HONOLULU, HI – Potentially damning new evidence has emerged to support the ‘birthers’ claim that Barack Obama’s presidency was somehow a decades-long conspiracy involving the CIA, Muslims, leftist 60’s radicals, and community organizer Saul Alinsky.
A former classmate, who wishes to remain anonymous at this time, says he attended kindergarten with Obama, known then simply as “Barry”, at the Noelani Elementary School in Honolulu in 1966-67, and swears he heard him tell the entire class that he would be President of the United States someday.
“I distinctly remember him saying that”, the former classmate stated.
“I remember it, because it was one of those days where the teacher asked everyone in class to say what they wanted to be when they grew up. And everyone was saying stuff like policeman, fireman, doctor, you know, normal things like that. When she got to Barry, he stood up and smiled and said, ‘I’m going to be president someday’. We all laughed, because, you know at the time, a black kid growing up to be president of the United States someday was impossible”, he continued.
After being reprimanded by their teacher for making fun of their classmate’s seemingly impossible ambitions, the one-time kindergartner stated that she then went on to use it as a teachable moment to talk about how anyone, even a black kid from Hawaii, could grow up and be president.
“You know, she definitely let us know that it was not okay. We all sort of felt bad after that, because we all liked Barry. He was definitely a cool kid”, he stated.
He also remembered Obama as a quiet, polite and well-spoken.
“He had an air of confidence about him, but it wasn’t like he was arrogant or anything. He definitely stood out, that’s for sure. To be honest, looking back now, I’m not surprised he became president”, he continued.
The former classmate also went on to confirm the rumors that the young Obama was always drawing pictures of elephants, giraffes, and lions, a claim which many birthers have used as further evidence of Obama’s African origin.
Jerome Corsi, best-selling author of Capricorn One: NASA, JFK, and the Great "Moon Landing" Cover-Up, and arguably the movement’s most outspoken proponent, has written a book on the controversy called, Where’s Your REAL Birth Certificate, Boy?, was quoted as saying the story was yet another tantalizing piece of the puzzle regarding Obama’s murky past. He also went on to say that the anecdote about the pictures wasn’t necessarily the ‘smoking gun’ proof of Obama’s Kenyan birth but, when taken with all the other evidence, very compelling.
“First, we had the story about the retired U.S. Postal Service carrier who delivered mail to the Ayers in a Chicago suburb in the late 80’s and early 90’s and claims to have met a young Obama in front of their home, who signed a sworn affidavit that Obama told him, long before he ever got into politics, that he was going to become president of the United States”, Mr. Corsi was quoted as saying.
“And now, we have this story that Obama was telling his kindergarten classmates in the late 60's, long before he ever reached puberty, that he was going to be president of the United States. When you take everything together, and you contemplate the fact that he was also drawing detailed pictures of the African savannah at 5 years old, the evidence is just overwhelming that he’s a foreign born usurper who’s been groomed since childhood by sinister anti-American forces for his future role as a puppet of the New World Order”, he continued.
As for whether or not his former classmate thinks this story is evidence of a larger plot, he doesn’t discount it, as he distinctly remembers Obama being picked up from school every day by a couple of men in dark suits, hats, and sunglasses.
“The best way I can describe them is the way people talk about the Men in Black. Who knows, maybe Obama really is a time-traveling Martian. Weirder things have happened, right?”
