It's now a granted, that President Obama's soaring abilities at artful prevarication may even surpass his legendarily singular abilities at teleprompted oral wizardry. We saw this recently when Obama came out in a speech and insisted that he has spent less than both the George Bush and Ronald Reagan Presidencies, despite his having run up more debt than all other Presidents in US History "combined." So, how does the one reconcile itself from the other?
It doesn't , ladies and Gentlemen, his utterances were nothing more nor less than certifiably loony, bald-faced lies.
However, as the American people and the Conservative Media learn more and more about the President and his mysterious past, we will get to see more and more of the vetting which was largely missing from the 2008 campaign. On that particular note, we recently were led to a Youtube video in which Obama, during the 2008 Presidential campaign, spoke of "his father 's" return home from WWII, unfortunately, this statement didn't pass the smell test either, his Father could only have been in grade school, at best, based upon his age at the time of WWII:
Obama: "My Father served in World War II"
Indeed, Mr. President? if Obama Sr, who is Obama's true father, did actually serve in WWII, then he could only have been anywhere from three to nine years old, being that he was born in 1936 and WWII started in 1939, quite a warrior, eh? That dog won't hunt? Ok, then let's do what the mainstream media does and see if we can help cover for Obama's being found out in yet another outrageous lie.
In fact, lets be generous and assume the Messiah was referring to his step father, Lolo Soetoro, who was one year older than Barack Senior, making him anywhere from four to eleven years old as a combat veteran? Hmmm...still doesn't pass the smell test.
Well, Ok , How about Michelle's father, Frasier Robinson III, surely he served in WWII? Umm...unfortunately, no, he was also born in 1935, making him far too young to conscript himself into service. So, who's left? Oh! How about Michelle's grandfather, Fraser Robinson Jr? Er...unfortunately, no couldn't have been him, he had only one arm according to news stories, making him a reject on the war front.
Which leaves us with one other possible candidate, that being Obama's grandfather on his mother's side, Ann Dunham. Cross your fingers, surely we can find the Messiah some bit of salvation here! Aha! Obama's grandfather, Stanley Dunham served in WWII in the European theater in the ordinance division. So, there you have it, although it wasn't actually Obama's father, his maternal grandfather did serve in WWII.
But then, why didn't Obama simply tell the whole truth and say "Grandfather, especially after dedicating an entire book to his Kenyan father, Namely, "Dreams From My Father?" The true point of this story being that while our premise is totally accurate, when you read our researched facts, done on the fly, and in order and in real time, we come up with a plausible explanation, that exonerates Obama, at least to a point, while also leaving the core meaning of the headline intact and totally truthful.
Which is often how the Mainstream Media treats most damaging facts to members of the Right-Wing in their political stories. Well, except for the last part, where we give a plausible explanation--something that the Media rarely extends to our politico's on the Right.
But, this is the essential difference between the Conservative Media, in large part, and the Mainstream Media, for the most part.
However, this also leads us into a recent Mainstream media article written by Jake Tapper of ABC News, in which he referred to the President's birth certificate problems as "nonsense" while disparaging Donald Trump for making reference to Obama's birth certificates issues.
Below is the story's headline:
"Romney Surrogate Donald Trump Doubles-Down on Birther Nonsense While Romney Campaign Stays Mum"
So, rather than make simple passing reference to Jake Tapper's dazzling display of unquestioning comradeship with the Obama White House, why not take Tapper to issue on the subject? Below is our counter-arguments to Tapper's biased assertions, as we would pointedly maintain that the only actual journalistic questioning Of the birth certificate issue has come from anywhere other than the mainstream media:
Jake Tapper: In an interview with The Daily Beast Friday, real estate mogul and Mitt Romney surrogate Donald Trump doubled-down on his fact-challenged claim that President Obama was not born in the U.S. — a claim that the Romney presidential campaign, currently raffling off a dinner with Trump and Romney to raise money for the campaign, made no effort to condemn.
Conservative Refocus Response: Indeed, we understand that YOU would expect Mitt to condemn the Trumpster; however, dear Jake, I suppose it would fall upon us to tepidly remind you dizzy denizens of the Media and the Left that Romney is running against Obama, not for him, as shocking as this may seem. It is our hope that Mr. Romney will continue to refuse to carry Obama's water, unlike you within the Axis Press, and even Sen. John McCain during his presidential run. You see, time after time, we observe you pinheads in the media repeatedly affirm, amongst yourselves, how ridiculous it all is regarding the premise of Obama's ineligibility, which, as I recall, was also the first response of the Right-Wing when the Nixon allegations on Watergate first came out....Uh-Huh, you following maybe just a little?
Now, we do understand how terribly difficult to imagine for you that it is, and for the Media as a whole, that someone can somehow actually refuse to worship at the alter of Obama. Believe me, I know how you must feel Jake, because in many ways, we of the Right can't believe how you of the Left can effectively manage not to somehow see through all of the mistruths and failures that is the nadir of Obama's Presidency. Yet here we both stand completely at odds, while one denies a preponderance of the evidence and another insists that we should not discount what's on the table.
And yet here, also, when it comes to YOUR MAN, rather than to actually initiate some meaningful journalistic digging around, where you would have to eventually admit that the smoke is seeping out from everywhere, you would rather condemn such talk and tell everyone, once again, how ridiculous it all is, despite the mountains of evidence going against the President at this point.
JT: “A book publisher came out three days ago and said that in his written synopsis of his book, he said he was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia. His mother never spent a day in the hospital,” Trump told The Daily Beast’s Lloyd Grove.
As Grove pointed out, that’s not even an accurate re-telling of the latest birther “evidence,” in which Obama’s literary agency two decades ago published a catalogue of clients that included the false information that he had been born in Kenya. A woman named Miriam Goderich has since come forward and said the error was hers.
Conservative Refocus Response: Oh, well then, there we are; we, thou sordid mass of pitchfork bundling Knaves that we remain! Who, we must now ask, died and made this woman, Miriam Goderich, the Queen of the literal truth, Jake?
