Did Barack Obama Support The Murder Of Christians In Kenya By Raila Odinga Supporters?

Posted by Job on October 14, 2008

HYMAN: Obama’s Kenya ghosts

About 50 parishioners were locked into the Assemblies of God church before it was set ablaze. They were mostly women and children. Those who tried to flee were hacked to death by machete-wielding members of a mob numbering 2,000.

The 2008 New Year Day atrocity in the Kenyan village Eldoret, about 185 miles northwest of Nairobi, had all the markings of the Rwanda genocide of a decade earlier.

By mid-February 2008, more than 1,500 Kenyans were killed. Many were slain by machete-armed attackers. More than 500,000 were displaced by the religious strife. Villages lay in ruin. Many of the atrocities were perpetrated by Muslims against Christians.

The violence was led by supporters of Raila Odinga, the opposition leader who lost the Dec. 27, 2007, presidential election by more than 230,000 votes. Odinga supporters began the genocide hours after the final election results were announced Dec. 30. Mr. Odinga was a member of Parliament representing an area in western Kenya, heavily populated by the Luo tribe, and the birthplace of Barack Obama‘s father.

Mr. Odinga had the backing of Kenya’s Muslim community heading into the election. For months he denied any ties to Muslim leaders, but fell silent when Sheik Abdullahi Abdi, chairman of the National Muslim Leaders Forum, appeared on Kenya television displaying a memorandum of understanding signed on Aug. 29, 2007, by Mr. Odinga and the Muslim leader. Mr. Odinga then denied his denials.

The details of the MOU were shocking. In return for Muslim backing, Mr. Odinga promised to impose a number of measures favored by Muslims if he were elected president. Among these were recognition of “Islam as the only true religion,” Islamic leaders would have an “oversight role to monitor activities of ALL other religions [emphasis in original],” installation of Shariah courts in every jurisdiction, a ban on Christian preaching, replacement of the police commissioner who “allowed himself to be used by heathens and Zionists,” adoption of a women’s dress code, and bans on alcohol and pork.

This was not Mr. Odinga’s first brush with notoriety. Like his father, Jaramogi Oginga Odinga, the main opposition leader in the 1960s and 1970s, Raila Odinga is a Marxist He graduated from East Germany’s Magdeburg University in 1970 on a scholarship provided by the East German government. He named his oldest son after Fidel Castro.

Raila Odinga was implicated in the bloody coup attempt in 1982 against then-President Daniel Arap Moi, a close ally of the United States. Kenya has been one of the most stable democracies in Africa since the 1960s. The ethnic cleansing earlier this year was the worst violence in Kenya since that 1982 coup attempt.

Mr. Odinga spent eight years in prison. At the time, he denied guilt but later detailed he was a coup leader in his 2006 biography. Statue of limitations precluded further prosecution when the biography appeared.

Initially, Mr. Odinga was not the favored opposition candidate to stand in the 2007 election against President Mwai Kibaki, who was seeking his second term. However, he received a tremendous boost when Sen. Barack Obama arrived in Kenya in August 2006 to campaign on his behalf. Mr. Obama denies that supporting Mr. Odinga was the intention of his trip, but his actions and local media reports tell otherwise.

Mr. Odinga and Mr. Obama were nearly inseparable throughout Mr. Obama’s six-day stay. The two traveled together throughout Kenya and Mr. Obama spoke on behalf of Mr. Odinga at numerous rallies. In contrast, Mr. Obama had only criticism for Kibaki. He lashed out against the Kenyan government shortly after meeting with the president on Aug. 25. “The [Kenyan] people have to suffer over corruption perpetrated by government officials,” Mr. Obama announced.

“Kenyans are now yearning for change,” he declared. The intent of Mr. Obama’s remarks and actions was transparent to Kenyans – he was firmly behind Mr. Odinga.

Mr. Odinga and Mr. Obama had met several times before the 2006 trip. Reports indicate Mr. Odinga visited Mr. Obama during trips to the U.S. in 2004, 2005 and 2006. Mr. Obama sent his foreign policy adviser Mark Lippert to Kenya in early 2006 to coordinate his summer visit. Mr. Obama’s August trip coincided with strategizing by Orange Democratic Movement leaders to defeat Mr. Kibaki in the upcoming elections. Mr. Odinga represented the ODM ticket in the presidential race.

Mr. Odinga and Mr. Obama’s father were both from the Luo community, the second-largest tribe in Kenya, but their ties run much deeper. Mr. Odinga told a stunned BBC Radio interviewer the reason why he and Mr. Obama were staying in near daily telephone contact was because they were cousins. In a Jan. 8, 2008, interview, Mr. Odinga said Mr. Obama had called him twice the day before while campaigning in the New Hampshire primary before adding, “Barack Obama’s father is my maternal uncle.”

