When It Comes to Obama, Who is Obscuring Information?

AND WHY?

by Sharon Rondeau

(Oct. 27, 2019) — The Post & Email has found that a statement contradicting the standard life narrative of Barack Hussein Obama by his first press secretary, Robert Gibbs, appears to now be suppressed in the Google search engine and, in one case, removed from its place on the internet entirely.

As we reported last month, Gibbs had told reporters in October 2008 that Obama’s grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, “raised him in Hawaii from the time he was born until the moment he left for college.”  Referring to Obama, Gibbs continued, “As he said at the Democratic Convention, she poured everything she had into him.”

Obama’s “standard” life story states that he was born in Honolulu, HI and that he lived there until he was six years old, when he reportedly moved to Indonesia with his mother after she married an Indonesian citizen, Lolo Soetoro.  Obama allegedly returned to Hawaii to live with his grandparents at age 10.

Despite its departure from that narrative, Gibbs’s statement apparently went unchallenged by the mainstream media.

The same Google search we used at the time to capture Gibbs’s statement, which was repeated throughout mainstream and secondary media, now shows just two entries containing the exact language.

The first entry takes the reader to the “Ben Smith Blog” at Politico, which contains Gibbs’s intact quote.

 

The Post & Email had initially found Gibbs’s surprising statement in an article in The (Kenya) Standard and sourced it in a general Google search to Reuters and other mainstream outlets since The Standard did not provide a link.

On Sunday we discovered that the Reuters article is still on the internet but does not appear in a Google search.  However, it does appear when using the DuckDuckGo search engine.

In the Google search, the second entry, a book about Obama’s 2008 campaign by Niall Stanage, the wording appears but can no longer be found in the Google book itself.

Initially landing on the Google Book page on Sunday yielded the following result for this writer:

A second attempt changed the screen but did not locate the wording:

Thereafter, the first page of the Google search for Gibbs’s statement contains only secondary sources which reproduced the quote, including The Post & Email’s article at the bottom of the page.

As of this writing, the second page of the Google search contains only one secondary-source with the wording.

At the time, numerous mainstream outlets reported Gibbs’s remarks, including The Washington Post, as evidenced by a search using DuckDuckGo:

    Night trains may be part of the overall success of a rail business, but along with a night train one has to contend with not being able to SEE the full truth of the road ahead no matter how many headlights are used. Train engineer? Your seat awaits you in the caboose to bring up the rear.

    aka Barry Soetoro, aka Barack HUSSEIN Zer0Bama is/was the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the citizens of the U.S.A.

    It shouldn’t come as a shock that different search engines give different results. Search engines tailor results based on your browsing history so they will vary even among different users. I hardly see this as evidence of some conspiracy.

    Over 11 years seeking the full identity of supposed-CIA-narrative Barry Soetoro-Obama II…with complete syndicated presIDential-blackout by the US Government, by the corporate yellow stream media, by all Secretaries of State et al.

    Now Big Tech herein is engaging in whitewash, hogwash and brainwash to quietly fluff and buff the enigmatic past history of Obama’s shady presIDential-narrative.

    Oceans of blogs generated, reams of scholarly research published, countless websites created, 0% “birther” lawsuit success in the nation’s syndicated courts, newspaper articles paid for and distributed in several big cities to no avail, LT Zullo’s damning press releases on ID-fraud, Sheriff’s Kits handed out to Congressmen, etc., etc., etc….and we still do not know the full identity of the highest office-holder of our land, Fake presIDent Soetoro-Obama II!

    And We the People, the first three words of the US Constitution, are ultimately responsible for this shabby state of affairs…not a quisling Congress, not the corporate-controlled yellow stream media, not state governments et al…WE THE PEOPLE, DOWN HERE ON MAIN STREET USA, ARE MOST RESPONSIBLE FOR OBAMA II’s USURPATION 08-28-08- TODAY!

    Think of this: it took only 3% of America’s colonial population to free itself from Great Britain during the Revolutionary War…it took some 2% of America’s population (= some 650,000 deaths) to convince the South to abolish slavery during the Civil War…it took some 420,000 American deaths to end the deaths of some 60,000,000 lost souls during WWII…and one brain (= Donald John Trump) of some 7,500,000,000 living brains today is altering the position of USA on planet Earth.

    So, what if 1% of the US population (3,270,000 Main Street USA patriots) signed a petition demanding the full identity, and prosecution, of “Barack Hussein Soetoro-Obama II” and those signatures were collected, and posted, on this premier Post & Email website for all humanity to witness?

    Said signed P&E petition would go to President Trump before the 2020 election.

    Comments? NOTHING ELSE SO FAR IS GAINING TRACTION ON THIS DARK STAIN ON AMERICA’S HISTORY.

    Robert Epstein, PhD, is an expert on the devious tactics Google is using to manipulate public opinion in favor of the Democrat Party and far-left agenda.

Search there on his name.

    Excellent, well documented and needed article showing Google is still at it and in many, many ways. Their tentacles are everywhere online.I and my attorney for my lawsuit Kerchner et al vs Obama and Congress et al were the victims of these tactics by Google for years, as have been many other conservatives. And Google is not the only online operation doing it. It’s like living through the novel 1984 in how Google and others are re-writing the past so they can then control the future narrative.