In fact, it's amazing how you Obama disciples actually meander around the edges of the truth and then have the gall to call it professional journalism. You have now actually flaunted a woman around on the political stage, who is a verified contributor to Obama, as we can clearly see below, and insist that she is being credible, while failing to disclose that she is indeed an Obama supporter (not unlike yourself):
|9/3/2008||$1,000||Barack Obama [about]||IL Senate||Dystel, Jane||Employer listed but category unknown||Literary Agent / Dystel & Goderich Literary Manageme||NEW YORK||NY||10128|
|10/24/2008||$500||Barack Obama [about]||IL Senate||Dystel, Jane||Employer listed but category unknown||Dystel & Goderich Literary Manageme||New York||NY||10128|
|11/3/2008||$500||Barack Obama [about]||IL Senate||Dystel, Jane||Employer listed but category unknown||Dystel & Goderich Literary Manageme||New York||NY||10128|
So, despite the actual facts as displayed above, we should all still fall to our knees and grovel around at how simply pitiful we were to have heretically doubted the ignominious Messiah and the publishing- proof which he had signed off on twenty years ago, stating that he was from Kenya. Now, please don't make me explain what a publishing proof is Jake.
But you know, in another vein, the question which simply must be asked is: Why was it that Kenya, of all places, somehow managed to appear as the error in the brochure? Especially when we look back at all of the past allegations stating that Obama was born in Kenya. Our planet actually has about 200 countries in existence, 52 of which are in the massive continent of Africa. So, how is it that the very ridiculous error we have all been accused of making can now be found in a publishing brochure of over two decades ago? What are the freaking odds? 1 in 200 would be the approximate answer, and yet why not Somalia, Zimbabwe, or even Italy, for Heaven's sake? Why do these mistakes keep pointing to Kenya?
JT:It was an error. “That’s what he told the literary agent,” Trump told Grove. “That’s the way life works… He didn’t know he was running for president, so he told the truth. The literary agent wrote down what he said… He said he was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia… Now they’re saying it was a mistake. Just like his Kenyan grandmother said he was born in Kenya, and she pointed down the road to the hospital, and after people started screaming at her she said, ‘Oh, I mean Hawaii.’ Give me a break.”
One might think, given the ample evidence that the president was born in Hawaii — long-form birth certificate, contemporaneous newspaper accounts — and the ugly side of the zeitgeist that “birther” claims uncover, that the Romney campaign would be quick to distance the candidate from Mr. Trump – especially given how quickly the Romney campaign jumped on the remarks of Democratic activist Hilary Rosen when she seemed to belittle stay-at-home mothers.
Conservative Refocus Response: Indeed, is that all you've got Jake? A proven to be forged long-form birth certificate? One that, despite being a poorly contrived fake, proves Obama's father was not natural born, making the President ineligible? A newspaper account about a birth? That's evidence enough?
The ugly side of zeitgeist? Huh?
Well, now that's certainly proof! You have given two actual instances of "your Proof," both of which are tenuous at best, while we have numerous videos, numerous documents, Obama's own grandmother, some of these even displaying both the President and first lady stating that Obama was born in Kenya, and yet your two items are the be all end all, Jake? Give us a break.
And now, to bring up the Hilary Rosen incident, in which Rosen stated that Romney's wife "hadn't worked a day in her life" and you think Romney should have kept his mouth shut and let Mrs. Romney and millions of stay-at-home moms twist in the wind? Jake, what color is the sky in your world, and what true bearing does this have on the subject you are meekly preaching about, anyway?
Simply fascinating! Best describes your pathetic offense, at this point.
JT:One might think that given how much the Romney campaign was quick to demand that then-rival, Texas Governor Rick Perry, distance himself from a pastor who called Mormonism a “cult” – and the concerns of Romney campaign officials that Democrats will attempt to use bigotry against the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Saints against Romney — they would be sensitive to this issue.
But one would be wrong.
Conservative Refocus Response: And you, Sir Jake, are at this point floating in a sea of wrong. Quick question, however: What do the questions of Obama's ineligibility have to do with Romney's religion? Did you guys edit out something that we missed? Is there some sort of similarity here between birth certificates and religion that we don't know about? Or have you somehow misplaced your belief in Obama as a religion? Now that makes perfect sense, in the face of everything you have written up to this point. Word of advice: Stop kneeling at the altar of Obama; it's quite undignified and probably not very good for your career as an objective journalist.
I'm just sayin'....
JT: In addition to the dinner with Romney and Trump later in June, Romney will appear on Tuesday with Trump at his hotel in Las Vegas. And the campaign made no effort to distance itself from Trump when asked if the association wasn’t “embarrassing” for Romney by CNN’s Gloria Borger on Friday afternoon.
Senior Romney campaign adviser Eric Fehrnstrom said, “I can’t speak for Donald Trump, Gloria, but I can tell you that Mitt Romney accepts that President Obama was born in the United States. He doesn’t view the place of his birth as an issue in this campaign. We have many serious challenges facing this country dealing with jobs and the economy. That’s where we should center our- the discussion. And as I said, you know, Mitt Romney has made it clear that this is not an issue for him.
Conservative Refocus Response: Well, "duh," just as Obama lets you "journalists" do his dirty work in the media, Romney will allow bulldogs like Trump, and the unadulterated Conservative media, do his dirty work for him on the Right. It's not rocket science, it's simply hardcore opposition research and activism, and we believe that we have something here. You, within the opposition, do as well or you would have completely ignored this story altogether, so there we are.
JT: Fehrnstrom, asked about the campaign’s association with Trump, said, “Well, you know, not too long ago, Jay Carney, the spokesman for the White House made a statement which I think is correct, and that statement was that a candidate can’t be responsible for everything that their supporters say.”
That’s a reference to the “Hoffa Standard,” from Labor Day 2011, when White House press secretary Jay Carney refused to condemn incendiary remarks made by a labor leader attacking members of the Tea Party at an event where the president spoke.
“Donald Trump has become the birther-in-chief,” Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt said on MSNBC. “I could put the President’s birth certificate on my forehead and Mr. Trump wouldn’t accept that the President was born here in the United States. And it raises a question that’s come up before during this campaign as to whether Governor Romney will embrace the extreme voices in his party or stand up to them.”
Conservative Refocus Response: Interesting, it is, that the only folks who find these questions of Obama's eligibility "ridiculous" are largely the ones on the extreme Left and the Establishment class, such as you within the media, Jake. It reminds me of the Catholic Churches recent admission that the world is round. Like it or not, the doubts will persist until we see some actual evidence that disproves everything we have on file up to this point. And, by the way, it will take a lot more than a poorly forged birth certificate that was finally found after a difficult two year search.
