Simply Amazing Elephant Story. Must Read to End.

This is Truly An Incredible Story

FwDoElep11n 1986, Peter Davies was on holiday in Kenya after graduating from Northwestern University. On a hike through the bush, he came across a young bull elephant standing with one leg raised in the air. The elephant seemed distressed, so Peter approached it very carefully. He got down on one knee, inspected the elephants foot, and found a large piece of wood deeply embedded in it.

As carefully and as gently as he could, Peter worked the wood out with his knife, after which the elephant gingerly put down its foot. The elephant turned to face the man, and with a rather curious look on its face, stared at him for several tense moments. Peter stood frozen, thinking of nothing else but being trampled. Eventually the elephant trumpeted loudly, turned, and walked away.

Peter never forgot that elephant or the events of that day.

Twenty years later, Peter was walking through the Chicago Zoo with his teenage son. As they approached the elephant enclosure, one of the creatures turned and walked over to near where Peter and his son Cameron were standing. The large bull elephant stared at Peter, lifted its front foot off the ground, then put it down. The elephant did that several times then trumpeted loudly, all the while staring at the man.

Remembering the encounter in 1986, Peter could not help wondering if this was the same elephant. Peter summoned up his courage, climbed over the railing, and made his way into the enclosure. He walked right up to the elephant and stared back in wonder.

The elephant trumpeted again, wrapped its trunk around one of Peter legs and slammed him against the railing, killing him instantly.

Probably wasn’t the same elephant.

Sorry, but I just had to.  :lol:

Tax-exempt charity of Obama’s half-brother is a fraud

By now, unless you’re a know-nothing LIV (Low Information Voter), you’ve heard and seen plenty about the IRS singling out conservatives and Christians for special scrutiny. (See “Groups & individuals targeted by Obama’s IRS witchhunt,” May 15, 2013.)

Less known is another travesty in President Lucifer’s IRS-gate: The IRS had fast-tracked a charity run by Obama’s half-brother, Abon’go “Roy” Malik Obama, for tax-exempt approval.

The charity is called the Barack H. Obama Foundation, named after the Obama brothers’ Kenyan dad, Barack H. Obama, Sr. Its mission statement is “to provide people everywhere with resources to uplift their welfare and living standards in memory of Barack H. Obama: in the region of his birth, Kenya, and beyond.”

First reported by The Daily Caller, the Barack H. Obama Foundation was speedily approved for IRS exemption by Lois Lerner, the IRS senior official at the center of the targeting of conservative organizations that have waited over two years to receive tax exempt status. More astonishing still is the fact that the BHO Foundation was given retroactive tax-exempt status despite never having bothered to apply for it. The IRS also overlooked the foundation’s history of soliciting donations before receiving tax-exempt status.

Now, there is another layer of stench added to Malik Obama’s tax-exempt foundation:

It’s a fraud!

Charles C. Johnson reports for The Daily Caller, May 20, 2013, that on its  website barackhobamafoundation.org, the Barack H. Obama Foundation lists its address as 107 S. West St. #401, Alexandria, Va.

Here’s a pic of 107 S. West St., #401, Alexandria, VA:

107 S. West St., #401, is a UPS store!

“They probably just rent a mailbox here or receive mail here,” said a UPS employee when asked if the store was the address for the Barack H. Obama Foundation. She did not know if Malik Obama, who his website says divides his time between Kenya and Virginia, had been in to the store.

A visit to the UPS store revealed that there is a mailbox numbered 401.

To add to the mystery and confusion fraud, the Barack H. Obama Foundation’s IRS filings list another Virginia address: 4201 Wilson Blvd. Ste 110-152, Arlington, Va. 22030.

But that address is a marketing center for a drug-alcohol rehab center called A Better Today Recovery Services. A receptionist who answered the phone at A Better Today said neither she nor anybody in the office had heard of the Barack H. Obama Foundation. She said A Better Today had been located at the Arlington address for “a couple years.” The IRS filings that list the Arlington address as the foundation’s headquarters were dated May 2011.

“I don’t know if it’s listed wrong or what’s going on, but we have never heard of that,” the receptionist said, adding that A Better Today had never received calls or correspondence related to the BHO Foundation.

Despite raising more than $250,000, the alleged charity BHO Foundation doesn’t seem to have done much. Its website claims the organization has built a madrassa and was building an imam’s house as well as some “proposed latrines,” but there is no other evidence that the nonprofit was working to “mitigate social-shortcomings in areas of education and literacy, health and well-being, poverty, and lack of community infrastructure in such basic needs such as water, electricity, shelter and sustenance,” as the site says.

Alton Ray Baysden, a former Department of State employee and registered Republican who helped to start the Barack H. Obama Foundation, declined to comment. Repeated phone calls by The Daily Caller to the Barack H. Foundation went to the organization’s voicemail and were not returned.

Update (May 24, 2013):

The corruption goes even deeper.

Theodore Shoebat, of the Shoebat Foundation and author of the book For God or For Tyranny, claims that Obama’s half-brother, Malik Obama, is deeply associated with Omar al-Bashir, the man behind the attack on the US embassy in Khartoum, Sudan, which occurred at around the same time as the Benghazi attack of Sept. 11, 2012.

Malik is the Executive Secretary for the Islamic Da’wa Organization (IDO) stationed in Khartoum, Sudan, which has its primary focus in expanding Wahhabist Islam in the African subcontinent. It was also in Khartoum where Bashir declared that he was going to make Sudan’s new constitution “100 percent Islamic”. Malik Obama shares the same desires as Bashir.

Rescuing a baby elephant

At the Amboseli National Park in Kenya, an 8-month-old baby elephant fell into a hole and couldn’t climb out. Mommy and baby were frantic.

Thankfully, a team of three from the Amboseli Trust for Elephants came to the rescue.

They first shooed away the two adult elephants. Then two young men patiently and painstakingly wound a rope around Baby, and the jeep then pulled Baby out.

Free at last, Baby ran across the dusty steppe to find Mom.

You’ll need a tissue for their joyous reunion.

A Nugget from the Wayback Machine

Someone recently found this on the archive.org website’s Wayback Machine archive.  It was published in a Kenyan newspaper in 2004 about native son, Obama’s run for the U.S. Senate.

2016: Obama’s America – New Movie Opening July 27th

This looks like a film I’d actually pay money to see.  It’s a documentary, “2016: Obama’s America” based on conservative Christian, Dinesh D’Souza’s best-seller, “The Roots of Obama’s Rage,” and features an interview with George Obama, the president’s younger brother who survives  in deepest poverty in a little shack in Kenya.   The producer, Gerald R. Molen, is a proven Hollywood professional who was involved in the production of Schindler’s List, Minority Report, Rain Man and many other well-known feature films.
