On December 16, 2013 an obot who goes by the signature smrstrauss wrote three statement replies to the posting of the essay response to Truthful Commentary concerning some responses toAn Open Letter toObama Conspiracy Theories at http://www.obamaconspiracy.org/birthers-from-a-to-z/#0. The statement responses can be read at http://righttruth.typepad.com/right_truth/2013/12/truthful-commentary.html#comments.
The comments by smrstrauss cannot be left to stand without a reply to them. Not replying to the preposterous smrstrauss comments would be an insult to the truth and a disregard of the facts. The smrstrauss comments are repeated below in Times New Roman Font 12 and indented. The smrstrauss grammar discrepancies are noted with (sic: correction). The TRUTHFUL ANSWERS thereto are in Arial Font 12, and not indented.
The smrstrauss Statement Responses and the TRUTHFUL ANSWERS
Smrstrauss Statement Response 1
The “born in Kenya” story is the height of the loony side of the birther (sic: Birther) movement. It is based on forgeries like that of Lucas D. Smith, and falsifications–such as the claim that Obama’s Kenyan grandmother (sic: step-grandmother) said that he was born in Kenya— (sic: –) when she actually said right on the same tape that he was born IN HAWAII, and she said in another interview that the first that her family in Kenya had heard of Obama’s birth was in a letter FROM HAWAII.
Lucas D. Smith, a convicted felon, claimed that he went to Kenya and got Obama’s birth certificate at a hospital in Mombasa. But Lucas D. Smith has constantly refused to show proof that he, Smith, had ever gone to Kenya. All that he would have to do would be to show a Kenya stamp on a page of a passport, but Lucas D. Smith has refused to do that, constantly, and he has also constantly refused to say why he will not show that proof. (Moreover, his “birth certificate” uses US date formats [month/day/year] and not the day/month/year format used in Kenya.)
Laying aside for a moment the overwhelming proof that Obama was born in Hawaii, the evidence that Obama was NOT born in Kenya is also very strong. There were a grand total of 21 people who came to the USA from Kenya in 1961. Of these only seven were US citizens. And (Do not begin a sentence with and. It is childish. Barack Hussein Obama and Michelle Obama do this all of the time!) the birther (sic: Birther) myth has always been that Obama’s parents went there and returned by plane, but only one person came to the USA from Kenya in 1961 by plane and that person was, wait for it, NOT a US citizen. And (Do not begin a sentence with and. It is childish. Barack Hussein Obama and Michelle Obama do this all of the time!) Obama’s father did not go to Kenya in 1961 either (making it unlikely that his mother did, since travel late in pregnancy was rare, and even more rare (sic: rarer) without the husband going along). WND has proved with a FOI Act request that Obama senior stayed in Hawaii throughout 1961.
And (Do not begin a sentence with and. It is childish. Barack Hussein Obama and Michelle Obama do this all of the time!) the Kenyan government investigated the “born in Kenya” story, and found that it was not true.
“Jon Chessoni, a first secretary at the Kenyan Embassy in Washington, can’t understand why his office gets so many baseless questions about whether (sic: whether or not [only two choices.] Whether alone is used with more than two choices.) Barack Obama was born in Kenya.
“ (sic: ‘) It’s madness,” (sic: ’) said Chessoni on Monday.“ (sic: ‘) His father, in 1961, would not even have been in Kenya. When this matter first came up, the Kenyan government did its research and confirmed that these are all baseless claims.”” (sic: ’”)
The contention by smrstrauss that "(Obama's Kenyan step-grandmother said) right on the same tape that he was born IN HAWAII, and she said in another interview that the first that her family in Kenya had heard of Obama’s birth was in a letter FROM HAWAII." is not the true representation of the situation. It reeks of being selective information and not the complete information. This is often the case when the so-called facts are reported by obots!
We read the following about the taped interview with Obama's step-grandmother at http://www.wnd.com/2009/08/107524/.