Catch Recent Barry Secrest radio Interviews:
May 22nd, 2012
By Barry Secrest
You can feel it in the wind in America.
The Conservative Movement, against all odds, even now, is actually in the process of performing the Herculean task of bending logic and truth back into an ideological equation that had previously lacked any semblance of rational balance, nor few if any redeeming qualities. In a world that has increasingly gone "collectively mad," Liberty's light has at least, if not but only for a time, ceased fickering.
However, the reasoning for America's newly found wakefulness owes just as much to US economic reality as it does to an increasingly worried, if not irritated, civic sensitivity to failure. This failure can be found engrained within the artificially rendered platitudes and mistruths that Obama, the Socialist-Democrats, and even the moderate establishment types, have been preaching to America for over six long years, now.
These incessant mistruths are fed by the taproot of an agenda deeply grounded in ultimate failure for America, which is a failure that even many of America's slipshod politico's believe will magically turn of its own accord to this day. These lies which lay coiled around the largely ignored truth that is Obama's radical past, and even his aims, effectively conceal the facts to all but those who have been Constitutionally innoculated to an oft considered unnaturally odd influence, especially to those who are easily manipulated.
This shroud of animus, purposefully misdirected by the media for well over a decade, is now being painstakingly reconstructed by those in the Conservative media, but in light of Obama and his Czar's true agenda, rather than an historically entertaining timeline that has been artfully edited out by the Axis Press, which brings us to Part Two of an earlier article on Obama's roots.
In the preceding article, we delivered, in summary form, a telling look into the highlights of Obama's past and asked why a 2004 Associated Press article indicated that Obama was Kenyan born? We delved into the President's earlier Saul Alinsky organizing past and concluded with Obama's name change, progressing briefly into his days at Columbia University, along with an unanswered question concerning his Indonesian citizenship, which is where this article resumes.
Part Two: Techs, Lies and Video Tape.....
When Barack Obama decided to take a break from his work at the Gamaliel foundation in 1988 , an organization we reviewed at length previously, he traveled to Europe, and then decided to visit the area in Africa where, at the time, he often referred to as his home, being Kenya.
In this 1988 visit, Obama's first purported visit to Kenya, he would both meet and spend time with the family members of his Father, Barack Obama, Sr., who was born, raised, and lived in Kenya for most of his life; well, except for his time in Hawaii and a brief stint at Harvard before being ejected due to financial issues and for the act of polygamy, in being wed to both Obama's mother, Dunham, and a Kenyan wife, Kezia Obama. The President's father, Barack Senior, had, in fact, fathered a well-populated brood of half-siblings to the President, along with being simultaneously married to at least four different women over his lifetime. Obama, Jr. , after meaningfully communing with his extended family and friends in Kenya for five weeks, returned to the US and and initiated his path to a storied (literally) political career, which essentially began at Harvard Law School.
The Incredible "Skulk" - /skəlk/verb: to hide,keep out of sight,with sinister motive
However, it was also in the late 80's while working as a community organizer in Chicago, that Obama met and befriended Black Liberation Theologist Rev. Jeremiah Wright who pastored the controverisal Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago. The story between these two men, Wright and Obama, reads much like a novel dedicated to a potent Father/Son-Love/Hate relationship. A story recently highlighted by the author of the book, "The Amateur," by Ed Klein, revealed interviews of Rev. Wright, which can be seen and heard at Sean Hannity's website, telling the background story that few know concerning Obama and his radical leanings.
Obama and wife, Michelle, attendeded Wright's radical church for twenty years, at least and until the Conservative Media, primarily lead by Black Conservative Author and radio personality, Erik Rush, outed Obama's extraordinary membership in Wright's radical church with Marxist origins, to boot.
The Rev. Wright's interviews speak for themselves and are full of surprising points by Wright concerning Obama, but it's the belief system of Black Liberation Theology (BLT) itself, that would alarm all but the most diehard of Obama's faithful. You see, BLT is not some Methodist versus Baptist versus Presbyterian striation of the Christian church, but rather it is a religious mutation virtually dedicated to promoting class and racial warfare, while contrivially subverting the actual message found in Christianity. You see, BLT is predicated on queerly mixing Christianity with a Black Power Statement, which teaches social justice and redistribution, primarily for the African-American community, as a Jesus-inspired directive.
BLT"s teachings further wrongly establish that Christianity is a religion designed only for Whites and refers back to Black radical and BLT theologian James Cone, who somehow decided that the teachings of Jesus were primarily designed for Blacks. In fact, Cone states Jesus represented himself as Black for the express purpose of his primary emphasis, which was for Blacks to rise up and aggressively disrupt and dismantle White "oppression." A thing that fails the smell test after an entire nation actually votes a black man into office, however, that sort of fact actually ruins the entire victimology paradigm that defines the BLT religion.
But then again, yikes! So, according to Wright, now Jesus hates Whites, even after the Civil War? Indeed, it would appear that way, but only according to Obama's church, once again, where he sat and somehow never heard these fiery sermons for twenty some-odd years. But it gets even better when you root down to the core of the BLT belief system.
James Cone, who Wright frequently refers to (being the BLT anti-Yoda of this bowl-like movement) among others, is so militant within his manufactured belief system that he states, "if God is not just, if God does not desire justice, then God needs to be done away with." Yikes, again! So, if God does not believe in Cone, Wright's and Obama's radical thought process, then Cone believes that God should be done away with completely? Wonder how he might have reckoned to accomplish this particular task?
You see, according to Judeo-Christian teachings, mutiny against God has already been tried once, and the first try didn't exactly work out so well for the perps in that particular case. At any rate, for those of you who were unfamilar with Black Liberation Theology at its core, and how, in Heaven's name, a man who believed in such teachings actually became President, you might actually have heard it explained here, in summary, first. But there is one other thing that you should know about Black Liberation Theology that only a relative few know.
