 Abstract (Document Summary)
His own upbringing is a blending of diverse cultures. Born in Hawaii, where his parents met in college, [Barack Obama] was named Barack (blessed in Arabic) after his father. The elder Obama was among a generation of young Africans who came to the United States to study engineering, finance and medicine, skills that could be taken back home to build a new, strong Africa. In Hawaii, he married Obama's mother, a white American from Wichita, Kan.
Shortly after the elections, a package turned up at the law review office with no return address. Obama said he hesitated to open it because of the spree of recent mail bombings targeted at civil rights activists nationwide. When the package was finally opened, inside were two packages of dim sum, with no explanation. Some students made light of the media invasion, posting a memo titled "The Barack Obama Story, a Made for TV Movie, Starring Blair Underwood as Barack Obama."
What truly distinguishes Obama from other bright students at Harvard Law, [Laurence Tribe] said, is his ability to make sense of complex legal arguments and translate them into current social concerns. For example, Tribe said, Obama wrote an insightful research article showing how contrasting views in the abortion debate are a direct result of cultural and sociological differences

Obama 1990 Interview: ‘We’re Going To Reshape Mean Spirited Selfish America, I Hope To Be Part Of Transformation’ [Updated]

Illinois Daily Herald -Associated Press: May 3, 1990: “Harvard Student Tackles Racism At Core

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — His boyhood friends in Indonesia were street peddlers, and his grandmother still lives in a mud-walled house in Kenya.
But Barack Obama is another world away, presiding over the Harvard Law Review as the first black president in the prestigious journal’s 103-year history.
The charismatic 28-year-old, ensconced in the halls where tradition reigns, is taking aim at another custom: Obama’s sights are set on the South Side of Chicago, not on a U.S. Supreme Court clerkship or a fast-track career with, a cushy firm.
“I’m not interested in the suburbs. The suburbs bore me. And I’m not interested in isolating myself,” Obama said in a recent interview. “I feel good when I’m engaged in what I think are the core issues of the society, and those core issues to me are what’s happening to poor folks in this society.”
His passion is rooted in his background. He was born in Hawaii, his father an Oxford and Harvard-educated economist from the African nation of Kenya, his mother a white anthropologist from Kansas.
Obama moved to Southeast Asia at age 2 when his parents divorced and his mother married an Indonesian. Until the fifth grade. Obama attended Indonesian schools, where most of his friends were the sons of servants, street peddlers and farmers.
Concern for Obama’s education led his mother to return him to Hawaii, where he attended public schools [FALSE] through high school. In 1983, he graduated from Columbia University with a degree in political science.
At a recent meeting in a Harvard cafeteria, his affinity with the underdog was readily apparent. “I lived in a country where I saw extreme poverty at a very early age,” Obama said. “Parts of my family in Kenya remain very poor. My grandmother still lives in a mud-walled house with no running water or electricity.
“That’s who I am, that’s where I come from, not always literally, but at least emotionally.”
Obama entered Harvard Law School in 1988, and through a combination of grades and a writing competition, was elected to head the law review this February. He succeeded Peter Yu, a first generation Chinese-American. Obama cautions against reading too much into his election.
