandmother’s care of her grandson is inconsistent with Obama’s publicly-proffered life narrative that he was born in Hawaii, spent four years in Indonesia between the ages of 6 and 10 with his mother and stepfather, and did not live with his grandparents until returning from Indonesia at age 10.

American media has not explained the discrepancy between Gibbs’s statement and Obama’s commonly-told life narrative which includes his alleged time in Indonesia, an item which became the basis for a feature film.

On April 27, 2011, the White House released not only what it claimed was Obama’s “long-form” birth certificate, but also a reproduction of the short-form Certification of Live Birth in a color scheme differing from the original released in June 2008 for which Gibbs later took credit.

On May 18, 2012, The Daily Mail reported, as a result of a Breitbart article published the day before, that Obama’s first literary agent, Acton & Dytel, in 1991 produced a biographical pamphlet describing Obama as “born in Kenya to an American anthropologist and a Kenyan finance minister and was raised in Indonesia, Hawaii, and Chicago.”

Mike Zullo, the lead investigator of a 5+-year probe into the “long-form” image finding it to be fraudulent, has reported that Obama was not present in Hawaii before the age of five but rather, in Indonesia at that age.

Last year Zullo reported that contrary to Obama’s life narrative, it is “an open secret” in Washington, DC that Obama was born outside of the United States and was therefore unable to meet the U.S. Constitution’s “natural born Citizen” requirement for the presidency.

Earlier this week, The Standard did not respond to The Post & Email’s request for comment about its 2004 article in which it described Obama as “Kenyan-born,” nor did the Associated Press, to whom credit is given at the foot of The Standard‘s aforementioned article.

During a public address in 2008, Michelle Obama described Kenya as her husband’s “home country.”

In 2014, NBC journalist Chris Jansing stated Obama was “born in Kenya” in what was later said to be “an epic slip-up” hearkening back to “a claim that has been thoroughly debunked since it first appeared during Obama’s original run for office in 2008.”

In a departure from all other narratives, a June 30, 2008 article in The Washington Post reported Obama as having been “raised in the Kansas heartland.”  The Post, too, failed to respond to our request for comment.

In late 2007, Obama admirer and “Hardball” anchor Chris Matthews claimed that Obama was “born in Indonesia,” echoing a 2006 report from Will Hoover, then of The Honolulu Advertiser.  Both later changed their stories to say that Obama was “born in Hawaii,” with Matthews excoriating anyone, including Donald Trump, questioning Obama’s “natural born” status or suggesting that presidential candidates should provide proof of their birthplace and eligibility in future elections.

On Friday The Post & Email spoke with Zullo about The Standard‘s 2004 proclamation that Obama was “Kenyan-born,” only to alter that claim in 2008.  “It’s of no consequence that he was ‘Kenyan-born’ running for the Senate, so they would say it,” Zullo observed.  “No one has ever said he wasn’t born in Kenya.  They just say he was born in Hawaii.  I never see anybody making the claim; they just do it in a roundabout way.  A parallel situation is that of Ilhan Omar, the Somali-born congresswoman.”

  1. HAVING HIS BIRTH CERTIFICATE …BS … I can make anybodies BIRTH CERTIFICATE for ANY Country — and STATE….PERFECT and can never be denied..It might not show in the Hospital where it is from – but it will be a perfect document. With a small “GIFT” to someone in Admin – he could wind up in t6heir file at the Hospital in the U.S. BUT, birth certificates from another country – with midwives and such…grandmothers who helped deliver….well – toss that phony B/Certificate out the window.. The man is a fake — no 2 ways about it…

  2. The US Congress and US Supreme Court knew January 2009 that Berry Soetoro aka barack hussein obama did not meet US Constitutional law under Article ll Section 1 Clause 5 to hold the office of US President ! In 2011 many in the US Congress were given Evidence of Berry Soetoro aka barack hussein obama ‘ fraud by a LEGAL Law enforcement agency from Arizona MCSO and many said they did not want Race Riots to start if they questioned Obama’s right to hold office . The US Congress let RACE trump the US Constitution all because they were afraid of Race Riots !

  3. IDEA, for example: AFTER the 2020 election, with Trump in his second term, IMAGINE a series of public BILLBOARDS springing up across the country, showing the SIMPLE, EASILY UNDERSTOOD MESSAGE:

    “OBAMA WAS BORN IN KENYA and not in Hawaii as he falsely claims” accompanied by a large image of the Lucas Daniel Smith Obama Kenyan Birth Certificate! WOW! That might be quite effective, and certainly worth the money if it could significantly help save the future of the U.S.A. for our grandchildren.

    btw : To my knowledge, we have not heard yet back from either Mike Zullo or Dr. Jerome Corsi with an attempt to defend their position that the the CERTIFIED AUTHENTIC LDS HISTORICAL DOCUMENT is a forgery! (following my September 21st direct challenge to them both on this thread).