James Cone, in fact, didn't stop with his radical views on God, Jesus, and how they simply must identify with Blacks as victims of White oppression, "or else." He, and other formulaters of this new age belief system for Blacks, went all the way over to Karl Marx's ideology of Communist Marxism as a common school of thought in tandem with Black Liberation Theology and essentially adopted Marxist views as being in concert with Black Liberation's goals of forced redistribution and economic parity as facilitated by a central Statist government. In essence, Black Liberation Theology co-opts the Marxist "proletariat," those being Blacks, and the "Capitalist class," those being Whites, and predicates an entire system of belief modeled on the failed ideology of Marxism, with Jesus as its progenitor.
But it gets even worse. Some believe that the roots of the BLT movement, that being Liberation Theology, which is attributed to a South American political movement begun in the late sixties, was actually orginated in the old Communist think tanks of the Soviet Union. The Communists' thinking, at the time, was that Liberation Theology was a surefire way to create chaos within the Capitalist stronghold of the US and its allies. However, referencing this particular bit of information is difficult, at best, but if one who believes in these views were ever to reach the pinnacle of power, what then?
At any rate, "now you know the rest of the story," concerning Obama's early belief systems in addition to his Saul Alinksy organizing, which highlight a verifiable disdain for business and Capitalism as a whole, and also builds the background for Obama's ascension to the throne of American leadership and what he would eventually do, as President.
A Tree Grows in Chicago
At Harvard, Obama made his presence known by being the first Black president of the Harvard Law review, which garnered him precious national attention, while also initiating Obama's foray into writing by landing his first publishing contract in order to write a book about race relations. In 1990 Simon and Shuster issued a six figure check to Barack Obama in anticipation of publishing a book concerning race titled, "Journeys in Black and White." According to Robert Draper, a writer for GQ, our procrastinator in Chief, however, didn't begin work on the book right away.
After graduating Harvard in 1991, Obama went back to Chicago to begin working with a Chicago law firm. Here, once again, after his hiring at the firm of Davis, Miner, Barnhill & Galland, Obama requested an immediate sabatical, of sorts, so that he could perform some ACORN-stye Chicago voter registration work in anticipation of the 1992 elections. As a fastidious result, Obama spent the years 1991 and 1992 sitting at a donated desk in an office overlooking the University of Chicago Law School on yet another free lunch, so to speak, writing sparsely of his experiences in "Journeys into Black and White." The book had slowly morphed into an auto-biography about his favorite subject, that being himself, of course. However, Obama prophetically missed his deadline with Simon and Shuster in 1992, who unceremoniously terminated his book contract for failure to live up to the contract terms, leaving the future President owing a substantial amount to his ex-publisher.
In 1993, after taking yet another sabattical, this time from his new wife, Michelle, whom he had married in1992, Obama forcibly sequestered himself in a rental cottage located on a solitary beach in a more familiar locale, that being Indonesia. There, Obama hammered out a large portion of the book, which was retitled, "Dreams from My Father." The book was finally published, to a subdued audience at best, in 1995 by Time Books, and slowly became an overnight sensation 9 years later, in 2004, after Obama's preeminent keynote speech debut at the Democratic National Convention.
But how would politics come to the fore of Obama's life? At perhaps the behest of close friend, and now advisor, Valerie Jarret, way back in the early 1990's, Obama would finally decide to enter into politics after his initially ignominious book writing foray. In 1996, on word that a legislator was giving up her Chicago area district seat, Obama ran for and won a position in the Illinois state Senate, and would eventually be elected to the US Senate in 2004, which is where we began our story in the preceding article, and which is also where the questions truly begin concerning Obama's questionable origins.
Origins of the Species
18 years after Obama's initial foray into Africa of 1988, Obama would finally return to Kenya. Here, as a US Senator in 2006, he enigmatically referred to Kenya as his "home" and started the birther ball rolling. Obama, in a news video, can clearly be heard and seen to say the following, while on his Kenya Senatorial visit:
"I'm so proud to come back Home"
So, if Obama was indeed born in Hawaii, is this direct quote some sort of allusion to Obama's father's homeland, or is it his own particular birthplace? The operative point here would be that Obama appears to be referring to "home" in the same sense that a dictionary defines home, that being "a place of origin." At 48 seconds into the clip, Obama clearly delivers the quote in question.
So, once again, was Obama stating this simply for a clearly adulating crowd of Kenyans, or was the future President making an accurate reference to his place of birth and temporary upbringing? Point in fact being, most people would never refer to their father's birthplace as being their "home," while noting the media's frequent aspersions directed towards anyone who would ask these questions as being "patently ridiculous." So, perhaps someone from the Mainstream, or even some of our more prominent Conservative anti-birther skeptics, can explain Obama's own words in light of a growing American skepticism concerning this increasingly worrisome birth certificate drama?
However, if Obama's words on Kenya aren't clear enough, what other evidence might those nutty birthers have? Enter First Lady Michelle Obama, who at two minutes into this campaign clip, taken from late 2007, had this to say about Obama's birth origins.
Michelle Obama: "Someone like Barack Obama, a Kenyan"
Indeed, someone forgot to tell Michelle that a Kenyan cannot become President of the US. Little did we know that, somehow, it simply wouldn't matter. In fact she made the same error regarding her husband's birthplace in 2008, as well.
Michelle Obama: "When we took our trip to Africa and visited his home country of Kenya"
Granted, finally, someone mercifully got through to Michelle, at some point in 2008, concerning the fact that she had clearly been repeating an error concerning her husband's birthplace for the last twenty years or so; better late than never, one supposes, or perhaps the nutty Michelle Obama is also a birther. In fact, here, after the previous two clips, the First Lady can be heard on Oprah in 2011 both yelling and gesticulating furiously on her husband's NOW technically revised birthplace, a notable departure from her previous words:
Michelle Obama: "He Was Born Here!"
Indeed, one wonders if perhaps Oprah's show had been recorded in Kenya, since Michelle furiously insists "He Was Born Here" concerning the prior two clips, which were obviously recorded before the birth certificate issue was truly an issue. But then, there is also the following article in which we find that, not only did Obama, at one time, think he was Kenyan, or Michelle Obama, who also indicated Obama as being born in Kenya, but Obama's early publishing house had also indicated Obama to be of Kenyan birth in 1991.