“It’s crucial that people don’t see my election as somehow a symbol of progress in the broader sense, that we don’t sort of point to a Barack Obama any more than you point to a Bill Cosby or a Michael Jordan and say ‘Well, things are hunky dory,’” Obama said.
“There’s certainly racism here. There are certain burdens that are placed, more emotionally at this point than concretely,” Obama said.
“Professors may treat black students differently, sometimes by being, sort of, more dismissive, sometimes by being more, sort of, careful because they think, you know, they think that somehow we can’t cope in the classroom,” he said.
Obama sees the inner cities as the front lines of racism.
“It’s critical at this stage for people who want to see genuine change to focus locally. And it is crucial that we figure out how to rebuild the core of leadership and institutions in these communities,” he said.
For five years before law school, Obama took on that task in Chicago. As the director of a program that tried to bring South Side churches, unions and block associations together on projects, Obama was not trying to solve local problems, he said. Instead he sought to construct something more lasting — a forum for the community, “I’m interested in organizations, not movements, because movements dissipate and organizations don’t,” Obama said.
America suffered when the movements of the 1960s dissipated, he said. Those movements succeeded in raising doubts about harmful traditions of sexism and racism, but failed to offer a viable alternative.
“Hopefully, more and more people will begin to feel their story is somehow part of this larger story of how we’re going to reshape America in a way that is less mean-spirited and more generous,” Obama said.
“I mean, I really hope to be part of a transformation of this country.”And the future of black people and of America generally? “It depends on how good I do my job,” he said.
“Less mean spirited“… indeed.
I downloaded the scanned image back in 2008, and since so much time has past I have unfortunately forgotten the source.
And I have been unable to find a direct link to the article.
Update: Giving credit, where credit is due.
Thanks to @jstablehand here is the source of the original scanned image:
Edit May 18, 2012: link dead —
Stable Hand has also shared this link to the Jewish Odysseus report (dated September 28, 2008) on the Obama interview: “OBAMA BOASTED: “I’M NOT INTERESTED IN THE SUBURBS. THE SUBURBS BORE ME.”
Update 2:
I have found a reference to the article which also notes the author; ‘Allison J Pugh’ Associated Press writer here:
“From the mouths of babes” – Dave Levinthal Dallas Morning News Feb. 28, 2008
It’s from a story written by Associated Press reporter Allison J. Pugh in 1990, when Mr. Obama was a Harvard law student and president of the Harvard Law Review. [...]
Update 3: Pay dirt! (Left-wing) David Gregory host of Meet the Press made mention of the article here, including the relevant quotes:
MR. GREGORY:  It’s interesting, we actually found something from 1990, Rick, where he was elected to president of Harvard Law Review, which is very prestigious, and he gets a lot of pickup in that as, as you write about in the book.  The Associated Press has an interview with him, and this is what he says.  “`Hopefully, more and more people will begin to feel their story is somehow part of this larger story of how we’re going to reshape America in a way that is less mean-spirited and more generous,’ Obama said.” Remember this is 20 years ago almost to the week. “`I mean, I really hope to be part of a transformation of this country.’ And the future of black people and of America generally?  `It depends on how good I do my job,’ he said.”
You talk about somebody who seemed to have his head on about where he wanted to go ultimately.