    Tic Toc, Tic Toc

  4. I agree with Bruce Steadman. I’m not worried about the 2020 election because the Democrats have all but ensured President Trump will be re-elected. However, political history indicates that the odds favor a switch of parties in the White House after one party has occupied it for consecutive terms…it has happened only once since 1950.

    President Ronald Reagan aptly said: “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.” IMHO, America, as founded and for 243 years has been the greatest experiment in liberty the world has ever known, is only two elections away from possible extinction.

  5. Sharon – Yes! My mistake. My previous comment should have read 2020 to 2024. Sorry!

    Say It Again: Messages Are More Effective When Repeated



    In advertising, the term “effective frequency” is used to describe the number of times a consumer must be exposed to an advertising message before the marketer gets the desired response, whether that be buying a product, or something as simple as remembering a message.



  6. IMO – We Patriots likely have just the incredibly short 2010 to 2014 time slot (Trump’s 2nd Term) to expose Barack Hussein Obama II nationally as a KENYAN-BORN liar, fraud and impostor.

    Thus, the majority of awake Americans must quickly come to ACCEPT and ACT APPROPRIATELY UPON the PROVEN FACT of Obama’s TREASON and the COVERUP of his treasonous activity by our MSM and DEEP STATE enablers!

    We need all the help we can get in getting the job done in time! Be assured our beloved country’s future depends on it!

  7. And the “letter” was not really a letter at all or scan of one. It was a computer generated pieced together digital document. The so called “letter” disappeared after WND.com and other investigators questioned its authenticity and after Obama sychophant and booster Abercrombie was caught saying things and allegedly reading things from/in the “letter” that were not there. See this article from 2009. For some reason the images are gone. Possibly they were scrubbed in some way. But if you read the text of the article you can clearly understand why that “letter” was made to disappear. It was another cut and pasted using HTML this time, forged Obama related document: https://www.wnd.com/2009/07/103503/

    Lew (or is it really the notorious old-timer Obot disinformation specialist named Kevin) is still not discussing Obama’s forged draft registration card which was uncovered by a retired ICE agent: http://www.debbieschlussel.com/4428/exclusive-did-next-commander-in-chief-falsify-selective-service-registration-never-actually-register-obamas-draft-registration-raises-serious-questions/ and later verified as being forged by Chief Investigator Mike Zullo working for AZ Sheriff Joe Arpaio in a 5 year investigation into two of Obama’s key ID documents.

    Lew and others of his gas lighting ilk are trying to hide the truth. But the truth is like trying to hold a beach ball under water. It will surface eventually. The truth will come out for all the nation to see and many will be prosecuted once Trump has cleaned house in that corrupt and constitutionally disloyal swamp down in DC.

  9. “In July 2009, World Net Daily quoted Kristy Watanabe, a spokeswoman at Hawaii Pacific Health, which includes the Kapiolani hospital, as saying: “Our comment to everyone who has been calling is that federal law does not permit us to provide any more details concerning information about Obama’s birth without authorization from Mr. Obama.”

    “However, the medical center has promoted a January 2009 letter Obama wrote on White House stationery to congratulate the medical center on its centennial celebration. “Kapiolani was one of Hawaii’s earliest hospitals, and it has served many generations of Hawaii’s people with distinction,” the letter says. “As a beneficiary of the excellence of Kapiolani Medical Center — the place of my birth — I am pleased to add my voice to your chorus of supporters.”

    “The Foundations of Hawaii Pacific Health published the letter in the spring 2009 issue of its Inspire magazine, and the medical center posted video of Abercrombie reading Obama’s letter at the centennial dinner on its website.”


  10. Lew Harper, There used to be an article on a site called Earthlink in which EVERY hospital in Hawaii, including Kapiolani DENIED that Obama was born there. That’s telling. Even if the slightest inkling that Obama was born in Kapiolani existed they would have excitedly grabbed for the dubious honor. They did NOT. They actually denied it.