In a publishing house booklet distributed by Obama's literary agent, Acton & Dystel, Obama was represented as being the US Senator "born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii." Perhaps these locales are listed in order? Now, one thing to remember as it regards publishing houses--before the publisher can print anything from an author, the author is given what is referrred to as a "proof" so that the author can sign off on and verify that the content meets his or her approval. You see, once a book is typeset and published, one cannot go back and change things very easily. So, we can safely assume that Obama signed off on these facts prior to their being printed.
The question then becomes, "Why?"
The Plot Thickens
However, not even here do the Kenyan ties end. Our preceding article dealt with the 2004 Associated Press article from the East African Standard in which a story touted the fact that Barack Obama had been the first man elevated to the US Senate born as a Kenyan. But, also in the time frame leading up to Obama's election was the fact that Alan Keyes, who was running against Obama for the same seat, criticized Obama as not being natural born; Obama's response, " So what, I am running for Illinois Senator, not the presidency."
In a story published in October of 2009 at the Post Email, writer John Charleton revisited the facts about Obama's questionable birthplace and fleshed out the details from an earlier article, posted in the Sentinel blog in October of 2009, which called into question Obama's actual birthplace among other facts.
Meanwhile, Back at the State Dept....
However, in the question of Obama's Kenyan quandary, one telling bit of missing information involves a data breach which occurred at the US State Department in connection with Obama's passport and personal documentation that was reported on March the 22nd of 2008, in the Washington Times.
In the breach, the passport records of 2008 Presidential contenders Hillary Clinton, John McCain and Barack Obama, Jr. were accessed in order to ostensibly muddy the tracks; however, only one file was tampered with, that being none other than Barack Obama's personal State Department files, which contain all manner of difficult to access personal documentation, including place and date of birth documentation, social security information, and related data.
However, tampering can take on a number of forms, so which type of tampering took place in this case, and more tellingly, who did it? In fact, this tampering was the type which data hacks refer to as cauterizing a file, which effectively seals the records, making access to the information virtually impossible. But it's the who, in this case, that delivers a smoking gun.
The security company cited for this breach is called the Analysis Corp; however, it's the CEO of the firm in question that raises eyebrows, that being none other than Obama's present day terrorism Czar and US Deputy National Security advisor, John O. Brennan, who, prior to Obama's being elected, was an "unpaid advisor" to the Obama campaign after serving as a top-rung, 25 year, CIA agent and GW Bush criticizer. Even more interesting, the Senate chairman and overseer of the US Foreign Service, who oversaw the investigation into the security breach, was none other than current Vice President, Joe Biden. Interesting that both of the men involved now gainfully reside at the highest positions in the Obama administration; you be the judge.
So, in answer to the question of "where does all of the Obama eligibility doubt in addition to this resurfacing Kenyan madness, as the media mostly refers to it, actually emanate from?" The answer, in fact, would have to be "from Barack and Michelle Obama, themselves," originally, as can clearly be seen on tape after tape and from numerous undoctered sources. However, the problems with Obama's origins neither begin nor end even here.
First of all, it is a well known fact that Obama's father is not a US citizen, as indicated by the overwhelming evidence of his birthplace being Kenya. No one, in fact, can counter this argument. The problem lies within several areas, speaking to the exact definition of what "natural born" actually means in the US Constitution as it applies to the Presidency. The fact that the numerous challenges continually brought forth in Federal Courts, which seek to strictly define Obama's ineligibility, having been repeatedly quashed in the US court systems, would seem to bear out an almost conspiratorial aspect to the question.
Many media professionals even make the beyond-ridiculous error in referring to 8 US code section 1401 in verifying Obama's eligibility as a citizen. Unfortunately, that particular section of the code has little or nothing to do with ascertaining Obama's eligibility as it regards a President. You see, even if the birth certificate were proven valid beyond the shadow of a doubt, Obama would still have one major problem remaining, and that problem is the fact that both of his parents are not natural born, only one was, in fact. The US Constitution stipulates that a President must be natural born, meaning two parents who were born as US citizens.
Now, this particular fact speaks to the cultural confusion that we American's increasingly see all around us, as well as to the enduring wisdom of the Founders, as it regards being natural born. In fact, US Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas jokingly addressed this issue while appearing before a congressional hearing in 2010:
Justice Thomas on Obama's eligibility: "We're evading that one"
In one of his answers, indicated within a C-span YouTube clip, Justice Thomas jokingly stated, "we're evading that one," when it comes to the Presidential question of birthplace and the meaning of natural born. So, what does all of this mean? Again, you be the judge.
But the recent investigations conducted by Sheriff Joe Arpaio, coupled with numerous past doubts and then blown back out into the media again with the New Jersey Presidential ballot hearings, which challenge the validity of Obama in both New Jersey and now even Arizona, have renewed interest in this story. These questions of birthplace, natural born eligibility, and birth certificate inauthenticity have brought out a resurgence to growing assertions of Obama ineligibility, despite a concerted attempt by the Mainstream to both avoid the story and even castigate others for bringing the issue up.
But then, despite this desert-like dearth of stories in the traditional media addressing the issue of presidential eligibility, we have also seen well over a third of all US states, 21 at this writing, either attempt to adopt, or actually adopt, more stringent requirements for Presidential aspirants to be accepted onto state ballots. And yet, the question of eligibility is still considered as beyond ridiculous by those who seemingly fear the net outcome the most, that being the Mainstream Media, which completely failed in truthfully reporting these facts to a now completely confounded America.
The interesting thing in all of this? Each of these State Legislature efforts at significantly defining Presidential ballot access have occurred only since 2008. So, are these states aware of some fact that the US civil society and the Media are not telling us?
Finally, despite all of the evidence concerning the questions of Obama's past, even those instances where Obama's foreign origins have been clearly enunciated by the President and the First Lady before their ascension on video and in writing, numerous and yet utterly convincing historical artifacts even beyond those presented here. We will further hear leading Conservative's, columnists, radio personalities and, of course, the Mainstream Media and the entire Left-Wing, offer up apology after apology in abeyance to the actual facts in existence. We have even heard numerous attempts at explanations of why Obama would have earler lied about being born in Kenya, for Heaven's sake.
But consider, just for a moment, the possibility that Obama was not, in fact, lying, at the time, for whatever reason. Once you have imagined that far-fetched possibility, now mix in the one ingredient that we purposefully left out, that being the extraordinary uproar over Obama's birth certificate, and remember this famous quote: "When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth."