BTW Tommy boy, another difference you seem unable to grasp, is that Obama loathes America and all that she stands for. Sooo…there is no comparison between his and Bush’s statements. Now get up off of your knees, and be a real man. Oops…what am I saying…never mind.

Obama’s Kenyan Birth Records Discovered In British National Archives

Thursday, July 19, 2012 17:28

WHERE LIES GO TO DIE – Evidence discovered shows British Protectorate of East Africa recorded Obama’s birth records before 1963 and sent returns of those events to Britain’s Public Records Office and the Kew branch of British National Archives.

(Editors note: The records eluded to in this story were discovered through a May, 2012 search through BMD Registers, a BNA partner site, using the search term "Obama". Corroborating evidence through public sources only implicates the identity of those involved but does not explicitly prove their identity in the absence of the availability of original documents.)

By Dan Crosby

of The Daily Pen

KEW, SURREY, GB – The last place anyone would think to look for a birth record of someone claiming to be a “natural born” U.S. citizen is Great Britain.The very inclusion of the Article II eligibility mandate in the U.S. Constitution was explicitly intended by the founding fathers of America to prevent a then British-born enemy usurper from attaining the office of the U.S. presidency and thereby undermining the sovereignty of the newly formed nation.
In the absence of honor, courage and justice on the part of those serving in the U.S. Congress and Federal Judiciary, Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s Cold Case investigative group has concluded the only law enforcement analysis of the image of Obama’s alleged “Certificate of Live Birth” posted to a government website in April, 2011 and found it to be the product of criminal fraud and document forgery.
The seeming endless evidence against Obama has now taken investigators to the foreign archives of Great Britain wherein it has been discovered that vital events occurring under the jurisdiction of the British Colony in the Protectorate of East Africa prior to 1965 were recorded and held in the main office of the British Registrar in England until 1995 before being archived in the BNA.
It now appears the worst fears of the U.S. Constitution’s framers were well founded as investigators working on behalf of the ongoing investigation into the Constitutional eligibility of Barack Obama have found yet another lead in a growing mountain of evidence within the public records section of the British National Archives indicating the occurrence of at least four vital events registered to the name of Barack Obama, taking place in the British Protectorate of East Africa (Kenya) between 1953 and 1963, including the birth of two sons before 1963.
Recall, investigative journalists working for have already discovered biographical information published by Barack Obama’s literary agent in which he claimed he was born in Kenya. Prior to Obama’s ensconcement to the White House, many international stories also stated that Obama was Kenyan-born as did members of Kenya’s legislative assembly.Since then information on Obama’s ties has been curtailed by government officials as the Obama administration has coincidently paid nearly $4 billion dollars for capital projects in Kenya.

arack Obama Sr’s Just Released INS File, Two Wives and Other Women Everywhere!! Posted on April 29, 2011 by newssleuth | 105 Comments By Newssleuth Click on Document to Enlarge An INS memo about Barack Obama Sr. who had a wife in Kenya when he arrived in Hawaii and then married Stanley Ann Dunham on February 2, 1961. The summer before, he had been running around with several girls and had been cautioned about his playboy ways. He replied that he would try to stay away from the girls. This is my summary of the part of Barack Obama’s Immigration file where two different girlfriends are mentioned along with a wife and son in Kenya, a wife and son in Hawaii and a wife in the Philippines. I woke up early and watched the Royal Wedding so don’t expect perfection from me today, okay? I am so tired. A mother, who contacted the INS regarding Barack Obama, was concerned for her daughter who was set on marrying Barack Obama even though the daughter knew that he had two other wives. The daughter was 27 years old and was set on marrying Barack Obama and subsequently went to Mombasa, Kenya. The INS agent said that because the daughter was of legal age and mentally competent they would not intervene. Click on Document to Enlarge Click on Document to Enlarge Another girl was from Kenya, sponsored by a Unitarian organization and going to high school in Massachusetts and living with an American family. She bought a round trip ticket and went to London, saying her sister was in London and sick. She left for London against the recommendation of her sponsor, the Unitarian organization, who then dropped her from their program. A Unitarian minister from the organization called the INS because the Kenyan girl had a round trip ticket and would be re-entering the US without a sponsor and she had not been re-admitted to school and was unable to get admitted into another school. The INS could not find a sister for the Kenyan girl in England. When she was trying to get back into the states, the Kenyan girl had Barack Obama, who the INS said was her boyfriend, call them several times on her behalf. The INS was told by the Unitarian organization that they thought she might have gone to London for “redacted.” Click on Document to Enlarge In an August 31, 1961, an INS memo tells of Barack Obama Sr.’s plan to stay at the University of Hawaii for another year to get his BA in Economics while his US Citizen wife, Stanley Ann, planned to go to school at Washington State University the next semester. The memo goes on to say that after Obama Sr. got his BA in economics, he intended to go to a mainland school for a doctor’s degree in economics then, after that, to return to Kenya. The memo says, “They have one child, born Honolulu 8/4/1961, Barack Obama II, child living with his mother (she lives with her parents and subject (Obama Sr.) resides at 1481 Alencastre St.) Click on Document to Enlarge

Report: Syrian National With Clear Ties to 9/11 Hijackers Living in NJ Suburbs, ‘Virtually Immune From Deportation’

