Barry Soetoro is no longer registered to vote in D.C.!

nothing to see hereA week ago, on July 20, 2013, I did a post on the curious fact that, although Barack Obama is registered to vote in Chicago — and indeed, he did early vote at a Chicago precinct last November — a Barry Soetoro, with the same birthdate as Obama (August 4, 1961) and with the White House’s zip code (20500) is registered to vote as a Democrat in Washington, D.C.

The date of that voter registration was October 15, 2012 — 22 days before the pivotal November 6 elections.

I explained that “Barry Soetoro” was young Obama’s name when he was adopted by Obama’s mother’s (Stanley Ann Dunham) second husband, the Indonesian Lolo Soetoro.

Lolo Soetoro and Stanley Ann Dunham were married on March 15, 1965, when little Barry was 4 years old. In 1967, when Barry was 6 years old, he and his mother joined Lolo in Indonesia. Barry lived in Indonesia from ages 6 to 10. In 1971, 10-year-old Barry was sent back to Honolulu to live with his maternal grandparents; Barry’s mom remained in Indonesia. The marriage between Dunham and Soetoro ended in 1980. (Source)

There is no record anywhere of Obama having changed his name from “Barry Soetoro” back to Barack Hussein Obama Jr.

When I accessed the D.C. Board of Elections website on July 20, I took a screenshot of what I found so as to preserve evidence of what I’d found in case the information is scrubbed from the site. The screenshot shows the time and date on my laptop computer when I accessed Barry Soetoro’s voter registration information:

Soetoro voter registration

I also invited readers to repeat the steps I had taken to verify Barry Soetoro’s voter registration for yourself. Here’s how:

1. Go to the website of the District of Columbia Board of Elections. Click here or go to: https://www.dcboee.org/voter_info/reg_status/.

2. Type in the first name: Barry; and the last name: Soetoro.

3. Type in the birth date of August 4, 1961 — Barack Obama’s birthdate, according to the White House’s website.

4. Type in the zip code 20500, the zip code for the White House at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, Washington, DC, according to whitehouse.gov.

Well, today, I decided to do the search again.

So I  went on the D.C. Board of Elections and Ethics website and repeated the search for “Barry Soetoro,” and — SURPRISE, SURPRISE! – got this message:

“The Board of Elections and Ethics does not have a record matching the information you supplied.”

Here’s a screenshot I took, showing the time and date when I did the search:

Sonoran News sent a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to the D.C. Board of Elections and Ethics (DCBEE) director asking for a copy of the voter registration, if Soetoro voted in the Nov. 6, 2012 election, and what the process is for verifying voter registrations submitted by mail and online. This is the response from Senior Staff Attorney Terri Stroud at the DCBEE Office of the General Counsel:

“I am writing to acknowledge the receipt of your Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request dated July 22, 2013.  In accordance with D.C. Official Code § 2-532(c), I will either make the documents you have requested, or a legally segregable portion thereof, available to you, or notify you of my determination not to make the requested documents available, on or before Monday, August 12, 2013, which is the 15th business day after the date upon which I received your request.”

As Yogi Berra would say, this is déja vu all over again.

Recall that Social Security Death Index had alleged Sandy Hook massacre gunman Adam Lanza’s date-of-death as one day before the massacre. Then when bloggers discovered that, the information was scrubbed and Lanza’s date-of-death was changed to the day of the massacre, December 14, 2012. See:

UPDATE (July 31, 2013):

Tim Brown of Freedom Outpost found some interesting and very important information on the DC Board of Elections website (colored red below). In a press release dated June 14, 2010, the DC Board of Elections wrote:

The Board’s regulations direct that any voter whose mail is returned undeliverable is to be deleted from the voter registration list if they do not cast a ballot and fail to respond to notices over the next two subsequent general elections for federal office. However, the Board does not entirely delete any record from its voter registration database. While records of individuals removed from the list of registered voters are marked as ‘deleted’ and do not appear in the poll book at precincts on Election Day, the record itself remains on file permanently and can be reinstated.

District residents are encouraged to register to vote or update their registration using the Board’s online tool at http://www.dcboee.org and to submit their completed voter registration application by mail by August 16, 2010. Between August 17 and August 30, residents can only register in person at the Board’s office. Once early voting begins on August 30 and at the polls on Election Day, residents can only register and cast a ballot if they bring with them a current photo ID, utility bill, bank statement, or government document listing their current address. Those individuals will be required to cast a special ballot, which will only be counted if the Board verifies that the voter meets all qualifications and has provided proper proof of residence.