You simply have to love Breitbart and their almost apologetic disclaimer, below, in conjunction with their uncovering of yet another piece of evidence oddly indicating that Obama was born in Kenya. It was a promotional booklet from a publishing house, as seen in the above photo, which was distributed to industry professionals only. In the booklet, and as you can see from the photo, Obama is touted as being Kenyan born.
I am certain each of you are surprised at my own personal conveyance of both shock and extreme dismay at this most disturbing of news. Joe Arpaio is also most likely sobbing in pernicious disbelief at this point.
However, I must be the first to admit that I, too, have been mistaken as having been born in the African nation of Somalia. It is an unfortunate misconception, perhaps, owing to my slightly olive complexion and pirate-like bearing, not to mention that sliver of Cherokee making itself known. In fact, there are many red, white and blue Americans who are repeatedly construed as being born in the foreign locale of Africa, for reasons as yet unknown. Obviously, Obama would be the poster child for this oddity. Perhaps someone could get to the bottom of this, a most consternating of issues, before it spins completely out of control.
Secrest's Secret?: Suspected Somalian
Now, in all seriousness, we have been writing furiously about an Associated Press article written in 2004, as seen below,
which was printed in the East African Standard, that Breitbart must have somehow missed. But that fact, coupled with our complete treatise on Obama's past in that same article (click on the picture to read it), which has also caught fire of late, made us decide to leave the story up in the main section of this website for an extended time. This, in order to make sure that A) Everyone that visits reads the article and, B) Giving us time to do complete justice to the second part of the article coming up in the next several days, speaking to the reasons for this Kenyan quandary and our increasingly un-American President.
But as we gather the building evidence, coupled with Sheriff Joe Arpaio's investigation, and then deftly connect it with the many problems associated with Obama's birth certificate issues, you can begin to sense the smoke billowing out all around, which would, perhaps, indicate a fire of some particular nature in this "off limits" area. In fact, we do not share Breitbart's skepticism of what they, themselves, have actually found, and yet seem to deny. But we all know why, now, don't we?
Please read on, the article in part from Breitbart below, and standby for our second part coming up this weekend.
You won't be disappointed, and we never apologize, it should be noted, for what we find:
Note from Senior Management:
Andrew Breitbart was never a "Birther," and Breitbart News is a site that has never advocated the narrative of "Birtherism." In fact, Andrew believed, as we do, that President Barack Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, on August 4, 1961.
Yet Andrew also believed that the complicit mainstream media had refused to examine President Obama's ideological past, or the carefully crafted persona he and his advisers had constructed for him.
It is for that reason that we launched "The Vetting," an ongoing series in which we explore the ideological background of President Obama (and other presidential candidates)--not to re-litigate 2008, but because ideas and actions have consequences.
It is also in that spirit that we discovered, and now present, the booklet described below--one that includes a marketing pitch for a forthcoming book by a then-young, otherwise unknown former president of the Harvard Law Review.
It is evidence--not of the President's foreign origin, but that Barack Obama's public persona has perhaps been presented differently at different times.
Breitbart News has obtained a promotional booklet produced in 1991 by Barack Obama's then-literary agency, Acton & Dystel, which touts Obama as "born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii."
The booklet, which was distributed to "business colleagues" in the publishing industry, includes a brief biography of Obama among the biographies of eighty-nine other authors represented by Acton & Dystel.
It also promotes Obama's anticipated first book, Journeys in Black and White--which Obama abandoned, later publishing Dreams from My Father instead.
Obama’s biography in the booklet is as follows (image and text below):
Barack Obama, the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review, was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii. The son of an American anthropologist and a Kenyan finance minister, he attended Columbia University and worked as a financial journalist and editor for Business International Corporation. He served as project coordinator in Harlem for the New York Public Interest Research Group, and was Executive Director of the Developing Communities Project in Chicago’s South Side. His commitment to social and racial issues will be evident in his first book, Journeys in Black and White.
The booklet, which is thirty-six pages long, is printed in blue ink (and, on the cover, silver/grey ink), using offset lithography. It purports to celebrate the fifteenth anniversary of Acton & Dystel, which was founded in 1976.

Jay Acton no longer represents Obama. However, Jane Dystel still lists Obama as a client on her agency's website.
According to the booklet itself, the text was edited by Miriam Goderich, who has since become Dystel's partner at Dystel & Goderich, an agency founded in 1994. Breitbart News attempted to reach Goderich by telephone several times over several days. Her calls are screened by an automated service that requires callers to state their name and company, which we did. She never answered.
The design of the booklet was undertaken by Richard Bellsey, who has since closed his business. Bellsey, reached by telephone, could not recall the exact details of the booklet, but told Breitbart News that it "sounds like one of our jobs, like I did for [Acton & Dystel] twenty years ago or more."

So, why did the Associated Press, back on June 27th, 2004, trumpet the fact that a Kenyan-born American named Barack Obama was now being elevated as a US Senator in the East African Sunday Standard newspaper, and is this article actually legitimate?
Indeed, it is, as a matter of fact. When this story was first discovered some time ago, we actually visited the East-African Standard website, clicked on the associated link in the EAS Standard's archived wayback machine, and there both the article and picture magically appeared. Unfortunately, the link has since been taken down , due to unmentionably odd reasons, we might add. But why did this story appear and, once again, is it real? The answer to this question demands a journey all the way back to Obama's origins in order to understand both the man and his often stealthily applied radical ideology, and it can only be accomplished here in two parts.
Part One: Obama's Radical Ideology
It was mid-1988 when Barack Obama visited Kenya for the first time, "according to public records."
At the age of 28, Obama had been on an extended vacation in Europe from his job as a Community organizer for the Gamaliel Foundation of Chicago.
The Gamaliel Foundation was an ACORN-type community organizing group,transformed from originally helping African American families purchase homes on Chicago's west side to recruiting and training community leaders within the inner-city centers. Interestingly, this transformation took place largely as a result of Obama's tenure there, from 1985 to 1988.