  11. Lew: I have no idea who Peter Boyles called or spoke to or when. Clarify your seed. As you said, anybody can say anything. Especially in an unofficial phone call. If you know Boyles called, who did he speak to and when. If you know, provide the name and title of the person to whom he spoke. But Lew, I do remember that the Editor of this newspaper tried (and many others such as Dr. Jerome Corsi, Atty Orly Taitz, and Chief Investigator Mike Zullo for example) tried to get official confirmation from Kapi’olani as to Obama’s claim (which Obama starting making in 2008 after dropping the Queens Hospital claim he made earlier such as in 2004), that he Obama was born there at Kapi’olani. Kapi’olani has never officially confirmed that Obama was born there. No hospital in Hawaii has officially confirmed that Obama was born at their hospital. See: Kapiolani Medical Center Still Won’t Confirm Obama’s Birth: https://www.thepostemail.com/2011/04/27/kapiolani-medical-center-still-wont-confirm-obamas-birth/

    On another key Obama early life event, tell us Lew what you know about Obama’s Draft Registration Card..See this: http://www.kerchner.com/protectourliberty/archives.htm

  12. Lew: Maybe you are thinking of Queens Hospital in Honolulu. Obama always claimed he was born there until he ran for President. ;-) You know as well as anyone here that Obama’s early life narrative was an enigma wrapped in a mystery. Obama claimed one thing in one decades and then another in another decade. You seem to be on a mission here spreading seeds of doubt and disinformation in this online newspapers various threads. You are a clever “social engineering” mind manipulating Obot in your own mind, aren’t you. Have you read this: https://www.thepostemail.com/2011/08/15/exclusive-tim-adams-master-thesis-%E2%80%9Cthere-is-no-birth-certificate-for-obama%E2%80%9D/ and this https://www.scribd.com/lists/3166684/Obama-s-Birth-Cert-Other-Key-Docs-Draft-Reg-Card-Forged-Expert-Reports and this https://www.scribd.com/document/240311758/The-Making-of-an-Anti-American-President-by-Lawrence-Sellin-PhD-Colonel-U-S-Army-Retired.

  13. A blast from the past about Google censorship and manipulation of what search results people can see or not see was observed by me back in Oct 2008 and became increasingly obvious. I wrote this article back in July 2009. What the major conservative talking heads are talking about now re Google we in the Obama is not eligible movement have observed since Oct 2008 and have been the target of sand boxing, down ranking, shadow banning. politically biased and manipulated search algorithms, and many other adverse tactics. The CEO of Google was in on it and working with Obama and his enablers to protect him. See this blast from the past article of July 2009 re Google censorship of conservative constitutional speech online: https://cdrkerchner.wordpress.com/2009/07/27/censorship-by-google-and-blogspot-robots-altered-search-engine-algorithms-biased-google-staff-internet-cyber-attacks-on-conservative-blogswebsites-2/

  14. Reading various articles and comments here for the past 11 years, I don’t recall an article or comment from any official associated with Kapi’olani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital (now called Kapi’olani Medical Center for Women & Children) in Honolulu, Hawaii, verifying that Barack Hussein Obama II (Jr) was born there.

    Anybody can indeed say anything. Including Barack Hussein Obama, aka Barry Soetoro, aka Soebarkah.

  15. Reading through these various statements, I don’t see any from the Kenyan official tasked with issuing Kenyan birth certificates.

    As one journalist once wrote, “Anybody can say anything”

  16. A very important 7 minute video to watch concerning big tech censorship and gas lighting and/or omission and bias re political information served to you when you use their search and/or social media services. They can do it in ways that you don’t even know it is happening. And most of big tech is infested with Obot types but ones that do their “social engineering” far-left dirty work behind the scenes. Watch this short video: https://youtu.be/kMU2Vo6_CEQ

  17. Here is my collection of sources reporting and stating that Obama was born in Kenya: 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

    Bob, I think you have a collection of links too, if I recall. If still active add it to this comment thread for the perusal of any newbie to this subject readers, AP researchers, or government officials browsing this article and thread.

  18. WHAT IS THE TRUTH? — regarding the birth narrative of Barack Hussein Obama II

    After much discussion on this extremely important topic now for about 10 YEARS, it comes back to this:

    The LUCAS DANIEL SMITH certified authentic, August 4, 1961 Long Form Obama Birth Certificate from the Coast Province General Hospital in Mombasa, Kenya HAS NEVER BEEN ACCURATELY DEBUNKED BY ANYBODY– and most especially by either MIKE ZULLO or DR. JEROME CORSI (both of whom I otherwise HIGHLY RESPECT and GRATEFULLY COMMEND for their major contributions to the Obama Fraud Issue)


    IMO, The silent majority of the American People (a busy, hard working, wonderful group of folks) WILL NEVER PROPERLY UNDERSTAND THE ACCURATE BUT EXTREMELY COMPLICATED NBC ISSUE WITH OBAMA!