President Kibaki requested a meeting of all opposition leaders in early January in an effort to quell the violence. All agreed to attend except Mr. Odinga. A month later, Mr. Kibaki offered Mr. Odinga the role of prime minister, the de facto No. 2 in the Kenyan government, in return for an end to the attacks. Mr. Odinga was sworn in on April 17, 2008.

Mr. Obama’s judgment is seriously called into question when he backs an official with troubling ties to Muslim extremists and whose supporters practice ethnic cleansing and genocide. It was Islamic extremists in Kenya who bombed the U.S. Embassy in 1998, killing more than 200 and injuring thousands. None of this has dissuaded Mr. Obama from maintaining disturbing loyalties.

Has Anyone Paid Any Attention To The Huge Sums Of Money Barack HUSSEIN Obama Has At His Disposal?

Posted by Job on October 11, 2008

I do not know what is more incredible: Barack Obama’s obscene amount of cash, or how the media absolutely refuses to talk about it. Let me put this in a bit of perspective. I remember back in 1996, the media observers were convinced that Phil Gramm was going to be a major factor in the GOP primary and perhaps even win the nomination because he had raised $16 million dollars. Fast forward to 2004, and when George W. Bush used “bundling” and “pioneers” to raise about $200 million, it was a huge story, and people on both sides pointed out how it meant that the system was in need of reform. Well now, at last check, Barack Obama had raised $458 million dollars and counting! In a bad economy!

There is more. First, there are allegations that Obama has not reported all of his donations, or that he has a habit of making the donations appear much smaller than they actually are. In other words, $458 million is all that he has reported. There are a lot of reasons to believe that the true figure is much higher.

Second, and this is something that not even the Republican and conservative media that is ALLEGEDLY so against Obama is talking much about: there is also much reason to believe that a good bit of Obama’s money is coming from overseas. The result: Obama is able to have a 3 to 1 television advantage over McCain in battleground states, be on the air in more states period than McCain, have an almost unspeakable advantage in funding get out the vote activities, and to buy a 30 minute commercial on network television to air 6 days before the election.

Again, I have real doubts that the $458 million figure is accurate. Why? Because Hillary Clinton spent $150 million and was broke by Super Tuesday way back in early February. And this was with Clinton focusing primarily on television and ignoring the get out the vote efforts that Obama has dwarfed any previous records by several magnitudes. So how on earth could the $300 million difference have paid for Obama’s activities since Super Tuesday (by which time he had spent at least $100 million himself) until now and still leave him with the $100 million that it is going to take to air his 30 minute commercial? That is why I believe that the $458 million has to be more like $700 million. 

So the question is: where is all this money coming from? The media is plying the Obama campaign line that it is grandmothers charging up their credit cards with $10 contributions such as listed in that first story above, but come on. Is it wealthy individuals overseas? Is it foreign governments even? Like, maybe, Raila Odinga’s regime, Barack Obama’s Kenyan cousin? Or some even more troubling financial channels?

That was precisely the type of thing that I was hoping that Jerome Corsi would dig up. But it being almost a week since the fellow was expelled from Kenya with no real news since then, I wonder if this story will remain a mystery.

Kenya to deport Obama critic Swift Boat Veteran Jerome Corsi

Posted by Job on October 7, 2008

At first I thought (hoped) that Corsi was in Kenya doing some investigating into Obama’s background, a task that the media refuses to take upon itself. (For instance, is Barack Obama’s real name Barry Sotero? And was Barack Obama’s father Kenyan, did his family migrate to Kenya from Arabia as some claim?) Regrettably, it just looks like he was seeking publicity for himself to sell his book. What a shame. It appears that Corsi is no different from the rest.

The Richard Cohen Farrakhan Thing On Barack HUSSEIN Obama Is Having Its Intended Effect

Posted by Job on January 23, 2008

Please reference Big Trouble For Barack HUSSEIN Obama Based On His Church which was based on this Richard Cohen Washington Post column. Jewish voters are becoming wary of the fellow. See article below, especially the discussion board at bottom (including an angle on some Christian killer fellow named Raila Odinga of Kenya that is allegedly Obama’s cousin; have to check it out!). So, the anti – Hussein Obama coalition includes feminists, Hispanics, and Jews. This could case a real fragmentation of the left. In any event, this is still another example of how not to be conformed by the ways of the world. So many white evangelical Christians are going for Mike Huckabee and Mormon Mitt Romney, so many black Christians are going for Barack HUSSEIN Obama and Hillary Clinton. All the more reason why those of us of all races, nationalities, tribes, tongues, socioeconomic backgrounds, etc. that are on the Lord’s side need to stand up.

Big Trouble For Barack HUSSEIN Obama Based On His Church?