Since Barry Soetoro had registered to vote in the District of Columbia on October 15, 2012, which was 15 days after August 30 when early voting had already begun, this means that Soetoro could only have registered in person, with a current photo ID, utility bill, bank statement, or government document listing his current address at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

Furthermore, one wonders why the record of his registration was deleted after less than a year. According to the DC Board of Elections, they don’t do this. Thus, the plot thickens.

Were Boston Marathon bombings a false flag? – What’s a false flag?

False flag! False flag!

That’s the cry on the Internet as soon as another traumatic incident of mass casualties occurs in the United States.

It is said that the 9/11 terrorist attacks were a false flag. Skeptics of the Sandy Hook school massacre suspect it was a false flag. The latest incident — that of the two bombings at the April 15th Boston Marathon — is no exception.

I was aware of the latest cries of “False flag!” but was very reluctant to explore their credibility because if proven to be true, I think my last remaining shred of trust in my government would be obliterated.

But the cries persist. Notwithstanding my reluctance, I am undertaking a series of posts to explore that subject — in as responsible and careful a manner as I am able and as the gravity of a “false flag” accusation demands. This is the first post in that series.

Of all my (too many) years of undergraduate and graduate schooling, hands down the most useful course I’d ever taken was one on epistemology and the philosophy of science, from which I learnt how to think clearly and intelligently.

Epistemology is simply a fancy word referring to that branch in Philosophy that studies the nature of human knowledge:

  • The four different types (or domains) of truth claims: Empirical; Analytical (Math & Logic); Metaphysical; and Normative.
  • The criteria we use to evaluate and determine the truth or falsity of any truth claim (which depends on whether the claim is empirical, analytical, metaphysical, or normative).

But before one can even begin to evaluate the truth or falsity of some proposition, we must first have a clear idea about what the proposition says.

In this case — on whether the Boston bombings were a false flag event — before we examine the evidence (or lack thereof), we must first define the term “false flag” and list the criterial attributes of what constitutes a false flag incident. The definition and criterial attributes, in turn, will serve as our standards against which to assess the evidence.

What’s a False Flag?

From Wikipedia:

The name “false flag” has its origins in naval warfare where a flag other than the belligerent’s true battle flag is used as a ruse de guerre. [...] False flag (or black flag) describes covert military or paramilitary operations designed to deceive in such a way that the operations appear as though they are being carried out by other entities, groups or nations than those who actually planned and executed them. Operations carried during peace-time by civilian organizations, as well as covert government agencies, may by extension be called false flag operations if they seek to hide the real organization behind an operation.

As the term is used in contemporary America, a “false flag” incident is some traumatic public event that is:

  • False: The public are given an untruthful version of the event by the government and the media. The falsity can range from no one actually had been killed or hurt (it was all theater); to some of the alleged victims are real; to all the alleged victims are real but the alleged perpetrator(s) is a fall guy who was set up by the “real” conspirators behind the scenes.
  • Results in a “rallying around the flag” effect: Whatever the true nature of the “false flag” event, the objective is to arouse and manipulate the emotions (fear, anger, outrage, indignation) of the American people so that they’ll “rally around the flag” in an outburst of patriotism, supplying the current White House occupant and his (and his party’s) policies with their support and loyalty.

As an example, it is said the Sandy Hook massacre was a contrived event engineered to effect gun control. Conjectures about the massacre range from the extreme of no one in the school was killed (although Adam and Nancy Lanza were), to the 20 students and 6 adults of the school said to be killed really are dead but Adam Lanza wasn’t the killer (which would explain why Social Security had a date-of-death of Dec. 13, 2012 for him — one day before the massacre).

This blog on ZeroHedge lists governments from around the world that’ve admitted they carry out false flag terror.

What are some of the suggested signature attributes of a False Flag event?

1. Government officials and their mouthpieces use the incident to advance their policy agenda. This most certainly was and is the case with the Sandy Hook massacre. In the case of the Boston bombings, New York mayor Bloomberg already is using the bombings as a pretext, declaring that “our laws and our interpretation of the Constitution have to change” because of the bombings. (See also “Boston Bombing: Getting the sheeple used to the police state).

