The following story is from 2011, but it’s making the rounds again.
Birther attorney Stephen Pidgeon has a “new” book out called The Obama Error in which he claims that he found a record for a name change from “Barak Mounir Ubayd” to “Barack Hussein Obama” on October 14th, 1982 in Skookumchuck, British Columbia. The interview in which Pidgeon says this is titled “Obama Changed His Name in Canada?” but Ubayd is the one who changed a name. Assuming for the moment that the story is true, what possible relevance does it have to the President who was born Obama and never lived in Canada?
However, we don’t have to assume. After extensive research, Obama Conspiracy Theories has tracked this story to its roots, and learned the stunning truth:
I wonder if Pidgeon realizes that “Mounir Ubayd” is an anagram of “I mourn Dubya.”
Pidgeon also says that Obama ran for the Senate on the Socialist Workers Party in 1996 (this was hushed up). (Maybe it was the “Satirical Workers Typos.”)