Posted by Job on January 16, 2008

Now a few months back when Trinity Church of Christ was being derided for being a black nationalist liberation theology outfit that does not preach the true Jesus Christ, the left out of their hatred for Jesus Christ rushed to condemn Tucker Carlson and the other attackers. As a matter of fact, I participated in a lively “discussion” on that issue the day that I started this weblog. But now that Hillary Clinton fans see their ice queen’s march to the presidency threatened by this Negro usurper, the white left begins to pull from the same bag of racist parlor tricks as does conservatives.

Witness this article from Richard Cohen of the Washington Post. Now Cohen is actually an atheist, but he pretends to be Jewish when it is time to launch political attacks at his enemies by associating them with anti – Semitism. Cohen completely ignores the huge Jew and Israel hating contingent among Hillary Clinton supporters to demand that Obama disavow his church because its magazine gave an award to Louis Farrakhan. Now Trinity United Church of Christ has been doing similar things for years. As a matter of fact, it is impossible for the leading black liberation theology church in Chicago, where Farrakhan has his home base, not to have praised Farrakhan and similar black nationalists. If Cohen didn’t care about it when Obama was elected to Senate and becoming a much – needed celebrity for the Democratic Party the past four years, he certainly doesn’t care about it now. Just like he didn’t care about the ties that Congressional Black Caucus and NAACP leader Kwiese Mfume had with the Nation of Islam. Mfume, you see, wasn’t running against Bill Clinton’s wife.

Of course, the goal of this is to put Obama in a no – win situation. First of all, associating Barack HUSSEIN Obama with the “black Muslim” radical Farrakhan reminds white voters of things like Barack HUSSEIN Obama having an African Muslim father (and stepfather) and spending a few years in a Muslim school in Indonesia. Now the Nation of Islam is every bit the pseudo – Islam as Trinity United is pseudo – Christianity, but Cohen (and the Clintons) are banking on your typical Nevada, South Carolina, Florida, etc. white primary voter not knowing this.

Second, suppose Obama chooses not to respond. The line then becomes that JUST MAYBE Obama loves Farrakhan and hates Jews. That brings the fact that Obama, for a host of legitimate reasons that I will not get into, is known to be more sympathetic to the Palestinians and less sympathetic to Israel than most prominent politicians from the backburner to the forefront. Now this has not been a major issue so far primarily because Cohen and the rest of the left have been far more willing to countenance anti – Israel and pro – Palestinian voices than in the past because of spite against the pro – Israel Republican evangelical Christians. (More than a few Jewish leaders, and not all of them liberal, have even found backing a Palestinian state and risking the almost certain destruction of Israel as a result preferable to having to thank evangelical Christians for defending Israel.) This makes support for Israel a prominent political consideration in the Democratic Party that is less than two years removed from running off Joe Lieberman again. The thing is that even if Barack HUSSEIN Obama does what is required of him, Jews will have to think long and hard about whether to support the “risky unknown unproven black guy from Chicago with the African Muslim name” or “stick with the safe proven fighter for Israel and Jewish interests Hillary Clinton.” Please recall: a major hindrance with Jews in choosing between black and white candidates is the fear that whenever black interests and Jewish interests collide, that the black elected official will side with his own people. Needless to say, no threat of that exists if the elected official is Jewish or Caucasian Gentile. And that was the point of Cohen’s rehashing the “black – Jewish coalition” during the civil rights era, to the point of stating rather hyperbolically “Martin Luther King, Jr. always stood up against anti – Semitism and for Israel” and the utterly ridiculous charge “Obama’s failing to speak out would be like stomping on Goodman and Schwerner’s graves!” Being a well educated black man with strong ties to the civil rights community, Obama needs no history lesson from Cohen, and Cohen knows this. Instead, its purpose was to send a clear message to Jewish Democrats – of which there are not a few especially in the key February 5th Florida primary that will basically make or break Hillary Clinton’s campaign as Nevada is expected to be inconclusive, she is toast in South Carolina and Georgia, and she has been forced to use up her best ammunition (crying, attacks on Obama’s SUPERIOR qualifications) – that the appropriate thing to do is to vigorously support and promote Clinton regardless of what Obama does, and that they can do so without guilt and with demands that there be no recriminations from the black community and demand that our leadership lie down and take its place behind every other coalition on the left (labor, feminists, Jews, environmentalists, homosexuals, atheists) just like always. Well consider that when a lot of prominent Jews such as Lieberman (and Cohen) started opposing affirmative action because blacks were taking too many college spots away from Jews and when they joined the right wing hatemongers to defend Jewish Ivy League student Eden Jacobowitz’s yelling “hey you black water buffalo, if you want to act like animals you should go to the zoo!” at black black students for the “crime” of interrupting his studying, the past sacrifices of those like Goodman and Schwerner were invoked to deal with any guilt over those issues as well.

