Obama’s Origins, Revealed

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , — pprscribe @ 5:16 pm

Obama was actually born in Tasmania where he was abandoned by his parents and was left there to be raised in the wild by a pack of Tasmanian wolves . He was then kidnapped by Somali pirates who had been blown off course. When they got to the East African coast, he jumped ship and ended up in Kenya where he was adopted by a white American mother and a black African father who were on a sight-seeing tour and big game safari. They then moved to Hawaii. Thinking that Barack might someday run for president, his adoptive parents decided it would be a prudent idea to fake his citizenship. They paid off local officials in Hawaii and got the newspaper in Honolulu to go into its old files (in the newspaper business these are called the “morgue’) and place a fake birth announcement in the paper. The rest is history. You could look it up. (Source: commenter “Big Easy,” July 28, 2009 at 10:18 AM)
