Skip to comments.Article in Nairobi Paper June 2004 - Barack born in Africa

An ongoing poll by AOL News currently shows that 58% of Americans have doubts about Obama’s citizenship. The poll was started on July 28 and continues — you can go here to vote. And lest you think that this survey is being conducted in a very anti-Obama venue, the title of the article is Birthers, Beer and Stuck on ‘Stupidly’ — it is an environment contemptuous of skeptics. So we can conclude that the results of their poll are not what they were hoping for.
A scant five years ago, Barack Obama was a little known Illinois state politician, aspiring to move up to the United States Senate. Undoubtedly, the Marxist handlers behind this Manchurian candidate had long range plans to capture the US presidency since he was groomed as a youth by Frank Marshall Davis. But the general public and the press were not privy to this information.
At that time, there would have been no reason to fabricate a story about Obama’s birth that would disqualify him for the highest US office. This would be especially true for an African paper that was simply proud of their native son. So it is reasonable to take the press clippings of the day at face value. The following item has been on the web all along, but apparently did not get much attention. It is a June 2004 article from the online version of the East African Standard, an English-language paper published in Nairobi, Kenya, titled Kenyan-born Obama all set for US Senate.

Another African paper, Modern Ghana, published an article this past July on the occasion of Obama’s trip to Africa — History Beckons - As Prez Obama Arrives Tomorrow. Originally, the article contained the following sentence:
For Ghana, Obama’s visit will be a celebration of another milestone in African history as it hosts the first-ever African-American President on this presidential visit to the continent of his birth.
Responding to external pressure, the paper eventually inserted the possessive “father’s” into the sentence, so that it now reads:
For Ghana, Obama’s visit will be a celebration of another milestone in African history as it hosts the first-ever African-American President on this presidential visit to the continent of his father’s birth.
There are numerous assertions that Barack Obama was born on August 4, 1961 at the Coast General Hospital in Mombasa. The situation was not helped by an interview after the election last November with Kenyan Ambassador to the United States, Peter Ogego, conducted by the hosts of the Mike In The Morning talk radio show on WRIF in Detroit, Michigan.
Host: One more quick question — President-elect Obama’s birthplace over in Kenya — is that going to be a national spot to go visit where he was born?
Ambassador:It’s already an assumption. His paternal grandmother is still alive.
Host: But his birthplace, they’ll put up a marker there?
Ambassador: It’s already well-known…

The socialistic Democrats presently controlling the US government and the liberal mainstream media dismiss those who question Obama’s citizenship as irrational “birthers,” “conspiracy theorists,” and “stuck on stupid.” But given the numerous indicators extant, it is a perfectly legitimate question to ask.
During last year’s presidential campaign, the issue of eligibility arose regarding both candidates. John McCain immediately made his original birth certificate available. Barack Obama only made public a state certificate that affirmed his birth was registered in Hawaii, which could have been the result of a foreign birth. He has never shown the original, or “vault copy,” of his birth record.
Not only that, he has spent big bucks on lawyers to prevent anyone from seeing the vault copy of his birth record by having his records sealed. That makes no sense at all, unless he has something to hide. Given the large numbers of constituents who are concerned, any responsible public servant would make the original records available to dispel their worries. (It is an easy thing to do — for heaven’s sake, I just did it myself to renew my Virginia driver’s license.)
So, whatever the truth may be about the status of Obama’s citizenship, there are some facts that are certain based on behavior that is public. Barack Obama is concealing some piece of information, and Barack Obama does not care about the concerns of a large number of Americans.

Common sense has told us from the start that he’s hiding something. If he’s upright why can’t he just bring out his bc, college records and passportand show the world?
WTF? If that Standard article is authentic, why didn’t anyone [not even the Hildebeest] use it BEFORE the freaking 2008 election?
so far... we have:
1. 0bama’s paternal grandmother stating she was at his birth in kenya
2. a phony jpg posted to a website by an unknown person
3. an AP article from 2004 stating he is kenyan born
4. 0bama himself having spent $1m to keep anyone from obtaining his long form birth certificate
the above is ALL we have to date. without further proof, you are left to draw the conclusion that 0bama was not born in the US
If he has to seal his records then he should not be president....
Donchya get paid to work after 5 pm? LOL!
Hi Ho, Hi Ho! A trollin' we will go!
... and before long some wacko judge will say we don’t have standing to even ask the question.
Here we go again! Busy day for the obama internet scrubbing team.
Mooted and muted. ;-O)
You know, that right! It's the old what's right is right and what's wrong is wrong. It's not rocket science. It's just plain wrong that our President has to seal his records and be so secretive about his past. If he has to hide things, then there's something to hide. Since he's our CIC, I think he owes it to the American people to "show us all" or resign. Otherwise he's a national security risk. Simple as that. . .
OK, I'll bite. This very same esteemed newspaper also claims he was born in Hawaii.
One of the two reporters got their facts wrong.
well well well another one...
America should be aghast that all were asleep at the wheel when this man with the enigmatic past came sailing towards the White House.
To be fair, nobody anticipated an Obama-type problem. All candidates to date have been safely of the kind that we would expect to be born in the USA. There is one other obscure president (Van Buren IIRC) who was so born, but who was also born a British subject, and so did not qualify under rules observed at the time as natural born. He squeaked in and out before anyone knew.
Anyhow fool us once shame on you, fool us twice shame on us! It should be required that before Obama even goes back on the ballot that he show his bona fides. And same for all other presidential candidates.
I bet that Mombassa BC is the real deal.
Why not let Barry O. take the hits for your policy and reward him with millions?
End of freaking story.

Except by this time, the cover story was Obama was born in Hawaii. Obama was having White House thoughts dancing in his brain.