Third, suppose Obama disavows his church, Farrakhan, or both. First of all, his doing so will not prevent Jewish political leaders from backing Hillary Clinton. Second, and almost as important, it keeps the race issue alive, and that always benefits Hillary Clinton. Doing it in a way that keeps Hillary Clinton out of the picture so that she cannot be accused of race baiting or benefitting from the practice? Even better! And in a manner that will allow the media – especially the many in the media (and have ready access to it) that are supporting Hillary Clinton, like Gloria Steinem, who made the ridiculous claim that wealthy white women like her have had it harder than black men, and got away with it because of black leaders so fear crossing swords with white feminists because they know who will win that battle in the leftist coalition EVERY SINGLE TIME to start the “is Barack Obama black enough?” and to start sticking a microphone in the face of every black primary voter in South Carolina asking “Is Barack Obama a sellout for denouncing the man who led the Million Man March?”

Anything that takes the attention away from the fact that electing Hillary Clinton would mean continuing the past 20 years of this country being governed by utterly corrupt members of the same two families that are actually great friends (please note that Bill Clinton did not prosecute George H. W. Bush over Iran – Contra and that George W. Bush did not prosecute Bill Clinton over Chinagate … if Hillary Clinton gets elected do not think that she will go after George W. Bush over his scandals) and support basically the same policies (click here to read “The Bush-Clinton Dynasty by Chuck Baldwin) is good for Hillary Clinton. So is not talking about how not only did she vote for the Iraq War, but her husband used the same rationale as did George W. Bush – weapons of mass destruction – for bombing Iraq during his impeachment hearings. So is not talking about how she supports the death penalty, three strikes laws, and welfare reform. Or how “the great Clinton economy” was nothing more than companies ripping off hundreds of billions of dollars – much of it retirement fund money – through the stock market on Pets.com schemes, and how the Enron scandal (and remember Enron executives contributed heavily to the Clintons!) actually began during the Clinton administration, and how the current mortgage crisis was created by lenders desperate to recover the capital that they lost when the dot.com bubble (that the Clinton administration encouraged every step of the way and even took credit for helping create) burst. And no, it is not talking about how under the Clinton the September 11th hijackers all entered the country and did their training all while our huge national security apparatus was monitoring them. That was why the attacks were attributed to Al Qaeda almost immediately, long before they took responsibility for them.

This is not to say that Obama would be any better on these or other issues. But these issues are compelling reasons to vote AGAINST Hillary Clinton. Everyone knows that Hillary Clinton will govern just as her husband did. As a matter of fact, she has actually used that fact as a major part of her platform (refusing to acknowledge that her husband is not nearly as popular as is portrayed, with most of his “popularity” due to dislike of the other side). Instead, her message has been “even though I am going to continue the same evil policies that have been disastrous for the country in every way as have my husband and both Bushes since 1988, my being the first female president would make it all different and better!”

The lesson for Christians in this incident is clear: do not be conformed to the world or the ways in it. Else you will be party to its wickedness.

Corrupt False Preachers On The Rise In Kenya: Bibles Needed To Combat This

Posted by Job on November 8, 2007

bibleleague.org/news/newsrel/newsrelkenyachurches.php

CHICAGO—Religious groups in Kenya line up by the thousands to seek legal recognition as churches. But as the number of corrupt African preachers increases, Christian leaders are warning the public of those using the Gospel for personal financial gains.

“Groups masquerading as churches thrive in Kenya,” said Dr. Mwaya Kitavi, Bible League’s associate director of Africa ministry, “and the need for Bible-based churches is as great as ever. Many Kenyans are unable to distinguish genuine religious organizations from ‘big business’ under the guise of evangelism.”

For some, establishing a church in Kenya means cashing in on freely flowing money, and many take advantage of the unsuspecting public. But in the midst of this deceptive arena, Bible League remains a constant source of spreading God’s Word throughout Kenya.

“Bible League’s ministry in Kenya began more than 20 years ago, and continues to flourish,” added Kitavi. “By coming alongside Kenyan churches, and equipping their leaders with Scriptures and training, we see first-hand the love of Jesus shining through. This is what Kenya really needs—churches founded on biblical truths and the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”

Jackson Muia, a Christian in the Makueni South region of Kenya, envisioned launching a church. Following his Bible League training and Bible provision, churches mushroomed in every village of this region. The power of the Gospel transformed the community. “People have joined the church in big numbers and left behind their pagan ways of life,” said Muia. Muia is one of many Kenyans with a passion for the lost and a heart for their people.

More than 85,000 Kenyans—last year alone—completed Bible studies through Bible League ministry. Christians grounded in God’s Word are determined to unravel Kenya’s hovering blanket of deception.
