Sandy Hook and Obama’s Connecticut Social Security number

One of the many curiosities about the sitting President of the United States is the fact that, unlike us, he has not one, but multiple Social Security numbers (SSN).

In 2010, two licensed private investigators, Neil Sankey and Susan Daniels, found that multiple SS numbers are associated with Barack Obama’s name. Daniels and Sankey put their findings in sworn affidavits. Dr. Orly Taitz further verified their information with a third source, a retired Department of Homeland Security senior investigator named John Sampson.

In May 2010, the mystery deepened when it was determined that the SSN Obama is currently using (042-68-4425) has a Connecticut prefix, 042, but Obama had never lived in nor had associations with the state of Connecticut. Obama has been using that 042 SS number since 1979 when he was 18 years old.

In an article for Western Journalism, Stephen Baldwin writes:

All told, there are 49 addresses and 16 different Social Security numbers listed for a person whose name is spelled “Barack Obama.” […] the one Social Security number Obama most frequently used, the one beginning with 042, is a number issued in Connecticut sometime during 1976-1977, yet there is no record of Obama ever living or working in Connecticut. Indeed, during this time period Obama would have been 15-16 years old and living in Hawaii at the time.

In late February 2011, the mystery further deepened when retired US Air Force Col. Gregory Hollister, the litigant in an Obama eligibility lawsuit, conducted a search for Obama’s Connecticut SSN in the Social Security Number Verification System used by small businesses to verify employment eligibility. The results came back as:

Failed: SSN not in file (never issued)

To the question of why Obama obtained a Connecticut-issued SSN instead of one by Hawaii, Joel Gilbert, maker of the documentary Dreams from My Real Father, has a plausible explanation: Obama’s peculiar Connecticut-issued SSN is related to the question of Obama’s birth certificate.

At the inception of the program, all SSNs were assigned and cards issued based solely on information provided by the applicant. However, in the 1970s, Social Security Administration began requiring proof of age, identity, and citizenship. In 1977, lacking a valid birth certificate, Obama was forced to buy a SS number so he could get his first job at a Honolulu Baskin Robbins. Gilbert surmises that Obama was sold an SSN that was Connecticut-based so it couldn’t be traced back to the Hawaii SS office. (See “Why Obama has a Connecticut Social Security no.”)

It goes without saying that it is a crime to use a Social Security number that isn’t yours. It is also a fact that once the Social Security Administration issued a SSN, even after the recipient died, SSA will never reissue that number to another person. There is one Numident record for each SSN ever assigned. A numident is the social security number itself, which is only assigned once and is never used again unless it is stolen.

So who was the original owner of Obama’s Connecticut-issued Social Security number?

In May 2011, blogger The Obama Hustle conducted a database pull for SSN 042-68-4425 and got the names of Harrison J. Bounel and Barack Obama (see below), indicating that one SSN was being used by both men.

Search results on SSN 042

Since Obama uses Harrison Bounel’s SSN, a search for the relatives of Harrison Bounel shows Michelle Obama as Bounel’s spouse (see below).

Michele as Bounel's spouse

So who is/was Harrison J. Bounel?

Leslie Bishop, a genealogy expert with over 25 years of experience, found a 1940 Census document showing a Harry Bounel, age 50, residing in Bronx, NY, which would make 1890 Bounel’s birth year. Harry Bounel’s listing is on line 48.

In September 2012, Leslie Bishop sent a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to the Social Security Administration for information on a Harry Bounel with the SSN 042-68-4425. Below is the letter she received (you can also see the letter on Scribd):

Letter from SS re. Harrison Bounel

In the letter dated November 16, 2012, Dawn S. Wiggins, Freedom of Information Officer at the Social Security Administration, wrote that in spite of Leslie Bishop’s FOIA request, her request is declined because “disclosing this information would be a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.” Mind you, in 2012 Harrison Bounel would have to be 120 years old, which means he had long died. But SS Administration nevertheless claims revealing information about his SS number would be an “invasion” of the dead man’s privacy.