Report: Syrian National With Clear Ties to 9/11 Hijackers Living in NJ Suburbs, ‘Virtually Immune From Deportation’

Syrian National With Clear Ties to 9/11 Hijackers Living in NJ Suburbs, Virtually Immune From Deportation

A Syrian national with established ties to the 9/11 hijackers is currently living in the suburbs of northern New Jersey, unworried about facing deportation by the U.S. government due to a series of mistakes made at the federal level, Fox News reports.
Following an investigation, Fox News found that Daoud Chehazeh received political asylum for the third time in November following a series of “bureaucratic screw ups at the federal level,” making him “virtually immune from deportation.” Fox reportedly reviewed court documents and interviews with former federal and state investigators in the case.
More from Fox News’s exclusive report:
Chehazeh arrived in the U.S. in July 2000 from Saudi Arabia and quickly settled into Paterson, N.J.’s Middle Eastern community. Paterson was the launching pad for the plot, where 11 of the 19 hijackers passed through before the attacks.
In Paterson, Chehazeh met up and lived with another key facilitator of the hijackers, a Jordanian named Eyad al Rababah. The significance of the Chehazeh-Rababah support network for the hijackers in Virginia and New Jersey was first reported by Fox News in May 2011. Law enforcement sources told Fox News that revelations Chehazeh was still living in the U.S. went to the most senior levels of the FBI.
Seven months before the attacks, Chehazeh, who had no job and no known source of income, suddenly decided to leave Paterson. Along with his roommate, Rababah, the two men moved to suburban Washington, D.C., and almost immediately made contact with Anwar al-Awlaki, who was the imam at the mosque in Falls Church, Va.
By April 2001, beside al-Awlaki, Chehazeh’s new circle of friends and neighbors included future Flight 77 hijackers Nawaf al-Hazmi and Hani Hanjour, a pilot. Chehazeh made a point to tell Rababah, even though both men later admitted to investigators they were not religious men, to go to the mosque and ask Imam al-Awlaki for work.
Jim Bush, the New Jersey state criminal investigator who was part of the 9/11 investigation code-named PENTTBOMB, said allowing Chehazeh to remain in the U.S. is a “slap in the face to Americans, especially the victims of 9/11 and the families.”
Bush’s partner, former FBI special agent Bob Bukowski, claims the Syrian national was “definitely part of that conspiracy.”
“He facilitated the moves and protection up to the whole flight, basically, of Flight 77. Could we prove that in a court of law? No. But there are other remedies. Deport him. That’s what should have been done in this case,” he said.
So why hasn’t Chehazeh been deported?
The U.S. government did make an effort to deport him, spending more than $500,000. However, Bush told Fox News that he knew how the system works. Additionally, as the FBI investigated him following the 9/11 attacks, the immigration judge on the case apparently was not clued in about his terror ties.
Here’s exactly what happened, according to Fox News:
In 2001, court documents show U.S. immigration judge Annie Garcy helped Chehazeh fill out his asylum application. She would eventually rule that he belonged to a social group of “people who are hopelessly in debt.”
“I think it was unusual for a federal judge to grant him asylum based upon his being a member of a social group called hopeless debtors,” said Andrew Napolitano, a superior court judge in New Jersey for eight years who now is a senior judicial analyst for Fox News. “The federal judge concluded that he would be tortured or killed in Syria.”
After the Board of Immigration Appeals reopened Chehazeh’s case in 2007 due to the alleged terror ties, he hired really good pro bono attorneys from NewYork City to represent him.
Then, last November, the Board of Immigration Appeals reversed its decision to reopen the case, and officially closed the case on Feb. 13. In other words, Chehazeh appears to be staying in the U.S. for the foreseeable future without fear of prosecution or deportation.

Administration Refuses to Explain Why It’s Arming a Domestic Agency for War

Administration Refuses to Explain Why It’s Arming a Domestic Agency for War

Surprise, surprise! The most transparent administration in history feels no need to explain its recent purchases of ammunition, including 1.6 billion rounds by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS.) It’s been estimated that’s enough ammo to carry on a war for over 20 straight years. This bullet-buy is in addition to the DHS purchase of 2,700 light-armored vehicles that will apparently be rolling down a street near you….for your safety, of course.
Infowars is reporting that Congressman Timothy Huelscamp (R-Kansas) said in an interview with one of their reporters:
“They have no answer for that question [regarding the DHS ammo purchase.] They refuse to answer that. I’ve got a list of various questions of agencies about multiple things. Far from being the most transparent administration in the world, they are the most closed and opaque.”
He stressed that he is not the only member of Congress demanding answers. But, no one’s getting any out of the Obama crew.
Huelscamp made reference to Rand Paul’s recent attempts to get answers on the topic of domestic drone strikes, noting that the only way to get this administration to say anything may be to refuse to fund DHS during the appropriations process, until such time as certain questions are answered. That, in fact, is the Congressman’s suggested strategy.
Huelscamp answered questions regarding the NDAA’s “indefinite detention” feature. (He was one of only a handful of Congressman from either party to vote “no” on that bill both times. ) And the bottom line on NDAA is the same as with the bullet-buy above and topics like the President’s “kill list” and domestic drone use against US citizens. That bottom line is this: The administration of Barak Obama obviously rejects the idea that it owes anyone at all any answers.
Who can blame them, really? The media might as well be on their payroll.  Good stooges that they are, you know they will not be asking any hard questions.
Our government is off the rails. “Do not remove the ancient landmarks,” says the Scripture (Prov 22:28), landmarks there having reference to identifying property boundaries. Those who moved the landmarks were stealing land and power that were not theirs by law. Metaphorically, the US Constitution was supposed to function like a set of landmarks, keeping the federal power inside a very narrow strip of allowable activity. Nice idea. The writers of the Anti-Federalist Papers had an inkling of what we’re now seeing. That is, for all practical purposes, the markers are gone, along with the boundaries they were supposed to enforce.
It’s easy to despair when we see all these things. It’s tempting to think there’s nothing left to be done, besides the two options of going quietly into that dark night, or going out in a hail of newly purchased bullets.
Christian citizen, there are still other options: strong, powerful ones.  Today (Friday, 3/22) and tomorrow, Kindle readers can get this article for FREE: Fetters of Iron: Biblical Limits on Civil Government. (Because we have to know right before we can do right.) See also the book, Resistance to Tyrants: Romans 13 and the Christian Duty to Oppose Wicked Rulers (paperback/kindle) for a Biblical defense of the virtue of standing up to government-run-amok, along with suggested strategies.

Hillary Clinton's 'hacked' Benghazi emails: FULL RELEASE

Hillary Clinton's 'hacked' Benghazi emails: FULL RELEASE

Published time: March 20, 2013 18:18
Edited time: March 21, 2013 12:37
On the back of widespread public interest RT has decided to publish in their entirety a series of memos which were allegedly sent from a one-time White House aide to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
The emails, which were allegedly sent by former political adviser Sidney Blumenthal to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, were forwarded to RT by a hacker using the alias “Guccifer.”
Guccifer was credited with hacking the AOL email account of Blumenthal last week, though the authenticity of the emails has not been verified.

The purported memos appear to contain sensitive information regarding the September 11, 2012 attacks on the US diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, as well the January 2013 hostage crisis in In Amenas, Algeria.
Blumenthal has been refraining from comments so far. RT reached Blumenthal's son Max, who confirmed that his father will not be making any remarks about the leak.

In the leaked emails distributed to the media, Guccifer copied and pasted the correspondences into new files using bold Comic Sans text layered over a pink background, possibly as a security precaution. The letter 'G' on the memos appears to be the hacker's watermark.

Below are 4 letters dating from September 12, 2012-February 16, 2013. Any omissions are unintentional, as we are publishing all of the information that has been provided to us in the interest of full disclosure.
