This is an email forwarded to me by my old friend and supervisor, Cal, apparently emailed to him and signed by someone name Stan. I have no way to prove or disprove it's contents.
This election has me very worried. So many things to consider. About a year ago, I would have voted for Obama. I have changed my mind three times since than. I watch all the news channels, jumping from one to another. I must say this drives me crazy. However, I feel if you view MSNBC, CNN, and Fox News, you might get some middle ground to work with.
About six months ago, I started thinking, "Where did the money come from for Obama". I have four daughters who went to College, we were middle class, and money was tight. We (including my girls) worked hard and there were many student loans. I started looking into Obama's life.
Around 1979 Obama started college at Occidental in California. He is very open about his two years at Occidental, he tried all kinds of drugs and was wasting his time but, even though he had a brilliant mind, did not apply himself to his studies. "Barry" (that was the name he used all his life) during this time had two roommates, Muhammad Hasan Chandoo and Wahid Hamid, both from Pakistan.
During the summer of 1981, after his second year in college, he made a "round the world" trip. Stopping to see his mother in Indonesia, next Hyderabad in India, three weeks in Karachi, Pakistan where he stayed with his roommate's family, then off to Africa to visit his father's family. My question - Where did he get the money for this trip?
Nether I, nor any one of my children would have had money for a trip like this when they where in college. When he came back, he started school at Columbia University in New York. It is at this time he wants everyone to call him Barack - not Barry. Do you know what the tuition is at Columbia? It's not cheap to say the least! Where did he get money for tuition? Student Loans? Maybe.
After Columbia, he went to Chicago to work as a Community Organizer for $12,000 a year. Why Chicago? Why not New York? He was already living in New York. By "chance”, he met Antoin "Tony" Rezko, born in Aleppo Syria, and a real estate developer in Chicago. Rezko has been convicted of fraud and bribery this year. Rezko, was named "Entrepreneur of the Decade" by the Arab-American Business and Professional Association".
About two years later, Obama entered Harvard Law School. Do you have any idea what tuition is for Harvard Law School? Where did he get the money for Law School? More student loans? After Law school, he went back to Chicago. Rezko offered him a job, which he turned down. However, he did take a job with Davis, Miner, Barnhill & Galland. Guess what? They represented "Rezar" which is Rezko's firm. Rezko was one of Obama's first major financial contributors when he ran for office in Chicago. In 2003, Rezko threw an early fundraiser for Obama which Chicago Tribune reporter David Mendelland claims was instrumental in providing Obama with "seed money" for his U.S. Senate race.
In 2005, Obama purchased a new home in Kenwoood District of Chicago for $1.65 million (less than asking price). With ALL those Student Loans, where did he get the money for the property? On the same day Rezko's wife, Rita, purchased the adjoining empty lot for full price. The London Times reported that Nadhmi Auchi, an Iraqi-born Billionaire loaned Rezko $3.5 million three weeks before Obama's new home was purchased. Obama met Nadhmi Auchi many times with Rezko. Now, we have Obama running for President.
Valerie Jarrett, was Michele Obama's boss. She is now Obama's chief advisor and he does not make any major decisions without talking to her first. Where was Jarrett born? Ready for this? Shiraz, Iran! Do we see a pattern here? On the other hand, am I going crazy?
On May 10, 2008 The Times reported, Robert Malley advisor to Obama was "sacked" after the press found out he was having regular contacts with "Hamas", which controls Gaza and is connected with Iran. This past week, buried in the back part of the papers, Iraqi newspapers reported that during Obama's visit to Iraq, he asked their leaders to do nothing about the war until after he is elected, and he will "Take care of things". Oh, and by the way, remember the college roommates that where born in Pakistan? They are in charge of all those "small" Internet campaign contributions for Obama. Where is that money coming from?
The poor and middle class in this country? Or could it be from the Middle East? And the final bit of news. On September 7, 2008, The Washington Times posted a verbal slip that was made on "This Week" with George Stephanapoulos. Obama on talking about his religion said, "My Muslim faith". When questioned, "he made a mistake". Some mistake!
All of the above information I got on line. If you would like to check it - visit Wikipedia, encyclopedia, Barack Obama; Tony Rezko; Valerie Jarrett: Daily Times
Obama visited Pakistan in 1981; The Washington Times –September 7, 2008; The Times May 10, 2008.
Now the BIG question - If I found out all this information on my own, why haven't all of our "intelligent" members of the press been reporting this? A phrase that keeps ringing in my ear - "Beware of the enemy from within!”
P.S. I checked most of this info out myself and it is factual!!!
As I said at the beginning, I received this email a week ago from an old friend and former supervisor (when I was a lad in the Central Division Consumers Power Company electrical engineering department...) it was signed by Stan. My former supervisor's name is NOT Stan so I'm certain he didn't generate it, he merely passed it along.
The questions posed by it's author are valid; we don't know jack-shit about Obama (or his campaign contributions that are under some scrutiny now by the FEC) other than as John McCain finally admitted, Obama came out of nowhere and hasn't done much of anything since except run for the highest office in the land. That act of running, in Obama’s own words, is qualification enough that he has the basic executive experience to run the country. Oh, really? I use 'run' loosely as most presidents are flummoxed by a contrary Congress and don't accomplish a fraction of what they set out to do, ergo their campaign promises are a joke.
Back to experience, I've watched TVs "Law & Order" series from its outset, many more years than Obama has been in the U.S. Senate... I suppose that qualifies me run for the office of District Attorney here in beautiful Wexford County. Damn, it's too late to get on this election's ballot so I'd better get busy writing a couple of autobiographies in order to settle in on exactly who I am and what I might be about.
Then there is this little unresolved problem of qualifications… in order to serve as president of the United States, one must be born in the United States or one of it’s protectorates, as explained here, to wit:
Qualifications for the Office of President
Age and Citizenship requirements - US Constitution, Article II, Section 1
No person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained to the age of thirty-five years, and been fourteen years a resident within the United States.
Term limit amendment - US Constitution, Amendment XXII, Section 1 – ratified February 27, 1951
No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of the President more than once.
So our liberal friends will continue to argue about what the definition of the word “is" is… and they will pathetically argue as to what the Founding Fathers meant by “natural born.” Once such remark, “Duh, does that mean born without use of an anesthetic pain-killer, man?”
In a case now pending, Barack Obama and his legal counsel, instead of producing a valid birth certificate, chose instead to fend off a pending legal action taken in Pennsylvania by a Phillip J. Berg, attorney-at-law, who is petitioning the presiding court to force Obama to produce such a document, if there is such a thing.
Instead, this is the latest response:
Lafayette Hill, Pennsylvania – 09/24/08)
Philip J. Berg, Esquire, the Attorney who filed suit against Barack H. Obama challenging Senator Obama’s lack of “qualifications” to serve as President of the United States, announced today that Obama and Democratic National Committee [DNC] filed a Joint Motion-to-Dismiss on the last day, to file a response, for the obvious purpose of delaying Court action in the case of Berg v. Obama, No. 08-cv-04083.
Their joint motion indicates a concerted effort to avoid the truth by delaying the judicial process, although legal, by not resolving the issue presented: that is, whether Barack Obama was “natural born.”
So many questions, so little time. Later... take care out there.
