One of the big “media circus” events is the supposed tape of Michelle Obama using the term “whitey” is back. The “Fight the Smears” website even addresses this “smear” stating:
“… there is no video. The entire thing was completely fabricated by people like [Rush] Limbaugh and [Roger] Stone who want to take Michelle and Barack down. In fact, neither Michelle nor Barack has ever said anything remotely like the stuff Limbaugh, Stone, and the rest made up for their fantasy tape.
This is the worst, most hateful kind of smear there is.”
Well, there is a group called the “African Press International (API)” who claims to have a copy of this tape. They claim they have been shut down three times, “leaving us with no Internet site to release information in connection with the tape.”
“Those who were against the release went a long way to block us, but now it is our turn to be the masters. We are finalising our release plan of the tape and the delivering of Imam’s documents to the authorities.”
They claim they are planning on releasing the tape before Thanksgiving, and they are “closing all the loopholes so that the tape may come out before or by thanksgiving day if nothing dramatic takes place.”
The plan is to arranging a link to their new website away from their WordPress site, so that all registered readers may link in and listen to the tape a few hours before the public airing by two media broadcasting outlets, one in the US and the other in Canada.
According to the website “Stop the ACLU” the transcript of the speech where Michelle Obama allegedly uses the word “whitey” is:
“Once again, the white man keeps us down. What’s up with Whitey? Why’d he attack Iraq? Why’d he let Katrina happen? Why’d he leave millions of children behind. This is the legacy the white man gives us.”
Finding any previous posts on the API site has proven to be a little challenging. Any posts relating to this topic seem to have disappeared, including the cache versions. On a post dated November 22, 2008 API stated they have
“gone through all articles published between the 15th of October and the 18th of November when the Michelle Obama story broke out and realised that there were some inappropriate comments that passed through our moderation system…” “Due to this factor, API has taken a decision to pull out temporarily all the articles with such comments and will deleted all comments before releasing back the articles”
I did however find one cached version regarding API in negotiation with FOX News on the release of the tape, dated October 21, 2008 hoping to release the tape before November 4th, 2008.
“The important thing we want the readers to know is how the tapes will be handled once it finally leaves API’s custody. API has confidence in FOX NEWS and will allow them to decide whether the tapes will be aired in full, edited or unedited. Once the tapes are released to FOX NEWS as per agreement that will be arrived at between the parties, API believes that FOX NEWS is competent enough to decide on how to proceed in handling the tapes because – better than us in API – they know what is best for the American listeners.
In another 404 post titled “Obama’s Campaign Manager Offers $3 Million to API In Connection With Michelle Obama Tape”, which I happened to have found a “Snap Shots” of on a different site, API claims they were offered $3 million for the tape.
“Six hours after the release of information by API on the planned broadcast by Fox News Network of the Michelle Obama tape, in accordance with an agreement that has been reached between API and Fox News Network, API was contacted by Obama’s Campaign Manager.
Those who are close to the democratic presidential candidate must be desperate to win the elections no matter what, otherwise they would not have taken such bold step to contact API with an offer of a bribe in order to stop the airing of the tape.
Obama’s campaign manager contacted API by telephone and email offering 3 million US dollars followed with a request to API to cancel the deal with Fox News Network.
As for the Imam documents, this one I’m not sure of. The title of the post includes “and the Imam’s birth document on Mr. Obama.” I did a quick search for “imam obama birth” on “the Google”, and the first web site that comes up is for API. However, the link goes to a 404 page, and clicking on the cache link shows no results.
What I did find however, was a reference to the API site stating, “A Mombasa Mosque Imam agrees to release Barack Obama’s documents of birth.”
We have stated earlier that Barack Obama was born in Mombasa, Kenya.
A confirmation to the effect will now be forthcoming. A Mombasa Mosque Imam has decided to release documents of birth that will indicate Barack Obama was born in Mombasa, given his middle name on the day he was born and blessed by the Imam of the day.
It is also stated that Mombasa Imam arrived in the UK seeking asylum because:
The man will join relatives in the UK because his life will be in danger if he were to return to Kenya after removing the documents from the Mosque’s archives and taking them out of the country.
The Imam is the grandson of the late Imam who blessed Barack Obama when he was born in Mombasa on the 4th of August 1961.
If the API really does have a copy of the whitey video tape, and proof that Obama wasn’t legally born in the United States, things might get ugly for a few days…… but I don’t think they have it, especially since they have been playing this record over and over since early Summer, according to some comments on API’s site.
Let see if they can dish out what they claim, or is this another “Oh no, not again” moments that never pan out with false claims. Because seriously, if you have a tape and documents of such “evidence” you don’t need a news media to release the information. All you need is “the Internezs”. And if you really have an offer of $3 million from the Obama Camp, again via email, you don’t need a media outlet to release the information. You just need “the Internezs”. If you get shut down, you just post it somewhere else again… and again.. and again.
Personally, I think the claim by the API to have this information is bogus. This story as of having this information doesn’t pass the “sniff” test. As I have said many times before about things…. Time will answer the question as to whether API actually has this information. And ultimately, to end all the scuttlebut and rumors, all Obama needs to do is release his vault copy of his birth certificate, which he refuses to do. Makes one wonder exactly why.
As for whether Michelle ever said something to the effect of “whitey”? Yea, I do, simply based upon her Princeton Senior College Thesis, Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4[PDF] titled “Princeton-Educated Blacks and the Black Community", which was on racial divide, and was unavailable until November 5, 2008 via Princeton however, the Obama campaign did give a copy of the thesis to Politico.
As for Obama not being a legal US natural born citizen…. lets see how Clarence Thomas handles things. Tis not nice to step on toes on the way up regarding a Supreme Court Judge, cause you never know how hard the foot that has those toes might end up kicking your butt. To make a long story short, Obama said he would have never nominated Thomas for Supreme Court Judge. There is a lawsuit in NJ regarding releasing Obama’s birth certificate (not the certificate of live birth). Donofrio, the plaintiff, presented the case has been shot down several times and appealed the case. He took the caset to Thomas who then decided to put it on the court docket for a conference for December 5th. If four of the nine judges decide to hear the case, then full oral arguments will be scheduled.