2. The co-occurrence of a government drill at the same time as the traumatic event and in around the same place. The purpose of the concurrent drill is to provide special ops personnel (who are the real perpetrators of the false flag incident) and/or professional crisis actors with a cover story should they be seen or caught on film at the false flag event. (See “Remarkable resemblance of Sandy Hook victims and professional crisis actors)

Indeed, the federal government’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) conducts HSEEP drills/exercises across America, in partnership with local/state governments. HSEEP refers to Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program. In the case of Sandy Hook, on the day of the shooting massacre at Sandy Hill Elementary School (SHES), Dec. 14, 2012, HSEEP conducted a “training course” drill, ”FEMA L-366 Planning for the Needs of Children in Disasters,” at 2800 Main Street, Bridgeport, CT, which is about 14 miles from SHES.

It is claimed that in the case of the Boston Marathon bombings, there was also a drill both before and during the marathon, and that suspicious-looking private military operatives were seen (and photographed) at the bombings.

3. Lastly, if we have evidence of outright fakery, for example, victims who supposedly were killed or wounded, but aren’t, then the event being a false flag is a no-brainer. Alas, clear and incontrovertible evidence is hard to come by, which is why some find significance in the odd behaviors of Sandy Hook parents, quickly switching from laughing and joking to near-choking on tears, and the absence of tears or of other signs of weeping, such as a red nose; and in memorial, donation, and other Sandy Hook massacre websites having a creation date that predates the massacre.

These subjects, and more, will be explored in my posts to come. So put your thinking caps on and stay tuned!

No Sandy Hook students are in the Sandy Hook children’s choir

On December 14, 2012, Americans across the fruited plains were horrified and devastated by news of the shooting massacre of 20 first-grade children and 6 adults at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in the peaceful prosperous town of Newtown in Connecticut.

The massacre of 20 five- and six-year-old innocent little children was the match that finally ignited a nationwide cry for gun control. As an example, Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-Calif) cited the “20 dead children in Newtown” as “a wakeup call” when she introduced Assault Weapons Ban of 2013 — her bill to ban “assault weapons” that include more than 150 rifles, handguns, and shotguns.

But it’s not just politicians who are exploiting the death of 20 little children.

In recent days, you would have to have a heart made of stone not to get a tad teary-eyed when you see photos and news videos of the Sandy Hook children’s choir singing their little hearts out — on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” at a New York Knicks game, and at the Grammy Awards.

Here’s a video of the choir on “Good Morning America” (GMA) on Jan. 15, 2013. In introducing the choir, ABC correspondent Amy Robach said (beginning at the 0:15 mark):

“We all know that this is a community, the Newtown community, that is both taking action and trying to find a way to heal. And these children, an amazing group of children right there, most of them from Sandy Hook Elementary School, they found a way to do both.”

One of the children in the choir, Kayla Verga, 10, said she was singing for her friend, 6-year-old Jessica Rekos, who was killed in the massacre: “Singing the song makes me feel like she’s with me and she’s beside me, singing along with me.”

Another girl, 10-year-old Sandy Hook student Jane Shearin, added, “I really want to be kind to the people who have lost their loved ones and help them to recover from their sorrow.”

When I saw the choir, like you, I marveled at how brave and strong these little kiddies from Sandy Hook Elementary School must be — to not only have survived that horrible horrible horrible morning on December 14, but to then muster themselves to help heal the rest of us by touring America singing “Over the Rainbow.”

Just to impress on you how amazing these children are, here’s a still shot of the choir from their appearance on GMA:

Moving tribute: The children, aged six to nine, appeared with singer Ingrid Michaelson on GMA this morning The children, aged six to nine, appeared with singer Ingrid Michaelson on GMA 

The day before their GMA appearance, the choir had recorded “Over the Rainbow” at the Fairfield, Conn., home of Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth, two former members of the Talking Heads and Tom Tom Club rock bands. Copies went on sale the next day on Amazon and iTunes, with proceeds benefiting the United Way of Western Connecticut and the Newtown Youth Academy.

The only problem with the above is this:

There are no Sandy Hook Elementary School students in the “Sandy Hook” Newtown Children’s Choir.

Matthew Sturdevant, Jenny Wilson, and Dave Altimari report for The Hartford Courant, Feb. 7, 2013:

Are the Newtown kids set to sing at the Grammy Awards really from Newtown? That’s the question Newtown’s superintendent is asking, and she’s also asked them to stop performing.

