Here’s a FR thread of it:
Also American Thinker:
... The ship spent 4 days in Mombassa, but due to some Marines stealing a radio, I was a brig guard for the month and only had 2 days ashore. I made time to go on a short safari in the Tsavo East National park, seeing elephants and hippos in the wild, some gazelles, water buffalo, some large birds and one particular lizard the size of a German Shepard that I held up for everyone to take pictures of while it lazed about in the daytime sun. Why it didnt bite me, I can only thank God.
While back in Hawaii by late June of 1980, we went back to Honolulu for liberty. I dont remember the exact address, or the exact business, but one August night, early August 1980, I stopped at a small shop that was either on Kalakaua Blvd or the street just north of it, one block north. I struck up a conversation with a young man, Mulatto, about 18, all teeth, smiling, skinny, short hair that I remember, at least short for the year we lived in.
He told me he lived in Hawaii. Not too many black Americans lived in Hawaii at all, now or then, so he being there was an oddity. I asked if he was in the service and he said no. I told him that I was a Marine and had recently gotten back from float. We spoke of world travel at this time and I told him the places we went to.
What strikes me most is what he said as to where he grew up: Indonesia. He told me he wanted to be President of the US someday. I remember lightly smiling and commenting that maybe by the time he gets to be 40 or so, America will be ready for a Black man to be President and I wished him luck. We spoke of the racial tensions I saw at home while growing up and I asked him if he ever saw that overseas or since he returned back to Hawaii. I dont remember his answer, but we spoke more of his time overseas and his thoughts on life and philosophy of government. He made some strange comments to me, it was obvious he never set foot for any time in the continental United States and I told him he better realize that he is making judgments about the United States when he himself never actually lived there. I told him, Hawaii aint the United States!
He also told me something that I never forgot, for it caused me to do some other things in an effort to be nice to him and possibly a favor. We spoke of where I had been and the world as I saw it. I told him I had been to Africa , Mombassa specifically, and he said to me abruptly, I was born there. I told him he is not eligible to be president if that was true, but I remembered he said his mom was an American, so, maybe it was okay. But it was what I did after that makes this a true memory: I went back to the barracks and told others of this guy and suggested we all grab our photo albums and visit him again and show him pictures of Mombassa so he could see where he was from.
No one wanted to go, and at that time, my camera had failed me weeks before we hit Mombassa and it was late August or early September until I had borrowed someone elses pictures to develop myself so I had copies of where I was. But I never forgot meeting that man for those reasons. I was going to do him a favor and show him his home country of birth. And I never went back for some reason, most likely I forgot to or just felt that a one time chance encounter would be meaningless to both of us and didnt mean we were friends.
In the light of what is called The Birther movement, these memories are still foremost in my mind concerning this. While I cannot swear it was Barak Obama, all the details I do remember of that chance encounter fit the profile of the man who some people claim is born in Kenya and others claim he was born in Hawaii . The man I met was about 18, thin, Mulatto, told me he was born in Mombassa, raised overseas, was living in Hawaii and hadnt yet been to many places in the world outside of those places, mostly, hadnt been to the mainland of America for any long time period if at all. And he openly told me he wanted to be President.
And I remember that face, the face of a young man who sat on a table to my right front, his hands resting on the edge of the table, him leaning forward, his smile, all teeth. It was Barak Obama. I dont know if Id bet my life on it, but I am willing to tell people openly at the risk of my ridicule. I was there, and saw him, spoke to him, and he openly told me he was born in Mombassa, Kenya, not Hawaii. ...
Born in Kenya references:
Re: “Sorry, but I doubt this.”
PLS, which blog?
No, it was not on a corner, and it was not a brand name store, that I remember anyways
It was more of a hamburge stand that sold ice cream cones, too
It was a little hole in the wall place
So, I believe it woulod have been Kona, Kapiolani or Makaloa or Kanaunu
>>...So, I believe it would have been Kona, Kapiolani or Makaloa or Kanaunu
Those streets look like an even MORE likely area where a college kid would have a summer job selling “island trinkets in a gift shop”.
Still only 6 blocks or so from the Baskins, and easily walking distance for O.
For all his faults, Michael Savage does not tip toe around this topic.
I am disappiointed that Sean Hannity and Mark Levin appear to want to avoid discussing it.
Nobama obviously found some ways to obscure his past on his own, then when hooking up with soros or klintoons they made concerted efforts to hide his background, seeing a perfect avenue to slip nobama into POTUS before anyone could get the goods on him.
Now that he has also had the power of the office it would surely seem the tracks will have been covered to never now know the facts.
Regardless of his eligibility, he has proved to be our least ever qualified and most subversive president. As the old says goes, you can not make a silk purse from a sow’s ear.
I find it next to impossible to believe he was born in Kenya because Obama Sr and Anne were not really seeing each other. She moved to Washington State right after Obama was born.
Exactly. The birth certificate issue is a dead end and wastes precious time.
We’re better focusing on electing our candidates and controlling legislation.
SAD may have moved to Washington State before Obama was born. Nobody really knows for sure where she was before or when the baby was born.
Hawaii seems to be the obvious answer. I have always wondered if she married Sr so that little Barry would have a “father” and so Sr could live in the US. Frank Marshall Davis was already married at the time I think.
He assumed (like you?) that her speaking at GOProud would be detrimental to conservatism when in fact it was just the opposite.
He got a lot of attention from attacking Coulter which is why she described him as a publicity whore.
Then he snuggled up to the homos and invited them to speak at his event!
So I guess that would mean that Farahs action "was unprofessional, to say the least, and harmful to the unity of those who want to return America to where it should be, according to the Constitution."
(Your statement fits Farah rather than Coulter.)
Hypocritical to say the least.
Coulter is a fantastic writer, but some people just don't get her so must criticize from that view point. No problem but I will respond when one of my "nerves" gets hit with unsubstantiated slams against Coulter.
Posting little digs at Coulter isn't going to help get our "country back to where the Founders and the Constitution says it should be."
She is right on track with that so it seems the three of us have something in common.
“Posting little digs at Coulter isn’t going to help get our “country back to where the Founders and the Constitution says it should be.””
You’re right. We are all on the same team, after all.
Constitutional Republic, NOT a democracy has to be emphasized more and more at this time.