These specifically-trained community leaders would then organize followers to publicly agitate for both social justice and Affirmative Action aims within many center-city black communities. Obama's goals as a Gamaliel Leader were not necessarily to "get inner city occupants into meaningful jobs or homes," but rather, the future Leader of the Free World was, in effect, creating frustrated outcries for increased social justice and welfare support from both local and Federal governments, while organizing and registering these same inner-city dwellers, both dead and alive as the case may be, to vote.
This newly remolded Foundation had, in fact, been reinstituted after the Leftist/neo-Marxist/ Saul Alinksy mold, which utilized Collectivist ideals to achieve both civic instability and transformative change, and with the direct help of Obama, in this case. These same ideals would later serve to reorder and transform inner-city communities into intensified hotbeds of government-supported, single-adult families and redistributional justice centers, even as poverty sequentially worsens. The modern-day equivalent to these organizations are even now being set up in city after major city and some have even parlayed a meaningful role in taking part in the often violent OWS protests.
However, whle many will frequently hear the name of Alinksy and his community organizing efforts brought up when referencing Obama's past, both the Left and the media have stealthily managed to largely reinvent Alinksy as a simple activist for the poor. In fact, nothing could be further from the truth. You see, Alinsky's model for transforming a community is based upon a simple yet effective Marxist strategy of fomenting class warfare on a societal basis, in essence, pitting the proletariat (Employees) against the Capitalist class (Businessowners) to create wide swaths of civic instability, which then provides fertile ground for transformative societal change to take place. In this particular vein, no one can forget one of Obama's chief campaign promises:
But for those who still wonder at the aims of Radical Saul Alinksy, who is the Father of modern community organizing and "the man who inspired Obama," you need only read a few Vintage Books reviews of Alinksy's book, "Rules for Radicals":
“Alinsky's techniques and teachings influenced generations of community and labor organizers, including the church-based group hiring a young [Barack] Obama to work on Chicago's South Side in the 1980s.... Alinsky impressed a young [Hillary] Clinton, who was growing up in Park Ridge at the time Alinsky was the director of the Industrial Areas Foundation in Chicago.” —Chicago Sun-Times
"Rules for Radicals" is essentially a guidebook that encourages individuals to gather, organize and develop a battle-plan to spread a socialist agenda; there is even a list of tactics to be used. Alinsky has conveniently simplified the complex socio-economic landscape of the United States into three groups: The Haves (upper-class), The Have Some, Want More (middle-class) and Have-nots (poor).~Vine Voice
In essence, Obama's Alinsky manual teaches its students Collectivist goals from a class warfare perspective, which has quickly become a stealthily supplanted cornerstone of the Obama 2012 election campaign. But Obama's ties to the extremist Left neither begin nor end here; in fact, Obama's failed ideology casts a wide net into the world of the Communists ideologues, which would leave most of our Founding Fathers furiously rotating in their graves.
You see, the problems with Alinksy's book only begin with its instructively destructive side. We also have Alinsky's homage to Satan himself, where he acknowledges Lucifer as being the first radical known to man, receiving a kingdom all his own, while also noting that the Progressive spin-meisters at Media Matters, a brazen Obama apologist organization sponsored by George Soros, complain that this is not a dedication, but rather something else altogether, ergo an acknowledgement, which is a mere parsing of terms, in our book, but also comically illustrating Media Matters' need to defend the book, itself, rather tellingly.
But despite the Alinsky ties, the President's early years were spent under the influence of men such as Frank Marshall Davis, a Communist-journalist and good friend of Obama's grandfather in Hawaii, who was implicated in an FBI counter-communist investigation. Davis was outed as a Communist member by an informer who used Davis regularly in passing information to various Hawaiian Communist cells. Obama even repeatedly mentions Davis in his book, "Dreams From My Father," as Frank, with fond thoughts on the old Communist peppered liberally throughout the book, in at least twelve sections.
But what do all of these early left-wing extremist ties, formerly established by a sitting US president, mean to America, now, in Obama's increasingly depraved post-American world? Indeed, we need look no further than Obama's private words to Authoritarian Russian leader, Medvedev, while at a Seoul conference. At the meeting, Obama stated this to his Totalitarian counterpart, unbeknowst that it was both photographed and recorded:
President Obama: On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved but it’s important for him to give me space.
Medvedev: Yeah, I understand. I understand your message about space. Space for you…
President Obama: This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.
Medvedev: I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir.
You see , if Obama were not in the maddening habit of continually governing against the will of the people who elected him, it would not be necessary for him to wait until after his presumed re-election. But where else can Obama's Marxist strategies be found, temporarily thrusting aside his totalitarian complicity?
Enter the Center for Community Change, or CCC, which is a direct off-shoot of these extremely Leftist ACORN-like organizations, which Obama was instrumental in building and funding, while even recently establishing beachheads in many larger cities. Touting the Leftist/Obama mantra of resisting the power of "banks putting profit over people" and Social justice, which is another veiled word for Communist redistribution schemes, while completely ignoring the US government's Leftist mandated Community (Organizing) Reinvestment Act, which brought the US economy to its knees. The CCC, in fact, actively seeks to leverage over-burdensome regulations against the very businesses that are the true lifeblood to any community, while railing against the standing government as being ineffective and corrupt, which is but another reference Obama frequently made while campaigning in 2008.
However, these acts of anti-government and anti-corporate activism are an essential component of Obama's Alinksy teachings, which speak to an extreme willingness to take down the present system by way of change we can believe in .
So, what does all of this actually mean in the larger picture?
In essence, it means that Saul Alinksy certainly, and therefore Obama ostensibly, despise America's free market capitalist system, harbor every aim at bringing the Capitalist system down while simultaneously transforming it into a system which simply cannot exist, that being a Collectivists' Mecca. Granted, you will never hear Obama actually state this, due to the simple truth that it would effectively end his political career.
The fact that Obama has effectively impaired US financials by losing America's AAA bond rating status for the first time in US history, while ringing up an enormous debt of nearly $ 16 Trillion dollars, speaks to a strategy taken from the playbook of yet another devious Alinsky scheme that few actually understand. Billed as the Cloward-Piven strategy, this Alinsky inspired theme seeks to overwhelm the system using welfare benefits as the fulcrum to destabilize America's current capitalist system and re-erect a system that would quickly erode America's power and standing by rotting away the remaining wealth and showering it on the disadvantaged until nothing, in essence, remains.