Organizers of a Newtown children’s choir that has received widespread attention are defending themselves against concerns raised by the superintendent of schools over whether they have misrepresented the group.

Superintendent Janet Robinson took to a national stage, CNN, Thursday to voice concerns about the Newtown choir, organized by Sabrina Post, who runs a performing arts studio in town.

Robinson said a handful of parents called her office Wednesday concerned about Post’s history with the school system and about confusion over whether Post’s group includes the same students in a chorus that performed at the Super Bowl. All of those students attend Sandy Hook Elementary School, where a gunman killed 20 students and six women on Dec. 14.

Post was a former Newtown High choral director before she was charged with stealing from the school district by using bogus expense vouchers. She was placed on leave in February 2005 and resigned in June 2005 after agreeing to pay the school board $11,000. She was also granted accelerated rehabilitation.

The choir run by Post made its first national appearance last month, singing “Over the Rainbow” on “Good Morning America.” Copies of the performance, recorded with Ingrid Michaelson and Tina Weymouth and Chris Frantz of Talking Heads, are being sold on Amazon and iTunes with proceeds going to the United Way of Western Connecticut and the Newtown Youth Academy. The choir performed at a recent New York Knicks game and is scheduled to appear at the Grammy Awards.

“I just know that I’ve got a lot of people saying, ‘They’re on “Good Morning America.” These aren’t our kids,” said Robinson. “Why are they using this name?”

Post said she was contacted by “Good Morning America” to organize the children’s choir. All of the children are students at her studio. “Everything is done by the book,” said Post.

New York producer Tim Hayes, who produced the “Over the Rainbow” project, defended Post and the choir’s fundraising efforts Thursday.

“‘I’m a little sad that someone’s personal vendetta is muddying something that’s completely transparent,” said Hayes, who received an email from Robinson on Tuesday telling him to stop working with Post. “She attacked Sabrina and the integrity of 21 little kids.”

Hayes said “the office of the superintendent supported the project but didn’t have the ability to do it. So we went to churches; they recommended the Newtown Youth Academy. I went to see for myself if it was doing something good. They said there’s a private music teacher in town, you can ask her, maybe that will help. Sabrina picked up the phone and offered to volunteer her time, her space.”

Hayes said Post “never has an opportunity to touch any of the money.”

Some town residents Thursday said they were not concerned that there is a choir of children who are not from Sandy Hook Elementary School representing the town and raising money.

I feel that Sabrina Post and her group — she’s very professional, she’s very caring, she’s been very involved with the children,” said Carol Lawson of Newtown, a former elementary school secretary. “And I feel you can’t exploit children without parents’ permission. She is not exploiting those children because those parents would not allow [them] to go to sing with her” if she were.

Did you get that?

Newtown residents like Carol Lawson aren’t at all bothered that a choir that represents itself as being comprised of students from Sandy Hook Elementary School, actually has no student from Sandy Hook Elementary School. All that matters is if you “feel” that the deception is “well-intentioned” and the deceiver “cares.”

It’s all about feeeeeeeelings.

Who cares about the Truth? After all, in the Left’s world of moral relativism, truth is what you say it is!

One more thing:

The United Way of Western Connecticut that gets some of the proceeds from the sale of the Newtown Children’s Choir’s “Over the Rainbow” is the same United Way of Western Connecticut that had put up a webpage, soliciting donations for Sandy Hook victims, on December 11, 2012 — 3 days before the massacre. (See “Sandy Hook RIP/donation webpages created BEFORE the massacre,” Jan. 8, 2013.)

Ancestry.com still has Adam Lanza’s date-of-death as a day before the Sandy Hook massacre

3 days ago, I did a post on my discovery that, according to the information on genealogybank.com, the SSDI (Social Security Death Index) had changed the date-of-death for alleged Sandy Hook mass murderer Adam Lanza, from the previous Dec. 13, 2012 to Dec. 14, 2012. (Click here for my post.)

The date-of-death of Dec. 13, 2012 is significant because that means Lanza had died a day BEFORE the massacre of 20 first-grade school children (and 6 adults) which had ignited a nationwide move to “control” guns and ban “assault weapons.”

On January 20, 2013, I had taken a screenshot of that Dec. 13, 2012 SSDI record precisely as a safeguard against that record being altered or scrubbed. Here it is:

Adam Lanza died 12-13-2012

Well, it appears SSDI had communicated the change of date, from Dec. 13, 2012 to Dec. 14, 2012, only to genealogybank.com.

Sharp-eyed FOTM reader kab made an important discovery:

Another website, Ancestry.com, still has the SSDI date-of-death for Adam Lanza as December 13, 2012!

I just took a screenshot of that Ancestry.com page, as proof and also as a prophylactic against Ancestry.com altering or scrubbing that information in the days to come — as I’m sure it will.

Adam Lanza SSDI ancestry.com

Note that I had taken the screenshot at 7:08AM, on 2/5/2013.

When one sets out to deceive, it’d be helpful to get the story straight.

GenealogyBank.com and Ancestry.com really must do better at coordinating with each other. Tssk, tssk.

A big h/t to kab! :D

Update (Feb. 18, 2013):

In a comment, a reader asked if Ancestry.com still has Lanza’s date-of-death as Dec. 13, 2012.

Nope!

As we had expected, Ancestry.com finally got caught up with genealogybank.com. Ancestry.com now says SSDI’s date-of-death (DoD) for Adam Lanza is Dec. 14, 2012. LOL

Here’s a screenshot I just took of the Ancestry.com page with the new DoD:

SSDI changed Adam Lanza’s date-of-death from Dec. 13 to Dec. 14, 2012 !!!

The Social Security Death Index (SSDI) is a database of death records created from the federal government Social Security Administration’s Death Master File Extract. SSDI data are available free-of-charge on genealogy websites, including GenealogyBank.com.

On January 20, 2013, I did a post on the curious discovery that, according to SSDI, alleged Sandy Hook mass murderer Adam Lanza had died on December 13, 2012 — one day BEFORE the massacre of 20 children and 6 adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. This was the information was on the website GenealogyBank.com:

Adam P. Lanza: Social Security Death Index (SSDI) Death Record
Name: Adam P. Lanza
State of Issue: New Hampshire
Date of Birth: Wednesday April 22, 1992
Date of Death: Thursday December 13, 2012
Est. Age at Death: 20 years, 7 months, 21 days
Confirmation: Proven

I took a screenshot of that GenealogyBank.com page on Adam Lanza, as a prophylactic in case the site scrubs or alters the page. As you can see (bottom right of the image below), I took the screenshot at 2:29 pm on 1/20/2013:

As recent as two days ago, on January 31, 2013, I again went on that genealogybank.com page and saw that the SSDI date-of-death for Adam Lanza was still listed as December 13, 2012.

I just checked the site again.

You’re not gonna believe this -

The date of death is now changed to December 14, 2012!!!!!!!!!

Here’s a screenshot I just took, where you can see that it was taken at 1:32 PM on 2/2/2013:

Adam Lanza's altered SSDI

It is also noteworthy that of the 28 people (20 children, 8 adults) who allegedly were killed on December 14, 2012, in Newtown, Connecticut, SSDI had the date-of-death for 26 people (Nancy Lanza; 19 children and 6 adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School) as December 14, 2012. (There is no SSDI for one child victim, Ana Marquez-Greene.) Of the 28 people killed that day, only Adam Lanza’s date-of-death was December 13, 2012that is, until SSDI recently changed it to December 14, 2012.

In other words, according to the original SSDI entry, the man who we are told was the lone gunman who perpetrated the Sandy Hook massacre, had died the day before he killed his 27 victims!

Will wonders ever cease…. [Snark]

Update (Feb. 5, 2013):

As of today, another genealogy website, Ancestry.com, says SSDI has Adam Lanza’s date-of-death as Dec. 13, 2012. See “Ancestry.com still has Adam Lanza’s date-of-death as a day before the Sandy Hook massacre.”

Obama had a mediocre 2.6 GPA at Columbia U.

A Columbia University alumnus told Neil Munro of the Daily Caller that Obama scored a decidedly mediocre GPA (grade point average) of only 2.6 in his two undergraduate years at Columbia University.

According to Munro, the source for the 2.6 number is a successful Silicon Valley entrepreneur, former Marine Corps combat veteran and a Columbia U. alumnus who maintains good ties with the university. The alumnus says that in 2004 he was told by a Columbia University official of Obama’s GPA after then-Illinois State Senator Obama had made a name for himself with a telepromptered speech at that year’s Democratic National Convention: “This person told me that he [Obama] was a pre-law, poli-sci major, had a lot of incompletes, and as best could be determined after sorting through the incompletes, had a GPA of 2.6.”

The source asked not to be named, but The Daily Call has verified his identity with at least one $2,500 contribution he’s made to Columbia.

The 2.6 GPA claim matches Obama’s own comments about his college career as being mediocre.

And that’s why the POS continues to refuse to make public his college records, despite a $5 million offer from Donald Trump to Obama’s charity-of-choice in exchange for those records.

A grade point average of 2.6 translates to a grade of B-, which is decidedly mediocre. I can attest from my decades as a university professor and from what other professors have told me, that profs are VERY VERY careful when it comes to assigning grades to African American students. Almost never are F (or fail) grades given to such students, even when an F is richly warranted. So Obama’s 2.6 GPA most likely was inflated. On top of that, there are all his Incompletes. No university I’ve ever studied or taught in has ever graduated a student with even one Incomplete grade. But Columbia University graduated Barack Obama with “a lot of incompletes”. Shame on you, Columbia University!

All of this makes it even more suspect that Obama had gained admission into Harvard University’s Law School by merit. No wonder he refuses to release his college records and his SAT scores (required for admission into undergraduate studies) as well as his LSAT (Law School Admission Test) scores.

Through the years, I’ve written countless letters of recommendation for my students seeking admission into law schools and graduate schools. I can honestly and unequivocally say that I’ve never known a student being admitted into a top-tier law or graduate school with a 3.0 (or B) undergraduate GPA, much less a 2.6 (or B-) GPA. I can confidently say that Obama had gained admission into Harvard Law School for Affirmative Action racial quota reasons.

Obama’s “wedding” ring inscribed with “There is no god but Allah”

Although he claims to be a Christian, Obama’s been dropping clues all along that he’s Muslim.

Now author Jerome Corsi finally found the smoking gun.

It’s a gold ring Obama wears on the fourth “wedding-ring” finger of his left hand (see White House photo below), which all of us had thought is his wedding band.

Lord of the Ring

Except it’s not.

In his bombshell of an article for WND, “Obama’s Ring: ‘There is No God But Allah’,” Corsi shows us the photographic evidence that Obama has been wearing that ring years before he married or had even met Michelle Robinson.

He’s been wearing that ring since at least his Occidental College days, as the following photos show:

Barack Obama in Occidental College library in 1981 (Tom Grauman, New Yorker magazine). Closeup of hand shows it’s the same ring. (Click pic to enlarge)

Obama sitting alongside Occidental College roommate Hasan Chandoo in 1981 (Tom Grauman, New Yorker magazine). Closeup of hand shows it’s the same ring. (Click pic to enlarge)

We know Obama also wore that ring during his Harvard Law School years because WND reported that a satirical edition of the Harvard Law Review published by students in 1990 contains a mock Dewers Scotch profile advertisement poking fun at Obama. Among a list of Obama’s “Latest Accomplishments” is: “Deflecting Persistent Questioning About Ring On Left Hand.” The comment suggests the ring was a subject of student curiosity at the time and that Obama was secretive about why, though an unmarried single man, he had that ring on his wedding finger.

Here’s a closeup of the same gold ring that Obama is wearing to this day. Note that it is not a smooth band, but appears to be sculpted or incised:

Closeups of the gold ring on Obama’s finger, from White House photos.

So what is inscribed on this precious ring that Obama has worn since at least his late teen years?

WND asked Egyptian-born Islamic scholar Mark A. Gabriel, Ph.D., to examine these photographs of Obama’s ring. Gabriel’s expert opinion is that the ring is inscribed with these words in Arabic:

There is no god but Allah

That phrase is the first half of the Shahada. The Shahada is the first of the Five Pillars of Islam, expressing the two fundamental beliefs that make a person a Muslim:

  1. There is no god but Allah
  2. Muhammad is Allah’s prophet

Here’s the entire Shahada in Arabic script: لا إله إلا الله محمد رسول الله

Sincere recitation of the Shahada is the sole requirement for becoming a Muslim, as it expresses a person’s rejection of all other gods. Faithfully wearing a ring inscribed with the Shahada is even more a demonstration of commitment than a mere recitation. There can now be no doubt that Barry Soetoro Obama is a Muslim.

Here are close-ups of the inscription on Obama’s ring:

Click here to read Corsi’s article. Here’s a video Western Center for Journalism made about this story:

TheBlaze.com reporter Billy Hallowell asked a Duke University professor to read Jerome Corsi’s article. The professor, who wants to remain unnamed, examined the photos you see above and affirmed the conclusion of the WND experts. “Based on what he saw, he said that this is, essentially, Arabic script on the ring and that it is the first part of the Shahada,” Hollowell said.

Admittedly, the inscriptions on Obama’s rings are blockish instead of the usual flowing Arabic script. So some in the blogosphere (see for example this) claim that the inscriptions do not say “There is no god but Allah” but are just meaningless “squiggly” designs. In so doing, they effectively are calling Dr. Mark Gabriel and the Duke University professor liars. Dr. Gabriel, in particular, is putting his reputation on the line with his testimony. Between anonymous bloggers on the one hand vs. Dr. Gabriel and a Duke University prof, I think I’ll choose the latter.

Clearly, this ring has a deep personal meaning to the POS because he’s worn it for decades — and always on his wedding finger!

Hallowell also pointed out that the Duke U. professor cautioned that there is Islamic teaching that forbids wearing gold. In WND’s report, Dr. Gabriel had explained that despite prohibitions in Islamic law, many Muslim men wear gold rings, even in strict Muslim countries, particularly if they contain a religious message.

H/t FOTM’s beloved Maziel (formerly Miss May), moxielouise, BritCapitalist, and Grouchy Fogie.

That is why I’ve repeatedly said Obama’s entire life is a lie.

Obama supporters roadside solicitations for fake charity

The face behind the mask

A friend of FOTM’s beloved Hardnox received this email from his nephew in Raleigh, NC:

So earlier this morning I went to get my car inspected and my registration renewed.

On the corner of a very busy intersection in Raleigh was about 15 to 20 older ladies all in the same color shirt walking up to cars and asking for money.

When I pulled up the lady came up to me and asked if I would like to donate money for battered women. I told them I only have twenties, but after I get my car inspected I will be back to give them some money.

After my inspection I returned like I said I would. The ladies were in a parking lot surrounded by three cop cars.

Curious, I pulled in and asked one of the cops what was going on.

I told them I was coming back to give them money. He asked me what I thought I was giving them money for and I told him “battered women.”  The policeman laughed and said the women were out here collecting money for Obama, but using Battered Women and Cancer Research to get people to give.

Unbelievable! I don’t care what your political preference is, that is just too much!!! I bet you won’t see that on the news!

Here are some other documented frauds committed by Obama supporters (source: CommieBlaster):

In 2007, Obama’s literary agent still says he was born in Kenya

Yesterday, the late Andrew Breitbart’s media organization revealed the explosive find of a brochure from two decades ago in which Barack Obama’s literary agency Acton & Dystel described him as “born in Kenya.”

In 1991, Acton & Dystel was promoting Obama as the author of the never-produced “Journeys in Black and White” by declaring Obama was “born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.” Here’s what the literary agency said in its brochure:

Barack Obama, the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review, was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii. The son of an American anthropologist and a Kenyan finance minister, he attended Columbia University and worked as a financial journalist and editor for Business International Corporation. He served as project coordinator in Harlem for the New York Public Interest Research Group, and was Executive Director of the Developing Communities Project in Chicago’s South Side. His commitment to social and racial issues will be evident in his first book, Journeys in Black and White.”

After this news went viral yesterday, Acton & Dystel came up with the lame excuse that it was a “fact-checking error.”

Well, 16 years later, the agency must still have the same incompetent “fact-checker” because in 2007, a year before the 2008 presidential campaign, Acton & Dystel still described Obama as “born in Kenya” in promoting his autobiography, Dreams From My Father!

I’m a published author, having singly written four university-press books and co-authored six others. I can therefore speak from experience dealing with publishers and agents that they don’t make up stuff about authors. They publish the biographical information that the authors gave them.

Drew Zahn reports for WND, May 18, 2012:

Twelve years later, however, the Dystel of Acton & Dystel was busy promoting Obama’s new book, “Dreams from My Father,” and still touting the author as “born in Kenya.”

