Kenyan-born Obama all set for US Senate

Kenyan-born US Senate hopeful, Barrack Obama, appeared set to take over the Illinois Senate seat after his main rival, Jack Ryan, dropped out of the race on Friday night amid a furor over lurid sex club allegations…

    Mr Red,

    This may seem a little off-topic, but could you provide a little background on Obama’s Competitor, Jack Ryan? (could not read the article due to web filters)

    While I don’t have specific reason to doubt the linked article, the name Jack Ryan made me raise an eyebrow.

  2. Sure, Aaron. I understand the rasied eyebrow. I’m referring to the second Jack Ryan in the list below, not the first…

    Jack Ryan may refer to:

    Jack Ryan (Tom Clancy), a fictional character in a series of novels by Tom Clancy

    Jack Ryan (politician) (born 1959), former candidate for United States Senator from Illinois and ex-husband of actress Jeri Ryan

    …more…

    He was the Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate seat, and Obama was the Democratic candidate. Ryan was ahead until someone (take a guess who) had Ryan’s sealed divorce records made public. It was the epitome of “the politics of personal destruction”. Ryan was embarassed by what was in those previously-sealed divorce records, and he dropped out of the race.

    His eventual replacement, Alan Keyes, would go on to lose the general election to State Senator Barack Obama.

    Why is the unsealing of sealed divorce records not considered a scandal?

  4. Michael,

    It is a scandal. But this is a Chicago politician we’re talking about here. Dirty politics is the norm there.

  5. none says:

    Wow, you’ve found the smoking gun! If the East African Standard prints it, you know its got to be true!

    LMAO

  6. Aaron says:

    Far from being a smoking gun, it is just one more small piece in a growing collection of evidence supporting the subject case.

  7. none says:

    Michael,

    Please read up on the Wikipedia page for Jack Ryan and follow the supsequent sourced links. You will find that it was his GOP Primary contenders who requested the unsealing of his divorce records and not Obama as RedPill led you to believe.

    And RedPill can you show me where Ryan was ahead in the race before the records were made public?

    Indeed.

    In Kenya, it is “well known” that Obama is “a son of this [Kenyan] soil“.

  10. Michael,

    It is a scandal. But this is a Chicago politician we’re talking about here. Dirty politics is the norm there.

    And where is the MSM on this?

  11. The Democratic Socialists control almost all of the MSM.

    One exception is Fox News. You could try asking Glenn Beck if he is interested in investigating who un-sealed the Ryan divorce records. I don’t for a minute buy what “none” said above about Republicans being behind it. That’s patently absurd.

  12. You could try asking Glenn Beck if he is interested in investigating who un-sealed the Ryan divorce records. I don’t for a minute buy what “none” said above about Republicans being behind it. That’s patently absurd.

    Ryan’s rivals in the GOP nomination race did suggest that he release the divorce records.

    The actual unsealing of the divorce records should be fully investigated.

  13. Ryan says:

    Let me get this straight. Are you guys against revealing personal documents about a candidate, or for it? Mr. Pill, didn’t you rejoice at finding the divorce records of Obama’s Mother? You are on a personal mission to poke into every nook and cranny of everyone who ever shined the man’s shoes, yet the release of a republican’s divorce records is now a “scandal” and “dirty politics”.

  14. Ryan,

    Nice straw man. Jack Ryan’s divorce records had nothing to do with his constitutional eligibility to hold the office of U.S. Senator.

    The questions of where Obama was born, and who his parents were, has evertything to do with his constitutional eligibility to hold the office of U.S. President and Commander-in-Chief.

  15. none says:

    I don’t for a minute buy what “none” said above about Republicans being behind it. That’s patently absurd.

    “as four of the GOP hopefuls called on front-runner Jack Ryan to make public all the documents from his divorce”

    And RedPill can you show me where Ryan was ahead in the race before the records were made public?

    Still waiting on this…or is this just another lie from you. I would find is surpising that Ryan was ahead considering Obama garnered the same amount of votes in the Democratic primary as that of all eight Republican candidates combined in the Republican primary.

  16. Captain Steve says:

    More proof of a coordinated Obama citizenship/background cover-up, and the Honolulu Advertiser newspaper is part of it.

    For days I’ve been posting the following news article where Tammy Duckworth, who claimed to know Obama well (and now on the payroll), says Obama was born in Indonesia.

    The article states (14th paragraph),

    “Both were born outside the country — Obama in Indonesia, Duckworth in Thailand — and graduated from high school in Honolulu — Punahou and McKinley, respectively.”

    The original article and quote can be seen here.

    http://74.6.239.67/search/cache?ei=UTF-8&p=Duckworth+working+to+win&fr=yfp-t-701&u=the.honoluluadvertiser.com/article/2006/Jan/08/ln/FP601080334.html&w=duckworth+working+work+works+win+won&d=GM0H2929Tkdh&icp=1&.intl=us&sig=RBXQUMEsLQaizrysuDCulg

    But in the last day or so (Oct 16,2009) the Honolulu Advertiser scrubbed it clean. That quote has been removed. They sanitized article. The new sanitized cover-up version can be seen here.

    http://the.honoluluadvertiser.com/article/2006/Jan/08/ln/FP601080334.html

    How is it that our “history” can be so easily re-written? I remember when we used to criticize the USSR for re-writing their history to suit their political desires. We are doing it in America NOW!!

    People need to be screaming bloody murder. Write to everybody you know. Let them know we’re not going to take this anymore!

    Captain Steve

  17. Ryan says:

    Nice straw man. Jack Ryan’s divorce records had nothing to do with his constitutional eligibility to hold the office of U.S. Senator.

    How do you know that? Perhaps his divorce records show that he obtained alternate citizenship. You like to pick and choose who shall be ordered to give up privacy rights to satisfy your needs.

  18. Ryan says:

    Captain Steve, the reporter screwed up, and they fixed the article. It can be argued that they should have left the article as printed, but media outlets don’t do that any more. If something is reported in error, it is usually corrected. I agree that a footnote should have been added instead of a rewrite though. We all know he was not born in Indonesia. There is nothing at all that points to that.

    So this proves what? That they are covering up his Indonesian birth? I though it was Kenya? Does this not just prove that the media is not good at reporting details, since we have reports of birth in two alternate countries. The most likely solution is that people misinterpreted his Kenyan heritage as being born there, and that people have misinterpreted his living in Indonesian as a youngster as being born there.

  19. Math says:

    Arghhh… too… much… logic… ;-)

  20. “none”,

    The source I read that said Ryan was ahead is not a polling company, and did not link to a polling company. As such, it is a secondary source, not a primary source. And since it is not a primary source, it could be faulty.

    Now, on another note, you have posted comments under more than one user name. You haven’t tried to impersonate someone else, but if I strictly applied the same rules to you as I did to Jax, you would be banned. Instead of “none” or “YouShouldTakeAChillPill”, why don’t you try to use a name that at least comes close to representing you?

    And yes, “ITookTheRedPill” represents me. I explain why on my “About” page.

  21. none says:

    Go ahead and ban me for calling you out on your lies!

  22. “none”,

    1) Use a name that represents you, or I might just take you up on your challenge to ban you.

    2) Please link to a primary source poll that shows that status of the race 1 week prior to the divorce records being unsealed. If you can’t, then I recommend you drop the issue.

    3) The election was to replace Senator Peter Fitzgerald, a Republican.

    4) If Obama was so sure of an electoral victory over Ryan, there would have been no need for the divorce records to be released.

    5) If the divorce records were released after the Republican primary was completed, why would any Republican primary challenger benefit from the release of the records? Why didn’t any of those challengers step in when Ryan dropped out? Why did it have to be Alan Keyes who came in to represent the Republican party, and not one of the original Republican primary challengers?

  23. none says:

    I don’t have a source poll from 1 week prior to the divorce records being unsealed…will 3 weeks prior work? Nice try though. LMAO

    p.s. Didn’t Cypher take the red pill too? Cypher quote: “Ignorance is bliss”.

  24. Sally HIll says:

    If you have no problem with Ryan’s records being forcefully released – whether by repubs or dems – then you should have no problem with wanting Obama to release ALL his records.

    Do I think it was unfair to force the release of Ryan’s records. No – not really. If you want to play in politics, then you have to know your life is an open book. And if you haven’t lived a respectable life prior to politics, maybe you should think twice or either be prepared to take the heat. This applies to Obama as well – seemingly Obama doesn’t agree. He likes for his opponents lives to be an open book, but not his.

    I agree with Pill – if Obama was ahead and had no misgivings about winning, why force the issue, but then maybe it wasn’t ALL Obama forcing the issue….remember, we are talking about Chicago – nuff said.

    “The most likely solution is that people misinterpreted” – or he had used a false Indonesian birth to obtain foreign student aid and that is the info that popped up when the reporter/journalist researched and wrote the article. I agree – I don’t believe he was born in Indonesia, but I also don’t believe that info was just pulled out of the great big sky – SOMETHING SOMEWHERE lead that author to believe he was born in Indonesia.

    And if there were no problems or issues surrounding Obama’s birth, why change the article? Why not just leave it as it has been sitting there for 3 years? Unless someone is trying to hide something, then there would be a need to change it. Question is – WHO changed it or WHO asked that it be changed?

    For someone sitting in the highest office of the land – seemingly ignoring all this hoopla, he sure is making some mighty grand statements without uttering one single word on the subject.

  25. Ryan says:

    President Obama Admitted He Was “Kenyan-Born”.

    What the hell are you talking about. Being born in the US, having a father who is Kenyan makes a person “Kenyan-born”? I have never heard the phrase used in this way, and I challenge you to find a use like that anywhere. You can’t make up new uses of the English language.

    Kenyan-born means born on Kenyan land.

    Redpill,

    Check out Leos blog. Please shoot an email to me so that I can send you the link to the new forum that I’ve been putting together.

    Looking forward to hearing back from you.

  27. Sallyven says:

    Ladysforest and “Redpill”–I would very much like the link as well. I have been following this blog, Leo’s, Apuzzo’s, and Phil’s for quite a while, and would be interested in participating if a new discussion forum is created.

  28. Ladysforest says:

    Hi Sallyven,

    The new forum is

    http://www.meetup.com/Natural-Born-Citizen-Coalition-for-Legal-Action/

    While it is not actually a blog, it is dedicated to being a resource to provide an “internet rally location” focused on the NBC issue. Also, to begin to bring together as many groups, organizations and individuals under one umbrella as we can. Comments can be left, questions asked, ect.

    From this forum the (e)word can be sent out if a petition needs to be signed, or letters need to be written. Or a march/supportive gathering needs to happen.

    It is just getting put together now, so it’s a tad skimpy, still have to add a blog roll, ect.. I’m just now putting together the list of sites and blogs to contact-there are a mind boggling number.

    There seemed to be a need for a place to unite the blogs so that we can reach the numbers we need when we need them.

  29. Thank you, Ladysforest. I appreciate your doing that and spreading the word. I didn’t mean to ignore your earlier comment, I’ve just been very busy with both family and business activities.

    Thanks again!

  30. Ladysforest says:

    Understood Redpill.

    Stop by and join up when you get a moment.

    Thank You!

  31. BOB says:

    Amazing how difficult it is to gernerate any interest in investigating the sleazy, mostly hidden past of Obama, even among the conservatives on MM’s blog.

    I guess locking down everthing possible that could be related to your presidential eligibilty, and having Frank Marshall Davis for a mentor, along with the “God Damn America” Reverend Wright, is nothing to be bothered about?

  32. Bob,
    It is amazing how any conservative could think this isn’t worth investigating. I, for one, won’t stop supporting and defending the Constitution of the United States.

  33. It has been advanced that both papers printed identical lists as the general rule. As I mentioned before, this was pointed out to add more “weight” to the (ahem) proof these newspaper birth announcements lend to obama’s birth story… So I pulled a sample size of ten days from each paper. I began the splendidly tedious process of comparing the incidence of the same birth announcements being listed in both papers. Mainly with an eye towards how often they matched in exact order.The only time this occurred in that particular way within the ten days that I researched, was on the dates that had obama’s birth announcements.

    And I even took the extra steps of comparing editions to a three day range (edition before, same date, edition after) of the sister publication. So, I tried to cover all the bases in a fair comparison.

    Well, OK. The ONE and ONLY time that the two papers published the birth list, beginning at the first announcement, in order, was in the editions that obama’s birth announcement appeared. This was indeed the only time that these announcements were printed this way, as the closest the papers came to doing this again never had all the same names listed in the exact same order. I figured the ten day sample would give conclusive data as to if this was uncommon.

    That wasn’t the only anomaly she found… follow the link for more.

    I hear ya BUT – Kenyan born? Maybe maybe not – my point is WHO KNOWS?
    The same media that claims carbon dioxide is causing global warming (it’s the MONoxide folks, the stuff plants CAN’T eat and clean up) and when they do mention monoxides they present both as being ‘practically’ the same thing. With rationale like this (on the part of those we trust for accurate information????) Homer Simpson would have been convicted right along with OJ if the murder trial had gone the other way and the idiot jurors had realized that soaking a leather glove in blood ALWAYS SHRINKS IT.
    Just my .02 cents worth – although with a background in crime showbiz, taking a wrong size glove along just to confuse things would be unlikely?
    I digress. I voted for Obama and I will be sorely pi$$ed if he is indeed a fraud. Hell hath no fury like a voter scorned.

  35. joe says:

    Also I have a question – what is said is not always what was meant – I see three possible meanings in someone saying they were kenyan born – 1) of Kenyan ANCESTRY, 2) under the Kenyan flag i.e. Kenyan legal jurisdiction and 3) born in the country of Kenya.
    I have heard people say they were ‘italian born’ – but they have never been to Italy, their ‘people’ came from there… see what I mean?
    I agree with anyone and everyone that believes this is a serious issue and insists on the rights of the US people to know exactly how things stand and with precise and (if necessary) illustrated definitions!!!

  36. Joe,

    Thanks for your comments.

    I don’t know where Obama was born. Part of the point is that no original, hard-copy, initial birth certificate has been brought to either the Legislative branch (Congress) or the Judicial branch for their inspection. That could change if the Supreme Court decided in their conference today to grant a writ of certiorari in the case of Charles Kerchner, Jr., et al., Petitioners v. Barack H. Obama, President of the United States, et al.

    I voted for Obama and I will be sorely pi$$ed if he is indeed a fraud. Hell hath no fury like a voter scorned.

    I agree with anyone and everyone that believes this is a serious issue and insists on the rights of the US people to know exactly how things stand and with precise and (if necessary) illustrated definitions!!!

    I agree.

    I don’t understand how even some usually awesome conservative bloggers don’t seem to “get it”.

    Just the Facts, Ed

  37. There are regulations concerning the seal that should be on any COLB that was actually issued by the State of Hawaii:

    The Seal of the Hawaii Department of Health has been in effect since 1988 when it was made a part of the HDOH Title 11-1 administrative rules: “§11-1-2 Seal of the department of health. a) The official seal of the department of health shall be circular in shape, two and one-fourth inches in diameter. At the curve on the top portion there shall be the words “DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH” and at the curve on the bottom portion there shall be the words “STATE OF HAWAII .” At the curve on each side portion shall be a star. In the center of the seal shall be the Caduceus, a winged rod entwined with two serpents, which has long been recognized as a universal symbol of medicine. The Caduceus shall be encircled by an indentation, which shall separate it from the words “DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH” and “STATE OF HAWAII .”

    At long last, a copy of the Hawaii Department of Health seal has been disclosed by the department directly. And this seal is consistent with the description of the seal in the Title 11-1 Administrative rules.

    But guess what? The “seal” on the “COLB” that was produced at and by the Obama campaign headquarters in Chicago does NOT match the seal that was released directly from Hawaii, and the “Obama COLB seal” is NOT consistent with the description of the seal in the Title 11-1 Administrative rules.

    The pResident is a fraud and usurper.

    Unveiling the HDOH Seal

  38. The best CON in the history of the U.S.A.

  39. What other president has so many doubts, The best CON in Americas history.