The mere fact that Obama, while promising to cut US debt in half in 2009, has actually increased it by a figure now approaching $ 6 trillion dollars, speaks to the President's stunningly obvious Cloward-Piven agenda. As the naysayers scoff, and the media turns an ever-blind eye, we note the fact that Obama and the Democrats have failed to pass an actual budget in nearly three years now, as the spending continues to threaten US economic security and stability. The President's response has been to attack the GOP and Conservatives, despite our insistence that America now tow the line of decreasing Her out of control spending. Obama, meanwhile, will inerringly fall back on his class warfare rhetoric to dispel his efforts at transforming America and Her financial system.
But where else, exactly, does Obama fit into all of this, aside from being a heavily trained Community organizer? Indeed, none other than the Left's darling, National Public Radio, who kindly answers this particular question for us, when we learn in an NPR interview, that Obama pointedly used Alinksy's radical rules in order to leverage hundreds of community organizing units into an army of electors in the 2008 Democratic Primary Caucuses. The interview further identifies the fact that Saul Alinksy was "the man who inspired Obama," by the way.
These extremist, Leftist, community organizing groups, therefore, dovetail flawlessly into Obama's early role in politics, which actually points to a radical Leftist ideologue who practiced the spread of neo-Marxism in inner-city communities. This is where, in part, the "Obama is a Marxist" mantra, which many on the Conservative Right keep repeating, hails from. Indeed, it's not some fanciful contrivance engineered to belittle the President, but rather it is a researched fact that the Mainstream Media has continually chosen to ignore. Meanwhile, Obama largely refuses to discuss his Leftist past to any real degree, while most of the American people have no idea of America's growing culture of counter-Capitalism that the President, in earnest, has promoted throughout his entire political career.
But the Obama as neo-Marxist organizer neither begins nor ends at the origins of his political career. In truth, outside of Obama's modern-day words, which continually deprecate business, the wealthy, and the American Capitalist system, the President also insistently reminds us that the "US Free Market does not work and never has worked." We also have his quotes on Capitalism, which tell us that our 200 year lifestyle as, the wealthiest and most powerful nation on the planet, has been but a practice of blind faith, and that it, too, has failed. Indeed, these two facts coupled with his fundamental foundation as a Saul Alinsky-style community organizer espousing Marxist ideals, begins to tell the story that many refuse to utter and most actually deny.
Obama began his radical liberal journey after migrating from Hawaii to Los Angeles in 1979 at the age of 18. There he enrolled in what many consider to be one of the most Liberal colleges in the US, Occidental College. Occidental is a Liberal Arts hotbed that prides itself on community engagement, which is another, more fanciful way of describing community organizing. In fact, many refer to the college as "Little Moscow," both in and around the LA area, due to its extremist left views. Thus, the origins of Obama's formalized radical journey could be said to begin at the Leftist indoctrination factory of Occidental, at least in part. In 1981, in an extended break from life at Occidental, Obama left the country in order to visit family in the Islamist hotbeds of Pakistan and Indonesia,where he had spent his early years from age six until 10 years of age.
There, Obama met and traveled with two men for three weeks named Wahid Hamid and Mohammed Hasad Chand00, which is an event verified by Obama's campaign spokesman. The problem? Chandoo is a radical Isamist who operates a website dedicated to anti-Semitic and anti-American propaganda. The site is currently listed, by the way, as having been temporarily taken down; no surprise there. Upon Obama's return to the US from the Middle East visit, he then transferred his enrollment from Occidental to an even more liberal power-school, Columbia University of New York.
At Columbia, Obama studied Political Science with a specialty in International Relations and graduated in 1983. No known records exist for Obama's time at Columbia University; however, there is a student ID card copy circulating the web that appears to indicate that Obama was, at the time, registered as a foreign student.
However, to make things just a bit more complicated, the name on the ID card indicates Barry Soetoro, and the President was born as Barack Obama, according to his Hawaiian long-form birth certificate. So why did Obama change his name to Barry Soetoro and then change it back again to Barack Obama? According to available records, around 1980 or 1981 Obama grew disfond of the name Barry (ahem) and decided to go back to his native name of Barack Obama. This name change, for a future President, had only happened twice previously in two centuries of US history.
But to explain this quandary further, when Obama's mother and biological father were divorced, Ann Dunham later met and wed a native Indonesian, of Javanese-Muslim ethnicity, who was a visiting foreign student in Hawaii named Lolo Soetoro. In that same time period, the nation of Indonesia underwent an attempted coup by radical Communists known as the 30 September Movement. As a result, the nation recalled all of its students, forcing Soetoro to return to his native country and move Obama's family to Indonesia.
It was also here that Obama took on Indonesian citizenship, was adopted by his Muslim stepfather, and was also forced to renounce his American citizenship due to the fact that Indonesia did not allow for dual citizenship. Thus the name change to Barry Soetoro and also the assumed need for a foreign student ID card at Columbia. But this then begs a new question, being, when did Obama become a US citizen again, after initially changing his citizenship to Indonesia, as a child? The anwer to that particular question drives discussion elements of increasingly inquiring minds, all across the media.
Conventional thought might be, "Once a US citizen, always a US citizen," which would mean that the US would supposedly recognize Obama's citizenship, despite his earlier renouncement in order to become an Indonesian citizen. But then the quesion becomes, did Obama gain the presidency as a dual citizen of Indonesia?
A growing number of Americans, who are just now learning these facts, are in effect shocked to finally realize that a sitting US President, has upon display at the White House website a birth certificate, which we are not allowed to speak of, but has been proven to be fraudulent by numerous experts. Further, nevermind the selective service draft card which fails the test as a legitimate historical artifact, along with a highly questionable social security number.
We now also have the question of whether or not Obama failed to re-naturalize his citizenship after becoming a citizen of Indonesia as a child. These facts, coupled with the consitutional question of whether or not Obama was natural-born and is eligible for the Presidency, continues to cast doubt on the most radical presidency ever to gain power in the US.
Next week, we'll dig into the Obama past even more intently and focus on the numerous questionable ties, his failed birth certificate, and also take a look at his US comings and goings with an even greater critical eye on discovering who the man is and what his political leanings might seek to ultimately achieve.
Recently from Conservative Refocus:
