AP 2004 FLASHBACK: “Kenyan-Born Obama All Set for US Senate”

Earlier today Breitbart.com published a 1991 booklet by Barack Obama’s literary agent that claimed Obama was “born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.”

It’s not the only time Barack Obama claimed to be born in Kenya.

On Sunday, June 27, 2004
, the AP published an article about “Kenyan-born Obama”.
The article can still be found in the internet archive.

“Kenyan-born Obama all set for US Senate”

Here’s part of the article:

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.

The allegations that horrified fellow Republicans and caused his once-promising candidacy to implode in four short days have given Obama a clear lead as Republicans struggled to fetch an alternative.

As far as we know, Barack Obama never refuted this article.

    Ah yes – let’s get back to the vetting of the Obama rise in power in Chicago.

    A CALIFORNIA judge was put in play to release the sealed divorce records of Obama’s opponent for the Illinois Senate seat, Jack Ryan.


    What most of the country still never gets is that Obama rose to power in the most corrupted way – the Chicago Way – and it just kills us Chicago folks that this never got any legs in the media.

    The republicans will do nothing, he owns them.

    I am astounded that his $3million worth of attorneys who have gone all over the country burying things managed to miss this one! Looks like the DNC isn’t going to have such an easy time certifying his eligibility THIS time .. . . and maybe we can even get Congress to stand up and IMPEACH. HMMM – Can you impeach somebody who is illegally holding office in the first place?

  • Economan

    Obama’s birth certificate is a FORGERY! Last I checked, there were laws against forging official gov’t documents.

  • kathteach

    BTW – this was Obama in 2004 – his rise to power as he had already been determined the perfect puppet for the presidency in 2008.

    I am not like others who think he is so mart and crafty. I have always believed he has been the biggest PUPPET president ever,,,,,and I think any evidence of his ability to come out without a teleprompter has documented this for three years……

    “the cops were stupid”…..”he looks as if he could be my son”….”after the elections we’ll talk about moving missile defense away from Poland” …..”the troops are dying in Afghanistan in my behalf”……and so on and so on to ad nauseum….

    I posted a link to this here 6 months ago in a thread where you guys were all arguing over how you wont be drawn into this ‘Birther’ silliness…

    All of this stuff was out there before 2008. This is not new news, some were paying attention but this spark got smothered by the media and the juvenile tendency of the Left to mock anyone who presents facts with derogatory name calling like ‘Birthers’. The spark didn’t create a flame then I doubt it will do so now. But the President should be confronted with his publisher’s bio. He neither denied it or he was willfully ignorant of those doing business on his behalf. Either way it exposes what a corrupt POS this man is.

    Now that’s funny. (and according to The Left, racist, I presume!)

  • dba…vagabond trader

    Only two conclusions come to mind:

    He was plumping up the resume to appear more exotic or he was born in Kenya.

  • Hyppolitical

    And there are these foreign news sites as well:

    “The Kenyan-born Senator will, however, face a stiff competition from his Republican counterpart, John McCain who has taken the presidential battle to the finishing line with vigorous campaign strategies.”


    “A Congressional Quarterly (CQ) politics monitored on BBC put the Kenyan born American ahead of his rival, Senator McCain.”


    “Kampala — Ugandans have formed a group to mobilise support for Kenyan born-senator, Barack Obama for the US presidency.”

    Obama’s long history of Communism….

    What more don’t we know about the man? Too many questions have gone unanswered!

    I hope the millionaire in Idaho that has been targeted by Obama, takes out newspapers ads and tv commercials in swing states, and shows this 2004 article, along with the Rev Wright tapes.

    The pending Jay Carney meltdown will be pure gold… don’t miss it lol

  • Lady Mondegreen

    And I hope all of your in California plan to vote for Orly Taitz for the Senate. My God, this is the kind of thing that gives conservatism a bad name. Let the birther garbage die and stick to the issues.

    Funny how history repeats itself

    Everyone knows The sun revolves around the earth . . . sun center of solar system? Heretic!
    Everyone knows The world is flat. . . Round? Heretic!
    Everyone knows that illness is caused by disease. . . by bacteria? Heretic!

    Everyone knows Obama born in Hawaii. . . What no birth certificate? Heretic! Birther!!!

    Funny how old fables and stories reflect man’s behavior

    In Emperor’s new clothes, if one could not see how fine the king’s new clothes looked they were heretics. . .ignorant, stupid, perverted

    Took a child with no bias to look and see King was naked. . Why doesn’t he have any clothes on?

    All we want to know about Obama is why doesn’t he show the original birth certificate and his school transcripts? Why are things sealed?

    If it is true that Obama was born in Kenya as a pamphlet from 1991 claims, then he willingly interfered when we are technically at war in iraq and Afghanistan and the war with terror.

    Under United States Code § 2388 – Activities affecting armed forces during war, Obama would go to prison, and those in the MSM and on his Staff who covered for him would also go to prison.

    UNITED STATES CODE § 2388 – Activities affecting armed forces during war

    (a)Whoever, when the United States is at war, willfully makes or conveys false reports or false statements with intent to interfere with the operation or success of the military or naval forces of the United States or to promote the success of its enemies; or
    Whoever, when the United States is at war, willfully causes or attempts to cause insubordination, disloyalty, mutiny, or refusal of duty, in the military or naval forces of the United States, or willfully obstructs the recruiting or enlistment service of the United States, to the injury of the service or the United States, or attempts to do so—
    Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.


    Treason would also come into play.
    As well as Sedition.
