Kenya's 'Change' They Could Believe In

Another piece of the puzzle that is Barack Obama.

The Kenya connection: Barack Obama and Raila Odinga of Kenya's socialist Orange Democratic Movement, are cousins (Obama's father, Barack Hussein Obama Sr., was from Nyangoma-Kogel, Kenya). In 2006, Barack Obama joined Raila Odinga in Kenya to help him campaign for election as Kenya's president. There were accusations of corrupt voting within the already volatile region. In January 2008, the International Campaign to End Genocide issued an alert and labeled the level of genocide a "Stage 6." Odinga, of the Orange Democratic Movement, lost the election by a small margin. What ensued following the election was widespread ethnic cleansing of the Kikuyu opposition. Georgette Gagnon of Human Rights Watch stated: "We have evidence that Orange Democratic Movement politicians and local leaders actively fomented post-election violence."

And maybe you heard about Jerome Corsi (listen to radio interview, bottom of page) being deported from Kenya on a trip to release an anti-Obama book. You guessed it, Barack Obama's cousin may have a hand in sending him home. (October 7, 2008)

*** UPDATE: 10/12/2008 *****
The Washington Times today published "HYMAN: Obama's Kenyan Ghosts," exposing the depth of Obama's ties with Raila Odinga.

Initially, Mr. Odinga was not the favored opposition candidate to stand in the 2007 election against President Mwai Kibaki, who was seeking his second term. However, he received a tremendous boost when Sen. Barack Obama arrived in Kenya in August 2006 to campaign on his behalf. Mr. Obama denies that supporting Mr. Odinga was the intention of his trip, but his actions and local media reports tell otherwise.

... Mr. Obama spoke on behalf of Mr. Odinga at numerous rallies. ... "The [Kenyan] people have to suffer over corruption perpetrated by government officials," Mr. Obama announced. "Kenyans are now yearning for change," he declared. The intent of Mr. Obama's remarks and actions was transparent to Kenyans - he was firmly behind Mr. Odinga.


Mr. Obama's judgment is seriously called into question when he backs an official with troubling ties to Muslim extremists and whose supporters practice ethnic cleansing and genocide. It was Islamic extremists in Kenya who bombed the U.S. Embassy in 1998, killing more than 200 and injuring thousands. None of this has dissuaded Mr. Obama from maintaining disturbing loyalties.


From the video:

  • Raila Odinga is the leader of Kenya's largest opposition party, the socialist Orange Democratic Movement.

  • "The flamboyant politician became popular with Kenya's poor by pledging to distribute the country's wealth more evenly." -- CNN

  • Campaigned as a "champion of the poor" while promising to defend the underpriveledged

  • August 2007, Odinga signed an agreement with the National Muslim Leaders Forum to institute Islamic law in exchange for the group's support.

Louis Farrakhan is the Nation of Islam leader and has placed his support behind Barack Obama. Obama former paster of 20+ years, Reverend Jermiah Wright of Trinity United Church, holds Farrakhan in great esteem and honored him just this year with a lifetime achievement award at Trinity.

  • Farrakhan has repeatedly made hate-filled statements targeting Jews, whites, America, and homosexuals. He has called whites “blue-eyed devils” and the “anti-Christ.” He has described Jews as “bloodsuckers” who control the government, the media, and some black organizations. (Newsmax.com, "Obama's Minister Honored Farrakhan," January 14, 2008)

  • Odinga's supporters engaged in widespread ethnic cleansing of the Kikuyu opposition, and Odinga continued to fan the flames of genocide.

  • Odinga vowed to end Kenya's cooperation with the United States in the War on Terror.

Raila Odinga & Barack Obama: The Connection
Raila Odinga and Barack Obama, Odinga says, are cousins, both descended from the same tribe.

In 2006, as a member of the U.S. Senate, Barack Obama campaigned for Raila Odinga in Kenya -- at taxpayer expense.

Some Have Argued That Barack Obama's Terrorist Ties in Chicago Mean Nothing ... can they defend his support and backing of the brutality unleashed in Kenya? Massive killings in the name of Islam? You'll recognize that socialism is a common theme--redistribution of wealth is promised by both. You'll recognize that voting scandals are a parallel of what's happening in the U.S. Will you recognize that only YOU can stop Barack Obama from bringing America to her knees?

Fiery Speaker with the Populist Touch
"Although his opponents have portrayed him as a socialist who could damage the economy, Odinga insists the business community has nothing to fear. His manifesto policies are similar to those of Kibaki, except with regard to devolution of power, which Odinga insists is necessary to ensure an equitable distribution of wealth."