Bishop stated that Social Security Administration “acknowledged my request for THAT numident and denied my request. In other words, that record exists and since there is only one Numident per SS# and that Numident for Harry Bounel with SS# 042-68-4425 apparently exists, then its not possible that O is using that number legally and it is apparent that Bounel is the original holder of that number.” (Source: The Obama Hustle)

Dr. Orly Taitz writes on Jan. 18, 2013:

According to 1940 census Harry Bounel was born in Russia in 1890. This is the date of birth on some of Lexis records associated with the Social Security number 042-68-4425…. Also, we had some records showing Harry Bounel residing with Robinson family in CT in 1910.

By “Robinson family,” Dr. Taitz means Michelle Obama’s family, the Robinsons (Michelle’s maiden name is Michelle Robinson). Taitz continues:

Michele Robinson Obama’s great grand mother Rose Ella Cohen, the name strikes me as a name of a Jewish woman from Russia…. It actually was not uncommon in those days for Jewish immigrant women from Russia to marry African American man, these Jewish women were not raised with any prejudice against African American men and also were persecuted.  I want to know, if Harry Bounel was related to her. He was born in 1890. She was born in 1893-1896. Very close in age, he could be her cousin. From what I understand Harry Bounel never married. In this case the only family, who would be his next of kin,  who would  be Robinson family.

Another weird coincidense. We see Bounel residing in CT in 1910. The Social Security [number] was issued in 1977 in CT. He was 87 at that time. There was a hospital next to Newton [sic]. It was a Newtown psychiatric hospital, where some elderly without family resided their last days. The hospital later was renamed to Fairfield state hospital. This is where the bodies of the Sandy Hook victims were taken for autopsy.

Dr. Taitz received the letter below from a reader:

I’m in my 60’s and grew up in Bridgeport CT until 1961. When I was a kid in the 50’s, we used to joke that if you’re bad you’ll be sent to the “Newtown nut house”, a psychiatric hospital in Newtown that was just next to Danbury. […] You had surmised that the identity [Obama’s Connecticut SSN] was taken from someone at a local Danbury NURSING HOME. The official name of the “Newtown nut house” was the FAIRFIELD STATE HOSPITAL. (renamed Fairfield Hills Hospital). Mentally ill patients who had died were buried on site.

Dr. Taitz found that in 1976-1977, when new SSN laws were adopted, elderly individuals like Harrison Bounel needed to get a SSN in order to get Medicare benefits. “When people were elderly or patients in the psychiatric hospital, the applications were filled out by the hospital employees,” that is, personnel at Fairfield State Hospital probably helped Bounel to fill out his application for a SSN.

According to Wikipedia, Michele Obama’s great great grandfather Jim Robinson’s second wife was Rose Ella Cohen.

A sharp-eyed reader of Taitz’s blog named Marshman noted that in the 1940 Census, right beneath the entry for Harry Bounel was Sam Cohen (line 49), which meant the two men lived next door. Bounel was identified as a “lodger” while Cohen was a “head” of household. Was Rose Ella Cohen a daughter of Sam Cohen?

closeup of 1940 Census

There you have it:

The original owner of Obama’s stolen Connecticut-issued Social Security number was Harrison J. Bounel, an immigrant from Russia who was born in 1890, who seemed to have had some connection with a Jewish woman named Rose Ella Cohen, who was the second wife of the great great grandfather of Michelle Obama. This same Bounel, whose Social Security number is one of Barack Obama’s many SSNs, was institutionalized in and probably died in the Fairfield State Hospital, a now-abandoned psychiatric hospital in Newtown, Connecticut which was closed down in 1995. The same Newtown, CT, where on Dec. 14, 2012, an alleged lone gunman named Adam Lanza allegedly shot to death 20 children and 6 adults in the Sandy Hook Elementary School — a massacre that every available evidence and sound reasoning point to it being a gigantic hoax. (See our “Sandy Hook Massacre” page for links to all the posts we’ve published on this hoax.)

What coincidences!!!

Here are 2 pictures of Fairfield State Psychiatric Hospital taken by citizen journalist “Barry” in his recent visit to Newtown. Barry said Newtown has a spooky ghost-town quality, with many abandoned buildings like Fairfield. Read his account here.

The weirdness doesn’t end. Stephen Baldwin writes:

Nevertheless, all this mystery surrounding Obama appears to be a generational thing. Researchers have discovered nearly a dozen aliases, at least two different Social Security numbers, and upwards of over 99 separate addresses for [Stanley] Ann Dunham, his mother. […]

The lack of documents regarding Obama also extends to his mother and to his [maternal] grandparents [Stanley and Madelyn Dunham]. Indeed, researchers have been unable to find marriage licenses for his mother’s two marriages, assuming she was ever legally married. Ditto goes for the marriage license for Ann’s parents. They cannot find birth certificates for her, her parents, or for even for her grandparents. Even more so, despite Obama’s boast of his grandfather’s military service, there’s no record of that either. For reasons no one knows, much of Obama’s life, his mother’s life and his grandparent’s life has been erased from the records as if they never existed.

President X.

That’s who fraudulently occupies The Office Of The United States President.

“President X” – not just because his so-called life ‘narrative’ teems with deceit, obfuscation, manipulation, lies, contradictions, fake people, composite characters, contrived vignettes, and phony relationships. Not to mention his utterly fake family photos. Or his forged and fraudulent identity documents.

“President X” doesn’t simply stem from the fact that there is not [and never was] a “Barack Hussein Obama II” as presented to America.

He isn’t “President X” solely because his official life ‘narrative’ glaringly omits the actual core members of his biological family.

First and foremost, aka Barack Hussein Obama II is President X for this compelling reason:

Did Putin really say that about Obama?

You might have seen blogs that claim Vladimir Putin said this about Obama:

“Negotiating with Obama is like playing chess with a pigeon. The pigeon knocks over all the pieces, shits on the board, and then struts around like it won the game.”

Although Snopes says Putin didn’t say that, the quote attributed to Putin has gained currency because it so perfectly describes the POS.

However what the pic below says about Putin vs. Obama is true:

Putin vs, Obama

Vladimir Putin has said his mother, Maria Ivanovna Putina (1911–1998), a factory worker, was a devout Eastern Orthodox Christian and had young Vlad secretly baptized into that church because the Soviet Union was an officially atheistic state. Reportedly, the Eastern Orthodox Church asked Putin to protect Christians worldwide, and he has agreed. Russia’s support of Bashar al-Assad’s regime in Syria is said to be due to Putin’s concern that the Christian minority in that country will be persecuted if Assad is toppled. (Source)

The pornographic photos of a teenaged Stanley Ann Dunham, a lifelong atheist, are believed to have been taken in Barry’s childhood communist mentor Frank Marshall Davis’ home in Honolulu. Read more about it, including a video, at Gateway Pundit.

Below left is a pic of Ann Dunham as a child; on the right is the woman in the porn photos. Note the similarity in the upper teeth.

British Intelligence: Obama born in Kenya; CIA’s DNA test shows Dunhams not his grandparents

Michael Shrimpton is a British barrister (attorney), an adviser to British intelligence, and a serious person.

He also is a contributing columnist for the blog, Veterans Today. This is his biographical sketch on Veterans Today:

Michael Shrimpton

Shrimpton has his own blog, The Shrimpton Report. His email address is michael@mshrimpton.co.uk. And Wikipedia used to have an entry on him (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Michael_Shrimpton), but if you go to that URL, you’ll get the messsage: “This page has been deleted”.

After you’ve read this post, you’ll know why Wikipedia scrubbed its page on Michael Shrimpton.

Shrimpton was a speaker at a forum, date unknown, but probably sometime in 2008 (more on this later). Beginning at the 1:42 mark of the video below, Shrimpton dropped a bombshell about Obama.

Shrimpton made the following startling claims:

  1. Although Barack Hussein Obama (BHO) is said to have been born on August 4, 1961, he actually was born in 1960.
  2. Obama’s alleged mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, was not pregnant in July 1961.
  3. Although BHO is said to have been born in Honolulu, Hawaii, he actually was born in Mombasa, Kenya, which was then British territory, which means British intelligence has his records.
  4. The C.I.A. surreptiously took a DNA sample of Obama at a fundraising dinner and ran a test, but could not match Obama’s DNA with his [maternal] grandparents, the Dunhams.
  5. Former New York governor and GOP presidential aspirant Rudy Giuliani told Shrimpton at a recent lunch that he (Giuliani) knows all about this. Giuliani had hoped he would be the GOP presidential candidate and he’d then use the information against the Democrats.
  6. The Clintons (Bill and Hillary) also know about this.

For the rest of the 1½ hour video, Shrimpton talked about British politics and the European Union. However, at the 1:09:30 mark, a man in the audience asked Shrimpton a question about Obama and Kenya. In his response, beginning at about the 1:11:55 mark, Shrimpton alluded to the 2008 U.S. presidential campaign as if it was ongoing as he spoke, which suggests that the forum took place in 2008. Shrimpton also made these additional claims:

  1. He believes, given the above British intelligence on the year (1960, not 1961) and place (Kenya, not USA) of Obama’s birth, Obama would “soon be pressured into withdrawing” from the presidential race. With the benefit of hindsight, we of course know that didn’t happen.
  2. Senator John Edwards also knows because Shrimpton had briefed him.
  3. Former CIA director (under Bill Clinton) also knows. Shrimpton does not name him. Clinton had 3 successive CIA directors: James Woolsey, John Deutsch, and George Tenet.
  4. The Kenyan government, of course, knows.
  5. The UK newspaper Daily Telegraph also knows.
  6. The Honolulu press is aware that Obama’s birth records in Honolulu’s Queens Medical Center are fake. The Honolulu Advertiser knows this.
  7. Sen. John McCain knows.
  8. British Intelligence knows because MI5 got the Nairobi Special Intelligence files when Kenya became independent.
  9. Kofi Annan, Secretary General of the United Nations from 1997 to 2006, also knows.
  10. Shrimpton also said something very strange — that Obama’s half-sister is actually his full sister, and that the sister is “missing.” (The only “half sister” of Obama about whom we are told is Maya Soetoro-Ng, the daughter of Stanley Ann Dunham and her Indonesian husband, Lolo Soetoro.)

IN OTHER WORDS, JUST ABOUT EVERY FRIGGING POLITICIAN IN THE UNITED STATES AND THE WORLD KNOWS. AND EVERY FRIGGING ONE OF THEM HAS BEEN LYING TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. EVEN WORSE, THEY MOCK AND DEMONIZE US, CALLING US CRAZY CONSPIRACY “BIRTHERS”.

Obama has yet another name that’s connected to a dead Hawaiian official

The mystery man in the White House has multiple Social Security numbers (including one issued by Connecticut) and names, including:

  1. Barack Hussein Obama
  2. Barack Obama
  3. Barry Obama
  4. Barry Soetoro
  5. Steven Dunham (Dunham is his maternal grandparents’ surname)
  6. Barack Hussein Soebarkah

The 6th name, Barack Hussein Soebarkah, was the name that Barry’s mom, Stanley Ann Dunham Obama Soetoro, gave for her son in her 1968 application to extend her 1965 passport (now destroyed) for an additional two years.

Intrigued by the last name “Soebarkah,” Dr. Jason Kissner, an associate professor of criminology at California State University, Fresno, undertook some research and uncovered a fascinating link between Obama’s mom and Loretta Fuddy. The two women were both members of the Subud religious cult, which was founded by an Indonesian named Muhammad Subuh Sumohadiwidjojo.

Fuddy, as the director of the State of Hawaii’s Department of Health, had signed off on Obama’s alleged birth certificate when he, with great fanfare on April 27, 2011, released an image of his long-form birth certificate. Since its release, numerous documents experts have determined the certificate to be a computer-generated fake.

Fuddy was the only person to die in a small plane crash off the coast of Molokai, Hawaii, on December 12, 2013.

Stanley Ann Dunham Soetoro & Loretta Fuddyl to r: Obama’s mother; Loretta Fuddy

Barack Hussein Soebarkah?

By  Jason Kissner for the American Thinker, Jan. 22, 2014

One of the unexplained mysteries in the scanty documentation of the early life of the 44th President of the United States is the appearance of the name Soebarkah as his last name on an official document filled out by his mother.

In a recent contribution to American Thinker, Nick Chase offers very persuasive evidence that the long-form birth certificate released by Obama is a forgery.

While in the midst of developing an argument supporting the idea that Obama was adopted by the Indonesian Lolo Soetoro, Chase states:

Finally, we have Stanley Ann Soetoro’s 1968 application to extend her 1965 passport (now destroyed) for an additional two years, as shown in Figure PPA.

On the second page of the application, Ann moved to exclude her son Barack Hussein Obama (Soebarkah) from her passport, but the item has been crossed out — perhaps on the advice of the consulate in Jakarta, as this would have left seven-year-old Barry passportless — so it didn’t happen.

The appendage “(Soebarkah)” has never been satisfactorily explained by anyone, and I certainly don’t know what “Soebarkah” means, but it does seem to indicate a name change or change in citizenship status for the boy. 

Clearly, just what constitutes “a satisfactory explanation” varies with respect to persons, subject matter, context, and so forth.

And yet, there is a very good — and simple — explanation for the seemingly random appearance of the sobriquet “Soebarkah” on Mother Soetoro’s passport application.

Believe it or not, the reason may be linked to one Loretta Fuddy.

Yes, that Loretta Fuddy — the Hawaii state health director who approved the release of Obama’s long-form birth certificate and who has apparently succumbed to a nasty case of post random plane crash induced arrhythmia.

Ann Soetoro and Loretta Fuddy appear to have one very odd thing in common: both have been linked to the Subud cult, which originated in, of all places, Indonesia and was founded by the Javanese Muslim Muhammed Subuh.

The smallish cult appears to have had, at least circa 2001 and according to this profile of sorts in the Honolulu Advertiser, 20,000 members worldwide.   Notice the picture of Deliana Fuddy, then “regional helper” and member of the faith?  Let’s return to her Subud status in a second.

Note also that the World Subud organization seems to have been based in, of all cities….wait for it…Chicago.  Indonesia…Chicago…Hawaii… three locales linked to Obama’s life.

Next, observe that the Advertiser article states that Subud was introduced to Hawai’i in the 1960s (more on this in the conclusion).

Now to Ann Soetoro.  She was linked to Subud by her biographer (and New York Times reporter) Janny Scott (Harvard ’77) in the book A Singular Woman: The Untold Story of Barack Obama’s Mother,” reviewed by the New York Times here.

Loretta Fuddy was more than merely a follower of Subud; she worked her way up the ranks and became chairwoman of Subud USA, based in Seattle from 2006 to 2008, and was known to Subud not merely as Loretta Fuddy, but as “Deliana” Loretta Fuddy.  In fact, you can see that in its headline, the official Subud “memorial” page drops “Loretta” and refers simply to “Deliana” Fuddy.

Ann Soetoro’s close association with members of the Subud cult will be documented below. But first, note in passing that of all the persons — Christian, Jew, Muslim, Buddhist, Atheist, Hindu, or you-name-it  —  that could have been installed as Director of the State Department of Health in Hawaii, Hawaii alighted on Fuddy — a leader of a small cult with roots in Indonesia and connections to Ann Soetoro — Obama’s mother.  Second, observe that Fuddy assumed the Director position in Hawaii in January 2011, just a few months before the release of Obama’s long form birth certificate.

Now to Ann Soetoro’s links with Subud and to a brief discussion of the Barry “Soebarkah” mystery associated with Ann Soetoro’s 1968 passport renewal application.

Read the following excerpt from SubudVoice in 2011 (and please note that I have italicized a couple of sentences to emphasize that the Subud “Staff Reporter” is drawing on material from Janny Scott’s biography of Ann Soetoro; they aren’t simply making an anonymous, empty assertion that can’t be substantiated.)

Obama’s mother and Subud

By Staff Reporter…

A Singular Woman: The Untold Story of Barack Obama’s Mother,a biography of the mother of US President Obama, Ann DunhamSutoro, contains several references to Subud. As is generally known Obama lived with his mother in Jakarta for some years…

Arianne (no second name) wrote to me to say, “Talked to Irin Poellot who is reading the book about Obama’s mother and has already run into several literal mentions of Subud!!! I remember the late Mansur Madeiros mentioning he knew her in Indonesia and he is mentioned in the book! I can’t help wondering if we will get inquiries about Subud since it is mentioned often in a book which probably will be widely read. It also is a delicious fact that our Subud sister, Ms Fuddy, just was appointed to her post in the Health Dept in Hawaii in time to be involved in the documentation of fact that Obama was born there.”

I wrote back asking for more specific information and Arianne replied, “Irin kindly supplied some quotes:In chapter 4 “Initiation in Java” the Subud members are quoted. And then (on page 116): “…she (Ann) was hired to start an English-language, business-communications department in one of the few private non profit management-training schools in the country.”

Ann “found a group of young Americans and Britons enrolled in an intensive course in Bahasa Indonesia, the national language, at the University of Indonesia recalled Irwan Holmes, (a member of the original group). She was looking for teachers. A half dozen of them accepted her invitation, many of them members of an international spiritual organization, Subud, with a residential compound in a suburb of Jakarta..”

And ……Mohammad Mansur Madeiros, a reclusive and scholarly Subud member from Fall River, Massachusetts, and Harvard, whom Ann hired as a teacher, had immersed himself so deeply in Javanese culture, language and religion that friends nicknamed him Mansur Java. When he died in 2007, friends recalled his preference for the company of ordinary Indonesians –street vendors and becak drivers — over that of other Subud members and expatriates.” 

But what might the Ann Soetoro, Deliana Fuddy, Subud links really have to do with the sobriquet Barry Soebarkah?

To help answer that, transport yourself backward in time and sit at the feet of the Indonesian Subud master Bapak circa 1963:

Question:1 Many people in Subud change their names. Is this necessary? Is it important? How does the change of a name affect us? Physically, spiritually or both?

Bapak: Brothers and sisters, whether it is necessary or not depends on what you want…. 

If changing one’s name for “spiritual reasons” was something frequently done by followers of Subud’s Bapak, and Stanley Ann Soetoro was in fact closely associated with Subud, it is reasonable to suppose that “Soebarkah” arose in the same way new names for others (like “Deliana” Loretta Fuddy?) associated with Subud did: as a matter of course depending on the case.

Readers might agree that the above is a quite reasonable account of the origin of Barry “Soebarkah.”

But there is something else.  The above biographical material bonds Ann Soetoro to Subud members via an English language, business communications department post.  According to the New York Times here, that would have been around 1970 or 1971.  However, the passport renewal application with the name “Soebarkah” dates to 1968.  This suggests that either the “Soebarkah” handle came from nowhere, or that matters are as we have discussed and that Ann Soetoro in fact came to Subud before 1970 — perhaps in Hawaii.

Clearly, we might want to recall that the above linked Honolulu Advertiser Subud profile indicates that Subud was introduced to Hawai’i in the 1960s.

In closing, the Ann Soetoro’s 1968 passport renewal application raises the spectre of  possible Obama birth certificate fraud yet again.  Have a look at page 2 of the document:

For a larger version, click here

“Sorebarkah” appears in the section labeled “Amend to Include (Exclude) Children.”

The name Barack Hussein Obama (Sorebarkah) is crossed out.

Nick Chase has concluded that this signifies that Ann Soetoro had improvidently decided to exclude Barack from her passport renewal.   Chase thinks that Soetoro changed her mind about exclusion after having been informed by the Consulate that doing so would leave Barack passportless.

But there is another possibility — one just as valid on its face.

What if Soetoro was trying to include Obama in the renewal, but she wasn’t able to produce a birth certificate, and the Subud name “Soebarkah” just didn’t do the trick? (hat tip Louise Hodges for the “inclusion” possibility; one can’t be certain why she did not link the inclusion possibility to Soebarkah).

That could  explain why the name Subud name “Soebarkah” appears nowhere else (that we are aware of anyway),

Of course, we might then have to wonder exactly how Obama did his traveling at certain points in time, but then perhaps Subud is, at least at times, more than a mere cult?

DC Board of Elections denies FOIA request on Barry Soetoro voter registration

nothing to see here1

A month ago, I did a post on the fascinating 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) had registered to vote as a Democrat in Washington, D.C. on October 15, 2012, 22 days before the pivotal November 6 elections. (See my post, here.)

That is most curious because, according to a media release from the District of Columbia Board of Elections and Ethics, the independent agency of the District government responsible for the administration of elections, ballot access and voter registration:

“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.”

“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, where the boy lived from ages 6 to 10. In 1971, Barry’s mom sent her 10-year-old boy back to Honolulu to live with her parents while she 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.

A week after I did that post on Soetoro’s D.C. voter registration, on July 27, 2013, I went back on the D.C. Board of Elections and Ethics website and repeated the search for “Barry Soetoro,” and discovered that Barry Soetoro’s voter registration had been scrubbed. This was the message I got:

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

That is again most curious because according to the D.C. Board:

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.”

You can read the D.C. Board’s media release here, or if it’s removed, here in FOTM’s archives.

So Arizona’s conservative paper Sonoran News filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, asking the D.C. Board for information on Soetoro’s voter registration. The request is denied. The reason given is that the matter is “the focus of an investigation into a specific alleged illegal act which could, if proved, result in civil or criminal sanctions.”

As reported by Sonoran News‘ Linda Bentley, August 21, 2013:

A few weeks ago, we published an article: “Voter fraud at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue?” exposing a voter registration under the name Barry Soetoro, the name President Barack Obama used while attending elementary school as a citizen of Indonesia, using the White House’s address.

It was also pointed out that both Obama and the First Lady are registered to vote in Chicago.

A Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request was submitted on July 22 to the District of Columbia 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.

Senior Staff Attorney Terri Stroud responded almost immediately to acknowledge the request and state she would respond to the request on before Aug. 12 by making the documents requested, or a legally segregable portion thereof, available or notify me of her determination not to make the requested document available.

Stroud responded on Aug. 12, as promised, denying my request.

She wrote, “I am writing to inform you that your request for a copy of a voter registration application submitted under the name “Barry Soetoro” is being denied pursuant to D.C. Official Code § 2-534(a)(3), as it is a record which is the focus of an investigation into a specific alleged illegal act which could, if proved, result in civil or criminal sanctions.

“With respect to the questions posed in your FOIA request concerning voter history and the Board’s process for verifying voter registrations submitted by mail and entered online, under the law, an agency ‘has no duty either to answer questions unrelated to document requests or to create documents.’ Zemansky v. United States Environmental Protection Agency, 767 F.2d 569, 574 (9th Cir. 1985). The law only requires the disclosure of nonexempt documents, not answers to interrogatories. See Di Viaio v. Kelley, 571 F.2d 538, 542-543 (10th Cir. 1978).

“Please be advised that if you deem this response to be a denial of your request, you have the right to appeal to the Mayor, or you may seek judicial review in the Superior Court, pursuant to D.C. Official Code § 2-537 and 3 D.C.M.R. § 2012.1. If you elect to appeal to the Mayor, your appeal should: 1) be in writing; 2) include a statement of the arguments, circumstances, or reasons in support of the information sought by your request, and; 3) include a copy of our written letter issued to you.”

[…] According to Stroud, the DCBEE will not explain its registration process because it is not a specific document even though the questions asked were indeed related to the document request.

It appears FOIA is being redefined by Stroud to pertain only to documents, not information.

If the DCBEE refuses to inform citizens about the voter registration process and whether or not fraudulently registered people have voted, it seems our electoral process can be easily hijacked without explanation or accountability.

Only time will tell if this investigation will be swept under the rug along with all the other “phony scandals” plaguing the Obama administration.

End of Bentley’s report.

H/t Obama Release Your Records

Please let Linda Bentley know you appreciate the work she’s doing. She can be reached at this email address: linda@sonorannews.com

This is the email I sent her. Feel free to copy and paste as yours!

Dear Ms. Bentley,

The media are so maligned these days, albeit justifiably in the case of Big Media, which is why I’m writing you to convey my appreciation and gratitude for the work you’re doing on the curious case of Barry Soetoro’s voter registration (and subsequent deletion) in the District of Columbia.

To my knowledge, you are the only member of the press actually looking into this.

I hope you will not be thwarted by the Board’s attorney Terri Stroud’s denial of Sonoran News’ FOIA request, and continue to pursue this matter.

Thank you,

___________

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:

Click image below to enlarge!Soetoro voter registration

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.