Through the Internet archive Wayback Machine, WND found an August 2003 listing of Dystel & Goderich’s author bios, including the following: “Barack Obama was the first black president of the Harvard Law Review. He was born in Kenya to an American anthropologist and a Kenyan finance minister, and was raised in Indonesia, Hawaii and Chicago. His first book is ‘Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance.”

Even if the original 1991 brochure’s listing of Kenya as Obama’s birthplace was in error, as the agency has since claimed, it apparently was an error Obama allowed his publicist to persist in for over a decade, right until after he was running for president.

In April 2007, two months after Obama had launched his presidential bid, Dystel was still touting the then-Democratic senator from Illinois as “born in Kenya.”

Another trip to the Internet’s Wayback Machine shows Dystel & Goderich describing Obama this way: “Barack Obama is the junior Democratic senator from Illinois and was the dynamic keynote speaker at the 2004 Democratic National Convention. He was also the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review. He was born in Kenya to an American anthropologist and a Kenyan finance minister and was raised in Indonesia, Hawaii, and Chicago. His first book, DREAMS FROM MY FATHER: A STORY OF RACE AND INHERITANCE, has been a long time New York Times bestseller.”

Only a few weeks later, the Internet archive reveals, the publicist had changed Obama’s birthplace to Hawaii.

And it’s not just Obama’s literary agent. The Associated Press also said Obama was born in Kenya. (H/t FOTM reader Wade!)

In a syndicated report, published on June 27, 2004, by the Kenyan Standard Times, and which was, as of this report, available at http://web.archive.org/web/20040627142700/eastandard.net/headlines/news26060403.htm, the AP reporter stated the following:

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.

Something stinks, and it sure ain’t my Peekaboo‘s two litter-boxes!

Amazing Magic Card Trick!!!

FOTM’s Doc’sWife sent me this amazing magic trick.

Try it again. Pick another card….

And, again, your card is missing from Picture #4!!!!

It must be magic!

Nyaaaaa….

To find out how this trick works, scroll down….

It was no magic.

The reason why David Copperfield correctly “guessed” which card you picked — the reason why the card you picked is gone from Picture #4 is this:

The 5 cards in Picture #4 were never in Picture #1 !

This means that no matter which card you pick from Picture #1, you’ll never find it in Picture #4.

Go back and look at what the 6 cards are in Picture #1. From left to right, they are:

K♥         J♣         K♠         Q♦        Q♣        J♦
(King of Hearts; Jack of Clubs; King of Spades; Queen of Diamonds; Queen of Clubs; Jack of Diamonds)

Here are the 5 cards in Picture #4. From left to right, they are:

Q♥          K♣          J♥          Q♠          K♦
(Queen of Hearts; King of Clubs; Jack of Hearts; Queen of Spades; King of Diamonds)

It was no magic. It was simple cheating!

This was how I figured it out:

I begin with the a priori (presupposition or premise) that there is no such thing as anthropogenic (man made) magic, fans of Harry Potter notwithstanding.

David Copperfield, though hailed as the “King of Magic,” “Magician of the Century,” and the recipient of a “Living Legends Award” (!) from the Library of Congress, is not a magician but merely a very skillful “illusionist” trickster. For that he’s been richly rewarded, named by Forbes magazine as the 10th highest paid celebrity in the world in 2003, with total earnings of $55 million.

I then scrutinized the 6 cards in Picture #1. The red-colored King of Hearts immediately caught my eye, and I selected that.

When I got to Picture #4 and saw that, as predicted, my King of Hearts was missing, the red-colored King of Diamonds immediately got my attention. I had remembered when I looked at Picture #1 that the only red-colored King was the King of Hearts, but now there’s a red-colored King of Diamonds in Picture #4!

So I scrutinized the other 4 cards in Picture #4, went back to Picture #1, and…sure enough, all the cards in Picture #4 were never in Picture #1 to begin with!

At the risk of being preachy, there is a spiritual lesson in this.

Jesus warns that “I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.” (Matthew 10:16) We are also warned that in the end days, “there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.” (Matthew 24:24)

If Copperfield successfully tricks us into believing he performs magic, we’ll really be sitting ducks when that Man of Sin appears with his “great signs and wonders”.

This is magic:

“Every day will I bless you,
and I will praise your name forever and ever.
Great is the Lord and highly to be praised;
his greatness is unsearchable.”
-Psalms 145:2-3
