“Obama was born in America. That is, that’s obvious.”
By special arrangement with author Dr. Greg Doudna, Obama Conspiracy Theories is most pleased to be able to offer its readers Greg’s true, unedited, transcript of the infamous transatlantic telephone conversation transatlantic between Barack Obama’s step grandmother, Sarah Obama, and American anti-abortion activist and street preacher Ron McRae.
Probably the single most convincing piece of evidence that has led an amazing number (perhaps as many as 10% in an Ohio State University poll) of Americans to believe the incredible story that President Obama is not a “natural born citizen” is an the edited transcript of this recording from a fake-named Kenyan (“Kweli Shuhubia”) filed in the now-dismissed Berg v. Obama lawsuit and YouTube Video of the transcript superimposed on an edited audio version of the tape. The altered tape and transcript is discussed here in our feature article: Obama’s Grandmother says he was born….
Mr. Doudna writes:
The full tape transcription makes clear that this phone conversation has not been represented accurately. There never was a statement by Sarah Obama at any point in this phone call saying or intending to say that Barack Obama Jr. was born in Kenya. Sarah Obama herself said that Obama was born in Hawaii and never said differently. There was a confusion over the meaning of where Mrs. Obama was “present” when Obama was born in Hawaii, but not over whether Obama was born in Hawaii. The Berg lawsuit affidavit transcript quotes a portion of the phone call in which, according to the Berg transcript, Sarah Obama answered that she was “present” when Obama was born (actually others speaking for Mrs. Obama, not Mrs. Obama, may have given that particular answer). But the Berg transcript omits the rest of the phone call which shows the sense intended was not that Barack Obama Jr. was born in Kenya, but rather that Mrs. Obama was present in Kenya when Barack Obama Jr. was born in Hawaii.
The full version of the tape has been available here on Obama Conspiracy Theories for some time. Now the full, unedited transcript of that conversation is available here and it says in no uncertain terms that Barack Obama was born in Hawaii!
MCRAE: OK I’m sorry. I, I thought she said she was present when he was born. I was–”
TRANSLATOR OGOMBE (sounding exasperated): No, no! The, the woman was not present. She was uh not, a what–you see, she was here in Kenya, and Obama was born in America. That is, that’s obvious.
So here it is:
